What we say is reliable. We cannot forget the ad
vantages that come to a store through the channels of
confidence. We steer widely from catch-penny non
sense that you find in so many offers you find in your
daily reading of ads. , , , ,
When you place your money in a bank you do so be
cause you have faith in its stock-holders and their man
agement. You expect your investment to pay a certain
per cent and you expect that pef cent when tis due.
You expect it because you have faith in their banking
knowledge. Did you ever think . how much better we
do by you than the banks? .
When you invest your money in this store you have faith
in its business methods. When you invest your money
here you expect to get your moneys worth, or your
money back. You expect a certain per cent from your
investment and you never fail to get it in this house.
We pay interest by saving you from $2.00 to $5.00 on
every suit of clothes you buy of us and in that way you
get your principle and interest both back the same day
you make your deposit. That's better than most stores
do isn't it? One cent will bring you our catalogue with

The following ia a part of a very pow
rful article (bat appeared ia the July
Arena. Tbe necessity ot an united oppo
aitfoa to tbe money power in tbe next
Drealduntial election was nevor more
forcibly expressed.
There will be, on tbe republican side, in
tbe campaign of 1000, tbe organizers of
very trust, tbe president and directors
of every bank, tbe officers and larger
atockbolder of every railroad, the em
ployers in every protected industry, tbe
managers and beneficiaries of every cor
ii poration operated under, or in bopes of
I apecial privilege; aud above all these, tbe
J creators of and gainers by tbe great
r monopoly of money. There will be ex
' eptions, but so few as only to illuminate
tbe fact, and this will occur no matter
what the platform, or who the nominees
of the party. The platform will be
framed to deceive, tbe nominees will be
; chosen to mislead. Tbe controllers of
, tbe trusts can be counted on to control
republican legislation, no matter what
tbe platform, or who the cboson tools.
Principles count for little in a party that
that represents 85 per cent of tbe wealth
. of tbe land, owned by 12 per cent of the
l people. uuctDiSMDy no means an.
Upon tbe republican side will be not only
those of great wealth, but those wborn
they directly or indirectly control, who
are many. This will include, for exam
ple nine-tenths of the wealthier clergy,
who preach to rich men's wives and
receive rich mon's checks. It will include
moat ot tbe poorer clergy and religious
workers among tbe poor, who, as a rule,
are more dependent upon wealth even
than thoee with larger salaries. It will
include tbe lawyer who expects large
tees, or who seeks a bank, railroad or
corporation practice. Standing for
silver In 1800 coet many a lawyer a
remunerative practice. It will include
most editors; at least most editorials
will favor tbe republican party, though
not a few journalists will write one way
and vote tbe other. The exception to
the republican attitude of the press will
be a fw brilliant and well-known papers
and tbe noble army of martyrs of the
unestablishud reform press. Among
those directly or Indirectly influenced by
wealth will be most college presidents
and professors, those who desire to be
come such and teachers very generally,
In schools both public and private.
Few are so dependent today as teachers;
those in public schools upon machine
policies, those in private schools directly
upon wealth. The only professional
men, who, as a class, are largely inde
pendent, are physicians. The present
system so wears on the nerves of the
wealthy, of the poor, aud particularly
of thcMMt who are neither, that a physi
cian with a practice can be reasonably
tmieiienuent. ibMities l tis prolsssious.
there will be at the command ol the
ijoneyed a large number of the unmou-
yed lu iwed ol money. This includes
the multitudinous small merchant who
may need loans from banks. It Includes
many who have mortgaged property,
and, areording to the last census, only
thirty-live per cent ol our own mh,iI
owa unmortgaged homo. It iiicluds
vast numbers ot the snleanmt and clerks
tn stores and offices. Indeed, the whole
comiiwirlal class, as a whole, eaa b
counted upon faithfully to kamt Ufor
Its feudal lords.

average nearly two trusts were formed
a week, This year business is better,
and now a new trust appears , almost
very morning. II the trusts could only
perform a new robbery every hour still
more money would be transferred and
go through the clearing bouses. The let
ters too report in glowing terms what
cases there are of wages being raised
five or ten per cent, but forget to ex
plain bow, in tbe previous two years,
wagos have been cut again and again
5 or 10 per cent, 20 or 80 per cent In all.
They also forget to state bow the pro
duct is increasing and what is due to a
beavy export trade. This will probably
Increase still more. When our people
are completely robbed so that they can
buy nothing, and work for nearly noth
ing, our mapufacturers will be both able
and compelled to export still more.
These letters also usually contain ttm
statement that silver is dead. Borne of
them also quote certain professors in
certain colleges. Later, after correspon
dence with Washington, these professors
are appointed "experts on statistics" to
certain United Rtute bureaus and com
missions. Still later, workingmen are
surprised to bear that "expert statis
tics" show that wages in the United
States "have increased 80 per cent fa
tbe lust CO years." Others of these In
teresting letters are sent to the religious
press, and argue that silver means finan
cial dishonor and national disgrace.
Moreover, silver is dead! Obituary edi
torials are requested and papers are
requested to "please copy." These let
ters contain no checks. Religious peo
pie cannot be bought in that way. The
letters to tbe regular press only occa
sionally contain checks. Most editors
can be trusted of themselves to be on the
side of moay. 8tlll other letters go to
the papers of the United States 'pub
lished in foreign languages. These con
tain editorials prepared in tbe various
languages, with a not to tbe editor
promising payment on receipt of a copy
of the paper containing the editorial.
These letters are also sent ia mourning
over silver. Other letters go to certain
great republican organs, with directions
to send their weekly editions for six
months to such and such doubt ful voters
with notes that tbe paper Is paid for by
"a friend" and that they need not be
afraid to take them from the office. Tbe
paper is told to send the bill to the bu
reau. Other letters do not go to the press,
but are sent to the banks, railroad cor
porations, etc., aud contain suggestions
lor me treatment oi employes, financial
dependents, etc One suggestion is that
banks make no loans to parties adver
tisiug in reiorm journals, mis sugges
tion is now being acted on In the united
States. Is not this a free country? Can
not the banks do as they please? All
such Arms are also reminded that silver
is dead, and to spread the news. Per
baps tbe most important letters, bow
ever, go to republican organizers through
out tue lend, aud Usuulty contain lanro
checks. This money iroes ultimately to
representatives more or less under pay,
In every contested district, in everv
doubtful ward, In every close precinct lu
the United States, especially In the for
eign precincts. In many doubtful oities
uia party nas, in ma close wards; reprw
ppuutiiTm, nHirs or less under pay, in

contain no the Its, but receipt. Then

that. Second, they must be adequate
to the situation. No bauble or string
of baubles will answer. Division is bet
ter than useless union. Third, the
measures adopted must be within th
range of political possibility, which in
eludes tbe foot that they must be accept
able to millions of voters. Dreamers
may unite for the Impossible, Practical
men cannot. .
What measures! then, fulfil thei4e three
Direct legislation Is one of them. This
will not accomplish everything, but It Is
today a sine qua non. Without it we
cau get nothing. It only can give us
control over our legislators. legisla
tors have sold us out before. Without
direct legislation, they can do so again.
Hut with direct legislation they cannot,
at least not to any Importunt extent.
Direct legislation is ths way today to
spell democracy, the people's rule.
Moreover, direct legislation leads to and
includes all otbor reforms. It is almost
the one measure upon which all tbe
schools of reform agree. Its growth
Into favor has been uneqnaled In rapid
Ity. It occupies the bead of tbe march
lug columns of reform. Hut alon it is
not enough. Horn think it is, Tb
union reform party of Ohio thinks It Is.
It says that any party unwilling to leave
all else to the people shows thereby that
It doesnot bollove indirect legislation,
This is specious reasoning. Certlanly any
party that believes In direct legislation
should refer all legislation to the people;
but this should not sxoept direct legisla
tion Itself, Dut a party does not legis
late, it only proposes legislation: and
any reform party that would win today
must propose much morn than direct
legislation, but why? Because they
think It the means to something else,
principally public ownership.
This is another moosuro which fulfills
ths conditions Indicated. It Is only be'
cause of tb end that most of them car
for th means. It Is the end which wll
create enthusiasm, call out votes, carry
the platform to success. Reformers may
realize ths necessity aud all sufficiency
of direct legislation, but th people can
not be roused over any mere machinery
of legislation. Public ownership will
carry direct legislation to success at th
polls, and then direct legislation will
make public ownership possible. Do we
realise bow popular public ownership is?
Th most popular, paper of New York,
Chicago, and San Francisco have come
out avowedly for it. It was to some ex
tent in the platform of every municipal
party in Greater Now York, two years
ago. It was favored by every party, in
one way or another, In Cblongo's reoent
election. Iiecuuseof bis active hostility
to private franchises. Carter Harrison
was elected. It Is embodied In the new
charter of San Francisco. In, Toledo,
Mayor Jones mads it bis main plank,
and received twice as many votes as
both bis opponents combined. It is
favored by the gold democrats of tb
east, and by IlenJy Watterson in th
heart of Bourbon, Kentucky. And these
Instances show not only what editors
and politicians think, but their judgment
of whdt is popular with tbe people. If
direct legislation has grown rapidly,
public ownership has , grown widely in
favor. If direct legislation Is ths bead,
oubllo ownership is the Heart ol reform
and a reform platform today without
public ownership would mean a cam
paign that bad lost heart in ths begin
nlng. Hence tb folly of declaring for
direct legislation alone. We cannot get
everything at once; It Is well to be deli
nils and concrete; ws must use language
that the dullest can comprehend, and
the acutest cannot twist Into ths decla
ration that we want to sooiuilxe every
thing at onoe; bene ws favor language
neither too vulgar nor too Inclusive, but
a definite declaration for "the national
ownership of railroads, telegraphs and
telephones, and the municipal ownership
or water, lignt, and local transit,"
Two other plauks must be added.
The first of these is an untl-lmpcriallst
plank. This Is necessary because the
conscience of . the land lsaroued upon
this point, and reform cannot neglect
conscience. The attitude of ths admin
istratlon is a direct violation of the fun
damental principles of all popular gov
eminent, as deriving Its Just powers
from tbe oonsent of the governed. Tbe
additional facts that it has broken the
nation's solemn pledge, given before the
war, Is holding cheap our soldier s lives,
and taking tbe lives of thousands of
half-tutored islanders, while at the can
non's mouth It talks of spreading the
principles of Christianity and of enlight
ened government, has called down a
tempest on it bead, even from Its own
party. Unless such a policy he Imme
diately changed, It will be ueefmsary to
oondemu it In any reform platform, and
to do so loudly that all tbe world may
hear. It Is not a question of the l'hillp
pine islands, but of tbe United States.
It Is not a question of policy, but of
uouesty and moral rignt. i pn such a
question, reform can neither bs silent,
nor utter uncertain sound. There will,
too, as always In standing for ths rurht,
bs political gain In such a plunk. Few
planks will rally mora to our causa the
best coiiselencn of lbs nation, and fw
plauks will better serve to divide ths
sueuty. If w make th plank an isnue,
ths republican party will ba cotupsIM
elibff to support or condemn ths ad
ministration, yet either vourse will not
ths party hundreds of thousands of
vntea, for it is strong proof of ths is
ntelousniNMof Its policy, that thousands,
and, porhape millions, ol republicans
blush at their rhampioa's eora.
Ths lourth plank that we must adopt
is tssadorHMnt of ths luudauMwtai

tiie national platform, lu 1900 It can
not be defeated. The utterances of all
tne great popular democratia papers
ana oi aimost an tne leaders snow that
the party Is equally ready for public
ownership, u one doubts this, let blra
read again the details we give above.
rublto ownership cannot be defeated in
tbe next democratic convention. The
east will work for It with the west. Ths
democratic leaders, too, are with us on
the anti-Imperialist plank. It will thus
declare for all other planks In our plat
form, and If it does not, we do not favor
union who it. van we not then, to get
that union, declare for free silver, which
the democrats and most populists want?
Why should we not? Same say that
other Issues ar mora Important Per
haps, but this Is argument, not for leav
ing silver out, but for adding other
propositions to it, which Is exactly what
ws propose.
Some say they want, not silver, but
"scientific money," Perhaps they do:
we do ourselves; but can w get it?
Others sny that the whole question is
unimportant and befogs the issue. If it
bs unimportant, can they not accept
that little thing to win th great demo
oratia party? A few, very few, reformers
bnve conscientious scruples against ths
sliver dollar. They really believe ft
would be a dishonest or fifty cent dollar.
Ws ask no men to compromise honest
belief. Hut reformers who so think are
few. Of the fl.4 54,000 votes counted for
sliver In 181)0, to nay nothing of the
votes cast, probably loss than 1,000
now think silver wrong. Tbeoomlng up
of new Issues, tb fresh crimes committed
by the republican party bare, porhais
temporarily, In piirt obscured the silver
question; but, for every silver man who
has come to think silver wrong, and
whose vote we may therefore lose, ws
shall win hundreds of votes of those
weary and sick of gold and ths rule of
gold. It must be remembered, too, that
at any moment ths money question may
blase no into a conflagration. Tb long
time debts of the nation are estimated
by some at "0,000,000,00 of dollnrs,
ths short-tinis dobta at perhaps as much
more. There is In th whole land, no
cording to public authority, consider
ably less than 12,000,000,000 of legal
money. Iet there be a financial or an
iddustrlul punlo, (and with trusts, cap
italised at $7,000,000,000, largely
water, a crash seems only a question of
time), let confidence once go, and the
tumult rnnv bars tn nav 140.000.(100..
000 of debt with 12,000,000,000 of
money what tbat will mean, no one
can even faintly guess.
W gran t th an large numbers of pop
ulists, and others outside of ths demo
cratic party, would prefer something
better than silver; but that Is not tbe
oueetlon. The Question is, eaa ws get
anything better? If not, our silence
would mean gold, Togo over to ths
gold standard Is an impossibility for
most democrat and populists: yet this
Is what silence would mean, Hence tbe
insertion of a silver plank is necessary,
if ws are to bays the democrat and
most populists with us. Ws ask no re
formers to vote for It wbo have con
scientious scruple against sliver; but
every bodyels should vote for It, whether
be personally desires it or not. t ne suc
cess ot union may depend on this point.
Direct legislation Is ths head, public
ownership ths heart, antl-lmperlallsin
the conscience; but free silver furnishes
tbe feet of reform, and It alone can give
us a standing that can unit with ns the
largest party opposed to republican
domination. Without the democratic
party we cannot win.
If the democratic- party will accept all
four propositions, as we believe it wilt,
undoubtedly the best chanoe for success
will be through tbat party, but, if tb
democratic party should fail to do so,
we do not recommeud anion with it.
Some dislike, and more fear, tbe demo
cratic party. We remind such tbat the
present democratic party Is practically
a new. party, undr a new, honest and
fearless leader, a leader committed to
tbe people' cause and whom the people
trust. There are, of course, bad jmople
in the democratic party, us in every
pBrt.v. and there are good people in the
republican party, but this Is of small po
litical moment, because the bad do not
control the democeatio party and tbe
good do not control the republican
party. If we doubt that, look at their
doings. A new Jmrty is not built up In
a day. It would in all probability mean
but one mors division aud one more de
feat. The democratic Is ths only party
that can carry the one hundred and
thirty-three electoral vote of the south
and ngainst that solid argument, all ar
guments for a new party fade away.
Ths only other present reform party
that cau at all compare with ths demo
cratic party In strength Is the people's
party: but that party cannot aive us the
south, and without that w ranoat win.

to ths Committee for purposes intended.
Where it Is convenient to do so, clubs can bs formed and ths remittance
