The- proper ; ticn is to take off all lim

out government support 412 W fr -iins of
Kilver and the new silver dollar would
be of tho Bim« exchangeable value. The
QueMtioa, therefore, is, What effect

Under the capt ion of "Return- t
ing Prosperity," the Winona j

tains the following:
'•Tli.it 'better limes' are begin-j

hegining i ( > cv .'t.ie out <u its hiding
place; that the clouds of adver
sity are begining to roll away, and
that the near future will witness
hu active business revival.
"The fact, that manufacturing
euterprise ate increasing iorccs
and raising wages,while the price
of manufactured goods is lower
than ever before, proves conclu
sively that the Democratic idea of
l.oiit reform is u patriotic one.
The ni in who goes into a store
new and for SO or $8 buys a suit
of clothe,.: that formerly co*t him

iK'i'pld nr/sfflg
every'.thing they eat at home
and receiving 7 or 8 cents a pound
for tbttoii, all n iiït admit that
there is no great cause for com
plaint. Ti ne, f ee silver and oth
er legislation would in all proba
bility further increase prosperity,
yet we are going to have letter
limes without these things. Ko
amount or kind of legislation can
override the decree of Almighty
God, that m p.n shall earn his bread
by tho sweat of ins brow, and no
party or politician can truthfully
promise it. If people were out of
de.bt, there would be greater pios
perH; '.a this country. It is the
old -.ebt that weighs the people
down, and but for this there
would be little or no .cause for
complaint. Still, we ought to bo
thankful Unit things are br'ghten
:*:g an 1 that an air of confidence
and prosperity is beginning to per
vade our entire country.
Of course,"it will he awful bad
on the populist party for things
to improve, for the pops,live
move and have their being in ca
lamity, panics and hard times.
They are the ratura! outgrowth of
such conditions, and while the
coming of be! ter times will utter
ly ruin the political prospect» of
a huge number of pop bosses, yet
the people wiii rejoice over the
matter and leave the pop,party
to die in peace. So mote it be.
