THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLeT
Resolutions of Phelps Co. Alliance.
Whereas, We believe transportation
rates to be quadruple what they ought
to be, and that the rate of interest
charged by the money loaners is usur
Whereas, the existing laws either in
their form or in their execution have
failed in the past to redress any of these
grievances or grant relief; therefore be
Resolved, That we the Phelps County
Alliance request our State Alliance or
the members of the executive board to
devise some means whereby the Subor
dinate Alliances may put their forces
to work so as to elect executive officers
and members of the legislature from
the farming class and from among
those whose antecedents show them to
be in entire sympathy with farming in
terests. That we are in favor of government
ownership of railroads operated at cost
That we are in favor of a full legal
tender paper currency issued direct to
the people on lauded security at one
per cent per annum.
That we favor a reduction of taxes to
reduce the surplus in the county, state
and national treasury, instead of by
reckless and extravagant appropria
tions, as is being done by the present
That we, the farmers of Phelps Co.
Alliance, will not support a man for
otlice who in our judgment does not
favor a radical reduction in transporta
tion rates, interest on money, salaries
of officers, and economy in expenditure
of the public mone'.
That we, the farmers of Phelps coun
ty, are in favor of reforming the pres
ent obnoxious, unequal and unjust sys
tem of tariff laws.
That we are in favor of abolishing the
present state board of transportation.
That in our belief the farmers of this
state, who are the majority, will never
be fairly represented in our govern
ment until the offices of governor and
congressman be tilled by men elected
from among themselves.
The Work in Polk Co.
Osceola, Neb., Mar. 25, 1890.
Editor Alliance: It was decided at
our last meeting to hold an open meet
ing of the next county Alliance, to which
every one interested in the farmers'
movement, especially ladies, was invited.
In the meantime, the committee on ar
rangements had secured the services of
Prof. 1J. F. Pratt and wife of Clarks,
It jerrick Co. Each delivered such an
address in behalf of the farmers and
their work as had not been listened to
for many a day. Had we more such
workers in the farmers' cause the time
when the money power ceased to con
trol the legislature would indeed be
Sister Pratt, formerly Miss Julia Gar-r-etsou,
in the days of the granger was
lecturer for the State Grange of Iowa
and Ohio. She traveled in the interest
of that order through almost every coun
ty in those states. Since the Grange
has passed away her labors have been
coniined to the farm. But now that the
Alliance has arisen to take the place of
the Grange she has again enlisted in
this great reform movement.
The court house was filled to over
(lowing, with a large attendance of la
dies from all portions of the country.
I am glad that the women of Nebraska
are gitting interested in this great work.
The time has come when we must lay
aside all party affiliations, and work
and vote for jour own interests. The
old parties that control our nation to
day are ouy shadows of their former
It is as sister Pratt said, "The farmers
must organise, must cling together like
a baud of brothers; must educate;
must vote to their own interest, else
they are lost."
The farmers of Polk county are begin
ning to feel their need of a Savior, and
are coming manfully to the rescue.
This fall there will be such a change in
lolities as will astonish the old line of
C. D. Stonee,
Sec. Co. Alliance.
Resolutions From Star Alliance, No. 109.5.
Resolved, That in our judgment the
time has come to the farmers of Ne
braska for an immediate, decided and
letermined effort to secure lower rail
road freight rates for our produce, and
that to this end we will from time to
time both as members of the Farmers'
Alliance and as individuals, by petitions
and private letter urge our state officials
especially our railroad commissioners
to secure a reasonable reduction in
Resolved, That we hereby give notice
that we will not support any man to rep
resent us in the legislature who does not
only pledge himself to favor such legis
lation and only such,by speech and vote
as will secure for us reasonable freight
rates, and whose antecedents prove him
both strong and honest enough to carry
out such a pledge; and further
Resolved, That the secretary send a
copy of these resolutions to The Alli
ance for publication, also to the com
missioners and to the governor.

Meeting of Cass County Alliance.
Editor Alliance: The Cass County
Farmers' Alliance held its fifteenth
quarterly session at Mauley, March 22,
1890. Alliatices were well represented
and reports encouraging. Large acces
sions have been made and all are in
good working order. Resolutions were
adopted condemnatory of the state
board of transportation and in com
mendation of Attorney-General Leese;
also against extending time of payment
to the government of the indebtedness
of the Union Pacific railroad. Short
addresses right to the point were made
ly J. Clarke, D. D. Andrus, J. Chap
man, H. Strickland, D. S. Halverstadt,
a,. e. uiibert and others. Avery profit
aDie ana interesting session was en-
ioved and all went awav full of hone
and courage, determined in all things
to stand together until the great prin
ciples oi the Alliance shall triumph.

Resolutions of Crounse Alliance.
Crounse, Neb., March, 24, 1890.
At a regular meeting of the Crounce
Alliance, Saturday evening, March 22,
the following report of the committee
on resolutions was accepted by a unan
Inasmuch as the present freight rates
of 20 cts per cwt. on corn from Lincoln
to Chicago is in excess of the rate
chanred previous to
the interstate law.
the rebate system was in
in vogue; said rates being about double
that between Chicago and New York
for like distance, and all this notwith
standing that the amount to be carried
is much greater than when the rate
was less; therefore
Resolved, That Alliance No. 1010, of
Crounse, Lancaster county, Nebraska,
regards the action of our board of
transportation in accepting a ten per
cent reduction on freight rates as un
satisfactory, unwise, impolite; and
while seemingly an effort on their part
in the interest of the people, is in reali
ty of no benefit and is liable to be
looked upon as a mere move on the po
litical chess board, and as such merits
Resolved, That we commend the un
tiring efforts of Attorney-General
Leese to procure Iowa rates for the cit
izens of Nebraska, and that we con
demn the cowardly evasion of the ma
jority of said board whereby said ef
forts are defeated.

An Open Letter From Hamilton County.
If. S. Garber, Secretary State Board of
Transportation, Lincoln, Xeb.
Dear Sir: We would say in answer
to your letter replying to the resolu
tions passed by the Hamilton County
Alliance on Feb. 8th, that we are aware
of the fact that the state board of trans
portation cannot control freight rates
beyond the state line, but they have
control of the local rates of freight in
the state; and if they were to demand a
reasonable reduction from the existing
rates to Chicago, of at least 10 cents per
hundred pounds, and an equal reduc
tion to other points, and the It. It. Cos.
would refuse to grant these requests,
the state board could use extreme
measures to compel them to comply
with their request.
In your letter you state plainly that it
is the sworn duty of the board to fix
rates on a reasonable basis; why do they
not do it? Why do they not estimate
the value of the railroads and compel
the lines to at least charge no more than
the Iowa tariff on local rates.
We do not think that our Alliance
has any apologies to make; we think
this letter states plainly what we want,
and Ave insist that you demand a re
duction of not less than 10 cents per
hundred pounds based on the existing
rates to Chicago, and if not complied
with, that you immediately take, action
on local rates, etc.
M. II. Severy,
Valentine Horn, Secretary.
Words of Cheer From Vice-Pres. Horn;
Phillips, Neb., March 23, 1890.
Mr. Editor: As I have been work
ing in the interest of the Alliance since
it was first organized and feel very
much interested in the work, thought I
would write and let you know how it
is thriving in this vicinity. We are do
ing most all the shipping in this dis
trict, and are ordering a great many
supplies, principally groceries, from
headquarters. We hava no elevator
here yet, but are managing very nicely
until we get a better start. I have
traveled in quite a number of counties
organizing and visiting Alliances, and
found all that were organized in good
running order, and all seem to be work
ing in earnest.
A great many have asked me where
they would get their farming imple
ments, and the general agent's name;
so will you please have the full particu
lars published in next week's paper if
I take your paper and think every
farmer should, as it is a great helper in
building up and pushing this work for
ward. I trust the farmers will continue
to work with zeal, united heart and
hand, and the time will soon be here
when the farmers will not be the down
trodden, but will be equal to all classes
ot industry throughout this nation.
Grand Meeting in Saunders County.
The Saunders County Alliance met at
Wahoo, March 15th. Twenty-fire Alli
ances were represented by 100 delegates.
There was a very enthusiastic feeling
among all the members to advance the
cause of the Alliance. Considerable
time was devoted to discussing the lo
cal questions with the best of feeling.
Our organizations are being severely
felt by home combinations which will
result in benefit to all members and la
boring men of our county. In the af
ternoon and evening Hon. Trevilhck
addressed an audience of about 700
armers and labores. He spoke for
bur hours and told us more about the
Alliance than a few of us knew. We
would reccomend him to any County
Alliance that is in need of light.

Brother Higgins of Furnas County Sends
Cambridge, Neb., March 28, 1890.
Editor Alliance : The good work
is going grandly on in Furnas county;
we are thoroughly organized, and the
farmers seem resolute and determined.
From all indications we will break the
charm, and for once be represented in
the legislature instead of being a corpo
rate tool there as heretofore. We in
close you a copy of resolutions adopted
by our Alliance that you may see that
we are alive, but not for publication
as it is usually the best time to catch a
thief when it is dark. Will report pro
gress in the future. Strike boldly and
fearlessly for the right. We are with
you through it all.

tribution shall reach only those persons
interested in that culture, and who

W. C. T. U. COLUMN.
Edited by Mrs. S. C. O. Upton, of Lincoln,
Neb., of the Nebraska Woman's Christian
The editor of The Alliance places the re
sponsibility of this column in the care of the
Prohibition in The Pulpit.
The "watchmen on the walls" of the
modern zion, or in other words, the min
isters are waking up to the contest com
ing on in our state beween the saloon
power and those who desire to see the
On Sunday, March 23d, several ser
mons on the subject of prohibition were
delivered in Lincoln.' Chancellor Creigh
ton spoke on the subject in East Lincoln
to a large and interested audience. At
Grace M. E. church, on the same even
ing Presiding Elder Miller gave a forci
ble sermon on the same subject, and
Rev. Stein of the St. Paul M. E. church
gave one of the series of six sermons in
which he has discussed the subject ex
haustively. Rev. Bradt of the 2d Presbyterian
church has also been treating the ques
tion in his pulpit. All these pastors, we
are informed, have had large and sym
pathetic audiences and have given no
uncertain sound concerning the duty of
christian men at this time in regard to
the liquor crime.
As no organization is so wide-spread,
or has the ear of the people like the
church, it means much for the prohibi
tion cause, that the church is thus alive
to the duty of the hour.
Radical reformers have been thunder
ing in the ears of the church that it must
take its stand for prohibition, and to
day the church realizes that it must "do
With all the activity of evangelists,
endeavor societies ami Sabbath schools,
the fact is notorious that the saloon is
destroying men faster than all these
agencies can save them, and the wise
ones have concluded that christian poli
tics is one of the crying needs of the
hour, that christian sentiment on this
subject needs to be crystallized into
forms of law.
The thirty-eight saloons of Lincoln,
stand with open doors at all hours of
the day and much of the night, are far
too powerful opponents of purity, tem
perance and Godliness for any church
to be mitral in regard to them. We
have a right to expect this action of the
church, yet it is a matter of rejoicing
that it is thus meeting expectation.
Since the Chancellor of the Wesleyan
University, the presiding elder of the
district, and the pastor of one of the
largest churches in the state have taken
such an uncompromising stand for the
prohibitory amendment we may reason
ably expect from every A'illage and
school house where people meet to wor
ship God throughout this state, shall be
heard from the sacred desk truths drawn
from texts like these: "Woe to him
that buildeth a town of blood, and es
tablisheth a city by iniquity."
"Woe unto them which justify the
wicked for a reward." And behind the
pulpits stand a multitude of devout
souls whose feeling and language Isaiah
thus expresses: Cry aloud, spare not,
lift up thy voice like a trumpet and show
my people their transgression.
What the Prohibitory Amendment Means.
The State Commitee calls attention
to the two amendments to our state
constitution that are to be voted on the
4th day of November next.
The Prohibitory Amendment provides
as follows, viz:
'The manufacture, sale and keeping for
sale of intoxicating liquors as a beverage
are forever prohibited in this state, and the
Legislature shall provide by laic for the en
forcement of this provision. "
The license Amendment provides as
''The manufacture, sale and keeping for
sale of intoxicating liquors as a beverage
shall be licensed and regulated by lair. "
To carry either of these Amendments
requires a majority of all the votes cast
at said election. " That is if there are
two hundred thousand votes cast in this
state next fall, it will take one hundred
thousand and one votes to carry either
amendment. A governor may be elect
ed by plurality of votes, but the amend
ment can be carried only by a majority
of all the votes cast.
Attention is also called to the License
Amendment as a mandatqry provision,
and if carried will repeal the Slocumb
law with its high license and local op
tion features, and enable the traffic to
open a saloon in every town in the state.
It cau do this though the sentiment and
vote of the town be unqualifiedly and
unanimously against the saloon, and
when that saloon is established it may
not be required to pay a license of over
$100 or even less.
In fact the Legislature would not have
the right to fix a license fee that would
be prohibitory in its character, for that
would conflict with the constitutional
provision. Let the voters of Nebraska
ponder these truths and be ready to des
troy the legal power of the saloons by
C. E. Bentley. Ch'n.
The State Teacher's Association which
met in Lincoln last week was a very
successful and profitable meeting. They
passed a resolution declaring that they
favored the pending prohibitory amend
ment, and believed its passage would
favorably effect the edcational interests
of the state.

The Work in Colorado.
We haverecievedan interesting letter
from our old friend Hon.P. B. Reynolds
of Holyoke, Col., formerly of Aurora in
this state. Bro. Reynolds informs us
that "the Alliance is on a big boom" in
his vicinity, and he applies to our State
Agency for assistance in the way of
trade in implements, etc. We copy the
following from the correspondence of
the Holyoke Herald, writen by Mrs. Rey
nolds, which shows that she is,as bf old,
on the side of the farmer in his struggle;
We respectfully beg1 leave to differ from the
Herald regarding1 the true objects and aims of
the Farmers' Alliance, having- seen in other
states to much of its workings and practical
advantage to the tiller of the soil. While it
may be true that some connected with the or
ganization were more imbued with the ambi
tion for official preferment than a fraternal
sympathy with the misfortunes of oibers.and
what Order is free from these ambitious bar
nacles, yet we can see no impropriety in agri
culturalists banding together for mutual pro
tection, such as exists in nearly all other
branches of labor and trade. And we believe
the records prove that this organization,whose
cardinal tenets require non-interference with
politics or religion, is doing more to-day in the
way of demanding equitable rates on all our
railroads, discountenancing combines and
trusts, exposing swindling schemes.and many
other impositions upon a long suffering public,
than any other extant, and should recieve the
hearty encouragement of all lovers of fair
dealing among men. L. M. It.
Extract of Miss Willard's "Glimpse of
We give the following extract from
the above delightful book. It will be
seen that the style is pure as well as
sprightly and vivacious. It is one of the
most readable household books issued
for many years. H. J. Smith & Co.,
That summer we had a new girl,
Margaret Ryan by name, for Bridget
wanted rest. She was but eighteen
years old, and great company for Mary
and me. She was true and kind, very
intelligent, and we became very much
attached to her, gave her piano lessons,
read aloud to her while she was at
her work, and never learned
anything from her that was not
good. So our memories of "Margie"
were always pleasant. Mother was so
considerate of her helpers that she sel
dom changed, but in our twelve years
on the farm we had perhaps thirty or
more men and women with us at differ
ent times. Some from Ireland, others
from England, and a few from America,
while of Germans and Norwegians there
was a large representation. But of
Catholic or Protestant, Lutheran or Me
thodist, we found good hearts in all, and
made common cause with every one,
teaching them English, giving them
writing lessons, and never recieving
anything but loyalty and kindness in re
turn. If the foreign population of this
country was properly represnted at For
est Home, it is neither drunken, im
moral nor irreligious, but warmly re-!
sponds to every helpful word and deed,

will but be true to themselves and these
In the loneliness of mother's absence
I began to write more than ever, though
I had kept a journal since I was twelve
years old. Climbing to my high perch
in the old oak tree I would write down
the day's proceedings, scribble sketches
and verses, and I even began a novel
entitled "Rupert Melville and his Com
rades: A storyoof Adventure." Mary,
too, kept a journal, and competed for a
prize in the "Children's Column" in the
Prairie Farmer. I tried for the premium
offered for the best poem at the county
Fair, but it was won by Mrs. E. S. Kel-
log, the Janesville poet, lhis did not,
however, discourage me at all; I wrote
all the harder, took my essays to Mrs.
Hodsre, who had fine taste and was an
uncommonly good writer nerseii. ana
made up my mind that "write I could
and should and would."
My novel was a standing joke in the
family. I worked at it "off and on,"but
chiefly the former. I had so many char
acters that Oliver said "for the life of
him he didn't see how I expected to get
them all decently killed off inside of a
thousand pages." Every day when my
resrular chores about the house were
done, which took only an hour or two,
I got at work and insisted on doing at
least one page, from Avhich it is plain
that I had no great inspiration in my
undertaking. Perhaps no body appre
ciated it more than Lizzie Howley, a
bright young dressmaker from Janes
ville. to whom I was wont to read each
chanter aloud, as fast as it was written.
Sometimes since.I have wondered if the
main reason why Lizzie listened so duti
fully was not that she had no choice in
the matter; there was the reader and
h ere was the story, and the busy needle
woman could not tret away.
Perhaps father's fitting us out with
huntinar implements during mother's ab
sence had something to do with the writ
ing of this story. It is more likely how-
ever, that the lrrepressioie spirit oi nis
two daughters drove him to allowing
them to hunt.for we seemetl to have tie
veloned a passion in that direction
stronger than ever before, about those
davs. Especially was this true of me.
