JUNE 25, 1903. THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT 13 The Fairview Celebration Men unaccustomed to newspaper work frequently fail to understand the necessity for promptness in deciding matters. Last week there was talk of cancelling the date of holding the state committee meeting and . fixing upon July 3 instead, in order to take advantage of excursion rates and al low the members of the committee an opportunity to remain over and take iu the Fourth of July celebration at Fairview. - It was decided to make this change, and The Independent an nounced the change 'and the celebra tion in one item. . After the editorial page had been sent to the stereotyper, the powers that be again changed their minds and concluded,, after all, that the meeting must come as originally set. And the forms had to be hauled back, chariges made in two different ar ticles, one "killed" and a new plate made. The result was that no men tion was made of the Fairview cele bration last week. The following, quoted from The Commoner, is self explanatory. It is only necessary to add that populists generally appre ciate Mr. Bryan's enterprise in secur ing the noted speakers he has for this occasion, and that they will come fjom far and near to hear them: The Fairview Jefferson club will hold an old-fashioned Fourth of July celebration at Fairview this year. The readers of The Commoner will remem ber that Fairview is the name given to Mr. Bryan's home and, is situated about four miles southeast of Lin coln. The exercises will be held in a grove close to the street car line and about a quarter of a mile from Mr. Bryan's residence. Mayor Tom L. Johnson of Cleve land, O., Col. Richard S. Wynne of Ft. Worth, ex., and Dr. Howard S. Tay lor of Chicago will deliver addresses. Professor Hagenow's band will furnish music for the occasion and a choir selected from The Commoner office force will lead in the singing of pa triotic airs. The celebration of the anniversary of the nation's birth has in too many places degenerated into a day of sport for the people and into a day of money-making for merchants. The Fairview Jefferson club desires to return to the simplicity and sincer ity of the earlier day celebrations when the people were wont to gather together on such a day to renew ac quaintances, exchange opinions, sing together inspiring songs, heai the Declaration of, Independence read, and listen to the discussions of questions affecting the national welfare. The club is fortunate in being able to se cure the attendance of the distin guished citizens whose names are mentioned above. Of Tom Lu John son it is not necessary to speak. His able and courageous defense of the in terests of the masses has earned for him his position of leadership of the Ohio democracy, an he is using that leadership to bring about public re forms. Col. Wynne is one of the most prominent lawyers of Texas, an ora tor of note and a citizen of high ideals. Dr. Taylor is city attorney of Chicago under Mayor Harrison, and is not only an able speaker, but is so accomplished a writer of verse that he has been dubbed poet laureate of the Chicago platform democracy. All are " cordially invited. ; ALFALFA HARVEST IS ON IN NEBRASKA.

HARDY'S COLUMN The Fourth of July is near at hand; it is a noted, honored and glorified record day. Our early forefathers on that day of that month in the year 1776 signed a written declaration that we were determined to have an inde pendent government, a home govern ment, and would no longer be gov erned by a king three thousand miles away. Now what would be done if a lot of Filipinos should get together and sign the declaration and publish it. Samuel would probably do just as the king of England did go to killing off those who wanted to gov ern themselves. There were 291 cases of typoid fever within the last three months among the students of the New York univer sity and the inhabitants of Ithaca, surrounding, and, 29 deaths. It is gen erally admitted that the trouble came through the impurity of the water svpply. There Is strong evidence that the world is . improving morally, relig iously and politically. Morality has nothing to do with crime, but does restrict vice. Personal Indulgence of appetite and lust is vice, but when indulgence trespasses upon" the rights of others it becomes crime. There is not the Indulgence of appetite and lust there was fifty, years ago. Many vic ious people are extremely secret in their indulgence. In open daylight they pretend to be temperate and vir tuous. In former days church men and prophets believed in polygamy and sheltered concubines. . If the state officers who put more money into their pockets during terms cf office than the state constitution specifies are compelled to hand the extra money back to the state then the members of the past six or eight legislatures should be made to pay back all their salaries received ex cepting one hundred and twenty dol lars. The amendment to the constitu tion increasing their., pay : to three hundred dollars never was adopted by the people; it was counted in by re publicans and is no more a part of the constitution than the prohibition amendment voted for. We hope our governor will not com mute the sentence of the murderer now at the foot of the gallows, in our penitentiary. A murderer should be put where he could never commit an other crime. See what a life prisoner undertook to do this week in Colorado prison. If there was any doubt of the guilt of our prisoner it would be dif ferent. Criminals fear hanging more than they fear any other punishment and fear Is what should be sown among" criminals.' We punish not be cause crime has been committed, but to prevent crime in the future.
