Official County Paper. CAPITAL CORRESPOSDKJiCE. Washington, D.C., May 24, 1SU4. It appears that the senate has finally "got a move" on itself respecting the tariff bill, and, although nearly every thing has been given away to the traffickers in particular "industries" or interests the Gormans, Urices, Mur phys, Smiths aud Camdens, who have had rates raised to suit them and their friends outside the senate in certain lines the bill is now being pushed with some vigor, and about one-third of the items have been gone over and agreed to. Gorman has at last been heard from, and he comes out for "in cidental protection" the platform on which Lincoln was first elected. It is also evident that the republicans have got through with most of their talk, and from this on there is likely to be rapid progress, and Brice's prophesy is likely to come true the bill will be finished mid nassed bv the 15th of June. What the conference committee will do then is a question. Of course all western democrats will hope tha'c the bill may fall into the hands of real democrats, who will put back the house provisions again and compel the traders to vote for it. Such a coarse would give us a democratic victory this fall, sure. I notice that my friend, Annin, of the Lincoln Journal, is doing right well for a starter in his effort to write Mr. Bryan down. Of course everybody here understands the animus of Mr. Annin's persistence in that direction. Considering that he has the reputation of acting and drawing pay as clerk or secretary for Senator Manderscn and Mr. Ilainer, of the house, and possibly of Mr. Mercer also, it is to be expected that he would do a manly part by them and do what he could to knock out the man whose success might shelve the ambition of hi3 employers-. Iu addi tion, therefore, to the ordinary antag' onisra of partisanism, Mr. Annin has the ndded one of strong personal inter est to spur him into vigorous antag onism. His aim now seems to be to make it appear that Mr. Bryan is wear ing out here in his influence; but for the life of me I have yet to find the first person to agree with him. In fact, if I were to even tell the whole truth as to his popularity in Washing ton and in eastern cities, many Ne braska people would imagine that I was greatly exaggerating. The fact that he is over-run with calls or re quests to speak at college commence mentsand on similar occasions all over the eastern states ii evidence of itself on that subject. At this moment he is absent at Greensboro, North Carolina, where he spoke today at the university commencement on "Money." Last week he addressed the graduating class of the Baltimore law school, and early in June will address the graduating class of the law department of the Georgetown university in this city, and was invited, and but for his lack of time to prepare a suitable address, would have made the principal oration at Arlington on Decoration day. He has, however, consented to make a short address that day to young men. Plainly, therefore, the wish is father to the thought ia Mr. Annin's very vivid imagination. So he is likewise mistaken in his statement that Mr. B. contem plates joining the populists. When ever the populists adopt a platform consistent with the democratic plat form, as he has defined it, there may be a chance to get him to stand on it, and not till then. And, by the way, it seems that Mr. Morton is again convinced that Mr. Bryan is going to become a populist. That isn't anything new for him. He made a similar charge last year, while Mr. Bryan was making his southern tour, but it didn't "take," as they say about vaccination, then any more than it will now. For a great man, it oc curs to me that Mr. Morton can be about as small and mean as anybody when he tries. j Coxey, Browne and Jones, the com - uionweal leaders, are in jail, serving .out a twenty days' sentence for their awful crime of walking on the grass at the capital grounds and carrying ban ners on the first of May the "banners" consisting of badges about two inches wide and four inches long, bearing the inscription of the "Commonweal of Christ" as invented by the eccentric genius, Carl Browne, whom nearly all Plattsmoutli will remember as the man who unrolled a panoramic pictuie of the "aggressions of the money power" on the streets there in 1S92, and lec tured about it. The commonweal, their followers, are in the meantime in camp in the vicinity of the city, and its members have won the good will of the public by their good behavior. The general judgment of the public here is that the leaders were sent to jail to punish them for their political opin ions and to overawe others, and not be cause they committed a crime. The authorities could not make martyrs of them moie thoroughly than they have do'ie. When the other "armies' come here they will have more friends than Coxey had as a result of police and police court misrule and brutal severity. The house committee of the whole knocked out the salary appropriation t pay the salaries of the civil service commission. This was done because of the general opinion that the commis sion is not conducted in accordance with the spirit of the law, and that the president has not treated democratic members of the board in a proper spirit. The debate was one of the liveliest and most interesting of the session. lint for this time mi feed. C. W. S. UIVK II 1H AN A TOliA, Chicago Times. Though William J. Bryan, the bril liant young congressman from Ne braska, has positively declined to be a candidate for re-election to the lower house, the democracy of that state should not permit him to retire from politics. Mr. Bryan has said that while he will not make the race for congress agtiu he is willing and proposes to de vote all his influence and ability to the service of the causes of silver and tariff reform in the west and to the consoli dation of the Nebraska democracy on those issues. Such is the true demo cratic spirit the willingness to serve people and party by voice, vote and precept in private as well as official life. But however willing, Mr. Bryan can not nearly so well render this patriotic service to the cause of democracy while remaining at home in Nebraska as he could from the more commanding van tage ground of the national capital. And if the people of Nebraska appre ciate Mr. Bryan's value as it is appre ciated bv the rest of the west he wil be sent back to Washington again not to the house, however, but to the senate Bryan is a young man, but his politi cal career has been eventful and his of ficial record is a bright one. Few members of the Fifty-third congress have been as active as the Nebraska representative, aud fewer still have p'aced their efforts so persistently and intelligently in support of the interests of the masses and the grand principles bequeathed to the democracy by Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jack son. He first attracted general atten tion by a ringing tariff speech, delivered in March, 1S92, and the principles he then enunciated were subsequently em bodied into the platform adopted by the democratic national convention the tariff pledges of which platform we are sorry to say, the administration has failed iu every point to redeem In the same speech Mr. Bryan advo cated an income tax, and he has ever been found a stanch supporter of that measure, of free silver coinage at a 16 to-1 ratio, and of tariff reform. In February he opposed the repeal of the Sherman law until a free coinage sub stitute should have been passed, and in his Bpeech on the seigniorage he took the correct position that raids on the treasury would only cease when the secretary exercised the authority vested iu him to pay such demands in silver as he saw fit. Mr. Bryan has also, as a member of the ways and means com mittee, fought for economy in appro priations and government expenses and he has always insisted that United States senators should be elected by the direct vote of the people In everything, from his jury bill to his tariff speeches, from bis position on the income tax to his expressions on bimetallism, Mr. Bryan has stood up for the interests of the people, the in terests of the producers of the west and south as opposed to the selfish schemes of the mortgage sharks and money lenders of the east. He is a democrat of democrats, a statesman whose bril liant performances of the past have shed luster upon the name of the state he represents. In the interests of sil ver, of tariff reform, of just taxation '0f democracy, of the common peopl Mr. Bryan should not be permitted by the voters of Nebraska to retire to pri vate life. He should not be sent to congress to represent a district, but to the senate to represent a state, a sec tion, a principle. The senate needs re juvenation and the infusion of the vigorous young blood of the west sadly. No better man could be found to begin the task than William J.Bryan. Ne braska will do herself honor when she invests this young Ajax she has nur tured with the toga. The Nebraska City News has lately been barking about Tiik Journal to an extent which makes one weary. One claim which the News makes is that Tiik Journal is "close to crawl ing into the populist camp." If the News had said republican instead of populist, the editor of this paper might have just cause to feel angry, but as the News said populist, a laugh is only iu order. The Journal editor was a democrat long before the News de- famer discarded knee breechwH, anl as ong as the democratic party advocates democratic principles and makes an honest effort to carry the aforesaid principles into effect, lie will continue to be a democrat. But how about the News? It is a notorious faet, and one which dare not te denied, that a cer tain "clique of so called democrats, led by the News," has been making a cease less war within the ranks for no other reason than that a great majority of the party members honestly believe in the recognition of silver as a money. The News is a gold-bug organ that is. Secretary Morton is a gold-bug. aud as the editor of the News lacks the gray matter to think for himself, he follows the secretary's tip, aud while yelping for gold, takes good care to stick a knife into Congressman Brjan, as well as to question the democracy of every free-silver democrat in the district. The . Journal editor included. This is the milk in the cocoanut. Such oi gans as the News have worked the party more harm than can well be reckoned. The Nebraska democracy has harbored such traitors long enough. Out with them, we say. The party is big and broad enough to contain men whose views honestly differ on the coinage question, but when it comes to such notoriously treacherous sheets as the News, their further company is not wanted. Far better everlasting defeat at the polls, than that success should be attained with such villainous assist ance. The Washington dispatches assure us that the republicans of the house are "still kicking" against the enforce ment of the salary-docking statute. Let them kick. They have only them selves to thank for the revival of that law. They wasted weeks of filibuster ing agaiust any legislation whatever unless the majority furnished a quo rum, and the enforcement of the regu lation which compels them to attend congress or forfeit their pay is due to their own "smartness." It is fre quently tVte case that very smart people are uot as smart as they think. Somebody will make a neat sum on shgar when the new tariff goes into effect. The importations of free sugar. exclusive of beet sugar are larger than were ever known before. In the four months ending March 31, the amount imported was 277,000,000 pounds in ex cess of the importations for the corres ponding period last year, and they are still heavy. All this comes in free, and most of it has been imported by the sugar trust, the largest dealer in this sugar in this country. The profits when the tax goes on will be some thing big. No wonder the sugar trust certificates are high up in pi ice on Wall street. Deafueaa Cannot be Curril LSy local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness Is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the eustachian tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces. We will give one hundred dollars for any case of deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O. 3?SoId by druggists, 75c.
