' r .: , J " J f 1 cnce to a second term in the white house, . ; ' ' ; I believe that, if thi3 is done, our victory will be this year, which pre sents to the people an opportunity to grasp their government and paralyze the brigands who are organized (in corporated) and consolidated -to de stroy, us. . ., I regard this as the paramount issue: - The people against the trusts; . The republic against the empire. ; Truth against "Fictions of Law." ; Manhood against money.' Democracy against plutocracy. Let the flash of conviction like lightning from the east to west il luminating the whole heaven, convince the people of their just and lawful op portunity to divide their enemies and to unite themselves. The result would be a triumphant and irresistible return of ninety per cent of the presidential vote for the electors ef Watson and Tibbies, Why 'postpone our -victory? Why separate our forces? Why not unite as our sturdy forefathers did and resume the ascendant. - . No free citizen , "belongs" to any party. Things, not names, are the sub jects of reason. Truth makes us free and only slaves accept a lie. Deception, corruption, deceit, venality instead of welding the chain of party , breaks it into its component links. These fly I together in another concentration and become the mighty force which binds voluntarily defeated interests into a great army of voters who speak, and it is done; who command, and it holdeth fast. ' What we ought to do we can do, What we ought and can do, will we not do now in 1904, for now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation! Pro crastination is time s thief, delay is dangerous. Let the whole people again rally as one, and again roll back the discomfited legions- of artinciahsm and slavery. My dear Mr. Watson, you have now read the sincere views of an American citizen. My reminiscences extend back to an early period and I have seen great upheavals. I have never seen one yet which. did not arise suddenly and I am not one to procrastinate a blow in the right direction. Individuals vote. Individuals are free to vote. - The majority of individuals in this reat republic are interested, con sciously or not in your election. ' The democratic party is defunct. . The. republican party is moribund. The people's party never dies and will prevail. Why not now? Yours in the bonds of good citizenship, . . , . -R. S, THAIiINi 1229 Pa. Ave., N. W., Washington, D. C. Y ... . , v VOTE THE TICKET v We sometimes hear populists r say that "they do not know just what to do In the coming election, and not Infre quently end up by saying they guess they will vote for Roosevelt as he will be elected anyhow and they will have the satisfaction of voting for the successful candidate. u ; ;.JLi If eyer there was a time when every intelligent populist should Vote the ticket, it is at the coming election. What possible excuse any well in formed populist can have to give his support to 'Roosevelt Is something be yond this pop to figure out. He stands for all. the republican party stands for and representes;, He glories in the past history of his party, and ; adheres , to the very ideas which caused thousands of honest republicans to leave the par ty and Join in the organization of .the populist party. ; ' , J. ' . . As1 the candidate of 'the republican party, Roosevelt stands for, the single gold .standard. ,. He stands for national banks of jiissue. He' stands for asset currency.'! Hj stands for private own ership of public utilities. He1 stands for a continuation of the conditions hlch have fostered the growth of the giant trusts. 'He pledges nd relief from alien.! land monopoly. In fact he stands for every thing against which populism is an organized protest. There is not a glimmer of hope for my reform for which the populist party stands, to, be brought about if the re publican party is continued in power. It Is satisfied with present conditions and has flung its banner to the breeze with the Inspiring motto "stand pat," Ttun in the name of all that is rea sonable and sensible why should any pcpulist vote for Roosevelt? Populists have grown Into the habit of voting for a presidential candidate who was not a populist, but who in some measure stond for at least some of the principles of populism, and now Aii this election some of them seem to think they are ... compelled to choose between the democratic and republican tickets, and they prefer the republican. If that were true there might be some reason for a populist to be a little at sea as to how. he would vote, in as much as both the democratic and re publican parties stand for exaetly the same things, and it becomes only a matter of choosing between them as to whether the democrats shall have a chance to get at the public crib for while. In tho struggle between these two parties populists should really have little interest. Hut populists do not have to choose between these two par ties. Tbey have a platform and can didates of theid own for which to vote, and it Is only by voting for these can didates and supporting these principles that they can ever hope to win the victory for: which we have been fight ing since 1892. s ; Populists have no reason to be at all discouraged. "Their principles have made vast progress sinrie their first enunciation at Omaha in 1892, They have grown so much in the public favor that" if every man in the nation who favors the government ownership of railroads would vote for the plat form and principles of the Springfield convention they would be overwhelm ingly 'elected. If all the people who are opposed to national banks of issue and asset currency and the single gold standard would vote for Watson and Tibbies they 'Would undoubtedly be elected. But there are so many, people who: place party before principle that' they are ready to aecept any kind of a dose the party leaders may mix up for them. "' .;'!"' .; ,. : ; Eyen some well-informed populists who have been voting for Mr. Bryan talk of following him still to the ex tent '. of voting for a "dishonest - plat form" and a candidate who gained his nomination by "dishonest methods" and whom no "self respecting' demo crat can support" " There Is no room for a doubt as to how every poppltet should vote. Our platform is all' right and in; plain language1 sets forth" the principles of populism. f Our candidates are clean and able and stand on the platform. Then let every populist do his duty and : vote the ticket. Three million votes for our ticket this fall would mean a populisi triumph in 1908. . With, a state debt continually grow ing, and taxation on the Increase no populist in Nebraska will be so fool ish as to stay away from the polls and thereby agree that the "redeemers" shall continue to pile up the. burdens upon the people of the state; We have nominated Clean, capable men, pledged to economical state government and a lessening of the tax burdens. A ma jority of the ; voters are In favor of their election., Let every populist go to the polls and express . that prefer ence by voting the ticket. A vote for the populist electors is a vote In favor. of government owner ship of railroads, telegraphs and other public utilities. It Is a vote for gov ernment money. It is a vote against land monopoly. It is a vote against the tiusts. Vote they ticket. A voU for Bcrgo and the state ticket is a vote for more economical state government It Is a vote for equal taxation and a lowering of the tax burdens. It is a vote against corpo rate domlnition in tdato politics and sute legislation. Vole the ticket. ' W. A. rOVNTEU.

If midgets could be rained down at the proper season to produce our wealth without cost to us, would, it hurt usr Let us have natural trade and immigration and trust to nature for results. Man's meddling with natural laws only mars the symmetry and beamy of nature. It is said that the Chinaman lays up his wages and takes It back to China. What if he does we have the wealth he produced in exchange. If he worked for half wages, we got a Dargam ana should not, complain. The masses of the people continue -to ; complain of oppression,, and well they may; but they have not found a metnod to elim inate IL. The trouble cannot be cured by more legislation, but by less. By repealing laws instead of making more. Repeal the tariff repeal tax ation of . wealth; repeat our monetary system and - give us free banking or government money; repeal our im migration laws get - back to nature, btop paying Interest , on bonds, held on our country by foreigners; stop paying dividends on stocks held by foreigners; stop paying rents on lands in this country owned by foreigners. The balance of trade against us (erroneously called in our favor) has been for several years about half a billion dollars. If the balance was in corn alone, it would take a train about 1,400 miles long to carry it, and it would certainly impoverish our coun try of its rich soil if kept, up. Now, with all our excess of exports over imports, amounting to $5,000,000,000 worth of wealth since 1873. a very little if any more gold and silver have been exported than has been imported. The only way I can tnink it pos sible for our country to so impoverish itself by ; sending away $3,000,000,000 worth more of wealth than it gets back in exchange, is ny ways above mentioned. Lord Sculley, as I mentioned in a previous letter, takes from one farm in Illinois nearly hair a million dol lars, and he has a whole township Improved farm In Kansas, and one In Minnesota, and all together 3,000,000 acres In this country; and other foreigners have about 30,000.000 acres besides valuable lands In cities. One of the Astors takes annually to Eng land rents from New York city of $3,000,000. A lady In England takes, from PitLst urtf. .$200,000 a year rent for leased land on which manufac tories stand. Queen Victoria had In vestment la New York city, and all the rent on lamln, dividends on stocks, Internet on U-tuU ownnl by foreigner ar paid In products In wealth that never come back to thU country, and yri peopln peak of the balance of trade In our favor.

Eng lishmen own the greatest part.of. the stock In the great Illinois Central railroad system of . this country, be- nesses. England has 'had comparative free trade" with . all the outside world and has always paid the highest wages of any country in Europe. If we had free i trade and others, could sell to us cheaper tnan we can make things for ourselves and we were able to buy, say at; one-tenth of what we now pay, If all cruisers and jiavies of the world were turned into trans port merchantmen j they could not bring goods here to supply 10 per cent of our demand. What objection should we " have to their, dumping wealth onto lis for., nothing, or half nothing, or,- one-fourth nothing, or even one-tenth nothing? Why should we fear cheap. goods ?. Why should we bar out things we want? ; ; . W. C. BARNES.
