Candidates for Congress
North Platte Tflbune: The republican
papers of this Judicial district are a unit in
their endorsement of Judge Grimes as the
congressional nominee and the rank and
file of the psrty are barking up the papers.
Butte Gaiette: Th South Platte coun
try appears to be prolific In csndidates for
congress, but none come anywhere having
the lead that Hon. M. P. Klnkald has. He
is the logical candidate. Is entitled to the
nomination and will get It.
! North Nebraska Eagle: The Eagle has

I honors In this district. The republicans

a success in the business world. - meet those presented by George A. Brook.
O'Neill Frontier: W. TV. Young of Ptan
ton Is brought out as one of Nebraska's
congressional candidates for a republican
nomination. While It is out of the Fron
tier's district there Is no harm In saying
that with a six-horse team of republicans
from Nebraska like Young in the house
there would be something doing.
O'Neill Frontier: Rusbville presents
Hon. W. TV. Wood to the consideration of
the Plxth district republicans. Sidney
speaks favorably of Hon. II. M. Orlmes for
1 the same. It'a a long time since men were
around hunting for republican nominations
In the Sixth like they are now.
Ord Qulx: Mr. Beeman of Kearney Is
In the city this morning. He Is one of the
prominent candidates for congressional
honors In the Sixth district. As he will
have the undivided support of Buffalo
county he will no doubt go into the con
vention with a good deal of strength.
Albion News: H. C. Vail, Boone county's
candidate for congress, Is not Indulging In
any pyrotechnics to keep himself before the
people. He Is not trying to convey the Idea
that he Is the only man In the district compe
tent to represent It In congress. He stands

ALLEGE IMPROPER INFLUENCE
Dasgkttrs and Grandchild of 9. p.
Winch Bring: Salt to He
The two daughters and a grandchild of
Beth F. Winch, who died at the age of 77
In St. Bernard's Hospital for Insane, Coun
cil Bluffs, on February 11, 1899, have filed
In district court a petition asking to bava
annulled the transactions of Winch's
widow, who is now Mrs. John J. Steen, in
the Winch estate. The specific request Is
to have declared void the deeds she gave
to purchasers, and It Is the plaintiff's alle
gation that she first gained title to the
property by unduly influencing Winch In
The petitioners are the daughters, Elvira
Aldrlch and Emma 8. Oatman of Massa
chusetts, and Irene F. Sweet, a minor heir
of she who was Helena Winch. The $50,000
property Involved la said to Include the old
home property at $204 North Twenty-fourth,
the house next to it, now occupied by the
widow and her present husband, John J.
Steen, who la about 70 years old; twenty
city lota in north Omaha, two in South
Omaha, a flve-arrs tract near Miller park,
160 acres In Minnesota sixty miles from St.
Paul, two lots Id Chicago, one on Washing
ton boulevard, and six lota In Council
The allegations In the petition are in the
broadest language possible. In substance It
la charged that she who was then Mrs.
Miranda J. Mitchell went to the home of
Mr. Winch to Msv, 1K8. presenting her
self as a dressmaker; that ahe was ex
tremely prepossessing and won the confi
dence and demonstrative affection of Mr.
Winch; that In April, 1892. his wife Surah
had divorce proceedings well under way In
district court and was suing for alimony;
that Mra. Mitchell persuaded Winch 00
April 13 to transfer bia property to her by
couvlnclng him that It his wife won her
suit she and the "legal thieve" would get
practically all that was In bis name; that
Wausa Eagle-Herald: Jule Jenal of
Hartlngton will be a candidate for con
gress from this district, providing the con
gressional convention tenders him the nomi

dates so far for these honors, the othr
two being George Brooks of Baillle Mills
and H. Clay Balrd of Santee. Any one of
these three gentlemen would honor the
Central City Nonpareil: Dr. Homer A.
Hanson of Columbus was In the city Tues
day looking the field over with a view to
ascertaining his standing among Merrick
county republicans as a congressional can
didate. In meeting Dr. Hanaon one la fa
vorably impressed with his pleasing per
sonality, bia energy and evident ability.
He Is perhaps the youngest aspirant for
congressional honors In the state, being less
than SO, but, although a young man, has
Columbus Times: While new candidates
for the nomination for congressman for this
district are being announced every week it
la Impossible to name a man that more
completely combines all the prerequisites
for that position than our own candidate
from Platte, Dr. Homer A. Hanson. And
not a single candidate thus far suggested
will go Into the convention with the same
flattering number of votes. While It Is a
laudable ambition to aspire to the leader
ship of this congressional district In this
fall's campaign, we must have a candidate
that can poll the solid vote of the party
on the 11th day of November.
Webster County Argus: Prominent
among those who are making a strong fight
to secure the nomination for congreBsmsn
from the Fifth district on the republican
ticket la Elliott Lowe, representative from
Harlan county. Mr. Lowe s work In the
last legislature was eapeclally character
ised by bis strong committee work and he
mada a good record for himself. He Is
a man who has been engsged in business
pursuits for many years among the people
of this district, composed largely of agri
culturists, and his years of experience have
evidenced to him the needs of the district
and qualified him In a large measure to fill
the responsible position of congressman
with ability and satisfaction to his people.
Niobrara Pioneer: George A. Brooks has
formally announced his candidacy for the
republican nomination for congressman.
Should Mr. Brooks receive the nomination
It would be a recognition not only of the
business world, but of the people with
whom he comes In dally contact. His hss
been a life of energy, full of that business
enterprise and push that make the wheels
.turn, yet softened with a benevolence that
has bridged over many a struggling neigh
bor or friend. And this has, It is strange
to relate, been even passed along to some
struggling foe If worthy as a man and citi
xen. These attentions make the most fa
miliar and striking local friendship that
any citizen could wish to possets. A con
gressman from the west must needs be a
hustler, much more so when this great
district Is considered. There Is not a candi
date mentioned for this honor whose
Tilden Citisen: State Senator TV. TV.
Young of Stanton la an avowed candidate
for the congress In this district snd the
Citisen takes pleasure la making the an
nouncement to its readers. There may be
as good men available for the position, but
certainly none better qualified. During the
campaign of 1900, Mr. Young made the
only political speech In TUden thst at
tracted any attention and thia speech left
with our community a very favorable Im
pression of him as an orator. His term
in the state senate, to which he was
elected lsst fall, stamped him as an In
defatigable worker and the bills he Intro
duced and the speeches he made are con
vincing proofs of his being In touch with
the "common people" of the state. He Is
a pronounced republican, highly honored In
his own county (a democratic county, which
gave him a good majority In 1900), an able
lawyer of twenty-two years practice, a
manly man capable of doing his own think
ing, and with moral stsmina enough to ex
press his honest convictions at all times,
In all places and upon all political Issues.
With him as the congressional candidate,
the Third district republicans need never
fear the humiliation of making a defensive
campaign nor of being represented at
Washington by a nonentity.
Osmond Republican: Senator W. TV.
Young of Stenton Is a candidate for the re
publican nomination for congress in this
district. Mr. Young is one of the most rep
resentative and able men of the sta:e, whn,
by hla Industry and close attention to busi
ness in farming as well ns In law, has ac
cumulated considerable of the worlds

integrity. He has been grand chancellor of

ever looking closely after the Interests of
his district and that of the state. As a
speaker and debater he had no superior In
the senate and In whatever gland he took to
be right he stood firmly to the end without
flinching, showing the courage of his con

qualified to represent It In the halls of con
