Yestcaday Congressman Kinkaid
made the announcement that if
elected he would oppose the re
election of Speaker Cannon. This
spirit of repentance comes very
late and is practically an admission
of weakness in Kinkaid. If Cannon
was bad why didn't Kinkaid say so
long ago , before people discovered
it and demanded of him what he
would do ? Why didn't Kinkaid
take the initiative and denounce
Cannon before he saw the hand
writing on the wall ? Like Ingalls ,
the Kansas senator , Kinkaid will
shift to hold his job , but Ingalls
waited too long.
Last spring the postofflce at Har
mony was established , which is be
tween Valentine and Britt on the
Eofc-ebud route. A petition circulated
by residents applied to have the
Eosebud mail go by way of Har
mony and the department ac
quiesced , granting their petition
i hen , to please a few friends , Cong.
Kinkaid was appealed to , to have
the route continued the old way and
now there is a ; new route establish
ed , entailing the additional expense
of a special daily carrier to
Harmony , Feven miles from Valen
tine , at § 480 per year and the
Eosebud mail daily drives past
Harmony on another road which is
no nearer by section line than via
Harmony. Is this economy in gov
ernment affairs ? Vote for W. H.
Westover for congress.

E\ery day there are new develop

The hj'jul of the powder trust , under
indictment , has bevn bounced t'rtnn

has just begini. During the week tue
Chicago Journal and other papers have
shown that Acting Chairman Sage : , of
the Republican national committee ,

brought to drive tiiat trust out of .Mis

shown that the Republicans in New
York refused to nominate ( jeorII. ; .
Sheldon as lieutenant governor of that
state because hi * trust onuo. tions
were so notorious that til1 jveo.le
would not stand for hjin , and yet he is
tiie treasurer of the Ilepublii-in na
tional committee. In Chicago , the as
sistant treasurer of the IlepuHIean
committee is a membi r of the bo-ird
of review. As such he pass-.1.- ; upon
tax assessments. A i'ew week- ; ago
he scandalized ti ! country 03" sending
letters to corporations , upon w ! - . > ' : K-

asking them to contribute to 'lie lie-

The Seattle Times , after showing that
rio trust magnates control the Repub
lican party , adds another dark chapter
to trust domination of that p.irty in
the following questions prepared by
a citizen of Seattle :
"Was not Frank P . Kellogg , the at
torney -\vhom President Roosevelt ap
pointed to tight the Standard Oil com
pany , the general counsel of the Oliver
Mining company of Minnesota for a
period of ten years ? Hut the Oliver
Mining company of Minnes'jta is only
another name for .Standard Oil.
"Is not Kellogg even now the gen
eral counsel for tlic United States
Steel company of Minnesota V Is he
not paid a very large salary by that
corporation , and been so paid for many
years ? And yet the United States
Steel company of Minnesota is abso
lutely owned by the Standard Oil :
"When the Merritt Bros. , of Duluth ,
were obliged to sue John I ) . Rockefel
ler to obtain their rights in a mining
deal located on the Mesaba range in
Minnesota was not Frank B. Kellogg
the attorney for the oil king ? Not
only that , but did not Kellogg carry
the case to the circuit court of appeals
and secure the reversal of judgment
for aboiit one million dollars ?
"Do oot the Rockefellers and their
associates control the ( Jreat Western
Railroad company , running from Chicago
cage to St. Paul and Kansas City ?
But is not Kellogg the attorney for
that road ?
"Assuming that these questions
must be answered in the affirmative ,
how can the department of justice em
ploy Mr. Kellogg to prosecute tlie
Standard Oil company in behalf of tlie
people and still alow him to act for
the Standard Oil company in the cases
"Is not Kellogg also the trusted ad
viser of Judge Taft ? If so. what will
Judge Taft likely do. if lie should suc
ceed to the presidency , so far as en
forcing the law against Standard Oil ? "
The truth is and everybody knows
it that the Standard Oil trust owes
its power and wealth to favoring legis
lation and immunity granted by the
Republican party , and that the trusts
for a generation have "put up" for the
Republican campaign fund. They will
Jo so again this year , and they are
too smart to put their money in a con
cern without getting value received.
Taft does not promise to take the
tariff 'XT of trust controlled articles or
to put the officers of trusts in jail.
Why ? The trust magnates own the
iuuer circle that , under Aldrich and
Cannon , controls legislation , and when
they pay for legislation and for free
dom from prosecution they know they
get what they pay for.
New York Evening Tost. It hns
been shown that the Democratic com
mittee got not a cent and that Mr.
Roosevelt gave currency to a false
charge. He admitted that ITaiTiman
raised 210.000 for the Republican
campaign fund in 1904. Then they
