The last two issues of this paper have
csntained a number of inspiring poems
which are excellent for recitations, espec
ially the following: "Plowman Kern,"
"Freedom," "There's something wrong."

Debt means two things, higher prices
in the beginning, and interest in the end.
About 95 Per cent of the business of
this country is done on credit, because
there is not enough money iu the country
to pay as you go. When tbe proper

Debt is tha monster that absorbs all tbe
profits of labcr. It is also the threat which
the money power holds over the heads of
the people to compel them to vote as the

The corporation organs of the state
adopt inpeniyus methods of meeting the
demands ot the people's party for more
money, "They never miss an opportunity
to mention the large surplus in the
banks." The 15. & M. Journal of the 14th
la its discretion of the attractions of the
city of Lincoln said that the banks in the
state of Nebraska had on deposit 43,511,
043 dollars. Sq far as the money la tbe
banks of Nfebra.ka is benefitting the far
mers and business men, the Journal might
as well have told them that the banks In
the state of flew York or Englaud had
plenty of money. The people's party does
not deny the fact that there is plenty of
money in the banks. They even cite this
fact as argument that the money of the
country has been driven out of the chan
nels of commerce to the banks by the
adoption of the shrinkage policy, that
drives men into baiikruptcy.
When times are good money does not
pile up in the banks, it is in the hands
of the people going from one to another,
making exchanges, employing labor. The
proper function of money is to circulate,
not to lie idle in the banks.
Friends of reform, be not discouraged.
The sunlight of truth is fast breaking
through the clouds of prejudice and
ignorance asd the day of our deliver
ance is not for distant. The politi
cal revolution now on foot in this
country will sweep It from Maine to Cali
fornia, and will over ride all opposition.
Never in the history of this revolution,
which has been cn Jfoot for sixteen years
have we had such reason to rejoice in
the hope of a happy realization of our
expectations as we have to day The peo
ple are waking up to a realization of the
fact that they have been robbed, outraged
and insulted by a set of poitical pirates
and boodlers who are in the employ of a
great combine of banks, trusts, syndicates
and corporations. The daylight of politl
cal independence is breaking in every
state, and the people are rallying under
the banner of the People's party. They
are coming frDm the cotton fields of tne
south; they are coming from the corn
fields of the west; they are comtng fron
the mills, mines and factories of the
north and east, pressing forward on the
high road to progres and reform demand
ing only eo,ual!tyand justice. They ask
no more, they will take no less.
Be not discouraged ye old guard who
have grown gray battling for the rights
of the down trodden and oppressed of our
land. Onward with the banner of free
dom, and plant it upon the inner walls of
the citidel of treason. J, I). Romike.
"Good Boads'' a side Issue.
Wahoo, Neb , May 14, '92.
A prominent daily newspaper was re
cently "caught in the act" of perpetrating
the following on its readers, editorially:
"The farmers and townsmen of this state
should bring the question of the getting
of good country roads Into politics this
year. No man should be favored for
membership in the legislature unless he
is willing to announce himself a suppor
ter of the new idea. The farmers of this
region have a deep and large interpst in
this matter. 'Good country roads' should
be their slogan."
The above rot is taken from the edito
rial page of the World-Herald ot May 7th.
and th-i aforesaid page has standing at its
head in bold face type, "an independent
paper," and the same is a sample ot tne
twaddle about "country roads" served up
not only by the World-Herald but by the
Bet and State Journal, almost every day.
It is tiresome. One might suppose that
the silk stocking proprietors of these
sheets had sometime been in the country,
to the damage of their patent leathers. To
so suppose however is a mistake, they
never get out into the country, or they
would know better than to write such
trash, even in this unprecedented season
of mud. Mo, it is not because their fine
hose have been ruined by country mud
that" they have become so zealous for the
betterment ot the luckless farmer and
villager, but because the aforesaid farmer
ana villager have come to understand that
their material betterment can be accom
plished by united politichl action, to the
end of radically increasing the volume of
money, nationalizing railroads and the
telegraph, and destroying monopoly in
land and the natural resources. And these
fuglemen of the wealth gathering class
would urge men, having such high re
solve to take "country roads" into politics
jso they may forget these higher resolves.
IA fine estimate that, of the mettle of
Vhtch these "farmers and townsmen" are
Xnade. They seek simply to create a
side issue, a diversion onto "country
Our roads are poor enough, some of
them, that Is true; but the man who will
attempt at this time, with the public
mind in its present state of determination
to avert approaching slavery of the mas
ses, to make "country roads" a political
slogan, would be fit only to Inhabit an in
stitution for the feeble minded.. Country
roads may do for a republican or demo
crat "slogan," and indeed it might indi
cate a higher grade of intelligence than
that of ' tariff" and as such we may com
mend it to the old parties, either of

And mechanics can rid themselves of the
perpetual tax levied upon Industry, for
the benefit of capital, If they can destroy
the monopoly of money transportation and
those gifts of nature to man,-the mines

holders of those monopolies, they can

tbe average, two mile of road to every

dollars, which is about twice the assessed
valuation of the average section of land In
the state. To "inflate the currency," is
bad statesmanship, so say these hidebound
apologists for robbery, but to Invest
twice the value of the land in roads is a
policy worthy of being made a cam
The first hinderance to local internal
improvement is the perpetual drain from
the resource of this industrious pople
ia the form of interest, rents, dividends
and tariff taxes. If the World Ee a'4 and
its kindred, really desire to have better
roads, the thing for tbem to do is to help
us educate this people into the knowledge
that this drain of wealth from the body
politic, thrwgh interest etc., is Uke the
waste of blood through a cancerous ulcer
of tbe tody natural, having but oue end,
if unsuppressed: deterioration, decay and
ultimate death. Sufficient wealth passes

year, to the capital holding class of old

But when this is suggested to the flae
haired eeutlemen who edit daily newspa
pers of the state, they yell "visionaries"
"addlepates", "pauper political Jecono-
mists" and other drivel tit only to emmate
from the cerebellum of idiocy.
Na. "country roads" will not be a
"slogan" in this year's campaign. Hepubo
democracy will continue to rant on the
subject of tariff; but the "slogan" of the
people's party will be "down with monop
oly in money, transportation and land,"
and sounds thereof will reach the ears of
Christendom: the wage slaves of the east

exposes some of the "beauties of protec

them exposed. Mr. Braden has sent us

which we have been able to use on ac
count of their length :
FACTS ON WHICH I CHALLENGE DENIAL.
1. Gen. Garfield stated on the floor of
Congress, that by personal inquiry and
investigation h learned that that the salt
monopoly of Central New York heavily
protected, sent salt through Buffalo, and
90 miles beyond Buffalo, Toronto, Canada
and sold it to Canadians one dollar per
barrel cheaper than they sold it to rest
dents of Buffalo in the United States.
2. J. G. Blaine in his reply to Glad
stone stated that American manufacturers
were now underselling their foreien com
petitors, in unprotected competition, in
the maikets or the world.
3. T. B. Reed stated that either "reel
procity" was a mistake, or the plea for
protection was false. Reciprocity would
compel all persons of sense to ask the
question: Why d manufactures need
protection in the United States, against
foreign factories, u they can, unaer reel
orocitv compete in unprotected com
petition with the same factories in o;hef
4. The writer can produce the affidavit
of a resident of New Brunswick that a
manufacturer of safes in Boston let him
have a $125 safe, paid Canadian tariff and
transportation, and gave him such a is
count, that the manufacturer had left in
his pocket, $35 less than his list price to
residents of the United States. The writer
has seen the safe.
5. Manufacturers of steel rails, a heav
ily protected industry, underbid all for
eign competitors, those against whom they
demand so much protection in the United
States, in furnishing rails to Mexican
C. Manufacturers of steel rails paid a
Canadian tariff of seven dollars a ton, ani
underbid British factories, that paid no
tariff, in furnishing rails to a Manitoba
7. There are in Harrison county Mis
souri, two singer sewing machines, that
were manufactured in Hew Xork, sent
across the ocean, transportation and
British tariff Daid on them. I hn tney
were purchased by two brothers McClure,
transportation paid on them from Glasgow
to Bethany in northwest Missouri, and
when they were placed on the platform
in Bethanv. they cost the McClures $15
each, less than Singer authorized his agent
to ask Jn Uethany.
8. In foreign editions of the "Engin
eering add Mining Journal" and of the
"American Mail and Export Journal,"
editions that are carefully restricted to
foreign circulaiun, and not allowed to cir
culate in the U-iited States, in circulars
and nrice lists circulated in foreign land?.
American manufacturers have flooded
forpkm lands, with advertisements, otter-
ins1 to Dut on ship-board in New York
their wares, at prices below what their
foreign competitors can afford to sell, and
at a reduction of from 30 to 80 per cent
below their list price to Americans at
their factory doors.

How a Mtaaotui Farmer (iot Left sa Maaaj
That Wh Not Flat.
The discussion of tha money ques
tion just now reminds me of a Utile
circumstance that occurred back in
1880. writes J. R. Miller la the Chi
cago SentloeL I was living in Slater.
Saline county, Ma. and at the head
and also the foot of a Greenback
newspaper. It so happened that one
day while I was sitting on a nail keg
taking notes for my paper, a promi
nent larmer and a hard money Demo
oorat came in and called for a dollar's
worth of coffee. I will add just here
that the nail teg was in a grocery
store, and the grocery man read tbe
Sentinel. Well, to go on with my
story, the coffee was duly weighed
out and the farmer planked down a
trade dollar on the counter.
That's worth HO cents," said the
"Ninety cents!" and tho hard money
farmer glared over the top of his
spectacles at the grocery man.
That's the size of it," said the
"But perhaps you are mistaken In
the dollar," said the hard-money far
mer. "Perhaps that's the kind of a
dollar you are thinking about " and
he fished out a standard dollar from
bis wallet aud shoved it under the
grocery man's nose.
"That's worth 100 cents," said th
grocery San, as he tossed it into his till.
Then the hard money farmer got
upon his had legs and pawed the air.
You fool, " said he, ' -don't you know
that there is seven and a half more
grains of 6ilver in that dollar on the
counter than the one you just got?"
"I know all about that, " said tho
Then why ain't it worth more
than the other dollar?" asked the
Beca'- it don't have the fiat,"
said the grocery man.
."What do you meau by fiatP'"
asked the farmer.
"I mean the fiat ot law; the decree
of the United States government,"
said the grocery man.
" hat's the difference in the read
ing: on the two dollars," asked tho
farmer, who was evidently getting in
terested in tho matter;,
'This,'' (aid the grocery man, hold
ing up the standard dollar, "this
says -United States of America, One
Dollar;' which makes it worth 100
cents wherever our Aug floats, but that
dollar there on the counter says
United States of America, Trade Dol
lar,' which makes it worth only Its
bullion value, or whatever you can
get for it."
The h I you say!" said the
hard-money farmer, as a flood of
light began to penetrate his be
"But this dollar says 'In Gcd we
Irust,' he continued as he picked up
his trade dollar.
"Yes." said the grocery man, ' but
you can't trust Him for more than 90
cents on that dollar, while Uncle
Sam's dollar is always worth 100
"Then Uncle Sam is a bigger
man than God Almighty," said the
"He is when it comes to making
money, said the grocery man.
Well, I'll go over to the bank and
see. I have been saving them for a
long time, because there was more
silver in them, and would be worth
more, and I thought I could get
premium on them after awhile; but
instead of a premium I have lost jus
20 cents on the dollar, and will lose
at least one dollar on that jar full.
But I see now tin., it is not the stuff
that makes the money, but the law;

the g-rocery man.

farmer, "and whon I get home I am

The trouble with mauy reformers is
that they are unreasonably impatient,
and if things do not come as they
want them to come, at their bidding,
and everybody does not think jsst as

from tho movement. The editor of

faithfully for many years, almost
doubted that they were really what
they thought themselves to be. But

Gentlemkn: Your favsr of thelJthinst. duly received. According to the--description
of the wire you have used, I would say, that itls just what we want..
We have no wire nearer than N. Y., so you had better arrange for your own-
wire, unless your gates are so constructed that we can put on the wire without
much trouble and you allow us the difference. Make our order seventy-eight, .
including the one sent to Chicago instead of seventy-iive as was ordered.
Yours truly, Southwestern Steel Post Co.
