Editor Independent: Since you ask
me why I do not subscribe I reply, I
am author of "What is Money?" dedi
cated to free silver and popular rights.
Led by Bryan you have forsaken
those principles for an utterly imprac
ticable -and unjust championship of
the Boers. The English made all that
the Boers had worth living for; were
blackmailed unmercifully by an ex
clusive Boer junta called a "legisla
ture ;"taxed to death and denied votes
and voice. They demanded simply
rights. The Boers refused and the
Boers declared war. Why don't you
tell your readers thatt if it has any
thing to do with free silver? ?Yqu an
tagonize our Saxon blood when it was
Briton's ironclads that covered Cuban
waters and said to Europe as at Ma
nila "Hands off. If you fire on the
Americans you must fire on us first."
Oh, lest we forget. In lieu of wel
coming this grand alliance, which we
must have or fight the world, you
ridicule England in her hour of trial
and say: "Why not fraternize with
the Swedes?" What has Sweden done
for us or can she do? ' And in this
country they are the meanest, lowest
and most subservient tools that black j
republicans ever befooled. ' What hope,
have you of winning them from their
idols? They know nothing of south
ern ladies and gentlemen, yet attack
them and their institutions with ve
nom unspeakable.
Four columns or five are filled with
such rant and I decline to pay for it.
Give us a Journal against the money
power and for flat money based on
national honor as on all sufficient en
deavor. Let England alone; pass by
the Philippines (head-hunters, etc.,)
and deliver more and more telling
blows and ; at ;. monopoly and fraud
right at home, and I am with you.
What good are the Boers and head
hunters going to do you or the populist
party anyway? Descend from ; the
clouds, bombard pur foes in the na
tional banks and. -railroads, and your
circulation will' double. '
, I would not give England for sav
ages and semi-savage Boers, whose
Idea of fun is to push the traveler off
the sidewalk into a foot of mud, call
them vile names and cut them with
horrible cattle whips. Do you want
their friendship? I don't. They charge
travelers for even water. From a
friend who was: with them I "learn
these things and many more worse.
For example, they, refused him water
one day entirely saying, "We don't
want strangers in our country." Com
pare this with the flattering attention
the humblest American receives in
England. Why -are you pro-Boer?
Bark up a tree with something in it, -The
gold gang laughs at such far
fetched opposition; they pass it over
their heads and go. on stealing from
and oppressing the people. You shoot
In the air nearly every time. A few
articles almost to the silver point show
you could do better. I grieve to say
J do not find in your paper the organ
I had hoped for. Drop your pro-Boer,
pro-Swede alliance, anti-Anglican pre
judice. Welcome facts as they are.
Charge the banks, the corporations,
the prostituted mint and treasury.
Now they say: "Have a gold man to
Indorse silver." What do you know or
care for such topics? I look for jus
tice and see a cry for a lot corrupt
monopolist Boers who as a business
introduce anti-English bills into their
legislature solely; to pass the hat tfo
the British mine' owners and when
their maws are 5 filled the bill is . in
definitely postponed, only to reappear
ad infinitum whenever the industrious
and enterprising foreigners have made
enough to bear another squeeze. And
this is your Boer, republic? a petty
oligarchy of the worst and the most
brutal and ignorant.
Pardon my frankness. You know
I mean well. You can never succeed
by abandoning the Chicago platform
to chase rainsbows. T. H. THORPE.

In September, 1901, Mr. E. D. Ham
mond, proprietor of the Norfolk Nur
sery, picked three bushels of plums
from a single sweet prune plum tree
in his orchard. The tree was but five
years old. It began bearing when
two years old. This is the only kind
of prune plum that has been a success
In Nebraska. It has endured the
drouth of '93 and '94 and the hard
winter of " 99. It is a grand success
for northwestern Nebraska.

Mr. Wllshlre Wants the Independent to
Explain the Difference Between
Populism and Socialism
Editor Independent: I have noticed
with interest that you are devoting
considerable attention to socialism in
your journal. In your editorial in
your issue of March 15 I see that you
state quite clearly the difference be
tween populism and socialism. You
say the populists believe in the public
ownership of railways, telegraphs, and
everything in which competition is im
possible, whereas socialists believe in
national ownership of all the means of
production. You of course take the
populistic stand. Without at this
time going into the relative merits of
populism and socialism, as above de
fined, I would call your attention to
one fact which, as far as I have seen,
you have entirely omitted in your dis
cussion of populism and socialism, and
that is, that the socialist theory is
based not only upon the desirability
of socialism, but upon the economic
inevitability 4 of it that is, that even
if socialism were not desirable it is
economically an Inevitability anyway,
says the socialist. He arrives at this
conclusion because the competitive
wage system prevents the capital
which Is produced every year from be
ing' fully distributed to the workers
and therefore it is steadily" accumulat
ing In the hands of Its owners, the
capitalists. f This accumulation of capi
tal naturally will finally produce a
condition in which the capitalist must
prevent further accumulation; other
wise so much will be produced that
none of it will be valuable. In Ne
braska if a farmer produces more
wheat than the market can absorb, the
price of . the surplus determines the
price of the whole, and he loses money
on the whole crop. Similarly with the
capitalist when more capital is pro
duced than the market can absorb, the
surplus determines the value of the
whole, and none of It is .worth any
thing. Now, the moment capital be
comes worthless, owing to overproduc
tion, that moment does the capitalist
say to the workman: "I don't care to
employ you any longer, because your
labor is valueless to me for the reason
that what you produce is valueless."
Hence occurs an unemployed problem.
Of .course, from the workingman's
standpoint populism promises but lit
tle in comparison with socialism, and
you, as the editor of a populist paper,
can readily say that you are not look
ing after the workingman as muchas
you are arier me iarmer, ana that you
naturally, are advocating something
which is to the benefit of the people
vrn ronrAiont , ,. Wftwairoi.! O iron tii,
ployed problem, as the result of over
production, which I have presented,
you will see that the farmer himself
will be unable to sell his crops if the
working-men are unemployed and can
not buy them. ;
Hoping that -you may find space to
publish this letter, with your com
ments upon the same, I am, yours
faithfully,, ,
Toronto, Canada ;'.
(It has always seemed to The Inde
pendent that the fundamental error
of socialism is the doctrine of "over
production." The argument that Mr.
Wilshire makes is based upon that
proposition. That error has run all
through the works of a certain school
of political economists for nearly a
hundred years economists who were
not socialists as well as those who
were. If it is granted that there, can
be such a thing as overproduction,
then, of course, Mr. Wilshire is right.
But the . premise is not granted. The
Independent takes issue upon it. That
has been the doctrine of the republi
can party, the trades unions of Eng
land and of the trusts. Mr. Wilshire
goes even farther than any of these
and says that there can be an over
production of capital. The Indepen
der. t hoi Je that such a thing as over
production is an impossibility until
every want of every man and woman
is supplied. When all persons have
all the yachts, palaces, adornments,
carriages, automobiles, parks, pic
tures, and , everything else that they
desire find there are some of these
things left over that no one wants
there will be overproduction and not
before. This whole article rests upon
the use of the term "value." "So much
will be produced that none of it will
be valuable," says Mr. Wilshire. Now
value is human estimation placed upon
desirallc objects the amount of which
Is limited. There is no such thing as
an unlimited production of anything
and until there is, things will have
value. 1 he "price" will depend upon
the volume of money in circulation.
If it is true that the workers of this
nation can produce more wealth than
the peop'.e want, then socialism rests
upon the right basis. The concentra
tion cf wealth in few hands is not the
result of overproduction. It is the re
sult of 1hc granting of special priv
ileges, and gifts to the rich. The Van
derbilt fortune was made a gift to him
by the representatives of the people.
Tha gift of the-franchise of the New
York Central and Hudson River rail
road alone was a donation of over
$100,000,000. Other gifts of like na
ture are the foundation of most of the
great fortunes and the cause of the
concentration of wealth in few hands.
Social privileges not granted to other
shippers, is the foundation of the
Rockefeller fortune.
; But the great objection to socialism
is that it is impracticable, (The gov
ernmental Control of all production is
an impossibility.' One supply house in
New; York -offers for sale 170,000 dif-:
ferent articles. What government bu
reau could by any possibility provide
for the production of all these articles
and always have a supply' on hand?
And these 170,000 ; articles are but a
small part of the things that enter
into the commerce of that city alone.
For the production of many of them
careful arrangements have to be made
years in advance. What government
officer having no personal interest in
the production of these things would
or could look after all of them? Such
ability is so far above anything that:
any man has ever exhibited that It
appears to The Independent unreason
able. expect it "under, socialism."
The Independent would be glad to
print a letter from Mr.' Wilshire ex
plaining how "under socialism" as Mr.
Wayland says, such difficulties as
these are to be overcome. In the years
that are passed, it has often asked
Mr. Wayland and other socialists to
tell how it could be done, but not one
of them ever accepted the invitation.
Will Mr. Wilshire attempt it? Ed.
He's a Socialist
Editor Independent: I have re
ceived several copies of The Indepen
dent, but cannot conscientiously sub
scribe for It. My reasons are: First,
you advocate the government owner
ship of railroads; this would be in
the interest of middle-class farmers,
but the working class would not be
materially benefitted thereby. Sec
ondly, the populist party is ready to
fuse with the democrats at any time.
The democratic party is a capitalist,
party and as deadly an enemy of the
working class as is the republican par
ty. Thirdly, all the great industries
have reached or are reaching the mon
opoly state. In view of this fact, the
public ownership of the tools of pro
duction and distribution and the
means of communication and trans
portation Is the only solution of the
This you do not advocate. You are
against the trusts. Even if it were
possible to abolish "the trusts, - wage
slavery would still exist. - As Jong as
there are two classes in society, a
working class and an Idle class a
wealthy class and a poor class there
will always be class legislation. I
have lately taken up the study of so
cialism and have subscribed for the
daily People, official organ of the so
cialist labor party the only party that
stands for the interests of the working
class, worthy of consideration. In
future I-shall vote for the socialist
Fort Worth, Tex.
(Mr. McDonough's classification of
Eoclety Is certainly not an ideal one.
His ' "working class" seems to be
synonymous with a "propertyless
class." What is the farmer but a
workingman? Isn't the small mer
chant a workingman?
Yes, public ownership of the rail
roads would be a benefit to the "middle-class
farmers," but it would also
be a benefit to Mr. McDonough's
"working class" as well. - The work
ingmen employed by the govern
ment , In operating the rail
roads would stand on a par with our
postal employes now; their pay would
be good, hours reasonable, and term
of employment secure. The working
class generally would be benefitted
by the resulting l lower freight and
passenger rates; ;no one can doubt
that.' -v,:!".
How the After-Effects off This Disease
flay be Driven Away .,
Mr. Robert G. Yates, of No. 55 Clark
street, Dubuque, Iowa, was left miser
able with the after-effects of the grip
until be took Dr. Williams Pink Pills
for Pale People. They restored him to
perfect health. He tells the story as
"I was taken with the grip on Christ
mast Eve, 1890, and suffered f 1 om it
for three months. , When I was over
that, it left me a physical wreck. I
was restless and sleepless, with con
stant pains in my limbs. I fell away
in flesh, lost my appetite, was tired
out for no reason, and became general
ly miserable. : 4
"Finally, when things . were look
ing pretty blue. for me, one day I no
ticed a piece in the paper about a man
living in Kansas who had been cured
of a somewhat similar complaint of
some years' standing, by the use of
Dr. Williams Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple. So I decided to try them. I felt
better before I finished one box. I
kept on taking them and they Cured
me. Now I am past sixty-three years
of age; I enjoy perfect health and,
thanks to Dr. Williams' Pink ' Pills,
I can do a good . day's work again.
I am as hale and hearty as many men
much younger than I, have a splendid
appetite and can go to sleep a few
minutes after retiring. ;
"I might also add that before I be
gan taking Dr. Williams Pink Pills I
had suffered for about seventeen years
with rheumatism, but L have not felt
any of It since. They are a wonder
ful medicine and I have no doubt but
that they saved my life."
With each recurring epidemic of the
grip it is more evident that the dis
ease leaves' in its wake a train of stub
born ailments that often baffle the
skill of physicians. Loss of flesh, thin
blood, nervousness, shortness of
breath, exhaustion after slight exer
tionso that It is often difficult to
walk up stairs these are a few of the
symptoms of after-effects of the grip.
More serious results often follow and
grip has come to be regarded as the
highroad to pneumonia, bronchitis
and even consumption.

reaching the monopoly state. No great
industry has reached or will reach that
state without enjoying some sort of
special privileges. Special privileges
may arise either by public favoritism
or private favoritism. The railroads,
national banks, etc., enjoy" special
privileges arising from public acts
public laws. On the other: hand, the
Standard - Oil trust, for example owes
its existence and power largely to pri
vate favoritism;..., that is to say, the
railroads . giveJiffi - secret rebates in
freight sufficient to kill off practically
all competition v, JHere ... in Nebraska
this trust ! hasa Secondary advantage

of public favoritism given . Indirectly.
Monopoly is "that substantial unity
of action' on the part of one or more
persons engaged in some kind of busi
ness which gives;them-exclusive con
trol . . . with respect to price." Agri
culture Is certainly one of the great
industries, but it has not become mo
nopolized. There1 Is no substantial
unity of action on v the part of the
farmers. They have no exclusive con
trol over the price of their products.
Even the steel trust, big as it Is, lacks
something of being a complete monop
olyit has competitors. Take: away
the .protective tariff special privilege
it enjoys and it would not be so dan
gerous. Mere mass of capital does not
constitute monopoly there must be
unity of , action and control of price.

(Special . Correspondence.) Congress

even if it. cannot, be said that in all
cases these, results are beneficent. A
number'. of the big supply bills have
been passed: earlier than in. many
years. 3
The compromise irrigation bill has
passed the senate, 'while its fate in
the house is merely conjectural. The
bill as drawn apportions the benefits
to be derived from irrigation projects
to the ? inter-mountain states and will
have the effect of depriving Nebraska,
Kansas and other prairie states of the
natural flow of inter-state streams.
The only solution of the problem rests
in national control, rather than state
ccntrol as proposed by the bill, and it
is. the purpose of the fusion members
from Nebraska to attempt to have the
bill so amended in order that Ne
braska's interests may be protected
and the revenue derived from the sale
of public lands in Nebraska be devoted
to irrigation improvements within the
borders of our own commonwealth.

play the role of arbiter and is just

sort. At the McKInley memorial ex

objected to. this arrangement and has
made "? cp resentations" to the dis
tinguished British sympathizer who
officiates as premier in the Roosevelt
cabinet. Hay is inclined to agree with
Pauncefote, and so small and insigni

As an echo of. the administration's
persecution of Admiral Schley, a dozen
or more resolutions have been intro
duced in congress to do justice to the
hero of Santiago bay. The house com
mittee on naval affairs has refused by
a strict party vote . to report any of
these Measures for passage. Every re
publican on the committee voted to
sustain the action of the president and
the naval court of inquiry. , Every
democrat voted to report a measure
that wiii allow each branch of con
gress to express Its sentiments on the
question and show to the country
proper appreciation of Schley's ser
vices. The pleading of the congres
sional minority for justice to Schley
ha been in vain. The administration
lash has whipped the recalcitrants in
to line with the damnable cabal of
the naval clique of checker-board
strategists and tea-party fighters.
Secretary Root has urged the pass
age of a bill drafted by, war depart
ment officials the purpose of which is
to vest in bureaus and councils the
direction of the war powers and ob
viates the necessity for an executive
head of the army other than the presi
dent. General Miles was called before
the senate committee on military af
fairs, Thursday, and asked his opinion
In confidence of the proposed measure.
He denounced it as subversive of dis
cipline and the intelligent direction of
war authority and intimated that its
passRge would bring about a condition
such" as that obtaining in the navy de
partment, which is so repugnant to all
sense of decency and fairness and has
been largely responsible for the Schley
Miles' testimony before the commit
tee has created a sensation and the
president is considering a purpose to
dismiss " him from - the service; the
cabinet meeting Friday dealing entire
ly with the propriety of the course.
The breach between Roosevelt and
Miles is a wide one, beginning with
Miles' comment on the . Schley case
and later his offer to go to the Phil
ippines to prosecute the war and his
uummary rebuke by the president in
each case. -
The best opinions on the subject to
be had agree that the administration
course tends to persecution of Mile
and resentment is nearly as deep as
in the case of Schley. The fact that
Miles and Schley are both democrats
and that each Is a recognized brave
fighter, coupled with the fact that the
president studiously plays politics, ex
plains fully the situation as It now is.
The decision of the United States
supreme court holding that the Illi
nois anti-trust statute is unconstitu
tional, has the effect of declaring the
unconstitutionality of anti-trust laws
in thirteen of the states, of which Ne
braska is one. The court based its
decision on the ground that agricul
tural products and live stock were ex
empted from the law's provisions.
This decision ought to arouse the
people ta a sense of the futility of at
tempting to cope with private corpora
tions under present conditions and
the necessity for action that will intel
ligently and fully repress the tendency
of the modern trust to absorb every
trade and industry and force tribute
from the people.
The republican plan of attempting to
distinguish between good and bad
trusts is capable of but one applica
tion so long as the republicans re
main in power their vision, will be de
fective in the ratio that contributions
are made to the republican campaign
fund. '.
Do the American people really de
sire relief? Passivity and inactivity
will not bring it. .....
Secretary Hay refuses to offer any
explanation for his refusal to grant
passports to the man and wife who
offered their services to ameliorate the
appalling condition of the Boer pris
oners In Great Britain's murder camps
In South Africa. King Edward's rep
resentative in the state department
can give attention to the details of an
embassy to dance attendance upon a
court function, but a humane appeal
from an oppressed people falls on
ears that are deaf and a heart steeled
against justice.
By all the shades of the departed,
the most surprising proposition late
ly coming from republicans is the
proposition to place the monetary sys
tem of the Philippine islands on a
silver basis.
An agent of the Philippine commis
sion has appeared before the senate
cor-nittee to discuss the matter and
declares that the gold standard is in
advisable. Members of the committee
agree with him.
"A gold currency Is expensive and
hard to maintain." That is treason
to all the republican campaign
speeches since 1896! -
"A straight silver dollar Is merely
continuing the present currency and
is best for the country and for trade."

est money" and open rebellion against
