Mav'24 THE WEALTH MAKERS. V it. AN 1NIML ARMY. President Augell Proposes That a Balf Million Men Be Enlisted TO WOBI FOB THE OOUITBT. We Can't Afford Not to Do It Why Not Bnlitt Men to Woik aa Well aa Fight? Productive Labor Better.and Safer Than Idleness. Great Public Worka Are Needed. We reprint below an open letter ad dressed to Congress by a man known the wide world over. His proposition is entirely reasonable and should re- t celve the immediate attention of Con gress which its wisdom and the destl ill tution, distress and increasing1 despera' tion of the unemployed seem to call for. Something must be done and done quickly. The plan of President Angel is better than any we have heard of, 'and this paper warmly endorses it. Kditor Wialth Makeus Thou, too, sail on, 0 Ship of Bta! Tali on, O Union, strong and great! Hura4flltj with all Its fears, With all the nope of future year, Is banging breathless oil thy fate! The following, which appeared in Beaton daily papers of April 10th, was itent in April to every member of Con' gress, and is sow tent to the editors of aouui, leu wuunuu uowivautn uu 1 magazines who receive "Our Dumb Y Animals" each month. ' To th Members of the Honorable Senate and Hume of Representatives of the Umttd Statei of America: COXEY'S ARMY. I have read with interest in our dally papers of tbe progress of this army and of tbe various bodies of men who pro pose to join it, either at, or before its arrival at Wat-hlcgton, also tbe opin Ions of General McCook of our United States arm;, and various others upon the subiect. This armv may not reach Washington with a sufllctont fore to endanger Con gress or tbe United States treasury, and these opinions of General Mc(.;ook and Others may be wrong. Hut there is no V doubt tbat there is in this country at the preaent time a very, large number fyf laboring men, willing to work, who cannot find employment, and another class who are anxious to stir up these men to anarchy and the destruction of property and life. un the otner nana mere can no no intn. t:uu u ud ukiuut riuu uidu hjuuv ' on public improvements of great value.

If I mistake not, a very considerable body of mtn might be profitably cm 'ployed in Washington itself, securing "better tewerage. the filling of the Poto- ' mac Hate, building proper brldgesacross I tbe river, and killing out tbe causes of I malaria. Now, I am not a Congressman, never held a political office la my life, and never want to; but I have In common with others an -merest in the welfare of our countiy and in promoting peace and good-will bet wet all classes of Us citizens. and with that view would inquire whether it is not entirely within the power of Congress to authorize the im mediate enlistmont of one, two, three or more hundred thousand men aa an 'Industrial Corps" of our regular army, to be employed only in usefullndustrlee . but to bo subject to as strict military discipline, court martial trials, etc , as the regular army; this "industrial Corps" to be placed under the control u'n,00r designated by Congress or Testae nt. ine enlistment to be Ui one, two or more yean, and the men (put at wot k as ion as pws.lble in some mr the wats above pciDod. state governments may follow tbe example of tbe L'nlud 8iate, and every unerapioyeu man in me country, will lug to work, have plenty to do.

Editor Wealth Makers: Read the following from the Oregon lan of tb.s city: If the legislature to be elected next montn be not Republican, it will be Populists. Do the people of Oregon realize what It would mean te have m Popollat legislature? No one would consider, investments secure. Capita would avoid the state. Those who have money la vested here would withdraw It as fast as possible. He would be a re markable fool who would Invest any thing or start any business in Oregon, with the menace of Populist legislation before him. The legislature may be Republican, it mav be Populist, but It win not do Democratic. Democrats, therefore, who are identified with busl ness and who understand tbe conditions on which business depends, should know what to do. A Populist Iegls'a ture would be the greatest calamity mat uregon nas yet sunerea. ' You see the Populists have soared the great moguls of tho Republican party in the state. Could anything be mora pitiful than this appeal to Democrats to save the g. o. p? This party In Oregon represents the autocrats of Wall Street and Europe. See tbe. plan they would put Into force to retain the gold and m"ke slaves of the ' people. God pity the people should these men have the power to roako the lawa to suit them We have one sure way, and only one, of replenishing the gold In tbe treasury and of keeping up the supply. That only way ia to clap revenue duties on articles of universal consumption- sugar, tea, coffee and other IndUpen alble things of foreign production and home consumption and make thesn duties payable in gold. Then every person in the United States will help to keep up tbe gold supply in the treasury and to maintain the true money stand ard. We shall come to this yet; tbat is, we shall be compelled to it. There is now no other way. Is not that tbe embodiment of wisdom? Think of the calamity of letting the Populists legislate with men having all this wonderful financial wisdom rele gated to the rear. Joe Simons and his gang are terribly frightened. They tent to attorneys to Clackamas county to organ! zeUepub llcan clubs in every school district. Tho farmers turned out, but when the attorneys harangued them they an swered by giving them a piece of chalk and invited them to solve a few fioan clal problems; such as, how- issuing bonds would lighten the burdens of the people; how protecting tbe great trusts who own all the manufactures of the country would make the people rich abd contented; how destroying half tbe money of the country would make money plentiful. These legal gents were not expert in this kind of mathe matics, and the'farmers declined to join their clubs. One of them told a friend tbat the 'old bayseeda were too well posted for them to do anything in tbat county. C. Subscribe at once for The Wealth Makers and secure a book free.

There should be an inspector appoint ed by the governor, whoae duty it should be to inspect all malt or spirituous liq uors sold in the state, and nothing bit the absolutely pure should be allowed to be sold. It should be his duty to see that iquors are bottled ar.d labelled true to name. The tenure of office ot the liquor agents should not be less than ten years. The agency should only have one door and that should op n on a publio street, and the front should be of clear glass There should be notbing to obi-truct the view of any passer-by from seeing any person in the room. The bar should stand across the room. and not'more than ten feet from the door. There should not be any furniture in front of the bar. Dehlnd the bar there should be only such furniture as would bs needed by the agent and his aaals tants. Nooneelae should bo allowed behind tbe bar at aay time. There should be no gambling or games or chance of any kind. There should ba no advertising nor obsoene or lewd pictures In the room or on the walls.

It has demonstrated that we are now reaping the harvest of the seed sown in this country for the last ,10 years, and. oh, what a harvest it is! Millions of working men who have no way to get bread except by th'eir labor and no labor to ao, anayevmuis, mines ana factory standing still everywhere business paralyzed people. human beings starving: dark picture and growing darker every day. And the darkest thing about it is, that It is awfully true Ob, there ta tbat gathereth and yet scattereth, and this administration set, eternally set against anything that looks like a remedy, and our hoisting Republican friends who expect to get into power and give us a repetition of tbe same causes that has brought about the present condition of things.

It Is a fact tbat there is not a prominent Republican in tbe United States bat what has and is now endorsing everything .Cleveland has said abd done on the money ques tion, which Is the all absorbing question of tbe day. Yes sir, they have just laid right down In bed with them, Why should the people put them back in power? Is it to our interest to do it?

In view of all these facts and many more for tbe half has not been told don't you think, Mr. Kditor, that it becomes and ir the interest of every man, without regard to political theo ries, to act together and send such men to coogrcas as will give us more money? Turn looae ilfty dollars per capita in this country of lawful United State money and you will see the railroads running on time, and the mines, mills, and factories all at work, aod, Coxey' army will go away like the fog before a hot suo, and no place will be found for them and nobody will bi starviug, and the rich and poor will all be happy and full of work and business.

Parties Of No fee That Are Not Progressive. Babtlet, Neb., April 30, 1804. Sditor Wealth Makers: Parties are only organized to assist in tbe election of men to make and exe cute just laws; therefore, when a man or a party ceases to bo progressive, they are of no more use to a progressive peo ple. Parties are formed by men and should bo measured by the laws they mike and the way they execute them. If a people want a progressive party, they must wa'ch those in power, and as soon as a man ceases to be progreaalve, embrace the first opportunity to get a progressive man to fill his place; be cause a party will be like its representa tives; it makes no difference ab ut the platform, A progressive prty must be composed of progressive people, and a progressive people must read progres sive papers and bookt, or associate and counsel with those that have read them. That Implies that we must have progressive editors and writers; and be hind all these must be a desire to see the Golden Rule fulfilled in carrying out the purposes for whioh this govern ment was formed by our fort fathers But btforo we reaoh this we must a a through a political revolution which must be carried on by intelligent educa tion of the people, explaining the causes and pointing out tbe remedy by appeal ing to tbe better principles of nea in stead of appealing to their bater nature, a is done by old pitrty papers aad leaders.

For the benefit of the younger gener ation, we reprint below some interest ing figure's from the Peering Farm Journal showing the dates on which tbe Marsh Harvester, the Wire Binder and the Twine Binder were flm pat out by the leading harvester manufacturers. The older generation doei not need to be told. 1 1 remembers Huasey's Reaper in 1833 and the McCormlck some twelve yeara later, It remembers about read ing in 1868 of the suoceas of the Marsh Brothers In their new harvester. It remembers how. the Deerlng people held the field alone with this maehlne during most of the seventeen years' life of the patent. Then, when the patent did expire, the older generation re members that William Daerlng & Co, came out with the Wire Binder. Thia was In 1874, and the younger generation even, can remember the rapid strides that followed. How, after this pioneer in automatic binders had had the field for three years, McCormlck and the other manufacturers fell Into line; and how in 1878 the During people spoiled tbe whole wire binder business by com ing out with the Appleby Twine Binder. B Ak old and young must smile ai they now look back at the frantic attempts made by the late converts to wlro bind ers, to push tbat machine la the face of the wonderful twine binder; and bow t key finally were all ultimately com po'led to fall into line and manufacture the twine binder under the Appleby patents. The Farm Journal tells the story of tbe successive steps in manu facture by means ot a witty drama en titled "Crow and Quail," which is clinched by the following statement: "The following are the dates on which various manufacturers began building and putting on the market harvesters, wire binders and Twine Binders. The dates for During machines are exact. 1'hose fur competing firms are according to our beit knowledge. MAnSfl HARVX8TKB.
