In thte. or any other country. 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 oppression. ', 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..Siitiiiishm ft. la pvnedipnt j 8iusd " vuvo - i 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 .possible. 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. - m - . 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.

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 succeed. 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 arw hkidfiiinl.nt or identical end urfct Uu m to unite with us in political action, and to twko jmrt in ptvjiortlon to their number, in directing the Cause of Pn form.

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 Sale Announcement. 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 la that renowned hme of Poland Chlotts. S nco that time my son, upon whom I depend For help, has died, and now t rm compelled to dini-tiBo oun i f tho best herds in America.
