Will They Do It ?
Financial affairs were in much
better condition at the beginning
of the present week in New York ,
than they have been during several
weeks past. The full crest of the
panic wave has apparently gone
by , and with the receipt of large
consignments of gold from Eu
rope , the stringency "on change"
has been greatly relaxed.
In Nebraska , bankers , farmers
and merchants as a rule are taking
the situation calmly and accepting
the conditions imposed upon us by
our eastern friends , philosophical
ly. While it is true that in one
sense Nebraska and the west in
general , is independently rich ,
still the monetary system of this
nation makes us dance when Wall
street whistles. That this mone
tary system is unfair and unjust
goes without saying and its one
sided attributes were pointed out
as long ago as 1896 by Bryan and
have been fully exposed at differ
ent times since.
In spite of the fact of theN per
nicious nature of this monetary
system , the people of the United
States have been led about by the
nose , with Wall street doing the
leading. Whether this embryo
panic will cause. them to awake is
rather doubtful , but in Nebraska ,
at least , we think the people'are
beginning to sense the fact that
we need representatives in the
halls of congress. We need those
who will look after the interests
of the farmer not only in aiding
him in the scientific pursuit and
success of his work , but also in the
safe-guarding of the money that
lie saves from his arduous toil. In
this , the merchants and bankers of
the state will also be protected , as
in an agricultural community ,
such as ours , the farmer is the one
who makes the wealth.
We do not mean by this that
Messrs. Pollard. Burkett , et al. ,
an reorganize the financial laws
of _ the / ' country , but as units , or
leaders of a solid phalanx of rep
resentatives and senators from the
western and southern states , they
ould aid in assisting in driving
through congress monetary laws
poscssing justice to the people of
the union instead of the money-
mad and select coterie of Wall
treet and the speculative world.
At the coming session of con
gress the. question of reforming
the currency system of the union
will certainly be brought up , and
the eyes of the populace of the
western states will be on the men
in congress wbo .are presumed to
represent the rights and desires of
their constituents. Will they
again legislate for Wall street or
the ones "at home" who trusted
and honored them by election ?
Keep your eye on them. Nemaha
When Congress Meets.
There will be no lack of busi
ness for congress when the next
session opens. Of course the first
drive will be made by the New
York bankers to get an asset cur
rency. The bankers in law will
come in for attention , and if it is
remodeled , it will be for the furth
er profit of the Wall street banks.
They drew the present law and all
its amendments and if there is to
any change'they propose to make
it to suit themselves. No one has
ever successfully interfered with
their plans. In fact we have been
told for years by the moguls of the
party in power that these men arc
the only ones who know anything
about money or its functions , and
the whole matter must be left to
them t fix up as they please. No
one will doubt , if they fix it up ,
that it will be done solely with
an eye to profits.
Another matter that will come

up , ' and that is the Philippines.
Secretary Taft's visit will tend to
bring that subject to the front.
On that question the republican
party will not be so solid as it
usually is when the Wall street
bankers want something. A
good many of the bankers them
selves7 are tired of the Philippines
because there is no mone . in the
proposition. Wall street does not
long continue its interest in any
thing when it comes to the con
clusion there is no money in it.
Aguinaldo , after his long sil-
enc.e , has spoken once more and
be"may become a prominent figure
again in the near future. The only
thing that Wall street has so far
proposed is to sell the 6 millions
of people in the islands , as it were ,
at public auction. We bought
them for 20 millions and might
make something on the price at
public auction , if offered to the
lighest bidder among the nations.
That is a true Wall street idea. It
might have the ring of money in
it. At any rate , there is bound to
je a lively time when congress
meets. Nemaha County Herald.
