The 6th District Needs
A Man in Congress
W. J. Taylir Has Always Stood for
the People. Compare His Record
with That of Kinkaid.
w. j.
Congressman Kinkaid is causing to
be printed in tunny of Jho republican
papers in the district . a long article
that consumes a column and a half of
space but which says about as much n
an avcragely intelligent writer would

put in a three inch paragraph.
And while much interest is being
J given to the statu candidates for gov-
' ernor, the voters of the sixth district
should not forget that what we need is
a man in congress a man who In his
record has always stood for the inter
ests of the people, Such u man it W.
J. Tuvlor- The. rccoul of Congicssnmn
Kinkaid shows that he'has nlua-,8 been
identified with the corporation inter
ests. Look over the record of Kinkaid. lie
lias had eight yeais in congress aud
what has he done? We have only en
joyed one matter of laud legislation,
and that of questionable value. This
district has tremendous possibilities
for irrigation yet very little has been
done along this line when compared
with Colorado, Wyoming or Arizona.
Let him explain how he voted on
tho question of reducing the tariff on
barbwire. nails, building material, and
i- the hundreds of other items of paitisu-
"" lar interest to the consumers of the
Sixth district. Let him explain why
he "stood pat" with the Aldrich-Smoot-Cannon
machine on the tarfu vote.
He might tell us why he deserted Con
gressman Norris of the Fifth district
when he was leading the fight against
Cannon and why he was opposed to
the house appointing its own members
on the Baluuger investigating commit
tee. Not the least interesting to the
voters would be his record as a grabber
of coal lands in Alaska when "Dear
Mr. Ballinger" was distributing pie
among the members of congress in
payment for their support past and ex
pected. Or it the debonair congress
man seeks to getjtnjo print let Itfiii un
dertake to explain to his constituency
why he voted for Caution for speaker,
after having promised faithfully 011 the
eve of his last election that he would
go to the ditch iu opposition to the
"stand-pat" speaker.
His record is not a record to he
proud of. The people of the Sixth
district are too intelligent to permit
such misrepresentation to continue.
They will select an able, aggressive,
capable man, one with Bryan- Rpose-velt-LaFolIette-Cummins
principles to
do their voting for them- Instead of
a non-resident, land grabbing congress
mau they will elect a resident, original,
hoinesteading. fearless man and that
man will be W, J. Taylor.
Vm. B. Easthiun of Broken
Bow is the democratic and peo
ple's independent candidate for

well known to the voters of the
state, having served six years
as Deputy b Collector of Internal
Revenue. "Two years ago' ho
was nominated for the oftice lie
now seeks but lost by only a few
hundred votes. ITe will make si
good man for the .place and wo
hopp will bo elected.

Jl.-i.uOO.OOO, were destroyed In the re
cent forest fires In the national for
ests In Montana and northern Idaho.
The total area burned over iu this
one district was put at 1,250,000 acres.
The first rough estimate or the loss
In the district was completed by offi
cials of tho government forest service.
It shows that the heaviest losses were
In two Idaho forests, the Coeur d'Alene,
where 3,000,000 board reet of timber
was killed or destroyed aim more than
450,000 acres burned over; and the
Clear Water, where 1,000,000,000 reet
was killod and 300,000 acres burned
It Is believed that last summer's
fires either burned or killed between
1 and 2 per cent or tho total stand or
forest timber. At the present rate of
cutting from national forests, 6,000,
000,000 feet Is equal to twelve years
supply, but It Is less man one-sixth
of a single year's cut In the entire
country, or enough to lceep all lumber
