STRIKE HELPS TO
Eastern Railroads Profit Great
ly by the Tieup of Lake
The lake tieup helps to swell the earn
ings of the eastbound roads from the
Twin Cities, Duluth and Chicago in this
dull period. They are getting _a.largely
increased tonnage of grain and package
freight -fr The latter is of the most Im
portance; as it has accumulated at East
ern and Western lake ports and is to be
moved both ways. . .
All package freight that was in the
hands of lake and rail lines on May ?
and on which bills of lading had been is
sued is sent by rail at the contract rate,
but freight delivered and accepted after
that *d£te /will have to pay, full all rail
rat%» except on flour, a special rate hay
ing-been made to aid Northwestern mill
Great pressure is brought to bear on
the all rail lines to continue in effect the
lake and rail rate unttt the strike is set
tled. It is not likely, however, that the
railroads will make further concessions.
They feel that as long as the lake lines
are tied up the business will have to go to
them, and they are not in a position now
to sacrifice any earnings to gain the good
will of shippers.
The effect of the lake strike on the
grain movement eastward by lake is
shown by the difference between the ship
ments last week and those of last year.
They were only 402,920 bushels, compared
■with 2.943.000 bushels last year and 2,
--467,000 bushels two years ago.
During the last three weeks the east
bound roads from Chicago have handled
I*o.ooo tons of freight for the lake and rail
lines. This includes both east and west
bound traffic, of which 45,000 tons was
from Chicago. It came when east-bound
roads had plenty of cars and were able
to handle it promptly.
The net increase for the month is said to
be about 20 per cent over the month of
Grain shipments have not been so large
of late, owing to unfavorable market con
ditions and the advanced rates on grain
from the Missouri river to Chicago, which
become effective by the end of this week,
will cause a further shrinkage. A settle
ment of the lake strike would cut down
all rail shipments to a minimum.
Shipments of flour last week increased
95.622 barrels for the week, and provisions
gained 1.782 tons, while grain shipments
decreased 305,000 bushels.

with the Lancaster delegation while
he was on the floor of the convention.
The proceedings were characterized
by harmony and the delegates at all
times appeared anxious to outdo each
other in their support of the leaders
and the principles they represented.
H. H. Hawks was chairman of the
Several speeches were delivered,
among them being addresses by Mr.
Bryan in support of the platform; by
Congressman Cochran and the dele
gates selected to the national conven
tion. The delegates at large are W. J.
Bryan, Lancaster; G, J. Smyth, Oma
ha, former secretary of state; W. H.
Thompson, Grand Island, candidate for
governor in 1902, and Walter Phillips,
James C. Dahlman, of Omaha, was
unanimously elected national commit
teernan from Nebraska.
Text of the Resolutions.
Following is the platform
We reaffirm our fafth in Democratic
principles as those principles were set
forth in the last national platform of the
party, adopted at Kansas City, in 1900.
Democracy means the rule of the people,
a government resting upon the consent of
the governed and administered accord
ing to the will and in the interest of the
With an increasing love for the princi
ples of Democracy and an increasing
confidence in their final triumph, we look'
upon the present time as opportune for
their earnest and courageous promulga
tion, with a chief executive who has dis- ,
regarded constitutional limitations, stirred
up antagonism between the races, em
ployed all the powers of his office to se
cure a renomination and purchased po
litical support by turning the treasury
department over to the financiers and
putting the law department into the hands
of the trusts. With such a chief execu
tive and with Republican leaders openly
and arrogantly in league with organized
wealth, the country' imperatively needs a
return of the government to positive and
clearly defined Democratic principles.
Democracy as taught by Jefferson and ex
emplified by Jackson is the support of the
republic and offers the only relief from
the plutocracy which now dominates the
Republican party and through that party
Would Root Out Monopolies.
Democracy would oppose as inimical to
the welfare of the people all private
monopolies and would exterminate them
by the enforcement of the remedies sug
gested in the Kansas City platform. The
failure of the present administration to
enforce existing laws or to suggest more
effective laws is conclusive proof that it
lacks the desire, the intelligence or the
moral courage to attack the conscience
less combinations of capital that have
flourished during recent years.
Democracy would relieve the country
of the menace of militarism by following
the example set by this country in its
dealing with Cuba and giving the Fili
pinos an immediate promise of ultimate
independence. The administration of a
colonial system, according to monarchial
principles, is repugnant to our theory of
government and cannot be depended upon
without the assertion of doctrines which,
if carried out, will undermine free gov
ernment in the United States.
Tariff on Revenue Basis.
Democracy would restore the tariff to
a revenue basis and administer it for
revenue only, thus demolishing the legal
bulwarks behind which the predatory
trusts have found refuge. Protection for
protection's sake is an ingenious device
for the exploitation Of the masses by the
privileged classes; it has brought great
injustice to the consumers and has been
the fruitful source of widespread political
Democracy would administer the treas
ury department on behalf of the public,
not as now in the interest of Wall street.
It would prevent the recoinage of legal
tender silver dollars into limited legal
tender subsidiary coin. It would secure
to the people a volume of standard money
sufficient to keep pace with the demand
for money. It would favor paper money
issued by the government without the
intervention of national banks. It would
resist the attempt to establish an asset
currency and branch banks, and it would
oppose the loaning of government money
to private banks, a scheme by which the
people's money is employed to lay a foun
dation for a campaign fund and to bribe
the financial interests to oppose any re
duction of taxation. The present admin
istration of the treasury department is
oppressively beneficial to the capitalistic
class and progressively harmful to the
producers of wealth.
Income Tax Proposed.
Democracy would make taxation more
equitable by collecting a part of the rev
enue from an income tax, secured by a
constitutional amendment, and would
bring the government nearer to the people
by the popular election of United Slates
senators and direct legislation.
Democracy would strictly regulate the
railroads, thus protecting farmers and
merchants from excessive rates and dis
Democracy would safeguard the inter
ests of the wage earner and the artisan by
providing for an eight-hour day; by Sub
stituting arbitration for strikes and lock
outs, and by restoring the right of trial
by jury, now suspended by government
Democracy would secure to the sur
viving soldiers and sailors and their de
pendents generous pensions, not by an
arbitrary order, but by legislation, which
a grateful people stand ready to enact.
Democracy would construct an isthmian
canal without a violation of treaty ob
ligations and without exciting suspicion
among our sister republics of Central and
Democracy would regard public office
as a public trust, provide for an honest
and economical administration of the gov-
ernment andjmnish with severity any be
trayal of offtTial duty.
Democracy has nothing to gain from
ambiguity and nothing to fear from the
i£ht. Democratic platforms should,
therefore, set forth Democratic principles
policies and purposes with frankness,
clearness and definiteness. Those who
champion the principles embodied in a
truly Democratic creed can appeal to the
moral sense of the country and trust for
vindication to the awakened conscience of
an* intelligent and patriotic citizenship.
The delegates chosen by this conven
tion to the Democratic national conven
tion are hereby instructed to vote as a
unit on all questions, provided that the
unit rule may be suspended by a ma
jority vote of the delegation.
Edgar Howard, a member of the res
olutions committee, later introduced
the following resolution, which was
The Democracy of Nebraska heralds to
the Democracy of the nation its steadfast
respect for. confidence in and loyalty to
Nebraska's great champion of pure Dem
ocratic principles and bids him godspeed
m his splendid efforts to prevent the na
tional organization from falling under the

Bryanites Have Oklahoma.
ANANDARKO, Okla., June I.—The
Bryan wing of the Oklahoma Democ
racy dominated the convention held to
elect delegates to the St. Louis con
vention and the delegates were in
structed to act in conjunction with
those who supported-the party in the
last two presidential elections.
The Hearst men early in the conven
tion gave up hope of obtaining in
structions for their candidate and the
Parker men, who opposed all instruc
tions, were overwhelmingly defeated.
Delegates to the national convention
were chosen as follows:
Roy Stafford, W. E. Worden, M. C.
Runyan, G. W. Bellamy, G. E. Plack,
"William Tilghman, W. D. Eagleton,
William Buchholz, W. D. Daubille,
Frank Stevens, S. J. Gentry and B. W.
The platform favors the admission
of Oklahoma and Indian territory as
one state on absolute equality and
upon the same plane as the most fa
vored states in the Union. The Dem
ocratic platforms of 1896 and 1900 are
reaffirmed. R. A. Billups was elected

Amateur Magician Will Not Try to Re-

McCadden was entertaining and mys
tifying a number of his rural friends,
when he decided to astonish them by
emitting fire from his mouth. To do
this he surreptitiously placed a quan
tity of gasoline in his mouth, then
lighted a match and blew a stream of
gasoline upon the flame.
The excitement caused by the ap
plause of his admiring friends caused
him to draw in his breath, and with.
it the ignited gasoline. He shouted
and emitted the real flame from his
mouth, and the crowd continued to ap
plaud, thinking it was part of the act.
His lips, gums, tongue and the roof
of his mouth are now a mass of blis
ters, and some of his teeth have been
so affected by the flames that they may
have to be drawn.
