THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT JULY 9, 1903. A DEL MAR EDITION l Mr. Ogl mi Oregon aargffsia in The leitef below, from George Ogla, one of the staunch populists of Ore gon, will be found interesting not only at showing the condition of the peo ple's party there, but also as to his suggestion of an Alexander - Del Mar Edition of The Independent. As to the suggestion, The Indepen dent believes it a good one, but if it it carried out it must necessarily be lut. off some time yet. We do not wish to make a "fad" of the special edition idea and therefore must proceed leis urely so as to give our readers a hance. in digest, what they have read. UndcubtedlyMr. Ogle's praise of Mr. Del Mar's writings is not a whit too great, and an edition quoting some of his most striking passage would be an eye-opener for those who have pever read his books. Mr. Ogle says: ' Editor Independent: Enclosed find $1.10; $1.00 to renew my subscription to The Independent, the best paper published, and 10 cents to send sample topie3 to the list of my friends whose names I enclose. . . The populist party in Oregon is dis rupted, but its former members are rot all dead nor backslidden from the cardinal principles of the true faith; not by a long shot Some, it is true, have turned traitor and joined the g o. p.; some have allied themselves with the socialist movement; other'? are working with the democrats it the hopes that the reorganizers will not conquer the Bryan, or populistic element of that party; but many of u3. among whom is the present writer, own allegiance to no party; still clix to the cardinal tenets of the old faitti and are waiting, waiting until the democracy decides whether to advance tc higher and more radical ground and live, or to go backward, try the experiment of running rival trains on the same track, 1. e., ape the repub lican platform and policy and die in consequence; when a new party on populist lines can be organized. , But 'While waiting it may be well to do some quiet missionary work. Your idea of Henry George and Karl Marx editions is splendid, but why r.ot publish a Del Mar Edition? This would - do; more to advance populist principles than either of the others, good as they undoubtedly will be. Whatever may be the merits of Mr. Theobald's accusations against Cap tain Ashby, he certainly does not err in his high estimation of Alexander Del Mar. Destroy all other writings on money except the works of this particularly acute thinker, and the science of money would be far better understood than it is today. He con tinually drives home the truth that underlies the real populist idea, "lim itation is the very essence of money." And his style is perfect; it equals that of Buckle, the English historian and philosopher, and higher praise than this hath no man. What do you say? Is it possible to bring out such an edition in the near future?" Would suggest a chapter or two from the "Science of Money," one or two from several of his many oth er books, particularly his debate with Prof. Thorold Rogers in the London chamber of commerce on the silver question in which he completely de molished . the noted Englishman. V I would speak for 100 copies now and perhaps take many more. .-- Here's more pcrfer to The Indepen dent- v - : GEO. OGLE. ' Molalla, Ore.

Thriving Nebraska Company. The people of Nebraska are begin ning to realize the advantages to the state and all the people to be derived from building up home institutions. This is particularly true in the in surance business. There is no rea son whatever why a Nebraskan should go east to buy his life insurance. In many cases the rates are higher and the safety of the company is not as good as . the home company. The SECURITY MUTUAL LIFE Insurance Company of Lincoln is a thriving company that deserves the careful consideration and liberal pat ronage of all Nebraska people. The following, is the certificate of author ity from the state auditor for the cur rent year: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA STATE OF NEBRASKA Office of AUDITOR OF PUBLIC ACCOUNTS. It is hereby certified, that the Se curity Mutual Life Insurance company, a domestic life Insurance company, has been reorganized and reincorporated under the name of The Security Mu tual Life Insurance Company of Lin coln, Nebraska, and has fully com plied with act of the legislature en titled "An act to regulate the organiza tion and operation of life insurance companies on the. mutual, level prem ium, legal reserve plan," approved April 14, 1903, and authority is hereby given The Security Mutual Life Insur tnce Company of Lincoln, Nebraska, to do a general business of insurance on the lives of individuals on the mu tual, level premium, legal reserve plan, and all and every insurance per taining thereto or connected there with, including the granting, purchas ing and disposing of annuities and en dowments.

A Few QueslioriS Editor Independent: I would" lik3 to ask a few questions about the treaty between this great nation and the sultan of Sulu: 1. Why was th treaty entered in to and approved by our president? 2. What duties does this sultan and his datoes perform to earn their sal ary? Are they on the civil service list? 3. How many wives has this old Mohammedan got, and how many con cubines? 4. How many slaves has he got? 5. How long will it take the slaves to earn their market price "workirg for nothing" a day? 6. Are the sultan and his datoes all pirates and cannibals? 7. Have any Christian preachers gene into this old sultan's den to act p.s missionaries? ' 8. Have any young lady school teachers gone into his harem to edu cate his children?; if so, what success are ' they having? - ' 9. When our government was mak ing these treaties why did they not make a treaty with AguinaTdo, and pay bim a salary and establish' a protec torate over bim nd other sultans and datoes? Why did not Funston go and catch this sultan and give him the water cure? T, J. QUAIL. Watertown, Neb. (The speech of Hon. Malcolm R. ratterson of Tennessee, delivered in the house March 26, 1902, and printed in the Congressional Record of April 1, 1902, will give Mr. Quail unequivo cal answers to his questions. The In dependent hopes to republish this speech in the near future, but right at the present time Its space is so crowd ed with other matter that it cannot be done. It is possible that Mr. Patter son may have had his speech printed ir pamphlet form. A letter addressed to him at Memphis, Tenn., requesting a copy of his speech would doubtless receive careful attention. Most Amer ican citizens know the answers to Mr Quail's questions In a general way. but Mr. Patterson's speech presents the facts in such an undeniable man r.er that The Independent would rather wait and reprint than attempt , any categorical answers to Mr. Quail on its own account.

Left Them Out The appearance at the White house of President Benjamin Ide Wheeler of the University of California has attracted much attention and revived , story of a month ago in which the president of the United States and President Wheeler were the central figures. It will be recalled that when President Roosevelt was in California he dedicated the University of Califor ria. r The dedicatory ceremonies was held in the university's amphitheatre which William Randolph Hearst donated to the university. It is well known that Mrs. Phoebe Hearst, the mother oi Representative Hearst, is the chief benefactor of the University of Jai'. fornix She was made a regent of the state because of her munificent donations to this institution. For four years she has devoted her self exclusively to this seat,, of learn ing. She began by announcing a world-wide competition for the univer sity plans and these plans alone cost ultimately ?100,000V Her totai contri butions are said to aggregate i,uul- President Wheeler on the occasion of the dedication ceremonies read the names of all the donors except those of Mrs. and Mr. Hearst. The Califor nia press and Calif ornians generally were indignant at this omission..- No one could understand why the name of the chief benefactors of the univer Ritv should be omitted when the names oi! persons contributing comparatively small amounts were read, more man 8,000 persons were said to be present it the amDhitheatre when the exer cises occurred and President Wheeler did not mention the name of Heam, rresnmahlv because he feared there would be a great, popular demonstra tion on the part of the audience and this demonstration on the part oi tne crrfionre it is assumed, would have been annoying to President Roosevelt. The latest news, theretore, tnai President Wheeler was a guest at the White, house for three days and is now mentioned as the one likely to be appointed as minister to ine Hague is. attracting general attention. Ts President Wheeler now receiving hia reward for sutmressinjr the name o: Hearst?. Is, he to ' be sent to The Hague as an evidence of the tact, tna, the -president is 'grateful -tor him for failing to mention tae iamuy.uame m California is revered and esteemed? But after all the main questions t re ; ' Why did President Wheeler fail to mention the name of Hearst at the dedication ceremonies? Did President Roosevelt request Fresident Wheeler to ignore the names? If so, why should President Roose elt have objected to the mention of the names and the natural demonstra tion of enthusiasm that would have resulted? California Is said to be so indignant ever this remarkable situation that President Wheeler mav well feel It necessary to have a -soft spot selected for alighting purposes and there is eminent propriety in the administra tion furnishing the spot.

POPE LEO XIII GREATEST OF MODERN SUCCES SOR TO ST. PETER AND HEAD OF THE ROMAN CATH . OLIC, CHURCH, MADE KISTOFlY WHILE POPE Because of His Ability, Deep Relig ; ious Convictions, Honesty and Absolute Sincerity. . Protestant or Catholic, Jew or Gen tile, Buddhist or Mohammedan, believer or agnostic, every thinking man joins vith the earnest people of the Roman Catholic church in sorrow for the greatest pope of modern times, Leo Xlli. From every point of view this prelate has been distinguished. He was good as well as great, far-seeing as well as practical, a man of God, tut possessing a heart that appre ciated the conditions' under which men 'live. He was peculiarly adaptel to "the age which placed upon him the great responsibility of religious lead ership ! . '. r - - THE VATICAN AT ROME ! E.ttho time when in the enjoyment oi temporal authority exerted so potent and useful ah influence upon the af fairs of the world as under Leo XIII. rhorn of earthly scepter. In every encyclical of this great man, strength nf intellect, depth of religious convic tions and sympathy with mankind are cl.aracteristic. The public utterance. of the head of the church will immor talize him and no regal power could strengthen his hold vpon the think ing people of the world. THE BANKERS RESERVE LIFE in its weekly review of events cannot omit the above tribute to one whoso career has been so conspicuously able, righteous and influential. Mr. M. M. Johnson, the well-known inventor of the Sure Hatch Incubator and promoter of the Sure Hatch-Incu-bstor Co., has sold his interest in the company to his partners and will build a new factory, for the manufac ture of a new and improved incubator. He has had remarkable success in the past and it is believed that his new move will prove equally successful. Readers of The Independent should examine the advertisements In Its col umns.
