THE BEE ROASTS GERE.
And a Very Good Roast it is.
The following appears in the Bee of
Monday under the heading "Should be
"The late ex-Governor David Butler
presented to Charles H. Gere the origi
nal plant of the Nebraska State Journal.
Its editor had neither the ability nor the
money to own or build up a newspaper.
From the day it was started until now it
has subsisted upon the gratuities of cor
porations and politicians and the cor
ruption incident to their manipulations.
Without its extensive job depaartnient,
supported chiefly from the funds of tho
peoplo and the priuting of the railroads,
tho newspaper could not exist. It is re
cognized in Lincoln as the organ of local
corruptionists and ringsters and in the
state it is regarded as the mouthpiece of
the B. & M. railroad. It scarcely ever
takes an honest, candid position upon
any local or state topic, but is conducted
solely for self and the benefit of the bind
ery and power presses in the Journal
buildiDg, Its owners have been enriched
at the expense of their manhood and I he
state has been regularly mulcted to
make them arrogant.
The editor of the Journal has always
been a supp.e tool of the capito!, peni
tentiary and other rings. He hp.s licked
the boots cf every man who has ever
been in a public position who would con
tribute business to the Journal company
or aid his ambition. He has been con
sistent only in this particular. A more
sellish, unblushing political parasite than
Gere has never achieved prominence in
Nebraska affairs. A man who will stoop
lower to do the bidding of corporation
masters th:tu this same Gere has never
been given a place in a state convention .
Charles H. Gero has long been the res
ident regent of the Nebraska university,
and in this capacity he has been known
chiefly as a trimmer wh would sacrifice
the dignity of his oflico and bring dis
grace upon his associates by trickery in
awarding contracts, by perfidiously
abandoning his friends in the face of
probable victory, and by a constant ef
fort to secure job work for his printing
establishment. There has never been
an oflice with a salary attached which
could be held without releasing his hold
upon the printing pap of the state which
Gere was unwilling to take. As a mem
ber of both houses of tho legislature he
was always in the railroad and appro
priation camps. As a secretary of the
railroad commission ho was not content
with serving the railroads, but in a cow
ardly manner sought to strike down the
benefactor and friend who gave him his
position. When a better man was a can
didate for postmaster it was this parasite
that plucked the plum.
This contemptible traitor to all that is
honorable in public life, this miserably
r.varicious parasite who never earned an
honest dollar by honest labor in his life,
this pampered pet of the corporations,
this creature who has fattened upon
state contracts at the public expense,
this utterly conscienceless political hy
pocrite has the infinite assurance to
deny the Bee and its editor the right to
adviso the republican party of Nebraska
as to its duties in the coming campaign.
It is this tool of corporations and advo
cate of all the jbs ever perpetrated, or
that have been attempted at Lincoln
since the state was admitted to the union,
who presumes, in the absence of Mr.
Rosewater, to call in question his loyalty
to tho republican party. There is no
danger of Charles H. Gere being again
eiected to a state oflice, but the people
of Nebraska must be nauseated by the
fellow's unblushing cheek."
Subscribe for The Alliakce.
We invite gpeclal attention to our
proposition in this week's Issue for
subscription to place The Allukcb in
the hands tlTitenty Thousand republican
and democratic inters of this state. We
will do this for four thousand dollars;
and this sum should be easily raised by
friends of the reform movement. There
should be four thousand men spring up
at once and plant one dUr each for
this purpose. But while we can hardly
expect this, many will send muc h more.
We have a'i eady received many orders
for the pap r on this principle.
All subsr .iptions under this proposi
tion will be acknowledged weekly in
Remember our object is to reach those
republicans arid democrats who will
not themselves take independent papers.
There is more rejoicing in heaven over
one sinner that repenteth than over
n'nety and nine who are already saved.
There is no time to lose in this work.
There are still thousands of republicans
and democrats who are in utter dark

The Gulf Railroad.
Minden, Neb., Sept. 22, 1891.
F. M. Sands, of Alliance, Neb., ad
dressed a mass-meeting of the citizens
of Mindea and Kearney county, Satur
day, Sept. 20, ably setting forth the ad
vantage of the proposed railroad from
the Dakotas to the Gulf. His plan is
for the states of Kansas, Nebraska and
Texas to build a double track road to
be owned and run in the interout of the
wealth producers of these states. Mr.
Sands handled his subject well and
gave much valuable information on tho
transportation question, not generally
to the credit of those who have been
controlling our state in the past He
was followed by Mr. J. L. McPheeley,
our late county attorney, and he mado
made a few well-chosen remarks favor
ing this road as a first step towards gov
ernmental ownership. Hon. Joel Hull,
who has been from Dakota to Galves
ton in a buggy, along the proposed
route (in the interest of a similar pro
ject) save many interesting facts on the
subject, and although his first project
failed he seemed not a bit discouraged
and stoutly affirms that this or a simi
lar rol w'ill be built at no distant day.
Mr. Sands will speak at Norman on
Mondav, and as the people there are al
ready deeply interested we expect he
will arouse Iheir enthusiasm. Jf the
rest of the people along the proposed
route are as earnest as we are here this
people's road to our natural market
would soon bo an accomplished fact,
and when once the people build and
own one road furnishing transportation
at cost, governmental ownership of all
public highways will soon be demanded
in a voice which will brook no denial.

A Live County.
Few counties in the state can show
any more or aggressive work in connec
tion with the Alliance than Lancaster
county. The meetings of the County
Alliance are representative of the inter
est felt by the local organizations, being
well attended and uniformly interesting
and instructive. The nexi regular meet
ing will be held at the usual place in
this city, on Friday, Oct. 3nd, and will
be one of special importance. Every
Alliance in the county should be repre
sented by its full number of delegates,
thus insuring success in all its under
takings. The question of mutual insurance ha?
been before the Alliance here for some
time aud arrangements have been com
pleted for the organization of a com
pany under the auspices and control of
the County Alliance.
J. I. CASE THRESHING MACHINE
An Alliance representative called
at the establishment known as the J. I.
Case headquarters, situated on X and
Eleventh street. He found Mr. States,
the genial proprietor, seated at his desk.
When asked as to the number of ma
chines on exhibition at the state fair, ho
gave tho following: "We had three
complete outfits and sold four complete
outfits." This company has been lo
cated in our city for about twelve years,
and their sales have continued to in
crease until last year they amounted in
this state alone to 300 complete outfits,
besides about 75 engines. They-also
transferred to other states 230 machines.
This is certainly a good showing, and
fully demonstrates that the public is
well pleased with their manager, Mr.
States, who appears to be a gentleman
who has ai eye to business aud a rustler
of the lirst water. That he has held his
position so long with the company ar
gues that he has given them entire sat
isfaction. And The Alliance is pleased
to recommend him and the company
to its readers as a reliable urm.
THE HUBER ENGINE AT THE FAIR
The Huber engines manufactured at
Marion, Ohio, by the Huber Manufac
turing Company attracted a great deal
of attention at the state fair this year.
They claim for this engine special ad
vantages on account of its peculiar con
struction and guarantee it to do more
work with less fuel, and be more easily
operated than any other engine made.
As a traction eugine it is very powerful,
and will haul larger loads through mud
and across plowed fields than any on
the market. Their threshing machinery
is all lirst-class and worthy of inves
tigation by every one interested. Mr.
A. McMulLnof Omaha, Neb., their gen
eral agent for Iowa and Nebraska is a
gentleman of la go business experience
and is building up a good trade through
out Nebraska for these popular goods.
The Farmers' Alliance welcomes all
such companies to our state and wishes
the Huber success.
Tram lb CblraffO Kvenliif T"M, 'ikt
The lalMt wrrioe rendered to the!
public by the Inter Ocean, Is by no maans
the least. It Is thus described in the
editorial columns of our eutcrprlsing
contemporary, except for the italics,
which are ou.'own:
The Inter Ocean of to-day (Sunday)
prints the response of a very large
number of employer of labor to question
which it propouuded to them concern
ing the effect of legislation upon the re
muneration of labor.
It is possible that a few persons have
not yet found time to peruse the ten
columns in which these responses are
bet forth. For their benefit we reprint
the following from the Inter Ocean's ed
itorial article, if only to show how end- j
ncntly satisfactorily the inquiry proved:
But the Inter Ocean rejoice in the
overwhelming preponderance of testi
mony in favor of a protective policy
which its ouestions have elicited. It re
joices in tne vast amount of evidence
wh'.ch it is permitted to educe as to the
prosperous condition of labor, the ever im
proving quality ana uecreasing prica e.i
American goods, the ever widening area
of comfort and of intellectual development
that lies sic before and around the lease
earner of the United States.
From the fact that our neighbor con
fined its inquiries exclusively to the
"employers of labor" we take the liber
ty to infer that it contemplates a further
investigation in which responses will be
sought from employes to the same
questions which were propounded to
the employers. If the Inter Ocean be
not weary of well doing and find itself
equal to such an inquiry, it cannot be
gin more profitably than by taking up
a report rendered to the Trade and La
bor Assembly by a committee who had
been appointed to investigate the
"sweaters" shops in Chicago. We ap
pend a partial summary of the report,
taken from an obscure corner in this
morning's Inter Ocean:
The condition of the places visited
was terrible. Over-crowding, long
hours and low pay was the rule. Gins
of ten years of age were found to be
working ten and twelve hours a day for
80 cenis per week. TeB girls were
found, none being over ten years of ago,
that worked ten hour a dy for 75 ceuts
to $1.20 a week. In a DeKoven street
den were found a half dozen men work
ing eighteen hours a day for from $4 to
$9 per week. At 168 Maxwell street
were found ten men that worked six
teen hours a day each and received $0.50
to $9 per week. In the same place were
six girls working from twelve to four
teen hours a day, whose weekly pay
was $3. One child was found in the
house that worked for 75 cents per
week. At 455 South Canal street a girl
was found who declined to tell what she
received fearing she would be dis
charged, and dischargo meant starva
tion. At 63 Judd street tho wages of
the men were found to be from $5 to $9
per week, and one child there received
$1 per week. The women worked four
teen hourj a day.
And much more to the same purpose
We forbear to quote at greater length
lest we should dull the edge of tho Inter
Qcean'r zest So explaining anew "the
ever widening area of comfort and of
intellectual development that lies before
and - around the wage earner of the
United States of America."
We Predict More Rain Next Year.
Members of the Alliance are flocking
to the republican clubs of Kansas. It
was nothing out a shower, after all.
The Bible story relates that for some
time after the raius fell and the waters
rose the deluded people consoled them
selves with the reflection that it "was
nothing but a shower, after all." The
republican managers are the deluded
peoplo this time, if they imagine that
the "shower," as they are pleased to
torm the great western defection, is over.
The issues this year are not so great,
vital or absorbing as they were last jear.
No congressmen arc to be elected and
in Nebrask?. or Kansas no gubernatorial
nor legislative light is on. There is not
much to call out an independent move
ment. It is i.ot an easy matter to arouse
interest in such minor struggles as we
have on hand this year in the western
states, but when the next year rolls
around tho Minneapolis Tribune and all
other organs of republicanism in the
west wilt discover that the "shower," as
they term it, is not over by a good deal.
An Outside Democratic View.
Nebraska furnishes the best means of
measuring tho force and vitality of this
movement because there it has been
whclly free from complications with
either of the two old parlies. At the
outset it there took the shape of an in
dependent state orginization for politi
cal reform. And in Nehrask.: to-day
the numbers and aggressiveness of these
independents are causing the republican
politicians serious concern. They are
in dead eainest and will doubtless bo
heard from in grea'. numbers at the polls.
From Antelope County.
The following extract is taken from a
private letter to the editor:
"S. C. Fairchild county organizer
spoke to a large audience at Elgin on
the 19th inst. The people gave good at
tention for two hours and still they
wanted to near more.
Praise God the people are awake at
last and the two old twin partie.'i can't
mesmerize them any more, they have
lost their grip. Now Bro. Editor pour
in the grape aud canister; they are on
tho dead run end their little fellows are
crying "dictator," "anarchist" But
heed them not uor lowr your guns till
they cry out from the very depth of their
souls, u tjon: let tho rocks ana the
hills hide us from the face of tho poor
widows and orphans that we, by our
national banking system, railroad and
and class legislation, have robbed, beg
gared and pauperized.' Never let up
till the two old twin plutocratic parties

loving, free American votes that they
with all their Wall street bnodlcrs will

We clip the above from that able aud
fearless paper, The Great West. There
lias long been evidences of juggling with
this mortgage business. The Omaha
Board of Trade socurod the r.ppointtnent
of E. F. Test, of that city, as census ex
aminer to obtain information as to the
mortgage indebtedness of this state; and
it was heralded abroad that as soon as
an investigation could be made the ca
lamity howlers would be put down.
Well, Gen. Test has made his examina
tion. Why does ho not report? If the
mortgage indebtedness of this stato was
placed too high let us know it. We
know that Gen. Test made an investiga
tion in Gage county. If the result was
favorable to tho shylocks they would
make no delay iu giving tbe Information.
Foster's Weather Forecasts.
St, JosErn, Sept. 20. A remarkable
period of great storms will occur dur,
the first half of October that will be sur
passed only by those that will occur in
March, 1803. There will be three
storm waves during this storm period
which will cros the continent from
west to east along the usual storm cen
ter routes. The first of these storm
waves will be most severe in the Mis
sissippi valley and the last onj on the
Atlantic coast. The first of these storm
waves will bo due to leave the Pacific
co tst about Sept. 80, cross the Rocky
Allegheny valley from Oct. 1 to 3, and
reach the Atlantic coast about the 4th.
On the 2d this storm vtivo will be cross
ing the Mississippi riv;r not far from
St. Louis, and will then be of very con
siderable force in Illinois and Missouri.
Accompanying this storm wave may be
expected tornadoes, cloudbursts, hail
and severe gales and within one or two
days following it killing frosts will visit
most localities uorth of latitude 80, with
a strong probability of frosts much fur
ther south. Hurricanes will develop
great for jo ou the North Atlantic at this
time, but 1 cannot give their exact loca
tion, but they will probably be not rar
east of the West Indies. These hurri
canes will become very fierce along the
Atlantic coast from 1st to 18th of Octo
ber. These October storms will indi
cate what the coming winter will be.
I expect very great s.orms from the 1st
of October to the last of March, aud if
this period of storms covering the first
half of October proves to be of more
than usual foice it will indicate that I
have not miscalculated the weather, ar d
we may then confidently expect a very
cold, severe and stormy winter, setting
in quite early. Saturn will pass its
equinox the last of October, and to that
influence I attribute the great increase
of storms since the middle of last May.
