HILL'S POLITML HISTORY OF THE
By Thomas E. Hill.
This is a large octavo book of 450 pages, condensed by tabulation
into a small book that it may be universally sold and circulated at a
Its purpose is to clearly present, in a manner entirely non-partisan,
the merit attaching to each party. No partiality is shown in behalf
of any political organization. Like the dictionary, it simply defines.
It gives the best-known argument in favor of each, and leaves the
reader free to choose which he will serve.
It treats upon the important live issues of the time, and is an indis
pensable work to people who would intelligently discuss the political
situation. It is a very exhaustive compendium of Political Facts,
and literally answers thousands of questions. To illustrate:
What are Democratic principles!
What does a tingle-tax advocate propose'
If all tax was placed on land, what would
be the tax on the fa mil
What would be the tax on suburban prop
erty, and how much on the acre worth two
million dollars in the center of the city f
What does a Republican believe!
Why be a Republican and favor high pro
What are the argument for and against
What do the Socialists want!
What would be the conditions It Socialistic
What do the Populists desire!
If government owned and operated the
banks, and banks never failed, and people
never hid their money and all money came
out and into active circulation, and money
was so abundant that interest became low,
and all enterprise started up and everybody
had employment, what then!
, What do the Nationalists want!
Why nationalize the railroads, the coal
mines and various Industries!
What do the eight-hour advocates pro
pose! If working certain hours yields cer
tain profit, how could working less hours
yield more profit!
How could women be benefited by voting!

Adopted by tbe Convention at Om
aha Nebraska, July 4, 1802.
Assembled noon tbe one hundred and
sixteenth anniversary of the Declaration
of Independence, the People's Party of
America, in their first national conven
tion, invoking upon tneir action ins
blessings of Almighty God, puts forth in
the name, and on behalf of the people of
the country, the following preamble and
declaration of principles:
The conditions which surround ns best
justify our co-operation; we meet in the
midst of a nation brougn. to tne verge
of moral, political and material ruin.
Corruption dominates the ballot box,
the legislatures, the Congress, and
touches even the ermine of ' the
bench. The people are demoralised;
most of the states have been compelled
to isolate the voters at the polling places
to prevent universal intimidation or
bribery. The newspapers are largely
subsidized or muzzled; public opinion
silenced; business prostrated; our homes
covered with mortgages; labor impover
ished; and the land concentrating in the
hands of the capitalists. The urban
workmen are denied the right of organi
sation for self-protection; imported pau
perised labor beats down their wages; a
hireling army, unrecognised by our law,
is established to shoot them down: and
they are rapidly degenerating into Euro
pean conditions. The fruits of the toil of
millions are boldly stolen to build up
colossal fortunes for afew, unprecedented
in the history of mankind, and the pos
sessors of these in turn despise the re
public and endanger liberty. From the
same prolific womb of governmental in
justice we breed the two great classes
tramps and millionaires.
The national power to create money
is appropriated to enrich bondholders; a
vast public debt, payable in legal tender
currency, has been funded into gold-bearing
bonds, thereby adding millions to
the burdens of the people.
Silver, which has been accepted as coin
since the dawn of history, has been de
monetized to add to the purchasing pow
er of gold, by decreasing the value of all
forms of property, as well as human la
bor, and the supply of currency is pur
posely abridged to fatten usurers, bank
rupt enterprise, and enslave industry. A
vast conspiracy against mankind has
been organized on two continent, and
it is rapidly taking possession of the
world. If not met and overthrown at
once it forebodes terrible social convul
sions, the destruction of civilization, or
tbe establishment of an absolute despot
ism. We have witnessed for more than
a quarter of a century the struggles .of
the two great political parties for power
and plunder, while grievous wrongs have
been inflicted upon tne Buttering people.
We charge that the controlling iufiuence
dominating both these parties have per
mitted the existing dreadful conditions
to develop, without serious effort to
prevent or restrain them.
Neither do they now promise us any
substantial reform. They have agreed
together to ignore, in the coming cam
paign, every issue but one. 1 hey pro
pose to drown tne outcries 01 a plundered
people with the uproar of a sham battle
over the tariff; so that capitalists, corpo
rations, national banks, rings, trusts,
watered stock, the demonetization of sil
ver, and the oppressions ef tbe usurers
may all be lost sight of. They propose
to sacrifice our homes, lives and children
on the altar of Mammon; to destroy the
multitude in order to secure corruption
funds from the millionaires. Assembled
on the anniversary of the birthday of
the qation, and filled with tbe spirit of
the grand generation of men, who estab
lished our independence, we seek to re
store the government of the Republic to
the hands of "the plain people," with
whose class it originated. We assert our
purposes to be identical with the purpose
of the national constitution: "to form a
more perfect union, establish justice, in
sure domestic tranquility, providefor the
common defense, promote the general
welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty
ourselves and our posterity."
We declare that this republic can only
endure as a free government while built
upon the love of the whole people for each
other and for tbe nation; that it cannot
be pinned together by bayonets, that the
ml war is over and that every passion
and resentment which grew out of it must
die with it; and that we must be in fact,
as we are in name, one united brother
hood. Our country finds itself confront
ed by conditions for which there is no
precedent in the history of the world.
Oar annual agricultural productions
amount to billions of dollars in value,
which must within a few weeks or months
be exchanged for billions of dollars of
commodities consumed in their produc
tion; the existing currency supply is
wholly inadequate to make this exchange.
The results are falling prices, the forma
tion of combines and rings, and the im
poverishment of theproduuingclass. We
pledge ourselves that if given power we
will labor to correct these evils by wise
and reasonable legislation, in accordance
with the terms of our platform.
We believe that the powers of govern
mentin other words, of the people
should be expanded (as in the case of the
postal service) as rapidly and as far as
the good sense of an intelligent people,
and the teachings of experience, shall
justify; to the end that oppression, in
justice and poverty shall eventually cease
in the land.
While our sympathies as a party of re
form are naturally upon tbe sideof every
proposition which will tend to make men
intelligent, virtuous and temperate, we
nevertheless regard these questions im
portant as they are as secondary to tbe
great issues now pressing for solution;
and upon which not only our individual
prosperity, but the very existence f free
institutions depends; and we ask all men
to first help us to determine whether we
are to have a republic to administer, be
fore we differ as to the conditions upon
which it is to be administered; believing
that the forces of reform this day organ
ized will never cease to move forward un
til every wrong is righted and equal pri
vileges established for all the men and
women of this country.
We declare, therefore,
UNION OF THE PEOPLE.
First, That the union of the labor
forces of tbe United States this dny con
summated, shall be permanent and per
petual; may it spirit enter into all hearts
for the salvation of the republic and tbe
uplifting of mankind.
Second, Wealth belongs to htm who
creates it; and every dollar taken from
industry, without an equivalent, is rob
bery. "If any man will not work neither
shall he eat." The interests of rural and
civic labor are the same; their enemies
Third. We believe that the time has
come whea the railroad corporations
will either own the people or tie people
most own the railroads; and should the
government enteivopon the work of own
ing and managing the railroads, wt
should favor an amendment to tbe con
stitution by which all persons engaged
In tbe government service shall be pro
tected by civil service regulations of the
most rigid character, so as to prevent
the increase of the power of the national
administration by the use of such addi
tional gonernment employes.
We damand a national currency, safe,
sound and flexible; issued by the general
government only; a full legal tender for
all debts publio and private; and that
without the use of bankingcorporations;
just equitable and efficient means of
distribution direct to the people, at a tax
not to exceed 2 per cent per annum, to
be provided as set forth in the sub-treasury
plan of the Farmers' Alliance, or
some better system; also by payments in
discharge of its obligations for public
We demand free and unlimited coinage
of silver and gold at the present legal
ration of 16 to 1.
We demand that the amount of cir
culating medium be speedily increased to
not less than $50 per capita. ,
We demand a graduated income tax.
v We believe that the money of the
country should be kept, as much as pos
sible, in the hands of the people; and
hence we demand that all state and na
tional revenues shall be limited to the
necessary expenses of the government,
economically and honestly administered.
We demand that postal savings banks
beestablished by the government for the
safe deposit of the earnings of the people
and the facilitation 01 exchange.
Transportation being a meant of ex
change and a public necessity; tbe gov
em ment should own and operate the
railroads in the interest of tbe people.
The telegraph and telephone, like the
postpffice system, being a necessity, for
the transmissionoi news, snouia oe ownea
and operated by the government in the
interests of the people. ,
The land, Including an natural re
sources of wealth, is tbe heritage of the
people, and should not be monopolized
for speculative purposes; ana alien owner
ship of land should be prohibited. All
land now held by railroads and other
corporations in excess of their actual
needs, and all lands now owned by
aliens, should be reclaimed by the gov
ernment and held for actual settlers
The following resolutions were offered
independent of the platform, and were
adopted, as expressive of tbe sentiments
of the convention:

and a fair count in all elections, aua

legal voter without federal intervention

Success In Dairying.
Every dairying-man should at all
times class himself as a student of
the industry, and, more than this, he
should not confine his studies to
books and papers, for, at the stable
and pasture, there is ever an unfold
ing lesson that, if subjected to close
crutiny, will be of value to the
farmer. John Gould says in the
American Agriculturist that success
comes quite as much from noticing
the little details of dairying, and
classifying them according to cause
and effect to secure the desired re
sults, as in complying with the more
prominent rules that are quoted as
lying at the foundation of dairy suc
cess. He says: The dairyman who
watohes closely the habits and doings
of the cows of his herd, will soon
see that success in a great measure
is the result of a fixed set of regula
tions that are to be observed and
made part and parcel of the daily
round. These things must be made
individual to some extent, so as to
fit each and every cow, for what is
adapted to one cow, is not just what
Borne other cow will require to make
her comfort complete. During the
past summer I have had this in
mind, and for years for that matter,
and I. find that so far as the details
I are concerned, that the closer we ap
proach a certain line 01 regularity,
the more marked the success.
In the first place th e stable should
never be allowed to get in disorder,
but be kept clean and tidy, aod above
all, whitewashed, and the cobwebs
Bwept down; and it will be found
that sprinkling in the gutter , each
few days with that cheapest of all
disinfectants, road dust, will give th
barn a healthy tone, that will repay
over and over for the little trouble
that it requires. While it may be
true that it does not directly
.pay to feed
pay in other
the cows grain
summer it does
ways, notably in
having the cows form the habit of
coming from the pastures, of their
own acoord, towards milking time,
and replaces the use of a dog. The
gram ration may be very small, one
pound of seconds each, daily, will be
ample, and It is best fed at night
This year I fed oat dust, a product
of the oatmeal mills, costing about
7. 50 per ton, and from it secured
very favorable results. It is also a
'good plan to have each cow have her
own tying place, and make it
borne, and see that she Is tied in no
other place. Keep the manger clean,
even if some day it does require you
to go at It with an old broom and
hot water. A cow never objects to
dining off a clean plate.
Feeding before milking is, I think,
a good plan with the summer mess,
but in winter, when feeding lull ra
tions, it is better to feed after milk
ing, so as to give the cows time to
eat, and not Interfere with the work
of the milkers, as cows need, as a
rule, more time to eat than it is pos
sible to allow, and then the cows
soon fall into the habit of voiding
when being milked, which is a great
nuisance when there are forty cows
to milk. When it is possible there
should be a tank of water in the
yard where the cows can get their
fill-before going into the stalls. It
is surprising how much water a
dairy will consume in this way, even
where the pasture is abundantly sup
plied with springs and running
brook 8, and in the winter, a galvan
ized iron trough, fastened to the in
side front of the manger, kept filled
with water, will be a paying invest
ment Utilize the btraw.
Now that hay is sure to be scarce
this winter it will undoubtedly lead
to the feeding of all the available
oat straw, and to a good share of the
chaff and the better part of the
wheat straw, says the Nebraska
Farmer. Straw can sometimes be
used in this way to good advantage.
It does not make a bad food when
helped out with the cornstalk field
and some hay and perhaps a little
bran. A dairy cow should have
something better of course. If her
butter product won't pay for the best
of feed she is no good as a dairy cow
and should be reduced to the ranks
of an ordinary cow. But there is
always on the ordinary farm quite a
per cent of young steers, cows out oi
milk and young things that would
not pay to buy hay for. ihese can
be carried along on a part ration of
straw. They would make a better
growth on good hay but the increase
in weight would not be worth what
the hay cost
There is another way by which the
straw can be used as food without
being fed to the stock at alL In the
winter time most of the food that is
eaten goes to keeping the animal
warm. This is tbe first demand
made by the animal on its stomach.
After that demand has been satisfied
the food that is left is stored in the
animal's body as fat or else it is used
to make more muscle and bone. It
is obvious then that the colder it is
the more food will be demanded to
keep up the bodily heat But if the
cold can be kept from affecting tb
animal, less food will be needed and
just that much food will be saved.
By a law of nature the living body
becomes cold much quicker in
wind than in a calm atmosphere.
This law has caused the erection oi
windbreaks and sheds for shelter.
Where a man cannot afford to buy
sufficient hay nor put up barns 01
board shed, be can at least provide
plenty of straw sheds. They will
ait for a couple of years and then
can be renewed. There can be no
possible excuse for a lack of straw
covered sheds. A few posts and
poles are all that is needed to start
with and it does not require a skilled
mechanic to construct the shed.
More straw might profitably be
used for bedding than is ordinarily
used. It would keep the horse and
cow warmer and it makes the best of
manure when mixed with tbe solid
and liquid excrement This is the
true way to compost the straw stack.
The straw rots quicker and at the
same time it checks excessive fer
mentation of the manure heap. All
of these methods pay . better than
burning the straw, which should be
the last resort to make use of the
surplus straw. All of the carbon
and nitrogen is lost by burning and
only the mineral ash remains.
Charcoal and wood ashes with nu
merous other things, sometimes
poisonous drugs, are given to grow
ing pigs to correct the acidity of the
stomach and prevent the rotting pro
cess which results from undigested
food in the stomach at a high tem
perature. This rotting is the result
of gluttony, whether found in man or
any other beast, and should be cor
rected by the thoughtful and ex
perienced feeder. Too much is not
only not good because calculated to
impair the vital functions and mili
tate against their successful work
ing, but is a waste of food as , well,
and it is in the economical use of
food that we find our profit But
should such a correction to the
acidity of the stomach be really
called for there is nothing better or
more readily available than burnt
corn cobs, or a few ears of burned
corn. Corn ground with cobs is prob
ably better after all, affording as it
does bulk as well as nutriment and
permitting the gastric juice an op
portunity to thoroughly permeate
the mass in the stomach. Colman's
