A POLITICAL. LIE NAILKD.
Asiibury Park, N. J., Sept. 13.
My Dear Mr. Whedon, Lincoln, Neb.
I have received a democratic paper
published in Nebraska The Falls
City News which in opposing the
election of Congressman Burkett prints
an editorial from which I copy this re
garding Mr. Burkett:
"But he did vote against a pension.
The widow of the brave and honored
Stotsenburg made application for a
pension, believing that the government
owed this much to her in return for
the life of her husband, who was
"killed while battling in the Philip
pines. It is charged that Mr. Burkett
voted against the bill upon the ground
that Colonel Stotsenberg was a demo
crat." I really cannot understand how any
person can make or publish such a
Last autumn when I was visiting at
your house Mr. and Mrs. Burkett
called on me and the former then vol
unteered to do everything in hia power
to secure for me an increase of pension.
After congress met ho introduced
my bill and bad charge of it until it
became a law. No one could have
been moro earnest or active In my be
half than was Mr. Burkett.
After the committee reported in
favor of giving me $40 per month, he
succeeded in getting the amount raised
to $50 per month in the house.
The statement that he voted against
my bill is utterly untrue. Both my
self and my little girls are greatly in
debted to Mr. Burkett for his effective
but he changed his mind, as great
men sometimes do.
THE demand for city and state war
rants is one of the best signs of the
times. When 4 per cent state war
rants bring a premium, and when 7 per
cent city warrants that run but a short
time bring 2 per cent premium, think
ing people conclude that money is more
plentiful and that times are not to be
compared to the gloomy period from
which the country emerged shortly
after the election of 1896. The organ
ization of new savings banks and the
seeking of small investments by wage
earners indicate that the money power
has for the time being relaxed its hold
on the country's financial throat and
that it is possible to live and enjoy
plenty while the country is adminis
tered by a wise and capable govern
ment. Lincoln Journal.
There is one Nebraska farmer who
has discovered a logical reason for vot
ing the democratic ticket. He had a
big crop this year and bad to harvest
it without help, for the simple reason
that he could hire no one to help him.
He complains that while he was work
ing like a nailer getting in his crop
large crowds of able-bodied men with
plenty of money jingling in their pock
ets were attending ball games in town.
Sioux City Journal.
"The goIH standard makes dear
money and dear money makes cheap
products and cheap men. Prosperity
must begin with the workingman and
Coloncl Cbeodore Roosevelt on finance
(Extracts from His Letter of Acceptance).
To put into practice the principles embodied in the Kan
sas City platform would mean grave disaster to the nation,
for that platform stands for reaction and disorder; for an up
setting of our financial system, which would mean not only
great suffering, but the abandonment of the nation's good faith,
and for a policy abroad which would imply the dishonor of the
flag and an unworthy surrender of our national rights.
The policy of the free coinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1
is a policy fraught with destruction to every home in the land.
It moans untold misery to the head of every household, and
above all to the women and children of every, home.
If we are to prosper, the currency of this" country must te
based upon the gold dollar worth 100 cents.
The parallel between what Jefferson did with Louisiana
and what is now being done in the Philippines is exact.
The simple truth is that there is nothing even remotely
resembling "imperialism" or "militarism" involved in the
present development of that policy of expansion which has
been pnrt of the history of A merica from the day when she
became a nation.
The only certain way of rendering it necessary for our re
public to enter on a career of "militarim" would be to aban
don the Philippines to their own tribes, and at the same time
either to guarantee a stable government among these tribes
or to guarantee them against outside interferenee.
Properly speaking, the question is now not whether we
6hall expand for we have already expanded but whether we

he should be so maliciously maligned.
Very truly yours,
Maky L Stotsenburg
. P. S. I should like to write further
on this subject because I feel that tt is
an unjust aspersion on Mr. Burkett's
conduct of ray pension caso but I feel
very much exhausted this evening,
having just returned from New York,
whcre.I wont to consult a specialist in
regaid to my health. Trusting that
you will correct this false statement, I
am very sincerely
. - Mary L Stotsenburg.

(Extracts from Speeches.)
The best policy in this world for man
or nation is duty.
Cultivate good homes, make them
pure and sweet, elevate them, and
other good things will follow.
The geaiusof the nation, its freedom,
its wisdom, its humanity, its courage,
its justice, favored by divine provi
dence, will make It equal to every task
and the master of every emergency.
Patriotism must be faithful as well
as fervent; statesmanship must be wise
as well as fearless not the statesman
ship which will command the applause
of the hrur, but the judgment of pos
terity. Can we leave these people, who, by
the fortunes of war and our own acta,
are Helpless and without government,
to chaos and anarchy, after we have
destroyed the only government they
have had? Having destroyed their
government, it is the duty of the
American people to provide for them
a better one.
"If McKlnley and the republican
party are successful and put in power
for the next four years wages will be
decreased, hard times will come upon
us, and over the land the price of
wheat will go down and the price of
gold will go up; mortgages on our
homes will be foreclosed by the money
lenders; shops and factories will close.
We will export no goods and we will
import' from foreign lands all the
goods we use; thus will ruin, want and
misery be with us." Bryan In 1896.
Mr. Bryan insists that he would,
under no circumstance, accept a sec
ond term. If he were president now
and doing as well for the nation as
President McKInley, the people would
certainly insist on his re-considering
the matter and again accept the honor.
It will be remembered he said he
would stay on his front porch this fall.
the farmer and work upward. The
free coinage of sliver will do this,
hence, when wo open the mint wo will
start the fact; there is no other way."
"I HAVE no lieht or knowledge not
common to my countrymen. I do not
prophesy. The present is all-absorbing
to me. But I cannot bound my
vision by the blood-stained trenches
around Manila, where every red top,
whether from the veins of an Ameri
can soldier or a misguided Filipino,' is
anguish to my heart, but by the broad
range of future years, when that group
of islands, under the impulse of the
year just past, shall have become the
gems and glories of those tropical seas
a land of plenty and of increasing
possibilities; a people redeemed from
indolence and habits, devoted to the
arts of peace, in touch with the com
merce and trade of all nations, enjoy
ing the blessing of freedom, of civil
and religious liberty, of education and
of homes, and whose children and chil
dren's children shall for ages hence
bless the American republic because
it emancipated and redeemed their
fatherland, and set them in the path
way of the world's best civilization."
The attendance in our High school
has increased from seventy in 1893 to
204 in 1900. This not only speaks well
for the school itself, but it shows that
the children of the masses are now
taking advantage of the opportunity
to get a High school education. A few
years ago the sentiment prevailed that
it was nonsense for a boy or girl who
did not expect to teach or enter some
profession to secure a High school
education; today the people generally
feel that every boy and girl, who can
possibly do so, should complete the
course of study arranged by the board

Philadelphia, Sept. 19. The leader
of the strike said at the end of th
ewond day that 118,000 of the 11,000
mine workers in the anthraolt coal
fields were idle. No representative of
the mine operators made a statement
for their side of the matter, but In
dividual mine owners disputed the
strikers' figures, aylng that there are
more men at 'work than the union
leaders will admit. The first advance
In the price of coal as a result of the
strike was made by the Philadelphia
and Reading Co. yesterday, 25 cents
per ton being added. This advance
was promptly met by the local dealers,
who Increased the price to consumers

the neighboring towns of Lykena and
Wiconlsco are on strike, and threaten
to compel the Willlamstown men to

town men was held last night, at
which It was decided to stand firm
against any attempt on the part of the

Sheriff Relff has sworn in 150 deputies,
who will act in conjunction with a

The operators said they had nothing

that they can see no settlement In view

to cripple public utilities, but the strik

RAILROAD NOTES AND PERSONALS
A new compartmeet car is being run
