This is "Passion Week" and the oc
curences of this week 1869 years ago
have had a greater influence upon the
world and upon mankind than any
other seven days in all history. Every
man will agree to that whether agnos
tic or believer. The Independent goes
into thousands of families, some are
Catholics, some protestants, some Jews
and some are liberal or agnostics. They
subscribe for and read the paper for
its summary of news and because of
the political principles it advocates.
The only discussion of that week that
The Independent -: could indulge' in
would be; from the economic and po
litical standpoint. A viewj of the his
tory that has come down to us of the
transactions of those momentous days
shows that the same struggle was in
progress then,a& now. Economic, and
political terms have changed, but the
things designated are the same. There
was imperialism, trusts, bank sharp3
and a reformer then the same as now.
Palistine was a conquered province
and governed from Rome according to
the same " theories that the republican
party hasr adopted and put. in practice
in the Philippines and in Porto Rico.
Rome haduacquired the land just as
we have acquired the Philippines, by
a war of conquest, and governed it just
as the republican party governs mod
ern provinces, by appointees from the
central government, without the con
sent of the governed. ,
There was aa ' privileged class then
just as now. They were not produc
ers, but lived upon the products of
the labor of other men. Josephus says
that there were 20,000 priests in Je
rusalem who lived upon the revenues
of the temple. To increase these rev
enues a trust had'been formed to con
trol the price of the articles used in
the temple worship. These articles
certain animals, birds, incense, etc.
were a monopoly and controlled by a
trust. The bankers, who were then
called money-changers, had their
"graft" the same as now. The Roman
money was as good as the Jewish
coin, but the bankers in collusion with
the temple trust had made an ar
rangement not to accept in payment
for temple dues any kind of money
but the Jewish coins, and these bank
ers who had located themselves with
in the temple skinned the people when
they came to , get the only kind of
money tha was. legal tender there.
The bankers wanted the Roman coins
"redeemed" In the Jewish coins. They
aret . putting up. the same kind of a
game today and 'want silver coins
"redeemed" in gold coins. So they
had the banks' the, trusts and imper
ialism Jtjieiv ih& .same., as now. ?
HOw about the reformer. ; of those
times. : He - seems to have been ; very
popular 'with the common people,, for
it is . said ."'the; cpmmofl' people . heard
him gladly." . He, was a very, radical
sort of a reformer. When, he saw how
the trust and the bankers were swind
ling-the. people he was so indignant
that he seized a whip and drove the
whole crowd v of them out into the
street and told them that they were j
making the place a den for thieves and j
robbers. The Independent has talked
that way about the modern kind and
some very ; good people have been
shocked. No doubt the same class
were just as badly shocked 1869 years
ago when that reformer used those
awful words.
The reformer at Jerusalem met with
very much the same kind of treatment
that the reformers of these times are
subjected to, only they are not now
crucified. At first the people flocked
to him, but when the days of persecu
tion came they deserted. He was called
a "traitor" just as the men of the
present time who oppose imperialism,
trusts and banks are. They said that
he wanted to destroy ; the "govern
ment," but his opponents were "for
the government, right or wrong." They
did not meet his reasoning with coun
ter arguments, or try to, for a Pharisee
stood no better chance with him in an
argument than.,a- modern monopolist
or gold standard man would in a joint
debate with Bryan or Towne. But as
Jerusalem was a colony just like the
Philippines, and was ruled by . imper
ialists, V they ? executed . this V reformer
with as little ceremony as, Major Wal
ler did the eleven -Filipino prisoners
whom he ordered shot without'the for
mality of ;a trial. For the moment the
imperialists,, trusts and banks were
triumphant. But ,s
"Yea, though thou lie upon the dust.
When they who helped thee flee in
' fear; ;
Die full of hope and manly trust,
Like those who fall in battle here.
Another hand thy sword shall wield,
Another hand thy standard wave,
Till from the trumpet's mouth Is
The flash of triumph o'er the grave."
A long sermon might be preached
from the text that populists and demo
crats generally do not give their own
party papers the hearty support nec
essary : to Insure success. Your av
erage republican takes but one paper
generally take two or more papers-
and one of these is very-likely to be
a republican paper. Hence, the re
publican papers, get more than their
share of the support. Frank S. Reed,
editor of the Lisbon (N. D.) Search
light, after trying nearly three years
to disprove it, finally was compelled
to acknowledge the truth of the state
ments above, and has decided to seek
another field;
The Filipino junta at-Hong Kong
has written a letter to President
Roosevelt that if it had been written
at another time to another govern
ment, it would have set this country
on fire from end to end, it Is so pa
triotic and so pathetic. In the begin-J
ning they say: :
We do no require any further
lesson to teaeh us the immeasur
able superiority in power of a na
tion which has enjoyed all the
blessings of liberty for more than
a hundred years, and which is ten
times as great in population, and
incalculably greater in wealth.
. It concludes with this statement:
Finally the hope, and with the
earnest prayer that this apeal
may meet with a favorable re
sponse, we respectfully represent
that no way can be found of put
ting an end to this unhappy con
flict, which does not include an
adequate assurance to our people
of some form of ultimate national
life. We ask in all sincerity, is
not this aspiration both legit
imate and laudable, and if so,
: what other course would you have
a self-respecting people adopt?
What greater proof of our sincer
ity and devotion could there be
than the prolongation of resist
ance even after the complete su
premacy of American arms has
been established? The arms of
America can march unresisted
from end to end of our country,
but wherever they are not pres
ent our people unite, drawn to
gether by a common desire. The
American armies can defeat our
troops, but they cannot defeat or
destroy this desire, unless by the
destruction of those who hold it,
c and such an act as this we can
never believe the American people
would knowingly authorize.
Could any one of us have imagined
when we were boys and recited on
Friday afternoons Patrick Henry's im
passioned appeal, "Give me liberty or
give me death," that we would live to
see the clay that the government we
worshiped would ever turn a deaf ear
to an appeal like that? Did we ever
dream that the. time would come when
armies of . conquest would be sent out
by this republic and ruthlessly slay
the men who like Patrick Henry con
tinued to say: "Give me liberty or
give., me death?" VfOb, the i shame, the
indescribable shame of it! Is the love
of liberty dead? Are all the ideas of
our boyhood days blotted out forever?
The Independent does not believe it.
It says to the Filipinos: "The Amer
ican people will never authorize it."
We are now under the heavy hand of
the imperialists. We suffer our gen
erals to call us traitors because we
still love, liberty. But this nightmare
of imperialism will pass and we will
arise from our degradation, light anew
the torch of liberty and lead the na
tions on to complete freedom. In
that day you, too, shall have liberty.
Chicago has the anarchists to con
tend with again. It is the real sort
this time and no mistake. The Illinois
circuit court sitting in that city de
cided that the street railways in one
part of the, city all belonged to one
company and must issue transfers and
affirmed the right of the city to fix the
fares. Under the law they cannot ob
tain a stay of judgment pending an
appeal to the supreme court and the
managers found themselves beaten.
Then they Issued a defiance to the
court and declared that they would re
fuse to issue transfers as ordered by
the court and if any of the patrons
wanted to bring any more suits against
the company they could go on and do
so. This is anarchy of the rankest
kind. It is a defiance of the law and
the courts. But the company is rich
and powerful and has a strong politi
cal pull with the republican party, as
it has been a generous contributor to
republican corruption funds'. General
Hawley declared in the United States
senate the other day that he wouldJ
give a thousand dollars for a good shot
at an anarchist. Let him go out , to
Chicago and fire away at these treet
car anarchists. Their act is just as
much a threat against government as
shooting at a ruler. As long as the
plutocrats can use the courts for their
own advantage, the courts must not
be criticised. When the courts de
cide against them, then they defy the
courts and go on with the robbery.
, Our imperialists have prohibited the
circulation of the Declaration of Inde
pendence In the Philippines and the
British imperialists have prohibited
the circulation of the psalms sent to
the Boer prisoners in Bermuda, be

David would give hope to the Boers
and keep alive their fighting spirit."
The Springfield Republican suggests
that the governor of Bermuda should
also cut oft! the sunlight for the same
reason. American and British imper-

Many requests have come to the
editor of The Independent to write
on economic subjects. The old sub
scribers of the paper would perhaps
prefer to have its columns devoted to
the current news and . politics, but
there are many thousand new ones
who are exceedingly anxious to have
the questions discussed that were
thrashed out in the farmers' alliance
and the subsequent campaigns. Many
times have new subscribers asked:
"Just what are the economic views of
the populist party?" In the main they
are the same as taught by John Stuart
Mill and the economists who are con
sidered authorities in our colleges and
universities. But new conditions have
arisen and there are new problems to
solve. In attacking these the populists
seek to find the truth by applying the
well settled maxims of political econ
omy as far as it is possible.
First of all let these inquirers be
come familiar : with economic terms.
They can make no progress at all un
til these definitions are well settled
in their minds. There are a good
many "catch phrases" that have done
excellent service for the republican
party which are not economic terms
and no respectable economist would
disgrace himself by using them. They
are absolutely meaningless. Such as
"sound money" and "good money."
Of course no one wants unsound mon
ey or bad money, but these phrases
were' used by republican speakers for
the purpose of Intimating that their
opponents did want unsound money
and bad money.
Aside from these there are a set of
terms in constant use to which the
average voter, attaches no definite
meaning whatever although he makes
constant use of them. Such are value,
confidence, representative value, in
trinsic value, credit money, primary
money, money of ultimate redemp
tion, redeemable money, and even the
word "money" Itself. No accurate
knowledge of political economy can be
had until a definite understanding of.
these terms and a good many others
has been firmly fixed in the mind.
The very first step toward under
standing populist political economy is
to accurately fix in the mind what
"value'.' is. A man who has .not a
clear idea of the meaning of that term
will always, be in a fog whenever he
attempts to. think or speak upon an
economic subject. The definition given
in works on-,; political economy is:
"Power in exchange," To the ordinary
man that is, -more meaningless than
the, term, itself.... It is therefore . neces
sary to find sqme, other definition. The
one given py John P. Jones will give a
better - understanding of it. . He says:
"Value . is human estimation, placed
on desirable objects, the quantity of
which' is limited." From this defini
tion it will be seen that value is an
idea and not anything material. That
value is an idea can be proven in
many different ways. A man wishes
to purchase a horse. He gos to horse
market and finds many different ani
mals there. How does he arrive at the
"value" of one of them? By a men
tal process. There is no other way
by which the value of the horse can be
arrived at.
It will be seen from' this that the
term "measure of value" is meaning
less. There is nothing with or by
which value can be measured. Value
is "human estimation." You "esti
mate" the value of' a thing. You can
not by any possibility "measure" it.
Now see how silly and inaccurate
the term "intrinsic value", is. The
man picks out & horse and the value
placed upon it in the estimation of the
seller is $50. He agrees to that and
takes the horse, By common consent
the "value" of that horse, is said to be
$50. According to the reasoning of
the gold standard advocates that horse
had $50 value , "In it," for intrinsic
means "inward," internal.' He takes
the horse home and finds that his
partner without his knowledge has
also bought a horse and the firm only
wants one. He takes the animal back
to the horse market and places him in
the hands of an agent for sale. Along
comes a man and the agent asks the
would-be purchaser $100 for the horse
and sells him at that price. Accord
ing to the newspaper economists that
agent by some ; process managed to
get inside of that horse's hide a hun
dred per cent more of that thing they
call "intrinsic" than was there ; an
hour or two before. How did he do it?
That value is an Idea and not any
thing pertaining to matter can be
proved in another way. Take a gold
piece called an American Eagle. The
value expressed in terms of money is
$20. If you take it to a chemist and
tell him to analyze it and tell you ev
erything that is In it, after he has
done so he will give you a certificate
to the effect that iiine-tenths of it was
pure gold and one-tenth silver and
copper and that there was nothing else
"in it." If you. should say to him
that the highest authorities in the
republican party had assured you that
there was value "in it," he would prob
ably reply" that the men who made
the statement were of unsound mind
or that they were simply lying to you.

This honored pastor in a recent letter to the Peruna Medicine Co., of Columbus,

medicine in the world. If everyone kept Peruna in the house it
would save many from death every year."
-' Yours very truly,'
Thousands of people have catarrh who
would be surprised to know it, because
it has been called some other name than

wherever located ; and another fact
which is of equally great importance, is
that . Peruna .cures catarrh wherever

profession thousands of cases are cured

idea can be said to have a basis, then
so can J value, otherwise not. The
term "representative value" is just as
absurd. A thing either has value or
it has not. One might as well talk
about representative hunger or a rep
resentative. headache as of representa
tive value.
Nothing can have value the quan
tity of which is unlimited. There
must be a limitation of quantity before
value, and usually the value increases
as the quantity diminishes. Standing
on the shores of Lake Michigan, wa
ter has no value, but in the desert
where the quantity is reduced to a
small amount its value may be very
Utility is not the basis of value.
Diamonds, pearls and gold have but
very little utility. They administer
to none of the real necessities of life,
but their value is very great. Value
is not based upon labor as the social
ists say. A machinist may work faith
fully for years and produce as a re
sult of his labor a machine that had
little or no value. Another might
work but a few days and produce
something that had very great value.
To get a fixed, determinate and ex
act idea of what the term value means
is necessary and the first step toward
understanding populist political econ
omy. Nothing in the whole economic
field of thought can become clear and
satisfactory until this is accomplished.
The position taken by Secretary Hay
and the republican administration in
jegard to making this country a base
of supplies for the British army Is
precisely that of Lord John Russell In
regard to building war ships for the
sou'th during the late civil war. The
mules and horses secured here are the
warships and privateers of the velts
of South Africa, and are of just as
much, assistance in carrying on the
war against the Boers as were
Florida and Alabama to the confeder
ate government. , This government
made hot protests against the action
of England and followed them up so
persistently that the matter was re
ferred to arbitration. England paid
$15,000,000 for thus transgressing the
laws of war and a new treaty was
made in which such acts were clearly
defined and forbidden. It is in direct
violation of that treaty that military
officers of the British government are
permitted to establish supply depots
in this country and forward, war sup-
newspapers are " demanding that this
thing shall be submitted to the courts
and a decision obtained. If the treaty
at Washington does not prohibit a
neutral nation from becoming a base
of supplies, it is high time that one is
made that does. It is natural that
Secretary Hay and Lord John Russell,
both being imperialists, should look
at things in the same way, but it does
not follow' that the courts or the
American people agree with them.
It seems to The Independent that
there should be power enough in the
democratic minority to force a publi
cation of the facts in regard to the
enormous amount of money paid to
the railroads for carrying the mails.
The greatest offender in this line is
the Pennsylvania system. It is so sit
uated that a vast volume of the pos
tal business is done over its lines. It
secured the appointment of a post
master general, a resident of the state
and for a long time the Intimate and
active friend of the management of
the road. It got one of its: own gen
eral officers, W. S. Shallenberger, ap
pointed as second assistant postmas
ter general and that ofllccT controls
the mail contracts on railroads. To
back up the postmaster general and
his second assistant the road secured
the appointment of another friend
from Pennsylyania as one of the lead
ing members of the postofflce commit
tee In the house. With all this force
always in Washington looking out for
its interests, it Is no wonder that Its
postal contracts have been mines of
wealth. Let us have all th facts.
President Roosevelt will not bring
any executive power to bear upon con
gress to force legislation, so all the
correspondents at Washington have
declared from the beginning - and we
are all bound to believe in the "staff
correspondents." That being the case
we must find some explanation of re
cent occurrences. President Roose
velt and Secretary Root lire deter
mined upon forcing a reduction of the
tariff on Cuban sugar and tobacco and
the republicans of the house are di
vided in opinion on that matter.
President Roosevelt sends for the
leaders of the opposition to the re
duction and shuts himself if up with
them for a talk. Of course he did not
bring any "executive influence"; to
bear. That would be against his nrin-
new Japanese art of defense cs!!
"Jujutsi" which the president has 1
studying, he having ordered a p
fessor of the art to come to Washi:
ton and teach him.
Then after these men go away, V
Roosevelt sends for the promin
members of the ways and means en:
mittee. Here again we must beli.
that the president did not use pxr
tlve influence to get them to push r
bill for the reduction of the tariff
Cuban sugar and tobacco. That wo
be such a shameful exercise of ep
tive authority that no one wou'd d
to accuse a high-minded man 1
Theodore Roosevelt of being guilty
such a thing. We are therefore fore
to conclude that the president til1--to
these prominent republican rn :
bers of the ways and means comm
tee about the weather, the coming
spring and the prospects for a g -crop.
This Cuban business, when
take into consideration the docum-
tary evidences that the Cuban's ha
concerning the adoption of the P! r
amendment, is a hot proposition. !
then we cannot suppose that Roo
velt would bring "executive infl
ence" to bear upon legislation.
