In reply to our question Why not treat the gun Holder to Tho same that was Given to the Bro. Burdick remarks. This is a Small question but it opens a Field far too Broad for our space this Wank the question is not Only Short but simple. Multitude of words Darken counsel end generally used to Pervert judgment. The following is our solution through Tho manipulations of legislation the Bond holders in vestment has been depreciated 200 per cent without Tho risk to life or health by Tho name Means in addition to the risk of life and health the a gun holders Money investment was Down Oia Tod o o per. Cont. Further having tilled their term of service a. Gun holders they have As plow bold Era devoted Twenty years of toil to make Good the appreciation Denand d by the Bond holders and have additionally paid yearly taxes on the profits of their labor to defray Tho expenses of the government that should be for the Becht of ally that the bondholders May go untaxed. This is the Plain unvarnished statement of the fact in the Case and requires no comment a argument. The contrast Between the conditions of Bond bolder und gun Holder is to great As Between Light and darkness As Between lord my slave. There is not a Man Woin in or child of average intellect in the land but can Soo the discrepancy at a glance and volumes of line drawn Sophis tries cannot dissipate the 11a-Ifrant injustice of the who1? transaction. Simple Justice in this enso demands that the party who has Boon Over paid shall Divide his profits with die party that has been underpaid flow to approximate the nearest to such a settlement is it question which should engage the at tent on of a people and of statesman leg Isla Loi b in Congress. More graciously than he. Than Why not extend it until it enfolds in its healthful influences every sincere honest Man. To have formed the acquaintance of several living in this Vicinity in is of them Are known to to intelligent Reading thinking men successful in business and Largo property owners. Tho same is True in the counties of Clayton Delaware Dubuque. Fayette Bremer Bilic Kliwak and Buchanan. Among the Farmers Are found the most wealthy Wili estates in Many instances ranging in value from $5 ,-000 . Among manufactures and dealers May be mentioned those whose transactions run far into Tho Hundred thousands and into Tho millions. Why cannot musings men not Only editors but merchants and manufactures and professionals in their Intercourse with the world suppress Tho offensive Nesb of partisan and sectarian prejudice.

The assertion that Green hackers s8 a role Are not bankrupt is too thin to need notice. Look at it in this country it has Only thrived at till thong the Bluff y and sterile Banks 01 the yellow and the Iowa Rivers where Prosperity is almost unkown. Review. We Don t know Many of the Green backers of this comity and we Ara no acquainted on the sterile Banks of co yellow and Iowa Rivers but whatever Tho fact it is not in Good taste and in Raluy places it would not be healthy in a general Way for an udi a Tor thus publicly to insult the Citi on of his own county even if they do differ from him in politics. We must confess that by o. Burdick has a courage that we do hot possess to do not dare to insult an honest Man simply because in differs from us or in poor. But such things Are common.

And flit is the living Issue of today mid it is of in re importance to the people latin All other Tho ques i m of currency is a question of National life and tie 1 til. Had the greenbacks never been issued our nation .1 existence would have terminated Jong years ago. Give to up cilia ing Corpora Titus the control of the nations life fountains i s currency for Twenty Yea is longer and t lit Sun of this Republic will again set in blood history of the Farmers Alliance. It is now about to Lve years since the first move was made by the farm Era of new York to protect themselves through organization against the discrimination of railroads and other carrying companies. On investigation it was found that is Cost More to have a common milk can and contents carried sixty Miles from Orange county into the City than was charged to carry a barrel of Petroleum of four times Tho weight and bulk Over 201 Miles and besides certain Points and localities wove discriminated against while others were favored. Now he complaints of Orange and dutchess county banners met an Echo in almost every county in the state. Meetings were called All Over the state and an Alliance of the Farmers entered into Independent of party to secure legis lation in their behalf. Tickets were Putin the Field stud in to Lidalee of All efforts tins politicians could make a working majority of the Farmei elected and held the railroads in control. The first railroads started in that state were regulated in their charges by their Charters the same As Turnpike roads and though Vanderbill has spent millions in the Effort to have the tolls on the new York con trial changed the passenger Faro Stilt remains As originally established 2 conts per mile. If that paid so largely in the Early Days of railroads 1 cent per mile would to ample at the pros ent Day oven the average Streetcar fare is often As Low As one half cent. To much for new York. Now let us turn our attention to Iowa. In 1872 the Grange was in full activity in this stale. I Don t believe that there was a single county that had not from one to a dozen Granges run Wirig. But there w s one vulnerable Point about the Grange the patrons were strictly a of habited from introducing politics into the Grange room Flint was nil right As far As party politics were Donee feed. But when it came to a question of general politics such As legitimate taxation control of transport Littion companies and oth or monopolies court Reform Etc., Etc. That had no room Lico to Parry poli is some of the still partisans Felt l Vns a reflection on their party and tin by of politics politics was raised and Foi the Sake of peace and liar the subject was dropped. But the pressure be "111111 so Strong it was thought Best to Start a Nev party after Tho rumple set us by now Storl t. On consultation with s m Smith better known As Herman Smith at that Tunc the lending spirit in the Illinois Farmers club organization we decided to Start a new to Dpi civil movement by the. Farmers and invite workingmen Anil Wago labourers to join with us to protect our a selves from being plundered by the corporation thieves. The meeting was in the court House in this place Muscatine find to called ourselves Tho Auti Mono Foo by party. The mov Mont spread like a Prairie lire and that fall we carnal Over sixty of the counties in the state. The leaders of the dominant party were Thunder struck they supposed it was Only a few Hay so ii grangers playing Ai politics and that party fealty was too Strong for them to interfere with existing parties. But when the results of the election were known it startled their. Then they supposed that the old Farmers to ild make fools of themselves when they Dame to enact Laws. That was the legislation that passed Itiat is generally known As the Grange Laws limiting transportation companies in their charges for hires of Pasao Nger freight charges Etc that has saved the Fri ineral of the state millions of dollars but Tho of list Bernons sin that the unti monopolist committed was the smelling committees that unearthed to much party Rassa Lity tit fhe least of which was the expense of forty treasurers As defaulters. In Fri Deli times they were called thieves but under the present rulings we must be tender of their feelings. There was one scape Goat a demo j crat that had to be sacrificed for the j sons of the Otlmor thirty nine who were duly placed on the Stool of repentance and after due time received Back into full Fellowship with strict injunctions to keep their Little fail Ings better concealed for the future. The politicians determined that Hie Grange should to squelched out Anil All their ensigns of ridicule were brought to Bear on the patrons till Grange after Gra go closed their doors and in Iury of the counties in the state that were strongest in the movement have been without a living Grange for some years. It made Little difference As far As either of the political parties Are concerned they were both alike hostile to patrons. It is True that in fhe Start of the anti monopoly parly the democrats Fried to Honey Fugle them so As to switch them into the Ovin cratic. Party but when thy found that there a no Prospect of that they no ume the bitter enemies of i lie Honfi Immo polies. The republicans tried to repeal the statutes control aug Riti Loru charges and fares but they Irea Dod the Farmers so they buttered them up with Starling Railroad commissioners who act As doctors and administer sugar coated pills of very Small dimensions. In gives a few party Pel Nice snug berths and serves to amuse the credulous Farmer like a Ball of worsted Sti yes to must a Kitten. But the Farmers had Learned their Power through organization and the Eum Getie ones determined on to new move and. As the Grange had played out. Ami Many objected to the High fees secrecy regalia and pass words it was thought Best to Start the Farmers similar to that of new York. Some three or four years ago a few lending tanners began working up the Alliaud o movement in this state. But the politicians were not to to caught napping this time so a few editors of Republican papers bad a meeting in fhe parlor of the Des Moines Register the leading repro bean Organ in the state and then and Here organized a Farmers Alliance Mil had the Cheek to Send one of thir number As a Delegate to the National Alliance convention held at Chicago. But As Quick As the from Kansas Missouri and be Raska Learned the. Particulars they sat Down on loin and refused to re Cognize him As a Delegate. This was .1 bad beginning for the Alliance in Iowa Ami the Farmers held aloof whilst the parly press Ridi tule a the movement. But there is 1 Strong desire among the banners for a More thorough organization. Taxation is increasing monopolies Iro extending their franchises the very Dement that should be taxed the highest Dodges taxation not Octh a our courts Al e thrown into skinning establishments where the Poitr Are flayed As Long As there is hide enough left to pay the operators and he Job is done so Thoi Oug Bly that he hides won t even pay for tanning. Now fellow Farmers what Are Yon going to do about it remain passive and degenerate into the same condition As the poor peasants of Ireland Tome Zubor it took centuries to rivet 1 heir Shackels. Interest with you is the same As the rent charge with diem. Their land is ail owned by Absentee landlords. Our magnificent Domain is fast passing into the same hands. The Drain of wealth from ibis free Laud to foreign capitalists is enormous. Railroad stocks bunk stocks corporation Bonds of All descriptions Cortili ates of Stock Nidorf i ice Etc., we All owned by foreign Tali fits and paying untaxed while you Are burdened with taxes to keep Virts running to protect the right if those that Don Tenn tribute one cent themselves of. Now comforting it is to tile citizen when be pays his taxes to contemplate the Protection and patriotism Hown to foreign capitalists and land ords that condescend to cover our arms with Cut Throat mortgages and Frao Bing up our Public lands. But i Trust close this Long article. But before i close let me ask you vat Are you going to do about it. Mow is the time to organize and act. The legislators Are in session and did die Farmers Combine together As the new York banners did they might demand Reform and it would 00 accorded to them. Form alliances in every township in tie state Dis Luihn the 1/iofct important measures Tii so have Good Evnest men to lecture at the various meetings support none but Good reliable officers that Are. Run in your interest. Boycott All other. Rely on yourselves Pul your shoulder to the wheel and get out of that party mire Hole As Quick As the lord will let you and remember he has promised to help those who help themselves.
