Lincoln, August s. Jut at pres
'n! j.opulist. newsnapers and riates
liien ni'ii laying yreat stress on the
f,;ct th.-:t state warrants are at a pre
mium, wheroa- tiiey were at a dir-ount
two yea rs no. Tlie intention of the
popoerats seems ti be to txo before the
people with an argument that this
chaeiro in v;.iues is entirely due to
t he efi'ort-i of the prer-ent state lulmin-i-tration.
Jn fact this is to be one of
t he leading i.-r-ues in their campaing
and they expect to fool a largo num
ber of iieooie vviili tiiis m)i t of argu-Ui-'iit.
They will totaiiy ignore tlie
fact that Lincoln city warrants, Lin
coln school warrants and all other
warrants or b; nds within the state
oii'.iing a safe in vestment or sure re
turn of the money are aNo above p ir,
a .-.ure indication that the state admin-i-tration
is not entitled to the credit
of changing the ironey situation.
A prominent business man of this
city, in speaking o! the premium on
warronts, .-aid: "In lS'.Hl, when an at
tack was being made on the monetary
ry&tem (f the country and there was a
in ii il'i si de.-ire on the partt.f tlie pop
ocratr of the United States to debase
the t tl: i-eney and iay debts of s 1 i
kinds in oii-cent do:la-s, it was natural
t;i:it men with mo iey at their com
mand should deciine investments and
that there shou.d ue no demand for
warrants, bonds or other paper of that
class. State warrants were below par
for want of bidders and wai rants of
tho city of L.ncoln went down so low
that they were out of the market.
Tho prices have gone up simply be
cause the lie.ancial system of the coun
try is on a substantial basis and the
m-wkct is full of money hunting for
investments. Stale, city and school
warrants are above par and even the
simple I. O. IJ. V of the Lincoln lire
department are bringing 100 cents on
the dollar for the first time. The pop
ocratie state otlieers are entitled to no
credit. In fact tho condition of aft lirs
is exactly what they tried to v event
when they .vaged tlie free silver cam
paign i n 1 &!(. "
Another proof that the plentitude of
money is what brings warrants to a
premium lies in the fact that banks
are refusing to ptiy interest on indi
vidual deposits and that many of the
institutions that are le.:al depositories
of the pub.ie funds are declining to
pay the customary three p?r cent and
are making a united move to h iv
the rate reduced. They lind it diffi
cult to invest or loan money at a profit
and in some cases lind it necessary to
buy state warrants with the money of
depositees in order to keep busv. The
individual who has a few dollars idie
and is refused interest on his deposit
at the bank is glad to invest in war
rants even tnouga the net earnings
are less than two cents per annum.
The attaches of the statj house them
selves buy up state warrants with
their surplus money, rather than to
deposit it in banks or seek for bor
rowers in a market that is already
c -owtled with idle capital. Thtse con
ditions and the positive proof that
practically the same change has been
brought cut in every state in the ut ion
will not prevent the ice il pooocrats
from distorting the facts from the
stump in evety county in the state,
and word has already been sent out to
the country papers to take up the cry
about "'the state warrants that have
g 'lie to a premium under populist control.''
