weary and exhausted; when you are so
nervous, irritable and sleepless that your
nights are passed in restless tossing; -when
you get up In the morning with no appe

with a headache; you may be sure your
nervous strength is being used up faster

There have been a few just and

practical knowledge of things is nec

Is. Judgment is mainly comparative
value of things and actions. Using the
wrong material, the wrong words and
actions constitutes poor judgment. An
estimate of the comparative cost and
value of things is the backbone of good
judgment. Reason is not whim or
superstition. Friday is not an unlucky

IN A NEW PLACE
The Rankest Populism la Announced and
Defended by Preaidant II ad lay
Week before last populism captured
the city of London and last week it
broke out in a most violent form at
Boston. Where it will appear next,
sweeping everything before it, it is
hard to say. Populism was never
couched in more extreme words or pro
claimed in more excited tone than by
President Hadley in the most aristo
cratic church in Boston.
"We shall have an emperor in Wash
ington within twenty-five years unless
we can create a public sentiment
which, regardless of legislation, will
With that sentiment President Had
ley of Yale university on a Sunday
night started a congregation largely
made up of the -richest church society
in New England at the Old South
Church of Boston, Mass.
He said in part: "Trusts have got
to be regulated by public sentiment,
and that public sentiment is not mere
ly the opinion of any particular part
of the whole people, but Is a readiness
to accept, in behalf of the community,
restrictions independent of the ques
tion whether you or I shall be person
ally harmed by those restrictions.
"You say the community will not be
governed by this principle. We must
expect that the community will, how
ever, for the alternative is an emperor
in Washington within twenty-five
years. Public affairs can no longer
be played as a game, but must be di
rected by an intelligent and active
public conscience. Individual effort is
helpless and hopeless."
"This is the opportunity of the
church, hungry for something to do.
Its function as a disseminator of In
formation has been appropriated large
ly by the press.
"The church has thi sympathy of the
best men and must proceed to make
Christianity and patriotism synony
mous and both synonymous . of the
"The public conscience must be
awakened as 1900 , years ago Christ
awakened it, and it can be done if we
continue to preach the gospel which
"How do things stand as regards the
need of a public conscience in this
country today? The American stand
ard of - personal morality is, on the
whole, high as . compared with other
nations and ages. We have developed
personal -virtues through individual
conscience very well. But our actions
in politics and the social and business
sense prove our. moral standards in
these directions desperately low.
"There is an appalling contrast be
tween our , methods of dealing with
each other as individuals and the low
standard observed in dealings between
different parts of the whole organiza
tion of society.
"Competition used to prevent a man
from practicing extortion upon his
neighbors even if he wanted to, and
in politics we once had at least a rough
form of relative justice.
"But, today, with our industries or
ganized into trusts and the imperial
istic spirit developing in politics, the
general development of the principle of
trusteeships will become appalling un
less we cultivate a higher standard of
morality than ever before.
"The essence of a trust is that you
must trust the head of it to exercise
his power wisely or to abuse it, ac
cording to the kind of . conscience he
The old readers of The Independent
will notice that those are the very
same ideas that have been declared in
this paper for the last five years. We
have said that the empire was coming.
We have tried to reanimate an apos
tate church, we have declared that
the morals of political leaders were
desperately low, we have warned
agairifet the absolute power of the
trusts, and during all that time we
have been denounced by the college
men as an anarchist and" a disturber,
while the leader that we had supported
came near being mobbed right in the
shadow of Yale. Now comes the presi
dent of that institution and talks more
radical populism than ever appeared
in these columns. Will President Had
ley be denounced as an anarchist, so
cialist and disturber by the P Street
Idiot? Will Bixby declare that as long
as the world endures that Hadley will
find something to kick at?
It seems that populism is getting
highly respectable these days.
A DISGUSTED MINISTER '
Pastor of a Rich Church, Ha Finds Nothing
In Common With the Teachings of
Jesus, and Resigns.
The Independent has always said
that reformers would arise in the
church and redeem it from its apos
tacy. Many signs now indicate that
these reformers are near at hand. Ev
ery week the dispatches tell of some
dissatisfied minister who revolts at the
forms and hypocrisy of the wealthy
churches. The establishment . of col
lege settlements in all the great cities
is an indication that if the ministers
will not do the ,, work - of the church,
there are laymen who will. Last Sun
day there was a very great sensation
in one of the wealthiest churches in
Denver when the Rev. Robert F. Coyle,
pastor of the Central Presbyterian
church, resigned from his pulpit. The
great congregation sat spellbound with
surprise.- Not a trustee, an elder, nor
a deacon was prepared for the occa
sion. The brief reasons given by their
pastor cut like a blizzard into the feel
ings of many of the most influential
members of his church, for without re
serve, he spoke plainly his sincere con
victions, and, as a fashionable and in
fluential church, the members were
not accustomed to hearing their world
ly inclinations treated with such
A pin falling would have echoed like
a whisper in the halls of death, so
potent was the effect of Dr. Coyle's
words to his people, over whom he has
administered only since October. He
said he found in that time that the
task is not the one attuned to his
ideals of what a Christian life should
be. Dr. Coyle said he could not smile
upon many of the iniquities of the
fashionable life. Wine suppers given
by members of his church he would
not tolerate. The sound of rustling
silk down the aisles of his church on
Sunday morning might represent the
kind of cash basis to carry on a big
church with the pomp and splendor
that would dazzle the eye, but it was
no lure to him. Vanity of vanities it
seemed to him, and an awful vision of
a withered soul sprung up in the very
sound of it all.
Dr. Coyle refused to be housed in an
expensive parsonage, preach beauti
ful, poetical sermons on a Sunday,
make fashionable calls through the
week and overlook all this poverty of
service for the betterment of mankind,
just for the sake of being paid a good
salary and the accompanying "flesh
pots." Not only does he refuse to do
it. but he told his people so and at the
same time handed in his resignation
to take effect on June 1.
Since Dr. Coyle went to Denver in
October he has found his way down
among the laboring classes of the city.
He discovered that the laboring men
and women did not come to church,
and he investigated the reasons. He
found that many of his church mem
bers were cold to the thought of draw
ing in this class of people and drew

In the southwest, among the great
cattle ranches of the Llano Estacado
or staked plains, ; of western Texas
where acres are numbered by the nun
dred thousand; cattle by the ten thou
sand and human beings by units," the
ranch owners have recently estab
lished a unique telephone system by.
which they can communicate with each
other by day and by night, retail the
small bits of news that come within
their horizon, borrow supplies, and
generally keep within touch of one an
other. For a radius of seventy-five
miles from the little town of Midland
on the Texas & Pacific railroad, the
ranchmen talk with each other over
the long stretches of barbed-wire
fences. Midland has a local telephone
service, and to Its wires are connected
the wires that partition off the various
pastures of the hundred and odd big
cattle ranches. Wherever gates occur
the circuit is completed by overhead
wires. The system works perfectly,
and gives boundless satisfaction to its
patrons. Occasionally "northers" or
other high winds for which the Lone
Star 3tate is famous, break down the
fences; and the wires are also, fre
quently broken by cattle and wild ani
mals. Such breaks are easily traced
and remedied by the cowboys. When
one considers the scarcity of popula
tion on these vast plains the entire
county of Andrews is said to contain
less than fifty persons the great dis
tance between habitations, and the en
tire absence of postoffices, telegraph
lines, railroads and even stage-coach
es, it will .readily be seen what the
barbed-wire-fence telephone does to
promote social intercourse amidst the
almost primitive environment of life
on the prairies.

An Old Worker
Editor Independent: I must say that
I am getting somewhat discouraged
It seems to me that us old-timers who
have been in the fight since 1876 are
being relegated to the rear to let a few
bums run the campaigns.' I was one
of the first to talk reform in Butler
county in 1876 and I stayed with them
for eight years, as C. D. Casper of the
David City Press and Mr. Wolfenbai
ger will affrm.
I helped organize the first farmers'
alliance in Butler county in 1883. You
know how Butler county now stands,
In 1884 I came to Dawes county. 1
was the first one here to advocate the
principles of the populist party and
was made an honorary member of the
farmers' alliance. I spoke several
times to them and began to explain the
principles of the party. From that
time on we began to gain until we got
control of the county. Then the re
publicans began to turn their money
loose and we found we had traitors
among us. Through these hirelings
we lost the county. Last fall in the
Bryan club at Crawford, the president
and vice president, I am satisfied,
worked against us.
I was a fusionist. Now I don t
know what I am. If the pops still
live I am one of them. If not, I don't
know. T. G. WRIGHT.
Ft. Robinson, Neb.
(The pops still live, Brother Wright.
In the new alignment of parties that
will take place in the near future the
populists will have the deciding voice.
That comes from the fact that pop
ulists are independent voters and can
not be controlled either by money,
bosses or organizations. Ed. Ind.)
A Libel on Nebraska
Having noticed the following state
ment concerning the cost of tuition at
the Nebraska university going the
rounds of the republican press, the
editor of The Independent cut it out
and sent It to the university authori
ties. The statement and the reply of
the chancellor are here printed.
"The Wayne Republican strikes the
nail squarely on the head in the fol-
owing statement of fact: The tuition
of each student in our state university
costs the state of Nebraska over $1,200
per year. The N entire expenses of an
economical student, including tuition,
board, books, clothing, lights and fuel
at Harvard, one of the greatest uni
versities in the world, is much less
than it costs the state of Nebraska for
tuition alone. The university of Ne
braska is one of the many illustrations
of the lack of economy practiced in the
management of institutions supported
by taxation, where an opportunity,
under the cloak of a good cause is af
forded to recklessly squander money
by men who care naught for the inter;
ests of the persons from whom the
money is wrung."
The University of Nebraska, Lincoln,
March 8, 1901. Editor Independent.
Sir: The statement in the clipping to
which you call my attention, that "the
tuition of each student in our state
university costs the state of Nebraska
$1,200 a year" is absolutely false. The
per capita cost of the university stu
dents to the state per year is at present
eighty-seven dollars and twenty-nine
cents ($87.29), and it is very much less
than that at any other state univer
sity known to me. See page 44 of the
regents last report. On page 45 of
same report the method of getting at
the above figures is set forth. Any pa
per wishing a copy of this report can

relieve me. But I got no better. I
then took your treatment, which I
can testify is a true cure and specific
for catarrhal disease. You were suc
cessful In my case In the highest de
gree. You are certainly doing a vast
amount of good to suffering humanity.
Your fidelity and kindness to every
one of your army of patients proves
the genuine character of your work.
I will willingly answer any inquiries.

THE NEW SENATE
The Republicans will Hare Fifteen Ma
jority Over all. A Very Large Num
ber of New Senators.
The senate of the fifty-seventh con
gress consists of eighty-seven mem
bers, there being two vacancies in
Delaware and one in Nebraska.
Of the fourteen new senators who
have been or will be sworn in, no less
than five Blackburn of Kentucky,
Clark of Montana, Dubois of Idaho,
McLaurin of Mississippi, and Mitchell
of Oregon have been previously
members of the senate. Three sena
tors Bailey of Texas, Carmack of
Tennessee, and Gamble of South Da
kotahave stepped" from the lower
house, tnu the other six Burnham of
New Hampshire, Burton of Kansas,
Foster of Louisiana; Patterson of Colo
rado, Simmons of North Carolina and
Gibson of Montana are new to public
life in Washington. At the first ses
sion all of these new senators were
remembered with handsome floral tri
butes. An enormous basket of flowers
gruced the des,k of Mr. Patterson, and
Mr. Blackburn's familiar face was hid
den behind a towering bouquet of Am
erican Beauty roses. Mr. Dubois, Mr.
Bailey, Mr Caimack .and Mr bini-
mons were generously remembered,
while Mr. Clark not only received
more ffowers than he could conven
iently place upon and around hi3 desk,
but was also the recpient of cordial
greetings from his former associates.
According to the present program,
the committees were not reorganized
at the extra session, so that no deci
sion was reached. It was noticeable
that the democratic conference was at
tended by Senators Patterson, Dubois,
Harris, Turner and Heltfeld, all of
whom have hitherto acted with either
the sliver republicans or the populists.
The political complexion of the sen
ate as at present constituted is as fol

t Republican Polygamy -
The plan that McKlnley adopted to
carry out his promise to the Mormons
was somewhat peculiar. The law that
will re-establish polygamy in Utah and
which recently passed the republican
legislature of that state reads as fol
"Every person who has reason to be
lieve that a crime or public offense has
been committed, may make complaint
against such person before some mag
istrate ! having authority to make in
quiry of same; provided that no prose
cution for adultery shall be com
menced except on complaint of the
husband or wife or relative of the ac
cused within the first degree of con
sanguinity, or of the person with
whom the unlawful act is alleged to
have been committed, or of the father
or mother of said person, and no pros
ecution for unlawful cohabitation shall
be commenced except on complaint of
the wife or alleged plural wife of the
accused; but this proviso shall not ap
ply to prosecutions under section 4208
of the revised statutes, 1898, defining
and punishing polygamous marriages."
When polygemous husbands, wives
or near relations take to instituting
prosecutions of polygamists in Utah,
it will be when the Mormons change
their religious beliefs. The McKinley
contract with the Mormons has been
carried out to ihe letter.
