Ttio Chicago Record, one
of the greatest metropolitan
laltesof the United States
La finally been force to ad
mit that Hon. John P, Ault
Keld is a friend to the labor
ing class and that he holds a
Farm place in the faeart of
tihe working man. It also
admits frankly that the ex
governor, if ho had the time
to devote to it, he would do
lots toward purging his par
ty from the old corruption
barnacles also, in purifying
politics in Chicago.
The republicaa party has,
for the past four years and
the Record represents . that
party called Mr. Aultgeld a
fowling anarchist. But as
time passes the eyes of eoms
hit most devoted enemies are
gradually being opened un
der tho benign influence of
Huch men as Henry George
and John P. Aultgeld.
Where one man's wages are
raised since the nesv tariff law
went into effect, ten others
have been reduced. The fact
of the matter is, the jrebub

and cold all at the samejtime.
The mother of present
McKinley, died at her ome
in Columbus, Oh., Sunday
evening aear midnight. The
president has been by her
fcedside almost continuously

two weeks ago. It would

Under demo-pop rule, aB
the republicans term it, the
state of Nebraska is no doubt
in the best condition of any
state in the Union, notwith
standing the republican lead
ers stougutly maintained for
the past three years that if
the reform forces succeeded
in getting hold of the state
government they woud ruin
the credit of the state and
that capital would leave the
state. But they begin to re
alize the falcity of their state
ments. Twent y-eight thousand cot
ton operatives in the city of
Fall River, Mass., alone have
had their wages cut down 10
per cent. Their weekly wages
aggreate 180,000. All this
comes four months after the
operation of the Dingley tar
iff bill. But Mr. Dingley
'laims it is all on account of
over production and yet,' he,
and also his party said that
high protection would utimu

His said by the New York
pipers that Judge Park, wh q
y dostl'l t'J the supreme
bench in that state at the re
cent election has been elated
as the democrat candidate for
president against W. J. Bryan
in 1900 by the democracy of
the above state. But he is
too much of a Hill and Tam
many man, which means the
money power and trusts shall
rule. Mr. Bryan will be the
standard bearer of the party
in 1900 and he will in our op
inion be elected.
History lauds George Washington to
the sky as the father of our eountry.
Has any body stopped to Ihiuk that he
was acrauesd in those (lays by the rich of
this country as being it traitor to the
mother country; a disturber of the peace
and dignity of the coloiiiek? which belong
ed to England? All because the cranks
and anarchist, as they would be call
ed now-a-days, would not submit to a
monarchial from of gove rniuent and let
the money power dominate the country.
The same conditions obtain tolay only
in a different form. Any body who has
an eye to the future can readily see
that all the small business institutions
of the United States are being absorbed
by trusts and corporations. If the next
ten years are as productive of trusts and
corporations as it has been in the past
ten years just coming to a close, what
will be tlie pros(ct of the laboring
class and poor people, who constitute
at least nine tenths of the papulation of
the United States.
Hardly a day passes but that soma new
trust is formed in order Ao cootrol some
particular industry which flnaly results
in killing out all the smaller concerns en
gaged in that business wjiirhu proposes
to cor t ol. What is the result, it is this,
those who were engaged in the small
concerns before they were swallowed up
by a trust company are now obliged to
seek new fields of labor and crowd out
others who may be proltably engaged
and so it goes. Our merchaU who are
doing a fair business now, will in the next
ton years be froze out and branch bouses
from our large cities will be doing the
liuices. . Tnen if thaw people do any
kicking they will be called cranks and
anarchists. Watch tb signes of the
The sun of prosperity is now shining
with resplendent effultrence upon that no
ble and heroic sovereign and freeman
the American working man! Thus, since
the election of McKinley and the passage
of his divine taxation law, "prices have
increased while wages are going down
and strikes are everywhere." Thus:
Shoes increase,.. 25
Rubber boots, increase 10
Bread, increase 15
Clothinp, increase 20
Oatmeal, increase 10
Beef, increase.... 30
Pork, increase.. 10
Mutton, increase 25
Wages, decrease ..10
Is Gov. Pingree an anarchist? Read
what, he says about municipal owner
ship of its franchises and monopolies.
He ought to be in the reform parties.
Just think of it, this time, a sheep in
"My experience has brought my mind
to this conclusion; That the streets of a
city belong to the people and that no
mayor or common council has a right
to barter them away. They belong to
the living and not to the dead. The
remedy against many of these evils is
municipal ownership and (he entire abo
lition of monopolies must exist which
depend upon public favor, their absolute
control by and dependence upon the peo
ple." Hon. W. J. Bryan, arrived in the city
of Mexico, Max., Dec. 14th.

The most humane act to be performed
during the 55th congress, will be if pos

the poor national banks to get control
of currency system of the nation, and
further assist Spain to pacify the island

LINCOLN, Neb Dec 15, 1897
Special correspondence: The hunt for
prosperity, winch according to the bood
ler's press resulted in. getting my head
broken, was resumed in all earnestness,
but in a different direction. Now I
bring the testimony of many witnesses,
most of them gold standard republicans,
and submit the case to the considerate
judgement of the good citizens of this
state. Nebraska is in the best condition
of any state in the Union. If the fol
lowing witnesses truthfully describe the
outlook here, what must the extent of
the misery be whicli the money power
has brought upon the mass or the peo
ple in this once prosperous and happy
nation? Here is what the witnesses in
this case have to say.
