THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE.
A Correct Doctrine.
RrsiivirxK, .Neb., April 21, '90.
Editor Allianck: In your issue of
April 11), appears an editorial under the
Caption, "The Truth Beginning to be
Recognized." And this statement is
rc'de with particular reference to the
present attitude of certain papers on
the money question; an extract being
given from the Omaha Herald preceded
by similar quotations from the Omaha
Republican in former issues of The
Alliance. Now, while I am glad to
welcome any additions to the ranks of
financial reformers I cannot so willingly
admit that papers so prominent, so well
informed and sagacious as are said pa
pers have just begun to "recognize" the
"truth" about the evils of "contraction."
Evidently those papers are "beginning"
to "recognize the truth" that if they
would retain the farmer's patronage
they must appear to be recent converts to
the only correct financial doctrine which
3'ou have so long, so earnestly and hon
estly been proclaiming from the house
tops, and on all appropriate occasions,
and admit what they long, long ago
"recognized" as the "truth", about this
very essential matter.
I think it more proper, allow me to
say, that said papers and many more of
the same class who depend for their
support and continued existence on
their rural readers, be given more cred
it for sagacity than honesty in the mat

extremely critical time. None but
political fools could fail to "recognize"
the truths above alluded to years ago,
and the editors of said papers do not
nor never did belong to that class. To
make so radical and sudden a change
on this all-important of public questions
is to be regarded rather as an evidence
of good generalship, and that while
they are really following they may there

We have Loth kinds of speakers, and
-care should be taken to distinguish
between them. Men and papers forced
by circumstances or otherwise to be
trufriful and useful may render valuable
service to a good cause, but it is better,
wi-?er anil safer to trust in responsible
positions only such as are known to
have promptly recognized and admitted
the truth, and perchance labored at
great disadvantage and loss, but per
sistently, to make it popular and effi

"A Little Nonsense Now and Then,"
Hello! Bro. Farmers, Knight3 and
hard working business men.
We feel good,, as the boy said when
he had filled himself with watermelon
sliced up with his new knife. Why do
I feel good? Well, the State Alliance
met on the 7th of Jan. On the 13th Gov.
Thayer asked the railroad kings to re
duce the rates on corn. The 24th he com
manded the kings out side of Nebraska
to reduce the rates to Chicago when his
authority only reached as far as Omaha.
The big State Alliance gave him the big
head. He even thought, he was king
J. Gould, and that he owned all the
roads between here and Chicago.
Now comes Pres. Adams ot the U. P.
and favors a 50 per cent reduction of the
corn rate in Nebraska. This reduction
comes too late to help the farmers this
year. But it helps the speculators and
establishes a precedent.
We sent a wagon load of petitions to
Congress, and now Senators Manderson
and Paddock are flopping around like a
couple of superanuated roosters with
their heads off, trying to find out how
to do as the petitions command.
We hear of politicians great and small
going to Washington to Avine and dine
and get instructions from the kings how
to circumvent the Farmers' Alliance.
We feel good because the Alliance and
Knights have caused all this cackling
among the boss political geese.
Brothers, this shows us our strength
when organized. If we all stick to
gether, work together, vote together,
we shall get just what we demand.
We shall have money from Uncle Sam
at 2 per cent a year. We shall have our
freight carried at cost by. government
railroads. We can make of this world
a paradise fit for the residence of the
gods. To accomplish this we must lay
aside the old political parties. .We
must put upon the shelf the present gov
ernment pap suckers. W e must tell the
worn out political hacks we have no use
for them. We must go to the front with
a new party and new men to earrjrout
our new measures. Every county has
talentthat would grace any position with
in our gift.
We might better hare new men and
new measures writh some mistakes than
a lot of dead conservatives that will not
make an effort to improve our condi
tion. What shall we name the new party?
Hold on there dont all ask that question
at once (Now brothers scratch your
heads.) We do not expect to have our
way about it, but we would call it the
When this new party is born we must
not wrap it in swadling clothes or allow
it to creep. We must start it on the
jump for the White House.
In the heat of political strife wo must
not compromise our principles with our
enemies. But remember the National
party is in favor of a national money
issued direct to the people at 2 per cent
a year. That the national party is 111 fa
vor of national ownership of all railroads
with passenger and freight rates fur
nished to the people at cost. That the
National party is opposed to the alien
ownership of the land.
When the new party wins and these
principles are carried out in every detail,
as they surely will be if Ave do our duty,
our grand children will stand some show
of having homes of their own and may
feel better than the boy out side of his

A Stirring Letter From Red Willow Co.
Editor Farmers' Alliance- I have
been reading your friendly and valuable
paper, with which I am well pleased.
I believe you truly have the interest of
the laboring class of people at heart.and
know that you have their sympathy,
that you have their sympathy

this only helps to explain the helpless
and hopeless condition to which we are
being reduced by the leaders of the two
old parties that are controlled by and run
in the interests of monopoly. Many per
sons are advocating working through
one of them to get representation Avhich
I think would mean another defeat for
us. from the fact that they are nearly all
monopoly men. The facts are that mo
noploy has everything that it can get so
as to make control certain. And in this
(Red Willow) county last year they saw
to it that no Alliance man was a dele
gate to the county convention if they
could help it. And so far as I know
they did help it. In the principal towns
some one had the names ot persons
printed on a ticket as delegates, and a
man had to vote for those parties as
delegates or they had to bolt. And it
seems to me that the sooner we bolt the
better it will be for us. And as far as I
know the majority of the members are
in favor of a Labor or an Antimonopoly
party as shall be agreed upon by the
different labor organizations 01 the
United States. I think that I am speak
ine the sentiment of a majority of the
members of the Alliance when I say that
if we ever get representation it must be
by a union of the producers into a poli
tical party. And 1 think that the mi
nonty should yield to the majority; lor
as long as they can keep us divided they
can defeat us. But whenever we march
to the primaries, conventions and polls
as one man tor the liberties which by
right are ours, the victory will then be
ours. Ana this must be done soon or
the victory will belong to another. A
standing army will keep us in subjection.

A Pure Eqalization is What We Want.
Editor Alliance: We take your
paper and think it a good paper, and
wish every farmer would take it and do
all they could to hold up the Alliance
and get their country equalized as
quick as possible. . We read the differ
ence in congressionals. It seems that
the congressman has but little sympa
thy for the poor people. You see bills
pass for old soldiers and war widows
to draw $8 a month, and some general's
widow or daughter to draw from $75 to
$100 a month, and $2,000 a year. Is
there anv eoualitv in anv such business?
If a war widow can live on $8 a month
why can't a general's widow live on the
same? What do they expect the gen
eral's widows to do with all their mon
ey? Here is a point I look at. Is a
general's wife or ajpresident's any better
than a soldier's wife or a farmer's wife?
No they are not, and I say a general of
war let his widow draw pension equal
with the war widow, the general's wid
ow's husband is not any dearer or near
er to her than the husband 01 a war
widow, so let them fare alike. Here is
another point I look at. Why is a pres
ident called a big man? It is because
he is paid big money! Now I want to
know if a president's family is any bet
ter than a farmer's family? I don't
think' that a president's widow has any
better right to government money than
a farmer's widow. The president is
paid a big salary to do all he can for
his government, and the farmers are
doing all they can for their govern
ment. He can see he is making a for
tune a year and his family living in
luxury. It don't entitle their widows
to government money any more than a
farmer's widow that raises chickens and
sells a bit of cream for a living.
Farmers for Gods sake look at all
these things, and don't make slaves out
of one to keep a flirt out of another.
Do you think our Heavenly Father will
ornament a chair and set a president's
widow or general's widow above a far
mer's widow? No, never! So let them
all fare on this earth alike.
We see a bill in congress appropriat
ing $25,000 for a monnment for Presi
dent Harrison's grand-father. Is Presi
dent Harrison's grand-father any bet
ter than anybody else's grand-father.
If President Harrison wants a monu
ment to his grand-father let him put it
there and save $25,000 to pay on the
government debt in place of making a
debt. A good president is a good
thing, but they are well enough paid
without keeping generations of them at
the expense of the government. This
as my proposition. Yours truly,
Mrs. T. J.

Resolutions from Barada Alliance.
Barada, Richardson Co., Apr. 22.
The Farmer's Alliance at Barada is
"nourishing like a green bay tree," and
is increasing rapidly at each meeting in
numerical strength as well as in the
kuowlege of the fact that farmers can
as effectively organize as other trades
and labor organizations. At these meet
ings questions that especially pertain to
their interests are freely and intelligent
ly discussed. The signs are hopeful
that the education of the farmer is in
the right direction. We are beginning
to realize at last that we must do some
thing for our own relief, and one of our
first important duties will be to relieve
from their arduous duties the illustrious
triumvirate who has so perseveringly
from time to time refused to give us re
lief from railroad extortions. At our
earliest convenience, gentlemen, we

The editor of The Alliance places the re

No one pays his taxes with any high
degree of pleasure, since about all the
pleasure he can get out of it is in think
ing as he pockets his receipt, that he
will not have to pay it over again for
at least a year. The harder men toil
for a living the harderit is to pay taxes.
So it comes to pass that farmers are
sensitive to any measure that is likely
to make their taxes higher. Knowing
this, you will see wrhy the sharp, un
principled liquor manager whose words
are printed below, says: -'If you work
the farmers on the tax question you
catch them every time."
It is a matter for thankfulness that
Nebraska farmers think and read and
so cannot be "caught' in as flimsy a net
as those of states haying a greater per
centage of illiteracy.
Ihe money that a farmer pays over a
bar for drinks will not pay his taxes;
the saloon license money pays expenses

student of social and economic ques
tions, and he says: "Prohibition will
effect an important reduction of taxes."
Further he says that twenty-three years
of prohibition in Maine has effected an
important reduction of taxes. Let
every man stop and inquire how much
the liquor traffic has taxed him in a
year and see if he does not conclude
that it has cost more than it has paid.
Men lose by the traffic who never drink
liquor. Employes will be absent or
will slight their work, runaways hap
pen that make expenses. Men drink,
lose positions and are unable to pay
their debts; and so, indirectly we are
taxed that the liquor trade may flour

criminals may be tried, its insane and

fattening upon every legitimate trade
and occupation and yielding nothing
and paying nothing in return. If it
pays taxes it is the tax on property
stolen from the homes of the people,

press are going to be able to "catch"
the farmers and make them believe
otherwise, especially when we read that
fifty Farmers' Alliances in one county
are in favor of prohibition.

on your side?
"hy, we bought them by paying
down so much cash. I visited the edi
tors in person or had some good man
to do so. and arranged to pay each pa
per for its support a certain amount of
money. Throughout the state we paid
weekfy papers from $50 to $500 to pub
lish such matter as we might furnish,
either news or editorial, but the city
daily papers we had to pay from $1,000
to $4,000, which latter amount was paid
to the Times of this city. Other papers
we could not buy straight out, conse
auentlv we had to pay from 30 to 60
cents per line for all matter published
for us according to the circulation and
the ability of the paper. We paid the
Ledger 40 cents per line and the Record
we paid 60 cents per line, though it did
some good work for us for nothing. It
was understood w ith most all of the pa
pers that we would furnish the matter,
and so we employed a man to write for
us and prepare articles for publication
which would be furnished to the pa
pers to be printed as news or editorial
matter, as we might direct. The most
eff ective matter we could get up in the
influencing of votes was, that prohibi
tion did not prohibit, and the revenue,
taxation, and how prohibition would
hurt the farmers. We would have these
articles printed in different papers and
then buy thousands of copies of the
paper and send them to all the farmers.
