THINGS THEY PROMISED.
NOT A PBOMISE KEPT OR A
John Sherman's Celebrated Speech
in the United States Senate.
Jiefore the election, announcements
were marte in the gold bug papers that
better times had come; prices were ris
ing und linns were raising the wages of
workinginen. At the same time any
one who made the reading of the daily
papers a constant business could not
reconcile these statemeuts with the fact
that in these very same papers were re
corded the failure of (inns and the clos
ing of banking establishments, here,
and there and everywhere.
Now, what ure the tacts '( This Is the
liret week after the election. What
does H. (i. Dunn it Co. say ?
According to their review, failures
for the week, (one week) have been 2S0,
against 201 last year.
"The liabilities of firms failing In Oc
tober were lrt,17'J,KS, against 10,772,
1U3 in live weeks last year, and 82I,'.C,.
132 In 1S92."
Stocks and products are weaker, and
there is some decrease In the number of
establisments at work. The controlling
power at present is the effort to read
juet prices after the remarkable riae ( ?)
of lust summer.
The II, ('. Frick company has bought
out competing interests and now owns
11,0811 out of H.Mtcoke ovens in the
Connelsville region, and has practical
control of more than three (juarters,
and an advance of coke to 92 is ex
pected. Yet the price of llessemer pig is
lower by 14.75 at Pittsburg, and steel
billets are lower because there is scarce
ly any demand for rails at combination
or trust prices. Contracts are few and
the demand for wire and wire nails is
curtailed by the nail trust's advance of
prices, 17(1 per cent in four months.
"Large western and eastern orders
help the demand for bar, but
finished products are sold below quota
tions which are now lower than they
were two months ago. Copper, tin and
lead are lower."
How do these lov er prices coincide
with the increase in the w ages of work
."Oil the other hand the anthracite
combination (or trust i seems ready to
make higher prices."
How does that help the farmer's and
workingmen'a interests and the poor of
the cities ?
"Meanwhile the great boot and bhoc
manufacture is embarrassed, even to
the stoppage of very many work, by
the refutal of jobbers to purchase, in
the belief that leather and shoes must
decline in accord with hides. Manu
facturers have offered concessions rang
ing from 5 to 10 cents per pair, increas
ing only the indisposition to buy. Many
woolen mills are also closing to wait for
order, though the demand is fairly sat
isfactory for dress goods and worMeJs,
and the Washington mills open clay
worsted at 10 cents advance, I Jut prices
of these and most qualities of woolens
are still unsteady, for manufacturers do
not know yet what thejr have to meet.
Sales in wojI amount to .",ii2:i,K
pounds for thf week, ajjalm-t X,.,iiii

A Word From Otoe County.
Nkisu.vska Ci:-v, Nov. 11, 1V.I5.
Knrroit IxuKruxuKKT. The cam
paign of 18U5 is now over and you will
notice by the returns a great falling oil
of the populist vote in this city and
county. This change Is ascribed to ttfo
First, there are a number of disturb
ing elements in the party who are con
stantly finding fault with otheis of the
party and often use unfair means to
destroy their inlluence and prejudice
voters against ftieir work for reform.
Second, there are a large numbef of
men in this county claiming to be pop
ulists who are in reality prohibitionists,
and it is doubtful if they ever voted a
straight populist ticket.
There are altogethertoo many iroody
goody people in our party. Nothing is
good enough for them aud invariably
they pose as political and social saints
who would not step aside from a cer
tain narrow path widen they conceive
to be ru k road in which every body
should travel. We know to a ceitainty
that if some of these men would search
themselves carefully they could Imd
many tares which should be sifted from
aiming the wheat. The men of great (V)
inlluence who have so long sought to
get crtitrul of the jiopultst party In this
county, got It t his year to their natisfue-
tioii and the party's sorrow, and the re
sult is u falliiuf oil of the vote from
I2oo to a little more than t' this year.
However, the party has not suffered
utter defeat in Otoe, "t'ooii " Mullis,

Economists all Populists.
Last Monday the Omaha llee spoke
of Senator John 1', Jones as follows:
Senator John P. Jones of .Nevada is
by all odds the allied man in the free
silver ranks. As un exponent, of bimet
allism at the old standard of US to I he
stands head and shoulders above any
01 her man who has chain pioned the cause
of the white metal, lie is a practical
miner of long experience and has made
the subject of the money metals a study
from both the practical and the theo
retical standpoint. His sincerity as au
advocate of the free and unlimited coin
age of silver cannot lie called intoques
tlou, ulthough his conclusions are ut
variance with those of the world's most
eminent political economists.
The, question arises; who are the
world's most eminent economists? Are
John Sherman, Carlisle, Horrace White,
Whitelaw IJoid, Dana, Pulitzer, James
the editor of the Uee the most eminent
economists? Or are such men us Fran
cis A. Walker, Aristotle, John Stewart
Mill, McLeod,Irof. Perry, Prof. Jevous,
Sir David Harbour, Prof. iid, Hobbs,
Fawcett and sevety-live or eighty other
writers of that class whom Senator
Jones quotes in his great speech, every
one of whom sustain him in his con
clusions, the most eminent economists ? -
It can be said without any equvoca
tion that the conclusions of John P,
Jones are sustained by every writer of
uny authority on political economy
from the days of Aristoltle to the pres
ent time. We defy the llee to give a
quotation from any one of them in con
tradiction to the conclusions of Senator
Jones. If there is one produce him.
That Senator Jones is endeavoring to
organize a party on the silver issue
alone is untrue, although the I!ee seems
to believe it. Whenever approached
upon that subject during the whole of
the 5l!rd congress, he always replied:
"It is not the silver question, It is the

money lending classes that legislators
would issue too much paper money,
they have preferred that mankind
should adhere to the automatic system

for the material of money.
"The creditor classes are now, however,
departing from that system. They are
determined to have a system of money
in which the unit shall from year to
year acquire greater and greater con
