Nebraska, after two week of constant
rains all orer the state can say to the
world that she will have for sale within
the next fire months the largest crop of
wheat, oats, rye, barley and all the early
crops ever raised in the state, and that
the prospects of a big corn crop was
never so good before at this season of
the year. This means, first, the sale in
this state of a large amount of farm and
harvesting machinery, and as the crops
mature and are sold the purchase of
gooJs from our merchants in larger
quantities than if we had bad no crop
failure, for the people hare bought hard
ly anything in the last two yeare.
Things are all worn out and must be re
plenished. The business men who ad

What kind of "cents" are they of which
it only takes fifty to make a dollar?
When a Lincoln republican wants to
vote his principles these days, he always
votes the populist ticket.
One of the best things about a bicycle
is that when you hitch it to a shade tree
it won't gnaw the bark off from it.
No populist votes the people's party
ticket because his dad did, for his dad
was either a republican or a democrat.
When a secretary of the treasury in
this enlightened age goes around the
country talking about "intrinsic value"
he deserves nothing but contempt.
Rosewater borrowed $400,000 dollars,
or thereabouts, and made it payable in
silver. Now he says that any one else

Gold is going out of the treasury at
the rate of $2,500,000 a day, although
there is over $150,000,000 of free cash
in the vault. How now about the de
ficit story and that it was taken out to
pay current expenses.
Silver was demonetized when the repub
lican party had a two-third majority in
both branches of congress and the presi
dent, yet some men who say they are for
free silver are still shouting for McKinley
and the republican party.

The McCook Tribune (rep.) in speaking
of the state treasury says: "Let us clean
up before the other fellows do it for us."
The Tribune should remember that every
republican who has tried that has invar
iably been downed by the party. Look
at VanWyck, Judge Maxwell, and a host
of other houorable and able men who
were driven out of the party for trying
to do that thing. The "other fellows"

WHY AUK YOU HOWLING?
Sound Money came tbia week coTereJ
with blue pencil marks and it is a per
fect enigma to the editor. JVe asked it
to tell us who the men were who wanted
to make a campaign on a single plank
platform so that we could go and shoot
them, and it gives us a list of thirty
newspapers who are opposed to a single
plank platform. We have been asking
for the names of the fiends who wanted a
single plank platform for three months
and not a single name of man or paper
has been furnished. Not one. Now what
are yon all howling about? That is
what we would like to know. The whole
crew of you had better stop kicking men
of straw and go to punching the com
mon enemy. Xnis trying to maice we
people believe that "somebody" is going
to make a sintrle plank platform and
that the delegates to the national con
vention are going to adopt it, because
'somebody" tells them to, is the worst
rot that ever got into print. For good
ness sake stop filling populist papers
with such insufferable trash. .
If populist conventions, state and na
tional are made up of the class of men,
indicated by these "kickers" men who
have no principles, men who will adopt
any kind of a platform that "somebody"
tells them, then the sooner the populist
patty dies the better. But they are not
that kind of men. They know on the
average as much as a pop editor, and
sometimes a good deal more. The mem
bership of the populist party will make
the platform and furnish the votes.
These howling kickers pan do neither.
COOLORADO REPUBLICANS. '
Latest news from Denver makes it very
doubtful whether the Colorado delega
tion will bolt the St. Louis convention.
The state convention adopted this reso
"We cordially and heartily commend
and endorse the efforts of our republican
delegation in congress in behalf of the
silver cause, and we tender to them the
sincere thanks of the people of Colorado
(or such efforts." , . .
Edward 0. Wolcott is one of that dele
gation and he says he will stand by a
gold bug nominee. .
A large part of the delegates to the
tate convention were men, so the Den
ver papers state "wno are Known 10
gain a livelihood from buncoing strang
ers. There were men there who have
been in jail, others who have been in
dicted, but managed to keep out of jail,
and others who have neither been in
dicted nor jailed, but should have had
both experiences, and all of these for of
fenses other than against the ballot box.
If the last class, those who make an avo
cation of jobbery at election time, were
included, the roll would be a long one.
The police board was safe in sending a
number of its officers as delegates, be
cause many of the persons they are sup
posed to watch were under their eyes.
This motly crew, added to a swarm of
taxeaters and a couple of dozen individ
uals who should have known better
than to be found in such company, made
up the bulk of the delegation."
Honest, patriotic citizens will put no
trust in a delegation sent to St. Louis
bv such a crowd as that. Colorado was
"redeemed" from populism and this is
BRYAN V8 ROSEWATER.
Bryan got a good one on Rosewater
in the joint debate in Omaha the other
night. Rosewater was inveighing against
those who wanted to pay their debts in
cheap fifty-cent silver dollars and then
went on to relate how, when he se
cured a loan on the Bee building he had
an option of making the notes payable
in gold at 4 per cent or in coin at 5
per cent. He chose the latter, for he
had his misgivings that gold might be
forced to a premium, and he would be
unable to pay his interest, in that coin.
Bryan replied that he was glad to be
told of the mortgage on the Bee, for it
proved that the cause of free silver was
not dead when it could scare Rose-
water into making provision to pay his
debts in dishonest silver coin. Why did
not he Bign the notes calling for payment
in money good the world over? Why
select the money used in Japan and Mex
ico? Would Rosewater pay his debts in
dishonest fifty cent silver dollars?
Rosewater having plead guilty to the
very crimes he was charging others with
wanting to commit, was knocked nearly
crazy with the yell that went up from
THE COLORADO TRAITOR.
A resolution bad to be introduced in
the senate before the old "besotted ty
rant" in the White House could be in
duced to raise his finger to prevent the
cold-blooded murder of several American
citizens in Cuba. He is the same old "be
sotted tyrant" that wrote a war mes
sage about a boundary line down in a
South American republic. This is the
Resolved; That the President of the United
States be, and he is hereby, requested to pro
test against the execution the citizens of the
United States captured on the schooner Compet
itor by a Spanish cruiser, and to request the
demand of the government of Spain that they
shall not be subjected to cruel treatment but be
held only as prisoners of war, unless It shall be
established that they were engaged only in car
rying merchandise which was contraband and
for which they were subjected to no punishment
other than the confiscation of their property
Of course the gold bug, foreign tory
Wolcott sprang to his feet and objected,
All the charge made egainst these men
was that they had in their possession
contraband goods. Never-the-less they
were court martialed and ordered to be
shot in plain violation of the law of na
tions. The law on the subject is well es
tablished. Falinerston stated it in
these words: "Your ou'y remedy is to
capture them, if you can capture them,
they are not subject to any other pun
ishment than the loss of property."
If there ever was an American citizen
who deserved to be hanged to a lamp
post, it is this traitor from Colorado,
THE LIAR'S BELT.
The belt goes this week to little Eckels,
comptroller of something down there at
Washington, but who spends a good
deal of his time dining with the Wall
street bankers and making speeches
praising Grover Cleveland, the man who
appointed him to office.
In a recent speech little Mr. Eckles
It la a significant fact that ths great part o,
the total amount of legal tender silver which the
great commercial nationi now have was added
daring the period of what they term "silver dis
crimination and falling prices." This wasal
most wholly the cane la the United States, where
from that year to the present we have pat forth
In silver dollars of fall legal tender quality, either
in silver coin or the representative thereof, a to
tal of 42,28,16. as against 8, 081.288 coined in
all the years from the establishing of the govern
ment to that time.
That is not a very big or a very im
portant lie, and the belt is awarded to
him, not on that account at all, but be
cause it isa double distilled lie, that is
it is a half truth, told with the intention
to deceive. Mr. Eckles here asserts that
two half dollars or four quarters are not
a dollar. In no other way could the
statement be true, for during the time
Mr. Eckles mentions, there was coined
at the United States mint $84,000,000
of full legal tender silver, eight millions
of it being in silver dollars and the re
mainder in halves, quarters and smaller
coin, inis is an mgeniuB naif truth,
double distilled lie and after full consid
eration the Lndependetn awarded the
belt to Mr. Eckels.
ROSEWATER'S HONEST DOLLAR.
Rosewater says that "an honest dollar
is a dollar that after itishammereddown
and the stamp taken off it would exchange
for just as much "of any commodity as
it would before the stamp was taken off;
a dollar that would pass current the
world over at approximately its bullion
If that is true he deals in and pays his
debts with nothing but dishonest mon
ey, lie advocates national bank dol
lars, and does his business with silver
certificates and a very few greenbacks
and treasury paper dollars, which would
be worth nothing "after the stamp was
taken off." A man must be hard pressed
indeed when he talks such nonsense as
Again, if all the gold mines in the
world should suddenly fail and gold
should become so scarce , that an office
holder, or coupon clipper, could buy
enough commodities to live on a whole
year with the same number of grains as
now go to make one hundred dollars,
still 25.8 grains of gold would be an
honest dollar because when the stamp
was taken off it would exchange for just
as muh of any commodity as before.
That is a kind of honesty that the
American people will never sanction.
In several republican state conventions
lately, the actions of the delegates were
so unlawful and disorderly that the po
lice had to be called upon to prevent
bloodshed and preserve order. This was
notably so last week in the state con
ventions of Colorado and Missouri. Are
such men as composed these conventions
who defy all law and all the rules of
their own organizations, and rule by
brute force, fit to govern or elect men to
In the days when the republican party
was first organized its conventions 'were
composed of orderly, conscienitous men,
Now they seem to be mostly composed
of thugs and bruisers, from the very
lowest elements of society. There will be
no improvement in this matter while
decent men continue to vote their party
ticket, regardless of the manner of the
nomination or the moral character of
their candidates. The question is: Will
the American people long submit to be
ruled by this class of men. If they do
longBubmit, then all that our fathers
left us of free government is gone.
THE TRAIL OF ROTHSCHILD.
Senator Hill in his filibustering
speeches against the bond investigation
had the secretary read all of John Sher
man's contracts when he was secretry of
the treasury with the foreign syndicates,
and therein he did a service for the popu
list party. Theso contracts will be good
things to publish during the campaign.
The signatures to most of these contracts
were as follows:
John Sherman.secretary of the treasury;
August Belmont & Co., on behalf of N.M.
Rothschild & Sons, of London and asso
ciates and themselves; Drexel, Morgan &
Co., on behalf of J.S. Morgan &Co., of
London, and themselves; Morton, Bliss
& Co., on behalf of Morton, Rose & Co.,
of London, and themselves; The First
National bank of the City of New York,
by H. C Fashnestock.
The trail of the House of Rothschilds is
very plain from the first issue of bonds
until the present time.
When a man has courage enough to
advertise in a populist paper, populists
should have principle enough to patron
A GREAT WAVE OF TIIOl'OHT-
The gold bugs have long been promis
ing as a great wave of prosperity. John
Sherman, in a speech in the senate, said
that it would arrive "within ten days"
after the repeal of the Sherman act. Of
course all that talk was for the purpose
of fooling the people and it fooled them
uut mere is a great wave sweeping
over the country, not of prosperity, but
of "thought." The people are thinking"
and nearly all are thinking on the same
subject When they get it "thought
out" "a great wave" of reform will sweep
over the country. After that the "wave
of prosperity" will come. Not before.
Myron Reed the famous pulpit orator
of Denver, submits some very convincing
evidence to prove that this wave of
thought has swept over at least nine
states. He says that he was appointed
a judge in an inter-collegiate oratorical
contest, where representatives of colleges
representing nine states contested for
the prize. The following are the titles of
the subjects treated:
First The twentieth Century Politi
cal Idea. .
Second The lawlessness of Materialism.
, Third The Philosophy of Progress. .
Fourth Life and Work of James II.
Lane. ' - V ' . :..'. ..
Fifth The Mob and the Law.
'Sixth The evolution of the Fraternal
Spirit. " '
Seventh The American Ideal.
Eighth Has Industrial Society At
tained Its Ultimate Form?
Ninth The Policy of Metternich. .
Mr. Reed thinks that if the students of
all the colleges of these nine states had
held a convention and resolved to treat
only the sociological questions of the
day, they could not have selected a list
of titles that would have been more
strictly confined to one line of thought,
and he concludes that "the great wave
of thought" has swept over nine states
Another thing seems to be conclusively
proved. Millionaire endowed colleges
with, gold bug professors of political
economy, with all the plutocratic influ
ences possible thrown around the stu
dents, cannot force American young men
to advocate tyranny and oppression.
American college boys have too much
of the blood of patriots in them to ever
advocate a system that will reduce the
common people of this country to that
of the peoples of gold standard Europe.
CARLISLE'S BABY TALK
To call a dime a dollar would add nothing
whatever to Its Intrinsic value or its purchasing
power,- it would still purchase only a dime's
worth of goods." John G. Carlisle's Chicago
That whole sentence sounds more like
the prattle of a child than the words of
a grown up man. Any one who iu this
age will talk about "intrinsic value,"
will only be greeted with pity for his ig
norence or disgust for his puerile at
tempts at deception. When a dime is
made a dollar, it will purchase a dollar's
worth of goods and not a tenth part of
a dollar's worth as Mr. Carlisle says,
whatever theamount of the goods might
be. It would also pay a dollar's worth
of debt and a dollar's worth of taxes and
not a dime's worth. ' To make by law
a dime into a dollar would not increase
its power to purchase goods, but it
would increase its power to purchase evi
dence of debt ten times. Such a law
would not be just but that would be the
effect of it. A speech made up of sen
tences like that, the goldites call a great
Senator Pritchard of North Carolina
has joined the ranks of those who are in
favor of the free coinage of silver and
the single gold standard. In the North
Carolina republican state convention he
offered a resolution which was adopted,
instructing the delegates to the national
convention to vote for McKinley for
president so long as his name is before
the convention. Then he followed this
with another declaring that "we favor
the use of gold and silver as standard
money and the restoration of silver to
its functions and dignity as a money
metal. We are opposed to retiring green
backs, the money of the people, the
money favored by Lincoln."
The world has never seen statesmen
indulging in such child's play before.
McKinley and free silver! The majority
of the people may be fools but we don't
A LOST REPUBLICAN HEAD.
A strange skull has recently been found.
A professor describes it as follows: "At
the upper part of the skull the union is
very firm, with the epithotic or supra-
temporal, the squamosal and quadrato
jugal. Running inwards and a little
backwards as well as upwards from the
glenoid is a flattened process which is
evidently the pterygoid. But this is not
all. The hemispherical occipital con
doyle slopes downwards and backwards,
while the bassioccipital is quadrangular
and somewhat concave." It undoubt
edly belonged to one of those republicans
who "lost his head" and voted for free
silver and McKinley.
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ON CYCLONES
Lincoln got a sample last week of
what the Associated Press Liars can do,
and a good many republicans around
here don't think it half as funny as when
the said Liars send out a report of what
Allen or some other populist is doing in
According to the Liars, Lincoln had a
terrible cyclone, and a large part of the
town was damaged or wrecked, when the
fact was that there was only a very high
wind, lasting about twenty minutes.
The editor of the Independent was at
his work in his office, situated right in
the path of the disturbance, and never
knew that anything out of the common
bad happened until on his way home he
saw a number of limbs broken from the
trees, But it must be remembered that
there is hardly a tree with perfectly
sound limbs in the whole city, the drouth
of the lost two years having greatly in
jured them. In one instance a tree had
blown over" against a house, but the
south half of the tree was dead and rot
Lincoln is not in the region of cyclones,
has never had one, and probably never
THE GOLDITE WAT.
The goldite organs seem to get more
and more silly every day. The Kansas
City Times says: -
As a correspondent, a cattleman, showed in
the Times a day or two ago, he goes to Mexico
and buys cows at 9 a head, paying for them in
61-cent silver dollars so that the cost Is really
bat S4.69 a head to him and sells them in Kan
sas City for $23.50 a head in 100-cent dollars. And
when the poor Mexicans come to boy our dressed
or canned beef, they have to pay for it in
100-cent dollars at the enormous increase in
price, that la, they must pay as at the rate o'
(47 per head in their currency for oar beef.
Of course the poor Mexican, whom the
Times so much pities, sends his cow to
Kansas City, pays the transportation,
has her killed, pays freight charges back
all the way to Mexico on the beef, and
gives the American $47 for what he sold
to him for $9. Poor Mexican! He don't
know enoughand is too.tender-hearted
to kill a cow.
The Times has no sympathy for the
American farmer who, under this bounty
caused by the difference in exchange,
sees Mexican cattle taking the home
market away from him.' The Times has
lots of sympathy for the poor Mexican
greaser who is making more money than
he ever did in his life before, but none at
all for the poverty-stricken American.
That is the way with all of those sort of
fellows. Their sympathies are always
with the foreigners.
MRS. BRANDT'S PARDON.
In an article in the State Journal Mrs.
Angie F. Fewman, a 'sister of Senator
Thurston, says of the pardon of Mrs.
"All honor to Governor Holcomb. His
gracious and courtly reception of the
ladies, his prompt response to the claims
of motherhood, are worthy of all praise.
"Warden Leidigh moreover had for
weeks made almost superhuman efforts
in behalf of Mrs. Brandt's release, and is
entitled to the gratitude of every lover
of the good and the true."
. Mrs. Brand twas sentenced to the pen
itentiary for three years for shooting a
villinous brute known as "Bulldog
Reeves" for attempting to assault her.
In regard to this Mrs. Newman asks:
"Must the verdict be written in this
christian century that the alternative of

THE END OF BATTLE SHIPS.
Every one around Washington knows
that Professor Langley, of the Smith
sonian institute has been at work on a
flying machine for several years. The
writer of this saw the then incompleted
machine some two years ago, and made
an inquiry into the principle upon which
it was proposed to operate it. . He was
convinced then that Prof. Langley would
succeeed. Now Prof. Graham Bell, after
witnessing two flights of the machine,
states to the press that "No one could
have witnessed these experiments with
out being convinced that the practica
bility of mechanical flight had been dem
onstrated." If the machine proves to
be thoroughly practical, it will be the
end of building costly battle ships.
When a flying machine can drop down
tons of dynamite upon them, their end
The Independent heartily agrees with
the following editorial, which appeared
in last week's Farmers Tribune:
"Knowing what we do of Henry Vincent,
we believe that we are no more than ex
pressing the views that he would enter,
tain were he differently situated. He
is too broad-gauged to want to retard
the progress of the party for the sake
of any oue idea of detail. He knows
that the really important object of the
movement is to get possession of the
government, and that the platform that
will best enable us to do that is the
platform that should be adopted." Pro
vided, however, that we always stick to
the fundamental principle: "Equal rights
for all, special privileges to none."
ALLEN AND LINCOLN.
Ibe republican party did not put a
demand in its first platform for the ab
olition of slavery, but when it got into
power it did it. If it had put such -a
plank in its platform Abe Lincoln would
never have been elected president. The
editor of the Independent, who was at
that time a ranting abolitionist, was
willing to trust Lincoln then. He is
willing to trust Allen now. The Inde
pendent thinks it knows what course
Allen would pursue if he were president
and is more willing to trust him than
any platform that was ever written or
ever will be written.

OVERWHELMING LOVE.- '
The overwhelming' love of the gold
bugs for the poor working man being
now everywhere so conspicuously adver
tised is amazing. The Indianapolis
"Debasing the currency reduces the
value of wages and increases the price of
everything the wage earner has to buy."
The complete answer to all such hypo
crisy is the reply of the Irishman, who,
when the plutocrat told him not to vote
for free silver as it would reduce his wages
one half, replied: "Faith now, if ye be
lieved that, you'd be voting for it your
self." -r -..
It is proposed that the next gold bue:
convention be opened by singing the
following hymn: r
"And are we yet alive,
, Most wonderful to tell!
. Amazing mercy, wondrous grace,
That keeps us out of hell."
Sherman says he wants "a dollar
equal to any in the world." That is just
what we should have if we went to a sil
ver basis. The only nations that have-
dollars" are silver-standard nations.
The rest have pounds, marks, francs.and
such like things.
The gold bugs seem determined to take
the Chicago convention and run it to suit
themselves. The free silver democrats
having carried the state by overwhelm
ing majorities, the goldites are going to
hold another convention and send a con
Church Howe said: "The old ship is
leaking now," but a Michigan republican
delegate goes him one better on watery t
metaphors, and says: "I hear the swash
of a human sea beating about our foun
dations, and we are courting our own
destruction by opposing it."
One republican convention will instruct
for the gold standard and McKinley and
the next day another will instruct for
free Bilver and McKinley, which shows
that the republican party is composed of
the worst set of political villians that
ever disgraced any nation on earth.
The New York World wants the Chica
go convention to declare for the gold
standard, so it is trying to make its
readers believe that McKinley isnof'real-
ly and truely" for gold, and if the dem
ocrats will only make a straight gold
platform they will sweep the country.
Chairman Maxwell has secured good
accommodations at 50 cents, 75 cents
and $1 per day for all who attend the
St. Louis convention from Illinois.
Somebody had better look after accomj
modations for the Nebraska pops or the-
flrst thing they know they will be left
out in the cold.
Bolln the Omaha defaulter of public
funds got a sentence of nineteen years
and $200,000 fine. If that sort of work,
had been begun by Nebraska judges ten
years ago, there would not have been so
many defaulters and the taxpayes would
have been saved many hundred thousand.
The B. & M. railroad advertises in this
paper in another column that tickets at
one fare for round trip will be sold to
the followinsr conventions: Republican,
Democratic, Christian Endeavor, N.E.A.
and Prohibition. It does not announce
any reduction at all from full fare to
either the Populist or Free Silver con
ventions at St. Louis. It is probable
that it intends to give populists and free
silver men all free passes.
The Colorado republican state conven
tion elected Teller a delegate to St.
Louis and a delegation instructed to fol
low his lead. As Teller has stated oa
the senate floor, and time and again
elsewhere, that he will bolt if the St,
Louis convention nominates McKinley
or any other gold-standard man, and as
the convention is sure to do that very
thing, what is going to be the situation
in Colorado? Will some one please tell
us? The populist is the only free silver
party in the state.
Trenton Silver League.
Trenton, Neb., May 18, 1896.
Editor Independent: A call for a.
mass meeting to form a free silver league
was published in the People's Sentinel of
Trenton, and on Saturday the 16th.
inst. quite a number of all shades of po
litical belief assembled in the old bank
of Trenton building and a league regu
larly organized. L. H. Blacklege, County
Atty. of Hitchcock is Pres. and R. O.
Adams, Editor of the People's Sentinel
An executive committee consisting of
the following gentlemen were appoint
ed to form by-laws for the league and
have general charge, viz: W. Z. Taylor.
C. R. Powers, M. H. Terrick, G. W. Ben
jamin, M. Scott, G. W. Sburtleff and J. G.
Quite a little enthusiasm was manifest
and the success of the league seems as
sured. Its aim will be to promote the
cause of free silver at the ratio of 16 to
1 and will be non-political so far as party
is concerned. Free Silver.
