Ed. 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
"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.

The election is over, and a whole
lot of people appear surprised.
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

estimated at .V), 000; large Populist

lOWA:—The party did exceed
ingly well in lowa, polling a vote
of fully 50,000. The vote in 1894
was 34,1'0T.

is claimed, made a clean sweep of
