The education which U has accomplish
ed ha giyen rise to a new politica'
rtv. comnoeed in large part oi lis
own member, which Is already recog
nized by the friend of liberty aa the
strongest champion of the rights of the
people, and by the mlnionsof plutocracy
as at present the most dangerous foe to
', All thla has been accomplished not-
J withstanding the lack of system In Its
I f educational plans, and the mistakes of
I I Its friends; and In eplte of the deter-
I mined oDDOsitlon of Its enemies.
Tt mnnot be destroyed. Pretended
lends may assail it, and, actuated by
BDirltof envy, may injure, and de
stroy for a time, the reputation and
prospects of its truest and ablest mem
bers; open foes may denounce and ridi
cule it; but it will still live. And
though, through some fiery trial It
should for a moment be consumed, Its
spirit would live, and its body, Phoenix
like, would spring from Its ashes with
renewed vigor and purity, to keep alive
and burning the fires of liberty In our
beloved land forever.
We have met today, my brothers and
sisters, to carefully consider what is
neocEeary to lnjrease th efficiency of
nur nnranlzatloD. to improve Us meth
ods, to add to its membership, to re-
pair any Drescn ma uj u mm
made In its walls, and to secure the btst
preparation possible for the ultimate
success of true liberty and the enjoy
ments of equal rights In our country.
Change of circumstances renders
change of plans necessary. The arrange
ments for County and Stale Lecturers
were made when we were financially
prosperous as an organization, and when
the money failed the plans failed, and
the work ceased
No general educational system In so
vast a country as this, can succeed and
nrosner without constant supervision
Some members qualified for the work
and selected by their fellows, must
make it a business in their respective
counties to visit every neighborhood to
revive and reorganize old Alliances, or

I and necessary, and by precept and ex
lJiortation keep them alive and active
Jin the work. And it is just as necessary
too, that there should be State super
vision and visitation of the different
Counties. But how can these things
be accomplished without money, and
how can the money be obtained? These
questions and many others must be con
sidered and provided for.
The Manual ought to be revised and
added to, and provisions made lor co-
. operating with the Alliances in the
ot.hfir States or the National Council, to
brine about a uniform National System
pf discussions and studies a9 soon as
W A inore efficient support oi ine .inowb-
papers which throughout the State are
disscrimnating Alliance principles
ought to bo given if possible In Kansas
the plan of issuing a small Monthly
paper under the direct supervision of
the officers of the State Alliance is be
ing tried; it is being sent free to all
'gf. Alliance members who promptly pay
their dues. I think such a publication
in this State, by giving a cheap and
ready means of communication between
the State Officers and all the members,
would in connection with a hearty sup
port, of tut true Alliance papers now
i ! r -
I , X existing, do much to build up the Alii
I ance and increaso its usefulness.

A spirit of voluntary work and sell-
h. aaerilice must be revived. Our ordr
! cannot be built up by those who only
fi)S enlist for the sake of financial reward
or Political preferment, and failing in
these, denounces the Alliance and con
demn its principles. Every good cause
in this world has hitherto achieved sue
cess, mostly through the selfsacrillcing
spirit and efforts of its founders and
adherents. And alt nonjjh '"the Laborer

have found lodgement in J our hearts;
and in the spirit of true vharlty, (the
corner stone of our Order,) J counsel and
plan and work for the buiilding up of
the Alliance and the success of its aims
an 3 principles. 1
Our cause is not in such la condition
as to justify discouragemejr The Alli
ances have in a majoritfi the Coun
ties become remiss In Iping'vplb.eir
meetings. As a resuft they iave re
lapsed into a dormant (Imdition. But
they may be roused bypersistent and
wisely directed efforts,! aided s& they
are sure to be by the agtreaiivfc acts of
our enemies which musti more and more
convince the Farmers lhat their only
hope of prosperity defends on , their
united and continual efUorts to support
their own interests ana defend their
own Rights. t f
Many seem surprised because the
People's Party, the legitimate offspring
of the Alliance was no more speedily
and completely successKjil. I think the
success has been wonderftjJ, considering
the tremendous strength alnd influence
of ,the concentrated and clLscly organ
ized Money Power, wbosl Oligarchy
must be overthrown ere the People's
Party or any other which would defend
the interests of the Peopli can fully
As soon as the reasons ol j partial fail
ure are closely connected v ith the Alli
ance, it will not be amiss o briefly re
view them at this timejthat we may
commence immediately) correct the
mistakes which we hav made, so far
as it Is possible to correct them. One
of these mistakes was iccasionedby the
natural impatience orf our members to
commence political action before they
were prepared for it And then, as
soon as that action fyas begun, the
Alliance, whose discus iionsof Political
Principle had furnished the platform of
the New Party, an whose arduous
labors and systematic organization had
banded its members together, ready to
unite their votes tot give it efficient
support; the Alliances were in a great
measure neglected. J It was as though
preparation was beif g made for a great
war and the army ll being rapidly re
cruited and drilled! for the service.
And when its numbep were about half
as great as those of the enemy the re
cruiting offices were closed, the drilling
practice stopped and the army sent out
to content with the overwhelming num
bers, and military experience of the
enemy, whose leaders had passed
through many battles and were skilled
in war, and whose soldiers had been
thoroughly drilled in unquestioning
and orderly obedience to the commands
of their Officers. Partial success of
such an army would be surprising, and
ultimate triumph would seem to be
impossible. . t ,
So far aa possible we must remedy
these mistakes. Not by retiring from
the field, but by opening the recruiting
offices again all over the land, drilling
our soldiers, not to unquestioning
obedience, but to intelligent and orderly
co-operation; every one so loyal as to be
willing to serve in the ranks without a
murmer, and every one so well drilled
as to be competent to carry the Banner,
or lead and direct the battle if chosen
for that duty.
We must build up our Alliances, re
cruiting their numbers and reviving
their energies, and by well arranged
and connected studies and discussions,
arm and equip all our members for
Righteous Political warfare, and qualify
each one to perform his or her assigned
part in directing the battle.
No campaign excitement, no political
bargaining and wirepulling, can give
our cause permanent success; because
these very practices backed by the cor
rupt use of money and indulged in and
depended on so generally for success
by the dominant parties of the Country,
are what, in a great degree have
rendered a new Political Party neces
sary. We must use our best effort to In
duce the laborers in the towns and cities
to sustain and build up their owu organ
izations, which may have the same ob
jects as tho Farmers' Alliance. Gree t
them as brethern, convince them of the
fact that the interests of all honest and
Industrious People in city or country

best adapted to secure permanent use
fulness and ultimate success for cur or
ganization. The rejoicing of the Pluto
cracy over the asserted dying out and
disintegration of the Noble Order of
Knights of Labor shows how they
would shout for joy, and triumph over
the People in their fiendish glee, if
they could by any means destroy the
Alliance or impair its influence
And let us a we go back to our re
spective homes, see to it that our own
home Alliances are each put in the best
working order possible. That the meet
ings are regular and frequent, That
the discussions are systematic and fully
carried out, and Jthat every man and
woman of respectable ccharacter, and
eligible to membership, is speedily en
rolled as a memoerof the Alliance and
brought under its full educational in
fluences, and our success is certain. We
may not keep pace with our hopes but
we will "Reap if we faint not"
Napoleon Bonaparte's military ex
perience led him to exclaim vlhat God
helps the heaviest battalion This
may not always be true in bloody war
fare. But God Is always on the side of
Right and truth. These words are
inscribed on our Dunners and -on our
hearts. cAnd we will have the heavy
battalions too if we only do our duty
in educating and arousing the People.
Everywhere in our Country they are
now earnestly enquiring, . "What is
Truth?" ' ,
Be it ours to help them answer this
momentous question. And then Know
ing the Truth, Speaking the Truth,
Living the Truth, and Voting the
Truth, God will help us, and "The
Truth shall make us Free."
The Crete Nurseries.
"The soil of Nebraska seems to be
peculiarly suited to the growing of ap
ple seedlings, forest seedlings and ap
ple trees. Our new rich soil grows a
better tree in two years than the state
of Illinois and east can grow In thne
years. Our soil is also fresh and free
from aphis and other troubles incident
to tree growing in the old nursery cen
tera. Nursery trees grown in Nebraska
are also free from borers.
The Crete Nurseries secured a con
tract to grow 60,000 apple trees for
leading Illinois nurst ry at pay if g
prices. These nurseries have pur
chased a ton of French apple seed cf
Vilnorian Andreux & Co., and a ton of
Vermont apple seed, which will be
planted this winter when the frost is
out two inches. The French sell the
cleaner seed because labor is bo very
cheap over there that they can by band
pick out tbe crushed and defective
seed. Thesejseeds will plant from 60 to
65 acres. The value of the product
usually averages iext fall $110.00 to
$250.00 per acre. These seedlings are
very much preferred by eastern nur
serymen for grafting or budding to any
they can produce themselves, for the
reasons above stated."
With so many reliable homo nurser
ies within reach to whom the customer
can always return for satisfaction and
collection, It is surprising that people
will continue to buy trees of eastern
traveling men, paying old time and
high prices therefor, when the very
best trees and plants of varieties ac
climated and true to name can be had
at home at greatly reduced prices,
suited to these hard times.
Mrs. A. ftf. Edwards' Poland China
In calling attention of breeders in
general to this, the coming event in
the history of Poland-China hog sales,
which is to take place on Wednesday,
January 17, 1894, at East Grove Siock
Farm, quarter of a mile east of Fre
mont, Neb., we feel that we can't do
better than quote the- announcement
which appears in her catalogue, which
is ready for distribution and will be
rent free to all who apply. She says to
the breeders: "When - in January,
1882, 1 advertised a closing-out tale, I
fully intended to sell every animal 1
owned, but after selling 101 head, at
ao average of about fifty dollais per
head, the demand seemed to be sup
plied, the day gone, and 1 still had on
hand some one hundred of my best bred
younger things. I saw then I was not,
as 1 Intended to be, out of to business,
and so went at once to Ohio and bought
a car lond of the best fct'Kik to be found

Chlotts. S nco that time my son, upon
whom I depend For help, has died, and
