Morgan & Co., of London. Chauncey Depew has suggested as a means of getting round the new con stitutional provision in New York that forbids members of the legislature from riding on free railroad passes to vote themselves mileage tickets. If he did not as president of the Erie railway system, expect favors in return he cer tainly would not be so anxious for the members of the legislature to ridel free. He don't seem to fie votes fop e DANGER IS AHEAD. WE MUST NOT ABANDON OUR PLATFORM. The Next People's Party ConTentlon Must Be Controlled By PopulI.U A Popu llat I Known by Ills Indoraement of Fopullat Principle!. In all the discussion that has been going on with regard to the relation that should exist between the People's party and the new silver party, there is one Important phase of the matter which, so far as we know, has not been touched. It Is the question as to who will control the national conven tioa of the People's party in 18967 If Mr. Taubeneck's "policy" Is Indorsed we understand that the fight is to be maUto on the currency question alone. If It has not said so in so many words, there can be no other inference from what he does Bay. Now suppose we do this. Suppose that all the Populist papers would take up the fight on this line. The object would be to unite all who oppose the money power. On this basis every man who favored free coin age of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, and opposed banks of issue and interest bearing bonds, would be eligible to ejee tlon as a delegate to the national con vention. This would let down the bars for nearly every democrat in the west and south, and many republicans In the same sections. No better plan could be conceived for the purpose of turning the People's party over to the politicians of the two old parties, and permitting them to control the conven tion, make the platform to suit them, or break the convention up in a row. If it is urged that this will not be the case, we ask how are you going to help it? The politicians will take every advantage they see open. With such an arrangement Bland and Bryan and the whole tribe of demagogues could come in. How could they be kept out? It is understood that we are going to make the fight along those lines and that is what they are fighting for. At the very outset we start with the avow ed object of trimming the platform. What for? To satisfy men who are not now in the party. Gen. Weaver admits that the "next national conven tion will be factional." That is it will follow In the footsteps of the two old parties and formulate its platform, not from the standpoint of principles, but so as to "catch the voter 'gwlne and comln'." This Is Mr. Taubeneck's policy, and the policy of the politicians. It never emanated from the people, nor will It be Indorsed by them. It is the policy which prompted the French revolutionists to unite in deposing the king, and afterwards to turn and de stroy each other, making what is known as the "reign of terror." The People's party as at present composed is practically a unit on the platform. We believe that a majority of the voters in the United States are in favor of the position we take on fi nance, land and transportation. But they ore groping In the the dark. All they want is a little more light They are thirsting for knowledge. So far as the old parties are conoerned, they are demoralized. Now Is our golden op portunity. Now is the time to spread the true gospel of reform. Why should we hesltaate now, and only take up questions which the two old parties will likely cover in some way that will de lude the Toters again? Why not throw our anti-monopoly banner to the breeze and announce to the world that we are opposed to all monopolies and will fight It out on this line If it takes a thousand years? The election of of ficers la not always a victory. It brings with K responsibilities and the redemp enjoyjt, but on continuance cf the tion of pledges. To meet the expecta tions of the people we must be able not only to unite before election, but to stay united afterward. The Fifty third congress is a valuable object les son In support of the truth of this statement. The party was united at the polls, but divided In congress. It had the responsibility, but with a large majority in congress it failed to carry out its pledges. The success of the democratic party in 1892, was its Waterloo. To command the respect of the voters in this country a party must be consistent. It is not so when it changes Its platform to suit the poli ticians' whims. The People's party platform may need some change in phraseology and possibly the dropping of one or two features, and the addi tion of that many others, but the questions of finance, transportation and land must not be disturbed. If we were suggesting changes we would make no reference to the subtreosury and incorporate the referendum and government banks into the platform. All these things will come, and they are going to come soon. We must learn to be patient. The worst ene mies the People's party has are the men in the party who want office and can't wait until we can win a legiti mate victory. These men may be well meaning enough, but their judgment is warped by inordinate desire for official position. Uncle Charley Cunningham once said to the writer: "Morgan, we could handle the rascals If it wasn't for the fools In our party." The logio of events Is doing more for us now than we are doing for ourselves. The People's party is growing as It never did before. Why strike our flag and enter into the clamor for a new party. Why disband our army that presents a solid front and go over to one that has no front at all? The man who Insists on it and seeks by his per sistence to turn nine men out of every ten his way, will find that he has "kicked a durn solid dog," as the fel low said when he kicked the cast iron representation of a canine. W. S. MORGAN. Do Yon Know? Do you know what you are raising your child up for? Do you know what it can do in the future against the gi gantic monopolies that are crushing all competition? If .lt is a daughter and has to struggle for a living? Or it mar ries a man who gets out of work? You know the balance. Or a son who finds everv avenue of honest industry closed to men of his means? Crime Is the only thing left. Yet you, a rawer, are so eternally blind, so idolatrously preju diced to your party, that you oppose a party because these monopolists tell you It is "paternal," that offers your children an eaual show with every child in the nation. The rich don't want your child to have an equal show they want their children to have all the advantages, and you vote for their methods! Great heavens, how can you be so dumb you cannot see through a trick so gauzy? What hypnotic spell blinds yofi to vote to destroy your" own life and that of your children that a few rich mar prostitute them for their pleasure? Fathers, think! Don't think of me or how it will affect your party, but think of your family just as It is. just as it is likely to be, and then of the monopolist's idle, vicious, extrava gant family. They are supported by your labor, on account of monopolies In private hands that should be in the ownership of the whole people. Com ing Nation.

The Rotten Metropolitan Preit. Events are constantly occurring to prove1 that capitalism is constantly making the public prints a vehicle for the conveyance of plutocratic ideas to the public, and that the metropolitan papers are run by hirelings who are paid to write what they do not believe, whose duty it is to conceal the truth and write what they know is not true. A year or so ago when the Lombard Investment company failed, which was a British company and plastered mort gages over Missouri, Kansas and other states, among the assets accounted for by the receiver were shares in the Kan sas City Times to the amount of $57, 000. This accounted for the tone and policy of that paper one of the most rabid gold-bug sheets In the west What did the Lombard Investment company want with stock in that pa per? The sheet never has paid Its own ers a legitimate dividend, or dividend on legitimate newspaper business. That stock with a great deal more from other sources, perhaps, for the same purpose, was to control the pol icy of the paper in the Interest of capi talism. Here is an Instance where we have the direct proof that English cap italists are using our American prints to not only educate American voters in their duties, but browbeat and abuse them for standing in the way of the schemes of these foreign robbers. It is said as a matter of fact that of the seven leading papers in New York city, a majority of the stock of five of them Is owned by English capital ists, and yet the American people are sucking their poison from such sources from the paid hirelings who manage them and, who simply make commerce of their opinions! All over the country as a rule, the papers democratic and republican, that carry the Associated Press dis patches are owned largely by bankers, railroads and other corporations, and these investments are not made with the view or expectation of profit in the same as many of them are worthless so far as dividends are concerned, but the investments are made for the pur pose of controlling the papers and use them in aiding them In their many schemes of plundering the people. Bankers have mortgages on many plants throughout the country for no other purpose than placing these pa pers under obligations to thi.ii, and thus enabling them to mold the policy of the papers particularly regarding the national banking question. You don't see any metropolitan dallies in the smaller cities saying anything in con demnation of the national banking system, or corporate interests goner ally, do you? The reason is that the penny-a-liners do not dare to do so. If they did they would lose their Job. Men employed on the metropolitan papers do not dare to write their hon est convictions, as not a man among them would hold a job an hour, if he should tell the truth, Instead of writ ing what he knew to be a lie. The would-be leaders In the Peo ple's party are learning a lesson they ought to have learned years ago. The men and women in this great reform movement recognize the leaders In the ordinary acceptance of that term. While they may recognize men and women in our ranks as advanced thinkers and zealous workers, the rank and file are thinking and acting them selves independent of would-be lead ers, and In proof of this we have only to refer to the storm of Indignation aroused all over the country by the efforts of a few fellows at Washington who sought to side-track the People's party on a slngle-plank Issue. More money is needed to open up the undeveloped resources of the country. American Steam Laundry. flUTTOIY & OSWIU), Proprietors. Telephone io7, West Sherman Street HUTCHISON, Ptwalea the Doctor! . Miss Rose Kamrath, daughter of Councilman Charles Kamrath of Day ton, Ohio, is just now puzzling the medical fraternity by a physical mal ady that has not only baffled local doctors, but is probably without paral lel In the records of medical science At recurrent intervals, Miss Kant rath's hands, arms and body are striped with clearly defined spiral streaks, as though they had been decorated with water color tints. Still more remarkable is it that the periods during which these phenomena are most strongly marked the girl sinks into deathlike swoons that are cataleptic in their intensity, and finally as a climax to a case that is probably with out precedent she is now on a fair way to recovery through the aid of a Christian science physician, whose pharmacoepla knows no drug other than mental and physchologlo ones. Miss Kamrath Bill! frequently sinks into unconsciousness and at times re spiration Is so faint as to be Impercep tible. American Girl Abroad. The Duchess de la Rochefoucauld, who was once upon a time and only a few years ago lovely Mattle Mitchell of Oregon and New York, Is said to be one of the most charming hostesses and one of the most brilliantly clever women In sunny France. Of the truth of this as sertion people who have the average opinion of the clever French women may have doubts, but of the duchesse's beauty there is only one opinion. She Is remembered In New York aB a lovely girl with perfect figure, superb snowy shoulders, which she always draped with chiffons, gauzes and tulles in off shoulder fashion, which showed to the best advantage the very classical con tour of the lovely shoulders. Miss Mitchell also had regular features, bronze gold hair, a complexion of daz zling pink and white, and lovely eyes like aquamarine jewels of a haunting shade of blue gray. No wonder that Paris imagines Senator Mitchell's daugh ter as clever In every way as she is pretty.
