Tho National Exocutlvo Com mittee's Address. la an AliU Manner It Oiilllnr. the Orowth Tullry, Iurm anil Future of tllo Fnrl.r Curtnln or Bucurss If the I'eople Have the Cuurage, Tho national oxocutlvo committee of tho people's parly has issued an address to tho people of tho United States out lining Iho growth, policy, purpose and futuro of tho party. Tho address was drartcd by Ignatius Donnelly, and is as follows: Tho national committee of the peo ple's parly of tho United States deem it proH.'r to lay before their constituents at this timo somo statement of the re sults of tho conference held by them Ih vurious representatives of organ ized industry in this oily during the past few days. Thoso rosulta have is-en In every respect most satisfactory. There is no longer any doubt that can didates for president and vice president will bo In the held before JUiiU I, I8'.i nominated by tho Hplo's party. It soeois to us very plain that the time has come when no influence of tho old po litical organizations, and no power of aggregated capital can prevent tho hearty and unanimous coming together and co-operation of all tho lalxir forces of the United Slates, whether employed in tho workshop, or in the mine, w on the farm. This is an imHrlant event in tho history of the nation and of civi lized man there has lioen no precedent for it In any of the past ages. The pro ducing classes have hitherto remained impoverished in the midst of the very plenty which they created those who toiled not havo possessed the wealth of the world while thoso who toiled have too often Buffered for tho necessities of life Hut tho advance of civilization and universal education has Hooded the minds of the multitude with an ocean of light, and taught them the supremo ne cessity for co-ooration in defense of tho inborn rignts of humanity. The producing classes of tho United States are tho nation all others simply live by tho toil imiKsed on tho industry of tho workers. We make no war on the non. producers, as such; soin i of them render the people a full euuivolent of services for all they receive: others are robbers' and plunderers who through tho imperfection of our laws, si rip toil of its possessions and do not go to tho penitentiary. Tho peoplo have b.dield with growing alarm the continual advance of condi tions which every day have carried us farther and farther away from the prin ciples and traditions of tho founders of the republic, und nearer and nearer to an abyss in which wo cm separation of a crushing the dreadful alternative of revolution and anarchy. It is lor the purpuso of saving freo institutions, by the H-aoeful instrumentalities of education audlhi ballot, that tho people's party of the United Slaii-s has been organized. No honest man can fail to acknowledge the overwhelming necessity which exists for such a movement. Wo havo seen tho shadow of plutoc racy spreading steadily over our land. Wo havo seen the railroad corporations grow from humble beginnings, the servitors of the people, into a vast and powerful conspiracy which, for the pro tection of its bogus capililizatiou, con Irolcs our elections, corrupts our legis latures, debauches our juries, and ca.-.ts the ttlimo of rottenness over the very judges of our courts, the last resort of justice on earth. Wo havo seen the banking associations, from being at lirst mere conveniences for the accom modation of the people, swell into a lordly national confederation, holding all business in its grip, able to make or wreck as their own interests may dic tate, the prosperity of all classes, while not a dollar of currency is able to lind find its way to the people from tho gov ernment that does not represent a dol lar of debt to the money-mautpulatiiiu' class We have seen tho dally news taer press, insieal of being as it should be in this nineteenth century and lu this freo A merlon the cham pion and defender of popular rights against all comers coerced by its busi ness necessities into Ivcoming tho mere Instrument to bind tho shackles of serfdom on tho limbs of a free people; to confuse their minds by sophistries; to till their ears with falsehood; to up hold everything that is destructive to public good, and to crush everything that would help tho p-toplo. Asa striking illustration of tho col -lossal lios with w hich tho people were misled, we would Minl to the vote of the people's parly this year in tho slate of Kansas. Nine-tenths of the popula tion of this country, in consequence of the gross misrepresentations of the press, believe that the (NHiple's party vote of Kansas in I SHI fell off very largely from their vote in 1'.HI; while the ollicial publication of the vote taken this year shows that although the tolai vqte of all parties in Kansas was aloiul 30,000 less than it was a year ago, the ieopie'a party vote was actually in creased alwut II) percent, over the vote of lS'Jo, or 47 per cent of the entire vote. Tho republican majority in South Dakota wh reduced from 10,inni in lsim to2,7Nllu 1801, while in Nebraska the people's party came within 3,otKl of de feating the combined jMwcr of both old parties and elected eleven district judges It is true that in somo of the judicial districts of Kansas the jteople's candidates were defeated, but it was was only by an unholy union of the democratic and republican parlies against them. The hereditary enemies of a half century gave nn their sham battle, and under tho inspiration of the money power rushed into eacn other's arms and in one fand embrace resolved to forget protection, reciprocity, the silver qunstion and everything else, if they could only prevent tho oppressed people of Kansas from obtaining the governmental reforms which they sought. In this act they conclusively demon strated that they are the two Dromios of plutocracy .ind that only the differ ence of a feather distinguishes them from one another. The people perceive that there is room in this country for only two ixilitical parties a (utrty which represents tho people and a parly which represents the plunderers of the people. Before the close of the elec tion of lWli we oxpox-t to see the two old parties, with all their banners and war cries, marching and hurrying to gether in defense of the iniquities which have covered the land with mortgages and driven the republic lo the verge of destruction. Already the asperities of t he pv-t have ceased be tween them, and their campaigns have become the sweet inteichange of court esies between lovers ralhor than the fierce onslaught of warriors contending for oposite principles. Tho tender amenities of this courtship will be fol lowed by the hot embrace of conjugal love; the winner will le barren of pins terity, for it will mean the subjugation of liberty and the domination of mam mon: and. as God docs not intend that the republic shall perish, these influ ence cannot endure or prevail. And so, under these auspicious cir- ouinstanees, cheered by ail abiding faith in our triumph IS'.M" at ths lutllol box, fighting for the homos of a freo people, for linerty, union, industry and justice, we confidently appeal to every honest man in the United States to come forward and help us bury this monster plutocracy never to rise again to trouble the children of liberty. Do not wait to be summoned to aullon. This fight Is every man's fight; it is a light lor tho rooftreo and ttio babe in the cradle; it is a light to determine whether our prosperity shall bu reduc ed to old-world conditions or shall ad vance along tho line of the Declaration of Independence and the constitution, to greater prosperity and Higher civiliza tion. Wherever this appeal reaches any man let him call his friends and neigh bors together at once and organize a IH'oplo's party club and report to our secretary, Mr. Itoborl Schilling ot .Mil waukee. Iet the watch word be: "Or ganize to savo tho republic!" Wo have tho numbers the p;0lo on our side. All we nn -d is courago and resolution. 11. K, Taphknwk, Chairman. ' liOHKHT Sfllll.MNd, Secretary.

Senator Plumb says there cannot h i threo sides to a question. That is righU On the finance, land aud transportation questions there are two sides. The p-oplo are arraying themselves on one side, while republican and democratic tools of the money inner are trying to rally tho partisan-'Jlnnle I to the sup ort of plutocracy. Where do you stand in this contest, brother Oborlin Times. The republicans hold that the tariff is not a tax, and then they turn around and "point with pride" to the free list and boast that there are moif articles on the free list than ever before. If the mcasley foreigners pay tho tax, as republican claim, why did the repub lican parly put anything on the freo list' Why not let iho foreigners pay nil our taxes' Free Trailer.

Tfee Office of the Well Known Wall Street Operator and Heilroad Magnate the Been of a Frightful : ploelon. NEW York, Doc.;m. Russel Sage, tho millionaire broker, oscajsid death by a miracle to-day. His office and the en tire Kmplre building, in which tho of fice was altuated. was shaken to Its very foundation by tho explosion of a dyna mite bomb, hurled by a crank, who made a demand upon Mr, Sage for the Immediate payment of 11,2,10.000, the ultimatum being, in caso of refusal, tho death of the millionaire, the crank himself, and thos employed In the otlice. Nover in the history of tho me tropolis is it probable that an event oc curred that for a time caused more ex citement in Wall street and lower Broadway. Fully 50.0H people were drawn to the scene of tho explosion, and tor an nour tne police wero powerless to bring order out of chaos. The otliees of Bussell Sage wero on the second floor of the building at HO. 71 and 73 Broadway, situated on the southwest corner of Hector street, over looking Trinity churchyard and within a stone's throw from Wall street. It was just 12:22 when theexplosion came, with a force that was absolutely start ling, completely wrecking the second floor of the building, throwing pedes trians on the street to the ground, and startling people forblocksaround. Thoso wno were close at hand saw a man blown through one of the windows of Sage's office into Hector street. A few minutes later Sage b'mself. with the blood streaming from his face and hands, waa carried out into the street and taken to a drug: store on Broadway. Within ten minutes after the explosion Dr. Munn. physician to Jay Gould, was at the side -of Mr. Sage and personally attended his injuries, which proved to be not of a serious nature. The hair and eyebrows of the millionaire were burnt and his face and hands wore cut by small parti cles of glass and plaster. Mr. Sage, though suIToring from tho shock, made the following statement while his wound was being dressed: A man, who gave his name a II. 1). Wilson, came into my olliee. I had never seen him before.
