In referring to tiio amount of

Dan V. Stephens, for congress,

to beat him.
The opposition to Miss Foster
for a third term was not very
consistent in their opposition to
her when they voted for two
officials and elected them, one for
the sixth term and another for
"SOLD TO HIGH FINANCE!"
On Ihe day that Joseph Pulitzer
died his great newspaper, the
New York World, printed a nota
ble editorial. It bore the heading,
"Heaping the Whirlwind," and in
part it read as follows:
"There are those who think
that the substantial business
structure of the country is break
ing down under tho trust assaults
of the federal department of
justice. This is wrong. What is
giving way is a false superstruct
ure built up in years of political
iniquity which sought to roof in
the whole power of government
for selfish individual use. The
main structure trembles under
tho shock, but no more.
"The finanical debauch which
beset this country from the elec
tion of 1890 has had no parallel
in modern times. That election
was a victory for sound money,
as the people understood it. It
was the execution of a bill of the
country's sale to high finance, as
Mr. Hanna and his followers un
derstood and gave notice.
"How this private property in
government was capitalized into
individual pockets is written large
in late history. The tariff was
first given another uplift, and
then, with the Spanish war out of
the way, the suppression of com
petition to get the full private
benefit of tariff swept through the
country like a whirlwind. Trusts
and trusts and trusts rose in
scores; millionaires were made in
a day; the shadow of the billion
aire appeared; and captains of
high finance sought a ratification
of special bargains in the WhiU
"They built up Zion with blood,
and Jerusalem with iniquity. They
sowed tho wind. Has anybody
supposed tho whirlwind was to be
avoided? U had to come; it is
here; and the sooner the inevita
ble reaping is over Ihe better."
That is a courageous utter
ance, coming, as it does, from a
newspaper published in the
shadow of Wall street, and from
a newspaper, too, that used allots
powerful influence in behalf of
the party which, in the campaign
of 1890, executed the "bill of the
country's sale to High Finance."
The entire country paid the
bitter cost then. It has been pay
ing it through all the years that
have intervened. And it is still
paying the innocent along with
For fifteen years, under that
bill of sale, high tariff extortion
has been practiced, trust extor
tion has been practiced, monopoly
has been bulldcd and buttressed,
until now the condition has be
come such that it is no longer en
durable Tho process of de
molishing what has been built is
beginning and "the main struct
ure is trembling under tho shock. '
How different might be the con
dition had the history of the last
fifteen years been written other
wise! How different if govern
ment, for fifteen years, had de
voted itself to protect ing the peo
ple, enforcing the laws, denying
special privileges and restraining
with an iron hand tho onward
sweep of monopoly!
It is heavy, heavy usury that
has been paid "the saviors of the
national honor" in 18901 World
Herald. :o: .

The Maxwtll victory is made

This undisputed evidence of re
liability of Maxwell cars is no sur

who have learned to know the de
pendability of the car through years
of consistent daily service.
No car ever made has achieved
a record approaching the Maxwell

proof? You can investigate. Tho
case is right at home.
Herman Tiekoetter, Ninth and
Day streets, Plattsmouth, Neb.,
says: ' I never used another
that brought as great
benefit as Doan's Kidney Pills. My
kidneys were disordered and there
va9 a dull, tired acho across the
small of my back that distressed
me a great deal. If I stooped my
back pained me severely and in
the morning when I arose I felt as
tired as when I went to bed.
Hearing Doan's Kidney Pills high

Rynott & Co.'s Drug Store, and it
was not long before I was entirely
relieved." (Statement given June
