cratlc league : Gentlemen I am In receipt
of a letter signed by you In your official ca
paclty , requesting that I announce myself ai
candidate far the United States senate , am
that I state nt the same time the principle :
which will giido ! mo In the event of my elec
tion. I acknowledge with grateful apprccla <
tlon the honor conferred by such a request
c in I tig from an organization representing
as yours does , In my judgment , not only tin
sentiment of a majority of the democratic
party on the silver question , but representing
on that question the best Interests of the
state of Nebraska and of the nation as well
and I fully concur In the opinion expresses
by you that the people should be permitted
to vote directly for their representatives Ir
the United States senate. Since the electloi
of senators by the people Is Impossible untl
the federal constitution Is amended , the near
est approach to popular choice Is provider
by the statute of Nebraska , which reads as
"At the general election Immediately pre
ceding the expiration of the term ot a United
States senator from this state , the elector :
shall , by ballot , express their preference foi
some person for the office of United State :
It Is only fair that those who aspire tc
this high office should openly avow them
selves. In order that the people may selecl
representatives who will carry out theli
wishes In the senatorial contest. In compli
ance with your request I , therefore , announce
my candidacy for the senatorial term begin
ning March 4 , 1S95 , and shall make as thor
ough a canvass of the state as circumstances
will permit. In order that I may meet the
people of the state and defend before them
the principles which have governed mo In the
past and will govern my official conduct Ir
the future , If I continue In the public service.
STATES HIS PLATFORM.
The principles taught by Thomas Jefferson
In the Declaration of Independence lie at the
foundation' ot our form of government , ami
are both an Inspiration and a guide to the
legislator. That all men are created equal ;
that they are endowed with certain unallen-
nblo rights ; that governments arc Instituted
among men to secure these rights ; and that
they derive their just powers from the con-
Bent of the governed these declarations are
as true today as they were when they were
uttered In 177C , and their application to pres
ent conditions would solve aright the dim-
cult problems which confront us today. When
Andrew Jackson said in a state paper ,
"There are no necessary evils In government ;
evils cSlst only In Its abuses , " he * declared
an Important truth. Government Is a ne
cessity and should be a blessing. The main
tenance of law and order Is the Imperative
duty of every citizen , and since his life and
all his property may be demanded for the
defense of the government , It becomes his
first duty to see that the powers of govern
ment are not abused , and that all laws are :
just In principle and equal tn their operation.
The abuses of government arise chiefly from
'Iwo sources : first , from affirmntlvo action
by which s"peclnl privileges nre granted to
favored Individuals , and discriminations made
between citizens equally deserving of the gov
ernment's care ; and , second , from the neg
ative action ot the government In falling to
restrain the strong from oppressing the weak.
It will be my aim , If elected , to net with
those of my own party , and ot every other
party name , who nro striving to repeal the
unjust laws now existing , nnd seeking to se
cure such now legislation as may be neces
sary to protect each citizen In the enjoy
ment of "life , liberty and the pursuit ol
I shall continue to labor for a tarlf ! for
revenue only , more deeply convinced than
over before by my shortexperience in con
gress that a protective tariff , as wo have
known It , Is only a system of legalized spoli
ation , by which the organized few arc able
to plunder the unorganized many for pretended
tended public good.
I shall favor an Income tax as a permanent
part of our fiscal system , preferring a grad
uated tax , but accepting the tax provided
tn the Wilson bill as a step toward the res
toration ot equality In the distribution of the
burdens of government.
Dollcvlng that all unnecessary taxation la
unjust taxation , I shall favor strict economy
in public expenditures.
MONEY THE IMPORTANT QUESTION.
The most Important and far-reaching ques
tion which will confront fhosenator elected
next January \vlll--bo the money question.
In my judgment , It lies at the bottom of the
great Industrial disturbance now prevalent
throughout the world , and no permanent
prosperity can be expected until silver Is re
stored to Its rightful place by the s'de of gold ,
or metallic money Is abandoned entirely. For
reasons which I have stated on former occas
ions , I prefer the rcmonetlzatlon of silver to
the complete demonetization of both ot the
precious metals , and I therefore "favor the
immediate restoration of the free and unlim
ited coinage of gold and silver at the present
ratio of 1C to 1 , without watting for the aid
or consent ot any other nation on earth. "
Relieving that the creation of money Is
an attribute ot sovereignty , I am opposed
to tanning out the right to any private In
dividual or corporation whatever , and , In
case the precious metals do not furnish a
sufficient supply , favor the Issue of full legal
tender paper , redeemable In jcoln
by the general government , In such
quantities that the volume of the
currency , gold , silver and paper to
gether , will bo so adjusted to the needs of
commerce that the dollar will bo stable In Its
purchasing power , and thus defraud neither
debtor not creditor.
I shall also favor such legislation as will
hereafter prohibit the making of contracts
for a particular kind of money. No person
should bo permitted to demonetize by con
tract a nation's money.
The fact that the purchasers ot the bonds
recently Issued ( nnd lssued , as I believe ,
without reasonable excuse ) draw from the
treasury moro than $18,000,000 In gold to pay
for the bonds sold to obtain gold , shows the
Vlclousness ot the policy followed by the
present administration and by the preceding
republican administration , of allowing the
holders ot greenbacks and treasury notes to
demand gold only for redemption. The gov
ernment has , and should exercise , the option
ot paying either gold or silver on all coin
obligations. It the government will exercise
this option In the Interest of the people gen
erally It will not bo necessary to further
burden the taxpayers by Issues of Interest-
bcarlng bonds In time of peace. Until the
government docs exorcise Its right to pay In
Bllver when that U most convenient , It will
be nt the mercy of any band ot conspirators
who may find a pecuniary advantage In de
pleting the gold reserve. No Issue of bonds ,
however great or frequent , can maintain a
gold reserve BO long as the option Is given to
the noteholder and the moneyed Interests
llnd a profit In'tho Increase of our bonded In
PEOPLft SHOULD ELECT SENATORS.
The election of United States senators by
the people U becoming moro and more Im
portant aa great corporations become bet
ter able to atlcct their agents through legis
lative caucuses. No constitution U too sa
cred to bo amended when changed condition ! )
make luch amendment nccassary. Each
generation U capable ot Belt-government , utid
must suit to Ha peculiar needs the machin
ery ot government and the lawn. The house ,
tn this congress and the last , by more than
two-thirds majority , voted to submit such an
imcndment to the itates for ratification.
Thus far the ncnate tmi refused to llitcn tc
the popttUr demand for the direct election
of Itn members. If It shall continue to xtand
tn the way of this reform , I shall favor the
other Alternative , suggested In the conitltu-
tlotl , and urge the submission of such an
amendment by a convention called at the
request of two-thirds ot the states.
I am In favor of an amendment to the con
stitution making the president Ineligible tc
re-election , In order that ho may not b ;
tempted by ambition to use the enormoui
patronage nt his disposal to secure a contin
uance. In office.
I am In favor of a liberal pension pollc )
toward the nation's disabled and needy sol
diers nnd toward their widows and depend
The time has come , In my opinion , for the
operation of the telegraph pystcm by the gov
ernment , In connection with the postal sys-
Dellcvlng that the government which cre
ates Is greater than the creature created , 1
favor the strict control of railroads and ol
nil other public corporations by proper legis
lation , to the end that they may be made tc
carry out the beneficent purpose which called
them Into being. The people of Nebraska
have a special Interest In the dealings 01
the government with the Union Pacific rail
way , and I shall favor the foreclosure of the
government lien on all the Pacific railway ;
and their sale , or the purchase ! and operatlor
ot the same by the government , In order thai
the commerce of Nebraska nnd of other west
ern states may not be burdened by tolls tc
pay Interest on nn exorbitant valuation.
The laborer Is worthy of his hire , and
upon the Independence and prosperity of the
working men upon farms and In shops de
pends the prosperity of the nation , If not , In
deed , Its perpetuity as a nation of freemen ,
I believe that justice cannot be secured be
tween large corporate employers and tholi
numerous employes without legal arbitration
of differences , and If elected to the senate 1
shall favor the application of the principle
of arbitration as far as the federal authority
The platform upon which I was elected In
' 1890 contained these words : "Believing thai
the duty of the representative Is to repre
sent the will and Interests ot his constituents
wo denounce as undemocratic any attempt ,
by caucus dictation , to prevent the congress
man from voicing the sentiments of his people
ple upon every vital question. "
I have been guided by that principle Ir
the past and shall be In the future.
These , gentlemen , are my views , briefly
stated , upon the most Important questions
which arc likely to become the subjects ol
federal legislation during the senatorial term
and by them I am willing to be judged.
The world , social and political , Is today
agitated at seldom before , and I realize the
responsibility assumed by the legislator wh
takes part In the. solution of the great prob
lems now before us. It Is a time when per
sonal ambition Is not to be considered. The
people , the only sovereigns , must settle these
questions according to their best Judgment ,
through servants ot their own selection. I
have no claim upon the people of Nebraska
because of past efforts , for I have only done
my duty as I saw It , and am fully rewarded
If my course has received the approval ol
those who have trusted me with temporary
It the people of Nebraska bellovo that I
can be useful to them as a public servant
and through their representatives' In the state
legislature elect me to voice their sentiments
and protect their Interests In the United
States senate. I pledge to them Industry , hon
esty ot purpose and whatever ability I pos
sess. If some one else Is elected I shall , as
a private citizen , give loyal support to those
officials , regardless of party name , who seek
to make this a "government of the psople ,
by the people and for the people , " by observ
ing the motto , "Equal rights to all and spe
cial privileges to none. "
I acknowledge , gentlemen , my deep Indebt
edness to you for your kind expressions of
confidence , and shall ask your support only
so far as It may be necessary to enable the
people to fully and freely express the.'r choice.
Yours very truly , W. J. BRYAN.

HAYES CENTER. Neb. , Aug. 4. ( Special
to The Dee. ) Hayes county Is coming to be
widely known as the "republican oasis In a
pop desert , " It being the only county Ir
southwest Nebraska that has continuously
given a republican majority and elected re
publican county ofllcers. At the county con

primaries , something unusual In any cam
The democrats and Independents are try

and commissioner but the result would be
the same , the election of the republican can
Hayes county has no candidate for stntc
senator , and It Is understood the delegates
to the senatorial convention will support the
Frontier county candidate , F. M. Ralhbun ,
For representative , J. C. O'Brien has the
Hayes delegation. He was for many years
one of the county commissioners , and Is nn
active campaigner , well posted and a good
speaker , but the probabilities are that Hitch
cock county holds the combination that will
win In the convention , and the candidate ol
the republicans of the Sixty-seventh district
will be Hon. J. W. Cole of Culbertson.
For governor the republicans of the county
are probably about evenly divided between
MacColl and Majors , but the delegates to
the state convention are mum as oysters In
regard to the governorship , because they arc
going to the convention In the Interest
of Judge Abbott for commissioner ot public
hinds nnd buildings. The friends ot Judge
Abbott feel confident of his nomination , nnd
It Is believed all the signs are In his favor.
To him and his paper , the Republican , Is
largely given the credit for the thorough or
ganization and success attendant thereto ,
continuously maintained by the party ever
since the organization of the county. . He Is
serving his second term as county Judge.
Two years ago he was the republican nomi
nee for representative In the Sixty-seventh
district , nnd received moro votes than any
other republlcnn on the ticket save An

The action of Officer Terrlll yesterday
afternoon In arresting Charles W. Thomp
son caused much un favorable comment among
those who witnessed It. Mr. Thompson had
bought some peaches from a fruit vender at
Sixteenth and Farnam streets. Dcforo the
vender had time to wrap them up the of
ficer ordered him to move on , as fruit
sellers are not allowed to halt their carts on
this corner. The peach man asked to bo
allowed to wrap up the fruit ho had sold ,
but thlsl was denied by Terrlll. Then
Thompson made the eamo request , saying
ho had paid for the peaches and asking :
"What Is the rush ? " The officer Im
mediately arrested him for Interference ,
grabbing him by the coat and using much
Impetuous language as he hurried him to
Officer Terrlll Is one ot the officers who
was appointed on the force about May 20.
Ho could not bo found by the reporter last
night and his vcrclon of the affair couldn't
be learned. Sergeant Whalen said last
ulght that ho had met Terrlll a short tlmo
before Thompson was arreeted and had given
him a mild "jacking up" for allowing , fruit
wagons and carts to stop at the corner of
Sixteenth and Farnam streets , as they weru
a nuisance and were annoying people who
had to pass along this busy corner. The
officer started up that way and the sergeant
thinks that ho took what ho said too much
to heart and perhaps acted too hastily.

Tobias Castor was In another ot his non-
communlcattvo moods when approached by
n Bee reporter Friday nt the Paxton ,
and absolutely declined to discuss Anything
that had any bearing upon the political situ
ation. The right-of-way man grew ex
cessively Indignant when the free coinage
league was mentioned , and did not dcclara
that ho know anything about It. Neither
did ho admit that the administration wing ot
the Nebraska democracy was backing
Euclid Martin for the position on the Mis
souri river commission now held by R , S.
Dcrlln. Martin has been freely accused by
the soft money democrats of the state ot
toadying to the administration for the snko
of securing this appointment ,
"Tho true fncts ot the matter arc. " Mr.
Castor did not say , "that Martin Is Indorsed
for this position by the free coinage , nntl-
admlnlslratlon democrats. They arc the
ones who first recommended him for the ap
pointment. You will remember that as soon
as Senator Allen had been elected by a com
bination of populists and demo-populists , the
alleged democratic members ot the legisla
ture got together and divided up the Ne
braska patronage. Lulkhart , one of the antl-
admlnlstratlon democrats , was to bo United
States marshal. George Ames was to bo
government Ulrector of the Union Pacific.
Kuclld Martin was to be the member of the
Missouri River commission. All ot tha
prominent antl-adnilnlstrallon democrats ol
loday were provided with good , fat berths ,
In their minds. Of course , " Mr. Castor did
not continue \\lth a knowing smile , "I elo
not presume to say that the fact that thcso
same anti-administration democrats failed to
get the appointments they selected for tltem-
bclvcs has anything to do with their antago
nism to President Cleveland and his policy
today. That would bo unkind.
"Now , as to Euclid Martin and the Mis
souri river commission , " Mr. Castor did not
proceed. "Martin was recommended by the
fre silver men. Ho never applied for the
place. Thcro was some talk about his hav
ing It. When he visited Washington , soon
after Cleveland had been Inaugurated , Mar
tin and Secretary Morton had a conference
In regard to the matter. Secretary Morton
then told him that If any change was made
that would put Berlin out of the commis
sion the vacancy would In all probability
bo filled by the appointment of a relative
of Vice President Stevenson , who lives In
Sioux City. Mr. Martin said that rather than
to have the place taken away from Omnhn
and given to Sioux City he would prefer to
see Berlin keep It. If the place went to
Sioux City , that town would get the benefit
of any money spent on the Missouri river In
this vicinity. Martin kept still In the Int6r-
csts of Omaha.
"Later In the year , " Mr. Castor/dld not
say , "the matter came up again. This was
when Judge Droadhead was an applicant for
the Missouri place on the commission. It
was conceded that Droadhead was entitled to
the appointment , and he got It. Then Mar
tin and Morton went to Secretary Lamont.
The latter stated that ho would like very
much to see a Nebraska democrat appointed
to succeed Dcrlln , but that he felt assured
that If any change was made the president
would Insist on maintaining the nonparllsan
character of the commission. Then , as a
last resort , the whole matter was laid be
fore President Cleveland. The president left
no doubt In the minds of any ono as to hla
position. He stated that the commission
had first been appointed by President Arthur
on a nonpartlsan basis. Cleveland was
content to leave the commission as It
was when ho flrst came Into office , and con
sequently W. J. Droatch held the pluco for
Boven years. President Harrison made
some changes In the commission , but he still
left It nonpartlsan. President Cleveland
would not establish the precedent of making
the commission a partisan board. If the
democrats of Nebraska wanted a change In
the commission the president was willing to
make It , but the successor to R. S. Berlin
would have to bo a republican.
"That , " said Mr. Castor , as ho did not
end the Interview , "Is the sum nnd sub
stance of the whole matter. Euclid Martin Is
not working to secure the place on the Mis
souri river commission , for he has It from
the president's own lips that ho cannot get
the position. He Is not holding back a
utate convention In order to enhance his
awn political prospects. It Is barely possi
ble that the real secret of the president's
opposition to the appointment of a democrat
to the position now held by Berlin lies la
the fact that Martin was recommended by
the men who are known to bo the bitter
enemies of the administration. I would not
undertake to say that this Is so , " and
utter ho did not say these words Mr. Castor

sumed the newspaper which ho had not been
reading when The Dee reporter did not In
