What a Pennsylvania Editor Thinks
of Marion Butler.
“Xtrsm wo congratulate the Peoples
party upon being rid of this small,
1,,,,. ar- i troublesome element of dis
e I .r.,i zers .--Marion Butler's Caucas
ian.'’ SCSI
, & i e controversy which has tak
e, . g( among those who have in the
1 ® a deemed the leaders of the
I -s party, we have avoided taking
bi; part. While we were most firmly
c osed to any fusion cr co-operation
w th either the Republican or Damo
. atic parties, except it could be ac
complished under our own name, prin
e’p es and organization, we still hoped
that time and a sense of justice would
in the end Leal all differences which
seem- d to threaten the existence and
usefulness of the party. Wo had hop
ed that the me-.tmg of the national
committee and organization committee
at Omaha two weeks ago would estab
lish a better feeling between all ele
ments, but in this hope we were again
doomed to meet disappointment, and
the difference seems wider than ever.
The words which we quote above
from the editorial columns of the Cau
casian, National Chairman Butler’s pa
per, are unworthy any man occupying
the position he docs. The men that he
congratulates the People’s party upon
being rid cf, are they who have built
the party up from its very foundation,
to a position of strength and principle.
For one moment consider who compose
tVia “element ’ which Chairman Butler
denounces, and it will be seen that
they have been the very life and sinew
of the party since its birth. To the
grand work of Ignatius Donnelly and
his paper, The Representative, more
than to any other source can be cred
ited the numbers and influence of the
Peoples party in Minnesota and that
region. To L. D. Raynolds and his
Chicago Express, the Peoples party are
indebted for years cf labor and sacri
fice, for its promotion and life. Whar
ton Barker and his paper, the Ameri
can, are toil - ng in the very front ranks
of true Populism and reform. Jo A.
Parker and his paper, the Free Repub
lic, are familiar names among all the
followers of the Peoples party cause in
every section of the country, and in
Kentucky he has been its hero in all
its battles —never wavering and never
weakening. To whom if not to gallant
Tom Watson and his Peoples Party
Paper, is the Peoples party in Georgia
and the south indebted for education
and support in its days of weakness
and trial. Mr. Paul Dixcn and his
Missouri World have led the Populists
of Missouri in many a hard-fought bat
tle, and are carrying the Peoples party
flag today in the thickest of the fight
against the legions of plutocracy and
greed. XV. S. M .*./au and his “Buzz
hav f -r ye;.ra a 1 are now lend
ing with brfiiant z-al the Populist
lines in Arkansas. ’LI ton Park and
h.b devo'.-d following*of Texas Popu
lists ; we could couti Ine this list to
covet pages. And thet i, whom
Chairntfcja Butler con y ikuatea what
he terms tne Peoples Blr’y in being
“rid of.” These men /who ’have for
years borne the heat and burden of the
fight, for all the reforms for which the
party stands pledged. These men,
who have given the labor and earnings
of a lifetime to the upbuilding of the
people’s cause, and without whose con
sistent and persistent labors there,
would have been no Peoples party, are
denounced us “noisy disorganizers” by
a man who is fattening upon a salary
of 85,000 a year, for which he is indebt
ed to the It- publican party. Denounced
for no other reason except that they
refused at Omaha two weeks ago to
surrender the Peoples party into the
handb of Chairman Butler and his 20
associate traffickers in official plunder.
The words of Mr. Butler arc an insult
to every one of these men, all of whom
are faithful toilers in the new almost
hopeless struggle for human rights.
As we have stated, it had not been cur
intention to take part in this contro
versy, trusting to the healing balm of
tin.e to effect a cure, but now believe
the words of Chairman Butler call for
severest rebuke.—Sledge Hummer,

Editor Peoples Party Paper:
I have read with much pleasure and
profit the platform of our party in the
great state of Georgia.
The second p'.ank in your platform,
will elect every Populist candidate in
your state, if the majority of the voters
in your state are Christians.
Every negro preacher and every ne
gro Christian and every father and
mother in Georgia should go to work
and help destroy the wicked saloon
power. Whiskey and other intoxicat
ing drinks are now doing the negroes
more harm tnan slavery every did.
The man who prays the Lord’s prayer:
‘Thy kingdom come. Thy will be
done in earth, as it is in Heaven,” and
votes for a party who is too cowardly
to be outspoken on the saloon question
is a consummate hypocrite. A man who
is untrue to his God, is false in every
thing else.

for the last four years I have been a
member of our slate executive commit

The Liquor Trafflck.
To the Editor Evening Journal:
In November, 1885, the people of Ful
ton county, by popular vote, under the
local option law, adopted prohibition.
While prohibition was in force the
drinking of liquor to excess was very
greatly reduced. The physical and
mental suffering and distress which it
brings, the disturbances, vice and
crime resulting from its sale and use,
were very largely decreased ; the homes
of a great number of people who are
poor or labor for a living were much
better paid, and a greater number than
ever before in a similar period purchas
ed homes and improved their condi
The bettering of the condition of the
people, and the promotion of their hap
piness was not confined to the poor and
those who labor ; but many in better
circumstances, who, before prohibition,
patronized barrooms too freely, by the
in fluence of prohibition had their
drinking habits improved, both by mak
ing it niore difficult to obtain liquor—
especially by the drink, and the disin
clination of most men to drink to ex
cess at home.
But prohibition in this county has
been set aside for the present.
The most prominent and operative
cause of this was the belief or feeling
by many persons, having no self-inter
est at stake, that liquors for legitimate
purposes—for medicinal and family use
and cases of necessity—ought to be
within their reach. I believe it alto
gether probable that if some measure*
wisely guarded, by which liquors for
such purposes could have been obtain
ed, had been incorporated into the lo
cal option law, the result of the last
election would have been different.
Since that election the amount of
drunkenness, disorderly conduct and
crime, resulting from drinking, has
been far greater than was ever before
known in this county in so short a pe
A large majority of the people of this
county, whether prohibitionists or not,
freely acknowledge the great evils re
sulting from the improper sale and use
of liquors ; they differ only as to the
measures to prevent these evils.
One blames the man who drinks too
much, and favors punishing him for
his weakness and folly.
Another blames the dispenser of
liquors, who, knowing the drunkard’s
weakness, his morbid, uncontrolable
appetite, and thirst for liquor, as
as the suffering it brings on others,
still sells to him : and proposes to pro
hibit the sale altogether, thus remov
ing the temptation and the opportunity
to use liquors improperly.
Others favor reducing to a mininum
the number of places where liquors are
sold; confining the trade to a small
territory; imposing a high license or
tax on the trade, etc.
All admit the evils, and are willing
to do whatever they think best calcu
lated to prevent them, they differ only
as to methods.
Under such circumstances, cannot the
patriotic men Os all sides, who have no
selfish or personal interests at stake,
come together and devise some proper
measure that will accomplish the end ?
Some law that good men will indorse,
by which liquors will be in easy reach
of all cases of necessity, and their abuse
prevented ? Will not patriotic men
lay aside their prejudices, preferences
and antagonisms, and make an earnest
effort to unite on some such measure ?
I very respectfully suggest a measure
that will take entire control of the
trade in liquors by the county authori
ties—our commissioners of roads and
reuenue —that will entirely prohibit
the sale of any liquors for any purpose,
by any person for individual profit or
gain, or on private account; but place
the handling or furnishing of it in the
hands of the public authorities, to be
dispensed for legitimate use to any
person needing it, under rules to be
prescribed by law, or by the orders of
such public authority, on public ac
count; with a guaranty that all liquors
so furnished shall be of good and
wholesome quality and at a price that
will cover cost and expenses and no
I believe public opinion would readi
ly centralize on such a measure.
I am aware that there is a constitu
tional difficulty in the way of a county
thus taking the charge suggested, or
of establishing a dispensary under such
circumstances; but the city of Atlanta
has that power ; and the city authori
ties by agreement with the county com
missioners could make it practically a
county measure; and if such a measure
is deemed proper, it would pay to
amend the constitution giving the
county commissioners this power. The
legislation necessary to put such a
measure in force in any county in Geor
gia could readily be had if public opin
ion would indicate a desire for it. It
might be so framed as to have the local
option feature; to be adopted and put
in force in any county by vote of the
people, through the ordinary, grand
jury, county commissioners or superior
It seems to me that the propriety of
giving this important subject is worth
The great evil of the trade in and use
of liquors is the barroom. There
should be no place where men could
buy liquor and drink it there. Men
very seldom get drunk at home.

Facts to Scatter Among the Voters of
Your District.
The State Executive Committee of
the Peoples Party has had printed a
large lot of leaflets to be scattered by
zealous workers among doubtful voters
during the present campaign.
They are designated as Campaign
Leaflets Noe. 1,2, 3, 4 and 5. These
will ba sent postage paid to any ad
dress 500 for 25 cents. If preferred
100 of each number will be sent or all
500 of one kind. Remit to

Atlanta, Ga.
Taxation of the state having under Demo
cratic administration, increased more than 100
percent since the Republican administration
of R. B. Bullock, notwithstanding the taxable
property of the state has doubledin value since
1879: we pledge ourselves, if placed in power, to
reduce tlie nresent high rate of taxation with
out a reduction in the pensions or common
school funds.
A vote for Hogan and the People’s
Party ticket means a vote for lower
taxes ? The record of Democracy since
1879 has shown a constant increase of
taxes. In 1883, 2% mills were sufficient.
In 1897, 5X mills were required. Do
you approve this doubling tax process ?
Where will it lead to in another 15
years ? Do you wish to keep in the
same set of officers whose salaries con
stantly grow larger as taxes double up,
while cotton continues to drop as it
has from 11 cents in 1883 to 6% cents
in 1897 ?
What are you going to do ? Vote
the same old ring back in power and
continue the doubling or vote for
Hogan and the People’s Party and a
change ?
People’s Party State Platform —
Giving in full the State platform as
adopted at the March convention.
How to Close the Saloons. —There
are thousands of good men in Georgia
who favor the abolition of the bar
rooms, and yet refuse to abandon the
political party which fosters and en
courages them, and vote with the party
pledged to their extermination. They
take the position that the liquor ques
tion should be settled at a special elec
tion, called for that purpose, when the
minds of voters will not be diverted
from the real issue by party politics or
by the personality of candidates.
Grant, for the sake of argument, that
they are correct in theory, their posi
tion is strict untenable.
The only way this question can be
submitted to the people at the ballot
box is by a referendum. This can only
be done by an amendment to the con
stitution. Such an amendment can
only be submitted to the people by an
act of the legislature. Hence it follows
that the only way to get the liquor
questiop submitted to the- people is Go
elect a legislature pledged to the Ini
tiative and Referendum.
The People’s Party is pledged, if
placed in power, to so amend the con
stitution that all important legislation
shall be submitted to the people for
their ratification.
It the Prohibition Democrats of Geor
gia are sincere in their demands for the
anti-barroom bill, they will lend their
influence and votes to elect a Populist
legislature which will submit this and
all other important issues to the peo
ple for their final determination at the
ballot box. Are they in earnest ? Or
do they think more of party than they
do of “God and home and native land.”
Hard Nuts to Crack —Why are
there fully 50,000 Georgians who have
sold out and gone west ?
Why is it so many farms are being
abandoned and farmer boys going to
town or to another state ?
Why is it so many farms are for sale
and thousands of acres can be bought
for half the price they brought 20 years
Why is it, in Georgia that mills
tax on a total valuation of 300 millions
paid all expenses in 1883 and in 1897 it
took double the tax or 5>4 mills on 400
millions, an increase of one-third in
total valuation ?
Why were the taxes doubled when
cotton sold for 11 cents in 1883 and
Georgia’s crop of 759,000 bales brought
into the state, 35 million dollars
whereas in 1897, the crop of over one
million bales sold at 6% cents brought
in only 30 millions ?
Why is it all officials, state, county
and city get the same or higher sala
ries and fees in 1897 as in 1883, although
the price of cotton has dropped fully
one half while the cost of production is
as great as in 1882 ?
Why is it that the courts are growing
larger and larger, new judges, new
bailiffs and scores cf subordinate offi
cials being added every year ?
Why is it, the cities are growing
richer and the country growing poorer,
the money lenders falter and the work
ingmen thinner, the bankers more pros
perous and the farmers further in debt?
Moral—The same political “ring”
has been in power in Georgia for 25
years. Since 1883 the taxes have been
doubled although cotton has fallen
half in price. On every side it has put
in new officials on fees and salaries and
every manner of extravagance to use
the tax money—your money made by
hard knocks. Where will your farm
be in another 15 years at the same rate
of doubling ? Has not this same “ring”
promised election after election to re
duce the tuxes ? Have they ever did it?
You can help change this. A vote
for the People’s Party ticket whereby
men will be sent to the legislature
pledged to a reduction iu the tuxes
will do the work. Dare you try a
change before your laud is gone for
tuxes ?
Shall tub Pkuilk Bulk.—A Dem-
ocracy or Republic is a country gov
erned by Sovereigns, (the people).
A Representative government is one
where the people delegate their power
to representatives. Hence it is not a
True Democracy.
In a representative government, the
power given to delegates cannot be re
called. They can pass laws to govern
the sovereigns (the people) of which a
majority or even all the people do not
approve but there is no method by
which said laws can be repealed except
through new delegates who in turx
may pass equally obnoxious laws or
repeal good laws contrary to public
demand. Hence the agent baa greater
power than the principal. The agent
cannot be made amenable for his acts
but the principal (the electors) are
compelled to obey the commands of
the agents (the delegates).
A Pure Democracy is one where the
acts of the delegates are subject to re
vision by the electors —where the prin
cipal may ratify or reject the action of
the agent (the delegate); where the
principal (the electors) may by peti
tion secure the passage of new laws or
the repeal of old ones; where laws
passed by the agents (the delegates)
may become operative unless by peti
tion the electors demand the same be
referred to a vote by which the electors
shall ratify or reject said laws.
In A Pure Democracy, the people
rule —not their agents; the people are
sovereigns—not the delegates; parties
have no power except to assist the elec
tors in selecting good laws or reacting
bad laws; party “bosses” cannot exer
cise power because the electors are
freed from party misrule and are sov
The People’s Party is pledged to pass
a bill giving the electors of Georgia
the right to amend the constitution so
as to put into effect at once, a Pure
Democracy, in which the people shall
rule, not the politicians.
Are you in favor of such a change ?

Invited in--Kicked Out.
A mass meeting of the Democrats cf
Hancock county invited the Populists
to participate in the Democratic pri
maries of that county for state and
county offices. The Populists accepted
the invitation and voted for the best
men in sight and a lot of the old Demo
cratic bosses and heelers who were
candidates were defeated. Seeing that
the Populists of the county would not
work under the lash as their Demo
cratic brethren were doing, the bosses
had a meeting of their executive com
mittee called and “resolved” that only
“known Democrats” should hereafter
vote in the Democratic primaries. That
is a pretty clever way to treat gentle
men —invite them to your house and
then kick them out because they have
op’niontf of their own, and dace to ex
press them. And the Populists in
every county in the state will have the
same treatment meted out to them
■when they offer to act with tne Demo
crats. The Democratic bosses only
want harmony when they can get all
the hominy.—Messenger.
The Only Opposers.
For several months I have been ap
pearing before all kind of organizations
seeking to arouse them to active inter
est in direct legislation. My audiences
have comprised some of the most intel
ligent reasoners and skillful debaters —
some cf the most radical and some of
the most conservative thinkers. In all
these meetings free discussion has been
allowed. It may interest your readers
to know that the only persons that I
have so far discovered as opposed to
direct legislation are the anarchists
(who believe in no law) and A. A. Ste
vens, vice-chairman of the Prohibition
national committee. Some of the an
archists finally came to our position on
the theory that, as no law is good law,
that anything which reduces number
of laws enacted is in the direction of
good—i. e., direct legislation—“scares
off” the offering of laws clearly in fa
vor of some private interest. Mr. Ste
vens, however, up to last account, re
fuses to be converted. He is credited
with saying that he did not think the
people could be trusted, that only the
few were educated to understand pub
lic questions and they should govern.
Your readers will readily see that the
wolf being the best judge of mutton is
clearly best fitted to watch over the
sheen. Mr. Stevens is consistent, how
ever, for when the majority of his fel
low citizens of Tyrone thought they
were able to have a water works of
their own, Mr. Stevens, with the aid of
the court, had the will of the people as
expressed at the ballot box set aside
rather than see the poor ruin them
selves (or the private water company).
lam glad to say, however, that we
have found many active Prohibitionists
in this state, Mayor Mausel, Dr. Swal
low, Elijah Kent Kane and others, in
hearty favor of direct legislation.
My work teaches me that you are
perfectly safe in insisting that the man
who opposes direct legislation either
does not believe the people should rule
or he has some selfish interest to serve.

Many preparations intended to beautify the complexion have failed, since they do not produce a )
tonic effect on tho skin. Because the Misses Bell’s Complexion Tonic has such an effect, it
succeeds where all mere cosmetics invariably fail. This great remedy, discovered by the Misses
Bell, tho eminent complexion specialists, of No. 78 Fifth Avenue. New York City, carries off all >
impurities, which tho blood forces to the surface of the body. It is exhilarating and vitalizing
wherever applied. Freckles, pimples, biackueuds, moth patches, wrinkles, liver spots, roughness,
oiliness and eruptions disappear, and the ekin bo- ’
comes soft and rosy as a baby's.
pA Tho Misses Bell will this month give to all who ;
call at their parlors, a free trial bottle of their Com- ,
~ J’lexion Tonic. Those who live ut a distance may '
