APPEALS TO SOUND SENSE.
Adlreft8 of Major MfKInley at Canton
Fall of Sound Logic.
"Now what is this thing: called busi
ness confidence?' It is a belief ia the
stability of values, faith in our mar
keta aud our money, faith that the
consumption of next year will be as
great or greater than the present one;
faith that men will have work and
that the currency of the country will
be Gxed and stable, and undepreciat
ing in value. (Great applause.)
"The merchant has confidence
when? There may be some merchants
in this audience today. The mer
chant has confidence when he stocks
his shelves with more goods in expec
tation of large sales.
"The manufacturer has confidence
when he increases his machinery,hires
more men, adds a new factory, lays in
his material in advance, certain that
it will not decline before his finished
product is sold, confident that he can
pay wage9 to labor and prices for his
raw material, and not find that in the
end his goods will be driven out of the
American market by foreign goods
under a free trade policy.
(Tremendous cheering and cries of
"That's the gtulTI")
"The Jaborer feels this condfienco
when, assured of steady employment,
ho buys a lot and starts the building
of a house for himself and family. The
farmer feels this confidence when he
plants generously, confident that what
he reaps will be in demand and bring
him fair return for his toil. The rail
road company feels it when it extends
its lines and Its switches, gets new
equipment and gives employment to
workingmen. The banker feeis
it when he loans freely of
his capital and deposits aud knows
that when his loans are returned they
will be in good sound money. (Great
applause.) And the depositor feels
this confidence when he takes his
money from it hiding place where
much of it is today and puts it in a
bank, sure that be can draw it out ac
cording to bis necessity or inclination
in as good money as he pui in. (Great
"This thing called 'business confi
dence' never shut up an Amerijan
mill; never reduced wages or curtailed
employment; never refused loaus;
never stopped a mine; never got up a
run on a bank; never created idleness
among laboring men. (Applause.)
When confidence is present with us
the sheriff has less to do (great laugh
' ter and applause) aud vertices fuw
foicsd ealfc the court docket registers
fewer judgments; public charity is
" less evoked, and the 'free feoup house'
is unknown and unnecessary. (Tre
mendous cheering.) When confidence
is shaken, misfortunes come not
singly, but in battalions, and suffering
falls on every community. (Applause.)
"No part cf our population is ex
empt. It may come f: cm one thing or
it may come from another.
"Doubt in the business world is
death to business. (Applause and
cries of "That's niiht.'") Wo have it
now. Wu know the li.mr it came.
(Great cheering.) We know what
- brought it, and I think we know how
to get rid of it. (Tremendous cheei -nnd
cries of "You bot we do.") Wo
have had it in the United States to a
greater or less degreo from the mom
ent it was settled in 1S92 that our pro
tective laws wero to be changed.
"It continued until the changes
were actually made, and still longer
until the people in 180-1 elected a re
publican uational house of representa
tives and made it impossible to cut
deeper into tho industries of our
country. (Great applause. )
War Aiiioiir tlie 'ativf8
Judge Archer's court is busy today
trying the case of state vs. David Rice,
who is charged with assaulting his
next door neighbor, John Lane. John
says that he rented some land'next to
the Rice domicile and that ho had cut
some wood on his land which tho Rice
family had purloined aud used, and as
it is a long lane that has no turning,
so this Lane turned and accused the
Rices' of stealing his wood. This
raised the ire of the family, and, as
they say in the scriptures, "wilh one
accord they set upon him, "resulting in
severe bruises on the bodv of Lane
frotr. coming in conflict with ciubs and
rocks and serious loss of peace of mind.
This was John's story, but the Rice
family talk very differentlj claim to
be quiet and law abiding and intimate
that John must have clubbed himself.

brought down the facts cf history and
logic of events so iriisUtibly in proof
of protection that to hear him was

There was a split in the Red Cloud
band the other day because the ma
jority of its members refused to play
the "Conquering Hero Comes" on the
night that Mr.Holcomb made a speech
there. Seven or eight of the members

places were immediately filled by re
publican musicians. Red Cloud now
has one of the best bands in the 'state
since the change.
The Plattsmoutii News thinks
that the republicans of Lincoln, while
a fairly shrewd crowd, should not have
neglected to have the spirits of Thom

terrogated on the silver question at
the recent session of spiritualists in
this city. The News is modestly in
formed that such an opportunity was
not neglected, aud that when the
pirits of those noted democrats ap
peared in answer to the question and
saw McKinley's portrait on tho wall
they smiled and winked the other eye.

Dr. J. 11. McLEAH'S
Views of Tilden on Unnountl Finance.
Uncertainty ia the prolific parent of
mischief in all business. Men do noth
ing, because they are unable to make
any calculations on which they may
safely rely. They undertake nothing
because they fear a loss in everything
they would attempt.
They hope and wait. The merchant
dares not buy for the future consump
tion of his customer. The manufact
urer dares not make fabrics which
may not refund his outlay. He shuts
his factory and discharges his work
men. Capitalists cannot lend on se
curity they consider unsafe, and their
funds lie almost without interest.
Men of enterprise who have credit or
securities to pledge will not borrow.
The people need to know that the gov
ernment is moving in the direction of
ultimate safety and prosperity, and
that it'is doing so through prudent,
safe and conservative methods which
will be sure to inflict no new sacrifice
on the business of the country. Then
the inspiration of new life and well
founded confidence will hasten the re
storing processes of nature and pros
perity will begin to return. From
