"Tho Lost Hope of the Republic"
is the name of a now populist paper
just started at Lincoln , by Bell &
Reynolds. From the initiative num
ber , wo infer it will bo straight pop ,
and against fusion.
The will of God should be supreme -
promo and as the majority of the
American people accept it as supreme -
promo , the sooner the anti imperial
ists learn that his decrees will
succeed , the bettor it will bo for
thorn and the country at largo.
Bryan and Gorman should take
Col. Bryan's statement that the
man who lights the trusts is as bravo
a man as climbed San Juan hill or
HWftin a river in the face of the
FiUipinof , is not a statement from
experience. The Col. did not have
bravery enough to go to Cuba with
his regiment , much less to have
climbed San Juan hill against Spain's
As wo need men of education and
practical knowledge for regents ,
wo would suggest to the republi
cans of the state that no bettor man
for the place can bo found than
Senator F. M. Currio. Ho positive *
ly declines to bo a candidate for
congress because ho cannot a fiord
to leave his business. The duties
of a regent would only bo a recrea
tion for him , and the work would
bo just in line with his inolinatiouH.
The Beacon recently gave a list

"It is haid for theo to kick
against the pricks , " was a doolara
tion made to Paul nearly 1000
yoara ago , when on his way to
Damascus with papora to prosecute
Christ's followers. It was hard be
cause he was diametrically opposing
the decrees of God. It was not
until Paul was stricken blind that
ho was made to comprehend that
he was in opposition to God. Jeff
Davis , president of the southern
confederacy , occupied a similar
position in the sixties , and not
until severe punishment was in
flicted , was ho able to realize the
inevitable , and learn that it was
hard to kick againet the pricks.
The God of battles had decreed the
result and the union was preserved ,
and the shackles wore stricken from
4,000,000 slaves , at a cost of four
years ot bloody war. The same
warning is applicable to the anti-
oxpansionists. The hand writing
of God was never more conspicuous
with MOBOH in his liberation of the
children of Inraol from the bondage
of Egypt , than it was in the dis
traction of the Spanish fleet in
Manila Bay on May 1st , 1898. Not
an American ship wan disabled nor a
man wounded. The surrender of
Manila and the Philippine Islands
on the lUth of August following by
the Spanish government wan another
victory for American arms , Rooond
only to the capture of Jorioho by
Joshua with the tooting for seven
successive days of rams' horns.
That the God of nations has a mis
sion for the United States in the
Jhilippino8 is very evident , and it is
only a mailer of lime when the
kickers who are of the demo-pop
persuasion will have learned , as did
the Egyptians and the secessionists ,
that their opposition to the occupa
tion of the Philippines by the
United States government , will result -
sult in their own destruction , The
opposition of the Fillipinos is
natural , for they cannot compre
hend what is for their best interests ,
but for the Fillipino , who is a free
born American , there is no excuse
us ho should bo able to read the
handwriting on the wall , and ought
to know bettor thin to oppoao the
plans of God.

The governor called the warrior

his braves would not roam the fields
of toil and pleasure in peace am

The governor did not say a word in
behalf of the homeless boys in th
schools ; ho did not suggest that the
action of the oftioors of the school

mouy for the good of the helpless
state wards who have lived in th
midst of strife and contention , tale
tattling and back-biting , vulgarity
and obscenity , and knock downs

years. Ho did not urge harmony
for these things , but the governor
dwelt long and feelingly on the fao

rim resolution pasncd by the Icgia-
laturo by unanimous vote , conveying
the tbankH of the stale of Nebraska
to the gallant Boldiors in the Hold
was as follows :
"I3o it roflolvod by the legislature
of the sCale of Mobraska :
That the thanks of the Btato be
hereby extoudod to the officers and
men of the First Nebraska rogiinont
United States volunteers , for tlnir
gallant oonduot on the iiold of battle ,
their courage in the presence of
danger , and their fortitude in the
hardships of camp and coiupaign.
Resolved , That we acknowledge
with gratitude and joy , the debt the
atato owes them by reason of the
honor conferred upon it by their
valor , with defending in the far off
Philippines , the principles of our
government nud adding now glory
to our flag. Wo pledge the honor of
the Btato that to the living shall bo
accorded , worthy distinction , and to
the dead , a fitting memorial of their
Resolved , That where all have
done so nobly , individual mention in
well nigh impossible , yet tlio fresh
jlood of gallant oflicers shed in the
defence of our country's honor can-
tot be passed without notice , and
, o the officers and men now suffer-
ng from severe wounds , HO tender
the sympathy of the entire state , and
respectfully request His Excellency
ho Governor , and all others in
nilitary authority , to promote each
of them in euoh degree as is coosis-
ont with military necessity.
Resolved , That these resolutions
) o transmitted to the commanding
offiicor of the first NebrasKa , with a
equost that they bo ropd at the
load of the regiment. "
On the first of April Governor
'oyntor , acting under the advice of
and orders of sonic political dema
gogues , vetoed this resolution
and sent to thn legislature a message
which was an insult to every Ne-
> raakan in the Philippines. The message
sago contained the following :
"Enlisting in a war for humanity
and in the oauso of human liberty ,
complications have arisen which
mvo compolhd thorn to engage in
a conflict against a people who
liavo boon battling against the op
position of another nation for near
ly 400 years. Such a conflict is not
"defending the principles of our
government and adding now glory
to our flag , " which has ever stood
as the glorious emblem of freedom.
I cannot stultify myself and the
calm judgment of the thinking
people of this commonwealth by
giving official approval to the state
ment that the war of conquest now
carried on in the far away Philip
pines is in defence of thoprinoiphs
of our government and is adding
uow glory to our flag.
\V. A. POYNTEU ,
When it was proposed to pass
the resolution over the veto of the
governor , every fusionist in the leg
islature was whipped into line and
voted to sustain the veto. In the
meantime the legislature had
realized that a wrong had been done
Col. Stosonburg earlier in the ses
sion , and had adopted a resolution
expunging the record of the con
demnatory resolutions that had
boon passed regarding the com
mander of the Nebraska troops.
This action and the passage of the
vote of thanks showed the patriot
ism of the legislature.
The governor refused to transmit
to the war department the news of
the act of justice to Slolsonburg ,
and said openly that he thought the
legislature had acted hastily in ex
punging the record and he proposed
to bo in no hurry. Ho had aekod
the war department to dismiss Stot-
sonburg from the command of the
First Nebraska , and he would take
his own good time in reversing the

ly leading a charge of the Nebraska
troops. The stain that had boon
plowed against his name in the rec
ords of the war department by
Governor Poviitor ( and which the
governor had refused to remove ) ,
had been wlpod out by the blood ol
a patriot and a soldier.
'ihon Poyntor attempted to pose
as a patroit , and wrote letters and
telegrams to the father of the dotu :
colonel. In those he reversed the
copperhead hogwash that had been
placed in the vote message of Apr )
1st. His telegran was as follows ;
Judge Stotsenburg , Now Albany
Ind. : In the hour of your bereavement
mont wo extend to you our heart

ded honor to Nebraska and dice

sions of sympathy. It is true that
wo have lost our first born , but it is
consolatory to know that ho died
for Nebraska and for the nation on
the field of battle , and as the leader
of as bravo and well disciplined an
American regiment as over marched
against an onomy. That ho wor'c. '
ed and toiled for the comfort and
welfare of the fighting First Ne

as a fond mother is of a beloved
child ; that ho aided in making
( through its hoiiosm and gallantry
on the battlefield ) the place to

the history of this war is written ,
and that ho freely and cheerfully
gave up his life for his country

anguish ol this severe bereavement.

Barry and the Hon. William L.

Very Respectfully yours ,

If the governor compared the
sentiments contained in this letter
with his own actions and the in
famous veto message , ho must have
been thoroughly ashamed. It is cer
tainly a matter of record that when
the people of Nebraska turned out
on Memorial day at Lincoln to do
ill possible honor to the remains of

was in some other part of the state.
