A. Myers , legislative candidate
on the republican ticket. Is a young
attorney ambitious to make a good
record for himself at Lincoln. He has
never held public olllee before. Doug

their benefit as their representative In

Is thoroughly familiar with the affairs
of tlie city. The fact that he Is the re
publican candidate should only conduce
toward making his majority bigger.
llrynn is no longer denying that he Is
attempting to ride a sectional issue.
The tables of elector * ! ! votes which his
managers have given out are all divided
by the line that , divides the country
geographically. The appi-als In In-half
of the popocratle candidate are all to
class against class and section against
section. The wider patriotism that sees
the whole country Is represented only
by the republican candidate.
The olllee of county attorney is one
of the mos Important local olllces to be
filled this year. The county attorney Is
not only the legal adviser of all the
county olllcers , but also the prosecuting
attorney In all criminal cases. The posi
tion requires an attorney of both ability
and experience. County Attorney Hal-
drlgehas conducted the county's legal
business cntlsfactorlly during the past
two years and will continue to do so for
two years more.

All the wheels of Industry are not at
standstill. All departments of busi
ness are not absolutely stagnant. Of
the " . ( XKUKtf ) or sntxMHl ) ( of wage
earners not less than Iwo-thltds are em
ployed. Coii'ldt'iico Is not utterly de
stroyed. The wealth of the nation , If

not illmtiiKhlngT Most of our people
are still able to obtain the necessaries
of life ami lo meet their obligations.
The country has suffered severely -how
Mpvercly Is almost beyond computation
but II Is not ruined. It Is In a position
to rapidly recover If right principles
prevail ; otherwise It mint experience
gieater disaster than It has ever yet
It ought to be apparent to every In
telligent man who can understand the
slgnlllcanee of existing conditions that
the success of the assault on our mone
tary standard would Inevitably produce
I he most violent disturbance. Capital
would shun every sort of enterprise ,
manufacturing Industilcs now In opera
tion would stop , in every department of
business there would be curtailment ,
amf Instead of two-thirds of the labor
of the country being employed ,
probably not more than one-
thlril ' would find work. I'araly-
sis would precede readjustment
to the new basis. In the universal tils-
order the failure of banks and mer
chants and manufacturers would mul
tiply , while Impoverishment nmoiig tin-
masses of the people would enormousl.v
Increase. The rich would lose , but the
privation and sulTcrhig would fall upon
the poor , upon those who have nothing
but th < ilr labor. The corporation. '
against which Hie free sllverltes r.ill
might hi- hurl , bat the Injury to then :
would be trilling In comparison with
that Inllleted upon the millions of wage
workers who would be deprived of em
ployment. The bankers who are si
heartily hated by the advocates of frei
silver could not escape the effect of
panic and disaster , but they would not
suiter tn the degree the producers
woiilil. A change In our monelao
system cannot be made without a com
pleti > readjustment of financial am
business conditions and this Involves
Infinitely greater danger lo labor thai
It tloes to capital. The one requires'
constant employment to llve _ ; the othei
may He Idle for n time and still survive
It Is thus perfectly obvious that bai
as the existing conditions are a worst
slate of affairs Is possible , and tlm
Ibis will be renll/.ed if the free sllve
cause is successful no man can doub
who has an intelligent appreciation o
what Is foreshadowed by prevailing con
illtIons. Some CM-IISC may be fount
for those who are unemployed thliikliV-
tluit a change from our monetary slant !
Mril might better their condition. ( Mr
ctnustances make them peculiarly sus
ceptlb'.e ' to any promise of relief , how
ever vague. Hut It Is dllllcnlt to nndei
stand how men who are at work cai
favor a departure Hint would eiidange
their employment and Inevitably reduc

Kx'-Presldent Harrison has begun a
speaking tour of Indiana. The most
trustworthy Information gives good as
surance that the state will give Its *
electoral vote to the republican ticket
and this ought to be made absolutely
certain by ( Jeneral Harrison's tour
for no man In Indiana has greater In-
lli'cnce with the people and particularly
the farmers. IJe has manifested a
mo-it hearty interest In the campaign
and his contributions to it have main
tained his fame as a public speaker
nml as an able exponent of republican
When talking politics General Harri
son always says something worth read
ing and remembering. He told one of
tils audiences on Tuesday that for n
quarter of a century the democrats hail
been preaching that things should be
cheapened that thu farmer and the la-
uiau ought to tut wuut they
iitve to buy at less cost and thai In
rder that they might do Ihls It wai :
icccssary to abandon the republican
arlff policy. Now the democrats have
hanged position and are urging that
vhat Is needed ait1'higher prices. Thin
< the naked truth. Knnii the time a
rolecllve tariff was enacted In ISill
own lo IS- ! ' the democntltr party con-
tiinlly assailed II as Imposing an tin-
list burden upon the farmer ami the
vorkliigiuan tint ! they finally persuaded
i majority of the people that such wan
ho cast * . They were given oppor-
unity lo revise the tariff and the re-
lilt Is known to everybody. Things
vero cheapened , but to whose advan-
age. Certainly not to the American
vorklngman and farmer , for the former
est In worl ; and wages and the latter
n a diminished home demand for lib
iroducts. Kludliig It Impossible to tie-
end this policy the men who are re-
pouslble for It now appeal to the pen-
) ! i > to support them in n scheme to raise
irlces by debasing thel'iirreney. Hav-
tig struck n blow to protection with
llsastrous consequences to the Indnu-
rles and labor of the country , they
> w ask the people to give them oppor
vnlly to strike down the monetary
standard , In order to make higher
lees for everything , except labor.
1'ut there Is excellent assurance that
In- people will not be fooled this year
i they were four years ago. The men
who misled them then will not be al-
ouvil to do so now. The republican
tarty will be restored to power anil
will bring with It a return of those
'oiiditlons ' under which the country
'nji-ycd ' Its greatest prosperity.

Th : approval of the long-standing dls-

Ire for live years , UUCP different city
'iiglneers have refused to certify to its
orrectness. It was several times vetoed
i.v Mayor I'emls anil his vetoes were

Ihought it had an honest claim against

ense ( hat a compromise has bt > en agreed
on by remitting a small portion of the
Interest alleged to be due Is only a
sop Intended to befog the public mind.
It ought to be laid down as a general
i nip of practice for the city that no
disputed bill contracted under one ad
ministration where the contractor lm >
failed to adjust the matter under that
administration should be allowed by
a succeeding mayor nml council with
out first proving It In court. Till ,
would be no more than fair precau
tion to protect the taxpayers from
Jobs and steals. In the present In
stance tinIlarber claim dates back to
1S1U during the term of Mayor dish
ing. Thin part repeatedly rejected
by Mayor llemls Is In reality outlawed
and was permitted to become outlawed
because It had no foundation In fact.
The remainder of the claim Is a legacy
of the I'emls administration , by which
It was more than once branded as un
earned and exorbitant. For the pres
ent council lo go back of what Its
predecessors have tlono and say that
the city was wrong from the first In
ill-dining to pay what It did not owe ,

ruder tlie election laws of Nebraska
every voter In every city of the metro
politan class Is entitled to have diii-
notice by proper publication before each
day of registration of the locations of
the registration booths , the hours when
the registrars sit and the boundaries of
the voting precincts. The Intent of the
law Is to enable every voter to regl.ster
In the proper precinct and he can nettle
tlo this unless lie Is Informed of the
boundaries of the different precincts.
I'p to the present year the law has
been strictly carried out. This year ,
however , City Attorney Council advises

The iiniC'lhm of compounding the legal
rate of ponnlty Interest on delinquent
taxes is a.Ijf'jl practice. It Is rank dis
crimination' favoritism. There Is
no more reason why one properly owner

have part of his obligation relinquished
than why all should. Such action on
the part of the council Is nothing short
of open encouragement to tax shirkers.

There Is a flavor of hypocrisy and n whole
volume of demagogy In the statement madr
by tlryan at Lima. O.Yo who believe In
the money of the constitution are for n
sounder money than those who want to
change1 our currency Into pounds , shillings
and pence. " Thcro Is no "money of the con
stitution. " That venerated Instrument
authorizes congress to borrow money , to
coin money and regulate tbe value thereof ,
and forbids any state makltiR "anything
but gold and sliver coin a legal tender In
the payment of debts. " nut It doesn't , even
by Implication , Invest gold or silver or any
other metal with the Inherent quality of
money. Neither does any man In this
country "want to change our currency Intc
pounds , shillings and pence. " This figure
of Jingo rhetoric is borrowed from the tariff
sbrickers of the past.

The most exhaustive researches can enl >
result in mere firmly establishing Hit
uniip.10 position of productive labor as tin
standard of all commercial value , a posi
tion It has always held and will ever hold ,
though unrecognized by legal enactment *
or the decrees of potentates. The only
icason why 23.20 grains of line gold arc
worth $1 Is that , on the average. It costs ,
In productive labor , $1 to mlno and trans
port 23.20 grains of tlno gold to the. mint ,
It Is productive labor that establishes the
value , instead of , gold and silver establish
ing the value of productive labor. So lonp
as productive labor Is content to mine 23.2C
grains of flno gold at wages paid , that will
bo the value of a dollar. As to silver , pro
ductive labor Is' now satisfied to mlno ovci
700 grains for the wages formerly paid tc
mine 1171.25 grains , making It worth about
half Its formtT'tfrlec. No legal enactment
or dcmagogue'ry. or sophistry , can change
Its present valtiffSo long as the flat of pro
ductive labor remains as It Is.

It Is fortunate for the people of this coun
try that nhumlnnt harvests will enable them
to supply any demand for wheat mid eorn
that can be made upon them nml that the
American farmer will be likely to receive
for his produce a more rcmimeratlvo price
than ho has been able to get for several
Chicago Tribune : There Is no mystery , no
perplexity about this rise In prices , lie-
ports from nearly all the agricultural dis
tricts of Kttrnpu , Asia , and South America
announce bad crops. Argentina is short of
cereals , India Is lo be a heavy Importer , Hie
same cry comes from nearly all the usually
heavy producers , nml the only possible re
sult happens the price goes up. The supply
Is short , thp demand Is normal , and the
price goes up the flMt primer lesson IK

and still rising nnd other crops In demand
at advancing prices and with nbumlant crops ,
the farmers of the country are not going
to be convinced that they nru ruined or
the subjects of grinding extortion on the
part of anybody. Providence nnd the wheat
markH do not seem to smile on Hryanlsm
and cnlamlty howling this year.
New York World : Within the past six
weeks the price of wheat has advanced 20
cents n bushel In the Chicago market. Upon
a crop -150,000,000 bushels the average
for the last three years this would mean
an additional value of $ UO.OOO.OOO In this
crop nlone since the presidential campaign
got hot. Kven the Blight advance of ii cents
on corn means n gain of $7fi,000.ono on Hie
rop. and the lesser advance on nnts scores
J2.ri,000.000. ThereIs logic as well as
eloquence la these figures They dis
prove the hair-brained theory that
the prlco of farm products de
pends upon the price of silver , for as the
grains have gone up silver has gone down.
The logic of i-vents has knocked out the fal

Now Ynrk World : No truer , wiser , abler
or sadder words of warning have summed
up this strange and melancholy craze than
those used by Aichblshop Ireland In his
recent innsterly review. Charitably ami
touchlngly he says : "America heretofore
has been free from socialistic hatred and
\varfar3j It has been a country of oppor
tunities for all men. and It has given to the
laborer a livelihood higher and better than
Is afforded him In any other country of the
world. Is this all to be changed ? Is social
chaos , gloating over ruins , to bo the method
of social elevation of the masses ? *
I have come to look upon thu present agi
