New Yobk, April 24, lJl.-(Speclal
to The Wealth MKiRS.)-Th ad
journed conference of tte represent
tires of tbe Koighta of Labor, Central
Labor Federation, Socialist Labor Tarty
and tbe Peopl'. party last Monday
evening resulted in harmony beyond all
hopes. A composite platform of 22
plaoki was adopted, Including most of
tbe Socialist Ltbor Party piatrorm, w
addition from the platform! of tbe ether
bodies. This platform Is to be referred
to the member of tbe organizations,
aad, If generally adopted, It Is expected
ul Independent Labor Party will be
formed In this city, which will play an
important part In the November elec
tions. Tbe conference will meet again
on May 21st, and the question ef name
will come up, which will probably
arouse unfortunate differences of opin
1m. The supreme court deoltloa of last
week was a great victory for organized
labor. Justice Lawrence took the same
grounds as did Justice Van Hrunt. of
the general term, some days: earlier,
when he decided that tbe circulating of
boycotting circulars was not In viola
tion of the law, but that such circulars
were tbe weapons of labor, and should
be regarded as such. "Tby were pur
suing," said the judge, "precisely the
game course against tbe Manufacturers'
Association as tbe Manufacturers' Asso
ciation were urging against them. It Is
a familiar principle In equity that the
plaintiff must come Into court with
clean bands." Tbe plain Inference Is
that the firm who locks out its employ
ei is wanting In this prime condition.
Petition books for woman suffrage,
ftjklng that the word "male" be strick
en from tho constitution in the coming
convention, are being widely circulated
sod extensively signed in the various
labor organisation in this city.

Editor Wealth Makers:
In 1 set J the United States was literally
humming witu Industry, employers
were eHgerly seeking working men, and
so great was the demand that handsome
premiums were frequently offered to
obtain tbum. Only u year before nearly
two millions of men had suddenly been
taken from our national battle fields and
precipitated upon the industrial world
to gain a living in the ptaoeablo avoca
t'oai of labor. And sii.i there was an
urgent demand or more. Today after
twenty-eight yean n peace, of general
health, aud abundant crop, a vatarmy
of over three mlHIoni of rosn have b en
mustered out of th ranks of labor and
are teaching in vain for employment

Editor Wealth Makers:
Tbe "better system" referred to in our
platform In my private opinion publicly
expressed, would be to make every pot
ofllce a U. S. bank, loaning all the
money that tbe people cared to botrow
at 2 per cent, per annum, and taking it
on deposit when tbe people did not care
to use it. ' It would be "safe, sound and
flexible," the people banking on their
own account, C. (' C.
Both the Democratic and Republican
parties have established bead-quarters
and are today preparing millions of
campaign documents to be sent out dur
ing tills cumpalgn.
It is the opinion of the shrewdest
politicians at Washington, tbat if the
People's Party takes advantage of tbe
blunders and Infamy of tho present
administration, there will be no trouble
in electing Populist members enough
to hold tbe balance of power in tho
next Congress. It is alio admitted by
the closest ou.'irvers among both the
Democratic na Itepjbllcan politician!
that tho nt election of president will
bo thrown into tbe House, which will
give tbe Populists the power to dictate
who shall bo tb next president of tbe
United States? Tho election In the
state of Orciron comes off in Juno, and
in Alabama in August. We aro al
most absolutely sure to carry Alabama,
and we stand an even chance with elthor
of the old parties in Oregon. To help
to carry Oregon and Alabama Is to hjl p
put life and ontbusiasm in our party in
every state in the Union.
Tho People's Party is composed of
the great common people of the country
who are poor and honest, It has no
millionaires, bank or railroad corpora
tions upon which to call for campaign
Tho National Committee has estab
lished hcad-Quarteri at Washington
where it can procure an unlimited
t of camoalirn literature at a
small cost. Ono thousand dollars used
In cur party will do as much work as a
hundred thousand dollars In ultuer or
tbe old parties.
After carefully considering tho above
facts and the bright prospects for our
oartv In tbe coming campaign, we two!
it our imperative duty to appeal to our
people everywhere to come to tho aid
of the national committee In doing this
great work. In the lust election our
party polled more than a million votes
We now earnestly apical to 1,000 of
that number to give us $5 each, 10,000
to Rive us l each," 20,000 50 cents each,
20,000 25 cents each, aud the tomalnder
of the one million to give us 10 cent
and 5 cents each. Wo also earnestly
appeal to all People's Tarty Clubs, Le
gions, and Leagues to raise what funds
they can for the oommlttoo, by taking
up collections, giving entertainments
etc. We make this request because we
believe it our duty to do so. It our
party ever attains success, each mem
ber nt the party roust contribute to that
uooes not only with hi ballot, but
with whatever means be can nar. To
rvupocd promptly and liberally means
success that will bless the nation for all
time to come.
All contributions should be sent to

Is very doubtful If tho men now work

Threats are made that If they do not

The general opiuion seems to be
that the strike will not lust through

that an understanding will be reached
