To those of our readers who might
wish to take a Daily newspaper one
whose opinions are its own,, fearless
and outspoken, we would say that we
have made arrangements witn the pub
lishers of the Daily Call, of this city,
whereby we can furnish their Daily
and The Alliance at $6 per year.
'Or, TnE Alliance and Weekly Call,
one year for $1,50. The weekly Call
is a 6 col. quarto well tilled with good
family reading. This is an excellent
chance to get two papers for nearly the
price of one. Sample copies of Daily
or Weekly Call will be sent upon application.

Bro. Evans, of the Inman Review,
says complimentary , things for our
paper, and then scissors, purloins, or
otherwise hooks two of our editorials
last week, all of which is appreciated.
Bro. John A. Hogg, of Shelton,
says "of the crops in his vicinity.
Hundreds of acres of oats went to
the ground on account of the wet
weather. Some large fields were
never touched on the Platte valley.
The Banker's Monthly for July
recommends to its readers invest
ments in trusts. It says: "Sugar
trusts, cotton-seed oil trusts, and gas
trusts have proved advancing invest
ments, and others will be listed per

The State Journal has just discov
ered the fact that an Alliance paper
is to be published in this city. If
the Journal had been launched forth
shortly after the pilgrim fathers "first
landed iu America" it would by this
time be on the banks of the Hudson
river taking a skeptical squint at Bob
Fulton's "steam fixin' " experiment.
Bro. W. T. Allen, of Ashland,
called in to see us this week. He
Teports everything jogging along
nicely in his county. The threshing
machines are now running and the
wheat is turning out very fairly - per
acre, and the quality excellent. The
protracted wet spell during harvest
did not do the damage which was
feared by the farmers. All of which
we are glad to hear.
The Alliance has made a remarka
are r
ble growth in North Carolina, There
now 1 800 Sub-Alliances in the
teand still the good work goes
oti. This is cheering news. The
more the farmers organize the better
their rights will be protected and the
brighter will be their future. We
congratulate the "Old North State"
upon this splendid success. Farm

axiey nave got an 01a ieuow over
in rise lownsnip. Indiana, wno is
crankier than any of us. He has be
came so thoroughly imbued with the
idea that the Harrison administration
means starvation to the people that
he positively refuses to eat anything,
and has now fasted forty-three days.
But then, as an Indiana paper puts it,
he doubtless began early in order to
avoid the rush.
' The old farmer said to his boys
that "this thing of sittin around an'
waitin for sunthin to turn up, is a
good deal like sittin' down on a milk
stool and waitin for a cow to back
up to be milked." If we sit around
waiting for a mysterious something
we don't know what to turn up
and bring about a better condition of
things than we now have, we'll still
be waiting when Gabriel blows his
trumpet in the morning. Let's do
the turning up ourselves.

' These matters termed political are
simply matters of straight business,
bread and butter, dollars and cents.
Still, during political times we turn
it over in fee simple to bankers, cor
porations and hungry y office seekers,
and then go to the polls and war
rant and defend their title.
"By George. a man will go to the
poor house trying to farm in Ohio,"
said a young man from that state a
few days ago. Yes, and by George,
it seems that the farmers of that state
too are beginning to get "unruly"
just like we western fellows and the
rest of our gang down south. We'll
all get a thing or two beat into us by
and by. . ' i
There was an inclination to be
lieve among many, after the Ex
change Store started up in Winfield,
that it was only a question of a very
short time, that institution would
"go the trip," but from the showing
made by the directors on Thursday
last, it is rather on the increase
than on the decrease. After examin
ing the books of the manager care
fully, they found a business of over
$24,000 to have been done in . four
months and that after paying all ex
penses, . (which have been pretty
heavy) the Exchange - was $401
ahead. This trade was carried on
with a capital of $1,600. Dexter

It istimated that five hundred
farms pass into the hands of eastern
capitalists every day in the state of
Kansas, through the process of clos
ing mortgages and sheriff sale no
tices. Unless something can be done
to turn this tide that is overflowing
the farming element of our lovely
state, nine out of every ten of our
real estate owners will be renters and
at the mercy of the corporate money
power. Think of it, five hundred
farms every day for one year, would
make 182,500 farms. This state of
affairs is getting alarming and it is
about time something was being done
to remedy the evil.- Dexter (Kan.)
Free Press. ,
In a single day last week three and
a half millions of gold was shipped to
England. Besides this,, they are now
coming directly and purchasing
large industries and forming trusts,
selling the stock at home; thus step
by ctep we pass under the English
yoke. They will soon own our in
dustries, our government, our farms,
and we will be their tenants. . Then
the revolutionary sire will rise from
his grave to weep over his loss by
ignorance and prejudice and venality,
of all for which he fought and died.
The Yankee was smart enough to
fight for independence, but he is not
smart enough to hold the prize. He
could conquer British Armies, but
meekly surrenders to British usurers.
-Iowa Tribune.
In Barret's Life of Lincoln, pages
309 and 310, there may be found a
warning from Mr. Lincoln, the man
who was head and shoulders above
any so-called statesman now living.
It must be remembered that this
warning," as Mr. Lincoln called it
in his message to congress in 1861,
has not been permitted to appear in
the later histories of the life of Lin
coln. Here it is:
"Monarchy itself is sometimes
hinted at as a possible refuge from
the power of the people. In my
present position I could scarcely be
justified were I to omit raising a
warning voice against the approach
of returning despotism. There is
one point to which I ask a brief at-
tention. Jt is the effort to place
capital on an equal footing with or
above labor, in the structure of gov
ernment. Let them beware of sur
rendering a political power which
they already have, and which, if sur
rendered, will surely be used to close
the doors of advancement to such as
they, and to fix new disabilities upon
them, till all liberty is lost."
Later he says: "As a result of the
war, corporations have been en
throned and an era of corruption in
high places will follow, and the mon
ey power of the country will work
upon the prejudices of the people un
til all wealth is aggregated in the
hands of a few, and the, republic is
destroyed. "Ex.

roads and can grant millions of acres
of public lands for speculative pur
posts, but it cannot help the poor.

Here You Have It.
Spring Valley, III., Aug. 2.
Twin children, belonging to the wife
of one of the locked-out miners, died
here today. The" physicians pro
nounce it a clear case of starvation.
The mother had but little food- in the
house and was unable to provide
proper nourishment for them.
-Bro. John A. Hogg, deputy or
ganizer for Buffalo county, and one
of the most successful fruit growers
in that county, and a member of the
Nebraska Horticultural Society, sends
us a copy of resolutions adopted at a
late meeting at Fremont, of .interest
to farmers and fruit raisers all over
the state:
Whereas, It is known to this so
ciety that in all parts of the state,
agents or dealers solicit and take or
ders for budded apple trees, claiming
a grafted tree is worthless, being nec
essarily "black-hearted." That this
condition originates at the splice, in
the root, and spreads upward through
the tree. And
Whereas, It has. come to our
knowledge also that these persons do
not deliver budded apple trees, but
root grafted trees, and they are by
means of these false statements en
abled to sell such trees at exorbitant
prices, to-wit: From forty cents to
one dollar and fifty cents each.
Therefore be it "
Resolved, That it is the opinion of
this society and of experienced horti
culturists in general that for a vigor
ous climate a root grafted apple tree, !
properly made, is better in every re
spect than a budded tree.
Resolved, That "black-heart" does
not in any case originate and spread
Resolved. That "black-heart" is
usually caused by the unadaptability
of a tree to the climate, or the im
proper handling of a proper variety.
Resolved, That we request . the
press of the state to publish these res
olutions. A contributor to the National
Economist sums up the necessary re
form as: ''First, Abolition of land
monopoly. Second, Money at cost.
Third, Transportation at cost."
Freedom to land, freedom to ex
change the products of Jabor without
usury, and free competition in trans
portation, is the way we would put it.
These reforms imply that the indi
vidual must be free; he must have
liberty to act and to do. No statutes
or governmental - enactments should
stand in the way of his freedom.
The abolition of land monopoly is
necessary to the social advancement
and deliverance of the people, but
the statutes say no. The people are
entitled to exchange the product of
their labor without paying usury, or
in other words, the right to use or is
sue any medium of exchange they
may desire without the interference
of the state and its pets the bankers,
but the law says noi
Nothing short of liberty, absolute.
liberty, can save from the ills which
bear with such terrible weight upon
the producer. This cannot be se
cured through legislative enactments,
or by making more laws. What is
needed is to repeal, wipe out and an
nul all statutes which infringe, im
peril, or abridge the rights, the lib
erties of the individual, and the star
of social regeneracy will have risen.
It is not the money loaner, the
land grabber, and the railroad mon
opolist that hurts, but the law which
permits them to live.
Mr. Editor: I hear a good deal of
talk lately about the Farmers' Alii
ance ana 1 would like to learn all
about it I can, and therefore I desire
to ask a few questions, that I may get
more light on some points.
Is the Alliance in favor of the gov
ernment issuing money to the people
on real estate security at the same rate
" . A. Mm mm m
01 interest tnat it now issues to the
.jiavwiiai pUBLr ju ko. . iz looks as
though a few men who came to thi3
western country eighteen or twenty
years ago and homestead ed and timber
clamed one-half section of land, could
now incorporate under the laws of
this state and get their money for one
per cent per year, and then, while pay
ing the government their taxes on the
the land, could "start in business at
any of the towns - and could undersell
other firms who have to borrow money
of the banks, so that the few men
would be able to have a monopoly of
that branch'of the business and might
be the cause1 of bankrupting all the
other dealers who would be in debt to
the banks. V
Yes, under this infamous national
banking system somebody has surely,
as the Dutchman said, got to "go
burst," the only question being as to
what class .it shall be. How
ever; the farmers have the numerical
strength, and by a thorough system
of organization can save themselves.
The Farmers' Alliance infites busi
ness men af all classes to co-operate
with it, wipe out the plundering sys
tem and all be saved. If they, do
not choose to do it they will have to
be the ones' that "go burst," that's
all. ::: V'V'r::::: -j'y..W
I understand that the Alliance has
started a store at a small town on the
St. Joe & Grand Island raihoad where
there was a good store with about
$5,000 stock of goods, and I hear that
he was doing a good business, and now
I hear that he is going to leave the
place. I hear that it is a good place
for business and that it is a fine farm
ing country, and that the farmers are
as . well fixed around there as any
place. So what was the use of start
ing a store where there was one that
could furnish the community with all
the goods they wanted? ;
Yes, apparently there was only
room for one store in the locality
you speak of, but the farmers' store
must have been the one that saved
them the money, otherwise the first
one would - not be ready to ;go
Oh yes; there is one other thing I
want to know. Are the Alliance men
going to stick to the old PARTIES,
or are they going to form a new party,
or will they be .independent? If they
are independent will they ever get an
office from either of the old parties, or
would they be allowed to take part in
the caucu or convention of the grand
old republican party?
As to the Alliance sticking to the
old "PARTIES," we are not pre
pared to "say. The old deacon said
to his sen, "John, get money honest
ly if you can, but get money." So,
we presume, it will be with the Farm
ers' Alliance. If they can't get
there through the old Parr-r-rties
they'll get there anyhow.
I hear that you are publishing a pa
per called The Alliance, aud if you
publish this I will be sure to get the
paper so that Tcan see what your an
swers are to my inquiries. Hoping
that 1 haven't asked any unanswerable
questions I will await the answers.
P. S. If you answer these may 1
ask a few more questions? Q.
Sure thing. .
Under this head we eolicit short articles
from the people upon any and all subjects
of interest. We cannot undertake to be re
sponsible however for any matter appearing:

the greatest freedom to writers whereby
they can discuss, and thus take an interest

Plainview, Xseb., July 28. Ed,
Alliance. -Not seeirrg anything
in The Alliance from this place,
I will drop you a lew lines, as you
have promised to correct all gramati
cal mistakes and bad spelling. The
question that appears to interest us as
farmers is, how can we secure our
selves against the manipulation of the
political wire workers who have the
programme arranged and the tickets
made out for the dear people to ac
cept? Here the farmers have the
control of the future in their hands.
They are the safety valve, and by de
mandmg that none but farmers be
sent to represent them they can re
deem the state from the dead beats
who are, like the devil-fish, sucking
the life nd energy out of the inde
pendence of the citizens. , Now, we
.will be told that this will hurt your
party and build up the opposite par
ty. But have you not capable and
honest farmers in your party that you
can trust to represent your interests?
xi is noc gas ana gaD you want so
much as men with principle and ac
tion. But the only sure . means you
for obia m ing reform? is . in sc
1 curing representation by men of your
own class. Another effectual means
ot reaching the. candidates wold be
to bind thern by a system of promises
on printed circulars, and oblige all
candidates to give explicit answers
and sign their names to it so that
there .could be no dodging the issue.
The Farmers' Alliance can propound
all the questions that are suitable, and
localities may add those appropriate
to their local si tuation. , If the can
didate refuses to sign this obligation
leave him out in the cold and select
one who has the manhood to express
his honest convictions. The strug
gle is now between the party hacks
and -the farmers. So never , mind
your parties; vote for yourselves and
your true interests. Wishing pros
perity to The .lliance,.
Yours for justice,
J. A. Porter.
Bromfield, Neb, Aug. 4. Editor
Alliance: I am a reader of your pa
per, and when I read the notes sent to
you by the farmers I cannot help but
express myself, for there exists a most
serious .state of affairs. The most use
ful class in this country, they who
should" be the" most fortunate and in
dependent, are becoming oppressed,
the hardest worked, poorest paid, and
are looked upon as the mud si,lls of so
ciety. Now there is no necessity for
such to be the case. It should nt ex
ist, but is a reality and the fariner
knows it, and every year it becomes
worse. So I will say to my brother
farmers, stand up for your rights as
free Americans, for your cause is one
the noblest of man and is your duty to
your "posterity. Aud don't be led
estray by sleek politicians and other
important cranks, for I think that any
farmer who has not the grit to demand
his own, in receiving what he earns, is
not worthy of the name of an Ameri
can. We have between five and six
hundred members in this county who
have the spirit of 177G. We don't
mean to just cast the tea overboard,
but kick a hole through the bottom of
the ship. ' We have been supporting
too many kings. ,
Now in regard to taxation and as
sessments made on property. T be
lieve that property should be assessed
at its full cash value, and any one who
has svyoru that he has given in his
property to the assessor -correctly
should be compelled to take the as
sessed price for it if offered. I think
it would catch some men who shirk
lawful taxation. The farmers of this
county are paying taxes, on "mortgaged
property, and when the assessor comes
around to the money loaner he (the
money loaner) is very poor, own but
few notes and saddles the taxes on the
the poor man.
Not wishing to worry you, I will
close by saying that I think President
Burrows is on the right financial track.
Yours very respectfully,
B. F. McDannel .

Editor Alliance: All the farm
ers who are not stuck in the mud of
partizan politics are fairly alive to
me necessity 01 organizing to pro
tect themselves against the various
combinations of wicked, selfish men,
wno nave coniDinea lor tne purpose
ot extortion. They see the tide of
debts, mortgages and interest, rising
higher and higher, and the price of
their products sinking lower year by
year. They have at last awakened
and fully realize the fact that interest
suckers, speculators and extortioners
of every kind, have combined to filch
from them each year all the products
of their toil except barely sufficient to
keep them strong enough to produce
another crop the next year for thieves
to consume, and are now ready to
take hold of anything that well check
this system of spoliation which has
driven them to the verge of bankrupt
cy and dispair. Oh! if the farmers
could be made to see the necessity o
withdrawing their financial suppor
irom ine good lor notning sneets in
every village which are run in the in
terest of corporations and selfish
greed, and throw their moral and , fi
nariciat support to the few papers
that champion their cause so .bravely
the battle would be half won. Now;
my farmer friends, let me tell you
that just as long as you furnish the
sinews of war for the enemy and put
canons, riflesfishot guns, pistols and
squirt guns in their hands and all
oaded, you bodies will receive the
contents. In the name of God, and
or love of my country, I ask you to
help support the little band of self-
sacrificing men that are fighting so
nobly for yotit homes, your wives and
your little children. DONT allow
them to be driven from the field by
the enemy, (because they are legion)
for lack of your support. "Cast your
bread upon the waters and it will re
turn to you after many days" So

Who is to Blame!
The question asserts itself, and, re
peating itself, asks: Who is to blame
and where rests the existing evils of
today? The answer comes loud, strong
and clear with the farmer, laborer
and workingman alone. Certainly if
he monopolist has been allowed to
make the laws, he has legislated for
lis own interest; obeyed the law made
by himself ; got rich; lives in luxury
and comfort; puts his finger to his
nose and cries "hunky walker" and
trusts co on." The same stands, true
concerning all great railroad compa
nies. The constitution of the state of
Nebraska plainly says that the legisla
ttire shall control the tolls of trans
portation, and the legislature, in an
swer rono larmer s jwdu aim 1
ment do "what? Create aT Vail road
1 l j; : 1 t 1 1
commission whose chief end is to draw
their own salary, freights going up and
down at the will of the railroad com
panies, the high rate of tariff still ex-
isting. Who is to blame? Please no
tice that a few years ago a bill was in
troduced in the Nebraska legislature
reducing the rate of passenger travel
from five to three cents per mile. The
bill was introduced by the wrong par
ties (anti-monoplists) and died the
death. Two jears later the bill was
again introduced, amended so as to
read, "to and from all stations' east of
McCook," and so passed. This reduc
tion required no railroad commission,
and there is rib good, solid, sound rea
son why freight rates west of the Mis
souri ;.nd Mississippi rivers should be
so much higher than they are east of
Chicago, (jf one thing the farmers
may rest assured monied powei1' is a
hard one to fight, and if we free our
selves from the masters whom we have
helped to make, it will require closed
pockets, rolled-up sleeves, a deter
mined will, with a strong pull together
combined with" deaf ears to slick, oily
pleadings of the fellows who have got
there and propose to stay. The rail
road companies are not to blame. . If
we donate them twenty miles of land
on each side of -their road, vote im
mense bonds as an inducement for
them to lay down the iron, cive them
the undivided half of two or more sec
tions if they will plant us a depot, give
them full control 1 of the grain ele
vators, and allow them all the freight
these men of little conscience may ask.
All' this has beeri'tlone blindly, on our
part, I admit. Now I take it, the men
who have opened out the great west,
stood the storms, trials and fearful
hardships of the emigrant's life, are no
faint hearted fellows. All we need,
boys, is rousing up. We have the
power. Shall we lift? And if so, by
all means let us lift together, using the
law of our state reducing the freight
charges down to f . reasonable figure,
and putting laws upon our statute
books curtailing the power of the mon
opolist, and stamping out the trusts.
I would not advocate radical measures,
but we would enjoy a small slice of
turkey instead ot all buzzard.
II. B.
Bro, R. M. Brown, Fort Gaines,
Georgia: -Tne matter is tnat the re
publicans leaders?"protect the English
manufacturer by putting duty on raw
material so our manufacturers cannot
sell as cheap as the English, and the
democrats want to ruin our manufac
turers as well as the people who are
working for them, so that England
can send in goods free of duty, and
that is what will ruin the farmer for a
home market. Now, what we want is
to get rid of the English spies who are
holding seats in the U. S. senate and
lower house of congress, and elect men
who will let raw material come in
free, so that if our manufacturers
won't pay fair wages the workman can
unite with the farmers and put up
manufactories of their own in every
country and down old England in ev
ery hamlet in the world on goods of
all kinds, and have a home market for
our produce, and in less than ten years
we would have a country that would
support 60,000,000 more people. We
also want our: people vrho t take the
pUcea of the English spies now in
congress to Ion noney direct to tha
people at one per cent per annum, and
the government to own and operate all
railroads and telegraph the same as
the postofflces. Then we will be inde
pendent as our forefathers fought for,
in place of where we are today, slaves,
and our masters don't grub us, or
nurse us when we are sick, or bury us
when we are dead,but go on protecting
monopolies and make them the inde
pendent people of the nation.
We are working the third party here
and are going to carry the county m
order to get rid of the whisky bums of
attorneys who are running Lincoln
county and the state. We showed
Bro. Stebbins' letter in No. 6 to the X.
K. here and they say they will le right
with us; also the merchants and every
farmer. All say that the farmers hi
protectinjy themselves are doiiig what
they ought to do. Let every county im
the state and nation do the same.
Henry Facka, North Platte.
What Most We do to be S&Tcdt
Every year the farmer finds it hard
er and harder to pay interest on his
mortgaged indebtedness, to say noth
ing of the principal. Without a
change in our present systems it will
soon be impossible to keep up this
interest and mortgages will be fore
closed by the wholesale. With so
much property thrown upon the
market it will naturally be depreci
ated in value; to a mere nothing..
Those having the money will garner
m the golden harvest of other men's -long
years of weary toil and anxiety.
Now then, who has the money? Who
gets the land? There is only one
wav to avert
this pending state of
rough or
ganization and unity of actToTixthc
part of the farmers to the end that
they may have complete control of
the law-making power of the states.
This would frighten the money pow
er of the nation into'relaxinr their
hold on. the throats of the pople to
some extent through fear of gencral):
repudiation. Then by a policy iV
"Eternal vigilance is the price of'
liberty," we will go on and gradu
ally unload some of our crushing
burdens. This is the only answer to
the question, "What shall wc do to
be saved?" ' S. V.

State Agent's Notice.
It is very desirable and will save
some expense, and Im better in every
way, if the Alliances will bulk their
orders so one shipment will do for
many parties. It is found that little
or nothing can be saved on gnvceries
at retail. If orders are in unbroken
packages can be had at jobbers' rates.
Price lists are of little account only in
a general way. The. price on sugar
changed three cents in one week not
long since. Many other things the
same. Allkn Boot,
State Agent,
