Good Words From California
Dospalos, Cal., Feb. 22, 1893.
Sirs: I cannot help but send a word
of cheer to the grand Populist host
with the sixteen honest democrats that
cast their votes for W. V. Allen for
United States senator, one of the
grandest and truest men the people
have left in America. May God bless
him in his labors for the down-trodden
Cheer up, my brothers, the conflict
is raging. I hope we will be able by
the ballot to settle this great question:
"Shall the $ or the People Rule?"
If the people could just get to see that
it is English money and English laws
that are being forced upon the Ameri
can people, by such traitors as John
Sherman, Bill Allison and others of
their stripe, what a blessing it would
bel They are awakening as never be
fore all along this coast. We organ
ized an allionce with 11 members four
weeks ago last night and now have 34
and still they come.
Youra for right and liberty,

I Better Roads but no Bonds.
Litchfield, Neb., Feb. 20, 1893.
Daer Sir: At a regular meeting of
Gracchus Alliance No. 569, held Feby,
18, 1893. The following resolutions
Whereas, A widely extended inter
est is being manifested by National
banks and capitalists in favor of improv
ing our roads throughout the country
and In urging congress to legislate in
favor of, this, their scheme. And where
as it appears possible that hasty legis-
f latlon will be brought about by these
enthusiastic agitators, who know and
care no more about the needs of the
farmers in this respect than the man in
the moon. And whereas we believe
that we ought to have and can have
better roias without any increase of
cost by bonds issued for that purpose.
Therefore be it, Resolved by this
alliance that we hereby place our em
phatic protest egainst every project
that may come up for the eo-callcd im
provement of our country roads that
shall add one dollar to the road taxes
in shape of bonds either national, state,
j And be it further, resolved that we
I urge our state legislature to abandon
H the present system of road iraking and
adopt the system now in use in most of
the eastern states, or at least some
oeiier nmnod than the one now in use.

wing Machines Given Away
Although the bounty boom seems to
be pretty effectually crushed, we feel
like giving it a few finishing touches
by exposing two of the impostors who
are going about seeking whom they
may gull. The first of theae is one
. Steele, a dapper little gentleman who
I puts up at the Lindell hotel, and makes
it his business to instruct the dear hay
seed legislators la the wonders of the
beet business. Nat long sinee, Mr.
Steele requested an in traduction to this
crank quill-driver. Ha got it. Then
he waattd an opportunity to show us
the error of ear way, he baring notioei
said error in the columns of Thb Alli
ance Indepwdbnt. We informed
him that we were always glad , to hays
our errors pointed out. Mr. 8teele then
proceeded to unfold his tale. He was
here merely to '.'Instruct" the- peeple.
There was so much ignoraaoe and prej
udice in connection with this beet
bounty business. He was here as a
sort of missionary to let his light shin
into darkenrd minds, and show them
the road to prosperity, and a great deal
more te the same effect. Then he pro
ceeded with the "instructions." We
can't undertake to tell all he said. It
would fill several columns. It was a
rich intellectual treat te listen to him.
There is nothing we enjoy better than
to hear a man lay down one proposition
after another and then centradict every
one of them within half an hour. But
we looked docile, and listened. En
couraged by thi, Mr. Steele become
confidential. He said he would let us
into a secret. He had been working
for Oxnard up at Norfolk, but he was
going to quit. In fact he had offered
his resignation. He was going into the
sugar business on his own hook inoppo
sition to Mr. Oxnard. He didn't know
what Oxnard would think if he found
it out. He was going to start a factory
just over the line in Kansas, anl he
wanted the bounty bill amended so that
farmers in eastern Nebraska could ship
beets down to him in fiat boats. He
drew such a glowing picture that in im
agination we could see great fleets of
flat-boats loaded with beets sailing
down the "Big Muddy." Then Mr.
Steele become m ire confidential. He
went to his valise and got out a picture
of his factory located at Leavenworth,
an old glucose factory he had purchas
ed. He was going to transform it into
a sugar factory, etc. He was going to
compete with Oxnard. He would start
other factories in Nebraska soon. After j
grivlngus ' instructions" of this kind
for about an hour, he asked in his most
persuasive tones if we didn't think a
bounty law should be passed. We poli
tely but very positively informed him
that we could't see it in that light, and
the interview soon ended.
flow during this Interview we har
bored a growing suspicion that Mr,
bteele was an imposter of the first
water. To satisfy our mind as to the
correctness of this view, we wrote to
the mayor of Leavenworth to find out
if Steele had purchased the glucose
factory. "His honor," turned the let
ter over to a Mr. Earl who is financially
interested in the Glucose factory. Mr.
Earl kindly wrote that the glucose fac
tory had not been sold for a sugar factor,
but was likely to be sold in the near
future for another purpose.
This Mr. Steele is simply an impos
tor, and a falsifier. He is here in Lin
coln to delude, and gull members of the
legislature. His argument is a tissue
of falsehoods, and sophistry. He is
here in the employ of Oxnard whom he
is pretending to fight.
We are informed that Mr. Steele has
a different story for the different peo
ple he lobbies. He has told some mem
bers that he has discovered a new pro
cess by which he can get a great deal
more sugar out of beets than other
manufacturers can. If all his stories
were collected and published In a book,
li wouia aountless be a formidable ri
val of "Gulliver's travels,' or "Wonder
ful adventures of Baron Munchausen."
If Mr. Steele feels aggrieved because
we have given away his secret, we will
agree to Intercede with Mr. Oxnard
not to "fire" him.
There is another man "going up and
down in the land" whom we believe to
be as big an impostor as Steele, though
good deal shrewder, and brainier.
His name is Felton. He goes from
plaoe to place (seeming to have a decld
ed preference for the places where in
dependent representatives live) work
ing up local booms for sugar factories.
Two week's ago we exposed his work
atOrd. Siaoe then we have learned
that ha worked the same scheme oa the
people at CI arks, representative Por
ter's home. He had all the people ex
cited over the prospect ef a factory,
and all they had to do was to circulate
petitions fer the bounty. Mr. Porter
went home just when the excitement
was at its highest.' They had a meet
ing, and he made a speech. He pre
sented a common-sense view of the
situation, and told them not to waste
any time sending petitions of that kind
to him. He had pledged himself to
vote against the bounty and he was
going to keep that pledge. When his
county alliance met, hie position was
The people of Nebraska are too in
telligent to be gulled by such impos
tors. They are not only wasting their
time, but they are really strengthening
the opposition to class legislation. We
advise them to emigrate to some other
state where the people haven't recover
ed from the "tariff" disease.
