LINCOLN, NEB., THURSDAY, MAR. 31, 1892.
A Tribnte of Bespect to Hon. W. A.
McKeighan, From May Alliance,
when in the halls of Congres i
Almost alone you stand.
By Labors' foet surrounded,
A valiant little band.
Should you e'er feel disheartened,
Oppressed by unjust blame.
Think of these western prairies,
And those who lore thy name.
When in the chains of bondage,
The burdened people slept.
It was the brave McKeigan
Tne nre of freedom kept.
His courage never faltered,
Though hopeless seemed the strife.
The people to awaken
While Liberty had life.
Be roused the sleeping people,
Their hearts he filled with hope,
He taught them who had bound them,
And how with foes to cope.
Until o're all our prairies
The fire of freedom ranged.
His faith was never shaken,
He was like truth unchanged.
Now in the halls of Congress
The toller has a friend
Who knows our every trial.
On whom we safe depend.
Thy mission, brave McKeighan,
To do what none else can,
To thy long injured people
Kestore their faith in man.
Let alien Oxnard threaten
That he our votes will buy.
If you should dare to vex him,
And to aid labor try.
We send a bold defiance;
Bray. Oxnard, while you may.
The votes of May Alliance
Are not for sale to-day.
Our foes fay thou hast failings.
That thou art not divine ;
In their own eye a hugh beam,
They fancy mote in thine.
Bat well we know thy virtues,
How brave to dare or do,
So while you fight for labor
We'll proudly march with you. ,
We hold all men In honor
Whose votes are cast with thine.
Ages shall tell the story .
Of the im mortal nine .
That famous "wedge in Congress,"
Of Honor, Truth and Bight '- -Which
split the false e id parties
And put their wrongs to flight.
Not thine alone to battle.
Not thine alone the care;
But each true friend of Labor
Shoulc help your burdens bear,
'lis ours to oheer and comfort,
Thy shield of strength to be.
Deal the Great Kuler with us
As we shall dt al with thee .

the following poem unsurpassed by any other
nmduotion of its class in our language. It is
heiuitiful In flirure and ex
nreasloi. Ur.Olark's poem "The Voice of
the People" will be printed by us soon. Ed.
Leona, the hour draws nigh,
The hour we've waited so long.
For I'ae Angel to open a dc or through the sky,
That my spirit may break through its prison
Its voice in an infinite song.
Just now, as the slumbers of night
Come o'er me with peaoe-givlng breath,
The curtain, half lifted, revealed to my sight
Those windows which look on the kingdom of
That borders the river of death.
And a vision fell, solemn and sweet,
BriDglDg gleams of a morning lit land;
I saw the white shore which the pale waters
And I heard the low lull as they broke at tho
Who walked on the beautiful strand.
And I wondered why spirits could cling
To their clay with a struggle and sigh,
When life's purple autnra is better than
And the soul flies away, like an arrew to sing
In a climate where leaves never die.
Leona, come close to my bed,
And lay your dear hand on my brow;
The same touch that thrilled me in days that
And raised the lost roses of youth from the
Can brighten the brief moments now.
We have lived from the cold world apart,
And your trust was too generous and true
For their haste to o'erthrow; when the slan
Was rankling dep in my desolate heart,
I was dearer than ever to you.
I thank the Great Father for this,
That our love is not lavished in vain;
Each germ in the future will blossom to bliss,
And the formB that we love, and the llpl that
Never shrink at the shadow of pain.
By the lUht of the faith am I taught
That my labor is only begun;
In the strength of this hope have I struggled
With the legions of wrong till my armour has
The gleams of eternity's sun.
Leoaa, look forth and behold
From the headland, from hlll-slde, and
The day king surrenders his banners of gold
The twilight advances through woodland and
And the dews are beginning to weep.
The moan's silver hair lies uncurled
Down the broad breasted mountains away ;
Tho sunset's red glory again shall be f ar.td
On the walls of the west, e'er the plates of
And shall rise In a limitless way.
Oh I c am s not in tears to m j temb,
Nor plant with trail flowers the sod;
There is rest anicmg rosea too sweet for its

In the balm breathing gardens of God.
Yet deeply those memories burn
Which bind me to you and to earth,
And I sometimes have thought thatmy being
In the bowers of tho beautiful home, to return
A 'd visi I the home of its birth .
Twould even be pleasant to stay
And walk by your side to the last;
But the lani breeze of Heaven Is beginning
IJ'e shadows are meeting eternity's day,
And Its tumult is hushed in the past.
Leona, good bye; should tb 3 grist
That is gathering now, ever be
Too dark for your faith, you will long for
And remember, the journey, though lone

Interviews with Prominent Politi
cians on National Politics.
M'KINLEY NOT IN THE RACE
Be Favors President Harrison and Will
Support Him California Delegates
Will Go I'nlnstructed Senator
Gorman's Position Notes.
Washington, March 29. M. H. De
Young, the California member of the
national Republican committee, is in the
city. On the subject of national poli
tics, he said: "We hope to keep Cali
fornia in the Republican column, but of
course much depends on the presidential
nominations. The state has been con
stant in its admiration for Mr. Blaine,
and there is no diminution of that senti
ment. We don't hold our convention
until Mav 80. and I am of the opinion
that the delegation will go to Minne
apolis without instructions. There is
little prospect for a third party in Cali
fornia, but the people want free silver
irresnective ot DartY allegiance.
"The Democratic delegation to w
farm will. I think, also co uninstructed

Ex-Congressman Warner of Ohio, the
well known free silver advocate, talking
on the subiect of the presidential nomi
nation said: "There is a desperate effort
being made to nominate Mr. Cleveland
nnd it mav succeed. , Hie nomination
would be eouivalent to an anti-silver
nlntform. The noliticituis are. however.
trying to avoia tnis Dy tne nouiumuuu
of a candidate on an equivocal platform,
wherebv the srold men in the east can
say: 'our candidate will veto a free coin
age bill,' and in the west they can say:
'our candidate is in favor of being a red-
hot free coinage man.' These politicians
want a platform that can be read ac
cordincrinir to the locality where the
reader happens to be. This kind of
duplicity will not win. The American
neonle have too much common sense. In
the olden days Democracy said we must
have gold and silver unrestricted by the
monopolistic influences. They are the
metals of intrinsic value and the people
inherentlv have implicit faith in both.
If the party nominates a man on this
platform with equal explicit avowal for
the reform, he cannot be beaten.'' -
"Then, who, according to your view
of the situation, is the man?"
"Arthur P. Gorman of Maryland. He
is conservative, discreet, fair and honor
able to all classes. His record is a con
tinuous atrmrarlefor Democratic suprem
acv. The convention should put on the
ticket with him Boies of Iowa or Gray
of Indiana, and the people will rally to
it with one accord."
McKinley Not n Possibility,
Columbus, 0., March 20. For the sec
ond time in his career Governor Mc
Kinley has declined to place mself in
the way of presidential lightning. He
authorized The Dispatch to announce
definitely that he is not a candidate for
. . . , r . i
tne Kepuoiican nomination lor me presi
dencv this vear. and the manner in mak
ing the statement, as well as the positive
words, left no room for doubt as to his
intention, hi answer to the plain ques
tion, "Will you be a candidate before
the Republican national convention for
the presidential nomination?" the gov
ernor returned the equally plain answer,
"T rill tint. Prpsidfitit. Harrison hfls
given us a strong, honest and patriotic
administration and, if a candidate, will
be renominated." Mr. McKinley made
the statement after a conference with
Chairman Harvey, of the state executive
committee, and other prominent leaders,
which lasted practically the greater part
ef the evening. Mr. McKinley will take
the stump in the Rhode Island cam
paign. Prohibition In Iowa.
Des Moines, la., March 29.-The
conventon of anti-prohibition RepubU
eans passed resolutions asking the Re
publican members of the house to take
steps to insure the enactment of a high
license law and pledging their effor to
induce the Republican party to abandon
the policy of prohibition. A committee
presented these resolutions to a caucus
of the Republican members of the house.
The caucus then held a secret session
and named a committee to draft resolu
tions in reply, which will declare against
any change in the existing law. This
removes the last prospect of a repeal of
the prohibitory law by this assembly.
Broke Up In a Bow.
Metropolis, His., March 29. The
Democratic mass convention appointed
C. L. V. Mulkej.and J. D. Stewart
delegates to ttie state convention. The
delegates were not instructed, but it is
understood that they will support Judge
Altgeld for governor and Gill J. Burr
for lieutenant governor. The conven
tion breke up in a row over an attempt
to pass a resolution indorsing Hfll for
Salisbury's Reply Satisfactory.
Washington, March 30. President
Harrison and several members of his
cabinet, during the day, considered the
reply of Lord Salisbury, and it is said
officially that the communication gives
much satisfaction and gratification to
this government. The document was
transmitted to the senate by the presi
dent shortly after noon, and
principal subject of discussion in the ex
ecutive session. The president's response
to Lord Salisbury will be presented to
the cabinet today.
A Black Hero.
Montgomery, March 29. Mss. Kate
Clay and Mrs. Hannah Farley, and the
former's 3-year-old son, while driving on
a footbridge over a Weep ravine were
thrown out. Mrs. Clay was drowned.
Ellis Harris, a negro, rescued Mrs.
Farley and little Jim Clay. He also
brought np Mrs. Clay's body. A purse
of $500 was subscribed for the negro.
For Soldiers Home In Kansas.
Was?hin8TON, March 2'J. The house
committee on public lands ordered favor
ably reported a bill authorizing the sec
retary of the interior to convey to tha
state of Kansas a portion of the Fort
Haves military reservation for the pur
pose of a soldiers' heme, to be estab
lished and maintained by the state.
SILVER MEN ORGANIZE
An Address to the Voters of the West ant
Denver, March 29. The state execu
tive committee of the Colorado State
Silver league issued an address to the
voters of Colorado and the United States.
The address sets forth that the organiza
tion is a purely non-partisan one, and its
object is to unite all voters of all parties
throughout the west and south to se
cure, if possible, the nomination of a free
coinage candidate, on a free coinage
platform, at both Minneapolis and Chi
cago. This work, they urge, should
be begun at the primaries, and with
that end in view they ask the most
through organization throughout the
country. While recommending that
every state and territory send delega
tions to those conventions composed of
the best men that the parties afford,
Btill they give notice that unless their
requests are complied with they will not
support the candidate of either conven
tion, tne auaress recites tue organize
tionls already completed in this state
and urges the co-operation of both the
west and soutti.
SILVER BILL SHELVED.
Sneaker Crisp Refuses Cloture Bule
I'nless Supported by His Party
Washington, March 29. The ranks
of the free silver men in the house were
thrown into consternation by the report
that Speaker Crisp had stated that he
would not vote in the committee on rules
in favor of bringing in a role to shut off
debate on the Bland bill unless he re
ceived assurances from a majority ot
the Democrats that they would support
the rule. . i 4
Alter a consultation with some of his
supporters Mr. Bland decided to. en'
deavor to get the requisite- number otA
names to a petition of tne committee on
rules, asking them to set apart time ror
a consideration of the free coinage bill
and to bring in a cloture rule. But, on
further consideration, the Bland men
decided to withdraw the petition and
irive un the fieht. : The anti-silver men
circulated the report that thirty-five
silver Democrats had refused to sign the
petition, and this had the effect of keep
ing many of those who had heretofore
supported the bill and programme from
putting their names to the paper. The
Bland men were much disconcerted by
this falling away in their numbers, and
after they began to see how lareethe
deficit was they decided to withdraw
the petition. Mr. Bland said he had
given up the fight and would make no
further attempt to bring the bill to a
VOte, ;AV v-i t .. :u
Speaking for Mr. Bland and the free
silver men, Mr. Pierce c-f Tennessee
said: "We will not push the matter
further, but will let , wie committee on
rules assume the rponsibility for the
defeat of the bill before the people of toe
There is much ill feeling expressed by
the free silver men against Mr. Crisp's
deciding against cloture rule unless sup
ported by a majority of his party, he
has broken his word given to Mr. Bland,
Mr. Pierce, Mr. Stone of Kentucky and
others. Mr. Bland said that Tuesday
last, just before he moved to adjourn
the house and the house lost the support
of the special order for voting on his bill
he had a consultation with Speaker Crisp
on the course to pursue in order to save
the bill from defeat, and that Mr. Crisp
assured him that if he moved an adjourn
ment the committee on rules would
bring in another special order pro
viding for a direct vote on
tne bill and pending amendments
and also a provision for cloture. Satis
fied with this, Mr. Bland says he moved
to adjourn, and next day under the
guiding advice of the speaker, drafted
the resolution which he introduced set
ting apart yesterday for a vote on the
bill, and also providing for a oloture.
Mr. (Srisp assured him, says Mr. Bland,
that he would vote for this order in the
committee on rules, and that it would
undoubtedly be brought in in view of
this assurance, Mr. Bland thinks the
speaker's present attitude is inconsistant
and hard to explain, and he says he can
not understand why Mr. Crisp went
back on his promises.

Albany, N. Y., Mach 59. The sen.
ate took up the case of Judge Maynard,
of the court of appeals, in connection

Testimony Given Before
REASONS FOR PROMOTION.
Money Borrowed from Clerks and CtnlmL
Advanced for n Consideration Pro-J J
posed Tariff Legislation Import
ant Measures Pending.
Washington, March 29. Q. N
wood, patent attorney of this city, for
nierly chief clerk in the interior depart
ment, was the first witness called by the
pension office investigating jcommittoe,
Witness told of a request that General
Rauui made to him for a loan of money
for a few days. He could not loan the
commissioner the money, but took him
to Mr. Thompson, the president of the
National Metropolitan bank, who hej
thought might accommodate him. Mr.
Thompson refused to accommodate the
commissioner, because of some personal
feeling against him on account of the
commissioner's refusal to promote a
clerk in the pension office that he (Mr.
Thompson) and other persons had asked
him to promote. Mr. Thompson agreed
subsequently to lend the money to Mr.
Lockwood, who in turn loaned it to the
commissioner. The commissioner dis
claimed te him (witness) that he had any
feeling against Mr. Thompson, but said
that he would soon have a large number
of promotions to make and would con
sider the case. The loan was subse
quently paid. , ' - i
.President iuompsou, reierrea to oy
the previous ' witness, detailed the cir
cumstances of the loan. He had ex
pressed to the commissioner the hope
that if it was consistent with his duty
he would make the promotion of the
clerk referred to. Witness refused to
give the name of the clerk whose promo
tion he had asked for. She had not been
promoted and had been treated a little
roughly by Green B. Raum, Jr. .Wit
ness stated that he had no confidence in
William H. Baker, formerly chief of
the record division of the pension office,
said there had been charges preferred
against him while in the pension office
of borrowing money from the employes
and not returning it. Mrs. Fithian had
once offered him money in re
turn for promotion. Witness reported
the matter to Green B. Raum, Jr., and
Mrs. Fithian was not promoted. Ho
had borrowed $10 from a clerk named
Donohne, whom he had made a section
chief, Donohue getting the money from
a clerk named Morse, me note noi
being paid, Donohue wrote witndis a
letter during office hours, saying that
unless the money was paid immediately.
Morse would have him (Barker) arrested.
Witness paid the money but immed
iately reduced Donohue to a clerkship,
for insubordination in writing such a
letter during office hours.
Af ;er a good deal or questioning tne
witness said Green B. Raum, Jr., prob
ably got a part of tne $50, as he and
witness were borrowing money back
and forth of each other.
Thomas Farcett, an attorney, and
formerly an employe of the pension
office, testified that before the election
of 1TO0 there were pension claims from
the state of Indiana advanced for a con
sideration. He cited a case from Colum
bus he had handled, in which Mr. J. J.
Dunbar, Representative Cooper's op
ponent for congress, was interested.
In concluding a reply to a question,
witness remarked that he would like to
show in parallel columns his record in
contrast with that of the commissioner
in discharging him, and at the same
time keeping Theodore Smith and a
number of women reputed to be of bad
moral character in office. This remark
was finally stricken out and the com
mittee adjourned till Wednesday.
Important Measures Pending.
Washington, D. C, March 29. The
Springer free wool bill will be brought
to a vote April 22 or 23, unless there
should be a hitch in the present pro
gramme ef the Democratic majority of
the ways and means committee, which
has charge of the measure. Springer,
who is on the programme to close tho
debate, expects to be sufficiently im
proved in health by that time to fulfill
the task. The binding twice and cotton
bagging bills will then be pushed to a
vote as soon as possible, to do followed
perhaps by other specihe Dills attacking

With these measures disposed of and ap
propriatioa bills in excellent shape the
Democratic majority of the ways and
means committee believe an early ad
journment of congress possible and ac
cordingly discussed the adjournment

but the sentiment was favorable to June

ate to-day Mr. Stewart gave notice that
he would call up his free silver bill next

Deadwood, & D., March 19. Albert
Whipple, a squaw man, killed an In
dian named Lays-on-Mis-Mother-in-Law,
to Jackson county Dec. 2, 189 1. He
was arrested, brought before United
States Commissioner Burns in this city
and discharged, it being clearly proven
the crime was not committed on
the reservation and therefor the
United States courts have no
jurisdiction. The government offered
to turn the accused and prosecuting
witnesses over to Pennington county,
within the jurisdiction of the courts of
which the crime was committed, but
the offer was declined by the prosecut
ing attorney, Charles W. Brown, on the
ground that "it is impossible to convict
a white man for killing an Indian."
The declaration is indignantly denied
by the better class of people of the
state and the attorney general will be
asked to compel Pennington county
authorities to proceed. The crime was
extremely, brutal. Whipple beating and
kicking his victim to death. Commis
sioner Burns, who held the examination,
states that the evidence against the ac
cused is positive and that he has little
doubt he would be convicted on trial.
