Logan's Prophetic Prediction. Senator John A. Logan, like all tin early pa.tr tots, 'stood with the people Read careful U and note the wonder ful prediction that he made as what would be the result of our financial legislation. An inspired prophet could not, have told with greater ac curacy the dire effects of our 1111 wholessome laws. He said: I ' I. or one, can see benefit only to : the money holders and those who re j ceive interest and have fixed incomes. W JB . 1 1 I can see. as a result 01 toe legisla tion, our business operat ions crippled and wages for labor reduced to a mere pittance. 1 can see the beauti ful priaries of my own State and of the great West, which are blooming as gardens, with cheerful homes ris ing like white towers along the path way of improvement, again sinking back to idleness. 1 can see mort gage fiends at their hellish work. I can see the hopes of the industrious farmers blasted as they burn.corn for fuel, because its price will not pay the cost of transportation and divi dends on millions of dollars, of ficti tious railway stock and bonds. I can see our people of the West groaning and burdened under taxation to pay debts cf.States, counties and cities, incurred when money was abundant and bright hopes of the future were held out to lead them on. I "can see the people of our Western States, who producers, reduced to the condition of serfs to pay interest on public and private debts to the money sharks of Wall street, New York, ami of Thread needle street in London, Kngland. And this will be accomplished by withdrawing the treasury notes from circulation and destroying them un til tin; banks can control the entire volume of money, and then compel the people to use personal checks in lieu of money-checks passing through the clearing house, which the banks will establish in all the larger cities, to enable them to make a fictitious showing of prosperity and fool the people with the great volume of busi ness, which they will cause to publish in the daily and weekly newspap- ers. lsut remember, checks are not money." How true this prediction has been fulfilled! The statements of the clear ing houses are published in the news papers as an evidence of prosperity. The treasury notes were destroyed ami the volume of money went into the control of the banks. The mort gage Sends are abroad in the land, the hopes of the industrious farmers blasted and the West groan ing under a burden of debt." Business operations crippled, wages reduced and idleness enforced. All this was predicted twenty years ago by that gieat republican leader and the cause he pointed out as a contraction of the currency, lint the pewees and Hers of to-day, who c 11 themselves repub licans, say it is all because Cleveland was elected. These fellows are not republicans, the are camp followers, and they would not know a genuine republican if thev met him in the i road, And were the Logans and Lin ; coins living to-day these flesh-pot scrapers wauid call them tiat fools and populist crank. Wall street seems to have come to the conclusion that the farce of keep ing up two parties could not be con tinued much longer to advantage. ller.ee Cleveland was elected to kill the Democratic organization in hopes that in the break-up the Republicans would sectfre a return to power, and ; before the dissatisfied people could ! unite and take ttie "power in their own : h:uds plutocracy could be so en trenched behind the courts and milli tarv that its poSrtton would be im pregnable. On this theory alone can Mr. Cleveland's policy bo explained.' The deliberate assassinatiou of his party would seem to indicate that his plutocratic masters propose to change ; their tactics, and in future palce themselves in a position that will en- , able them to bold their grip no mat- i roteB"Uct VOICES FROM THF CELLS. ; . atessers, A.

Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of of "Uncle Tom's Cabin,' one morning walked into the garden where Sambo was hoeing the cabbages.

On which side will you be found? Missouri World. A Banker Admits It. no estimate is made of paper and coin during the past twenty-five years. It is known that silver wears out and is renewed once in thirty years. We claim that, deducting amounts in United States Treasury and banks held as reserves and losses in paper currency and coins, gold exports and hoardings, this country is down to the actual famine circulation of less than $6 per capita, counting our population at 65,00J,000. The national banks arc in favor of further contraction. The municipal, state, county and in dividual debts of the United States exceed the legal tender, coin and pap- er twenty times over. The men who could not make business a better showing would be considered broke and yet our bankers want the expan sion of the Sherman bill cut otf. The foregoing published one vear asjo makes good reading. These gent leman who are considered good au thority on financial matters declared that the country was down to an "ac tual famine circulation of less than $6 per capita." They continually re peated that what this country needed was more legal tenders and they said that the repeal of the Sherman law wauld not bring relief. They were ri2ht. Senator Logan once declared that the panic of lST.'t was a money famine and nothing else. This is true of the panic of 1893. Populist State News. Holt county populists will hold their nominating convention at Mound City on the 12th of September. The Bates County Populist is a new reform paper just started at Hill. It has the right ring "and will be of great service to our friends in Bates. The people's party of Buchanan eouniy held a grand picnic at Easton, Aug 31. Addresses were delivered by Son. O. D.

The Chicago Times in speaking of Mr. Rosewater's bolt of the Nebraska ticket on account of its railroadism, yery pertinently says: But Mr. Rose water is inconsistent when he attempts to dlstunguish be tween the elements dominating the re publican party in Nebraska and the party elsewhere. Even" where that tarty is under conrol of the trusts the railroads, the privileged corporations of every kind. The roster of the re publican national committee reails like a corporation directory. Mere in sistence Upon the? policy of protection weds the republican party to such cor porations as the sngar trust, the Stan dard Oil company and, the Carneige concern. The rules of these gigentic j corporations are also influential m j railroad management, either by being actually directors or because of the tariff they control. Mr. Rosewater might as t weir struggle against the! force OTgraveity as try to divorce the j republican party from its affilicotins. No party can be free from domina tion of corporate influences which for a moment admits the justice of using the taxing power of, the countn for the enrichment of . individuals. ! m m Both the old parties, according to their own admission, are controlled by the trusts. They made the Mc kinley law and they passed the Me ibomian bill. As long as either .of these corrupt old machines is kept in power this will be a government of trusts, by trusts and for trusts. The only .hope of reform lies in the utter extinction of both along with their misshapen progeny which bestride the whole Union like a nightmare with nine foal. --Nonconformist.
