Gen. A. J. Warner in an article in the

If the citizens of this state could be
truthfully informed of the state of affairs
in regard to the penitentiary there would
be a protest which even the thieves at
the state house would heed. When Th
Independent says that Churchill and
Russell are planning a robbery, it means
exactly what it says without any quali
fication. If such a thing bad been at
tempted before the whole public admin
istration had been honeycombed with
corruption, the villains would have been

Churchill and Russell, the State Jour
nal and other republican papers, which
by their open advocacy or by their si
lence are urging on these villains to rob
the state of money that has to be bought
with ten cent oats and twelve cent corn,
do not even pretend that it would be a
saving to put a $3,000 agent in control
of the penitentiary.
It is open, unadulterated stealing, and
nothing but stealing.
If tbe men and the papers engaged in
this dirty business do not like this state
ment they can make the most of it.
The convicts in the penitentiary are
all employed and tbe state is receiving
forty cents a day for their labor. There
is good order and discipline among
them, a superintendent is not needed,
and to hire one and put him in control
of the prison at a salary of f 3,000 a
year is stealing? The kind of a man
that Churchill and Russel want to put
in charge of the penitentiary to handle
its funds can be learned from the follow
ing official documents.

Now there are living witnesses w ho will
swear that when A. C. Beemer took the
two prisoners Gruveley and Paiin from
the penitentiary to the court house in
Lincoln, that he had no guard and hired
no conveyance, but took them unguard

The man who made the above oath and
received $7.60 for that service is the man
whom Churchill and Russell appointed as
superintendent to take eutiie charge of
the penitentiary and to handle all the
money belonging to it. Thereaeon that
Al. Beemer has not been arrested and
brought to trial for these crimes is be
cause the prosecuting officers are all Re
publicans. There should be some citizen
patriotic enough to file an information
and secure his arrest, for the above thefts
are onlv samples of many others that
can be found on the public records.
But the crimes of AU Beemer are not
greater than those of Churchill and Rus
sell, although they are of a different
form, as will be seen from the following
When Warden Leideigh took charge of
the plant on the 8th ot August, after
Dorgan was bought out. and the stuff on
hand turned over to him, he found every
thing in ruins. All the steam boilers ex
cept one, were condemned by the boiler
inspector, although Broatch had paid an
enormous price for them. Only steam
enough could be made to run the broom
factory and harness shop.
The board authorized the warden to
make the necessary repairs so as to start
the machinery and put the convicts to
work. When the warden uudertook to
buy the repairs Churchill and Russell put
a notice in the papers forbidding all
persons to sell him anything, and did all
they conld conceive of to prevent him
starting the machinery,
Notwithstanding the notice, the West
ern Supply Co. finally furnished the
warden the needed material
The boilers bad to be practically mads
over. All the steam piping had to be re
newed. Every cock and Joint was leak
With almost superhuman energy tbe
warden went to work to put the plant
into condition so that the convicts conld
ot to work and save the. tax payers
ost ol their malntw 1 'dlensss.
To prevent this, t'burcbiil and Russell
refused, not only to pay for these sup
plies, but also refused to pay the em
ployes of the prison, and for five months
tbe warden, guards and attendants of
all kinds have not received a cent of pay.
The people of Nebraska ought to remem
ber these men, not one of whom forsook
bis post, although many of them and
their families were in great need. With
ceasless vigilance they kept guard over
the convicted fellons committed by the
courts to their charge.
The prison is now in excellent condi
tion. There were yenterday, 174 con
victs at work for various companies.
They are earning for the state 40 cents a
day. Many more are employed in doing
the work of the prison in the laundry, in
tbe kitchen and various other duties.
The cooper shop, the broom factory, tbe
harness shop and tbe stove foundry are
all running at their fullest capacity.
What good could a superintendent do
there? The contractors who hire the men
are satisfied. There was never as good
discipline in the prison before. Every
cent 1b being saved to the state that it is
possible to save, a fact that no one de
nies. What do Churchill and Russell
want to appoint an agent for? For no
other eeason than to get hold of the
wages of the convicts and tbe 1 100,000
appropriated by the legislature. It is
the most bare faced plot to rob ever
planned by conscienceless politicians. And
they say they are going on with it in
spite of the decision of the supreme
court. Was ever a state cursed with
such a gang such as these?
8TAND UP FOB NEBRASKA
The World-Herald, the State Journal,
the Bee and all other great papers are
making desperate efforts to induce immi
gration. Now while the Populists stand
first and all the time for the growth of
this state and for all the people in it, and
all who shall come to it,he knows that tbe
plan pursued by those papers must fail.
Advertisements of our wonderful natural
resources the healthfulness of ourclimate
and all that may be said upon those
subjects will not induce men to come,
unless they can see a prospect of making
a home for themselves, their wives and
Immigrants would pour into this state
by the thousands if there was a reason
able prospect for a living and a Bpot free
from debt where the aged workers, after
a life of toil could spend their declining
years in comfort and peace. The way to
induce immigration is to make condi
tions that will produce such results.
With oorn at 12 cents per bunhel, oats
10, and wheat 35, immigrants would not
come to this state. Why should they
come? At those prices they could per
haps, by incessant toil, maintain a bare
existence. But with corn at 40 cents,
oats at 30 and wheat at $1.00, they
would people tbe bare prairies, of the
state in a short time.
As it is now, men are leaving the state.
Colonization societies are organizing
everywhere, to go south, to the moun
tain states and to Old Mexico, and they
will continue to go as long as prices con
tinue to fall.
The men and the papers who have
stopped immigration to this state and
are driving away some of those who
have been here for years, are the men
who have enabled the railroads to take
all "the traffic will bear." They are
those who have sent men to Congress to
vote more bonds and increase taxation,
the men who put corporation attorneys
in the United States Senate and the men
who have make the dollar dear and corn
wheat, beef and pork so cheap that a
man cannot make a living producing
them. The great dailies are pursuing a
policy that tends to the depopulation ot
this state, while they cry, "stand up for
Nebraska." They are the men who ruin
business, break our banks and wreck our
"We must restore confidence." "Busi
ness will not revive until confidence is re
stored." "Confidence is the source of all
prosperity," All of these quotations are
from recent editorials in the great dailies.
It iB a very terse way of stating the ex
act opposite of the truth. The one thing
that has ruined the people of this United
States is too much confidence. Peo.
pie had confidence in Mosher's bank
What was the result? They are im
poverished. The people had confi
dence in the Republican party. It load
ed them with public and railroad debts.
They had confidence in the Democratic
party. It prooeeded to further bond us
and the children that come after us to
Rothschilds and Wall Street. Still mill
ions of poor deluded mortals are bearing
about with them unlimited amounts of
confidence, while they steadily march
down the broad road to serfdom and
slavery. Out with your confidence. It is
the ruin of the world and not its salva
CAN'T DO IT ALL
Mr. Edward Stout Atwater, president
of tbe Farmers and Manufacturers Bank
ot Poughkeepsie, N. Y., sendB the editor
of this paper a letter containing "a plan
to secure an adequate and safe circula
tion for the United States." He says he
has also sent a copy of his plan to the
finance committee of the U. S. Senate,
He wants us to urge its adoption. Well
we can't do it. It is about as unsafe and
tnadeauate a plan as a banker could
dream out after a big dinner at Del
monicoa. , , j
He wants the banks to furnish all the
paper money, mat is a government
function and is no part of the banking
business, and the government can't turn
it over to them any more than it can the
army and navy.
He wants to base his currency on the
debt of the nation, state, cities, counties
and school districts. We can't agree to
that either. The Populists are going to
get hold of this government pretty soon
and they will make such conditions that
these debts, after a few years, will all be
paid. Then where will be his basis of
circulation? Then we don't like money
based on debt any way. We prefer to
base it, if it is to be based at all, on what
we own rather than on what we owe.
Mr. Atwater's idea is that there is to
always be a great perpetual interest
bearing debt. That's a banker's idea.
It is not ours at all. We are very sorry,
Mr. Atwater, but we can't urge your
scheme. We think it is a villainous
scheme, a scheme to rob, a scheme for
you to get interest on what you owe. In
fact, we are down on the whole plan.
THEY 00ULD NOT SEASON
A large business house in Philadelphia,
the Keen-Sutterle Co., failed on Saturday
and a whole line of other houses went
tumbling down like a row of cards, and
by night, the shoe, leather, dressed kid
and morrocco business of Philadelphia
was practically annihilated. This Mr.
Keen was one of the Philadelphians who
was red hot for the repeal of the Sherman
act, he was one 'of the chaps that took
the contract of forcing Don Cameron to
vote for tbe repeal of that act. When
Cameron asked him what business he
was in and he replied "kid and morrocco"
Cameron said, "I shall not do what yon
ask, but the bill will be repealed and
houses in your line will be among the
first to go to the wall. Very little kid
and morrocco leather will be used by the
people of the United States after the
establishment of the gold standard.
They will be too poor to buy that kind
Mr. Keen will, in his future poverty,
learn a lesson that he refused to learn in
the days of his prosperity. Experience
is an exceedingly dear school, but gold
bug fools will learn in no other. Some
of the "leading men" of Lincoln who sent
petitions to Congress asking- for the re
peal of the Sherman act, have since gone
into bankruptcy, and now walk the
streets with nothing to do and no hope
for the future. They were of the class
that can only learn by experience. They
cannot reason and logic is an unknown
science among them.
Russia has more gold than any of the
continental nations. She does not use it
as money. The fact is she puts it in (a
big vault and keeps it locked up. She
don't take any out, but she is constanaly
putting more in. The more she puts in
that vault and gets out of circulation,
the higher price she gets for her exports.
Russia uses silver and paper only for
money. The dearer she can make gold
the better it is for her, and bo she hides
every rouble of it she can get. If gold
should become so dear that two grains
of it would buy a bushel of wheat or a
barrel of coal oil, that would only help
Russian wheat and oil producers, and
ruin those of America.
Russia produces a bushel of wheat and
sells it in the London market for 60 cents
in gold which converted into Russian
money is about $1.30. The American
farmer sells a bushel of wheat in Liver
pool for 60 cents, and when he gets home
he has but 60 cents. This gives the Russ
ian farmer substantially a 100 per cent
advantage, and the dearer gold gets, the
greater the advantage would be to the
Russian farmer. There are no gold-bug
idiots in Russia. -
KID GLOVE STATESMEN
What has become of that set of egotis
tical economists who could be seen some
timesince marching up and down this
state, proclaiming in their shrill, un
cultured voices that the railroads made
Nebraska? And where is the other crowd
of silk hat, kid gloved statesmen who
proclaimed in strident tones that the
capitalists were the men who made the
state great and prosperous? Where are
these gentlemen now and what makes
them so extremely quiet?
In those days, it a farmer modestly
suggested that his work had something
to do, in some small way at least,witb the
creation of wealth, he was asked with a
sneer how he could have the egotism even
to hint that it was possible for an old
hayseed to have ideas upon so obtruse a
eublect as political economy.
Where are those silk hat, kid gloved
gentlemen now? Why are they so exceed
inirlv auiet? There has not been a word
heard from them for a year.
Under present circumstances it would
hardly do to proclaim their peculiar
vagaries. It has dawned upon the people
that the doctrines taught by the Farm
er's Alliance were right. Railroads can
not make a state. Capital cannot make
a state. Yoa might gridiron the plains
with railroads, and pile thecapital of the
Rothschilds in pur bank vaults and you
cannot have a state if the farmers can
not bring forth from the earth corn,
whnti. oata and vegetables. If the far
mer fails all fail.
What then made this state? Was
railroads and gold in the bank vaults?
Not at all It was the brains and
muscles of th hardy sons & toil who
tilled the land and brought forth wealth
from tbe bosom of mother earth.
If tbey think the railroads and capital
can make e. state and that the farmer
has nothing to do with it, let them go to
tbe deserts 'of Asia, where there are no
farmers and never will be, and try the
experiment. The drouth has taught the
people some needful lessons. Of all the
political idiots on earth, these capitalis
tic, kid glove, railroad statesmen are the
POSTAL SAVINGS BANK '
Tbe necessity' of this measure outlined
in the preamble to and platform of the
Populist party is being forced upon
many unwilling minds. Take, for in
stance, the demand for postal savings
banks. A large number of bills to estab
lish postal savings banks have already
been introduced at this session of Con
gress, some by Republicans and some by
Democrats. If we had had such a bank
in Lincoln, many a family in this city,
now suffering the most pinching poverty
and some now in actual want, would be
enjoying comfortable and happy homes
When the demand was first made, it was
only referred to by the well-to-do with
a sniff of derision. Some of these same
men are now paupers because there was
no postal savings banks. Mosher, Ault
calt and others of their ilk, have the
money of these sufferers, while they
starve and shiver. The Populists want
ed to save them, but they would not
The despicable hypocrisy of the pinch
beck patriots who assaulted Professor
Fossler, could not be more fully proved
than it has been by the failure of those
who were flaunting their patriotism so
conspicuously, to subscribe to the fund
to purchase flags to float over the school
houses. Prof. Fossler, when these old-flag-and-an
appropriation fellows attack
ed him said: "I can't vote to iucrease
the school debt, but I will subscribe five
dollars out of my pocket to help buy
flags." Then the powerful State Journal
undertook to raise the money by public
subscription and appealed to these
vaunting patriots to put uptheirmoney.
After some weeks the Journal reports
that it has in unpaid subscriptions, be
sides Prof. Fossler's five dollars, twelve
other dollars. That is the amount they
are willing to sacrifice for patriotism.
These chaps are patriots for an office or
an appropriation and nothing else.
When it means a sacrifice for the flag
they are silent.
The man who runs for an office and
fails to receive a plurality of votes and
then attempts to take the office by force
or fraud is an anarchist, and nothing but
an anarchist. If, the man who receives
the largest number of votes is not to
hold the office then our form of govern
ment is overturned.
Judge Norris failed to receive the larg
est number of votes yet he is willing to
take the office by fraud. '
W. C. Bailey of Aurora was defeated by
10 votes but be refuses to give up the
office to the man who was elected.
J. F. Baird of Chadron was defeated by
over 100 votes. He refased to give up
his office, and the Populist who was
electedbad to go in and pitch him out
by physical force.
All these men are trying to overthrow
our form of government. No other word
than anarchy will describe what they
JOHNNY DIDN'T LIKE IT.
It will do no harm to often reprint the
following resolution offered in the United
States senate by Senator Call of Florida.
Ri solved. That a select committee of five sena
tors be appointed by tbe president of the senate
who shall be charged with the dnty of investi
gating the subject of the efforts of corporations
In the state ot Florida, or ot tne president ana
directors thereof, to control the election ot mem
bers of conitiens from tbe state of Florida, or to
Influence the legislation of congress; also, to
inevstigate nnd report to the senate whether
corrnpt means, bribery, or free transportation
have been or are being used to Influence such
elections in the state of Florida; also, to Inquire
and report to tbe senate wbether tne use of sucn
lgSences or means Is consistent with the pres
ervation of the republic of the United States and
the rights and liberties ot the people, and to re
port a bill for the prevention of such practices.
It is not to be wondered at that our
senatorial Johnny did not like that at
all and did all in his power to defeat it.
He knew by what means he got into the
senate to represent Nebraska himself,
and he did not want the ways corpo
rations have of putting , their tools in
the senate exposed. The old farmers
who voted for Johnny are proud of him.
The following is the bill that nine
tenths of the American beople want en
acted forthwith, and it was introduced
by a populist, Marion Butler:
"Be it enacted by the Senate and the
House of Representatives of tbe United
States of America in Congress assem
bled, That the issuance of interest-bearing
bonds of the United States for any
purpose whatever without further au
thority of congress is hereby prohibited.'
John Clark Ridpath, LL. D., says in
the Arena for January, of our national
debt. "The people have paid and paid
for thirty years, and at the end have paid
iust this nothing." The purchasing
power of the national debt at the end of
the year 1895 is greater than it was at
the end of the year 1866. So while we
have paid $2,000,000,000 in interest, we
owe more than we did in the beginning.
Is it any wonder that ' both people and
government are ne- bankrupt?
JrDGB Bell, populist member from
Colorado, crnt in n. minuta nr an fin th
floor of the house the other dav bv the.
courtesy of some other member, and pr
ceeded to tell Tom Reed what be though
of him and his rules. Among othe
things he said, was that not since the
session opened had a populist member
been recognized by the speaker. He de
nounced the committee assignments
made by the speaker, described the
present organization and management
of the house as that of a body of
bosses, and the result, tyranny. A man
might arise in the house and address the
chair every hour of every day of the

The voters of Lincoln held one of theJ
largest and most influential meeting!
ever held in the state, and unanimously
demanded tne free coinage of silver. Tnen
the editor of the Lincoln Herald, a Clever
land-Sherman, gold bug concern, issued
from the First National bank building,
sat down and wrote: "The silver excite
ment is dying out and all efforts to
arouse the people of Nebraska will be but
a waste of energy. The people are
coming wearied of tbe populism and s7
verism and are content to await
prosperity that is sure to come with
return of good crops." Tbe gold bi
papers in this country are certainly nl
paid so much a lie for their writing.
they were, they would soon bankrupt tij
whole Rothschilds' ring.
Ma. W. J. Bryan says that tbe most
astonishing thing that he ever met with
in all his life was to see Mr. Hardy get
up in meeting and Bay that he was will
ing to drop prohibition and make a fight
for monetary reform, and Mr. Hardy
thinks that the most astonishing thing
he ever heard of was the statement of
W. J. Bryan that he was willing to vote
for a high protective tariff if this was
coupled with the free coinage of silver.
