TURNER, EDITOR. Vot.> are worth mow than reso- Itttion?. You cau'i even make <oup out of. confide vi c. When elections are bought the people are sold. Reforms move slowly because reforms are slow to move. Thk devil's most effective assist ant is good but gullible man. Strange how many men can have their love for liberty put to, sleep by ft iiule office. Tuh man who will buy hia way toanoffic< will not hesitate to sell his constituents. TherK are mow people trying to get an office than thew aw trying to get heaven. There an 1 1 ><< many people who are willing to let others do their thinkinu for them. ji -i so long as decent men keep out of politics, jiolitics will bean unlit place for decent men. Tut limn who only resists wrong when it hurts himself is neither a patriot nor a humanitarian. Labor difficulties never lead to riot when there is plenty of work for all who are willing to labor. Money expended in education is a better promoter of peace than money expended in gattling guns. When any people learn to honor men simply because of their wealth, honor for manhood begins to decline. Any man who will ignore the promises he made to get into power should be turned out of power and kept out. Some men will not believe the truth when they h.-ar it, hut will run half n mil* for a chance to swallow a lie. Iv people would do more study ing between campaigns, they would be less easily duped by demagogues during campaigns. GROUNO-Hoa day was observed this year on March 4th, in Wash ington, i>. C.

Tho peonies party is ridiculed by many people who do not know what they are talking about. Some peo ple ridicule all virture and all re form, while others —for purely par tisan purposes —ridicule the people party men in tbe hope of making republican votes. However, actions speak louder than words, as well be seen by the following: Public funds spent by the Mc- Graw (republican) administration; for two years, $2, 773,767. Public funds appropriated by peoples party legislature for two years, $1,154,778. Two useless normal school funds that Governor Rogers has already decided to veto, $63,000. Peoples party appropriation up ivuute. with itii,l further reductions promised liy Ciovtrrwrn Rogers, ii,- --961,778. Saving to the taxpayers as- a re* suit of turning out the republican otiice huldt-ra and replacing them with peoples party men $1,716,989. This is a good beginning. These peoples party men are morrey sav ors. Taxpayers appreciate prac tical economy, no matter what en vious politicians may say i>r think. —Tacoma Union. THE FIRST BATTLE — BRYAN'S NEW BOOK. The First Battle will he a valuable aud interesting con tribution to the cause of bi metallism. The author's well known ability aud zeal is a sufficeut guarantee that the work will be widely read. R. P. Bland. Such a book is greatly need ed, and ocming from one having the experience and a bility of Mr. Bryan will pos sess double value. It ought to be read by every citizen of the United States.' W. V. Allen. The name of the anther is a sufficient guaranttee of the merits of the work. I wait its publication with confidence but impatience. J. C. S. Blackburn. The important work will not only be interesting to all, but a great advantage to the cause of bimetallism. Mr. Bryan is thoroughly qualified to discuss the subject. His recent splendid canvass enlist ed the attention of the world. Stephen M. White. The campaign of Hon Wil liam Jennings Bryan was the most brilliant and wonderful political canvass ever known in the world's history. That he would issue permanent memorial of it in his work to be called "The First Battle" will be gratifying to every one. John W. Daniel. I think and congratulate Mr. Bryan for giving to the people this most valuable work for their information and in struction. It is the best evi dence that he could furnish of i his devotion te the cause of constitutional money and equal rights which involve the paramount interest of the 'common people. \Vm. M. Stward.

Had our law-makers fol lowed the counsels of this great and j good man we no doubt today would , be enjoying a heritage in which it 1 would be possible for man to ap proach obfyance of the devine ccm- I mand, 'Love Cod supremely and: thy neighbor %% thyself." The letter reach as follows: I Paris, Jan. C, 1737. Col. Edward Carrington : My Dear Sir: —I am persuaded, ; myself, that the good sense of the people will be the best army. They may be led astray for a moment, but will soon correct themselves, The | people are the only uensorS of their government; and even their errors will tend to keep those to the true principles of their instutioni. To punish errors too severely would be to sup press th» only safe guard of the public liberty. The way to prevent these irregu-' lar interpositions of the people is to give them full information of their affairs through the channel oi the | public papers, and to contrive that .those papers should penetrate the; ! whole mass of the people, basis of. • our government being tlie opinion' !of the people. The very first object should be to keep that right, and wer« it left to me to decide whether | ;we should have a government with-i out newspapers or newspapers with- i | out a government, I should not hes-! itate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man ; should receive those papers and be capable of reading them. I am 4 convinced that those societies (as \ : the Indians) which live without government, enjoy in their general j mass an infinitely greater degree of happiness than those who "live under' European government?. Among : the former, public opinion is in the j place of law and restrains morals as I powerfully as laws did anywhere.: Among the latter under pretense of governing, they divided their na- j Itiorts into two classes, wolves and j sheep. Ido not exaggerate; this is ] ' a true picture of Europe. Cherish | j therefore, the .spirit of our people j ; and keep alive their attention. Do ] not be too severe upon their errors, \ j but reclaim them by enlightening j ' them. 1/once they become inattentive to public affairs, you and 1, and con- j gress, and assemblies, judges and i j governors, shall all become wolves, j j It seems to he the law of our general, j nature in spite of individual exeep j j tions, and experience declares that i I man is the only animal which de- j j yours hid own kind, for I can apply ! jno milder term to the governments j jof Europe and the general prey of \ ! the rich on the poor. Yours respectfully Thomas Jefferson. Ripans Tabules. Urpan> Tabvuo* oure jaundioo. Mfp«nß Tabules cure Aj^ix^ia.
