THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT
(Joined by Both old parties Concerning
Mr. President, it has been quite a com
mon thing for republicans and demo
crats in speeches, letters, and interviews
to speak disparagingly of the populist
party, and to assert that populists are
not silver men, although they believe in
its use, but that they are in favor of a
limitless volume of irredeemable paper
money. That assertion has been fro-
qUTHu Where has that been
mTaIusn. It was chanred by the
senior senator lrom Idaho Mr. Dubois
and the junior senatorfrom Kansas Mr,
Uakerlashort time ago in speeches in
this chamber, lhave seen it stated in
letters and interviews recently by repub
lican and democratic senators. Ihe pop
ulist party, so say these gentlemen, is m
favor of a limitless volume ofirredeem
able paper money. It is very strange
that populists are compelled to go away
from home to get the news. Mr. 1 resi
dent, there is not a populist in congress
or out of it, between the two oceans or
to be found between Canada and the
Gulf, who advocates that doctrine, and
there never has been a man who advo
cated it. I want to say to the senior
senatorfrom Idaho and and the junior
senator from Kansas that when they
told the senate and the country that the
populiHt party was in favor of a limitless
volume of irredeemable paper money
they did not know what they were talk
ing about. Such a declaration is not in
the populist platform; it can notbefound
in any authoritative declaration of the
party, state or national. It can befound
nowhere outside of speeches and utter
ances of democratic and republican
But what i this assertion made for7
The populist party numbers 2.000,000
voters today. In the first six years of
its national existence, it has in some sec
tions of the country, threatened the com-
flete destruction of the two old parties,
think my honorable friend from Texas
Mr. Mills is experiencing a strong
touch of populism in his state ot this
time. It is necessary to ring the alarm;
something must be said that will stamp
the populists as vagarists and men claim
ing and desiring the accomplishment of
impossible things to prevent the people
from leaving the two old parties and
joinings its ranks.
Mr. President, every form, of paper
money we have is redeemable, under the
law. There is no man living, with seuse
enough to be called a man, and deserv
ing recognition as such, who does not
k now that a limitless volume of irre-
deemable paper money would mean the
absolute destruction of the government
that indulged in it. Then why do these
gentlemen make such statements l hey
are afraid to meet the real issue. They
dread the advancement of the populist
nartv. Thev make these statements to
keep their party friends in line, and they
hold ur before them the tariff question
to diweive them airain. While cold bonds
and gold bands are being riveted on the
limbs of the uniortunate toners, wuue a
perpetual national debt is being piled up
mountain high to plague and vex gen
erations to come for all time, our repub
lican and democratic friends, for mere
nartv success, utter this false assertion
acrainst the populist party.
Mr. President, the people will not
loncorbe deceived. They realize that
when either a republican or a democrat
occupies the White House, falling prices,
- want, misery, and poverty exist among
the masses. The man who seems to
know the least of the populist party and
its beliefs usually asserts the roost and
makes the most radical misstatements
regarding it. Extract from speech of
The Motive of Both Part leu.
I desire to demonstrate that there is
no distinction between the moving power
of the republican party, and the moving
power of that part of the democratic
party now in control of the government,
in the interpretation of our statutes so
as to make all forms of our paper money
redeemable in gold.
What effect has this? Why, it forces
the government to issue bonds; that Is
its purpose. That is the purpose that
receives support from both the old po
litical parties. You can see this purpose
. manifest in the gold press, in the daily
press, the weekly press, and in magazine
articles. The time has come, they say,
when the United States, like England,
must have a perpetual national debt;
and, with a perpetual national debt in
the form of bonds, we will hold the coun
try together when all other things fail.
The capitalistic classes must have some
thing in which to invest their surplus
money. Therefore the scheme has been
started, prompted and promoted by
both old parties, to engulf this nation in
a perpetual national aeDt, resting as a
mortgage upon the property and indus-
a perpetual national aoDt, resting as a
try of our producing classes.
Mr. President, can it mean anything
else? Why, sir, it means even more. It
means another conspiracy4 to transfer
for all time the sovereign power to issue
money from the government, where the
constitution placed it, to the hands of
the national banks. Mr. Cleveland said
in his annual message to congress, and
it was repeated by Mr. Carlisle in his re
port as secretary of the treasury, that
what we must do is to divorce the gov
ernment from the issuance of any form
of paper money and turn over that power
wholly to the national banks. Has any
man ever been able to tell why the gov
ernment's sovereign power to issue
money should be abandoned and a few
private corporations be permitted to
usurp it? No, sir; it was conferred on
the government by the constitution for
the benefit of the people for all genera
tions of our national existance, and there
never was the slightest thought of trans
ferring it to private corporations until
the exigencies of our recent civil strife
seemed to make it temporarily necessary.
The author of the scheme declared that
it was a temporary expedient; that it
was a war measure, and that when the
war was over, it would pass away and
the right to issue money would revert to
the government, where it belongs. Ex
tract from speech of Senator Allen.

The Nebraska school fund has $500,

has been trying to get the state board to
invest that money so that it will bring
an income to the public schools. First
he asked to have it invested in state
warrants which daw five per cent interest
but it is refused. Then he suggested an
investment in government bonds, but

For the N. E. A. Meeting
at Buffalo, N. Y. July 7th to 11th, it will
be of interest to teachers and their
friends to know that arrangements have
been successfully accomplished by the
Nickel Plate Road providing for the sale
of excursion tickets at $12.00 for the
round trip with $2.00 added for member
ship fee. Tickets will be on sale July 5th
and 6th and liberal return limits will be
granted. For further information as to
stop overs, routes, time of trains, etc.,

The method pursued by the Nickel
Plate Road by which its agents figure
rates as low as the lowest, seems to
meet the requirements of the traveling
public. No one should think of purchasing
a ticket to Buffalo H. K A. Convention

the rate is over the iNickel Plate road.

before purchasing tickets. A fare of

EBS MUTUAL IXSCBANCE CO. OF DOUG
LAS COUNT V, NEBRASKA.
A great celebration the first of its kind
in Nebraska, will be held on Saturday
June 13th in Riesers Park near Omaha.
On that day the Gorman Farmers' Mu
tual Insurance company of Douglas
county will celebrate the twenty-mtn
auuiversaay of their organization. The
company will hold their twenty-fifth an
nual meeting on that day; will have a
concert in the park hall, and some good
speeches fitting the occasion in the after
noon, ana wma up witn a grana u&u in
in the evening.
This company is the oldest Mutual
Fire Insurance company in the stats of
Nebraska. It was organized in June
1871 by eighteen German farmers of
Douglas county under the old insurance
laws of the state, lieury incite Deing tne
main originator of the organization, and
also its first president.
The company now has a membership
of 165 members, with an amount of risks
or policies issued of $289,809.50 (Jan-
nary statement.) A reserve fund of $8,
466.16 is at the disposal of the company
to pay promptly trie losses which may
occur. During the twenty-five years of
its existence the company has paid four
teen losses to members, amounting to
$5,700.68 and every loss was paid
promptly and satisfactorily.
In the year leai tne company incor
porated under the new Mutual Fire In
surance law of the state, which law was
passed by the legislature of that year. A
board of seven directors manage the af
fairs of the company.
" The present president of tne company
is Claus Sievers, P. O. Omaha and C. H

Officers and members of other Mutual
Insurance companies of the state are ex

possible will 10m them in the celebration.
I think every insurance man in Nebraska
would learn something from the above
invitation by which he could refute re
ports of old line agents, when they say
that Mutual companies are short lived
This company is but a small company,
165 members, all Germans. The plan is
to make an annual assessment on the
members with the idea in view of getting
an amount of money large enough that
interest on the same when invested will
pay their losses and expenses. We un
derstand that at their last annual meet

was organized, they laiied to make an
We hope that a representative from
every company in Nebraska will joiu
the Douglas county company on the 13th
of June, and if so we will surely have
time for a consultation on mutual insur
ance matters in general.
In our cyclone company we will have
to make an assessment, the Falls City
cyclone on Sunday the 17th has wrecked
some farm buildings insured in our com
pany, but no losses have been adjusted
so far, hence we could not tell at this
time what the assessment will be. It
seems that we aredoomed for some wind
this year, hence it would be well enougli
for those who are not insured against
cyclones to see that their application is
on file in the secretaries othce before a
storm occurs. It is not safe to say that
because a cyclone has never occurred in
your neighborhood, there never will one
occur there, because from this reasoning
thousands of dollars are lost to numbers
of people when a storm does occur. The
cost for the first four years of this com
pany has been so small that no one need
hesitate to go in the company. Your
fees are $3.00 for the first $1,000.00 of
insurance, and an additional ten cents
for each one hundred dollars added, thus
a $2,000.00 policy will cost you $4.00.
We have had but two assessments since
the company was organized amounting
to $1.50 per $1,000.00 thus you will see
that the cost for $1,000.00 forfour years
has been $4.50, for $2,000.00 it has
If anybody gives you any different
figures from the above mentioned it is
for some other company than ours.
So many hail inquiries are coming in
daily, it seems that our hail company
will be a mammoth concern this year.
The total cost cannot exceed sixteen
cents per acre. Indemnity limit $5.00
ler acre. There is room in our company
or every farmer in Nebraska.
