THE WEALTH MAKERS. 5 if '4 I rr ) K will cost the committee nothing and ac complish more in maklnp votes than &dj thing else that they can set in motion. Don't forget this. The Populists demand the govern ment ownership of the railroads. The old parties prefer private ownership, political campaign boodle, legislative bribery and periodical anarchy.leadlng straight on to a most fearful class war and the wiping out of our government. Let us stop the game of the accursed office seekers who are leading us to des truction. Mb. Dawes, our traveling solicitor, sent us In a fine list of new subscribers as the result of his first half week work. Most of the subscribers were niArnhRtita and other business men in m, town. One was a banker. Everybody needs Thb Wealth Makers. IP people would only take notice that it 4s the rent, interest and dividend ' etreams which impoverish the workers and enrich the monopolists they would get disgusted over the tariff twaddle and tblnk a way out of the political and legislative entanglement. Chief Arthur's position of "strict non-interference" is the policy of the priest and the Levlte of Scripture. Kail way engineers who will be goided by such a corporation tool deserve to be ground beneath the wheels of capital. IT is worth an unmeasurable sum to bave one (and a reputed philanthro pist) of the millionaire autocrat class exposed under the national search-light until all the people have a chance to see the swinish, contemptible devilish character of the ruling rich. OCR Own Opinion is not, and The Public Journal takes Its place, at Has tings. A. Arthur Griffis is the editor of the new paper, and his first issue Is a splendid piece of work. We wish our young friend the success which his zeal and labor are sure to merit. The American Federation of Labor 750,000 strong, the Knights of Labor 250,000 strong, snd about all the think ers aud statesmen of the people's move ment demand the Initiative and Refer endum. Let everybody of every party who be lieves the people know enough to rule themselves, demand of our nextleglsla- tnre the Initiative and Referendum. Politicians alone will raise objections to it. Mr. Griffin this week retires from I the position of business manager of our He may. after resting awhile, represent us on the road, but has not yet perfected his plans. Mr. Edgerton's poem on The Tariff in the last Herald is the best history of that unending political fool racket that we have seen, and it will add to nis versifying reputation. We call all old soldiers attention to an open letter addressed to them by Uomrade Mart Howe, found on page 3 of this Issue. The Tricks or Political Hypocrites, Silver Creek, Neb., July 9, 1SG4. Editor Wealth Makers: The fight ib on. Parry supremacy in Nebraska willl bo fought for by the inch. Nothlog will be left undone that can be turned to advantage by the three leading parties. Already the skirmish ing has commenced, and we begin to see th hand that i& to be played by the old parties. As a starter, the Republi cans of Sliver Creek made use of Deco ration Dav. The (J. A. R. Post of Sliver Creek secured a speaker in the person of our banker, M. L. Rossiter, to dellvt-i the oration. Mr. liossiter is a public speaker of coueldvrublo note, and wo expected something pretty good. We got what might be termed a good camp fire talk, which In Itself was all right had the speaker stopped at that.

Thurston, the worst corporation henchman and political trickster in the state, as the grandest man on earth and just the man that ought to be honored with the nomina tion for president of the U. S. But the question that I intended to sk of the readers of The Wealth Makers, when I commenced this arti cle, was this (and this question is di rected to all friends of the reunion): what are we going to do about it? If that horde of Republican political shysters swoops down on the reunion again this year and begins to work the party racket, shall we succumb and cell It a Republican rally; or shall we load up our camp equipage and strike for home and stay there until the Republi can party learns to keep hands off? I think not. Thb Populist plan of fight ing, is to fight, and I would suggest that the state central committee of the Populist party arrange to have good speakers, either on the ground or with in reach at a moment's warning, and when the Republicans begin to work the party racket, challenge them to a discussion of the political issues of the day, and then if they persist in working the reunion for Republican influence, thea bring PopulUt speakers onto the grounds and let us have a triple fight; Populists, Republicans and Bryan Dem ocrats, and put off the reunion until another year. Now a little more about Silver Creek politics and then we close and start out with our little gun in search of game. Hon. W. F. Porter Honest Will Porter, as the chairman of the club called him In introducing him made a ringing speech in Silver Creek, Satur day, the 7th inst. He just simply out did himself and carried a full house right along with him. Will's a rip-roaring-buster. We are gaining ground in this neck of the woods. Brother Wooster of Alliance fame undertook to answer Porter In the evening. It was enough to make a brass monkey laugh to hear him. He did lots of talking but said nothing. OLD SOLDIER. P. S. I see W. F. Porter's name men tloned in connection with some of the state officers. That's all right, but It mutt be something better than has been suggested yet or you can't have him. We have use for him here, and must be well paid If we let him go.

Editor Wealth Makers: I have just completed a trip through the south part of the state and I find several of the members of the party do not kiow that they are expected to raise money at the primaries for the state committee. In order to win the coming campaign the committee must have money to ctrry on the campaign; and it is much better tbat the money be collected early than jnst before the campaign closes. Now I hope to see at least one dollar collected in each voting precinct at the time of the primaries are held, and the one dollar or more that is collected sent to the county con ventions and there all be put together and sent by the delegates to the state convention. In this way the committee will have something to open the cam paign immediately after the convention Now every precinct can raise one dol lar, and no precinct should fatl to send that much to the state convention. Respectfully, D. Clem Deaver. Change of Date of Sixth Congress ional Convention.

Governor Crounse insslts'a Christian gentleman; an Invited guest who de livered the address to our university students with the express understand ing that he should speak his mind on present conditions. Governor Crounse grossly insulted him and compared him to the most blatant anarchists of America, because he expressed doubts of the justice of our courts. How la God's name can any sane man help but question the in tegrity of judges who hold up laws against the greatest of corporations for ; ears at a stretch; who punish poor men for walking on the grass and re ceive wtih honor in the halls of con gress a man who confesses that he has lived in shameless adultery for years? How can anyone defend a system of just ice that will stop visitors from coming to see a man wno Is imprisoned without cat se, and allow m irderers all the com pany tbat comes. Who can say it is right to handcuff and send to prison a laboror for carrying a peace banner and at the same time to say or do Bothlig in regard to the Carnegie armor plate steal of millions of dollari? Does Gov ernor Crounse defend the mockery of justice In the Mosher case? Does he think that justice should be powerless to punish the Sugar Trust for acknowl edging debauchery of legislators? That all the state thieves of Nebraska should be allowed to Blip through the meshes of a system ol law that promptly im prisons a body of needy men with suf fering families for stealing a ride? Oh what a shameful spectacle a man blind ed and brutalized by bull fighting, lust, hate, or thirst for gold may make of himself. The most destitute laboring man in this unhappy country need not envy such a being when be hears the verdict of Heaven's justice, "Inasmuch as ye did it to the least of these my brethren, ye did it unto me." Hamil ton County Register. Change In Date of State Convention. Lincoln, Neb., June 15, 1894. Since the meeting of the state com mittee fixing the time ana locating the state convention, it was discovered that the 15th of August conflicts with the Grand Army reunion of the southeast ern Nebraske district, comprising some thirteen counties; and of which W. G. Swan, oae of our state committee, is commander. Their date is from the 13th to the 17th of August. Out of our respect for the old.soldiers, and in con sideration of the fact that a very large number of them who belong to our party desire to attend both meetings, it was decided that it would be best to delay our state convention until after the reunion. It is unfortunate that the fact was not known at the time of the calling of the convention, but inasmuch as it was not, it was considered of tufft cient importance to submit a proposi tion to the members of the state central committee asking their opinion as to a change. Out of seventy-two votes sent in re ply by members of the committee, fifty six were unqualifiedly in favor of the change, eleven were conditionally in favor of it and only five were positively opposed to it. By a unanimous vote of the state ex ecutive committee it was therefore decided to change the date of the con vention to Friday, August 24 th, at 10 o'clock, a. m. at Grand Island, Nebr.

Co , Irrigated Farm Lands -m FERTILE SAN LUIS THE SAN LUI8 VALLEY, COLORADO, is a stretch of level plain ibout as large as tne State of Connecticut, lying between surrounding ranges of lofty mountains and watered by the Illo Grande River and a score or more t f small tributary streams. It was the bottom of a great sea, whose deposits have made a fertile soil on an average more than ten feet deep The mountains are covered with great deposits of snow, whioh melt and furnish the irrigating canals with water for the farmer' crops. The Climate is Unrivaled. Almost perpetual sunshine, and the elevation of about 7,000 feet dispels all malaria, nor are such pests as chinch bugs, weevil, etc., found there, flow Ing artesian wells are secured at a depth, on an averege, of about 100 feet, and at a cost of about 125.00 each. Such is tbe flow that they aro being .util ized for irrigating the yards, garden and vegetaole crops. Tbe pressure is sufficient to carry the water, which is pure, all through the farmers' dwell ings. Irrigation. Already several thousand miles of large and rmall irrigating canals have been built and several hundred thousand acres of lands made available for farming operations. Irrigation is an insurance against failure of crops, be bause success is a question only of the proper application of water to them The loss of a single corn or wheat crop in Nebraska, for Instanoe, would more than equal the cost of irrigating canals to cover the ntlre state, so lmpo tant is the certainty of a full crop retnrn to any agricultural state The San Luis Valley will grow Spring wheat, oats, barley, peas, hops, beans, potatoes, vegetables and all kinds of small fruits and many of the hardier varieties of apples, pears and all kinds of cherries. In the yield ol all these products it hat ncter been turpassdd by any other ac tion on this continent. , Forty Aores Enough Land. Forty acres is enough land for the farmer of ordinary means snd helo Be. tides the certainty of return, the yield, under the conditions of prooer lrrl. gatlon, will average far more than the 100-acre farms in the MIsTla.W and Missouri Valleys, and the outlay for machinery, farming stock pur chase money, taxes, etc., ar proportionately less. There are a hundred thousand acres of such land located In tbe very heart of the San Luis Val ley, all within six miles of the Denver Si Hlo Grande Railroad, convenient markets and shipping stations, for sale at $15 00 per acre Most of these lands are lenoed and have been under cultivation and in maov ios'aBoos have wells and sme buildings, everything ready to proceed at 'once to be gin farming.
