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. Bear to
your neighbors the only known PASS
PORT, through our national and state
referendum system, to their Industrial
and political freedom. Write your ac
ceptance. I have the honor to be
Your obedient servant,
HENRY. B. FAY, M. D„

FROM THOMAS THOMPSON, JR.
Hitchcock, Beadle Co., S. D., Oct. 12.
(1) All crops poor; wheat very light
weight. 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.

establish postal savings banks; wipe
out trusts and present banking system
and ALSO THE REPRESENTATIVE
SYSTEM; put in place thereof DIRECT
LEGISLATION.
(8) Feel it my duty to do best I can.

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.

IMPRUDENT MARRIAGES
(Continued From Page 1.)
seek work. He is in greater dread of
losing his work. 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

Iron industries connected with gov
ernment orders are looking up. 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.

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. Be sure to write
for it and mention the Representative.
