Editok Farmers' Aixuxck: I hard
ly know whether to address you in a
personal or an official capacity, but I
feel that some report should be made
of the ratification meeting held in this
city last Saturday. The court room
was filled with fanners (only their
editor. Judge Stark and ex-shoriff Fall
being present from the city). Speeches
from Judge Stark, Chairman Upward
and S. N. Whittlesey, a former republi
can, were listened to, describing the St.
Louli conference from the standpoint
of the K. of L., the Fanners' Alliance,
and that of a spectator; and for more
than two hours the people sat and
listened to the recital, only &n occa
sional burst of applause relieving the
unusual stillness of the room.
The Judge was forcible and eloquent,
Ui'. Howard, Interesting and con
vincing, and Mr. Whittelsey, though
not used to public speaking, stirred the
audience as he pronounced "the work
of that conference an inspiration and
its personnel to be the most earnest and
patriotic he ever saw."
When the final vote was taken as to
whether or not the work of the confer
ence met with the endorsement cf the
audience they, with a single exception,
sprang to their feet as one man. So
unanimous and enthusaistio a meeting
the writer has never seen.
Speeches were also made by Senator
Hern, Representative Newberry and
The system of substituting primary
elections for caucus and convention
was fully discussed and the chairmen of
the varion central committees in
structed to ascertain the wishes of their
precincts in regard to the matter, and
with such hearty good feeling as one
seldom sees, the meeting adjourned.

At the close of ths business meeting
of the county Alliance Saturday an open
meeting of the independents of the
county was held for the purpose of
ratifying the St. Louis platform. S. W.

St. Louis platform and plans for carry

some length by D. R. Carpenter, J. M.

Endicott. Neb., March 29, 1802
Pursuant' to the national call for
ratification of the St. Louis demands
the Independents of Endicott precinct
held a meeting for that purpose on the
afternoon of March 26th.- The meeting
had been appointed for both afternoon
and evening but owing to the unusually
severe weather the bonnre and the eve
ning meeting had to be abandoned.
The afternoon meeting was well
attended considering the weather.
Good music was furnished by the
Endicott cornet band, and some most
excellent speeches were made. The
principle sneaker was S. E. Isgraham
oi Falrbury, who is soul and body in
the Independent caase ana who
chock full of reasons why we need
reform. He Is a forcible speaker and
handled the finance question without
gloves, exposing the fallacies of the gold
Dags, in suca a way mat a way oaring
mail thongk a fool might see the point
Following Mr. Ingraham came several
local speakers, educated in the
Allianoe. We have no troubls in
getting speakers now.
The most noticable feature of the
meeting was the almost entire absence
of the old party Waders, and that raises
the question, "are they afraid to beard
the lion in bis den?" or do they think
they will freeze the causa out oy not
showing their smiling faces at our
meetings. If they do they are very
much mistaken, for the cause grows
stronger every Say. tne people are
thinking and our cbances lor victory
are better than ever before.
Wishing vour paper all the success
possible, we are, yours for reform,

Genoa. Neb . March 29, 1892.
Editors Farmers Alliance I am
receipt of a circular letter from
'hdlp Andres, deputy labor commis
sioner of Nebraska, wbi:n reads as
follows: . . .
The cost of raising corn and w sein
er farmers are workiDg at a loss is a
question that has agitated the minds of
tne people, this uureau is aeiernimea
to investigate the mutter and obtain.
with your assistance, me most accurate
and reliable figures.
You aro respectfully requested w uu
out the enclosed blank and return the
same to this office."
Now Mr. Andres for his authority
in sending out these circulars adds the
"Sec. 8. of tte Law creating a Bu
reau ot Labor. Census and Industrial
Statistics, reads: 'The said commis-
ssioner shall have the power to prescribe
blank forms, and transmit tnem to
employers and others wnich shall be
tilled out clearly ana completely, wun
the facts, statistics ana statements
asked for, and return them to the com
missioner within such reasonable time
as he may fix.' "
Sec. 8 of chanter 39. which Mr An
dres pretends to quote, reads as follows,
and please note the difference:
"Sec. , (forms Aamission 10
Work Shoos.) The said commissioner
shall have the power to prescribe blank
forms and transmit them to employers,
which shall be tilled out clearly and
completely under oath oy the person or
persons to whom they are sent, with
the facts, statistics and statements
asked for and return to him within such
reasonable time as he may fix. In case
any owner or occupant, or bis agent,
sh.ill refuse to admit any officer of said
bureau to bis work shop or lactory,
when open or in operation, be shall
forfeit the sum of ten dollars for each
and every offence. Etc , etc."
Now. Mr. Editor, the farmers of this
state already know just how fast they
are getting rich raising corn. They also
know how much it costs to get it to
market, and that the speculators and
railroads get all our profits and more
too; hut would it be any better with
beets and allow the buyer to do bis own
testing? 1 think not. Let's hear from
our brothers near Grand Island who
raised boets even when there was a
state bounty on sugar. Will they
raise more beets this year? I think
Now. Mr. Editor. I think this is a
grand scheme on the part of the sugar
men t,(tney are so sweet) to compile
these statistics without authority at the
expense of the state and make them
appear authentic. The next thing they
ill do win oe to compile peet statistics
which will show that we can make
more raisinor beets than corn. If so,
then the legislature next winter should
put a bounty on corn raising for the
beet raiser to pay. or we would all
raise beets and have no corn to put la
our sugar cake.
T m . ' ' 11.... AMm

which will Dav best, but so! long as the
sugar crop is controlled by a monopoly
there is no hope lor tne larniers. i am
not In favor, however, of taxing the
mlanr to oav his neighbor for
raisinir beets, or vice versa.
A law should be passed establishing a
state inspector of beets and abolishing
the bureau ot labor and Industrial sta
tistics If thty cannot confine themselves
to their authorized Jurisdiction.

W. Edgerton would now be a member
of the Supreme Court of our state. A
d'Allemand would be one of our State
Regents, and how many more State ofti
cers would have been elected I know
not. And though this is a matter of
small importance your correspondent
would now be holding the oltice of Sup

that every oounty officer of this state
