An ap peal has been taken. j As goon as a republican Is elected to the legislature In Nebraska, the railroads appoint a guardian for him who looks after him, furnishes him with passes and such other little things a republican legislator requires. Some of these railroad guardians have half a dozen legislative wards to manage, but none are neglected. The first thing Is always to provide them with passes. The .funniest thing in all the world is to watch one of thes railroad wards as he lounges around the hotels or walks up and down the streets, Imagining that he is a states man. Some of them really believe that they are. They will all go home this week on a pass while the coun ty will pour our curses on their heads The republican papers of the state with the exception of the Lincoln Star, are devoting most of their space to denouncing the legislature as a lot of pass grabbers and railroad tools. But two years from now, every one of them be supporting another lot of re publicans of the same sort for the same offices. It is written down in the book that whatever a republi can paper may do between elections, when a campaign is on, it must be 'regular." They are searching for the body of Paul Jones and congress has appro priated $35,000 to help find it. Jones was buried in a small grave In Paris which has since been abandoned and built over. Notwithstanding that the genius of Paul Jones first gave stand ing on the sea to the United States of America, he was neglected by this gov ernment after the war was over. Paul Jones lived in "the age of liberty." We have now passed on to "the age of wealth,' and the signs of the last stage ofn ational existence "the age of decay" are appearing on every hand. It was not economic force that condition the action of Paul " Jones when his ship was so nearly shot to pieces that the nglish canon balls passed through it without touching anything, replied to the call to sur render: "I haven't begun to fight yet." Secretary Taft has been invited to preside over the Ohio state republican convention , on May .16 and . 17. The suspicion enters some minds , that the Invitation emanates from the , old Hanna guard, who wish to undermine Foraker's presidential boom ? right at home. 1 ' " Most of the time for ten years Dela: ware has had but one senator, and the adjournment of the legislature last week without an election will leave the state for two years with but one senator. Addicks has carried1 on his campaign of corruption for ten years and Delaware is to be congratulated that she has been able to keep such a villian out of the senate. If Addicks had resided in Nebraska, he would have been in the senate long ago. Shrewd lawyers who . have been watching the government moves in the so-called prosecution of the beef trust all declare that there will be no crim inal indictments. The grand jury will adjourn without returning any bills. So far, no witnesses have been called who are not known to be employed by the beef trust or friendly to it. ' The Nebraska legislature is getting great notoriety in the east for killing the anti-pass bill. The Springfield Re publican says that these men will have " some tough questions to answe'r when they:, go back to their constituents. That won't trouble them a bit. If they escape a rope they will be happy. Among the infamous bodie calling themselves state legislatures, that one out in Colorado must not be forgotten. It seated a man as governor who never received a vote for that office, and it passed an eight-hour bill that makfis the workman liable to a fine if he don't work eight hour's, but puts no penalty on the corporation that f orces " the workman to labor twelve hours a day m occupations dangerous to life and health. If any of these men who have been sitting in -legislature . came hanging round the back door for a nand-out m tzie near tuture, the good citizen will serve his state by putting them in irons and handing them over to , the , sheriff as incorrigible crimin als.. ':' . - : As the time for the president's trip the southwest approaches, it mav not be Impertinent to ask if he is to travel again on free special trains, or is to pay his fare. Railroad legislation is to come up In congress next au tumn, and there will be a point gained if the president does not again expose himself to attack by traveling, in vio lation of the law, at the expense of the railroads. Statistics recently compiled In re gard to the collection of income taxes indicate a decided improvement in the economic situation in Prussia. In 1904 there were a total of 4,133,539 income tax payers, whose ' total incomes amounted to $2,254,026,260, upon which the paid a total tax - of $45,512,965. Whenever one thinks of our supreme court which, after holding: for eiehtv years that an income tax was constitu tional, ai at once, came to the conclu sion that it was unconstitutional, he cannot help holding that court in su preme contempt. The rich of Prussia are forced to pay a considerable por tion of the taxes. Here taxes are thrown wholly upon the consumer. Mayor McClellan announces that he does not believe in the public owners ship of municipal utilities. The mayor is the official representative of the eastern democracy. How is that pos ition to be harmonized with Bryan's public ownership declarations? The democratic party is as widely divided as it ever was and all the declarations that is it now in perfect harmony is false. , The great measure of the Nebraska republican legislature was a bill to suppress the Christian Scientists. That was the extreme height that those statesmen reachel. In speaking of this wonderful legislative " act the York Times says:1 "If Christ should come to Nebraska and do as He did in Galilee, 1900 years ago he would be ar rested and fined and if He did not pay the fine He would be sent to prison and we could not have the miserable consolation of shirking the responsi bility as Pilate did, by saying:"I find no fault in Him. " , Rev. Washington Gladden in a' far raal protest to the committee that re ceived . $100,000 from Rockefeller for the foreign missionary society of the Congregational church, says: 'It is often assumed, I fear, that we do not have to be very scrupulous about money we. can usepabeweeispua-saR money which we can use in 'doing good.' That indifference is deadly. The 'good' that is - done by lowering our ethical standards might better be left undone. Shall the , young men and women of the misionary colleges be taught to regard Mr. Rockefeller as a great benefactor? The colleges might better be permanently closed." That is exactly the position that The Inde pendent has always taken in regard to Rockefeller donations. A copy of that We For a Disease On every bottle of Liquozone we of fer $1,000 for a disease germ that it can not kill. We do this tc assure you that Liquozone does kill germs. And it is the only way known to kill germs in the body without killing the tissues, too. Any drug that kill3 germs is a poison, and it cannot be taken in ternally.' Medicine is almost helpless in any germ disease. It' 'is this fact which gives Liquozone. it3 "worth to humanity; a worth so great that, after testing the product for two years, through physicians and hospitals, we paid $100,000 for the American rights. And we have spent over, one million dollars, in one year, to buy the first bottle and give it free to each sick one who would try it. 1 Acts Like Oxygen Liquozone ia not made by com pounding drugs, nor is there any alco hol in it. Its virtues are derived sole ly from gas largely oxygen gas by a process requiring Immense apparatus and 14 days' time. This process has, for more than 20 yeare, been the con stant subject of scientific and chemical research.,; 1 . ' "' The result is a liquid that does what oxygen does. It is a nerve food and blood food the most helpful thing in the world to you. Its effects are ex hilarating, vitalizing, purifying. Yet it 13 an absolutely certain germicide. The reason Is that germs are vegetables; In his speech before democratic editors last week here in Lincoln, Louis F. Post said: "To be a member of the democratic party, that does not make a man a democrat The demo cratic party has a whole job-lot of members who don't believe that there is any such thing as te rights of man. It has a whole Job-lot of members who would like to use it to -trample upon the rights of man. I know many republicans who are better democrats than same members of the democratic party. There are plenty of populists who are better democrats than lots of men who have got themselves stamped with the democratic trade mark. The question is not whether we are loyal to the democratic party. It is whether we are true to the democratic party." That was a direct slap at the doctrine of "regularity." Among the other infamies that the Colorado legislature has been guilty of was gerrymandering the legislative and Judicial districts so as to make sure to elect a military, plutocrat to the United States senate and get judges in the great mining and smelt ing districts that will stand always and all the time for corporations and fight organized labor. . Every man acquainted with college work knows, that with the exception of the department of mathematics, a new set of text books are required every five years, for the old ones are out of date on account of new discoveries. It appears now that the sacred Dar winian theory is about to go the way of so many others and something else will take . its place, ft, Hugo DeVries, professor of botany in the university cf Amsterdam, has just published a new work in which he thinks that he has proven that abrupt transitions, or mutations, govern the origin of species rather than the slow and many-linked process which Darwin believed to be the method. This would account for the failure to discover the "mising links," since it would make connecting links largely unnecessary. This the ory discards the monkey origin of man. Man appeared by a sudden "mu tation" -. and . not by the billion year process of Darwinian evolution. The proof of these sudden mutations which De Vries presents, goes a long way to ward establishing his contention. When the contradictory and fake dispatches have all been gone over in regard to the situation in Manchuria, it appears that the Japanese are not pressing the retreat of the Russians, but rather are repairing the railroads and making preparations to hold what thpiv have while preparing to advance upon Vladivostok. One thing is cer tain. All the Russians have on the Pa cific in the shape of islands, harbors and seal fisheries, will be taken by the Offer $ Germ That Liquozone Can't Kill and Liquozone like an excess of oxy genis deadly to vegetal matter. Liquozone goes into the stomach, into the bowels and into the blood, to go wherever the blood goes. No germ can escape it and none can re sist it. The results are inevitable, for a eerm disease must end when the germs are killed. Then, Liquozone, acting 3s a wonderful .tonic, quickly restores a condition of perfect health. Diseases which have resisted medi cine for years yield at once to Liquo zone, and it cure3 diseases which medi cine never cures. Half the people you meet wherever you are can tell you of cures that were made by it. Germ Diseases These are the known germ diseases. All that medicine can do for", these troubles is to help Nature overcome the germs, and such results are, indi rect and uncertain. Liquozone attacks the germs, wherever they are. And when the gerrrs which cause a disease are destroyed, the disease . must end, and forever. That is inevitable.

The stuff for the most part is Journalistic drivel, yet there 13 enough in them to lead to the conclu sion that peace is being pressed upon the Czar by many who have until late ly been of the war party. The great est boost that has been given to tne neace Idea has come from the French: bankers who have refused to try to oat another Russian loan and Russia has been trying to raise money by a domestic loan. On the other hand the Japanese loan of $150,000,000 was in stantly gobbled up. No official reDort has yet been made of the amount of spoils that the Jap anese captured, but they run, in stores alone, into the millions. The Kussians lost all of their siege guns, besides hundreds of field gun. In all the his tory of ars, there has never before been captured as spoils of war one half as much in war material and sup plies after a battle, as after the battle of Mukden. There has been no news of Togo's eet since it was sighted off Singa pore, but the dispatches have an nounced that the Russian neet nas left the ports of Madagascar. WThere it could ro is somewhat of a mystery. If it took to the broad ocean and es caped Togo, it could not enter the port of Vladhrastok. There are not only a lot of Japanese warships around the mouth of that harbor, but the Japan ese have sown the adjacent waters with mines. Increase in State Debt. The folowing shows the anticipated condition, of state debt, based on ap DroDriations already made and those pending, and upon the estimated re ceipts as shown by the report oi the state auditor, which estimated receipts are based on a 4 1-2 mill general fund levy on a grand assessment roll of J294.000.000: ' Total of appropriation bill s$3,85S,978.74 Deducting aggregate of" - temporary university and other special funds. .... 770,712.06 Liability for biennium . . $3,088,266.68 Less estimated ; . general fund receipts .......... 2,819,244.71 Net increase of debt. . . , $ 2692,01.97 When those figures, which were printed in the State Journal, were pre sented to a good old republican war horse, as he leaned up against a door jam. of a saloon, he at first denied the fact set forth.
