They nre jiaitl, as will 1)2 aoen, by interests
that can well afford to pay them, and the only
rcsnlfcof their abolishment would be tx j ut avast
sura of iuqncy into the pockets of the monopo
lists. The public at large would reap no bene
fit from their repeal, while the reduction in
the revenues of tho Government would afford
the enemies of the soldier in Congress a plaus
ible pretext for opposing in the luturo ivcy
Mew pension or .bounty measure that mig'it bo
proposed. It might even serve as an excuse
for refusing to vote the money necessary to
meet the requirements of the arrears act, and
our veterans thus, for the time being, be
cheated out of the. pittance due them under
existing Jaw. ..Certainly tho chances of the
passage of tho equalization of bounties bill
would ba very seriously iaiixiircd. Said tho
late Senator Morton, Indiana's War Governor,
of that bill, in tho course of a memorable
speech in the Senate of the United States:
"Jr. President, justice to the soldier cannot
always be deferred. It must and will triumph some
lime. If it docs not come this Congress it wilt come at
wine other Congress. It is a part of the war debt, as
mud i so cis the 5-20 botids or the 10-10 bonds. It is
founded on the same principle of justice. It is an
Migalion resting upon this Nation, and if it takes
S20,o00,000 or SoO.OOO.OOO can make no difference. It
is a debt this Nation honestly owes and ought to be
paid. In other words, let the bounty be equalized;
put all honorably-discharged soldiers uj)on the same
basis; pay than at the same rate. They arc entitled
to it. The justice of it no man can dispide, and that
is all that tins out contemplates. X am for it. J. role
for it with all my heart.1'
Are our ex-soldiers and sailors disposed to
look quietly on while their enemies spike their
guns and dismantle their forts?
One word more, and the editor of Tin: Na
tional Tribune will conclude this appeal.
One of the objects which have been enumerated
as constituting the mission of The Tribune is
the propagation of the principles of the Grand
Army of the Kepublic. Certainly this should
command the hearty approval of every veteran
and enlist his hearty co-operation. The build
ing up of the Order is synonymous with tho
building up of the soldier's influence, the
preservation of his rights and the maintainanco
of his independence. The National Tribune
has cutered heart and soul into the work of
establishing new Posts, and if our veterans aro
anxious to increase its usefulness in this re
spect, they should hasten to extend its circula
tion. No better testimony as to the value- of
its labors could bo desired than that which is
contained in the following significant endorse
ment of Commander-in-Chief VanDcrvoort:
" I consider it the ablest paper devoted to the inter
ests of the soldier.published in the country. Tcarncstty
commend it to all comrades of the Order."
Commander-ln-CJiicf, G. A. 12.
In conclusion, the editor of The National
Tribune simply asks that you will carefully
read and examine the sample copy sent you,
and, if you approve its sentiments and have
any concern whatever in the triumph of the
principles which it advocates, that you will
subscribe for it. Of course, if you are already
a subscriber, no argument is necessary to con
vice you of the importance of build ingup the
circulation of The Tribune, and the editor
takes it for granted that you will distribute the
sample copies sent yon-among-your friends and
acquaintances, and if possible, induce them to
s::bsc.ib. If you will do your part, The
Tribune ought toxcach tho desired circulation
of ona hmuh'ctl thousand by tho fiioi of January
