Now Ex-Auditor Moore plead that
. the people an the criiniuale for trusting
him with their money. That money was
tbruet into hi pocket illegally and it
' waa to crime on his Dart to keen it. If
they bad not elected him to office and
given bint a chance to gut hold of pnblio
money, be never would have stolen a
cent. Hi kick ia mainly because be la to
be tried in Omaha where at leant one
public thief has received a good, long
sentence in the pen. Hartley will proba
bly make the same plea, that the people
bad no buiuass to e.ct him if they did
not want their money stolen.
The republicans had aaud enough to
tarn out two or throe any In m superiu
tendenta for drunkenness, We w inder
I the pop have got at much ennd. It
la about time to show it. If tbostate
must have drinking appointee better
put them in charge, of well men at the
pen and not in charge of the insane.
Doctors and railroad eugineera better
ot even amell of liquor.
Senatore are atill discussing the tariff.
The aiigar trust must be pleased above
- everybody else. With the tariff on augar
aa Dinglcy left it, tney could pay every
senator fifty thousand dollara for his
vote and yet make million the next
lour yeara. If they put; the tariff adva
lorem on to augar it would knock the
truat higher than Uilderroy's kite. Hut
they wont do it, for then the truat refln
era could not afford the boodle to the
aonatora and congreaamen. The leather
and boot and ahoe dealers want a high
tariff on their good but they want free
trade in hidea. That ia republican pol
icy. The woat must sell everything to
the east at free trade pricea and then be
made, by law, to pay high tariff pricea
tor everything they buy of the east.
Bradstreet reported last week that
"results of the spring trade, in staples,
are disappointing, Several cotton mills
will abut down down to allow consump
tion to overtake production." The same
day, in Cincinnati, U. 8. Treasurer Gage
told the club people that the "future of
is Illumined with rational hone. The re
vival of industry ia near." Yes prosper,
ity will come in about four years wheu
Bryan is president and the volume of
money is doubled and not until then.

all property will go lower and that is
undoubtedly the reason wny tne imitss
cannot get any one to invert their money
in property. In a year they can buy
more property with the ame money.
And that will be called republican pros
perity of course. ,
There ia one sign of distant corning
nnianeritv and that ia the failure ol east
ern banke to loan ont the!r money. Two
banka in New York with nepowts ot
over fifty millions, have consolidated,
because Ibey could make no money in
running two banks. Aftereonaolidatimi
the expense of running will be about
half. Eight or ten other are trying to
consolidate iu New York. The same
thing is going on all over our couutry.
This means that people have stooped
borrowing money. Let the ieople get
ont out of debt and stay out and then
it will make no difference how often they
raise the money standard. It ia bor
rowing amall dollars and paying bjg
ones that that hurts. The two strong
banka in Kansas City ha veconsolidated.
Not one person in a hundred is benefitted
by borrowing. Hall of us felt when we
were borrowing money s we do when
we are paying it, there would not be
much money borrowed. Those who bor
row money and never pay are about the
only ones that gain. Every law that
discourages or renders more difficult the
borrowing or lending of money is a
blessing in disguise. Our state leglsla
ture clout dare to tax mortgagee on
record for fear it will driveout the money
Innder. It would be a Weening to the
state to drive them out. A small farm
without a debtia much better than a
large one encumbered with a mortgage.
Better be Pwenty-flve yeara In getting a
fiirm without debt that to get one the
first year and uever own it clear.
It must be thnt prosperity aiiu con
fidence have struck the taxpayers of Ne
braska for atate warrants have gone up
to par. A year ago they were selling at
ninety-three cents, and the market was
flooded with them. Now they are being
paid off so that tbey are hard to find.
Prosperity has mrely atruck the tax
payers lint how is it with the republi.
can thieves? Are they getting aa much
money out of th atate treasury aa tbey
were a year ago? Mas not prosperity
struck them the other way? And how
about the credit of the state. We were
told the pops would ruin it. Hut they
havn't. Choking off the thieves may
ruin it, but we will boast of that kind of

MERCHANT '3 BANK CLOSED.
Cash Ran Low and Officer Decided to
Tbe Merchants Bank," incorporated
under tbe l&vs of the state of Nebraska,
atfd located atlHtb and 0 atreeta in this
city closed its doora last Tuesdav. . Tbe
atate banking board took charge.
Tbe bank's booka show that it is not
in bad shape, except as to the amount of
caeh on hard. Tbe bills receivable which
include the loans and discounts, foot up
$85,578, and thereis real estate worth
f 7,500, and furniture and fixtures val
ued nt $2,800. Besides tbexe there are
$1,400 in cosh on baud, footing np $97
278. The only obligations are $:J8.0K)
due to depoaitors." Of this amount 98,.
800 is state money and $5,600 belongs
to the county of Lancaster. Both of
these deposits lire secured by the ciiHto
mary bonds required of siateand county
The remaining $23,000 of deposits U
divided among about J 20 depositor.
Few of these accounts are mercantile,
that is, held by men in business in the
city, and what there is of these are small
in both number and amount. J tie mar
gin of nearly $00,000 is believed to be
more than ample to satisfy all deposit
or' claims in full.
The bank was organized in August,
18'Jl, and began business with acloxu,
fresh capital, all paid up of about $50,
000, It first, opened iu the Brace block,
Fifteenth nnd O. streets, but when the
Nebraska Havings bank went under it
moved up into its present location. The
present officers of the bank are Win. Fill
lerton, president; J. K. iMvey, vice preei
dent; C. M. Crawford, cashier, W. B, Ity
on, assistant cashier.
We wish to call especial attention to
the picture of Hev. B. E, Newton on ptme
5 of this issue, Ilev. Newton is one of
the uroininent members of the Nebraska
conference and pastor of the Meth odit
church at Louisville. This is only one
instance of the great work being done
by Dr. Khepard, and the sukpknbknt
desires that every one of its patrons
should read it. Thousands of homes
have been pleased by the fact that some
loved one has been restored to health
and usefulness by theKhepard treatment.
And its a popular treatment to, Popu
lar because of its cost, which is $5 Mi
llionth, including all medicines, and pop
ular because it is effective. No system
of medical practice is more perfect and
productive of better results. TbelwoB-,
pisndknt realizes that it owes a reality
to its readers nnd the public generally in
this matter. They have seen the great
success of the Hhepard treatment dem
onstrated times without number. They
have seen tieople cured by him whose
cm Hcs were considerd hopeless, and they
have witnessed it almost every week ,r
six years. We therefore say that we
consider ft our duty to insist that our
readers investigate this method. Write

Ha Ta k of H. mp and Chicory Indus,
trfea to the Board of Trade,
Senator Allen ut the invitation of
the board of trade of the city of Fre
mont addressed the cltizous of that city
upon hemp and chicory industries, and
said that if the policy of protection was
to be pursued he should use his endeav
ors to secure as much of it aa possible
for Nebraska , industries,. He spoke' of
bis course in the senate and that he bod
endeavored to look after the interests of
the state In every particular.
"When-I was elected four years ego,"
said Hie senator, "many people thought
their business would go to the dogs, " It
was m'y purpose to convince every muni
cipality in the stats that so far a my
enpneitv would allow me, thefr interests
would be as safe with iiih as anyone.
What I did to secure an appropriation
for the exposition was not for the bene,
fit of Omaha alone, but for the state at
large; the Indian supply warehouse as
well. As it. was, Nebraskans had no op.
port unify to furnish supplie for the In
dians, but in Omaha anyone in the state
will have an opportunity of bidding,"
Referring to the tariff he aaid:
"I do not think a tariff would restore
prosperity, but if we are to hive a tariff
1 am in favor of loading it from core to
cuticle, give every industry between the
oceans and Canada to the Oulf the bene
fit of it, Nebraska in particular. Then
if the tariff doesn't succeed they cannot
say the populists interfered with their
law. If we kept them from passing the
