THE FARMERS' ' ALLIANCE. LINCOLN, NEB., ' SATURDAY,' PEO.: 13, '1890.
, . SUGAR BOUNTIES.. s
The bounty for, the manufacture of
sugar is 3 cents per pound, of which
the state pays one-third. This will
nearly or quite equal the 1 total cost of
manufacture; including the cost of the
beets. We understand the Oxnards have
paid less than $5 per ton for their beets.
This is better than a tariff, and like the
tariff it is all for capital, and ;. nothing
for the farmer. Give the farmer half
the bounty, or amend the state law so
that the farmer shall receive the state
The law raising thi3 bounty was en
gineered through the legislature with
out discussion, either in the legislature
or by the public; and like all such laws
was solely in the interest of capital.
Now we will have a fair divide for the
farmers ia this matter or the state
bounty law will be repealed.
There is no objection whatever to the
farmers' alliance of Lancaster county
putting in a beet sugar plant in Lincoln.
Two hundred and fifty thousand dol
lars will do the business in fine shape.
, The alliance could take enough stock to
control the enterprise, and there would
be no trouble whatever in placing the
balance of the stock. The enterprise
would pay from the outset. If the ma
jority of the stockholders were farmers,
there would be no difficulty in procur
ing enough beets, and the farmers
would be sure of a fair price for them.
Of one thing all may be certain: There

Meiabers of the alliance are naturally dis
gusted wiih the ridiculous work of their lead
ers. The so called contest was inaugurated
for the purpose of showing that Illegal votes
bad been cast, false returns made and other
crimes perpetrated gainst an honest ballot,
liut at the very outset Burrows & Co. aban
doned that purpose and turned the contest
over to the prohibitionists. A strong major
ity of the people squelched prohibition at the
late election and that majority is equally em
phatic in denouncing a movement conducted
solely to air the grievances of cranks. Bee.
The liee knows the al'ove to be false.
It is quite in keeping with the suppres
sion of the most important and telling
testimony in the contest The Bee,
Lincoln Journal and World-Herald are
publishing only such parts of the evi
dence as suits their purpose, thus con
tinuing the anti-election conspiracy to
the present. This precious triumvirate
hope thus to mould public sentiment on
their side. It is au interesting spec
tacle to see the two bell-wethers of Ne
braska republicanism, the Bee and
Journal, united in a fraudulent attempt
to make a low-down villain like Boyd
We take pleasure in informing this
trio that all the testimony will be fur
nished to members of the legislature as
fast as it is taken.

From the ties that bind
A man to mankind,
Are a clog and a curse to spirit and mind;
For God, who made us, made only a man,
No arms of a Bnob, no shield of a clan;
Far better a friend that is friendly te God,

DEMOCRATIC AND . ALLIANCE
The Butler County Press criticizes our
opposition to democratic and alliance
fu ion very unfairly. We opposed such
a union on broad gro inds, not on nar
row ones. There is no fundamental
likeness between the democratic party
and the alliance. The methods and tra
ditions of that party are as corrupt as
the republican party. It does not ad
vocate any of the tenets of the alliance,
except in ft general way, the same as
does the republican party. The alli
ance advocates' certain specific meas
ures, to which the democrats are dis
tinctly opposed. And above all, the
democratic party is under the control
of, and panders to Wall street and the
money power as much as ever did the
republican. To attribute our views on
this subject to jealousy of the World
Herald is the height of absurdity.
Deliver us above all things from a low
aim. it is better to perish in tne enort
to do something worthy of the boon of
existence than to live on the low level
of the animal. It is better to climb
than to sink, and by the law of our liv
ing we must do one or the other.
Growth or aecay is the alternative.
Shall we not then fix our eyes upon the
heights, and set in motion all forces of
being that we may grow to that stand
ard? Let us not be discouraged if we
grow slowly or it we tail; tne same
Providence that lets the rocks of diffi
culty block our feet will judge us also
by our aim and endeavor. Said Victor
Hugo as he felt the powers of life fail
ing: "I know that man is immortal by
the capacity I feel within me to do more
and greater work." He felt that nature
suffered no wastes, and theft trained
powers of his mind must therefore find
exercise and scope in the hereafter. So
every soul that misses its aim in this
world, if it hold to its true ideal, will
hold also that power of growth and
work which is a pledge of immortality.
And your standard, if it be a high one,
may prove a rallying point for others.
It may fall to you to clothe your stand
ard in that personal form that makes
it most effective as an incentive for
others. For your own sake and for the
sake of this influence, which.is a sacred
trust, be as determined to plant your
standard high as was the youth "Who
bore 'mid snow and ice, A banner with
the sirange device, 'Excelsior.' "
A high standard of moral excellence
sends out its rays of influence, and men
are drawn to it as the ray of sunlight
draws the dew into the upper air. It is
long since I read B. F. Taylor's descrip-'
tion of the "battle above the cloud" at
Lookout Mountain, Tenn. But I recall
his vivid picture of the boys in blue car
rying their flag up the mountain's side,
now climbing hand and foot, now
reaching to help a comrade up, up the
precipitous side till with huzzas, hand
shaking and rejoicing, they place the
union- standard on the summit of the
peak. And as it floated there in the
sight of two armies, the one went hast
ily and silently downwards, while they
whose symbol of victory it was deep
ened their resolve that every hill top in
the broad land should own the domin
ion oi tne nag oi tne tree, bo a man
who holds a high moral standard stands
far above humanity's dead level,
the sign of one soul's victory over nar
rowness, and the promise of victory to
all souls determined to dare and do.

GENERAL TEST AND
General E. F. Test was investigatiag
the mortgage indebtedness of Nebraska.
The last we knew he was at work in
Gage county. We received an inquiry
about our mortgaged farm, which we
answered promptly, so that he need not
delay his report on our account. Now
Mr. Porter has reported, what's the
matter with Mr. Test? The coming
legislature wants to know about the
mortgages of the state,' so as to deter
mine whether the alliance is a represen
tative body or not.
Endurance, perseverance, holding
fast iu well-doiner, is one of the hardest
qualities to attain to. A single brilliant
leat of courage or righteousness, as has
been seen in a thousand cases, is much
easier. There is no severer test of char
acter. Josh Billiusrs pithily puts it:
"It ain't so much wnat a man kan lift as
what he kan haug on to, that shows his
aktual strength," It is the greatest de
mand; it is promised the greatest re
ward. VV e are dazzled by the brilliant
lightning flash.-, of some achieve
ment; but more to be admired is the
steady, constant light of day.
Swift heels may train the eariy shout, r-p
But, spite of ail the din,
It is the sieady holding1 out
That makes the winner win.

THE SALVATION ARMY.
Mr. Rosewater went to Washington.
Oa his way he interviewed a Chicago
News reporter and filled him with the
same kind of slush about the contest
with which he has been filling the Bee.
It was a prohibition affair election in
Omaha was as quiet as Sunday School,
Boyd was fairly elected, etc., etc. H. H.
ILiaf, in the next day's News, contra
dicted Mr. Rosewater squarely, and
elated the facts about right.- ,
We publish this week the first three
days testimony in the great contest
case. The people of this state can now
learn what.kind of a man Jim Boyd is,
and why Morton, Poppleton, Brown,
Miller, and the balance of the respecta
ble democrats had nothing to do with
' the canvass. ' : 5 ' - -
An Example That Every Christian De
nomination Should Follow.
An order just issued by Mr. Bram-
well Booth, , on behalf of the general of
the Salvation army, in reference to the
use of tobacco, is as follows: ! "Soldiers
should consider the evils that follow the
use of tobacco in every form, and the
importance of abstaining from it. They
should remember that .it is (1) injur
ious to health, (2) uncleanly, (3) a waste
of money, (4) -a disagreeable infliction
upon those about them, and (5) an un
natural habit of self indulgence for
which there is no justification. . Never
theless it is not a rule that no person
shall be a soldier who smokes " but
smoking must bar a soldier from any
promotion. He cannot, as long as he
smokes, be or remain a sergeant, bands
man, sergeant major, secretary or treas
urer. In short, he can hold no office
in the army. No drinker can become
a member of the Salvation army. .
If you wish to know whether you are
a Christian, inquire of yourself whether,
in, and for the love of Jrod; ' you seek to
make happy those about you by smiles
ana pleasant sayings. Are you a com
fortable person to live with? Are you
pleasant to nave about? Uau Hamilton
