WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, '98
The republican papers deny there
has been any mismanagement of the
war department, but their news col
umns give the lie to their editorial
Neither Judge New.dl or any of
the republican papers of theebnnty
has denied that the laborers in Nswell
A Atwood'a stone quarry were com
pelled to go out on a strike in order to
obtain the same wages that other em
ployers were paying for the same work.
Neither have they denied that this
same Newell was one of the notorious
Dorgan gang and a chief beneficiary
of the infamous cell house steal. These
things are tacitly admitted, not be
cause they are true, but because they
can be proven.
A (iLANCE AT THE RECORDS
The republicans claim that they
have purified their party and that all of
the old gang has been "thrown down,'
yet in spite of these claims, their state
campaign is being managed by Schnei
der, Slaughter and Iledlund .who have
been identified with the old boodling
state house ring for such a length of
time that the memory of man runneth
not to the contrary, and right here in
this county they have nominated for
the state senate, Judge Newell who
was one of the leaders of the Dorgan
gang, and one of the chief beneficiaries
of that outfit's notorious cell-house
steal. If this shows any reform the
public in general would like to know
where it comes In.
In the 1,0 days from January 1,
1892, to December 31, 1894, there was
a daily average of 2,142 inmates in all
state penal and charitable institu
tions. The total cost for maintenance was
$1,297,644.08 or a daily expenditure of
This was a daily cost of 55 cents
for each inmate.
In the 700 days from January 1. 1895
to November 30, 1896, there was a daily
average of 2,534 inmates in these in
stitutions. The total cost for maintenance was
$793,332.13 a duly expenditure of
31,133.40 or 44 7 10 cents for each in
mate. The saving effected by Governor
Ilolcomb and his appointees is very ap
parent. ' As compared to republican extrav
agance, 392 inmates were maintained
without cast, and in addition $50.48
wai saved each day.
In the 517 days from November 30,
1896, to May 31, 1393, there was a daily
average of 2,437 inmates.
The total cost for maintenance was
$5o3,SS3.13, a daily expenditure of $1,
019.S9, or '41 8-10 cents for each in
mate. The saving effected by a complete
reform administration is still more
Thus, 295 inmates were maintained
without cost and $164-09 saved each
day, if we use republican management
as a standard. Comment would seem
to be unneccessary.
use its own judgement as to whether
or not Newell used his "pull."
Tun war department never thought
of providing hospital facilities at their
destinations for the sick soldiers who
were being returned to their own
states, until the Second Nebraska. boys
arrived in Omaha and were met at the
depot by ambulances provided by the
World-Herald and taken to hospitals
1 where accommodations bad been se
cured by the same enterprising paper.
The facts were wired to Senator Allen
who presented them to Secretary Alger.
The latter directed that a bill for the
expense should be sent to his depart
ment and immediately sent out orders
that all returning volunteers should be
given ambulance and hospital accom
modations at the end of their journeys.
Whether or not Mr. Alger would ever
have thought of this matter had it not
been for the World-Herald, of course
no one can tell.
Under twenty years of republican
rule the office of secretary of state cost
$12639.76 to maintain it. Under the
present secretary of state, W. F. Por
ter, the office has pr the first time in
its history been self-sustaining. There
is a moral here.
Sam At wood claims that his part
ner Judge Newell had nothing to do
with securing the appointment of
young Dan Atwood to a clerkship in
the quartermaster's department of the
army, and that the charge that he had
does the judge a great injustice. This
is in effect admitting that the appoint
ment was a bad one. The public can

I COMMENT AND OaiTICISM
A SA3IPLK CASE
The Plattsmouth Newt in its iepub
lican intensity, even defends the army
scandals ibat area disgrace to this
country and says the telling of them is
an injury to the papers. Tbe News
has heard a great deal about partisan
Ship but that. is going farther than we
ever dreamed of. Tbe management
of t ht army and navy should be in
vestigated thoroughly, and particular
ly in regard to thfe mismanagement of
the sick As a sample of bow some of
the boys were treated we will state
that au Otoe couiiiy boy, who is now
at hume on a furlough, was in the hos
pital three days without seeing k phy
sician or being piven any medicine.
On the evening of the third day one
of tbe hospital ibyeicians passed by
and looking at him said, "you area
pretty sick boy; you had better get out
of here." No medicine, no care and
cruel advice. Turn on the search
light. Nebraska' City News.
. SAME -OLD CRY.
American manufactured goods are
shipped to almost every civilized coun
try on the globe and eo.'d in those
countries cheaper than tbe home man
ufactured product and cheaper than
they are sold here at home, jet our
protectionist friends tell us that we
must have a high protective tariff to
protect our "infant industries" and
keep out ruinous foreign competition.
thibb's a difference.
Young men will not be ready to en
list in future wars unless tbey are as
sured that the government is not run
in the interest of syndicates. It is
one thing to die for one's country bat
quite another to lay down one's life
that tbe syndicates may flourish and
grow fat. Nebraska City News.
REPORT AGREED UPON.
Tbe commission which goes to take
charge of the evacuation of Cuba, it
has been intimated, goes with tbe in
tention of reporting the Cubans in
capable of self government. This
means that tbe administration is plan
ning to dodge the real and original
purpose of the war, tbe freedom of
Cuba as an independent government.
Tbe Cubans fought for their freedom
from Spain with too much persistency
and effect to not be able to govern
themselves if given a chance. It was
a very common ' opinion throughout
Europe that Americi was rot cupabe
of self ov-riiment at the cloe of the
revuliti totiitiy viai. Hut she proved
herself anipl) able to do so. Why not
give Cuba an opportunity to demon
strate her ability in that line? That
the people there are 111 a soiry condi
tion there is no question, but tbty
have been slaves. Give them the full
enjoyment f perfect freedom and
wait their development. Schujler
