It IK already plain that Suwall's politi cal ship will not conic In this year. An Omaha military company captures the Governor's cup this year. Omaha's winning ways are In evidence every where.

No councilman whose record Is not straight should have the effrontery to ask a renoinlnatlon. With all parties pledged to the sup port of fraternal Insurance the mutual Insurance or anl/.atlons can stand hack and feel safe whichever legislative ticket wins. A clean sweep for MeKinley , MacColl and the republican congressional and stale tickets Is what will make Ne braska n favorite with Investors and turn the stream of ImmiKratlou once more Into this stale. Coin Harvey says that he has taken nn oath not to accept any political of- flee In reward for his services In behalf of the repudiation cause. There is no threatening dimmer that Harvey will be tempted to repudiate his oath. Mclvlnlcy continues to make almost continuous speeches from day to day and , he lias not uttered a .single sen tence that lias lost him votes. To do this requires something more than mere natural aptitude for public speaking. Ono of The Bee's subscribers enters complaint that the motor line operating between Omaha and Council lilnl'fs Is subjecting patrons to unnecessary dis comfort In compelling them to ride In 1 open cars regardless of the chanjre In temperature. This Is a matter that de serves Immediate attention and remedy. The pneumonia trains should be taken off. Two years ape the voters of ( lie Fourth congressional district had their choice between H. .1. Hainer nml W. Ii. Stark and preferred to.place their con- lldeuce In Mr , Hnlnor , the republican. They are now called upon to choose ng.iln between the same candidates and as yet no reason has been ur/ted / why they should not re-elect Mr. Hainer to congress again. It Is announced that an unknown sci entist has discovered a perceptible cool- lug of the earth In France and Itelglnm mid the subsidence of the Swiss Alps. The unknown apparently has so little faith In his achievement Unit he Is ashamed lo have his Identity known. Ho must have some connection with the mathematician who has been figuring Uryan innjorltles In sure republican states. Tom Patterson , who pretends to be ono of the candidates for presidential elector on the republican ticket In Col orado , has been billed for a ppppcli- nmklng tour of Indiana under the aus pices of the democratic nut tonal com mittee. Tom I'atterson always posed as n democrat until ho placed sliver above everything else. This merely shows the spurious character of the pre tended republican ticket In Colorado. The Commercial club not long ago In vited the Hrotherhood of Locomotive Firemen to hold their 1808 convent Ion In Omaha. Local members of the order took up the matter and have pushed It ever since , with fair prospect of suc cess. This year the convention Is at fialveston , Certainly Omaha is much more centrally located and presents In ducements for conventions In ISIS ! that no other city can offer that year. All that Is lacking Is an adequate conven tion IrnlL AVI Hi reference to the pretense of the local Uryan organ that till the prom inent clergymen nro being converted to free coinage , n well known subscriber of The lli residing at Fremont calls attention to the fact that n pall taken on September 14 , 1SSUJ , of the ministers In attendance at the- annual conference of thu ( Jenntin Methodist Kplst-opal churcli , held nt his former home , Pekln , 111 , resulted i : ) for MeKlnley and 1 for IJryan.

Sll.VHIl IX Tllh SUVTlt. The Manufacturers' accord of Haiti- more recently addressed Inquiries to southern manufacturers and business meji regarding their currency views. It received liU replies , l'M of which were unqualifiedly against free silver , regard ing it as a menace to all business in terests. The Ilecord says that running through many of the letters Is the idea that should silver win we will have the worst panic ever known and It makes these observation : "These are not views of theorists ; they are not the predict leas of men who can foolishly he charged witli trying to create a panic. On the contrary , they are the sober fears of hundreds of the fore most manufacturers of the south the men who have been leading that sec tion toward activity and prosperity. " These men , looking at the question in a purely practical way , know that the development of the south , for which they have been laboring , would be 1checked by n change of the .standard of value and a prolonged period of paralysis would ensue. They reali/.e that no more hurtful blow could be struck at the progress of that section than would come from the unlimited coinage of silver. It Is not to be ox(1 peeled that these- business men will be able to do much In most of HIP stales of the south to avert that blow. Hut In some of the states , as Maryland , Dela ware , West Virginia and Kontncky , they can effect much and their efforts are belli ; ? directed , It is believed with most favorable results , lo carrying Ihesc. states for honest money. The popocraHe party bavin- , ' declared against European Interference with American finance and proposed that the United .States .shall have an Independent financiltl system , it is to be presumed that it will not pay any attention to the sympathetic message sent to Mr. Ilryan by the delegates to the agrleul- lural congress at Itnila-l'uHth. These fjen- ( tleinen , who are Pennine blnietalliKls and not silver monomutalllslH , think Hint .Mr. Bryan's election would contribute toward the attainment of international bimetallism and their opinion is entitled - titled to respectful consideration. It Is to bo borne lu mind , however , that they disagree with the foremost financiers and political economists of Knropc and this .country , who assert that thu suc cess of the free silver policy In iTIe United States would certainly be Inimi cal to the cause of international bl- j. mutallltjin. One of the. signers of. this message , Otto Arndt. so declared 4n n pi'.hllshcd article a few months ago and while It appears that he has changed his opinion , that fact does not impair his former argument. One of the most American advocalos of bl- J , mutalllsm , Ceneral Francis A. Walker , said In n recent Intorvlow : "I think U eo Is folly It Is suicidal this attempt to Identify the Interests of bimetal lism with the present free coinage agitation. 1 have conferred with lead- IIIK blmetallfsts In Kttropu and I find that they deprecate the movement In America. In all their advocacy of the rcnionct I/a lion of silver they assume as u necessary condition that this free colntiKO Khali not prevail. " ( ieneral Walker recently returned from Knrope , where he. conferred with many prom inent hlmctalllsts , amoiu ; them the be Trench minister of jlnancc , so that he spolco from personal knowledge. Rut evidently tlio slKneiv ? of the mes- sa ij ( o Mr , Jlryan misapprehend the aim and purpose of the. free silver party. It docs not contemplate or ileslro Inter national bimetallism.

Mr. llryaii pro poses to strike down the gold standard , ' which ncccs.iarily mean. ) substitution of u sliver standard. This Is not what Knropran hmetalsta ! ) ! are seeking to bring about. They want a larger use nl silver In the world's currency , but they do not want silver monnmolalllMn , nor are they proposing to cheat anybody 01 to give debtors an opportunity to repudiate part of their honest obliga tions. The policy they urge Is radically dilTcrent from that of the free silver parly here. Hut concede , for the sake of argument , that HIP success of free silver In the I'lilted States would advance the cause nl International bimetallism. The ques tion is. Can the 1'nlted States afford to suffer the consequences certainly in volved In tr.vlng the experimentV When Mr , Itryan himself admits that It would produce financial convulsion and every body who has an Intelligent opinion in the matter agrees with him , It Is neces- f.ary ! to consider whether the probable resulls of an effort by this country alone to raise aiul maintain the silver of the world at parity with gold wotdd not ' be altogether too costly and calam itous to warrant the experiment. Why r.hould the American people make the that would be Involved In finan cial j disorder , Industrial paralysis and greatly inteiisllled depression for a mere theory which has not the support of a single sound reason or substantial fact ? The republican party is In favor of international bimetallism , but It does not believe It can be brought about by llrst placing this country on a silver basis and In llnanclal alllllatlon with China , India and Mexico. SUUXI ) J/OJVWI * . The great lumber interest of the conn- try ( ) is practically unanimous for sound money ( j and protection. It has suffered severely from the Wilson tariff and the distrust due to the free silver agitation. Tin * leading organ of this interest , the Missislppi Valley Lumberman , prints In Its last issue a statement made to the employes of the T. H. Scott Lumber ; company ' of Merrill , Wis. , which closed down a couple of weeks ago , explain- In- ' , ' the necessity for this course. Tlio manager of thu company said that dis trust and lack of confidence had caused business ! l to dwindle as nearly as possible - siblo to nothing. With such an effect produced by the Chicago platform , he said , "picture the results which would necessarily follow the election of can didates 1 nominated to stand upon it. " lie referred to the largely Increased im portation of lumber and logs from Can ada under the present tariff and said : "Wo firmly believe that thu success of lliu free silver ticket would mean a continuation for a long period , in a seriously aggravated form , of the sort of times we tire now experiencing. There would follow a disturbance of values , wrecking of fortunes , shrinkage - ago of savings , closing of factories and widespread disaster. On the other hand , the triumph of sound money would mean restoration of confidence , a sound financial system , the maintenance of our high position ninong civilized na tions and a speedy return of prosperity. " This reflects the. feeling generally of those In the lumber trade of the Mis- sissippi valley. In the valley.'p ' when Hon. W. IJourke Cock ran spoke in that city the men connected with the lumber industry were conspicuous. Thirty-seven hundred of them were in line and their feeling was expressed in some of the mottoes , as , for example : "Our labor is money and we want the best. " "Wo want an honest dollar and a chance to earn it. " "Wo want to bo paid 300 cents on ( lie dollar , no-cent dollars don't go. " In the states where the lumber Industry Is large , as Min- nesota , Wisconsin and Michigan , It will bo a potent factor In the cause of .sound money and protection. The Hallway Men's Sound Money club of Cri'ston , la. , has been accused by a silver paper of having been or ganized at the dictation of railway olllclals. This charge was made In Omaha respecting a similar organiza tion. It was denied by the members quite as explicitly as did the Iowa club when . it passed the following resolution : "Wo have freely and spontaneously formed this club because wo know that fitl the debasement of the coinage can only result In lessening the amount of wages we earn and Increase the cost of the things wo buy. Wo voluntarily array ourselves ) l upon the sldo of sound money In order to- keep unimpaired the value of the earnings of the road that employs us and secure the highest standard of money with the greatest purchasing power possible for ourselves. Enlight ened self-interest and a sincere desire to eo-operato witli the shareholders of the road in preventing a practical confisca tion of their property arc the motives which have Induced us to combine , and any other motive attributed to ns but these an ; either the ontcropplngs of ignorance , mendacity or malice , " a At tile opening of the State university the chancellor sought to impress upon the Indents the fact that as a public Institution the university is .strictly nonpartisan - partisan , Vet neither the students nor ' tlie university authorities can close their yes to the inevitable shrinkage in re sources which free , coinage would mean for them.

Should I ho program for a depreciated currency bo carried out , the educa a tional Institi tlons of the state would bound to bo among the heaviest sufferers. Bryan Is Just beginning to discover that in paving the way for himself to bolt the party at the tlmo he expected the sound money democrats to have or control of the Chicago convention , lie also paved thu way for und Invited t ] > sound money democrats to bolt Hie c Chicago platform nnd the Chicago * ! ticket.

When Mr. Ilryan was in this state ho missed the opportunity of his life. Though he was copiously eloquent about the "Crime of ' 73 , " ho had .absolutely nothing to say about the "Crime of 1CC2 , " which was per petrated by no less a personage than Potcr Stuyvcsant , governor of the Dutch province of New Netherlands , now known as Now York , The story Is told In detail by Wash ington Irving , In his "History of New York , " and It Is so germane to the financial Ixsuc of the present campaign that , owing to the failure of Mr. IJryan to refer to It , wo give a brief synopsis of It. When Wllhelmus Klcft , better known as William the Testy , was governor of Now Netherlands , ho determined to increase the primary money of the province by issuing strings of beads , clamshells and wampum articles recognized as money by the Indians without the aid or consent of any other nation. For William to determine was to In do ; and so the new money at once began to circulate. At first everybody was happy. Money became plentiful. Yankee traders poured Into the province buying everything the worthy Dutchmen hud to sell , and payIng - to Ing them In return the highest prices In the governor's bcqd money. It was noticed , however - over , that when B Dutchman tried to pay Yankee In the same coin for his tinware or wooden boWW'lho'case was altered ; nothing would do but Dutch guilders , or other gen erally recoufilzed coins , Indeed , the Dutch men foumufilnt nobody outside the province would tnkothelr _ money. Hut that didn't trouble them.- - What did they care for abroad ? Were they not great enough to maintain their own financial system ? Hut sooivlbo Yankees , with that preter natural "cuteliess" for which they have al ways beentielcljrated , began to play a lowdown - down trick , on the worthy burghers , They deluged tli'i rro'vlnco with a species of In ferior waifpHUn money , made out of the commonest/ oyster shells , Dy this means they soon [ supceeded In getting possession an of nearly ill 'into ' gold , silver and products Is of the pnf'loVo. Evidently something wan wrong , tluuJKlillt was not Just clear what It was. It did J jlot seem possible that Wil liam's flnaii/l/il system could bit at fault , for for It had rofeulted In an enormous Increase In the circulating medium of the province. Kvorybody had heaps of money , and there fore everybody ought to have been contented. 13ut , as a matter of fact , the ownership of long string of beads , or a heap of oyster to shells , even tbcugh matlo valuable by the stamp of the government , failed to make the citizens happy when they thought of the Yankees feasting on their hams und c-eoses. Peter Stuyvcsant succeeded Wllll&m the U Testy nn governor , and , as he had an old- The fashioned prejudice In favor of specie as not money , bn demonetized wampum , In 1CG2 thereabouts , thus striking down the pee ple's money and contracting the volume of currency , Juit as Mr , Ilryan says the gold- bugs are doing now. So when the Yankee that traders came back to get more hams and cheeses In exchange for Connecticut clam shells , they found-to their disgust , that the clumghclls wouldn't go any longer , They It were obliged tg pay honest money for every thing they purchased.

Wo wonder whether this sentl- \ mcnt Is contained in any of the books of reference In the library at Wolfcrt's Hoost. Perhaps Hon. John Boyd Thacher of Albany , flatters himself that history will regard his J performance , Including the deglutition of his noble declaration for honest money at Sara- _ toga less than three months ago as a sacri fice of self In order to save the democracy of the Empire state. The way to preserve the state organization of the democracy for future usefulness was to use the axe and not the towllne. As It Is , thanks to stu pidity , cowardice and treachery combined , the boat is dragged on in the wake of the doomed ship , and in the stern sits a some- what ridiculous figure , with impotent hands upon the tiller. rUA'CTITIll.VC IIKY.VX'S FAKES. .S < rliij- of Sliver KiilHcliooilM About JlUVII SlKMVIl ! ! ] > . l > a Mollies IlCRlster. A few days ago a man came all the way from New York to study the political situ ation In Town. He called himself the World's "special commissioner. " Ho might better havi been styled the world's special liar. He claims to have traveled up and down the- slate , but that seems impossible , $ for even n fool would have learned more of the situation In Iowa by traveling up and down It. Hti quoted members of the repub lican state committco , but sliov.'ed that he was unable to quote correctly. All this mass of stuff the World has palmed off on the east under startling headlines which announce nounce- that "Iowa Is n tlo , " that there has been "a startling growth of silver sentiment In Iowa , " that " 30,000 republicans holt" and that "the chairman of the. republican com mittee admits the atntc In danger , " and The Register wants to brand all the stuff sent by this "special commissioner" to Now York as lies and misrepresentations. Iowa Is not a tie. there has not been a startling growth of silver sentiment In this state , nor hnvo 30,000 republicans bolted , nor has Is the chairman of the republican atato cen tral committee admitted that the state la In danger. On the contrary Iowa Is repub lican by from f < 0,000 to 100,000 , nnd maybe more ; the silver sentiment has been wan ing even among populists ; the number of re of publicans who bolted Is nearer 300 than 30,000 and the chairman of the republican stuto committee haa all the tlmo claimed a Iowa by at least 50,000 , But let us look at some of the statements In detail , $ "Mr. Treynor , the secretary of the repub 30 lican committee , told mo today that the reports from all parts of the state already In his hands indicated that there were nt least 30,000 republicans classed ns doubtful , but actually leaning toward free silver. " "Mr. Ciimmlngs , tlio republican national commltteemnn of Iowa , confirmed this state ment an hour later. " What Mr. Troynor told the "special com missioner" was nothing of the kind. Ho for told him that the committee estimated that 30,000 republicans In the state , as Indicated by their polls , had leaned to silver , but on are republicans nevertheless. Ho docs not a bellovo , and never did believe , that one in ECO fifty of those would vote for Mr. Ilryan and fact republicans who will actually vote for Mr. Ilryan have been hard to find , Mr. Trcynor'a statement ! and views were gar but bled by the "special commissioner.

This is a proposition which touches the bread ' and butter ot the majority of nil the American people , for the wage-earning class Is by far the larger portion of our total population. Not less than four fam ilies out of every five in this country are supported by weekly salaries or dally wages. or by wages paid at flxcd rates for piece work , so that CO.000,000 of our people , using round figures , stand today iu the shadow a tremendous loss , which will surely fall upon them if the threat of frep sliver coinage Is carried out. The payments to the wage earners of the United States are reasonably estimated by expeits to bo fully $4,000,000,000 a year. Four thousand mil lions a year are owing to labor oir the gold standard. Wage earners are a "credit class" to that extent. The basis of this estimate Is the fact that there are 20.000- 000 wage workers In this country , and nt average of ? 200 a year each the grand total ot their annual earnings Is S1.000- 000,000. The last census shows that the total val uation of the country , Including Its prop erty nnd wealth of nil hinds was $24,000- 000,000 In 1800. The mortgage debt of the country was at the same time In the neigh borhood of J2,500,000,000. The amount of mortgage debts annually paid off does not oxcced J500.000.000. Therefore It plainly ap pears that eight times as large an amount paid every year for wages In iho United States as is annually paid In the cancella tion of mortgage Indebtedness. Assume then , with Mr. Drynn , that free silver coin- would make it easier to pay debts , what will that do to Ibo 20,000,000 wage earners the country If the mortgage debtors can only bo relieved at the expense of a loss to them of at least ono-thlrd and very likely larger slice of their present wagea ? The wage roll of the country , aggregating $4,000,000.000 a year , Is to bo scaled down per cent , possibly 40 per cent. In order that people who are in debt may get a shave of the Enmo extent on an minimi mortgage payment of less than $500.000,000. That Is the nrynn party's avowed purpose. "Tho greatest good to the greatest num ber" has long been held lo bo a sound principle of popular government. Why , then , should 20,000,000 wage earners be asked to accept $1,333,000,000 less per year their labor. In order thut not moro than ono-twentloth of their number of mortgage debtors shall be enabled to get a dlHcuunt their Just debts of Icsa than $167,000,000 year ? If the wage earners can clearly that this Is what Is proposed to he done by the Uryan party they will never consent to I * . lint It Is necessary not merely to assert to prove to our working people thnt silver coinage , If It cornea , will re thefcwnges by nt least one-third. They only to read the speeches of Mr. Hrynn , . Stewart , Mr. Jones , Mr. Teller , or Mr. Daniel to find for themselves that one thing ; is confidently predicted by every free silver advocate that thu prices of all crops and staple products , except gold , will be inlscil Immediately the opening of our mints to the unlim coinage of tbo whlto metal. Let us , for I lie Hake of discussion , that this lirophocy would prove true that food , cloth , , fuel , housu rentals and all necessaries llfo would advance In cost from 30 to per cent. .Mr. Ilryan says that they i advance co per cent. That Is , he practically said so In Madleon Square Onr- , when ho declared his belief that frco colnago would bring the market price uf all over thu world to double Itu present figure , and that all other prices ripe with It and In the uamo measure. Nowhere has he said , und no free silver champion ties anywhere said , that wages , Is the prlco of labor , will advance In degree. The martgaged farmer would not see any tn the proposed repudiation of 20 cent of his honest debt If Mr. Ilryan were tissuro him that hand in hand with It , he have to pay 30 per rent more for Ills labor and 30 per rent more for his machinery and all his family supplies. the fraudulent promise held out to the fanner Is that ho Is lo he able to collect or 40 per cent mor for all ho sells , set or 40 per cent taken off all that hu owes , yet buy all -jat ho has to buy at the prices , labor included , that ho pay * . The greatest cheat that they are try- to put on all our laborers and wage mrncrx U Ui3t they are somehow to be benefited by scaling down mortgage debts they do not owe , and by railing the of crops and products which are not lo sell ; and are to Improve their con by buying all tlio prime necessities of at retail stores at an advance of 30 or per cent on their present prices. It not plain that If wage earners could asuured that their wages would rise CO cent aloug with the rise iu the price of ullvcr ami of conernl product * , they * f would still bo no 'jpttcr off than they r j loilaj.
