THK WEALTH MAKERS.
CLEVtcLAKnattliebiddlngof Wall street
two years egocnlled Congress together io
xtra aession to clone the mint -against
silver and saw the country. John Sher
man helped him through with bis big
contract, and proposed that ten days
after the silver coinage act should be re
pealed confidence would be restored and
, prosperity would enrich us abundantly.
The minis were closed, and bo were the
mills, just the same. .Then the trouble
waa ilivnlaNul all nM nonnnnv f1 rha
tariff, and confidence was restored again
by returning the Republicans to power.
But prosperity and confidence seem to be
waiting (or the Populists to take con
trol in '96.
. The cost of the state's defense in the
Maximum rate suit with the railroads, if
the bibs are allowed, will be f 25,017.93,
provided the case is carried through the
supreme court. The bills already aggre
gate f 13.057.20. Included in this latter
sum is Judge Dundy's fee of f 2,618.05;
the Omaha Printing company for print
ing testimony and briefs, $3,561.10; John
L. Webster for attorney's fees, $6,000.
And Webster wants 14.000 more for
repeating his arguments before the su
preme court. The courts and lawyers
care little for justice and much for the
money they can force out of the people.
School district officers will be glad to
learn that H. S. Bowers of this city has
arranged to handle school furniture and
supplies. . He has resigned from the
Board of Education in this city to en
gage in this business, and surely few
men would be better fitted for it. He
has been all his life a 6choo1 man. For
three terms he was county superinten
dent at this place, and no county in the
state ever had a ruperintendent more
generally liked. Members of school
boards will turn to him with full confi
dence iu his judgment and his integrity.
The banks are after interest. They
want that currency bill passed which will
give them the greatest amount of inter
est. And Congress asks the bankers to
come and tell them what the non-producing
money loaners want. The people
who must borrow money and use it are
not invited to recommend a bill in their
interest, take notice. Which shows that
this is not a government of the workers
by the workers and for the - workers, but
a government of the lenders, for the lend
ers and by the lenders.
The scheme now working out is to
keep issuing bonds in f 50,000,000 blocks,
and the disagreement over a currency
bill will continue till several hundred
million dollars of new bonds have been
piled on the backs of the people. Then
they will put through a bill such as suits
the bankers, to make such bonds an
additional basis for bank note circula
tion. God save the people.
Dcn reports a less number of failures
in 1894. But the opinion is very preva
lent that the whole thing, so far as work
and wages and paying debts and living
in comfort was concerned, was an all
around stupendous failure.
Judge Wilson of Ogalalla has been
appointed by Governor Holconib com
mandant of the Soldiers' Home at Grand
Island. Judge Wilson is a most worthy
one-armed veteran and it is a wise ap
pointment. All interest is usury, and, as Lord
Bacon says, its quality at any rate per
cent, even tho lowest, is to accumulate
money and by it the wealth and resour
ces of a nation and of the world into few
The hope of freedom in the future is in
this, which we believe to be true, that the
moral sense of the people is being edu
cated now to see the iniquity of inequity,
and to know as never before what is just.
The scientists have produced a tempe
rature of 402 degrees Fahrenheit, but
last Saturday at 12 below zero was cold
enough for us.
Senator Gray of Valley county, has
been very sick at the Lincoln Sanitarium,
but under the efficient care of Dr. Everett
is now convalescing and expects soon to
be able to assume his duties in the sen
ate. ONE THING AND ANOTHER.

It is possible in India for a native

A negro going through a field near

Word From Business J.etters.
Michael Premier of Trumbull, Neb.,
writes: "I like the paper very much since
you took charge ot it. Have been taking
it for about six years. Hope you will get
two new patrons for every one that you
lose, owing to scarcity of money."
Allen S. Reed of Lexington, Nebr.,
writes: "After reading a few copies of
The Wealth Makeiih I became very
anxious to Hubsci-ibe for your paper and
get a few of my neighbors to do the same
thing." Mr. Reese seuds in a club.
Prof. B. F. Pratt of Poinesville, Ohio,
writes: "Every time I receive The
Wealth Makers I thank God it is in
honest bands, and 1 believe your discus
sion'bas been wIh aud I pray God that
it may live aud prosper as the years go
Brother L. 0. Emerson of Vesta writes
of the pressure of hard times, but says:
"I feel that my mite must gotoour state
paper for another year., The very last
thing we ought to do without is the
paper which so ably champions the cause
of the common people."
Brother Spooner of Sartoria contrives
to support a family of three on a salary
of six dollars a month and out of it still
pays for The Wealth Makers. He says
'I must if possible have the paper." He
is an old preacher who was excluded from
the Radical United Brethreu church for
belonging to the Farmers Alliance. He
writes that he is in full sympathy with
our co-operation of Christians.
Brother D. M. Scoggan of Rushville,
sends f 1.20 for The Wealth Makers
and Picture Magazine and says: "Oh,
nol I will never give up The Wealth
Makers. If all the readers of The
Wealth Makers felt as I do they would
never let their time run out. I can pay
for 10 or 12 reform papers because I
never spend money for tobacco or beer.
I love this Populist movement as I love
the sunshine. All honor to the brave
Wealth Makers. I will keep on doing
all I can for you."
Spend a little spare time now soliciting
subscriptions for The Wealth Makkhs
it is good missionary work. If you can't
get a yearly subscription get a three
month's subscription get something.
Wtj have set our stakes for a list of
20,000 new subscribers for The Wealth
Makers by the next presidential election.

How Our Plan itt H-oeivi-d
The editor of The Wealtu Makers,
Lincoln. Neb., publishes in the issue of
that pti per of December 27, a financial
nystein and asks exchanges to consider
the same. The plan is all right, perfectly
feasible; ami would bring lasting pros
perit.y and be the greatest step toward
justice that caH be taken. Missouri
Read the nrlicle this week which we
take from The Wealth Makers headed
"Better than Carlisle's 1'lmi."' It wiiUei
you to thinking on the rijjht line. Pon
der over the plan. Carefully weigh every
idea in it. Consider what its adoption
would do for you and your friendn and
the country. Fix every, proposition ol
the plan in your memory, then talk it to
your neighbor. Search out if you can
tiny object ionuble feature. Formulate if
possible hii improvement.
Tins plnii would euable the farmer to
borrow money at two per cent to pay off
his morigage at eight percent. It would
enable irrigation districts to get money
to construct irrigation works at a rate
which they could nfford. It would double
the price of fnrin products, make farmers
prosperous ami with them all other
classes eimaged ill honest industry. It
would distribute: .money wherever it is
needed and could be safely secured. It
would put an end to the usury business
and turn all private capital into useful
industry. It would provide an absolutely
safe and sound currency and sufficiently
flexible to meet all demands. It would
make the people independent of Wall
street and foreign capitalists. The bank
ers and money loaners will oppose the
system of course, for the simple reason
that their interest and the interests of
the people are directly antagonistic. The
general features of the plan are simple,
and scientific, and with proper safeguards
against undue inflation of the currency
and against speculation in land, nothing
but good could come of its adoption.
Study the money question. Cedar Rapids
A more careful inspection of the plan
will show that what we propose puts a
natural limit to the volume so jhat there
would be no inflation. With the govern
ment receiving depositsof all money the
deposits would equal demands for loans
with theexception of what would becalled
for to meet an increase in population
and wealth. Editor Wealth Makers.
