Alter the Battle.
During the late war our most success
ful generals were ' those who studied
closely the causes of defeat and success
in great battles already fought, and in
this respect the independent party
would I think do well to imitate their
blance of an organization in half tho
states, we have polled more than
a million votes and secured the elec
toral vote of live states for the nation
al ticket. We have increased our rep
resentation in congress, elected a ma
jority of the legislature in feverai
states and hold the balance of power in
others. It is indeed a remai kable show
ing and makes success seem much more
likely than ever before: Jet us gird on
the armor anew, profit by the mistakes
of the past, make us of every honorable
means within our reachj and victory
will ero long perch upon our banner.

' There is just one thing wo wish to
remark at this time for fear of forget
ting it. "The successor of Senator Pad
dock must not be a republican."
The Fielder would suggest that Tay
lor's old seat in the senate be occupied
by Jim North. Jim would certainly
look well in that scat and the seat
would feel well kind of old fashioned,
you know -in supporting Jim.
Some irreverent cuss said that just
after tbe result of the organization of
the house was announced, the expres
sion on Col. Holden's face resembled
that on the face of a cow just after the
birth of her first calf. Kind of a sur
prised look, you know.
Talking about the expression of that
particular face at that particular time,
W.L. Gxeen said it very much reminded
him ofthe expression ou Holden's face
when on the witness stand at Kearney.
He (Green) had asked Holden about
the times he had sold out to the U..P.
railroad. Tho Fielder remembers that
particular expression himself. It
would have stopped a freight train.
Editor llosewater was iu Lincoln last

Pahis, Jan. 11. The French ministry
has resigned, owing to differences in
the cabinet on the arrest of ex-Minister
of l'ublie Works liaihut and other
matters, M. Bourgeois, minister of
justice, opposing the arrest of M.
Wild excitement prevailed and the
people "thronged the streets, while the
police were out in force dispersing
crowds. It was openly charged that
the president itnd M. ltibot were not
in earnest in the Panama prosecution,
that they had no intention of bringing
the bribe takers to trial, and that the
prosecution of De Lesseps, Fontane,
Cottu and Eiffel would bo nothing
more than a farce. It was also cliarged
that efforts were being made to post
pone the exposure of certain guilty
parties until the law of prescription
should have taken effect.
It is understood that M. Ribot will
retain the office of premier, but will
exchange the ministry of foreign af
fairs for that of the interior. It is also
reported that M. Loubet, minister of
the interior, and M. de Freycinet, min
ister of war, will probably not be
found in the reconstructed cabinet.
The retiring ministry was as follows:
M. ltibot, priemer and minister for
foreign affairs; M. Loubet, minister of
the interior; M. ltousgeois, minister of
justice and public worship; M. Tirard,
minister of finance; M. de Freycinet,
minister for war; M. Uurdeau, minister
of marine and minister for the colo
nies; M. Dupuy, minister of public in
structions; M. de Velle, minister of
agriculture; M. Sarrien, minister ol
commerce; M. Viette, minister of pub
The ministry was the same as that
of M. Loubet. with the relative situation-
of its members changed and
without M. Ricard and M. Roche.
They were recently described as f ol
fows: M. Bourgeois is a man of firm
character and, being a Parisian, has
not his head turned by the dissipations
of Paris, as is the earn of provincial
deputies when they succeed in climb
ing to high positions. He belongs to
an Intelligent, old fashioned family
and is ' an active man. Energy in

The great battle of the peopl agahist the plutocrats, of the masses

During the year 1893, Tim Allunck-Indepkndent will stand in
the fore-front of the battle. In arousing and educating the people, in
advocating th- principles of the reform movement, in exposing fraud
and coiruption, Ton Au.i akce-Ixrefen d ekt Wall be vigorous, fearless
, and uncompromising.
The principal features of the paper for the coming year may be out
lined as follows:
Especial attention will be devoted to political news. All iaiportaat
events in the progrew ofthe people's party In the United States will tm
chronicled. Especial care will be taken to keep the readers of Tint
Alliance-Independent fully informed on political events that tran
spire la our own state. A valuable and interesting feature in the way
of news will be a column of brief field notes. ;
Discussions of the Issues.
MoBey, transportation, taxation, land and other important live
issues will be dlsscussed both editorially and by contributor. The
paper will be made a forum for the advocacy of refoim Ideas, and the
demands of the people's party. .

As soon as the Farmers' Alliance
made itself a power in the land mys
terious whispers and charges concern
ing iti leaders and prominent members
began to be heard.
Generally, these charges took tho
shape of vagvio heresay testimony,
coming from no responsible source,
and too thin and indcGnitu to bo run
down and promptly squelched.
All great reform raovemonts have
been attack od in tho same way, says
an exchange. Their opponents have
always attempted to weaken tho in
fluence of the leaders by making all
sorts -of charges against them. The
surest way to dofeat a reform is to
make its friends distrust each other.
It is an old k-iuk, and an easy one
to work moro or less frequently. A
wink or a shake of the head when a
man's name is mentioned, an inquiry
about his financial condition, a ques
tion about an alleged rumor, an inti
mation that much might be revealed
if certain persons were willing to
speak all theso are familiar dodges,
and sometimes they accomplish their
object. And yet it requires very lit
tle ability, and simply a lack of scruple
to work them. When everything else
fails, a pretonso is made of sympathiz
ing with the objocts of tho reformers,
and surprise is expressed that the
merits of soir.o of thom have not boon
recognized, and tho question is asked

Tho Alliance is going through -all
of these direct and indirect attacks,
and its members seem to thoroughly
understand the tactics employed against
them. The enimies of this great re
form organization will hava to revise
their plan of campaign. It is usoless
for them, to continue making charges I
if they are not going to provo some
thing. Tho old common law maxim
that a man is presumed to bo innocent
until his guilt is provod holds good in
theso matters, and tho Alliancemon

of idle gossips begin to wag against
