I want to ask the oldest man in the room
when he has known the railroads of tin
country to tlourish and prosjier as to
day; when he has known capital to seel,
investment in railroads as to-dai ? Tlu
true answer is "never." When has hi
known the manufactories of the North.
Kast, Soiilh ntul West to lie in such n
iros(KTous condition ? The true unsvvei
is "never." When has he known for
tunes to lie so easily pacd? Never.
Now then I will ask another ipustion
When has lie known the tiriciitlure ol
the country to languish us it doc to
day ? The true answer is "never."
Agriculture tnvinu; the Imsis of nil indus
tries unit wcullh, this shows sonu tiling
ruinously wrony. Why, without farmers
civilization would iicrish. The railroads
would j;i'"v up :! urass and the ships
would rot at their docks. You clothe
mid feed the world. Now if it is true
that iiKiieiilluie is lauj;iiisliiiiK and that
the other indusiries are holding their
own, there is soiiielhiuu wrou. Now is
In 1 S,"o you owned seveniy ereeul. ol
the wealth anil paid eighty-live ier cent,
of the taxes. In 1 Silo you owned fitly
cr ccnl. of the wealth ami paid eihtv
seven sr cent, of the taxes. To-day you
have less than twenty-three sr cent, ol
the wealth and pay more than eighty
ier cent, of the taxes, from Is.'ii to
1HU0 nuricuUuic led manulaelures ten
)ier cent, ill increase of value of products
From 170 to Ismii niaiiiil'aetiiriiiL' led
ujjriculturc twenty-seven iereeiit. a dif
ference of thirty-seven iereeiit. 1 venture
the assertion that there arc men in this
audience who have owned k""I land;
honest, industrious farmers who attend
to their business nml who have worked
hard anil lived hard, who arc not worth
us much to-day at they were twenty
years (iro. I huvc found that the rain
crop ol Illinois cost the farmers $'.),H!K",.
000 more than It was worth after it was
harvested. Of 04,000,000 bushels of corn
taken at the New York price the value
lacked over 93,000,000 of paying the in
terest on the mortgages on the farms.
There must I a cuusc (or this. That is
what we are hunting for. I remenilier
very well having licit rd, sonic time past,
some one say that the fanners are too
lazy they don't work six days in the
week j tbey run around too much and are
extravagant. I want to say that
class ol men in the country work so hard
ami receive so little reward for their labor
as the average American farmer. 1 wanted
to know wdiat was the mutter and so I
went to Washington and consulted the
statistics of Mr. Dodge who has uerhu
the best facilities for gathering; them
any man in the country and his diaguo
sis of the case was "the want of proper
diversity of crops." 1 went to states
having the best facilities for a diversity of
crops and found farms selling for one
half the price paid for them eight years
ago. 1 went to the American Senate and
said surely Mr, Morrill, the distinguished
statesman, can give some good reason
for the change. That venerable gentle
man got up there in the face td' the whole
world and solemnly asserted that the
trouble was ovci i reduction. Mr. Mor
rill, unlortiiiiatelj fur him and his repu
laiiou as a statesman, juniied at a eon
elusion and looked at the exports, lie
thought that was a just measure of tin
production. Now is it so that this is tin
proier measure of the productions?
took the amount ol Hour exported and
divided it out among the (io.oiio.ono
jiersons in the I'uiled Slates and found
that if one ounce ami five-eighths more
was given to each one there would be
none to spare.
1 sav it is not u i crprod action but mi
Icreonsumpiion that is the matter
naul to state another tiling that is th
mosl serious phase, to my mind, of th
real situation: We had in 1S70, I K
more farms in this country, under
the sic ol tiny acres than in lssd; tin
arms over 1 ,0(MI acres in size had in that
time I.'hi per ccnl. We are resolving oui
jn'ople inlo iwo classes. They urc tin

I I use are the classes that arc the weak

ll iias been charged that it is a secret po

that we thank Cod that a lilierty-lo.'iug

ilh other bodies, numbering ill all .").
"mi.oiiii. it is going like ll tnlal wave
irom one end ol the country to the other
mil is last increasing. Tliey say wc are
iug into politics. I will discuss that
now. II is only tlic small try politician
who says i hat, and I will put some ijtieS'
lions to him.
Po. von know the dillcrciicc between
politics and partyism :
I in you know that it is the highest
Inly a man owes his country to uo into
polities uinl learn o!itical government.'
There is quite a dill'crence between that
ind partyism. A say that if the Alliance
was not lull of politics, 1 would not give
snap of mv linger for it. We teach pol
iiies ; tor how can a man vote intelligent
ly w lieu he does not know for what he is
iling. I will tell you how the Alliance
mlii Ii res with parly politics.
When you come to the Alliance door, il
hi haven banner, either democratic or
republican, vou urc required to lay il
lown before you can enter. We know
you not as a republican or democrat bin
is a brother American. The ollieereonies
to you when about to out and tells
you that you are about to take up an
obligation, ll is one '.hat will not cou
ilicl wilh your icrsonal or religious lite
in the least. II that lie true, laud it is, I
what have wc got to do with party n (fil
iations. We have nu more to do with
thai than wilh forcing you to Ik- either a
Baptist or n Methodist. We say to a
mail when he joins: "Ik-re arc our prin
ciples and we want you tosustaiit them."
Wc do not say how he is to do it. Who
has more right to go into politics than
the farmers ? Wc pay eighty ier cent, ot
the taxes ol the United States and lorin
filly-one kt cent, of the working (icople.
The fariuir is the man, who in times of
trouble, goes to the front and fights fur
The fanners lu Ilimcombc, fifteen years
ago, who owed $1,000 could bring oOO
bushels of wheat to town and pay his
debt. Now in takes l.oliO bushels, iust
three times as much. There is no dillcr
ciicc in the wheat. It is n difference in
the amount of money in circulation.
There is not one-seventh as much money
in circulation to-day as there wus five
years ago. Whose fault is it ? The fault
lies in the unjust and wicked liunncinl
system of the government. Fifteen years
ago there was $."0 per capita in circuln
tion anil now I do not believe that Mr.
Windom could prove that there is more
than $Ii per capita circulating. Every
man knows that congress could in forty-
eight hours pass a lull relieving this and
making agriculture more profitable. We
hit not going to ask congress for charity,
hut for simple justice, and we Intend to
have it. Knell party churges the other
with the blame. I sny the fault lies at
both doors. The fight in this country
is whether the dollar or the citizen Is to
be the ruler. The fight Is between cor
porate po'vers and combined cupital oil
the one side and the ieople on the other.
Wc went to congress with a bill that
was adopted with mature delilieratiou
by the farmers at St. Louis. We selected
Vance to introduce it. 1 wunt to correct
a wrong impression that lias gone out
about Senator Vance. 1 said to him;
"Wc want you to introduce the bill, but
wc do not wnnt you to commit yourself
to it in any way. We want the hill to
stand on its own merits." I asked him
to say that he introduced it by request.
Wc had no hope of passing the bill by
the present congress. What wc wanted
was to get it discussed. We have some
friends in that congress, but the controll
ing element lielongs completely to Wall
I said to the senate committee: "We
do not think this to be the liest thing for
the larmeis, but it is the best thing we
can devise. If youcan do better, do so,"
They say it is unconstitutional, but have
they given any arguments to prove it ?
The bonded warehouses have a man to
keep the key and attend to the whiskey
you carry to him. ou take your wins
key there and get a certificate of dcKsit
Vou can take this certificate and go to a
bank and sell it at a discount inline
iliatcly, nud can go and invest tin
money in whiskey again. The govern.
incut has KSllS.000,000 worth of these
eertiheatcs out now. Wc can get ahead
il Ihc government by making our grain
up into "original packages" and taking
it to the warehouses. It is all right fur
these to lie run for whiskey for the mon
ied lew and against the masses, but when
the farmer funics forward and says un
less you give rebel wc will sink they sue
it is unconstitutional.
My SK'eeh before the senatorial coin
iiiittec was prepared with great care and
the statements I made have remained
unchallenged. I say that if that iecch
contains the truth it is the dutv of every
man in congress to try to devise some
way of liettering the condition of tin
irmers. The man thntcomcs back from
congress and cannot sav. "I made an
honest, earnest effort for the relief of the
farmers," I will never supHirl again. If
it is not constitutional 1 rcsiccl them for
not vol iug, but 1 think he ought to pre
pare someiiiing mat is. I think as nu
Vlliauce man and not as a democrat or
republican. The farmers arc going to
isk why neither of these parties have
.'aiieuscd on this question, and arc goin
to have an answer. Thcv have caucused
iiicverything else, liowcvcruiiimporlntil
hut this bill has frightened them nearer
to death then any other ever did. The
tanners arc going to ask w hy they Imv
never caucused. I will answer for them.
They are. to use an old expression, lie-
t ween the devil and the deep sea. They
know that il they go into u caucus and
udorsc it, Wall street will sit down on
them, ami if thcv oppose it 4,0110,01111
irmers will sit down on them. In con
fess there arc four hundred ami seven
teen men, and of these but thirteen me
armersaml :iiiOare lawyers, 1 ask vou
if vou lielieve it is snfc to run the govern
incut 011 this onesided plan. If lawyers
ire not going to give us justice we will
send somebody that will.
