The Alliance Horald: The progress
made by the Alliance in forcing its de

Ia IM0 the dominant question waa
tho man represented in the negro
lave vs. tho dollar represented la the
property holder. Said Abraham Lin
coln at that tim "lioth the man and
the dollar a1 worthy of consideration,
but in case of a coatlict then the man
first." And the conflict followed re
sulting in the freedom of the blaclc
slave. What then? asks the Bunker
Hill Times. The dollar controlled
financial legislation during the war,
and devised and enacted schemes
whereby It inaugurated a new system
of slavery. It obtained control of the
volume of money of the country,
nnd it still holds this control.
It creates credit and loans credit
and contracting this money volume
at its pleasure .it contracts
prices, and theso falling prices
bring bankruptcy and failures, low
wage, nnd men out of work. To-day
2A.000 people own more than one-half
of the woaltb of the L'nited States,
while tho remaining 62,000,000 clutch
at the throats of each other to get a
bounty or a living out of the other
half. And oven while they do this
thoso sam remorseless law relent
lessly direct a stream of wealth from
i'no toiicrs to tho pintocracy. Twenty
years ago tliis plutocracy owned 37
por cent of tun wealth of tho country;
to-day 60 por ciint Twonty years
ii go the millionaires were very few in
number although the country had ex
isted nearly one hundred yoars.
Wealth was . equitably distributed
among those who created it To-day
men struggle for a pittance and women
und children are harnesaod to tho
treadmill of life to eke out
th money necehsury to support
tho family; and yi-t oven out
of these scanty wages unseen hands
fcllcnily demand and lake a tithe every
t ine a purchase Is made, of things to
cat und things to wear. Politically
men divide on the tariff which may
ntted them a few cents, while they
ignore tho cmise that affects them by
many dollars. And the old parlies so
Intend it. Votes shift from one party
to tho other In a vain attempt to im
prove thoir condition; but the Jay
(iould class contribute tho campaign
funds t Ixith parties for bands, rod
lire nod torch lights, and then when
the glare nnd noise is over this
elais are victors whichever parly
wins. Prices continue to fall, lurgu
monopolies absorb tho small mor- i
chants, tho big blocks of capital wipe
out nnd nbsorb the small blocks, tho
wngiv worker nod toiler yields a tithe
in every article consumed. Nov, if
wo havo correctly stated tho con
ditions its they exist, is there a need
for tho People s party? If the pcoplo

Er noa or Tun Aluakcx: 1 am so
plr-ased t note the several letters from
lady IndependcuU, which have lately
appeared in your columns. They are a
most encouraging sign and should be an
example f jt dozens of others to follow.
These intelligent letters and articles
from the pens of conetty ' jikes" (as we
are called,) are a delightful contrast to
the arrogant, egotistical, and sublimely
ignorar t talk ot the average city folk.
The prcsp"Cts for an extensive growth
of reform pria ipies, here in the den of
the wasp (bee) seem very poor indeed
from the little 1 have ben able to ob

immediate attention of our voters par
ticularly, and 1 wish each sub-Alliance
might at once discuss it in time to act
decisively and with cautious intelligence
i his is the momentus question, of ttho
shall receive our nomination as successor
to Senator Paddock.
We are most anxious to obtain laws
favorable to the producer, and for the
weal of the whole DeoDle: but. the first
step to that end must be tho election of
men uho have not "been tttighed in the
balance and found wanting " We have

which adds another dread vantage to
the cause, which calls for the best efforts
of human itT. -
Our last Fahmebs' Allianck made a
most startling announcement which cer
tainly must have been very disagreeable
news to our wide awake independents
or many of them at least. Can it be
possible that so soon after his record of
W, with its criminally delayed letter of
"declination' and unrefated accusations,
Mr. Van Wyck's "shortsighted folly."
prompts him to Renin appear on the
scene as a candidate for lavorr Brother
farmers, will you stand by and see our
party, so strong in its infancy, collared
by a wily foe in this manner? The as
sertions against this man's honorable
actions and underhand d plan for de
feat of the state ticket, (through jealousy
and revenge,) have never to my knowl
edge been disproved. Does not the no
ble state of Nebraska afford a man with
a clean record, and iutellsct equal to
any? If not, then good bye to reform.
I feci confident that the selection of
Van Wyck by the idopendent party will
produce the very rupture for which the
two old parties have so diligently worked
I am only a woman, but it looks very
singular to me that onr State Alliance
could bo so manipulated as to heal the
imaginary factions, In this indiscreet and
hasty manner. It surely does not re
flect the-sentiment of the members of
out order unless I greatly miscalculate.
I know there was strong feeling against
this Gen. Van Wyck because of his
cowardly retreat at the first lira on the
Voters, it is not a question with us as
to whether he is an honest independent
ornot. If he is, let him follow in the
line of duty, he marked oat for himself,
when he, after long delay refused the
honor, so unanimously and cheerfully
tendered him, and skulked over to the
ambushed enemy. Tbo quostion with
us is, khall we be "sold out"' by a cow
notorious politician? or shall we elect a
true blue independent, such as we are
assured Hon. Johnll. Powers is and has
ever been, sinee the movement began?
The vigorous, but gentlemanly, arraign
ments of Mr. Van Wyck, in these col
umns heretofore, have elicited uo re
sponse from Alliance people, from a
feeling that it was unnecessary. But it bore
abuntlant fruit; and the time arrives
when Bro. Burrows' position, from
which he has not relreattdt must either ;
be sustained, or proven untenable.
I have just once seen a plea possibly
from a friend of this "declared candi
date" a plea to Ut him alone, (no de
fense or repudiation.) We have been
and are. perfectly willing to do this,
protiding.he will keep his chosen place,
and le&veoffices to those not too cowardly
to bear the Alliance colors in IH9I).
We cannot afford to hazard our suc
cess in by running him on the inde
penden tticket to please a small, insignif
icant faction. If he has true sincere
friends of reform in his following, let
them study the case well, ere they fur
ther attempt to foist one, politically
dead, upon the people, as a proper rep
resentative. Is it wise to trust such faul
ty judgment as that which he has shown
in seeking heners but lately snubbed,
leaving honesty out of the question? I
can only think this apparent indiscre
tion of electing Mr. Van Wyck as a delo
gf.te to the National Allianeo is a Berl
ins mistake, accomplished by intrigue
of tho the enemv. and without copsid
eration on tho part of delegates. This
seoaicg admission that there teas di
visions in the Alliance, is hailed with de
light by old party organs and their be
fogged readers, and the only remedy for
its evident results is to at nce sit dean
most emphatically on the aspirations of
this "irould be" senator of Nebraska.
Let our fair state copy the manner of
Ingnlls' defeat, and redeem herself from
imminent disgrace and,betrayal. When
we get a fafe major ty in Congress, of
the plain industrious clas which harbors
no traitors, wemay then expect to do
something for tho nation mere worthy
than getting up a plutocrat circus, in
volving millions of expemes with no
corresponding benefit to the toilers.
I would dcploro tho rain of our new
new party on which so much is staked,
an tho inevitable delay of needed re
forms, in cor sequence of one man's
triumph or downfall. All earnest en

path, which we brothers are content to
tread, will bo acceptable; but no'Tepen

All women born in the Uuited States
must bo ci'.lzens of the United States,

born, or naturalized in the United
States, and subject to its jurisdiction"
to bo citizens. Women are "persons."
and suject to the jurisdiction of the
United States, and also to tho stato in
which they live; and consequently they
areeitizcas. This I believe is a con
ceded fact. Now I should like to have
Eome real smart man, who believes in
"equal rights to all, special privileges
to note" rise and explain, WHY the
men have tho special privileges of the
ballotl In uhat nre tkey more cltizeus
of this country than we are? Explain
to us, please, why a foreigner who can
not read or rite, and who knows no
more about legislation, just or unjust,
than a bronco, is more of a citizen of
this country, than the American bom
teaman, educated in all the intricacies
of a republican form of government
well acquainted with the history, not
only of our own nation, but foreign na
tions, and nations past and gone, and
who teach )our ekUdrtu the forms of
civilized government which the foreign
tr knows not hi i g b?ut. But he it al
lowed the ballot, to perpetuate igoo
ranee and vice, while tie Is denied ihe
same privileges when everything goes
to prove the would use it to perpetuate
morality and justice.
1 know all foreigners are pot so igno
rant as the one I have taken for a sam
ple; nor are all American bora women
as competent as my model; but it is an
acknowledged fact, that the riff-raff of
foreign countries are the ruling power
in this, and they are not the patriotic
citizens American women aro, even with
the concersions .hat are made tbem and
denied k-r. Charles Bancroft, in speak
ing of the failure of the constitution to
define who ta mid be voters, says, "It
seems to be a loose point in the regula
tions, otherwise so admirable; since it
may work considerable inequality under
circumstances; and, in some cases might
change the policy of the government.
It is a question worthy of consideration
whether there should not be aa amend
ment to the constitution establishii g
uniformity of suffrage in all the states "
And Bancroft puts it very mildly I
think. Did you ever think about it,
that the word sex does not occur in the
constitution, or the word male until the
fourteenth amendment, which went in
to force July 1868? I here is no thing
certain; if any of the contemplated re
formers are ever brought to a success
ful issue, it wiil be through the efforts
of devoted women. Then why not give
her the only weapon she needs to de
