TIIE WEALTH MAKERS.
Letters from over the state report
infue trn half great destitution. , A
friend iu Boone county writes that the
people have no crops, no money ana no
way of getting money. The question
with tens of thouands is, how are we
going to get through the winter?
The Carlisle financial plan provides no
security for depositors and no adequate
government security against bank fail
ures, which in time of panics, at leasti
would get away with the five per cent re
demption fund in short order.

The following sample notices given
' Armageddon show bow it is appreciated:
ARMAGEDDON, or the final battle between
the wealth-maker and the wealth-takers.
This is a splendid collection of stirring
and patriotic songs with music. It con
tains 140 pages and over 60 songs set to
music besides a dozen not set. A number
of these same songs have been sold by us
at 20 cents each. These songs are George
Howard Gibson's best. Price, post paid
85 cents, or $3.60 a dozen.--American
Aemagkddon is the name of a new song
book published by "The Wealth Makers
Publishing Company," of Lincoln, Neb.,
at 35 cents a copy. Armageddon is by
far the best book of its kind it has ever
been our pleasure to examine. ' The book
contains 70 songs, 57 of which are set to
music, and every one is a gem. There is
no ctfiaff in the whole book. The songs
r aretrong and ably written, while the
I music is oi iiib verjr m-ni. umm mm
Sard Gibson, editor of The Wealth Mak
ers, is the author. His name is never
attached to any second class literary
production. There is ever an elevated
tone to his writings. His newspaper is
one of the very best reform papers in
existence and Armageddon is, we think,
decidedly the best book of songs any
Alliance or labor organization can possi
bly find. The Sledge Hammer, Meadville

Now is the time to make good use of
Armageddon. It ought to be in every
Populist's home. If our songs areevery
where sung, made popular, onr cause
will speedily succeed. Let singing clubs
be formed to master the music of this
book. None finer or more effective has
ever been written. "God Save the Peo
ple" is a mightily stirring piece in both
music and words. "Our Line of Defense"
is another thrilling song set to the finest
patriotic air of Germany, "Die Wacht
Am Rhein." But we have not space to
t tell of the merits of each one of, the 70
rsongs which the book contains. Hunio-
roue, pathetic, thrilling, awakening, en"
thusing, calling forth all that is manly
and noble, all love of right and justice,
and marshalling the hosts to battle, it
should be sent for and made use of by all
earnest men ; and women now. Get
ready this winter to sing these industrial
gospel songs everywhere.

The Golden Fetich
Editor W ealth Makers:
We need no further evidence to prove
how firmly we still cling to the remnants
and relics of a barbarous age than in our
submission to the money power, whom
we allow to bind us as bond-servants to
the gold standard.
It would be amusing were the effects not
so serious, to hear the average Republi
can prate so glibly about the superiority
the gold dollar, his desire to see the
silver dollar its equal, and one dollar "as
good as every other dollar," and then
witness their dramatic pose as they
throw up their hands in holy horror,
when you talk of restoring silver to its
old-time place at the ratio of 16 to 1, as
the mention of this produces a spasm o,
agony, and they cry out," Why this would
drive all the gold out of the country!"
You would suppose from this expression
that notonly thepropertyof thecountry,
but its very life depended on the reten
tion of the yellow metal, that the arth
would not respond to the influi A of
nature in her fruitful seasons, nor to the
labor of the husbandman, if this fetich
hould take wings for Europe and Asia
That without it, all enterprise, alf
learning, every avenue of tide and com-
erce would be checked and blocked, and
tha such a thing as material, intellec
tual and spiritual progress would be im
possible. Verily! verily! this class of mind reminds
us of the poet who thus speaks of gold:
"Gold! many halted, sweat and bled for
Goldl and wh' was this nllnrement?
Dost toon askT A dnst On from the
Bowel of the earth, which being; cast Into
The Are, came oat a shining thlDfr,
Which fools admired, and called a pod.''
Thee worshipers of this fetich forget
that Mr. Cleveland expressed this same
yi fear in bis famous silver letter, and yet,
Sxiotwit'.istanding the continued coinage
fender the Bland-Allison act, our stock of
i gold continued to increase, and to that
I extent that the infallible Grover had to
.concede bis mistake.
They also forgotthatgoldcannotleave
tn viruilkijr unless lb uuva UIIU III I
.'flings, either by replacing it wit li other
equally good money for purposes of trade,
or by paying off some of our forrign in
debtedness, and stopping to that extnnt
the foreign drain of interest, neither of
which could possibly take place. The
former is out of the question, as Knnie
today has a dearth oisilverforsubsidiHt-.v
purposes, and they are too shrewd to
sacrifice the difference in ratios. The
latter is equally so, as American securi
ties are too good to cancel. They also
forget that gold is in no sense essential
to industrial and commercial prosperity,
that in times of national distress it al
ways plays the coward and traitor, and
asvhigh authority from the g. o. p. side
ax Venn J. Ingalls affirms thut "in times
national adversity it is not only the
jj-iost cowardly and treacherousof all the
jnriain, uui m 111 chub wur never pnysn
iX'ldieror sailor; that it breaks everv
yty it makes; sooner or later betrays
;;wiend; prospers mosfiu the dark-
oi tne nation s distress: openly
affiliates with our enemies; and yet, when
the war is over and all danger past, this
skulking coward, treacherous friend, and
base traitor, comes forth from its hiding
place and claims the victory."
This was the infamous role it played in
the years of the great rebellion and a
long time thereafter, and in spite of its
treason which' was blacker and far more
ostly and cruel than that of the South
ern Confederacy, we put down the rebellion
preserved the union, abolished chattel
ilavery, and emerged from the conflict,
as a people, nearly free from individual
indebtedness ana in the midst of indus
trial and commercial prosperity.
Such also was the industrial and com
mercial status of England for" 25 years
without any metal money, or only in a
very trifling degree, through all the
Napoleonic and other wars from 1792 to
While it is true that gold is well enough
as one of the money metals so long as
the people love the silly baubles .for a
money use, its holding the position as
the only primary money in which all
other forms is to be redeemed and in
which all, or principally all contracts are
to be based, make it the most dangerous
enemy of all legitimate industrial and
commercial pursuits, and as a domestic
form of money the most objectionable.
This for several reasons; first, it enables
the money power to iot only control the
volume, but to regulate its value by
sectional contraction of it and all other
forms based thereon, or by spasmodic
inflation; the former enabling them to
secure the surplus of labor at unproduc
tive rates, and the latter creating a high
speculative market for them to unload
and sell to new purchasers for more in
actual cash than they paid, and take
new mortgages for one-third or one-half
the selling price. Now in opposition to
this gold craze we find as high authority
as Prof.Jevons of Oxford University .say
ing, that for a domestic currency there is
no form of money equal to an incouver
tible paper currency, if confined within
the limits of the actual needs of trade;
and for this reason among others, that
the inflow or outflow of the precious
metals would not affect trade one way
or another, but would leave it stable
This is good Populist doctrine, and if
adopted by the issue of greenbacks and
the restoration of silver at the ratio of
16 to 1, till we reached $50 per capita
the gold worshipers , would be few, no
issue of bonds would be needed, the rob
bery of Wall and Threadneedle streets
would be largely stopped, and an era of
prosperity sot in to stay, and the blind
adherents of the g. o. p. and its annex
the Cleveland ites, would begin to see
their long time folly in worshiping the
yellow feitch and would reach the conclu
sion of John Ruskin who says, "If all the
money of the capitalists in the whole
world were destroyed, the notes and bills
burnt, the gold irrecoverably buried, and
all the machines and apparatuses of
manufacturers crushed, by a mistake in
signals in one catastrophe, and nothing
remained but the land with its animals
and vegetables, and buildings for shelter,
the poorer population would be very
little worse off than they are this instant
and their labor instead of being 'limited'
by , the destruction would be greatly
stimulated. They wonld feed themselves
from the animals and growing crops;
heap here and there a few tons of iron
and stone together, build rough walls
around them and get a blast, and in a
fortnight would have iron tools -again
and be ploughing and fighting as usual.
"It is only we who had the capital who
would suffer; we should not be able to
live idle as we do now, and many of us,
I, for instance, should starve at once.
This great thinker and writer under
stood just how the capitalistic class
ibsorb the surplus wealth of labor, and
taw already that if the people were as
united to secure on an ethical basis the
(ruits of their own toil, snch a thing as
making a fetich of gold would be un
(nown, and the industrial serfdom that
ixists to day as the result of the gold
standard, and all that appertains to it,
9y enabling the money power to control
:he volume and fix prices, would be a
ching of the past,
