Thurston's debut at Cooper Union in
New York was, according to the
World, a fiat failure, but it lays it all to
the weather. People stand out in the
pouring rain or get up at 1 o'clock in the
morning to listen to Bryan.
When Henry Clews says that Wall
street can and will defy congress and
overthrow this government, that is
patriotism. When Donnelly says that
if Wall street triee that, they will get
stuck fuller of bayonets than a fish is of
bones that is anarchy.
A lady in Ohio writing to a friend in
Lincoln under date of Sept, 5th, says:
"They put up a McKiuley pole at Port
uge sometime ago. Since the silver craze
struch them, fifty-three out of the fifty
seven members of the club will vote for
Bryan, so they changed the flag." That
is the way it is going all over the United
The enormous amount of work Bryan
has been doing is telling upon him. He
looks thinner, tired and worn. Take
care of your health, Billy Bryan. Stop
that hand shaking. That wears out a
man worse than speech making. There
is more depending on your life and
health than any other man in the world
today. For our sakes, keep strong and
One of the queer self-contradictory
arguments of the gold bugs is this:
"Fright rates have been greatly reduced
since 1873, aud that has lowered the
farm price of agricultural products."
The very reverse of that would be true.
Lowering the freight rates would make
the farm price higher, and the citv nri
lower, dividing the benefit between the
The production of gold has varied dur
ing this century from $15,000,000 to
to $150,000,000 per annum, but since
1816, when England "fixed the price,"
it has never varied a hair's breadth from
that price. Why is it, if legislation can
not "fix the price," that over production
and under production has never affected
the price in all these long years.
The Associated Press figures up a
twenty-three per cent gain for there
publicans in Arkansas. It says, after
giving the vote from several counties;
"These figures, if maintained through
out the state, will increase the republi
can vote over 1894 by twenty thousand
and place the entire vote for the republi
can ticket at 46,000, an increase of 23
percent." The republican vote in Ar
, kanras for 1894 was 46,884. If they
"increase" it to 46,000 as they say they
will do exceedingly well. That ia a gold
. standard "increase," like the increase of

A STUNNING ARGUMENT.
An argument that the goldbug thinks
is a stunner Is this: "If a farmer geta
Im for what he sells, be will have to pay
less for what he buya." Suppose wa
amine that a little. How much does
save on what he buys, and how much
does he lose on, what be sella since the
great fall in prices? In an average family
he would save $30 on clothing, f 0
sugar, f 5 on steel and iron, and perhaps
$60 on groceries and sundries, making
total saving of $100.
Now let us see what he loses by the fall
In prices on what he sells. On 500 bush
els of wheat $50. on 2000 bushels of corn
$800, on ten head of cattle f 100, on fifty
bead of bogs $375, or a total loss be
cause of the fall In prices of $820.
Now here is where the goldbug argu
ment, stuna the listener. The farmei
gains by the fall in prices $100, and loses
$820, but the farmer ought to vote lor
sound, that is, dear money and cheap
The further we pursue this argument
the more of a stunner it seems. The
statistics of the agricultural department
show that the annual loss to the whole
farming population is about $1,800,-
000,000. That means that the farmers
buy $1,800,000,000 less goods every
year than they would have bought, if
prices had not, fallen. What made the
factories close down? Can any one tell?
The most crazy financial scheme that
was ever evolved from the brain of man
was that of John Laws, a successful
hanker. The next thing nearest to it
was concocted by about 150 successful
bankers and presented to acommitteeof
the house of representatives two years
ago, called the "Baltimore plan."
Every banker whose has bad charge of
any great nation's financial system has
proved a failure, and yet it is presented
as a thing we ought to seriously con
sider, and even openly advocated by
some that we should put our finances
wholly in control of bankers, because
they know how to make out bills of ex
change and write checks and know whose
note it is safe to discount and whose is
More crazy financial schemes have
been presented to the public by bankers
than any other class of men. They are
so wholly ignorant that half of them
honestly believe there is such a thing as
"intrinsic value." When they try to talk
political economy one can hardly help
thinking that they have just escaped
from a lunatic asylum. A wise thing in
deed it would be to turn our financial
system over to a lot of men like them.
. CREATING VALUE BY LAW,
They say that congress cannot legis
late value into anything. Congress one
time did legislate about a billion dollars
into some land out here in the west
Most of us can remember when the best
quarter section of land out along the
Platte could not have been exchanged
for a tin whistle.andjcongress said: "Be it
enacted," and lo! every acre of land for
hundreds of miles along the Platte be
came very valuable.
If the fiat of the government had not
been put upon the Union Pacific railroad
bill, the land would have remained
valueless. By that "'be it enacted" con
gress legislated hundreds of millions of
dollars into that land, more value in
deed, tlian that of all the gold that ever
was mined or ever will be iniued in the
United States. No greater idiocy was
ever written than that you cannot legis
late value into anything.
HAS GOLD DIVINE ATTRIBUTES?
There is a sound and scientific basis to
the charge that the McKiuley men
make gold their god. There are certain
attributes that belong to the deity alone,
One of those attributes is immutability.
God is the same yesterday, today and
forever. McKiuleyites ascribe this at
tribute to gold. They say it never
changes. It has the same value today
that it always had and always will have.
They asscribe to it an attribute of deity.
They make it a god. They call on all
the world to fall down aud worship it
They utter dire threats against all
those who refuse. Worse are they than
the Ephesians who for the space of three
hours cried out. "Great is Diana," for
they cease not at any time to cry out
"Great is Gold." Does gold have divine
attributes, or does it not?
IN DANGER OF A CUT.
The Evening News prints a letter from
one M. E. Turailktll to inform the people
of Nebraska that the Bryan meeting at
Columbus, Ohio, was a complete fiasco
and failure. He says the crowd did not
reach 20,000. Then he says:
"Our business men have, for several
years past, given open air entertain
mentsbywayof fireworks during fair
week and these exhibitions have, hereto
fore, attracted almost as large crowds
as did the Bryan exhibition.
Can the great city of Columbus, with
the densely populated surrounding coun
try, only attract 20,000 people to its
state fair? Omaha or Lincoln can beat
that three to one. The Bryan crowd
was less than 20,000. Columbus has
"heretofore attracted almost as large
crowds as the Bryan exhibition" during
fair weekl You will have to do better
than that, Mr. Tnrailkiil, or Hanna will

THE ALDKICH REPORT.
Of all the frauds ever perpetrated that
A Id rich report on tba constant rise in
wages ia the worst, yet it is the gold bug
bible. The main fraud in it is the use ol
tba term "rate of wages." According to
it the rata of wages of a plasterer and
brick layer is $5 a day, and the con
clusion is that plasterers and brick
layers make $1,500 a year. It doea not
state that plaaterers and brick layers in
this climate, are necessarially idle for
eix months in the year, and that their
wages per year is $750, instead of
Again it takes the wages of the best
organized unions, and leaves out the
whole farming and producing class
whose wages consist of the price their
products sell for in the wholesale market.
Preposterous fraud that it is, neverthe
less it is the gold bug bible.
PROOF OF ANARCHY.
Inventions have decreased the cost of
farm productions the goldbugs say, and
that caused the fall in prices. But gov
ernment records and experience of farm
ers show that machinery has only de
creased the cost of productions 2 per
cent since 1870, while prices have fallen
50 per cent. Between 1845 and 1870 the
increase in labor saving inventions was
marvelous, and much greater than since
1870. But during all that time the
price of farm products steadily rose.
Is it proof that because a man says
after being satisfied of these facts, that
there must be some other cause for the
fall in farm products than the invention
of machinery, that he is an anarchist?
The goldbugs claim that there is no
other proof needed.
HOW DO YOU LIKE IT?
Theodore Roosevelt in the September
number of the Review of Reviews, has
an article on the "Vice-Presidency in the
Present campaign." His characteriza
tions of Mr. Bryan and his supporters
give us a good insight into the views of
New Yorkers of the people of the south
and west and especially of the democrats
and populists. A few passages may give
ua a view of ourselves as others see us.
Of the republicans who support Mr.
Bryan he says "They do not believe in
sound finance and feel bound to
support the depreciated dollar even at
the cost of incidentally supporting
the doctrine that a mob should be al
lowed to do what it likes with immunity.
"Mr. Bryan, and Messrs. Sewell and
Watson are almost equally devoted ad
herents of the light weight dollar and of
a currency which shall not force a man
to repay what he has borrowed, and shall
punish the wrong-headed laborer, who
expects to be paid his wages in money
worth something, as heavily as the bus
iness man or farmer who is so immoral
as to wish to pay his debts." -
Again he says, "Thrift, industry and
business energy are qualities which
are quite incompatible with true
populistic feeling. Payment of
debts, like the suppression of riots, is
abhorrent to the populistic mind. Such
conduct strikes the populists as im
moral." And yet at least two-thirds of
the populists of the country are from
the middle class, from the farmers who
have always been looked upon by the re
publicans as the great stay of that party.
Talk about the democrats and populists
arousing class prejudices! It would be
hard to find anything to equal such
vaporings as those given above. Surely
the cultured Roosevelt is able to equal
the class whom he describes as follows:
'The men who object to government by
injunction' are as regards the essential
principles of government, in hearty
sympathy with their remote skin-clad
ancestors who lived in caves, fought
one another with stone headed axes,
and ate the mammoth and wooly rhi
noceros. ' They are not in sym
pathy with men of good minds and
sound civil, morality. Savages do not
like an independent judiciary. They
want the judge to decide their way, and
if he does not, they want to behead
him. The populists experience much
the "same emotions when they
realize that the judiceary stands be
tween them and plunder." "Mr.SewelPs
sympathizers are with the man who
saves mo; ey rather than with the man
who proposes to take it away when it
has been saved, and with the policeman
who arrests a violent criminal rather
than with the criminal. Such sympathy
puts him at a disadvantage in the popu
In speaking of Mr. Watson's followers,
he says "That a man should change his
clothes in the evening, impress these
people as signs of depravity instead of
merely trivial. A taste for learning and
cultivated friends, and a tendency to
bathe frequently, cause them the deepest
He says, "I am a good American with
a profound belief in my countrymen, and
I have no idea that they will deliberately
lower themselves to a level beneath that
of a South American republic by voting
for the preposterous farago of sinister
nousense which the populistic-democrat-ic
politicians at Chicaga chose to set up

The latest issue of Sound Currency, the
regular publication of the Wall Street
Reform Club, Is the most astounding
publication ever printed in the English
language. How any set of men could so
defy all decency, all official records, is
past comprehension. They can out-lie
the devil and give him 6,000 years the
On page 55 there are tables purport
ing to give the per capita circulation
each year from 1860 to 1896. In regard
to them it says:
"These tables have been compiled from
records of the department which were
made on or about the dates specified.
They include everything properly belong
ing in a statement relative to circula
tion, except minor coins,, which are not
stated because it is difficult to estimate
accurately the amount in use."
Then it gives the per capita circulation
in 1886, when the country was flooded
with money and every man's pocket was
full of it, as $18.99 per capita. If satan
ever told a lie equal to that, when was
it? Yet the statistics published by this
Wall street club are relied on as facts by
such learned gentlemen as John L. Web
ster and G. M. Lambertson.
THE PANIC OF 1873.
The panic of 1873 was the most ter
rible that this county had ever known
up to that date. It lasted for five full
years or until we remonetized silver and
began to Coin it again. It began when
we had the highest tariff ever known up
to that time, when the republicans were
in control of every department of the
government, when there was no Bryan
to destroy "confidence" by a "threat of
a change" as Dun & Co., say, and when
there were no populists or free silver
cranks to disturb business. What
caused that five years of panic, and why
did prosperity return and business re
sume as soon as we again began to coin
and pay out silver?
Dun shows 288 failures last week as
compared with 186 for the correspond
ing week last year, and says: "If such
are the fruits of partial impairment of
confidence, it may without depart
ure from a non-partisan attitude' be
asked, what would follow the change
which is only feared?"
The old moss back of 1860 was a wild
eyed radical in comparison' with the
moss back of 1896. The old fogy of the
sixties, it is true, put the cow catcher on
the hind end of the tiain to keep from
being run over, but the moss back of '96
stops the train and sends a flagman to
the rear. "The fear of a change" drives
the moss back into delirium. "Stop 'er
still, never change, never advance. Put
out the fires, and set all the breaks."
That's the moss back's idea. , , , '
But the Bryan train is on the track.
She comes with tremendous force, the
silver cow catcher is in front, and the old
moss backs will find themselves in the
ditch in the twinkling of an eye.
STRANGE SILVER MEN..
The Red Cloud Nation gives the editors
of free silver papers a good roasting for
advertising the State Journal. It asks:
"Why should any silver paper adver
tise a lying, disreputable daily which is
fighting for Mark Hanna and the money
grabbers of Wall street?"
The Nation refused to run the State
Journal ads, and gives as the reason
that "the State Journal's editorials are
dictated by Thurston, Hanna and the
goldbug crowd; hence we cannot assist a
subsidized paper, advocating a policy
we despise, and we wish our brothers of
the silver faith would take the same view
of the matter."
This paper has called attention several
times to the fact that populists and free
silver papers were doing this sort of
thing and wondered why.
The Rocky Mountain News and World
Herald both have a far more reliable
news service and are in. every way much
more valuable. If you want a daily ex
change, why not patronize your friends
instead of your enemies?
THE SIOUX IN JOURNALISM.
The Chadron Signal has started a
Sioux Indian department. A large part
of the paper is printed in the Sioux
language as are also many advertise
ments. Here is a news item in Sioux:

It is evident that "them injuns" don't
know how to spell. Carnegie isn't spelled
"Karnige" and "sin" is spelled with an
"s" and not with a "c," but getting the
two words together shows that they have
the right sense of the fitness of things.
The difference between Mexico and the
United States is simply this: A pound

as much. That is the sum of the whole

MR. DOLLIVER 8 SPEECH.
The editor of this paper went to hear
Mr. Dolliver at the Lansing theater Sat
urday night for the purpose of learning
what arguments one of the best republi
can speakers would present to the peo
ple in favor of the gold standard. He
was not only astonished, but a very
large part of that intelligent audience
was astonished at the statements made.
Mr. Dolliver certainly very greatly un
derrated the intelligence of the average
Nebraska citizen, be he republican, dem
ocrat or populist, or he would never
have dared to make the statements
which were the ground work of his
First, he declared in the most emphatic
manner, and without any qualification
whatever, that "This government can
not make money or regulate its value."
He made no attempt to defend this
position in in any way except to say
that when a man made that assertion to
his wife she remarked that it was
too good to be true. It is almost
unbelievable that a man would make
such a statement as that to an audience
in this city, but Mr. Dolliver said it. We
certainly have a thing called "money
Who made it? Does it grow on trees?
Did Mr. Dolliver think that the citizens
of Lincoln never heard of United States
mints where they "make money?"
It might do to make such a statement
as that to the Digger Indian, but not to
a Lincoln audience.
His next assertion was that silver dol
lars were full legal tender. Ho said this
over and over, and told how a man lost
$5 on s bet that they were. Did Mr,
Dolliver think that he could deceive a
Lincoln audience with that statement?
Did he think that we had never read the
law, which says that silver dollars are a
legal tender, EXCEPT OTHERWISE
PROVIDED IN THE CONTRACT?
But the most astonishing statement
of all was that there was a greater rise
in prices from 1882 to 1895 than there
was between 1860 and 187S.
Perhaps Mr. Dolliver had heard of the
extreme courtesy that citizens of Lin
coln always extend to invited guests,
and that gave him courage to think that
he might abuse that courtesy without
fear of results, by impugning the intelli
gence of every man in that audience.
His repudiation of that section of the
constitution which says that congress
shafl have power to regulate the value
of coin, which he says the government
cannot do,leaves him open to the charge

MARK BANNA'S POWER.
The charges involving the personal in
tegrity of Mr. McKinley, although seri
ous, can be very briefly stated." Hanna
bough up all the notes endorsed by Mr.
McKinley which went to Drotest fn the
famous Walker failure of 1893. Mr. Mc
McKinley was on Walker's notes to the
extent of over a hundred thousand dol
lars. When the failure came, Hanna
stepped to the front, got possession of
protested paper, settled the debts for
McKfnley, and today holds $118,000 of
McKinley's notes of hand. These notes
are now locked up in the vaults of the
Savings Bank of Cleveland, Ohio, Hanna
retaining possession of them in order to
keep his hold over McKinley, Hanna
could get judgment against KcKinley
in any court of law for the amount of
the notes. They remain unpaid and Mr.
Hanna refuses to return them to Mr
McKinley. He has another use for
them. Is it safe to elect a man in Mc
Kinley's position president of the United
GOLD MINERS VS. SILVER MINERS.
De Eduard Suess, the great German
authority on metals, and professor of
geology at the university of Vienna, in
closing his work on the future of silver
makes this remark:
"Why, you ask, shall we cast such
profit into the hands of the owners of
silver mines? Remember that you are
now casting the same profit into the
hands of the owners of gold mines and
washings. No man would lose by rehab
itation, and the whole world would be
"The question is no longer whether
silver will again become a full coinage
metal over the whole earth, but what
are to be the trials through which
Europe is to reach that point."
Thousands of free silver republicans,
democrats and populists have used in
their arguments almost these exact
words without knowing they had been
embalmed in a purely scientific work by
the greatest geologist of modern times.
THE SILVER BARONS.
There are not 500 men in the whole
United States engaged in exclusive Bilver
mining. The silver produced nearly all
comes from gold or lead mines in which
silver is a by-product. The demand
made and the reward offered to produce
one rich man in the whote United States
engaged in mining silver alone, has had
no takers. Tlie talk of the millionaire
silver miners is pure fabrication. There
is not one such man in the whole United
A lady in Cincinnati, writing to the ed
itor of this paper, in ' speaking of the
advertising Lincoln is getting through
Bryan's candidacy, says: "Lincoln is
right iu it nowadays, isn't she?" The
nasty birds fouling their own nests
around the State Journal are the only
ones we know of, who do not'think that
"Lincoln is in it nowadays."
What hurts the money power is
Bryan's determination to raise the Bilver
from a promise to pay gold to an
equality with gold itself. -

WERE THEY ANARCHISTS.
. Were Su turner, Lincoln and Jefferson
anarchists because they denounced the
supreme court and denied its infalibility?
Was Lincoln an anarchist when he said
of the Fred Scott decision at Springfield,
III., June 26, 1857:
"But we think the Dred Scott decision
is erroneous. He know the court that
made it has often overruled its own de
cisions, and we shall do what we can to
have it overrule this."
At Chicago, July 10, he said tne de
cision "is based upon falsehood in the
main as to the facts allegations of facts
upon which it stands are not facts at all
in many instances."
Further he said:
"Somebody has to reverse that de
cision, since it is made; and we mean to
reverse it, and we mean to do it peace
ably." Was Chas. Summer are anarchist
when he said of that supreme court de
cision: "I speak, what cannot be denied, when
I declare that the opinion of the Chief
Justice in the'ease of Dred Scott was
more thoroughly abominable than any
thing of the kind in the history of courts.
Then and there judicial baseness reached
its lowest point."
Was Thomas Jefferson an anarchist
when he wrote that letter to Mr. Jarvis
who had sent him a book in 1820 and
"You seem, in pages 84 and 148, to
consider the judges as the ultimate
arbiters of all constitutional questions
a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and
one which would place us under the des
potism of an oligarchy."
If Lincoln, Summer and Jefferson were
not anarchists when they said those
things about the supreme court, neither
is W. J. Bryan and his followers when
they say the same things.
