Resolution by the State Convention
Declare for Sil* f
pemand That the lest Rational Con
vention Declare for Sixteen
to One.
Denver, Col., July 3.—Upon the assem
bling of the Democratic state convention
yesterday afternoon the following re
port was made by the resolutions com
The Democratic party of Colorado In
mass convention assembled declares:
First, that it affirms its devotion to the
principles of Democracy as expounded
by Jefferson and Jackson, among which
is the belief in an honest, stable and
sound curency, the basis of which shall
be silver and gold, both metals being ad
mitted to the mints for free and unlim
ited coinage at a ratio of 16 to 1; that
the history of the world's production of
both metals proves that such a ratio
has successfully maintained the parity of
the two metals and that such parity can
only be destroyed by unwise legislation
which tends to further increasa the
wealth of the few while the masses of the
people are being impoverished.
Second, the people of the whole world
are to be congratulated that in the Unit
ed States of America the Democratic
party, true to itself and its principles,
will again champion the cause of the
people against the money power of this
and other countries, and that it will
never cease to battle for the restoration
of silver to its time-honored place as
Third, it sends greeting to the people
of sister states who are awakening to a
realization of the ruin and desolation
that must follow in the wake of gold mo
nometallism and assures them that the
Democratic party of Colorado will never
surrender its convictions on this great
issue, but will do battle for the restora
tion of silver until the wrong inflicted
upon the people by the destruction of
its money function has been lighted.
Fourth, in view of the fact that single
gold standard papers in the East have
seized upon the action of the Republican
clubs in this state, recently assembled in
Denver, as Justifying the declaration that
the Interest in the silver question in Colo
rado is dying out, the Democratic party
of this state emphatically declares its
purpose to stand for the free and unlim
ited coinage of silver, at the ratio of 16
to 1, with or without international agree
ment, to the end, and calls upon every cit
izen of the state who considers the silver
question as greater than party allegiance
to rally to its standard until justice shall
be done.
Fifth, we urge upon the Democrats of
every county and precinct in the state
the importance of Immediate and effec
tive organization and that at the ap
proaching election for county officials
a full ticket be nominated in every coun
ty which shall stand for and represent
the principles herein expressed.
Sixth, believing that the masses of the
Democratic party throughout the Unit
ed States are in sympathy with the move
ment for the restoration of silver, we
call upon them to take such action as
will secure the selection of delegates
to the next national convention who
shall declare absolutely for the free coin
age of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1; and
be actuated by the same spirit which
prevailed with our forefathers when they
declared in favor of American indepen
dence; and insist and demand that these
United States shall restore to silver its
rightful place as a money metal inde
pendent of the action of any other coun
try in the world.
Seventh, Resolved, That we expressly
dissent from the financial policy of the
present administration: we are opposed
to the Issue of interest-bearing bonds in
time of peace.
Eighth, Resolved, That we second the
call of the Democracy of the state of
Illinois for a convention of the Democra
cy of the nation to put the Democratic
party upon its historic platform of sound
money, consisting of the gold and silver
coinage of the constitution.
Ninth, that a committee be appointed
to prepare an address embodying the
sense of this convention and the dis
tribution of the same throughout the
The resolutions were adopted without
dissent or discussion.
Thomas J. O’Donnell, of Denver, was
called for and responded in a short ad
dress, in which he predicted that the
next Democratic convention would de
clare for free silver. He denounced the
present administration for following, as
he claimed, the policy of John Sherman.
Addresses by Judge Yeaman and ex-Gov.
Alva Adams followed.
The following delegates to the Demo
cratic bimetallic convention to be held
at Washington Aug. 14, were chosen:
Charles S. Thomas, J. T. O’Donnall,
Alva Adams, John A. Gordon, J. Ernest
Meiers, J. W. Barnes, E. L. Coates, Chas.
O. N. Fug, Theron Stevens, A. T. Connell,
Jos. Morgan and Adair Wilson.
The following were named as a commit
tee to draft an address to the people of
the United States on the silver question:
Charles S. Thomas, Alva Adams, James
Shinn. Frank E. Walker, Adair Wilson,
Sam E. Browne, H. O. Sweeney and Mrs.
The meeting then adjourned.
From the Minneapolis Penny Press.
It seems that Mexico has just made a
loan on a “silver basis,” the debt and in
terest to be paid in silver, has placed the
same upon the foreign market, and sold
the whole at “sixty-nine cents pn the dol
In view of the fact that "silver bullion”
is worth only about sixty-one cents in
London, this sale amounts to “a premium”
of over 13 per cent when reckoned on a
gold basis, and is certainly a most remark
able sale.
When we consider that the United
States government was only offered 104%
for “a gold bond” at 3 per cent, when the
President of the United States undertook
to bulldoze congress into the passage of a
law which would give legal authority to
issue such a bond, this sale is a most re
markable one.
Of course the advocates of the gold stan
dard »will howl about a loss of thirty-one
cents on the dollar, as compared with the
gold bullion, but no such arguments will
•pass unchallenged. These same bonds
. will produce, at sixty-nine cents on the
dollar, a sufficient amount of gold to buy
whatever Mexico may need, whether it be
internal improvement or imported pro
ducts, more than double as much as her
silver bullion will buy.
When she is ready to pay that debt she
can go into the market of the world, and
buy the silver necessary to repay the
debt, created by these bonds at a less price
than silver bullion brings today—unless
it should happen that bi-metallism should
b« re-established throughout the; world.
thus raising the price of silver to the stan
dard of gold.
It is amusing to note how the advocates
of the gold standard “will blow hot and
blow cold - as suits their convenience
when discussing this subject. In one
breath, when it is for their convenience,
they will declare that the remonetization
of silver will in no wise enhance the price
of silver bullion. This argument is made
when these gentlemen desire to knock
down the proposition of re-coinage on a
basis of “16 to 1.” On the other hand,
however, when they are condemning the
Mexican authorities for accepting sixty
one cents in gold for a silver bond, they
will promptly point out the danger of such
a transaction by demonstrating that “sil
ver is liable to be worth an hundred cents
on the dollar by the time these bonds ma
It only goes to show how very much at
§ea all advocates of the gold standard are,
when it comes to logical argument. They
would have the public believe that our
money must be of such “intrinsic worth”
as to make it of of an hundred
cents on the dollar without reference to
legalization. These men protest against
the proposition that “any law making
silver a legal tender for debts of all kinds
equal with gold,” will in any wise enhance
the value of silver.
On the other hand, however, when it
becomes convenient to denounce the
financial transactions of the Mexican gov
ernment when the attitude of these gold
advocates is promptly reversed and the
admission is squarely made that the adop
tion of the bi-metallic principle would
compel Mexico to pay an hundred cents in
gold for the silver wherewith to liquidate
the debt just created.
While every advocate of the silvej doc
trine believes the latter proposition to be
true, nevertheless he has so little faith in
the concentration of national thought, up
on this subject to the extent of accom
plishing business results, that he believes
Mexico to be justified in what she has
Violent Protest Against the Imprison
ment of Eugene
Demand Bade on Congress for Legal Pro
tection of Organized
Washington, July 3.—Several hundred
members of the local Knights of Labor
were addressed by Master Workman Sov
ereign last night at a meeting held to pro
test against the imprisonment of Eugene
V. Debs, president of the American Rail
way union, and manager of the great Chi
cago strike last year. Mr. Sovereign de
nounced the confinement of Debs as an
unlawful act of the courts. He exhorted
the workingmen to bond together for
mutual protection and announced that he
had issued an order to the Knights of
Labor of the United States to set apart
labor day, the first Monday in September,
as a time to make a mammoth protest
against Mr. Debs incarceration. Several
other speakers followed Mr. Sovereign.
It was the opinion of the majority of
them that the only successful way to
make a strike was to act at the polls.
At the conclusion of the speechmaking
a resolution was adopted demanding of
congress constitution which shall give
legal protection to organized employes of
corporations and secure them in the fu
ture from arbitrary and unjust applica
tion of an injunction under a gross and
wilful misconstruction of the law. The
resolution also demanded that the stat
utes of labor organizations shall be le
gally drafted and the duty of the judi
ciary in all matters at issue between em
ployer and employe fully defined.
Skin removing for beautifying purposes
is having a great vogue among the wo
men who can afford it. At present the
price for making over the face of a wo
man under 50 is SSO. An older subject
who is greatly wrinkled has to pay SIOO.
The- operation confines one to her room
for five days and is somewhat painful,
but not unbearably so. as the skin remov
ing paste contains cocaine to numb the
surface it rests upon. An odd thing is
that if you have your wrinkles removed
before you are really an old woman they
will come again as you advance to the
wrinkle age; but if you have them re
moved after you are as wrinkled as you
are ever likely to be they do not return.
And a danger of the operation, so far as
its complete success goes, is that you will
move your face while the paste is getting
in its deadly work. If you do a wrinkle
forms and cannot be gotten rid of. Liter
ally you must bear the pain with an ab
solutely placid countenance. Even a
grin is detrimental.

The Sayings of Great Men Which Have
Become Common Phreses of
From Kings, Generals, Statesmen and Wo-
men Have-Gome These Historic
We have preserved to us many his
torical sayings of famous or well-known
personages, uttered in times of action
or on some important occasion. Most
of these serve as landmarks of history;
sonie have passed into proverbs; while
others have supplied us with convenient
phrases, used without regard t<# their
original motive, says a writer in Cham
ber’s Journal. Of these last we have
an example from ancient history. Pyrr
hus, king of Epirus, after a long and ob
stinately contested engagement, defeat
ed the Romans in the battle of Heraclea.
As he viewed the battlefield, where a
large number of his best officers had
fallen, he exclaimed:
“Another such victory and we are un
done”—a sentiment which has been echo
ed more than once in modern wars.
One of the most famous historical mots
is that attributed to Louis XIV. when 17
years of age. The president of the
French parliament, speaking of the in
terests of the state, was interrupted by
the king with:
“L’Etat, e’est moi!”
“All is lost save honor,” was the an
nouncement, in a condensed form, of
Francis I. in a letter to his mother after
the defeat of Pavia.
A phrase which owes its birth to the
French revolution was that of Mme. Ro
land. As she was being led to execution
she passed a statue of liberty, erected by
the revolutionists. Looking at it in
tently she exclaimed:
“0, liberty, how many crimes are com
mitted in thy name!”
At the battle of Fontenoy occurred a
well-known instance of politeness on the
part of the English and French guards,
which, it is almost needless to say, could
only have happened in those ceremonious
times. The two battalions of opposing
guards were about to join in conflict,
when the English commander exclaimed:
“Gentlemen of the French Guards,
fire!" ,
The French officer, not to be outdone
in politeness returned the salute, and re
“After you, gentlemen. The French
Guards never fire first.”
Upon which the English gentlemen,
thinking further ceremony needless,
fired with such effect as to put nearly
900 of the French gentlemen hors de
combat. Somewhat costly politeness for
Nelson has given us some historical
phrases. Each of his three great battles
has its own particular motto, insepara
bly connected with It.
“Victory or Westminster Abbey!” was
his exclamation before the battle of the
Nile. During the battle of Copenhagen,
three of the British line-of-battle ships
became disabled, and Sir Hyde Parker,
fearful for the issue, rendered doubly
doubtful by the unexpected and desper
ate resistance ef the Danes, made the
signal to leave off action. Nelson,
greatly excited, exclaimed: x
“Keep my signal for close action fly
ing—nail mine to the mast.”
Who does not know the memorial sig
nal to the fleet on the eve of the battle of
“England expects every man to do his
Equally well known is Cromwell’s ad
vice to his troops as they were about to
cross a river to engage an enemy. Hav
ing made a speech as was his custom on
such occasions, he finished up with:
“Put your trust in God, but be sure to
see that your powder is dry.”
There is surely nothing Cromwellian in
such a happy combination of piety and
practical advice.
Sir Robert Walpole vehemently opposed
the Spanish war in 1739. When he heard
the London bells ring upon the declara
tion of war he remarked:
“They may ring their bells now, but be
fore long they will he wringing their
“It is magnificent, but it is not war,”
was said to be the exclamation of Gen.
Bosquet on witnessing the immortal
charge on the light brigade at Balaklava,
although Bosquet denied that he ever
used the expression.
“Oh, for an hour of Dundee!” was the
cry of Gordon, of Glenbucket, at the bat
tle of Sheriffmuir when the Jacobites were
hard pressed by the royalist forces. This
which has been echoed with the difference
of another name for that of the redoubta
ble Viscount in many a battle scene.
The emperor Nicholas was the author of
one of the most notorious phrases—per
haps the most notorious in a political
sense—which the Ninteenth century has
heard. In the beginning of 1853 he had
several conversations with the English
ambassador, Sir E. H. Seymour, in regard
to the then probable dissolution of the
Turkish empire. In one of these he said:
“We have on our hands a sick man, a very
sick man. It will be a great mistake if
he should slip away from us before the
necessary arrangements have been made.”
To divide the spoil, he meant. The re
sult of his making these arrangements on
his own account is well known. The
phrase, however, was not altogether orig
inal. The ambassador of James 11. at
Constantinople wrote that the Ottoman
empire had “the body of a sick old man,
who tried to appear healthy, though his
end was near.”
It waS Olivier, Napoleon lll.’s constitu
tional minister, who plunged into the dis
astrous war of 1870 “with a light heart.”
And though the phrase “blood and iron”
is as old as Quintilian, it was Bismarck
who made it a historical phrase for what
he regarded as the sole cure of Germany's
political troubles.
In conclusion a famous reply of Plato’s
may be given. When asked if any saying
of his would be recorded he replied:
“Wait until we become famous and then
there will be many.” Although true in
the main, it is not always the person who
utters it that makes the phrase famous,
but sometimes the occasion which calls it

A good friend of the Representa
tive, who furnished the premiums
previously awarded, not being weary
in well doing, but moved by ap earnest
desire to extend its circulation, makes
another offer, viz:
To send 15 choice Barred Plymouth
Rock eggs to any person who remits
50 cents for them to the Represent
ative. All money sent to the Rep
resentative for eggs, will be used to
pay for papers, by the man, furnish
ing the eggs, he only, giving names.to
whom, he desires the Representa
tive sent.
Send in your orders, for the Plym
outh Rock eggs. In regard to quality
he says: “I guarantee thatthe eggs will
be securely and carefully packed, and
that they are from as line barred
Plymouth Rocks as there are in the
state, I care not who claims to have
better. I have bred these birds care
fully for 10 years, and have been to
considerable expense to secure high
standard male birdsto breed from. Last
spring I secured two high scoring
birds from Mr. Hurst of Waterloo, la.
He took first prize at lowa State Poul
try show and sold a number of birds at
$lO each.”
You Chn send in orders now for eggs
for August hatching. The Plymouth
Rocks are a quick maturing breed and
therefore will be fully grown before
cold weather sets in, and will begin
laying egg early in the spring.

Names Marked “For the

“I will also give to the one sending
in the largest number of paid up sub
scriptions to the Representative
by October Ist, 1895. A pen of birds
consisting of four pullets and one
cockerel, as fine birds as my experi
ence and judgment can select.
I do this simply to if possible stimu
late effort to secure subscribers to the
best of all reform papers— The Rep
resentative. I sold a cockerel the
other day for sl, have no trouble in
disposing of my birds or eggs, but I do
have trouble, to be able to do all I
would like to do for the paper. lam
thoroughly convinced our success in
’96 in this state will depend as much
upon a large subscription to the Rep
resentative as any other one thing,
and as long as I have these convic
tions, I am anxious to do all I can to
extend its circulation, and what I do
must be done in line with my convic
tions as to the most effective form.”
Being the lucky winer of the Plym
outh Rock eggß offered as a premium
for subscriptions to “The Representa
tive,” and in obedience to the request of
the donor that I acknowledge receipt
through “The Representative,” I hereby
do the same.
Awake, ye children of the mighty he
roes of 1620; banish prejudice from your
mind, boom “The Representative,” and
the People’s Party, and thereby help to
establish liberty once more in the land
of our fathers.
I in turn have presented the eggs re
ceived to a widow lady, who makes a
specialty of raising pure bred poultry.
She now has a pen of each of the follow
ing kinds of pur’e bred chickens: Hou
dans, R. C. B. Leghorns, Single Comb
Leghorns, Silver Laced Wyandottes,
Golden Wyandottß, and will probably
now hawe a start in the Barred Plymouth
Rocks. Her poultry cannot be beat in
the state. Being a true blue Populist
(without a vote), she offers as a premium
the one sending in the largest list of
subscriptions to “The Representative”
by October first, two pullets and one
cockerel of any of the breeds mentioned
above. To the one sending the second
highest number of subscriptions she will
send 21 eggs of any breed. I guarantee
that she will do as she agrees, or I will
pay $4.50 cash in place of the fowls and

some advantage over most Alliance men

further agree not to compete for the

So long as the sovereign reigns, but
does not govern, and is a mere ornament
al figure-head, few would engage in a
republican crusade. But if we were to
have a sovereign who sought in any way
to meddle In government, the monarchy
would soon be doomed. Those who have
a theoretical objection to a monarchy
are influenced rather by a dislike to the
courtiers and flunkeys that are insepar
able from a court than by any strong
feeling against an ornamental figure
head. The monarchy would be greatly
strengthened were it severed from these
parasitical creatures.
In estimating the action of the queen
during her long reign, it must not be for
gotten that, when she came to the throne,
the idea of the sovereign reigning and
not governing was by no means estab
lished. George 111., George IV., and Wil
liam IV., were perpetually meddling
and trying to impose their will on the
nation. The Prince Consort sought to
impose his in foreign politics, and es
pecially in regard to all matters where
Germany was concerned. The Queen,
under his guidance, frequently refused to
allow this man or that man to become a
minister of the cr'own, as may be read
in the “Memoirs of Lord Malmesbury.”
With a knowledge of this many leading
men in the House of Commons take care
to hold aloft from any active participa
tion in resisting royal grants, etc. Still,
I am bound to admit that under the
Queenship of the present sovereign such
progress has been made in “reigning,
not governing,” that there is little fear
of any of her successors interfering in
politics.—London Truth.

Paper in the United States.
Personally Edited by
Ex-Congressman, ex-Lieutenant Governor, ex-State Senator; author of
“Atlantis,” “Ragnarok,” “The Great Cryptogram,” “Caesar’s Column,”
“Doctor Huguet” and “The Golden Bottle.” His name is a household
word in every home in Minnesota, and every intelligent person wants to
know what he has to say on the great questions of the day, including—
And all other matters on which depends the
Prosperity of the Common People.
The Representative is less than two years old;—it has built up an
immense circulation in Minnesota and all over the nation.
Besides Mr. Donnelly’s editorials, it contains every week a page
of letters from the brightest minds of the country.
Read the copy of the paper which is left with you.
We want you and you want us.
You Want to Know What is Keeping You Poor, while tho Capital"

The paper is one dollar a year, or fifty cents for six months;—or you’ean
take a trial subscription for 25 cents for three months. An eight-paga
paper, filled with the choicest matter, coming every Wednesday, is surely .
worth 25 cents for three months, or ABOUT TWO CENTS A WEEK.
You can afford that much outlay to hear the People’s side of the cast
on the great issues of the century, no matter how “hard-up” you are.
