It Is hardly fair to Mr. Pills-ury to
show only one side of the picture, in
asmuch as he won 30 games, drew 4
and lost 4 out of 38 played in the two
exhibitions. Hence, we clip the fol
lowing from the dally papers, as a sort
of consolation prize: .
Tuesday evening Mr. Pillsbury
showed the players a new turn In the
attack against Brentano's defense to
the Ruy Lopez. C. Q. De France, sec
retary of the Nebraska chess associa
tion, asked Mr. Pillsbury to play the
Lopez in order that the new defense
might be tried. Following is the rec

THE PARTY DEBT
It Mast b Paid or W Will Have to Dis
band. What Arlington Township
Editor Independent: I see by your
published statement of collections by
the finance committee that a little less
than $400 has been collected since the
close of the campaign to pay a debt
of $2,300. At this rate when will we
get the debt paid? This debt must
be paid if the populist party ever ex
pects to accomplish anything in the
future. It ought to have been paid
long ago. The only reason why it has
not is that the same old game of freeze
out as usual is being played. Too
many waiting to see if somebody won't
pay. If a few men, yes, one man in
each county with interest and gener
osity enough to head a subscription
with $5, get a few more pops to join
him with similar amounts and pick up
all the small amounts possible, the
debt would all be paid in one week,
nobody hurt and the populist party
of Nebraska could claim to be an hon
est party, which it cannot do until it
pays its honest debts.
Because of sickness and the action
of the party in regard to this indebted
ness I have withdrawn from the exe
cutive committe and Senator Schaal
of Sarpy county has taken my place on
said committee. If this debt is not soon
paid off I will not only withdraw from
the state central committee, but from
the party itself, for I will not long re
main a member of a firm or a political
party that does not pay its honest
Some time after the close of the
campaign the statement was published
that we were behind in our expenses
about $1,800. I at once looked up our
receipts and found Washington county
was behind eight dollars and did not
try to collect this, but paid it out of
my own pocket and have Treasurer
Mahn's receipt for it. When they of
fered to pay me a part of it I said I
would not take it, but would raise all
the money we could and pay in on the
debt. This helped very materially in
one Arlington township contribution.
Now the little township of Arlington
with only about 300 voters has paid
toward liquidating the campaign debt
$8 plus $23.20, a total of $31.20, besides
a few small contributions that I do
not know. Now suppose each county
would do no more than the little town
ship of Arlington in Washington coun
ty. We would not only have enough
to pay every dollar of our indebted
ness, but a nice little fund to begin the
fall campaign with. They can do it if
they will. Will they do it? If they
wish the party to continue in its good
work they had better.
I write this letter for two reasons:
First to unburden my mind, and, sec
ond, because of the days of Afuld lang
Sine. I have not written this for pub
lication over my signature looks too
much like egotism but you can select
all the facts you choose from it in
making up your roll of honor; It may
appeal to the pride of other townships.
C. A. WHITFORD.
Laws authorizing the use of voting
machines have been passed by New
York, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Ohio,
Michigan, Iowa and are rapidly being
adopted in other states. In cities like
Rochester, Buffalo, Detroit and else
where the voting machine has given
entire satisfaction, insuring accuracy
and celerity in elections, and where
introduced it bids fair to solve the
problem. The use of voting machines
has proven the soundness of the claim
that they reduce errors to a minimum.
Another element in their favor Is the
saving In the cost of an election. It is
estimated that by the use of voting
machines in a city like Omaha, the
number of election precincts can be cut
down nearly one-half and a saving
made in the expense of printing and
stationery. This would mean to the
city of Omaha a reduction of election
expenses of from three to five thou
sand dollars for each election, and
would do away with the election contests.

...a Pipe Wrench
Put on Uniforms
Little by little the old apostate in
the WThite house sets up the forms of
royalty. The secretary of" war is a
civilian. It is not required of him that
he should even know the difference be
tween a hollow square and a vacant
corner lot. It is doubtful if he could
put a single company through the
manual of arms if some young West
Pointer should give him permission to
do so by way of a joke. It is some
what perplexing, therefore, to find the
secretary insisting that army officers
calling at his office' shall appear in
uniform. This order is an evidence
of the rapidly growing military ten
dency everywhere noticeable since the
old benevolent assimilator undertook
to make an empire out of this repub
lic. Everything must be done to sur
round the emperor of the Philippines
with all the pomp and splendor possi
ble. The next order will be to the ef
fect that the secretary of war must
don some sort of a uniform resplend
ent in gold lace and the barbaric gor
geousness that distinguish the courts
of Europe. "On with the dance. Let
joy be unconfined."
