For The Allia.nc-Ind2pksdent :"

Till we hear the battle horn loud and faster;
And the men go marching down from the
farm and from the t iwn,
And the places of renown know disaster.
With this mortgage on the farm.

Resolved, That while we deplore the
social condition that makes strikes ne
cessary or even possible, and that em
ployers in time of profound peace will
hire an army of over 32,320 Pinkerton
thugs to shoot private citizens, yet we
believe that the two old parties are
din ctly responsible for this condition
of affairs. We believe that if anarchy
ever comes and throws its baleful
shadow over our land it will bs but the
result of the infamous legislation of
the two old parties and not the out
growth of any new political organiza

classes against the aggression of the
strong and powerful is far from being a
perfect human government, and that
the government which makes no at
tempt to protect the weaker is organ-

Wauneta, Neb., Aug. 1.
At the people's independent conven
tion at Wauneta, Chase county, Hon.
L. G. Ruggles was the unonimous
choice for renomination of the Sixty
seventh district, and the following
resolutions were adopted:
Resolved, first, That we heartily en
dorse the preamble and platform adopt
ed by the people's independent party at
Omaha on July 4, 1892, and earnestly
ommend the principles therein enun
ciated to the thoughtful consideration
of the electors of tbo Sixty-seventh
representative district of the state of
2. That wo earnestly request our
representatives in all legislative bodies
to spare no honorable means t6 have
the principles as set forth in said pre
amble and platform enacted as soon as
may be into laws for the benefit of th3
3. That we demand the speedy re
peal of the numerous class laws that
now encumber the statute books
cf the state of Nebraska
and in their stead demand
the passage of laws giving (in fac5 as
well as in name) equality to all and
special privileges to none.
Resolved, That whereas thero exists
an organized body of military men
belonging to no one sta'o of our great
union of states, owned and employed by
capital for the sole and only purpose to
oppress and intimidate labor, and
whereas we believe that the congress
of the United S ates is the only power
vested with authority to declare war,
therefore we commend the action of
the citizens of Homestead, Pa , in man
fully defending their homes against
these unauthorized invaders of their

Nelson, Neb., August 2, 1892.
The independents of Nelson had a
grand ratification meeting on July 30th.
Messrs. Dech and Chamberlain ad
dressed the people during the day and
Mr. Wright spoke to a full houso in the
evening. The meetings were very en
thusiastic. O wing to the slowness of the U. S.
mails, the notices of the meeting did
not reach th-iir destination in the dif
ferent precincts in time for them to
come to the meeting, consequently
there were only about 1,000 present.
The club has recently bought a fine
twenty foot flag, and the ladies of the
"Woman's Weaver and Meld Campaign
Club" have worked upon it the?o word:
"Weaver and Field Are In the Mi idle
of the Road."
This flag was husg up on Main street
and caused the g. o. p.(s a great deal of
trouble. They were heart broken to
think that the flag should bo so dese
Threats and curses were indulged in
when there were not 0 many inde
Some brainy lawyers threatened" to
send for the U. S. marshal to arrest
somebody, presumably the women.
"Whom the gods would destroy they
first make mad."
But the flag floated gaily all day, as
it -will on many similar occasions during
the campaign. '
It was the intention of the club to
raise a liberty pole on this occasion,
but it did not get here in time so wo
will have another meeting for that pur
pose. Mrs. L. M. Kemmerer.
