rates as low as the lowest, seems to
meet the requirements of the traveling

Few of tlxo Xlemedie Advlsod..
ADVICE TO MOTHERS The book is worth many times the
price asked for it to mothers who have the care of small children. The
section devoted to children's diseases is the most modern of anything
yet published. It is brought up to date 1896.
NURSING Nothing is more conducive to the comfort of the sick
than to have an able nurse. By following the instructions and study
ing carefully the section devoted to this branch of the healing art, you
can become perfectly proficient in this science. Every woman should
know what to do and the best way of doing it in case they are sud
denly called upon to care for the sick.
INFANT FEEDING This section alone is worth many times
the price asked for the book. Here the mother, whether she be young
and inexperienced, or whether she may have had a world of experience,
will find words of wisdom. She will find what is the best food for the
baby, and the very latest and best way to prepare it.
DISEASES OF CHILDREN The treatment of children's dis
eases has been revolutionized during the past few years; all lhat is
new and by experience proven to be the best, has been incorporated in
this section. No book of recent date, not even for doctors, is as ad
vanced in its treatment of this important branch as this book. Ths
late treatment for that dreaded disease Diphtheria which has proven
so fatal to so many, is here fiiven.
DISEASES PECULIAR TO WOMEN In this section will be

is the latest and best. It is by a physician who has long been a spe
cialist in this class of diseases.

that a sound stomach is the prime requisite for a sound body.- The
diseases of this important organ have been dwelt upon at great length.
The very best means are minutely described for restoring this organ to
a healthful state after being once deranged.
THE LIVER Every individual knows the vast role this organ
plays in the human organism. If it be out of fix the whole family and
most of the neighbors know it, for he is a nuisance to himself and all
about him. This book gives a minute description of this all-important
organ, and a clear portrayal of its varied diseases. It then tells
how these may be corrected and the organ restored to its healthy con
dition. IIXT3NTIDrL33IDS MOHE.

Wasiu.ncton, June 12, 1896.
Special to the Independent: The first
session of the 54th congress closed yes
terday afternoon at 4 o'clock. The
record of this republican congress, like
its republican predecessors, as well aslike
the last democratic congress, has again
illustrated the difference between party
promises and party performance. Each
time the republican party comes in
power it does so by denouncing the sins
of omission and commission of the dem
ocratic party, promising to remedy the
evils that exist and to place remedial
legislation upon the statute books. The
democratic party gained control of the
last congress by denouncing the legisla
tion placed upon the statute book by
the republican party, and by showing
that the hard times and the stagnation
of business was brought about, chiefly
by such legislation. They promised not
only to wipe out this evil legislation, but
to enact laws that would give the people
more money and restore prosperity.
They not only failed to do this when they
had full power, but they fully endorsed
;rmrna rannhlioiii fi nnncial legisla
tion and made it worse by repealing the
1 1 . t r
last law on the Btatuie dooks iu mvur 01
silver or that provided for an increase of
the currency of the country. In short,
the party did not keep a single promise
that it made to the people. After de
unconstitutional and as a robbery, it placed upon the
statute books a nign proiecuve wnu
law which is today sun in lorce, anu
which is higher than any republican tar
iff ever enacted save and except the Mo
T.r I r 1 1 fUT Inn.
The republicans gained control of this
congress by denouncing iue ueacueiy
and incompetency of the democratic
party, and by promising to take bold
and vigorous steps to revive business
and to stop falling prices. The first ses
sion of this congress is closed, and what
has been done? Absolutely nothing.
Not a single law has been passed that
will remove a single evil that has been
preying upon the body politic; not a
wingfe law that will raise prices, make
debts easier to pay, give employment to
hard times and stagna
tion which today hangs as a threatening
pall over the nation, from ocean to ocean.
In short, it has been a "do nothing con
gress." The record is almost DiauK, ana
under circumstances ime tne present no
record, is themostdamagiug record that
a party can have. That is, thegold com
hin nnrt mnnonolists have succeeded in
getting- conditions almost exactly aa
they desire them. It is true if the gold
ring could satisfy its every wish, the
greenbacks would be burned up and the
whole power of issuing paper money
would be given to the national banks.
But they are reasonably well satisfied
with the present condition of things.
Thurofnro t.hn riArt.v that will serve them
best is the party that will do nothing,
thereby preserving conditions as iney
are; and, by the same reasoning, the
party that betrays the people most is
the party that 'does nothing and leaves
the people to suffer the poverty and dis
tress which now exists and must con
tinno imi.il there in a chance in the finan
cial system and in the administration of
of our governmental anairs.

Mo It Inatunter,
The independent party should take
into consideration the fact that the
hardest fight they now have to contend
with by all odds and opposition is to
to preserve unity and harmony. If we
permit republican and democratic canis
ter to disrupt our forces, then we are
weak where we should be strongest. Let
us have peac, unity and oneness of pur
pose, and as fast as a spy takes refuge
under our cover kick him overboard.

There was no meeting of the national

THE POPULIST RECORD.
The.r Reprcscn'atives In Congress are
Mtn to be Proud of.
While this has been essentially a do
nothing congress, yet it is entirely safe
and proper to say that no party has ever
yet made a finer record in any legmla
tive assembly than the people's party
senators and congressmen have made
since last December. To begin with, the
people's party senators invoked every
silver man in both of the old parties to
join with them last December in organ
izing the senate against the gold men
and for financial reform. This was emi
nently proper as no party controlled the
senate. The silver men in both parties
were put to the test, but nearly all of
them proved to be party bugs first and
patriots second, if patriot at all. The
six people's party senators have almost
every day informed both of the old
parties that they were ready to give six
votes to eithe. side, which would be to
give a majdrity to either party, that
would offer and support any measure in
the interest of the American people. The
people's party senators even agreed to
accept the McKinley tariff bill as an
amendment on the true coinage bill if the
republicans would agree to support a
free coinage bill with such an amend
ment. This the republicans declined to
do, thereby admittingthat they not only
considered the gold standard of greater
importance than the McKinley tariff, but
at the same time showing conclusively
that they were opposed to increasing the
money of the couutry and to doing any
thing that would be of relief and ma
terial benefit to the laboring classes. In
short, the people's party has been ready
to support any measure that either side
would offer that was honest and meri
torious; but no such measures have been
offered. On the other hand, the meas
ures which have been introduced by the
people's party senators and congress
men would do credit to any set of legis
lators who have ever been honored with
seats in the American congress meas
ures that would have relieved the pres
ent distress of the people and made this
once more a prosperous and happy coun
try. But these measures today lie dead
upon the calendar of an adjourned con
gress simply because the representatives
of neither one of the old parties would
help the people's party representatives
to enact them into law.
Forty-oners va. Forty-seveners.
"The money question," the McKinley
men keep on sayiug, "is a secondary is
sue, although important. The main is
sue is the tariff, and the republican party
will make its fight on that."
This sentiment finds repeated expres
sion from McKinley managers and Mc
Kinley organs in various parts of the
country. It is pronounced so persistent-
ently and emphatically that it must
What does it mean? What is the tariff
issue which is to be the principal issue of
the coming campaign? On that issue
who is it, or what is it that the McKin
ley republicans expect to fight?
Certainly not the present high protect
ive tariff, enacted by a congress demo
cratic in both branches, and allowed to
become a law by a democratic president,
who, nevertheless, denounced it as too
atrociously protective to receive his sig
nature. The present tariff is one of the
highest protective tariffs ever in force m
the United States. Its average rate
falls short of the average rate of the pre
ceding tariff, distinguished as the Mc
Kinley tariff, by very little. A presiden
tial campaign waged in support of the
general theory of protection as against
the general theory of tariff taxation for
revenue only, is a conceivable thing.
Such a campaign occurred four years
ago. But a presidential campaign turn
ing on the question whether 41 per cent,
let us say, or 47 per cent shall be the av
erage rate of protection, is utterly incon
ceivable to the ordinary mind. You are
not going to fire up much enthusiasm in
the hearts of either the forty-oners or
the forty-seveners. New York Sun.

producers of this country. It means to
make the products of the unprotected
labor of this country cheaper and cheap

petition with 800,000,000 coolies,
who are competeiug with him in the Eu

I have been a protectionist and I have
advocatod protection; but I never
dreamed that the party to which I be
longed would abandon the producers of
the country and build up a protection
entirely in favor of the millions of coolies
and see the struggling masses of this
country reduced to powder. I never be
lieved that. Why, the first move in pro
tection is to equalize exchange, to give
our people money, to make it possible to
manufacture in different parts of the
country. Protection withjtbe gold stand
