braska men made decided headway.
They filibustered cleverly and with a
knowledge of parliamentary proced
ure that several times threw the con
vention into fearful snarls. They
fought long and hard to have Tem
porary Chairman Jacob S. Coxey of
-Ohio made permanent chairman, not
because of any affection thoy bore him,
ftut because they bolleved they could
tangle htm up and lu tbnt way stand

en'al, easy-going presiding ollicer,
begged them to allow hint to with

Ho is a big man, with a. bigger voice,
and ho fights. Ills rulings weie lair,
but he would not be bluffed or bullied,
and ho "talked back" In vigorous
style to the Nebraska men when they
uttacked him. The tartest dialogue of
the convention took place between
Honnecker and T. II. Tibbies, the white
haired dean of tho Nebraska delega
tion. Tho tilt ceased because both
men were so angry thoy could do noth
ing but breathe hard and glare nt
each other. Later thoy shook hands.
Tho platform declares that- the issu
ing of money is a function of-the gov
ernment alone that should not be dele
gated to any corporation or inaividual.
The demand ia mado that money be is
sued direct to the people, without tho
intervention of banks, and be made a
full legal tendor for all debts, public
and private. The working of tho na
tional banking law is criticised and
demand made that the power to issue
money be taken from the banks. The
Aldrlch bill Is denounced as "a meth
od by which tho nation and' the peo
ple can both be robbed." The Fowler
bill is also denounced.
The plank on trusts demands that
the government own and control the
railroads and all public utilities, which
in their nature aro monopolies. Tho

SHELDON'S VIEWS ON CURRENCY
(Nebraska Governor Believes Fowler
Bill Is Too Revolutionary.
Lincoln, April 3. Governor Shel
don, who has been in Washington for
a week gave the Associated Press a
statement of big viewa on currency
The governor believes the Fowler
bill is too revolutionary and smacks
of Populistlc Ideas, and ho does not
bollevo it will accomplish either the
purpose for which it was intended by
Its supporters or furnish the relief
demanded for an elastic currency.
"What the country demands is cur
rency legislation which will provide a
circulating medium -which will not be
come concentrated in any one place, to
an extent which will cause a depres
sion over the entire country follow
ing a temporary stringency in any
paitictilar section. Doubtless the Aid
rich LIU will not become a law with
out some modification, but those who
have made a study of financial condi
