A Strange Proceeding-.
Nearly twenty years ago this country
decided to resume specie payment. From
that date machinery was set at work to
knock out one-half or more of the specie
to pay with. That is very strange. In
business matters a man that would do
that would be called a lunatic and the
court would appoint a guardian for him.
That it should take the people twenty
years to seewhatistbematter is stranger
But to talk about redeeming the dol
lar of the constitution the silver dollar
in gold, strpasses lunacy. Our lan
guage fails, and here we pause.

We free silver follows are doing pretty
well, I thank you. We have one candi

vice-president. Charley Lemasters says
we have votes enough to elect
the whole blessed outfit. The boys were

that Watson was selected for vice presi

The new national committee is an ex
ceptionally strong one. Senator Marion
Butler, the new chairman, is young, vig
orous, energetic and intensely in earnest,
and we have every confidence that be
will make a most efficient chairman.
The old committee, though the recip
ient of many cruel stabs in the house of
its friends, retires crowned with honor
honor richly won by the success and
growth of the peoples party during its
administration. Chairman Taubeneck's
work will shine brighter and be more
and better appreciated as the years go
by. Progressive Farmer.

Lenox, Iowa, July 25, 1896.
Editor Independent: Mr. McLaugh
lin of Lincoln, Nebraska is now traveling
through southwestern Iowa pleading the
cause of W. J. Bryan and free silver.
Mr. McLaughlin said in conversation to
day "the common people are thinking as
they never thought before" and urges
that good speakers be sent out at once
as the people are ready and willing to be
taught. Mr. McLaughlin said, "In my
opinion W. J. Bryan will carry this state
without a doubt."
Lenox Silver Club,
A New York Prediction.
The nomination by the free silver re
publican convention and the populist
convention this week places Bryan of
Nebraska at the head of the greatest
popular movement of this century. It
makes him, more than was lamented
Lincoln, in his day, the popular leader
and represenative of the great American
Despite his chivalrous desire to link his
own success with that of Arthur Sewall,
we feel confident that Mr. Bryan will ac
cept promptly the populist nomination.

Party and Patriotism.
The St Louis convention tried the
principles of the populist party as no
other party was ever tried, and it proved
to the world that as a political party,
it placed principle far beyond mere par
ty fealty. True patriotism forgets party,
when the good of humanity is the issue.

The People's party has a platform

- Alabama Election.
BnunBGKAJf, Ala., Aug. 6. Further
election returns confirm the first re
ports of a eomplete Democratic vic
tory with surprisingly large gains.
The count in the large counties has
been slow, especially in the big cities,
but official and estimated returns,
the latter based on reports received
from a majority of the boxes in the
counties reporting, show that Johnson
and the Democrats have certainly car
ried forty-five out of fifty-six counties
Ooodwyn, Populist, has fifteen coun
ties. Six counties have not been
heard from or are too close to figure
upon. Of the last named Johnson
probably has four and Goodwyn two.
It is believed that the f nil returns will
show a majority of not less than 45.
000 for Johnson, and possibly 60,000.
As oompared to the election in 1894
the Democrats have carried certainly
fifteen counties that gave Populist
majorities two years asro.
