The .HoinostoiultM 8 Jlenofnctor , Able
nnd Kllident Worker.
The Sixth Congressional District
of Nebraska has been represented
for a good many years by Moses P.
Kinkald , who is really the only live
congressman this district has ever
had , who has perhaps been more tal"
ed about than any other western
congressman by reason of the work
ho accomplished In passing the Kln
kald Act which has done more than
anything else to open up what has
been known as the "Sandhill" re- ,
glen of Nebraska , by the terms of
which act , this vast region Is being
rapidly settled up and converted
from an almost useless waste Into
w * A , i r * a prosperous stock and agriculture
j Every "Kinkalder"no matter what
his politics Is a supporter of "Uncle
Moses , " and will vote for him on
next Tuesday , but the opposition
have been busy spreading the re
port that Mr. Kinkaid is not pro
gressive and thnt ho has been con
nected with some questionable trans
action In Alaska public lands.
Both of these charges are abso
lutely false and they are made for
polltjcal purposes only. The fact
that Mr. Klnkald had been or was
interested in Alaska lands would nev
cr have been questioned had not
Mr. Glavls , theman who gave the
testimony , which led to the Invest
igation of the acts of Secretary Bal-
linger , alluded in his testimony , to
| some sort of claim in which Mr.
Kinkald with others had an Interest.
This was enough for the enemies of
Mr. Kinkaid to hear. They at once
published the news in big headlines
and branded the Nebraska Congress
man as a grafter all over the coun
try and this has been their only
stock In trade throughout the cam
paign and is enlarged upon by his
opponent at every meeting where he
speaks. The facts are that Mr. Kln
kald simply purchased a coal claim
on which final proof had been made
by the locator and patent had not
been Issued ; just the same as many
I citizens of this county have pur-
1 chased lands on which final proof
1 has been made by the homesteader
mid final certificate issued , but pat-
! ET , * \ . ent not issued.
Mr. Taylor nor his managers does
not state to his hearers , that in
that same testimony , Mr. Glavis took
partlcultr pains to tell the committo
that the connection Mr. Kinkaid had
with the Alaska claim was entirely
legitimate and not at all improper
or compromising. Mr. Glavls was a
victim of the administration of Secretary -
rotary Dalllnger , andlet no oppor-
"t tunity pass to show up anything Improper -
" . proper In the administration , and his
emphatic declaration that Mr. Kln-
' , " , kaid had no Improper or Illegitimate
. ' " , a connection with the matter referred
C r * ' to , ought to satlfy the most skeptlca
that our congressman is in no way
mixed up In any graft in that
As to whether Congressman Ktn-
kald is "progressive" or not , the
question does not admit of any dis
cussion. The .record shows for It
self. If any doubt remains , we call
your attention to the November is
sue of Everybody's Magazine enti
tled "Choose Your Congressman. "
Everybody's can not bo accused of
standing in with "stand-patters , "

rather than privilege , and created

If his past record Is endorsed by
the people of this district by a re-
election , where will Mr. Klnkald bo
found during the next two years ?
Everybody knows thnt he will bo
with the men who have stood by the
people In the piist. The next con
gress will contain a full progressive
delegation from Wisconsin and Iowa
with added progressives from every
weatern state as well us many from
many of the eastern and middle
states. It Is to those progressive
republicans and not to democrats
that the people will have to look
for a complete victory In the strug
gle that Is now on , and If Nebraska
wiintn to be counted on the side of
progress she must elect every con
gressional candidate who will get
Into the harness and work with La-
Pollette , Cummins , Brlstow , Murdoc
Morris and their associates. This
Moses P. Klnkald has been doing ,
and will continue to do If continued
at the post which he has In the past
ao ably filled.
To the Voters of Co trr County lle-
gardlehs of Former Party
As chairman of one of the great
party organizations of the county 1
think I may bo pardoned for expres
sing my views of the political situ
ation as It Is presented at this time
The present campaign Is about
over and the people of the state will
soon return a verdict. In many re
spects the campaign just closing has
been remarkable. It has been par
ticularly free from partisan abuse ,
emlnatlng from the opposing party ,
and abundantly provided with inter-
party criticism and vituperation grow
Ing out of an expressed desire on' the
part of the critic to purify his own
party and present a candidate
worthy of the party's support
Thus'Howard Is after Hitchcock ;
Whcadon after Burkett ; Bryan and
Metcalf as democrats and Manuel
and .Wolf as populists after Dahl-
man and many republicans are sup
porting Dahlmaji and many demo
crats are supporting Aldrich. The
independence of the voter in this
election can hardly bo questioned.
The ruling issue in this campaign ,
nationally is insurgency. In state
matters it is county option. The
voter can find hjs candidate by
either of the above brands. Opin
ions may differ. Democrats to save a
vantage point , may claim that re
publican candidates are not progres
sive or Insurgent ; and republicans ,
to gain a like vantage , may claim
that their candidate is and that the
opposing candidate Is not. And this
same claim is made by party leaders
of'each party within itself as to cer
tain candidates. The voter must
determine for himself.
In this county a speaking cam
paign has not been made. The can
didate has not declared himself in
open meetings on the issues that
make this an Intense camqalgn.Vo
must take his individual statement
or the statement of his party paper
for the things he stands for and
will vote for in the event of his
election. As between the candidates
for United States Senator the posl
tion of each aspirant is clear and
definite. Mr. Hitchcock stands for
democracy represented by such men
as Bailey of Texas , Stone of Missouri
Gore of Oklahoma , Daniels of Vlr
glnla and other leading democrats
In the senate and has the. active ,
Cham ] ) Clark , the democratic leader
of the house of representative. Mr.
Burkett stands with the progressive
loaders of the republican majority
In the senate and has the active-
open , unqualified endorsement and
support of the republican leaders
like President Tuft , Ex-President
Roosevelt , and Senators Cummins ,
Brlstow , Clapp , Beaverage , LaFollott
and others , who are making their
fight against privelcge in all of its
invidious form. An article in
Everybody's Magazine for November
explains the situation exactly as It
Is and should be read before election
In state matters , by whatever
name It may bo called , the Issue Is
plainly defined. I think R. L. Met
calf states It clearly and correctly
when ho says : "The issue is , 'Shall
the people of the state surrender
political power into the keeping of
the liquor trust ; shall they put the
seal of their approval upon the li
quor trusts executed threat to drive
out of office any man who fails to
do their bidding ? "This is what
they did to Governor Shallonberger.
Call It 8 o'clock closing law or conn
ty option if you wish , but tlio ques
tion behind the name you give it is
whether or not any interest , whisky ,
or otherwise , shall bo vested with
the power , under the sanction of the
voters of the state to coerce
'browbeat and bulldog u public
official , whether ho bo gover
nor or roadoverseor , in the honest
and conscionclous discharge of his
duty , to the extent that , in order to
eave his political life , ho can bo
swerved from his duty and compel
led by threats of non-support In a
coming election , to abandon the side
of right and decency and take up
\ \ ith wrong and become an advocate
of that which is degrading. The
nomination of Dahlman was a robuk
to Shalleuborger , administered by
the liquor interests of the state.
The election of Dahlman will be an
approval of the methods and means
used by the liquor trust to drlvo
from office a faithful official who
dared to assert his individual right
an governor when It ran counter to
the expressed demand of the whisky
interests of the state. It tsnt so
much Mr , Dahlman as It is the moth'
ods and means he represents that
makes his candidacy reprehensible at
this time. His nomination was a
rape on popular government and his
election will bo acompllshcd , If It
Is acompllshcd , by combining the
vote of the disreputable in all parties
with the desire for party regularity
among the supporters of Shallcnbor-
ger at the primary election to the
end that men may say : " 1 voted the
ticket straight. "
It is nnamcrican , unpatriotic and
unjust that a special interest , living
on the woes of humanity , may drlvo
down the threat of a great party
an undesirable candidate by pilfer
ing from an opposite party a vote It
can control to accomplish its end
and then have the stamp of approv
al put upon its very act by the party
it has raped.
In tills campaign party lines have
been eliminated on governor. 1
think It Is noticeable , that generally
speaking , the undesirable element of
the republican party has gone demo-
cralc and the desirable element of
the democratic party has flilated
with the republican party. Or to
put It In the language of Governor
Shallenberger. "Democracy and de
cency have joined hands. ' , ' Just
now the fight of the American people
ple Is against privelege. The liquor
interests claim a privelege they are
not entitled to obtain. And the de
feat of the liquor trusts executed
threat , made when the 8 o'clock
closing law was signed , can only be
accomplished by the defeat of its
candidate at the polls next Tuesday.
The unamerican proposition I see
behind this campaign is the granting
to a special interest- the power and
authority to influence the acts of
the public official favorable to such
interest or , failing in this , meet out
to him the punishment of defeat.
This year it is the whisky Interest
that is riding the wave of chastise
ment. Next year It may be some
other Interest. It Is up to the voter
to say whether he will approve such
piracy or by his vote forever put a
stop to it.
The same Interest that gave Shal
lenberger liis chastisement has ex
acted a promise from his victorious
rival to look specially after and
guard the interests of the liquor
trust. Mr. Dahlman announces open
ly that he will veto legislation ad
verse to the trusts Interest If the
legislature shall pass such measures
This brings the question squarely
up to the legislative candidate. The
constitution of the state provides
that bills may be passed over the
veto of the governor and thus be
come a law. It Is accordingly Im
perative that the voter shall know
what the. legislative candidate will
do in the event of a veto. Will he
accept the veto as final and support
it as a party measure or will he vet
to pass the bill over the governor's
veto ? On this proposition may de
pend the accomplishment or the defeat -
feat of the will of the people. Look
well to the legislative ticket. For
the rights of the people must bo
safeguarded by this law-making bed
it we are to maintain the highest
ideals of representative government.
It is the duty of every citizen to
go to the polls and exercise the
right of franchise. When he has
voted as hs | conscience dictates he
has performed hs duty. And upon
the combined vote of this state on
the issues presented depends more
of civil liberty and representative
government than has been present
ed to the average voter In his life
