the national irfouu pnrty, ht-ld the2Tth

Chicago, arrogating to themselves no
light to speak authoritatively for any
one but themselves, or to dictate tL.o

aipou which wo ourselves are substan

boiioat ion of all political elements in

i. That money should be issued bv
the geueral government, without the
intervention of any private institutions.
in sufficient quantity to carry on the
business of the country, and such monev
should be a full legal tender for all

trolled by the government to obtain for
all tbe people equal and equitable ad
vantages la such M-rvic-a. and If the
effort to so control said means of trans

government ownership of the same.
4. We are opposed to speculation in

5. We favor municipal suffrage for

We have received the feliowlog sharp
criticism of the proposed course of the

The Eya and Ear

tho beauties of nature; without the ear
we could not hear tho voices of our
friends nor enjoy the sweet sounds of

trulltjr Lattl Not Violated.
San Antonio, Feb. 0. A sensation
was created among the Mexican popula
tion and in military circles here by the
publication of a letter addressed to the
Hon. B. Harrison, president of the
United States, from Catarino E. Garza,
the revolutionary leader, in El Chinaoo,
tho leading Spanish newspaper of this
city, Tlie letter is dated La Siorrieta,
State of Tamaulipas, Mexico, Jan. ill,
1802. In his preliminary remarks to the
editor Garza states that he has forward
ed President Harrison the letter, but
that he fears that the latter will not
make it public, and as lie desires to
have his position and action toward the
United States clearly understood, he do-
cided to semi a copy of tho letter to El
Cliinacolor publication, the letter is
for the most part an attack on tho Mex
ican government, and particularly
President Diaz. Ho oilers strong ob-ieo
tion to being charged with having vio
lated tho neutrality laws of tho United
Spates and defeuds his action as follows:
Being a resident of Texas when I de
cided to raise the banner of insurrection la
my beloved country, Mukloo, it was but
naPurnl, logical and inevitable that I
should travel, be it alone or accompanied,
tbroiii,'h your territory in order to roach
Mexico. That such action has nlwolufely
nothing to do with the so called neutral
ity laws, is generally conceded by public,
international und political right.
Garza continues in this strain through
out his letter. Ho gives no uows con
cerning the propresH of the movement of
which he is at the head.

Three accidents to 15. and M. employes
In one day were reported from Platts

while coupling cars caught his hand and
badly crushed it. Oswald Guthman,
an employe at the ronnd bouse, came near

jumped to the pit to save himself and
broke his leu just below the knee. Brake
man ltford of the Lincoln branch fell
from tho top of a car to a flat car loaded
with iron, and broke a leg.
A Khooting ttffrny occurred at Nebraska
City in which Thomas Thompson came
near being killed. It seems that a man

with Thompson just across tho Hver tu
Iowa. Morse came to the city, got com
fortably drunk and started home. In tho
meantime his wito and Thompson st.trted
out to find him. Thoy met him on tho

. Fira and Lightning.
In Iowa there ia a motnal insurance
association, composed of two delegates
from each company. Iu last annual
meeting was held in Pes Moines, Nor.
18 and 19, 1691, In which eighty-five
companies were represented. The
total amount of irsuranc carried by
these companies is 153, 784,761 00, an in
crease cf over 17,000,040 00, (but we are
told by old line agent that mutual com
panies are breaking up).
The total cost for doing all the work
connected with these vast millions was
20,951, and the losses were t7G,743.
Total, 197,094 or 1107 for each $1,000
Insured, and for the last five years the
total cost has been $3 07 per $1,000.
Compare this item of cost with your own
cost of insurance. Fnrther, had the
stock companies of this state carried
that amount of insurance, it would have
cost policy nolders (taking one-fifth of
tho fivo years rate) $114,827 00, leaving
a balance of $117,243 00 in favor of
mutual insurance. But let us look at
somo figures compiled from the Fire In
juraccc Pocket Index. We had four
stock companies In this s'ate that have
maae reports for a number of years,
Tho'.r totals are a curiosity to the unin
itiated. The four companies received a
total of $1,703,3(9 00 for the five years
Including '80 and DO, and for the same
time paid for losses $384,147.00, leaving
a balance in favor of the companies of
81,319.078 00. while the expense was
m,m 00, which was two and one-third
times the amount of lots.
According to their own report, the
losses bos only been 23 9 pr cent of tbe
premium collected, while the expeneo
account was 51 33 per cent. i,ast win
ter we got a law passed by which we
can incorporate mutual Insurance com
panies, and at this writing there have
been incorporated twelvo companies;
two of them had done no business last
year and therefore male no report. As
to the amount insured tho ten that re
ported have a nice beginning, the
amount of property insured being $984.
By Jan. 1, '93. there will be at least
$3 000,000 worth of property insured by
incorporated mutuais. ana besides these
companies there are soveral companies
that are tin incorporated, and therefore
do not make any report to the auditor,
and In these compauies I will venture a
guess that these companies are catrying
at least $3,000,000, and are gaining all
There la plnnty room far many more
fire companies in this btate, and in fact
no farmer should insuro in any other
kind of a company.
Wo are receiving applications in the
Cyclone company, and will no doubt
have it on its feet by May first, but we
want moro men to work for it. Any
one can work for tho company until it
is incorporated, which will not be done
until we have $150,000 worth of prop
erty insured, and further no one need
pay any thing until we have that
amount on lilo, and then only the same
amount that is paid by a vory successful
company in Iowa, viz : the Mutual
tornado, uycione and W ind-stcrm ca
ssation, which has a membership fco
of $1,00, survey fee $100 and 10 cents
por hundred dollars. 1 he above named
company was organized in January.
1BS4, commenced business in May of
same year, since which time there has
beon but two assessments of 60 cents
per $1,000 each time, and at this time
the company fans $2,800 in its treasury,
after paying all losses and expenses.
uur uycione company covers the
state, and no farmer should pay a stock
company four or fivo times as much for
bis insurance as it really costs. Re
member this company is organized to
save money, while all stock companies
aro organized to mako money. You
should insure in a company that will
givo you a membership and a voice in
its workings, and not in a company that
bleeds yon lor an amount that is calcu
lated to make aristocrats out of the few
who have the running of them.

Elk City, Neb , Feb. 3. Douglas
county Fnrmera' Alliance held their
regular meeting at this place Jan. SC.
i'here was an unusual large attend
anew of mombers and very much Inter
est manifested in the present progress
and the ultimate success of our ordor.
It is quite encouraging to note the
lively interest our fnrmors take in the
current qnestlons of the day, and when
nothing else ocouples their time they
naturally drift tow trds the silver ques
tion; transportation, the Chinese qnes
tionr Pinkertonism or the Chilian war,
and of late the merits or demerits of
the Burrows Rosewater discussion.

To say he held the closest attention
of his hearers with his clear cut argu

Por the Germans.

and sure to make converts The retail
price is 25 cents, but it will be furnished
to reform organizations and agents at a
greatly reduced rate. A sample copy
will be sent for 15 cents. Address
