Official County Paper.
And now for the organization of free
silver clubs in every precinct in the
Tiikiik i3 no mistaking it the dem
ocrats of Nebraska want free silver.
Thursday's convention with its mon
ster turn out and unbounded enthus
iasm demonstrated toplainly how they
feel on the question.
Ti'ik ovation given Congressman
liryan at Omaha Thursday showed
rather conclusively w'jo is the most
popular man with the Nebraska demo
cracy. The man who tells you that
llryan's "influence is on the wane" is
a great big chump.
Tks to one that the recent attacks of
the Chicago Herald upon Congressman
liryan are instigated by Secretary Mor
ton. The Ilearld boasts of being a
true-blue democratic organ, but in its
thrusts at Mr. Urjan it proves itself a
traitor to the party.
All France is aroused at the brutal
killing of President Carnot and the
stamping out of anarchy will doubtless
be the result. The French people are
easy to excite and their wrath in this
case is intensively righteous. Down
with anarchy will be the patriotic
Frenchman's motto hereafter.
Tiikkk is a high protective tariff on
the material turned out of the factory
owned by Andrew Carnegie. Carnegie
is reputed to be worth $30,000,000.
His workmen, for the benefit of whom
this tarilT ia alleged to Le imposed, are
living from hand to mouth. It is
claimed that the tariff is imposed to
make up the difference in the cost of
labor. How much of it has gone to
Carnegie's workmen ?
The McKinley bill taxes coal
seventy-Gve cents a ton to cover the
difference between foreign and home
wages, but the operators of Ohio, In
diana, Illinois and western Penn
sylvania have just consented to pay
their miners on the basis of sixty cents
a ton as a special favor. From which
"wo are probably to infer that the pau
per foreign coc-il miner pays hia em

A Cl'CKOO ORGAN ON ltltYAN.
Omaha World Herald.
The Chicago Herald of Monday
printed an editorial upon Congressman
liryan which contained almost as many
untruths and misstatements as it did
sentences. The burden of its whine
was that he favored free silver. One
paragraph of the screed will be sufficient
to illustrate the tenor of the whole:
Mr. liryan gave it out himself some
time ago that he should not be a candi
date for another term irr congress, and
that he should cease to be a democrat
"on account of the silver question." It
is easy enougn 10 see wny me young
(iratiirlpul rvrlnne of the Platte vallev
concluded he would not go to congress
again. In 18IK) he was elected overhis
republican opponent by 3,7KJ majority.
In thn errant, lanclnliiln VAAr for
other democratic candidates, his ma-
oritv was 140. He lost 0.477 of his
majority in two years. His disgust for
a congressional career is explained.
Merely challenging the statement
that Mr. liryan ever said "that he
should cease to be a democrat" the
World-Herald calls the Chicago paper's
attention to the mis-statement concern
ing his majorities. Mr. liryan did not
run in the same district in 1892 that he
did in 1W0. The democratic county of
Douglas, which had given him over
5,000 of his majority in 180, had been
taken from his district. In view of
the fact. too. that he ran in a presiden
tial year in a district normally repub
lican, and that it gave a decided repub
lican majority on the state ticket, Mr.
Uryan's race in 185)2 was remarkably
The Herald cannot deprecate Mr.
Uryan's popularity or vote-getting
qualities. He is the strongest man be
fore the people that there is in Ne
braska a statement which will receive
demonstration whenever the oppor
tunitv is offered.
The Herald's attack upon Mr. liryan
is as uncalled for as it is vicious and
unjust. No man ever HtoodiD congress
who waa more bravely honest and true
to his convictions than Mr. Bryan.
Washington, D. C, June 22,18'J4.
It is one of the weaknesses of human
nature to complain of the present and
look with favor upon the achievements
of the past, by comparison. Thus I,
in common with other anti-protection-
sts, have been disparaging the work
of the senate on the Wilson bill, and
almost wishing the senate were sent to
the eternal "definition bow-wows" for
the action of some of its members in
plowing with the protection heifer."
On more calm reflection, however, one
must confess that, by comparison with
the McKinley monstrosity, the senate
bill, which is now nearly enough com
pleted to allow one to judge of its ulti
mate character, is a big step in the
right direction. In fact, the rates of
the proposed measure are fully fifty per
cent lower than thoee of the McKinley
act; so that while we are abusing the
senate because of the work of a few
'herrings," we must not forget that
even were that work made final by its
adoption by the house, the country
would even then be relieved from many
millions of unjust, unrighteous and un
necessary taxation, and the burdens erf
the farmer and laborer lessened to that
extent. For instance, the bill has
made lumber free including "rough
and dressed' thanks to Senator A I
len's persistence and the willingness of
the democrats to help them. This item
alor.e, it is confidently believed, will
save to the nome builders ana city
builders of Nebraska more than a mil
lion dollars a year in the cost of their
umber and building materials. On
clothing and woolen goods the rate is
reduced an averape of almost one-half,
so that the new rate will save at least
five million dollars a year to Ne
braskans. If one were to go through
the schedules and make a fair estimate,
based upon the difference in the rates
of the senate bill and those of the Mc
Kinley bill, taking the amount of goods
and merchandise used by the people
of Nebraska, I have not the least
doubt but that the senate bill will af
ford a saving of fifty million dol-
ars a year. Think you this is not
something worth lighting for?
Tint just watch, and see if those rates
are not measurably cut down still
ower by the conference committee !
These are times of political formative
conditions and we know not what are
to be the issues of the coming cam
paign. Just look over the field a little.
few weeks ago Senator Lodge plead
for a greater use of silver and hinted at
reprisal against England to obtain it.
This idea Uo?s Heed improved upon in
an interview published in an English
paper threatening an embargo on
English imports into America unless
England were to agree to adopt bimetal
lism. Later on came a remarkable
statement by A. L. Conger of Ohio, in
which he deserts McKinleyism, says
the party has won its last battle on
that line of protective tariffs, and wants
the McKinley bill "revised upon the
lines mapped out by James G. Blaine."
At present," he continues, "the re
publican party is out and the demo
crats are in. They have threatened to
give us free trade. We want to get
back into power, and we want to get it
upon a line of policy that will continue
us in success when we do get m."
Again he says: "We meant in our na
tional platform of 1880, or at least it
was the interpretation put on it by the
party, that we had now reached a point
in our history when we could afford to
make reductions in the tariff. This
was so stated by our speakers on the
stump and by the republican press, but
when we put forth the McKinley bill
we violated the pledges of the party,
increased duties, then went forth to
battle upon the proposition, and were
beaten. ' Now, it would simply be
political suicide to start out upon that
proposition in 18'.)G."
Now, that is what I call a bugle blast
to call the party to a new alignment,
and is recognized as a distinct repudia
tion of McKinley in his own state, and
indicates that harmony is lacking there
upon principle, or upon material lines
On the democratic side the sky, long
dark and lowering, shows signs of
clearing up. Gov. Stone of Missouri,
who possesses the elements of a born
leader, has recently given expression
to views that indicate progress on our
side of the political fence. He said:
"The silver sentiment is growing. On
assuming the chair at the Kansas City
convention, I urged the adoption of a
bold declaration in favor of free silver
coinage and prophesied that such a de
claration would bring many other
states into line. And now behold what
has happened almost in a day. Even
republican conventions are falling into
line. &trk this prediction, that in 1890
every political party will declare for
free silver. The republicans are al
ready preparing to take the lead.
Great Caesar ! How blind are those
who represent the democratic party at
Washington ! by, they have almost
thrown away the grandest opportunity
a party ever had.
"Atter the democratic party had for
twenty jears opposed the republican
policy f silver demonetization, our
president and a subservient congress
abuse our first opportunity to redeem
our pledges by violating them. And if
any tariff law is passed at all it will
clearlv be alone protection lines. It is
monstrous ! The republicans arequick
to see Mr. Cleveland's mistake on sil
ver, and are preparing to profit by it.
They mean to abandon their old posi
tion, leave Cleveland in possession, and
go forth clamoring against him and in
favor of undoing their own work. And
still our wise leaders at Washington
are quiescent while the months are
slippinc away. The stupidity of these
people is enough to provoke the saints."
But there is no evidence of wi?dom
on the part of the democrats here in
congress on these lines. They are ap
parently at sea, aDd most of the mem
bers lack force to act on their own
lines of conviction. A few more men
with the courage of Byran would be
able to change the whole gift of affairs.
I notice, by the way, a3 a good many
others have, that Mr. Morton, the
secretary of agriculture, has gone to
writing editorials for the national
bank organ at Chicago the Herald
in an effort to bring ridicule upon Mr.
Bryan and the democratic silver con
ference at Omaha. The article in the
Herald of the 18th and l'.Hh bear his
ear-marks most unmistakably. They
indicate a deep-seated jealousy on his
part against the man who so com
pletely won from him the leadership
of the democrats of Nebraska.
Hidicule has always been a favorite
weapon with him, but the use he has
made of it in this case lias been so
mingled with malice and ill-temper
that it lost its charm and fell short of
The prediction made months ago by
Mr. Talbott, clerk of the ways and
means committee, that the senate
woulil pass the tariff t ill about July 1,
seems now very likely of fulfillment.
Among the facts elicited by the
"senate committee investigating the
sugar trust business, was a statement
how the 6ugnr schedule was changed
in the interest of the trust. He stated
that Senators Gorman, Brice, Hill,
Murphy, Smith a:id Mcl'herson forced
themselves upon the finance committee
and demanded changes in the bill to
suit "the conservatives," and at their
solicitation the rates were changed.
That testimony tells the story, and
shows who are the corruptionists on
the democratic side. They should be
put on black lists in every democratic
newspaper in their state, and hounded
out of public life. C. W. S.
A Skeleton Discovered
And, upon further examination, a
whole lot of Skeletons turn up at
Wescott's. All sizes and colors of
skeletons to suit the breathless, per
spiring crowd, in shape of Alpacas,
Mohair, Secillian, Drap d' ete and
other skeleton coats and vests. They
are the best assorted lot of skeletons
you ever met on a hot day. The wind
blows rightthrough them, and before
you are a skeleton yourself you had
better snap onto a cool, handsome
skeleton at Wescott's. Skeletons
don't cost much this year, either.
Seems to be a skeleton year. But
Wescott is right "in the swim" with
the skeletons and all kinds of de
pendable clothing for the male per
suasion. By the way, we are hand
ing out straw hats at too low a price
to name good time to get one.
Everything goes at Wescott's at one
price and "No Monkey Business."

NEW Cl'KK FOIl CONSUMPTION.
The furore of excitement which was
occasioned hy the exaggerated uc
couuts of the potency of Dr. Koch's
lymph to destroy the germs of tuber
culosis seems in a fair way to be
paralleled by reason of the announce
ment of a new discovery, made by an
eminent French scientist, which, it is
claimed, will do all that Koch's over
praised remedy failed to accomplish.
Dr. de Backer, the discoverer of the
new cure for consumption, is a young
Frenchman who has Already achieved
eminence by reason of his chemical
researches. Unlike Prof. Koch, who
kept the formula of his lymph a secret,
de Backer conforms to the ethics of
the medical profession and gives to the
scientific world the components and
processes employed in the manufacture
of backerine, as he calls the new
The basic principle of backerine is a
live beer yeast, which must be chemi
cally pure and free from all bacterial
taint, as it is injected subcutaneously
in practice. To keep it thus pure it is
stored in a siphon with a hypodermic
needle attachment, the needle being
used for piercing the skin over the vein
into which it is desired to introduce
the fluid. The principle of action is
precisely that which, differently ap
plied, results in death when the poison
of a rattlesnake is introduced into the
blood of a mammal through the deli
cate, needle-like lube of the reptile's
poison fangs. That is, the live-yeast
ferment causes corpuscular changes
immediately upon contact with the
blood, which manifest themselves in an
instantaneous inflammation which
starts around the wound made by the
needle and spreads. The chemical
changes effected in the blood is said to
mean the instant death of the tuber
culous bacilli, upon which the yeast
acts as efficaciously as does carbolic
acid on other forms of germ life.
Before the last medical congress held
at Rome, Dr. de Backer explained his
discovery and its principles very fully.
He claims in a year's practice to have
cured by its use 90 per cent of cases of
consumption in the first stages and 65
per cent of the second-stage cases upon
which he experimented. In cases
which have reached the tertiary, or
last, stage he does not claim efficacy for
If Dr. de Backer's discovery will do
one-half of what he claims for it and
of what he appears to have demon
strated to the satisfaction Oi the medi
cal savants in attendance upon the
congress at Kome, it is indeed a god send
to suffering humanity. Its
efficacy should be tested by American
physicians, which may be done with
perfect safety, as the remedy is fraught
with no danger to any form of lite ex
cept the bacillus tuberculosis.

There ia more catarrh in this sec

eases put together, and until the last
few years was supposed to bo incura
ble. For a great many years doctors
pronounced it a local disease, and re
scribed local remedies, and by con
stantly failing to cure with local treat
ment, pronounced it incurable. Science
has proven catarrh to be a constitu
tional disease arid therefore requires
constitutional treatment. Hall's ca
