The following was an address delivered
bjf Dr. S. K. King before tne social
Science club in Lincoln last week:
"This Is a question which has arisen
and ben considered by many a logical
mind. Answers without some qualify
ing conditions bare been almost invar
iably in, the negative for more than
twenty years. '
Thin question never arose and stalked
to the front in such ghostly apparel
as when Rutherford B. Hayes was
by fraud placed in the presidential
chair to which the people had elected
Samuel J. Tilden. The war ol the rebell
ion scarcely presented this question at
all, the question was, shall this repub
lic be maintained as one, or shall it be
twrmll rd to divide and exist as two?

SHOULD BE MOKE EXPLICIT.
The Omaha Bee Claims that the re
publican party " has cleared Itself
of all guilt, in connection with the defal
cations at the state houoe, by the repu
diation of Messrs. Moore and Bartley.
As yet "we only have the Bee's statement
that they have been repudiated. It will
require more evidence than that to con
vince the public that the republican
party has repudiated them, or any other
of their numerous defaulters. In sup
port of our statement we would suggest
the fact to the Bee that the last act of
the republican party in the city of Oma
ha was the election : of a well known de
faulter to be mavor of that city. The
World-Herald was justified in the follow
iug statement to which the Bee takes ex

flmr Hto tfl warrants should bediscounted
,'- id left floating to bear a kighrateof
interest while the state had thousands
. .qf dollars lyjutf idle, so far as the state
was concerueu. ui ","
The Bee in reply says:
"It is characteristically mendacious
for the recognised organ of the late state
hnimA pinir to attempt to mislead the
nnhlin into the belief that it was Bart-
fflv'a ' rennblicanism that made him a
irma anI adalanlter. , While republican
papers have unanimously repudiated
Bartley, denounced hie betrayal of pun.
lie trust and party treachery and fear,
lesely voiced the demand of all good cit
i..n. inr hin nrnmnt and vigorous pros
ecution.the World-Herald has contended
uaoif with a few oreneral remark" about
"republican methods" and passed over
in silence the lenient treatment accorded
ho.l(rH bv fusion state officers.
Every political party may be
ri scraced bv men wno receive iavnr ui
it hnnda. but it takes courage and con
anion tinna ffavntion to public duty to
bring the offenders to strict justice."
The Bee says the republican papers
have unanimously denounced Baitley,
and asserts that the fusion state officers
have accorded him lenient treatment.
Perhaps some of the republican papers
admit that Bartley ie short in his ac
counts, and denounce him. They did
that in the case of Hill, Dan Laner and
other notorious defaulters, but the re
publican party did not, during the thirty
years that it was iu control in all the
state departments, succeed in convict
ing any of lis many criminals, ua me
contrary the leaders of the party upheld
and defendod them. If they have repu
diated Moore and Hartley, it is the flrt
case in the history of the party in this
The Bee charges that the fusion hgi.
lature and state officers have been len
ient with republican defaulters. The
legislature appointed a committee with
full ow-r to net in the matter, That
committee is at work now. The tuolon
attorney-general, reprinting the state
officers ri terred to by the IW, has had
Mr. Moore arreted and he 1 now under

The regents of the State' University
have also been using the knife. The rea
sons given are insubordination, incom
petence and economy. But it rather
looks as though economy did not pre
dominate in the mixture. A sort of
military discipline ia necessary in such
ashools. Obey orders and complain
through your superiors to the throne of
power, should be the policy of every
under officer. If wrong and injustice are
too unbearable, resign and give tne pub-
lie your reason for resigning.
The dismissal of the Beatrice feeble
minded gang of office holders for quar
reling and correcting children is to be
commended. The knife is an instrument
of health many times. Clean both sides
is usually the best way. It Is not neces
essary to know who was the most to
blame. .The good of the Institution and
the honor of the state are the things to
be looked after. Of course iniunctiona

Tha Cotton Crop of 1898.
The following is taken from a circular!
sent out by the United States depart-
ment of agriculture. It shows the1
enormity of the cotton industry jn the1
soutnern states: .
"The statements furnished the depart
ment of agriculture by all the railway
and water transportation companies
show that from September 1, 1808, to
February J, 1WJ7, the total actual
movement of cotton from the states of
production to ports, northern and west
ern mills, Canada, Mexico, and all other
destinations, amounted to 0.517.10
commercial bales. Reports from the
officials of all but five of the southern
mills show actual purchases taken from
the cu rren t crop of 580, 1 H bales. The
five mills not heard from purchased
during the same period last year 2,418
bales. The department's township and
precinct agents show that on February
1, 18U7, there remained on plantation
862,208 bales; in warehouses, 508.727;
at public glim, 10, SOW; at compreeaes,
241,344, and at depots and yards 130,
421, making the total amount held on
plantation and in interior towns, not
including cotton held at ports, 1,494,329
