Lixcour, Neb., Aug. -4 Tbe
state executive committee of tie
Knights of Labor of Nebraska hae
been In session here since Saturday.
The meeting has been a very important
one and much business was transacted.
A new paper, called the Knighta of
Labor, was ordered, and it will be
published next week at Omaha. The
state committee will manage il and
attend the editorial writing.
The following manifesto is published
in the World: , , ' K ?
LiscoiK. - Neb., Aug. ' 3 The
Public and United Labor. For in
numerable years the toilers and real
wealth producers of the world have
been held, as a class, in comparative
bondage by money, generally designat
ed as capital. Many efforts have been
made to gain freedom from the unjust
servitude; many theories have been
advanced by which serfdom might at
least be mitigated and a fuller share of
the products of their . toil be realized
for themselves. Amongst the many
devices by which this just demand
might be secured is the shortening of
the hours of labor. Successively have
reductions been made from fourteen
hours to twelve and from twelve to ten.
Although fought in each case with des
perate energy by the combined forces
of the employers, yet once attained
have been fraught with blessings
untold to the laboring man.
Labor-saving machinery' noble
children of the mind, fertilized by sur
roundings only made possible by the
spirit of freedom, should be and are, by
right, the just heritiage of humanity
at large, after a fair and just remuner
ation to the inventor. But this has not
been realized; for in almost every cose,
the inventor has received but little re
compense while combined capital has
gained control and has placed a tax
upon the whole people. So also in the
manipation of the natural resources of
the earth, gold, silver, coal, etc., the
ownership of the people has been dis
regarded and increased tribute levied
tipon them by that power.
This condition of affairs has brought
about the necessity of a still futher re
duction of the hours of labor from ten
to eight. To obtain the recognization
of this just and humane demand,
strikes, boycots and other forcible
means have been resorted to by the
laboring masses, which, at times
temporarily successful, have brought
in their wake untold privation and
misery. Convinced of the justice of this
demand, the people of the state of Ne
braska, through their representatives,
have enacted a law which guarantees
them in that right, and which has but
one intent and one object, viz.: Making
it obligatory on the part of the
employer and employed to allow the
performance of no more than eight
hours of labor as one day's work,
out of each successive twenty-four
hours, thus making room or giving
employment to the army of men who
are now in enforced idleness.
It is certainly the first duty of a
government that reserves for itself the
high privilege of exacting service,
health and lie, when it, the govern
ment, is endangered, to supply the cit
izen with employment whereby he may
gain substance for himself and family.
This duty, the government, both state
and national, has neglected to perform,
while law after law has been placed up
on the statue books in the interests of
money, controlled in general by com
binations or corporations.
We find now that men who 1 have
abused the toiling masses as law break
ers and peace destroyers are determin
ed to thwart the objects and purpose
of $ie law, and by iron bound, contracts
compel the employed to become, with
them, law breakers, 'or be thrown outof
employment. An attempt to compel
men to work by the hour is plain
evasion of the law, and is far more
criminal than many acts, which if com
mitted by the common people, would
place them in the penitentiary. This
law was enacted for the benefit of both
employed and unemployed, and every
man, with mere comprehension, under
stands this, and nnught but square
tpecj dishonesty can torture it into any.
thing else. 'RbiESSSSLcv-vX
t Vfe do7 not wish to injure the em
ployer, we do not urge strikes. All we
ask is obedience to law. If, after trial,
the savereigh people shall decide that
it is unjust and injurious they will re
peal it, as should be done with all laws
that are unjust, and are destructive to
the peace, happiness and prosperity of
the great common brotherhood of
. Therefore, to the proper enforcement
of this law, we ask that the attorney
gen' ral of the state of Nebraska use all
the powers in him vested to see that
the law in its full extent be enforced.
We further specially urge the friends
of this reform to be reasonable in their
demands, using none but honorable
means to obtain justice. We pledge
' ourselves to use every effort to secure
the full enforcement of the law, and
we sincerely believe that all true
lovers of justice, all truejgatriots, all
good Christians and lors of good
government and humanity will sustain
us in our efforts.

An Eiffel Tower.
Chicago, Aug. 5. President Baker
of the World's Columbian directors,
today received a proposition by cable
from M. Eiffel, the architect of
the Eiffel tower, for permission
to erect a tower on the grounds, the
enterprise to be by French capital.
The cable was brief but set forth that
the tower would be superior to the one
at .the Paris exposition. President
Baker cabled in return that he was
very glad to receive the proposition
and would bring it immediately to the
attention of the directors.

DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES
Popular, Call for a People's Independent State Convention.
1 We, tha nnderjigaed, citizens of the State of Nebraska, hereby declare our adhesion to the following fundamen
tal principles, and demand that they be enacted into law, viz:
Oar financial syBtem shouVi be reformed by the restoration of silver to its old time place in our currency and ita
free and unlimited coinage on an equality with gold, and by the increase of our money circulation until it reaches the
sum of 800 per capita; and all paper issues necessary to secure that amount should be made by the government alone,
and be full legal tender fcr all debt public and private.
That land monopoly should be abolished either by limitation of ownership or graduated taxation of excessive
holdings, so.that all the competent should have an opportunity to labor, secure homes and become good citizens; and
alien ownership should be prohibited.
That the railroad system, as at present managed, is a system of spoliation and robbery, and that its enormous
bonded debt at fictitious valuations is absorbing the substance of the people in the Interest of millionaires; that the
general government should own and operate the railroads and telegraphs, and furnish transportation at cost, the same '
as mail facilities are now furnished: and that our legislature shall enact a freight rate law which, shall fix rates no
higher than those now in force in Iowa.
' We demand that our state and national systems of taxation shall be so adjusted that our laboring interests will
be fostered, and wealth bear its just burdens, instead of our farmers, laborers, merchants and mechanics being com
pelled to pay, as at present, by far the largct portion of public expense.
We further declare th at the political machinery in this state has been controlled by the corporate power for the
, plunder of the people and the enrichment of itself, and we have entirely lost confidence in the efficacy of that ma
chinery for the enactment of just and the repeal of unjust laws.
We, therefore, hereby give our voice for the call of a People's Independent State Convention, to nominate pure
and honorable men for the different state offices on the principles named above; and we hereby pledge ourselves, if
pure and honorable men are so selected, to vote and work for their election.
And we hereby invite all men, without regard to past or present political affiliations, to join us in this our effort
' for pure government, for relief from the shackles of party politics and the domination of corporate power in our
public affairs. ' ' '
OCR OMAHA LETTER.
Johnny Watson created a great stir
among the corporation politicians in
Omaha by his declaration that we would
elect a new governor this fall. They
were all in a hurry to get it smothered;
to Ipse their governor would be too
much, as they see now the supreme court
slipping out of their hands. But be
ware, they will not give up tlje supreme
court without a great struggle. Dele
gates to the state convention, look out
for the man that pretends to be your
friends, and tries to make you believe
that Edgerton has not the ability to be
a supreme judge. Remember that he
possesses one qualification that many of
our supreme judges heretofore have not
had, and that Is honesty. Your corres
pondent has good reason to know that
this turn is going to be worked hard by
the bar of the state and at the bidding
of the combined corporations. There
fore beware of such a friend (5) to the
cause. , ,i
Senator Coulter spent a few days in
the city last week. Oh that Omaha had

The phrase:"sound healthy basis" has
been modified now bythe Omaha-dailies
so as to "read sound stable basis" We
think ;if they would give it another
twist of the pen and call it a stable
without a basis they would come nearer
the truth. Because their sound, healthy
"or stable" would-be basis is never a ba
sis when it is needed. This thing of any
single commodity as a basis for money
is an entire fraud and always has been.
All money should be based upon the en
tire wealth of the government, and not
upon any single commodity or collec
tion of commodities. Any other basis
is only a trap to get a corner on money.
The shrewdness of the modern shylock
is far superior to the shylock of old, for
then they knew nothing but straight in
terest, while now they have learned
that by simply contracting the money
of a country they thereby increase the
value of their money obligations. The
system of some single commodity as a
a basis has served them well as a medi
um to contract the money. We hope it
is worn out and that a money will be
sed soon that is real money."
A Voice from PhelpS Couaty.
, Holdeege. .Neb., Aug. 1, 1891.
Editor Alliance: Realizing the
fact that the old parties are tryicg to
foist some- of their old worn out cap
pers and wire pullerswho have fattened
at the corporation crib upon us for dis
trict judge in this district, I thought it
proper to let the people of tha district
know the sentiment of this locality in
regard to the mattsr.
It is one of the cardinal principles of
the Independent party that it should
cut loose from all the old party methods
and nominate and elect men who have
not been bound up with the rings, and
engaged in the trickery and wire pull
ing of the old parties.
They now cry non-partisan judge.but
at the same time, are doing all in their
power to get the independents to nomi
nate a railroad attorney, or what is
worse a beer guzzling three per cent
shylock. If we take up such men can
we expect anything different from
what we have had in the past? We say
by our acts that we will join hands with
the very class of men that we have or
ganized to rid ourselves of, and virtual
ly that we have no material among the
true and tried independents to conduct
the affairs of date. Death bed repent
ance may be all right as far as the king
dom of heaven is concerned, but in the
political kingdom a conversion just at
the beginning of a campaign looks
rather suspicious to say the least, es
pecially when a corporation robe is
thrown off and an independent one sub
stituted. There can be no doubt but
that the independent voters of this dis
trict will see, in spite of their loud pre
tensions, the -brass collar" that those
men have worn so long.
We are engaged in this battle for
right aad justice; then whea defeat is
staring the enemy in the face shall we
accept their leaders as our leaders, and
expect to accomplish our purpose. We
should not suffer ourselves to be be
trayed by a "k:ss,"but before accepting
those very sudden conversions as sin
cere, especially when an office is in view,
let them demonsti ate by their acts, and
a sufficient term of probation, that the
conversion is of the genuine indepeud,

of the state. How inconsistent it would
be for us to nominate a man whose rep
utation is such as given by The Alli
ance of July 0th, and which every per
son knows to be true if at all acquainted
with his tme character. If we must
have law suits let us have the court pre
sided over by a sober judge, and not
have it conducted after the bar room
fashion and continue to disgrace our
district and the state.
Down with old party demagogues,
, brass collared railroad attorneys, and
drunkards, and let us have a pure, tem
perate independent whom we know to
be such by his works, or let us have no
no candidate at all. Independent.
Bro. Hull in Hitchcock County.
Stratton, Neb., Aug. 3, 1891.
Editor Alliance: I thought per
haps a few lines from here in relation
to the Alliance would be appreciated
by your many readers. Bro.. O. Hull,
the state lecturer, was at Trenton last
Friday and delivered a fine lecture to
the people of this county. . Notwith
standing the very busy season of the
year, there was quite a large crowd
present, and all seemed ' very well
pleased with Bo. Hull's speech, wnich
was very ably delivered. At the request
of many here Bro. Hull has consented
to be with us again in the near future,
and all here are glad to hear of it, as
they think Bro. Hull a line speaker.
The Lie About Hon. D. McCall.
Burwell, Neb., July 31, 1891.
Editor Alliance: For some weeks
past the opposition press has been pub
lishing the infamous falsehoods con
cerning the alleged red flag at the Cal
amus celebration in Valley ceunty, Ne
braska. I think it time we take steps
to prove to the public that the state
ments are utterly without foundation,
and gotten up solely for the purpose of
prejudicing those who will not investi
gate the matter. I was one of the
speakers on that occasion, and know,
that the statements are false, and that
the Hon. D. McCall did not utter one
word or syllable that savored in the
least of disloyalty. But on the contrary,
his address was not even abusive oi ex
treme in any particular. I can furnish
the affidavits of at least a dozen inde
pendents who are among the most il lus
trous citizens of this and Valley county,
to the effect that the statements made
in this letter are true, all of which were
present on this occasion, and then I
would like to see the color of the fel
low's bair who will make affidavit to
the contrary. If you desire them I will
undertake the task of getting them.
Please let me hear from you.

previous year of our existence as an

and see more determination and en
thusiasm on the part of our old wheel
horses than ever before. Hope for great
things in the near future.

The writer had the pleasure of a visit
to that home of English Shire and
Hackney horses, the splendid farm of
O. O. Hefner, last week, and was right
royally entertained by the proprietor.
The farm is located in the northeast
suburbs of Lincoln, and its inspection
will repay any one, and all lovers of
the horse can see a display not excelled
by any stock farm in the country.
Col. Hefner has just returned from
England with a large importation in
cluding some prize winners of more
than usual excellence.
In three-year-olds he can show some
of the best animals ever brought to this
country. The followbg four in this
class being worthy of .special mention:
Stuntney Reliance No. 10561, winner of
two prizes In England. Nailstone Bru
no No. 9963; a magnificent bright bay.
Perseverance No. 1267, winner of the
first prize at the Nebraska State Fair
last year, and Tom the Fourth No.10600,
a horse with an English record for
prize winning, having captured threo
prizes before his importation by Mr
Hefner. Another very promising colt
secured by Mr. H. on his last trip is a
brown two-year-old from the Ferry Hill
stud, sired by Vulcan the famous draft
horse of England. He has good bone,
splendid form and action, and gives
promise of making one of the finest
draft horses in this country.
A fine stud of these horses will be on
exhibition at the State Fair and every
one should see them.
Some very fine English coach horses
were shown us, also the famous team of
Hackney mares that are not for sale at
Mr. Hefner has altogether over fifty
head of imported horses on his farm,

motto being, "get the best, any man

return later with another lot of the best
Shires to be found. It will pay any
