To the National Committee of the People's Party of the United States: Inasmuch as political events seem , to be taking form and are shaping themselves for the next presidential campaign, we be lieve that the course of the people's party should be defined. Therefore acting upon the earnest demands o? members of the national committee and state committees, we have con cluded to convene the national com mittee for considering all matters of interest comirj before it The reason for fixing the time and : place herein named, is that on the 27th of July, the great conference is to be held at Den ver, Colo., consisting of representa tives of the reform forces of the coun try and looking to a union of the seme. In the past some differences in po litical policies have arisen and for a time tended toward a division of the people's party, but conditions have changed and it now seems that there is no reason for the existence of two organizations. We believe this to be an opportune time to remove every impediment that prevents , men who hold the same principles from acting ir. unison. We stand for blending their efforts in one concerted action and be lieve this should be the war cry from ocean to ocean: UNION OF THE RE FORM FORCES OF THE NATION, rarching under one banner with one official head. With an united army we will wage war upon evil and wrong. The people's party presents its dec laration of principles first made at Omaha and afterwards on other occa sions as a rallying point for all who desire to bring about a government for the people, by the people, and who de sire the overthrow of the gigantic trusts that are threatening the exist ence of the republic. With the people's party united as it will be and with the democratic and republican parties divided as they are sure to be, there will be found wait ing many hundred thousands, yes, millions, of the best citizens of this country who are willing to join forces in an attempt to reform abuses that ere fast becoming unbearable. ? As abuses of every class and char acter is becoming concentrated by the trusts in the hands of a few, the peo ple begin to feel the effect and -realize that trusts are preying upon the earnings of the masses and taking from the people the wealth they cre ate. As vice chairman of the national committee of the people's party I had hoped that Hon. Marion Butler would issue a call for the national committee tc meet at the same time as this con ference and have waited to this late date, but having just received his let ter stating that he preferred to take a leferendum vote of the committee to ascertain whether a committee meet ing should be called, and knowing that that would make it in-possible to reach the committee itf time to at tend the conference, and being im pressed with the. great importance of this meeting as well as with the very urgent demands from national and state committeemen, I have concluded to i3sue a call for a meeting of the na tional committee. At the last meeting of the national committee a resolution was passed au thorizing me as vice chairman of the national committee to convene the committee when ir. the judgment of a reasonable number of the committee it would be for the best interest of the party. It is my earnest desire that it shall be understood by the committee and all members of the party that in con vening the committee I am acting upon the advice of a large number of the members of the committee as well as being governed by the resolution out lining my duties, and sincerely 'trust that this action will meet with the ap proval of all and result in great good. Therefore as vice chairman of the national committee of the people's party I hereby request that all mem bers of the national committee of the people's party and as many members of the party as possible, meet at Den ver, Colo., July 29, 1903, for the pur pose of considering all matters of in terest to the party that may come be fore it The place, of meeting will b9 determined at that time. J. H. EDMISTEN, Vice Chairman. J. A. EDGERTON, Secretary. The executive committee of the peo ple's party is requested to meet at the same time and place. J. H. EDMISTEN, Vice CMUrman. J. A.
