Local Editor and Advertiaing Solicitor,
ryOne cf the saddest event It has
been our lot to chronicle occurred
Christmas day la this cUy-the burn lug
to death cf little Bessie Howard, the
two-year-old daughter of W . A. How
ard, advertising solicitor of the Cull.
Though in the city at the time, Mr.
Howard did not learn of his baby's death
for three hours after it occurred. Two
sisters, the only other members of the
family, were away and returned to find
only the burned and blackened remains.
Ore of the sisters hiving occasion to
leave the house at 3 o'clock, locked up
her little sister, expecting the other sis
ter would come home at 5 o'clock, and
the tire occurred in the interim. It
should be a warning to all (and there
are many who feel compelled to do it)
not to leave little ones locked up in
homes with lights and tires while their
elders are away. The deeply a fllicted
family in this event have the heart-felt
sympathy of many friends.
HTSonie charitably disposed ladies
gave a Christmas dinner to one hundred
of Lincoln's poor children Christmas
day. A city paper reporting says:
'There were g'rls and boys of all sizt-s,
tattered and ragged, and upon all their
faces was the impress of poverty." e
wish not to say a word in criticism of
these ladies for their one good act. But
what does one good dinner amount to!
Is it the way of love to work only one
day out of 363? Whose fault is it that
in this state, which this year sends a
free car-load of corn to Russia, people
are out of work and suffering? Whose
is the ciime of branding the faces of
these innocent chiidrsn of Lincoln with
marks of poverty? Tens of thousands
of children in New York are similarly
branded, and at the same time a baby
is born among them whose clutch of
title deeds draws annually from the
laboring classes of the country $9,000,
000! He is the heir of $150,000,000 of
tribute enforcing power.
KW O. Hull, state lecturer, will ad

him. J. B. Romine will accompany

series of articles on "The Poor in the
World's Great Cities." They "proposs
to publish n series of articles upon a
Bcala not before attempted, giving the
results, of a special study and work
among the poor," written "by authori
ties so experienced in their respective
fields that the series will appeal to civi
lized people the world over." The pa
pers will be elaborately illustrated. We
mention this series of articles not to ad
vertise, but to indicate the commanding
interest of social questions, the interest
which leads popular magazines to
gather the facts regarding the poor and
place them before the reading, thinking

Christmas eve which had some elements
of comedy in it. A blazing Christmas
tree was suddenly thrust from the upper

iy Governor Thayer and Mayor
Weir called a public meeting for lt
Sunday at Funke's opera to consider
what con Id tie done fur the poor of Lin

ami by Key. Llovd Skinner, says:
"There Is much suffering now in this
city, and relief mut be had immediately.
The poor must be pro
vided for. the necessity is imperative..
And this at a time when the broad
acres of Nebraska have yielded an im
mense surplus of food products and the
state is proposing to send grain by the
train load to the starving Russians.
How can such a state of things as we
have here, starvation in the midst of
plenty, be explained? Easy enough.
The farmers must sell their crops to
pay interest which is sent east and have
but little money to buy goods aad move
the wheels of business here. So the
poor are out of work, and are cold and
hungry. The money loaners and mo
nopolists stand between the city and
country workers force inequitable ex
changes, and keep both classes poor
and dependent. The poor want work
and justice, not charity.

The letters were in response to a census

Me. 1'BtsiiHLSiT It may be a bule
out of the regular order for a private
citizen to undertake to place himself in
direct communication with one so
highly honored as yourself; but I will
make my letter open to the public so
that no one can say that you and I are
secretly working to bleed them.
Of course you would like to know
how I am getting along out here. I
left our native state of Indiara seven
years ago, and engaged in farming and
stock raising in Nebraska. At that
time I paid $33 and $49 per head for
cows. I have just shipped a load of
corn-fed cows that were better than the
ones I paid $40 for teven years ago,
and they sold in Omaha for $12 85 per
head on the 9th day of this month.
After my commission merchant had
disposed of the rattle I was walking the
streets of Omaha, feeling very much
discouraged and down hearted, when I
heard a small boy hallooing at the top
of his voice: "Esening World Herald,
the gnat eastern fire and President Far
rUon'i me-vage." Thinking perhaps
there might be a spark of hope in your
message for my aching heart I bought
a paper and sat down to read. My at
tention was very naturally attracted to
that part referring to American meats,
especially the following: "The grain
crop of this year was the large it in our
history, 50 per cent greater than that of
last year; and yet the market that has
opened and the larger demand resulting
from short crops in Europe have sus
tained prices to such an extent that tho
enormous surplus of meats and bread
stuffs will be marketed at good prices,
bringing relief and prosperity to an in
dustry that was much depressed." O
what solace and comfort I got from that
message cf yours. Those great mar
kets that you have opened up are scat
tering depression to the four winds,
and are crowning the once down trod
den farmer with relief and prosperity.
Two years ago I sold the same class of
cattle in the same market fer twice
what they sell for to day. But reci
procity was then slumbering in tho un
known future, and the great statesman
ship of James G. Blaine had not fully
expended itself upon the markets of the
world. 8even years ago cows sold here
for four times more money than they
will sell for to-day; but what matters
that to the American farmer so long as
be can feast upon the words above:
"Great market and prosperity."
I also learn from your message that
our ministers abroad and the secretary
of agriculture have been co-operating
with you in establishing a market for
American pork, which you say is very
gratifying; but of course you don't
mean tnat 11 is graurying to tne pro
ducer, for the price of pork has been
very much reduced, and we can only
use that kind of gratification to season
our prosperity.
I supporteayou wun my vote ior tne
high position you now occupy, trusting
that you would reciprocate Dy recom

upon prices, mow, Mr. rresiaent, you
have struck the key note: but when
you say you are not in favor of free and
unlimited coinage of silver and increas
ing the currency you admit that you
are not in favor of increasing prices
by increasing the supply , of metallic
money. II you win iook over tne
autobioarraphv of Dr. Benjamin Frank
lin you will be convinced that there is
another way of increasing the volume
of money that is far better than all the
metals of tho eartn. isat 1 nave no

would stop the fruits of my toil from
flowing from 111 v wife and children in

advise you to be kind to them, because
you will get more votes with your
whisky and boodle than from your re
