Is not this the perfection ef slavery?
Is not this a condition more debased,
more truly and thoroughly degraded
than was that of the black man whose
weight in tbe ballot-box used to be
counted without the wretched mockery
of dragging the unwilling carcass to

their political task-masters at the

Must It be so? Must we continue
in this debasing servitude? Can there
be no remedy found?
None none whatever, but to do

A correspondent sends the Topcka
Advocate a series of questions tc
which he desires answers:
Question Why was the exception
clause placed upon the greenback?
Answer To enable the gold bugj
to buy them at an lmmenso discount
and invest them In latere t bearing
bonds at par a speeulation in the
profits of whioh those who made the
law have shared.
Question Is it a fact that thero
was a law on the statute books roquir
log duties and intere t to be paid In
Answer That was the Import of
tho exception clause ltsalf. The green
back was made a legal tender for all
publio and private debts except duties
onimports and interest on tbo public
debt" The effect of the exception
was just this: the importer was com
polled to have gold to pay duties. He
had to buy of those who were hoard
ing, for the purpose and pay, in free a
back whatever price was aslrad for
it Tho gold broker took the green
backs, which he reseived at immense
discounts, and Invested them In gov
eminent bonds at par. The importo
paid the gold he had purchased at
heavy premium, to the government
tor duties at par. Ihe government
then paid It back to the gold broker
at par, as interest on tho bonds he had
purchased with the greenbacks, and
was then ready to sell it again to the
next importer at nnether premium lor
more greenbacks wi,th which to buy
more bonds. In this manner gold
circulated in a circle' as long as Ibei-e
wore any bonds in the market. la
the mean time the importer added the
premium he paid for gold to the price
of his gooda and tho consumer of the
goods footed the bill.
Question If the currency was con
tracted, what did Hie people get in re
turn for it?
Answer They got an Interest bear
ing alebt saddled upon them, which is
Question Does the money power
hurt the people, and if so. in what

transportation rates, in combinations
for the monopoly of the business in

first verse and chorus ai-e as follows:
No trespass here! Get off theearta!
You own no land upon it :
You've lot for aye your right of birth,
And we hy'inlght have won tt.
We landlord all have got you down,
A li-t f nonrest tenant;
So climb the air. or Jump and drown,
And thus do dyln penance.
Get off. get off. get off the earth!
Our titles prove we own It;
The Hhadows are fleeing away;
The light of the dawn is Increasing
And evil slinks back from the day.
As a bridegroom that leaveth his chamber,
Rejoicing in strength for the race.
Thou foment! thoucomest! thou comest!
And Heaven is seen in thy face.
Its glory has gtlded the mountains.
And soon, where the spoiler has trod.
We shall follow thy feet to the fountains
And beautiful gardens oi ioa.

United we stand ! Do you he:vr it,
Ve workers who struccgle alone?
Iu union is strength, ami they fear it,
Who reU?n on monopoly's throne.
When workers united demand it,
Denning and voting for right,
No power upon earth can withstand it,
No law of the tyrants we Gght.
Unite, then, unite.
O workers, with ballots, unite!
