latest news, given by Seers and men
who have returned is to the effect that
this editor did not tell half the truth.
It appears from the iaiett reports
that some cf the commissary Seers
have been arrested. According to the
tatement cf the o Seers the bay of
Manila has been filled up with the
most costly commissary stores. Ships
cannot come to the p'era there and

cf the way they did it. From the day
that Otis began hiring bull carta to
the present time, the same sort of
work has bn going on. No army of
roc; "-est. 1.00G miles from home ever
did otherwise and never will.
A etc watch iipoa the news from
Fan Francisco shows that a few troops
are being nt to the Philippines. So
far they are the portion of the old reg
ular army that has remained In the
United States or served In Cuba. The
recruits that are obtained are tot num
erous enough to give much cheer to
to the White house despot, and they
will be less when the returned troops
are scattered over the country and be
gin to tell their tales of service la the
A1I the new from Cuba, and that is
rr sored too. is to the effect that the
Cuban cotuTitctiosa! convention will
rot aTpt of the restrictions that Mc
KlL'ejr is trying to Impose upon them.
A wto host of congressmen have
b ioa there. When the republi
cans sft back they declare that Cuba
mcst be annex-d that they can never
govern themselves and that they will
neier be happy until McKlnley sends
the earpt baggers down there to take
charge of them. Wfeat the other con

to Spain under the treaty of Paris and
1100,000 paid for the islands of Caya
yan and Slbutu: interest on the war
loan alnce June 30, 1899, $S,423,000,
and the cost of the various Philip
pine commissions and other miscel
laneous expenditures estimated at
fSOO.000. This brings the total cost of
the islands to date up to $202,583,000.
There is another cost that cannot be
figured in dollars and cents. It Is the
suffering on sick beds in hospitals, the
tears of mothers, wives and sisters and
the rula that has been wrought ' in
health and morals. The total cost in
lives are figured up by the department
to be: American officers and men,
3 .CCS. Of these the army lost fifty
four officers and 836 men killed in ac
tion or died of wounds, and forty-eight
officers and 2.072 men who died of
disease. The navy lost two officers
and sixteen men killed in action.
The latest news (censored) from the
Philippines Is to the effect that Aguin
aldo has taken the oath of allegiance
to McKlnley. If that is so, it makes
him a good republican and the pluto
cratic press will stop their abuse of
him. From henceforth , he will be a
great patriot In their eyes. Other
news (censored) is to the effect that
the capture of Aguinaldo will have no
effect upon the resistance of the In
habitants to being conquered by Mc
Klnley s armies.
Disturbances still continue in Rus
sia. Tolstoi has been banished and
the last word was to the effect that the
feeble old man was making his way
toward the frontier. The news from
China (censored) is so mixed up no one
can make anything of it. Russia seems
determined to hold onto Manchuria. -
fa regard to what the taxpayers will
have to pot up ia clean cash for Mc
Klnley "a war of conquest, there la no
telling how many millions will be re
quired la the future, but the war de
partment gave out a statement the
other day concerning what it It has
already cost. It says deducting $73,-
GOO.000 for the increased expenses oa
account of Cuba and Porto Rico, the
fcet Increase on account f the Philip
pines is Sin,O00.0Ctf, and to this
still in the lead. The people seem to
like this old reliable coush medicine.
and we don't blame them; it is the
best remedy for a deep-seated cough or
cold, and will effect a cure in one day.
Hardy's Column
The robins chirp, the blue birds sing,
A sure harbinger of coming spring.
The ground hog is out for to stay.
And every big dog is waiting his day.
The south wind has melted the snow;
The sunshine Is making things grow.
The farmer Is wielding the plow.
The milk maid Is milking the cow.
And all things are lively just now.
How tickled King George, his royal
family and all the lords and nobles
would have been If General Corn
wallls had captured George Washing
ton at Yorktown. Just so tickled now
la Emperor McKlnley, his millionaire
bankers, trusts and lumber men over
the supposed capture of Aguinaldo.
Our legislature that has just ad
journed did pass one act of retrench
ment and reform, that of doing away
with the railroad commission. Three
men drew pay while one did the work,
and his work was only talk and ad
vice for he had no power to inforce.
Governor Dietrich proposes to play
the same game Dave Hill did, when he
was elected to the senate; that is. to

George Evans was the only son of a
rich merchant in one of the large vil
lages of western New York. He was
the pride of two older sisters, in fact,
he was the pride of the whole village;
ia short, he was a model boy. He
loved books and hated cigarettes and
tobacco in all forms, and as for li
quor, he never knew the taste. He
rather went fishing than to a dance,
and on a squirrel bunt rather than to
a circus.
Maggie Searls was the youngest of
a large family; her father was poor
and pounded out a living on the anvil
before a blacksmith's forge. Maggie
was the pride of her family and was
the pattern girl of her neighborhood.
She was bright and good-looking,
though not considered a beauty.
George and Maggie attended the
same school, forty years ago, and were
always in the same classes and were
counted the two best scholars in the
school, at least that was their standing
when under our instruction. They en
joyed fun, snow-balling, coasting down
hill and skating on the Ice as well as
any boys and girls ever did, but fun
never kept them from learning their
' On opening our last term In the
school we offered a prize of a small
red covered book to the one who left
off at the head of the class the most
times during the term.
The book gave a history of the
babes la the woods left to starve. The
class stood in line ' and - when one
missed a word the one below, who
could spell the word correctly, would
take his place. Then to wind up each
recitation each one had the privilege
of pronouncjng any hard word in any
back lesson to the one above him.
Then, too, and after all was through,
the one at the head went to the foot.
The last lesson was nearly through.
George was at the head and Maggie
stood next. Their record . was . even
sixty-one and the one leaving, off at
the head 'would draw the book. Every
word was learned and the whole school
took as much interest in the match as
a crowd of men ever took in a horse
race. The lesson had all been spelled,
but a few words when George looked
around at Maggie and saw her eyes
filled with tears and one or two large
ones had rolled down her cheeks. The
next word that came to George was
pancake. He spelled it p-a-n-k-a-k-e.
Maggie spelled it correctly, took
George's place and received the book.
We could see through it with no
trouble for they always were together,
they came and went from school side
by side and if there was ever such a,
thing as true young love it was in the
hearts of those two children. Some of
the large boys tried to guy George a
little, but he replied, "Who do you take
me for? Hadn't I rather Maggie would
have the book than to see her cry.
There would not have been but one k
in the cake if it had been any of you
A few years afterwards George went
away to college and Maggie went to
teaching district school. In the mean
time Mr. Evans and several of his
neighbors had opened a large bank
and when George returned he. was
made cashier. .
The warm corner in George's heart
for Maggie had never cooled off. One
of his sisters undertook to convince
him that Maggie was not the girl for
him to , marry. She was not well
enough educated. "Don't you suppose
she can learn yet and can't I teach her
all I know." "But she is poor." "Do
you think I am going back on Maggie
now for that. I would not trade her
for all the rich, starched-up girls in
America." The controversy ended
there and they were married.
The last time we visited them George
was president of the bank. There
were little Georgies and Maggies play
ing in the yard. There had been no
talk of divorce in that family. Maggie
brought out the little red book with
our name as giver on the first blauk
leaf, dated June 28, 1848. On almost
every page in the book there appeared
a large written K.
This story is dedicated to the boys
and girls of Nebraska.
An Ideal Paper
Editor Independent: Enclosed you
will find 1 to renew my subscription
for another year. The Independent is
the nearest to and ideal paper, accord
ing to my ideas, of any that I know. I
want to give my commendation to the
editor for the article in answer to the
European diplomat and ex-President
Harrison's illustration for standing by
our country when it is in the wrong.
Their Illustration does not apply, but
even if it did, it would be arguing the
case from a low standard of morals.
It is hard, very hard, for" us to un
derstand' the doctrine jof 1 universal
brotherhood, or to comprehend the full
meaning of Christ when in answer to
the one who told him that his mother
and his brother stood without the
crowd and wished to speak to him. He
asked: "Who is my mother and who
is my brother," and stretched out his
hand over the crowd and said: "Be
hold my mother and my brethren."
That is a standard that we as a na
tion and as individuals are yet far
from. Yet we must come to it as well
as to other precepts taught by Christ
before we can call our nation a Chris
tian land and ourselves a Christian
people. O. E. HARRIS.

The county officers of Hamilton
county who are populists or demo
crats, together with their respective
deputies, last week contributed $4.50
toward extricating the state commit
tee from the aperture into which they
have plunged by Chairman Edmisten's
extravagance and poor management.
The total subscription now reaches
$535.70. Hamilton County Register.
A Good Hint
The populist state committee is still
in debt near $1,800 for money expend
ed legitimately in last fall's campaign.
This is a shameful condition of af
fairs and it ought to be . remedied in
two weeks. Defeat is discouraging,
of course, but defeat will be turned
Into victory by honest and intelligent
work. The debt was over $2,300, but
a little more than $500 has been sub
scribed of which Merrick county is
credited with $1.50. Now, boys, take
this hint. Merrick county has over
1,200 fusionists, who, if they thought
their principle worth 2 cents a piece,
would raise Merrick's proportion of
this debt in a few minutes. Don't
wait for some one to call on you, but
send your precinct chairman 10 cents,
25 cents, a dollar or five dollars as
you can spare it, and he will see that
it reaches the treasurer. Then don't
rest. Remember that every time you
buy a dollar's worth of sugar you pay
35 cents that will, if necessary, go into
the republican campaign fund. When
you buy a barrel of salt, 75 cents; on
a keg of nails at least a dollar, and so
on down the list. Remember "God
helps those who help themselves.
Work must be done to regain your lib
erty, and effective work takes money.
There will be a preliminary skirmish
this fall and a battle royal for con
gressmen next fall. The treasurer of
Merrick county's committee ought to
have a fund of a thousand dollars and
you can better afford to give it to him
than to try to keep it in your own
pockets. ' It is your liberty and your
children's that is at stake. Can't you
make a little sacrifice to save it?

General Vifqnatn Says Such Thing Only

the Civil 'War 5
Editor Independent: I do not be
lieve in President McKinley's Philip
pine policy at all, -and as I once told
G. M. a public meeting.
I would rather emulate Lafayette than
George III. Furthermore, I-hope that
one of the Issues of the next presiden
tial campaign may , be, the indepen
dence of the Philippines. But never
theless I desire to say that , General
Funston's coup-de-main in Luzon is a
most admirable affair and he deserves
credit for it. g The plan was most in
genious, ' its execution perfect. Of
course it was not " a great military
achievement; it does not make Funs
ton a great general by any means, but
a very useful and lucky soldier.
By the information that he received
from the Philippine spy he knew just
where to find Aguinaldo, how many
soldiers were with 'the latter, and
Funston .-went there with twice , the
number. Severe fighting, was not ex
pected; yet one was likely to get shot.
Some people and some papers call
Funston's achievement deception; non
sense, it was American cunning. Some
also call it treachery, but Is cannot see
it in that light. All is fair in war so
long as one backs his cunning and is
willing to die in the performance of a
necessary military deed exposing one's
self to be shot, I cannot see where the
treachery comes in. ,
We owe no allegiance to the Fili
pinos, they owe none to us, and cun
ning is always a useful weapon in
war. The republicans .call them rebels,
.but they call all men. rebels. who dis
agree with them. As Nebraskans we
have no reason to feel ashamed of the
Kansas man.
I remember a coup-de-main by four
young officers who had been mustered
out at Washington " in JMarch, 1862.
They were intimate friends, and being
soldiers out of a job, they resolved to
go it on their own, hook, and deter
mined to go to Richmond for the pur
pose of kidnapping Jeff. Davis if possi
ble. This was an immensely danger
ous proposition, it seems to me, and
Funston's achievement, : famous as it
was, does not begin to compare with
it. Surely there was nothing of the
opera bouffe about it at all, as the Chi
cago Record calls Funston's coup-de-main.
It was tragedy from start to
finish, so I was told by one of them
and I can well believe it. It would
make the bravest of brave men quiver
at- the idea. Not so . with Funston's
deed. Three of them (one was shot
near Manassas) entered the rebel lines
at Stafford court house near Aquia
creek. They were taken prisoners by
Col. Fitzhugh Lee's pickets, then in
command of the 9th Va. cavalry, a
famous rebel regiment that gave us
great trouble in the Shenandoah val
ley and elsewhere. . Perhaps Lee may
remember the incident. Ihave for
gotten many of the particulars, but re
member that it was In early April, it
is so long ago that I was told about it,
nearly forty years ago. I also read
one short account of it, some four or
five lines in a New York paper: that is
all. I was assured'Tay the one who
told me about it, tbafcif Norfolk had
not fallen on May 10v Mr. Davis would
have been delivered to, General Wool
at Fortress Monroe on the 13th, as
safe and sound as Aggy was a few days
ago. That was one time when Gen
eral McClellan was too fast. If they
had succeeded, it would have been a
feat without parallel in the annals of
history. The war would not have ended
if they had and it -would not have
fitted these young men for the position
of general any more than Funston's
feat has fitted him for a generalship.
The papers all over the world are
full of well-merited praise for Funston,
but only a small record in New York
for the deeds of those young men, who
for the space of two or three months
were continually in danger of death.
True, there were so many great deeds
of daring going on during the civil
war, that one more or less like Funs
ton's would have passed without no
tice. While they are not so common
now. I recall only two, Hobson's and
Funston's, and the latter is as nothing
to the former.- It is not the fault of
our boys, the men behind the guns, if
they don't come to the front, the op
portunities are wanting, the circum
stances are different and what the
press now says is altogether a different
Lincoln, Neb.
A Leader in Reform and Has Profoundly
Influenced the Policies of all
the Part ea
The week before last Bryan gave
Grover Cleveland a dressing down and
last week he handed out a hot roast for
David B. Hill. He follows those two
articles with an article ?ntitled, "Jus
tice to Populists," in which he says:
' "The populist party, ridiculed by the
republicans and denounced by the gold
democrats, has really been a great
educator. It is an historical fact that
many political organizations have been
influential in moulding public opinion,
even though they have never secured
control of the federal government. The
populists have never had at any time
more than a score of members of con
gress, and yet they have given an im
petus to several reforms which must
ultimately be accomplished.
"For years the democrats preached
tariff reform in states like Kansas,
Nebraska, Colorado and the Dakotas,
but they seemed to make little progress
because republican prejudice was a
barrier to democratic doctrines. The
populists did not denounce a protea
tive tariff in their platform, but in at
tacking the republican party they
weakened the protective sentiment
among their members and today tariff
reform is much stronger in the west
than . it would have been without the
assistance of populism. The Wilson
bill, the only tariff reform measure en
acted since the war, "could not have
passed without the aid of populist
votes in the senate.
"The first national platform written
by the populists demanded the elec
tion of United States senators by a
direct vote of the people. That was
before the matter received serious at
tention in congress, but since then the
house of representatives . has three
times adopted a resolution proposing
the necessary amendment. In 1900 the
democratic platform indorsed this re
form and it is now receiving the sup
port of many prominent papers which
until recently . have been silent upon
the subject or opposed to the change.
"The populist party Is an advocate of
the system known as the initiative and
referendum, whereby the people can
compel the submission of important
questions and pass upon the acts of
legislatures. This reform has been in
dorsed by many democratic state con
ventions and was last year approved
by the national convention of the par
ty. South Dakota, at the 1898 election,
adopted an amendment providing for
the initiative and referendum, in spite
of the fact that the republicans carried
the state by a considerable majority.
Even more recently, a republican leg
islature in Oregon has given Its in
dorsement to direct legislation.
"The republican governor of Wis
consin is urging the adoption of a sys
tem - abolishing political conventions
and providing for party nominations
by a direct vote of the people a sys
tem entirely in keeping with the con
tentions of the populist psrty.
"Prior to the organization of the
populist party, comparatively few men
advocated the municipal ownership of
puf lie utilities, and yet today business
men in every part of the United States
are openly defending this . policy.
Whenever" the question his been sub
mitted to the voters a large majority
has generally been polled in favor of
this reform, once denounced a3 pop
ulistic but now regarded as prudent
business policy for a community.
"The populists favor a postal tele
graph system operated in connectiou
with the postoffice department; this
reform has already been recommended
by one republican postmaster genel,
Mr. Wanamaker, and the matter is now
being investigated by, an industrial
commission. ' s
"The populists, while holding to
their belief in the government owner
ship of railroads, have given their in
fluence to all legislation which tend
ed toward the regulation of railroads
or the securing of reasonable rates.
' On the money question the populist
party has done a great deal of educa
tional work. It has steadfastly de
fended the greenback against the at
tacks of the national banking interests
and has insisted that the right to issue
money is a sovereign function of gov
ernment which cannot" safely be dele
gated to private individuals or cor
porations. The democratic party has
in two conventions supported this doc
trine, although differing from the pop
ulists on the subject of redeemability.,
The democrats advocate a legal ten
der greenback, issued by the govern
ment, redeemable in coin, the govern
ment to exercise the option as to which
coin, while the populists believe in an
irredeemable greenback. This differ
ence, however, has not prevented the
democrats and populists from acting
together to save the greenback from
"The populists believe in the quanti
tative theory of money and favor bi
metallism because it would give more
money than monometallism. Wuile
the democrats in the senate and house
of representatives had for twenty years
been voting for free coinage at sixteen
to one. the populists were the first to
name the ratio in a national platform.
The unexpected and unpromised in
crease in the supply of gold, while it
has tended to lessen the immediate im
portance of the money question, has
vindicated the quantitative theory
which is advocated by democrats and
populists, but was until recently denied
by republicans.
"The populists, as might be expected,
oppose imperialism and trusts. They
also unite with the democrats in fav
oring arbitration and condemning gov
ernment by injunction and the black
list. "No one who understands the his
tory of the last ten years can doubt the
influence which the populist party has
exerted upon public affairs. It has been
a great educational factor and the
democratic party has strengthened
rather than weakened itself by Indors
ing a number of propositions which
are called "populistic." To repudiate
our pcpulist allies and surrender to the
corporate influences which now domi
nate the republican party would-be as
impolitic as it would be unpatriotic.
The democratic party has no reason
for existence except to champion the
cause of the people. It must stand
ready to co-operate with those who are
fighting organized greed, for to refuse
such co-operation is to give aid and
comfort to the common enemy."
During last week Senator Jones,
chairman of the democratic national
committee, made a speech before the
Arkansas legislature in which he
roasted the "reorgantzers" and de
clared for most of the principles of
the populist party. Hon. J, G. Johnson
of Kansas, chairman of the executive
committee of the democratic national
committee, published a statement in
which he drew attention to the work o'f
the progressive democrats of San Fran
cisco and Chicago. In both cities the
democrats have adopted the public
ownership of monopolies and utilities
and the referendum. He says that:
"Democrats everywhere recognize
these principles as being luminous
with the purest democracy. They har
monize with and emphasize such time
honored democratic maxims as 'econ
omical government," 'special privileges
to none' and 'the preservation of power
in the hands of the pebple," and no
consistent democrat will advocate a
purely local application of these salu
tary policies. These principles are in
the platform of the democracy to stay.
They will not be 'reorganized' out.
They are in the hearts of tne democ
racy in the state and nation as well,
and woe to the 'reorganizer who is
willfully or ignorantly Dlind to that
All the foregoing occurrences taken
together forebode a new alignment of
partif s. There is no doubt that the
Cleveland-Hill clan are making every
endeavor to capture the organization
of the democratic party. They have
made wonderful progress. If they suc
ceed, the above occurrences indicate
that they will not take the Bryan
forces along with them by any means.
That means that the old democratic
party will be split and go the way of
the old whig party. Whatever happens,
the people's party .'with its unassail
able principles, stands ready, not only
to meet every foe, but to welcome the
assistance of all men who sincerely
believe in Its principles.
