confidence they - must - ' enjoy. They
should be men who may be depended on
to carry out faithfully pledges made to
their constituents before election. They
should be men , whose - careers both in
public or in private life afford a guar
anty of honest performance of every
duty imposed. To nominate men who
are known to. be untrustworthy orenal
simply invites defeat at the pools. .
Another consideration that will gov
ern the independent voters will be the
freedom of the respective candidates
from corporate control. While"eorpora
tions have a right to expect fair treat
ment at the hands of the legislature the
rank and file, who constitute the back
bone of all parties, are- not likely to rally
round candidates who 'have corporation
labels on their ' backs ', no , matter " under
what party flag they may sail. This
lesson has been taught by past history
at the cost of the supremacy of the re
publican party in Nebraska and should
not be forgotten in the year when repub
licans have everything at stake.

leaders of the. party see the need of ome

how quickly he would grab.
News of the Week
The eyes of the whole world have been
centered on China during the week. The
occurences there have been of the most
astonishing character. The anti-foreigri
movement has spread nearly all over the
kingdom.. Pekin has been cut off from
communication with the outside world
foreign ministers have been besieged in
their legations. It is reported that the
chancellor of the Japanese government
and the -German minister have-both
been murdered. There was a concerted
movement on the part of all the nations
to protect their - citizens. Wardships
and soldiers have been hurried forward
by every government, and immense na
vies now lie in the Chinese harbors. A
relief force was started toward Peking
under the command of a British admiral
and it has not been heard from since
except by rumor which states that it is
hemmed in by hostile forces in a - desert
and that it was without f ood ' or water.
The Chinese forts at Takw fired on the
foreign warships and wre first bombard
ed and then assaulted ty va'land force
and taken. The administration has or
dered the 9th infantry to proceed from
the Philippines to China. The British
are sending troops from India and even
from South Africa. 'Russia and Japan
have both landed large forces as well as
France and Germany. 5

Another sun-rise war is on our hands.
China must be- conquered, split up and
civilized. Twenty thousand soldiers
and ten of our best war ships "must go
there, raise the flag and . never- haul .. it
down. A chunk the size of Texas will
be sufficient to grow our own tea. Mc
Kin'.ey knows -what chunk he is to have
by agreement with the powers. So it is
very necessary that he should be re
elected or we may not get our share. It
will not do to trust such matters in raw
hands. Hip, hip for the Chinese war,
larger army and a stronger navy.
The flag, the flag. To hear some of
the imperial republicans talk, one would
think the old flag, stars and stripes was
all there is to the republic of America.
That we have only to fight for that.
But the ilag is no more than - any dish
rag without the declaration of indepen
dence and the- constitution. How
does it look stuck up on a pole in the
Philippines aud the declaration five
thousand miles away? What is the use
of a dog's tail without the dog? Dogs
haul down their tails when caught
killing sheep 'or in any other mischief.
We have been killing men over there not
in support of the declaration but be
cause those people want to be independ
ent. The very thing our fathers fought
for here, we are fighting against over
there. - Better pull down the flag and
bring it away as any dog would his tail
when caught killing sheep. If they
would load their cannon with the dec
laration of independence, any patriot
would touch it off, but to load them
with gold standard, hijrh tariff and trust
no decent man would hreit at a skunk.
That is the gold bug plan, to conquer
every silver country on earth. Chiaa is
next in the row.
How is it that Omaha and Lincoln are
talking about a decrease in their census.
It was a republican work then, it is a
republican work now. The trouble' is
the stutters have gone to Cuba. - If they
would bring Tom Cook back, Omaha
could easily dig up three hundred thous
and. : It was stuffing that beat the pro
hibition amendment. But Rosewater
ought to be able to fill the - place of all
the leading republicans who have gone
to Cuba. An honest count will brine
j the number in Lancaster county below
1 70,000, and that will save' us -several
la.l 1 .1 . 1 1 . ' a
inousana aouars in county running ex
penses. The number of our county offi
cers and their pay is founded on the
supposition that we have seventy thous
and. But they will stuff enough to keep
all the republicans in office.
There are two government taxes that
bear heavily upon the destitute poor.
The tax on tallow and butter mixed for
table is no use. It is just as healthy,
just as nutritious and costs not one half
what full cream butter does. Tallow
can be bought for three " to five cents a
pound. Nine ponnds mixed with one
pound of cream butter and a little lard
oil or cotton seed oil added, to soften it,
makes a very good substitute for gilt
edge, thirty cent butter., ; Butter, is a
half luxury anyway. Thousands of poor
people do not see a roll of butter on their
tables in months. If a palatable substi
tute could b5 had for five or six cents,
many could afford it. Then tallow but
ter will keep much better in hot weath
er than cream butter. - Our crack cream
eries have been detected in mixing two
pounds of .tallow to three of cream but
ter for summer use. It stands up better
and gives better satisfaction. Farm dai
rymen nave learned tne trick. They
shave up the tallow fine and put it in the
churn with the cream and get that much
toore butter. It is actually better for
summer use. Then the tax on mixed
flour is another burden on the poor. Not
one-fourth of the people eat the high
grade roller . flour. It is hardly seen
among the laboring people" of Europe.
If they buy any American our it is the
second grinding flour.. To mix in one
half white corn meal makes it in every
way better. We were . fed , on rye and
corn bread and grew six feet long and
we would pay two prices for the - same
kind of bread today. It is not a fraud
to make things better than advertised.
There is no doubt that the people of
this country. will stand by the president
in any endeavor to protect the lives and
property of missionaries and American
citizens in Chinavbuli any appearance of
collusion with the great powers to dis
member China and partition it among
the nations of the earth or any foreign
alliance whatever will be met -with the
The fighting in South Africa between
Roberts and. Gen. Botha ended in a
drawn battle. The Boers retreated tak
ing all their guns, ammunition and sup
plies with them a little tartner to tne
east. Lord Roberts then opened com
munication with Gen. Botha in regard
to a surrender. Botha asked for six days
time to consider the matter and Lord
Roberts granted five days, but before
the end of the time specified, Gen. Botha
sent word that the nght must go to the
bitter end. England's entanglement in
China will be taken advantage of by the
Boers to the fullest extent. The Afri
cander population in Cape Colony are
protesting most vigorously against the
destruction of the- two republics and
even in England the -opposition to the
Joe Chamberlain scheme are beginning
to take on new life. L -.
Theodore Griess, of Clay county, has

service as deputy, he was nominated and
elected county treasurer and re-elected.
He is serving as county treasurer at the

In regard to the situation in . the Phil

can paper says: "We venture to say that
the Filipinos now operating in Luzon
have a better status and are entitled to
more respect and consideration than
were the Cuban insurgents in February,
1898. when we went to war with a friend
ly nation on their . account. The "pa
triots" in Cuba are exactly what the Fil
ipinos now are. The truth is, however,
that the Filipinos are infinitely more en
titled to recognition as beligerents than
the Cuban insurgents ever were, and
that our authority in Luzon is not half
so thoroughly established as Spain's
was three years ago in Cuba." This is
no doubt a fair statement of the case

The republican national convention at
Philadelphia had done nothing up to the
hour of going to press. The dallies have
been filled with columns of stuff for the
last four or five, days but they are filled
up with surmises and guesses, and not
one man in ten thousand reads it. At j
the present writing it seems probable j
that Roosevelt will be nominated for vice j
president. He has constantly asserted j
that he would not accept the nomina- j
tion, but the situation seems to the !
bosses to be desperate, and he must take i
it. All agree that there is not a par- j
ticle of enthusiasm and thatall efforts
to manufacture" any : have been failures, j
Many excuses-excus63 f that take up a j
great deal of ; spaee have been tele
graphed every day.. The fact that no one
takes any particular interest in the con
vention not even the citizens of the city
is not denied, When the convention
met there were large vacant spaces in all
parts of the hall. Tickets of admission
were selling for $3.00 for the whole con
vention a thing that "was never Known
at any pastfcoffvntioiJS-of' tbe party.
The reason given forwantof enthusiasm
is that there is no.contest.for the nomi
nation. But to a disinterested "by
stander" it would appear that there is
nothing over which, any "man can en
thuse in the whole -performance. A lot
of Negro delegates from the south who
have no chance to sell their votes and a
lotof white delegates from the north
waiting for'ordersfBOm Haima is not a
situation out of which to- manufacture
enthusiasm.. . -
At Kansas City the same situation in
regard to no contest , for "the nomination
will exist. We shall see whether there
will be the same wet blanket sort of a
performance. From present indications
it looks as though the sky will be split
with yells and tbw' earth tremble with
the noise of the shouts. The republican
national convention is so far, a. boss
ridden, flat failure.
The populist delegation from Polk
county will "present the name of J. E.
Peterson as a candidate for secretary of
state. Mr. Peterson is a youn man,
was born in Sweden and is very popular
with- that nationality throughout the
state. He bas -served two-terms as

Business success depends upon busi
nesslike methods business attainments
and business experience.
The man or corporation which devotes
more time to destroying competition
than to building up its business may
succeed for a time, but in the long run
the old adage,
Attend to Tour Business
and Your Business Will Attend to You,"
is especially applicable to life insurance
enterprises. The Bankers Reserve Life
Association of Omaha has outstripped
all competitors in this state, principally
because its business is conducted upon
business principles by business men of
large technical and general business ex
perience. Its Policies Are I'neicelled Anywhere.
They are clean-cut, easily understood,
unequivocal, direct and attractive.' The
policy holder knows exactly what is con
tained in his contract and the company
has demonstrated its ability and its in
tention to carry out its contracts.
VThe Best Business THen in the State'
are its policy holders. They represent
the mercantile, banking and professional
strength of this prosperous and growing
commonwealth. Oa its advisory board,
in nearly every county in Nebraska, in
quirers will find the best known, most
successful business men of the several
communities. They stand for honesty,
economy and efficiency in the manage
ment, control and development of the
Jealous and mall-Minded Competitors
may howl and shriek themselves hoarse
and slander the management and the
company, but with sensible men, and
especially with the class of men secured
by this growing home company, these
malevolent attacks merely strengthen
the organization. For that reason Pres
ident B. H. Robison and his especially
strong corps of field workers complacent
ly smile at the malicious attacks of com
petitors and continue-to -write more
business every week than all the .
Kicking Companies Combined.

Which Shall it be?
The political situation in the United
States begins to look as if we should
study the two problems and decide
which we favor. If the people want a
big standing army and ah : empire, ' vote
for McKinley, for it will be McKinley
and an empire or Bryan and a republic
The republicans will make a lie out of
their platform. It will be -for a self gov
ernment for Cuba and for a reduction
m the revenue. Then they will have a
plank denouncing the trusts. When
every man with- a thimblefull of sense
knows that plank will be a lie just to
catch votes. Why haven't they tried to
stop ithe trusts if they are so bitter
against them as they try to make people
think they are? There are men in Au-
rora, Nebraska, who, "if they knew that
the election . of McKinley, would turn
this Republic into ariEmpire, still they
would vote for McKinley and an Empire
for party sake. They "dont care any
thing f or principles -: sA.ll- rational men
know that they are void of the principles,
at least of Abraham Lincoln. .
Some of the British republicans say:
"Oh, Lincoln is dead, and I don't see
whv vou Pops are always referring to4.
Lincoln and his principles. Don't you
know thines have chanced?"
Yes, they hate- changed to suit the
money bags of' Wall" street and the
