Railroad Presicenfc (to Clerk prevent this weat her from obstrWfmir instruct the Government to call IN A PREDICAMENT. COLD USED TO PAY CURRENT EXPENSES. Will an KnortHDHI Surplus of Other Money Iy la the Treasury The Gold Reserve Myth Exploded Bondholders on Top. Although the administration ob tained by the sale of bonda during last year 1117,380,282 (or the alleged pur pose of redeeming greenbacks and treasury notes, yet Mr. Carlisle is now forced to admit officially that with the exception of $12,378,451 every dollar of that gold was used to pay the current expenses of the government. The exact amount of gold used for meeting cur rent expenses was 1105,002,143. The report of the treasurer further shows that on July 1, 1894, the unex pended balances' of appropriations ag gregated $78,291,105, and the total amount available for expenditures on that date was $364,616,414, making the total available appropriation on July 1, 1894, $442,907,520. The expenditures during the six months ended December 81, 1894, amounted to $168,952,480, leav ing an unexpended balance on January 1, 1895, of $255,955,039. You see the bonds were Issued to keep up the gold reserve. Wonder why the proceeds were used for current expenses. The republicans like Reed, say be cause of lack of revenue. Somebody has surely lied. With $250,000,000 of surplus In the treasury, it is strange that the gold- worshiping administration should havo allowed the sacred gold reserve to be spent for anything else except to main tain the parity of gold and silver. , Funny government, anyway, that mortgages the country to buy gold to pay current expenses when it already , has a surplus that It can't appropriate ,', ,', fast enough to keep it from crowding , the vaults. .c.. This is an awful condition that so , , much money should get plied up in the V(.. way of the policy of the administration to issue $500,000,000 of bonds, i This 1b a predicament. Why don't Congress get a hustle on ltsolf and appropriate money to buy )-. - ' more guns? Clear the deck get this base money out of the way, so that the President ! : can store up the gold he Is buying. i Money must not be allowed to accu i i . . mulate when all the money lenders of the world are clamoring for a chance to " '' '"' lend us gold on fifty-year bonds. They must be accommodated, or they will bust and great will be the bust thereof. The parity of gold and silver must be preserved if we have to buy all the gold In the world to do it. Just as soon as we get all the gold, then the money lenders will restore sli ver and we can buy that at the same price. We must save the money lenders. It ; we don't Grover won't get his pay from Mr. Rothschilds. Here's all this confounded money piled up here, and when the people see it, they are liable to kick us off the continent for borrow ing more We must appropriate or perish. The gold reserve was a good scheme but now we're in a pretty mess of ', bugs. The papers have been prying into , the private affairs of the government, and found that we had plenty of money all the time. .

INTRICACIES OF BANKING. ,(); A" (Coorert the Expert Bank Officials Into VIA Bonded Government EmploTetv i fin the course of an editorial on "The nnvavinnant n n A DanVtnv " Uarnne'e Weekly says: "Long experience has demonstrated that, with few exceptions, the politl of We attar)-Iyou o not itronce the United states nans, l snail out the Federal Tpoops. clans who are sent to Congress or who become members of the cabinet are not capable of mastering the Intricacies of the banking business." Something occult about the banking business, isn't there? Ordinary mor tals can't comprehend this idea of get ting in debt for thousands of dollars, and then drawing interest on your debts while you pay none on what you owe! This business of cornering money and compelling people to pay you a big rate for the loan on your credit or your promissory notes, is Indeed a puzzle. Yes, it is a very peculiar and "Intri cate" business almost as hard to un derstand as three-card monte or the shell game. As politicians and repre sentatives of the people are incapable of comprehending, it, the only safe course is to give the bankers the power to frame our currency laws. As they are now, the money power Is able to control about everything; but there may be some points in which the bank ers could improve these laws, and make it easier to rake in the fruits of others' labor. How nice if the common people could only be made to believe such stuff that finance is a matter utterly beyond their comprehension, and it would be safer for them to try to legislate on the tides and the law of gravitation than to tamper with the currency. Wouldn't the fellows on the inside who under stand all the "intricacies" of getting something for nothing by hocus-pocus ing the money supply have a picnic? If money were something the people could take or let alone; if the law didn't make it a legal tender and com pel them to pay their debts in It; if It wasn't the only means by which they can conveniently and economically effect the exchanges of their products, then it might be sr.fo to pass the sub ject by as too intricate for ordinary mortals. But, as it is largely by means of their manipulation of the money supply that the few are able to rob the many of the fruits of their toll, it be hooves every man to study the money questions and understand all the devious and "intricate" methods by which wealth uses money to oppress and defraud labor. And about the first question to ask these masters of the "Intricacies" of banking Is: Why should one man's debt circulate as money and draw Interest rather than another's? Star and Kansan. What Fools These Laborers Be. A few days ago 100,000 laborers pa raded the streets of the City of Mexico, with banners and music, demanding to be led against Guatemala. There is a dispute between Mexico and Guate mala about a piece of swamp which probably Isn't worth 10 cents per acre, and whose ownership could easily be settled by resurvey or arbitration. It has never done the laborers of either country any good, and never will. Yet these 100,000 Mexican laborers parade the streets, clamoring for war! Is it any wonder that tyrants, In so many shapes, rule the people when' we see that the people themselves are such fools? The kings quarrel, and the peo ple do the fighting that's the history of mankind. Here we are pretending to be civilized. Almost 1,900 years of Christ and his gospel of peace have been our teachers, and yet we turn out. 100,000 strong, with banners flying. drums beating, and horns tooting de manding to be. led against bayonets and bullets to settle the boundary line of a wretched wilderness of swamp! No wonder our masters despise us Tom Watson. How We Soar. Six years ago this month August Bel mont stood in the sawdust of Madison Square Garden and awarded ribbons to stump tailed fox terriers. At that time his fame rested on the ownership of the champion brace of the gamy breed which was the height oi canine vogue. As bench show Judge and president of the American Kennel club be gradually acquired national reputation. To-day he designates to the United States gov ernment the terms upon which gold by the hundredweight shall be fur nished for redeeming currency notes. He negotiates with a president and a secretary of the treasury in secret upon the fate of a nation's contracts. That Is the beauty of a free country. You can't tell when the man you esteem be neath your serious notice will have a big slice of the country standing in his name. St. Louis Republic. The constitution says: "Congress shall l ave power to borrow money on the m'M oi the Unit-I St.us." .N..w arises the question how Ktnp Cruver and Lord Cadis s acquired that power. A GRAND ADDRESS, DELIVERED BEFORE THE INDUS TRIAL LECION. en. Paul Tan Dee Toort Rerlews the Situation and Hake an Eloquent Ap peal Let Organisation Be the Watch word of the People's Fartrv The duty that has devolved upon me In assuming the position of Command er-in-Chief of the Industrial Legion has been the most burdensome of my life. I spent a quarter of a century In building up the Grand Army, holding all Its offices of evry grade, and gave after my term as Commander-in-Chief several years in assisting In developing the Women's Relief Corps, which was organized under a call issued by me, and in all these years I never had the load to carry that has been crowded Into the last two, In doing the work put into my hands by the National Executive Committee of our party. I have had more anxious days and sleep less nights than I care to number. It Is well known I never wanted the place, endeavored to resign at the close of the campaign of 1893, but have been compelled to bear the burden, and am now here to turn it over to some one with capacity and patience greater than mine. The Legion was organized by the National Executive Committee of the People's Party, acting unofficially, at their meeting at Memphis, Tenn., on November 19, 1892. In conjunction with them, about one hundred of the leaders of the Farmer's Alliance and other Industrial orders became its charter members. The notification of my election came from Hon. H. E. Taubeneck and Geo. P. Washburn, and the formal notice from the secretary of the National Committee, J. H. Turner, who had also been made Adjutant General of the Le gion. I at first declined the position, but when earnestly urged from all quarters, I insisted that if I accepted the constitution should be revised, se crecy eliminated and a simpler form adopted. A meeting was called at In dianapolis on December 29, 1892, and Messrs. Taubeneck, Rankin and Tur ner and a large delegation attended. On the distinct understanding that the Na tional Committee would endorse this plan and hold up my hands with all their power and push the work, I ac cepted, and the officers of the National Committee Issued the following appeal: "We kindly request that the People's Party state, county and local commit tees in every state in the Union do all in their power and lend a helping hand to organize the Industrial Legion. Push the organization into every state, coun ty, precinct and school district in the land. "H. E. TAUBENECK, Chairman, "J. H. TURNER, Secretary, "M. C. RANKIN, Treasurer." At the meeting of the National Exe cutive Committee at Chicago, August 2, 1893, the committee again renewed that request. At the meeting of the full committee at St. Louis, February 22, 1894, the following resolution was adopted as a part of the report of tho committee on address: "Resolved, That we renew our recommendation adopt ed at the meetings of the National Ex ecutive Committee at Indianapolis and Chicago, and earnestly urge every state and county committee to organize the Industrial Legion in every voting pre :inct in the land." At a meeting of the full committee at St. Louis, December 29, 1894, the fol lowing resolution reported by the unan imous vote of the committee on or ganization was adopted: "Resolved, That while we do not attempt to dic tate to any state as to the plan of or ganization it shall adopt, we renew the recommendation of the national com mittee in favor of the organization of the Industrial Legion in every precinct in the land; and, further recommend that no dues shall be exacted only from legions that operate the rebate plan, and that in all cases where members are able, they be urged to send ten cents per annum to headquarters; that all clubs or other orders that wish to change into legions shall send 20 cents for supplies, and that original legions Bhall send 60 cents, but that no legion shall be denied a charter when it is unable to pay for it, and that these organizations shall be called People's Party Clubs, People's Party Legions or Industrial Legions, in order to suit the conditions in each state, and that Rule 15 of instructions of the Industrial Legion be dropped, and that all Peo ple's Party clubs or legions shall report to the same headquarters in order to avoid confusion and to perfect a sys tematic organization." So, that includ ing the meeting at Washington, Febru ary 23, 1893, the national executive :ommlttee have endorsed the legion three times and the full committee twice. At Chicago, August 2, 1893, Messrs. Donnelly, Stricklor and Ran 'ln were added to the executive coun cil, making the entire executive com- : aittee of the People's Party. In addl-' '.ion to the above many state conven- ( .ions, a great majority of the state jommlttees and other Important dele- (ate bodies of our party have approved i It, and to further demonstrate the ac ceptance of this form of organization, we bear on our books the names of over 1.200 of the best and brightest workers of our cause, who have taken a formal commission as legion recruiting officers; we have mailed thousands of constitu tions and instructions In response to requests from individual members of our party in every state. From the very beginning we have had the constant aid of the reform press; they have published all our circu lars, also made editorial appeals and we have the service of tho Ready Print Populist columns and W,. S. Morgan, the efficient and alert sentinel of the National Legion, sent a special edition of his paper to all the legion members, and all recruiting officers at his own expense, and has constantly kept the legion before the people. I cordially thank the People's Party press every where for their potent help; they rep resent a gallant band whose sacrifices will never be known, who cannot be bought, sold or bartered, sad whose unselfish and unrewarded labor to our party is beyond all praise. The legion will and does fill the long- felt want of a compact political body, It Interferes with no other organiza tion; it is simply the partisan club, and its method of organization has met with the cordial approval of our party and is even admired by those who differ from us. All the valid objections that have been made are covered by the resolution adopted by the national committee on December 29 at St. Louis, and ail the clubs and farm and labor orders can be chartered by sending names of members and 20 cents, with out change of officers or their titles. This was the idea of the national com mittee and reformers who made the le gion, who provided in the original con stitution that all farm and labor orders should be chartered free. I have many and sore grievances that I could air; I have received treatment that I have a right to resent during my life, and send a vendetta down to my tribe, but I here and now bury it all and consecrate myself anew to the work. Realizing the deplorable con dltion of our nation, that men are noth ing but the dust of the earth, and that if we would hand down liberty and free government to coming people, we must bear our burden and faint not, I for bear. I deem it my duty to speak plainly in reference to the difficulty of organizing the People's Party. The forces that compose it have been or ganized to death and scarcely a week passes but that some versatile genius evofves some new plan to band the people together and still further divide our forces, We have hundreds of dis cordant camps and scarcely one of them hold a national meeting, but days are devoted to charges and counter-charges of corruption and fraud. These organ izations, united, cost a vast sum of money, pay large salaries and are gen erally firm in the opinion that nobody should be allowed to organize but the peculiar forces that unite with them. From all of the organizations in the cities the People's Party has not yet received in the nation even the num ber of voters that are claimed to hold membership In one. If we received these labor votes we could carry every city in the United States. While labor forces willingly pay large dues and assessments to all the different orders they object to the small dues of the le gion and the charter fees, and these we have continually reduced and yet the members have left me to bear the bur den and pay the bills, and besides, to contribute office rent and the clerical labor of myself and family free of charge. In other words, they have thousands of dollars for non-partisan organizations and not a cent for poli tics, and leave the national committee and the National Legion headquarters bankrupt and cramped for even pos tage for the enormous correspondence which comes from all the people. In addition, we have a dozen farm orders who are, to say the least, not prosper ous, who have graduated their mem bers largely Into the People's Party; have wasted two years of effort of the best organizers In the nation, trying to revive or resurrect while their mem bers have simply marched on to the front and demanded partisan organi zation. All the above orders feared the legion would interfere with their work, and hence, we had, If not the open and ac tive, the negative opposition of the governing forces of all of them, who have simply said wait, and see if we cannot resurrect our own. I have al ways been a firm believer in labor or ganizations and unions and when I ac cepted my position, I said In the ad dress: "I am assured that the legion does not Interfere in any way with any of the industrial orders which have so grandly done their part in. educating the people, but simply fills the long felt want of supplying a compact, poli tical body, in which all can unite on one common creed and the only test of membership be loyalty to the platform of the People's Party; if I deemed we should in any way conflict with any of the great industrial or labor or ganizations I should have nothing to do with it." It we propose to have any organiza tion worthy of the name for 1896, we must all bury selfish interests and unite all the organizing force we have in the party to band all the people in sym pathy with us In one organization, and that the one endorsed by the official voice of the party. The machinery Is all ready, the workers duly commis sioned, we have made a beginning in all the states but eight, and if added to the patriotic appeal of all the great leaders of labor the reform press will still further continue their noble work, we can win the battle. If the 2,000,000 voters of the People's Party, with the women and noble youth, who are . our inspiration and hope, would all meet on a given day and Join the People's Legion, it would send dismay among the money changers the world over. I think all the latior leaders are now convinced that It le folly to strike; they do not even support each other, and in every one that is inaugurated the plutocratic forces have wild-eyed bands of anarchists to commit depreda tions that prejudice the masses. If Mr. Debs had been supported by all the la bor organizations In the United States he could have won; but how many stood off cold-hearted and said to themselves: If he wins it will disband all of our "orders and make his the great labor order of the world; so they let him fall and show more sympathy by resolutions than they did by actual all. When I contemplate the provoca tion of organized labor I wonder at their patience and submission, trampled un der foot, robbed, shot down like mad dogs, turned into the street, their places taken by a horde of scum, shipped here from off the streets and amid the slums of Europe, hurled into Jail by dishonest, tyrannical Judges, they submit to the majesty of the law though its executors degrade its holy teachings and use their power as an engine of oppression. The only place to strike is at the ballot box and the way to get there is to organize the peo ple Into the People's Legion; it covers every situation, it answers every pur pose, It fills every want and if the pluto cratic agencies determine to use force we can be ready if we are wise in the present hour. If we do not rally now we deserve to be enslaved, and I firmly believe that the only hope of settling the tremendous perils that confront us as a nation is in the immediate organ! zation of all the people who demand emancipation from foreign rule. The developments during the past two years must convince the masses that dangerous elements are at work and that the foes of liberty are en trenched in the very citadels of the re public. They own the President, his cabinet, the great newspapers, and con trol the leaders of both the old parties. If the spirit of the men that raised liberty poles in New York and threw the tea in Boston harbor was not dead in this nation the whole people would resent the foreign influences exerted on American soil. On the one hand, the king of the Jews, RothBchils, dominat ing the financial affairs of the nation, on the other, a potentate who does not speak the English language, ruling with an iron hand the spiritual and meddling with the temporal affairs of 6,000,000 of our people, and the politi cians of both the old parties afraid to murmur for fear they will lose votes. I am opposed to foreign dictation and will Join hands with any reform force to get rid of it at once and forever. I would brush away the aggression of Great Britain, which from the very be ginning has been the open and secret enemy of our Republic. I would adopt a vigorous foreign policy. Let the na tion cease to be a cipher on the map of the world; we can afford to be indepen dent. We produce 95 per cent of our raw material, and Great Britain Is compelled to buy 90 of hers, and why we should be chained to her chariot wheels Is because our rulers are shame less traitors to our interests. Oh, for the spirit of the fathers of 1776! It is not what we have in our plat form that creates so much criticism, but it is largely what men in our party advocate outside of it, for there is not a vital doctrine in that platform that does not appeal to the common sense and patriotic instinct of the whole American people. We stand with every patriot that helped found the Repub lic and make the constitution on the money question. We stand with Jack son and Lincoln. We are in favor of the money of the constitution. The cardinal doctrines of the graduated in come tax, postal savings bank, and ownership of railroad and telegraph systems is advocated by millions out side of our party; there is scarcely a country in the world but ours that does not enjoy the benefits of these blessings. To-day the European holders of our railroad bonds are demanding that the strictest possible federal supervision shall be inaugurated before they will invest another dollar or even protect . auu.ucr uu.ittr ur even proiBCl kng or tQ overrlde Congress, what interests they haye. The. leading defy the pe0pie and trample law and German and English financial papers constitution under foot. The Roths have declared that such must be the childs" bond trasaction is the most case. unB ui me Dooaie agents oi me administration, Congressman Strauss, of New York, declared so in a speech I in Congress a short time ago, and Sen-. ator Vilas, another spokesman of the administration, made a desperate fight to have the government own and oper ate the mail cars, when the postoffice bill was pending in the Senate last week. Rocently Carroll D. Wright de clared in a public address that In a few years the government would oper ate at least the railroad systems of tho country. The National Tribune, the organ of the Grand Army, urges a po3- tal savings bank, and that system and a government telegraph has been advo- though poor in purse, mortgaged and cated by the postoffice department un- , many of themde3tltute and out of e ai der all administrations, ever since the ployment, are honest, patient, law-abld-days of John A. J. Cresswell. i ln8: peoplo, and of the thousands of let- Thfl mon whn .Wonofa on J.,- ters received at my office, there were tax cannot fly with their property to a ! country in Europe where they will not be compelled to pay one. I have no prejudice against men who have amassed millions honestly. I know some who are noble in every way and who favor this tax; but generally speak- ing, I am in favor of taxing the stolen millions, aggregated in the hands of insolent, shoddy aristocrats, while they are alive, with an income tax, and after they are dead with an inheritance tax. It is a strange thing that the very planks in our platform that are the law of the land in the nations of Europe, whose method of .government our plu tocratic citizens so thoroughly admire, are th3 very ones that are singled out as the most terrific wild-cat doctrines that were ever advocated by the luna tics of the world. The People's Party Is the only straight silver party in existence. Had it not been for the dovoted, unselfish labors of its 2,000 newspapers, 10,000 orators and 2,000,000 voters, the cause of silver would have been forever lost. During all the time that we have made this fight without a dollar of aid from any source, except the contributions of the people, we have been constantly opposed, ridiculed and vllllfled by some of the men and organizations claiming to represent the very essence of the sil ver cause. While they have squandered thoiutads of dollars in useless efforts, they have, by adhering to the two old parties, or trying to create a new one, and thus divide the silver forces, been a constant hindrance to our progress. The mass of our voters are not mine owners. They represent the indus trial classes, and have lost more In one day. by the demonetization of silver than the mine owners do In a year. By Senator Jones' estimate, the wheat growers lost $100,000,000 a year, the cotton planters $250,000,000 and tie wage workers, since 1873, enough money to build and equip all the railroads in the United States. We will continue the battle for the free coinage of gold and silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, with out the consent of any Jew or Gentile or foreign nation on earth, and we ex tend fraternal greetings and the worm hand of fellowship to all who advocate the vital doctrines of the People's Party on the money question, and invite them to join with us la this great struggle, with the full assurance that the Peo ple's Party fetters the conscience of no human being, that we are simply mov ing on educational lines until we can all meet in 1890 and prepare a line of battle to meet the enemy. There Is no hope from either of the old parties; the People's Party polled the second high est vote in 22 states. The democratic party is dead In the West. It Is reek ing with fraud and odious with ballot box stuffing, and if we had an honest election it could not cary a Southern state. It deserves to die, and both It and the republican party, as represent ed by their leaders, are In the grasp of the money power, and each want to preserve the clutch of the banks over the nation. If 4,000 national banks were not fighting silver, the battle would soon be won. Their power to issue money must be destroyed, and on this line, that the government shall issue the money, we will wage the bat tle, inviting all the forces who favor this doctrine to unite with us. . All the attempts made to change our platform are premature and unwise; no new or old party was ever called on to change Its platform between conven tions. Each state, at Its convention, can formulate their ideas, and when we meet in 1896 God will give us wis dom to agree on some sound principles that will unite all the reform forces and lead the people to victory. No conference, no self-constituted dicta tors, or imaginary statesmen or would be political bosses have any right tov assume the power to obliterate the grand document that has marshaled 2,000,000 voters in line, and I resent the dictum, th,at because a man stands by the platform he is a traitor to the Peo ple's Party. When I left the republican party I burned the bridges behind me, and I never will be sold or delivered to the democratic party, whether it has labeled sliver, gold, nickel or brass, and it our so-called leaders will stand firm we will gather In all the reform elements and' elect the next President. All we have to do is to hold the fort, educate the masses, open our doors. North, South, East and West, and wait for the "Com ing of the Lord." Every plan submitted In Congress by the money power is ten times more dangerous to the people than conta gious disease. Every one of them has all the vital principles denounced and , ridiculed in the sub-treasury' plan. Every one of them is class legislation of the vilest kind, and the leaders of the republican party have endorsed the fraudulent issues of bonds and both the old parties seek to load the nation with bonded indebtedness, payable In gold for a generation to come. Cleveland and Carlisle should be Impeached and hurled from power. No more rotten ! and corrupt men ever ruled over a na i tlon. They usurp more power than any, snameiui page oi our nistory. uenerai Banks once said: "The treasury de- partment is British ground." So it is l-aay. ana unaer mis administration the pawn-broker's sign should be add ed. There Is not an anarchist or com muslst in the People's Party; not a bomb thrower in our line; the men who rob and plunder the people, who evade the law, who purchase and bribe andj steal the "livery of Heaven to servo the devil In" are the real anarchists and have brought a horde of that class from across the sea. More than 80 per cent of our voters were born on American soil, and those who were born abroad are the very best element In our nation. The rank and file of the People's Party, J!?.?0'? f.lrlnn incendlary ex" yieBaiuus. j We polled our largest vote In the We3t, where the Union soldiers are the most numerous, and we have a great army with banners of the men that wore the blue marching with us.

The greatest event in this whole political revolution is the magnificent conflict for the rights of the people waged in t' South, and in 1896 they will emancipate all their states and help plant the People's Par ty candidate in the White House. Let us all consecrate ourselves anew to the holy cause A great orator recently said: "It has been demonstrated that great wrongs may be righted and great reforms achieved without the shedding of one drop of human blood." Let this be our aim; an army of peace, moving, in a resistless tide upon the ballot boz, with this pledge in the words of the Im mortal Lincoln written upon all our hearts: "We here highly resolve that! this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom and that the gov-' ernment or the people, by the people! and for the people shall not perish from.'! - the earth.
