It's easy enough to cry coercion , butte
to coerce a voter who doesn't want to

If Forecaster Welsh expects to hold on
under the coming republican administra
tion it will be well for him to put up n
good article of sound money republican
weather on election day.
Vote for the best men for city council
and school board. The republican nom
inees are on the whole superlur to their
opponents nnd are always entitled to
the lu-nellt of the duubt.
Why should Mr. Hryan's paper be
more anxious to elect Frank Kaiisom , the
so-culled silver republican candidate for
state senator , than nny one else on the
fusion legislative ticket ?
Mexican dollars are quoted In the

Itryan's paper talks about Mryan "try-
Ing to elude the crowd" to explain his
chilly reception on again setting foot
on Nebraska soil. That Is decidedly
rich when Bryan has been doing nothing
for months but trying to Uml the crowd.
Democrats sire urged to vote for .Judge
Dullle for congress because Dave Mer
cer ha.s left no stone unturned to defeat
Itryan. That Is Just the reason every
friend of sound money , republican or
democrat , should vote for .Mercer anil
against Dtttlle.
The attempt of a local fake mill to In-
jeel Into the campaign the controversy
between the opposing schools of medl-

The doctors , like all other thinking men ,
are for sound money regardless of pro
fessional differences.
Frank Hansom counts on carrying the
Third ward on his promise that he will

to sign a bill.
Don't l > L lieve any story to the effect
that republican legislative candidates

only legislation we have regulating In

legislatures. The best way to protect
that legislation Is to make sure that

Dave Mercer's manly determination to

The choice of the voter In Nebraska
on candidates for president lies lyetweeu
the nominee of the republican pnrly ,
William MeKluley. who Htauds for
sound money , protection nnd the preser
vation of the national credit , nnd the
pnpocratle nominee , William .1. Iryau.
who stands for depreciated silver money ,
repudiation of debts nnd national dis
honor. Then- no possible chance that
the electoral votes of Nebraska can go
to any other presidential candidate.
The friends of sound money , therefore ,
should make their votes tell. The way
to make their votes tell Is to mark their
ballots for the republican electors In
stead of throwing their votes away on
men who have not the ghost of a chance
to In' elected nnd who do not expect to
b ; > elected.

Will Omaha stand by Omaha ? The
people of Omaha have more at stnRe In
the present election than the people of
any other part of Nebraska. The people
of Omaha have more at stake In the
present election than the people of any
other city In the United States. I'pon
the outcome of the present election of
president and congress depends the
prosperity of Omaha for the Immediate
future more than that of any other
place In ( he country.
Omaha hopes to present to the world
In .lune. 1SOS. a great exposition of the
resources and products of the trans-
mlssNslppI region. Unless , however.
McKlnley and Mercer are elected n
Transmlsslsslppl Exposition In the year
1S ! S will become an utter Impossibility.
Only nineteen months remain till the
day set by congress for the opening of
the exposition nnd to complete the work
mapped out will require every moment
of the lime. Should I'.ryan triumph
all business will be unsettled for an
Indefinite period. It will be an absolute
Impossibility to raise the funds neces
sary to defray the expenses of so huge
an enterprise. The exposition. If not
altogether abandoned , will have "io be
postponed to some remote future
The fate of the exposition involves
the fate of a dozen great projects for
Omaha's advancement. Insure the ex
position nnd the union depot problem Is
solved at once. With an exposition In

other hand , the defeat of McKlnley and
sound money would make It as Impos

depot purposes as for the exposition

position. The railroads could not build
u new depot If they wanted to so long
as the money market was demoralized
and no estimates on future earnings re
With the assurance of the exposition
by the restoration of business conll-
denco will come' the construction of
two or three metropolitan hotels to ac
commodate visitors in IS'.lS. With It
will come .extensions of our water
works system , our street railway , our
gas and electric lighting plants. All
the public Improvements In the shape
of replacing wornout pavements , com
pleting our sewerage system , Improving
the public parks , hinge on the outcome
of tint election. Destroy all credits by
endorsing a scheme for debt-scaling and
repudiation and no new municipal bonds
can be sold for months and years to
come. Public works must come to n
standstill and labor be denied employ
h-t Omaha and Nebraska speak out
In no uncertain tones for McKinley and
sound money and we shall witness a
revival of prosperity by the tlipe the
president Is Inaugurated such as we
have never seen before. Active work
will be begun on the exposition , prep
arations for a union depot will be under
way. hotels and new buildings by tin-
score will be projected and plans laid
for the early expenditure of hundreds
of thousands of dollars on public Im
provements of various kinds. Can tin-
people of Omaha afford to neglect such
an opportunity ? We believe they will
answer an almost unanimous "No" at
the ballot box.

When the smoke of the political battle
shall have cleared away and the public
attention can be directed to some other
question than that of the currency , the
matter of more revenue for the govern
ment is likely to receive greater con
sideration than has been accorded it dur
ing the campaign. Indeed , for the past
three months It has received scarcely
any attention from the people. The
republican presidential candidate has
frequently referred to it as a question of
commanding Importance , but It has been
utterly Ignored by the opposition , for the
obvious reason that It could not be ills-
cussed without disclosing the utter In
adequacy of the present economic
system. Yet each month has recorded n
livasury deliclt , that for Ottob.'innun.nt -
Ing to
This condition of affairs can
not be allowed to go on indefinitely. The
necessity of providing sufllclent revenue
to enable the government to meet Us
current -expenditures Is Imperative. The
credit of the government Is dependent
upon it. There will probably be nothing
done by the present congress. The same
inllncncc that thwarted the effort of the
house at the llrst session to provide more
revenue will dominate the senate and
defeat any further attempt , should It
be made. In this direction. Iteslde.s , It is
by no means certain that If revenue
legislation should pass congress It would
receive the approval of the administra
tion , unless it were on administration
lines , which Is not to be expected from a
republican house. It Is safe to say ,
therefore , that monthly dullclts will con-
tlntio to bo lite rule during the term of
the Cleveland administration.
It will be the duty of the succeeding
administration , whoever shall bu electei
president , to call congress In spi > cla
session as soon as possible to consldei
this question of providing more rove
line. It Is understood that In the event
of the election of Major MeKluley this
will be done nnd should the house of
representatives to bo elected today bo
republican there Is little doubt that
wenue legislation could be enacted.
Therel.s reason to believe that some of
the senators who blocked such legisla
tion In the Interest of sliver would yield
n the fai-e of n sound money victory ,
mrtlcttlurly If It sliould be so over
whelming as the supporters of sound
noney hope for. On the other hand ,
u the event of the election of Mr.
Itrynn , with a house adverse to Ids
urreney policy , it l.s questionable
whether he would call congress in
ipec-lnl session to consider the revenue ,
lie hns not indicated that lie has any
merest In that subject and especially
sl'ouhl the house be republican , as there
semis not the least doubt It will be ,
U would be hardly possible that nny
igreement as to revenue legislation
ould be reached between the executive
mil legislative branches of the gov-
rnmeiit. In that case two things
would be assured n silver basis , with
ill Its disturbing effects , nnd the bank-
uptcy of the national treasury , of
" a Mryan administration would
ntve authority to borrow under exist-
ng law. but would It be able to borrow
when the country had gone to a silver
msls ami tlnanclal disorder prevailed ?
" "mild It sell bonds even for silver tin
ier such conditions , at the highest
ate of Interest now prescribed by law ?
rhat it would have dillicitlly In doing
so there can bno , doubt.
Obviously , therefore , this question of
H'ovldlng more revenue Is not the lea , t
inportant Involved In today's election.
It will not prove troublesome In the
eveiit of republican success , but other
wise l ! Is likely to become a matter of
very grjive concern.

A statement regarding ihe foreign
rade of Cnnnda shows our northern
lelghbor made notable progress last
vcar In both exports and imports. This
s so unusual a fact In recent yrar.s an
o be worthy of passing attention , sine ?
the American people cannot but enter
tain ti more or les- ) lively Interest In
Oanadlan commercial affairs. We have
10 reason to fear any serious rivalry
from that soiim- . but the trade of the
Dominion Is a factor in the commerce of
North America which we ought not to
AI > altogether Indifferent to.
An intending feature of the statistics
s that the exports to the Hilled
States declined , while the imports
from the I'lilted States increased ,
but Canada still found a market here
for her products to the amount of < s : ; < i.-
MO.MH ) ( ) and as this was largely made
up of agricultural commodities which
came into competition with our own. the
imoitnt is quite as large as Is desirable.
The present tariff law Is much mor
favorable to the Canadian producers
than was the law It superseded anil the
farmers on our northern border have
Mtfferod no inconsiderable loss from th-
competition. They will take the oppor
tunity today to protest against this and
if the republican party Is again given a'
chance to revise the tariff these Ameri
can farmers will not be neglected. Ca

The reports that the government will

have no substantial foundation. We are
not aware what Herman law would
permit to be done in such a case , but It
would seem safe to assume that the gov

mistake to do so and It might be a
dangerous mistake , for lUsinurdc still

Hi-member that Nebraska contains no
silver mines and that It has nothing to

were full of silver mines there might
be some plausible excuse for Us people
to cast wistful glances at free silver , but
as It Is there is no cxciisn whatever for
any one In this state wanting to double
the millions of the silver millionaires at

The United States experimented In
free coinage of silver on private ac
count when 11 coined trade dollars of
IK ! grains for every one offering the
sliver bullion. P.ut the trade dollar ,
though heavier than the standard silver
dollar , passed only for Its bullion value
and never came Into domestic circula
tion. The government had finally to
recoln the trade dollars at no little
expanse and without benellt to tin- pub
lic. In trade dollar times the silver

a dollar. With silver at ( > r > cent an

Nebraska hits eight presidential elec

electoral vote' each voter must make
eight cross marks , one nfter the name
of each of the candidates for elector
designated republican. One cross after

crosses If the voter's choice is to be
made fully effe.elive.
As we remarked several times
before. Nt-ln-aska needs to be counted In
the McKlnley oluinii a great deal more
than McKinley needs Nebraska. The
ivpudlallun of Bryan and ids free silver
repudiation doctrine by Nebraska means

Wo have no such apprehensions. Its prin

The descent of this country to n silver
basis would deal a acrlous blow to American
credit In the money markets of the world ,
and the recovery of our llnanclal standing
abroad would bo n slow process , during
which important American enterprises
would be checked. Nations do not live
unto themselves alone In financial matter * ! ,
notwithstanding the advantages which
Mr. llryan pretends to have discovered
In the Isolated action of the United States
aj to the free nnd unlimited colnngo of
both gold and silver at the legal ratio of
1C to 1. "without waiting , for the aid or
consent of any other nation. " .Mr. Hryiui
has rung the changes on the currcnc }
plank of the Chicago plutform in hla
rhetorical outbursts , and doubtless some
of his Impnaslhlc hearers have pcrsdadcd
themselves that It would be highly bene
ficial If thu United States should part
company with other great trading countries
In dealing with the white metal. Mr.
llryan han hern upholding a policy of Iso
lation In this rcupcct , and has apparently
given no htatesmurillkc eonsldnratlou to
the danger of Impairing American credit
by taking the United ? tutcs out of Ihe
ranks of the gold standard nations. A
distinctively "American" policy with re
spect to every Issue Is very neductlvo to
certain minds , but wo cannot sever the ties
of trade nnd business which our pre.sunt
monetary standard has established with
foreign nations without KcrloUKly Injuring
our Intorestfl.
Iho domund for American secnritlcu
abroad has been of Immense assistance in
dcveloolni ; our railway systems and fosterIng -
Ing other American projects. Mr. Ilrynn
and his followers , fur the uukiof promot
ing the ono Interest , silver , are willing ti <
risk the sacrifice of this foreign coiitldenci
In American UlulitrtaUngH. nnd to ght
pauao to enterprises which depend , more
or lean , upon the Inclination of foreign
capitalists to Invent la thorn. Millions of
dollam have been paid by foreigner !
In premiums to American llfo n-
JUTAIICO companies , In the prosperity
of which million * of the citizens of the
t'nltiHl ' States nro nlso vitally concerned.
If the country , contrary to present Indica
tion * , nhoulil RO on n silver basis , the hold
ings In these useful Institutions , measured
by the slnndard under which the pre
miums were paid , would be seriously di
minished. The wrong thus Inflicted upon
foreign policy holders , many of t"pl11
Canadians , our nc-ir neighbors , would IIP
oven morp reprehensible than that visited
upon the citizen | > olley holders , for I IIP
rrnson that the fon-lgn Investors could
not pronounce against the- swindle by po

The patriot Is over Jealous of his coun

country to tin- citizens of the fulled States
would be resented here In tinmost
dcclfilvo nnd formidable manner. Nations

much less mihstantlnl grounds of dispute.
The coming election. It Is confidently be
lieved , will show the world that this
nation Intends to keep Us plighted faith
not only with Us domestic creditors , but
with the foreigners who Invo reposed Im
plicit confidence In American honor. The
fnltod States has declared by congres
sional action that It Is the "established
policy" of the country to maintain gold
nnd silver on n parity with each other.
This pledge must bo kept.
