A PARTY that stands for honost

kind of a party that can count upon
the support of all intelligent working-
men. Globe Democrat.
It is an easy thing to elect demo
crats in Alabama. It doesn't even re
quire votes. All it needs is to have
election officials with vivid imagina
tions and elaborate tally sheets. They
can easily guess at the number of votes
to place opposite a democratic name.
When the free coiners talk about
the necessity of restoring silver to the
position that it occupied prior to 1873,
they ignore the fact that the govern
ment has done that very thing by coin
ing fifty times as many silver dollars as
were coined in the whole previous his
tory of the country.
L. T. Genung, the demo-pop nomi
nee for congress in the Iowa district
just east of us, is bright enough to
know better. He may have lots of
fun running for congress over there
this fall, but he will lack a good many
votes of being able to draw the salary
of a national legislator.

choice of voters as follows: McKinley

where Bryan is best known and where
for personal reasons he might gain on
his opponent he actually loses. Mr.
Bryan's vote in this precinct against

The free silver convention at Te
cumseh, together with the democrats
and pops, got together last evening
under one tent and tried in vain to
nominate a candidate for congress.
After fourteen ballots had been taken
without results, the convention at 1:20
this morning adjourned to 10 o'clock.
Matthew Gering and Sim Upton, both
of this county, were candidates before
the cosmpolitan convention. Judge
Broady was finally nominated on the

THE treasury-deficit In July was 13,
000,000. A large shortage, of course,
was expected, as expenditures are ord
inarily heavier in that month than in
any other in the year. The gold re
serve, however is again at safe figures,
amounting to nearly 8111,000,000. It
will probably remain on the right side
of the $100,000,000 line for several
months. The purpose of the banks to
supply gold to to the treasury when
needed la well known, and this will
have a quieting effect on timid people.
, Moreover, as the campaign progresses
the weakness of the repudiators and
destructionista . will be revealed, and
this will restore confidence 'and stop
the gold hoarding.
THIS IS NEBRASKA YEAR-
Duiing the past week a large num
ber of visitors from the middle states
have been abroad in Nebraska looking
the state over and taking note of the
prolific yield of grain that is io evi
dence on every hand. All newspaper
reports agree that these visitors have
been delighted with all that they have
seen and have been happily disap
pointed in the condition of the com
munities visited, all of which are far
more prosperous than they had been
led to believe.
Everything is "politics" these days,
yet every citizen of Nebraska can af
ford to "take a day "off" to stand up
for the material interests of the state,
and no matter how exciting political
discussions may become, the news
papers should find time and make
space to say something for Nebraska
that will live beyond a presidential year
und be of benefit after the next presi
dent has qualified and taken his seat.
A great deal can be said in behalf
of Nebraska, and when it is borne in
mind that the state has been slandered
and is greatly misunderstood in many
eastern and middle states, it may ap
pear to our people that no one should
bo backward about saying what he
has to say. In fact, every person
should be a committee of one to make
known to the extent of his ability the
advantages of this great state, the pro
ductiveness of the soil for the season
that is passing, the possibilities for
agricultural employment, and the
average of successful larraing during
a range of years as compared with
other states in the United States.
Those of us who have put in . a full
quarter century in Nebraska are com
petent to talk, and to sound Nebraska's
praises. People who have lived in
Nebraska that length of time have
seen a number of ups and downs, but
the condition of the harvest has not
always been the cause of hard times
or individual misfortune.
The people who visit Nebraska this
year will see the state at its best, and
the good reports that they will take
back to their neighbors will set the
tide of immigration again in motion.
Hence it is the duty of every citizen of
the state to be active in helping to
swell the tide and contributing to the
new era of prosperity that will set in
if the tariff and currency questions
are disposed of on business-like con
servative lines which will give an im
petus to investment and production.
PETTI FOGG INCi THE CASE.
The silver orators are saying in their
stump speeches that the republicans
denounce them for wanting to emit
dishonest money while the republican
platform "calls for this so-called dis
honest money by international agree'
This is a cowardly and dishonest
way of putting the question, even
though Mr. Bryan is one of the ora
tors who engages in it. What are the
The sound currency people are op
posed to the free and unlimited coin
age of silver at its present ratio for the
reason that they know such a whole
sale coinage would reduce the pur
chasing power of the silver dollar to
the fluctuating value of bullion that
is, the dollar coined free gratis for any
man who brought silver to the mint
would of necessity make the dollar
worth only from fifty to sixty cents;
that gold, being at a premium, would
entirely disappear from circulation, as
it did in war times. That a panic such
as the country never saw would be in
evitable. It is the consistent belief of
gold standard people that silver should
be used as money just as fur as its
parity with gold cad be maintained.
That the limit of silver coinage has
already been reached, as Is evident by
the raids on the treasury for gold by
the conservative business world since
the depreciation of silver bullion has
created serious doubt of its continued
maintenance any longer at par. The
sound money advocates aro not ene
mies of silver, as professional dema
gogues would have the public believe,
but on the contrary they favor the
white metal to such an extent that
they want it maintained at par with
gold at its present ratio, and they go
even further than that they say and
believe that if all the commercial na
tions of the- world would open their
mints to the free and unlimited coin
age of silver at its present ratio that it
might be maintained at a parity with
the yellow metal, and it is for that
reason the republican party honestly
says that it would favor free coinage
by international agreement. There is
nothing illogical or inconsistent in the
republican position. It is only cheap
demagogues like a pettifogging lawyer
in the trial of a case devoid of merit,
that 6eeks to befog a jury by digress
ing from the point at issue, and dis
tract the' minds of his hearers from
the real facts which condemn his posi
tion, by injecting a lot of sophistry
that won't bear even a casual analysis.
Younu Vanieiuhlt showed his
mettle in true Plebeian fashion and
married the girl despite his father's
protests and threat to cut him off.
His bride is a warmed-over one, who
was engaged to marry Cecil Baring,
bead of the great Baring . banking
house of London that went down in
the South American' collapse a few
years ago. Alter the failure the en
gagement was broken. She was "out
for the stuff," like all the rest of her
family, all of whom have rrarried into
the richest American families and 6he
didn't propose to be the victim of the
deflation of Argentine fiat money.
Her love for Baring deflated just as
quickly. She is eight years older than
young Vanderbilt, whose eyes will
eventually be opened. But his father
will probably be willing to buy him a
divorce. Ex. :
The populists woreoutfieured at the
recent convention, the democrats hav
ing had too strong a pull. The man
who deserted the pop crowd and nom
inated Broady was B. F. Allen of this
county, and his brother populists do
not feel first-rate over the deal, either.
The frictton which has been caused by
the democrats "hogging the game,"
will result in the loss of several votes
for Mr. Bryan, as the Tecumseh ob
ject lesson has opened the eyes of
many populists who are conscientious
in their devotion to populist principles
and have no special desire to boom
democracy. As a prominent populist
said to TnE News editor: "If Mr.
Bryan wants our votes let him come
out as a populist squarely and not try
to stoal our platform while wearing a
democratic cloak. The democratic
party would not be a factor in this cam
paign were it not for the assistance
from the people's party with which
they expect to save the life of waning
democracy, and I for one prefer to see
that organization go down rather than
build it up and kill the party I have
worked for ever since it was born.
The democratic scheme will not work
with lots of our people. I will not
vote the electoral ticket at all, but I
shall do all I can for Holcomb, the
best governor Nebraska ever had."
The editor of The Nkws finds many
populists of this opinion and the dis
satisfaction in the ranks seems to be
Buy an now knows that he has been
nominated for the presidency, but his
speech of acceptance was not that of
the bold knight of the western prai
ries, who throws down the gauntlet
and dares his antagonist to meet him
in the open field. On the other hand
it was largely defensive and consisted
of the usual platitudes and plays to
the gallery. It was neither broad nor
deep in the discussion of the platform.
but in some instances his sophistries
may rightfully have been called
adroit. The customary talk about
the omnivorous and soulless
east fattening from the down
trodden and hungry horde of western
toilers for obvious reasons. He made
the same old effort to stir up enmity
between the classes, and then not to
antagonize the wealthy and indus
trious too far. he explained and
smoothed over his views by show
ing favor to the man who ac
cumulated wealth as being entitled to
fair treatment under the law the same
as the man without a penny. The
speech was not quite so theatrical as
his western efforts, and can not be
considered as specially convincing.
It was one William J. Strong who
introduced our boy orator to the crowd
at Chicago and he said so much that
the orator was somewhat nonplussed to
find a place to chip in himself. Among
other things Mr. Strong said that
"our children are often tugging at our
coat-tails asking us for bread, that we
cannot give them because we are out
of work." Further on, Mr. Strong as
sured the people of Chicago that "any
thing stamped as a dollar by the
United States government was worth
a hundred cents and would betaken by
anybody for that sum." It would be a
bright idea for Mr. Strong to go down
to1 Washington and have himself
stamped that way. Then he could
come home and trade himself off for
bread for his hungry children. Why
not utilize himself that way since he
can't get work under Mr. Bryan's and
Mr. Wilson's tariff reform act?
Tiik auditor of the state of Colorado,
in his proposed action reveals the in
tolerance of silver fanaticism. Sev
eral life insurance companies have
sent out circular to their policy hold
ers, stating frankly the inevitable
losses that will come toevery holder of
life insurrnce, in case of free silver at
16 to 1 being successful. These state
ments aro absolute fact, verified in
the history of the worlds fiinance
again and again.
State Auditor Parks says these cir
culars evidence of insolvency on the
part of the companies and he proposes
to stop these companies from doing
any business in Colorado, which under
the state law it seems he has power to
da " This is ridiculous and intolerant
because the circulars are evidence of
an honest desire to protect the policy
holders, and not of insolvency at all
Mr. Parks writes himself down an ass,
that is all.
Duuino the civil war. when we had
a depreciated currency, the prices of
the necessaries of life advanced 200
per cent, while wages advanced only
149 per cent. The workinffman was a
loser, therefore, to the extent of 51
per cent; and a similar result would
ensue under the free silver policy.
The only real, genuine, all-wool-and-a-yard-wide
"boy orator of the Platte,"
our Col. Matthew Gering, was igno
miniously turned down at the Tecum
seh convention. Wo are not grieving
over J, as he would have polled more
vote .ban Mr. Broady will ever
able to muster.
McKinley and Bryan both made
speeches yesterday. The gist of Mc
Kinley 's speech was that ho believed
it better for the country to open up the
mills for American labor than the
mints for the silver of the world.
As Boukkk COCKUAN snys, there is
no half way ground in politics this
year. A man must be for the free
coinage of silver or he must be against
it. He must bo for Bryan or for Mc
Kinley. And yet there are news
papers that are neither for nor against
anybody or anything. This is the
kind of cowardice which makes such a
publication contemptible to all. This
is a poor year for mugwumps.
WHAT WILL BKYAN DO?
QWhat is Mr. Bryan going to do con
cerning the Populist nomination for
It will be remembered that, when
the populist convention decided to
nominate a candidate for the Vice
Presidency before the head of the
ticket, Mr. Bryan telegraphed to his
friends in that body that he would not
accept unless Sewall was nominated.
But Sewall was turned down, and
Tom Watson put up for second place,
and then Bryan was nominated, des
pite his telegram.
Then a motion was rushed through,
the purport of which was not under
stood by the greater portion of the
delegates, giving the national com
mittee "plenary powers," equal to
those of the convention itself.
This gives the committee authority
to name some other candidate for the
Presidency, should Bryan decline; or,
it has equal authority to yank Tom
Watson off, and put Sewall on.
Which will be done?
If Bryan accepts, it is certain that
Watson will be pulled off. It is im
possible for Bryan's name to be twice
on the Australian ballots, the laws of
most of the states forbidding such a
Mr. Bryan can not long preserve the
attitude of the Nebraska sphinx. He
must decide what he is going to do.
It is most probable that he will ac

and Sewall be put on, with a resulting
big kick from the"middle of the road

Prince Ito, premier of Japan, is in
tensely interested in the political cam
paign in this country and has a squad
of agents over here to find out about
it. The reason is that Ito himself was
badly bitten by the 16 to 1 dog. Some
years ago it occurred to him that in
order to keep Japan in bine with the
nations of the west it was necessary to
have some gold in her currency. He
was informed that the United States
was succeeding in tloating a large sil
ver currency, tho largest in the world
in proportion to population, on trie
basis of 16 to 1.
For some reason or other it escaped
him and his advisers that the United
States had accomplished this by
moans of a great reserve fund of gold
that was freely paid out on demand
for silver ana that tho goverment
coined its own silver on its own ac
count and was thus able to regulate
the volume thereof.
Ho therefore neglected to take a
similar precaution and endeavored to
establish free coinage of silver and
gold on the basis of 16 to 1 without
limit. Tho consequence has been that
every gold coin turned out in Japan
has been gobbled up for export or for
speculative purposes and that his at
tempt at bimetallism has resulted in
silver monometallism and that he is
no nearer his object today than he
was when he began to work for a bi

The mongrel convention which nom
inated Judge Broady at Tecumseh yes
terday was quite an affair. The free
silver republicans, forty in number,
led by the the gallant Colonel Pace of
Liu coin were there and had as much
to say as anybody. The softshell dem
ocrats and the populists, whom they
used to damn before they had to have
them to help elect Bryan, were there
in goodly numbers and the three sep
arate organizations were cooped up in
the same hall and a groat (?) conven
tion was the result of the mixing of

ject lesson on demogoguery, by trying
to pluck a $o00 diamond from the shirt

An indication of the wa in which
fre siiver is to affect business is shown
by recent dispatches sent out by the
press associations in regard to the
iron trade. It is impossible to make
sales of pig iron because of the agita
tion of free silver. Ihe use of iron is
so general in nearly all forms of in
dustrial undertaking: that the demand
for it, or lack of demand, is a sure in
dication of the condition of the public
pulse. The stoppage of the sales of
pig iron has led to the stoppage of the
