The Louisiana and iasoari River Railway have ratified an freemen t to turn over their stock to the licago and Alton Railroad. ,The Strike Commission's report is in clinable as an educator. It shows that te twenty-four great railroads centering Chicago are practically one organiza ou, with interests pooled and almost -powerful. :Thb Democratic power is wiped out in leeast, west and northeast, and broken Jwn largely in the south. It must go Wway of the old Whig party. Tlie it!? St-8laver-Jr Party is driving the fends of monopoly together for tl., jal battle for liberty, What we bare called a landslide, in the apulat vote was scarcely any gain for lie Republicans. But the Democrats tt nearly a million and a half of vot s. J4ie Populist party was the only party iajb made gains, and its gain through , at the nation was great. I i I . I John H. Powers received within a votes of 70,000, and being unen dorsed by the Democrats this figure indl ates the number of Populist votes cast, i'he Democrats who wenttoRepublicans Ind railroad passes, boodle and paid for, herculean labors to get all they could oteout to the polls, was what beat us his time, in part. The Populists of Idaho refused to fuse jrith the Democrats. Then the Demo-a-ate, whose only object is to get the offices, fused with the Republicans. The Populists were beaten, bnt there is left no imell of brimstone on their garments. iTfcS ftp .tterelcra in fine shape taenter the next campaign, having stood up Squarely for their principles and refused to trade them for offices. The Populista in Kansas, in spite of all, made a gain of over 15,000 votes this year. They were defeated by the Democrats going over to the Republi' eans. In the big Republican ratification at Topeka was one conspicuous banner, "All Glory to the Gallant Democracy That ' Stood by Its Principles and Helped Save I t&t) Business Interests of Kansas." . Thb railroads are vigorously objecting to and denouncing the United State Strike Commission's report, because it Condemns their usurpations of power not tres them in their charters, their effort to crash ont labor organizations by .forcing employes to withdraw from the cnion, and because it unanimously de- tads and encourages labor organiza- CALL A NATIONAL COS TERES OE "There is a tido in affairs of men which taken at its flood, leads on to fortune." That tide which baa justewept the Demo cratic party well-nigh to destruction having left it wrecked upon the shore in many states and broken the solid South provides our opportunity. Let us Listen to make use of it What was it that overwhelmed the Democratic party in the strongholds of its power? The universal discontent, the needs and distress of the people. Will the Republican party do anything to relieve that distress? Will it do away with one single monopoly, or reduce the tribute we pay them? The banks, the railroads, the millionaires with big in comes, do not fear the Republican party It has done everything they have asked it to do. It does not propose any legis lation to check them in their robbery and enslavement of the people. It will do nothing to change conditions, nothing to increase the purchasing power of the producers or to limit wealth concentra tion. Therefore, in two years the long suffering people will be ready to hurl it, also, from power, and will give the law making power to the Populist party, if, in the mean time, we prove by deflnite ness of program and apparent wisdom and adequacy of our proposed legisla tion that we can restore to the people their equal rights, and the reign of justice. Just now the Populist party must see its opportunity and rise to make use of the occasion. The Democratic party is badly down. The Populist party exceeds it in numbers, if not in count of the ballots, in several southern states. The entire south is honeycombed with Popu list ideas. In the west and northwest the Populist party has secured either the first or second place. In spite of the tidal wave which elected Republicans the Populists cast this year nearly double their 1892 vote. But we greatly need to hold a council of war and rally all our forces for the coming battle. This is the more necessary because we are a young party and have not met in national con vention for more than two years. There- lore, we say, Jet Chairman Taubeneck and the executive committee call a na tional conference, to be held, say, about the middle of December, a conference of all the leaders of the party and the labor movement, including the members of our national committee, the chairmen of the state committees, the principal officers of all the farmers' and labor organizations, the editors of all Populist papers, all our standard bearers whether elected to office or not, and especially such men as Lyman Trumbull, John Clark Ridpath. B. O. Flower, Hamlin Garland and others. We ought to got together and after m. changing views map out a definite policy for our party both in congress and out. We ought to iuautrurate at once (after consulting together) an educational campaign for '95 and '06, to bring us up to our next national convention. A defi nite program is what we need. Without it.wecannotadvance. Wealsoneed the ad vertisement of a national conference, the inspiration of strong, aggressive leader ship and a vigorous plan of action. To keep our forces from weakening set them at work, give them something effective to do and show them the way to victory. Now is the time for our supreme effort. THE OBOWNING AOT OF INFAMY It is reported from New York, in the Associated Press dispatches that "the President is considering the idea of sub mitting to the country a plan for cur rensy reform,"--and we bejleve it. The American Bankers' Association and the Rothschilds placed Cleveland on the til rone to serve them, and he has done it from the start. They elected him to, first, call an extra session of Cbiigress to repeal the silver coinage law and, by pressure and patronage in his party, close the mints against silver; second, to force more bonds upon the people, by undelegated despotic power, and he is hard at it, one hundred millions being already sold and ordered sold; third, to recommend and lulp through the pass age of a banking bill that would bind us to a gold basis and take from the people their sovereign power to issue needed paper money without usury charge, in the interest of all. The Bankers' Asso ciation which recently met at Baltimore called for a law which would allow the bankers alone to exercise this sovereign power, to issue paper currency, cur rency which would cost them nothing be yond the labor of printing it. They ask that the government endorse their notes, to make them good, to the extent of fifty per cent on their paid up capital, and allow them to Issue twenty-five per cent more paper, which they could loan when crops were being moved. This would be a virtual gift to the banking class alone of loanable capital equal to three-fourths of what they now have, a gift to a class who are loudest in their condemnation ot paternalism, a gift to the rich, which would increase their power to oppress the poor. And Cleveland is said to favor the Baltimore plan. Without doubt during the next two years this Associated Bankers' plan, or one very much like it, will be enacted in to law, because Cleveland and the big Wall Street end of the Democratic party in Congress will favor it, and the Repub licans nearly all can be counted on to legislate for the bankers' and cor porations. It is the bankers' oppor tunity, the Congress and President they need to give them what they -want, and they will surely improve it. The people are yet mostly such willful idiots and blind misinformed partisans that they deserve bondage, a more and more grinding servitude to the Shylock class. They have brought it all on them selves by refusing to read and listen to anything except the demagogical utter ances of their own party. Butitseemsa pity that those who see the Sbylock schemes, and with much labor and sacri flee warn the people, should be dragged down with them into theslavery they re fuse to see. TheSliylock legislatien called for at Baltimore is provided for, and as good as granted already. It will be the crown ing and closing work of the thirty years enthroned Shylock class, an enactment that will bring on a crisis, a political up rising which will probably precipitate armed resistance to the people's will, as the slaveholders of '61 resisted. BOTH OLD PAETIE8 DID IT The New York Press accounts for ths landslide which buried the Democratic party thus: ""f was the accumulated ills, The smokeless chimneys of the mills, The spindles hushed, the silent looms, The life in cold and cheerless rooms, The tireless hearths, the tables bare, The lack of decent clothes to wear, The silent misery and the tears That marked the Democratic years, These were the things that did it." Yes, these are indeed the conditions and facts of the Democratic years, but the eavses of present destitution and dis tress extend back through the last third of a century of Democratic and Republican (chiefly Republican) rule. Not tariff high, nor tariff low, Has brought us all this weight of woe; But chartered powers and kings' decrees. The tribute paid monopolies, The wage unjust, the rent we've met, The interest on the loads of debt, And dividends, which left us poor, Unable to buy back the store Our labor piled in market place, To these our poverty we trace. These various plundering per cents Reduce our call for goods, and hence The wheels must stop and work must cease, And people starve while stocks decrease. In cycles thus the evils sweep, And men despair, and women weep. "The silent misery and the tears" Are found in each decade of years. O, long defrauded, understand: Both parties old have had a band In laws which desolate the land. THB REQUIREMENTS OF LOVE About a year ago I wrote an article for this paper, using the title, "Lead Us Out of Temptation." The response to what I have in the last two months proposed, the massing of our wisdom, energies, skill and resources in a new kind of cor poration to embody and give action to the spirit of love, the Christ spirit, shows us that the entangling labyrinth and "wilderness of Sin" may soon be placed behind us. We can see the way out, and the means. We have simply to combine and cross over Jordan, so to speak. It will be remembered that the Israelites might have entered the land of promise a generation before if that gene ration had had faith in God and courage to go forward. It requires faith in God now, as then. Since the last issue of The Wealth Makers a brother having a fine farm seven miles from Lincoln, a property worth 12,000 to $15,000, proposes that a beginning in love and its labors be made on his place, and a neighbor offers his smaller but excellent farm also, he tells us. The owners of these farms Offer the use only, the proposition being that ail that can be produced by ait working be equally divided. Use of natural resources and capital is really all we want, but we want that Secured in perpetuity. If we do not have the legal title in the name of all, in the Corporation we are to organize, we shall not be legally protected. We might go on to these lands with money and labor and erect buildings and make other valuable improvements, and the holder of the deed of the land would have legal claim to it all; and though the best man in the world he might die at any time and his heirs come in and take every thing from us and break up the commu nity, driving us forth by the power of his recorded parchment. No, it will not answer to invest money and labor on merely borrowed land. If the brothers who have offered the free use of their land, generous as this appears when measured by the world's standard, can not let go their land titles for a company title we cannot use ttmir capital., But a man does not become propertyless and unprovided for by joining a corporation and putting all bis property into it. His shares are worth more to him than his property apart would be. Much more will this be true in a Christian corpora tion where not selfishness but love will rule. Many of those with the best intentions and desires are still struggling with an indistinct, imperfect conception of what Tove requires, and they have what seems a neccessary distrust of the professed un selfishness of every other man. It is not safe to trust each other to be unselfish in the market place now, it matters not what our Sunday professions may be. The market code is a selfish one. But when we organize to love and serve one another in all our work and recreation, living as brothers, what have we to fear? We are not going to, as in the church, profeaa to love our neighbors as ourself; we are going to do it. Our religion is to be love In action. Our worship is to be work, the natural infinite energies freely joind with ours in producing all things useful and enjoyable revealing to us the heart of the Infinite, the God of love. rroaucing ail useiui, beautiful and en joyable things freely, lovingly, for each other, we shall bind ourselves together and to God in most delightful fellowship, interpreting God to each other and bring ing Him home to one another in all the labor of our hands and thoughts. How may we make a beginning? How may we bring ourselves into the king dom of love? I, for one, feel that the present each-for- himself struggle of life is sinful, that it is the source of all evils, and I feel conscience driven to get out of it. I see that the way to live is to join ourselves together, to do each what be can for all, and all to care for each. And if that is the right way to like, now is the right time to be gin to so live. Therefore I am ready and eager to give up all separate self-interest in what property I have and join band, head and heart and power to labor with anyone and every, one of like mind. Brothers, sisters, you who know that I have been describing the right way to live, will you join with me to start this new, divine, God-ordered organization, which in its growth will cover and trans form the whole earth, making it as heaven itself? We shall not in brief time do all this; but with a beginning made, a necessary beginning, it will be like plant ing anew the garden of Eden which shall in love and helpfulness and wealth and beauty extend its borders and increase to each individual its benefits until it shall include all nations, all lunds, and all conceivablegood. We must incorporate in order to per petuate the good of collective ownership of land and capital; in order to save our selves and children from the evils which flow from private property and the sel fish struggle which it entails; in order to escape the necessity of hoarding a pre sent surplus of capital while our brothers are unable to borrow it and must be idle and suffer in consequence. We might each retain what property we have and adopt a standard of living such as we as Christians or brothers must adopt, viz.f using an equal share of the whole yearly product of all our labor; and some of us who must find our employment for a time where we now are, with and for men in the selfish world, must begin our con nection with the Christian body (corpo ration) that way. But bo living the temptations to be selfish largely remain, and we can not introduce the labor economies much into such unchanged, selfishly patterned methods of work. In manufacturing it requires investment in buildings and other capital to employ men together. The first thing is to add ourselves and means together by incor porating, each turning into the incorpo ration treasury property or labor for a share of the stock. Money, or horses, or land, or stock and implements, what ever we have that is not being by us put to the most economic use, should be immediately put into such form as to em ploy most economically and effectively the labor of our members. Of the first Christian body it is written: "And all that believed were together and had all things common; and sold their possessions and goods and parted them to all, as every man had need. "Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were pos sessors of land or houses sold them and brought the prices of the things that were sold and laid them at the apostles' feet, and distribution was made as everyone had need." Put persecution scattered them; and scattered, dependent each on his single arm and mind In the world's selfish Struggle to live, they fell at last entirely J into the world's way; and the church, though now free tocointnttniae its capital and obey the requirements of love, has come to believe that the selfish individu. alism it has sanctioned by practice for bo many centuries is necessary ani right. Our articles of incorporation must be drawn up under the law, of the state, enabling us to hold property and do all forms of business as a body. Our by laws must state our brotherhood agree ments, which all who join us accept; pro vide for the elections of overseers for the different depart men Is of productive labor, public service in distribution, moral, mental and physical education, and for health, recreation, etc.; also for the sup port of those whose work it shall be to teach the outside world the good news of the way of salvation from want and anxiety, from selfishness and tyranny. The first step to be taken is the send ing in of your names who wish to be in corporated in the Christian brotherhood, wliiehirta-biJ common so as to provide work for all, and abundance to satisfy all present and future needB. Those who feel a deep interest, but who have questions to ask before they are ready to give in their names, we shall be glad to hear from. The necessity of recognizing our equality as brothers, and of sharing all our re sources, energies, skill and wisdom with one another, is fundamental. It Is obedience to the law, "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself." All other ques tions are then simple questions of how we may most economically produce for all and serve all. They are questions of detail that require knowledge and further study and invention in applying labor with the means at command.

"HE SHALL EISE AGAIN" Miss Elsie Duck man, ex-Secretary Ne braska F. A. &I. U., writing from Topeka to a lady friend iu Lincoln under date of November 16 says: Tell Brother Gibson that I should like to live in just such a "Paradise" as he f'ves us a "vision" of in the last paper, would just like to join some co-operative colony. I think it would be a sort of little heaven on earth almost. All right, Sister Elsie, your name is down as one of the first to register. It was a woman who was first at the sepulchre of the risen Christ. And it is a like event that you will be called to wit ness. The body of Christ, by which alone He can be known, has been broken and buried from sign t nearly eighteen centu ries, its so-called members being sel fishly severed, divided in their interests and dead to the voice of love. His separated members, which, divided, can not contain His spirit, "shall be gather ed limb to limb, and moulded with every joint and member into an immortal fea" ture of lovelinessand perfection." And by thus re-formiug the corporation or body of Christ we shall be answering His prayer: "That they all may be oue: as thou, Father, art in me and I iu thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me." MOST GLOfilOUS HOPES AWAKENED Another most interesting letter, called out by our recent editorials, we should like to print entire, but it is marked "pri vate." We think, however, the writer will not object if we clip some paragraphs from it, as follows: Brother Gibson: Though not per sonally acquainted with you l am sure, after reading you right along since your connection with our state paper, tnat I may call you brother. 1 have just read your " vision of Para dise" in j'our issue of the 8th. And it raises within me the most glorious hopes or the future of those who want to fol low Jesus. I have devoted about twenty years of my life to preaching in one of the ortho dox churches and the pa8t three years have been given almost exclusively to the effort of building up a Christian So ciology applying, so far as possible un der our competitive system, the teaching of Jesus to the every day life. All this last work has been done not as a pastor, but in a local way. One result has been that nearly all of the religious people in the community are also Christian Social ists. So, while reading your "Vision" and your answer to Brother Doty, the thought occurred to me that here would be a good place to get recrmts for the new society. It is evident to me, that the orthodox church has toadied to the money power io long that it will never tear itself loose; and that out of the old order must be es tablished a new, upon principles of a universal brotherhood. Yourplan strikes me as being in line with Christ's teachings an 1 every way worthy. There is one thing, however, that troubles me somewhat. And that is: I can see no place for men like myself who are no longer able to do manual labor, by reason of advancing age and general breaking up of health incident to a num ber of years' service in the last war. But that will not deter me from giving the nterprise my cordial support and what ever of influence I may have in inducing Others to join in with you, and I hope and pray that the plan may begin to materialize soon. No single letter or word that I have re vived has given me moreencouragement than the above. We shall have place for this dear, faithful brother, who has been sowing the seed for us to harvest. While he can he shall go on as now teaching the truths of the kingdom, and belping us to gather into our organiza tion those who would be saved from the world of selfish, warring individualism. A WHOLE SOCIETY INTERESTED Belvidere, Neb., Nov. 12, 1894. Editor Wealth Makers: There are several of us here who are very much interested in your efforts to establish an industrial colony wherein the second great command of Christ, "Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thy self," will have a practical application. We are all Christians, but have come to believe that the church has utterly failed of its duty, and through the centuries have been teaching the first part of the gospel, entirely ignoring the second and most important part tor tne conversion of the world. The most of humanity would soon be enlisted on the side of Christ if the sermons preached by the conduct of professed Christians were in perfect accord witn ills teachings, tnnst is not in the greed and grind to which our modern life is almost exclusively de voted; nor will long prayers, sanctimo nious conduct and devout airs cause Him to bless our merciless competition. Before Christ's presence can be hoped for we must return to thesimplecommunism of the primitive church. In one of your recent issues you asked for opinions at to the name the colony mere 18 iiiuuii ill aimuieiuraueuierpriBu. It is as a banner under which the people fight, and efforts are likely to be accord ing to its suggestion. For instance, a colony named Devilia would probably be given to all corruption and rapidly sink into a worthy home for the prince of liars. None should be accepted as members of this colony who are not thoroughly con verted to the belief that it is a person's divine privilege to love his neighbor as himself, and really desire to give expres sion to that belief in conduct worthy of a follower of Christ. The rule being adopted the question of monetary inter est according to the amount contributed would not be a troublesome one, as so many anticipate. If the colony becomes an established, success, and even permanency, will depend upon so many conditions that no one can now confidently say what the out come will be. But suppose dissolution should become necessary sometime in the course of years, the constitution of the colony should be such that each could then draw from the proceeds of the sale of the accumulated property the money he had contributed and ins proporiiuiiniK bum u v mainder. It is wisdom to foresee and pre pare for emergencies, in this cose, that under any circumstances perfect justice may flow to all. The Nationalist Society, of Belvidere, I do not have a single fear of a time coming when dissolution will be neces sary, when "the body of Christ" (our Christian corporation) will die, overcome by the powers of evil. What, is wisdom folly, and love unsafe? Will not love in action always bind us together, and i not the strength of many united greater than their strength as ununited, self centered individuals? Is it to be reckon ed a risk to take God's law and spirit as the labor-directing, life-controlling, society-organizing supreme will and wis dom? But we cannot serve God and mammon. Dear brothers and sisters, let us read to ether Matthew 6; 2434. Then, if we- still think it is better to keep a string on all the mammon we have lest God and God's people fail us, we may grapple with the problem of trusting God with out trusting Him, of giving up to Him and getting the benefit of giving up with out giving up. I say I have no fear of the body of the resurrected Christ dying. But in convey ing our property to the organization we may state for what purpose it is convey ed, and introduce a reversion contingent clause that shall return it to us if the stated objects of the organization are not carried out There is another con tingency, that of health, which should be considered. If at any time it becomes necessary for any of our members to go to a milder climate and it seems desirable for such to join a similar organization elsewhere, or even for a time to do aa best they can as a separate individual or family, they should have the benefit of a provision which would allow them to draw out as much as they put in. To those who feel thatdissensions may arise among those who must needs practice love, sufficient to make farther practice of love impossible, the present common law offers security. In the event of a majority of ua agreeing to crucify Christ afresh, or rather to tear Him limb from limb, we can get our thirty or more pieces of silver for so doing. But we shall never do it. I have Bpoken thus strongly not because the good brother writing the above needs to, have his faith increased (he evidently haa the faith), but to help others, who can not separate their imaginations from the present anarchic, Ishmaelitish environ ment, to think cleariy of the infinite, alL conquering power of 7ove in action, sucb as our organization is to provide for. Shall expect to hear more from this Belvidere Nationalist Society. "And the dark (ball b light. And th wrong b mad right!" TWO NOTEWORTHY BOOKS' Medeaeval Europe, by Ephraim Emer ton. Many a general reader as well as many a student has been often thankfnl for Prof. Emerton's formerbook, "Introduc tion to Study of Middle Ages." The intricacy of events, the rapidly shifting scenes, and, to the reader, the unnatural relation between the individual and the state, make the study in detail of medi aeval times very confusing to the general reader. This confusion was removed by the in troduction of "Mediaeval Europe" which builds on the foundation laid by the former book and gives a more extended' and precise view of those wonderful cen turies when the world seemed to be travailing in pain that she might give birth in due time to the achievements of. modern civilization. This book is written with care and" much learning, has a marginal index, bibliographies, a good general index, : and is written in a style that does not in the least obscure the main drift of events. It, with the former book, will be welcome to teachers and others who wish to get -some correct notion of the middle ages Published by Ginn & Co., Chicago & Bos-.-ton. An Introduction to THE Stcdy or Small and' Society, by Albion W. George E. Vincent. The growth of interest in Sociology is remarkable. It has been difficult for beginners, however, to follow any syste matic study of sociology for want of a guide. This book, therefore, will be wek corned by many people who, though dis claiming any notion of being scientists in any sense, have been close and startled observers of social events. The authors very properly point on 4i-fasfc Wiit there is tiwgreatest danger from pure destructive criticism of exist ing social conditions. He who tries to pull down only will leave society worse off than before. But, as is indicated in. this "Manual," there is just as much danger in constructive methods without a knowledge of the facts and principles of sociology. He who attempts success fully to apply a remedy must first make a correct diagnosis. A concise and inter esting history of the beginnings of the science is given, and the changes in the views of Mr. Spencer and the short com ings of his methods are clearly shown The book is short, is well calculated to give the very assistance now most need ed. Every teacher ought to be a student of social questions, as ought every lover of his country, and thisguideto a proper view of the facts and methods of the science canbe conscientiously recommend ed.
