Suggestions as to Farmers' Institutes by
Chancellor Eessey, of the State
Lincoln, Neb., Sept. 27, 1800.
Editor Farmers' Alliance: I have
just had my attention called to the de
sirability of giving some instruction to
people in the State who may wish to or
ganize farmers' institutes. I have ans
wered an inquiry this morning, and
thought advisable that you publish the
substance of my suggestions.
We are untortunate in this State that
hitherto it has been impossible for us to
secure such legislative action as would
enable us to hold farmers' institutes in
different parts of the State, as is done
in some other States, notably Wiscon
sin, Illinois, Minnesota, etc. For the
last six years in the industrial College
f the State University (Agricultural
College) we have made efforts to secure
the passage of a bill which would give
a small fund for farmers' institutes. We
kave co-operated with the State Agri
cultural Society in our efforts to have
such bills passed, but the politicians ev
idently thought that the State could get
along'without the passage of the bills.
We still hope that the coming legisla
ture will do somen wat in this direction.
In the absence of any legislation, the
best that can be done will be for each
eounty or locality to organize, and to
continue the institutes as simply local
affairs. A number of the professors in
the Industrial College have each year
attended the institutes in different parts
f the State. .We are, however, so busy
rith our class-work that we can do no
moi'e than to get away for one or two
lectures. We cannot remain away long
enough to organise an Institute. I would
therefore suggest that a few who are
interested get togetker and arrange to
have a preliminary meeting in order to
create an interest in the institute. In
this preliminary meeting arraDge to
.have om man talk on corn growing,
another on small grain growing, anoth
er on stock for feeding, another on dai
rying, another on planting of fruit
trees, etc., etc. Then lix upon a time
for the institute, and urge each man to
prepare to talk or write upon his sub
ject, and to come prepared to discuss
the other papers. It will bft best at first
Qt, io have the institute last more than,
ay three evenings and two days. That
is, begin with an evening meeting, and
4iave the meeting the two following
lays and evenings. If it is fully adver
tised, and the weather happens to be
good, there will be no question as to the
value of the institute.
If outside help is desired, in the ab
sence of any State fund for paying ex
penses, it will be necessary to raise
enough money to pay the actual travel
ling expenses of the lecturers. In some
eases these are provided with railroad
transportation, so that the cost will be
very little. The provision for this ex
pense is what the State appropriation
is designed for, and in the efforts that
kave been made hitherto, the money
asked has been for this purpose alone.
It is impossible to secure men from a
distance unless expenses are paid.
Probably no man in the State would
think of making a charge for his ser
vices, but he cannot be asked to give his
services free, and pay out from $5.00 to
$-20. CO for railroad fare and hotel ex
penses. A couple of years ago, in conjunction
with Secretary Furnas, of the State
Agricultural Society, I made and pub
lished a list of persons in the state who
eeukl be called upon to deliver addresses
and read papers. I have not time now
to correspond with these persons and
ask them whether they still hold them
selves rerdy to render this service, but
will venture to repeat the list.

two years the Alliance will be dead as
hell, and the fool farmers will walk up
to the polls in '92 and vote the ticket as
solid as though there had never been an
Alliance or people's ticket thought of."
I wonder if the people will allow this
prophecy to become true. From fur
ther consideration of the said reports it
is evident that they will do all in their
power to produce this very cITcct, for
they say, "our plan is to elect the sena
tors and members of congress by trading
with democrats and we will vote for
Boyd with the understanding that if
there is any legislation that is obnoxious
to us, Boyd is to use the veto power
against it. Of course it is understood
that the senate being republican will
concur in the same bills that gives the
d d grangers a pretty good show, but
Boyd must veto them. Then we can
say to the idiots this is what you get for
running off after false gods. See what
we republicans have done. This legis
lation that you have been asking for we
of the senate gave it to you, and this
democratic governor has vetoed it. Had
you stood by the republican party you
would hav had what you asked for. Now
come back to your friends. The repub
lican party the only party that will look
after your interests. And you see, we
have got them, they will Hock back like;
lost sheep and at the same time we have
sand-bagged the democrats, so the old
republican ship will have fair sailing
again, Anything to break np this peo
ple's movement. I tell you it has got to
be done or else we are gone. There is
no doubt but that the farmers have good
reasons for complaint, but what of that?
Every one cannot be millionaires, and of
what good is it to a farmer or laborer to
have any more than enough to keep
comfortable? tell you, sir, it is all
right sir for the rich and moneyed cor
porations to control legislation and gov
ernmental affairs, so they can take care
or the products ot labor and hold it in
reserve in case of some dire calamity be
falls the nation. . The fool farmers and
laborers don't know enongh to take care
of the surplus if the laws were such that
they could get their rightful proportion;
and I tell you, I hope they never will be
changed so that they will have a chance.
But I tell you for a fact that if they ever
get laws enacted that will enforce the
carrying out of these three demands of
the people's platform on land , transpor
tation and finances, they are going to
have pretty near all they produce in the
future, arid millionaires will grow beau
tifully less. So you see it stands us in
hand as politicians to work with the
moneyed class. You see we make our
money out of politics and that is a d d
sight easier than to get our living by
hard work; and the capitalists can well
afford to pay us big money to deceive
the people and keep them in ignorance.
But there are a few sharpers that have
caught on to our racket and they are
making us a deal of trouble, but we are
getting in such shape that we will dis
pose of them shortly."
Farmers and laborers, how do you
like it? We know republican and dem
mocratic politicians who are simply
tools of the moneyed class and who are
paid for their lying and deceiving of
you, and the money has been drawn
from you by a system of legalized rob
bery that has "already taken from labor,
in all, more than twenty billions, and
put in the hands of those who would if
they could, defeat the efforts you are
making to secure justice and equity for
all. One of the kobbed.
Resolutions of Box Butte Co, Alliance.
Following are the resolutions adopted
at the county couveation of the Farm
ers Alliances of Box Butte county on
the above date:
As anti-monopolists we find that the
republican party has ignored our de
mands as made upon them at the con
vention at Lincoln last May and we find
no encouragement in the democratic
partv by their actions in the legislature
and congress; therefore as independemt
voters we endorse the principles of the
Farmers' Alliance and fully ratify the
independent ticket, and be it
Resolved, That we, the Farmers' Alli
ance, do hereby pledge ourselves to
withhold our support and patronage
from any newspaper man, firm or cor
poration who will print, publish or al
low to be printed or published in his or
their paper any disparaging word or
sentence against any of the candidates
we may select for office, and, be it
Resolved, That we consider injurious
to our cause any who will aid in keep
ing such odious papers in existence by
patronizing the same. And be it fur
ther Resohtd,Tv&t we consider the attitude
of the Hemingford Guide and the Alli
ance Times toward the Farmers' Alliance
as uniust, uncalled for and malicious-
and done., we believe, in the interest of
banks and monieel corporations, and
therefore be it
Resolved, That we withhold our sup
port and patronage from those papers.
M. O'Brien, Sec'y.
for they had heard sufficient to convince
any farmer that the old parties were
rotten. .. '. m
We have had several good meetings
in the country, and on last Thursday
one here in Cozad which was well at
tended, and was addressed by several
prominent speakers. On Saturday last
our county convention met and placed
an independent ticket in the field. For
county attorney a Mr. Smith, who is in
strong sympathy with the independent
movement, and for representative in the
legislature Mr. Robert Scott was nomi
nated. Mr. Scott is a member of the
Alliance and a fanner. And is, I think,
a Knight of Labor. He is well qualified
for the position and will be elected, for
neither the democrats nor the prohibi
tionists will put a county ticket in the
field. It is firmly believed by the old
party leaders that the independent tick
et will be elected in this county.
The republican paper of this county
in its last issue says that the old soldiers
in the Alliance will not vote the inde
pendent ticket, but will stand by the
good old republican party. Now Mr.
Pioneer, that dodge is too old and is
played out, and for one I am an old sol
dier, and have been an old soldier and
a republican for forty-five years and
supported every republican president
up to the present time, but I intend to
vote the independent ticket and I do
not know of one old soldier who is a
farmer that will not support the farm
er's ticket. Nor do 1 know one demo
crat who is a member of our Alliance
or any other Alliance who will not vote
and work for the ticket. Mr. Wooster
to the contrary, notwithstanding. So
stop cracking your party lash, for it
will do no good.

AN ADMIRABLE LETTER EROM
Hartwell, Sept. 24, 1890.
Editor Alliance: The rally at
Hastings was a grand success, exceed
ing our expectation. The day was
lovely and everything passed off enthu
siastically. The crowd was immense,
equaled nly by a state re-union. Ad
ams county is ours. No power on earth
can defeat the people there this fall.
Doubtless you will receive full reports
from more competent pens of the grand
speeches of Powers, McKeighan, Prof.
Jones and others, so I will not dwell on
them here. A good , measure of the
success of the meeting was due to the
chairman, Mr. Lyn, one of the editors
of Our Own Opinion, who opened and
closed the meeting.
W e stayed until evening to hear Miss
Frances E. Willard, president'of the W.
C. T. U., and was richly repaid. I
wished every Alliance worker and
every Knight of Labor in the state
could have heard her; for some of them
feel that the temperance workers are
against them. They have no test of
membership on our principles, and
we have none on theirs, but although
many of them have not given much
thought to the principles which seem
to us the most important, many of the
noblest and best of them have, and all
who have studied these great issues
with christian charity and love are with
us. We are all working for " God,
home and native land." Miss Willard's
lecture last evening was on temperance,
to which cause she has so nobly devot
ed her life, and I cannot believe that on
that subject she can be equaled on earth.
But I knew that the principles for
which we are fighting lay near and dear
to her heart before she told us how on
arriving and finding out what was go
ing on at the fair grounds she "could
not keep away," but went out to hear
the speeches. She said she was glad to
see the movement on the part of the
farmers. I cannot remember exactly
the few eloquent words im which she
expressed her sympathy for our move
ment, and told hew it always seemed
to her that the farmers were so hard
working, so trusting, so honest them
selves, and confiding in the honesty of
others, that they had been grossly im
posed upoa, but that she knew that
since their cause was just, "it is just as
sure io win as that God lives and that the
The cheers with which this was re
ceived by her immenge audience, who
were mostly Hastings people (nearly all
the farmers being ebliged to go home
before eventng.) showed that the farm
ers are not alone in this great rebellion
against corporate rule. We have many
true friends where we least expected to
Then with renewed courage let us on
with the fight for " God and home and
native land. Mrs. J. T. Killie.
ENTHUSIASM IN PHELPS COUNTY.
Holdrege, Nbb., Sept. 27, 1890.
Editor Alliakcb: I wish to briefly
inform your readers that the allied
forces of independent voters held an
other general round up at the county
seat of this, (Phelps) county, and listen
ed to an excellent address from the next
governor of Nebraska, J. H. Powers.
Everybody except positive cranks ad
mit that he will make us a good gov
ernor if elected, and if every county in
the state will hold up its end as well
as we are doing there need be no ques
tion as to the result.
To-day our county eonveution was
held, and was attended by over one
hundred delegates from the Alliauce
and K. of L. It was earnest, enthusi
astic, harreonious and successful in
every particular, and the follewing can
didates will undoubtedly be elected al
most as unauimously as they were nominated.
For County Attornev, A. J. Schafer;
Representative, E. Soderman; Coroner,
L). S. Palmer, M. u.
There will be several more rallies
held during October which will simply
clinch the nails which have been driven
into the old party coffins.

THE HACKBERRY MAN FOR REP-
Surprise, Keb. Sept. 27, 1890.
Editor Alliakce: Ole Brederson,
the Haekberry man, was today unani
mously nominated as candidate for rep
resentative by the Polk county indepen
dent convention, at Osceola. He is of
Scandinavian origin, was one of the
first settlers of Polk county in the year
1869, and is one of the many who in the
old world have sacrificed position and
home and family for the sake of prin
ciples. Mr. Brederson was raised and
educate 1 by a noble family, but in his
young days took a stand with Marcus
HeanVs democratic agitation for freer
institutions. At fourteen years of age
he became the secretary of a secret
labor union, and has eAer since been a
hard worker in all reform movements.
He is 54 years of age, and has been in
the United States since 18G0.

GOOD NEWS FROM DAWSON CO.
Cozad, Neb., Sept. 23d, 1990.
Ediotr Alliaece: We" have seen
nothing from this county in your valua
ble paper, and I thought I would let the
readers of your paper know that there
is a county in the state by the name of
Dawson, and that we are alive to the in
terests of the farmers and the laborers of
Nebraska. On the 27th of August we had
a grand picnic at the fair grounds at Lex
ington, the county, seat of this county.
We formed in procession and marched
through town with over two hundred
wagons and carriages in line. The old
citizens declared that it was the grand
est display ever witnessed in the county,
and the old party men declared that if
the farmers stood together thus until
election that no power on earth could
defeat them this fall in this county.
Mr. Kern and Mr. Edgerton both ad
dressed the crowd and were applauded
lustily. At the close we heard several
farmers say that they had intended to
vote the old party tieket, but now they
weald support tke independent tieket,

This is the time for you to be shy of
politicians, as they are quietly but sure
ly working against you, and for the ad
vancement of themselves. A man who
belongs to the g. o. p. said to us Thurs
day that the Alliance was making a big
show just now, but when they come to
vote this fall, nearly all will vote just
as heretofore, and they would elect all
of the republican ana democrats that
were running for office. Will you,
menus? ir so, you are sureiv not in
sympathy with the grand and noble
work of protecting your families. Don't
let these foul-mouthed politicians get
you to thinking that the Alliance is not
the proper thing, but think the opposite;
think that the work of this organization
is all right, as it is, and a person who
has' made it a study knows. Fi'iend,
you have a great work before you and

Editor Allianae: Please publish
the following facts: Mr. S. F. Palmer
joined Piatt Alliance No. 727 along in
the middle of the summer, or the repub
lican party ring pushed him into the
Alliance to find out its workings. After
wards they nominated him for repre
sentative, and he is now making
speeches in behalf of the republican
party. He is governed by a Kearney
and Gibbon ring of bankers .and law
yers. They are backing him, and they
can do just as they please with him.
Now brother Alliance voters, we
should do all we can against such trai
tors to our cause.

A Signal of Distress.
Hastings, Neb., Sept. 27.
Political Pot: Please explain what
is "a signal of distress" in politics. I
heard Judge O. P. Mason remark in an
address that there were several signals
of distress hung out in Nebraska politics
iust now. What did he mean.
J B. J. D.
Judge Mason was right. One f the
most picturesque signals of distress in
Nebraska politics just now is O. P. Ma
son himself. Judge Mason may be
termed the original signal of distress.
When the friends of N. V. Harlan
commenced their mud fight on Mc
Keighan at a time when the voters of
the Second district were more interested
in issues than in mud that was a signal
When Senator Paddock, elected by a
high protective party, rose in his seat
in the United States senate and ap
pealed for a democratic reduction in the
tariff that was a signal of distress.
When W. J. Connell introduced a bill
to reduce the day labor by government
employes that was a signal of distress.
When W. J. Connell loaded ten Bur-
lintrhnn and "Missouri coaches with his
- . . , - 1 1
Omaha acquaintances ana carneu mem
to Plattsmouth to create an enthusiasm
which other counties m the district
would not supply and the Connell cam
paign could not do without that was a
signal oi distress.
When republican party leaders in
Nebraska telegraphed to Washington
that the passage of the McKinley bid
must be postponed until after the elec
tionthat was a signal of distress.
When L. D. Richards announced that
he could not declare his position on an
important public measure for the rea
son he had no votes to lose that was a
signal of distress.
When the republican party nomin
ated Tom Benton for state auditor with
in an hour aster a resolution denounc
ing Benton's methods had been intro
duced in the convention that was a
signal of distress
When W. G. E. Dorsey was nomin
ated only by the combined efforts of
postmasters, boodle and enumerators of
the Third district that was a signal of
When the republican state central
eommittee sent out its circular for
speakers and funds with the introduc
tory words: "There's a cry from Mace
donia. 'Come and help us,' " that was
a signal of distress.
When Tom Reed, Secretary Proctor
and other republican leaders of the east
were appealed to to come to Nebraska
and assist in the election of the state
ticket that was a signal of distress.
When Chnrch Howe deelared "The
old 6hio is leaking now" that was
signal of distress, but it was an almighty
candidate on the people's ticket for
commissioner of publie lands and build
in jjs was introduced to the audience
and spoke for two hours on national
legislation. And when he turned to the
acts of our last legislature, the people
were simply astounded to learn for the
first time of tho villainy of their mem
bers i legislature. Mr. Wright made
many votes to-day for the "Farmers'
Ticket." At the close of Mr. Wright's
remarks the democratic candidate for
county attorney was called upon for
some remarks. This gentleman after
prefacing his remarks by a very fine
eulogy upon the truths brought out by
Mr. Wright, saying that every word
was true, then proceeded in a very fine
manner to speak of the duties of the
people. However he did not seem to
realize that what he said had been the
rule with the Alliance members of this
county all the time. The exercises of
the day were enlivened by several songs
by the ladies, from the Alliance Songs
ter. In short the whole exercises were
a glad surprise to every one present.

FROM HIS OWN HOME.
W. A. McKeighan Endorsed where
Ho has Lived Ten Years.
The intensely partisan papers and es
pecially the Red Cloud Republican has
and is now waging a lawless and bru
tal warfare against the character, citi
zenship, abilities and financial standing
in this, the town of his home, of W. A.
McKeighan for representative to con
gress. They seize upon this as an op
portune time to make mountains of
mole hills, giants of men of straw, Na
poleons of pigmies, and in fact grapple
upon every weakness to which mankind
is or ever has been subject, and ipply
them to one whom wo feel proud to
honor, one whom we feel satisfied will
represent the best interests not only of
this district but of the state of Nebraska
and the whole west. If elected he will
be a Webster on the floor, a watch dog
to the nation's treasury. He will be, as
an advocate for the farmerj mechanic,
wage worker and the artisan, what
Robert Emmet was for the poor and
oppressed of Ireland.

WHY SUBSCRIBERS FAIL TO GET
We clip the following from tho Bliz-
zard, of Ord, Neb.:
We want to notify tho editor of the
Lincoln Farmers' Alliance that we
were in tho Ord post office lately and
saw a large bundle of The Alliance
safely stowed away in a back corner.
To send your paper, Mr. Alliance, to
the Ord postmaster for gratuitous dis
tribution is to cast your pearls before a
swine. He is, besides, what Cleveland
would call "an offensive partisan."
