'Washington , March 7 , ( Spe
cial. ) Representative Kinkaid
of Nebraska today declared that
be has every reason to beleive
that'hewill , be renominated and
re-elected. His belief , he said ,
is baded on the numerous lettcrb
he re'ceives dailyfrom , the voters
in his district urging him to run
again and' pledging him their
support. Speakitfg of reports
that his interest in Alaska coal
lands are proving harmful , Mr
Kmkaid 'said that his transac
tions in connection with .the-
acquisition of land in the Green
group were ' open and above
board. ' ' ' '
"I have never felt it necessary
to defend myself in this connect
ion , " , said.MMr. Kinkaid. " 1
point with pride tto the sworn
testimony of Louis R. Glavis ,
the witness' who brought the
charges against Secretary Ball-
iriger. He has , s'worn , that m )
cpnnection with the Alaska coul
lands was in no way improper ,
and Mr. Brandeis has expressed
a > similar opinion. I have nothing
ing'Id 'be ashamed of in regard
to my purchase of Alaska coal
tMr. . Kinkaid ridiculed the sug
gestions which are being made
in. Nebraska * that his health is
poor and for that reason he
. , should retire. . <
"I am , better \n health today
* than at any time since I have
been a member of congress , "
' said. Mr , Kinkaid. MMy friends
' in' Nebraska need not worry on
' that score. "
In support -of his statement
that his constituents uare pre-
1 pared to send him back to con
gress , Mr. Kinkaid gaveout | .the
> fallowing statement :
"Hon. M. P. Kinkaid , Wash
ington , "B.C. Dear Sir : Repos
' ' ing 'specialKConfidence in your
ability' and integrityand being
' ? / / further prompted by the general
* * favorably expressed sentiment of
/ the voters in this congressional
' " district commending your pre
vious services.andjrecord 'as ' , con
, gressman , and realizing the' fact
* that you are the logical stand
ard bearer.that.can'with a de
" \ grccj of ) certainty , bejsuccessful
' at the polls next November , as
YOU were two yeara ago in the
f " ' face of the strongest political
opposition'caused largely by the
so-called 'Bryan campaign , ' we
beg leave.teaiibjnit that aside
from the loss the people would
sustain in the matter.of legislat-
tioai and , their varied 'manifold
interests by your retirement
from , congress , it would also be
detrimental to party interests.
1 "We further submit that it
will give-us great pleasure as
representatives of the republican
party of this district to carry out
thedetails , necessary for the pro
per placing of your name before
the people as a candidate for con-
gres at thejcoming primaries
"Wave the kindness to advise
at your ettYlieSt"convenience i :
this will b&accept'abie io'you. "
This is signed by central com-
mitfjse of one county.
Ajx extract from a letter writ
ten tjy a prominent Sixth district
republican to * another inquiring
of hin ] whether Mr , Kinkaid * will
be a/candidate for congress again
"But it is my judgment he will
be. As to conditions in this
county , all the republicans are , ,
fur Kinkaid. Every leader , every . ,
worker of the p.irty and the rank
and file are with and for him.
Kinkaid can be re.elcclcdjf Dom
inated and Ib , HJve ( that'if he is
a candidate that he will secure
the nomination. I think it uu-
wise to talk anv other candidate
than Mr. Kinkaid this year. "

Judge W. F- Norris , formerly
of 'McCobkNcbr. . , ' Who For a
number of years' 'represented the
United Statts"ih a judicial ca
pacity in the bench in the Philip
pine Islands , was the principal
speaker at the monthly meeting
of the Nebraska Ass'n held ut
"Neighborhood House" in this
city last week.
"Neighborhood House" is in
all essentials a settlement House ,
and is under the charge of former
Nebraskans , Mr. and Mrs. Neligh
Mr. Neligh being for many years
a resident of West Point , They
have been settlement workers for
many years. It has been but
recently that "Neighborhood
House , " which , is located in
southw.est Washington , amid
squalor .and want , has came to
the front as an institution which
has changed conditions inmuas-
utably in a neighborhood bound
ed on one side by the. Potomac
river , , on another side , by stables ,
and still on another side by a
garbage plant , the fourth side
open to dumping grounds ,
government storage places and
Judge Norris faced a hundred
or more Nebraskans , and he was
accorded close attention in his
heart to heart talk about con
ditions i" the Philippines. While
the address , seemingly was ex
temporaneous , it showed careful
preparation , close analysis and a
statesmanlikci arraignment of
conditions as he found them dur
ing his seven years on the-Philip-
Summed up , it was a complete
endorsement of the policies of
resident Taft , whom he regard
ed as one of the greatest-mission
aries who had ever carried , nbt
only religion , but the flag , to a
people who seemed ready to re
ceive enlighttnent , and who he
believed regarded the Stars and
Stripes as the beason standing
for Square dealing tn the Orient ;
and that around the emblem of
the states the nations of the
world would foregather at the
close of the present century.
Almost every county in Ne
braska was represented at the
meeting , and it looked like "Old
Settlers' Day" in Nebraska to see
the number of well known and
familiar people present.
Senator Isidor Raynor , of
Maryland , in his answer to the
speech of Senator Burkett , has
taken occasion to use such
thoughts presented'by the senior
senator from Nebraska on the
Poatal Savings Bank 'bill , by
heafing his speech in the Con
gress Record as follows : "A
Few Obituary Observations Up
on the Constitution. " It will be
recalled that > Senator-Burkct <
paid his compliments to the
senior senator from Maryland ,
who is a strict obstructionist of
the constitution , by stating.that
Senator Haynor , if he had been a
great musician would have al
ways insisted upon singing--re-
queims ; that if he had been a
preacher he would always have
been found delivering homilies
for the departed. Rayuor came
back the other day with a vitri
olic attack upon Senator Burkett ,
forgetful of his. position , as , con
stitutional lawyer ( self-appoi.nt-
ed ) and really .rijade , a Jaughing
stock of himself in his answer to
Burkett's closely prepared speech.
Raynor w s'undoubtedly mad all
"the way through'when he made
his reply to Burkett ; and while
it pqnvul.s d the senators and
interested the galleries , the con
census of opinion is that Burkett
not only had the best ofit , but
thatjiis refusal to reply to Sena
itor JRaynor showed
farther renchinR1 knowledge of
the situation than Ranor ; for
the Postal Bank bill was passed
by every republican voting for it ,
and . . .every democrat voting
against it , save , one. Tha was .
Burkett's triumph. * )
