THE NEBRASKA INDEPENDENT 7 DGHAKOE'S VIEWS What Member of The Old Guard of Pop uliain Said After the Defeat of 1803 "After the election of . 1201, Thomas A. Donah oe, of Wood River, Neb., who facetitlously styles himself a "high private., in the rear rank of populism," wrote.-.lhe letter below to one of the leadors of populism in Nebraska. - For pertain reasons the name of the V person addressed ' is omitted, as are also a few personal references which are not germane to the subject' tinder discussicn ., t Mr, Donahoe said: My Dear Sir: We have met .the enemy and we are theirs! In this our Waterloo it is well for ug to take in ventory of the affair and learn, if possible, why the groueheys did not appear at the critical moment. It is to try jto come " to some cause or causes for the result, and to try and offer, if possible, a remedy, that I 'presume to address you through you our reform leaders. I find the following combination of causes '. responsible for the result: Disorganization, jealousy . and rivalry of the contending factions, the swap ping off with the republicans at previ ous elections portions of the local fu sion tickets, and a general . demorali zation of the nopullst party, owing to the taking off of Mr. To wnc from the late presidential ticket, which I feel convinced, causes a general apathy amongst the rank and, file of the party. Added to-, which is the still hunt practice of so many fusion candidates, inviting support for personal consid erations, instead of making the. fight entirely upon principle, in an aggres sive manner, as we formerly did. Changed conditions, the causes of which the people do not appear to understand, and which the refublicans shrewdly construe to their advantage, together with a compact organization and plenty of funas. to keep thenars employed, also aided. ' V What to do? Get together; in one compact body all elements opposed to the present policy of rapine and pa ternalism for private gain, as" exem plified in the present republican or ganization, upon an advanced set of economic principles, direct and plain ly stated, through the referendum, as we determined some years ago k whe ther or not the alliance. snoukr take independent political action. ,,f , r , Our delegations in congress and the legislature, wherg In the minority,' to have a declaration of all the members therein placed in the record, advocat ing deserving principles and refoims which will serve as splendid cam paign material in a concrete form. Then hammer' the opposition shut off debate where possible, and., force them to appear in their votes merely. Advocate, as I once wrote you, to take the convicts from the contrac tors and put them to making such things for themselves and the in mates of the other state institutions, as will save the people taxation, and at the same time pay the convicts a fair sum for their service&; which will go . to their wives and chHdren and others who have been dtpendt-nt upon, their labor while they Lad their freedom, or to themselves when old and feeble after their term of Im prisonment has expired. For it is surely against p.iMJe pol icy to turn thse people over Xo con tractors for. exploitation, while i those dependent upon them is bread-winners become objects of public or I'ri vate charity. jt If the present session of congrers makes the silver dollar tedecmalle in gold, let them do it. Such action will hasten the day when the people will substitute a sensible curreucy based upon labor, i. ., full legai tenders 'paid out. for services rendded the government, and receivable for all debts owing to the government, the For. over sixty years Mrs.- Winslow's Soothing Syrup has been used by mothers for thvlr children while teeth ini?.

United States proper), a place where the gold will go eventually. -; They should also introduce a bill which will be very educational and show the. people how the national banks eat anrt still have their cake. Keep constantly putting sharp pointed prods beneath their easy cushteas. I would amend -the national bank law as follows: All interest on bonds de ducted to the amount of . the circula tion based, thereon. I believe this would demonetize the banks without saying a direct word. And tariff? Why not frame a tariff law thus: Sufficient tariff, say 8 per cent, for actual investmentwith enough for revenue ba.ance to go to labor direct, to be apportioned and applied by a non-parlisan commis sion, over against those sufficient pro tection against foreign goods to cover all three classes. I believ3 thJs will be a trump card in the new party's success, and will make a plain show ing whereon we can base an . Income tax. , The democratic party will never again, as such, succeed in a national election; and it only serves to give Cleveland, Hill and others an oppor tunity of exercising their treachery to true democracy. I am confident if the Bryan democrats, the populists, silver repuolicans and other reformers get together as the American party upon a good American money, taxation, transportation r d economic platform, they will soon win. The Clevelands will go to the g. o. p. and soon the rank and file will come to us. Then republican success will drive them mad, which will be their undoing. I enclose a few, planks on separate sheet which may be of some service as thought builders. " The national committee ought to have, published an elegant, concise, and truthful epitome of political hap penings here, as also foreign, when it affects us. Thus, March 1, McCormick harvesters sold at Omaha wholesale at $100; at Bremen, Germany, $62.30. This to be published daily or weekly or monthly and sent to every voter in the whols country Constantly. Con stant drops of water wear the rock away, you know. . ' ';' ' T1IOS. A! "DONAHOE, High Private Rear Ranks Pcpuiist Party. Wood. River, Neb. Judge Bender Editor Independent: I have -worked in and with the reform political move ment for over twenty years Was present at the convention at Omaha, July 4, 1892, and gave my sanction and voted for the a 'option of the platform of principles, and the permanent or ganization of the populist party at that time; and the principles adopted are auite a3 dear to me now as then. . In 1890 I was personally opposed to fusion, and I believe if we had not done so that today we would not be the third party. The majority think ing otherwise, and the reform demo crats promising the same thing open ing up a prospect for the election ot a man to the national executive office that would judiciously and wisely rec ommend the carrying into effect some at least of the main points -demanded by populists, I finally gave my con sent to the fusion as the quickest way out of the woods:-but have been much disappointed in the turn things have taken. If the reform democracy had been honest in their admission that the populists were right, Mr. Bryan ought to have been elected in 1896; and fail ing then he should have been elected in 1900. Therefore, if he democracy Is to go bark to the Cleveland t Leery, so distasteful to populists, If eveu suc cessful (which, without us, would bo doubtful) we would have no assurance that any part of populism w- uld bo carried out.
