Dictator Bryan has issued an ukase to
the oll'et't that no democrats are to be
chosen UH delegates to the next national
convention who are not in favor of the
Ohieago and Kansas City platforms in
every clause. Ho thereby indicates his
intention oi tying the free silver millstone -
stone about the neck of the party und
sinking it still deeper in oblivion. It
will bo impossible for the republicans to
boat the party ; much worse than has
boon done but they will probably see to
it that a few moro cartloads of votes are
dumped over theHoorpso , ifiMr. Bryan
is to continue an dictator.
Mr. Bryan wlll"pleaHo stop talking
against trusts inJNebraska or any other
farming state. $ . IIo says that farmers
can stand the encroachments of the
triiBtH bettor than the laboring men.
That when trustjprices become too high

own industry. This "acknowledgement

attacks of the trusts makes it appear

President Havomeyer of the sugar
trust says : "What wo want above all
things is free raw sugar , and wo are go
ing to got it. " Naturally ho will de
pend on the democratic frco traders to
get it for him , but ho is evidently count
ing his chickens without considering
that there are a number of beet sugar
factories in the country that have a
number of people in many communities
interested in their welfare , who will pro
ceed to put blocks in the wny of Mr.
Havomoyor's scheme. The farmer who
raises beets , the man who receives em
ployment in the beet field and the fac
tory , and the merchant benefited by the
increased trade made possible by the
greater money circulation , will make a
lighting force that President I lavomoyer
and his free trade friends will find fcomo
dilliculty to overcome.
The defeated candidate for president
says that if the laboring mou wcro
active on election day they would wi * ld
n force that would right the evils that
besot them. They have been quite
active on two recent election days ,
which Mr. Bryan may learn from the
election returns if ho has forgotten.
They registered their votes emphati
cally against commonweal armies and
free soup houses and it must bo ad
mitted that they were a power in restor
ing a season of business activity.with an
abundance of work at fair wages. Be-
; auso ho wasn't elected is no reason to
suppose that the working men were in
active on the contrary it is just the
reason that he was defeated. Mr.
Bryan's "trusts" are composed of very
few votes and some of them favored
him. Therefore it is a foregone con-
lusion that not a few laboring men and
farmers supported President McKinloy.
If a person employed a man and made
but 10 cents a day profit on his work it
would bo a losing business venture but
if ho could keep 1000 men employed at
the same profit per day ho would have
an income of $100 a day besides giving
wages to more men. This is the secret
of the wealth of a great many million
aires. They do not depend so much on
a largo business , and this is where the
trust gets in its work. It aims to cut
down expenses and may come a long
ways from doing a robbing business
with its patrons and still the income to
its promoters may bo very large. A
trust requires about as many men after
it is organized as the separate concern !
did before organization but there are
many expenses that may be reduced.
The buying and selling in largo quan
tities is ouo of their methods of profit
and this may bo done with injury to no
one. The trusts are not all bad and the
politician who endeavors to make them
appear so is more or less demagogic.
Farmers are ordinarily supposed to bo
honest and upright in their business
transactions , and popular notion has it
that they are the made to order victims
of the city chap with his gold brick
scheme and other flimilamp , However
this may bo at other places it is not so
in Omaha. There the tables arc re
versed , The former turns swindler ami
the city people are the gullible innocents.
According to Inspector of Weights and
MCHIItires Mahommitt of that city about
one-fifth of the baskets used by farmers
and peddlers are novcn-cighths baskets
made especially for the trade and the
council will probably make it a misdemeanor
meaner for any person to Bell from a
basket purporting to contain moro than
its real capacity. This is a noticeable
feature in other localities. "When a
person makes a dicker to purchase a
quart or a peck or a bushel of fruit , po
tatoes or other produce ho very seldom
gets what ho bargains for and it is not
altogether the fault of the farmer either
the popular demand for something
cheap is partially responsible The
person who first used the short measure
undoubtedly did so that he might bo
able to reduce the price a few cents
olow that of a competitor and it took
10 well that the standard of measure-
lout has finally been quite generally
educed. This is especially true in the
mall fruit lino. People will pass a good
ouest measure at a reasonable price and

Applicable to Norfolk or any other city

"If all the men who are putting up

then these contractors could provide
homes in Columbus for five men for

The United Verde mines , according
to the latest statistics , produced 22,000
tons of copper annually. They produce
moro now , for when these figures were
given out now smelters were building.
They have paid dividends as high as
13,5 per cent. They are estimated to
add $12,000,000 a year to Clark's private
fortuuo. The number of men employed
is not stated , but comparison of their
product with that of similar mines
shows that it is from 1,500 to 2,000. ,
Yet rather than diminish in the least
his enormous gains by granting an
eight-hour day their owner shuts them
down and coolly announces his inten
tion of making a desert of the town
where they are situated.
Hero is certainly an excellent oppor
tunity for Mr. Bryan to stand forth as
"tho champion of labor. " That Mr.
Bryan should fill at least a page of his
next Commoner with eloquent deuunci
atious of Clark as a "despot , " a "dicta
tor , " an "oppressor. " would seem abso
lutely certain. But there are times ,
contrary to the general belief , when
even Mr. Bryan can bo silent. This is
ouo of the times.
William Andrews Clark is not only
the owner of the United Verde mines ,
whoso peculiar methods of obtaining i
Montana seat in the United States senate
ate attracted world-wide attention. Ho
is also the person who footed the bills of
that famous "champagne night" at the
last democratic national convention and
contributed $2,10,000 toward the ex
peiises of Mr. Bryan's second attempt to
gain the presidency.

writer , broad-minded enough to recog

do that without injuring his party in

There is some uneasiness among the
big guns who have started out to kill off
the octopuses and tojget rid of the trusts ,
because the people don't get scared and
join in the howl says the Hastings Tri
buuo. The fact is , the people are not
sure but that the combinations of cap

seems they think these great industrial

Mr. Bryau has again expressed him
self as satisfied with his two recent do

have been done "honorably. " It is a
genuine shame tbat all dishonorable
actions should bo hogged by the repub
licans against the pure and spotless dem
ocratic party a party that would not
stoop to trickery even to save ite be
loved idol from defeat. If the republi
cans had wanted to do tilings right
honorably they would have given the
democrats a monopoly on dishonorable
practices and they would , of course ,
have virtuously ignored the advantage.

The republican central committee has
called the convention to nominate can
ilidates for county ofllces to be held at
Battle Creek on September 21. The
, vard and precinct voters should now
sec to it that their caucuses and primar
, os are called in ample time for the iir
formation of the voters so that there
may bo no excuse for non-attendance
and that the preliminary work may be
egally and thoroughly transacted. Too
frequently the work of the caucus and
primary are given scant attention and
the voters are then to blame if the con
volition proceedings are not satisfactory.
With a good , clean ticket the Madis
county republicans can put up a win-
ling fight this fall and the party
workers should see that the preltrni
