THE WEEKLY DAWN.
OUR MOTTO: KEEP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD.
ELLENSBURG, WASH., SEPTEMBER 15, 1894.
THOMAS CARLYLE'S PREDICTION.
▼ • * wnmnwmnimiMiminn«MiHii>iiw ** * »
The Republic west of us will have its trial period, its dark
est of all hours. It is traveling the high road to that direful
day. And this scourge will not come amid famine's horrid
stride, nor will it come by ordinary punitive judgments.
It will be when health is intact, crops abundant, and the
munificent hand open, Then so-called statesmen will cry
"over-production," the people will go to the BALLOT-BOX
amid hunger and destitution but surrounded with the glitter
of SELF-RULE and RATIFY BY HIS BALLOT the
monstrous falsehood "over-production, uttered by mis-states
and vindicated by the fsame ballot, che infamous lie, over
production, thrown upon the breeze by a servile editor
through a corrupt press.
And this brings ruin upon his country, serfdom upon him
self, and oppression upon his children.
Ellenensburg 1 ward. W. O. Ames.
