HON. W. C. AMOS of Colorado will |
open the Republican campaign in Red
Willow county , next Thursday afternoon
at three o'clock , in McCook.
AMIDST the busy buzz of general pros
perity , it is difficult to hear the cry.o
calamit3' , notwithstanding the energeli
efforts being directed to that end.
W. J. BRYAN gives warning : "If there
is any one who believes the gold standn
ard is a good thing , or that it must br
maintained , I warn him not to cast hi
vote for me , because I promise him i
will not be maintained in this country
longer than I am able to get rid of it. '
FARMER MORLAN'S fame as a farmer
and fruit-raiser has become so generally
known over the Fifth district that even
Banker Shallenberger has discovered
himself to be a farmer. Some people
don't know the difference between farm
ing out county funds and deposits and
tickling the soil.
THB Chattanooga News thought it a
gave a new turn to an old joke when it ,
as a Democratic paper , admitted that
four months after the inauguration of
Bryan every national bank in the country
would close its doors. The next day it
explained that it meant the national Ci
banks would close their doors on the 4th 'e
of July. The Br3an organ is as badly [
mixed on this as it is on some of its en
financial statements. To begin with
national banks don't open their doors
on the 4th of July , and had it followed CO
the speeches of its presidential candidate ;
it would have learned that the 4th of sa ;
July is to be abolished.
I BELONG to neither party. I vote in wlmi
local and national elections as my inde mi
pendent judgment dictates. Nebraska ha
is prosperous. Four years ago the times th :
were very hard. Our farmers burned na
their corn for fuel. Then it was that bl
Mr. Bryan argued for free silver as the Tl
only remedy for those apparently hope to
less conditions. The country did not sh
take his remedy , and yet got well. ofa
What is the inference ? Mr. Bryan's
remedy was not as much of a remedy as
he thought it. Mr. McKinley will be
re-elected because of the prosperity now f "
existing. A very large percentage of the ou
citizens will pay no attention to free te
silver , imperialism or anything else than
our great prosperity. J. A. Smith ,
Humphrey , Neb. I PPa
THE demand for city and state war a
rants is one of the best signs of the i ,
times. When 4 per cent state warrants
bring a premium , and when 7 per cent
city warrants that run but a short time eij
bring 2 per cent premium , thinking people
ple conclude that money is more pleuti-
ful and that times are not to be com-
pared to the gloomy period from which
the country emerged shortly after the fO1 :
election of 1896. The organization of Clr
new savings banks and the seeking of a
small investments by wage earners in
dicate that the money power has for the | pr
time being relaxed its hold on the coun n
try's financial throat , and that it is possible - 361
sible to live and enjoy plenty while the br
country is administered by a wise aud siDe
capable government. Lincoln Journal. siU
THERE is one utterance of Lincoln's [
that Bryan is not likely to quote. It
was made in 1 63 , when the Democratic De
leaders protested against sending Val- s
landighaui across the federal lines to the
confederacy , and is as follows : "He who vb
dissuades one man from volunteering or mi
induces one soldier to desert , weakens ter
the cause as much as he who kills an
American soldier in battle. Must I shoot
a simple-minded soldier boy who deserts
while I must not touch a hair of a wily
agitator who induces him to desert ?
This is none the less injurious when effected
fected by getting father or mother or 01h
friend into a public meeting and there
working upon his feelings till he is persuaded - j s
suaded to write the soldier boy that he t
is fighting in a bad cause , for a wicked
administration of a contemptible gov-
eminent. I think that , in such a case , she
to silence the agitator and save the boy
is not only constitutional , but withal a
great mercy. " N. Y. Tribune. rNE
"O ! CONSISTENCY , THOU ART A JEWEL. "
It lends a touch of humor to this cam
paign to see the representatives from
these states which have been disfran
chising the negro engaged in a campaign
whose war-cry is the enormity of governing
without their con
erning ; subject-races
sent. If imperialism means government
without the consent of the governed ,
then imperialism exists in North Carolina
lina j , in South Carolina , in Mississippi ,
and in Louisiana. It would be absurd
to ' claim that the colored races of the
Philippines or of Porto Rico are any
more fit to govern themselves than the
negroes in these states. The proclaim
ing of the doctrines of human rights for
distant islands by such men as these is
little less than a farce , and it is hard to
see how any man from any state can de
claim for the Philippines while silent ou
these southern outrages , and maintain r
reputation for deep sincerity on th
question. N. Y. Advance , Sept. 6 , 1900
The above quotation from a religiou
paper is the more deserving of carefu
thought because it does not emanate
from any party organ , nor is it thrus
upon the attention as capital for anj
political .advantage. But when it is
remembered that the states above men
tioned are the states that are the strength
and capital of the Democratic party , i
may well cause every friend of justice
and right to pause and ask himself , how
can I identify myself with such a party
even though it have a Gabriel for its
presidential candidate. The make-up of
party that has a i6-to-i silver man for
its president aud a Gold Democrat for
its vice-president is thus clearly fore
shown , should its aims be realized and
its nominees elected. The simple truth
remains ; that the convention in Kansas
2ity , last Independence day , was a per
fect < transcript of the cave of Adullam ,
ist Samuel , xxil-2 , ) with this differ-
nce , that while the company convened
u Kansas City had its original in Adul- *
am , there was no David in that national
ouvention to assume its captaincy. "I

MR. BRYAN says he wants a republic
.vhere the coach-owner and the coach
man , the mistress and the maid , will
iiave the same chance and share alike in
he good things of this life , but unfortu-
lately he neglects to explain how this
blessed state is to be brought about.
Flie question is suggested that , in order
be consistent with such views , he
should arrange with Adlai in the event
their election to put their respective
salaries into a pool and share alike.
BY actual count fifty-four of that er
"army of commercial travelers thrown at
jut of employment by the trusts" at-
tended ; a drummers' "mass meeting" in
3t. Louis. It afterwards turned out that
seven of the whole number had lost their
positions by the reorganization of com
panies. Not a bad showing for a city of
city of 600,000 people in which perhaps
c.ooo drummers live. wire
MR. BRYAN should cede the sover-
jignty of his farm at Lincoln to Spain or n
rance. The land was acquired by the tic
Jnited States without the "consent of
he ( governed" by another Democrat ,
fhomas Jefferson. How Mr. Bryan can
onseut to live in Nebraska , when this
lircunistance is considered , is unexplain- ,
THE pessimistic predictions of the i20
irophet of calamity , so freely proclaimed
1896 , have been disproven by the ex-
eriences of the past two years. His rt-i
oresight was bad. This year his proph-
sies appeal to history for confirmation ,
the facts of history show that his
lindsight is no better than his foresight.
THE charge of militarism made by the
Jeniocratic candidate for the presidency
an insult to every American soldier For
erving under the flag. All soldiers , : he
vhether regulars , volunteers or in the
nilitia , are volunteers. They have en-
ered the service of their own free will
accord. None drafted.

Boone ( Iowa ) Daily News of re
cent date contains a full account of a
remarkable run made by the NorthWestern -
Western with a Shriners' train , Septem
ber 4th , from Omaha to DesMoines , a
distance of 203 miles , which was covered

Missouri Valley 2 minutes for orders ; at
Logan 4 minutes for No. i ; at Carroll 4
minutes for water ; at Boone 8 minutes
for passengers ; at Ames 7 minutes for
water and to turn the "Y. " Made four
railroad crossing stops. Had three dif
ferent slow orders and slowed up six dif
ferent times besides for bad track and
curves. Deducting a loss of two minutes
for each slow order , slow-up and railroad
crossing stop , would make 26 minutes ,
together with the time lost standing at
stations , 25 minutes , would make a tota
loss of 51 minutes , figuring nothing for
the time lost in stopping and starting ai
places where station stops were made
This would make the actual running
time from Omaha to DesMoines , a dis
tance of 203.3 miles , in 204 minutes ,
Train consisted of one baggage car , three
chair cars , one dining car and one pri
vate car. Total weight of train and
