THE WEALTH MAKERS. objects of our organisation ars to save ouraelves and others from the tempta tions and evils of selfishness, from the compulsory straggling with one another for gain, from the necessity of steeling the heart and hoarding against anon certain amount of future need and possi ble loss; that we may love and serve without loss, in safety,' and insure our selves perfectly against all future needs; that we may live in a social atmosphere of love and economize labor and produce the greatest possible surplus to be used in spreading a knowledge of the indus trial salvation we have by organization established. The question has been asked, "Will not selfish men work their way into our Christian corporation and community?" We will answer by asking another, Will an unselfish way of living attract the selfish? If it will we shall have practi cally bound and cast out the great tempter aud deceiver. But cousider an. other thing. We are not coming to gether to get rich or to live in luxury aud ease so long as poverty and suffer ing are all about us in the outside world. We shall live frugally because, our love extending to all without our organiza tion, we cannot bear to be selfish as a body. Therefore, we shall devote our surplus first to increasing our capital where we can economize labor, nrov iding ourselves with whatever will increase our strength, skill and effectiveness, aud all the balance will be used to tench those outside the Christian indus trial way of salvation. There will be labor for all, self-denial for all and the object always before us of saving the world, lifting men out of it into the king dom of unselfishness. We shall our selves be only partiaHy saved until all men are saved, and cannot as individuals conscientiously consume more wealth than we need to increase our usefulness. WE SEOOSD THE MOTION We move that at the next national convention the finance plank of the People's party platform be made to read as follows: We demand a national currency, safe sound and flexible, consisting of gold and silver, coined at the ration of 16 to 1, and full legal tender, absolute paper money, issued direct to the people by the people by the general government only, in payment of current appropriations, in volume sufficient to properly transact the business of the country, and distrib uted and kept in circulation through the .medium of government banks of deposit, loan and discount. Who will second the motion? The Other Side. The Wealth Makers seconds the mo tion most heartily. We recognize that we must have something to keep money in circulation, or, it will acquire the power of commanding interest. Interest is the tribute we pay to money monopolists. Interest is what puts a drag and periodi cal stoppage on the circulation of the J 1 - 1 - t 3 A J currency, cue excuougo ui jji uuuuio uuu the power to keep producing. The mere issue of money will not save it from the grasp of land and capital monopolists, and once drawn into their hands it can not be put into use again without agree ing to pay back more than was borrowed. With a government banking system the people can borrow all the money they need to use at cost of investigating and caring for securities, probably not to ex ceed one per cent a year, and all money will be kept in circulation all the time. There wan a Democratic avalanche two years ago, caused by discontent, falling prices and increasingly hard work to live. Full power was given the Demo crats in Congress and the White House, and conditions changed from bad to - worse, with no legislation except closing the mints against silver. Notwithstand ing the distressingly low and lowering prices, which do not repay cost of pro duction, gold is still going out of the country, and another $50,000,000 issue of bonds is reported decided on by the administration. Now what will the Republicans do to satisfy the suffering people? Touch the money question? No, for nine-tenths of them supported the Democratic bill to close the mints against silver.. Will they tinker with the tariff? "They cannot pass a bill raising the tariff, and if they could it would not raise wages a particle. Their tendency has been downward for twenty years. There fore the poor dupes who have believed Republican promises and voted them power are doomed to disappointment. cdge Stark did himself the honjrof beating his neighbor, Ilainer, in his own county. In such a year, with all the tide against the Populists, it was a great per sonal victor,,.. U?at? La h jitei; by the most unscrupulous and outrageously mean tricks and schemes of his opponent, and even secretly slandered in his own county, he yet commanded enough votes in his and Hainer's homecounty to carry it. No more effective canvass was made than the six weeks' splendid speaking which Stark put in. But for the tidal wave which swept over the nation, and which carried all before it in Gage and other Republican counties, we should now have Judge Stark to nobly repre sent the Fourth district of Nebraska.

Tenth Street, Lincoln, - - Neb. Prof. Herron is now east on a lectur ing tour. He will deliver a Beries of lec tures at Detroit, Michigan, and in New York and New England. Our readers will be pleased to find in this issue a con densation of one of his latest lectures on Sociology. It is reported specially for The Wealth Makers. His new book, "The Christian State," he writes us, will be published in January. MUSIO FOB THE MASSES- Our song book, Armageddon, is what our great industrial political movement has been long in need of. Its value is recognized and its songs will be the songs of the workers every where, in their homes and the social and political meetings. They alone furnish a very thorough edu. cation in social questions, an education for both heart and head. We believe no book of any sort placed upon the market has more tban a fraction of its power to do good at the present time; no book has in it so much power to stir the hearts of the people and kindle determination and enthusiasm; no presentation of truth can be made to reach and effect so many as the truth that is set to fine music and sung to the people. The Commander-in-chief of the Indus trial Legion of America writes under date October 4th, as follows: "Your song book is the very best, and fills a long-felt want in the party. It is a song book; it is not machine rot, but genuine high grade words and music. I shall issue a circular in a few days and recommend it to the Industrial Legion. I congratulate you on your great work. The whole country will sing this music if you can reach the people."

If you are in arrears on subscrip tion to The Wealth Makers, you will receive a letter soon, telling you how much you owe, and earnestly re questing you to pay up and send in a dollar for your renewal for another year. The love you have for the prin ciples of the Populist party may be measured by the response you make to this appeal. We do not wish to be compelled to discontinue the paper to a single subscriber, but shall have to do so if you don't pay for it. If you are a Populist you ought not to wait till we ask you for money which yon should have Bent us a year ago. We know it is hard to get, but in many cases the persons who are in most need of it are more prompt in renewing their subscription than others who can well afford to pay. It has been a wonder to us that many of our subscribers who are holding good positions, county offices in some instances, have paid no attention to our notices of expiration, while many others who could ill afford the money have paid a year in advance and given us kind and helpful words of appreciation. We have done the best we. could, and have placed The vy ealth Makers on a sound financial foundation; but to you who are owing us on back subscription, we must say that, in justice to ourselves, we can no longer send the paper to you. If yon have not already, you soon will receive a statement of the amount you owe us, and if we do not hear from you immediately your name will be stricken from our list. To those of our friends who have stood by us through sunshine and shadow we express our hearty thanks, uud assure them that we shall spare no time and expense to give them the best paper possible.
