DEMOCRATS BUY THE PARTY
BoniboniAn Preparing to Swallow Their
Partners in Fusion ,
' POPULISTS ARE TO BE ABSORBED ENTIRELY
Syndicate Formed to TaU the Flmt
Step * Toward Scouring Control of
the Thoacht-ForuilnB Machin
ery of the Combination.
LINCOLN , Nov. 19. ( Special. ) The re
volt and disintegration of the "allied forces
of reform" which was predicted early in the
year fa rapidly approaching and the demo
crats are completing plans to take the rem
nants of the show In under one canvas. I I
Th flrtt move In this direction wos-to gain ' I
control of the popocratlc newspaper * and '
( luring the whole of this year the so-called I I
, "reform press" has teen subsldlted by the ,
national democratic committee IB order that
the right kind of political matter might be
presented to the country reader * . The lead
ers of the movement have now decided that
It la Urn * to work In the open and finish
up the remnant of the populist party with
out delay. A meeting was held In tbl * city
last Bight , participated in by th * demo
cratic leaders of this state and by a repr-
entative sent her * by Governor Ston * of
Mliiourl , and arrangements were made to
f th r in th * "reform prcsi. " A company
wa * organized. It Is Mid with a capital
tock of $200,000 , to take care of the polit
ical patent ildee of the newspapers of this
tate , and It I * further Intimated that the
cheme 1 * to toe so far-reaching as to In
clude the regulation of the "reform" news-
ppers of Missouri and Kansas. The busi
ness is to b * done from a democratic stand
point and on a line with the policy of the
national committee of that party , being
virtual notice to the populists that fusion
Is out of fashion. To make sure that there
should 'be ' no hitches In the program no
populists were admitted to the meeting ere
< o membership in the now company.
Will Boom Stone ( or 1000.
While Jim Dahlman and other local lead-
are are active In the schema , It la certain
that most of the capital Is to tie furnished
by Governor Stone and by prominent demo
crats in the cant , the ultimate purpose
being to keep the country newspapers in line
and gradually boom Governor Stone for the
presidency In 1900. Just where Bryan comes
in in the deal cannot be ascertained and U
is ald that hi * presence in the city has no
connection with the matter.
It cannot be learned whether the "reform
press" butlnes * now presided over by War
wick Sauuders U to b * absorbed by the
new company , or that it IB to be squeezed
out of business. Saunders has a strong
leaning toward straight democracy and It
is known that for 4he last three months
he ha * been anxious to sell out , so It Is
quite probable that satisfactory terms will
be reached for the deliverance of the Saun
ders business to the democratic company.
In order that the protest from the popu
list * of this state may be made 03 feeble
as possible , the purchase of the state organ
of the populists hero at Lincoln U contem
plated , and onr of the Missouri emissaries
ni teen figuring on the plant for the last
fw days , representing to the local popu
list * of the Burrows-Sheldon stripe that he
Is an "Iowa grcenbacker , "
The few populist leaders who are not
' willing parties to the new scheme are mak
ing a vigorous protest. They say that the
failure of the fusion forces in this state
due to the pass-grabbing and other corrupt
practices of the men who are now holding
office * and that uch mistakes can be
avoided In the future. But In tb new turn
of affair * they M only two paths to fol-
low : One leading Into the republican party ,
and the other down the "middle of the
road" to final oblivion. The main body of
popocratlc performers Is already headed
toward the democratic circus tent.

K. R. Slzer , chairman of the republican
committee for the First district , has seni
out a congratulatory letter to the repub

Corn Is being contracted here for delivery
by January 1 for 20 cents a bushel. Many

large acreage. Wheat docs not bring the
prlco wo think It should and many are holdIng -

although wo have thought oats the most
undesirable crop , the third of the crop has
brought the owner of the land , in most
cases , nearly $2.50 per acre.
