So far there has not been the slightest

democrats of southern Maryland and

Governor Boies' letter defending Cleve

being re-read in all the labor unions in

for the presidency.
The figures in the Independent office
went crazy last week. Pettigrew and
Cannon's terms expire in 1901, and the
letter from Mr. Tan Der Voort was writ

A correspondent says: "I often see in
your and other papers the letters 'g. o.

'g. 0. p." stand for "gold our politics."
We will tell you what "d. o. p." means
after the Chicago convention.
The potato bugs suck the life out of
the potatoes, the chintz bugs out of the
corn, the weevil out of the wheat, and
the gold bugs the very life blood out of
the people. The problem before us is
how to kill off the whole lot.

Mr. James Crawford writes the Inde
pendent about the prayer with which
the republican convention was opened,
lie thinks it was no good at all, because
it left out both Jesus and silver,and asked
the Almighty to bless the bosses and
boodlers there assembled, nil of which
was an insult to high heaven. ' Mr.
Crawford's theology is evidently sound.
An exceedingly valuable little book en
titled "Cold Facts" has come to our ta
ble. In that book can be found the offi
cial documents answering the thousand
and one questions that every body is
asking concerning money and the finan
cial legislation of the last thirty years.
C. St. John Cole, publisher, Minneapolis,
The sergeant at arms of the democrat
ic national convention at Chicago has
provided a "staff of able physicians and
surgeons, ambulances, stretchers, appli
ances and remedies for instant use when
any emergency arises in the coliseum or
in the crush outside the building." From
present indications there will be plenty
of work for them before that body gets
throusrh with their discussion over
'sound money" and "free Bilver."
After reading Taubeneck's dispatch to
the New York World we suppose that all
the kickers will again declare in very
very large capitals that the national
chairman is trying to force a fusion with
the democratic party and sell out the
populists. When he says that free silver
men must unite with the peoples party
and vote its ticket, that, according to
the kickers, means that he is "going to

We had written an editorial to express
the , osition of this paper, but those
resolutions are better written and better
express the policy of the Independent,
than the article which had been previous
ly prepared, so it is suppressed and the
resolutions printed instead.
There Is free and unlimited coinage now In
Mexico, but Mexican mine owners And no advan
tage In coining tbelr bullion Into Mexican
dollars, and therefore the per capita circulation
In Mexico la lesa than $6, while In the United
States it is nearly lour times that amount. Oma
The first statement is rather amusing
when compared with scores of others
made by the Bee to the effect that free
coinage would benefit the mine owner
only, giving him 100 cents for only 50
cents worth of bullion; and the second
statement, that Mexico has only $6 per
capita in circulation, with prices double
what they are in the United States, is
still more laughable. A little further
along in the article the Bee says:
In his Kansas City debate Mr. Bryan, when
driven to the point, positively asserted that sil
ver would go to f 1.29 an ounce. If Mr, Bryan Is
correct, the Nebraska farmer could not get a
farthing more for bis products than be gets now
on the existing gold standard. The only gainers
would be the owners of silver bullion and gamb
le In silver mining stocks, .
ffi Free coinage of silver does not benefit
the mine owner in Mexico, but he would
be the only gainer by it in the United
States! These goldite editors are funny
THE PARAMOUNT ISSUE.
The silver party, which will hold its
convention at St. Louis the same time
the populist convention is held, held a
state convention in Denver June 24th
and adopted the following platform:
"The paramount issue at this time in
the United States is indisputably the
money question. It is between the gold
standard, gold bonds and bank currncy
on one side, and the bimetallic stand
ard, no bonds and government currency
on the other. On this issue we declare
ourselves to be in favor of a distinctly
American financial system. We are un
alterably opposed to the single gold
standard, and demand an immediate re
turn to the constitutional standard of
gold and silver by the restoration, with
out the aid of any other power, of the
unrestricted coinage of both gold and
silver in standard money at the ratio of
10 to 1 and upon terms of exact equality
as they existed prior to 1873, the silver
coin to be a full legal tender equally with
gold for all debts and dues, private and
The resolutions indorse Senator Teller
and recommend him for the presidency.
IT MUST BE DONE.
In the last issue of the Representative
Mr. Donnelly says:
A large number of old subscribers, despite our
continued appeals, have failed to liquidate. With
this issue we are forced to cut them off. We are
sorry. But we cannot help it; we cannot "car
ry" them. It Is better this paper should live
for those who pay than perish for those who do
The Independent Publishing Co. is
forced to do the same thing. It costs
eight or ten dollars a week to send pa
pers to our delinquent subscribers. That
money must be paid every Saturday
night. With us, it is the same as with
Mr. Donelly, and the same question
muBt be decided: "Shall the paper live
for those who pay or shall it perish for
those who do not?"
Those who are not able to pay now,
and can name some time when they will,
should write immediately. . Some ar
rangement may be made withthem. Itis
painful to write these words to the dis
tressed men and women of Nebrsska, but
there is no other recourse.
Which is True?
The republicau party, by a record of
twenty-five years, has placed itself in
unalterable hostility to silver as money,
and in its last convention, by a vote of
8 to 1, has declared that it stands for
the single gold standard. Now comes
congressman Shaforth of Colorado and
declares: "I am for free coinage of silver
before anything else, and yet I am a re
publican, too, from the bottom of my
heart." If Congressman Shaforth is a re
publican, he is not for the free coinage of
silver. One or the other of those state
ments is a falsehood. Which is a lie and
which the truth?
A very neat little campaign book has
come to the Independent. It is entitled
"Hon. John M. Thurston on Silver,"
and has a good portrait of the senator,
The subtitle reads as follows: "An able
review of the money question by the
chairman of the late republican national
convention." The motto , on the title
page is a quotation from a letter written
by the senate in 1893, in which he said:
"I advocated the restoration of free
coinage before any of those who are now
the self-selected champions of Silver in
Nebraska had ever opened their lips on
the subject." On the cover is another
quotation from one of the senator's pre
election declarations, in which he said:
"Silver was one of the standard coins
the United States from the birth of inde
pendence until its demonetization crept
into the statutes of congress, either by
mistake or fraud." W. B. Crorobie

St., Lincoln, Nebr.
After much tribulation and several in
cipient failures, the Lincoln republicans
attempted to ratify Tuesday night.
They waited until the arrival of the del
egates to the republican state conven
tion in town, so that they would be sure
to have somebody at their meeting.
Thousands of dollars were expendod in
fire works and colored lights. The fire
and police departments were ordered out
so as to make some sort of show, but
after all their efforts, counting delegates
to the state convention and all, there
were less th an 400 voters in line of march.
Thousands of people lined the streets to
see the beautiful and costly display of
fire works, but they took no other part
in the ratifying. But one feeble cheer
was heard during the whole march and
that was when the procession started
from the Capitol hotel. The people
looked on in thousands but they would
not cheer. They do not believe in the
All the banners carried had mottos
favoring the gold standard. One of them
read: "16 to 1 and loose," which showed
more familiarity with gambling terms
than with the spelling book.
There was no heart in any part of the
affair. In some parts of the line the
men inarched along in silence with their
heads down as if they were ashamed. So
signal was the failure, the speaker of the
evening, Mr. Lambertson, announced
that: "this in not a ratificationmeeting.
The ratification meeting was held in St.
Louis two weeks ago.
THE EAST BEGINS TO RALLY.
The cry for monetary reform does not
come from the west and south alone. A
great free coinage party is growing up
in the eastern states and is today very
strong in both New York and Massachu
setts. While Whitney and Senator Hill
were in conference in New York last Fri
day, a delegation reported to them that
in the counties of Franklin, Jefferson,
Lewis, Wayne, Genesee, Niagara, Dela
ware and Schoeharie the silver men were
very numerous. Almost the entire farm
ing class of these counties, it was said,
were eager for a free silver declaration.
Senator Hill listened to all the stories
told him of the strength of the silverites
by alarmed democrats, but he made no
comment and offered no advice. This
was a matter he decided that must not
be discussed at present.
There are free silver republicans by the
hundred in the state of Czar Reed aud it
is confidently predicted if there is a union
of forces on Teller, Reed cannot carry his
own state. There seems to be a general
upheaval in the east as well as in the
west and south.
HON. G. L. LAWS.
Hon. G. L. Laws as state chairman
of the silver leagues, who issues an
address to the people of this state this
week, is widely known in this state. He
has been secretary of the state and mem
ber of congress and a resident 'of Ne
braska since 1876. He is an old Lincoln
republican, and although he has bolted
McKinley, gold standard and the whole
crowd, has like the editor of this paper,
who has not voted the republican ticket
for years and never expects to again, is
still a Lincoln republican, that is, he is
for the interests of the common people
against the cormorants and Shylocks of
Wall street. We extend a hearty welcome
to Hon. G. L. Laws, for he is an honest
man, and a man of great intellectual
Senator Allen went to Washington a
physical giant aud athlete. He has
come home, so those say who have seen
him, a physical wreck. He has fought a
battle against unnumbered odds for the
common people of the United States
such as has never been fought before. It
has been a strain too great for any man
to bear. Any other man would have
completely broken down under it. But
Allen has uttered no word of complamti
not even when sniveling populist editors
have gone yelping at his heels editors
whose very vocation depended upon the
cause which Alien was almost sacrificing
his life to defend. Allen comes home to
receive the plaudit "well done" from
every class of society in this state.
WHAT A WHOPPER.
There is the same status of finance now
astherewasinl891and 1892 when times
were good, and when there was plenty of
money in the treasury. Toledo Blade.
Oh! what a whopper is that statement.
During 1891 and 1892 we were adding
to the circulation $ 4,500,000 a month
under the Sherman act. Since the repeal
of that act, which the gold bugs said
would bring prosperity in "ten days,"
there has been nothing but bankruptcy,
misery and ruin. As the amount of
money has grown less, so has our misery
' SEED OF TELLING IT.
There has never been a traitor in the
populist party from the days of Holden
until now, who did not proclaim himself to
be the holiest of all the prophets of the
reform movement. They are always the
doubly redeemed and four times sancti
fied of the populist party and all the
other members of the party are traitors,
Men who have been workers in the fight
against the Shylocks for twenty years
and always willing to spend time and
money to push the lines forward, never
go around declaring "I am a middle
of the road populist" "I am a true pop
ulist, etc., etc. They never even have oc
casion to say, "I am a populist," for
everybody knows they are, and there is
no need of telling it.
KISSING TnKIR FEET.
W. E. Annin telegraphed to the State
Journal from St. Louis under date of
June 14 the following concerning the
money ptank of the republican platform:
After the above plank had been agreed to it,
text was wired to the moneyed Interests of New
York and especially to J. Plerpont Morgan. The
replies from these gentlemen were satisfactorys
They com mended the terseness of the plank and
unequivocally indorsed in its sentiments.
A more abject getting down and kiss
ing the feet of Wall street snobocracy
was never seen on the face of the earth.
There are a few silly chaps in the pop
ulist party who would like to create a
despotic boss by the side of which Man
na's well constructed machine would be
nothing but a one-hoss cart. If any
prominent populist has the temerity,
without first consulting them, to suggest
a candidate for president, they fairly
froth at the mouth and demand that he
shall resign or leave the party. We
would like to know how they became the
special guardian of the populist party,
or who appointed them the guides and
instructors of the populist leaders? The
Chicago Express assumes to perform
both of theso functions.
The Farmers' Tribune says: "The ad
dress issued by a few leading populists
who happened to be in St. Louis after
the republican convention, while not
binding the party in any way to Teller,
being simply an expression of the opin
ion of those who issued it, yet it meets a
hearty endorsement from nearly if not
all members of the party. In fact the
thought was general all over before the
address was issued."
The populist executive committee met
at the Lindell hotel last Tuesday, taking
advantage of the half fare rates granted
the republican state convention. Seven
of the nine members were present. They
fixed the time of the state convention at
Hastings, August 5, at 10 o'clock a. m.
All the members were in the best of spir
its and reported every thing going our
way in their various localities.
The people turned out in tens of thous
ands to cheer Teller. Cannon, Petti-
grew, Dubois, Mantleand Hartman when
they got home from the St. Louis con
vention. Thurston rented a theater,
hired a brass band, got Manderson,
Cowin and Webster to help and then
made a big fizzle of a McKinley ratifica
tion meeting. Johnny your goose is
We started a list of republicans, more
or less prominent in that party, who
had bolted the ticket since the St. Louis
convention, but by Monday noon we saw
that it would fill the whole paper, so we
dropped it. Judge Scott of Omaha and
about 1,000 others were on it by that
time. Some counties have sent in lists
of nearly one-third of the whole republi
can voting strength.
Years ago when this writer was a John
Brown black republican, he and all the
rest of the republicans of those days used
to talk of the "effete monarchies" of the
old world and all that sort of thing.
Now the John M. Thurston republicans
of the present day call those "effete
monarchies" the "most enlightened
nations" and say we must have a
money standard like theirs.
The coal trust met in New York last
week and levied an additional tax of
$12,000,000 on the consumers of coal by
declaring an advance of 25 cents a ton
and limiting the output for July to
3,500,000 tons. Our forefathers fought
because they would not submit to taxa

The Nebraska state convention for the
election of 59 delegates to the national
convention of the peoples independent
party at St. Louis July 22d, will be
held in Grand Island July 15, at
2 p. m. We hope that Only men who
know what populism is, and also who
have the courage to stand by it, will be
sent as delegates.
Omaha had a great time on last Fri
day celebrating the inauguration of the
exposition. Senator Allen, Governor
Holcorab, General Manderson, Congress
man Mercer and others made speschos to
immense crowds on Jefferson Square.
The republicans hired a lot of boys to
drag old, battered tin cans along the
rear of their ratifying, procession, last
Tuesday night. That is prophetic of the
mannor their old gold standard party
will be yanked over the plains of the
west and the south next November.
We wish every populist in the state of
Nebraska to read the following insult to
every populist delegate to the national
convention that will meet in St. Louis
July 22d, and then remember it. It did
not appear in the goldite State Journal,
Chicago Tribune, or in any paper that is
openly and squarely fighting the popu
list party, but in a paper published at
Indianapolis in Indiana, where so many
fake reports originate, and which is
said to be a populist paper and is called

No doubt the Wall street reform club,
which is furnishing patent insides and
plate matter free to thousands of papers,
would contribute liberally to circulate
such literature as the above quotation
