POPULISTS MARCH ONWARD!
An Analysis of the Vote in the
Last Election Shows Gains
WE ARE BIGHT AND WE WILL
We Will Fight it out on This Line
if it Takes the Host of the Cen
tury. The populist of Nebraska should take
heart. The ollicial vote of the state
shows that we have made gains all along
the line we have polled more
votes for the head of our slate ticket
than ever before in a straight light. We
have cast nearly 18,000 more votes on
candidates for district judges than in
'J1. We have added to our percentage
of the total vote; we have increased our
number of county oflieers.
ANALYSIS OK THE VOTE.
The oilicial canvass shows the follow
ing result on supreme judge:
Norval (rep) 79,150; Maxwell (pop)
70,50(5; Mahoney (gold bug dem) 18,031!;
Phelps (silver dem) 10,214; Wolfenbar
ger (pro) 4,311; Norvals plurality over
Maxwell 8,590. In the three counties
of Douglas, Lancaster and Gage, con
taining the three largest cities of the
state, Omaha, Lincoln and Ueatrice,
-Norval received 17,4.'15, Maxwell 8,619,
Norval's plurality in the three counties
8,78flso that outside of these three
counties .Judge Maxwell carried the
state by 190, Omaha alono gave Nor
val about half of his plurality.
Out of the 90 counties of the state
Maxwell carried 49 and Norval 41.
The populist, candidates for regents
received about the same vote as those
compakison of votk with ritEviocs
In making a comparison with former
years, in order to get at the straight
populist strength, we cannot take the
vote of '91 or '94 as in both years the
head of our ticket was practically en
dorsed by the democrats. Taking the
other four elections, since the people's
party has been organized in the state,
we hnd the following results:
In 1890 Powers (pop) for governor re
In 1892 Van M yck (pop) for governor
In 189.'! Uolcorab (pop) for supreme
judge received 05,000.
In 1895 Maxwell (pop) for supreme
judge received 70,500.
From this it will be seen that we cast
the largest vote for the head of our I ick-
et this year that we ever did In a
straight three-cornered light.
laking the result on percentages in
these four years, which is the only fair
way to test a party's growth or decay,
we hnd the lollowmg results:
In 1890 Powers 70,187 out of a total
vote for governor of 211,071 - popu
list percentage of total nearly 33,
In 192 au Wvck 08,017-total vote
for governor 197,293- populist percent
age of total vote nearly 35.
In 1893 Jlolcomb 05,000-total vote
for supreme judge 181,000-populist per
centage of total vote about 30.
In 1895 Maxwell 70,500 total vote for
supreme judge 182,910 populist per
rentage of total vote, nearly 39.

13ut even with the large emigration
from these districts, the republicans
had to resort to bare-faced fraud iu one
of them In order to count in their candi
date. In the Fourteenth district Judge
Welty (pop) was rightfully elected by
three plurality. In Furnas county,
however, partisans of Mr. Norris, the
republican candidate, gained access to
the county clerk s oflice, went into the
oflice on Sunday and forged both can
vas books, raising Mr.Norris' vote 0, by
forging a cipher into a six, at the same
time forging live tally marks in Union
and Heaver precincts. The lirst fraud
was discovered and the supreme
court was asked to order a
corrected . return, which it did
but the corrected return still rec
ognized the live forged tallies, stat
ing, nowever, tnat these tames repre
sented live more votes for Norris that,
were fhownby the certificates of the
judges and clerks of election. The state
canvassing board, however, insisted on
counting the forged tallies, thus elect
ing Mr. Norris, the republican candi
date, by a majority of two. This action
was bitterly opposed.by (Jovernor JIol
comb, but he was overridden by the four
republican members of the board. This
is perhaps the most open fraudjagalnst
an honest count, ever attempted in Ne
braska; and by the action of the state
board of cauvssers, the crime of for
gery of election returns and the open
stealing of a district judge must be laid
at the door of the republican party
of this state. There will be a ecu test
instituted in this district and if we are
successful in securing our rights, we
will then have lost but one judge in the
state and this loss may be accounted
for by emigration from the Thirteenth
OAINS ON COt; TV OFFICEUS,
Jn county ollicers the populists
have made a net gain iu the state of
about 25, compared with '93. Counting
the majority of the county board as one
oflicer, we elected something over 300 in
the fct'ule. These, together with the olli
cers holding over, will give us some
thing over 350 county ollicers in the
state, after the lirst of January,
OA ins in otheu states,
News from other states show almost
uniform populist gains. In Ohio our
vote has grown from 49.0D0 in '94 to 55,
000 in '95. In Iowa we have more than
doubled our vote. In Kansas a gain of
county ollicers and district judges is re
ported. In Colorado and Kentucky we
have more than held our own. In Mis
sissippi we have reduced the contest to
a square-toed fight between the demo
crats and populists, though the former
by adopting a free silver platform, cut
us out of much of the vote we would
otherwise have gained.
From theses figures, it would appear
that the siren song warbled by some of
the republican papers and joined in, ac
cording to popular report by one so
called populist paper, that
"the pops are dying out"
becomes too silly and childish to
require refutation. The same song has
been sung for the past five years; and
all the time the party has steadily grown.
LESSONS TO III; LKAI1NE! I.
At least two wholesome lessons should
be learned from the late contest. Kver
since the organization of the party, we
have been cursed by traitors, cropping
up here and there. We had a few of
them again this year. From this time
forward every traitor should be branded
with the mark of Cain. Treachery
should be made unpopular and selling
The second lessou should be learned
by the free silver demorrat. They
should lee that nothing but ruin awaits
the honest free silver man who fullnns
either of the eld parties farther. The
people's party is tim origtgnutl fret) sil
ver party of America and will in limit
become the only one, If it i hot alreidy.

A party that is not worth lighting for
is not worthy to win. We should go
forward with the full determination to
lick the people's enemies decisively and
completely, even if It takes twenty
years to doit. This is no time for
weak-kneed paltering and sentimental
ism, but it is a time for prompt, vigor

THIS PAPER ALL EIGHT.
Its Work Endorsod by an old Stu
dent and Economist.
Omaha, Ned,, Nov. 29, 1895.
Kditou Lincoln Inuei'Enoent:
I have read with much interest and
pleasure the article in the Inihi'en
dent, Noy. 22, quoting 1'rof. Francis
A. Walker on "the quantity theory of
money," and of value, and herewith
wiah to thank you with all my heart for
publishing the same.
The people need educating upon this
question of money more than all other
questions or differences of opinion com
bined. The mass of the people are as it
were, are being rapidly devoured by a
monster, and they do not understand or
appreciate the danger.
Not only the people oft he United
States but the whole human family are
fast drifting upon the rocks of revolu
tion and anarchy because of the de
plorable ignorance of the principles of
money and commercial exchanges.
As the wealth ol the world and all
means of existence concentrate into
fewer and fewer .lands, as is inevitable
under the present system of money and
absorption through interest, rent and
profits, the cataclysm gets nearer and
nearer. With the invention of the
maney labor saving machines for pro
duction, rapid transportation and com
munication, and all becoming monopo
lized in the hands of the few, the ava
landi is moving at lightning speed.
What providence can save us if we
will not investigate educate ourselves
and accept the truth in this matter?
As showing how "great minds agree"
and "what I know about money," as
said by Ilorrace (Jreely "what he knew
about farming," I send some newspaper
clippings something I myself have
written on the subject of money and
what constitutes value.
1 would like very much to have Prof.
Taylor and others of our University
read the articles "Value and Prices,"
and "Definition of Money,'' also G. H
Wishing yon every success I remain,

above are ns sound writing as ever

art and Jones.
Washington, Dec. 4. Special.
Senator Allen by a parliamentary move
which would have done.credit to the'
shrewdness of Gorman or Teller, who
are recognized to be the tacticians of
this body, stepped to the leadership in
foreign affairs today. He had on yes
terday introduced a series of resolutions
on that subject which today had the
right of way and he proceeded to make
a speech full of sound statesmanship
and patriotism. It was curious to note
that whilehe spoke the galleries and
the senate lioor were crowded to their
atmost capacity. That was not the
manner in which the great populist sen
ator was treated two years ago. Then
there was nothing but sneers and con
tempt meted out to him. Now th
listan to him with the most respectful
attention. Ills speech was upon his
resolution for the recognition of Cuban
In a statesmanlike way, in forcible
and simple English he described the
strategic significance of Cuba in time of
war, and its importance in times of
peace, and declared his belief in the
justness and equity of recognizing the
revolutionists and assisting them m all
lawful ways to establish a free republic.
He did not desire this government to
plunge into a headlong strife but he be
lieved it to be the true policy of the
United Statesthat, whenever a people
showed themselves desirous of estab-
lishing a republican form of govern
ment upon adjacent territory they
should receive American encourage
ment and support. He believed that
the time was speedily coming when not
only the people of Cuba would be free,
but when the people of all the adjacent
Islands would have established a repub
lican form of government or would have
become integral parts of the United
states. Ho did not favor greed for ter
ritory or the glories of conquest, but he
did believe that the sober.candid, think
ing, patriotic people of the United
States fully realized the necessity of
promptly taking steps in that direction
to secure their country against foreign
invasion and to extend the interests of
their commerce. He also believed in
the Monroe doctrine and thought that
tho people were dissatisfied with the
foreign" policy pursued for the last
twenty-five years. He thought that it
had been diliatory, if not absolutely
trivial and contemptible. It had been
a hiss and byword among the people of
the United States.
This burst of patriotic eloquence was
received with evident signs of delight
and every pencil in the press gallery
was busily at work taking down the
words and the eyes of the whole senate
were fastened upon hint.
I.'ut Allen wag only beginning to
warm up. When he wound up with
these words it was hard for the great
audience to refrain from applause,
which is contrary to the rules of the
