The Mercury, organ of the Texas Far.
mer Alliance, after propping that the
state loan the school fund, presents In
support of the plan the facts regardinf
such loaning of school funds in Indiana,
Oregon and Iowa, where the state
school funds have been loaned to the
noon'afora considerable past period,
twenty-eight years in inaiaan. n
money was and is lent to the farmers
on first mortgage securities and not a
dollar baa been losU The evidence of
the state officials is, that "tbe plan has
gives universal satisf action." The ex
panse of maklrg the loans in Indiana
has been but $4 50 usually, less tha i
half of one per cent on a f 1,000 loan.
In New York stare an act was passed
April 4, 1837, "authorizing a loan of
certain moneys belonging to the United
States, deposited with the state of New
York for safe keeping.", Duiing the
fifty-six years wkica have intervened
since that act was passed that money of
the Halted States hns been leaned to the
New York farmers.
In Iowa the law reg ardlDg loans of state

several limits; and this makts a perfrc'

wild, visionary, government loaning
schemes. Their own acts furnish an
answer to and efctoppel for their gov-

safety of money which they have thus

a much more perfect, better guard? c

Letter From our Stat Chairman.
Omaha, NtB., Not. 22,
Dear Sib: The result Is now well
known by all, and that we did not win
our supreme judge is something to be
deplored. It shows that the political
education cf many of our people is very
faulty or they would surely have voted
in their owa interest. However; the
fight is over, and tbe next thing to do is
to prepare for tbe next campaign.
During the winter months every mem
ber of our party should carry on a cam
paign of education. This great fight
for human right is going to win yet. .
We know no such word as fall, a; d tbe
opportunity now for education is great
er than ever before. We have right on
our side and right must prevail :. I hops
to see the work carried on tula winter
in every cchool house and every town
and village. While we have our llber'y
let us make use of it to the best advant
age. ' We Lave both parties to whip,
therefore prepare for a hard battle.
The Republican victories this year
were In my opinion, very much eBcour
sgod by President Cleveland and bis
forces. It is well known that he look
ed with dltfavor uponthe Democratic
ticket In the state of New York, while
he openly opposed the Democratic
ticket in New Jersey. He has no love
for Governor Boles of Iowa, and it was
noticeable in the Iowa compalgn that
tbe administration Democrats did not
exert themselves In the least In tbe
party's favor. Likewise be wai very
bllent in Ohio.
The Democratic candidate for gover
nor in Ohio is a very strong silver man,
and Is outspoken In favor of thecolnage
ratio remaining at 16 to 1. The vote in
Ohio demonstrates without - furthtr
comment that the administration was
opposed to Neal's election, thereby pre
ferring the apostle of protection to a
free tllver, free trade Democrat. Then,
in our own state, see what they did. J
am reliably informed that J Sterling
Morton sent thousands of stereotyped
letters to silver Democrats urging them
as true Democrats to stand by Judge
IrvlDe whom he knew had no show
whatever of making a successful fight.
Tken look at the vote In Mr. Morton's
home county for an illustration of what
the administration Democrats d'd.
Oioe county which ba always been
Democratic, elected its DomocraMc
county officers, bat they dldn .t'sta d
by Jide Irvine ' Ob, no. Judge Han ¬
son the Republican nominee itne cana
date of tbe party tbey pretend to fight)
carried the county by a handsome
plurality. Many other instances can
be cited of a similar kind in various
localities of tbe state. Taken all in all
It plainly demonstrates to me that the
Democratic voters bave been
played for suckers, not only in Nebras
ka but generally aoorer the country. 1
further believe It Is the sole intention
now of tbe high officer in the admlnis'
tration to play into tho hand of the
Republicans purposely, In order to try
to keep down tbe mugulfloent new party
that offers rubstantial relief to a suiter
ir, much abused 'people. I do not
for a moment give President Cleveland
credit for possessing the orainstoman
ipulate the voters, but he certainly has
a brainy lot of advisers to consult with,
and they are in my opinion men wbo
have no conscience whatever wno never
think of the right or wronf sid- of
question seriously, but simply consider
all thltigs politically irom a seinso
tfanflnoint: that Is. they do whatever
the money speculators want done in
consideration that they receive their
backing to keep themselves in power.
Cleveland's advUers are like himself,
neither Democrats or Republicans, but
full fledged members of the gold party,
as such they will work In the interest
of the gold party, and our hope is that
the business Interests will "take a tum
ble to themselves" and realize that their
interests are Identical with those of the
agriculturalists and city workers. Many
of the manufacturers now of the east as
well as the west and south are waking
up to the fact tt at this great fight made
for silver was a fight in their Interests
and thev did not know It. Our future
hope is educatlou in political economy
and sui'uly the leaders of the gold parly
can not fool a majority of the people all
tbe tlmo. lieepectfully,
