And co all that remains for vry
populist ia Nebraska, is to his
shoulder to the wheel and make ( the
ALUAJfCE-IXDtPEfDEfT one of thu
greatest populist organs ia tho land.
It caa be done; and, I believe, will, be
done. The canse of the people is com
log uppermost; the future grows
brighter. Victor is insight. The re
form press will be the sentinel to herald
the dawa of the new da.
As for Bjrsslf, I have had but a spas
modic aad Intermittent connection with
the paper since first of last January. So
I do not have to bid anjboJy gooi-bye
and wouldn't If I ceuld. My work lo the
campaign will preclude my wring for
the paper ether than the state central
committee column. But my every effort
will be to build up" The Alliance-Ik
dependent, as it will be to build up the
entire reform press; s it will be to
build up the new movement. .
Then let us all bid tho new manage
ment God speed in its work; and labor
together that under Its control the pa
per may go onward to success.

. .onie expression of the views and pur
poses of the new edjitor will be looked
for in this first-issue 'of your paper
under hii, itud, dear jfuVraaVa people,
and I shall gladly open my heart to you.
spfwering all, Questions I . fancy you
would like to ask. .
I believe, religiously, morally and
very definitsly, In the fatherhood of God
and the brotherhood of man. I believe
the interest of each is the interest of all,
and that "An injury to ono is the con
cern of all." The rights of the wcakoit
and humblest are our rights, and they
must be searched out and defended by
tx, or all liberty is lost. Each man and
woman has an equal natural inheritance
i n and just claim to so much of the land,
sunshine, air, water, mineral stores anil
infinite working energies (chemical and
electric) as he needs for the develop
ment and use of all his powers, and the
most ample satisfaction of all his wants.
God's priceless, abundant gilts must not
be cornered, for purposes of oppression
and robbery. Society owes as mush
help to one individual as to another,
Monopolists are in a word all these,
king, despots','' robbers,, slaveowners,
and they must with such be classed . In
the degree that I love liberty I hate
monopoly. I hate it as the parent evil,
to which we have traced every sort of
temptation and, world-wide needs and
miseries indescribable. :., , , ; v'
To spread ths truth, moral, economic
aud political, the truth which shall make
men free, is tho great pressing need,
ajod Ms one thing I would do. ' I believe
t jim by nature and education fitted for
It; ; The editorial offloe is the only office
that attracts me. I have no political
ambitions for mjsclf, no desire to place
personal friends In office, no enemies In
the Independent ranks to fight. There
are enemies enough Outeldo to absorb
our whole attention. Lot ut all fight
them henceforth unitedly, the only wsy
In 'which we caa be. completely and
grandly victorious. We are not "of Paul,
or Apollo",; but disciples of Justice,
men who follow principles rather than
We all recognize, do we not? that all
men have more wisdom than any one
man, and after . free discussion every
good independent will cheerfully sub
mit to the will and wisdom of the ma
jority.' One word more to each nni ovcry
friend of tho paper and our common
cause. The editor, business manager
and their assistants are faithfully yours,
and they start lo determined, as swiftly
at means will permit, to develop the
state organ into one of the best and
brightest papers ever printed. It will
cheer the hearts and strengthen the
hands of the new management greatly
It you will each send ia word that you
are with them, and at the same time
send tokens of earnest comradeship in
the fiM-m of one or more personally
secured annual subscript loos when it 1
posalbl to do It. Double our subscrip

llOiEWATER'S WOEDS OF WAE5ING.
We reprint below aa Interesting ex
tract from Mr.-!.' Rose water's speech be
fore the Douglas county convention last
Saturday. A majority la the conven
tion, notwithstanding Uosewater'a fear
ful prophecy, favored Powell for judge.
The proceedings ioJav are a d U
grace," exolaimed Mr.. Rose water. 'I
know how much corporation agents
have been working. Dsfleyates bave

The bond between the western and
southern democra's and the gold bug,
Wall sireetowned, administration head
and ruling power of the party, is
strained to the point of violent dls
membership. A- perfect land silde to
the populist parry in the very near
future, h indicated. Tho following, in
tha last issue of tbe Crete Democrat, is
bul ono of many declarations of repre
sentative dcuocrats leading to the cer
tain separation cf the old party Into Its
hmess and dishonest parts:
The trouble In th democratic camp
is caused by a lot of biind worshiptrs of
an ind.vldual backed by a fw greedy
gold bugs who to promote what they
think will bring them more profit In
their busloers, are urging the adminis
tration democrats to pursuo a course
that will destroy the party. Its fate
will be known iuslde of a month. No
party can live or ocht to live that will
go back on its promises to the people.
The live democrats of the west and
south cannot longer be deluded, and
the eastern head of gold will never re
pent and let go its grip. It Is a fight

control the market aod increase profits.'

We dropped into Havens' yesterday
to see what coal would cost us this win
ter. Did we find the coal price weak
aad depressed, becauso of the panic?
Not much. . It was fly in j as high as
ever 110.40 a ton. Aud wo couldn't
bring it down by refusing to buy at that
figure. When we . informed the dealer
that the miners hsd just been beaten in
their strike and forced' to go back to
work at lower wages, and that what
ever cheapened wages should cheapen
coal, it made no difference.
Abolish usury and you will stop the
voluntary idleness of the rich, and the
involuntary Idleness and consequent
suffering of the poor. Furnish capital
or credit at cost, and dividends will no
longer be divided among the'non-pro-duccrs;
the producers will have all they
produce. Prohibit the holding of land
for speculative or uuury profits, and"
every family will ba free. These three
thincs, net profits monopoly prices and
rents in excess of usttfruct, when analy
zed are found to be, in principle, one
and the same. -' ' -
