do republican of up If do In comparing tho ideas of the republican party of 1890, when 'Gene Webb assumes to have left it, and now, wheu he returns to it, tho Kearney New Era Standard naturally desires to know on what grounds he ever was a populist, and says: "When Mr. Webb left it, it had many principles that were good enough for populists. It has nono now. Then it advocated bimetallism, and now it is wedded to the single gold standard: then it boasted of having been the author of the greenbacks, now it is their destroyer; then it claimed to bo the true friend of the silver dollar, now it is pledged to its extermination; then it was labor's helper, now tho trust promoter; then it guaranteed civil rights to all, white and black; now it denies these to the Filipinos; then it policies were measured by patriotism, uow by dollars and cents; then it had a voice for struggling liberty, now it speakes against liberty with shot and shell; then it was a power for peace, now an armed force for plunder; then its platforms extrolled the teachings of its Lincolns, Garfields and Blaines, now it boasts of its ill-gotton gains; then it passed a national anti-trust law, now it refuses to enforce it."
