THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT
The man or woman with an irritable
temper, restless, fidgety movements, fail
ing memory and lack of concentration is
suffering from crippled nerves. The
lines otcare, the palid cheeks, the wasting
flesh, the dark circles under the eyes tell
til too plainly of the worry, the pain,
the loss of sleep and disturbed digestion,
that break down the nervous forces and
consume the vital power. For quick and
sure relief nothing equals
It relieves the pain; quiets the irritation, strengthens the overtaxed and weak digestion
and feeds the worn-out brain and the wasted nerves. Try a bottle to-day.

-WHAT IS OUR PART?"
Hon. C F. Frank, chairman of the
populist county central committee,
Seward, called on Secretary De France
last week and, after making a per
sonal contribution, asked: "What is
Seward county's share in this debt?
How much ought we to raise toward
paying it off? We have always done
our part and want to do it again, and
would like to know what our part is?"
Secretary De France Informed him
that under the plans devised by the
way and means committee, nothing
eavoring of an "assessment" had been
adopted; that the question of how
much each county or each individual
might give was left wholly with the
donor. Mr. Frank thought that
there ought to be some guide or stand
ard by which it could be ascertained
whether, of two counties of unequal
voting strength, one had contributed
relatively more than the other. To
this the reply was made that crop con
ditions last year ought to cut consider
able figure; that a county, with 1,200
fusion voters, where crops failed last
year, ought not to pay as much as an
other, having the same number of
oter. where crops were good.
Another question discussed was that

of what each county had done in the
past. Now, at this time, the ways and
means committee cannot undertake to
make any "postmortems." Let the
dead past bury the dead. Some coun
ties have doubtless done much better
than others in the past. Some indi
viduals have doubtless been much
more liberal than others, when viewed
from the standpoint of ability to pay
and benefits received. But the ways
and means committee cannot, at this
time, undertake to zo to the bottom
of this matter. Its work is in the
present, and it has not the time to dig
up historical facts. Later, perhaps,
when the present debt has been fully
wiped out. it mieht be well for th
state committee to have a complete
reckoning of these old matters a com
plete settlement as it were between
the counties and the state committee.
This idea of each countv dnin
actly its share and not a cent more
and waiting to see if all the other
counties have done their share, is "the
same old game of freeze-out" mention
ed by Hen. C. A. Whitfprd in his ar
ticle two week3 ago. A good way is to
go ahead, do the best vou can. and af
ter the battle Is over, pat yourself af
fectionately and say, "see what we
did." Nothing can be accomplished
by resorting to the tricks of our hov-
hood days when in swapping jack-
knives we insisted that the other fel
low "drop first."
However, if a standard is reallv
needed, multiply the number of votes
cast for Governor Poynter by 5, point
on two decimal places, and you have
the number of dollars: and bv the time
your county has contributed half the
given amount, you can say, "we have
done our share toward paying off the
"I plead guilty," writes H. A. Houtz
of Albion, "to having been a willing
worker in the cause of reform in the
years gone by. I came to this state In
the spring of 1884. The reform fight
was on and I went into the ranks and
for about 15 years spent time and
money and worked earnestly for the
overthrow of monopoly, corrupt par
ty principles, and finally for the de
feat of both old parties in the state,
and especially In this county.
"I was an alliance man, an Indepen
dent, and a populist, in the order
named; but, a fusionlst no, never. In
the early '90's we fought the combined
opposition of both old parties and were
rewarded with decisive victories. When
the democratic leaders saw there were
no longer any spoils to divide with the
republicans, they began to vote with
the populists and sought to gain the
confidence of our leaders and thereby
gain access to the inside stronghold
that from the outside had proven im
pregnable to the combined efforts of
all enemies. Flattery had its effect on
some of the populist leaders, who con
ceived the idea of "going to bed with
democrats in order to bring forth a
fusion monstrosity." A great many
true populists did not approve such an
"In the first pop fusion convention
it wa3 advocated by a few leaders
(who had axes to grind) that the dem
ocrats ought to receive some recogni
tion for what they had done for the
pops in the previous election; and a
democrat was nominated for county
treasurer he was snowed under. The
next year at the convention it was said
"the pops need the help of the demo
crats in order to win" half of the fu
sion ticket was defeated. At the last
convention it was said by the now
half crazy leaders, "we must have the
democratic' help or we cannot hope to
win" -the fusion forces elected one
county commissioner by a majority of
ONE vote. Next election I believe the
republicans will carry every precinct
in the county.
"A year ago last fall, when the fu
sion monstrosity was openly an
nounced and Indorsed in the county
convention, I resigned my position a3
committeeman of this, Governor Poyn
ter's home precinct, and said I would
not work in fusion harness. This pre
cinct used to give a pop majority of 30
to 40; last election the populist pre
cinct ticket was elected by majorities
of from 2 to 4. Great is fusion! In
stead of being a pleasant panacea, it Is
proving to be a most nauseating nos
trum, which many true populists re
fuse to swallow. I no longer dance to
the call of the fusion floor managers,
and so, my dear sir, you can see that I
would hardly be in favor of helping to
pay the fiddlers."
CHAT WITH CONTRIBUTORS.
"Please don't bother me any more,"
exclaims John T. Plumb of Richland,
Colfax, as he donates a silver quarter
to help pay off the populist party debt.
Mr. Plumb's wishes shall be respected;
but if he will look at Colfax county's
contribution, elsewhere in this report,
he will no doubt agree that a county
which cast 1,359 vctoc for Governor
Poynter last fair 426 plurality over
the republican candidate a county
where practically every county officer
is a fusionlst, might do a little better
than contribute 1.25 toward clearing
up our Indebtedness. The ways and
means committee has no desire to
make comparisons or -cast any reflec
tlons but Mr. Plumb has raised the
question. That committee has a duty
to perform to collect funds to pay the
debt. If it neglects to "bother" Col
fax county populists, it will be guilty
of neglect of duty. ,
A contributor out in' Red Willow
county says: "I am a subscriber to
The Independent; have been ever since
it came out as the Farmers' Alliance
and think it a grand paper, and get
ting better all the time."
There are some bright spots in col
lecting campaign funds and some not
so bright. The following gem is too
good to be consigned to oblivion: "I
believe in paying as we go. I have con
tracted no debts myself and do not
propose to pay the debts of others.. I
am whipped. I am snowed under. I
am subdued. I am out of politics. Next
time I shall vote for the man I like,
regardless of politics. I am the only
man in Heywood precinct that is a
populist. I am like a stranger in a
strange land. From this on I shall try
and tend my own business and not
trouble others, r I shall submit to the
powers that be and obey the law. Pay
my taxes. Hold ray head up. Shun
no man. Live as long as I can. Treat
every man as a friend until I find he is
not a friend." Good enough. Epigram
matic. Logical. Man is a social ani
mal; but there have always been her
mits and misers.
F. L. Turner, t Holbrook, Furnas,
savs: "The bovs are willing to do
their part; but the crops have been
short and money still shorter; nev
ertheless will try , and raise some to
D. A. Smith, Fairfield, remarks:
"My heart is 1c the work; and as long
as God spares my life I shall do all I
can for tho cause of my fellow men,
even if our state Is "redeemed" by a
set of ungodly thieves."
"Call me 'popocrat' or any old thing
that means Bryanism," says a contri
butor in Polk county.
"The crops have been poor for the
last few years," remarks Franklin An
derson of - Holdrege, 'sb it is hard to
assist, although you have worked hard
for the right of the laboring class. Ac
cept the little mite." With pleasure,
because of the spirit manifested. .
Thomas Dewey jr. Douglas, Otoe,
says: -"I believe the committee has
done the best it could; and if they
have made mistakes it is no more than
we all do. We'll pay the debt.'' That's
the way to talk. No person with a
grain of common sense claims to be
infallible. . v-
Cyrus Kellogg of Chapman, Merrick,
believes "we are representing a lost
cause, and will as long as we are de
nied a place on the head of the na
tional ticket. I am not a middle-of-the-road
man, but think we are en
titled to one-half. I think until we
claim our rights and make a fight for
them, we will get left. When they
turned Towne down, they turned down
the reform forces of this country. I
take The Independent and think it one
of the greatest reform papers of the
present day. Now; as to our party
debt, it ought to be paid in full. I
gave 1.50 last fall and will send 1.50
in this letter. I have done all I care
to, and would be very much pleased
if you will not address me on the mat
ter any more." As to the latter part
of the good brother's letter, a look at
the credit which Merrick county en
joys in this report would convince the
incst skeptical that somebody up in
that home of statesmen must neces
sarily be touched up occasionally, or
Merrick county will be away behind
in the procession. It would be a good
plan if Merrick cousty populists would
read what Uncle George Wells had to
say last week in that excellent paper of
his. We quote it elsewhere in this is
sxie. "I have taken The Independent ever
since 1890, and could not do without
it," writes F. M. Scott of Oxford,
An untiring worker is J. D. P. Small
of York. This week he sends In his
third collection, making a total of S
he has collected from the reformers of
Leroy township. No one gave more
than 25c. And that means 32 persons
in Leroy township who are sufficiently
interested in the cause of reform 'to
invest in it. That means 32 persons
who will not be "stay-at-homes."
J. E. Evans of Sargent, Custer, feels
a little "riled." He says: "We don't
feel like donating much out in this
neck-o'-the-wo6ds, for that is all we
have done for the last 12 years. Sar
gent precinct has never had as much
as a county official, although she has
rolled up 125 majority tor the populist
ticket for the last 12 years, and all we
have had In return is 'donate.' We
are not afraid to dig up; but we feel
blue when we look at the condition of
our party. I have a good deal of gall
myself, but not enough to ask any
body to donate. I think the fellows
who have held office for 4 to 12 years
ought to be ashamed of themselves to
let our ways and means committee be
compelled to resort to asking for 25c
donations." Well, enough of those
silver quarters will do the. business
and if any populist hasn t enough In
terest in the matter to give that much,
when everything is made as handy as
possible for. him to do so, the chances
are he will not be Interested enough
to go out and vote on election day.

Secretary De France hereby denies
that he ever told any committee or
anybody else that "there are no pops

M. Franse of Cuming might have said
it. Editor Tibbies or the linotypef 'or

"As we had almost a total failure of
crops in this section of, Nebraska,"
writes William Uerlings of Indianola,
"you need not be surprised if returns
come in very small. I trust tbat this
will not discourage, you in your noble
work. A quarter given in that spirit
is worth ten dollars given grudgingly.
Discouraged? No, indeed. Let no man
in the drouth-stricken regions give at
all unless he is amply able to spare it.
C. S. Leslie, Winside, Wayne, seems
to be a sort of populist Robinson Cru
soe; he says: "I am the only populist
in Hancock precinct. There were two
others--one voted the republican tick
et; the other has gone west."
J. L. Williams, Palmyra, Otoe, con
fesses that he is doing nothing toward
collecting funds, remarking that "It
is too much like rolling logs up hill."
Well, the' ways and means committee
has been doing a little of that sort of
log-rolling for several weeks. It is
not the easiest work in the world
but it ought to be. done; and some
body must put his shoulder against the
hand-spike if the log is ever rolled to
the top of the hill.
Judge B. G. Mathews of Ogalalla,
Keith, says: "I am a democrat, yet
I give all the aid and comfort I possi
bly can to the populist cause, as I can
see no difference in principle,, and
only in name, between the parties."".
Judge L. M. Moulton, Taylor, Loup,
writes: "I am much pleased with your

Some misunderstanding occasionally
arises on account " of the condensed
form we are compelled to adopt in ac
knnwlederine receipts. For. example.
last week A. Wilson of Harvard sent
in 2.50, of this amount M. F. Herring
ton and Frank Casper each gave ' 25c
and Mr. Wilson himself put in 12. Un
der head of "Individual contributions"
appears this sentence: "Contributions
of 25c each, unless otherwise speci
fied." This is to save space, because
a great majority of the small contri
butions are exactly 25c. And wher
ever a name appears without an
amount immediately following, that
person gave 25c. Also, wherever a
name appears enclosed in parenthesis
(John Doe), it means that John Doe
gave a quarter, but it was sent in by
another person. Accordingly, Mr. Wil
son's remittance was acknowledged
thus: "List of three by A. Wilson,
2, (M. F. Herrington, Frank Casper),
all Harvard." That told the whole
story in the fewest number of words.
Mr. Wilson sent In $2.50; two dollars
was his own money, and 50c was given
by Herrington and Casper; and all get
mall at Harvard. Is this plain
In sending his subscription of a dol

Hon. O. Colby, of Arlington, says: "I
have been in the cause of reform since

else than an instrument or contriv

men rob, oppress and plunder the peo

friends may live in ease, rioting and
wantonness. I should like very much
to see such men stopped in their mad
career and made to do something use
ful for themselves and the rest of man
kind. "I assure you I am not disposed to
go backward. I would far sooner go
with Eugene "VY Debs and his asso
ciates, even though I had to shoulder
a musket now, in my eightieth year.
But, perhaps, I am writing too much.
I would just say: Let all reformers
be sure they are right and stick to it,
remembering that sound logic given to
the people through lectures or the pub
lic press are far more powerful than
armies with banners. 'Tis a matter
of history that Napoleon Bonaparte
dreaded the local press more than he
did the combined armies of his ene-
mies. We must learn to use the press
and the rostrum to expose the wicked
ness and folly of our oppressors."
A good friend in one of the western
counties accompanies his contribution
with these remarks: "Although hold
ing populist views, I do not care to
have my name appear as a worker. I
am more interested in a coming king
the Lord Jesus Christ, from heaven
which I believe is imminent and will
have to be before right and righteous
ness can triumph."

"JOHN W. DABNEY Is the Special Barber of ths PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND OF
; TWO SCORE OF OTHER PUBLIC MEN."
" There are three sets of official tonsorlal artists In Washington, the Executive, the Senate, and ,
the House of Representatives, but the Dean of this corps Is. of course, the man who attends the
. President, looks after his hair and keeps the Executive scalp in good condition. Dabney Is an
artist in his line.
" The President sits In an ordinary easy chair while Dabney spends the hour and a half usually
required to properly dress Mr. McKInley's head and shave him.
"He enjoys the operation, chats entertainingly, and after his head has been rubbed and scalp
treated as Dabney only knows how to treat It, the President expresses his satisfaction, and goes
; about his arduous duties refreshed and contented. .
" Then Dabney makes the rounds of the houses where he Is dally expected In his duties that
require him to care for the hair of ladies of Innumerable ofticial families.
" Since his appointment as the White House Barber three years ago, Dabney has had many
calls, not only from prominent officials but from many ladies, wives of Cabinet Officers, and others In
Congressional and Exclusive Social Circles, whom he has attended for hair and Scalp treatment.
He has been a student of his profession and refuses to use any of the numerous so-called remedies
for the scalp with which the market Is flooded. He uses his own Shampoos, Tonics, Depilatory,
. etc., which are compounded by himself.
" This secret is zealously guarded by him. but he proudly asserts that the ladles of Washington
Society whom he treats regularly and whose hair he keeps in order, commend him for the excellence
of his work."
