'STICK TO THE PARTY!"
"Take Care, or You"ll Elect a
As usual, when there is any threat to
disturb thfi fi-xisHnc nrrlp.r of' thinirs. or
any rebellion of the rank and file of
voters against party abuses and corrup
tion, the above old cries are raised.
They forjii a direct appeal to partisan
prejudice, and to the undying hatred
which many republicans cherish for
democrats. They are a common form
of th5 bloody shirt, and an attempt to
re yc the bloody chasm between the
n. Ah and the south. Who are the first
to raise the cry? The party bosses, are
they not? the men you have put in of
fice and paid fat salaries to the men
who hope by that same party cry to re
tain their fat jobs or get fatter ones.
Papers like the B. f -V. Journal, which
are the paid organs of corporations.and
which whoop it up for the party when
friends of ' the corporations are candi
dates, but which organize bolts when
men who call their souls their own re
ceive nominations, as that paper did in
the case of Ed. lloggen.
The help of the rank and file is indis
pensable to the party bosses. It is the
common voters who carry the greasy
lanterns, and wear the oil cloth capes,
and do the dirty work of the campaign,
and for whose benefit? For themselves?
O no! Do they get lower taxes or lower
freight rates? or lower rents? or lower
interest? or easier terms on their loans?
O no! The party bosses the men you
elect to office, or the men who sell their
iniluence over you for a fat contract
from a man who gets the office, are the
ones who are benefitted. Has all your
voting and hurrahing and marching
for the past ten years done you or your
brother farmers a cent's worth of good?
Hardly! You are deeper in debt, and
poorer and getting less for your labor
than ten years ago; and it would take
more corn, wheat, pork, beef or any
product that represents labor to pay
the national debt than it would have
taken ten years ago. . Think it all over,
brother farmers, and then look at the
men who are entreating you to "stay
in the party," or to beware lest you
-elect a democrat,, and you will see
what the whole party farce amounts to.
It amounts to keeping a lot of sharpers
in office, and "yourselves in poverty at
'the foot of the ladder.
Let the party go to the devil, and
vote for yourselves and your own
-friends, and it is barely possible you
may see some good results from your
voting in the not very distant future. .
.RAILROAD -WHISKEY STORIES IN
(TWO PARTS OF THE COUNTY.
iThe 5 por cent a month railroad-whiskey
outfit that is opposing the people's
iticket in Lancaster county go down into
IBuda and Olive Branch precincts and
:tellt the foreign born farmers that all the
nominees on the independent ticket are
irutlieal prohibitionists. They then go
"into the north part of the county and tell
that. all of the independent candidates re
fused to be endorsed by the prohib. coun
ttyeonvention. The people's advocates, on the contra
ry, ean tell the same story everywhere,
viz: that the tvhiskey-railroail county tick
et is made up-of as poor a lot of ornery
beats as any corrupt county ring con
Irolled 'by Whiskey -railroad power ever

As to the Republican Ticket.
The monopoly press has had consid
erable to say of late about the manner
in which the independent ticket was
nominated, insinuating all kinds of un
derhanded tricks and deviltry. They
do not attack the ticket itself to any
great Jjextent, and the Bee plainly ac
knowledges that the honor and integrity
of its members were unquestioned. f ?
Now; it might not be amiss to uncover
a few of the tactic of the railroad con
vention which held the boards at the
Funk opera house on J uly 23d. There
is not a candid newspaper reader in
Nebraska who will not acknowledge
that every delegate who sat in that
convention and voted for Tom Benton
was a railroad delegate. Certainly no
man who represented the people in any
degree whatever was guilty of such an
act. Now as the delegates who voted
forj Tom Benton were unquestionably
railroad delegates, and as such more
than a majority of thatm convention vot
ed for him. it is natural and right to
conclude that it was a railroad conven
tion, for the majority always rules. Is
th ere a farmer or a laboring man in
this whole state of Nebraska silly
enough to suppose for one minute that
that railroad convention did not make
itself safe on the state board of trans
portation and board of railroad assess
ment when it thus had the power.
Hardly. ' '- -- ' :
A Grand Barbecue for a Round-Up.
The people of Platte couaty are pre
paring for a grand independent barbe
cue. That it will be a grand affair may
be known from the way they are accus
tomed to doing things in that neck of
the woods. The Platte Center Argus
"The people are now in earnest and
they propose to show to the combina
tion against them that they can hang
together. Do not doubt it for a mo
ment that the ablest speakers in the
west will be engaged. Oxen, pigs,
sheep, chickens, turkeys, etc., will be
barbecued by a professional. Seats
arranged in one grand semicircle to ac
comodate a least five thousand people,
will be erected, and in addition pro
visions will be made for two or three
"overflow" meetings of two thousand
capacity each. Nothing will be left un
done to make it a success in keeping
with the independent spirit of the age.
The immense delegations from adjoin
ing counties will be better organized,
and we are now onto the racket of
thoroughly organizing our own county.
The old croakers may as well put it
down in their pipe and smoke it that
" we the people " are going to get our
selves together, just about the center of
the county, and for about fifteen hours
have the biggest blow out ever held in
this section of Nebraska."
We hope to have about three day's
notice of that affair, and be in at some
of the speaking and eating.
Jt3 Calhoun, of the Lincoln Herald,
bolts the platform of the late so-called
democratic convention at Omaha, call
ing it the result of "pig-headed stupid
ity," but out Herods Herod in whooping
it up for the rock-rooted party. It's as
tonishing the dose some men can take.
He keeps his democracy as a dernier re
sort, although awfully disgusted. He
says: "A stupid, blundering, pig-headed
democracy is always to be preferred to
the mercenary, plunder-hunting, ring
ruled republican party that flourishes
in Nebraska," in which he maybe right.
But if both are so villainously vile what
need is there of staying with either?
Railroad Political Economy.
A railroad organ says, "the nomina
tion of Richards has already raised the
price of corn 30 cents." Yes, glad to
hear it The railroad convention
caused copious rains throughout the,
state it left so much water uncalled
for for drinking purposes, you know.
Last winter the reduction of rates
lowered the price of corn. This is prob
ably the rtason why 'Tommy Benton
doesn't order a reduction of rates forth
with. He is afraid it might react, and
injure his friends the poor farmers.
Dorsey and Richards in a New Race.
Besides their row in Fremont as to

explained by this little paragraph from

THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE.
Monopoly Schemes in Johnson County.
1 Cook, Neb., August 28th; 1890.
Republicans of Johnson county are
plotting to neutralize the People's move
ment and destroy its power as much as
possible. The plan now with the poli
ticians here is to put some of the county
candidates of the people's party on
their ticket and put up the float repre
sentative and senator who are in the
ring, and by this trick capture the sen
ate and thus by this plan, block any
legislation that could be made giving
any relief to the people. The vaults of
the money-loaners are to be unlocked,
and hundreds of thousands put into the
campaign by them to defeat justice and
right. The fight on Honest John Powers
is to be made with Jim Boyd from the
fact that he is as much a corporation
tool as Richards and because monopo
lists see in him. an ally that would do
and die for them, while the democrats
would u.ot support Richards on any
consideration. With this combination
they hope to succeed. With Boyd gov
ernor, and the senate republican, the
corporations and railroads can for an
other two years carry on their high
handed robberies. Let the people be
warned in time.

Thayer County People's Convention.
Thayer county Independent Conven
tion met in Hebron, Neb., August 16th.
1B90, at 10 o'clock A. M. The committee
on credentials found that there were 85
delegates in attendance. The commit
tee on resolutions reported that this
convention would stand on the platform
of the Independent call for a Slate Con
vention, with the following amendments:
Resolved, That we demand that the
government shall pay the old Soldier
tne difference in the money paid and
the money contracted to be paid them:
that inasmuch as it has been liberal
with the bondholders, therefore we de
mand they be just to its defenders.
Justice before charity.
Resolved, That it is the voice of this
convention that all people should be al
lowed the right to maintain private
scnoois ana churches at their own ex
pense, and shall be allowed to teach
any language they please. The conven
tion adopted the State platform with
the.se resolutions added to it. The fol
lowing officers were nominated:
For representative, C.C. Burton, who
is well qualified for the position and will
make a good one. For commissioner,
J. R. Norman. For county attorney,
J. M. Doyle.
Without a doubt this is one of the best
county tickets ever placed in the field
in l hayer county, and all that needs to
secure its election is for every man to
put his shoulder to the wheel and work,
which will be do&e, for it is -declared by
all present to be the most satisfactory
and harmonious convention ever held
in the county. Our watchword shall be
;Work" from this on. Bidding the
ticket a hearty welcome, we sign our
selves, hhx Tyler,

Home Opinions of Prof. D'Allemand.

Furnas county papers in regard to the
People's candidate lor superintendent

in which a man is held fay his neighbors
is a good criterion of his oharaeter:

The People's Independent state con
vention held at Lincoln last Tuesday,
paid quite a compliment to Furnas
county by nominating Prof. A. d'AUe
mand as their candidate lor state super
intendent of pubKc instruction. Mr.

zealous and successful worker in the
cause of education, made a splendid
record as our -county superintendent
for three terms, and would fill the office

Hurrah for Furna ? county! A. d'Alle

This office received a call on Satur
day from our old friend, A. d'Allemand,
of Arapahoe; and here we wish to cor
rect an error which appeared in an edi
torial paragraph in the standard, re
cently regarding the abovegentleman's
nomination for state superintendent on
the people's tieket. A misprint gave
to the. readers of the item the impres
sion that we considered Mr. d'Alle
mand's selection a mistake, when we
meant exactly the reverse. It was a
bad "bull," Professor, and we will
cheerfully set 'em up every time you
demand the treats.
Beaver Valley Tribune Republican.
The Tribune is personally acquainted
with both the candidates that have been
nominated thus far for the office of
state superintendent of public anstruo
tion. They are both good men, and it
would be hard for us to make a ehoiee
Arapahoe Pioneer Republican.
Furnas county was honored in the
recent Alliance state convention held
at Lincoln, by the fact that Prof. A.
d'Allemand was offered the nomination
for state superintendent on their ticket.
The professor has a fine education, has
served the county three terms as super
intendent, and should he be elected this
fall, will fill the office with honor to
himself and credit to his constituency.

The Democracy Proud of its Candidate
for Governor. 0
The nomination of Boyd for gover
nor by the democrats calls up slumber
ing recollections in the writer's mind of
a. scene in the summer of '84 in Omaha.
It was in the evening. A vast crowd
had collected in front of the old Herald
building on Fifteenth and Harney St.
Dr. Miller, Judge Savage, Boyd, Popple
ton, and a number of other democrats
addressed the crowd. , It was the week
after Cleveland's nomination. Among
others one rural democrat (name now
forgotten) stepped out on the balcony
anp: began an eloquent eulogy on the
character and ability of Nebraska's del
egates to the national democratic con
vention, baid he, "There was Dr.
Miller, (cheers) the Nestor of Nebraska
journalism, in that convention; there
sat Poppleton, the acute lawyer and
leader of thought (cheers); there also
sat James E. Boyd, the public spirited
citizen (loud cheers), honorable and
virtuous" that was as far as the speak
er ever got. A perfect bedlam of
groans and horse laughter broke spon
taneously from the street. The crowd
was democratic, but its risibility had
been touched, and it wouldn't spoil a
joke for the sake of politics. Chadron

Is a Pauper Eligible.
Habtwell, Kearney Co. Aug 18.
Editor Alliance : I have been think
ing much about the statement by Bank
er Richards that a pauper is not capable
of and should not be allowed to hold
office. "Whither are we drifting?"
How far we have already drifted to
ward an aristocratic monarchy when a
person asking the suffrages of oppressed
men dare make such a statement and
still expect to be elected. One would
think it ought to be styled political sui
cide. How different this form from the
republic our fathers established. We
find1 in 1793, less than a hundred years
ago, a law was put on the statute book
which . read: "Any person holding
any office, or any stock in any
institution in the nature of a bank for
issuing or discounting bills, or notes pay
able to bearer or order, cannot be a
member of this body while he holds such of
fice or stocks.n This was signed by
George Washington, and very plainly
shows that in those days bankers were
considered enemies of the people, as
they only thrive by oppression. Frank
lin many times speaks in his writing of
rich men and usurers opposing meas
ures for the people's benefit. He says
also that t lawyers like to have the peo
ple poor, as then they will run in debt
and have more occasion to be sued.
History proves these things have ever
been true, and they are as true to day
as in the days of Franklin and Washing
ton. However, if men consider that
Banker Richards is smarter and a great
er patriot thaji those men they will
doubtless follow his advice, and elect
no man to represent them who has not
been smart enough to rob his living
from his fellow men. Respectfully,
Mrs. J. T. Kellie,
Secretary of May Alliance.
A Glorious Vote.
The members of the Mill precinct
Alliance held a caucus Thursday after
noon, and just before adjournment, S.
L. Will moved that a vote on the pro
hibitory' amendment be taken. It was
canied. The presiding officer then put
the question both in the negative and
affirmative: "All those favoring the pro
hibitory amend will rise to their feet."
Thirty-two men stood up. "All those
who are opposed to it, stand up." Not
one man arose. -
There were just forty persons in that
meeting and thirty-two of them are pro
nounced in their belief that it is not
wise for the farmers to pay taxes to
prosecute criminals and support pau
pers, insane, etc., the direct result of
the saloon, while the towns get all the
benefits. The other eight men are
thinking. Just what they will do on
November 4, remains to be seen.
This vote is a straw, and it shows
which way the wind is blowing.
1 Who Want Prohibition?
Men who don't use intoxicating drink
and don't want their boys to learn to
use it Women, who don't want drunk
en men for husbands and sons ;and little
children who don't want to go bare
footed in cold, freezing weather. All
order and peace loving citizens want
prohibition on account of the safety
and peace which it brings to a com
munity. Shall the home have the bene
fit of prohibition? We shall SO in a few
months what the people think about it.
The Inter-Occan speaking of the Origi
nal Package legislation declares that it
would be a great moral wrong as well
as a political blunder for congress to
adjourn without passsim? the bill on this
subject now before it. It says: "Any
legislation which either falls short of
vesting in the states the authority neces
sary to meet these conditions or that
exceed these limitations should be de
feated. The republican arty cannot
afford to make a mistake in 'either di
rection. To err on either side would be
inexcusable and dangerous.
Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage recently
said: "A few clergymen are hindered
from taking part in this temperance
cause because Christ turned water into
wine. But let me say to those gentle
men that last December I was in Cana
of Galilee, where that miracle was per
formed, and I saw the very firkins
which tradition says contained the wine
which the Lord made, and I have to re
port that there Is not one drop of that
liquor left, and there is i.ot a drop of it

Lying Easy for the Journal.
We are sorry to see a newspaper of
the age and discretion of the Lincoln
State Journal lie about the independent
state ticket, by asserting that there was
not a soldier on it, not that it makes any
great difference whether any of the
nominees are soldiers or not, but it
pains us as a newspaper, to observe one
of the craft puttiutr forth a flat, insinid
bare-faced he that is sure to end in ex-
Sosure. If we must he, brethren, let us

Mrs. S; C. O. Upton: In reply to a
communication from Grana isiana in
the issue of the Alliance August 16th.
by J. J. Klinge, Vice-president Lake
Alliance No. 1375. For farmers to read.
This Bro. says: -Laboring men and
farmers, when you go to the polls next
November vote against prohibition and
save vour state of Nebraska and oblige."
This Bro. certainly meant to say vote
for prohibition. If we are to save our
state from financial ruin, the only pro
tection for the farmer is to drive the sa
loon from our fair state. The farmers
are taxed beyond endurance by our
criminal courts with the rum traffic.

Let us compare the tax rate for state
purposes in Kansas and Nebraska since
1880, the period covered by prohibition
in Kansas, and high license in Nebraska.
The average rate in Kansas, under
prohibition, nas been forty-three cents
and five mills on one hundred dollars;
while in Nebraska, under high license,
it has been fifty-six cents and five mills.
Thirteen cents and two mills lower in
Kansas than in Nebraska. The rite
has increased in Nebraska, while it has
decreased in Kansas, and the Nebraska
rate in 1889 was nearly sixty per cent
higher than in Kansas. Facts, not
opinions. Bro. Klinge. read, mark,
learn, and inwardly digest these truths.

The Situation in Nuckolls Co.
Nora, Neb., August 21, 1890..
Editor Alliance: As I have not
seen anything in your paper from Nuck
olls county, I thought I would write
you a few lines to let you know some
thing about it.
I remember my acquaintance with
you from the date of your contest in
Gage county with E. Filley and R. S.
Ribb for Senator. I remember the able
fight you made for the farmers' inter
ests at that time, and how near you
came winning the race. I hope that
you will live long and grow strong in
this grand cause, until all of corruption
has been rooted out and honesty seated
in all positions of trust-
, First, our crops are almost an entire
failure, and times so hard that if there
is not something done to stay the pay
ment of both principal and interest for
two or three years, there will be miiny
that cannot be able to get through the
winter and keep their teams and be able
to make a crop another year.
If there could be a stay bill passed to
stop the payment of both principal and
interest for three years it would give
a very large proportion such a relief as
would enable them to live and in time
pay their debts.
This would of course meet with a
very strong opposition on the part of
money loaners, and many hard things
would be said about those who favor
the passage of such a bill, but it would
only be just to the poverty stricken
farmers of Nebraska. The money lend
ers have fattened off the hard earnings
of the toilers of this as well as other
states long enough, and until very late
ly the latter have born their burdens
like a well trained back-herse, but the
time has come when their voice shall be
heard and that in earnest.
