THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT , 5 warmine up tne uanaiaates lor me uu- beraatorial Contest THE SON OF U- P- A HOT FAVORITE Nickel John's Char-ces of Winning Spoiled by Jockey Slawter Hickory Tom's Pathetic Effort to Get in the Race Apa Has the Mount on the Omaha's Mayor Republican Beach, Xeb., Feb. 13. Special Correspondence by Private Wire. AH the candidates for the great republican gubernatorial derby of 1896 are now on the track and the race ia about to begin. The scene at thp track- side this afternoon has been inspiring, as the favorites have shown themselves in front of the stand in the preliminary warming up for the event of the season, Every entry has his backers on the stretch and admirers are pulling hard for the favored sons iu the grand stand. Here are the entries: SINGLE DA8B. 1. Mayor(orange),brefdingotitraced; owned by the Omahae; Jockey. Apa selling 6 to 1 2. Ulurauams reu, wnire ana oiue), bj Corporation: owned by Ma jors; Jockey, Gar selling 4 to 1 3. Kichard Hebron (black ),by Yon nit Crowd; owned byThayer: Jockey Gold Bug Bellini? 6 to 2 for place 4.

Nickel John (red and bine), by Hand Shake; owned by Colonel Northeast; jocker.Slawter selling 10 to 1 There were very few spectators at the ring side,save stable boy 8,jockey8,tooters and interested turfmen, when NickelJohn was brought out for preliminary work at noon. Considerable surprise was evinced by these knowing ones when Had Slawter, the celebrated jockey, was put up on the back of the big son of Hand Shake and grandson of old Congress, and, plying whip and spur, danhed around the track as if mad. The cheers with which the racer was first greeted were changed to looks of chagrin on the faces of the back era of this favorite and they hastened to hedge. Last night at Tim & Rigg's Turf Exchange, Nickel John was a hot favor ite at 5 to 2, and now the bookies have run him down to 10 to 1 with no takers, Owners of other entries are laughing slyly and say Jockey Slawter has lost his cunning and shows evidences of weaken ing intellect, if nothing worse, when he brings out ayoung horse like Nickel John ' four hours before a race and puts him tnrougn worK wnicn wouia nanaicap any old weather-beaten skate, it is evi dent that Colonel Northeast's favorite will come to the scratch a tired, worn and beaten horse, ready for the blanket and the stable. Genemore, also owned by Colonel North east but under the rules governing the race which do not allow the entry of more than one horse from the same stables, entered by Auditor, is. in the pink of condition and shows the result of great care. His appearance on the track did not elicit applause as he has not at any time been considered a dange. rous factor in the race. It is quite evi dent however, that if the derby is captur ed by the Northeast stables, it must be done by Geuemore for Nickel John is al ready bors du combat. The fact re mains unconcealed that if Colonel North east had pinned his faith to one of his pair for this event, giving him the benefit of all the time and care expended on both, he would have had an excellent show of winning something, but he with drew Nickel John from the congressional aasn ana tootc iienemore out ot a minor event, which he could easily have won, in order to place botn where neither are likely to get out of the bunch, unless, as it looks now, Nickel John may drop out at trie rear to tall behind the flair. Two of the entries were withdrawn this afternoon. Quite a ripple of amusement was eaused in the grand stand when Hickory Tom, the antiqnated hero of years gone by and a relic of the past when trickery instead ot merit won races and when results were fixed long before the horses left the stables, came limping flowa in trontof the grand stand mount- ed by Russell and followed on foot by a ucoterie of the most disreputable horse- 'men whoever doped a nag. There were i 1 1 tt l if ii -r. . iticurougu anu tnurcu inn una reiper and a number of such people. A small urchin giving the name of C. Howe was arrested for throwing a stone which struck McGrough on the head. When the old dispirited horse and his followers reached the grand stand, the owner was informed that it was evident the relic was unable to make a race and would only be in the way of other starters. Hold Ridge's money was returned and the owner unbridled the hide bound old stager to graze in the track enclosure where he stands wistfully gazing at the younger horses and colts as they are warmed up for the dash. Hussell hur riedly dismounted, when Hickory Tom was ordered off the track, but was un able to find another mount. Some disappointment was created when it was announced from the jndges' stand that Morel would not start on ac count of having picked up a nail as he was leaving the stable. Several stories are going the rouuds in regard to the al leged accident and the nail story is re garded by many as a fake and some think the withdrawal of Morel was for the effect it would have on other events in which several of Mr. Lan Castor's long string of racers have been entered. Sev eral days ago good judges of horse flesh were sanguine of an easy victory by Morel, who has won out in fast company neretoiore. TheOinahas' stables have presented Mayor as their candidate for derby honors and he has received considerable backing, more on account of his jockey, Apa, than by reason of his record as a racer. Apa has an unenviable reputation among the fraternity on account of blocking and fouling and other species of crooked riding. He has been very sue cessful in some minor events, recently riding Mayor in the Municipal handicap and defeating: Public Sentiment, Kosie, BS Commercial, Reform and other local celebrities. Thu present company is plainly a little too fant for Apa'u mount however. Horttemen av M.ivnr htm hpv. erai strains of cold blood and in good company coulJn t keep the pace to the quarter pole and would throw up his tail before he finished the back stretch. With several promising youngsters like Web ester, Green, Eastbrook, and othersin the stables, it is surprising that the.Omahas should bring out a rheumatic, spavined, old quarter horse fitted for a fifty yards dash on a country road rather than for a derby race. Still the Apa followers are pleased and are making a good business for the bookies at 6 to 1. Some horse men fear that Apa has an agreement with the judges and the starter which will give theold quarter horse an advan tage, but this is denied With bandaged shanks and knee sup porters, that veteran of manv hard fought battles on the turf and the win ner of none, Our Jack was led out ou the track by Colonel Lexiugton who has giveu the mount to some mysterious looking jockey unknown to the horsemen at the track. He is supposed to be an expert as it is known the colonel has staked everything on Our Jack winning this event. "It must be to-day or never." said Col onel Lexington, and, as the son of U. I pranced down in front of the stand, he seemed to be animated by the same sentiment. ith coltish an tics, he galloped around the track and men came down the stretch with a re markable spurt just as if he was not marked "aged" on the score card. The Dawson stables, of which Colonel Lex ington has long been sole proprietor. will relieve Our Jack from further service if he does not finish a winner today. At the previous derbies Our Jack has not had the proper handling and he goes to thestart today carrying half the backing of the talent, a prime favorite at 3 to 2. lhat proinisingyoungster.lliehard He bron, will be started by Thayer, and is being backed heavily tor a place, his owners being satisfied if he finishes sec ond without injuring his chances for future derbies. fince the withdrawal of Hickory Tom. his followers have turned to Claradams who has been entered by Majors for this event, the old cavalry horse is carrying Gar.the jockey, who has landed more win ners on this track than any other rider. I he warming up has been finished and the starter has sent the bunch up the stretch lor the score. Jasper Dick OPEN WIDE THE GATE. Let All Reformers Come ia and Elect a Patriotic President. Help David City, Neb., Feb. 9, 1876 Editor Independent It is with great satisfaction that I note your guiding hand in the editorial management of the Nebraska Independent. Apropos of the people's party national convention at St. Louis July 22, let me say that I am in favor of taking down all the bars for the admission of other reform organizations, but am not in fa vor of tearing down the whole fence. Or, if other organizations do not see fit to enter the populist fold through the bars, then I am in favor of the different organizations joining forces on the money question on a proportional repre sentation electoral ticKet, agreeing on a candidate if possible. If not, each or ganization to express its preference for president, with the understanding lhat all of the electoral votes of the allied forces shall be cast for the candidate of the organization casting the largest pro portional vote. 1 believe that any lion est mem per or any or these retorm or ganizations would prefer the candidate of any one of the reform parties for presidentto a republican or democrat, and that upon this plan, if not upon the former, a successful union can be effected. The populist party has been raised to its present proportions by infinite labor and sacrifice on the part of its members The money question is but one of its most important tenets; and as the other reforms will be just as necessary after the crime of ninety-three is avenged as before -it was perpetrated, it should not suffer itself to be disorganized; and not only must not allow its organization to stand in the way of accomplishing this one essential reform, but must take the lead in bringing it about. Hopefully yours, Fred A. Allen And if we wait until the gold bugs in crease the army -we may not be able to free the country from the domination of the money power without revolution. The people of the west and south are the only ones that ean stem the combina tion of the English gold syndicate Peanut Economists We are somewhat grandiloquently told that the "business men are all for "sound money." According to the av erage newspaper idea no one is a "busi ness man" unless heisengaged in lending money, speculating on change, or buying and selling goods. The man who raises peanuts and sells them, is only a com mon farmer, not supposed to know-much of anything.' but the dapper little fellow who buys the peanuts and sells them again, is a "business man. lie knows all about finance that is, he and his banker together do.

He W rites a Letter in which He Preaches Populism to an English Lore. "No. 4 Salvage Gardens, Ixinpok.Nov, 14, 1895. "To the Right Honorable, the Earl Winchilsea My Lord: 1 must respect fully tell you that the cause of the far mers' embarrassment lies simply in the low prices with which the gold using world is afflicted, and the only cause oj the fall in prices is a change in purchas ing power of gold. The Western nations are using money, each ortace of whit- buys twice as much wheat, or land, or cotton, or wool as it did 20 years ago i. e., our money, costs us (in commodi ties) twice as much as it did. But whils we four hundred millions of white men are full of difficulties and gloom (exce such as are bankers, or lenders, or an nuitants) because we have to buy ou gold at twice its value, there are eigh hundred millions of Bilver-userswho have prospered and waxed fatter and fatter for many years past. Never before, was there universal pros perity throughout Asia, and in countries like Mexico, which are on thesilverstand- ard. Their imports and exports increase by strides. Their laborers are full of em ploynient at good wages. Their farmers make high prices, cultivation isextended, Manufacturers prosper, populations in crease, I here never was such abundant prosperity before; and why this univer sal prosperity t because their money is supplied to them at half price. The low price of silver explains it all; and so long as gold is artificially raised m value(pur causing power), so long will the Euro pean nations suffer from depression and perennial losses. So long as silver is al lowed to remain artificially cheap, bo long will the SOU millions of brown and yellow men fatten at our expense. Our depression is the measure of their pros perity. Our losses are the correlative of of their gains. Nay, indeed, our loss is the actual cause of their large gains, Why should such astupid state of tilings be allowed to continue? Every student of history knows that the principal money of the world from the very beginning of time has been si ver. Gold never was more than a sub sidiary money until England, unfortuna tely adopted it as her sole standard, in 181b, and though no harm was done as long as the demand for gold was only limited one, yet as nation after nation has stupidly adopted it during .the past twenty-five years, the enormously in creased demand has had the effect which an increasad demand has upon anything. it has sent up its value (purchasing power), until at length, the price of gold which used to buy one sack of wheat now buys two sacks. There is nothing else in it. Superficial numbskulls sav there is over production, but this is all nonsense, ihere never has been any in creased production of farmers' products, except to keep pace with the larger de rriands of rncreasing population. uod provides us with two metals which, so long as man had tho common sense to use them both as money, kept pace with the expansion of trade, the opening up of new countries, and the in crease of population. Just as we wanted twice the money to keep pace with an age of wonderful invention, of rapidly increasing transactions, and of great material progress, the stupid, short sightedness of mankind decided to cast aside the more useful aud the more indis pensible of metals. This alone is respon sible lor the terrible fall in prices, which robs debtors, producers, and workers, in order to enrich bankers, lenders and annuitants. Alfred Newton Organise a Great Army. Clahks, Neb., Feb. 10, 1896. Editor Independent: I have taken our state paper ever since J. Burrows started the Farmers Alliance, and to say that I am pleased with the consolida tion of the Wealth Makers and Indepen dent would only be putting it mildly. I believe we now not only have the best state paper we ever had, but the best in the United States. Every lover of inde pendence from the rule of the bankers association of London aud New York should take and read the Independent. So long as you continue in your pre sent course, you will be engaged iu a God given work. The work of denounc ing and exposing corruption in high places, and in fighting the battles of the toiling millions as against the encroach ments of capital, of trying to better the condition of suffering humanity, by stav ing tne nana or the oppressor, and it is in my judgment the grandest work in whioh man can engage; and is the same work which was started nearly nineteen hundred years ago among the hills of Judea, by the lowly Nazarene. I, for one, am enlisted in this warfare for life, and I know that Nebraska has many thous ands more like myself. Bat if we suc ceed in this state the coming election we must organize in every county and town ship; and while holding fast to all our principles, be broad minded and liberal enough to hold out the right hand of fellowship to all who desire reform in politics, and whfc are desirous of over throwing the worship of the British golden calf, and returning to the money of the constitution, both silver and trold at the ratio of 16 to 1, regardless of the actions of other nations. Yes, brothers, let us organize the grandest army of re formers Nebraska has ever seen, lavintr aside all party prejudice and standing shoulder to shoulder, let us march to the polls in November and do our part to overthrow the English gold standard. which is throttling our industries and making millions of our fellowmen home less.

Place of Oreenbaoks The following are some remarks made by Senator Stewart and Gen. Warner at the silver conference at Washington Gen. Warner: Borrowing must come to an end sometime in any country, and ii borrowing is rolled on, when that stops Hie Kuu Bi,..mru m gone. i lie aamm- istration is plunging the country in debt in nine oi peace at a rate that would be alarming even in the time of war. 'When is this to stop? Will there not be the same necessity of borrowinc after we have borrowed two hundred or fivo hun dred or a thousand millions more? for all that we borrow will leave us as the ast hundred and sixty millions have left us. Senator Stewart: May I siiccest how they could do that? Mr. Warner: Certainly. Senator Stewart: Borrowiucr alone will not do it. Lveu the Cleveland adminis tration ought to know enough to know that. (Laughter.) But already they have plunged the country intoadebt that seventy millions of people will have to pay the interest upon. They have $178.- 000,000 of cash balance, and they pro pose to sell $200,000,000 of bonds this year and put the proceeds in the treas ury. Thoy cannot get legislation to de stroy the greenbacks. Cleveland and Sherman both oppose that. The plan is to load the country with debt, buy cur rency, and lock it up, iu order to make prices lower. Mr. Warner: I had intended to refer further on to that. That is the only way to maintain tne goia sranaara. i hat is, contract the currency and force down prices. But let me remind the seuator that while they propose to retire the greenbacks they propose to allow ten thousand banks in the country to supply tne place of the greenback currency, not by the million but the hundreds of mil lions. This currency will as effectually expel gold as any other form of paper, a: j i . . i , - -. . oince xiiai question nas oeen raised. I may as well speak of it here for a sin gle, moment. If there ever was any question pertaining to money settled, it is that the issue and control of a paper cur rency cannot be safely left to discretion of banks. Iu the discussions that took place during the half century preceding and following the act of 1844 in Eng land, the conclusion was finally almost unanimously reached that even the Bank ot. England alone could not be entrusted with the discretionary power to issue paper currency. Therefore, they established a department of issue and laced it under strict regulations of law. They said the issue of paper currency cannot be left to discretion, and above ail not to private interests, When banks have the power to issue paper mouey, by what principle are they governed in issuing it? By none but their own interests. As John C, laihoun said, the power to control the money of the country carries with it control over the value ot all the prop erty of the country. The proposition, therefore, to destroy the greenbacks, ana men lurn over the issue and con trol of paper currency to banks, will not help matters, but only make them worse.

How His Banker Agent Engulfed our Country in Commercial Ruin. Wayne, Neb., Feb. 8, '96 editor Independent: A few day ago received from the National Bimetallic Union of 134 Monroe St., Chicago, a copy of "A History of the Panic of 1893, Its Organization and Methods." The ttle book of 64 pages, with an adden- un of 13 pages by the publishers, is an authentic statement of facts that are ap-. palling to read. During the years 1893- many of our populist papers kept the bank circulars of '93 standing in their columns. Though these were known to be genuine, there were few who could be- ieve them to be true. But the publica tion ou. vv. MiucKers little book more than proves the conspiracy of the Bank 'residents of Wall Street with President Cleveland and Secretary Carlisle and Conrad Jordan to give the grand object esson of national Bank power over the people of the United States. The little booklet needs to be read to fully under stand the depth of treasonable plotting entered into by these parties. Senator illman's pitchfork work is mild punish ment to what these traitors and conspir ators have merited. J. W. Shuckers was the private secre tary of Salmon P. Chase, while the latter was secretary of the treasury under Pres ident Lincoln, lie has made himself fa miliar with the details of this worse than Catalinian conspiracy. The paragraphs are marked in Roman numerals irom 1. to iA and are a most pointed arraignment of the parties by name. Any one desiring this detail of the horrible plot to engulf onr country in commercial ruin from 1893 to the present and for the future, can obtain the book at 25c as The Bimetallic Series No. 1, or quarterly, $ 1 per year.
