-THE MAYOR OF NEW YORK.
The mayorship of the new Greater
New York, the second largest city in
the world, excites great interest all
over the country. Tammany, the
most corrupt political organization
which ever existed, is trying hard to
get control. The latent turn, result
ing in the nomination of Henry
George as a Bryaniie,evidently discon
certs the Tammanvites and may re
sult in the election of a republican.

George situation as follows:

have them automatically pusses

INFORMATION AND OPINIONS.
Fuse siver and spoils is a good
enough Morgan to play for fusion in
Nebraska, where without the populists
the democrats have not the ghost of a
show for success, but free silver is
thrown overboad in New York, where
it means the repulsion of democratic
votes tnat are more attractive than
. ftopullst support. The democratic
policy of working the populists is to
be observed only where there are
enough populists to make an object.
China, which has long been one of
tbe few countries which lived up to
the Bryan standard of free silver has
of late chosen a cheaper metal and is
now stamping copper coins. Since
Bryan has shown a desire to follow
China , and Mexico rather than the
countries of civilized Europe, we need
"not be surprised if be advocates in
1900 the free ana unlimited coinage of
copper. The silver theory works as
well on copperas it does on silver, and
the old speeches would not need much
retouching to do service again.
Chas. T. CVFarkALX, the demo
cratic governor of Virginia, the
mother of presidents, in a speech de
livered September 11, said: "I am
confident that the doctrines of the
Chicago platform will '' not much
longer be masqueraded as democratic
principles. Free silver is retreating
before the returning - tide of pros
perity. It can only ' live oo 'hard
times. It is beginning to pant for
breath already, under the pressure of
the advance in wheat and the re
opening of mills, mines and factories.
The free silver slogan ot last fall, "as
silver falls wheat falls; as silver ad
vances wheat advances," is no longer
heard, and the people are fast learn
ing that it is the law of supply and de
mand, and not the price of silver,that
controls -the prices of the farmer's
products and the laboring man's
wages. Freo, unlimited and indepen
dent coinage is doomed, and no
strong political party of tho present.
or future, will ever put itself to death
by declaring for it in national convention."
TliE publication of the receipts and
attendance at the last state fair has
stirred up a hornet's nest that the
managers little suspected. It shows
that there was a less attendance of
nearly 7,000 as compared with last
year, and the tickets sold by the rail
roads show that many did not go out
to tbe grounds even after having pur
chased a ticket. Discussing this ques
tion the World-Herald says: "Again
we are told that the receipts fromcon
cossioos and .privileges fell off $600
from what they were last year, yet
there never was a fair held in Ne
braska where so many fakirs, side
shows and catch-penny devices were
licensed to do business. If tbe re
receipts from this source fell off it
must have been because of bad man
agem ent or a big freak." Ex,
IN the matter of granting the writ
of supercedeas in the Bartley case
neither Judge Post or the supreme
court, as aucb, had anything to do
with it. The application was made to
Judge Norval. who gi anted the writ,
and while the pop attorney general
was willing to accept a $125,000 bail
bond tbe judge made it $125,000. This
feature has resulted in Bartley laying
in jail pending his appeal to the su
preme court. It took a republican
county attorney to prosecuto Bartley
and a republican judge to sentence
him to twenty years in the pea. The
much praised pop attorney general
was a mere figure-heal in the case.
The insinuation that Judge Post or
the republican party of this state are
in the least desirous of shielding any
wrongdoer,' is mere campaign bosh,
of which the common people are get
ting very tired. McCook Republican.
