To Mv INtroiiiril
Upon the advice of many > oors ( , I
littvo become it tmmlldntn for a re-
nomination for Cnngrcmp by the prl *
iimry election to be held Augtmt 1G.
During the prPHent Congress I Imvo
faithfully supported the pollrlon pur-
miod mid It'BHatlon rorntiiincndcd by
llooaovplt , wln'ii President , adopted
and promoted by PrBbldiMit Taft , as
evidenced by the excellent measures
enacted at the recent sosBlon. In re
vising the tariff , I strlvud to have
lumber and barbed wire placed upon
the frf-o llBt and voted on separate
Hchfdulcs for revision downward gen
erally , but after the bill bad been
In the Sennto and In conference , It
bad to bo voted upon as an entirety ,
with the alternative to pass It or de
feat It and leave In operation the
old law. A majority , Including dem
ocrats with republicans , prevented a
greater reduction of the ratri. I fa
vor tlm Increase of the authority of
the tariff board recently authorized
and that In the future revisions bo
made of single schedules , when condl-
tlonH warrant It , rather than that all
echedulea bo revised at the same
time , thus preventing "log rolling" by
protected Interests. I favor the adop
tion of the proposed amendment to
the Constitution of the United States
permitting the taxing of largo in
comes ; also , the election of Senators
by direct vote.
As about three-llfths of the an
nouncements of my competitor con
sists ot an attack upon my record , I
shall give It such brief notice as the
nnturo hereof will permit. The ref
erence incidentally occurring last win
ter In tlm UnlllnKor-Plnchot Investiga
tion to my purchase of a quarter-sec
tion ot coal laud In Alaska , carried "
with It the Information , derived from"
ofllclal source , that the transaction
P. Kinkaid , Congressman Cth Dlst.
\vns legitimate and straightforward ;
but in disregard of this , to advance
liis own candidacy , iny competitor
questions its regularity. It was be
cause only of the fact that Mr. Dal-
linger , as my attorney , had passed on
the tltlo to the property , before ho
was Secretary of the Interior , when
in the practice of law at Seattle , that
the transaction was mentioned at all ,
No government olllcial has pretended
that I did what was wrong or im
proper. Glavis , special agent and at
torney for the government in coal land
matters , in substance , BWOJ-O there
was nothing contained in the
transaction on the part of either
Dalllngor or myself that was
wrong. Brandois , attorney for Pin-
chot , fifthVo have looked into
the case carefully. * * * There is
nothing wrong or improper. * * *
Mr. Kinkaid has nothing to conceal in
this matter as far as I know , " My
purchase "was made of the entrymait
who had nn equitable title which the
nnrmits to bo nsslgncd or deeded ,
for which I paid $2,800,00 , and to se
cure a patent , must yet pay the gov
ernment price of $10.00 per acre , I
have not mnrto a coal land entry. If !
the entry of my grantor was made in
good faith , and the law In other re
spects has been complied with , a pat
ent will be granted ; otherwise not.
Certainly , the government Is secure ,
because Its officials have the exclu
sive determination of these questions.
Jn refutation of the implied accusa
tion by my competitor , that I bavo
evaded voting , "insurged at home and
stood pat in Washington , " I cite a
portion of a testimonial written by
Howard R. Illnshnw , ( Secretary to
Cijgressmnn Illnshaw , as follows :

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 tie put into operation. I
have always been opposed to boss rule
and machine politics. I believe in repre
sentative government , in government by
the people nnd not by corporations. I

Imlievc Unit downward revision has been
fully accomplished ; particularly with
with reference to the woolen , cotton ,
lumber and witc schedules.
I believe a congressman .should have
convictions aud courage enough to vote
them ; that he should not dodge , side
step ( ind vote "present ; " that he should
not insurge at home and stand pat in
Washington , That he should keep his
nntc-clcction promises nud vote against
Mr. Cniinoii for speaker after having
promised the people to do so ; nnd he
should not vole to tax barbed wire at
$15 oo per tou after publicly announcing
that it should be placed to free list.
A congressman is elected by the public
a-id pnid by the public to serve the
public and not to serve htuiself. lie
should be satisfied to render public ser
vice for the public salaty and not seek to
further enrich himself at the expense of
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. Ballingur's assistance in
acquiring a coal claim in Alaska is not
sufficient proof of either regularity or
ethics of the tiansactiou.
Having filed as candidate for the demo
cratic and populist nomination for repre
sentative. I will appreciate the support of
the democrats and popullstf of this district
at the primaries.

SENATOR TAYLOR COMING.
"Flddllngi Bob" to Lecture at Chau
There is something so Inimitable ,
joyous , pathetic , humorous , yet sad
abont 'Bob" Taylor's lectures that U
keeps you op the jump to change from
laughing to crying. Yet you keep busy
and do it , Wo are told by the wise
men tlmn once upon a time the law
yers were most icllglous and that a
part of a legal training was the learn
ing of scriptural truths and the prac
tice of devotional attitudes , if this
bo true then times have changed. But
fortunately the lawyers are not as bad
as they are pictured and among those
who have been true to ancient tradi
tions is Senator Taylor. That does
not mean that Taylor is a back num
ber far from it. lie Is a most com
plete specimen of true Americanism.
Ho comes of fighting stock and , from
a family whose name figures ronsplcu
ously In American history since tjio
Devolution. Hut there are other ele-
jncnts In his make-up broad-minded/
ness , love of fair play and reverence
for American ideals , Rucl ) n. charac
ter could not bo burled under the detail -
tail of ordinary Hfo anil thrice , tlmnigh

held the highest ollice in his state.
It Tins been said that he Is the most
pleasing speaker on the American plat
form today and the statement is true.
Hut the power of his speech lies not
In his command of language or flight
of oratory , not In the turning of beau
tiful phrases but In the man him
