KOOT OUT THIS ROT.
NO SUCH THING AS A FIFTY CENT DOLLAR. It Maliei No lMffereoce to l What a Dollar Cot tI- Mao ITotu Whom Wa Receive It. So Lone It P' One Dollar of Ujbt for I'a. Stop this senseless twaddle about a fifty-cent dollar. Thoro Is no such thing. A dollar is a dollar. A fifty-eent coin la half a dollar, fifty cents of good money, and It would be honest money w.ere it in the aggregate full legal tender Just as it was when democrats, whlgs, republicans and others were declaring that gold and sli ver were alike money, and that nothing else could bo money! Were there such a thing as a fifty cent dollar It would bo preferable to a two-dollar dollar, as the gold dollar i3 ono dollar's worth of gold and one dollar's worth of flat. Why not say something about the nickel, which is five cents as suro as you aro born, though there is less than one-sixteenth of a cent's worth of nickel or metal in the coin. But it is Ave cents, and stops a five-cent debt hole as quick as a president stops talk ing for the people as soon as he reaches the White House. What about your postage ptamps, all sizes and yet of many different values as the law has spoken through them? A lady takes ten cents' worth of strings and wlrss and in an hour makes a fifteen-dollar hat. ' Why not talk about that a little? A saloonkeeper sells you a fifteen cent drink which costs him three cents. Whv net UUU at that a few times? The president of the United States receives fifty thousand dollars a year as salary from a law firm in the city of New York, he steers into the pudding-patches he has Lis hands on. and fifty thousand dollars a year more as his salary as president. What kind of a fifty-cent dollar is that? A lawyer goes to Washington and Bells a lot of talk for $100,000, ns did Choate, who was paid the latter sum for his argument In the income tax law ease, and surely there was a difference between the cost and the get of the thing sola. It makes no difference to' ns what a dollar cods the man from whom we re ceive it, so long as it will pay one dol lar of the debt we owe. Therefore there Is no such thing as a fifty-cent dollar, unless a man will deliberately sell us a debt-paying dollar for a half a dollar. In which case he Is foolish and we are financially wise to buy it, even if we hold it a few moments before some creditor comes in and beckons it away. Why do not the people of this coun try get down to talking business a lit tle while, and if they have a govern ment that can create money good enough to pay its debts at a little or 'no direct cost, in God's name let ua have It, as the government has cost the peoplo more money than they bar gained for, and it Is time it was return ing to those who have fooled the bills at least a triflo of the expenses of the past. If our government cannot, nfter all that has been done for It, and all It has cost in the way of blood, treasure, life and suffering, return some profit to the people, It should be set aside for a better one or knocked in the head and handed over to the Rothschild fam ily. If the government should create every dollar of money to meet all Its needs, and use but ten dollars' worth of naner and all the rest flat, having nothing but a substance that can carry the money declaration, it would still be billions of dollars in debt to the people who horned and brought it up. Pom eroy's Advance Thought. A TRUTH CONCISELY TOLD. elovernment hy Injunction li DenpotWin Pure and Minplx. The following letter from Eugene V.

Thank you cordially for your kind and sympathetic word. To bear punishment for one's honest con victions is In the nature of a privilege which does not require a high order of courage I fully concur with you in your estimate of the courts. As a gen eral proposition, they are for the pro tection of the rich nnd the punishment r,f tho poor.

The dispatches giv us the wonder ful news that the architect of the ChU cngo postofflce was "granted" an In terview with Secretary Carlisle! How gracious our rulers ore becoming! It will soon be as easy to approach one of our hired hands at Washington as any king. And this Is what you call a republic, eh? Wheat Is selling at 32 cents in Utah. Wheat gamblers live in palaces. One busts occasionally, but the farmers do not move lniovhis palace another gambler, does that. And the farmers are pretty solid for the same good old tickets. I'll tell you what, fellow-citizens, this is the greatest, grandest, freest country on the globe and our people are tho most Intelligent. . At Houghton, Mich., thirty-two min ers are killed by "nobody to blame," while getting out coal for the coal barons to make money on. No loss to the owners, as men are the cheapest things on earth. Horses, bogs, sheep, even c'aickeus have value to thei own etj only men have none. Thirty more to take their places can be had without paying a cent for them. O. this is a Jolly country and a glorious system. Only on election day are men worth a dollar a bead to vote tho old tickets. Why do men buy houses to live In or do business in? Is it not to avoid paying some one else interest in the shape of rent? If this Is desirable this avoidance of Interestwhy do not the people vote to buy or build their own street railways, water works, J?as and ek'ctrkt plants? This idea hit me when I read that the street cars of Philadelphia netted nearly $1,000,000 last year, that would have remained in the people's pockets had th;y owned the system, as they should. Only sixteen people were killed by a little collision near Melby. Minn., on the private enterprise railroads last week. People are cheap and dollars are dear, and safety appliances would cost dollars. Railroad owners must have big profits to live in palaces and buy titles for their daughters. The cheap people are taught it would ruin them to have the nation own the rail roads and not have any profits' go to millionaires. This is not anarchy, sure not! This Is order and harmony! National banks are enemies of the republic. They are tho moans of near ly all corruption and bribery In poll ties. They work in secret like an as sassin. Already the press is current with reports of the on-coming lobby at Washington by the bankers. I !:ope they will succeed to such an elegant degree that tho people will get real mad then their bonds, stocks, mort gages and real estate will be served Just like the sacred right of property in the chattel slaves. History repeats itself. Crime always brings up at the halter If let run far enough. I don't blame men for being bankers, but I do for defending so villainous a system and preventing a Juster ona. Pharaoh put nw burdens (bonds) on his people as fast as he saw they could stand it. Our people took their sale Into bondage to American and English bankers so meekly, never uttering a protest, and indorsing It by electing the same people to office, that a new tet of bonds will be again given to tha shy locks next month. The American peo ple don't know that bonds mean bond age. They don'e know their lives and property have been pledged as secur ity for gold for their rulers to squan der in riotous, licentious and traitorous luxury. There Is not a savage tribe in Africa that would so meekly submit to such degradaMon. Issue more bonds, masters. Issue lots of them. We love bond?. We like to bow the neck to British rule. We don't care a cent how much of our land and property the grandees own. We like to work for them. Next fall we will re-elect the old parties to prove our pleasure at your action. Hurrah for the bonds. We will hang any traitor that utters a word against the bonds. Whoop-la! You ran hire two incn one day for two dollars now. Formerly you could hire but one man one day for two dol lars. Aro men depreciating? OUR GLORIOUS SYSTEM. LrgUUiur nought ami Kohl Mkc Miern.

In Damm'ratjr In II I'lirlljr anil lt iulillranliii in 11 Simpllell J tiovarn miit lijr tho I'eupl Inipoilhle Ollier- By Oorge X. Young, I.ongmont, Colo. In theory a representative govern ment Is a republic; in fact a representa tive government is not a republic, or at least It does not long remain one, after Its founders have passed away. Every representative republic of the past has perished from off the earth. The Utile Alpine republic of Switzer land was upon the same road that led so many of Us predecessors to ruin; but uearing the rocks It changed Its course, adopted direct legislation, and is to-day the healthiest, as well a.i the oldest, re public In existence. Perhaps our own country is the most striking example of tho complete fail ure of the representative system.' Tho people never get the laws they desire, but they get plenty which they dislike. If a measure good for the people be In troduced in a legislative body, the final product Is as badly disfigured as a man who has run an Indian gauntlet. Even our constitution fails us. Made more than a century ago, its framers saw not the embryonic but tremendous forces lying in ambush, to finally, cru;ib the liberties of the people; but they heeded not the warning voice of the elo quent Patrick Henry, who plead in vain for a bill of rights for the people. They turned a deaf ear to the admonitions of that embodiment of statesmanship Thomas Jefferson who, from beyond the sea,-deplored the absence of a bill of rights. Of this defective document James Monroe said: "I see in it no real checks upon the government." ,Sce Bancroft's "History of Constitu tion," page 428. 1 The people have, for many years, ,'bc-cn clamoring for the poor little priv ilege of themselves electing their United States senators. But even this Is denied them. The enthroned corpor ations prefer senators of their own choosing. The history of legislation In tills country for the century now closing should convince every one that It Is a waste of time and energy to work for reform under the present system of law making. All efforts for "free coinage," prohibition, single tax, restriction of immigration, government control, etc., will fail In the future as they have done in the past. There Is always sonic power other than Divinity that shapes all the ends of legislation. The Initiative and referendum consti tute direct legislation by the people. It Is democracy In Its purity. Il Is re publicanism in its simplicity. It Is, in Itself, not so much of a reform ns it Wi a means of obtaining reforms. It will throw wide open the gates which have so long barred the people from their Cod-glvrn rights. It will relegate to the rear all the political crooks, the heelem. KUIIKKters, shyntors, piirilHitea, etc.. which have so long been a curse and a illfgr.t to our country. Hypo crites and fiw tiers, too, will liuw- to take buck rents.

It is of vital importance that nil re formers untie their strength for tho fast approaching campaign of IS'JC. An other four years nnd it may bo too late. We are nearlng the dead line. The next presidential term will ex tend Into the twentieth century. Momentous questions are confront ing the American people. Shall the wonderful d'scovc lies, advancements In knowledge and tho arts and sciences go out In darkness? Shan tne bright and glorious possibilities of the future end In disappointment? Shall the hopes, aspirations and happiness of millions of out countrymen be sacrificed upon tha altar of greed and avarice? "Forbid it, Almighty Cod!" The brazen-armored pnalanx of Aus tria met a Winklereld; and tho gold armored phalanx of our country may meet many a Winklereld e'er Its last chain Is rlvlted upon Its victims. It Is probable that there are not a dozen well-informed persons in the re form ranks at this time, but would agree that the principle of direct legis lation is right and wt. It Is the one and only Issue upon which all reformers can unite; It Is absolutely Invulnerable, stronger and more perfect than the god made armor of Achilles. It Is founded upon our immortal declaration that governments derive their Just powers from th(KOverne(1.- The common enemy of all reform will no doubt, continue to now the seed of disKcntlon by means of hireling dema gogues and a shackled press. But tho sad experiences of the past should warn us to unite our faces. Many a good cause has been lost for want of union of friends. The Christian church may be cited ns one instance of how feeble a great and good power becomes when divided into factions. With commendable zeal It has been fighting Satan tor nearly two thousand years, and still a glance at surrounding social and economic condi tions should convince the most skepti cal that the old fellow Is not only alive, but has lots of "business on his hands." In nearly every human undertaking there is some one article of prime neces sity. The woodman must have his axe, the seamstress, her needle. A party of campers might disagree as to what thpy would have for their first meal, whether flhh, flesh or fowl; but all would agree that in order to have anything at all, tfcey must first have a camp-fire. So tho mass of reformers must first get their right to legislate, then all de mands which commend themselves to the people will be enacted into laws. While no one should expect the refer endum to cure all the ills from which the people suffer, yet all thinkers must see in It a measure calculated to loosen and ultimately break the giklllng chains which tow fetter a tax-ridden and debt-burdened poopl.

(bsnrltnr of American Prodacs Vtha Annanlly Spend Million In Karop Ar Not Truly American I.oa That' Nut It I,ii ud (or the TroOt Ouly. There are a class of peoplo in Amer ica, a growing class, who call them selves Americans, whose Individual members are asking, "what does a re public amount to anyway?" This class ia made up of those who absorb the pro fits of American labor and American enterprise. They annually go to Eu rope, and annually spend la Europe millions of American dollars. They aro not truly Americans at heart, and the more they see and enjoy the European privileges which their money so readily cornmnnds the less American are they. In short they care little for their native land farther than they reap the results of Its energies and genius, which re sults are dissipated In wasteful selMa dulgenco on the bounties of older civil izations whose glitter and pomp Is aris tocracy. Cold Is the god of this grow ing class of Americans, and costly Jew- " els their playthings; women their pas time, and fine wines their recreation. America's tolling millions to them ara nil tight so long as the millions do not rise above their tolling conditions. The happiness und prosperity of Amer ica's millions Is a menace to those an nual American tourlsis, to these ab sorbers of American blood, and con trollers of American destiny. , Tha brokers and bankers of this class nr found in the financial heart of every commercial city, their servitors In eve.-y capital of tho country. In speak ing of America to their foreign enter tainers they praise only Us material re sources and its financial possibilities. Their paid agents and expert statisti cians count the number of acres under plow, and watch the weather reports; estimate tho probable tonuage to be moved and determine how much freight charges each commodity will bear; cal culate tho output of every kind of niln the produce of every sort of factory, thn margins of profits of all which they deem to bo theirs by virtue of their stock-exchanges, their boards of trade, their chambers of commcrco, and tha money of their banks, and even of the ticasurkis whose volume they control. The national treasury Itself is not safe from their manipulations nor tha precious metals of which money ii coined, they sending the price of tb one up and destroying the value of tha other at will, whereby the farmer'B bin of corn, the miner's pound of ore, tha planter's bale of cotton, all becomea tbclr3. The man who never goes to Europe, the man who never expects to go U Europe, the man who loves the govern ment and the Institutions of America, loves It mountains and prairies, ita wood a and streams, and all that H. la physically, socially and politically, past or present, outnumbers the man who spends his millions In Europe a thou sand to one. The plain from whlh the Caesars sprang, tho waters that re flect the palaces of the Doges, tha grape kulen hills and cathedral-shadowed valleys of Spain, tho castle-be-studded banks of the Ithlne and all that England or France has to offer la the way of the mist and dust and ruin ot ages, with oil their tinsel crowns, and feather-bedecked nobility, fall to at tract, much less win the heart from iti fealty to this land of manhood and hu man equality of the man who nevei goes to Europe of the American who is for America. The question which Is now confront- Ing the man who never goes to Europa is: Who is to rule America? Tha thousand, or the? one; tho toller who stays at home or the absorber who goes abroad to criticise his own land? It is confronting him through the medium that has ruled all lands In all times, and which has become so potent of lata In this country of the ballot-boj and school-house tho medium of money Is It to be a currency of the peoplo or ol medium so limited that the absorber can corner It at will? Ia it to be of both gold and sliver and promises to pay In either or both? or ol a metal w hich Is owned and held by tha 1 absorber, together with such additional currency us the absorber may aee fit to have Issued by thoso who own our bonds and control and fix the amount of our debt-burden?
