Flagler went down to Florida and
with his millions got the legislature
to make insanity grounds for a di
vorce. Such a thing was never done
anywhere in all the world before, but
an American multi-millionaire can get
any sort of legislation that he is will
ing to pay for. The deserted wife is in
n insane asylum where she is always
imagining that her bu3band will sure
ly come -before the night is far ad
ranced, and Flagler has married again.
There are some tting3 about the
average republican In the country that
no pop can ever find oat or in any way
understand. A state convention will
meet and nominate a lot of candidates
for the state offices. These candidates
will not be known to the voters of the
party, in fact, they perhaps never
heard of more than one or two of them
before the convention was held. Now
what possible difference it can make
to these men on the farms whether
the man who shall act as secretary of
state shall be William Brown or. Peter
Anderson 13 the thing that the pops
can't find out, but to the republicans,
who never saw either of them and
perhaps never will, it does. Within a
week after the convention these men
will all firmly believe that if the man
by the name of William Brown is not
elected secretary of state, disaster and
ruin will be sure to follow. Why they
1 so firmly believe it no man can find
out. If you tell the . farmer up in
Wayne county who is engaged in rais
ing cattle, hogs, wheat and corn, that
his stock and his grain will grow just
as fast and well if Peter Anderson i3
elected instead of the republican Will
iam Brown, he will y into a passion.
They seem to think that the sun
would not shine, the rains would not
fall, the cattle and bogs would die of
disease, and the grain would lie un
sprouted in the soil unless the man
who called himself a republican was
Now the pop is a different sort of a
man. When a man is nominated for
secretary of state he don't care what
his name Is. What he wants to know
is who are that man's associates, what
his character for honesty is, in whose
interests that man's influence will be
thrown when laws are to be enacted
and what are the principles and poli
cies of the party to which he belongs.
They ask: "Is he a tool of the corpor
ations? Who were the men who backed
him for the nomination? What object
did they have In view in securing his
nomination? If it were possible for
some schemer of the corporations to
secure the nomination of. some man in
a populist convention who was known
to be In sympathy with them rather
than with the people who demand
equitable passenger and freight rates,
he could not poll a. thousand populist
votes in the whole state. It , would
make no difference to the populist
whether his name was William Brown
or Peter . Anderson or what party he
belonged to. They do not vote for
men, but for principles and policies.
No convention .can make a hero out
of a man for them by simply nominat
ing him for some high office. There
never - was a populist hero made by
The trust system, it it is allowed to
expand unchecked,, means a complete
revolution in government and society.
If the management of all the industries
is to be, in the control of a few trust
magnatesjt will not be a difficult thing
for them to control every department
of government. The money that they
will command, the positions that they
will have to confer will enable them
to run the government, put up one
party and put down another. Within
a few years there will be no more In
dependent business men. The men
who run a business of their own now
will be managers of departments un
der some trust and their living and fu
ture prospects will all depend upon the
good will of the trust managers. The
recent decision that blacklisting is le
gal will make the whole industrial
world simply wage slaves. After that,
independence, liberty and freedom of
action will be known no more either
among the citizens or subjects of. this
government. This nation of once free
and independent men will become a
nation of hirelings. These things are
as certain to come to pass as the years
roll around, that is, if the trust sys
tem is allowed to expand as it has
been doing since McKinley came into
The thing for every man to consider
is whether he is willing that such a
change shall be made in society and
government. It will be a greater
change than has evr before occurred
in the relations of men to each other.
Are you willing to sail out on this, un
known sea? There is neither chart
nor compass to guide you. There is
nothing in history to aid you on such
a voyage as that. Even in feudal
times there are many individual fam
ilies that had liberty of action. Under
the rule of trusts none will be free
for every man's living will depend
upon the good will of the trust man
agers. Every-V man will be a hireling,
and if once put on the blacklist, there
will be : nothing before him, his - wife
and children, but certain starvation or
an existence . in an . alms house. Do
you want to try it? If the republican
party remains In power that will cer
tainly follow. It is the party of the
trusts. . McKinley has -appointed two
trust attorney generals, for the express
purpose of . giving the trusts every op
portunity to -expand .and take in ev
erything. . f - . : v :'
: . The reason why there are any appre
ciable number of farmers republicans,
is the want of information. If they
had the facts, the number of republican
farmers in this state could be counted
in a very few minutes. Having met a
good mauy of late, this writer was as
tonished at their absolute ignorance
of the course of events for the last few
years. It is not. because that they do
not take papers, for all spoken to took
one or more, but because the papers
they take do not furnish them with the
information necessary to form correct
opinions. Not one of those spoken to,
and many of them were well-to-do
farmers, had the slightest idea that
there .had. been any silver coined un
der this administration, or that the
volume. of money had been increased,
except two. These two had heard that
there had been more gold than usual,
but did not know that an Increase had
been made through the banks. They
all thought that the increase in price
of the products that they had to sell
was on account of the "gold standard"
and having "sound money." From
the information that they had re
ceived, they were justified in forming
v It is no use to try to get "facts" be
fore these men during a campaign. All
that a public speaker can do is to make
an argument from facts that are
agreed upon by both parties. Govern
ment reports, when a speaker carries
them with him,, may influence a few.
When one of these rich farmers was
told of the amount of silver and paper
that had been-put out during the last
four years, he replied that it could not
possibly be true,' or it would have been
printed In some of the papers that he
took and he had never seen a word
about it in any one of them. -

GOVKRN'MKNT 1TITHOUT CONSKNT
Unrestrained power in the hands of
any man is a dangerous thing.
It makes matters but little
better if he is subject to a
distant superior. General George
Crook, who fought 'Indians for thirty
years on the frontier, told a Boston
audience that almost every war had
been caused by the acts of agents or
other persons intrusted with power un
der the secretary of the interior. The
founders of this republic well under
stood the evils of one man power and
tried to make every possible provision
against it. To do that they based all
government on the consent of the gov
erned. Whereever that theory has been
evaded trouble and sorrow without
number have resulted. Lincoln said
that no man was good enough to gov
ern another man without that man's
consent and in saying it he uttered a
great fundamental truth. He might
have said that no man is wise enough
to govern another man without that
man's consent. This continues to be
demonstrated every day. The discus
sion among the scientists the other
day showed that men of these temper
ate zones are not wise enough to gov
ern the people of the tropics. Persuad
ing these people to wear clothes had
resulted in a scourge of consumption
and other diseases which was fast re
sulting in their extermination.
An Indian talking to a missionary
told the minister that the cause of so
many deaths in a band of the tribe
was that they had few if any dogs.
The missionary laughed at him and
said that if all the dogs were killed the
Indians would be much better off, and
greatly offended the leading man of
the tribe. The missionary, who was
no doubt a good man, thought that he
was much better qualified to govern
Indians without the consent of, or
counsel with the persons to be gov
erned than they themselves were. If
the missionary had been allowed to
govern according to his own notions
the tribe would soon have become ex
tinct. Dogs are the scavengers of an
Indian camp and if they were all
killed, typhoid and. other diseases
woujd break out just as they would in
a city where all the sewers were de-1
A man intrusted with power a long
ways from his superior almost always
becomes arrogant anil tyrannical. The
other day some Bannock Indians came
all the . way from Idaho to visit the
Omahas. The superintendent of the
school called a policeman and sent a
written order to the man entertaining
them' to pack up those Indians and
take them to the railroad within twen
ty-four hours. The old Indian sent
word back Vto. the superintendent that
if he wanted the goods of those Ban
nocks packed up and the men taken to
the railroad, he could come and do it
himself. Here was a school teacher
who had no more authority to issue
such an order than would a school
teacher in Lincoln to order some visi
tors from Denver to return home. ' It
is related to show how power invested
in a carpet-bagger, puffs him up. This
occurred right here at home. What do
you suppose Is going on in the Philip
pines 10,000. miles away where' things
are run very much "under the same
system that they were on an old-time
The truth is that the principles set
forth in the Declaration of Indepen
dence are. right and their overthrow
means a disaster to the human race.
Lincoln was right;. Jefferson was right.
Bryan is right and the populists are
right upon this question. The long ex
perience of this nation declares that
the Declaration of Independence is the
charter and beacon light of liberty
and advancement. The supreme court
decision and the McKinley policy
makes one of the darkest pages in hu
TAKX A REST
It is Impossible to rest in the city.
To rest requires a cessation of thought
as well as quiet for the muscular sys
tem. Now thought comes by sugges
tlon and the constantly changing
events of a city stimulates thought In
hundreds of directions. You constant
ly meet persons on the street who
speak or bow and each causes some
action of the brain. A man or a child
dashes in front of a street car or a
thousand different things happen that
suggests thought and cause excite
ment. Even if a man stops work, he
is constantly .' in connection with
thought , producing suggestions. For
the. most part they are not thoughts
that do the man any good or the world
at large, but they prevent quiet and
In the country one can rest. . There
is nothing that keeps the brain work
ing upon trivial and inconsequential
things and it rests. If one thinks, he
must make an effort to do so, . and
thoughts that come from effort usual
ly amount to something. There is an
old saying: "There is no rest for the
wicked," and there are tens of thou
sands of those chaps who find the city
their natural abiding place.

sending -out a;ourteous request to those
who -are ''delinquent to send in the

will make it necessary to go to the ex
