THE WEALTH MAKERS x H JILL'S POLITICAL ' UNITED STATES, By Thomas E. HilL This is a large octavo book of 450 pages, condensed 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, the merit attaching to each party. No partiality is shown in behalf of any political organization. Like the dictionary, it simply defines. It gives the best-known argument in favor of each, and leaves the reader free to choose which be will serve. It treats upon the important live issues a! the time, and is an indis pensable work to people who would intelligently discuss the political situation. It is a very exhaustive compendium of Political Facts, and literally answers thousands of questions. To illustrate: What are Democratic principles! What does a single tax advocate propose If all tax was placed on land, what would be the tax on the farm! What would be the tax on suburban prop erty, and how much on the acre worth two million dollars in the center of the city! What does a Republican beUevef Why be a Republican and favor high pro tective tariff! - What ore J arguments for and against protectUsaf What do UsVe(alUte want " What wouM be toec-j'"otu,tf Bxirl principles prevailed) What do the Populist desire! If government owned and operated the banks, and banks never failed, and people never bid their money and all money came out and Into active circulation, and money was so abundant that interest became low, and all enterprise started up and everybody bad employment, what then! What do the Nationalists want! Why nationalize the railroads, the coal mines and various Industries! What do the eight-hour advocates pro pone! If working certain hours yields cer tain pront, how could working less hours yield more profit! How could women be benefited by voting! What started the financial panio of 1883! Who commenced the trade agalnat sliver, that resulted in the repeal of the Sherman law!

PEOPLK e PLATFORM. Adopted by the Convention at Om aha Nebraska, July 4, 1892. Assembled upon the one hundred and sixteenth anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, the People's Party of America, in their first national conven tion, invoking upon their action the blessings of Almighty God, puts forth in the name, and on behalf of the people of the country, the following preamble and declaration of principles: The conditions which surround as 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 the voters at the polling places to prevent universal intimidation or brjbury. 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 np colossal fortunes for a few, unprecedented in the history of mankind, and the pos sessors of 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 into gold-bearing 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 purchasing pow 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, and enslave industry. A vast conspiracy against mankind has been organised on two continents, and it is rapidly taking possession of the world. If not met and overthrown at nee it forebodes terrible social convul sions, the destruction of civilization, or the establishment of an absolute despot ism. We have witnessed for more than quarter of a century the struggles of the two great political parties for power and plunder, while grievous wrongs have been inflicted upon the suffering people. We charge that the controlling iufluence dominating both these parties have per mitted the existing dreadful conditions to develop, without serious effort to prevent or restrain them. Neither do they now promise us any substantial reform. They have agreed together to ignore, in the coming cam paign, every issue but one. They pro- pose to arown tne outcries 01 a plundered people with the uproar of a sham battle over the tariff; so that capitalists, corpo rations, national banks, rings, trusts, Watered stock, the demonetization of sil Ter, and the oppressions of the usurers may ail be lost sight of. They propose to sacrifice our homes, lives tnd children on the altar of Mammon; to destroy the multitude in order to secire corruption funds from the millionaires. Assembled on the anniversary of the birthday of the nation, and tilled with the spirit of the grand generation of men, who estab lished our independence, we seek to re store the government of the Republio 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 blessings of liberty ourselves and our posterity." We declare that this republic can only endure as a free government while built upon the love of the whole people for each other and for the nation; that it cannot be pinned together by bayonets, that the HISTORY OF THE were drawn oat of the banks and hidden within a period ol ninety da) si Who was President of the United States in 1849-ISjS 18691 Who hare been the orcupantsof the presi dential chair since 18781 .

What has thrown so many people Into idleness of late years! Why so many tramps! What la ihe history of the Coxey move ment! When did the coal miners' strike begin and what was the extent of that movement! What are the facts abent the Pullman strike, the American Railway Union and the boycott of the Pullman cans! What ase the remedies proposed wher by ' capital and labor may each have Justice! See "Hill's Political History or tin United States," 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 Srecedent in the history of. the world, ur annual agricultural productions mount 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 thisexchange. The results are falling prices, the forma tion of combines and rings, and the im poverishment of the producing class. We pledge ourselves that if given power we will labor to correct these evils by wis 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 jnstify; to the 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 this day organ ized will never cease to move forward un til every wrong is righted and equal pri vileges established for ail the men and women of this country. We declare, therefore, UNION OF THE PEOPLE. First, That the union of the labor forces of the United States this day con summated, shall be permanent and per petual; may its spirit en ter into all hearts 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 hall he eat." The interests of rural and civic labor are the same; their enemies re identical. Third. We believe that the time has corns when the railroad corporatious 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, ws 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 the national administration by the use of such addi tional gonernment employes. FINANCE. We damand a national currency, safe, sound and flexible; issued by the general government only; a full legal tender for 11 debts public and private; and that witnout tne use ot banmngcorporations; 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 Bet forth in the sub-treasury plan of the Farmers' Alliance, or some better systetn; also by payments in discharge of its obligations for public improvements: We demand free and unlimited coinage of silver and gold at the present legal ration of 16 to 1. We demand that the amount of cir culating medium be speedily inereased to not less than $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 governmen t, economically and honestly administered. We demand that postal savings banks beestablished by the government for the safe deposit of ths earnings of the people and the facilitation of exchange. TtANSPORTATIOIf. . Transportation being means of ex change and public necensity; the gov ernment should own and operate ths railroads in the interest of the people. Ths telegraph and telephone, like ths postcifice system, being a neeensity, for ths transinissionof news, should be owned and operated by the government in the interests of ths people. LANDS. Ths land, including all natural re sources ot wealth, is the heritage of the people, and should not be monopolised tor speculative purposes; and alien owner ship of land should be prohibited. All land now held by railroads and other corporations in excess of their actual needs, and all lands now owned by aliens, should be reclaimed by the gov ernment and held for actual settlers only. RESOLUTIONS. The following resolutions were offered independent of the platform, and were adopted, as expressive of the sentiments of the convention: Resolved, That ws demand a free ballot and a fair count in all electious, and pledge ourselves to secure to it every legal voter without federal intervention, through the adoption by the states of the unperverted Australian secret ballot system. Resolved, That the revenue derived from graduated income tax should be appli ed to the reduction ol the burden of taxa tion now levied upon the domestic in dustries of this couutry. Resolved, That we pledge our support to fair and liberal pensions o ex-Union soldiers and sailors. Resolved, Tha. we condemn the fallacy of protecting American labor under the present system, which opens our ports to the pauper and criminal classes of the world, and crowds out our wage-earners and we denounce the present ineffective law against contract labor, and demand the further restriction of undesirable immigration. Resolved, That we cordially sympa thize with the efforts of organized work ingmen to shorter the hours of labor and demand a rigid enforcement of the exist ing eight-hour law on government work, and ask that a penalty clause be added to said law. Resolved, That we regard the main tenance of a large standing army of mercenaries, known as the Pinkerton system, as a menace to our liberties, and we demand its abolition, and we condemn the recent invasion of the Territory of Wyoming . by the hired assassins of Plutocracy, assisted by Federal officers. Resolved, That we commend to the thoughtful consideration of the people and the reform press, the-legislative sys tem known as the Initiative and Referen dum. Resolved, That we favor a constitu tional provision limiting the office of a president and vice president to one term, and providing for ' the election of the senators by a direct vote of the people. Resolved, That we oppose any subsidy or national aid to any private corpora tion for any purpose. H. E. Taubeneck, Chairman, Marshall, Illinois. J. H. Turner, Secretary, Georgia. Lawrence McFarland, Secretary, New York. M. C. Rankin, Treasurer, Terre Haute, Indiana. No Financial Action Taken. Washington, Jan. 1 4. The meeting of the senate finance committee to day was devoted to a discussion of the Vest and McPherson financial bills which were presented yester day. No action was taken and the committee adjourned until Monday, when it is expected that Mr. Jones will present a third bill It was stated the prospects of financial leg islation had not been brightened ma terially by the meeting. Senator Jones was not present Must i.ive fjp l'l Secret. Cleveland, Ohio, Jan. 14. Judge Stone of the common pleas court to day ordered an attachment issued for Attorney W. I. Shupe, who a few days ago testified before the coroner that he knew the murderer of General Freight Agent Cavan of the Valley railway, but declined to tell the name of the party on the ground that he was a client. The court decided that Shupe must give the information or be held for contempt. Urag-nnyana Shot Down, -Buenos Ayres, Jan. 14. A detach ment of Brazilian troops whioh was hotly pursuing a number of insurg ents in the province of Rio Grande do Sul crossed the Uuruguayan frontier. A force of Uruguayan troops opposed the advance of the Brazilians and the two detachments opened fire on each other with the result that one Uru guayan officer and three Uruguayan soldiers were killed.

Decomposing Without Fermentation One Woman's Wy of Halting poultry Bumble Foot firm Notes, Etc. Clover FertUlzer. I have been for a number of years experimenting some on clover as a fertilizer. I have at different .times plowed down green clover, expecting great results from it, but always was disappointed in my expectations. The plowing down of green clover in June I think is a mistake, says a writer in the Ohio Farmer. It is not the right thing to da My soil is a light. Baud very sensitive to manure, but the turning under of green clover does but little good. I And that in a short time after, turning under it com niences to heat, and . fermentation takes place, and through the process of fermentation all of the saccharine substance in the clover is turned into acid and thereby lost, and in some soils the acids would become a dam age. 1 finally concluded to try an ex periment of putting the green clover through the process of decomposition without fermentation to such an ex. tent as to destroy its saccharine pro perties. I hud a sis-acre field.' the soil of which was light sand, and in Its prim itive stato was covered with whortle berry brush and water. The native fertility bad been about exhausted, and there was but little to begin with. But I got it Into clover with a fair stand, but short. It would have cut about three-fourths of a ton per acre. I had been burning lime and had a quantity of slacked lime and ashes, which 1 put upon the clover at the rate of about seventy bushels per acre. The lime and ashes were about equal in proportion, and were spread from the wagon. I plowed it down, har rowed it, and rolled it down with a heavy roller. This was done in June. In August I cross-plowed it and could see very plainly where the clover, lime and ashes were. I gave it a thorough cultivation and sowed it to wheat about the first of September. The next harvest I had the biggest crop of straw 1 ever saw grow out of the groand. It was higher than an ordinary man's head and stood thick on the ground. The wheat went thirty-eight bushels per acre, and of a good quality. From previous ex perience I am satisfied that if I had plowed the clover, down without the lime and ashes, I would not have got more than ten or twelve bushels per acre; or if I had put the lime and ashes on without the clover. I would not have got any more. The clover. lime nnd ashes together were what produced the crop. Lime is a neutral izes It neutralizes the acids in the decomposition of the clover, and the soil absorbed all the fertilizing prop erties in the clover and made a plant food for the wheat. From the above facts and reasons. I think the plowing down of any green crop corn, oats or bu; k wheat is of but little use a a fertilizer unless lime is used in their decomposition. I have been experimenting in the way of mowing down the clover in June and covering it up with a heavy coat of straw as soon as the wheat is threshed, the success of which I will report soon. Bam tie Foot. Bumble foot in poultry is the same thing as a stone bruise on a boy's foot The fowl troubled with It has a swelling on the bottom of the foot which is very painful and finally break and suppurates freely. Very frequently it permanently cripples the a i icted fowl unless it is carefully treated. The probable cause of this disease is from a bruise received from jumping from some elevation and a prolific cause is having the perches too high. When the lameness that precedes the visible swelling shows itself the fowl should be watched and as soon as the swelling becomes soft it should be carefully opened wita a very sharp knife and the fowl con fined on a floor covered with soft litter until the lameness disappears. The lighter breeds are not subject to this disease. Ainerlcun-Orown Tea. Forty of fifty years ago an attempt was made to introduce the tea plant into this country. Some were im ported and planted in the upland regions of North and South Carolina. The trees or shrubs grew, and were found hardy, but the enterprise never paid, or rather cotton paid so much better that it occupied all the atten tion of th.3 planters. Now cotton is under a cloud, and these old tea plan tations are coming to the front again. They yitjid a much better, stronger tea than we can or do import from China Apparently the Chinese keep the best for themselves and send us only the poorest We hope to hear that this industry is growing until the time comes when this country will be independent of China and Japan for its tea supply. American Cultivator. My Experience lit ultr,y, If you will allow me space, 1 will give my experience in the poultry Una I am a lover of chicken and I think in my flock of sixty hens I have all colors, from snow white to jet black and all sizes. My hen house is 14x16 feet with strips "on'lffe5uT" side, which makes it perfectly tight and warm in winter. I have egg all winter. This is the way 1 manage: Hrst I see to the cleanliness of all surroundings by keeping all of tne nests and walls whitened and nests filled with fresh straw. I use straw because it is the best thing I have or) . fvr nna1, nn 11 mntr.lila and five in a row. I remove her first and make ner s fresh nest, then I put ber eggs in and let her go on at her will. I always et her where she goes to setting as any hen will set better if you do not try to move her. The first thing I do after she hatches is to remove her nest and burn it This I do at in tervals in the winter when I have no hens setting. I clean the floor twice a week of the droppings. After all is cleaned I throw a bucket of lacked lime on and sweep it around evenly with my broom. The next thing is their health. I watch the droppings every morning for signs of sickness, which is very easily detected by experienoe. The white part turns yellow in the first stage and if allowed to continue will soon be as green as grass. The first sign is when I begin and I seldom have any serious cases. My remedy is red pepper and salsoda. I put one pint of salsoda in two gallons of water and don't let them have any other to drink. I buy my red pepper at the grocer's by the pound. 1 soak all of my scraps of bread and other scraps from the table, chopped One, over night and thicken with corn meal, with four tablespoons of pepper to the gallon, and give it in the morning be fore I turn them out I have tried several remedies but this is the best one I know. It is splendid for little chickens, . a spoonful in their feed twice a week. I never keep my hens two years, as I think young hens lay the best; old hens accumulate too much fat to 'lay welL For winter layers early pullets are the best hatched the first of April I change my cockerels every spring. Have four with my sixty hens and my eggs hatch splendid. My chickens have free range. Journal of Agriculture. Vlieop for Hilly (.round. Wherever sheep are pastured they require some elevation of ground on which to feed and sleep. This is no doubt a relic of times when sheep were the prey of many wild animals, and sought elevated places that they might more easily discern their enemy at a distance. On hillsides also the grass Is sweeter ana richer than it is on wetter lowlands. On the latter, aside from the poorer quality of their pasture, sheep are liable to contraot diseases in their feet This often loses to the sheep owner more than he can gain from the abundant pasture on low. wet land. By keeping on ele vated places sheep drop their manure where it enriches what is naturally the poorest soil. Good mangers for hay and straw and boxes for grain. The farmer is farthest from market who has nothing to sell. - Well rotted and fined manure pro duces' the quickest results. In planning the crop, consider the market as well as the crop. Learn as much as you can and im prove on what you already know. One advantage in cutting the bed' ding is that the manure is easier to handle. Farming is one thing and farming so as to make it pay a fair per cent ot profit is another. Cross breeding is the mixing up of two well established breeds and is rarely successful It is poor economy to move to town to give the boys a chance, unless you want them to loaf. One advantage with a diversity of crops is that the farmer is more inde pendent of the season. Whenever you use a scrub sire you are grading down, depreciating the value of your own stock. One advantage with the creamery is that it puts the milk and butter business on a cash basis. For garden and orchard culture a gentle horse and one that goes well is almost indispensible in doing good work. Clov er is a natural restorative, hence it is a good plau to rotate in clover as frequently as possible. 1Mb is one the cheapest plans of building up. There is really no best time to sell unless it is when the stock is best ready to market; waiting for the best market is too much like speculating. Home Hints. Green tea will revive rusty black lace and render it as good as new. While cleaning up bedrooms the closet doors should be kept closed to keep the dust out. Tarnished gold embroidery may be cleansed with a brush dipped in burned and pulverized rock alum. Clean straw mattings and i rattan furniture with salt and water, chang ing the water often. Washed in this way they will not turn yellow. The durability and brightuess of oilcloth are increased by a coat of varnish semi-annually, or by rubbing over with kerosene once a month. Well dried, clean corn husks make a very good wholesome bed, the best bed net to wool or hair. But they are altogether too hard for pillows. Although china for table use cannot be mended, as yet there is no ce ment that will hold in hot water yet china for decoration can be nicely mended with a little chin foment A good quality of scrim with em broidered ferns scattered over it makes a pretty dressing table cover or scarf.

GEHERAL M'CLEMKD ATTACKED. A BUI to Psiuloa Him Withdraw Sprinter and Champ Clark Declare ' That the Recant Democratic De feat Wm l.rroly Da to Southern Opposition to 1 easlons for Soldiers. Washington, Jan. 14. The chief feature of Friday night's session of the house was the debate which grew out of the attempt of Mr. Springer (Dem., Ill), to pass a bill granting $100 a month to Major General John A. McClernand. Mr. Jones (Uem. Va.) insisted upon making the point of no quorum. Mr. Springer, in a heated speech, lectured those of hia Southern Democratic colleages who constantly assumed an attitude of hostility toward the pension of Union soldiers. He called attention to the fact that but thirteen Democrats had been returned to the next house from the North. He warned them that if their course was persisted in, none would be returned to the succeeding eo ngress. The discussion was prolonged for more than an hour and was marked by several sensational scenes, one of which was the hissing of Mr. Jonea when he said that the widow of Gen eral John A. Logan, who received a pension of $3,000 a year, was living in social luxury in this city and annually spent more than her pension money for flowers displayed by her at ber . social functions. Later on when ha proclaimed his pride in the Confeder ate cause that had gone down in de- ( feat, the Republicans in chorna . shouted: "We have no doubt of it," but in the galleries many of the spec tators applauded vigorously. . Mr. Springer was finally forced to withdraw the bill But even after the bill bad been withdrawn Mr. Champ Clark, Democrat of Missouri, got the floor, and in a characteristic speech scored Mr. Jones roundly as he said on behalf of his Democratic colleagues of the North. He began by saying the Democratic party pre sented a dissolving view, and would soon be lost to sight, though to mem ory dear. He attributed much of tha Democratic disaster last fall to tha t course of the Southern Democrats on the pension question, and charged tha defeat of at least five Northern Demo- :' crats to the speeches of Mr. Jonea, ''' He then paid a magnificent tribute to McClernand. After appealing to Mr. Jones to al low this meritorious bill to go through he turned to . him and said impress ively that the Democrats of the North were sick and tired of having their.... Southern party associates come to congress and stab their party in the back. "We are through with you," Mr. Clark concluded. NATIONAL DAIRY UNION. Members Listen to a Short Address by Congressmen Hatch. Washington, Jan. 14. At yester. day's meeting of the National Dairy union short addresses were made by Representatives Hatch of Missouri and Grout of Vermont, Assistant Secretary of Agriculture Dabney and others.

Interesting- Foots Kesardln Alaska Fisheries Presented. Washington, Jan. 14. Some Inter esting facts in regard to Alaskan seal fisheries were stated to the housa committee on territories by Governor Sheakly of Alaska The governor de clared the seals were practically ex tinct and will be entirely so within a short time. Although the govern ment authorized the killing of 60,000 last year by the fur company, they could find but 13,000 for the market He said no less than 30,000 pups had died because their mothers had been killed by poachers. Poaching la largely carried on, he said, notwith standing recent legislation. SMALL-POX CLOSES A TRACK. Aid From on Unexpected Source Helps Officers to Stop toeing-. Chicago, Jan. 14. Aid from an un expected source has -come to tha Indiana authorities, who have for months been racking their brains, aa to the best method of closing and keeping closed, the race track at Roby, Ind. An epidemic of small-pox has broken out, and there is a wild scramble among the touts, stablemen and jockeys to reach a more health ful locality. The track is closed at present but it is not likely that tha state authorities will allow it to re open, even if the management wishef to do so. ' Wrong Doing Alleged. Guthrie, Ok., Jan. 14.
