WHAT OF THE NIGHT?
H. W. Hardy Discusses Bad Boys and
Very Much Woise Men.
Editor Post: The long dark four
years of night is breaking, so the repub
licans say. The last is already streaked
with light and confidence. New trusts
are being formed which mean more mil
lionaires. A higher tariff Is also talked
of, which means a higher price for what
we buy, sure. The coming four years are
bound to be years of high tariff, trusts
and syndicates. Well, we are glad that
prosperity may come to a lew. Bryan
would have knocked the stuffin' out of
trusts then where would we have been?
The best medicine for trusts is free trade
or the article in trust Take the tariff
off window glass for a year, and let the
glass trust hump. Then for tl.e coal
trust, let the government open up a few
coal mines, pay good wages aad iuterest
on the investment and sell direct to the
consumer by the car load at cost, then
see how many millions the coal trust
would make. Six millions is the esti
mated profit this year over last. At the
same time wages are going down and
cheap foreigners coming in. Corpora
tions, protection and trusts have become
the framework of our republic and what
shall the fruit be? Our opinion for years
has been that this power had got as by
the throat and there was no use in try
ing to shake them off. For a month be
fore election we did have a little hope,
but alasl we found that fifteen million
dollars had bonght a million votes.
Nnw the nlnntrri tar h nil ha of farmers
2nd non-tariff-protected mechanics have
discovered that the republican platform
does not cover the mouey question and
have called a "currency reform" conven
tion to meet in Indianapolis January 12
to see what more can be done to crush
the farmers. Every change, alter this,
that is made, at least for four years, is
going to be made in the interest of the
money lender and the fixed income grab
ber. Why should it not be so as long
as the last election was carried by those
men and their mouey? It the farmers
could go into a trust, or if a tariff or
bounty could help them as much, then
there would be some show of equality be
fore the law, but as it is farmers are too
numerous. Six hundred can form a
trust, but six millions can't. So the
( farmer must stand as an apple tree by
the wayside to be shook and clubbed by
We are told that the voters in Colo
rado were "brutally" selfish because they
voted out there for their own local in
terests. Pennsylvania, New York and
New England always vote for the whole
country they are patriotic (?). Local
interests are buried when they go up to,
the ballot box. The tariff in no way is
a local question. All Massachusetts
wants a tariff for is to protect the corn
and cotton of the west and south.
A lot of Kearney boys have cut sticks,
they say, and all because their head boss
is about to be torn from them. That
cannot be the reason, for their boss has
been away running politics a good share
of the time anyway. We hope they will
get a set of officers and teachers who will
not smoke, chew and swear, and then
wallop the boys, for doing the" same
things. A man can't run politics and
that school too. We were in hopes the
authorities would conclude to place a
woman in charge of the girls at Geneva.
A man cannot instruct and train young
girls as they should be. A father cau't
train his own girls as the mother can.
I would as quickly think of letting an
alligator brood my chickens as to turn
girls off with man's instructions. The
home for the friendless is the best man
aged state institution we have, and all
managed by women. Some politicians
really think that men ought to have the
job of rocking those fifty cradles and
have tried to take the institution out of
the women's hands. H. W. Hardy.
Useful Empire State Invention That is
A new aid toeducation and intellectual
development has appeared in the shape
of travelling libraries. The empire state
must be given credit for pointing the
way in this, as well as in other forms of
progress. The New York legislature in
1892 authorized the regents to lend for
a limited time selections 6f books from
the duplicated department of the state
library or from books especially given or
bought for this purpose, to public
libraries under state supervision, or to
communities meeting required condi
Ten libraries of one hundreds volumes
each were at once selected and prepared
for circulation. The conditions under
which they can be secured are very
simple. The libraries can be lent to the

such a movement. During the first year
of their travels the libraries became the
starters of six public libraries. In six
months there were issued from the trav

books was made most carefully, ine

According to the Century Dictionary
bimetallism means ''the use of two met-
as money at relative values set by
legislative enactment; the union of two
metals in circulation as money at a fixed
rate:" Mr. Bryan knows that that re
sult has never been achieved by the free
coinage of silver in this country or any
where else. W nen silver was cheap and
the coinage of that metal free, as was
the case in the early history of the gov
ernment, gold was driven out of circu
lation. When silver was high, as was
the ease during roost of the period be
tween 1792 and 1873 that metal was
withheld from circulation. When silver
was high as was the case during most of
the period between 1792 and 1873 that
metal was withheld from circulation and
the consequence was gold monometal
lism, the only time lu the history of
this country that the only possible kind
of bimetallism has been since 1873,
which the coinage of silver on account
of the government and the volume lim
ited to an amount which could be main
tained at a parity just as other token
money, or promise-to-pay money, is
keot at par." Kansas City Star.
Yet the Star will insist that values
cannot be "setbylegislativeenactment,"
that you canuot legislate value into
anything, and tries to make people be
lieve that silver bullion, between 1792
and 1873, and since, was relatively
dearer or cheaper than gold bullion be
cause of something else than "legisla
Silver in its days of cheapness never
drove gold out of circulation in the
United States. A chosen inspection of
what meagre facts are obtainable will
show any reasonable man that scaly
bank currency drove both gold and
silver money out of circulation into hid
ing places. "
, "Relatite values set by legislative
enactment in foreign countries caused
our silver bullion and much of ourcoined
silver to go abroad subsequent to 1834
and prior to 1873. Legislative enact
ment in foreign countries and this coun
try in 1873 and 1884 cut off a large uae
for silver bullion; hence, the price fell.
The supply and demand theory that
papers of the Star type formerly used as
a club over the silver man's head, is a
veritable boomerang when taken bold of
at the demand end. "Why, supply and
demand regulate the price of everything"
was formerly the cry; but now that
thinking people see that by legislation a
use can be created or destroyed; that
use creates demand and demand and
supply together regulate price. These
fellows skirmish around to find some
mysterious other thing that they say
makes one metal immutable as God
himself and the other shifting as the
sands of the sea.
Buymetalliem and byemetallism are
not what Mr. Bryan and Jiis followers
are seeking just plain bimetallism, the
use of two metals as money at relative
values set by legislative enactment, is
what they ask; printing a sixteenth of
au ounce of paper with a promise to pay
one dollar in gold does not set the rel
ative values of that quality of paper
and gold bullion, nor does the redemp
tion of gold coin of a piece of stamped
silver 412 grains standard constitute
bimetallism. It is not the use of two
metals as money at relative values set
by legislative enactment. There is no
value set on the silver metal in that
piece at all it merely represents a gold
dollar and depends upon that gold dol
lar for its value. ,'':
It is surely a waste of qnite .valuable
material to use silver for a substance on
which to print a promise to pay in gold
coin, paper is vastly cheaper and much
more convenient. As between silver
promise-to-pay money and paper prom
ises, we'll take the paper every time.
And as between "bimetallism and buy
metallism," we'll take the former.,

ONE OF THE BEST FEATURES-
Of the Pyramid Pile Cure.
Is the fact that it cures every form of
Piles without one particle of pain. This
desirable point is not obtained by the
use of injurious opiates which simply
deaden and paralyze the nerves of , the
parts and make matters worse in the
long run. But it is done solely by its
remarkable healing and soothing effects.
And while it thus gives immediate re
lief, at the same time the disease is not
merely checked, but a radical cure is
And the point we want to make clear
is that all this is done without a parti
cle of pain.
This fact is one reason for the great
popularity of the Pyramid Pile Cure and
constitutes one very great difference be
tween it and almost any other kind of
treatment for piles.
Every kind of surgical operation for
piles is excrutiatingly painful besides en
dangering the life, of the patient and in
most cases is not to be compared with
the Pyramid Cure, neither in making
successful cures without pain nor in
cheapness and safety.
The Pyramid Pile Cure has been be
fore the public too long, and its merits
recognized by too many people to allow
it to be classed with the many salves,
suppositories, pills, etc., and you run no
risk in trying it, as is often the case with
new and untried preparations.
If you are ever troubled with any form
of piles or.rectal disease do not forget
the Pyramid Pile Cure. Prepared by the
