GOOD NEWS FROM THE THIRD
Mr. Kem's Election Sure.
Kearney, Oct. 13, 1890.
Mr. Kem's meetings last week were
very successful. He spoke three times
in Dakota county and stirred up a lively
interest there. There is a prospect of
carrying that county He returns
there to speak at Sioux City on the 21st.
At Ponca he found great enthusiasm and
addressed a magnificent audience in the
evening. Before leaving the next morn
ing he was waited on by a representative
of the business men of the city who in
formed him that they were going to
support him, democrats republicans and
all. On Wednesday he found it impos
sible to reach Leigh, where a large
crowd had assembled to hear him. He
will be at Schuyler the 20th, and hopes
there to meet all the voters in Colfax
county. On Thursday he had one of
the grandest meetings of the whole
campaign at Fullerton, thousands of
people assembled to hear him and an
immense procession paraded the streets
with flags and banners. Nance prom
ises a big majority for Kem over "the
On Friday at Wood River, the disa
greeable weather prevented the
meeting from assuming the immense
proportions it would otherwise have
done. But it was a large crowd and the
procession was nearly a mile long.
" Kem has made hundreds of votes to
day" was the remark made by. an influ
ential citizen and seconded by all who

tions for the mass meeting of the 2nd.

Mr. Kem spent Saturday and Sunday
at home. He goes to the western part of
the state this week, but returns to Fre
mont for the grand rally the 18th.
While Mr. Dorsey was here last week
he confidentially told "the boys" that
the " independent movement " was not
strong outstide of a few counties in this
section. He will be better informed
when the returns come in.
We expect to make the mass meeting
of the 24th at Kearney the greatest one
of the campaign. Extensive prepara
tions are being made. Powers, Kem
and Wolfe will be the speakers.
Yours for the right,

Richards and Majors at Neligh. -
Neligh. Oct. 9, 1890.
Editor Alliance, Dear Sir: I had
the honor of attending a Republican
blowout yesterday at this place and it
was immense. Railroad Richards and
his right bower, Majors, were billed for
Neligh. Oct. 8th, at 2 o'clock p. m., but
the freight train that brought them to
,town was some three hours late, so they
did not make it until about 5 o'clock.
They were met at the switch (for the
train had switched off for them to alight
no doubt) by a delegation of Repubs, 21
strong, that is, taking the he's and she's
together. This delegation was headed
by a band of music, and after getting
everything all leady, the commander
in chief gave orders to get there, and
they did, for they took a straight shoot
for the Opera Hall, the band playing
a death march, (the words I have for
gotten) but the tune was something
like the followinu:
On the 4th of Nov. we'll bury you
The sod with our ballots upturning,
It will not be worth .while a record
For you'll never again be found
Governor Richards spoke first. He
went away back to the time of Noah,
and brought those 21 Repubs through
all the engagements of the "wah," how
they had born and preserved this
miehtv nation, how thev had kept it
from falling into the hands of robbers,
C 1 t J I ! A. I A- t
ana nnany ciosea oy saying mat ne was
not much of an orator; any fool could
have told that.
But one thing I want to warn you of
that is to stick to the g. o. p. where we
have fought and bled and died so often,
and if we do this we will knock the
Alliance move into a three cornered
hat, and those 21 republicans yelped
out, "So Mote It Be." The governor's
speech consumed 18$ minutes.
Now bandy takes the stand and after
rambling around as best he could final
ly closed by warning those republicans
to skull clear of the paper called The
Farmers' Alliance, for it is the rock
on which we split. Don't believe what
you read in. it, for it isn't reliable.
J hen he gave the independent candi
dates "hell Columbia" and. closed.
Time, 33:10. All the republicans pre
sent again yelped as before.
A Splendid Meeting.
Representatives from every ward in
the city of Lincoln met at Kelly's Hall
on O street, Tuesday evening last, and
organized a central independent club.
.knicient; omcers were elected and mea
sures taken looking toward the complete
organization of city. Short talks were
made by J. W. Sherwood, C. E Wood
ward, S. J. Kent, Candidates Baker,
Thompson, Gillick and Cramer.
Among other business considered the
following resolutions were adopted and

A Red Lerrer Day at Crawford,
Crawford, Oct. 4, 1890.
a . -v . .
editor alliance: ucc. 4tn was a
red letter day at Crawford, notwith
standing there had been a three fcavs
session of the Old Veteran's association
which had been largely attended. On
the morning of the 4th teams began to
pour in, and before noon the largest pro
cession ever seen in the northwest was
parading the streets.
I he plow; reaper, thresher and roller
had their place in the line with appro
priate mottoes, One banner displayed
a plank from the republican platform
of 1856, declaring that, Congress held
the public lands as a sacred trust for
the homes of the people, and then stat
ed that 295,000,000 acres had been given
away. Another ,,$60,000,000 free to the
bankers and four per cent bounty for
tak ng it," and" loaned to the people at
mree per cenva montn." "We are mor
tgaged all buf our votes." Tom Ma
jors and a republican speaker had the
satisfaction of seeing the parade go br,
and as they were not able to gettogeth
er a crowd to talk to, just realized that
the g. o; p. has lost its grip.
The independent speakers were J. H.
Craddock, and the legislative nomi
nees. A good dinner was served and
rousing enthusiasm prevailed.
Legal theft and grinding monopoly
must and shall go, and go forever. The
are again about to make one great
stride in government progress and
sweep away the harriers to "life, liberty
and the pursuit of happiness," which
devilish greed and avarice, fortified by
the hoary-neaded conservatism of fhe
bloody past, has erected.
At th3 reunion were about 200 old
soldiers, of which at least 150 were Alli
ance men, and a per cent of the balance
were independents. The people will
rule, "vested rights" will go down for
ever and human rights prevail.

Ike Lansing the Clown and Webster the
Fossil. ' , -.
Nelson, Neb., Oct. 10, 1890.
Editor Alliance: Lansing and
Webster have come and gone and we
(the Alliance) are still alive. The bank
ers and loan agents were out in full
force to hear them. At our monster
parade and picnic on Oct. 4th, when
four hundred and thirty-five teams and
veheicles were in line, the band escorted
the people. On this occasion, however,
the band escorted the speakers. I sup
pose it was because there were no peo
ple to escort.
Fully one-half the voters who
came to the Lansing & Webster "show"
wore Powers and McKeighan badges,
and at the close of the performance
showed no disposition to take them off.
Mr. Lansing represented the clown, and
tried to say many funny things. He
compared the political parties to a big
"show." The republican party was the
big tent, of course, and all of the others
were little shows. After telling what
was in several of the other little tents,
he said that he couldn't say what was in
the Alliance tent as the price of admis
sion was so high that he could not get in.
We think there will be a free exhibi
tion after Nov. 4th, and Mr. Lansing
will see what is inside cfthe Alliance tent.
He also referred to a great Alliance
parade at Lincoln, which he had seen,
and said that the women in th parade
looked at their republican sisters in a
way which said, "we are here because
our husbands compelled us to come.1'
Perhaps Mr. Lansing is not a good
judge of facial expression. How do
you like it. ladies of the Alliance and of
the independent party? To have the
idea conveyed that your husbands are
bullies, and you no better than their
slaves. " ,
.In this way, and in abusing Kem and
McKeighan, Mr. Lansing occupied the
time, and never once touched upon the
important issues before the people. He
even torgot to talk tariff.
Then Mr,, Webster took the floor, and
ne represented the. nnc master. He
aped the English aristocracy in his
manner, and talked ancient historv. pro
tective (?) tariff, and sneered at the Al-
lance until the B. & M. whistle called
him from the platfarm, and he forgot to
say anything about the financial con
dition of our people, or about railroad
monopoly or any of the things in which
our rarmers ana laboring people are so
xes we are still alive and aboard the
independent ship which will carry us
through to victory this fail.
