The Commoner. pecuniary value is recognized by both the donor and the donee, and that a pass may have an in fluence upon the mind and decision of a juror or judge is understood by the railroad if not by the recipient of the pass. Corporations do not give away things of value without expect ing a return in some form, and they would not continue to give passes unless they felt that this expectation had been realized in the past. The parties to a suit are entitled to a fair and impartial trial, and a trial cannot be fair or impartial if the judge or a juror is under pecuniary obligations to one of the parties to the suit. As long as men can be influenced by "zeal born of benefits received and fdstered by the hope of favors yet to come," as. Mr. Cleve land once felicitously expressed it, they will be tempted to lean toward the side from which the benefit comes. It cannot be stated as an universal or invariable rule that a pass is a bribe, nor can it be said that it always influ ences th...

Below will ho found Mr. Bryan's comment thereon, written for tho New York Journal: It is not strange that Edwin Markham's poem entitled "Tho Man With the Hoe" created a pro found sensation. It is a sermon addressed to tho heart, and its lesson is not limited to any nation, race or clime. It voices humanity's protest against inhuman greed. There is a majestic sweep .to the argument, and some of the lines pierce like ar rows: Is this the Thing the Lord God made and gave To have dominion over sea and land; To trace tho stars and search the heavens for power; To feel the passion of Eternity?

The Commoner. rc .f- A Possible Surprise. Talc of Two Cities. The supreme court recently decided that the war tax on export bills of lading was unconstitutional. The attorney-general had pointed out to the court that such a decision would involve great embarrassment to the ad ministration. Referring to this point, Justice Brewer said: "It furnishes no reason for net recognizing that which in our judgment is the true construction of the constitutional limita tions." Some of the administration politicians would he greatly surprised and doubtless considerably embarrassed in their schemes of exploitation if the supreme court should con clude that in considering the Porto Rican case it should be guided by the constitution regard less of the personal interests of administration politicians. Rev. Dr. Parkhurst, in a re cent address, thus expressed his opinion of New York City: "If Sodom and Gomorrah were near New York -City and I had to move, I'd move to one of them in preference to living...

The Commoner Vol. i. No. 17. Lincoln, Nebraska, May 17, 1901. $1.00 a Year William J. Bryan. Editor and Proprietor. Criminal Speculation. If a crime is defined as an act the doing of which is prohibited by law, stock speculation cannot be considered criminal, but when the word crime is used in its broader sense to de scribe an act which offends against morality or the public welfare, it certainly includes that species of gambling upon the market which en dangers the community as well as injures the participants. A record of Wall Street's doings for the last week is an indictment against our boasted civilization. That such transactions are allowed is as much a reflection upon the intelligence of the country as it is npon the conscience of the people. It is little less than amazing that a few men should be per mitted to corner the market for their own selfish purposes, beat down the price of one stock and ::kboom the price of another stook, demoralizing business and jeopardizing the i...

NJjTjv - -tys uelcotcd as . Nebraska's representatives in the United States Senate. The advocates of the single gold standard have insisted that their financial policy was for the best interest of the people. They have de nied any favoritism towards corporationi or monopolies. And if dependence could be placed upon these declaimers, then the ad vocate of the single gold standard must be as radically opposed to corporation domination in political affairs as the advocate of bimetal lism could possibly be. But hero wo have perhaps a leading exponent, among the periodicals, of the single gold standard boast ing of the election of two corporation men as indicative of "a progress in education and exceedingly gratifying." Unquestionably the election of such men should be "a progress in education" to people who have refused to be lieve that little by little the corporations of the country are seeking to install themselves in power. Undoubtedly the election of such men is "exceedingly gratif...

I gladly avail myself of the columns of the Journal to suggest a few reasons why the op ponents of a colonial policy should make their light in support of a resolution declaring the na tion's purpose rather than against the ratification o the treaty. The conflict between the doctrine of self-government and the doctrine of. alien government supported by external force has been thrust upon the American people as a result of the war. It is so important a conflict that it cannot be avoided, and, since it deals with a question now before congress, it must be considered immediately. It Is useless to ask what effect this new issue will have upon other issues. Issues must be met as they arise; they cannot be moved about at will like pawns upon a chess board. The opponents of imperialism have an oppor tunity to choose the ground upon which the battle is to be fought. Why not oppose the ratification of the ...
