There i a great deal of sympathy be

the New York penitentiary since the law
of enforced Idlenea went Into effect No
doubt thi sympathy i deserved, but we
Want to call attention to the "enforced

find In the penitentiary a safe place
from the vengeance that would Ntirely over

them from work, expressed pleusure at
the prospect of unlimited rest.
Have any such utterance a these
eminated from that great somber, gaunt
army of the unemployed, whose soldier
are found by thousand in every city
and by score In every town? Far from
It. Willing nud able and eager to work,
they tnuat sit down and see wife and
children hunger.
"Ob, but there I always work to be

The faintest his can be hard above
all applause, the actor tell us. But no
his that ever greeted the actors' ears
could be freighted with such meaning n
is found in the hiss of a mob. An audi
ence nt the theater hissing It displeasure
at the performance on the stage is not a
plea mii nt sight, but how infinitely more
disagreeable i hissing from a crowd in
the often street. It is In one case but a
matter of pleasure, the silly favoritism
of uu hour; in the other it is an ominous
eouud, a sound to make intelligent men
think, the student turn back toother
such sounds in history, the busy man
patisH and ask, "What Is the matter?"
None of us cried when the crowds that
bad gathered to see tho Logan monu

Personally, we believed that Tanner de
served all that be got, but we also Im
lieve that not the man atom wa biased,

resent was hissed. And what I that?
Monopolistic greed, tha devouring of the

The state conveotion will be held in
Lincoln, Wedneadty, iSeptemlxtr 1. It
will be the greatest political gathering
in the history of the atate. There will
be 1170 delegate to the popolit con
vention, 813 delegate to the democratic
convention, and 570 delegate to the
silver republican convention and their
riend and hundred of other who take
advantage of the one fare railroad rate
to come to Lincoln to do their trading.
Populist will come from all thesur
rounding country in wagon, on horse
back or on foot. It la seldom that an

coln on this occasion. Mr. Ilryun, Sen

Congressman Him peon, flenerul J. U.
Weaver and possibly J;ick Island of Mis
souri, together with our own Senator
Allen and Governor Holcomb, The
speaking will begin Tuesday evening,
August 31 and will be continued the
next day and evening. Tho hungry will
lie fed. There w ill lie a burbucue of sev

County convention in selecting dele
gate ahonld choose those who will at
tend. Men who bave not sufficient inter
est in the party to attend it conven
tion should not be chosen for delegates.
The chosen delegate I better than a
proxy, Tho one who will attend Is
better tha u the one who will only send a
letter of regret.
The delegate to the populist conven
tion should not le delegates to either of
the other conventions. Populists are
neither democrat nor silver republican.
Their party organization must be main
tained eeparute and distinct from other
parties. The principle and platform
of the populist party are broader than
those of any other patty, Wheu the
free coinage of silver ha been secured
the democrat and silver repuhfican
will have no excuse for existence. The
principles of the populist party are

The republican of Nebraska have
chosen the eagle a the emblem of tbeir
party, which Is very befitting, for that
bird like the republican feed opon the
earning and flesh of other, a a rule, it
take life to live. It flies high and fiesta
high but it best U strewn about with
the skeletons of happy home. He I a
thief and becau of hi power no court
dare molest him or send him to prison.
We propose the honey bee n the emblem
of the JSryan party. Smaller, it i true,,
but the'engle fear blm more than any
other Hying creature. It feed by In
dustry aud not by destruction. It
blesee every flower upon which it llghta
by bringing fructifying pollen,
It turn out that millionaire corpor
ation and trust have been buying up
church colleges, us men buy hog on tha
market, pitying a price according to the
weight. And tbi bus been going ona
long time but onlv once iu a while a case
crop out. Prof, iiemls wa dismissed
from Chicago University because he
stood up for justice und not for the
Standard Oil Co, Pres. Andrew ha
bud to leave l'rown University because
be thought raising the money standard
wa an injuatice lo the debtor das. It
is also the fact t hat tobacco uvm ara
buying up southern colleges and wine
lin n colleges on the Pacific coast.
Why is It that the east is almost solid
for the gold standard, just us the south
was almost solid for slavery before the
wo? Iu the north a sma'l minority
sympathized with the south, so now a
lew iu the west sympathize with the
east but iu both case it was, mid is,
the loaves and office that draw them.
There wore cases where ISudumau could
not find a prosluvcry democrat to till
the postofflct. There are eases in the
west today where u gold standard re
publican cun not be found.
The Journal thinks that It is all iu the
eye that clothing can be bough t cheaper
In Europe than here. Then why do the
clothing men want a tariff if it dona not
help them to get a higher price for their
goods? In a week more the Journal will
tell it that the price ol mniiufactured
good and raise the price of farm pro
duce. It now claims (hat the tariff is
the advance guard of nroserity, ll so
it must be au awful lung way ahead ol
the procession.

"Wheat 1 going ui. and silver is going
down," soy the go.'d bugs, "nnd that
prove that liryun was wrong, when be
stated that- they Jiad kept very near to
gether," They are both still below the
lowest pi ice between IH.'IO and 1870.
At one time it took three and a halt
Mexican silver dollars to buy a bushel
and it took an equal number of gold
dollar to make the same purchase.
Wheu wheat bring time or even two
gold dollar we will give up that gold
ha stood still and silver gone down.
With three year of falling off of visible
supply and now n famine in most pert,
wheat should advance in price double
what it has, and never ought to have down to where it is.

This Congress has made no law by
whieli rich men can be made to pay
more taxes for the support of tint gen
eral government than poor men. The
income tux law which Jiryun helped to
make, would have done that very thing
but all the court owned aud controlled
by rich men decided against it. We have
had t wo Infamous court decissions since
iiideN-ndene was declared, and they are
the lired Scott decision and the income
tax decision.

We see there is another war on bet
ween lbs women ol the Home for the
Friendless society nnd the state house
ring. We hops (or the sake of justice
toward tba tax payer that tlm women
will beat iu the court as they did the
republican once More. When the state
authorities run one, of tho many state
institutions bettor and more economical
than the women havsrun tho Home, then
It will be time to talk about a change.
It is queer that men, republjcuns, demo-
rata aud populists should hanker ao to
