' No Profit in Sugar Beets.
River Side, Neb., Jan. 2, 1891.
Whereas, It has been proven beyond
a question of a doubt that the farmers
of this state are unable to raise the
sugar beet at the prices paid during
the year 1890, viz: 13.50 and $4 per ton,
therefore be it .
Resolved, That we, the members and
farmers of River Side Alliance, will not
plant and cultivate any sugar beets for
the Oxnard Sugar Companv of Grand
Island, Neb., for less than $8 per ton
the coming season. ,
The above resolution was unani
mously adopted by an Alliance which
is within ten miles of the factory, and
some of whose members had out beets.

J. Burrows, Lincoln, Neb. -At our
last meeting, January 7, we discussed
the resolutions of the State Alliance
and considered them extra aud adopted
them, being mostly Interested in the
stay law question. But in addition to
a stay on land we recommend also a
stay of three years on all debts that are
made either on chattel or personal se
curities. For if our lands were stayed
for three years and not our chattels,
then how how easy would it be for the
capitalists ti close in on our chattels;
and then what would the consequences
be. We would have the land but would
have no teams, no cattle, no hogs, and
pray tell ns what good would the land
tay be to us if we could not use the
land! A motion then carried that these
proceedings of our meeting be sent to
your state paper for publication, and
that we would like to hear from other
Alliances on the same subject. For
this we consider is a subject of great
interest at present and we would like
to know the feeling of the farmers else
where. Fraternally yours,

Editor Farmers Alliance: At the
county convention of the Hall county
Alliance which was held at Wood River
Neb., on Dec. 13th 1890, several resolu
tions were passed and among others
was one strongly endorsing your course
as an able and fearless defender ef the
people's rights, and pledging you our
support so long as you continue to fight
the battle of the common people. The
several resolutions were unanimously
iiassea and ordered sent to you for pub
ioation. but as thev have never an-
peared I feel it but just that you should
know that the brethren I the Indeoend-
ent people endorse your course. The
people of this locality have every confi
dence in your ability with your able as
sistants to .manage a great reform move
ment. You are advocating an honest
cause for an honest purpose, and for a
tax ridden and debt burdened people.
Could Rosewater. Gere. Hitchcock or all
of them combined have a following of
seventy odd thousand determined men
they could well say our cause ia just and
we will lead our tteoble on te victorv
and freedom from the clutches of the
two old political parties.
we are watchin with much interest
from this portion of the state the pro
ceedings of the granger legislature. Not
believing for a moment however but

testimony warrants the verdict a ma
erlty of the joint session will give us
onest John Powers for governor.
j We have delegated our 2 members
down there to transact business for us.
We mapped out a line of work that we
desired them to do, and though the
moneyed sharks of the east and the
Solitical warts of the west may threaten
ire vengence, we would say go on in
the even tenor of your way, and the
people will stand by and applaud your
every honest act. We are asking for ho
special favors, advocating nothing that
will cripple a single industry of the
state unless it be political farming. We
may weaken that a little in some lo
cality. By the way it seems that the re
publicans, democrats and negroes have
united on one occasion at least in order
to 'accomplish an illegal proceeding.

J. Burrows: Dear Sir and Friend
It is refreshing to read your editorials
in contrast with the Bee, World-Herald
or Journal. Oh, that we could have a
daily of that kind and not be compelled
to read these others, as some of us must
read some daily paper. I have taken
all of them in turn and am equally dis
gusted with them. - I ordered the
World-Herald stopped recently, re
gardless of time paid for. -I have
watched the proceedings in the legisla
ture closelyv Mr. Elder may be honest,
but to my mind not equal to the emer
gency. I know Judge Cobb very well,
as a sacond rate lawyer. We all know
him. Norvalgot there, and that old
lieutenant governor why didn't they
put him out? s Majors doesn't want to
molest Boyd, neither does C. Howe or
Watson. They are all now working
under instructions of the different cor
poration combines and I fear the cor
ruption fiends will prevail, yet hope
for the best. What a spectacle, to see
both grand old parties trying to foist
a British subject on the people of Ne
braska as their governor. I hope the
legislature will have the backbone to
seat honest John Powers, and if I could
be of any assistance would contribute
in any way to accomplish that end, and
am at your service. But keep pouring
red hot shot at them. Yours as ever,
P. S. Real.

Our Editor Ia Lcvel-Headed,
Dissenting from the views of our
brother who writes on "statutory pro
amnion,- we org leave u state la a
spirit of respect for his opinion, our
views pertaining to the vexatious prob
lem. , The recent able editorial in the
Alliance, setting forth the objections
to enacting statutory prohibition is
worthy of the thoughtful and serious
consideration of every man who has re
gard for his fellow man's rights, for ma
jority rule and for the weal of his coun
try. It would, indeed, be "a great as
sumption" on the part of our legislature
to enact statutory or any other kind of
pronibiuon, u sucn were possible.
True, 80,000 votes were cast for pro
hibition, but had that rote been only
10,000 less, only one-third of those who
exercueu tne ngnioi irancnue in our
state on November 4, would have voted
for prohibition. Would it not be the
most arrogant assumption for the legis
lature to enact into law a DrinciDle so
recently repudiated so emphatically by
the people? Such a nolicv would be
suicidal to the party that has arisen to
relieve the populace. This new party

that our advocate for statutory prohi

as a party issue into the campaign.
Nor were our members elected as such.
Our party and our candidates wisely re
mained neutral on that question, and
should so remain. We doubt not that
majority elected are favorably tn
prohibition, but had they made a cam
paign on inai issue, many of them who
now enjoy the diversions of the state
house would have remained . at
home. Can they now afford
to betray their constituents who elected
them to legislate in behalf of the masses
to support such measures as would
benefit the people of all classes regard

they do so. for what can thev norm in
the future? Certainly it would be most
mortifying to witness the downfall of
our grand party and its noble princi
ples, and to see the reversal of h nn.
popular acts of our legislature! . We be
lieve that those men , elected to do the
will of the people will legislate impar
tially and wisely, and not commit so
grave a mistake as to succumb to the
pressure of the over ardent advocates
of prohibition who would sacrifice all
else for the consummation of their pur
poses. There are other matters of
paramount interest which demand the
Grpetuation of a people's party. We
lieve our law givers will have the
wisdom to respectfully ignore the im-
portunities of any and ail who would
force such legislation as meets the op
position of a great majority. "Hew to

There was a Conican boy who could

une Kind of retentive memory may
be considered as the result of sheer
work, a determination toward one par
ticular achievement without' reference
either to cultivation or to memory on
other subjects. This is frequently
shown by persons in human life in re

at Stirling, known fifty years ago as
"Blind Allck," afforded an instance of
this. He knew the whole of the Bible
by heart, insomuch that it a sentence
was read to him he could name the
book, chapter and verse, or if the
book, chapter and verso were named
he could give the exact words. '

accuracy. Aliefenesitated, named the
