"A Better Financial System" or Gov ernment Bank," is the title of a valu able work just lesuedby the Arena 1 ub llahlng Co., from the pen of George C. Ward, editor of the I'eoplc's party page of the A. N. Kellogf Kewapaper Co. There la one feature of the present banking eyatcm which healed many un acquainted with lU evlla to call it the best banking system ever Invented, and that Is, the oertainty that the currency will not become worthless on our bands through bank Insolvency. The banks may, and hundreds haveln the past year become insolvent, unable to pay their depositors, but tbelr issue of currency, being all secured by a government de cree and promlee.'remained absolutely unaffected, and as good as the govern ment. This is of course a better or safer sort of money tnan tne wiiuc money formerly iasued by state banks. But this leads one naturally to ak, if the government promise, paper bond, furnishes complete security for a paper currency based on It, should not the irovernment issue all the money neeaea, paper currency as well as coin, and save the people the vaat Interest tribute which Is now demanded by the mono polizer of coin and credit currency' If the banks may have government made and secured notes issued to them and for them alone, at the trilling coat of a dollar on the hundred, why should not all who can offer ample security be lo supplied directly and at cost with cur rency they must now pay six, elgbtana ten per cent, a year for to a government favored usnrer class? The preaent banking system Is class legislation of the most destructive sort to liberty, it is a financial system which as inevitably and almost as regularly produces artM cat panics and periods of enforced liqui dation, loss of employment ana vast waste these come as certainly because of It as changes f season come. And its movement and growing power, through usury accumulations, conse quent panlo periods and the gathering of the natural resources into few bands, Is leading to the enthronement in abso lute power of a class of kings, and the complete enslavement of the, masses, who to live must labor on terms which barely enab'.e them to miserably rear children. The national bank currency is secur ed simply, but, as all agree, sufficiently, by government paper, a government promise. Government notes, green backs, are therefore perfectly safe and the best possible currency, the only sort also which can be Issued to meet the needs of all those who muHt borrow, or-whocan economically use capital The rate of Interest controls the volume of the currency, lleduco the rate of interest and more money will be bor rowed and expended for labor.'Uut the only way for money to be kept within call of all at cost (without usury charge) is for the government to conduct the banking business aa well as the postal service. This is what Mr. Ward advo cates in his book of 200 pages. He first analyzes the financial planks of the Omaha platform, our demand for "1 national curreney, safe, sound and flex lble, Issued by the general government only, a full legal tender for all debts, public and private, and that, without the use of banking corporations; a just, equitable and suffcient means of distri bution direct to the people at a tax not exceeding two per cent, per annum, to be provided as set forth in the sub treasury plan of the Farmers' Alliance, or some better systc m." The sub-treasury plan called for sub treasuries or depositories In the several states which should "issue money dl rect to the people, at a tax of not to ex ceed two per cent, per annum, on noo perishable farm products and also upon real estate, with proper limitations up tn the quantity of land and amount of money," Those who are fully acquainted with Its workings know that under the pre sent financial system the currency con tract when It 1 most needed, that H cannot be elastic in volume as is needed and that as a result of demanding more money for lets money (usury) the money has to be periodically hoarded, bringing on seasons like the present, seasons of grave commercial dlHatter and the greatest suffering for million. A better banking system would be a government system which would furnish perfectly safe banks of deposit, which would aUo loan upon good security at coat (one or two per cent.) and serve the simple needs of exchange. Place the eultre banking business in the band of the government, and the expense will not bsa tenth part ff what the money lean er now Ueutaea 01 porrowers. Ana usury could no longer be charged for land and capl'al which money at iot would buy; labor, thervfure would cou trol lU eutlr, product, and each and all could accumulate and enj y wealth in lust tUe degree they chuse to produce It. It sltou'd be borne In in I nd that gov ernmeni bank ot deposit, loan and nc6ne would not differ, except la their Interest tharge, frm the prewaV banking buslnes. The purw of bor toalog would be the sole purine of Increasing wealh through the purrbasm of la'vr and capital (congealed labor Hteref.'re whenever call for loanicould n il ho mt out of dttpoelt lUe lumcii the eurrabcy could and hou!d te la arad la keon all at work aal to Pfxh labor saving aBd wealth multiplying. The volume of the currency so Increas ed would not change the purchasing power cf the dollar, the increase of dollars being only equal to the Increase of wealth. Language cannot picture the univer sal and lasting prosperity and happiness which a eovernment banking system, such as Mr.Ward's book proposes, would undoubtedly provide for and bring to pass. We therefore earnestly commend the book to our readers for the light It will give them on the better financial system proposed, and for the valuable nformatien it contains regarding tne usurious system under which we live, by which we are all being robbed, the system' which is concentrating our wealth and natural resources with such aUrming rapidity Into the hands ot money monopolists, and which ha al ready purchased and mortgaged over half of the foundations of liberty and driven a corresponding percentage of our people Into slavish dependence and povertv . The book Is full of valuable quotations, statistical reports, &c, and gives the most complete history of the bankers-made panic of 1893 whlcn can be found anywhere. Sold y jne Wealth Maker l'ub.

We notice In The Kingdom the fol lowing interesting statements: Official innulry In Hamburg te veals the fact that out of 5,7:w workers. 18, 018 were entirely unemployed, 1.1934 were partially employed, and only 2U,0UU bad regular employment." Js It not strange that men do not take n at first glance at these figures the fact that a great moral wrong la the cause of this, and that It shows most unnatural, foolish and brutal social re- atlons? They are on a gold basis in Germany, and they are not tinkering with toe tariff. Neither are these workers so abundantly supplied with wealth that they do not need longer to produce and exchange goods. The cause of so many millions of werkers the world over being compelled to remain Idle while in suffering need of each others productions, is found In the prevailing idea that it is a good and justifiable thing to get more lubor than you give, more value for less value. Individuals are allowed to do this, to strive for unjust gain, and the result is, the business of exchanging is obstructed and production must cease, because of tk impossible attempt to v '11 bad- to the people the goodt ihty hate pro duced at an adoance over mat they were paid for thtm. They can buy back only such fart of the goods a they received equal value for, The money they pay for rent, or that is kept out of their earnings to provide for interest and net profit claims, reduces by so much their power to buy back what they have In dlyidually and In the aggregate pro duced. And if the usurers (the money land and capital monopolists) choose to accumulate all or a part of this mosey, the same per centage of marketed goods will remain uncalled for, and the result Is periods of enforced Idleness, succeeding seasons of productive labor. The law of commerce la the law of justice, equity, the exchange of equal labor values. It can not be violated without obstructing exchanges, throw ing people out of work and spreading ruin, poverty and slavery. But the world has become so accus tomed to seeing the needy often out of work, that liberty to work at inequit able wages it considered something which must be begged as a favor, and thankfully received. The robber while robbing poses as a benefactor. The usurer contracts for his pound of fleefa, and expects his viotlms to wor ship, to bow, to appreciate hi willing' ness besides, Tnit Cripple Creek miners have been holding the fort at Bull's hill, and the five or six hundred deputies have not dared attack them. They have brsuhed away parchment rights and are fighting for their natural rights In the land, tne mines, where they must have work and sutliolent rewaid for their woik to live. Human law la against them, Natural or Divine law Is not. Profits without- labor, llvlnc by the sweat of others, I contrary to the lHvlno plao and ecu mandmeat.

SHALL WE RESIGN LIBERIY? An American citizen sentenced to jail for the crime ot endeavoring to plead for the poor and against usury while standing upon the steps of the capitol at Washington! An honest, peaceful, law abiding citizen of ample means deprived of his liberty, handcuffed and sent to a work-house prison In the Capitol City tit the United States of America, under the eyes of Congress, May 21st, 1894, be cause be essayed to ask that the starv ing and charity-fed millions might be enabled to escape from the tender mer cies of the usurers who allow none of the landless to labor except as it will profit them, tbat is, the employers! " There was, there was a time when to be an American was to be a sovereign a free man whose rights and liberty no power on earth dared disregard. O Americans, sons of tbe revolution, shall we suffer this unparallelled inso lence, this bold striking down of Indivi dual liberty, this trampling on the per sons of men and citizens by a power which has climbed to the throne and prostituted the court to serve It, shall we be unmoved by all this Tbe friend of the friendless, the unemployed and suffering poor, is In prison; his wrists have been hurt with fetters; his plea the authorities would not hear, and Congress baa refused to investigate tbe acts of violence, perjury and judicial tyranny which he suffered and vblcb condemned him under falue as well as un justifiable charges. The decree is, that the poor must keep out of sight. They may starve, they may suicide, but they must not congregate and choose leaders to speak for them. They will be ad j udged vaga bonds if they ask for work, If they plead for freedom, for common rights restored, for independence. But shall the cause of the destitute and .defenceless go unchamploned? Shall the imprisonment of the three friends who sought of Congress justice for them leave them without friends who shall demand immediate, honor able work for the unemployed? We must face the enthroned plutoc racy and overthrow if, or we shall all be slaves. The refusal to hear the champion of the millions of unemployed and the thrusting him into prison for bis humanity and loyalty to the people and the cause of freedom, U proof abso lute tbat this is now a government of tbe rich and for the rich alone. The eicred right of all men to life and liberty, which this government was or ganized to defend forever, has for at least four million workers and tbelr destitute families been denied, and foul violent hands have been laid upon the persons of the noble men who called governmental and universal attention to them. Tbe champions of the unem ployed have been handcuffed and drag' ged to prUon; the destitute millions whom no man will hire are suffering tbe anxieties aBd agonies of those who face landlords whose demands they cannot meet, and who for food must beg the cold crusts of charity, or steal, or sell their bodies to the rich, or suicide Women and children are being sweat ed, starved and tortured to make profits for the rich. Families by the million are being stifled and poisoned and slow y murdered by the necessity forced up on them to crowd together in most miserably close, unsanitary quarters to reduce rent. Tens of thousands of in nocent babies are being yearly slaugh tered in the cities to increase the rent roll of the landlords, Degradation, Indescribable suffering, constant temptation, the crushing of pirit and the desperation caused by de pendence upon the pitiless profit seek en, are forced upon tne unproteciea poor. Profit, profit, profit from the toil of others, is what the landlords and capitalists all demand. Usurers with thrones built on title deeds control all the opportunities to work that more than halt of our people can approach, and they must compote and struggle wltheaoh other for permission to earn profits for their masters. And when it Is proposed that the hunger-pinched Idle millions work for the whole people for the wealth which they produce, the profit demanding usurers use the court and the government to Imprison tbe men who would cut off their now legal enslaving power. 8TARVATI0N WAQE8 UBJUBTuI ABLE- The rlfht of every man to take honest .,rk wherever ha can cet it and at whatever price he cbooee to accept is Inviolable, and la that right he must and eventually will be proteeied ny an Hi reaourue which are orgaulml In tti suitoorl of law ami oraor.

And tVe "law and order" which supports employers and employes in such de struction of the innocent U net law, is not heaven's order; and there Is not enough force in earth and hell to per petuate it. This so-called right, to contract for starvation wages, capitalism Is howe ver determined to defend, because by to doing It guards Its precious robberies Its princely privileges, its power. At present the governmental power is with it, must answer its call, aBd in the conflicts which are sure to arise, which at Homestead, Ceurd'Alene, and at Cripple Creek last week have arisen, but which in the near future are to be greatly exceeded in array of forces and terribleness, in destruction of life and property, tbere Is to be no yielding on tbe part of the capitalists who demand tne profits 01 eUrvawoa and semi-stsr' vation wages. The workers must either at the ballot box unite to get possession of the government, or they will continue to have the whole organized, equipped and trained military forces of the gov ernment against them, and they will be held In slavery by tbe laws, which allow a monopoly of tbe natural resour ces and by gatllng guns and Winchest ers. Capitalism can only be dethroned at tbe ballot box. THE MIS80URI DEMOCRATS. The Missouri Democrats In State convention rehashed the old political platitudes, generalities which commit them to no definite action; condemned the Republicans as usual, and praised themselves, professing devotion to principles which they never regard; did really stand by tbe Bryan Income tax, which eastern Democrats bitterly denounce as undemocratic; and straddled all over and around the silver question in the following fashion: We therefore demand the free coinage of both gold and silver, and tbe restora tion of the bl metallic standard as it existed under our laws for over forty years prior to the demonstration of the standard silver dollar in 187-'!, and should it become necessary in order to maintain tbe two metals in circulation te readjust the ratio, it should be de termined whether gold has risen or silver has fallen, and whether there lould be a chancre of the gold do'lir t r of both, to the end tbat whatever ratio Is adopted, the lights of both credttor and debtor shall be preserved alike, having in view the demands of the peo- e for an adequate circulating medium. We declare that w are not in favor of the gold monometalism or silver mono- metaiism, but tnat ootn snoum oe cornea at such a ratio as will maintain, the two metals in circulation. This absurd demand was the best DIand could secure ip his own etate and Is a plank that ought to nauseate and repel every out and out 16 to 1 sliver man. But we must give the Missouri Democrats credit for one really strong unequivocal utterance that sounds clear ly populistlc. It is this: We insist upon the Democratic doc trine of Jackson and Bsaton, that all monev insued by tbe authority of con gress shall be issued and Its value main tained by the government, tbat we are opposed to farming out to national banks the right to issue circulating notes; that we are opposed to any fur ther Increase of the Interest bearing debt of the government.

Judge Miller has made his name notorious for all time to come by tbe part he has taken in sending the friends of the unemployed to prison. He has shown himself a monster in human form, a man who, sworn to execute justice and defend the Innocent, has dared to disregard the divine law and lay violent hands upon the persons of those who would plead for the oppressed. Tbo trivial charges, based on an uncon stitutional law, were not even sustained by the evidence, the policemen wbo perjured themselves being contradicted by most reputable witnesses and by the testimony of Mr. Coxey himself. He declared under oath to the jury and again, before sentence was "pronounced, to the judge, that he did not walk oc therms and carried no banner. "I do not appeal for mercy, because I have committed no crime," uald he, "but I do svaa. fur justice." Millet's court, however, ia sot a court of justice. It Is the place where tbose wbo now stand for the Shylocks' gov ernment punish political Ideas tbat are displeasing to tbem, Miller even bad the face to arraign Mr. Coxey severely for his ideas, and said, "Who in the world should be punished for a viola tion of law if you should not, M r. Coxey V" 'I did not violate it," said Mr. Coxey! "Jfou have your head so full of your schemes that you think anything tbat stands In your way is wronar. What right of yours has been abridged in tbe pistrlct of Columbia?" said the judge. He tlien referred to his "absolute folly" and arraignedjhiin as a ''dreamer," and in pronouncing sentence said be wished the defendants had demeaned themselves in court so that he could pronounce a nominal sentence upon them, but their demeanor (self-respecting and erect) had changed his feeling. He therefore ordered them hand cuffed and taken to the "Black Maria" with a dozen white and colored prisoners (who were not hand cuffed) as companions. We never before realized the justness and reasonableness of the 100th Psalm as we do now, with Judge Miller, the tool of plutocracy, and the millions of suffering, trampled on and kicked-around-the-earth unemployed, tens of thousands of whom are being slowly murdered the class whom Mr. Coxey stood for in mind. Justice weighs out to the oppressors what they have weighed out and forced upon the op pressed. It Is this justice which is here cilled for: "They have spoken against me with a lying tongue, iney compassed me about also with words of hatred, and fought against me without a cause For my love they are my adversaries. And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for ray love. "Set thou a wicked man over him, and let Satan stand at his right band. When he shall be judged let blm be condemned; and let his prayer become sin. Let his days be few; and let another take his office. Let hie children be continually vagabonds and 1 eg. Let them ask their bread also out 01 tbelr desolate places. Let the extortioner catch all tbat he hath; nnd let the strangers spoil his labor. Let there be none to extend mercy unto him; neither let there be any to favor his fatherless children. Let his posterity be cut off; la the generation following let their name be blotted out. Let the iniquity of his father be remembered with the Lnrd; and let not the sin of bis. mother be blotted out. Let them be before the Lord continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth. Because tbat he remembered not to show mercy, but persecuted the needy I man, tbat he might slay the broken in heart.
