the democratic party. The men who
recognize this truth now will prove
their political wisdom, and early plac-
ne themselves with a united antl-
plu ocracy party will put themselves in
the way of trusted leadership and
utmost usefulness. Bryan said:

Even more significant than Mr.
Bryan's words are those of the great
anti-gold-monopoly leader, Congress
man Bland, who thus commented on
the action of the Democratlo state con
vention and Mr. Bryan's stand against
It and its work. Mr. Bland said:
I am not surprised. It is what is
going to happen everywhere, it the
Deajocralio party takes the tamo stand.
The people are golrg to make the fight
for sliver. If the Democratic party
will make it for them, all right, but
those in tavor of it are going to get
together somewhere

government in establishing one leglulit

moved fro oi political danger, away from
the pressure of the "upj-'or ten thous

made clear. The power of possible

A man's ballot is the scepter of his
Individual sovereignty. By using it
wisely, intelligently, he maintains his
manhood and guards at all points
against the insidious encroachments of
tyranDy. 1 he ballot is the proud, in
vincible weapon of American citizen
ship, the invaluable possession of the
common people, and is Itself a recog
nition of man as man, that one man, no
matter who his parent! were, has as
much right to a place and natural means
to live as all other men, and that he
should be equally benefited by the laws
of society, each having one vote and
one only. The ballot placed in every
hand has cost millions at-u millions ol
lives, and comes down to us, out of the
struggle of the ages, as our chief in
heritance. It is the gift of earth's
countless heroes, and bears to us their
free undvine spirit.
The ballot has with us displaced the
sword we hope forever, and in the light
of advancing truth shall peacefully
settle the great questions which still
divide men, questions of equity and in
dividual rights. War, all the aggres
sive wars of history, have been engaged
in for conquest, for wealth and power
over labor. Today business is war,

the same end.

'TheDjwnfali of Certain Financial!
Fallacies" is the title of an article in
the October Forum by David A. Wells
Hut where the "downfall" comes in is a
mysUry. The first fallacy to Ml, ac
cording to lis order of enumeration, is
tbe "appreciation of gold fallacy." lie
argues that machinery has cheapened
production greatly, anl that this U the
whole cause of falling prices. Bat if
machinery cheapens production why
has it not cheapened go'd production?
Mr. Wells admits, without Uinking of
its bearing on his argument, that Mm
the mtnln and sraeUing and working
of metals new discoveries and inven
tions have been most numerous anl
successful." It ought to follow, then,
that gold would grow corretponding'y
plenty and cheap, and sustain an un
changed relation to other commodities.
The fact that it has appreciated in
value, in purchasing power, proves thar
Its value is not automatically regulated,
and that It has power to absorb all
other values.
The theory which hoacst monoxet-
alists must subscribe to ia. this, that the
quantity of gold get-avable is not cor
nered, and that when men can make
more money digging it than in produc
ing other commodities and buying it,
an increased number of men will go to
digging, or blasting and smelting it,
the gold miners increasing in number
until the other commodities and gold
have been brought back to their natural
labor-quantita'he relation.
The theory is very fine, but the facts
art all "agin' it. And the knowledge
which all men have that gold grows
dearer while other things grow cheaper,
makes palpably absurd the doctrine
tbat gold is an automatic money. It is
the best money for usurers, the worst
money for producers.
1st. Because Chief Justice Maxwell
was defeated in the convention by the
corporations, and we desperately need
at least one man on the supreme bench
who is not a tool of the railroads.
2nd. Because they believe Republi
canism is something more than a name,
and they can't consistently vote the cor
poratlon-owned, railroad-dictated Re'
publican ticket.
3J. Because at three state conven
tions the antl-railroad-rule element,
working its hardest for the able and
incorruptible judges Reese and Max
well, has been defeated by ring rule,
by pass-carrying corpora'lon heelers,
by "the Burlington autocra ;" and with
eyes now opon they must refuse to b
again bosstd by him at the polls. Three
times, and out.
4th. Because the only way left to
deal with a corrupt political machine
is to smash it with the ballot box.
6th. Because the Democratic party
is old enough to be "twice dead," and
should be "plucked up by the roots."
We recognize as the law of political
party life, that success breeds corrup
tion. Wheresoever the carcass is there
will the office seekers be gathered to
gcther. The post-nfUce vultures had
full control of the Democratic state con
vention, and driving out the only live
leader in the party left it in the
clutches of tbe insatiable goldbugs.
6th. Because the Republican party
of the nation has fallen into the hands
of the "smart" men, the smooth-tongu
ed lawyers, lying editors and Sbylock
banking fraternity. The common peo
pie, the toiling masses, have lost all
hold upon it, the leaders having no use
for them except to obediently vute the
corporation made ticketj-and bear bur
7 th. Because tbe anti-monoj: oly, an'l
plutocracy party which Judge Uolcmb
so worthily represents, is in spirit and
purpose not distinguishable from Abra
ham Lincoln Republicanism, tud has
b.-ea organized to prevent the extension
of slavery.
8th. Because RothBchildUm, rail-
roadlsa, and landlordism have in thirty
yt an of so-called Republican and Do -u
ocrat c rule got legal posststdou of hall
of our natural resources, half the basis
of our liberties, half the people ot this
great land.
9th. Because this must again be
made "a government of the people, by
tho people and for the people."
10th. Because toth thj court tnl
legislatures must both bd made the ser

London. March 25, 1893. A strange
and grotesque figure disappears from
the upper ranks of tne nooiuty witn
the detth of the Duke of Bedford.
Succeeding to the dukedom on the sui
tiJeof bis father only two years ago,
he has exhibited in intensified form the
Russell family traits, lie was practic
ally a recluse, and never bad any iati
ruaie associates. Though enormously
rich, he was a miser. Scores of acrt-s
of the most valuable property in the
heart of London belong to his etate.
His passion for saving manifested itself
when a boy at school and it remained
with him till the day of his death.
Never a day passed without his saving
something and reckoning how much he
had saved. After bis succession to the
Dukedom and the vast csta e accom
panying i, this passion Increased His
one absorbing thought was to pile up
further board, to fiud new possibilities
of retrenchment, form ways of increas
ing the anneeded surplus, and every
Cenny he continued to Invest by the
est advice procurable, in tha soundest
securities. During the last few years
he had become physically almost a
monstroglty. He was well proportion
ed and active as a young man, but the
i dulgence of a most gluttonous appe
tite soon made him corpulent, and the
very corpulence that made more exer
cise necessary prevented exerc se at all.
O; late years his habits have been most
sedentary. For days together he would
not go outside his house. His appetite
was huge; he ate, as an eminent man
who ktew feim better perhaps than any
other, descrioed it, like a wolf. He
was reputed to be tbe largest and
heavier-t feeder in England, and those
who have seen him eating say it was a
sight never to be forgotten. Heart
disease of long standing was the Ina
rm d late cause of death, but he really
died of gluttogy.
New York, March 24, 1893. The
suicide of Joseph Klersy, the Brooklyn
upholsterer, who in a moment of deliri
um set fire to his clothing and burned
to death, brought to ligbt a story of
misery. This man was 35 years old.
strong and healthy, until tbe repeated
assaults of adve'rsity crippled his mind
and his body. During all the winter

away, slowly s'arving, in order to give
food to their four children. His terri
ble dea'h has attracted so much sym
pathy for his family that mmcv is bow
coming in to aid them. Mr. Klersv,
the neighbors r-ay, was a serious honest
man, eager to work, and diligent when
work could be obtained. When the
winter bgan the upholstering business
became slack. The people who live in
that neighborhood needed all their
money to buy coal and clothing. Tney
o uld not afford to have their furniture
reraired. The liti mmey that the
Klersy's bad paved was soon exhausted,
and with ti e new ear b gun tbe struggle
for bread. Day after dav Joeph Klerey

for employment. Day after day he re

As evidence of Col. Bewick's effective
work in the campaign read the State
Journal. The Col. baa evidently been
stepping oi the Journal's worm, and
the Jourtal does the squirming in place
of the worm.
Senator Allison has left his seat in
Washington and has taken the stump la
Iowa to try to breathe a little life it to
the republican corpse of that s'ate. We
are not informed whether he expects to
remain for tbe funeral on the seventh
day of November or not.
Senator Voorhees, who is now the
champion in the senato of the repeal
bill and the mouth-piece of the presi
dent, has probably forgotten that he
first obtained his seat as a greenbacker
against Joseph E. McDonald who stood
then where Voorhees does now. But
men, like republics, are ungrateful.
The farce of Mosher's sentence and
Imprisonment is still on the boards in
Omaha, and the Journal has finally
come ont with some of the disgusting
facts in the case. Let the farce go on,
and let the procession proceed, but take
the blindfold off the eyes of the God
dess of Justice, and the balances from
her hands, and write over the entranoe
to the sanctuary, Justice is dead, and
what was once her temple has now be
come her monument.
A supreme effort is being made by the
republican press to make people believe
that the candidate for supreme judge,
with a superfluity of initiate, is a clever
man. Brethren this is not necessary.
Mr. Harrison has not been attacked
personally. It is his crowd that needs
defending, and the methods it used to
nominate him. Let us hear a few ex
cerpts Mr. Journal, if you please on this
point. It is methods not men that Re
publicans are kit king about. The cre
ated never rises above the creator,
Cleveland always excepted.
The Journal says it may be well to
state that the Mr. Cbappell who is run
ning for county commissioner on tbe
fusion ticket is not the republican vete
ran of the same name. That is true,
but we rise to state that the Mr. Miller
running on the Independent ticket for
sheriff is not the Mr. Miller who is run
ning for county commissioner on the
Republican ticket. The names are
very similar but the men and their
habits are very different. Our candi
date for sheriff is a picture of health
the other fellow is a victim of a severe
case of rheumatism.
The following with the exception of a few
typographical errors ia taken from the dally
Journal ot Oct 24, said to have been composed
