in that court, if I mistake not, these
men have already been declared guilty
The decision Is the culminating dis
grace of our highest judicial tribunal
But in the light of past events, what
elss could be expected of the two rail
road judges? Have they ever once
decided a question other than as their
masters bid them? Have tbey not a'
ways prostituted their high offices to
partisan ends? In their decision man

anyone expect these railroad judges to
decide otherwise than for their politi

Over two months ago. In my letters
to the state press, I predicted that Post
and Norval would decide to acquit these
men and that Judge Maxwell would
decide to convict. In doing so I did
not pretend to know anything from the
inside, I did not claim any superior
knowledge, I simply judged from the
character of the men.
But out of this whole decision, which
Influenced as it was by the railroads, Is
a disgrace to the state of Nebraska,
shines one glorious fact: We have one
incorruptible judge. On the supreme
bench is one honest man. He led the
people to believe as much by his decis
ions in the Boyd case and the Kruse-
Norton case. He has blazoned It in
letters of light on the history cf his
state by his decision in the impeach
ment cases. He is a man whom money
cai not buy, whom power can not
frighten, whom party can not swerve.
In every case where he could sea bis
duty be has fearlessly performed that
duty. He is the venerable chief Justice
and his name is Samuel Maxwell.

turning point in the politics of this

, SILLT TWADDLE-
The claim of a fewrallrotd "Fridays"
and small-bore republican weeklies over
the state that the freight rate law pass
ed by the last legislature will in certain
Instances rsiso present local rate, is
the silliest twaddle.
The bill specifically provider that in
"no care shall rates be higher than
those in force on January 1, 1893."
Besides this is a "maximum rate bill.
It fixes a point above which rates can
not go. It does not say that rates must
go up to that limit, but that they shall
not go over it.
The law makes an average cut of 20
per cent, on all rates In force in the
state at the time of its passage. The
only instances where it fixes a limit
higher than rates now charged are
1. The local rates fixed by the law
are of course higher than through rates
charged on interstate traffic. Over this
traffic a state law can have no possible
effect. This is solely governed by the
interstate commission, and the New
berry bill will bave no more to do with
it than the Iowa rate bill had to do
with rates in Nebraska.
2. The maximum rates are in some
cages higher than the special rates
heretofore allowed to certain pet manu
facturing concerns and wholesale deal
ers. Over these rates the law can
possibly have no effect as they are fixed
by agreement between the railroad com
panies and the private concerns and
have nothing to do with the public. If
they are raised the railroads must do it
on their own motion.
Outside of these two classes the law
reduces all rates in effect in the state
of Nebraska. If snyone tells you any
thing to the contrary, set him down as
either a tool of the railroads who is
talking for effect, or an ignoramus who
does not know what he says.
If it were really a fact that the law
raises rates as claimed by these two-by-four
"Fridays" wou'd all tho railroads
of the west prepare to make a strenu
ous fight against It as they have done?
The claim of the railroad companies is
that it will break them up. It certainly
would not do so, if it raises rates, would
Altogether the question is too silly a
one to raise among men who understand
the facts. I have however received a
number of letters and seen a number of
newspaper clippings concerning the
matter and, as I had something to do
with getting up the bill, I take this
method of answering.
Below is a sample clipping from a
Valentine paper. The advices tpoken
of here are going to every town In the
"Several Omaha firms have written
to the merchants stating that when the
Newberry bill takes effect in July It
will make a difference in freight rates
from Omaha to Valentine as follows:
The freight charges on first class freight
will be 21 cents perhundred cheaper, on
second class It will be 18 cents per
hundred cheaper, on third class it will
be 13 cents cheaper and on fourth class
It will te 8 cents cheaper." J. A. E.
THE DEATH KNELL.
On Monday morning before the sup
reme court handed In its decision in
the afternoon, the following appeared
in the Bee as part of aleadingedltorial:
"The future of the republican party
of Nebraska is in the hands of the
supreme court. The impeached state
officers were elected as representative
republicans and If their conduct Is con
doued by a republican court the party
will rightfully be chargeable with the
responsibility for the aeta of the Im
peached officials and the verdict of the
court. In the high court of public
opinion, to which all public men and
fartles are accountable, the supreme
udges will be judged by the standard
of public morals which they shall set
up In this case for the political agents
of the state.
There can be no middle ground for
the court to stand upon. There is no
place in the verdict for a reprimand or
a whitewash, lhe court must either
declare by iti verdict that these offi
cials are unfit to be reinstated as custo
dians of nublic oronertv and managers
of the affairs of state, or they must

recklessness and indefensible negll

RiVE THE AMERICAS HOME
Under the above heading la the June
iesse of tho Arena is one of the finest
articles on the money question we ever
remember to have read.
It opens by quoting the famous sen
tence from the American Monetary
"A shrinkage in the volume of the
currency has canted more misery than
war, famine, or pestilence, and more In
justice than ail the bad laws ever en
acted." It shows thatin England from 1320 to
1340 under a contraction of the cur
rency that the actual number of land
owners decreased rrom lou.Uw to
It shows that In the United States
from 1880 to 1900 under a similar
contraction of the currency the de
crease will be fully as rapid. To prove
this the writer quotes liberally frooj
the census report of 1890. Here is one
of the quotations from Hon. Robert P.
porter, chief of the census bureau.
Tbb is for the state of Massachusetts
"The mortgage movement of the ten
years, (1880 to 1890) which has been an
increas.ng one without interruption,
began with an incurred debt of 128,
176,133 in 1880. and ended with 175,-
626,344 In 1889, an increase of 168.05
per cent, while the population in
creased but 26.57 per cent in the same
As with Massachusetts, bo with the
rest of the Union.
The writer then goes on to speak of
the men who hold these mortgages,
who have charged f rem 10 to 144 per
cent, interest per annum. He says:
"These inhuman vultures are the
ones to tell you that there is plenty of
money in the country u you nave any
thlog to get it with; yet one of them
(while boasting that he had entered
692 chattel mortgages in the last four
months) told me that he never maorsea
a note unless he bad collateral on it
which would sell for double the amount
under the sheriff's hammer."
He goes on to show the enormous
accruing power of money at compound
interest. He shows that one ef the
financial brigands, shaving notes at 18
per cent, which 1 is not uncommon,
could in one hundred years only, make
one dollar bring him 115,145,007. Then
he shows how this effect is still more
heightened by the contraction of the
currency, which he proceeds to de
nounce as follows:
"lhe shrinkage of the volume of cur
rency since 1870 throughout ths civil
ized world, has caused more business
failures, more misery, more heartache,
more suicides, more ruined homes, and
made more drunkards, than all other
"It has filled our country with rented
farms, our cities with tramps and mil
lionaires, both Inimical to the best in
terests of the people.
"The continual strain of trying to
keep up under adverse circumstances
has filled our insane asylums with bank
rupts, our poor houses with paupers and
our prisons with criminals
"Legislation for a quarter of a century
bas discriminated in favor of unem
ployed idle capital, and against tbe
wealth producers of our country."
He then cites the case of a farmer
who bought a farm for $15,000 in 1872.
Paid $500.00 down. He is industrious
and the first year be pays 12000 to
wards the debt. Then silver 1b demon
etized in '73, the panic comes and from
that on he gets farther and farther be
In 1893 he has paid $24,500 in interest
and principal on that debt and still
owes over $5,000, for which a mortgage
covers the entire farm. The mortgage
is foreclosed he loses all the improve
ments he has put on tbe land and $24,-
But the writer sees one ray of hope.
This ir'quitous state of things has
called together some of tbe greatest
minds In the nation who are attempting
"This movement has inspired the
farmer with new courage and the me
chanic with renewed hope. Four mill
ions of men are today members of orga
nizations who are demanding some or
all of the following laws:
"An Increase of the volume of full
legal tender money to $50 per capita.
"The unlimited free coinage of silver.
"The sub-treasury and farm-loan plan.
"Tbe graduated income tax.
"Postal savings banks.
"These men are fast getting together
and then we shall bave prosperity for
tbe producer. Over a million voted at
the election of 1892 for these avowed
obi ects; and were the election to be
held again today, four times that num
ber would be recorded for these princi
ples." This is rather a hopeful picture to
populists, coming as it does from an
eastern writer in an eastern magazine.
Truly, "the world ds move."
The article goes on to show that in
every instance in the world's history,
contraction of ths currency has been
followed by misery, bankruptcy and
want, and that almost every liberal
Issue of money has been followed by a
blaie of unprecedented prosperly.
The great awakening oomee on apace.
The light of that doctrine taught aw
long by ths detpUed greenbackers and
Weavertte is spreading throughout
ths land. It Is beginning ti penetrate
even into ths hide-bound east. Ths

The following i clipped from last
week's latue of tbe Grand Island Demo
crat: "We have received another letter
from the !'", ei'or who wrote
the vindicatw lr A m P at during
the campaign two yeat ago. Hh mya
his bill for tbe contract ku never yet
b;ea paid and wauts to know it thr9 is
any way to force the collection. We
don't know of any. Tne Leon editor
might get even by publishing to
tbe wor'a that he lied when he wrote
tbe viod cation ami that the charges
made againsi. Pon "ere true, and state
the facts in regard to the matter as he
knoviff them to tw. Men who will write
vindicating articles for political office
seekers for mon-y are not entitled to
much sympathy if the vindicated
gentleman refuses to pay after he has
had tho hon.fitnf tha vindication. Of
course it does out reflect much credit
on the vindicated gentleman to refuse
vnt tha vindicator daces him
self on tbe level with him and should
take his medicine."
The above Is cited to throw a little
light upon the character of the man
who wrote tbe opinion acquitting the
Infamous state house ring in the late
A man who would deliberately ruin
the fifteen-year-old daughter of a friend
and then refuse to make reparation, a
man who when charged with this
offense in a political campaign, would
hire a Jim Crow editor to "vindicate"
him from the charge and then refuse to
pay this editor the amount on which he
had agieed, it about such a man as
would be capable of standing in with
the gang who have been robbing the
people of Nebraska for years.
A man. farther, who as a lawyer and as
a district judge,' has always stood by
the railroads and against the people
whom those railroads have injured; a
man who, as supreme judge, at least on
two occasions, has sunk his high judi
cial position into the mire of partisan
politics, a man who brought on h maelf
the deserved rebuke from the venerable
chief justice that he had "interpolated
and interlined a decision after court
hours," such a man would bs fully ca
pable of attempting to uphold the rot
ten ring that Infests Nebraska's state
Even when a uan like Norval hesi
tated to take such a step, this man Post
dragged the judicial ermine through
the mire of dishonesty and corruption
to save his political friends.
People of Nebraska, behold your
judge a disgrace to the judiciary, to bis
party and to bis state! O, that Ne
braska, though her capital has long
been a "den of thieves," might haye
been spared this crowning shame!
Well, there Is one consolation. The
laws of God and man may be overridden
bv t is gang. And they may be de
clared free by the act of this railroad
hireling called a judge. But in return
for the sense of justice which he has
outraged, the name of ' Post" will go
down to posterity as an anathema, a by
word and a term of reproach.
THE POWER BEHIND THE THE0NE
The week's delay in giving out the
decision in the impeachment cases has
caused quite a good deal of conjecture.
The Omaha Bee in its Sunday edition
explains it something in this wise: It
88 vs that when the court met on May
29, Judge Norval was still undecided,
Maxwell was then for conviction and
Post for acquittal. Up to that time
the impeached officers had confidently
expected a unanimous acquittal. After
the week's adjournment they became
frightened. Something had to be done.
The Bee goes on to say:
'Tt. ta ulloffpd that the railroads were
asked to use their influence to induce
Judge Norval to look at the evidence
in the impeachment cases in the same
Horht on .TurtiTA Post and were narticu-
larly alarmed over lhe outlook as Judge

with Chief Justice Maxwell. The rail-

and It is now tne general impression in
Lincoln, and the accused officials share
it, that when the supreme court meets
on Monday there will be a majority
and minority report in the impeachment
It is needless to say that the majority
decislon'was as predicted: Postjand Nor
val for acquittal.

the amount.o' gold in the treasury was

circles that the gold bugs will force an
Isbue of bond? or bankrupt the treasury.
The tone of our exchanges shows
that the populisms aie gaining all over

Cleveland seems to be attempting
to build a new democratic party out of
the monopoly wings of the two old
parties. The plutocrats are getting bo
afraid of that populist host which is
marching on from the west that it will

People of the coast are charging the
president with collusion with the in
famous six companies of the Chinese in
evading the Geary law. They claim to
have indisputable proof of the fact that
Cleveland agreed with the Chinese
minister that he would not attempt to
enforce the law.
The attempt of the plutocrats to raise

eyes to the real issues does not seem to
