MB. ELLIS' POSITION.
Will the Beloit Gazette please inform
the Journal, to the best of its knowledge
and belief, the position of Mr. Ellis with
reference to silver at the present time.
also what ground he occupied in this
connection atthe'time of his nomina
tion? Smith Center Journal.
We will answer these question?,
although we are satisfied they are
not asked in good faith.
The Journal and most of the
other populists sheets in the Sixth
district, have startedout to misrep
resent the position of Mr. Ellis
upon silver may be expected to con
tinuein'that line until after telec
tion,andany thing said j byjj ;Mr. El
lis or by his friends in hisbehalf
will continuetobe misquoted, gar
bled and distorted. Such"are "re
form" methods. Fair and courte
ous treatment of an opposing candi
date is not to be expected.
Mr. Ellis is "earnestly and une
quivocally in favor of the coinage
of the American product of silver
at the present ratio of 16 to 1, and
he occupied that ground "at the
time of his nomination."
lie realizesthat the United States
has less than one-twentieth of the
people of the civilized world; that
no civilized nation is now engaged
in the free coinage ofsilver; that
the United States is not powerful
enough to manipulate, manage and
control the financial and industrial
affairs of the civilized nations of the
earth, but that the UnitecUStates is
great enough, strong enough and
brave enough to manage its own
affairs, develop its own industries,
give its own miners employment,
build up a western market for farm
ers' products, and put in beneficial
use the output of oar silver mines
which are capable of producing as
much silver as those of any other
country and at the same time re
taining in circulation the half bil
lion and more of gold now in use as
money in this country, and of util
izing hereafter the output of our
gold mines which are now produc
ing gold faster than those of any
other nation and Mr. Ellis occu
pied that ground "at the time of his
He agrees with all those who
have watched the course of the lead
ing Populists; who have read the
fiat money bills introduced by Pef
ftr, Jerry Simpson, John Davis and
others, including Baker "by re
quest;", who have noted that the
doctrine of Jerry Simpson's bill to
demonetize both gold and silver at a
stated period in the near future is
now being enunciated by Governor
Lewelling upon the stump in Kan
sas; who have heard populist speak
ers at nearly every populist meeting
denounce both gold and silver as
"relics of barbaric ages;" who have
witnessed an absolute concurrence
of opinion among leading populists
in favor of fiat money at all times
and under all circumstances; that
the people's party as an organ
ization (as led and controlled) is
opposed to silver as well as gold,
and if that party had the
power it would surely do away with
jts use as money, and give us pa
per "only that and nothing more;"
and who have therefore construed
the pretenses of populist leaders as
to silver as made merely for the pur
pose of catching votes and Mr. El
lis entertained that opinion of the
populist leaders "at the time of his
He is aware that in all civilized
countries the question of restoring
silver to the place it occupied as
money prior to its demonetization
by the nations of Europe is being
agitated by the men of broad learn
ing and high standing and influ
ence; that the German silver com
mission has just agreed upon a
unanimous report in favor of restor
ing silver by an international treat-;
and it concludes with the statement
that in restoring silver "such is the
condition of affairs that German v
will be permitted to reckon upon the
co-operation of all powerful states,
including England" (see this report,
translated and published in full in
the September, 1894, number of the
Review of Reviews); that while v.e
ought not to wait for international
action, still such action is sure to
come, and its early coming ought to
bs encouraged rather than retarded
by holding out to the selfish govern
ments of Europe a delusive prospect
that this nation will alone under
take to offer a premium upon the
silver of the world, when to do so
would be to drive every dollar of
our gold out of circulation immedi
ately, and out of this country ulti
mately; that as Americans we ought
to say to John Bull and his foreign
compeers, "We have silver enough
of our own, and we propose to coin
it at our ratio, without sustaining
any loss on the coins we now have,
and we shall keep "Our silver out of
this country; we shall not undertake
to furnish you a market for your
silver bullion, but will open our
mints at once, and thereby create
the best kind of a market for our
own; we will not permit you to
bring your silver over here, have it
coined at our mints, and then force
our government to take it for im
port duties; we don't need your
goods very badly any way, and can
never get rich by buying your com
modities, and if you bring them
here we shall not allow you to pay
the duties at less than fifty cents on
the dollar in depreciated silver; Ave
have a vat amount of gold in circu
lation as money, and we propose to
keep it and continue to add to it by
the product of our gold mines,
which are the best in the world;
when you want to negotiate with
for a full restoration of silver to its
proper place as a moneT metal in
the world we are ready to meet and
treat with you, but we shall not
wait one moment for you to act in
the matter; disabuse your minds at
once of the idea that we shall be
come silver monometalists, and thus
unable you to unload your silver on
us and get our "yaller money" in ex
change for it, for we propose to fos
ter aud utilize our gold as well as
our silver in short, Messrs. Bull &
Co., WE. ARE AMERICANS."
And Mr. Ellis occupied that ground
"at the time of his" nomination."
LETTEE KUMBEPv .TWO.
Ben Henderson Says His Charges
Were in a Very Mild Form.
Ben Henderson, chairman of the
late populist state convention, has
written another letter. He tells the
gentlemen who speaks ofjibel suits
to come on, he is ready for them.
He has also written to Chairman
Breideiithal as follows:
Before I wrote you on the 2Sth
inst., I had carefully considered the
past, the present and the future. I
had mentally wrestled with myself
in every conceivable form to obtain
my own consent to enter into the
present campaign and keep my lips
sealed as to the corruption of many
persons holding office under Gover
nor Lewelling's administration.
I could not stullify myself by en
tering the campaign tins year, con
cealing the corruption, dishonesty,
and I might add, crimes of members
of our own party.
From a political standpoint, I per
haps have made a mistake for the
time being, but, as has been said by
another, "I would rather be right
than be president of the United
States." In my letter to you I
know I ant right, if the principles
of reform advocated by the people's
party mean anything.
I have referred to individuals and
charges in my letter in a yery mild
form as compared with the state
ments and declarations made to me
of and concerning the gentlemen
mentioned in my letter, some of
whom I have known for years, and
we have been quite intimate and
confidential friends, but I could not
help taking tiie position I have
I imagine some will say of me
harsh and mean things, but that
matters but little to me, when com
pared with the great wrongs ami de
ceptions practiced by Governor Lew
elling's appointees upon the people
of our honored commonwealth.
I believe the defeat of Lew
elling and his corrupt gang would
be a wonderful advantage to the
people's party in Kansas. I believe
that principles are paramount to the
interests of men. In years to come
I feel that the people of this com
monwealth who believe in and are
loyal to the real principles of reform
will honor me m my position,
though I may now be not only
damned, be persecuted by the clique
now in the ' saddle. 1 am ready.
God Almightv hates a coward, and so
do I. As ever, your friend,
Bes S. Henderson,
The following is an extract from
a report of the recent populist stafe
convention of Colorado, which re
nominated Governor Waite. It is
not taken from a venal republican
paper, but is from the Rocky Moun
tain News, the only large populist
daily in the United States. And, it
must hi remembered that this Colo
rado convention had the restnnning
influence of over a hundred women
All the annals of log-rolling, "oil-
room" persuasion and lobbying have
been surpassed in the convention
just passed at Pueblo. Never before
has the Governor ot the state ot Col
orado lobbied openly and persistent
ly, to secure his own renomination.
Never before have petty office hold
ers been so persistent in their efforts;
never before was the tradition that
the office should seek the man so en
tirely relegated to things dead and
forgotten. The lobbying was going
on night and da-, literally "up stairs
and down stairs and in mj lady's
chamber." The rodoubtable aspir
ant to the bench, Judge Pratt, had
a cot in the gubernatorial bed room,
and there the Speer-Toy-Moakler-Hegwee-Behymer
faction held a
continual caucus aided by the fe
male portion of their respective
families. The contest
lay between those who are populists
from principle and those who are
populists tor revenue onlv. sometimes
called "Bread and Butter Populists."
Would the former or latter delega
tion win? This was the question
among the members of the delega
tion those members, that is, who
were not admitted to the sacred pri
vacy (?) of the governor's bed
The populist party is rapidly
nearing a state of dissolution. In
Oregon they are turned down under
an avalanche of votes. In Colorado
the party is split in two and the
leaders of the Waite and Patterson
factions are vigorously slashing the
air, -with the hope of hitting a pop
head when they hit anything. In
Kansas it is estimated that one
third of the pop vote of two years
ago will bolt Lewelling, and a large
share of the balance will go to the
republicans. Two years from now
the populist party will be classed
with the old greenback party
sacred only in memory. Kearney

LIFE SAVED BY
AYER'S CHERRY PECTORAL
"Seven year3 ago, my wife had a JJ
severe attack of lung trouble which os
the physicians pronounced consumption. Os
The cough was extremely distressing, j
especially at night, and was frequently of
attended with the spitting of blood. 3
The doctors being unable to help her, l
I induced her to try Ayer's Cherry Pec- oi
toral, and was surprised at the great o
relief it gave. Before using one whole c5

That this j
medicine saved my wife's life, I have not
