that Secretary Root wonld be

as a btaunch and valuable recruit
to tho ranks of the anti-gold
standard Senators, who are preparing
for a long aud hard fight in) tho Senate
against the gold standard bill, which
Mr. McKinley has found it ao easy to
jam through the House.
Tno Republican speeches in the
House, latt week, bavo contained lota
of gush about ''Republican prosperity"
and "sound money," but very little
pruieo of any portion of the gold standard
bill, whioh will, if it becomes a law,
put tho control of the finances of the
country in tho hands ot the bankers,
enabling them to contract or expand

Representative Cochran, of Missouri,
in an able speech against the McKinley
gold bWndard bill, presented figures
showing that there is not enough gold
iu tho world to do the business of the
world, and declared that the importation
of gold to pay for the surplus crops
exported to supply tho failure of crops
abroad, bad quickened trade and produced
the prosperity of whioh the Republicans
boasted, and warned the Republicans
that when the stock of gold
declined, aa he believed it was bonnd to
do, thu prosperity of to-day would
crumble like a bouse of cards. Representative
Sims, of Tonn., in bis speech
against the gold bill, call-.d attention
to a very important fact that while

Philippine flag accompanied the U. S.
Cruisers Concord and Raleigh to Sublg
Ray, in Juno 1808, to aid in compelling
the Spanish force tosurrendor, asks for
legitimate information and should be
adopted. If these reports aro false, tho

opportunity to officially say so, but no
such gladness is manifested. On the
contrary, Mr. Pettfgrew's resolution is
to bo smothered, not answered.

The New Finance BUI.
The Republican caucus committee has
at last prepared a bill for passage which
la supposed to embody the sentiments of
at least a majority of members of the
party who will hold down seats in this
congress. Tho bill is very sweeping in
its nature, being in this respect decidedly
different from other attempts at
purely financial legislation which the
Republican party baa made during tbo
last few years. Whether it will receive
the support of all Republican congressmen,
remains to bo aeon.
The enacting clause of the bill provides:
"That the standard nnlt of value
shall, as now, bo the dollar, and shall
consist of 25 8-10 grains of gold nine-tenths
fine, or 23 22-100 grains of pure
gold, being the one tenth part of the
eagle." Thus, the party which in 1800
declared for the restoration of bimetallism
by international agreement, now
eeeksvto provide for the permanent establishment
of the gold standard by independent
action. In 1803 tho Republican
platform declared that, "the
American people, from tradition and interest,
favor bimetallism." Now the party
has forgotten all American traditions
and interests and has undertaken to fix

Farmers and the Trusts.
Do the farmers realize that t(ie Republican
party proposes to keep the
trnsts in power?
Realizing tbis.do they not also reslize
that they aro taxed by the trusts much
more heavily than by the Government
and that to vote tho Republican ticket is
to vote a oontinnance and au increase
of this tax?
Take the matter of steel nails. Last
year,bofore the trusts were fully organized,
the farmer sold' bis wheat for 05
cents k basbol and bought a keg ot
nails, needed on the farm, for SI. 05.
How is it this year, when the Republican
po,rty has enooqraged, fqtjtered
and protected the nail trust?
The farmer cellj hlswhoat for 02 cents
a bushel and pays $3.85 for a beg of
naild. Somehow or another this farmer
has been cheated cut ofthreo bushels
and a bait of wheat. Who did; it?
The Republican patty, w,h!oh upholds
tho nail trust,
Another illustration of just how these
lovely Republican trnats work, is given
by the Cincinnati as follows:
Tbe worklngman, earning $9 a week,
who lobt year put a tin roof on hia front
porch, paid 1 3 45 for the box of tin, and
had SO 55 left out of his week's wagea.
This year when bo put a trust tin root
on hia book porch ho had to pay $4.85
for tho box of tin and had $4.15 left out
of hisweek's earnings. That man has
no doubt discovered who stole the
With these facts in view, what are
the farmers and the workingmen going
to do about tbe.matter?
It would seem, the course of wisdom
for them to voto against tho Republican
party, which is taxing them to the very
limit of endurance.
They know that they can hope for
nothing but a ooutinuanco of this taxation
aa long as the Rfpublioiu party remains
in power. Will thev continue to
aid the oppressors and to place the yoke

The testimony of Wm. H. Grifllo, a
tin plate manufacturer, beforo tho industrial
commission is summoned up as
follows by au exchange:
"He said sinoe tho tin plate trust bad
been organized the price of tin plate
bad advanced from $3.00 to $4 65 per
hundred; that neither tho advanco
in wages nor raw material justified snoh
a prloe. At 13.60 a hundred there bad
been 20 per cent profit in the business,
under present conditions $2.84 would bo
a profitable price. Notwithstanding
this enormous advance in price, tbo
quality of tinware is becoming poorer.

that tbo coating of tin is so thin that
they cannot nso tho cans. Ont of 272

The Old Year mocks me with a sigh,

But here's a breath that makes me bold
The radiant, glad New Year draws nigh.
Hope's sunshine lights the morning sky
What Joys may not this New Year hold?
What dear, unfathomed witchery;
What undreamed wealth of fairy gold?
Then let the mocking Old Year die?

Ills shroud of snow about him fold
With other dead things let him He.
The blithe New-Comer makes rue bold;
