Nuts for Laboring Men.
While the products of the mints are
always desirable, there can be no de
nying the fact that its mills and not
mints that will place the United States
in a prosperous condition again, reason
from whatever standpoint you will.
If the laboring men of this country
have any idea of supporting the Demo
cratic party because it has a popular
drawing card in which there is not a
scintilla of reality, but a mere snare
and delusion, the following figures ta
ken from a report from a union trade
journal as to the number of idle men
now in this country, and especially the
larger cities, may be of interest to
them: ::In Boston 10,000 laborers are
out of work; in Worcester 7,00 are un
employed; in New Haven, 7,00; in
Providence, 9,000; in New York city,
100,000; Utica is a small city, but the
unemployed number 16,000: in Patter
son, N. J., one-half the people are idle;
in Philadelphia, 15,000; 10,000 in Bal
timore; 3,000 in Wheeling: 6,000 in
Cincinnati; 8,000 in Cleveland; 4,000
in Columbus; 5.000 in Indianapolis;
2,500 in Terre Haute; 200,000 in Chica
go; 25,00 in Detroit; 20,00 in Milwau
kee; G,OOO in Minneapolis; Vicksburg,
1,000; St. Louis, 80,000; St. Joseph.
2,000; Omaha, 2,000; Butte City,
Mont, 5,000; 15,000 in San Francisco.
It was not the gold standard bugbear
nor sound money maintenance, nor the
free and unlimited 16 to 1 free coinage
agitation that is responsible for so
many idle men, but it was the crime of
1893, w Then a Democratic congress
struck down not only half of our in
dustries, but all of them. The indus
trial smokestacks are not in use, and
that accounts for so many idle men.
The tampering and tinkering with the
tariff has placed our goods in such a
condition that we have no markets for
them, and this chief of all has caused
this great horde and army of idiers
throughout the United States. Under
such circumstances, certainly the labor
ing men of this country cannot afford
to support the Democratic party, who
will continue the same ruinous free
trade policy . McKinley has well said
that it's better to open up the factories
and mills rather than the mmts 4 _as_
the latteP^fefild be in the interest of a
few, while the former will benefit the
entire nation, and more especially the
wage earners.
Fawcett intimates that he will hold
the office of mayor even if it takes
armed force to do it. What anarchist
could say more? He is now mayor
through fraud and corruption and he
proposes to continue through violence,
the courts to the contrary notwith
standing. Senator Squire, that's the
way thinks are run in your new-found
political Eldorado. The Haymarket

Pennoyer have all had similar experi

will some one tell what kind of bed

Tim Healy is said to be on the rise
politically in London. Weil, he would
not be Tim Healy if he was not. Pat
and Tim are always on the political
rise, whether in London, America or
anywhere else. The characteristic
trait of all of Erin's sons is to get office
and they get them.
A woman has been named in Wyo
ming as a McKinley elector. Hungry
babies and idle husbands tramping day
after day in search of work, which was
not to be found, is proof positive to the
women that McKinley, protection and
sound money will restore the United
States to its once prosperous state.
It's the crime of 1893 and not 1873 that
affects the women.
"I believe it is a good deal better to
open up the mills of the United States
to the labor of America than to open
up the mints of the United States to
the silver of the world."—Maj. Mc-
Kinley to his'old comrades. The labor
ing men all over this country heartily
agree with you, major.
The coachman that found and re
turned Mrs. Bryan's wedding ring may
now think he has a cinch on pulling
the White Hbttse ribbons next year, but
if that eoabhman wants to be certain
of a iob he had better find a McKinlej
protection button and suport it next
The city council of New Orleans has

PaWefs'^AllianceL which beg??? in a
way in Texas in 1879, and reached
1,000, members ten years later. i This
body and several agricultural and in- !
dustrial bodies, met in St. Louis'' seven \
years ago, and the result of the confer
ences and organizations and discussions '
was t#s People's party, which "was for
mally launched by 1,347 delegates in
Omaha on the 4th of July, 1892. The
ticket nominated was James B. Weaver
of lowa, and James G. Field of Vir
ginia,, and it; received 1,041,028 votes,
carrying the states of Colorado, Idaho,
Kansas, Nevada and North Dakota,
with their twenty-two electoral votes.
In addition, the party elected five Uni
ted States senators and eleven repre
sentatives. :In the states we have
named the-Democrats ran/ no electoral
tickets, but threw their strength to the
Populists, little dreaming that four
years, later the Populists would capture
their party organization and dictate its

Crime of 1893 vs. Crime of 1873. j
Did the codification of coinage laws
in 1873 produce the panic of 1893? Was
not the panic of 1893 the result of Dem
ocratic triumph in 1892? Was not the
fear of what the Democrats would do
more than realized? Were not the
good times under the McKinley law
succeeded by hard times under a Demo
cratic law? ;
The people want to . hear from Mr.
Bryan on this point. . He has rung the
changes on»the silver question and has
said nothing new in the last six weeks.
Here is a subject that will be compara
tively new to him. Is he afraid of it?
Is he afraid to answer questions as to
tariff legislation which he promised the
people, would,do so much for them?
The people know all that Mr. Bryan
knows on the silver question. They
would ' like to know how much he
knows about the real causes of the
present troubles. They charge him
with being a party to "the crime of
1894," and they are ready to submit
the evidence. Why does he evade the
issue? —Inter Ocean.
Seventy-Six is wrong when it al
leges that Judge McGilvra is not with
the people. The judge tried to make
people out of the Seventy-Six gang,
but finding it impossible he gave it up
in utter disgust and is only too glad to
get back among the ferae people.

A white man outraged a 5-year-old
white child in Mobile, Ala., a few days
ago and did not pass himself off as a
Negro. Raping children must be be

white men refuse to shift the crime on

At a political convention down in
Indian territory the other day two
men were killed as a result of a bitter
fight over nominations. Death to
white men seems preferable to losing
the hope of getting an office.
If Charlie Fishback stands in the
middle of the road holding a Bryan-
Altgeld-anarchistic flag expecting
"principle" to come that way, he will
be sadly left. "Principle" does not
keep that kind of company.
A paper edited in the interest of
women asks: "Up to the present time
what has man done that woman could

prosperous nation with Democratic
rule and killed it.
The Christians are reported leaving
Candia, in Crete, in large numbers.
Being murdered by the Turks, how

If Senator Squire intends to buy up
the entire legislature, as it is now cur
rently reported, he will better increase
his recent $43,000 loan to a $143,000.
There is not much doubt but the in

Woman Suffrage in AusS§[[ia.
Some interesting details are given in
the Australasian/ Review of: Reviews
concerning the recent general elections
in South Australia. The occasion was
the first time that : women there exer
cised the franchise, and, if any doubt
existed as t*> whether women them
selves desu^d to be clothed with the
i functions of a complete citizenship, the
ballot box^s were a final answer to
that doubt. The rolls included 77,464
mal*va.iults and 59,066 women voters;
the act of voting for South Australian
women was, of course, new and
strange, yet they voted in solid bat
talions and, as the small number of in
formal votes showed, with signal intel
ligence; and the percentage of voting
among women voters was quite as high
'as that of the stronger sex. The women
of South 'Australia, in a word, take the
franchise quite seriously.
Gen. Sickles to G. A. R. Men.
Gen. Sickles says:. "The title of
I American is dearer than that of Re
publican or Democrat, and is alone
worthy of true men in emergencies like
those of 1861 and 1896.
"It seems if ever there was a time
when the veterans of the late war
should stand shoulder to shoulder, re
gardless of parties, it is now. The plat
form adopted at Chicago is in many re
spects unsafe and unpatriotic. It is a
stab at organized government, and bor
ders so strongly on anarchy as to cause
all good citizens to pause and think:
■ What are we coming to when a promi
nent party. will endorse such princi
ples? lam heartily in favor of any or
ganization that will assist in defeating
such a monstrosity called a 'declara
tion of principles.' "

each session of the . Pierce County
Teachers' Institute, held in Tacoma, in
which to uphold and instruct in the
teaching of "Scientific Temperance"

in the school curriculum of our state.
Many experiments were given showing

common medicines found in nearly ev

She has been working very hard of
late getting her text book on "Mercy"
ready for the publishers. The teachers
generally showed great interest in her

minutes without wetting your hands. A»3
