Hon. Thomas Tibbies, who assisted Tom
Allen, Mr. ltryan'a brother-in-law, In his
scheme to prevent any populist In Ne
braska "from voting for Watson elector,
wrote an article for Tom Watson's maga
t:ne three years ago. In tho article there
Is much about . that 1.Q which Tom
Allen received .from Rryun's Wall street
friends, the expenditure of which neither
Mr. Bryan nor Mr. Allen will discuss. The
article tells of tho suppression of the Ne
braska Independent by Mr. Bryan and the
overthrow of the populist party. But of
particular Interest at this time to Ne
braskans la the following, taken verbatim
from the article:
The chairman of the democratic state
committee, a brother-in-law to Bryan, came
to Mr. Tibbies, declaring that he repre
senttd Mr. lrvan and waa sneaking in
Bryan's name, and made the following
If Mr. Tibbies would spend most of his
tiinn out of the state during the campaign,
and lut the Independent support the fusion
ticket, all of whose nominees except three
were populists, Mr. Bryan on his part
would airree to ao to Arizona or Colorado
and get sick, lie would continue to keep
sick unlll the close of the campaign, so
sick that he would not be able to make
any political speeches at all. An exception
was made in regard to Indiana. It was
said that Mr. Bryan had promised to make
three soeeches In Indiana In support of his
old personal frifnd who was running for
novel n. ir in that state, hut it was further
stipulated that these three speeches should
not be political speeches, but repetitions
of Mr. Bryan's lecture on "Ideals."
"Mr. Bryan went to Arizona and sent
home a letter saying that he was worse
and would not be able to deliver any
pciiiil.al Heeeties during the campaign.
That letter was printed In the Lincoln
j'.ailv papers and was shown to Mr. Tlb
