The independent party comes before
the voters of Nebraska with a state
ticket ,that U proof . against persona
criticism." Every man on the ticket
has a clean record and a character that
is above reproach. Without exception
the nominees are men whom the peo
ple can safely trust to perform tha
which they are elected to do. They
are plain men of the people.
In sympathy and interest they are
fully identified with the people. The
word duty will be the first in their
vocabulary as office-holders. And they
all possess the capability as well as the
will and the integrity to administer
the various offices of state, if the voters
see fit to place them in those offices

What higher personal qualification
can any man have?
But candidates must all be consider

breakers to justice, and recover as far
as possible the money of which the
s:ate has been defrauded.

power to secure the enforcement of
every law, and the prosecution of every
offender. ' ; " - . .
Seventh. All the candidates will se9
that their offices are administered in
the interest ' of the people and not in
the interest of insurance companies,
banks, railroads, land sharks, and
office-holders as they have been ad
ministered in the past.
Eighth. The independent candidates
for the legislature propose to carry
forward the policy so well inaugurated
two years ago; to repeal bad legislation
and to enact wholesome laws on all
subjects; and above all else to enact a
law establishing freight rates no higher
than those in force in Iowa.
Ninth. The legislature will doubt
less take the necessary steps to investi

administration of office on the part of
the present office-holders.
