Indications That It Will Give
Its Vote to McKinley.
Public Sentiment Steadily
Aljuso of Executive Authority.
Omaha , Sept. 10.-At a pace that
evinces deliberation and sober thought
Nebraska is making Its way toward
the Republican column.
It Is no idle assertion to say that at
this very time Nebraska is a doubtful
state , with sentiment steadily chang
ing In favor of the Republicans , in that
degree as to justify the assertion that
it will give its electoral vote to McKin
ley.The effort of the fusion campaign
managers to stem the tide by trying
to meet the logic of events with bug
aboos and vagaries is falling far short
of accomplishing its purpose.
In the first place , the people of Ne
braska are too intelligent to be duped
in any such way. They know that the
cry of "imperialism" and "militarism"
Is only a scheme to divert attention
from the real issues. They know that
It is intended for no other purp eettem
to keep them from thinking of the ter
rible distress of four years ago , and
from comparing the philosophy and
prophecy of the "boy orator" in 189(5 ,
as to what terrible things would hap
pen if McKinley was elected , with
what really has happened. Knowing
this , the people are turning their backs
upon bugaboos and are giving prob
lems associated with their domestic uf-
fairs careful consideration.
The people are asking themselves
what guarantee have they , if Bryan is
elected , that the terrible industrial
and commercial distress of four years
ago will not return ?
They are asking themselves why
they should desert a wise leader and
sound policy a policy that has brought
good prices for all farm products , that
has closed the free soup house and
opened the factories to ten million la
boring people for an unwise leader
and an unsound policy that , every time
it has been tested and applied , has
precipitated a financial and industrial
crisis , has stilled the hand of labor
and extinguished the fires in nearly
They are asking themselves why
they should reject that which has been
proven to be for their best interest
for that which history proves to bo
weighted down with Injury and dan
There was a time when many of the
people of Nebraska permitted others
to think for them. They were too bu > y
with their o/n personal affairs , or too
confiding , to devote attention to polit
ical problems. For that reason many
honestly believed in the vagaries of
Bryan in 1S96. They accepted what
he said as gospel truth without stop
ping to consider for a moment.
It is different today. They have
learned to the contrary in the school of
experience. They have been taught to
think for themselves , and , in doinqj
this , they have discovered to what ex
tent their confidence has been imposed
upon. They have discovered that not
one of Bryan's predictions of 1S96 has
come true. That he was wrong in
each and every instance. He told
them McKinley's election would visit
upon the country inconceivable disas
ter. He told them that just so sure as
McKinley was elected this country
would be visited by such suffering and
distress as it had never before known.
Results have demonstrated that this ,
to say the least , was a vicious and
shameful Imposition on public credul
NOTHING TO GAIN.
The people of Nebraska know by
this time fiat they have nothing to
gain by voting for the Bryan electoral
ticket. They know full well that es
tablished policies of government are in
such close sympathy with industrial
conditions that they cannot be dis
turbed without causing unrest , and
they know further , that to substitute
policies that are a tax on enterprise
and energy for policies that are stimu
lative means to do that which sober
reason holds to be inimical to the pub
It is vastly more important to the
voters of Nebraska that there shall bo
good markets and good prices for farn
products , that labor shall be employe- ! ,
that the money of the nation shall be
free from spurious contamination aiid
shall be the very best , that money may
be had at a low rate of interest as a
stimulant of industry and as a relKf
to the debtor , than that the Philip
pines shall be turned over to Aguin-
aldo's tribal government.
Concerned as all patriotic Americans
are in the proper solution of the Phil
ippine problem , the first and foremost
thing to be considered is the welfare
of the American people at home , espe
cially since the McKinley administra
tion has demonstrated its ability ami
intention to adjudicate the Philippine
question along that line most consist
ent with American customs and tra
There is no danger , as regards the
Philippines. That problem will b < *
properly solved. The sreat danger that
confronts the American people is free
trade , spurious money and consequent
low prices , idle labor and hard times.
ON A JUNKET.
Attorney General Smyth is off on an
other "trust-smashing" expedition.
Why he had to put the state of Ne
braska to the expense of a junket to
New York with no possible objective
point , other than to achieve partisan
notoriety , is a question difficult of so
lution. Thus far he has accomplished
nothing , nor Is he likely to , but o the
other hand has added a few more fig
ures to the enormous amount ex
pended by his department In one way
and another the last two years. No
other attorney general ever made more
grand stand plays for political effect
and no other was ever less successful.
No attorney general ever gave the people
ple such small returns on the money
expended. From first to last it has
been a play to the galleries , with the
result that much money has been ex
pended and very little if anything ac
complished. If Attorney General
Smyth really intended to drive trusts
into exile he would hardly indulge in
the profitless practice of chasing phan
toms about the country when he has
any amount of material to work on
right within the limits of his home
community. It may be enjoyable sport
for him , but it is rather expensive sport
to the tax payers , who Avill have to
go down into their pockets and pay the
Reports from the various towns and
cities throughout Nebraska , bearing
on the financial condition of the people
ple , go to indicate that there has been
a substantial increase in the earnings
and savings of the people the last four
years. Of the many reports received
not one shows a decrease in the
amount of money deposited. All show
a substantial increase. Four years ago
money was a scarce article and the
borrower , even on the best collateral ,
found it difficult to negotiate a loan.
Today money is abundant , and , what
is more significant , much of the money
being loaned out , is , not the money of
eastern capitalists as formerly , but
money deposited by and belonging to
the people of Nebraska. More than
$30,000,000 is money belonging to people
ple of Nebraska. Nearly 50 per cent
of the mortgages held against Nebras
ka collateral is held by Nebraska pee
ple. In the last four years the people
of Nebraska have increased their
bank deposits by more than $30,000,000 ,
while the amount that has gone into
new homes , new farms , new enter
prises and new industries , is fully
twice as large. The prosperity of the
business man , of the farmer and of the
laborer , is abundantly attested by
INVADED THE ASYLUM.
Since it has been discovered tha < -
the editor of the Des Moines Globe , a
paper frou which the fusion organs
have been gathering campaign mate
rial as a result of its incendiary utter
ances on imperialism , was formerly an
inmate of an asylum for the insane ,
the fusion editors have with a display
of reluctance deserted him , and they
now find themselves subjected to the
humiliation of having quoted as au
thority the irrational , irrelevant and
insane opinions of an insane mind.
The Omaha World-Herald , Avhich
has devoted column after column of
space to the reproduction of the edi
torials of this poor unfortunate , after
having learned that he was at one
time an inmate of an asylum for the
insane , and after knowing that his
mental faculties have not as yet re
covered their equilibrium , still persirts
in palming off his spurious opinions
upon its readers. Other fusion papers
have discovered their mistake and quit
it. The AVoiId-Herald alone still keeps
at it , presumably because it had given
up more space to the reproduction of
his articles and was therefore all the
more sadly taken in. Its readers , how
ever , will hardly fail to hold it to ac
count , even though partisan , for per
sisting in filling its columns with the
distorted conceptions of a disordered
brain. It is , no doubt the concensus of
opinion that the fusion editors are
abundantly able to distort facts , even
to that extent as to reflect insanity ,
without going into partnership with a
person admittedly insane.
It is safe to assume , though having
discovered that the author of these ar
ticles which they have been palming
off on their readers is irresponsible by
reason of a disordered mentality , not
one of the fusion editors will have the
manhood to apologize to the public or
to acknowledge the mistake.
In attempting by this ruse to fore
shadow the policy of the Republican
party the Fusion editors are less con
siderate thsm humanity generally , for
it is a Aveil established principle of
ethical jurisprudence that no ono of
unsound mind shall be held accounta
ble for his words or deeds. In this in
stance , however , not alone do they af
fect to hold the lunatic accountable ,
but they persist in holding the Repub
lican party accountable along with
him. It is a flagrant imposition upon
the public , nothing moro.
A VULNERABLE PRACTICE.
The custom or practice which per
mits officials to sell public property
and not moke a proper accounting of
the funds to the treasurer and auditor
is a vulnerable one at best. Surround
ed by every safeguard possible it nev
ertheless affords an opportunity for
the dishonest and designing official to
rob the taxpayers.
In the reports that have been pub
lished from time to time , concerning
the management of the state institu
tions the last two years , evidence of
this character stands out prominently.
In more than one instance it has been
discovered that property has been sold
and the money misappropriated. Sotno
of Governor Poynter's appointees have
not been slow to make use of this op
portunity to replenish their exchequer.
Just to what extent this practice has
been carried is not as yet fully known ,
though there is evidence that much
money has been diverted from the
proper channel in thisway.
This custom or practice has been in
vogue for some time , yet it is a most
expensive one to the taxpayers.
