Russia has applied to the United
States for a loan of $150,000,000.
Fact brother Brown, and wu have it,
V*- we sold goods to Europe and got it
under a gold standard.
Less than 20,000 troops have ac
complished that which pessimist?
said would require 100,000 to do in
China. The United States. (Jrent
Britain, Russia aud Japan, follow
ing the determination of President
McKinley to advance on l’ekin with
a small force if a large one was not
at hand, have succeeded in carrying
out our presidents ideas and the le
gationers are rescued. This proves
the old Yankee theory, that the wav
_ _ to do a thing is to do it, to be cor
^ rcct.
It makes all the difference in the
world wither bankers are in the pop
party or not. Now wo know a man
who served two terms as a pop coun
ly treasurer uud made enough
money to buy an interest in a bank
.mil build a brick residence and “He’s
all right." He is a pop. Then there
was A. T. Nichols, he was a pop
and that party kept $5,000 in his
bank until they lost it,although they
knew he was going to the wall, but
then “lie was all right." Say boys
that guff is too thin people are laugh
ing at you.
Ves brother, the United States got
her money to lend principally from
her export trade during the past 4
years and the in tin x of gold conse
quent upon her open industries, and
hlessyour gizzard the goverumeut
did not loan this money it was priv
ate parties who could not receive an v
ducats realized from your “stamp
act.” So you immagine our great
beneficiary orders are about to suc
cumb to this “stamp act." Well
you are wise beyond your generation
and people, who are posted, will rise
up and call you looney some day if
you don't look u leedle oud. ('lease
tell us how those orders are effected
v out side of a ‘Jcent stamp for checks
and drafts.
What has the fusiooiala given us
that was worth the powder since
they have been running things in
Nebraska that indicates a reason for
ugaiu electing them. Is our tax any
lower since they have been masters.'
Has our state been ruu ou a more
economical basis? if so for all that
is right sh< w us. Has peace, liar
uiony mid good government been oil
. ime.i? If so we again desire to
be shown, for a contiuuai scramble
for place, charges ami recbaige* have
been made by one atate oltner
against another. Due sx»s hi* c >1

Poynter’s Term Will Close With
a Deficiency of at Le^st
Facts and Figures Taken From the
Official Records Which Will Ad
mil of No Dispute.
Important Statistic* H«*urhi£ on tin*
Wealth and Il«**ou of
the ft'artu.
Om:ilin, A tig. 27. It Is a low esti
mate to say tiiat at the dose of tlie
llscal year the state of Nebraska will
l»e facing a deficit in llie funds for tin1
maintenance of tlie various state In
stitutions <>f not less than $100,000. If
anything, tlie amount will lie larger.
Neither is tills mere conjecture. Al
ready the records in the auditor's of
fice at Lincoln reveal a large short
age, aud. assuming that there will lie
no increase in the rat* of expenditews,
tlie deduction lexis op to theae fignroa.
At beat the shortage cannot fall below
the ■oo.iioii mark.
This Is certainly n bad showing for
the I’oyuter administration, consider
ing tlie fact that the last legislature
appropriated for general purposes
more than $2,0*10,000.
More than $.“>00,000 was appropriated
for salaries and wages alone and yet,
generally speaking, there will lie a
large shortage in these funds.
The records in tlie auditor's office at
tliis very time, witli six months’ ex
penses unprovided for, show a short
age in tiie funds appropriated for the
Normal School at l*cru, tlie Institute
for the Blind at Nebraska City, the
Fish Hatchery at South Bend, the
Soldiers’ and Sailors' Home at Mil
ford, the Soldiers’ and Sailors' Home
at Grand Island, the Institute for Fee
ble Minded Youth at Beatrice, the
Asylum for the Insane at Norfolk, the
•idustrial School at Kcui'uey, the Asy
ium for the Insane at Lincoln—In
short, they show n sfagrtuga In the
funds of wvery stab* institution.
These facts are taken from flio otti
vial records and they cannot la* »k*
ccsafully refuted. The records also
show an utter disregard for law In
tin* matter of diverting funds. While
the law contemplates that specific ap
propriations shall be used only to meet
obligations against such funds, the
practice in general is to use many
specific funds as general funds. The
custom is, where a fund is exhausted,
to draw on some other fund specific
ally appropriated for other purpose's,
an act clearly in violation of law.
That the present fusion administra
tion lias been an expensive luxury to
tile people of Nebraska can no longer
be denied It Is ii fact, which tin* of
ficinl figures will substantiate, that at
flic end of Governor I’oynter’s present
term tlie state of Nebraska will have
paid out more money and Incurrt .
more indebtedness in the way of def
icits and unpaid bills for the main
tenance of the public institutions than
for any other two years since the
state was admitted to the Union.
Neither is there any excuse for this
large deficiency. The last legislature
was liberal in its appropriations, and.
while it did not appropriate the large
amount demanded by the heads of the
various state Institutions, for the sim
ple reason that it would have Imposed
a hardship on tax payers, it appropri
ated an amount which, had the insti
tutions been honestly and econom
ically managed, would have been
abundantly sufficient.
Fallacious Prophecy.
Rack in the olden times, when the
people were less tolerant and the lamp
of reason and intelligence shone leas
brightly than today, false prophets
were frequently exiled and false
prophecies were put under a ban.
Not so today. The spectacle of to
day Is that of a fulse prophet running
for president on the Democratic ticket
with his false prophecies recast into a
platform of principles.
Of all the prophets, Bryan has been
the most prolific and st the same
time bus made more and greater
mistakes, in the campaign of 1 Mild he
said that a Republican victory would
bring untold distress and suffering,
is there one man It.- Nebraska who be
lieves it todayV <>n the contrary. Isn't
It tile universal belief, and Is it not an
established fact, that the country is
more prosperous in general than for
i many years?
Itryan said Republican victory meant
Industrial slavery. Where is it?
Itryan said Republican victory
meant low prices fur farm products.
1 lias tlint collie true is there a farmer
| In Nebraska today who believe* it ?
Bryan said a gold standard would
Iiii|hoerisli the masses and decrease
the purchasing capacity of labor ami
farm products lias this come trio
Is tlisre a farmer whe will toy that he
Is foiling less for his cattle, hogs,
corn, w h«st, oats, butter wool or any
other product of the farm tlmi he re
i ini four years ago? ts tharo s la
borer who will say that he Is getting
h-» * pay for his work Ilian he received
four years ago?
Itryan s philosophy wa* fulhn hot*
then and It is )iui as fallacious now
I lie re i* no more logic or truth in i
philosophv of today than there w i
tour years ago It no* without foin»
d'ltiou iu fai t then and it m w ithont«a tu fa<i now It was in
|. ad.-d to frtgtu, u the i*. .ph then and
i ft Is Intended to frighten the people ;
| how.
Mvrryliody admits that he was1
wrong in 180tt, not in one prophecy, j
not iu one instance, hut In all. What '
right, what excuse has any one to of- j
for for pretending to believe In his j
vagaries today? Bryan has himself |
deserted his philosophy of 1S;»6 lie
has taken another tack, not of his own !
volition, but his philosophy of lH‘»d j
1 lias lieen shattered by tlie logic of !
events and there is nothing left of |
them but the reverberating echoes of
tlie calamity forebodings of tin* "boy
orator," so lie has been forced to seek
shelter behind a new orthodoxy. Ho
j has taken cover behind "militarism"
and "imperialism," something new to!
tlie voters and something therefore
with which ihoy may lie more easily
duped. If elected, his peculiar brand
of "militarism" when analyzed would
he found to he that hydra-headed
monster, free trade; and his "impe
rialism,” free silver, Bryan and his
party may rant about "militarism"
and "imperialism," hut behind it all.
ami the hidden motive, is to get Into
position to promote the cause of free
trade and free silver. No one knows
better than Uryuu that Lis free trade
aad froe stiver sophistry lias lost
caste with the poople. No *tw knows
better that he that It wonld be politi
cal suicide to attempt to corduwt a
campaign hi defense of thus* priori
pies. Fre» silver and free trade art
dead. Bepubliean prosperity has dis
credited them in the minds of the peo
ple and iias stamped them out forever,
Mr. Bryan still adheres to them, but.
with all Ids boasted fortitude, he dare
rod attempt openly to Impress then
upon the minds of the electors.
Tlit* Faruirri rroi|ior.
Tin* American Agriculturist will
hardly he* accused of being a partisan
publication. It is one of the oldest, us
well as most substantial of the period
icals devoted to the interests of tin*
farmers, and whatever appears in its
columns is worthy of credence and |
Consideration. In the I* ue of this
mugualne for March 17, 1900, an artl- j
cle appeared which gives very dearly
the condition of the farmer today as
compared with hie condition during I
the years of Democratic suprem
acy Ui the 'hut. These figures Were ill
moat part derivet} from •surces which
the Agriculturist vofjchg* f*r as yecu
Rite. The editor Indulged In a Mt&c in
dependent Irivestlpatfon aloag these |
lines and fr m aaswers from a Mat of i
many humlred correspondents, in l
whom lie placed great faith, he de-1
rived the figures which he gives in the I
article from which we condense the |
The advance in farm values In the I
I'nitcd States in the year 1900 ns com
pared with the years of Democratic
depression, 1894-90, Is shown by the j
following figures:
tJain in value live stock. . .$098,000,000 i
lain in value staple crops. 4o1,oo0,ihm)
tJain in value live stock *
products . 370,000,000 j

Totnl gain .$1,009,000,000
flaili in real estate.$2,550,000,000
Total advance .$4,219,000,<»00
The above figures show that the pro
duce of farms of the- 1'uited States In
the year 1899 realized to tin1 farmers
$1,000,000,000 more than in any
of the years 1894-90. The farm value's
for 1899 arc given as follows:
Land, buildings, etc. .. .$14,500,000,000
Live stock . 2,558,000,000
Improvements and ma
chinery . 500,000.000
Total .$17,558,000.000 J
The total of these items in the Dem
ocratic year 1895 was $14,200,000,000
and tlie highest previous figure
reached was in 1889, when the total
was $15,984,000,000.
The prices received by the farmers
per head for live! stock in 1900 com
pared with t lie lowest point since*
1892, which was during the years of
Democratic depression, is shown in
tlie* following table:
Low Point 19440
Horses .183.05 $45.00,
Mules . 39.00 48.87
Cows . 21.40 31.12 1
Cattle .. 14.15 24.83
Sheep . 1.80 2.97 j
Hops . 4.13 4.09
The editor of the Agrioultlirlst turns 1
from these ligures, showing the pros
pemtis condition of the farmers, to an !
other line of argument, which is also
n very telling one. He takes up the
question of farm mortgages and lie
finds that ten years ago the farms of
the (Tilled States were encumbered
to the amount of $Ltt8ti,O0O,OllO. This
year this large amount has been re
duced to *HUO.O0tUi0O In l.V*l the av
erage si7,e of eaoh mortgage was .
$1,221. In l'.ssi th<‘ average alxe was
$1."«ai In 1st St, 74 isr cent of these
mortgages Were for purehnse price
