The Commoner. . -"- WILLIAil J. BRYAN, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR. Vol. 2. No. 17. Lincoln, Nebraska, May 16, 1902. t Whole No. 60. PLENTY OF PRESI DENTIAL TIMBER The editor of The Commoner is sometimes asked why he does not suggest some suitable can didate for president instead of pointing out objec tions to candidates named by the reorganizers. First, because he has no desire to pick out candi dates "or to influence the choice of the party as between men who believe in democratic principles and can be trusted to carry them out; second, be cause between those who can be trusted the ques tion of availability ought to bo considered, and events largely determine availability. The con vention is entitled to all the light it can get on this subject and it Is nearly two years before the delegates will be chosen. There is no dearth of competent and deserving men. One hundred names could be suggested of men qualified by ex perience and party service for the high office of president. While each ...

The Commoner. May 16, 190a ORDER NO. 100--SUPPRESSED PARAGRAPHS. The republican papers are very busy these days calling attention to the fatuous order No. 100, Issued April 24, 1863. Thoy point out that this order was approved by Abraham Lincoln and, by publishing certain extracts, they seek to justify the cruel practices in the Philippines. The extracts fr$m order No. 100 which these republican papers reproduce put the best possible face on the situation from the re'publican stand point. These, extracts relate, however, to certain general rules. There are, in this same order, sev eral explicit rules relating directly to the practices in the Philippines, which rules the republican or gans take great care not to reproduce. It will be interesting to read some of- these suppressed paragraphs. Paragraph 4 of section t provides: Martial law is simply military authority exercised in accordance with the laws and usages of war. Military oppression is not mar tial law; it isTHE ABUSE OF THE ...

How does it hap- "Deciines' pen that Rathbone has "de a Pardon. clined" a pardon? Is Senator Hanna authorized to tender par dons under this administration? Or has Rathbone been offered a pardon in a private way?

No ono know just when or how the hostilities botwoon the "North aiders" and the "South Sidors" had begun. But through long years it had been accopted as a fact that thoro should bo no social or buslnoss communi cations between tho people who lived on tho south side of tho main street of Four Cornors and thoso who lived on the nor.th Bido of tho aforesaid street. Incidentally it might bo remarked that Four COrnors boasted of but ono street, which ran oast and west, which was due to tho fact that it "was im possible to run anything other than a brldlo path north and south becauso of the steep hills.

The Commoner. May 16,190a Use For Ex-Prsldcnts. "What to do with our ex-presidents has been a problem demanding tho most serious consideration, but Grover Cleveland has suggested, without in tending it, a solution of the dilemma. Mr. Cleveland has written an article on duck hunting. It is shorter than one of his former annual messages to congress and longer than one of his pension vetoes, but the writer 'has be stowed upqn it the same painstaking care which characterized his state pa pers. Every possible point in duck hunting he has touched upon, shed ding the serene luster of his accumu lated wisdom and lifelong experience upon the topic, until it shines with such brilliance that there is no longer any dark side to ducking, not even that sort of "ducking" which embraces tho upsetting of the shiff. The ex-president, with superb scorn, excoriates the unsportsmanlike duck hunters who duck for revenue only; calls them mere assassins of tho -waddling innocent; and he coins such phrases ...

The Commoner ' WILLIAfl J. BRYAN, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR. .' Vol. 2. No. Lincoln, Nebraska, May 23, 1902. Whole No. 70. Mothers Have Earned a Rest. As summer approaches preparation should be made for a summer vacation. It is a matter of re gret that so many are not able to take such a vaca tion, and a matter of still deeper regret that the vacation, when taken, often goes to the member of the family who least needs it, while those who have best earned it, have no relief from the daily routine of life. As a rule, the wife needs a vacation more than the husband, for her life is more monotonous and is less relieved by social intercourse. The wife who does her own work, in whole or in part, finds work to occupy her time from the rising hour to the hour of retirement, and it is of a character that wears upon her by constant and unvarying repetition. The wife of the laborer, the country merchant, the professional man of moderate means, and even more, the wife of the farmer these need more ...
