THE FARMERS' ALLIANCE, LINCOLN, NEB., THURSDAY, JUNE25, 18 1.
W so receWed has wiilom If
, fj an below par as compared with
iJo tbe United siause K'"u"
in? revenues. There wer twenty s
sues of treasury note thus receivable
between tbe year 1812 and 1860. They
were uniformly at par with coin, and
In 1816, in the middle of Mexico, 6 per
cent above coin.
Now make such money, M receiv
able in tbe revenues, tegal tender for
all debt and taxes, and we have a
money founded on tbe revenues of tbe
general government, on tbe revenues
of states and municipalities, and on all
commodities. All men who have com
modities or labor for sale will gladly
redeem that money with value, and will
advertise tbeir eagerness to do so.
Then the last and final step is to
limit tbe issues of money to a reason
able volume as compared with tbe rev
enues of the country, and we have a
mosey system just as good as the gov-.ernment-no
better, no worse. A pa
per money not so limited and not so
redeemed cannot be kept good even by
gold redemption. That fluctuating and
unreliable metal has the cowardly
habit of being absent when most
This suggests another fact entirely
Ignored by tbe gold men. In all ex
periments with paper money, the
coins, by tbe'r cowardice and absence,
failed first; and if the paper afterward
failed by unfair treatment, it left tbe
people in no worse condition than it
found them. But paper money has
not failed as often as coin has. In
fact, it bas never failed when properly
and fairly treated by responsible gov
ernments that collected and disbursed
revenues. ,. ,
. The old continental congress could
not collect taxes nor revenues,
yet Albert Gallatin says: "Tbe
paper money carried the United States
through the most aiduous and perilous
stages of tbe war. . It
cannot be denied that it saved the
country," Under the greatest disad
vantages the old continental currency
'saved the country" and gave us our
American liberties, though its volume
was swelled by large issues at home
and by "ship-loads11 of counterfeits
from England, circulated in the col
onies by General Howe and Kir Henry
Clinton and their agents. (See Holies1
Financial History of tbe Unites States,
volume 1. pages 161, 162, 153.) If It
had not been for the much-derided con
tinental money tbe United States
would have remained dependent prov
inces of Britain. And Sir Archibald
AllUon tells us that if it had not been
for a similar paper money in England,
from 177 to 1815, that country would
bave become a province of France,
The Century for May has told us
paper money failed in Rhode Island.
Kbode Island is rather a weak nation
Iq which to try a decisive experiment
of national Independent sovereignty.
Her collections and disbursements of
revenues could not bave been large
enough to support a very large volume
of paper money. So with the over
issues of paper In tbe little common
wealth, which the Century says oc
curred, the better money of tho other
"colonies was preferred to It That be
ing tbe case, then, coercive laws could
not make it circulate any ' more than
' whips and clubs can make a weak and
crippled horse perform the work of a
strong and sound one.
Vet,wbile Delaware money was fail
ings similar paper money in Pennsyl
vania, North Carolina and some other
of the larger colonies was succeeding,
with the most beneficial and happy re
sults. In North Carolina 1400,000 of
colonial paper money was kept at par
for twenty years after the colony be
came a eUito, and until worn out and
retired, because it was receivable in
the. revenues of the state, at the rate
'of $100,000 per annum, without being
otherwise legal tender. The fact is
the experiments with paper money in
the American colonies were so suc
cessful and the results were so bene
ficial that tho British government
found It necessary to prevent the Is
sues by law, just as the same jealous
and tyranical government enacted
laws to Euppress colonial manufact
ures. To show that the men of the west
ore not chimerical on this money sub
ject, I call attention to the following
high and orthodox authorities:
The intricacy of the quest ion has been
much Increased by the hitherto necessary
use of marketable commodities, such oh
gold, silver, salt, shells, etc., to give intrin
sic valuo and security to money: but the
final and best definition !t that It is a docu
mentary promise, ratified and guaranteed
by tlie nation, toglveor lind a certain quan
tity of labor or tlw results of labor. John
It was a great discovery when a metallic
medium wan siitaliltited by barter; it was
also a great discovery when imper convert
ible into coin was substituted tor gold snd
silver; but a third discovery was reserved
for our own times, uumely, that, with nn
inconvertible miner currency, agriculture,

dacgers, found is necessary to cut
loose from coin aad to resort to book
credit money, but receivable in the rev
enues of tbe republic and. legal tender
for all debu and taxes. For a period
of six buudrtd years thcs credit In
scriptions, not redeemable in coin,
ruled above par as compared to coin.
During all that time tbero was not c
tnoney panic ia Venice, and there is
not alice on record that any citizen o!
Venice was dissatisfied with their
money system. There was never cny
pretense that these paper credit
would be redeemed in coin, and they
were never so redeemed.
Tbe credit money system ot the
Republic of Venice is the largest
financial experiment, without materia)
changes known in history. It proves
conclusively that a properly constructed
and properly administered papervr edit
money is a succct, even' under tbe
most try leg circumstances. If other
explrmenta have been less satisfactory
It proves that -some necessary feature
was somewhere omitted. In the case
of our Continental money, it was not
receivable In the revenue of tbe
government because the Continental
Congress could neither levy taxes nor
collect revenues. It was not legal
tender because there was no competent
government to enact a law of legal
tender. The atslgnats of France lived
as long as the issuing government
existed with power to enforce Its
decrees against the confiscated estates.
The bulllonlsts never refer to tbe
c. lit money of Venice, but to tho less
fortunate schemes of imperfect or over-
Issued money, ' where the most
Important requisites of a proper paper
money were unattainable or had been
neglected. Our own greenback was a
case, not of over-issue, but of legal im
perfection, because It was not receivable
in the revenues, and was only partially
legal tender, It was unjustly dishonored
In the custom houses, aud by the bond
holders. The men of the West claim to be en
tirely sane on this money question. We
bave studied most of the great orthodox
authorities on both sides of it. We pro
pose to try no sow experiments nor
foolish theories. All we ask, or have
ever asked, is that we may be allowed
to pay our debts in money of the same
relative value as the dollars we
borrowed. Yet men, ignorant at
donkeys, interview us and mlsreporl
us. Then when we ask to be heard ir
tbe great metropolitan journals and
magazines which seize upon the falst
reports and malign us, we are no)
allowed a fair bearing. But even out
explanations are garbled, misquotec
and derided with insulting epithets, oi
cast into flames as the ravings ol
insanity. It was thus that the minions
of Georse III treated the .patriots oi
1776. It was t'jus that slave power
treated the patriots of the fifties and
sixties in the present century. Tho
quertion of "Man vs. Money" is now
up in a third form; but tyrants seldom
learn anything from the lessons of
When we speuk of our mortgaged
homes we are chided as were slaves in
Egypt: "Ye are idle! Ye are idle" Our
silver money, though 3 per cent better
than gold, prior to 1873, Is branded
as dishonest money to pay debts with.
Our paper money is reduced. Our labor
and property, by these conditions, have
lost tbeir monetary value. Debt con
trated when prices were high are now
to be paid In gold, though we did not
borrow gold. The same financial causes
now in operation in this country
worked tho "decline and full of the
ttoman Empire," though the wasting
away of tho Roman money. The same
causes (between the years 1819 and
1820) deprived four-fifths of the land
holders of England of their lands,
though the suppression of the English
silver paper money. The same
causes (since the close of the Franco
(ierman War) have caused 80 per cent,
of the German real estato to be
mortgaged beyond hope of redemption,
through the demonetization of silver
and the suppression of and paper in
Germany. Will not like causes produce
like effects? Can man carry fire in his
hands and not be burned? Can
Americans perform 1m possibilities ?
Shall our American freemen be
unhoused at the bidding of Shylock?
Shall our patriotic freeholders become
tcnunts and serfs to an alien landed
aristocracy? Forbid it, heaven! Rather
let us act like freemen. Let us imitate
the patriots of our history whoso
names and deeds are so dear to us.
Let us reverse tho financial causes now
in operation. There is but a ster
between thraldom and liberty. Let u,
take that step. Give to the country
plenty of the money like that wo
borrowed, so that our labor, land anti
property will nguln have monetary
value, and wo will psy every debt
and redeem every home.
Who are the debtors in this country?
They are the aspiring, the lioful, the en
ergetic, tho audacious; they an-the up

J. Y. M. BWIGAHT, EDITOR.
ThU DepsHment will be edited for the ben
flt of Mutual Insurance Companies tbroufh
out tbs 8tata.
I have been told that the old line In
surance companies are now offering to
Insure for a less rate than ever be
fore, and some of our farmers are In
surlng with them for that reason. But
if you will ask why it is done the agent
will not tell you that it Is for the pur
pose of running out our mutuals, but
that no doubt is the fac for if you will
consult the auditor's report for last year
you will find that tbe companies made
a smaller per centage of profit than ever
before, and that being the case the com
panies would most naturally make a
ra se ol tne rate lnsteau oi cropping h.
In "88 tbe foreign companies paid 80
per cent of their premium collected that
year back to pelicy holders ia this state
In ta tbey paid 84 per cent.
In tit) thev paid 01 percent.
While our borne companies, that do
most of their Insurance on farm prop-
ertv.have paid to the policy holders tne
following rates: For "W. 17 per cent; for
HV, 80 percent; for "Wl M percent of tbe
premiums received, una oi me nean
men of a prominent state company told
me that his company expected to fight
our mutual company in tnis county, ana
presume be is making bis word good In
that line, and Is only following out the
tactics of all stock companies wherever
a mutual is started, which is to lower
the rate, cancel all tbe old policies that
bave a year or two to run ana reinsure
as many as possible so that they will
bave a Ions time to run and, of course,
will not be liable to help organl.e a mu
tual company that would not cost to
exceed tbe interest on wnai you pay
old line companies. From the above
statement taken from the auditor's re
port wa find that companies that do
most of their insurance ou farm prop
erty have a lower percentage of loss
than when tbe company carries city
Therefore tbe necessity of organizing
a strictly farm mutual, ana let us see to
it that our company is a strong one to
start with. All old line companies want
a large amount of insurance, for two
reasons: first, for the premiums and
second the cost of operating a large
company Is proportionately less than
that of a small company.
If any stock company agent tells you
that tbe mutual plan is unsafe and un
sound, or In fact offers to fight a mutual,
set him down as a knave or an igno
ramus. In either case be should not be
And if you stop to think you will find
that the policy bolder pays all the ex-
fiense of insurance companies, and that
n mutual companies you are a member
and can say what shall and what shall
not be added to the cost above tbe
losses; but in a stock company you pay
your money and have not a word to say,
out any agent will brag about the' sur
plus of bis company, withholding the
tact that you give them all surplus, and
that you are not remunerated for it.
Report of Richardson County Mutual
From tbe report of the secretary of
tbe above earned company I find that
tho 'company bas been running four
years, end at their last annual meeting
they wtre carrying t2W,000, and have
sustained a loss of eW.tw since the com
I do not know bow much insurance
this company had at the time of starting,
but suppose it was 1100, (XX), and they
had collected ten per cent on tbe pre
mium that you would have to pay to
other companies, which Is two per cent
on time, (or 12,000) it would amount to
(200 per annum, and at that rate tbe
company would have collected prior to
their anuual meeting the sum of fsOO or
$775 more than would have been neces
sary for the payment of losses. Now
look back and you w ill see that I bave
only used the interst on the amount that
you would have to pay stock companies
and further I have only taken $100,000,
on which I have placed the burden ot
carrying all insurance of the company
for four years, which at last report
amounted to $20000, more than two
and a half times tbe amount which
I have made the basU of my calcula
tion. Again, tho 125.00 which is the
sum total for losses is equal to twenty
five cents per 1 1,000, but we will admit
that this particular company bas bad
exceedingly good luck. Hut farmer
reader, look around you and count up
the losses that have lieen paid by Insur
ance companies in the last ten years,
nd then compute, the amount of
premiums paid insurance companies,
and 1 am quite certain that there will
be tnauv places In our state that will
correspond with the above report. And
what has been done once can be dune
I am gcttln? many calls for Informa
tion on me subject, and especially for a
copy of the law. If you will watch the
columns ot TttK At.i.UNC K I will try to
give you all the inforn atlon needed,
but of course I can not put all In each
issue. I have printed the law and tuods
of prowedur, tc, but by the Inquiries
