THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT,
Th following appears in the New
Britain Connecticut Morning Dispatch
in ita isue of August 24. Coining from
ancb a renowned financier, profound
logician, statesman, authority on all
economic questions, gold mine owner
and a man with a record behind him
which ia bo invulnernable from every
point of view,.it will doubtless settle the
presidential contest without any further
debate and w presume Mr. Bryan has
already been informed that his distm
gnisbed neighbor the Right Honorable
Joseph Burns has traveled 100 miles in
a lumber wacron to seal bis doom as can
rtidate for oresident and that he will
quietly allow the Honorable Joseph to
dangle bis scalp at his belt. Had for
tune decreed that Joe Burns should sup
port the democratic nominee, no man
can even approximate the result in the
number of votes Mr. Bryan wouia nave
received on election day.
Behold the Honorable Joseph's proph
ecy: "The following letter was written by a
citiien of Lincoln, Neb., and a neighbor
of William Jennings Bryan, and shows
what the feelings are on the gold ques
tion in that section. The letter was not
intended for publication, but was a
private family letter, and on that ac
count is of double value in showing that
the sentiment is strong against Bryan
even in his own home:
"Lincoln, Neb.; Aug., 14, 1896.
"Dear Brothers. On my return from
Wyoming, where I have spent the year
o far, I find your letter awaiting me.
Yon ask me what I think of the silver
question. In answer I will briefly state
that lam not for free and unlimited
coinage of the silver of the world. I
might, and perhaps would be, for the
coinage of. the silver produced by the
American mines, and put a tariff of 50
cents per ounce on all foreign silver. In
this way we would givea certainamount
of labor to our own people, and by their
employment, open up a market for our
own produce. But the free coinage as it
is set forth in the Chicago platform, in
my judgment, will cause more trouble in
the next five years than we would get in
ten years, as it would make two stand
ards of value, and the poor people and
the working people would suffer most
from it, and as the cheap money has al
ways driven out the dear money in every
country, when two standards existed,
the f $00,000,000 in gold that is now in
circulation would disappear, and it
would take our mints, running a full ca
pacity, about twelve years to replace
that amount. In the mean
time all industries would either
close or run on such a basis as would
make paupers of ns all. As I see it, the
election of Mr. Bryan and a congress of
his way of thinking would entail more
hardship on ns than I am capable of pic
turing. I believe it would be as great a
calamity as was the civil war, and would
cost the country more in money. I do
not know how much your section suffered
during the last three years, but as for us
of the west, I cannot picture to you the
misery and want that was caused, as I
believe, largely by the tariff tinkering.
The distrust and loss of confidence by in
Teetore should be lesson enough to last
us for the next twenty years. I look
on free silver as I did on free trade, only
with more suspicion, and I am going to
do all I possibly can to prevent such a
calamity. I rode over 100 miles' in a
lumber wagon to the railroad, and 700
miles by cars to come home to assist in
preventing the possibility of such a thing,
and I did this at my own expense, so
you will see how earnest I am in the
matter. At your age and. mine our care
should be for the future welfare of our
adopted country, that our children may
enjoy all the blessings that with proper
legislation this country affords. I have
seen so much misery all around me
among friends and neighbors in the past
three years that nothing on earth would
induce me by any ote of mine to add to
their misery. I am fighting as I never
did before to get thedeluded people back
-to where they belong, to the return of
prosperity, the opening of the fac
tory, the employment of our idle
men, thus filling once more the
dinner pail of the American workman
with American raised bread and beef,
and putting American clothes on the
back of his wife and children in fact
placing them where they were four years
ago, in 'good homes, with prosperity
and plenty, so that they can enjoy life
as God intended they should. I find on
my return to this beautiful, but dis
tressed city I have made my home for
fourteen years, that the men who have
suffered are thinking for themselves, and
all of Mr. Bryan's sophistry and elo
quence cannot fool them again. Mr.
Bryan helped in congress four years ago
to bring about our present condintion,
and, as a result; this city and county
will give McKinley 8,000 plurality over
Bryan. He will not carry his precinct,
his ward, his city, his county or his
state. Our people had enough of the
deraagoguge and don't want any more.
Now, I think I have fully explained or
set forth my views on the free silver
craze, and from now until election all I
can do I will do to defeat it.
Hoping this wrH find you all well, as it
leaves us, I am, your loving brother,
. Mo Free Speech Goes.
Not being satisfied with the mall
cious and disrespectful burning of Mr.
Bryan's portrait last night the re
publicans wanted to show a true dispo
sition of intolerance by a most out
While General Cowan was making his
speech before a languid audience at the
Capital hotel, he invited comment by
putting a question to the silver men in
the audience.- Jule Schoenbeit of Gov.
Holcomb's clerical staff, gave him an
answer in a very courteous manner. A
republican heeler immediately went for a
policeman and returned with a burly
negro, who was a special. Schoenhei t was
engaged in a very quiet conversation
with a friend when the heeler told the
negro policeman to arrest him. He was
marched off to the city jail, searched and
locked np in a cell. He was not even
given time to tell a friend to see that th
J' l 5 A)
police judge was brought down to the
station. In a few minutes Mayor Gra
ham arrived and had Schoenbeit re
leased. He was told to return in the
morning at 9 o'clock.
Promptly at 9 o clock the prisoner,
with his counsel, Morning & Berge, and
witnesses were on hand and ready for
trial. After waiting in the dingy court
room for a little over one hour, City At
torney Abbott put in an appearance.
It then took another half hour for the
city's legal luminary to consu't with the
police judge and the complaining wit
ness, Schlagel, by name, who is said to
be employed as an attache of the
clerk of the district court, to draw ud
the complaint, which charged
Schoenbeit with using loud and
boisterous language and dis
turbing a republican political
meeting. The complaint was read by
Judge Waters and tbe prisoner at the
bar was asked if he was ready for trial.
He assured his honor that he was good
and ready to proceed. Colonel Abbott
thought it was time for him to say
something so heremarked that owing to
the inability of the prosecution to get
their witnesses present at that time, he
wanted the trial be postponed until
this afternoon, but his honor stated that
he would be very much inconvenienced
should the trial be postponed until that
time so he suggested that it be put off
until tomorrow morning.
It was the unanimous verdict that Mr.
Schlegel's mouth was the most potent
factor in causing tbe disturbance, and
that steps should be taken to bring
that obstreperous youth to justice.
Final Orders Issued.
Early yesterday morning the tents of
Camp Fairchild began to diminish and
today it is almost entirely abandoned.
Present political strife was the only
thing to mar the pleasure of the reunion
of 1890. As one veteran remarked, it
was utterly impossible to keep politics
out of the camp. Some drills had to be
entirely abandoned because groups and
parties of soldiers all over the camp
would not stop political discussion long
enough to witness them.
Next year, under Bryan's administra
tion, they can meet and have a genuine
love feast. Those who predicted law
lessness and national dishonor will ac
knowledge their mistake, and those who
contended for an American policy will
be too happy not to forgive those who
at the reunion have bo unjustly misrep
resented them, and the principles they
Orders issued last evening by Com
mander Culver contained a general order
for the breaking of camp, and the turn
ing over of the grounds to the reunion
committee at 8 o'clock this morning.
Headquarters will move by way of the
Soo route, Northwestern line, and take
post at Hotel Ryan, St. Paul, Minn., on
the first day of September in compliance
with general orders No. 6.
The commander's orders conclude as
follows: "In closing Camp Fairchild the
department commander desires to ex
press his appreciation of the valuable
services of his staff, James D. Gage, ad
jutant; D. H. Figard, quartermaster
general; S. D. Davis, inspector; Job
Hathaway, officer of the guard; C. M.
Parker, camp quartermaster, and his
assistant, Mart Howe; department offi
cers, John A. Ehrhardt, S. T. C, T. J.
Majors, J. V. C; A. S. Tierce, medical
director, and his assistants, Drs. Ran
dall and Haggard.
"Major J. B. Fergnson, band director,
performed valuable services, for which
he should be commended. Cornet bands
from Fullerton, Falls City, Cortland,
Hastings and Ord performed excel
lent service cheerfully complying with all
orders, for which the department is
under special obligations; also the Wav
erly and Farragut drum corps, which re
sponded to calls for duty.
"The Hamilton cadets,' under com
mand of an able captain from whom the
organization takes its name, has proved
to be one of the most attractive features
of the reunion, and with pleasure the de
partment commander offers this meed of
New York Nairn
praise at the close of one of the most
successful reunions in the history of this
"Aides-de-camp Cowie and Goodell per
formed faithful and valuable services.
Courtesies extended by the local reunion
committee, ithe constant presence of
Messrs J. H. McClay, C. H. Rndge, J. W.
Bowen,' John L. McConnell and Jerry
Woods, deserves special mention as aid
ing materially to the success of the re
union. Break No. 3.
The republicans are making a syste
matic effort to keep up their plan of cam
paign as inaugurated Thursday night.
It is now dangerous for one to wear a
Bryan button in the company of repub
lican rowdies. Last evening, as S. P.
Benadom, a well known democrat of the
Seventh ward, was driving along Twenty-seventh
street, he was stopped in
front of Johnson's grocery store by a
ruffian who demanded to know "What
the devil he was wearing that kind of a
"Why not?" said Mr. Benadon, in his
most respectful terms. His assailant re
plied: "Nothing but thieves and bums and
other dissolute characters choose the
Mr. Benadon did not like the classifica
tion in which the stranger placed him so
he took issue with tbe man, whereupon
the ruffian cowardly seized Mr. Benadon,
who is an old man over seventy years
and very feeble, jerked him from his car
riage and roughly threw him on the
pavement, when he proceeded to pummel
him to his heart's content and to the
evident satisfaction of a number of
'good" republicans who were present.
Mr. Benadon was very badly bruised
about the head and shoulders. He
was unable to obtain the name of his as
sailant. Not one of the republicans who
watched the entire proceeding would
disclose his identity.
Let this kind of work continue. Tbe
republicans may burn the portrait of
W. J. Bryan, arrest men for asking ques
tions, cowardly assault and ruthlessly
pound feeble and defenseless old men for
wearing Bryan buttons but they cannot
stem the tide or in any .way impede the
electors of the people's leader by the
employment of such methods. There are
too many voters in Lincoln who believe
in fair dealing, who respect honesty and
honor, even in politics, to tacitly assent ,
to the employment of such means to Be- J
cure party success.
Getting Down to Business.
Chicago, Aug. 29. Senator Joues has

Is more and more impressing itself
upon the public, as the years go by, as
being the great park of tbe land. The
strong feature of it is the fact that it is
not a man made park, True enough
man has built roads and bridges and ho
tels in order that he may see the park,
but he has not yet tried his hand at con
structing new-fangled geysers, or re
adorning or resculpturing the Grand
Canyon of the Yellowstone. These are
as God left them. There, too, the elk,
