If we have only one private monopoly in the country, and that is a benevolent one, why does the repub lican party make iuch a pretense of opposing trusts? A Politician's Congressman Each, of Wiscon Imprcsslons. sin, in a newspaper interview, says: "An impression prevails that the decision of the supreme court in the Porto Kican cases will be favorable to the gov ernment and that it will be handed down in a short time." How did this "impression" get abroad? All the history of judicial opinion in this country would give the impression that the decision would be in keeping with precedent.

The Washington correspondent of the Chicago Tribune says that there is "an increasing senti ment in favor of a declaration in regard to the international relations of Cuba." This corres pondent explains: Thoro could bo a declaration by Congress, as onted to by the Cubans in their constitution, giving the United States the exclusive right to conduct the international negotiations of Cuba, or a clause might be inserted in the Cuban constitution giving this government tho rights of a protectorate over the island in this respect. There should also bo a pledge, many Congress men assert, on tho part of tho Cubans to abide by any decision this government might make in regard to any international contentions.

The Use of Foreign Words, Clara Sterling Doolittlc, in the Chicago Rec ord, writes an interesting article relating to the lose of foreign words in English Literature as follows: The use of foreign, especially French, expressions In English writings has heon carried to such an ox .tremo in the last century that there is now a reaction against it. No good novelist of today sprinkles his jpago with French, as did the estimable writers fifty years ago. Only heroines of third-class writers c er fwaved their "mouchoirs" and made "moues," to bo nre, and thoy do it still almost as much as over, but Charlotte Bronto and Thackeray used many more (French expressions than writers of their class would se now. 1 "Jano Eyre" was published in 1847.

"IT ' -u- The Commoner -a,, i f: VOL. I. NO. 4. LINCOLN, NEBRASKA, FEBRUARY 13, 1901. $1.00 a Year. lAilliam J. Bryan. Editor and Proprietor! Militarism. During the last campaign tho democrats pointed out that republican success would en courage the party in power to increase the stand ing army. The republicans evaded the question for the most part and, when they were challenged to meet it, resorted to subterfuge and deception. They claimed that the army then in service was made necessary by the war in the Philippines and called attention to the fact that the increase ex pired by limitation in 1901. They pretended to believe that the army could be reduced before that time if the republicans won at the election and the Filipinos were assured that there would bo no change in the administration. These argu ments ought not to have misled anyone because the President, two mouths before hostilities broke out at Manila, asked for authority to raise the army to one hundred thousand. A repub...

i ffT T tyfyi generation, from century to century, although the application of the principles varies from timo to timo as now questions arise. To-day, Lincoln's memory is glorified, and yet it is significant that tho party that claims him , as its own, is now antagonizing every vital princi , plo taught by tho martyred president. That government "should express the highest spirit of justice and liborty," was Mr. Lincoln's idea; government for tho advantage of the few at 'the oxponsc of tho many, is tho republican notion of today. Lincoln believed that tho Declaration of In dependence was writton for all men and for all time, and provided tho only yafe rule for human government. To-day tho republican politician has nothing but sneors when tho Declaration of Independence is invoked as a safe guide for tho solution of present day problems. Lincoln boliovcd that a people should never "entrust to hands other than thoir own, the pres ervation and porpotuity of their own liberties and inst...

Tlio administration represented by these re publican orators has arrayed itself against Mar shall the jurist.

The fifteen thousand dollar dinner to be given by .Tames Henry Smith, of New York, who inherited fifty millions from his uncle a year ago, will not create any hostility toward the inherit ance tax. So long as heirs and legatees indulge in expensive entertainments the public generally will be able to tolerate a law which makes large estates contribute to the revenues.

The par value of a share of stock in the Stand Oil Company is $100. Since the republican vic tory of 1890, the market value of Standard Oil stock has "been steadily increasing. Soon after the election of 1890 this stock was quoted at 200 per share. In February, 1899, it sold for $439 per share; in February, 1900, it sold at $512 per share; in September of 1900 it dropped back to $500 per share. But after "confidence" was once more restored by a republican victory, this stock went u? to $000 per share. In January, 1001, it sold for $'794. On February 4, it sold at $805, and the latest quotation at hand is $815. When one reads the record of recent dividends declared by this great concern, it is not difficult to understand why the market value of the stock has increased so rapidly. The capital sto...

" WIT"1! -- vfrv-jp i rnpn BW But What is the Remedy? Tho Chicago Chronicle says that to a larger oxtont than over before tho wealth of the country is enlisted on tho side of tho republican party and it oharges that this is due, in part, to tho fact that tho republican party favors manufacturing and other enterprises, and, in part, "to some re cent doliveronccs by democrats which have been construed as hostile to public and private credit." The latter suggestion, taken in connection with previous utterances of tho paper, justifies tho inferonco that it refers to tho speeches made in defense of tho Chicago and Kansas City plat forms. Tho Chronicle itself has been inclined to construe such speeches into an attack upon wealth, whereas a distinction has always been made be tween honest accumulations and money made by illegal means. It is chief among the western ad vocates of reorganization and is persistently using its great influence to make tho democratic party more like the republica...
