Men are very hard run for WMie* thing to say when they will stand up and say that the misery, hunger starvation, poverty, and wretched ness now so prevalent in this land, have been caused by an over production of the good things of life, such as hay, corn, oats, wheat, all kinds of fruits, horses, hogs cattle, sheep, etc. Such men are to be pitied. We'll not burden them with the management of affairs any longer but put in their place men who do not believe that much rain will cause the creeks to go dry, that if the cows give much milk we shall have no but. ter, that if we raise much corn we can't fatten our hogs, that if we raise much wheat we shall have no flour, that if we keep on raising children the population of the country will decrease.— Farm Record. Chances. Of all men on the earth, the Ameri can is the most hopeful, energetic, and self-reliant. As he would phrase it, he is a "hustler," and all he wants is a chance. Horace Ureely's famous advice "Go West, young man,'' has not lost its value, for the chances are good in the West. But the United States is now, more than ever, a country of good chances and great opportunities, not alone in the west but south and southwest. The Missi ssippi Valley the Rocky Mountain Regions, the golden Pacifle Coast and the sunny plains of the South, are full of chances for ambitious young men who are not afraid to work hard. To visit any of these sections of our country, "The Bur lingfon'" has long been the favorite route, reaching as it does, the most important points in nine of the best states ami territories in the center of the continent, and by connecting lines being the short ami direct route to all points, from Puget Sound' the Gulf of Mexico.

The people of Iowa are justly proud of the widening fame of their great and good governor. Two years ago it was scarcely known in a dozen counties that there was such a man in the state of Iowa as Horace Boies. Today his name and his fame have gone abroad into all the states of the union and his chances for president ial honors are being seriously con sidered. His rise in the world of poli tics has been as sudden and plienoin enal as was that of Grover Cleveland. He had spent a quiet but honorable life praticing his profession as a law yer until his locks were gray, never seeking office, and but for the fortun ate nomination at Sioux City his masterly ability would probably have remained a secret to all except in his own locality. His letter of accept ance convinced democrats every where in the state that the right man had been nominated. His analysis of the platform on which ho had been nominated was a masterly produc tion and inspired confidence in the democratic ranks. His speeches dur ing the campaign were clear, logical and convincing and his every utter ance since then has been of a char, acter to increase his popularity. The fact that he could be elected in so strong a republican state as Iowa on the democratic ticket was what first drew the attention of people in other states to him and his able and fear less address before the reform club of New York first set people to talking about him as a possible presidential candidate, but until the recent letter of Cleveland on the silver question his name was ever mentioned for second place on the presidential tick' et. That letter is thought by many leading democrats to have rendered Cleveland unavailable and Governor Boies is being more closely scrutiniz ed to ascertain his fitness for the head of the ticket. He is found to be in no way inferior to Cleveland, in the fit ness and breadtli of thought and in soundness on all the issues presented by the democratic party. He is in full sympathy with the farmers in their efforts for relief and could be relied on by them to favor any mea sure that would promote the general welfare. We believe under all cir cumstances that he is the most avail* able man the democratic party can unite on and that with him as their candidate success would be assured in 1892.— Bedford Southwest. BOXING VP A DIFFICULTY. There is a class of very small politi cians with whom manipulation is a fine art. They get along very well, too, while the public mind is quiescent contriving to deceive themselves and the public into a belief that they an very influential. One of the favorite devices of these fellows is to induce the temporary representatives of larger elements of the people to commit themselves to certain injurious policies, so that when the public shows dissatisfaction the politician says: "I had the per mission of your representative to do so." An attempt of this kind has been made in regard to the railroad assess ment. Messrs. J. B. Furrow, presi dent, and A. L. Stuntz, ex-president of the Farmers' A1 lance J. W. Mur phy, secretary of the State grange D. E. Morris, representing the Shelby County Fanners' Alliance, and Win. T. Dilier, were induced to sign a "peti tion'' to the executive council as fol lows: To THK EXECUTIVE COUNCIL: We, the undersigned, iaimers who have been present and heard the argu ments and facts presented to the executive council, pro and con, on the question of taxing the railroads of Iowa, relying.onthe integrity acd good judgment of the council, and realizing that it is a subject too com plicated to be settled by off-hand opinions, do simply ask the members of the council to l»»e their ment and f°!lCVv their honest convio* tions, having due regard for the farm ing interests, which we believe to be over taxed as compared with other interests. This document, it is safe to presume was signed by these gentlemen as an expression of confidence in the execu tive council. Little did the singers think that it would be heralded to the world as an acknowledgement that the railroad assessment was "too com plicated" for farmers to understand and that the farmers would go on voting for the members of the execu tive council even if they continued to assess railroad property at 13 per cent while farm property is assessed at 30 to 40 per cent. Yet such was the in tention, and such was the result. The Register and Leader both claimed it assuch a concession. The farmers were made the victims of a confidence game. It is hardly worth while to remark that this petty plot has not boxed up this difficulty. The farmers of Iowa will not be signed over to the ^il roads, even by their official represen tatives. especially when their repre sentatives are honestly deceived. Their determination that taxation shall be equal in this great state will be as effectively voiced at the polls as if this small piece of chicanery had not been practiced. The candidate who shows this "petition" as authority for opposing a just assessment will be buried under an avalanche of con temptous and indignant votes. The masses are not responsible and cannot be tied up in writings.—Des Moines News. Good for Senator Bolter. Senator L. R. Bolter of Logan, Iowa, says: "I regard the letter of ex-President Cleveland on the silver question as an untimely and unfortunate epistle. Its trend is Republican rather than Democratic. Should the principle therein outlined be incorporated in our next national platform it would lose us every Western State and en danger several of the southern, inclu ding the two Virginias, North Caro lina, Louisana, Missouri and Arkan sas. Even should we succeed on such an issue a panic would follow that would not only bankrupt the West but the Democratic party as well in fact we would have no Democratic party in any of the great agricultural States which are at this time nearly if not quite debtor States. The issue tendered by the letter is not in ac cord with Democratic principles nor with democratic precedents. The let ter can only be construed to mean either a limited or an absolute inhib ition of silver coinage. This letter places Mr. Cleveland in direct opposition to each and every Democratic member of the United States Senate and in opposition to the well recognized Democratic doctrine on the monetary question. The debtor class will nev er support Mr. Cleveland on that is sue, and long Republican rule has made a very large majority of our people debtors, and many of them beggars. The letter possesses but a single merit, that o courage. A Wall street candidate cannot be elecled, and certainly should not be nominated by the Democracy and trut»t will not be.''

One year «*o last February Father Nash's life companion and loved wife went to be with .testis Till the date of her death Father Nash had been in exuelknt health for a man of hi ear*t but since that time he has rapidly failed. However, the Immediate cause of his death was heart failure, superinduced by la grippe. In early manhood his first had died, and he seemed to shrink from IXwife -IUK left thus alone again in his old age. He livl frequently express ed a desire to precede bis wife from this world, but such was not the Lord's will yet his lone some stay was not long. Mr. Nash wu the lather of 14 children, 8 of whom are still livitig, vi/.: three married nons liv ing in Lime Spring*, one in Cherry Grove, Minn., and one in Crnco, where they are well known la business life, and two daughters at cherry Grove, Minn., and one at Walnut Grove, Minn., all hl«h ly respected in society. When a boy Mr. Aash worked on the Erie Ca nal, and In bis old age he took great pleasure in telling of 1L He must have been among the last survivors of that great enterprise, which was be gun in 1817 and completed in Mil. Father Nash came weal and settled in Fillmore county, Minn., in 1857. He began there with hut •mall capital. What be accomplished and what he accumulated there after he had psssil middle life Is an evidence of the strong chancier of the man, and Is, as well, au encouragement to us by demonstrating that it is never too late In life to begin to do well. For 13 years Father Nash has made bis heme in Lime Springs, where his memon will long be cherished by all who knew him. More than sixty descendants, hale and hearty far above the world s average, tell of vigorous blood and virtnoos life.

The remedy to nave faith in, is the remedy the makers themselves have faith in. The fate of Speaker Reed has been curious and instructive. His sole purpose in the conduct of his office was to throw discredit on the Demo cratic party and to push himself into prominence as a Presidential candi date. But the Democrats have man aged to thrive under his persecution, and will be in a large majority in the next Congress, while Reed retires to an obscurity so dense that the sound of Gabriel's trump will hardly reach him. It reminds us of Goldsmith's famous lines on a mad dog: The dog, to gain his private ends, Went mad and bit the man. The man recovered of the bite The dog it was that died. —Waterloo Observer.

At a meeting of the Citizens' Al liance held at Washington a few days ago, Jerry Simpson, Congressman elect from Kansas, made a speech, aud among other things said: The Alliance did not pretend to have solved all the ins and outs of legislation, but that would come later on. They had set the people think ing. There would be two great par ties, in his opinion—the Alliance and the Democratic. The conservatives would naturally drift to the Demo cratic ranks. The Republican party was as dead as was the Whig party in 185ii. and had only been kept alive of late by the ledaers keeping up the old sectional hate between the North aud South. He repeated the argu ments that have been made for the necessity of a third or people's party and interspersed his remarks with il lustrations and stories that set the audience in a roar. He protested against legislation that allowed one half of the wealth of the country to be held by one two-tliousaiulth part of the population. He drew a pa thetic picture of the poverty that existed among the farmers of the West aud the laboring classes of the East, and deplored the apathy of law makers who let such conditions exist. He spoke of having visited the wo mon's convention which met in the city last week. He had seen fine ladies dressed in silks and wearing fortunes in diamonds and precious stones on their persons, reading fine essays on education and woman's sphere, but he had not heard them say a word about the 20,000 woman in New York who'.are driven to crime to obtain a livelihood, nor propose a a plan for their redemption. Mr. Simpson described his first visit to the capitol how he had viewed it from all sides, and looking at the figure that surmounts the dome, thought he saw the representation of a working man carrying a hod- He thought how appropriate such a statute wap. He timidly inquired of a bystander what, the figure represented, aud was informed that it was the Goddess of Liberty. Then he began to think, and seeing that the face of the image was turned to the east, he said: "How appropriate she can look over to New York and see the 10,000 little children that die annually for lack of proper protection. She can see the 20,000 young woman doomed to deg redation she can look on the thou sands of oppressed in factories, mines and mills, ground down by greedy capital, and I said to myself, if this is a free country and tilts is liberty, then give me death." A FINGER BOARD. Tl« National Economist DeSnos Its r«d tlon the OrgM of tho Or4er. The Economist has from time to time defined its position on tha various ^aM tions of th« day aa they arose. It has uniformly sustained and supported every principle of the Farmers' Alli ance, and contended for snch action on the part of the membership as would be best calculated to secure the ulti mate triumph for those principles. This, it is believed, has been the proper course for the official organ to pursue, and this belief is strengthened by tha thousands of letters received from the members of the order commending the course of the Economist. It is aa old maxim that "once right, always rlghV and a course that haa met snch nniveral approval will not now be abandoned. This Economist, while It will preserve Its non-partisan status politically, will be no milk and water paper it will have pronounced opinions on all subjects ani will continue to express them with pot fear or favor. Partisan democrats, partisan repub licans and partisan third-party friend* within the order have had much to say •boat the duty and position of tho Farmers' Alliance politically, and tho Economist has seen fit to publish so many of these conflicting views, that it now seems necessary the Economist should, before partisan strife becomes again fierce, define the position of tho order on this important question, and outline the course it will pursue as the official organ. This is also necessary because a large majority of the com* munlcatlona received and published by it ar^ in favor of the third party move* ment. The Farmers' Alliance is a strictly farmers' organization, for the purpose of securing "mental, moral, social and financial improvement." As in the plainest terms expressed in its organic and fundamental law, it has been strictly non-partisan from the very be* ginning. With that understanding of its object everywhere taught by every member and every alliance publication, the order has had a phenomenal growth and prosperity. Experience has shown that this conception of the objects of the order is a solid and acceptable foundation, ample for the largest and most durable superstructure. All this being true, it follows that it would be very unwise to change the policy. More especially is this true when the antici pated policy is one that has so often led to failure, and the present policy has been attended with greater results and rewards. Why then any necessity for a change? It should be remembered that "nothing succeeds like success," and that it is always well to "let well enough alone." The order, as a non partisan organization, can stand the de moralizing effects of the coming cam paign of 1S92 and continue to grow, even though its members agree individually, and practically all act as partisans in the same party, whether that party shall succeed or fail. But should the order participate in a partisan strife it would lie damaged by defeat and per haps destroyed by success. Whatever the order is the Economist must be, while it is the official organ. Every thought and idea it has must come from the order, and every word it publishes must be for the good of the order. The course pursued by the order up to date has been very wise. Measures have been indorsed and advocated. A meeting has been called for February, 1893, for the purpose of conferring with all organizations of producers willing to co-operate with the order and agree ing on such demands as all are willing to indorse, and to decide on the method of enforcing these demands. This is perfectly right and proper. It could not be said that the demands had the indorsement of the people unless they coine from delegates elected by the peo ple and instructed on those points. The time intervening between the notice and the meeting gives ample time for such election and instruction. The de mands would amount to nothing unless some plan or power of enforcing them is known to exist, llut many fear that the plan for enforcing the domanils will be a third party. Such fears are ground less, because should that course be pursued there is no ground for apprehension. Whenever the rank and file of people (and they will surely be represented at that meeting) say a third party is necessary it will come, and it should come, and all good citi zens can afford to hail it with joy as citizens, because it would for a time at least abolish corruption. But the Farmers' Alliance as an order could not have such political party as a branch, or a so-called "side show" in the alliance. The very existence of the order would preclude it from accepting a subordinate position in the party. The party and the order could not both be supreme over the same subject at the same time. Both are organizations, and must be kept separate. The members of the order, when they have received that degree of education as to the principles of the reform movement that causes a unity of sentiment which cannot be disturbed by agitators, will naturally all vote alike, and it matters not whether they do that as democrats, republicans or reformers, so they do it and secure the needed reforms. The order should preserve its high position as a great reserve force always sup porting the right, strengthened by de feats and solidified by success. The official organ should and will advocate the order anil its interests above every thing else. It will closely observe the individual acts of the membership in partisan politics and encourage or condemn as the best interests of the order demand. Among the worst enemies the order has to slay are £hose brethren who are so blinded by partisan zeal that they fail to see the truer and higher mission of the order, and would, to secure peace with the partisan press and stop its false and unjust attacks, compromise by removing the objection able features from the sub-treasury plan and the other alliance demands, so that the democratic, or the republican, or the union labor party could swallow it. Nothing could be more false to the order and he who would make this movement a branch of any party is a traitor to the cause and should be in* trusted with no authority In the order. Let the third party come by all means if the people say so. But let it be a people's movement, and not an alliance party. Let it embrace in its ranks all classes of society and protect and serve the interests of all, but let the alliance pursue its great reform and educational work on a plane of responsibility to God and duty to man that calls for ef fort as long as evil shall exist to be met and neutralized.—National Economist.
