Babstovt, Sept. I. Alth.ngi.the day
ot the F. M. B A. picnic opened
threatening, nevertheless it lurcicd
out beautifnl, and the Plow City band
commenced playing soul stirring airs
about 10:30 J. O. Oiborne called tbe
meeting to order and csiied upon Iter.
Baker to open the proceedings by prayer,
after which there was Rioting ot "Tbe
Farmers' Song." with solo and chorus.
Dr. Reider was introduced and nude a
shoft interegticg speech, recommending
that the farmers keep aloof from politics
and remain non partisan.
Music by tbe band followed, and Rib
ert Bennett, of Rock Island, was intro
duced, wbosaid tbat he was not an alli
ance or an F. M. B. A nun, but he was
with them in sentiment. He considered
the farmerV movement very oppottuce
and accessary , and drifted itum to sued
by their rc&niza-ion. His whole sK-ech
was in dtftnge of a proteC'ive tariff, and
was cons dered entirtlv out of place at an
F. M. ft A. picnic. Tne Glee club men
sans ''Marching From Bondage," and
there was adjournment for dinner.
Aftrr dintn-r the rj.h rins waa enter

tbe band, after which a soag was given,
entitled, "Uocl Snm's HoVses." IS. H.
Keaapster, of Whites'de county, being
introduced, said: "This gathering has
come mostly for recreation and not to
introduce special partisanship." He. ttou
dwelt largely upon the great iojastice
perpetrated upon Ihe people in the Brat
place by the large (.rants ef lands to rail
road companies and in tbe next place in
our goveramenl allowing these great
monopolies t' enrich themselves by waN
6'l tu.:.' sii4 bjSw Use a CPaig!S ul-
rageous rates for freight. The farmers
have no idea of raising the price to tbe
consumer, but rather of lessening tbe
price of fsrmers'supp'.ies, and if our leg
islators will not legitlate for the farmers'
interests in these matters, we will give
them to understand that we will form
and organise a new ptrty.
Music by the band followed. Hon.
H. . Taubencck of Clark county, on be
ing introduced, said that altheugh he
was an F. M. B. A. be was also a mem
ber of the grange aadothtrorganizuioa
and lie wished it understood, ibat he
alone was responsible for tbat which he
should do. He did not mink that we
were burdened with a wrong tbat couid
not be remedied at the ballot box Tbe
farmers are not protected in their rights
as other cKsses are. Tbe greatest ques
tion that stares every American in tbe
fare tixlsy i, how to prevent tbe great
centralizition of wealth. We nrepra'1
ually coming down to tne two clashes. the
one immensly rich, the otUe correspond
ingly poor. What was France previously
to the great revolution, but simply a
great aristocrasy, and tbe masses poor?
It is said we as a nation are becoming
taatlji rich, Liu llc uutsliuu is, whu has
got tbe riche-? Whose vaults contain it?
He then quoted from ex Senator IngalU'
statistics, showing who bad got the
wealth. We are accustomed to speak of
our country as tbe home of the brave and
land of the free, but it will soon be, if this
state of things continues, tbe land of the
rich and the home of the slave. What is
the condition of agriculture today, all
brongbt about by class legislation, but
simply a tradual impoverishing of tbe
farmers- And he quoted statistics which
substantiated his statement.
The average farm of the United Stales
is 131 acres and tbe average gross income
from that farm is f 552. And he would
like to see tbe average city politician un
dertake to lift a mortgage with such an
income. In meeting tbe argument that
overproduction has been the cause of low
prices for farm prod acts, he read sta
tistics showing tbat there is not any more
raised today then in 1880 according to the
number of population. He claimed that
insufficiency of money bad more to do
with the deprwisina of agriculture than
anything else, and in comparison with
tbe tariff sinks into utter insignificance.
He quoted from eminent m n eoowicg
that the price ol property and labor will
rise and fall witli lue volume of currency.
Eight per cent of tbe business of tbe
country is done with money, 92 per cent
with paper, upon wnicn interest nas to
paid, the burden of which falls upon ag
riculture. Tbe remedy for our depressed
condition is, incieasc tbe volume of cui
rencv and the free cdinage of silver, and
cheaper money and repeal tbe banking
law. ana then let the government loan
money to tbe farmers at low rales of in
terest, aud when yon benefit tbe farmers
this way you confer a benefit upon every
other class. tie concluded an elonuent
well-delivered speech by saying that the
farmtrs must work oat their own salve
tion at the ballot-box.
Mr. Taubeneck was well received and
