Special Washington Letter.
YIIE lion. Joe Quitter Manley of
J I Maine Is hedging strongly on
the approaching election with
very cheap sour grapes
ffame. Manley predicts a Republican
majority in the house of thirty-five (at
present it is forty-three), and then with
a face as solemn as an ass he says:
While the Republicans will make a
strenuous fight in : every district where
they have any show whatever, still It
must be admitted that it will be far bet
ter for the Republican party In the presi
dential contest of 1904 if it should lose the
present house of representatives, and this
Is apparent to every one.
Just think of it! Fighting strenuous
ly for something they don't want J Of
course this can mean nothing except
that Manley expects defeat for the Re
publicans and is making a soft spot on
which to alight. Brother Manley is
cot alone in this view, for other lead
ing Republican statesmen have blown
the same whistle.
His "Dear, Dead Friend."
There Is no more representative type
of southern gentleman than those to be
found in Atlanta, and no name' is bet
. ter kno.n i that city than that of
Major Livingston . MIms. His body
servant, an old Colored man named
Richard Henry, died the other day and
was buhed from the colored folks'
church. A great many white people
attended the funeral, and the pastor of
the church called on Major MIms for
some remarks. He made the remarks,
and I would like every Massachusetts
man who wishes to stir up a little
strife between the whites and the
blacks down south to read what the
major said. Here it is:
Tour call on me to speak on this occa
sion was certainly unexpected, and yet
while so heartily commending all that
has been so feelingly and eloquently said
-in reference to my dear dead friend my
friend of more than a third of a century
I cannot refrain from expressing the gen
uine grief and sorrow that his death has
occasioned me; indeed a sorrow that my
entire family shares, and I know. too. it
will be felt by the large number of his
friends and mine who knew him so well In
the connection he had with the business
in which I have been engaged for so many
years, and I might add his many white
friends in this city who respected and ad
mired him for the splendid qualities that
he possessed. He was ever doing charity
and kindness to all sorts of people. He
was indeed a model husband and father, a
g-ood citizen, a loyal and devoted friend
and a Christian gentleman.
To me his offices of concern and thought
fulness were constant and grateful.
In the course of-nature he should have
survived me, and I always felt that If he
did there was no living man on whom I
could better rely for kindness and care for
my family. ,
I can point to no one whose daily life
and character afford a better and more
commendable example to all men to emu
late than this '
He well deserves all the comforts, bless
ings and promises of the holy relision he
professed and which the distinguished
reverend clergy has on this solemn occa
sion so ably administered.
I care not, though, for creeds In that un
known country "from whose bourne no
traveler returns." and to which his pure
spirit tends, for I feel that the good man
who sleeps In all the awful majesty of
death In yonder coffin carries with him
acceptable credentials to all the happiness
that pertains to mortals after death.
Major Minis and his. people were
slave owners, and the above fitly rep
resents the real feeling of that class
toward the former bondmen.
The Tariff Reform Row Again.
That tariff row is still hot, especially
in Iowa. The Cummins tariff revision
men and the Henderson antirevision
crowd are still at each other's throat.
The following editorial . utterance of
the Washington Post is very interest
ing: The maximum of smoke from the mini
mum of fire is a problem that has been
solved by the Iowa Republicans with the
Innocent looking little tariff and trust
plank that they chucked. Into their plat
form. It seemed as harmless as a boy's
popgun with Its paper ammunition, but Its
report has been "heard around the
world. and "its wild reverberations, as
of thunder In the mountains." are still
haklng the continent. How far Into the
future Its Influence may penetrate and
what will be the final summing up of its
effects on the destinies of parties who
would venture to predict?
Governor Cummina and his faction were
credited with a gTeat victory in securing
the adoption of tnat plank, and they are.
In some quarters, charged with the re
sponsibility of having exploded the mine
that blew Speaker Henderson off the
track. It Is therefore a matter of some
Interest to find out from the governor Just
what that plank means and why he sup
ports it. Here is his explanation, which
seems clear enough:
"What I have tried at various times to
say is this: A monopoly, whether estab
llshed by a trust partnership or individual.
Is cot entitled to the benefit of tariff du
ties and that if this were the law It
""would have some effect In preventing the
creation of monopolies.
"It is not necessary to the business of
the country that . monopolies shall exist,
' and ambitious men should be Informed
and the tariff. Ton can be sure they will
choose the oourse most profitable to
That is very mild compared with the
utterance of Mr. Babcock when he
mounted bis antitrust tariff reform
charger and boldly set himself afield to
attack the citadels of protected monopo
lies. The governor's statement compares
with some of the Babcock Interviews as
bins sklmmllk with hot scotch.
: The governor does not positively assert
that there are any protected monopolies.
HOT Is there any such assertion In that
mild mannered platform. - Both the plat
form and the governor point rather to the
. future than the present, to prevention
Vtber than cure. They seem anxious to

could be cured by tariff amendments.

do believe Is that monopolists ought not to
be protected. In that belief the voting
masses, regardless of party lines, are with
them, and no man who disputes that
proposition can be a consistent friend of
The idea that the Republican party can
not make a revision of tariff schedules on
protection lines that will dislodge protect
ed monopolies without ruining our Indus
tries is a libel on that party. It looks too
much like an admission a fake conclu
sionthat the cancer of monopoly has
gained such hold on the patient that it is
too late for surgery.
Washington Post Versus Globe-Democrat.
The Washington Post says:
That kind of optimism which results
from ignoring disagreeable facts thrills
the soul of our true blue Republican con
temporary, the St. Louis Globe-Democrat,
so upliftingly that it exalts its voice in
glorification of the "harmony" now exist
ing in the Q O. P. It finds "the Repub
lican line intact" and sees in every direc
tion "evidences that the Republican lead
ers are acting in harmony on all the
great questions." One of those "evi
dences" la the fact that "Speaker Hender
son takes occasion to tell the country
that he is in line with the president and
all the rest of the real leaders of the
party on the tariff and all other questions
of any consequence."
Yes; no doubt the G.-D. is correct in
referring to all of this broadcast har
mony in the G. O. P. with so much con
fidence, but the Post sharply takes is
sue and calls attention to the pretty
row started by the withdrawal of Hen
derson, the wrangle over the coal strike
in the east, the imbroglio In Massachu-'
setts, where Mr. Foss is running for.
congress as a Republican on a free
trade platform and denouncing the
heaven born Lodge as a chatterer of
torn 111 yrot.
In Massachusetts most of the Repub
lican congressmen are talking tariff i
revision. The state platform is the oth
er way. This is harmony indeed. And
here is more of It: The Liberty league
has Just had a meeting In Washing
ton. Many, if not most, of its members
have been lifelong Republicans, such
as ex-Senator John B. Henderson of
Missouri. In this meeting resolutions
were passed condemning the Republic
an policies and indorsing the Demo
cratic candidates for office throughout
the country. j
Without going further it can easily
be seen that this complacency of the
Globe-Democrat is made of very thin

General Sumner of the United States

Ignoring the Law.
The Hon. Richard Olney. who was
secretary of state under Cleveland,
made a speech in Boston the other
night in which he lambasted the Re
publican administration in a way that
warms the cockles of the heart. It is,
furthermore, evidence that the De
mocracy is getting together in better
shape than at any time since 1S92.
This is traceable in great degree to the
utter disregard for the rights of the peo
ple shown by the Republican party.
Its policy made the trusts, and it has
now become their creature. It is the
old story of the man who took some
pieces of wood and iron and put them
together so as to fashion a devil out of
them, but when he had the Job com
pleted he found that the devil controlled
him instead of "him controlling the
devil. So it is with the trusts and the
Republican party It has become the
creature of the trusts because it can't
raise its big campaign corruption funds
without the trusts to furnish the
In the speech to which I referred Mr. j
Olney said: j
The signs of the times are that under '
the regime of the Republican party and
tnrougn tne national government's forty
years of partnership with the Drotected
industries we have come to the pass where
public officials as well as private citizens
deem themselves above the law.
Witness the sealous haste with which
tho treasury rushes to the relief of Wall
street speculators by a novel and forced
construction of the banking law. Witness
the astonishing proceeding of the same
department in its instructions to subordi
nate offices respecting the duties to be
collected on coal, but the generally law
less atmosphere in which protected Re
publican reign has - enveloped us is even
more strikingly illustrated by the recent
presidential demonstration upon the coal
The president Is our representative with
foreign powers. Will It strengthen his
hands that some half a dozen private cit
izens are found snapping their fingers In
his face? The president's overture to the
coal operators' was prompted by the best
motives and should have been treated
wtth . respectful consideration. It must
have been declined courteously, even If
firmly, but the opportunity to administer
a snub to the president was too tempting.
Accordingly he was net only treated as a
rash intermeddler; he was also lectured
upon the law and facts of the ease and.
to cr"own all. was notified that the cause
of the troubles was lawlessness, which he
waa sarcastically invited to suppress.
For sheer audacity this attitude of the
coal operators could hardly bt matched,
nnd nothing couldnore strongly empha
size the disrepute into which the law of
the land has been brought by long con
tinued Republican domination.
! Tet who are they who were so insistent
Upon the suppression of lawlessness in
tb mining regions? Why. the most un
ninfalng and persistent of lawbreakers.
For years they have defied the law of
Pennsylvania, which forbids common car
riers engaging in the business of mining.
For years they have discriminated be
tween customers in the freight charges on
their railroads in violation of the lnter
itate commerce law. For years they havo
unlawfully monopolized , interstate com
merce in violation of the Sherman anti
Indeed the very beat excuse and ex
planation of their astonishing attitude at
the Washington conference are that, hav
ing violated so many laws for so long and
so many times, they might rightfully
think they were wholly immune from ei
ther punishment or reproach.
It is sometimes urged In extenuation of
the coal operators' foolishly offensive tone
at the conference that they were enraged
at the recognition of labor unions and
the presence by invitation of their repre
sentative. If that be so, they must be as
blind to the salient facts of the era they
are living in as they are oblivious of legal
In these days of combination by capital
oxt a scale and to an extent as startling
a It is unprecedented, can they possibly
imagine that labor is to be denied an
equivalent right of combination? If they
do, it is only another Instance of their
complete indifference to the law of the
land. Pennsylvania made it a criminal
offense to deprive a man of work because
he belonged to a labor union. In 1E98 con
gress not only did the same thing, but, in
a statute providing for the arbitration of
labor disputes, expressly made labor or
ganizations parties to such arbitration.
This was In addition to the previous leg
islation by encouraging and providing for
the Incorporation of labor unions. In Ig
noring them, therefore, the coal operators
simply Ignore and condemn the law of the
land. Law supreme and equal for all men
is to the American people what the ark of
tha covenant was to the Jews of old.
While we have it we need not fear for
our safety. When we lose It. we are far
advanced on the highroad to ruin.
Like Banquo's Ghost.
It seem3 that General Alger will
never hear the last of the embalmed
beef scandal. The other day a press
dispatch was sent out from Attleboro,
Mass., where some billions of lapel
buttons are made, relating that an or
der had been received from Michigan
for a lot of buttons bearing the he
raldic device of a can of army beef,
rampant, on a circular shield, argent,
with a border rouge, bearing the motto
"Embalmed Beef." The manufacturer
refused to name the person or persons
giving the order, but it looks as If a
campaign was about to begin in Michi
gan in which liquid alluvium will con
stitute one of the leading appeals to
reason. It is useless to attempt to
teach a large percentage of Michigan
Republicans that it doesn't pay to en
gage in a mud slinging campaign.
They take to it as naturally as a Phil
adelphia politician takes to boodle or
the St. Louis Globe-Democrat to lying
about Missouri. The old Spanish
proverb fits them all: "It is a waste
of lather to shave an ass."
Against the Ship Subsidy.
It seems that the farmers of the
country are not much pleased with the
effort : of the Republicans to shove the
ship subsidy grab through congress, if
one is to Judge by their utterances In
national convention. A dispatch from
Macon, Ga., says:
The farmers' national congress held Its
fourth and laBt session today. It was the
most important day of the convention. A
persistent attempt was made to induce
the congress . to reconsider its action of
1901 and indorse the ship subsidy bill. The
delegates from the west, re-enforced by
those from the south, sustained the ad
verse report of the committee on resolu
tions, and the resolution of indorsement
was laid on the table by an overwhelm
ing 1 majority. Reciprocity where it will
enlarge markets for farm products was
A Natural Magnet.
A scientific professor was once lec
turing on natural philosophy, and in
the course of his experiments he intro
duced a most powerful magnet, with
which he attracted a block of iron
from a distance of two feet.
"Can any of ,you conceive a greater
attractive power?" demanded the lec
turer, with an air of triumph.
"I can," answered a voice from the
"Not a natural, terrestrial object?'
The lecturer, somewhat puzzled, chal
lenged the man who had spoken to
name the article.
Then up rose an old countryman.
Said he: "I will give you facts, pro
fessor, and you can judge for yourself.
When I was a young man, there was
a little piece of natural magnet done
up In a neat cotton dress as was called
Betsy Maria. She could draw me four
teen miles on Sunday over plowed
land: no matter what the wind or
weather, there wasn't no resisting her.
That magnet of yourn is pretty good,
but it won't draw so far as Betsy Ma

the proof of this? Well, the proof is
obtained by putting crows to work at
counting. v You send men, one' at a
time, into a woodshed near a flock of
crows, and the birds will count the
men up to eleven. That Is to say, elev

keep away. Beyond eleven they be

Baer and the Companions are Going to Get
Even With, the President and th
-'.v v , : Fnbllc
The Independent said, when it was
announced that the coal trust would
arbitrate that Borgan and Baer would
find some way to wreak their ven
geance upon the public, 'and the way
they will do it is told in the Boston
Advertiser as follows:
"The anthracite coal operators, af
ter the resumption of work and the
settlement of the labor troubles, are
going to make the coal business as
close a monopoly as the oil business
now is. The anthracite men will do
this on practically the same lines as
the Standard Oil people have followed,
except that there is no competition to
be crushed out, as in the oil trade.
The operators will have selling agents,
who will no . longer - be Independent
business firms, but will.be little more
than clerks of the Pennsylvania com
bine. They will make prices and sell
coal only on such terms as the trust
fixes before hand. '
"A leading local coal dealer, dis
satisfied with a demand that all orders
of coal must be accompanied with a
promise to ( pay within thirty days of
the time the order was sent, was so dis
pleased that he said disappointedly
that the only thing left for him would
be to sell out. " :
"Do you mean It?" he was asked by
the representative of the Pennsylvania
coal road over which his supplies
were shipped. - .
'T certainly do," he saidsharply.
"Then an agent will wait on you
as soon as you return home and will
pay you any reasonable price," he
The agent reached: the man's place
almost as quickly, as the man himself.
An agreement was being drawn up
when a hitch came, over the ques
tion of the sale of the ''good will."
"We won't pay for that," said the
agent, because it is only a question of
time when every outsider must either
come in as an agent of the trust
merely as a selling agent or get out
of business. The good will is not yours
to sell, or it will not be in a short
"That is . a pretty good bluff," said
the coal dealer, aghast.
"It is not at all a bluff," returned
the' other with unconcern.V'it is a sim
ple statement of fact. The company
will not pay for your good will, be
cause they do hot care for your firm
name. It is the business which they
themselves control, or will soon con
trol, . as soon as their plans are put
into operation, and it will not be for
you but for them to say whether you
will or will not have any coal to sell
"When these plans work out," the
agent explained, "the country will he
divided into districts, each district
having one selling agent responsible to
the main selling agent of the company.
No order for that territory will be
filled unless it comes from the agent
in charge of that . particular district.
If the. company doos not pick your
firm out for its agency it will simply
mean that you will have to go out of
The - - conference ended and the
dealer is still trying to find a customer
for his business. He .finds, however,
that other dealers have had intimation
of the same kind.'.
The first thought that was suggested
after , reading that was: "Will that
coal dealer walk u pand vote the re
publican ticket with as much enthus
iasm as of old?"
The truth is that if the president will
not. prosecute the trusts under the in
terstate commerce law nor the Sher
man anti-trust law, then we will be
utterly helpless and, must render what
ever tribute they demand. The Stand
ard Oil and coal trusts exist in di
rect violation of law, as has been forc
ibly stated by Mr. . Olney. and many
lawyers of the very' highest standing.
If the president will not enforce the
law, the people will be utterly help
less until they elect a president who
will. The first step toward relief will
be .to elect a congress that is op
posed to t trusts, and the people now
have an opportunity to elect such a
congress. Every fusion candidate in
the state of Nebraska should have an
overwhelming majority. If you want
to pay extortionate prices for coal,
oil and everything else that you must
buy, vote the republican ticket.
I have read The1 Independent and
admire it much for the stand that it
takes in behalf of good government
and "a government for all the people."
With two such fearless exponents as
The Independent and The Commoner,
you ought in -time to wipe out that
beastly republican majority there. I

F. D. CORNELL, P. & T. A. -
Most of the writers on the reform
press have long since learned not to
place confidence In the statements of
the Associated press or republican offi
cials" concerning anything connected
with government or politics, but most
of them had so much confidence in
Roosevelt, at least to the extent that
he would not make statements in pub
lic addresses that were not true, and
on account of that confidence a good
many, of them were caught- Among
them was Louis F. Post, of the Chica
go Public He makes his apologies to
his readers as follows:
"Relying too implicity upon Mr.
Roosevelt's statements of fact in his
Cincinnati speeches, we fell into the
error last week (p. 385) of admitting
that anthracite coal is on the free
list. Nominally, it is on the free list,
but In fact it is protected by a tariff
of 67 cents to the ton, the same as
bituminous coal. The explanation is
that anthracite coal, to be upon the
free list must be above a certain
grade 92 per cent of fixed carbon
and that the foreign anthracite which
could , compete with ours, is all of
lower grade than that It was also an
error to admit that petroleum Is on
the free list. It, too, is there nom
inally. But there Is a supplementary
provision in the tariff law whlcli im
poses upon foreign petroleum the same
duty that the country from which it
is imported imposes upon American
petroleum.. In fact, therefore, both
petroleum and anthracite coal are du
tiable; and Mr, Roosevelt's argument
that the coal and oil trusts are not
supported by the tariff, even if it
were sound otherwise, would fall to
pieces for, this reason alone."

THAT MISSOURI CASE
Railroad Tax Cm Simply Started la Su
preme Court Net Finally Adjudi
Some days ago the Omaha Bee called
attention to the fact that the supreme
court of Missouri had granted a writ
of mandamus against the Missouri
state board of equalization, requiring
the board to reconvene and reassess
the railroad property of that state.
The Bee felt that if this were done in
Missouri it ought to have been done
in the recent tax case here. Investi
gation shows that the Missouri case
had simply been commenced not ad
judicated. Hon. Lee Herdman, clerk of the su
preme court of Nebraska, wrote to the
cleric of the supreme court of Missouri
in reference to the case and received
tne following reply. It will be seen
that , only the alternative writ has
been granted, the same as our court
granted an alternative writ when the
NebrasKa case was begun:
Hon. Lee Herdman, Clerk Supreme
Court, Lincoln, Neb. Dear Sir: Re
plying to your favor-of 17th inst. will
say that the case to which you have
reference in that letter is an original
proceeding in this court by mandamus
against the state board of equalization
wherein an alternative writ of man-
damus has been issued of the general
nature and effect stated In your let
ter; but that was only the alterna
tive writ, to which the respondents,
members of the board of equalization,
will make return, and after the issues
are all made up the case will have to
be submitted to the court on the plead
ings, briefs and arguments (if the
ease progresses that far) and an opin
ion will be promulgated when a de
cision is reached.
The report which you saw in the pa
pers was an account of the issuance
of ths alternative writ. The case has
not yet been submitted to the court,
and no decision, of course, has yet
been reached. Hence, it was not a
"ruling" by this court, as you seem
to understand it to be, and I do not
know what the court will rule when
the case comes on for hearing. Yours
very truly, JOHN R, GREEN.
The Still Small Voice ,
He was hungry and a dollar
Lay within his reach he stole!
Though unseen, he shrank from people,
And remorse was in his soul.
On his knees he prayed for mercy
For the wrong 'that he had done.
And he rose up newly strengthened
And repaid it, four for one.
Fortune lifted him to power,
He grew richer day by day.
Finding others at his mercy,
All they had he took away I
Men were crushed where crushing
To the millions that he sought,
But he proudly held his head up
And his conscience murmured not.

Dear Sirs: I have doctored for bleed
ing and protruding piles for fifteen
vears. the trouble becoming worse as
time went on, until I was laid up sick
in bed not able to attend to my du
ties. My wife came to your office to
get treatment, one Saturday, the fol
lowing Monday I was able to go to
work, and In thirty days I was com
pletely cured without the loss of an
hour's time. Several doctors told ma
that nothing but an operation would
relieve, and I think the cure In my
case, in so short a time, is wonderful
indeed, and is most gratefully ac
knowledged. Very truly yours, W. G.
