THE FARMERS' ALLIANCE, LINCOLN NER. THURSDAY, AUGUST 27, 1891.
DECH3' REPLY TO JOHNSON.
The Grand Master Workman Get Pack
At the Transportation Board.
State Grand Master Workman Deeh
of the Knights of Labor has issued the
following reply to the open letter of J.
W. Johnson of the state beard of trans
portation: Hastings, Neb., Aug. 19.-To J. W.
Johnson, Secretary State Board of
Transportation, Lincoln. Sir: I have
before me your letter of Aug. 17, and 1
hasten to discharge the duty of answer
ing it. I call it a duty because if you
were a private citizen a reply would
not be necessary. A3 you happen, by
the grace of the railroad lobby, to be a
secretary of the state board of trans
portation, I regard it as my duty to take
advantage of tne prominence you nave
assumed to yourself in order that the
people of Nebraska may be reminded
that it is "the pig under the gate which
You say: "In requesting parties to ap
pear before the board and produce
such facts and iigures as they might
have at their command to show why
freight rates should be reduced, the
board had no idea of drawing from yju
a political speech calculated to still fur
ther agitate the already overheated pub
lic mind on the raihoad question."
I believe you. If any one should zeal
ously guard the "public mind" from be
ing "agitated" on the railroad question
in this state you are the man. For I
grant that m the service of the railroads
as a lobbyist and a political writer you
have earned your recompense like a
thoroughbred. With your record before
me I could not for one moment believe'
that you would be guilty of doing any
thing which could incouvenience the
railroad magnates of Nebraska.
Again you say: "We desired to obtain
of freight reduction as well as from the
railroads themselves, a fair, deliberate
and truthful statement of the real fac's
as they exist, in order that the board, as
well as the people of the state, might
pass upon this subject once for all, from
the standpoint of intelligence and rea
son net from the standpoint of political
gossip and partisan hate."
If I believed that statement to be true
I would willingly have appeared before
the board, and 1 think there are many
other men in Nebraska who would have
done likewise did they not believe that
it would be likA 3; - -earls be'
But if I had appeared before the board
mrn as you," I am not ahamei to re
member that in the true situation of
affairs fortune has placed me on the
side of (iod and the people. Acting on
that side it iu mj- duty to criticise
you; but rewerabenng your unhappy
attitude toward God and man it is my
pleasure to pity you.
Yours in dead earnest.

Meeting of Alliance Lecturers and Coun
ty Officers Held at Hastings,
August 19, 1891.
About 150 Alliance men gathered at
the G. A. R. hall, Hastings, w ednesday
morniug, and the following program
was ably aiscussea:
1st- What is the object of the Alliance!
State Lecturer, O. Hull.
2d. How should the meetings of the
Subordinate Alliance be Conducted?
J. H. Powers, Pres. Nat'l Alliance.
3d. What Topics Should be Discussed
and Considered! B. F. Pratt, Asst.
4th. Specitic Duties of County Lectur
ers! J. 11. rowers.
5th. How can we best Maintain an In
terest in the Local Alliances? State
Lecturer, O. Hull.
Cth. Open Meetings-How Conducted!
J. M. Thompson, State Secretary.
Parties to whom topics were assigned
occupied fifteen minutes each, followed
by fi re minute talks from those present.
The meeting was interesting and in
structive throughout and all present
voted it a success.
The following resolution was adopted
and ordered printed:
Resolved, That we appreciate the
kindness o! Silas A. Strickland Post, G.
A. H., in tendering us the use of their
hall for this meeting, and that we here
by tender them our sincere thanks for
the courtesy thus shown.
I would undoubtedly have been sub
jected to tne same discourteous treat
ment as was accorded to C. G. Dawes,
who, in addition to having his quarrel
just, came ripe with information on the
iniquitous freight rates. Never before,
even in the history of Nebraska, were
enacted scenes so disgraceiul as at the
Lincoln session of that body when the
board of transportation, flanked on
either side by shrewd railroad attor
neys, made sport of the citizens who
did call to protest against the railroad
You say that in the last legislature
"they actually introduced a bill which
would have raised the rates, were ready
to pass it and only discovered the mis
take by the assistance of a railroad
man." But your statement is not true.
It is a well-known fact that when the
Newberry bill was introduced that your
masters took many advantages of the
fact that the independent representa
tives were not as far advanced in "ways
that are dark and tricks that are vain"
as the men who were employed to hood
wink them. By shrewd manipulation
they slipped in a freight schedule which
did increase the present rate, but it was
not a railroad man who called attention
to the fraud. They are not built that
way. It was John M. Moan, of Dakota
county, who first called attention to the
shamelessness of the railroad lobby.
If he was a railroad man, he was of a
different brand from that which Ne
braska has had to deal with in the past.
If you, my friend, were as zealous in
the statement of fact as you were, in
the campaign of 1800 in the statement
of fiction, you would acknowledge that
the state board of transportation has no
more idea of dealing justly with the
freight rate question than a railroad
lobbyist has of the nang of conscience.
If you desired to be a patriotic public
official you would shake oil the uhackles
which are riveted upon your wrists and
take a stand for an actual reduction of
freight rates. Instead of wasting your
time in an empty show of obtaining
evidence to ascertain if freight rates are
too bi;jh, you would take advantage of
the ample evidence you already possess
and move lor a speedy reduction of
these rates. You know and I know
that around tne capital building the
state board of transportation is con
ceded to be a huge joke and their "rate
investigations" session a rediculous
farce. The same full appreciation of
that body is entertained by the people,
who have learned lone ago that a man
cannot be appointed a secretary of that
board unless he meets with the approval
01 tne railroad ease. 1 ou know and 1
kuow that the members of that board
in their official capacity are living a lie
and in their present riaiculous parade,
only calling public attention to their
shameless disregard of public duty.
I have no reply to make to your per
sonal attack upon myself. Undoubtedly
we both are human, and hence are
weak. I never felt disposed to thank
God that I was not like other men, but
when I remember the record you have
made in Nebraska I am prompted to
feel grateful that I have neither the
mind nor disposition to be of service to
the cause to which your life saems ded
icated. The people ot the Second dis
trict remember you as the man who
made savage and continued assault
through the columns your paper on the
farmers of the state.
You were merciful to them only as
your bitter assaults helped to part the
waters and make a pathway to lead
them out of bondage. You were fair to
them only as Pilate was fair to the
Master. You spoke true of them only
as Ananias made a proud record for
truth and veracity. But the farmers of
Nebraska do not enjoy a monopoly of
your hate. They share your contempt
with the Creator of us all. We who
know you well remember that in the
same breath with which vou have con
demned those who under the beneficence
of God's blessing s upon the ballot are
endeavoring to obtain enact justice,
that in that same breath you have
boldly and publicly disputsd the right
of God to rule and the title of the Savior
to the gratitude of the world. We
know that yon sit idly in an office sus
tained by the taxes collected from ti
Christian people, and while the hours
away in the attempt to foster the vil
lainous principles of infideliiv. We
know that you were a railroad lobbyist
at the last session of the legislature and
obtained your present ollice because the
railroad magnates knew they could
We know that from you the railroads
have nothing to fear and the people
nothing to expect.
So, when, in reference to myself, vou
say: "The republican party has stood
for thirty years between the business
interests of this country and just such
The Snide Board and the Genuine Cap
pers. On the 19th the Snide board of trans
portation held a round up at Kearney.
The same precious gang of U. P., B. &
M., Elkhorn andM.P. attorneys, with a
few of their free-pass cappers, that met
at Lincoln, were present at Kearney.
The Kearney chamber ot commerce
wa? on. (ap as usual with a paper which
was presented by its secretary, patting
the railroads, and saying that freight
charges were faif and equitable, A. J.
Gustin, Hon. JohnBarnd, H. H. Seeley.
and Mr. Miller, all of Kearney, pre
sented the case of the people.
But at Kearney, as at Lincoln, the
people generally entirely ignore the
board. They regard it with utter con
tempt, They understand very well
that it is a snide and a fraud, got up by
the roads to hoodwink the people into
a belief that there is an authority which
will redress their complaints. It is too
gross that this board should be main
tained at the expense of the people to
furnish places to reward political bum
mers and renegades. Mr. Dech, in a
letter which, we publish this week, has
curried one of the secretaries of the
precious body nicely. There is another
one who holds his place on the board as
a reward for political treachery a man
who is as much a traitor as the senator
who ran away, and who in fact was one
of the aiders and abettors in that one's
treachery. If the gentleman wanes u?
to publish his name with a collection of
facts we will do it for the asking. Any
thing to accommodate.
We want our readers to remember
that it is the so-called republican party,
but really the republican railroad ma
chine, that maintains this vile tax-eat
ing excrescence in existence.

Good News from Logan County.
Gandy, Neb., Aug. 23, 1891.
Hon. Jay Burrows : "Fear not," the
great common people of Nebraska are
with you, and while their financial 3up
port may not have been all that might
have been expected their confidence in
TnE Alliance and its editor is un
bounded. I know whereof I speak.
Your character is indelibly stamped
upon the hearts of a grateful people.
.Nothing can marr that impress except
your own deliberate acis. They will
accept no other sign.
We have our little Independent on its
feet. We hope to solidify our ranks
with it and will carry the grand princi
ples of the new party to a successful
issue or go down with colors flying.
I notice a stiong difference of opin
ion between vou and Mr. Thonton on
certain measures. I hope there will be
no open breach no hostility. Our
correspondent need have no fear. Ed.
The democrats and republicans are
talking of combining in our county. If
they do there will be an exodus of hon

them anyhow, if they don't. We'll snow
them under provided we get a clean,
able ticket; so they'll "be damned if
they do and they'll be damned if they
don't." Hard situation isn't it?
Can support our state ticket enthusiastically.
Ever yours for the triumph of the

Gentlemen and Fellow Citizens: I
thank you more than words of mine can
tell for the high honor jou have con
ferred upon me in nominating me as a
candidate for constable for the city of
Lincoln. I hope and trust that I shall
ever prove to be worthy of your respect
and confidence; for I have motives and
ambitions far higher than a mere scram
ble for office the elevation and eno
bling of my race is the goal of my am
bition. Cheers. We, the colored
peoplo of Lincoln, have become eick
and tired of our political slavery and
we have enunciated a new proclama
tion of emancipation tremendous
cheering, and we declare that we will
no longer be used as political tools to
place men and parties in power only
to ignore us and spurn us with contempt
and loathing. Here the speaker ad
vanced a step or two forward, and
partly crouching he assumed the daring
attitude of a b-ast at bay and then hissed
these seething, burning firebrands at an
imaginary foe before him: When we
call upon thorn for what is due us, yes,
d-u-e us, as members of that party to
t. hich we belonged, the convention
at this point went fairly wild with en
thusiasm and Warwick was cheered to
the echo. This seemed to inspire him
with a greater energy and ho straight
ened himself, quickened his words to a
pace of earnestness and continued. We
poor black men believe the time has
come when a man's politics shall no
longer be known by the color cf his
skin. We intend to vote and support
that party which will recognize us as
citizens of the United States loud
cheering that party which is willing
to return favor for favor cheers
that party which, knows no north, no
south, no east, ho west, but one flesh.
all of us, as the fjreat God has created
us to dwell together for mutual advance
ments aad benefits; that party that will
give us a free and impartial administra
tion; and lot me tell you, my colored
brethren, thai 1 beltevethat the people's
independent party is the party tbat
give us just such a square deal. Pan
demonium here broke loose and the del
egates howled with delight, and the
'.spectatoss joined in the cheering. The
sneaker Held tne word nrmiy in ms
teeth and began again in the same
spirit of earnestness a free and fair
administration. In the pat we have
been ever faithful to the repuolican
partv. Year atter year we have gone
to the polls and cast our votes for the
glory and success 01 that party, and
what do we get in return for this faith
ful servitude? In the state of Nebraska
we have received nothing in return,
not one poor, little, single appointive
ollice in any of the state institutions ex
cept 1a the state bouse, and that is the
exalted position of janitor. And to se
cure this position we had to sign a pe
tition long enough to elect any man to
congress with the votes signed to that
document, and this we seat to the gov
ernor y-e-s, all this we nad to do :n
order to get a jod lor one 01 our race as
a spittoon cleaner at the capitol. Long,
loud and continued applause followed
this arraignment of republican ingrati
tude and treachery to the republican
Down at the court house a colored man
was at work and they told him ho would
have to quit for want of funds to pay
him with. He quit, of course. But the
next day a white man took his place. I
wonder where they get the funds to pay
him with? I wonder where they will
get the votes to keep in power this same
base crew of ingrates to the loyal part
of the republican party in Lancaster
county? I tell you, my white brethren,
this hurts the poor colored man. It is
not so much the actual loss of the posi
tion, or the revenues from the ollice 01
spittoon cleaner in the court house or
capitol, but the very deed itself, the
motive and the littleness of it cuts to
the very quick and burns away down
deep and into our very souls: and now
we crv aioud and raise up in ourmieht.
and with our bailots we will declare
and swear that we will bend our necks
to the yoke no longer; no more will we
bare our backs and calmly take the
partv lash and say we have no use or
being except to serve corrupt masters
who Know us onlv to use us. We are
not cattle poor dumb brutes or beasts
of burden, but men made in tho image
of God. and He will and ought to des
pise and loathe us if we fail to use the
talents lie eave us.
"And, my friends, this condition of
affairs among the colored people is not
confined alone to Lancaster county.
All over this country from the great
lak'js to the gulf, from ocean to ocean
there comes the same sad crv of politi
cal slavery from our people, and it is
the same wall of discontent, the same
writhing in moral bondage from the
fetters forged by the two great parties
upon the votes and labor of the colored
American citizens. Nearly thirty years
ago we were released, as a people, from
human slavery. We thought then thai
tho sun of our glory and advancement
had risen to shine brighter and brighter
until at last we would become recog
nized as of some value to mankind ex
cept as an article of commerce. We
have seen that sun sink from sight be
hind a cloud of dark despair and gloomy
foreboding, and we wondered whether
our sun of happiness had set, our hopes
had gone, never to be realized by us
again. As these clouds arose we began
to kick, and we kicked and ended the
matter with our kicking. For thirty
years we have kept up this kicking, but
all to no avail. But now we kick and
move and act, and we have kicked off
the political harness in Lancaster coun
tv, and we, the colored voters of Lin
coin, are going to vote for the party
that recognizes us as citizens. Here
after we are going to have something to
sav about the kind of harness we will
wear. As this is a government of the
people, by the people and for the people
we are going to show all parties that we
are the people, and our votes will show
it when we help elect the independent
ticket this fall. Here the convention
went wild again with cheers and laugh
ter. We demand, we petition and sup
licate no more, that we have a chance
along with tha rest of the American
people, applause, for everybody
knows that we are thoroughly Amer
ican, and not one of our raco has eyer
been branded as a traitor, and there
never will be a Benedict Arnold among
us. If, gentlemen, this new party does
its duty by us you will always find us
true and loyal, faithful ever until the
end of time. I thank you for my race
for this great honor, and I accept your
