gressman at large and ten presidential
electors. One delegate is allowed for
each 250 votes. A formal call will be
issued in a few days.
Grand ratification meetings were
held in many parts of the state. The
people's party will upset the calcula
tions of many old party politicians in
old Missouri in the campaign of '92.
ST. LOUIS RATIFIES.
On April 2d. representatives' from
fifty different labor organizations in the
city of St. Louis, met in Turner's hall

Chairman Taubeneck of the national
committee delivered an address which

He was followed dy W. S. Morgan,

Omaha to prepare for it.
WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US-

the people's party in Nebraska and the

are all up at the old Alliance office.

The Nebraska Independent and
the Farmers' Alliance nave been con
solidated and the paper now floats
under the name of Alliance Inde

and wished for by the friends all over
the state. It not only consolidated the
two newspaper plants but it has asso

prising young men in Nebraska. The
Alliance and Independent have been
good papers, but now that the forces
have been united there i3 little doubt
that Messrs. Thompson, Pirtle Si

Omaha, Neb., April 16, "J2.
We have received a letter from chair
man H. E. Taubeneck saying that the
national executive committee of the
people's party, himself, Donnelly,
Davis, Schilling, and perhaps Gen.
Weaver, will be in Omaha, May 11th
and 12th, to look after the preparations
being made tor the convention nere
July 4th, and in which is suggested the
propriety of having a grand rally here
May 12th. We are acting under the
suggestion, have rotilied chairman
Taubeneck. ana propose making the
rally something of a state affair, and to
invito everybody. Hope you will write
the matter up and give the meeting as
extensive advertising s possible. We
have arranged to have a meeting ana
speaking both in the afternoon, 2 p. in.,
and evening, 7 p. m., so as to accommo

Regarding the reported fusion in

"The telegraph lines are burdened

A great many men boast that they
belong to this or that party. This is no
dcubt true, and their actions prove it
But does it ever occur to such men that
they are only advertising themselves as
political ciphers when they say such
things? No citizen, who proposes to be
a factor in this government, should
allow any party to own him.
The producers of the south have had
the same experience during the past
year that the farmers of the north west
had in 1889. They have harvested one
of the greatest crops they have ever
had, yet prices are so low that they can
not realize anything out of their prod
ucts. The political effect promises to
be similar that experienced in Kansas
and Nebraska two years ago.
The Daily Sun suggests Bud Lindsey
as a running mate for Harrison. It de
clares him to be a "representative re
publican." That's right. Bud is very
frequently chosen by his brother repub
licans to represent them in countv and
state conventions, and once upon a
time they talked seriously of electing
him to represent them in the legisla
ture. Editor Bowlby of the Crete Demo
crat is bearing down hard on the demo
crats of Saline county. He says:
"The fellows who ride on annuals
were in it, and are delegates to the State
convention. The money power is now
showing its hand, its hirelings and
satraps are actively at work setting up
delegations and fixing the caucuses.
When such men stand for democracy

Elsewhbre will be found notice of
the meeting of the national committee
in Omaha April 11th and 12th, and a
proposed grand rally on April 12th.
This meeting should be thoroughly ad
vertised throughout Douglas and ad
joining counties, aud Otuaha should be
given a fitting fore-runner of what is
coming July 4th. There is strong talk
among Lancaster county independents
of having a grand rally at Lincoln
about the sanio time and securing one
or two of these national orator for
speakers. This is a capital idea, and
should be put into practice at once.
But it won't put itself into practice any
more than the plans for a ratification
meeting did a month ago.

The democraMc party will go before
the country In the coming campaign with
a muchly mixed record on the silver
question. It can't win with any candl

out the people's party wonderfully by
its policy or "heap talk" and do nothing,
Switzerland has set aside all other
legal tender in that country except gov
ernment money as issued by the govern
ment alone, paper money, full legal

Opinion of the Iowa Tribune.
Concentration and consolidation are the
order of the day, and we are glad to note
a step in that direction in which we can
see naught but good to all parties con
cerned. Tub Alliance and Indepen
dent, both of Lincoln, Neb., annouaced
in last week's issue that they have decid
ed to consolidate. They have been two
of the most excellent reform papers In
the country, but it has seemed to us a
waste of talent, energy and money to
continue their separate publication In
the same state and in the same city. The
experience of the Tribune convinces us
that this move will be to the great bene tit
of all interested. We are not yet Inform
ed who will be editor-in-chief, but there
will be no lack ot excellent material from
the staff of both papers. We extend our
congratulations In the full hope that the
wisdom of the consolidation will be
speedily and amply demonstrated.
No Wonder at All.
The silver issue is dead, so far as the
democracy is concerned, for this caw
paign. 1 he tariu is immutable. It is a
wrong. Its fastening upon the nation
was due to democratic treachery, just as
was the shelving of silver. There will be
no real differences betweeu tie two great
parties at the November election. Is it
any wonder that the voters are turning to
the new party for a chance to express
their views. Lincoln Herald.
Another "Death Knell."
Unless the leaders of the democracy
heed the warnings of history; unless they
comply with the rising demand for the
rehabilitation of silverj and the loosening
of financial distress: unless they antagon
ize the republican party on this main
issue of the politics of to-day, thfir party
will disband just as the whins did under
similar circumstances. If they adopt the
gold standard policy in the vain hope of
holding a few eastern votes in the elect
oral college, they will meet the fate of
all double-dealing, time-serving hypo
rxites. The crisis will be reached in the
Chicago convention. If that body shall
nominate Cleveland and adopt a republi
can plank on ti e silver question, it is the
death knell of the party.
Our three home insurance companies,
located in Nebraska, wrote last year 25
per cent of ihe total lire insurance of
this state, as against 75 per cent written
by over one hundred eastern companies
doing business in Nebraska. This
shows that the people have confidence
in homo companies and are disposed to
keep their money at home instead of
sending it east and continually draining
the money from the west, and making
it scarce and hard to get, even at high
rates of interest.

The campaign of 1S93 will be one of
the most exciting and momentous in
the history of the nation.
The great battle of the people against
Plutocracy is to be fought. Victory
for the People depends on their zeal
and energy in spreading the light. The
Alliance-Independent will be a great
power in arousing and educating the
people. It should be in the hands of
every independent voter. It should be
in the hands of thousands of democrats
and republicans who are willing to read
both sides. Its columns will be an
arsenal from which the soldiers of re
form may arm themselves with facts,
figures and arguments. The Alliance-
Independent will give full and
accurate reports of the great conven
tions of D2. It will give the news of

dacy for congress from this district.
"You can say for me," said Mr.
Thompson, "that I am not a candidate
for congress under any circumstances
whatsoever. I believe that Hon. O M.
Kem has made the most efficient rep
resentative this district has ever had in
congress, and has earned a renomina-
tlon. His gallant race in '00, his bank
ing bill, his hard work for the people,
and the fact that any congressman can
do faribetter work in his second term
than in his first, make3 it imperative
that he should be returned. I think he
will be renominated by acclammation."
