People's Party Platform.
First -That In view of the great social, industri
al and economical revolution now dawning upon
the civilized, world and the new and living issues
confronting the American people, we believe that
the One has arrived for a cry stalization o the po
litical reform forces of our country and the form
ation of what should be known as the People's par
ry of the TJclted States of America.
Second That we most heartily endorse the de
mands of the platform as adopted at St. Loni. Mo.,
In 1880. Ocala, FUw. in 1890, and Omaha, Neb , in
1881, by the Industrial organizations theie repre
sented, summarized as follows:
A The right to make and issue money as a sover
eign power to be maintained br the people for the
common benefit. Hence we demand the abolition
of national banks as banks of issue, and aa a substl
nta for national bank notes we 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. Suchnotestobelegaltcn
dex In payment of all debts, public or private and
nch notes, when demanded by the people, shall
be loaned to them at not more than 2 per cent, per
annwip upon non Imperishable products as indi
cated In the sub-treasury plan.
B We demand the tree and unlimited coinage
C We 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 ralzoade and other cor
porations in excess of such as is actually used and
needed by them be reclaimed by the government
and held tor actual settlers only.
D Believing the doctrine of equal rights to all
and special privileges to none we demand that
taxation national, state or municipal shall not
be need to build np one Interest or class at the ex
penes of another.
E We demand that all revenues national, state
or county shall be limited to the necessary ex
penses of the government economically and hon
F We demand a just and equitable system of
graduated tax on Income.
G We 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 does not remove the
anuses now existing we demand the government
ownership of such means of communication and
B We demand the election of president, vice-
president and United States senators by direct
vote of the people.
Recognizing that a close 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 sale government, that the farmers
and laborers of the nation can be trusted with the
rains 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, New York and Bennsylvania. Our mot
to may well maybe "Let thereatest good of the
greatest number be sought."
In view of the fact that Ford county politics
have heretofore been nsed solely and only as a ma
chine to gain office, manipulated by a ling com
posed of leadess of both the old parties, we believe
that si Barm is Imperatively demanded to the end
that the abuses growing out of this nn-Amencan
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.
We condemn the practice of electing men to of
ace whose private affairs prevents them from at
tending to their public duties. We believe that
lection to office carries with it the obligation to
attend to the duties devolving on thoe elected
We, the delegates and alternates composing the
People's Party Mass Convention of Ford county,
do hereby expressly pledge ourselves to an uncom
promising support oi the whole and entire ticket
this day nominated.

The above list ought to be suffiiient
to give you an idea of the kind of men
who compose the People's party, and
what we want, and what we will h.te,
Legislation in the interest of all the
wealth producers in the state.
We are willing to be judged by our
record as we make it, but are not re
sponsible for what the enemies of the
great common people say about us.
We are determined to turn the ras
cals out, and wc will have "A govern

til his beautiful, bald head seemed to

there is plenty of money in the United
States, plenty of it."
If this is true, the nation is suffering
Congestion, you know, in a man,
means that he has all his blood yet, but
it is heaped up, dangerously, in parts
of the body and withdrawn from other
parts. No one desires physical conges
tion, except for his enemies, as it is
very dangerous. No friend of the peo
ple desires financial congestion. But
there are those who can and do pro
duce it Their power to do so is much
greater as the volume of money de
creases. Remedy: Increase the volume of
currency up to the highest safety point
Then the enemies of the people .are
shorn of much of their unholy power.
LOCALITY OF T1IL CANDI
DATES. We dtire In call the attention of the
voters of Ford ci anty to the ihj.i.k r in
which the ra:.d:dair cii the nious
tickets are distributed oter the county.
On the republican ticket, four out oi
the six on the general ticket and both
commissioners are from Dodge City,
and, on the democratic ticket, five out
of the six on the general ticket, one
commissioner, in fact, and the other,
practically, are from Dodge City. On
the People's ticket, four out'of the six
and one of the commissioners are from
the country and nearly every pa:t of
the county is represented.
This needs no comment. We mere
ly desire to state the fact and let the
voters decide as to which ticket best
represents the people.
TO RAILROAD MEN.
A large number of the otcrs of
Dodge City arc railroad men, belonging
to the different brotherhoods and labor
organizations, the object of which is to
resist and protect themselves Ironi the
encroachments and oppressions which
organized capitui is constantly exercis
ing towards labor. To these men, the
People's party especially commends it
Like these labor organizations, the
primary object of the People's party is
to so shape legislation that labor shall
be at least equal before the law with
capital and that the laboring man shall
receive the fruits of his toil. In order
to do this, it seeks to bring within its
ranks all who have a similar object.
The idea may be best illustrated by the
case of a Grand Army corps, which,
when united, can go on and fight bat
tles, win victories and achieve results
that the brigades, regiments and com
panies acting separately never could ac
complish, but simply waste their ener
gies and deplete their own ranks with
out in the least injuring the common
DOWN THE RING.
It is a well known fact that ever
since the organization of Ford county,
a small ring in Dodge City has con
trolled the offices. The nominations on
both sides have been dictated by this
ring and then a slate made up, com
posed of parts of both tickets, and
The same tactics are being pursued
The republican membess of the ring
have no intention of electing B. S. Wil
liams, county treasurer. Neither has
the democratic part any intention of
electing French, sheriff. And we make
the prediction here that these two men
will run very far behind their ticket
This year the republicans are giving
everything else on the ticket for sheriff.
It was known two years ago, aad
freely talked about at that time, that
Beeson would be the republican candi
date ior suenn mis iaii. witn tne un
derstanding that he would receive dem
ocratic support in return for the sup
port that his republican friends gave to
the democratic candidate for sheriff at
that time. It is an open secret that the
ring ticket this fall is Beeson for sher
iff, Slueller for treasurer, Crane for
clerk and Beverly for register of dee.l.
Are the voters of Ford conntv htill
By worshiping the ''Golden Calf
idolatrously, the backsliding Israelites
brought a curse upon them. Yet curse
though itwa?, its entire crnsequences
were inconsiderable as compared with
results of a similar worship of the "yel
low metal" in recent times.
A certhin famous man has said that
''Gold is God's money." He does not
mean that, in the Exchequer of Heav
en, it is taken in and paid out on the
same principles as iu the Exchequer of
England or the Treasury cf the United
Slates; but that it is a beautiful, prec
ious metal, always sought after by men,
and always possessed of great, intrinsic
value. Hence, a peculiar metal, out
rivalling all otheis.
Some facts, as a substitute for the
foregoing poetical nonsense:
The gold of the civilized worltr,
available as money, does not exceed 2
The population of the civilized na
tions is more than one half a billion.
Hence the gold money is less than
$5 per capita.
Banish silver, and you would have a
totally insufficient currency, unjustifia
bly and ruinously small.
Silver was long on a parity with gold
that is, 15 ounces of silver worth one
of gold; according to the, then, propor
tions, stiver was then almost too valua
ble for coinage.
Until 1845, the United States pro
duced, altogether, less than $ a million
of silver and only 244; millions of gold.
The population then was 18 millions.
Gold and silver, all the native pro
duct, would have supplied less that $1.50
The amount which had been coined
was more than seven times the total
Whence was it obtained?
By trade with foreign countries, their
gold and silver bullion and coin were
brought to the United States. Duties
paid on imports gradually put this gold
and silver into the national treasury.
It passed out through the mints, and
became the coined money of the conn-
Or, coinage of both metals being
free, the owners of this foreign coin or
bullion presented it at the mints for
coinage, and took away from the mints
But from 1789 to 18(19,
were permitted to carry on business.
We say permitted, for it is a fact that
no constitutional right could be formed.
States are forbidden to emit "bills of
credit;" yet stale banks did that cry
thing nearly 75 years.
Two, three, four, and even mere
than five, dollars of bank bills were is
sued for one of "specie" (gold and sil
ver) held, or supposed to be held, in
"reserve" by the banks.
Observe, then, that, although the
United Bute?, up to 1848, produced so
little of gold and sijyer, they yet had
nearly $10 per capita of .pecie,
But this was found so far ingnffieff at,
that the state banks were uticonsti.n-
tions, to issne paper currency to supply
the plainly felt want of a larger volume
No sigh escapes us that state bsnk

5. It is thought desirable that Con
gress should enact the national curren
cy bank bill, embracing the general
provisions recommended by the secre
tary in his annual report.
6. It is expected that this action
and legislation will render the making
of the United States demand notes a le
gal tender on their increase beyond the
$50,000,000 authorized in July last
This proposition met, at the hands of
the Ways and Means committee, the
same fate that the offer of January 7th
did. They insisted upon the enactment
of the legal-tender clause, and would
not consent to report a bill providing
for a national bank system.
But the "associated bankers," al
though temporarily defeated, did not,
by any means, give up the contest a

when he was informed that he could

party in the future, to help right mat

In order to force the Alliance voters
back into the old parties, some of the
loan companies have decided not to
place any more money in Kansas lands
until the people stop electing such men
as Peffer and Simpson to congress, in
Texas they demand the repeal of laws
that do not suit London brokers, and
in Kansas, they have decided to starve

The rush for lands in Oklahoma is
like the rush for stocks in Wall street.
For the few who want the land and the
stocks for permanent investment there
are thousands who want to speculate
and get a chance to skin somebody.

On the 28th of January the debate
upon the bill was opened iu the House
by a speech from Mr. E. G. Spauldiuc

In the first place, 1 will refer to the
loan bill passed at the extra session of
Congress, iu July, jn order to show
how we obtained the means to carry on
the government from that time to the
present, and to show how the secretary
or the treasury has performed his duty.
The secretary of the treasury first
borrowed $100,000,000, giving treasury
notes bearing seven and three tenths
per cent, interest, and he next issued
United States bonds at six per cent, in
terest to the extent of $50,000,000 at
the equivalent of par for seven per cent,
bonds, and raided about $44,650,000;
upon such loan a discount of $5,300,
000 was sustained. These were the
best terms that could be obtained, and
were regarded at the time as very favor
able to the government.
This bill, in addition to the fifty mil
lion of demand notes authorized by the
act of July last, authorizes the secre
tary of the treasury to issue, on the
credit of the United States, one hundred
millions of dollars of treasury notes,
not bearing interest, payable to the
bearer at the treasury, or at the office
of assistant treasurer in the pity of New
York, at the pleasure of the United
States, and of such denominations as he
may deem expedient, and not less than
five dollars each; and such notes, and
all other United States notes, payable
on demand, uot bearing interest, here
tofore authorized, are made receivable
for all debts and demands due to the
United States, aud for all salaries, de
mands pwjng by the United States to
individuals, corporations and associa
tions within the United States, and are
also declared lawful money and a legal

The baldheads may find a little com
fort in the fact that that eminent au
thority, the London Lancet, denounces
as false the doctrine that abundant hair
is a sign of bodily or mental strength in
man. It says that despite the Samson
precedent the Chinese are mostly bald,
yet they form the most enduring of
races. The average madhouse furnishes
proof that long and thick hair is not a
sign of intellectuality. The easily
wheedled Esau was hairy, while the
mighty Caesar was bald. Long-haired
men are generally weak and fanatical,
and men with scant hair are the philoso
phers and statesmen and soldiers of the
A series of military tests has been
made in Germany to determine the
speed of bicycles as compared with that
of horses. In covering a distance of
thirty-two miles two cavalry officers
rode against two infantry officers
mounted on bicycles. The latter ac
complished the journey in 315 minutes
and 210 minutes, respectively, while the
two lieutenants on horseback arrived
at their destination seven minutes be
fore the first bicycle rider. Over
course of twenty-five miles the same
result was obtained, the riders arriving
a few minutes in advance of the bicy
clists. In both cases the cavalry officers
only rode at a gallop for the first fifteen
minutes of the journey, while the bicy
clists went at full speed all the way.

be brokeq down and senile in middle
life? What' pleasure is there to him in
the contemplation of his dollars when
the body is weak and the body is
drained of its vigor? But with health
everything is possible. And there

life, a strong pulsating of the heart, a
buoyancy and a joy to live that no
amount of money can buy. It cannot

best gifts. And while nature bestows
these gifts generously, they are never
sold n the market place.

A CITY LUXURY.
Just as the city looks to the country for most of the luxuries used
on its tables, so the country must turn to the city for those conven
iences which are justly termed luxuries for the hard-working house
wife. Gty housekeepers have learned to realia: that to save time is to
is one of the best known city luxuries and each time a cake is used
an hour is saved. On floors, tables and painted work it acts like a
charm. For scouring pots, pans and metals it has no equal. IF YOUR
STOREKEEPER DOES NOT KEEP IT YOU SHOULD INSIST
UPON HIS DOING SO, as it always gives satisfaction and its immense
sale all over the United States makes it an almost necessary article to
any well-supplied store. Everything shines after its use, and even the
children delight in using it in their attempts to help around the house.
