Uxder the Wilson bill, which Bryan
.voted for, there was imported free, in
1895, $23,99G,224 worth of wool, which
might have been raised here, thus giving
employment and wages to men who help
to make our home market the best in
the world.
Don't you begin to believe that Mark
Hanna pays the fare of the people that
are visiting Canton to see McKinley, as
some Bryan men are absurdly saying.
Mark may be a pretty wealthy man, and
disposed to expend a considerable sum
for the election of McKinley, but the
crowds to see the latter number too
many for even his generosity.
These is today $500,000,000 in money
waiting to hear from the election before
investment. There is not an observant
reader of current events who does not
know this to be true. With Bryan and
a free-silver congress those millions will
remain behind bolts and locks, and no
amount of railing against the rich will
bring them out Inter Ocean.
The Review of Reviews for November
pabUshee several important and inter
esting articles on the latest phases of the
Eastern Question, especially from the
British point of view. Mr. W.T. Stead's
survey of the subject, entitled "The
Eastern Ogre; or, St. George to the
Rescue," is extremely characteristic and
saggestive; the Review also offers a re
markable symposium of current thought
on "What should be done with Turkey"
as the pressing problem of the hour.
The Bryan campaigners axe still en
gaged in talking at great length, and, as
the Seward Blade says, "trying to prove
that free coinage of silver wonld make
the farmer's products bring him more
mosey and yet be cheaper for the wage
earner who had them to buy." The
fact is that foreign workmen are doing a
goodly share of the work that we are
paying for, to foreign laborers, who are
baying their eatables at their home
aaarkets. Protection is what we want,
with reciprocity.
How the friends of justice and good
government everywhere will rejoice
when the counting of the ballots shall
determine that Altgeld has been de

of Dliaois are greatly elated overa letter
from CoL W. R. Morrison denouncing
Governor Altgeld. Morrison is one of
the old-school democrats, an able man,
a strong leader, and thousands of dem
ocrats will be drawn from the support
of Altgeld by. kk letter. The sound
money democrats there are organized in
every district and they believe they have
-feud owt that a majority of the voters
have arrayed themselves against Alt
flclilism and Bryaaism. Chairman Wil-
liti of their state committee says:
"I do not hesitate to make the pradie
tiea new that Altgeld will be defeated

The Wilson act, the great law of four
years of administration by the party of
free trade and free silver is entitled to
the distinction of having closed more
workshops and factories and thrown
more people out of employment than
any other piece of legislation in the his
tory of the country. If Bryan is elected
the same condition will continue, only
it will be infinitely worse with free silver
added to free trade. In 1892, under the
McKinley bill, we had the most pros

McKinley as our next president and

The Wilson bill has increased imports
into this country which has necessitated
that much gold to be sent abroad in
payment. Just that amount of imports
measures the substitution of foreign
manufactures for American manufactur
ers. If continued, it will keep closed,
to that extent, American mines, furna
ces, mills, factories and workshops, and
render idle just as many .laborers as
kept them in operation. It is easy to
figure that what we need is protection
and reciprocity, which will be followed,
as always before, by good wages for
work. The republican party stands for
work, not charity; for wages, not soup

Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 24. At the be
ginning of the last week of the cam
paign the atmosphere of the state capi
tal has a decided tinge of republican
confidence in the outcome, and no re
publican connected with the manage
ment of the canva s has any reason to
change his estimate of a liberal re
publican majority for the entire ticket.
Populists axe basing some hopes on the
trip which their candidate will make
through the central part of the state
November 2, but there is every reason
to believe that republican sentiment is
so perfectly crystallized that it cannot
be shaken at any point by Mr. Bryan's
flying tour.
There are indications that the mana
gers of the demociatic-populistic cam
paign have little hope of carrying the
state for Bryan, and are preparing to
hedge and make a strong bid for sup
port for Holeomb during the last week
of the campaign. Already reports have
been received from a number of coun
ties stating that the popocrats aud dem
opops are offering to give McKinley
votes in exchange for Holeomb votes,
and while it is not probable that
many republicans are disposed to make
the exchange, it Is nevertheless not
amiss to caution them against such
trades. The state is good for a major
ity for the entire ticket, national and
state, and it will be wise for every re
publican to vote his ticket straight in
stead of considering trading proposi
tions. So far as Governor Holeomb is con
cerned, he has been running a campaign
strictly for himself for a couple of
months past, and has had campaigners
out working in his personal interest.
His leading card has been a misrepre
sentation of republican state officials
ajnd a glorification of himself. His rep
resentations in regard to state educa
tional funds have been referred to in
a previous letter, wherein it was shown
that the credit of the management and
investment of the permanent school
fund has been entirely due to the re
publican officials who comprise the
board, and of which the governor is
merely the presiding officer. So there
ia nothing in that.
Governor Holeomb and some of his
sneakers have been very industrious in
telling the voters of the state how he
has saved tw hundred thousand dollars
by his careful and economical adminis
tration of affairs. In the first place
there has been no such saving. The
appropriations of the last legislature
were pared down so that no such saving
could be effected, the -business of the
various departments and state institu
tions already being on an economical
basis when Holoomb came into office.
He does not, in fact, have the disposi
tion of any state funds except those ap
propriated for the maintenance of his
own office. He has the appointment of
heads of most of the state institutions,
but he has little to say as to how the
funds for these institutions shall
be expended. Supplies for the state
and all of the state institutions
are purchased by the board of purchase
and supplies, on competitive bids, and
rcwrmem are awarded to,the lowest bid
der. 'The conduct of the various insti
tutions ia. entirely in the hands of the
board of public lands and buildings. It
will be found upon the closest investi
gation that the interests of the state
have been carefully consulted by these
boards, and so far as Governor . Hoi
comb's voice and vote have gone, he has
beam equally considerate. There if. no in
timation to the contrary. But when
the governor takes to himself the
credit for an impossible saving, and re
flects upon his brother officials in the
name connection, it is as well that the
facta should be stated and generally un
derstood. afMbnan

State Sapermteudeut Corbet is
of the officiate who has been subjected to
attacks which auve no foandatkm im
truth, reason or justice. If the
charges made against him by a
few personal enemies ever required
I any refutation, it has been given post-
; tivsly and publicly long ago over the
signatures of men aud women of the
highest stauding in the state. Ammg
these are the former superintendent of
the Omaha public schools; Chancellor
Oanfield, formerly of the Nebraska
state university, and Hon. C. H. Mor
rill of the board of regents of the state
university. These have all shown
most positively that Mr. Corbett's course
has been above ail reasonable censure,
while bis administration of his impor
tant offioe has called forth the highest
praise from every intelligent source.
The people of Nebraska, who appreciate
him for the gentleman that he is and
for the splendid work that he has given
to the office of state superintend
ent of public instruction, will do him
justice at the polls aud the majority
that he will have will be a rebuke to
aianaer and a complete vindication ef
bis course as a man aud as an official.
Attorney General Churchill is an
other official who has been attacked by
willful misrepresentations. This attack
is led by the officers of the Farmers'
Mutual Insurance company, which was
refused a certificate to do business by
the state auditor upon the opinion of
the attorney general. The company
brought suit in the supreme court, by
mandamus, to compel the auditor to is
sue a certificate, but the writ was re
fused by the court. This is the extent
of Gen.Churchill's'hostility" to the mu
tual insurance law. He is not in position
to help or hinder these corporations, be
ing a mere interpreter of the law, sworn
to uphold it, and iu no sense its ex
ecutor. His general course has been one
of friendliness to mutual insurance, and
he has not at any time played into the
hands of the old-line companies. As
sertions to the contrary are utterly and
absolutely false, made with the inten
tion to deceive, and for the purpose of
wreaking personal revenges upon a
faithful and competent official.

It ought not to be necessary to cau
tion voters against the "eleventh-hour
roorback." But it will be remembered
that tb.6 campaign just closing will be
noted for the fakes aud forgeries that
have been put out by the democratic
managers and newspaper press, to be
reprinted and reiterated and circulated
long after their true character had been
exposed. Hence it is not too much to
expect that some new canard will be
sprung during the last few days before
election. Naturally this would be the
last card of the desperate managers of a
desperate campaign.
The fight is already won for the re
publican state and national ticket. It
only remains for republicans to be vigi
lant and keep up an aggressive canvass
until the close of election day, to make
the victory one that will be memorable
for generations to come.

The facts in regard to the controversy
between the two wings of the demo
cratic party in Nebraska have been gen
erally understood, and it is due to Sec
retary of State Piper that the pnblio
should be correctly informed. It started
in 1844 when the "gold bug" democrats
bolted the convention that nominated
Holoomb, the bolters nominating a state
ticket with P. D. Sturdevant for gov
ernor. Secretary Piper refused to put
the names upon the ballot except by
petition. A petition with five hundred
names was secured and the names were
placed upon the official ballot as "demo
crats by petition." This ticket in the
election of 1894 polled more than one
per cent of the vote of the state. This
gave the bolting wing of the democracy
standing as a party.
In 1895 the "gold bug" democrats
nominated T. J. Mahoney for supreme
judge. When his certificate of nomina
tion was filed three days remained in
which to file a protest against putting
his name on the official ballot. After
five days had elapsed a protest was filed.
Secretary Piper was then estopped by
law from considering the protest, but
desiring to be fair he agreed to stipulate
a test case to the supreme court, which
decided that Mahoney could appear on
the ballot as a democrat. As a matter
of fact he had polled two votes to every
one polled by the "silver" democrat for
the same office.
This year theeame "gold bug" organ
ization nominated a state tioket The
"silver" democrats protested. Secretary
Piper decided that the "gold bugs" had
the right to appear on the ballot as demo
crats. The "silver" democrats appealed
to the supreme court, which not only
sustained Secretary Piper in this one
particular, but also as to every other
decision. So it will be seen that those
who attempted to make political capital
against the secretary of state started out
too early. Indeed, it is a great feather in
the cap of Secretary Piper, whose care
ful and law-abiding methods have been
of great value to the state in many in

If any candidate on the republican
state ticket is elected, that one will be
State Superintendent Corbett, and it
will be largely because the people de
spise contemptible campaign methods,
especially when employed against an
efficient public officer.
A contemporary lately described a
certain court decision in Gage county
as reversing an important ruling of the
state superintendent on a point of
school law. On investigation we find
that the ruling in question was sus
tained instead of reversed, and in no
case has a single decision of that officer
been overruled by the courts during the
present administration.
We find that Mr. Corbett is very pop
ular among teachers and school officers
and they speak of his work as strong
and progressive. We believe the fool
ish charges against him have been
trumped up by a little clique of per
sonal enemies, and we regret that any
of the people's party papers should make
the political blunder of giving them
publicity. Thousands of populists who
believe in fair politics will rebuke snob
methods with their votes. The people's
party is making a strong but fair fight
for principle, and will not be betrayed
into indecent attacks by a desire to gain
spoils of office. Waverly Watchman
Henry R. Corbett's majority for state
superintendent will be a rebuke to
thorn who think Nebraska voters can be
fookd by spiteful slanders. He deserves
re-election upon his excellent adminis
tration, which has been one of the most
successful and progressive that
has ever known. Nebraska Slate

The Democratic state ceatral commit
tee of Nebraska has just pat in oircuhv
tion, at so late a day in the ""-rmign
that it was hoped the fraud would es
cape detection, a pamphlet printed in
the German language which reprints all
of the exploded forgeries and fakes of
the campaign. Utterances o Lincoln,
Grant, Garfield, Blaine, MoKmley, and
others, are garbled so as to misstate
their position. Then the old Financial
News forgery is trotted out again to do
service in a new dress, and the Bismarck
letter which was printed by the silver
pram under a forged translation, is put
out as new and original and genuine.
Although the pamphlet is issued by the
Democratic state central committee, the
evidence exists that the expense of
printing was borne by Gay Barton of
Omaha, a life-long Republican until
this year, and manager of the Omaha
smelters, owned by the Omaha and
Grant Smelting company, with smelters
at Denver and Omaha. Mr. Barton's
interest in the matter, and his unusual
generosity, are explained by a conversa
tion had with him by a close friend
since the campaign opeued. He was
asked if he had "gone crazy" on the sil
ver question. He replied that his com
pany owned nearly ono million ounces
- - - .
of silver; that if the pi ice of bullion ad
vanced under free coinage, the rim, in
value would be clear profit; that if it did
not advance, the company could pay its
employes in dollars costing but fifty-two
cents; and that, figured from this stand
point, he would be "in it" either way.
The Democratic state central commit
tee and "Silver Baron" Barton may be
good teachers for the Nebraska voters,'
with their fakes and forgeries and stale,
chestnuts, and they may be able to fool
a few of our German citizens, but the
great mam of them are too intelligent to
be caught in such manner. '

Nebraska has never had a more care
ful, prudent or conscientious secretary
of state than J. A. Piper, the present
incumbent of that office and candidate
for re-election. He is well equipped,
both by education and experience, for
the position, and the best proof of his
ability and good character is shown in
the fact that he was nominated for
county clerk of Harlan county four
times unanimously, and generally
elected. He has given the state an
economical administration. A part of
his economies was the saving to the
state in the publication of the constitu
tional amendments to be voted on at
the approaching election. Under the
law he could have printed the amend
ments so they wonld have cost about
$80,000, this, sum to be distributed
among Republican newspapers, but he
was prudent and careful in this as in
other matters, the result being that the
publication will cost the state about
one-half of that amount. Under his
pruning knife the incidental expenses
of the last legislature were about $9,000
less than they would have been by fol
lowing old precedents. As keeper of
the "great seal" and the records of the
state Mr. Piper has in every way proven
himself worthy of a great public trust.
A FarawA Political Speech.
Some Lancaster county farmers were
recently discussing the money question
and endeavoring to get at the cause of
low prices of farm products. Captain
Baird, himself an old farmer, listened
for a long time and then joined in, as fol
lows: "Boys, let's see if we can't get
at the facts right here among ourselves,
without calling in any evidence from
outside of Lancaster county. Let's
don't take anybody's word for anything
that we don't know by our own observa--'
tion. All of you remember that during
the three years of drouth, covered
wagons were moving out of the state,
and some of the men who owned land
began to be afraid that there wouldn't
be renters enough. Renters around
here thought there would plenty of
farms to rent and so they didn't hustle
for the leases. How did it turn out?".
It was remarked that land was scarcer
than ever and that some farmers in the
neighborhood hadn't been able to find a
foot of land to rent for this season. '
"Now what is the cause?" asked the
captain. "Here we have all seen such
a competition for land as we never sawf
before, and farming we all know isn't
profitable. Why? Since the election,
in 1892 hundreds of men in Lincoln:
have been thrown out of work. They
were busy before in building houses,!
making public improvements, working;
in factories and on the railroads. All
at once they find there is no more work
to do. They needn't go to other towns,'
for the same thing is true everywhere.'
They have to live, and so they have
been flexing around and renting farms
out from under you renters out here.'
Horses are cheap, and they have fitted
themselves out for farming, and here
they are. competing with yon for land
and selling grain instead of buying, as
they did when they were at work in
A hum of approval followed this tell
ing point. One of the farmers said:
"I have heard a lot of speeches about
silver and everything, but nobody ever
made the case so clear as Captain
Baird." Others agreed with him that
what the country needs is the opening
of the mills aud not the mints.
