During the last two years of the repub
lican state administration, they succeed
ed in increasing the interest-bearing state
debt $1,275,134. During 18 months demo
pop administration, the latter has suc
ceeded in reducing the interest bearing
state debt $700. .112, which makes a
difference between the two parties in
favor of the demo-pop administation of
$1,975,577. Can the people afford
a return to a system of corruption in
high places? The dear people have had to
make up the above by increased taxation,

Hugh Angus of Ewing sold, a hog to
Van And t Bros..' the other day with a
record that actually made Hugh blush
giving it. He purchased the hog some
three years ago paying $4.00 for it and
since that time it has devoured $10.50
worth of chickens, $60.00 worth of turk
eys and at the present prices at least
$40.00 worth of corn. It was buried in
a snowdrift for Ave days and after that
was knocked in the head with an ax
all of which was to no avail and hence
he was compelled to sell the beast,
It weighed ninety-seven pounds aad
brought $1.50. !
The Democrat at Cherokee, Iowa, says
when the nurse got ready to wash the
new baby born to a Cherokee cou pie on
Friday she found a two cent revenue
stamp pasted on that part of the baby's
anatomy to be used to sit down on when
the youngster gets old enough to whittle
dry goods boxes. It at first startled the
nurse but the jocular doctor soon put in
an appearance and explained the matter,
He said he understood that everything
issued on and after July 1, was required
to have a stamp affixed so he had taken
a few stamps along with him to prevent
any mistake being made.

"Coin" Harvey, says everything looks
bright for the silver forces in the fall
July wheat dropped to the magnificent
price of Oflc in Chicago last Saturday,
McKinleyism and a Dingley deficit of
$100,000,000 in the revenues of the U. S.
treasury coupled with the single gold
standard during the past year make a
bright outlook for the farmer this fall.
Pri nee Bismark Germany's man of iron
as he has often lieen called, passed to the
great beyond July, 30th at his country
seat Fried richsruh. after a prolonged
spell of sickness. It is safe to say that
Prince Bismark was the greatest states
man Germany ever possessed and out
side of Gladstone he surpassed probably
any in Europe.
Nine governors of as many states in
the Union have signified by special
dispatches to the new York Journal how
they felt in regard tojjthe expansion Of
of teritory as a result of the war against
Spain by the United States, 8 out of the
9 are opposed to the permanent occupa
tion of the Phillipine islands. Four of
the 8 are republicans one Populist and
throe Democrats; the 9th one who favors
retaining them is a democrat, governor
Adams of Colorado.
Ben. T, Cable of Illinois who was one
of the principle organizers of the Palmer
Buckner campaign in '96, has returned
to the regular Democrat party and
heartly accepted the Chicago platform.
The Bel moots of New York have also
returned to the fold. They found that
McKinley had no particular use for
them after they bad made it possible for
According to a statement made by
R. H. Jesse, president of the Missouri
state university, more than half of the
wealth of this country is controlled by
less than 1,000 men.
The above is a startling statement,
and if true, which we 'have no reason to
doubt, considering the gentleman, and
position he occupies, what will a few
more years of class legislation bring
forth? Special privileges granted to
the national bankers trust, railroad,".
iron and steel trust, sugar trust, standi'
ard oil trust and a hundred other corpor
ations to numerous to mention, is the
one thing responsible for the state of
affairs referred to by president Jess.
The question will be asked, who is to be
blamed? The Joap.nal answers, the peo
ple. They should send representative to
our state legislatures and to congress
who would not sell out the interests of
the people for a mess of pottage.
The Chicago Inter Ocean, Aug. 1st,
speaking editorially says, Nebraska is
naturally a republican state and pro
bably it would swing back into line this
fall. It goes on to say further that
with bad crops and low prices for every
thing the farmers raised and had to s ell
for four or five years, the farmers vote
Was ready to flock to the demo-pop par
ties but not a word was said about high
way robbery committed by the repub
lican party during its administration of
state affairs in this state for 20 years
prior to its dislodgeraent from office.
The Inter Ocean also, speaks in about
the same strain regarding South Dakota.
But South Dakota like Nebraska will
remain in the hands of the reform forces.
Corruption in high places by the state
officials of the republican party is one of
the causes that gave these states over
into the hands of the reform forces, and
the adoption of the single gold standard
by that same party in '96 will help to
keep those states what they are today.
