Republican County Convention
next Tuesday. Cotne out and
sec how republicans do things.
Both the regulars and insur
gents arc liable to be disappoint
ed in their hopes that Col. Koose-
velt will especially espouse their
their cause. The ex-president is
not liable to do anything of the
kind , Tie is a republican and
his efforts in the campaign will
not be to widen tbe party breech
but rather to weld it. No man is
in a better position to do that
than is Col. Roosevelt.
Al. L. Fries for State Senator-
Since lion. M. L. Fries has
withdrawn from the race for gov.
crnor a move has been inaugu
rated to have his name placed on
the republican ticket by petition
as a candidate for State Senator.
This is the case in which the
office is not sought but where the
office is seeking the man.
Mr. Fries made a fine record
when in the Senate a few years
ago and proved himself worthy
of the honor confered.
0. II. Moody Candidate.
Oliver II. Moody of Ansley an
nounces this week through the
columns of the T HPUBUCAN his
candidacy for the legislature.
Mr. Moody is one of Custer
county's most highly respected
and prosperous farmers of the
Clear creek valley. His father
who was an old soldier was one
ot the pioneers of the county who
located in what was known as
the Moody Valley in the early
eighties , where his family was
reared- For several years O.
II. Moody was one of the success
ful teachers of the couuty. In
the days when the pops predomi
nated he was a candidate on the
republican ticket for couuty
superintendent. His loyalty in
the days of the party's adversity
should warrant the true support
of every republican in the dist
The Other Side-of the Question Shown Up.
Kearney , Nebr. , July 2,1910.
Editor Custer County Beacon :
For _ the purpose of correcting a few
errors in a recent editorial in the Custer
County Republican , and to keep history
straight , I sent the following communi
cation to that paper last week , which
they refused to publish. I aui not seek
ing a controversy , but let us have the
the truth , even if it defeats Mr. Kinkaid
fet a ie-nomiiiaUon to his present job.
Kearney , Nebr. , June 27 , 1910.
Editor Custer County Republican :
Will yon allow me to correct a few
errors in your recent editorial concerning
Congressman Kiuknid and his coal lam
speculations ?
Mr. Kinkaid did not buy his coal lauds
from private individuals who had made
final proof thereon , as you imply , ant
he would hardly want to be put in that
position i am thinking. Mr. Kinkaitl
with inside information obtained througl
his position as Congressman , invested in
an Alaskan coal claim , and his name
appears now as one of the stockholders
in the Seattle-Anthracite Coal Co. *
I think if you will investigate further
you will find that none of the Alaskau
coal lauds have yet passed to patent ,
and this forms the basis of the Ballinger-
I'inchot row that has been attracting so
much attention lately. It was the zen
of the coal land grabbers to get the
government to pass the coal lands to
patent that brought the Alaskan con
scandel to the attention of Congress , and
made the investigation necessary by a
special committee , which up to date has
not reported its findings. I can under
stand that in your enthusiasm to defetr
Kinkaid's coal land speculations j o i
are liable to an error in judgment , bul
you are hardly helping out matters very
much when you put him in the position
of buying his holdings from n "dummy"
claimant whom you allege had made
final proof on a coal claim. A couigress-
man's reputation , like Ca-sar's wife
should be above suspicion , and when it
gets to the place where it needs to be
defended by a false statement of facts , it
would seem that it was time for Mr.
Congressman to retire to private life for
meditation and prayer.
The republican party , if i understaw
its tenets , stands for a moral as well as a
legal honesty in its public servants
and a suspicion of a straining of the
former , and still within the pale of the
latter , is hardly the standard of the
ideal congressman.
Yours truly ,
J. II. Chapman ,
( In the Custer County Beacon. )
"An ideal congressman" in the
the estimation of the people is
one who does not envy every
prominent political position he
sees others occupy ; not one , who
when he cannot get what he
wants in his own party will take
the stump against his party nom
inees or resort to the columns of
the opposition press to gain party
prestige. An ideal congressman
is ouc who is loyal to his party
and docs something for the pee
The date of the introductory of
the above article July 2 , 1910 , is
: is misleading as the body of the
letter itself. The letter which
is a copy of the one we received
is post marked Broken Bow July
5 , 1910. It was received too late
for publication that week so we
"had no lime to prepare copy in
reply to its misstatemcnts. We
never refused to publish the letterer
or intimated we would not. The
letter was prepared for the Bea
con before we got the copy. The
KKPUIIUCAN concedes the right
of any person to aspire to office.
[ But we do not. regard it wise nor
good politics for an aspirant nor
his friends to undertake to build
themselves up by using deroga
tory statements against rivals.
We did not care to publish the
article without comments for
this reason.
The facts are there are no
legitimate grounds for any re
publican opposing Mr. Kinkaid's
reelection to the position he has
so honorably filled the past six
His investment in a coal claim
in Alaska is used as a pretex by
the democrats and as well by the
disappointed office seekers and
those who have a personal ax to
grind in the republican ranks.
The' most that the agitation
can do is to weaken Mr.
Kinkaid's chances for reelection
and strengthen his democratic
opponent , as there is no doubt of
his nomination by the republican
primaries. Even the promises of
postoffices to editors of republican
newspapers and of reuumerative
positions to strikers will not give
Mr. Beeman enough votes to get
in sight when the ballots are
The republicans of the sixth
district know both candidates
and know of their standing. One
is known as a presistant doerthe
other as a presistant seeker.
Mr. Chapman the writer of the
above is pretty well known in
Custer county and those who
know him intimately will not
accuse him of being prompted in
his work unselfishly. What
ever may be his motive they
know his opposition to Mr. Kin
kaid is not prompted upon moral
As a matter of observation
Mr. Chapman does not possess
the knowledge of any facts to
warrent the assertions he makes.
There are no facts which will
warrant such assertions. He is
clearly mistaken as to the facts
he asserts. Contrary to his
statement , Mr. Kinkaid did
acquire his title to the coal
claim by purchase of the original
entryrnan , paying him $2800.00
as the purchase price. Mr. Kin
kaid has not made a coal land
entry , He relies upon the com
pliance with the law made by t'he
original entryman of whom he
purchased , as to good faith etc. ,
and will stand or fall , in claiming
a patent , on such compliance.
It is not true that Mr. Kinkaid
"with inside information ob
tained through his position as
Congressman" made his invest
ment. All that Mr. Kinkaid
knew about the coal land was
known to the public generally
known for three or four years
previous to Mr. Kinkaid's pur
chase. The Congress had no
inside informationand there was
no inside to be had about the
coal lands.
Mr. Chapman draws freely
upon his imagination tor political
purposes. These Alaska coal
claims had been upon the market
and bought and sold , especially
in the Pacific Coast cities , for
several years previous to the
time when Mr. Kinkpid made his
purchase. Articles frequently
appeared in the newspapers about

the coal finds in Alaska , and gov
ernment publications giving full
account of coal discoveries in
Alaska were upon demand to any
citizen as far back as 1904. The
same opportunity was open to
everybody else that was open to
Mr. Kiukaid to purchase and
such opportunies were numerous
ly improved before Mr. Kinkaid
made his purchase. Equal op-
pertunities , as we are informed ,
exist today to invest in Alaska
coil lands as when Mr , Kinkaid
made his investment.
True as Mr Chapman states , it
is a fact that Mr. Kinkaid holds
stock in a coal company , but the
stock represents the identical
quarter-section which Mr. Kin
kaid purchased which he placed
in a group , because he had learn
ed by , the experience of others
that a quarter-section of coal
land in Alaska , held and deveelop-
cd singly , would not be worth
what it would cost , and would be a
losing proposition. We did not
refer to the grouping in cur for
mer article because we assumed
that feature of the case would
be remembered. It was published
in the first instance in the dailv
oapers last winter , in the quota
tions made of the testimony of
Glavis and the interview of
Brandeis. Mr. Kinkaid per
sonally sent out copies of the
testimony of Glavis and the in
terview of Brandeis for publica
tions to weekly papers in his
district , and it was published in
the Ritt'UBUCAN at the time.

The fact that the claim of Mr.
Kinkaid was included in a group ,
authorized by the Act of May 28 ,
1SOS , was expressly pointed out
by Glavis in his testimony , and
Brandeis in his interview , in
favor of the validity of the holding
ingby Air. Kinkaid. Because it
had been found not to be feasible
from a Gnancial standpoint to
acquire title or hold and operate
one coal claim in Alaska seper-
ately the act in question was
passed under the Roosevelt ad
ministration to authoriae the de
velopment and holding and oper
ation upon the cooperative plan
by the original eutryman or their
assignees. To prevent monopoly
of these coal lands , , the area
which may be grouped or owned
by one company is limited to
four sections , for which reason
the act is popularly known as the
Anti-Coal Trust Law.
We could go into further de
tail if it would interest our read
ers , but we think it would not.
No government official or special
agent or other peison qualified to
judge of the case has ever even i
intimated that there was anything -
thing wrong Involved with the
transaction with which Mr. Kin
kaid is connected. On the other
hand , Glavis and Brandeis , the
best qualified of all persons to
judge , positively state there was
nothing \ vrougin in the trans
action. Mr. Chapman thiuks a
Congressman should be like
Caesar's wife , above suspicion ,
but no public official has ever es
caped the suspicion of his ma
licious politicaJ enemies or com
