A LAWYER ON THE SITUATION.
The Enlargement of the Powers of the
Charles T. Murray, in a letter from
New York City: "It is generally con
ceded, I believe, " said a well-known
western lawyer of prominence, "that
we are not only growing more power
ful as a nation year by year, but that
we are drifting slowly and surely to
ward what is called a paternal govern
ment. Both of the great political par
tics have contributed to that end. We
have only to study the record of recent
congresses to note the rapidity with
which we are traveling in that direction.
The whole tendency of national legisla
tion is to the enlargement of the powers
and the extension of the duties of the
general government. Of late years my
legal practice has involved some of the
broader constitutional questions aad this
gradual change has forced itself npon
my attention. The political aspect of
the new order of things does not dis
turb me. On the contrary this gradual
modification of our original system
must be regarded as the legitimate and
beneficial result of a higher state of civ
ilization. Whether it is admitted by all
men or not we may as well admit that
such a change is in progress. There
are those who lament the change. I do
not. There are those who think this
departure from the early tenets of our
fathers is the forerunner of decline and
dissolution. But they are growing
fewer every year. Even the great body
of the democratic party has cut loose
from state rights and strict construction
and become converted to the pxternal
school. In my section of the country
the proposition for the general govern
ment to assume ownership and charge
of the telegraph lines and railroads is
no longer looked upon as undesirable,
but if put to a vote in a general election
it would receive the sanction of three
fourths of the people. If you and I live
ten yeius longer we'll probably see it
accomplished. Postal savings banks
willftTlow, and "
"The K aning of government money
on farm mortgages!" was suggested.
"Very likely. Why not! Why
shouldn't the farmers have equal right
with the national bankers?"
"Are they all socialists up there in the
"If you call that socialism three-fourths
of us are socialists. Not in the sense
of wishing to turn things over by force,
but as desiring a paternal government
by law, yes nearly all."
This frank avowal from the lips of a
hard-headed lawyer and wealthy citi
zen, who makes his temporary home at
the Hoffman house, was enough to de
prive a man of his breath. He con
tinued: "My statement is not a speculative
one at all. Nor has it any political sig
nificancein the narrow and common
acceptation of that term. I am a repub
lican, but never was in politics and
never will be. I am speaking now as
an independent citizen. I am speaking
too, only of the people of the coun
try I know something about. Per
haps there are other sections where
the sentiment is the same from what I
read of the Farmers' Alliance in the
south and from the recent action of the
railroad employes in this state, and from
general report of sentiment elsewhere I
think this idea is becoming general but
I do not insist on that. The cry of pa
ternal government is no longer a bug
bear. In principle it is not a new de
parture. It is now only a question of
growth. We begin to recognize this,
from the supreme court down."
A Polk County Brother is Very Much
Editor Farmers' Alliance: As one
who is deeply interested in the success
of the great reforms advocated and
adopted by the independent party of
this state, I am greatly grieved at any
sign of discord and dissension in our
ranks. From the very beginning of
this popular uprising against political
iniquity in high places, it has been the
policy of the enemies of popular gov
ernment to weaken the forces of re
form by arousiag and fomenting fac
tional jealousy and mistrust, and to
this end they resort to every vile meth
od that experienced cunning can devise
and devilish malice execute. Notice
the craft with which they seek to un
deimine the influence of our ablest and
most trusty leaders; men whose social
and political lives are above reproach,
and therefore offer no vulnerable point
for the ordinary political weapons of
defamation and slander. Knowing
that political independence is the very
life blood of our movement these
treacherous assassins of reform these
Satraps and slaves of a vile system of
political despotism hypocritically ap
peal to that spirit of independence by
representing and denouncing our tried
and true leaders as "Bosses" and "Dic
tators." That our enemies should pick out our
best and bravest champions as shining
marks for their cruel and destructive
missiles is but natural, but that there
should be men in oar own ranks who
either igaoraotly or maliciously tura
their weapons agaiast their own faith
ful leaders is a matter for profound
sorrow and bitter shame. Ingratitude
seems to be the first reward of all true
reformers. There are always swiue
who will turn and rend the man who
casts his pearls before them. If the
men who are devoted to the destruction
of our cause can only find traitors and
fools enough amongst us to second
their efforts by cutting off our own
heads, their warfare will soon be ac
complished and our hopes lost.
Those independents who cannot see
the trail of the serpent in the Adams
eouity resolution, nor the cloven hoof
of the enemy in the resolution clandes
tinely interpolated inio the committee's
report at Lancaster county convention
should have their eyes pried open with
a crowbar or undergo some equally
effective optical operation.
I hope there are but few amongst us
who cannot distinguish between a man
who by conspicuous ability and devo
tion has earned an honorable place in
our councils and a man who by an apti
tude for political scheming works him
self into the dishonorable position of
As long as there are men amongst us
calling themselves independents and
reformers, who instead of subscribing
to some paper devoted to the interests
of our cause, carry home bundles of old
party sheets filled with venomous at
tacks on our party leaders, so long will
we be in danger from internal discord.
There are Hundreds of men amongst us
who read the malicious lies published
in the corporation-subsidized papers
every day and never see tbem nailed in
the independent press on the morrow.
I don't care how good a standing a man
may have in the reform organization to
which he belongs, if he does not sup
port and encourage some of the few
apers which are honestly and fear
essly defending his cause amidst the
shot and bell of the hired mercenaries
of classes and corporations he is a
skulker, and if in addition to this de
linquency he subscribes for the powder

fool or a traitor.

ourselves a fair portion of the products
of our toil by refusing to compete with
each other for the use of land. Realiz
ing that the object of all foreclosures of
land is to obtain a greater rato of usury
than they receive as interest we will

An Open Letter to Uncle Sam, by Jacob
Decatur, Neb., July 17, 1891.
My Dear Uncle Sam : Josh Billings
once said, 'Those people who are
always telling what they would do if
they were there, never happen to be
there." Now I am going to tell you
what I would do if I were the president
of these United States. Is my message
to congress I would boldly affirm that
the private ownership cf land was
wronjr in principle and mischievous in
results. I would recommend that steps
be taken to reclaim all lands by who
ever owned, whether by syndicates,
corporations or individuals. I should
be careful to state that confiscation
should not be thought of for a moment;
but the lands should be bought at a fair
price; and then leased to citizens on
such terms as would enable all to pro
cure permanent homes. I would recom
mend that the bureau of agriculture
take steps to negotiate with the nine
millions of citizens whose homes are
mortgaged to the end of selling out to
the government for a price that would
liquidate their mortgage indebtedness,
and in all cases giving the present
owner the preference of leasing from
the government a limited amount of the
acres thus disposed of at from one to
three per cent per annum on the
amount he received. This policy
would relieve every man who has a
mortgage on his farm and would in
crease the volume of money now in
circulation many millions. If any re
fused to sell to the government on
reasonable terms, he should be let
alone to make the best of his mtuation
that he could, until it became necessary
to apply the riftht ot "eminent domain"
to bis holdings for the purpose of fur
nishing homes for the destitute.
That we may be true to the principle
of "equal rights to all and special priv
ileges to none," I would also recom
mend that all citizens who wished to do
so might sell their farms to the govern
ment and become lease-holders of a
limited amount (not over 160 acres.) In
this wav the lands could all be trim.
f erred back to the people or the govern
ment where they properly belong, and
not ajar given to the orderly move
ment of industry, commerce or educa
tion. I should remind them that to accom
plish this would require the ircuing of a
vast amount of paper currency which
should be a legal tender for all debts,
and that every dollar would be backed
up by lands always appreciating in
value as population and the demand for
I should call the attention of conorress
to the existing fact of four millions of
people out of employment; also to
millions mora who are working at star
vation wages, for taeir present and
permanent relief I would recommend
that congress take steps to Improve all
her lands that are lit for farming and
lease the same in limited quantities to
such of nor citizens as wished to occupy
them and would pay a reasonable per
centage for their use and occupancy.
In tr.5 way constant and profitable em
ployment m: y be given to all and the
governmeut derive a revenue from the
operation. The nation would derive
great benefit from the moral effect of
securing to each family a home on such
terms, and the curse of mortgaged
homes would cease forever.
As idleness is the parent of untold
mischief, to prevent it I would recom
mend that the government be always
engaged in carrying on some public
work, like the construction of the Hen-
epin canal or the building ot railroads
where needed, and that such loads be
operated by the government for the
benefit of the whole people as is our
I would further recommend that inas
much as the liquor traffic is a national
evil, that national measures be taken to
I would advise that the government
manufacture all that is needed for med
icinal and scientific uses; and that each
postmaster be an authorized agent to
keep it on hand in sealed packages to be
sold only as the law designated. And
if any obtain it under false pretences
deal with them as we now do with those
who violate postal laws.
I would recommend that all men
have access to all minerals beneath the
earth's surface by simply paying the
damages done to the agricultural inter
ests of the lease holders whose lauds
are entered upon and worked for min
eral. This would break down all mo
nopoly in coal, salt and minerals of all
Understand me, uncle, I don't want
to be piesident. The highest attainable
state in this life is a home in the coun
try. I don't want to exchange my cot
tage on the farm for the White house in
Washington City. I and wife and
children are far happier here in Ne
braska than we would be there. After
the battle of Waterloo, Napoleon in
quired of a lad. who had brought him
some bread aud butter and coffee, where
he lived. The lad told him. "Your
father has a cottage there and a few
acres of land, has be not?" inquired the
fallen hero. "Ye's sir," said the lad.
"Theft is happiness!" ejaculated Napo
leon. The glories of Jena, of Av.ster
litz, of Borodino and Marengo faded
into nothingness when compared with
the calm perennial joys of a cottage and
a few acres of land. Yes, dear uncle, I
have struggled long and hard to get me
a home. I have got it; and I find it so
congenial with the wants of my nature
that I now propose to do all I can to
assist every man and woman on the
earth to the same condition. And I
have simply indicated to you how I
should proceed were I the president of
these United States.

The Correct Styles.
Morning gowns of wash silk are
charmingly cool for summer neglige.
They are usually of whiteground with
small crossbars of distinct stripes of
rose, reseda, blue or black, with selv
age ruffles as trimming, and ribbons
matching the colors of the design.
The best models have continuous
breadths, with waist and skirt in one.
They are made quite full over a fitted
lining, and are confined by waist rib
bons in rows of a corselet, or set high
in the back and crossed to a point in
front. A graceful gown of white silk
barred with reseda green has a yoke
front concealed by wide pleated re-
rs of the silk, the pleats falling
lengthwise from shoulders to bust,
then graduated to a point at the
waist-line. The back is pleated at the
neck and shoulders and shirred across
the waist. A reseda belt ribbon of
satin two inches wide is shirred in
many close rows a length of three or
four inches and sewed permanently
to the back at the line of the waist,
then brought forward to a point in
front and tied with long ends. The
front is closed below this ribbon, and
a jabot of the silk with selvage finish
is set down the seam . The full straight
sleeves are gathered at armhole and
wrist, and two selvage frills fall on the
hand; a band of ribbon passes around
the wrist and is knotted on the seam.
At the back of the neck is a flaring
pleated collar, while in front the rib
bon is set to form a point below the
throat and finished with a bow.
Wrappers of challi or printed mous
seline de laine are made for those who
require wool garments even in mid
summer. Frills of Bilk and velvet rib
bon bows are their trimming.
Fine French nainsook of a delicate
color, pale lavender, pink, or china
blue, is made up in dainty wrapper
gowns of loose, comfortable shape
that serve as lounging-wrappers in the
daytime and also as night-gowns.
They are made full and straight, with
large sleeves, wide collar, and broad
cuffs, with points or scallops button
holed on the edges. The front is tuck
ed from throat to waist, and button
ed straight down the left side, with
a scalloped frill as trimming. The
back is tucked as a yoke, and there
are button-holes worked at near in
tervals around the waist, through
which a ribbon is passed to draw the
gown closely about the wearer. Sim
ilar wrappers are made of white nain
sook woven in lace-like stripes and
powdered with lavender or blu fleur-de-lis,
coral branches, or polka dots of
Domestlo Life In Paris,
Life in Paris means what itdoes in
all large cities; the good and the bad,
writes Edward W. Bok in The
Ladies' Home Journal for August.
The casual tourist sees, as a rule,
only one side. As a race, the French
are merry-making people; their very
natures seek and crave enjoyment.
But their amusements are, therefore,
not necessarily of an order below the
ken of respectability. It has been my
pleasure to see something of French
domestic life, and to hear more of it,
frojn sources away, from prejudice.
The eflertton which etlsts between
the French father and his daughter is
beautiful and almost xritual. Home
and family means as much to him as
it does to the resident of any other
city under the sun. The French moth
er is not only a cook par excellence,
but a perfect type of housekeeper. By
nature, she is quick, and she accom
plishes much more with leas exertion
than does her English sister. The
education of her children is as a gos
pel to her. Her religious faith in strong,
and she instills it into her children at
the domestic board and at eventide.
The parents live out-of-doors, but it
is tare, indeed, that you see children
on the street of Paris after reason
able hours. They are taught to find
their cheif amusement in the home;
and everything is done by the French
father and mother to see that the
home is attractive to their children.
One of the most beautiful sights in the
world is to see a well regulated French
family, where you will hnd the atmos
phere redolent with domesticity.
- Strictly In Confidence.
Women are certainly a queer lot,"
said a man the other day. "You nev
er can tell what they mean by what
they say. Now, a young lady invited
me to go to a musicale with her not
long since, and on the way confided to
me that she was going to England this
summer to spend a few weeks with the
Duchess of Manchester and a few weeks
with the Duchess of Marlborough.
Naturally I was overwhelmed by this
social disclosure, and when she begged
me to keep it a profound secret I as
sured her that no word of so import
ant announcement should ever cross
my lips. You can fancy my surprise
when several times during that even
ing, above the crash of pianos, the
hum of conversation and the tinkle of
laughter, I heard a shrill little voice
repeating, 'A few weeks with the Duch
ess of Manchester and a few weeks
with the Duchess of Marlborough.' I
don't fancy there was a soul in thai
room to whom she did not confide litV
secret before the evening was over
and the fun of the thing is that she
has not gone to England at all, and I
very much question whether she ever
intended to.- Now, what was her ob
ject in telling that stuff?" Guileless

tells of the assistance chimpanzees,
sajous, sakis, mandrills, and baboons
give one another. I can cite, as a5
eye-witness, how one big monkey will
take charge of a smaller one, protect
him against the bullies in the cage, and
act as a horse for his minor friend to
mount ' But 1 never saw the bigger
divide his bit of apple with the lesser
monkey. I yield to no oae in my re
spect for the dog, but I have yet to
note how Ranger brings a bone

thrown on the ground, itwas his habit
with fore and hind feet and with open

monkey in a cage. At once a careful
keeper removes the ill one, or the con
tagion spreads. If the invalid is not
taken away, the other healthy mon
keys will crowd the sick one to death.
lhere may be this explanation about
it As the' temperature of the ill
monkey diminishes that is, if he has
no fever the other monkeys may
press around him closely so as to keep
him warm. Anyhow, by getting on
top of him, they smother him and
hasten his end. If I were speculative
and forgiving to monkeys, I might
say that nature had no use for an ail
ing monkey, and wanted to get rid of
him as expeditiously as possible, and
that hence came this curious instinct
to the well-to-do monkeys. What
truth there may be in the stories told
by ranchmen of the speedy death of
the crippled steer, despatched by the
herd, I do not vouch for. This whole
subject is deserving of greater study.
As to monkeys, men who have them
in charge say, "This crowding of a
