MISS GOFF'S PLAN,

I have read witb moe h Interest, tbe
plan suggested by Kllen M. Goff, In the
issue of February 2. I supposed your
Invitation to discuss the plan, or if pos
Ible Imnrpvs it by amendment, or eome
new and better method, would be more
liberally compiled with, but perhaps tbe
brethren bare atoned to ask who 1 this
this Ellen Goff? This should make do
material difference, as the beet idea's we
have in government, originated in tbe
thinking of fertile mind's of women, it is
a notable foot they have always been
foremost in every rood word and work
Tbe Goff plan is tbe beet, so far pro
posed, it carries a two ioia purpose,
first It will friv to tbe people their prl
- mary lesson in "direct legislation" and
let them in a practical way decide for
themselves the merit or demerit ot "In

principles, that in 1800 they can sup

Tbe question of who Miss Goff is, as
Mr. McGuire remarks is not material.
It is not her personality tbat is under
diicusion, but a plan of getting together
to flgbt plutocracy tbat she first sug
gested. However tbe Independent bas
no objection to telling its readers who

ers in Buffalo and adjoining counties

people to make an effort to save their
homes. She was but a young girl then,
but she made many speeches, organised
the women, got them to take an active
part in tbe Alliance, got up little social
affairs to raise money and help the fight
along. Then she came to Lincoln, at
tended the University, graduated at tbe
bead of the law class and receiv d an un
solicited letter from the bead of tbat de
department declaring ber to be tbe most
efficient student in it. Her plan ot get
ting together has been received with fa
vor in the populist press not only In this
state, but also in Wyoming, Kansas,
Washington and other states. A good
many letters have been received at this
office concerning Miss Goff e plan, some
of which were printed last week. The
Independent is an open forum for any
one else who has any thing to say on

aed under tbe law of 1890, being
198,849,280, and the 'notes of national
Danks, amounting to 9885,430,985.
These sums added together amount to
$1,317,855,628, every dollar of which is
payable in silver or gold at the pleasure
of the government By this bill every
dollar is payable only in goldsilver no
longer being a legal tender in .the pay
muni oi aeois. 4 ,
8. Tbe first section of this bill repeats
the declaration tbat tbe gold dollar is
tbe only money standard of value.
4 This Uage-McKlnley bill, in the
second section, provides that all public
debts and alt outstanding obligations,
as well as those incurred hereafter, shall
be payable in void coin only, and tbe
seotion provides that all private debts
shall be paid in gold coin, the avowed
purpose boing to entirely demonetize
silver and drive it into companionship
wun me oaser meiais. .
5. All the outetand nor standard silver
dollars amounting to about 500,0O0,.
000, must be redeemed In gold. The
silver certificates mult be paid In gold
when they have found their, way into
the federal treasury, .
Tbe only legal tender permitted by
this bill is gold coin.
6. To obtain the money with which
to maintain the so Id standard and re
deem tbe greenbacks, treasury, notes,
silver certificates, silver, coin and . bask
notes, la ease of a failure ot a bank to
redeem it circulation, the secretary 'of
tbe treasury shall sell the gold bonds of

Tbat means that those who have cor-
nered gold will receive interest on 1,
800,000,000 which they do not now re
ceive. It means not only an awful :' in
crease In taxation to pay interest 'on
thau vast amount which will be the first
result ot the passage of this bill, but up
on more thin double of tbat, for tbe
bankers wS issue their "promises to
pay" in untold amounts and receive in
terest on them also, Ths people of this
country would better wake up.

It Is perhaps only right to open this
article on tbe investigation of the audi'
tor's office with tbe remark tbat prob
ably ninety-nine out of every hundred
populists in the state of . Nebraska will
vote for William- Jennings . Bryan for
president at the next election regardless
of what ticket or tickets be runs upon.
,Nex in order is t-he statement that if
the populist par ty is t be held respoiH
sibte for the adminlstraUoo of tbe stats
it should appoint men who are In fay
sympatiy .with the principles . of the
party as pressed in lt national and
stoats platTJrma, and who have shown
their sympitiy by aotlve work and
sacrifices to mental n those principles.
If tbe leadin J , democratic paper of tbe
state Is to oontlaue , its assaults upon
the populists aa iti did 00 Iloloomb's

and tbe reasons for them. ,'
In tbe first place, of all tbe blook suck
ing corporations with which this nation
bas been cursed, tbe . great insurance
oompanies are the worst The gold
standard and falllpg prices have given
them an opportunity to fleeoe the people
out of mSlllabs and they bav inado tbe
most of their opportunities. Men driven
to despair by tbe shrinkage of values,
tbe loss of business and of property
have sought refuge from pauperization
in their old age and deetitutlon for the
ones that they loved by investing in in
surance. Millions upon minions nave
been piled up in the vaults of these com
paniee, much of it by the lapse of poli
cies, where men, because of the bard
times, were nnable to keep up their pay
meats and alt that they had paid
taken by the companies
for which tbey returned nothing. The
millions that some of tbeee companies
have accumulated is so great in amount
that no mind can comprehend it, and it
bas for the most part, been wrung from
tbe poor and families in distress. Many
a poor wife has scrimped and saved and
halt starved herself and children so that
she could be able to make the regular
tribute to tbeee great corporations, but
at last tbe day came when the greatest
sacrifice no mora could be paid and all
of ber savings have gone for nothing.!
; Ro great bas this drain upon ths peo
ple become tbat every state of ths union
has taken action to remedy the evll.jln
surance companies havs been made to
pay for Menses for tbe privilege of gatb
erlug tbe wagts of tbe poor and the men
In distress, jvho loving their families,
sought ln'hat way "to providefor them,'
The profits were so great tbat many
scoundrels organised companies with
do capital, for tbs sipress purpose of

Uielr duty, according to their Ideas of
political warfare, to do so. Hut why
should a democratic paper tbat sup
ported Dry an fly to tbe defense of these
corporations that fought Bryan with all
the power of their great wealth, appeal
to the sympathies of the public in their
behalf and falsely claim tbat a populis
omolal had been "holding them up?"
l ine misdoings for which the World
Herald calls upon a populist office bolder
to resign wore not crimes committed by
him, but by democrats whom be was
forced to appoint because of our alliance
with the democratic party In the state,
and after a combination bad been
formed tbat seemed to imperil tbs inter
ests of reform in tbe state. The World-
Herald knowing tbeee facts, instsad of
denouncing tbe democrats who bad
caused tbe trouble jumped onto tbe man
Who was gnllty of receiving letters writ
ten to him by them and nothing else
and demands bis resignation. Does any
one believe that if tbe auditor bad been

peared in that paper last Friday? Not

rVttee bas failed to find any evidence of
Uat kind. Tba charges made for examl
nations during Mr, Cornell's term of
office have been from one-fourth to one
half what tbe Insurance companies bavs
bad to pay heretofore and.are now pay
mg to tbe examiners ot other states.
Just tba other day an examiner from
the state of Illinois appeared in Omaha,
examined a company located there,
charged f 700,00 and was paid his fee
and not a word said about it. Wby did
not tbs World-Herald get after that ex
aminer for "holding up" a Nebraska
company? Wby is it that its sympa
thies are only for these great bloodsuck
ing concerns in tbe east, who can pay
their officers a hundred thousand dol
lars a year and .then have hundreds of
thousands to contribute to a fund to
wbatbas been proved against Cor.
nell? It la proved beyond contradiction
tbat be appointed two democrats as In
surance exarainors. Tbey started out
on a trip. Tbey wrote him three letters.
In ons of them, the charge for examina
tions was called "holding up." In an
other letter they said that if they suc
ceeded In collecting a certain amount
tbey would make the auditor a preseat.
In the next letter tbey said tbey did not
succeed la collecting the bill and t here

were private letters and wore glvea to 'a

Tbsunjustness of th charge of tbs
World-Herald excite comment even
among the auditor's political anemias.
Th State Journal of February 27th
has this criticism of the World-Herald's
foolish attack. It says:
"Th World-Herald calls upon Audi
tor Cornell to return. Although ths edi
tor believes tbat tbe auditor has violated
no law, tbe paper calls unon!hIm to re
sign or submit to the indignity of being
Impeached. Dut if Mr. Cornell has frac
tured no statute, bow can impeachment
proceedings be sustained? As usual, the
World -Herald is substituting- hysteria
lor legal knowledge and horse sense."
Tbe republican committee Is not dis
posed to be just. Its time is not spent
in trying to arrivs at tbe truth, but in
trying to make political capital and in
the effort of soms lacking country law
yers to show off their smartness. In
stead of trying to find out whether tbe
insurance companies' bave been "held
up," tbey sit ber and ask such ques
tions of the examiners as. "Did von
have a hot time??. "Did too drink good
whiskey?" etc., etc, Meantime they are
u ppresslng the real evidence in th eaa.
Tbat tbey were at that kind of dirty
work was found out in th following
Th cbargs was that tbe auditor and
his examiners war "holding up" tbs in
surance companies. The commits ap
pointed by Governor Poyoter started
A. A . S .a .a
to nng out wnciner that nbarg was
true or not. Tbey went at it in a way
tbat would find out. They did not out
a witness on th stand and question him
ur on uuur wneiner :n naa a "hot
time," or ask him what kind of wbisksy
bs drank. Tbey requested th secretary
01 state, Mr. l'orter. to write to all in
suranco companies doing buslnsss in Ne
braska and ask them if tbey bad been
"held up." In answering these letters
many of tbe companies sent a copy of a
letter that they bod written to Mr,
Fisher, saying that be had written to
them and their reply to blm covered th
case. This showed tbat th republican
committee bad th only reliable evidence
in th case and after obtaining un
doubted proof tbat no company"bad
been "held up," tbat tbat committee
bad refused to submit th evidenoeto
