Russia's retaliation upon our com
, zaerce because of the imposition of a
countervailing duty upon her beet su
gar is not only attracting the atten
tion ef the cations of the world to our
trade regulations, but Is awakening
members of congress to the danger of
a trade war unless oar tariff is modi
fied. Representative Mann of Chica
go has introduced a bill repealing sec
tion & cf the Dingley act, under which
counter-tailing duties are Imposed, and
; stated that he hoped "the sugar trust
holdings would heed the warning."
Mr. Mass entertains no hope of se
cruriBg action upon his amendment at
this session. ...
The Cost millers and farmers of th-j
jsorthwest are becoming excited over
what appears to be a purpose In conti
nental Ksrop tu discriminate upon
cm pretext or another against our
agricaliural products. Representative
Tawney has received several letters
froia Holland warning him that un
less the tarts on bulbs is modified Hol
land will increase the tax on flour, and
practically prohibit Its Importation.
Unless we amend our tariff laws this
commercial resentment will crystal
lise Into discrimination oa the grounds
of seif-protectioa If no other excuse
can be offered- Thoee nations which
consider they hate a ground for com
plaint are coming rspidly forward, and
Representative Tawney, a protectionist
republican himself, admita the Justice
of the complaint. lie says that white
our duty cn bulbs was Imposed to
stimulate domestic Industry, there has
beea a Urge Increase la the importa
tion of trails and no material increase
In the prod action of bulbs la this
country. He says there would be no
"kzrir'? sold the tariff be removed,
and will m a day or two Introduce a
bill to rerwve it.
- The Independent hss been telling its
- readers for the last two years that the
republican party would soon be an ad
. locate of free trade. The mullet heads
who have been shouting for protection
will next time shout Juct as loud for
free "trade if It Is put In the republi
can platform as they ever ahouted for
protection. Heretofore when free trade
was mestiostd they shivered . from
head to foot. Just name It republican
doctrree ad they will silver no more.

lfager be esdared. " The selling of

Dr. C. S. Shepard. Dear Sir: As a
result of your treatment I have been
entirely relieved of a chronic catarrhal
trouble that has distressed me for sev
eral years. " The ailment was Induced
by the alkali dust so common In my
locality. The leading symptoms were
stoppage of the nostrils, with irrita
tion of the throat and a blurring of the
eyes. Along with these were severe
pains running tip into the tead and
the back of the ears, with spells of
vertigo and dizziness. Your mild treat
ment with - remedies to cleanse the
blood has cured me of the whole trou
ble, and I can heartily recommend you
to all. Yours truly,

110 SAKE I.IEI1 LEFT
A . Dctpondtnt Dmormt Wh Has
Faith ia This Reptbllc aor Hep
of Its Paefal Frwtervatien
by the Ballot.
. Brother Casper of the Butler County
Press seems to have the dumps and
has turned pessimist. The Independent
knows him well enough to know that
he will not remain in that state very
long. When the next campaign begins
he will be fighting with as much vigor
and force as ever, and with just as
much hope also. He has gone so f ar
in his pessimism as to Indicate that
The Independent is afflicted with par
tisan Insanity as well as the followers
of the old parties. The Independent
denies the accusation. It has, said a
hundred times that it cared not" a
farthing for parties or party names. It
don't believe that any great number of
populists In this state do. If a populist
state convention should alter the par
ty platform in any essential partic
ular, populists could not be forced to
vote the people's party ticket. If they
couldn't find any party representing
their principles, they wouldn't vote a;
all, A great many ot them did not vote
for years when the two old parties
were as near alike as two peas In a
pod. Then they organized a party that
they could vote for. When the demo
cratic party adopted most of their
principles and put up a man for presi
dent In whom they had confidence,
they all voted for him. They showed
no. signs of being Infected with parti
san insanity then, and with the ex
ception of the middle-of-the-roaders,1
they have shown no signs of being in
fected with it since. ,
' Brother Casper should cheer up.
There ,is an old saying that there is
more ways of killing a dog than chok
ing him with hot mush. What he
and all the rest of us are after are re
forms. They may not come in the way
that we want them to come, but com
ing they surely are. Remember the
history of the Chartists. They waged
In England just the same sort of ;a-i
fight that we have been waging in this
country. They were treated in the
same way that we have been treated,
but every one of the reforms that they
advocated have been enacted into law
except one, and that one Is coming.
They never captured the house of com
mons, but they captured the reforms.
They were shot down Just as working
men in this country have been shot
down by the military.
The Chartist demands were as fol
lows: (1) The extension of the suf
frage to every male native 21 years old
and to naturalized foreigners. (2)
Equal electoral districts. (3) A vote
by ballot, (4) Annual parliaments.
(5) No property qualifications for
members of parliament. (6) Payment
for members of parliament. Every one
of the demands have been enacted into
law except the last. Everything indi
cates that it will not be long before
that will be the law in England, too.
Now look at the reforms 'that we
have been advocating. State legisla
ture after legislature is passing resolu
tions asking congress to submit an
amendment to elect senators by tha
people. City after city is taking over
the ownership of light, water works
and street car systems. In many of
the great dailies where such a thing
would have been considered high trea
son, lunacy, anarchy or something of
that sort five years ago, there are in
dorsements of many of the principles
of reform which we have been advocat-'
Ing. Reform moves onward. Brother
Casper. The very insanity of the party
in power helps it forward. When the
people look upon this new army that
McKinley has organized with a thou
sand officers and fifty privates, the
other Poor Bah incidents of his world
ness and begin to pay the new taxes
imposed, that will be a help to reform.
Cheer up, Brother Casper. There is
one body of men, about two million
strong, that are never going to lay
down or give up the fight. Whatever
happens, you can rely upon them. No
bosses, no reorganizationists, no mili
tary glamour will ever get them to
swerve one inch. In discussing the
article that appeared in The Indepen
dent entitled "A Word to Sane Men,"
Mr. Casper says:
In "A Word to Sane Men" the Ne
braska Independent makes some very
goqd points, but, indirectly proves
there are no sane men, it is a little
doubtful whether the advice to voters
will make the impression it should.
The Independent takes the ground that
in the event that the Cleveland crowd
captures the democratic organization
three years from next summer, the
south will vote just as solid for them
as it ever did for Bryan. We are will
ing to admit the truth. Then again it
says: "There can be no possible doubt
that if the next republican national
convention should declare for free sil
ver, for the Declaration of Indepen
dence, for the withdrawal of oui
troops from Cuba and the Philippines,
for a reduction of the standing army,
for free Bhips, for the greenbacks as
against national bank currency, that
the mass of republican voters would
support the ticket with just as much
enthusiasm as they do now when it op
poses all these things." When The
Independent takes the ground that
populists are free from this partisan
blindness, we have doubts, about the
editor's sanity. However, the articie
is full of good sense, if good sense was
any value in politics-which it isn't.
People who think the masses need edu
cating, might as well begin to revise
their tactics. Every great question
that has been canvassed and thorough
ly explained, since the close of the
civil war, has been defeated. The bet
ter the cause, and the stronger the ar
gument for it, the surer it is to be re
jected. Partisanship is stronger than
family ties, religion or the oaths of
brotherly love, as taught In a multi
tude of fraternal orders. If the peo
ple fail to watch the primaries, and
defeat the baleful influences that put
their parties in a wrong position, the
cause of "equal opportunities for ail,
and special privileges for none," Is
lost. The Ocirus of ancient Egypt,
and the Baal of the ancient Syrians
were no more objects of worship In
their time than are party organizations
of our day. This editor has no faith In
the future of this republic, so far as Its
peaceful preservation by the ballot is
concerned, but we dont propose to
abandon honest discussion, -or fall in
our duty as a citizen on account ot
our lack of faith, but our desire to
worship at the shrine of party idoltry
has felt the frost of destroyed confi

War Dijartcxat Egetlsn
"General Miles is not the first occu
pant of his position to be at odds with
the head of the war department. In
deed, it is a tradition that there should
be irreconcilable differences of opinion
between the secretary of war and the
general commanding the army. When
Sherman was in charge of army head
quarters the conflict of authority be
came so acute that the doughty hero
of the march to the sea, driven to des
peration by the slights he felt were put
upon ,him, packed up his belongings
and moved the army headquarters
bodily from Washington to St. Louis,
where he remained in solitary splendor
during all. the later years of. his In
cumbency. Sheridan was as unfortun
ate as his predecessor in his relations
with the secretary of war. He was not
quite testy enough to allow himself to
be driven from Washington, but there
were continual clashes between him
and Secretaries Lincoln and Endicott
down almost to the day of his death.
Schofield was able to get along with
his civilian superiors without friction.
He had tact in abundance, and was a
born diplomat. Nothing else could

officers recently in command of the!
army has understood the true relations
of the general commanding with the
secretary of war. He appreciated the
fact that the commanding general was,
after all, subject to the orders of the
secretary of war, and was to all in
tents a chief of staff, whose duty it was
to see that those orders were carried
into effect. Sherman and Sheridan
were never able to adjust themselves
to this relationship. They were sol
diers, and nothing else. Accustomed
to command and to have their orders
obeyed without question, it Irritated
them and angered them that a mere
civilian untrained In the practice of
war should be In a position to overrule
their judgment In matters relating to
a profession to which they had de
voted their lives." L. A. Coolidge In

GAME STUDIES NO 2fi
From the Brooklyn Eagle: The first
batch of games from the first round of
the Monte Carlo tournament reached
here yesterday,, including Marshall's
first encounter with Tschlgorln, the
Russian champion, which resulted in
a draw. Jt proves to be a splendid
specimen of daring chess play on the
part of the Brooklynlte, who, at the
start, sacrificed a couple of pawns and
played with a pawn down the greater
part of the game. Tschlgorln had his
work cut out for him to escape with a
whole skin, but the contest eventually
ended In a draw. Scores:

"Checkmate" Is the felicitous title of
a neat little 16-page monthly "devoted
to the Interests of chess amateurs ev
erywhere," published by J. H. Graham.
Prescott, Ont., Canada. Mr. Graham,
in his salutatory, observes "that inter
est in the game' was never so wide
spread as at present, and that even the
leading journals of the country now
willingly surrender a liberal portion
of their space to a chronicle of the do
ings of the chess world" and believes
that there is room for a moderate
priced publication "recording faith
fully all events of general interest to

Editor " Independent: Twenty-five
years ago in Nebraska those of us who
planted the peach thought that as it
was usually grown in a milder cli
mate than we were favored with here,
we ought to plant in sunny sheltered
valleys or on the south of our wind
breaks, selecting sheltered locations,
with the result that the peach which
is naturally a late, rank grower, was
tempted to grow too late in the fall,
and trees were eftimes unripe when
winter set In. Worse than this, the
periods of very "soft, mild weather
which we sometimes have late in Feb
ruary or March tempt rising sap and
expanding buds, with destruction by
succeeding cold waves. Though suf
fering from serious loss and dlscouN
agement, here and there chance plant
ings demonstrated the fact that peach
trees planted - on the highest eleva
tions on northerly slopes and in the
bleakest positions were more likely to
ripen their wood early enough in the
fall to be dormant: when the severe
cold of winter set in. The buds also
were likely to be more completely ma
tured and to remain dormant during
the occasional periods of soft weather
in late February or March. Close ob
servation and experimenting with a
large number of varieties and the de
velopment of an occasional hardy seed
ling, has demonstrated that there are
now within the state varieties that
have fruited after experiencing a tem
perature during the previous winter
of 25 to 30 degrees below zero.
Working on these principles com
mercial peach orchards have been es
tablished as far west as Deuel county
and as far north as near the corner of
Cherry county, 235 miles northwest of
Lincoln, with encouraging promise of
success. A number of varieties of
peaches passed through the very try
ing winter of 98-9 without destruction,
though exposed to a temperature of 40
degrees below zero; were cut back the
succeeding spring and are now full of
healthy fruit buds indicating a crop
the coming season.
The Indications are that the success
ful crowing of the peach In commer
cial quantities may be extended more
than 200 miles west of the Missouri
river and 150 miles north of the south
line of the state. Since peaches are
likely to be grown in commercial
quantities may be extended more than
200 miles west of" the Missouri river
and ISO miles north of the south line
of the state. Since peaches are like
ly to be grown in commercial Quan
tities over the greater portion of our
state, fruit may ripen on the trees.
