Judge Cbipman, of Indiana, a life Ions republican, has this fall come out 1b fever of the people's party. Harper B Wmkly, which la per haps the most rabid Cleveland organ In tbe country, says there is no longer any dobut about the repeal bill passing the aenate. JUDOi FoT has again descended from the supreme court bench to meddle with ward politics. He waa in Fremont the day of the republican primaries, eleo tloneerlog against Judge Maxwell. Tub way in which leading old party men are flocking to the standard of the populist Is almost a repetition of tbe landslide of W. All our people need to do It to take heart, for victory ia in eight The nation la awakening. The Alliance-Independent ia now upon a stable financial footing, Tbe future of the paper Is assured. It will he constantly Improved. There la no reason why every populist voter in Nebraska should not have It in his house. With such a circulation, the paper can be made superior to any weekly in tho west. The paper is owned by the farmra of Nebraska. It la their paper and will be run In their interests. It should receive their entire support. Tom Patterson's lotter to the Rocky Mouutain News, la which he comes out squarely in favor of tho Peo ple's party, is attracting attention all over the United States. Henry fC Legate in the Boston Traveler says of it: "It la the most Important paper in the west, and it will be a valuable ally tn the political contests or tne luture At a tout th same time the News e roused the populist raune, the Denver rosL the democratic administration organ, was obi i trod to suspend publlca flnn It will arum tut IVia lt it ' When the Nebraska railroads let out a great many of tbelr employes a month or more ago, they gave as their reason for so doing, the maximum rate bill jsow, wben tbe Dill ns been bung up Indefinitely In the United Statea court and the men have not returned to their places, the latter have begun to wonder If some one has not been lying to them Never snlnd. bys, the railroad com panles do not think any more of you, their employes, than they do of the farmer, and when the time comes they will pinch yo'i jtut as htrd.

The people will bear in mind, however, that nia u.uta states JudEe, whose name ia Dundy, is a republican and a member of the republican railroad ring; and that he simply acted as a tool in the conspiracy to defeat the will of the peo- pfli Vow. of Nebraska, the aame power that has over-ridden tbe freight rate law. ia oranld to dfeat rou at the polls this fall. That power dominate reoubllran aonv.nti. That nower. with n.h.w n -Tnt.inn- controls the republican officials of this i - - w 1 - state. One of the exceptions is Chief Justice Msx well and him it will turn down. You must this fall by your vote give that power to understand that it can ao longer trample under foot the laws of tbe great state of Nebraska and that It cannot longer sustain lu dis reputable gang of boodlers at the state capital. This you must do at the next election. You cannot put it off lonrer. OOME OUT SOW. It is enough to break one's heart to see such men as W. J. Bryan. J. D. Calhoun, CD. Casper and Judge Broady following la . the lead of the gold-bug demo-republican combine at Wasfaltgton; tailing up tbe democratic column while It marches away from every principle dear to their hearts. How can you doit, boys? The adminis tration has no use for such men as you. It has no une for any man who has the bravery to differ from the gold-bug crowd. Why are you longer bound by a uamer way aou'i you Stand tv tbe democracy of Jefferson and Jackson? Why don't you have the back bone and courage to come out for your own idea? An honest id, that is your own, is a better thing to tie to than any party name that was ever coined. r- a a . a . . 'jut nere comes tbe plea: "We can do more good where we are." How can you do more good when the party machinery and the majority of the party itaeu ia ail against your Your own state convention will repudiate yeur Ideas, though at heart they may believe in them; and will repudiate you in sol doing, though at heart they may be- lieve Jrou to be the brains of tbelr party n this state. Why? Because you have bo miserable crumbs of public patron- age at your disposal. The leaders of your party are In league with plutocracy. The majority of the rank aad file of your party are cowards. They have proven them selves so in the late congress. Do you want to train longer with a crowd like tkat? the party has deserted Its old-time stand on the money question. It is deserting its old-time stand on the tariff question. It Is doomed. Now is not a time for weak pandering. It Is a time for every man to array himself on one side or the other. Come out on the side In which you believe and help us fight tbe common battle of humanity. ONE MORE QUESTION. Why does not the attorney general prosecute the railroads of this state for violating the raaxlmun rate law? There is a provision in tbat law which says that any railroad guilty of violat ing It shall be fined In the sum of five thousand dollars for the first offence, Why does he not prosecute them under this provision? Does he make the plea that tbe United States district judge has Issued aa injunction restraining the state board from enforcing the law? That cuie no ngure with the criminal proxe- cution. The United States district court has no Jurisdiction over the criminal statutes of this auto. Tbe object of the railroads la to have the maxlmun rate bill buna- un la th courts for two years, when they hope to buy a legislature to repeal It. It means three million dollars a year In their pockets if tuey succeed. It means three million dollars a year filched from the people. l be question la, win the attorney general aid and abet them la this cbtiiK? Will be attempt to bide buhind an arbitrary decision ef a tool e( the railroad, la the shapo of a t'nlt-ni Statea judge, ho has no Jurl-dlc'lon whatever In the matter, while tbe pro ! he I supposed til rrproiwout are K ng riihix-d of mlllione?

With this endorsement behind them, tbe bw4 era would be en couraged la their public robbery and Nebraska wou'd bid a final farewell to all lopes of honesty among her officials. There is no middle ground. The peo pie must either repudiate or amotion tbe action of tbe state bouse gaog. Thla fall brings the crucial teat. Honest or dishonest government which?

Legate now edits a people's party department in the Boston Trave ler, one of the leading dailies of the eHt. He had four solid columns of news and opinions last week and among the various items were several real gems. His news from over the south and west is most encouraging. Even the ast 1 awakening Mr. Legate comments on the Nebraska populist convention, and gives etpeci ally favorablo mention of Judge Hol- cemb and the platform. Among other things be has the following concerning the Omana Bee and Its stand in regard to the corruption at the state hoase. Tbe article is entitled: A DELAYED PROTEST. The Omaha Bee Is finding out that there is political corruption exis4ng in Nebraska. It says that the cornice judicial convention in tbat btate will be controlled by the agents and tools of the corporations acting as proxies, and characterizes the whole business as "a game with loaded dice, played by cor poration gammers wno are to be whip ped into line or bought into support the man who who will do the bidding of the railway managers on the Supre ue bench and make a mockerv of iustloe." The Springfield Republican says: ' If what the llee says is true, it will be some time before the populist Drty In Nebraska will die for the lack of am munition." Th people's partv papers in that, state have been making charges of this na ture for two years past. It is no new thing the Bee has discovered, but it has become so glaring an evil that it can no longer ignore the matter. It should be the province of a ereat paper to lead in reforming an evil, and not wait until the majority of the people are familiar with It, Perhaps the Bee thinks it is better late than never.

The tutwt encouraging report are now coming in daily from all tarU of tbe state. The people are awake and moving. In lkx liutte couatf they havejunt held thilr populist convea tU n, nomlaaud a strong ticket, aad have gone in to win V. 8. Abraham, o' Keith County, writes: "I fe- ctfi ttot la rromtlr-i? you a msi uitv for the stte tUkei We re too fir ImiB liniitln n.t I -it, l.i t.. kI..u Biw! too murh iane the hard time to alWad the voaven'-loa. hut we are working ju.t the same atd gain- la irouad aver dav" the EorTTir minus. i The btlk-f of pnpulisW that tbe South wi:l wheel Into line at the next election Is bt no mtaas a figment of tbe imagina tion. Tbe action of Cleveland and the gold standard detmxra a have stttlfd the question dero there. The South baa broken from its moorings and is drift lag with irresistable force into tbe populist tide In Georgia Tom Watson is drawing crowds of from two to five thousand dally. In Virginia tbe whole state is break ing awa.t from the gold bugs and going into the new movement. The Boston Traveler says of that state: The democrats are surpr'sed at the strength being developed by the popu- iiatf, unc are learrm tbat witb the aid tne republicans are disposed to give them, tbe result may be disastrous to the party that oas so long held sway In the Old Domlnicm." And still there's more to follow. SjuHi Carolina Is following the lead r f her larger tlsteis The New Nation publishes the following of the demo cratic governor of that state: The number of governors who are revolutionary in the eyes of tbe eaeu-m editors is on tbe increase. Guv. Till man of South Carolina has join-d the ranks of tbe new movement. The as sage of the repeal bill settled tbe mat ter with the governor, wto now pro claims himself In favor of an issue of United States treasury nofs bsed upon the credit of the country. He said to an interviewer last Saturday that the gold mn " hject to greenbacks m fiat money; they object to silver as a di2 honest dollar; they demand gold to be come the standard of the country, although it means 50 cent wheat and rx cent cotton, and the lost of the titles of their homes by millions tf American tanners. I told the 'ring In this state in 1888 It wt.s damming up the water when the demand for reform was refused ia the state convention, I now make the prediction that a similar crisis is approaching in national affair, and the flood-gates of tbe people's wrath will be raised and tbe present conspirators against the people's liberty will be swept from the face of the earth in the next presidential elec tion." POPULISTS WILLOAREY THE SOUTH Now and then amidst a large amount of rot, slush and misrepresentation con cerning populists in the leading eastern dailies, a hunk of truth will slip ir. This probably haopens by accident, as su.'li occurrences are rather rare, but at any rate It does happen Tbe following is clipped from tbe special Washington i rrespoi dence of a leading eastern daily: Washington, Sept. 16. At least one set of southern men in the House have steadily voted with the republicans against receiving the bill abolishing the Federal Election las As one man the bakers' dozen of populist members have voted with the republicans. Their vote bss been somewhat more in both spirit and meaning than that given either by the republicans or the admin titration democrats. The populists are -aeau against" tne repeal or tbe iede ral Election laws. The hope of the populist party now nee more in ine soutn. wnere tbe prin cipal Industry is the farm and planta tion, than elsewhere In Alabama and Georgia, the Carolinas and a number of other Southern states. Tbe poullsts believe they will elect a majority of the congressmen next year, and it may be added tbat this feeling has the proportions, of a premonition with the democrats of the South, and this is the secret of their present de termination to take out of the hands of the people of the country and tbe fede ral government all control or influence over the election of congressmen. THE BAT PAPER. People of this state, who believe in the cause of labor, should keep it con stantly in mind that tht recognized re publican organ of the state, the Ne braska State Journal, is a rat paper. The organized printers left the paper last winter for good .cause, and today there is not a man employed upon tbat sheet who is a recognized member of a labor organi zation. Moreover, the republican machine- politicians of Nebraska uphold the Journal In Its course. When a resolu tion was introduced in the last legisla ture expressing sympathy with the striking printers, the republicans of that body killed it. When a resolution frera the typ graphical union was laid before a recent meeting of the republican state central committee, it was promptly pigeon holed. Tbe republican party by these actions has placed Itself in direct antagonism to the Interests of organised labor.

It Is said tbat Willis Hudspeth, one of tbe editors of the defunct Omiha Toscin, will be made editor of tbe West ern Laborer. Hudspeth is perhaps the best labor writer o? tbe west. Miss Ada Coleman, tbe successor of I. D. Cbamborlain, still keeps the Stromsbury Headlight shining as brightly as of yore. It takes a pretty good man to nil Ubamberialn's snoes but Miss Coleman seem to be that man. Mrs. Jennie D. Sheldon, assistant editor of theCbadron Sgnal, and one oi tne brlgntest writers in tbe state has been nominated for county superin tendentby (be populist of Dawes county. Aa. a matter of course she will be elected. Tbe state central committee of tb people's party asks every Independent papr in MetrasEa to seol a copy to headquarters at tbe Liniell hotel, Lin noin, during tbe camp ilgn. This is mat er of importance and should not be neglected. There is going to be a couple of tbe most beautiful ngbts ever witnessed In tbe coming democratic and republican state conventions. In both cases it will oe between tbe monopoly and the anti monopoly wing; and in both cases the monopoly wing will wis. Ed Richmond, of Minden, since he ei larged his paper and swallowed up his democratic contemporary, is writing some editorials of just at'out the right ring Ed has got the republican paper of tbat town so completely cowed that its editor hardly dares cheep above whisper any more. H. J Bedford has became editor of the Kearney Standard. The ink-sllngrr oi ibis department bas a sort of a warm place in bis beart for the Standard, having been In a manner, tbe god father of the paper. He is therefore glad to see it fall Into such good hands as those of Mr. Bedford. Tho Independent Press, of Franklia and its twin, the Nation at Red Cloud, i i ...

It Is chronicled that G rover Cleve land, whose residence Is at Buzzard's Bay, makes a flying visit to Washing ton occasionally. It is also said that he quits fishing now and then to look after the duties of his office. These occa sions, however, are so rare that they scarcely aeserve mention. It should be kept in mind that there is an independent press association in this state. Tbe president has not call ed it together during --these bard times. because he felt that the members could 111 afford to spend the money to attend. ne is reaay to ma ice tne call at any rime mat mere is any considerable de mand lor a meeting. There are six out of ten members re tot the people's party state executive com mittee, who are or have been connected with the independent press: J. H. Dundas, of the Auburn Granger; C. W. Beal, of the Custer County Beacon; C. S. Fowler, of the North B.nd Argus: J. V Wolfe, president ef the Alliance fuonsbing Uo., D.

The very fact that be Is next door neighbor of Judge Maxwell may show something of his source of information.

And h?y are ail first class papers. This department for this week is largely devoted to the populist papers of the state; and they deserve it. Any man who will stand right to his guns and run a populist country paper In these bard times bas some little of the hero in his make-up; and deserves many good words for he gets very little of & more substantial nature. We have a press in this state to be proud of, ia spite of all the boys have to contend with; and behind every paper stands a. man of nerve and back bone, else he would not have carried the fight for ward so long as he bas. Whenever L pick up a populist paper I cannot help but tbinkjof the bard work, tbe scrap ing, and the struggle to make both ends meet, that it represents, and though it is covered all over with typographical errors and bad prints, I can not help honoring the man who Is. behind it; who goes on bearing all these hardshlps for a prlnclpie. All hail to the reform press! And when the new day finally dawns, boys, each one of you. may feel that you have done your part toward bringing it Carry on the good work. There is nothing that lives bo long as truth; and the men who battle, and struggle to uphold it will be re warded somewhere; if nowhere else, in. their own hearts in the consciousness that they have done the best they could.
