The papers for some dsji past have contain maps of the seat of war at Bull's Hill, Colorado, showing the for tifications, and the report! hare in formed us of the deatu-dealin? guns and Bpirit of the military miners. A wt! between the sheriff's deputies and the hundreds of miners who were j In fortified possesion and tupplied with great quantities of powder and dynamite, was declared imminent. Blood on both sides has been shed. A number have alao been killed In the coke regions. Conflicts between bod ies of the striking coal miners and mine-owners and non-striking workmen and the railroads continue to cxrcur in a number of the states. There are at leant 200,000 now engaged in the coal strike and about 40,000 more are out of work in consequence. The millions who have boon out of work and reduced to absolute destitution and dependence during the last twelve month, are re ceiving no attention from congress. No money can be obtained except by pay ing usury for It. No labor at all can be obtained by millions. No labor can be obtained by the vast majority of others at work.iexcept on inequitable (net profit) terms. Peepalr and agony Is the portion of those In enforced Idle ness at the bottom. Overwork and crushing csre is the burden of the working millions. But how about those at the top? A New York paper1 reports "the week In socletr." "Society" is anotaer world where they have all the fruits of toll supplied by others. It is a world of princely consumers who live in lux ury and do nothing but feast and dress and play and pursue pleasure. It Is the world that bears with constant crush ing weight upon the shoulders of the workers, whom it despises and has no thought for.exoept now and then when the foundations tremble a little. Then their only thought is, that the wealth makers mast be kept down by the laws and hired soldiers of the wealth takers. This is the way the wealth takers live: la the last week all the world has been either on a coach top inhaling sweet brce.es or hieing oft to Tuxedo, Hempstead or the country cm w. rne Country Club at West Chester, which lust bow in tne perfection 01 iuj spring time beauty the green of the foliage and the ricn deep vernure 01 the turl coming out in tne mostaceiuea contrast has been gay with four-ln- hands, and broakfast and lunebpon par ties have been the order of the day Besides the reeular trips of the public coach Tempest, many men have taken tbelr coacnes out, ana tne lawns ana the clubhouse have been a common meeting ground for friends and ac quaintances The names of some of the proud drones who thus pursue pleamro and produce nothing were added to the above paragraph to please their utter' ly selfish, shameless vanity, bat we care not to print them. The next par agraph we quote entire, afl follows: Next Saturday the usual parade of the New York Coachlnir Club will take lace, and If the day should be nne all ashlonable New York will put on Its holiday erarb and turn out to see the show. Two or three new teams, one recently imported, are, it is said, to ap pear for the first time.

Drouths do not affect the harvests of the people It mentions, The 1osbc9 of others are their gain.

Whether this robbery shall be found to be legal or Illegal it Is one of the crimes against society and one ol tne sins against Heaven which will yet be pun ished. These bond brokers are now called successful financiers, and the mammon wershipers of the world hon or them. But In the future they will be as dishonored as are felons now. WHAT IS 0EBI8TIAKin? It Is not being a church member and praj leg and preaching and teaching, or paying for theee. It Is not words, but olrit. It Is not money, but labor. It Is not charity, but love. It Is not gene rosity, but justice, It Is not Sunday service, but week day, everyday, cease less service. It is not serving God, but serving our fellowmen who need our wisdom, our strength, our love. It Is not laying up treasure upon earth and charging usury for it of those who keep the moth and rust from destroying it. Tnat man Is not a Christian who says bis fellowmen shall bo forced to pay him rent for the privilege of entering Into Cod's natural presence and love. That man is not a Christian who lives by the sweat of others. That man is not a Chris tian who demands more hours of labor or more labor product than he gives. he rich cannot be Christians while either forcing or permitting others to be poor and needy. The comfortable cannot be Christians while they sllow others to be miserable. The citizen who does not strenuously oppose monopoly privileges and class laws is not a Christian. The man who. doe not Buffer while ethers are compelled to Suffer Is not a Christian. The man whose love is not all-embracing is not a Christian. Is there any Christianity (love) in the market place? It seems to be shut out of the world of business. The selfish anarchistic idea prevails that our in terests are divided and that we most and should struggle with each other for gain and place and power to com' mand service. There are no Christians there are none who refuse to gain by others' toil, or none who think it is worth more to serve than to be served Christianity is voluntary socla'lsm. 'Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the lsw of Christ." The strong, the wle to plan, the clear of judg ment to measure values, must not ado to. but take from, the heavy burdens of the weak. There is no division In God's universe and kingdom. He made the earth for all. His love reaches us through the earth. Whoever therefore asks rent for the earth asks rent for God, and sells Him for a price. The same is true of those who monopolize and stll any part of whatGod provides, viz , the and, the air, the sunlight, the forces of steam and . electricity, ' the common stores of coal and ell and iron and other minerals, the Inspirations of invention, the labor economies of capital, of ma chlnery, of applied economic wisdom, and the rarer Individual endowments. The principle of Christianity is sacri flee, service, ministration, mdnstrlal organization. The problem of Chris tianity Is that organization and appli' cation of all individual gifts, mental and nhvslcal endowments, which will in olnt labor with G id (natural energies produce for the equal benefit of all the greatest sum of good things, blessings enjoyments. Christianity Is labor, and labor Is love's revelation, love human and divine. Free labor shares with God the joy of creation, discovers God's heart In natural wealth production, and is the natural moans by which God conveys (or would convey) nimsen through each of us to others, through all to each. That which is not Chris tlanitv Is anarch V. and leads to U own destruction. 0YEBTUR0W THE UbUREES- The extremity of the poor Is the usur er' opportunity lo oppress. Tho pro- letafiun clans, who must uhq mony laud and capital in order to live, mu Ufcor for starvation wagoe when sUrva tlen stares them In the face. The farmers of Nebraska hare already suffortd serious los by drouth, an! a short period mur of dry weather will leave them for th first tlmo In twenty years with almost nothing to harvoat The result wU! bo, the few who havo tuoflv In the bank, or li aned out to their neighbor, will oall.lt la and con iu mo their accumulations during the year la which tary must wait for another harvest. But those wbo have a.) surplus and wbo are out of dt bt will gt down ou their ko and submit to the usurers' terms for a loan, a loan forcing an itrwt irop which dru h aad grasohoprera, II U and flame, death aod judgment never destroy, And tboae who ar already under mnrt gag (Nebratka farms now have M UOO.OOO of mortgag debt, and tio.lani, a 0 worth ot wheat aad cora and eihr product ar talUdtor yearly to pay tb latemt, croit or a crop) must.

In the first place they would all along have been saving the 10,000,000 a year (clear loss) to meet mortgage interest demands. This saved would in from ten to fourteen years have paid off each and every mortgage. Then when once in twenty years or so crops failed the farmers could borrow of the gov ernment without interest enough money to live on f6r a year; and so be saved all fear, all anxiety and suffering. It Is not debt but usury that is eating us up and reducing us to dependence and slavery. The debt that does not draw legal in terest, that dm not grow of itself, is not dangerous to liberty. Possibly the prospective loss of badly needed crops Is necessary to wake up more of the voters of Nebraska to de mand and vote or legislation which will effectually take them out of the hands of monopolists and usurers. A NEW POLiriOAL VISION. I'rof. George D. Herron is to deliver tho commencement oration at the State University next week, June 13th, and his subject is to be, "A New Political Vision." Our readers already know what we think of this man. We believe him to be the great moral teacher of the age, a man in whom dwells more of the Christ spirit, more wisdom, more love, more law, more knowledge of human needs and duties, more of the present message of God to men, than has been received by any other. Prof. Herron fills the chair of Applied Christianity In Iowa College. But his addresses and published lectures have also command ed the attention of both the false and true leaders of Christendom. He is preaching "the gospel to the poor," to the rich also, a gospel which has not been distinctly heard for many centuries. 1 He Is attacking the respect able selfishness, the individualism, tbe highest wisdom of the business world, which the church believes in and all are ruled by, and is showing what the law of love requires. He is burling white hot moral convictions, burning divine truths, at the consciences of men, and is calling together all lovers of righteousness, all who will make ser vice Instead of gain tbelr choice. Prof. Herron recognizes ene law which s to direct and organize men and be the sum and substance f all the laws of states and nations. He sees that our present statutes which fence the earth and sustain monopolists are eatanic, that they enable certain selfish men to shut their fellowmen away from God and charge rent or profits for admis sion to bis presence and benefits. He sees that equal natural rights are being trampled on, not only by the Individu ally cunning, clear-headed and selfish, but by the monopoly enthroned. Audhe sees In the political uprising In tho west a force that is making for righteousness. It Is concerning the new political move ment thnt he will speak here, with tbe object to show that God is in it, calling authoritatively for justice, and uniting the hearts of the people to defend and help one another. He will 6how not only what is the uniting force of the movement, but whut it Is the beginning of, what it will lead to. He will speak notsimDlvta the young men ot the State University and the other hun dreds who can crowd within the hear log of his voice, but. to the American nation and In the moat critical period of its history. TEE INDIANA CONVENTION. The Ponulists of Indiana held their state convention May 31 uilh2,952 dele gates in attendance. The party Is grow lng and rapiuly, remember. The con vention was as full of enthusiasm as its numbers would naturally make It. It adopted a preamble and platform of great length and nominated a ticket with President C A. Iloblnson of tho National Farmers Mutual Benefit Ass elation at the head, as ondldate for secretary of state. Mr. Byiblnson Is the best possible man to bead tho ticket, the leader ot the organic 4 faer, a man ( fioo abilities, most wldslj known anl vory popular. Th Omaha platform was endorsed. Th Initiative and referendum aad pro- portl- nl representation by means of in amendment to tht state convention, w.re demanded. "Tho rtgot to vote Is Inherent In citizenship Irrespective of sex," wa declared. An Inheritance tax was called for.

Possibly here and there a man in our ranks has ridden on a rail road pass without realizing that U was given as a bribe, as a favor to be' re turned; but such thoughtlessness and mental density are Inexcusable in any of our leaders. The furnishing of passes Is the chief means by which the corporations con trol primaries and conventions and legislatures. Passes are not given be cause the railroads Intend to cany passengers for nothing. They are not, as Judge Hubbard observed ' recently, doing a charity business. The man who accepts their favors Is at their mercy if he faiU to do their bidding. They have the power to expose him, and will not fall to do it, if he has fail ed to guard their interests and later secures a nomination for office. No man who has been riding on a railroad pass can be safely chosen to lead us In the comlBg campaign. Fac similes of his bribe will be flashed In the faces of the voters before election day, unless he makes terms with the corporations, which would be worse yet lor our cause. We must have clean men to lead us, and we can choose from any number of men whose reputation Is without a shadow or a stain, Let this important matter be borne in mind when delegates a- instructed aod in convention. THE PLOTS OF TEE BANKERS. Representative Springer of Illinois has introduced a banking bill into the House which is probably the pet meas ure of the bankers. It would provide that state, county and municipal bonds be made the basis on which, to issue a favored class bank note currency which shall be made a legal tender, but pledge redemption in coin. , It is merely aa extension or variation of the present debt (bond) basis currency. Now notice, first, such a bill is an ad mission that there is not enough gold and silver to furnish a money supply. But the agreement to pay gold and silver, dollar for dollar, when the gold and silver is not retained to meet the obligation, aad when, even if it were retained, the paper exceeds it in vol-J umes, is an agreement to do an impos sible thing. If then it Is universally admitted that more money is needed than gold, or gold and silver, will pro vide, and the people's bonds for a cer tain amount of property are the secur ity proposed, what earthly reason is there why all property owners should not be allowed to issue currency, or be provided with legal tender notes on their ample security? Why Is not the real estate of farmers as good a money basis as the municipal, county or stato bonds of bondholders? But, you see, If the government should allow each and every man to make use of his ample credit without having to buy credit of the bankers, It would effectually and forever destroy the usury business, the enormous drain ot in terest would be saved by the wealth pro ducersand the Shylock class would be compelled to produce as well as others. The Springer bill is planned to per petuate the money monopoly. The national debt must all be paid, if not refunded, before 1!07, and some thing must be done, the bankers see, to retain control of the currency. The old banks propose either state banks of issue or national banks, and a currency based on the people's debts, which debts are based on the people's property. And this currency, costing the usurers not over a cent on the dol' lar, the people can only get b contract ing and furnishing security to pay heavy Interest for. The People's party proposes that money be issued by the gcr eral govern ment upon good security direct to all the people, Instead of to the Shylock fraternity. And so Issued we should not see the money periodically drawn In Interest paj menis Into the vaults of the bankers, and the measureless suffer ing of the unemployed, moneyless, des tliuto million!;. The fight Is on between tho people and the money power. Tub News of June 1 Is Indebted to our political columns for a halt column of news Items regarding political can olclates. It Is of course very Interest ing ntattor, but more Interesting at first hand. When served up second band It would be worth whll to Indicate where Ucamefiom, eh, Dubblaa?

Idleness, lack of earnings, re duces demand for goods. Reduction ol income and fear of want are every . month increasing among the middle class the number who econom ize, and are forcing economies to ba nvVe and more rigid. In consequence more are each month being thrown out of work and wages are being reduced to or be low the living limit. And as economics increase demand tov labor lessens, prices fall, and the ten dency Is for bad times to make worse times, and for worse times to make still worse times, till tbe increas ing strain continued becomes unendur able. Hitherto in our periods of busi ness depression the explosion point of suffering has not been reached. Fam ines in other countries or bountiful crop In our own have given a basis for a re newal of industry and we have weather ed the storm. But let there come a great crop failure this year and the stratu will be too terrible. The poor are now forming armies. Let a great food famine come, ani where there are now tens there would be thousands, where thero are thous ands there would be millions wbo would march where the provisions of tho rich would be stored, and the law , of the land would be swept aside by the law of self-preservation. God grant that tbe peril in view may be providentially averted. It cannot be averted by legislation, for tbe monev " power and tho corporations control Congress. If averted this time it Is simply a delayed danger, which in the next period of financial depression will again threaten us with revolution and ruin. Tub Populists of Illinois held an en thusiastic state convention the 29th ult., nominated a state ticket, endorsed the Omaha platform as the second Dec- aration of Independence; endorsed tbe ndustrial and political platform of the federation of Labor (plank 10 excepted) adopted at its last annual meeting; de nounced tho license system of dealing' with the liquor traffic, which makes It one of the most corrupt monopolies and political menace, and demanded whenever a majority of the people pe titioned for its sale that such 6ale of 'quors shall be conducted by the state ? without profit. Think what it means to have a wife and children and no money to meet rent, no work to obtain money, no goods to pawn and no prospect butstsrvatlou. or separation and pauperism. When Id such condition one naturally gets doc-' perate and say's, what is the law that we should die or be degraded under if Lawmakers, have a care. The strain increases. The suffering is fearful. Tub Populists of California have held a rousing state convention. The asso ciated press gave us no Idea of it, but we have got the news by freight. Tbe convention was full of religion and It was good to be there. Thomas V. Ca tor, the Populist orator of San Fraueis- co, made a great speech. A storm Is coming, a storm of wrath despair and violence. It yon want the country Baved get into the People' party and devote all your energies to recruiting its ranks. It is only by quick growth and swift justice that tbe Impending destruction can ba averted.
