The republican Idea seems to be that
'the honor of the notion must be upheld'
by crime and dishonor. That it the
only way that they have proposed so
far. ,

The Independent desire to spend
little time in a review of one issue of
sheet publi-id in Lincoln called the
Nebraska S;i!o Journal. It in a fair
sample of it daily ifl.sue -at least it does
not contain any more lies than are print
ed frc m day to day by that concern
The first item is as follow:

seem that George was the Hrnt bloody

inhabitants "subjects" of the United

times by tho founders of this republic

remarked King David. If he had read
last Friday's State Journal he would
have udded: "This is not 1 . hyperbolo,

Mark Hanna seems to have had his
iar to tho ground for he announces
through his friends that he'will not con
du.t tho campaign for the republicans
next time. We ore very sorry that he
will not. No other man would suit the
populists so well for the position.

tho son, wrecked the life of an innocent
young girl. As a wrecker Ilosewater
beats the Algerian pirates.
New York news last week was- to the
flVet that money was so plenty in that
city that tho great publishing house of
Harper Brothers went into tho hands of
n receiver and the New York Sun is so
hard pressed that it ratted its office and
out down the scale paid Union printers,
These are two of the par excellent gold
bug institutions of that city.
The banks never say anything about
"specie payments" any more. Wonder
why? Those of us who fought in the
ranks long years ago remember that that
was the battle cry of the money power
for many campaigns. The reason is that
the bankers are determined to have
business done with paper money here
after and they are to furnish the paper.
There seems to be an almost universal
demand in the populist papers of this
utate that Clem Deaver should resign
his place as national committeeman.
But Clem will never do it. There isn't
enough manhood iu him and never was
to iierform such an act. Ho will have to
be kicked out. The kicking will be done
at the next meeting of tho national com
By Helling bonds for 101 and buying

of Washington have presented to the
landholders 13,000,000 and given them a
high rate of interest beside. Any man
who denies that that is patriotic finan

It isn't safe in these days of MeKinley

that has neither length, breadth or

imagination and if it has anything "in

they call sound finance" and if you
ion t believe it is, you are either a luna

MeKinley has recently issued an or
der which puts the postal system of
Porto Rico back where it was twenty,
aeven years ago under the old Spanish
'rule. The recent improvements made
by the Spanish have all boon abolished.
The Porto Ricans have sent up a great
protest But what good will that do?
They have no rights under our constitu
tion or under any other constitution.
They are simply subjects under MeKin

to which they can appeal. MeKinley is
their czar and they must obey him. If
they don't, some more troops will be sent

of territory and not in relation to the
form of government. New York has
long been called "tho empire state,'
wholly on account of its size when com
pared to the other New England states.
With just as much fairness could the
word be taken from any modern speaker
ft hori he made some remark about the
Empire state, and claim that he was in
favor of wars of conquest ' and rulin
subject nations by force. .
Tim next item is like unto it, and is as
McClellen's celebrated' euphemism of
"change of ha-e," when he got the worst
ot it in Ins grapplmgs with Lee m the
early part of the civil war, is pirated by
the Boer dispatches from Pretoria. They
vary it a little by saying that after this
or tho other buttle, the Boer command
ers "Look another position."
The editor knew when he was writing
that item that it was a lie made out of
whole cloth for the fact is that
the Boers have sent no dispatches either
of that sort or any other, for the simple
leason that all the telegraph and cable
lines are in the possession of the British
army. Ho knew that it was impossible
for the Boers to send a dispatch at all,
and he simply lied because it is his na
ture to lie.
A little further down this Ananias
The Mochler river was bank full and
tho Boers had blown up the bridge and
hence General Methuen had no chance
to settle tho fortunes of the day w ith a
bayonet charge.
This sentence is a curiosity. The. whole
intention of it, as is plainly seen on the
face of it, is to lie to tho renders of the
paper in regard to tho contending pur
ties in South Africa. The British aro so
superior that all they 'needed was a
chance to make a "bayonet charge to
settle the fortunes of the day." Fancy
a general ordering a bayonet charge
where the enemy is armed with the mod
ern repeating rides! What would likely
liecome of that general's army? Bayonet
charges are thiugs of the past. But
this editor would have us to believe that
the Boers are so inferior to the British
that all the British want is a chance to
make a bayonet charge! General Jo'u-bt-rt
would be very happy to give them
such a chance three times a day.
The next article is an anti temperance
one criticising the recent action of the
Georgia legislature, It contains the fol
lowing lie, which is also made out of
whole cloth:
It is related ns an experience of Ad
miral Dewey t hat hisship having entered
a harbor in Maine, his sailors asked per
mission, as usual, to go ashore. The ad
miral thought a moment and said, "Yes,
mix is a prouiouiou siate, aa tne men
cannot get liqnor," and he ent them all
ashore for recreation. In about an hour
a messenger put otf from the town to the
ship with the report that the salors were
on n big spree and the police could do
nothing with them. The admiral had a
hard time corralling the lioys with the
lew sober men left him and he said it
was tho last time he would give his men
liberty in a prohibition state.
The next nrticte is about Cuba, and
starts out with the following lie it, too,
being made up out ol whole cloth.
It is pretty generally believed down i l
Cuba that the popular outburst against
the military government and tho pro
tests against changing tho uiilitarv wov-
ernment for a civil government organized
tor the nonce hy Uncle Sam, arises from
the difgust of the tieople of Havana and
other cities liee.iuse of tho persistence of
the Americans in cleaning up the sew
ers, streets and dwellings of the microbe
infesting towns. They object to being
put to the trouble of keeping clean,
ine omy coc'.'iusion mat any sanf
man can come to after reading that is
that lies bubble forth from the State
Journal editor like beer from a bung
hole. The audacity of it is the only re
deeming feature, How does he know
what is "pretty generally believed down
in Cuba?"
The next article is about the Chicago
big drainage canal. While there seems
to be no mothe to lie in such an article
as that, yet the writer is so habituated to
avoiding the truth that he cannot es
cape the habit So he says;
Y hat troubles New lork is not the
sewerage, but tho fact that this is really
a ship canal, connecting with the chain
of great lakes.
That caiatl a ship canal! But that is
only an innocent whopper, and so let it
go without further comment
The next paragraph starts a good big
troad gauged lio of tho nort that the
readers of the paper expect to see every
day. The edjtor says;
Since the Dingley bill was passed the
treasury department has been collecting
and locking up millions of dollars every
month beyond even the extraordinary
expenses of the government
Now of course that editor knows that

the revenues produced by the Dingley
bill fall far short of paying tlm expem-es
of tne government Besides that, enor
mous expenses and losses have recently
occurred in connection with the war in
the Philippines that have not been paid
or even entered upon the government
accounts yet, among them one fine war

ment and all.

of the effort of General Methuen to re

YY hether it was the Journal s intense
love of British imperialists or whether
the editor is incapable of writing an ar
tide without telling a lie, that was the
occasion of tho productkm of that para
graph it is hard to say. The news that
all other people have about the advance
of General Methucn's column is to the
effect that his first encounter with tho
Boers was at a river which he attempted
tocrossand failed and foughtone the most
desperate battles in the annals of old
England, that he was himself wounded
and suffered a heavy loss as wel as the
Boers. Ten miles a day is more than an
army can generally make when unop
posed, upon a steady march.
The last editorial begins this way:

Cuban applied for his naturalization pa
pers and be lore he could get them, he
was compelled by the clerk of the federal
court, who had the matter in charge, to
renounce his allegiance to the king of
Spain, "whose subject he is."
The above articles constitute the
whole of the editorial in that edition.
The Independent defies anyone to find
the equal of it for persistent, unqualified
lying in one edition of any other paper
published in the United States or in any
other part of the world,or in any other
world, hades included. Not an article
that is not a bald faced lie or a lie by
inference. That is the paper that could
not live for three months if it were not
supported by some professed christians
and men who claim, at least, to- live pas
sably moral lives.
The State Journol people may claim
that this edition of December 1st is not
a lair sample-7-the writers having just
returned from their Thanksgiving din- j
tiers lied with more facility than
usual. We will leave that subject to ar
titration by any honest man 'who will
iook over a montn s issues and compare
thein with this. -

ary body since legislative assemblies ex
isted, is about to be committed at Wash
ington. The bill that the republicans
propose to pass changes the contract un
aer which the rich men of this nation
bought all the bonds outstanding and
makes them payable in gold alone. That
will practically double the value of those
bonds. By one stroke it will add to the
riches of the rich over one thousand
millions of dollars. It will do this at
the request of the rich and without any
thing being returned to the people for it.
It is a theft of a thousand millions from
the producer.! of this country. It will
increase the fortunes of the already
enormously rich by that much and add
that much tt the burden of the already
overburdened poor. There m no crime
in all history that will compare with
this. .
In another section of the bill, which
will be found in. another column, there is

mous increase, added to the high tariffs
of tho Dingley bill, will not pay the ex

Kinley and imperialism. The present
rate of expenditure is almost as great as
in 1803 and 1804, and is greater than any
other year of our history as a nation.
In those two years we had over a million
soldiers in the field fighting the most
bloody battles of all history.
The effect of this heavy taxation man
ifests itself, as all economic forces do,
very slowly. But it is beginning to be
felt everywhere. Nearly every man is
finding it harder and harder each month
to meet his bills. Taxation, as well as
trusts, necessarily raises the price of ev
erything that the peoplo consume. Ev
ery one is beginning to say that it ctsts
more to maintain a family this year than
H did last. It comes hardest on farmers
and next on those men working for sala
ries or wages.' But every one begins to
feel the heavy hand that is laid upon
him. He must work harder and live
cheaper. If we will indulge in wars of
conquest, a large army and navy, we
must pay the cost, and the cost all comes
out of the producers. This result is just

ine Journal not satisfied with the
amount of lying that it did that issue on
its own account, also reprinted this,
knowing that it was a lie. If one was to
judge of the moral standing of the
American people by the gold standaid
press he would come to the conclusion
that Sodom was a respectable communi
ty in comparison with them. What good
do they suppose will result from this
sort of journalism?
For twenty-six years the republican
party has worn a mask. All this time it
has had the determination to give the
gold standard the validity of law and all
the time it has proclaimed in its plat
forms and in the speeches of ite leading
senators and representatives that it has
been for bimetallism. At last it has
thrown off the mask and declares for the
gold standard without any equivocations.

vital one. Governor Poyntor has sigai

The Independent asks every reader of it
as soon as he gets this edition to sit
down and write a short letter to thin
office naming the man who he thinks
should be appointed and his reasonn
therefor. Let it be short and to the
point. The greatest battle of the cen
tury is to be fought in the United States
Senate in the next few months. Who
should be sent to represent the people
of the state in that contest?
We have reached the point in the
meeting of congress when the question
must be answered whether this nation in
to go on in the way wo have followed for
the last 125 years, declaring that all gov
ernments derive their just powers from
the consent of the governed, or whether
we will abandon that principle and at
tempt the government of subject na
tioas. The secretary of war in his aa
nual report discuesses at great length
the problem of colonial government He
recalls that the treaty of Paris places ia
congress alone the de-termi.t ation of the
civil rights and political status of the
native inhabitants of the territories
ceded to the United States. He arrrues
that this limitation completely deprives-
these people of the right to have the
islands treated as states or as territory
previously acquired has been treated, or
even to assert a legal right under the
provisions of the constitution, which wa
established for the people of the United
States themselves.
"The secretary says it is essential that
'orto Rico should receive substantially
the same treatment at our hands as she
received from Spain when a colony."
Will congress decide this quostioa as
tho MeKinley administration demands?
Will they declare that the Filipino
fter they have been bought, paid for
and annexed, "have no legal right under

'orto Eico shall receive Af. ri,r h..,

lican majority on the head of the ticket
more than a hundred votes, elected one
county officer, and came within a hair's

were in Kansas. After the official count
was made the republican maioritv k-
state is shown to be a little over 0,000
Mckinley's majority in ISM o-j.rv
So the great republican irnin a-nu". 'i '
of 247,000! The republicans think it.
very nice thing to have the associated
press and hundreds of ffret ,t;i;
