The jwr quhUy withdrew, i THE HOUR HAI COMB The conclusion arrived at by many eminent men, as the editor of The Independent has learned from con versation and interviews with them both In the east and the west, is that reform can never be effected under bi party government as it has heretofore existed in the United States. This is the only free government in the world that adheres to the bi-party sys tem. In the congress of the United States every member in the house and senate belongs to one of two parties. In England, Germany, Italy, France and Austria-Hungary, the members of the parliamentaiy bodies belong to several different parties. These men say that while the demo cratic party in this country should be the reform party and while there are moremen members of it who earnest ly desire reform than any other party they are utterly helpless. If by any miracle of eloquence or otherwise, Bryan should gain control of the democratic national convention, no man denies that the Cleveland men would not bolt just as they did in 1896 and 1900. . If Cleveland should control it, it is just as. certain that the Bryan democrats would not sup port the .ticket. That condition of af fairs makeo the democratic patty in capable of accomplishing anything, and hundreds of thousands of men are "ready to forsake it who have fol lowed its fortunes for a lifetime. ' In the republican party the same condition, though not so pronounced, also exists. Large numbers of men in that party, Loth in the east and the west, are disgusted with trusts and exorbitant tariff rates. This class of "republicans have able representatives both in the east and the west. No man .seriously believes that any etfec tive measures . can - ever be enacted against high tariffs or the trusts by means of the republican party. Re formers in both , the democratic and republican parties have expressed themselves to the editor of The Irider pendent as seeing no hope for better government as long as the present condition of bi-party government ex-ists-, '- '- : " ;v ' - f- - One. of thp most, distinguished men in New York city said to the, editor of The Independent ths other day: "With two parties, as they now ex ist,: the financial and tariff interest will continue to rule indefinitely. ' If one party makes a campaign for a reduction of the tariff and elects a majority of congress, it will aiways be found that there will be enough members of the majority who.will not vote for a reduction, to defeat any such legislation, so it will be upon any other vital question. That was tha' case in 1892. The Wilson tariff bill as it finally pas?ed congress was the' highest 'protective bill ever en acted up to that time. The hbur has come for the organization, of an in dependent party. That is the only way in which the schemes of the trusts, promoters, and tariff grabbers can be defeated. I have taken a somewhat active part in political mat ters for twenty . ycar3. But 1 have quit. I will no longer spend my time any money Jn hopeless efforts to get legislation through either of the par ties. If an Independent party with the right kind of a platform was put In the Dejd, I would be willing to give what assistance I could to aid that Kind of a movement." Undoubtedly "the hour has come" for th organization of art Indepen dent party which will not amiiato with cUhrr of th ethev c!J parties.

They were look ing forward to a chance to get their 16 or 20, per cent. Cuba has just issued her first lot of bonds through the banking house of Speyer & Co., New York. That house ' takes $35, OOC.OOO at 90. That is to say the pur chasers of these bonds will get 16 per cent interest, the first year and 6 per cent afterwards. ; The eity of Havana is to put out 128,000,000 more. These will be. sold below 90 and the rate of interest will be higher. Now here is Cuba; which is about the size of the state of Nebraska, and not more pro ductive, saddled with $P3,000,000 of bonds. A good many men in Ne braska are raging around like a Texas steer on a stampede because the re publicans have run up the debt of the state to two and a quarter mil lions. What would they say at a $63, 000,000 debt just as a starter? It is the American money that has got this, hold, on Cuba. The people of that island will toil for the benefit of the New York millionaires for the next century or two and the fruits of their toil will go to add to the ac cumulations of the twenty men down there who rule us with such an iron hand.

Many of them have been suc cessful In cities, towns or counties. Every one of these successes have been gained by advocating people's party principles. The successes In San Francisco, Detroit, Cleveland, and many eastern cities have each and all btn maue possible by advocating lo yally distinctive populist programs.

BERRY Seed Company Box 18 Clarinda, Iowa i-4cl 1 .11 m i m i s: There were t!ie two tickets in the field, the democratic and republican, and in a few instances another choice as to the prohibition party. The as saults on corporations owning city utilities have all been made on the -populist principle of public owner ship and where a victory has been gained, it was a populist victory m. fact, though the organization that won It was .known by sortie other name. . !' - ; "'i-: From every part of th .Unioii J;here has grown up in the (. last few years a demand for a national organization, bringing all the independent parties into action wider one name and as" parts of one organization. This was ; made possible by the action at St. Louis. Adding to the agrjcultuial vote, which has always been populist, the scattered irdependent parties m the cities, who have been advocat ing populist principles, and there are not less than 2,500,000 of them. That is the number of populist votes we have to start out wit'j. There are more than 100,000 straight pcpulist votes in the- state of New York alone, who have proved themselves to be populists by, voting with the literal democrats and other independent or ganizations which advocated populist principles. The disgust among the common peo ple against the rule of the rich for their own benefit is shown in the re publican party as well as in the demo cratic party. Several large cities where there have been republican ma jorities of many thousands have been wrenched from the control of that party by an uprising. Just at present Milwaukee is attracting attention. That city has always had a republi can majority of from 3,000 to 10,000, but now they say the party has no chanco to elect Its city ticket at all. There Is an uprising the ro against tho rule of corporations and machine RiAft. Tho fight that will l made will be upon distinct populist prin ciples. All these kind of voters will find a home in th people's party after the nest national convention at tfprlnMd. III., to bo held on the Fourth of July next.
