To love your party more than your
country is treason.
Senator Feffer is booming Governor
Holcomb for president.
The silver craze is dead looks like it
inKentucky don't it?
Orover went duck shooting again last
Thursday. Now look out for another
bond issue.
The Texas papers are bragging about
their balmy spring weather, but It is all
on account of the tariff.
The average price of cows in 1870
was 131.01, in 1895 $14.00. It is all
on account of the tariff.
Thurston says that Manderson lied,
"speaking metaphorically," about a pri
vate and confldeutal interview.
The Utah Democrat prints a fine cut
of Senator Allen, with the words: "Our
next president" underneath.
The republicans now have 247 members.
They unseated a democrat from Alabama
and put in a republican last Friday.
A Few Financial S. 8 King, is
a very valuable book published by the Bi
metallic Union, 133 Monroe street Chica
SO. '
The Boston Globe sayfl: "that the world
is threatened with a flood of the yellow
metal." It is all on account of the tariff.
Our nation has given land and bonds
to build railroads, but it must not own
them. That is all on account of the tar
Trices in all gold standard countries
are tending downward no matter wheth
er they are free trade or protective, but
it is all on account of the tariff.
The populist mayor of San Francisco is
to be arrested for sending letters to con
gress on the envelopes of which were
printed the words: "CollisP. Huntington
would not steal a red hot stove."
After reading the speeches of Hoar,
Hale and Hill against the Cubans, one
could almost swear that each received
identically the same telegram, from the
Denver Road's bete noir. '
Cotton has fallen from 17. 3-10 cents
in 1890 to 7 cents in 1895, and Bill
McKinley will solemnly look a bale of
cotton in the face, roll up his eyes and
say: "It's all on account of the tariff."
The democrats are claiming that Carl
isle could actually carry his own county
in Kentucky, and that Secretary Olney,
ifhecduld not carry his own county,
could certainly carry his own precinct.
The row, the fighting, the militia,
the governor's proclamation, the whole
disgraceful affair in Kentucky only
vindicates the wisdom of the popu
list demand that United States senators
should be elected by the people and not
by the legislature.
The difference between a three centand
and a five cent street car fare is a four
per cent tax on the income of the work
ing man. Dave Hill, all the goldite plu
tocrats andthesupremecourt, think that
kind of an income tax constitutional, but
that an income tax to be paid by the
rich is unconstitutional.
Four years ago McKinleyism was sub
mitted to a vote of the people practical
ly unobstructed by side issues, (both old
parties discussed nothing but tariff) and
McKinleyism was downed by an over
whelming vote. Now they say the peo
pie want it. They are badly mistaken.
There is not an economist in the whole
world who will endorse the theory of
banks of issue. Lord 0 verstone expresses
the belief of all of them in this sentence
"I certainly think it quite essential that
the issue of paper money should be kept
entirely separate anddistinctfrom every
thing connected with the banking bust
Tbe w nate bas spent agreat deal of time
during the last wk in talking about the
Cuban bwlligerancy resolution, and one
by one, the goldites and plutocrat- be
gin to line np on the side of Spain. It is
probable that they got a dispatch from
Rothschilds something like this:
"Yon vill dot Cuban resolution peesi
noss shtop! Mein Gottin Hiramel! I vas
of dot Spanish debt von pig ehlice have.
So come dees Cubans free, how shall I
mein monish again get? Spain, uiitout
Cuba, vill a pauper becomen, und she vili
nefer, nefer to me mein interest pay.
Oh, mein Gott! Dis ish awful. I lose
mein monish! I lose jiein interest! Shtop
that whole peesiuess."
What else could Hale and Hoar do but
fight poor Cuba, after they got that?
When will populist editors cease to
give credence to fuke telegrams and in
terviews printed in the gold Dug aauies;
Will they ever? Will they forever con
tinue to repeat them? Boodler Russell
was down at Washington. He gave out
an interview to the effect that the popu
o..l Aamnorn.ia would fuse on Bry"
on for governor.' A lot of populists as
sume that it is a matter ol fact ana De-
irin to howl. That is just what the in
terview wag printed for in the first place.
Russell did his part and these chaps take
up the strain and the object of printing
it is accomplished.
For goodness sake, if you have tfie
slightest interest in the success of the
populist party, stop taking your popu
list news from the gold bug dailies. Tbe
Independent is at the very center and
heart of populist state news. It has
trusted friends in Washington who will
not fail to send information of import
ance at the seat of government if it is
suppressed by the press association. If
you take your news from the Independ
ent you will be on safe ground. lou
will not be carrying out the schemes of
the agents of the money power.
The New York World sayB:
"That If Nikola Tenia succeeds In harnessing
the electrical earth currents and putting them to
work for mai there will be an end to oppressive
extortionate monopolies.
"The successful adaptation of Tesla'a discovery
will administer a death-blow to the roost galling
slavery that has ever yoked the activities of men
to the treadmill ot monopoly. Tesla Is the wle
ard who Is going to emancipate modern Indus
tries from the shackles of corrupting, aiviaenu
grabblng, monopolistic corporations."
All that is nonsense. Tesla may har
ness the earth currents, and produce
heat, light and power almost without
cost. He may use the currents for trans
mitting thought by telephone or the
Morse instrument, but if the money pow
er controls legislation, the galling slav
ery of mankind will still remain. If the
World's own theory ol overproduction is
true mankind would be a thousand fold
worse off than now.
After Tesla has abolished the costoi
power, heat, light and telegraphy the
debts, taxes and interest of the world
remain to be paid, and the money power,
if it still controls legislation, can make
money so dear that it will take 1,000
bushels of wheat to pay a debt that one
bushel will pay now. By reason of exist
ing debts and taxes, if that power is al
lowed "to regulate the value of money"
no invention, no decrease in the cost of
production, will emancipate producers.
Tesla b success, with the money power in
control.would add millions of paupers to
the millions that now exist, by destroy
ing the present occupation of millions of
nmn nnil wnivmn. He Will briDG? no bless
ings but only curses upon the world.
There is a power greater than steam,
arreater than electricity to bless or to
curse, and mankind will make no progress
until that power is harnessed and con
trolled. It is the power to "coin money
and reirulate the value tnereot.
That power can make slaves of man
kind regardless of science or invention.
It can also make the world a second
Paradise, till its fields, and fill the land
with schools, colleges and songs of hap
piness, if used for the benefit of mankind
and not for a privileged few. It is the
srrnatest power on earth. It is almost
The Omaha Merchantile Reporter gives

ing permits and clearing house exchanges

between 1893 and 1894 in transfer of

tween 1894 and 1895 it was, $1,433,

The decrease in the clearing house ex

This is a very sad story but it is the
story of the whole south and west. It is
the story of the gold standard.
The result of the contest between Mr.
Allen, a farmer living near Ashland, the
mortgage on whose farm was fore
closed, and the officers of the law who at
tempted to eject him, is what all have
foreseen. Mr. Allen armed himself and
family and held the officers at bay for
some days, but at last was captured
The record of the facts in the daily
papers was as follows:
Allen waa arrested and brought to town. Tbe
entire family came In about 10 o'clock last night'
and presented a pitiful sight as they sat around
tbe stove at tbe Commercial hotel. The fam
lly consists of seven small children. They will be
taken to Wahoo for trial. It Is feared that
There are hundreds of just as pitiful
casM in Nebraska, and there will be
hundreds more during the next two or
three years. There in only one way
to fight this sort of thing. It cannot be
done with Winchesters and shotguns.
It can only be done with ballots. If the
farmers of Nebraska and other states
had only rightly used their ballots, such
things would never have occurred. The
ballot is the only weapon that can de
fend the farmer. Yet men sometimes
sell it for a glass of beer, then stand
helpless before the most grasping and
cruel tyrant the world has ever known,
namely, the power of money.
A very nice gentleman, a Lincoln mer
chant, said to the editor of the Indepen
dent. "I have never taken much inter
est in politics. I have always voted, and
sometimes attended the republican pri
maries, but I confess that this fierce fight
over the delegation to the national con
vention is a puzzle to me. Either Man
derson or McKinley would carry out the
republican policy of sound money and
protection. There would be no differ
ence in the policy pursued which ever is
nominated. Why such a .fierce fight, and
why is so much money being expended?"
" There's innocence for youl Perhaps
nine-tenths of the voters are just as inno
cent. Why? It is because there is more
than a million dollars in it. That's
Tbe salaries of presidential appointees
in this state, including postmasters, reve
nue collectors, marshals, judges, inspec
tors and others, during a presidential
term is much more than a million dollars.
If a McKinley delegation is chosen and
McKinley is elected, then these chaps will
get the offices. If a Manderson delega
tion is chosen and Manderson is nomi
nated and elected then the other chaps
will get the offices. There is more than a
million dollars in it. That is what they
are fighting about.and this innocent mer.
chant couldn't understand it at all.
What do these chaps, who yell every
time the name of their candidate is men
tioned, care for Manderson or McKinley?
Not one in ten of them ever saw either of
those gentlemen. When they talk about
"the great Ohio statesman," or "shout
stand up for Nebraska and our
o n favorite son," it is all a
sham. If Manderson or McKin
ley, out of office and out of power
and influence, should come to any one of
them and ask a loan of five crollars they
would say, "you git." Their enthusiasm
is engendered by a sense of favors to
come, and a man who does not know
that much is very innocent indeed.
None of that sort of thing has ever
found a place in the populist party. Let
us pray that it never will.
Senator Cullom charges that the Mc
Kinley managers have bought up Illi
nois with clean cash. He says:
The McKinley forces are organized all over
my state. They have their agents tramping
round, organizing McKinley clubs and doing
anything in their power to make the state solid
for McKinley. There has been a large amount
ot money spent in Illinois by McKinley workers
and It is not easy to break up the schemes which
have been set np for him.
Who is furnishing this vast amount of
money and how do they expect to get it
back? McKinley is a bankrupt and a
pauper living on the contribution of his
The editor of The Independent would
like to know what is the proper thing to
say, when a pop editor has hunted three
hours for a quotation, found it, and then
in a fit of absent mindedness pastes it on
wrong side up and gives it to the prin
ter? It turns out that the express compan
ies are at Washington with a lobby
working up that plutocratic scheme to
exclude populist quarterly publications
from the mail. At every turn these days
one meets a monopoly crying "more!
Gen. Weaver denies having suggested

Populist papers have just as large sub
scription lists, and often larger, than any
old party paper published in the same
counties. Their readers have just as
much money to buy goods as do the

more likely to see a good point in an ad

A good many people seem to be get
ting in earnest these days. Whenever
they do get in earnest, they drop tbe
dilettanteism of convention and forms
and then they talk a good deal in
the style of the Independent or
Tillman. It seems that Bishop Potter
is getting In earnest. He says of tbe
church in its present attitude, that it is
revealed as a monstrous, insolent im
There baa been a good many gnessee
made as to the manner in which tbe re
publican house would dispose of the pop
ulist contestants to seata. It was well
known that the frauds perpetrated in
the south were so flagrant, bold and well
known in counting out populists who
were elected by overwhelming majori
ties, that they could not be denied
or covered up. The question was: Will
the republicans, who for twenty years
have been denouncing these frauds, now
that they are in power, seat themen who
were actually elected? There were few
who believed that they would. Last
Monday the first of these cases was re
ported from the committee ou contested
elections. The following is the report of
what they did:
WASHINGTON, March T. The House Com
mltteeon Elections, No. 2, has decided to re
port that the last Congressional election In the
Fifth Louisiana District was null and void, on
acconnt of fraud and Intimidation. The sitting
member is Charles J. Boatner, a democrat. The
decision If sustained by the House will nneeat
Boatner, without seating tbe contestant, Alex
Benoit, a populist, and will create a vacancy
from that district. Tbe vote iu committee was
strictly on party lines.
It is evident thatnot a populist will be
seated, however big a majority he may
A correspondent sends the "following
list of questions:
First, can a tariff on Imports directly or In
directly protect the home market prices of agri
cultural staples as long as the surplus is sold for
export, and the export and home price for these
are the same?
Second, if it cannot, must this unprotected
Industry pay for the cost of protection of the
protected Industries?
Third, Is not such a system ot protection lnjgr-
fously unjust and Inequitable to the producers
of agricultural staples?
The American Economist says that the
low price of wheat and corn is because of
the repeal of Bill McKinley, or the Mc
Kinley bill, we forget which. Any way,
"you can bet your Hie" it is all on account
of the tariff. Put ou 3 per cent more
and the world's redeemed.
The government can't run a railroad.
That would be impossible says the plu
tocratic press. It don t seem that the
plutocrats can run railroads either, ex
cept to run them into the ground, and
then call on the government to dig them
out. The government is today running
eighty-seven railroads, some of them
great trunk lines, and running them at
the request of the aforesaid plutocrats.
The great magnates who, to hear them
talk, know all about railroads will take
a great trunk line with the taxing power
of a Czar, and in a few years will have to
throw up the job and ask the govern
ment to please appoint a receiver and
put it in shape so that the said magnates
may take it and try a hand at it again.
The most idiotic performance ever re
corded was that of a republican congres
sional convention in Kansas last week.
They resolved that they were in favor of
the free coinage of silver and McKinley
for president, when they knew that Mc
Kinley had publicly stated that if the
national fonvention of the republican
party declared for free silver he would
leave the party. If any one knows o
a more idiotic thing please report, that
the world may know where the best
breed of human donkeys reside. Up to
date Kansas has them.
Senator Alleu has introduced a resolu
tion calling on the secretary of the treas
ury for a statementof the gross earnings,
operating expenses and net earnings of
the Union Pacific road from its organiza
tion to July 1895. That is a specimen
of the practical work Allen is doing in
the seuate. A correct answer to, that
question will go farther in the settle
ment of the Pacific railroad question
than four hundred speeches.
Several students, members of theecon
oraic ciub of the state University, called
at the Independent office and stated
that all the speakers who, had addressed
the club were chosen by the executive
committee and that the head of the de
partment of economics had nothing to
do with it, and if they had all been on
one side, during this college year, that
was purely accidental.
"When are we most troubled with a
glut in the market?" asks Professor Ely
"Undoubtedly when least is produced.
When is there the most ready sale for
commodities? Undoubtedly when every
body is at work, and when most is being
produced." But it is all on account of
the tariff.
"With the support of the mints with
drawn from gold" says Banker St. John,
'the market price of gold would fall rap
idly until the price attained would per
mit the lower arts, in utensils and the
like, to absorb the surplus gold." But
Bill McKinley says that could not hap
pen all on account of the tariff.
The papers report that Mr. Cleveland
has stated that he regrets he did not
make the bond issue two million instead
of one million, so as to provide for all
contingencies to the end of his term.
That is an indication that there is to be
another issue soon, but it is all on ac
count of the tariff.
Mr. Poor, the one populist in the Ken
tucky legislature has stood the test. He
could not be bought. Tbe populists in
the next Kentucky legislature will not be
represented by one man, but by a ma
Tbe following persons sent in clubs
during the week. In behalf of tbe popu
list party, the distressed merchants, the
suffering farmers, the thousands of
laborers out of work, the landless ten
ants and all those to whom the Inde
pendent would bring prosperity, we re
turn them sincere thanks: R. A. Law

For five or six years the plutocrats
have been trying to curtial the circula
tion of populist literature, and they
strike at the post office laws to do it.
The house bill in the present congress
No. 4500, is the same old bill that has
been introduced in the last three or four
congresses to accomplish that purpose.
If the bill should become a law, all
"books or reprints of books" which
means paper covered books, issued pe
riodiocally, which have done more than
any other one thing to cheapen our lit
erature and place good reading within
the reach ef even the humblest student,
will be driven out of the market, besides
stopping the circulation of populist lit
erature, for the postoffice is the only
means of communication with the peo
ple we have the telegraph is controlled
by the gold power. It will cause a de
crease in the amount of paper consumed
by about 100,000 tons, annually. It
will lessen the amount of type-setting,
printing, stereotyping, etc., and will
throw thousands of people ou; of em
ployment. But that just suits the gold
ites. The more tramps there are the
easier it is for them to control the gov
Gen. Weaver at a popullsr meeting in Pes
Moines recently nominated ex-Gov. Boise as a
candidate for presjdent.' Mr. Boise has not left
the democrat party but has declined to belts
presidential candidate. It Is to be hoped the
populists will not be compelled to nominate all
the chronic office seekers who are unwilling to be
Ignominiousiy defeated by being democratic
candidates. F. A, 4 I. U.
It is exceedingly strange, past com
prehension in fact, that populist papers
will reprint Associated Press lies, for
the above report is one of that kind.
The paper also says: "It is to be hoped
the populists will not be compelled to
nominate all the chronic office seekers,"
thus ranking vopulists as a lot of imbe
ciles who were to be "compelled" by
some body. Populists are not that sort
in this state. If any bne thinks he could
do some "compelling" just let him try it.
The Independent is exceedingly weary
of this kind of talk. It thinks that in
stead of populist delegates selected from
among our most intelligent citizens, be
ing a lot of Imbeciles, whom somebody
will "compel" to make unfit nomina
tions, tbe imbecils are the men who
write that kind of trash. Certainly they
cannot be of a high grade of intellect
when they will give credence to every
Associate Press lie that is printed for
the express purpose of injuring the pop
ulist rarrv.
One of the epithets constantly hurled
at the populist party is "Anarchist." It
seems about time for the American peo
ple to seriously consider this question of
anarchy and find out who the anarchists
are, and then deal with them as they
ought to be dealt with. When Cleve
land ordered the United States troops
to Chicago against the protest of the
governor of the state and the constitut
ed authorities of the city, in direct viola
tion of the constitution of the United
States and state of Illinois that was
democratic anarchy. .
Now Governor Bradley of Kentucky
has in violation of the constitution of
the state of Kentucky, surrounded the
legislature oi that state with an armed
force. This strikes at the very founda
tion of government. This is anarchy un
defined. Even in the monarchies of Eu
rope parliamentary bodies and the mem
bers of them are free from military in
fluence and free from arrest.
It will be remembered that two years
ago a German socialist who was serving
a term in prison was elected a member of
the Reichstag. The day that body met,
the prison doors opened and this legisla
tor went free and was free as long as
that body was in session. Even the des
potic German Emperor dared not lay his
hand on him. There is no principle so
well founded in all free governments as
that legislative bodies and legislators
shall be free from military influence,
Governor Bradley defies that principle
and inaugurates republican anarchy in
The people have now had a sample of
both republican and democratic anarchy
and can decide which is the worst.
Meantime the populist party stands
as it has stood, the only party in exist
ence in these later years that defends
constitutional government and law and
order. It believes that the military
should be subservient to the civil power.
McKinley says that that row down in
Kentucky, the fight in the legislature!
the militia, the camp of soldiers, the
public meetings and the tramp of uni
formed men is all on account of the tar
iff. If the tariff was only three per cent,
higher, men would not fight over the
silver question.
Wm. P. St John, president of the Mer
cantile National bank ot New York, in
his testimony before the Springer com
mittee page 329 said: ,
"By law, gold carries tbesight of transi
tion into English money at the price of
3, 17s., lO&i. per Troy ounce, eleven
twelfths and one pennyweight fine.
By law, France, Germany and other
important continental states similarly
endow gold and, by virtue of our law,
gold carries the right of transition into
the money of the United States at the
fixed price of 23-22 grains pure, or 25.8
grains nine-tenths fine for a dollar. Thus,
by law the market price and the mint
price of gold are one and the same."
But Bill Mckinley says, its all on account
of the tariff.
Why Money is Hoarded.
The following paragraph is from a
speech delivered by Gen. A. J. Warner in
the House of Representatives Jan. 15,
I repeat, then, that prices will always
fall when the money volume is undergo
ing contraction, and as prices begin to
fall money is withdrawn from investment
and hoarded inidleness. Why? Because'
investment is not safe. It is neither
profitable nor safe to put money into
property that is falling in value nor to
employ it in business. Production is
therefore checked or stopped. For if
what is produced one month is worth
less the next, who wants to invest money
in production? That road need only be
followed long er ough to carry any one
into bankruptcy. Ithas already carried
thousands there, and has just carried the
great firm of Oliver Bros. & Phillips, of
Pittsburgh, into that pitfall.
Senator Tillman's Position.
In answer to a letter writen him by a
South Carolina Democrat, Senator Till
man replies:
Washington, D. C, Feb. 29, 1890.
Sir: I have your letter of February 5,
and appreciate very much your kind
words of commendation. In order to
preserve the unity of the white democ
racy of South Carolina we cannot act on
your suggestion not to send delegates to
Chicago. We have already captured ther
state Democracy. We are the state de
mocracy and we must go to Chicago pre
pared to bolt if need be and ally our
selves with the free silver men of the
west. It would be a fatal blunder not to
send delegates to the national democratic
convention and would only be putting it
in the hands of our goldbug enemies. If
the national convention does not adopt
a platform to suit us and put a man on
it above suspicion as to his loyalty, we
can then leave the party, but not before..
The efforts of every true friend of silver
and financial reform should be directed
to having our state democratic commit
tee composed solidly of men of our way
of thinking, so as to have it act as a
unit. Benjamin R. Tillman;
The populists carried the city of Winter
set, Iowa. The editor of the Review, (
Imvincr worker! nicht, and rln.v. starrtwl.
wrote, taiKea ana printed to accompnsn
that end, finding that he had actually
won wrote it up in this way: "Winterset
populists win and send greetings to their
brethren. We make a clean sweep and
elect tbe whole ticket in each ward. The
Millenium is only four miles away and
the Review commences printing green
backs tomorrow. Free coinage com
mences as soon as the new council organ
izes." The Trouble With Allen.
Senator Piatt (republican). The trouble
with the senator for Nebraska is that
his only definition of bimetallism is the
unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio
of 10 to 1 by the United States alone. I
say that is no honest definition of bimet
allism. Congressional Record.

Let the new woman come if she want
to, she can't be any worse than the old

County Democrat.
Senator Blackburn, in a speech at
Frankfort on Saturday night made the
remark that "there has not been one
single original, copied, borrowed or
stolen idea in the democratic press of
Louisville for the past twelve months
which was not a lie." It is probable-
that the statement that he had said that
he would support the democratic nomi
nee for president even if he was a golcf-
ite is also a lie. .
A report of a meeting held at Crounse,.
at which Mr. Jerome Schamp made a
speech which received the endorsement
and applaudits of a very large number
of the most intelligent citizens of that
place was lost in this office after it was
prepared for publication and sent to the
composing room.
A farmer can make one hundred per
cent more money raising the right kind
of votes than he can raising corn at
twelve cents a bushel. If he will put in
some time and money in getting in a
good crop of votes, in the end he will
have a good deal more spare time and
money than be has now.
Among the "silver lunatics" are the
learned professors of political economy
in the colleges of London, Oxford, Cam
bridge and Edinburgh, and the late De
Leveleye with others of the profession on
the continent. The populists stand side
by side with thelearned of all the nations
of the world.
