THE WEALTH MAKERS.
sometime awkward things to make
sound well in some people's ears.
After repeated failure in this county
to get a crowd, the Republicans bare
concluded, hereafter, to take the crowd
with them, by the 15. & M. route.
It begins now to look like a landxlide.
Some would be eatintied if a part come,
but the political breeze seems now to

"Serpents hiss and so do geese," was
Rosewaters rebuke to the tailor-made
bipeds, who hissed for hire, at his meeting
last Friday evening.
Hon. E. E. Brown, a distinguished Re
publican, had the distinguished honor of
introducing the distinguished Editor, to
his magnificent audience last Friday
Mayor Weir is now athome, to remain,
until he goes to Washington to take his
seat as the next congressman from the
1st district, except temporary absence,
speaking, and hand-shaking, in the dis
trict. We're not joking.
We wonder if Stephenson who tried so
hard to break up the Rosewater meeting
at the Lansing, last Friday evening, is a
son of Stephen, as the namo implies, who
was stoned to death for a much less
Watch for the straws, and you can find
who are most interested in the .result of
the election this fall in Nebraska. Who
furnishes the free passes for Republican
speakers, and free trains of cars to trans
port the listeners to Republican rallies?
Tom Majors was not prseent, in person,
at the Rosewater meeting, but his picture
was pinned to a good many coats, and a
crimson blush of shame seemed to sur
round even his shadow, as the speaker
by the calcium light of official documents'
threw his official record upon thecanvass)
The Republicans of Lincoln are circulat
ing a petition to presentto Mr. Rosewater
requesting him to make his next date in
our city on Borne other day of the week,
as bis speech left a ringing in their ears,
which, to them, is a sign of death, and
they attribute it, not so much to what
he said, as to its being said on b riday.
Strode's friends say he is physically un
sound, and his enemies know he is politi
cally unsound, and, it is said, that a
sound mind cannot exist in an unsound
body, therefore his mind isunsound, and,
it seems to us, there is altogether too
much unsoundness in his make up to
make a sound congressman. Weir is al
right, for he has "mens sana in corpore
sano, ana is sound also politically.
In the language of Tom Majors here's
two of a kind:
They are Burns and McKesson

LOCAL POLITICAL COMMENT
Hams Kaulzman is making it warm for
the Holt county boodlers and they evi
dently wish he was in Hades. His Beacon

and the Bartley crowd will hear some
thing drop if Haras keeps his promise,
Let's have it Hans. The people are after
facts. Elgin Advance.
One of the most logical political
speeches with which the people of Fill
more county have ever ,been favored was
that of Judge W. L. Stark at Geneva
Saturday. The speaker held a large
audience for two hours and received close
attention. He speaks in Exeter on the
15th and the people of this vicinity have
a treat in store for them. Exeter Enter
There are a good many Democrats who
do not seem to have been bothered thus
far with the reflection that their cham
pion, Mr. Bryan, is between two fires. If
the Republicans have a majority in the
legislature, he is not in it for the senate.
If the Populists get a majority, it is
hardly probable that they will forget the
fact and give the office of senator to a
.member of another party. If the Demo
crats have the balance of power, he has
room for hope. Mr. Bryan will, there
fore, be very apt to try and keep the
pops from being too signally successful.
He would hardly desire to see a Populist
majority. News, Lincoln.
Facts Which Expose Falsehoods.

A New Itranch of the National Civil
8? r vice.
ByJamksH. ( anhkld
Chancellor ok Umveickity ok Nebraska,
During the first week in July I bud the
honor to draw and forward to a friend
in Congress a suggestion for a new branch
of the National Civil Service. The pres
sure of the business at Washington ren
dered it quite impossible to give this
proposition as much attention as it might
otherwise have received; and we both felt
that it would be better to place it before
the public for general discussion before
bringing it into legislative bails. Very
briefly, then, it is outlined fortbecolumns
of this Journal
There is a constant and wise tendency
to throw around public service of any
kind the sanctions and restrictions and
general supervision of State or National
authority. The examination and licens
ing of steam engineers under city ordi
nances; the regulations of the pilot ser
vice; the statutes governing the enlist
ment and service of seamen; the care with
which the States protect the public in the
matter of the practice of medicine and
the dispensing of remedies; even the ex
amination and licensing of members Of
the bar and of teachers, are all illustra
tions of this principle,
Following this, it is proposed to estab
lish a United States Railway Service.
Those enlisted in this service should in
clude at least engineers, fireme.-i, conduc
tors, brakemen, and switchmen. The
conditions of enlistment, the term of ser
vice, the methods of withdrawal, the
compensation of the members of each
class, the mileage or hours that shall
constitute a day's service, the conditions
of overwork and overpay, the exact re
sponsibility of employers for injury to
the employees, the methods of possible
pensioning all these details should be
determined by the general Government
and be constituent parts of the general
plan. Then it should be made unlawful
for any transportation company to em
ploy others than enlisted men; and these
should be employed, of course, under the
To those who have had any acquaint
ance with either Government service or
that of any great system of transporta
tion, the details of such an organization
are not at all formidable. The Govern
ment assumes no financial responsibility
whatever. It may very properly make
provision, however, that the pay of
members of this service shall constitute
a preferred claim against the corpora
tions employing. It would not be at all
difficult to enlist in this Bervice all the
men that would be needed, as they ar
already in the employ of the various rail
roads. Care should be taken to enlist
none but the best of men. There would
be very little difficulty as to a scheme ot
wages, since wanes on the various rail
way lines do not differ much at present,
Bervice Considered. With such a service
there would be no more danger of serious
complaint or of strikes than there is now
in mail service.
Such a service, under such regulation
and supervision, is needed, if forno other
purpose than to make absolutely certain
the transportation of the mails. But it
is just as much needed to make travel
safe, and to preserve life at great centers
where the daily supplies must be regular
ly received. More and more does the en
tire commercial and even physical life of
the Nation depend upon regularity and
efficiency in transportation. Because of
inter-State relations, the care of this can
not' be. given to the States. National
superintendence is all that is left us.
"Put Me Down as a Member."
Steele City, Neb., Sept. 24, 1894.
Editor Wealth Makers:
Our next governor, auditor, superin
tendent of public instruction, also our
member of Congress from this district,
came to Fairbury and gave us a good
talk. I am proud of our state and con

parison neither physically, mentally nor
John M. Thurston says that the De
mocracy has evidently surrendered to
the money power. Yes, that's so, John
but after having ridden that party down
to its political grave in now proposes to
change horses and ride the Republicans
to the same common grave. The east
has no use for the government, especially
for the west and the southern portion of
the country, except to wring the last
drop of sweat and blood from the com
mon people. Rut if the representatives
of the west and south are true to them
selves and the interests of their constitu
ents this conspiracy will notsucceed.
Now in regard to the Initiative and
Referendum, which embraces the Impera
tive Mandate. Impress it on each voter
that instead of sending his delegate with
absolute power to enact laws affecting
his personal welfare, with the Heferendum
and through the Imperative Mandate we
can compel that delegate to perform his
duty, and can defy the corporate briber,
because our court of appeal will be the

every follower of Jesus of Nazereth wear
a white cross on his breast pledging him
self to shed the blood of no man, but to

Ilrjran at Osceola.
The sMH-ch of W. J. Bryan at the Polk
Co. Fair, on Friday, was a fine oratori
cal effort. Its effects would be as varied
as the political prejudices and mental
idiosyncracies.of thepersons who listened
to it. The hearty and good natured
laugh w hich followed his allusion to Polk
county as a fresh field and pasture
green for his eloquent efforts at political
propagandise showed that there were a
great many alert and critical Populists
in the audience, while craned necks, open
mouths, and bulging eyes betrayed the
presence of enthusiastic fusionists and
hero worshipers prepared to swallow in
discriminate everything which dropped
from the lips of the silver tongued orator.
Now aud then there might be observed
an "Almost thou persuadest me' look
upon the countenances of some uupetri
fled Republicans, while here and there a
stony look of stupid and determined dis
sent marked thefossiliferous faces of some
stratified g. o. ps. of antiquity.
Mr. Bryan's answers to tho quesiions
propounded by somesimple minded Pop
ulist whose untutored mind still harbors
a belief in political honesty and consist
ency were both courteous and candid and
revealed the fact, as the questioner pro
bably intended, that he believes the Dem
ocratic party can be relied upon to carry
out all necessary reforms and therefore,
that the People's party has no Excuse for
existence, and that he is and is likely to
remain a Democrat, the foolish declara
tions and prophecies of the Populists to
to the contrary notwithstanding. He
also clearly and honestly defined his po
sition on the money question, briefly in
dicated his views on land and transpor
tation, and proved to every intelligent
Populist present that he differed radi
cally with them on these three great is
sues. ,The Populist who, after reading
his platform and hearing his speech at
Osceola, declares that he is a Populist in
everything but the name, either knows
nothing about our platform oris afflicted
with some mental deformity. If Popu
lists continue to deceive themselves in re
gard to him it is not his fault. Mr. Bry
an has given us a manly and straight
forward declaration of hie, principles, and
if we lose our heads over a few compli
ments paid to the People's party and
make political asses of ourselves, he is
not to blame. If all Populists were as
devoted to their party as Mr. Bryan is
to his, we would never have heard of
fusion in Nebraska. Mr. Bryan believes
that the Democratic yarty can be re
formed and will eventually swallow up
the People's party, Populists who have
a similar faith in the party which has
confessed its inability to carry out the
reforms to which it was pledged in the
last campaign, and who are anxious to
be swallowed, are the only ones who can
consistently support W. J. Bryan. No
one who listened intelligently to his
speech at Osceola could help noticing
that while his eloquent and patriotic
generalizations, his ironical exposure of
protective tariff and bounty frauds, his
masterly plea for free silver, and his per
sonal claims as a reformer, were highly
appreciated and received deserved ap
plause, whenever he essayed to excuse or
apologize for the action of the present
Democratic administration, the effort
was a flat failure. When he gave as
"reasonable ground for hope that the
Democratic party would carry out the
refojm indicated in his platform," that
they had put the income tax in their
tariff bill, that they would favor the elec
tion of D. S. Senators by direct vote of
the people, and that several Democratic
conventions in the west and south had
adopted platforms similar to his, we
could not help smiling, remembering
that the income tax, a purely Populist
measure was forced upon them by the
exigencies of the situation and is repudi
ated by the leaders of their party, and
that both the Republicans aud Democrats
are this year shaping their platforms to
suit the locality, pure gold-bugism in the
east and gradually toning down to free
silver in the west and promising all
things, to all men, in order to down the
pesky Populists. Another thing which
amused us mightily was his declaration
in words of burning patriotism that
whenever his party declared in favor of a
single gold standard, he would leave it
in spite of the binding influence of a long
line of Democratic ancestors. Mr. Bryan
knows as well as we do that neither the
Democratic or Republican party will ever
commit suicide by declaring in favor of a
single gold standard. It suits them
much better to declare in favor of the
gold and silver coinage of the constitu
tion and a hopeless international agree- j
ment, while they force us on a gold
basis by legislation hostile to silver. We
smiled audibly too when in words of im
passioned eloquence the Democratic can
didate for the U. S. Senate impressed up
on a Populist audience the tremenduous
folly of dying in "the middle of the road"
for principle, when, by a little fusion pol
icy, they could electfreesilver Democrats,
and we would add, help to maintain a
Democratic majority in congress. We
did not smile, because we thought he was
in earnest, when he spoke of the trans
cendent importance of the money ques
tion over all other questions and urged
upon us the sacred duty of supporting
men, regardless of party, who represented
us right on that question, but when we
got home aud found the World-Herald,
of which he is editor-in-chief, warmly
supporting gold bug Boyd against free
silver Deaver in the second congressional
district, we positively grinned. How
would Populists like to support on a
'usion deal gold bug cuckoo Boyd who as

FERTILE SAN LDIS VALLEY. COLORADO.
THE SAN LUIS VALLEY, COLORADO, it a stretch of level plain about
as large as the State of Connecticut, lying between surrounding ranges
of lofty mountains and watered by the Bio Grande River and a score
or more of small tributary streams. It was the bottom of a great sea, whose
deposits have made a fertile soil on an average more than ten feet deep.
The mountains are covered with great deposits of snow, which melt and
furnish the Irrigating canals with water for the farmers' crops.
The Climate is Unrivaled.
Almost perpetual sunshine, and the elevation of f-bout 7,000 feet dispels all
malaria, nor are such pests as chinch bugs, weevil, etc., found there. Flow
ing artesian wells are secured at a depth, on an averege, of about 100 feet,
and at a cost of about 825.00 each. Such is the flow that they are being util
ized for irrigating the yards, garden and vegetaDle crops. The pressure is
sufficient to carry the water, which is pure, all through the farmers' dwell
Already several thousand miles of large and small irrigating canals have
been built and several hundred thousand acres of lands made available for
farming operations. Irrigation is an Insurance against failure of crops, be
cause success is a question only of the proper application of water to them.
The loss of a single corn or wheat crop in Nebraska, for instance, would
more than equal the cost of irrigating canals to cover the tntire state, so
impo tant is the certainty of a full crop return to any agricultural state.
The San Luis Valley will grow
Spring wheat oats, barley, peas, hops, beans,
potatoes, vegetables and all kinds of small fruits
and many of the hardier varieties of apples,
pears and all Kinds of cherries.
In the yield ot all these products it hot never been turpassdd by any other sec
tion on this continent.
Forty Acres Enough Land.
Forty acres is enough land for the farmer of ordinary means and help. Be
sides the certainty of return, the yield, under the conditions of proper irri
gation, will average far more than the 160-acre farms in the Mississippi
and Missouri Valleys, and the outlay for machinery, farming stock, pur
chase money, taxes, etc, are proportionately less. - There are a hundred
thousand acres of such lands located in the very heart of the San Luis Val
ley, all within six miles of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad, convenient
markets and shipping stations, for sale at $15 00 per acre. Most of these
lands are fenced and have been under cultivation and in many instances
have wells and tome buildings, everything ready to proceed at once to be
gin farming, A small cash payment only is required where the purchaser
immediately occupies me premises, ara long time at seven per cent. Inter
est is granted for the deferred payments.
A Specially Low Homeseekers Rate
will be made you, your family and friends.. A large party will leave for the
Valley on Sept. 1st, 11th, 25th, and Oct. 9th. Should you settle on these
lands the amount you paid for railroad fare will be credited to you on your
payments; and remember the land is perfectly and thoroughly irrigated, and
the land and perpetual water rights are sold you for less than other sections
ask for simply the water rights without the land. Ao better lands exists any
where on earth. For further particulars, prices of land, railroad fare, and all
