.'WAHixT03T.'Fe 27. The fight In
the house on the sundry civil bill and
the Sherman bond amendment is cer
tain to be a hot one.
The silver men in the house to-day
began filibustering against the senate
amendments to the sundry civil appro
priation bilL Though the prediction
has not been made in open house, the
feeling is general among members that
the bill will fail to pass and that this
trill lead to an extra session.
- Mr. Holman's cloture resolution pro
viding for but fou' hours debate has
angered the silver men exceedingly.
Mr. Bland alone wants a whole day.
Mr. IMerce is filibustering against
anything and everything to stave off
the evil hour and Mr. Hatch, enraged
at his failure to force the anti-options
bill through, snaps at everything.
The bill will have to be considered in
committee of the whole and when it is
taken up if the opposition is not strong
enough to defeat it on a square yote,
they will filibuster till the end of the
Mr. Simpson is one of the leaders of
the filibustering movement. When it
was suggested to him that the course
resolved upon will prevent the open
ing of the Cherokee strip and the pas
sage of important world's fair legisla
tion, he answered that he cared noth
ing for the comments of the plutocratic
Meanwhile the condition of the
treasury gives promise that when Mr.
Foster turns it over to Mr. Carlisle
there will not be $1 of free gold in it
At the close of business yesterday
there was but $4,200,01)0, and it was
aid to-day that 83,000,000 of that had
been engaged for shipment.
Secretary Foster was before the
ways and means committee of the
house in secret session for two hours
to-day, explaining the condition of the
treasury. He declared that there was
no occasion for fear of a bankrupt
treasury, but admitted that the situa
tion was one demanding serious con
sideration and that his estimates of
available cash in the treasuiy at the
close of the present fiscal year
would need to be scaled
down to some extent. He
thought there would be a surplus n
the treasury July 1 next of nearly
$17,000,000. His estimate in the report
heretofore sent to the committee on
the condition of the treasury fixed the
surpluBat 820,000,000. The probabilities
for the fiscal year 1894 were that in the
absence of some change in the situation
there would be a deficit
Speaking of the frequently repeated
assertion that the treasury was now
really bankrupt, Mr. Foster said:
"Once in awhile, when largr requisi
tions have come in on top of t'wth
other and I did not want to pay them
because we would have to put out
gold, which might be rather low at
that time, we wpuld potter along for a
day or two and then some fellow
would say the treasury was bankrupt
and all that sort of thing."
Mr. Foster said that all his state
ments were based on a continuation of
the pi-esent rate of taxation; if there
were a change, of course his estimates
would not stand. He believed that
$50,000,000 more revenue should be
raised and put into the treasury in or
der to make everything safe and the
conditions favorable for the proper
administration of the affairs of the
government. He offered no sugges
tion as to whether this amount should
be raised by a loan or by
additional taxation. If he were to have
been continued in the office of
secretary of the treasury he would
like to have 850,000,000 added to the
balance, 825,000,000 of which he would
tase to maintain the gold reserve, as
he believed the. treasury would be the
better for having on hand 8125,000,000
of gold. There would be no difficulty
"In trettintr plenty of gold if he had the
inonev to spare, i Nothing was said
about the cause of the present exports
of gold or the probabilities of future
gold shipments, but he said that he
had expected its outflow.
In explanation of the reduction In
his estimated surplus for the close of
the current fiscal year, Mr. Foster said
that the payment of the Choctaw
claim had not been estimated when he
placed the surplus at 820,000,000. Its
payment would take about 83,000,000.
The receipts had also fallen somewhat
below his estimates and at the close of
he fiscal year wouM probably be less
than he had estimated.

Bills on third reading was an order of
business which was passed over owing
to the absence of so many members. In
lieu thereof the house went into com
mittee of the whole for consideration of
bills on general file. (
Horst's bill; house roll No. 73, to pro
vide that actions on promissory notes
must be brought in the county where
one or more of the original makers re
side or may be summoned, was recom
mended for passage.
Howe's bill, house roll No. 1, an
amendment to the constitution provid
ing for investment of the permanent
school fund in school district bonds, was
reported with a slight amendment and
recommended for passage.
House roll No. 89, by Woods, giving
electors the privilege of expressing their
wishes at the next general election on a
proposition for a constitutional conven
tion, was recommended for passage. ,
.. House roll No. 153, by McKesson,'
setting aside one acre of ground in
Wyuka cemetery at Lincoln as a burial
place for deceased union soldiers, was
also recommended for passage.
House roll No. 168, by Iliggins, to
limit jurisdiction of a justice of peace
to the townships wherein he resides,
was considered. Jensen called attention
to the wording and pointed out that to
reach the object desired the bill must
say that suit shall be commenced
against a person only in the township,
wherein such person resides. The bill
House roll No. 09, by Oakley, placing
express companies under control of the
state board of transportation was laid
House roll 181 by Oakley was freely
discussed. The bill was supported by
Oakley, who explained that coal com-
parties, the Colorado and Rock Springs,
treat their coal as advance charges, and!
railroads will not deliver until not only
the cost of coal is paid in advance, but
afoo freight charges are forthcoming,
when in fact the coal is often short in
weight The bill provides that railroads
shall not act as agents for coal com; a
iea. The bill was recommended to pass.
Bribery and "Squealing;.
A bill introduced by Rhodes, house
roll No. 181, is of peculiar interest at
this time, because it relates to the crime
of bribery. Ihe bill makes two changes
in the present law. The first includes ex
ecutive officers in the list of victims of
ducks and jakes, but the other and more
important change makes it possible to
convict only one person, either the one
receiving a bribe or the one offering
boodle. In deciding this matter of con
viction it rests with the rapidity with
which one or the other gets into
court and squeals on tlie other. The
6quealer in all cases is to go free. Rhodes
supported the bill, ui course that was
all right, but when Soderman advocated
its passage a broad smile spread around
Sheridan and felton did not express
any opinion in regard to the justness of
the bill. They kept still. Felton did
not even mention the incident earlv in
the session when he was approached, as
he Bays, and had a chance to get f 1,000,

A Manlao Captured.
Chadrun, Neb., Feb. 27, Saturday
A raving maniao giving the name of
Edward Brice was placed in jail here to
day awaiting identification. When dis
covered he was engaged in digging
with both hands and feet into the side of
a clay bank. His shoes were worn out
and hia hands were badly lacerated by
the stony ground. He gave as a reason
for his search that his wife and children
were buried in the bank and that he
would have to find them and also that
he must kill several people in order to
be even. Be was an entire stranger
here and there was nothing about
him to aid in identification except
pass issued by N. E. Wormley, a Lin
coln, Neb., employment agent, giving
the date Feb. 14 and the train as No. 41,
by which it is supposed he was sent to
work on the B. & M. in Wyoming.
His story is that his father's name
T. A. Brice, living near Fulton. 111., and
that his uncles live at Lyons, 111. As to
how he got from Crawford, Neb., to a
point nine miles west of Chadron, a dis
tance of . thirty miles, he oannot
say. but he was seen at dif
ferent points walking. The
authorities have wired the addresses
given, but have small hopes of hearing
from the parties, as his talk is incoherent
and contradictory. He is about five feet
eieht inches in height of light complex
ion, blue eyes, and weighs about one

An Interesting Letter on sn Interesting
by an Entertaining Writer.
RC8HVILL, Neb., Feb. 20, 1893.
Some time ago you gave your readers
my article "What is Money?" I now
beg space for the following notes and
I will be as brief as my capacity to
"boil down" makes possible, as J know
your columns are valuable.
Every intelligent person, especially a
reformer knows how exceedingly diffi
cult, and how nearly impossible it has
been, and still is, for promulgators of
any new theory or doctrine, however
sousd or useful it may prove to be, to
get the world to practically acknow
ledge its worth.
Christ, Galileo, Columbus among
others are examples.
The "popular" mind runs in grooves.
A strange thing is apt to seem "ridicu
lous" to (almost) everybody. And whs
doesn't know that "truth is stranger
All advanced thinkers, theorists, inno
vators and reformers have realized the
truth of these lines.
"He Is thought a knave or fool
Or bigot plotting crime,
Who for the advancement of his raca
. Is wiser than his time."
The world has frequently been "con-
fustd" by the sudden announcement of
fine-spun" theories and historical doc
trines; but the world's paroxysms on
account thereof were not often the fault
of the said theories and doctrines.
l'eoole in general and some indivi
duals in particular are a good deal slow
er in confession than in conviction. Of
this truth you yourself have daily proof
and it is precisely because of this fact
that political asd other reiorms are so
hard to accomplish.
The above remarks are prefatory to
what I want to say on the regular ques
tion to which I now come.
Language is a system of relative
words or terms, every member relating
to something not one of which however
is itself that something. Our werd
'money" relates to a thing, and is not
itself that thing. It doesn't matter bo
long as the thing to which it relates or
to which we refer, is understood. Ths
thing "money" is the same the world
over, but the relative wora or name re
lating to it differs among different peo
ple. The Sioux Indians some oi wnom
pass th writer's house almost daily,
call money by the relative name,
muzzahscow". Germans use the word
gelt" as their term refering to money,
and bo on through nations, bo much
for "definitions" of anything. A "po
tent" and "Invisible reality" is evi
dently a thing (of some kind) different
from the various relative names or
terms used in speaking about or refer
ing to it.
Now what is the tiling liseiir wen,
we will eay that a hard wind is a "po
tent" and invisible reality. A
rifle ball shot from a rifle while it is fly
ing unseen through the air is a potent
and invisible reality. The thing called
life (of man or boast) is a potent and in
visible reality. A man or norse wnicn
i a thing, is composed of two thipgs
united; one is matuir and the other life
or sDirit. Both are realities whether
separate or united, xne matter or nesn
is a vi.ible reality. The life or spirit
is an invisible reality; and whatever
potency" the man or horse has, as
such, he gets from the Invisible lire or
spirit element bis "intangible essence"
part, and not irom tne visiDie or mate
A dead norse was never Known to
kick an v body. Now when a horse does
kick we naturally .or customarily say,
and it is "proper" to say, "the horse
kicked." But which really did me kick
ing, the yisib.e reality or the invisible
reality? We can easily see mat me
visible reality of the horse taken alone
Is a dead horse, perfectly impotent, and
so the kicking must logically have
been done by the potent and invisible
realitv the life, the spirit which was
using the visible reality, or the flesh,
muscles and bones ar an instrument, a
vehicle, a conductor of manifested po
tency or power the same as Lorenzo
Crounse and E. J. Rosecraaz are being
used respectively as governor of Neb,
and sheriff of Sheridan county.
Well, what are we going to do about
it if it be shown that we can t see
moae? Why, get all we honestly can
of that thine called money, study the
subject thoroughly not (letting "dis
gusted" though Bomewnat "coniuseu
till we understand it the came as we do
other subjects. "
From my other article I quote first as
"Now I shall claim that by money Js
exclusively meant that particular some
thing that is a legal tender lor the pay
ment of debts. Nothing else is money.'
And second: "To show that the money
duality or property or function it an In
visible, intangible essence or entity
take your legal tender U. S. money
across the line (imaginary line) separat
ing U. S. territory from that of some
foreign government. The spirit of the
law, the merely visible expression or
evidence of which is stamped on your
coins and bills which go with them to,
but not across the (Imaginary) line, and
on the other side you will have your
coins and bills absolutely intact and
you can see them and feel them yet
the money attribute can not be seen
any more. You have coins and bills
but no money. Not even the stamps
(which are held by tome to be the
monev 1 though perfect as ever will
make your coins and bills a legal ten
der money. They are dead and only
the carcases are left for what they are
I The first quotation is not disputed.
"Potency" which the comtnercia value
of a dead metal dollar or the take-if-you-please
value of a greenback may
save ia "exchange" in Canada or any
other country is equivalent to the
value of the carcass of the dead bog
(pork) and is cot a money quality at alL
A live U. S. legal tender dollar, or a
horse or hog are compesed as I have
shown of two realities united, matter
and spirit, ths first a visible reality
(matter) the other a poteit invisible
reality (spirit). Now as the carcass of
a dead hog (fat and killed for food)
would likely be worth more (generally)
than the carcass of a dead horse we will
take a li hog and a live dollar with
us to the Canada line and cross it
Thes if crossing said (imaginary) line
has killed the hog as dead as it has
the money principle in the dollar we
shall have two dead carcasses "good
only for what they are worth" though
possibly each may have more value and
will go farther toward paying for a
suit of clothes in Canada than at home."
Thus you see why you imagine you
see a potent and invisible reality
(money) that you can't see.
L. P. Cummins.
With a very few words I wish (for
the present) to close the discussion on
this phase of the money question.
i admire Air. Cummins Ingenuity as a
reasoner. and his ability to make even
a dry subject interesting, but I do not
see that he proves his point, or advan
ces ideas that are of practical value.
Those who claim that money is "a
visible material thing" only claim that
it is "visible," and "material" in the
same sense as a horse, a hog, or a gov
ernor, is "visible." If Mr. Cummins
can prove that a horse is an "invisible
reality," he can certainly prove the
same regarding money. He evidently
sees that to be consistent he must prove
the former ia order to establish the
latter. But the question of matter,
and spirit, and their union is not a part
of the money question, and need not
enter therein. It is a question of meta
physics. About Reform Books.
Bromfield, Neb., Feb. 20, 1892.
Among the thousands of premiums
offered by the old party papers there
are no books treating on the science of
government. I take that as evidence
enough that they are paid to keep the
people in ignorance.
While men are free moral agents why
not improve the opportunity, and let
the subsidized press Btrictly understand
that they can no longer hold their sub
scribers by keeping the people in ignor
ance on such an important eubjec?
There are enough scientific and re
form books to make a generation of
philosophers and every true citizen
appreciates the efforts of the reform
press to put them in circulation that
the voters may not be made dupeB of
any longer. These books enable us to
distinguish truth from error, and fix in
the memory what is becoming to man
instead of abusing the mind by loading
it with sophistry. There ia much need
of independent thought. Too many
rely on others' opinions and are enslav
ed. Those books are bo cheap that all
may have access to the channels of
thought, and it behooves us as Amen
can citizens to throw off the shackles
of prejudice, and walk resolutely be
fore the world guided by well groundd
opinions of our own; for it was through
men and women who had expressed
opinions of their own and dared ex
press them that we progressed.
In the strife between Knowledge and
money, true Knowledge is a treasure
that rascally cashiers and presidents
can cot rob one of. If parents will in
struct their children in tb.3 science of
governmtnt. they will vo'e an intelli
gent ballot at the ago of twenty-one;
while if not Informed they will be very
liable to vote a burden on themselves
and parents. If we should see reform
books offered as a premium by tne sub
sidized press, we would think the g. o.

Then as usual he adds, "The chair
hears none." And in five seconds the
bill would have become a law.
"Mr. Speaker, I object."
Savs the speaker in a tone which
might be interpreted this way "The
gentleman from Georgia (Mr. Watson,
confound him!) objects "
Gniciwus! Wern't tne Tammany fel
lows mad? Didn't they Bnort?
What was this little matter which
was thus thrown on the side-track?
It was a cm 1 proposition to give the
city of New York a quarter of a million
dollars per annum 10 increase her post
office facilities, where they already
have from eight to sixteen free deliv
eries of mail every day.
This democratic housa was willing to
(rive it without a word of objection.
And yet every democrat in congress
knows there are hundreds of rural dis
tricts where tax-payers can't . get mail
once a week
Why not divide things around? Why
not give the towns and villages and
country neighborhoods some of the
blessings of mall facilities?
