f AOE U life Nebraska. Indopondont The Church and Rockefeller Cincinnati, Ohio, April 2. At the Vine Street Congregational church, the pastor, Herbert S. Bigelow, discussed the attitude of the church toward . Standard Oil money. He said in part: It is a signifiicant sign of the times that a man so sober and even so con servative in his thought and utter ance as Dr. Washington Gladden should be outspoken, in his objection to Standar Oil money. He asserts that this money is the product of the most, relentless rapacity known to modern commercial history," and that the church which accepts it invites "the contempt of millions of honest men." . A few. years ago, I attended a meet ing of clergymen where Henry D. Lloyd's book, Wealth Versus Common wealth, was reviewed and discussed. The ministers, one and all, expressed complete sympathy with Mr. Lloyd's indictment of -the Standard Oil company.- But they were almost as unani mous in the opinion that a preacher ought not to jeopardize the peace of his congregation by treating such sub- jects in the pulpit. Now consider the memorial of the ; New England preachers in objecting : to taking this money on the ground that the methods of the Standard Oil company are "morally iniquitous and ,' socially" destructive," and in refusing J to be put "in a relation implying honor ! toward the donor." While this is gratifying as evidence of the increasing interest that good people are taking In social problems, It leaves much to be desired. This Is not wholly an individual problem, and we do not reach the root of the mat ter by pointing a finger of scorn at particular individuals. . Primarily it is a question of wise or unwise social arrangements. The remedy is to be found in social readjustments, not In personal denunciation. , i All know that the inordinate power of the Standard Oil company has been built up, "very largely by discrimina tion in railroad rates. It is not enough that the church should denounce1 as bad the men who have profited by such discrimination. It is . more Important to teach people the need of taking the railroads out of private hands, that passenger and freight rates may be as impartial as the price of postage stamps. Mr. Rockefeller is not more a knave ? that the other fellows have .been fools. If the rest of us had given more thought to public questions we would have owned our own railroads, and he could not then have done all this wickedness. Would it not be more Christian for us to repent or our neg- lect than to declare from the house- tops our scorn or nimi Surely the people who have done and doing nothing to correct these conditions can not escape their share of the guilt. Their indictmenj does not carry the weight it should, because they do not come into court with clean hands. Others hav been guilty of sins of commission. We have sinned grievously by our political prejudices and our mental sloth and neslect of civic duties. . , I' ll the 'good people of this country had had the intelligence and the public spirit which a citizen of the great re public ight to have, a Rockefeller would be an imposibility. Therefore, repentance is more in order than cen sure. - - ' : .

A successful business man is a. "Me.9cot" to his m&ny p&trons and title nothing Uuu guciraii lik success. In Central Nebraska, (the garden spot of Nebraska) ,1s located the up-to-date business town of St. Paul, Nebr.,' this Is the home of the most snccessiul business man and largest importer of drati and coach stallions in U. S. He is an expert horseman.- A thorough successful business man (with ideas all his owu).- A hustler SJ65 days In the year. This is frank lams, the bestjioted and best advertised Importer of 1st class draft and coach stallions in America to day. He begun business there 25 years ago with 3 stallions, to-day he owns and sells more registered pure bred draft and coach stallioDs tlian any man in the V. a His motto has been, do business With moneyed men that are succes&ful business men, make every represent action good, sells 1st class stallions $1000 cheaper than any competitor. Frank lams is doing this every day, in selling stallions in every btate, Canada and Mexico. He is saving thousands of dollars to stallion buyers by his manner of doing business. Here is the qailkln the cocoanut why lams can and does sell 1st class stallion') at $1000 cheaper than competitors. lams bnjs stallions by the train load, uses his own money, owns his stallions, houses, barns, farms and stocks, has no 2 to 10 men as partners to divide profits with, buys and sells every stallion himself, pays no "Gold brick stallion salesmen" to "Flim-floLm' Stock companies with 4th rate stallions at 3U 0 to $6000 and a worthless guarantee. Inms sells direct to uters and saves his many buyers all "commissions" and "middle-men's profits, lams buys stallions direct lrom breeders in Europe without aid of interpreter, (this 9aves 20 per cent on every stallion). lams speaks the langu- . ages and gets in close touch with the breeders ot Europe. He is a horseman born, (not made to toder at Agricultural schools). His record at the lending state lairs is one continued round of success. The very name of Frank lams owning a stallion, stamps him as a "Top Notcher" His "Peaches and Cream" stallions are noted the world over as the "best ever". His way of doing business is unique, but grand as he is saving Mr. Stallion buyer $1C00 or more on every stallion and selling them a much better horse, lams handles stallions that are such grand, indi. viduals oi merit that they sell themselves. He handles stallions so good, big. finished and of royal breeding that they do not have to be "ped dled" or put into "branch barn mens" hands to"be sold. lams is a sure "Mascot" to stallion buyers, as he saves all commissions branch barns mens, and middle-mens profits, tarns seUV'Top-notchers" at $1,000 to 11,500, guaranteed better then any Co., stallion sold at Sii.000 to S'i.000. ... . . . ...

His sweepstakes stallions and largest pair ot stallions in U. S. are a whole show and in a class by themselves. Go and see lams the live, hustling horseman, that has his "selling: clothes" on seven days in the week and ntalcA. the Wheels or business no around, vou will sure find hums (nil to th rnof at stalltana toanitrnn anH imas prices" on stallioiis for 60 days.

I. have; watched the fusion deal ever since the: greenback party fused and died, but its principles still live.- I've watched the democratic . party, ever since . and never : saw ; the time . when they were not ready to fuse with any thing, or(any body, if . they, could see anj-t chance of . getting just one more office by so doing even to fusing with thej republicans to steal the governor ship of Nebraska from the . populists when elected without the aid or con sent of .. any other party on : earth. That; was the only fusion I. ever saw that suited me until both old parties fused in the last , campaign and now I am suited again. If it's true as re ported that Bryan and 'Teddy have agreed to, a fight (sham, of course), on revision of the, tariff - in the next, campaign and. try to fool the people some more and especially to keep them divided and divide the -. spoils as they have been doing ever since the old democratic party died its 'nat ural death at " the ; end of James Bu chanan's term. But the people wont be fooled all the time. "'It's. only a short time since Uncle Mark of revered memory, said, "There .are no trusts," and; every mullet head in these United States echoed: "Yep, that's so." But that did not make, it so. -Several states and even a republican president have rec ognized them at last and are going to bust them when Gabriel blows his horn. Even the subsidized press Is howling about them or at least about some. , of i the smaller ones like the Beef, Steel and Standard Oil trusts, but not a mother son of them Is say ing a word about the mother of them all. They are just creating a diver sion to raise a cloud of dust and smoke to blind the people while they pass over the reins or tne government Into Its hands, then If it don't take care of its brood, it will be because too many of the people take the things seriously. " ' ' A Jit ' J .. ; . - i They may make too much smoke and a blaze get started which they can't control as was the case in 1893 when they started in just to give the people "an object lesson." It's an object les son to watch Teddy swing his club at the trusts, while his Apestle Paul awards contracts for steel to the high est bidder, so we can have some more free libraries which we are taxed to pay for. Should it be spelled "steel" or "steal"? ,1 wonder if Paul gets any rebate on the deal? That's the way they are' going to steal the popu list platform, but don't worry, they won't come any nearer to getting any of the essential principles than Bryan did to getting our .financial plank in 1896. Yours for fusion with all in fa vor" of honest reform on all the essen tial principles of the greenback, unior labor and populist platforms, and some other necessary reforms, without re gard to past affiliations., " GEO.
