171K niMKTAUM 1KAOVK CONVEXI
The convention of the American Bi-
motalllo longuo which will moot In Chi0
cngo totlny will ho largely attended and
will command the attention not only of
thu American people , butof all countries
Interested In the sllvor question. It
would bo uetos t to pretend that thla
convention Is not important or that It
will not exert an Inlluonco. Tholoaguo
represents a very largo number of the
American people and there are enrolled -
rolled In It uniny able mon , not
all of whom can fairly bo charged
with advocating the cause of silver -
vor from motives more or loss
wolfish. Uoproscntlng a very extensive
nnd widely distributed constituency , the
action of the convention cannot fall to
cxort an Inlluonco. Ono tendency It may
reasonably bo expected to have Is that
of encouraging the advocates of free
Ilvnr in congress nnd holding them
Irmly up to the conflict that awaits
So far as the declarations of the .con-
' are concerned it Is easy to fore-
ell what they will bo. They willoppoao
ho unconditional repeal of the silver
mrclmso clause of the Sherman
act ; they will insist that the
only true solution of the currency
n'oblein is to bo found in "tho
'ostorntion of silver to an equal stand *
ng with gold In the mints of- the coun-
, ry ; they will denounce the legislation
) f 187. ! and assert that the present move
ment against silver Is a conspiracy of
; ho money power ngainst the people ;
they will clnlm that it ia the constitu-
, lonal duty of the government to recog-
nb.o sllvor on equal terms with gold ;
they will alllrm that the utilization of
silver to the fullest extent in the cur-
ency is desirable in order to supply the
circulation necessary to do the business of
the country ; they will say that if silver
Is ignored tho-olTect will bo to still
ftirtlier lower the price of wheat
uid other agricultural products ,
to the serious injury of the farmers of
the country ; they will demand that the
ratio between gold and silver bo con
tinued as at present ; and they will urge
that the American people should Imvo a
currency system of their own regardless
of other nations and particularly of
It la entirely Bafo to predict that these
will bo the salient features of the plat
form , which the convention of the Bi
metallic league will adopt and of the
address which it is expeuted to send out
to the country. The American
pcoplo are already familiar with
every statement , assertion and claim
which this convention is likely to make.
The advocates of silver have nothing
new to olTor in defense of their cause ,
and they are confronted by conditions
which confute most of their arguments.
All expedients to clovato silver to a
parity with gold at the old ratio have
failed , and the intelligent and unpreju
diced judgment of the country now de
mands that no further attempt bo made
by legislation to bring the two motah
to such an equality. Under existing law
the government has for three years pur
chased the silver product of this coun
try , and still the price has declined.
Thp treasury is glutted with silver which
cannot bo made to circulate because the
people do not want it. To continue pur
chasing silver would inevitably result in
depleting the country of gold nnd in de
preciating the whole body of the remain
ing currency. To make the coinage of
silver free would bo to force upon the
people an inferior dollar for the , solo
benefit of the silver producers , who
have no right to such special considera
tion on the part of the government. No
ono proposes the total abandonment of
sllvor. It will continue to do service as
currency , us it has done since
the beginning of the govern
ment , but under changed con
ditions from these which have pre
vailed for the past fifteen years. A ma
jority 'of the American pcoplo have
made up their minds to this as being ab
solutely essential to the maintenance of
t ; soutfd and stable currency and the
preservation of the public credit. Wo
do not apprehend that anything which
the convention at Chicago may do or
say will materially alTcet this decision.
The work to bo done * * by the convention
is already largely discounted.
iMKS ur TUB LAD :
The maximum freight rnto law , known
as "an act to regulate railroads , to
classify freights , to lix reasonable maxi
mum rates to bo charged for the trans
portation of freights upon each of the
railroads in the stutoof Nebraska and to
provide penalties for the violation of
this net , " goes into effect today. Nomi
nally it goes into oflect nnd attains a
pluco upon the statute book ; in reality
Its provisions have for the time being
boon shorn of all power , and no visible
change will bo accomplished by the con
summation of that much contested piece
of legislation. JJut tlio law exists. As
yet its constitutionality has not been
prejudiced , in Hplto of the temporary in
junction which prevents the enforce
ment of its provisions.
"Every statute , " said the late Chief
Justice Wulto , "is presumed to bo con-
stittitloiml. The courts ought not
to declare ono to bo unconsti
tutional unless it is clearly so.
If there is any doubt , the expressed
will of the legislature should bo main
tained. " The constitution of Nebraska
expressly confers upon the logisluturo
the power to "from time to time pass
laws establishing reasonable maximum
rates of charge for the transportation of
passengers and freight on the different
railroads in this stuto. " The oxcroiso
of this power need not necessarily bo re
pugnant to the constitution of the
United States and if the legislature has
succeeded in passing an act conbonant
with that constitution the law will utand
although the executive olllcors may bo
temporarily enjoined from enforcing its
penalties. The act remains law until
declared to bo void. Every shipper has
n right to damages resulting from Its
violation , which right may posslblybo
suspended , but cannot bo destroyed so
long us the law is really a constitutional
exoroitto of legislative power. In test
ing its validity by injunclon the rail
ways lay thembolvos liable to an accumu
lation of damage suits in case the in
junction it * finally dissolved.
In /ucautluio , whut rates are now
In I force upon Nebraska railways ? It Is
not so long ago that notice \M given to
the t StfttoUonrd of Transportation that
nil existing tariffs would cease on August
1. j Since that tltno no further notice has
boon \ given as demanded by law that any
other rates than these in-cscribcd In the
maximum freight rate law were to
supplant them. The Injunction proceed
ings j forbid the railway ofllclals to make ,
establish or post n schedule of rates under
the < terms of that law and leaves them In a
peculiar j predicament. They will , of
course , continue to make the RUIHO
charges that are now in force , but thcso
charges have boon declared by the logls-
Inturo ] to bo unreasonable and unjust.
It j comes to this them that \vo have a
law ] upon our statute book which pro
scribes the maximum rates to bo charged
for the transportation of freight bo-
twcon points within this state. Wo
have the enforcement of this law tem
porarily enjoined by order of a federal
court. We have the railways exacting
charges without a legal tarilf. Tn n
word , wo have a living law without the
means of securing its immediate observ
CIMTUHK IA' Tim HOUSE.
Those who remember the storm of
denunciation which the democrats
showered upon the rules of the Fifty-
first congress , framed to allow the will
of the majority to prevail , and the ubtiBO
with which they persistently pursued
Speaker Rood , will bo interested in the
fact that the democrats who sup
port the financial policy of the
administration now propose the adop
tion of similar rules by the Fifty-third
congress in order to prevent the defeat
of that policy. The democratic major
ity of the last house of representatives
promptly wont back to the old
method , this being necessary to save
the party from stultification , but the re
sults were not altogether satisfactory.
Democrats themselves abused the pre
rogatives , the denial of which they had
so rigorously denounced in the preced
ing congress. Tno redoubtable Kilgoro
of Texas and others brought ridicule
and humiliation on the party by the free
use of filibustering tactics to defeat
measures objectionable to them , although
of democratic origin. Numerous object
lessons were furnished in the house of
the lait congress in vindication of the
gag rules" which enabled n republican
house to make ono of the most notable
records of legislative work in the his
tory of congress.
Possibly if the present exigency
could have been foreseen the Fifty-
second congress would not have
"boon so ready to rebuke its prede
cessor in the matter of the rules , but it
was not. As soon , however , as it be
came known that a democratic adminis
tration and congress would have to deal
with the silver question and the policy
of the administration was declared , these
in sympathy with that policy announced
that the only hope of its success was in
a change of the rules that would
put an ollcotlve check upon fili
bustering. At first it was
proposed simply to apply to "cloture , "
which would bo but ono feature , though
n quite important ono , of the tules of
the last republican house. It is proba
ble that tfiis did not go far enough to
satisfy the administration , but at any
rate the further consideration of the
matter seems to have led to the con
clusion that a radical change from the
rules of the last house will be necessary
in order to prevent a protracted battle
over silver. Mr. Crisp is reported to
have admitted that if congress is
to bo controlled and filibustering
prevented , rules practically similar
to these hitherto condemned would
bo absolutely necessary. Mr.
Cockran of New York , who will bo a
very conspicuous figure in this congress ,
is said to bo of the sumo opinion , believ
ing that it is bettor to be inconsistent
and to pay tribute to the parliamentary
genius and skill of the last republican
speaker than to allow "tho respectable
element of the democratic party to be
controlled by a rabble. " If this distin
guished representative of Tammany is
correctly reported ho is prepared to go
even further than the Reed rules went
in order to insure the success of the ad
ministration's financial policy.
The indications nro that ox-Speaker
Reed will have the gratification of see
ing practically the same rules which
brought upon him unstinted democratic
ubusp adopted by a democratic house ,
nnd these who know anything of his
nature can understand how ho would
enjoy and appreciate such a vindication.
Republican votes will probably bo required
quired , however , to olToct the doslrod
change , and it remains to bo soon what
view the minority party in the house
will tuko of their duty in the matter.
It is doubtless safe to predict that they
will bo found standing by the parliamentary
montary record they have made.
ACCOHDINO to Washington advices
Speaker Crisp docs not intend to announce
nounco the composition of the commit
tees In the lower house of the coining
congress until two weeks after it has
convened , no bases his action in thi
respect upon a desire to consult with
the various members of congress in
order to ascertain what positions they
may prefer. To purmio 11 course as thus
outlined savors greatly of imposing on
long buffering pooplo. Judga Crisp has
expected to bo re-oloctod speaker fron
the ( iiiio of the democratic victory las
fall. Ho lias had ample time to soloc
his committees and could have Kocuroi
from the various congressmen an ox
proasion of their desired months ago
Ho knows nnd has always known tha
congress cannot do active work withou
its committees , yet he proposes to act in
the matter just as if ha were making up
the list for the first time. A spajikor
who is ro-oloctcd has no excuse for delaying
laying the announcement of committee
for a uiuglp day.
Mil. JAMES M. GILLAN today assumes
charge of the position of secretary to th
Board of Education , to which ho was re
cently elected. Mr. Glllun'n fumiliurit ;
with thoulTulrs of the board gained by flv
year's oxiHirlenco In reporting its meetings -
ings for the local press enabled him to
ussumo the duties devolving upon him
without the preliminary schooling
which woufd bo nocrusary for a man entirely
tirely unacquainted with the work. Ho
hn.i Imd the faculty of. holding up to the
public pizo the vdvlons actions of the
dllTorent members of the board without
Antagonizing any ono of thorn and this
flvos promise of his nbllty to continue
n harmony with % PQ whoso co-opera
Ion ho will require. Wo do not hesitate
o assure the board that It will not bo
llsappolntcd In Its niMtf secretary.
IT It au Interesting fact that the finan
cial disturbance in th'o United States
conis not to have pWituccd the slightest
effect in Canada. 'No ' Canadian bank
loposltor has had the" faintest grounder
or suspecting that ho might at some
uturo tlmo be paid in any coin or cur-
cncy not equal to gold. Neither has
any capitalist feared that loans would
) o scaled or endangered by changes In
.ho legal standard of values. There-
'ore ' Canada has been comparatively
'roe from distrust nnd the Industrial
stagnation which lack of confidence be-
jots. In every department of material
dovolopnionl this country has long out
stripped the Dominion nnd boon bettor
prepared nnd strengthened for hard
tlinos. Yet wo llnd Canada moving
along In its wonted course , while the
United States are under a cloud of finan
cial distrust and'business depression.
Of course the obvious explanation is in
the bettor money system of our northern
neighbors nnd the object lessen is ono
which may very properly bo commended
to the attention of the people who are
demanding that this country shall go
further along the " "mistaken road on
which it has boon traveling for some
years. The Canadian people may claim
superiority to us in at least one respect
there is no question as to the sound
ness of their monetary system.

There Is nothing like mn object lesson to
open the eyes of tUo people to the working
of n principle. For twenty-live years the
Iowa republicans have been insisting that
southern negroes were entitled by law to
vote as freely as white men , and that this
legal provision settled the question. But
for ton years their own state has had a
law which prohibits the sale of liquor , and
this law Is openly and llagrantly violated in
every city and largo town with the consent
of the local public. At la&t the moro sensi

Suspended , Not Insolvent.
Of the hundred or so of national banks
which have lately closed their doors , nino-
tontha of them are entirely solvent. They
have ample resources to meet all their lia
bilities , but the best of securities cannot bo
convened into money , and they were com
pelled to suspend to protect their assets and
their creditors. Already some of the banks
which suspended have rosnmcd , and it is
entirely safe to say that no more than ono In
ton will fail to resume on an entirely solvent
basis. It is snfo to say , also , that of the few
that will not resume , a majority of thorn
would have been entirely solvent under any
ordinary conditions of business und values.

people will wait till the last of
July to buy a summer suit
May bo they don't may bo
they buy a suit somewhere
and it wears out before July.
They don't get it here. At
any rate we have had quite a run on our summer
suits in the past , probably on account of the pho-
nominally low prices. We never carry over any
suits , even if we do sacrifice on them. Wo are also
making- some extraordinary prices on straw hats
to close out the few we have loft. A $2.50 brown
stiff hat for $1.50.
