attorney if he had anything to say in
reference to the penalty and he stated
that he prosecuted the case to the best

DANIEL WEBSTER'S UTTERANCES.
The great "defender of the constitu
tion," Daniel Webster, was not in
sympathy with any plan for the cheap
ening of the currency or the deb:iso-
ment of the money standard. Hoar
what ho said over fifty years ago on
'The very man, of all others, who
has the deepest interest in a sound
currency, ana wno suners raosi, Dy
mischievous legislation in money mat
ters, is the man who earns his dail3
bread by his daily toil. " His
property is in his hands. Bis reliance.
his fund, his productive freehold, his
all, is his labor. Whether he work on
his own small capital or another's, his
living is still earned by his industry;
and when the money of the country
becomes depreciated ana debased,
whether it be adulterated coin or
paper without credit, that industry is
obbed of its reward. He then labors
for a country whoso laws cheat him
out of his broad. I would say to evory
owner of every quarter section of land
in the west, I would say to ever3 man
in the east who follows his own plow,
and to every mechanic, artisian and
laborer in every city in the country
I would say to every man, everywhere,
who wishes by honest means to gain
an honest living, "beware of wolves
in sheep's clothing." Whoever at
tempts, under whatever popular cry,
to shake the stability of the public
currency. 9tabs jour interests
and happiness to tho heart."

THE Nebraska City News has dis
covered (in his mind) a republican
scheme to buy honest democratic
votes on election d.iy. Ever since the
News crowd down there fell back on
to a regular diet of stewed crow, it

5-cent piece is coined, a few years ago
was $4 per pound. It is now a drug on
tho market at 27 cents per pound. Of
course some sort oi " 'is crime tias
been committed, and we think that
Bryan and his chief fuglemen owe it
to the American people that the
great wrong be righted; that the
dastardly outrage be pointed out, and
that the guilty be brought to the bar
of justice, where they can be made to
pay the full jenalty of their inf.imous
Candidate Bkyan says the gold
standard is a conspiracy against the
human race, but he neglects to men

and that the fathers of it were An
drew Jackson, John C. Calhoun and
others, who are pointed to today as
the heroic bires of modern democracy.
We have lived under the gold stand
ard continuously ever since ex
cept during the war period and up to
7S, when specie payments were again
resumed. The Bryan conspiracy talk
is a sample of blatant demagoguery
that ought to disgust thinking men
and drive from their minds entirely
the idea that Mr. Bryan is either hon
est or conscientious in the views
which he promulgates.

OUR DOLLAR IN MEXICO.
So many references have been made
to the difference between thepurchas
ing po-ver of the present American
standard silver dollar, the product of
limited co:nage and tho parity law,
and tho Mexican dollar, that what will
certainly be accepted "us an authentic
opinion will be useful to the people.
In the North American Review for
June, 1S!15, tho Mexican minister,
Senor 'Romeo, writes afollows:
"It is rathoi puzzling ana bewilder
ing to some travelers who go from this
country to Mexico to see that a United
St-Ues silver dollar, containing less
silver bullion than a Mexican silver
dollar, was exchanged there for two
Mexican silver dollars, when pure
silver was at about 59 cents an ounce.
But in such an exchange the Mexican
silver dollar is sold for the price of the
bullion it contains, while the United
Slates silver dollar is the representa
tive of a gold dollar and is, therefore,
merchandise bought to pay debts in
the United States or Europe." Times

its cures of colas and croup; Chamber

THE LIGHTEST DRAFT MOWER MADE.
Deerlng Roller Bearing ideal Mower, 4 1-2 and 5-Foot Cut,
A Round of Startling Victories
Has m irked the path of the Deering Ideal Mower. No grass is too heavy or too light, no land is too routrh and no
service is too severe for this plucky little Ideal hero. Instead of friction bearings it has rollers and balls; the crank
shaft is parallel with the ground so that the SELF-ADJUSTING PITMAN moves steadily BACK and forth in work
man Jke fashion: the separated ledger plates hold the grasses like the roller of a feed cutter, and nothing can escaDe
or draw In under the sickly; the adjustable drag bar pays the interest on the investment. "
The driver of the Ideal Mower can cut as slow as he likes and it is never neceesaay to back when starting.
The use of roller and ball bearings, has eliminated friction, and instead of grinding the bearings all the nower
is used in cutting grass. p
