Its obju are to seek a suitable
location, secure zectssa.ry la ads. or
ri!ie a body of settlers aad effect

purely a tnuiaea institution, to be
conducted along lines of honesty aad
fair-dealing, wit Lout pretense of doing
a treat charitable work or of riving
something fcr nothing. Its promoters
re enlaced In the work for exactly tbe
uxm reason that tbe farmer plants a
crop or tte merchant bays and sells
roods. It eipects to benefit its patrons
by oitrrozzlzg a tumber of tbe difficul

Tils Is not possible by Individual ef

posed by Henry George but tbat at
pretest is only a dim possibility. L'a
ul such time comes, if it ever does, we
must take tbe world as we find It,
makirg tbe best use of our possibili
ties. L'cder our plan, too, we minim
ize tbe expense of seeking a location,
oar company, tt a comparatively small
cot doing tbe same work and Just
as well as each of tbe two thousand
or more members working Individual

sand people we are enabled to secure
better concessions oa a larse l1y of
land than coull tbe antlers themselves
acting Independently. And it will be
found cpon further examination of our
plan that cur Interests are so inter
twined with those of our settlers that
we cannct afford to select any but such
location as will prove most beneficial
to our members. Our ultimate success
depends cpoa tbe prosperity of our
WHAT IT IS NOT.
The Independent Home Makers Com
pany Is not orgaaixed to exploit some
new theory In sociology, politic? 1 econ
omy or religion. Those managing its
affairs differ widely upon many points
la tbee subjects, yet all agree that
while the Individual Is the unit In our
system of government, the home Is the
first and dearet circle ia the entire
system, and that every family should
own a home. Tbe Independent Home
Makers Company was not organized
to provide an avenue for speculation.

boaa fide settler might secure a home
for himself and family. There was no
Intention of providing a way for the
man of plenty cf means to secure a
better home thaa he cow enjoys be Is
able to take care cf himself without
cooperating with others. It is doubt
less trae that practically all of the
lands most desirable in every way,
are now e-rcepied by settlers; but It Is
not true that all tbe fertile lands, cap
able of producing large crept, are set

large bodies of excellent land, where
the water is good and climate health
ful, yet unoccupied by settlers, or only
sparsely settled, because ttey are sit
uated a long distance from railroads.
This disadvantage Is reduced to a
minimum by our plan. In otber local
ities are large tracts of denuded timber
lands still awaiting settlement by per
sons energetic enough to clear them
up; and, while we have no thought
now of attempting such a task, by co
operation and modern methods the
work of clearing off the stumps need
not be such a Herculean undertaking
as at first sight appears.
About SO ,000 acres of land will be
needed for our undertaking. This will
be ia as compact a body as possible.
Near the ceater, or at aome point
where natural advantages render it
advisable, a section, or so much as may
be necessary, will be surveyed and
platted as the cite for our city into
business lots, residence lots, and sur
rounding them, five-acre and ten-acre
tracts. Further out, twenty and forty
acre tracts will be laid out; and still
further, the 80 and 160-acre tracts.
The Home Makers Company will re
tain the alternate land tracts, allot
ting the others to members according
to their desires and the number of
shares taken. But no allottment of a
tract of land manifestly inferior to
that surrounding it will be made to
any member, as we desire to please
and satisfy all our members if possible.
Membership in the Home Makers
Company is secured by purchasing lo
cation stock at $23 per share. No
member may purchase more than 20
shares. Members are not required to
make complete payment down, but ap
plication for location stock should be
accompanied by an advance payment
For twenty shares. ...$100 00
For twelve shares 75 00
For eight shares 50 00
For five shares ; 60 00
For three shares or less 25 00
This Is a guarantee that you mean
business, because we cannot hold our
books open indefinitely, or waste time
with those who might otherwise join
out of pure curiosity and later with
draw at the last moment. On our part
we agree, in the event that we cannot
secure a sufficient number of members
to put the plan into practical opera
tion, to return to you your advance
payment, less a small amount to cover
postage, advertising and little inciden
tal expenses. None of the company's
officers receive any salary out of this
their reward depending wholly upon
the success of the undertaking.
Final payment on location stock
must be made within thirty days after
notice is given that a sufficient num
ber of members has been secured and
the location selected. There will,
however, be no forfeitures should any
member be unable to pay for the whole
number of shares he subscribed for.
For example, you have subscribed for
twenty shares and have paid down
$100; should you be unable to raise
the remaining $400 when call Is made,
payment of $200 would entitle you to
twelve shares (80 acres); $100 would
give you eight shores (40 acres); $25
would give you five shares (20 acres) ;
or you could ask for four paid up
shares, without additional payment,
and be entitled to a ten-acre tract and
residence lot. or such other combina
tion as the four shares would cover.
However, we earnestly request mem
bers not to ask for more shares thaa
they can pay for conveniently, as our
purchase of lands will be based oa the
number of shares upon which first pay
ment has been made.

AS TO LOCATION.
Our first thought was Oklahoma,
but a very large percentage of our
members and prospective members
prefer Oregon or Washington. Upon
investigation we agree with them. The
president of our company will, in the
near future, make a preliminary tour
of inspection in those states and report
progress from week to week. Be
tween the Cascades and Coast Range
mountains are millions of- acres of
good land, in many places unsettled
or only sparsely settled because of
great distance to railroads; but rail
roads will come to a community as
large as ours; and until they do, over
land freighting will give occupation
for a good many of our people. The
disadvantages of such a location to
the single settler, or to half a dozen
families, are manifest; but two thou
sand families or more would hardly
feel Isolated, even a hundred - miles
from a railroad. The prerequisites
are: good soil, good climate, good
water the good neighbors will go to
gether. Objections to Oregon or Washington
on account of greater transportation
charges to the place of settlement will
be met as far as possible by our com
pany. After we have secured our lands
we . shall enter into negotiations with
the leading railroad systems for rates
on trainloads of household goods,
stock, etc., and believe we can make
arrangement favorable to our mem
bers. AS TO OURSELVES.
The officers of the Independent
Home Makers Company are composed
of the following well-known gentle
men: President, Frank L. Mary, Lincoln,
Neb., six years chief clerk in the office
of the governor of Nebraska; four
during the incumbency of Governor
Silas A. Holcomb, and two under the
succeeding administration of Governor
William A. Poynter..
Vice president, A. H. Armstrong,
proprietor of the Armstrong Clothing
Co., Lincoln, Neb., one of the largest
and most substantial clothing houses
in the state of Nebraska, with busi
ness extending into all the surround

onel of the First regiment Nebraska
volunteers. - -
Reference by permission is made to
ex-Governor Silas A. Holcomb, now
judge of the supreme court, and to ex
Governor William A. Poynter, both
of Lincoln, Neb.; as to the honesty and
trustworthiness of the company's offi
cers, especially as to the president and
auditor and secretary. The reputation
of our treasurer, Col. Eager, as a suc
cessful manager is established in the
business world; and the same may be
said of Vice , president Armstrong,
who by energy and fair dealing has
built up one of the largest mercantile
establishments in the west, v
But we desire to , make every pros
pective purchaser of location stock
perfectly assured that his money will
be used as outlined in the company's
prospectus, and arrangements are be
ing completed to bond our treasurer in
the United States Fidelity and Guaran
tee company, of Maryland a corpora
tion with $1,500,000 cash capital. This
bond will be increased from time to
time as the amount in the treasurer's
hands increases, thus giving absolute
security and insuring a proper han
dling of the funds. We have selected
the Columbia National bank of Lin-,
coin as our depository. Dr. P. L. Hall,
late secretary of the state banking
board, is cashier of this bank, and is
known to nearly every citizen of the
state. By permission we refer pros
pective members to Dr. Hall also as
to the integrity of our officers.
Our company is organized to afford
people of small means to secure homes
at a moderate outlay, securing the
benefits . and advantages of a large
number of people co-operating, and we
guarantee that promises to our mem
bers shall be honestly and faithfully
Perhaps you have a son, or several
of them, growing up to manhood, and
your present farm will soon be too
small to ,furnish employment for your
whole family. Why not take some
shares in the Home Makers Company
and get a quarter section of good land
for each of your boys?
A gentleman who has travelled ex
tensively over, Oregon says that be
tween the Coast Range and the Cas
cade mountains is a vast territory with
soil of great fertility, plenty of rain
fall, (yet not so extreme as west of
the Coast Range), where, as he ex
presses it, "All a man needs is a ca
bin and $2.50 in money he can raise
absolutely everything he needs to
make a living." He remarks that a
great portion of this fertile soil is very
thinly settled because of long distance
to railroad or water transportation.
The principle of "first come, first
served" is always? fair, and will be ob
served in making" allottments. In the
very nature of things it will be im
practicable to allow each member to
make his choice because that would
necessitate his Jjfang on the ground at
the time allottment begins. But mem
bers will be divided into classes, ac
cording to the allottments they de
sire.. Suppose yours is the first appli
cation for a forty-acre tract: when al
lottment of the-' forties is made, yours
will be the first-forty allotted, which,
other things being equal, would place
you nearer the .city limits than later
comers. In addition to the regular
printed number on your receipt will
be found a notation like this: "1-40,"
2-BL, 3-80, 4-160 which means that
yours is the first application for forty
acres, or the second for a business lot,
the third for an eighty-acre tract, or
the fourth for a quarter section, as the
case may be. Should there be any of
the tracts manifestly inferior to the
average of the whole . tract (which
nearly always is the case in any large
body of land, no matter how favorably
located), these will be retained by the
company and not allotted by members.
Already applications have been made
for nearly SO per cent of the 160-acre
allottments. And the smaller tracts

ABOARD A PEST SHIP
A Recent Experience With th Modern
Savage of tbe South American Re
public. Seme very hot protests have been
made to the state department concern
ing the barbarous treatment of a ship,
by several South . lerican republics,
that had yellow fever aboard. A case
Is .cited of passengers being confined
in a fever ship for a month while the
vessel was turned away from port af
ter port and all assistance refused, the
fever meanwhile continuing its rav
ages on board.
The consul general inclosed a letter
from Archer Harmon, manager of an
Ecuador railroad enterprise,, who says
that he was one of a party of fourteen
who boarded the steamer Chile at Pa
nama on July 9 last. The second day
out there was a death from yellow
lever. There was no quarantine sta
tion on the Ecuador coast. At Payta
there were two more deaths. The port
refused to permit, the steamer in the
harbor. The supposed doctor aboard
the ship had palmed himself off as a
physician to secure free passage. At
Callao there were two deaths, and the
authorities there refused to permit
connection with the short, or send a
physician, medicine or disinfectants
The Peruvian authorities declined
to allow a steamer W. R. Grace & Co.
had chartered for the party to take
them off, and the Chile had to proceed
to sea until the Peruvian authorities
would permit a landing. The ship went
to Arica, but meantime two or three
deaths occurred, and a small gunboat
from Arica drove the steamer out of
the harbor, refusing to provide either
medicine or disinfectants or provi
sions. At Pisagua the authorities at
tempted to drive the ship out of the
harbor, but as the steamer had no coal
it wras impossible to proceed.
Finally, with the steamer five miles
off shore, coal barges were anchored a
mile and a half from the steamer, the
steamer crew towed the barges out
and unloaded them, and the barges
were then sunk. Meantime one or two
further deaths had occurred. Failing
to get either medicine or disinfectants,
the. ship proceeded to Valparaiso, ar
riving, after several more deaths,
about August 15, where the passengers
landed after a careful inspection. Mr.
Harman says there Is no place where
a steamer with an infectious disease
aboard can land or discharge its pas
sengers on the west coast of South
America, nor is it possible to secure
medicine, disinfectants or medical at
tention. The shadow of the dark ages still
hangs over those republics. If this
government instead of spending its
energies in wars of conquest should
do a little toward bringing tbe meth
ods of modern civilization to the be
nighted regions lying next door to It,
it would be much more laudable busi
ness than trying to destory the aspira
tions for freedom in the people of Asia
and South Africa.
KANSAS CITY BOODLERS
The Only Wy to Rid Thai Municipality
and all Others f Them Is to Adopt,
tbe Principle f Populism.
For 'years city councils have been
bought by the corruption funds of cor
porations. So have legislatures. The
populists proposed a sure remedy for
such evils and it was received with
cries of "lunacy." Untold millions of
property has passed Into the hands of
the rich manipulators of corporations
owning street car franchises, city wa
ter works, electric lighting, gas com
panies and most of all to railroad mag
nates by the purchased votes of leg
islators and city councilmen. The evil
has grown to unbearable proportions.
There Is a general revolt in society
against It. Populists say that there is
but one sufficient remedy the refer
endum. Down in Kansas City they are
trying another remedy. It is a hang
man's noose. A Kansas City paper
gives an account of how that sort of a
Members are restricted to holding
not td exceed twenty shares each. Thev
may, however, make such selection or
commnation or selections of allott
ments as they may desire. They may
apply their shares on city lots, snbar
ban tracts, or farm tracts or any com
bination of all, Just so they remain
Within the limit of. twenty shares.
A number of parties interested in
our Home Making plan have sent in
valuable suggestions In regard to the
laying out and platting of our city.
We desire to express our thanks for
the same and will keep their sugges
tions in mind when the time arrives
for that part of the work.

aucn allotment as the amount raid
(Besidonce or Butiaeia)
scheme is worked and the effect pro
duced: "Armed citizens with noosed rones
prevented an extension of the street
railway franchises at a council meet
ing here last night which did not ad
journ until after midnight this morn
ing. "There has long been vigorous oppo
sition to the asked for twenty-year ex
tension, and every council meeting has
been attended by "committees of safe
ty" to see that the council did not put
the objectionable ordinance through.
Last night, although the attendance of
citizens was larger than usual, the
council put the ordinance on Its final
passage. When the roll call began,
half a dozen coils of manila rope were
thrown from the lobby Into the midst
of the aldermen, and there were cries
of "Hang them!" "Choke the bood
lers!" and the like.
"A big laboring man leaped over the
rail, seized one of the ropes and be
gan to make a noose in it. At this an
alderman, instead of voting when his
name was called, moved to adjourn un
til this afternoon. The motion was de
clared carried and Mayor Marshman
and the alderman tried to make their
escape by a side door. The mob crowd
ed around them, however, and refused
to permit them to leave the hall.
"After speeches by Mayor Harshman
and several members of the citizens'
committee, it was . agreed to let the
councilmen go on their pledge not to
attempt to pass the objectionable or
dinance that afternoon. The pledge
was kept, and it is probable that no
further attempt will be made to pass
the ordinance. The present council re
tires next week, having been . over
whelmingly defeated at yesterday's
There is no doubt that the members
of that council deserve hanging, but
will this process prove successful?
Would it not have been much more
orderly for Kansas City to have
adopted populism and long ago provid
ed that no franchise should be granted
until submitted to a vote of the peo
ple? Populism stands for law, order
and sound principles of government.
Let Kansas City elect a populist coun
cil and such scenes as are recorded
above will not occur.
