Editor Wealth Makers:
la reply to your request of the 22nd,

men: for Governor, Mr, Joe Edgertonof

Ukainakd, Neb., March 28, 1894.
Editor Wealth Makers:
Enclosed find $1.00 to pay my sub
scription another year for your paper,
which I esteem very highly.
In regard to fusion, never. Stay in
the middle of the road. The old parties
are fastening the ropes around their
own neoks. -Let them alone.
In regard to our standard bearer?, I
would suggest Mayor Weir lot first
place, and J. N. Gaffln for second.
Yours for the rights of humanity,
S. M. Darnell.
Want Deaver for U. 8. Senator.
Omaha, Neb., March 20, 1894.
Editor Wealth Makers:
I have read your editorial under tbe
heading, "Let us Exchange Views," and
believe you have hit upon a good plau
and oae which will enable the rank and
tilo of our party to bring forward good
unci available candidates.
In this connection I wish to suggest
the tame of our energetic state chair
man, D. Clem Deaver, as a fitting suc
cessor to the goldbug, Cleveland dor
ing Senator, C. F. Maadereon. Mr.
Deaver Is a strong man and one who
would reflect credit upon Nebraska, and
with our gallent Senator Allen would
make a team of which Nebraska could
well be proud. Respectfully,
E. M. Shaw.

Editor Wealth Makers:
I am glad you have opened your col
umns to us for a discussion of available
candidates on tho next Populist ticket
to be voted for in November. In my
judgment we should give the preference
when we may choose to new men, or
men who have not several time been
before the people as candidates for
otlicts. We should he careful to choose
men of unblemished character, men
whose private life will bear tho turning
on of a political search-light. We must
hv candidates unquestionably quali
fied (or the positions we wish them to
till. We must have men who have not
been leaders of factions In the past,
snen who can command the hearty si'p
loi I of all elements la the party. We
must hare men who have subscribed
heartily and enthusiastically to our
national platform of principles.
We have plenty of such men In oui
own ranks to choose from. Permit me
to name as uiy choice two men to lead
our ticket. Fur Governor, Prof. Win,
A. Joa of Adtmi county. For Lieut,

View of a Clay County Populist
Fairfield, Neb., Mar. 27, 1894.
Editor Wealth Makers:
Our state officers for the next two
years must be Populists of the best
breed, without any fusion or foolishness
Men who will work for the best interest
of the people when elected. We need
no change in two of our Congressmen,
Kem and McKeighan, unless it be on
account of ill health. But as to Meikle-
john, we want no cuckoos for Nebraska.
Mercer and Ilalner stands at tbe pie
counter too much of their time praying
for some crumbs to fall on them.
Nebraska wants more Allen men, in
Washington and must have a House and
Senate that will put aaotherthere with
out fail. Bryan is too much like a young
hickery sprout; ho wants to bend to fit
every party and fits nobody; so unless he
can fit our party we had better let the
Democrats elect him if they can. Aifor
Clay county we are all right, and will
make the fur fly this fall.
Yours for success,
J. W. McReynolds.
Mr. Hwlgart's Choice of Men.
Lincoln, Neb., March 31, '4,
Editor Wealth Makers:
In response to your request to name
some men for candidates this lall I will
say that I am a Peter Cooper, middle
of the road Populist in principle, and
unalterably opposed to fusion of any
sort. If the scramble for office is all
the political sense some of our pro
fessed Populists have, the sooner we cut
loose from them the better. It will hi
for the good of our common country.
While it is necessary to elect officers to
offices who have the Omaha platform
indellibly stamped in their whole make
up, we want to know that each can'
didate is a "middle of the road man."
When we talk of fusion with Demo
crats or Republicans we are laying
aside our grand and glorious God-given
principles as enunciated by the plat
form. I will name men for at least a part of
the state offices, and if the party should
nominate these men I am sure we will
not have to blush when our ticket is
referred to by any member of cither
wing of the Democratio-Republloan
corporatloa-rldden Morton and Thurs
ton combination. M choice Is:
For Governor, Senator W. F. Dale or
Speaker J.N. Gffini Lieut. Governor,
Senator H. O, Stewart, J, H. Powers or
A, J. Gustln; Treasurer, J. H. Kdmli
tin; Attorney General, J. M. Reagan;
Secretary of State, Mart Howe. For
U. 8. Senator I would luggent Prof.
Wm. A. Jones.

Editor Wealth Makers:
la your editorial Inviting opinions as
to the beat ansa for the official positions
to be filled neit November, you well
say that next to "a good honost pla'
form," as a condltloa of success, Is "inert
as standard bearers who Incarnate our
principle and are qualified t i enact
and execute the laws we eatl fur," la
ur first gubernatorial rarapelge, with
aa tBthualaun at hot a it was non
Uaeous, we nominated John Powers, a
suaa whuwaaid ! the very embodi
ment of the pi Incluloa we prwfes.
The rvs dt was that the raak aed file
of W party euUreJ Into that cam
lfc'tt with an lonett eothualaatn
which carried everything Mure
P.; aad w i'klift thai we !ate4
fclm governor, la tur aeit raotpatga,
through the questionable tactics of
some of our leaders, John Powers was
was turnsti down and we nominated a
man who did not thoroughly "lacaraate
our principles," but who, wo were told,
would catch outside votes. The result
was that the ardor of soma of the truest
Independents of the state was cooled,
many of our men refused to vote for
him and we lost the election.
I hope in the coming campaign we
will not nominate any man who Is un
der the least suspicion of being shaky
on any plank of tbe Omaha platform, or
whose affiliation with us oan be traced
to any other cause than a hearty, un
equivocal belief In our principles.
In response to yonr Invitation I will
name a man for Governor who not only
"incarnates our principles" In himself,
but who by his untiring energy, unsel
fish devotion, and great executive abili
ty did more to "incarnate those princi
ples" In a new and powerful political
party than any hundred men of this
state- a man who ha Uhmvil Inner nndU)U"uu m fr"w J":' ' "rac

of our party. R. W. Inskss
Hon. Harney Johnston's Good Advice
Howe, Neb., March 24, 1894.
Editor Wealth Makeiis:
I notice in your Issue of 22 Inst, an ln
vitatlon for men to send in for publlca-
tlon the names of their preference for
tbe various state offices. I have no
names in my mind now to send in, but
desire to say thai we can't afford to
make any mistakes, but must have an
al solutcly clean ticket from top to bot
tom, and especially for governor; for as
goes governor, so goes the whole ticket.
Ho must bo a level-headed man who
will make no bad breaks of any kind
a man whose standing and integrity,
morally and politically, will bear the
closest scrutiny clear back to his cradle
a man of such ability whether known
or unknown as will develop when he
comes before the people a man who is
a PopulUt from principle from the
heart whose whole soul Is wrapped up
In the idea that no relief can come to
the oppressed people of this nation
from any other source a man who is so
unselfish that he is willing to lay him
self and all friends on the altar.
Looking for such a man who will fill
tho bill let us not regard men or sec
tions of the state.
It may be remembered that whon we
went into cauous at Lincoln last winter
to nominate a man for U. S. senator I
asked the members ot tho legislature to
do this thing, to bury averthlng under
our feet, only to nominate tbe best man
for the plane. That nlurbt Allen was
nominated and elected and none of us
feel today that we made any mistake.
This Is the true spirit, and when we
meet In convention in this spirit, stand
ing upon Invincible principles, ami
wlU an Invincible spirit we will make
no mistakes and will be Invtnolble be
fore the people. Take time, lie care
ful and remember we have the whole
state to pick from, Let every man do
his d'tty-lhe people expect It Ced
demands It. II. J. Johmhton.

A Good Letter From a Worker.
Table Bock, Neb,, Mar. 20, 1894.
Editor Wealth Makh:
You will see by tbe heading of this
that I have changed my place of resi
dence and of course I want my paper
changed to Table Rock, as I desire to
have the benefit of your valuable paper'
to help me to fight tbe battle of the
people's cause, just the same here as I
have done la my Johnson oounty home.
The Populists met here one week ago
and arranged for an organization. I
think the Industrial Legion will b
adopted. This Is a Republican county,
but lots of Republicans are stopping and
asking themselves the question, "where
are we at?" And tbe Indications are
that tbe cause of justice to the laboring
classes will grow more rapidly in the
f jture than in tbe past.
Eooloscd find one dollar on subscrip
tion. Will try and secure you some
subscriptions, as I regard the main hone
of our cause lies In tho education of the
masses on the vital principles of self

nection with tbe ps per. You have my
most hearty approval and earnest

such stalwart and able truths that they
will meet tbe ready approval of all hon
est citizens of our common country. I
heartily approve of Urothe.' Wolfe's

enough to satisfy us on that point.
