Dear Reader: We are working for you and yours. And that
our work may bo made effective to the utmost will you not help us
in our efforts to reach and educate the people? We have no means
at command to 'send a canvasser to your neighborhood, and if we
had, no stranger could do as successful work as one who knows the
people. We must depend on voluntary help to advertise and intro
duce our paper, and we appeal to you for the cause' sake, to help
us reach as many as possible in the circle of your acquaintance.
, It need not be an expense to you. It need not take much of your
time. And by telling the truth about the Populist state paper and
handing copies to your friends you can easily induce them to sub
scribe. Is not this your part, your propaganda work? That we
oay know our helpers and communicate with them we ask that you
sign and return the appended pledge, to do simply what you can for

NO RUSHING TARIFF WORK.
The Senate Finance Subcommittee May
Not lieport for Some Time Yet.
Washington, Feb. 1 .The senate
subcommittee engaged on the Wilson
tariff bill was again at work this
morning. It has made consiJerabfe
knt v,oo ..t i r.n
ting it into Bhape to permit its being
reported to the senate as soon as had
been hoped would be tbe case.
One of the members of the commit
tee when asked what were the pros
pects for an early report said that the
question could not be answered satis
factorily. "We may," he declared,
"conclude our work within three or
four days and we may be engaged
upon the bill for two weeks yet. We
are getting on very well. We mean
to have the bill in as good shape us is
possible to make it when we do re
port it, and therefore do not intend to
rush it too much."
Senator Whit of California, who
has been interesting himself in secur
ing tanif protection to fru.ts of his
state, particularly oranges, prunes and
raisins, is receiving the assistance of
the Florida senators who are very
anxious to have the duty on oran jes
increased. Senator White is in full
sympathy with Senator Duliois of
Idaho in his effort to secure a duty
upon silver lead ores.

New-Yobb:, Feb. 13. Mr. Robert
Fulford, husband of the well-known
Ami ri :an actress, Annie Fixley, "the
child of the Sierras," who died in Lon
don several weeks ago, under, it is
claimed, mysterious circumstances,
was a passenger on the Amer
ican Line hteainsbip New York,
which arrived at her wharf about 9
o'clock this morning. Mr. Fulford
was accompanied by his sister,
- Mrs. Frazier, and by Annie Joyce,
the late Miss Flxley's maid, who
Is said to have administered certain
powders to her, thua being instru
mental in causing her death, in order
that Mr. Fulford might obtain posses
sion of her estate, valued at from
1300,000 to 1400,000. Mr. Fulford was
considerably surprised and shocked
when he learned the serious nature of
the charges. .
"The idea of charring me with seek
ing to get rid of my wife is nothing
short of silly on the face of it. What
had I to gain? Certainly no mercen
ary object would have influenced me,
' as there was no necessity for it All
the money was mine whether my wife
was alive or not. The charge of
harsh treatment of my wife la like
wise untrue. My wife and I lived
together for twenty-one years from
the time of our marriage at 1'ortland,
Ore., to her death happy and without
a separation at any time. Her death
was a serious Dlow to me.
"The assertion on the part of the
llxleys that all deeds and mortgages
belonging to Miss Pixley are In my
name is cartainly true. They are all
in my name and will remain so. Who
else would have them? It was through
my management that Miss Hxley
made her fortune. She left every
thing to me to be ditpised of as I
thought best. It was never intended
that Mrs. Fixley, her mother, should
be left unprovided for. I have taken
care of the whole family for over
"In regard to the story that I caused
my wife's remains to be cremated in
order that no investigation oould be
made into the cause of her death, I
can only say she was cremated at her
own request, and I can prove this by
the evidence of several people."
"I'm not guilty of murder or any
other crime, and have with me in an
urn what remains of my dear wife,
which I propose to place beside the
remains of our little child, who la
buried at London, Ontario.
Dr. Fleming, who attended Misa Pix
ley during her illness prior to her de
parture for England, indignantly de
nies that the powders prescribed for
her were op'ates of a powerful charao

WHAT THE FAMILY CLAIM.
BeUtlves f the Dead Aetrees
Intimate Fool Flay.
New York, Feb. ' 13. The alleged
mysterious death in London of the)
late Miss Annie Pixley, the well
known American actresa, which, to
cording to the published statement" of
ber family, was due to a conspiracy on
the part of Bobert Fulford, her hus
band; Dr. Walter M, Flemming r-nd
Anne Joyce, maid toMiaa Pixley,
has aroused considerable comuvi
among the friends of both parties.
On the part of the family their at
torney, Colonel R. J. Haire, Is vigor
ously investigating the case with a
view to securing the rights of his
clients to a share of the estate of the
actress more than attempting to prove
that Miss Fixtey'a death was dne to
her husband's desire to make waj
with her. Colonel Haire announces
be has positive evidence to prove Miss
Fixley left a will providing for her
family, and witnesses who will testif
as to the harsh treatment of his wife
by Mr. Fulford. Forgeries in the
transfer of deeds are also broadly
hinted at The case, which will eotne
np in Philadelphia, promises to be m
The estate of Miss Pixley is various
ly estimated at from $200,000 to 1400,
000. Among other things It Included
a sS. 000 mortgage on the Park thea
ter in Philadelphia. The latter. It Is
claimed by Colonel Haire, Miss Pixley
arranged, prior to her death, to be set
aside absolutely for her mother.
In connection with the charges em
anating, according to published re
port, from the Pixley , family, Mr.
Starr L. Pixley, brother of the late
Annie, said on behalf of the family:
'My sister trusted implicitly In ber
husband; he was always in full control
of her property and deposited in banks
all her money in his name, so Annie
had to go to ber husband for every
dollar she wanted to spend. Annie's
brain was In no way affected. Last
September, when she was 111, her hus
band called in Dr. Walter Fleming to
attend ber. Dr. Fleming and Mr.
Fulford were intimate friends. Annie
did not like him. and begged she be
permitted to have another physi
cian. We don't know exactly
what the powders were which were
prescribed for her, and which were
so persistently and regularly adminis
tered by Miss Joyce. We wish we
had kept one of thesa for analysis. As
it stands, however, we can only give
it as our opinion that Annie's death
was very mysterious, and her crema
tion, despite the wish of the family
that her remains be sent home, only
adds, in our minds, to the strength of
this view. The entire lack of proof
in a legal sense . prevents our making;
these charges against Fulford." ff
