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. - . . Atkloon, Kami...

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 Campaign Opening The presidential and state campaign will be opened ' in Lincoln July 10th.

Corner JollitM and Far nam ta, QC1AHA, NEB. 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 This Horning larerpool Cables: WTieat 3-4 d. lower; corn lower.

Mr. Gness" enters the canvass with the highest respect of all his acquaintances and the utmost confidence of his friends that he is thoroughly qualified for the position to which he aspires. , ! Supports Wheeler ; "We are in receipt of a long communi cation advocating .'the nomination .of Hon. O. F. Wheeler, of Furnas county, for auditor. The position of state audi tor is second " in importance only to the governor. It is urged that a man of ex perience, ability and unquestioned in tegrity should be chosen for that office. Auditor Cornell has proven most thor oughly adapted for the place.

" ;v ' 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. ; ; Ineom'bMtlM Straw. j J It has been proved by repeated ex periments that, straw saturated with a solution of lime,' or common white wash. Is Incombustible. This fact is of great Importance to the rural popu lation, as thatch.
