the r:zcr.ASKA i::oErz::DHjT stc? ioxd Trainnr Feltor of the Denrer Conference CommitiM&iTM Ss& Wfeln Adrlc to Certain Knocker . Editor Independent: It seems very strange that men of intelligence find so much fault with the Denver confer ence. Why, sir, that was simply an effort made to bring about a fraternal ieeling between discordant elements. Nothing was done, nor was any "at tempt made, to deprive any committee of any authority; and so far as the clu organizations are concerned, they remain just as before. The aim was to agree to come together and having done so to acquaint the populists of the nation with the fact; and to encourage stimulate and enthuse and at the same time cpnvince all concerned of our s.ncerlty of purpose we put forth an address reciting our acts and the Oma ha declaration of faith to show that the gospel remained In all its original purity, and tfould still hold him who in the Says gone by watched it in its glery and 4 paled before its lessening rays. . ' "'" ' ' - The Denver conference left all its acts subject to the action of the two national committees to meet at St. I.ou!3 February next and there will then bb a ioint call made for a na tional convention where the whole matter will be settled. Where, then, can any one honestly say there 13 treachery, when everything done" was done subject to the approval or disap proval oi the partf in committee or convention assembled? How strange .this howl ? of "treach ery," "Slick Guys," is, especially from those who were not present! It strikes me that if I thought, as some men's ar'icies read, that I belonged to a re- form movement headed by a lot 01 rascals, I would through self-respect vithdraw my connection from it. It hdo been admitted by all clean thinkers that ingratitude is the crime of the world and when we think of the edi tors who struggled along and finally lost all; of those still making a sacri fice and of those working in season and out of season -for the cause, we think of them as ever at the front, ever on the firing line, ever present on duty and then we think of the man ever in the rear finding fault and we wonder if ingratitude is broad enough to de scribe the offense. What seems to be the matter with some is they prefer to ride a hobby rather than a principle. Let me say that a political party tt at keeps looking for a sponsor : to take care of it, always ready for a trade, is not composed of that class of men in whose hands we could afford to entrust this nation. We find some kicking because the Denver conference favored calling a national convention and others because it favored calling a convention before either of the two old parties called theirs. We will look at the first complaint: J. J. Streeter opposed national con ventions or platform-making conven tions or nominating conventions, and wants all the" voting to be done by precinct voting and precinct action oiiiy according to the' plan adopted at Cincinnati. v e have no fight to make on the Cincinnati plan as a system, tut with the conditions that now exist how can it be worked? Why, just go end work. Ah! there is no one to do the work because there is no money even to pay car fare from town to tewn. Now let us be candid about this Cincinnati plan. . Have any of it pxomulgators gone out. themselves, or sent out a worker to prove its efficacy? Why? Because no money, and no mon ey because there is no organization; therefore no organization because of no money, and there is nothing done. How, then, can the Cincinnati plan be worked before there is an organiza tion to work with? Organization is the all important consideration of the hour. What we need most is organi zation and the Denver conference, rec ognizing this fact, set about to devise a plan. Does J. J. Streeter understand lie is fighting some of his best friends? The difference between us, is that Streeter wants to wont with the pres ent conditions while we understand the necessity of an organization first. Does J. J. Streeter contend that the pcpulist party has an organization? If 6o, it is only on paper. There is not a political party so poverty-strick en, there is not a party I can call to mind but had and still has men in the field oiganizing with money to pay the speakers. The question now is: Can the scattered hocts be brought together in order to perfect an organization? If this can bo done then it will be time to put into operation the Cincinnati pian and for this reason I-am per suaded Bra Streeter is altogether pre mature with his fight on the Denver conference. ! ! The second proposition "because we advised calling a national convention before either of the two old political parties." We wanted the country at large to fully understand that the pop ulists knew first what they wanted and the way to get it Furthermore wo believe now or never Is the pro pitious time for the populist party to take a firm stand with a clean cut sharp, crisp declaration of principles, Independent of both old parties and fight for the faith promulgated at Oma ha. Let the past bury the past. Let this plan or that plan, this scheme or that scheme, this hobby or that hobby my way or your way, give away and each and all bow to the will of the majority; and let us each and all pull together and complete an organization that will give us the greatest national convention the populists ever had, and there and then fight for our peculiar ideas and let the populists of the na tion settle the whole matter. Let us cease this internal warfare, for it matters not who is the smart est man, or who is the biggest man, or who is the greatest orator, or who is tee greatest writer. Let this petty jealousy cease. The reading public is tired of it Let us show a spirit that crowns a jnanly man. Let us show we have political sense enough to hold it and operate it Let us cease fighting each other. The enemy is in sight all along the line. Turn your guns on the enemy. ,We want money. We want organi zation. We want votes. We want men. We want less throat-cutting and more ammunition to fire on the enemy. ,The harvest is ripe and the laborers are few. Who will ''slay those that go forth to sow the seed? Is it I? i; - : J, .. g, FELTEIt. . ;. Springfield, 111.

' Land lamtcints Never in the history of central and western NebrasKa has there been such activity among land buyers as at this time. Scores of renters, and men who are buying for speculation,, and men who are selling their high priced land fnd going further west where they can get cheaper, are out there picking up the best bargains. The crops throughout this section are much bet ter than crops in eastern Nebraska this year; 40 bushels of wheat and 60 bushels of corn being a very common average.

Deposits the Entire Reserev The Security Mutual Life Insurance company of Lincoln wrote more busi ness in July and August than ever be fore In the history of the company.
