prime minister of Siin was assassinated
near Madrid on the Hth inst. l.y an an

The following is taken from the Daily
World-Herald whitrh will explain itself.
It does not spply to any particular party
and it should he carefully read by every
voter in the county, without regard to
It is well for a political party to im
press upon the minds of those who owe
allegiance to it tliat traitors must look
to those who prollt by their treachery
for their reward. And the man who
hobnolw with the oposition and assists
it in ringing in cold decks must not object
if he is looked upon with suspicion.
Political treachery can never become io
common as to lo accepted with compos
ure and overlooked as a mere incident
in political life.
Editorally, our rupublican friend,
editor of the NorthurxUrn I'ns, on the
corner of Hroiul t lth street, doubtless
made the elfurt of his life in taking us to
task for publishing an article entitled
"Under The liingley Mill", clipped from
the New York Herald, showini: how tlie
new tariff act had discriminated against !
the consumer, while it grants upeowl
privelages to trusts, toaibioe and mo
nopolies. la regard to the tern "free traoV as
applied to ua, by w hich tlie aepirioir edit
or of the PrrM wtkhes to (Wxiguate us,
is not true iu auy sewM of the term.
Our theory is now, and always has been
a tariff lor revenue, adequate to pay the
ruuuiug exnMM of the government
economically administered awl that ie
fcoud wltolsoiiwductriue advocated by the
icf routed lfeoiocratic party. We are
hot one of those who ill lay quietly
w hile the Hkiouiug process is going on.
We are iu favor of a protection that pro
tects, uot protecliuu that taLn from
the farmer, laborer, artiiau and mehcan-
ics to be turned over to the money pow
r. For instance, like Senator Cnnnou
of Utah, we believe au export duty is
the only protection that would be of
upecial benefit to those mentioned and
actually iu need of it.
Our republican brother intimates in
his arraignment of the editor of the
Joiknai. that tlw Diogley tarilf bill had
raided the price of the commodities and,
admitting tacitly, we would be obliged
to iay more for what we lad to buy,
and at tlie same time he seeks to convey
to his readers that every thing the
farmers have to sell is much higher as a
result of the new tarilf law ard tliat
prosperity is right here. It is true that
wheat, com, cattle, hogs aud sheep are
higher but, it is not true, the Dingley
law was the cause of the raise in the
products mentioned above. Of course
the Dingley law applies to imports, and
so did the Wilson bill for that matter;
how it can increase the price of export
goods or products is duyond our compre
If our friend across tlie way desires to
be fair, why not explain why one of the
largest cotton factory's in the east has
abut down throwing eight thousand
hands out of employment. Not a word
has been Raid about the greatest coal
tdrike iu the history of our country
by our brother editor whether that is
prosperity, or its advance agent.
Tlie McKinley law was a complete fail
ure and it was tlie mean that paved the
way for ex-president Cleveland to issue
28'j,0OO,O0O in bonds for the benefit of
I'ierpoint Morgan, August Belmoat,
Wall Street and himself included with,
no body knows how many others, to line
their pockets. If the McKinley law
done all that and it was not a result of
the Wilnotj bill, because an exausted
treasury wan inherited from a republi
can administration when they took the
reign of government what will bathe
flul outcome with the Dingley law in
force K, brother Davis toe tariff iasue
ie only taleutated to divert tlte atten
tion of the maaeee of the people from
the true cause, the single gold standard
which the republican party in commited
to. If My republican denies the state
ment made in this paragraph, read presi
dent McKinley's meage to Congress
relative to the appointment of a curren-
y commission, to report ami formu
late a plan similar to the Indianapolis
gold standard idea.
A few words more and that is this:
we Krant to every body the name rights
nnd privileges we enjoy free press Ac
provided always, that they are honest in
their convictions, and we assume that
you are. We hail made up our mind
not to quarrel with our neighbors or en
ter into a public contoversy but brother
Itevis would not have it that way hence,

LINCOLN, Neb., Aug. l.Tlie three
silver conventions of the Populists,
Democratsand Republicans will be held in
this city f-'epteniber 1- All arrangements
have been completed to make the occas
ion a great jollification for silver force.
The three bodies will act separately, but
in conjunction, and will nominate the
same candidates. After the meeting a
mass convention will 1 held.
Letters from several prominent bi
ruetallists have been received by the
committee saying the writers will be
present Hon. W. J. Bryan, Senator
Henry M. Teller and Hon. C. A. Towns
will in turn address the three conven
tions. The plans have been riiude more
elaborated in order to counteract the
influence of the reports that have been
circulated recently concerning the alleg
ed caucus of Bryan's friends in Nebraska
to force hiiu to quit talking silver for a
The meeting will also le the occasion
of a national address to lie issued by
uryan to the advocates of the silver
cause throughout the world. It will
toUch upon U,e Prog of t U!
oeing niaue inrougnoui tlie country, and
the evidence that Mr. Bryan las himself
received during the past nix months on
the lecture ptatforn about tbi renewed
interest in silver.
The address will reiterate tliat it is the
only living jssue, and that all factions
are today tending in that direction for
the campaign of 1900.
Mr. Bryan's friends w ill also at the
same time formally deny that they have
contemplated asking him to withdraw,
even temporarily, from the platform,
and will deny that they have said silver
was a dead issue. Tlie Populists- conven
tion w ill be composed of 2,700 delegates,
the Democrats the same number, and
the Silver Republican convention 1,000,
so that the meeting will be a representa
tive one, as far as the silver forces are
concerned in Nebraska, and its actions
may be accepted an the true sentiment
of the silver advocated in Bryan's
