STATEMENT OF PACTS
It is about titno, in tho shifting econ
omy of morals and tho row demands
on them (or high grado exploitations of
right and wrong, for tho nowspnpers to
cither toil tho truth about a dead man
or let him alono. A bad man when
dead is a dead bad man. What is tho
uso or tho sonso of throwing ovor him
a mantlo of charity so thick and vast
that it is really a joke? Another wiso
reform, too, would bo novor to mention
suicides. Clay Center, Kan., Times.
It is too bad to lind that a watchdog
is a sheep-killer, but that is usually the
case with watchdogs who bark too
much and ostentatiously display their
watchfulness. Wo nro led into this
train of thought by tho discov
ery that a cortnin Omaha editor with
nn aromatic name has had his hand in
tho stato's poskot, and was removing
shekels therefrom, even while ho was
yelping loudest against tho tax evading
railroads and other dream bogies. Can

Ab-ut tho only point tho fusionists
are trying to mako is that J. H. Mickoy
is a banker and thoreforo ho is not en
titled to bo trusted with tho Nebraska
subernatorial roins. If this bojtruo,
then why do tho fusionists favor A. C.
Shallonberger for congress when every
mother's son of them in tha Fifth con
gressional district knows that Shallen
bergor is a banker? Tho fusionists are,
and always havobcon, inconsistent and
therefore thoy are always kept in hot
water. Hastings Tribune.
A cheorfttl disposition is oao of tho
greatest blessings that can bo bestowed
upon mortal man. Wealth or poverty,

of littlo importance in comparison.
Many an individual surrounded by con
ditions conduclvo to happiness loads
a life of wretchedness for lack of habit
ual cheorfulnoss. Low spirits may be
caused by ill health. Perhaps In most
eases thoy aro thus caused, but in sonio
instances tho dMiculty seems a matter
of habit. A man of this descrip ion
growls at his wife, scowls at tho chit
dron, kicks tho dog, swears at thu cow
and makes himself anil everyone about
him entirely misotablo. Such an Inivi.t
dual either deserves profound sympa

ROOSEVELT'S NARROW ESCAPE
President's Carriage Wrecked and His
Body Guard Instantly Killed.
At Pittsfiold, Mass., Wednesday aft-
ernoon President Koosovclt escaped a
tragic death by only a few feet in a
collision between his carriago and tt
trolloy car, whilo one of his most trust,
od guards, Secret Sorvieo Agent Wil
liam Craig, was Instantly killed and
David J. Pratt of Dalton, who was
guiding tho horsos attached to tho
vehicle, was seriously injured. Presi
dent Roosevelt himself was badly
shaken up, but received only a slight
facial bruiso. Secretary Cortelyou, who
occupied n seat directly opposito tho
President in the landau, got a minor
wound in the back of tho head. Gov
ernor Crano of Massachusetts, who sat
besido tho President, escaped prncti
cally without a scratch.
Tho carriago was demolished and tho
uorso on tho side nearest tho car was
killed. Tho crow and passengers of
tho car escaped injury.
Tho nccident occurred whilo tbo
President and party wore driving from
Pittsburg to Lenox, through South
stroot, onoof tho principal thorough
fares of Pittslield. Tho accident was
witnessod by hundreds of poople, who
had gathered to greot tho President.
This morning's papers state that all
tho injured persons are getting along
nicely, though President Roosevelt was
still much distressed by tho tragic
death of his friend, Detective Craig.

To the Electors of Webster County and All
Re it generally known, that cu Juno 21, 100J, ill n-was a Peope'
Paity county convention held in Red Cloud, in said ennntv. for the put
pose of placing in nomination a count v attorney and a Representatives
to the next Legislatute. On the ii.foiiu.il It.illi.t t .e delegates favoted the
nomination of L C PoMgur for Representative. At thi point I nu'd and
was granted tho privilege of addressing tho convent! mi, bellevii g it to b
my duty to mako known thu action 'of L. C. IVlslgrr on the freight rutu bill
in the last Legislature, by stating to the delegates then and llieie assem
bled, that 011 or about March 1 1, 1001, I noticed in tin daily papers that L
C. Peisiger, Representative from said county, had v-iteil in ttio Iio'Im
ngiiinst J. C. Spiechei's Height rate bill, known u. house toil No. 'J1U, In
which was asked a general reduction on freight tate nt l.'i nor cent; nun,
that prior to thu mooting of thu last L gishituru and after tho decision on
the Newberry bill, the railroads of the at.tte laheil the i.itis mi lue stock
and grain, thereby taking out of the pockets of thu farineis of the state
and placing in the vaults of tho above railroads about thu Mini of three
hundred thousand dollars a year, over uud above the rates that weru in
force at tho tiiuu of the passage of tno Newberry bill As I had about
finished, Mr. Householder, who was lljat Reprcsentotivo from Webster
and Adams counties, asked if lie might explain. I said, "Certainly, sir "
He did so by stating that thcto were two fieight bills; that tho other bill,
known as the Ollis bill, was preferable to Mr. Sprecher's bill, himself hav
ing voted for thu Sprecher bill, and that L. C. Poisiger voted against it on
that account. At this point Mr. O. R. Pitney, Senator from this, Franklin
and Nuckolls counties, spoko up and said this was so, for ho remembered
something to that meet. Of coursu 1 took my seat, having been knocked
out for awhile, and Air. Poisiger was nominated. Now, IJclaim and make
tho statement that this legislative contingent was in leaguo with ono au
other for the purpose of 11 renomination, and that they did then and there
distort, pervert, vilify, nnd fawn at tho feet of Mammon, and the house
journal and tho scnuto journal will bear mo out. As to tho Sprecher bill,
or house roll No. 243, I ask you to look in tho house journal on pages 280
207 and 92G and 927. You will notice that this was tho general freight
measuie; that the Ollis bill, described later on, related to live stock only.
The Sprecher bill was read tho first time on January 24, 1001, and on the
second time on January 25, 1901, was referred to tho committee on rail
roads. It was reported back to tho house on March 11, 1001. by tho rail
road committco for indeliuite postponement, and was postponed by such
men as L. C. Poisiger voting for tho railroad corporations. There wero
four Republican members who voted for tho bill, and if tho fusion forces
had voted as thoy wero elected to voto tho bill would have been placed on
general file; but they seemed to bo in a great hurry to kill tho bill.
As I was not satisfied in regard to Mr. Householder's explanation, I
wroto Mr. J. C. Sprecher, who was tho leader in tho houso on tho fusion
siuo, to explain to mo in regard to tho Ollis bill. Ho answered, stating
thnt tho Ollis bill, known as houso roll No. 255, was only a stock rate bill,
relating to llvo stock; that it passed the houso regardless of party, but that
tho senate killed it; that O.H. Pitney was a dodger on this bill, making
two Judascs from Webster county. Had this ratio held good throughout
tho state wo would havo had about 180. But, boholdt I had the honor of
being selected as a delegato to tho senatorial convention held in Red Cloud
for tho counties of Nuckolls, Webster and Franklin. There wero but four
delegates from Webster, threo from Franklin and nono from Nuckolls, and
as O. R. Pitney was seeking tho second nomination 1 faced him with the
charge that ho was no bettor than Poisiger. Ho wanted to know why, and
I said he dodged the Ollis bill. Ho at first denied it, when I showed him
Sprechcr's letter, who he defamed by saying ho was crazy. Rut, on going
Into tho convention and reading the Sprecher letter, ho sang another tune.
Ho said whilo in tho senate ho received woid from homo that his family
was sick and that ho left tho evening before tho last day, claiming that tho
Ollis bill was voted upon on the last day. As ho had made two or threo
bobblos already, I thought I wculd look the matter up. I procured the
house journal and tho senate journal and, as expected, I found on looking
over tho senate journal that O. 11. Pitney attended tho last day of tho legis
lature answering to rool call in tho morning also in tho afternoon after re
cess and I found lhat he voted on nearly all bills coming up the last day
and on tho one just prior to the Ollis bill being No. 4G0 then the Ollis bill
came up and when Pituey's name was called he was absent, ho had dodged.
And to sustain what I havo said, in regard to O It. Pitnoy, I refer you to
senate journal pages 827, 850, 881 to 940 and 1077 which you can bco iu the
court houso iu Red Cloud, cr at my residence in Cowlcs nnd I will be
pleased to show any paries that wish to look tho journal ovor. As regards
tho Ollia bill, four republican members voted for it, this would have been
sufiicient if the fusion senators had toed tho mark. But instead, tho fusion
forces killed all anti-monoply legislature, in tho last legislature, and those
from Webster county want to go back so that they can do tho job over
again. I shall expect all the Wall Stroot crow to vote for tho abovo nomi
nees; but believo there is enough honest men in Webster county to send
that will vote, at least, for tho cordinal principles of tho Peoples Party, the
lowering of ratos, for which all the peoplo would call them blessed. Judas
betrayed his master for "30 pieces of silver," afterwards bringing them to
tho temple and throwing them down then going out and hanging himsolf.
