Populists claim that this terrible ondition of the masses Is the natural anl inevitable result of certain laws that have been passed in the interest of the ."u.-h few and against the poor many.

Siler was demonetized in '73 for the Vary purpose above utated, namely to ea.leti the rich and enslave the por. T.ia'. it has done its work and done it wjII, let the -facts accord. This was nearly twenty-tbreo years ago. The dark and damnable plot bas long ago bsun unearthed and exhibited to an astoniBl.id nation. The act has been denounced by all the uood men in both th s democratic and republican parties Tie rep-blicars were in full control ot the government for a great number of years and they did not rectify it. For nearly three years past the demor critic parly has been in full control of the machinery of government, and t icir p rtv, be it said to their shame, after all its previous pretenses, added iusult to injury by taking away froai th.i people the last vistige of financial legislaf.io'i calculated to in any way h?!p 1 he iiiHssts. , Nor iio either of the dominant par ties promise anything now. Their platform 011 the silver questions in H:2 wore S3 much alike that the one could bo exahanged.forthe other with out doing volence to either party. And, what is still, worse, neither of them are capable of being undeistood, They meant an thing everything, or mining, just as the exigencies of the cr.se in Hi lit demand. There is not a democrat or republi can in the country anywhere who will da'e to venture an opinion as to the future of his party on this graat ques tion. True, in some localities they pass reolutions;demanding tlie free and unlimited coinage of silver, but what else do they; demand regarding money? Nothing. They entirely ig nore the fact that the national banks are 111 full control of the paper money of the nation and that;these institu tions, to whose interests It is to have money scarce, cau call in their circula tion at any moment they choose, and effectually offset any general good that might come from the free and unlim ited coinage of silver. They are en tirely silpnt regarding the restoration to the general government, where it belongs, the function of issuing all the paper money. In tact, in the eastern states both parties coincide with Mr. Cleveland in his demands for nil I greater powers to be given the bank., by the "government going out of Ihe banking business." They are to beguile the public into their way ot thinking with such honeyed phrases as "sound money,! t;tinnpt mnnev." "stao'e currencv.- money of the world," etc., little real bins that the people arr getting on to flieir screnipg of tonchfri'. An linn- est dollar Is on i that pays a dollar of debt and buys a dollar's worth of the product 0? labor. Ojb tnat buys less in. iy be said to bo dishonest, but no more so than oni tba" bays more.'; Populists believe that to can tract a debt with a certain amount of money in circulation and afierwarus contract the currencey, works an injustice upon the debtjr clasies; thao -this jrocess has baeu ;golu. 0:1 for nearly thirty years; that the only way to remedy it Jb to ual) the .ajts ttiit wjre wrorn; and eai;t oirier lawi la their placa The history of the two dominant par ties warrants us In assuming thai neither of ibeiu wdl do anything ot the kinJ. The new silver party, at an organ ization of wl icu several attempts have beea madd, is eiually silent upou all thi pluses of fu mjney qussiion ex cept the free oinage of silver, which, if given us aloae-, us shown above, would hi of little or no, benefit to any oae, excepting possibly the owners of lurge silver mines. We dj not de mand mora money in ; circulation in or Jer to get the frej coinage of silver, but, oa the .coasrary, we want free coinage in order to get more money in Circulation. We are now right in the midst of a finaucial panic, which was set in mo tion in '93, by a preconcerted action upon the part of those .who are today reaping the benefits of it. There was not a time in 1893, or even now, bur that Mr. Carlisle could have closed up the panic and given tho .'people pros perity, and offset forever the sale of b)dduo get g)ld, by simply p:iylng ! :,t JJ; and ,t mMwa.. 1 .. .1 e -1 1 fit, might be well to say that he is only fol- bwiug the example set for him by his i ''P'-"" .Prcleces8ors They are, as t .V3rc, '-Uvo souls with but a single ,tha, wo hUlt that befl ,0:1.e' PopulUts oppose any sort of inter national co: f .'rence or agreement WlidtiJiVel'. Wd bjlieve that if con gress ever had the "poer to coin money and regulate the value there 6f," that it still posses it, and that any n5an who denies that we as a n itioa are able to run oar fl .uncial aft ill's, that such a m tu is eUhjr lacking in sense or patriotism, or most likely, both. OTlIER ISSUEH. Upon all other fundamental issues bjtb of the old parties are silent. All the means of communication anil transportation are In the bauds of private corporations and are being operated with one and only one end in viiw that of making nuney for those who operate them. Ho consideration is given the convenieuce or needs ot the people. Freight and passenger rates are placed at the very . top nueh tliH the people's circumstances will f iree their to pay. To belter conceal their robburies, railroad companies "water" their stocks and make the roads appear to have cost from ten to forty tlmt-s the real money invested in them, and ask the ieople to pay bullic ient, rates to pay interests 011 this fab ulous capitalization. Allot this, loo, after the people have actually built the roads and presented tliem to the companies. These same roads are allowed to own all the coalfields lii the country, and tl ose they do cot own they reuder 'uoperative through freight ratr-s winch no private coal company can pay and compete with them; shutting otf competition and thus becoming the sole arbiters in till questions, involving not only the comforts of life, but the life of the people No matter how ricn the ra ne, the prolbs land in the pocket ot the railroad companies; no matter bow large the crops of grain, these companies reap all the benefits. Through special favors given such men as B ickafeller, the price of oil can be put just as high as a suffering people can pay, and no other oil company can opmpete to reduce it. Hence we are suQering in a land of plenty.- Hunger and even starvation, almost in sight of groaning bins of grain, and poor laix nrs freezing al most at the door of the coal mine. The scripture that says. '"the earth is the Lord's, and the fullness thereof," has become obsolete and now should read:. "The earth belongs to corpor ations, and God's poor no longer have any right to live, here, because there is nothing for them to live upon." Populists believe that there should be something dxieto p it an end to tbisrefgn otterror. That these eieat Ltillt ei, called railroads, should be made to serve the interest of the whole people Instoad of a few. to tin end that tha bundles of nature sh xi'd be ICouliuuad on S,h ipMSissiifci ens You LfTord Without first seeing where you can get m the best value for your money.
