The State Journal says that there is
no law on the statute book giving one
man an advantage over another. How
comes It then that a certain mao by the
name of Thompson can soil gas in the
city of Lincoln and charge 13.00 a 1,
000 feet for It and no one else can sell it
at al? Or bow does it come that a few
men have the exclusive privilege of Issu
ing their promises to pay and forcing all
the rest of the people to pay tbem In tor
est on what they owe? The gentlemen
of the two national banks bave the ad
vantage over all the other who dobuai.
noss. If a merchant issues his promise
to pay, tbe said morcbant has to pay
interest and not receive interest. To a
pop, that looks like a pretty big ad van
tage, and there is a law on the statute
book that gives thee gentlemen that
Industrial despotism is tbe most ter
rible of alt despotism. ' A corporation
master bas more power and can use it
more swiftly than any monarch or
tyrant of old. Ilegbvestbe word. Tbe
engines In a great ant instantly stop.
Thousands of men, women and little
ohlldrea are deprived of their means of
life and are left to starve. What tyrant
of old ever bad such power as that?
Weyler's reooncendos were not more at
the mercy of tbe man whom we all exe
crate, than tbe wage worker of a great
modem factory. There has probably
been more persons turned out to starve
since the great trusts have been formed
than Wyeler ever sent to reoonoendo
camps. Hundreds, of manufactures
have been closed and tbe workmen
turned adrift. The act Is just as in
humanly cruel and will produce just as
much suffering. The power of tbe trust
magnate is greater than that of Weyler
in Cuba.

Tbe republican have two governor
who seem to be working in the interest
of the common people on many lines,
Kooseveltof New York and I'ingree of
Michigan. They both bave had a hard
fight with tbe money and whisky poer.
We bad five boy friends; yes there
were six of us a! way together. Wt
bunted, fished aud swam In tbe milfpond
together. We celebrated tbe Fourth of
July together and attended school In the
same old bituk scboolbouse, reciting In
the same classes. After graduating we
separated in two and attended different
academies and colleges. After final
graduation' we separated and located
hundreds of miles apart. Our callings
were all different, One became manu
facturer with several band rod operatives
ondr him; tbs second became a lawyer.
Judge and member of congress, the third
a college professor and author, tbe
fourth a farmer wit b a thousand broad
acres, tine borses and cattle; the fifth
was an editor and publisher, ntver be
came congressman or governor bat
made congressmen and governor of
other with hi pen.'
Twenty years bad rolled away wbn
we started out to visit 011 r five friends.
First we fobnd tbe manufacturer. lis
bad a happy borne with several children.
We soon noticed one of tbs boy mo
tioned Instead of talking, be was deaf
and dumb. He lost bis hearing at three
and soon became dumb. Tbe next on
lound wo the lawyer. III borne was a
palace on a fashionable avenue but Loi
wo not tbere. Hh alept In ber grave
and another wife filled ber place. Our
visit was but ball a visit. We next called
at the borne of tbe college professor, be
was well fixed in worldly goods, but oh,
bow changed was Julia. Tb bright
mind and cheerful smile were gone. She
was hopelessly insane, A stroog woman
was constantly by her side to restrain
ana care lor ber, Tb farmer was next
on our list. He met ns at the depot
wun a epan 01 nign steppers and whirled
ns to bis borne on tbe double quick. On
going nut to dinner we passed the door
of bis oldest boy's room and sad was
tbe siKbt, a dreuling Idiot. The editor
was the filth and lout to find. It seemed
everybody in the state knew bira. Tbe
day paseeu pleasantly talking politics
ana Doynooa experiences. Late ia ths
evening one of bis boys came borne stng
gering drunk, lie was a complete chip
01 tne grandfather block on the mother'
side. We thought give u Idiocy or in
sanity rather than druukenese aud give
ns aeain rainer man either.

May 13 In yonr leading editorial you do
the governor of Nebraska a great injus
tice. The article contain but half tb
trntb, and as it is frequently tbe cose
in that form it ia the baaeet kind of a
lie. Tbe facte are tbeae: In tbe state
of Nebraska at the present time tb
legislature i republican and the gov
ernor ia a populist Governor Toynter
bad on several oooosioua in publio ad
dresses condemned tbe imperialistic
policy of tbe republican party and tbe
national administration for making
war against tbe Thilippin people. He
bad taken tb position that the war
was an unjust ons and contrary to tbe
time-honored tradition and principle
of tbe . government of the United
State. Politician in the legislaturs
thought they saw an opportunity to
compel tbe governor to endorse tbe
war by draitlng double-headed reso
lutions praising ths First Nebraska regi
ment and also endorsing in strong
term tbe policy of the national ad
ministration la brluglnir on and con
ducting the war. They reasoned that
tb governor would not dare to veto
such a resolution no matter bow many
other declaration It contalund. The
governor could do but one of two thing
either sign It or veto it. He could not
divide it and sign the part endorsing tb
f irst and veto tb pert endorsing tne
administration, and defending the prin
ciples of tbe war. il vetoed it and In hi
veto message set forth bis reasons and
took occasion to praise the First Ne
braska for its magnificent work and de
claring bis highest admiration and ap
preciation of the regiment in 110 unmis
takable langiinge. lie was willing to
sign a resolution praising tbe regiment,
but be refused to becaujrbt la a politi
cal trap, sell by bis political opponents,
Governor Poynter bas taken a great In
tereet in the regiment in every way. He
bas cabled for a list of the killed and
wounded and bas prepaid the reply, H
has been most persistent in hi efforts to
have the regiment ent boms and mus
tered out at tbe-earliest nosslbl date.
It ia .nonsense to suppose tnat Governor
Poynter Is not a friend and admirer of
tb First Nebraska. 11 Is on of those
who believe that it bas paid far dearly
for what tb government bas gained In
Tbe people of the state gad ths mem
bers of the regiment conversant wltb
these fact do not critlois the governor.
They' understand fully the political
game the legislature attempted to play.
As to your statement that Mr. liryan
Influenced tbe governor in bis course, I
merely call your attention ta th fact
that your statement bos nothing behind
It more tangible than imagination. It
Is well known that Mr. liryan express
hi opinions openly and freely, lie doe
not operate behind closed doors as a
rule and it Is not likely that he made an
exception In tbl cose'
Tbs Manila "Freedom." which also
assumed tbe criticism of th governor a
correct In th following manner: It says:
"We are In receipt of a communication
from L. H, Ilnrnbam. (Ileatrice) of th
old reliable First Nebraska. In which be
takes exception to an editorial not
which appeared In tb 'Freedom" May
10, If says: "W notice you take the
liberty npon yourself of expressing to
the publio the opinion of tbe First Ne
braska in reo-ard to oor worthy gov
ernor. You also state that his veto of
th resolution i an insult to the regi
ment. Let ns say to you, Mr. fcditor,
that you ar sadly mistaken In yonr
opinion of tb First Nebraska. Not only
th majority of our regiment her, bnt
of other regiment heartily endorse the
action of our goveroor. How does It
com that you do not comment on the
action of the legislature in regard to
voting down tbe bill to appropriate U.
000 for tbe regiment, and a a substi
tute voted ns thsir thanks. Ths legisla
ture of Nebraska, tb editor of "Free
dom," or tbe president of tb United
State cannot mar tbe soldiers bsr be
lieve that they are fighting ia defense of
tbe principles of the country or for the
glory of tbe flag."
