Mr. Oxnard's sugar factory is now
running again, but his "bounty boom'
Beems to have been lost in the shuffle.
The World-Herald has been asking
State Treasurer Hill some questions
about state funds. But it didn't ask
him why he ignores the law requiring
him to invest the permanent school
fund in outstanding state warrants. .We
would be glad to publish his answer to
the above question.
Last year Mr. Oxnard got nearly
$54,000 from Uncle Sam's strong box
as a bounty on the sugar he produced
If the state bounty had not been
abolished he would have got $27,000
more from the state. The indepen
dents saved that much to the tax
payers, by the passage of one bill.
ME. BEWICK'S EXPOSURE.
Wo have not space to comment on
Mr. Rewick's great exposure this week.
It is certainly of the most startling
character. It has produced a sensation
in Lincoln where all the parties are
known. Republicans can not deny the
charges, and dare not defend the men
charged. A few ef them try to laugh
We have examined into the evidence
on which the charges rest, and can say
that we believe it absolutely conclusive
and unassailable. Further we believe
that the members of the present board
of public lands and buildings are guilty
of complicity in the commi?sion of
This matter should be aired in every
political meeting from now till the
REP0ETS OF MEETINGS.
So many great meetmg3s are occur
ring in all parts of Nebraska that we
find our space inadequate to give such
full reports as we would like. But we
proposo to report them all as fully as
possible, and we urge our friends to
forward reports of all meetings as
promptly as possible.
Some patriotic independent at every
rally, held from now till the campaign
closes to take subscriptions for The
Alliance-Independent. These sub
scriptions may be taken under any of
the following offers:
Regular rates, $1.00 per year.
For three months, 25 cents.
In clubs of ten or more till after elec
tion, 10 cents.
Under these offers we ought to re
ceive 1,000 subscribers per day for the
next twenty days.
We would also urge our independent
friends In all parts of the state to in
vade the cities and towns. We believe
subscribers can be secured more easily
and rapidly there than anywhere else,
and at the same time more good can be
accomplished for our cause.
Every short time subscriber should
bo given to understand that the paper
will be stopped at the expiration of the
time unless he renews.
Oua mortgage record had to lie over
till next week to give space for Mr.
Donnelley claims he will carry
Minnesota by a large majority.
Crounse and Van Wyck meet in
their second discussion in Bohanan's
hall today at 2 p. ra.
Persons desiring Mr. Re wick to
speak at meetings and rallies should
address the state committee.
The independents of Lancaster
county should rally to the support of
their ticket. Every man on it deserves
to be elected.
WnEN Mr. Shamp is elected to con
gress, Buffalo Bill should engige
Field and Bryan to brandish butcher
knives in his Wild West show.
Hon. W. A. Poynter is making a
great campaign in the Third district.
The people have sized him up as the
right man to represent them in congress.
Send for copies of our mortgage
record for distribution. It will Ye
ready f oon. Prices, 25 for 15c; 50 for
25c; 100 for 40c In quantities of 300 or
more 25 cents per hundred.
OUR friends in the Fifth district
must pardon us this week for meager
reports of the McKeighan-Andrews
debate. We couldn't do justice to all
the great meetings at once. Next
week we will try to give fuller reports.
The World-Herald in generally
treating our speakers fairly. But when
father-in-law Crounse meets Van Wyck
Mr. Hitchcock's fairness goes glimmer
ing to a large extent. Level-headed,
unbiased men who heard the debate at
Beatrice say that Van Wyck won the
most signal victory of the campaign.
There is little doubt that the out
rages perpetrated on General Weaver
and his party in Georgia were perform
ed by hoodlums hired by democratic
campaign funds. Some people are
wanting to know if the fund the World
Herald has been raising has been used
for that purpose.
THE KEAENEY HUB AND ME- REM.
The Kearney Hub following its
natural bent is again trying to mis
represent Congressman Kem. It
quotes him as saying in his Kearney
speech that ho never opposed that part
of the Pickler bill relating to ac'ual
residents who had done the work and
deserve to acquire title. Then it
quotes from the congressional record:
"But I discover upon investigating
the matter further that I am opposed to
the whole bill-"
Now this was not what Mr. Kem said
in the house. The Hub omits one word
which changes the meaning entirely.
What Mr. Kem did say was:
"I discover on further investigating
the matter that I am opposed to the
passage of the whole bill."
The Hub leaves out the word "pass
age." Mr. Kem desired to prevent the
passage of the bill as a whole He
wanted it amended by striking out the
In the same speech in the house Mr.
"I am in favor of that portion of the
bill relating to actual settlers."
Why didn't the Hub quote these
Truly does the Lincoln Call say that
joint debates make a newspaper man a
liar for his party.
Hon. I. N. Leonard of Lancaster
county, people's candidate for state
senator, is setting a good example for a
lot of independent candidates. He gets
out and "rustles." Last week he came
to Lincoln to hold a series of meetings.
Finding them inadequately advertise,
he took right hold and posted the bills
himself. He is working with all his
might. He ought to ba elected, and
we believe he will be.
The republican papers of the Sixth
district are talking of Whitehead's
war record, and urging the voter3 to
support him on that account. Why
don't they sing the same song in the
First district? Mr. Shamp has as fine
a war record as Whitehead dare have,
and what is more he was made a cripple
for life in the service of his country
Consistency demands that all the re
publicans of the First district fall in
line for Shamp without delay.
"THE PEOPLE'S CAUSE."

the above title. It contains the follow
1. The Three-fold Contention of In
dustry, by Jas. B. Weaver.

paign by Senator Kyle, and Congress
These are a'l timely and able articles,
and they are very well printed and
The frontispiece of the book is a fine
portrait of Gen. Weaver.
Believing that a great many of our
readers will wr.nt this litt!e volume we
have concluded to make the following
To every subscriber sending in $1 00
for The Alliance-Independent for
the coming year wo will mail free a
copy of "The People's Cause." This
offer will hold good till November 1st.
We hope hundreds of our subscribers
whose subscriptions are expiring will
take advantage of this offer at once.
Mr. H. B. Miller of Wayne writes
that he heard three of the democratic
cand'date3 speak at Stanton not long
since. Mr. Gering, who wants to be
attorney general, said if the people
would only put the democrats in power
they would pass a law requiring the
state treasurer to turn the interest on
public funds into the treasury. He
was asked if the independents hadn't
passed such a law in 1891. He said no.
Keiper didn't know. Mr. Miller wants
to know if the voters can trust men in
office who are so ignorant of our laws.
Some time ago Mr. Powderly wrote
an article for the North American Re
view on "Labor and Protection" in
which he scored some hard hits against
Carnegie and other protected million
aires. Now Mr. Harrity Chairman of
the democratic national coramitteo is
using this article without Powderly's
consent as a democratic campaign docu
ment. This has called forth a most in
dignant protest from Mr. Powderly, in
which he scores thef democratic party
severely. He closes as follows:
FOR WEAVER AND FIELD.
I have written no campaign docu
ments for either the democratic or re
publican party, will not writo any, and
will not support the candidates of any
party but tho one which had the
honesty and manhood to lay claim to
the Knights of Labor by adopting the
preamble of the Knights of labor in its
national platform the people's party
candidates, General James B. Weaver
and General James G. Field. i ;
Prof. Howard's singing has been tho
mcst attractive feature at a number of
rallies. He should be kept in the field
all the time. Porsons who desiro his
services should write the state com
mittee. Where appointments are
made for him an organ, and organist
should always be provided.
Falmouth Guide: There is Whitoi
law Reid, the running mate of Benja
min Harrison, who supported Horace
Greely a few years ago on the Demo
cratic ticket. He is also opposed to
organized labor. There's General A.
E. Stevenson of Illinois, the Demo
cratic nominee for the vice presidency,
who, like General Weaver, is one of
those awful Greenbackers. He haa
also expressed some very strong views
on currency reform, including the
free coinage of silver and the substi
tution of greenbacks for national bank
notes. An odd running mate for
