TYRANNY AND OPPRESSION

Once in a great while a hereditary
tendency shows its influence amog
tin' crazed followers of McKinley.
Many of them cava had aactore who
fecght and died for liberty aud the old
love of freedom for all men suddenly
breaks out in a fierce protest against
thi adoption of the theories of Gejrge

ti-e bouse t he other t!ay when Hepburn
of Iowa astonished -his fellow members
by a reversion to the ideas formerly
entertained by the republican party.
It was like a thunder clap from a
"Why,- Mr. Hepburn asked, "was
the navy department 8,000 men short
of its complement? Why ha i there
been 4,000 desertions from the army?
Because the men were Amer'can citi
zens compelled to serve under men
'schooled in tyranny and oppression '
These oncers," Mr. Hepburn said,

pocket a list of twenty-five vessels of
the United States cast away upon the
rocks or shoals by incompetent oflicers
since the close of the civil war. In

severest punishment inflicted 'as sus

loses his ship to commit su'.cids. Here,
when a ship is cast away and becomes
a total loss, nothing is done. I want
to see a fixed and certain punishment

of hazing are unfit to command troops

SUGAR TRUST ORDERS
McKlatley Meat Obay Them If It Make mn
Emtmr of a Nation That Ha Bb
Oar Friend tor a Hundred
Suppose we consider for a moment
just what is this friendship with Rus
sia that Secretary Gage, at the com
mand of the sugar trust; has, so sum
marily ended and what it has meant
for the United States.
'' Russia was one of the first countries
to acknowledge with a friendly salu
tion the birth of the republic .
When the war . of 1812 was coming
on the test of Europe (except France)
cheerfuly hoped to see us obliterated
from the map- Russia, appalled by
the disproportionate strength of the
combatants, tried to avert the struggle.
After the war was begun, fearing we
should be 5 crushed, Russia (made re
peated efforts to bring about peace.
Not a. slinking, cowardly, hypocritical
suggestion like John Hay's . in the
South African horror, but genuine,
whole-hearted intervention for peace. 1
When the civil war came on and the
blockade of the southern ports strained
our naval resources to the utmost lim
its it was Russia that gave the most
extraordinary evidence of friendship,
that one nation ever gave another in
the offer of assistance from her navy.
When England and Napoleon the
Little, as the war went on, busily
plotted and plotted, day after day, the
destruction of the republic in its hour
of distress, it was always Russia that
upset all their conspirings. "But
there' is the bear!" was always the in
surmountable obstacle. Nothing but
the steadfast friendship of Russia
saved us from the frightful calamity
of a foreign war on the top of the civil
war we were then waging.
From the Declaration of Indepen
dence to the present time there has
not been a single instance of an at
titude not perfectly friendly assumed
toward us by Russia. So late as last
autumn it was Russia, with France,
that consistently and persistently
stood by the demand of the United
States that the looting and slaughter
in China should cease.
This is the nation that now at the
behest of an illegal and- pirate corpora
tion we have attacked and insulted in
a way- beyond precedent.
We do not need the paltry revenues
Involved in Mr. Gage's duties. We
have not one single advantage in trade
or in any other way to reap anywhere
in the world from his action and we
have no reasbn with which to defend
what we have done except this:
A huge, lawless combination, hav
ing contributed heavily to Mr. McKin
ley's election, demands In return en
larged means to wring dollars out of
the public. ' .
That is the beginning and the end of
a ruling that has cancelled $30,000,000
of American trade, probably $7,000,
000 of which belongs to the state of
Illinois. " : ;
This is the way the case stands. How
do you like it! Chicago American.
WHACKING THE MULLET HEADS
A Country Editor Onco In a Whlla Takes
a Shot at the Critters in His Own
Some of the chaps who whooped it
up for Mark Hanna and McKinley last
fall find out that they don't like trusts
and imperialism as well as they
thought they would. As they can't
think and as they never will attend 9
reform meeting in a state of mind to
understand the truth, the only way to
bring them to their senses is to whack
their heads up against a few disagree
able experiences. The Nuckols County
Sun publishes the following:
"A farmers' club was organized at
the Center school house Tuesday of
last week. The object is to purchase
the necessary family supplies from the
large department stores of Chicago
and New York." From our Blaine
Of course the above information will
be exasperating to the local retail
merchant. The man, or set of men,
who send money abroad for the pur
chase of merchandise, even though it
may be procured at a less cost, has al
ways been characterized in bitter
terras by the retail merchant.
We started out to suggest to the lo
cal merchant that he keep his nether
garments in tact. There are several
reasons why he should do so aside
from making a holy show of himself.
The department store is an exemplifi
cation of wealth centered in the hands
of one person or of but a few. For
that reason they buy goods much
cheaper and for the same reason are
albe to secure special low transporta
tion rates for their goods. They then
distribute them at a less cost than the
local merchant, and in the course of
time these department stores will suc
ceed in making the retail business so
unprofitable that local dealers will be
a thing of the past.
This accumulation of all business
and commerce into the hands of a few
is, according to authority no less emi
nent than Mark Hanna, a sequence
of modern times a scientific evolu
tion, and when a majority of the local
merchants heard this high-sounding
verbiage they seemed to regard it as
something intended for their especial
advantage and immediately threw up
their hats and shouted for Mark and
Mack in the late campaign.
But a few lessons, such as the farm
ers in Blaine precinct are preparing to
give, may serve to eventually cut the
eye teeth of some retail merchants who
are now egotistically wise concerning
Digging a Ditch
Editor Independent: In The Inde
pendent of January 27, 1898, you pub
lished the following problem: Two
men, A and B, agree to dig a ditch 200
rods in length for which C agrees to
pay them $400 or $2 per rod. A part
of the ditch was stony; A says to B, I
will dig the stony part for $2.25 per
rod and you dig the dirt part for $1.75
per rod. Each received $200. How far
did each dig?
If it was solved I don't remember
having seen It, and would wish to see
it if you would kindly publish it again.
The problem was referred to- the
Chess Editor a.nd reported as follows;
It is evident that B did not earn his
$200 by digging wholly in the "dirt"
part of the ditch, because that would
require 114 2-7 rods at fl.75 to give him
his $200, leaving &5 5-7 rods for A,
which, at the $2.25 rate, would give
him only $192.66 for his share. Hence,
A must have had "stony" ditch for all
of his task, Which would require 88 8-9
Now, this leaves 111 1-9 rods, part
"dirt," part "stony" for B to dig. B
gets $200 for digging this 111 1-9 rods,
or an average of $1.80 per rod, an ad
vance of 5 cents over the "dirt" price.
This , would mean $5.55 5-9 for the
whole ill 1-9 rods. Now. the "stony"
price is 50 cents higher than the "dirt"
price. Divide $5.55 5-9 by .50 and you
have 11 1-9 rods which must have been
stony and for digging which B received
$2.25 per rod, or $25; and his 100 rods
at $1.75 makes up B's $200, It follows
that there were 100 rods each of stony
and dirt ditch. y-
THAT AGUINALDO BRIBE
At Example of the Contemptible and Con
tinuous Lying of th Imperialist
,' f Press.
.The editor of the Lincoln German
Free Press has a few words to say in
the Chicago Record to the imperialistic
vHartr that are very much to the point.
His article was as follows:
To the Editor:- Is it necessary to
repeat to a man like Mr, Curtis the tes
timony of our own officials tnat Aguin
aldo was not bribed? Mr. Wildman,
consul general of the United States at
Hong Kong, writes to J. B. Moore,
acting secretary of state, on July 18,
18o: "There has been a systematic
attempt to blacken the name of Aguin
aldo and his cabinet on account of the
questionable terms of their surrender
to Spanish forces a year ago tViS
month. It has been said that they sold
their country for gold, but this has
been conclusively disproved, not only
by their own statements, but by the
speech of the late Governor General
Rivera in the Spanish senate, June 11,
1898. He said that Agulnaldo under
took to submit if the Spanish goyern
ment would give a certain sum to the
widows and orphans of the insurgents.
He then admits that only a tenth part
of this sum was ever given to Aguln
aldo, and that the other promises made
he did not find expedient to keep. I
was in Hong Kong September, 1897,
when Aguinaldo and his leaders ar
rived under contract with the Spanish
government. They waited until the
1st of November for the payment of
the promised money and the fulfill
ment of the promised reforms. Only
$400,000 Mexican was ever placed to
their credit in the banks. (Senate
document 62, pages 337 and 338.)
United States Consul -Williams at
Manila writes to William R. Day, sec
retary of state, on May 24, 1898: "To
day Ihav executed, a power of at
torney whereby General Aguinaldo re
leases to his attorneys in fact $400,000
now in bank in Hong Kong, so that
money therefrom . can pay for 3,000
stand; of arms bought there and ex
pected here tomorrow." (Senate docu
ment 62, page 328,)
F.V. Greene major general United
States volunteers, says: "No steps
have, -been taken to introduce the re
forms, more than 2,000 insurgents, who
had been deported to Fernando Po
and other places are still in confine
ment, and Aguinaldo is now using the
money to carry on the operations of
the present insurrection." (Senate
document 62, page 421.)
All these quotations from our own
officials show that Aguinaldo invested
the "bribe" in arms to fight for the
liberation of his people. I think that
we could afford to be generous and
truthful even to our enemies. But
this is the kind of "information"
which is given by our administration
writers on all questions pertaining to
the Philippine war.
Lincoln, Neb., Feb. 18.
What They Meant
The authors of the Declaration of
Independence meant it to be--as,
thank God, it is now proving itself
a stumbling-block to those who in af
ter times might seek to turn a free
people back into the hateful paths of
despotism. They knew the proneness
of prosperity to breed tyrants, and
they meant when such should reap
pear in this fair land and commence
their vocation they should find left,
at least one hard nut to crack,-Abra-ham
There were perhaps never two sen
tences so weighted with prophesy and
profound wisdom as is contained in
the above quotation from Lincoln. To
day there is a fierce battle being waged
in the United States senate, fought
with the keenest logic and all the wea
pons of statesmanship, but the sum
and substance of all the speeches can
be found in the above short paragraph.
The "effort to turn a free people back
into the hateful paths of despotism"
is again being made and even with
more persistence than at the time
when Lincoln made this time-enduring
protest. They "have commenced their
vocation' but they have in these
words of the great lover of mankind
another "stumbling block" and an
other "nut to crack," a nut that is very
hard to crack, because this "breed of
tyrants" claims to enslave mankind in
the name of Lincoln.
That Sugar Trust Order ;
The New York Evening Post quotes
W. L. Saunders, vice president of the
Ingersoll-Sergeant Drill company, as
saying of Secretary Gage's action in
imposing countervailing duties on
Russian sugar, which has resulted in
Russia retaliating by increased duty
on many of American exports to that
country: "It will mean a direct loss to
American exporters of $10,000,000 a
year, and all because of the paltry su
gar importation from Russia, which
in 1900 amounted to only $22,790. Sec
retary Gage has made the mistake of
his life in this decision, and if he has
been influenced in reaching it by the
claims of the sugar trust I predict that
it will be but the beginning of a con
certed attack, not only on the trusts,
but on the whole principle of the Am
erican protective tariff. His action is
all the more unpardonable in that he
has-acted with the full knowledge of
the injurious results that would fol
low, and yet with no actual knowledge
that Russia was paying a bounty of 4
cents a pound on sugar which brought
it Into competition with the product
of the trust in this country." -
SOD HOUSE ECONOMIST
How the Republican Party After Advo
eating Repudiation for f any Tears
Tried to Escape by a Tenich-
' oallty. x
The Independent has pointed out a
thousand times that every national
bond and obligation was . payable in
silver by the terms of the written con
tract and that the effort to make them
navable in cold was a violation of the
contract, to do which congress must
pass an ex post facto law in direct vio
lation of the constitution. The repub
lican party press always" denied this
and undertook to make an argument
which was always so hazy that it was
imnossihlft to make anv direct answer
to their gibberish. In the testimony
before the committee ' on coinage,
weights and measures. Secretary Gage
made a most astonishing admission.
He gives direct evidence in support
of the charge that The Independent
has so often made. He says that a law
passed to make the national bonds
payabie in gold would be a violation
of the written contract and an ex post
facto law. Then he tells how the re
publican party endeavored to accom
plish the same end without making a
record that might be appealed to under
circumstances that would be very era
harassing to the. plutocrats. Mr. Gage's
statement upon that subject is without
equivocation and is as follows:
"Obiec.ttnn la made to the new law
that it does not make the bonds of the
United States redeemable in gold. That
is true in a narrow sense. The new
law as finally enacted does not change
the contract between the government
and the holder of the bond, which was
an agreement to nav coin. What 13
apparently desired by Prof. Laughlin,
and what was embodied in the nouse
bill, was the proposition that the gov
ernment bv act of congress should
change the terms of the contract, al
though not its substance, from a coin
to a eold contract. I think that upon
many grounds the conference commit
tee acted wisely in refusing to make
this chance. It establishes a danger
ous precedent to enact a retractive law.
If the fifty-sixth congress can change
a coin contract into a gold contract,
not even leaving the option to the
bondholder to take silver if he pre
fers it. what would prevent the fifty-
seventh congress, if it containea a
Bryan majority, from changing the
gold contract embodied in the new 2
per cent bonds to a silver contract? In
other words, I think it is good public
nolicv not to chanee the terms of a
contract by mandate of law. Even if
the avowed purpose is to benefit both
of parties, the same purpose might be
avowed for verv objectionable legisla-.
tion at some future time. For those
who nrefer a eold bond congress pro-.
vlded the means of obtaining it by of
fering the new 2 per cent bonds upon
terms of conversion approaching the
market value of the old Donas.
It will be seen that in that state
ment Secretary Gage acknowledges
that the proposition advocated by Prof.
Laughlin and the whole repuoncan
rtartv was to pass a retroactive or ex
post facto law and to change by act of
congress a written contract, Dotn dc
int a clear violation of the constitu
tion and verging closely upon an
archy. Then be tells how the party
undertook to avoid the shame and dan
ger of such action. The bonds that
were payable by contract in silver and
which had tnat contract printed on the
face of every one of them, were refund-
ed into bonds specincaiiy payame in
gold. The deed has been done, but
Prof. Laughlin and the whole repub
lican rtartv stands convicted of sun-
porting a proposition to violate con
tracts and pass ex post facto laws.
' - a. T. 11.
That record nas Deen maae. coming
can wipe it out. - -
Ponulism stands forth in brighter
colors every day. There Is no record
of that sort that can be brought up
against it. It never advocated the vio
lation of contracts. When Prof.
Laughlin was denouncing us as fan
atics and lunatics we stood for what
was lawful, honest and right, while bv
was advocating the most pernicious
and dangerous doctrines ooctrines
that were a threat against the stability
of eovernment and the transaction of
all business. The sod house pop econ
omist stands out in a glorious con
trAst to this nlutocratic nrofessor of
the Rockefeller university. When his
tory is written the sod house econo
mist will sret his lust aDDreciation. As
far as The Independent is concerned it
says: Give us a sod house and an
honest man in preference to a hun
dred million dollar university and a
plutocratic professor every time.
There are Many Who are Not Only No
torious and Efficient, but Loud
Heads the List.
The habit of passing bills upon hon
or as it has been called in congress
will have to be dispensed with. It 13
the custom to ask the chairman of a
committee who is pushing a bill quea
tiona concerning its provisions atid its
effect when passed. It has alwaj s been
the custom to rely implicitly upon the
statements made on the floor of the
house and member3 vote accordingly,
for it is absolutely impossible for con
gressmen to know, the contents of ev
ery bill that is offered. Hereafter
members will likely ask for come cor
roborative evidence before they will
believe what republican congressmen
say on such occasions. Congressman
Loud .of California has been working
like a beaver in the interest of the ex
press companies for several years.
Time and again his bills making a
change in the postal laws have been
defeated by decisive majorities. - A few
days ago he came near effecting his
purpose by clean, straight cut lying on
the floor of the house. He introduced
a bill under the claim that it was only
a "codification of the postal laws, as
they at present existed." The "codi
fication" bill was of course a long one,
containing, in fact, 221 pages, and it
passed the house without being sub
jected to careful scrutiny, because Mr.
Loud stated that it made the fewest
possible changes in the existing law,
and no change whatever in the "law
relating to second-class mail matter."
The bill went to the senate, and might
quickly have passed that body upou
the same understanding had not Mr.
James L, 'Cowles and Mr. Edmund F.
Merriam called the attention of a few
newspaper publishers to sections iq
ereasing the rates upon weekly news-1
papers published in cities having let-!
If the bill had passed upon this IW
told by Loud on the floor of the house.
The Independent would have had to
put a one-cent stamp on every one of
its numbers delivered in the city
Monthly periodicals would have had
to put on from two to four cents in
stamps. In the large cities this would
have amounted to hundreds of thou
sands of dollars. Then in would have"
come the express companies and mad4
an offer to deliver them at a fraction
less than the ; government would
Charge. To cover this extra charge, the.
weeklies and monthlies would have'
had to raise the price of subscription
to city subscribers whether they put
on stamps or paid the express compa
nies for delivering them. The Inde
pendent would have been a dollar a
year to all-subscribers except those
living in the city and to them an ad
ditional charge would have to be made
of fifty-two cents a year.
That is what results from electing
corporation tools to represent the peo
ple In congress. The fees that the cor
porations pay them i are very often
many times the amount of the salaries
that they receive from the govern
ment.. There are scores of such men
in congress. They appear before the
people as patriots and talk about the
flag and this great and glorious na
tion. Then the mullet heads are per
fectly satisfied. They leave their
work, march in processions, carry
greasy torches and shout themselve3
hoarse trying to elect them. That is
the way the mullet heads have of do
ing things and asi they are in a major
ity the rest of un must submit.
This discovery ;o( the bare-faced ly
ing Of Congressman Loud of course
killed the bill. But if there was any
sense of hopor -pr, dignity left In the
house, th9 '; mattery would not be al
lowed to stop there. Loud should bo
ignominiously. expelled as a warning

an abraded surface and absorbed into
the blood and produces the condition
known as vaccinia. So, then,. vaccina
tion affords protection from smallpox
by producing in t Be body a constitu
tional condition which is similar in
some respects to the symptoms of
smallpox itself hut pf a character so
mild as to be utterly and entirely
harmless, and produces such changes
as to render the development of the
disease in a virulent and fatal form &n
Of all diseases smallpox Is probably
the most violently contagious, but un
like other terrible diseases it is not
content with a fatal termination in
many cases, but on those It spares it
leaves forever Us ineffaceable marks
and warnings Ho others, a warning
that speaks louder than words, a cau
tion po strong that' It ought to do more
in' favor of vaccination than all the
words ever written or snokon.
The mortality from smallpox In 4,000
cases, collected in nis own practice by
Dr, Welch, was 60 per cent of the per
sons not vaccinated. The statistics of
Mr. Mason dutlng a continuous ser
vice o( thirty years in the smallpox
hospital of London, show in 15,000
cases a mortality of 40 per cent, while
among those who had been vaccinated
at some time during life the death
rate was only 6 per cent. During the
Franco-Prussian war, when the Ger
man army was double the strength of
the French,, and in which vaccination
was obligatoriy, onjy 283 died from this
disease, while amongr the French, vac
cination not being enforced, the death
record reached the enorttQ'is number
of 23,000. ,
The dangers of Vaccination? "when
properly and cleanly done by a collir
petent-physician, are nil. The un
toward results that are reported to fol
low vaccinations are due in great
measure to unclean habits of the vac
cinator or dirty fingers or clothing
coming in contact "with the abraded
point of inoculation. In the hands
ofa competent, surgically clean phy
sician there is no danger in vaccina
tion, ' -
