Wm. A. McKeigan is dead, but
the memory of the work that lie
did for mankind will never die.
The recollection of it will be held
sacred by all lovers of mankind
wherever bis record is known.
With unfailing courage, neither
elated when victoiious nor discour
aged when defeated, he fought on
to the very last hour of his life,
lie was of the common people,
lie knew how to sympathize with
them as the rich and favored never
can. Although the very men
whose homes and hearths he la
bored so bard to protect from the
despoilcrs, often turned upon and
tried to destroy him, he cherished
no bitterness toward them. He
would only say, like one of old,
"They know not what they do."
During the last campaign, blind
and weak, he staggard through the
state on his trembling limbs, plead
ing with a voice which already had
in it the accents of approaching
death, with the people to relieve
themselves from corrupt courts,
and to remove by their votes the
oppressors power that rested so
heavily upon every home in Ne
braska but lie came to his own and
his own received him not.
This has been the fate oi reform
ers since the beginning of time,
The people destroy them, and then
after they are dead build monu
ments to their memory. There is
a profound sorrow all over the
state because Wm. A. McKeigan
is dead.

The Associated 1'ress says that
the senate went wild over Grover's
message on war with England.
That su'ted their plan of campaign
exactly. They could howl "war
with England" until after the next
election, and then settle the whole
matter in a week. Meantime the
money power would establish iUelf
in every branch of the novcrnment.
Any scheme will suit the gold bugs
that will attract the attention of the
masses away from the money ques
tion long enough to permit them
to rivet the chains of slavery upon
us. They used the tariff for many
years. Now they are going to use
this war with England cry. The
people have been so easily de
ceived they think this plan will do
just as well as the tariff did in
the past.

With the unerring precision of
science, the economists foretold
what would result to the manufac
tures of this country upon the
adoption of the gold standard,
while India, South America
and Asia remained upon the silver
standard. The manufacturers per
sisted in aiding the bankers and
credit holders, Don Cameron told
only the truth when he said: "If
the silver is sacrificed, the manu
facturers will be responsible for it."
Japan having cheap money, as
compared with the United States,
wages and the price of commodi
ties being absolutely stable, shu is
able to enter our territory and un
der sell any manufacturer in the
United States. Even Old Sleepy
has at last waked up to the fact,
and we find the following in the
State Journal of Dec. 14:
Titer wciu In be aomethlng very tangible be
hind tbim Inlk about Japaiieae competition with
American labor. Mntcbea of good fjuallty ac now
old in Sau FrancUco at letn than the coat of uwnu

812 bicycle that weic o widely advertised a few
wucka ago, but the cuunlng Jap are certainly
tending In watchea, clock, clothing, fancy good
and iM tiom alaUnrdly low price and are now
prnparlug to make trouble for the cation Manufac
turer all over the world.
Time and time again, have the
economists said that Asia and
South America would make des
erts out of our wheat and cotton
farms and transfer manufacturing
of all textile goods to their own
shores with their silver standard.
The State Journal talks of put
ting up a tariff barrier. That con
tains just a much wisdom as did
its, and John Sherman's promises
of prosperity within ten days after
the repeal of the Sherman act. Ex
perience is a dear school, but gold
bug fools will learn in no other.
Mr. Gere's attention is called to
the following extract from the
London Financial News.

The Albion Caliope has been
consolidated with the Cedar Kapids
Kepublican and a new name taken
under which to propagate populist
principles. The paper will here
after be called the Hoone county
Outlook. The Kepublican has been
one of the best populist papers
in the state. The Outlook will
have the same editor, Mr. J. K.
Uaiid. In speaking of the demise
of the Caliope, Mr. liaird makes
the following sensible remark con
cerning it: "It struggled under
the difficulty of having no settled
editorial management and no per
manent personality behind it."
No paper has, or ever will sue-
cced unless it has a "settled edi
torial management end a person
ality behind it." The his
tory of journalism cannot
show a single success that
did not have these two ele
ments in it. The Chicago Times
under Story, and the New York
Tribune under Greeley arc
examples of the success of these
two principles. The live pipers
in the populist party all have a set
tled editorial managemet and a per
sonality behind them. This is
what Mr. L'aird said and we re
print it for the benefit of those
who hold different opinions.
Senator I'eller has 1'ill No. 1,011

The threat of republican ascen-
dancy is producing worse havoc
than "the threat of democratic as
cendancy" two years ago. During
the first regular session of the last
congress, it was the habit of Ding
ley of Main and other republican
leaders to get the floor and depict
the awful woes that had come upon
the. country on account of "lite
threat? of democratic ascendancy,"
before a law had boen put upon
the statute books by a democratic
congress and while the McKinley
and all other republican legislation
was still in force. They could, and
on the average they did more ca
lamity howling in an hour, than
the longest haired, wildest eyed
populist from Kansas could do in
six hours.
Now there is a threat of republi
can legislation and tenfold worse
disasters are at hand. There is a
general strike of all the street car
employes in Philadelphia. Fifteen
thousand tailors are locked out in
New York. Infernal machines are
being sent through the mails
Eanks and business houses are
everywhere failing, and the condi
tion of affairs is worse than it
was under the threat of democrat
ic ascendancy.
The truth about the matter is,
that the prospect of the power to
govern, going into the hands of
either of the old parties
is enough to frighten any
well balanced man. When he
looks Hack upon the record they
have made, upon the horrible con
dition to which they have brought
the people of the United states, is
it any wonder that he has no faith
in either one of them?
Eor twenty-two years under
both democratic and republican
rule prices have continued to fall
and debts, interest and taxes to in
crease until the burden has become
unbearable. The ruling of either
spells destruction.
Only recently two populists of
Filmore county, Minn., subscribed
for 600 copies of Ignatius Donnel
ly's paper, The Representative, of
Minneapolis, for next year, and
now comes a populist committee in
St. Paul with a movement on foot
to subscribe for 5,000 copies of
that paper to be given away until
the election in i8, and a similar
movement is 011 foot in Minneapo
lis. If the Nebraska populist would
do something like that for the In dk
pknuknt, it would not only be "a
credit to the party and the city in
which it is published" as the Cen
tral City Democrat sa)s, but to the
whole state.
The writer cf this may be ac
counted a heretic but nevertheless
he cannot see the wisdom of the
present effort made to induce im
migration into this state. Shall we
invite laborers? There are thous
ands of able bodied men here now
who seek employment in vain.
Shall we invite lawyers? The state
is full of them. Shall we invite
merchants? Those here now can
find but little sale for their goods.
Shall we invite ministers? We
can't support what we have. Sit all
we invite fanners? Will fanners
come where oats sells for ten cents
and corn for fifteen? Shall wc in
vite capitalists to loan money to a
people who cannot pay the interest
on what they now owe? The only
people whom we could honestly
invite to come to this state at the
present time are a few more slu riffs
and receivers for broken banks ai.d
bankrupt corporations and they
probably wouldn't come, for they
have more business in the states
whcie they reside than they can
attend to.
The people in the other states
already know there is nothing to
be eaint d in coing from one state
to anothi r to escape the i tlei ts of
the gold standard. It's datk shad

Senator Stewart introduced the
other day the following resolution:
Ili-colved, That the committee on finance be ill
reeled to inquire what ctfect tbc difference in ex
ehtng between gold ;andurd conn trie and silver
huikW.I countric Jiux iijon the agricultural and
nviuuftcluring Industrie of the I'nltod Stale,
and report by bill or otherw Ue,
Upon this subject the Senator
proposes to deliver a speech. Per
haps not a thousand men in the
United States, outside of the econ
omists, have any definite ideas on
this subject, or even know what
the term "difference in exchange"
means. The Senator will proceed
to enlighten the public upon
the subject. It can only
be remarked iiere that
the difference in the purchasing
power of the money in countries
having the silver standard or those
having the gold, acts as an export
ing bounty on everything they have
to sell. The result of it is, Japan
can ship goods into this country
and ruin our manufacturers, and
Argentina and India can undersell
us in London on wheat, cotton,
beef and hides. The end of it will
be ruin to our manufacturers and
make deserts of our wheat and cot
ton farms.
According to the cablegrams
published in the dailies, the Lng
lish press puts a correct estimate
upon Mr. Cleveland's special mes
sage. One of the London papers
says: "The uniform belief is that
it has its sole origin in political
motives." That is to say, the
message was concocted in the gold
bug circles of Wall street under
the advice of the: London Roths
childs for the purpose of carrying
the next election.
Sir Ashmead Hartlett, M. P.,
says: "The extreme tone of the
president's message is rather to be
regarded as an electioneering
The London News says: "This
I election dodge does not give us a
j moment's uneasiness."
The St. James Gazette says: "It
is merely an election dodge."
The London Globe remarks:
"No one doubts that President
Cleveland's heroics are due to the
neccssitie-s of politics" and then re
fers to his bluff against Knzland
when he demanded the recall of
the former Piitish minister, Sack-ville-West.
The Standard thinks it is an ef
fort to hold the Irish votennd save
the democratic party from annihi
lation. A Liverpool dispatch says and
they have evidently been consult
ing the Rothschilds--that "We arc
assured that in unusually well in
formed quarters there is a shrewd
suspicion regarding the real ob-
' jects of the message, and this is
regarded as a sufficient justification
for declining to take President
Cleveland too seriously."
The London Times says that
"this sudden offensive movement
on the part of the United States
has more to do with party politics
than with diplomacy. Much may
be pardoned in view of he ap
proaching pi evidential election."
No doubt the editor stepped
across the street and hud a fe.v
wcrds with P.aron Rothchilds be
fore he wrote that.
The fact about the matter is tin
only ones who are really in earnest
about this matter and really want a
chance to drive Kngland and her
! financial policies from this hemis
phere are the pops.
I'oi. R million dollars in gold go
to London on tomorrow's steamers.
If Giover is going to fight he'd bet
ter get at it In. (ore Rothschilds

Kngland there would have to be an
issue of legal U nder payer money
within )0 days. Go ahead. That
suits the pops, i. e. An issue of
