JULY 9, 1903.
A DEL MAR EDITION
l Mr. Ogl mi Oregon aargffsia in
The leitef below, from George Ogla,
one of the staunch populists of Ore
gon, will be found interesting not only
at showing the condition of the peo
ple's party there, but also as to his
suggestion of an Alexander - Del Mar
Edition of The Independent.
As to the suggestion, The Indepen
dent believes it a good one, but if it
it carried out it must necessarily be
lut. off some time yet. We do not wish
to make a "fad" of the special edition
idea and therefore must proceed leis
urely so as to give our readers a
hance. in digest, what they have read.
UndcubtedlyMr. Ogle's praise of Mr.
Del Mar's writings is not a whit too
great, and an edition quoting some of
his most striking passage would be
an eye-opener for those who have
pever read his books. Mr. Ogle says:
' Editor Independent: Enclosed find
$1.10; $1.00 to renew my subscription
to The Independent, the best paper
published, and 10 cents to send sample
topie3 to the list of my friends whose
names I enclose. .
. The populist party in Oregon is dis
rupted, but its former members are
rot all dead nor backslidden from the
cardinal principles of the true faith;
not by a long shot Some, it is true,
have turned traitor and joined the
g o. p.; some have allied themselves
with the socialist movement; other'?
are working with the democrats it
the hopes that the reorganizers will
not conquer the Bryan, or populistic
element of that party; but many of u3.
among whom is the present writer,
own allegiance to no party; still clix
to the cardinal tenets of the old faitti
and are waiting, waiting until the
democracy decides whether to advance
tc higher and more radical ground
and live, or to go backward, try the
experiment of running rival trains on
the same track, 1. e., ape the repub
lican platform and policy and die in
consequence; when a new party on
populist lines can be organized. ,
But 'While waiting it may be well
to do some quiet missionary work.
Your idea of Henry George and Karl
Marx editions is splendid, but why
r.ot publish a Del Mar Edition? This
would - do; more to advance populist
principles than either of the others,
good as they undoubtedly will be.
Whatever may be the merits of Mr.
Theobald's accusations against Cap
tain Ashby, he certainly does not err
in his high estimation of Alexander
Del Mar. Destroy all other writings
on money except the works of this
particularly acute thinker, and the
science of money would be far better
understood than it is today. He con
tinually drives home the truth that
underlies the real populist idea, "lim
itation is the very essence of money."
And his style is perfect; it equals
that of Buckle, the English historian
and philosopher, and higher praise
than this hath no man.
What do you say? Is it possible to
bring out such an edition in the near
future?" Would suggest a chapter or
two from the "Science of Money," one
or two from several of his many oth
er books, particularly his debate with
Prof. Thorold Rogers in the London
chamber of commerce on the silver
question in which he completely de
molished . the noted Englishman.
V I would speak for 100 copies now
and perhaps take many more.

Thriving Nebraska Company.
The people of Nebraska are begin
ning to realize the advantages to the
state and all the people to be derived
from building up home institutions.
This is particularly true in the in
surance business. There is no rea
son whatever why a Nebraskan should
go east to buy his life insurance. In
many cases the rates are higher and
the safety of the company is not as
good as . the home company.
The SECURITY MUTUAL LIFE
Insurance Company of Lincoln is a
thriving company that deserves the
careful consideration and liberal pat
ronage of all Nebraska people. The
following, is the certificate of author
ity from the state auditor for the cur

A Few QueslioriS
Editor Independent: I would" lik3
to ask a few questions about the treaty
between this great nation and the
sultan of Sulu:
1. Why was th treaty entered in
to and approved by our president?
2. What duties does this sultan and
his datoes perform to earn their sal
ary? Are they on the civil service list?
3. How many wives has this old
Mohammedan got, and how many con
4. How many slaves has he got?
5. How long will it take the slaves
to earn their market price "workirg
for nothing" a day?
6. Are the sultan and his datoes all
pirates and cannibals?
7. Have any Christian preachers
gene into this old sultan's den to act
p.s missionaries? '
8. Have any young lady school
teachers gone into his harem to edu
cate his children?; if so, what success
are ' they having? - '
9. When our government was mak
ing these treaties why did they not
make a treaty with AguinaTdo, and pay
bim a salary and establish' a protec
torate over bim nd other sultans and
datoes? Why did not Funston go and
catch this sultan and give him the
water cure? T, J. QUAIL.
(The speech of Hon. Malcolm R.
ratterson of Tennessee, delivered in
the house March 26, 1902, and printed
in the Congressional Record of April
1, 1902, will give Mr. Quail unequivo
cal answers to his questions. The In
dependent hopes to republish this
speech in the near future, but right at
the present time Its space is so crowd
ed with other matter that it cannot be
done. It is possible that Mr. Patter
son may have had his speech printed
ir pamphlet form. A letter addressed
to him at Memphis, Tenn., requesting
a copy of his speech would doubtless
receive careful attention. Most Amer
ican citizens know the answers to Mr
Quail's questions In a general way.
but Mr. Patterson's speech presents
the facts in such an undeniable man
r.er that The Independent would rather
wait and reprint than attempt , any
categorical answers to Mr. Quail on its
own account. Ed. Ind.)
The "Iowa idea" has been so thor
oughly done for that Governor Cum

found lodgment, has announced him
self as a candidate for vice president.

. Left Them Out
The appearance at the White house
of President Benjamin Ide Wheeler
of the University of California has
attracted much attention and revived
, story of a month ago in which the
president of the United States and
President Wheeler were the central
figures. It will be recalled that when
President Roosevelt was in California
he dedicated the University of Califor
The dedicatory ceremonies was held
in the university's amphitheatre which
William Randolph Hearst donated to
the university. It is well known that
Mrs. Phoebe Hearst, the mother oi
Representative Hearst, is the chief
benefactor of the University of Jai'.
fornix She was made a regent of
the state because of her munificent
donations to this institution.
For four years she has devoted her
self exclusively to this seat,, of learn
ing. She began by announcing a
world-wide competition for the univer
sity plans and these plans alone cost
ultimately ?100,000V Her totai contri
butions are said to aggregate i,uul-
President Wheeler on the occasion
of the dedication ceremonies read the
names of all the donors except those
of Mrs. and Mr. Hearst. The Califor
nia press and Calif ornians generally
were indignant at this omission..- No
one could understand why the name of
the chief benefactors of the univer
Ritv should be omitted when the names
oi! persons contributing comparatively
small amounts were read, more man
8,000 persons were said to be present
it the amDhitheatre when the exer
cises occurred and President Wheeler
did not mention the name of Heam,
rresnmahlv because he feared there
would be a great, popular demonstra
tion on the part of the audience and
this demonstration on the part oi tne
crrfionre it is assumed, would have
been annoying to President Roosevelt.
The latest news, theretore, tnai
President Wheeler was a guest at the
White, house for three days and is
now mentioned as the one likely to be

judgment for some months that we
should hold Just such a conference and

Let us all get togetaer and prepare
for the fight. Nothing will excuse
neglect of so important duty to man
kind. Party lines are badly broken up ia
this state, but the principles of the
people's party are accepted by a great
majority of the people as correct doc

curing any relief from either of the

in its weekly review of events cannot
omit the above tribute to one whoso
career has been so conspicuously able,
righteous and influential.
Mr. M. M. Johnson, the well-known
inventor of the Sure Hatch Incubator
and promoter of the Sure Hatch-Incu-bstor
Co., has sold his interest in the
company to his partners and will
build a new factory, for the manufac
ture of a new and improved incubator.
He has had remarkable success in the
past and it is believed that his new
move will prove equally successful.
