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.

Onuhi, 'eb ness to rule; (2) that its sole object Is the public gooil; 3) "that it is main tained by public opinion and not by force. That is to say,- public office, all office from the highest to the least, ts a public trust; I mean a moral trust, not a syndicate, and it Is not a pri vate property. It must rest on con sent, not fear, -and not on right or privilege. "When we come to the third condi tion, that the government rests entire ly on consent and to no degree on force it is reported In Europe that this must be qualified somewhat In matters ot color and race. We wait to see how the state is going to deal with those gi gantic corporations which have taken the place of the feudal barons and roy al favorites of modern Europe. And lastly we wait to see how govern ment of the people, by the people and through, the people will be reconciled with the government ot all these mil lions whose consent is never going to be asked at all. "I began today with George Wash ington, and I come back to George Washington at the end. I trust that the American people will evermore look back to Washington as the truest type of the republican chief. To look back to Washington for guidance and inspiration Is to look forward to the future, for it Is to fix the eye on the Ideal, on the model which neither you nor any people on this earth have ever yet perfectly attained. "He anticipated the great social re formation accomplished in this com monwealth some sixty years after his death, when he freed his own estate by will from the curse of negro slav ery. No man that ever bore power over his fellow citizens shrank with a more scrupulous, a more religious horror from the thought of ruling by force Instead of by free choice; no man was more truly the republican to the very marrow of his bones, and was less the despot or the master. May the spirit of George Washington, the just, the free, the far-sighted patriot, Inspire the people of this common wealth In all their problems of govern ment. May it enable them to crown their work in the word of our Eng lish historian: 'He founded a demo cratic republic, with no shadow on It of military despotism " Mr. Harrison says "that It is re ported in Europe" that the doctrine of the consent of the governed must be modified. He was to polite to intimate that he had ever heard such a damna ble doctrine advocated la this country where the government of the people, by the people and for the people was first established.

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 power-destiny-divine-providence busi 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 DR.

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 t - J - T a. t all till. uirc HTVU ClIU., no Oiuuo ui cut m 1 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 Ainslee's, - - '-c: THE DOCTORS ARE COMIKB Three Months Services Will be Given rrtf tm Invalids Who Call Befere April IStlu A staff ' of eminent physicians and surgeons from the British Medical In stitute have, at the urgent solicitation of a .large; number of patients under their carfciu this country, decided to. establish a permanent branch of the Institute in this city. A location has already been secured at the corner of liti' and N streets, in the Sheldon block. The office will be open and ready to feceive patients next Monday morning at 9 o'clock. These eminent gentlemen have de cided to rgive , their services entirely tree for three months (mdicines ex cepted) to all invalids who call upon them for treatment between now and April 13. These services consist not only of consultation, examination and advice, but also, of all minor surgical operations. The object in pursuing this course Is to become rapidly and personally acquainted with the sick and afflicted, and under no condition will any charge whatever be made for any, services rendered for three months, to all who call before April 13. The doctors treat all forms of dis ease and deformities, and guarantee a cure In every case they undertake. At the first interview a thorough exam ination is made, and, if incurable, you are frankly and kindly told so; also advised against spending your money for useless treatment. . Male and female weakness, catarrh and catarrhal deafness, also rupture, goitre, cancer, all skin diseases, and all diseases of the rectum are positive ly cured by their new treatment. The Chief Consulting Surgeon of the Institute will be in personal charge. Office hours il a. m. till 3 p. m. No Sunday hours.

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: Marshall (white) ts. Tschlgorln (black). Q P OPENING. -i: P Q 4, P J 4. 2.

WiLLARD KIMBALL, DIRECTOR. . LAMES' FRIEIID. TURKISH (Iab mm 2 boxta Sold by B.O.Xottk, Lseom.HKl BABM'8 Citmka Pich:j 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. reaching heme markets in the best possible condition and with such su perior Savor as to invite largely in creased consumption.

At the conclusion of the joint session he arose, advanced to the speaker's stand, locked arms with the vice presi dent pro tempore and they v led the line of senators in the march out of the hall of representatives to the senate chamber. . ?' .-. -..- The statement that the vice presi dent pro tempore would select for his companion on this ' occasion a man who was under the influence of liquor. as represented by the correspondent of the Chicago Itecord, to lead the line of senators from their chamber through the long corridors of the capltol build ing into the bail of the house of rep resentatives, in the presence of that vast assemblage' of cultured people. Is itself ridiculous and bears upon Its face its own refutaUon. Senator Allen is so well known to us and to the people of Nebraska that a denial of a story of this kind 'coming from the source from which this state ment emanated, is in our Judgment en tirely unnecessary, but as the editorial in your paper indicated that you con sidered a denial proper, we beg you to find space for this letter in the col umns of your valuable papr.
