This was due to the fact that Admiral Sampson sent; to the president a message in which he said that "the fleet under my command" offered the American nation the Santiago victory as a Fourth of July present. But as soon as the newspaper reports and the statements of eye witnesses came in, it developed that Admiral Sampson, while theoretically in command of the Ameri can fleet, was at least twelve miles from the scene of hattle, and that it waB Admiral Schley who commanded and led the splendid fight. Immediately a systematic attack was opened upon Schley, although that great sailor did not indulge in boasting of any character. In re ply to a que...

The Commoner. $ Vol. i. No, 29. Lincoln, Nebraska, August 9, 1901. $1.00 a Year A Word to the Disappointed. In accordance with a call issued immediately after the Ohio convention, a number of demo crate met at Columbus last week and registered a protest against the action of the Ohio demo crats in refusing to endorse the Kansas City platform. A platform was adopted and a ticket headed by Dr. Reemelin of Cincinnati, was placed in the field. As the gentlemen who attended this meeting are political friends and supporters, the editor of the Commoner feels that he should submit some observations with regard to the action taken. They have ample reason to feel disappoint ed at the course pursued by the regular con vention. If it had been necessary to fight the campaign entirely on state issues, no reference would have been made to national questions. The fact that the platform devoted more space to national than to local subjeots was proof that the excuse given for a refusal to endorse the...

How, then, can a minister with a quickened conscience fail to see the error of our position? It ib surprising that any one can regard stealing from others a8 less reprehensible viewed from a moral standpoint, than being stolen from. And yet there are ministers who defend a government based upon force, merely because we adminis ter the government and use the force against others.

Since the McKinley admin istration came into power the law has been changed so that the national banker may issue $1.00 in national bank notes for every dollar in government bonds deposited.
