THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE.
The Banking Business.
Editor Alliance: Trior to 1860 in
the palmy days of the old state and pri
vate banks, when the people were
obliged to use the bills of those banks
to make their exchanges, when gold
and silver was the only available legal
tender, those having debts to pay had
to exchange their bank bills for gold
and silver, and pay the banker from
two to five per cent to get a legal ten
The people dared not hold the bills
of those banks over night, for the next
day they might be entirely worthless.
In those days the bankers exchanged
their notes (bank bills) for the notes of
business men and farmers, and for
mortgages on all classes -of property.
Then the bankers could close the doors
of their banks, refuse to redeem their
bank bills (that is refuse to pay their
notes.) In other words the bankers
could repudiate their debts to the peo
ple at pleasure. At the same time they
could foreclose the mortgages, they
could collect the notes they held against
the people, and oblige the debtors to
pay in gold and silver or lose their
These wild cat bankers (so-called) ex
changed their notes for gold and silver
and other property of all kinds, and
then refused to pay their debts.
These worse than highway robbers,
these cormorants without conscience,
without shame, these devils incarnate
clothed in cat's fur, these double-dyed
hypocrites, professing everything good,
were looked upon in their day by many
as the great financiers of the country.
These bankers could increase their
debts, that is increase their bank bill
circulation, at pleasure. These bankers
could repudiate their debts, that is sus
pend specie payment at pleasure on
their bank bills. By contracting and
expanding the bank bill circulation of
the country they could set the price on
every day's labor, on all property. By
refusing to redeem their bank bills
they could at any time bring on a finan
Our present banking system is lauded
to the skies as perfection perfected, as
the best banking system the world
has ever seen, because it is an improve
ment on the old wild cat laws. A few
hair-brained innocents, educated by
the continual praise of the bankers
themselves, seem to think.it impossible
to improve on the system.
The national banks are better than
the old banks because the government
guarantees the redemption of the na
tional bank bills. In nearly eveiy other
respect they are the old wild cat banks
perfected by age and experience.
The success of the bankers's business
depends in a great measure cn this
guarantee of the government. The
bankers' business tub is kept in an up
right and honorable position by govern
ment inspection, while every other
business tub in the country stands on
its own bottom. We have many rea
sons to feel proud of the other business
men of the country. They are contin
ually experimenting, inventing, adopt
ing and perfecting new methods. Their
enterprise is boundless. Their energy
surmounts every difficulty. Their very
activity begets in them a sturdy man
hood, a self-reliant, independent dispo
sition that would scorn a gift even from
a father. They never beg for favors.
If they use, the property of others they
pay for its use. If they run in debt
they, pay interest on their debts, and
thus decrease their profits. They pay
their taxes without a kick. They
laugh at their failures, pocket their
losses, and push onward up the heights
of their ambition.
The banker, Oh! Where is He?
Wrapped in' an impenetrable shell of
conservatism, without enterprise. With
the exception of a few improvements
the other business men and the govern
ment have hired him to adopt, he is
using tne same Dusmess methods he
. used over a hundred years ago. To
suggest to him any improvement is like
shaking a red rag in the face of a bull.
While every other business man is abla
to walk alone, the national banker is a
national baby in the arms of Uncle
Sam. The baby comes before congress
at nearly every session for some nan.
It wants profits legislated direct into
its pockets. It does not want to pay
one per cent profit for the use of the
bank bills it loans to the other business
men at 10 per cent. It accepts without
a twinge of conscience all the munifi
cent gifts it can dog from its father by
continually barking and whiningpuppy
like at his heels.
In the business wOrld the banker is
the only coward. He is never known
to risk a dollar. His scheme is to per
suade ether men to assume all risks, in
sure him against loss, and guarantee
him his cent per cent. In time of
war his is the only capital that seeks a
The business the banker is engaged
in seems to have dwarfed his manhood,
seared his conscience, and belittled his
ideas of the obligations he is under to
the business men of the country. With
out the brains, muscle, and enterprise
they use in their affairs,, what would the
banker's business be worth to him?
!Not a cent. The banker's business can
not go alone. The banker is a national
cripple firmly seated astride the necks
of the other business men. Every other
business man in the country has to
share his profits with the banker. The
bank bill3 represent a -debt the banks
owe the government. The deposits the
banks hold represent - what the banks
owe the people. In other words the
bankers draw interest on their debts.
The more they get in debt the greater
The banking business as now con
ducted will be the laughing stock of the
future historian. ' That the people of
this age have tolerated the robber sys
tem for so many ?. years will be the
greatest wonder that is to surprise the
coming generation of men.
John Stebbins, Shelton.
Minden, Neb., May 19, 1890.
Editor Alliance: Ir your issue of
the 17th we see a call for a peoples' in
dependent convention to be held some
time in the near future. Attached to
said call is a declaration of principles
in which the financial system, land mo
nopoly, the present railroad system,
system of taxation both state and na
tional, and so forth, and the evils re
sultant from these systems are sought
to be remedied, jnow this is all very
well; those things should each and
every one receive the careful attention
of every nonest toning citizen oi our
state and nation. But the subject
which is lar above, and is of more mo
ment to the people of Nebraska and the
nation to-day is not even whispered.
We refer to the whisky traffic. Now
Mr. Editor, we as members of the Alli
ance and as co-workers together in an
effort to throw off the shackfes that bind
us, feel constrained to speak out in no
uncertain sound on this greatest evil of
this or any age. jnow to begin, we are
all brothers. We are farmers banded
together to secure emancipation from
the evils we are burdened with We
do not want to do anything only that
which i3 for our interest as a class.
What is to the interest of one is to
the , interest of all. It cannot be
otherwise. The people of Nebraska
were asked to try high license.
The request was granted. It has
been on trial now for several years,
and it has failed to lessen the evils re
sulting from the drink, curse. Every
honest man must admit this fact. What
next? Constitutional prohibition The
fight is now on. The issue is, the home
against the saloon.
This cause seems to be studiously
avoided by your excellent paper. Now
the question is, can we as an organiza
tion of farmers remain silent on this
question? We think not. Let the ques
tion be agitated, and let the farmers of
Nebraska educate themselves on this
the greatest question that ever came be
fore this people. If it is to our interest
to let' the saloon go on in its work of
destruction, then let us so determine.
But, if on the other hand we find that
the interest and welfare of our people
demand the outlawing of the rum traf
fic, then we say let us fight to pulverize
the rum power.
t RANK TEMPLEK,
Gov. Todd on the Old Parties.
Union, Neb., May 22, 1890.
Editor Alliance: Dear Sir: Since
returning from Lincoln I have taken
the time to look carefully over the reso
lutions as adopted by the anti-monopo-
1 1.15 M T J! A.V.
ly repuDiican council, x uiseover uotn
ing that is very objectionable. But they
they did make a mistake by making the
rate question the only vital and import
ant question. Leaving the financial and
silver question entirely out of considera
tion. Thus leaving, in fact, the whole
question of the amount, kind and vol
ume to be regulated by bank, railroad
and money corporations.
The silver question at this time is of
vital importance. The republican party
is divided on the subject, therefore it
would seem the more necessary that the
state of Nebraska should speak in plain
terms. We must all admit that the B.
& M. R. company, also the U. P. have
committed unpardonable wrongs
against the people of Nebraska. But so
far as the Missouri Pacific is concerned
J. Gould & Co. have proved saints in
comparison. They have come into our
state, pushed their roads into our princi
pal cities and have drawn very slightly
on the public for subsidies, except in
some out of the way towns who have
voluntarily contributed to bring them.
Great fear seems to be entertained
less the republican party should die.
Was there ever anything lost to the
mass of the people by the death of an
old party? If so has not the gain over
weighed the loss. The whig party died.
The democratic party slept with their
eyes open twenty years. .Population
and wealth increased under "both these
old parties. The grand old parties
have both out lived their usefulness.
The people should reoiganize to accom
plish what they want. The greatest
wrongs that are suffered by the people
are committed in the congress of the
United States by the leaders of the two
great parties. The burning of our
greenback money and converting its
value into United States bonds, and the
demonetization of our silver dollar, neg
lecting and refusing to recognize silver
money the same as gold, are the crimes
and sins that can never be f oi gotten or
forgiven. The grand old party has
come to us with a faint, "Step into my
parlor, said the spider to the fly."

W. C. T. U. COLUMN.
Edited by Mrs. S. C. O. Upton, of 2136 R
Street. Lincoln, Neb., of the Nebraska Wom
an's Christian Temperance Union.
The editor of The Alliance places the re
sponsibility of this column in the care of the
- Money and Morals.
The Declaration of Principles ac
comoanviner the call for an Independ
ent People's Convention was interest
ing. Whenever it can be .successfully
shown that our system of finance, rail
road management or taxation trespass
upon the rights 01 any class to me,
lioerty and the pursuit of happiness, it
is ju3t and timely to seek the reform
of those systems.
Whenever parties tall under such cor
rupt eontrol that they are no longer ef
ficient instruments to carry out the
people's will, it becomes the people's
duty to create a new party to execute
their behests. But, as we noted the
fundamental principles named in the
popular call, and observed that the
money question is the only or, at least
the chief one dealt with, an inquiry
rose as to ho w the people's movement
is to affect the great moral question
now agitating our state
The people want to oe na 01 trusts
that rob them, of speculators that en
rich themselves at the expense of the
producers, but they need also to be rid
of that ehief corrupter of public morals,
the licensed liquor traffic. Is not the
decay of purity and honor among pub
lic men due largely to its influence?
Can we not help vrorking men to secure
a competence, and rear their families,
to be good citizens more by turning the
$500,000,000 which it is estimated that
they yearly spend in saloons into the
purchase of homes and home comforts,
than by any other one measure?
It is well to consider the material
welfare of the people; it is true that
virtue cannot flourish under adverse
material conditions; yet, money alone
will not remedy our eondition. We
need a higher moral tone, and the drink
that impoverishes, degrades and en
dangers us should receive its full share
of attention from reformers who have
at heart the people's welfare.
We hope and trust that when this
People's Convention meets to nominate
pure and honorable men for state offi
cers it will also nominate men who
stand upon a platform opposed to the
spoliation and robbery of the saloon
system, and are heartily committed, not
only to sound financial principles, but
to that principle of sound, morality
which forbids the selling of destructive
poisons as beverages.
Five Years of Prohibition.
Topeka, Kas., May 17. For the first
time in five years intoxicating liquors
are being sold openly in Topeka. An
agent for a leading Kansas City whole
sale house has opened up an "original
package" shop. On first sight the open
sale of intoxicants attracted many peo
ple to the "original package" shop and
the sidewalk in front of the place was
erowdedf all day. State Journal.
The above article is commended to
the notice of those who have thought
that prohibition did not prohibit.
The clashing of state and national
authority which it makes public will
, have to be speedily settled by some new
law 01 the question of national prohibi
tion is precipitated, and that is after all
the ultimate question to be decided by
prohibition patriots. Let the battle
come. Whether the struggle be to vote
saloons from village, state or nation,
the principle is the same.
The 'Original Package" Case.
The recent decision -of the supreme
court sf the United States permits the
importation of liquor into prohibition
states, and also permits the sale of such
liquors "in original packages" in viola
tion of the law of the state, the court
holding that to prohibit sales in this
form is unconstitutional, and a viola
tion of the interstate commerce laws.
To remedy this state of affairs two
bills have been introduced in congress.
Mrs. Ada M. Bittenbender, super
intendent of legislative work for the
National W. C. T. U. reports these bills
and recommends action as follows:
One bill introduced in the senate by
Hon. James F. Wilson of Iowa, and
favorably reported the 9th of April by
the committee on interstate commerce,
provides: , "
That any article of commerce, the
manufacture or sale of which is pro
hibited within any state by the laws
thereof, in the exercise of its police
powers, shall not be transported or con
veyed into such state from any other
State, Territory, District ot Columbia
or foreign country, by any railroad
company, express company, or other
common carrier; but this shall not be
held to prohibit the transportation of
such article of commerce as aforesaid
to persons in such state authorized by
the laws thereof to receive the same, or
through sueh states aforesaid prohibit
ing the sale or manufacture thereof to
any other state or territory in which
such manufacture or sale is not pro
hibited. The other bill introduced in the house
of representatives by Hon. I. S. Struble
of Iowa, and favorably reported the
24th of April by the select committee
on the Alcoholic Liquor Traffic, pro
vides: That from and after the passage of
this act it shall be unlawful for any per
son or persons, corporotion, or associa
tion of persons, to convey, carry, ship,
or transport intoxicating liquors of any
kind from State, Territory of the United
estates or Uistrict of Columbia, , to or in
to any other State or Territory of the
United States, contrary to and in viola
tion of the laws thereof.
Let there, then, be a general rally of
prohibition workers to the support of
these bills, until one, or , a substitute,
has been enacted into law. Let every
reader of this article, who favors such
a law, at once write to both of the sena
tors from his or her state, and to the

Letter to Uncle Sam by Jacob Beck.
, , No. 2.
Decatur, Neb., May 24, 1890. '
Dear Uncle Sam: According to
promise, I herewith submit for your
consideration a scheme for the promo
tion of the public welfare. That the
measure which I propose may be readi
ly understood by all, I shall formulate
them in a few short whereases and reso
lutions as follows:
Whereas, All men are created with
equal rights; and have, by virtue of
their existencein this world, an inalien
able right to all the land that is needful
tor a comfortable living and no more;
Whereas, Governments are ordained
to secure to men their inalienable rights;
Whereas, Agriculture is the base of all
other industries the foundation of in
dividual, state and national prosperi
ty, security and happiness;
Resolved, That the government of the
United States proceed to furnish im
proved homes for all her citizens who
desire them, and wish to live by culti
vating the soil. To this end she can
improve all her public lands that are
fit for farming, and parcel them out in
homesteads of suitable size. She can,
also, purchase lands of individuals and
corporations and make homes for her
citizens who desire them and need them
compelling them to sell a portion of
theirn large estates when it becomes
necessary for the public good.
Resolved, That to carry out the fore
going resolution, the government shall
issue an adequate amount of legal ten
der paper currency which shall be re
funded to her by homesteaders on these
lands; who shall be required to refund
at least one per cent per annum on the
cost of their homesteads until . the gov
ernment is reimbursed for fitting up the
same. A failure to pay the annual in
stallment due the government , shall
work a forfeiture of the homesteader's
claim but shall not debar him from
taking one elsewhere when all dues on
the forfeited claim are paid up
Resolved, That these homesteads shall
be transferable; but no person shall
ever be permitted to own at any one
time of life more than one hundred and
sixty acres of these lands.
There, Dear Uncle Sam, you have the
whole scheme in a nut-shell. I shall
briefly allude to a few of the blessings
which must flow from the inaugura
tion of measures so beneficent. The
scheme will give employment to all de
siring it." It will enable all the home
less poor to obtain good comfortable
homes of their own if they pay but one
per cent per annum on the cost of the
same it will put millions of money in
circulation, raise the price of labor and
produce, and enable the debtor class to
pay off their mortgages and get out of
debt. It will stimulate eve branch of
industry, develope the resources of the
country, add billions to her taxable
property, and enable the poorest of the
poor to become a freeholder.
I hope, dear Uncle, that you will care
fully consider this matter, and cause to
be printed in the Alliance the strong
est objection you can urge against the
plan I propose. Were I a member of
congress, I certainly should urge the
measure before that honorable body.
