WE PEOPCSE A PLATF0BM- The People's Independent partj in convention assembled, recognizing changeless law of justice, binding alike upon all men. as obligator? upon men associated in business and government as upon individuals, and that this simple but comprehensive law must be obeyed to secure social order, peace and orosDarltv to all. ' declare their allegiance to the supreme law and law river, and their fixed and strenuous nnnnaltion to all class legislation. We declare class legislation to be essen tially anarchistic, destructl ve of rever ence for law. the cause of increasing in equalities, antagonisms, strikes and violence, leading in the near futun to terrible revolution; and that they who defend, secure or aid in securing special privileges, conferred bjr unjust, unequal statutes, are the real, the most danger our anarchists. And we declare further that these most injurious always acting anarchists, who combine to lift their will to plunder and enslave as God's will, are the political leaders and mani pulators of the two old parties under the shelter of whose unlawfal statutes monopolies have multiplied and grown, until the means of subsistence and in dependence have been taken entirely away from more than half, and in par tlal measure from nearly all the Ameri can people. , We declare that the right to land is as inalienable as the right to life and libertv. that it is a necessary part of that right, in fact; that all the earth contains of Divine provision for man, all material objects and working forces, must belong equally and without pur obase to all living individuals. We therefore call for the destruction of land monopoly and speculation, and for the publlo ownership or freedom of the natural stores of coal, oil, iron and other minerals, now monopolized. We declare that men should not only be secured In the right to produce freely by their labor, but also in the right to exchange their products or services without being compelled to pay des potic tribute to money and transporta tion kings; and that to secure the equitable exohange of services and free continuous employment it is necessary for the government to provide money nd transportation at cost, in other words, the government, local and gen eral, must conduct the banking business and own and operate the railroads. We declare for the municipal owner ship of street cars, and gas and electric plants for the publlo distribution of light heat and power; and the nationalization of the telephone and telegraph systems, that a monopoly of this electric service and of the news may not be left in a few bands, or with false teachers. We recognize the necessity of publlo employment for tens of thousands of worthy Nebraska citizens who have been brought to destitution by the crop-destroying drouths, and we de clare that they must be saved from beg gary and starvation by setting them at work upon the public roads, and upon state-surveyed, state-bulW, state-owned irrigation ditches, wherever water supplies can be utilized, payment for these publlo services to be made in county and state warrants, receivable for taxes. We are appalled to see the resources and capital of the country concentrat ing into few hands, and, by the same cause, that the independence of mil lions of American citizens has been lost to them. We consider it conclusive evidence that our so-called representa tive government, or government by parties, Is now an increasing failure, that corruption cannot be exoluded from delegated bodies of lawmakers and judges, and that all the people should, to save their liberties, demand that the lawmaking and vetoing power be re stored to' them. Indirect legislation must give way for direct legislation, or the party combinations, the lobbyists, the corporations, the present powerful monopolists, the fair-spoken office seekers and the corrupted courts will make legal merchandise of us all. We therefore demand, not la the Interest of party but of all the people, that our legislative candidates Individually and publicly pledge themselves to see that a resolution be Immediately Introduced at the beginning of the session and pushed through the next legislature submitting to the people a constitution al amendment which, carried, will give back to tho people tho power to make their own laws and to pass authorita tively upon any question of public coo corn they may at any time petition to, each Important law having to bo either Initiated by them or referred to thorn. Under this systoti) of direct legislation no law or reform which a majority favored could bo deferred, for parties, profowlonal politician and lobbyists would not to able to divide, conquer and plunder tho people. Wo thcrvlora urge all good cltlton, regardless of party, to join with us upon this plank to alect a legislature la NoriuUr which a 111 gtv back to tho pooplo, who aloao can t UusUid, tho reins of power, "rtuua Is still a considerable per oaatage of latar unemployed both la the K.at and Wast, and the outgoing stoawsrs to Kurttuo are carr)lag batik largo auuttwts to their native lands; a wilgrattua which, while largely stlmu lat4 by war lntvreg rakta, Is princi pally due to the Industrial depression." The old part demagogues have long been cultivating contentment in the minds of the wage-earners by telling them how much better off they are than the pauper laborers of Europe. But this can no longer be done. We have reached the Europe level and more, so that there is a movement for relief from American misery toward the pauper labor conditions of ' the old world. It will be well in the 1894 cam paign to jam this truth under the noses of the Republican campaign orators. The statement we have quoted above is from the financial report of The (N. Y.) Independent of July 26, 1804, Republican paper. Cut it out and paste it in your hat to show the Reps and their demagogue speakers. HOT ANT FU8I01I IN OURS. The question of open or convention fusion with any party or undivided fao tlon of a party baa never been support ed by straight influential Populists, by the strong trusted leaders of the party. The World-Herald scheme of last February was killed too dead to be thought of afterwards. But a fusion scheme to place Bryan in the U. S. Senate is still favored by certain men who have prominence in our party. When our state chairman publishes over his own signature in the old party dallies of the state that he would sup port such men aa Bryan and Ourley (Gurley is a Republican politician of Omaha) "no matter what ticket tbey were running on," and further says, "1 think that Mr. Bryan should be in the Populist party, but if he sees fit not to come to. us and to still fight along the ines that he hss in the past, I am perfectly willing, and I think that the majority of our party are willing, that f he and his friends will help us carry through our state and legislative ticket that we will make him our next United States Senator," this, we say, is rather startling to real Populists. Is it a fact that a majority of the Populists of this state, or those who call themselves Populists, will leave the party to elect Bryan, a Democrat, a man who will not come to ub? How big Is Mr. Br; an, pa, that 90,- 000 Populists In Nebraska, or a majority of them, will leave (?) their party to follow him? And what sort oi great ness is it in him which is ready to help elect Populists whose principles he does not subscribe to, if they will trade off enough votes to place him, a Democrat, n the United States Senate? We hope Mr. Bryan has thought better of it, but we understand his latest published plan was, to throw himself into the campaign to elect simply a free silver legislature, his eftort to be to get the free silver Democrats to support Populists candi dates where the Populist party leads numerically, and the Populists to leave their party and vote for Democrat candidates in districts that have con tained more Democratic voters, all thst be may get elected to the United States Senate. A man who will do this has no real party, principles, neither Populist nor Democratic, and he is not a man to look upon with favor, but to consider an enemy, a menace. If Democrats are honest they cannot thus support Populists. If Populists are honest they cannot thns support Democrats. There is a difference be tween the two parties which keeps them apart, Mr. Bryan himself being, apparently, in evldenoe. We have two or three kinds of people who favor the scheme of trading Popu list for Democratic votes. First, the place hunters, perfectly selfish smooth talking fellows who are in haste to get offloe, or appointments under ethers, and who by personal activity get to the front more or less. Confound them. They make us hot, with their efforts to join us to those who are not of us. The only thing to do with them is to give them back 'seats. Second, well-meaning people whose ideas are not clear. They think If a man Is honest it makes little or no difference what he believes, what political 'party he belongs with. Their votes count, but as leaders they are no good. Give theua back seats, too, Third, people of little faith in the power of Populist principles to attract the honest men of all parties to us. These last belong In the hospital, not on the battle field. Let us calmly look at the plan which Mr, Heaver and some others are work tug on, that of speaking 8 leaders to the Democratic leaders and saying to Hryan and his friends, "Help us and we will help you. Help us elect a I'opulWt legislature, and we will have our men turn in and elect a Deinocratlo United KtaW'S Senator." In tho first plsoo the Independents at a rul, are too Independent hi follow uch bellwethers vtiUi t$ party, Tho Won, Ik a ww can bo led out of the party by our leader! And tho p'an, known, will arouse great Indignation In our party agalntt such leaders, We would not buy oven Uryan to bo a IVpultst. Ilought Populist are not PopulUu. lie must come to u of hit own accord, Aaothar thtug. lie cannot do m any good II he li not a i'opuilst, not evn It w elevat him to tho I nlUd state tteuato. W twlleve there are a grvat many honest men in the llspublicaa parly, la fact wajf to think the ltpubil cans were ahout all go!. We want lo sue them oonverU'4 and attracted ton, jutl as much as we want to aoe cn tort 4 Deuioorsu, And the caly war for us to command the respect of the honest men of both old parties is to stand on our own platform, aad coquette with the leaders of neither. A BILL ABO JIM ALLEGORY Professor C. M. Mead, Doctor of Di vinity, one of the men who know every' thing that is known and tho whole mind of God besides, defends Pullman and condemns Debs and his striking brethren in an allegory which the edi tors of The Independent of New York think worth placing on the first page of their great religious family paper. The allegory condensed is as follows: Jim Smith was an orphan who worked for his living for Mr. Jones. Jones had a boy named Bill. Jim proposed one day that Bill should buy his knife for a aoiiar. mil sata it was not worth dollar to him. Jim insisted that it was, ana offered to leave It to referees to decide what he should pay for it, Bill declared hedldn't need the knife enough to pay a dollar for it and no referee could make him willing to pay that much for it. Jim thereupon would have nothing to ae witn mil, tho be continued to live in Jones' bouse. And he told the boys who were working for Brown, and tbey quit work and helped Jim torment Bill, ana oegan a reign oi terror in tne neigh borhood. They made so much trouble that Brown and two others conferred with Bill and urged him to have the matter arbitrated. But Bill replied that "he didn't want the knife more than a half dollar's worth; that he didn't see how referees could have any right to mace mm pay more tnaa ne could afford to pay; that, in fact, it was purely his own business whether he should buy tne knire or not, and that tne committee had better attend to their own boys in stead of coming to interfere with bis private affairs." "What an awful boy Bill was!" So says Mead, Professor of all human knowledge, Doctor of all Divinity, Dis penser of all moral truth. But let us explain. Pullman (Bill), understand, absolutely owns the earth and all the means of subsistence upon which and by use of which thousands of families must live BUI isn't an orphan. See? God it his father. But Jim (these thousands) has been disinherited, cast out, through the scheming of Bill and his favored crowd, The only way Jim can live is by being a slave (creating wealth) for Bill. BUI insists that be has a right to demand a certain amount of wealth out of Jim's labor product $600,000 'every three months besides a vast sum of value "in crement" which the land absorbs from the labor of Jim and to get this much out of Jim he compels him to double his work and pinches him to the starvation point in his living. . Jim endures this as long as be can, becauHe he has no home on earth to go to, and he is unable in his poverty to even change masters. But finally be gets so faint that he decides that he will ask for enough-food to live oa out of what be produces. Whereupon Bill gets en bis high mighty dignity and informs Jim that orphans have no rights, that it is his (Bill's) great goodness which has led him to provide work thus far to keep him alive. And off goes Bill to enjoy the fruits of Jim's toll, and leaves him locked out to starve. And Bill said to himself, the law is on my side, and if Jim gets desperate my soldiers will shoot him. The church is on my side, too, for I and my brother millionaires endow its theological semi naries out of the profits of Jim's labor. It doesn't preach any more against rich men and usurers and house and land monopolists, because they support it, largely. And we are putting a fence around everything that the poor need so as to force them to compete more and more for our favors, for places to work, and they will thus be our servants for ever. What a nice boy BUI was! WILL SOME MINISTER ANSWER? Will some eood minister of the gospel of Christ tell us why Moses Instituted tne ' year oi jaoueer" was ne patriot or anarcnlstr The above queries are sent in by a Des Moines, Iowa, subscriber, and we pass them on to the ministerial readers of Tub Wealth Makeks. The ques tion of man's Inalienable right to land Involved In the law concerning the 'year of jubilee ' Did the Lawgiver of the Hebrew unjustly, unwarrantably Interfere with individual liberties, with necessary freedom of contract? BE ON THE ALERT. We are pleased to ea in other states that the fusioti fellows are being at down on heavy and bard. The honest element among them seem ur.ablo to learn anything frnu tho past.

Certain ot tho ane lores are eg Ma talking "combination of all the forces that have similar ideas." If those forces have similar ideas there is but one plaoo for them, and that is in the party which represents those princi ples. v The Populist party must either enter this campaign unfettered by entangling alliances and , make a square fight upon t"o principles which it advocates. Every man nomi nated upon the ticket must be well grounded in its faith and loyalty to its principles. The Herald wishes to warn all who are true to the cause of populism to be on the alert to spot any attempt to "throw" tho party, and stamp them out as they wonld fire. It has been truly said that when a glorious victory lor the people is in sight fusion and its attendant confusion cannot be tolerated TO PREVENT PARTY CORRUPTION. We publish by request this week verbatim copy of one of the resolutions adopted by the national convention of the People's party. It reitds as follows: Resolved, That the People's Party at the outset, to secure permanent con trol of the party organization unaffected by the interests of those in publlo ser vice, does hereby in national convention assembled at Omaha, this 4th day of July, 1892, establish this ordinance as fundamental law of party organiza tion, viz., JNo person holding any offloe or position of profit, trust, or emolu- ment under the federal or any state or municipal government, including sena tors, congressmen, and members of the legislature state and local, shall be eligible to sit or vote in any convention of this party; and a copy of this ordi nance shall be annexed to every call for any luture convention ot the party. FOLLOW A O00D EXAMPLE. Gbamd Forks. N D., July 27. The Democratic state convention today voted in favor of fusion with the fopuusts, although the Populist convention re fused all offers of fusion. The platform indorses the Chicago platform of 1892; indorses Cleveland, especially in calling outVoops at Chicago; indoraes Senator Roach; declares for bimetallism and against monomentalllsm of either go'C or silver; demands changes in either the gold or silver d ' liar in order to keep the two metals on a parity; demands that all moody be issued by the govern ment; demands that tariff' for revenue only and the speedy passage of reform tariff iaws;ravors resubmission of prohi bition amendment to the constitution. The above action ought to drive some political senie into the heads of Populists here who believe fusion wise. If the Populists of Nebraska do as they did In North Dakota, the Democrats of Ne braska will be driven into supporting either the Populist or the Republican ticket, and the major part of them will come to us, with no tie-up, no under standing, no obligation on our part. Thb Boisb Sentinel, organ of the People's party of Idaho is firing broad sides at fusion. In Idaho the f usionists are trying to get the Populists to fuse with the Republican party. The Rep party in that state is in about the same condition that the Democratic party is In this state, and its leaders are there fore crazy to combine with the Popu lists. The Sentinel lniti last issue edi torially warned the Populists to "be ware of traitors," and branded as out right treason the proposition of a local 'opulist paper in Northern Idaho that the Populists nominate Sweet, the Re publican congressman. Lots of sense in the Populists of Idaho electing a Re publican congressman and the Populists here a Democrat, isn t there? How ong would the Populist' party exist by such plans to give its strength to its political enemies? This year the crops in the Missis- ilppi and Missouri valleys are cut off. Coming on top of the artificial famine caused by the Shylock class the suffer ing is certain to be almost universal among the workers, and the future is fearful to contemplate. The people may choose between surrendering their homes and liberties (those who have free homes) to the mortgage sharks, and demanding government credit as sistance and publlo employment. But f they demand the latter, they need to demand it by voting for it in the Peo ple's pa y, and electing It to power. Otherwise degradation, debt, despair and death are all that will be allowed them. MUST the people of Nebraska be de graded by charity and either starve or beg, because of legal and constitutional red tpe, made In the Interest of pri vate capitalists and corporations? In emergencies shall wo allow laws which were not msdo for the people or for emergencies to strangle us? The legis lature ought to bo called by dovernor Crounso to meet In extra session as early as October 1st to legislate for the salvation of tho drouth-stricken desti tute, who by ten of thou.nnJs are help Iuk (ilvo them publlo work some way, and nuke tha lawacooformlothe needs, tho emergency which we face. 1! jri" '),"' ' .. TtlK Massachusetts s'ale convention of tne People's party a loplcd without change the platform male by tho stale conference of orgaoued labor. The Ulnois PoputUts ad pted with one r- ceptl oa tho demands of the American ederalloa of l.a"or.

Mr. Kent is national lecturer of the American Federation of Labor. The Lincoln In dustrial Legion Monday night also en dorsed Mr. Kent for the same office or- candidacy, and passed another resolu tion condemning in severest terms fu sion or attempts at fusion with the old parties. Those advocating fusion war denounoed aa traitor to the People's party and cause. IT doesn't pay to be unfair in prima ries and conventions. It doesn't pay to pack a caucus and push through a slate for a reform party to endorse. It doesn't pay to trade off Independents; because, they wUl refuse to be delivered. You fellows with a little selfish scheme to get office by swapping . Influence and scheming together and pulling wires, when you show yourselves in a reform party, are an offense of the worst-smeU-ing kind to true honest men. And they spot you, remember that. You may ret on top and have your way for a day, but Derore you reach your object you will meet men whom you cannot manage. How do you, citizens of western Ne braska, with crops destroyed and no credit, and wives and little ones to feed feel about your rights? Have you no I t a a . ngnts out to oeg or starve? Don't vou feel that having done your le.el best that the government bs an obligation resting upon it to provide you witx work that will enable you to HveTJyf your own labor? When bang up against the wall few men believe in the utter loss'or exhaustion of their riffhts. or that tho obligation to furnish work for Al - Sits . . me wiumg aoes not rest upon the gov ernment. ' The Wealth Makers proposes a platform this week. We miarht have added to it many things whlJh we be lieve in, but we left them out in order to unite all eood citizen nn tha ta.t plank, the supreme political imoortanea of which all, we think, can see. With such a platform we believe we miffht draw many thousands of - m a vu the Republican, Democratic and Prohi bition parties. We ask all to read it and thoughtfully consider what may be its advantages over the conventional convention platform. Dodge Bbothkbs. proprietors of the Newburyport, Mass., shoe factory have compelled their employes to sign a con tract or agreement to WOrk at wairaa satisfactory to the employers, not to oln any strike, and not to leave service without two weeks' notice, all this under penalty of a floe of 25, which each is required to deposit with the firm. The firm pays seven per cent in terest on this deposit, but gives no . pledge not to discharge an employe T..VUWWV UV Wt . Owikg to a local holiday which all Lincoln people took for themselves, and the use of our printing force another half day to move part of our goods and fixtures from one room to another, we are short of our usual amount of type set matter this week. But some of what we offer is of more than usual Interest. We usually give very large measure, do our friends notice? The Arkansas Populist state conven tion, July 21st, was attended by 10,000 people. The Macon (Ga.) Telegraph asks, ' What does it mean'" It means that you can't oppress the people long without bding discovered. The people have been trying to locate the robbers a long time and now have them in sight, sure. The Populist partv is after them hot and bard. The old parties have long been tell ing the people that over-production is the cause of low prices and hard times. Therefore look now for prosperity in Nebraska and the great grain growing and stock raising states. We most now have prosperity, If over-production has been the cause of adversity, don't you see? i W. C. Batics of Carleton, Thayer county, Is euthuslastlo for the fo'ur horse wagon plan of attending the state con vention.
