    NO ONE DARE PROSECUTE
The danger that lies in great accum
ulations of wealth in few hands has a
demonstration in the state of Penn
sylvania ; at r the present time from
which the public ought to draw a les
son. The anthracite coal trust is an
organization in direct violation of the
laws of that state andjts recent ac
tion has caused great loss and dis
turbance of business in which a large
portion of the public Is" directly inter
ested. But on account of the power of
its accumulations, there is no man in
the state who dare bring an action
against it The monopolization of the
anthracite coal beds by a few railroad
corporations whose charters do not
authorize them to do anything but
build and operate railroads, is in di
rect violation of their charters. The
coal barons are the most notorious law
breakers in the whole country, but
they dominate the courts and override
the laws because of their great wealth.
The accumulations under the con
trol of Morgan are a threat against
the national government itself. He
has already cowed the president of
the United States who but a short
time ago was bravely talking about
shackling cunning and controlling the
trusts, but is now out on a stumping
tour in which he declares that they are
a necessary evolution of modern busi
ness. The accumulations in the con
trot of the sugar trust were powerful
enough to overthrow the president ir.
a senate largely of his own party and
defeat a measure which he especially
recommended.
These conditions ,are what the pop
ulist party has fought from the be
ginning and the results are just what
was predicted. The creation of wealth
13 one thing and its equitable and
proper distribution is another thing.
Upon the latter depends the welfare
of a nation as much as on the former.
Great wealth has destroyed many na
tions, but poverty never one.
PENNSYLVANIA AND POPULIST
Quay and Penrose made an effort the
other day to settle the coal strike
and they were told by Mr. Baer and
the other barons that the statement
made to them by the two senators that
if the strike was not settled the state
of Pennsylvania would go democratic,
had no terrors for them. In fact Baer
declared that he was a democrat. The
democratic candidate for governor is
the anti-Bryan Robert E. Pattison and
evidently his election would suit the
coal barons just as well as that of the
republican candidate. The anthracite
coal roads are the most open violators
of law in the whole land. They have
been operating for a long time in vio
lation of their charters and the laws
of Pennsylvania, in having added to
the business of their corporations the
mining of coal. Their charters are
railroad charters authorizing them to
build and operate railroads and for
nothing else. The republican machine
has allowed this violation of law in re
turn for the support and contributions
of the trust, but now having secured
an anti-Bryan candidate for the demo
cratic party, the interests of the trusts
are no longer bound up with the suc
cess of the Quay machine. The an
nouncement of Baer that he was a
democrat probably accounts for the
assaults made upon him in the repub
lican dailies, all of them having
pitched into him for the announce
ment of his "Me and God" partner
ship. Under the conditions in Pennsyl
vania, both candidates being of the
trust and plutocratic brand, the pop
ulist party, which has always had an
organization there and maintains it to
this day, in spite of the Wharton
Barker-Clem Deaver gang, should poll
a much larger vote than usual.
PRINCIPLES, NOT MEN
It is a shrewd practice of the pluto
cratic press to discuss men and not
principles, for in that way the real
causes of the evils to which the people
object are kept concealed. Thirty
years ago attention was concentrated
on Jay Gould. His doings and say
ings, his goings and comings, filled the
papers week after week and month af
ter month. When not engaged in that
they filled up their space with stories
of the Vanderbilts, Jim Fisk and other
lesser lights of the same galaxy. Now
it is Morgan, Jim Hill, Gates and men
of that kind to which attention is di
rected. Sometimes the stories about
them are frivolous, sometimes of their
extravagances and sometimes consist
of the severest denunciations. But of
the system that has made such crea
tures possible they say nothing. Mor
gan, Baer and Truesdale may be de
nounced in columns of invective, they
may be called all the approbious

names which the English language af
fords, but they care nothing for that.
Probably they rejoice in the notoriety
that it gives them. What would stir
them would . be a denunciation of the
laws and policies that have enabled
them to accumulate the enormous for
tunes that they own. An attack upon
the system that has made them pos
sible 5 would be an entirely different
thing from ant attack upon them. Such
an attack the great dailies never make.
They amuse and entertain the multi
tude with stories of the personality
of the great financial magnates and
the multitude seems satisfied with
that.
The Vanderbilts, the Morgans, the
Gates will pass away, but the system
will remain and produce others like
them. The attacks upon them are like
the attacks of the anarchists upon
rulers. The ruler may be slain, but
the system is unchanged and another
takes' hig place. If the press of the
United States would drop this discus
sion of the doings of the immensely
rich and devote its space to discus
sion of principles instead of men, a
solution of the problems that vex us
might be reached. But the press
largely depends for its success upon
the favors' of the rich and while that is
so it will never attack special priv
ileges, exemption from taxation or at
tempt to curtail the aggressions of the
corporations. If any effective attack
is ever made upon these men, it will
be by papers like The Independent
which discuss principles rather than
men and those who are in favor of ov
erthrowing these men by discontinu
ing the special privileges which they
enjoy, can do no more effective work
than sending The Independent into the
homes of those who have never re
ceived a paper that discusses prin
ciples. NEW CORPORATION TRICK
The corporations in several different
states have hit upon the plan of pick
ing out for the principal candidates of
the republican party unknown men
men with no public record. Who ever
heard of Mickey outside of his own
immediate neighborhood until Attor
ney Baldwin announced ten days be
fore the convention that the railroads
had agreed upon him as their candi
date for governor? Who ever heard
of the unspeakable Dietrich outside of
Hastings and the places where he had
lived until he was nominated for gov
ernor by the railroad convention. That
too had all been fixed beforehand, al
though the selection was not an
nounced in advance. Within ten min
utes after Dietrich was nominated,
hundreds of photographic buttons with
his portrait and candidacy j imprinted
thereon were distributed all over the
city. The railroads having made
their choice in advance and "fixed"
the thing prepared the buttons before
the convention met. Nominations are
never left to chance by the railroads.
Every officer that can in any way- ef
fect their interests is selected before
the republican convention meets, and
the delegates to republican conven
ions, who are all furnished with free
transportation, never take any active
interest' or make any disturbance.
Neither does the ordinary voter of the
republican party. He Just votes 'er
straight.
In every community there are, how
ever, several prominent men who do
take an active Interest in the success
of the party. They are personally in
terested in its success. A very few on
account of the offices; but a much
larger number on account of the spe
cial privileges that they get from the
railroads. There, isn't a town in the
stf-te where there are less than half
a dozen men of this kind. Many of
them are active in church work and
in the secret benevolent societies.
These men are always on duty. They
get up meetings, they distribute litera
ture, they attend caucuses and con
ventions and they are paid for their
work by favors on the railroads. That
is the thing that we are up against in
this campaign. Is there enough un
selfishness and patriotism among the
fusion forces to meet that thing? You !
must pay your own transportation to
conventions and political meetings.
You must donate what time you giVe
to political work, and expect no other
reward than what will come to you in
common with all other citizens in se
curing good government and preserv
ing the common school fund.
. The supreme couri of Vermont has
decided that a contract made with an
editor in which a consideration In
money is paid for the support of a
candidate for office is void and against
good public policy. The question now
is: "How are the republican editors
of tha state to make a living?" If the
principle is carried into other states
the whole republican press will be
k ruined.
When the photographers tried to get
a snap shot at Morgan upon his return
from Europe, he not only employed a
detective to shield him from the cam
eras, but declared he would not have
his photograph- taken for $5,000,000.
Morgan was Tight. One look at that
brutal, prize-fighting face by the Am
erican people would; cost Morgan more
than $5,000,000. This writer saw It
once and had a chance to study it for
fully ten minutes.
. RAILROAD BKOOABS
When a ' republican expresses fear
that making the great railroad owners
pay taxes upon the full value of their
roads in Nebraska will be an' injustice
and bring the said owners to distress,
show him the account 6t the Vander
bllt ball which appears in another col
umn of this issue of this paper. If
the Vanderbilts had been forced to pay
their just share of taxes, perhaps they
might have been compelled to cut out
the cake-walk or the coon songs, but
not more than that. But if the repub
lican still is fearful that the great
railroad owners will be distressed if
they are forced to pay the same rate
of taxes as evry one else, he might
be referred to the account written by
Julian Ralph, which is also printed
In r art in this issue, concerning the
way they carry on at Saratoga. Per
haps they might be forced to bet more
lightly on the races or put up smaller
sums at roulette, but would that ren
der It necessary for the farmers of Ne
braska to pay the taxes for the -railroad
owners? Couldn't the Vander
bilts, the Goulds and the rest of that
crowd better endure cutting out a
cake-walk at a party, or do a little less
batting on the races, than that the
Nebraska farmer should scrimp In a
thousand ways so as to get the money
to pay taxes for the Goulds and Van
derbilts? Every one who reads knows
what the railroads of Nebraska are
worth on the market just as well as
they know the value of a farm. Will
it bring urendurable suffering upon
the railroad magnates to make them
,-ay taxes on the same rate of valua
tion? If one of the Vanderbilts was
forced to cut off $5,000 from the cost
of a $100,000 ball on account of pay
ing their just share of taxes, would
that be an unendurable infliction?
Should that be a good reason why we
should put the republican party in
power in this state so that we could
pay a part of the taxes for them?
Really new, is it true that the railroad
owners are in such a condition that we
should make a contribution to them
of half the amount of their taxes? If
they are. then the proper thing to do
is Tote the republican ticket, for if
the republican candidates are elected
you will have to donate the money all
right. The railroad officials are beg
ging for just such contributions for
their poverty-stricken masters.
flENERAt MIIES
A good deal of comment has been
printed in the papers about the visit
of General Miles to the Philippines,
much of it on a level with the silly
twaddle that constantly appears in the
dailies. The facts so far as made pub
lic are as" follows:' General Miles
made application some months ago
for permission to visit the Philippines
which was rejected by Root and the
rejection indorsed by the president
Recently he renewed his request. This
request the war department refuses to
give out, but the answer to it was made
public, It was as follows:
War Department, Aug. 26, 1902.
Sir: I have the honor to state
that yoUr application for author
ity to inspect that portion of the
army serving In the Philippines is
approved by the president. You
will sail about the 15th of Sep
tember, and in inspecting the con
dition of the army will give partic
ular attention to its instruction,
discipline and to supplies of all
kinds.
It is announced that the officers in
the Philippines, inferior in rank to
General Miles, have been instructed to
pay no attention to any orders issued
by the lieutenant general and com
mander of the army of the United
States while he is in the islands. It
is added that General Miles will crit
ically examine the conditions as he
finds them, devoting his attention en
tirely to matters of army administra
tion and not to political affairs, and
the results of his work will be em
bodied in a set of reports.
The situation is such as was never
known in the world before. If General
Chaffee or General Davis, who is to
succeed Chaffee, should take a notion
to put General Miles under arrest or
expell him from the islands, under
these orders they would have the au
thority to do so. The orders are a
sort of Rooseveltian opera bouffe.
MAKES ONE WONDKR
The school fund has always been a
mine of great richness for the repub
licans whenever they have been in
power. They farmed out the school
lands to republican workers all over
the state, who got them free, and when
the fusion government came into pow
er it was an easy matter, though the
times were hard, to double the appor
tionment to the schools simply by
making these republican workers pay
up, which Uncle Jake proceeded to do.
Bartley stole the school fund and got
caught at it, but a republican governor
pardoned him without Bartley making
any restitution. Millard, the republi
can senator, handled $200,000 of the
stolen funds and paid them over to
Bartley when he knew that the mon
ey did not belong to Bartley, but to
the school children of Nebraska.- The
republicans rewarded Millard for that
deed , by sending him to the United
States senate. Now they come before
the people of the state and ask them to
elect a lot of fellows to state offices
who are engaged in selling "the school

Miss A. Brady, Corresponding Secre

from 2725 Indiana avenue, Chicago, 111. :
"Last year from continued strain in
literary work I became very much ex
hausted, my nerves seemed to give

Mrs. Fanny Klavadatscher, of Sum
mitsville, N. Y., writes as follows:
"For three months I suffered with
pain in the back and in the region of the
kidneys, and a dull pressing sensation
in the abdomen, and other symptoms of
pelvic catarrh.
" But after taking two bottles of Peru

and sensible,, -sane men would rather
bear the ills they have than flee to
those they know not of.
The discussion now going on in The
Independentbetween Messers, De Hart
and Van, Vorhis.as to what, constitutes
the "unit of money" bids fair to be of
intc-3e interest to our readers. For
the present the editor will be an In
terested spectator as to the unit ques
tion, reserving his remarks for another
time, but he would like a word as to.
the price level. Mr. De Hart refers
brieflv to Mr. Van Vorhis' reference
to the "level of values" and says, "I
would like to show that while there
may be a level of prices, higher or
lower, there cannot be a level of val
ues, higher r, or lower." This simply
means that "price" is "value named
in terms of money" and that a rise in
the price level can mean nothing else
than an increase in the supply of mon
ey; or that a fall in the price level
means a decrease in the supply of
money. Undoubtedly there is more
wealth in the United States today than
there was a hundred years ago, and at
first blush one would think that would
show a higher lavel of values but
there is no way of describing that in
crease in wealth without resort to
money terms, and when that is done
we have to do with prices.
The republican party has invented a
new way of starvation that beats re
concentration camps of the Weyler
kind two to one. It is to capture some
millions of people, cut them off from
free trade to the country to which
they befonged, bar them out of this
country by prohibitive tariffs and just
leave them to languish and die. That
is a different sort of statesmanship
from what the world ever saw before.
For the millions that are made sub
ject to such a policy there is no hope.
It is somewhat slower than the con
centration camp, but its effect is pre
cisely the same.
Gates and the steel trust have been
foiled in their attempt to get the Colo
rado Fuel and Iron company, but the
fight is not over by any means. The
calamities predicted if the -trust suc
ceed? are enumerated by the Denver
News as follows: "The absorption of
the Colorado Fuel and Iron company
into the steel trust and such disposi
tion by the trust of the great Colorado
industries owned by the fuel com
pany as will result in the greatest
profit to the trust. If that means the
stoppage of the mills and mines owned
by the fuel company, the discharge of
12,00.0 or 15,000 employes, the decay
of the communities built up about the
company's many enterprises why,
away they go, for the trust cares not a
fig about Colorado or any other sate
except as using them will put money
in its purse." This sort of business"
goes on all over the United States un
checked by any influence from Wash
ington or elsewhere. But Littlefleld
is going to introduce a bill into the
next house If it Is republican, to sup
press the trusts, and the only thing to
do is to vote 'er straight.
"CHARACTKB!"
The president in his "swing around
the circle" indulges In many moral
platitudes. At Wilimantic he said:
"It Is a good thing for a nation
to demand in its representatives
intellect, but it is a better thing
to demand in them that sum of
qualities which we, talk of as char
acter." Compare that qualification for pub
lic office with the men the party of the
president actually selects! Quay, Elk
ins, Penrose, Piatt, Dietrich. - They
run the whole gamut from bar-room
speakers (walk up and have something
at my expense) to the very doors of
the penitentiary as in the case of Elk
ins. "The qualities we talk of as
character!" Think of the "character"
of the men whom the republican party
have chosen to rule Nebraska! Prout,
surrounded by railroad attorneys, as
he appears before the supreme court,
when a man of "character" would be
defending the interests of the people
instead of joining with hired ' attor
neys in an effort to make , the people
pay the taxes that the railroads ought
to pay. -Think of the "character" of
the governor as he writes pardons for
Bartley and clerical bigamists! It
makes a decent man sick at the stom
ach when he thinks of the "character"
of the leading men of the party that
the president would keep .in office. Mr.
President, words are good things, but
acts are better.
TRUST DIVIDENDS
Colonel Bowlby in Crete Democrat
calls attention to a statement in the
Wall. street Journal regarding the divi
dends declared by the Standard Oil
trust. The figures follow:
Up to 1895 12 per cent
1896 31 per cent.
1897 33 per cent.
1898 30 per cent.
1899 ; 33 per cent.
1900 48 per cent.
1901 48 per cent.
1902 (a) 30 per cent.
Total 265 per cent
(a) Only two dividends up to May 6.
Wonderful to relate, this concern
which has paid nearly 40 per cent divi
dends per year since and including
'96, does not owe its prosperity alone
to the reputed mothers of trusts tariff
. or to "economy of production," but
almost solely to its special privileges
received from the railroads. A re
finery costing not more than half a
million dollars can turn out just as
good oil as the. trust does perhaps
better than some of the Lima oil that
comes to Nebraska but it couldn't be
run except at a loss, because in the
city where it is located the trust would
sell oil below cost of production, and
every other city would be cut off by
the prohibitive railroad rates that it.
would be compelled to pay.
The poor toil from morning until
night in the mines, the factories, the
shops and on the farms and the rich
waste the wealth that they create in
barbaric splendors, vices and carous
als such as are described by Julian
Ralph in another column of this issue.
The church and the press are silent
ex:ept now and then a paper like The
Independent. What will the end of it
all be?
Whether the railroads pay their just
share of the taxes or not is a small
question in comparison with the ques
tion whether the school fund of this
state shall be dissipated by a lot of
republican politicians with Prout at
their head. While we have good crops
and high prices we can pay the taxes
for the railroads and exorbitant freight
charges, but can we afford to bring
up the children in ignorance?
The Independent has frequently
drawn attention to the bargain made
by Mark Hanna with the Mormon
bishops whereby the electoral vote of
that state was transferred to the re
publican party for the consideration
that polygamy should not be interfered
with. The Mormons put absolute
faith in the contract and sent a poly
gamist to congress bearing a demo
cratic tag. A general protest drove
him out of the house, but the remain
der of the contract is being carried
out by the-republican party to the
letter. Polygamy is as open and no
torious in Utah as ever. The canting
preachers who made such a fuss about
it when it was for the interest of the
republican party to do so are silent
In a recent Associated "press dispatch
this paragraph occurs as an ordinary
news item. "Celia Dibble Roberts, one
of the plural wives of B. R. Roberts,
who was expelled from congress be
cause of his polygamous relations, has
contributed another pair of twins to
the family."
