THE WEALTH MAKERS.
BTAU AND KAN'S AN.
The man who is in debt i like the
hortte on the tread mill t hut uwil to be
rnn to furnish power for threshing when
I was a boy. He is forever climbing but
never pets np.
A million dollars is the amount Calvin
S. Brice of New York, is credited with be
ans: ready to spend to buy up another
Ohio legislature to return him to the
Senate. And we talk about "representa'
tive government" and the will of the
Senator Peffer has got on the right
track, He says interest and rent are the
great evils of the age. Back of these is
the fact that the idlers are robbing the
toilers; but as interest and rent are the
principal means by which the thieving is
done, the man who hits them is striking
pretty near borne.
A lumber trust is forming on the Pa
cific coast. Monopoly controls every
' thing there, by means of the railroads,
Competition is practically unknown ex-
' cept among fanners and those who have
labor to sell. They have to take what
they can get, while the prices of what
tbey must buy are all fixed by the com
bines. If that isn't slavery, it's a pretty
close approximation to it.
Five cents a week are the wages cliil-
dren get in the factories of India. Your
children will have to compete for work
with these coolies if our capitalistic ays
tem is kept up. Money is bound to buy
labor, like everything else, in the cheap
market; and if laborers dont want to be
crowded down to the Asiatic level, they
will have to get together and vote for
th co-operative commonwealth.
I cannot see that the destruction of
any amount of what is called wealth
would promote the progress of mankind
towards a higher civilization. If it
would I should think the advancecheaply
, purchased. But destruction does not
educate; nor does it develop a single
worthy or desirable trait of character
The mob never reasons; it is always
brutal and always promotes hate instead
of love, the animal in the place of the
spiritual, bo long as you tight the devil
of capitalism with the fires of anger and
revenge it is safe enough. Our triumph
can only come through the spread of bet
ter ideas. If theoverthrow of plutocracy
could be accomplished by a forcible rev.
olution, we could hope for nothing bet
ter than we have as the outcome. In the
education of the people to ideas of just
ice, brotherhood and unselfishness; and
not in any appeals to passion lies the
hope of the race. The advice to "buy a
gun" is the worst possible advice. Love
is more powerful than hate. The senti
ment of justice exists in every human
heart. Show how present conditions are
unjust; bring the truth home to every
upholder of the present system and your
cause will be won if it is possible to win
at all. - '
THE LOOM OF DEATH
Down In the depths of the factory's gloom
They gather at early dawn,
Where the ceaseless whirl of spindle and loom
Uoes on and on and on.
And the god of gold in the tainted air
An invisible Moloch standB,
And he watches the fabrics woven there
Br the toll of childish hands.
Backward and forward, over and np,
Steadily still they go,
Bat they hold to the lips a bitter cnp,
Whose dregs are the drejrs of woe,
For the hopes of yonth grow faint and die,
Held fast In these iron bands,
And the cold, hard world has never a sigh
For the patient, childish bands.
Ah, ye, whose darlings, in flowery ways,
Know naught of grim despair,
Think of the heated summer days
And yonr children working there,
Where never a cooling lephyr comes
Thro' the factory's stifling breath,
Where the looms weave and the spindle hams
In a treadmill 'round to death.
And onward, onward, upward and back
In the close and crowded rooms,
In a diizy race on an endless track
Go spindles and shafts and looms;
Til! the angel of death, with fatefal glass,
Shakes out the dusky sands.
As the merciful, iouged-for shadows pass
Over worn-out childish hands.

Gives Some Pointers for the Guidance of
Washington, Aug. 21. Ex-Senator
Butler, of South Carolina, called yes
terday on Senators Jones and Hams,
members of the executive committee
appointed by the recent Democratic
silver conference, and suggested the
following proposition to be advocated
by the silver Democrats:
First Repeal the tax on state bank
Second Admit silver to coinage at
an equality with gold at a ratio of 16
Third Retire all greenbacks and
Fourth Require national banks to
surrender their charters, and permit
them to take out state charters under
Fifth Take the government en
tirely out of the banking business.
Sixth Stop the issuance of long
time bonds by the government "The
revenues should be enough to support
the government. But if it is necessary
to issue bonds they should be of small
denomination, in order that our own
people can invest their savings in them.
COLD EXPORTS PROBABLE.
A New York Firm May Soon Send Oat
New York, Aug. 21. The question of
this week's gold shipments is being dis
cussed in the street. In view of the
fact that it is expected that a consid
erable amount of the yellow metal
will have to go forward in payment
for new government 4 per cents, re
turned from Europe, Hoskier, Woods &
Co. are, it is said, endeavoring to se
cure exchange to the amount of $3, OOO.
OOO to pay for bonds received by them
from London. If they cannot obtain
this amount, or any part of it, on terms
satisfactory to them, they will be
obliged to ship that amount of gold,
but as yet are unable to speak positive
ly on the subject.

Oar Ticket Gaining Strength
There are no new features in the county
campaign this week worth relating fur-
ther than that the machine workers of the
old party have been making prodigious
efforts towaril uniting the various ele
ments of the party without achieving
any great amount of success, while, on
the other hand, the People's Independent
ticket has gathered strength daily. John
Trompen, who has labored so haid for
years to secure the nomination for sheriff
begins to realize that all the votes he
boasts of controlling are not enough to
make him sheriff, while the trades inaae
or undertaken by Sam E. Low before his
nominatiou are bobbing up like lianquo i
chost. and will cause him no little em
harassment. Sam cannot turn all of his
votes over to John, nor can the latter
promise Sam more than tnat part ot his
constituency which always votes the Re
publican ticket. In the nieautime there
are hundreds of Republicans in the
countv who are disgusted with the
measures adopted by both who are com
ingto the supportof District Clerk Baker
and Sheriff Miller,
The tidal wave predicted by the pro
fessional Republican politicians seems to
have set in the opposite direction. As a
matter of fact there was no reason to
expect it. On the other hand there is
every reason to believe that the Fopulist
ticket will be elected from top to bottom
There is not the slightest indication of
disaffection on the part of those wno
voted for and elected Tibbetts, Raker,
and Miller, but, on the other hand, the
record of these omcers will serve 10
strengthen the entire ticket.
