G0IH0 TO WASHI50T05,
Some time ago I received from Con
greiamon Rem an Invitation to spend
the coming year la Washington in tbe
capacity of bis private aecretary. I re
plied that my first duty was to see The
Alliance-Independent put on a
ound basis, and that I might accept his
kind offer, when that was accomplished.
Feeling certain that our reorganization
will be effected September 6th, I feel
at liberty to announce that I shall go to
Washington shortly after that date un
less the extra session comes to an end.
This move does not mean that I will
over my connection with the paper. I
hall have charge of the Washington
department, and Bhall aim to mako It
one of the most valuable features of the
paper. In addition I hope I shall be able
,to do considerable editorial writing.
C According to present plane, one of the
best editorial writers in the country,
and one in whom the people 6f Nebraska
have great confidence, will take my
place ss m&ssglsg'editor. cl do sot feel
at liberty to announce his name until
the reorganization is effected.

KEBEASIA IS C0SGREE3
Sebraka has a right to be proud el
the prominence and influence tbe has
attained through her representatives In
congress. For more than twenty years
Nebraska was In that list of western
stales which the eastern manufactures
and money-loaaers relied on to roll up
majorities for candidates who would
faithfully work for the Interests of the
east against the Interests of the west.
Previous to 1890, there was never but
one Nebraska man who had the cour
age, ability and patriotism to stand up
for the weat against the east in con
gress. That man gained a national
reputation, and today millions of true
and loyal men all over the union love
and honor the rrand old soldier, and
battler for human righta, General Van
Wyck. But the corporations marked
him for their prey, and by means most
foul and corrupt they retired him from
the United States senate.
But the triumph of the corporations
in Nebraska was short-lived. Three
years after General Van Wyck was
slaughtered, tbe people arose In their
might and asserted their right to be
represented in congress. . They elected
to the lower house three men who came
fresh from tbe people, whose sympa
thiea were with the people, and who
had tbe courage and ability to atand up
for the masses agalnat tbe classes, for
the west against the east
Each of these men although lnex
pcrlencedln political life, made his
mark: McKelgban delivered a speech
on free coinage that was read by mill
ions and pronounced masterly and
unanswerable; Bryan delivered a speech
on tbe tariff that at once gave hiai a
national reputation; Kern introduced a
bill for government banking that at
tracted the attention of reformers In all
parti of the country; and all three con
sistently and ably championed tbe
rights and interests of the people of
their state and section.
Last year Nebraska made another
advance on the same iine by electing a
grand broad-minded man to a seat in
the United States senate. It had be
come a custom, "more boxored in the
breach than la the observance" for new
senators to remain quiet, and humble
listeners for a year or two before they
should take an active part ia the de
liberations of that dignified body... But
Senator Allen has reduoed that custom
to a state of "innocuous desuetude."
Al though the extra session is only three
weeks old, Senator Allen has already
made himself well and favorably known
to the reading pnbllo, and Is recognized
in Washington as the peer ef any sena
tor. He has achieved this prominence
by offering amendments to two'in
portent bills and by making one of the
ablest speeches yet made on the finan
When Voorhees rushed to the relief
of tbe national bankers with a bill pro
viding that they might issue bank
notes to the par vulue of the bonds de
posited Instead of 00 per cent, as at
present, Senator Allen quietly arose
and offered an amendment providing
that, If this concession should be made
to the bankers, the government should
hold back the interest on the bonds de
posited to secure additional currency.
This made the minions of Wall street
indignant, but in spite of their wrath
fuled nunclations Senator Allen's
amendment received eleven votes.
When the committee on coinage
offered a bill for the repeal of the Sher
man law coupled with a scnseleHs de
claration in favor of bimetallism, Allen
promptly put in an amendment provid
ing for the free coinage of silver at 16
tol Then when opportunity offered he
followed this with a masterly, and pow
erful speech which occupied six f ago
of the Congressional Record.
In the prcsont house Bryan has more
than sustained the reputation he made
two years ago, and has endeared him
self to the people by his noble effort in
behalf of silver coinage. Ills speech
has attracted more attention than that
of any other member, and It is eaid a
million copies will be distributed In the
coming campaign so great is the popu
lar demand for it.
Despite ridicule and opposition Bryan
succeeded In retaining his place on the
ways and tnt ass committee. McKel
ghan was reappointed to his old place on
tbe coinage committee, one of the most
Important, and Kern was reappointed
on the committee on Indian affairs, aud
on agricultural expenditures.
The republican member from Ne
braska illi not fare so well. Mercer gut
on the committee on public buildings
where be will spend his .time log-roll
ing to get a public building for South
Omaha. IIlner got on the committee
on agriculture, Molklejohn was placed
en the coiumliwe on public land. It
U safe to predict that neither of the
three will attract much attenUon In any
way. About all they will d will be to
kill tie urns of Bryan, MKdghm
and Ken whea any great Mumaurt in
the interest of the rotates ctnce up for
a vote. Mr. Maadorsoa has done noth
tog worthy of nota ttcept to champion
the causa of tbe national buUi in

In the national houte a great
Usetlng vote ha occurred which shows
more conclusively than anything else
where our representatives ttand, On
Monday afternoon Kern, McKelgban
and Bryan stood for silver and human
ity. Htlner, Mercer and MeiklejohnJ
stood for gold and plutocracy.
On the amendment for free coinage
at 16 to 1, Kem, McEeighan aad Bryanj
voted "ave:"' Hainer. Meikleiohn and!
Mercer voted "Bay."
Be it said to their honor and credit,
Kem, McKelgban and Bryan refused to
auDDort a chance of ratio, and voted
agalnat unconditional repeal.
Meiklejobn and Hainer voted for the
ratio of 20 to 1. and agalnat uncondi
tional repeal as a cheap method
straddling the issue, and trying
hoodwink tbeir constituents. But Mer
cer was braver and more consistent
He voted for unconditional repeal.
THE CRIME OF 93.
The greatest crime of the century i
now well nigh committed. The over
whelming majority given for uncondi
tional repeal in the bouse foreshadow
Its passage In the senate.
The "crime of T3" was committed bv
stealth and In the dark. The crime
'03 is committed in the glare of day, ia
tbe bright lieht of public discussion;
and information. The crime of '73 wr
committed while the people wen
asleep; that of '03 is committed whe
the people are keenly awake, and afte
their voice has been heard In condemns
tlonof the former crime. The crim
of 73 was a secret blow at tbe welfan
of tbe nation; that of '03 is a stab at tb
heart of civilization.
The crime of '73 was .concocted in tbq
secret councils of the English an
American bankers, and consummated
by a few hired traitors. The crime o!
'93 was planned in the same secre
councils yb men grown a hundred-folJ
more powerful, and consummated b
tne bribery ana oau-aozmg oi a mti
jorlty la the greatest legislative bodf
The unconditional repeal of the Sher
man law is of little consequence, wart
It not for the death blow to silver whicl
is Involved in it It means the destruc
tion of silver as a money metal
means tbe establishment of gold money
as a single standard of values. It
means tbe contraction of all values to
that ever-shortening standard. It
means Increase of debt, poverty, misery,
vice, crime, insanity and suicide. It
means loss ef home, lands, property
and employment by the masses, and
the swelling of- few' great fortunes
. But there is one consolation. Uncon
ditional repeat is better than compro
mise. It will hasten the day of final
reckoning. It brings the next great
crises in the history of our country
that much nearer. The moral char
acter of our people will not atand this
terrible strain many years. If the
crises does not come soon, it may come
too late. It may come only to end in
anarchy or an awful despotism. But if
it comes before the native bonasty, and
moral courage of the common people
has been dlssiapated, before their spirit
has been broken, out of the throes of
revolution may rise a grander civiliza
tion. HE 8TATE 00NVEBTI0N.
The Alliance-Independent has no
candidates for nomination at tbe state
convention next Tuesday. We feel, aa
we always have felt that a convention
of men fresh from the fields and shops
can be relied upon to nominate meu
worthy of support. To all tho dele
gates however we feel like offering a
little friendly advice for which wo
Don't be too partisan. Don't get ex
cited. Think firs act afterwards Don't
believe all you hear. Don't bo too
much wedded to your particular candi
date. Don't let any dissension arise in
the convention. Don't belong to any
faction. Select a good man from each
county, a true independent, a rustler,
for a member of the state committed.
Then let the com nit tee choose its oun chair
man and secretary.
To that committee we want to say:
Don't pick on a man for chairman be
cause be wants it, nor because he lives
in Lincoln, nor for any other reacn than
this; Because he is fit and capable to fill
that very responsible position.

delivered a speech against silver on the
closing day of the great debate in the
house in which he said: "The banks
and corporations are the debtors of the
country and the working men are the
creditors. The free coinage of silver
will reduce all debts 45 per cent, and
rob the workingman ef 45 per cent of
the value of his work." Mr. Bryan
asked him how it happend that the
New lork banks denounced Bryan and
Bland for advocating a policy which
would be so great a heneft to the bank
er. Cochran replied that it was be
cause the bankers had learned that
"honesty is the best policv." This was
