JOHN Q. STETTER , Propr.
< Starvation in New York.
j The New York newspapers are
publishing columns of frightful
j stories of great suffering among
the poor in that center of great
wealth and great poverty. There
; are several hundred thousand men
< idle in New York , and since they
have been out of work six months
or more , and- had practically noth
ing "laid up against a rainy day , "
the suffering is intense , particularly -
! ly among women and children.
The "hard times" are manifest
in one of the cruelest forms in the
public schools. It has become an
i every day occurance for children
to faint from hunger in several of
the large schools of the East Side
district. That cynical and arro
gant but brilliant organ of plulo-
! cracy , the New York Sun , publishes -
\ es an especially harrowing story
| of a mother being brought to
school by the truant officer to ex
plain the long absence of her lit -
t year-old daughter. The mother
\ carried a baby in her arms. She ,
and the baby , and the little girl ,
were all of them literally starving ,
and the mother fainted from slar-
. vation weakness while in the prin
cipal's room. It was but one , not
only of hundreds but of thousands
and even tens of thousands , of
Now they are organizing charit
able societies in New York to feed
the thousands of hungry school
children. One greathearted rest
aurant man Max Schwartz , may
his name be long remembered ! is
, himself feeding every day from
[ 500 to 1,000 of these innocent and
helpless victims of man's incom
petence , selfishness , and earless-
Conditions such as these will
ciuse many good men to lose the
respect and veneration they once
felt for that fossilized humbug ,
the protective tariff.
Men were willing to stand for
tariff robbery as long as they
thought it assured "steady work at
living wages. "
They were willing to see this
robbery making a few hundred
rich men enormously rich as long
as they thought it sured the per
manent prosperity of the entire
But now they sec it is all a lie ;
a cheap and sorry swindle.
They see two million men out of
work and the highest and most
oppressive tariff maintained by
any civilized country is on the
statute books !
They see that tariff in effect ,
and the party that made and
guaranteed it in power , and at the
same time the country is devastat
ed by one of the most disastrous
and senseless panics in its history !
The "sacred tariff" is sacred no
longer. It has been exposed for
the wicked cheat that it is. There
is poor consolation for the starving
school children in this , perhaps ,
but in the end there will bo less
hunger and poverty on account of
the exposure. For the tariff is
only one form of special privilege
that feeds the rich at the expense
of the poor. Lop off these privi-
eges , one by ono , and the poor
will have more for tli'-melves.

THE WAY TO WIN.
( From the Columbus Telegram. )
Mobs have sometimes defeated
a disciplined array , but not often.
Unorganized public sentiment in
behalf of a public cause has some
times been able to defeat organized
and disciplined opposition to that
cause , but not often. With this
statement of history The Tele
gram asks the friends of Mr.
Bryan to carefully read the fol
lowing article , which appeared in
a recent issue of the Omaha
For the most part the Omaha Bee. as the
organ and mouthpiece of the republican
organization of Nebraska , is right in making
this statement of political conditions :
Nebraska democratic organs are en
titled to all the solace they can get out
of the fact that the republicans are
already setting about the work of
completing and improving theirjparty
organization with a view to the com
ing presidential campaign. Organiza
tion counts in political battles , as in
militar- battles , and the superior or
ganization ot the republicans in Ne
braska as contrasted with that of the
democrats is to be credited in large
part for the steadily growing republi
can majorities. As long as the repub
licans keep as far ahead of the demo
crats in the matter of organization as
they are now there will be no question
about Nebraska's position in the re
It may be unpalatable , but it is the truth.
Republican victories in Nebraska ol late
years have been due to superior republican
organisation. In almost every campaign the
democrats have had the advantage so far as
regards the issues and the merits of the con
test. They won campaign after campaign-
on paper. And on election da } ' the republi
cans have won by virtue of their organiza
tion : an organization which the democrats
had practically nothing to oppose. Demo
cratic organization in Nebraska has been a
poor and sorry affair during these years , a
pretense rather that a reality , and so the
part- has been rather a mob than a well-led ,
It yet remains to be seen whether there is
to be a change this year. InC. M. Gruenther.

mittee and of the Bryan Volunteers. Nebras
ka democrats have an organizer of masterly
ability , who has skill , courage , experience ,
and a genius for taking inlinite pains. But
he and his associates can do nothing unless
they are given the support they must have

To the members of the democratic state
committee , to the membersof thedemocratic
county committees , to the members of the

ery city. ton and road district in the state ,
the World-Herald commends a soulful study
of the Bee's statement of the case. It is org -
g uiization that wins , and it takes a miracle
to win \\ithout it.
We testify to the truth of the
statement of facts made by the
editor of the Bee as to the value
of party organization , and we
commend the appeal of the World-
Herald for a better democratic
organization in this state. And
the friends of Mr. Bryan can have
that good organization which they
desire if they will get behind
Secretary Gruenther in his efforts
to gather the party workers into
an organized army for the approaching
preaching campaign. He does
not appeal for money. He wants
men men with the courage of
their convictions men who are
ready to give a dollar or a day's
work for the cause men who will
join the state organization of
Bryan Volunteers , or some local
Bryan club men who have
enough heart in the cause to make
some little offering of time or
talents men who will keep the
officers of the state committee and
the Bryan Volunteers posted every
day and hour as to the best loca
tions where work may be done
and votes made for Bryan. That's
what Secretary Gruenther wants ,
and that's what every democratic
paper in the state should urge in j
his behalf. All his heart , and all
his brain , and all his brawn he
freely gives to a cause and a
leader dear , and his masterly
organizing powers will win Ne-
i braska for Bryan if only the bc-
j lievers in Bryan and his princi
ples will do their part. Ke-
| member , you men who love
Bryan , that Secretary Gruenther
needs your help in the present
campaign , He wants men of good
heart to enlist in his army of de
votion to a righteous cause , prom-
i ising no pay to any soldier , save
' only that rich reward which will
j be the portion of every man who
' does a good part in the battle now
'to ' be fought between lovers of
liberty and simple justice on the
j one side , and the beneficiaries of
organized greed on the other.
j Are you with him ? Then join
' your home Bryan club today. If
, there is no such club in your city ,
village or township , then organize
jone instantly , Throw down the
I bars and admit men to membership -
! ship without any kind of fee or
dues. Those of you who can af
ford a small offering for state
committee expenses should pay
the small fee for membership in
the state organization of Bryan
Valunteers , and you should do it
today. Remember , you friends
of Bryan , that the corporate
enemy never sleeps. His hands
are strong , and his purse is full.
But you can smother that enemy
in Nebraska if you will get behind
Secretary Gruenther and push.
How can you help ? There are
many ways. You can help by
organizing Bryan clubs in every
voting district in the state. You
can help by personal appeal to
republicans whom you know to be
friendly to the principles which
Bryan champions. You can help
by keeping in touch with Secretary
Gruenther , answering all his
letters the day they are received.
You can help by aiding him in
making perfect the poll of the
state which he is now planning.
And , finally , if you truly believe
in Bryan and his cause you can
help by speaking a good word for
the man and the cause whenever
opportunity shall offer.

The humorists always associate the
African with the watermelon , assum
ing that the taste of the colored man
for his favorite dainty arises from his
life In the southern states , where the
melon vine grows like a weed.
As a fact , however , the African taste
for the watermelon Is hereditary. The
vine is a native of Africa , where It Is
found wild In the great central plains
of the continent and has also been cul
tivated for many ages.
In Egypt the melons grown along
the Nile rival those of southeastern
The melons mentioned by the Israel
ites as being among the good things
they had In Egypt wore undoubtedly
watermelons , for In the wall paintings
about the time of the exodus the melon
vine Is represented , and in one case a
long procession of slaves is depicted ,
each bearing on his shoulder a huge
dark green watermelon.
Botanists say that varieties of the
melon are found in southern Asia , and
some even claim , that the plant grows
wild in central and south Africa , but
Africa is no doubt the original homo of
the melon , and in his preference over
every other kind of vegetable or fruit
the African merely displays a taste
that 1ms become fixed in his race by
thousands of years of indulgence , for
in central Africa ripe watermelons are
to be had every month in the year.
