Advocates of Free Coinage Meet
and Organire.
About forty freesihf r advocates from
all parts of the state met ut the Lindell
hotel last Saturday afternoon and or
ganized the Nebraska Silver league.
The following declaration of principles
was adopted:
"We declare ourselves in favor of the
immediate restoration of free and un
limited eoinageof old und silver at the
present legal ratio of Hi to 1, without
waiting for the aid or consent of any
other nation, such gold and silver coin
to be alike fuil legal lender for ulldcbta
public and private,
'We Invite all persons who believe in
the financial policy above bet forth to
unite with us in its dissemination. "
The organization is entirely non-partisan
und the executive power is vested
in o committee of four chosen from the
republican, jiopiili&t, democratic and
prohibition parties. Ex Congressman
. L ' Laws, Governor Holcomb, ex
Congressman iJryan and lion. II, W.
Hardy, late prohibition candidate for
governor were unanimously chosen as
members of such committee.
The persons present represented all
parties and all parts of the state. A
large number of free silver repull cans
were there. Among the populists were
the chairman and secretary of the state
central committee, John II. Powers, . I.
V, Wolfe and many others.
What He Thinks of Nebraska's
' new Silver Organization.
Hon. W,J. ISryan was asked in re
regard to the plans and purposes of the
new organization founded in Lincoln
last Saturday. He said:
"I think that an organization to pro.
pagate the gospel of bimetallism will be
much more effective, composed of all
t'jofy ho fs)vor the free and unlimited
oomage of both metals, than seperate
organizations restricted by party lines.
Party orgaizations cannot avoid more
or less antagonisms."
I)o you think it is possible to get all
thohe uho believe alike on the money
(jiiestiou together in ou organization
and t luts concentrate the educational
work V
"1 think so, for the iinancial policy of
the government effects all alike. The
fiirtner, the merchant, the professional
men all, without exception feel now,
and will in the i.ear future still more
fully realize, that their interests are
identical. Low prices ailed the farmer
first. When he, gets but little for his
products, ho has little or nothing with
which to buy goods of the merchant
When the merchants cannot sell the de
posils disappear from the banks, then
there is disaster to the banks, the de
maud for all sortof professional sit
vices ceases and we come to the coudi
tion we .see to day."
Do you think that Una new organiza
tion will be successful?
1 "ISy next Saturday night we expect
! to have two congressional districts fnl
j ly organized with a working committee
in each county, and within two weeks
i the whole, state. The time seems ripe
J for active work in this line."
What Mr. Hardy Says.
Mr. II. W. Hardy was asked what he
thought of the prospect of thoroughly
organizing the state by the Nebraska
Silw'i League. He said:
1 think the pronpect is guxj. The
work ulreudy done shows that it will be

The Best Banking System in tho
World a Failure in Lincoln.
One link in "the best tanking sys
tem the world ever saw" Hew apart last
Monday when the (li-rman .National
Pink of Lincoln closed its doors. The
failure is not as disastrous as sonic that
have preceded it, hut in some respects
it is most shameful. It appears that all
the large depositors had, in some way,
been forewarned, and when the doors
closed, there were none but the small
depositors left to stifler. Even these
w ill not receive much sympathy from
any one. 'They have ulmobt to 11 man
rejected the truth when presented to
them. They have by their vote and
their influence supported a system of
finance that could result in no other
wuy. Let both bunker and depositor
get out 011 the road and tramp aw hile.
Perhaps alter a year or two of such ex
perience they will be able to tell the
difference between plenty of good, full
legal tender money and this wiud.whieh
is the basis of the best banking system
in the world.
- There was some ejcilement on the
street at (irst, but when it was learned
that there was less than 5U,(XX) depos
its in the bank and some of the stock
holders were wealthy men,
tho idea that at Borne
time, the depositors woull get part of
their money back had a quieting effect.
There was a run for some time 011
the First National but the cashier con
tinued to hand out money to all comers
and toward noon it subsided.
On Tuesday there was more excite
ment. The Lincoln Savings bank put
up a notice that they would require the
sixty ,days notice allowed by law, in
case of any withdrawals of deposits.
The excitement increased when it was
announced early In the forenoon that
H, II. Niksley & Co's, large dry goods
house was closed up.
All these chunks of republican prog
pentycoming at once, had atendency to
unsettle the nerves. Vet the people
went quietly about their business and
there was no disorder at all. A great
many people however are seriously in
quiring how much of this sort of prot
perity can the people ttand and remain
orderly and submissive.
Men who are such fools as to vote
such a state of affairs upon themselves
are not to be relied upon to maintain
order and good government w hen the
time of trial comes. A man who will
vote to rob himself w ill not have any
more sense than to try to kick up a row
when the robbing is done.
nON. O. L. LAWS.
He Makes Some Remarks About
the Nebraska Silver League.
To the Lii:pi;mi:sis inquiry con
cerning the prospects of the Nebraski
Silver League, Mr. Laws replied:
'it will take a good deal ofhard work
to thoroughly organize the w hole state,
but we are willing to do the work. I
think the plan adopted is practical, and
the work is going rapidly forward,'
Do you think the people generally
will take it up?
" Ves, I think so. There is not a citi
zen in the state who is not vitally inter
ested in it, whether he bo laborer,
banker, farmer, nierchantor professional
man. No man can escape tho power of
money. A fanner out of debt is in the
safest position, but ho is by no means
safe. If prices continue to fall, al
though he umy own a farm and be out
of debt, the time will come when he
will be unable to support his family and
pay his taxes. There in no exemption
l iw that applies to taxes. Taxes will

About tho Blind Institute.
Nkhkaska Citv, Dec. IS,
II. H ircKi.vs, Lincoln, Neb.:
IfKAKJ'iit-The situational the blind "
institute is not very materially changed.
The removal of W. F. Wright by the
superintendent has had no tendency to
make peace with many populists hero
v ho respect and admire Mr. Wright
for his long devotion and earnest work
for populistic principles and who at the
tame time are led to question Mr. Johu
son's devotion to reform.
Since the superintendent aililiates
mainly w ith republicans since assuming
the duties of his position, and from tho
fact that he prefers republican em
ployes to the exclusion of competent
populists, it woul l seem that we aro
justified in questioning Mr. Johnson's
fidelity to the party of which he Is now
a beneficiary.
As you know, Mr. Johnson's appoint
ment was bi ought uboutlargely throug 1
the efforts of Otoe county
is to be regretted that he has so con
ducted himself and the institution as to
create strife and distentions among our
friends here and over the stale, and
and bring discredit upon the adminis
tration and the party.
