knowledge, understand how state

For instance, you have a claim

vices rendered. With your vouch
er properly signed up you go to
the auditor and get a state warrant.
When presented to the treasurer
he places his signature upon it and
informs you that he has no money
to pay it wtih but yon can probably
get it cashed in Lincoln by dis
counting it one, two, three or five
per cent, on take it to. certain
banks or to the lieutenant governor
who shaves it as suits him best and
gives jou the cash. The warrant
is then taken to the treasury and
registered, and draws 7 per cent
interest until redeemed.
When presented to the treasury
for payment the owner of the war
rant is informed that the county
assessments have not been paid in
and be has ho money to cash the
warrants yet it is asserted by men
who profess to know that the treas
urer is furnishing stale money to
shave warrants with, getting a
share in the profits and in the in

Two per cent shaved from $200,
000 in warrants is a snug little
sum to take from the pockets of
merc hants and laborers who serve
the state and add to this 7 per cent
interest for two, four or six months
and the parties tothedeal are doing
a lucrative business at the people's
expense. Is it any wonder the Did

the state machine which lias be

IflE KODEHS TRAMP.
Time was when to be a trarnp was
considered a sin and a disgrace.
When the epidemic first struck the
country away back in the Go's it
was largely the restless, roving in
temperate class w ho took to tramp
ing and theie was little excuse or
sympathy for them. Following
the great financial depression ot
'73, when factories were closed,
merchants driven to the wall and
the labor market practically closed
to willing hands the list was ex
tended and honest tradesmen,
sturdy yeomen and hitherto suc
cessful merchants joined the ranks
which have gradually increased in
numbers for the past twenty years.
But during the financial d pression
from iSo'uptothe present time
the number has increased so steadi
ly and so rapidly that it has ceased
to be a matter of much comment.
It takes in such a varried class of
citizens merchants, lawyers, doc
tors, preachers, tradesmen and
farmers that to be a tramp now
has lost its odium. It is sech a
common thing now days for the
sherilf to t'i'n the key against the
industrious merchant or frugal
tradesman because of lack of (him
ness and lack of work that it has
become seen reaper t; ble to be
classed as a trump. H i -iuli a

and to build up a moneyed oligarchy
that is putting the sheriff on their
track and making homeless tramps
and paupers of honest, industrious
men. Will they continue this
policy; will the practical, sensible
business and laboring man con
tinue to vote in power the gang that
has wrought so much disaster until
the whole country goes down in
the sea of bankruptcy?

Gold standard or "over produc
tion" has placed the price of corn
at 11 to 15 cents in Nebraska, and
this after two or three failures of
crops. How is the farmer to pay
his taxes, interest, store bills and

What did the people of Lincoln
gain by electing a liberal republi
can city government las; spring?
The city is overrun with cjuestion
ablc characters, officers have been
hauleel out of bawdy horses in a
drunken maudlin state, councilmen
been found in colored dens of
vice, the treasury looted by robber
contracts and vice and crime have
had their own way. The masses
of the republican party are decent,
respectable people and we doubt if
they will endorse such a conduct of
affairs by their vote this fall.
Thk people are mad. That wave
of prosperity which John Sherman
promised them would follow the
demonetization of silver has failed
to appear. ' They are poor and
in debt, and their business and
their homes going to the bow-wows
is it any woniler they are mad?
The republican and democratic
parties have been making promises
for years which they never fulfilled.
If you want to make the average
American citizen mad just lie to
him a few times and let him catch
you at it.
Wk are told by the plutocrats
tint the distress of the people can
not be relieved by legislation. If
this is trrue w hy do they want legis
lation? Why did they ask to be re
lieved from the income tax? Why
did they ask for the demonetiza
tion of silver? Vhy do they ask to
be fre e from taxation on their bonds?
Why do they, ask the exclusive
privilege of issuing paper money?
Why do they ask for franchises
that are worth millions of dollars?
why do tiny keep a horde of paid
lobbyists at our national and state
legislatures to intlut nee letfishtion?

up in one question. Whvdo thev

General Thayer's speech to the
voters of the Fourth ward Tuesday
night, is a moral curiosity, and is a
fit epitome of the conscience of a
political party hardened through
corruption and iniquity carried on
through a series of years of office
holding uninterrupted by the break
ing in of any other party, until
within the last few years the popu
lists succeeded in making a break
in the line.
According to Thayer'9 speech,
the cardinal doctrine of the republi
can party seems to be that a Ne
braska state official exists for the
sole -purpose of drawing a salary
and making as much money out of
the taxpayers as possible.
The question of serving the state
does not seem to be at all consid
ered. His chief grievance against Judge
Maxwell seems to be that alter
Judge Maxwell had received $ 70000
lor able service rendered to the state
the Judge had bolted the republi
can party, and had been guilty of
ingratitude, as though the members
of that party had paid Judge Max
well's salary out of their own pock
ets. The query comes in here, where,
in the republican scheme of things
do the people with their votes and
tax paying powers come in? The
people of the state evidently don't
exist from the repulican standpoint.
He says that "the republican who
votes against his ticket is a moral
What if the republican ticket is
composed of such men as Mosher,
Hill, Dorgan and others of that
ilk, of penitentiary defalcation anel
insane asylum "steals" fame.
He says "The nominees of onr
party have a moral right to demand
of every republican his vote."
Is that according to the princi
ple of "honor among thieve?"
But perhaps the funniest part of
Thayer's address was where he ap
pealed to voters to vote for Sam
Low because "Sam Low is a poor
No question of qualification for
service seems to fnter into Thayer's
mind. These are his literal words
"let Elias Baker step down and
out and let Sam Low a poor man,
step in". We remember in the
course of our experience a man
who was appointed superintend
ent of a certain instutition. He
was really half witted, and was re
moved for incaptcity. Those who
recommended his appointment
were asked why they did so.
The answer was "O, he was so
poor, and he was such a good Sun
day school teacher".
The really extraordinay part of
Thayer's speech is where he said
that "it was stated that E. Baker
has built a nice house this last
season, but he did not build it till
the last year of his term of office.
Now let Sam Low take the po
sition of district clerk anil I pledge
you my word he will build as good
a house the first year of his office
and I pledge you my word, also,
that before the end of his first term,
he will have built two houses as
good as Baker's. Give him a
Docs Thayer mean to say that
Sam Low's capacity for making
money out of his office will be trip
pie the capacity of Baker?
Thayer charges someol the best
men in the state with having bolted
the republican ticket because they
wanted more office. Might it not
U that these men bolted the ticket
because the consciences of these
men would not allow them lo af
hlhato with tin 11 who showed such
moral turpitude anil want of pub
