Editor Independent: Is all lost?
No, I hope not. and I think as I hope.
A foil and careful survey of the situa
tion and the constituent elements of
that situation reveal some valuable
j things In our favor.
I First The enemy is emboldened and
j will be reckless If the usual result fol
lows their present triumph. Sensible
men In the republican party Fee this
danger, and are advising caution; but
Iklr. I- 1 4 1 n it .-.

advise will be heeded. Haana and the
ere u in; eauuie, am iuejr
I know nothine. and care nothine for a
I prudent course or policy. What the
slave power slid after the election of
Buchanan in li6 is nearly sure to bo
repeated now by the corporations, and
especially by the money lords. Greed
knows nothing about prudence, and the
lust of power p.nd gain never stop un-
til they strike the rock and go to the
bottom. So we may expect defiance.
arrogance, insult and oppression of
lalor. and a reckless exposure of them-
seivea to ail me ourning sliarts or
iruia, ana justice. An enemy tnus ex
pored Is doomed sooner or later. In
H60 the lust of power and preed of
rain brought secession and the war.
This is the same thing with another
name and it is yet too coon to say just
wben or wber, or how It will end.
Second Our reserve force is rot yet
ascertained. When the Issue between
capital ana labor taKes its nnai snape,
nd tbe issue ia made palpable and
plain to all. so all can see it. tbere will
be some astonishing revelations of
character, as a result of forming the
lines of battle Many who voted for
Bryan will be with the enemy, just as
some thousands who voted for Douglas
in were for Jeff Davis on the final
round-up Many other thousands who
voted for McKlnley will be with the
country and for the Declaration of In
dependence in the final contest. It is
too soon to decide the question of
numbers on either side. But this is
the actual condition or millions of
voters wtwe Inner heart has not yet
beta touched, and will not make the
final decision until It is touched. As
It and there Is not a little danger that
he will. These are tilings which call
out the voter's Heart, and here is the
place to look for our reserve force.
Some millions voted for him without
dreaming of danger to the country.
Further on when they see there was
danger and real danger, too, their
hearts will speak, and the will leave
the ranks where they have foolishly
and blindly helped the wrong into
power. There is no room for gloomy
forebodings if this kind of men are
there in large numbers as we hope
they are. and believe they are.
Third We are somewhat stunned
by thfe blow, but not conquered at all.
Our weak points are fully revealed.
The lines will be reformed and mis
takes corrected. We hope that some
how the faction feature can be re
moved. All men of sense know that
factions can kill any caure and ruin
any country's past. present or future for
that matter. Old names may have to
be removed and new ones found, and
probably will be. Party spirit in
church or rtate is no crown of glory
to any one. But lovs of truth and de
votion to principle is good enough for
angels. It is cowardly to weaken here
as matters now stand, and it is tren -son
to flee from the foe. Die we may
in the fight. Be it so. for we can find
no better place or better way to dia
than falling fate to the foe on the field.
So far Our Heavenly Father has saved
New Zealand, Australia and Switzer
land from the maw of the beast that
preys upon labor and multiplies pover
ty. They will give us their prayers
and sympathy in our struggle. God
the Father is with us, and will be still
If we are brave, true men.
Whlttler was right and his words
are so yet:
TcI on. tbou canst not fall.
Soon or late thou shalt succeed;
And If denied the victor's crown
Thou shalt receive ihe toiler's
I see the possibility of being over-
hopeful toe sanguine for the facts to
justify. But I went through the long,
dark storm of the slavery struggle and
saw my country saved, and the reader
can pardon me If I write better than
the facts appear. I am not a bit blind
to the corrupt use of millions of mon
ey, and other corruptions much like It.
It is a terrible shame to the country,
and no trifle. The Pretorian guard

Loup City, Dec, 1900.
Full nineteen hundred years, and yet
Behold how Christians Christ forget
Outside of churches! Where, I pray,
Do men show brotherhood today?
In social life? See class with class
Contending each to each surpass,
And hear their biting words of scorn
For one (like Thee) more humbly born
Then look in business circles there
Is conflict In the very air.
Beneath fair smiles hate hides lt3
There strong men knock the weaker
And Much goes riding over Less,
And this is what we call success.
And then the armies! God what means
This conquest of the Philippines?
This Boer and Briton slaughter and
This raid upon far China's land?
It means that forms have not sufficed
To teach mankind the law of Christ.
It means the church has failed to be
A guide to high humanity.
It means the great and growing neea
Of something better than a creed
To lift the human race above
The mire of greed. Christ's law was
To live for universal good,
To make the world one brotherhood.
This was the purpose and the scope
Of all His teachings; yet we grope
Through war and strife, and gloom
Now, after nineteen hundred years.
And yet I question not, nor doubt
But that God's will is working out
A purpose, glorious and great,
And so I trust, and hope, and wait
Until love's banner be unfurled
To civilize the Christian world.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
Why Dietrich Only?
Editor Independent: There seems
to be a demand coming up from var
ious parts of the state to make Diet
rich the contended governor-elect
amenable to the law. This is as it
should be, but why Dietrich and no
others? Is he the only criminal vio
later of the election laws of the state?
1 8 his crime greater than that of oth
ers more dangerous to the suffrages of
the people, that he should be singled
out as the only one 'to be brought to
If there was a republican candidate
anywhere In the whole state In whose
Interests the law was not only vio
lated, but debauchery practiced, condi
tions must have been different in other
localities from what they were in this
section. The crime which is being
pressed against Dietrich giving of
money to the mid-road fraud is mild
in comparison to other crimes com
mitted against the purity and sacred
ness of the ballot box. If we would
protect the people's rights of honest
elections, make their honest mandate
at the ballot box supreme, we should
strike at the wholesale fraudulent vot
ing everywhere rampant in the state.
Not, however, by only ousting those
elected by such methods, but by bring
ing every culprit to justice. Is our
standard of morality and sense of Jus
tice, our Interest In fair and honest
elections only such that we will be
content with ousting Dietrich for a
few $25 heelers to the mid-road side
show-and let such men as W. S. Mor
lan, late candidate for congress, go
unchallenged when he and his pals
hunted up former residents of the
state, but now residents of other
states, and ship them into the state
with railroad passes and paid them for
their time; some of whom, according
to their own statements, had registered
in other states and were advised by
Morlan, as a lawyer, that they were
voters in this state? And Dietrich!
Yes, but to oust him and let all other
corruptionl&ts go free will never do.
To do this will be to place ourselves
where we will be suDJected to the
charge of fighting for the offices and
not for honest elections.
Had there been a semblance of hon
esty in the election there would have
been no question about these officers,
but it must be remembered that where
there Is one person directly inter
ested In these offices, there are thou
sands who care little about who gets
the pie, and who are intensely Inter
ested In honest elections.
To stop at .e ousting of Dietrich
would be to connive at frauds com
mitted In the Interests of other state
candidates, tho legislature and Mark
Hanna's trust tool, McKlnley. It
would be virtually admitting that it
Is not so much the debauching of our
elections that we would resent, as
that of getting the official pie that
goes with the governor's office. This
would be a crime against the temper
ance yawpers who voted for this beer
guzzler. An Indirect vindication of
the preachers who' preached for. and
voted for this Christianizing method of
shooting religion into the heathen
Catholics of the Orient.
Why howl at and pounce upon Diet
rich for making a few $25 deal3 with
the offscourings of humanity, and do
nothing libout the $200,000 sent into
the state by Hanna and used to de
bauch the election into a thing or bar
gain and sale?
Why make Dietrich amenable to law
and let 10,000 to 20,000 villamious il
legal voters and their promoters go
free? Bring those fellows to justice
too, if it requires the building of a
dozen new penitentiaries. It will be
the best investment that the state ever
made. If it Is not known where to
begin this good work, Furnas county

stay and the great lever of plutocracy
the trusts, imperialism and militar
ism, and if not checked will be the
final destruction of the people's liber
ties. With a fair and untrammeled
ballot the American people can be de
pended upon to protect and : preserve
their rights and liberties for all time.
But if corporation knaves of greed are
permitted to ship their deceived dupes
and purchasable voters from one state
to another, and vote them anywhere
where their votes are needed to carry
elections, our present form of govern
ment cannot survive any length of
time. If this damnable, vicious,
wholesale debauchery Is to continue
the holding of elections had just as
well be done away with, and not only
the legitimate expense of such elec
tions saved to the taxpayers, but also
the millions of dollars of which the
people are robbed by trust magnates
and used by them as election corrup
tion funds. This kind of thing is not
new to the people of the southwestern
part of the state. The people's grand

in 1S95 we had to meet not this same
