People's Party Platform.
First -That in lew of the great social , industri
al and economical resolution now dawning upon
the chilizcd world and the mw and living issues
confronting the American people, wc believe that
the time has arrived for a crystalization of the po
litical reform forces of our conntry and the form
ation of what should be known as the People's par
ty of the United States or America.
Second That wc most heartily endorse the de
mands of the platform as adopted at St. Louis. Mo.,
in 1889. Ocala, FIa in 1890, and Omaha, cb., in
1891, by the industrial organizations there repre
sented, summarized as follows:
A The right to make and issue money as a sover
eign power to be maintained by the people for the
common benefit. Hence we demand the abolition
of national banks as banks of issue, and as a substi-
ntc for national bank notes wc demand that legal
tender treasury notes be issued in sufficient vol
ume to transact the business of the country on a
cash basis without damage or especial advantage
to any class or calling. Such notes to be legal ten
der In payment of all debts, public or private, and
uch notes, when demanded by the people, shall
be loaned to them at not more than 3 per cent, per
annum upon non-imperishable products as indi
cated in the sub-treasury plan.
B Wc demand the free and unlimited coinage
C Wc demand the passage of laws prohibiting
alien ownership of land and that congress take
prompt action to devise some plan to obtain all
lands now owned by alien and foreign syndicates
and that all lands held by rairoads and other cor
porations in excess of such as is actually used and
needed by them be reclaimed by the government
and held for actual settlers only.
D Believing the doctrine of equal rights to all
and special privileges to cone wc demand that
taxation national, state or municipal shall not
be nsed to build up one interest or class at the ex
pense of another.
E Wc demand that all revenues national, state
or county shall be limited to the necessary ex
penses of the government economically and hon
F Wc demand a just and equitable system of
graduated tax on income.
G Wc demand the most rigid, honest and just
national control and supervision of the means of
public communication and transportation, and if
this control and supervision docs not remove the
abuses now existing wc demand the government
ownership of snch means of communication and
H We demand the election of president, vice-
president and United States senators by direct
vote of the people.
Recognizing that a dose commercial union of
the western and southern states is much to be de
sired on account of the magnitude of their com
mon interests, we declare our firm belief that such
an union can only be effected through the instru
mentality of that party which has its chief strength
in those states, which believes a government by
the people is a safe government, that the farmers
and laborers of the nation can be trusted with the
reins of power, and that the overthrow of existing
evils can only be accomplished by fearlessly cut
ting loose from the control and dictation of New
England, Kew York and Pennsylvania. Our mot
to may well may be "Let the greatest good of the
greatest number be sought."
In view of the fact that Ford county politics
have heretofore been used solely and only as a ma
chine to gain office, manipulated by a ring com
posed of leaders of both the old parties, we believe
that n form is imperatively demanded to the end
that the abuses growing ont of this un-American
and unpatriotic practice may be corrected. We
conceive politics to be a necessary medium to ob
tain faithful public servants only, not a means
to the end that the members of any clique may
rotate in office.
Wc condemn the practice of electing men to of
fice whose private affairs prevents them from at
tending to their public Unties. Wc believe that
election to office carries with it the obligation to
attend to the duties devolving on those elected.
Wc, the delegates and alternates composing the
People's Party Mass Convention of Ford county,
do hereby expressly pledge ourselves to an uncom
promising support ol the whole and entire ticket
this day nominated.
The prices of grain seem to be hav
ing a regular fandango.
A fresh impetus was given to the
boom of the third party candidates by
the democratic county convention.
The Citizens' Alliance is making pre
parations to organize in every city in
the union. Chicago will be given the
Wc should be pleased to sec the Dem
ocrat let up on the Hill boom long
enough to make some mention of west
ern K ansas crops.
Daily papers seem to give the prefer
ence to Alliance news these days. Sa
gacious editors understand that live
matters interest readers.
Unanimous nominations in the old
parties signify that the slate has been
made by cunning hands, rather than
that harmony prevails. There were
murmurs not loud, but exceedingly
deep, after the convention.
Gen. Rice issues from the obscurity
to which he was consigned by the elec
tion of Senator Pcffer long enough to
make a vicious attack upon Editor Mc
cune of the National Economist Mc
Cune can ill afford to take his precious
time in answering blackguardism.
There is a chance that China wil
feel the heavy hand of the westers na
tions because she refuses to stake re-
dress or reparation for the wrongs citi
as of other nations have suffered at
her hands. There are now lying in her
harbors, Vmerican. English and French,
ieeta which have threatened to bom
bard her ports unless something is done.

There are rumors that Germany's
emporer has cone mad. It's a colder
day than August has furnished when
some sensation about the young kaiser
isn't going the rounds.
The many discriminations made in
favor of the tariff barons have again
been exemplified by the treasury de
partment, recently. As is well known
there is a law prohibiting the importa
tion of contract labor, but this law has
been suspended in favor of the tin plate
manufacturers and they arc allowed to
import all the labor needed without any
penalty attaching. This is indeed a
free country if you are rich.
Paris, August 17. If the Amen
ican fanner knows how to seize the op
portunity his money bags this year will
be filled to bursting. Rarely has an
opportunity more golden laid within his
grasp than is now held forth by the con
dition of the crops of Europe. This
was the impression received from a con
versation with William D. Washburn
of Minneapolis who has, during an ex
tended tour of Europe, collected in
formation from strictly reliable sources
regarding the condition of crops. Mr.
Washburn says the prospect is that
there will be a surplus of 200,000,000
bushels of wheat in the United States.
To all appearances Europe would want
every grain of it.
A WRONG VIEW.
Both the republican and democratic
parties in this county have been preach
ing to railroad employees, that if the
People's party came into power their
wages would be cut down. Tlicy base
their argument on the fact that the
third party is hostile to the railroads
and hence to its employees. Some ad
vocate this theory through a sincere be
lief that the deductions arc sound. The
politician! advocate it in the belief that
it is simply good campaign material.
Let us hold this theory up in the
bright, clear light of comparison and
sec if there is anything in it. The Peo
ple's party which was organized at Cin
cinnati was composed of the industrial
organizations of the country. The Al
liance, the Knights of Labor, the Con
federation of Labor and the different
Unions were all represented. This fact
should convince the most skeptical mind
that the party was started in the inter
ests of the laboring and producing class
es not in the interest of one class but
for the welfare of all. In order, how
ever, to confine this article to the point
at issue, it is necessary to look at the
attitude of the People's party toward
the railroads. One of the great evils
from which the people suffer, is the
enormous charges for freight carrying.
These over charges arc not made in or
der that railroad employees may be paid
higher wages. Not at all. But they
are made so that dividends may be paid
on what is known as watered stock,
that is stock that has been issued and
sold to investors over and beyond the
actual cost of the road. For instance,
supposing that the Santa Fc road, in
cluding equipage, rails roadbed and all
cost $25,000 per mile. The road be
gins paying and the owners begin issu
ing more stock, every dollar of which
thus issued, docs not represent a cent
of returning power, but yet it demands
a return and dividends have to be paid
upon it. As more watered stock is add
ed, the dividends will naturally begin
diminishing unless the freight charges
are increased and employees wages arc
cut down. This is what is done.
Strikes result among employees and a
cry goes up from those who patronize
the road. It is this unjust and unfair
advantage that the third party is fight
ing and not the employees. Indeed,
they are fighting directly in the inter
ests of the employees. If the People's
party could attain this end prevent
the issuing of stock which docs not rep
resent an earning power, railroad em
ployees' wages would be higher than
they are today. It is easily compre
hended that there arc but two ways of
paying dividends on stock that repre
sents no value and that is by overcharg
ing for transportation or cutting down
wages. Hence, the People's party is
really fighting directly for the benefit
of employees, and any assertion to the
contrary is against reason and facts.
The Democrats met in convention
Saturday and nominated the following
ticket by acclamation: Sheriff, T. E.
French; treasurer, Otto Mailer; clerk,
R. S. Crane; register, H. M. Beverly;
surveyor, John Sheldon; coroner, John
Martin; commissioner 2nd district, G.
F. McKinncv; 3rd 'district, A. J. An
thony. Some precincts were not rep
resented and the opera house during the
convention had a lonesome, deserted
appearance m entire accord with the
woe begone expression of the delegates.
A few of the old guard were there from
the country probably fifteen, and the
Dodge delegates and alternates made up
the rest The dreary, monotonous
stretching away of empty seats chilled
the heart of enthusiasm and the work
was confined to a dry (strictly figura
tively speaking) routine. The slate
had been so well made that the country
delegates had not the heart to attempt
to break it The result was that five
of the candidates on the ticket are from
the 2nd ward of Dodge City. We were
always aware that the 2nd ward con
tained a plethora of office seeking tal
ent, bat that this array would go into
a convention and each secure a nomi
nation for an offce, will cause the most
aneieat and persistent office seeker to
burnish np bis brass and try again,
fherc was no great display of oratory
among the democratic Demosthenes,
Bill Petition and John Martin making
and putting the motions, there being no
discussion. Each candidate had to
come forward and make a bow. Aside
from the candidates for treasurer and
register, jf the other boys said anything
it was swallowed up in space and the
sound never got beyond two or three
delegates. One candidate seemed to
have a right conception of things and
when making his speech, he ignored the
delegates by turning his back rn them
and delivering his speech to chair
man Bill Petition. It was afterward
explained that the candidate thought
Bill was the convention and hence
the error. There were some dele
gates elected who refused to take
their scats and it is probable that
they will be heard from later. The
spirits of the third party men who at
tended rose higher and higher as the
convention proceeded and they mani
fested more enthusiasm than did the
democrats. Ernst Hiland, the wheel
horse from Wheatland, was happy and
stirred up more interest than any one
else. The platform made the time hon
ored reference to Jefferson and Jackson
but Bill Petition quietly and effectual
ly smothered the plank endorsing Clove
land. County affairs were ignored as
well as state matters. Jim Kirkpatrick
looked after Judge Whitclaw's judicial
interests ty having a committee of threo
appointed to confer with the judge and
select delegates to the judicial conven
tion. The most conspicuous feature
of the convention was the ignoring or
the country. Jim Kirkpatrick or
Dodge was made temporary and Bill
Petition permanent chairman. Then
every office went to Dodge City. This
result brought forth the observation
from one delegate that "What in thun
der the Dodge fellows wanted me to
drop my work and come up here for, is
beyond me. They had everything fixed
and I suppose that they wanted us coun
try delegates to swell the aud.cnce, for
that it is about all we did." But wc
forgot to give them credit for putting
Al. Cord and Glen Lawrence in as sec
retaries. FARMERS VS SPECULATORS.
From the State.
As the harvest of 1884, the largest
we ever had, was 512 million bushels,
the last government report would indi
cate a crop of 494 million bushels, say
500 million in round numbers.
The home consumption has increased
with the population and is certainly ov
er 350 million bushels, probably 3G0
millions, which leaves 140 million for
During the last ten years we export
ed 127 millions yearly an average of
which Europe received 107 millions
and the West Indies and South Ameri
ca 20 millions.
This year wc may have 13 millions
more to spare, which however will go
to South America on account of the re
ciprocity treaties, and Europe will re
ceive the average quantity of about 107
million bushels and no more as wc have
no reserves to draw upon.
This would make both ends meet
there if Europe bad a good average crop
but Europe has not a good average
crop, in fact it has the worst crop fail
ure of the century.
Last winter was phenomenal all over
Europe in its severity and duration.
Snow and ice covered even Italy and
Spain and were actually carried far in
to Africa. Vessels on the Mcditcran
ian came into port thickly covered with
ice and this abnormal weather worked
incalculable damage to the winter wheat
in all the countries of that continent.
The spring has been very late and very
unfavorable and even in June snow and
frost destroyed most of what was left in
half of Germany and a great part of
That the crop disaster is not local or
moderate or unexaggcratcd, can be
clearly seen by the actions of the dif
Russia appointed a commission to in
vestigate the crop damages, which re
ported wheat 17 per cent, below aver
age and rye much worse.
It is the custom of that government
to quiet the alarm of the people, and
the damage therefore is surely not less
than reported but probably much more.
The following Associated Press dis
patches would indicate that the official
report does not tell the whole truth:
"St. Petersburg, July 11th. The
suffering of the people in the Volga
1 country through famine is increasing
"St Petersburg, July 17th. The
crop reports exclude all hope that there
will be a surplus of cereals for export
The importation of foreign brcadstuffs
Austria is the only country, which
until recently had crop prospects not
much below an average, but an Asso
ciated Press dispatch of June 13th
states that even that government is now
alarmed about the food question on ac
count of the destructive frosts in the
second week of June.
In Italy and Spain measures are un
der debate tending to protect the peo
pjmggiinst a famine.
xn Germany the advisability of call
ing together their congress on account
of failure of the crops has been discuss
ed in a long meeting of the cabinet, in
which votes were divided. The whole
press now unanimously demands this
measure, and the council of Berlin has
petitioned for it, and on account of the
last disastrons frosts this extraordinary
step is considered unavoidable.
v In France grain duties nave been re
duced and taxes remitted to farmers on
account of crop failure.
In Belgium the most sanguine esti
mate is no more than one-third of a
crop, and the English'crop is very late
and therefore uncertain.
All this does rot mean a small dam
.age, which in fact no one would notice
until after harvest but an alarming
failure, giving rise to the most serious
Europe never raises as much wheat
as it needs, and with fair crops during
the last three years it has used up its
reserves and all that India and Ameri
ca could supply.
Now it cannot draw upon its reserves,
and consequently this year it would be
short even if its crops were a fair aver
age and ours as good as we have reason
Onr exporting capacity has greatly
decreased by the increase in population,
and we would not be able to spare for
Europe from four good crop years what
it will be short this year alone.
Under such circumstances it is cer
tain that the true value of wheat is
greater than ever before, and it is as
tonishing that speculators should dare
to bet on low prices.
This, however, explains itself for tho
Duiing,thc four years, from 1S84 to
1 887, the speculation on low prices was
successful on account of the world's
crops being in excess of the demand,
and during the last three years this
same speculation has been earned on
by check and did not result in disaster
only because there were resources to
This success for seven years has made
the speculators think that they have
discovered the philosopher's stone and
that betting o:i low prices can always
be made to earn them money.
