To the Brotherhood of the NatUmdl Farmert Alliance and Indxitrtal Union. We believe that the great principles upon which the demands of our order ere based are correct We believe that these principles are founded in equity and justice. We believe their recogni tion and adoption In our governmental policy would conserve the highest Inter ests of the publio weal. We believe that the Just equlpose between the great In dustries of our country, which Is abso lutely essential to our existence as a free people, has been destroyed. We believe that the political power and wealth of the country are being appropriated and ab sorbed, through discriminating and vic ious legislation, by the few, to the detri ment and ruin of the many. We believe that as a people we are fast drifting away from the landmarks of the fathers of the republic. Promoted by these painful convictions, we have solemnly appealed to the sense of justice and patriotism of the Amen can people. Ignoring past party differ ences, men of all sections and of all shades of political opinion have magnanimously and patriotically aligned themselves un der the Alliance banner and espoused a common cause the cause of a common country, the cause of humanity and jus tloe, We expected opposition, persistent, bitter and powerful opposition. We ex- pectedthat every expedient that could be devised for demoralizing and dividing us would be employed. We expected that the formidable evils against which we had entered battle would entrench tnd fortify behind party lines and employ the machinery and enginery of party power azalnst us. We expected that our righteous demand for an open field and an equal chance in the race of life would be Ignored and spurned. We expected that our earnest plea for justice would not be weighed In the scale of reason nor met with fair and manly argument, but that we would be ridiculed, maligned and persistently misrepresented. In all this we have notbeen disappointed. Now what is our doty as Alliance men? Plainly, it Is to stand loyally and man fully by our principles, vote for no man nor party who oppose our principles, ex tend the hand of friendship and fellow ship to any man or party who favor our principles. Place principles above par ties. Place measures above men. Place country above section. Place love of home, of family, above the allusive and treacherous rewards of party service. Place right above wrong. Let duty the grandest word ever uttered In the dialect of mortal tongue- duty to God, duty to country, duty to home and family, be the sublime stand ard of our action In all things devolving upon us as citizens. Let us be dilligent and faithful in all our duties as Alliance men. Keep up and strengthen the or ganization. Encourage the wavering, strengthen the weak and confirm the strong. Continue to educate the people in the great principles of justice, equity and truth. The crucial teet of our man hood and our loyalty to principle is upon us. Stupendous effort will be made by our enemies to so direct the campaign of 1802, as to disrupt and destroy our or ganization. Appeals to sectional pride or prejudice will be made. Let us answer that our order knows no north, no south, no east, no west The disaffection or dis loyalty of an occasional traitor In our ranks will be urged as evidence of decay. Let us answer that no human organiza tion that ever had an existence was ex empt from these. Party fealty and party spirit will be invoked to force an aban donment of our principles. Let us an swer that we will stand by that party that will stand by us, and that we are not so blind as to expect relief at the hand of any political party that opposes our prin clples and seeks to destroy our organiza tion. Weakness in numbers, and our disorganized condition as a political fac tor, will be paraded to prove our help lessness. Let us answer that the old Saxon spirit and courage which met this same base argument in two of the mighti est revolutions of modern times, and gave to the world this great country, has not yet died out in the hearts of the American people. Corporate power, centralized capital, and all their allied political forces, will be held up in formidable array to Intimi date us. Belying on the justice of our cause, the invincible power of right and the favor of God, let us meet them with the only weapons left us manhood and ballots. "Equal rights to all and special privi leges to none" is all we ask. A just and honorable people would ask for nothing more. A just and honorable people would be content with nothing less. Be not deceived by plausible devices involv ing a compromise of principles, or a betrayal of the high purposes of our order. Beware of the gift-bearing Greeks. Fraternally, L. L. Polk, President N.

" Where we are, how we got here, and the way out" By Hon. W. A. PEFFER, v. s. sbnatob ntox xairsis. 12mo, cloth Price, S1.00 There is a demand for a comprehensive snd authoritative book which shall represent ths farmer, and set forth his condition, the influ ences surrounding him, and plans and proppects for the future. This book lias been written by Hon. W. A. Peffer, who was elected to the United States Senate from Kansas to succeed Senator Ingftlls. The title is Tub Farmer's Sids, and this indicates the purpose of the work. In the earlier chapters, Senator Teffer de scribes the condition of the farmer in various -parts of the country, and compares it with the condition of men in other callings. lie carefully examinee the cost of labor, of living, the prices of cropsj taxes, mortgages, and rates of interest He gives elaborate tables showing the increase of wealth in railroads, manufactures, banking, apd other forms of business, and he compares this with the earnings of the farmer, and also wage-workers in general. In a clear, forcible style, with abundant citations of facts and fig ures, the author tells how the farmer reached his present unsatisfactory condition. Then fol lows an elaborate discussion of " The "Way out," which is the fullest and most authoritative pres entation of the aims and views of the Farmers' Alliance that has been published, including full QL3CU3310U1 oi mo currency, vue ijuibuuus vi interest and mortgages, railroads, the sale of crops, and other matters of vital consequence. This book is the only one which attempts to cover the whole ground, and it is unnecessary to. emphasize its value. It is a compendium of the facts, figures, and suggestions which ths farmer ought to have at hand. Thi Fiana's 8ni has just been issued, and makes a handsome and substantial book of 330 pages. We have arranged with the pub lisherj for its sals to our readers at the pub lishers' price. The book may be obtained at our offloe, or we will forward copies to any ad Jreat, post-paid, on receipt of tl.00 per copy. We have also mwle arriuigeinpnu by which we can give this book and a year's rabscripUoa to Thi advocate for $175. Address ; ADVOCATE PU8tl5Him CO., Tcpt'J. JCan.
