Take the air we breathe. It lot no value

"It follow therefor, that auy law

been a nominal reduction of the tariff
but dutie rniint now b paid in gold

It doc not require very much Intclll

change from the allver atandard to th
gold atandard double all kind of taxe

money ayatema in thnae Inland will
work a greater oppreaion than the

There ba been aeveral abarp critl
cim made by correspondent of the In
terview given out by Ooveroor Hoi
comb and Senator Allen after tba elec
tion of 1800. While the editor of tb
Ihobpkndknt la a radical of the radical
and never bad any fear that a popullet
legielature would be too radical, It I but
juet to bring to mind the circumatancea
under which tboae interview were given
to the publio. Tb following la a review
oftheca a it then appeared, taken
from page (4 and 05 of Nebraeka Re
"Immediately upon the result of the
election being knowa aroie au outcry
from the corporation and monopoly
claeae eat and wet that confiscation
and ruin to their I a tercet and to prop
erty InveNtmcnt In general would mark
tbecourmof the new Jeglelatlve body

oampaigna the republican pre and
party manager bad own the atate

that no loan would ba renewed, but im

uieuuue payment, uemauuea ol every
debtor la the atate, followed by forecloa
ore and ruin. During theee aameaix
oampaigna republican of Nebraska bad
aiNured the peofile of theeaet that pop.
ulUt auoce la the atata meant repudia
tion of debt, violation of contract and
anarchy. Especially bad the mind ol
Investor of the east been filled with
direst prophecies of what would befall
Nebraska nuder populist control con
flscation, anarchy, repudiation and rula
like a chime of gruesome bells, the
change were rung on theee word to de-
cure republican campaign fund from
frightened Investor and maintain the
bold of the republican party oa the Ne
braska etate treasury.
"When those wbo bad used these col-
bmulcaforsix year a their stock In
trade, round their own party swept out
of the state house, and in Ita stead,
nearly a full roster of populist state
officers, with the legislature populist and
free silver by two-third majority, tbey
were face to face with a great crisi of
their own manufacture. They bad told
the people of tbe east that populist vic
tory iu this state meant ruin to their In
vestment here unless immediately with
drawn. If the eastern I investors took
them ut their word, forced collection
and withdrew loans, tbe result would be
ruin Indeed to many of their own asso
elates and business friends. In this
emergency, leading republican In Ne.
braska fell on their knee before promi
nent populists, praying for certificate
that their own former utterance were
only campaign lies. Their two leading
newspapers, tbe Lincoln Journal and
tbo Omaha Beo, begged from Governor
Holcomb and Senator Allen Interviews
to assure the world that the iucomimr
legislature was composed of remarkably
level-headed and conservative men, thut
"nothing radical would be done," and
that the "obligation of contract would
be held eucred." To these Interview
these republican editor added their own
worn belief that life and property would
tlllbesafoin NViruska notwithstand
ing the politics of the incoming leglala
tureand their own campaign lies."
