VTHE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE.
Labor Demands an Answer.
Starvation in San Francisco !
Oh queen of the sunset coast,
Has thy harbor grown too shallow?
Has the Golden Gate been closed?
But what means this fearful message?
California, is this right?
Have thy fields refused their harvests?
Has the sun refused its light?
Favored home of the purple grape!
Oh, land of the yellow gold !
Have thy countless herds ceased feeding'
Thou granary of the world?
Has man refused to labor?
Has the miue refused the ore?
Are thy warehouses all empty?
Will thy gold buy bread no more?
A question more I ask you,
Ye " Sons of the Golden West;"
Is the rich man's larder empty?
Is his child with hunger pressed?
Say, whence comes their right to plenty?
Whence comes th6ir rich repast?
While those whose labor feeds them,
Now starve in the streets at last.
Are the brains of your statesman addled?
Has woman's heart grown cold?
Humanity crushed out of man.
By his mad'ning greed for gold ?
The sun shines warn!; the earth expands,
Yielding harvests rich and rare;
Yet Labor, though creating all,
To-day, has a paupers' fare.
Idle they; but not from choice
Idle, yet with willing hands ;
They roam your streets with hunger gaunt,
In ever increasing bands.
Paupers now are the toiling men;
Creators of wealth you hold.
And what are ye, who feast and see
Those starve who produced ycur
Ye perch too high, O statesmen blind !
Come down where the toilers moan;
Stand Want and Plenty side, by side,
Where Labor can have its own.
Justice'. Mercy! Meaningless words.
While cunning, and power, and greed
Mock at manhod, virtue aDd truth,
High Heaven, and the orphan's need.
Sons of Evil! Daughters of Self!
Ye blind to the good and true!
Justice spoc Its, Manhood is waking,
Judgment is waiting for you.

On Lack of ' Conscience as a Means of
From "Topics of the Time" in the Century
A little experience in life makes it
plain, that one element of what is called
"success "consists in a certain tougnness
of the conscience. By "success" we
mean, of course, worldly success under
the present conditions. We do not
mean the true and high success, the
conduct of one's life in all honesty, with
the rewards of a pare fame and the
better rewards of conscious clarity of
purpose, and fairness of action. We
mean that men of business who are try
ing to live up to an ideal are very apt
to find less scrupulous men passing
them at certain points, and sometimes
permanently outdoing them in the mere
race for wealth, from the fact that the
latter are less hampered at critical mo
ments by conscientious considerations.
It is true that "honesty is the best
policy" in the long run. and as a rule
even in ordinary business affairs; and
it is true that many men make a com
plete failure in life by disregarding this
maxim. It is true that honesty is one
of the forces of worldly success; it is
also true that dishonesty is one of the
forces of worldly success.
The honest reader will perhaps ask,
why this praise of dishonesty. But we
are not praising dishonesty; we do not
think it commendable in any way; on
the contrary, we think, just as the hon
est reader thinks, that it is in every way
condemnable and contemptible. We
are, however, stating a palpable and
provable fact namely, that in the pres
ent constitution of society a lack of con
science may be an important, even a
deciding, element of worldly success.
Th e point we are getting at is this
nameiy, mat it is easier to reap a cer
tain kind of worldly success without
conscience than with it; and that, there
fore, the conscienceless man who reaches
enormous wealth or hisrh worldlv posi
tion is not nearly so clever a fellow as
his admirers think he is and proudly
proclaim him to be
W e believe this to be particularly true
in political life. Under the thoroughly
un-American system of spoils and pat
ronage, and by means of the prevailing
system of corruption at the polls, it has
been of late years prominently demon
strated that some of the highest public
positions can be reached in America by
men of well-nigh lowest character
Now one reason that these men succeed
is that "nothing succeeds like success; "
and that even me themselves person
ally honest have a certain admiration
for the ability of the conscienceless man
of success. Our present effort is to re
move part of the credit of the success
ful rogue. If he is less admired perhaps
he will be less successful; and if he is
better understood perhaps he will be
somewhat less admired. Well, then, it
is a fact that the successful rascally pol
itician, while doubtless having a certain
amount of natural "smartness," is, in
reality and upon close examination, not
nearly so "smart" as he superficially
appears to be. Under the spoils system,
which is only partly abrogated in the
United btates, it does not take how ri-
diculouslv true it is that it does not take
great abilities to insure success in the
?orrmt maneuvers of the political
field. The onlv wonder is when, under
present conditions, a thoroughly scru
pulous leader appears in local or gener
al politics. To win success without re
sorting to the usual unscrupulous meth
ods that is the test of real force r
there should be the focus of admiration.
The principle is true in ordinary bus
iness; it is true in politics; it is particu
larly true in the journalistic world. It
is a harder task, it requires more gen
uine ability and greater "staying pow
er," to reap worldly success in this field
scrupulously than unscrupulously.
The fact is that there is altogether
too much reverence for rascals, and for
rascally methods, on the part of toler
ably decent people. , Rascality is pictur
esque, doubtless, and in fiction it has
even its moral uses; but in real life it
should have no toleration; and it is, as
a matter of fact, seldom accompanied
by the ability that it brags.
One proof that the smart rogue is not
so smart as he thinks, and as others
think, is that he so often comes to grief.
He arrives at his successes through his
knowledge of the evil in men; he comes
to grief through his ignorance of the
good in men. He thinks he knows
"human nature," but he only hall
knows it. Therefore he is constantly
in danger of making a fatal mistake.
For instance, his excuse to himself for
lvine and trickery is that'lviner and
trickery are indulged in by others
even by some men who make a loud
boast of virtue before the world. A
little more or less of lying and trickery
seems to make no dinerence, he as
sumes, especially so Ions: as tnere is
no public display of lies and tricks,
for he understands that there must al
ways be a certain outward propriety in
order to insure even the inferior kind
of success he is aiming at. Bnt, having
no usable conscience to guide him, he
underrates the sensitiveness of other
nonsriennes and esneHfl.ll v the sensi-
tiveness of that vague sentiment called contending for supremacy, by the use of
"public opinion," and he makes a that most potential power, the individ
misoal mil a tion whih if it does not ual ballot. One of these armies repre-
8 land him in the penitentiary, at least
6 makes him of no use to his respectable
9 allies; therefore, of no use to his semi-
criminal associates; therefore, a sur
prised, miserable, and vindictive failure

Editob Farmers' Alliance: Per-,
haps a few lines from this neck o' woods
micrht be read with interest. We have
an Alliance here (Garfield No. 800) of
over seventy-five members. We. with
other Alliances, own and run an eleva-
tor at Edgar, and have done a heavy
business in the grain line. Report says
we have been the means of keepings
corn irom one to tnree cents higher
than at other neighboring towms
Our Alliance is organized for business,
and we firmly believe a change in our
laws and lawmakers is absolutely es
sential to the liberty and prosperity of
the laboring people; and at least ninety
five per cent, of our Alliance will Tote
to that end this fall, while less than five
per cent, will still support the same old
railroad cappers they have for years.
Our merchants buy their goods where
they can ao tneiDest, and we " hayseeds
have adopted the same rule.
it appears tnat fcrran'ma inayer is
afraid 0 thunder, as he began to dodge
at the first distant rumblings. But
then he has been with the dodge party
so long ne can t help it. Ten years ago
I was president of an Alliance here. At
that time I had several talks with a
leading lawyer of the place in regard to
the wants of the farmers. He said the
farmer should not go into politics.
Says he, "We did not know until now
that you were so oppressed. We now
see just what you want, and the 'Repub
lican party now stands ready and anx
ious to give you gust such laws as you
want. We will do anything for the
dear people." Well, what have they
done ior us? jsotning out lie. Many
of us are old soldiers, and life is too
short to monkey longerwith side issues
We propose to put a party to the front
whose servants-will be instructed that
treason is death. We demand and will
have a government of the people, by
the people and for the people, and nt

It may seem strange, but it is never-
theless true, that alcohol regularly ap
plied to .the thrifty farmer's stomach
will remove tne ooaras irom tne ience,
let the cattle into his crops, kill his
fruit trees, mortgage his farm and sow
his helds with wim oats ana inisues.
It will take the paint off his buildings,
break the glass out of tbem and nil
them with rags. It will take the gloss
from his clothes and the polish from
his manners, subdue his reason, arouse
his passions, bring sorrow and disgrace
upon his family, and topple him into a
drunkard's grave. It will do this to
the artisan and capitalist, the matron
and the maiden, as well as the farmer;
for. in its deadly enmity to the human
race, alcohol is no respecter of persons

"The Conflict of the Age."
By C. H. St. JotJh in New Republic
The contest is now raging in the
great state of Nebraska as to whether
the liquor traffic shall be outlawed as a
business by the passage of the amend
ment to the constitution, or protected
by organically placing license in the
constitution. The forces aie gathering,
public sentiment is being educated, and
the public conscience is being aroused.
Only a few months remain, when at the
ballot hot will be settled in a large
sense, the' destiny of this great state, as
to wnetner tne saioon power snan uic
tate the policy of the people, or wheth
er the home shall be protected, and the
youth of the great commonwealth hare
a chance for life.
I see before me now two great armies
sents the highest and holiest principles
of our government, viz: "Life, liberty
anu tne pursuit oi nappmess
The other army represents a traffic
whose end is death, relentless cruelty,
unutterable woe, bitter anguish of
broken hearts, desolate homes, eisthty
thousand lives destroyed annually, six-
ty per cent of our paupers, seventy per
cent of our maniaes and insane, ninety
per cent of all criminals, eighty-seven
per cent of murders and the enormous
waste of productive power, the result
of one million makers and venders who
are now engaged in the liquor traffic, a
total aggregate which reaches beyond

sents me iruix oi tne spirit, love, loy,
peace, long sunering, gentleness, good

other army represents the works of
flesh, which are these: adultery, forni
cation, uncieanness, idolatry, hatred,
wrath, strife, seditions, envyings, mur
ders, drunkenness, revellings. Which
army are you in, my brother? beems
to me if ever in the history of a state or
life of a nation, the Spartan spirit is de
manded, it is in this contest which will
settle the question what class and char
acter of citizens shall build their homes
and rear their families in the beautiful
valleys and undulating plains of Ne
The success of arms for the army of
strong-hearted men and women who
compose the army of God, home and
numanity, means more than- breaking
tne tetters tnat the rum power would
bind the citizens of Nebraska' with. It
means a strong helping hand to noble
Kansas, the soil of martyrs, and sover

From the 1 rem ont Tribune. '
What it Cost Him. ;
The people ot the third district will
be interested in knowing that Mr. Dor-
sey paid in campaign expenses the fulP,
amount of his salary, viz: Ten thou
sand dollars. He is probably ready to
do the same thing again, which is not
very encouraging to our friends in that
district. It is quit noticeable that
though $10,000 was used, ".there is no
charge of corruption." Of course not.
The Tribune is in receipt of the fol
lowing, communication which explains
Washington, D. C, June 26 To the Editor
of the Tribune, I notice this 'surprising'
statement in an editorial in your paper:
"Representative Dorsey is authority for the
surprising: statement that his last renomina
tion at the Norfolk convention cost him $10,
000." I never made snch a 6tatement.ffThe pro
prietor of the Pacific hotel can give you a
statement of my expenses. Do not confound
the expenses of the Norfolk convention with
the campaign expenses in a district of over
fifty counties, when a legislature is to be
elected that is to select a United States sena
tor, and all the forces of the opposition are
centered on the legislative ticket.
Georgb W. E. Dorsey.
Mr. Dorsey misconstrues our Frr
statement and complains of a mean;r
which no possible ambiguity of thp
tence could lustify. It was not - .r.t
tuuiujuu. . u,m. . . u
to imply that Mr. Dorsey clai-u.-a to
have spent $10,000 at Norfolk. That
couldn't possibly have been, and the
Pacific hotel at that place need not be
called into this question. Ten thousand
dollars at $2 per day would pay for five
thousand days' board, equal to thirteen
and two-thirds years. As the conven
tion lasted only one day no one suspects
that Mr. Dorsey paid his board nearly
fourteen years in advance, just for the
fun of the thing.
To avoid any further possibility of a
misconstruction of our language, let us
try again to state what Mr. Dorsey has
said about his nomination : The nomi
nation which he got at Norfolk cost him
$10,000. This is clear.
Further on in his letter Mr. Dorsey
admits the campaign cost him $10,000.
So there is no discrepancy between his
statement and that of the Tribune.
It is a mere matter of dollars and
cents. There is no charge of corruption.
Mr. Dorsey poured out his money
liberally and on his own statement of
the fact the Tribune gave him credit for
it. Through this liberal expenditure
Mr. Dorsey eot back to coneress all
right, but lightning didn't strike his rod
in the senatorial contest, it will be
remembered that Manderson got away
with tbat persimmon pretty unanimous
ly, as the result of Chairman Richard's
shrewd; amd effectual work.
