THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT, MARCH 19, 1903. in For a long time the plutocratic dail ies 'announced regularly, six times a week that Bryan was dead. Now they say that they are going to kill him by taking the organization of his own state away from him. It la not Bryan that they want to kill, however,. It Is the principles that he advocates. If ho would abandon those principles and -join in with the Hill-Cleveland crowd and advocate the policies that they advocate, in the eyes of the re publican and reorganizer . dailies be would immediately become a great- statesman, orator" and patriot One of the deceptions that plutocracy has -always practiced is, instead of de nouncing the good principles that men advocate, they denounce the men. Plutocrats and kings always declare that they have. only the good of the Dcople as their ultimate aim and ob ject wssws ' Judge Grosscup first issued a re straining order against the meat trust and after that he issued a tem porary injunction. Meantime the trust goes on its peaceful way, con tinues its combinations and fixes prices just as it always did. After a while Judge Grosscup may make his injunction permanent, but that will hot interfere with the operations of the meat trust at all. If, however, the trust was prosecuted under the crim inal section of the law and the peni tentiary loomed up before Armour, Swift and the rest of them, the sit uation would be different. Neither Attorney General Knox, Judge GrOSS- Wiin rnr th resident have any idea of doing 8ucn(JSJJss tiiat- 4 The rtomnrrfts of this state seem to be "considerable riled" over the pro wninn nt the reorganizes to coma here and take charge of their organ ization and send a delegation to the national convention to vote for a Dave Tim randiriatft for resident But thev will have to do" something be e tW' talking and writing letters to the papers to prevent, it. They wil -have to see to it that democrats at tend the primaries and that the fake democrat who has been; voting the re publican ticket for the last ten years is kept out of the county and state 'conventions. Democrats in Nebraska when thinking or talking about that party in this state are too apt to un consciously include the whole fusion Hote of the state, but-when it comes to democratic primaries, populists ar9 excluded. . r The only assistance that , . they can render will be to stand by , and help the democrats keep republi can from' voting. . 1 TREASON, ANARCHY, SOCIALISM Republican Postmaster's Ideas of Which ... There- are Sereral Hundred "Sich" In braka In one of Upham Adams' articles de scribing the three citizens of Llncoln 'ville occurs the following from the "republican postmaster: "'What are you looking so glum !about, ; Brother Jenkins?" askedCol "onel Monroe, pulling his chair up to :the f.re and passing his cigar case to Judge Sawyer. "Has the sale of .stanms fallen off or a money order gone astray?" I "It's Flannagan," declared the post ' master. "Flannagan? What's Flannagan .done now?" ' ," "Flannagan's the head brakeman on "No. 81," explained Jenkins, noting 'the puzzled look on Judge Sawyer's iace. "He was in here just before you -came. Flannagan's an ungrateful dog if there, is. one.. He showed, me his 'pay envelope. His wages have been increased 10 per cent Last month he ;got $60, this month he gets ?66. Ev- - eryone but the conductors have been -'. raised engineers, firemen, brakemen, switchmen, and yardmen. Now what do you suppose Flannagan said?" "Never could guess in the world,' returned Colonel Monroe. "What did he;say?" "He said he oughter been raised ten years ago," declared Postmaster Jenk ins, dropping the red hot poker on the zinc. "I'd raise him if he was work ing -for me! There's gratitude for . youl I told him right to his face that he'd been a long time in Ireland be- fore he got $60 a month, say nothing of $66. ... On top of it all Flannagan savs the company didn't raise their pay because they loved them, but be J cause .. it knew they were ready to strike. . - He brags that their union brought the railroad to time. I'd like to be a railroad president, and see any union1 bring me to time! I ten you, unions are -ruining this country. Yes, , sir," ruining it! , Things have come to a pretty pass when men like Flanna- 1 ' can -can' dictate to: the president of ' "the M. N. and W7! If that Isn't trea son. I don't know what -treason is, It's treason and anarchy and socialism f-thafa what .it is!" . , : ; ' "Don't take it much to heart, Jenk- na" said Colonel Monroe, soothingly.' 'Flannagan is only a rough working- . A. lJll man, witnout your aencaxe aenaium tles, and hasn't had your educational advantages. Then again tne loss oi two or three fingers may tend to make him irritable and to biaa his judgment But you haven't told all the news about the railroad. They have in creased something besides wages.". "You refer- to the new freight rate schedule; I presume, observed Judge Sawyer. "I heard of it yesteraay. The M. N. & W. ha3 raised rreignt rates an average of 10 per cent, re sponded the colonel. "What do you think of that, Jenkins? Perhaps that accounts for Flannagan's good luck, which he so little appreciates." It's no money out of my pocket,' returned Jenkins, doggedly. I. don t ship any stuff. Besides 10 per cent isn't much of as increase In rates, it will hardly be felt Don't you tninK so, Judge?" Judge Sawyer was deep In the study of the blue flames through the isin glass and made no reply. 'Let's see how Llncolnville comes out on these higher salaries and high er freight rates," suggested Colonel Monroe, reaching for a block of paper and a pencil. "This is a division point and more than the average number of railroad men live here. There are hundreds of towns in the state without ... . i ITT a railroad employe as a resident, we have forty of them. We'll average their former wages at $75 a month, or $900 a year. The forty of them have therefore been receiving $36,000 a year. The 10 per cent increase adds $3,600 to their incomes. This is the rail road's contribution to Llncolnville. Thi3 money will be spent on our stores and some of it be deposited in Judge Sawyer's bank. Flannagan gets $72 of it. That will pay his rent for six months. He Is one of the winners. Now the question is, How does the railroad come out? How much freight business did the M. N. and W. do in Llncolnville last year? Do you know the approximate figure, judge?" Judge Sawyer consulted a "notebook and at ter a pause said: , :; .;..-!:;..:. "The year's freight business of the M. N. & W. in Lincolnville was about $160,000, Colonel Monroe." "Very well," continued the colonel, jotting down the figures. "That is the amount, Jenkins, that the town of Lincolnville paid the M. N. and W. for bringing to us our groceries, meats, furniture, pianos, lumber and the thousand and one things we pur chase from our merchants or consume as raw material in our factories. This year the company is going to pay Flannagan and, his fellow workers $3, 600 increase in wages and charge the merchants and manufacturers of Lin colnville $16,000 extra' for freight bills. What have youto say to that?" "It don't make any difference to me," asserted Postmaster Jenkins. "I only wish I was a stockholder in the road. It's their property and they have a right to charge anything they please. The same people that are al ways kicking about raiiroads and oth er corporations would do the same thing if they were railroads and cor porations. I don't own nothing my self, except a house with a mortgage on it, but I stand up for property rights and vested interests. They have made the country what it Is. What would Lincolnville be if it wasn't for the M. N. and W. railroad? Nothing! Nothing." vnen the colonel points out that the merchants will add that $16,000 to the price of their goods .and Mr. Jenkins' share of it will be about-$50, the postmaster suddenly changes the subject. 3?
