Mr. Owen's speech was fair and cour

of the Ianting kind which the majority
of people expect from Popuhstic oratois,
but on the contiary conservative and
reasonable. He appealed to the better
sympathies of his audience and did not

The speaker also touched some upon
the question of national banks and then
alluded to the charge that the Populists
were advocates of lawlessness. Here he
grew eloquent and said. ''It is not so

have tc fear as the anarchy of wealth, not
the lawlessness of poverty, but the law
lessness of wealth. The greatest strike
of all time was when the money lords

Not finding anything else to lay at the
dooi of Jno. A. Johnson in his candida
cy for the senate, his subtle enemies have
started the story that he is a sympathizer
with the A. P. A. The wickedness of
this accusation lies in its utter falsity.
Mr. Johnson never has, does not to-day
and never will be a symhathizer with A.
P. A. movements. It is not his nature,
and he has fought that organization in
hi3 newspaper as few other editors have
dared to for the simple reason that he
believes it to be narrow, selfish and Un
American. We differ from Mr. Johnson
in politics, but we do not believe in un
justified abuse. Thafsr what these char
ges are and their sole object is to preju
dice the minds of honest voters against
their best interests. If Mr. Johnson's
enemies have no other method of defeat

they had better retire from the field of
public life. They are the men whom the

Senator Peterson another knock-out last

does not mean that Senator Peterson can
not run for the office. It means, howev

make the run. In his latter statement
