f J "For one , I do not believe it possible -
sible to succeed upon a platform
, j I' that demands the unqualified free
. f coinage of silver at the ratio of 16
to 1 with gold. We have fought
the battle and it is lost. We can
it under circumstances
p never fight over
stances more favorable to ourselves.
If we hope to succeed , we must a-
bandou this extreme demand. "
Ex-Gov. Boies of Iowa in letter
to Col. D. M. Fox , of Des Moines.

Juht one-twelfth of McKinley's
administration has passed and in
that time Republicans have done
, more in the way of carrying out
the pledges of the platform
than was ever accomplished in
double that time by any previous
administration. When you consid
er that this has been done with a
Senate in which the Eepublicans
are in a minority you should cele
brate the close of the first four
months instead of grumbling be
cause the full four years' under
taking has not been completed.
The position of secretary to the
code commission has been tendered
Frank W. Collins of Lincoln by
President McKinley and the same
"will be accepted. The commission
"consists of Culbertson of Texas ,
Thompson of Ohio and Botkin of
Minnesota and their work will em
brace the codification and revision
of the criminal and penal laws of
the United States , with power to
, \ make recommendations to congress
for needed changes and additions
Mr. Collins well earned this rec
I ognition at the hands of the pres
ident. Senator Thurston wat
1 l helpful in securing the place.
"Protests" coming from foreign -
! eign nations relative to the tarifi
: ' , which we are about adopting art
not looked upon as a serious mattei
by our statesmen in Washington ,
A cold-blooded statistician whc
wanted tosee whether these nations
would really carry their threats ol
retaliation against our tariff has
found out that the fifteen nations
I " • " 'in question enjoy in their trade
, ' - - with the United States a balance
' . in their favor amounting to § 1-
750,000,000 in the past decade ,
a condition they are not likely to
disturb by adverse legislation even
if our new tariff is not framed es-
. pecially in their behalf.
I The editor of a paper published
5 : , at Grass Valley , Cal. , published a
: . strong- editorial the other day ad
vocating home industries , and received -
: ceived a flattering letter of thanks
written on a cheap letter head print-
J. ed in a neighboring city. There
* "would be much more enthusiasm
over the home industry business
* among the newspaper men of Ne
braska if so many of the men en
gaged in the crusade did not do the
bulk of their advertising on fences
and with circulars printed in other
states. When the movement is
made wholly mutual , the Nebraska -
- - ' raska publishers can be relied on
to a man to forward it as much as
j lies in their ower. Lincoln Jour-

All things consideredthen , , the
ariff has ceased to be a political
3sue. The majority of the people
lelieve or acquiesce in a protective
ariff , and most of those who do
ot are not interested in it at pres
ent , or likely soon to be. The
fight is on other lines. The tariff
which is now In conference will be
likely to remain on the statute
bo'oks for a long time if it produces
revenue enough for the government -
ment ; and if it does not produce
revenue enough , the modifications
will not be dictated by politics.
Protection is master of the field.

Never Grows Weary.
Colonel Mitchell never grows weary of
roasting the Populist county officials for
giving the county printing to The Trib
une , notwithstanding the officials only
discharged their duty in contracting with
the newspaper that gives the best service
at the lowest price. The iron has entered
• the Colonel's soul to suicidal depth.
The Colonel his self-ad
avers in patent , -
justable ethics , that a one-half cut is
within the pale of honor and self-right-
iousness , but a two-thirds cut is a disgrace
to the profession. The reader will ob
serve the delicate difference and will
appreciate the same fully when they
understand that the Colonel's bid was
one-half and The Tribune's one-third.
The Colonel refers to his Populist official
friends , "clothed with a little brief au
thority , as constantly anxious to show
their smartness by forcing publishers to
take work at a discount" . And get those
same smart fellows , make it possible for
Colonel Mitchell to buy a home out of
sheriffs sales profits and live on the fat
of land. Truly the Colonel is amusing
if not be taken seriously.
The Populists will hold their county
convention in Indianola , Wednesday ,
