BY HAMLIN GARLAND.
We have seen the reaper toiling in the heat of summer sun,
We have seen his children needy when the harvest work was done, ?
Wo have seen a mighty army dying hopeless ono by one,
While their flag went marching on!
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah,
While their flag went marching on.
O the army of the watchers how they swarro the city street;.
We have seen them in the midnight where the Goths with Vandals meet,
We have shuddered in the darkness at the noises of their ieet
But their cause goes marching on.
Chorus. ' ." .' '. " .' "' '
Our slaver's marts are empty, human flesh no more is sold
Where the dealer's fateful hammer wakes the clink of leaping gold,
But the slavers of the present more relentless powers hold, .
Though the world goes marching on.
But no longer shall the children bend above the whizzing wheel;
We will free the weary women from their bondage under steel;
In the mines and in the forest worn and hopeless man shall feel
His cause is marching on. -
Then lift your eyes, you toilers, in the desert hot and drear,
Catch the cool winds from the mountains, Hark! The river's voice is near;
Soon we'll rest beside the fountains and the dreamland will be here
As we go marching on.

distorted the reports. The press has
shaken my respect for the old bible
stories. I used to believ that Ananias
and wife were struck dead for falsify
ing, but I don't now. Applause You
have no idea of the grand ovations we
have met with. Never before in the
history of America has any presidential
candidate received such ovations as
General Weaver." -"
She spoke of the great Senator Stew
art of Nebraska, who has been out cam
paigning for Weaver: of Governor Pen
noyeriof Oregon who has done the same.
She said there, is no hope for the south,
or the west, or the republic except in
the people's paity.
Her speech was ono of the most able
and eloquent ever listened to by an

spoke at AuSurn. The opera bouse
was crowded. She was greeted with
round after round of applause.
GENERAL WEAVER AT NORFOLIf.
Norfolk, Neb., Oct, 31. The city
ha? been completely in possession of
the independent today. They have
been coming: in on train? and in wag
ons, on horseback and on foot; from all
parts of the county, despite the fact
that a cold, dismal rain has been pour
ing down all day. The attraction was
General James B. Weaver, who ad
dressed the crowd in the opera house
The Hulbert & Lef twich mammoth cir
cus tent had been provided for the oc
casion,but tho rain prevented its being
used, consequently many failed to hear
tho speech, as the opera house was en
tirely too small for the crowd. General
Weaver delivered a telling address,
simple, strong and logical. He devo
ted a large part of his time to the
money issue, which he clearly defined
and illustrated. In speaking of his late
reception in some parts of Georgia Mr.
Weaver stated that to his knowledge
the interruptions were work of youth
ful hoodlums and rowdies, and not in
any instance wer.; "X-Confederate sol
diers connected Willi them.
During his remarks ho gave his
reasons for withdrawing from the re
publican party, which was that it had
long since ceased to represent the cause
of tha poor and oppressed wrkingman
of this nation, lie was frequently in
terrupted by storms of applause, whioh
it was : ivldent came from the very
hearts of his audience General Weaver
closed his remarks with an appeal for
independents to stand by their paacir
pics on election day.
WEAVER AT GRAKD ISLAND.
In epito of the mud and the drizzling:
rain, crowds of people turned out to
hear General Weaver at Grand Island
on Tuesday. Ho spoka ia tho old sugar
palace. Ho was greeted witn tnunaer
ous applause. He discussed tho situ
ation at length, and described tho won
derful uprising of the people. He says
Alabama will bo won for tho people's
party by 50,000.
What Crounse Thinks of the Old Sol
diers. The following is clipped from tho
Kearney Standard of last week:
" do not believe that anyone took into
consideration at the time he enlisted, the
lcind of money he was to receive for his
strikes. Is there a man here that is dis
satisfied with the pay he received? (An
swers yes, yes, by at least a dozen voices
Then you are wanting in patriotism, yow.
are cowards or bounty jumpers and never
fired a shot at a rebel, and went into the
army for the money there was in it. "
We, the undersigned ex-union sol
were diers present at the joint discus
sion between Gen. C. H. Van Wyck and
Lorenzo Crounse on the 8th day of
October, 1892, and we hereby certify
that the above is substantially tho
language used by Crounso in his reply
to Van Wyck's demand that : the sol
