OLD TIME ENTHUSIASM
Sale of Liberty Building Cards Continues in a Most
Encouraging Manner. Independent Readers
PREPARING FOR THE FALL CAMPAIGN
Early State Convention In the Western Part of the State Recalls the Victor
ious Campaigns of the Past. Begin the Work in Your .
County at Once.
The meeting of the executive com
mittees of the peoples' party and dem
ocrats in this city last week to fix the
date and place for holding the state
, conventions thi3 year, brought to this
city many of the leaders in both par
ties from all parts of the state. Old
time enthusiasm was manifest every-
anxious for the campaign to begin.
All are confident of victory this fall
more confident than at any similar
meeting held for several years. The
result was a decision to have. an early
state convention, June 24, and the se
lection of a place as far west as pos
sible Grand Island. This will recall
to the minds of the old-time leaders
of the party many pleasant recollec
tions of enthusiastic conventions and
victorious campaigns. The disposi
tion and sentiment was to meet the
farmers as far west as possible in or
der that many of them might attend
the convention. It means more far
mer delegates in attendance it means
more laboring men in the councils of
the party and less lawyers and profes
sional politicians. Plans are being
made for an old-time educational cam
paign. Not only the party leaders
favor that kind of campaign, but th3
readers of The Independent under
stand the advantages of such a cam
paign. The sale of Liberty Building
cards helping to increase the circula
tion and influence of The Independent
continues in a most encouraging man
ner. . Orders are coming from ; every
county in the state and from every
state in the union. All realize that
there is no method of education so
cheap and effective as a weekly news
paper, honestly and ;fearlessly edited.
It is delivered each week, filled with
information and argument. It is
read by the fireside where the man's
political prejudice is at its lowest
point. It is in this manner that the
most lasting converts are made to the
cause of reform. The masses of the
people are naturally honest, but many
of them lack education along political
-lines Wh v Tint Rplprt. a few who are
blinded by prejudice and, induce them
to read The Independent for a year?
They will not read it long until they
will quit voting the republican ticket.
Let us send you a block of 5 of our
Liberty Building cards. You can sell
them easily. Many others have done
so and there is no reason why you
could not do as well if you will only
try. Here is what some who have tried
say about the work necessary. We
have many more like them, but space
will not permit of their publication.
All are appreciated none the less and
every assistant has our thanks.
WHILE WAITING. AT THE CREAM
I have taken five subscriptions while
waiting at the creamery for milk to
be separated. I send them herewith.
Please get them on this week's mail
ing list if possible. Send more cards,
as many as you please.
WOULD HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT.
I herewith enclose $3.00 in payment
for the 5 cards you sent me last week.
I sold all Within one hour after I re
ceived them. If The Independent had
been read in every family in the state
two years ago the people would have
been better instructed and Bartley
would still be attending to the hot'
house plants of the state penitentiary
and Savage would not be the owner
of that plantation down south, nor
be interested in that mining concern
in Colorado. Then the people of the
state would not have known that the
heavenly twins existed. But they will
learn by and by. Send me another
block of five. JOHN PETERS.
Peters, Neb. .
FROM THE PACIFIC COAST,

stant. Sold them in two days. En

more I .read, the better I like your

CIRCULATION OF MONEY
Is Money "SaYd" Taken out of Circula
tion ? Sarins: Dank Deposits
Editor Independent: In, your issue
of April 3 is an article by Mr. John
S. DeHart,. in answer to one Mr.
Adams, who wishes to rid the demo
cratic party of Mr. Bryan. With
nearly all of Bro. De Hart's deductions
I heartily agree, but there are two
points on which the dear brother has
failed to see the light, and, with your
permission, I should like to show' thj
brother an avenue down which he
never strolled. v
His first sentence: "It is a poor
time now to discuss the money ques
tion, because we already have plenty
of money." The second is: "If bv
chance too many greenbacks should be
issued. The second , point hardly
neeeds discussing at this time we can
always cross a bridge when we comj
The first point may not appear to
Bro. DeHart as it did when he wrote
his answer to Mr. Adams, if he will
follow the figures which 1 will now
give him.' In one of the late treasury
reports it is stated that there is ap
proximately $28 per capita hr circuta-

tion. Assuming for easy reckoning
that the population of this country is
eighty millions of peoole, this would
make a total of $2,240,000,000. Ac
cording to statistics there are five per
sons in the average family; dividing
80,000,000 by. 5, gives -16,000,000 fam
ilies. Allowing the head of each fam
ily to lay away $1 per week for a
rainy day would take $16,000,000 per
week out of circulation. Continued for
one year, or 52 week, would take $832,
000,000 out of circulation. Continuing
at. the same rate for two and sixty
nine hundredths years a period of
139.8S weeks would give every fam
ily in the United States $139.88 and
would take 16,000,000 times that
amount, , or $2,240,000,000 ; (nearly)
out of circulation. By studying these
figures Brother De Hart should be ablt
to see why a period of commercial ac
tivity and "general prosperity" is al
ways followed by dull times and busi
ness depression. As an example, one
of Andrew Carnegie's partners swore,
not very long ago, that Mr. Carnc!e
enjoyed an income .of $40,000,000 per
annum. Now, it should not take
Brother De Hart long to figure out that
somewhere in these United States are
1,428,571 people without a red cent on
account on account of that sum being
withdrawn from circulation, unless
Mr. Carnegie is spending his money
more freely than I have been led to
believe he does, or endows libraries
with larger sums than the papers give
him credit for. ' '
If Brother De Hart can find fault
with these figures, I wish he would
show me. GEO. P. BOLT,
J St. Louis, Mo.
Although Mr. De Hart has proven
himself fully capable of defending his
statements and taking care of himself
generally in discussions of this nature,
yet The Independent would suggest
to Mr. Bolt that money saved is not
necessarily taken out of circulation
What Is "circulation?" Is it the ac
tual act of passing from the hand of
the purchaser to the hand of the sel
ler, the hand of the debtor to the hand
or tne creditor; or has the term a
wider significance? Undoubtedly the
restricted definition is much too nar
row. The employe gets his "pay en
velope' Saturday night. Is that money
"out of circulation" until the precise
moment the employer hands the envel
ope to the employe? And does it then
pass "out of circulation" until the
employe pays his coal bill and grocery
bill, and circulates only at the pre
cise moment he hands the money over
to the coal dealer and the grocer?
Surely Mr. Bolt does not restrict the
term "circulation" to this narrow
But suppose we widen the field.
Where then shall the line be drawn?
Honey buried in the earth, hid in "old
stockings," laid away with the Inten
tion to hoard it and refrain from us
ing it until some indefinite time in
the future perhaps not for years is
undoubtedly "out of circulation.'
But money in the pockets of the peo
ple, intended for current use as oc
casion may require, even though
some of it might be carried a week or
more, is certainly "in circulation."
Unless the savings Mr. Bolt speaks
of should all be laid away in v some
receptacle at home, or buried in the
earth hoarded in fact, in i the real
sense of that' term the amount
saved would not go out of circulation
on that account. For example, the
savings banks of the United States
in July, 1901, had a total of $2,597,
000,000 in individual deposits, or more
than all the actual money in existence
in the United States. This vast sura
includes just such savings as Mr.
Bolt refers to. But money "laid by for
a rainy day" soon ceased to be money
in the hands of the savers and was
transformed into credits by being de
posited in the savings banks for
"money in the bank" isn't money at
all, but a debt the banker owes the
depositor. And the savings banks did
not hoard the deposits as they were
received they loaned the money on
real estate securities, bonds, etc., and
it went right out into "circulation
again." It might happen that the
same man would on different weeks
deposit the same identical silver dol
lar in his savings bank. He could
have a "saving" of ten dollars laid
by for a rainy day and yet save the
same coin ten different times.
Of course if every man who saves
a dollar should hide it in the feather
tick at home, Mr. Bolt's problem
would work out; and to a limit ex
tent money Is hoarded in just that way.
But the vast majority of savings are
soon transformed into some form of
credit, so that interest may be earned,
and the actual coins originally saved
keep on in circulation. Even with his
forty millions of income a year, Mr.
Carnegie doubtless does not carry any
more actual money than the average
workingman. It is not the money he
takes out of circulation that causu-3
distress; it is his power to draw to
himself of the products of lalor
amounting to forty millions a year
without rendering any equivalent
therefor. Assuming that the average
man can, at present wages, maintain
himself and family and save $40 a
year, Mr. Carnegie absorbs the sav
ings of a million people every year.
12 he did not do it, they might save
$80 a year instead of $40. Editor In

Following close, upon the heels of
a scathing arraignment of the abso
lute depotism of the rules of the house
made by F. W. Cushman, a republi
can congressman from Washington,
the house Friday administered to the
republican leaders the sternest rebuke
known in recent legislative history.
For two weeks the debate has pro
gressed on the Cuban reciprocity bill
and with considerable acrimony, par
ticularly on the majority side of the
chamber. The first real breach in tha
republican party in years is, In fact
directly traceable tor the discussion -o
the question of reciprocity.
During the two weeks, Henderson,

Friday's action Is a defeat for Presi
dent Roosevelt,, for it was at his com
mand that-the ways and means com
mittee formulated the bill. ,
Promptly at 3 o'clock,, upon the con
clusion of Dajzelrs speech for the bill,
ine , committee amendments were
agreed to In gross without division
in committee of the : whole, i Tawney
of Minnesota secured the floor and
yielded to ? his colleague, -Mr. Morris,
who submitted the following amend
ment, in behalf of the "insurgent"- re
publicans, to remove the differential
from refined sugar:
"Upon the making . of . said agree
ment and the issuance of said procla
mation, and while said agreement shall
remain, in force, there shall be levied,
collected aid paid, in lieu of the du
ties thereon now provided by law on
all sugars above No. 16 Dutch, stand
ard in coLor, and on all sugar which
nas.gone through a process of refin
ing, imported into the United States,
l cent and;,825 of,l cent per pound."
Payne made a point "of order against
the amendment that it was not ger
mane,, and the chairman sustained the
point of order after an appeal upon
Payne's part to the republicans to
stand by the rules of the house. .
The fight was on. Tawney promptly
appealed from the decision of , the
chair and on a vote by tellers, the de
cision of . the, chair was overruled by a
vote of 171 to 130. - ,
Cries pfxultation rang (throughout
the chamber during one of the most
dramatic scenes in- a quarter of a cen
tury t of congressional history. The
democrats,t; with -the populists, stand
ing,., at 5 their .desks, applauded and
shouted, and cheered the forty-odd rer
publicans whohad voted to overrule.
What the verdict would be was clear
ly settled. . The supreme decision un
der the Reed rules, from which there
is no appeal thad been. rendered. A de
potism had been broken down and
the first move made toward a shifting
of republican leadership.
.Every democrat and populist, with
out a single exception, joined the "in
surgent" republicans, and gave an ex
hibition of , political finesse and good
generalship, not to be excelled. (
, A', roll call on the Tawney amend
ment showed every democrat and pop
ulist and 64, republicans voted aye the
same being', adopted 199 to 105.
The bill,;. as thus amended, passed
247. to 52.: ' , y
The democrats and populists deserve
the credit for delivering a body blow
to the sugar trust. They attempted
to follow up this advantage by lower
ing the duty von other trust-manufac
tured , products notably Iron, steel,
etc., but the "insurgents" refused to
join with . them ' in this effort. The
democrats could get no assistance for
a move fori, general revision . of the
perniciously liigh Dingley tariff sched
ules. . . '
The significance of this republican
rout is. believed : to be far-reaching
and probably presages the defeat of
the entire bill in the senate. Promi
nent members of the house declare it
Will seriously affect " party discipline
among republicans and likely pre
vent any sort of harmonious r action
during the remainder of this session.
Some even . go so far as - to advocate
the passage of appropriation as .. rap
idly as possible and then adjourning,
without - any further attempt at gen
eral legislation. . ,
The situation may be summed up
as having been a democratic field day,
and demonstative of the power of a
united and,; aggressive minority. It
will go far. toward bringing' about
democratic victory this fall and a dem
ocratic majority in the next house.
sThe question of imperialism is still
to the fronts ' No sooner had the de
tails of the . Waller court martial gone
out to the world than it developed
that the administration had suppressed
an official report of Major Corneliu3
Gardener, acting civil governor of Tay
abas. P. I., as follows: ,
V'The course now being pursued in
this province tand V in the provinces
of Batanzas, jLaguna and Samar is,
in my opinion, sowing seeds for a per
petual., revolution against us hereaf
ter whenever good "opportunity ofV
fers." n'';:.K,: - j . -
"I believe that the people of Tayabas
province are in every way superior
in education, Intelligence, morals and
civilization to the peoplerof Tamauli-
pas (Mexico) or Santa Clara (Cuba.).'
Commenting upon this report and
the Waler court martial, the New York
Evening Post ,Rep.) says:
"We have no doubt whatever that
the feeling of every American , who
reads the horrible news from the Phil
ippines is one of burning shame.
Our army is disgraced and our national
name is smirched by the terrible revela
tions of the Waller court martial.
"Imperialistic newspapers may hid-j
the dispatches away on an Inside page,
and say never a word about them edi
torially, but there the damning facts
stand in the record of the court.
"Our troops in the Island of Samar
have beei pursuing a policy of whole
sale and deliberate murder. They
have made of their war simply "the
hired assassin's trade." And four
United States officers testify that Gen
eral Smith, chief in command in that
island, ordered the practical extermi
nation of the inhabitants.
" 'Kill and burn' were his directions
to Major Waller, 'and make Samar a
howling wilderness.' Asked if thet'd
was to be any age limit for killing, he
answered so it is sworn, 'Everything
Such was to be the fate of the island
third in size of the whole archipelago,
with 200,000 professing Christians
dwelling on it. And an American gen
eral plumes himself on the fact that
he ordered the massacre of only the-
greater part of the population, and
did not dash their little - ones against
a stone!" .,
Let Nebraska republicans ponder on
these facts , as set forth in their own
papers. H. W. RISLEY.
The populist and democratic execu
tive committee met at the Lincoln ho
tel Wednesday might and selected
Grand Island as the place for the next
convention and the date June 24, 1902,
at 3 o'clock P. M. The populist ap
portionment will be based on the vote
for Governor Poynter in 1900, and the
democratic on that given W. D. Old
ham for attorney .general. The offi
cial call will be published next week.
The supreme court has granted the
writ of mandamus in the Omaha tax
case, which is a victory for the peo
ple against the corporations. The
opinion was written by Judge Sedg
wick, and will be noticed more at
length next week.
What is the matter with all the
prominent republicans? They are con
stantly announcing that they will not
be candidates for any office "this
year." Judge Hamer was in the city
last week and very emphatically made
understood that the statement was for
"this year." After the fusion forces
get through with " the republicans in
the coming campaign, he will prob
ably feel the same way next year.
"The San, Francisco Chronicle plumes
Itself upon the fact that "nearly a
quarter of a century ago California
provided by her constitution that
'franchises' should be assessed as other
property." That's easy. Twenty-seven
years ago Nebraski provided in her
constitution that "every person and
corporation shall pay a tax in propor
tion to the Value of his, her or its
property and franchises." But the
legislatures of the state have not shown
very good judgment in getting at the
values of franchises, although the con
stitution says , that such, values shall
be "ascertained in such manner as
the legislature shall direct."

The three fusion state officers who
have been charged with misdoing were
all tried before partisan republican
committees or courts and declared "not
guilty." The Independent wishes to
ask the democratic and populist edit
ors who still insist that these men
were guilty, to stop for a moment and
consider whether such Insistance is
aiding the fusion party or the repub
licans. All charges that these officers
ever embezzled one cent of money be

Public opinion says that the New
York Herald is the banner-bearer in
the campaign against the beef trust,
and that the Herald claims "to have
discovered indubitable evidence of an
agreement' among the large packers
to maintain prices and to blacklist
dealers who violate' the conditions im
posed upon them." The Pittsburg
Times ascribes the rise to natural con-
tions. rne rnnaaeipnia Times
says "the explanation is in the
undue advantage which the trust en-
oys through railway favoritism ana
through absolute immunity from for
eign competition." The Detroit Free

Commenting on an editorial in Th3
Commoner of April 4, relative to the
Declaration of Independence, the edi
tor of Economy, Solon, Iowa, says:
"It is not at all surprising to the
student of modern history that thn
truths set forth in this declaration are
even yet disputed by the descendants
of those who set them forth. The ap
plications of these truths to the na
tions of the world as well as in our
own nation is yet in its primary or
dawning period. But they shall pre

I don't know how to pay up just at
this time. -I am a farmer . In this
drouthy country and most of us have
raised but very little for three or four
years. I am ashamed to think , that
I have read your paper so long with
out paying up. I like your Idea of
a liberty building where you can!v
secure from the; grasp of monopoly
and where you , can publish the truth
and send it out to the people. This
is a poor place to get subscribers for
a paper, but I will try to sell five of
your postals and get my account paid
up in time for the liberty building
fund. R . E. DIVINE.
