Keep in the Middle of the Road. No fusion with any political party on earth. VOL. 2, THE SINGLE PLANK IADE. jflfc D, 1 T IDS OX E. YMESS ES HIS VIEWS OX THE SIX CtLE PL.IXK ID E.I. Mr. Editor: It is truly surpi is ing to see how suspicious some men are of others. They are ready to impugn every motive and move made by everybody out themselves, especially, is this so in political matters." I was particularly im pressed with this idea at last Satur day *s meeting when I ol served how gome of those present raised their hands in holy horror whenever it was suggested that the next politi cal campaign by thi Peoples party should be fought on the financial issue. They wanted the Omaha Elatform in its entirety, nothing iss would answer. When I cast my vote in 1876 for that noble phi lanthropist. Peter Cooper, for presi dent. I believed that in a few years we would see the reforms we were advocating enacted into laws. But as the reform ideas gained strength, the demands increased until in the Omaha platform, we have enough reforms demanded to cover the Western Hemisphere. We have arrived at that stage where it is no longer a question of making de mands. I ut one of securing votes to enact our demands into laws In order to do this, we must trim our platform. The free coinage of gold and silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, will not only stimulate our mi ning industries, but will increase our circulating medium; besides placing ue on an equa 1 ity in the foreign markets with silver using countries, an advantage they pos sess over all single geld standard countries in exchange, which is the difference between the coin value and bullion value of silver, or about one hundred per cent in favor of those countries. The abolition of the national banks —those wreckers of the business industries of the country, those vampires sucking the life blood of the nation. The issuing of all paper money by the government and in sufficient quan tities to enable the people to trans act business on a cash 'oasis. The establishing of Postal savings banks—that the people may know where they deposit their money they will get it when they call for it and not be at the mercy of "the best banking system the world ever knew.'* The indications are that both of the old parties will at their next national convention declare for the single gold standard—not that a majority of either of those parties are opposed to silver, but a great many who favor silver and would like'to attend the convention Will be prevented for want of means.

Feb. 5. —The most [caustic utterances heard in the .Senate sine-.- sensational speech was that of Vest dem of Missouri today, arraigning Secre tarj of agriculture Morton. Vest referred derisively to "a colossal intellect dealing with cabbages." He severely eritized the practice of furnisuiug costly flowers from the government greenhouse foi recept ions at the exectutive mansion. TheSenatoi said. ".Thedemocrat ic party has l>een most unfortunate not only as to its international dis cords, but also in the fact that the devil owed a grudge and has paid it in the secretary of agricul ture. The secretary has put the democratic party in antagonism to the agricultural interests of the party. The trouble is that he is a monomaniac on the gold stand ard." Vest closed with a remark, bly sarcastic and bitter peroation. He referred to the useless seeds which it w: s asserted the secretary had propet ly refused to buy.. * 'But" added the senator, "there was ope seed not mentioned. It ''was he produced smiling maliciously, "the aurefer feniculum canes Mortonae, or in plainer words. Morton's gold den dogweed.

He has been busy the past week in preparing books for his assistants which will aid mate ially in accuracy and saving time. We believe he has made an honest sinceiH officer for the people and commend him for the same. The bank as well as individuals have found there was no trifling to be done aud when they refused to give him a statement the first two years of his official term, he simply brought them to time, and had the commissioners did their part as well the bank would be sharing their part of the burden of taxes. a E.
