Official County Paper.
Washington, I. C, June S, 1SH4-
The house wound up the debate on
the Brawley bill for the repeal of the
10 per cent, tax on state banks, and.
much to the surprise ot al!,the measure
only received 10-votes with 170apainst
it. The fate of the measure is much
bemoaned by southern members, who
doted very much on its passage. The
Nebraska delegation did a veiy unusual
thing l-y voting as a unit against the
measure Messrs. Bryan, McKiegban
and Meiklejohn making speeches
aeainst it. Mr. Bryan was only al
lowed five minutes on the tloor, but
was permitted, like many others, to
extend bis remarks in the Iteconl. He
bad piepared an exhaustive argument,
and I predict that it will attract as
much attention as any of his former
speeches. He covers, in brief, the
money question iu general, and while
he does not question the right of
state banks to issue notes, be thinks it
bad policy. He attacks the system
because it is, like the national bank
svstem, the granting of a special privi
lege to favored persons, and that is
contrary to the spirit of our institutions
and is especially undemocratic.
In the progress of the consideration
of the tariff biil in the senate the sugar
schedule was voted on Tuesday, and
populists here are, or profess to be
badly broken up because Senator Allen
voted for the amendments proposed by
the democratic committee which, they
say, was the schedule dictated by the
sugar trust, and will net that combina
tion several millions, ferhaps Mr.
Allen make a mistake in that matter,
but if he did it is the tirst he has made
besides, that vote was not conclusive.
1 have no idea that that schedule will
ever get through the committee of con
feieuce in the form it passed the
senate. He mav have considered it
best to hurry through with the bill.
The senate committee, which is in
vestigating the crookedness of its
members, has not had its woik in vain
and it it don t unearth some serious
t iookedness yet will come near to it
as to make things hot enough to smoke.
Senator Mcl'herson was pushed s-
close by Senator Allen that be ad
mitted having speculated in sugar
stocks, but claimed that the only
suspicious thing he did in that line
was the result of an "accident." ft
vas a poor excuse, but may result in
clearing him on the score that "it
was a little one." There is a strong
foundation for the belief that the sugar
trust has given out some of the money
it brought here in March where it will
lie most productive of results for it
self. The air is full of rumors to that
effect, and I am glad the republicans
in the senate are doing what they can
to "smoke out" the guilty participants
in their villainy. Of course all under
stand that their motive is none the
best in the world, and that when they
made up the McKinley bill they did
the same sort of thing they now charge
upon the democrats by putting on a
duty for the benelit of the reiiners; but
no matter for that the public have a
right to know who the rascals are. no
matter which party they belong in.
The present indications are that the
senate will get to a final vote on the
tariff bill by the latitat the farthest;
and then it will go into conference
where the strong men of the house and
senate will come into contact and we
shall see who comes out best.
The rich men of New York are not
yet willing to let the income tax
feature remain in the bill, and my
prediction is they will yet discount the
sugar trust in the use of money to de feat
that measure. And, a good many
people don't know it, its true
that the great New York life insurance
concerns control more ready cash
than any other combinations
in America or the world, for that
matter. Why, there's Richard Mc
Curdy of the Mutual Life alone can, I
am credibly informed, put his fingers
on 5190,000,000 of cash any day he
chooses, and there are several others,
drawing immense salaries yearly, who
are equally interested in crushing the
little 2 per cent tax on incomes and on
corporations. Is it to be wondered
that these great life companies have
grow immensely wealthy, while they
have been for years insuring men's
lives at an average price of nearly $35
on the 51,000, while it is stated by
adepts in the business that it only
costs these companies an average of ?"
on each J 1, 000 of insurance. Under
such circumstances it is no wonder
these concerns can and do pay their
officers $5,000 and $50,000 and even
greater Burns in salaries. It is siugular,
however, that the metropolitan news
paper press has not long ere thii ven
tillated the big steal there is in this
old-line system of life insurance.
David H. Mercer, the eiiterprijirig
member of congress from Omaha, has
evidently not had his eye single on
legislation for his people this spring,
for he yesterday led to the matrimonial
altar a most estimable young woman.
Miss Birdie Abbott, of Minneapolis
i sister of the wife of Col. Lochren,
the commissioner of pensions, who lias
been here upending the winter. Mr.
Mercer is one of the heaitifst men to
meet that there is in congress, and
the writer joins the ciowd in wishing
him all the happiness attainable in the
man iage relation. CW.S.
( Al l. TO KI'KK SILVKK IIKMOCRAIS
Believing that the question of the
restoration of the double standard of
gold and silver as money of ultimate
redemption and standard of values is
now one of the foremost issues in the
minds of the voteis of Nebraska, and
that the change from the double tothe
single standard is, lias been, and will
continue to be, until reversed, a
grevious wrong to the people of the
United States and particularity to the
people of Nebraska: and believing that
nine tenths of the democrats of Ne
braska so feel, and that they have not
always been fairly lepiesented on the
subject by the democratic conventions
of Nebraska; and believing that the
time has come when the welfare of the
party in this state imperatively de
mands a plain, unequivocal statement
of the party on that subject
Therefore, we the undersigned dem -
ocrats of Nebraska, for the puipose of
propagating the double standard doc
trine in the democratic party and en ¬
abling the masses of the democratic
party in this state to obtain the fairest
expression of their views on that sub
ject in the conventions of the future.
do hereby call a state conference of
free silver democrats to tie held at Om
aha, commencing at two o'clock in the
afternoon of Thursday, .1 one 21st, IS1'!.
at which conference will be organized
a "Nebraska Democratic Free Coinage
Sentim knt among democrats in Ne
braska on the silver question is evi
dently changing toward the free silver
side. Numerous letters have been re
ceived this spring by Congressman
Bryan, we are assured, from democrats
from various parts of the state, who
last year were opposed to free silver,
and some of them from men who were
delegates to the state convention, an
nouncing their change of heart. One
of them, as a sample, writes, in sub
stance: "It is said 'an honest confes
sion is good for the soul.' 1 desire to
make one. I have been a resilient of
this county the past eleven years, and
have always been in the ranks lighting
for straight democracy. Have headed
the delegation from this county the
past three years, and have been
aoainst free silver, aoainst Wiu.J.
Bryun and kok anything the ringsters
said should go. During these years I
had all the work I could do in my busi
ness, did very little reading or thinking
(politically) and let my friends do this
for me. The past year, being poor for
men, I have improved the oppor tunity
in reading and thinking for my
self, and I hud 1 have been wrong,
both as to free silver and the attitude
I have assumed toward you. If my
labor, influence and vote in the past has
counted for anything aoainst free sil
ver, I now promise to work to double it
kok free silver," etc. And he promises
to make his influence felt in the com
ing state campaign.
Thk democrats of Cass county shouhl
not be behind those of her sister coun
ties in taking an interest in the coming
conference of free silver democrats
The committee on the choice of dele'
gates should see that the best and most
representative men throughout the
county are named, and efforts should
be set on foot at once to organize free
silver clubs in every precinct in the
county. Those who were not for free
silver a year ago should havenohesi-
tariCy in taking a stand on that plat-!
form today. The history of this year ;
of depression i proof of the necessity
JiEPIblicans are denouncing the'
democratic coming conference of free
silver democrats as a tiling to 1
dreaded, and have not been slow to st e
that unless they can head it off or fore- '
stall its work it means disaster to their ;
party of fale pretenses this ftll. j
Hence statements have been put out in
advance of the meeting of their league '
of clubs that the leaders are prepared!
to take an attitude of friendship to-
ward the whit metal. The public ;
knows, however, that whatever de
claration they might make they dare
not and will not condemn the course of
republican representatives and sena
tors in congress against free coinage
at the present ratio. The fact is if tli j
republicans have become converted ti
free silver it is a sort of death bed re
pentance. All three Nebraska
republicans in the house, and
Senator M inderson voted to repeal
the purchasing clause or the Sherman
act, and not a republican in the state
has ever denounced them for it.

A correspondent living at Bethle
hem, just across the river from this
city, writes tothe l'acilic lunctioii Ite
coider as follows:
"It is understood by good authmity
that the citizens of I'lattsinuiith aie
trying their utmost to slop the people
from the Iowa side of the river trad
ing or transacting business of any
kind. It setms that a good many false
statements have been made to the
people at lMattsmouth regarding the
small pox and that Bethlehem was
over run with the dreadful disease.
We hope these loose-minded meddlers
w ill tepoit the truth to the merchants
of Hattsmouth as we don't care about
being forced to other places to do our
ti a ling as lMattsmouth is onrneaipst
and best point. 1'al'ehood alter false
hood has been told wl en the truth
would have answ ered better.'
The Bethlehem correspondent evi
dently has a wrong impression of the
matter. The lMattsmouth merchants
and in fact all people here, were at
tirst a triile fearful that the small pox
pest would spread to this city, but the
speedy action taken by the authoiities
over at Bethlehem in isolating the
patients and in taking e ery precaut ion
in preentine the diseae from spiead
imr. naturally allaved the tears of our
people on this side of the river.
lMattsmouth merchants are peifectly
w illing for the residents of Bethlehem
to come here to trade.
There is more catauh in this vrv
tion of thf country than all other dis
eases put together, and until the last
few years was supposed to be incoi a
ble. For a great many years doctois
pronounced it a local disease, and pre
scribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treat
ment, pronounced it incurable. Science
has proven cat an h to lie a constitu
tional disease ami therefore requires
constitutional treatmert. Hall's ca-
tanh cure, itianufactu.nl by 1 . .1 .

is taken internally in doses from ten
drops to a teaspoonf ul. It acts directly
