A Brief Review ef Their AcUrcKCs at the
R. L. Koostor and Hon. W. S. Sum
mors, United Stales district attornoy
addressed a good sizod and enthusias
tic and nttontivo audienco at tho opera
house Inst Wednesday evening on tho
political issues of tho day. The speak
ers woro both gcod ones and unliko
some we heard this year, they com
manded tho attontion of thoir hearers
to tho end, and tho nudienco was larg
er at tho closo thau at tho beginning.
Both of theso gonttomen nro nblo law
yers and dissected tho war in tho Phil
lipplncs from a legal stand point.
Not only did thoy dissect our foreign
war but Mr. Summers vory truthfully
dissected tho politicnl record of Silas
Holcomb from tho timo ho entered pol
itics in tliia stato down to tho present
timo. Ho showed that Si had stood up
beforo conventions and gatherings of
tho fusion forces and declared that a
railroad pass was a bribo nnd at the
same time hadhis pockets full of them,
gave a brief history of tho recount bal
lot fraud, gavo a history of Holcomb's
settlement with state treasurer Bart-
ley and in which llartloy showed him
a cigar-box full of worthless securities
which ho admits he didn't even look at
and took Bartloy's word for it that
there was about n million thero, and
when asked by examining committee
why ho did not. do as the stato consti
tution said ho should in examining
tho accounts of tho stato tronsuror re
plied that "ho considered the stato
constitution a farce." And how Silas
had held tho mutual iusuranco bill
which had boon passed by both houses
until after their adjournment and then
vetoed it, nnd how at tho next legis
lature the samo identical bill was again
passed and Holcomb held up until ho
had boon elected president of a mutual
insurance company at a good salary
and then signed thu bill and accepted
tho position and salary as president of
the insurance company at the samo
time. Ho also told how the legislature
had appropriated 93,000 to pay Silas's
house rent, "or so much thereof as
might bo necessary" and quoted Hoi
comb's testimony showing that ho had
paid 930 dollars per month houso rent
for four years, orl 1440 and turned back
into tho stato treasury 9700.00. The
balanco 9860 according to Si, wont for
incidentals. When asked why he did
this when the constitution of the state
of Nebraska provided that such money
should bo used solely for tho purpose
for which it was appropriated and that
all but tho 91440.00 actually used for
house rent should havo been roturned
to the stato treasury, ho simply re
plied that ho "considered that clause
of tho constitution of tho state of Ne
braska "as a farce." And still In the
face of bis own often repeated
statement that "our state constitution
is a farce" ho is before the people as a
candidate for supreme judge and asks
the people to elect him to that do
sltion thatjhe may enforce tho laws
which in his estimation aro "a faroe."
The Philippine situation as dissected
by theso two legal gontlcinon is cer
tainly worthy of a wider circulation
than any country newspaper can give
It, and wan substantially as follows:
After Dowoy ;bad won his famous vic
tory in Manila bay it was tho tenti
ment of the entiro American people
that an army bu sent to tho Philippines
to capture thu city of Manila. This
was not only tho soutiment of the peo
ple but the sentiment of congress
then in session assembled, and evory
sonator in congress requested that at
least one regiment of such array be se
lected from liU statu. Tho army was
sent nnd the battle of Manila was
fought before thu news of tho signing
of tho penco protocol was received.
After tho signing of thu peace protocol
the peace commissioners met in Paris
and arranged tho terms by which
poaco was declared. Undorthis treaty
Spain granted freedom to Cuba and
csded to tho United States tho Islands
of Porto Rico, Guam nnd tho Philip
pine group, for the latter of which tho
United States paid Spain tho sum of
920,000,000. W.J. Bryan, was at tho
timo of tho signing of tho poaco proto
col poslr.g ns colonel of tho third Ne
braska rogimont, nnd immediately aft
er its signing resigned under tho Im
pression that bo was nooded worso in
politics than he was In tho army. On
tho return of tho poaco commissioners
Bryan went to Washington nnd advo
cated tho adoption of tho troaty under
whloh tho Philippine islands becnino a
part and parcel of the United Slates.
Tho treaty was adopted by an almost
unanimous vote of congress and tho
government of tho islands vested in tho
congress of tho United States and not
with tho president. Tho president of
the United Sta cs enn no more say to
tho Philippines you aro frco nnd Inde
pendent to form a government of your
own than ho can say tho samu to tho
pcoplo of Nobrnska. Ho can no mnro
say to tho pcoplo of tho Philippines
you aro freo to orgnnizo a government
as you seo tit, than could Abraham
Lincoln in 1801 say to thu south if this
government docs not suit you nro freo
and cau substituto a govornmont to
suit yourselves. Under the provisions
of tbo treaty these islands beenmo a
part of tho United Slates and thoy
must remain as such until disposed of
by a congress of tho United States and
not by the president. The prosidont
cannot make la law to .disposo of these
islands, nor can he instituto a govern
ment for them except such as now ex
ists. All tho prosidont can do Is to en
force the laws of tho United States and
this ho is induty bound to do by the oath
be took when ho became prosidont. It
is bis duty to quell robollion and trea
son within tho jurisdiction of tho Unit
ed States, and to protect the United
State flag whenever and wherever as
Bailed and if necessary to call out the
United States army to put down a
rebellion. Has tbe prosidont dono any.
thing but his swern duty nsiprcsidentf
Had W. J. Bryan boon president could
he havo dono otherwiso after having
taken tho presidential oath under
which tho president must quoll rebel
lion within tho jurisdiction of tbo
United States. Should tho United
States congress nt tho noxt session
grant tho Pbilippino islands com
plete independence, then the Unit
ed States army and navy should bo
brought home as theso Islands would
bo out of tho United Stato's jurisdic
tion, butns long as thoy remain United
States territory thoy must bo governed
by tho United States laws and tho pres
ident must enforce thorn. Aguinaldo
and his Tagal hordo stand before tho
United States government today as did
Jefferson Davis nnd the southern army
from 1961 to 1865 an armed body
rorebelling against Ithe United
States government on United States
territory, and the laws of the United
States, in tbe estimation of President
McKlnley must ho unforced. William
JonniangpP fd others to the
Claronco Reed, tho young man who
is a candidate on the republican ticket
for the ofllco of county olork was in
Guide Rock Saturday getting acquain
ted with tho voters and mado a favor
able impression on everyone be met.
Ho is a modest, unassuming young
fellow, but every bit a man the kind
of a one of whom soldiers are made,
and though ho don't seem to caro to
talk much about his toirible experi
ence on tho battle Held of Santiago,
yet the grim determination of his fea
tures indicato that ho is not a fellow to
faltor at anything and if ho bad the
use of his arm again wo would expect
to seo him back in the ranks carrying
a musket instead of at home running
for ofllco. He has pretty fully recov
ered the use of his left arm but his
right is still helpless and probably will
be for many months yet. Incidentally
he left a few souvonir cards among his
new acquaintances to refute the story
that he could not write. They pro
written with his left hand, but as onn
man romnrkod, "ho can write better
with his left hand than some people
who nre talking about him can writo
viUj both bandi."-Guldo KockaJfeaal.
Do not wash your hands and face with a common
laundry soap, or if you do, don't complain when you
find them rough, hard and chapped. Ordinary laundry
soaps are good for scrubbing floors, but not for the skin.
Ivory Soap makes a creamy lather that rinses easily and
takes the dirt with it. The natural oil of the skin
washed with Ivory Soap is not removed, and the skin is
left soft and smooth.
MKMT MM tY m PMCTI MIHU M. -MMMMUTt
The Cmir has boon critlzod by some
for tho paat;throo or four weeks on ac
coun of tho stand it has taken regard
ing two certain candidates on tho op
position ticket viz: Rev. L. A. Hussong
andRov. I. W.Edson. Now a word in
vindication of our position. Are those
two porsons any bettor than anyone
elso when they will stoop from their
pulpits to commingle in a county po
litical campaign? In our estimation
thoy nro not. Our estimation of a min
ister of tho gospel Is Jthnt ho is to bo
rovered, respected, looked upon as an
idoal, whoso actions and every day
lifo tho members of his congregation
tako as a motto to hotter fit them
selves for tho horo&ftor. How do theso
two comparo with an ideal pastor.
Do thoy want thoir followers to follow
in thoir footsteps? In our estimation
when thoy allowed their names to go
boforo tho people as candidates for
office thoy left tho rovcrunco nnd re
spect duo them ns ministers of tho gos
pel in the pulpit whoro it belongs, and
appeared boforo us a common, every
day, office-seeking, politician. We
have tho utmost respect for and rovere
theso two as ministers of tho gespel,
but as oQlco-sooking politicians thoy
aro no bettor than tho reBt of tbo oppo
sition tickot. It has been reported
that these two ministers were put on
tho tloket to strengthen it. Just whoro
tho additional strength was to como
from is hard to understand.
Tho populists no doubt when
they put theao two on tho tickot had
an idea that they could run for office
under their ministerial robes and their
followers would meekly say: "Where
he leads mo I will follow." This, wo
believe is the only reason tho two
preachers were put on the ticket. It
is cortain they wore not put on tbe
ticket on account of their qualities to
fill their positions. To tell tho truth
a minister who will cast asido bis min
isterial robo for a political job Is no
bettor thau was Judas Iscariot when
he accepted the thirty pieces of silver,
and we aro not alone m our belief.
