I wish to urge upon populists of
Nebraska the necessity of tne formation
of efficient committees. Oigjwize, not
only by townshfpsj ut by "school dis
tricts. Work that is the thing, ana
the only thing, that can bring success
The people will give money to the cam
Dalun If you will only approach them
right. Five cents from every populist
in Nebraska will give us a campaign
fund that will enable your committee to
make success assured. We are going
, to win this fall, if our people will only
do their duty. :
Let every county that has not yet
done so, report a state central committee
man. Let the county central com
in it ion ha thornuffhlv organized. And
above everything get men who are not
afraid to work a nttie ior me cause.
cinA helps nnward and he hates a
sluggard; and what the people's party
' of Nebraska needs Is a few men who
will get out snd rustle. Don't depend
on headquarters to do everything, but
do your own duty. Make a house to
bouse canvass, ana aooveaii, get your
friends out? to electlon.-VJ. A. E. in

alt. Dubois Says tbe Anti-Repea'era Will
Oppose the Passage of the BJ1 by
Availing Themsehree of Every
;will Force a Vote,;
WAsnisoTo.t, nepL v.0. In the sen
ate thU morning, Mr. Voorhees.leader
of the repeal forces.af ter a sensational
deuunclatlon of the New York bank
ers and a defiance to the press that
has been criticising hia actions and
questioning his motives, demanded
that the minority senators name a date
for a final vote; and Mr. Dubois of
Idaho met the demand by a , sitive
declaration that the anti-repe . men
would oppose the passage of .e re
peal bill by availing themse. vea of
every advantage afforded them under
the rulea and usages ot the aenate.
Mr. Voorhees retaliated by giving
notice that he would to morrow move
for longer and more continuous aes
sions. In his speech to-day Mr. Voorhees
reviewed the history of the rulea of
the senate from its creation, showing
that for seventeen years, front 1760,
tbe senate had amongst it rules the
Fro vision for the previous question,
t was tried fully, and iu 1H06, when
Thomas Jefferson was president, it
was deliberately abaudoned and
never claimed or admitted from that
hour to the present
"I am now arraigned," said Mr,
Voorhees, "before public opinion for
not terrain 'n'g this debate. As well
might I be arraigned for not terminat
ing the tide of the ocean of tbe north
west wind. In abandoning the clo
ture rule tbe government or this great
body was placed upon the aense
of propriety, patrotiam, defer
ence to publie sentiment, the
public interests of each senator and of
the body itself, with an assurance In
the minds of those in the senate that
no senator would be found to abuse
the patience of this body or to outrage
the public business or public interest
For eighty-seven years this body has
been a law sufficient unto itself. It
has never tn found wanting in
peace or in r, so that tbe critiuisna
of a certr .as will fall as harmless

ANXIOUS TO MEET THE ISSUE,
The AdmluUtratloo Decided to Bring
He peal Matter to a Teat
Waruisotoh, Sept 20. The admin
istration has at last decided to force
the fighting upon the repeal bill, even
at the risk of defeat Instructions in
accordance therewith have been given
to Mr. Voorhees, who, as chairman of
the finance committee, has the uncon
ditional repeal bill in charge in the
senate. While there was, and still is,
a majority of the senate in favor of
the unconditional repeal bill itself,
Mr. Voorhees hesitates to risk in ef
fort to reach a vote on some other
proposition, such as a continuous ses
sion or a form of clotare. The plan
favored by the administration is to
advance a motion for a continuous
session, if necessary. Even should
this motion be defeated by the aid of
votes of senators who favor uncon
ditional repeal, it is the opinion of the
administration that such a defeat
would be preferable to the present
uncertainty and the indefinite con
tinuance of a debate to which there la
no visible end. If, by forcing this
test the administration should dis
cover that the silver minority
in the senate hold the whip hand,
it would then be time to consider
upon what terms a coraproruiHe might
be reached under which the silver
men would consent to allow a vote.
But. not until affairs assume such u
position as to make it clear that the
administration, is balked will Mr.
Cleveland consent to or consider tbe
suggestion of a compromise. The sil
ver senators do not seem to fear this
policy, because thev claim that public
opinion is turning more and more
against the demonetization of silver
without some binding promise that
the administration will give its ap
proval to other legislation recognizing
silver as money.
