Organization Department. WANTED BY THE PEOPLE. (1) Letters in answer to the follow ing questions. This means YOU, reader. If each of you will report for your own locality, we will have a knock-down argument against plutocracy. Your single care less ommission prevents It. (2) Postals, asking for some speakei of your own choice to visit your county this winter. This means YOU, reader. (3) Postals, telling what amount of money you can raise and pay direct to the speaker of your choice when he Comes. This means YOU, reader. (4) Postals, telling how much money the men of your own county can raise for posters or other printing, to be paid direct to any printer in your county this winter. This means YOU, reader. (5) Populists, aware of the fast-fly ing time, we have but two months more in which to raise money to print our referendum ballots. Send a postal im mediately stating how much you will pay for this purpose on Jan. 1, 1900. This means YOU, reader. (6) Postals, telling what you have done since the last election towards re pairing the damage done the People’s party by office-seekers, acting through committees and conventions. What you w'ill do. What you can do. This means YOU, reader. (7) Patriots, to state to your neigh bors that ours is the most democratic party that ever existed —at least on pa per. Then make it real. Send a nickel and by reading in our organization pamphlets our state plan, you will find full power rests with the precinct clubs, and remains inside your own county, outside of which you need not send a single cent or receive a single order. Send a postal indicating that your county will not secede from such a grand union of all the other counties, united in strength, to give power and freedom to the humblest voter. This duty is YOURS, reader. If you fail to act NOW, on these points, you deserve to be “roped in” by the office-seeking politicians, who are laying their own wires while you trust others to lay yours. Did you ever think that Zeke Austin, whom you all abuse, by looking after his own interests in building for himself an “appointment” at the expense of the People’s party, may, after all, be no more selfish than yourself, wholly devoted to the building of a house or cultivating your farm to the entire neglect of that same party? * * * YOU HAVE RECEIVED AN APPOINT MENT. Minneapolis, Minn., Oct. 23, 1899. 41 Washington Ave. S. My Dear Reader: By the authority vested in me, I do hereby commission you to execute the above mentioned duties. Try it at least until Jan. 1, 1900. Then resign if your enlightened con science permits you. But. sir. I assure you this is a position more honorable than any Gov. Lind can give you. Any thing he offers you puts a premium on selfishness and strengthens the boodle Democratic party, that always breaks its promises to the toilers. I call on you to rise to the occasion.

Mine goes but 53 lbs. per bushel. No corn to sneak of. Plenty of hay. Wheat about 5 cents higher this year. (2) Higher, especially trust made goods. (3) Last year farmers made a good profit. One-third of the crop paid all expenses. This year it will take three fourths of the crop to pay expenses. The farmers here raise a large amount of cattle and sell from SIOO to SSOO worth annually, so they are able to hold their wheat for better prices. I hold two-thirds of mine. (4) The merchants. But nearly all of the farmers of this county are out of debt. (5) On the average we work five days per week. Picnics, shows, holidays well patronized. Farmers here are as intelligent as anywhere. Read all kinds of politics, but few religious papers— plenty of books. (6) Seventeen years of age—far as common schools can take them. (7) Satisfactory. County too thinly settled to be well improved. (8) Reform papers will do little good. REPUBLICANS WILL NOT READ THEM SO LONG AS WE FOOL WIT H DEMOCRATS. Most people ap pear well satisfied with themselves. (9) The Dakota Ruralist, editor, W. S. Kidd. He believes in the same rem edy for trusts as Wharton Barker does. (10) We don’t talk much about Bryan. Bryan is doing nothing for us. BRYAN IS FOR BRYAN. (12) Majority Republican. Vote in 9G about 2,000, with majority for Mc- Kinley of about 19. Religion unknown. Two-thirds Americans, Simmons, L. Lapier of Huron, John Morse of Hitchcock and H. Hoffman of Wolsey, are all Populists. H. C. Hinck ley of Huron, Peter Meyer of Wolsey, Democrats. E. H. Vance of Huron is our Republican state senator. (14) I hope to vote as I have ever since 1890 —the Populist ticket. I want no more “fusion.” Give us voters the power to nominate candidates. * * * Why is a trust like a baby? Because everybody opposes it till they get one of their own. * * * ANSWERS. Steffenville, Lewis Co., Mo., Oct. 13. FROM MR. ZACK KIZER.

(8) Feel it my duty to do best I can. (9) Hard to answer because no pa per advocating specie payments can be “fair” to the people. (10) Hard to say, because most so called Democrats do as their bosses say. (11) I know nothing of this man, Lind. But throw to those Democrats who in the last campaign thought free silver the whole thing, how Bryan is now acting, and they can only open their sinful mouths and gape. (12) In numbers: Baptists in relig ion (pure and undefiled) hyprocrites. German. (13) O. C. Clay _ Canton, Democratic lawyer; Jeff Thompson, Monticello, Democrat; E. A.

He is less able to save against bad times, and he often bears things and puts up with things which the single man would not endure. So the single man is really better off than the married man, just as the steady and thrifty man is better off than the thriftless and unsteady man. And, again, if you think it out, you will see that if all our men and women workers kept single the result would be that wages would fall, just as they would if all our workers were thrifty and sober, and for the same reason; because the workers could live on less. And now I have answered that ques tion, and as it concerns your wages, let me say a few words about It as it concerns your happiness and your maii hood. It seems that a very large number of our working men and women in this rich, enlightened and prosperous coun try cannot afford to have a wife or a child. And it seems that many of them accept this state of things as natural and as unchangeable, and tamely give up all hope of love in order to make a living. Now, I ask you who are keeping single in order to make a living to think seriously what that means. Do you call It manly? I don’t. Do you call that a living which is so spare that it denies you the love of a woman, and the joy of children? I don’t. I speak in all calmness and in all sei ionsness when I say that if I loved a and that if I had to own that I could not marry her because I could not keep her, I would kill myself as a coward and a failure. But, mind you, it rvould be very hard to convince me that I could not keep her. I should try very hard first, and I should most likely begin by marrying her, and then proceed to try the issue afterwards. That, as a matter of fact, is what I did. But I cannot understand the men who tamely give up their rights to a wom an’s love and to the blessing of children in order to “make a living.” It is not a living. It is worse than the state of a savage, or an animal, or a slave. I am a man of peace and love qnietness and retirement, but if I loved a woman and she doved me. I. would go out cheerfully and fight the whole Brit ish army for her. It would amuse me to do it. I should die happy. I am afraid some of you prudent bach elors don’t love very warmly, or that you are wonderfully afeared of death. I cannot really understand a man sell ing his love, and his manhood, and talking like a coward or a slave about “Imprudent Marriages,” and all for per mission to drudge at an unwelcome task and to eat and sleep a few lonely and dishonorable years in a loveless and childless world. I’d work my fingers off, craze my brains, break my heart, tramp the whole face of the globe, and die like a man before I would repeat that coward’s les son that I could not afford to marry the woman I loved. \ou don t think that is going to save you men, do you? You don’t think you are going to make the best of life by selling for the sake of drudgery and bread and butter your proud man s right to work for, to fight for, and die for the woman you love? Old Socrates was right when he said that \ irtue consisted in a contempt for death. When you working men have grown wise enough to fear neither death nor the devil, you will be well able to marry the woman you love and keep and de fend them. While you fear death or fear failure, or fear employers, or fear anything, you will not deserve to be prosperous and free. For, having sold your love for per mission to work, how long will you be before you sell your honor? Nay, is it not true that many of you have sold it already? For a man who works at jerry work, or takes a part in any kind of adultera tion, seampery, or trade rascality, is selling his honor for wages, and is just as big a scamp and a good deal more of a coward than a burglar or a highway man. And the commercial travelers and the canvassers and agents who get their living by telling lies—as some of them <l°—do you call them men? And the gentlemen of the press who write against their convictions for a salary, and for the sake of a suburban villa, a silk hat, and some clear claret, devote their energies and talents to the perpetration of falsehood and wrong, do you call them men? They seem to me less honorable, less reputable, more base than the poor painted women who sell their honor for gin and cheap finery. No, it is better to die honest than to live a rogue. It is better to spill your blood on the ibatf, 1 or to starve in a desert free and than to sit down tamely to the „beimh or the loom to drudge for dirty bread under a task master’s eye, arffi td feel that you have sold a woman’s‘Toye, and got her scorn in exchange. V Is he a man who will leave his love to face a lonely life' and fight a cruel world alone? Or is 1m a man who will for paltry wages go into the den of a money lender, or a jerry builder, or a whisky hocusser, or a calico sizer, and do the rascal’s dirty work for him? No, men, there are times when it is better to die than to live. If you have to choose between love and life, it is better to give up life; if you are to choose between honor and life, it is bet ter to give up life. Do you doubt this? Go and ask any good woman you know, and see what shte will say to you. If the state of things in England to day make it impossible for men and women to love and marry, then the state of things in England will not do. If we cannot keep our foreign trade without giving up our love and our manhood and our honor, it is time the foreign trade went to the devil and took the British employers with it. For my part I would cheerfully sacri fice all the trade, and all the fame, and all the wealth, culture and art, and every bulwark and institution of this great empire, with my own life thrown into the bargain, before I would sacri fice that oldest, noblest, and dearest in stitution of manhood—the right to love the woman that pleases me, and to mar ry the woman I love. Indeed, if I could listen to such a proposition as that of giving up wom an’s love and the pride and delight of children for the sake of “a situation,” if I could listen to such a proposition without feeling it as an insult, I should despise myself as a coward, and would never look a woman in the face again. No, my friends, let us be men. If we cannot live as men, we can always die. And who Is afraid of dear old Death: the refuge, the rest, the peace-giver? Well, I hope I have made quite plain my feelings about the question of im prudent marriages. Old Party Misrepresentation. Editor Representative: My attention has just been called to a statement in Harper s Weekly for September 2, 1899, which statement is not true in the general sense in “Which it is made. The article is entitled “Bryan and Other Issues.” The writer says: “The farmers are now., complaining of small crops and low prices. They have never had so prosperous a time as that which has followed thp opening of the year 1897. Mortgages have been paid off and homesteads are free from debt.” Now I have no knowledge of the facts in the case, but,it seems rather profit able business which can clear the mort gages off and free the farmer from debt in two years. Such a release from bankruptcy would be even more won derful than the release accorded to Mc- Kinley. However, if it is true that the farmer is no longer in debt by reason of two years’ labor, it is a greater achieve ment than the victory at Manila. Harper’s Weekly also seems to think similar prosperity has spread over the land. It certainly is not true of this city, notwithstanding the claims of the press. This city has a very great variety of industries and, therefore, is not subject to spasmotic depression and it would seem that the wave of prosperity must reach this city as soon as other manu facturing cities. A tidal wave of pros perity was predicted because one of our carpet factories had secured an order -Dm the government for goods which Wot a Dollar Need Be Paid Unless You Are Cured, f § Save Yourself Before It Is Too Lale. « fa. 0!d and Private Diseases Our Specialty. g M TJ B-ffllTWlHl ll he'l "I i ■ ,■■ Igg « j= IWe Cure Indigestion, Weak Nerves, I 3 m £ co I H *< bj O c I S ? 1 -2, £ | jet co g 21 ST £ £ .

In fact, government orders are being judicially placed to give a spurt to business. Does this indicate business prosperity for the masses ? Does Hanna, or the government, pay the bills? The Weekly also says “internal taxes are paid without grumbling.” Does the editor refer to the Vander bilt will case, in which the attorneys in terested in the case assembled to dis cuss the situation with their clients and decided it was not best to probate the will. This being the case, is there a lawyer in the land so dull that he cannot see why the will is not to be probated? Newspaper reporters estimated at the death of the testator that the in heritance tax would amount to $6,000,- 000, and perhaps more. Now it is thought it will not amount to $3,000,000. Well, if the heirs can agree among themselves and pay their lawyers well for that little consultation, and be very coubideinte of the personal feelings of the tax collector, I think he might be made to see that stocks had materially depreciated at the time of the death of the testator, notwithstanding the won derful McKinley prosperity. Take another case: A testator with an honest desire to place his money where it will do the most good to a large class of deserving and needy individuals, wills a stated sum to each. To get the legacy, the will must be duly proved, and thus the amount due to each legatee is duly fixed and each legatee must pay the tax. There is no escape for the poorest and most deserving, but silence, secrecy, discretion and diplomacy will stifle in vestigation where large sums are at stake, and in such cases a 50 per cent discount will save some “grumbling” among wealthy legatees, and the tax collector will be both silent and dis creet. I only intended to call your attention to the wonderful prosperity of your farmers, because you would understand it better than myself. If true, I re joice in their good fortune. If it is not true someone should correct the state ment. Respectfully yours, FRANCIS LEANDER KINO, Worcester, Mas 3.

Trapping; Too Early. Fur buyers are complaining that fur bearing animals are already being caught and their furs shipped. This is a great mistake for such furs will not sell for enough to pay freight or express charges, and every animal killed now is that many less to make profitable fur after cold weather has come. The Northwestern Hide and Fur Co. say on this subject: “It is not hair that makes skins val uable, but fur; and it , takes cold weather to make fur grow. There is an old saying that fur-bearing animals are worth catching any month that there is an ‘r’ in. It is true that they have some vajye, but most kinds have so .little in April and September that it does not pay to catch them. Another thing, it is unlawful to catch mink, muskrat, beaver and otter between the first day of May and the first day of No vember. and the offenders are liable to a fine or imprisonment (according to the game laws of Minnesota).We are glad there is such a law, and if all the people knew it, it would greatly add to the value of the furs sent to market, for the skins of most fur-bearing ani mals are not worth half the value in September as they are in November or December, because *hey are only half grown and the fur is thin. As the weather gets colder the fur thickens, and by late fall and early winter most of the land animals are prime. Skunk are the first to become prime of all land animals, and from the middle of October it does fairly well to commence catching them, although if allowed to live a month longer it would be better. The prospects for good values are encourag ing.” Complete market report and a vast amount of valuable information will be issued by the Northwestern Hide and Fur Co., November 1.
