A vote for McKinley means to in
crease the power of the Corporations
extend the lines of our government un
til the poor people who are already bur
dened with taxes will be ground down
to the earth and like the peasants of
foreign countries will be renters and
taxed until every hours labor willc be
necessary for their maintenance
Picture the giant corporations with
McKinley as their ITord Protector
standing oyer the poor people who
must labor every hour in the day un
der peril of starvation or be cast into
prison for debts as were the first set
tlers who were brought over from Eng
land by Jas Oglethorpe to settle Geor
gia in 1783 These persons were re
leased from prison where they were
cast fur non payment of debts to go
to a land where Colonists were wanted
There will be no such opportunities
hereafter for poor people as there are
no new countr ies to colonize
Wouldnt it be well to vote right on
these questions before the power has
all been taken from us to help our
S words points indicates the intimacy
of two famous editors on the Elkhorn
railroad if one would judge from the
articles that appear in the editorial
columns of those papers Editorially
speaking there has been some clever
work done in the write ups given eash
other As prizefighters the editors
might be said to administer knock out
blows without ending the fight We
ar e wondering what the next round
will be
The Boers are still fighting and ac
cording to telegrams sent by Lord Rob
erts it is impossible for the British to do
anvthing with them as the Boers are
entrenched in the mountain gulches
where horsemen cannot venture and
British dare not go on foot Hurrah
for the Boers and their cause Down
with imperialism at home and abroad
Make way for Liberty
Vote for W F Hay ward for senator
if you feel the need of a man who will
look after the stockmens interest Mr
Hayward is a man who has lived long
enough in the west to know just how
to promote our best interests and be
ing a man of superior qualifications
will have a great deal of influence m
the state senate
The reform forces if united could
easily win and many reforms would be
inaugurated By dividing nothing is
gained A republican victory this fall
will be construed to mean an endorse
ment of the colonial policy the estab
lishment of a large standing army and
approval of the trust system Four
years more will accomplish much on
these lines if given encouragement
again Notico the increase of trusts in
the last three years and think twice be

President McKinleys surrender of a
block of notoriously American territory
in Alaska to Great Britain will be used
on the stump by Democratic orators
National exasperation is likely to
grow intense when tne act i3 shown
up in its true colors The- cession was
unnecessaryinexcusable and perfidious
By this executive action without
the consent of Congress the British
flag floats over a strip of territory ap
proximately 300 miles long and 20
miles wide which since 1825 has been
the undisputed possession first of
Russia and later of the United States
It has been prospected and developed
by American enterprise
It is full of American citizens Not
a single American member of the Joint
High Commission could be brought to
consider Great Britains claim to this
territory Yet operating under a mo
dus vivendi McKinely and Hay have
followed the views of Lord Paunceforte
of Preston until the excutive act of
surrender and Salisbnry was given
what he wanted The Verdict
No amount of falsehood on the part
of republican papers can destroy the
splendid record of Adlai E Stevenson
as a public official While in congress
his influence was always on the side of
the producers He was elected to
gether with Grover Cleveland in 1892
upon a platform which declared We
hold to the use of both gold and silver
as the standard money of the country
and to the coinage of both gold and sil
ver without discrimination against
either metal or charge for mintage
Cleveland became a gold standard man
while Stevenson remained true to his
pledge and today he is a consistent
running mate for Bryan and a worthy
competitor of the brilliant and match
less Chas A Towne All honor to
both Stevenson and Towne one the
consistent democratic bi metallist the
other a self sacrificing statesman Be
atrice News
McKinley has driven out shot or im
prisoned the Christian leaders of the
Filipinos in Manila and turned the
town over to the heathen Chinee who
has established his opium joints on
evey street and opened up a market
for slave girls American courts give
certificates of concubinage which is a
worse form of polygamy than ever ex
isted in the Sulu Islands He made a
treaty with Mohammedan protected
him in his property in slaves and gave
him a pension The Christian men of
Manila he would not treat with but
drove them nto the wilderness slaugh
tered them by the thousands imprison
ed them by the hundreds taxed them
beyond endurence and calls all that
spreading the gospel of Christ Neb
raska Independent
Shirt sleeve diplomacy of the
McKinley-Day-Hay brand i3 like
Pompeys pillarconspicuous by itself
Official Washington is not surprised
at the news that the United States
must now pay to Spain an additional
100000 for the islands of Cibitu and
Cagaybu which McKinley and Day
forgot to include in the Philippine
group for which we payed 2000o000
The sale is an object lesson in Mc
Kinley prosperity however It shows
that whereas the United States two
years ago paid only 2 apiece for 10
000000 yellow bellies it now pays
in exces of 12 a head for the 8000 in
habitants of the two islands The
Young man if you vote for Mark
Hannas trusts in the coming Novem
ber you destroy the last hope for your
own future welfare in business If the
trust system is fully established as it
will be in another term of republican
rule that means a complete and perfect
monopoly in every branch of industry
and the youth with limited capital is
thus barred from participitation ex
cept as a servant This system has al
ready destroyed scores of little cities
and thousands of small merchants and
the real work of destruction is as yet
hardly begun Young man help us
save the country by going back to
healthy business

Senator Billy Mason Republican of
Illinois says the British have bluffed
us into giving up American territory in
the Porcupine district He speaks uu
thus about Secretary John Hay He
is too much of a Britisher Ifynnce
forte gives him a dinner and he is woa
Hay is responsible for giving up this
territory I object to maintaining a
British official meaning Hay at the
expense of our Government Mason

rocks to be hurled at Hay next winter

Below is a letter received from the
aged pioneer Martin Rice of Lone
Jack Mo who wrote the famous ap
plication for office published in this pa
per in the issue of July 5 1900 The
editor upon that occasion neglected to
state that Martin Rice was an uncle
and the oldest living relative ne is
the oldest and only member living of a
family of eleven brothers and sisters
and is the oldest living resident now
known of in Jackson county Mo hav
ing lived on the old homestead near
Lone Jack since 1833
Lone Jack Mo August 1900
Editor of The Valentink Demockat
Dear Nephew Since you have seen
proper to reproduce in the columns of
the Democrat that foolish letter of
mine written more than fifty years ago
and published in the Atlanta Constitu
tion in January 1899 in which appli
cation was made for appointment to
office under the administration of Pres
ident Taylor and which is there styled
an important document You may if
you think it will interest your readers
say to them that your old uncle who
wrote that letter is still living and has
outlived the disappointment of not get
ting what he aiked for And that I
haye perhaps outlived all or nearty all
who were successful in like applications
at that time How strange it is and
yet how true that trivial incidents and
circumstances will outlive or be remem
bered when things of momentous im
portance are forgotten And what
could be more natural than that I after
reading that foolish epistle fifty one
years after writing it should go back
retrospectively oyer all the years that
have passed and think of the many
changes and vicissitudes that have oc
curred since then The many many
changes that I have witnessed and the
country has undergone while that silly
production of my pen has been quietly
sleeping in and amongst the mass of
literature in the vaults of the depart
ment at Washington but waked up oc
casionally and published broadcast
over the country Three times if not
oftener has it been dug up by the
clerks in office and given to the public
Little did I think when I wrote that
foolish letter to Gen Taylor that it
would live and be read oftener and by
more men and women than was his in
augural message to Congress
JLittle did I think that it would be
read and remembered when all the men
who were then prominent in the politi
cal history of the country had passed
away Little did I think when writing
it at the age of thirty five that at the
age of eighty five I should read it in a
Nebraska newspaper a state that I had
neyer heard of and that did not then
exist That was in E849 The Kansas
Nebraska bill had not been introduced
in Congress The scramble over it
had not commenced Congressmen
who are now dead and gone were then
in the zenith of their popularity Col
Benton was and had been the ruling
spirit in Missouri But he had refused
to obey the instructions of Missouris
legislature and was appealing to the
people of the state to endorse his action
A short timebefore that letter was writ
ten he made his great speech at Lone
Jack appealing to the voters of the
four counties of Jackson Lafayette
Cass and Johnson For Lone Jack
was thenan older town and more noted
than Kansas City and the action of
that meeting he claimed was the ver
dict of the four counties in his favor
That was the year of the gold excite
ment in California and that letter of
mine was written while the thousands
of Forty niners were making their way
across the great uninhabited plains
which are now teeming with a busy
These and many such arejthe changes
that time has wrought I could say
much more contrasting that day with
this but it is unnecessary
Maetik Rice
Dont forget that Hon Wm Neville
is the man who made the glorious cam
paign for congress that defeated Kin
kaid last year for the unexpired terai
He is worthy of your hearty support
Republicans brag about the big sur
plus and the unheard of revenue But
thej do not tell us who pays the taxes
Any goyernment can have a surplus by
tsxing the people Ii phis government
taxed the millionaires in proportion to
their wealth as compared with the
wealth of the common people the snrr
plus and government expenses would be
cut down mighty quick but as Jong as
the common people pay most of the J
taxes all goes well and their fat sides
shake with laughter -Nebraska Inde

More money has in recent years
been made in copper mining then m
any other stable enterprise as free
from the element of risk The experi
ence ot a common laborer at the same
Calumet and Ilecla Mines is interest
ing He began by investing his sur
plus wages in the stock then his divid
ends and to day is the possessor by
this method of 500 shares of the stock
worth on the market nearly 400G00
Many of the old emplovees of these
mines have accumulated from 10000
to 50000 in the same wsy The
original purchasers of the stock of the
companies now forming the Amalgam
ated Copper Company paid in most in
stances not to exceed 50 per cent of
their par value The market value
to day is at least fourteen times the
amount Solon M Allis O E
formerly United States Deputy Miner
al Surveyor of Tuc3on Arizona was
once offered the great Copper Queen
Mine at Bisbee for 2000 but although
a mining expert he could not appreci
ate its richness then or had not the
cash for it went into other hands and
is worth millions to day Pages might
be filled with instances of both lost
and improved opportunities similar to
the above but all emphasizing the
truth of a statement once made by
John W MacKay the Bonanza King
