T- DENNIS & aii uhiip CLOTHING Wc have had but little to say of late of this department for the simple reason that owing to a very heavy early Spring trade our stock was badly broken, not to say in a rather dclapidatcd condition, owing to the fact that our buyers were ''laying low" watching the opportunities to make deals that would make competitors howl. We are now opening large in voices of BALTIMORE AND CINCINNATI Tailor Me Goods ana arc snowing everything new and nobby in men's, boys, and children's suits and pants, and at prices that will make business hum.

I hope you will give space in your paper for a reply to an artiolo headed "Tho St. Louis Demands," in which my namo, as a oandidate for congross is mentionnd. I will go before tho people on tho St. Louis demands, and am trilling to go into a joint discis sion, with any man in tho state on tho merits of the St. Louis platform, es pecially tho ownership of railroads. No one can form any just concep tion of tho railroad question without looking into tho extent and wealth of these vast corporations. Undor the iniluenco of pools and combines they abolish completely all competition and fix tho rates. They lovy all tribute on commcrco that tho articlo trans ported will bear short of prohibition. With tho power of money to corrupt, they use their money to purchase all legislation in their favor both stato and national, and they do not stop at this. They purohaso the decisions of tho courts both high and low; thoy still go further than this, by purchas ing tho iniluenco of citizens, high in position, to publish letters in the lead ing papers to justify their legalized robbery, whioh is groator than that of Sicily by Vcrris, that of Romo by Crassus, or that of tho Iudeas by Hastings, and not stopping at this, thoy purchaso tho most popular daily and weekly newspapers of the country and thoreby control public opinion politically and sooially. When wo consider one hundred and sixty thousand milos of railroad in tho United States, which is a greater length of mileage than all the railroadB in the balanco of tho world and when we consider that they oarry tho mate rial for more than one hundred and thirty billions of commerce annually and when wo Author tako into con sideration that tho tonago of this ono hundred aud sixty thousand miles of road is annually more than ono hun dred and seventy millions of tons more than all the tonage of all tho water navication of the entiro world, we can then form some just conception of the power, iniluenco aud wealth of the monstrous corporations. It is proper in this connection to look into ono moro orimo of tho cor porations Tho real oost of all theso ono hundred and sixty thousand miles of railroad is about two and ono half billion dollars, they havowattored this stock up to about nine billions, thus fixing, charging and collecting an outrageous freight upon moro than seven thousand millions of watered stock, independent of an exorbitant rate of freight charged upon tho actual capital investpd in tho roads. In order that tho reader may form so mo just conception of the abovo statement it will be propor for mo to mako reference to Poor'sManuel and the consus report of the United States for 1880; by doing so it will bo Been that prior to that dato and boforo tho corporations pooled their issues and consolidated their general interests, and at a timo when they wore corapoting with oach other as a business enterprise, that all the roads running west from Boston, New iork, Baltimore and 1'huadclphia, oharged, at thoir own will, ono cent a ton per milo on all through hauls and ono and a sixth for all short hauls. Tho consus roport for 1880 shows that the average freight rato for the Unitod States was less than one cont a ton per milo. They also show that the roads from St. Louis to Galveston prior to tho general combination, and whon sho was competing as a business transaction, only charged sevon tenths of a cent a ton per mile on a through haul from oity to city. Tho oonBus reports and Poor's Manuel show that at tho above datos, and tho abovo named rates 55 por oent of the gross earnings of theso roads was net profit. Thin most unquestionably settles the question as to whether ono cent a ton por mile is a paying rato or not. The most authoritative statistics show 45 per cont not on the gross earnings of tho principal Toxas roads, and these roads have their stock watered from 50 to 60 per cent., whilo many of tho roads in tho older states have their stook watered up to 80 and 85 per cent. Ono oompany in Now York when it cotnmenocd business was worth $150,000 and in a low years it was worth $200,000,000. For the purpose of moro fully portraying to tho people tho danger of the power of tho railroads and to show the neoossity of destrovinc this collossal power, I will refer to tho messago of Gov. Hogg. This is an ofiioial ddoument and no ono can question the correctness of the mattor contained in it. Ilo states that tho Texas roads contain moro than 450,000,000 of watered stock, and that thoy aro adding 40,000,000 of Hotitious stook annually for tho peo ple to pay dividonds on in every oommotclal transaction they make He estimates this to bo more than one half of all tho taxable property of tho stato inoluding tho value of the roads, and $33,000,000 more than all tho land values of tho ontiro stato. It is further eoen that Texas has given to her railroads in lands and other values moro than 40,000,000 aoros of land, and a largo amount of this land they till hold through fraud in transferring it from ono person to another so as to avoid alienating it until in many instances it has become very valuable Tho wholo amount of it has probably yielded them moro than $8 per aoro. In the light of tho above statements no ono can deny that tho Texas roadB havo roceived donations whioh were more than suflioiont to build and equip them. It might bo said the roads aro the gifts of tho people to tho corporations. It is a well known fact that they pool their interest with other corpora tions and clcot whom they please to fill tho various ofnccB from president down to bailiff, and diotato every lino of law, both national aud state, in their own intorest. A glanoc at the above statomont of woll-known laots will show that thoso corporations are more powerful than the government and the only way to savo tho government from being over thrown by theso corporations is for the government to own and operate tho roads in the intorcst of tho wholo pooplo. Tho framors of the St. Louis plat form demands would rob no one, nor would they confiscate ono dollar of pnvato or pubho property. Noithor would they interfero with tho rights of any oitizen or class of oitizons, but they would proteot tho people from corporations that havo usurped powers not delogated to thorn oithor by tho stato or tho constitution of the United States. By purchasing all tho roads in tho United States, not as private property, but as public property, reoognizing that the vatious compa nies only hold chartered rights in said roads. By referenco to tho testimony taken by tho oommittce of ways and means in oongress during the investigation of the interstate commerce bill. Tho ao tual oost of all tho roads is not moro than S2,s00,000,000 after eliminating tho watorrd stook from them. Ac cording to tho same testimony tho peoplo are paying moro than $000,- 000,000 annually in the shape of froights to pay dividends on this fic titious stook, besides paying a just rato on tho $2,500,000,000 of real cost. Now thero is moro than one plan by which tho government can purchaso and pay for the roads. Ono is to issue $2,500,000,000 of full legal tenders and pay the roads spot cash for the property. This would bo $850,000, 000 Iobs thnn $50 per capita, whioh amount every ono is now contending for as a necessary por capita circula tion. So ovory ono will sco that it will not get out the required volume of money. The present freight rates if continued tour years would bring back to tho govern ment the $2,500,000,000 paid for tho roads thoreforo tho government might reduoe tho present froight rates three- fourths and contmuo it for sixteen yoars and this would bring baok tho 2,500,000,000 the result would bo that the government would own tho roads and at the end of sixteen yoars would havo collected enough from freight to pay their entiro oost, and tho oost of operating them, and a corporation that threatens tho very existence of tho government and tho liborty of the pooplo would bo put out of oxistonoe. After this the govern ment oould run tho roads at tho oost of operating them, and if this gov ernment can do this as cheaply as other governments, and I think she can, wo will pay 30 ocntB for rfding 100 milos on a first class oar, and 50 oents for hauling a balo of cotton from Groesbeck to Galvoston, and everything else in proportion. These corporations, as everyono knows, has rode rough shod over every law to regulato thoir oharges and defy the states to intorforo in any way with thoir action to protect tho peoplo. Consequently tho only hopo is tho ownership of tho ToadB. Hospcotfully, J. D. Rankin. Notlco to Contractors.
