KANSAS AGITATOR: GARNETT, KANSAS. JULY 1&. 1894.
HELLISH'! READ AND REFLECT, YE "FREEMEN V WORKMKN1 TO EF. STARVKIl INTO SUBMISSION", j 2 Chicago, July 11.- The end ofj t lit- Pullman strike is in sight. Driven by hunger to accept the re- j dueed wages against which they re- j belled two months ago, employe,' of the big car works are on the point of surrendering. Hundreds' f families have been expecting the constable for days. Eviction from ( the company's houses is sure to come soon unless the strikers go to; work Scores ot then are too poor -to move. Many families have used j up every dollar of their earnings; and it is' now work or beg with; them. There lias never been :i. doubt in the minds of officials that ! when this point was reached the; strike would be over and the shops' will soon be opened. K. C. Star. Gold Four Dollars A Ton. j Though it is u fact that the Unit- j ed Stales can never liquidate (in; gold) its bonded indebtendess to; British bond holders to say nolh-; ing of paying the interest on these I obligations, which. now troubles the j secretary of the treasury while gold j remains scarce as at present wej have discovered the process by j which the government may purchase , the st nil" at about six dollars peri ton, and settle up with the world j on the basis of its present valuation, j This is the age of discovery and in J vention, and apprehending the fact j that the fools in congress through thirty years of congressional jug-1 glory have placed the United j States where the repudiation of the' public debt is the only possible means of our recovery from bondage, ' we have concluded to suggest to the j government the honorable way out. It would be dishonorable for so hon orable a body of rogues as compris-j es the law-making aggregation at j Washington to even hint at reDiidi ation ; it would not be violating our j pledge, however, to settle the gov-j crnment's bonded indebtedness with gold, compelling the bondholders' to receive it at the rate which the! bond-holders themselves contracted.' We will Bell, under certain provis ions, enough gold, at the rate of six dollars per ton, to the United States to pay its obligations. Its production is not much of a secret, though just at present we do not in tend to cause too much flurry in Lombard and Wall streets by mak ing the knowledge of its creation too conspicuous. There is no aluminum in clay, but there is a metallic combination, al chemical in principle, through which : K , ' l W.-'ii . ,; -m ' ,i (5. m " sX ; - I'.- - - r..-. If you would know all about Hog Pullman's plans, read this red-hot book. It is certainly an eye-opener. Price, 50 cents. Order through the Agitator. the alum in clay is converted to the cheap metallic substance called alu-J minum: The same principle applied j to the earth where gold is found, modified by a peculiar formation of j the galvanic battery, will transform the earth to a better quality of gold than is now taken out of the mines. With the proper facilities, and on a large scale, the gold can be easily produced for three or four dollars per ton. We hope soon to give our attention to the formation of a com pany for the manufacture, on a large scale, of the metallic bullion so highly prized by the bond-holders, and give them plenty of it. The same principle applies also to silver. We have also discovered a method j of combining metallic uubstances, by which iron and steel may cheap ly be made indestructible through oxidation, thus precluding the ne cessity of paint. Gjld pavement for streets will be the cheapest and most durable thing possible for a material Jerusalem, under these cir-; cumstances.
