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.

Thomas Nelson Page, the novelist,

and they, in turn, like him.
"Moses Stebbins is a good friend
of mine," Mr. Page said at a dinner
party. "One morning I met him on
horseback and he was chuckling.
"'What's the joke, Mose?' I said.
" 'De joke is, sah,' he answered, 'dat

"'How did you win it?' I asked.

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."
Moffat asked the commissioner if
