. It is reported by our consul in Mex
ico that within 25 years past over a
lialf billion of gold has been invested
' in Mexico by American citizens, in ag
riculture; cattle herding, mining and
; railroads. It shows that all Ameri
cans are not afraid of silver. The
Mexican dollar has a little more sil
ver than the American. There is no
r.gold in circulation there for as soon
as a piece is found it is shipped to
the United States and sold for silver
or any other thing they want. The
difference in the money gives them a
premium on everything they sell here
and use a tariff for everything we
Church entertainments and diver
sion of the young people is one of the
new and winning fingers ot Christian
ity. The organization of the young
people into leagues and clubs, leaving
the old people out, is a winning and
attractive measure. The idea that a
church member must never laugh or
smile, never be entertaining or so
cial, is all wrong. Such doctrine will
drive most of the young people away
from the church. Young people wlil
have recreation and, amusement and
the church should afford them that
of an innocent and harmless charac ter.
Go to the St. Paul's Methodist
church any evening in the week and
Germany has been sticking up her
nose at the United States for several
years. She seems to want us to do
something mean, so she may have a
good excuse for fighting us. She ha?
not forgotten what our commanding
officer told them at Manila, that if
they got between our guns and the
Spaniards our bullets would go
; through them.
If they would allow farmers to es
tablish banks by putting vp their un
incumbered farms for security of bills,
as the old safety fund bank law of New
York did, it would bo reasonable. The
farmers used their farms and loaned
out their bills.
The opinion has quite generally pre
vailed that all the plow land fit for
cultivation in the United States has
been taken and is iiow being farm?d.
'This is a great mistake. There ar
millions of acres thai can be made in-,
to splendid farm hemes. Much of it
will require irrigation. Some of tin
-eastern farmers object to the gov
ernment spending money to irrigate
.desert land. They say it will .reduce.
the value of their lands by increasing

- The past week hap been an educa
tional week for Lincoln. A state teach
ers meeting has been held and over
1,800 registered from different parts
of the state. It looks as though book
qualification and college graduation
was becoming the only basis of a first
grade certificate. Of the hundreds of
teachers' certificates we have signed
we never signed a fust grade until we
knew the applicant had succeeded in
managing and governing a school. Col
lege graduates often fail and are no
more fit for teachers than one-legged
men are for running races.

his lecture, he asked those who were

He then asked those who opposed such

It is reported that the Filipinos have

The eastern high tariff fellows are
pleading for free trade in beef and
coal. Everything they buy they want,
free, but everything they sell must
have high protection. That is republicanism.
There are two reasons why the east

Tha Hen or the Egg
Editor Independent: The Massa
chusetts commissioners' report as
quoted by The Independent last week
that a man is not taxed for the! ex
pense of protection or of recompense
in any respoct to the state for any ser
vice rendered him is an assertion cal
culated to stagger sanity and we would
all naturally want to know then why
is he taxed at all and the commis
sioners' reply only leaves us in a dazed
mental condition to enquire who are
the lunatics, the commissioners or our
selves. They say it is because his orig
inal relations to society require itjV" j
Isn't that a stunner? "Who is : the
original, the human being or society'
Which of the two ; iS creator which
created? The commissioners seem to
say that society is the original creator.
There can be no progress made po
litically in any direction until this
question is settled for good. "Wo't
The Independent start the discussion
of this matter as it 'is fundamental in
its bearings? We are all tied up un
til its final settlement for if the com
missioners are right, the human be
ing will not be allowed by society to
have 'anything to say at all at leas''
not those who accept such a verdict:
and right3 they certainly cannot have
if the commissioners have their say.
(The Independent is always glad to
have its readers discuss any question
that tends for good to the human race
Of course the human being preceded
society away back, no one knows ex
actly when. Doubtless there was a
time, if we are to believe the Biblical
story of creation, when the hen pre
ceded the egg; but nowadays the egg
comes first. Society was here be
fore any human being now living ap
peared on the scene. Men are social
animals. They are born in a socia
state. It is difficult to conceive what it
would be like to have haman beings
and no society whatever. Ed. Ind.)

ing mention The Independent
"It seems opportune to state that
after a further investigation of the
subject. I am more than ever convinced
that this (the Post check plan) or
some other method of making remit
tances, more simple and convenient
than any now in existence, is a great
need of the people." From report of
Third Assistance Postmaster General
Madden for 1902. .

An Elastic Currrency
Editor Independent: ,JJ. W. Hardy
asks what elastic currency means.
Gen. James B. Weaver defined it
once in a speech. He said that when
he was going to school a playmate
showed him a piece of rubber and Jim
was very anxious to know what it
was. "Why, it's elastic," said his play
mate. "Let me show you how It
works. Take this end between your
teeth and hold tight." Jim did and
soon he saw that short piece lengthen
to a yard, when suddenly it contracted
with such force that Jim was par
alyzed, while his playmate shouted,
"It's the hot stuff, isn't it, Jim?"

"This Post check plan seems to be
practicable, to accomplish several de
sirable results simultaneously and to
afford accommodation to the entire
public at a minimum of labor and ex
pense." From article by Hon. H. A.
Castle, auditor for the postoffice de
partment, in North American Review.
