Ilaasta Badly Seared.
Mark Hanna notwithstanding all his
Lluater and swagger, is badly scared-,
lie is working and hiring others to
work yes. hiring is the proper word
like beaver. I hare it from a perfect-.
ly reliable source that Mark has hired
two slick agents to organize and spy
out the situation in every county in ev
ery state which is not certainly and
OTerwh-!ailngly Democratic. They
have ben busy at this Job ever since
; February. They of course do not go
j about announcing themselves as Murk's
1 crimps, but they assume the character
- of agents for some article or other
any old thing will do and thus worm
' themselves into the confidence of un
! suspecting people. Their business is to
i find out what Republicans are sore and
what they are sore about, who are for
! sale and how much it will take to buy
j them, who are timlfi and can be bull
I dozed and the lest methods to accom
I plish that object and so on to the end
1 tf the chapter. Honest men every
where are hereby warned to b-D- on
their guard against Mark's envoys and
plenipotentiaries.
Patriotism a Crime.
If Senator Eugene Hale of Maine !
d6 not keep his optic peeled, he is lia
Ll to be harnessed up sans ceremonie
and pruiwcuted for leze majesty and
cocked tehind the bars. It would be a
pity that such a thins should happen
Iro him: bet, rampant Republican that
!.' in and from a rrx-k ribbed state, he
shows Indubitable sijrns of humanity
and patriotism monstrous crimes In
the opinion of such administration bra
tos as Senator Aldrlch. When Senator
II&1 not long since made a plain state
ment f fact incontrovertible facts
to the efiVot that when In 1879 congress j
appropriate! a large sum to pay for ;
ftf-nding to starving India the food con
tributed by generous western Ameri- ;
cans, the English government made no
acknowledgment of the vast charity
and has not done so to this day, Al- !
drlch bobbHl up like a Jack in the box i
end promptly rebuked Hale for making
"a political spewh," a performance
which Senator Hale would do well not
to repeat if he wishes to stand well at j
court.
JSometimes vaulting ambition o'er- ;
baps itself and falls on t'other side
with a dull sickening thud. That was
exrnpllfiMl In tb closing days of the
fusion by what happened to Uncle Joe
Cannon, chairman of the committee on
appropriations. Uncle Joe has a lurk
ing suspicion that he runs the whole
machine and consequently allows him
lf a vast deal of space in which to
gyrate. Buoyed up by his own enthu
siasm. Uncle Joe jumped Amos Cum
taings and despitefully ued him and
his fellow conferees on the naval .ap
propriation, bill. That's precisely where
your Uncle Joseph dropped his water
melon.' The' unexpected happened short-
j after Uncle Joe's saltatory perform
ance. far Amos jumped him and danc-
ed a war Jig upon the statesman from
Danville. He beat, kicked, cuffed, bit
and gouged the venerable calisthenic
artist and finally flung his remains in
to the air with this declaration: "You
are n Cannon: you are only a toy mus
ket r The house cheered Amos and
whooped and yelled till it was out cf
breath and red in the face.
Aa to the Vlee Presidency.
Bryan will certainly l nominated at
Kansas City. Nothing but death or his
declination caa prevent that. As he is
In the Cower of his years and in per
fect fettle he is not likely to die be
twixt now and the first days of July.
As to declining, that's out of the ques
tion. Even If be wanted to decline the
people would not let him do so. The
platform is also practically written.
Everybody knows what it will be. The ( Inconceivable that baseness and stu
only thing In doubt at Kansas City Is j pidity can be carried any farther. And
the vice presidential candidate. Who
shall he be? What manner of man do
we want? I have two well considered
and well settled opinions as to that,
He should be a man mentally, morally,
physically and politically fit to be pres
ident. It Is arrant nonsense to go to
the trouble of carrying the country and
then have only one life stand between
us and the disappointment of our
hope. Bryan vill be elected, but a fe
ver, an accident or the bullet of an as
sassin might remove him at any time.
Therefore we ought to nominate his
running mate not only with reference
to bit vote getting qualities, but also
and especially with reference to his fit
ness for the higher and greater office
the highest and greatest on earth. He
should be, above all things, a sound,
courageous, reliable Democrat, one who
will carry out the policy of the party
should he succeed to the presidency.
There is no other sensible view to take
of the matter. Usually the vice presi-
dency la thrown as a son to a disan-
l-oiuted faction without any particular
regard to his fitness even for that of-
Cce. to say nothing of the more exalted
one. Tyler. Fillmore, Johnson and Ar
thur were all selected In that way, and
the world knows or ou?ht to know the
result.
The truth is that so Important is the
vice presidential office in its potentiali
ties that the vice presidential candi
date should be selected before the head
of the ticket, In that way and that
way alone would the best result be
obtained.
Aa tc rim am.
One of the very best things done by
the Democrats of the senate was to
compel the rejection of the nomination
of William D. Bynum for cne of the
appralserships in the New York cus
tom house, a life position, salary $7,500
I-er annum. The law under which the
nomination was made provides that a
certain number of appraisers shall bo
of, one party and a certain number
shall be of the other party. If Mr. Mc
Klnley had nominated Bynum as a Re
publican, nobody would have objected
seriously, for Democrats, do not hate
Bynum. They simply despise him. But
when'Mr.'McKinley nominated Bynum ;
as & Democrat to a position given by
law to Democrats he did the most dis
reputable thing I ever heard of his do
ing. He knew that Bynum did all in
his power to elect him In 1896 and that
In 1898 Bynum prowled around' over
the country' making speeches inclose"
congressional districts ' against, the 1
Democratic' nominees and in support of
the Republican nominees. . For; exam-!
pie, up In Iowa he stumped for Colonel
Ilepburn.and Major Lacey, who are
rantankerous radical Republicans. Iq
deed it took several orations from both
William D. Bynum and William -Mc-Kinley
to pull through that pair of con
splcuous thick and thin McHannaites.
Yet they both had the colossal cheek to
certify or testify that in their dictrlcts
Bynum spoke in his character of Dem
ocrat and was always introduced as a
Democrat. Of course he was and why?
In order that he might be able In his
role of Democratic decoy duck, which
he was . hired to play, to inveigle
some mutton headed Democrat into
voting for Hepburn or Lacey. Had he
appeared In his true character of a Re-
j publican and a Republican for re.ve
j nue at that he would not have fooled
j even one stupid Democrat and there
fore would have been of no service to
the slick colonel and the sly major. To
Senator James K. Jones is due the hon
or of organizing the fight which kept
Bynum from the public crib and land
ed him outside the breastworks. So
goodby, Mr. Bynum!
What Miffbt Have Been.
I am reminded forcibly at this mo
ment of the wisdom of the old saw
which says, "Don't whistle till you get
out of the woods," for the Ink was
scarcely dry, on the foregoing portion
of this letter touching Mr. Bynum until
I learned that the president has ap-
pointed or is about to appoint Bynum
to the vacancy on the codifying com
mission in place of Judge David
Browning Culberson of Texas, who re
cently departed this life. (I don't be-'
grudge Bynum the S5,000 salary. If he
is appointed as a Republican, which he
Is, all well and good, but if he is ap
pointed as a Democrat, which he is not,
I hope Democratic senators will pre
vent his confirmation.
It is pitiful to think of what Bynum
Is, a suppliant for the crumbs falling
from his Republican master's table,
and of what he might have been, the
proud and beloved leader of the Indi
ana Democracy, the successor in the
hearts of the Hoosiers of Thomas A.
Hendricks, the Philip Sidney of the
American Democracy.
What the people of Indiana think of
Governor Mount I do not know. He
may be to the taste of the Hoosier Re
publicans as the old saying hath it, "De
gustibus non est disputandum," which
being translated-means,-: "There is no
disputing about taste's; -but he can rest
assured that honest men everywhere,
without regard. to . political affiliations,
believe that he aas utterly disgraced
the high position which he holds and
; earned the unspeakable contempt of all
! decent people by refusing a requisition
! from Governor Beckham of Kentucky
to deliver tup ex:Governor Taylor of
Kentucky to answer to an indictment
as an accessory to the assassination of
Governor William Goebel. That Beck
bam is governor no man can doubt.
The supreme court of Kentucky so de
cided, two Republican Judges concur
ring in the decision. The supreme
court.of the United States so decided,
and there are only three Democrats
among the nine judges of that high tri
bunal! A Murderer Shielded.
Yet this man Mount is so keen to
shield an accessory to the foulest mur
der committed In the last ten years re
fuses a requisition because the crimi
nal happens to be a Republican. It Is
! what a miserable figure Taylor cuts!
A fugitive from justice in that state of
which he was secretary of state for
j four years and governor de facto sever-
al months. If he is innocent, why don't
he go home and demonstrate it? The
courts are open. The people of Ken
tucky love fair dealing and will see to
it that he gets a fair trial. Able and
fearless and upright judges are on the
bench. Yet he skulks in Indiana, afraid
to poke his dishonored head within the
confines of his native state. I did not
believe that Kentucky ever nurtured
such a shameless poltroon as that. He
actually falls below the low level of
the carpetbaggers and scalawags of
the southern states during reconstruc
tion days. Ex-Governor Moses of South
Carolina was indicted for grand lar
ceny, but he had manhood enough to
stand trial. lie was convicted and
served a term in the penitentiary of
South Carolina and another term In
I the penitentiary of Massachusetts for
another larcenv. Another ex-eoveVnor
j of South Carolina, also a Republican,
was indicted for murder or manslaugh-
ter. He stood trial and was acauitted.
Ex-Governor Henry C. Warmouth of
Louisiana also killed a man, stood trial
and was acquitted, but this poor crea
ture Taylor, who was the beneficiary
of Goebel's assassination and who is
Indicted as an accessory to it, hides in
Indiana and leaves the ignorant moun
taineers who did the deed for his be
hoof and as it appears with his knowl
edge and assistance to their ignomini
ous fate. But Kentucklans will have
more respect for the dead carcasses of
his obscure and loyal tools dangling
from the gallows tree than for Taylor
hiding in Indiana.

Hail. Insurance
The season for farmers to insure
their crops is" now well begun and as
there are several new Hail Companies
started un this year - the field is full
of agents from the several companies,
and it is well 'that every farmer knows
which company he insures in.
We are in a position to know of the
condition of the several companies and
will say that THE UNITED MUTUAL,
HAIL ASSOCI ,TION of Lincoln be
gan the season vith three thousand
members In good, standing and there
is no question about their five year
policies being good as some of the
agents for other companies are now ad
vertising over the country that the pol
icies for a five-year period is not good
but there is no more reason why a hail
policy cannot be written on a five year
period than a fire policy can, so that
the arguments: put np by these agents
that a five year policy is no good is
absolutely without ' foundation.
The old State Mutual Hail Insurance
Association of Iowa writes nothing but
five year poltciesend is the oldest Hail
Company in the United States and paid
in itSithird year(. of existence $287,000
in losses an the laws of Iowa in re
gard to the length of time a policy
or, membership may be written are
identically tnj&r"same as our Laws of
Nebraska so 'that what., thesej agents
say Jifregard to not being able to col
lect from members and pay losses on
five year policies- is-absolutely false,
and we believe is done with a selfish
motive for the purpose of getting the
uninformed farmers to insure in his
company.
The United Mutal Hall Insurance
Association paid more for hail losses
during the season of 1899 than has
ever been paid for hail losses in the
history of the state of Nebraska, and
they are now writing more nail insur
ance alone than all the other Hail In
surance Companies in the state com
bined, and they are the only com
pany in the state that confines its
business strictly to the eariern part
of the state. If their is no agent in
your locality, write the Home Office for
blanks and particulars, Rooms 315 and

Not a Candidate
Mr. H. 31. Ma the w, one of the fore-
mostpopulist attorneys in the state who
has beea frequently and favorably men
tioned fp'ithe nomination for attorney
genexalil. written the "'following loyal
and patriotic Tetter withdrawing. Such
unselfish devotion to success should be
remembered and awarded in the future.
To the Editor Times Independent
In your issue f ot.the 7th of . June you
said that Iaso( a.candidate for the fu
sion nomination foar attorney-general on
the fusion ticket v this fall. It is . true
that my name has been mentioned in
this connection by the ; Nebraska Inde
pendent and other reform papers in the
state and it is also true that many of
my friends in this and other counties
have spoken to me on -the subject but
notwithstanding that I greatly appre
ciate the honor "yourself and others
would do me, yet at this time, it is my
opinion that the office should go to a
democrat. , .
The present incumbent, Mr. C. J.
Smyth has so carried on the duties of
the office as to merit and receive the full
est endorsement at the hands of the fu
sionists and the approval of the unpreju
diced bar of the state, regardless of
party. The democrats therefore natur
ally expect to name his successor and in
view of the tremendous importance of
the coming election to every man,
woman and child in this republic noth
ing should be done to create friction in
the fusion ranks but they should move
firm and , together with but one. aim, to
maintain the constitution of the fathers
of this country, to overthrow the cor
rupt hordes that place the dollar above
the man and to substitute for the vacil-.
lating un-American policy of William
McKinley, the steadfast incorruptibility
of William Jennings Bryan.
To do this we must all pull together
and allow no personal ambitions to turn
us aside from victory. Let us see to it
that in state and county, the most loyal,
the most capable and the truest be nom
inated to lead the campaign the coming
fall. If there is weakness in office or in
a candidate we must prune it away that
our success at the polls may be sure and
that we may feel secure after the elec
tion is won, but in this case we can not
complain of the manner in which the
democrats have administered the office
in the past and justice demands that
they retain it, as tney wish to ao.
In view of the above, with gratitude
to yourself and others for kindly senti
ments expressed, I am not a candidate
for the nomination for attorney general
this fall. - H. M. Mathew.
