The most expressive motto coined for
the farmers alliance is : "Keep in the
middle of the road. ' ' The wayfaring
man on the political highway Is thus nd-
monhhcd neither to turn to the right
nor to the loft , but drtvo straight ahead
until the objective point lor which ho
has sot out is reached. In other words ,
ho must taken broad-giugo view of the
political field and endeavor with a sin
gleness of purpose and without diver
sion by side issues to right the wrongs
of our political system , and achieve the
reforms for which the embattled pro
ducers arc striving. Wo shall presently
see whether the conglomeration of dis
content which is about to bo launched
into the national campaign ns a now
political party can bo steered so ns to
keep in the middle of the road.
Is the leadership of the people's party
capable of formulating a broad platform
upon which the people , that is the
farmer , artisan , laborer , merchant and
professional man , can stand ?
Can they harmonixo the conflicting
elements that have como to Omaha to
inaugurate the political millennium
which will make all the people prosper
ous , happy and contented ; which will do
away with poverty and wealth , cancel
the mortgages on every farm , raise the
price of all tarm proJucts without rais
ing the cost of living to their chief con
sumers , the workinginen , cheapen farm
implements , furniture , clothing and
o\ery article the farmer has to buy with
out cutting down the wages of the me
chanic and laborer who is engaged in
producing these commodities1
Will they rise \p \ the magnitude of the
task which Henry George and Edward
Bellamy have laid out for thorn of
running the government without money ,
abolishing land ownership , making all
our farmers tenants and supplying all
our wants in the cheapest markets
of Kuropo and Asia whore wages
range froti 3 to 40 cents a aay , oven it
wo have to cloo every factory and
work shop , depopulate our cities and
force their surplus population to
migrate to other lands.
Will they keep in the middle of the
road so as to prevent a violent and dis
astrous financial disturbance that would
paraiyxo commerce by the unsettling of
values and prices , or will they seek to
'oist upon the country visionary schemes
) f bottomless financiering which would
loprecinto the purchasing power of our
, 'uiToticy , rob the wage-worker of his
scanty savings and Hood the country
with land currency which banuruptcd
the Argentine Republic ?
Will they keep in the middle of the
oad by demanding that congress and
; ho states shall regulate and control pub
ic carriers , or will they saddle the now
[ > arty with the contract to buy out all the
ailroads and increase the army of federal -
oral employes by 000,000 or 700,000 mon ?
Will they keep in the middle of the
road on class legislation or will they in
sist that the land owning clns303 shall
be given the privilege of 2 par cent a
year loans , while the landless class of
aborors which constitutes more than
inlf the population of the United States
ire remanded to the tender mercies of
the pawnbrokers at 3 per cent a month ?
Will they keep in the middle of the
road by knocking out the isms advo
cated by wild-eyed cranks , who want to
create national whisky shops and
olllcial bar tenders and bar maids , na
tional coal yards and other paternal
concerns under which the American
citi/on is to become an alinner at the
federal crib ?
Will they icoop in the middle of the
oad in troatin'g two-thirds of tlio people
of the United States who are ulllliatod
with the old political parties with com
mon decency or will they class every
body that does not profess their creed
as a minion of Wall street , a tool of
monopoly , a scoundrel or an idiot ?
At the recent mooting of the Conference -
once of Charities at Denver the subject
of a general law regulating interstate
migration was discussed , A number of
instances were cited by members of the
conference of the immigration into
tlioir states of pauporo and others re
quiring public care , and- the general
opinion was that there ought to bo
action by the federal government regu
lating tlio migration of persons in a con
dition to become a public charge.
It is undoubtedly a fact thnt many of
the Elates , and especially these of the
central west , suitor materially from hav
ing to take care of largo numbers of
these classes of people coming from
other states , principally , of course , from
the oast. This has boon the experience
of Minnesota , a delegate from which
cited a number of cases to show that the
experience of the slate had boon a hard
ono In taking care of the indigent and
insane who had como from other stales.
A representative from Ivans is siid that
Htato had felt the importation of foreign
children , homeless and orphaned , from
beyond the seas , and it id something of
a burden totako care of thorn , in view of
the fact that the state has about all it
can do to take care of its own needy
Other slitos reported moro or loss
trouble and expense arising from the
immigration of paupers and others who
have to bo cared for by the public. A
great many of these cases are from
states that do not make adequate pro
vision for their earo , ilndlng it cheaper
to send them adrift to prey upon the
public of Homo ether state. Ono of the
reports submitted to the conference said
that the extradition of paupers , idiots
and insane persons between different
plates has led to many serious abuses
and much needless exoonse. lOich
county , oily and town which is pre
vented by law from shifting the care ol
Its own poor upon any other locality in
the same slate is strongly tempted to
shift their cure upin the people of
neighboring states. The great cities
especially stiller from this cause , for the
reason that naupora are more apt to be
.sont to some great city , and the local
authorities are very willing to complj
in order to get rid of the expense o
caring for them. The fact that the in
terior slates have been Imposing pen
alties for bringing non-reslUont paupers
into the Htato is evidence that this practice
tico prevails.
This mutter unquoatlonublyprosontu i
problem of no small Importance rvnd in
terest It appears that for a quarter of
a century Massachusetts has boon seek
ing to bring about concurrent state legis
lation on the subject , and while it has
boon successful in establishing an under
standing among Homo of the Now Eng
land states , very little has boon accom
plished toward attaining what Is to bo
desired. Hence the preponderance of
opinion among these who hnvo given
this matter careful consideration is in
favor of action by congress , the idea
being a law creating an Interstate mi
gration commission , which would bo a
tribunal which the authorities of
different states , and the poor persons
themselves who are so frequently the
subjects of arbitrary removal , may pre
sent the facts of all deputed cases , while
such a commission might also exert a
great influence In the several states to
wards unifying the laws relative lo the
confinement of the insane and other
matters properly coming within Us pur-
Several bills for establishing postal
savings banks have boon presented in
the senate during the Fifty-first and
the present congress , all of which have
boon considered by the committee on
postotllces and post raids. Owing , it is
presumed , chiefly to the dlilloulty in
arriving at a conclusion as to the de
tails of a system , no report on this sub
ject has boon inado to the senate , and
it is hardly probable that ono will bo
made at the present session. Yet sen
ators must know , as was slated by
Senator Mitchell of Oregon in a speech
In the sonata a few days ago , that * if
there is any ono subject on which there
is moro favorable unanimity of opinion
among the great masses of the tolling
millions of the land , especially these
residing in the rural districts in the
.mall . cities , towns and hamlets it is
.hat . of postal savings banks , l-'or
ears congress has boon asked by this
lass of the people to establish savings
lopositorics in connection with the
lostolllcos , and it is a matter of surprise
lint such a popular demand should
lave boon so long disregarded.
The question of oat ibllshing postal
avings banks was first presented by
'ostmastcr General Crosswoll during
ho first ndministralion of President
jrant. Since then nearly every post-
mister general has earnestly urged the
propriety of creating such depositories ,
xnd none moro ably and forcibly than
ho present ho id of the postolllco do-
lartmont. In liis three annual ronorts
'ostmnstor ' General Wanamiker has
idvocated postal savings b inks with a
nest convincing array of facts , figures
ind arguments. But those earnest
recommendations , supported by the suc-
lossful oxnorionco with such banks in
jtroat Britain and other countries of
Europe , have apparently failed to im-
iross congress with the importance of
his subject , or if its importance is roal-
/.ed it must bo assumed that there are
ory potent influences at work in op-
jositlon to it. There can bo no reason-
iblo question regarding the practieabil-
ty of the plan , and as to the ullegod
ack of constitutional power that objoc-
ion lias few defenders whoso opinions
are worthy of serious consideration.
The establishment of postal savings
lanksln European countries has boon
Utendod with remarkable success. The
system was inaugurated first in Great
Jritnin thirty-one years ago. and it has
since boon adopted in ono form or an
other in Franco , Austria , Italy , Bol-
luin , Russia , Swouon , Hungary , the
Netherlands , Canada , and oven Japan
.t has had a remarkable development in
.he . United Kingdom. According to olll-
sial figures there were from the year
ISlil , when the system was established ,
to the end of the year 1890 , 113,000,000
deposits , amounting to $187,050,000 ! ,
the withdrawals during that period
boiog loss by $238,000,000 than the de
posits. At the close of the lust year
, here were in the United Kingdom of
jrcat Britain 10,000 separate postotllces
laving postal savings banks , and during
the year 1890 ever one-eighth of the
whole population of that kingdom had
accounts with these banks. Note
worthy progress has been made in al
other countries having the system , giv
ing irrefutable proof of tlio merits of
this plan for encouraging thrift among
the people.
The class of people who would derive
the greatest benefit from the establish
ment of postal savings banks are Ihoso
living in rural communities and the
small towns whore there are no private
banlcs , though a great many in the
larger towns and cities would doubtless
avail themselves of the postal deposit
ories from u fooling of greater security.
As wo have already observed , there is
small probability of any action on this
subject by congress at the present ses
sion , but there can bo no doubt of tlio
ultimate establishment of postal savings
banks in the United States.
When Henry M. Sl'i.iloy abandoned
African exploration to enter English
politics ho probably did not apprehend
that the latter would involve us much
sacrifice of personal comfort as the
former , but ho is facing mobs in North
Lambeth , whore ho is conducting n cam
paign for parliamentary lionow , which
seem to bo hardly loss savage than the
wild mon of the dark continent.
To people accustomed to the orderly
political gatherings of this country it
will sooni incredible that such a man as
Mr. Stanley and sucli a woman as his
wlfo , who accompanies him in his cam
paign work , should have boon subjected
to tlie abuse and even personal vlolonco
which they encountered the other day
at a mooting in Lambeth. After Mr.
Stanley had boon compelled to abandon
his olTort to speak to the mob his wife
took the platform , but the crowd jeered
at her until she also retired in dismay.
Then a fight was started near the
platform and another at the roar of the
hall , and the candidate and hid wife
started for the door , their tnipportors
fighting for a passage for them. The
mob then rushed out and swooped dowi
upon Mr. Stanley's carriage. The ladj
was hurriedly put Inside , but before her
husband could follow her the mobsol/ed
him , and It was with great difficulty
that ho toro himself away and got into
the can-luge. Ono of the doors was thoi
wrou-jhed oil , but the driver succeeded
n urging the horses into a gallop tn
spite of the infur.lntgd mon who were
trying to hold thubSiioads , while o her
wore endeavoring to got at the occur , ants
of the carriage. .Mr ! . Stanley became
lystorical and screaked repeatedly and
.he . scone was In bvory respect an oxolt-
ng ono. It nppomra that there were
ifty constables pr pnt , but they either
could not or wouUi not protect the ob-
eels of the mob's fury.
Ono of the cries that wont up from
.his crowd of Engllsh.oleolors was , "Go
back to America i" J'orhaps the enndl-
lato's American antorodonts may have
something to do with1 } the ugly feeling
against him , bufhls wlfo is an English-
voman and this fact alone , oven If Eng-
Ish political assemblies have no re
spect either for nvuihood or woman-
lood , ought to have stood between her
and the vlolonco of the mob/
It Is impossible to Imagine a body of
Vniorlean clti/.ons committing such an
outrage as this. In Ihls country there
s freedom of speech , tolerance of opin-
on and absolute protection of woman-
lood under all conditions. But the
English people do not cultivate the
unonltlos which prevail in America.
The refining and humanizing Influences
of our bettor civilization hnvo wrought
i public sentiment which renders such
cowardly and brutal exhibitions as that

Landscape Architect Cleveland of
Minneapolis , who has been employed by
.ho park commissioners to prepare plans
or Omaha's park- and boulevard system ,
says that the paoplo of Minneapolis
iavo found that parks and boulevards
greatly increase the value of adjacent
iroporty. The parlc commissioners
.here were Hooded with petitions asking
horn to accept lands as free gifts for
Mirk and boulevard purposes. In ono
case a boulevard three miles long was
donated and the property adjacent wa4
axed oy request of the owners them
selves for its improvement.
It has been the experience of every
city whore public parks and boulevards
iavo been established that they are of
great benefit In adding to tnoattractive-
loss , and thorQforo to the value of lands
ylng no'ar them or near to their ap-
iroachos. Whatever adds to the beauty
of the city Increases the market value
of property , and thus contributes to the
vo.ilthof the community. The im-
irovomont of all public grounds , and in
> articular the school ground" , may bo
nado a dirjct source of ad-
vanlagoto the people , to say nothing of
the educating and refining inlluoncos
exerted. It is a matter for congratula-
ion that the park and boulevard work
s under way , and that something is tex
x > done at once tbward improving the
unattractive school grounds of the city.

ing the rcsourcosand. natural growth of
Nebraska will be- found in this issue.
This number isi devoted to Buffalo
county and Kearney , its commercial
metropolis. Not many years ago Buffalo
county was , as its liamo implies , tlio
stamping ground of "tho bison and the
limiting ground of the Indian. Today
: t is one of the most fertile , densely set
tled counties in the slalc , with a pro
ductive capacity that can be only appre
ciated by a careful worusal of the facts
mid figures embodied in the description
mid the interview : ) with leading farmers
of that county , whoso standing gives
character to the information gathered.
[ t is gratifying to note that the people
of central and western Nebraska look
forward to the coining harvest with sat
isfaction and hopefulness.
NEIIKASKA is a sugar boot producing
state. If wo develop this industry so ns
to encourage capitalists to establish
moro sugar factories In this state such
as wo now have , as can readily bo done
within the next few years , wo ns a state
would entirely do away with the neces
sity of a sugar trust , as every pound of
relined sugar manufactured by the
Grand Islaild and Norfolk factories
moans that much loss sugar on which
the trust can levy a tax on the
people in the way of excessive prices.
From recent events wo notice that the
sugar trust is beginning to realize the
growth of a powerful competitor.
