Dech and Hainer at Geneva.
Geneva, Neb., Oct. 6, 1802.
Yesterday occurred the debate be
between Dech and Hainer at this place,
and inasmuch as the 11 id his given a
garbled and unfair account of the meet
ing, it will bo no more than right to
have the truth puu'ished. The only
truth in the report was the 6ize of the
crowd aid that there was a "special
train run down from Fairmont in the
interest of the republican party," and
every parson lhat would wear the label,
"Fairmont Republican Club," was
given free transportation. The grand
club paraled our streets and consisted
of men, women and children, and had
in its ranks just twenty nine voters by
account. Had a rote b cn taken during
the debate, and all wiDg- the Jadies to
vote, Mr. Dech would ave comexut of
th j crowd with a handsome majority,
and no one denies tli j fact that more
than three-fourths of the ladies present
were there in the interests of the re
Considering the fact that our county
had b3en billed for a grand rally on
Monday, October 10th,v to meet Mr.
Greono, bafore the joint debate was
arranged and alvertised, and our
farmers being too busy to attend both
meetings, they were advised that if
they could not attend both meetings to
turn out the 10th, by all means. Con

strained every norve to bring out an
audience that wculd. "paralyze Dech,"

The West and the South.
Bancroft, Neb., Oct. 4, '92,
To the Editor Alliance-Indepen
Certain persons are endeavoring to
win back weak-kneed members of the
peopVs party in this part of the state,
by telling them that the union of the
eouth with Via west, which was con
summated at the Omaha convention July
4th, was a fraud, and that the southern
delegates never intended to fulfill the
promise made, their object being to
encourage the people's party in the
northern states, so as to break down
republican majorities and let the
old bourbons of the south get cantrol
of the government. Having this in
mind, I wrote a rather caustic article
for the Southern Alliance Farmer,
published at Atlanta, Georgia. Among
other correspondence I received a
letter from some southerner, a total
stranger to me. I submit it to the
readers of The Alliance-Indepen
dent and ask if one of them can doubt
the honesty and sincerity of the writer:
Hickory Grove, Gi., Sept. 28, ; 9 3.
Dear Sir and Friend: I want to
thank you for your let-er in the South
ern Alliance Farmer of the 4th inst. I
wish I could grasp your hand in sup
port of the principles of the people's
par.y. They are grand, and noble in
I listened to that good man Loucks
of South Dakota yesterday, and it was
truly a masterly effort for reform.
We enlisted in. this movement to stay
t.o the finish, and we feel proud to have
such patriots from the great west with
us. We expect tj open the great bat
tle for freedom in every county in our
own state next week and we will do our
very best for the cause.
The freedom of speech was denied
our national leader, General Weaver,
in this stite last week by bourbon dem
ocrat3. But they have lost voters by
their acts. We feel very hopeful of
carrying the state ticket.
As cno who wore the gray, I bid you
godspeed in this reform.
Very Respectfully, .
II. E. White.
It is true that General Weaver was
rotten egged iu Georgia. So was one
of our candidates for state fena tor in
in this state the other, day, b'U that
do?a not prove that we, who pledged
our hands and hearts to tho men of the
south to fight this fight to a triumphant
close, were not honest in our declara
t'ons. I have full faith in our brethren
of the south, but I have just tho same
opinion of the hoodlums of tho southern
citie3 as i nave oi the railroad cappers
and mortgage hends or tho west. ,

An Open Letter to C. I). Shrader.
Brock, Neb., Oct. 4, 1893.
Hon. C. D. Shrader.
Dear Sir: Wo are aware that our
blue-shirted railroad pass agent has
grossly and unjustly insulted you
therefore we address this open letter
that you may know you have many
warm friends in Nemaha county. Those
who a few days ago through loca
pride would have supported tho rail
roaa aristocrat, aro now vour most
ardent supporters. Your honest, up
right course in the legislature attracts
the admiration of every true indepen
dent and our delegates to the Kearney
state convention supported you for the
nomination which you received: and to
class you as an anarchist is to class
those who nominated you as anarchists
ana certa'niy sucn a rignteous man as
the Nemaha statesman would not wan
the support of anarchists. Mr, Shrader
you are cordially invited to our county
and our homes are open for your enter

that little dried up Andrews yesterday

logical reasoning against Andrews

Arapahoe, Neb., Oct. 5, 1892.
Judgo Ballard of California who ad
dsessed the people at Arapaho3 last
evening was greeted with a good audi
ence considering the shortness of the
notice, and if the squirming of the

in any indication of the effectiveness
of his red hot shot thrown in their
midst, his aim surely was unerring.

the people should not fail to hear him
at Lincoln on the 14th.
As he returns on October the 17th. he
will again speak at Arapahoe, and it is
confidently expected that he will be
met by a much larger crowd than be

will make many votes for the indepen
