THE LABOR EXCHANGE.
What is Proposed to Accomplish by it
1'iitiM NfH am, Neb., April 8, 1890.
I Editor Independent: To the de
a i t
f comes greeting, the Labor Exchange.
: Years after years, ytts, a life time, you
have toiled. You have produced tons
upon tons of various kinds of provisions
besides other wealth in untold quantities.
The mysterious stream which has swept
it all away, has swept away your farm
your home, your independence and lib
erty. Such a year's production would at
least be sufficent to maintain the family
a dozen years.
Prodnctiou and exchange have per
ished for lack of circulation. The factory
. closed for lack of money to pay men,
thus unemployed men cannot purchase
your production for the same reason.
Where is the difficulty? Not a lack of
demand or necessity for food and cloth
ing. It is greater than ever before as
there are more unclothed and unfed peo
ple tban ever before
Not a lack of material of which to
make these things, for cotton and wool
are so cheap that all should be well
clothed. Not a lack of wealth. There is
over seventy billions of dollars worth in
the country. Not a lack of men to con
vert the untoid wealth, the inexbaust-
able supply of raw material into the
daintiest food aud the finest raiment.
Theu what luckest thou, O, ye children
of the earth? In a world of bounteous
plenty, yet lean hunger feeds upon every
face. lu a brilliant world of undying
beauty, yet sorrow and sadness sur
rounds every fire side. In an age of un
rivaled progress, the social goddes
is seen to retrace her steps.., In the age
of literature, of free schools and free
thought, ignorance darkens the
cities that should illuminate the entire
earth; in magnificent cities where a thou
sand church spires touch the pure blue
of heaven's arch, a ' thousand cbimers
each sabbath, mingle to call the wor
shippers to her stately alters, yet be
neath the very domes of these tem
ples are found human pens of want, mis
ery, decay and death; where virtue is
given for existence and manhood for
We have a world of natural beauty, a
world of raw material and undeveloped
resources and a world of idle and al
most empty hands, ready and anxious
to convert it into finished and useful ar
ticles. The Labor Exchange solves the prob
lem of its accomplishment without the
use of gold or silver or any kind ot legal
tender. The organization in brief is as
follows; Organize with a dozen or more
intelligent men and women, elect a presi
dent, a secretary and a manager and an
accountant, provide a depository for the
reception of goods of every description,
then let every member turn to produc
tion of whatsoever he can and deposit
the surplus at the depository and get
therefor a deposit certificate which is
redeemable in any kind of goods on hand
and is at once accentable bv business
men as if it were the same as money.

commensurate to the wealth as it comes
into existence at the time of production
and ends at its consumption, it being

Do not say it cannot be done, as it is

feed millions of hungry unemployed
men and women.

11. Lee Hamon,
The Independent asks the author of
the above well written communication to
to take into account the following facts,
and then say whether he still thinks that
the establishment of Labor Exchanges
will result as he indicates.
1. The banks have fortified them
selves against all such schemes by pos
itive letral enactments. The moment
hese labor certificates begin to act as a
medium of exchange and circulate as
money, they become subject, under the
law to a tax of ten per cent, and the
banks, you may be sure, will see to it
that the law is enforced. They broke up
a labor exchange in Kansas last year in
that way and one in South Carolina two
2. Even if exchanges could be made
in this way, it would not relieve labor of
the awful burdens it now bears. Inter
est, taxes, transportation charges and
debts would remain as they are, and
could only be discharged with legal ten
der money. These burdens would rest
just as heavy on the members of a la'bor
exchange as on the rest of the popula
tion. It is these burdens that make us
poor, that take the proceeds of 'all our
toil, and will continueto take them until
we can get control of the government,
increase the quantity of legal tender
money, and raise the price of the pro
ducts of labor until it will only take
half as much labor to pay our taxes,
onr interest and our freight charges as
it does now. Editor Independent

It will be the Free Silver Dough-faces
of the West-
The republican convention of Massa
chusetts adopted the following plank
which is substantially that of New York,
and may be called the platform of
"We are entirely opposed to the free
and unlimited coinage of silver, and to
any change in the existing gold stand
ard, except by international agreement.
Each dollar must be kept as good as
every other dollar. 1 be credit ot the
united States must be maintained at the
highest point, so that it canot be ques
tioned anywhere, either at home or
abroad. Every promise must be rigidly
kept, and every obligation redeemable in
coin must be paid in gold.
The Lincoln republicans of the west
embody their views in the following few
words, and declare an ' intention to se
cure that platform or quit:
"We demand the free coinage of silver,
16 to 1, without waiting for the consent
of any other nation.
Half way between the east and west is
McKinley with the "Ohio Idea," which
means nothing or any thing. Here it is:
"We contend for honest money, for a
currency of gold, silver and paper, with
which to measure our exchanges that
shall be as sound as the government and
as untarnished as its honor, and to that
end we favor bimetallism and demand
the use of both gold and silver as stand
ard money, either in accordance with a
ratio to be fixed by an international
agreement, if that can be obtained, or
under such restrictions and such provis
ions to be determined by legislation as
will secure the maintainance of the par
ities of values of the two metals, bo that
the purchasing and debt-paying power
of the dollar, whether of silver, gold or
paper, shall be at all times equal."

Speaking of the political position of
the association, Mr. Hake says: "The

At the lowest calculation, this means
,800,000 votes at the poles, if Mr. Mc

Editor Independent: As I see it, our
Methodist Sunday school superintendent
republican candidate for the legislature,
T. M. Wimberly will be an easily defeated
man if the populists put upagoodstrong
man against him. The conscientious re
publicans of this place do not like the
plan on which he got the nomination.
Going back to last fall he went into Pat
Dore's delegation and supported Dore
for county clerk. This was done to get
Pat's support this spring. He got it
now it is known that he tied up delega
tion for delegation with the notorious
Bud Lmdsey m the late republican con
vention and thereby received his nomi
nation. We think if the instigators of
Mr. Wimberly's reception at the Univer
sity chapel had known the way he had
done to procure his nomination they
would not have called the meeting. If
they did know it, it is a disgrace to the
school, church and town.
I want to know if a man can be de
pended upon to enact righteous legisla
tion if elected, who has procured his nom
ination by such acts. What do you
think about it honest republicans?

Special to the Nebraska Independent:
Your representative reached this little
city without a courthouse building,
about 10 a. m. today and is happy to
announce to the readers of the Indepen
dent that I found a very polite and
gentlemanly set of county officers, occu
pying olftces in various parts of the city.
The city is rather quiet in a business way,
but today being city election, there was
quite a scramble between the opposing
forces, of anti-license and license,
politics having been lost in the shuffle.
At this writing 9. p. m. it is announced
that the license party carried the election
by a majority of 45. The license party
elected the mayor and three councilmen
out of four. 1 he populist rule the roost
n this county, holding all the best coun
ty offices, by majorities ranging from
50 to 400 and over and are gaining
ground very steadily. The Nebraska
Independent is considered a hummer by
all who are acquainted with its bright
and pungent editorials.
The people of this county vote ou $25,-
000.00 court house bonds on the 13th

ThoBtipublicani Grown so Foul That They
Openly Advertise Tbeir Villianong
The final act in the surrender of the
republican party of the first district to a
colored saloon and dive keeper was en
acted at Tecumseh on Tuesday night.
The irredeemable rottenness of the party
is shown in the account their own papers
give of the affair. The matter-of-fact
way in which the foul deal was made,
and the unblushing manner in which it
was written up in their own papers, shows
that the party is not only corrupt, but
is so far gone in its depravity that it
does not seem to realize the foulness of
its own acts. Honesty and decency
it has abandoned and it don't care who
knowsit, for it unblushingly publishes its
deals with the vile element in its own
The following account of the deal is
taken from the Lincoln Daily News of
"The first congressional district repub
lican convention, which meets at Tecum
seh tonight, will elect L. L. Liudsey of
Lincoln, and Horatio N. Dovey of Platts-
mouth delegates to the republican na
tional convention. The alliance between
Lindsey and the Cass county candidate
was not effected until this morning, al
though a sort of informal agreement was
reached yesterday. Mr. Dovey arrived
in the city yesterday afternoon, accom
panied by a number of influential Cass
county republicans, and a conference be-
twee himself and Lindsey followed.
Dovey was anxious to make a
tie-up with Bud and they Boon
got together. The remainder of
the Cass county delegation ar
rived in the city shortly after 10
o'clock, and after a short conference
agreed to stand by whatever agreement
Dovey made. There has been some
doubt of two of the Cass county repre
sentatives in relation to Lindsey, but
the fears of the latter were soon dispelled
when the delegates were seen. It was
then that the formal compact between
Lindsey and Dovey was made. Dovey
agreed to deliver Cass county's twenty-
six votes to Lindsey on the first ballot
in return for Lancaster s seventy dele
gates for himself. The combination of
Lancaster and Cass means 96 votes, or
majority of ten of the 182 voteB in the
the convention, and assures the election
of Lindsey and Dovey beyond doubt.
"The Lancaster and Cass county dele
gates assembled at the Capital hotel at
12,30 this afternoon and marched to the
Burlington depot in a body, accompanied
by a large crowd of politicians. The
crowd was a jolly one, and every one
seemed to be rampant for Lindsey and
Dovey. The Lancaster county delegates
wore neat white satin badges containing
in red ink the popular shibboleth: "For
president, William McKinley; for Con
gress, Jesse B. Strode; for district dele
gate, L. L. Lindsey.' There was a large
crowd at the depot to see the party off,
and as the train pulled out at 1:20 there
were yells for McKinley, Strode and

Don't let any one draw you aside on
tariff or anything else. Tariff don't cut
any figure in these days. We have got
tariff of 15 cents on corn and we sold it
last fall for 10 cents per bushel. Look
at the tariff on horses, etc. You can buy
all the horses you desire for a song. 1
saw a span of fine mules soli at auction
last fall for $1.25 and the parties squab
bled over the halters. I myself have
raised overl5,000 bushels of wheat right
out here in what you call the dry part
of God's moral heritage, and lost $7,-
500 at it. Shipped almost a whole train
load at one time which netted me 32
cents per bushel, that cost mo 49 cents.
This is the government average cost for
Kansas ana Nebraska. What is the
matter is underconsumption. The way
out of this is to put sufficient money in
circulation so that he who wishes to buy
can buy, and he who wishes to sell can
soli. Then if you want to put up the
tariff so that John's Bull can't jump
over, there would be some sense in it.
Now again boys, patronize the reform

county conventions, state conventions
and national conventions if convenient.
