THE ALLIANCE -INDEPENDENT.
Ip every independent paper, and
every independent speaker in Nebraska
will take up the exposures of corrup -tion
in our state institutions ani keep
them before the people from novr till
election day, the republican ticket will
not get 50,000 votes.
The people of Nebraska are a
prosperous as the people of any other
state," says the Bee. Very likely, bus
that's not saying much. The people oi
all the agricultural states have suffered
from the same unjust financial and
fiscal legislation, and hence they are
all in the same boat.
The corporations kno n it Is a" hope
less task for them to undertake to
elect either of the old party state
tickets. Hence they will devote their
attention mainly to the legislature and
particularly the senata. Neither old
party has the least hope of securing a
majority in the legislature. Hence the
effort will be made to elect corporation
candidates on either ticket. Combina
tlons wll ba made to elect corporation
republicans In republican districts and
corporation democrats in democratic
districts. By this means, the corpor
ations hope tp elect men enough in
both old parties to form a combination
as they did two years ago, and thus
prevent all reform legislation. This is
the scheme that is being worked right
now. Let no man be deceived. "Fore
warned in fore-a-med." Let every in
dependent in the state go to work with
all his might to thwart this scheme.
Canaan, Ind. Sept 23, 1892.
Dear Sir: Thinking that the people's
party folks in Nebraska vvduW like to
hear from their friends in Indiana, and
having been here in my old home in
Jefferson county since the 15th of this
month, I thought I would write you.
I have baen holding, aid expect to
hold, public meetings here in this
county every evening un'il I return to
my home in Nebraska, which will ba
about the Jith of next month.
You can say to our people tkat old
Indiana is coming all right. I am hav
ing large and , enthusiastic meeting?
every where I gi. The people are pet
ting very much disgusted with the two
old parties, and clamoring for some
thing better than they have been get
ting. They hail with joy the doctrines
of the people's party when thos9 doc
trinesare explained to them, and are
just as ready to censure the two old
parties when they have their record
explained to them and they see that
record in its true light.

withstanding the fact that labor and
its productr are. and have been, on
the decline for the past twenty years,
the salaries of government ocials,
" especially thoae near the top. are
continually on the increase. There
has nobeen a salary of this kind re
duced this session, while many have
been increased. There is ' never a
session but some committee reports
in favor of creating new o fices at a
high salary or recommends an In
crease in the pay of those already in
official position. Wheat at 50 cents
and an increase of an already suffi
cient salary do not exactly look well
in the same list. Have the, farmers
noticed this, though?
A Bright Future.
Cheer up, friend, " said the parson
to the editor, you have a bright fu

That's what's bothering me,"

Can Man Change th Climate?
The fact that man has been able to
produce many great changes on the
face of the earth is a tribute to his in
dustry and ingenuity. But it is pos
sible that he is bringing about effects
of equal importance without intending
them. This reflection is suggested by
a recent article of Dr. J. E. Taylor on
the question whether the British
climate is changing.
It is only within the last ten years
that the great part that dust plays in
weather-making has come to be
properly understood. The colors of
sunrise and sunset are largely, perhaps
mainly, due tp the presence of in
visible dust in the atmosphere. The
wind and the temperature of the air
are also affected by dust. The ex
istence of clouds u ay be entirely de
pendent upon the presence of dust par
ticles. Dr. Taylor suggests that the im
mense quantity of dust discharged into
the air by the innumerable fuel-consuming
engines of this age of mechani
cal progress may increase the cloudi
ness of a country like England, and
thereby lead to colder and gloomier
When we recall the minuteness of
man in" comparison with the great
globe that he inhabits and the vast
ocean of air that surrounds him, it ap
pears very surprising that he should be
able to bring about such effects.
But it must be remembered that he
is dealing continually with giant pow
ers of nature which are so delicately
balanced that a mere touch, as it were,
suffices sometimes to set them operat
ing in a new way.
Ready for Business.
To be diligent in business is com
mendable, but surely one may err on
the side of too great diligence by be
ing ready for a trade at an unsuitable
time. A map peddler, in pursuance of
his vocation, chanced to stop at a hotel
in a Long Island village. A friend,
whom he had known elsewhere, seeing
him at the hotel, invited him to a party
which he was to give the same even
ing. The map peddler came, and when re
ceived by his host at the door, was
found with three maps in his hands.
"How de do?" he said. "Got any
nails? I thought as there was to be a
good many folks here to-night, I'd
hang up some of my maps here and let
'em look at 'em. Good chance f er busi
ness. Maybe some of 'em would like
to buy 'em, and I could explain 'em
just as well as not."
His host endeavored to persuade him
that it would not be a suitable place
to urge his business, much to the man's
"Now you don't understand," urged
the peddler. " 'Twould amuse and in
terest 'em, they'd be pleased, and be
sides that, bein' visitors, they'd feel
sort of 'bliged to buy."
But he was then spoken to so plainly
that he was forced to abandon greatly
to his surprise as well as his regret
his project of mingling business with
It is a very good thing to know how
to swim, but a bad thing to be reckless
as a result of the accomplishment. At
a riverside picnic not long ago some
young men asked a lady to go out with
them in a boat.
"Come on!" they called. "There
isn't a particle of danger."
"Well," the. lady said, "I suppose
you all know how to swim?"
The young men were compelled to
confess that not one of them could
"0 well," said the lady, "in that case
I will go with you. If none of you can
swim, you will be careful."
She entered their boat, quite confi
dent that they would not tip it, nor
rock it, nor play any of the jokes which
foolish boys sometimes play on the
water, "because we can swim, you
