According to a statement made in 'the
New York World of the 23ed inst, 92,000
people in New York City alone are
without visible means of sunport during
the wioter, and those figures may be
augmented by forty or fifty thousand
more by next spring. If this is true

If editor Rjsevvater, of the Omaha

as printed from day to day in daily and

elude at once that tho people and es
pecially country newspapers which re
presents the sentiment of the country
are opposed to disreputable methods
uaod by certain kinds of politicians,
trust companies and monopolies in order
to gratify some motive that could not
be attained in a fair and honorable way.

United States senators, Carter of Mon
tana, Shoup of Idaho, Clark and Warren
of Wyoming, Wilson of Washington,
Chandler of New Hampshire, and Hon.
E. O. Wolcot of Colorado, have finally
come to the conclusion, since president
McKinley s first annual message to
congress, on the first of December, en
dorsing and recommending secretary
Gage's prepared bill to congress to re
form of the monetary system, that tho
president is either trying to ride two hors
es at once or, he is only trying to de
ceive them by still further fastening the
single gold standard onto tho people of
the United States, and assist the natio
nal banks to get control of the finance of
the nation. There is no doubt in our
mind but that the Honorable gentlemen
here mentioned have all along been
honest in their support of president Mc
Kinley, because, as they thought he
would b honest, and use every means in
his power to bring about international
bimetallism. But they find out the
president has wholly ignored bi-metal-lisrn,
going so far as to endorse tho res
olutions passed by the Indiannriolis
convention on the 12th of last January,
which he recommended to congress in a
special message last August, and then
the first of this month in his annaul
message to congress when, pretty
near the same principle was embodied
in the form of a bill by the secretary of
the treasury and recommended to con
gress by Mr. McKinley, for their earnest
consideration. Forbearance has ceased
to be a virtue any longer with these
men who have had represented to them
since the election, that the ultimate end
of president McKinley's administration
would bring about international bi

corrects inability to hold urine and scald

overcomes that unpleasant necessity of
being compelled to eret up many times
during the night to urinate. Tiie mild

most distressing cases. If you need a

woman years of age who had for years
suffered from stomach trouble after
being confined to her bed one month this
woman left the hospital and is now to all
