AMONG OUR EXCHANGES.
While Uncle Sam lie dreaming under
the anaesthetic treatment of quack doc
tors about the glory and greatness at
tached to citizenship in thii country,
banking bloodsucker are extracting the
life-force from bis vein while manu
facturing microbes are gnawing away

It is well understood by every man at
all conversatt with the political impul
ses of last rear's campaign that the elec
tion of Gov. Boies was due to the tact
that through the Railway Employes
Association the vote of the railroad men
of the state was cast practically as a
unit for him. It was admitted by some
members of the organization that their
officers determined how 'they should
vote and that their tickets were placed
in their hands within 43 hours of elec
tion. We had occasion during the cam- j
paign to show the character of this or- j
gimzation and particularly to show that
the railroad men were exactly the ones
to be most benefitted by the reforms
urged by the mea against whom they
were beins organized, and that they
weie being used by their employers as a
weapon against tnenien to wnom a Kin
dred interest should ally them. Farm
Our Euler's Occupations.
Our eiehtv-four rulers (!) in the
United States Senate have the following
avocations by which to make a living;
Three journalists (Ptfl'er).
Two railway officials.
Two public officials.
One miner (Jones).
One miner and stock raiser (Shoup).
Oue car builder (McMllan).
One clergyman (Kyle).
One real estate dealer.
One marble quaryman.
No farmers and wage workers, yet
these same are eighty per cent of the
nation. Are we represented or mis
represented? We are to blame.
Our ru.ers (?) in the United States
House of Representatives, have the fol
lowing way of getting their living when
out of office:
Two hundred lawyers.
Forty -three farmers and planters.
Three lawyers and farmers.
Two farmers and stock raisers.
Two bankers and farmers.
Two pubUs officials.
Two real estate dealers. .
One lawyer and insurance agent.
One lawyer and fruit grower.
Une farmer ana speculator.
One manufacturer and merchant.
One merchant and banker.
One banker and ceal operator (Huff).
One wool merchant.
One literary man.
One hotel man.
One r ilroad manager.
One warehouse man.
O.ie lumber man.
Tnirteen without occupations, who if
they were laborers would be called
tramps but now M. C's. Labor ought to
have two hundred and seventy out of
the above number, but instead it is a
plute house. The most that can be said
is, that the Alliance has nine members,
and the farmers have all told forty-five
members. The lawyers and most of the
balance are as a class the fuglemen and
retainers ot the joint stock companies of
the nation. What chance has labor in
such a gat)g, personally considered?
None. Yet it is its own fault, if lab r
allows this to continue. The present
congress will wok faithfully for their
clients. Wall Strsvt, even by doing noth
ing. Labor is already robbed, squeezed
dry under the wage system and there
fore has nothing to fee the scamps.
And, next time? Fx-
The prospects of a bounteous harvest
of small grain throughout the state is
excellent. The farmers of Nebraska
have it withib their power to strike a
blow at monopoly aed trusts in the
selection of their supply of twine to be
used in binding their grain. Forty-six
of the largest twine factories in the
United Stales are in a combination to
control the product and advance the
price of binder twine. One of the fac
tories which has religiously refused to
enter the combine is happily located at
Fremont, Neb. vs. The .Nebraska Bin
der Twine Co.
Their twine is made from hemp fibre,
grown by Nebraska farmers, every acre
of which" reduces the acreage of corn,
oats, wheat, rye, etc., of which there is
an over-productioii. Money paid lor
Nebraska made twine remains in the
state and thereby is kept in circulation
among our citizens
There is another important cot sidera
tion in selecting binder twine, i. its
length in feet per pound. Because of
the superior strength of hemp riber it
can be spun more finely than foreign
fiber, consequeutly a pound of hemp
twine will bind more grain than foreign
fibers and retain a sullicient strength to
The greatest argument, however, in
favor of the home-made article is the
fact that the Fremont twine factory is
selling its product direct to the con
sumer at manufacturers' prices, which
are less than the jobbirg trade can sell
other twines to dealers. In view cf
these facts it would stem that the duty
of Alliances and farn ers is very plain.
The Nebraska Binder Twine Co. of
Fremont should be supported.
The twine can be obtained from the
Alliance State Agent, J. W. Hartley,
Lincoln, Nob , or from the factory at
Fremont. 50-1 1

pating baying a road grader will tind it
greatly to Lheir interest to call on or

ments for twine for this seasons harvest
and will issue a circular letter giving
prices in a few days. Make no contracts
for twine before getting his prices.

The people of the Old Dominion are
on fire with enthusiasm for the new
movement. The legislative council of
the Farmers' Alliance of the state have
issued an address to the people which
closes in the following words:
We believe that tho St. Louis plat
form embodies that for which our fore
fathers fought, ai'd for which we, the
people, should earnestly contend,
namely, the liberty of the individual
and the life and perpetuation of the

It was for liberty that they made
their plea, and, lighting, won it.
Mark you well, fellow-citizens, here
are no new-fangled ideas born of the
vapors of to- ay, but the salf-same
grand old precepts of the fathers seven
times tried by fire and never yet proved
dross. They are our precious legacies,
won by the swords and brains of our
country's her?es and statesmen, and it
is our "sacred duty to maintain them in
their purity, and hand thorn down un
sullHd to our cihldren.
Whether or not it suits us, is not at
all the question. It is: Shall we retain
our homes, build up our section,
strengthen our state, perpetuate a
government of the people, and hand
down the liberties for which our fathers
shed their blood, to our children and
children's children for all time to

The Great Vest quotes Mr. Donnelly,
in an interview after the late committee
meeting at Omaha, as saying:
"On Monday, Jthe 4th of July, the

the representative of the Great West.
"I do," replied Mr. Donnelly. "You

180,000 democratic majority. But at
our meeting at Omaha Mr. Davis told
me that he actually believed that the

told me of one meeting he had address

issue of April 4th appeared an article
on "poultry" by W. J. Hickox of Alma,

was out making speeches on ihe "Im

read by the literary editor who is not
well up in Mr. IPs chirography, and
knows very little about chickens ex

Hence the nam s of several fancy breeds
