"Eternal Vigilance is the Trice or
I arrived here Sunday evening Dec.
4, since which time I have been busy
getting settled for business. 1 have
locaied at 1121 10 st N. W. and am now
just ready to attack my correspondence
which has accumulate! on my hands.
Congress met yesterday and informed
the president theylthe two houses) were
here and ready for business. The presi
dent met this with the information that
his message was ready, and would be
forthcoming on the morrow. The house
adjourned to meet today and receive
the aforesaid message which started
out with the usual assertions concern
ing the general prosperity and happi
ness of the people.
There is an unusually large number
of members present for the opening of
a second session. Everybody Is talking
politics, and the air is thick with rum
ors of all kinds, but no one seems cer
tain of anything except that the demo
crats have everything in sight. Of this
fact the republican office holders are
painfully conscious. As to future legis
lation, no one seems to have any defi
nite idea. That there will be any legis
lation in the real interest of the toiling
millions, no one seems to believe for a
moment, not even the democrats them
A little tinkering with the tariff I
think is all we can expect. But there
is one wholesome feature of the case
that is pleasant to contemplate: The
demcorats will either have to shoot or
give up the gun. They will have com
plete control of the law-making ma
chinery and if they fail to enact the
measures of relief demanded, the people
will know to a dead certainty where to
place the blame. If I mistake not the
signs of the times, they will place the
responsibility where it belongs with
As to the outlook of the people's party
it is very encouraging to me, and I
think it is the same to every one who
has not been expecting too much. We
have some independents who have been
expecting more than the facts would
warrant; and these are the ones who
are apt to be discouraged. To all such
I wish to say as I have repeatedly said:
"This fight 'for reform means a long
pull, a hard pull, and a pull altogether,
if we succeed at all. While we did not
succeed in electing a president and
only secured twelve or fifteen congress
men, we polled a tremendous vot for
a new party, a mighty nucles around
which to rally the hosts cf reform.
This vote was polled in the face of tre
mendous opposition, particularly in
Kansas, Nebraska and the south. In
my own district a most desperate con
temptible fight was waged against me
on thei part of the republicans aided
and abetted by certain democratic
leaders, and this too by men professing
to be christian tre ntlemen. tfut despite
all this contemptible work on the part
of conspirators against the interest of
the people, I was elected by a plurality
of nearly 2,500 and will just take this
opportunity to heartily thank the good
people of the sixth district for the noble
manner in 'which they stood
by me through the fight. Of, J. H.
Edmisten chaiiman of the congressional
committee I desire to say there is no
truer more earnest independent than
he: and to his untirins enenrv and tact
in conducting the campaign in the big
sixth may we largely attribute our success.
I wish also to express mv apprecia
tion of the noble, and invaluable work
done by the independent press, at the
heau oi which stands J he alliance
Independent, a paper of which everv
reformer, particularly of our own state
should be proud. It has come up as it
were through great tribulation until by
the earnest work of its editor, and pub
lishers, has reached the front rank, and
today stands second to no reform paper
in the United States. To such journals
will too people owe their falvatiom
from the grip of monopoly if they are
ever saved at all: for it is this incessant
pounding away on the evils that are
stealing the common rights of the ma
jority that tells in the end.
In closing this letter 1 wish to remind
the readers of The Alliance-Inde-
pekdent that eternal vigilance is as
much the price of liberty today as it
was in the days of Patrick Henry, and
without it our liberties are lost as sure
as time continues. Therefore let us
take courage, and push the war into
Africa. Now is tbo accepted time.
The heat of a political campaign is dy
ing out and with it much prejudice will
go and give room for truth to enter.
One of the old parties is completely
whipped. The other one has bit off
more than it can masticate, and will
choke to death in the next four years.
Now is our opportunity. Let us make
proper use of it. We cannot do this by
remaining idle or complaining of the
past. So let us all buckle our belts a
hole tighter, grit our teeth a little
harder, spit on our hands and go at

What is a Trust?
A trust is simply a big corporation
holding a supreme, nation-wide mon
opoly of a business and differs from
other corporations only in size. The
objects of a trust is the same as that of
smaller combinations. The aim of all
is to crush out competition, reduce the
expenses of the business, and concen
trate the profits into fewer hands.

Words and Bights Which Make - Many

A great deal has recently been said
upon the discomposure of the English

presence of a cat This is no novelty,
for some of the bravest and most dis

at the nose if he heard a cat mew.'
Henry IIL of France, and the Duke of
Schomberg had similar weaknesses.
This dislike to the gentlest and most
domestic of animals is unaccountable.
But there have been much stranger
aversions. Erasmus, though he lived
at Rotterdam, was thrown into a fever
if he smelt a fish. Joseph Scaliger had
a perfect horror of milk. Cardan grew
sick at the sight of eggs, however
fresh. Uladislaus, king of Poland,
was similarly affected if he saw an
apple. Boyle could not listen to the
sound of water running through a pipe;
his house was probably unprovided
with the newest improvements.

In Brazil the churchmen dress up a

red hair and bandy beard!) and give it
to the street arabs, who carry it about
until it has been riddled by stones and
other missiles and then burn it on the

The Professional Beggar Wasn't Seeking
Points About His Game.
He was standing on Forty-second
street New York, near the park. On
his breas t a placard hun? announcing
the details of a sad accident so many
years, so many months ago, place not
named, whereby the bearer had been
made stone blind for life, depriving
him of his means of livelihood. Would
generous public be so good as to re
pay him for his songs by leavinsr pen
nies in his tin box as they passed?
ihere was a piteous appeal in his
own countenance, sufficiently piteous
to have drawn money from the vaults
of a deposit company. But there was
no money in his receptacle. His lips
were moving as if he were singing, but
no sound was audible in the rustle of
the passin? crowd. A kindly man,
who had plenty of time to make his
train, dropped a quarter into the box
commiseratingly, and added this word
"Speak louder, my boy. You will
do more business."
"Come off. Don't you suppose I
know my own profession? That's a
part of the gag, and it works, too,"
the singer said, thrusting the quarter
into his pocket and still keeping the
piteous look on his face.

that he wanted to purchase something
that would be a suitable present for a
young lady. The clerk brought out
albums, books, gold pens and pencils,
and card cases, but nothing seemed to
suit As the last resort he showed the
young man an engagement calendar
a beautiful little tablet on which to
record the engagements for each day
of the week.
"Quite the fad now," he explained
as he displayed the calendar. "All
young ladies feel the need oi them,
especially during tliri season."
