D cuts Popnliit Policy.
DEMOCRACY HAS NO CLAIM ON THE PARTY
gge that In Event Reorgan

racy Bryan's Followers Might
Want a Political Home.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Aug. 23, -(Special.) For-
mer. Senator Allen, In the current Issue
of the Independent, makes the following re
ply to the recent editorial by W. J. Bryan
In his paper, the Commoner:
Editor Indeoendent: In the Commoner
of the Tth Inst, a rather caustic comment
Is made on the Denver conference address
and on the determination of the populists
to put a presidential ticket in the neici in
1904. and for declaring Itself "unqualifiedly
In favor of national political action." It la
assumed that the conference did not have
authority to speak for the party, nut
whether that Is true or not. It Is question
able (because the Commoner is not a popu
list Journal) whether it Is In a situation to
raise the point of regularity of the con
ference s work.
Complaint Is made that fusion populists
have surrendered to the middle-of-the-road
populists snd It Is stated that the latter
supported the republican ticket In lSwO.
A general onslaught is made on tne mia-
dle-of-the-roaders, they are characterised
as unreasonable, and It Is said they gave
aid and comfort to the republican party;
and other charges are made against them.
It Is finally urged that an appeal oe mane
from the regular populist organisation "to
the members of the populist party," to
undo the work of the Denver conference.
It Is to be regretted that the Commoner, as
well as some other democratic papers,
takes the view It does of the situation.
The tenor of the article is that Wie popu
list party must be disciplined for not sub
ordinating Its will to the wishes of the
democratic party. In other words, that the
populist party must be destroyed unless It
(frees to subordinate Its wishes and plat
forms to the democratic party's wishes and
Complaint Is made that the action of the
Denver conference will have a tendency to
weaken respect for the Chicago and Kan
sas City democratic platforms.
What Is PopolUt DntyT
Let us examine the situation and see
what the duty of the populists Is. The
party was organised . In ltd) as a protest
against both the republican and democratic
parties ana to accompiisn rerorma mat
neither of them had the disposition or
power to accomplish. The party has held
tnree national conventions ana promui-
f;ated. three national platrorms. it nomi
nated General Weaver for the presidency
on Its first and on the others tt nominated
Mr. Bryan, although Mr. Bryan is not a
Bryan in 18M and 1900 and would support
htm again If he were a candidate, because
they believe that by his election some of
the reforms which they advocate would
be sooner made practicable. But Mr. Bryan,
to the regret of the reformers everywncre,
failed of an election.
Populists did not fuse with the democrats
in supporting Mr. Bryan, but made an in
dependent nomination. At no time had
they any Intentions to abandon their party
or to become democrats, but simply eo
c, Derated with the liberal win of the dem
ocratic party to secure Mr. Bryan's elec
In the meantime It Is doubtful If the re
public!! n party did more to disorganise the
populist party and to absorb its member
ship than the democratic party did. Re-
neated nrotests of Donullets. that the demo
crats should not try. to disorganise the
fiarty. but let It work out Its own prob
ands In its own way, were Ignored and the
work of proselyting went steadily on.
The attitude of the Commoner makes
nlaln what many Domiliata believe, namely
that it was the Intention of the democratic
farty to abnorD the populists; ana now
hat Independent action haa been deter
mined on, this assault is made on our party;
and It Is evident that If we refuse to fur
thea march in the rear of the democratic)
column or under Its flag we are to be re-
puuiaiea ana uiscipunru. -'
Xo Allegiance to Democracy
Populists nowhere owe any allegiance to
either the Chicago or Kansas "City plat
forms. It Is a matter of Indifference to
them whether these documents "are voted
up or voted down." Their faith Ilea pre
scribed by the Omaha and Subsequent plat
form. These are the tests of oarty fealty.
The Commoner article makes no reference
to these platforms, or to the duty of popu
lists to support them, but seems to think
that we should desert our platforms and
make common cause with the democrats
In upholding the Chicago and Kansas City
platforms. Why soT
1 am oulte certain that tha assertions
that .the middle-of-the-road populists are
amnonest, ia as a rule a mistake, -mere
are dishonest men tn all parties and doubt
less there are some In the middle-of-the-
road wing of the populist party; but I am
confident that the maioritv of them were
honest, though mistaken In their action cf
ltiM and 1000.
The assertion that "the most notworthy
Sart of the new platform Is its failure to
eal with several vital Issues of the day,"
Is a total misconception of the aim and
purpose of the Denver conference. It was
distinctly understood that we had no au
thorlty to promulgate a platform and that
the vital issues are continued In the
Omuha platform of July 4..1S9J. ,
We do repeat In substance the ad
areas, tne carama-i aoctrines oi populism:
but it must be said with a due degree of
modesty that the Commoner, not being
a populist, doe not stand in a position to
leu populists what they shall put In or
take out of their Dlatform or address.
l nave Deen ana am yet a nrm ana loyai
supporter of Mr. Bryan. I would vote for
mm lor presioent in ,a convention or out
of It, and confidently "believe that the time
will come when he will reach the goal of
hla ambition and where, In consequence of
his great ability, he can be of incalculable
service to the nation.
Bryan Rot a Dictator. .
But we did not support' Mr. Bryan be
cause be Was a pooullst or because he ac
cepted the doctrines of our platforms; nor
are we prepared to say that, Mr. Bryan
minseir not ueing in in race, ne nas any
ngnt to luriiisn us a canaiaate ior tne
presidency or to direct us as to the course
we shall pursue. If there was the slightest
hope of Mr. Bryan controlling the national
convention of his party and receiving the
nomination; u were not apparent mat
the reactionary element of his party will
dominate Its next convention, there might
i Home reason ior popunsts to nestiaio
before Issuing an address tg the people.
Respecting "fusion," or more properly
speaking co-operation In tha state, it will
be observed that the opposition extends
onljk to .n
atlonal political sat ion. It was
directly understood In the 'conference that
eauh state should be left to control Its own
local affairs; that the policy of fusion or
I independent action should De determined
iv oartles of the resneotlve states, and I
feel confident that no member of the con
ference had the slightest Intention to re
fuse honorable co-oocration locally as long
as that can pe done to the advancement of
That Judce Sullivan will receive the nom
ination of the populists of this slate and
their hearty support for the great office h
has Ailed with such signal ability, is a
foregone conclusion, i .But assaults on pop
ulists and their motives, and carping
criticism will not have a tendency to In
duce them to give their full strength to
democratic nominees. It would, in my
JuilKtnent, be the part of wisdom for dem
ocrats and populists to work in harmony
on issues held in common; and neither
should make any attempt at dltorganlxlng
the other, but appeal to the intelligence of
the people to support the party that chal
lenges thelrf enlightened Judgment.
Reverses the Araument.
The populist party Is a national entity
in spite of protest or bitter criticism. It
will pursue the course tt thinks wlae and
beat and will continue to exist and grow.
It ha no Intention of dyina.
It I going to considerable length for
deme-rs ti o say that -the populist party
should disband and be absorbed by the
democratic party. With equal propriety
populists can say that the democratic party
should disband and be absorbed by the
populist party, wnicn in my judgment,
would be Ihe wiser thin to do.
If Indirectly lending assistance to the re
publican iarty 1 a thing to be avoided,
and I think H I, thl can be a easily
accomplished by the democrats becoming
populist as by populists becoming demo

LINCOLN, Aug. 23. (Special. )-Tbe work
ot the college settlement will be resumed
In the early fall. The new building which
the settlement residents moved Into at
Twentieth and N streets a year ago has
been greatly improved by the addition of
a furnace, ho and cold shower bath,
plumbing, a cement floor In the basement,
and a new porch over the main entrance.
The yard has been graded and fruit trees
have been planted and seeds have been
sown. The settlement Is now practically
out of debt, all bills having been paid by
voluntary subscriptions by the people of
Lincoln and of the university.
People not directly interested have a
vague Idea of the work being done by the
settlement. It Is not as Is most generally
understood a school or church of charity
for the benefit of only the very poor
classes who are unable to attend schools,
and this very Idea has kept many people
away from It. The management does not
consider the work any more a charity thin
a church and they argue that 'when a man
attends a church, though he gives nothing
for Its malntalnance, he does hot beebme
an object of charity. Those who gave
the money for the building of the settle
ment gave It not as an ordinary charity,
but to build a place where rich and poor
alike could meet for social Intercourse and
for the broadening and uplifting of each
other. Its lecture room Is a place where
all discuss questions that concern them
and discuss freely current Issues, city Im
provement or anything else. The house
is always open for meetings that Interest
the neighborhood in which It Is located
and people are Invited to take advantage
The work was first started In Lincoln
about ten years ago by a number of uni
versity professors, who conducted It In a
building In the northwestern part of the
city. About three years ago the work died
down considerably, to be resurrected, and
a new building was the result. When the
work began to broaden, the board of di
rectors was enlarged to Include a number
of the citizens of the town. The board Is
now composed of.W. G. Ix Taylor, presi
dent; A. Ross Hill, Paul Grumman, uni
versity professors, and J. E. Miller, God
frey W. Rhodes and Mrs. G. M. Lambert
son of Lincoln. Four student members are
to be elected In October. The residents who
have the work in charge are C. B. Prevey,
Mrs. Alice W. Prevey and Harry N. Pos
ton, a student helper.
The main object of the settlement Is to
promote good fellowship and social Inter
course. It does this by the organisation
ot clubs of persons of all ages, each of
which haa its regular meeting night. Dur
ing the winter the settlement -conducted a
night school for the benefit of those whose
work did not permit of them attending
school. The attendance, however, was not
what It should have ' been and the work
was not as successful as was anticipated.
The classes will be resumed this winter If
students will attend. The tuition Is free.
Clnbs and Schools.
During the summer tjnly the boys' clubs
have been kept .moving,.- The , Antelope
Valley boys' club, organised last Novem
ber, has had a meeting every Friday night,
with an attendance -of fifteen. Tha boys
are from 7 to 16 years old. They have
given two entertainments, the proceeds
from which went to buy a punching bag
and other apparatus, for a gymnasium.
The Ruby Seal club, for girls from T to
14 years old, has had an average attend
ance from the time tt was organised last
November until April, of nineteen. The
literary and social club for persons over
16 years old, organised In January, has had
an average attendance of forty. This club
was organised for the discussion of social
problems and Its members Indulge In de
hate and have had several lectures. W.
Bryan was the speaker upon the night
of the organisation, and since then Gov
ernor Mickey, ex-Governor Poynter and
several of the university professors have
lectured to Its member.
The sewing school for girls attracted the
laraest number. To April 11, when Its
meetings were discontinued for the sum
mer the average attendance was fifty-one.
The girls were provided with eight teach
ers. Other classes were opened during
the winter In arithmetic, language, vocal
music, history, elocution and drawing, but
were discontinued because of a lack of
attendance. This winter It is planned to
open a cooking school and a carpenter
class. The tools and benches for the lat
ter have all been provided, but assistance
Is needed to fit up the kitchen.
Tha young people organise their own
clubs, elect their officers and conduct all
their affairs themselves, under the direction
of the residents. The work Is In charge
of Mr. Prevey and he Is assisted by Mrs,
Prevey and students of the university,
These reside at the settlement and there
Is room there for two or three student
helpers. The only student who has assisted
straight through the school year was Mr.
Poston and his work Is highly spoken of
by Mr. Prevey. For their assistance the
student are given room) rent free of
charge. The settlement needs finances to
Ot up one more room for a helper and to
fit up the basement for a boys' club room.
One large room downstairs Is used for a
game room and another for a library and
reading room. Many excellent books have
been secured and the young people of the
city are encouraged to read. The work
will be resumed October t

"And I say unto you, build not upon the

on, and the next day was the Sunday
And when night came the building was
all down and the day's work counted for
naught on this mundane sphere. But to
morrow will that little band, enforced
with some better timber, go forth and
start again the building of the housa. This
will be done because the members of the
church have rented the ground at the state
fair site unoa which to oondnct an eating
emporium. They msde the mistake of
putting up an Insecure building, which Is
against the order of the board of man
agers. But the members of the church expect
to reap their harvest during the fair. All
Indications point to the largest attendance
In the history of the state. Many splendid
ttractlons have been secured, the grcntest
f which Is advertised as Cresceus, the
wonder, who will do a turn here September
8, at the same time the republican state
central committee expects to get together.
The people are Just now wondering
whether the railroads will furnish suffi
cient transportation fncllltles to accommo
date all who desire to come. There Is every
reason to believe, however, that all who
want to come will find no difficulty In

M'KEESPORT. Pa., Aug. 13. Annie
Roberts, an excursion boat carrying 1,600
passengers, sank tonight, but no person
was drowned. The boat had been up the
river with the Ancient Order of Hibernians,
No. 7, and their guests from Pittsburg, on
their annual outing. On the return trip,
when approaching this place It was dis
covered that the vesael was rapidly filling
with water, and Captain Klein, without
letting his passengers know of the con
dltion, ordered the pilot to head for the
wharf. This was quickly done and when
the boat was within twenty-five of shore
It sank In about six feet of water.
The excursionists were all taken off with
out fatalities by means of skiff and
When the boat sank the lower deck was
covered with water to a depth of about six
Inches. Women and children became panic
stricken and there were many narrow es
capes from drowning during the transfer
from the boat to shore.

Municipal Ownership Idea Growing; Bap
, idly in German Municipalities,
RIVALRY TO SEE WHICH SHALL HAVE BEST
Public Works Ucncrally Inancnrntcd
by Prlvale Enterprise or Cor
porations and Then Par
chased by Pnbllc.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Aug. 23 (Special. )-Er-nest
L. Harris, United States commercial
agent at Etbenstock, In a recent report to
the Department of Commerce and Labor,
writes that the Idea of municipal control of
public works has secured a strong foot
hold In Germany.
"In Germany," Mr. Harris writes, "there
Is a very strong tendency on the part ot
the state or municipal authorities, as the
oase may be, to secure control of all the
works which contribute in any way toward
the public welfare. It is usually the cus
tom on the part of local authorities to
grant a concession for a certain number
ot years, providing that when the time
expires the city shall assume control of
the enterprise. In the majority of cases
It has either been private enterprise or a
stock company which haa taken the Initia
tive in German cities in introducing the
most advanced technical and scientific im
provements. This has been the case In
small towns as well as In large cities. The
water and gas works of Klbenstock, for
example, were built a few years ago by a
stock company organised by the! cltlaens of
the town. The ownership of both,' how
ever, was recently acquired by the mu
nicipal government and the company
liquidated. Government control of all such
enterprises has led to a great rivalry among
tho large cities of the empire in striv
ing to be first In the application of tho
newest methods and latest Inventions
known to science. Tho exhibits of the dif
ferent cities of the empire at Dresden af
ford a striking opportunity to study tho
progress made in Industrial science and Its
application In Germany today.
"The exhibition Is divided Into two parts.
In the first section are the exhibits of the
large German cities with regard to the
progress made In recent years relating to
municipal management of water works,
sewerage canals, underground wires, tele
phones, electrlo railways, gas and electric
light works, etd.
"One of the most interesting 'features of
the exhibition Is the cross-section street of
the city of Dresden.
"In the second section of the exhibition
many of the large Industrial concerns of
the empire are represented."

OIL IN BONANZA , FIELDS
Recent Wyoming- Discoveries Show
Lara-e Lake of Petroleum Near
BASIN CITT. Wyo., Aug. 23.-(Speclal.)-
The strike of oil by the Hooxler people In
the Bonansa fields south of here was more
Important than at first supposed, but the
company desired to keep the matter quiet
to prevent prices of land going up. A
heavy flow of oil was struck at a depth
of 1,124 feet. Before further progress could
be made a caveln occurred and nothing
can be done In the well until new casing
arrives. The. manufacturers are "ninety
days behind In their orders and work will
probably not be resumed In the well before
November 20.' The Hooxler company will
put down other wells on their property In
order to satisfy themselves as to the quan
tity of the oil In the Bonansa fields. The
Hdosler discoveries, following those of the
Reams company a year ago, prove con
clusively that a large lake of hlgli grade
petroleum exists under the Benton shale at
a depth of from 1,000 to 1,800 feet, and that
the Bonanxa fields with development, will
soon become one of the leading producers
of high grade Illuminating oils In this
