If Jesus Christ were on earth today,
doing what he did when here, he would
be arrested for assault and battery by
the bankers; he would be dragged into
court by the doctors and State Health
Commissioners on the charge of healing
the sick without a license; the churches
would sit in council, assembly and Holy
See, and phut their doors against him
for preaching dangerous heresies, and
the religious and political rulers would
finally convict and kill him for anarchy,
for arraying classagtilnst class and
making the people believe that he had a
divine message of "good news" to the
poor. He would becalled first a dreamer,
then a demagogue, a deceiver, a socialist
a blasphemer, the arch enemy of vested
rights and all religions, the most danger
ous popular foe of law and order. Those
bearing his name today who do not get
into disrepute with the bankers and
other usurers, the landlords, the profit
demanding capitalists, the politicians
and the churches of the competitive sys
tem, are not real Christians.
A train dispatcher named William
Maxwell, of Galveston, Texas, after look
ing four weeks in vain for a job in Chi
cago, entered the office of the .ticket
agent of the Western Indiana railroad,
at Sixty-third street, and with a coup
ling pin overpowered and robbed him of
thirty-three dollars. The robber had
several excellent letters of recommenda
tion in his pockets and had left behind
him a family at Galveston. This is just
one of countless examples of our present
each-for-himself competitive system. J
shows the pressure that in a few days or
weeks converts honest efficient well re
commended workers into criminals.

From The Coming State
Editor Wealth Makers:
The common interest existing between
Oklahoma and Nebraska gives us a fra
ternity of feeling which should dominate
our efforts. Like Nebraska we stand on
the border of the old east, baffled to
some extent in the unfolding of our re
sources, by the same fatal power. At our
northern door is the wheat fields of
Kansas, at our southern the Texas cot
ton belt, at oureast Arkansas and to the
west the cattle ranges of the desert;
therefore, we feel the weight of the load
which our neighbors are forced to bear.
Our wheat goes down with the Kansas
crop; our cotton brings the pitiful 4 cents
with the Texan's; our beef and our pm
duce is forced down in the same scale
which has bankrupted one-half the stock
raisers and husbandmen of the great
south and west. We feel that to rid our
selves of this barrier to prosperity, Neb
raska, nor Oklahoma, nor any western
or southern state or territory should
hold back one jot of fellowship or unity
in concentrating, invigorating and vital
izing the toiling masses west of the
Fat her of Waters and south of the New
England border. We realize, though
barred from national voice, that union
is our only hope of escape; that com
bined and concerted actiou through all
the west is urgently demanded; that un
less we lay with skillful hands in the in
fancy of our state, the future will be like
that of some of our stricken sisters. We
need no further lesson in the old dog
matic way; we are convinced to our sor
row that its result is false to civilization
and its promises turn to ashen apples at
our famishing lips. No need of future
schooling in Mammon s doleful prisons,
for the crumbling fabric of our freedom
on every hand proves how futile its aim
and how poisonous to the principles of
liberty its every branch iruitage. we
must lay the rising temple nrm and
steadfast, joint by joint; we must sift the
threshing floor and cast to tne winds
that which has been proven useless.
Oklahoma extends the fraternal hand
to all the west, to all the south to all
oppressed wherever found. Our cause is
yours; your burden is ours. We go to
the same markets, yield to the same
masters, pay to the same usurers, ilie
blow that is aimed at your freedom falls
with equal force at the root of ours; and
if all men who stand in common danger
could comprehend the force of that one
suggestion, tne public press, tne nired
orators, the cross-road guzzlers, would
be astounded at the swift and sacred
union that would make the toiling
masses one indissoluble amalgam. If
every oppressed man would give one-half
the tune to honest thinking that be does
to empty listening, there would be more
patriots and less dummies in the land.
For one, I have not lost faith in the
sense and soundness of the people; I be
lieve there are more brains below the
millionaire rank than above it, tenfold
over. All we lack is the burnishing
gleam of self-reliance and the splendor
of unity to give motive power and force
to those heads below; they are invincible
They need no leaders; they are kingly
leaders, if that false dream, that wealth
makesmight, were torn from before
their eyes. The wand of fntellect must
strike away that thrall.

Boyd County Heard From.
Alfohd, Boyd Co., Neb., June 17.
Editor Wealth Makers.
I read with interest the letter as to
whether or not we shall join a new silver
party. In lioyd county we intend to in
vite all silver men (in our calls) to attend
our caucuses and convention without at
tempting to fuse with any party. If a
call is made for us to send delegates to a
state silver party convention to name a
ticket for judge of the supreme court and
regents, I do not think we Populists will
send a delegate. Tho silver Democrats
and Republicans may, perhaps; we can
not help that. I fear that pucIi a ticket
will give the Republicmis the election this
year b,v drawing some men away from
us. I expect the Republicans to work to
get such a ticket in the field. Of course
the silver men will say that state tickets
are npcesstiry this year iu order to have
an organization and a good start for the
presidential year. If our men all hold
fast to the party and don't go wild after
silver, we may win by a slight vote here
in Nebraska. How it will be in other
states I do not know. I expect we shull
see a struggle this year between the Pop
ulist party and the silver party as to
which is strongest. I donot feel likegiv
iug up the Populist party and the Omaha
platform ; I do not think it necessary nor
wise. The Republicans and Democrats
who want silver can join us and work
with us until it triumphs, and then drop
out, and we can go on without them.
They need not fear that while they are
helping silver to win they will cause the
rest of the Omaha platform, now obnox
ious to them, to win also. A party often
fails to enforce all its platform when
there is more unanimity than there will
be in this case; and here where a large
element would be hostile to much of it
the thing will be impossible at the first.
As proof of this, witness the way in which
the protection democrats of theeasthave
always defeated free trade and even low
tariff in the democratic party. Silver
men who might join us and then desert
after silver was triumphant would not be
branded as traitors to our party, because
they did not join because they accepted
all our platform, but because it came
nearer to their idea of right than any
other, and so it was their duty to work
for it and its candidates. Many a man
who went into the Republican pnrty in
'56 and '60 was in favor of nothing more
than the "non-extension of slave terri
tory." And yet as some of those men
were won over to the rest of the Republi
can platform before they left their trial
party, and so remained with it, so it
would be unwise for Populists to aban
don their platform for a single plank
party. No, Mr. Editor, I say that the
ground we have won must be held man
fully and firmly. They can come to us,
but we can not go to them. Yours, etc.

Now that splendid crops in Nebraska
are almost assured beyond a doubt, the
publishers of The Nebraska Fanner, Lin
colu, Neb., have decided to commemorate
this important event, which iudicates
good times once more, by publishing a
large secial edition of their journal
August 1st, devoted to ensilage and fod
der. This issue will be used extensively
in their subscription campaign at the
State and County Fairs and will afford
advertisers an excellent medium through
which any article of merit may be
brought before the best people of Ne
braska and adjoining territory. All who
are contemplating placing any advertis
ing should begin at once, or with this
special isHue, and all orders with copy
for advertisements should reach their
office on or before July 25, 1805. For
advertising rates see first column, second
page of Nebraska, Farmer, or for further
particulars write the publishers. The
Nebraska Farmer special alfulfa edition,
April 4, '95, was most favorably com
'men ted on by the agricultural press of
the country and highly appreciated by
those interested in and familiar with this
most popular and valuable forage plant,
oud it is the intention of the publishers
to make the issue of August let, if pos
sible, eveu more valuable than the alfalfa
special. Copies of either edition may be
had, postpaid, to any address, at five
