THE WEALTH MAKERS. r An Open Letter to tbe Independent Soldierv. of Nebraska. BT M. HOW. Comrades, their Is no use for our Re publican soldiers to disguise the fact, they hate us, not because we were not good joldiers and did our duty and pro tected "Old, Glory," but because we dart assert our manhood and renounce our allegiance to "king caucus" and the gang that has got us and this nation by the throat, and are trying to strangle as to death. For a quarter of a century we have been but passengers on the old hip of state, supposing, in our sweet Ignorance, that we were safe, and that 'our pilot would land us safely In a good harbor. For twenty-live years b(ti l branches of our Consress was over- C encampment had been asking "our sol d'er Republican" friends to give us i wheln.iogly Republican, and the nation- - " al service pension asked for bread and got a stone in the act of June, 1890. This infernal insult lo the true soldier was a 'oompromlse" end was given you and service pension bill defeated, the same as the "Sherman act" was passed to defeat a free coinage measure. The gold bugs of Wall Street are ar rayad agalrst you and tha "service oenslon bill." tbe same as they are azsinst the use of the money of the poor people. LI recollect when a bill was passed to f quallze bounties, and at the same sefr , sion a bill passed to increase the pay of every congressman aod senator and raise the pay of the president from 125,000 per year to 850,000. President Grant vetoed the "equalization of bounties'' and signed the one doubling his and congressmen's salaries. He gave as his excuse that the bill equal lzlng bounties would bankrupt this na tion; but he was not so solicitous about the national treasury when we were issuing bonds and contracting our cur rency and at the same time paying the disloyal bondholders two dollars while we gunholders were getting one dollar, We were denounced as disloyal to our flag and country when we cast off the shackles (and; declared that we would be free and vote it honest men that would represent us. Yea, when we even dared to cast our vote for James G Fields, an ex-confederate soldier, we . a rMIinlori ftnd tn.ntffH Athv nil r Tip. Voublicao soldiers. .Yes. at our last j f - state encampment we were insulted and our presence was not desired. I recol lect some comrade making a motion to censure Hoke JSmith and our old Ex Governor Thayer making an amend ment "to include All thote old soldiers who had voted lnuch a way as to have made it possible for him to be secretary of the Interior," meaning it for a direct slap at all of us who bad voted for m eoeral Weaver, And Thayer made a 7l t red hot Republican speech and insisted t t . j-j . on nis aoieuameot uuu ue nuticvuuucu by many of his kind. After they had abused us all they wanted to, the amend ment was withdrawn. These self-constituted advisers of ours and you will find them in every county this fall have forgotten some of the past hUtory of some of their ap pointments. Let's go back to the close of the war and then work up to the present time and see how much they love us. When the war closed we bad over 300,000 crippled union soldiers, many with arms; and legs off, with shattered constitutions, tramping over tie country (by the way, here is the first time we had tramps) looking" for work, having surrendered lucrative positions to others less loyal and patriotic, to go and defend the old flag (at $13 per month) but nevertheless, wekfind that gallant and magnanimous man who said to General Lee at Appomattox for his ( Lee 's) officers, to retainitheir side arms ani the men to take their horses home to raise a crop with, we Jflnd General Grant, a Republicanlpresldent, elected by the soldier votesof this nation, ap pointing such a rebel.murdererandcut- . throat as Col. Moseby, of guerrilla ,' fame in the Shanendoah Valley, as isul to China! And this In the face of the fact that the' north was full of able, lojal union soldiers, as well quail fled for this posi'lon. The same was done in tbe appointment of General Longstreet to an important position at New Orleans, and General Joe Johnson government commissioner of the Pa clfl railroad. len we come down to President llarr. ton's election. In 1889, when he was nominated and was anxious to carry vne soiuier vote or qis own eiaie, ne v sent for that legless soldier, Tanner, f X. ' and Van Dervoort of our state to stump J ( Indiana ami to guarantee the soldiers that the lWub!lotn jarty earn- Uj platform, "that the gratitude of the I ! ...I.- I. I... ..I .1 - I .. untiuu vuo uuiunuoii ui lue umua cannot be measured by laws, and la the presence of an oversowing trvaury, It would be a publlo scandal to d la for lho wninwi va'orou eTvlo preserved ,vi govern tent than what ere doing for the bondholder." Tanner and Van lWrvoort tarried Indiana on tats plank, and Tanner was tumt eotn mUstoncr of pensions, and the very moment h attempted to carry out the vrouitavs made by the Uspubllcan party Wall strvet demanded his head, and ol It came lt appoint d itauro, and I waal to quite a clipping from the Waohlagioa W, publUhed as an later vet with a prominent It-publlce at VxL torts of that clti: "CointnUlooer Raum In his last report made the state ment that he proposed during the en suing year to put out 3-70,000 certifi cates." He says, "Three days ago I saw a statement covering six months and it averaged 2,800 per week and last week there was Issued only 2,051. They have 2,050 employes, which makes it one pension certificate apiece for a week's work." Again he says, "We pounded Cleveland and Black, in the campaign of 1888, trom one end ef the country to the other regarding the operations of the pension question; we were particu larly forceful and were particularly ef fective on the point that General B ack's administration was rejecting 40 per cent, of tbe increase claims, but I have been told by a half dozen people who studied the figures that the present administration is rejecting 85 per cent of tbe increase claims. If it is not true, it is high time that the ad ministration entered a denial." The The soldiers of this state and Kansas know too well how hard it was to pro cure a pension until the organization of the People's party. It was no troible In Ohio and Indiana to get a pension. Why? Politically, very close. Why so hard in Nebraska and Kansas? Politically, all one sided. Soldiers, you recollect prior to our organization, two lines in any paper would contain all the pensions allowed, but what a change since '00! Borne days it would take a whole square to hold all the names. I recollect in the winter of 1889 the "Veteran Associa tion" of Nebraska met at Lincoln and H. C, Russell sent out a circular letter explaining the objects of the meeting. It is headed, "Attention; Coffee Coolers," and says: "I have received letters asking what is the object of this meeting?" and he says, "If I understand the object it Is for tbe purpose of tell ing Congress in plain, unadulterated Eoglish language, what we think, ex pect and demand in pension matters." Then he quotes the platform as follows: "Tbe gratitude of the nation to the de fender of this Union cannot be meas ured by laws," etc, etc., and says: "We supposed that the Republican party was in earnest when they adopt ed the above. If they were not, we whisper a word of warning to the ma were, and one object of the meeting is to jority in Congress." Further on he says, "This Congress says, or is about to say, that they can do no more for us than the two preceding ones did. We have asked for nothing but even-handed justice. We have been put off with eulogies long enough. We want bread. We wish to call the attention of the party in power (Rep.) to Daniel 6: 27, and more particularly to the little word Tekel;' then we can without fear of the rules and regulations refer them to that 'other fellow who had to quit business at the old stand and go out and eat grass with the oxen. One of ourfriends, Senator Frye, says: 'I warn you to be ware of the money power of this coun try." You see by this that the Repub lican soldiers had considerable to com plain about. I was in that convention. I recollect the ringing resolutions that were adopted on the pension business, that were not very complimentary to the Republicans in power. Comrades Russell, Thayer, Cook, Culver, Clark son, have you forgotten it? You did not ha.e the courage to censure Loch ran in your state encampment, but hit him over tbe head by censuring a man that does not ran the pension depart ment, anyjmore than Lamar did when Black was commissioner. You knew Loch ran came from a regiment that lost more men a greater per cent than any regiment in the volunteer ser vice. You dara not censure him. Yet we find as great a dissatisfaction during Harrison's and Raum's term. The American Tribune, published at Harrison's home, made this kind of a statement In May, 1892: "It Is said to be a fact that in the southern states of this Union over ninety-five per cent of the federal offices are held by ex-confederates or their relatives. The Home and Country of New York, one of the leading and most Influential military papers In the Union, in referring to the matter says, "We speak from knowl edge, aod to gather this data has -n-tailed considerable time. In one city we cou'd mention there are seme forty positions under tbe national govern ment the Incumbent of not one of which can wear the G. A. K. button. Yet there are two poets of the order there, and many if those worthy comrades who have asked for bread but were given a stone." Such la the history of the Republican party towards the soldier In the past, and too true ha this Un tniupllao-l In our own-ttaie. My mind wanders back to 'M and the appolnmenu made by UarrUon In this atato. General Vlfvjualn was minister tJ Mime foreign Man J. lie was as gallant and as loyal a Union soldteras ever has shra'hed a sord. He waa remove?, iJ an ei-ovn federate, C'apl.

II wa a man lo tni and reepoctrd by all, Irrw twethe cf oolitic. Hat Paddock miut have a plr fi that stripling , inuy jncann, ana Montgomery had to Governor inmate, that emtneil soldier you heard so much about during the campaign two years ago, selected a Democrat for World's Fair commis sioner, and a Democrat from Omaha to prosecute Hill; and even Hill thinks there are no legal lights in the Repub lican party, so he selects two Democrats to defend him. Crounse removes an old Union soldier that went from New Orleans to Pennsylvania and enlisted and rose from the ranks to captain of his company J. C. Crawford has been wounded six times I say your Republi can governor removed him as chief janitor at the state house and replaced him with a Democrat The Board of Public Lands and Buildings let out three old poor soldiers at the state house and retained in their places foreigners and civilians. Tbe Board of Transportation could not find a Republican shorthand writer and typewriter, so they, too, employed a Democrat. Our county judge Lansing could not find a Republican In Lancaster county qualified to fill tbe position as deputy, so be selects a Democrat who was chairman of county commissioners. Teeter, ex-commander of the G. A. B. of this state, out of some 000 old sol diers in Lincoln, could not find one of their number good enough for his clerk, so he, too, hires a Democrat. How they (Republican soldiers) do love us! I recollect tbe election of W, V. Allen as our United States senator, a gallant soldier, and how he was liked by them. Out of fifty-one Republican votes, forty one signed a pledge to vote for that arch traitor to this country during tbe war, J. Sterling Morton, in preference to a Union soldier! This caucus was held in tbe supreme court room just before Allen was elected, Think of it, soldiers of Nebraska, you can be called idiots, cranks, adarchlsts and traitors for voting and speaking your senti ments; but forty one (and many of them soldiers) sign a pledge to support a man that during the war was passed through the lines to Canada by the then Gov ernor Saunders, after he had taken an oath that he was a loyal citizen; and we hear of his name in a book published giving a history of the "Knights of the Golden Circle" in Indiana, as "J. Sterl ing Morton of Nebraska" no doubt our same loyal J, Sterling Morton of Ne braskaat present trying to run the Democratic party, the National Grange and several other national institutions. Independent soldiers of Nebraska, stand by your guns, Don't be hood winked. The grand old Republican party is through with yeu. They are using you only to pull chestnuts out of the fire for some "young Republican." Look at the Republican convention held at Lincoln July 3rd. Who were candidates and who were nominated? Col. Pace, a gallant soldier, who sacri flced himself and lost two brothers in the war, was a candidate. On the night before the convention tbe "Veteran Republican League," 340 (reputed) strong, met and endorsed "Comrade Pace" and vowed once more for the three-tbousandeth time to stand "shoulder to shoulder and elbow to elbow," as they had done from '61 to '(15, and support Pace. See the result! On the first ballot Pace got it where the chicken gets the ax. And the same soldiers that had resolved so hard the night before voted for a civilian. And the same thiag went along down the line, there being five soldier cat dl dates for representative, but all were defeated by civilians, some of them beardless boys not a soldier on the Lancaster delegations. Let me say that your gallant Tom Majors will go down before that gallant Jack MacColl of Canada, the same as Col. Pace went down before our friend John B. Wright. So 1 want to encourage you to be faith ful. We are right, and "right will pre vail.'' It may not be this fall, but do not be discouraged. The mills of the Gods gi lad slow, but sure. When you are approached by one of these self-ap pointed recruiting officers and he com mences to try to show you how disloyal you are for not supporting the G. O, P. ticket, as you have done for a quarter of a century, just give him a little past (but not forgotten) history.

Prospectus of the New Song Boolx for the People. The editor of The Wealth Makers has devoted his spare time during the last two years to the preparation of a book of songs such as la needed to edu cate, unite, arouse and Inspire the woalth makers of the world in their im pending conflict with the wealth takers. The battle before tu Is the battle of the ages, the Armageddon of prophecy, the last great oonfl let between greed and goodness. It is the organized brotherhood of right, against the legalized despotism of might. Truth has been spreading, love hat beea growing, fraternal organization has been extending; land the inereaslng op pression of monopoly power la in these closing years of the 19th century pre cipitating the final struggle. That it may be a peaceful political conflict we agitate and pray; but whether peaceful or otherwise it cannot be averted, tt cannot be longer delayed. The new song book is to be called 'Armaoeddow.'' The book will con tain about 70 songs for the times, over half of them new, and half of the red are nearly new aad famous, and the remainder are most carefully selected. Fifteen of the numbers are a series of songs sent out by the writer two yean ago in sheet music form, under the general title of "Songs of the People." The titles of the songs which Armageddon will contain are In part as follows. GET OFF THE EARTH. ARMAGEDDON. THE RALLYING SONG. TRUTH'S APPROACHING TRIUMPH IF I WERE A VOICE, No. 1, IF I WERE A VOICE, No. 2. HAYSEED IN HIS HAIR. SONS OF AMERICA. THAT HONEST DOLLAR. THE NINETY AND NINE (New). THE WEAKEST MUST GO TO THE WALL.

THE WORKERS' BATTLE HYMN OF FREEDOM. ' THE COAL BARON'S SONG. SONG OF THE MINERS. RIGHT SUALL REIGN. THE ONLY ROAD TO FREEDOM. BECAUSE nELOVE. JEANS PANTS A COMIN'. THE KINGDOM OF THE BEAST. The above named songs have most of them been set new music fa the author and compiler by a ball doien very excellent composers In Lincoln ant Chicago. Hut a dozen or so of the eongs have been written by the editor of Tut Waaltu Makers to be Joined to world celebrated tunes -French. German Austrian.
