The Independent returns hearty
thanks to numerous correspondents who
have sent words of praise, comfort and
hope to the editor and manager. Not all
can be printed they would nearly fill the
paper but they nerve the arm and cheer
the hearts of those who have a very great
burden to bear in undertaking to publish
a state populist paper with every corpo
ration and monied interest against us.

all printed, they have not been written in

One of the magazine writers asks
"What is the ethical relation between
corporations and the state?" That is
the first intimation that ever appeared in
print that ethics ever came within a
thousand miles of the corporations.
Economic forces are not automatic or
natural. They are human, directed and
put in force by human intellects. This
fatalistic theory of prices, as something
beyond the control of man is wholly
false, and the people will find it out some

publican country weeklies write about
silver mine owners, one would be led to
believe that they never heard of a gold

The Independent pities you.
It ib about time for the Hon. John M
Thurston to again rise in the United
States senate and say: "Mr. President,
my latnea was killed in the civil war,
For that reason, I have an inalienable
right to hold office."
ASSOCIATED PRESS THICKS.
The trouble with a lot of pop editors
is that they will persist in taking for the
truth much of what is sent out by the
Associated press liars. For instance,
this sentence, concerning the action at
St. Louis, has set a lot of them half wild.
"The people's party is expected to in
dorse the nominee of the silver party."
Now let an old newspaper man explain
such writing as this sentence. "It is
expected." That does not say who
expects. No one is responsible. It is
simply a trick of the trade. A good
many of us know how to do that sort of
writing. About every bowl that has
come from populists about "selling out"
and all that kind of thing, has had its
start In just such writing as the above
sentence printed in the goldite papers.
If it had been stated that Taubeneck,
Butler, Donnelly and Weaver "expected
the people's party to indorse the nomi
nees of the silver party." then there
would have been something to howl
about, and the Independent would
have raised its voice and roared until it
could have been heard from Maine to
California. But instead of doing that,
the editor only smiled when be saw it
and threw the paper on the floor.

A SENATORIAL PREVARICATOR,
Quite recently. In the United States senate,
Beuator Nelson of Minnesota, gave the silver
men of the senate what goldbug papers are
pleased to call an "object lesson."
He held up a standard silver dollar coin of the
United States in one hand and In the other hand
he held up to view two Mexican sliver dollars.
He then proceeded to state that with the
United States silver dollar he could buy two
Mexican stiver dollars, and, Btriking a Henry Ir
ving attitude, asked the reason why.
Then he answered his own question by tragic
"Because there Is a gold dollar behind It."
The dependent remarked sometime
ago that when one got well acquainted
with the goldite senators he would find
them to be just common every day liars.
Now Nute Nelson knew that there was no
gold dollar behind that silver dollar, and
that it was standard money not redeem
able in any other kind of money, and the
reason, and only reason, that it is at a
parity with gold is because it is an un
limited legal tender for all debts except
when otherwise provided in the contract.
This assertion of Nute Nelson is the
same as made by J. R. Webster in a com
munication to the Lincoln Independent
some time ago. The offer made by that
paper to pay Mr. Webster a fee of ten
dollars if he would point out the statute
which authorized the redemption of silver
dollars in any other kind of money still
holds good. Mr. Webster has not called
for the money and never will. Neither
has he written that he was mistaken and

Beries of economic works written bv A
C. Fisk, to be published monthly.
The series consists of discussions by
three statesmen at Washington on the
economic condition of the republic, and
as the author says in the introduction,
"It is the purpose of these statesmen to
remain in session until they have finished
their task, and relief for the toiling mill
ions of America is obtained by proper
This first volume is practically a his
tory of Ihe financial legislation of the
United States from the time "Wampum
was universally used" down to the pres
ent day. It is very interesting to the
average reader to learn that "as late as
1645, judgments of courts were made
puyable in strings of beads, which were
received for taxes until 1649."
The book is written in simple, concise
language, and bristles with interesting
facts and figures and dates. It is rare
that a book of this description is inter
esting to the average reader, but "States
men Three" is one of these exceptions,
It forms a valuable compendium of the
monetary legislation of this country
and a farmer or workman can turn to it
at any moment for reference as to dates
and figures, which are usually only to be
had by digging for them in the libraries,
The manual workers of this country have
seldom the leisure, or where they have
the leisure as in the case of the farmer
during the winter months, cannot get to
the libraries to make investigations.
This series will be welcomed by the
working classes of the country for this
reason were there no other, but as has
been before said, it is exceptionally inter
A TOUGH JUDGE.;
The city council of Nebraska City
passed unanimously a resolution declar
ing in effect that Judge Chapman is a
perjurer and falsifier. It appears that
Judge Chapman made an affidavit to
which the council replied by resolving:
"That we denounce the statements con
tained in the affidavit of ex-Judge Chap
man, as above set forth, as untrue and
malicious, as having no foundation in
THEY WENT TOGETHER.
More than a year ago the editor of
The Independent sent out an article
from Washington, which was widely
printed in the reform press, telling what
would be done when the senate elected a
president pro tempore. Last week the
august members of that body proceeded
to do just what he said they would do.
The democrats made a nomination and
then withdrew it, so that Fryewas elested
viva voce. It takes eighteen to call for
the yeas and nays in the senate, and as
there are only six populists they could
not put these fusion boodlers on record.
The g. o. p. and the d. o. p. went together
solid, so as to preserve tne succession in
a gold bug, provided that Cleveland and
Stevenson should change their residence
to a warmer climate before another pres.
ident was elected, ihe gold bugs never
fail to provide for all contingencies.
THURSTON IS THERE BY FRAUD
John U. P. Thurston was for free silver
all the time until he was safely landed in
the United States senate. Then he was
a goldbug. In regard to this the Bee
What John M. Thurston said three years ago
about silver is of no moment. What Senator
Thurston does in the United Stoteglsenate as the
representative of Nebraska In 1896 Is ot conse
quence. The opinion ot wise men change. Those
of fools never.
J That is the goldite standard of moral-
ality. A man can go before the people
and advocate certain principles and
promise to help enact them into law and
after securing an election upon such
promises, violate every one of them and
answer back, "The opinions of wise men
change, those of fools never."
Every one knows that if Thurston had
announced that he was for the gold
standard and against free silver, he
never could have been elected to the sen
ate. He is there by fraud and deception
He cannot honestly hold the office for
one hour. Among men ot honor he is
FOR A MESS OF POTTAGE.
There is going around Lincoln a young
man, who every day watches on the
streets for promising victims. By noon
he has made the acquaintance ot halt a
dozen farmers or workingmon. He in
vites them to take dinner with him and
they all go into a restaurant and sit; at
one table, if there are not too many of
them, and they have a good social time,
Then the young man, in an incidental
way, makes a few remarks about "sound
money," while they are feeling good over
their dinner, and gives them a few docu
ments written by the best trained intel
lects that money can hire.
It is probable that this thing is being
done all over the United States. Millions
are at stake for the gold bugs and bond
holders in this campaign. They have
millions to put into the fight and the
brightest intellects to say where it shall
go. it is the great oatue ot civilization.
They evidently count on the fact that
human nature is always essentially the
same, and that now, as lour thousand
years ago, the nungry win sen tneir
birthright for a mess of pottage.
WARNER'S LETTER TO FARMERS.
Take time to read carefully the letter
to farmers by Gen. A. J. Warner, printed
on the first page of this issue of The In
dependent. It will take some thinking
to understand it, but when you once
thoroughly comprehend it, you will have
mastered some of the fundamental prin
ciples of the science of political economy
The doctrine there laid down is the teach
ing of all standard writers on political
economy from Ricardo to the present
time. It is what is said by John Stuart
Mill, Prof. Jevons, Prof. Fawcett, Mc-
Leod, John Knox, Adam Smith; Gen
Francis A. Walker, and every other
writer whose works are considered au
The populists have to sustain them in
their theory of money every standard
writer from Aristotle to John P. Jones
It is sometimes said that a scientific
knowledge of the theory and function of
money is easy to obtain. But it is not
easy. Une can no more get a ciear iaea
of it by reading carelessly a work on
political economy than he could get
clear idea of the science of mathematics
by taking up an algebra, a text book on
geometry, or a calculus and carelessly
reading it through. Therefore we say.

THE JOURNAL'S CONNIPTIONS
The old State Journal had several con
niption fits on last Sunday about this
paper, a good deal of its editorial page
being devoted to the immense circulation
of the Independent. Its yarns about
Governor Holcomb, Warden Leidigh, or
any one else guaranteeing to put a cer
tain number of Independents in circu
lation are simply lies, made out of
whole cloth. It has a good circulation
but it got it by the combination of two
papers, and it is increasing its circula
tion all the time, because the people lik
it and say that it is the best paper in

HURRAH FOR JOHN P. JONES!
It must at least have dawned upon the
very dullest silverite that the only place
where bis vote will count for anything
toward the free coinage of silver is in the
populist party. Populists in the senate
and populists in the house fight. They
don't play the tactics of King George's
men, march up the hill and march down
again, as the free silver republicans do.
They march up there and then fight.
They tack a free coinage bill onto
every piece ol general legislation, and
they tack it on with six inch, wrought
irou spikes, drive them through and
clinch them down on the other side,
They are doing no monkey work. They
mean business every time.
Senator Jones has brought the tariff
bill, that passed the house under the
whip of Torn Reed, out of the committee
with free and unlimited coinage spiked
onto it, against the vote of every free
silver republican on the committee.
Hurrah for the populist party and free
The State Journal is very much trou
bled about the smells around the cell
house in the penitentiary. Who is re
sponsible for the smells there? The re
publican boodle ring that built it with no
sanitary arrangements whatever. Three
hundred men forced to use buckets in
stead of civilized sanitary conveniences,
bound to create some unpleasant
odors. The State Journal was more in
terested in "stone plugged to size" when
that infernal cell house gang were build-
ng that place than it was in thecreation
of bad smells. Ihe penitentiary is
cleaner, in better condition, and is under
better discipline than it has ever hereto
fore been. Whatever bad smells there
are there, are the old stinks left by the
ring of boodlers who built the cell house.
They are republicun smells.
Poor men are never benefited by hard
hard times and falling prices, but many
of the rich men are. The rich man is in
a position to buy his supplies in the
wholesale market. It is a well known
fact that wholesale prices have fallen
much more than retail.' Wheat for ex
ample, has lost more than half of its val
ue, while the poor man's loaf is nearly as
dear as it ever was. The reason is that
between the producer and the retail con
sumer stands an army of middle men,
each with his hand in the grab-bag, and
each bent on keeping his profits at the
highest possible point.
rp nil thn nsHininft nerformances a
United States senator ever engaged in,
that one of John U. P. Thurston's, in in
troducing a bill to pension all the ex-
slaves in the United States is the most
stupid. A government with a permanent
pension list larger than the cost of sus
taining the German standing army, and
going into debt $200,000,000 a year, is
a nice shape to go into the negro
pension business. Thurston is a great
statesman, isn't he?
In the degrading social conditions in
which we live, which are almost wholly
plutocratic, the rewards of accumulated
wealth in power, praise and luxury areso
great that men of the best intellects find
in the career of money making an oppor
tunity for the exercise of the most splen
did abilities. The great prizes once were
found in literature, in the law, in medi
cine. But the only thing the world now
PHtfipms in accumulated wealth. It is de
grading the race, and bringing destruc
tion upon nations. The mission of the
populist party is to stop the worship of
The republicans of South Dakotah
nominated and elected a man for su
preme judge who was under indictment
for robbery. There was nothing remark
able about that, however. That was
according to the eternal fitness of
things. This same Judge Kellam re
signed the other day. That was a re
markable act for a republican office
holder. Two charges of rape against
him may have had something to do with
the resignation. Republican judges are
a holy lot, all taken together.
A western man, who was present at
Washington when that great populist
document was read and adopted by the
silver conference on January 22d, said:
"It was read by Senator Jones and never
did he appear to better advantage. He
seemed inspired by the occasion, and
the clear-cut, epigrammatic sentences fell
from his lips with splendid effect. Every
clause was applauded, and at the close of
the reading the whole conference rose as
one man and cheered with the wildest
The goldites in the senate say they ar
tired of academic discussion. They, on.

how to guide the ship of state. They
have no use for "scholars" or "econo

the bridge of aa Atlantic liner say, he was
under no obligations to mathematicians,
astronomers and physicists for the knowl

James II. Lockhart, chairman of the
populist county committee of Door Co.t
Wis., whose post office is Maplewood
Wis., asks The Independent where he
can get a Populist paper published in the
Bohemian language. lie says there is a
large settlement of Bohemians near him
many of whom are constantly asking
him where they can get such a paper. If
any one knows of such a paper please in
form this office or Mr. Lockhart.
About $51,000 of the taxpayers' money
of this state money bought with 10 cent
oats, 12 cent corn, and 85 cent wheat,
will be distributed among republican
weekly papers this fall by Secretary of
State Piper, for printing the constitu
tional amendments to be submitted to
the vote of the people, not one of which
will be adopted. That is the way repub.
lican boodlers work the taxpayers.
Richard Klattke murdered himself
and whole family, consisting of six per

the third act of the kind that has occurred
in that city within the last few months,
the others being Fritz Hall man and Jens

the same, viz., the impossibility of get

If refusing to vote either of the old party
tickets and voting the populist ticket
entitles a man to be called a poDulist,
then that committee stands five popu
lists, two republicans, and two demo
crats. We fancy they will not swallow
Men once thought that if they planted
corn or wheat, watched it, watered it,
waited for it, they had a pretty sure
thing, but it was never half as sure a
thing as it is now to plant gold. Dig a
hole in the ground, plant a t wenty dollar
gold piece in it, and at the end of the
year dig it up as you would potatoes,
and you have something that has in"
creased in value five per cent, without
plowing, hoeing or any labor at all.
In a recent speech Gen. Warner said:
"Gold is written on the walls of the inner
temples of both the old parties and it
can never be obliterated until the walls
themselves are broken down." Whereat
the Chicago Tribune got exceedingly
angry and abused the general for a col
umn or two. Nevertheless it is all too
true. The populists found it out a long
time ago. '
The house committee on postoffices
and post roads is going to try to repeal
our present liberal postage laws, so as to
stop the circulation of so much literature
at one cent a pound. The gold bugs own
the telegraph and now they want to con
trol the postoffices. The postoffice has
been our only resource for circulating
populist books. That must be stopped,
Judge Cooley (Constl. Law, p. 307),
says: "An exclusive privilege only gives
to a franchise additional value as prop
erty, and all property is subject to be
taken and appropriated to public use on
making payment therefor." Now, what
is to hinder any city taking gas, electric
light, water, or street franchises and
making them public property?
Hainer says he is "against free silver
16 to 1 as an academical proposition."
To talk for free silver in Nebraska is polit
ical, to talk or vote for it in congress is
academical, and academical knowledge
or discussion is useless in congress.
Hainer is a genius, now isn't he?
The Independent will advocate the
nomination of Willie Peebles for congress
in the Third district. He is just the kind
of a man the republicans ought to nomi
nate to keep up the eternal fitness of
things in a boodle party.
Thurston's bombastic "maiden speech"
is getting rough handling from the lite
rary fraternity down east. Even the
great gold bug journals like the Boston
Transcript, poke fun at it. It was all
sham, tinsel . and show. There was not
one line of genuine manhood in it from
beginning to end.
The goldite editors are making sar
castic remarks about Tillman's one eye.
If the Cyclops of the senate had two
eyes what might he not see and say?
The goldite ought to thank God that he
has only one eye instead of making sar
castic remake about it. ,
Valentine got badly left in his candi
dacy for sergeant-at-arms of the senate.
He hadn't any more sense than to go
around Washington two years ago say
ing that he was in favor of free silver.
That's what did him up.
The sugar trust faction of the republi
can party who are for Meiklejohn for
governorwith Brad Slaughter at the
head had a round up at Omaha last
Monday night. Meiklejohn remarked to
a reporter that "be disliked making -
another campaign in the Third district,
with its attendant uncertainties, recog
nizing that the third candidate was hi '
salvation in the last race." Meiklejohn
has sense enough to know that a popu
list will be elected to congress from the
Third district this fall and therefore he
did not propose to waste his time and
money in a vain effort in that district.
He thinks that the sugar trust's aid will
give him a better chance at the gover
norship. There he has no sense at all.
The old party boodlers and office grab.
bers in the senate have run against a
snubbing post set up by the wiley popu
list. To change the officers of the senate-
they are forced to take a vote. The pop
senators have nominated their own can
didates and are going to stand by them
Therefore neither of the old boodlers can
elect, and they think that a public record
of the unity of the two parties just at
this time is not a good thing to make..
The populists are twisting their tails
with a split stick again.
The American eagle is a great bird..
He spreads his wings from sea to sea,.,
dips his tail in the lakes and his beak in
the Gulf of Mexico, but when he wants--
to preserve his credit he has to sell bonds
or go begging with drooping tail and'
dragging wings to the door of old Roths
childs banking house in London. . And
so it seems that he is not much of a bird
after all just at present. But one of
these days he will stick his tallons in old
Rothschilds scalp, carry him off, hang
him on the north pole and leave hinv
there to freeze dry.

west have no greater enemy. Boone
