T-he iparty henchlmen otl ve bLath sides are struck witlh eounterntatio to at the monvemetnt, liecatlus it bodke Ino of good to them. It is the molley systemo that is running our people, mud both old pt parties avoid onlllmlg biefore the pvoll'e fth with that as an issue. for time reaMson that hI a system that could not stand for a muo- it mienlt without special laws to propl it up, ci ruhlid not answer f.r a political issue. at Stmiething to divide the farmlers is their at watch-word. They say the tariff needs e: more cussiug and di-emussintI. We will ml sa' for the beneilt of hirelings iti the old It parties, 3 on may howl the force bill until It your throats are ore, and wear out your It pre-ses, but you will not move any one r except the short haired women. The lr great question is not the n'gro ro robetm. I hilbut the motley lqueation. Mr. ('haste said ti that the national bauking syatum was the it greatest tiu-ancial mistake of his life, and e it, hould le repea!ed. To cotmtitlue his it language-"it has builtt up a monopoly ti whtluh alffcet every iuterest in the cut " it try."

You have the d dawn of that contest, and wo will ware I war as long as theme is a foot of land to f stand on, or an ear or a heart to appeal dI to. Mr. Lincoln, jut before hW death, in P replying to a gentletat fromn Iliuois on I the closing out of the war, said: As a I result of the war. corporations have beent enthroned, and an era of corruption in I high places will follow ..The money t powers of the connt' y wdl endeavor to i prolong its reign by working upon the i prujudiuces of the people." Mr. Garfield i maid: "Whoever controls the volume oa I money in any country is absolute ma ter I of all the country," and we say to you, I readers, we are gAlng to change things at t any cost. Mr. Jefferson said: "Our only resource, and an ample one f-ir any etnergency., i treasury notes, and bott"med on tales, and not indebtedness of the country." That is Jetft rsonian Demooracy. We could quote from Calhoun, Madl son, Adams, and a bost of otner., I ut what we have quote] w'l ufrmoe. The national banking system must go. We Swill say to the Cauoasianl that our under Sjaw will keep its plate, as it has for the Ity last twenty-two yeaUs, and feel as happy as we did aben voting for Urvely. We have as much right to vote th - negro iu our can'u ms when voting him for the so called D.Inoorat c party. Advice from W. fuo's ib somettmee good.

One of the fallacies that waitedl iS upln ats Ilrodulleeion in slhvery days was ly that the great staple cuald not be raised in- in equtaities that would supply the de to Intnd without slave labor.
