This morning after preparations
had been made for the removal of
the negro soldiers to Fort Reno ,
Okla. , a cipher message was received
by Major Penrose directing him to
hold the three companies here
pending the arrival of General Bell ,
chief of staff to make a thorough in

some perturbation. Tonight there
JUDGE SKIUS' SPEECH
( Continued from last week. )
1'STAND BY ROOSEVELT. "
As has already been pointed out ,
the coming battle cry of the re
publican party is to be "Stand by
Roosevelt. " But how in the name
of common sense is this to be done
when Roosevelt won't stand. I
suppose that when we point out to
the voters of Nebraska this fall
that the republicans two years ago
were .pledged to give us relief from
railroad extortion and that on that
issue they elected every state sena
tor and all but nine representatives ,
and then ask why they did not car
ry out their pledges , they will
answer , "Stand by Roosevelt. "
When we ask them why they
did not pass a commodity freight
bill demanded by the people , and
promised by their leaders , they
will answer , ' 'Stand by Reese
velt. " When we ask them why
they didn't enact an anti-pass law ,
and why , when in full power in
every branch of our state govern
ment , Che assessed value of rail
roads under the new revenue law
was increased from 50 to 80 per
cent only , while the assessed value
of lands was increase" I from 100 tc
160 per cent , they will avoid the
issue by responding , "Stand by
Roosevelt. " And when we point
out , for instance in Butler county ,
where I reside , that farmers were
compelled to pay over thirty thous
and dollars increased taxes on their
land , while the Burlington and
Union Pacific railraods were ac
tually assessed several hundred
dollars less than than the year be
fore and only tendered a part ol
this , will the farmers look pleasant
while they sins the old refrain ,
1'Stand by Roosevelt. " Of all the
hypocritical , nonsensical , cheap ,
absurd , hollow , campaign phrases ,
ever sought to be perpetrated as a
fraud upon an intelligent , longsuffering -
suffering : , tax-ridden people ,
"Stand by Roosevelt" tops them
all. The facts are that the only
party in the country which has
stood by Roosevelt , when he stood
for anything worth while , is the
democratic party. And the very
minute that Roosevelt left such
men as Till man and Bailey and
took his stand with Aid rich and
Foraker , the American people re
fused to stand by Roosevelt , and
his popularity began to wane.
My friends , the people * of this
country have their eyes open and
the republican party will be com
pelled to fight the next campaign
upon real issues instead of glitter
ing generalities and deceptive cam
THE TARIFF A STEAL.
The republican party has not
advocated or defended a single
great principle since the close of
the rebellion , but for half a century
now has been vigilant and persist-
.ent in fastening upon this republic
a despotism more hateful , crimi
nal and merciless than any slavoc-
racy ever" dreamed of by the
south. It began its career of
crime by stealing thn presidency
in 11875 from that patriotic son of
democracy , Samuel J. Tilden , and
continued it by buying the presi
dency in 1896 , and using therefor
the funds befonging to widows and
orphans to consummate the bar
gain , and Cortelyou has "never
put it back. " Under its leader
ship the mother of trusts has been
nourished , fondled and protected
until she has absorbed the earnings
pf a nation , and this pilfering pol
icy that every day robs your pock
ets and mine , this theft made pos
sible by republican legislation
whereby competition from abroad
is" throttled and illegal millions ac
cumulated by the beneficiaries of
special laws , this system that en-
is a lu.-e.val of the precautions
talen Io see that none of the blacks
enter town. It has been determined
to ask for a special term of court to
sit in the cases. World-Herald.
The people are much incensed at
the report made to the war depart
ment regarding the trouble with the
negro troops stationed at Fort
Brown and have , appealed to Sena
tors Culberson and Bailey , suggesting - ,
ing that the president appoint a
board of inquiry. In the message they
take exception to the trouble being
termed "engagement and battle with
citizens , " by Major Penrose iu his
The message declares that the dis
turbance was an "assault at the
dead of night by soldiers , without a
hostile act on the part of the pee
ple. " Nebraska State Journal.
the Armenian butcher , the
. murderer of the Jews , to purchase
| our American made goods at 25 to
50 per cent less than demanded
and forced upon the American tax
payer is today the most cherished
doctrine of the republican party.
And , gentlemen , the big stick has
never yet been raised to destroy or
check this great wrong. The re
publican leaders are strong enough
even to make the strenuous Teddy
stand pat on the tariff steal.
The attorney general of this
state , the gentleman who would
like a reseaved seat in our winter
resort for millionaires , the United
States senate , this gentleman , who
is anti-Union Pacific
anti-Burlington , -
cific but pro-Northwestern and
p r o-Ny e-Schneider-Grain-Trust
Co. , said in his platform adopted
in his home country by his ap-
jplauding constituents , "The tariff
question is settled. " In effect he
1 said he was content to oppose a
little trust just hatched out .for
popularity's sake , but would pro
tect and defend with all his might ,
the mother of trusts. He thun
dered , his phillipics against the
of the railroads
non-payment taxes by
roads of this state , but has done
nothing to enforce the maximum
freight rate law placed on the sta
tutes of Nebraska by a democratic
and populist Jegislature , and has
never pretended to enforce the
criminal laws against trust officials.
The people of Nebraska are not
going to be buffaloed by Buster
Brown of Buffalo this fall , and
neither are they going to take
water on any single issue before
the people of this state , not even
Diluted Rose water.
NO REFORM IX REPUBLICANS.
Gentlemen , I have heard it inti
mated that the republican conven
tion which meets in this city the
23rd may name a radical candidate
for governor , and that , therefore ,
it behooves us if we wish to win to
nominate a conservative. In the
first place do you believe the re-
Nebraska will nominate a genuine ,
radical candidate for governor , or
for any other high office ? This
will happen when the railroads of
this state go out of politics , when
Burns and McKesson are "defeated
for the legislature , when satan
espouses the cause ; of Christianity.
'Tis an idle dream/ But even if it
were true , -can' the democratic
party of Nebraska -which-has-giv
en to the nation and' world' ajBtfy-
an , afford to compromise the party
of this state for the hope of- ' the
offices ? You cannot make /the
democratic party of Nebraska an
ally of the railroads , or an
oppresson of the people. The at
tempt has always resulted in fail
ure. A few leaders , captains ,
lieutenants , or even editors may
temporize for policyvs sake * but the
great rank and file of the dem
ocratic party is in deadly earnest
and will never follow you , never.
If the democratic and populist
parties of this state succeed in con
verting the rank and file of the re
publican party and induce it to
throw off the yoke of corporation
rule , is that any reason why we
should wear the cast-off badge of
corruption ? Because they become
virtuous , shall we abandon right
Let us not be lulled to sleep by
the siren's song of conservatism.
If they mean by conservatism a
preservation of all that is good ,
opposition to anarchy and lawless
ness , then we are conservative.
But if they mean by conservatism
any part of the ustand pat" doc
trine , if they mean cessation of
hostilities against the thieves who
are plundering the pockets of the
poor by unjust laws 'and illegal
practices , if they mean-the same
old f roight and passenger rates in
Nebraska , and non-payment of
taxes by the railroads , then sir ,
we are not conservative. If
prosecuting and sending to the
penitentiary violators of the law ,
whether millionaire or pauper ,
whether employer or laborer , is
radicalism ; if the extermination of
graft and the pass system is
radicalism , then sir , let us nominate
a radical of the radicals.
APPEAL TO NON-PARTISAN VOTFRS.
The independent non-partisan
voter has the center of the stage
today , and will decide the next
election in this state and nation.
Partisan clap-trap will not effect
him. Mere pretensions will not
convince him. Insincere platforms
and spineless candidates will not
appeal to him. If we are to secure
and deserve the intelligent , in
dependent votes , we must nominate
sincere men upon sincere plat
forms. And if we do this , Neb
raska will be in the democratic
column when the votes are counted
in November. I believe this con
vention will adopt a platform so
sharp and decisive that no railroad
tool can straddle it and be comfort
able ; that we will write into that
platform a demand for lower
freight and passenger rates , a just
assessment of railroad property ,
and the strict enforcement of anti
trust laws ; and we will place upon
that platform candidates whose
loyalty to true democratic princi
ples , is unquestioned and whose
hearts throb in sympathy with the
eternal principles of right and
justice , and with this platform and
and these candidates , we expect to
elect a governor and United States
senator who owe no allegiance to
the enemies of the people and who
will command the support and
endorsement of every honest tax
payer in this great state.
All hail the day when the people
of this state and nation shall once
more take the reins of government
in their own hands , shall own and
control their great highways of
commerce and transportation , and
shall drive from place and power
every trust defender , every wrong
doer , every stand patter , be he
democrat or republican , who has
been growing fatter and fatter at
the expense of the toiling masses
of this country. In that day the
hours of labor will be shorter ,
compensation greater , transpor
tation cheaper , and the American
consumer of American products
placed on an equal footing with the
-foreign consumer of American
products. In that day , W. J.
Bryan , or some such as he , will be
president of the United States and
this government will once more
emphasize and protect the rights
of man , instead of submitting to
the wrongs of the dollar.
Slate Fair Neiva.
The citizens of Lincoln are expect
ing a large crowd during fair week ,
Sept , 3 to 7 , and the Commerical
Club will open Information bureaus ,
one down town and one at the Fail-
Grounds , where a list of 1,000
rooms will bft at their disposal.
No one need to stay at home on
account of accommodations. There
will be a grand reception to WJ. .

The Beatrice Creamery Company
are arranging for another fine ex
hibit at the coming State Fair , Sept.
3rd to 7fcb , having employed the
famous butter sculptor , Mr. John
K. Daniels , of St. Paul , Minnesota ,
whose excellent work at the St.
Louis World's Fair was admired by
thousands. Is is n "cinch" that
every lady interested in butter mak
ing , and its possibilities as a
material for moulding , will see this
exhibit in the Dairy Building.
The races at thu State Fair , the
first week in September , are well
filled and will be hotly contested.
There are several features which
will be new , some of which are a
Derby in which a goodly number of
the best running horses of the state
are alreayd entered. A guideless
pacer , named "Emma , " from Evansville -
ville , Indiana , will go twice , as also
will 'another guideless pacer , "Dr.
Tom" of Tecumseh , and a guideless
trotter , "Surena , " of St. Edward.
These last two will be the con
testants in a guideless race , which
is something new in the racing line.
Morphy , the man who sings to beat
the band , will sing before the grand
stand each afternoon.
