JOHN SHERMAN'S CUNNING
How the Sly Old Deceiver Manipa
Uted the English Lanufce-
It was often remarked on the floor of
tit senate during the silver session that
any financial proposition, from the un
limited issue of paper money to the de
struction of aii legal tender money, could
bs proved to be "sound finance" by
extracts from the speeches of John Sher
man. He made a speech of that charac
ter ta the senate the other day. Hon.
EL F. Bartine makes a running comment
00 one sentence in that speech which is
picy reading. After quoting the sen
tence in full, he quotes it again, inter
Jocting a few remarks as he goes along,
Iter the following fashion:
'' "Our system, when cured of a few de
lects," (What defects?) "developed by
time," (how?) "founded upon the bime
tallic coinage of gold and silver," (what
does be mean by bimetallic coinage?)
maintained at par with each other,
(how?) "with free national banks estab
lished in every city or town of import
ance in the United States," (What does
be mean by "free?" Does he mean exempt
from taxation?) "issuing their notes, se
cured beyond doubt by United States
bonds or some equivalent security,"
(Where are they to get the bonds, and
what would be equivalent security?) "re
deemable on demand in United States
notes," (What kind of notes?) "and the
issue of an amount of United States
notes and treasury notes equal to the
amouut outstanding," (What distinc
tion does he make between future issues of
United States notes and treasury notes?
Does he mean to add to what we have,
an equal amount, or does he merely in
tend to keep them at the present limit?)
"with provision for a ratable increase
with the increase of population," (How?
Is he really getting on the Peoples' Party
platform, or is he just talking?) "always
redeemable in coin," (What kind of
coin?) "supported by an ample reserve of
coin in the treasury," What kind of coin
and bow is the reserve to be provided?)
: "such a system" (what sys
tem?) "would make our money current
in commercial circles in every land and
clime," (that is rhetorical, but bow does
he expect to get our paper into circula
tion abroad?) "better than the best that
now exists in Europe," (What does he
meau by "better"? Does he mean dearer
of greater purchasing power? He has
believe that the
always protested to
"dearest" money is t
y is the "best,' ) "better
than that of Great Britain, which now
holds the purse strings of the world."
Aud it may be added very largely by Mr.
Sherman's help. But what does the om
nibus proposition mean? That is the
No Delphian oracle ever uttered a pro
phesy more uncertain and ambiguous
than the financial philosophy which thus
fell from the lips of the great monetary
leader of the republican party. No mat
ter what he may do during the next five
years, Mr. Sherman can point to that
passage in justification.
, Our aim from now until February, 1st
. shall be not totnuke but to get money.
We will therefore sell Suits & Coats at un
' precedented low prices. Agriculturalists
visiting Lincoln the coining week will, we
believe, save money by trading with us.

A SONQ FOR THE NEW YEAR
THAT GREAT WAVE
It ' Overtakes Another Large Firm
Tuesday of this week the largest furni
ture house in Lincoln was closed up un
der chattel mortgage by the First Na
tional Bank. The firm was Greutter &
Joers, who had been in business for a
long time and had always been consid
ered one of the strongest and most re
liable firms in the city. A few years ago
they invested in a train load of furuiture,
made a grand parade through the
streets, and began business in their own
elegant building, which is as nice as any
in the city, six stories high, 75x90 feet.
When men with the financial standing
and public confidence that these men en
Joyed cannot make a Buccess in business
there must be something radically wrong
with the financial condition of the

A Criminal Libel.
Wednesday morning the State Journal
printed the following outrageous para
graph: "Molly King, who runs a house in the
reservation, cume to the police station
last night aud applied for a warrant
against J. 11. Jones and William Decb.
She charged them with kicking in her
door and otherwise destroying her prop
erty and peace of mind."
The matter was brought to attention
of the Independent just as it was going
to press. Mr. Jones said over the tele
phone that he was not in the city on
that niRht, and the story was manufac
tured out of whole cloth. It will be
noticed that the only foundation for the
story is the unsupposed word of a noto
rious prostitute, whose oath has been
refused time and again in the courts of
The Merchants Hotel Restaurent at
the corner of P & 12th st, some time since
advertised ten cent meals. Within a few
days new tables have to be put in once

the clean table linens, white napkins, and
abundant food, all for ten cents. There
never was such a meal with such service
put up for ten cents before.

called at this office and renewed his sub
