THOSK B.IXK CIRCULARS.
A an Uluslration of tha cauipai?i of
lying that has just pasM-d, publish
the to'lowicg authenticated fact from
the Chicago Sthtinel as to the eamo
kind of work that was done in former
years, and who paid for it:
The old party press have had the im
pudence to question the authenticity of
the Buell and Ilazzard circulars. Let
them keep on asserting that "they are
bogus;" that they are "the indentions of
the hat lunatics," etc. They are simply
making a rope with which to strangle
their own lying gullets.
The American Association of Bank
ers was organized in September, 1877.
Its secretary at that time was one James
Buell. The association still exists. It
is still at work bribing newspapers,
hiring eloquent oratorical liars, bull
dozing courts and congressmen. It is
btill doing business at the same old
stand and in the same old way.
Before us lies one of the 1877 "circu
lars." Perhaps the Inter Ocean will
deny its authenticity. Will it? It
shows how the old greenback party
was made to suffer. It shows how tho
third party is being made to suffer. Il
accounts for the spiteful, malicious and
wholesale lying that is baing done by
the whole craft of prominent dailies
about tfce third party. JVe ask again
will the Inter Ocean deny that it ever
published such an article? At all events,
here it is:
New York, Oct. 9, 1877.
Private and Suggestive.
Dear Sir: It is advisable to do all in
your power to sustain such daily and
weekly prominent newspapers, espec
ially the religious aud agricultural
press, as will opposo the issue of green
back paper money, and that you also
withhold patronage or favors from all
applicants who are not willing to oppose
the greenback or government issue of

ers and we have a copy received by a
The following circular was published
iu the Inter Ocean. Concerning it the
. 0. said:
Tho Inter Ocean acknowledges the ro
ceipt of the fallowing circular document
which came to our office from New
York Saturday morning:
"The American Bankers' As'n, )
No. 247 Broadway, Room 4. V
New York, Oct. 9, 1877. )
Dear Sir: Please insert the inclosed
slip as leaded matter on the editorial
page of your first issue immediately fol
lowing the receipt of this and send
maiked copy with bill to yours truly,
James Buell, Secretary,
247 Broadway, Room 4.
Comments on the slip not to exceed
half a column will be paid for, if billed
at the same time."
The following is the document which
we are asked (says tho . (? ) to insert as
leaded matter on the editorial page, or
in other words, as a statement made by
the Inter Ocean:
'The greenback party has offered
through Sis managers to sell out to the
democrats and hereafter to work in
democratic harness, if a place for a few
of their leaders can be provided for
them. This merely shows how much
dependence there is to be placed on the
leaders of lunatics, who clamor for
money based on nothing.'
We insert this, but we shall send no
bill for it. We shall send no bill, be
cause in tho first place we don't follow
directions about leading it. and, second
ly, because we are compelled to say
that we don't believe a word of the
statement to be true. The attempt to thus
maliciously defame the character of the
greenback party without submitting a
word of proof is a r,iece of shameless
and brazen effrontery which ought to
be beneath any body of commercial
gentlemen and especially the American
Here is another, said to have been
sent to the New York Sun, which says:
"The following was received yester
day at the office of the Sun:

Please insert the enclosed slip as ed

"TI.e prospect is that in six months
there will not be a greenback leader in
all the land. Overtures have been
made by the leaders of the greenback
movement to President Hayes to aban
don the greenback as a lost cause, pro
viding he will give good official posi
tions to about twenty of the most blatant
of the clamorous for more money that
is based on nothing."
Editok Farmers Alliakch : The
old party papers are making an extra
effort at the present time to make the
people believe that the People's Inde
pendent party are advocating such a
money as there is at present in the Ar
gentine Republic, and I would like ft
few lines of space in your paper to show
how far that is from the truth. The Ar
gentine currency is the product of a
plan by the aristocrat class of Europe
to rob the people of that country of the
product of their toil. It has been truly
said that that country has been for
years the pasture ground of the British
money power. They have had their
own way in almost every thing regard
ing the finance of that country, and the
result is the same as they would do for
us, only probably in a different way if
we continue to let them handle the lead
ers of the law-making powers in this
country. Tbey have in tho Argentine
Ropublic $190,000,000 of currency based
on alleged coin wheu there is no coin.
They also have $100,000,000 of currency
which they call land or mortgaga loan
currency. It is not redeemable only by
foreclosure which is very expensive and
assists very little at keeping it at par.
Not a dollar of this money is receivable
in the revenues of the government. It
is not a legal tender, aud there are very
few of ti?e debts that are not payable in
coin. So that the debt is doubled and
trebled, and is made that much harder
to pay. Any sane man must know that
we are not advocating such a money
here, for we ask and demand that all
money shall be a full legal tender good
for all debts. We demand that the gov
ernment issue the money, and not the
private banks. That it be issued at a
much less rate of interest than the
banks charge at present, or in a word
that the government treat all alike.
But through the insatiate greed of the
monev power they try to convii t us of
tbh-ir u. I m y call it a ri line lor u
to rrit ci- the act ons of the office
holder. They say we are fanatic,
calamity liowlvr, demagogues, etc., if
we fck Lr a t haujw. The;' do not mean
whrt thev say. tor they know we are
right. They tire some one who has iu
fl jence to do their dirty work, such as
writing lies fjr tho newspapers, etc.

legislation against the people, and every
truth that is told him he will deny with

We will have a good chance now dur
ing the next session of congress to let
the whole people know what we believe,
as our worthy congressmen will make
themselves heard in Washington, and
no sooner will our principles be under

mand from every honest heart that
they bet enacted into law. Next fall we
can rill the White House with men

Some Facts From McCook.
McCook, Neb., Nov. 15, 1891.
J. Burrows, Dear Sir : Now that
the fight is o' er and the result known,
lot us try aud find our mistakes and
avoid them in the future. In this county
Boodle of all kinds has been used with
a lavish hand, and the influence of the
B. & M. was used for all there was in it.
That has been the stock in trade of the
Reiublican party, and with it they have
won. Yes, they had one otler weapon,
aud they used it well through their
papers and on the streets. Lies, Lies,
LIES, of all kinds. They did not dare
to meet the Independents and discuss
the issius fail 1 v.
I enclose ouieial returns of county
and make a few explanations. Last
year Richards had 713, Powers 000 aud
Boyd 392, or a total of 1703. This year
is folly 125 less. Tho vote on sonator
and surveyor is probably very near the
actual pxrty vote, as there was no elec
tioneering done iu either office. The
larger vote for senator being done in
this county. I refer especially to clerk
and treasurer, two as good men as there
is in the party. Wo iulepeudentswould
like vou to give us digest of election re
turns from other states as you get them,
as there is but littlo faith to be put iu
the old party press these days.
1 waut to say a few good words for
your paper, The Farmers Alliance.
1 have lounU it at all tunes a fair, hon
est aud truthful paper, ready to ac
knowledge a wrong, to recognize hon
esty in an honorable opponent, and to
strike hard for the right. In fact it is
what we tarmer3 want a paper that
wo can rely on. The facts are the best
weapons we can have, and there are
plenty of them if tho people ouly.see
them right. o give us tacts ana let the
other fellows print the lies, aud we will
hopo that like chickens both will come
I am yours, very respectfully,
Henry II. Pickins.
P. S. Don't make mistake and pub
lish any of this.
We really cannot see that publishing
the above will be n mistake. We want
facts, and we want every one to know
how our people feel since election. We
have yet to find the independent who is
faint-hearted or cast down, or who pro
poses to abandon the fight. We beg
Mr. Pickins' pardon for disobeying his
injunction. Ed. Alliance. ,
A Trick That Didn't Work.
Battle Creek, Neb., Nov. 8, '91.
Editor Alliance Now that tho
election is over, and tho enemy claims
a victory, we can see where we have
been over -confident, and consequently
careless. While on the other hand both
old parties watched every chance and
tried every scheme to defeat us. We
had an illustration of this election day.
An old man known ns Undo Billy
Smith wanted to vote the independent
ticket. Not being able to read or write,
he took a sample ticket to a democrat
neighbor f.sking him to mark the inde
pendeut names so he could vote as he
wished. But the wily neighbor marked
all democrat caudidates and sent the
old man to vote. The judge, however,
knew Billy to be independent, and ex
plained the fraud. So that little trick
did not work. But it teaches a Ictson
we should learn well before next
From an Anxious Democrat.
Union, Neb., Nov. 19, 1891.
Editor Farmers' Alliance: Please
tell us democrats what we shall do to
bo saved. Our nominees for state
officers left ks without a state ticket.
Can we afford to give up everything
and go over body and soul to the party
of protection and railroad monopoly?
Moi.ey was brought down to this town
from the county seat and put into the
hands of democrats to vote Post, and
succeeded in polling at .least two-thirds
of the vote for republicans. Boyd
failed to capture the railroads, but the
railroads captured the democrats. But
I cannot believe the rank and file have
gone there to stay. When they come to
consider the situation they must see
that they have piaved a game of give'
away, and so far as the old organized
democratic party is concerned she has
gone up. iu Nebraska at least. The
money loaners, railroad men and
hangers on will of course stay with the
republicans where they belong. But
the farmers ought to have more sense
thau'to fall down ana worship monopo
lies instead of finding a home anion"
justice and reform.

CARNETS FOR RUBIES.
4 rVladnliihU L1r' lUrent rarebits
A sister of Pr. Samuel G. Dixon, of
tho Ac:ulemy of Natural Sciences, and
daughter of Isaao Dixon, recently
walked into the establishment of a
lapidary on Chestnut street, says tho
Fhiladc-plua Press. She had on one
of her lingers a very beautiful ring
with t'.reo precious clones, one of
which was a water-whito diamond.
Tho other two precious stones were
what she supposed were pigeon-blood
Oriental rubies. A pigem-blood Ori
ental ruby is tho most costly gem in
the world. A five-carat ruby of this
kind is worth ten times ns much as a
live-carat lin-t-water Brazilian dia
mond, which Is tha most precious
spo. lea of diamonds in the world.

to tho man skilled in discerning tho
qualities of precious stones. She took
the ring oft her linger nnd hnnded it
to the lapidary. 'J ho latter adjusted
his monocular and went to the light of
the window, lie looked intently for a
minuto or so and then returned.
"Were those Btonos bought for
rubies?'' queried ho anxiously.
I "Yes. I wanted two pigeon-blood
Oriental rubies oa either sido of this
water-white diamond, and. not being
able to get tho finest in this country.
I sent to Paris for them. hy, nron t
they pigeon-blood Oriental rubies P"
was the troubled reply.
The lnpidiil'y looked at them once
more tind seriously said: "No; they
aro not. They are, however, tho liu
est kind of Oriental garnets and are
worth about $20 apiece."
The young lady stepped back in sur
prise. ihe gems mm cost about
2, 000. Ono of tho best jewelry lirms
in Tans had recommended tho house
from which the alleged rubies had
come. The lapidary was positive
that his decision was correct, und he
advised them to bo returned to tha
Parisian jewelry firm.
l'ho young lady went to a notary
with the lapidary. Tho two garnets
wei'0 removed from the ring and care
fully sealed in a package. Tho lapi
dary niada an affidavit that these
stones wefe Oriental garnets and not
pigeon-blood Oriental rubies. This
affidavit was inclosed in tha package
nnd tho package shipped back to tho
Tho noxt maU steamer from France,
after tho receipt of tho allogod rubies
and the affidavit brought 2,000 from
the jewelry house and a letter ac
knowledging regretfully that the
stones wcro only Oriental garnets.

that they had been deceived them

Artificial Vs. Natural Ice.
The icemen in New York City who

sumers terribly wnea ice was scarce

of tho situation several companies
were formed for the purpose of manu

dealers out of tho market completely.
They aro making ico in blocks of ,100
pounds from distilled water, which is
therefore pure, and they are selling
it at wholesale for twenty cents a

tho trade of the great hotels and mar

made iho of to weigh tho natural ice
have been given up.
