Editor Aluahcb-Ikdepekdkkt:
What is the matter with the Nebraska
State Journal? In the issue of the
Journal of February 20th, appear an
ditorlal headed, "Braying in Con
grress." I bare not bad the opportunity
to read Mr. McKeighan's speech, hve
only seen the comments cf the Journal;
and from these commeits it is quit
evident the donkejr in this case la the
Journal's commentator. The Journal
ijV'Nebraska suffering under th
pressure of bard times resulting from
blunders made by Damocratlc 'states-
men , ana so r wo .
The above paragraph shows the
brains as well as the honesty of Mc
Kelghan critics.
Is it possible that any sane man with
as much bralos as an ordinary male can
bolievs that all of our troubles, both
state and national, are caused by a prob
able reduction of a tariff so high that
t cut down the importations created
by a monopoly market, acd thus de
stroyed the revenues of the government,
causing a deficiency to be supplied by
bonds? Wf hate the tariff yet, the same
old McKlnley bill. My friends, It is not
fear that kills' this country, but facts.
It is not the blunders of Democracy
alone, but the actual performance of
the party In power for the lent twenty
years or more. The crimiaal acts of
the Democracy consist in coc gum mat
ing fully the work partly performed by
the out-going Republican party. I be
tariff or Wilson bill can now cut but a
small figure in the matter of restoring
prosperity. I think our manufacturing
Interests are in about the same fix that
Nebraska was In a few years since when
we sold corn at ten to fifteen cents per
vNow what is the matter with the
tsduntry? Suppose the truth is told,
how will it suit? Not much, I think.
Bat here it is:
First, Too much appropriation by
congress, too much for rivers and har
bors, 'too muchjfor public buildings.
Bellevue and Omaha, are specimens;
but they reach from Mai Be to Galves
ton, Texas. Abo too much navy, too
big salaries, too many officers, in fact;
too much humbug legislation, too much
credit and money invested in nan-productive
Then let us come to our own stste.
Who has been making appropriations
for the favored institutions and political
grasshoppers for the last forty years?
No blunders about that g. o. p., but a
straight steal all the way through.
Who has stood up better for Nebraska
than the Journal editors, Mcsher, Dun
dy, &o.? Perhaps I ought to extend
the list, but It is so Ions; I forbear. It
may, however, be traced from govern
ors down to county officers,
We now will notice briefly the last
bray ef the Journal donkey, wherein be
says, No one who is not an entire ignor
amus in questions of political economy
and finance could pretend to argue that
any law-making power can legislate 50
cents worth of silver up to equality
with 100 cents worth of gold."
The above proposition of the State
Journal comfounds common sense with
copper cents. He measures both silver
and gold with imaginary cents, or cop
per cents. Now if we take valuable
commodities, such as wheat, flour, beef,
corn, cotton, iron, steel, horses, sheep,
and all things in common use of intrins
ic value as the true value by which to
value or fix the price of silver and gold,
we find that silver Is still at a parity
with commodities; but money has gone
up, or everything has (tone down except
gold. It Is evident that every possible
effort has been made by the ruling
power of this country to legislate the
-value out of silver. Whether they have
succeeded or not we find and know that
our United States money should not
depend on the market value or parity
of tho metals In any foreign market.
' The parity of different kinds of money
is, and can be maintained only by, fiat,
or law; but no power under (Jod can
maintain parity of the two metals ovtr
the universe. The value of the metals
Is, however, affwcted by legislation
very materially by Increasing the de
maud. Kven a State Jourual editor
ought to know that much. And H
would sem to me that the demand for
m ney about these times In or J or to
discharge and pay off the burdens Ira
posrd on the people by a long lino of
monopoly usurpations and unjust and
xtravagaot legislation, justifies our
Independent ttiBgrratimea and senators
in standing firmly b) the old money of
the conrfitatloa until the last trump

Decb's Rep y to
a Coinmunica
Stoddard, Neb., Feb 15, 1894
W. H. Dkch, Ithaca, Neb.
Dear Sir: I have long wanted to
write you in regard to the condition of
our country, ana asK you a question.
First, allow me to state the situation
as 1 see it. in locking over me Domi
cal field of the world and the Usited
States In particular. I find that the
momv cower has now, and for a long
time has bad, control of the productive
industry and from each and all Shylork
demands exornuant vm. in snorx, wnai
ever we do is at the sweet will of the
mosey oligarchy of th world.
Now wbn the people of the United
S-ates shall see the true condition which
they will before long, and resolve upon
havlne reform, refusing longer to play
serf for a set of money kings and elect
a people's congress ana president to
UaiiA monev direct to the people, as Per
sub-treasury or som better plan, con
triving to give r'ni rrora me s&yiocks,
what will be the cnnwquenre?
You are aware that Wall street can
refuse to discount or loan at any time
tbey see fit: or, ia other words, the?
can in ten days time stop every wheel
In factory and ra'lroad and blow out
every furnace in the nation.
Huppnge men wo eieci iru men,
ptr'o'", In November; between Novem-
her a d March Ht. is four months. At
leas. six months would pass away be-fo-o
relief rould be glyen. and bv that
time G"d only knows what would 'hap
pen. Shylock bavin fir been defeated at
the polls would kick up a terrible row
amongst the people by refusing to loan
and crowding eilWtinns, idleness
would soon bwome prevalent all over
the nation. They would take advant
age of this and incite riot, insurrection
and rebellion, anything would be better
for tbem than to allow the people to rim
their own business, as by It Shylock
would low bis MoodiiuoklnBr vocation.
This is the situation as T see it How
can we ever grt tfor? Would it b
pssm for the people to enact tbe'e
reform laws and pnt tbem In force with
out the greatest bloodshed our nation
has ever seen? I am a Populist. I be
lieve In the demands of the Oroala
platform Land, lab"r and transporta
tion are the neceosarv means by which
the people obtain. But money la the
means by which we exchange. Distri
bution, distribution is the. question.
Now tell me Brother Dch. Is it ros
lhle for the people to get Just distribu
tion without a terrible war?
Hoping you will writ we, or what
would h better, write THE ALLIANCE
Independent so that w ll may read
It, I am, Yours tru'v,
Norman Cowden,
Brother Cowden without a doubt
szes up the situation as a whole very
nearly correot. Yet there are questions
to be looked at from two "sides: tour,
after the people bad proved by tbere
ballet that they wished reform, it would
be a very unhealthy move for the
capitalist to incite riot, as be is the
owner of the property which would be
ruthlessly laid waste. Besides he has a
physical carcass which he is just as
careful of as he Is of the gold he wor
ships. Again, we are a union of stater.
The various executives of the states
remember we must carry states before
we carry the nation) could in the event
of Shylock shutting dwn on loans to
ceate a pmio, call special session? of
the various leglolatives and devise (a
per Clearing House Certiflcites) a cur
rency t bridge over the chasm between
November and such time as congress
could give national relief. AU that we
want to do Is to educite the mass ot the
peonle to the fact that there are a lot of
men who have by innumerable methods
placed men in our national halls of con
eresg, who, if crime is to be measured
by the amount of injury inflicted put to
shame, so far as heartlessness is con-
cernr d, the worst pirate that ever cut s
threat or s iuttlrd a ship.
No, Brother uowaen, l nave still an
abiding faith In the American people as
aclxss, and woe be to the scoundrals
ho after the people have once sees
their treachery and have by ballot de
manded hands off, who will then try to
stir up a strife
AU we need to do is to be honest with
ourelves, keep up the educational war,
t,nd place the People's party rape rs in
to the hand of those yet blind. The
saving of Lincoln Is at true today a
when be expressed the thought:
"You can fool pari if ihe people all
of the time you can foot all of the peo
ple some t the time; but you can not
foul all ot the people all of the time "

The Question of Co-Operatlve Par
Judging from reports published la
i he allianck-Indbi'EWDBnt Mrs. J
T. Kellie, Bute Secretary, has gone in
to the wholesale buainess for the sa e of
farm neceseiiiea. Mrs. Kellie would be
of better service to the cause If she
would let that part of the businees alone,
and give her attention to mare vital
question of the order. The Democrat
believes In toe old auatre, "Live and let
live." The MUligan Progress.
The farmers of Nebraska have always
been letting everybody elee live, and ws
propose to do so yet, but we claim the
right to live ourselves and to attend to
our business, financial and political, and
will do it in spite of all the Democrats
of Nebraska, from Morton down to the
editor in Fillmore county. The farm
ers ef the state knew my ideas on
co-operation before they elected me
tecretary, and if they did not like them
or wanted some one who believed the
chief end of the farmers was to produce
wealth for every one on earth except
themselves to enjoy, they might have
ktpt me in the rear and put the Demo
crat editor in for secretary. I know
that in our county and some others the
Alliance has been run too much by
thoie who were afraia the farmer did
not have sense enough to attend to his
political business and his financial also,
and they promised us that If we let co
operation alene and attended te politics
they would soon right all our wrongs.
Well, maybe the farmers have not got
sense enough to do both it Is very
kind to tell him so; but tbere is his
wife, you know she belongs to the Al
liance also, and they won't let her vote,
so why can't she put ia her time tend
ing to finances?
We have only taken the initial step
in SCO-operation yet; but I am corres
ponding with secretaries of national
and state organizations who have ex
perience in this line. There is no
reason why we can not transact most of
our own business, and if the one who is
thrown out of a job wants to live let him
produce wealth to exchange with us.
We will do all we can to procure for
him free and equal opportunities to
labor, which is all he can rightfully de
mand. Sheridan county is taking the
ead in this good work. They have
established a purchaslsg bureau com
posed of delegates from the various
Alliances in the county, and they write
me that they are saving their members
a good per cent. They bulk their or.
ders and buy where they can get goods
I presume the merchants do not like
this, but they have by their votes
brought about conditions which force
the. farmer to dispense with all unnecet-
sary hired help. We find we have been
paying them pret'y high prices. As a
sample of what we may soon be able to
d in all lines I quote sewing machlces.
High arm, improved, f 13; latest style

Interests of the town can be better
served by pursuing an independent
course. Ah! you want to serve the
bt'Bt interests of the town, and then
dictate how the farmers shall run their
Boclety do you? Well there are others
the same way but we do not always do
their bidding. Henceforth the farmer
proposes to live and you might as well
conclude to let him. Yaurs for Indus.

Too Many Organizations Weaken Us.
SnELTON, Neb , Feb. 20th, '94.
Editor Alliance-Independent;
Dear Sir: What Is the use of trying
to keep up so many different organiza
tions, each having the same object in
view, viz: the enactment of the Omaha
platform into the law of the land? Such
a course only invites jealousy and dis
cord and has a tendency to divide the
force which should move as one solid
mass. If all of the different organiza
tions having the same objects in view
would unite and form one grand new
society, the people would flock around
its standard in droves. In our present
divided state the enemy will meet us
and defeat us pkcemeal. Can this con
dition of affairs be right? It certainly
is not good politics, and politics must
restore the Republic. If not, what then?
slavtry, and in time the dernier ressort.
Let us hoist our beloved Omaha plat
form for our banner and form Into one
grand Industrial Legion and march on
to sure victory. The rotten ramparts
of the enemy's works would not long
stand such an assault.
. D. V. Wood.
In towns and In the country where it
is not thought advisable to organize the
Alliance the Industrial Legion ought to
be organized. There would seem to be
a wider influence for and better eaances
to establish a working Legion, because
p jo pie in town and farmers are equally
eligible. We muit economize our
forces and perfect organization, such
an organization in each locality as will
draw into it the greatest number ef
voters. Editor Alliance-Independent.
Co-Operation Without Capital.
Hartwell, Neb., Feb 22, 1894.
Editor Alliance-Independent:
As co-operation is the order of the
day (and I think it ought to be) allow
me to explain a plan not original with
me at all, but which has worked well in
the past, and will work again.
It is for six Alliances with less than
10 families each, representing the trade
of 60 families, tcmeet and ask for bids.
The trade of sixty families is worth
bidding for they can easily obtain bids
from dealers in the different lines of
merchandise. Our contracts were made
for three months; the dealer bound him
self to furnish the goods at a certain
pr cent, above cost, and submitted his
books for inspection by a oommltte ap
pointed to examine them. The farmers
bound themselves to buy ot the men
they contracted with and If they did not
they were expelled from the purchasing
agency. Each member was granted a
printed card (momborshlp card) signed
bv the president and secretary to pre
sent at the store. Farm produce was
always taken In exchange for goods, the
same as cash. Of course in the start
the merchant squirmed and stld, "the
farmers will not stick together," etc.
Out th Uriiior at wj stuuk, and some
merchant always came to time and con
tracted with us; and I must say f jr the
credit ot the merchants that the most
ly dealt fairly with us.
Tho con r wt was let to the lowest
rvsponlb!e dealer without fear er favor
11 this plan the farmer does not Invest
a cent, has no stock to carry aad gets
his roods nearly at cost, and hat th
bon"Qt ot the merchant's experience,
wbloa Is ot no small value.
AU that ha glvrs Is his trade, and be
caa stop at the end ot th contract if he
desires. Our contract were mad fir
rah, hut this did not hinder te dealer
frdu rlvlef ii" on a g4 ir btur
terms If he wUhed lo.
Well, I hear wn say, we jnuat not U
