VanWyok, tho millionaire can

Ob Saturday, several prominont

strayed off after tho great calamity
erase we learned, havo decided to come
baek to the republicans, asserting that
they could seo no hopo for tho
people's party, whon thoy wcro compel
led to nominato millionaires for office.
More will follow.
i We should imagino that tho Inde
pendent party would fool proud of
Van Wyofc. Since its first inoipicnoy
they havo bearatod cvory man in tho
eeuntry whoso complexion was taintod
with a yellow tint of a cool million,
only at last to run into a snaro, and
nominate VanWyck, a man who is

what is true of Olovoland will be true
ef Mr. MoKeighan, whon a man pre
sumes that he owns tho offioe then the
people give thoir votes to the other
fellow, hence Mr. Andrews, will bo
the next congressman.
The time has como when our voters
should take into consideration the
faet, that mon should bo eloctdd to
ofice who havo sound qualifications
for it. The independent nominations
in Webster county aro certainly far
from being sStisfaotory to even tho
rank and file of thoir own party. Tho
republicans on tho other hand have in
the two Macks, MoOalluni and McNltt,
men who will bo a credit to tho offico
to which thoy havo boon nominated,

Hon. W. E. Androws to replaco him, a

To road over the stuff
published in the independent
japers ono would think that there was
sot a loyal or honest hoart in the old
parties, but that all of tho patriotism
for country, homo and native land
were iasido of their lines. Tho facts
are that no moro loyal peoplo live than
ara is the republican ranks, and right
here wo might say that with all.of tho
efforts put forth by tho calamity
party, the lovers of good government
aid honest money, will elect Benja
sail Harrison, president, along with
congressional, state and county
Tho cry of our independent friends
that they must havo $50 per capita
in order to do business, would simply
bo suioide. Just after tho war and
during tho latter part of tho great
conflict, wo rooolloot tho condition of
tho financos quite well. Every
commodity had a ficticious value.
Better by far have prices thnt are
reasonable than to havo hay sell at
140 or I BO per ton, Ac. War prices
were high, and out ot proportion to
what thoy would have boen under tho
ordinary conditions of business.
Speculations ran rife then, and for tho
last thirty years people havo been
rushing blindly onward in the same
manner, without stoppiaa; to consider
that a reckoning day would come.
They bought largely of everything
that was morohantable, and tf without
monoy, struok off to some money
shark and borrowed at high rates or
interest in order to make a deal that
they could see millions In. In the
meantime, prioes in all lines of busi
ness wore tending on the decline, and
finally tho day came for reokoning,
and when it came, mon saw whore
thoy had made a mistake War
prices oould not ba maintained
always and the orash camo, $50 per
oapita could not help them, it might
make high prices for a whllo but
sooner or later another orash would
como far greater than the present
ono, and then what would bo the re
sult? No amount of complaining or
calamity howling would pay tho
debts, the government oould not holp
ynu pay your debts. How would you
do it then ? Only one way and that
is to pay yonr debts off if possible,
and start new, if not do tho best you
can. Fiat money would only oontinuo
tho struggle for an indenuito period.
The matter should be considered
calmly and new efforts put forth to
rotrieve tho lost fortunes by industry
and not by idleness, and a longing
for some one to help you. God pros
Eers him who works for prosperity,
ut tho complaining man rarely evor
gains tho 'coveted priso. Industry
and ooonomy brings tho dosired effect.
Bight is right, might is might, in
dustry is industry and folly is folly,
and we havo an opinion based an in
vestigation, that tho man who waits
around for something to turn up that
will cive him that which he oan onlv
gain oy laborious efforts, must moot
with most and certain defeat, and
waiting for $50 per capita to help
him out is folly pure and simple, and
no political party witb wild theories
based on uncertainties will help him to
gain a dollar of lost wealth, this you
have got to do yourself if you get it,
$50 per capita might help the farm
er soil corn for $2 00 a bushel, hay for
$50 per ton, Ac but whon he took his
$2.00 or $50 to buy somo necessary
article wonldho be able to make or
buy more than he does with an hon
est dollar today ? What the people
need' is a kooner insight into business,
unbiased opinion, on all subjects, and
not allow themselves to be lead off by
thcoratioal and visionary sohemes that
ultimately worse tbeir condition in
stead of battering it.

through Iowa to Burlington, on the
XissiMippl river, thence via Galesburg

run in twenty hours. And right here I
want to apeak ot the superior accommo

other line we nassed. Their vestibule re

serves special mention is the manner in

tolt the trip from Bed Clond. Neb., to

hours, reeling somewhat tired but bar

I must speak here of the kind treat
ment we received from all railroad em
ployees. Wbilo the C. B. & Q. had the
beet accommodations, the employees
were all gentlemanly kind and attentive
to the comfort of all passengers.
The second day after our arrival we at
tended the Boldiere' annual pionio held
at Silver Lake, one of the greatest sum
mer resorts ia New York. The lake is
located in the town of Castile, Wyoming
Co.. and is indeed a beautiful body of
water threo miles long and one mile
wide. Several steamers and sail boats
and a great number of row boats afford
the visitor a sonrco of pleasure and en
joyment not found in other plaoes. The
estimate was from ten to fifteen thousand
in attendance at this picnio, and said to
be much smaller than usual.
August 4th, we attended (at the lake)
the Wyoming county pioneer picnio and
there were present over twenty thousand
people. They oamo from Buffalo, Roch
