INTRODUCTORY
To the Public -
1 realize the responsibility that I am
assuming in taking charge of this paper
and that every issue will be viewed crit
ically
I cannot hope to please everyone into
whose hands a copy of The Democrat
may fall and though I may be ever so
careful to publish a paper of the high
est standard to the best of my ability
the lack of experience will be likely to
cause errors for which though I do not
shirk the respnsibility I will be truly
sorrowful I hope unto repentance and
I ask your forbearance and kindly ad
vice
Should I succeed in giving the news
and happenings as they occur in a
clear intelligible and unprejudiced
manner keeping the people informed
as to what is being done at Valentine
and in Cherry county I will have per
formed a work that wtll be creditable
To Robert Good is due the credit
for making this paper the largest in cir
culation the most definite in language
and in popularity with the people pub
lishing the brands of more stockmen
than any other paper in the northwest
I cannot hope to be as Good in va
rious ways editorially mechanically
enthusiastically or in verbosity
My thoughts will find utterance
through the columns of The Valentine
Democrat which may not at all times
voice the sentiment of all who read it
but those thoughts will come from be
due and chargeable to my observation
experience and education
My predecessor has informed you
that the policy of this paper will con
tinue as it has beenpolitically To this
I would add that I may not be out
spoken enough to suit the most partisan
though I shall always be loyal to the
principles which I advocate THE
GREAT CAUSE OF THE COMMON
PEOPLE and I shall ever be found
defending and protecting the cause that
is as near and dear to me as the life I
live
In changing the title of this paper to
The Valentine Democrat I do so
for convenience and simplicity
Respectfully
I M RtCE
If Admiral Dewey is a true democrat
he will not allow his name to come up
nor be mentioned as a candidate for
president as long as the people are
clamoring for Bryan and there seems
to be no let up in the enthusiasm which
is being manifested every where Han
na is still blowing his tin horn and try
ing to rally his republican supporters
to again try Mac and theyll fight it
out on the same lines as in -96 But to
the credit of some of our republican
friends it might be soid They are now
fully convinced that McKinley is not in
favor of the policy that by his silence
in 96 he wished the people to believe
him to be They know now just how
he stands and they are not willing to
endorse a policy that is meeting with
so much favor and is so heartily en
dorsed by the plunder seeking monop
olies railroad corporations and the
double interest drawing national banks
Mark Uanna has things so arranged
that there will be at least four presi
dential tickets in the field in Nebraska
this fall namely republican fuzzie
wuzzies Debs and union reform be
sides the fusion ticket If there is any
other that could by any posssbility draw
a few votes away from Bryan the
money tvill be furnished to pay the ex
penses Nebraska Independent

THE ELEVATION OF LABOR
There is a misunderstanding M the
important things to acquire and the
standard and object of the best life
Vuung men growing up scejfwell elres
scl people the smoothness and easu
with which they apparently1 take life
The fine appearance of many of the
people who have plenty of money to
spend wearing a nobby suit of fine
clothes and to the careless observer
having nothing to do but soek amuse
ment of whatsoever they enjoy has
made many a young man envy their
position
There is a false idea as to the amount
of enjoyment that wealth gives a man
If you could measure happiness as
you do the commodidities you would
find that there was less real enjoyment
in a rich mans life than is generally
accredited whether he be wealthy
without labor or if he has made his
wealth by constant hard work and de
votion to business
The farmers and laboring men who
have constant employment at fair wa
ges with a comfortable home raising
up a fine family of healthy robust and
intelligent children from the chubby
little 4 3 car old to the graduate of the
common schools now ready to begin a
life of usefulness and who have been
taught from earliest infancy to us
proper respect in addressing their eld
ers and superiors these are the men
who enjoy happiness in life and they
should for who among the most
wealthy of our people could not envy
the laborer andfarmer with their ro
bust constitutions sitting in an easy
chair by the fireside at the close of day
conversing on the neighborhood affairs
or reading the family newspaper
The novel writers for centuries back
haye painted glowing pictures of the
gentleman who hai nothing to do but
seek his own amusement ordering ev
erything and being waited upon by ser
vants numerous of slipping a com into
the hand of some unfortunate or wait
er from whom he expected extra ser
vice and also picturing the hero as a
stalwart man of great endurance A
traveler going here and there not on
business but as a matter of pleasure
Poets have chanted the charms of the
stage the gayest scenery the beautiful
flowers the grandeur of nature the ro
mantic men and charming women uut
never has there been a decade when
the laborer was held up as a model of
happiness and content or that there
was anything in his life worthy of men
tion only as he steps out when oppor
tunity presents and with the courage
born of toil stops some runaway horse
to save a childs lifegoes into the build
ing enwrapped with flames to save
some inmate or knocks down some bul
ly for insulting a lady or tantalizing an
innocent child
The time is coming when the laborer
and farmer will be admired The
many sterling qualities of the toiler will
not go unsung for as the grandest sat
elites or comets move slower orin a
larger circle requiring longer time to
make their appearance so surely will
the toilers day remain when he is at
last given his just credit and praise
WASHINGTON ON TRUSTS
In 1778 General Washingtons army
was not in a
very good condition It
needed food and
soldiers were m
clothing in fact the
rags and with their
officers lived on the plainest of food
principally roots Congress was strug
gling to supply him and his army with
the necessaries of life but it had trou
ble with those who had the suppliesbe
cause thejT controlled the market and
were noj disposed to let them go with
out being paid their own price It was
then that Washington wrote Joseph
Reed president of congress to the fol
lowing effect
It gives me sincere pleasure to find
that the assembly of Pennsylvania is so
well disposed to second your endeavor
in bringing those murderers of our
cause the monopolizers to condign
punishment It is much to be lamented
that each state long ere this has not
hunted them down as pests to society
and the greatest enemies we have to
the happiness of J nerica
I would to God some one of the
most atrocious in each state was hung
in gibbets upon a gallows five times as
high as the one proposed by Hainan
No punishment in my opinion is too
great for the man who builds his great
ness upon his countrys ruin Nebras

No doubt you have noted how much
easier it rains in Nebraska since Mr
McKinley took charge of the elements
and the rest of the universe Do not
make the mistake of giving your thanks
for rain to the wrong source World

CUMING COUNTY POPS
Editor Independent Every pop in
Cuming county as far as I can learn
fired DClem Deaver back trom whence
it came He Jmight have retained
some readers the first shot out of his
middle of the road pop gun had not
been aimed at Allen and Bryan
All the pops in this county are for le
form rather than party and they see
no way of getting it except by fusing
with silver republicans and silver dem
ocrats and by the way I believe the
silver republican party is the only gen
uine republican party in existence 1
voted for republican principles in 1856
and have voted for themCever sincebut
for the last twelve years outside of the
so called republican party I cannot
see that the so called is supporting a
single principle that was advocated by
Abraham Lincoln L R Fletcher in

A DEAD ISSUE
In response to a communication from
the Nebraska Suffrage Press Bnreauan
editor referred to woman suffrage as an
issue dead beyond resurrection
This seems amusing to those who have
been watching the progress of this
movement in recent years In the last
two decades but two years have passed
that have not marked a victory for
woman suffrage and some years have
marked several of them
In twenty four states ot the Union
women have been granted school suf
frage in Montana and Louisiana they
vote on questions of taxation in Kan
sas they have municipal suffrage and
in Wyoming Colorado Utah and Ida
ho they vote on all questions Nor is
the progress of this movement limited
to the United States In England
Scotland Ireland Iceland Ontario
Nova Scotia New Brunswick British
Columbia and Manitoba unmarried
women and widows with property are
municipal voters in Norway women
who pay school tax vote on school
questions in France women vote for
judges of tribunals of commerce and
in South Australia West Australia New
Zealand and the Isle of Man women
enjoy full suffrage and all the most im
portant of these victories have been
won in the last twenty years
In Nebraska the movement is gain
ing rapidly in numbers and influence
and the work has grown to the extent
of rendering necessary a state head
quarters with a permanent secretary
And those who believe this question to
be a dead issue will find ere many
years that it has not only been resur
rected but reincarnated iuto the
laws of the state
