Four years ago they gave this
state to the Democrats and this year
it remains to be seen whither their
judgment will he reversed. The
question urises is it a reform work
they have entered into? Are they
actuated by a desire to make purer
politics? Are they a party in deed
or only in name? Are the princi
ples and avowed policy of the Dem
ocratic party lire policy by which
they desire this great Hepublic to be
ruled by? Do they actually believe
that Democracy from a political
stand point is right? If they do why
do they not go over to that party
in name us well as in works. The
Democrats have no use for them only
us they can get their votes. Four
years ago they turned Watson to the
wall and now they say to Towne,
you can’t slide on our cellar door.
No, populists you can’t have the
crumbs that fall from our political
table, all we expect of you is to sit on
the fence and see us go by, of course
you are expected to smile now and
then, we will tickle your under jaw
with a little Buffalo grass as we pass
to induce the sensation but don’t ask
for pap, there is not enough to go
round. We have convinced you that
the Republicans are a bad lot and
you always knew that we were, you
never would cousent to join our par
ly so just call yourself by what name
you like just so we get the benefit of
your vote. Are those interogations
not correctly put, and if they are, are
they all the consideration a party
should get for turning over 8 elect
oral votes to a party they know
has always been wrong. Every
body should be ready to ftirthei
reform, and the doctrine of the
Middle of the Road fellows has
but few objections, but a reform
bide with a Democratic carcus
under it should be detested unless
you believe that Democracy is re

Omaha, .Tnly i'.’, —It is definitely
settled thut Theodore Roosevelt will
pay Nebraska a visit during the
pending campaign. This statement
is made on the authority of Chair
man Lindsay of the state central com
mittee, who says that Governor Roose
velt will devote at least a week to the
campaign in Nebraska. It will bo a
great treat to the people of Nebraska
to see, not only the next vice president
of the United States, but one of the
foremost scholars and statesmen of the
nation—a man of high distiiiguishineut
in civil and military life. The exact
time Governor Roosevelt will be here
has not, as yet, been determined.
The list of speakers for the campaign
will contain among others th names of
many noted statesmen and orators, the
object being to so present the evidence
that the verdict rendered in the high
court of pulilit opinion shall be based on
an intelligent understanding. It never
has been, and is not now, the desire of
the Republican party to acquire public
stewardship by false pretenses. More
than once the Republican party has re
sisted supposedly popular vagaries in
the face of a popular demand for their
adoption, because it was confident that
it was right and that the vagaries were
not alone wrong, but fraught with
great public danger.
It is the party that struck the chains
of slavery from the black man when
more than half of the nation opposed it.
It is the party that disciplined a dis
obedient and rebellious confederacy and
established forever the unity of the re
public while all the world looked ou in
It is the party that for 40 years lias
maintained an industrial policy which
distinguishes American labor from that
of all the rest of the world, mid which
has elevated it to a standard unequaled
in the history of civilized nations. For
40 years the Republican party has stood
guard at the doorway of labor, repuls
ing again and again the attacks of
Democratic free trade. Defeated in
their repeated efforts to bring American
labor to a level with the pauper labor
of Europe, the fusioulsts have
adopted a new scheme aud that is to
lure labor away from its safe moorings
through alluring promises contingent
upon a change in the monetary system.
It isn't free trade now, though the
fusiouists Hre just us much for free
trade now as they ever were, it is free
silver. One is fraught with as much
distress to the American people as the
other. Neither can be adopted with
out being attended by inconceivable
disaster. The Republican party believes
in a free people, free homes and free
government—it does not believe in free
trade or free silver.
The Republican party believes m ex
pausiou. It believes in extending the
benefit* of free citizenship and self
government to every possible clime. It
believes in progress in commercial and
territorial expansion, to the end that all
may bo benefited und the world in gen
eral brought under the benign influence
of Christianity and intelligence.
The history of the United States is a
history of expansion—expansion in ter
ritory, as well as in trade, art, science,
and literature. Expansion upon any
pretext was until recently opposed by
the fusionists. They charged that tho
Republicans were imperialistic when
they declared in favor of territorial ex
pansion. They have, in a degree, since
changed their orthodoxy. The Demo
cratic national convention at Kansas
City which bundled the expansion
question with such passive delicacy was
held in territory acquired by expansion.
The site of Kansas City is part of the
Louisiana purchase. Nebraska, tho
home of W. J. Bryan, the Democratic
candidate for president, was Spanish
territory when Jefferson was made
president. Nearly 800 members of the
Kansas City convention came from ter
ritory acquired through expansion.
More than 40 of the delegates came from
territory annexed in consequence of the
war with Mexico. Minnesota, Mon
tana, Missouri, Nebraska. Arkansas,
Iowa, Kansas, Isiuuiaua. Nor lb and
South Dakota, Oklahoma, Wyoming,
and part of Colorado, had Inn votes in
the convention, and expansion re

Ultd< r the sov- i igutv . i Spain and fur
all «>t' that time had felt and • xpcrienc’-d
all the iniquities t f monarchical rule.
When the hand of President MoKiub y
was raised aguins- Spanish atr itu - in
Cuba and tho Philippines, it was not
for the purpose of acquiring new p< >s
sessions in the Ortent. Naval an 1 mili
tary strategy alone directed movement
toward tho Philippines, and thoso
waters were invaded with no other
object in view than tho dcstrwrtiun or
capture of tlie Spanish squadron. fcot
until tho treaty of Pans was entered
into did tho United States undertake to
ex*rcis( control over tho Philippines.
This treaty passed sovereignty o#-r
these islands trout Spain to the United
States, and it is a forcible reminder to
Bryan and those fusionists who nro
finding fault with the McKinley ad
ministration for attempting to restore
law and order in the Philippines, that
this very obligation, this very duty, is
the result of Senator Allen's vote and
the personal efforts of W. J Bryan to
have tlie treaty ratified Without
Senator Allen’s vote and without tho
personal efforts of W. J. Bryan the
treaty could not and would not have
been ratified, and the Philippine isl
ands would not liavo passed to ^he
sovereignty of tho United States.
After being largely responsible for the
acquisition of the Philippines, Bryan
and the fusionists huvo adopted a plat -
form of repudiation and they hold up
thoir hands in abject horror at the
spectacle of an honest, commendable
and patriotic effort on th* part of the
president to suppress doiiMstio lawless
ness and rapine in the islands. Like
the cupper-heads of 18(il they are cas
tigating the McKinley administration
for exacting obedience to the well es
tablished rules and ethics of popular
government and at tho same time are
encouraging insurrection by seditious
utterances secreted in expressions of
sympathy for a people hearing arms
against tho United States.
It is a prerequisite to popular govern
ment that the governing power shall it
self bo capable of self government. So
soon as the Filipinos shall demonstrate
their ability to maintain a government
analogous to a republic just so soon will
the Republican party through its au
thori/. d representatives encourage that
til ( onmuTflal Iniportttuue.
The importance of the United States
retaining the Philippines, from a com
mercial standpoint, is not to bo dis
counted. It is an important link in tha
policy of commercial expansion. Par
ticularly is this true when considered
in connection with American trade* in
China. It is only recently, and it is
due to the wise statesmanship of Mc
Kinley, that American products have
found their way to China in any mater
ial quantity. The “open door” policy
recently promulgated opens up to the
farmers and producers of the United
States a market, the consuming capa
city of which challenges computation.
China has au urea of more than one
twelfth of th*' globe and a population
variously estimated at between :»00,0<X>,
000 and 450,000.000. Her export and
import trade reaches enormous propor
tions and it will require time aud en
ergy alone for the United States to de
velop an enormous trade in that
country aud with those people. It is a
mild assertion to state that China alone
can consume every bushel of surplus
farm products in the United States.
The farmers of Ni braska, us well as the
farmer* of other agricultural states,
should, therefore, in considering the
policy of this government toward the
Philippines consider the importance of
a commercial footing in China, an es
sential of which is control of the islands.
This is not imperialism, but commer
cialism; is not militarism, but far-reach
ing, far-seeing, intrinsic statesman
