Tb redublican bavs a good dual to
say about "honest money" but not oot
of tbem seoru to bavs any Interest In
booMt men.
Money can neither be honest nor dis
honest. Such a statement however, la
beyond tb comprehension of a mallet
hood. Therefor they continue to go
about tht strwot bowling (or "honest
money." 1 J
No otio can truthfully accuse McKlnley
o! Impartiality. He. sands niggers to
Idabo to kill white men aud bs send
white men to the Philippines to kill
niggers. That l tba waybs satisfied
bit conscience.
Th oio denounced by tb plutocratic
press aa "little Americans" ara tba men
who believe Id tba declaration of Ind.
pandence with all tbelr Wrts, and tba
man who so denounce thorn think that
document should b thrown in tba waste
basket. '
"It la trua" remarked McKluloy, "that
Llocoln aald that no man waa good
anoogh to govern another man without
bia consent, but then you must remem
bar that Mr. Llocoln waa not vary well
acquainted with ma or ba never would
have aald It."
Tba democrats of Kentucky ara today
advocating tba populist platform of
1805 without an exception. They have
found oat that the uieople of those
United Htatea demand populism aud
won't bare anything elaa even If It fa
branded "just as good."
General King aald that the Filiplnoa
ware far mora capable of self govern
meat than tba Cubana. Alger aoya that
that statement is a perfect defense for
tba anneiation of Cuba, and not an ar
go men t for the independence of the Tail;
Ippinee, All of which glveeoa another
ample of plutocratic logic.
Full roan aald "there la nothing to ar
bitrate." Pullman la dead nndjhls vast
fortune la foat being dissipated. Now
Grant of the ameltlng trust aaya to the
board of arbitration of Colorado:
"There la nothing to arbitrate." One of
the daya More long Grant will be
dead and when he appeare before fit.
Peter be will be told, "thora la nothing
to arbitrate."
If money waa something to eat or to
wear, thea what it was made of would be
a matter of some consequence. Hut aa
we can't eat it or wear it, what differ
euoe doea It make whether It l made of
gold, sliver or paper? Hut whether it
takes a big lot of corn, wheat or cotton
to get a small amount of money when
we have a debt to pay, la a matter of
very great Importance.
If McKlnUiy can find any vacant land

The Kearney New Era-Standard, whom
editor waa on the ground, given im ac
count of the Lichty-Malalieu resolu
tlona that were sent out usiberesolu
tlona of a Farmers Alliance, when no
aucb reaolutlona were evr pitd by any
farmers alliance, or by any body except
T.uht- Bobbin and Mallalieu. Tbe
account is practically the sam- a was
printed in the Independent. The editor
then remarks as follow: '
"The politics lu thia kind of sneak
campaigning ia of the same brand Mark
JIanna believes in, and which elected bim
United Rtates Senator from Ohio; The
republican party ia the motive power
behind Stebblns and Llobty in trying to
palm off on tba people tba falsehood
that nonulista of any number held a
meeting In Kearney and Issued an ad
drees. The populists of Buffalo county
will not be fooled by It, nor will any In
telllgent populist In Nebraska ba led to
vote against an honorably nominated
oo-operativ or fusion ticket in opposi
tion to tba desires of such mercenary
tool! of tba republican party as the
autbora of the addreaa above referred
to. The latent of the addrese ia to pre
vent fusion. If the republicans can pre-
fusion and there is a three-cornered
cornered fight In every polling precinct,
they will win. If they can hire so-called
popullata to create discontent, that is
busloess, and tbla la the reason Stebblne
and Llcbty were In Kearney two daya
lust week. Ilouoat populists are thor
oughly on the alert agalnet the middle-
of-theroad republican contingent of
which Btebblne and Llobty ara only two
of a number actively at work.
Mr. W. F. Fctterman, of Filley, Mo.(
wrltee a letter to the Independent and
aska; "Do yon know anything about
that fool" N. C. Henderson, of Wilson
villa, Nebraska? No, we do not, except
that from an enclosed letter we see that
Mr. Fetterman bas sized blm up about
right. In Henderson's letter be says:
"The reason that I spoke of the pops
claiming supply and demand aa the law

Now there ia history, economics, aud
literature for you. Wheat began to rise
long before election. There was not a
pop papr in this state that did not con
tinually point out that the riea In wbeat
waa caused by the famine in India and
the failure of crope in Argentina. Mr.
Towne, in a speech at the Oliver theatre
la this city, long before the conventions
met, and went into the whole subject
Portions of that speech were printed in
every free silver paper in the atate. The
day the silver conventions met In Lin
ooln there wore speeches made on the
eapitol grounds by Weaver, Hryan, Hoi
comb, aud otbors, all pointing out that
the rise was on account of short supply.
Populists have at all times held that
supply and demand regulates the price
of all commodities, as well ts the
price of money. It there were but ten
dollars In the world, the demand for dol
lars with which to pay off debts inquir
ing as many dollars a it now does, all
the land In the great state of Ne
braska would not be suflk-lont to buy a
tenth part of one of those dollar.
This distinguished economist further
says: "n bat was the cause ol so quick

been on account of war becuuse there

only two seta of fours.
Twenty-four of the Nebraska officers
are on the sick list, and the Montana,
Kaneae, Washington and South Dakota
regiments show twenty or more officers
In the hospitals or sick in their quarters.
These regiments have borne the brant
of the fighting. Their losse in killed
and wounded range from 160 in the
Montana regiment to 280 Nebraska
men." .
When tba First Nebraska geta borne,
that ia, what are left of them, if some of
these ImoerlallsU don't shut their
mouths, they probably won't have any
mouths that they can abut. .
The Waboo Democrat aaya: "The Ne
braska Independent published at Lin
coln, and by the way one of the strong
est and most ably edited reform papera
in tba state, baa coined a new name or
term for administration republicans. It
is such a happy bit and so fully expresses
the intellectually befogged condition of
the dupes of Mark Ilanna that the Dem
ocrat believes It ought to be generally
adopted aa a party designation for the
deluded followers of that prophet of evil.
The term referred to ia "Mullet Head"
and is defined as follows:" .
Tba Democrat then prints tba article
entitled "Mullet Heads" wblcb recently
appeared In this paper and adds: ''The
definition Is ao to tba point, any one,
even a "Mullet Head", conversant with
the flopping propensities of the genua
homo designated by the term will be
compelled at onoo to admit tba appel
lation Is a fitting one. Henceforward
'Mullet Head, goes." '
The Stanton Register, a red bot re
publican paper, does not take any stock
In the sufferings of tba Ffrst Nebraska.
It figures oat that tbey bavs not lost
many by death or diseass or in any
other way, It says that 00 per cent of
them ara alive and well and that "it Is
not easy to bow, under tba moat
favorable of conditions and best of man
agement, a less loss could reasonably
have been expected."
There are more than 200,000 men out
on a strike at this time, There ara ludi
cations that ninny mora will strike with
in the next few daya. Several atrikea
have been successful but in no case bas
wages been raised higher than in '03
when the cutting down began. In many
caeca where an advance of wuges bus
been announced in the plutocratic papers
the rise wo less than the cat made three
years ago.
: Sines Peffer went bock to tba repnbli
lane, tba pagoa of the great plutocratic
quarterlies and magazines are all open
to bim. In the days when be called him
self a populist, things were not that
way. In the eyes of these literary gen
tlemen the political party to wblcb a
man belongs fixes bis literary standing.
If he supports the republican party be
can have bis articles printed in the quar
terliea and magazines. If be doesn't,
then be can't and that's all there Is to it.
A panic Is sure to arrive on timer Not
one bas ever failed to arrive on tlmo
since modern financiering came Into
vogue and it will not fail now. The In
terest on debts Is groater by fur than
the producing capacity of the
nation above the cost of existence.
There will soon have to be another
"liquidation," a the. bankers say, aud
the books balanced by the bankruptcies.
They are just cleaning np the lust job
and some of the mortgages have not
been foreclosed yeti
Old Tlddlo-du-winka gave a good dem

The imperialists of . Lincoln and
Omaha put a wet blanket on the en
thusiasm with which th people of this
state were prepared to greet the First
Nebraska, by turning tbe meeting called
to arrange for their reception into a
regular republican campaign for McKin
ley and all that MoKinley and Mark
Ilanna represents. Tbe people of this
state and ol tbeclty of Lincoln felt like as
sembling en moss and pouring oat tbelr
gratitude la cheers for the brave living
and tears for tbe dead, woanded,sick and
dying of tbe braveat regiment that ever
marched under the stars and stripes.
All without regard to religious beliefs,
party affiliations, foreign and native
born, wanted to assemble and take tbe
returning soldier to their hearts and in
their arras and tell tbem bow proud
tbey wars that Nebraska bad furnished
to the world and to history such men.
All, we say, because there were none who
wanted any other sort of a reception,
except tbe few republican campaign
managers who gave to the stats a Hart
ley, a Moore and hundreds of other de
faulters. When tb First arrives In San Fran
cisco they will doubtless refuse to par
ticipate In any such a reception. Soma
of tbe committee have already sent In
thoir resignations and there are prob
ably mors to follow. . The only officer
who served In this war who was on tbe
program, General Vifquain, distinctly
repudiated tbe assertions made by tbe
campalgo managers. If tbe ;First Ne
braska Is to have a fitting reception,
new committees must bs appointed who
will see to It that politics Is kept oat of
It altogetbor. This meeting at the
Funk opera bouse was an Insult to every
officer and man In tbe regiment.
There Is not a tenet of tb populist
party except that of the government
Issue of paper money, that is not now
being advocated by the republican party
indifferent sections of tbe country.
Even tbe government lsus of paper
money was at one time advocated by
the whole party with the exception of a
few bankers In New York, Tbs I'lngree
republicans have succeeded by advocat
ing populist principles and making them
tbe paramount Issue in tbelr campaigns.
Members of 'the cabinet of republican
presidents bavs taken aoma of the popu
list principles and boldly advocated
tbem while holding office. Home have
advocated tbe publio ownership of tbe
telegraphs and somo '(postal savings
banks, and others other demand of the
populist platform. Tbe truth about It
is whenever tbey get bard pressed tbey
will take np some plank of tbe populist
platform aud win on It. That Is tbe
way Pingree did and be Is not tbe only
one. Tbey bavs been able to do this be
cause of tbe action of soma mallet
beaded populists. These sort of popu
lists will leave their own party and vote
for the republicans excepting when these
republicans are elected to office tbey will
enact these things Into law. They are
bigger fools than the mullet bead repub
The Christian Commonwealth, a so
cialist colony located lu Oeorgla, Is find
ing tbe same difficulties to contend with
that have confronted those at Raskin.
Hoclttlletio theories are very beautilul to
contemplate, but they don't work when
a practical application In attempted to
be made. A socialist colouy to be a suc
cess must be very strict in the admis
sion of members. The .socialistic theo
ries will not apply to mankind la grfuer-
al but to only a a select few. Of tbe
recent difficulties in tbe Georgia colony,
the Social Gospel, the organ of tbe col
ony, says:
"It must be understood that while our
door I open to all, yet people who
com bur and do not try to live pure,
honest, unselfish live, will b required
to leave.

It is very little goods that the inhabi

The welcome news bas just come from
Washington that Alger bas gone at last
Tb two years that be bas been in tbe
war department has been two years of
notorious incompetency and corruption.
The history of it is written in soldiers
graves in Cuba and tbe Philippine and
at tbe bottom of the sea where many a
dead soldier lie poisoned by Alger
canned beef. A deadly Incubns has been
lifted from tbe army. It remains to be
seen' whether tba lnoompetentwbo holds
tbe presidential office will fill the place
with anything better.
The editorial that appeared in tbe
State Journal some time ago advising
that tbe First Nebraska be not paidoff
until they reached Lincoln because tbe
boys were not to be trusted with money
and would fool it all away in San Fran
cisco is attracting attention of the fam
ilies and friends of tbe boys all over tba
state. These young men are the sons of
tbe best families of the state and are
not tbe bums that such talk intimates
that tbey are. A more insulting tblngl
was never said about a lot of men and
when what are loft of tba boys get back,
the Journal wili likely bear from tbem.
Tbe Waboo democrat has the following
remarks on tbe subject:
"The State Journal in a recent edi
torial, advocated withholding the Day
of the First Nebraska until it arrives in
Lincoln so as to prevent the boys from
squandering their money at San Fran
cisco and along tbe ronte borne. It was
a dirty, uncalled-for fling at tbe morals
of tbe regiment. Tbs boys of this regi
ment are tbe pick and flower of Ne
braska's best families, and tbe sheet in
question bas no grounds for such moan
Insinuations, n might as wen be said
here and now that the First Nebraska is
coming borne In a befitting manner and
its members wlli retire to Honored citi
zenship, respected and loved by all tbe
people, and tbe attempts of tbe State
Journal to Insult tbe regiment and Its
friend will be resented by both; and
further, tbe attempts of certain small
bore politicians to use the regiment as a
political cat's paw will also fail. It wilt
neither be made a side attraction to an
Omaha show by Cadet Taylor and bis
sang nor a football for Lincoln political
nincompoops of tue wtieedon-rnayer
gang and their ilk. Tbe boys of the J
reirlment will be received and welcomed
by the decent rewritable citizens of tbe
state, and the shysters and political
ringmasters will be given to understand
so at tbe proper time."
There is a widow in the city who Is tbe
nnfortnnate owner of a building and
corner lot valued at fiu,uuu. ine
taxes, water rates and repairs cost ber
47.60 a month or f 570.00 a year
Tbe income from rents last year was
9409.00 leaving her f 72.00 behind. To
earn her own living aud that 872.00,
she bas worked like a slave. She said
the other day, that if it were not for
that 972.00 she could get along and
not overwork herself. That Is what tbe
mullet heads call prosperity.
If free silver farmers would be a little
more careful about tbe terms they use
when talking with tbelr neighbors they
would make a lot of converts. Wbon
you start to town with a load of wheat
and are HMked what you are going to do,
sav: "I'm going to buy some money
ith this wheat. I hav a note coming
due and I have to buy some money to
pay it, but It takes a lot of wheat or
corn to bay a few dollar these days."
That will start mor thinking In a gold
bug's bead than an heur of argument.
While the populist i glad to see other
parties advocating hi principle lie
knows that tber is a mighty difference
In advocating principle for th ak of
curryiug an election aud la advocating
them because It is intended to enact
thsmlnto law. Ho "he keep bl ey

Who is Asa Taylor who is trying to

If be can't get reform enough in tbe
three reform parties of this state, what
kind of reform doesba want?
The catch phrases that tbe republicans
will use to tickle the mullet beads hav
already been coined. They will be "Tbe

rule It is the idle girls that go to ruin as
much as it is tbe idle boys who go to
tbe reform schools and prisons. Boys
and girls are brought up to work by the
farmers but in the cities there Is little
