' Editor Aixiance-Independdnt:
Saurday (Jet. 21 wos Independent day
at Wahoo. the "corn huskers ard bay
seeds" turned out en masse. The scions
of tho Demosrat Republican combine
had predicteo that the farmers would
remain in their cornfields ana the meet

The Mead brass band furnlstaen excell

Sornborger introduded the Hon. E. C,
Bewick of Lincoln in a neat spoech.
Mr. Rewick announced that he would
confine his talk to state Isbuos, leaving
Mr. Edgertoa to discuss national ques
tions. For about two hours be neia ms
vast audlenoo spellbound with the story
of Republican thievery and rascality at
the stata capital. Mr. Re1ck Is a com
master of his subject and those that had
not before heard htm were surprised
that such a state of facts, were allowed
tneitst in anv state. He told about
the meetlnz which he addressed at Lin'
ooln last year In welch he first made
public the startling disclosure of a half
a million of money stolen, by Republi
can officials. He told them that be
would mention no fraud that did not
amount to more than $5,000 00.
He then prooeeped to show how, so
far, bat one ot the Infamous gang,
young Butts, who happened to be with-
ont money tt friend bad been con victee;
Uld how bills were audited and allowed,
showing that it was impossible that any
stealing should be carried on without
the kaowl. dgs of the majority of the
state officers being acquainted and be
ing made a party to the plunder. -
He showed how a sjitematio plunder
had been kept up and how during the
months of June, Jnly and August, an
average of 17 tons of coal per day was
charged up to the Insane asylum, and
that it would require a railroad taaln
2i miles long to contain tho ooal sup
.posed to have been consumed at that
' Institution in one year.
The cell-house and school land steals
next received his attention and the
manner In which the state was robbed
of the 1230,000.00 in the Capital Nation
al Bank, followed by showing how the
asylum officials obtained their whiskey
at the expense of the state.
He next took up the attempted steal
ot the State Journal Co. hearing that
he gave a vivid picture of the late Re.
publican convention and the infamous
measure taken to defeat Maxwell for
renomination because he could not be
used as a railroad tool; but the climax
was reached then he repeated the state
ment of J. L. Webster when he declared
that they owned two members of the
Supreme Bench of the state and wanted
Mr. Rewick surely displayed nerve in
exposing such rottenness and his labors
are appreciated, as the attention which
ho commanded and the applause with
which his remarks were quoted shows.
He was followed by Judge Edgerton
who made a strong convincing speech
n national issues.
Both speakers spoke to a very large
audience at Mead in the evening.
Saunders county will elect her ticket
straight this year, with handsome ma
jorities. She has the cleanest set of men that
has ever been placed in nomination in
MEETING AT ALLIANCE, NEB.
Leading Men of the Old Parties
Publicly Joining us.
On last Wednesday Oct 18th, Hon.
Ceo A. Abbott, of Richardson county,
spoke at the opera houo to a fair sized
audience, 'thovgh the meeting had
but a day's announcement hen. He
ably demonstrated his ability as a
thoroughly posted student of political
eoonomy and problems, and is aa able
Instructor in the principles of the Peo
ple's party. Many of his hearers were
loading mea from the three parties,
and the writer feels sure that the
masterly way la which Mr. Abbott
handled the money question and told of
the doings of corporations everywhere
ver the country, will prove Msed sown
on good ground," and that It will bring
forth fruit at the coming election.
To the surprise of everybody and
chagrin of tho monopolist Mr. Ueorga
W. WaLner, chairman of the meitog

MIfc. ABBOTT AT THEDFOBU.
Andirnce of Old Party
Thkdford, Neb., Oct. 15, 1803.
According to previous announcement
Hon. Coo. A. Abbott preacht d the poll
tlcal gospel truth, to the largest crowd
that ever assembled to bear a political
speech in this county, on last Saturday
afternoon. Although there are not
more than a half dozen trne blue inde
pendents in this locality, by making an
extra effort we succeeded in getting out
a crowd that completely filled our capa
cious court room. Mr. Abbott treated
all parties fairly, abused no one, and
handled his subject in a masterly man
ner. His speech was well received and
by request of the audience he spoke
again at night.
It Is plainly evidont that if the voters
would vote their honest convictions,
three-fourths of all the votes cast at
the coming election would be in favor
of the principles of the People's Inde
Mr. Abbott's speeches w ore both well
received and will bear good fruit, as
they have set our people to thinking,
lours for equality before the law.
THINGS HUMMING IN DAWES.
Most Interesting News of the Connty
Chadrom, Neb., Oct. 23, 1893.
The campaign in Dawes county this
year Is the most vigorous and hopeful
ever carried on. Every precinct in the
county is being thoroughly roused by
ndependent school house meetings.
Senator H. O. Stewart of this district,
has, held a series of meetings which for
merest and enthusiasm out rank any
thing ever held in this portion of the
state. Judge E S. Rlcker. a Brvan
Democrat, accompanies the Indepen
dent speakers and scalps the "doughnut
Democrats" as he styles the fellows
who turned Bryan down I. N. Har
baugb, another Independent wheel
horse, is speaking to crowded school
houses. The whole Independent county
ticket accompanies these meetings and
make five-minute talks. The defeat of
Maxwell has driven many republicans
out of the party and the outlook Is that
Holoomb wi'l carry the county.
O. A Abbott held rousing meetings.
at Crawford and Chadron the oast
week. Abbott makes the best impres
sion and leaves the best feeling behind
blm of any of the speakers so far sent
out here by the state committee. He
makes friends for the Independent
cause and drives no one away. Look
out for good news from Dawes this fall.
ABBOTT AT RUSHVILLE

Rushville, Neb., Oct. 23, '93.
Hon. Geo. A. Abbott spoke here
yesterday to a crowded houso. He held
bis audience for about an hour and a
half, and they were more interested at
the close than at the beginning. His
address was a powerful plea for bimet
allism and populist doctrine generally,
and has made manv adherents to that
The populists are thoroughly organ
ized In this county and are "making
the fur fly" among tho adherents of
the old parties. A school house cam
paign was inaugurated shortly after the
county convention in the early part of
September and has been kept red-hot
ever since, and will be until t le populist
patty goes marching on to victory the
7th day of November. The party will
