ANOTHER LETTER TO JOHNSON.
uicgests a ltvmedr for the Coal llaron of
Washington, I). C, August 0, 1807.
Mr. J. V Johnson, Lincoln, Neb,
After hearing the Ohio republican, tell
bow easy he made thirty-live thoumuid
dollar, and hearing mo much other tulk
of pruH rity, I became" enttiuMl uuiJ
hungry, that I conclude! to ko into thu
dining car and get a good ""ul, ul"'
did get a good too tu" c"l)r,,l
man brdught me a plat with two largo
ellce of melon on it, anil poureu
ilus of water, and I concluded
wax going to puy
ent llir IL Mil till
Uicul. 1 told him I
didn't come in there to make a mini on
melon and water, I had all of t hem 1
wanted back to Harpy Outer, I nld I
wan hungry and wanted some coffee and
Nome kind of meet, what 1 wauled wan
just such a meal 11 they wi t out for a
quarter, at the hotel, at 'ho countysent
Where I liad once Mopped for a week,
when I wan on the Jury. Tho blaek feller
looked at mo Mort of fiirioiiH, mid bund
d inc a lurge pu ce of pasteboard with
all sort of iiiiineM of thing printed 011
It, but I told him 1 didn't cere to read
ttiiythinit. whil 1 wu waiting, to hurry
Dp whatever he had to net, out I could
not tuako out what all w'n printed on
he big card he give mc, there win t Jim
iiuiiicm of different kind of flh, Vege
tabli'M and meatN but no liiueli of It wan
income 01 her kind of language than
Fnglisb, nnd the cur jerked around mi
ininh that I could not make out head or
tad to It. Hut tho waiter dually e.iiuu
back with a great load of stuff, two or
three kindM ol meat and about thirty
dishes tilled with all kind ol ruling. 1
looked it over in Murprisc. Jt wan thy
biggest spread I ever saw for a ipjurlcr.
F.verylloiig wn cooked grand too but
I had not taken three mouthful before I
Kot to thinking how plainly Mary and 1
had lived lor ovr thirty year, and
in ver 111 that tune liud had Much a meal
UN wan now before me, and 1 could not
swallow another mouthful. I tried hard
to cat, but It would xtlck In my throat
and I thoUKht I Mhould choke, I would
inv choked, but 1 kept washing Itdowu
, with coffo, (they had brought me a full
pot of that) and It win the bout coffee 1
ever drunk. When I could cut 110 more,
of course I Mtopped, und thu colored
feller ankcd mo what I would have for
desert. That Mtumpcd me, I wn au old
soldier, but I bad never decried, and
didn't Intend to now, but, a 1 couldn t
ouitocatch-on to hlH nieaniu, I replied 1
don't want anything of yau now, except
my change and 1 handed him a dollar,
lie looked at me with a surprised Mort
ol look and Hiild "there I no change
coinui to you Mar" thin In the exact
amount. "My Lord, nay I, ha our
iMkv nil ver money come to thls.'only
worth a milliter." YoU W I tliOUKUt of
1.01110 of your argument hint fall, when 1
you Maid the Milvef Hollar wanoniy worm
fllty-threoeeiilM, and I thought It had
tell twenty-eight cent more, but the
colored man xaid, "Oh thi dollah I m
good a it ever wiim, meal In thi car,
urn worth a dollah wheiher you pay in
papah, dver or gold," Jut think of
if, 1 had eaten u inenl that cot one
dollar, and my money mo near none, but
I consoled myell with tho thought that
Dave Mercer would surely get iiat a
government position, and get my pen
Mion increased, and Uuii 1 thought pro
petity wo surely coming. While 1 wa

camo in and eat their dinner near 1110 and
they talked of nothing but pro'rity

0110 woman, iu thi niauuer, and it
work all riht, and thu women eoeia
to like it jiiHt an well a il they had only
0110 husband to look after." Well John
Mon, don't you kuow that all tho other
threo UKiced tliat.Hii would be a grand
Mcheuio, and thu tirat 0110 continued, "I
have talked thi over with Mark Jlnniia
and ho ay it i jut the chocHc, Now
what we want to do I to crowd out the
married men, who are not willing to
Himd awuy their fumilie and livo in
sipiade, and fill their place by men who
will, then you en we need not have
i:hool to support, in our in 111 1 town,
and our pauper tax will bo lee, we will
also net rid id the church and Hundiiy
school nuisance, ami smipiiiK preacherM
and worker will (put tronbiimr 11."
My (tod Johnson just, think of this,
t'au thi be our Murk llninia, our party
sa vior of hist full? Want labor ho cheap
that a man with wife and babes, can not
work, and live, just think ol it und thi
proposition wn made by a man who
had just paid fifteen dollar for four
dinner and the wine, Filirwi dollar,
jut the amount, t hat i got lor my best
linrse, und he wa a KO"d one too, that
I sold with the rest a low day before at
my sale at Harpy Outer, One K'od
horse to brinif what the wealthy pay for
a dinner. Think of it Johnson, One of
the oilier-spoke up und said, "l',v
Kcol'KO I hat I just the scheme, I put
twenty-live ihniisiiinl dollar into Mark
lliinna' cainpai(u fund lust year, and
i cu 11 get, ten I iiiirs 1 hat amount buck by
thi system, but can we yet tho women,''
"Why ol course," said another, "most
all of them would be uluil ol the chalice,
What does one ol these wive et now
hut her food and cloihe and mighty
little of cither, Hhe ha to cook and
wash lor husband and children, and
they would rather cook und wash for
eiKht men, then under thin system these
women would have no children and that
I what break them down now, It I
breeding and nursing younu one,"
Well Johnson I must: close a 1 havejust.
Kot a letter from I hive Mercer and must
read it, 1 suppose II, I either about my
pension or position or both, Moon alter
I had hen id the conversation that I
have written you about our tiaiu came
to a iiilniiiK town. Wm had to wait
there lor neveral hour, because of a
wreck up the road, and there I w here
I saw the pinched and hungry look of
women and children, that 1 mentioned
to you in my lust letter, and 1 never
can forget the Horrowful woe begone
look of the men, llrewd lu rag.
Their eye had the haunted pleudiug
look ol animal. Yet they were men.
and every one of I hem wa ready and
willing to work, bu t there wa nothing
lor them to do. I will tell you iu my
next of u!l these Nad scene. I am
anxious to hear from you. I read my
