There is no hope of relief from the conditions that now cwse the
American people, until both of the old parties have been destroyed. They
are the willing and subservient tools of corporate power, and are utterly
unable to perform a single noble and patriotic act. This is the sentiment
that is breathed forth by every line and picture in Vox Populi, the
illustrated Populist paper that is now producing such a political sensation
throughout the United States, and from the columns of which the above
cut is taken. . -

HILL'S POLITML HISTORY OF THE
UNITED STATES.
By Thomas E. HilL
This Is a large octavo book of 450 pages, condensed by tabulation
into a small book that it may be universally sold and circulated at a
low price. .
Its purpose is to clearly present, in a manner entirely non-partisan,
the merit attaching to each party. Na partiality is shown in behalf
of any political organization. Like the dictionary, it simply defines.
It gives the best-known argument in favor of each, and leaves the
reader free to choose which he will serve.
It treats upon the important live issues of the time, and is an indis
pensable work to people who would intelligently discuss the political
situation. It is a very exhaustive compendium of Political Facts,
and literally answers thousands of questions. To illustrate:
What are Democratic principles?
What does a single-tax advocate propose'
If all tax was placed on land, what would
be the tax on the farm!
What would be the tax on suburban prop,
erty, and how much on the acre worth two
million dollar In the center of the city I
i.
What does a Republican believe!
Why be a Republican and favor high pro
tective tariff I
What ate ? arguments for and against
protection!
What do the Socialists wantf
What wouM be tbe condition If NsiatisMa
principles prevailed!
What do the Populists desire!
If government owned and operated the
banks, and banks never failed, and people
never hid their money and all money came
out and Into active circulation, and money
was so abundant that Interest became low,
and all enterprise started up and everybody
had employment, what then!
What do the Nationalists wantf
Why nationalize the railroads, the coal
mines and various Industries!
What do the eipht-hour advocates pro
pose! If working certain hours yields cer
tain profit, how could working less hours
yield more profit!
How could women be benefited by voting!
What started the financial panlo of 1893!
Who commenced the tirade against silver,
that resulted In the repeal of the Sherman
law!
Who started the stampede on the banks in
1893, by which 714 of them failed In eight
months, and four hundred million dollars

PEOPLE S PLATFORM.
Adopted by the Convention at Om
aha Nebraska, July 4, 1803.
Assembled upon the one hundred and
sixteenth anniversary of the Declaration
of Independence, the People's Party of
America, in their first national conven
tion, invoking upon their action the
blessings of Almighty God, puts forth in
the name, and on behalf of the people of
the country, the following preamble and
declaration of principles:
Tbe conditions which surround ns best
justify our co-operation; we meet in the
midst of a nation brought to the vents
of moral, political and material ruin.
Corruption dominates the ballot box,
the legislatures, the Congress, and
touches even the ' ermine of the
bench. The people are demoralised;
most of tbe states have been compelled
to isolate the voters at the polling places
to prevent universal, intimidation or
bribery. The newspapers are largely
subsidized or muzzled; public opinion
silenced; business prostrated; our homes
covered with mortgages; labor impover
ished; and the land concentrating in the
hands ' o! the capitalists. The urban
workmen are denied the right of organi
sation for sell-protection; imported pau
perized labor beats down .their wages; a
hireling army, unrecognized by bur law,
is established to shoot them down; and
they are rapidly degenerating into Euro
pean conditions. The fruits of the toll of
millions are boldly stolen to build up
colossal fortunes forafew,unprecedented
in the history of mankind, and the pos
sessors of these in turn despise the re
public and endanger liberty. From the
same prolific womb of governmental in
justice we breed the two great classes
tramps ana millionaires.
The national power to create money
is appropriated to enricn bondholders; a
vast public debt, payable in legal tender
currency, has been funded into gold-bear
ing bonds, thereby adding millions to
the burdens of tne people.
Silver, which has been accepted as coin
since the dawn of history, has been de
monetized to add to the purchasing pow
er of Rold, by decreasing the value of all
forms of property, as well as human la
bor, and the supply of currency 1b pur
posely abridged to fatten usurers, bank
rupt enterprise, and enslave industry. A
vast conspiracy against mankind has
been organized on two continents, and
it is rapidly taking possession of the
world. If not met and overthrown at
nee it forebodes terrible social convul
sions, the destruction of civilization, or
the establishment of an absolute despot
ism. We have witnessed for more than
a quarter of a century the struggles of
the two great political parties for power
and plunder, while grievous wrongs have
been inflicted upon tne suffering: people.
We charge that the controlling iufluencs
dominating both these parties have per
mitted tne existing dreadful conditions
to develop, without serious effort to
prevent or restrain them.
Neither do they now promise us any
substantial reform. They have agreed
together to ignore, in the coming cam
paign, every issue but one. They pro
pos to drown the outcries of a plundered
people with the uproar of a sham battle
over the tariff; so that capitalists, corpo
rations, national banks, rines. trusts.
Watered stock, the demonetization of eil-"
er, and the oppressions ef tbe usurers
may all be lost sijrht of. They propone
to sacrifice our homes, lives and children
on the altar of Mammon; to destroy the
multitude in order to secure corruption
funds from the millionaires. Assembled
on the anniversary of the birthday of
tne nation, and niied with, tne spirit of
the grand generation of men, who estab
lished our independence, we seek to re
store the government of the Republic to
tne nands 01 "tne plain people," with
whose class it originated. We assert our
purposes to be identical with the purpose
of the national constitution: "to forma
more perfect union, establish justice, in
sure domestic tranquility, providefor the
common defense, promote the general
welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty
ourselves and our posterity."
We declare that this republic can onlv
endure as a free government while built
upon the love of the whole peoplefor each
other and for the nation; that it cannot
be pinned together by bayonets, that the
civil war is over and that every passion
and resentment which crew out of it must
die with it; and that we must be in fact,
as we are in name, one united brother
hood. Our country finds itself confront
ed by conditions for which there is no
precedent in the history of the world.
Our annual agricultural productions
amount to billions of dollars in value,
which must within a few weeks or months
be exchanged for billions of dollars of
commodities consumed in their produc
tion; tne existing currency supply is
holly inadequate to make thisexchanire.
The results are falling: prices, the forma
tion of combines and rings, and the im
poverishment of theproduuingclass. We
pledge ourselves that if given power we
will labor to correct these evils by wise
and reasonable legislation, in accordance
with the terms of our platform.
We believe that the powers of jrovern-
ment in other words, of the people-
should be expanded (as in the case of the
postal service) as rapidly and as far as
the good sense of an intelligent people,
and the teachings of experience, shall
justify; to the end that oppression, in
justice and poverty shall eventually cease
in the land.
While our sympathies as a party of re
form are naturally upon the side of every
proposition which will tend to make men
intelligent, virtuous and temperate, we
nevertheless regard these questions im
portant as they are as secondary to the
great issues now pressing for solution;
and upon which not only our individual
prosperity, but the very existence of free
institutions depends; and we ask all men
to first help us to determine whether we
are to have a republic to administer, be
fore we differ as to the conditions upon
which it is to be administered; believing
that the forces of reform this day organ
ized will never cease to move forward un
til every wrong is righted and equal pri
vileges established for all the men and
women of this country.
We declare, therefore,
UNION OF THE PEOPLE.
First, That the union of the labor
forces of the United States this day con
summated, shall be permanent and per
petual; may it spirit enter into all hearts
for the salvation of the republic and the
uplifting of mankind.
Second, Wealth belongs to him who
creates it; and every dollar taken from
industry, without an equivalent, is rob
bery. "If any man will not work neither
shall he eat." The interests of rural and
civic labor are the same; their enemies
are identical.
Third. We believe that the time has
come when the railroad corporations
will either own the people or the people
must own the railroads; and should ths
government eater upon the work of own
ing and managing the railroads, we
should favor an amendment to tbe con
stitution by which all persons engaged
In the government service shall be pro
tected by civil service regulations of ths
most rigid character, so as to prevent
the increase of the power of the national
administration by ths use of such addi
tional gonernment employes.
FINANCE.
We damand a national currency, safe,
sound and flexible; issued by tbe general
government only; a full legal tender for
all debts public and orivate; and that
witnont tne use 01 banmngcorporations;
a just equitable and efficient means of
distribution direct to the people, at a tax
not to exceed 2 per cent per annum, to
be provided as set forth in the sub-treasury
plan of the Farmers' Alliance, or
some better system; also by payments in
discharge of its obligations for public
improvements:
We demand free and unlimited coinage
of silver and gold at ths present legal
ration of 16 to 1.
We demand that the amount of k cir
culating medium be speedily increaseojto
not less than 50 per capita.
We demand a graduated income tax.
We believe that the money of ths
country should be kept, as much as pos
sible, in the hands of the people; and
hence we demand that all state and na
tional revenues shall be limited to the
necessary expenses of ths government,
economically and honestly administered.
We demand that postal savings banks
beestablished by the government for the
safe deposit of the earnings ot the people
and the facilitation of exchange.
TRANSPORTATION.
Transportation being a means of ex
change and a public necessity; the gov
ernment should own and operate the
railroads in the interest of the people.
The telegraph and telephone, like the
postofflce system, being a necessity, for
the transinissionof news, should be owned
and operated by the government in ths
interests of the people.
; LANDS.
The land, including all natural re
sources of wealth, is the heritage of the
people, and should not be monopolized
for speculative purposes; and alien owner
ship of land should be prohibited. All
land now held by railroads and other
corporations in excess of their actual
needs, and all lands now owned by
aliens, should be reclaimed by the gov
ernment and held for actual settlers
only.
RESOLUTIONS.
The following resolutions were offered
independent of the platform, and were
adopted, as expressive of tbe sentiments
of the convention:
Resolved, That wedemandafree ballot
and a fair count in all elections, and
pledge ourselves to secure to it every
legal voter without federal intervention
through the adoption by the states of
the unperverted Australian secret ballot
system.
Resolved, That therevenuederivedfrom
a (rraduated income tax should be appu
ed to tbe reduction of tbeburdenof taxa
tion now levied upon the domestic m
dustries of this couutry.
Resolved, That we pledge our support
to fair and liberal pensions :o sx-Union
soldiers and sailors.
Resolved, Tha we condemn the fallacy
of protecting American labor under the
present system, which opens our ports to
the pauper and criminal classes of the
world, and crowds out our wage-earners
and we denounce the present ineffective
law against contract labor, and demand
the further restriction of undesirable
immigration.
ttesoived, That we cordially sympa
thize with tbe efforts of ore am zed work
ingmen to shorter the hours of labor and
demand a rigid enforcement of the exist
ing eight-hour law on government work.
and ask that a penalty clause be added to
said law.
Resolved, That we regard the main
tenance of a large standing army of
mercenaries, known as the Pinkerton
system,.as a menace to our liberties, and
ws demand its abolition, and wecondemn
tbe recent invasion of the Territory of
Wyoming by the hired assassins of
Plutocracy, assisted by Federal officers,
itesolved.. That we commend to the
thoughtful consideration of the people
and the reform press, the legislative sys
tem known aa the Initiative and Keleren
dam. - ,
Resolved, That we favor a constitu
tional provision limiting the office 01 a
president and vice president to one term,
and providing for tbe election of the
senators by a direct Tote of the people.

Guthrie, Ok., Feb. 19 The most
disastrous railroad wreck known on
this division in many years occurred
at midnight Saturday on the Santa
Fe at the curve known as "Deadman'a
Cut," five miles south of Guthrie and
a half mile north of Seward. It was
caused by a terrific collision between
the south bound Santa Fe passenger
train and the north-bound stock ex
press and was due, it is said, to the
engineer of the freight placing a
wrong construction on his orders.
Two men were killed and sixteen in
Jured, seven seriously. Seventy head
of cattle were killed and $40,000
worth of rolling stock was destroyed.
The dead are:
Charles Upleby, engineer freight
train, of Arkansas City.
Patrick Coldron, fireman on pas
senger train, of Arkansas City.
Injured trainmen A. llahn, Pur
cell, legs crushed; Mail Clerk iiutch
lns, Topeka, Kan., head badly cut;
Express Messenger It. D. Deagle, body
badly bruised; Passenger Conductor
Edward Kitchen, of Arkansas City,
hand mashed and body badly bruised;
James Moorman, of Arkansas City,
freight conductor, arms broken; Bag
gageman Oeorge Neville, Newton,
Kan., badly scalded; Roadmaster
McKinney, Wichita, Kan., terribly
bruised; A. ' J. Graves, of Purcell,
freight brakeman, arms dislocated.
Passengers injured Harry Trower,
Kansas City, cut in neck and face; L.
B. Weidenheimer, Fort Worth. Texas,
badly cut on face and body; .Mrs.
Agatha Hardy, St Louis, Mo., face
cut by glass; Associate Justice Scott,
of Oklahoma supreme court, bruised;
John Hock Ardmore, cut by flying
pieces of glass; ex-District Clerk K.
L Collins, of Enid, legs badly bruised;
Bridgemen John J. English and II. A.
6prow, bodies lacerated.
The stock train had been made tip
at Purcell and Engineer Upleby had
received orders to sidetrack at Sew
ard and wait for the south bound pas
senger. According to the stories told
by his brake men, the orders were
misinterpreted and the train of eigh
teen cars loaded with Texas cattle
owned by Harry Trower passed Sew
ard at a flying rate.
As soon as the passenger engineer
sighted the freight rounding the
curve at Dead Man's cut he Immedi
ately reversed his engine, bat he was
too late. The crash was a terrific
one. Both engines .struck head on
and were completely demolished.
Both the engineer and fireman of the
passenger jumped the former es
caped but the latter, Pat Coldron, was
caught in the flying debris and
scalded. His death agonies were
awfuL The mail and baggage ears
of the passenger left the track and
were smashed, but luckily the coaches
kept tbe traeir and , the passengers
were bnt slightly hurt The messen
ger and baggagemen, however, were
severely hurt. '
Six cattle cars left the track and
almost every head of stock In them
were either killed or injured. It is
estimated that seventy head of cattle
were killed. Immediately after the
wreck trainmen walked to Guthrie
and took a yard engine to the scene of
the wreck. The killed and wounded
were placed on board the coaches
and the train was brought back to
Guthrio at 2:50 o'clock yesterday
morning. Freight Engineer Upleby
remained with his engine and was
horribly mangled while his fireman,
A. ilahn, jumped and escaped with a
broken arm.
The scene at the wreck is terrible.
Engines, cars, rails, ties and dead
cattle are jumbled together in an un
recognizable mass, with the bellows
of dying cattle adding distress to the
scene. Both engines were totally de
molished and all togetbsr the loss of
rolling stock will reach $40, 000.
SHOT
IN HIS CELL.
A Mob of Maeked .Men Kill a Kerr
Murderer at Kingston, Mo.
Kingston, Mo., Feb. 19. About 2
o'clock yesterday morning a mob of
masked men, supposed to be negroes
from Hamilton, surrounded the sher
iff's house and jail here, caught and
bound Sheriff Goldsworthy, whose
deputy was away, took the keys from
him and gained entrance to the jail
corridor with the avowed purpose of
taking out and hanging George Tracy,
a negro who shot and killed his wife
at Hamilton, in this county, on the
morning of January 3o.
On the inside the mob were nnable
to get into the steel cell in which he
was confined with two other negro
prisoners. Tracy crawled under his
bed, and the mob began shooting
through the bars of the cell door, and
succeeded in putting six bullets into
his body, killing him instantly.
The sheriff made all the resistance
he could but was overpowered. The
two prisoners in the cell with Tracy
escaped unhurt Tracy was a bad
character aud had lately served a jail
sentence here for shooting a negro
man. He had some years ago lost
both his legs just below the knee, be
ing run over by a train which he was
trying to board to escape some Kan
sas officers.
