Stand up for Nebraska.
There are those who think the work
of the Nebraska Farmers' Alliance is
ended; that while tbe bankers of tbe
state keep op their organization with
the avowed purpose of "better lnflueno
ing legislation" In their bhalf, while
the merchants, manufacturers, lawyers,
doctors, men of every trade or pro'
fesslon, find, It to their interest to keep
up organizations to aid each other and
ook after their political welfare, tbe
agriculturalists of the stato and nation
have no Interest in common sufficient
for the existence of an organization, but
should leave their financial and political
business for office seeking politicians to
ook after. It grieves us to think how
little has been accomplished by the
Alliance com Dared with all that is
necessary to be done before the farm
ersof the state obtain anything like
ustloe. At times we grow weary and
discouraged when we realize that the
work of the Alliance Is hardly begun
and tbat after tbe weary years ot toil
of tbe best men and women ot the state
we have hardly taken a step on the
road to Industrial freedom. We know;
that although we may not arrive there
our children will enter Into the promised
and, and we can make their trials
fewer and llsrhter. even If we live not
to see the fall light of freedom for man
kind. We work In the knowledge that
our labor ot education is not In vain,
some one, sometime, will arise and call
the Alliance blessed. Meanwhile to us
who have learned "to labor and to wait"
there come sometimes sweet glimpses
of the land beyond, and it seems so
near, the road so short, that we can not
have long to wait to enter and possess
the land. ' '
There's a land where the toller is free.
Where no robber of labor can come,
Where wealth gl tes not powur to oppress,
Nor another man's labor to own .
In tbat sweet by and by
Which has been for long ages foretold,
In that sweet by and by
Moral worth will rank higher than gold.
W can a well In that land of tbe free,
If w will, in the near by and by;
We can soon wrest the scepter from gold.
We caa make labor free If we try.
Vote no interest whatever to gold,
Vote for naught which will favor a class,
Make an Injury offered to one
Tbe most vital concern et tbe mass.
It does not seem as if that would be
hard to do, nor that tho road to .the pro'
mlsed land of freedom need be long; yet
there is a shorter one given by a noted
guide hundreds of years ago. But they
say, he was visionary, and his way im
practicable. It was simply "Do unto
others as ye would they should do unto
you. Tne Jnri8iian way gioseiy w
lowed at tbe ballot box would soon
right every legalized injustice, and yet
the majority of the voters pretend to
be his followers. Had,,they been so in
deed and In truth how different would
h the condition of our country. We
have annually seen the greater part of
the wealth produced In the state legis
lated out of the hands of the rightful
owners and into tbe pockets of those
who are allowed to eat, although they
will not work.
The condition of tbe farmers of the
state has changed greatly In the last
Then the abolishment ot high rates
of interest on money and reduouen oi
freight rates was all the average Alli
ance member- desired. Thousands of
farmers who would have preserved
their homos If they could have obtain
ed that relief at that time bave now
had the mortgage cleared oft their farms
by the sherlft and are today without a
home, and they now demand tbat svea-

sees some hope of benefiting himself
going to the polls. A renter does i
care greatly for transportation charge
He who owns the land owns the mi
who works it, and as soon as freigh'
rates go down and prices rise the ren
is railed in proportion. So also he re
gards the money question. If the value
of his products is Increased by increas
ed money volume the rent is raised in
proportion so as barely to allow him to
exist to produce more. He has no hope
of education for bis children, or of giv
ing them a better chance in life than
be has until he is permitted to go upon
tbe unoccupied land of the state and
make for.himself a home while adding
yearly to the state's productive capacity
and wealth. It will soon be necessary
for any organization political or social
tbat wishes the renters' allegiance, to
advocate occupancy and use as tbe sole
title to land. And If they desire the
allegiance of those who, owing to an
insufficient money volume, have become
debtors, they mnst advocate a sufficient
medium of exchange so that no usury
Interest will be exacted for lta use. The
Alliance must not ask if an idea Is popu
lar, but rather is it right? It righ
advocate if, agitate It, wrlje It, speak it,
vote it. We can make it popular. If
we wish tbe farmers to join and keep
mp this society we must convince them
each and every one that it will benefit
him individually. We should take a
decided step forward In co-operative
work. We can compel the building of
a co-operative road to the Gulf. We
can get an agent to contract the crops
of the state at foreign markets for bet'
ter prices. We can by ordering ma
chinery, flour, coal, etc, In large quan
tities get greatly reduced prices, and
we ought to place ourselves on a level
with the' Grange and F.M. B. A. in
these respects, then each, member caa
soon receive a benefit and a new im
petus be given.
Some think the Peoplo's party has
taken the place of the Alliance. It bas
to some extent, but cannot entirely.
Leaving out business co-operation
which a political organization will not
touch, the Alliance has an educational
work to perform which no political
party can do. Politicians are notorious
ly cowardly, and not over truthful,
especially .the law-interpreting class
which make speeches for them, and the
people will not put faith in them or be
taught by them. '
A farmer can teach his brother farm'
ers much better the principles of politi
cal economy and what he needs to bet
ter his condition than tbe most silvery
tongued office-seeking lawyer tbat ever
lived In any , party. There is a large
class (yearly becoming larger) who put
no faith in political organizations of
any class, as regards benefiting tbe toll
ers. They think as soon as the party
attains power politicians will crowd to
the front who care only tor the spoils
of office," and the wishes ol the voters
will be Ignored. The Alliance must
make it its future work to educate tbls
class to demand tbe Referendum and
diraet legislation. It is an excellent
time te show the folly of placing ene
t.tt.h of the legislative power in the

If this is to become a government by
the people, they must have the right to
Initiate new laws and not have import

sppolnted by some scoundrel in the
shape of a speaker. No power higher
than the vote or veto of the people can
exist In a free country. The Nebraska

Editor ALLiANtoK-lNDEFEKDENT, Lin
My Dear Ski As you are perhaps
aware, I havjor some years been col
lecting material for a history of the
abor movement, which I trust will be
more nearly exhaustive than anything
which bas yet appeared. I had hoped
that I might have the work ready by
this timo: but ihe undertaking is a vast
and expensive one, and It is likely to te
two or three years yet before it appea r.
It would not have been possible for me
to do as much as I have without the
assistance of many engaged in the
labor movement, who have sent me
muoh valuable material, as constitu
tions of labor organizations, annual re
ports, pamphlets, newspapers, etc.
It has occurred to me tbat it would :
be helpful to have as nearly a complete
set of specimen copies of labor papers
a given date as possible, and 1 beg
you to assist me In carrying out this
plan, by giving this early publication
and otherwise, as may be in your
power. I would like one copy of one
Issue of every labor paper, every farmer t
alliance or orange paper H and every paper
devoted to mial reform, appearing in the
United St at a in January, 1894, and I
want that Issue appearing on January
, or the first one appearing after that
Will all papers of the kind mentioned
above copy this and help me in tne
manner indicated? The papers will be
collected, bound and deposited In the
library of the " Wisconsin Historical
Society in the State Capitol at Madison.
It will be something unique and valua
ble to all interested in the labor move
ment. I hope those editors who al
ready send me their papers will let me
have one extra copy for this collection.
Please address the copies to me at
Madison, Wis., marking them "Speci
mens for the Collection." "
Yours very truly,
Richard T. Ely.
