was titlv completed by the establish
ment of that crowning outrage of the
time the national b;inkiuy system.
The overmastering power of these
corporations which are the children of
your party, is at length manifest. Not
wil'" tandie.L;' the promises of parties,
a" u. ondi 'u'ii to success at the polls,
the moiiary system of this nation is
still in Ulthands of private corpora
tions who usS it to increase their al
ready monstrous fortunes, and to multi-
public domain turned ovm as a
it v to robbers, the, finances if the
ntry in the hands of the sixulers of
the people and the public h'trhwavs of
the nation turned over bodily to high
waymen. Tin; people of the nation are weary
of beinr plundered under pretense of
law. Itobbery is still robbery no mat
ter what the form v.liich may bo yiven
to it. There is no longer justice or a
consideration of the general welfare
anywhere. The pe )plo groan and cry
out for relief from intolerable oppres
sions and are answered with sneers and
called in derision "calamity howlers."
For many years we looked to your party
for relief f rom these oppressions. Time
has at length convinced us that such
hope is vain. The enemies of the peo
ple have taken e jmplet'j possession of
your organization and it is today the
very emblem of Wall street greed and
avarice without a thought for the mass
of the people.
These facts and this condition of
things thus faintly outlined has driven
me from the party thus prostituted to
the country's ruin, and lias compelled
me, with thousands of others, to at
tempt through the people's party to re
store the people of the nation to their
rights and avert those dire calamities
which in all times have followed wick
edness in'this world.
And tli is being tho condition of mind
obtaining with me, I cannot consent in
silence that this gavel, mide of my
timber, given mo in the days of re
publican grandeur, shall bo prostituted
to tho -base'ollico of keeping order in a

gone so far from its original purposes;

Col. I 'oik's death ha called for
many expression of TTOfdUlwLgricj
and many tributes of 'respect and love
from those who knew him a? a loader
and fellow worker in the cause of indus

papers of tho nation:
His sacrifices were many, and gen
erously made. His positions were con
scientiously taken, and steadfastly
kept. He was sincere and men trusted
him. Ho was honest and able, and they
did not fear to follow him. His belief
that independent political action is tho
farmer's way out of worse than Egypt
ian bondage, was of gre.it weight when
other men as honest, but not as far
sighted, questioned such action. Not
the least of the good deeds to b3 re

the burial of sectional strife between

of America than any other mai of his

ual attainments and ability he was the
peer of any man, and his oratory was of
the highest order, enabling him to
touch the mostsusceptib'o heart-strings
of his enraptured hearers in his God
inspired appeals for truth and justice.
He possessed a heart big enough to
love the world, and of too lino a text
ure to ever for a moment admit an im
pure motive. He combined, with an
indomit ible perseverance and energy,
a pure christian manhood which en
abled him to square the problems of
every day life with the law of God. No
higher plane than his can be reached
by man. A proper conception of re
sponsibility to God, of duty to himself
and fellow man, are essential attributes
of a great leader, and t his man possessed
them in the hignest degree.

Col. Polk was a man of brilliant abili
ties, of unquestioned honesty of pur
pose, and of unequaled executive ca
pacity, as his remarkably successful
guidance of the farmers' aliiance, to its
present position as a reform factor will
attest. He was a most eloquent public
speaker, and every one who has ever
hoard him will at once recall the im
pression of intense earnestness and un
swerving loyalty to the caus.V of the
great common people which cliWaeter
