Our renders iu Lincoln will bo amply re paid it they drop in and hour the papers and discussions given at the A. 0. U. W. hall, 1114 0 St., Sunday evenings. Live subjects are diseussod, and there is no tack of Ideas and information. This St. Louis Globe-Democrat avers that: "History will say. of Cleveland that he hunted more ducks and disgusted more Democrats than any other presi dent." v More bonds and more tariff taxes are the medicine Congress is giving us. The sweat screws and blood letting are con tinued. Any cessation in the use of these would destroy our constitution. Under Btand? Tun "sober second thought takes its turn with the President's message," says the Journal.' Yes, the class whom talk of war does not intoxicate and who have no political or financial axes (bonds) to grind are now getting the floor. One thousand delegates were present at Nebraska's irrigation convention at Sidney. Many resolutions were adopted, The officers elected are A. G. Wolfenbai gerof Lincoln president, J. L. Mclutosh socretary, Joseph Oberfelder treasurer. Ox.VAitD is in Washington, "to look over the tariff sitnation so far as it affects the beet sugar iuterests." Farm ers, mechanics, clerks and laborers never go to Washington to guard their inter eststhe place where the poor are most plundered. s W. D. IIowells is being viciously crit icised by the friends of plutocracy and individualism. But he is winning the love and the admiration of the oppress ed. His recent articles on Liberty and Equality in the Forum and Cosmopolitan should be read by all men. " The Outlook says it is estimated that the public losses from the war agitation through the depreciation of American securities already amounts to between $300,000,000 and $500,000,000, while the general injury inflicted on commerce and business is inestimable. Theue are still a lot of people who are fooled by that alleged scientific explana tion and justification of prices and con' ditions, the law, so-called, o supply and demand. We propose to them this rid dle, viz.; official calculations show that the 1895 crop of cereals in the whole world is much smaller than last year's; yet the prices of grain and everything else not monopolized are lower instead of higher. The president first got up a war scan and made a half panic on Wall Street a great drop in American securities al home and abroad, nud a great deprecia t;on in American securities, all railroad stocks and the rest; and this sent money rates up and gold flying; and then he called on Congress to drive through in o day, before the holiday adjournment, a bill providing for more bonds for the people. The House has passed the bond bill, but the Senate with VI majority for silver, will probably refuse to pass it, preferring that Bilver be paid out by the government, as is lawful.ratherthan hold the silver and borrow gold with bonds, gold that cannot be kept a day and that will have to be borrowed and re-borrow ed over and over again, performing do other service than to get the people in debt. So we are likely to have with the war scare and the money scare a dead-lock in the wheels of legislation, and the two scares will only vastly damag' the country without accomplishing .their originators schemed to make the "WHAT 6 HALL THE HARVEST BE" We are sittine at the bedside of the dj'ii'Jf yar auJ as we look back over the brief history we almost weep as well as wonder. Weep at the record it has made, the unnecessary misery it bascaused, and the wide spread and deep distress it has entailed upon the common people, not only of our own but of other lands. While we would not appear ts'ssimistic the love of truth compels ns to say that, in our opinion, the last sun of no year. for at least a quarter of a century, has jefamid such dense and impenetrable glopin. Unable to dispel or to penetrate the darkness as we sit in the dawn of the new vear. we can only wonder what the coining harvest will bel While it is true that small portions of tho land have suffered from drouthi and consequently short crops, yet to the thinking mind, this will go but a short " distance in explaining the general distress, the utter stagna tion of business, the unprecedent ed failures of private individuals uud institutions, and worst of all the shock given to human confidence in hum unity itself nml all human institutions. In looking over the situation, and the des olate Held stretching out before lis we are forced to the conclusion that the rain that is most needed is a reign of greater righteousness and amoistening and soft ening and cleansing of human hearts. Tukeaway human avarice and corporate greed, and give us a few refreshing show" ers of human sympathy and brotherly kiudness,und the clouds will lift, and the euu of 'S)G may set, if it does not rise, on a once more happy, contented and pros perous people. But will the people have the wisdom to inaugurate such a reign? Weudmit thatpreseut indications do not point favorably in that direction. Our national Congress is now in session and neither it nor the president seems to grasp the situation. Their time is main ly taken up with other matters, which seem to us of far less consequence. The peoplo, we imagine, are not so nearly concerned about a boundary liue between British Guiana and Venezuela as they are about a boundary liue between hopeand hopelessness, between plenty and poverty between a nation "de facto" and a nation do functo." We are in favor of the en- orcement of the so-called "Monroe doc trine," but we are not in favor of making its enforcement a pretense to enforce so- called Democratic or Republican doctrine on other questions. We are not in favor of it for tho purpose of distracting and diverting the minds of the people from living, vital, and burning issues iu which is wrapped up the welfare and destiny of the country itself. We are not in favor of it for the purpose of reducing our al ready scant circulation of legal tender money, and of increasing our already burdensome bonded indebtedness, and of a farther tinkering with the tariff ques tion,' which, in view of what is going on at Wushington.seems to be the principal object or end to be sought after and gained. With this view of the situation, which seems to be the onewhich forces it self Upon the minds of every candid and thoughtful observer, what, we are led to ask ugain, shall, the coming harvest be? Judging thecoming by the conditions at the end of the closing year, it simply means greater distress among the people, less ability to meet and discharge liabili ties, increased debt and taxation, greater financial wreck and ruin, and above all and worse than all to a free government like ours, it means still greater concen tration of wealth and fewer people among us who will own even an equity in their homes. The American home is the nursery of American patriotism, and when our people become dispossessed and robbed of their.own Art-tides, patriotism will languish, if its fires do not become entirely extinct. "There is no place like home" is as true as it is trite, and he who does not realize its potency iu building up and sustaiuingacountry like ours lias yet to learn the rudiments of all free government. We are just entering upon the most im portant as well as the most critical year iu our nation's history. It is, at the very threshold, pregnant with events of the greatest importance and which may be, in their development, of the most start ling character. Pot alone because it is to be a presidential year, but because o' the grave questions that are before us, and that will be certainly coming up for solution. Political parties are already locating their conventions and casting about for available, rather than states men-like, men as their candidates. One fact above all others is inspiring. It is, thatintothehandsof thecotnmon people will once more be committed their des tiny, as well as that of their country, And as they will it, and vote it, so shall that destiny be. Experience as well as scriptureshould teach us that men do not gather grapes of thorns and harvest figs from thistles, and that, "whatsoever a man soweth that shall healsoreap." AVe should remember that nature's laws are inexorable. We may deplore, but we can not change them, ana nence, while we might commiserate, we could scarcely pity theman.at the coming harvest, who is out his time and labor and has noth ing but want to garner into bis sheds and misery to house under his mortgage ed roof, if these should be found to be the legitimate fruits of his own sowing, But there still is hope, and we shall work and patiently wait the result of the coming harvest, and shall rejoice if per mitted to see tne toners oi tne ind com e LUe home bearing with them. the close the golden sheaves as tl reward aeir labor, an A 8TBIKIHG CARTOON Last week's Representative (Donnelly's paper) has a capital cartoon, which rep resents Grover as cook and Carlisle feed ing the fire. On the stove is a steaming kettle of soup, labeled "Anti-Trust Busi ness Interests, "and a sizzling sauce pan called 'Tower of the People." In the oven is "The Wealth Producer" baking, and urover is just trying mm with a fork. Carfisle is shoveling the green- bucks into the blazing fire grate from a huge tipped over basket, marked, "The Last of the Greenbacks, the 'Money of Abraham Lincoln." Over the whole is the legend "Done to a Turn." And un derneatb this dialogue is given: Cleveland: Pile 'em in Johnny. He is sizzling nicely. Old Nosey will be delight ed to see now we ve cooked him. lhe juice is running out of him. larlisle: lie smells mstlovelv. We'll have a lot of these greenbacks left and it would be a good idea, to roast the Ameri- san eagle while we are at it. Cleveland: That's right. We have pretty well plucked him already. Stick him iu. We suggest to Mr. Donnelly that he propose to his artist that he illustrate the situation in the drawing of an old fashioned cider press. Let the people appear in the press with arms and legs sticking out and the sweat and blood running, while Congress, the courts and theexecuti ve, with their handspikes, force down the screws. Call it "Plutocracy's Wine Press," and write a suitable com ment uiiderneath. ALL A WOEFUL BLUNDER We sometimes think that there has been by evolution a great increase in human dom in the last twoor three thousand years, but it is not so apparent when we acquaint ourselves with the wisdom of the ancients. The prayer of Agur was: "Give me neither poverty nor riches." Today the man who thinks less wealth is better than more is rarely overheard in his devotions. . Cicero also had more sense and discern ment than the moderns who fancy they have"evoluted"fnr beyond him, Hesaid. "One thing ought to be aimed at by all men: that the interest of each individu ally, and all collectively, should be the same; for if each should grasp at his in dividual interest, all society would be dissolved." Which, being true, prophe sies the dissolution of the each-for-him- soH commercial civilization, if not saved from itself, from selfishness. It seems to be the prevailing, all-con trolling belief that there is nothing valu able that money cannot buy. All are reaching after money us the means with which to gratify every desire, and even the multi-millionaire is still grasping after more money, thinking that with more he can increase his happiness, or satisfy his still unsatisfied desires. But it is all a woeful blunder. There is just one thing that can make us happiness, and that is, to labor for those we love and to be loved by them. We have some proof of this in the ideal family life. But what the most perfect family life is the community, national and world life must become. Each needs every other, or all. But hired service has no love in it, hence is contrary to nature's plan. It is not fellowship, but division and distance, leaving the heart barren. The market- ilace or exchange struggle for gain from one another, the contracts we make to serve or to pay money for service, sepa rate us, cut up the natural communal iody, compel antagonism of individual parts, destroying social life and fellow ship. Now it appears tome that the church was instituted to unite the com mercially separated contending families and so remedy the evils of self-seeking. The church when filled with the spirit of Christ was a voluntary communal orga nization, in which each divided with all and all cared for each. The Philadelphia street car companies consolidated some short time since and ruined "transfers" to eight cents. The citizens have held public meetings to de nounce the robbery and have formed "walking clubs" to force the plutocratic pirates to recede from their rates. A couple of weeks ago or so the employes, who were by no means benefited by the cousolidatiou or the raised fares, struck for better pay and the recognition of their labor organization. The condi tions against which they struck were as follows: The regularly employed motor men aud conductors have nominally a twelve-hour day, with an iutermission of thirty-five minutes forrest and lunch. In addition, they were required to take four minutes at the end of each trip, so that the time from reporting in the morning to release at night, was thirteen hours and ten minutes, or from seven in the morning till ten minutes past eight iu the evening. (Going and coming from their work would probably add two hours to this.) For this serviee they received two dollars a day. Besides these "regu lars" there were a large number of "trip pers" who made irom 50 cents to $1.50 a day, according to the number of trips they were employed. The demand of the men at the time of the strike was for $2, pay for ten hours work. This however was not their most strenuous demand. The newly organized combination of cor porations began to discharge men promi nent in the organization of the employes. The Geueial Manager said October 19, as reporteil fn the Ledger: These men are discharged for pretend ing to tak an interest in their work, and yet secretin exerting their influence and taking an Active interest in the affairs oi the Amalgamated Association street cat employees' organization; arid nil others who ars found to be taking a like active interest will be summarily dealt with. The Toyubee (philanthropic) Society denies the statement of the Traction company, that the men discharged were irregular at their work. They were all employed and paid by the day and were old employes. The citizens sympathized with the strikers, and so did the roughs and rowdies, and they showed their sym pathy by violence. The disturbances did not alienate the great body of the citi zens, says The Outlook. Saturday, a week ago, there was an apparent settle ment. Monday the Traction company repudiated it. On Monday there was violence and the police shot two men. On Monday night the men went back to work on a half concession that the orga nization should not be interfered with So the great war goes on. Fhom the bi-monthly bulletin sent out by the labor department at Washington we learn that there were between 1881 and 1894, 14.300 strikes in this country Of these ii per cent succeeded, Ai per cent failed and the rest succeeded in part and failed in part. The large strikes as a rule were the least successful. The aver age duration of a strike wus 25 days and the total number of hands thrown out of employment was about 4,000,000, By the same authority we are informed that the public aud private debt of the country aggregates $20,000,000,000, or an average of $1,500 for every family. This debt estimate from a public official (Mr. Holmes of the census bureau) is without doubt conservative, within the truth, but think what an average, inter est-eating debt of fi,oUO to each family means and indicates. It is no use talk ing, such an average and aggregate of debt cannot be lifted. The interest will not be met, and by it the debt will grow, foreclosures will dispossess the people of their homes, legal confiscation will con tinue its process, until there will be a violeut uprising of the landless starving proletarian masses. There is no legisla tion in sight during the next five years which would check the sweep and power of capital, the creditor class, and by that timeweshall have passed therapids and reached the verge of the fearful cata ract. Senator Quay announces that among the issues for the '06 campaign will be the building of G8 dams iu the Ohioand Mississippi rivers, at a cost of 50,000,- 000; the construction of tho Erie ship caual from Pittsburg to Lake Erje, at a cost of 116,000,000; the dredging of the Deleware river at a cost of $10,000,000; and the completion of the ship canal from Philadelphia to New York." Wise men who Cau read and fathom political jobs, believe the rest demanded is all subsidiary to the proposed Erie to Pitts burg ship cr.nal, and that Andrew Carne gie is the motor power behind the whole thing. The other jobs are added to the one so as to make it look like a general plan of public, improvements, and to draw local support in Congress. Politics, politics. Give the pulpits the credit that is due them. A New York financial report, re ferring to the Friday, Dec. 20, Wall Street panic says; On the Stock Exchange the wildest ex citement prevailed, nothing like it for tne sharpness of declines having occurred since the panic of 1873. The best dividend-paying stocks on the list broke five to six points, and many of the more speculative shares dropped ten points and over. Heavy sales were made ou both foreign and local account, particu larly the former. Over $0,000,000-gold went out during the week, and large amounts are expected to follow. A num ber of unimportant lailures occurred, and more would have happened had it not "been for the, generous policy of the buuks pursued towards customers of good standing. On Monday there wus a partial recovery, due Bomewnat to an abatement of the war scare and the strong utterances from the pulpits against the rising war spirit. The Populists in the senate did a right and seusible thing in refusing to help either the Republicans and Democrats organize the senate committees. The Democrats angrily charged them and the Republicans with a bargain. Alien in replying for the Populists declared that their attitude had been taken after due deliberation and in order to show that the. Populist party was as much a party and as fully organized as either of the two leading parties. He said they were disgusted with the Democrats (The Wealth Makers always has been) and wculd therefore not vote for their reten tion in the control of the Senate, and that they had as little confidence in the Republicans and had therefore declined to vote for a Republican slate. The editor of this paper leaves Lincoln Thursday to address the people at differ ent points in Butler and Nance counties He is billed to speak on the subject, "The Modern Babylon and the New Jerusalem.' Those wishinir to hear him upon this subject (which might be called, the com mercinl civilization and the kingdom of God) can secure him for meetings in their localities by writing to him at Lincoln Put on residence address, 2G39 Randolph street. Senator Allen did the whole country a service and honor to himself iu refusing to withdraw his objection to rushiug through without consideration the Chan ji km i nn nnn nnn inr immediate armament to prepare for war with Great Britain. Bat the good would have been greater if he had also inter posed an objection to the third reading of the bill. Farmer Brown and the Banker Old Farmer Brown went to hear a gold bug speech. It was the first time he had ever heard of "unsound and sound money." He wondered what new fangled notions people were getting into their heads. The next time Farmer Brown went to town hecalled tosee Banker Smith about this honest money. He said he had been out to bear Judge Aldredge speak, aud he told the people there was unsouiid money in circulation. He further told Bauker Smith that he had come to find out what sort of money was sound and what sort was unsound. Banker Smith told him that no money was sound except gold. "Weil, I'll declare to goodness," re marked Farmer Brown, "If that is so, then I haven t ft sound Holhir trv Dl, name, and haven't had for years!" Ain't this here paper bill sound money? said Farmer Brown, it says on its face that it is good for five silver dollars." "But silver dollars are only worth sixty cents," remarked the banker. "I kalkerlate you hain't got any to sell at that price have you?" asked Far mer Brown. The banker said he hadu't any to soil, but sixty cents was all that a silver dollar was worth. "Then what about this bill?" said Far mer Brown, presenting a greenback. "that mouey is not sound because, it does not say on its face that it is redeem able in gold," remarked Banker Smith. "lhe deuce it am tl" remarked Farmer ttrown. Hon t you take it ou deposit? It is true, you don't give a fellow anv sound assurance that he will ever get it out of your bank again, but don't you take it?" 'Y-e-s, we take them, but thev are a makeshift money and ought to be retired. So ought the treasury notes." "then, what are we farmers to do for money when you banksrs get all the pa per money destroyed?" asked Farmer Brown. 'The bankers will then issue a paper currency and supply you farmers with it. It will be flexible. , lou see when your cotton or wheat crop comes in the mar ket, we bankers will put out the money and you can get all you want." "Have you any bank money to put out now?"' asked the farmer. , "Plentyof it. How much do vouwant? All you have to do is to give me irood collateral." "Havn't got any collateral! If I had collateral I wouldn't want your money. Why can't you let us farmers have the money on the same sort of collateral you give us farmers when we deposit money u your bank. 1 will write in your little book the amount of money you let me have. If that is good collateral for us farmers, it ought to be good collateral for you bankers. "les, but we bnnkersdon t do business in that way. When we loan money we want security or collateral." 'Well, I can give you a mortgage on my land. How will that sort of collater al suit your' Can t loan money on land," remarked the banker. 'Now," remarked the farmer, "you bankers are a lot of money sharks, I be lieve. You wont lend money, though the earth is given you as security. You wont give us farmers any security for the money we deposit with you, though you turn right around and loan it out at 20 per cent, and refuse to pay us a cent of nterest. lou are not satisfied with this sort of robbery, but you want to dis honor and disgrace all government money and issue a bank script of your own, and I reckon yon will call that stuff honest money! When you get the gov ernment to turn over the money making business to you bankers, you will have things about your owu way, I think. If you want my cotton or wheat cheap, you won t let any money get in circulation After you get all of our crops bought up then you will turn the money loose and make the pi:e go up. That is sound money, is it? My opinion is you bankers and politicians are all a lot of darned thieves and robbers, and I won't have anything to do with you., I have been a votiu' the Democratic ticket for twenty years, patiently waiting for the good times you bankers and lawyers promised Your good times dont come. Its all sound money and collateral and sixty cent dollars. 1 am done with the hull lot of vou rascals, and me and my six boys will all vote the People's party tickejb at the next election. Sound money, eh? Well, I guess the pops will give us about as sound money as any party, aim r tu rner Brown got in his wagon and gave the mules a dose of strap oil that sent them on the run down the road towards his home.

Wholesome self-Criticism I have always tried to be honest with my readers and never say one thing when I believed another. If at any time 1 have failed to make my ideas understood, it was because my thinking was not clear, not because 1 was trying to deceive and confuse. When I say that I neither hon or, love nor revere the Populist party, I may surprise some of my readers. iut 1 have not thrown off the yoke of one party to put on that of another. I am not advising men in the old parties to lay aside their party prejudices and think for themselves, and theu exhorting them as soon ns they become Populists to shut their eyes to everything that is wrong in our own ranks and swallow anything that is offered them.. And I like nothing better thau to have my own ideas criticised. We Populists have been saying and thinking that the people need educating, and that as soon as we can thorn to onen their eyes and see things as thny are, they will be with us.

We are not oi top in Kansas and throughout th northwest today because onr leadership has been selfish and self-si-ekiug.

Every reform movement is "judged by the character of the men whoareat the front. If it appears that where Populists are in office they are just as eager for big sal aries and the loaves and fishes of official position, as the leaders of the old parties you will never see a Populist wavesweep ing over the country. It is eternally true, as the "Spirit of the Age" says,. ' that a reform party must be a party of heroes. The old abolition party was such a party, and it proved the leaven that leavened the whole lump of the American people. We can't run with the hare and hunt with the hounds.

Lloyd, in a recent article in the Coming Nation, say that the selfish interests of wealth areaunit in this country today; but the opposition to plutocrucy is weak and disorganized because there is selfishness thNre too. Until the people can be united oa reli gion of unselfishness, and work for "re form without any thought or hope of profiting above their fellows by the changes they seek, it will be easy to con quer us by keeping us divided. The reA form movement has got to mean vastly more than voting for a change iu rulers before it will kindle the fires of enthus iasm iu the hearts of the people. It has got to mean more than monetary re form; more than the free coinage of silver or an abundant per capita; more than government ownership of railroads and mines; more even than the public owner ship of a!! the, means of production de manded by advanced socialists. "What, then," do you inquire, "must it mean?" Nothing less than the self-sacrifice and the sell-denial, the entire effacement of self aud the willingness to benr our brother's burdens taught by Jesus of Nazareth. There is no other way under heaven by which the race can be saved from the evils that are crushing it. We must worship God by Berving mankind with all that we have and are, or weshall continue to be as those who beat the air. Star and Kannan. FLOTSAM AND JETSAM.
