It appears that the silver men in con
gress have boon thrown into confusion
by the discovery that the ofTcct of the free
coinage bill passed oy the senate last Fri
day will bo to demonetize coin notes to
Iho amount of more than $80,000,000 and
postpone tholr redemption until con-
prcM authorizes it. In repealing the
act of 1890 the silver bill does not preserve -
serve the legal tender quality of the
coin notes issued under that not , and Mr.
Bland and ethers in the house hold that
the practical olTcctof this is todemonetlzo
Iho noton. There nro still ethers who
hold that the law of 1890 involves a con
tract which is not invalidated by the ro-
noul of that act. At any rate the ques
tion has o'tuscd a good deal of disturb
ance in the silver rnnka , not because it
creates a difllculty that cannot easily bo
remedied , but for the reason that it may
result in prolonging the session. The
matter is interesting ohlolly aa showing
that in limit * haste to secure legislation
on this subject the silver men are not at
all solicitous about datails.
The measure has gone to the house ,
which will provide by amendment what
is doomed to be defective. Speculation
will now bo in order as to the probable
fate of the measure in that body. It
would seem to bo the purpose of those
friendly to the measure to press it to
consideration , but whether they will bo
more successful than on a former occa
sion is altogether * problematical. The
anti-free silver democrats may reason
ably bo expected to make as earnest and
vigorous a light as they did against the
Bland bill , but it is a question whether
they will now have the help of the re
publicans as they did then.
The situation has soinowhn ] > changed ,
and the republicans may not feel called
upon to again interpose to prevent the
democrats from passing a free silver bill
if 11 majority of them desire to do so.
It is not dilllcult to see that reasons for
doing this which wore good two months
ago may not bo equally valid now , and
that it might oven bo expedient , from a
political point of view , to lot tbo demo
crats in coug ess go squarely on record
in favor of the free and unlimited coinage -
ago of silver by the passage of a bill
which President Harrison unquestion
ably would veto. All but nine demo
cratic senators wont on record for this
policy in the vote of last Friday and
doubtless a majority of the democrats in
the house will support the Stewart bill ,
which is as extreme a free silvur measure
uro as was ever framed.
So fur as President Harrison is concerned -
corned , the passage of a free coinage
bill would doubtless cause him no con-
corn. It would give him an opportunity
to nppoal to the intelligent judgment of
the country on this question with a full
ness and force which could hardly fail
to exert a most wholesome influence
oven upon tbo people of the Hilvor states ,
many of whom , it is fair to assume , are
not incapable of appreciating argument
that conflict ! * with the theories and the
demands of the mine owners. At any
rate , the country may fool assured that
if the president is called upon to dual
with this question ho will not hesitate
to do what ho believes to bo his duty ,
having regard for the interests and wel
fare of the whole poople.

The Tammany society of Now York
celebrated the Fourth of July in accord
ance with its custom , and the braves
assembled in the wig\vam wore regaled
with a communication from Grover
Cleveland in which ho said that "polit
ical organization is only effective and
successful when approved and tested by
intelligent popular government. " Like
many of Mr. Cleveland's utterances this
has a lofty sound , but its moaning is
very obscure. Considering that it was
addressed to Tammany it is probable
that it moans that nothing succeeds like
success. But it may moan a number of
things. How can intelligent popular
government approve and test the offccl-
ivonqss and success of political organiza
tion'It is obvious that it cannot do it
at nil. Effective organization bears no
relation whatever to Intelligent popular
government. Mr. Cleveland appears to
have had -jomo words at his command ,
but no ideas.
But it is interesting to note that the
democratic candidate for tbo presidency
is beginning to recognize the importance
of effective political organization. Ho
finds in Tammany a shining example of
Hiich organization , though the great
municipal government which it specially
controls , and the state government in
which it has lately gained great power , do
not appear to bo either intelligent or
popular. The truth is that Mr. Cleveland
fools the need of Tammany's aid. llo
did not care for it at Chicago , but the
situation is wonderfully clitincrod now.
lie is convinced that something must bo
done in the way of practical politics.
Tammany will certainly do something
practical. The Now York delegation
at Chicago said that it would. It
promiHod with much fervor that Turn-
many would slay Grover Cleveland and
that will bo practical enough. In that
event parhaps it may bo said that intol-
hgont populargovornmunt approves and

Omaha may well fool proud of the
great Fourth of July demonstration. It
was an enthusiastic and almost sponta
neous outburst of genuine patriotism.
Never before have the people of all classes
and conditions entered HO thoroughly
into the spirit of iho occasion. With
only ton days of preparation and a very
limited amount of money our citizens
not only made a creditable exhi
bition of celebrating Independence day

proei't-sloiis , illuminations and discharge
of guns and crackers , but they actually

priety of making Omaha's ' Fourth of

South Dakota and Kansas who llvo
within leO to UOU miles will find it

The candidates of the people's party
for president and vice president of the
United States will not attract votes by
reason of the superiority of either their
abilities or tholr characters. T-hcy do
not bring to the cause of the new party
the prestige of illustrious achievement
in any direction. They have never given
evidence of pro-omlnontnbillty either In
public station or in the affairs of private
life. Neither has over shown any broad
knowledge or elevated conception of
statesmanship. They are citizens of
good ehaructcr , but no bolter in tins ro-
spoot than a million other mon who nro
their ncors In ability. They wore pre
ferred by the people' : * party because for
a number of years they have been con
spicuously aggressive in tholr hostility
to existing conditions and represent as
fully ns any ethers in that party the
spirit of discontent and dissatisfaction
which is the reason for ita being. _
General Weaver , the candidate for
president , made a creditable record as a
union soldier. Fora quarter of a cen
tury bo has shown tin inordinate desire
for public ollico and during moro than
half of that time bo has boon in olllce.
He served three tnrms in congress and
distinguished himself chiefly as an ob
structionist It Is not remembered that
ho originated any valuable legislation ,
though it is quite possible that ho may
have assisted , in ono way or another , in
the enactment of some. Ho succeeded ,
however , in attracting public attention.
Never heartily in sympathy with
cither ot the old parties , ho readily iden
tified himself with and became a loader
of Iho greenback party , which came into
being under the respectable and respon
sible leadership of the philanthropic
Peter Cooper , and in 18SO was made the
presidential candidate of that party , re
ceiving ( i few moro than 1500,000 volea
out of moro than 0.000,000 cast at the
election of that year. General Weaver
has steadfastly adhered to Ihc linanciai
views ho adoplcd at that time , uiul his
nomination by the people's party on a
platform favo. iug Hat currency is there
fore consistent and logical. His past
position is entirely in harmony with
that of a party which proposes to got
something for nothing.
The candidate for vice president , Gen
eral Field of Virginia , has until now enjoyed -
joyed only a , local fame , but it appears
that ho has for some years boon moro or
less industriously agitating in his own
fiUUo the principles which have brought
into life the now political organization.
Ho was a soldier in the confederate
service , and according to these who
vouched for his claims to the considera
tion of Iho now party , ho was as zealous
as any of his compeers in his oiTorls to
destroy the union. Doubtless , like most
of bis associates in that undertaking , ho
fools no regret at what ho did , but being
now a loyal citizen ho wants to overturn
the policies and principles of the party
that preserved tbo union and substitute
some of these which were promised in
the event of tbo success of the confeder
In the campaign of educalion upon
which the country is entering the can
didates aa well as the principles of the
people's party will receive careful con
sideration. It does not seem nt all
probable that they will grow in popular
regard as men to bo preferred to the
candidates of the old parties in the
highest olllcos of the republic.
For the third time within three months
the coal combine has advanced the price
of anthracite coal. This increase took
olfect several days ago , but has not yet
produced any effect hero. At this time
last , year anthracite was soiling in
Omaha at $ ! ) .U.j per ton ; now the uniform
price is fixed by the Coal exchange of
the city at $10 per ton. But it is antici
pated by local dealers that the price will
bo advanced beyond this figure and it is
impossible to contract for anthracite for
future delivery at the liguro now named.
Of course the prices prevailing in
Omahaaro governed by the combination.
The dealers hero are agents of the pro
ducers and are obliged to maintain
prices in accordance with the principles
which always govern dealers who have
no power to influence the sources of sup
ply. The people of Omaha will un
doubtedly witness during the next six
months advances In llio cost of coal
equal to these which have taken place
since last summer. Ton dollars a ton Is
enough to pay for coal indeed It is en
tirely too much but the end is not yot.
The logical result of the oppressive
policy adopted by the coal barons will
bo a great falling off in the consumption
of the products of the mines which they
control. Hetronchmont in this direc
tion will not bo easy for the citizens of
Omaha , boc'tuso the cheap bituminous
coal at tholrdlsposal is a poor subsllluto
for anthracite , but in many localities
whore coke and wood may bo had at
toanonablo prices there will boa greatly
reduced consumption of anthracite.
The coke ovens of Pennsylvania pro
duce an excel lout fuel , by many consid
ered nearly equal to anthracite coal , tit
prices ranging under $1 a ton to con-
bumors lu adjacent states. This excel
lent fuel ought lobe cheaper limn it is
in the west and might easily bo madoso.
It is evident that the coal monopolists
are overreaching thoiiibolvcs. They are
fixing prices that must inevitably lesson
the demand for anthracite , and aa they
do not by any moans control all the coal
lands In the country they will sooner or
later moot with competitors who will
dispute their supremacy in the markol.
This vast monopoly , like all others ,
grows moro grasping and greedy as It
grows in wealth and power. It wants
the earth immediately and cannot sco
that It is sure to shorten its sales and
therefore Us prolltti by its system of ex
action and oppression. No monopoly
has over thrivedlnng ( upon such a pol
icy There IsaiHmit to public patience
under heavy add Woodless burdens and
the people $ " or later find
relief. "j /
But this systorti of public plunder Is
exceedingly prtifjfyhlo whl'o ' it lasts and
these who arc " 'engaged in it will tinI I
doubtedly tnako'fdrtunes by it before the
tide turns against them. This is the
basis of tholr theory. It la similar to
the method of'lho robber who goes
through a raid-will train. Ho secures
his booty beforeMiis victims have had
time to rceovoV'ftlom tholr amazement
nt his bold plan of procedure.
The states of Pennsylvania and New
Jersey have commenced proceedings In
the courts to compel these coal barons
to consider the interests of the pooplo.
In fact these proceedings wore com
menced months airo , and there is nln-ndy
some public impatience at the delay.
It is to bo hoped that the suspicion that
the coal monopolists nro inlhtcnclng the
courts will prove to bo unfounded ,
PUIIUC Interest in the urogram of the
Twin City Chnutauqua Is growing. On
July 7 Congressman Bl-ind is announced
to spo'tk for the free coinage of silver
and on the 8th Congressman Walker of
Massachusetts will present a powerful
argument ngainst the proposition and in
support ot the present policy of the gov
ernment. Almost every day until July
17 is filled with attractive fo'ittifcs. The
people of Omaha are Inking a great deal
of interest in the Council Bluffs Chatt-
lauqua enterprise and are patronizing
it liberally. It is safe to say that there
is no bolter place near ut hand in which
to take a day's outing.
THE fact that Mr. Fred Nash has de
cided to resign his position as tronoral
western agent of the Chic tgo , Milwau
kee & St. Paul railway to absumo the
position of general manager of the Ne
braska Central affords gratifying proof
that the company moans business this
time. While it may take some months
before uctivo operations can bo begun ,
all the preliminaries of surveying and
making plans for bridging the river
and tunneling , the road to South Omaha
will doubtless bo prosecuted with
energy and all the engineering skill
that may bo required.
IT Ai'l'KAits that J. A. Hauler of
Indiana and Judge Gresham do not
agree as to what the latter said when
the former asKed him if he would -icccpt
the nomination offered him by the pee
ple's party. Mr. Ilausor made consider
able trouble by his dispatch , which faid :
" 1 have jubtsechGroshtiin ; if unanimous
he will not refuse , ' ' Judge Gresham in
forms a representative of the Associated
Press that ho did not say anything to
the effect that ho would accept , but on
tbo contrary ho "Stood by his previous
declination. 'Tho judge is entirely
worthy of belief. *
BIKOIJE the convention the so-called
people's party made four'distinct , em
phatic declarations. They wore doing
to have 1,770 delegates ; they had only
1US. ! They wore going to nominate on
the Fourth of July ; their love 'for "gab"
prolonged it into the 5th. They wore
going to nominate Gresham ; they wore
compelled to nominate Weaver. Their
nominee was to bo elected ; ho will bo
decisively defeated. In other respects
their intentions were fullv carried out.
THERE should bo no more trilling ,
scheming or dilly-dallying with our
public worlts. The season is already
advanced and hundreds of working people
plo oj-o waiting for employment. The
work of grading and paving should bo
begun at once and kept up from now un
til the 1st of December.

IT is worthy of note that the special

from all purls of Nebraska contain a
great many items of news concerning
the establishment of now enterprises
and the extension of these already in

WASHINGTON , U. C. , July 6. )
Not iho slightest ripple of agltattoi
was shown at the white house or elsewhere -
whore in republican circles this morning
when It was announced that the people's
party at Omaha had nominated James 1) ) .
Weaver of Iowa for President , and James O.
Field of Virginia for vice president. Hoth
men nro well known In Washington as
straight out democrats , and no ono hero will
bollovo for u moment that republican
farmers or laborers will support either of
them unless it is their purpose to vote the
democratic ticket , Cabinet oOleors aud re
publicans In congress declare that thoio nom
inal ions must surely have been
mudo under a misapprehension of
facts. If it was the invention to
draw strength from the republican column ,
the only difference which Ihcro can bo found
in the creeds of Weaver and field as against
Cleveland and Stevenson is in their open ad
vocacy of the unlimited unit unrestricted free
coinage of silver. When Weaver was in con
gress slxatid eight years ago and four years
ago , he occupied a seat in the very center of
too democratic sldo of the house. Ho was n
foremost advocate ot free trade , and ono of
the auloil champions of all that was straicht-
out democratic. Ho is an eloquent sneaker
and was generally put torward
by the democrats to defend ihoir
principles. llo never displayed
the least symptom of Independence , always
standing firm for old ultra-democratic prin
ciples , except possibly llnance. Ho was for
Ireo coinage , an unlimited issue of green
backs , ana stood tor all that was wildcat in
the theories of the liillutionists.
It is believed here that the ticket mrulo 'at
Oma.ha last night will serve only to draw
votes from the democratic ranks of the
.south , as the roiiubllcans north and nil voters
ers who have not a straignt-out democratic ;
tendency will refuse to bo hoodwinked oy
the platform as against the records of the
two candidates themselves.

licans could not have kcon made. The head

Those were the expressions used this afternoon -
noon by Senator Paddock ot Nebraska in expressing -
pressing himself upon Iho presidential and
vlco presidential nominations by the people's
party. Snnutor Paddock continued : "James
\Veavorof ioiva is the prince of dema
gogues. Ho endorses every principle in the
democratic decalogue , nnd u good many more.
Ho Is tliu most insane linanciai fanatic
in the country. His theories boat

ex-confederate from Virginia. How any
man of into.ligtmco , aud especially one who
had boon clover enough to have voted und
acted with the republicans ui any time in his
life , could vote for Weaver and fields I can
not conceive. "
Men in both houses of congress whorepro-
scnt.statos of districts In which there are
strong alliance organizations , freely ex
pressed the opinion that the contioiling
spirits In the Omaha convention bad an eye
moro to individuals than to principles in
makiug their nominations , as no intelligent
voter can Do deceived by the platform adopted
into voting for the candidates named.
To Iluriiioiil/o ectlonul Koullng.
It is here thought that the principal object
in view In selecting men for the places on the
ticket who served in the two great armies
durum the Into war was moro to harmonize
the sectional feeling \vithm the alliance than
add strength to the ticket. The lickot will
cut no ligure , it is belle red , In the demo
cratic ranks In the south if the present
efforts of Iho bouroons to detract alien lion
from the real issues of tbo campaign by rais
ing a cry ugainst the "force bill" succeods.
It is not believed that any man in the alli
ance ranks who has over been u republican
can be deceived into supporting such rank
uemocrnts \Vcavcrand Fields.
While in congress Weaver was a reorgan
ized democrat , pure and simple , bui bis
demagogy was at times exasperating nven
to the dullest men in the party. Kroui n
republican point of view the nominations
are both extremely fortunate , and will re
lieve tbo coming contest of the doubt which
might buvo Deon created had real farmers or
recant ropuolicans oeen named , Heiiub-
licans from the alliance states and these

party have exposed tholr character in the
nomination * The records of the candidates
tell the story so well thai II will not bo

peoplo's party platform or the persons who
head the ticket.
H is staled that Hopresentutivo Henderson

of the house so that iho country will know
