Hon. J. It. Webster of JLlaeoIa Make tae
Complaint on the Grooad that It U
thetNofaoOld Party aae
Silver Rtpablicaaa bot aa
OfTahOot of the Party.
A 8iu!t!!ran FHea 1'rotest.
John K. Webster of Lincoln filed a
protest last week njrjinst the use of
tlie partv name ".Mlver republican"' ou
tlie official ballot. The protest was
filed with .ScTetary of ?tat 1'orter
VJio will ii. a date for a heariu after
he has consultud the attorney-general
in relation to a method of procedure.
The protest is filed by Mr. Webster as
an elector. He objects to the use of
the name "silver republican"' because
it is the adoption of an old party name;
because it is calculated to confuse
voters, and because the party attempt
ing to use it is but a faction of the re
publican partv and by the statutes of
the state is prohibited from usinj? the
name 'republican. The protest in
full follows:
"Whereas. A political party desig
nating' itself as the "silver republican
party' has filed a certificate of its nom
inations by its said convention in the
office of the secretary of state, certify
ing that said party did at said conven
tion nominate John J. Sullivan for the
office of judge of the .supreme court for
the state of Nebraska, and George V.
Ivenower and K. von Forrell for the
office of regents of the university of
Nebraska, now . therefore, I. Joseph K.
Webster, an elector and member of
the republican party, and a resident
and citizen of I.iucolu. Lancaster
county, Nebraska, hereby protest and
objeei against the ust of the term 're
publican by said party and hereby
protest and object to the use of the
term 'silver republican party' as a
party name, and protest and object
against designating the nominations
of said party on the ticket as '.silver
republicans and protest and object
against the placing on said ticket of
the words 'silver republicans and pro
test and object to the secretary of
state certifying to the several county
clerks of the state of Nebraska said
nominations under the name and style
of 'silver republican."
'Said Joseph K. Webster objects to
the use and designation of the name
'silver republican on the said ticket
for tlie reasons:
"First: That it is the adoption anfi
use of an old party name, to wit, 'the
republican party' which party is known
as a national political organization,
which has leen in existence for more
than forty years and which is a party
organization in the state of Nebraska,
and throughout the 1'nited States and
has a place in history under the name
of the 'republican "party." That tlie
use of the name 'silver republican on
the said ticket over tlie said nomina
tions is calculated to mislead and con
fute the voters and electors of the
state and is in violation of the letter,
snirit and intent of the statute.
-Second: That said Joseph ft. Web
ster further objecting and protesting
says that the "republican part3- of the
state of Nebraska met in convention
on the 'JCth day of August. ISftT. and
adopted a party emblem and made
nominations for the said offices and a
certificate of the party device and
emblem, ami of the said nominations
made by the said republican party of
the state of Nebraska at said conven
tion have been duly filed by the prop
er officers with the secretary of state
of Nebraska, and no objection to the
same ha- been tiled and the said party
name and emblem of the republican
parly" are entitled to a place, and will
be plaeed upon the ticket by the sec
re:r; of state.
'Third: Said Joseph 1. Webster
protests and objects for the further
reason that the said party styling
itself as 'silver republican" is but a
faction and off-shoot of the said
'republican party and by the statutes
of Nebraska is prohibited from using
or adopting the old party name 'repub
lican of which the said 'silver repub
lican" is a faction and off-shoot, the
member and organization of which
arc not in accord with the principles
of and do not and did not "at the late
general national or state election sup
port the platform of principles adopt
ed by the 'republican party or support
tlie nominees thereof, but opposed and
endeavored to defeat the same, and
aided their adversaries in so doing.
Mexican PrU-e for "tVlient.
Detroit Journal: Misfortunes never
come singly. Mr. ilryan has hardly
had time to tloundcr through an ex
planatioti of the simultaneous rise of
wheat and fall of silver when another
perplexing situation has arisen to an
noy him. When the Nebraskan was
making his memorable campaign for
cheap money last fall, it will be re
niemlit.'11'il that one of his stock argu
ments was the assertion that the low
prices of farm products was directly
traceable to the gold standard. I'aseil
upon inK assertion, he drew the con
clusion that the free coinage of silver,
by largely increasing the amount of
iuone in circulation, would effect a
corresponding increase in whatever
tlie farmer had to sell. In proof of
this contention he was accustomed to
point to Mexico, as tangible evidence
of the value of cheap money to the pro
ducing elasMjs.
It may be unkind of the Mexicans to
strike a man when he is down, but the
facts appear to indicate that they have
dealt the boy orator a body blow when
he was hardly in condition to receive
such a shock. Jn a dispatch from the
City of Mexico yesterday, it is said
that wheat is selling in some parts of
the republic at prices equal to .(' or 00
cents in gold. American farmers who
arc receiving from Ji. cents to SI a
bushel for their wheat will nrobablv
find it difficult to reconcile .Bryan's
flimsy argument with the cold facts.
Wild (iueKSwork of Fopoeratu
Kansas City Star: There seems to
be a serious disagreement among the
silver men as to what the price of
wheat ought to be. IMand savs.
"under a good government wheat
would be worth Sl.7. instead of a dol
lar." Kx-Congrcssman Towne savs
wheat ought to be selling for S2.50.
and Altgeld declares that 51.50 would
be the pi ice if this country had free
silver coinage. They merely" made an
oit-hand guess, whereas there is some
loirie underlvinjr TYm-ne" Hmi.
With silver and gold at the present !
commercial ratio dollar wheat, meas
ured by the gold standard, is equiva
lent to S-'.SO in free coinage dollars,
and that is the price, plus freight
charges and import duty, for whieft
wheat sells today in Mexico. So the
logical slogan for Mr. Itryan's follow
ers today is "free silver and S2.50
Th Fused Triplets
Chicago Inter Ocean: The demo
cratic party in Nebraska hardly knows
whether it is standing on its head or
on its feet. It is triplets, and there is
much noise in the land.
Globe. Democrat: A change OTf 7.000
Totes in Nebraska will pive the state
to the republicans. There should be
mot-e than that number of voters wh
are tired of exploded fallacies.
Buffalo Express: As Mr. Brvan is
preparing to make the fight in Ne
braska this year on tlie silver issue, his
challenge should be accepted bv the
republicans and the best oratorical tal
ent of the party in the countrv should
be employed to beat him on Lis own
ground. Two months of hard cam
paigning would probably end forever
tbe career of the late national candi
date in Nebraska.
New York Mail and Express: The
republican party, supported by the
sound money democrats, should be
able to defeat this combination of -?-ocratic
forces in Nebraska. Busi. as
conditions and political events have
discredited the issue upon which Mr.
Bryan carried the state last fall and
his fight this year is inspired not by
any vital public 'question, but by a des
perate realization that his defeat now
will render him an impossible candi
date for the presidency in 11)00.
Springfield (Mass.) Republican: The
Nebraska populist convention adopted
one resolution expressing thankfulness
to Providence "rather than to any
man for the measure of prosperity
with which our state has been blessed,
and we attribute the rise iu wheat to
foreign scarcity rather than suppose it
to be the result of dear sugar or an in
creased tariff on straw.' It is some
thing for nopulistst to admit the ex
istence of a measure of prosperity
from any cause whatever outside of
populist government. Altogether,
then, the resolution exhibits populist
platform improvement, both in temper
and wit.
NoDO So Bliad.
Wallace Tug: If there is a man in
the country who will not admit that
prosperity has returned, he is a hope
less case. If he lives a hundred years
he will always be found damning the
government and the plutocrats and
registering a demand for the initiative
and referendum. Prosperity has come
to us as a nation, but many an honest
and hard working man does not share
in it. Sickness, drouth, storms, grass
hoppers, cutworms, etc., will always
find victims; others will never prosper,
because they're not built, that way.
But as a nation we're all right again,
and the man who cannot see it is hope
lessly or wilfully blind.
Repent and lie Saved.
Lousville Courier-Journal: As a dem
ocrat, we appeal to democrats to come
out from the body of death which en
velops them in the camp of Bryanism
and to march with us upon the broad
open highway of democracy. As a
democrat, we appeal once again to
summon to mind and heart the cour
age of conviction and to stand as of
old a wall of conservative democracy
against the follies and passions of those
extreme and unsound men who wear
the mask of democracy only the butter
to serve the purpose of fanaticism and
Blow Hot and Cold.
Ord Times: The withont-the-aid-or-consent
people claim now that prices
arc getting too high for the poor labor
ing people. Last fall prices were too
low for the poor farmer. When prices
are low they arc anxious to die for the
farmer and put the price up, and the
next week when the price has come up,
they begin to be friends with the city
consumer and want the price down.
Now if they will explain how to have
high prices for one and low prices for
the other at the same time, there would
le some sense in their talk.
ot a Democrat.
Ijonisville Courier-Journal: Mr. Bry
an deplores the fact that the New
York popoerats refuse to say anything
about silver in the present campaign.
In this Mr. Bryan and his national
committee chairman, Mr. Jones, are at
loggerheads, Mr. Jones having advis
ed the course which Mr. Bryan depre
cates. This, however, is only one of
the differences between Mr. Bryan and
Mr. Jones. Mr. Jones was long a good
democrat: Mr. Bryan has always been
more of a populist than a democrat,
and more of a I "ry anile than anything.
Time to Cut Loose.
Weeping Water Republican: Judge
Sullivan said the next day after he had
received the nomination for supreme
judge that he thought the high prices
for farm products would injure him to
some extent in the campaign, but not
enough to prevent his election. May
the good Lord deliver us from a party
that tL rives on the adversity of the
people. Is it not about time for honest
men to cut loose from parties holding
theories that require calamity to the
people in order to secure party success?

A Dire Extremity,
lloston Those who are in
clined to cast harsh reflections upon
Mr. Bryan because he traveled on
passes which implies that he repre

an office-seeker without an office, and
a lawyer without clients. The lectur
ing business has been ruined b3' the
wheat crop, and the misguided, over
advertised man has a family. What if
he did stretch a point in get a pass?
A Smooth Scheme.
Elk Creek Herald: The populists
did not do a thing but sell their body,
and souls to W. .1. Bryan and the crip
pled wing of the democratic party at
the triangular state convention at
Lincoln. It was another one of Bryan's
smooth schemes and the pops are now
black and blue from kicking them
selves over being duped so easily by
their idol. After all the scheming it
took exactly twenty seven hours to se

South Omaha Sun: The fact is daily
becoming more apparent to the popu

but they have got to swallow the pill of

BaralatT Over Old Strawberry Beds,
NOTICE in your
issue of July Mr.
Brinkley's inquiry
in relation to the
burning off of old
strawberry beds,
writes J. H. Hale
in Strawberry Cul
turist. I am not
much of a believer
In old strawberry
beds, still I know
that under certain conditions they are
fairly profitable, for on old beds the
fruit ripens a week or so earlier than
the same varieties in new beds. In
years past I had a considerable experi
ence in burning over old beds, but it
has nearly always been within two or
three weeks after the fruiting season,
when I hare a mowing machine go
over and cut down berry plants, weeds,
grass, and everything quite close to
the ground and then in a few days af
ter all were thoroughly dried and there
was a good fair wind blowing I have
started fires on the windward side and
burned the field over rapidly; this kill
ed all fungus diseases, insects, weed
seeds, etc.. and injures but few o! the
plants, although occasionally where
the roughage is a little heavy it may
make too hot a fire and hurt a few
clowns. If this burning over can be
tone Just before a rain storm I have
found the plants start new leaves very
rapidly. I have some times after the
burning run a smoothing harrow over
th entire field to loosen up the ground
a little; this tears out a few plants, but
dos no harm to matted beds; it is
soD'etimea advisable after the harrow
ing to run a cultivator over between
the rows and loosen up the ground,
whh helps to stimulate a new growth
mqj8 rapidly. What effect mowing oft
tht tops and burning the field later in
tho season would do I am not sure, but
th fruit crowns will be forming late
in ugust and early in September, and
I -v.uld tot think that burning over at
tula, season would be safe or advisable.
I a rather of the opinion now that as

A writer in an exchange says: The
.oad of wheat or hay that can be drawn
to the barn is measured by the worst
lace in the farm road leading to the
r.i. This may seem a small matter,
.:u it is not so on thousands of farms.
t cannot aConl to have a bad piece in
itie road, because time and wages of
neii are going on wnile the team is
.ailed or taking only tnree-fourths of
jl icad to escape stalling. A day's work
or man and team filling gullies and
chuck-holes, and doing a little grading
of steep bluffs, would be worth twenty
dollars on a few farms with which I
am acquainted. It would save wear of
wagon, team and driver's temper, and
make it possible to increase the size
of loads without danger of overload
ing. This work should be done thor
oughly and on time. I prefer having
it done a mor th before harvest, so that
some wear may make it smooth. These
are "details," but details count. A
man will spend half a dollar to go to
a circus and be happy two hours, while
that half a dollar expended in perma-
nently getting rid of some nuisance
would save him from being mad a !
month, if ail the little vexatious times j
could be shoved together and be thus
measured. '
Bees anil Horticulture.

colonies located only from one to two
miles apart, writes Mrs. L. Harrison in
Rural Wrorld. Judging from this,

tivate both fruit and bees." It would
be better for the welfare of our country
it bees were more equally distributed.
Very large apiaries are not as desirable
as that every orchard and farm should
have sufficient workers to gather the
nectar, and fertilize the bloom. It Is
not necessary that every farmer should
be a skillful apiarist, and secure large
crops of honey, but he should keep
bees in large hives, well protected from
the intrusion of stock. Where horses
and other animals "pave been Injured
by being stung It was usually the re
sult of carelessness. Hives should be
well protected, and not placed near
hitching posts, nor drinking places.
Plant for Bees. Bee-keepers who
have experimented along this line
claim that it does not pay to plant for
honey alone; but there are many crops
and trees that can be grown, that have
a dual value, such as the clovers, al
slke and white. What is more beauti
ful upon a lawn than the linden or
bass wood? Sweet clover, Mellltotus al
ba and Mellitotus officinalis, are yearly
gaining in favor, as food for stock and
bees, and are fast rooting out dog-fennel
and other noxious weeds, from
roadsides and waste places. They thrive
on gravelly knolls, railroad embank
ments and rocky hillsides.
Digestive Fewer of AalmmU.
The digestive and assimilative pow
ers of animals are much more vigorous
when they are young than when they
have grown old, and in selecting cattle
for feeding purposes this should be
borne in mind. This difference is
plainly shown in the tests that have
been made from time to time, the gain
being much more rapid during the first
two years than it is afterwards, and the
profits from feeding correspondingly
greater. It is frequently the case, to
be sure, that old cattle grow very fat,
but it must be borne in mind that this
has come about from long-continued
feeding, and the question is to be con
sidered whether, when the value of the
food consumed Is taken Into account,
there is any profit left Iu the selection
of animate it should not be taken for
granted that a large beast will neces
sarily eat more than a suall one, for
this Is not always the case. Much de
pends on the powers of assimilation.
It has ofen been noticed that one lot
of cattle will thrive and make rapid
gain on much less food than another.
Careful watching of the stock while be
ing fattened, and keeping an accurate
account of the cost of food consumed,
will soon enable a man to nuke such
selections as may be depended on to
show good returns. Ex.
IllversifTinc Asrlcfltiiral redacts.
The first thing that suggests itself
to my mind is diversification of our
agricultural products. We are now
importing from foreign countries agri
cultural products of an average value
of 1369.651,012, which is a HU'e more
than one-half of all our importations
of all kinds. Some of these importa
tions cannot be profitably -oduced
here; a huge share of them (fin and
ought to ba produced hete by Ameri
can farmers. This would give em
ployment to labor in this country and
ought to be produced heve by Ameri
can farmeig. This would giva em
ployment to labor in this country aud
keep at home tbe millions th&t 'go
abroad to pay for foreign labor. Such
diversification would also reduce the
production of the cereals which have
been produced in late years at a loss.
It Is folly for us to try to force upon
consumers more of any product than
their wants demand. We must learn
to supply them with what they want
and then make them pay fair prices
for the same. In this way we may
exercise some control over our busi
ness and realize some profit on our
labor and investment. J. H. Brighaxn.
Cabbages in Winter.
The old plan of burying, or putting
cabbage in trenches during winter, or
for winter use, has become obsolete,
and a more simple and easy plan has
been adopted. Where cabbage is grown
on a large scale for shipping purposes,
the best plan is to lift tbe cabbage and
stack them two tiers deep and as close
ly as they can be placed in an orchard,
or wood if convenient, and cover with
leaves to the depth of two or three
inches, the leaves to be kept in place by
a slight covering of earth, says Amer
ican Gardening. In this way the
heads will keep perfectly sound all
winter, and they can be easily
taken up as wanted for ship
ping. For family use cabbages can
be kept in the' same way, only it will
not be necessary to make the second
layer. It Is quite important to keep
them a little below the freezing point.
It has been suggested to keep them in
some convenient building, but this
plan has always resulted in failure, as
the dry atmosphere is fatal; cabbage
must be kept moist and cool, the slight
est wilting rende it unfit for the
Keeping; tirapee.

had been hung up had become decayed
and had dropped off; on the other

An Interesting paper was read re
cently before a convention of anthro
pologists in session at Detroit. Mich
by the Rev. Stephen D. Peet, entitled
"The Serpent Symbol in Nicaragua and
Yucatan." He said in brief: "The
serpent symbol is prevalent all over
this continent. It appears In effigies in
Canada, Ohio, Illinois and Minnesota.
There are many serpent myths among
the Iroquois and Algonquins. These
represent the serpent as coming out of
the water and fascinating men and
turning them into serpents, taking
them below the water, thus reminding
us of the temptation. The serpent, al
so, is a water god, who antagonizes
(he chief god, and produces a great
Hood. The story of the flood Is al
ways associated with the serpent as the
cause. The serpent. In fact, is the
source of evil.
"In Nicaragua and Central America
the serpent is, on the other hand, a
source of good. He is in reality the
symbol of the raincloud, and the crops
and the seasons are dependent upon
his appearance. Instead of antagoniz
ing the chief divinity, he seems to be
sailing through the air bearing the
chief divinity on his back. Sometimes
there are vases held in the folds of the
serpent that are emptying water or
rain upon the fields. In Nicaragua the
serpent appears in the architecture
highly wrought and sculptured with
great force. There are serpents guard
ing the balustrades to the pyramids,
and other serpents covered with feath
ers which form the piers by the side
of the doorways to the temples. The
Idea is that they are coming down
from the clouds, along the fronts of the
temple, to the ground, symbolizing
rain clouds. The sacred book of the
Mayas have many serpents coiled up.
with coils on the oases and heaps of
corn in the latter. Even the hiero
glyphs of the Mayas have serpents up
on them, the serpent forming one part
of the glyph, suggesting that a pho
netic alphabet grew out of the picture
graphs and the symbols. The serpent
itself gives one of the elements. Among
the Pueblos the serpent figured in a
very Interesting way. When the chil
dren were initiated, and were to re
ceive the breath of the divinity through
the sacred plumes, they were prepared
to enter the sacred city, which is un
der the water of tbe sacred lake. But
the serpent must also be carried to the
upper door of the place of worship
where the children are, and its mouth
placed near the entrance. Water and
seed were poured through the serpent
effigy. The priests below caught the
water in a sacred vessel and the seed
in sacred baskets, and presented them
to the children, teaching them that
both water and seed came from the
serpent, which was the symbol of the

A wash that will remove the oily ap

opoonful of tincture of benzoin added
to fifteen teaspoonfuls of soft water

a dainty fragrance much resembling

In making meringues for a pie, never
use less than the whites of two eggs.
Take or.e tablespoonful of pulverized

over it. Be careful to spread the mer
ingue over the crust. Place in a cool
oven until a delicate fawn color.
Of late the Duchess of York has been
wearing a very neat tailor gown of
dark blue with a short eton jacket
bound in white moire, which also forms
the revers, edged with black braiding.
The same style trimming is also intro
duced at the foot of the skirt.
There is a revolution In veils this
year. Those of black net lined with
pink did not meet favor, though lined
veils on another principle are now the
swellest things out. The veil of the
! day hails from Paris, and is called the
peisane. It is of white silk tulle.
A short white eton in pique or drill
is very smart for bicycling. With a
dark gray skirt, vest and belt of rose
glace silk and a sailor hat bound with
pink ribbon, the effect Is charming.
At least, so says an English fashion
journal, but the American mind
shrinks from such a combination.
A new idea in handkerchiefs is to
embroider them on one side with tiny

gown It is embroidered and scented
, with lilacs or violets.
