Successful Cooperation Dincusaed
The executive committee of the Ne
braska F. A. & I. l are anxious to
hare the members learn by trial the
benefits of co operation.
In order to stimulate thought, and
work in this lice they instructed the
secretary to issue an address on the
"various phases of, co-operation found
successful in this state." This properly
includes a history of the state and every
enterprise in it. There is nothing worthy
of mention in the world which can be
called the product of a single lndivl
dual's effort or thought. There are
many things, however, from which one
derives all the benefit. Infancy is not
more dependent upon others than is the
one who performs the simplest act of
toil. Distant toilers must dig the iron
ore, others mine the coal, and still
others fashion the plow before the far
mer can turn a furrow. Co-operation
is "acting or operating together for one
It was by the work of a large number
for one end that our public highways
were put (and are kept) In condition to
quickly transport produce to all parts of
the earth. But that end at present
seems to be to eaable a few to draw big
dividends and, not to accommodate the
general public.
Our poetofHces are one of the success
ful examples of co-operation, and show
the benefit of having the work "by the
people, for the people," benefit all the
people ae equally as possible. Imagine
the postmaster general charging all the
postage "the traffic would bear" for the
benefit of himself and a few friends.
Our school system is a partially sue
cessfui co-operation phase, and its fault
is that while each tax-payer in the
state co-operates for the purpose of hav
leg good schools, our haphazard district
system does not allow equal benefits to
all. Consevuently one district has nine
months school in a year and the next
three, and an ignorant class of neigh
bors and citizens is the result. But
probably the intention was to somewhat
limit the article to the forms of co oper
ttHUH among Vue ittlllicio ui luc dibic
and that is a small matter compared
to what "it might have been" or ought
They co-operate with nearly all other
toilers for the production of wealth, but
apt for its distribution. Consequently
.while they produce an immense amount
of wealth, they are able to retain but
very small share.
The time was when the farmer was
nearly independent. Our competitive
system by forcing each to do what thy
can do best and cheapest has forced the
grain raisers to co-operate with me
chanics to furnish improved machinery,
weavers to supply clothing, etc., etc
These toilers receive but a bare subsls
tence, by inr the largest part of all the
wealth they both create being consumed
in the exchange.
How to prevent that is now the ques
Modern politicians are not supposed
to have any of the ati rlbutes of Divinity;
but they certainly do "help those who
help themselves." We would have com
manded more respect from our law
makers if we had set ourselves to work
to right every wrong which lay in our
power. It is partially our own fault
that we are poor.
What has been done by one could be
by all.
There is one club of farmers in Kear
ney county, mostly of foreign birth,
who have a shipping club and have for
years shipped all their own cattle, hogs,
etc., and they have made it pay them
One eiife-Alliance shipped In three
cars of coal one winter and saved their
members just fifty dollars on each car
One Alliance bought Sour from the
mill by ihe ton and saved fifty cents a
sack from 'he retail price. One Alli
ance buys nearly everything in the
grocery line at wholesale; they keep
the goods in an unused chamber, and
each member takasvhat'they wish at
wholesale price. This is a store on a
small scale and has the advantage of
not paying any clerk hire, etc., etc-
xney write mat uiey are going to snip
their eggs, butter, etc., hereafter.
SfWman and Nuckolls counties have
Alliance co-operative stores owned by a
stock company and managed by a board
of directors elected by the stockholders.
They have been In lueoessful operation
for some time. I will sand a copy of
the articles of Incorporation to any
Alliance secretary who applies.

There are many things which we can
not right except by co-operation at the
ballot box. But that Is the best of
reasons why we should do all in onr
power to give immediate financial ben
efits to our members. Legislation in

Oakdale, Neb , April .10, 1894.
Editor Wealth Makers:
Here is a text which I hope you will
use for the benefit of Judge Hubbard
aDd his road and give them the scoring
they so richly deserve.,, The railroad
which the great judge has the honor to
(mis) represent was secured by charity.
He says, 'Why, If ws were to carry this
crowd (Kelly's) over the Iowa railroads
we would be compelled to carry 10,000
more idlers out of the state like them,"
(admitting having 10,000 Kelly men in
Iowa! But we guess there are ten times
that number). They would swamp the
road and they could do nothing but a
charity business. Out roads wen not
built for charity." Let us see where the
charity plea comes In. The Iowa rail
roads received as charity, as a free gift,
one-eight of all the domain of Iowa,
which means many millions of acres of
land and many thousand dollars in
charity bonds, at the rate of $16,000 per
milo. That ain't charity! oh, no! It
was a violation of the constitution of
the state, all the same, the court hold"
ing that the state could not issue bonds
for private corporations but the
counties, towns and cities could do so
Hefty reasoning that.
What constitutes a state? We think
it's the counties.
What a swell head he, Hubbard, must
be. "Ditch the train if it destroys
every man on it and hurts a lot of cars."
That is the kind of charity they the
road beggars) should have received at
the hands of Iowa settlers. It becomes
them to swamp the road and do a
charity business, a free gift of all that
wealth, and extortion in passenger and
freight charges and must appoint re
ceivers to do their business. That's
why the cannot turn Kelly's army on to
Washington. Gold at a premium. Hu
manity at a discount. Hayseed.

Editor Wealth Makers:
I am glad you changed the name of
your paper as I know that there are
lots of men that would not take the
second look at it. My time is out and
has been for some time, but like lots of
others I do not like to be without the
paper and will send money as soon as I
can and may send some more names.
It has been a good while since I sent in
a list; but we out here are nearly all of
us feeling a slight touch of that little
depressions in the financial and business
departments of this country, which we
have been rsading about.
But say; how long, oh, how long must
we must this Infernal, hellish work?
How long before we can get enough
voters to open their eyes enough to see
so they will help us to send man to con
gress to legislate in our (labor and pro
ducing class) interests instead of truck
ling to England and the bond holders
and Wall Street.
Mr. Editor, I am a stranger to you all
but I hve been cn deck a good while,
and while I used , to .be a good Republl
can and am yet, I hope, or I know, that
am a genuine Abe Lincoln Republican.
Still, from the standpoint of the party
to day, I am an anarchist, a coclallsf, or
some other dsspisable thing that ought
to be driven from the face of the earth.
We are, Mr, Editor, or once was,
supposed to be a free and Independent
people. But my Clod, is it so? Can it
be possible that we still rettln the free
and independent principles that our
forefathers fought, bled and died for.
and bequeathed to us as the greatest
and most sacred bit stings ever bestowed
on posterity? I say, can It be possible,
that we as a people itltl retain a spark
of those principles?
I tell you, Mr, r'.dttor, it looks to me
as if the answer must be, No, For have
we not time after time for the l&tt thirty
years been tending men to our Congress
who have Invariably and systematically
done the bidding of lotfUod and tie
money lords and fhylecks of this coun
try? I tell you, sir. It looks like the
free and Independent part was mighty
sr petered out of any aatioa or conn
try, whore thsy will allow any other
salUn to dictate what ihey shall or
hall not do, especially concerning their
most vital Interna, as has been the
case with our law makers and Keg land

ized the Alliance at Colon, Saunders
county, with twenty-three members,
and established the "Aid degree." This
makes the Alliances and three degrees
for Saunders county the past month
Brother Teachman of Caresco will carry
forward the work in the county,
Speaker Gaflin and wife and Brother C.
M. Lemar and wife were a along the
number at Colon. Brother Lemar
one of the executive board of the State
Alliance. Saunders county is the baa
ner Alliaace and People's party county
of the river counties of the state, and
to their success, as such, is largely to be
attributed the fact of their co-operative
work. Saunders county has In success
ful operation six fire and lightning mu
tuai insurance societies, which are
saving annually to the farmers fully
They have also seven co-operative
shipping firms in the county, Speaker
Gaffln being in charge of the one at
Colon. He Informs me that as manager
of the co-operative society he has
corn for the month of April kept the
price of corn at least two cents per
bushel higher than it would have been
if their co-operative society were not in
existence. The farmers shipping
through this society receiving at least
two cents per bushel more than they
otherwise would haye received; and in
addition to this extra two cents per
bushel, he cleared above all expenses
for the month of April 1323, which will
be divided pro rata among the stock
holders. The other shipping co-operative
firms lam Informed, did equally
well. Sunders county snd Furnas
county are waking up to the benefits of
co-operation. Other lines will be taken
up soon. The county treasurer, Brother
Olson, has complied with the law in re
gard to loaning the county funds. He
Informed me he had out 165,000, and In
a few days would have 83,000 more,
making $70,000 that the county gets
four per cent Interest on. If the aver
age dally balances keep up to that
amount the county will receive $2,500
to $2,800 as Interest on the funds, sav
lng the people that much in the line of
taxation to pay running expenses.
In many counties of the state where
Republican and Demccratlc county
treasurers holds the cash box, the law
is not complied with, and those countlc s
are losing the interest on their money
and the swag paid these officials by the
banks for the county funds deposited
with them goes into the county tress
urer's pocket and as much as is neces
sary is used to elect himself to office
again. Great Is the Rep-o-Demo o sys
tern. But its all on account of the tariff,
you know. The New Era of Wahoo
has now at the helm a live and earnest
set of Pops who, are -waking things up
lively. Having the largest circulate n
in the county they are doing splendid
work. Every reformer in Saunders
county should rally ta their support.
The meetings of Brother Wardall and
Lmyself were well attended In that
county and much interest awakened by
Brother Wardall In co-operative work,
Saunders county will not be found want
ing or wait ng when called upon for
her share of ammunation for the com
ing battle. . W, F. WliGHT,

The Sultan Buys a Binder.
, His Most Gracious Majesty, the Sultan
Abdul Hamid Khan Gazl II., Sultan of
the Ottoman Empire, successor to Mo
hammed the Prophet, and ruler of the
unspeakable Turk, has bought a Deer
ing twine binder for ubsoh his Imperial
domain. This purchase was tho direct
result of the World's Fair; and a direct
result of this purchase may be the uni
versal adoption of Deering binders in
every wheat field in the vast Ottoman
Empire. A machine that is good
enough for the Sultan, will,, of course,
be the one used by every faithful sub
ject. Hon. A. G. Asdlkian, the Sultan's
agricultural commissioner at the Fair
as a member of the famous harvest ex
oursion to North Dakota, watched
thousand acres of wheat on the Elk
Valley farm at Larimore, melt away in
a single day before a eavaloade of forty
three Deering binders. He was deeply
Impressed, and after examining all
other makes of machines, reported to
Sultan that the Deering binder was the
best made in America. His August
Majesty thereupon signified that it was
hia wish to possess one of these
machines, and the wires were straight
way laden with messages to that effect
As no ordinary adornment was deemed
suitable for the Royal gaz, the Deer
lng people at once prepared a binder
embelished with gilt and silver, gor
geous in hand-painted design, and In
scribed on its deck -cover with a suit
able dedication to his Imperial Majesty.
No correspondence can reach the eyes
of his August Majesty, the Sultan, that

shipment by means of the following
letter which religiously complied with
all of the formalities just spoken of.

There is a movement on foot to send
speaker from Nebraska to Oregon.
be Oregon election takes place in June

The money could not be expended to
better advantage, for vlo'ory In Oregon
