party of Marshall county. The gather

Plymouth, should attend this the last I
meeting of the campaign.
This is the duty of every People's
party man. And while we impress up
on the minds of our populist friends the
necessity of falling into line and mak
ing this a notable occasion, we desire to
extend to everybody a cordial invita
tion to attend this rally w here truth will
be paramount, and misrepresentation
an unknown factor.
The People's party, as a medium for
political education, is tin -rough; they do
not believe in condemning a man be
cause he sees lit to believe differently.
Iut they do believe in trying to bring
to the people the light of reason
in regard to the governmental affairs of
this great nation.
Oxe week from next Tuesday is elec

How will yoMi vote affect the condi
tioh of this co-int rv?
Horn the old parties continue to call
each other '-calamity howlers."
Tin: people's party candidates are all
good honest men, and deserve the sup- j
port of every man who believes in ti nt
Tin: candidates whose names appear
on the people's party ticket this fall, are
all good honest men. and will no doubt
poll a large vote.
Tin: truth of the matter is. both the
old parties are looking out for their po
litical plums, and care very little for the
wants of the people.
T i iei:e are many kinds of bondage in
which men are enthralled. In this great
country there probably is no thralldom
more oppressive than that of party.
Ix speaking of the different candi
dates last week we failed 'to mention
Uenjamin J. Cramer, the people's party
candidate for trustee, who although
47 years of age, has been a resident of
Marshall county for the past 41 years,
lie lias always followed the vocation of
a farmer and is known throughout this
section of the state as a man of sterling
quality, upright, conscientious and
straightforward. Uenjamin J. Cramer
is well qualified to till the otlice for
which he is nominated.
L-A.VT week we failed to mention our
candidate for Justice of Peace. John II.
Hoy was born in Fairfield county Ohio
Oct. 22. is:;i, and removed to Findlay
two months later. Was engineer on the
1. F. YV. A: C. II. 1, lor fifteen years and
enlisted in the army in regiment ITH
Has resided in this county IS years
during which time he has followed farm
ing as an occupation and has resided
in Plymouth four years. He is a man
of sterling qualities good judgement
and habits, and if e'ected would make a
good justice of the peace.
Tin: success of any political party
does not wholly depend upon the prin
ciples laid down in their platform. Nor
do its victories depend upon the elo
quence and convincing logic produced
by its campaign orators. To bring suc
cess to an issue advocated by a party,
needs the support and assistance of
man, yes, and woman, who believes the
principles proclaimed and advocated by
their recognized leaders are right. It is
necessary for every man to work as well
as vote. This, and this alone, will in
time bring success to the party that is
advocating the right principles. These
principles are those that will benefit the
great mass of struggling American citizens.
"Vox Porru Vox iki" is a familiar
cry uttered by the democratic party for
lo these many years, and has been util
ized as a motto on their banners, placed
upon the "outer walls" of the democrat
ic ramparts. J Jut w hen they have se
cured the reins of governmental -affairs,
they forget the Avar cry so cunningly
used in the preceeding campaign.
The immortal James (!. 151aine, who
all fair-minded and unbiased men de
lighted to point to with pride before his i
(k,ath amlwhl, as a ,.iitic-til reformer,
stood head and shoulders above his
party, was a populist on the money
J question. It is amusing to see how the
republican press throughout the cim
j try steers clear of these breakers: and
j while eulogizing the name and memory
'utterance to those memoriable Avoids i
j uttered by him when the light to kill
; silver, came to his notice. Listen to
I his prophetic words:
"I believe that tin struggle now go-
;h,r jn (,is country and in other
money and the establishment of gold as
the sole unit of value, must have a ruin
ous effect on all forms "f property, ex
cept those investments which yield a
fixed return in money. These would be
enormously enhanced in value and
would gain a disproportionate and un
fair advantage over every other species
of property. If, as the most reliable
statistics ailirin, there are nearly 7,00
oxo,UKof coin or bullion in the world
not very unequally divided between
gold and silver, it is impossible to strike
the silver out of existence as money
w ithout results that will prove distress
ing to millions and utterly disastrous to
tens of thousands."
Good Times Fair Wages.
In ISC) I came to Marshall county
and found all prosperity. Everybody
at work at good wags. Common day
laborers received from S2.25 to 82.Ö0
per day, mechanics from $0 00 to ."..")
per day and plenty of work for all, and
cash in hand every night if wanted.
The farmer was getting fair prices
for all his farm products; wheat being
about 82.50 to s2.75 per bushel, farm
hands were fairly paid by the month or
day and had no trouble to get the cash
for their labor when due. Horses and
cattle and hogs bringing quadruple to
day's prices or more.
I had a litt'e house repairing to do,
and almost had to get down on mv
! knees, begging carpenters at sl.oo
painters the same plasterers at .SÖ.Ö0
and 87.00 per day to do the work I re
quired, so busy were they all, and only
by allowing some of the workmen to do
their work at night, could I secure
workmen to linish my buildings at all.
Shortly before the time of Cleveland's
last election I had a day's work at side
walk building to do, and feel safe in
saying that over a score of carpenters
came to me begging that they ought to
be allowed to build that sidewalk, even
at so low a price as 10 cents a day. A
large number of these carpenters beg
ging for work at 75 cents a day, were
those who in ISC") had been begged to
work at a day and had refused to do
it for cash, although they offered to do
the work for 73 cents per day and take
pay in almost any sort of store pay, pro
duce or truck, so badly off for work and
wages were they.
This is the experience of thousands
who have had a little mechanical work
to do within the past dozen years and
it only goes to show, that in ls'T with
our money circulation then at about
$10 per capita and now the contraction
of our currency to about 11 per capita,
silver demonetized and gold made the
monetary standard, and all legislation
of the past thirty years made in the
interest of the gold shark's favor and
against the interest of the masses that
labor - the farmer, the mechanic and in
fact against everybody except the gold
bug or the monopolist, that time could
not be otherwise but hard and suffering
to be seen all over the land, cursed by
such class laws as have been enacted
within the past thirty years.
The gold sharks have secured perfect
control of the leaders of both old parties
andean force such legislation in their
own interest, they may require to keep
their hold on the throats of the people.
With over one half of congress in
both houses made ii of national bank
ers and the other half of which three
quarters of them are corporation law
yers, and not a single farmer in congress,
how can we expect any relief from the
class laws that are cursing the country
of our time. Our taxes are higher to
day with wheat 13 cents, than when
wheat readily brought 2.30 to 2.S0 a
bushel. The salaries of our public of
ficials are double now what they were
when wheat was near .k and there are
more officials; almost three fold.
lothey enjoy being robbed? Do they
expect different laws by forever keep
ing the old parties in office that have
brought such distress to our country?
Shall "we have any chance, to try and se
cure relief from all the class legislation
that lias made our country one of mil
lionaires and tramps to an extent known
to no other country on the globe?
People will cling to the name of a
party long, long after that party of their
first love has lost all its original prin
ciples and represents everything that it
once condemned. Is not this true to a
large extent with many old party sup
porters? Does not old party worship
keep the yoke of class injustice on our
necks, by electing to congress the
bought slaves of monoply, who will for
ever serve their masters, and outrage
the people who elected them?
shall we always allow our party
classes to do our thinking for us
or shall Ave ever think ami act for our
