" sincesitas " on the road. To the Editor of Thx Adyooats. En route to Chicago I met a strong de fender of the Republican party, who could find no words strong enough in which to condemn the "calamity" party, as he called the People's party. "The credit of the state had been ruined," etc After a short conversation he complained that he had been compelled to leave 16,500 in a Topeka bank because he could not invest it! His whole horizon began and ended In his own selfish de sires. How such men can expect to be followed Is a mygtery. He shuts hla eyes to facts. From the paper I bought next morning, as we n eared Chicago, he might have learned enough to set him thinking. Here are some of the fact?, which ought to open the eyes of the thinking people. The iEtna Fire Insurance company, of Hartford, Ct, has just declared a 20 per cent stock dividend of $250,000, lucres ing its capital to $1,500,000. This $250, 000 has been saved from profits and now is capitalized so as to allow the company to pay dividends on the Increased capital. It Is such stock watering which adds to the people's burdens and against which the People's party alone dares to raise its voice. The Chicago Sunday Tribune gives without comment a list of several hun dred places, reported by street and num ber, where the sweating process of cheap labor is practiced. The list shows crowd ed rooms, with poor ventilation, where men and women work at starvation pric es to earn a pittance to keep body and soul together. How easy for the noble patriots who support tho two old parties to shut their eyes to the facts and let matters take their course without Inter ference. Does any thinking man or woman expect either the Republican or Democratic party to take any action on such matters? If so, I admire the su blime faith. They content themselves generally with such expressions of sym pathy as the Democratic party of Kansas passed the other day expressing "sym pathy" for the Homestead men. As a railroad conductor said to me re cently, "The people have had expressions of sympathy from the old parties long enough; the laboring man had lost faith in both and proposed now to try the People's party." I shall soon be in New York and New England, and hope to send you some news of the feeling east regarding the People's party. Sinceritas. HABRISON'S SUBTERFUGE. To Catch Totes for a System That Will En slave them Four Tears Longer. From the Record, Danville, Pa. If ever there was a fraud sought to be practiced on the American people, it Is that which President Harrison is endeav oring to do by calling an international conference of the monarchlal nations of the Old World to establish a ratio for a standard of money to govern the Ameri can people. The patrlotlo American cit izen who cannot see through this flimsy scheme must be blind Indeed. Mon archies, who have spat on our flag time and again, and who would overthrow our free Institutions at any moment, if it was possible to do bo. Monarchy to establish a standard of value that would rob every producer or toiler, whether on the farm In mill, machine shop or behind the counter, of their God-given heritage. Monarchy that has plundered us of hun dreds of millions of gold, and the: pro ducts of mine, field and shop, annually, to satisfy the greed for gain, to fix our standard of value? Away with such humbuggery. , The conference Is only another subterfuge to catch the poor ig norant dupes (voters) Into supporting a system that will further enslave them the coming four years. Where is there a loyal citizen who does not know that England will never submit to a standard of money value that will strip her of her power (commercially) over this nation, the United States. It la Just as Impos sible to gain the assent of England to unite on a fixed silver ratio that will keep gold and silver at a parity as it would be to obtain their consent to an International conference to fix a protec tive tariff on articles of merchandise. England don't want a parity between gold and silver any more than she wants a protective tariff against her industries. Gold, as a standard of value in England and the United States, makes her mis tress of the seas and keeps other nations begging at her doors for money capital, gold, which, through her masterly states manshipin finance, always keeps gold flowing from all parts of the world Into her coffers. This international confer ence is the work of the old-bugs and the leading metropolitan press, subs! dized in their interest. It Is the same power that in all ages has subjugated man to slavery, barbarism and crime,and all the concomitant evils that afflict the human race. WORKINGMEN ARMING. Chicago's Labor Element to be Placed on a War Footing. Chicago, 111., July 13 Secretary Burns, of the carpenters' council, has received papers from the secretary of state which, when filled out, will entitle the working men of Chicago to form an independent military organization under the laws of Illinois. It is estimated that one week from the day of its Incorporation 3,500 men will have signed their names to the roll. The avowed object of the new company Is to enable labor to fight more successfully against capital when the latter brings to its aid private bodies of armed men. "There will be no defying the laws," said Secretary Burns. "We Intend only to see that our craft gets fair play. If the trouble breaks out again at Home stead between the militia and the strik ers it may lead to serious results here and we had best be prepared to meet whatever they may be." Announcement. The thirteenth annual camp meeting of the First Society of State Spirit ualists and Liberals, of Delphos, Kan., will begin August 15, and close the 22d. Good speakers and mediums will be In attendance. For full Information ad dress, I. N. Richadrson, Secretary. Le welling Tendered a Reception. Wichita, Kan, July 9. A public re ception was tendered L. D. Lewelling last evening by the board of trade on his return from the Omaha convention. Hun dreds of hitherto loyal Republicans joined with the People's party men and Democrats In assuring Lewelling of their hearty support Travelers always appreciate punctual train service, and are beginning to notice particularly the enviable record the Mem phis road Is making In that direction. The fast mail train from the south ar rived at the Kansas City union depot exactly on time every day during tbe month of June, with a single exception. On the morning of the 8th this train was thirty minutes late on account of waiting at Memphis for connections. The south bound fast train which leaves here at 5:40 p. m. reached both Memphis and Birmingham exactly on time every day throughout the month. Kansas City Timet, July 7.

There la "dark, black crape" on the CapitaVs door, placed there after hear ing the result from the Democratic con vention hall last night Slate Journal Andrew Carnegie, and his co-worker, Frlck, have done the Republican party more damage, In this Homestead affair, than any other agency. He has done It altogether without cause or reason. State Journal George L. Douglas, the chairman of the committee on resolutions of the Re publican state convention, Is out in a column article in the Capital in explana tion of the platform. Now if some one will explain the explanation, we shall be able to know as much as we did before. Lawrence Record (Rep.) Solely from a .Republican standpoint we should like to know, why, with all the protection he gets from the tariff, Carnegie is unable to pay his working men living wages? Also, why It Is nec essary for him to barricade and fortify his works against the assault of work men when the tariff has so wonderfully raised the wages of those same work men? We don't understand It, at all. Lawrence Record. Fred J. Close, the People's party can didate for congress, First district, Is an ex-Union soldier who lost an arm upon a southern battlefield. But his being a maimed ex-Union soldier will be no bar rier to the villainous attacks of the hypo critical crowd that professes such pro found respect for an old soldier. The plutocratic worshippers have no use for the old soldier who refuses to bow down to the g. o. p. calf. Burlington Courier. It Is a historical fact that when the rebellion broke out. Stonewall Jackson advocated the policy of taking no prison ers ana giving no quarter, but of shoot- Ins Union .soldiers whenever captured. W. A. Harris, the People's candidate for congressman at large, was a member of stonewall J action's staff. vol Miller. It Is nowhere recorded that Stonewall Jackson advocated giving no quarter, and if he did, that Is nothing against the members of the staff. And Col. Harris was not a member of Jackson's staff any how, but of Lee's staff. Now invent some mean story of Lee and make Col. Harris responsible for that Leaven' worth Times. Young D. R. Anthony says that when the news came into the Learenworth Times office that the People's party had nominated Col. W. A. Harris for congressman at larar. old D. R. Anthony said: "Well, it's a Union soldier against rebel soldier, and, by the eternal, I'll keep my mouth shut!" Iola uegister. If you want discussion, pitch In. Geo. T. Anthony was not a Union soldier dur ing the war. He was never within gun shot of a rebel His company was never ordered to the front until near the close of the war, when, by accident, his men got in sight of tome fleeing rebels, when George angrily gave the order, "Reverse your battery," a name by whlohhehaa ever since been known.
