The Chicago Record claims to be an Independent paper-and non-partisan. It keeps in Washington as its special correspondent W., E. Curtis and gives to his matter the most prominent place in every issue. The Record's atten tion has been frequently called to the infamous falsehoods to which it con stantly gires circulation through the correspondence of this man. The at tention of the readers of this paper is called to a communication signed by three congressmen from this state de nouncing the statements made by the said W. E. Curtis in regard to Senator Allen as Infamous and odious false hoods. - While the Record continues to print the falsehoods of this man. giving them as it does the most con spicuous position in every issue,: it makes itself sponsor for a mass of falsehood that is a disgrace to Ameri can Journalism. If it will do that an one instance, it will do it in others and The Independent warns all it a readers that the Chicago Record is un believable in any statement that it makes, and sensible men will pay no more attention to what, it says than they would to the fictitious "Arizona Kicker." The evil that this paper is doing by keeping the said Curtis in Washington and printing his false hoods, which are continuous. Is ' in calculable. It makes itself a moral leper and spreads the leprosy of false hood wherever it circulates. '. " It should be shunned as every moral leper should be shunned. It should be handled with a pair of tongues. It should cot be allowed to come in con tact with anything that is honest lest its foulness should contaminate. It is i not within the scope of probability tfcat the Record will make any effort to deny this malicious lie. It will "keep W. E. Curtis at Washington and print more of his lies from day to day, therefore it is necessary to give warn ing to the people concerning the char acter of the Chicago Record.

The Standard Oil trust leased all the land in sight. ' has i A glance at those figures will show how much truth there is in the state ment that trusts reduce the cost of manufactured products to the consum er. The capitalization of the whole group had been watered to an enor mous extent before the universal steel trust- was formed. Having placed all of them under one control, the first thing that is done is to increase the capitalization again, this time to the amount of $316,229,800. The price of steel must now be raised again so as to pay interest . on, this . additional stock, besides upon the stock of the original companies, all of which had been watered to more than a hundred per cent.. . That is the way trusts reduce-the cost of products to the con sumer. That kind of reduction is the very idea of their being. If it were not for that, there would be no trusts. The idea of having the privilege - of paying twice as much for their..goods as the same goods are sold to foreign ers, or interest on stock that has been watered four hundred per cent, so de lights the average republican that they will likely hold a ratification meeting over the organization of the billion dollar steel-trust, especially since the senate has kicked all anti-trust bills clear off the capitol grounds. ' The fact that police and police courts even in the smaller cities of the west are just as corrupt as those of the larger cities of the east ; is becoming generally known.. Last, week the school board of Omaha brought charges against the police of that city, in which they claim that the police' are constantly collecting fines from houses of prostitution, and gambling dens which they do not turn over... Every body knows that they collect these fines, but every member of this school board did his best to elect the present Omaha city government, -and - at the next . election they will jio the same thing. Of the two, the school board are greater villains than the police. They would work night and day to prevent the turning out of the government headed by. a known, embezzler and thej election or nonest men. inai is me way the" republicans have of doing things.- - : - . - It is quite certain Hanna is not go ing to get his subsidy bill through this session. It is also quite certain that the corporations have killed the isthmus canal for a time anyway. The chief concern of our present leg islature seems to be how to raise the assessment, so as to raise the taxes and also to . increase the number of I office holders , and raise their salaries. If offices went begging at the present salaries it might be the thing to do, but there are a score of office-seekers for every office. A little economy would be better medicine. A young person should give' preference. either seat or standing room, to an old v person. Ladies should have the prefered advantage, age being equal.

Several of the great New York pa pers have been denouncing Senator Teller and others as enemies of their country because of the resolution de daring that Cuba was, and of right ought to be ' free and independent. Ttev say that the resolution was of no binding force because it was passed without deliberation in a moment of hysterical excitement caused by the breaking out of war. But they forget about another assembly of some im portance that met long after the war was over and that assembly by a unanimous vote declared and put on record the following; "Cuban Independence. To Cuba in dependence and self-government were assured in the same voice by vrhich war was declared, and to the letter this pledge shall be performed." That is what the republican national convention did. Was it suffering from hysterical excitement when it made that solemn pledge? Isn't it rather to be supposed that these editors who write in that strain have received or ders from the power that controls the press and that they themselves have been thrown into hysterics? Nothing short of hysterics can account for the wild writing that they do. In the old days when the republicans rah things to suit themselves 'in this state and we had stone "plugged to size," and it took 144 tons of coal to keep the asylum warm during the month of August, there were also fre quent mutinies in the penitentiary. The old way of doing things seem to be-revived. Last week it w.as reported that a mutiny was only prevented by a lucky accident. In one of the cells a revolver was found and a lot of am munition. Also keys that would open nearly all the cell doors and the out side, door. After that there was talk of dark cells and all those things with which we were so familiar in the good old days of republican rule. While the penitentiary was under the care of Warden Leidigh there were no mu tinies and when penalogists visited the institution they were always aston ished beyond measure when they looked over the book in which all the punishments were recorded. They could hardly believe their eyes. Lei digh always had perfect discipline, faithful work from the convicts, hard ly ever a punishment worse than cut ting off their tobacco, or a few days or their good time, ana there were no mutinies or thought of 'mutiny. Whether it was organizing an army, running a penitentiary or cutting down the expenses of the public institutions, the populist government was equally efficient. The terrible.disaster in San Fran cisco harbor whereby 130 persons lost their lives, among them Consul Wild- man and family and the editor of the American recently expelled, from the Philippine islands by order of General MacArthur because he . criticised -the action of the captain of ' the port of Manila in the collection of duties. The ship Rio Janerio had made a success ful voyage and , after, entering San Francisco harbor, was run on a rock and sank almost' immediately In very deep water. This disaster is the result of carelessness, but as the person re sponsible the captain, went down with the ship, there will . not be much said about it. Even a landsman knows that the bay of San Francisco, is full of rocks and what is still more dan gerous to careless navigators, swift and powerful currents which vary dur ing every hour of the day. This cap tain undertook to sail his ship into the harbor in a dense fog. . There was no necessity for haste. Yet he took the awful risk and his ship went to the bottom carrying with it 130 living souls. Gambling among children of public schools and among students of uni versities has been detected in several of our large cities. It takes on differ ent forms in different places, but al ways connected , with a low-down, cor rupt hole. In some instances they give prizes to the boy who buys the most beer or whisky. This is even worse j than straight gambling. In England the social entertainment among all classes is gambling with cards for money. v They generally limit the amount put up at any game for the evening and when church members or Americans exhibit conscientious scru ples against the gambling sin, they all j promise to give all they win above what they lose to the church. This ar- ! rangement - soft-soaps the religious conscience. Gambling for money there is as common as high-five for a goose egg or booby here. (We don't know what goose egg and booby mean.) The gambling sin is at the bottom of most of the thefts, forgeries and embezzle ments. A treasurer, cashier or clerk j will steal his employer poor before he thinks of restraining his covetousness, appetite. or lust. The ranks of the fallen are filled by starting the school children in the downward road. STAL SIS 6 IAM8 imported more black Percherons from Francs in 1900 than all importers of Nebraska.

The first reports were to the effect that Dewet had been caught be tween two swollen rivers by a super ior force and that his whole army had been broken up and his oxen and. sup plies captured, ne nimseit escaping across the river in a boat with a few followers. But the next day came word that he was attacking a town in Cape Colony and the British were hurrying forward reinforcements. Botha .had escaped from the force that was sent to capture tim and was making lots of trouble. It will be some time before the Boer side of the story will reach this country. It is stated that the company owning the line to which the Rio Janerio be longed has lost twenty steamers in the Pacific, most . of them by Just such carelessness as resulted in the sinking of this sliip. The United States navy has lost two magnificent warships In the Pacific during the last two years, and came very near losing the Ore gon. The mishap to the Oregon and the loss of the Charleston , were both the result of carelessness and the offi cers' in command,' if they had " be longed to any other government, would have been court-martialed and cash iered. The united States , navy is a close corporation as' .was pointed, out by a republican congressman the other day " " The officers stand by-each other and "the, guilty parties arenever puo- ished. .. , -.'f;.-,- ; Admiral Sampson has shown to the whole country what manner "of maft he is so that it can no longer be dis puted. When he sent that famous-telegram! saying that the squadron under his command had sunk all of Cervera's ships, when he was not in command at all and not even present at the fight, it disgusted the whole nation except Mc- Kinley and his cabinet. They were so pleased with it that they tried to force Sampson's promotion over the man who was in command and who did sink the ships. This last caper of his is in line with the character of a man who could send such a telegram. Con gress has at last provided that there may be promotions from the enlisted men in the navy who pass an examina tion and have proved themselves to be fully qualified to commission officers. One of the gunners who fought in the famous battle made application for a commission and Sampson wrote to the president saying that he noped that he, the president, would ignore the law and not make any such appointments. He declared that no matter how brave. intelligent and well qualified a war rant officer in the navy might be, It would never do to promote him to the position of a regular commissioned of ficer because he lacked the social re finement necessary to associate with the officers of the navy. Since the let ter was made public; Sampson has been denounced as an ass' and a snob on the floor of the senate. It is not at all probable that he will now be pro moted over Schley. . 4 HARDY'S COLUMN X TEES 23 j FUhTS & Ls-g "MAIL FBUITH. Jw Sbary Plarfs 53 Bcjt Sorts.

Ad&rmmi It is announced that the recent rail road consolidations will throw out of employment over enty-five thou sand employes, many of them holding high, positions in railroad circles. : ;arly all of these men, many of them past middle age, are left perfectly help less. Supposing that they had life po sitions they have lived up to their salaries. What w.il they do now? They are unfitted for other business. Poor fellows! A pop can't help plttylng them. Last fall they were out work- in for their own destruction and im agined that we who gave them warn ing of their coming fate were lunatics. What do they .think of a pop now? Wonder if some of them will turn pop themselves? One of them who had been drawing a salary of $4,000 a year was seen sitting in a hotel the other day. He looked very miserable, and remarkeu that he did not know what would become of him and his wife and children. If the people insist on hav ing trusts these sort of things must come along with them. There has been a noticeable change in the tone of the editorial writing in the great organs of the republican par ty during the last week, in regard to the "protective" policy. In some of these staunch defenders there is even attempts made to ridicule this holy of holies of republicanism. One or two of them openly declare that the re publican leaders intend to steal this issue from the democrats and make it one of the principal planks In their next platform. If they do. the seedy mullet head will be as enthusiastic a defender of free trade as he ever was of the interests of the tariff barons. Just call it republican doctrine and that will make it a sacred thing to him to be defended with his voice and his vote. The truth about the matter is about this: For years the subsidized press has been able to keep the people in ignorance of the fact that through the tariff Americans are made to pay about twice as much for their goods as the same goods are sold to foreigners. This fact is now becoming so gener ally known that it endangers the pros pects of any party that upholds it. In the ranks of the republican party there are some men who are not so afflicted with partisan insanity but that they can comprehend so plain a fact as that and If they should desert, it would make trouble for Mark Hanna. A billion dollar iron and steel cor poration, trust and monopoly; a bil lion dollar oil corporation, trust and monopoly; two or three billion dollar railroad corporations, trusts and mon opolies how can we better things and what is the remedy? To start with, nothing can be done until the people want something done and they will have to be pinched hard before they will break with their party. If Hanna should propose to tax all farm prod ucts as tobacco is now taxed republi cans would swallow it just as they are now swallowing the ship subsidy pro position. Removing the high .protec tive tariff on all trust goods will help a little. - It would at least enable the American consumer to obtain Ameri can goods as cheaply, as European and Asiatic consumers do. But the next i move would be to bring all the rest of the world into the American trust. Tne Standard Oil company has divided territory with Russia, neither sells oil in the other's territory. The Russians will not ship oil to America at any price. Oil was put on the free list by Bryan, when in congress, but it has done no good; the oil trust has stead ily grown. The only way out of the woods is for the government to start and iron and steel foundry and also an oil refinery. - Ten millions in an iron and steel plant somewhere on tne east shore of Lake Michigan, half way be- tween the coal and ore, run by the best help at the best wages, the product sold at a little abov. cost would knock the teeth out of the biggest trust. And if railroads could net be made to car ry as cheaply for government as for the trust the government could build her own railroads. Five millions in an oil refinery located somewhere be- tween Cleveland and Toledo, run in the same way, would have the same ef fect updn the oil trust.

JU.i.ADAU.JQLIET.llL The continual increase in the num ber of failures as well as the enormous liabilities of the firms going into bank ruptcy is attracting attention. Add ing to this tbe fact that the banks owe $30 for every $2 of cash they have on hand has had a tendency to ccrb the speculative eplrlt and , even Henry Clewa feels called upon to make some remarks upon the subject. Every man of common sense knows that this mod era South Sea bubble must burst some time and the wise ones seem to be starting ror cover. When it comes, the fierceness of the explosion will be felt most In the east.. The pops have so educated the people In the west that they will largely escape. The gold democrats of the east are still pushing Qlney as their candidate. Even the republican papers are forced to confess that Oln'ey is more of a re publican than a democrat. The fact is that Olney is just such a republican as Senator Hoar. There is . not a par ticle of difference in their political be liefs. The only thing in which thev differ from Mark Hanna and McKlnley Is on the question of imperialism. Both Olney and Hoar, living as they do in the shadow of Bunker Hill, cannot en tirely free themselves from the old revolutionary traditions, which at one time inspired all the people of this nation. .

Three good crops in Nebraska have given us a surplus and four good wars outside have given us good prices, but what has contributed most toward making good times is the increase ot legal tender money by coining silver and gold. Then money has been more plenty, on this side, by our exports ex ceeding our imports. The man or na tion who sells more than he buys has more money than he would have if he bought more than he sold. Then again the most rigid economy has been prac ticed the past six years. There is a stronger feeling against contracting debts among the older class who were pinched in the nineties. Since so many horses and mules have been tak en out of the Mississippi valley for the wars about the only farm product Is wheat that ranges below average price. The reason of this seems to be because of the new and extensive wheat fields opened the last ten years In South America and Russia. The Pa cific railroad in Russia opens up much more wheat land than the Pacific road did in this country. There is no cot ton or corn land in Russia, but mil lions of acres of wheat land yet un cultivated. The most of southern South Aiperica is wheat land. They are just now shipping to Europe a bountirui crop from the Argentine Republic They have no corn or cotton land ex cept in the northern part and in south ern fBrazil and there the area is lim ited! .": We again caution farmers to keep out of debt, for if the policy ot the millionaires and trusts are car ried out, we are going to see harder times In the next four years than we have ever seen before. wZ- ' Farm Seed "Minnesota Blue Stem" and "Early Fife" epring wheat.two earliest and best rariaties known.

Republican : candidates " a?e spending money very freely to get nominations to offices that pay very small salaries. After they get tbe nomination they will have to put up a lot more of money to get elected al though they have about a thousand majority in the city. Any man of com mon sense knows what that means. . It meana boodle. These poor fool? who turn out to primaries and spend time trying to elect their candidates may think that they don't pay the bill, but they do. Not one of them would listen to a proposition to have an honest city government administered for th? ben efit of the citizens instead of a f w office-holders and the , corporations. Why does" not the 'senate pass the house resolution submitting an amend ment to the several legislatures, al lowing the people to elect senators? The only reason given is the million aires would not be able to buy their office of the people with money as they do now of legislatures. The estimated government expenses for the next two years will be $1,800, 000,000 in gold, about the same as it was under Lincoln, with nearly a mil lion of soldiers In the field. If Iark Hanna and McKlnley have their way during the coming extra session much more will be expended in subsidies and other republican robberies. They have "struck ile" in Texas near Beaumont, 1,300 feet below the surface, and it came up with such force as to throw six tons of iron tubing 300 feet in the air. The flow was estimated at 2,000 barrels an hour. They have plugged -It up until they can build Etiquette is the stylish term for be havior in company. A few hints on this line may not be out of place. One of the first rules of behavior in com pany is to do nothing only what your company can join you in doing. Don't eat. drink, read or wfcisper by your self alone or by twos. Never spit on the floor or blow your nose with your fingers, use your handkerchief or go to the door. Never smoke, chew, or swear in company, such filth should never be thought of. Nor should your tainted breath be detected by ladles chef coffee or cloves and hide it. Af ter the wedding, then what? In men tioning yourself with others, give their names first, unless you are confessing a fault. Jim and I killed the snake, but I and Jim stole the mellons. In waiting upon company gentlemen should wait upon ladies first, but la dies should wait upon the -gentlemen first.
