Well, the neoolo turned the ro
cans out. and put tne populists in
power in both branches of the legisla
ture. Did they redeem their oft re
peated promises of economy and
reform? The record of that alliance
legislature shows that it was the rnoat i
llagranily extravagant body that ever
convened in tho state. That legisla

using the movement in a bold and des

therefor ?600. But that was not
enough for Pyrtlc, the reformer. He
niched (1,500 from tho peopla for
compiling the journal of tho senate, a

At Beatrice in the first joint discus-

Wyck, Judge Crounse said: --I am
not here to say anything against the
Farmers' alliance. For that organ

and am with them in their great
motto -Equal rights to alt aud special
privileges to none.' I do not come

a judge, a legislator and as a member
of congress to determine my fealty to
the cause of the peopie of Nebraska.

Tne speaker then paid a glowing
tribute to the men who came to Ne

had risen to a'diueuce by their energy
and iudustry. lie was glad Mr. Van
Wyck was worth 500. U00. He wished
it were $1,000. 000 if he had accumu
lated it honestly and without the aid
of a preemption iaw that permitted
him to bring an army of prcemptors
hero from which he later reaped a
munificent speculative benetit. If that
law was wrong Mr. Van Wyck should
have had it repealed when he was ia
the senate.
He paid a high compliment to Hon.
J. Sterling Morton, whom he (Judge
Crounse) had often met at tho state
fairs and horticultural and historical
societies. Ho had yet to meet Mr.
Van Wyck at any of these. If Vaa
