We are informed that Mr. O. C. Wees
Der. the present assistant, will be a can
didate before the fusion conventions for
secretary of state. It being admitted
that this place . goes to the populists, we
desire to approve the candidacy of Mr.
Weesner. lie has made an industrious,
able aud painstaking official. He has
an enviable record as a business man
and an official, and the conventions could
select no better timber, in our judgment.
Harlan County Democrat.
, Roll of Honor
The Independent feels that it is but
meet and proper that some sort of ac
knowledgement should be made to the
many readers of this paper for the un
selfe-h work theyhavo been doing to ex
tend its circulation. The following is a
lifti oi uioe wno nave recently sent in
mubs. For years the Independent has
come weekly" into their homes and they
have always found it an active, able and
enthusiastic advocate of the principles
upon which the farming and industrial
population of this country believe that
liberty, progress and permanent pros
perity of the common people must al
ways rest. The paper has never had the
capital to expend large sums in sending
out canvassing agents or in other ways
to get subscribers. Its circulation now
extends to every state ana territory in
the union except Alaska, and to foreign
countries and "our cploniesr" . This im
mense circulation has been obtained in a
way tnatpernaps no otner paper ever
obtained one. It has been obtained by
the subscribers who took and paid for
their own papers. These men, for the
most part beinp earnest reformers and
desiriDg to spread the principles in
which they themselves - believed, have
gone out to their neighcors and solicited
aubscribers. lear alter year, as tne pa
per has come to them, always full of
wound,- healthful and vigorous articles,
they have become more and more enthu
siastic in their efforts to spread its cir
culation, believing.that it. was the most
potent influence in the west in building
up the party and spreading among tne
rjeople correct principles. That is how
the Indepenper,t has obtained its pres
ent immense circulation. If acy other
periodical ever grew to prominence and
tower in the same way, we nave never
heard of it. The Independent has been
the advocate of the interests of the
common people, and in return the peo
ple have been its advocate. To all those
whose names appear below, all of whom
have ent in clcbs of subscribers, and to
many others who have done like service,
the Independent returns its sincere
thanks. - . .

The situation in China, according to
the dispatches that the policy of the cen
sor hip which McKinley has established,
are permitted to see the - light, -seems to
be growing worse and worse. The Inde
pendent seriously distrusts the accuracy
of most of them. In fact it- is inelined
to believe that the public has riotf been
allowed to know anything of the - real
truth about this whole business. Much
that has been printed has been by later
nsws proved to be false. It does not
seem creditable that the government of
China would deliberately undertake to
fight the whole world. Those who . run
the Chinese government may be heathen,
but they certainly are not idiots.
; When the truth is at last learned it
will probably be to the effect that the
foreigners who have gained access to the
country, have" been so overbearing in
their, treatment ot the natives that a re
volt was inaugurated. That the Chinese
officials would, in some measure, sympa
thise with the disturbers would be only
in harmony of what we know of human
nature, which is pretty much the same
whether it is covered up with a brown
Fulton, W. M..
skin or a white skin. The Independent
does believe that the " trouble has come
chiefly from the presence and work of
the missionaries, as has ' been asserted,
an to which assertion the Chinese min
ister at Washington gave; his approval.
From time to time, little scraps, have
been printed showing with what cruelty
the native inhabitants have been treated
by the agents of corporations that are
building railroads , in China. It has
been the greed for gold, that has created
most of the disturbance ; and not the
work of the missionaries,' although the
greed for converts may have added. tQ
-the unrest. ' ' -.
Troops are being sent to China by all
nations by the thousand by this nation
as well as by the others. Severe, fighting
has already taken place in which quite a
nurnber of Americans have been killed
and wounded and it appears that we
have another war on bur hands. The
newspaper men at " Washington s report
that there is the greatest activity in all
departments of the army and immense
preparations for war is evident on every
nana. - " . , .
The navies of all the world are
sembling in Chinese waters. v McKinley
is. dispatching war ships, . according to
the associated press reports, from the
Atlantic and Pacific txjasts and from the
Philippines. . Urgent dispatches have
been sent to Gen. McArthur to hurry
forward troops from his command and it
is estimated that a transport Is soon to
leave San Francisco with a regiment of
cavalry, while the horses, will be shipped,
from Puget Sound. , If .this is not war,
what is it? McKinley has declared and
waged one war without the authority of
congress. Why should he not engage in
another, or for that matter just as many
as ne takes the notion to wager The
constitution provides that "congress shall
have power to declare war, to raise and
support armies, to provide and maintain '
a navy, but McKmley has usurped that
power and the constitution has gone
into the waste basket along "with the
declaration of independence. The like
of this usurpation was never seen in all
the world before. Some one at W ashmg- .
ton suggested that if we were to have a
war with China, congress would have to
be called together, but the idea was
laughed at by the administration officials
as extremely absurd. It is Emperor
McKinley now and no mistake. ,
The upheaval in China has forced to
withdraw troops, not only from India.
but from South Africa also. This seems
to have given new life to Oom Paul's
burghers and they have been' pushing
the English army not only in the Trans
vaal but also in the Orange Free State.
Lord Roberts line has been cut again
and a large slice of the railroad de
stroyed. It is winter in that country
now and it is said that not only the British
cavalry horses, but the other stock upon
which the mobility of the army depends
is dying off for want of forage. This
state of affairs makes the condition of
the two brave republics far from being
desperate. If on top ocall this a muti
ny should break out in India on account
of the withdrawal of troops from among
those j conquered people, Joe Chamber
lain would be apt to find out, as a cow
boy would say, that he had bit off more
imperialism than he could chaw." Mc
Kinley and Mark Hanna may fiad them
selves in the same-fix.; 4

The Markets
Weekly market letter, furnished by H.
R. Penny & Ca-i No, 131 South Eleventh
street, Lincoln, Nebraska.
Lincoln, Neb., June 27. The past week
has been a great week for the farmers.
All the markets forfarm products, have
made material advances, and. are much
higher than at this tim& last year;
Wheat has been the, leader. July
wheat, in Chicago selling up to 88i per
bushel Monday, showing ah advance of
over 23 cents inside of the month.- An
enormous amount of speculation has
swept into the wheat market, which has
carried the other markets with it. The
market is in such a condition that no
one dares to guess where the advance
will culminate. The price may be run
to $1.(0 a bushel, or may be set back to
75 cents.- V- - - -
The . crop damage reports from the
northwest have been worked over so
much and so forcibly, a month or more
ago, that even the closest observers and
shrewdest of speculators can find no
plausible explanation for the great ad
vance of the past two weeks," While the
heaviest dealers were looking for an ad
vance, as a result, of the northwest con
dition, when the market had shown an
advance . of., 5 or " 6 . cents ..they all sold
their wheat and even went short, but of
course were forced to cover their lines at
& higher figure.
Another remarkable thing has been
the strength shown. Up to last Monday,
there has not been a set-back of import
ance since the advance started. Every
day except three-' since June 5th, the
closing price has been' higher than the
day preceding. ' ,
This morning ' the Liverpool cables
came ld4 lower, which was somewhat
less than was looked for. Our market
sold down to 811, from which point it
quickly advanced to S4i, closing today
at 83. - r : ": - - : . -
The stretch in the wheat market has
also had its effect on corn. July corn
in Chicago sold up to 421c and has held
steady, not sympathizing with the de-'
cline in the wheat yesterday, and even
showing an advance of Jc while wheat
was breaking 2c
- This is considered remarkable, too, in
the" face of an almost perfect crop pros
pect.', - " "
The corn states have had ample and
frequent showers all this month, but the
rains were not heavy enough to interfere
with cultivation. The crop is free
enough from weeds, and is growing rap
idly and has an early start and will be
well advanced before a summer drought
can catch it. Speculators have bought
corn on a' large scale, notwithstanding
the excellent prospects, influenced main
ly by the advance in wheat. Corn bull
ed so easily last spring that they think
it can go up some more. The price of corn
is low compared with wheat. It has
been relatively higher than wheat for
months past because there has been an
extraordinary demand for it. The mar
ket has also suffered some by the North
west drought, as there is not much corn
raised in that section, and . those states
will probably have to buy corn for feed
ing purposes, which will affect prices to
some extent.- T "' '.T-?rr"i ' -
. Another motive that has been advanc
ed for the ? the buying of corn, is , that
the theory that the drouth in the North
west is a forerunner of a dry and hot
July in the corn belt. The bull senti
ment developed in corn is likely to last
until the July weather proves whether
the theory is a good one or not. f

"We are in receipt of a long communi

Hon. O. F. Wheeler, of Furnas county,
for auditor. The position of state audi

Auditor Cornell has proven most thor

strong convictions . and great determina

For Secretary of State ,1
The office of secretary of state has a
record for sound and successful admin
istration the past four ' years! It has
done a larger business, involving more
correspondence, with Jess -cost' than
any of its predecessors. From being an
annual expense of thousands of . dollars
to the great body, of state taxpayers it
has come not only to pay all its own ex
penses, but has contributed $8,000 to the
general fund of the state in the three,
and one-half years past. It has " been
prompt, efficient and accommodating to
the public and its record has - been a
source of strength to the populist cause.
1 Mr. O. C. Weesner, who as" deputy
under Secretary Porter, has had imme
diate charge of the administration and
management of the office the past four
years, is a candidate for nomination as
secretary; His record as a careful, oblig
ing and economic manager of the affairs'
Of the office isohr of the strongest argu
ments-for , 4his nomination. Every rel
fc inaugurated during the past threj
and one-halfi-S has ! been either with
his initiative or active ex-operatiorf..His
nomination for secretary , vwouldf be ap
proval of ;his good work as subordinate
and insurance of the continuance of the
same...-: . '""- - ;
Outside of his official career Mr. Wees
ner has a good record as a business man
and populist. For ten years previous to
1896 he was a traveling salesman for the
.Nave & McOord company, of bt. Joe
covering the territory of South Nebraska.
"At a time when the commercial and pro
fessional classes were almost eolid
against the populist movement he joined
the populist party (in 1890) and openly
championed its principles and organiza
tion on the railroad and wherever he
went. In recognition of his services his
friends in southern - Nebraska brought
his name forward as. . candidate for sec
retary in 1896 and - came near securing
the nomination for him. ;
The friends of Mr. Weesner will pre
sent his name to the coming . populist
convention on the strength -of his first
class official record, his standing . as a
business man- and his record as a pio
neer populist at a time and in a position
when it required courage and knwledge
of populist principles to be a populist. ;

periments that, straw saturated with a

lation, as thatch. Is thus not only ren
