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 enu financial statements. To begin with national banks don't open their doors on the 4th of July , and had it followed CO COP 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 Pa 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- Tli 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 ei 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 md nn 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 ? nil This is none the less injurious when effected : 01 fected by getting father or mother or 01h : he 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 , ind 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 Dennison Street COMMUNICATED. "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 c'tl 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 tiai 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- * n am , there was no David in that national ouvention to assume its captaincy. "I peak as to wise men ; judge ye what I ay , " FRANK. 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. D 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 ro 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 (11 lircunistance is considered , is unexplain- , lble' ga 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 Se oresight was bad. This year his proph- pu sies appeal to history for confirmation , CO the facts of history show that his lindsight is no better than his foresight.
