THE 2 ALLIANCE-INDEPENDENT.
THE PEOPLE'S PARTY.
Good Tidings From Various States
New Party Gaining Ground
The Situation in Maine, Georgia,
diana, Washington, California
'Tidings of Great Joy."
The reform movement seems to
thrive well in the "glorious climate of
California." Plans for the organiza
tion of the state into people's party
clubs have been formed and are being
put in operation.
The nominating of Weaver and Field
was ratified by a ratified by a grand
meeting at San Francisco. All classes
of citizens are falling into line. The
new party will elect several congress
The People's party is organized and
hard at work in the "Pine Tree
State.", L. C. Bateman, candidate for
governor, is in the field, making
rousing speeches and working up the
people. Maino was the banner state inJ
the old greenback movement and there
is no telling what she may do again.
the nominee for governor is William
L. Peck a well to do farmer. A f I'll
state and electoral ticket is named. In
his speech before the state convention
the chairman said "If the Alliance
should die tomorrow it would have ac
complished one grand work if no more,
and on its tomb could be written 'It has
destroyed ail sectionalism.' The peo
ple's party has drawn the north and the
south together, and has done more
than all other agencies combined to
wards wiping out sectional feeling."
the fight was inaugurated at the great
Weaver meeting at Vincennes.
Throughout the state the new movement
is gaining ground. Leroy Templeton
the people's candidate for governor is
stirring up the animals.
Ralph Beaumont has been out stir
ring up the people on the Pacific coast.
He delivered a great speech at Tacoma,
Wash., a few days ago. The chances
of success in that state are good.
Ignatius Donnelly is the standard
bearer of the people's party and he will
make the grandest campaign ever
made in Minnesota. The republicans
have induced a small faction of Alliance
men headed by two or three self
seeking politicians to nominate a man
named Baker on what is called an
"Alliance ticket," but it will cut a
small figure in the campaign. The re
publicans have put up their strongest
anti-monopoly leader for governor in
the hope of checking the rising tide,
but it will be in vain.
The Independents Away Ahead
Palmer, Neb., Aug. 1, '92
The independents of this vicinity
held a grand rally at the opera house
here on last Thursday evening. The
largest crowd ever seen hero assembled
and enthusiasm ran high. W. F.
Critchfield of Fullerton was the orator
of the evening and discussed the issues
of the day in a clear and convincing
After the meeting an independent
club of 116 voting members was formed

since. This was twice over and two to

'Such men as Hatch, and Bland, and
Pierce, and Mansur and Lewis, and
Senators Morgan and Daniel, need have
no aspirations in the Cleveland party.
Plutocracy has them marked for des
truction. It is only a question of time.
They stood for the people, and all such
men, and all those who have ever even
winked at the Farmer's Alliance, will
soon realize that the spirit of intoler
ance intends to destroy them. These
men are among tho ab.est and most
efficient men of the day, but plutociacy
has placed the seal of its docm
upon them, and they must
go. Why? Because there' is no
"room at the top ' in the Cleveland
party, every place worth having is
filled by a henchman of plutocracy, and
patient merit is turned down and re
quired to do drudgery by whipping the
discontented into line. The same is
true to the same or a greater degree in
the Harrison party. (They should no
longer be called the democratic and
republican parties because they have
departed from the principles). Thous
ands of tho best men in both these
parties go unrewarded and unrecog
nized because the top is full and they
are crowded down. National Econo
"Losses an t Lies" shows up where
"prohts" com3 from and how they are
obtained. It is a scorcher, and don't
you forget ic. See our list.
THE POLITICAL POOL-
Mr. E. P. ItOGGEN,
My Dear Sir: Wouldn't it be a
good idea for you to write another let
ler to Johnny Watson about now? You
should hustle around and see tho "old
time machine men" at once for there
are "several large-sized breakers
ahead." "It will not do to let every one
into the secret. Gather a few of the
select together." and "make a little
medicine" at once or the G. O. P.'s
name will be pants.
The Political Pool.
Tom Benton & Co., alias the board of
Dear Sirs: It is now about time for
you to get your show in order for your
annual tour through Nebraska. I sug
gest that you put in Col. Johnsoa for
ringmaster. He is a good one. I sr'g-
gest also that you send out a trusted
agent to select from the railroad hench
men of the state a goodly number to
act as "supes." Have them thoroughly
"coached" so they won't make
any bad breaks. Then advertise
your show well, and invite the
local "calamity howlers" to be present
and air their grievance?. I think,
however, it will be well for you not to
invite "Ca'amiiy Bill" Dech. He is
"bad medicine." He might write
another letter. Don't say anything to
Chas. G. Dawes of Lincoln. Ho is an
ugly customer. He knows too much.
He might bo too much for tho ring-master.
Also you'd better get A. J.
Gustin out of the state if possible. He
is the most "cantankerous cuss" in the
state. If he hears your show is on the
road, he'll travel a thousand miles to
see it And he'll paralyze s'mebody
sure. Get the U. P. and B. & M. com
panies to fix up a few new figures for
you. Season them well with gall of
the same brand used last year.
These suggestions are free, gratis,
also private and strictly confidental.
P. P. You ought to have that re
duction on green apples from Falls
City to Kearney, by way of Omaha,
preserved in alcohol and exhibited in a
large glas3 jar. It will prove a draw
ing card. P. P.
N. B. Get Boyd to loan you the.
original copy of hisfamous veto. Have
it framed for exhibition. It will be a
great "hit" sure. Also look out for
Johnson not the King Bee, but that
other Johnson up at Noi folk. He's a
