We notice from the Blaine
County Booster that Carl Ams-
"berry ot Mason City is the asso
ciate editor of that paper. Carl
is the oldest son of J. M. Aiiis-
foerry and has practically been
"brought up in a printing office
and ought to make good. The
REPUBLICAN hopes for his suc
The Beacon's offer to "give $10
for a valid reason why a man
living in Custer county shoulc
vote to uphold a protective tariff1
seems to be all wind. We gave
the Beacon four good reasons two
weeks ago and as yet have not
seen a red cent. Until we can
lave some real evidence that the
offer is genuine we do not deem it
wise to advance other reasons
for fear of being accused of cast
ing our "pearls before swine. "
Governor Shallenberger has
decided not to call an extra ses
sion of the legislature in order
to pass an initiative and refrcn-
< lum law. His decision not to
call the extra session in face of
the fact that the Bryan forces
liad secured a pledge from three-
fifths of the members of the legis
Jature that they would support
the bill would indicate that the
governor and Mr. Bryan are not
eating their ice cream out of the
Same dish in this campaign.
The time has come when everj
body in Broken Bow should urge
the building of better sidewalks
Most of our board walks are in a
bad state of repair. Then there
s re several residence streets with
'no walks simply because one o
1 wo parties do not care to go to
the expense of putting in cemcn
i r brick walks on their property
unless they build their walks so
1 hey can get out without wading
i hrough mud. Let the agitation
liecome general. If necessary the
council should plan a system of
walks throughout the several
tosidence districts leading to the
business part of town and pass
on ordinance meat the whole
pystern compelling walks put in
[ * hc remark is frequently heard
o be made by strangers that
broken Bow is behind the times
with her side walks. This should
not be. Let us begin at once to
mt in a complete line of walks.
It is true that Kinkaid did
> rovc of some service to the peo-
ile in procuring the passage of
, he Kinkaid homestead law but
a similar bill had been introduced
by his predecessor , Judge Neville
ind that Kinkaid simply reap
ed the reward that should have
come to Neville. Beacon
We have seen the statement
before that Judge Neville was
the author of the Kinkaid bill ,
) Ut the statement is false.
The section homestead law
was originated in Broken Bow.
The matter was suggested to
uembers of the state legislature

natter of the Detrich bill was

These two men from Broken
Bow urged upon members of the
state legislature to pass a reso-
ution opposing the leasing bill
and suggested that instead that
he homestead law be amended
allowing 640 acre homesteads in
he sand hill country. The
memorial to congress was passed
and forwarded , out of which the
Kinkaid. Judge Kinkaid is
entitled to full credit for draft-
ng and securing the passage of
he Kinkaid law. The whole
matter was originated and pas
sed after Judge Neville's death
CONGRESSMAN KINKAID'S CLAIM
Did Not Enter A Coal Claim as Claimed
It is interesting to note how
the opposition will magnifiy and
misconstrue a fact in order to
make a political capital.
That such will be done is not
confined to the democrats only ,
rival candidates in the republi-
lican party for personal gain
resorts to democratic tickets. As
we stated last week any one le
gally qualified may file on a
homestead or a coal claim , but
Congressman Kinkaid did not
enter a coal claim in Alaska , but
did buy a quarter section of land ,
with coal on a part of it , of the
entryman who complied -with the
law and made final proof thereon
The title to the land was there
fore private property , and con
sequently exempt from conservation
vation policies and legislative
enactment. The right to buy
this coal land was equal ant
similar to the right any citizen
has to buy land which has been
homesteaded , after the eutryinan
has complied with the law. Ac
cordingly , Glavis himself swore
there was nothing wrong in the
transaction and Attorney Bran-
deis , also representing Pinchot ,
said it was neither wrong nor
improper. Congress Kinkaid was
looking over deeded land in
Custer county with the view of
investing in it. Has he not as
good a right to buy deeded lane
in Alaska as in Custer county ?
N T. GADD'S ANNOUNCEMENT
FOR COUNTY ATTORNEY.
Having Illed with the proper odlcer. I
now announce myself a candidate for the
olllce of county Attorney subject to the ap
proval of the republican party at the Primary
election to be held August 10th , 1910.
It is perhaps needless for me to say ; 1
am unalterably adatnst the Liquor Inter-
osts. I am for county option , tor state anil
nation wide prohibition.
I am a republican , but am most emphat
ically for the revision of theTarUf down ward
and for the removal of tariff upon things
essentially necessary to the comfort , health
happiness and prosperity of the citizen.
My present term ol omcc does not expire
until January 1911 , my time and ability there
fore Is the property of the citizens of the
county , of all political complexion ; that be.
Ing true I WILI NOT MAKK A CANVASS.
1 have not been absent from any meeting ol
the board of supervisors have been on hand
at all times when called upon by county
olllcers from the least to the highest , lurlucl-
Ing Township and School district olllcers :
When needed by the private citizen , cither
over the I'hone , or In person t have been on
hand by day or night , and this I will have to
bay at the end of my term of olllce rcgvrdless
of the results of the primary election ; If you
need the county attorney , you will tlnd him
ot his ofUce , not out In campaign , using your
time to turthcr his personal Interests. II
absent , It will be because of business , and In
' that event , there will be a competent lawyer
In charge of the olllce.
I am human , and no doubt have made
mistaken during my term of onlce. but I have
no excuses to offer neither any appologles to
make ; I havesoueht to discharge duty to
the best of my ability from mv view point
thU I will continue to doj I will thank : vou
for your consideration and will appreciate
' Ilespcctfully Yourn ,

ANDERSON POR SUPERVISOR ,
Having filed as a candidate for Supervisor
nt the third supervisor district subject to the
will of the republican primary , I will ap-
> rcclaloyour support. If nominated and
elected I will use my best efforts for the ad
vancement of the best Interests of the tils-
rlcl and the county In general.
MYERS FOR COUNTY ATTORNEY ,
t am a candidate for county attorney sub
ject to Uiu approval of thu republican pil
ii.ii If- , .
UMVIN K. MrKHS.
PRANK C , BfiOMAN.
Candidate for Congress.
lam a candidate for the republican
nomination for Congress from the sixth
district. I believe in good government ,
a square deal and that the Roosevelt
policies should be put into operation ,
have always been opposed to boss rule
and machine politics. I believe in repre
sentative government , in government by
the people and not by corporations. ]
believe in loyalty to republican priuci
pies and the protective tariff but do not
believe that downward revision has been
fully accomplished ; particularly with
with reference to the woolen , cotton
lumber and wire schedules.
I believe a congressman should have
convictions and courage enough to vote
them ; that he should not dodge , side
step and vote "present ; " that he shoulc
not insurge at home and stand pat in
Washington , That he should keep his
ante-election promises and vote agains
Mr. Cannon for speaker after having
promised the people to do so ; and he-
should not vote to tax barbed wire al
$ i 5 oo per ton after publicly announcing
that it should be placed to free list.
A congressman is elected by the public
and paid by the public to serve the
public and not to serve himself. He
should be satisfied to render public ser
vice for the public salary and not seek to
further enrich himself at the expense ol
the public by acquiring coal lands in
Alaska belonging to the public domain.
His duty is to conserve the public re
sources and not to absorb them unto
himself and Mr. Ballinger's assistance in
acquiring a coal claim in Alaska is not
sufficient proof of either regularity or
ethics of the tiausactiou.
