3 VICTORY fOU THE FKOrLK. Tho dawn f a brighter day for the ag ricultunil ami Industrial c!a:im'nof Amor lcn in breaking. The clouda of preju dice, that "monster of hideous min," which, like the nightmare, robn of sleep and terrifies the ignorant and Buperatl- tioufl, are dlwpernlng. Learning acquired from the profcsHorn la the Hchool of prejudice in dangerous to the Lent inter ests of our country; the confidence, how ever, In these profeHKors, pollticlann, Is Bhaken; the broad banin of charity, "equal rights to all and special privileges to none," will not accommodate this robber of peace and happiness, thin tyrant, that oonllBcated the property of the people through legmlatlvo trickery and reduced the people to filaveH by "capital control of labor by controlling wanes." Pandering to the broken down aris tocracy of the south, the shoddy aris tocracy of the euHt in waning. Damning "Yanks," "Itebs." and "Wlldweeters" la not a paying biifllncHS any longer, and only proves the weak, narrow, mossy mind of tho damncr. Prejudice will no longer bo tho politician's strongest forte and most powerful force to carry through corrupt legislation to enrich himself and his secret employers, the money sharks, at the cxpontio of the great middle Classen. Party prejudice, the great blindfold, rob bing superstition, has been used to the Intercut of the clasaos and against the Interest of the masflos. Every effort of the old political party bosses to stir up sectional strife, hatred and animosity this year was emiled at. The people aro doing their own thinking. The "bloody uhlrt" had not enough starch In It to dl vide the people. The people of the north and of tho south have patriotically and magnanimously turned their backs to the past and have clasped hands in friend ship, and aro moving forward Bhoulder to Bhoulder as a unit In the great Indus trial revolution. The Lexington of this Impending rev olution was fought on Kansas soil No vember 1. Tho Kansas "Hayseed" met tho enemy and captured him. Tho In convenient multitude laid live of the Congressmen low, and declined to bosk and bathe in the blessedness and bliss of of the "Moonlight," and consigned to darkness and oblivion the IJenedlct Ar nold of Kansas. The dim lllckerlng lights burning In tho school houses on the prairies of debt-burdened, mortgage blanketed Kansas did the work the lights are Atlll burning, but stronger and steadier; the "old guards" are on duty though defeated in a dozen battles with the money power, encouraged, however by scores of minor victories, these bouIs burning with patriotism rise above the tempest of battle and seethe "impending crisis" of '92. "The old guard dies, but never surrenders." With victory perched upon their banner, marching upon a po litical platform "as broad In Its scope as are the Interests and demands of uni versal humanity," representing straight Jacksonlan democracy and Abe Lincoln republicanism, "a protest of the masses against the classes," a demand for more money and less tax; true to their cause they aro ready to ride Into the murderous artillery and musketry fire of the min ions of American and English plutoc racy. The people are not asking alms, but demanding justice. They want an equal representation In the legislature; fewer bankers, corporation attorneys, etc., to to make laws; fair remuneration for their labor; less protection on labor saving machinery; no speculation in labor and its products; sufficient circulating me dium In the country to do the busineen of the country on a cash basis; no racro of the debt nyrtem that aggrandizes the creditor at the expense of the debtor; re duced rates on the tnniportat!on of their products on the great public highways, railroads falBcly labeled "private corpora tions;" coinage of silver free and unlim Ited; their faith In the government cut up In $1, fc!, $5, etc., pieces and clrcubtt ed among them, greenbacks Instead of the present accursed interest bearing bond system; the railroad and financial syetcms modified so that they will be come benlflcent agents of commerce, In stead of the means by which tho money power controls the destlnlon and liberties of tho people; free and fair elections and purity In politics, hence the Australian ballot system; everybody to have a fair and equal chance in the race of life; class legislation abolished and legislation for the masnes instituted; the capital and genius of men directed to the develop ment of our country's resources; every body engaged In legitimate enterpriser successful; to have this republic of, by and for the people. The lights are burning; the people aro taking a din In the public records. Tho financial history of our country Is being carefully considered from the formation our government to the close of the great est farce over acted on the American con tinent, the fifty-first session of the United States Congress. The Hank of North America, First and Second Hanks of the United States, Btate banks, railroad land grants, Union Pacific railroad steal, the bond system, exception clause to the greenback, national banking system, supplemental national bank act, funding bills, credit strengthening act, demon!- tizatlon of silver, repeal of the Income tax, destruction of fractional paper cur rency and Issuing Bllver fractional cur rency, resumption of specie payment, ex tending the charters of national banks, maintaining a war tariff In times of peace; present silver bill and McKlnley tariff bill are only a few of the Infamous links of the chain that bind tho people In slavery, which links the people aro din cussing; also trusts, combines, the Big 1 and "the way out" of their preHant de plorabla condition. The lights are burning, not only In Kansas, but In nearly every state and territory In the union. In Georgia the people elected thirty-four Btate senators out of forty-four, 134 state representa tives out of 175, and defeated Senator Oorden. Gorden Is to the democratic party of Georgia what John J. Ingalls la to the republican party of KansaB. The cry that "the present silver bill la a step In the right direction," Is found like the cry, "the national banking eya- tera Is the best In the world," to need three words added to make it a correct statement "for the banker." "Harrison and protection" In 1882, like McKlnley In 1800, will go down llat. The treasury surplus will not be an Issue In 1802; the dominant party absorbed, the surplus. The republican campaign managers have suddenly discovered that the photo grapher photographed the republican va cant seats instead of democratic. Reciprocity Is understood where the lights are burning in the school houses, just as It Is understood by the republican leaders; that reciprocity which exists be tween them and the manufacturers ona supplies the campaign fund and the other reciprocates by taxing the "doar people." Kansas first In war and first In peace; 82,000 republican to 00. This, notwith standing the most vigorous republican campaign ever conducted on American solL The whole republican force in the nation waa brought to bear on the pood- ple's movement. The great forensic ora tors of the United States Senate were here; even President Harrison tried to again tie the lioys In blue to tho repuhli can kite. The republican judicial ma chlnery was brought In requisition, the "original package decision," the "Wilson bill;" tho later decision of the Kansaa supreme court; every iHWrtlble effort was made to sidetrack the people's movement; the most systematic wholesale and reck less jtermmal vilification of the people's candidates waa made; the "bloody shirt' racket. Kven tho republican league, ac cording to the Topeka Capital of Octo ber 11, isoo, was organized in nearly every county In the state, numbering 10, 000 members. What Is the Republican League?

Keep the lights burning, and the peo ple will regain their filched rights and free themselves from their present de plorable condition of slavery.
