A MENACING DANGER IN THE SOUTH, An Effort by Free Silver Congressmen to Sidetrack the Popuiisrs. Never before in the history of the Democratic party of the .south or any other place was there as much dis satisfaction as at present. The reasons for this 'tre obvious. The action of the party on the silver question; the hostility of Cleveland to everything in the interest of the masses; the panic and genera! depression of busi ness everywhere; the failure to redeem its uleifces to the Deoole: and the i r; i a quarreling, quibling and filibustering, the divisions and petty jealousies and bickerings all have created a disgust that is causing disintegration of the Democratic party in tlie south. The southern politicans are alarmed over the situation. Two years ago they went before the people and promised that if they were given a chance they would pass a free silver law. abolish tlie MeKinlcy tariff law, do away with national banks and wipe up the ground with the trusts. Not one of these things have they done. On the other hand they have gone t. a greater length in the interest ot Wall street than'rthe Republicans did: What will they say to the people in the coming campaign? W hat account can they render of their stewardship? What excuse can they plead for their promises : These are the questions that arc troubling the politicans of the south, and causing them to lav awake of nights. but tl e politician of the south is a wiley individual. lie is hard to put in a hrle and when bought th te he didn't seem to know it. lie has already made up his mind what to do. lie proposes to make drover Cleve land the cape goat for the sins of the Democratic party and go before the people again on the issue of free silver. Hut with the intelligent voter this won't go down. The man who knows that tie' majority of the Democratic congress men voteu against silver at a lime when their vote would count. That was before the repeal of the Sherman law. At that time they have seemed some more of favorable legislation or retained that law on the statute books as a club to compel something better. But they did not do it. They surrendered to Wall street. Here is the vote taken on the vari ous propositions, Angnst 28th, lS!:i For free coinage at the ratio of 1(1 t 1. Yeas. 124. Nays. 227. For free coinage at the ratio of 17 to 1. Yeas. 100. Nays. 240. For free coinage at the ratio of ltf to 1. Yeas. 102. Navs. For free coinage at the ratio of 19 to 1. Yeas. 121. N:iys. 222. For re-enactment of the Bland-Allison bill. Yeas. 126. Nays. 213. For repeal of the Sherman law. Yeas, 210. Nays. 110. The aliove is, tin' vote. There is no do Igiug mat question, i ne uouse is democratic by over eighty majority. The free silver Democrats had the as sistance of all the Populists and about dfteen Republicans. Yet a majority of the Democrats voted against sd ver. Voted down the only silver law we had. Voted the thing in a shape where Cleveland's veto would kill all future stiver legislation during his adminis tration. Voted to put this club in his bands and now abuse him Tor using It was a surrender to Wall street. Not of Cleveland (for he had already surrendered) but of the Democratic party that claimed to be the friend of the people. On every vote recorded above a majority that were cast against silver were Democratic votes. Let the people of the south remem ber this. Let them point to the record. Render unto Ceasar the things that are Ceasar's. Cleveland did just what any well informed person expected he would do. Just what he recomended in two of his messages. But the Democratic party did n t. It violated its promises. It cannot escape the responsibility. Eieie are the facts. The Democratic politicans said boys give ns a chance and we'll do all these things you want us to do, and undo the things we have denounced the Republicans for doing. The " pops" gave them the chance. What is the record? They demonetized silver. They increased their sa'.aries. They favored the national banks. They issued bonds in the time of peace. Thev have not repealed the McKin ley tai itF law. Tl.ey have not demolished the trusts. The) have not redeemed their prom ises. They have quarreled among them selves. With over eighty majority in the house they have failed to furnish a quorum a good part of the lime. In the midst of an industrial de pression unprecedented they have blundered along, filibustering for partisan advantage. There is no hope of free silver leg islation through the Democratic par ty, because a majority of the voted against it. l,ari3 The vote on the Bland seigniorage ill amounts to nothing. That was the Democratic flag of distress. There was no danger of it becom mg a law, for Cleveland could, veto it as even body knew he would. It was a sop to throw to the voters It was a part of the program to again mislead them into the support of a parly :n carrying out the will of Wall street. The vote in August, 1893, on the various inonosii ions is the actual test ,. ,, , , ., .. .. o! the Democratic strength on the sd- ver question. Don't let them fool you arain. Cleveland, of course, is responsible for his part, but the party is respon sible for giving us Cleveland. S There is only one free silver party. j It is the Populist party. A vote foi tlu.t party is a vo'e for j free silver. i A vote for either of t cold parties. or anv one that acts with Ihem. is a 1 vote for Wall street, because Wall ! street control both. A tremendous effort is being made to sidetrack the People's party. New promises Will be made. Cleveland and the eastern Demo crats will be denounced. But if the large majority which the Democrats now have in congress docs not enable them to do something how can they evei be expected to do any thing. It is generally conceded that this majority will be reduced in the next congress. A party that lies once will be apt to lie again. The western and southern Demo crats think more of their party than thev do of principle, hence they sick to it at the sacra flee of principle. Don't be fooled again. j Don't be sidetracked.

It is generally understood j that for John Sherman's service j to Cleveland, in getting silver de monetize .1 ft r the benefit of the money power of the east, that mal- ters were to be placed in such a shape that the Republicans were to go into power. j The people are expected to ratify J all these stealing jobs. A few brass ! bands, a wave or two of the bloody shirt, and a few high tariff speeches are expected to do the work, while a precious lot of greenhorns do the j voting. j In 1872 we sold our wheat right ' here in Barton county for $1 7j per bushel, we bought some good mules ! and paid $354! per span for them. and were told that this was a fic titious value and would ruin the peo- pie. Everybody had money then, land paid their debts, now we get 50 cents for our wheat, and 7." a span j for our mules, and only a few have any money at all. Three fourths of our people are hopelessly involved i.. debt, with bankruptcy s taring them in the face. Lack of confidence we are told is all the trouble with us Industrial Union, Lamar, Mo. A Genuine Democrat. i Some of our latter davs Democrat - i who favor a high tariff gold standard and the practical demonetization of silver, aud exempting from taxation the income of the bloated bond hold ers and putting a tax no joint stock conpanics whose members are people I of small means, should refresh theii knowledge as to what constitute true I Jefferson ian Democracy. If they would study the writing of that gen j nine Democrat. Tho -. Jefferson, they would find that he never for a j moment forgot that ours is a govern j incut of the people, for the people and by the people lie believed in the i practice 1 simplicity an I ecouoaay in the administration of public affairs, i He favored low tariff, a graduated tax upon individual income and the free coinage of both gold and silver. He opposes monopolies, the concen- i traction of the money power and the centralization of the federal power. Nearly all the evils that have befaleL the ccuntry are the result of a depar ture from Thomas Jefferson's poliey Hopkmsvilie New Era. J, A. rlollingsworih, of Gainsville, secretary of the Ozark county central committee, writes as follows: This county has always been overwhelm uiglv Republican and is controlled - 1 I o rings no inn iiuii, ijin -u gii.o out -a many thinking Republicans ere getting tired of it. The administration has demoralized the Democrats and I don't think they will put out a ticket in the county, this fall. The Popu lists will put a straight, clean ticket in the held and preach the gospel of true political economy w:th middle of the road principles, which has never been done before. Under the circumstances we have a lighting show." Tarkio Independent. The noted divine, Rev. Myron Reed, of Denver. Colo., in a sermon delivered Sunday on the Coxey move ment, said: "I would like to see half a million of the unemployed camped in and around the national reservation called the District of Col umbia, Prom there most of our woes have come. To there let them return. Let the chickens hatched in Wash ington go home to roost." mum When the combined forces of Gen. Frey and Gen. Kelley enter Wash ington on the 1,000 Texas mules which are to be furnished them, they will at least feel no appreheu sion of a rear attack by the police.

The contest between capital am labor is a very searious one ano threatens the peace of this country. There is a middle and conservative, mound between these two forces and upon that ground it is necessary for legislation to place them. They must not wnr upon each other, for neithei can thrive and prosper without the aid of the other. At this junctu.v. our country demands just men au.. men of experiance, who entertain equitable views upou the labor ques tion, ami to such men only can we noar look for leaders to pilot the ship-of-state away from the breaker which threaten her destruction. Tin press must be conservative, aud fully realize the danger that surround us. Party zeal and spirit and zeal must not lead us into advocating wild and chimercial schemes which can nevei be real iced, and conservative think ers must prcceive that it will require time to right the wrongs done b class legislation andjjre-adjust, upon an equitable financial hassis, the ad ministrative affairs of this govern ment. The perils that confront the gov ernment are grave, and it will re quire wise heads to equitably settle the labor question, and to ward to each f the contending parties theii just and lawful rights.

It is not nearly so wicked to steal a train or two, to rub- on as to steal from the whole people the roads over which lite trains run.

Such out cry on the one hand and silence on the other, from Hessian, hireling editors, but proclaims to think ing individuals t at the partisan pub lie press is owned by plutocracy and operates (-peaks) as mechanically in its owner's bauds as an old and much used MeCormick's reaper.

Then a good laborer could get $1.50 per day. Now he cannot get a job at any price for his labor.
