Omaha , Sept. 3. Slowly yet surely
public sentiment iu Nebraska is crys
tallizing against Bryanlsm. x-Hnrd
times and low prices under Democrat
ic rule are so firmly impressed 011 the
memory of the voters that the attempt
of Bryan to divert attention , through
the instrumentality of vulnerable and
fallacious doctrines , has fallen Hat.
The people of Nebraska are too in
telligent' and too discerning to be de
ceived by the mocking-birds of Democ
racy on the question of "militarism"
and "Imperialism , " and they have only
to take their pencil and paper and do
a little quiet figuring to determine
what Republican victory really means
The following figures will show the
real difference between applied Demo
cratic and Republican principles , the
first column showing the prices under
Democratic rule in 189(5 , and the second
end the prices prevailing now under
Republican rule :
Wheat 44c 62c
Corn 12c 2Sc
Rye 20c 3Gc
Oats 8c 17c
Hogs ? 2.50 $4.50
Labor $1.00 § 1.75
Horses $25.00 $05.00
Cattle ( fat ) $3.834.85
Cattle ( feeders ) $3.10 $4.15
Sheep 90c $2.15
This means that the Nebraska farm
er tilling 1(50 acres of land , and that
Is not considered a large farm in Ne
braska , will receive at least $800 more
for the same amount of stock and
grain in 1900 than he received in 189G.
There are thousands of IGO-acre
farms and thousands of farmers in Ne
braska , so it can be seen at once that
this Increase in prices in the aggregate
amounts to a large sum.
These figures are unanswerable.
They deal staggering blows to Democ
racy and they at the same time attest
the wisdom and reveal the substantial
benefits of Republicanism. It can be
seen by this that Republican prosper
ity has in four years increased the
value of every cow , steer , sheep , horse ,
and every bushel of grain in Nebraska
more than 30 per cent. It has in
creased the value of every acre of farm
land , and , aside from household effects ,
lias in many instances doubled the
value of all the personal property on
The Republicans in Nebraska pin
their faith to this record. They are
willing to stand on it , confident in the
intelligence and judgment of all the
Under such conditions is it possible
that Bryan and the Democratic cam
paign orators can mislead the people
into deposing the Republican party and
voting the Democracy back into pow
er ? Is it possible that the voters of
Nebraska can , by the seductive and al
luring strains of the political siren ,
be duped into voting for Bryan and a
return of the depression and distress
of four years ago ? A vote for Bryan
means that and nothing else. Nor is
this any more true of Nebraska than
of the rest of the agricultural states.
The report of the bureau of statistics
of the agricultural department just is
sued shows to what extent the farm
ers have profited in the last four years
on live stock values alone. Here are
the figures :
.Tan. 1,1S96 .Tan. 1,1900
Horses $500,140,180 $003,909,412
Mules $103,204,457 $111,117,092
Milch cows. . $363,955,545 $514,812,100
Other cattle.$508,928,410 $ GS9,4SG,2GO
Sheep $05,107,735 $122,005,913
Total . . . $1,541,390,339 $2,042,840,813
This shows a net increase in values
a clear and clean profit to the farm
ers and stock owners of $501,444,474.
Adding to this the increase in the
value of swine and farm cereals , which
is even a greater amount , and it is
found that the entire gain amounts to
the enormous sum of more than $1,000-
Have a Right to Know.
The people of Nebraska have a right
to demand of Governor Foynter an
vxplanation of his conduct in connec
tion with the management of the va
rious state institutions.
They have a right to an explanation
as to why he has permitted officials to
transgress the law without even so
much as a public protest or reprimand.
Within the last few weeks reports of
official corruption have been published
charges upon which prompt inquiry
Ehould be made yet Governor Poynter
ias refused to act , and has made no
apparent effort to stop these abuses.
The gravest charges have not even
commanded official attention , yet these
charges are of such a nature as to beef
of the utmost importance to tax pay
ers , involving as they do a reckless
dissipation of the public funds. With
wholesale pilfering going on in mauy
of the state institutions it is no wonder
that a large deficiency , conservatively
estimated at $100.000 , is staring the
Poynter administration and the people
of Nebraska iu the face.
For this , and fo'r demoralizing the
management of the public institutions
by the appointment of political adher
ents Irrespective of fitness , Governor
Poynter will be held to answer.
Proper management of public institu
tions is not a partisan question. All
political parties profess to favor It.
What shall be said or done with a
party or official who proves recreant
to this trust ? That is the problem be
fore the voters of Nebraska , and that
is the charge upon which Governor
Poynter and his party must stand
trial in the high court of public opln
ion. Economy in the administration
of public affairs Is a matter of dollani
and cents to every tax payer , and the
fact that , with general appropriations
approximating more than $2,000,000 ,
there Is an apparent shortage of $100-
000 , of itself proves that Governor
Poynter has not practiced it.
Other Oillelals Extravagant.
Governor Poynter Is not the only fu
sion official who has fallen short of
party promises and public expecta
tions. The names of State Treasurer
Meserve , Attorney General Smyth and
Land Commissioner Wolf may also be
It is no secret that a portion at least
of the state school funds has been
farmed out to favorite patrons. There ;
Is at least $200,000 of school funds
upon which the state is receiving no
interest and which Is no doubt depos
ited with such concerns as are
"friendly" to the administration. Dili-
gout inquiry has thus far failed to din-
close where this money is , or why the
state Is not drawing interest on it.
This alone represents a clean loss to
the state of $4,000 per year.
In regard to the attorney general's
department , the records show that
that department has not alone been ex
travagant , but has made excessive de
mands on the treasury.
The constitution expressly provides
that the attorney general shall rcccivo
a salary of $2,000 a year and no more.
It declares further , that nothing shall
be allowed that department for depu
ties or clerk hire. The records show
how openly this has been disregarded.
The following figures show to what
extent the treasury has been milked
during the present term of two years :
Attorney general $4,000
W. D. Oldhani 3GOO
Assistant attorney 2,400
Printing briefs 800
Postage , telegraph , telephonc.etc. 900
Traveling expenses GOO
Though this is a much larger amount
than was ever before required by the
attorney general's department , it ,
even , was not sufficient. The records
show that the $5,000 "prosecution
fund" placed at the disposal of the
governor has been attacked and of
this amount nearly $4,000 has been
used , a portion of it as follows :
C. .T. Smyth $017.93
W. D. Oldham 55.20
Ed P. Smith 025.0' )
G. F. Corcoran 237.SO
Other allowances have been made in
addition to this , so that upon the whole
this department under the present ad
ministration has been the most extrav
agant and expensive in the state's his
More or less odium is attached to the
land commissioner's department. The
manner in which building contracts
have been awarded and executed al
most approaches a public scandal.
Certain contractors have been award
ed contracts and have signally failed
to properly fulfill thorn , yet after hav
ing failed at one place the board has
turned right around and awarded
them contracts at another. In some
instances the bondsmen of the con
tractors have been required to com
plete the work and in each and all in
stances the state has sustained pecu
Contracts for groceries and provisions
are now largely awarded to Lincoln
parties , attending which action is cir
cumstantial evidence of rank favorit
ism. These contracts have been ma
nipulated in the interest of the friends
of the state house ring at Lincoln , and
against the interest of the business
men of the towns in which the institu
tions are located. Commissioner Wolf
and Governor Poyntor are directly re
sponsible for this , as the former is
chairman of the board of public lands
nnd buildings and the latter chairman
of the state board of purchase and sup
plies , boards that have direct charge
of these matters.
Tt may be claimed by the state hoii o
officials , in justification of their acts ,
that the state te gettinar its groceries
and supplies cheaper on this account.
Nothing could bo farther from the
truth. In the first place , the way
business is managed , prices become a
secondary issue. The principal is ue
now is that of weight and quality.
There is scarcely an institution that
has a weighing scale , and there is
scarcely an official at any of the in
stitutions competent to judge as to
