There remains yet to be paid bills
amounting to a little over f 100. This
delay is caused by the fact that the
bills had to be returned for corrections
and hrtve not yet been preseutod in
propor shape. '
We have filed with the secretary of
state, as required by law, 41.663 indi
vidual recoipts for provision distribu
ted and 13,662 Individual recoipts for
grain distributed for seed.
The commission distributed the fol
lowing amounts of grain:
Wheat, 57,696 bushels and 45 lbs.;
corn, 88,445 bushels and 15 lbs.; bar
ley, 10,818 bushels; oats, 12,779 bush
els and 8 lbs.; potatoes, 6,680 bushels
and 18 lbs.
Of the above the .following were do
nated, the committee paying the
freight: Wheat, 1,200 bushels; corn,
3,750 bushels; oats, 987 bushels.
Taking the estimates furnished us by
the county clerks of the numbor of
bushels raised from one of sowing: and
using tbe market price as given by our
dealers, we have the following results:
Cash value grain
raised from seed
Wheat ............$ 1,471,218
Total $ 8,559,691
In this accounting none of the sup
plies received or distributed prior to
the passage of the law creating the
commission are included. Nearly
$100,000 worth of grain and provisions
and clothing was thus distributed.
Nor do we make any account of the
large amount of garden seeds distrib
uted. A glance at the book also shows that
four out of every seven families re
ceived supplies cf provisions but twice,

The Meeting at Aurora Last Saturday.
Gkand Island, Neb., Sept. 27, 1891.
Editor Alliance: The picnic at Au
rora yesterday was not a success, as
Uncle Sam and Melbourne and Foster,
with their sinister experiments and in
cantations brought on a drizzling rain
during the previous night which con
tinued all day. Of course that ren
dered an outdoor meeting impossible.
But the farmers of Hamilton county are
too much in earnest to bo entirely baf
fled by rain, and although they reported
asthcy came in that processions from
every direction had turned back when
they found their picnic was Impossible,
enough of them reached town to fill the
Opera house and to have an earnest and
enthusiastic meeting. J. P. Sovereign,
master workman c f the K. of L. of Iowa,
was on hand and gave an ablo and elo
quent address. He gave us pure and
unadulterated "people's independent"
doctrine, and the audience showed
their approval by frequent applause.
The Old Farmer then addressed them
for about an hour and the marked favor
with which his remarks were received
was because the audience knew he was
one of them.
The Edgerton badges went eff like
hot cakes, and the applause with which
every allusion by the speaker to ' Our
Joe'' was received showed plainly
where their votes will be east in Novem
ber. J. II. Powers.
Hartisgton, Neb., Sept. 23, 1891.
Editor Alliance: There is one dan
ger ahead, a fearful breaker on which
we may be dashed in pieces. The num
ber of mortgages made payable in gold
are simply frightful. This is in antici
pation of the free and unlimited coin
age of silver. The capitalists believe
that the moment the free and unlimited
coinage of silver comes in operation
Gresham's law will take effect. This
law is named from its first expounder,
Sir Thomas Gretham of England, the
celebrated diplomat, who lived between
the years 1519 and 1579. This law is
that whenever two metals are legal ten
der, and there is a difference between
the market and mint ratios, '.he cheaper
metal drives out the dearer. For exam

ple, our present silver dollars are coined
in a ratio to gold of 15.938 to 1, 16 in
round numbers. Suppose the ratio in
the bullion market U 20 to 1. Now
when free coinage goes Into effect,
man wnn an ounce 01 cold can take it
to toe mint and exchange It for sixteen
ounces of silver.or take It to the bullion
markot and exchange for twenty ounces
of silver; thon taking sixteen of these
ounces to the mint to be coined, he can
have four ounces of silver left. The
bullion value of gold being greater than
its mint value, gold will be driven out
of circulation. .Now, if Gresham's law
continues to operate, in time the $700,
000,000 of gold In the country will be
driven out of the circulation; and the
demand for gold to satisfy trust deeds
and mortgages payable in that coin will
place gold at a premium, perhaps as
high as during the war ($2.85 to $1.00)
or higher. The enforcement of these
contracts would make us a nation of
serfs. I told that these contracts paya
ble in gold are void as contrary to pub
lic policy, as they discriminate against
the legal tender of this country. 1 have

I have raised this question. I shall take

serfs. How important are our InriioUl

An Enterprising Firm.
Our readers have all heard of the re-
liable firm of N. P. Curtice & Co , of
this city, but not all of them know that
they are one of the largest dealers in
musical instruments in the west. One
ts a better idea of the magnitude of
their business on Investigation of their
mammoth store aud ware-rooms, on
South Eleventh street. From thegenial
manager, Mr. Curtice, we cot the fol
lowing facts coHcerning their recent
importation, the largest by the way ever
brought to Lincoln:
Their ware-room was shown us full
of cases, consisting of Violins, Violin
cello's, Guitars, Accordions, and all
kinds of stpinged and reed instruments
exespt pianos and organs. Also fur
nishings for all instruments. "If any
of your readers want a violin we can
spara one or two" said Mr. Curtice
pointing to the shelves where hundreds
of them had been placed on removal
from the shipping cases. The firm
made their first importation about a
year and a half ago, and as stated above
they have increased with each shipment
until the lait which amounts to over
$5,000 and is the largest ever entered
through the port of Lincoln. The
freight aud duty amounted to over
$700. This firm carries a stock valued
at over $20,000 and do a large and in
Ilandling the very best makes of
pianos and organs, sheet music, band
instruments and all kinds of musical
