"White Man Turned Yellow
Great consternation was felt by the friends
of M. A. Hogarty of Lexington , Ky. , when
they saw he was turning yellow. His skin
slowly changed color , also his eyes , and
he suffered terribly. His malady was yellow
jaundice. He was treated by the best doctors ,
but without benefit. Then he was advised to
try Electric Bitters , the wonderful stomach
and liver remedy , and he writes : "After tak
ing two bottles I was wholly cured. " A trial
proves its matchless merit for all stomach , liv
er and kidney troubles. Only 5oc. Sold by
McConnell & Berry , druggists.

After many intricate experiments , scientists
have discovered methods for obtaining all the
natural digestants. These have been com
bined in the proportion found in the human
body and united with substances that build
up the digestive organs , making a compound
called Kodol Dyspepsia Cure. It digests
what youjeat and allows all dyspeptics to eat
plenty of nourishing food while the stomach
troubles are being radically cured by the me
dicinal agents it contains. It is pleasant to
take and will give quick relief. D. W. Loar.

OMAHA , July 23. It is definitely
settled that Theodore Roosevelt will
pay Nebraska a visit during the
pending campaign. This statement
is made on the authority of Chair
man Lindsay of the state central com
mittee , who says that Governor Roosevelt
velt will devote at least a week to the
campaign in Nebraska. It will be a
great treat to the people of Nebraska
to see , not only the uexc vice president
of the United States , but one of the
foremost scholars and statesmen of the
nation a man of high di.stinguisb.meut
in civil and military life. The exact
time Governor Roosevelt will be here
has not , as yet , been determined.
The list of speakers for the campaign
will contain among others the names of
many noted statesmen and orators , the
object being to so present the evidence
that the verdict rendered in the high
court of public opinion shall be based on
an intelligent understanding. It never
has been , and is not now , the desire of
the Republican party to acquire public
stewardship by false pretenses. More
than once the Republican party has re
sisted supposedly popular vagaries in
the face of a popular demand for their
adoption , because it was confident that
it was right and that the vagaries were
not alone wrong , but fraught with
great public danger.
It is the party that struck the chains
of slavery from the black man when
more than half of the nation opposed it.
It is the party that disciplined a dis
obedient and rebellious confederacy and
established forever the unity of the re
public while all the world looked on in
It is the party that for 40 years has
maintained an industrial policy which
distinguishes American labor from that
of all the rest of the world , and which
has elevated it to a standard uuequaled
in the history of civilized nations. For1
40 years the Republican party has stood
guard at the doorway of labor , repuls
ing again and again the attacks of
Democratic free trade. Defeated in
their repeated efforts to bring American
labor to a level with the pauper labor
of Europe , the fusiouists have
adopted a new scheme and that is to
lure labor away from its safe moorings
through alluring promises contingent
upon a change in the monetary system.
It isn't free trade now , though the
fusionists are just as much for free
trade now as they ever were , it is free
silver. One is fraught with as much
distress to the American people as the
other. Neither can be adopted with
out being attended by inconceivable
disaster. The Republican party believes
in a free people , free homes and free
government it does not believe in free
trade or free silver.
The Republican party believes in ex
pansion. It believes in extending the
benefits of free citizenship and self-
government to every possible clime. It
believes in progress in commercial and
territorial expansion , to the end that all
may be benefited and the world in gen
eral brought under the benign influence
of Christianity and intelligence.
The history of the United States is a
history of expansion expansion in ter
ritory , as well as in trade , art , science ,
and literature. Expansion upon any
pf etext was until recently opposed by
the fusiouists. They charged that the
Republicans were imperialistic when
they declared in favor of territorial ex
pansion. They have , in a degree , since
changed their orthodoxy. The Demo
cratic national convention at Kansas
City which handled the expansion
question with such passive delicacy was
iield in territory acquired by expansion.
The site of Kansas City is part of the
Louisiana purchase , Nebraska , the
liome of W. J. Bryan , the Democratic
candidate for president , was Spanish
territory when Jefferson was made
president. Nearly 300 members of the
Kansas City convention came from ter
ritory acquired through expansion.
More than 40 of the delegates came from
territory annexed in consequence of the
\var with Mexico. Minnesota , Mon
tana , Missouri , Nebraska , Arkansas ,
Iowa , Kansas , Louisiana , North and
South Dakota , Oklahoma , Wyoming ,
and part of Colorado , had 180 votes in
the convention , and expansion re
claimed this territory from Spanish
dominion less than 100 years ago. It
would appear that the only kind of ex
pansion which seems to soar to the apex
of fusion estimation and expectancy is
pulmonary expansion. Give them this ,
coupled with uncircumscribed loquao
ity , free from the moral restraint of
ethical jurisprudence , and in the fusion
way of looking at it , the problem of ex
pansion is solved. Forced by public
opiniou , however , and by the logic of ,
the situation to acknowledge the wis
dom of the Republican policy of expan
sion , the fusionists are now for expan
sion conditioned-on a most incougru-
ent contingency. In other words , they
favor a policy 'of ' expansion that would
not expand and would benefit all the
other great nations of the earth at the
expense of the United States.
The Philippine islands have been
added to the territory of the United
States as a leprcy of conquest. Thosi
islands had for two buudred years beei
nnder the sovereignty of Spain and fo
all of that time had felt and experience
all the iniquities of monarchical rule
When the hand of President McKinloj
was raised against Spanish atrocities it
Cuba and the Philippines , it was no
for the purpose of acquiring new pos
sessions in the Orient. Naval and mill
tary strategy alone directed mo'tremen
toward the Philippines , and. thosf
waters were invaded with no othei
object iii view than the destruction 01
capture of the Spanish squadron. Noi
tmtil the treaty of Paris was euterec
into did the United States undertake tc
exercise control over the Philippines
This treaty passed sovereignty ovei
these islands from Spain to the United
States , and it is a forcible reminder tt
Bryan and those fusiouists who arc
finding'fault with the McKinley ad
ministration for attempting to restore
law and order in the Philippines , thai
this very obligation , this very duty , it
the result of Senator Allen's vote and
the personal efforts of W. J. Bryan tc
have the treaty ratified. Without
Senator Allen's vote and without the
personal efforts of W. J. Bryan the
treaty could not and would not have
been ratified , and the Philippine isl
ands would not have passed to the
sovereignty of the United States
After being largely responsible for the
acquisition of the Philippines , Bryan
and the fusionists have adopted a plat
form of repudiation and they hold up
their hands in abject horror at the
spectacle of an honest , commandable
and patriotic effort on the part of the
president to suppress domestic lawless
ness and rapine in the islands Like
the copper-heads of 18G1 they are cas
tigating the McKiuley administration
for exacting obedience to the well es
tablished rules and ethics of popular
government and at the same time are
encouraging insurrection by seditious
utterances secreted in expressions of
sympathy for a people bearing arms
against the United States.
It is a prerequisite to popular govern
ment that the governing power shall it
self be capable of self government. So
soon as the Filipinos shall demonstrate
their ability to maintain a government
analogous to a republic just so soon will
the Republican party through its au
thorized representatives encourage that
Of Commercliil Importance.
The importance of the United States
retaining the Philippines , from a com
mercial standpoint , is not to be dis
counted. It is an important link in the
policy of commercial expansion. Par
ticularly is this true when considered
in connection with American trade in
China. It is only recently , and it is
due to the wise statesmanship of Mc
Kinley , that American products have
Found their way to China in any mater
ial quantity. The "open door" policy
recently promulgated opens up to the
farmers and producers of the United
States a market , the consuming capa
city of which challenges computation.
China has an area of more than one-
; welfth of the globe and a population
variously estimated at between 300,000-
300 and 450,000.000. Her export and
import trade reaches enormous propor-
; ious and it will require time and en-
argy alone for the United States to de
velop an enormous trade in that
country and with these people. It is a
mild assertion to state that China alone
: an consume every bushel of surplus
rarm products in the United States.
The farmers of Nebraska , as well as the
'arrners of other agricultural states ,
should , therefore , in considering the
jolicy of this government toward the
Philippines consider the importance of
i commercial footing in China , an es-
: eutial of which is control of the islands.
Phis is not imperialism , but commer-
: ialism ; is not militarism , but far-reach-
ng , far-seeing , intrinsic statesman-
Important as are the national issues
) f scarcely less importance to the people
) f Nebraska are the state issues. It is
10 secret that under the Poynter ad-
ninistration widespread corruption has
jeeu practiced , to say nothing of the
jvil effect of ignorance and incompe-
Out of the many state institutions
; here is scarcely one whose manage-
neut is not contaminated and tainted
jy fraud , corruption and spoliation.
Che state has been swindled out of
; housauds of dollars , and that , too , by
: he representatives of the very party
; hat promised the people of Nebraska
in honest and economical admiuistra-
; iou of public affairs. Not only have
state institutions been made asylums
for broken down politicians , but the
public funds have been exposed to their
apacity with the result , that while the
26th general assembly or session of the
legislature appropiated the enormous
sum of § 2,591,373 for public purposes ,
there will be a large deficiency at the
2nd o'f the current year. Nearly every
institution has already exhausted the
amount appropriated for it and there
ire yet six mouths of the time unex -
pired. In some of the institutions
laborers have not been paid for several
months and they will have to wait until
the legislature meets and passes an ap
propriation before they can draw
iheir pay. There is scarcely an insti
tution , in fact , there is not one , but at
the end of the present year will not
tiave a sadly depleted exchequer.
What is equally as bad as raiding the
treasury is ignorance and incompe-
teucy in managing the public institu
tions. Evidence of this evil is abundant.
Scarcely an institution has escaped.
All have been used to reward party
satellites regardless of qualification or
fitness. Poyuter has gone farther in
making the public patronage a legal
ender for the payment of personal ob
ligation than any other governor has
Jared to go. Positions requiring skill
md knowledge of particular branches
have been given to party favorites ir
respective of their ability to fill them.
