n idat of a nation brought to tbe verge f mo
ral, political, and material ruin, lerruption

songresa, and touches even the ermine of the

of the states uava been compelled to Isolate

prevent universal intimidation orDnberr.The
neaspapers are subsidised or muuled, publio
opinion ailenoed, business prostrated, our
homes covered with mortgages, labor impov
erished, and the the land concentrating In tbe
bands of capitalists. The urban workmen are
denied the right of organization for self-protection;
imported pauperized labor beats
down their wages; a hireling standing army
unrecognized by our laws, is established to
shoot them down, and they are rapidly de
generating to European conditions.
"Tbe fruits of the toil of millions are boldly
stolen to build up colossal fortunes, unprece
dented in the history of tbe world, while their
possessors despise the republio and endanger
liberty. From tbe same proline worn b of gov

classes-paupers and millionaires. Tiie na

purchasing power of gold by decreasing

lowing PLATFORM OF PRINCIPLES:
"We declare the union of the labor forces
of tbe United States, this day accomplished,
permanent and perpetual. Hay its Spirit en
ter into all hearts for the salvation of the re
public and tbe upllftlngof mankind.
Wealth belongs to him who creates It. Ev

equivalent is robbery. If any will not work
neither shall he eat. The Interests of rural
and urban labor are the same; their enemies
"1. We demand a national currency, safe
sound ana nexioie, issuea dj tne general
government only, a full legal tender for all
ebts, publio and private, and that without
the use of banking corporations, a just, equit
able means of circulation, at a tax not to ex
ceed t per cent as set forth in the ub-treas -uryplanof
the Farmer Alliance, or some
better system. Also payment in discharge of
it obligations for publio improvements.
"i.Wt demand free and unlimited coinage
"3. We demand that the amount of circu
lating medium be speedily increased to not
less than ISO per capita.
"4 We demand a graduated lnoome tax.
"5. We believe that the money of the
country should be kept as much as possible
in the hand of the people, sad hence we de
mand that all national, and state revenue
shall be limited to the necessary expenses of
the government, economically and honestly
"6. We demand that postal savings banks
be established by the government for the
safe deposit of the earnings of the people and
to facilitate exohange.
"7. The land, Including all the natural re
sources of wealth, is the heritage of all the
peapie and should net be monopolized for
speculative purposes, and alien ownership of
land should be prohibited. All lands now held
by railroads and. other corporations In excess
or their actual need, and ail lands now owned
by aliens, should be reclaimed by th govern
ment and held for actual settlers only.
"8. Transportation being a means of . ex
changee and a publio necessity, the govern
ment should own nnd operate the railroads
in the Interest ef the people.
"8. The telegraph and telephone, like the
post offioe system, being a necessity for the
transmission of news, should be owned and
operated by the government In the interest of
fuse to call an extra session of the leg'
islature to das the maximum rate bill.
At any rate they w-tre successful in us
ing him for that purpose, and the facta
leak out that the Governor is a candi
date for congress and has the egotism to
believe that he is the only man in that
district who has a dead cinch on elec
tion. He probably figures on the the
ory that no man can be elected in the
Omaha district who is not backed by
the railroad influence, and congratu
lates himself that he has secured that
influence by refusing to grant relief to
the people at the beck of the railroads.
All thij is doubtless true, and it is re
freshing to get it from a democratic
source. It remains to be seen what Mr.
Hall and other honest democrats who
hold similar views, will do when the
"Dr. Miller gang" controls the coming
state convention of their party. Will
they hare manhood enough to cut loose
from the unclean thing an join the true
party of the people, or will they stultify
themselves for the sake of party suc
cess? The fact is that there are a num
ber of honest brainy fellows editing
democratic papers in .Nebraska. They
have been trying to reform their party,
and are very much disgusted with the
Their party has left them. It has de
parted utterly from the democracy of
Jefferson and Jackson. The people's
party is the true democratic party of
to-day. It is also the true republican
party. All honest democrats and re
publicans to-day have the choice be
tween following the parties which be
trayed and deserted them, or remaining
where they belong, i. e.. in the people's
MEETING OP THE EXECUTIVE
The executive committee of the state
Alliance held a meeting at the Lindell
hotel on Tuesday. All members were
present, also lecturers Dech, Wright
and Fairchild, and President Powers
and Sec'y. Thompson. The work of
the lecturers was reviewed and pro
coHnced eminently satisfactory, and
plans for future work were outlined.
After a full discussion of tbe National
Union Co., the following resolution
was adopted concerning it:
Resolved, That while we favor co-op
eration in buying and selling ou the
part of our members, we cannot, from
our present knowledge of the plans and
work of the National Union Company,
give it our endorsement or support.

Grand Island Democrat is very much di
gusted with the monopoly crowd that
has control of his party in this state.
Here are a few of the expressions he
uses to relieve his overcharged feelings:
The defeat of the silver bill in con

contingent in Nebraska new life, and

in the interest of the money power.
The democratic party came into pow
car in the state by electing a governor,
and the democrats took heart and sup
posed that something would be done to
convince the people that it was to their

al organ of the Georgia Alliance, of Mar.

cratic bosses are demoralized in Georgia.
IN A BAD FIX.
"Is Mr. Watterson' proposed Western can
didate In favor of remouetlsatlon of silver?
If he is not the farmers of the south will
largely refuse to support him . This Is a fact
that might a well be looked straight in the
face." Atlanta Constitution.
Is the Constitution's avowed eastern
candidate in favor of the remonetiza
tion of silver? Is he for or against the
Bland bill? On his recent journey to
the south, did he interpret in the secret
chambers of the office of the Constitution
his oracular utterances concerning sil
ver? Louisville Courier Journal.
The democratic party must choose
between the two horns of the silver
dilemma. A free coinage man will be
defeated by tbe solid anti-silver east
and ttere will be a heavy defection in
the west and south if an anti-silver man
is nominated. The man who tries to sit
both horns will fare no better. The
republicans will of course oppose silver
straight out, while hypoi.ritically call
ing for "honest" money. Its strength
will be in the east, its weakness in the
west, where it will lose very heavily.
Both old parties have reached a place
where neither can benefit by the losses
of the other, and the people's party will
draw mightily, and the best element,
from both. The St. Louis platform is
sta.-.nch and bread, the old par'y plat
forms will be worn out materials, lies
too many times demonstrated.

ME. FALROHILDS WOEK-
Assistant State Lecturer Eairchild
was in the city on Tuesday to attend the
meeting o: the Alliance Executive board.
The following is a brief account of his
work since the St Louis conference. He
has held nineteen meetings, nearly all
in the northeastern part of the state
where the Alliance organization is not
so strong as elsewhere. The first six
meetings in Burt couaty, all of which
were well attended except at Oakland,
where bad weather and impassable
roads prevented. Burt promises an in
dependent majority next fall. He visited
Wayne county next where he held five
meetings, all of which were well attend
execpting one at Carroll. Much enthus
iasm was manifested. At Wayne the ban
kers tried to keep men over whom they
held mortgages from attending the meet
ings. In spite of this, two rousing meet
ings were held. Last fall the indepen
dents elected part of their ticket in this
county and they expect to make a clean
sweep next fall. From Wayne he went
to Pierce county where he held meet
ings at Osmond, "turner's school house,
and at Pierce. The attendance at these
meetings was fair, but not larjre, owing
to untoward circumstances. The Al
liances of that county ars in excellent
condition, and the independents feel
sure of a victory next fall. Lastly he
held four meetings in Stanton county,
all of which were well attended and en
thusias ic. There are only a few A
liances in Stanton, but there are hun
dreds of independents who have never
belonged to the Alliance. The citizens
of Pilger aad Stanton turned oir, well
and showed much interest.
Mr. Fairchild starts at once on an
other tour through Antelope, Madison,
Knox and Cedar counties.
Isn't it strange that a few laws passed
in the interest of labor usually turn out
to be unconstitutional? Douotless in
many cases they are purposely made so.
The last Illinois legislature passed a
bill making it unlawful for employers
jt labor to own "truck stores" from
which their employes were forced to
purchase supplies. The supreme court
of that state has just found that law un
constitutional. So now the poor miners
must take their pay in high priced in
ferior supplies bought at a "pluck me-
store," or lose their job.
THE WOEKEES MUST SETTLE THE
"In old days the robbers lived out
in the woods, or dwelt in a hole in the
ground, and cheerfully froze to the
traveller's goods whenever he happened
around. Oh. the robber of old was sim
ple and bold, and rarely put on any
frills; but the robber to-day has quite a
different way, and the tax-payers foot
up the bills bills bills the laborers
settle the bills. The old-fashioned
robber was deft with his dirk; the rob
ber to-dy wears a smile; with a mur
derous club No. 1 did his work, No, 2
uses 'grease' from his 'pile.' "
A much nicer way is the modern, so
think the Chicago gang, who recently
"greased" through the council an ordin
ance giving away to private parties a
franchise estimated to be worth about
$20,000,000, the people paying all the
bills. The goods confiscated by Robin
Hood weren't a circumstance compared
with such modern pulls, and the beauty
of the present system is, the robbers, or
those whom they divide with, make the
laws. Yes, we are making wonderful
advances and finding out how to do
