PERSONAL, POLITICAL AND PERTINEST.
Monday night, when the council was
moralizing the city, it neglected one
very important bit of reform that of
suppressing the "white pants" fad.
The city's reformation will never be
complete until this is done.
It is respectfully requested that in
the line of further reformation, the
council banish the Sunday newsboy
from our streets.
It will now be in order for the hon
orable mayor and city council to adver
tise for bids for the construction of a
high board fence to surround the city,
and warrant to keep any person want
ing to spend money here, out of the
city's sacred limits.
David Brown yesterday packed a
choice box of peaches from his farm
south of the city, and sent them to
his old friend J. Sterling Morton, to
show him what a Nebraska Quaker
can do a year like this in growing
fruit. They were as fine as any
peaches that have ever been raised in
this state. Nebraska City News.
A rumor was current on the streets
today that some one shot three times
at Hon. John C. Watson while at his
home last evening. The report was
made from the whole cloth and had not
the least ground for its origin. Ne

A heavy flow of salt water was
struck last Friday at a depth of 215

A Beatrice girl read

by hustling like a house afire for three
weeks she managed to unload the stuff
The "safety" came in an envelope,
and was one of these brass pins, horse

We often hear people telling how we
should "stand up for Nebraska," but
Nebraska does not need anyone to
stand up for her this year, as the state
is in such a healthy and prosperous
condition that she can stand up for
herself. Platte Center Signal.

"Up to the present time over 420,
000,000 silver dollars nave been coined,
nearly all of which han been coined
since the 'crime of 1873' and all of
which is a legal tender for debt, or
'redemption money,' as the silver theo
rists call it. It is not only nonsense
but dishonest to represent silver as
having been destroyed as primary
money. The silver dollars In current
use today stand exactly on an even
footing with gold as a redemption
money." N. Y. Adverat.
It is such statements as the above
upon which the people of the east are
fed to create prejudice against free
coinage. The fact is, under the policy
set out by Foster and Harrison, and
continued under Carlisle and Cleve
land, not a dollar of silver has or can
be used as redemption money. Silver
is actually treated as token, or non
legal tender money, and is not used to
redeem even the silver certificates re
turned by the gold-grabbing usurers.
While the law gives the secretary the
right to use it as such and to redeem
all paper issues with silver dollars.
the secretary and the president are so
completely subjected to the' interests
and control of the gold-grabbers that
they are afraid to use the option given
them by the Sherman law of 1890.
Cringing like slaves before their Wall
street masters, they have brought upon
the country all the disaster and ruin
that has run riot since the panic of
1893, and there is no hope of bettering
matters except, by the election of a
free coinage president and congress
On this sime subject the Nebraska
City News says:
'J. Sterling Morton, in auswer to a
farmer who wrote demanding the 'res
toration to its rights of the white
metal' made reply: "What rights is
S'lver deprived of at present? On the
12th day of June. 1895, in the treasury
of the United States there are 347,346,
422 standard silver dollars. Are they
not a legal tender for all debts, public
and private? What more rights would
the same number of gold dollars have.
The able secretary of agriculture
could improve his reputation for can
dor, if not for truth, by telling the
whole truth. While nearly all of the
silver dollars in the treasury are kept
there to redeem silver certificates and
treasury notes, their right to be used
for redemption purposes is limited by
the rule adopted by the secretary to
use only gold for such purposes. The
same number or gold dollars, under
this treasury ruling has the right of
ultimate redemption inonej. The sil
ver dollars have not. Mr. Morton
knows this, why is he not frank enough
to tell his farmer i riend so?
Marvin, postmaster at Beatrice,
imagines that to earn his salary and
hold his place he must villify, abuse
and lie about Mr. Hryan. His thirty
pieces are a heavy load for Mr. Marvin
to carry. .
Tdere is talk of nominating Vice
President Stevenson on a free silver
platform. Such a nomination would
be in the line of promotion, but when
he comes out squarely for bimetallism
it will be time enough to talk of him.

have a cinch on the next presidency,
but just let them perpetrate auother

The Kansas state board of charities
is in a bad way, even if it is still in ex
istence. The governor removed Mrs
Lease, on the demand of the two other
members of the board. She contested
his power of removal in the courts, but
be was sustained, and her dismissal is
confirmed. About the san.e time the
commission appointed at her instiga-
ion to investigate the other members
of the board on charges of boodling
convicted them on the testimony, and
have so reported to the governor. Mrs.
Lease claims that she is slightly ahead,
as her removal was not based on ac
cusations of dishonesty.
There is a good deal of talk on the
street and in high circles of authority
to the effect that the council made a
serious mistake in the passage of its
take-down-the screens resolution Mon
day night, and the probabilities are it
will be rescinded. It is represented
that a number of the saloons are hang
ing onto their business simply by their
teeth any how, and this resolution, in
dicating a public policy of restriction
and opposition is likely to close some
of them up a fact which would prove
undesirable and detrimental to the
revenues oc tne city ana tne puuuc
schools. It is held that if the saloons
were prosperous it would be well
enough to make them rigidly comply
with the law, but until then this jump
ing onto them has the appearance of
"The faith of the advocate of a sin
gle gold standard is composed of one
truth and one pernicious error. That
coined standard dollars should be of
equal legal value is true, but that the
metal in them must be of equal bullion
value is a fallacy so contrary to our
common sense and experience that it
cannot be much aided by prophecy.
Let us, as bimetallists, remember that
we are Americans, citizens of the great
republic, dealing calmly and deliber
ately with. our own highest interests.
Let us take counsel of faith and hope.
Let us go forth with manly hearts,
without fear, believing in all confi
dence that the silver and gold dollar of
our mints, the money of the past
sound, tried and true, shall also be
and remain the uionev of the future."
In his recent 4th of July letter Pres
inent Cleveland talks solemnly about
the wrong of making "insidious ap
peals to popular ptssion and preju
dice." He evidently distrusts the good
sense of the people the masses and
has no confidence in their ability to
discover and discount demagogy.
When a man loses confidence in the in
telligence of his fellow men it is pret
ty good evidence lhac he has gone
wrong, and is trying to carry out plans
that are derogatoiy to the common
good. The fact is the president has
set up, like the childien of Israel in
the wilderness, a golden calf, or a god
of gold, which he is worshiping instead
og the true God, and he is afraid the
masses will follow their better sense
of right and believe those who teach
bimetallism. Such men as Jefferson,
Jackson and Lincolu never lost faith
in the good sense of the masses. They
had au abiding faith in the honesty
and patriotism of the people. It is
only the usurers that distrust the
masses. Well knowing that their bus
iness is accursed of liod and is a rob
bery of honest toil, they constantly
fear that it may be overthrown. Since
Mr. Cleveland has become rich he has
lost faith in humanity.
The Venezuelan Boundary.
With the return of Lord Salisbury to
power some fresh interest is awakened
in the matter of the boundary between
Venezuela and British Guiana. With
no justification but that of greater
power the British have little by little
moved the boundary line farther north
on their maps, and have thus appro
priated from helpless little Venezuela
a large extent of territory exceedingly
rich in natural resources. All effoits
to induce the British government to
submit the dispute to arbitration have
been unavailing. The foreign policy
of Lord Salisbury in the past has not
been such that the friends of Venezuela
and of fair play expect much at his
hands today. In 1890 Venezuelan am
bassadors approached him on the sub
ject and his reply was that England
would compromise on a stated bound
arywhich was in fact a line even fur
ther north than that drawn by Lord
Roseberry in 1S86
