the democraticvstate central committee
tried to keep it a great secret that W.
J. Bryan would make speeches for
Loomis and the democratic state and
county tickets. Whether this was
done for fear Bryan's speeches would
hurt their ticket, or whether they
thought the ticket would be defeated
anyway, and Bryan's speeches shown

nomrtimm The people of Nebraska
thought as long as they raised good
crops and received good prices for
them, a panic in New York moneyed
circles would have no effect out here,
but they find they were mistaken.
State lines or distance makes no differ
ence, this is a great country, and what
affects any part of it affects to some
extent the entire country. When the
New York banks refused to pay out
currency, Chicago banks followed
suit, and so did Omaha ' and other
large cities. This entire country lies
ona sound financial basis, with sound
economic laws, so the panic only last
ed afew days. So long as a panic
only affects stocks, Nebraska need not
care much, but when there k no ready
cash to buy cattle and grain, we fed
it at once. This financial flurry has
again proven the strength and solidity
of our four Columbus banks, and all
the banks of Platte county.
The improvement of the Mississippi,
Missouri and Ohio rivers, with their
principal tributaries, such astheMo
nongahela, the lower Wabash, Illinois,
Wisconsin, St Croix, Tennessee and
Arkansas, is a movement that eastern
people know comparatively little
about. As it is not dramatic or
spectacular it attracts less attention
than its importance calls for.. Possibly
all the river improvement which is
necessary could be accomplished for
the cost of transporting our fleet

it be understood at once that Secre

as much if not more than aay of his

out of the hands of the speculative

The United States is in' reality the

than it has to come te the relief of

security extended being equal But
no secretary of the treasury with a
surplus on hand has found a way of
sidestepping the responsibility. In
democratic times, with a treasury de
ficit instead of a surplus, there is never
aay occasion for worry over what to
do to prevent the federal funds ac
cumulating into threatening totals.
As secretary of the treasury, Mr. Cor
telyou today has charge of something
like $236,000,000, representing a sur
plus over the liabilities of the govern
ment, in addition to the $150,000,000
retained in gold to maintain the
parity between gold and the green
backsand silver notes. In other words,
the treasury holds about $500,000,000,
which is supposedly not in use at all,
but which represents something more
than one-sixth of the actual money
supply of the nation.
It is gratifying, of course, to know
that Uncle Sam has more money -than
he knows what to do with, but the
fact remains that the condition works
a hardship on the industry of the
country.1 How to secure the benefit of
the circulation of this surplus in the
treasury vaults is the' vexed problem,
but none of the plans offered has ap
pealed strongly to public sentiment
Until this problem is settled wisely
and satisfactorily the nation will have
to be content to leave one-sixth of its

Apparently Great Britain is soon to
be plunged into a destructive internal

held to a legitimate level, cumulative
voting by stockholders lias prevented
the abuses incident to one-man power,
there is no rebating, no arbitrary rate
cutting, no arbitrary rate nuking, and
the service is regulated as strictly as

is expressed from four quarters: The
public with high freight rates, the
railroad managers with Ugh taxes,
the stockholders with low dividends,
about three and a. fourth percent, and
the employes with low wages.
Yet it is not priasarily wages or

The employes demand higher wages
and shorter hours, but the sticking
point is "recognition'' of the anion.
The amalgamated society of railway
servants demands that the railroads
