" In the light of past experiences the
time hat fully come when every inde
pendent who has an earnest desire for
the success of his party, should have
the opportunity to be heard in the mat

view of the importance of selecting a
good man for judge of the supreme
asmrt of Nebraska, I take this oppor
tunltv of sayinir that I believe if our
state convention will act wisely and
place la nomination Jobm M. Bagan, of
Hastings, he will be elected by a majo
rity so large toat no one win nave any
desire to contest his seat Mr. Rogan

an independent to be counted on in
every emergency and I believe if nomi
nated that he will be elected and when
elected tb at ho will let no party pre
judice Influence bis decisions, but that
he will decide according to the law and
not according cto the dictates of any

THE HEW Y0EI B1NXEE8 EXPOSED

Violate the Law.
An Exciting Episode.
Washington, Aug. 23. The senate
was churned up into seething foam to
day over the resolution introduced by
Senator Peffer calling on the secretary
of the treasury and comptroller of the
currency to inform tne senate wnetner
the national banks In New York.
Boston and Philadelphia were violating
tho law in paying their depositors
through clearing house certificates, or
cevtlflod checks, or demanding usurious
interest. This resolution, apparently
harmless In Itself, stirred up the friends
of national banks to the very core, and
Senator McPherson of New Jersey, the
goldbug of the goldbugs, in a patriotic
speech insisted thst the resolution
should be referred to the finance com'
mittee, which would inquire into the
matter and take such action as might
be deemed proper.
Senator Gorman followed in the same
line, and, while admitting that national
banlct wire violating the law in this parti
cular, he depreciated, in the present
great emergency, stirring up strife or
further imperiling the situation by at
tacking the banks for resorting to
measures, even though illegal, tney
could not help.
O T1 111 n.nnnulM
that the senate finance committee had
no jurisdiction over the Peffer resolu
tlon. It was a simple matter of Inquiry.
to which the Kansas senator had the
right to receive information thereon.
That much, at least, was due him as a
courtesy to which he was entitled.
While he aiBagreea witn senator rener
on many matters, yet in the present
instance he ooncurrea in tne purport oi
bis inquiry, because it was legitimate
BILL'S BEBUKE OF GORMAN.
The significance ot Mr. Hill's speech
Ilea in the fact that he declared that
while heretofore a listener, he proposed
hereafter to speak and in no uncertain
tones, when be deemed it necessary,
and that he would resent all attempts
to "steer him." Mr. mil's ipeecn
created wide comment, because It in
dicated a rupture with Mr. Gorman,
whose cheeks reddened with auger as
the New York senator proceeded to
speak "between the lines."
senators Manaerson ana Auison
spoke in the same vein, ani Senator
Butler made quite an eloquent defense
of the Peffer resolution and trenched
somewhat upon the silver question.
He declared that he took no stock in
the cry that the present financial dis
tress was occasioned by want of confi
dence. He thought far at the bankt
were concerned, it icat a want ofhonetty.
He stated that the head oi a large
manufacturing establishment in tue
couth, who had a considerable sum on
deposit in a New York bank, tele
graphed to the bank to send him 13,000,
which be needed to pay bis operatives.
Tho bank refused, but proffered certi
fied clearing house checks, but this was
not currency and could not be used.
Finally the bank sent him $5,000 of his
own money ana caargea mm 14 per
cent premium for the currency. This,
Senator cutler said was robuery, and 11
the bunks were violating the law the
senate should know the facts officially.
The debate became a very interesting
and warm one, and as the news of it be
gan to spread through tho capital the
senators who had been in tuelr com
mittee rooms or in the cloak rooms be
gan to take their scats on tbe floor and
the galleries miea up, ana even a num
ber of the representatives came ever
from the house.
Mr. Hoar, republican of Massachu
setts, said that in time of popular dis
tress and panio the comptroller of the
currency should not be compelled to
drive the national banlct up to the strict
letter of the lam. He thought it well to
wait a week or ten days before "poking
Into tbat question too much."
Mr. Kyle, populist of outh Dakota,
argued against the reference, which,
he said, would only mean the burying
the resolution. In the course of bis re
marks he spoko of the secretary of the
treasury sending information "gratui
tously" to senators, referring to Mr.
Carlisle's letter as to the cost of a
change of nil ver coinage.
Mr. Manduruun, republican of Ne
braska, was not prepared to say that
the technical violation oi law by na
tional banks ot Boston, New York and
'hlladelphU was not perfectly justifi
able in tuo present deplorable position
I the country, but ho did not agree
with the senator from MaMtachusetu
that it was well to cover up from tho
knowledge of the pttonle exactly what
courno w being pursued by the bunk.
Mr. Gorman, democrat of Maryland
argued In favor ot the reference of the
resolution. It was utterly linpoaklble
for tho bank to comply liU'rally with
the law. They had Mated U by re
fining to nay checks of depositor and
had Uuu4 clearing houo ci-rtttlcate.

Aandt of a rertiter. Tbat is a calamity
which wo should try to avoid in the
present deplorable condition of the
At the close of the debate the resolu
tion went to the foot of the calendar
without a vote being reached.
There are doubtless few editors who
realize either their opportunities or
their obligations. The newspaper of
today is the most widely circulated me
dium for tho communication of thought
in the civilized world. There are com'
paratively few people ' who can read at
all who do not read the papers to a cer
tain extent. Admitting this fact, we
may form some idea of tbe vast influ
ence exerted by the correspond0 Bnd
editorial writers of our large dallies in
moulding public opinion.
Bat do we find in the papers the
straightforward, honest and forcible
presentation of facts and logically
drawn conclusions therefrom which
should characterize such work? Instead
of this, we usually find facts distorted
and suppressed for the solo purpose of
blinding the reader to the real merits
or demerits of the question being dis
cussed. In nearly ail partisan political
newspapers, at least, we constantly
find evidence of the determination to
make what is known as political capl
tal at any cost. Party success is the
goal in view, and no effort is spared
through honorable or dishonorable
means to reach it. It matters not if
through perversion of the truth oppo
nents are unfairly judged or tho reputa
tion 01 individuals maliciously injured.
That's practical politics, wo are told,
and the would-be brilliant expounder
of political wisdom affects to consider
our simplicity pitiful If we presume to
object on tbe ground cf its bflng dis
honorable. Now, whatever may be the practice
of partisan politicians, or whatever
may be the preponderance of superficial
opinion in favor of resorting to ques
tionable means for the accomplishment
of partisan purposes, no fair-minded
thinking person is ready to admit tnat
pontics is necessarily corrupt. wer
ster defines politics as the soience of
trovernment. and surely srovernmenr,
that which affects every Individual,
should be pure. Tbe fact that there
are people scheming for wealth, high
offices and personal aggrandizement
tnrough political measures is not proof
tbat an honest politician is an impos
sibility, nor that politics is degrading:
but it is a strong argument in favor of
an effort on the part of every hooest
person to Introduce honesty into poll'
tic. No class of people has the advan
tatfes for doing this that are possessed
by the editors of the large dailies, and
it Is therefore Incumbent upon them as
those who are largely responsible for
the morals of tbe nation, and for -the
policy of the government, that they
divest themselves of all prejudices and
argue questions aad issues with dignity
and fairness. Jcstitia,
A Pointed Protest.
At the meeting of the republican state
central committee at the Hotel Lincoln,
Wednesdsy evening, Lincoln Typo
graphical Union presented a protest
against Tbe State Journal being recog
nized as the organ of the party on the
groun4 that its course in the past, and
especially since Christmas, 1892, has
been inimical to organized labor. The
protest was received and roferred to the
executive committee with instructions to
act. It is quite a, lengthy document and
recites the wrongs that hare been heaped
upon the members of tho Typographical
Union when, la tbe employ of that paper
and the slurs and misrepresentations of
the working people of all grades and con
ditions, and informs tho central commit
tee that this course on the part of The
Journal has alienated thousands of work
ingmen throughout the state from the
party, and sounds a warning that unless
something is done, sod done quickly, the
alienation will become a permanent do
Hertlon. Tne matter Is now squarely
before the republican party of the state,
and they are asked to choooe between
getting back the votes of the thousands
of worklngmen who huve left the party
on account of The Journal's p . hey and
tho support of that paper. The com
mittee cannot make Its choice too
quickly for the good of the party. It
will take the bardctt kind of work and
a Vt?ry liberal policy toward the working
men to get back the defected oneg. On
the other hand, we are Informed that the
trades unions are already mapping out a
plan of campaiicn and are provided with
ample funds to carry It through.
Tho republlcm lo tor tnnt not im
agine that the Typographical Union alone
U affected. That union U backed by
every legitimate labor organization In
the state under whutevor name it may
be fouud, and they la turn by their na
tional and international bodies. It Is un
derstood that tbe trades unions will not
wait for tho tardy opening of the cam

FIBi AND LIOBTHINO,
We hope to have a good meeting
some evening during the fair prob
ably Wednesday evening, and will
probably organise a fire company.
Some have objected to our articles
because we did not include school
houses, in answer to which we will say
that state law prevents. See see. 8,
chap. 33, session laws of 181)1.
We will have headquarter in the
alliance building on the fair grounds
during the fair. Call and see us.

Kuormona Cost of Railroad Trans
portation Under Corporate
Editor Alliance Independdnt:
I would r specif ully call the attention
of the citizens of Nebraska to a state
ment mado by John M. Thurston, U. P.
railroad attorney, In his opening speech
of the last campaign, a:cd retailed by ,
republicans and democrat generally: .
"It is a good thing to have the people
divided in two nearly tqual parties,
V a, the one may w atch the other."
Every truo statotman, every known
teacher and writer on popular govern
ment has confirmed the teaching of
our fathers, "Uuited we stand, divided
weiaii." unaerthls condition that so
pleases this railroad lawyer and his fol- .
lowers, stock and boud holders, specu
lators and other idlers haro trrown rich
and arrogant, while the farmers and
other tollers have necfisarily grown
poor and dependent, borne down by the
greatest debt ever placed upon tae peo
ple of any nat on. Tho railroad cor
poration debts alono amounted, on D
cembor 31, 1892, to tho enormous sum '
ot $11,088,933,006. and thU and ail
other quasi-public corporation debts,
are just as rauoh a public debt as is the
national debt; and ranat bn paUl, if
ever it is paid, as all public debt has. to
be rld, by the producers.
During the year 1S92 there was paid
to railroed corporations for traffic alone
1,1105,272,023. The net earnings, the
earnings after paying all legitimate,
and ninny illegitimate, expense was
i:L'i8,638,iO. Tha available revenuo-or
profits for 18W was tl73,2M,C5, or
neatly kalf a billion of dollars in one
year; and of profits and useless expense
a treat deal more than halt a billion of
During tne last eight years the "avail
able revenue" has amounted to 3,3uti
0i4,5US, an Income In eight years that
would have paid off the national debt
at the rloe of the war and loft a billion
of dollars for spending,, money; that
would, with the donation that have
bee made, havo built and equipped
