The following letter was received by Dr.
Bell of Denver, from Senator Tillman
and published in the Denver Daily News.
Waduinqton, D. C. April 29, 1896.
Dr A.C. Bell 400-413 California'Build
ing Denver, Colo.:
My Dear Sir Your valuable favor of
April 21 received. You did not sign it,
so I address this to the name ou the eu
I acknowledge the truth of much that
you Bay, and it is, perhaps, wrong in me
mot to openly announce my candidacy
4)ut let nie remind you of one thing: This
is a very large country, and I am a com
paratively new man in national politics.
.If there is not sufflcent impulse already
.given or to be given between now and
vthe national conventions to put me forth
as the logical candidate of the reform
forces, they the announcement of my
canuiaacy at mis tune would do more
harm than good. If the masses of peo
ple waut me, the politicians will find it
out, and then will follow with a keen nose
the way the people are going, and un
til the people move in the matter the pol
iticans who manipulate conventionsiwill
hold back. The agitation of my candid
acy by any admirers or friends of mine
through the press or otherwise will do
no harm, if it does no good. I am in this
fight for all I am worth, not with any
selfish or ambitious motives.
Being a Southerner, the initiative indi
cative of lack of sectional feeling should
come irom tne nortnwest. 1 am ready to
lead the fight if the people say so. It
would be presumptious to ask them to
give me command. Thanking you for
your kindly interest. I am, very sin
cerely. B. It. Tillman.
Victory in November,
, Despite the strength of the silver dem
ocrats in the democratic states, there
seems to be little question that the gold
wing of the democratic party mustering
its votes from the republican states, will
dominate the Chicago convention. The
silver democrats will have no alternative
but to bolt the convention, and uniting
with the silver republicans and populists
on the same candidate go before the peo
ple as opposed to gold monometallism
and foreign dictation. Let independent
republicans, and democrats, and popu
lists unite on a common candidate, let
them unite on the grent principle of bi
metallism, and victory in November will
perch upon their banner. The American

Uncalled for Kicking.
All this hullabaloo of the Arkansaw
Kicker is impolitic, uncalled for and un
justifiable. It has come to the pass that
Mr. Taubeneck can t leave his St. Louis
office without fetching forth a snarl from
our envious Arkansas brother. As na
tional chairman Mr. Taubeneck's field is
the whole union. His business is to look
after the parties interest in every part of
ine country as nis wisdom may dictate.
He has a right in Nebraska, in Kansas.
in Alabama or elsewhere. Hrl th
populist party desired a superintendent

doubtless given Brother Morgan a job.

A .Silver Convention.
A convention to select sixty delegates
to the national silver convention at St.
Louis has been called to meet at Topeka,
Kansas, July 16.- The Iowa silver con
vention will be held July 14. Iowa will
be entitled to thirty-five delegates.
Governor Walte on the Platform.
In a speech at Denver this week ex-Gov.
Waite congratulated Senator Teller
on his recently announced position.
While personally he did not object to a
single plank in the platform of the peo
ples party he thought it probable that
the platform will be amended at St.
Louis and a compromise will be reached
with silver forces for a national fight on
the financial question. The abolishment
of the national banking system he con
sidered as one of the points to be fought
; The Latch String Hangs out.
General Weaver says: "In Oregon the
populists have opened the door to all
who agree with them on the financial
question; not the silver question merely;
that is only one prong. It is free silver,
the abolition of national banks, the
making of all monay legal tender, and
last, no more bonds without end. They
vote in Oregon June 1. Listen the next
morning for news from there."

blood will be spilled in that state if the
democrats attempt to usurp the power
of government without showing a clear

The Gentleman who Wrote the
, First Article Makes Some Cor
rections .
The Independent of April 2nd con
tained a seatement giving the receipts of
the Wyuka Cemetery Association from
April 13, 1894 to January 1, 1896. This
statement was taken from the books at
the ctmetery office. The same statement
also gave an estimate of the expenditures
for the same time. The reason an esti
mate was given instead of a statement
from the books, was because the books
were said to be lost. We called Mr.
Oakley, who has charge of the books and
the office by telephone, Monday, March
23, and asked him to make some kind of
a report, as the matter Was being talked
about on the streets in a very U2ly way.
Mr. Oakley said he would not make a re
port until April 15, and urged us to come
np and see the books. During the after
noon of March 23, we went to the office
of the cemetery. Mr. Oakley showed us
a new set of books that he had opened
January 1, 1896. He told us that the
book containing the expenditures for
the last two years was lost. We under
stood from what be said, that it bad
been lost for some time. This, remem
ber was ten days before we printed the
statement. During the ten days we
went to the office nearly every day to
see if the book could not be found. Mr.
A. M. Davis went to the office to look np
the book but could not find it. There
was a book showing the receipts during
the time that our estimate covered to be
112,262.40 and that Mr. Davis had
turned over $7,533.71 making $19,799.
11 as total receipts. The amount of
cash on hand January 1, 1896, was
$289.93 deducting this from the amount
received would leave $19,509.18 as the
amount expended during the nineteen
months that this statement covers, or
more tnan ?i,uuu per montn. vve coma i
nnr aaa wham an much monnv cnnlrl I
be paid out as there had been no expen
sive improvements put on the cemetery
grounds. We concluded to make an esti
mate of the amount paid out, notwith
standing the book was lost. Mr. Oakley
stated that the current expenses were as
follows: Kent of office $14.00 per month,
care of office and books $25.00 per
month, sexton $50.00 per month, care of
green .house $40.00 per mouth, extra
help digging graves $10.00 per month,
fuel $10.00 per month, making $149
per month, or forthe time this statement
covers $2.91b. After making diligent
inquiries we added $1,260.00
for other help and small expenses. This
would make wnat mignt be called current
expenses for the nineteen months $4,176.
The next thing to be looked up was
the permanent improvements. . Mr. Oak-
y again told me there was no book
there showing the cost Of any ci the im
provements. We went to thlptenfsjtery
and estimated the improvements as best
we could. te found that the following
improvements had been made during the
nineteen months:
First, a water tank and tower, which
we estimated to cost $1,000.00. We
first made inquiries of the Nebraska
Planing mill before we made this esti
mate. Second, The hot house, estimated to cost
Third. e estimated that there had
been 75,000 brick bought to extend gut
ters, at $8 per thousand, making $600.
Fourth. The cost of water pipe was
placed at $400.
Fifth. The-cost of cinders $200.
The above items amount to $3,000.
Those improvements were all that we
could find that had been made, "
The current expenses and permanent
improvements would amount to $7,176.
Air. Oakley told us that there were
only two loans, one for $3,000 and' one
for $1,000. The curreut expenses, per
manent improvements and money loaned
would amount to $11,176, deducting
this from net amount received which
was $19,509.18 we found that there was
apout $ ,uuu.uu tnat we could nnd no
book to explain where this money had
Alter the election was over the book
containing the account of the expendi
tures was found and a report was made.
e decided to make an examination of
the books. While examining the receipts
of the office vve found that there was one
entry of $2,000.00 that was in twice.
Mr. Fawell said thathe pro tested against
the second entry. There was an entry in
the book of $10,653.68 as collections
from April 13, 1894, to September 8,
1895. , Air. Oakley informed us that he
had checeked over the items and that
the above amount was correct. We
found that the $2,000.00 was entered
the second time among the items that
made up the $10,653.68. Deducting
tnis, $ a.uuu iroui tne $,uuu tnat we did
not find in our first statement would
leave $6,000 to be explained. We made
a careful examination of the expendi
tures we were told by Mr. Oakley while
making our nrst estimate that onlv two
loans were made, one for $3,000 and one
for $1,000. The books show that there
were five other small loans made amount
iug to $1,206.57. Instead of $4,000
Deing paid out on loans there was $5.'
206.01 paid out. Deducting this $1,206
from the $6,000 we have $4,794.00 left
to account lor. Mr. Oakley gave us
wneu our nrsc statement was made as
the expense of keeping the books and
care of the office $25.00 per month and
the books show that for several months
that has beeu the expense. This would
make an expense for the nineteen months
of $475. There was paid out for the nine
teen months abbout $2,07o as follows
L. J. Byer 'about 875; John Fawell
about $605: W. O. Fletcher about 202
A. G. Hastings about $150 It. H. Oaklev
about $90; Thos. Fawell clerk hire about
$93. This enormous extra cost taking
care oi tue othce over the amount named
to us when we made the first statement
is about $1,600, taking this from the
$4, q4 leaves $3,194 left to be accoun
ted for and it is very easy to account for
this under the head of general extrava
gance and waste of public money. We
found some interesting items of expendi
tures, one dated November 1894, read
as follows: "L. J. Byer oyster and lunch
$o.yo.'; Une would suppose that as Mr
Byer had drawn nearly $50 per month
during nineteen montns tor less service
than each member of the school board
gives for nothing, that he would not
had the gall to take from the public
iunas set apart ior the care oi the dead
f 5.25 to pay for an oyster supper.
Another item of expense read as fol
lows: "Lxpense to Omaha $30." We
found no explanation of this item and do
not know whether it was for a big toot
or a uttie toot. During the nineteen
months Mr. Byer collected about $2,000
more than Mr. Davis did for the nineteen
months ending April 13, 1894, he not
only spent all he collected but spent
$2,943.78 of the $7,533.71 that Mr.
Davis paid over to him April 13, 1894.
There was not much more, if any more,
improvements put on the grounds dur
ing the nineteen months that Byer was
in control than in the last nineteen
months that Mr. Davis had charge but
Mr. Byer spent about $4,940 more than
Mr. Davis did for the same time. Our
examinatian of the books has shown
that our estimate of the permanent im
provements was more than they should
have have cost. "We estimated 75,000
brick and the books show less than 55,
000," we estimated $400 for water pipe,
the books show less than half that
amount. We estimated $200 for cinders
the, books show considerable less than
that amount for the nineteen months.
The green house and plants cost about
our estimate.
The water tank and tower cost more
than we estimated. Our total amount
of estimates would about cover the total
cost of the improvements that we made
estimates on. Our estimate was $3,000.
00. Mr. Byer or ahyother one of the cem
etery trustees may rake the cemetery
ground over with a fine tooth comb and
luij will Dot fiud asy other permanent
improvement that will amount to much,
that was . built during the nineteen
months that we are considering. The
report that was made April 15 by the
cemetery board was as follows: Paid for
improvementsduring two years, $9,089.
83; paid for labor, $4965.57; paid sex
ton $1,195; paid loans $4000; paid for
sundries, $129.57. There is at least one
glaring mistake in this report. The
books show that the amount paid out in
connection with the seven loans was $5,
206.57 instead of $4000 as the report
shows. This being the case there is $1.
206.57 mixed up with the sexton, labor
improvement or sundry account. Since
Mr. Oakley took charge of the office a
complete and new set of books have
been opened and everything seems to be
in good shape and no public money is be
ing wasted. Mr. Oakley was elected in the
spring of 1895 but did not take charge
of the office until October last.

It is recommended' that primaries for
selecting delegates to county conventions
be held on Thursday, July 9; and that
county conventions for selecting delegates
to state convention behold on Saturday,
July 11.
It is also recommended that the cre
dentials from each county be handed in
to the state central committee, prior to

central committee, that in the state con
vention, the following plan of selecting
delegates to the national convention be
adopted: That nine delegates and nine
alternates be selected from each con
gressional district by 1h delegates
present; and that three delegates and
three alternates be elected at large.
It is urgently requested that every
member of the party, who possibly can
do so, attend the primaries, so that those
selected as delegates may represent the
wishes of the entire party.
Every voter in Nebraska, who favors
an American system ef finance and is
opposed to the gold standard, bond
issuing policy of the present administra
tion; who favors the free and unlimited
coinage of gold and silver at 16 to 1;
who favors reform in our systems of
money, land and transportation; who
favors more economical administration
of national and state governments; who
is opposed to the further domination of
corporations in our legislation; who be
lieves that the government should be
brought closer to the people; and finally,
who is ready to cast aside prejudice and
vote for the common prosperity of all;
every such voter is cordially invited to
participate in our primaries and assist
in the selection of our delegates.
