"We have broken the solid north , while

Klrebrand Tlllman. Who is we ? Is
there to be a new recession movement ?
The reporlH of reviving Industries and

Many enterprises directly affecting

A change of about ' votes might
have given Nevada to McKlnley. This
Is not because the contest In Nevada
was so close , but because there are
only three limes that many voters In

One of tlie llrst ollicial acts of the new

Instead of a fall In prices , McKinley's
election is bringing on a rise In prices
and the silver prophets are as dumFounded -
Founded as when cotton and wheat went
up in September and October , while
sliver was going down.
Delaware's electoral vote may be di
vided and Kentucky's may be also.
Yet the Idea unquestionably prevails
among many intelligent persons that
this electoral vote of each slate must be
east as a unit for a single candidate.

Within f .rty-eiglif hours fifter the
country was assured of McKinley's elec
tion tin. invisible supply of hoarded gold ,
mounting into tin : millions , began to
circulate through the arteries of com
merce. The Impulse given to Industrial
enterprise by the prospective re-estab-
lishmciit of confidence and prosperity at
once made Itself felt In the marts of tin-
world and American products and Amer
ican securities took an upward trend.
Tin- hum of factories and mills that had
been closed for months or years was
again heard In ( lie land and thousands
of idle worklngmeu summoned to re
sume their toll at remunetative wages.
Does any one pretend that such a con
dition would have followed had McKln
ley been "overcome" ? Does , any one
doubt that Instead uf gold pouring into
the banks and Into tin- national tieas-
nry as now , Itryan's election would have
been the signal for a rush of depositors
to withdraw their money from the bunks
and a rush of the bankets to draw the
gold out of the treasury In exchange for
greenbacks' . ' Does any one with a thim
bleful of brains imagine that the defeat
of McKinley would have been followed
by an Increased foreign demand for
American stocks and bonds , an liniii.--
illato reopening of American workshops
and mills , or a tlse In the price of the
products of the farm and factory ?
Thi ! natural and Inevitable conse-
'Utonee ' ot ( h defeat of McKinley mid.
prospective change of our money stand
ard would have been Iho further pros
tration of all business and the forced
lockout of wage workers employed In
productive Industries and the reinforce
ment of the army of the unemployed
by hundreds of thousands of men and
women. These people , exposed to the
rigors of approaching winter , would have
demanded food , shelter and clothing , and
If their wants were not supplied bread
riots would have followed and the coun
try would have been plunged Intoserloii : ,
Internal dlsoider bordering on civil war.
These dangers have been happily
averted. For all that the men allllcted
with goldophobla still persist in conjur
ing up a conspiracy of tlie money clmn-
irers against the welfare of the human
i ace. They see themselves pursued by
the gold standard snakes night and day
ind probably can never be cured of their
If the gold standard were really a con
spiracy of ( lie money power why does
lie money power employ millions upon
iillllous In developing and working the
.rold mines of the worldV If there Is a
'old standard conspiracy among the
money changers why arc lhce money
hangers constantly engaged in enor
mously increasing tlie volume of gold
Instead of making gold scarce by cur
tailing Its production ? More gold Is be
ing mined now than ever before In the
history of the world. It Is an Indis
putable fact that the gold output of the
last live years Is nearly . " 0 per cent
greater limn was the gold output of tlie
twelve years of the great California gold
excitement. At the rate gold is now'be-
Ing mined the increase in the world's
supply for the ten years ending 1MH ! >
will exceed $ l..r. . H > , < ) ( )0.Ni ) ( ( ) . or more than
line-sixth of the world's present gold
supply , accumulated since the dawn of
history. In the face of these facts the
continuation of ( he cry of a gold stand
ard conspiracy Is puerile as well as pre
dint roitiwix nKii.irioxs.
Some newspapers are already tender
ing advice as to what should be the
foreign policy of the next administra
tion and all of this advice is not of a
strictly conservative character. H Is
urged by responsible and more or less
iullticntlal Journals that steps should
be taken to annex Sandwich Islands.
Wo do not believe these papers repre
sent the dominant sentiment of the re
publican party in tills matter , notwith
standing the declaration of tlie national
platform that , the Hawaiian Islands
should be controlled by the United
States. That this government should
not permit any foreign power to Inter
fere with those Islands is a proposition
that men of all parlies will acquiesce
in , but tills does not Imply that we
should annex them , or oven formally
lake them under our protection. Foreign
nations fully understand our position
toward Hawaii and no Interference Is
to be apprehended , so that It is unneces
sary for tlie security of the Sandwich
Islands that we annex them and It has
never been shown that we could gain
anything by doing so that woultl
Justify so radical a departure from
established policy. Wo have no doubt
that a large majority of the thoughtful
and conservative people of the country
are averse to the acquisition of remote
In regard to Cuba , It Is urged that If
the conlllct there Is not settled by ( he
time H now administration comes into
powti it .dumld accord recognition to
the Insurgents. There Is said to be a
feeling of fear In Spain that Major Me-
Kluley's sympathy with tlie Ciibuns
will have unhappy results and such
counsel of American newspapers as we
have noted will tend to aggravate this
feeling. There Is no probability that
the Cuban Insurrection will be ended
by next March , but there Is no reason
to expect that the conditions at tUat
time will bu any more favorable to the
Insurgents than at present. If the pres
cut administration Is right In the poul
tlon It occupies toward that conlllcl.
and we think this Is tin- general opin
ion , then unless there Is a great change
lit the situation there the next adminis
tration will probably deem It wise to
continue the policy so far pursued. It
would obviously be a great mistake for
It to Invite possible grave International
complications at the very outset , when
then- are domestic matters of the
highest Importance to be dealt with.
Nobody need be apprehensive , how
ever , that Major McKlnley will as presi
dent adopt a course In regard to our
foreign relations not entirely consistent
with tlie traditional policy of the gov
ernment. He has never indicated any
sympathy with tlie spirit of jingoism
nml he Is not likely to do so after he
has assumed tlie great responsibilities
of tint presidency. American rights
and Interests everywhere will lie
guarded and maintained under his ad
ministration and we conlideiilly be
lieve that the foreign policy of the na
tion , adhered to since the foundation
of the government , will not be departed
The St. Louis platform declared In re
gard to the tariff : i'We are not pledged
to any particular schedules. The question
of rales is a practical question , to be
governed by the conditions of the time
ami of production : the ruling and un
compromising principle Is tlie protection
and development of American labor and
Industry. " This attitude of ( lie repub
lican party was endorsed by Its candi
date for the presidency In his letter of
acceptance and It Is safe to say that It
will guide the course of the republicans
In congress and administration in
dealing with the tariff.
Although the question of protection
was subordinated in the presidential
campaign , it was by no means lost sight
of. Creat numbers of woritlngmen In the
manufacturing states were iiilluenced by
It to support the republican ticket. Many
farmers In the eastern and middle west
ern states also regarded it as no less
important than the currency quvstiun.
It had Its effect in determining the course
of a very large number of business men
east and west. The overwhelming pro
test that was made two years ago
against the democratic tariff was still
potent with most of those who made It.
It cannot be denied , theiefore , that while
a subordinate Issue protection was still
an issue in the , campaign and exerted a
very considerable Inlluence for repub
lican success. The people expect the vic
torious party to carry out the pledge of
Its platform In respect to this principle
ami to give the country such a jndlclotu
llscal system as will at once provide the
government with needed revenue and
afford proper protection to the Industrie.x
and labor of the country.
The 'republican house of the present
congress enacted an emergency revenue
bill which it was estimated would pro
duce Niilllctent revenue for tin- Immedi
ate needs of the government. It was de
feated In the senate by a combination
of free silver republicans .with the dem
ocrats. The treasury dellclency has ,
steadily Increased and unless Importa
tions grow to an enormous extent It will
continue to Increase. It Is urged that
the house should pass another emer
gency bill as soon as practicable after
convening and it is possible this will lie
done , but there Is small probability that
It could pass the senate , or if it did that
It would receive the approval of Piesl-
dent Cleveland. Some of the silver slat"
' .cimtors who opposed such legislation at
the llrst session might lie induced to sup
port it now , but the administration can
hardly be expected to regard the result
of the election as In any sen < e n victory
for protection. Mr. Cleveland may safely
be counted on to adhere to his opposi
tion to any increase of tariff duties.
Thai being ( lie case there is no hope of
any change in the llscal policy during
tlie term of the present administration.
What will be the duty of tlie succeed
ing administration ? Obviously to call
congress in special session as soon as
practicable for the purpose of revenue
legislation and it seems to be understood
that this will be done. It will not be
necessary at such a session to make a
general revision of the tariff. That Is a
matter for careful and deliberate consid
eration , giving all interests a full and
fair chance to be beard. Hut treasury
dellelts must be stopped as soon as pos
sible under the new administration and
all danger of further bond issues
averted. The country expects this , it is
practicable and under a republican ad
ministration It will be accomplished
without causing any disturbance to bus
iness. That done , congress can In regu
lar session lake up the work of revising
the tariff , "governed by the conditions
of the time and of production , " lint keep
ing in view the ruling and uncompro
mising principle of the protection and de
velopment of American labor and in
7 n'.i.v.s ruTt'iii : MISSIOX.
The late popociallc candidate for the
presidency has given It out that his
future mission will be to give Ne
braska laws that will prohibit and pre
vent the coercion of workingmen by
Iheir employers. In this , as In oilier
matters relating to legislation , the de
funct recalls forcibly his striking re
semblance to necessity , which is said to
know no law.
Mr. llrymi is evidently unaware of
the fact that Nebraska has already on
Its statute books laws against the
bribery or coercion of voters , as also
laws prohibiting trusts and Illegal com
binations to raise prices of commodi
ties. Section n,7Sl of Cobbey's Crimi
nal Code provides that "Any person who
shall by bribery attempt to Inlluence
any elector of this state In giving his
vote or ballot , or who shall use any
threat to procure any elector to vote con
trary to the Inclination of such elector
or deter him from giving Ids vote or bal
lot , shall be lined In any sum not ex
ceeding $ r > oo and be Imprisoned in the
county jail not more than Mix months. "
IJy this law It will lie noted every case
of bribery , coercion or Intimidation
subjects the offender to both line and
Imprisonment and If any large employer
of labor should be convicted of whole
sale coercion his lines would run Into
the thousands and thousands of del
lars and Id * , t'rm , of Imprisonment
might run hitiniycars and yemv.

and his campaign managers. So far as
anti-coercion legislation Is concerned ,
therefore. Nebraska offers Mr. Hryan no
Held for his sulf-imposed mission. It Is
not. new laws that are needed , but otll-
cers who will enforce the laws we have.
The newly elected populist and dem
ocratic stale otllcers will have several
serious problems to meet when they
take their places In the state house.
They will be on trial before the people
and cannot expect to retain popular
confidence unless they discharge their
duties honestly ami capably. Tin- pop
ulists of Nebraska have never gone to
tlie extremes that have marked popu
lism In Kansas , Colorado and other
states and they may be confidently ex
pected to try to retain their reputation
for conservatism.

Jones has made u greater number of uhsiird ,

Louisville Courier-Journal ( dem. ) : The

tnled" by powerless agltntors.
Chicago Tlmes-Hernld ( rep. ) : Senator Dan
iel's pronunclamonto that Hryan's defeat will
not end the agitation of free silver was all
well enough as a pre-election piece of
bravado a sort of whistling to keep the
courage up but when a national Issue has
once been settled by the American people ,
has In cfTect been stamped with their illsap-
proval , no demagogue or agitator , no mat
ter who he Is , can resurrect It.
Globe-Democrat ( rep. ) : A kind of spasmodic
medic agitation may bo kept up , but an
other crusade like the one Just ended Is an
Impossibility. The opportunity of succcess
that came last Tuesday was heller lhan
any that can be expected to follow It , ami
it lacked n. good deal of being what was
desired. All things considered , therefore ,
the oullook for free sllveriam Is decidedly
discouraging , not to say hopelessly gloomy.

of over being anything else.
Haltlmoro Sun ( dem. ) : The majority
against the frco coinage of silver is so
large and so decisive that the agitation for
the debasement of the national currency
may now bo expected to cease. Krce > coin
age Is shown by the event to be bad poll-
tics. It is not a vote winner. It has no
prospect of success. The politicians , Ihere-

with whom the agitation originated. The

Chicago Chronicle : With a breadth of
appreciation of the fitness of things notable
oven In him. Mr. Cleveland postponed the
Issuance of n proclamation ordering a day
of public thanksgiving until the day after
thn election. It Is rarely poaslblo to say
what "might have been" had some partic
ular detail In the evolution of events been
different , but It is entirely K.ifc to assume
that this whole proclamation Is tndiibltablo
proof that the people have had an excellent
president at the cost of depriving themselves
of the ministrations of n llrst-clas parson.

lamation may not arouse n burst of rejoic
ing from BI mo citizens who recently exer
cised the prerogatives of ritl/enshlp , but
it is Impossible to doubt thu fervency of
the author. It appears that Mr. Cleveland
began to grow more and more thankful
along about last Tuesday evening until

Is particularly grateful for "every deliver

to "acknowledge with contrllc hearts tholr
