Thursday. July 25 , 1901
Every day brings some new and
startling revelation of some deed of
violence com aiitted by an iniuriated
inob , who are to say the least mostly
peaceable and law abiding citizens in
every other respect and are always our
best citizens. They are not willing
that a continuous farce be perpetrated
by our so-called officers of the law.
Late Saturday evening July 13 , 1901 ,
Gov. Savage paroled ex state treasurer
Bartley after he had served 4 years and
] month on his 20 year sentence foi-
stealiug over $500,000 from his state.
Numerous attempts have been made to
defeat justice in his case but he was
speedily sent behind the bars to pay
the penalty of a half million dollar
steal with a 20-year sentence which he
was serving and would have served but
for the election of republican state of
ficials last fall and how soon he was pa-
rolled which is equal to his pardon.
This is a good indication of how much
the republican party deplored being
caught by populist and democratic vic
tory in 1 896. In 1892 when Joe Bart
ley was a banker at Atkinson he con
ceived of a plan to accumulate wealth
faster than the two per cent a month
plan and loaded up a car with dele
gates and with banners flying from the
chartered car such as Joe Bartlev tor
State Treasurer went down to the state
convention taking it by storm but find
ing Mr. Hill a strong candidate for the
same place he withdrew with the prom
ise that in two years he could have the
place when Hill had gotten his fees ,
Bartley had never held oflice of any
kind before of any consequence nor had
he tried nor would he try for anything
but for state treasurer and for which
he waited patiently until it came , then
like a hungry wolf sieziug his prey he
began to make use of the office. It
could not be said that Bartley suffered
for other's wrongs. If he was a law- i
abiding ci tizen and not the perpetrator
be should and would have told who the
guilty parties were. It could not be
said that he was ignorant nor a fool , !
for who ever heard of a banker who *
bad done business for years being anv-
thing but a shrewd business man fully
able to take care of his i/wn interests.
lie was simply a thief , as he was prov
en to be , stealing over § 500,000 from
the state treasury and hoped to be let
down easy by republican officials which
thank fortune were not elected and he
was sentenced to 20 years in the pen
itentiary by what some people call
pops or demo-pops when they wish to
insinuate that they are a know nothing
people. If nothing else had been done
in Nebraska by the populists than sen
tence Joe Bartley they could claim a
better record than the republican party.
It is now discouraging to the law-abid
ing citizens that Joe Bartley could
steal $500,000 from the state , be senten
ced to 20 years which was a just sen- ,
tence as givenj then , and why let a
republican governor come back now
and issue a pardon or parole which
virtually turns the man loose to do as
he chooses. Is th * > re no punishment
for crimes committed by republicans:1
No redress for wrongs ? Are laws only
for tlie use of one party to handle the
other and not in force when one of the
party errs ? And will our people sanct
ion tl\ese measures by a vote for repub
lican officials that they may continue
this work of robbing the people ? It
was predicted by many that if the re
publicans were successful last fall Joe
.Bartley would be pardoned. How do
you like it ?
