-The National Alliance Aid"
As adopted by resolution at the last
meeting of the State Alliance is bring
rapidly pushed into all the counties of
the state. What life insurance is to
the Workmen, Woodman, and other
fraternal orders, this is and will be to
the alliance. It is one of the best
methods to reorganize and will do as
much ti hold the alliances together.
An aid degree Is formed in the "alli
ance," and m one except alliance mem
bers can become members. Aid in the
form of life insurance is given to all
members over 18 and under 55 years.
Any man r woman over 55 years can
become an honorary member of thejde
free. A brother can carry a benefit
certificate made payable to his wife or
another. Or he and his wife can make
a joint, cert.flcate payable to t ither at
death, This is a new feattre.DOt com
mona to other fraternal orders. The
cost to carry a benefit with "the Alii
ance Aid" in the average of age, will
probably amount to from (even to nine
dollars per year.
The "Alliance Aid" has in addition
to the death benefit an accident feature.
If a member loses one limb one fourth
of the "benefit is paid;" if he loses two
limbs, either hands or legs, one-half is
paid. For lods of one eye one-fourth is
paia. r or loss of bom tyet one-naif i paid.
The remainder at death.
The "Ailiauce Aid" is now working
in all parts of the nation, and the mem
bers are learning fast the benefits to
themselves, ine order, and its princi
pals are those which all are so deeply

The lefson of the French revolution
ought not to have been in vain. The
oppressors of labor ought to take warn

day of reckoning.
The next revolution in the way ot
progress will be industrial revolution .
It will be the consummation of all
the struggles of the past, the acme of
the efforts toward human liberty.
Mossbacke, old fogies and hypocrites
have always tried to bleck the advance
of reform. They have always stood in
the way of the car of progress. And
they always finally got run over too.
The love of human liberty if left to
take its own course Is harmless. But if
tampered with it ia dangerous. If con
fined it becomes an explosive that will
"raise Cain" when the pressure grows
too strong. Plutocracy should get off
the safety valve.
The Almighty endowed every man
with reason. A great many men don't
show any very alarming symptoms of
it, but he did just the same. He in
tended every man to use that reason,
to think for himself. Think,. act, vote
as you please. Do not let anyone else
dictate to you.
The minds of the great plain people
keep pretty close to the primary stand

leaders, through lust ot power or of
gold, get too far away from that pri

masses assert themselves and place new
men at the front.
Labor has beautified this planet.
Labor has covered the earth with tem

progress. Labor has been the great
lever for the advancement of mankind
And yet labor is clothed in homespun
and rags, w&ue idler dress in oroaa

There are mutterings of discontent

Men, who have brains to think for
themselves and eyes to see into the

One of the rulers of ancient Greece
was confronted by exactly such a situa

was unbounded prosperity and happi

In the old days the thief did not show
his face openly. He haunted the high
ways and byways on the borders of
civilization or prowled in unfrequented
parts of the seat He fellon his victims

with brown stone fronts. He is at the
"top of the heap" in society. He haunts
the stock exchange, and the halls of
congress. He is even elected by the
people to hold office. Times have

All the evidence is now in the im

judge of the guilt or innocence of the
impeached officers by the tone of the
press, irrespective of party, they are a
most corrupt set of officials, and are
guilty as charged. Alliance-Herald,

The impeachment trial of the state
officials is drawing to a close. It will
not be many days before the court will
decide how the impeached officers stand
before the Nebraska courts. The evi
dence has shown incompetency, care
lessness and dishonesty on the part of
these men. They should not escape a
just punishment for their shortcomings,
Nebraska's boodlers are to escape
with a reprimand from the supreme
court instead of impeachment and
punishment- This will not satisfy the
people, who have been robbed of vast
sums of money by the republican ring
of that state. If the indicted officials
are guilty let them be properly punish
ed and not whitewashed by a reprimand.
The independents of Nebraska must
prepare for another sweeping campaign
