The Flint (Mich.) Citizen ft April 23rd
contains 18 columns of niortgsge sale
of real estate farms, agzregating
about 4,600 acres. The average amount
for which these little fcrnis are to be
old is $3.15 per acre. Now if the own
ers of little garden truck farms in the
manufacturing state of Michigan, with
in a stone's throw of the bin cities ot
Chicago, Detroi: and Milwaukee, are
being sold out in townships because
they cannot raise a mortgage of 13 per
per acre, isn't it about time the calamity

Silver men are becoming numerous
outside of Colorado, and the earnest
ri aba with which thev are working in'
dicates the rapidity ef its growth. Dif
ferent political interests, the Farmers
Allianco, the people's party, Trades
Unions, asseuiolies are all drawing
nearer together, the final result of
which will be the crystalization of their
views into one grand combination
which will work in unison for free
coinage. Tin Cup Times.
It now transpires that the Wyoming
trouble had its origin in a scheme of
the large stockmen to get rid of the
small stockmen and homestead settlers,
and resorted to hired thugs to do so.
Without investigation the gsvernment
sent its soldiers to assist these Hired
assassins to diive these settlers from
their home. This might be called
"protection," such protection as vultur
es give to lambs, such protection has the
republican party been giving the com
mon people. Onida (S. D.) Journal.
The New Xation thinks "the mad
scramble of a mob of 25,000 people to
secure claims in the just opened Indian
land reservation in Oklahoma has offer
ed another object lesson of the basis of
all claims to property in land. Tkere
is but one original basis of property in
land and that is a grab. If you trace
back the title far enough you will
never find anything but a grab at the
end of it."
What are you doing for the success of
the people's cause this fall? Reform
friends should profit by the oriental
proverb, "If tby enemy be a moust- fan
cy it an elephant" and get to work.
Alliance Standard.
Will Carry Georgia-
A Washington dispatch of May 1, to
Chicago Herald (dem ) says:
Representative Lester of Georgia, to
day returned from a visit to his state.
While home Mr. Lester took occasion
to study the political situation, and he
reports the Farmers' Alliance making
alarming progress. Mr. Lester is a
democrat but he insists that his party
will have to exert itself to the utmost to
carry the stale this fall. "The people
of the state want tree
silver, and they demand several other
thingi indorsed by the Allianco," says
Mr. Lester- "They are becoming dis
satisfied with both the old parties
Georgia is considered strongly democra
tic, and it has always been so, but it
looks to me as if the Alliance would
carry it at the coming election. Unless
something is done to check the growth
of the Aliiance down there. I sincerely
believe the third party will be able to
secure the presidential electors from
Georgia." Mr. Lester's opinion is sup
ported by that of Mr. Livingston and
some of the other members of the
Georgia delegation in congress. Even
Mr. Blount, the eldest member of tLe
delegation, declines to run again. Hi9
reason, it is said, being that the Alliance
is so formidable in his district as to
practically irsure the defeat of any can

The Chadron Citizen requests the
Enterprise to "itemize Kern's record in
congress and see if he has really done
anything." Nothing would give us more
pleasure, although we cannot give it
complete. Keni voted for an indepen
dent Speaker. He voted against the
bill appropriating $100,000 to carry sup
plies to Russia. About one year pre
vious to this vote in company with Me
Keighan he visited Washington; and
tried to get a republican congress to
make an appropriation for the relief of
the Nebraska drouth sufferers, but it
was refused. His government banking
bill is attracting attention as one of the
soundest financial measures that has
been introduced into congress for many
years. He is a valuable member on the
committee on Indian affairs. He voted
for the free coinage of silver. And as
one of our independent exchanges we
can't now recall which one, put it.
"Educating ignorant republicans at $50
per educate." Lastly, but not leat-t,
while taking an active inteiest in all
legislation, he has ever by word and
vote remained loyal to the people. It is
.a record of which every independent
may justly feel proud. Atkinson Enter

Although winter still lingers in the
lap of spring the annual exodns of
wealthy capitalists has begun from
Boston. These canary birds have be
gun their annual flight Jrom the Hub to
escape the unpleasant visits of the tax
assessor, who is liable to pry into their
private affairs and cause them to con
tribute toward the maintenance of lo
cal institutions. It does not pay for a
man to invest his money in real estate
nowadays so long as he can escape tax
ation by investing in mortgages, bends
and stocks and keeping his movable
possessions out of the reach of the tax
assessor's clutches. Omaha Bee. .

at the rate the farmers are being swept
off the face of the land in that state by
the foreclosure of farm mortgage there
will in a few decades not be a farmer

land. What claw of agriculturists occupy

"Did it ever occur to yon that there
are no more Americas for Columbus to
discover? Where are our people to go
when these scoundrels have effected the
consummation of their wjrk? Where
are the soldiers who marched under
Lee and Stonewall Jackson, Grant and
Sherman? Their lives are slowly being
ground out under this nefarious order
of things that has made a nation of
aristocrats and paupers. In my state
of Minnesota the old parties have been
narrowed down to the villsges, asd not
the best element of the viLages at that.
They are not farmers, but real estate
meu. insurance agents, sewing machine
agents and that class of men, who hold
about the same relation to humanity
that the flea does to the dog. '
If you staad silently by and allow
these things, how can "you justify your
self to posterity? How can you stand
by the old political parties that have al
lowed these results to work themselves
out? There is the indictment against
the old parties that by their silence they
have given consent. Only in an upris
ing of the people, such as the people's
party is, can we have any hope 'of the
preservation of liberty.
The bill for the demonetization of
silver was literally bought through con
gress by an English capitalist, who came
over for that express purpose. When
General Grant was asked why he signed
the bill he replied that he didn't know
the demonetization of silver was in it.
And nobody knew it was in it except
that arch liend ef our politics, John
Sherman of Ohio. They're talking of
nominating him for the presidency, and
I hope to God they will Why, I think
that man has done more harm to hu
manity than all the criminals locked up
in our penitentiaries put together.
Wall street has both the old parties
by the throat,
Bradstreets declare in a recent report
that there has been a decrease of 18 per
cent in the values of thii country, yet
the millionaires are getting richer.
According to Poor's manual the
amount of watered stock in the United
States is $5,000,C00,O00. Out of thi
comps the wealth of the Jay Goulds and
the Vanderbilts. On thiswatered stock
the people of this country pay $10 OOG,
000 of interest. All the railroads in
Minnesota could be duplicated for $10,
000, and yet they are set down at
the value of $44,000 a mile, and the peo
ple of Minnesota pay interest oa $44,-
ouo tor every mile of railroad, a sum
that represents not a dollar of capital.
And it is this way all over the country.
You have an illustrious gathering of
clergymen here in your city. What are
they warring against? Why, against
human sin, but what is human sin but
human weakness under government
pressure? Sin i? but the bloody sweat
of poverty. Let the clergymen address
themselves to the great govermental
questions. What is the use of going
around with lint, plasters and medicine
picking ur the men who have been
knocked down and robbed on the road
to Jericho? Would it not be better to
capture the n:en who are doing the
knocking down and robbing.
unme is tne result of poverty. This
is shewn by the history of Australia,
Where England sent all her worst crim
inals, and under fair circumstances they
grew into good men and women. Why,
the nrst tamilies of Virginia are de-
tended from girls picked up on the
streets of England and shipped to the
coast of the colonies, and they develop
ed into a noble lot of men and women.
No, our country is going to destruc
tion and ruin, and worse than that, to
moral ruin. YY hat means this Austra
lian ballot, but that the pep'e have be
come so depraved that a man cannot be
trusted alone. Why, if Gladstone whs
to appear to-morrow at one end of this
town and Jay Gould at the other, more
people would go out to see Gould thau
would go to see Gladstone. But the
people will not be good to the country
until the country is good to the people,
and the country that persists in making
rascals into millionaires is not worth
fighting for. Now my friends we must
rally to the support of the people's
party. The tree askad the ax why it al
ways struck in the same place, and the
ax replied; "How else can I bring you
down?" And so we mii't stand together,
organize and keep striking in the same
place. We have no hope in the old po
litical parties. They are rotten to the
core, not the rank and file of them, but
the infamous powers that dominate
them, the selfish politicians, the press,
the powerful and grinding corporations,
the purchased courts of law. What are
the judges of our supreme courts but
the hirelings of Jay Gould?
I say to you as sure as God lives there
is no hope for the republic except in the
people's party movement, and if you
don't stand by it you are as false as hell
to yourselves, false to the roof tree over
your head, false to the babe in the cra
dle, false to ail posterity. Stand up
and make this light. Urge upon all to
form people's clubs. It is humanity's
cause. It is your cause, not ours, and
we cannot hope for success tnless our
voices kindle a fire for a good cause and
for righteousness. Then we shall feel
that we have done a good work for the
beauty and dignity of civilization.
Born in South Carolina, transferred
at three j ears of age to Texas, reared in
the cactus wilds of this state, you can
not expect to hear the rounded periods
of rhetoric yoic have just heard from
Mr. Donnelly. What I shall say to you
will be in Texas parlance: plain cowboy
talk. We must confront theconditions
as we find them to-day. Tne people's
party faces three problems, the greatest
problems of civil government: land,
transportation and money. What do vo
find about land? There is enough of it
in the United States to furnish homes
for three-fifths of the people of the globe
and yet not be more densely populated
than Germany, yet there are 4,750,000
mortgaged homes in America and 34,-
100,000 of the people are without homes
of their own. How did the few get the
lnnd? WThy, down in Texas the demo
crats would say, 'Those infernal repub
licans gave it to 'em.' I voted the demo
cratic ticket, my father voted it all his
life, and he is 80 years old. But, I tell
my democratic friend3 to tell the truth
about then selves and abide by the con
sequences. The fact is that Stephen. A.
Douglas and Jeff Davis introduced the
first land subsidy bill in congress ten
years before any republican goc there,
and the republicans have kept it up
ever since, except when Cleveland was
president, and then the democrats kept
it up. Now, I'll drop the land question
right here.
We are not anarcLists or the dis
gruntled office seekers that you read j
about. We hold that the dollar i creat
ed by man and in the reward of labor
and should e subservient to him. but
to-day money compels the tired tuatcle
to bend the knee in all part of the
country. In ISjO the world was shocked
by the announcement that America had
a millionaire. The old world couldn't
understand how it could happen under
our form of government. In 18s we
had five of them. Now there are 30.000
millionaires in the country. How
much longer can this go on until the
mass of the peaple are serfs? Both
parties try to rover it all up under
some borf of a sleight of hand, hocus po
ena legerdemain that they call tariff.
Admit that it is a tax. if you please.
something like 113 a head, as some of
our southern democrats figure it, how
about the tariff on watered stock of 1-1
a head? The democrats are just as high
tariff a party as there ever was in the
country. What did they kill Morrison's
bill for eight years ago?
ny Cleveland stood by and kept
still while Morrison had three tariff re
form bills killed in a democratic bouse.
Cleveland was busy talking about coin
age. But when he saw the democratic
majority in the house reduced to eleven
he and Mills got fearfully exercised
about the tariff and ended up with the
Mills' bill, and you know what came
of it.
The two old parties are determined to
talk about nothing but tariff. I have
all mv life been taught to believe that
John Sherman was all that was pernio
ious and vile in polities, and I was
taught to revere just r.ueh men ai
Carlisle and (lornian. out when one
month ago I saw Carlislo and Gorman
and Morgan too, stand up on the same
floor and on the same day with John
Sherman and move that the money
question be referred to a joint commis
sion composed of the? emissaries of Great
Britain, I felt the name law that impell
ed me to detest John Sherman also mi
pelled me to despise and detest Carlisle
and Gorman. But the old parties talk
about their pedigrees, and get grand
and glorious about it. Well, I was
b rn in the state that threw the first
bomb against the American eagle, and
thank God that that eage swooped
down on the old pelicean at Appomattox
and picked every fenthor from its car
cus. I thank God that such a man as
Abraham Lincoln lived, and I know
that if to-day I could call his sacred
bones from the tomb he would help me
and you other reformers to write
another emancipation proclamation
that would not only free those black
boys, but the legions of white slaves be
They're coming, continued Mr.
Davis. He meant by this that voters
were coming into the people's party. He
described the advance of the movement
n the south where planters were not
getting cost for cotton. He
said the last straw that broke the
camel's back was the defeat in a demo
cratic house a few weeks ago of the free
coinage bill. He said tnat in the south
and went the fences were all down and
the people were coming by the

sovereign, and jjin us in the fight for
Mr. Schilling of Wisconsin described
the men who choose to remain in the
old political parties as canary birds that
have been born and trained in cages and
though the doors are open, do not know
any better than to stay in. He does
not blame the Goulds and the Vander
bilts for grabbing unearned millions at
the expense of the people. He blames,
as he says, the infernal fools who have
the votes and power to prevent and
don't do it. He advised the people to
cut loose from putrid reminiscences and
vote the 'ieket of the people's party.
Mr. Washburne was introduced as the
gentleman from the millionaire growing
state of Massachusetts a state which he
said, was more cursed than any other by
monopoly. To illustrate his idea of the
two old parties he told a storv of two
horses so lean that they could only stand
propping each other up. As to money he
said there wasn't half enough of it in
the country to transact the business of
the country. He claimed that "the 70
cent dollar" was an unfair term. It is a
100-cent dollar having just as much sil
ver in it as the first silver dollar coined.
It is a 70-cent dollar only when com
pared .with a gold dollar which
I is at a .id per cent premium.

Tb Banner Shipment of tht
rrofusely decorated
ilh flags and
banners, a long train of agricultural im
plements pulled into Omaha yesterday,
which left Mansfield, O . on Monday
nioining last consigned to F. L. Loomis
of this city, general western manager
of the Aultman & Taylor Machinery Co.
The train was in charge of Mr. I-oemis,
and was extensively advertUed along
the entire route and was greeted by
large and enthusiastic crowds of people.
The train consisted of thirty two cars.
tho contents being valued at 100,000,
and was hauled over the Chicago, Rock
Island & Pacific Ky., from Chicago by
two of their heaviest engines, and when
it is considered that the weight of the
train was 1.200 tons, some idea of the
work performed can be obtained. One
of the most interesting features of this
extraordinary shipment was an engine
and separator in full operation at the
rear end of the train. The arrange
ment of the details was in the hands of
Mr. Loomis, who hifs spent some weeks
in perfecting the plans for handling the
shipment, which is the large t single
shipment of the kind tver brought to
the west. The run from Mansfield was
on a daylight schedule and short stops
were made at all stations along the
route to afford the assembled multi
tudes an opportunity of examining the
train and witnessing the machinery in
motion. It was a gala day in Iowa
along the Bock Island road and at a
number of towns business was suspend
ed during the progress of the train,
schools were closed during the day and
a regular outpouring of grown people
and children welcomed the attractive
exhibition on wheels. The following
officials of the Aultman-Taylr Com
pany were with the train and heir
courtesy and intelligence in explaining
the operatii ns of the machines was
greatly appreciated by the risitors to
the train: F. L. Loomis, general west
ern manager; A. Kallmerton, secretary,
and John Reynolds, treasurer; also Mr.
F M. Loomis and various officials of the
Rock Island road in the operating and
freight departments. Tho train was in
spected by a large number of people at
Council Bluffs yesterday morning, and
reached Omaha at 0:80 a. m.. as per
schedule. The Aultman & Taylor Ma
chinery company are noted for their
train-load-load shipments throughout
the United States and Mxico, but it is
safe to say that the shipment in ques
tion, which was brought about by the
indefatigable energy and enterprise of
their western manager is way ahead of
all former efforts.

The campaign of 1882 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
Allianck-Indki'ENDEnt will be a great
power in aroumng 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
arsonal 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 '92. It will give the news of
the movement from all parts' of the
state and nation. It will give reports
of the work done by "the alliance
wedge" in congress. We want someone
in every community to solicit subscrip
