THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT " JULY 7, 1001. The Congressional Record is being issued" from the office of the pubiic printer, although congress his been adjourned more than seven weeks. It is filled with republican and pluto cratic speeches never delivered in con gress and which are to be sent free through the mails as campaign docu ments. It is an unparalled outrage. But since plutocracy has control of both parties there is no way to prevent such things. As long as the people ; cor.tinue to vote 'er straight, such , outrages will continue. The fight in Colorado is a fight J against Rockefeller, who owns 70 per cent of the productive gold, silver and copper mines in the Rocky Mountain region. With the cool malignity of a personal devil he has been planning tor ten years to crush out the labor unions. If the unions of Colorado had had a politcal leader like Calder- head of Montana, they would not have been in such a fix as they now find themselves. It is exactly the same crowd in both states that the unions have had to fiJhsssvs It is somewhat amusing to note with what viciousness the underling dailies are pitching into La Follette now that the great bosses have issued their mandate against the reformer. With them, one and all, as soon as they heard the news, La Follette be came a demon, a man without morals, principles or character. The space devoted to denouncing La Follette In the Lincoln Star is only a specimen of what all that breed of newspapers are doing all over the country. Reading between the lines, together with an occasional bit of carelessness in Curtis' letters from the Philippines, reveals'a thing or two of immense in terest to the American people. The railroad franchises and friars' lands are to be turned over to the Standard Oil - crowd. Before that crowd gets through , with them, the Filipinos will be calling on the Lord to send the Spaniards back. Meantime the peo ple of the United States will pay the freight. After the national conventions The Independent will have something to Bay about the taxation of railroads. Just at present it only wishes to an nounce that under this assessment there is $25,000,000 worth of . railroad property in this state that is not as sessed at all and no taxes will be paid upon it. It' consists of the great ter minal property in Lincoln, Omaha and South Omalia. That is the plain truth about the matter. The three great presidents, the' de fenders of the common people, had to organize a new party before anything could be done. Jefferson organized the republican party, Jackson the demo cratic party, and Lincoln the modern republican party. If reform comes now it must be through a new party. There is no more hope for reform in either of the old parties than there was in the time of Jefferson or Lin coln. When some of the wage-workers were gloating over the Philippine war, the reconcentrado camps and things like that, The Independent told them that it would be their turn next. "General" Bell has changed the pro gram only in a very slight manner. Instead of the "water cure" he gives them the thumb-screw and hangs them by the neck until they are nearly dead, to extract confessions. Just at present Rockefeller is sell ing kerosene oil in London for 5 cents a gallon, while out here in Ne braska the people are paying 20 cents. The oil tl at is sold in London conies from fta(S near us in the Texas and Kansas fitlds. Think of the stupidity cf the American people! But it is all rlslit. V'-te 'er straight. After hearing an eloquent discourse upon the necessity of "protection for our Infant Industries," it makes one Bad to learn that these "Infants are the most ancient antiquities known to Americans. President Tarry nays that "pending legislation Inimical to Industrial In tercuts made very little progress to ward paiuagn at the recent session of ronKrrH." lly that ho meant all uch legislation as would benefit labor, ami his assertion Is true. Nevertheless hundreds (f thousands of the wage worker will continue to vote 'er utralght for the men who turned all their tills down.

One of the London archbishops re cently delivered a discourse In which he lamented much over the paganism of that great city. Marie Corelll makes a reply In which she asserts that the paganism of London Is the result of the paganism of the clergy. It seems that I-ondon fields a John Wesley as bad as It did 171 years ago.
