soldier may expect to receive one of these
precious epistles. They embrace a state
ment of the anti-monopoly measures of
the g. o. p. detailed by the monopoly cap
per at the head of its state committee;
and in doing this he has the hardihood to
name several bills that have not been
passed. The old bloody shirt is Haunted,
sectional prejudice and hate appealed to,
and capital sought to be made out of the
dead issutes of thirty years ago. That
this will utterly fail our confidence in the
good sense of the farmers of this state
impels us to believe.
The leaders of the railroad gang set
out by attempting to grandly ignore the
independent movement. But the sight
of a hundred thousand farmers in arms
took the wind out of this attempt. They
ate now industriously circulating the lie,
through this Slaughter-Watson-Seelybu-that
the alliance is "a strong and formi
dable annex to the democratic party."
They have found that it is "strong and
formidable." They are beginning to re
alize the stupendous fact that it embraces
more voters than the democratic party
ever cast in the state, and that all its
members are true and loyal . Such bodies
do not become an "annex." No, Messrs.
monopoly cappers Watson, Slaughter &
Co., you cannot rattle the democratic
members of the Alliance. In the first
place they don't want Boyd any more
than they want Richards. In the second
place they know that Boyd has no more
chance of an election than has Johnny
This lying trio says, in the last circular
we have received, " By examination you
will find that the Congressional and State
managers of the Alliance are democrats."
Now as a matter of fact the three princi
pal officers of the State Alliance and eve
ry member of its Executive Committee
were formerly republicans. This was
purely accidental; but it effectually dis
poses of the triangular lie that " the Alli
ance is a democratic annex."
And now, come to think of it, does n't
Brad Slaughter, Walt Seely and Johnny
Watson compose a precious outfit to be
telling the farmers and.people of Nebras
ka how to vote. They are simply a trio
of political skunks. There isn't a polite
ical crime on the calendar they have not
been convicted of. And yet they presume
to advise the honest yeomen of this state
as to their political duties. The highest
political duty we know of is to relegate
these barnacles and the railroad candi
dates they represent to everlasting ob
" THE FARMERS' TRUE POLICY."
Under the above caption the Bee of the

wailing. It is a frantic appeal to the
farmers to stand by the party to prevent
the election of the democratic ticket. Tt
says that it will take 80,000 votes to elect.
All right. It will not take that many,
but THE PEOPLE'S TICKET WILL
HAVE NINETY THOUSAND. Rose
water knows this, and that's what ails
Mr. Rosewater holds up the railroad
party as the one that will work all re
forms, and then says he has been advo
cating exactly the same thing for the past
two decades. This last is true. For 20
years he has been howling the same old
party tune, and every year of the twen
ty the people have been getting deeper
and deeper in the mire for twenty years
we have been making millionaires and
multiplying paupers for twenty years
monopolies and the money power have
been climbing the people's necks. It
seems to us that a physician who has
teen trying the same physic for twenty
years and failed so utterly as Mr. Rose
water's very appeal proves he has failed,
would try some other medicine. Come
in out of the wet, Mr. Rosewater.
Two Hundred Dollars a Night.
Editor Gere, formerly confidential as
sistant to Ex-Gov. Butler, the great im
peached traitor and fraud, alludes' to
the speakers for the independent ticket
as "itinerant $15 a night cranks."
Well, there is a difference. A railroad
capper and attorney, like O. P. Mason,
who gets two hundred dollars a night,
verges toward a certain kind of modern
respectability, that kind that comes
from money. But a $15 a night man!
Bah! That is too contemptible! What
would editor Gere think of a man who
worked for nothing a night? He would
have to be classed among the hogs,
would't he? or, all things considered,
would the two hundred dollar a night
man belong among the hogs? We
wouldn't presume to say. We leave it to
editor Gere. He's the expert in this
hog business. However, we are reason
ably well authorized to think that O. P.
Mason can be had for two hundred
dollars a night.
O. I. is a railroad expert. He charg
es on the principle of "what the traffic
will bear." The harder up his clients
are the higher price they will stand.
Measured in this way, he ought to have
four hundred a night. That would be
an awful price, though, considering the
kind of trash he deals out.
A RAILROAD VIEW OF IT.
The editor of the Wymore Reporter is
a railroad man, being a sort of man-of-all
work, right of way man, arid dispen
er of passes and boodle, first of the B. &
M., and then of the R. I. R. R. The fol
lowing extract from his paper of Oct. 1
shows the estimate that class of men put
upon the farmers. He is alluding to a
speeeh Mr. Bryan had been making at
"Money is what talks. Mr. Bryan is
a poor man, comparatively speaking,
and while he may be a bright, able, en
ergetic young man and a gifted orator,
he will learn when the count is made
after November 4th next, that the coun
try voters cut a very small figure in the
selection of a congressman. A little
money judiciously placed with a few of
the leading men in the country voting
precincts counts more than all the win
dy speeches that can be made. The
masses of the voters are a commodity
the same as sheep, hogs, cattle and pro
duce, comparatively speaking, and are
on the morket to be handled on election
day according to the' dictation of the
political leaders and money "powers."
The heart of every farmer of the state
ought t6 be fired at such vile slander,
and he ought not to rest till he had de
stroyed the political power of au insti
tution that rates him with dogs and cattle.
Harlan Returns His Pass.
York, Oct. 7, '90.
Editor Alliance: The story put in
circulation here that Mr. Harlan was
using his pass while canvassing this dis
trict for congress, proves to be untrue.
After receiving his nomination for con-
gress Mr. Harlan returned his pass to
the B. & M. R. R. Co., not deeming it
advisable to use it during the campaign.
This plainly indicates that Mr. Harlan
is asking no favors at the hands of the
railroads. Injustice to Mr. Harlan we
think you should publish this statement
The Woodman Oil Mill and the Tariff.
Springfield, Neb., Sept. 29th, 1890.
Editor Alliance: I see in the Oma
ha Bee of Sept. 24th, a long article on
the tariff question in which it tries to
show what a blessing the tariff has been
to the farmer. And to illustrate, says
that after the war there was a tariff of
20cts per bushel on flax seed, and 25cts
per gallon on'linseed oil: and that Clark
Woodman of Omaha invested $30,0C0
in an oil mill in Omaha, and that the
plant has grown from its small begin
ning until to day it has a capital of
Now I do not uoubt but Mr. Wood
man ha3 made a nice, thing of it, but
the Bee assumes that the farmer has
also. That is quite a different matter.
Between '74 and '78 two-thirds of the
farmers in this neighborhood tried this
great blessing of flax seed raising and
selling to the Omaha mills. Now you
might ride a horse to death before you
saw a single acre. I know of only one
man who has any. We are only fifteen
or sixteen miles from the mills, and if
they are such a blessing to the farmer,
how is it that so few appreciate it?
The facts in the case, as I understand
them, are that in this neighborhood
instead of being a blessing it has been
quite the reverse. , I do not know of a
single farm where flax seed has been
but what the land was injured to a more
or less extent.
I will state a few of my personal ob
servations about this flax blessing. Mr.
Mathew Daniel put in 19 acres adjoin
ing my south line, which he stacked in
to four stacks about the same size. He
thrashed out one of them from which
he got 36 bushels, machine measure,
which he hauled to these same mills
and according to his statement to my
self, after cleaning, docking for grade,
etc., etc., he got paid by that blessing
Woodman's mills for just 6 bushels. He
sold me the other three stacks for five
bushels of wheat, and J fed them to my
cattle. C. G. Brown on my west line,
was little if anv better.
John H. Miller on my north line, de
clares that the oats fed to the horses
while he threshed his flax amounted to
more bushels than he got paid for flax.
The facts given by our correspondent
have a deeper significance than he ap
pears to give them. Mr. Woodman,
aided by protection to maintain a mono
poly, has made in about ten years a
million 'dollars from an investment of
$30,000. But the flax seed raisers, who
in this case bear the same relation to
the Woodman's that the operative does
to the manufacturer, have received not
a particle of benefit from the mill or the
duty on seed and oil. In other words,
the tariff has not increased the price of
flax seed, while it has increased the ul
timate product of the seed. Of this last
increase the farmer (laborer) has had
no share, for the simple reason that it
was all in the hands of the manufac
turer, and he kept it all himself.
This is exactly the case with the tar
iff on all manufactured products, such
as cloth, iron, steel, etc, etc, The tariff
has nothing whatever to do with wages.
Wages are fixed by causes entirely sepa
rate from and independent of the tariff,
whether they be the wages of the farm
ers or of mill operatives in New Eng
land. The counterpart of . the Wood
man's can be found in any manufactur
ing centre. Ed. Alliance.

is a very important matter. It will be
observed that there are only five days
between this date and election on which
the supervisors will be in session. The
matter must be attended to on one of
those . days. All who intend to vote
should register as soon as possible.
MR. POWERS AT LINCOLN.
The state committee has promised to
have Hon. John H. Powers speak to the
citizens of Lincoln one evening before
election. This is as it should be, as a
speech from Mr. Powers here will make
the ticket and himself many votes.

exert all their influence to defeat the peo

It is a repetition of the Hazzard Circular.

The Home with the Empty Cnb.
Yesterday the children laughed and
romped on' the lawn and father and
mother looked gleefully at their fair
flock. The baby baby Howard crowed
and laughed in his carriage. He was
the lest baby, the dearest boy, his papa's
idol, and mother loved him with a name
less tenderness that always was akin to
tears. Other children would scream
with impatience, but our baby had such
a sturdy patience; we laughed only yes
terday to see his manful endeavors to
creep after a plaything just out of his
reach. How swiftly the little feet,
dressed for the first time in the tiny
new shoes his aunt : had sent, flew up
and down in the vain effort to propel
the little body. Then the papa declared
the pet should be rewarded for his pa
tient effort and the shoes were removed.
Then the little pink toes fastened them
selves in the carpet and the body crept
just 'a .little for the first time. It
grasped the toy with a sigh of satisfac
tion, as men grasp the result of toil and
struggle in maturer years. Mother
lifted the little form to his home within
her arms, saying, "it is baby's first jour
ney and reminds me of Longfellew's
"O. little feet, that such long years
Must struggle on through doubts and

And mother neyer dreamed that the
little feet that had begun so bravely
their life journey, and had won their
first success amid the laughter and clap
ping of hauds of the whole loving fami
ly circle, would never struggle for
another prize and would rest long years
bafore her toil was done.
That eve the baby was restless. The
good neighbor that called carried him
up and down the floor while she visited,
and said he was not well.
Baby slept that night as if he was
trying to be patient. Mother thought
him not quite well. Papa would not
hear of it his rosy, healthy, happy boy
would be all right. But morning dawn
ed and hour by hour it grew plainer that
the little one was sick, then very sick,
and soon, ah, how soon, the shadow of
a great fear fell on the happy household.
Thrice the doctor came and went
with grave looks. Death had never
crossed the threshhold of that house. It
did not seem that it could come, yet,
fear silenced the footsteps that were
wont to go romping up the stairway to
their beds at night, and father and
mother kept a vigil by the little crib.

eyes, lest they should meet there an
But soon the little sufferer could find
no rest except in father's loving arms,
and so through all the rooms of the
home where he had been the sunbeam
and the joy of . a bright spring and a
long summer, the patient baby was lov
ingly borne. The blue eyes seemed to
search every spot a loving eager look,
as if he would stamp on his little brain
an undying remembrance of his earthly

O- M. Kem, congressional nominee of
the people of the "Big 3d," was here on
the 20th ult. The people met him the
people greeted him the people heard
him and the people will gladly and
proudly support him at the ballot box.
It was so easy for the bright and pleas
ant Kem to delineate the true situation,
and to electrify the people that his meet
ing was a crand success. It was my
pleasure to listen to Kem Jind Governor
Dech at Loup City, and to uecn at Ar
cadia, and everywhere the people are
enthused. Dech'has the bearing of one
of nature's noblemen, the demeanor of a
statesman. And again accidentally I
chanced to be at Bartlett in Wheeler
county, and saw the people coming from
all points of the compass with banners,
music and cheer, and upon inquiry I
learned, Kem is to be here. I halted to
witness the demonstrations, and Kem's I

My business called me to Weligh.
While at Neligh I called at Hatfieldsand
his wife said " he has just gone to the
country to talk to the people." As I had
found gatherings of the people every
where along the line l said to myselt,
the people are all . for Kem. I had
crossed the rich valley of the Beaver and
met some of the friends of Beaty, our
next state auditor, and I am most happy
to note that he stands all right at his
home. That seems to be true of all the,
men chosen by the people. But I saw
Treasurer Hatfield, whom the people of
Antelope elected last year. He had said
that if he should be elected that county
warrants would be at par during his
term, and so they are. The people of
Antelope will cast a large vote for our
noble and .valiant standard bearers, and
far distance all opposition.
Bnt 1 must not iorget to mention that
at Bartlett the wise ones and brazen,
put up a man to interrogate our Kem.
Like John Gilpin, he got up to get down
again. One attempt satisfied him. His
batteries were silenced. He was like the
boy who yoked himself up with a steer.
The steer ran away with him at break
neck speed. Some friends caught them
and took hold of both ends of the yoke
to hold them. The boy said,. "J- just hold
the steer, I'll stand." So wiUfJhe learn
ed doctor at Bartlett, he stoodaside.
Persons told me that the demonstra
tion was the largest ever seen in Wheel
er. On Saturday night following the
leading old party had a rally, at the close
of which they called lor their adherents
to stand up and be counted and four
arose. A call was made for the people's
adherents and twenty-two stood up.
At Burwell, a distinguished attorney
made it convenient to be present at
Kem's meeting on the 23d ult., although
he lived fifty miles away, lie wanted
to engage in a joint discussion. Thomp
son Bissel, an unpretentious farmer, ac
cepted the banter, and the people enjoy
ed said attorney's great defeat. The
very air seems full of enthusiasm.

the Independent ticket. Of course we
know he 11 get every vote in his own
precinct, but as he has never been an
office seeker he may not be as widely
known as some others, and I want to
say there is not a better qualified man

county office. He is a young man with
a great big mind and strict integrity
and manly honest principles a natural
born statesman. The opinion of all
who know him is that if he serves one
term in the Legislature, he will be elec
ted to oon gress next time, because his
work will show for itself. Money won't
buy him. Every man, whether Repub

should vote for him. He wont go back
