As the date of the Sixth congres
sional convention draws near the
Hontimont in favor of Judge Kin-
kaid'ri nominalion grows Hliotigor
with Iho people. The Judge's
popularity with the masses in his
own judicial district has never
failed to manifesl itself at the polls.
When a candidate for judge four
years ago ho was elected by a ma-
jorily of 1 MO votes when the re
mainder of the republican ticket
was defeated Ho has always been
a conservative in politics yet trim
lo the principles and this faol with
his fikirand unbiased rulings on thit
benchhaHslrengthened his popular
ity with the manses. His only rival ,
for the nominalion for congress ,
in the republican ranks up to date
is lawyer Bfomiin of Kearney. It
is lobe hoped that Mr. Bcoman will
not insist upon his candidacy at
this time as he ia not generally
known , that Judge Kinkaid may bo
nominated by acclamalion.
Tlio question as lo whether iho
legislature has authority lo appro
priate moBoy for a governor's house
rent , dooH not enlor into Iho ques-
lieu of Iho recent investigation of
the soualo commitloo. Gov.Crounse ,
a republican governor , said iho log-
islaliiro had no authority to mike
any Huoh appropriation , and volood
tlio bill providing for his house rent.
As governor Holcomb did not veto
the bill providing for his housoront ,
lit us concede that ihe governor
had a legitimate right lo use the
entire amount appropriated by the
legislature. Bui may we not fur
llier ask for what purpose the "house
rent fund" can bo legitimately need
by the govirnor ? In all branches
of state , county and township gov >
eminent , the law provides for general
oral and specific tax levies. An
I'Slimato is undo by the proper
authorities of each fund noooHsaiy ,
and the levy needed lo raise that
amount is made When collected ,
Iho disbursing otliccr bos no legitimate
mate right lo use cither of those
funds for any other purpose than
that for which they wore created
In case of a surplus in any lund
the body that created the fund has
authority to transfer the surplus
after all obligations are mot , to any
other fund that may need il. But
no members of that body , or the
board creating il , has a right to
appropriate a penny of lhat money
lo their own private uso. Gov.
Holcomb had a right to use the
entire amount appropriated for
house rout for that specific purpose ,
but not a dollar of it for personal ,
or for any other purpose. If the
$30 ho paid the landlord nnd iho
amount paid for repairing and water
rout consumed the amount monthly
retained by the governor , ho is
entitled to it , but if ho took part of
it to pay for furniture or campaign
expenses , ho overstepped the limit.
Tbo only way Governor Holoomb
can place himself fairly before the
people , and remove tbo suspicion
now resting against ilia "houns
ront" niDlltir , is to give the public
an itoinm > d statement , accompanied
by receipt * , showing just where
oven * dollar of tbo money ho drew
from the state treasurer wan ap
plied. Tbe plea by some that bo
bad a right to use the whole ol the
appropriation for any purpose bo
* nw fit , is wholly without reason

From tbo above statement are wo
to infer that the Beacon editor has
boon admitted to the counsels of the
republican state and county central
committees or has ho astand < in with
Walt Moise , the chief mogul ol the
saloons of tbo state ? Such rot may
have weight with some people but
not with the moro intelligent class.
The only object wo can see in mak.
ing a statement of that character is
for its political effect. It is for this
reason that wo desire to give tbo
statement a little space at this time
that tbo public may judge whether
be republican or populist leaders
are in the saloon business. There
s an bffoit an every ono knows at
ho present time to uoouro license
or two saloons in Broken Boiv. As
iio question of license was submitted
o fho voters of the city in last
spring's election and voted down ,
ho Beacon evidently is attempting
o fool tbo public into tbo belief
bit the republican parly is back of
ho move for saloons , and thus keep
, ho real facts from the public. The
salooiiB of the state are under the
control of Walt Moiso of Omahawho
was ono of Gov. Holcomb's staff and
nado colonel by him , and has been
reappointed by Gov. Poyntor , the
) rohibitionist ( ? ) to the same posi
tion. uCol. Moiso Man a democrat
intil fusion became popular , when
10 became a demo-pop. If wo have
) eon rorreollj informed all the
saloons that have been run in Ouster
jounty with ono or two exceptions
lavu boon owned and operated by
Jol. Moise and his hired help. The
urcd help have beenwith but few exceptions
ceptions democrats or populists. It
wat because of the local prejudice
to Moiso together with the ami-
siloou element that gave Broken
? ow itn great republican victory last
spring and vote.d out saloon license.
As throe of tbo procont council and
the mayor are republicans the
Uoaoon seeks to fortify itself , in
case license should bo granted so as
to successfully charge that the re
publican , state pud county central
committee had so ordered. But in

mud-slinging to refer to the secret

Its greal party influence has already

Wise 1'lnn for Uold Democrats.
The expressions among the gold

Their nominee in 1800 polled com
paratively few voles , and as the
silver folly will bo mixed up with
several other lunacies in the demo-
oralio platform next year , it can
hardly arouse as much interesl as it
