I by the Hanks In Helllinc Malnucen Tliun limy Hope t fast DUrreJlt upon Silver. Silver Knight: The amount of lying which both parties do to deceive the people on the fellver question ought to make the devil proud of his pupils. Both parties in their platforms continu ally declare they are in favor of the use of both gold and silver rs money, and every cuckoo and subBlr.lzed poli tician has this lying declaration on his lips. Notwithstanding the law makes no discrimination between gold and sil ver coin and every obligation of the government is payable in silver, no ad ministration can be found which does not falsely assert that the obligations of the government are payable in gold alone. This is not all or the worst of it. livery administration since the crime of 1873 has made it a business to boycott silver and drive It out of use in violation of law, In violation of the pledges of both parties. In violation of the constant assertion of the presidents of both parties, and in violation of every principle of honor, decency and truth. This lying system permeates every de partment of the government at Wash ington, und is done in pursuance of the orders and mandates of the lingHsli gold trust. The following from the New York World Is one of the methods used by the enemies of the people to de stroy the money of the constitution: Hanks lioycott SilverClearing House Keport Shows that not a While Dollar Passed In Balances-Reviving Trade Makes a ChangeOver Half a Million in Small Certificates Taken from the Sub-Treasury for Local I'se.

WE NEED A WAR. Miml Kill tlm Hiri1nn I'opulu t loit for I In' lleiii'llt i.f I lie Itli'b. In convei'sation with a gentleman be said that "we ought to have a war in order to kill off the thousands who had nothing to do and could get nothing to do." And this is the 19th century! This is a civilization that has been moulded by the inlliiencea of Christian ity and softened by the tenderness ol brotherhood! This is an age that Is brilliant with the power and creation? of accumulated wealth! This Is the country In which millionaires increase, churches and school houses multiply and art galleries ami libraries and col leges and inventions grow more and more numerous! And yet, like hungry men from a shipwreck it Is brutally concluded that we must, kill some of out number that the rest may live. The idea is monstrous; It is savage; it I devilish. If In 1,900 years the liunian race Is yet so near a barbaric state as tc harbor a thought as horrible as thi man expressed, there can be no longer a doubt of the gospel truth of the doc trine of man's total depravity. The thought tit once Ignores, brutally Ig nores, the teachings of Jesus Christ and outrages every lofty sentiment of th( heart. That it should be deemed nec essary or advisable to slaughter thou sands, that IheCiouldH, and Vanderbllth 'and Morgans and Rockefellers should keep their useless millions and accumit 1 le more, Is a violation of every princi pie of civilization. The Almighty, w do not. believe, ever created men foi other men to kill in order that there might be morn room on the earth foi greed and plunderers. In a sparwly settled country like this, not yet inhab ited by the one-tenth of the people that It can support, to talk of its inability tc feed ami clothe and hoime a portion ol those who are already here, Is not only preposterous, but is the savage experi ence of a blood-thirsty disposition thai would shame a cannibal ami offend the religion of a Choi taw; and if such talk cannot awaken the masses to change our systems so thai a man can live where wheat sells for 50 pents a bushel and potatoes for 25 cents.

Say Mrn Iluve I.mis Item Drrolveil Wllh l.lii.oln, lis lli'llcvfB All llio I'cople Can Not IS Iteeelvcd All the Time. Eugene V. Debs In Chicago Evening Press: In a free rountry where the peo ple aro the sovereigns, as Is supposed to be the case in the United States, ami all the people have the ballot, nil are, or ought to be, aa the phrase goes, "in politics." Indeed, if they exercise the "divine right to rule," which Is done by tho Hat of the ballot, the;' are "In politics." If they do not vole and there by abdicate their sovereignty, they may bo said to be "out of politics" and aliens In their native land. Now then, let tm inquire, What is pon tics? Webster defines the term, and he will bo accepted as standard authority. I epiote the "unabridged" definitions In full: "1. Politics Is the science of govern ment; that part of ethics which has to do with the regulation and government of a nation or state, the preservation of Its safety, peace and prosperity, tho de fense of its existence and rlglits against foreign control or conquest, the aug mentation of Its strength and resources and the protection of Its citizens in their rights with the preservation and Improvement of their morals. "2. The management of a political party, the conduct and contests of par ties with reference to political meas ures In the administration of public af fairs, tho advancement of candidates to ofllce, "3. In a bad sense artful or dishonest management to secure the success of political candidates or parties. "4. Political trickery." In the foregoing we have Webster's definition of "politics" as practiced in the I'nlted States, I am particular In giving these dellnitiona because I have reasons for In llevlng that the masses of the people were never before so pro foundly Interested in politics as at pres ent. Hitherto men have voted wllh the parties with which they were affiliated, right or wrong. They were democrats or they were republicans, without a reason why. They marched, they shout ed and voted for the supremacy of their party, accepted professions a honest which proved to be false, and platforms which were made to be disregarded, to find out at last that they had been the victims of the vilest duplicities that were ever concocted, of politics "In a bad sense," of "political trickery." They were not to be blamed specially for their allegiance to the two old parties, for, in sooth, they must vote for one or the other because there was no other party with which Ihey rould affiliate. It was the sage remark of Abraham Lincoln that "You can deceive of the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you cannot de ceive all of the peeiple all of the time." No one doubts that Abraham Lincoln had the ability to write political max ima, and, subjected to analysis, his proverbs are found to be absolutely true. For Instance: "1. You ran deceive all of the peiple Borne of the time." Inevitably. If there arc but two par ties and both of them are political ' In a bad sense," "artrul and dishonest," what matters It for which party a man casts his vole? Ho is the victim of de ception in either case, and that is just what has been the matte; during the past quarter of a century. The people have been deceived all the lime. They have been jumping from the frying pan into the fire and then jumping from the fire into the frying pan deceived every time and all the time. "2. You may deceive some of the peo ple all the time." In ptilitlcs the rtaiement is absolutely Incontrovertible. Wo see it Illustrated on every band and at every election. We see men wedded to their party idols and worshiping them with pagan idol atry. They will not be undercived, They have eye.4, but, like the? potato, they cannot see; they have ears, but, like the cornstalk, they cannot hear; or. If they ilo see and hear they are so debauched by the influence of "politics In a bad sen.-e," by "politl-Ml trickery," that no facts, no argunn nts. no ingle, and no calamine cm Pifliienre them, and they h ive to be let alone.

The new party that has come and has come to stay is the people's party It has come because yon "cannot de ceive all the people all the time." II has come in obedience to tho honest patriotic thought of the nation. If there were those who believed tha' the people's party would vault lnt fiower like a fabled Minerva, full-growc and ready armed to beat back the ene mie's of honest government, they should remember that the present is not an ngf of miracles nor of myth,-igy. Political part'rs are of slow growth, but if the) only "the eternal years," ?ut men whe will not be deceived, aro pledged tc their final triumph. The patriots In the people's party have a right to feel encouraged, be cause from 1892 to 1894 the gains In the party exceeded a million votes establishing the fact beyond contro versy that "you cannot deceive all thf people all the time." THE PASSING SHOW. A I'eiT Simp SlinU at un Kmilea l'ro ri'Mlon. Jeffrrsonlan simplicity Is no longei "good form" In America. Presidential etiquette Is daily becoming more anei more like that of the royal court of th little Island which dictates the finan cial affairs of all tho vast continents of the world. Our president hns beei guarded day and night by soldiers evei since tho day that bis election wan an nounced. He Is never seen walking out side of bis castle. Detectives are by hlf side even when he condescends to al low the people who have him hired tc shake his flabby fat hand in either pri vate or public receptions. He and hli cabinet have at their disposal free of ex pense all the vessels of the United States fleet, and right royally do thej "spre-ad it on," cruising about the lakes on government vepsels. An Iron clad battle-ship may yet be converted Into their private use for a duck-shoot' Ing excurtilon. StiRar Is now handled by wholesaler! on commission only. No wholesaler can buy sugar. He takes it, pays for It, selli it at the price the trust dictates, send!

And now a mighty railroad pool has beten formed to "carry out the purpose of the interstate commerce act" ever tho railroads are going to protect the government, and help enforce the law Yea, verily they have Just been Jokinj when they worked so hard and so per slutently for the repenl of this act. The fact of the matter Is that this new poo! i: far the sole purpose of defying all law now in existence, and to work for a new law for the special promotion of rail road pools. Senator Chandler has writ ten President Cleveland urging hi in tc stoji the ileal. Ho says one word froir the President to J. Pierpont Morgan would cause the whole conspiracy tc :;(op. Hut the President will not speak tlio word. Senator Chandler says "Will you act or will you take tho re sponsibility of consenting, as you wil' by lua'.'Mon, to conspire against a new law, which, within a few weeks, will raise the prices of food and fuel to all your beloved people?" The leaderu ol the conpplraey, say that they will go tc i.uiigie.is with a petition for a pooling bill. However, the pool is already in e!Tect, and even though congress should grant them the privilege of pooling, II would come too late to cover the vloia- lious of the law already committed.

I: i n I lie Itrgnlur Molillpr and Army llller Thought It lll;rm'i'fnl to Kill Worklngmen for III llenrlit of oriioration und ThreMteited to Ke volu Mayor Plngree of Detroit, Mich., has Written a book, which. In Its introduc tory chapter, makes certain startling eilselosures which every patriotic Amer ican should hail with acclamations of delight. .Mayor Plngree Is built upon the pat tern or C.ov. Altgeld of Illinois. He Is honest, earnest ami courageous. He loves bis fellow men who are in distress. Ho abhors plutocrats and all their dev ilish machiuat UuiK. He regards them as the arch enemies of the republic who would, If they could, debauch angelu and wreck the government of heaven to carry out ihelr satanic pulley. Mayor Plngree Introduces the Pullman strike that he may give the public, an astound ing secret connected with that affair lu Chicago. He speaks liko one who knows, whereof he speaks, and the public has learned to place Implicit conlldenco In his utterances. The secret disclosed by Mayor Pln gree Is that tho olllcers of the regular I'nlted-States troops' brought to Chi cago by order of President Cleveland, who foolishly took the advice of Olney, the corporation lawyer, who was attor ney general in Cleve land's cabinet, met at one of the hotels and denounced the policy of using the army to perpetuate wrongs and by so doing to degrade It lu the eyes of the people, . . . Whenever opportunity offered they (the army olllcers) compared the Infor mation gathered by their own men and themselves, and when they exhausted inquiry and were salislied, they met In one of the Chicago hotels. That meet ing was one of the most extraordinary for llu Hignlllcance that was ever held in this country. It was a calm and quiet comparison of notes gathered by the olllcers themselves, and the conclusion was clear that the army bad been brought to Chicago under a pretense for the purpose of siding with the corpora tion In an industrial struggle. Mayor Plngree, in what he says, states what multlpled Millions of men believed at the time was true, that it was clear there was no emergency or sufficient moment to demand the ap pearance) ofthe I'nlted States army. The troops were in a dilemma. "The unhappy operatives at Pull man," says Mayor Plngree, "were not armed men, nor were Ihe men of the Railway Union who took their part cut throats or armed rebels. It was clear that It was a fight for just wages. It was clear that it was a light for just wages against Pullman and bis sympathizing corporation gang, who re fused arbitration. Pullman had said, There is nothing to arbitrate,' and a misguided President of the I'nlted Stat-a had sent the troops to back Pull man. It was clear to the eyes of those olllcers that the police, or at the utmos the state troops, were equal to the dis turbance that had been going on, and it was clear lo them that such work for the army would, when the real facts wore known, render the army obnox ious to the thinking people, as show ing that it was in the beck and e-all of corporations and as showing that a corporate aristocracy had the control of the army, and that if a republic were to be maintained It would call for the total abolition of an army mat could be made use of for such anti-republican j methods." "There in that room," says the an-! tbor, "officer who had seen fervice in j the great war of the rebellion, expressed their indignation that, they were called j out to be used, as was patent to them, not so much to quell a riot as to cni.ih labor unions, in a city w here eow urdice and gived for money predominated over common sense: where bowling news pa pern egged on rather than nlhyed the excitement of a badly misinformed city, and all under the llii.isy plea of enforc ing the interstate commerce act. They were to be Used as the general managers lulu lit ib em best." "These officers," says Mayor Piiigrie. "did not confine I hene'i ".-i to ihe mere expression f Indignation.

"The facts," srays Mayor Plngree, "of the court -nartlal aloo leaked out at the time, and the publication of that, too,., was suppressed. Among the officers to be court martialed for expnssing an opinion against using the army for such unholy purposes was a colonel of a regi ment, who had served through tho war of the rebellion, and whose name ia well ltnowa in this state. But the court martial never took place. The com manding officer was discreet enough to forward particulars to Washington, and the President, aghast at the front of in dependent American citizenship which he had aroused in his subordinates by his antt American methods, squtlched the C(.irt-nia.rtial, but the colonel fas retired from nctlve service, an.l the other officers were cowed by pressure from Wa shington authorities. "This action on tho part of these thor oughly American officers Is one of the bright spots on a black page of Ameri can history; a page as black as that of Homestead, where worklngmen w ore on the defensive against bogus philanthro py and hypocritical patriotism. Their action shows clearly that tho Intelligent men or the nation are holding to the opinion that justice, and not gulling guns, b; the best recourse of this nation under all circumstances "it shows that men who have seen serious service in arms nre averse, ex cept under direct necessity, to sweeping the streets of great cities with machine guns; that the men who have defended the flag want the arms of the nation dignified by placing them against the real foes of the country, and not against the worklngmen, who constitute the bone and sinew of our population, and the bulk of our soldiery In time of real war. 'lho troops of the United Stares should never be called Into any slrug g'e that does not Involve n conflict be tween civil authorities and the mob, with the express! Intention on tha part of the latter of overturning the gov ernment. They nhould never be called on to Interfere In industrial struggles between employer and employed, an there has never been a time, and tho time can never arise, when, the consta bulary, the police, and the militia of any given state can not handle the mat ter, however grave. "No matter how loud th call of cor poratlonl.sis and their managers, a deaf ear should be turned to their frantic appeals for the Interference of the Unit ed StateB troops. They were never in tendod for this purpose by our fon-t-fathers." Little by little the well planned cor poration Infernalism of calling out the regular army to sweep the streets of Chicago with machine guns for the ben efit of corporations is leaking out, and in due time Cleveland, Olney and Mills, and Ihnlr coadjutors, wil! stand eternal ly photographed lu the minds of the American people as Inhuman beasts of prey, and the story told by Mayor Pln gree lifts the rank and file of the regu lar army to the serenest elevation of pa triotism. The secrets disclosed by Mayor Plngree show to what depths ot depravity Cleveland's administration could descend to defeat the American Hallway Union, whose only crime was to assist famishing men and women to escape from the Jaws of George M. Pull man, a millionaire man-eating tiger. Railway Times. Rev. Walter A. Hvans of Maiden, Mass., is another preacher who is llabla soon to find himself out of a Job. In the Arena for October he has a striking paper entitled: "Preacher and Pluto crat: or the Corruption of the Church Through Wealth." "The favoring nod of the plutocrat," writes Dr. Evaas, "U the opeu sesamn to good standing and promotion in the aristocratic church; and the shrug of the plutocrat's shoul ders, his very praise (whispered in se cure secrecy), judiciously faint, will apply to the preacher, through the de nomination machinery, the ecclesiasti cal gag and boycott by which, In the smooth usage of the modern Inquisi tion, Cod's prophets of righteousness are reduced to silence." Tlr preachers all feel more or less the lightening of plutocracy's grip on the church, and we are pbased tJ noie that many of them prefer to preach the simple creed of Jemm and live oa tho homely fare which the hard-heai ! old woild besioAii on Its reformers.
