Mr. Gaffln Is a man ol courie QUI dtsnoaltion. clear bead in matters pertaining to business, always consider ate and steadfast to true principles. Knowing the high esteem his person al acquaintances cherish for him and being now situated in a Populist strong hold where they are only acquainted with him through his official acts, I am pleased to bear bis name always spoken with admiration; and It makes one think we have in him our strongest nan for Governor. Yeurs for the Omaha platform, with Speaker Gaffln astride, and we will land him In the executive cbalr or tne state f Nebraska. The Hon. O.

SAUNiKR9 Co., April 10, 1894, Editor Wealth Makers and All Loyal People's Independent Party Men: If you are correct in your profession that you wish success at the polls in the coining fall election, just take your spectacles of prejudices and individual interests off for a few moments and read this ticket; then cut it out and go to work to secure its nomination, for the following reasons: First. They are all clean mn. Second. They have the ability to step on the rostrum and defend the principles of the People's Independent party agalnbt any and all comers. Third, No charge can be sustained that they are eleventh hour men. Fourth. They represent the two elements whom a few men have aimed to bring into and continue in a factional strife. While the factionalism only ex isted in their own brains, wrapped by aelflshness, yet It has gone forth and it U nnr dutr tn onna and forever sauoloh it by earnest, honest action. A dozen tickets can be formed with equal, pure men, with talents acknowl edged and with a loyalty to our princi ples proved by as many years earnest work ai these men. But I do doubt very much whether a ticket as a whole 'oan be made of men who are so well and favorably known in their own counties and throughout the State and who so fairly represent the different portions of the population as the eight men be low named: For governor, J. V. Wolfe, Lancaster -county; lieutenant governor, W. A. Poyntcr, Boone; secretary of state, Wm. V. Porter, Merrick; auditor, Logan Mo Reynolds, CUy; attorney general, Joseph Edgerton, Hall; commissioner public land and buildings , H. B. Miller, Wayne: treasurer, John H. Powers, Hitchcock; superintendent public In struction, A. d'Allemand, Furnas. Not one of the list but is an earnest wisher for success. X. Y. Z. Porter of Merrick Heard From. Clarks, Neb., April 13, 1894. editor Wealth M akers: I am very much pleased with your in vitation to your readers, to exobaage Joss of, "Who are the most available candidates for the various oftloes to be filled at the coming election." It seems to me that it Is the only way to have -an intelligent understanding of our candidates, and to look them over care fully, before we meet la convention, and decide If possible, who are the best men, that will make the strongest nwe. In my judgment, the first qualifications to be sought m selecting men for any office, are ability to fill suck office -creditably, coupled with unquestioned integrity, and lat, but not least, with backbone enough to perform the duties of said office fearlessly, tegardlrss of -what others may say, We have an abundance of (tutorial to elect from fur evry effice to be tilled. My personal choice for governor would be Speaker tiaMo. I believe him to be just such a nan as I have desclbed, hove. Besides, he it a practical farmer and ouly once la the history of Nebras ka have we had an opporluslty to vet for a farmer for governor? I believe it is time !or the cla that pays 'A per cent, of all our tuet to be represented la the executive department. Mr, Csffla is well known throughout the tale, and no one questions his honty and ablll'y. Mayor Wslr ot Lincoln has bo talked of wMuldtrably, heeauie mple have argued that the cities are what deteau us, and thai Mr Wslr can tU heavier vote there, than any other maa. Now let us look squarely at this ques tion and see If this Is dealing fairly with the party. It is an undisputed fact that more than 75 per cent, of our votes come from the oountry,and to slap them in the face by virtually saying that there are not brains enough among tbem to fill any and every offio? If neces sary, it seems to me is not good politics (not that I wish to claim M the offices for the farmers, but I do insist that they and all other classes, shall be represent ed in proportion to their numbers). In 1892 VanWyck was nominated for governor, because it wse claimed that he would poll 10,000 more votes in the cltiet, than any farmer could. What was the result? Simply this: For every vote he gained in the cities, be lost two for the whole ticket, in the country And while I have the highest regard for Mayor Weir, and have nothing but rood to say of bim. as a man (and If he is nominated he will receive my heart iest support), to claim that because Mr Weir has twlco been elected Mayor of a strong Republican city, that he can carry the same vote for governor Is in tuy judgment not logical. As tbecauBes which led to Mr, Weir's election as mayor, were entirely ainieroni irom what they would be if bo was runnlog for governor. For second place on the ticket give us Senator Stewart of Sioux county, or any other equally gooa man. tor auditor of public accounts I think tbo best qualified Man we have for that place is A, J, Gustln of Kearney, This will give the business men one of tho best places on the ticket. For secretary of state, we have no man better quail fled than Representative Rhodes of Valley county, Then let tho northeast district find a competent man who is well known for commisiioner of public lands and buildings and the southwest a good man for treasurer, give Omaha or the 2nd district, state superintendent If they have a man well qualified for the place; and we can make a fight that will win. If this ticket don't suit the readers of The Wealth Makers, (as far as It goes) let some of them name bettor one, and 1 can assure tbem that Porter of Merrick, will pull eff his coat and work for tbe success of tVe whole ticket, if it is made up of clean, able men. lours for victory. W, F, Porter, Tested Honest KMclent Men Wanted KCSHVILLE, Neb., April 9, 1894, Editor Wealth Makers: By way of responding to your recent Invitation to suggest names of men for nomination on our state ticket this fall, and seeing in your last quite an array of letters from different correspondents proposing many different persons for the honors to be oonfered, prompts me to offer a small contribution along this line, as follows: While I have, at this time, no parti cular man to suggest for this or that office, I can readily agree that the man or men selected to head our ticket, who ever they may prove to be, should be as well known for what they have already done, as for what it is supposed or be lieved they are capable, or inclined, or willing, or will promise to do. With all due respect for the sincerity, loyalty and competency of every con vert, so-called in the party, observation compels me in truth to say that relia bility, in these matters, is too often sacrificed for availability. An old and reliable veteran Is frequently suppress ed or ignored for tbe sake of an "avail able" recruit. This is the unwisdom of especially new) political parties the folly of the "people." It is on the prin ciple of a man, or woman, solectlng a marital companion from among fresh acquaintances, or total strangers. Sometimes It ends well, but generally not. It is a sort of leaping in the dark, and it would seem that the people bv this time ought to know that it is best, nay, imperative, to nominate (and vote for) the tried and known, Instead ot the untried and unknown. It Is agreed all around that official proferment is not bestowed by the pub- lo merely for the purpose of oonferrlng honor and emolument or charity on the one individual, or to withhold the same from any other individual. Then If it be known that such or such 'a person posoes In a greater degree, the neces sary qualifications for a certain office than a certain other person, and that his election would more certainly con duce t the public welfare, then the former ought to bo tbe nominee re gardless of location, of enmities of Jealou sies of "unpopularity," etc., which, un fortunately for us, as a self governing (V) people, have tnsny times formerly been the only things, and will, If con tinued, retire to tho rear many of our vny best men. All river have thvlr shallow ttlfccet, end every man has some (suitor faults. Friendship Is a noble thing and its promptings are correct and legitimate, but they should not be permilUd to alone say the voter lu tbe matter of making his choice when the result thereof would be t't place a bad man In stead of a good one la a position of decisive ltirtuBei and power, At all evnU vital tnViU are do Mn4tng and It Is to Ui sincerely hod that the I'opuiUt nora! nations soon Ui be made ot our standard heart rs tn the ensuing eantpalga will be made on ao couatof what the men so aomtaa J areiwra tube rather than oa hel the; are are hliinJ to :, Such courie Is but the part of wisdom, doing only simple justice eto veterans and affording no cause for reasonable com plaint for other meritorious aspirants I remain yourr in favor ot the man, though he be my persona! enemy, if he would manifestly make the most honest an efficient officer. L. P. Cummins What Logan McReynolds Advisee Fairfield, Neb., April 12, 1894 Editor Wealth Makers: Your editorial of March 22nd. under the beading, "Let os Exchange Views, is very timely indeed. It is very lm portant that when our next state con vention meet the delegates should have at leant some idea of who should be msde our standard boaaers, ad lu no other way can they arrive at proper con elusions, or select candidates who will give satisfaction to the people. I notice In the two last issues of The Wealth Makers quite a number of letters putting forward the names of some of tbe old wheel horses in the cause, lb ore will bo no mistake mudc when the ticket is made up of such men as Powers, (iamn, Porter, l'oynter, Dale, and a host of others who stand frjually as well at (hey, would say for governor J.

B careful. Let every man do his duty." L. McRrynoldh. At the end of a business letter II. F, FllJmore of Hemlngford, Neb., writes: 'No fusion for Box Butte county, For governor, w, A.

The best plan is to got a quorum (7) of Alliance members; apply to the state organizer for the necessary blanks (wbeie there is no local organizer near) and when the blanks are received have any physician you may select (provided he is a graduate of some medical college) make the necessary examination, and fill out the blanks. These papers, when properly made out, should be forwarded to W. F. Wright, box ir, Bethany, Neb , with 93.00 for each ap plication. After these papers have been examined, those who have been aocepted will be notified, and there will then be due the balance of the entry fee, ranging from 84.00 to $4.50, ac cording to age. This will be due as soon as the applicant ls-acoeptid; but arrangements can be made, if necessary, to pay this balance ot tho fee later In the year, but the $3.00 should accompany the application. In case a person is rejected, this 83.00 will be promptly refunded. In case one or any number leas than seven in a community wish to join, they can proceed as in case of a quorum, but they will be known as isolated members, and when an assessment is made thev will pay direct to the National scrlbo until such time as a local lodge can be formed, after which tbey will report through their local secretary. What will it cost to meet the assess ments? From 10.00 to 810 00 per year, usually, on a 81,000 policy. is It surer Toe Alliance Aid Degree has received the endorsement of the National Alliance and Industrial Union, and is recommended by that order as being perfectly safe.
