THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT.
THE COMING AGE.
The December Coining Age ia a capi
tal Bumber. The issue closes the first
year of thin magazine, which sprang into
instant public favor and which has
steadily in proved .since its initial duiii
ber. The present issue is very rich in
timely and thoughtful papers and is
handsomely illustrated. Among the
leading subjects treated are "Puritan
inni Play Houses of Boston," by the Rev.
J. Henry Wiggin: "American Art, by J
J. Enneking; "The Life and work of P
Edwin Eiwell, Scu'ptor," illustrated, by

Canada," by Rev. Charles Aubrey Ea

Tufts College; "The Republic of Man,"
by Prof. Nathaniel Schmidt, of Cornell
University; "Is Our Universe Primarily
Spiritual?" by J), E. M. Uabbitt.LL. D.;
'The Poems of Emerson," by Mr. Charles

poems and an original and striking
story by Mrs. C. K. Roifsnider. The pub

HAND DOWN ANOTHER
The position of the imperialists that
the United States should first subjugate
the Filipinos and then deil with the
great moral question of whether the
United States should engage in such a
business or not is aptly illustrated by
the story of a pair of darkies robbing a
henroost, The one who was indus
triously handing down the pullets, being
attacked by a qualm of cons?iencp,
asked: "Deacon Tompkins, am it right
to take dese chickens?" To which the
deacon replied: "Dat am a great moral
question, Deacon Johnsing, which de
time and de 'casion am ISot 'propriate to
discuss. Han' down arjodor of dem pul-

edness has been paid off and this is not .
due ur til 1901." Another year of popu
list control and Kearney county will aul
owe a cent. This is the history of nearly
every count? in the state. Who is not
proud of populist rule in Nebraska?

MR. JONES, THE JOURNALIST.
Somewhere along the line I hope that
the new board of regents will devote a
little attention to the school of journal
ism tit our state university. Prof. Jones,
who ia head push of that college (I don't
know whether ha is a dean, or whathis
title is) ought to have an assistant who
knows Komoihing about newspaper work.
Journalism is all right for a man like
John Jacob Astor or Jones, men who can
hold their jobs by virtue of either money
or political pull, but the average young
hustler who has to earn a living must be
taught newsraper making if his course
at the university is going to do him any
good must. learn how to uso his head.
Jones, as n journalist, cannot be expected
to teach that, even if he does manage to
have students fill up the news columns
of his paper each day at au expense of
nothing to the business manager and
several dollars to the state. I don't
want him removed, because there is
nothing like him in the world; but he
ought to have a practical newspaper man

were $72,000 of bonded indebtedness.

In twenty years the republicans saddled
a debt of 872,000 on the county, and all

A SELDY SENTIMENT
That Telegram of Condolence Sent to Mrs.
John A. Logan by the Emperor
of the Philippines, 1
A great many peoplo are wondering
what was the motive of General Ot s
and the administration in censoring the
dispatches announcing the death of Ma
jor John A. Logan. Was there any "mil
itary necessity" for keeping the facts
from the public? It is true that the
moral sense of the nation has been
shocked by ' the death of this brave
young officer of distinguished lineage,
but the shock would have been no great
er if all the circumstances of the deplor
able tragedy had been published. Nor
does President McKinley add anything
to his seedy reputation by .attempting lo
soothe the breaking hearts of the young
officer's bereaved wife and mother by ut

We hear very little said till after the re
bellion when the money, Bharks through
the republican party, had the people's
money destroyed and the national banks
established, and gave control of nearly all
of the money. Just before the presiden
tial election the money power would
flood tho country with money to be
loaned on mortgages, and then before
the next presidential election the money
power would lock ud their money so the
people could not pay their mortgages.
Then the money sharks would foreclose
the mortgages and take the people's
farms. This has been the order of the
day for the last twenty years and the
peopie are mere slaves.
