bers will not fail to do Just as they did in 1896 if conditions are similar. They would vote for a man like Bryan on a platform like that enunciated at Chicago or Kansas City, and desert their own candidate because the only object sought is to prevent legislation and administration in the sole inter est of the manufacturing, banking, and transportation corporations. . This Is the real issue between the two great parties a grand contest be .teen the manufacturing, banking and transportation interests on the one hand, represented by the republican party and its hordes of hoodwinked farmer and wage-worker followers; and on the other, a real democratic ivji vuuutiu, t,uv utvi nuu ixia v up its following chiefly the farmers, small business men, home-owners the " bone and sinew" of America. That there may be no doubt about there be irg a truly democratic party In the frid next year, the Denver conference was called. What will result mu?t necessarily depend upon the outcome of Mr. Bryan's fight to keep his party or. the course it began in 1896. Asso ciate Editor.) The Unspeakable Turk It is impossible to form any con clusion from the jumble of cablegrams what the outcome will be of the dis turbances In Macedonia and Bulgaria. The fact seems to be established that the Turks have been perpetrating hor rors that equal anything in all his tory. It is said that they have mur dered 60,000 men, women and children in cold blood. Still the powers have ta ken no action. The English gov eri'ment , was so crippled by the Boer war that it is not in a condition to make a stand. If the policy of Glad stone had been adopted years - ago there would have been no such cruel ties as are now being perpetrated. ' The latest dispatches indicate that Bulgaria will be forced to go to war as the powers refuse to enforce former treaties and thousands of Bulgarians , have already been slain. Their king, Ferdinand; ran - away and has been hiding in remote places, but the min isters have issued a manifesto to the powers giving an account of the atroci ties committed and declaring that the Turks intend; to invade their borders This thing may be patched up again a iid the Turk with 'his doctrine ot ii'ui'der.as.a means of -propagating his religion may be allowed to stay in Eu rope a while longer, but it will 'oniy be for a while. The indignation of the civilized world will finally crush him. THE VALUE OF CHAKCOAL. Few People Know How Useful it is in Per. serving Health and Beauty. . Nearly everytody knows that char coal is me safest and most efficient. tl:tinfectant and purifier in nature, but few realize its value when taen into the human system for the same cleans lug purpose. Charcoal is a remedy that the more ou take of it tn abetter; It is not a drug at all, but simply absorbs the fcases and imparities always present ir. the stomac and intestines and car ries them out of the system. Charcoal sweetens the breath after smoning, drinking or after eating onions and othn: oaorous vegetableo. Charcoal effectually Hears and jtn proves the complexion, It whitens the tteth and further acts as a natural ai)d eminently safe cathartic. It absorbs the injurious gases which ccilect in the stomach and bowels; It disinfects the irouth and throat from the poison of catarrh. All druggists sell charcoai In one fcrm or another, but probably the best charcoal and the most for the money i:' in Stuart's Absorbent Lozenges r tbey are composed of the finest pow dered Willow charcoal, and othr harmless antiseptics in tablet form or rather In the fcrm of large, pleasant tasting lozenges, the charcoal being mixed with honey. The daily use of these lozenges will soon tell In a much Improved condi tion of the general health, better com plexion, sweeter breath and purpr blood, and the beauty of it is, that do possible harm can result from their rnntiniiflft 'use. but nn Ihs mntraro great, benefit . ,- A Buffalo physician-In speaking of the benefits of charcoal, says "I ad vise Stuart's Absorbent Lozenges to .ell patients 8uff"-lng from fjas In the etomach and bowels, and to clear the complexion and purify the breath mouth and throat; I also believe the liver Is greatly benefited by the dail Mr use of them; th cost but 25 cents a box at drug stores, and although in some sens a patent preparation, yet I believe I get more and better charcoal in Stuart's Absc-bent Lozenges than in any of the ordinary charcoal tablets." lata mm mm m mm m VULI5 TO UULLfclS Mr. -" Btlleraa VaJu. cmn b Mx "'. yraaMd Oatl ia CoacrcU Uaita of Yalaabl Thlaf Editor Independent: A friend has handed me a copy of your August 27th issue, and I find In it 'many com nundable features. I appreciate what you say editorially on page 16 about agreeing with Del Mar that "no metal can measure value with equity," and also that you "holdly firmly to the pcpulist theory of money" and insist that money only can measure. value. I have not Del Mar's "Monetary Crimes," but have several populist authorities on money. They all agree that the dollar is an idea, first formed by association with a tangible thing, from which it is afterwards disso ciated, and taki pride in declaring "money a creation of . law." Their plan is for the government to issue (in exchange for labor and supplies) money which it -will redeem by ac cepting (in lieu of commodities) for taxes. . Now, if we, assume that government pays fl for a certain article (or the labor sufficient to produce that article) and that dollar is the first creation of money by law, its value is in the article. We say "value of the dollar," tut we mean the valuable thing It pro cured, and we expect all subsequent ddlars thus issued, or paid out, to procure as nearly as human equity can decide the same amount of com modity value. We also expect the government - to appraise our varied products by the same unit of value, and to pay our taxes by selling com modities at the appraised valuation. I am glad you do not ignore "his tory, law and practical politics," but propose to reform "it" (?) in the in terest of the people. Very well. There is room for reform, but It must be done without ignoring facts.' Value can only be expressed with "precision and equity" in concrete units of r, valuable thing. ' The formula Is "A h worth B," or "any amount of any thing is worth a certain amount ot something else." If a referendum vote could be taken I believe the commod ity unit would be almost unanimously sustained. At any rate, why not drop the contention and unite on a platform demanding the referendum and the i -sue of money by direct loans instead of by expenditures or -loans through banks .and leave the "unit" as it is for the present? C. E. REEVES. Perry, Okla. - ' (By parity for reasoning a volt can only be expressed, with precision and equity in "concrete units of an electri fied thing." The force of demand may bi likened to the force of electricity; but the force of demand is not "val ue" any more than the force of elec tricity Is a "volt." For purposes of ex pressing the intensity of the force of electricity the word "volt" has been adopted, the word being derived from the name of an eminent Italian elec trician, Alessandro Volta. Technical ly a "volt" is the "electro-motive force which produces a current of one ampere in a circuit having a resist ance of one ohm, and Is about one tenth less than the electro-motive force of a Daniell's sulphate of copper cell." Hence, the word "volt" is a device adopted as the unit of electro-motive force. No one knows, or cares, for that matter, the absolute intensity of electro-jnotive force evmbolized hv the word "volt" Neither does anv one 1-cow, or care, how many "volts" of eiectro-motlve force there are in the universe. But by use of delicate nhv ica! - appliances . and the use of the word "volt" , symbolizing the chosen unit oi eiectro-motlve force, and use of the numerals, it is possible to "measure" electricity and to exnress it words and figures the result of that rrfasurement. .-, Now, in the struggle among men ta oDtam or to retain the individual nos xesjon of things capable of being used by man for his enlovment i f-.rce arises comparable to electricity. "Dollar" in our monetary system is the device which corresnonds to the word "volt" in electrical measure ment It Is a word adopted to symbol ize the unit of the force of demand. Technically, today, the unit is the quantity of the force of demand acting ?:pon 25.8 grains of gold, nine-tenths fine but not coined under our pres ent laws. No one knows, or cares, the absolute intensity of the force of de mand symbolized by the word "dol lar." Neither does any one know, or care, how many "dollars" of force of demand there are in the world. "But hfre the analogy cease for want of a physical appliance by means of which to accurately "measure" the auantitv of the force of demand acting upon a given article of wealth at a given time and place. Each purchaser and each seller must use his own brain as that appliance.

That was a "concrete unit' which could be dispensed with. How ever, when taxes became due or a judgment was to be satisfied, it was a concrete necessity because the stat utes made it so. Ed.
