The JoruNAL utawU fairly
ind squarely on the Chicago
platform, but will not hesitate
to 8ii)4ort and work for the
election of candidates for the
various offices to be voted for
thin fall no matter, whether
they are Democrats, 1'opulid
or free silver Republicans, if
endorsed by all the reform par
ties, conditional, however, that
they advocate bimetallism the
income tax law, opposition to
national banks of issue, are
opposed to the retirement of the
greenbacks and treasury notes,
Savor government control of
railroads, telegraph and tele
phone lines and the establish

posed to the issueing of nation
al londu in time of peace.
And lo, France ami F.nclnnd are now
looking askance at each other. Poor
little France would in such an emergenc y
be swallowed up by one of the mistress
of tbe sea great guns.
Senator Vfotlcot who was inclined
to oppose the bond clause in the war,

The gentlemen in the U. 8. senate,
wbo represent the mulli- nillionaine of
thin country and E'iropo voted to a man
again it an income tax, which if it could
become a law of our land would compel
tbe rich to pay their just share of the
running expenses of the country. Tbe
Mme men voted in the same way on nil
-Other propositions that were presented
which would benefit the wealth ro
ducing clnss of the United Htates in the
future. Little doubt now but that half
a billion dollars in bonds will be issued
in the interest of the money sharks be
fore this congress adjorns.
In the 1806 presidential campaign, the
republicans notified the reform forties
that you could not legislate money into
man's pocket but just now that name
trty are making the effort of their lives
in congress to legislate into the pockets
of tbe national banks and bond-holders of
this country about $00,000,000. If an
income tax should be attemped to be in
corporated iota law and placed on the
statute books of the nation which would
force the rich to par their just share of
the running expenses of the nation, then
a great bowl goes up and tbe supreme
court cornea to the relief of the money
sharks and declares such a law to be un
constutional. A few partisan politicans such as
coagraMmao Grosvenor and Mark llanna
of Ohio are making the statement that
this war with Spain was a Republicaa
war. And now, with laud proclaim the
republicaa papers are shoutiag that com
modore Dewey is a republican. As to
Commodore Dewey, ft matters not to
tbe loyal people of the nation what his
politics or religion is, it is enough to
know that he has done bin duty and that
right welL Abeyt the onlv thing repub
lican about the. war so far is the five
hundred million-dollar bond-deal that
speaker Reed, Ding ley and Grosvenor
of the lower house, and Mark Hnnna,
Mat Quay and a half dorzen Ilannacruis
la th senate assisted by the national
banks sod mulWrnilJionaire of the
(country. The - republican party are
welcome to all to praise in thst lino.

j A joint resolution providing for
! electing U. R Senators by popular vote
of t)m people, passed the honse on tbe
11th inst by a vote of 11 to 1L
England greatest statesman, lit.
Hon. William E. Cladst one in ulowly
patwin-r away at Ilaywarden, hiscountry
wat in Englanj;. His demise is expected
at any moment by the attending physici
ans. The war strategy loardat Washington,
have come to the conclusion tltat our
naval ollicers in charge of our battleships
know moro about conducting a. naval
war-fare than they do. Hence the of
ficers, w-ho nre to do tbe actual lighting
have ltn told to go ahead and use their
own judgement in conducting the cam
paign. If tho reading of the great daily pap
ers of the country are any indication
there is more politics and bonds mixed
up in the war with Spain than patriotism
unless it is among the high privates who
will have the lighting to do. Senator
Chandler of New llamphire has observ
ed already tlut is about the size of the
Tho Jouk.naL believes as much credit
and praise should be accorded tbe brave
men who composed the crew and raaned
the great gun on th U. S. battleships
in the great naval engagement against
the Spanish in Manila harbor as Commo
dore Dewy. Great praise and honor
is lavi.shad upen CommodoreDewy by all
tlie great metropolitan papers with
comparatively little praise for his brave
A lengthy editorial appeared in the
World-Herald of llav 13th, relative to
the inlistment asa high private in the
Nulnraska volnnlcers of John O. Maher
of Chadron who has been official reporter
for Judgd Westover of this lOth judicial
dictrii't three or four years. The World
HeraM certainly pays a high compli
ment ti Col. Maher for the patriotic
spirit ho hits tJiown by sacrifUing a f3,
000 n-year position which shows, he had
no selfish motive in view, or he would
have sought for something better in the
volunteer service, having tho pull with
the administration that he did.
It is a nolicable fact that sons of
congresKnien and governors of the differ
ent states of the union have and are
succeeding in getting most of the choice
places in the volunteer army also, at the
war and navy departments at Wasing
ton. In a time of war with a foreign
power like the present one, favoratisni
and politics should have no part in mak
ing up the personnal of army officials.
There nre thousands of men who have
enlisted or will enlist to battle foK their'
country i a time of need who are no
doubt just as competent in every way as
the sons of men who have a pull down at
the national cupitol.
Senator Allison of Iowa, estimates
tliat the war revenue bill as it came
from the finance committee In tho unncr
bouse will produce 51 milliors more rev-
enue than the bill which originated in
the house. So that with the issuing of
HO million of greenback and treasury
notes and the coinage of the 43 million
of silver bullion now in tho U. S. treas
ury, known as signorage or the profit
occruemg to the government from coi n
ing of the silver at the mints over the
cost of purchase added, will prsduce in
round numbers the enormous sum of 341
millions annual) for currying on the war
against Spain. But of course the senate
finance committee eliminated, the bond
clause, yet it may be re-considered when
it comes up in committee of the whole.
The lower house of congress has dis
played a great deal of common sense by
passing the joint resolution in favor of
the election of U. S. senators by direct
vote of the people. If they will go a
little farther and pass a resolution a
mending the constitution of the United
State so that the president and vie presi
dent can be elected by direct vote of
the people that part of congress will en
dear itself to the people in a way that
will not soon be forgotten.
Will the dignified senate be as swift
to listen to the demands of the country
on this particular question as tbe lower
house? It is to be hoptd it will. Every
voter in tbe United States is a sovereign
and ought to have a direct voice in the
election of its representatives in congress
and then, it would be more democratic
to elect by popular vote, besides there
would be less chance for such men as
Calvin H. B rice and Krk Hanna being
able to buy themselves into office.
When tltat time comes, if it ever doss
brains, honesty and integrity will be
more apt to go to congress to represent
tbe interests of our people, than some
party boss with no other motive la view
but the interests of corporation, trusts
