By new subscribers, we mean people who are not now taking The Wealth Makers. If you love your family if
you love your home, if you love Liberty, if you love the People's Party of Nebraska, help us to circulate the paper that
is doing more than any other one thing to educate the voters of the state. Both the old parties have proven themselves
incompetent and unworthy. They have been " weighed in the balance and found wanting," and the People's Independent
Party must now take the lead. It is already the second party in numbers in eleven states and, if its members do their
whole duty, we shall sweep the country in '96!

good speaker and have none whom you can get right now, write us, and if possible, we will send you one.' Let every one
of our readers see how many voters he can get to take advantage of our Campaign offer!

THE SINGLE ISSUE 'AGAIN.

If any one doubts that the single
issue of financial reform is on, a glance
through the populist exchanges would
be convincing. With the exception of
less than hall a dozen papers and Mr.
Morgan and Kellogg's ready prints,
they are all taking hold in dead ear
nest What a fight they will bo mak
ing inside of the next two months, and
what a fund of solid, reliable informa
tion they will be sending out among
the people. Had the St Louis confer
ence last fall declared for such a con
test how grandly we would be work
ing at this time. Had the conference
declared in favor of making financial
reform the issue for the present cam
paign we would now be driving every
thing before us. and gathering recruits
by the thousands. The logic of events
have forced the issue, and the populist
papers, as a rule, have the good sense
and judgment to meet the issue square
ly. We do not believe the people will
stand much more nonsense from the
few irreconcilables, and unless thoy get
in line at once they will be destroyed.
The time for temporising has passed,
auu the time for honest work has come,
Let each be judged by the character of
his service. National Watchman.
There are none so blind as those who
will not see. Perhaps the Watchman
has trimmed its exchange list, as it has
its platform, and only reads such jour
nals as have abandoned all the Omaha
platform except the free silver section.
There has been no such change in the
populist press as the Watchman insin
uates. Our papers have always kept
the financial issue prominent and do so
Bull, but to assert that they are now
fighting on "the single issue of financial
reform" is false. Not a single populist
newspaper in the United States with a
national circulation has taken that
course, but all are honestly and ably
advocating the full measure of the
Omaha platform and demanding the
emancipation of labor, not the crown
ing of capitalism.
Hie contemptible sneers of the
Watchman at W. S. Morgan and Oeorge
C Ward should arouse the indignation
of all edit6rs who love fair play. These
men are among our bravest champions
and most powerful writers. Because
they refused to be side-tracked on the
free silver siding, this Washington
cabal seeks to destroy them. Their
work has been honest and strictly in
line with our platform.
As for the threat that unless the
"few irreconcilables" wheel "into line
at once they will be destroyed," that
would be humorous if it were not so
serious. Who is going to destroy these
independent editors? And who is to
dictate to them what they shall say
and how they shall say it? We do not
believe the people's party is just ready
to take its orders from Washington.
We send men there to obey, not to
But go ahead, Mr. Watchman. When
you get the heads of the irreconcilable
editors chopped off fetch them around.
We would like to look at them. Mean
while, hurrah for the emancipation of
labor and down with capitalism. That
is what the Omaha platform means, or
else it is a humbue. Dakota Rural 1st
I am not only nnder many obliga
tions to Brother Loucks for his kind
defense of me, but I am also glad that
he clipped the item from the Watch
man, as it affords me a chance to judge
of the present attitude of a paper
which he editor no longer sends me.
The Watchman deserves to rank
with Artemus Ward's "Komical Knss."
For many weeks past I have had a
leading article upon the financial
question each week in the Kellogg
page, while almost the entire page is
weekly devoted to the "monejr ques
tion." What more can a poor mortal
do, and what ails the Watchman? I
will explain. The Watchman is not
content that the money question shall
be the leading issue, but also demands
that he shall define what the money'
question is. That's different, you see.
These "single issue" men want the
money question, or the "single issue
of financial reform." to be defined as
consisting of the free coinage of silver
and the issue of all "paper promises to
pay coin" by the government. Such
an issue as that bears no semblance to
the financial plank of the Omaha plat
form. Not only so, but it leaves out
the most ' vital essence of such
plank. My interpretation of the finan
cial demands of the Omaha platform is
this: Gold and silver money, freely
coined at 16 to 1 and full legal tender,
absolute, paper money, all issued
direct to the people by the govern
ment at a rate of interest of 2 per
cent or less, through a system of gov
ernment banks of deposit, loan and
There is nothing in common between
these two definitions of the "money
question." The one destroys interest,
takes away from money Its "power to
oppress," emancipates the nation from
the rule of metallism and does away
with all possibility of future panics.
The other simply restores the condi
tions under which the panic of 1857
and previous panics took place; leaves
the clutch of usury upon the throat of
industry, firmly enthrones the bi-devils
of metallism and postpones "financial
reform" for a generation. Better de
feat, upon a platform demanding a
scientific monetary svstem, with the
free coinage of silver fairly defined as
merely a temporary expedient, than
victory upon a platform affirming the
primary money" fallacy of Coin's
Financial School. Free silver, nar
cotic like, may stupefy, while robbers
despoil and liberty is destroyed, and
as a palliative may ease and soothe,
while the disease attains a more firm
foothold, but is it not better that the
patient shall be allowed to suffer until
he is willing to undergo an operation
and have the cancers, metallism and
interest, cut out by the roots?
The Omaha platform is the srrandest
document of modern times, and "the
sub-treasury plan of the Farmers' Alli
ance" has within it the germs of true
financial reform. I shall continue to
advocate and defend them. .
So far as is concerned the assertion
that populist papers have abandoned
all Issues but that of financial reform,
I must say that all the papers I see are
In "the middle of the road" and de
fend and advocate the land and trans
portation planks of the Omaha plat
form as freely and firmly as they do
the finance plank.
So far as are concerned the Watch
man' threats, they are liable, like
chickens, to come borne to roost The
Watchman is trying to obstruct
the march of a mighty army, and if he
does not get out of the way be will be
trampled under foot Bat not only is
the Watchman trying to obstruct the
progress of civilization, he is not even
awake and alert, but seems to be lying
in the road while taking a Rip Van
Winkle sleep. He should wake no and
listen to the latest estimate of what ha
is pleased to term "vaararies." and
learn how equitably discounted are his
pet phrases "paternalism" and "socialism."
The graduating law students of Yale
college at their commencement in
June were addressed by Associate Jus
tice Henry B. Brown, of the United
States supreme court, who shocked the
country with his dissenting opinion in
the Income tax case a few weeks ago.
This college address was on the sanM
subject, though more extended.
Justice Brown traced social and mer
cantile development in the century.
Then he dealt with municipal corrup
tion, corporate greed, and touched on
the labor question. Among other
things, he said:
"While I feel assured that the social
disquietude does not point to the de
struction of private property, it is not
improbable that it will result in the
gradual enlargement of the functions
of government and to the ultimate
control of natural monopolies. If the
government may be safely intrusted
with the transmission of our letters
and papers, I see no reason why it may
not also with our telegrams and par
cels, as is almost universally the case
in England, or with our nassenirera -
ad freight, a state ownership. of ail-
ways, as in Uermany, France, Austria,
Sweden and Norway. If the state
owns Its highways, why may it not
also own its railways? If a munici
pality owns Its streets and keeps them
paved, seweredand cleansed, why may
it not also light them, water them and
transport its citizens over them?
'Such at least is the tendency of
modern civilization in nearly every
civilized state but our own, whose
great corporate interests, by parading
tne bugbears of 'paternalism' and 'so
cialism,' have succeeded in securing
franchises which properly belong to
the public. The fear, too, that these
mohopolies might be used for political
purposes has hitherto proved an in
superable objection to their exercise
by the state, but the development of
civil service reform has of late been so
rapid and satisfactory that its intro
duction into this new field of useful
ness would follow as a matter of
course, and would obviate the most
formidable difficulty in the way of the
All over the nation the populist
leaven is working, and the able and
aggressive fight made by the populist
press in advocacy of the "vagaries,"
the Watchman so much deprecates and
deplores, is bearing abundant fruit.
Let us march on to victory. .

Until the End of tha World There Will Be
Canning- Spiders and Foolish Files.
Since the Cleveland fiasco. Senator
Dubois is talking this kind of rot'
One point has been made evident bv
the recent conventions, and it will en
able the sliver men to plan their cam
paign with greater clearness. Thev
do not now believe that the democratic
party will declare for free coinage or
for any radical recognition of silver in
the next national convention. This
view is based upon the developments
of the silver convention in Memphis,
when it was made very plain that the
southern democrats were not willing
to leave their party, no matter how
obnoxious the financial plunk of the
platform might be. Consequently,
when the national convention meets
next year, and the northern and east
ern delegates demand a sond moncv.
ntl-silver plank, the chances are that
the southern delegates wilV acquiesce
rather than go into any new political
organization. Believing this, the re
publican silver men are not disposed
at this time to suggest the formation
of a new party upon strictly silver
lines, but will . endeavor to secure
within the republican party some
recognition for silver. This they be
lieve they will be able to da They say
that the next republican platform will
probably contain a demand for the
restoration of silver to the place held
by it in the national currency before
1873, and if they can secure this, they
will be satisfied. Anything less than
this, however, will make a republican
campaign in the western states worse
than useless, as any ticket nominated
npon a free coinage platform can sweep
the entire western country.
"With the belief that if anything is
to be gained leg silver, it must be
within the republican lines, the plan
of campaign will now be directed to
ward making more converts in that
party. It so happens that in the com
plexion of the next senate the silver
men will hold some advantage, be
cause without their votes the reDub-
licans will be unable to pass any legis
lation. Out of this situation may grow
some interesting compromises, the re
sult of which will be seen when the
republican national convention meets
next spring." .
Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds,
Liverpool, Glasgow and Bradford have
municipalized their water, gas, mar

mingham in seventeen years has made
714,000; the markets of Manchester
hand over annually 15,000 to the city
treasury; the surplus of nearly 7,000
on the trams of Liverpool goes toward
