SHILLING BS03-' CLAW
Within a few ds there has been
goud deal of discussion in legislative
circle concerning- a certain healthy,
well developed claim for leglfla.lve
suppllei put in by Shilling uroe-,

Some of Shilling Bros.' competitors
la bubloess have undertaken to fhow
up outrageous overcharges in tbi
claim. We are not well enough pohted
on such matters to pass judgemect,but
It certainly would be io order for the
houte to appoint a special committee to
Invettlcate the matter.
v f . iiion f.iUnurlnir th bad ex 1
amples of bl predecessors, last fall
ordered a vat quanlty and variety of
supplies for the use o' the legislature,
All these supplies, except such as were
used in making repairs, were ordered
by Mr. Allen without a shadow of law
Instead or ordering supplies of differ
ent kinds of regular dealers, Mr. Allen
adopted the plan of ordering allsortsof
iroodsof Shilling Dros.,druggUts. They
furnished not only drugs.but hardware
dry goods, groceries, furniture, lumber,
stationery and totlons. A lew exam
pies from their bill will show the vari
etv of articles furnished by these enter

But to come to the point: smiling
Bros, have put In a bill for supplies
for the house aggregating $2,314.48.
... it .
They were very careful to nave ine
odd cents Just right. And the commit
tee on accounts and expenditures hfcve
allowed the claim down to tne last
Mr. Felton, chairman of the commit
tee did his best to havs the bill cut
down, but was sat down on by the com
mittee. Mr. Porter was absent irom
the committee when the claim was al-
owed. Mr. Heal says he didn't vote
either way. Hence the blame lor al
lowing the claim must rest on Repre
sentatives Krue, Sinclair, Sheridan,
James, Dew and Goldsmith. .
The following are a few of the
articles selected at random, with
the prices charged by Shilling
Bros, set in the first column, and in the
second column pries for which the
articles could have been purchased
from regular retail dealers according to
the statements of those who are flght-
ng this claim:
4 Mtl claw hammers,
doz. patnnt mop slicks,
10 lbs. wlilte gum,
7 guls. fluorine,
1100 ft weather strlpplcg.
3 pol. plate trlaxti,
U do I b'adud pocket knives,
I pore, wawb balus,
While Shilling Bros, advertise them
selves as wholeeule dealers, they have
In many cases charged more than usual
But this is not all. The house In
structed Its chief clerk to keep strict
account of all supplies actually used by
the house. This we believe has been
done. But an examination of the rec
ords In his office shows that only a
mere fraction of the stuff listod in
Shilling Bros', bill has ben actually
used by the house. The chief clerk
disclaims all responsibility for the al
lowance of their claim.
All the evidence that has been of
fered as to the correctness of the bill i
found In the following tuyBtlc symbol:
"O. K -John C. Allen."
Now it may be true that all these
supples were brought to the state house
and are now stored away eately some
where In the basement. But where
will they be when the next legislature
What right has the legislature to pay
for a lot of stuff It never wanted, never
ordered, &ever saw, and never used?
What right has It to pay for supplies at
higher than retail prices when It ought
to get them at wholesale prices? What
right has the legislature to endorse
tho acta of a slf-cinstltuted gi-ardlan,
who la suspected of being In league
with tho men who furnlshrd supplies,
to rob the state?
Shilling Bros', bill has beeu allowed by
the coin in it tee, but has not been paid.
It Is within the rower of the hou.i to
call It back and put It in the hands of a
spi-ciat commit ee for investigation.
Tals should be done and without delay.

A CHANGE 18 00MINO-
During the past two years the popu
lists of Kansas and Nebraska hsve
found it practically impossible to in
crease tnclr numbers by gaining con
verts from the two old political parties.
In fact they have really lost more than
they have gained. The two old parties
have stood like rocks; though beaten
by the storms of populist argument and
eloquence, they have shown no signs of
disintegration. Men have turned a
deaf ear to argument and clung blindly
to their old parties.
Populist workers can testify to the
truth of the above statements from
Though such a state of affairs bas
been very discouraging, intelligent
populists have been buoyed up with the
absolute conviction that they are righ t
and the abiding hope that a general
breaking up must come soon. They
have said within themselves: ''We
have the truth; it is mighty and will
That the time for a realization of this
hope is near at ha-d do intelligent ob
server can dispute, '
Republicans are beginning to realize
that their party is dead as a national
organization and utterly corrupt as a
state organization in Nebraska. They
must soon decide whether in future to
affiliate with the people's party or tho

of the democratic party rea'ize that

of the money power and no longer

The time Is ripe for a new grouping
of political forces.
Hear a parable of the sewer: She
sat down to sew and as she sewed she
thought to her.elf, a she had of t?n done
before: "How nice it would be if I only
bad a new sewing machine." Then
her eyes fell on a copy of The Alli
ance-Independent (whlcli is found in
all well regulated populist homes) and
she saw therein a picture of a
beautiful machine. And straightway
she arose, and said to her husband, and
to her boys and girls: "I pray thee go
forth and visit all our neighbors even
to a distance of several miles, and per
suade them all to take The Almance
Independent, the greatest reform pa
per in the west." And straightway the
sewer set them all an example by going
forth and taking ton subscriptions in
one day, and besides she had plenty of
time to talk to all her lady friends
about the latest styles of spring bonnets
an many other things. And the hus
band and the boys followed her example
(except as to talking about spring bon
nets) and In less than one week she had
enough names to secure a fine "Colum
bian." sewing machine. And when she
received it, she found it "a thing of
beauty and a joy forever.
Alliance speakers have dwelt much
on the increase of wealth In the north

reports. At the same time they have
asserted that the farmers and wage
earners of that section are In little if

Ukim UP THE J0JR3ALS-
Again we deoire to ca'l the attention
of rxjth houses of tho legislature to the
appropriations to b-) voted for making
up the journals. Heretofore these ap
propriatlonsf have been so outrageously
large as to be worthy of no other name
than steals- A gentleman who is thor
oughly competent to pass an opinion,
said to the writer the other day: "The
job of making up either the house or
the FeDate journal isn't worth over
$."00." In a former ar'Jcle we asserted
that an ample and liberal appropria
tion for making up tbe journals would

$700 for the senate journal.

WHAT IMPE4.0HMENT MEANS-
As the word "impeachment" is des
tined to be used a million times or more
In Nebraska within the next month, a
clear understanding of its purport is
A great many people nave a wrong
Idea as to what the word means.
It is commonly believed that to im
peach a man is to prove him guilty of
high crimes and misdemeanors, and
turn him out of office. Such la not the
An impeachment is very much the
same as an indictment. A grand jury
indicts an individual for a criminal
violation of law, but it does not prove
him guilty. It simply formulates
charges against htm. He must then be
arrested and tried. If he is able to
prove his innocence in court he is ac
quitted. Still the fact remains that he
la case of impeachment the legisla
ture fills a place very like that of a
grand jury. It inquires into the con
duct of a state officer. If it finds, in
such conduct, acts that amajority of its
members believe to be "high crimes
and misdemeanors," it may formulate
and adopt articles of impeachment, or
in other words indict the officer. The
accused is thus Impeached, but not
convicted. If be establishes his Inno
cence before the supreme court of the
stase, he is acquitted. Still the fact
remains that he was impeached.
Debating clubs sometimes have elo
quent discussions over the question:
"Was Andrew Johnson, presldentof the
United States, impeached?" Th differ
ence of opinion arises solely from a
misunderstanding of what "Impeach"
Webster defines the word thus: "To
charge with crime or misdemeanor; to
accuse; especially to charge an officer
with misbehavior in office."
Of course Andrew Johnson wa Im
peached. Nevertheless his trial re
sulted In acquittal.
,The legislature of Nebraska may, in
joint session of the two hones, im
peach any state officer, bring him to
trial before the supreme court, and
temporarily deprive him of his office.
But the court alone has the power to
decide whether or not the officer is
guilty. Whatever the decision may be
tbe fact remains that the officer has
THE STREET RAILWAY BILL.
The street railway bill, introduced
in the senate by Senator Smith and in
the house by Representative Scott, is
receiving a good deal of severe criti
cism. We have spent some time Inves
tigating the measure, and must say
that its demerits appear a good deal
more striking than Its merits.
It was prepared by a man named
Goldlng who has lived in Kearney for
several years. The people of that city
will no doubt smile broadly when
they hear that he is posing as a
reformer. We believe the bill has
been got'tn up solely in the Interest of
established street car companies, and
to discourage competition. Messrs
Smith and Scott have no doubt acted
honestly but we suspect that they have
been imposed upon.
The bill must come before the senate
again, and that body will do well to
give it a quietus.

A PATTERN PLEA.
Joley The Alliance-Independent
In Behalf of ibe Impeached
TLe State Journal and ita yelping
psck of , me-tooV are trying-hard to
f-.;ine some defense, plea or apology to
t rak th force of public opinion against
the impeached state officers. Their
i.iaurd. ring slobbering efforts excite
by turns pity and disgust in the minds
o intelligent people. We feel sorry
for them, and propose to help them out,
to set them a pattern as it were. So
Gentlemen ot the Legislature: You
blood-thirsty wreckers of reputations
Don t you know that your "star-cham
ber methods" are a disgrace to clvlliza
tlon? They are unamerican. They are
Spanish, quite Spanish you know.
What do you mean by taking men. eood
reputable citizens, before a committee
with no one near "to molest or make
afraid" aDd asking them to tell the
plain simple truth! Why. you should
have had some plusr-uerlr pettifopfrini?
lawyer to cross question, and bull-doze,
and torture these witnesses so as to
prevent them from telling the truth
Then you should have had your in
vestigations right in the open sessions
of the house so as to give tbe State
Journal gang a chance to grt in their
work. Then whenever any man had
dared say anything reflecting on the
state officers, the Journal could have
branded him aa a black-mailer, a dis
reputable character, a moral leper and
all that. Then too by Investigating in
open house you would have frittered
away the whole session, and wouldn't
have had any time to pas that measly
H. R. 33, which will bankrupt the rail
toads of th state.
You infamous, Spanish inquisitorial.
star chamber persecutors, beware how
you trifle with the reputations of great
men who hold office. It s all right to go
gunning after "ducks and lakes." In
deed it is decidedly funny. It's all right
to smirch the character of an indepen
dent sargeant-at-arms. Didn't he cast
reflections on our own great silver
tongued, U. P. orator? It would have
been all right to deprive him of his
office and fend him home in disgrace.
In fact almost every republican In the
house would have voted for it. But
when it comes to Impeaching state ofR
crs. the case U different. Whv. don't
you know, the people elected these men
to office after their misdemeanors had
been exposed? What do you mean then
by golog behind the returns, and dig
ging up these old matters? Just you wait
Two years from now, tha people will
sit down on every mother's eon of you.
You bold, bad, headstrong persecu
tors, pause in your mad career and
hearken to the voice of reason: Don't
you know that you have multiplied the
duties of these men, till they have no
time to attend to such small matters as
building cell-houses, buying coal, etc?
Now for instance, there's Johnny Allen.
He Is vice president of the . WIndom
bank out at University Place, and a
director of the Industrial and Savings
bank of Lincoln. And theres J. E.
Hill, viee president of the Industrial
and .Savings bank, and our own George
H. Hastings a director of the same.
Don't you know, gentlemen, that It takes
lots of time, thought and energy to run
the banking business successfully? A
bank you know, has got to be run on
business principles If it isn't it'll
"bust." They don's accept and approve
forged paper In banks They don't pay
money on checks with payee's name
forgt d on the back. ".The cashier don't
throw out $5,000 or $10,000 to a peniten
tiary contractor, or some other boodler
without note, account, or record, and
say:" here go and spend this money to
s - It your notions, and when Its gone
call for more." Such things are all
right for a Board of Public Lands and
Buildings, handling state paper and
eialo muuey, but it don't go with bank
ers. It's too dangerous and expensive.
If you don't believe it, just Investigate
the Wlndom bank, or tho Industrial
and Savings bank. You'll find them
mn on business principles (perhaps on
tato funds too). Yes, gentlemen,
you'll find that thee officer know how
to do business. No doubt they could
attend to the state' buslnes properly
If they only bad time.
Then again, recollect that these state

Remember that the state funds have to

to be thought of not for the paltrv
sum of $2,000 a year. Why tht offi

to $o0.000 apiece on the side, by these
enterprises. You know the bible says: '
Where the treasure is, there will the
heart be also," and of course these men
are justified by scripture in devoting
their time and energies to those enter
prises thatyield the boodle And where
is the blaspheming skeptic that dare
deny it? ou say: "if they didn't
have time to attend to public business,
they should have employe honest men

are verdant. Don't you know it wasn't
