Tammany rule in New York may
have--been-a .terrific affair, but some
recent investigations go to show that
there are other city governments that
are worse. The mayor of Bo3ton hired
an expert to go over the cost of gov
ernment in Boston and make a report
in which . taxation . in that city was
compared to other cities. This expert,
Mr. Harvey S. Chase, reports that the
per capita expenditure of Boston is
8 per cent larger than that of New
York, and 172 per cent larger than the
average of 10 other cities Chicago.
Philadelphia, St. Louis, Baltimore,
Cleveland, Buffalo. Milwaukee, Provi
dence, Indianapolis and Kansas City.
Costs of bare maintenance, aside from
capital outlay, are 8 per cent larger
per capita in Boston than New York,
and 145 per cent larger than the av
erage for the ten cities.
Most of the metropolitan dailies
have for a long time had a regular
feature, occupying a column or so in
every issue, devoted exclusively to the
doings of royalty and the titled aristoc
racy of Europe. The writers of these
columns go into the minutest details
of the lives of kings, dukes, lords and;
marquises. Twenty-five years ago a
paper running such matter as that
would have been shoved into the stove
before the minds of the children be
came demoralized by reading it. There
is no denying the fact that there is a
determined effort on the part of the
plutocrats to educate the people up
to the point where they will submit to
a change in our form of government.
They want a king and titles for them
selves. The prostituting of their
daughters to foreign princes and the
buying of titles is inconvenient as well
as costly. A monarchy in place of a
Tepublic would suit them much better.
A middle-of-the-road pop can write
the meanest letter of any man living
and talk ' more nonsense than a mul
let head. The editor got one of that
kind last week. If a man has anv
sense at all, he would know that no
party can exist without a press. The
first thing that the farmers' alliance
did was to devote their energies to
ward creating a press to advocate their
views. The Independent was one of
the first of such papers to secure a
general circulation. It got that circu
lation because the subscribers liked
the paper and were constantly asking
their neighbors to subscribe. They
have kept up that practice until now
and are more energetic than ever. As
far as thi3 editor is concerned he has
remained at his post without cessa
tion for years at great personal loss

to himself, and he wishes to reply to
the said middle-of-the-roader in ths
chaste language that Wellington used
when McComas assaulted him in the
United States senate. A great many,
men do not wish to assist their party
in any way, they want the party to as
sist them. But there are others who
want to do something to get their
principles enacted into law, and most
of these think that the most -effective
way they can do it is to increase the
circulation of the papers that advocate
The other day Hamilton, a republi
can member of the house from Michi
gan, made a speech boldly defending
the trusts. He was cheered by the re
publican side all the way through and
when he had finished, business had to
be suspended for fifteen minutes while
the republican members rushed up
to congratulate him. Within five
months all of these chaps will be back
in their districts telling their consti
tuents how they fought the trust last
winter in congress. Their poor de
luded followers will not know that
they are lying and will vote to a
man -to send themback again. ; We
say that is the truth, because their
followers will really not know that or
anything else except what their lead
ers choose to tell them. If some man
of intelligence should undertake to
tell them the truth they would only
look astonished and then declare that
he was an anarchist.
The editor of The Independent got
acquainted with Thomas W. Philips,
a member jpf congress from Pennsyl
vania, and author of the industrial
commission, when a correspondent in
Washington. He always looked upon
Mr. Philips as a thoroughly honest
man. One thing that made him think
so was that Mr. Philips was accus
tomed to say, "I know there must
something wrong in our government,
but what it is I do not know. I want
time to investigate. I want to know
the facts." It was on that ground
that he advocated the appointment of
the commission. Mr. Philips went
Into that investigation an extreme
protectionist and he comes out of it a
strenuous advocate of tariff reform.
That is what an investigation of the
facts did for Mr. Philips. It Is an
other case like that of St. John, the
martyred banker. Will Mr. Philips
meet the treatment at the hands of the
commercial pirates that drove St. John
to an early grave?
The editor of The Independent
wishes to say to Bixby and some other
misguided individuals that he is not
a candidate for governor or any other
office and they only take up his time,
which ought to be devoted to fighting
imperialism, trusts and the . tariff
grabbers to no purpose. Nothing could
induce him to go up to the state house
and sit day after day with an outer
room full of office-seekers, admitting
them one by one to tell their tales
and why it was necessary to appoint
them to office to prevent the party,
from being defeated, at the next elec
tion. Let some young man take that
job who has nothing else to do and
who will think, that the "honor',' will
pay him for wasting two years of his
life. The editor of The Independent
will have none of it. . r 'j
During the last presidential . cam
paign one republican paper Openly ad
vocated the establishing of a mon
archy in this country. Within the
field of its circulation the republican
majority was as large as ever. ; It Is
still a republican paper and recog
nized as an organ of that party." That
move was made as "a feeler." .These
was no protest among the . mullet
heads. Since that time rapid advance-
publican - press has seized upon the
Wheeler speech as an incident that it
can use to cultivate an admiration for
persons of the royal blood the foulest
and most degenerate that flows in the
veins of men. On with the dance.
The brainless writing in the dailies
had an exhibition in the Chicago Record-Herald
the other day. It puts up
a page with tL headline, running clear
across it, announcing that" it is the
"Battle Field of Modern Thought." It
is amusing to examine what that great
plutocratic editor thinks Is the bat
tle , field. . There were three columns
discussing miracles and articles head
ed: Doubt Ancient and Modern,
Danger in Shaking Hands, and articles
on the use; of coffee, saloons, human
nature in divinity, a defense of Buddh
ism and on Tontine insurance policies.
That is what a plutocratic editor
thinks Is the "battle field of modern
Whenever imperialism Is applied to
one of its adherents, he rises up and
makes the most furious protests. Dr.
Lyman Abbott first denied that "just
government had anything to do with
the consent of the governed," but
when the state of New York proposed
to govern the city in which he lives
without the consent of the governed
living in that city, he grew almost
frantic. He declared that the thing
was a horrid crime and "that a law
enacted over our heads we rightly re
sent" When the Filipinos or Boers
resent that thing, Dr. Abbott thinks
that they ought to be shot until they
stop their resenting.
Coercion is again the order of the
day in Ireland and there is no free
speech in the island. It would seem
that England would tire of this process
after a while. She has been engaged
in it for a long time more than 500'
years and the Irish question is as
far from being "settled" as when she
began. Governing by force is a costly
thing. Neither money nor glory has
ever been got out of it anywhere in
the world. The last proposal by trie
government was a suspension of trial
by jury. England has tried that be
fore and the results were always dis
astrous. It seems that she will now
try it again.
The statement that whoever owns
the railroads owns the state, is begin
ning to become an accepted axiom.
There is no one to dispute its truth
in such states as Vermont and New
Hampshire. Senator Chandler said
something like that in the senate once
The railroads did not like his call
ing attention to the fact and promptly
retired him from office at the end of
his term. The man whom the ra!l
roads chose to take Chandler's place
has never been heard of and if one

Theodore Roosevelt in his "Life of
Benton" says: "Political economists
haVe pretty generally agreed that pro
tection is vicious in theory and harm
ful in practice." "Pretty .generally ! "
That is putting it very mild, indeed.
There never was a political economist
of any standing who did not agree
to the doctrine that protection was
harmful. It. is simply a plan to rob
the many for the benefit of the few
and it works to perfection wherever it
is tried. If that is what the people
want," let them lay aside their hypoc
risy and say so.

, News of the Week
A story comes from South Africa
which goes to show that the Boers
play more tricks on the Tommies than
ever Brer Rabbit thought of. It is said
that a few Boers captured a train
loaded with supplies at an out of the
way railroad station. Aboard of the
cars there were a score or so of demi
johns of very fine whisky. These the
Boe-s took out and after having taken
a dram apiece, poured a lot over their
clothes to make a strong smell, laid
down and pretended to be dead drunk.
A short time after a squad of British
cavalry rode up and finding the Boers
stretched out, all apparently dead
drunk, began to imbibe the whisky
themselves and pretty soon the whole
crowd was sure enough drunk. Then
tht5 Boers arose up, took all the Tom
mies captive and rode off with six
wagon loads of supplies, 100 good rifles
and, ammunition ; enough to last the
party :.for five years. They left the
demijohns of whisky untouched for
the next squadron of Tommies wno
should rido up.
Last week Hanna gave put an inter
view in which he undertook to make

The editorial association of Illinois

Now and then 'a1 preacher wakes up,
rubs his eyes and "begins to see things.
One in Chicago told his congregation
that the board of trade men were noth
ing but a lot of gamblers and thieves.
He declared that wealth so gained is
only wealth stolen. If . you gain, nine
times out of ten your gain represents
some one's loss. The traffic in options
and futures is gambling. It is to legi
timate commerce what dueling is to
the lawful settlement of disputes. The
man who makes a cent on the board
of trade through some one's loss is a
robber, even though that other con
sented to be robbed with a chance of
robbing in his turn. The Independent
has been preaching that doctrine for
years, but it has something further to
it. It has said that when the min
isters asked some of these" board of
trade millionaires to pass around the
bread and the wine at the communion
service with .the, implied idea that
the Lord was greatly honored at the
condescension of these men in per
forming this humble service, that they
were mistaken about which god they
were worshipping. If it were Mam
mon, they were , all right, but if It
was Jehovah, they were making fools
Some years ago a good many re
publicans were not satisfied with the
trend that their party was taking and
they raised a cry against the "bloated
bondholder." But the bloated bond
holder was a pigmy in comparison
with the modern trust with its wa
tered stock upon which interest must
be paid by labor forever. Watering
of stock is not a new operation in
American finance, but all previous
achievements in that line seem trifles
when compared with, the inflation in
troduced into the securities of the steel
trust. The face value of the stock of
the trust is larger by hundreds upon
hundreds of millions of dollars than
the face value of the stock of the com
panies which were absorbed in the
trust, and the stock of those companies
in turn was much larger in amount
than the value' of th 3 properties 'them
selves. During the last week several
more combinations have been formed
after the same fashion. The work
goes merrily on. Interest on stocks
already issued is more than the prod
ucts of labor over the bare subsistence
of the workers. What will the end be?
THE DEMOCRATIC IDEA
What They Think About the Free Coin
age' of Gold and Silver and Flat
' ' Money. .. . ; - -.' ;,.
The free coinage principle is the op
posite of the. flat money.' With free
coinage all the gold and silver in the
world was lawful money of the United
States and the government would free
ly coin j it, not to give it value, but
to prove its value so that a man trad
ing in silver or gold could easily prove
its value by the government stamp
on the coin. But because the people
have lately got the idea that govern
ments can make and destroy dollars
by fiat they have allowed bur govern
ment to demonetize air the uncoined
silver in the world and so double the
price of . the dollars that we must
nrTvn hnt thn InrrfpPTi wmiM tn nay nnr debts jwfth
ably the greatest swindle that has ever
been done in the world. No matter
whether it is worth anything or not,
371. grains of silver properly coined
to prove that it is the full amount
is a dollar and should pass for a dol
lar. Those who would not be satis
fied with silver ought not to have bar
gained for dollars. They might have
bargained for gold eagles or 3 other
things. , . : :. ;
The greatest disadvantage of the
fiat money principle is that it destroys
the standard value and so does; harm
by changing , the contracts that w ere
already made before the law was
changed. The men who have done
the most harm by fiat money are the
same ones who have made the, most
complaint about it. I believe that
the republicans are " the ones , that
made the first fiat money in the green
backs, but I am not sure of that. En
larging the number of . dollars was
diminishing the value of each -dollar
aricl so lowering the value of all. debts
already contracted. This was a wrong
to the capitalists or men . who had
already saved up some money. Then
the capitalists induced the govern
ment to demonetize all uncoined silver
and so raise the price of the dollars
that the debtor had to pay. This was
a cheat against the debtors ; and. in
favor of the capitalists ana It was
as much by the fiat money principle
as the issue of greenbacks was. This
was much worse fiat money than the
issue of greenbacks, because the issue
of greenbacks was a wrong of the
capitalists and in favor of the debtors
and was a stimulant for trade by rais
ing prices. But the demonetization
of the only g.enuine dollar, the silver
dollar, by fiat was to unjustly enlarge
the debt that the debtor had to pay
by raising the price of the dollar that
he had to pay it with, or lowering
the price of the goods that he had . to
buy the dollar with. It is as if .a man
had made a bargain to furnish a cer
tain number of bushels of wheat and
before he had time to fulfil his con
tract .the government should make a
law that the size of all bushels should
be doubled and all contracts made
by the old measure should be fulfilled
in the new, but the price should re
main the same as when the contract
If our national debt is about. $1,000,
000,000 and the number of men in the
country is 20,000,000, then there is suf
ficient debt to require a poll 'tax of
$50 each for the men of the country
to pay it with. By destroying one
half of the dollars in the world by
fiat since the debt was contracted we
are paying one hundred dollars value,
and calling it' fifty, where only fifty
dollars are clue on the present na
tional debt, besides the enlargement of
the state and other debts by fiat
If the government did not require
the payment of debts in coined gold
and silver there would be no need
that the government should coin it,
tut the government requires that the
debts shall be paid in gold and silver
but forbids that anybody shall coin
it. I see by v the World Almanac that
the governments of the world have
debts of several times the amount of
all. the gold and silver in the' world.
So it. seems that the. principal use
of gold and silver now is to pay debts
with, as the governments have prom
ised that we shall pay more gold and
silver than there is in the world, but
the governments refuse to coin it for
us or to let us coin it for ourselves
and use it for this purpose.
J. H. NEWMAN.
Charlevoix, Mich. :
(The above is the democratic idea
of money, but it is not the populist
idea. How does gold or silver or any
thing else become money? Gold Is
as much fiat money as silver and sllr
ver as much as gold or paper. Nothing
can be made money except by the flat
of the government. Government de
clares that so many grains of gold
or silver when properly coined and
stamped shall be a dollar. If there
were no such declaration they would
not be dollars. The silver and gold
would simply be commodities, like
wheat and corn, and one of the differ
ences between a commodity and money
is that a man must take money . in
payment of debt by the flat of the
government and for no other reason
The government does not force a man
to take wheat or corn or any other
commodity In payment of debt, but
it issues a flat, first declaring what
is money and then that it shall be re
ceived in full satisfaction of all debts
and taxes. It is impossible that there
could be any other kind of money
than fiat money. The argument in the
communication concerning the quan
tity theory that as money Increases
prices rise and as it decreases prices
fall and debts are increased is sound
and in accordance with the teaching
of all economists of authority. Ed.

GOOD CORN AND GOOD PRICES.
The seed corn we offer this season is Nebraska grown and much
of it comes from fields that made as high as 75 bushels per acre. It Is
all hand picked, dry, well matured and tipped.
It will be important that you place your order early. The best al
ways goes first and prices are sure to go higher.
