2 THE ALLIANCE-INDEPENDENT. IIHIiAL mm What the the Papers Have to Say About People's Candidate lor President. General Weaver's Record, His Views, His Meetings and His Pros pects of Success. A Calamity Howler. Who was the very first man in con gress to oppose the destruction of legal tender money? (Jencral Weavor. Torso doing ho was styled by the curs who were engaged in roobing the people as a calamity howler. Who was tho first man in congress to point out the results that would follow tho demonetization of silver? (leueral Weaver. For so doing ho was styled by the money power as a calamity howler. Well, all wo have to say is this: He told tho truth, and the calamities he predicted twenty years ago are now upon us. To be a plain "calamity howler' ot General Weaver's dimensions U a calamity mo&t devoutly to be wished for. Sinco tho money power assumed con trol of legislation tho country has been mighty short on statesmen A statesman, gentle reader, is a man who can look ahead and correct ly prophesy the futuro effect of legisla tion. General Weaver called tho turn on old Judas Iscariot Sherman fifteen years ago. Therefore, a calamity howler must be only another name for a statesman. Denver Uoael. 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 corporate despotism. "The frightful condition of affairs in Pennsylvania will strike tho whole country like an alarm bell at midnight. Public sympathy will - naturally be with the men struggling to exist upon the earth and for their lives and little ones." "TOE SAME OLD AVEAVF.ll." So says the Chicago Tribune, and for once that unreliable tool of monopoly hit tho nail square on tho head. Yes, "it'!!! tho same old Weavor." The "same old Weaver" who, in ISSO.agamst the most adverse circumstances, polled 350,000 voics as the candidate if the greenback party. Tho "same old Weaver," who, during his two years in congress, made thing so hot for tho two old parties that tbey fairly turned heaven and earth to do- feat his re-election, which they accom plished only by outrageous lying and scattering 'Wall street money like leaves of Jhejprgs.t over his entire. d is- Syracuse, Saturday eveniDsr, Auguat W. n the government's depositing $00,000,000 a uong national banks as acompensa-; tion to partisan politicians for services rendered. It's the "same old Weaver" eo noted in political debates for calling thing3 by their right names and giving ligures and dates and book and page. It's the "samo old Weayer" whom the farmers and mechanics of tho whole country havo been booming for presi dent for tho j ast twelvo months and who, next November, will make both Cleveland and Harrison look ten times picker than did Bsnnie when he heard (Jreshani was going to run. Yes, Mr. Tribune, it's tho "game old Weaver.. Chicago Express. NGIiLE WORDS. Tho following is an extract from Gen eral Weaver's speech of acceptance at Omaha: "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. A ElUSEU. 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.) Sttir. 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 (Col ) Sentinel. 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 age Rocky Mountain News. Ouster County In Line. Broken Bow, Neb., Aug. 10, '92. Tho independents held a rousing rally here last night lasting until after midnight. This is tho homo of Cok gressman Kom and his reception was exceedingly gratifying. His appearance waa tho signal for the greatest elemonstrations of applause which havo ever been witnessed at a political gathering hero, being re newed again and again. Tho people recognize in Mr. Kem a mail-clad war rior who is thoroughly devoted to tho common people against organized cor ruption and cupidity. lion J. W. Euger:on made a forcible speech and won many friends. The meeting was also addressed by Hon. 1). McCall and Win. Gray, candidate for stato senator, each of whom presented tho people's cause in a way calculated to yield a harvest of votes. The meeting was held in the largest opera house in tho city which was packed to the doors tho people remain ing to the close. The famous Cat Creek rendered some of their best Altogether the meeting was a marked contrast to the s'imly attended alTair, gotten up by the republicans a few weeks ago and indicates that the peo ple cannot be fo'ded longer by old party hacks ana tariii bluster. glee club selections.
