Few people who never investi gated, and who have not been in position to learn of their own knowledge, understand how state warrants are manipulatedihy cer tain banks and note shavers in Lincoln, and the state and the people robbed. For instance, you have a claim i against the state for goods cr ser vices rendered. With your vouch er properly signed up you go to the auditor and get a state warrant. When presented to the treasurer he places his signature upon it and informs you that he has no money to pay it wtih but yon can probably get it cashed in Lincoln by dis counting it one, two, three or five per cent, on take it to. certain banks or to the lieutenant governor who shaves it as suits him best and gives jou the cash. The warrant is then taken to the treasury and registered, and draws 7 per cent interest until redeemed. When presented to the treasury for payment the owner of the war rant is informed that the county assessments have not been paid in and be has ho money to cash the warrants yet it is asserted by men who profess to know that the treas urer is furnishing stale money to shave warrants with, getting a share in the profits and in the in terest which accrues upon these warrants. Two per cent shaved from $200, 000 in warrants is a snug little sum to take from the pockets of merc hants and laborers who serve the state and add to this 7 per cent interest for two, four or six months and the parties tothedeal are doing a lucrative business at the people's expense. Is it any wonder the Did republican ring is loth to let go the state machine which lias be come so well oiled and manipulated by these eld ringsters for the pist twenty-five years that it almost runs itself? Is it not time to turn thef rascals out land give honest government a show, and the tax payers an opportunity to get jus tice? Honest republicans will cer tainly not longer condone such official ac's.

Time was when to be a trarnp was considered a sin and a disgrace. When the epidemic first struck the country away back in the Go's it was largely the restless, roving in temperate class w ho took to tramp ing and theie was little excuse or sympathy for them. Following the great financial depression ot '73, when factories were closed, merchants driven to the wall and the labor market practically closed to willing hands the list was ex tended and honest tradesmen, sturdy yeomen and hitherto suc cessful merchants joined the ranks which have gradually increased in numbers for the past twenty years. But during the financial d pression from iSo'uptothe present time the number has increased so steadi ly and so rapidly that it has ceased to be a matter of much comment. It takes in such a varried class of citizens merchants, lawyers, doc tors, preachers, tradesmen and farmers that to be a tramp now has lost its odium. It is sech a common thing now days for the sherilf to t'i'n the key against the industrious merchant or frugal tradesman because of lack of (him ness and lack of work that it has become seen reaper t; ble to be classed as a trump.

Will they continue this policy; will the practical, sensible business and laboring man con tinue to vote in power the gang that has wrought so much disaster until the whole country goes down in the sea of bankruptcy? ,Tuk populist cause in the twelfth judicial districctis booming in every sense. It is generally conceded that W. L. Greene will be elected judge and his majority is placed at no less than 1,000.' Gold standard or "over produc tion" has placed the price of corn at 11 to 15 cents in Nebraska, and this after two or three failures of crops. How is the farmer to pay his taxes, interest, store bills and mortgage at such prices? O.nk dollar will pay for this pa per from now until January 1, 1897. During the coming presidential year the lN!r:i'i.MKN r will be manned by some of the ablest edi torial talent in the United States and you cannot ailord to be with out it- Subscribe now and induce your neighbor to. Ii is claimed by some that the IJ. & M. is not in the present cam paign to any great extent, neither state or local. That last year the strikers carried on such a reckless, boodle campaign that eastern and foreign stock holders have called a halt to such high handed bribery and corporation as too expensive and pernicious. What did the people of Lincoln gain by electing a liberal republi can city government las; spring? The city is overrun with cjuestion ablc characters, officers have been hauleel out of bawdy horses in a drunken maudlin state, councilmen been found in colored dens of vice, the treasury looted by robber contracts and vice and crime have had their own way. The masses of the republican party are decent, respectable people and we doubt if they will endorse such a conduct of affairs by their vote this fall. Thk people are mad. That wave of prosperity which John Sherman promised them would follow the demonetization of silver has failed to appear. ' They are poor and in debt, and their business and their homes going to the bow-wows is it any woniler they are mad? The republican and democratic parties have been making promises for years which they never fulfilled. If you want to make the average American citizen mad just lie to him a few times and let him catch you at it. Wk are told by the plutocrats tint the distress of the people can not be relieved by legislation. If this is trrue w hy do they want legis lation? Why did they ask to be re lieved from the income tax? Why did they ask for the demonetiza tion of silver? Vhy do they ask to be fre e from taxation on their bonds? Why do they, ask the exclusive privilege of issuing paper money? Why do they ask for franchises that are worth millions of dollars? why do tiny keep a horde of paid lobbyists at our national and state legislatures to intlut nee letfishtion? lint we might sunt the whole thing up in one question.

General Thayer's speech to the voters of the Fourth ward Tuesday night, is a moral curiosity, and is a fit epitome of the conscience of a political party hardened through corruption and iniquity carried on through a series of years of office holding uninterrupted by the break ing in of any other party, until within the last few years the popu lists succeeded in making a break in the line. According to Thayer'9 speech, the cardinal doctrine of the republi can party seems to be that a Ne braska state official exists for the sole -purpose of drawing a salary and making as much money out of the taxpayers as possible. The question of serving the state does not seem to be at all consid ered. His chief grievance against Judge Maxwell seems to be that alter Judge Maxwell had received $ 70000 lor able service rendered to the state the Judge had bolted the republi can party, and had been guilty of ingratitude, as though the members of that party had paid Judge Max well's salary out of their own pock ets. The query comes in here, where, in the republican scheme of things do the people with their votes and tax paying powers come in? The people of the state evidently don't exist from the repulican standpoint. He says that "the republican who votes against his ticket is a moral traitor." What if the republican ticket is composed of such men as Mosher, Hill, Dorgan and others of that ilk, of penitentiary defalcation anel insane asylum "steals" fame. He says "The nominees of onr party have a moral right to demand of every republican his vote." Is that according to the princi ple of "honor among thieve?" But perhaps the funniest part of Thayer's address was where he ap pealed to voters to vote for Sam Low because "Sam Low is a poor man." No question of qualification for service seems to fnter into Thayer's mind. These are his literal words "let Elias Baker step down and out and let Sam Low a poor man, step in". We remember in the course of our experience a man who was appointed superintend ent of a certain instutition. He was really half witted, and was re moved for incaptcity. Those who recommended his appointment were asked why they did so. The answer was "O, he was so poor, and he was such a good Sun day school teacher". The really extraordinay part of Thayer's speech is where he said that "it was stated that E. Baker has built a nice house this last season, but he did not build it till the last year of his term of office. Now let Sam Low take the po sition of district clerk anil I pledge you my word he will build as good a house the first year of his office and I pledge you my word, also, that before the end of his first term, he will have built two houses as good as Baker's. Give him a chance". Docs Thayer mean to say that Sam Low's capacity for making money out of his office will be trip pie the capacity of Baker? Thayer charges someol the best men in the state with having bolted the republican ticket because they wanted more office. Might it not U that these men bolted the ticket because the consciences of these men would not allow them lo af hlhato with tin 11 who showed such moral turpitude anil want of pub lie coiieienct as that violated by I hai r in I is bpeeeh to ihg voters of the I'oorth ward WiU some l! put hc ui please tell us how old l!tier is?
