t looks aa if the closing days of the
ministration of Attorney Geueral
I i. - 'cnrchill ia likely to develop one of
tioae scandals which the State Journal
is so anxious to see the populists avoid
tils winter. Some dajs ago the tele
crania announced that a motion had
ten Id in the federal supreme court to
advance the maximum rate case to an
early bearing. The hearing of this
motion has been set for the third Mon
day in January. The motion was upon
astipulation entered into by Attorney
General Churchill on behalf of the state
. and Hon. J. M. Woolworth, who repre
sents the railroads, the former acting in
pursuance of a resolution adopted by
the state board of transportation abont
...two weeks after the recent election.
" This resolution was as follows:
X "Whereas, It is for the best interest of
) the people of this same state that the
maximum freight cases now pending in
the supreme court of fhe United States
should be speedily detcniinfd, and
realizing the impossibility of the present
attorney. general of this state to make a
trip to Washington during bis term of
oQce to present the same; and realising
that we have done all in ourf .wer to
hare them determined,, and that our
successors will soon be in charge and be-
' lieving that these cases should have the
t personal attention of the attorney-
. general of the , state as well as that of
the special council, be it therefore '
I "Resolved, That the presentj attorney
sf general be instructed to arrange with
counsel for the several companies for as
early a hearing aft possible, considering
all uiw circuuiBittiiuen, alter iuo uun-
When it is remembered that the pres
ent attorney general finishes his term of
service early in January, and that this
resolution was adopted after it was
known that lie would so finish, there is
room for speculation iu the above. ,

Lincoln, Dec. 10. Under the headline
of "Poor Kansas," the Illimis Btaats
Zeitung, edited by Postmaster Hesing at
Chicago, says that citizens of Kansas
cannot get any money and that they
are cut off from all business as a con
sequence of the last election, because

they voted the populist ticket In con
clusion the Staata Zeituug says: "As
long as Kansas ia ruled by populist
finance quacks, as long as men with
populist sentiments have the deciding
word in legislature and courts, so long
will capital shun the state and its citi
zens.its enterprises will suffer and Kansas
will go tutber back than in the last three
years, and this means not only Kansas
but every state which declared itself for
. A more cynical, devilish scheme of
tyranny to subjugate and ruin honest
people, lor no othercause than that they
dared to vote against the will of des
pots, was never invented. For three
years Kansas and Nebraska had crop
failures, so that many families which
had for years worked hard to break up
the raw prairie, thereDy opening un
developed natural resources, were com
pelled to leave their homes, so that the
rest of the people could hardly
make their living; and now as they gtjt
their first crop, and might revive, if they
but had a little time, these insatiable,
greedy, despotic Shylocka try to enslave
them forever by robbing tnem 01 me
fruits of their hard labor, and as we
judge by the malicious pleasure of the
Illinois Staats Zeitung, the hellish scheme
will be executed to the very letter 11 the
government doesn't interfere.
For years these snyiocics ruiea tne
western Btates and plundered state,
connty and town treasuries, while cor
porations, trusts, etc., systematically
sucked the life blood of the people, thereby
creating misery, the like of which hardly
exists in auy despotic state, and now as
the people try to draw on this yoKe,
these tyrants try to eternalize their ab
solute rule by expelling the people from
their homes and ruining thousands of
happy families by degrading them to
lawless beggars who must tramp from
town to town and hunt in gutters and
alleys for something to eat. At the same
time carloads of such perishable goods
as meat, fish, vegetables, etc., are
thrown into the rivers because poor peo
ple have not the few cents with which to
buy them. '.
With contempt we look at uncivilized,
barbaric savages who kneel before
wooden and stone idols, crocodiles,
serpents, . etc., and worship
them as their gods, and even
sacrifice their men, but at the same
time, we, the so-called civilized nations,
crawl on our bellies before well filled
money bags and sacrifice to them mil
lions of precious lives. Each of them
could be saved by giving them a single
piece of gold with an eagle stamped
upon it. All this occurs only to make
a few already well-filled money bags
of our insatiable Shylocks even fuller.
What else are our Vanderbilts.Goulds,
Astors, Huntingtons, Havemeyers,
Rockefellers, Carnefcies, Pullmans,
Clevelands, etc., than beastly jugger
nauts who bathe themselves in humau
blood? Statisticians say that a
common tamuy neeus tiuuui u

figured out that Cleveland made over
$5,000,000 since he became president.
This means nothing else then than
that 12,500 families, or about 60,000
men, women ana cnuuren, mum nave
been robbed of their means of living for
a whole year that he could make this
profit. And people wonder where all

TO HOLD A CONFERENCE
Omaha Free Silver Men Call for One
to Occur in Lin
coln. TO EFFECT AN ORGANIZATION
Of the Nebraska State Free Silver
League for Educational
January 6 the Date.
The free silver advocates iu Omaha
hare issued a challenge to t he friends of
the cause all over Nebraska to rally ia
response to .the declaration by Hon. W.
Bryan, made just after the election.
of tht purpose of the free silver people to
at once begin a campaign of eduia
looking to results four years hence. The
following call has been issued:
"Believing it to be impossible to
restpre prosperity in any permanent
degree to the now prostrate industries
and business of the country or to save
the masses of the people of the United
States from further and greater spolia
tion and ruin except by a change in the
present monetary standard and policy.
"And that, therefore, tne money ques
tion, especially as involving the resto
ration of silver to free and unlimited
coinage, equally with gold, into full legal
tender money at the ratio of lo to 1, as
under the law prior to 1878, regardless
of the action of any other nation, over
shadows every other question and must
remain the paramount political issue of
the immediate future or until settled.
"And also believing that it is only
through organization and systematic
education that the masses of the people
can be brought to see the fallucy and
ruinous effects of the present system, or
that they can be united for its over
throw and to ad oot a better system.
"Therefore, we, the undersigned citi
zens of Omaha, Neb., regardless of past
or present party affiliation, and for the
purpose of effecting a more perfect union
and organization of all parties for sys
tematic education and work in propa
gating these principles among the people
unite in Issuing a call for a state confer
enceand invitation to participate there
in of all advocates of bimetallism, to be
held at the capital city of Lincoln, Lan
sing theater, Wednesday, January 6,
18) commencing at 2 p. ni at which
conference it is proposed to organize a
Nebraska state free silver league, also
provide for local auxiliary leagues
throughout the state, and to consider
such other monetary questions as may
properly come before said conference.
"It is proposed that in said conference
each county in the state shall be entitled
to three delegates at large and one ad'
ditional delegate for every 2o0 votes
or major fraction thereof cast for the
Bryan tree silver electors at the election
November 3, 1896, said delegates to be
chosen by a county convention or com
mittee in which members of the people's
independent party, free silver democrats
and free silver republicans shall uuite
and have fair and equitable representa
tion according to their relative strength
in each county, as the delegates chosen
ought also to be equally representative
of all parties. -v
