the destruction of "liberty" i9 meant the
continuation of the present arrangement
of affairs by which the farmers, and
other producers have been, are cow, and
are yet to be deprived of the major part
of their produce.
The "civilization" to be preserved by
the destruction of "liberty" is intended
the perpetual existence of the conditions
whereby the laboring class'have been,
are now, and are yet to be defrauded of
the greater part of their hire.
The "civilization" to be preserved by
the destruction of "liberty" is meant the
everlasting inheritance, to us and our
children after us, of the national bank
system, national bonded indebtedness,
protection alone for the manufacturing
interests, and government partnership
with railroads, whisky trusts, and un
lawful aggregations of incorporated and
unincorporated oapital of all kinds.
The "liberty" to be destroyed in order
to preserve civilization is meant the de
struction of all organized or unorganized
efforts on the part of the farmers and
producers to secure for themselves a
living price for the produce of their
The "liberty" to be destroyed in order
to preserve civilization is meant the de
struction of the liberty of the laborer or
workman to obtain, with or without or
ganization, a just and living wage.
And the "liberty" to be destroyed in or
der that civilization may be preserved is
meant that the farmer and the laborer
shall be denied the privilege of uniting
politically in the struggle for a compe
tence, leisure and education for them
selves and family while living, and a
decent burial when dead. To success
fully accomplish the failure such politi
cal union would be all that plutocracy
could desire. Failing in this, it would
only be necessary to pass a law disfran
chising the labor vote. To ascertain
whether this has not been thought of,
let us read what the Indianapolis News
(democratic) says: "If the workingmen
had no vote, they would be more amen
able to the teachings of hard times."
Again, United States Senator Sharon, a
republican, said: "We need a strong
central government; the wealth of the
country has to bear the burdens of gov
ernment and shall control it."
The money power then seems disposed
to perpetuate itself, if it has to take the
ballot from the laboring class to do it.
The right of suffrage being lost, the de
nial of the right to bear arms would
easily follow. With both these rights
lost, the laboring classes would be abso
lutely helpless at the feet of plutocracy.
To be forewarned is to be thrice armed.
Therefore, the sooner all farmers, labor
era and workingmen unite in one com
mon political party, and stand together,
and vote together, the better it will be
for them and this republic J. S. Alli
son, in Locomotive Firemen's Magazine.
What ire You Dreaming Of!
My republican or democratic reader,
what are you dreaming of? Is it of a
time when all the offices and all the per
quisites will be held by your particular
party? Then what? Do you tb ink that
will add anything to your income if you
are not one of them? Do you think
such a condition will enable you to get
more wages for your labor or buy a
gallon of oil or a ton of coal or a pound
of freight for less than the trusts are
willing to allow you? If each of you
think this and each of you want these
things, how is it that, both parties hav
ing all the offices, you do cot have these
conditions? Now which one of you is
right? both of you cannot be, that is
plain. On what solid, irrefutable
groacdj are you sure ita altogether the
other fellow and not your party at all?
And are you satisfied that the simple
possession of all the offices by your
party would make any difference in the
condition of the people and the trusts?
To make any difference would cot some
laws have to be enacted and some re
pealed? And admitting this to be true,
which you cannot successfully refute so
long as you vote for law makers, did
you ever ask yourself, did you ever make
any serious inquiry, as to what the na
ture of these laws are (that should be
repealed or enacted? And if you think
you do know, are you positive beyond
doubt or cavil that your reasons are true
ones? And if you are sure of this, why
is it that you cannot make your other
old party brother see it, too? Then he
would help yon, if all are to be bene
fited, for it would benefit him with the
rest. Did it ever occur to you that
possibly you might be mistaken about
some thing politically, that others who
do no useful labor are getting
rich because you believe certain
phases that I have been continually
held up before you as being the correct
principles? Did you ever feel a desire to
know for yourself why such and such
things were so, why t all the rich men
want you to believe them I say did you
ever feel a desire to know why things
are as they have told you? Why do
bankers and monopolists decry "fiat"
money, for instance, when every encyc
lopedia, every philosopher, every philan
thropist, and every well-posted man cot
a politician, declares to the opposite
that there is and cannot be other than
fiat money. That money has no intrin
sic value, and if it had would be no
better nor worse for that feature. And
the same is true of those who advocate
monopoly-owned railroads and those
who demonstrate the advantages of a
public railroad system. I am cot quar
reling with you because you do not see
things as I do. I once, before I investi
gated for myself, believed as you do
now. I only ask these questions hoping
thereby to get you to thinking a thing
I am quite sure your political bosses,
your bankers, your monopolists gener
ally are very much opposed to your
doing. Hew can you know what reasons
have induced us to abandon the old
parties and all of us have belonged to
one or the other of them unless you
read and investigate m we have? Are
you afraid to read for fear of being con
verted? Or do you seriously think that
that which has convicted about 2 mil
lion of voters in a few years is unworthy
of the time and labor it would require
to read? What benefit have you had or
do you expect from the continued su
premacy of the old parties? Is it cot
time to ask yourself the question, or do
you prefer to be a mere machine for the
use and benefit of the politicians who
sell your citizenship to monopolies?
