SOUBOIUITION i'ltlOK :
One Year , In adrance 91.00
THURSDAY , APRIL 20th , 1000
Senator Thurston does not find
his path BO fully atrown with rosco
as ho had hoped on arriving homo.
It in hard for the public to become
roconoiled to ono "serving two
masters , "
The independence manifested by
the delegates in the republican con
voution Saturday was an indication1
that it was not dominated by a ring.
Wo hope the same spirit may preVail -
Vail in the state convention.
The nomination of J. 0. Porter
for county attorney by the ropubli-
onn convention Saturday was with
out Mr. Porter's solicitation or
knowledge , and as the choice was
made by acclamation the will ol
the majority was plainly evident.
The high school free attendance
law has again boon declared un
constitutional by the supreme court.
State Superintendent Jackson ox-
prasseB the opinion that before a
free attendance law can bo estab
lished the constitution will have to
With the nomination of oapable
and popular mou at the state con
vention next week tie republican
party will have a lair chance of
winning the state back into tuo re
publican fold. All ringstora and
professional politicians should bo
ihunued. With a oloan and able
ticket wo can expect a clear victory.
The pop papers report that Edi
tor Vincent ou hia trip through the
county to raise funds for the fall
campaign , scoured two hundred
subscribers to the fund , less than
ouo in ton of the pop voters. Wo
should have thought that with the
amount pledged to Coin Ilarvoy
last fall and with all the state ofli-
cors but ono to draw from , and
their appointees , besides more than
half of the county oQicors , all ol
whom are paid out of the public
fund , the campaign committee
could have raised sufficient funds
for legitimate pt.rposes , without
calling upon the farmers , who receive -
coivo no financial benefit from the
But a short time ago the pop
papers wore complaining because
of the raise m price on wire and
nails. Now the manufacturers have
made a reduction and have wired
their salesmen to reduce the price
00 cents per 100 pounds ou all
smooth plain wire , nnd $1.00 per
100 pounds on all sizes of galvan
ized barb wire , fence staples and
wire nails. In Monday's issue the
WorlchHorald was lamenting that
the jobbers would have to reduce
their prices to correspond , on the
Block on hand , because the trusts
bad reduced the price. It eooma
hard to ploaao a iusionist , try over
BO ho.nl. When prices are low they
complain , and when high they are
not satisfied. When wo had peace
they wanted war , and when wo had
war they wanted poaco. It is what
wo have not they want , and what
wo have they do not want. Thin IB
Debs , Donnelly , Dewey and Bry
an ! It is too bad to spoil the fine
illitoration of candidates with Bry
an. Why not put it Debs , Don
nelly , Dewey Defunct !
By the tirao the four cornered
of "bull " is the
game pen" over pops
will think there are moro than 8- ,
000,000 of people in the * United
States needing protection and at
The pop who used to swear that
an old party oant bo reformed has
taken a very sure moans to prove
this statement wlion ho triad to re
form Democracy. It dent look ns
though the pops were making a
fair test of the mat tor.
The heavy weight odllor on the
corner did not like our article on
'fusion imperialism , " under the
caption "contemptible" a ootiplo of
wooka ugo. Wo should bo very
sorry to say or do Anything to
arouse the latent possibilities of
Hiid ; olmmpion of the toilerB.
Wo cant see much use in the face
of conventions ca led at Sioux
Falls. Since all they have to do in
to oudoruo the denoonxtio nominees.
Wo suggest that the expense of
that convention bo saved and turn
ed into a fund to help the 8,000,000
poor American citi/.ena mentioned
in the Chiof.
YCH , the oracles declared that the
gold standard would make avcry
dollar a two hundred cent and
they called upon the farmer to bo
their witnesses. How is it Mr.
farmer ? Dent your labor and pro
ducts now measure or buy anymore
moro gold ntandatd dollars than it
did under democracy ? It lookn as
though the prophotios of Baal has
It is strange that every man is
apt to sco just what special evil in
the public which is the most
dominant passion or tendency in
himself. Bryan sees nothing so
wicked as "imperialism" and yet
there is no ono today in this country
who shows such n passion for imper
ialistic authority. Rule or ruin
seems to bo his idea in conventions.
The four cornered parao of re
form being played just now re
minds us of the old four cornered
game ot "bull pon" or "soak'em. "
The corners are held by nil the re
form parlies except the poor pops ,
and they are in the pen to bo soaked.
The mid-roadors will have plenty
occasions to apply arnica to polit -
ical bruises before the fall olooltou
is over. Funny , isn't it !
The Chief thinks , or rather some
one expressed such a thought throuh
its columns , thai wo should bo look
ing aflor the 8,000,000 poor down
trodden nrgroos of the south in
stead of meddling with 11,000,000
Filippuios. Wall , yes that eoundri
well , but why don't your brother
democrats of the south and north
lake Homo stopH in that direction ?
Try a reform plank of this kind in
the Kansas City convention and HOO
how lively you'll go OAOT the Iran
The inoannHt thing a man can do
now-a dayh ! H to attach himself to
"eternal principle" longer than ono
year. A man that has not faith
enough to buliovu that Bryan IH
Creator than "eternal principle"
can't succeed in rofor/n. It IB im
possible to win by sticking to
"principle" and mistruBl Bryan.
The way to roforin is to denounce
everything but Bryan and growl.
The "constitution following the
flag" and "Hotting the Philippine
islands oil independent" is the
most ii congruous rot over uttered.
Everybody ought to know that
when the constitution applies to
any domain it is then impossible
for the president or congress to
dispose of that domain. Congress
can't alienate organized country ,
and when the constitution is ap
plied to a country it is organized.
Still faotB have nothing to do when
people want to howl.
When the democrats were abus
ing Governor Waits of Coloiado
for enforcing his populist principles
the pop papers shod copious torus
'or ' the governor. Now the same
papcru are joined with democracy
in abusing the ex-governor because
ho won't fuse with democracy. It
begins to look as though the real
brains of the populist party will not
ally with democracy. In fact it
jegins to look as though the brains
of democracy would revolt against
"usion. Wo don't wonder that
eastern uemoaiaoy IOOKH with alarm
upon this reform baby Bryan is
trying to raise on the bottle.
Any honest , sober thinking per
son can see that the laboring voters
are not in sympathy with Bryan.
The fact that Debs is in the race
ror president nhows too clearly that
Bryan represents nothing but him
self. Uo haH managed to destroy
llio populist party and ruined the
future of democinuy for years to
uomo. Uo is in harmony with real
organization , and is tolerated by
democracy just because it would
almost destroy the party to destroy
Brjaunow. The future organiza
tioiiH which will control the politi
cal field will look upon Bryan as
the most disastrous humbug that
over claimed to bo a reformer.
It appears that Senator Allen in
to act as wet nurse for Bryan in
getting tlm fusion pops all recon
oiled to democracy. Allen is a
HUcotRB in this business , and his
good offices in withholding Bryan's
refusal to accept thu pop nomina
lion four years ngo insures Bryan
that Alien can bo trusted. This is
funny fusion ; strange that thoHu
patriotic pop ? , who a few years ago
were willing to die for "eternal
principle" are now seeking a medi
ator to be oven allowed to endorse
a democrat. Who wants to remain
in a party that wantH such a fusion ,
that requires thin most disgraceful

Have some real patriot talk of real
reform. The people who follow
this rot called reform now are so
accustomed to look for trouble that
they have become misanthropes.
