They believe that Cozier, for U. S. at torney, will be all that will be given them for the state at targe and they doo't want him.

A paper up there after complimenting Senator Sboup on the excellent ap pointments be has already secured for the state has this to say about Mr. Coxier: It Is possible that Mr. Cozier may be forced upon the people of this state as district attorney, but it won't be possible for all the powers In this country from president down, to make the people of the northern part of this slate recognize him as their represen tative.

For the information of our readers who have been anxious to get some thing direct from Alaska we publish,by permission, the following private letter From Dr. I. H. Moore who is now at Juneau to Receiver Geo B. Roger*, of Hlackfoot: Juneau, Alaska October, 22nd. Dear Friend George:— I have been here just long enough to gain an insight into the true situation. The gold fields will surprise the world more than ever in another year. A number of men are hero at the hotel who have just come out from the Klondike. They ail tell the lame story. Not a single man has ever given the diggings a bad name. This Is a good town, has modern conven iences, such as water, electric lights etc. It runs wide open but there is no shoot ing or evidences of the bad man. There are five churches here, a splendid hos pital and many evidences of a higher civilization. Men are here from all hn ( over the country' looking for opportuni ties to make money. Take it all in all I think that this country furnishes more opportunities for making more in the next few years than anywhere in the country. I would advise people not to come until early spring as they cannot find anything to do in mid-winter. I am going over to Dyea and Skaguay to see what is going on. Skaguay has 2.000 population, Dyea 1.01X) and Sheep Camp 1,000. Every one of these places will have several thousand during the rush, but it »ill not be a permanent thing. It rains up here almost every day. Whiskey is 25 cents per drink. Goods in the stores arc sold at very reasonable rates. Whiskey is high be cause it is all smuggled in. When I learn more of the country thsn I now know I will write you again I don't know what I will do, I may go home or I may- stop awhile. With kind regards. Your sincere friend, I. H. Moore. Sc tr Fork's Value. Unless some surprising mishap over takes them it seems pretty certain that tho Tammany candidates will sweep tho field in the Greater New York con test. The betting is all in their favor at odds of two to one. TJie history of political contests in this country shows that there is no surer sign than this of the driftof public thought. The George movement which at its inception gave rise to fears of serions injury to the reg ular Democratic ticket, is more than counterbalanced by the Republican de fection to Low. The Indications at present are that these two irregular candidates will muster about equal streagth nt tho polls If they are both left In the field on tho day the votcB are east. All Democrats that realize that noth ing stimulates party courage so much os victory must rejoice at tho prosjiects of Tiimniiiny's success. Whatever the society's faults are, however grievous may be tho complaints against the eon duet of certain of its leaders post and present, tho fact remains thut Tammany is tho only organized Democratic force east of tho Allegheny mountains. If it lie destroyed, the Democracy will have no force left for waging aggressive and determined warfare in the Empire State with its thirty-four eleotorlal votes and Die enormous moral Induction which thU strength give* in the politic!« of the country. There ia no danger that any cardinal principle of Democracy will suffer by the entrenchment of Tam many In power. The party« platforms have always been Tammany'« platform« when the final issue* were made up, and it« can d idate* have always been the can didates of Tammany. There is good reason to believe that a Tammany triumph in the first strug gle for control of Greater New York •rill presage Democratic victory in the Empire State in 1900. The big advan tage given to the party by the immense power that will come to Tammany in coitrol of the huge municipality is ap parent. Following the rule that has governed the electoral vote of New York during the life of the present generation a Democratic victory is due in that state in 1900. From 1668 to 1806 New York has alternately gone Democratic and Republican. It went for Seymour in the first year named. Then it switched back into the Republican column in "2 against Greeley. Tilden carried it in *76, Garfield in *80. Cleveland in '84, Harri son in*88, Cleveland again in V2 and McKinley in *96. Viewed, then, from this standpoint, another Democratic triumph is due there in 1900 if meantime the party's fighting spirit is not des troyed by breaking down Tammary.— St. Louis Republic.
