years ill' that capacity and was a
few days ago nominated by acclamation -
clamation for a fourth term. lIe
ranks high in the lower house of
congress , being one of the most
influential members of that body.
IIcis a warm friend of Speaker
Cannon who gives him frequent
rccognition. He is a member of
thc committee on appropriations ,
one of the best committees of thc
1\'lr. Burkett occupies the distinguished -
tinguished and unique position of
being a candidate for two offices
at one timc. Already nominated
for another term in i thc lower
house he is also being vigorously
pushed for United States senator ,
in which he is carrying everything -
thing before him.
In Dcccmber last year the Tri-
bune brought him out for this
p.sition , being the first newspaper -
per to urge his promotion to the
higher place Since that day his
candidacy has been espoused by
nu fewer than one-hundred-fifty
republican new pup . rs and hosts
of republicans in all parts of thc
statc. There has been a singular
unanimity of scntiment in favor
'l he state central committee at
a meeting held in January declared -
clared in favor of thc nomination
of a , e tatarial candidate by the
state convention and recommen-
ded that the matter be referred
to the county conventions for ac-
Lon. Thus far about fifteen
counties have held conventions
and nearly all have declared in
favor of the nominating plan.
The numbcr of delegates that
have been instructed in the matt -
t r is 3H , or nearly one-lhird the
entire convention , and 300 of
the s . are for \1r. Burkctt. It is
ed tent that the convention will
ecide : by an ovcr-whell1.ing" majority -
jority to make a nomination and
the nominee wilt be : Mr. Burkett.
There was ; ! : , never a more populo r
candidate nor political progoram.
Mr. Burkett is an indefatigable
worker , is a clean and capable
man. He is a campaigner of exceptional -
c'otional ability. Two years
ag-u he made his first political
speech in Fremont . and the ra'.ly
addressed hy him was a memor-
able occasion. lIe was fresh
from a two months stumping tour
ill Maine and was loaded to the
him with republican thunder. He
look his audience by storm and
that spccch has been the talk of
the town ever since. It resulted
in a call for him to deliver an ad-
dress to the high school graduating -
ing class the following June. On
this occasion he demonstrated
that he could speak equally wen
on other ! than political topics.

a senatorial seat is conceded by
