WITH TRUMPET TONGUE.
The People Have Wpoken. aad Thrlr
The Toice of the people is tbe voice of
Ood. Weary and patient and suffering
tbe masses nay become, depending upon
hope as a means of relief, but when the
relief is tardy the ends of justice are
sought for in the swifter channels.
The republ can pitrty has been lavish
in promises, but it has been slow in ful
fillment. Not that many in its ranks are
not pained at the truth, for they are; but
the bosses, tbe managers, the wbippers
in, the spoilsmen have been reckless and
bold to the verge of defiance. Nay,
even defiance itself has been openly in
dulged in, and perhaps the most familiar
instance at the present moment is in regard
to the extortionate rates of high taxation,
planned by a few to rob the many under
tbe cloak of necessity and tbe sanction of
law. When told that the people could
bear these burdens no longer; that in
stead of their Decerning lighter yearly
they were growing daily wovee; that a
reign of greed and reckless rule must give
way to the demands of justice when all
these criet were going up asking redress.
the venal conqueror still rode on with
majestic strides and bolJly told tbe cry
ing masses that ibelr demands would not
be redressed. They were told, too, that
they did not understand their own neces
si'ie; that the management of their af
fairs must be left in tbe hands of a few.
and that these few would manage every
thing to suit themselves, irrespective of
tbe wsnts of those with whom they were
dealing. It was a bold and brat.'n stand
to take to tell the masses the deed is
done, you have no redress. "ton de
mand some proof of our action; we have
none to give. It is enough for you to
believe without knowing. We are called
your servants, but you are slaves. Tours
not to reason why, but like tbe patient
ox plod on .
Thus went on tbe victors with band
aged eyes. When warned that oppres
sion must cease they shouted back, help
yourselves you cannot. We have gained
our point. Ton are at our mercy, and
thus you remain for years to come. Your
taxes are high. So let it be. Tbe trib
ute must be paid. Even should the na
tlon's voice be beard through tbe peo
ple's representatives its clamoring force
will be checked by an opposing one which
will support our theory.
Knowing these things should their be
any wonderment that tbe people should
resent tbe continuance of tbe system? In
our own midst is it any wonder that par
ty fines should he swept aside and the
people should demand a hearing? Is it
any wonder that Mr. Cable should he
asked to assume the stewardship of tbe
people's affairs when Mr. Oest bad
proven himself so inefficient?
The new order of things will grow.
