'the lowest stratum of the slums of the
great cities. He thus describes theen
vironment and misery of those trampled
down and crowded under by the rich and
"Human misery is very much alike the
world over. In the submerged class we
find the man in the lowest depths of deg

first, we ascribe their condition to des
titution. Some of them are always hun
gry. They have lived and died aud all
but rotted in the streets. They lived in
the slums, and it is difficult to convey to
an audience like this what a slum really
is. - '
"You can imagine a dark and narrow
alley, hedged with lofty buildings, and
into which the light of the sun seldom, if

continually breed misery and disease. In
the dilapidated structures on either side
of these loathsome alleys are rooms in
which whole families are compelled to
live and die. One room for the man, wife
and children. One room in which to eat,
sleep, to be sick in, to die in and to lie in
until the undertaker comes with his hol
low shell to carry away the poor carcass
of humanity to its last resting place."
The General then drew several pictures
of life in the slums, such as would stir the
heart of adamant. In speaking of the
Jcheme of the Salvation army he said:
,j "The great question is, how can we help
jtyhese submerged classes? The Salvation
army scheme contemplates first of all,
work. We first find the man. We give
him a warm place to sleep for 2 cents,
with a piece of bread thrown in. For 2
cents more we give him a bath, with hot
and cold water, and towels. For anoth
er 2 cents we give him a (rood meal.
And, then we talk to him. We interest

deavor to convert him. We don't ask
rdum for his pedigree. We accept him as
we find him, dirty, drunken, miserable,
wretehd, and we lead him first to inde
pendence and then to salvation.
' "Our colonization scheme has worked
admirably. We have outside of London

of the slums can be done not only cheap

"We want to establish a place of refuge

the world, and from these places of refuge
,ve want to transfer the men and women

leaders to determine whether we are to
sink iuto-oblivion or riBe to a position
where we can shape the destiny of this
nation. Shall we, as a party, choose for
ourselves the results experienced by the
old Greenback party? Or shall we profit
by their experience? Just at the time
that party began to be felt as a fac
tor in the nation, the old parties, real
izing that something had to be done,
either to appease the wrath of the com
mon people, then arising in their might,
or lead them into a trap by which tl!y
wotild become harmless, they sought

As regards the second question, what,
as a party, have we done? I wish to say
that we have killed our would-be seducer,
or at least have so mangled bim, it, or
her whatever you wish to name it that
if we are a mind to we can either capture
that part of the enemy or drive it to the
other wing. And as far as we are con
cerned it would make but littledifference,
There are but two places for the voters
of America to go. The gold bug Demo
crats have already found shelter in the
Republican fold. All others will have to
go to the Peoples' party, unless wo throw
away our opportunity by fusion. Had
our party repudiated the Omaha nomin
ations and thereby compelled the Demo
crats to run their own machine, e
would have been off to-day. The result
of the election shows, to my mind, the
fact that at least half of the Democrats
(notwithstanding they endorsed most of
our ticket) voted for the Republican
candidates. I venture the statement
that there were more Democrats voted
for Majors thau for Holcomb. Had it
not been for the vote for Holcomb of dis
appointed Republicans Holcomb would
have shared the same fate of the rest of
the ticket. Had the Democrats thrown
half of their ordinary strength to that
part of our ticket which they endorsed,
they would have been elected by a safe
plurality. Counting the strength of the
Democrats iu the .state at 60,000,
thirty thousand of that vote given to
the nominees of their own party, iu con
nection with the Independent vote,
would have elected every one of them.
But the treachery of the World-Herald
iu advocating the election of a gold-bug
congressman, and the advice (as was
published in that sheet) of our state
committee for the Independents in Doug
las county to vote the Democratic ticket
Is this a fact? Editor Wealth Makers
lost us the respectofmany Republicansin
other parts of the state, that would have
voted with us, thus losing us votes we
otherwise would bawe got.
Let it be understood now, tlmtif w
are constantly going to run after either
of the old parties who have betrayed the
people aud have led us to the verge ol
bankruptcy, that we had just as wel!
quit. If our basic principles do not diffei
from other parties, why have we tried tc
organize another party on their founda
tion? This never has succeeded and
never will. Every intelligent People's
Party mau knows that every fundamen
tal principle underlying our reform
movemeut differs as widely from that oi
any other party as day from night.
Then why try to patch the old garment
with the new cloth? Or to put new wine
into old bottles? I have just as much
hope of securing the reforms we advocate
through the Republican party as the
Democratic. But measuriug my hope
from either source it is as nothing against
nothing. ' . ' . j
Now as to the future. Let ns declare
from this on, that we ask no quarter,
and give none. Let those that endorse
oupprinciples understand that they must
muster with our army or paddle their
own canoe. Until the old parties aban
don their present basis I will never run
for any office where any principle is at
stake under any endorsement from either
old party. I would far rather go down
under defeat than succeed wh( re there
would be the least compromise of prin
ciple. Thus far I have done what I could
in my bumble way to forward and build
up the cause of our party. And I expect
to do the same in the future, if our lead
ers will keep free from en tangling alliances
with other parties. Right here I wish to
say that Judge Holcomb can go far in
establishing the party upon an independ
ent basis. Should he in his appoint
ments, undertake to place in office Dem
ocrats instead of tried and true Inde
pendents, it will cast a shadow upon our
future success. There have been men
that have fought hard and long in our
ranks, who have made it possible for
such as he to occupy the highest position
in the gift of the people of Nebraska,
who ought to be given the preference,
and thus gather around him a force and
give hint a power that will help shape
the destiny of our party, and free it from
the elements of suspicion that wonld
otherwise rest upon it. Hoping the ship
will be steered clear of rocks of disaster,
I remain true to our principles.

That One Plank Party
The 0110 plank party can't be born.
There is no one to maintain and sus
tain the infant.
There never was a one plank party, and
probably never will be.
One idea won't run a nation like ours.
It takes more ideas than one to manage
Uncle Sam's business.
The Populists of Texas will not e.en
consider the one plank proposition.
While they favor the free coinage of
silver plank, they also favor other re
forms of greater importance.
The Colorado free silver people are
talking about a free silver party. They
had best organize a free silver party in
that state first before they attempt to
start a national party on that one issue.
If the silver plank people think they
can swallow the People's party they will
find, ou trial, they are a Jonah swallow
ing the whale.
There are 200,000 Populists in Texas,
and all of the single silver plank party
men among them can be counted 011 one's
fingers and have fingers left.
No change is needed. The Omaha
platform is good enough for the People's
party of Texas. If it can be engrafted on
to the government body, not only free
silver buds will grow, but a number of
others that will bear good fruit.
If the one plank free sliver party is de
signed to disconcert the Popu lists organ
ization it will fail. The Populists are
satisfied with their platform and with the
success it has achieved before the people.
They propose to keep right in the middle
of the road and forge ahead. Southern

IF CHRIST SHOULD COMB TODAY
BY JAMES U. CLARK.
I have come, and the world shall be shaken
Like a reed, at tbe touch of my rod,
And the klundotns of time shall awaken
To the voice of the summons of God;
No more through tbe din of the ages
Shall warnings and chiding divine.
From the lips ol my prophets and sages,
Be trampled like pearls before swine.
Ye have stolen my land and my cattle:
Ye have kept back from labor It meed;'
Ye have challenged the out-cants to battle, '
When they plead at your feet In their need.
And when clamor of hunger grew londer,
And the multitudes prsyed to be fed.
Ye have answered with prisons or powder,
Tbe cries of your brothers for bread.
I tarn from your altars and arches,
Aud the mocking of steeples and domes.
To Join in the long weary marches
Of the one ye have robbed ot their homes;
I share In the sorrow and crosses
Ot tbe nuked, the hungry and cold,
And dearer to me are their losses
Than your gains and your Idols ot gold.
I will wither the might of the spoiler,
I will lannh at your dungeons and locks.
The tyrant shall yield to (he toiler.
And your judges eat grass like tbe ox:
For the prayers of the poor have amended
To be written in lightnings on high.
And the wails of your captives have blended
With the bolts that mist leap from the sky,
Tbe thrones of your kings shall be shattered
And the prisoner and serf shall go tree;
I will harvest from seed that I scattered
On the borders of blue Galilee;
For I come not alone, aud a stranger
Lo! my reapers will sing through the night
Till the star that stood over the manger "
Shall cover the world with it light.

Study the questions of land, finance
and transportation, the three essential
planks of the People's party platform.
The air is vibrant with athousandand
one reform remedies, not incorporated in
the platform, some good, others ques
tionable and still others that are both
impracticable and bad, but none of
which have received the endorsement of
the People's party. Do not let these
confuse you, they have at this time no
place on the party program.
Populism is a power today all over
these United States. Don't weaken it.
Don't credit it with reforms not men
tioned in the platform. To you and us
they may appear to have superior merit,
but not so by the majority of the party.
In advocating the principles, of the
party be reasonable, dispassionate, ac
curate, firm. You will thus disarm pre

weighed and considered.

no brass bands to distract your hearer,
no spread eagle orators belching forth
sophistries, no hectic hued oil cloth capes
and tin helmets to dazzle the eye. None
of that. Just yourself and friendly
neighbor reasoning together in a quiet,
practicable, sensible way.
For the next eighteen months the old
parties will be fighting over the spoils o)
office. If we are wise we will take advan
