An Object Lesson.
Editor Auiajsck: Aa the question
of free silver ia now one of the promi
nent anbtacU of discussion before the
public allow me to lay before your
reader an Object Lesson that as a pri
ate Individual I received some year
mo, and as it Is a fact and not t mere
- chimerical theory, it ought to have
ome weight with men who are adverse
to hearing mere theories. Toe incident
was as follows:
In the year 1879 1 entered a store in
or village and made a purchase of $3
In dry goods. After the parcel was
4aly made up, 13 was tendered as pay
ment. The store keeper politely inform
ed me that one of those dollar was
only worth 60 cents. At this I was
somewhat astonished, for this reason:
the two pieces of coin were made of
the same material, minted and stamped
- from one and the same institution; bnt
here cornea the nifst extraordinary
point in tho case. The rejected dollar
contained more sliver than the one the
tore keeper politely accepted. The re
1 acted coin contained agreeable to the
Inscription on its face 430 grains of silver
whilst the one that was accepted only
r contained 4VU Brains, flow the query
comes in: why this action on the part
of the store keeper? Enquiry was
made and. his answer was, the banks
refected the 430 srraln dollar. -
This naturally brings up the idea why
did the store keeper accept the lesser
weight coin of 4131 grains? Ah! it was
a leo-al tender for all debts public and
private, so here to me was a veriable
Obiert Lesson in the fiat school of phll
osopby. It cost me 10 cents, for I had
cither to give back my goodi or hand
over a dime. To each private individ
ual this probably does not amount to
tnucn, But when we know tnai
115.000.000 of these heavy weight dol
lars were bought up by the banks at 10
to lo per cent aiscount, ana men a dim
was manipulated through the congress
to the effect that all holders of these
430 raln coins would receive a full le
tal tender dollar for each heavy weight
liar, we see it was no
mall matter. These heavy dollars were
dubbed, "a disturbing element" this was
the phrase used by the mover of this bill.
Wbv were the v a disturbing element in

Keeping A Weather Eye Oat
Editok Aluamc: The democratic
proposition to give the farmers free
trade as a measure of relief exhibits
about the same degree of sympathy for
them as did the Indian for his captive.
After starving him until he was weak
the Indians would form in two long
lines, each one armed with a club If
the captive In his weakened condition
could pass between those two lines
without being struck down he was Ireo.
So with the democratic party. If
after running the gauntlet of the rail
roads, banks, boards oi trade, trusts ana
tho rest of the outfit that prey without
ceasing, there was anything left of the
farmers produce they weuld give him
The onlv wav to attract respectable
men from the old parties to the new, is

If uov isoya bad called an extra ses
sion of the legislature the probabilities
are tbr-.t iho democrats would have in
troduced a railroad LIU that would
afford about as much relief to the
farmer as the passage of the Mills bill
would. Yours, with a weather eye on

Tariff Tor Revenue Only.
To The Farmers' Alliance: I read
with much pleasure Congressman
Bryan's letter to the Fremont Binder
Twine Co., in your issue of March 10,
declining to use his Influence against
filacing twine on the free list and stat
ng hat he was not a representative of
the manufacturer especially, but a rep
resentative of tbe people in general,
Mr. Rosewater in his iss.ue of March
9th thinks that Mr. Bryan ought to be a
little more concrete. Why does Mr.
Rosewater want the duty of seven
tenths of a cent per pound kept on
Because he would have the capitalist
protected ot the cost of the poor.
I say away with your protective
tariff. I dont believe in tariff except
for revenue only. And put some more
men in congress just as concrete as Mr.
Bryan and the people will be repre
sented instead of capital.
Yours for reform on the St. Louis
platform. J. E. H.
The Robison Wire ReeL
This reel is used for taking up and
putting down barbed wire. It is a frame
work forty five inches high and twenty
eight inches wide, made of 2x4 pieces of
of hard wood. The lower part of the
frame Is fitted to wagon box, but is not
made fast. A shaft with crank and brake
wheel is placed in bearings in frame and
held by a drop slido. A clutch is fast
ened on shaft with set screw, which
Lholds spool and makes it revolve with
snail, a couar is put on outer enu oi
shaft with set screw so as to hold spool
in clutch that any sized spool may be
used less than two feet in diameter and
twenty -two inches in length. Any small
pool or any old spool may be used.
The wire Is led to spool by means of a
movable guide, a large round ring at
tached to an arm extending out from
frame. This is operated by means of a
small crank which extends to top of
frame and is fastened to frame with
two eyes. It is also cranked at top of
frame with drop pin in crank and plate
on top of frame, which has several
holes for changing crank to any desired
point. By moving this crank back and
forth the guide is made to play the
wire evenly over the spool.
novr we are ready for taking up wire.

crank with left hand, xou pickup wire
as fast as any team can walk, and wind
it on spool as neat as when It came from
factory. Spools can be changed la from
one to two minutes when full.
In putting out wire the machine is
placed on bind end of wagon. A lever is
now used te keeep the wheel from run
ning too fast and tangling the wire. Any
boy twelve years old can operate the
machine. It Is claimed for the Robinson
wire reel that it is the lightest, cheapest
most durable and easiest to oiierate. It
will also do more work than any other
reel in existence iu a certain length of
time. State and county rights for sale.

Editor Farmers' Alliance: We.
in this part of Clay county are awake
to our own interests are determined to
win in the great tight for the homes of
the farmers and laborers of this coun
try. While we know the demands we
make are just and right, we know that
neither of the old parties are in sympa
thy with the platform we stand on.
therefore we must stand as ono man,
tirm as a rock and every farmer must
be up and work for God and home. He
must fight to save the roof that shelters
his family from the cruel hand of the
mortgage fiend. Already is the old re
publican party flinging the bloody shirt
to tne breeze and appealing to the old
vets to stand by the party. But down
she must go and Tom Majors' blue
shirt stuck in the hole will not save it;
and with it will go Boyd and the bal
ance of the democratic party as well.
They are condemned and the righteous
judgment of tbe people of this country

The Eight to Vote.
Joel Benton argues in the Social Econ
omist that the right to vote is not a
right in tbe first instance, but a privil
ege conferred by the state. But pray
what is the state? Under the theory of
tho divine right of kings, it is something
apart from the people; but under the
democratic theory, what ia it but the
people themselves? is popular govern
ment a right, or is it a privilege con
ferred by by what shall we say, if there
is no power superior to the people? If
popular government is a right, voting
Is a right and not a privilege; for the
people do not nave even the appearauce
of self-government unless they are in
a position to control the agencies of j
government. If popular government is
not a right, monarchy, or aristocracy,
or anarchy must be the just form. If not
a matter of right, but of privilege or
conquest, a superior right must have
been abdieated or conquered. Whose
right was abdicated? Whose right was
wrested from him by force? It is no
answer to say, as Mr. Benton does, that
women are not allowed to vote. That
argues no more than that rights are
still withheld, not that they do not exist.
Neither does he take anything by his
plea that convicts, idiots, and infauts
are denied what ho calls the privilege of
voting. No one asserts that infants are
entitled to self government not even
the infants; the same may be said of
idiots; and as to convicts, they are de
prived ot the indisputable right to life
as well as of the "privilege" of voting.
To the Producers, All
The various industrial and socialistic
organizations of Europe will yet have
possession of the old world. God speed
the day when the events leiding to this
change will take place. There is no rea
son on earth in or heaven why the pro
ducers of a country should be compelled
to freely support in idleness and luxury
a class of overbearing peacock consum
ers. No gentleman in good health will
live off of his fellowmen, much less de
mand that they roll him in clover a
dozen times a day. Omaha Tocsin.
