Several dispatches have been pub
lished during the last week concerning
the god democrats of Iowa. One of
ttera Is as follows:
"Not en!y will the democratic con
vention swallow the fusion populists,
but the convention will probably be
controlled by the gold democrat. ?ueh
gosa cmocraui as irt the party in iv.s
and joined the republicans will not
participate la the convention, but
ttsae who wen with the gold demo
cratic natlosal movement and retained
their indeetidtnce of the republican
organization will slide back ia and
take control of the democratic organi
sation. The state central committee is
controlled by these mea now. The
loan delegation to the national con
veatloa at Kansas City last year was
rratrolled by the gold men. Had not
Catc Sella of Vittoa fallen under the
magic ern of William Jennings Bry
an by a vlfclt to Lincoln the day before
the convention, the Iowa vote on res
olutions would have gone against the
ir-don meet of the Chicago platform.
A 6ep-at-d resentment exists ia the
democratic party cow against S1I for
hi action at the Kansas City conven
tion. But the influential democrats ex
pect all sores will be healed at the
state convention and factions In the
party eliminated with Bryan and sil

TLf Independent's "red letter spe
cial edition of April IS is beginning to
show gratifying results, notwithstand
ing the fact that a local evening paper
immediately thereafter devoted half a
column cotsraectiEg upon It. some
thing after the following style:
"Six columns of solid reading mat
ter, adorned here and there with huge
patches of crimson Ink, punctuated
with frenzied appeals for the cola of
the realm, have Wa sent out among
the faithful popoi!ts by the harrassed
members of the populist state central
committee. This is dose through the
partisan press and by reading It one
gains the opinion that the oScers of
the fusion forces are up against it good
and hard and something must be done
to pay o2 the debts Incurred last fall.

the pleasure of seeing their names

Ths Independent would suggest to
this milk-and-water attempt at fur

collecting funds to pay o2 the populist
party debt is ur funeral; and that

Print the Names
The Crete Democrat declares that
many democrats and pops of promi
nence in state politics are flirting with
the corporation managers. The charge
is true, and the Telegram is pleased to
observe that Brother Bowlby's ac
knowledgement of the fact. Fact is,
Nebraska had never been lost bythe
fusionists but for the dishonesty of our
leaders. Democratic and pop platforms
promised the people relief from rail
road rule in Nebraska. Our leaders
ignored the platforms. This disgusted
the great body of our voters, and
well, they turned us down because we
had been traitors to our trust. Our
good .brother in Crete promises to print
some names in case certain fusion
leaders continue sleeping with corpor
ation harlots. Clipped from Edgar
Howard's Columbus Telegram by a
number of fusion papeis.
Yes. print the names. What is the
use of all this twaddle about "sleeping
with corporation harlots," unless both
the whores and the whoremorgers are
mentioned by name? "Fact is, Nebras
ka had never been lost by the fusion
ists but for the dishonesty of our lead
ers." Name the specific acts of dis
honesty, Mr. Howard, and name the
leaders who committed the dishonest
acts. No flapdoodle, no monkey busi
ness, no hedging, no glittering gener
alities; but spit it out! It may ins-
prove that dark brown taste in your J
mouth and it will surely help both
the populist and democratic parties if
you can demonstrate to the satisfac
tion of any reasonable man that you
are not talking through your head
gear. Now, put up or shut up; shoot,
or give up the gun; you are particeps
crim'inis if you continue to whine week
after ' week about "the dishonesty of
our leaders" and fall to tell what, and
where, and whom, and how.

Getting- Very Tired of Imperialism
The craze of imperialism that seized
the civilized nations of the earth two
or three years ago seems to be sub
siding. It has imposed heavy addi
tional burdens upon the producing
classes of the nations and the results
have been disaster and financial loss.
The American press has beeti point
ing out to England the foolishness of
their jingo war and now the English
press is doing the same kindly service
for the Mad Mullahs of the McKinley
administration. These wise men are
just beginning to say what The Inde
pendent has said from the beginning.
They are finding out that imperialism
comes exceedingly high and when it
gets established there are no finan
cial returns. The London News gives
Mark Hanna a pointer in the follow
ing article:
"Why should not the republican par
ty, having discovered that imperialism
does not pay, "trump the Bryanite card
and come out against the unfruitful
expansionist policy?' American com
mercial authorities are saying that the
islands will never pay for their keep
even were the miserable war over.
Even if humane and ethical reasoning
fall, that argument should appeal to
the great business party of America.
"If the American people as a whole
are not eager for more expansionism
in regards to the possessions they
have acquired, still less are they anx
ious for military displays in behalf of
those who . sit in darKness, as Mark
Twain has put it. They are not wry
proud of the recent Chinese expedition.
They do not intend to play the part of
Huns under a German field-marshal
any more. In objecting to any other

expedition into the interior of China
the Washington cabinet is undoubted
ly expressing the general sentiment of
the people. The American mission-'
aries have on the whole given sensible
advice, and the people are not so mad
as to suppose that trade is to be pro
moted by robbing and killing your cus
tomers. The raucous strains of the
'White Man's Burden' no longer attract
the American mind. - The jingo pulpit,
which has been such a pernicious force.
Is. more quiet, the yellow press has
been found , out, and a portion of it
has taken on. quite another hue. In a
word, the silly imperialist fever has
greatly subsided, and the clear, gray of
dawn has succeeded to the orgies of
the night. ... The, Americans have
had their bout," and like Agathon's
companions, they are feeling the ef
fects, so they now propose a more rea
sonable course. No people in the
world learn so quickly as they, and
consequently when they find that the
course on which they embarked three
years ago leads to grave constitutional
problems, to immense expenditures to
complications with foreign powers,
tftat it does not mean one dollar's
worth more trade, and that it--does
mean a serious loss of self-respect,, we
may feel certain that this path of
thorns, and briars "will not be trod
much' longer." ,
These 'grave constitutional prob
lems and immense expenditures" were
all pointed out and thoroughly dis
cussed in The Independent from the
very beginning of this new departure
from American principles and the re
sults predicted. But the Mad Mullahs
would "on with the dance."
ETry Boer Killed Has Coat England
$150,000 and There are Some Thou
- land Not Yet Killed.
Every day men more and more con
demn the foolishness of the jingo Brit
ish government in waging war upon
the Boers. The war has already cost
the English more than any other war
they ever fought. If they conquer in
the end they will have gained nothing
but the hatred of liberty-loving men
of all nations and a few thousand
square milesjsf South African desert
made so by the devastation of war
and some gold mines. The Chicago
American in summing up the results
of the war so far says:
When the English budget was intro
duced somebody said that every Boer
killed had cost $5,000. The estimate
was generally accepted and commented
upon without examination. The truth
is, as a moment's reflection will show,
that the figure is ridiculously low.
The British have certainly not killed
10,000 Boers. It is doubtful whether
they have killed '5,000. If it has cost
them $750,000,000 to kill 10,000 Boers
that is $75,000 per Boer. If only 5,000
have been disposed of, the butcher's
bill amounts to $150,000 apiece.
There were less than 40,000 Boer
families in the two republics when the
war began. England could have giv
en every family $20,000 to keep quiet
without spending any more than she
has paid for fighting;, ,
The Boer republics, whose combined
population is less than that of Detroit
or Milwaukee, have given the British
empire the most costly war it has ever
had in its .whole history in the same
space of time.
This week England is borrowing
$300,000,000 to pay a mere installment
of the cost of the Boer war.
The British national debt practically
began in the reign of William III. and
the 'entire amount borrowed in that
reign, including the support of an
eight years' war with France, was $60,
000,000. The ten years war of the Spanish
succession added $115,000,000 to the
British national debt.
The nine years of war from the be
ginning of hostilities with Spain in
1739 to the end of the general war of
the Austrian succession, 1747, caused
borrowings to the amount of $145,000,
000. The great seven years' waf involved
$290,000,000 of new debt..
The eight years' war "of the Ameri
can revolution, including wars with
France, Spain and Holland, required
loans to the amount of $5S0,C00,000.
The greatest amount borrowed by
Great Britain in any one year in the
wars of the French revolution was
$150,000,000 in 1795, repeated in 1797.
The largest amount borrowed in any
one year during the Napoleonic wars
was $198,000,000 in 1813.
The Crimean war of three years in
creased the national debt by $195,000,
000. ,
The Boer war has lasted a year and
a half. In that time England has had
to borrow more than she ever bor
rowed in any two years of any other
war in her history.
Moreover she has spent more than
we spent In our civil war in the same
length of time. Our most expensive
year was the fiscal year 1865, when we
had over a million soldiers under arms.
In that year our expenses, military and
naval, were nominally $1,135,307,834.13,
but as they were paid In depreciated
paper, whose average value was 49 H
cents on the dollar, the actual gold cost
of the war for the year was $570,887,
377.89. England has paid over $750,
000,000 in gold for a year and a half of
Boer fighting and expects to pay a bil
lion before the, job is over.
Norris Humphrey
The death of Norris Humphrey was
one of the saddest things that has hap
pened In Lincoln for a long time. He
was one of the oldest residents and
thrchigh his business had made a large
list of acquaintances and - friends
among the farmers as well as among
the business men. He had resided
here for more than thirty years. He
was happy in his family and had ac
cumulated a competence for himself
and those dependent upon him, yet he
took his own life. He was a man of
unimpeachable character and was re
spected by all who knew him. Some
time ago there arose a difficulty about
the settlement of his brother's estate,
but it had been settled to the satisfac
tion of all and In the manner that Mr.
Humphrey first suggested. He was
a man of such sensitive feelings that
the remarks thi.t had been made about
the matter seemed to prey upon his
mind and he became very melancholy.
At last he began to fear that he would
lose his reason and the matter grew
worse and worse from day to day. The
kindness of his friends and family had
no Influence toward leading him to
take a brighter look at things, and no
one had a more devoted family or- more
numerous friends. The sad affair oc
curred on Sunday night just after he
had taken a ride with his family.
The funeral took place Monday af
ternoon at the family residence, under
the direction of the Knights Templar
conducted by L. B. Treeman.
- Rev. Wm. H. Manss read a selection
from the Bible and made a prayer
Lewis Gregory spoke and the quartet
of ithe First Congregational church
sang three hymns. "Rock of Ages,"
"Jesus Lover of My Soul," and "Lead
Kindly Light." At the grave W. J.
Bryan spoke briefly and "Rev. Mr.
Manssr delivered the closing prayer. A
profusion of flowers covered the casket.
Many friends of the family were pres
ent at the funeral, the number being
so great that a large number were un
able, to gain admittance" to the house.
The cortege was long. The remarks
of Mr., Gregory concerned the mystery
of life and death, the character of Mr.
Humphrey and the esteem in which he
was held by those who really knew
him as a man and benefactor.. There
are many ways in which mankind
makes exit from the world and all are
In accordance with the great plan of
God. , Mr. Humphrey Vas a man of
honor, uncommonly sensitive and
could not endure the reproaches that
were cast upon his name. The Tem
plars In full uniform then completed
the ceremony. The pall-bearers were
W. J. Turner, .Morris Turner, J4 H.
McClay, W. J. Bryan, A. S. Tibbets
and E. E. Brown. ,
Mr. Bryan's remarks were eloquent
and sympathetic, touching the hearts
of all who heard. He spoke in part as
He was my friend. Loyal, confident
and devoted. The departing of his
life reminds us anew of the slender
thread which supports and attaches.
Little we know of the future beyond
today. Death never comes as a wel
come visitor to any home that change
when a mortal puts on immortality
and corruption incorruption. It is a
consoling thought in this case that our
brother was spared until a son has
reached an age where he can be a com
panion and a comfort to the mother.
It is hard to speak words of comfort
to those who are related by marriage
or blood, but there is a little poem that
brings to all devoutness and suggests a
future recognition.
Mr. Bryan then read the poem called
"Amen" in a way to bring comfort to
all who heard it. ,
The memory of Norris Humphrey
was not buried in the grave with him.
It will be cherished by many citizens
of Lincoln for long years to come.

He Says That , They Did Not Tell, Half of
the Truth About the Concentration
of Capital
The following is an extract from the
speech of Chauncey M. Depew, deliv
ered before the Montauk club of
'Marvellous as has been the develop
ment of corporate combinations and
capitalizations, it is not nearly as won
derful as the advance In public opin
ion in the twelve months. The possi
bility of the formation, in any state or
under any conditions, of a company
dealing with one of the great necessar
ies of a commercial and . industrial
people, with $500,000,000 of capital,
would have placed a populist in the
presidential chair and a populist ma
jority in both houses of congress in
1896. The animal most frequently seen
upon the pages of a large portion of
the press of the United States during
the canvass of 1900 and brought out
upon the platform at every meeting of
one party was the octopus.
"It frightened millions of voters as
to the dangers to themselves, with Its
tentacles spreading over and envelop
ing the country, but the octopus of the
imagination of the populist writer and
speakerX3f October,. 1900, was a lamb
compared with a lion beside-the real
octopus of March, 1901. A billion dol
lar corporation formed in October
might have reversed the November
verdicts. .
"Fifty years ago there was not a
man In the world worth fifty millions
of dollars; there, was only one man in
the .United States worth five millions;
there were not five worth a million. A
hundred thousand dollars was counted
a fortune on which to retire, and five
hundred thousand was thought to be
the mark of a supremely rich' man.
Today, in Pittsburg, which is one of
our minor cities, are seventy men
worth over a million dollars apiece.
When Commodore Vanderbilt died in
1876 his fortune of a hundred millions
had passed the mark ever before
reached, while now there are in our
country several who are worth between
two and four hundred millions, and a
large number who have reached the
hundred million limit." ' ' , v
"A large number of these fortunate
citizens of wealth are throwing pro
tection around the accumulation of
themselves and their class by liberality
of gifts and contributions for ; educa
tion and benevolence unknown in any
other age or country. But there is a
section of the very rich who are doing
more to promote socialism and an
archy by their actions than all other
agencies combined. They aim to hedge
themselves about with a social exclu
siveness unknown to Europe. London
has been long the social centre of the
world. Genius, tvhich has won distinc
tion in arts, in arms, in literature, in
public life, in education. In ; invention,
upon the lyric or dramatic stage of in
journalism, finds a cordial welcome
and appreciative recognition in the
homes, both city and. country, of the
proudest; of the aristberacy and the
descendants of the oldest and most dis
tinguished titles among the nobility.
Their parks and picture galleries are
free and open to the people, and It is
this acknowledgement and welcome of
the leadership of those who have won
success in every department of human
interest and the brotherhood of man
which have kept the nineteenth cen
tury car of progress from running over
and levelling the ancestral orders of
Europe. But our millionaire exclusives
bar the doors and refuse to let in upon
a social equality these representatives
of intelligent achievement.
"They seek to make 'all except the
possessors of exaggerated incomes so
cially second class. The result is seen
in the resentment which well informed
people are discovering to exist and to
be growing among those who educate,
who form and who guide public opin
ion and whose teachings ultimately
crystalize into laws against the holding
or devising of great wealth."

GoTeraor Allen of Porto Rico Teels the
Force of Disapproval and Wants '
to Resign
How any American, be he republi
can, democrat, prohibitionist, or what
not, can uphold the policy of imperial

istration in the Island of Porto Rico, is
beyond comprehension. . We have not
yet heard one good, sound argument in

words to frame them the deaths, the
famine, the impoverishment which pre

prosperous but now unhappy island,
form an avalanche of unanswerable
protests against the un-Chrlstian, un
American, heartless; greedy policy of
A few days ago Viceroy Allen came
to Washington from Porto Rico and
asked to be relieved from rurther duty
there. The impression was given' that
his part had been performed, and
that there was no longer need for his
services; but the fact of the matter
probably is that he does not care to
reside where his name has become a
bywoid of hatred, and is never men
tioned save with execration and dis
But Emperor McKinley has so far
refused to release him. Why? Perhaps
because he wishes to show the Porto
Ricans how little he cares for their
wishes or opinions. He has been pe
titioned by more than 6,000 merchants
and planters of the Island, to remove
Allen, yet he persists in his refusal,
even though the petitioners agree that
some one else be appointed in Allen s
place. Listen to n extract from that
petition to the president of the United
States of America, and then consider
that the conditions portrayed An that
awful pen-picture have been brought
about by no less a person than the
controlling power behind the presi
dent; then'blush at the thought that
your country, this great and once glor
ious republic, . has become so steeped
in deceit and crime:
"Misery with all its horrible conse
quences is spreading in our homes.
It has already reached such an extreme
that many workers are starving to
death, while others, who have not the
courage to see their mothers, wives,
sisters and children perish from hun
ger, commit suicide by drowning them
selves in the rivers or hanging them
selves from the branches of trees."
Let us draw a curtain over the pic
ture. It is too horrible for contem
plation. We can nevermore point the
finger of scorn at England for her
treatment of Ireland, or call a halt
upon the infamous practices in vogue
in Siberia, or under the Moslem cres
cent, until we have wiped the blot from
off our own escutcheon, and made re
paration, so far as possible, for the
awful crimes Inflicted in the name of
the republic. Buffalo Times. '
The Pries Too High
0 The King of England costs the Brit
ish people about four million dollars
annually. Isn't that a pretty heavy
price to pay a sixty-year-old rake for
wearing the gorgeous raiment which is
suitable for no one but kings and cir
cus clowns, for leading the cotillion at
state dances and for riding at the head
of the procession on all official occa
sions. Perhaps you think the English
people capable of great folly for thus
giving Ed the Seventh the money that
would support four thousand families
or twenty thousand people in comfort,
but we are not getting off much cheap
er in these United States, when we fig
