BRYAN'S DOUBLE ROLE
There is one feature in the career of
vounf Mr. Bryan that bus not received
sufficient attention. This is his appear
ance in the celebrated character of "Dr.
Jekyll an' Mr. Hyde." His conception
if the part is different from that of both
Itichard Mansfield and Daniel Baudman
l.ut it is more interesting because theirs
is only an affair of the stage, while his is
adapted to practical life.
Mr. Bryan's first appearance in the
character of Dr. "Jekyll" was at the
Congregational chuich at Weeping Wa
ter some months since. On that occasion
.he is said to have filled the pulpit quite
acceptably, offeriug the prayer, reading
the hymn, preaching the sermon and
pronouncing the benediction. He gave
another rendering of the same deyout
character at Lincoln, when he introduc
ed a resolution at the bar meeting for
bidding the use of wine at a coming
banquet Incidentally it may be re
marked that the banquet never came.
"Dr. JekyllV resolution killed it. But
. the finest bit of acting which he has done
in this part of the character was seen
when he delivered a red-hot prohibition
speech in the chapel of the state peniten
tiary. In that scene he is said to have
fairly outdone anything recorded of
But the achievements of the versatile
actor in the part of "Dr. Jekyll" fade
into nothingness compared with his
present success in the other half of the
dual role As "Mr. Hyde" he fairly out
does himself. He is now engaged in
this part of the performnnce. His as
sumption of the character of a red-rot,
high license, anti-prohibitionist is so life
like as to be startling. In this character
he is now appearing at various points in
the First district. In his speeech at
Omaha and elsewhere he came out Hat
footed against prohibition. He fre
quents the saloons with the 'boys' and is
hail fellow well met' with the heelers in
the bloody Third ward of Omaha, at
which the rural prohibitionists stand
aghast. In this scene the transformation
is complete. There is absolutely nothing
in the bearing of the October candidate
to suggest the saintly young man who
filled the Weeping Water pulpit in tiie
joyous springtime. It is said that when
Mr. Bryan recovers from 'that tired feel
ing,' as he will a few months aftsr 'the
men who work ia shops' are through
with him, he will take the stage and
challenge both Mansfield and Baudnitin
V) a joint production of "Dr. Jekyll and
Mr. Ilvdc." And in that conttst it is
safe to say that he will win.

No wonder the .Journal prints the
Dorsey-Quay fake. It's Sherman's native
mire; it makes him feel at home. The
bigger the lie, the more delighted the
old man is to get a chance to print it.
A; k neddler of cheap fakes the World-
llf-rild is an easv winner. It begun with
the discovery of Tascott and winds up a
fake campaign with a silly telogram pur
porting to have been scut from Dorsey
to Quay in Pennsylvania.
Notwithstanding the positive denial
of Mr. Dorsey in reference to the bogus
telegram, the Journal keeps right on ly
ing as is its custom. "8neak and coward,''
terms so flippantly used by old man Sher
man, do not in the least express his own
mendacity and yennl demagoguery.
Tins county is very close, on a square
political issue; and with four tickets in
the field; to insure republican success we
must work zealously every day from now
on for the success of the republican
ticker. L-t every man be up and doing.
The outlook U flattering.but the enemy ia
Tin.; state of Iowa alone wastes half a
million dollars worth of flax straw evtiy
year. Minnesota, the Dakofas mid Ne
braska lose nearly as much. Now, thanks
to Major McKiDley's little bill, linen
mills are going in at Minneapolis and at
Sioux Falls immediately, and prepara
tion are making for starting the industry
at oth'.r points. The tariff ought to add
65,000,000 to the receipts of the farmers
of these five states every year as soon as
the linen mills are in full operation.
Will not the tariff be worth all it costs
even if it is a "tax?" Ex.
The windy Bryan has made several
speeches in this district, and not in a
single speech has he once mentioned a
meritorious measure, advocated and pas
sed by the lower house of congress which
has had a democratic majority for eight
years. And in all that time not a bill
was'passed that he could show' to the
neople, was in their interests and for the
public good. Think of such a record,
as placed against the silver bill, the anti
trust bill, the bill against cotton seed oil
lard, the pension, bill, the tariff bill, and
a score of other beneficient measures pas
sed by the last republican house, and by
the action of the senate engrafted into
the laws of the land. Mr. Bryan, you
are very br.ezy but your entire effort has
been to tear down and find fault; a fool
could do the same thing, it requires no
genius, no ability and no patriotism to
cry out and find fault with the govern
ment. The frothy Mr. Bryan did not refer to
the vetoe of pension legislation by a
democratic president, and compare that
act, with the act of republican origin,
giving $60,000,000 a year to the survi
vors of the war for the Union. He did
not refer to the anti-trust legislation
passed by a republican tongress, or the
organized attempt to defeat it made by
democratic members. In his 'rich are
growing richer' chaff, he did not refer
once to the standard oil monopoly, the
free trade child of democracy that has
flourished ard grown rich a3 no other
organization ever did before. The a
mount of important matters which Mr.
Bryan forgets to mention or studiously
avoids far outweighs his cheap tirade
upon a protective tariff. The average
free trade orator tights the McKinley bill
instead of fighting a tariff, for the
reason that clean cut free trade is unpop
ular, and the war must be made under a
diso-uise. That is the the only reason
why the McKinley bill receives the on
slaughts of the party.

made of the property. Blanks are dis

the "progressive tax scale.

pays taxes enly on one half of it; B, w ho

taxes on eight-tenths of it; while C, who

THE WORLD -HERALD FAKE.
As the Journal surmised, Congressman
Dorsey having been two or three hundred
miles from Omaha, where the
World-Herald is never heard of, to say
nothing of being never seen, was not
aware of the forged telegram that it has
been parading at the head of its columns
for several days. Oa returning from
Northwest Nebraska yesterday somebody
called his attention to it and he sent the
following dispatch to the Journal:
Fkbmoxt, Nun., Oct. 20. C. H. Gore,
Lincoln, Neb. Upturned at noon from
t!ie extreme western part of trie st:.te. I
brand as infamously and maliciously
the t degram to Senator Quay published
in the VY'orld Herild. I defy Mr. Hitch
cock to prove that I ever sent such u tel
I'vrtim to anyone.
Geo. W. E. Dohs:-.y.
Mr. Dorsey's characterization of this
thiijg as "infamously and maliciously
false," is terse and decisive. The trick
i aa old democratic dodge. It is "smart"
in the estimate of the managers of thv.t
party to commit a forgery of the "Morey "
sort. In this cis?, as the victim was out.
of reach of communication, on the fron tier
of the state, the World-Herald could
rant and rear and "defy him to deny" it
for almost a week before he c.uld hear
We commend this sort of political
warfare to the consideration of the de
cent people of the state.
Tiik logic of the World -Herald is this:
The manager of the Western Union at
Fremont emphatically denies that the
purported dispatch to Quay from Dorsey
was ever sent from that city. Tlr.s
would effectually sq ielcli the base false
hood, but the W-1I says the manager
don't say" that Dorsey did not send a
message to Quay of some kind, and
therefore unless he shows Hitchcock just
what he did send the W-II will stick to
its falsehood. Trying to blackmail a
man to get a. knowledge of his private
business is no more creditable than trying
to blackmail for blood money; the prin
ple the same. Aud every day that the
World-Herald publishes the forged
message it stands a convicted black
mailer by its own logic and by the affida
vit of the manager of the Western Union
Telegraph at Fremont.
The Journal advocates the election of
W. J. Bryan of the law firm of Talbot &
Bryan, to congress, knowing them if it
knows anything to be the paid attorneys
of the Missouri Pacific, and in the same
issue charges Conuell with being in the
interest of the B. & M. when the court
records of Omaha shows that he In s had
more litigation against the B. & M. than
any other attorney in Omaha, and never
represented any railway in Nebraska in
any capacity. What's the use of talking
such rot, the people are not fools? The
railroad racket that you have howled
about so often has become second nature
to you Mr. Shermau. but a g'ance at the
personnel of your candidates this fall,
would indicate that you had better
study up some other issue.
Beutie Hitchcock is mad. The tariff
ij raised on eye glasses, patent leather
shoes, plug hats and doeskin breeches.
Wonder why congrts? could not have
placed a small tax on the dude? A very

ONE OF THE PROFOUND MYSTERIES
OF THE SOUTH SEAS.

Tlie Caroline islands, which are now
recojrnized as belonpfinj; to Spain, though
the Germans tried to nnnex them a few
years ago, form one of the largest itrchi-pt-lagos
of the Pac ific, covering :i sea area
cf more than'J.OoO miles, and comprising
over 500 separate fragments of land.
Some of these- ish ts are more rocks,
miuiy are uninhctbited and a few are
very populous. Excepting Ihoso ;it the
eastern end of the chain, and the- largo
island of Yap at the western ond, they
have boon rarely, some of them nover,
visited by white men, unless in tho dubi
ous form of "beach comb rs."
Kusaio, sometimes cilled Strong isl
and, is about fifty miles in ciirvtiafor
ence, is of basaltic formation, has a
largo extent of high ground, and boasts
of two excellent harbors. The people
are reputedly industrious and peaccablo
for South Sea islanders and they have
a lung of their own. They belong, to
all appearance, to the Polynesian race,
but travelers have declared that they
teem capable of a higher civilization
than the average Polynesian. It is re
markable that the chiefs communicate
by signs and speech not understood by
the common people.
LITTLE EASTER ISLAND.
If we traverse some few thousand
miles of ocean to the very eastern out
skirts of Polynesia we shall find the lit
tle island called Easter island, which is
barely ten miles long by four miles
broad, which has no trees, no running
water, and very little about it to attract
settlers. It is of volcanic origin, and
one of the extinct craters is over 1,000
Yet this i'hj-sically uninteresting isl
and, peopled by Polynesians of the fair
type, such as are found in the Society
islands, is the greatest mystery of the Pa
cific. It is covered with remains of some
prehistoric people of whom every record
but that preserved in stone seems to have
At the southwest end of this little isl
and there are to be found the ruins of
nearly a hundred stono houses, built iu
regular lines and facing the sea. The
walls of these houses are five feet thick
and over five feet high, built of layers of
flat stones and lined inside with flat
slabs. Internally the houses measure
about forty feet long by thirteen feet
wide, and they are roofed over with slabs
overlapping like tiles. Tho inside walls
are painted in threes colors red, black
and whitJ with figures of birds and
mystic beasts aud faces and geometrical
figures. Iu . one of these houses was
found a curious stone statue eight feet
high and weighing about four tons,
which is now in the British museum.
The sea cliffs near this ancient settle
ment are carved into grotesque shapes
not unlike the paintings on the walla, and
the coast is marked with hundreds of
these strange sculptures.
Again, on each headland of the island
there is an enormous stone platform,
built of hewn blocks of great size, fitted
together without cement. They are built
on sloping ground, presenting on the sea
ward side a wall face twenty or thirty
feet high and two or three hundred feet
long, and on the landward side a wall
of about three feet in height rising from
a level terrace.
EVIDENCES OF WORSHIP.
These platforms have evidently had to
do with the religious practices of the
early settlers, whoever they were; for
upon all of them are large stone pedes
tals which have supported images, and
on some of them broken images are still
to be seen. On one platform fifteen
images were found, in size ranging from
three to thirty-five feet in height. They
are of human shape, representing the
upper part of the body only, with, arms
and hands close to the sides. The heads
are cut flat to allow of crowns being
placed on them, which crowns seem to
have been made, not of the same mate
rial as the statues, but of red tufa.
This has been traced to an extinct crater
within a few miles of the houses, aud on
the brink of this crater a large number
of crowns were found, finished and
ready for removal before some strange
fate "depeopled the island of these an
The images themselves are made of
gray lava, which is only found at quite
another crater at the other end of the
island. At this crater, called Otouli,
there are several finished and partly
finished images, just as they were left
by the workmen. It is remarkable that
tho present natives have small wooden
images carved t'lit of a hard, dark wood,
but these i:nages are hideous and differ
