you think tbat he would approve and

It make verv little difference to Amer
icans, what kind of money is used In
Europe. United Slate coins either gold
or silver, do not pass current In Euro
pean oountriea. Tbeyare weighed and
sold, the same aa any older American
nrmtnt. What difference to Americans
v : ... , .. i l..
whether an American floiiar isequano
iht. KncrllMh shlllinas or to four fcng
lish shillings. When Americans want to
hn KntrllMh or other European goods
It I necessary for them to trade some
commodity to the Englishman or fcuro
pean which be prefera to tb gooda which
b already baa. It may be Nebraska
grown corn or steers; or It may os an
mrlHn heiress, depending entirely
upon tb tastes of tb European desiring
to mak tbe trade. Tbe con vers is irus.
KiKiMiinen or Kurooeana cannot get
American producta until they bavs

purchaser. Wbattb American people

It then become a commodity, not won
ey. What tb people want la a dollar
which will buy a much today as it will
tomorrow, and a sufficient number of
dollar to keep price etabl, (fold la a
balloon dollar, constantly rising (a pur
chasing power, wbll property, which It
measure, I falling, to conform to tb
shrinking Yolum of money. Olvttb
masse plenty of money good in tb

and employer seek labor Instead of

worthy of tb great aim of tb father
wbo rescued It from foreign rule.
There baa been much written and said
about the corruption of Tammany, tbe
great democratic organization of Aew
York City. A large part of tb critlc-
ama ar deserved, but as la frequently
tbs cos when put In print tb crime of
tbia organisation bav been 'greatly
magnified and exaggerated. Tb spirt
and foundation of tb organization la
purely aelflsb, It la organized and per.
ated by aelflsb men with selfish rnotivea.
Their aim I to thoroughly organize and
win election In New York City In order
that they may harvest tb fruits of vie
tory, When Tammany Is in power,
every public official who owes hi election
to tb influence of the organ I tat Ion must
;my tribute to tbs Tammany treasury
to help to defray the expenses of tb
magnificent organization and political
equipment which it maintains. No olll
cer i too great and non too small fo
escap the Tammany assessment. Tii
assessment art graded however, those
receiving tb larger salaries pay a greater
per cent than those receiving smaller
salaries. Men and corporations wbo
enjoy special privileges, granted by law
are also required to contribute liberally
to the support of the Tammany organi
zation. Tammany' principle Is "to the
victors belong the spoils" and every
officer put In power by any other organ
ization is removed from power at the
earliest opportunity and a Tammany
man is appointed us his successor. It Is a
bitter foe to civil service reform. The or
ganization Is charitable and every year
contributes largo sums of its "ill gotten
gain" to relieve the suffering poor of New
York City. It does not tax those wbo
are unable to pny, It contributes liber.
ernlly to those in need.
That Is not all. It must bs said to
Tammany's credit that a Tammany oill-
cial never "defaulted" when bundling
public luuds.
In a speech In congress letter nl drov
er nor in defending bis civil service bill
took occasion to severely denounce the
Tammany organization, in vsiy general
term without pointing out specifically
any of the corrupt acts the organltstlon
bnd been gulltj of, This brought t on
grsssmaa Amos Cummlngs ton defence
of the record ol Tammany 1 1 sail. In the
course of bis remarks bs said;

I4 lr,
One of our subscriber at Bloomfleld,
sends us a clipping from tbe American
Farmer, published at Indianapolis, tbat
Is indeed "strange news" to aome of ua
Nebraskans. Uelow we give It:
Tbi la strongs news that comes from
Nebraska, one of tb Htates tbat baa
complained so loudly of bard times dur
ing late years, ThsHtate bas produced
this year 2.0,C00,000 bushel of corn
and Iti annouueed that of this 200,.
000,000 bushels will be stored for sal
next year when prloea ar better, Tb
reason given for this Is that th former
of the state ar not forma lo mill In order
to obtain ready cash this year, Aston
ishing a It may seem, they bav more
money than they can eoitvimwntly ln
voxtt It bas ven reached th point in
that late) woe-be-gon Htate where th
country oanki nav qnn HoiiniwKu'
vokHh. Having more money In their
vault than they can find borrower for.
they cannot afford to pay even a email
per cent, on deposit. Most of tb banks
It la said, bav 05 per cent of their de
posits in their vault. The Htate flank
of Davenport closed it door and
wound up Its business on tb ground
that it could find no borrower for it
surplus cash, Tb great question wltb
tb larmer in tb Htate at present I a
to the investment of their surplus cash,
This Is pleasant nw to bear from Ne
braska, and It I hoped that tbsdrsad
ful day of th last four year may never
return again,
A Josh Hilling truly said, "it la Ut
ter not to know so many thing than to
know so many thing that alnt so,"
Our subscriber desire u to "answer"
tb clipping. It need no answer In Ne
braska, and hardly need answer for our
subscriber anywhere, Condition ar
about th same over the entlr country,
Tb etatement that tb "great question"
with tb farmer anywhere In th United
Htate Is "a to tb Investment" of their
surplus cash, I too ball-headed a II to
try to scalp, Tb reason why farmer
ar refusing to sell tbelr corn I tbat tbs
price 1 below th cost of production,
and most of them bar reached tb con
elusion tbat tber I do use trying to pay
debts, selling their products at or be
low cost, Tber was a good profit In
Nebraska' wheat crop and most of
tbat has been sold,
Tb Htate Dunk of Davenport quit
business because tber wer two banks
In on small town, which was on too
many. Dr. Hall, Hecretary of the Htate
banking board, a banker himself, and a
thorough student of banking from tb
tandpoint of both expsrleuc and
theory aptly explain tb present situ
ation of th bank in this state, by say.
ing there ar two reason for It, Tb
first on I that tb people ar afraid to
borrow and tb second is that th bank
ar afraid to lend. Most of tb people
wbo bav gon into business enterprise
aud borrowed money of tb banks dnr.
ing tb past ten years, bav lost money
or gon brob entirely, Asa result very
few men will take tb risk lo go Into
enterprise now. In other word th
profit from productlv Industry (when
ther were any) bav been away Mow
th current rate of interest. Tb bank
also bav ceased to loon money to a
doss of men who wer trfectly good a
few years ago, and many of whom are
good now, because they do not W sure
that they could get ths money back
promptly in sixty days they rquired
One of the remarkable facts about the
condition of Nebraska banks, as pointed
out by Dr. Hall, is that the item "red is
counts" has almost entirely disapjieared
from their si atiiments. Ten yeursago
the banks would loan out all the money
they bud and then send ths notes they
had to Omuhn, Chicago, or further east,
to be rediscounts). When the crisis
enms, a good ninny of these banks broks
while others wore so badly pinched that
they do not want to repeat the experi
ence. Nebraska and Kansas were twofort un
fits states but year In having a large
crop of wheat, which brought a good
pries on account of a world's shortage.
Their people am energetic and enterpris
ing. Their soil Is fertile, Their outlook
is mors hopeful than than almost auy
other part of tbe world. Hut there is
stern ecouomy in most of their house
holds today, aud In many of them more
than that, iustend of money that they
know not what to do with,

John V. Cornell will result la saying v

under t'i uw rule it would be some
thing over 10,000; or a saving to tb
state and loss to the sheriffs of nearly

Another credit mark has been earned
by Hon. John F, Cornell, tb farmer
Tber bus been a considerable demand
for space in tbs column of tbs Inukj'kn
OKHT, by Individuals desiring to express
their preferences for candidates for
governor at tb nut election. Ho far,
w bav rejected all communication
bearing directly upon tbi subject, for
th reason tbat w believed it was too
early to begin th public discussion of
tb qualification of probable candl
date, Ere speech and open discussion
ovry public question, , bo always
been on of tb principal tenet of tb
populist party, It I better for tb
party, better for tb Btate, batter for
tb candidate, tbat tb public should
know tb good qualities and bad quail-
tie of a man before b I nominated,
than to proceed to a nomination and
tak chance In finding out bl character
and qualification afterwards. Open
discussion will Injur tb chance of no
worthy candidate, It may prevent tho
nomination of an unworthy candidate
if tber b any, Tb public ba a right
to know. Their only way of knowing,
I by public discussion, When thorough'
ly acquainted witb th facte, th people
can be trusted to do right.
, Communications upon thla matter
will b published in a, separate depart
inent. They should not be long and In
very Instance must be signed by tb
author. Any article abusive and purely
slanderoi', written for spiteful purposes,
will riot be published, Tb public I in
terested in facte, not mere story tolling.
What fa th boat policy for tb good of
tbe party? Hhould tber bo co-operation
between tbe three partle aa there wua
last fail? If so, should tb ctudidat
for governor, b a populist, democrat,
or silver republican? Hhould he come
from th city or from tbe country? Wbat
other qualification should b .possess?
Who is ths man that comes nearest
meeting all the requirements? These
sr questions in which th people of Ne
braska ar greatly Interested. Their
open discussion Is invited.
Andrew fbsun'f Memory,
There may bav been greater men In
American politic than Andrew Jackson,
but none more patriotic, none more
courageous. Ther was never a presi
dent wbo wa closer to th people, both
In theories and ill acts. He was a strong
partisan, for political feeling ran blgb In
bis day, and tb Democratic party bas
alway celebrated bis birthday, and held
tbe nam of "Old Hickory" as one of its
patron salute,
The obserrunce of Jackson day I par
ticularly appropriate at this time. The
stund taken by the party which claims
him iu its lust national convention was
so nearly In accord witb Jackson's act
that it can gather inspiration and eu
coumgument from recalling his memory
and dwelling upon that period of na
tional history in which he was a prom
inent actor. 'J he great fight of Jack
son's life was against the money power,
as then concentrated in the United
Htates bank, Jackson saw the power ol
ths bank and Its uungers aud resolved
to destroy it. He arrayed against him
all the money power ol the country,
small then to what it is now, both in
tbs millions it poMeesMed andintherami
flcatious of Its Intiueucs. The question
tnrned on the rechartering of the bank,
When Mr. Middle, president ol the bank.
called on Jackson aud asked for a pledge
to sign ths charter bill, Jackson declined.
"Then ws will defeat you for re-elect ion"
said Diddle, "If you huvs th power to
control a presidential election, replied
Jackson, "It is tim the United Htates
bank went out of existence."
Jackson won the tight and the money
(Mrwer went down In dsleat. Hut his
predictions that It would again attempt
to enslavs ths opl hav com trus,
and th nation Is again In th midst ol
a struggle vu mora gigantic and not
Im Intense than that of In;iil-3il. Not
Ihiino rat alone, but th entire people
ran profit by Imitating th splendid
heroism and patriotism aud determin

W are not at all sorry that tbs or

pulled words Is being simplified. Wagon

plough ana lots of word ended In ct
that now end with o, Evolution evo
lute very slowly even where there is a
necessity to burry.
There are several things to be taken
into account iu connection with the cut
of wages iu the cotton mill of New Eng
land. A a rule, their operative are not
Yankees, Doer guzzling foreigner bav
been imported and tbe Yankee have
been pushed out. Tb colored people of
tbeHontbar much mor nimble and
turn off more work aud are glad to work

for it costs only about half aa much to

New Argentina wheat baa begun to ap

They ar still talking about currency

Tb wbol psopl ar saving too much

so In their power that they can control

thing. The only safety for ths people, I
in letting tb government coin all th
gold and silver and issuo all the paper
money and in making no money re
deemable in any other money. Govern

bav got to come to, and the quicker

Tb cream separator is about to
revolutionize butter making. The cream
can be separated from tbe milk, stored
in cons and need not oe sent to tbe lac
tory oftener than once lu two or three
days, It ha to stand awhile anyway
before churning. The milk can be fed to
calves or hogs, and the butter-milk cun

One butter factory in Lincoln could
ktatherlu cream for fifty miles around
on the several railroads; good butter
can be made aud a good price received.
We begin to think there is a better
way than requiring treasurers to give
bonds. Douds are seldom ever paid, no
matter how much money is stolen and
voters vote for men they otherwise
would not, thinking that bonds will
make them honest. Duild a burglur
proof vault and require nil the money
to be kept there until it is paid out on
debts, l'heu let the opposite party from
the one in power, appoint men to ex

it would bs better to loan the inonev

great amount should be tied up. Stop

is no need of but two funds, the school

spend much ol it in learning to talk and
write as the people did in the dark agea.
There Is ten times more satisfaction and
utility in knowing a robbln from a blue
bird, or a roes from a piuk than in know
ing Greek or Latin. W are proud tbat
o many of our girls are planning for
elf support. Tbe day ba gone by for
girl to curl up and wait for some man
to come and marry them, and tbe first
on wbo comes, accepted. The atand
ard of girlhood will aurely raise the
staudard of boyhood. Tbe young man
wltb a whisky breach, will stand a lim
chance among college girl, be
cause foraootb, they are capabl of self
upport and if it ia the last chance, it
don't worry them. New avenue of em
ployment ar being opened toberandsb
is qualifying herself to walk In them.
When eh return from college, it 1 now
just as much expected eh will do some
ting a tbat her brother will. It is all
right to learn telegraphy, book-keeping
and short band, but it is more Import
ant that a greater number learn farm
ing. W will be glad when twenty-five
cow ar kept ou the atat farm and our
boys and girls are taught to mak
butter and cheese tbat are fit to eat.
Poultry 1 one of tb roost profitable de
partment of farming, yet but few know
bow to handle bens. Not loss than a
hundred ben should be kept on the
state farm and the profits recorded. A
chicken I prim for market at th end
of four months. Not so with pork or
beef, lie keeping should be taught and
twenty stands of bees should be kept,
Dues provide themselves with postur
and witb winter food so all the Increase
of numbers und of stores, I clear profit.
It ba always seemed to us tbat a herd
of hogs could be steered clour of cholera.
Wo never beard of the disease buck in
York state, where we fed boiled potatoes,,
beets, turnips, squash and pumpkin
witb a little provender mixed. W can
grow boots, turnips and aquashoa to mix
witb corn. Then we would like to see
a thousand loads of stable manure put
onto the state farm that is now thrown
away, in the city of Lincoln.
