When the qnes | tion was squarely put to Mr, Tel | ler—would the silver Senators de ' liberateiy prevent the passage of !an appropriation bill with a rider ! providing for the issue of l>onds or other financial legislation objec tionable to them?—he replied in the most positive tone: tk They would. We believe that all the present developments are | a part of a plan which had its ori -1 gin when Cleveland entered upon i his second administration to put ! the country on a gold basis and i create a permanent debt for the in i vestment of the capitalist class in I this country. We do not propose ' to see this done, even if it should result in an extra session. We no fears of an extra session, and no threats in tbat line can disturb us. I We should certainly fight an ap propriation bill, with such a rider, just as vigorously as any other bill, and you cannot make that state ment too strong." . _____— There bas been no end of talk a bout the alleged remarks of a south ern Senator to August Belmont, the American agent of Rothchilds, Keep in the Middle of the Road. ELLENSBURG, WASH., FEB. 9, 1895. ROBERT A. TURNER, EDITOR. | who came to Washington to talk a r bout needed financial legislation. After Mr. Beloiont had given the Senator his idea of what onght to be done—those who desire to know what his idea was may find it in j Cleveland's special message which was sent to Congress last 31onday — the Senator is reported to have I said: "Mr. Belmont, you are a very rich man. Yon own a great many 1 government bonds; now let me tell ! you something. We, in the South, own a great deal of cotton, and I cotton is not worth 50 cents on the ! dollar, to-day. Now, we do not propose that your bonds shall be worth more than our cotton/' I If that conversation really occur red it is not surprising that Mr. : Belmont did not remain in Wasfa i ington. ' Few people who have not stud ied one of the annual reports of the t Public Printer have any idea of what an immense establishment the Government Printing office is. It costs $125,000 a year to run the Congressional Record; more , than 81,000,000 to pay for the books and pamphlets, mostly re | ports, turned out every year. ? In addition to the printed mat ter, the office turns out every year ; something like 350.000 blank books. 1 Three of these blank books are made annually for the names, ad dresses, and accounts of the Sena tors and Representatives with the ! government. Each of these books has 1,200 pages, weighs 85 pounds and costs to produce $65. It is claimed that no such blank books are made anywhere else. i Last year the bindery used 53, 000 sheep skins, 3,000 Turkish goat , skins, known as "morocco," and 100.000 square feet of Russian leather, which is made from cow. hide, besides other binding materi al. NO. 28. Ingalls' Verification. "We are accustomed to speak of this as the land of the free and the home of the brave. It will soon be the home of the rich and land of the slave. A financial system un der which more than one-half of the enormous wealth of the country, derived from the bounty of nature and the labor of all, is owned by a little more than 30,000 people, while 1,000,000 American citizens, able and willing to toil, are home less tramps, starving for bread, re quires adjustment. A social sys tem which offers to tender virtuous and independent women the atler native between prostitution and suicide as an escape from beggary is organized crime, for which some day unrelenting justice will de mand atonement and explanation. Mr. President, the man who loves his country and the man who studies her history will search in vain for any natural cause for this appalling condition."

The strikes vote the re publican ticket.—Tribune, San Jose. And did you ever think, my friend, that these people who "strike and vote the republican ticket," are the real force that is choking the nation to death? We pity them because of their suffering condition. We would help them out, but they have de stroyed our substance. We would lead them to better methods, but they resolve to perish rather than help—keep polities out of the labor union. But how easily these poor wretches could change the condi tions!— State Guard.
