Dawn : Truth sometimes comes from un expected sources. Mr. Chauncy M. DePew, on a recent occasion, made an utterance well worth attention. It embodies a great truth, one of immense weight in the present pos ture of public affairs. For thirty three years, the money power, un der republican and democratic rule, has attained gigantic proportions, and under the nursing of our serv ants at Washington, threatens to become huger still, more than u giant. Mr. Dej>ew the pos sibilities incident 10 concentrated wealth: "Fifty men in these United States have it in their power, by reason of the wealth which they control, t"» come together within twenty-four hours and arrive at an understand ing, by which every wheel of trade and commerce may l>e stopped from revolving, every avenue of trade blocked, and every electric key struck dumb. Those fifty men can paralyze the whole country, for they can eontio? the circulation of the currency, and create a panic whenever they wish." A pregnant fact, not coming from 4 People's party man, "a crank." *a lunatie v " "a fool," but from the head of a great railroad corporation and one of the Vanclerbilt right hand bowers. Here is food for thought, so in tenge that it ought move to right action. Note; thene almost omni potent possibilities are in the hands °f the insignificant number of fifty wen. Our 70,000,000 people over burdened and our vast ramified in dustries wrecked by FIFTY men! not by arms, but by cunningly de vised plottings, the unholy use of their wealth., much of it, no more honestly obtained than are the pro ceeds of highway robbery. If such are the possibilities at taching to FIFTY men, what are the possibilities residing in the en tire shy lock brood, national bank bondholders and, their kinsmen. 311 iniquity* THE DAWN. ELLENSBURG, WASH., SATURDAY, NOV. 16, 1895. A very important question which comes homo to every man who i:- not within the magic. circle.

' MiJy at the ballot box, and not there, unless there l-c right action. Our evils and possibilities of' grc.ttcr . evils have come upon us! through tlx 1 iiiu 1 legislation of both j old parties. No relief can he hoped ! for from either. Both are corrupt! and del .niched. We need new men I from the loins of the people, in this, j the crisis hour of the Republic.! when perils encompass liberty and human rights are converted as stubble. Vote for republicans, you vote ;i cord around your neck; vote for democrats, you vote to thrust a a dagger through your heart. Parties are organization based on j certain enunciated measures, and! when mis-carried, they cease to be, cf any practical use. They become' mere machines run for pelf and plunder and should die.

Generally speaking, the result is a bout as we expected. The demo crats bit the dust and the republi cans are on top. As the Populists are obliged to get their returns by slow freight, the result cannot be learned for some time. The party has made good gains in all states. OHlO:—Coxey ran 100 votes a head of his ticket in his own coun ty, while the party made wonderful gains ranging from 20 to 000 per cent. It expected that the Coxey vote on oiliciai returns will reach fully 00,000. In many localities the democrats wore so badly scared that to make certain of Coxey's de feat. they supported and openly worked for the republican ticket. KANSAS:—The Populists made handsome gains, carrying 20 coun ties ,md elected three Judges. The democrats and republicans fused in a number of counties. The A. P. A. element voted with the republi can party. MISSISSIPPI:—The silver dem ocratic plurality tor state officers is estimated at .V), 000; large Populist gains. S EBRASK A: —The people of Xe braska stood by Populism faithful ly, giving Maxwell, candidate for Supreme Judge, a very lage vote. lOWA:—The party did exceed ingly well in lowa, polling a vote of fully 50,000.
