THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT.
TOM WATSON S STATEMENT.
He Agreed to Eun Because It Would
Unite Tie Silver Force.
He 8ays Bryan U a Man of I'nblemlnhed
Character and brilliant Ability.
TuoMPSON.Ga., July 25. I opposed
the endorsement of Bryan and Sewall by
the People's party. Had we indorsed the
Democratic ticket and put out none of
our own, our existence as a party
would have been at an end.
We could not have fought for the Dem
ocrats on the national ticket and at the
same time antagonize them on State
issues. Therefore, to have indorsed their
whole national ticket not only meant ex
tinction of our party, but meant defeat
for free silver.
The growth of Populism drove Demo
cracy to free silver. The death of Pop
ulism would have removed the pressure,
and the Democratic party might have
drifted aay from its campaign pledges,
as it did in 1892 and 1894. By nomi
nating a ticket of our own, and upon a
platform of our own, we preserve our
idenity as a party and we mantain our,
influnce over the Democrats.
If Mr. Bryan and I make the race to
gather our position will be that of two
men who may differ upon some subjects,
but who act together upon those mat
ters about which they are agreed.
The free-silver Democrats do not go as
far as we do, but we are willing to march
with them as far as they do go in our di
rection. By agreeing to co-operate with
them to this extent we do not compro
mise our principles, stultify our record
or disband our organization.
Our people need more money, lower
taxes and less of class legislation. I am
willing to do all in my power to effect a
change for the better. I had no ambi
tion to 'hold a place on the national
ticket; it was my wish to return to Con
gress; but the despatches which I rec
eived from St. Louis stated that my
agreement to run with Bryan would har
monize all factions, unite the silver forces
and at the same time prevent a possible
split up of my own party.
Acting under that belief I telegraphed
that my name might be used, and there
fore stand by the action of the conven
tion. 1 believe that the combination
ticket can be elected.
The Populists united with the Democrats
can carry every Southern State, with one
possible exception. The union of the
Populists and Democrats can carry the
West. -This silver movement is, to a
large extent, a revolt of the producing
sections, the South and the West, and I
see no good reason why the nominees of
thesilver forces should not be taken from
the sections where it expects to get the
Furthermore, I believe the time is come
when the South should be accorded rec
ognition on the national ticket. For
thirty years now the South has been
kept on the stool of repentance. For
thirty yearn she has been compelled to
wear sackcloth on her loins and put ash
es on her head. Why should the South
forever occupy this humiliating attitude?
Why should we go into every campaign
with a tacit confession that the South
has no right to be represented on the na
tional ticket of any political party. I
was born Sept. 5, 1856, and therefore
was too young to take any part what
ever in the late civil war. I have no prej
udice growing out of it, but at the same
time 1 am a Southern man, proud of my
section and devoted to her interests, and
I see no reason why any political party
should always expect to obtain the sup
port of her 156 votes and yet always be
ashamed to give her a place on the
The World asks what I think of Mr.
Bryan personally. -
As I have stated in my paper more
than a week ago, when I bad no
thought of being connected with him
in a political campaign, Mr. Bryan is a
man of unblemished character and brill
iant ability. We served togathar in the
Fifty-second Congress, voted together
on nearly every question and were per
The Chicago platform is a return to
the old Jefferson principles, and the Popu
lists indorse it as far as it goes. Our
own platform goes further, but there is
no reason why we should not co-operate
with the Democrats to the extent that
we agree. Thomas E. Watson.
Thompson, Ga., July 25, After receiv
ing the news of the nomination of Mr.
Bryan this afternoon, Thomas E. Wat
son, the Populist candidate for Vice-President
handed to J. E. White, editor of
the McDuffie Journal, the foregoing
Webster on Farmers. ' ,"s :
Omaha, July 31, 1896.-(Special to
the Independent.) The republicans had
a rally here last night with nearly all the
candidates for state offices present. By
the use of a brass band a goodly number
gathered at Boyd's opera house to hear
JohnL. Webster expound goldbugism
which he did to a queen's taste and in
the course of which he said many ridicu
lous things. Regarding the price of
wheat he said: "The silver coinage men
tell us that free coinage will advance
the price of wheat to what it formerly
was, or nearly so. They tell us wheat
will sell for $1. Suppose it does, I want
to ask them whether the people of Ne
braska are most interested in high wheat
or cheap wheat. In our state perhaps
25,000 farmers raise wheat. Say that
each of those farmers has a family of
five. That makes 125,040 people in Ne
braska interested in high prices for
wheat. But how about the 875,000
other people in Nebraska who buy wheat
or wheat flour. Are they not interested
in having wheat cheap? I leave it to
them whether this Jeffersonian bimetal
lism to raise the price of wheat is what
they want." This statement should be
photographed all over the state. Mr.
Webster also undertook to make the
working people believe they are better
off now than tbey were in times past.
He declared they could now live in bet
ter houses because rent is cheaper, that
tbey could buy more luxuries with less
money, etc., practically admitting the
soundness of populist doctrine that
money had appreciated. It was an up
hill job however, to convince men out of
work that a dear dollar is what they
want. Regarding Mr. Bryan's state
ment that the farmers were the basis of
our country Mr. Webster declared that
if the cities were destroyed that com
merce and civilization would be
stroyed, an mueh as to say farmer fre
not civiliwd. The whole trend of Mr.
WebHter's speech was in effect to legis
late for a dear dollar, and to pay no at
tention to the demands of t he farmers.
His speech utterly failed to arouse auy
enthusiasm in favor of gold and it was
the general talk of the town after the
meeting, that Bryan would carry Oma
ha by at least 5,000 majority.
WHVT DONNELLY SAYS.
Nide-Tenths of the Delegates Went
Just before leaving St. Louis Ignatius
Donnelly gave the press the following
"I think the situation is in good shape
and that nine-tenths of the delegates
went home satisfied. There are some
who believe Mr. Bryan should at onCe
be called upon to state whether he will
accept the platform, and Mr. Watson as
his running mate, and if he does not ac
cept, then they will demand of the na
tional committee that bis name be taken
off the ticket and the name of Colonel
Norton, who had the next highest num
ber of votes, be substituted. This would
produce the utmost discontent all over
the United States, and Colonel Norton
would not receive one-quarter of the
populist vote, the remaining three-quarters
going to Mr. Bryan.
I think the better course is that which
I advocated in the convention, to-wit:
Having nominated Mr. Bryan, we should
not call upon him to accept or reject our
platform, or to repudiate or defend Air.
Sewall. If this were an intent to merge
the populist party into the democratic
party, a perfect identity of opinions and
principles would be necessary; but it is
not. We remain in our camp and our
own territory, and simply agree to trans
fer for this campaign our two or three
million ot votes to Mr. Bryan. Not on
the basis of the democratic platform, but
on the basis of Mr. Bryan's worth.
Every populist in the United States
will, 1 believevote for Mr. Watson. If
the democrats don't withdraw Mr. Sew
all, there will be no election of vice-president
at the ballot box, and the matter
will go into the senate, where the pop
ulists hold the balance of power, and
will compel the election of Mr. Watson."
Bryan's Opposition to Corporations'
The part of the farmer in the economic
structure of society is that which has
most appealed to Bryi. He stands
before the people "to-dajlrthe represen
ative rather of the agricultural interest
than of any party. It was not unnat
ural that from advocacy of low tariff be
should have turned to championship of
the Anti-Option bill, which sought to
stop gambling in grain. Coining from
a community sorely burdened by the
exactions of the railroad companies,
from a state the government of which has
been for decades dominated by railroad
influnce, he quickly arrayed himself
in antagonism to these corporations. He
strove to have the powers of the In
terstate Commerce Commission enlarged
a step, by the way. which is demanded
by the platform under which he is now a
candidate for the presidency and lie in
sisted that in fixing "reasonable rates"
the commission should allow interest
only on the cost of reproducting the
road at the present time. And it is
proper here to note that in private ac
tion he has kept himself as wholly free
from the influence of railroad corpora
tions as his record in the House argues
he should. Like most public men of
strong personality and talent, he has
had his opportunities to join with the
great array of corporations. In his
Lincoln law practice he has systematic
ally refused retainers from railway com
panies, and at the close of his second
term in Congress, though practically pen
niless, he declined a salary of $10,000 a
year to act as general counsel for a rail
road associatd with the Standard Oil
Company. In all probability the offer was
not even a temptation to him, for con
tent with the simple life of an interior
town, abstemious in habits, and almost
an ascetic in tastes, he has little need for

THE NATIONAL CONVENTION.
The Final Result Satisfsctoty to all.
Lincoln, Neb., Aug. 1, 18UG.
Editor Independent: The peoples
party convention reeeutly held ia St.
Louis possessed some features which were
peculiar, and new in the history of Amer
It was the largest delegate convention
(bo far as I can learn) that was ever held
' n this country. This, in one sense wasa
misfortune. As a result there was at
times a good deal of confusion. Under
the circumstances this was unavoidable.
A convention like this, so large that
the voice of the presiding officer could
not be heard over more than balf of it,
unless all else was still, could not be un
der such control as is necessary for the
prompt transaction of business. This
very fact led to greater license than
would otherwise have been indulged in,
and free conversation was carried on at
times in a score of delegations when it
interfered with the regular proceeding of
the convention. This condition did not
prove to be an element of danger to the
efficiency of the action taken, or to the
ample deliberate consideration of the
same; but it did prolong the time occu
pied, and also gave basis for the lying
reports from the Associated Press, and
other enemies of the convention, of
fights, anarchy and disruption with
which they appalled an anxious public.
On the other hand the evident deter
mination of the presiding officer and his
assistants to permit no action to be
taken except on matnre deliberation;
and the independent, and almost uni
versal determination of the several dele
gations to the same end, resulted in a
complete expression of the will of the
majority, and a general acquiesence in
The greatest unanimity of opinion ob
tained in regard to the objects to be ac
complished; namely, the union of all the
forces favoring monetary reform in the
country; and at the same time to do this
in such a way as to give up no vantage
ground already attained for the accom
plishment of other necessary reforms.
But there was strong difference of opin
ion as to how this result could be best
secured. Nearly one fourth advocated
the nomination of people's party men
for both president and vice president
Perhaps about as many were in favor of
nominating both democratic candidates,
while a decided majority considered that
Mr. Bryan's action as member of con
gress, and his public speeches and letters
entitled bim to the confidence and sup
port of all true reformers, but were in
favor of a member of the people's party
for vice president.
In fact, there seemed to be no opposi
tion to Mr. Bryan personally, but the
only objection to his nomination seemed
to arise from an earnest determination
to keep the peoples part'y intact and to
guard against absorption into the dem
ocratic party. The final nomination of
Mr. Bryan for president and Mr. Watson
for vice president gave the result of the
most patient and careful deliberation
and seemed to give general satisfaction.
It is true that an attempt was made,
principally through the mischievous in
fluence of outsiders, (one or two of whom
were from Nebraska) to organize a bolt
But as the few disaffected delegates had
wit enough left to exclude from their
counsels those who were not delegates.
they finally concluded to take no further
steps until they had consulted with their
voters at home.
So ended the great convention. What
was intended by the nomination of Wat
son is sufficiently indicated by the prop
osition which was freely made by those
who favored nominating both candi
dates from the people's party. That was
to cast their electoral votes for Bryan
and Sewall if they should receive the
The result depends upon God and the
people, and my hope and trust is that
the voice of this convention will receive
the sanction of both, to the reformation
of our government and the relief of our
suffering people. J. H. Powfrb.

exactly the opposite. Thus far the com
