Parker, Editor, Louisville, Ky. to see President Roosevelt lending himself to this wicked proposition, Cleveland, during the whole time he was in office, was hostile to the green backs and recommended that they be destroyed. Nobody was surprised at this. In fact, Cleveland had exhausted the capacity of honest men to be sur prised. But the country hoped for better things from Mr. Roosevelt. He was thought to be too strong a man to be the blind ' tool of the national bankers. , 1 . - . The greenback is hurting nobody, it is doing gueat good; its only, enemy is the national banker, whose motive is sordidly se0sh. Let the greenback alone! . , - If the president will take the trouble to study for himself the financial statements issued by his own sub ordinates, he will discover a state of things which would otherwise be in credible. ; i He will find that the bankers are drawing compound interest on more money than there is in existence! He will find that they reap usurious revenues from three times as much money as there' is "in actual circula tion! He will find that they have drawn interest upon seven times as much money as they actually have! Under the law of its birth, ' the greenback is real money. Like gold and silver, it comes direct" from the government to the people. If you burn it, and do not supply its place, you contract the currency at. a time when such contraction means national disaster. If you burn the greenback, and allow the national banker to sup ply its place with his own notes, then you rob the people of thirty., million dollars annually and give the spoils to the banker! He already earns about $50,000,000 per year on his special privilege of issuing currency. Isn't that enough? He already enjoys the use of one hundred million dollars of the tax money which other people pay into the treasury; and he fattens on the luxury of getting this money free of interest and of lending it out at com pound interest to the "other people." Isn't that enough? And he has filled the channels of trade with his "lines of credit," his loans of money which has no exist ence save in the confidence of his dupes, until his yearly income from fictitious money is half as great as the entire revenues of the government! Isn't that enough? The greenback is the barrier which stands between the national banker and absolute financial despotism. Let it alone! Tom Watson's Magazine.

" Kansas City, July 28.--The interest ing fact has been brought out in the recent hearing before the interstate commerce commission that a number of elevator men here secure double rebates, and that competition is al leged to be the cause. No secret wr.s made of the fact that almost all of them get a rebate of 14 cents per 100 pounds on all grain sent through an elevator, though one witness, E. O. Moffat, caused a -ild sensation when he expressed the belief that the Milwaukee railway was paying an "allowance" to the Simonds-Shields Commission company which it re fused to allow to the witness, though he himself is a heavy shipper. Some Get No Rebates E. P. Lint, secretary of the Hinds & Lint Grain company, stated that most elevators here are paid by the railroads an allowance of 1 cents per hundred pounds on grain going through them, but as far as he knew refund was only on outgoing grain and nothing ever paid on inward bound grain. E. O, Moffatt, who fol lowed Mr. Lint, said he received IV cents allowance from the Union Pa cific, Rock Island, Santa Fe, Burling ton, Alton and Missouri Pacific ele vators, but added that he did not get it from the Milwaukee elevator. "A traffic official told me today that any man who did not get the IY4 cent allowance in Kansas City must be a freak," said Counsel Barry. "Then I am a freak," quickly re sponded the witness. "Do you know if the Milwaukee allows the allowance to any one?" the counsel inquired. After some hesitation the witness F.ald he thought the Simonds-Shields Commission company got it, and that no one else did. , Likes Discrimination - "That is discrimination, if that is so," was the conclusion of the coun sel. - Mr. Moffatt was asked if he thought the allowance ought to be made. He said he thought it should." "I think that it ought to be made to the big shippers," he answered. "I think the man wno snips ivu.vvv Dusneis a month ought to get a little better deal than the man who ships only 1,000 bushels a year." -,. This brought Commissioner Cock rell on the line instantly. "There is where I think you are entirely wrong," he said with asperity. "No govern ment could live under such a condi tion. The rich would soon absorb everything and the small man would be wiped out of existence. The whole business we are on now started from a railroad giving a man a rebate. The other shippers heard about it and they all demanded the same rebate. The minute the railroad does a thing like that it opens the way to swindling, petty graft and bigger grafting and crooked work. It is wrong, all wrong. It is so wrong that nobody knows what to call it. Down in Louisville they call it a 'swag,' and an 'equal izer,' which it is not. Here you call it an 'allowance.' It is all wrong."
