We have lower interest and higher wages, more money and fewer

products, which go now where they have never gone before. We have

It Looks Like Bonnets.
"The decision must be made, as it was
made in 1896, between national honor
and national dishonor, between ruin and
safety. There is but one issue, and it is
sharp and clear. We have full confi
dence that the American people will
decide this question as they decided
four years ago.

deserves and will receive a vote of re
newed confidence and re-election to the
office he has well administered." From
the New York Times (Democratic), July
These statements define the position
of the leading democratic newspaper of
New York and of the United States
with regard to the questions involved in
the presidential campaign of 1900. Cer
tainly no anti-republican journal has
exceeded the Times in vigorous and
able treatment of broad national ques
tions. None has more effectively taken
issue with certain republican principles
and policies, notably the principle of
Protection to American labor and in
dustry. In view, therefore, of its pre
vious attitude the determination of the
Times to oppose Bryan and advocate
the re-election of President McKinley
acquires a special significance. It ap
peals with great force to a reading con
stituency largely made up of democrats
of independent tendencies democrats
who are in business, or who work for
wages, and who, accordingly, will adopt
the course which the Times has adopted
and will choose for prosperity, safety
and honor as against ruin, recklessness
and dishonor. They will support and
vote for the re-election of William Mc
Kinley as president of the United States.
In opposing the popocrat nominee on
the ground of national honor, national
safety and national prosperity the New
York Times finds itself in excellent com
pany. A large number of democratic
newspapers of marked character and in
fluence have already indicated a similar
decision. The press dispatches of July
8, as printed in the New York Herald of
July 9, embody a notable list of journal
istic bolters from the Kansas City plat
form and ticket
The Boston Herald, which leads the
democratic press of New England in
circulation and influence, announces its
intention to support McKinley.
The Philadelphia Record, foremost
among the journals of that city, in cir
culation, and the only outright demo
cratic daily in the Pennsylvania metrop
olis, refuses to support Bryan, because
"he is not a democrat, but a populist"
The Observer of Charlotte, N. C, al

that it will not support Bryan, because

cratic bolters and dissenters among the
important newspapers of the country.
It looks like business the business of
level headed democrats who, whether
employers or wage earners, see nothing

IMPORTANT WORD "IF."
Oar Holiness im China
"What business have we in China?"
demands the New York Herald. That
is pretty effectually answered by the cir
cular which the United States govern
ment lias sent to tho powers, declaring
that it is our purpose, "as it has been
heretofore, to act concurrently with the
other powers, first, in opening up com
munication with Pekin and rescuing the
American officials, missionaries and
other Americans who are in danger;
secondly, in affording all possible pro
tection everywhere in China to Ameri
can life and property: thirdly, in guard
ing and protecting all legitimate Ameri
can interests, and fourthly, in aiding to
prevent a spread of the disorders to the
other provinces of the empire and a
recurrence of such disasters." A gov
ernment that would seek to do less
would be a contemptibly poor govern
ment of a contemptibly poor people.
Hon. J.Sterliko Morton, Cleveland's
secretary of agriculture, who is one of
the most robustly democratic of all the
democrats of the country, says Bryan
will be beaten worse in 1900 than he
was in 1896, and that he deserves to be
beaten worse. This looks like a safe
prophecy. Repudiation this year cer
tainly is as objectionable to the country
as it was four years ago, but repudia
tion is only one phase of Bryanism now.
Flag-furling, the abandonment of Amer
ican citizens in China, and a policy of
general imbecility and cowardice are in
volved in the Bryanism of 1900. Thus
Bryan is much more hostile to true
Americanism in 1900 than he was in
1896, and stands 'an exceedingly good
chance to get hit harder by-the Amer
ican people. St Louis Globe-Democrat

"There Is not a state In the Union 'to

before the Republican national conven

trade against protection." There Is not

this statement is absolutely true.

his speech, "never was a policy more
fully Justified by Its works" than our
tariff policy. And -it has been justified
In every state In the Union and in ev

Okaba, July 23. It is definitely
settled that Theodore Roosevelt will
pay Nebraska a visit 'during the
pending campaign. This statement
is made on the authority of Chair
man Lindsay of the state central com
mittee, who says that Governor Roose
velt will devote at least a week to the
campaign in Nebraska. It will be a
great treat to the people of Nebraska
to see, not only the next vice president
of the United States, but one of the
foremost scholars and statesmen of the
nation a man of high distmguisbment
in civil and military life. The exact
time Governor Roosevelt will be here
has not, as yet, been determined.
The list of speakers for the campaign
will contain among others the names of
many noted statesmen and orators, 'the
object being to so present the evidenee
that the verdict rendered in the'ikigK
court of public opinion shall be based on
an intelligent understanding. " Itnever
has been, and is not now, the desire of
the Republican party to acqaire paMio
stewardship by false pretenses. More
than once the Republican party has ' re
sisted supposedly popular vagaries in
the face of a popular demand for their
adoption, because it was confident that,
it was right and that the vagaries were
not alone wrong, but fraught with
great public danger.
It is the party that struck the chains
of slavery from the black man when
more than half of the nation opposed it
It is the party that disciplined a dis
obedient and rebellious confederacy and
established forever the unity of the re
public while all the world looked on in
It is the party that for 40 years has
maintained an industrial policy which
distinguishes American labor from that
of all the rest of the' world, and which
has elevated it to a standard unequaled
in the history of civilized nations. For
40 years the Republican party has stood
guard at the doorway of labor, repuls
ing again and again the attacks of
Democratic free trade. Defeated in
their repeated efforts to bring American
labor to a level with the pauper labor
of Europe, the fusionists. have
adopted a new scheme aud that is to
lure labor away from its safe moorings
through alluring promises contingent
upon a change in the monetary system.
It isn't free trade now, though the
fusionists are just as much for ..free
trade now as they ever were, it is free
silver. One is fraught with as much
distress to. the American people as the
other. Neither can be adopted, with
out being attended by inconceivable
disaster. The Republican party believes
in a free people, free homes and free
government it does not believe in free
trade or free silver.
The Republican party believes 'in-. ex
pansion. It believes in extending.the
benefits. of free citizenship and 'self-government-to
every possible climof It
believes in proKress'in" commercial anoT
territorial expansion, to the end that all'
may be benefited and the world in gen
eral brought under the benign influence
of Christianity and intelligence.
The history of the United States is a"
history of expansion expansion in ter
ritory, as well as in trade, art, science,
,and literature. Expansion upon, any
pretext was until recently opposed by
the fusionists. They charged that rthe
Republicans were imperialistic when
they declared in favor of territorial ex
pansion. They have, in a degree, since
changed their orthodoxy. The Demo
cratic national convention at Kansas
City which handled the expansion
question with such passive delicacy 'was
held in territory acquired by expansion.
The site of Kansas City is part of the
Louisiana purchase. Nebraska,, the
home of W. J. Bryan, the Democratic
candidate for president, was Spanish
territory when Jefferson was made
president. Nearly 300 members of the
Kansas City convention came from ter
ritory acquired through expansion.
More than 40 of the delegates came from
territory annexed in consequence of the
war with Mexico. Minnesota, Mon
tana, Missouri, Nebraska, Arkansas,
Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, North aud
South Dakota, Oklahoma, Wyoming,
and part of Colorado, had 180 votes in
the convention, and expansion re
claimed this territory from Spanish
dominion less than 100 years ago.. It
would appear that the only kind, of -expansion
which seems to soar to the apex
of fusion estimation and expectancy is
pulmonary expansion. Give them this,
coupled with uncircumscribed loquac
ity, free from the moral restraint of
ethical jurisprudence, and in the fusion
way of looking at it, the problem of ex
pansion is solved. Forced by public
opinion, however, and by the logic of
the situation to acknowledge the wis
dom of the Republican policy of expan
sion, the fusionists are now for' expand
sion conditioned on a most incongrfc
ent contingency. In other wordstuthar
favor a policy of expansion that-., would.
not expand and would benefit

other great nations of the earth

The Philippine islands have been
r.dded to the tcrritorv of the TTnitpl
States as a legacy of conquest. These
islands had for two hundred years been
under the sovereignty of Spain and for
all of that time had felt and experienced
all the iniquities of monarchical rule.
When the hand of President McKinley
was raised against Spanish atrocities in
Cuba and the Philippines, it was -not
for the purpose of acquiring nw pos
sessions in the Orient. Naval and mili
tary strategy alone directed movement
toward the Philippines, and those
waters were invaded with no other
object in view than the destruction .or
capture of the Spanish squadron. Not
mntutne treaty of Paris was entered
Into did the United States undertake to
exercise control over the Philippines.
au treaty passea sovereignty over
these Islands from Spain to the United
States, and it is a forcible reminder to
Bryan and those fusionists who are
finding fault with the McKinley ad
ministration for attempting to restore
law and order in the PhOippfaiMvthat
this very obligation, this very duty, is
the result of Senator Allen's vote and
the personal efforts of W. J. Bryan to
nave the treaty ratiled. Without

efforts of W. J. Bryan the

The importance of the United States
retaining the Philippines, from a com
mercial standpoint, is not to be dis
counted. It is. an important link in the
policy of commercial expansion. Par
ticularly is this true when considered
in connection with American trade in
China. It is only recently, and it is
due to the wise statesmanship of Mc
Kinley, that American products have
found their way to China in any mater
ial quantity. The "open door" policy
recently promulgated opens up to the
farmers and producers of the United
States a market, the consuming capa
city of which challenges computation.
China hasan area of more than one
twelfth of the globe and a population
variously estimated at between 900,000,
000 and 450,000.000. Her export and
import trade reaches enormous propor
tions and it will require time and en
ergy alone for the United States to de
velop an enormous trade in that
country and with these people. It is a
mild assertion to state that China alone
can consume every bushel of surplus
farm products in the United States.
The farmers of Nebraska, as well as the
farmers of other agricultural states,
should, therefore, in considering the
policy of this government toward the
Philippines consider the importance of
a commercial footing in China, an es
sential of which is control of the itiwnflg,

Important as are the national issues
of scarcely less importance to the people
of Nebraska are the state issues. It is
no secret that under the Poynter ad
ministration widespread corruption has
been practiced, to say nothing of the
evil effect of ignorance and incompe
tency. Out of the many state institutions
there is scarcely one whose manage
ment is not contaminated and tainted
by fmud, corruption and spoliation.
The state lias been swindled out of
thousands of dollars, and that, too, by
the representatives of the very party
that promised the people of Nebraska
an honest and economical administra
tion of public affairs. Not only have
state institutions been made asylums
for broken down politicians, but the
public funds have been exposed to their
rapacity with the result, that while the
26th general assembly or session of the
legislature appropiated the enormous
sum of 13,591,873 for public purposes,
there will be a large deficiency at the
end of the current year. Nearly every
;iaa4itation waa already, exhausted - the
i amount appropriated for it and there
.are yet six months of the time unex
pired. In some of the institutions
laborers have not been paid for several
months and they will have to wait until
the legislature meets and passes an ap
propriation before they can draw
their pay. There is scarcely an insti
tution, in fact, there is not one, but at
the end of the present year 'will not
have a sadly depleted exchequer.
What is equally as bad as raiding the
treasury is ignorance and incompe
tency in managing the public institu
tions. Evidence of this evil is abundant.
Scarcely an institution has escaped.
All have been used to reward party
satellites regardless of qualification or
fitness. Poynter has gone farther in
making the public patronage a legal
tender for the payment of personal ob
ligation than any other governor has
dared to go. Positions requiring skill
and knowledge of particular branches
have been given to party favorites ir
respective of their ability to fill them.
