question. We were faithful in warning
the people, but th y did not believe us.
We were the cranks and calamity

brickbats, and in a few cases by murder

All these years of our anti-slavery
toil wo were contending with ignorance
and prejudice in its grossest form, but
all this time there was a reserve force.
These same men who mobbed us In
their mad rage of bigotry were not pre
pared to submit to ft divided country.
Long had the slave power dominated
congress. The AbolitlonUts all saw
that, but the masses did not see it. Not
until they were struck by the ugly fact,
and bloody hand of war did they see
that free press, free speech, and free
men were to be stricken dowa, or
slavery must die. Such men as Grant,
Sherman, Logan, and many others were
forced by war to come to our platform.
But they came at last And all the
previous years of our hard and discour
aging work this reserve force was on
our side, when the final test would
eome. Their Fourth of July work
through life, their love of country,
their pride in the grand work of our
ountry's fathers, and the realization of
immediate danger made soldiers and
heroes of them. We old liners had our
reward at last.
No man can feel more keenly than 1
do the mass of ignorance and indiffer
ence about him. Even many who vote
with us never spend time, money or
effort tobrlng their neighbors Into our
work. If one-half who voted for Hoi.
conb could be induced to get subscrib
ers for our papers, to circulate our re
form books, to hold meetings In school
houses and discuss the issues of the
day, we should very soon see Nebraska
safely landed beyond the power of the
lordly monopolies in our midst. Mono
polles are now what tne siave power
once was. A goodly number boo It, and
feel it, too. Hut the multitude think
there is no danger, and say so. Little
do they know of the rottenness In the
railroad hi-tory of this country, the
legislation touching bonds and money,
the infamous legislation on land mat-
tern, and all other matters. They trust
all to Congress, the legislators, the
courts, anything but mauly action in
themselves. They d. not think of that.

that Intelligence may be la time. But
there is much room for doubt and fear
that violence will be the next trial of
strength. This danger is much intensi
fied because so few see the nature of
our present condition, Maoy true men
do not yet comprehend the fact that
steam, electricity, and Improved ma
chinery have totally revolutionized
methods of production. Good men are
yet dreaming, and think the old policy,
the old methods, the old clothes of the
past will do for the new conditions
Men may be honest and think all that,
but honesty has o.ua been the Ignorant
victim. Steam and electricity and ira
proved machinery are all a latter-day
gift of God. They are lor millennial
purposes and are not to be sold for
money. They belong to the nations of
the earth, as a gift from Heaven
not to be sold. Had this been
seen and acted on from the first.
we should not now see a hundred
thousand men in a single city out of
work dependlag on soup houses for life.
Ignorance here may yet cost us much
sorrow. It seems very likely that ft
political and social earthquake is near
at bond. If so, "who shall show us any
good?" The men who have studied the
situation and comprehended it best will
be the men to lead us then. Such men
will bo in great demand when that time
comes. All those parts of the country
where these men are most numerous
will suffer leant. In the light of this
thought how our Alliance work' ought
to be sustained and vigorously prose
cuted. Every Alliance is the friend of
the community. Shame on the men
who take no interest in-sustaining it.

Th" Darbarlous Vagrant Laws
ALTO, 111., Dec. 26, '93
The execuiivo letter of Governor
Lewelling pertaining to tramps has
brought our disgraceful and inhuman
vagrant laws into notice. It would
seem our law makers got their Idea of
regulating vagrancy from the barbar
ous statutes of King Henry VIII Jo the
jear 1530. The following Is from the
work of Karl Marx entitled "Capital:"
They (the laboring class) vera
i"T"td en masse into beggars, robbers,
vagabonds, partly from inclination, in
mostoaees from stress of circumstances.
Hence at the end of the fifteenth cen
tury throughout Western Europe a
bloody, legislation against vagabondage.
Legislation treated them as voluntary
criminals and assumed that it depended
upon their own good will to go on
working under the old conditions that
no longer existed. Under Henry VIII
beggars old and unable to work re
ceived a beggars' license. On the
other hand, whipping and imprison
ment for sturdy vagabonds, and then to
swear an oath to go back to their birth
place or to where they had lived the
last three years to put themselves to
labor. What grim irony 1"
These statutes were more humane
than our American by being merciful
to the aged vagrants in licensing
them to beg. It would seem that the
tramps of 1530 were not in as bad con.
dltion a our modern tramp?, as we can
infer from the above statute that they
had a home where they could be sent,
while most of our tramps have no place
they can call home.
To show that these laws were Inef
fectual, statutes still more severe were
enacted. In the year 1547 it was enact
ed that for the second arrest of vagrancy
half the ear should be liced 3. And
to further prove this extra severity had
no effect It wis enacted In 1472 that for
a repetition of said offense they should
be executed. I think it was tlm Gov
Lewelling called a halt, or our law
makers would s on have made h a capl.
tal offense for a mun to walk over the
country In search of work.
If we would try to dlsover the caube
of vagrancy and fearlessly apply ih
remedy, we would need no laws at all to
regulate it, for there would bo no va
grants to regulate But If w should
discover and destroy this cause we
would destroy the goowe that lays the
golden egg for tho capitalist, llem-e
th subsidised press will k-n'p us from
discovering the cause.

The objects of tod club were reduced

Second To endeavor to advance the

The organization is spreading rapidly
in the cities. It Is the ethical impulse
which is the life of the church taking

world of industry.
This organization has already drawn

The renults of systematic study under
the leadership of scholars and scientists
and the friction of ducusnlon must lead
to the formation of correct opinions and

A POEM FOR THE NEW YEAR.
"Ring out the old, ring in the new.
Rlnff out the false, rlu in tha true."
Tbe millionaire, what right has n
To break high heaven's old decree
That mn should labor (or their bread?
Though sweat upon their brow should spread ,
What r ght to neither think aor work,
But have bin toll done by a clerk,
And yet to have hU rlche grow
Beyond bis need, and knowledge too?
If God to men the earth did give,
That all might have the means to live,
Whence tame the right to seize and h)ld
Tbe common land for rent of gold ?
What right has wealth to vacant lands
While poor men stand with idle hands,
nd wire and children lack for bread
Asd scares have shelter over head?
No right at ah, unless thai nlan
Should beat secure the good of man.
Who now bold lands by law called just,
A.t best bat bold tbe land In trast.
God made ths poor man! should be give.
His liberty f r chance to live?
For work should be give half Its worth,
A man w.tb equal rights of birth?
But what when men those rights deny
Then we must close tbe open!door
And keep cheap labor from our shore.
And if thitt plan shall not avail
To stop the needy 's bitter wall,
Then government large aid must glv,
Or forfeit its own right to live.
Those useless incomes, useless lands,
What can they do for workiess handf-?
Why, tax them, tax them more and mor.
And with the money help the poor.
Improvements make, give work to all.
Give to tbe shirk the chain and ball.
For honest toll no plunder craves,
Nor wants revenge and bloody graves.
Take from the strong the power to wring
For serrlcj '"all the trade will bring,"
And so of men's lore need to take
Advantage mean and profit make,
Permit no men with itching nand
To change tbe money of our land,
That they advantage sharp may tak
And larger debts for others make.
Grant privilege m equal share.
Give to tbe poor especial care.
So shall the land its ruler bless
For liberty and happiness.
