GEN. "WEAVER ON riNKEKTONS.
"I regard the situation throughout
the country as very grave, and I have
believed for some time that we are near
ing a serious crisis. If tho present
strained relations between tho corpora
tions and their employees, between
wealth-owners and wealth-producers,
continues much longer, they will ripen
into frightful disaster. When Home
was near her fall tho wealthy barons
had their I'inkortons.
''They aio an armed body of cruel
mercenaries and a me nan.; to the peace
of society and tho lives of the people.
At their .bidding bloodshed follows
close upon the heels of corporate tyr
anny. They must bo suppressed, and
tho terrible economic conditions which
have spanned this cruel army of thugs
upon the country must bo changed at
once or the republic must give away to

country like an alarm bell at midnight.

Tho following is an extract from Gen
eral Weaver's speech of acceptance at
"This 13 the grandest moment of our
civilization. It is rallying tho best
hearts and tho best heads of tho nation
around the three great contentions of
modern time3 tho great land problem,
the great currency or linanciai problem,
and the groat and oycrthadowing prob
lem of transportation. These aro the
centers around which this great move
ment is rallying. You are right, and
you will be triumphant as certain as we
aro assembled In this hall. Your faith
and your work will conquer. This is
no longer a country governed by the
people, and it is the great duty today
devolving upon tho party which you
represent t ) rescue the goverme I
from tho grasping federated monopolies
and restore it to the great common peo
ple to whom it belong?,"
II 15 WILL BE ELECTED.
General James 1. Weaver will be
elected president on the 8th of Novem
ber. To some who have not kept track
of tho great upheaval that is taking
place, this might seem incredulous, but
no man's chance? were ever better.
Cleveland and Harrison's position on
tho silver question has turned the entire
west and south against them, and they
will havo to content themselves lighting
for the. electoral vote of tho eastern
states. Weaver will carry every state
west of the Mississippi river, with the
possible exception of Missouri, Califor
nia and Oregon, and has a lighting
chance for California. Among the
southern states he will carry Texas,
Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama, Geor'
gia, North and South Carolina and Vir
ginia. Now th s article won't take up
much space so just cut it out and paste
h in your hat, and when you read the
election returns this fall, just give the
Commoner tho credit of telling you
four months in advance what the re
sult would bo Kansas Commoner.
The Coming Crisis published at
Pueblo, Col., speaks a3 follows of Gen.
Weaver's meeting at that place:
General Weaver and party were ac
corded the greatest audience that ever
greeted a visitor to the city. J ni3 is
couceded by even the partis n opposi
tion. Tho morning gold bug organ ad
mits thero were 7.000 people in the
Mineral Palace find the oveiilow meet
ing on the outside. The meeting has
opened the eyes of many sleepy headed
partisans, i he speeches made a great
impression and did much good in get
tir g some of our friends, the enemy, to
thinking. Like gatherings creeled the
party all over tho state, the mining sec
tions going wild with enthusiasm No
one can note those greetings without
realizing the great change ia the public
mind. Colorado is corceded to Weaver
by an overwhelming majority by even
prominent republicans., Unites Ihe
fi lends of freo silver are betrayed by
over-confidence, it, is only a matter of
how largo the maj ivity will bo.
A BRILLIANT, BRAINY MAN
General Weaver U a brllian,
brainy man. Hois a patriot with a
record of which any man nriy be
proud. His voice has been ever raised
for the interests of the poor and lowly,
for tho great masses of the people, and
against ihe greed and ruthless purposes
of the rich and powerful. All this is
good, but we support liiru because ho is
for Colorado, for silver, and silver is
ail in all to us. Grand Junction (Col.)
time he struck Djnver until ho passed
out of the stale on his way to Nevada
and California. He spoke to immense
audiences at Denver, Pueblo, Leadville,
Aspen and Grand Junction, besides
being greeted by hundreds and thous
ands at every town and hamlet . along
this route, in many cases making brief
ten-minute speeches to eager listeners
from the platform of his ear. Salida

ALABAMA AND COLORADO.
Alabama will bocarrled for Weaver
by 23,000 majority. So will South and
North Carolina, Florida and probably
half a dozen other southern r':uts. Let
the northern states serve Harrison the
same way and tho elert u of Weaver
by the people will bo r.s probable as
that of either Hanison or Cleveland.
A nice spectacle is presented in Colorado
truly. Tho hide-bound democratic state
of Alabama repudiates Cleveland be
bause of his enmity to silver and citi
zens of Colorado asking Colorado men
to vote lor him! lhc humilielion and
insult aro equally as great to ask a
Colorado ruaa to vote fnr Harrison.
Colorado extends her hand to Ala
bama, and in November will unite its
voto with her for Weaver and free coin
