LINCOLN , Oct 13. ( Special. ) The list
of defaulting popocratlc county treasurers
printed In The Uec yesterday morning Is
causing dismay In the ranks of the fusion
offlcchuntcrs who were going over the state
with the plea that they were all honest and
the republicans were all thieves. And now
that the public I * awakening to the state
of corruption existing among the "reform
ers , " evidence la coming In to show that
the printed list Is far from complete. It
seems that when n , 'reformer" got elected
treasurer of a county ho gobbled up the
public funds with the same readiness that
has characterized Holcomb's assault on the
houflo rent fund ,
Ono remarkable popocratle shortage oc
curred In Mcrrlck county , the home of Sec
retary Porter , the great "money eavcr. "
A fusion treasurer In that county "saved"
$31,000 belonging to the county , and while
no part of the shortage has been made
good the defaulting treasurer Is still fol
lowing In the footsteps of the Immaculate
Frank Hilton , and Is shouting for "Porter
and reform. " The chances are that Porter
will not mention the rotten record of the
fusion party In his own county as he swings
around the circle on his pass-propelling
campaign tour , but the people of Merrlck
county who pay their taxes and who have
to shoulder the additional burden made by
the popocratlc defaulter , are apt to remem
ber the matter In a substantial way on
election day. Porter rides around over the
etato telling the voters of the defalcation
of Eugene Moore , whllo In his home county
Is a defalcation larger than Moore's by over
J10.000 , which he passes by In silence. The
existence of such a state of affairs In his
homo county Is calculated to make the
voters Husplclous of the state officer who
does not hesitate to borrow his hay and
vegetables from the state.
Here' * n JVut for SIcNertc.
Them Is another matter that the popo-
crats have so far failed to explain satis
factorily , and that Is the Increase In the
tax collections In Red Willow county , the
homo of Treasurer Mescrve. In 1893 and
ISnC when Mesorve was county treasurer of
Red Willow , the amount of taxes reported to
the state was much lower than It has been
since that time , whllo the money derived
from the interest , lease and sale of school
lands for two years combined lacked $1,173.44
of bei.,5 as largo as tne collections from
the name source during the year 1897 alone ,
when a new county treasurer was In charge
of affairs. Mr. Meservo has made a num
ber of speeches since this disclosure was
made , but he has not deemed It of enough
importance to bring forth an explanation.
On the face of the record the Indications
nro that , the new treasurer of Red Willow
county not only perforsncd his whole duty
in the collection of the money1 , but that he
also accounted for all of It to the state
auditor. The question Is particularly Aa-
barrasslng to the reformers who have been
claiming that taxes are not being paid In
any faster than they were In 1895 and 1896 ,
and n complete explanation of the Red Wil
low case might expose some of the business
methods of J. B. Meservo that the reform
ers " , would ra.t&cr.kccp ciulot. - > | ( .
"ThejVfloJtrplctuVcnsquo prejWrlcatlon of the
campaign 'is being exploited by the firm of
Smyth & Smith of the ttoruey general's
office. This Is In regard to the Ebrlgtit
case at Nebraska City. These officials for
some unexplained reason neglected to at
tend to the case when It came up for a
hearing at Nebraska City , although they had
several times been notified that their pre
sence , there would bo necessary. Now botH
Smyth and 'Smith persist In telling how
Judge Hayward foiled to do his duty In the
prosecution. Their story Is contradicted anil
proven false In every particular by the de-
nlalB and signed statements of Judge Hayward -
ward , County Attorney Jcssen , and the
Otoo county judge before whom the hearing
was held. The statements made by the
Otoe county officials show beyond a shadow
of a doubt that tbo attorney general wa ;
the man who neglected his duty , but this
does not deter the Smyths and Smiths frori :
going right on with the prevarication. Thr
fact that Hayward bad no connection will
the case and was not present at the trial
has no effect on them.
1'roniMTlty "t the Cnnltitl.
The city of Lincoln Is enjoying Its share
of the prosperity that Is prevalent over the
country , and proof of this comes up In many
ways. During the summer Lincoln people
have been loyal to the great exposition at
Omaha/ and a largo amount of spending
money has gone'In ' that dlrect'on. ' It Is esti
mated ( hat the citizens of Lincoln have spenl
fully $ { 0,0)0 ( ) In railroad fare , board nnd
other expenses while visiting the big show ,
and , yet , this extraordinary drain seems to
have no effect on the business affairs here.
An Illustration occurred this week. On MOT.
day a la'rgo number of people went to Omaha
and on TUe'sday and Wednesday so man )
more made the same trip that It seemed ai
If all who had the money to spare must have
gone. On Tuesday morning tickets wen
placed on sale for an attraction that wa :
billed for the opera bouse ; tonight and be.
fore evening Tuesday the sale of seats liar
eclipsed all previous records , both In num.
ber and amount , yesterday all the scati
In the house were gone and fully BOO peopli
were turned away. Today there was a grea
demand for the reservation of standing roon
and all of this while the people ar
KOlng by the thousands to Omaha to se
the exposition and to witness the great tiem
onstratton In honor of McKlnley. It Is no
only n conclusive proof of the presence o
prosperity but It Is In direct contradlctlo :
of the claims of the calamity hosiers whi
Insist thit } money Is still scarce and that i
"slnglo breath would bring on a flnancla
panic. "

The fakes of the popocratlc campaign ar
coming to the surface In many rldlculou
wayo. A scheme was concocted a few day
ago to have eomu money addfd to the con
science fimd , aud to have the pretendd con
tributors accompany their donations wit
letters that could bo used by the calaralt
bowlers In their campaign. In furtheranc
of this gauzy scheme two letters are now ills
played at the state house , signed by flctl
tlous parties whose consciences arc strlcke
because of the crimes of other people , an
who donate a dollar each to bo added t
the funcK The public Is not accorded
eight of the checks tliat came In the let
( crs , and the envelopes by some unhapp
circumstance have been lost since the let
tcrs comr. It Is quite possible that Uncl
Jake.Is . using this way to pay up his bac
taxes , or that ho has made a ssnall collec

the chairman occupied several years , rec

they did last Saturday.
Since the change In the police department
it Omaha there has been a largo Increase
In the number of petty thlcvlngs and depre
dations here at Lincoln , Indicating that
many of the evil-doers have emigrated from
Omaha and lodged here. It Is expected that
there will be a. number ot bold hold-ups as

BROKEN DOW , Neb. , Oct. 13. ( Special
Telegram. ) The lack of populist cnthus1- !
asm In Custcr county was most forcibly
manifested today In this city. It was the
occasion of the Greene and Hrown debate.
The entire crowd present did not exceed
200 nnd Greene with nil his eloquence could
not awaken the old-ttmo auolausc. Six
years ago when Kern and Whltehcad hod
their Joint debate here , the populists were
hero by the thousands and at the conclusion
of the debate the/ carried K.m through the
streets on their shoulders amid great ap
plause. There were not more than Bevcnty-
flvo populist voters In attendance today and
not to exceed a half dozen went to the
platform to congratulate him. Among
Urown's congratulators was one ardent pop-
ullst who came on the rostrum and although
within six feet of Greene he did not so
much as speak to him. Grceno made but
little effort to meet Brown's able and log
ical speech , but occupied his time in en-
ertalnlng the audience by burlesquing
Jrown. Ho undertook to defend his circular
ubllshed In 189G when he stated that If
iIcKlnley was elected prices of all farm
reduce would continue to decline. He maln-
alncd the statements .were true and If
Jrown could show him a slnRlo hutnnce
vhcro It was not , ho would withdraw from
ho race. Brown quoted from the Era ,
tandard and the World-Herald to prove
.hat prices of all farm products as well as
ho Increase of exports had Increased
really In the last eighteen months under
epubllcan administration.

ohn Smith of Company A , Third regiment ,
Nebraska volunteers , arrived yesterday from
acksonvlllc , Fla. , on a thirty days' fur-
ough. At Pablo Beach he was down five
weeks with typhoid fever and that was fol-
owcd by a four weeks' tussle with the
mumps. Ho Is not looking very well and
ays there has been much sickness In the
amp. Unless he should be Included In those
to be mustered under the new arrangement
ho will rejoin his command at the expiration
of his sick leave. Smith is the only one of
the large number of soldiers from here who
lias been back on a furlough. It Is thought
hero now that the 106 recruits who went
torn here In June will soon bo homo from
Honolulu , as the arrangement between Gov
ernor Holcomb and the War department
ivould let them out at once.

it became due , " says the Railway Journal
"Assistant Secretary Vanderllp stated tha
the secretary had called upon him to pre
pare a report of all matters relative to th
Pacific roads. 'I shall , ' says he. 'endeavor ti
unravel the tangle to the best of my ability
stripping the case of all unnecessary rei
tape , and when my report Is ready it will b
an Impartial and concise statement of th
case. '
"This unexpected turn In the state of af
fairs has aroused tbo English holders of th
securities until they have about made u ;
their minds that the bezt way for them t
do is tt > assume the rtitlro indebtedness b ;
paying In full the claims held by the gov
ernmcnt. The Imperative manner'In whlcl
the administration handled the Union Paclfi
affair , no doubt , has convinced those In
tcrested fn the Central Pacific that whei
their tlmo came for settlement they wouli
also have to bow to the Inevitable and mak
the best ot It. At least , the announcemen
made recently by the secretary Is very con
vlnclng along that line and the step tba
the English holders have decided to tak
shows that they look upon It as the logics ,
move that has to bo made. "
