Your [>arty record is too strong, it seems to have increased the de mand for sulphur in the lower re gions. .Justice, where art thou? Theice is an element in the Peo pJe's party that believe in policy. They believed it would be policy to nominate certain men for ofHce regardless of the expressed will of the people composing the pary. They believed it would, be policy to trample under foot and destroy all who could or would not coincide with them. They b-ow believe ?t would lie policy, in view of the fact that the Populist Legislators cannot elect a Senator, to join hands with the bel ter element of the republican party and elect a free silver Senator. Doubtless they r f.the policy men) would like to name the man. During ou? twenty years op re form work,, we brave noticed that policy iiven have been the curse of every reform movement. They meet in secret conclave and clandestinely work with the open and avowed enemy of the Populist principles, A "policy worker 77 is the Judas of- every reform party. We are fighting by a principle and if that principle is worth any thing.. it Is worth fighting for to a finish. Policy, is the* work of Satan. The rank and lile of the People's party, the honest men whom the lust of office cannot sway, who ktaow the right do it without fear or favor, demand that our Leg islators enter Snto no entangling al liances with either the republican or democratic legislators, for the purpose of efoctiwg r, sslver r<?> publican U. S. Senator. Every compromise made by our party or its Legislators with the enemy only lowers our Sag. The expressed will of the People's party is that we stand squarely on our platform. Let our People's party Legislator..*" make no confes sions!' It is snnece&pary! It is dangerous It is unwise I It is unjust! It would be mockery! It would l>e destruction!' It would be unreasonable I Let the republicans make the con cessions if there is any to be made. The republican party is not hon est in its advocacy of free silver. Their record is ample proof of this asserton. j Make no en nee unions to any party! He that maketh concessions and supporteth a republican, silver, or no silver, for U. S. Senator, is not a Populist from principle and should be relegated to the ranks of a pri vate citizen, very private too! We don't believe the Legislature contains - a Populist traitor, or one that will in any way, make any concessions to that old mother of h;i riots. FTo nvver, if there he ainch, they had heller mule safe their goods and chat tels at home, and when the Legisla ture *h all hare mSjfmrned. tool: for new fields and greener pasture. The PEOPLE will not have their RIGHTS TAMPERED WITH!!! On last Fiinday afternoon R. E. Punlap, State Evangelist of the Christian Church, held forth for 2 hours in the M. II Church of this place, on the A. P. A. Mr. Dunlap x s State Vice-President of that in stitution. He told a great many things that people had already either read, or heard from others. He was very extravagant in a great many of his statements—in fact, about as much so as he was a few days in a private conver sation, when he stated that the av erage wages paid the the laboring man in the U. S. for the last thirty years was .+'s. per day, (including both skilled am? unskilled labor.) In the same conversation, he said the laboringrr/an of the IJ» »S. was wholly responsible sor his present condition—there was not one but could have had a home to-day, if he had not squandered his wages. One of the statements made by the lecturer, was that owing t*> a let ter written to Jeff Davis by the Pope, one hundred and forty thou sand Catholics deserted from the Union Army. He had better have the war records'- destroyed before he makes any more statements of that kind. He further stated, that ninety per cent, of all the fallen women, commenced their downward e<*reer at the,' Confessional. We never interviewed that class of persons to find out what were their religious views, in fact, we al ways supposed they had none. His whole address was an appeal to the prejudice of his hearers. It was more becoming a political demagogue than a christian minis ter and is not calculated to add anything to the church he repre sents. A minister of the gospel should be very careful to adhere strictly to the truth, it he does not, his clerical garb will not protect. him. Tim spectacle of a minister employed to go over the State to do evangelistic work and, while bo em ployed, and paid by his church, de liver such addresses, and that too on Sunday. lit is generally supposed (but it re quires a big stretch of the imagine tion when one sees the attitude of the different churches toward each other) that all churches are work ing for the Same object—the conver sion of sinners and winning of sonls to Christ. But after the addresses we have 1 listened to by preachers of different denominations and, especially, the , one last Sunday, where a dirty po litical organization seemed to have complete control over the speaker, we are led to conclude: it is no wonder the country is filling with infidels. There seems to be more ehurchanity thru) Christianity. | The Orangemens Association has f been useti for years by England to ; stir up a bitter hatred in Ireland j between the Protectant and Catho lics that she may be the better ena bled to control them in their divi ded condition and rob them. That is the cause of Irelands con dition to-day. The A. i\ A. is the Orangemens Association transplanted in Ameri ca under a different name but by the same class of persons and for the same purpose that the Orange mens Association was placed ip Ireland, viz. to create a bitter ha tred detween Protestants and Catho lics, while the people are being rob bed. One of the principles on which this government is founded is the right to worship God according to the dictates of one's conscience. This, the A. P. A. denies to all except Protestants. If we rfruni the right to interpret the teachings of Christ, according to our views we must accord the same privilege to others. The A. P. A. does not accord that right. The A. P. A. or American Pro tective Association, a name calcula ted to appeal to the patriotism of American citizens, is no friend of religion, or our American institu tions. It is strange this bigoted old word organization should find ft lodgement in this country. Any intelligent citizen who gives contemmce to this un American so ciety will have cause to regret it.
