Entered at the postolllco at Alliance,
Nebraska, for tranmision through the
malls, as second-class matter.
I Subscription, $1.50 per year in advance.
I hereby announce myself as a
candidate for State Represents
tive of the 53rd representative
district of Nebraska, subject to
tho Primaries of the Democratic
and People's Independent Parties
to be held Aug. 10, 1010.

platform this year, the republi
cans ought to do it. Mr. Ham
mond says very truly: No be
liever in popular government
can consistently oppose it. Only
those who are afraid to trust
public questions to the people
argue against it. The people
for whose government laws are
made to have a right to say di
rectly for themselves what those
laws shall be, To deny them
this would bo a species of pro
hibition so arbitrary and incom
patible that evenji sane brewer
could not endorse it. It pro
vides a convenient method of
submitting'for popular approval
any public question that m-ay
arise. Can there be any valid
objection to that? So far as
heard from the Omaha Bee is
tho only paper of any promin
ence on the republican side that
opposes it. The principal mov
ing cause for this, as it appears
to us, is that it is because some
populists saw it first. Blair
Pilot, 5-18-10.
Twcntv-flve yen is in Western Ne
braskn, nnd n thorough acquaintance
with conditions surrounding the people
of the sixth congressional district
prompts mo to urge my fitness for
nomination nt your bauds.
1 hope you will take the pains to in
vestigate my record, and give me an
opportunity to show where I stand on
live questions, unless you already
know , And as a result that y.ou w.
give me your support August Kith.
The district has 1eet1 misrepresented
long enough. We want no gum-shoe,
soft-pedal congressman, hut u matt
typical of the west. We need repre
sentation in Washington.
A man of action, a thinker, 11 builder:
a man Of red blood, whd Mes so much
to do nnd so little done that I"! Hunts
to tear into the work, A forty-horse
powcr-ix'eyl'nder-man Notu man of
mere promises, of extravagant claims,
nor just becnuse someone thinks he can
be elected?'.
Six years ago. this district was 8000
republican. I reduced Kinkaid's ma
jority about 3.1UU four years ago. Two
years ngo'Judge Westover clipped oil
another 2.100. Last year the district
was about, .100 republican.
Yet wo cannot win with a doubtful
man. If there is any question as to
where ho stands on Cunnonlsm, Payne
Aldrichlsm, lialllngerism, Taftism. or
any of the pertinent questions effect
ing national legislation.
It U my earnest desire to learn some
thing while this contest is on, in which
the people are so much interested. I
want to bo fitted for congress whether
I win or not. To that end, I want the
opinions of as many as will take the
trouble to write me opinions on issues
and on candidates. Frankly tell me if
you have heard anything either for or
against me, and it will aid me to im
prove. Any man grows better if he- is
bombarded' with good advice.
If youro for me, t"ll me why; and
if atrainsUnc tell me why also.
Thanking you in advance for any
favors frhbwu, I am.
Yours to cnmmlud,

the Administration Measures Passed
by Both House.
Washington, Juuo 21. Congress
leaders confidently expect to wind up
ItiQ business, of the present session
this week and adjourn not later than
Saturday. If the session Is carried be
yond that time it will be because of
amendments to the general deliclency
bill or complications which may arise
iu connection with the omnibus and
public buildings bill. Somo members
look for tho adjournment to take placo
as early as Thursday.
It Is pointed out by Republican lead
ers that there never has been a con
gress where the president has obtained
the amount of legislation that nas re
sulted from the demands of President
Taft. Starting In on the demand tor
a revision of the tariff, ho procured
this at an extraordinary session. Then
at the beginning of tho present ses
sion, he demanded legislation ameuda
tory of tho Interstate commerce laws,
enabling the president to put sue a for
ward conservation policy, almlttlns
Arizona nnd New Mexico. to statehood,
creating postal savings banks and on
the subject of the use of injunctions
Dills on all these subjects have
passed both 'branches of congress,
with tho exception of the antl-lnjunc-tlon
measure. That will have to wait
until the next session, but It Is said
the prospects are good for Ub passase
at that time. All of the regular sup
pi) bills htuo passed both houses, ex
cept the general deficiency bill. That
was passed by the house Saturday,
and will bo reported to the sonate not
later than tomorrow. Unless there is
trouble In connection with a scheme
for the retirement of superannuated
employees of the government, which
tho bill tuny carry, it is thought its
passage will take not more than one
The postal savings bank bill is still
before tho senate, it came from the
house in the form of an ntnended bill,
and, Senator Carle moved that, the
nenatV concur In the bouse amend
ments. Opposition developed and the
motion has been debated Intermittent
ly Blnce the bill returned from the
house. President Taft approves of
the house bill, and It seems reasonably
certain that the senate will accept It.
The rivers and harbors bill Is await
ing the president's signature, and he
will soon have the omnibus nubile
buildings bill, which was reported to
the house Saturday With both of
these measures beforo him ho is In a
position to command that action bo
taken on such remaining legislation a3
he feels should pass.
