THE WEALTH MAKERS. 8 WEALTH CONSIDERED (Continued from let page.) wealth is a wrong to society. It ia not right, normal, natural, or tolerable that ir uc umue rno. noen we itu uw:t and look over the history of the world, we see that great individual wealth al ways results in the poverty of the people. There is not a case in history of the de struction of a civilization in which the destruction has not come largely from social causes, the enormous wealth of the few and with it the inevitable accom paniment of the great poverty of the many. It was in the days of the Roman decay that the largest individual wealth was possessed. In the days of thenation al destruction, the people were richest, that is, the rich ones. While the empire was decaying there were millions of slaves and millions of people whose con dition was but little better than slavery. It was the same with the Persian civili zation and with the Egyptian civiliza tion. The puritan revolution was caused by the enormous wealth of the baronial classes. Right along, all history is teaching us this lesson: large individual wealth inevitably results in social de struction. The system that permits the acquirement of large individual fortunes is inconsistent witu tbe weii-Deing 01 society. The centralization of wealth is the cen- ; a. i : i : mi. 11 l. L : 1 J irunzaiiun n power, xue jvuiubuumub have power that so far transcends the power of the tzar that tbe latter is notn incr but child's nlav comnared with it. be cause the control not the destinies of one nation, but of many, ihe social well-being of Europe is in a large degree in the bands of those wbo have great tor- tunes. It is a menace against all pro gress that power should be centralized. The same law of progress that is against the centralization of political power in the hands of the few is infinitely stronger when it comes to placing the centraliza tion of wealth in the hands of a few. The philosophy of history will teach us that this is a law of history. It is not a jealousy, not a mere personal grievance through a superficial iaea ot tne proDiem of wealth, but it is a question of social well-being: a question of freedom. The whole well-being of the people depends upon it. Society must be so organized that the accumulation of wealth in the hands of a few shall become impossible. Civilization and great individual fortunes cannot continue; one of the two must meet with destruction. The two cannot go on together. Yet take the system of things in which we stand; two men may beside by sideaccumulatiug what we may call individual fortunes. The one may be making the work contribute to tbesocial well-being; the other may make it de structive to the well-being of society, Looking at these two, run side by side, it may be apparent that they are doing -the same thing. We can see no difference. We say Eos well Smith of the Century Company made a fortune, another man side by side with him built up a fortune too. What is the difference? It is diffi cult for us to get behind the apparent. . "We think we may be making a distinc tinn wirhnnt A HiffprpTlPfl. Tn Ttnnwxll Smith's work from the beginning to the end every man was actually profited by the accumulating of that fortune. Only in a nominal sense was the fortune bis. He built it up, that is true, but every man connected with it profited according to the upbuilding. There were instances in which he paid men three times, and at the end of the year it was found that the concern bad profited beyond what they had actually expected to get, beyond what they had asked. This extended to the elevator boy, to every mau in the es tablishment. It was a great fortune, but as a matter of fact, he personally shared . only relatively in it. lie managed it for the social well-being of this group of men. lie was no more personally profited by it than the president of a college gets personal profit by the building up of the institution. Here is another man, too, who has built up a fortune side by side with bim but with quite the opposite basis. It is difficult to understand. But .all men recognize that Mr. Smith's work was good for society, good everywhere. TIT . 1 1 . 1 we say in tne last analysis, was not tne fArtn ria Tfr. nraa Tf if: ia rrrrt that an individual shall do that for society then it is inevitably good that wealth shall be socially organized. The man who has power and will minister of it we say is rare, an exception. Then comes the old question, when we have good Czars Very well so far as it goes. But the principle is wrong. It is infinite ly better that the principle of democracy should be extended to the production and distribution of wealth. The Cum berland Paper Mills were built up slowly jpon the idea of building up the social 4ul-Deing. the manager was only as olie of his employes, living with them on ie same footing. We recognize that that is the true principle of society. As a matter ot fact wealth belongs to society. Wealth is produced by society. I am simply looking at the system in which we are all caught. There is no in dividual extrication except wechange the system of things. How is money made by investment in real estate? The man produces nothing. He simply sells prop erty after holding it for a few years. I am not condemning the man because he has done that. I am speaking of the system of things. Society produces that very money, has actually earned it. He did not earn it, he did not produce it. All wealth is produced by society, it is not produced individually. That system can only be a rational and just system which controls wealth and organizes wealth for the good of society. Individ ual wealth is inconsistent with the social well-being. It is not good for the man who has it. On the ground of justice and social well-being, it is wholly unjust, wholly wrong that individuals should Front by that which society produces. 6 is wholly wrong that- the English landlords should live in idleness; it is cer tainly morally wrong. Supposeeven the people lived comfortably, which they do not, it is wrong that a few should live in idleneHS. It is destructive to society, it takes from men the products of their toil. It robs the people of their actual liberties. It is politically destructive be cause it is morally wrong and unjust that a few should reap the toil of the many. The people are dependent upon wealth and this plunges thern into eco nomic despotism. Whether the despots be good or bad, the despotism is against pi progress of society and above all against the question as to whether the person is good or bad. It is something more than a progress of Christianity. Large wealth, in this system of things, cannot be accumulated and maintained in consistency with the clear preaching of ristianity. V c Stand by Your Colore" (Toe tinned from lit pa.) sewing together of a monkey's bead and a fish's tail to produce a mermaid. Last autumn the writer favored tbe nomination of Judge John 8. Robinson for member of congress in the Third Con gressional district. My reasous were these: First, I believed that his election nuder a combine was possible. Second, tie endorsed the Omaha platform though he opposed the sub-treasury plan, and I consider such a man preferable to Meikel john. Well, Judge Robinson failed of nomination by the fraction of a vote. John M. Devine was fairly and honestly nominated. He had agreed to accept the nomination, and could not honorably withdraw. The Populist convention had taken a position from which tbe com mittee could not recede. If the so-called silver Democrats bad not loved party more than silver they would have re nominated Devine. But they met in con vention and nominated Mr. Thomas, and when he declined they nominated Judge Hensley. The Democrats of the Third district elected Meiklejohn. Their excuse was, that Mr. Devine was a protectionist. Granting this to be as alleged, it was then reduced to a choice between two protectionists, one a friend, the other a foe of silver. What would any true friend of silver do under these circumstances? What right had the Democratic party to force the Populist party into an attitude on the tariff question? I supported Judge Robinson, and a year before the conven tion urged Mr. Devine to refuse thenomi- tion, which I felt certain would be tendered him. But when I beheld the conduct of the Democratic party I turn ed away disheartened. There are progressive men in the Demo cratic party, but the party itself, as a party, has nothing in common with Populists. We have a distinct and well defined policy. . Every man, woman and child in the land knowsorought to know what constitutes a Populist. But the Democratic party has been on both sides of every political question which has been before the American people during this century. In Maine in 1851 a Democratic house of representatives and a Democra tic senate passed a prohibitory liquor law, and this law was approved by a Democratic governor. A Democratic chief justice declared prohibition consti tutional. All this happened before the Republican party had a political exist ence. Yet in tbe Iowa campaigns of the past few years, we have heard all about the Democratic doctrine of "personal liberty." The Democrat Thomas Bentou was so much of a hard money crank that they called him "Old Bullion." The Dem ocrat George H. Pendleton, for an oppo site reason, was called "Young Green backs." In fact a man can advocate anything, and call it "good Democratic doctrine;" for he will have no difficulty in finding precedents, I say this, freely admitting that the Democratic party con tains men who are noble and trne to the interests of the people, such men as John T. Morgan and Benjamin R. Tillman. We have gained nothing by fusion, we will gain nothing by it. In the South we fused with Republicans till there we were classed as Republicans; in the North we have fused with the Democrats till they class us as Democrats, or what is worse, call us tbe tail of the Democratic kite. We never can succeed as a reform party except we stand upon principle. Beware of camp followers! Our Divine Master was plain spoken. He addressed a cer tain class of his disciples as follows: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, ye seek me, not because ye saw the miracles, but because ye did eat of the loaves, and were filled." Now, if there is nothing in this move ment, but to get into office with the help of Democratic voters, or to unite with Democrats to beat Republicans, let us disband at once. I never have advocated or believed in mechanical fusion as such. After the president had forced upon congress the repeal of the purchase clause of the Sher man act, it seemed highly important that we return as many silver men as possible, in order that the congressional elections might not be construed into an endorsement of the president's financial policy. The resolutions I offered before the state committee were some of them copied from resolutions I introduced in the Cedar county convention one year ago. It is my opinion that we must exercise great care in everything, even the -election of a school board. For example, there is a poison little text-book creeping into the curriculum of nearly every high school m the state. It is J. Lawrence Laughlin's Political Economy. Its author is the ablest advocate of the gold basis theory in the world today. Give me a child till heis passed school age, and I care not who has him afterwards. Look out for your school board. Don't let any one tell you tbe office is non partisan. You will hPar the same thing about judges this fall, believe it not. If John Adams had appointed a federal ist instead of John Marshall, for chief justice, would this country have been a nation today? I doubt it. The writer has no hard words for those who do not agree with him. But, God being my helper, I shall adhere to my opinions. The Democratic silver fizzle in Iowa the other day shows how much silver has to hope from Democracy. Stand by your colors, Wilbur F. Bryant. Elect Only Mature Populists Rushville, Neb,, May 6, 1895. Editor Wealth Makers: A turning point seems to have been lately and suddenly reached by Ne braska's new Populist governor, S. A. Holcomb. His recent appoint ment to offices of certain Demo crats is significant and is Quite naturally calling out some sharp criti cisms from a good many Populists, and causing considerable speculation from all. The question raised by the governor's action is: What does he mean? Is he a Populist, a Demo-Populist, a Democrat Independent, or what? His proceedings in question are certainly out of line with the principle s and policy of the People's party and can not fail to excite grave doubt in the minds of watchful and cou sistent Populists that Mr. Holcomb is what he was taken lor by the party which nominated him at Grand Island last summer. It is not denied that he is an able and good man. The Populist party, we are pleased to say, contains a largo number of such men, and it is desirable that all able and good men shall (if not already) become members thereof But being an "able," "smart" and good and great man in the ordinary sense of these terms and a member of the People's party does not, or should not, constitute-all tb requisites to recommend the manor men whom the party should select to high or low official positions. Ot coarse the nominee should be competent, by all means fully compe tent, be honorable and honest, and a member in good standing of the party nominating him. But in addition to these qualifications another should be exacted, otherwise tbe party, any party, and especially a new party, will go on ad infinitum with experiences such at naw confronts tbe People's party of Ne braska through Governor Holcomb. That other indisDensible Qualification demanded is maturity of conversion, maturkyot membership in the party; or, as a certain speaker pertinently expressed it. "Put no mau in nomination for, or in office, until he, as a convert, is dry behind the ears." The People's party offers most excellent opportunities for successful exploiting by professional office-seekers and unprincip led "smart," "brilliant," "tonguey" fel lows, political debauchees, adventurers and gamblers of every grade and hue. Such types generally fill the offices under old party reign and bid fair ere long to do the same thing under the new "re form" party unless a "new leaf" is promptly turned in the matter of making selections and nominations at its future conventions of the several grades. The writer was a delegate to and in the convention which uominated Mr. Hol comb for governor, and be had an im pression that a mistake was being com mitted by nominating him, because it is his conviction that it is unwise, impolitic and unjust to take, ifay almost snatch, as is too often done, any man from either of the old parties, l.e.,fresb and unfledged converts, no matter how many may be their other good points and in doing so shamelessly and shamefully ignore other men who possess equal ability and fit ness, unquestioned and unquestionable party integrity, besides the fact of long and faithful service, not only as veterans but frequently as originators and primal movers in the party, men without whose sagacity, wisdom, unselfishness, persist ent labors and unstinted sacrifices the said party could not have been born. This the Independent party did at Grand Island. It came near doing, or attemp ted to do, the same thing at the Omaha national convention in 1892. It has done it repeatedly, and so long as it con tinues to practice such gross injustice, such reprehensible wantonness and folly, it deserves to be disappointed, defeated and disgraced and the chances are that it will be. Some say: "One man is as good as another for official timber if he has been a convert but twenty-four hours." Another says he "would not run a time card against a convert in the People's party in the matter of making selections for office." Ou the same principle green and un seasoned timber is just as safe and suit able for wagons as dry and seasoned timber. Conversions are to be earnestly desired and all converts are entitled to the most respectful and considerate treatment and should receive no other, but the party can not afford to show an odious and invidious partiality by choosing fresh converts and refusing veterans. Set it down that the man who looks at this question in any other sense is not the man in whom to confide our trust either as a leader or a counselor. Set it down also that he who will ask or intrigue for an office before he gets his seat in the new party decently warm is not the man we should nominate. Remember always that a good many of the "intellectual giants" and political Solomons could'nt "see" anything in the People's party until it had grown, in spite of their opposition and ridicule, to controlling magnitude and power. Let the People's party absorb the old parties as soon as possible, meanwhile taking watchful care that some of the "converts" do not get into office and do us more harm as "friends" than they could as enemies. L. P. Cummins. The Wealtbmakers Must Co-operate Rusuville, Neb., May 7, 1895. Editor Wealth Makers: Now as to co-operation among the laboring people. I believe the workers must come to where they will co-operate one with another, and leave the drones without their support. The drones and the plunderers are organized for their own interest, for offensive and defensive warfare, and they stick together. Labor must learn from them to do the same and to shake the non-producers from their bacKs. I believe tbe Farmers Alliance should cut loose from all middle-men at once, and that it is one of the main thinirs to do. Then and not till then will the Alliance succeed, and people be eager to join it. If your society can help us to realize this state of things it will be mutually bene, ficial. To sum up, I believe that all wealth producers and useful members of society suouiu co-operate ana Keep to tnemseives what is produced. The unproductive class, such as bankers, lawyers, needless middlemen, etc., should be forced by fail ure of supplies into the productive ranks Respectfully yours, ' . W. F. Wasmund.

" That is, work to be done by the government is divided by the engineer into small contracts, which are number ed and any one desiring to work is as signed to one of them.

KA& m Mil mum The Baltimore Plan, now practically endorsed by President Cleveland, is attracting universal attention because it is based on tbe evident fact that the currency and banking systems of the country must be re formed. But is the Baltimore plan a reform? It gives the associated banks the power to expand the currency and relieve the country. It also gives them the power to contract it at will and create universal distress for their own private gain. It puts the credit of the government behind every bank note. It donates all but half of one per cent of the profit on the note issue to the banks, and it leaves plenty of opportunities for a Napoleon of Finance to wreck a bank and leave the government to pay the notes. It leaves the banks free to demand the highest interest that the several states will allow, and affords no relief to farmers and business men of moderate capital. Contrast with this The Hill Banking System. In "Money Found," an exceedingly valuable and instructive book published by Charles H. Kerr & Company of Chicago, and for sale at the office of this paper at 25 cents, Hon. Thos. . Hill proposes that the government open its own bank in every large town or county seat in the United States, pay 3 per cent on long time deposits, receive deposits subject to check without interest, and loan money at the uniform rate of 4 per cent to every one offering security worth double the amount of the loan. This plan is not an expense to the government, but a source of large revenue. It secures the government amply, which the Baltimore plan does not. It relieves the distress of the common people, which the Bal timore plan does not. It protects not only note-holders but depositors, who are un secured now and under the Baltimore plan would be still worse off. In a word,, the Baltimore plan is in the interest of the bankers, the Hill Banking System is in the interest, of the people.
