ROBBING The principal aim of the popo crats in the present campaign is an endeavor to make the farmer be lieve that as a class he has been the most discriminated against. Yet the proposition is an untrue one. Go into the homes of any class of citizens laboringbusiuess or other since the beginning- of this agitation for a change of mon etary standards and there you will find greater distress than is pre valent in the home of the average husbandman. That the price of -wheat, and other agricultural pro ducts, has not decreased on account of the "crime of 1873" is best provea by the following-compilation of Chicago prices in periods of five ears, and they should be carefully preserved and flashed upon the deluded victims of this free silver fallacy. Chicago is taken as a basis, as that was and is our principal market. The figures are those given in the market quota tions upon the dates given, and were the current ones paid by com mission men: No. 2 wheat 1871 to 1875 inclusive, average price 91 cents; 1876 to 1880, same, $1.04; 1881 to 1885, same, $1.00; 1886 to 1890, same, 73 cents; 1891 to 1895, same 71 cents; from 1871 to 1880, inclusive, average price 97i cents: from 1S81 to 1895, inclusive, aver age price 81 K cents. No. 2 corn 1871 to 1875, average 44 cents; 1876 to 1880, same 38 cents; 1881 to 1885 same, 57 cents, 1886 to 1890, same. 37 cents; 1891 to 1895, same, 45 cents; from 1871 to 1880, average price 41 cents; from 18S0 to 1895. average price 46J cents. No. 2 oats 1871 to 1875, inclusive, aver 34 cents; 1876 to 1880, average 27 cents; 1881 to 1885, average 34 J cents; 1S86 to 1890, average 25J cents; 1890 to 1895, average 30 cents; average price from 1871 to 18S0, in clusive 30i cents: lrom 1881 to 1895, same, 30 cents. In contrast with the above here are the figures upon a few of the articles which the farmer has to buy: Farm wagon in 1895 for $55, in 1871 he paid $100 to S110: spring wagon in 1895 for $65, in 1871 from $125 to $150; corn cul tivator in 1895 for $16; in 1871 he paid $35; sewing machine in 1895 for $25; in 1871 he paid $55: barbed -wire in 1877 was 3 cents per pound, in 1871 it was 13 cents; linseed oil, wholesale, in 1895 for 33 cents per gallon, in 1871 wholesale price 75 cents; shingles in 1S95 for $2 per thousand, in 1871 he paid $4 for the same. These statistics might be extended indefinitely and yet they would only show that the tiller of the soil has not been unduly dis criminated against, but on the other hand has met rather more than his share of reward in the struggle incident to human life from the time when God first or dained that by the sweat of man's "face he should earn his daily bread. Mr. Manley said just-before the election that there were 80,000 re publicans in Maine, their largest vote, that in 188S, having bean 79.401. The natural inference now is that the state is full of dem ocrats who know when the honor of the country is assailed and are quick to resent it, Lieut. Gov. Sheehan states the case in an apt and forcible way -when he says that no law has yet been able tc make all men honest; but no law should compel them to be dishonest." Aud it is safe to predict that the American people will not decide in favor of such a method of doing busines. AFTER-the election the curbstone silver orator who travels with a pal, a pretended gold man, will- revert to his origional vocation as assist ant to Peter Funk auctioneer, or half partner in a shell game. If the Bryan party is the demo cratic party it is treating with con tempt the only man whom it elected president in thirty years, whom it nominated three times; who led it to victory twice, and once to com plete control of all departments of the government. It is entirely reasonable to maintain that the Bryan party is new and will die young. Arkansas is a little state with neither savings banks nor building associations. In 1892 the state had one bank, with 844 depositors. By the time the state had aided in electing and inaugurating a demo cratic president the savings bank was gone. The alleged democratic majority would be impossible in a state where labor made savings out of its pay. Philadelphia Press. o - Botjrke Cocran spoke in Omaha, but made no allusions to "being in an enemy's country." It is only the genuine Bryanite who seeks to array section against section and class against class. It should be said, however, that to Bryan's credit that he has tried to explain this un fortunate allusion, but it would be .more to his patriotism if his speeches had less in them cultivat ing the passions of his hearers, Sixth district populists are put ting on a bold but gloomy front and pretend to believe that Judge Green will be elected to congress, but down in their hearts they know better, and there are many of them who will even be glad when Cadj's election is announced. There are a great many populists as well as some other people, who think that a political candidate ought not to play 4,cholly hoss" with the judi ciary. Kearney Hub. When "the great crime of 1873" was enacted.the statistics show the United States had just $774,000,000 in circulation. In 1895 this same oppressed and down-trodden people had $2, 217, 000, 000; but owing to free trade, tariff for revenue, and free silver excitement, it was piled away. The plain thing to do is to start that $2,217,000,000 on its rounds. It can be done by opening up the nation's workshops and giving the millions work; and in no other way. Inter Ocean. THE PLAIN PEOPLE." Bryan's Absurd Efforts to Create Class Dis tinctions In America. The talk about the plain people that has just emanated from the Bryan na tional campaign committee, and is of ten heard from Bryan himself and his supporters, is ridiculous or mischievous, or both. It is an attempt to create a class that does not exist in this country and to divide American citizens by lines which are fraudulent in the case of those who make the distinction and imaginary in those who accept it There is no "plain people" class in this coun try. It would be interesting to learn how those who are glibly using the term define its meaning. The truth is that, if there are plain people, they per vade all classes, or all classes that have tho spirit of Americanism in them. There are people of various degrees of intelligence and of wealth, and of different occupations with a view to earning a living and doing their work in the world, but there is no class which has a monopoly of "plainness. " Illiterate people are not plainer than intelligent people. Men who wear ready made clothing have no claim to be called plain above those who order clothing made for them by tailors. A small in como does not imply a man plain abovo another who has a larger one. Boston Herald. Farmers Whoso Farms Aro Prosperous. There aro a great many prosperous farmers today in spite of low prices. They aro farming farmers. There are others who do not prosper. They are largely the political farmers. The reason is this: The successful farming faimers have been studying the most economical methods of production, the most profit able varieties of farm products and tho changing opportunities offered by the market, while tho political farmers have studied "Coin's Financial School" and the question how free coinage would give them double prices for what they would have laised if their financial studies had not absorbed so much of their time and attention. Candid reflec tion will convince them that the remedy urged by the freo coinage men, being based upon a false diagnosis, will not only cure but immensely aggravate the trouble complained of. It is a case of jumping from the frying pan into the fire. Carl Schurz. What We Need. It is not an increase in the volume of money which is the need of the time, but an increase in the volume of busi ness; not an increase of coin, but an increase of confidence; not more coin age, but a more active use of the money coined; not open mints for the unlim ited coinage of tho silver of the world, but open mills for the full and nnre stricted labor of American working men. William McKinley in His Letter of Acceptance. The Contradictory Popocrat Ticket. Can you get any reform by electing Bryan and Sewall? Don't get in front of the wagon. Sewall stands for tho monopolistic interest, the same interest that McKinley stands for. He is a banker, a railroad king and a tool in the hands of the capitalist. Sewall is the contradiction of everything that Bryan is. He has no place on the plat form. Tom Watson of Georgia. TOED Uf APE WWOEDS EVENTS OCCURRING IN ALL SECTIONS' SUMMARIZED.
