' ,. Secretary's Office, )
Melroy, Dec. 6, 1831. f
To the Members of the Subordinate
Alliances of the State: ,
Gentlemen: In response to a gen
eral wish expressed in many parts of
the state, and for the reason that the
regular annual meeting of the Alliance
occurred at a date when farmers are
generally detained at home .by the
urgency of theii private affairs, the
Executive Committee have determin
ed to cah it special meeting of the
Siate Alliance, to be held at Hastings,
Adams Co., n Wednesday and Thurs
day. Jan. 25th and 1:6th, 1883.
' The ratio of representation for this
meeting will be the same as for the
regular annual meeting,, viz: one del
egate for each Subordinate Alliance,
and one additional for each twenty
tive members or major fraction there
oi of the same.
Lut inaddition to the regular dele
gates, all' members of tlie Alliances of
the State are urgently inyited to be
The task the Alliance has set for
itself is a severe one. It is to secure
the election of a legislature which will
enact just laws and enforce the pro-
visions of the State Constitution in re
gard to corporations to secure the
election of representatives in Congress
and a U. S. Senator who will be faith
ful servants of the . people of their
state instead f attorneys for a rail
road corporation, and the election of
State oflicera who will be in full sym
pathy with the people on the great
subject. of transportation., That all
this, and more, can be accomplished
by thorough organization, the events
of the past few months have fully de
monstrated. Therefore, let this special meeting
be a grand gathering of the bone and
sinew of the state, representing its
greatest material interest, and let tlie
measures for further organization
which it may adopt be' such as to se
cure beyond ptradvetiture the achieve
ment or the objects for which our so
ciety was instituted, and let Nebraska
continue to occupy the proud position
she has achieved as leader of the sis
terhood of western States in the anti
monopoly : movement. ' 15y order of

Senator Vest has introduced a bill pro
viding for the expenditure of 313,000-
000 in the improvement of the Mississ
ippi and Missouri Hi vers, the money to
be expended under tlie direction of
the Engineer Corps of the army, one
oue-half on one river and one
half ou - the other, in accordance
with the plans already recommended
by the Mississippi Biver Commission
It is well that the general subject
should be broached as soon as possible.
nnd it . may be that the bill offered
by Mr. Vest is as good as any that may
be suggested. But the whole matterjia
one which should be discussed in a
broad and comprehensive spirit, The
importance of a systematic improve
ment of the great central water-course
of the nation should be tharoughly ap
preciated by Congress. It should hrst
make up its mind that the work is one
that is to be thoroughly prosecuted,
that it is no mere local affair, but one
involving the main current of the na
tional trade, and hence affecting large
ly the national prosperity.
This being understood, it would be
wise to examine and review the re
ports of the Mississippi Biver Com
mission. If the suggestions of that
body are decided to be the best at
ta'nable, with a view to permanency
and effectiveness, then they should be
adopted. If any doubts exist as to the
advisability of following them, the
matter should be settled before the ex
penditures commence. This is an en
terprise that should be built up on
sure foundations from the bottom.
The appropriation of a little dab of
money here and a little dab there is as
a rule, sheer wastefulness. No plan.
of course, is expected to place the main
rivers in such a condition that they
will need no further attention, but
there is an attainable degree of thor
oughness which will greatly diminish
the cost of future labor, and this is
what is to be aimed at. The general
plan being decided upon, it ought to
be strictly adhered to, without refer
ence to the cries of the member from
Podunk that his "deestrick" is in a
hurry to have some public money dis
tributed within it.
The chief enemy to the proper treat
ment of our grand river system is the
pressure brought to bear on indiqidual
Congressmen to get local appropria
tions. It has embarrassed the prose
cution of useful and necessary work,
and thrown such a discredit on the
river and harbor bills, that there is a
natural desire to separate the Mississ
ippi scheme from them. If this con
templated improvement is con
ducted on correct and economic prin
ciples, Congressmen must rise above
district and state lines and regard the
country as a whole. It would be wise
unless there is plenty of money to
spend, to let even the Missouri alone
until the Mississippi is taken care of
to the point of conilnence of the two
rivers. This, regarded from the
standpoint, is as much an improve
ment of the Missouri as it is ef the
Mississippi, for it is claimed 'that the
Missouri is the main river, from its
headwaters in Montana to the Gulf,
and that the upper Mississippi is the
tributary. There, is nothing in the
names in this matter. The idea is to
make thorough work from the. foun
dation, attend to the principal, stream
for main roadway first, and then to
the tributaries, .
If Congress decides to spend, large
amounts of. money right away, well
and good. " Then the' amount of early
work may be extended; but the prin
ciple 4 to, be adhered to. always, is put

1882 THE GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, 1882.
In Its prospectus for 1881 the Olobe-Deine-rrat
announced with pride and satisfaction the
ejection of (ien. (im Held aud the belief tiiat
his administration would be so winely counsel
ed and so well conducted that It would give a
new lease of power to the party under which
the nation had grown free, strong and prosper
ous. The vile band of an assassin ha since
stricken down the good and gifted man who,
while we wrote a year ago.stood on the thresh
old of the Presidential otllce. In the prime and
vigor of manhood, with a future full of honor
able promise to himself and his conntry. The
high trust which the people had reposed In Mini
was dropped by the palsied hand of death
when but a small part ef the great work upon
which lie had entered had been accomplished.
But to quote bis own memorable words when
the saddest of all American tragedies was en
acted, nearly seventeen years at'o. "(iod
rekrns, and the Government at Washington
The mantle whtch was voted to .lames A.
Garfield by the people falls upon Chester A.
Arthur under tho Constitution ef the United
States, and there Is every reason to believe
that he will worthily wear it. He was almost
the unanimous choice of the Chicago Conven
tion for Vice President, and his name and ef
forts contributed perhaps more than anything
else to the success of the Hetiublican ticket in
t lie State of New York. He is a man of broad
views, fully informed on all public questions,
and he enters upon the duties of his oRice de
termined to discharge them honestly and con
scientiously. Hie (ilobe-Democrat pledges
hiiu its cordial susport In every pood word aud
work tor the country and for the Kepublican
party. We hope and believe that under his
prudent and skillful leadership the evil spirit
of faction will disappear from the ranks of the
party, and that unity and harmony will prevail
in all its ceunsels. 'I'll is end once secursd
there can be no dout ot future success. A large
ii ajurity of the people of this country are i;e
publicans in sentiment and sympathy, aud
nothing but Internal discord can imperil our
triumpii at the polls while the choice is be
tween Republicanism and Democracy.
The (Hone-Democrat has no new declaration
of orinciples to announce. It can fairly ak
judgment as to the future from the record of
the past. It stands tirtnly by the platform of
the party on all national questions : believes in
the equal rights of all men in law anil politics ;
a sound currency with an honest silver dollar
for part ot it: a well-regulated tarilT. giving
protection without encouraging monopoly, and
a oysteni of popular education su liberal Hint
ignorance aud illiteracy shall be ine xcuK:itle.
'these are the main questions upon which the
two great parties are now divided the I-iiio-crats
oppose unit the Republicans nliii in as to
each of the propositions we li,ie indued
WhUe fully appreciating the magnitude of
national issues, the Globe-Democrat will not be
unmindful of the Importance of question
which alfect the West, and especially the
State of Missouri. Among thee is immigra
tion. We shall do all we possibly can to en
courage Europeans seeking a home ou this
side ol the Atlantic to invest igate the claims ot
this great State its line climate, its fertile
soil, audits great mineral resources. Kvery
thtug is good here except political domination.
Bourbon Democracy is the foe of immigration
iu Missouri, as it always has been in Keutir.'ky
and in other State. A Republican victory in
the State would do more to encourage the best
class of immigrants to come within our borders
titan can be accomplished in any other way, or
through any other agency. The leaven Is work
ing, and we have faith In its success within a
few years. In the meantime we shall not for
est that while Republicanism is a help to im
migration, immigration is also a help to Repub
licanism. The thrifty farmers w( the Eastern
States who move West in pursuit of more
laud to meet the necessities of a growing fain
tly are not liourbon Democrats; and the iu
dustrious foreigners who come here for homos
Bnd fields will soon learn to choose rightly be
tween the twe parties.
-As a newspaper tlie Globe-Democrat will
hold the pre-eminence Which iti luis already
gained, it will present In all its editions a full

To determine U10 quality of silk
Take ten fibers of tlie filling in any
silk, nnd if on breaking they sliow a
feathery, dry and lack-luster condilion
diaculorjiig I lie, fintefcra iu handling,
you may Ht once be sure of the pres
ence of dye And artificial weighting.
Or take a. siuali portion of the fibers
between the thumb aud forefinger, and
very gently roll them over and over,
and you will soon detect the cum. min
eral, sonp and other ingredients of the
one, aim me absence or them in the
other." "A siihple but offective test of
purity is to burn a small quantity of
tbe fibers; pure silk vull irjstantly
crisp, leaving only a pure cbarceal ;
heavily-dyed silk will smoulder, leav
ing a yellow, greasy ash. If, on the
contrary, vou cannot break the strands
and they are of n natural luster and
urinrincy ana ran to discolor tbe fin
gers at the point of contract, you may
well be assured that vou have a nure
silk that is honest in its make and
durable in its wear.
How to Introduce People.
"I d dislike to introduce people to
each other."' said Kva to me one day
"Why, pray ?" I asked. "It seems to
me a very simple thing."
" Wei!, when I have it to do I stam
mer and blush, and feel so awkward, I
never know who should be mentioned
first, and I wish mjsslf out of the
"I think I can make it plain to you,"
I said. "You invite JJa el Tompkins
to spend an afternoon with you. She
lias never been at your house before,
and your mother lias never met her.
When you enter the sitting room, zU
you have to do is to say: 'Mother,
this is my friend Mabel ;' Mabel, my
mother.' If you wish to be more elab
orate, you may say to your aunt Lu
cy: 'Aunt Lucy, permit me to present
Miss Mabel Tompkins ; Miss Tompkins,
Mrs. Templeton.' I5ut w hile you in
troduce Mabel to your father, er the
minister, or an elderly gentleman,
naming the most distinguished person
age first, you present your brother, his
chum, and your cousin Fred to the
young lady, naming her first. Fix it
in your mind that among persons of
equal station the younger are intro
duced to the older, and that inferiors
in age, position or influence are pre
sented to superiors. Be very cordial
when, in youitbwn house, you are in
troduced to a guest, and offer your
hand. If away from home, a bow is.
commonly sufficient recognition ef an
introduction. Please in performing
au introduction, speak both names
with perfect distinctness, Harper's
Too many women are satisfied if their
work is 'ne:ir enough'.' to perfection.
They do not kno'.v how to be exact.
Says rt writer, discussing this lack on
thfj part of her sex: "Oik; of the great
est difficulties I had wlien beginning to
keep house was tlie utter impossibility
of" getting definite directions. How
often au ettrncst, almost despairing
question was met with this reply. Ob..
about this 3 ou must - use your own
judgment. IIow seldom in the coun
try, at least, can a dressmaker be found
whom wo may reasonably hope will
make both a des of your dress waist
alike, and both sleeves of the same
length. In every department of life wo
meet with it. How many mortifications
would a woman be spared did she but
cultivate the habit of seeing what she
looks at; I havo known women of more
than ordinary intelligence in certain
directions who. when laoip chimneys
wet o held in place by a screw, a very
simple arrangement, never even td
tempted to put n chimney on the lamp."
How can this len iency to inaccuracy
be aocounUid for? Woman was surely
not intruded for an aaiiaUe sort of in
capable. " ".' "
