conference, or several of them, Bay (a) A conference at Washington, D. C, for the eastern and " middle states. (b) A conference at Chicago . for such states as Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Missouri, etc. . (c) A conference at Denver for Minnesota, Iowa, Kansas, and Ne 1 bras'.ca. (d) A conference in the mountain states. (e) A conference for the Pacific states. . (f) A conference' for the southern states at Atlanta. These could be re arranged. This would lessen the expenses and get up larger crowds. It would test the old members of the party, These conferences should be held not later than March. I know it is easy to make suggestions, but . I do my best. The name "people's party" is good enough; and yet, another name might bo adopted, one that would take 'in the name "American'' would be a good one, or how would "union party" suit? J. II. STEVENSON. Pittsburg,. Pa, NEW HAMPSHIRE. Editor Independent: I never knew the political and social situation in just such a condition as it is now. It is evident the trust and machine re publicans in the.Benate propose to get rid of Roosevelt. If he can be de feated for the nomination he will be; If not, they will defeat him if a demo crat is nominated, half way favorable to them. The failure of the extra session, investigation of General Wood's case, and many other things show it. The reorganizera will control the democratic convention, but the pop ulist and democratic rank and file will not feel kindly to their nominee; and all the subsidized press can do will not make him a popular candidate. Now, fhe populists and true demo crats have it in their power to con trol results, but just the way to do it at present is more than can be fore seen. It is my personal opinion, that if it was possible (when the break comes between Roosevelt and the leaders) for the populists and true democrats to sustain him to a man, we should swing into a condition embodying more real true democracy than in any other way. I know Roosevelt lacks discretion, has insulted Miles, antagonized the south, etc.; but he is just the man for such a coup he is certainly pop ular with the masses at the north and west. , If a, trust tool is . elected- in 1904, a republican form of govern ment will soon be a thing of the past. . ; I think it impossible to form a peo- Six Books For The Sick.

New Hampshire democracy is about as dead as the people's' party here, and the railroad and republican machines are just running things.. I believe in the honesty' and pa triotism of. the populists and. the true democracy; and I think such men as Towne, Bryan, Allen; Judge Clark of North Carolina, and others should get together and we should follow them. I expect when Bryan returns from Europe he will have something to say, and thousands think him a great leader yet. AN. II. POPULIST. TENNESSEE. Editor Independent: In Tennessee there are still a few hjundred populists who have never affiliated with either the democratic or republican parties, but at least four-fifths have gone back into the democratic party as a re sult of the fusion on Bryan in 189G. In 1900 Barker, populist, received 1, 322 votes in Tennessee, most of whom are still in the' populist ranks. I do not believe that many of those affiliating with the democratic party in this state or in any other southern state will enter again the populist ranks under existing racial conditions.

"Again, the opinion among many farmers in this state is that the sin gle tax idea is gradually getting a hold in the people's party and this is keeping them out of . the populist ranks;, for nine-tenths of the farmers of. the south are bitterly opposed to placing all taxes on the lands and let ting billions of wealth in stocks, bonds, money, etc., to share none of the burdens of government. Should, however, the people's paity in convention make a platform steer ing clear of single tax and socialism in its extreme sense and sticking close lj io the fundamental principles of the party enunciated at its birth, declare eternally against any kind of fusion, there would be a considerable number of former populists in Tennessee who would again vote and work for the ticket. Of course, much depends on what the democrats do In their next convention as to candidate and plat form. It looks now as if Roosevelt will be nominated by the republicans and Judge Parker by the democrats. - j. h. Mcdowell; Union City, Tenn. tate dealer: chairman county com. E. A.

Nearly' everylody knows that char coal is tne safest and most efficient disinfectant and purifier In nature, but few realize its value when taken. into the human system for the same cleans ing purpose. Charcoal is a remedy that the moro ou take of it tn better; it is not a drug at all, but simply absorbs-tho cases and impurities alway present ir. the stoma . and 4ntestines and car ries them out of the system. ' Charcoal sweetens the breath after Emoking, drinking or after eating onions and oth-e odorous vegetables. ' Charcoal effectually clears and im proves the complexion, it whitens th Ueth and further acts as a natural and eminently safe cathartic -It absorbs the Injurious gases which collect in the stomach and bowels; it disinfects the routh and throat from the poison of catarrh. , All druggists sell charcoal in one fcrm or another, but probably th? best charcoal and the most for the money i In Stuart's Absorbent Lozengrg; ibey are composed of the finest pow dered Willow charcoal, and othr lurmless antiseptics In tablet form or rather in the ftrm of large, pleasant tasting lozenges, the charcoal being mixed with honsy. The daily use of these lozenges will soon tell in a much improved condi tion of the general nealtn. better com plexlon, sweeter breath atd purer blood, and the beauty of it is. that no possible harm can result from their continued use, but on the contrary, great benefit A Buffalo physician In speaking of tLe benefits of c' arooal, says- " ad vise Stuart's Absorbent Lozenges to ill patients suff"-infe from ias in th ttomach and bowels, and to clear the complexion and purify the breath, mouth and throat; I also believe the liver is greatly benefited by the daily use of them; th cost but 25 cents a box at drug stores, and although in some sense a patsnt preparation yet I believe I get mow and bPtter charcoal In Stuart's Abac-bnt Lozenge, than In any of the ordinary charcoal tablets." the "boys in blue" Co.

Langdon, Waukomis; Okla.: I am as strong in the faith as ever. believing firmly In the justice of pop ulist principles, and am ready to go on with the battles for those prin ciples. Enroll me as one of the Old Guard." S. M. Harvey, East Des Moines, la.: "Yes, indeed, I wish to be numbered with the faithful Old Guard, and will ever be found doing all that I can for the cause of right. It Is pleasant to think of the noble stand taken at Denver. ... I firmly believe that we are on the right road now. Have felt for some time that the populists should make a determined strike." G. W. Walters, San Saba., Tex.: I can say in all honesty that I am as strong as ever in the faith of populist principles; as true democracy, I still believe in the justice and true pa triotism of those principles, and am at all times ready to go on with the battles for them. They are the foun dation and source of American liber ty and free government, securing to all citizens equal rights and special privileges to none. Government alone must coin all money, of whatsoever material gold, silver, or paper and regulate its value. It must own and operate the great corporate utilities as it docs the United States mall matter one of tho biggest business Institutions of the government. Gen eral Jackson was a democrat in his day and so was Thomas Jefferson; They advocated the populist pi In fiplea of today, mainly, and now tho latter-day democrats condemn and slur the Jackson and Jefferson demo crats and denounce them. ...
