Editor Alliaxck: As it is about
thru: ; that the farmers ami the reading
public are making their .selections of
reading matter for the ensuing year.
I would like to ask 1113 brother farmers
a question or two, and make a proposi
tion to them. Why is it, brother farmers
that most of us will subscribe for and
support so many monopoly papers, pa
pers that are owned and managed by j
corporations and monopolists, who make
it their business to give the farmers
and laboring men as little attention
as fiossible, but are always working for
monopolists? The answer is generally
this: We. want a good, newsy paper,
and the stale papers are the best. Now,
'brother farmers, we have a live litt le pa- j
per that is in its infancy, called Tiik
Fakmkks' Alliaxck, published at Lin
coln, Nebraska, and managed by good,
competent men who are capable of giv
ing us just such a paper as we want, but
how can we expect thou to do it if we
U not support it? It will not he long
before our legislature convenes, when
we want some paper that, will give us
information as to how our members and
senators are representing us. As It is,
we only get part of it. while we want all
of their transactions. Now if each
Alliance man would send in his dollar
and al-o one new subscriber it would
furnish capital enough to give us a
st:Ue paper second to none i it the state.
If you cannot get a subscriber besides
yourself, ,send in your dollar and have
it -rut to a friend in the east or west.
Don't have it said that the farmers of
Nebraska have a little half starved pa
per. Let us feed it and see if we can't
boo-t it up ahead of any paper in the
-tate. I know a dollar looks as big as
a rart wheel to most of us when corn is
-only 1",' to 14 cents per bushel, but we
e:-n rai-e it and don't miss it after it is
Mu. Editor, I will start the ball to
rolling by sending in $;i.'2i, and will
seiul more soon. Who will be the next?

Letter From L. . Todd, Money and
Union, Dec. 188!).
KniTou Alliance: 1 think an apol
ogy is due for so long neglecting to send
you th" consideration for value received.
I had the honor of an appointment to
t lie silver convention at St. Louis but
bring one of the plaintiffs in the Cass
county bond contest at l'lattsinouth,
found it impossible to leave at that
time. 1 should ha e been highly grati-iii-d
to have been I here.
F this day read the eoinments on the
Presidents message, ami I noticed the

money wis se.nve and prices low if my
memory serves mo right. On the ques
tion of silver, I think the president will
take whatever the congress sees lit to
give him. lb seems to have no settled
policy, but shows signs of having, like
Sampson's heifers, been plowed with.
1 am not able to see why the people of
1 he United States of America should not
form coin anil regulate the legal money
for our own people. When the people
f other nations or countries want any
thing we have to sell, either gold. Silver.
copper, lead, corn, pork or 1 f, or
other products of labor, we can swap
for the mutual bcuetit of all concerned.
To base a silver certificate on the
value per ounce of bullion at a stated
time would be worse than nonsense.
The power to make a dollar is sovereign
.and does not nor cannot depend on the
value of the material out of which the
dollar is made. The government must
establish some principle upon which
money hereafter shall be supplied or
furnished. If it chooses the hard metal
it must stand as formerly in support of
-,'ilver as well as of gold, and v must
trust in the Lord and labor for a supply;
or on the other hand must exercise the
constitutional power to stamp paper
money and maintain as near as possible
a steady and sure volume regulated by
j Vr capita of population. L, (i. Todd.
AN INDORSEMENT FOR H. R. EAGLE

county organizer, the delegates of the
different subordinate Alliances met at

No resolutions were adopted, nor a
unanimity of sentiment and principles

G. J. Richmond, Secy.
The government is now run on the
plan of saving the money-kings the
bankers from any trouble, inconven
ience, or losses. "The United States
Treasury comes to their relief whenever
the sky is cloudy. It has done so time
and again. It even buys up the bonds
which were bought at (0c. or less on the
dollar, at a premium of from Hi to 24
cents on the par dollar! And yet and
yet you strugglingchidren of toil that
same kind government sees you mort
gaged to the teeth to consuming Shy
locks with 4S(),0l)0,()00 locked in its
its own vaults without loaning a cent to
labor. It could do so at three per cent
to every advantage conceivable. And
then, if foreclosure take place, the peo
ple would own the land. Kind govern
ment that which sees labor in its rags
because of its protection to the Sodo
mites. ( J rent West.
Mr. 1). C. Powell of Nebraska, writes:
I see by a late issue of your paper on
the fourth page near the bottom of the
tirst column, reference to torged bonds.
My understanding is that the law passed
both Houses of Congress and was signed
by the Speaker of each House with the
word "for," and that the word "after"
was inserted before it reached the Pres
ident, or was inserted while in his hands.
Will the Tribune please give through its
columns the facts in reference to this
forgery regardless of who it hits? Yours
TKIBirNE's AN SAVER.
The funding bill had been in confer
ence between the two Houses of Con
gress for many vteks. and it seemed
that the conferees well nigh despaired
of reaching a satisfactory conclusion.
They finally agreed to a report which
left out the seventh section of the bill.
The conferees made reports to their re
spective Houses which were spread upon
the journals and printed in the Record.
The report made to the House contained
the clause making- the bonds payable at
the pleasure of the government for
thirty years. It was then printed in the
Record in that shape and so spread
upon the journals. Ko correction was
ever made in the House proceedings at
any subsequent time. The same report
was made to the Senate, and it was
agreed to in that shape. The bill was
so enrolled, but the copy ou tile at the
Secretarv of State's office showrs the
word "for' has been erased and the word
"after" substituted. The Senate Jour
nal shows the same alteration, but no
action of either the Senate or House was
ever had authorizing the change. Both
would have to concur to make the alter
.The writer lias thoroughly examined
every page of the Record, and the above
.statements are accurate. No funding
bill was ever passed which took away
the right of the United States to pay at
any time. The intention of the law
makers has nothing whatever to do
with the question. What they in fact
did is the sole point of inquiry. - The
bonds conform to the unauthorized al
teration, and not to the law as passed.
Now, what is the legal effect? To make
the bonds illegal and void? Certainly
not. They are valid as common law ob
ligationsr minus the fraud, and are right
fully and lawfully payable at the pleas
ure of the government whenever it can
command the money to liquidate them.
The matter was first unearthed by Rep
resentative Ralph Plumb of Illinois, and
the writer went over the whole matter
A1tli him. It Ls not known who made
the change. The alteration was- a great
outrage upon the people, as indeed was
t he whole funding, scheme. The present
premium on bonds is the result of this
criminal tinkering, and every dollar paid
out by the Secretary as- px-emiums- is- a
misappropriation of the public- fuxuL.

FROM OHIO S KANNEIC ItEPUKLR'AX
A private letter written from the
banner republican county of Ohio, that
which produced Joshua R. Guiding
and Benjamin F. AVade, throws a flood
of light on the condition of the farmers
of that fertile country:
"The farmers are all distracted here
abouts. They can't sell enough of any
thing to pay taxes. Cattle have not
been so low and so little in demand for
forty years. My farm is an elephant on
my hands, and a sickly pachyderm at
that. Although I have plenty of feed,
I sometimes think it would be cheaper
to give my cattle away than to winter
them, but i shall keep them to increase
the compost heap, .so dear to the farm
er's heart, which will turn my elephant
into a garden next summer. If I have
good luck I may then be able to sell out.
but I shall be glad to sell for a third of
what I refused a few years ago. "Wher
ever 1 go I hear complaints of the
scarcity of money among farmers. One
farm under splendid cultivation, just
two miles from town and only forty
rods from the railroad tracks, was re
cently sold for $14 an acre, although it
was purchased not long ago for $4o an
acre. Where is this to end?' Great
A Disgrace to Civilization.
It is almost incredible that the Spring
Valley Coal Company should upon re
opening its mines refuse employment to
the miners who took food, clothing and
medicine to sick and hungry folks dur

terday. A more brutal and damnable action
can hardly be conceived in a civilized
community. It has cowed the relief

When spring comes the slick directors
of this wealthy corporation can point to
the graves of those who perish this
winter and say to their slaves, If you

Power of the Money Trust.
Let no one imagine that the fight for
a currency to be issued by the G overn
ment direct, will be an easy one. This
is what the New York Tribune said
some years ago, before the first resist
ance against the money trust was biok
en: "The time is near when they (the
banks) will feel themselves compelled
to act strongly. Meanwhile a very good
thing has been done. The machinery is
now furnished by which in an emerg
ency the financial corporations of the
East can act together at a single day's
notice with such a power that no act of
Congiess can overcome or resist their
A '-good thing," indeed to have an or
ganization of a few private citizens in

great power of the money trust, it also

erties of the people are to be preserved.

Mrs. Rastall, president of Kansas W.
C X. U. speaks thus concerning the
working of prohibition in that state.
Arm yourselves with facts to meet
the ehargevS already asserted that Kan
sas is suffering financially because of
the prohibitory law and its burdens and
the taxes imposed as a result, which are
States revenue collected in Kansas last
largely increased. Can these things be
disproved? Certainly, and from official
documents. The state tax in 18S8 was
was (U mills; 111 1S88, 4 4-10 mills.
There has been a slight increase in tax
es for all purposes, but it is well to bear
111 mind the reckless voting of bonds
interest-bearing bonds which has been
carried to such excess that legislation
was sought to limit the liberty of the
people in the respect, and rob them of
the right to run into debt. .Notwith
standing these municipal bonds, rail
road bonds, bridge bonds, school bonds,
etc. the total increse in tax rates is but
ten cents on $100, from $3.60 in 1879 to
So.70 in 1888. Kansas has grown
wealthy under prohibition. Property
values have increased under prohibition
about eighteen and three-quarter mil
lions annually, while the increase in
population has been 85,307 annually, or
a total increase in population of more
than a half million of people, and a to
tal increase in values of nearly $lo(),
000,0001 We have 1.591 more school
houses than we had four years ago, and
1,969 more teachers. The school popu
lation has increased in four years by the
addition of 120,760 children. We have
more than doubled the mileage of our
railroads within four of the eight years
since prohibition was engrafted upon
the organic law. The amount of United
year was only $183,432, while Neb
raska, with less population, paid $2,248,
624." AV'e believe it is vital' to the temper
ance leform that the principle of prohi
bition be made the dominant issue in
American politics. We therefore give
ur approval to that party only which
declares in its platform for prohibition
in State and Nation, and stands in ac
tion for its application to law.
The above is the "partisan" resolu
