Prof. Johnson of Lincoln wrote to
the secretary of the treasury a few days
a go to ascertain whether silver certifl
cates had been redeemed in gold. He
received an answer from the assistant
secretary saying that silver certificates
re redeemed in silver only; and add
ing that the popular error arises from
confounding the treasury notes of 1890
with silver certificates. This is the
error referred to in our last issue.

A one of the people and a firm be
liever in tte principles of the people's
party it appears to me that In the com
ing election nothing can be mortt im
Dort&nt to ua as a party and especially

Important position of supreme judge of
the Slate of Nebraska. Wa talk flip
pantly very often of the three co-ordl- j
nate branches of the government viz, j
the executive, legislative and judicial, j
and imagine that said branches are in
dependent of each other; and of the
three are apt to flatter ourselves with
the idea that, inasmuch as the two
branches of the legislature are elected
by, and go direct from, the people to
make laws, therefore this branch of the
government is the most important and
necessarily the most powerful.
This conception is for all practical
purposes a mere delusion, for the truth
is that the supreme court makes more
laws than tbe legislature.
It is true that we send members to
our state and national legislatures to
frame laws, but when framed, the courts
decide waether or not said laws cor
respond to tbelr interpretation of the
constitution, and said interpretation as
a rule entirely depends upon the influ
ence that was most powerful in placing
the judges on the bench.
Nothing is more patent than this:
That whenever the ruling powers come
in direct conflict with the just demands
of the people, as a rule the courts are
with the oppressors. It has been so
from time Immemorial. It was so in
tbe days of Jeffries. It was so in the
mad days of Judge Gary, when capital
demanded a sacrifice to intimidate labor
It was so in days when the "Slavehold
ing Oligarchy ruled the nation." It
had Its Taney. Today the B. & M. and
tbelr g. o. p. cappers have their Post
Whenever the question of ft judge of
the court is mentioned we are nauseated
with the stale clap-trap of non-parti
sanship, when all history confirms the
fact that the ruling powers have al
ways made it a point to have the judi
cial ermine saturated with the very
quintessence of partisanship, and in
many cases where there was a doubt as
to the opinion of the bench they have
adopted the policy of Jim Flake, not to
fee the lawyers, but to buy the judges.
Let us as populists lay aside this tom
foolery of parrot-like echoing this
senseless cry of a non-partisan judici
ary. Let us be brave and true, and
state clearly what we want, and what
we propose to have; and, whether the
time be loner or short, we will "keep in
In the middle oi the roan" tin we get
In the first place we want a man fully
identified with us In letter and spirit;
whostaDds committed in favor of all
the nrlncioles that, as a party, we de
clare and advocate; who, at all times
aod under all circumstances, has the
courage of his convictions; who
honestly amrms he endorses theumana
platform; and who in said endorsement
only expresses as a man and judge his
sense of what constitutes justice to
those who claim no more, ana yet who
as a rule have heretofore been denied it
Such being my conception of what are
the essentials for a judge of our sup
reme court, I would have him lean
earnestly and tenderly near to the great
warm heart oi the common people, ana
let us relegate to the barbarous past
every vestige or semblance that reminds
of the Jeffries and Norburrys of Eng
land and Ireland, the laneys, Uarys,
Posts and Norvals, of our country, and
enter on a new era of judicial power
that will render just judgment In be
half of the people.
In order to do this we must net play
tbe foolish part that was enacted when
manv were wild to nominate Judge
Gresbam as our standard bearer at
Omaha, which we will do, and which
there are those who are trying hard to
do in seeking tbe nomination oi Judge
Maxwell, who, though in some respects
Is a good man, and for which we accord
him all honor. Is still a republican, un
committed to a single plank in our plat
form, and has done nothing only what
any man with a spark of integrity in
his nature could not help doing regard
ing impeachment of state offiolals, for
even rost naa te conceae tneir guut.
Then again Judge Maxwell has held
the position for 18 years, and Is in very
easy circumstances from the great sile of
his law books. Nebraska has done him
honor, and now in his physical decreoi
tude, it wouia he more than injudicious
to continue mm in position oy our votes.
What we need Is a man of middle age,
with large expenenoe as a lawyer, a
wide-awake man, with courage, with a
clean Insight into ail the tricks, sub
terfuges and hypocrlsls of tbe enemy.
wbo will do justice though the heaven
fall and plutocracy fall with it.
We have the timber, we know the
man, and when the bell of the peop'e
rings tbe hour bis name will be given
to them. Till that time comes, let ua lay
alde all trifling la g Aag outside our
os ranks, we have our Weaver's,
Allen's and McKelghans, and It Is even
more important that we have for sup
reme iudaM a maa fully Identified with

to make ud thea groun populist.

Gladstone the Cat
Losdok, July 29. The debate on the.
home rule bill was brought to a close
last night Joseph Chamberlain Union
ist, in protesting against Mr.
Gladstone's enforcement of closure,
compared him to Herod. T. P. O'Con
nor, Irish member, hissed "Judas" at
Chamberlain which the other Irish
membera repeated in a chorus several
Then came a scene unprecedented
in Parliamentary history. Mr. Mellor
gave in a weak voice the customary
directions. The Conservatives, bow
ever, flatly refused to quit tbe house.
Vicary Gibba, Gibbon Bowles ana
William Iianbury shouted to the
chairman that he must first
call Mr. O'Connor to order for having
called Mr. Chamberlain namea Mr.
Mellor protested that he had not
heard the epithet in question. No
body told him what Mr. O'Connor had
said, so he eat helpless and unen
lightened before the house, white tne
members crowded forward in excited
groups, shaking their fists and shout
ing their demands. . ,
Meantime half of the Un.on-
ists bad climbed to the benches and
were shouttinir 'Gaa-t" "Gagl" Others
were ktruinrlinir in the aisles or be
tween the benches with Radical, Lib
eral or Irish antagonist. Curses, yells
of pain and gross insults were heard
on every aide.
John Logan, Liberal, ran down to
the first opposition bench and began
upbraiding Edward Carson, a Tory.
As he shook his fist under Mr. u.r-
aon's nose, George Wyndham and
William Fisher jumped to the assist
ance of their party colleague, seized
Mr. Logan by the necK, threw mm to
the floor head first and then bundled
him under a bench. Somebody
smashed Tim Healv's high bat down
over his eyes. Ilealy tore on tne
bat and sprang into the aisle in
full fighting posture, just as Mr.
Banbury, still shouting that the
chairman must name Mr. O'Connor,
was trying to get by. Mr. Hanbury
was knocked over a bench by tbe
force of the collision before Mr.
Ilealy got In a blow. A free flffht
then broke out at the gangway. The
center of it was William Redmond,
Parnellite, who had taken advantage
of the general license to push over
Colonel Saunderson, the champion of
the men of Ulster. Haunderson was
rescued and led tbe attack on the
Blows were struck right and left
Members fell and were picked up by
their friends , to fight again. The
whole space between the front
benches was filled with a struggling,
cursing mass of members, striking,
clawing and upsetting each other.
Manful efforts were made to separate
the combatants. Both sergeants-at
arms forced their way through the
thick of the fight, but as fast as one
group was pacified another came to
Eventually Mr. Gladstone begged
Edward Majoribanks, a sturdy Lib
eral, to do something to stop the fight
ing. Mr. Majoribanks dug his way
throusrh the tangled mass of belliger
ents and by repeated appeals in the
name of the premier succeeded in
stemming the conflict Colonel Saun
derson emerged first from the crowd
of fighters. He was holding a bunch
of keys to his black eye. Others fol
lowed In more or less damaged condi
tion. Mr. Gladstone, sitting uprignt,
had watched the scene with Inflamed
face and an expression of Borrow, in
dignation and astonishment, which
will never be effaced from the memory
of those observing it
Chairman Mellor sent for Speaker
Peel as soon as order was restored.
When the speaker entered several
Conservatives rose and pointing to
Mr. Gladstone exclaimed: "There sits
the author of it all."
While Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Balfour
and Mr. Mellor conferred as to what
should be done, the combatants were
comparing notes. Not a few of them
showed the effects of rough handling.
Tim Ilealy had received a bard blow
in the face and one cheek was badly
swollen. William Redmond also had
a bad spot on his faee.
The hum of voices died out as
Speaker Peel, stern and dignified, took
the chair. A alight chew waa given
for him and then Mr. Mellor, aa chair
man of the committee, reported to Mr.
Peel, as speaker of the house, what had
occurred, and the speaker at once ap
pealed to the party leaders to tell him
further what occurred. Cheers and
calls fur Mr. Uladstone brought tbe
premier to his feet He said:
regret to aay that neither my eye nor
ears enable we to give a very elear ao
count o the affair."
Mr, Peel then aatdi "I have arrived

THE CRAFTY NORMAN.
Mow a Fsrraor Taraad tbe Tables ea the
By way of illustration of the pro
verbial craftiness of the Norman peas
antry, an amusing story la related,
which, it not in strict accordance with
fact, has at least the merit of origin
ality. A certain baker, in business in a
small town, obtained his supply of
butter from a farmer in the neighbor
hood. One fine day he discovered that
the pats, whleh were supposed to
weigh three pounds each, were not up
to the standard, and further examina
tion revealed a steady diminution in
the daily provision. At last the baker
lodged a formal complaint against the
farmer, and the affair was brought be
fore tbe local court "Have you any
scales?" Inquired the magistrate.
Yea, monsieur le juge," was the ready
reply. "And have you any weights?"
continued the judge. An answer this
time in the negative was as promptly
given. "But uow do you manage to
weigh your butter?" asked the magis
trate. Then the farmer related that ever
siuce the baker had taken his butter
he had returned the compliment by
buying his bread. Tbe baker sup
plied him with three-pound loaves,
and he used them as weights for his
butter. "It Is hla fault, not mine, if
the weight Is not correct," added the
farmer, who was speedily acquitted
and left the court In triumph with an
escort of friends and admirers. Since
this trial the farmer is said to have
been supplied with more than his due
provision of bread, but be has taken
good care not to fall into the opposite
error, ana tbe baker has now his
three-pound pats of butter full
weight, but not an ounce mora

by accident tbe other day two women
appeared, each claiming to be his
widow. After some consultation they
came to an amicable agreement,
whereby one took possession of the
