The Reform Press association is in a

The first bank failure recorded for some
time came just a week after the election
of McKinley. It was -the Iowa Savings
bank of Sioux City, with liabilities of
half a million.

, ORGANIZED LA BOB.
A good many populist papers are
making sarcastic rematks about the
labor vote in the great cities. If these
shafts are intended for organised labor,
the Inmcpendest puts in here and now
a vehement protest. The returns, as
far as the goldbug sews concerns have
permitted us to know what they are,
show that organised labor did its ful1
duty and polled a much larger percent
of its vote against 'plotocraey than did
the farmers of the United States, and
they did it in spite of the pressure
brought upon them which never has and
never ean be brought upon farmers.
AH that a working man baa is his job.
On it depends Bis life and that of his
wife and children. Think of his position
when his goldbug employer . tells him be
must vote for McKinley or lose it.
Under present conditions be knows
that hs may never get another. When
a man under such conditions voted for
Dryan he was a hero, and if he failed to
do it this paper has no hard words for
The awful pressure that was brought
to bear upon these men, the farmers can
not realize. The force of it here in Lin
coln can be somewhat understood by the
number of yellow badges worn all through
the campaign by Bryan men. There
were over 1,000 men in Lancaster county
who wore McKinley buttons, yellow rib
bons, marched in the republican parades
and contributed to goldbug clubs, who,
on election day, thanks to 'the Austra
lian ballot law, were able to vote for
Bryan and still not lose their jobs.
Again it was organized labor that
gave us the Australian ballot, without
which our liberties would be gone. It
was labor organizations that first pro.
posed it and fought it through the
various state legislatures.
Organized labor cannot beheld re
sponsible for the vote of the foreign riff
raff of the great cities. That class is the
mortal enemy of organized labor. The
republican party has gathered into its
fold the ignorant, the vile, the criminal,
of the great cities and votes them like
cattle, but organized labor is not re'
sponsible for that condition of affairs.
A good many of the pop editors are
talking right out about what ought to
tm done by the next legislature in the
way of economic administration. That's
right. Keep on pounding at It.

nearly all made earnest appeals for old

A couple of prize fighters who voted
for McKinley cane to Lincoln to "open
a mill" according to McKinley's promise,
but the police stopped it, Now they are

There is reported the proverbial small
deficit in state fair finances. The next
thing the reform forces .in this state
should go after is the management of
' the state fair. Having cleaned out the
Augean stables in the state capitol, it
might be wise to disinfect the sheep and
cattle pens at the state fair a little.
. The goldbug papers made the thought
less multitudes believe that the whole
world would fall apart if we altered
law or two in the United States, and
men would turn into wild beasts, burn,

A RUB III PRICES.
Nearly every pool and trust, imme
diately declared a rise in prices tbe next
day after McKinley was elected. That is
the sort of rise (be goldbugs wanted and
which the populists said would folllow
the election of the trusts candidate It
is the only sort of arise that will ever
occur under the gold standard. Read
the following dispatch ond see how they
did it in tbe iron and steel trust: .
"Pittsburg, Nov. 5. The predicted
advance in the price of iron and steel,
coincidently with tbe defeat of free silver
began today, and a meeting of tbe steel
billet pool has been called for Tuesday
to consider the advisability of changing
prices to meet the new condition of affairs.

$12.25 per ton in the Mahoning . and

Mr. Coxey Is a nice man, gentlemanly
in his manners, philanthropic and all his
sympathies are with the poor, but he
knows no more of tbe science of politica1
economy than a South Sea Islander. He
has been a very great detriment to the
cause of reform and seems to be inca
pable of learning anything by experience,
Already he has begun another attack
on the populist platform. In the last
issue of his paper he says:
"The silver issue is as dead as Julius
CiKsar or Marc Anthony, and who would
seek to revive it, or set up its corpse to
burn incense to it, should be branded as
a tool of the Rothschilds and the re
publican gold democratic party."
Some effective measure should be taken
to rid the party of him and his paper.
His dreamed out plan to make the
world prosperous with the unlimited is
sue of nouinterest bearing bonds, is so
childish and silly that any man who has
conquered the least knowledge of money
can not be induced to make a reply to it.
If Mr Coxey wants to run a party by
himself, he has a right to do it. but he
has no right to call himself a populist,
and make the peoples party subject to
the odium of being in any way respon
sttle for his idiotic dreams and childish
ve bad Hoped that the experience
which he has passed through would have
taught him that money was solely a cre
ation of law, a legal decree, that the ma
terial on which that decree was printed
did not in any way effect tbe value of
"money," that its value was wholly de
pendent on the "quantity," but the idea
qever seemed to have entered his head
He advocates just what the goldbugs
charge us with and we never have sanc
tioned and never will sanction, that Is,
an unlimited issue of paper money, which
would be the result of his bond scheme.
Because New York succeeded in selling
a lot of bonds the other day the State
Journal reasons that there is plenty of
money in this country. It is safe to
ay, however, that it was not American
money that purchased those bonds. No
one will deny that the selection of an ad
ministration that is controlled and
owned by the bond dealers will readily
stimulate the sale of bonds, just as the
legalising of burglary would stimulate
the sale of jimmies and dark lanterns.

BEATING THE RECORD.
Some of the McKinley boom press dis
patches are as easy to see through as a
pane of window glass. Take the follow

New York World under the head, "Thou

Agent Ruggles, of the Wisconsin Central,
announced his road had today checked
more commercial baggage than any
other day in 1896. The same statement

As every drummer on the road had
been ordered home to vote, is it any
wonder that the next day nr two after
election the railroads should check wore
commercial baggage than any other day
in the year? That occurs after every
presidential election. There ia'jo liar

The reluctant agreement of Great
Britain to arbitrate the Venezuelan

States government based its claim of
right to interfere, bad never received
recognition outside of the United States.
This acknowledgment of the American
doctrine by the British government is a
practical acknowledgement of the su

out the western hemisphere. The con
cession cannot but wring the proud
heart of boastful Britain. The result of

EXPELLING THE TRAITORS.
The Jacksonian club of Omaha met
last Saturday night and began the work
of driving out tlje traitors. They began,
very properly with the big guns first.
Preliminary steps were taken for the ex
pulsion from tbe democratic party of J,
Sterling Morton, J. M. Woolworth, Judge
Wakeley, T.J. Mali oney, Tote Castor,
A. J. bawyer, J. u. Crawford and some
forty more of the lesser lights, who
whooped it up for Palmer, voted for
McKinley and fought Bryan. Let tb
good work go on. The populists had
only three traitors. Bill Dech, Marsh
Elder and Paul VanDervoort, and
settled their hash a long time ago.

the vote lor McKinley in Nebraska this
year was about 100,000, while that for
Harrison in 1892 was but 87,000 and
tbe vote of the apposition was about the
same, or 112,000, in both years, the
World Herald makes a somewhat
tartling showing of election figures. It
"In Ohio McKinley received 527,
945 votes, Bryan 475,995. In 1892
Harrison's Ohio vote was 405,187
Cleveland's 404,115. In 1895 Ohio'
gubernatorial vote was: Republican
427,141; democrat 334,519. Bryan
seems to have received in Ohio 70,000
more votes than Harrison received, and
about oy.uuu more than Cleveland re

000 more votes than the republican
candidate for governor in Ohio received
in 1 895. At the same time, Mr. Mc
Kinley received about 122,000 votes
more than Harrisou received, and about
100,000 more than tbe republican candi

18.J5. lnla Uhio's total vote was

DEHORNING THEIR GHOSTS.
The eastern goldbug newspapers are
now,someof them somewhat shamefaced
ly, dehorning the ghosts they have for
months been throwing upon the canvas to
friffhten their readers. When Hon. W,
J. Bryan was nominated for the presi
dency nearly every influential eastern
paper and a large proportion of the
western metropolitan journals burst
simultaneously Into a more vicious
chorus of abuse than ever assailed a
public man in the history of this or any
country. He ' was denounced as an
anarchist and a demagogue, and some
papers even went so far as to challenge
his personal honesty. He was accused
of almost every crime in the category of
sin. including the defrauding of a dis
abled national bank, and drunkenness.
His ambition was pictured as positively
omnivorous, and he was proclaimed to
be the enemy of his country.
Now that this representative western
giant has been defeated, the great fright
of the goldocrats and their servile tools,
the eastern newspapers, has subsided.
and some of the latter are endeavoring
to square themselves with their readers
by attempting to do justice to Mr,
Bryan's great honesty of purpose, cour
ageous dignity and matchless ability,
They are dehorning their popular politi
In a recent issue the Boston Post, a
gold standard organ, says:
"Mr. Bryan's attitude is a rebuke alike
to those who have charged him with an
archy and revolutionary purposes, and
those who have rashly threatened vio
lence to rectify supposed wrongs against
him in the election. Were Mr. Bryan
such a man as some of his injudicious
opponents have portrayed him, he could
have brought tbe republic into great
danger. But he has set an example of
good citizenship. While it has strenu
ously opposed him on tbe free silver
issue, the Post takes off its hat in hon
orable respect to William J. Bryan."
The Springfield (Mass.) Republican, a
single standard organ which excited ad
miration during the campaign by its pro-
teat against the general and unreason
able abuse of Mr. Bryan, says:
"It is only fair to say that the bear
ing of Mr. Bryan has been such as to in
vite and hold the popular respect. It is
possible to dissent from many of his
opinions and yet recognize the brilliant,
persistent, desperate fortitude that has
made his leadership pervasive beyond
precedent. It was his fight, and he has
shrunk from no labors and spared no ex
penditure of strength in the battle which
has ended in his defeat. Out of the ma
terial at its command the Chicago con
vention made no mistake in committing
its cause to the orator who carried its
favor by storm. No other man could
have led its disorganized and clashing in
terests with the same courage and un
tiring faith, or directed a crude campaign
to any better results. That tbe faith of
this man in his cause has ben unques
tioned and unfailing no one need ques
Wherever Mr. Bryan went, the people
needed no other proof than bis own ap
pearance, deportment and utterances to
be convinced that he is neither an an
archist, nor a demagogue. - His face was
a certificate of good character, and his
lips intuitively bespoke his great honesty
of purpose and surpassing wisdom and
In another four years the large majori
ty of those who were misled by slanders
of the gold standard press will have
realized tbe deception practiced upon
them in the interest of a cause which
never fought an open fight, and against
the man who said that against the cor
ruption of the republican party he would
"place the intelligence and patriotism of
the common people." In spite of con
spirators and conspiracies the people are
bound to win in tbe end. That end is
not far distant, and when it comes the
calumnies of the self-discredited press
will be heavily discounted.
The ghosts will have lost their horns.
Bryan Might EmUt Have Won.
An examination of the figures of last
Tuesday's vote results in some very
curious and interesting revelations. It
will be remembered that tbe Post, from
the very first, insisted that Mr. Bryan's
chances were good, that at any stage of
tbe campaign his election was a possi
bility, and that McKinley's election, al
though we regarded it as highly proba
ble, depended, alter all, upon a very nar
row and uncertain '. margin. As unan
swerable proof that we were right in this
we now call attention to the following
table showing how a change of little
more than 25,000 votes, distributed
over nine states, would have elected
Bryan, notwithstanding his big majori
States, votes ities
California....... 9 5,000

South Dakota 4 300
West Virginia 6 12,000
Wyoming 3 200
Total electoral vote, 60.
Total McKinley majorities, 50,500.
Now, suppose there had been these
changes from McKinley to Bryan in the
different states respectively: !
Kentucky ..- 251
North Dakota.... 2,510
South Dakota.. 151
West Virginia 6,010
. These changes would have given every
one of the nine states to Bryan, and,
adding their sixty votes to the 167 ha.
got elsewhere, would have made his
strength in the electoral college 227
three more than he needed to make him-
It is a serious reflection that

matter of fact the change of 25,026.
votes would have accomplished the re
sultis all that stood between the el
tion of McKinley and the election of
Bryan. We commend this reflection to
the gentlemen who are throwing up
their hats and screaming themselves
black in the face with nonsense about
landslides and similar absurdities. Mr.
McKinley got tremendous majorities in
New England, New York, Pennsylvania,
Iowa, Michigan and Illinois, but in the
rest of the country he has a mighty nar

assumes the reins oi government, it is
said the senator has several unique ideas
as to just how the offices should be di
tribnted and that he may possibly byre
a sufficient pull with the major to carry
them into execution. On the yother
hand there are those who aver
that the senator's influence with
the next president, which has heretofore
been reckoned as Al, has diminished
somewhat since the 3d inst., When his
state went overwhelmingly for the silver
champion. . ,
It is believed that the senator will also
recommend John C. Wharton of Omaha,
whom many staunch republicans of that
city are desirous of seeing placed in the
position made vacant by the late Judge
Dundy on the federal bench.
It is now conceded that the next na
tional senate, being strongly republican
will not be very likely to confirm the ap
pointment of any democrat named by
Grover Cleveland and that a republican
will ultimately be chosen seems inevita
ble. The opinion seems to prevail here
that Grover will appoint some gold dem
ocrat in the hopes that the senate, being
of much the same faith, will confirm the
nomination, but in the event of its fail
ure to do so, Mr. Wharton or some
other republican whose name has al
ready been mentioned will in ail prob'v
bility be given tbe place. (
It miarht be stated that there are many
who believe that a dark horse will even
tually bob np and secure tbe much cov
eted place, one whose name has- not thus
far been mentioned in this connection,
but who will doubtless develop much
strength when the proper time comes.
