THE POPULIST PART!
It Will Not Die With This
l ' k ' '
WHAT fBRYAN STANDSFOR.
And Why He Has'Rison Above All
V' "'Parties. '
St. Louis,-J uly 24.I snout noiuly
all tiny Thursday at the Peoples party
convention nnd It was one of the
most memorable occasions In political
history. For ten years the party has
beer. organized nnd growing. Slinnld
It riow be absorbed In tho freo coinage
movement? This question was the
paramount Interrogation mark on
every man's face In that convention.
It is the fate of third parties that
they uilsc nnd originate mi Issue
which becomes a dominant question
In national politics. The losue unco
made forces a division of all paitks
on that line and Is carrkul m victory
by the people.
What becomes of the third party?
What became of t ho Free Sollers,,of
the Abolitionists, of the Green
backers? Tito former forced the
shivery Issue to victory nnd died.
TI10 hitter forced the preservation of
the greenback currency and died.
The Populists have- forced the money
question Into the front to the exclu
sion of ull olso but they will not die
lis n party. "Why? Because, having
forced our country to adopt Independ
ent bimetallism, n policy that will
not only increase the inotalllc money
of our country, glv us n natural
money system, but add Incalculably
to the wealth of the nation, we will
next bo compelled to protect our
selves against further centralization
of our increased wealth, or our pres
ent victory shall have been In vain.
That Is really what Mr. Bryan
stands for. Ho stands for the lncotim
tax, for restraint of the highhanded
enroachments of corporate power
through the federul courts; for com
pelling the corporations to pay their
honest obligations to the government
and subject them to the equal and
Just laws of taxation and regulation,
as other persons. A Republican or a
Democrat holding the views Mr.Brynn
docs,and attempting to represent them
within the Republican or Democratic
parties, as now controlled by capital,
corporations and olllclallsm, would bo
at onco sat upon and ejected from the
those parties as a populist or as a peo
ple's mani Ilenco I say the People's
party will not, and cannot die, what
ever its courso of action at St. Louis.
Senator Allen's selection as chairman
of the national Populist convention
was In exposition or this Idea. His
selection by a vote of 768 tof04 was no
Indication that the Populist party is
divided within itself on tho large issuo
of resisting to tho utmost all forms of
centralization of wealth. If tho
peaceful revolution is to proceed that
shall restore to the people their in
alienable rights of control over public
lands, over public franchises and over
the money of our country, It can pro
ceed only upon the hypothesis that
the people aro above party. It Is tho
one pointed fact of our political his
tory that a political party can be
bought. Influenced and corrupted, but
the people cannot.
The restoration of a natural money
Btipply, based on tho possible output
pf tho two precious metals, as against
anyartlflclal system of linance based
on gold bonds or banking coporatlcfis,
Is.theono rallying cry of thornasses
today. It la stronger than any party,
or all parties. It Is the one political
proposition that holds out a ray of
hope to tho American people.
"The breaking up of party lines and
the acceptance utfctlie hands of .the
people's party of the money question
as the paramount Nsue I,- really a
savcre Indictment by the American
people of some of the most consptclnin '
political leaders of the p.ist twenty
years. It -Is In clToct a. .verdict1

an Armenian principality In Asia.
Ho used to send to Susaouh and else
whero, under the pretext of distrib

charged with tho mission of giving

Armenians to attack tho mosque
