By Thomas E. HilL
This is a large octavo book of 450 pages, eradensed by tabulation
into a small book that it may be universally sold and circulated at a
low price. -
Its purpose is to clearly present, in a manner entirely non-partisan,
tbe merit attaching to each party. -Ne' partiality is shown in behalf
ol any political organization. Like the dictionary, it simply defines.
It gives the best-known argument, in favor of each, and leaves tbe
reader free to choose which he will serve.
It treats upon tbe important live issues of the time, and is an indis
pensable work to people who would intelligently discuss tbe political
situation. It is a very exhaustive compendium of Political Facts,
and literally answers thousands of questions. To illustrate:
What r Democratic principle!
What does a single tax advocate propose '
If all tax ni placed on land, what would
be tbe tax on tbe farm!
What would be tbe tax on subarban prop
erty, and now much on the acre worth two

Adopted by tbe Convention at Om
aha Nebraska, July 4, 1802.
Assembled upon the one hundred and
f sixteenth anniversary of the Declaration
independence, the People's Party of
erica, in ineir urso uttiiuutti uuuveu
.a, invoking upon their action the
sings of Almighty God, puts forth in
ife name, and on behalf of the people of
s tie country, the following preamble and
declaration of principles:
The conditions which surround us best
justify our co-operation; we meet in the
midst of a nation brought to the verge
of moral, political and material ruin.
Corruption dominates the ballot box,
the legislatures, the Congress, and
touches even the ermine of the
bench. The people are demoralized;
-most of the states have been compelled
to isolate tbe voters at the polling places
to pijevent universal intimidation or
bribery) The newspapers are largely
subsidized or muzzled; public opinion
silenced; business prostrated; our homes
covered with mortgages; labor impover
ished; and the land concentrating in the
hands of the capitalists. The urban
workmen are denied the right of organi
sation for self-protection; imported pau
perized labor beats down their wages; a
hireling army, unrecognized by our law,
is established to shoot them down; and
they are rapidly degenerating into Euro
pean conditions. The fruits of the toil of
millions are boldly stolen to build up
- Cossal fortunes for a few, unprecedented
Htbe history of mankind, and the pos
jjfsorsof these in turn despise the re
public and endanger liberty. From the
- same prolific womb of governmental in
justice we breed the two great classes
tramps and millionaires.
The national power to create money
is appropriated to enrich bondholders; a
vast public debt, payable in legal tender
currency, has been funded intogold-bear-ing
bonds, thereby adding millions to
the burdens of the people.
Silver, which has been accepted as coin
since the dawn of history, has been de
monetized to add to the purchasingpow
er of gold, by decreasing the value of all
forms of property, as well as human la
bor, and the supply of currency is pur
posely abridged to fatten usurers, bank
rupt enterprise, andeuslave industry.
vast conspiracy against mankind has
been organized on two continents, and
it is rapidly taking possession of the

store the government of the Republic to
the hands of "the plain people," with
whose class it originated. Weassert our
purposes to be identical with the purpose
of the national constitution: "to forma
more perfect union, establish justice, in
sure domestic tranquility, provide for the
common defense, promote the general
welfare, and secure the blessingsof liberty
ourselves and our posterity."

See "Hill's Political History of the United
civil war is over and that every passion
and resentment which grew out of it must
die with it; and that we must be in fact,
as we are in name, one united brother
hood. Our country finds itself confront
ed by conditions for which there is no
precedent in the history the world.
Our annual agricultural productions
amount to billions of dollars in value,
which must within a few weeks or months
be exchanged for billions of dollars of
commodities consumed in their produc
tion; the existing currency supply is
wholly inadequate to make this exchange.
The results are falling prices, the forma
tion of combines and rings, and tbe im
poverishment of theproducingclass. We
pledge ourselves that if given power we
will labor to correct these evils by wise
and reasonable legislation, in accordance
with the terms of our platform.
We believe that the powers of govern
mentin other words, of the people
should be expanded (as in the case of the
postal service) as rapidly and as far as
the good sense of an intelligent people,
and the teachings of experience, shall
tastily; to tbe end that oppression, in
justice and poverty shall eventually cease
in the land.
While our sympathies as a party of re
form are naturally upon the side of every
proposition which will tend to make men
intelligent, virtuous and temperate, we
nevertheless regard these questions im
portant as they are as secondary to the
great issues now pressing for solution;
and upon which not only our individual
prosperity, but the very existence of free
institutions depends; and we ask all men
to first help us to determine whether we
are to have a republic to administer, be
fore we differ as to the conditions upon
which it is to be administered; believing
that the forces of reform thiB day organ
ized will never cease to move forward un
til every wrong is righted and equal pri
vileges established for all the men and
women of this country.
We declare, therefore,
UNION OF THE PEOPLE.
First, That the uuion of the labor
forces of the United States this day con
summated, shall be permanent and per
petual; may its spiritenter into allheai ts
for the salvation of the republic and the
uplifting of mankind.
Second, Wealth belongs to him who
creates it; and every dollar taken from
industry, without an equivalent, is rob-,
bery. "If any man will not work neither
shall he eat." The interests of rural and
civic labor are tbe same; their enemies
Third. We believe that the time has
come when tbe railroad corporations
will either own the people or the people
must own the railroads; and should the
government enter upon the work of own
ing and managing the railroads, we
should favor an amendment to the con
stitution by which all persons engaged
In the government service shall be pro
tected by civil service regulations of the
most rigid character, so as to prevent
the increase of the power of tbe national
administration by tbe use of such addi
tional gonernment employes.
We damand a national currency, safe,
sound and flexible; issued by the general
government only; a full legal tender for
all debts public and orivate; and that
witnout tne use ot DanKingeorporations;
a just equitable and efficient means of
distribution direct to the people, at a tax
not to exceed 2 per cent per annum, to
be provided as set forth in the sub-treasury
plan of the Farmers' Alliance, or
some better system; also by payments in
discharge of its obligations for public
We demand free and unlimited coinage
of silver and gold ai the present legal
ration of 16 to 1.
We demand that the amount of cir
culating medium be speedily increased to
not less thau $50 per capita.
We demand a graduated income tax.
We believe that the money of the
country should be kept, as much as pos
sible, in the hands of the people; and
hence we demand that all state and na
tional revenues shall be limited to the
necessary expenses of the government,
economically and honestly administered.
We demaud tbat postal savings banks
beestablished by the government for the
and the facilitation of exchange.
Transportation being a means of ex
change and a public necessity; the gov
ernment should own and operate the
railroads in the interest of the people.
Tbe telegraph and telephone, like the
postcfBoe system, being a necessity, for
the transmissionof news, should be owned
and operated by tbe government in the
interests of tbe people.
The land, including all natural re
sources of wealth, is the heritage of the
people, and should not be monopolised
for speculative purposes; and alien owner
ship of land should be prohibited. All
land now held by railroads aid other
corporations in excess of their actual
needs, and all lands now owned by
aliens, should be reclaimed by tbe gov
ernment and held for actual settlers
The following resolutions were offered
independent of the platform, and were
adopted, as expressive of the sentiments

the further restriction of undesirable
Resolved, That we cordially sympa
thize with the efforts of organized work

demand a rigid enforcement of the exist

mercenaries, known as the Pinkerton
system, as a menace to our liberties, and
we demand itsabolition,and wecondemn

At the) Crow and Iower Ural Asjenelet
In South Dakota Mot a Bushel of

Agencies la the Seme
Boat or Worse.
Washington, Dec 17. Many of the
Indians, the agents report, encour
aged by fair spring weather, made
preparations for large crops, but the
hot winds and drouth caused small
harvests and on some reservations
total failure of the crops.
At the Crow Creek and Lower Brule
agency in South Dakota, not a bushel
of grain was harvested nor any veg
etables gathered. The old brutal
method of slaughtering beef cattle
for issue has been abandoned and the
construction of the new slaughter
house is considered of great impor
tance. Among the Crow Creeks
the customary weekly dances
have been stopped and dancing
allowed only twice a month
with an enforced abandonment of ex
citing speeches and the custom of
throwing away property during the
dancing. For the first time in their
history the Crows are supplying the
beef cattle for the ration issue. The
disaffected element of the Lower
Brules who have been living south of
White river on the Rosebud reserva
tion have, with the exception of ten
families, gone on their reservation
and are fast becoming settled. The
handling of these Indians, who are
enrolled at tbe Lower Brule agency
and draw rations there, has been a
difficult undertaking owing to the
opposition among the Indians and
some of the whites.
Whole fields of grain were destroy
ed by the gophers at the Devil's Lake
agency, Fort Trotten, N. D., and
this is held largely responsible for
the great misfortune of the Indians
during the year. These Indians are
poor and the loss of a horse or ox
means the abandonment of a farm.
Sharp disciplinary treatment has
stopped the heretofore frequent un
authorized killing of stock and horned
stock is rapidly increasing.
Drouths and blighting hot winds
have made the Standing Rock agency
unadapted to agriculture, and this
year many crops were total failures.
This uncertainty Of raising crops has
made stock raising the leading in
dustry, and in this, considerable pro
gress has been made.
The Indians at the Forest City
agency, S. D., with the exception of
the settlement of 950 at Cherry creek,
favor taking allotments in severalty.
The Indians on the Uintah and
Ouray reservation in Utah are still
far from the high road to prosperity
and civilization, according to the an
nual report of Major Frandlett, the
agent They look upon efforts made
in their behalf with distrust, and as
endangering their own rights in the
reservation. They are slow to ap
preciate school privileges, and cling
to the idea that sending children to
school is a favor conferred on the
agent. The Uintahs have doubled
their farming acreage and have
evinced great interest in crop cultiva
tion. The Uncomphagres have given
little encouragement or assistance to
The allotments in severalty of the
lands of the Coeur d'Alene Indians,
who were using valuable lands for
mere grazing purposes, is related by
Captain Budd of the Colville agency
in Washington. The work of remov
ing the Upper and Middle Spokanes
from the vicinity of Spokane Falls
has proved a slow, tedious process,
necessitating considerable work for
the agent during tbe year.

tiothaaa Bankers en Flnaar.
WAHixero.v, Dec. 17. Great inter
est was manifested to-day in the clos
ing bearing on the question of cur
rency revision before the committee
on banking and currency of the
bouse. Secretary Carlisle was present
at the opening. The bankers to be
heard represented two widely diverg
ent views President (i. G. Williams
of the Chemical national bank of
New York presenting the prevailing
view among bankers, and W. P. St.
John of the Mercantile bank of New
York the Eastern view favorable to
ine oanK ot Mr. Williams, wbo ap
peared next, has the largest deposits
in the United States. "The situation
is one requiring firmness and common
sense," said he. "The first problem
in our clumsy and conglomerated
financial system is the disposition to
be made of our legal tender notes."
He urged that these notes should
be funded 150,000,000 at a time until
eliminated from the financial system.
Bonds at 3 per cent should be re
ceived as security for national bank
notes on a basis of par for the bonds,
the government to have a first lien
on the assets of the bank. These
notes should be redeemable in New
York city and, issued in sufficient
volume, would furnish adequate elas
ticity to the currency. The tax on
the circulation of national banks
should at once be removed.
President St John lent much spirit
to the hearing by the vigor of his
statements. "Under official dicta
tion," began he, "tutored by one of
the most aggressive of all our handful
of "goldites" in the United States,
congress fiddles with bank notes,
while the burning issue is our pri
mary money coin. Identically tu
tored, our chief executive has re
quired his secretary to abandon the
option conferred by the law upon the
United States and grant to holders of
the United States notes the right to
exact gold always.silver never.as their
redeeming coin. Had the option to
redeem in silver dollars been exer
cised boldly at the time when ouly
$3,000,000 were owned by the United
States with an ownership of ?llfl,000,
000 in gold, possible alarm could have
been laughed to scorn. To attempt to
seize upon and exercise the option
now, under immediate protective con
ditions of the treasury, would be to
court all the perils of disaster."

General Currency Ils
Washington, Dec 17. Ex-Repre
sentative Warner of Ohio, president
of the Bimetallic league, addressed
the house bankintr and currency com
mittee yesterday on the currency,,
going into the principles of the entire
currency question. lie urged that an
elastic currency, such as Secretary
Carlisle suggests, was an impossibili
ty, and that prices rose as fast as cur
rency increased. Mr. Warner said
the history of tlie world proved that
the gold standard could not be main
tained by giving to the banks the
power of expanding the currency..
He was amazed that this proposition,
should be made in this enlightened
age, in the face of the financial ex
periences of the world. '
A long discussion arose between.
