We suppose they think this is true; but. on the other hand, can they afford to leave such papers unsupported? It is your fight we are making more than our own. We have counted the cost and expect to light it out on this line while God gives us life and strength. But it is discourag ing to see such apathy on the part oi those whose battle we are fight ing. More of our income comes from men who do not believe as we do than from you who do —proba- bly three to <>ne. This is the time of Jill times when reform papers should i>e supported and circulated. During the next live years tlx* fate of the American Republic will be settled for weal or woe. And vet you are not doing anything to con vert your neighbors, and some even neglect, to hold up the hands of those who are advocating your principles. It is safe to say that not one-half of the I'opulist voters in this county are subscriber* to The Dawn. If every Populist vo ter in Kittitas county would sub scribe for The Dawn and pay in advance, I could and would make it the largest paper in tho county. Can t you, my dear reader, do something towards getting a new subscriber? Every one counts. I know that times are hard and money very scarce; but 50 cents will pay for the paper a year. It seems to us that this paper is worthy of your hearty support. Will you help it to do good? It wants readers among those who have not as yet seen the truth as! we do. Will you help yourselves? I MEETING OF THE COMMITTEE. The People's Pnrtv County Central Commit tee meets regularly on the Second Saturday la each month fit 1:30 p. m., ut Wood's Harness Shop.

Chairman. • We do not believe that it would ibe wise for the People's party na | tional convention to make a single plank platform. The Omaha plat form —land, money and transpor tation, is just what we need, in our estimation. We have made all our gains as a party on that platform, and if it was good enough for the j past, it ought to be good enough for j the present. Besides, when you be j gin trimming your platform to suit J the ideas oi this faction or that | faction, you virtually concede that ' you have heretofore held to certain ideas that were unsound. We think the convention should send out the cardinal principles of the Omaha platform—land, money and transportation—and make a vigor ous campaign on that line. If yon drop the land plank and remain silent on that question, you will lose votes, for a nation of people without homes is a nation of slaves and serfs, without any pride, nut even one spark of independence, therefore not good citizens for the reason that they have no homes to j defend. Then, if you remain silent ion the government ownership of j railways and telegraph, you will j lose votes again, from the very fact . that no less than 1,000,000 railway I employes to-day are with us heart i and soul on that issue. Again, our agitation oi the cardi nal principles—land, money and transportation, has been such as to compel Congress and, even the U. 8. Senate to recognize and discuss our demands, and to-day, our views on those planks are endorsed by the ablest men in America, and not only endorsed, but demanded, then why surrender such great demands for the sake of making a platform that will suit a comparatively small faction of voters outside the reform forces. If the silver men cannot endorse our caidinal principles, cannot stand on them during a campaign, what will they do in re gard to them if our party should be successful this year on a single issue? They will claim their part of the victory and will present themselves in such shape as to for ever crush out all other reforms if they so desire. No, personally, we say, stand by the land, money and transportation questions, then we are right and it is better to be right and defeated, than be wrong and victorious. THE PRESS FUND.

No t'Lass of persons laboring for I the cause of humanity do more 1 earnest work or encounter more dis [ heartening difficulties than the cdi- I tors of Populist papers, yet they | continue to battle without com i plaint or reward.

If there actually exists an ordi nance against fast driving on the streets, it should be euforced re* gardless of whom it hits or hurts. The city marshal is supposed to en force the law and if he wilts and re fuses by word or action to enforce every letter of the law, letthe coun cil declare a vacancy and proceed to elect a man that will do his whole duty regardless of whom it hurts. There has been considerable kick ing against Sheriff Stinsou, for al lowing prisoners to escape from the County .jail. While the prisonaers enjoy a few hours free dom, we notice they are hack in jail when wanted. If the kickers want to kick, we refer them to Stinsou's predecessors in office, and the records will reveal more pris oners escaped from each of the respective republican aud democrat ie sheriffs than ever from Stinson. Three or four of them were never heard of again. We are willing to compare records at any time. Reader, does you k merchant pat ronize The Dawn's advertising col umns? If not, please ask him why. It may be that he is averse to re ceiving Populist trade.
