One of the ablest and most honest
editors of the state, Mr. Ross Hammond
of the Fremont Tribune, thus expresses
his sound convictions regarding the
"The apologists for Joe Bartley, and
Mr. Bartley himBelf, say& he was mak
ing restitution of state money when he
was arretted, and had paid over 8143,
000 to the state after his shortage was
known. This, they say, was good evi
dence of his puppose to convert secur
ities into cash and repay all money
due the state but when he was arrested
he quit the work and finally went to
the penitentiary without making any
further financial restitution. It must
be remembered, however, that Bartley
was convicted and sent to prison for
embezzling the proceeds of a state
warrant, negotiated at Omaha; that the
proceeds for this warrant for $210,000
were placed to the credit of his indi
vidual account and not to the state's.
Therefore this did not come within
the category of deposits in 3mall banks
which he Bought to withdraw slowly
to prevent the creation of a panic
among them by a too sudden call.
He was clearly guilty of a very great
offense against the state, his party and
his confiding bondsmen. The anguish
and tears of his family are sad features
of the unfortunate case, but there are
anguish and tears of innocent people
in all such cases, and as touching and
sad as the suffering may be it cannot
be permitted to weigh against the duty
of society demanded by a strict exac
tion of penance in proportion to the
enormity of crimes committed against
" 'He was not a criminal at heart,' is
a common expression in extenuation of
guilt. It makes a mockery of the
strict integrity and honest that is be
coming too little prized by sentiment
alists who are ready to forgive because
all men are not perfect in their deport
ment. It is a tendency in the wrong
direction and a growing one. Neither
Bartley nor Bolln should have been
liberated. It puts a premium on dis
honesty that it is not for the public
good and this, we believe, is the verdict
of the honest common people who have
tired of seeing favoritism shown the big
transgressors of the law."
A PROPHECY FULFILLED.
The late Jacob S. Rogers, an eccentric
locomotive builder of Paterson, N. J.,
was a good man not to be related to.
He never manifested any particular in
terest in art, but he was determined that
his relatives should not have any of his
money. So after leaving them a few
scanty bequests he left his immense for
tune, estimated at nearly $8,000,000, to
the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New
York. The town of Paterson, where
the money was made, will receive noth
ing. How much the lawyers will re
ceive remains to be seen, as there is a
big law Buit in sight.

Don't you know its very foolish

If he didn't just remember
Between now and next November
That you bluffed the same old way in
You went howling through creation
That destruction and starvation
Was the certain fate of every mother's son
If the following election
Didn't go in your direction
With your crazy notions of sixteen to one .
But you see you were not in it ,
Not one single blessed minute,
When the voters really settled down to bir ;
They were not so green and silly
As you seemed to think them, Billy ,
When you tried to fill them up on silver
And I'll tell you, Billy Bryan ,
That I really think you're lyin'
When you say our party principles are
For you've put in every hour
Since McKinley was in power
Filling up your poekets with gold standard
Now to be consistent, honey,
You must give up all that money
Which you made when politics were out of
Do we think we see you do it ?
Not one penny if you knew it
Would you give up. Do you voters see
the point ?
If this little object lesson
Fails to set th people guessin'
Till their Yankee wits see how things ought
Well own up were mistaken ,
That our taith is sadly shaken ,
And hang our harps upon a weeping wil
