The Awkward Booby Farmer "What
' Has Hayseed in His Hair."
Respectfully insorled to tbe Subordinate
Alliances of Nebraska.
I have a word for the boys
Who have laid asld tbeir toys,
And have entered upon life
In this world of wear and tear:
Do not try to be a "dude,"
For you know they are no good,
But be an honest farmer -
"What has bay-seed in his bar."
Don't be loaflng in saloons, . ' ' (
Playing cards wltb the "coons,? , '
Fooling, drinking, learning bow j . '
To cheat and lie and (wear i '
Nor stay out late at night, '
' ' For you know it Isn't right
But behave like a farmer '
What has hty-seed in his hair."
" Don't drink shot g-un whiskey '
For It will make you frisky
Nor ail up with swci-lager '
And get upon a tear;
Don't smoke a nasty pipe,
F.ut do the thing that's right,
Like the noble sample farmer
"What has hay-sced In bis hair."
Mothers, whom do you love best
When you so at night to rest.
And have finished all the duties
Of tbe day, and the care?
'TIS he whose back Is broadest,
And who has worked the hardest i
To gain for you afl honest living,
"And has bRy-seed in his hair."
Dear girls just take a lesson,
And receive at last a blessing,
When you are done with life,
And all this world of care:
Don't bo fooling wltb a "dude"
W hose brain is soft and crude.
But take a young and manly farmer
"What has bay-seed In bis hair."
He can raise potavoes, '
Corn, cabbage and tomatoes,
Horses, mules and Jersey milkers,
And take them to the fair;
He can raise the largest oats.
And can show the fattest shoaU,
And ho will take the premium,
"What has bay seed In his hair."
r Now if I'm the man to know,
To congress he will go.
And the dude with staring eyes
Will giue upon him In surprise.
As lie takes Hie speaker's elinlr
Aad HthBlng. they will wonder
How ihatb man gln here, by thunder.
What bath haytheed In hub hair."
Hecan b a doting father.
And bt'n love his mother,
And his sweet heart and his wife,
W he is so young and fain
Reran m a the cradle Kunla,
And help to wash en Muntiay
O he's dar'lng charmer,
This asrkoant booby fainter.
"What has hay seed In hi hair.'

The great gatheriuit at Cincinnati
will be in session before another iue
of our paper. The first great question
now to be decided U SHALL WE
FORM A NEW PARTY We put the
question now to the great multitude of
delegates who hare assembled from all
quarters of the country from the north,
south, east and west from the great in
terior basin, from beyond the Sierras,
from tbe other side of tbe AUeghanies,
and we hear in response a thunderous
AYE from over three thousand honest
hearts. That question U settled. That
is exactly what we are here for. This
is the fifth national convention we have
attended with that sole object in view
two in Chicago, two In Cincinnati, and
now another In Cincinnati.
There may be a few men here who
prefer to cling to the skirts of one or
other of the old parties who cling to a
memory or a name who think it is bet
ter to clean up and use an old worn-out,
rusty, demoralized and rotten machine,
than to make a new one. But these
men are so few tbat they will make no
showiag, and will be carried off their
feet with a rush by the thousands who
have come to form the new party.
The next question is, shall a conven
tion be called to nominate people's can
didates for president and vice president
Inl82? , ;
The answer to the first question also
answers this. It is an AYE that almost
raises the roof of the great Musk; Hall.
Almost every man says: "That's just
what we're here for." "
These preliminary questions settled,
the next great question to arise is
How are these things to be best accom
When this question comes to be con
sidered the embarrassments of the
great conference will begin. At' this
point will be developed the fact that the
conference is not constituted for expe
ditious or harmonious work. There
are here gathered representatives from
a great number of Industrial societies.
In the different calls issued there has
been no harmonious system adopted to
equalize representation from states, if
that had been desirable. It will be
found very difficult, if not entirely im
possible, to arrange for any satisfactory
ratio upon which a roll-call could be
predicated, if it becomes necessary te
have a roll-call. ,
For these reasons all parties who de
sire harmony must be willing to make
concessions to secure it; and for this
reason it will be very desirable that the
disturbing issues upon which only a
small minority of the people are united,
which belong exclusively to the states,
or which are local and temporary in
their character: should be kept out of
the conference altogether.
The tariff is such an issue. We want
no tariff in this conference. The tariff
is not and cannot be made a party issue
even between the old parties. The di
vision upon it is no longer a division
upon party lines,. but is a division upon
the lines of local interests. It is a ques
tion which the shrewd scamps who have
been running democratic and republi
can campaigns have used to blind and
fool the people. We hope and lielieve
the Cincinnati conference will ignore it
Trohibltlon is another question which
the conferaqca mast sbjurc. This !s an
bwue that belong to the states. It can
only b" reached by state legislation. It

a comparative few are agreed. Tbe
wise thing for the cotifere nee to do Is to

WHAT 8HALLTHE PLATFORM BE?
We have indicated In another column
gome of the thing which we think
should not be in the platform or declar
ation that may be adopted at the Cin
cinnati conference. . We suppose all
will concede that the declaration should
embrace such points as the largest num
ber of people in the United States will
agree upon. It may be possible to state
one single principle upon which all may
agree. If we add another principle di
vergence will begin, and this will in
crease as principles are added.
It is well known that nearly all re
formers, as well as great numbers who
still remain in .he old parties, agree
that an increased volume of currency is
needed. Great numbers agree that
$50.00 per capita would not lie too much.
Now we come to the detail as to the
method by which this additional money
is to be furnished by the government to
the people, and great diversity of opin
ion great antagonism in fact is at
ouce developed. An issae of treasury
notes upon certilicates of storage of per
ishablo products is advocated. The
issue of money upon land security is ad
vocated. The Issue of. purely fiat
money is advocated. Is It not evident
that these are all matters of detail, and
that an attempt by the conference to
settlo upon any iqieeilio plan will create
a division which will he to say the least

the primary fact that we want free coin

A GRAND SCHEME PROMULGATED
BY THE NATIONAL FARM
The difficulty of forming the different
industrial organizations of the country
into one coherent body for united polit
ical action has long been apparent,
When tbe effort has been made tbe ghost
of some old guard, the fossil remains of
some defunct national committee, or tbe
present jealousy of officers or societies,
have, thrust themselves In as disorganiz
ing and dividing elements. In Nebraska
last summer a plan was devised which
ignored societies and organized the units
which composed them. The plan was
remarkably successful; resulting in the
casting of over 70,000 ballots for an In
dependent reform ticket, .
The National Alliance, at its Omaha
session, adopted practically, the same
plan for action in ISM. . It is a proposi
tion made to all the industrial organiza
tions of the nation. It puts no society
in advance, and discriminates against
none. It provides an easy machinery
by which the demand for a new national
movement can be tested, and an easy
and safe plan by which a national nom
inating convention may bo called. . It
pu's all old committees and old chair
men, and all societies aside, while mak
ing them all active agents in carrying
out the experiment and the work, and
giving them all an equal chance -in the
results. It adopts as a platform the six
planks upon which the largest - number
of people in the United States will agree,
and ignores those disturbing issues up
on which the Largest disagree. The plan
evinces the highest statesmanship, and
if it is met by the other Industrial so
cieties in the spirit in which it is ten
dered, it will set the pace for 18!i2, and
RESULT IN THE ELECTION OF A
PEOPLE'S NATIONAL TICKET.
We publish this plan in full in an
other place on this pago.
Iri considering this plan it is well to
obsarvo that the Farmers' Alliance, lth
north and south, claims to Iri a non
partisan society, aud it guarantees it
members freedom iu thoir political con
victions. The KulghU of Labor have
not agreed upon turning their society
luto a political party, Ilk very doslr
able that these societies should main
tain their tion partltan character. The
moment they aro transformed Into po
litical partie their new niemUr can
come only from those who ate already
determined to abandon their old party
crmK Until that time they can draw
recruit from all clarn-s. In Nebraska

The success of Oov. Thayer In oust-
ing Boyd seems to have been as disas
trous to the republican party as the ve

the democratic. The lift declares
against Thayer, and terms the men who
are accepting bis appointments "bar
nacles aud lickspittles." Such endear
ing epithets are usually reserved for
one's enemies. It pronounced the su
preme court's decision a "monumental
blunder," and criticises the republican
railroad supreme court for the manner
of its enforcement. Practically the liee
accuses the court ot conspiracy; and we
cannot deny that many circumstances
give color to the charge. If circum
stantial evidence would convict It could
easily be convicted.

the Ike's vituperation, Tbe matter also

time grand sachem of the republicans of
this state. If there is any one thing
that Is dear to his heart it is the rejuve
nation of the great institution called
the republican party, at whose (shrine
he has been a devout worshipper for lo!
these many years. But if he expects to
lure back its departing voters by ap
pointing to oflice the very dregs of the
railroad tools at a time when the people
are in rebellion against corporate pow
er', he shows very weak judgment. The
appointment of E. C. Cains as oil in
spector U au insult to the honest and
respectable, seutimcnt of the state. It
is worse than that It is another link in
the unbroken chain of circumstances
that convicts the supreme court of being
in a political conspiracy, and will lead
many fo believe that the governor
was a party to it. Does E. C. Cams
carry one of the judges in his vest pock

price of an opinion? tiod forbid yet
such things are wliis'icred. The ap

HOW TO REICH THE
THE NEBRASKA PLAN.
The great conft-renso will be composed
of representatives from all the indus
trial organizations In the country. Each
of these organizations has its own decla
ration ot principles, varying In some
particulars from that, of any other.
Each of them has some pet measures
which it wishes enacted iuto law, and
each probably has some favorite leaders
whom It desires to be recognized in any
new party movement. It is quite likely
that most of these principles are correct,
most of the measures to enforce them
sound, and most of the leaders fair and
able men. But in this unorganlc condi
tion are elements of v.ncndlng discord,
and a platform too lengthy for any prac
tical purpose may result from it. We
publish on this page the plan proposed
by the National Farmer's Alliance at Its
meeting last December in Omaha. This
plan is known as the Nebraska plan, be
cause It was adopted and carried out so
successfully In the campaign In Nebras
ka last fall.
It embraces, first, a declaration of
principles upon which It was supposed
the largest pomblo numberwould agree;
Kecoud, a pledge for individual signa
tures, Third, a plan to get the declara
tion and pledge before the people, and
lo call the national convention In W.ri;
, Fourth, an Invitation to "all men,
without regard to past party aflillationa,
to unite in an effort to free the country
from the domination of corrupt parties,
trusts, combines and monopolies, to es
tablish justice and pure government,
and promote the general welfare."
We most earncstty commend this plan
to the attention of the great conference.
Iu advantages are obvious. It leaves
every society which may take part In
the conference with its own organiza
It places ail societies on an exact level
in the new party, only using them, with
their consent, as agencies to circulate
declarations and secure signatures In
each state, ' ,
, It goes directly to the people,-and ef
fectually prevents the plutocrats front
gaining any foothold iu the new party
atitsstart,' ''" ' '' '
It gives to tho convention of '03 an
ofliclal platform fresh from the people,
and so practically accomplishes the
hardest half of its work'. ' 1
Wo appeal to experience in support of
this plan. Last fail Nebraska was in
the same situation that the nation now
U, viz: with a strong force of reform
sentiment, and numerous societies, but
all as a whole entirely unorganized. A
declaration similar to , the ono adopted
by the national Alliance, asking for sig
natures, and nauitng a committee to
call a convention, was sent out through
the state. Twenty thousand signatures
were returned in a few weeks. The
convention was called, a ticket nomi
nated on the platform proponed, which
received over 70,000 votes iu a state in
which the anti-monopoly vote had never
