Calhoun, as the Platte Center
Argus points out, advises the independ

and in the same issue says Cleveland
will be elected, and that there is little
to choose between him and Harrison,
except that democrats will get the fat
offices. Calhoun says that Cleveland
and Harrison would veto any measure
of financial relief. But if the two old
parties both lead to perdition the in
dependents are right in taking to the
woods, and in '92 it will be found that
" the woods are full of 'em."

Sugar from sorghum is now be
ing manufactured by a new process
which is described in the Scientific
American. The gura which has hitherto
prevented crystallization is dissolved
with alcohol, and sugar to the amount
of 150 pounds per ton of the plant is
produced. A ton of sorghum cane
costs only hilf what a ton of sugar bents
costs. This is the report of H. W. Wiley,
director of the government sorghum
sugar station at Medicine Lodge, Kau.
Z3T Germany twenty years ago bought
all her sugar. To-day she grows and
manufactures more sugar than any
other country in the world. She pro
duces ten times as much as as the Sand
wich Islands, and almost nine times as
much as the United States. But what
Germany has done the United States
can do many times over. Nebraska
will yet be a great sugar as well as a
great corn, hog and cattle state. And
Lincoln is its capitol.

THE EVIL OF OPTION DEALING.
Hon. August Post, Secretary of th
National Farmer' AUianc, in Favor
of the Buttetworth Bill.
To the Alliance of American Farmer and
We desire to call your attention to
what Is known a "The Butterworth
Bill." concerning option and future
ales of farm products now pending be
fore congress, and to urge that you use
all the influence yon can command, by
petitions or otherwise, to secure the
active support of your senator and
representatives in congress in favor of
the immediate passage of the bill.
A careful study of the causes of the
present depression in the farming and
planting industry must satisfy any one
that the enormous amount of "short"
selling and gambling in soil products
which is carried on in Chicago and
other cities has been the leading cause
of tho present low values of these
The actual product of this country
have now to compete not only with
what Is actually grown in other coun
tries, but with a hundredfold greater
quantity of fictitious or "wind" pro
duct which theso gambler through
their artful devices and methods con
jure up and uee In the market as a
means of depressing the price.
While the stuff they offer for aale is
not real or actual, yet the operator
have become such accomplished jug
gler that they make it appear a If it
was, and so manipulate it that it ha all
the weight and force of real stuff for
depressing market values of wheat and
other farm product.
For instance, a certain number of
bushels of wheat are grown in this
country. This wheat must, of course,
under the law of supply and demand,
come in competition in the market with
whatever other wheat may be grown In
the other wheat producing countries of
the world. In other words, all the
wheat actually produced in each coun
try has its effect, naturally and inevit
ably, ia determining the value of wheat
in the various markets of the world.
Now, if the market price was regulated
by this standard alone, that Is, If the
market price was depressed solely by
the amount of wheat actually produced,
the farmer could not complain. But
the value or market price is not regu
lated In this way. The operators or
gamblers in wheat are too numerous
and too insatiable to content themselves
with offering for sale only such wheat
as U actually grown. By their system
of options and selling for future delivery
they constantly offer on tho market
millions of bushels which have no ex
istence; which are neither reaped nor
sown, and never will be, and which
will never be, and are never intended
to be, actually delivered. They consist
only of wind: and the buying and selling
of them are mere "bets" which are set
tled simply by paying the differences
between the price at which tbey were
sold and the market price at the time
the "bet" matures.. Yet, when they mere
offered for sale, then appeared to be real,
actual trheat. Of course the more of a
thing which is offered for sale the
greater the tendency must bo to lower
the price. And thus the selling of these
millions of bushels of "wind" wheat
loads the market down with an appar
ent supply which has no real existence,
and causes the market price to decline
just as effectually as if real wheat had
been sold. It is believed that this short
selling of wheat tends so strongly to de
press the market price that in effect the
larmer is actually made to give away
about one crop out of every five he
In the same way the market price of
corn, and other products of the farm, is
hammered down by this method of
selling "short" or, selling fictitious
stuff, which is produced ouly by the
sleight of hand tricks performed on the
exchanges, boards of trade and bucket
shops by dexterous and accomplished
The "Butterworth bill" recognizes
that congress is not authorized under
the constitution to expressly prohibit
this business; that its only power to
deal with it is under the authority to
raise revenue. The bill therefore im
poses a license fee and tax upon this
sort of business the effect of which will
be to put an end to it.
The Chicago, New York, New Or
leans and other exchanges and boards
of trade will defeat the passage of this
bill if possible. They realize that, if
they cannot continue to use the farmers
and planters for shuttle-cocks, the game
they have played so long at the expense
of these producers will have to stop. It
will therefore require immediate and
energetic action on the part of farmers
and planters to have the bill passed.
Write your representatives aud urge
them to pass the bill in the house, and
to use all the influence they can to
secure its passage in tho senate also.
Have every influential man who favors
the bill, whether ho be a producer or
merchant, write a personal letter to the
congressi-aan of his district requesting
immediate and decisive action in this
matter. Your organization should also
adopt resolutions favoring this bill and
forward copies of same to your senators
and representatives at Washington.
Do whatever you can, and do tt quickly,
to secure the passago of the bill.
Sec'y National Farmers' Alliance.
