The Situation at the Penitentiary.
The poor old Journal still keeps
up the cry of Gov. Holcomb and
VVarden Leidigh injuring the state
by standing guard over that $ioo,
ooo penitentiary appropriation,
from the fact that so many of the
prisoners are idle. The republican
gang would not wrong the state by
taking 40 cents per capita for main
taining the prisoners when it is now
being done at half that figure? Ob,
no! Let the board have some re
gard for law and economy and as
sist the proper authorities in the
management of the penitentiary,
instead of robbing the state. The
warden has arrangements perfected
whereby the available labor at the
pen can be leased at higher figures
than the Russell-Churchill combine
is offering to lease it for. Not only
that; the state now has a contract
with one manufacturer at 45 cents
per day for about thirty men. The
combine has offered to make a new
deal with this contractor.furnishing
him men at 30 cents per day.
This is done in hopes to induce
this contractor to annul his con
tract if possible and .thus deprive
the warden of any funds from this
source. The combine stands in
the way of leasing the labor of the
convicts and is thus robbing the
state of $2,500 per montUor nearly.
The governor and the warden are
using every honorable means to
protect the state; the combine is
using every dishonorable means to
do the reverse. This is the situa
tion in a nut shell.
False as Usual.
It's a common remark, 'lf you see it
in the Journal, it's a lie." This was
fully verilied this week when that sheet
came out with the so-called startling
announcement that Fred Miller had
paid James Kelley 81.000 to withdraw
as the democratic candidate for sheriff.
Citizen acquainted with these gentlemen
will not question the following state
ment as published in Thursday's Jour
1, James Kelly, wit hdraw of my own
accord for the reason that I realized that
the chances of success were against me,
and I could not a (l ord to expuul any
money in what at the outset looked like
a losing light. I have lived in Lincoln
for eighteen years and I defy any man
to hliow that I have ever an a private
citizen or ollicer taken one cent in
any corrupt transaction.
And 1, Fied A. Miller, tdale that the
declination of Jamea Kelly was an far
as 1 kii-Mv his own voluntary ai t, and
was without any procurement of mine
and not one, cent wm paid directly or

THE U. S. SENATE,
Bright Eyes Writes of Men who
Will Standby the People.
Incidents and Graphic Pon Pictures
of Some of the Senators Not
Contrary to the belief, which is quite
common among populists and which
seems to be derived from reading social
istic doctiue3 from irresponsible papers
styling themselves populistic, the en
tire body of the senate does not consist
of plutocratic thieves and corporation
sharks. There are in the senate some
as good, honorable and patriotic men as
have ever been known in that boly
from revolutionary times down to the
present. In the general convulsion and
breaking up of parties, which will take
place during this year in connection
with, and preceding the coming presi
dential election, these men will emerge
from the furnace tested and tried and
as bright as silver, with the refuse
burned away so that all may see for
themselves the qualities of which they
I have had rare opportunities during
the past two years of observ ing for my
self the course pursued by many of
these senators and it has been an inter
esting study, as all studies from active
human life are, and much more so than
studies from books.
Durln the past year the congressional
representatives of the the various po
litical parties have been slowly disinte
grating, evolving and dividing them
selves from their own bodies politic, and
the dissolving question has been the
money question. In the school of eco
nomics it is beginning to be scientifically
understood that the money question
represents the wefare of the people,
physical, intellectual, moral and spiri
tual. The money question then finally re
solves itself into a question of, for the
people or against the people; for the
welfareof the uiany.or forthe welfareof
the moneyed few, who, to use an ex
pressive American phrase, want to
"hog everything In sight."
In enumerating and sightly sketch
ing the senators who are likely to stand
by the people when the final test conies
at the presidential election of the com
ing year, I will give the names only of
the populists, who, it goes without say
ing will be true, because they stood for
principles rather than for oifice. These
are Win. V. Allen of Nebraska, Kyle of
South Dakota, William A. 1'effer of
Kansas and Marion llutler of South
John P. Jones and William M. Stew
art both of Nevada, left the republican
party and joined the populists during
the silver session when they found, as
shown from repeated votes, that the re
publican party, with Cleveland and
Sherman as its leaders would bang on
the skirts of the moneyed few, and
stand up for the privileges of million
aires, railroad corporations and monopo
lies rather than for the people.
John P.Jones has the head and calm
peaceful face of a philospher, and is
one in reality. He is nothing of a poli
tician and concerns himself little about
politics, hardly ever troubling himself
to make a speech, but when he does
speak, and it is usually on the principles
regulating money, the whole senate pays
turn the honor of clone and undivided
attention even though the speech nit y
occupy several hours of several consecu
tive days. Friends and ojm m tits alike

synonymous. He was the first senator
during the silver session who gave pub
lic voice to the almost universal indig
nation ut the arbitrary acts of Cleveland
toward the legislative department, and
his shanieles use of patronage 111 orde
to defeat or forward the passage of
bills on the money question.
Conventional senators who hardly
dared call their souls their own, gasped
at the audacity of the brave and fearless
"Silver Knight as fiesloiid alone sound
ing forth denunciations and charges
against the president of the United
States, The sight was worth seeing.
Senator Stewart was born in Xew
York in 1H27. He was in Vale College
when, attracted by the gold discoveries
in California, he went to San Francisco
in I8o0. He tells with pride of how he
engaged in mining with pick and shovel.
I n 18H0 ho went to Nevada where he
became interested in the development
of the Coinstock lade. At the present
time he has no financial interest in any
silver mines, his heartfelt interest in
silver being due to his interest in the
welfare of the people in his state
and of the people at large. His term
of service expires in lS'.l.
Henry M. Teller of Colorado aligned
himself with what are now called the
silver reputiicans of his party and dur
ing the last two sessions became noted
as the leader of that wing of his party,
He Is a plain blunt man and apparently
a man of the people, and has repeatedly
declared, both in public and private,
that when the time conies, if the republi
can convention nominates a gold bug
president, he will withdraw from that
party and vote for any presidential
candidate who is for free silver no mat
ter by what party. It is such a foregone
conclusion that the republican party
will put up a gold bug nominee, that
one only wonders why Teller does not
leave his party now and fight it with all
his might and main politically while
there is still a chance to do something
effective, rather than wait till the last
No one who ever heard Teller's im
passioned appeals in the last two ses
sious on behalf of the people can ever
forget them, and one cannot help hav
ing strong hopes of the man as a future
leader of the people, when one recent
bers how he stood up for the rights of
the people in the very faces of the old
leaders of his party, and how he charged
the head of his own party, Sherman,
with untruthfulness on the lloor of the
The only dissatisfaction that could be
felt during his whole jonrse in the, last
two sessions was when at the close .of
the last session, he yielded to the; im
portunities of his colleague Wolcott and
voted for the resolution forth appoint
ment of a $1,000,000 commission, by the
president to attend an international con
ference in Europe.
Imagine Cleveland, the gold bug pre6i
dent sending commissioners to attend
an international conference if it was
likelp to report favorably for silver!
Wolcot gracefully waved his right as
member of the commission m favor of
Teller! Ahem, l.ut then one can't ex
pect perfection in such a world as this
Senator Teller was born in New York
in 18:t0; moved to Colorado in ISfil, and
his present term of otliue expires in 1S97.
He was lirst elected to the senate On
Colorado's admission as a stateand was
seeretaiy of the Interior under President
Arthur's ud ministration.
Kdward Oliver Wolcott, of Colorado,
the colleague of Senator Teller is also a
silver republican. Ha is a fiery and en
thusiastic speaker and he did declare
111 the last M'ssioi. that he would devote
his life to the service of silver, but -alas!
must there always boa "but"?

Of the silver democrats, some of
these who made the most noiseand pro
fessed the greatest regard for the wel
fare of the people, among whom were
Harris of Tennessee, Jones of Arkansas
and Turpie of Indiana, have since de
clared, when asked the question as to
what they would do if the democratic
convention failed to nominate a silver
president, that in that case they would
have to vote for a gold bug president,
so that we will consider them out of
the question in the light for the people.
Among those who will stand true, we
will class Joseph C. S. iilackburn of
Kentucky, that Fiery southernor who
has just been distinguishing himself in
the eyes of the nation, by the heroic
and single hand to hand fight with the
leaders of his own party in his statu for
the rights of the people. Whether suc
cessful or not, he has won the admira
tion and esteem of all lovers of liberty.
Senator Ulackburn was born in Ken
tucky in 1S:IS; served several terms in
the house before his election in the sen
ate and Lis present term expires March
Another whose instinct will lead him
to stand by ' the people when the iinal
test comes, is that "grandest Koman
of them all" John T. Morgan of Ala
bama. He has a worldwide repute as a
statesman and his attention has been
directed mostly to international ques
tions, having several times been selected
as delegate to represent the United
States when questions of international
import arose in Europe. His vote was
ever on tne side of the people whenever
the money question was up for discus
sion, and the legal points he nudi as to
rights of silver to free coinage equally
with gold made a decided impression
on the whole senate which is composed
almost entirely of lawyers. Tne most
decided hit made by any one during the
session and which created laghter where
ever it was mentioned, was made in
what is called his "cuckoo speech," in
which, alluding to the subservient
obedience of the gold bug republicans
and democrats to Cleveland's com
mands, he said, "The trumpet had
sounded, the forces were marshalled,
the clock had struck at the White House,
and the cuckoos here ail put their heads
out of the boxes and responded to in-.,
form us of the lime of day."
Senator Morgan was born in Tennes
see inlH21; moved to Alabama when
nine years old, has served live terms in
the senate, has just been re elected and
his terra of service will expire in 1901.
