"And We Have a Majority in the Home."
It has been some time since the repub
licans have been so very sure that they
would elect a majority of the electoral
college. Now they say: "If we do not,
the election will go into the bouse of iep-
resentatives and we have a big major
ity there." Suppose they do have a big
maioritv there. Majorities don't count
when it comes to electing a president in
the house of representatives. It is a ma
jority of states that counts, each state
ha vine one vote.
The Boston Globe, gold standard, re-

why should the free silver panacea of the
ooDulists lose its seductiveness? The
bond sales and the endless chain of green
backs are thrown by fate upon the ster-
ODticon canvass to illustrate the popu
listic harangue against the evils of the
nresent situation. The populist vote
nearlv doubled from '92 to '94.
"The winning candidate for president
will need 224 votes in the next electoral
college. If the democrats should not
carry a single northern state the repub
licans would go to the Mississippi river

requisite number. If they should stoop
very low to conquer in that region they
therebv would imperil their standing in
such goldbug states as New Jereey, New

THE STATE WARRANT RAKE-OFF.
How the Genial Enrene Moore and his
Friends Take in the Shukels-i
There is a little history in connection
with state warrant business with which
most people are not at all familiar. For
instance: Smith has a claims against the
state for services rendered or supplies
furnished. He submits his- bill to the
board of public lands and buildings or
purchase and supblies, it is allowed and
the auditor instructed to draw a warrant
for the amount. Smith gets his warrant,
presents it to the treasurer, who informs
him there is no money in the' treasury
with which to pay the amount, but he
can likely get it cashed by R. E. Moore,
(lieutenant governor) oy snavmg 11 iwo
or three per cent. The warrant is pre
sented to the lieutenant governor at his
loan office, corner Eleventh ana U, ne
shaven it from one to three per cent, and
sen da Smith away partially satisfied.
This warrant is taen presented to the
treasurer and endorsed on the back,
"Presented and not paid for want of
funds," and thereafter draws 7 per cent,
per annum which goes to fatten the
pocket book of our lieutenant governor.
It is openly charged by men in Lincoln
who profess to know, that the treasurer
and other state officials are in league
with this official warrent shaver, that
there is money in the treasury to pay
these warrants or most of them, but
that the state house gang demand this
mode of procedure in order that they
may get a rake off from the "shaver"
and the interest whh accrues. Wahoo
More Populist Victories.

A Kansas Congressional District Evolves a
New Plan of Nominating Congressmen
Kansas is a country of new departures,
In a congressional district down there,
the populists say that they are tired of
sending t men to congress who don't
know anything about the work they are
hired to do. So they propose at their
next convention to call all of the can
didates before them and find out whether
they know anything or not, by asking
them a series of questions and giving
each one fifteen or twenty minutes to
reply. The following are some of the
questions they propose to ask:
What is tie question before the Ameri
vv hat is money?
Where does wealth come from?
How is wealth produced?
If money represents wealth, if all wealth
is produced by labor, why do not the
producers have all the money?
What is the basis of wages and what
is the highest form of wages?
vv ould unlimited coinage of silver en
able the 8 000,000 men, who have only
their labor to sell, to earn a better living
or get a home with less labor than at
the present time?
In what manner do 180.000 families
that toil not, take from 12,500,000
families $4,500,000,000 annually?
what is the difference between chattel
and industrial slavery?
If 10 per cent, of the people own 90
per cent, of the wealth of the country, if
unlimited coinage raises prices, who
will it benefit?
How can we abolish involuntary
What causes prices to be high or low?
Having ten times as much gold and
silver in circulation as we had twenty-
five years ago, why is it harder for some
men to get it?
If a few men own 90 per cent, of the
wealth of the country, what object have
they in keeping up a monetary system
that tends to keep prices low?
11 A contracted a $1,000 debt twenty
years ago when wheat was worth $1.40
per bushel, and this year pays it with
wheat worth 60 cents per bushel; if B
contracts a $1,000 debt this year and
pays it growing and selling wheat at W)
cents per bushel, how much more labor
must be expended by A than by B in pay
ment of their debts?
What would be the best system of
If these questions and any others the
convention thinks proper to put to the
candidates are not satisfactorily an
swered, it should adjourn and send oat
lor more material.
The Jayhawkers further say, that
commoa sense ana sound Dusiness
methods justifies them in this course. Noi
good business man would hire a man to-
do his law business for him unless he
knew something about law, or a man to
prescribe for him when sick unless the
man hired knew something about medi
cine, ne wouian t even select a teamster
from a lot of candidates for the position,
unless the man kpew something about
horses. Why then should they hire a
man, and pay him $5,000 a year to go to
Washington and make laws, if he don't
know anything about what kind of laws
are needed?.' Who will deny that there is-
good hard sense and sound philosophy
in this proposition?
The man who happens into "THE NEBRASKA" this
Spring will find plenty of food for thought in the prices
he finds attached to anything he may pick up. He will
find a good, substantial, durable, suit of clothes marked
$4.25 which ten years ago would have cost him at least a
ten dollar bill. He will find a fine black worsted suit
selling for seven dollars the same quality as he used to
pay $15.00 to $18.00 for not many years ago He will ''
find Men's shirts marked 50 cents which a few years back
would have been considered cheap at $1.50 and he will
find Hats, Shoes, Underwear, Sox and anything that a
Man or Boy can wear for VERY MUCH LESS than he
ever expected to see them marked.. What is the cause of
these lower-than-ever prices at "THE NEBRASKA"
this Spring? The main cause is the general condition of
the country and together with that, is the desire on the
part of "THE NEBRASKA" to make prices in keeping
with the hard times.
Prices this Spring are lower than ever before, our prof
its are lower than ever before, our values are greater than
ever before. It is a good time for you to buy.
Our Spring Catalogue will give you some valuable lessons on
the cheapness of things. . . .

Ex-governor Bariwtt Gibbs says:
don't believe any apology ia neces
sary for quitting the democratic
party. If there ia any apology
due, it should come from the man who
endorses it. I stuek to the party until
it got in power and failed to comply
with its promises even a little bit. The
people dealt it the winning hand and it
didn't have the nerve to play it. It
played the gam of a society flirt and
didn't know which beau to take. It
plowed the earth about bad government
until it not the offices and then seemed
to think everything needed was a little
tariff tinkering and jingo resulting.
"The candidates for democratic nomi
nations who won't defend either a dem
ocratic congress or a democratic presi
dent have no right to pose as democrats
or ask democratic votes. If they are
not followers of the'democratic platform,
congress or president, who and what in
the devil are they politically?
"No matter what tLey call themselves,
they are politically buckwhackers with
out a partyand without a leader. They
sail under democratic colors on the same
principle that the farmer is afraid if he
changes his pig call the hogs won't come
home. These candidates cuss everything

Editob Independent I received youir
communication of the 16th of March re
questing me to sent you names of persons
in my neighborhood that would be likely
and able to take yonr paper, and in re
ply would say that between the drouth
and that great wave of gold standard
prosperity that has swept over this
country, th people have no money. I
assure you that there are plenty of peo
ple who wottld be glad to read your paper
bat I know that they cannot pay- If we
can get the necessaries and sone of the
comforts of this life, the other fellows can
have the gold. But the majority of the
people believe that all the wealth of this
world is the product of labor, except
that whieh has been given to man by his
Creator, and many things that has been
given to man has had to hare the band
of the laborer applied to it before it is
of use to man. We belieTe that if all the
money lords that we are blessed with
could be colonized and pnt upon an is
land with their gold and bonds, where
there was no one to work for them that
they would have to work or starve,
and that the people could raise as good
beef, pork and beans, as they could witu
them here. But that would not solve
the labor problem. But I believe the
populists will solve the labor problem be
fore they quit, so that it will stay solved
as long as the world stands, and 1 am
going to help. John Long.
