The republican pipers declare that
the only way in Increase our merchant

The Independent would again .cau

speeches of populists or democrats sent
out by tbe Associated . press or con
tained la prial dispatches to the
great dallies. Nearly every one of
the- Interviews have been denounced

they are accredited. The reports of

Congressman Babeock,' who intro
duced a bill to lower the tariff on trust
made goods that are sold to foreigners
for a less price than American , citi
zens and subjects have to pay for
them, has become so badly frightened
that he now declares he has no idea of.
attacking the . trusts. He begins to
find out that If any man in the repub
lican party dares to attack, the priv
ileges of plutocracy or intimate that,
the republican policy of , "protection"
needs amending, he may make prepar
ations to retire to private life. Mark
Hanna will attend to all such men in
a hurry.
According to Cardinal Gibbons the
pope is as thoroughly convinced of the
degeneracy of the cities as The Inde
pendent has. been. He put it in these
words: "The pope is convinced that
the gathering of population into towns
and cities is one of the greatest men
aces to religion a the new, century, as
rural populations are happier and
healthier In body, mind and morals."

Bobby Burns pointed out that while
the powers that be might make a lord
out of a "coof," that to make an hon
est man "was aboon their r might."
Secretary Long does not seem to be
familiar with the philosophy of Burns,
for. he undertook to make, a historian
out qt a Sampson lackey who is on the
navy rolls as a laborer. It Is one of the
perquisitles of despotism to order his
tory , written to suit himself. ; It is
about as silly, a performance as that
of . the ancient despot who issued or
ders to the sea. Secretary Long nor
McKinley himself can ever, make a his
torian out of Maclay.
The Cheerful 'Idiot talks about the
prosperity of the Philippine islands
and gives as evidence of that fact the
increase in the revenues. That is tak
ing it for granted that the more they
are taxed the richer and happier they
are. ' -
The plutocratic press is not saying
anything about the expulsion of Ken
nan from Russia. "Are they afraid that
some remarks might be made" about
the deportation of a" certain editor by
their own emperor from' the Philip
pine islands for making uncomplimen
tary remarks about the McKinley ad
ministration of those islands? u.
Secretary Long he issued an order
commanding silence in the navy in re
gard : to the Sampson-Schley contro
versy. It is now in order for the post
master general to issue one command
ing silence in the press on pain ofre
fusal of admission to the mails. That
would be directly in line with same of
the orders he has been issuing lately.
Bartley seems to have a little com
passion for his old home in Holt coun
ty. After he had learned that Clem
Deaver was to make his residence
there, he evidently came to the con
clusion that ' Holt county couldn't
stand them both and therefore made
announcement that he would make his
future home in Lincoln. . .
It is announced that McKinley is
going to enlist 12,000 Filipinos. He is
so enamored of the British way of do
ings things that he thinks that he must
lay the foundation for another Sepoy
rebellion. Twelve thousand Filipinos
with the latest arms in their hands
will make all. the old Filipino gen
erals smile at the very thought of it.
'McLean went down into Ohio and
fixed things so that Mark Hanna could
carry the state without costing" the re
publican campaign .committee a cent.
It was very kind of Mr. McLean to pay
the , cost of the republican campaign
in advance out of . his own pocket. It
is probable that Mark Hanna winks his
left eye and remarks: " "The fool and
his money' are soon parted." ' r s '
The reorganizers Jfeay that the money
question is settled. Do they mean bj
that that the government is'to con
tinue to coin $3,000,000 of silver and
issue $8,000,000 of bank paper per
month forever? That is has
been doing. "Will they never submit to
any more legislation affecting money?
Settled, Is it? Such talk is Indescrib
able idiocy. . v
The republicans -carried Kansas and
then trouble began. ' First came Carrie
Nation and wanted all of them to drink
water. When they agreed to do that it
got so hot and dry that they couldn't
get water. Then they prayed for rain
but it came too late;to save the corn
crop. Now they, say that it Is raining
so much that all the wheat is sprout

wrong step that lead to all the rest.
They didn't have any such - troubles

Write at once to LININGER & MFTCALF CO.. OMAHA. Mentio" the Independent
the democratic party "were such a hor
rible organization as they tell us it is
during campaign times, one would
think that these disinterested philan
thropists would rejoice that, so good a
man as McLaurin: had , escaped from
his awful 'surroundings. But there
were always things about these pluto
cratic editors that no pop could find
out. , . ,
One of - the greatest dangers which
threatens good, government, and . good
order -is the increasing belief among
the common people that our courts are
no longer administering - justice be
tween the rich and the poor. Several
bodies have lately passed formal- res
olutions declaring their belief that the
decisions of the courts are almost in
variably in favor : - of the rich and
against the wage workers This is the
thing that The Independent has been
warning the courts of for several years.
When the people' lose, confidence in
the courts, then the' foundations of
government are gone, c ,
In 1890, whetf-William Jennings Bry

in congress, and again in 1892, he bold
ly declared that ther duty On tin plate

beries ever perpetrated upon the na
tion. Omaha Bee. "r -V ? ' -Yes,
he did,-and he liever declared a
truer thing in all his life; That tariff
on tin of which not ah ounce is pro
duced in the United"' States and prob
ably never will be," was" not to protect
an "infant industry for no such in
dustry existed or exists' today. It was
cold-blooded 'robbery of the poor Jor

There are many and; serious objec
tions to a lottery but "more and just
as serious to a "rush." A lottery that
could have been, conducted without
personal registration , on the ground
would only have increased the number
of 'applicants and the chances of spec
ulators. The whole thing was wrong
from beginning to end. " The giving
away of property, Is 'demoralizing. A
plan whereby the actual' settler could
have paid for his land in small annual
installments, would have avoided most
of the evils, ana if, any more reserva
tions are to- be . opened to settlement

be adopted.
J. M.4 Snyder, in writing a business
letter,, incorporated the following as
his opinion of The Independent: "Ex

pendent, is the maintning. Nothing

Secretary , Wilson, has been sending
out dispatches from. Washington de-
claring that Nebraska and Kansas are
semi-arid," "uncertain," - and not in
the corn- belt. Nebraska and Kansas
have ranked from first to fifth as corn
producing states during the last de
cade while their other crops have held
similar positions. This sort of thing
we are all accustomed to. As long as
the grabbers and plutocrats hold the
government we must; expect it to con
tinue. The farmer-who votes to keep

Lincoln. Nebraska.
: The Omaha Bee is now bragging
about the great tin industry that grew
up under the McKinley tariff. Rose
water ought to be ashamed of himself.
He knows that since the tin that was
used to salt a mine in the Black Hills
was taken out, not an ounce has. been
mined in the United States. The tariff
on the terne plates" is so great that it
prohibits the importation of any of
that sort of goods and has raised the
price of tin two or three hundred per
cent. Tin is imported into this country
and the plates are dipped here to the
benefit of the tin trust and the rob
bery of every American family, espe
cially the families .of the poor. The
rich don't use tin, but the poor do.
A great long list of what are called
"tin plate mills' don't alter the situa
tion or make the robbery less, v
, With universal accord all the repub
licans declare that the populists and
democrats fuse for the sole purpose of
getting the offices. Did it ever occur
to them that it was very apparent that
the republicans .want .to .beat Jusion so
they . can.r get the - offices themselves:
Do they suppose that any one is. silly
enough to believe that they wish to
beat fusion for "the simple reason that
they want to benefit the people and
don't care for the offices at-all? No
one wants the offices but the fusion
ists. Republicans all feel thatthey
make a wonderful sacrifice when offices
are forced upon them and they accept
them with the greatest regret. The
fact is that most of the republican edi
torials on fusion are so silly that they
would give a monkey the consumption
to listen to them.
Children and fools often tell the
truth under the most unexpected cir
cumstances and that is the way the
Cheerful Idiot came to write the fol
lowing of a recent court decision ren
dered in Hawaii: C
"It will be seen therefore that the
shout that went up from the aunties
when they heard of . the decision be
cause as they claimed it was an impor
tant constitutional ruling "In favor of
the constitution, is founded, on no very
stable basis." v -
In the eyes of this Imperial Idiot it
Is a ridiculous and shameful thing to
shout for "an important constitutional
ruling in favor of the constitution."
He takes it for granted that the con
stitution went the same way the Dec
laration of Independence- did and to
longer shout for it is ridiculous.
Some "of the fusion papers are tak
ing It for granted that we have the
gold standard established In this coun
try. Don't be fooled that way. We are
not within a thousand miles of the
gold standard and are getting farther
away from it every day. We will nev
er have the gold standard until there
Is no legal tender money but gold. We
have more legal tender silver and pa
per in circulation today by far than
we ever had at any time in all .the
past. We are getting further and
further away from the gold standard i
every day and the further away x we
get the more prosperous the people :
become. There is nearly $600,000,000
of silver and an -immense amount of
legal tender paper money doing, busi
ness every day. To call that the gold
standard is to use words without
knowing their meaning.

Loss of Crops The Two Great Ad

. The loss of half or two-thirds of the
corn crop in the state of Nebraska is
not the worst thing that could happen
to the farmersA Had the same thing
occurred lasti year it would have been
much worse because the wheat crop
then was more than' half of it plowed
up, this year : it was " a full average
crop. Now the thing for farmers to
do is to cut up the corn fodder and
sow a double dose of wheat this tall.
As a rule if wheat is not winter killed
it will make a good crop and if it is
winter killed, corn . can be planted in
the spring, thus the farmer will take
two chances for a crop Instead of one.
The corn' fodder that can be saved this
year will be worth half what a crop of
fifteen-cent . corn would be. Save all
your, corn fodder and sell yours and It
will surely bring a good price. May
and Junj make the wheat," July and
August make the corn. We are not
liable to have a dry spell in May and
June more than any Other state in the
union. . Neither wheat; corn or cotton
can be grownr by Irrigation and com
pete with the section" that does not
need irrigatibn. There are somethings
that seem to pay out, such as fruit
and vegetables and . perhaps some
years irrigated potatoes may pay. It
is no small job to irrigate a large field.
The farmers of Nebraska have no rea
son for discouragment. Count this
year with the four . preceeding years
and we hae produced 10 per cent more
than any state" east of the lakes ac
cording to the number of acres plowed
and 20 per cent more than any state
east of Ohio.
Both of the two great admirals have
got a foot in it, and yet their men won
a victory hardly . equalled in history.
Why did Sampson take the best ship
In the navy and go off, out of sight, at
such a critical time? Was he afraid?
Had our navy been sunk he would have
laid it all to Schley.' Was it very
important that Sampson should talk
with Shatter just as that time? Then
why did he not send a little tug after
him or go himself on a little tug and
leave his ship where it could help in
the fight should it be brought on?
There is no use in denying it, every
body expected a greater battle than
they had. The, Spanish were supposed
to have, some of the best warships in
the world. If Sampson had judged
the chances even he would undoubt
edly . have stayed . there and' would
have been accorded all the glory. Then,
as for Schley, his ship took a turn
to starboard when he ought to have
turned the other way at the very be
ginning of the -battle and let another
ship, the Texas, take the post of dan
ger. Then only a day or two before
the battle Schley started for Key West
to get coal and was sent back post
haste and ordered to stay in battle
line. Had he been permitted to go
Into Key West, he, too, would have
been absent from the water of blood.
Sampson seems to be the pet of the
army and also of the. present admin
istration. Schley does not seem to be
petted much more than Grant was dur
ing the first half of the "Jeff Davis war.
As good fortune would have it, the
city, of Lincoln has a republican mayor,
and council who cannot be bought as
cheaply, in water matters, 'as the offi
cers of the same party stripe were in
the street lighting matter, a few years
ago. It is rather out of the ordinary
that they should reject the Hon. Joseph
Burns proposition. It can't be doubted
that he is one of the most reliable re
publicans In the state and it is the
chief doctrine of that party that all
public monopolies must be run by pri
vate corporations. The success of our
city - water works is an eye-sore to
that- party all over the country. If
more water is needed the third Ante
lope well should be located still fur
ther up the valley. The underflow
seems to be toward the southeast. The
city voted bonds to light our own
streets, but somehow the matter hangs
fire, .millionaire corporations consti
tute the backbone of the party; to
break the party back would be awful.
Congressman Babcock is trying to
explain that all he wants to do to the
tariff is to take , it. off from . articles
that are manufactured cheaper In this
country than'' anywhere else. But
what is he suffering from or what are

ents, .losing because there happens to

It is a fact that many kinds of goods
are manufactured cheaper in this
country than in Europe, but they are,
not sold cheaper, nor' as cheap. We
have to pay .European prices with the
American, tariff added. We are relia
bly informed that American glass can
be bought much cheaper in Canada or
Mexico than in Pittsburg or Cleveland
and that after the tariff of those
countries has been paid and even then
this government will not let us bring
4t home free, we must pay American
tariff on American goods. Ought we
not to buy our -American goods as
cheaply as anybody does? Take off
the tariff and they will have to sell to
us at the same price. Our farmers
sell to the manufacturers their pro
duce, of all kinds, below European
prices, and why should they not buy
of the manufacturers at the same
