done more injury to the people's party
of this state than ten honest republi

The monstrous effort now being made
by Chairman Washburn of the National
populist committee, aided by the notor
ious Paul Van der Voort, to abandon
the silver issue and change the base of
the fighting ground for 1900 is not
meeting with favor among western pop
ulists. The silver issue is the one issue
that will enlist more support in there
form movement than all others. It is
the rock upon which the party has built
a national reputation, and it muststand
as the strongest plank in our platform.

Governor Bushnell on Monday defi
nitely announces his purpose to appoint
Mark Hanna as a senator of the United
States to succeed John Sherman. It is
an appointment utterly and conspicu
ously unfit to be made. It is the out
come of a complicated political dicker
which unhappily involves the president
himself, as our Canton dispatches on
Monday show. Mark Hanna has no pre
tensions whatever to statesmanship. He
has neither learning nor experience,
neither an acquaintance with public af
fairs nor skill in their conduct. His soli
tary claim upon attention is that he has
raised and disbursed a gigantic cam
paign fund for the debauch ment of Amer
ican politics. Without that claim upon
attention his appointment to the senate
would be ludicrous. With it that ap
pointment is a blistering scandal. New

Populists in congress are opposed to
the proposition tuat the party give up
the silver question. They, with the ma

as foolish in the extreme. Seneca(Kans.)
Why do a few professional reformers
desire to belittle and subordinate the
silver question in the next campaign?
Because the reformers came so near
winning in the last campaign on the sil
ver issue that they think there is danger
of such triumphant success in the next
great battle as will destroy their occu
pation .Silver Kn ight.

Death of a Democratic Senator Makes a
Republican Probable.
The republicans have been unexpect
edly favored in the senatorial contest in
Kentucky. John P. Sayler, a gold
standard democrat from Morgan couuty
died suddenly at his home March 14th.
This is the third time that a death has
occurred in the Kentucky legislature
during a senatorial contest. Senator
Sayler though a gold standard democrat
would have voted with the silver demo
crats to prevent the seating of four con
testing republicans whose votes are nec
essary to the election of a U. S. senator.
Sayler's death gives the republicans a
a majority of the uncontested members
and they will probably seat their con
testants which will practically insure the
election of a republican U. S. senator. It
is generally believed that the joint ballot
cannot take place before March 23d,
depending upon the ruling of Lieutenant
Governor Worthington.

Trans-Mississippi A ppropriation.
The bill that passed the house appro
priating $100,000 for a state exhibit at
the Trans-Mississippi exposition in Oma
ha contained a provision that before the
state money should be available for the
exhibition the managers of the exposi
tion must show to the satisfaction of the
governor, auditor and treasurer that
the sum of $200,000 had been paid into
the treasury of the exposition by the
stock holders. The senate reduced the
amount required to be paid in to $100,
000 and asked the concurrence of the
bousa. The house refused to concur and
appointed acommittee on conference'eom
posed of Messrs. Jenkins, Snyder of Ne
maha and Eager all of whom are bitter
ly opposed to the appropriation for the
exposition. If the committees cannot
agree and the senate will not recede the
bill will be killed. It is an interesting
condition and the only apparent solu
tion is for the senate to recede and al
low the amount required to be paid in
by the stock holders remain at $200,000.
It is generally admitted that the com
mittee appointed by the house will not
concede anything to the friends of the

Editor Ixdei'KNDE.nt: Dear Sir: In
your issue of the 4th iustyou take the
undersigned to task for clipping a batch
of articles from the Independent with'
out the proper credit. I wish to say
that the articles were clipped with the in
tention of placing them under one head
ing with the proper credit but became
separated and the credit unfortunately
overlooked, which the writer very much
regrets. Anything worth clipping is
worth crediting.
As to complaint of flings at the Inde
pendent since our defeat for chief clerk
by Mr. Eager, we wish to most emphat
ically deny. We spoke commendatory
of Mr. Eager in the News before and after
his election as well as congratulating
him in person after his success in the
caucus and besides I always referred to
the gentleman in a complimentary way
to members while making my canvass.
I consider the Independent a good
paper the best populist paper in the
northwest but I am not one ot those
who consider it infallible in all things
and shall not hesitate to criticise as in
my judgment deem prudent for the ad
vancement and final triumph of our
cause. Believe me
Yours fraternally,
George II. Reinhart,
' Ed. News.
The Independent publishes the above
letter from the desire to be perfectly fair.
It seems a little strange that in making
clippings one should from a paper
four years old. It also seems a little
strange that if the failure to give credit
one week were an oversight, that the
same oversight should be repeated the
next week and nothing said about it.
However, let that pass.
So far as criticism is concerned the
Independent welcomes it. We are all
prone to err and a man's best friend is
one who honestly advises him of his
short-cominirs. The same is true of a
paper. We like those criticisms to be
open, however, so that we may know
wherein we have erred. We dislike in
sinuations. The Independent does not desire to
do any injustice to the editor of the
News, but in future respectfully asks him
when clipping the writings of this editor
to give credit. Ed. Independent.

Thinks the Extra Session of Congress
Will do Its Work Speedily.
In an interview recently published in
the New York World, Senator Henry M,
Teller gives it as his opinion that the
tariff measure reported by the house
committee and passed by that body
would receive very little opposition in
the senate. Many of the silver senators
while not supporters of high tariff from
principle will vote for the measure in
order to give the present administra
tion the opportunity to frame the tariff
according to its own liking. The demo
cratic senators will make short speeches
in opposition to the bill, to preserve the
time-honored record of the democratic
party on this subject. In reply to the
question as to the necessary time re
quired to pass the bill, the senator
thought it should pass by June 1. lie
gave it as bis opinion that the senate
would amend the bill but very little. In
reply to a question as to the sugar scbed.
ule he said, "it seems the general im
pression that the sugar schedule would
be fixed at 1 cents per pound." This
will probably increase the revenue by
nearly $25,000,000 per year if the con
sumption of sugar remains the same as
at present, but Mr. Teller added "it
sometimes happens that an increase of
tariff is followed by a decrease in the rev
enues through a falling off in importa
tions. If times improve the consump
tion of sugar will be just as great as it
is now."

Small Men.
The populist party will stand by Chair
man Butler and Secretary Edgerton no
matter what the little Beven by nine fel
lows who call themselves the "reform
press" have done at Memphis. Three
fourth's of the populist editors do not be
long to this organization and never did.
The Memphis meeting did not represent
the party neither did it represent the
populist press. '
These are the same fellows who set up
the idiotic howl before the last national
convention met about Taubeneck,
Weaver, Allen and other true and hon
ored leaders being traitors. They never
tired dilating on how Weaver, Allen &
Co., wanted to destroy the Omaha plat
form, but when the great national con
vention met, it honored these same men
by putting them to the front and heed
ing their counsel.
The St. Louis convention made only
one mistake, and that was in nominat
ing Tom Watson for the vice presidency.
It should have nominated a level headed
man with brains who would have tiiado
an honorable campaign in defense of the
party and the grand platform. Instead
of this it nominated a turbulent old
"fish woman" who spent his time airing
his grievances and exposing his political
posterior. His late telegram congratu
lating Pitchard, a gold standard repub
lican who defeated a true blue populist
for United States Senator in North Car
olina, by the votes of brother traitors
like Watson himself, shows what man
ner of man he is.
The populist party has grown too big
and too brainy to be controlled by such
small men.
Coxey recognized this fact and had the
decency to step out. It must be a source
of great gratification to the reform press
association to know that Coxey has
