WAYS AND MEANS COMMITTEE
All persons having claims against
the populist state committee should
take notice that communications re
specting such claims should be ad
dressed to Theo. Mahn, treasurer pop
ulist state 6ommittee, Alma, Nebras
ka. Secretary De France of the ways
and means committee has nothing to
do with paying the old indebtedness;
his work is wholly along the lines of
collecting funds, which, less expenses
for postage, printing, etc., necessary
to carry on his work, are turned over
to Treasurer Mahn and by him applied
on the party debts.
All letters being ssnt out this week
by Secretary De France contain an
exceedingly liberal special offer to
those who wish to spread the light of
populism and at the same time help
out the state committee. Take a sec
ond look at that letter you received.
Read it again and see if you haven't
a friend in this state or some other
who needs a great reform paper. Then
don't forget to write at once.
Great bodies move slowly. It re
quires time to cover the state of Ne
braska thoroughly with letters touch
ing upon any subject. Perhaps the
populists of Nebraska might have re
sponded a little more promptly to the
call for contributions; but, on the
whole, they are doing better each week
as the time passes. Look through the
following report of collections during
the past week.

A CHAT WITH CONTRIBUTORS.
J. C. Brown, Brainard, says: "I
am in hopes the debt will soon be
paid." It could be If every worker
would collect and send in $4.25, as Mr.
Brown did. Of course, all cannot do
this; but many might.
A contributor at-Beemer says: "I
am the only pop in the township;
think I will go with the democrats, as
it is too lonesome this way for me."
J. P. Batten, Endicott, one of the
best workers for the people's party
and populist papers in all Nebraska, in
sending in a collection of $2 for the
fund, remarks: "I am nearly as old
as the editor, but do not claim to be
nearly so smart. I think The Indep
endent is the most reliable paper in
the United States. Today I read an
article in it making socialism identi
cal with republicanism. That does
beat well, the fact is, I don't care to
attack anybody or party advocating
government and municipal ownership
of all public utilities, and I look upon
them as friends. a'he Independent
made its record telling the truth and
fighting the enemy. Keep at that, Mr.
Editor, and let our friends pass with
out a whack, as we need all the help
possible to steer the old ship off the
rocks. We have about made up our
minds that fusion doesn't win so
some of us will probably be out of
politics till something turns up." (Edi
tor Tibbies is amply able to defend his
position regarding socialism, but I
would say to Mr. Batten that a large
part of the difference in opinion arises
from how each defines the word "so
cialism." Mr. Tibbies Insists that so
cialism means the common ownership
of ALL the means of production .and
governmental operation of these
means; that under it no man would
have individual ownership of the re
sult of his toil. The farmer would
plant only such crops as the govern
ment might direct; the baker would
bake just the number of loaves each
day that the government ordered; and
so on, and so on. Mr. Tibbies makes
this distinction between public owner
ship of public utilities Under populism
and such ownership under socialism:
Under populistic public ownership and
operation of railroads, for example, ev
ery employe would own his own cloth
ing, his own household goods, prob
ably his own home; would draw his
wages and spend it just as he pleases,
the same as at present; while under
socialistic ownership and operation of
the railroads, the "government," own
ing ALL the means of production,
would own the railroads, own the em
ploye's clothing, his home, his food
and virtually own the employe him
self. De France.)
J. H. Berryman, attorney, Creighton,
says: "Our people haven't much
friendship for the recent powers in
control of the party. Our people were
turned down all along, and were not
known save when their votes were
wanted. There isn't much difference
between republican misrule and in
gratitude of political friends. The
former is more expensive the latter
more humiliating. Why don't a few
of your fellows who have drawn sal
aries for years for doing nothing
like the secretaries of the state board
of transportation put their hands in
their jeans, and pay."
S. M. Haynes, Glenrock, is sorry
that the party has a big debt on hand;
"but as the democrats tried to swal
low us and partly succeeded, I think
they ought to pay our debts, as it was

will no more. The privates in the

G. C. Noble, chairman county cen
tral committee, Crete, writes: "I have
been talking to some of our people
about this debt; and we have decided,
before making any personal or other
donation to pay that shortage, to make
the inquiry how the state committee
became so much involved? Is it be
cause they are following the same
plan as laid down by the two old
parties? If so, we shall contribute
very slowly. We have supposed that
the independent party was run on the
economic plan. Reform must start
from within, and not from lines prac
ticed by old and corrupt parties. If
you can show 10 us where so much
money has been spent, and show that
it has been wisely expended, we may
contribute a small sum. Otherwise,
we make no promises." If Mr. Noble
has been reading The Independent, he
can arrive at a sufficiently accurate
conclusion regarding the expenditures.

"If the populists of this state' have
paid one dollar each for the last cam
paign fund, It would seem to me to be
enough to clear, all expenses." R. C.
Best, Bladen. True enough. But they
have not, on the 1 average, paid ten
cents each. If they had, there would
not now be an unpaid debt. It Is a dif
ficult matter to address communica
tions to 50,000 to-75,000 persons; the
postage bill alone would amount to
$500 to $750; and . then, say, only ten
per cent of them responded with a
dime each, the receipts would not pay
expenses. That is why every man who
can ought to contribute a quarter or
more. Besides, It Is difficult to get an
accurate list of the populists in each
locality, unless our friends will fill
the blanks sent to them.

think if the democrats had given us

republicans took advantage of it."

Being chairman of a state committee
is not an unmixed pleasure. If he be

be charged with apathy. M. C. Dill of

der the weather, but says: v'T will
see the fellows and remit, although I
know that the funds were recklessly
wasted by Edmisten. He made us

to some meeting." Probably if no

valuable (?) suggestions as to how
the committee should have done. One
stalwart pop said he did not feel very
much like giving, for we had no busi

been just as loud in his denunciation
of the opposite course."
W. D. Shike,- formerly of Clay Cen

W. A. Schamp, Goehner, remarks
that "one would think, after the vote

that we pops would have enough of fu

Mrs. C. Dunn, Blair, remarking that
her husband is away from home, takes

in a draft for $40, with list of contri
butors, and says: "I want to see every
cent of that debt paid, just as if it were
my individual indebtedness. I, for
one, have perfect confidence in Chair
man Edmisten and his associates on
the committee and believe that the
money was used to the best advantage;
