The independents of Fullerton held
a meeting in front of the Fullerton
hotel last Satutday evening, to endorse
i he nomination of Weaver, Field, and
Poynter, and to let the people know
that we stand squarely on the platform
adopted at Omaha. A number of good
speeches were made in which Miekle
john was given a "pointer'' that the
man is already nominated who will
draw the $5,000. as congressman from
this district. Brad Slaughter is here
oiling up the old "machine," but the
men he has employed declare that the
o!d thing runs hard." H.
Garfield Is All Eight
BUR well, Neb., July 11, 1892.
The independents of this, Garfield
county, met Saturday evening to ratifv
the nomination of Weaver and Fields
and to say that the meeting was a sue
cess would be putting it very mildlv in
deed. The afternoon was rainy and it
looked as though there would be few
but, but before 8:30 the large court
house hall was filled to overflowing and
many were compelled to return to their
homes because of their inability to
secure standing room. The Burwell
brass band was in attendance and dis
coursed patriotic airs. Stirring
speeches were made and at 11:15 the
meeting broke up amid great enthu
siasm. The republicans attempted to
ratify Harrison's nomination but could
only get about twenty-five people
and they acted as though they were at
tending a funeral. You can put it
down that Garfield county is all right
for the ticket from Weaver down.
Yours for the cause,
T. W. Bartley.
Poynter at Albion.
The following letter was over-looked
until too old to be called news, but it is
very good reading anyway:
Hartington, Neb., July 5, 1802.
Hon. William A. Poynter was invited
to deliver the Fourth of July oration at
this place. Prompt to meet his
engagement the next congressman ar
rived on the noon train. He spoke at
the bowery at the west end of Main st.
Over 1,000 people, listened to the. ad
dress. Mr. Poynter spoke in a loud,
clear voice, and was listened to with
breathless attention. He gave a brief
summary of our nation's birth and his
tory; pointed out the dangers which
threaten the life of the republic, and
closed with a thrilling appeal to the
patriotism of his auditors. The ad
dress was well received and frequently
applauded. Poynter is the lion of the
hour. He will be our next congress
man. The people were fortunate in se
curing one so able to dissipate the false
notion that the independents are noth
ing but ignoramuses and sans culottes

Hie Stimulating Effects of the Tariff
In 1890, the republican managers got
out the most wonderful book since . the
days of Gulliver. It was widely read
and resulted, in the grand politital rev
olution of that year. They are now
getting out another book similar but
vastly more wonderful. It is designed
to show the wonderful things accom
plished by the G. O. P. The following
are extracts printed in advance without
THE TARIFF ON EGGS.
Its wonderful effid on the patriotic hens
of the nation.
The McKinley tariff of 5 cents per
dozen on eggs has produced marvelous
effects and has enabled thousands of
farmers to pay off their mortgages.
The hens have been marvelously en
couraged, and stimulated by the fact
that they have at last been recognized
by the government and brought under
the beneficent influence of protection
against the pauper hens of Canada.
Since the passage of i-he bill, the
chicken cholera has been greatly re
duced, and the gaps have entirely dis
appeared. While on the other hand
thousands of the pauper free trade hens
of Canada have died of grief and morti
fication. EX-PRESIDENT HAYES' TESTIMONY.
The following is an extract from a
letter written by Ex-President Hayes:
My Dear Major McKinley: The ef
fect of your biJl on my Iicds has been
phenomenal. My pullets begin laying
now at three months old. In a number
of instances hens have laid two eggs
per day. I am confident if the tariff
were doubled they would all lay two
eggs per day as a regular thing. My
hens sing your praises every day.
Wheneverono lay a protected egg,
she flys off her nest crying at tho top
of her voice: "Mac-Mac-Mac-McKiuley,
Mac-Mac-Mac-McKmley. Dear Major,
come up and see me, and together we
will enjoy a fry of the tenderest yellow
legged, protected chicken you ever
tasted and together we will rejoice over
the effects of your wonderful bill.
THE TARIF ON CABBAGES.
The effect of the McKinley tariff of
three cents per head on cabbage has
been astonishing. The cabbages now
hold their heads several inches higher
than they did under free trade, and
they actually defy their old-timo des
troyers, the cabbago worms. It can be
proven by reliable statistics that no
citizen of Nebraska or Kansas has
eaten a mouthful of cheap foreign cab
bage since the bill went into effect.
Thousands of persona who could not
endure to have a barrel of sour-krout
on tho place, have learned to eat it,
and pronounce it a fragrant and nui-
tritious food. Under the influence of
this tariff, the cabbage raisers of the
west are rapidly becoming plutocrats.
THE TARIFF ON STRAW
It can be authoritatively stated und
proven by statistics that sine? the1 Mc
Kinley bill went into effect with its tax
on foreign straw, not a single ton of
pauper Russian or Hungarian straw
has been imported ' into the United
States. Such rank crops of straw were
never seen under free , trade, a grew
in Nebraska ... last year. Patriots
American young folks now " suck their
lemonade exclusively through pro
tected American straws. Tho straw
raisers ot the west have been "infini
tely benefitted" by this tariff on straw.
READ AND BE CONVINCED.
This little campaign book will be
issued as soon as the republican nat
ional committee finds a chairman.
Every patriotic American should read
its thrilling statements. A single pasre
of it is warranted to strain the cred
ulity of the most inveterate protec
tionist, while tho work as a whole will
raise the ghost of Munchausen. This
book is destined to produce a more won
derful revolution than that of 18C0,
