ORGANIZING THE ALLIANCE
ONB of the most practical results c
the Into successful mooting of the Earn
era" alliance is soon in the rapid 01
ganization of subordinate bronchi
which is taking place in countii
where previously no alliances hn
boon working. According to the n
port of Secretary Burroughs the fo
lowing counties wcro unrepresented I :
alliances at Iho Hastings mcotiiij
Burl , Butler , Cedar , Ohoyonno , Gliasi
Cuming , Dakota , Dixon , Dund ;
Frontier , Grcoloy , Harkn , Ilayc
Hitchcock , Koitli , Lincoln , Pawnci
Pierce , Hod Willow , Sherman , Stai
ton , Sioux , Valley , Websler an
Wheeler , in all twenty-five. The Farn
ors' alliance very Vroporly appointed o ;
ganizors for thcuo districts and with !
the ensuing three months it is hope
that every county in Nebraska will I
represented by ono or moro subod
nato bodici pledged to work and vol
for Iho piinciploi of the Nebrneli
State Farmers' alliance. NVhat Til
BIIvishei : to brina to the attunlio
of its readers in localities where \ \
alliances have boon formed is that tl :
work of organizing and starting no
bodies ought not to bo loft solely i
the hands of workers from the stal
alliance. The means to bo employe
for securing n charter fc
a working alliance are HO simple ati
so inexpensive that every precinct i
our atato ought to possess oilo of thui
debating clubs for the wealth pr <
ducors of the fitato. The time hi
past when the Nebraska Farmers' a
lianco could bo called a moro polit
cal experiment. It has demonstrate
its strength and the force and chara
tor of irl members. With more thn
12,000 voters on its membership roll
and with constantly increasing nccc ,
siena , it bids certain to exorcise an ii
fluonco upon the conduct of affairs i
this statj which no other agonc
would have boon able to accomplish i
HO short a space of time. It is pledge
to a government of the people and b
the pcoplo instead of ono by th
monopolies and for the monopolies
It is pledged to secure fair and cquitii
bio taxation , honest state and count
oflicors , and such an adjustment c
the laws now regulating the relation
of the producers and common carrier
as shall aflord the people of this stat
some relief from the grinding oxac
lions under which they have bo.on suf
foring.
With those aims in view , the Farm
ors' alliance appeals to the poraona
interest of every operative farmer ii
Nebraska. It desires to count among
its members and supporters all IIOIIOB
producers of the state who believe ii
its principles and who are willing tc
work in furthering them. No county
in Nebraska should delay any longoi
joining the ranks and adding to th <
Hot of subordinate alliances which an
fie rapidly forming and strengthening
in every portion of our state.
AN Omaha dispatch to the Denvoi

PAVING MATERIALS.
The host material in paving is tli
cheapest. The best material is UK
which combines durability of foundi
lion with a true roadway surfaci
This has boon the experience of ever
city whi'ch has grappled with the pai
ing problem. In Philadelphia whoi
every material has boon fried , tl :
city council has resolved to lay 11
moro macadam or cobble stone pavi
monts , and are discussing the rolath
merits of Belgian block , asphalt nn
wooden block aa paving materials. 1
this connection the Record prints tl
following sensible remarkauponpavir
which wo reproduce entire , and con
inotul to the attention of our citizci
and the members of the city counci
The first requisite for any travcli
roadway is a firm foundation. Tl
second requisite is n surface true at :
oven , to prevent jolting and giving tl
least poviiltlo resistance to wheels coi
fiistunt with the prevention of slippir
for horses' faat. It is evident tin
foundation and stirfnco togi'thor ' fori
the pavement , and that citlitr buii :
imperfect no good icciilt can bo ol
tained. The best surface \\i\l \ bocon
bad if the foundation is defective , an
the best foundation will not sccuro
good road if improperly surfaced. Tr
foundation gives stability ; the eve
surface Hccuros drainage und proven
destructive wear from heavy tractioi
The pavements in ordinary use i
the largo cities of the world have sui
faces of stone , wood and asphalt. Th
ordinary foundation is maduof a layc
of gravel ; a hotter ono is a layer c
brolcon stone , six to eighteen inchc
deep , or , as common in England an
Paris , a solid bud of the best comer
concrete which is given a perfect !
smooth Hurfaso on top. This foundf
tion is considered the true road i
England , the material placed upon i
being simply tlio wearing surface t
bo replaced when worn down. Tli
solid foundation prevontn settling hit
depressions , ruts or holes. It als
prevents the mud from winking t
the surface through thu joints of th
stones. Now York , Boston and a fo
ether cities havu begun to give thoi
streets such foundations. While i
increas.es thu I'uat cost considerably , i
will bo the cheapest in wear an
cost of clcaiiini , ' . In streets wit
heavy truflic , as in London and Live )
pool , the extra firat cost has been n
paid in a few years by the saving c
lepairs , not to npuak of the superior
ity of the roads both for business pin
poses and for pleasure travel. Th
largo number of streets extending in
to the suburUs , being little used , nat
urally do not require such a firmfoun
dation as those in the heart of th
city , but no street can bo made per
Feet without an absolutely solid bed
1'ho first requirement of the surfaci
: it a street is smoothness , Whei
rough , whether stouo or macadam , thi
ivhoolsjump , acting as rammers , the <
; ho mutual destruction of both streo
xnd carriage. The blows cause thi
mbsoil , whim unprotected by con
: rote , to risa to the surface , and thi
s the almost aolo cause of the pros'
) nco of mud found on the pavec
itreols of the center of a city. An
ither advant.ige of a smooth aurfaci
is the greater ease with which load
may bo drawn over it. Yet a limit t
this smoothness is dr.vwn by havin ;
sufficient adhesion to the horses' feet
3 tone pavements are best made o
ilocks three or four inches wid
ind aix inches deep , haviii ;
parallel sides , neatly dressed t
: rom tightly-fitting joints , which ar
illed with fine sand , or , bettor still
ivith asphalt or mortar , to proven
nrator from soaking down on the sam
from working up. The best stem
'jlock ' , or Belgian pavements as thoj
ire commonly called , are in England
svhoro they are laid on a cement con
jroto foundation and the joints an
311od with cement grout. The practice
tico is to take out the blocks whet
their surfaces become rounded and t <
replace them by others. The pave
inont of North John street , in Liver
5pol , which has a traffic of 4,000 ve
iclos averaging throe tons each pei
lay is probably the best stone pave
tnont in the world. The blocks an
if Welsh granite , neatly split , will
md oven top , set on ton inches of co
nont concrete. The joints are filled
with gravel about the size of a pea
free from sand , and then run will
: oal tar pitch. The joints are vorj
iloso , so that there is hardly anj
rounding noticeable , presenting an
ulmirablo surfaco.
Wood pavements , which were suol
i failure in our country , are now ro
wrtod a success in England. Thoj
ire being extensively introduced ant
ised for street surfaces in London
vhero the trafllc and wear are von
Tying. The reasons ivon for thii
luccossaro that they sot the blocki
m a smooth bed of concrete instead
) f upon boards laid upon . the ordi-
lary ground , as wo did ; and also thai
.hoy . quite thoroughly impregnate all
ho blocks with oil of creosote , which
vo did not do. Another cause oi
heir success is attributed to the
[ roator uniformity of the climate.
Iho cost of cleaning a properly-
ormcd wood pavpmont ia much loss
lian that of cleaning a granite pavo-
nont , as there Is loss surface dirt to
10 removed nothing from the sub.
oil. London experiments have
hewn that horses can travel with a
aad more easily over wood than ever
ithor asphalt or granite. Before an
coident occurs a horse in the city of
london travels 232 miles on granite
01 miles on asphalt , and 410 miles
n wood. Wood is also less noisy

t has no sanitaiy disadvantages if

to.Asphalt
Asphalt has boon in use for a lone
me. The objection to it is its slip ,
jrinesa under certain aimospliorio
mdttionir and when not perfectly
can. Then a sprinkling of fine
avel is required to bo thrown ever
10 surface to give foothold to horses ,
i dry weather the asphalt is safe to
avel over , art also during a heavy
in Bufticnont to wash the surface-so
at it is not asphai t which is slippery ,
it the fine greasy mud and the horse
oppings accumulating upon it. The
feronco may therefore /airly bo that
icro cleanliness is enforced asphalt
> uld bo a very desirable paving.
When properly laid its durability
very great , the wear being almost in
perceptible , ns tests have shown. Tl
great expense of a good asphalt pav
niont , which hag boon urged ns an ejection
jection to it , is balanced by its long
wear than stone-block pavements ,
is smooth , noiseless , non-absorboi
and moro readily cleaned , either 1
swcopina or wash ng , than any oth
pavement. IU freedom from noise
fast placing it in all the _ business at
banking streets of the city of Londo
where ft aooms to bo superceding r
other pavements.
If stone paving is preferred tl
stones requires a more careful dros
ing than they ordinarily receive
order to give them a moro even nu
face and closer joints to prevent tl
rounding of the corners. The blocl
require to bo set in v layer of shai
and coarse gravel , but not into
screened , fine ami loamy gravel , siu
as is common arounjl our city , whii
when it gets wet differs very litt
from genuine mud , The prnctico al

The South Carolina Election Law
_ A correspondent of the Chicago
Times says the now election and reg
istration law passed by the legislature
of South Carolina , juat adjourned ,
was the crowning act of that body.
This law provides for the registration
of all voters , and no elector will be
allowed to vote at any election who
can not produce a certificate of regis
tration. Ono supervisor is provided
for each county , with two assistants ,
to the three of whom shall bo refer
red all cases whore the supervisor has
rejected an applicant for registration.
The supervisor shall visit townships
for the discharge of his duties , aftei
duo notice , whore ho shall keep his
books open not loss than ono noi
moro than three days , during May
and June next , after which he is to
open his books at the county seat foi
revision and correction. After the
cioso ot the registration books , on the
first Monday in July , they shall re >
main closed until after the next gen-
oial election thus allowing a third ol
a year . to elapse between reg
istration and election. Before
the election the supervisor shall
revise his books and strike oft" the
names of those who have died or 're
moved to another county. Those
who remove from ono election pre
cinct to another shall obtain a trans
fer registration certificate or bo de
barred from voting , and the elector
who is so unfortunate as to lose hie
registration certificate or does not
present it on the day of election will
not bo allowed to vote at that elec
tion. The supervisor determines by
sumnnry process the qualifications of
voters , but in case of rejection an
appeal is allowed to the two assistant
supervisors , and irom them to the
circuit court. The law's dnlays in a
case of this kind would confound if
not tire out the class of voters upon
whom this law will fall with the great
est weight.
All managers of elections will bo
furnished with duplicate registration
books , and no ono will bo permitted
to vote whoso name does not appear
in said book , with his age and rVjsi-
don co.
The door to fraud is thrown wide
spen in the Jaw where it provides
that at the conclusion of the registra
tion , if a qualified voter has failed to
register , the supervisor "may , upon
iugh evidence as ho may think neces
sary , in his discretion , permit the
iiamo of such voter to be placed on
iaid list. " This is the luw of a demo
cratic legislature , and as opposed to
republican rule will bo productive of a
Jemocrutic vicitory. But if there
ihoukl be a split in the democratic
rinks , and each faction sought the aid
