    THE POWER OF MONEY
TERRIBLE MEANING OF ITS USE
IN THE LAST ELECTION.
If Bout of Money Power that Ihey
Can Do It Again la Well-fouade 1, the
He public Is Uuomcd Now la the
Tiaae for Patriot to Ponder.
Corruption k'n l.
The use of tens of millions of money
to elm Major McKiuley proves Itcyond
controversy that tbe rich are opposed
to republican governments "deriving
their just power from the consent of
the governed." The contest, says the
Silver Knight, was not between citi
zens of the United State exercising the
right of franchise according to their
best judgment, but between the people
on tne one sidi? and the money powers
on the other. The money used by the
prevailing party was not expended to
give the voters an opportunity to freely
exercise their choice as citizens, be
cause no large expenditure of money
could be legitimately imed for that pur
pose. The vast sums of money expend
ed were confessedly used to Influence
the election and to prevent a free vote
and an honest count. The poverty and
dependence of vast multitudes of suf
fering people and the dishonesty of oth
ers furnished the opportunity, which
wag seized by the money powers, to
subvert the will of the people. If It be
asserted that the same result would
have been attained without the use of
THE NEW GODDESS OF LIBcRTY.
Lyman J. Gage, the new Secretary of
turn ne Daniting interests o. the country
money, we ask, Why were such vaat
urns of money collected and expended?
There Is no necessity of knowing the
exact amount of money which the vic
torious party employed.
If the power of money can enable the
rich to seize the government, as was
done in the bust election, the capacity of
man for self-government is a myth and
free Institution are a failure. The
pending of $50,000,000, or even $10,
000,000, In a Presidential election shows
that the republic is In danger from con
centrated wealth. Nothing can do
more to destroy the faith of the people
In free institutions than the fact that
the party which spends the most money
In elections Is certain to be victorious.
When the honest voters feel that the
votes they cast are to be neutralized by
the corrupt use of money in the pur
chase of vote or the manipulation of
election returns, they will ceae to re
gard the elective franchise as a protec
tion of their rights or as furnishing
them the power to maintain the free
Institutions established by the fathers.
They will naturally look upon the mon
ey power aa their enemy, and when !
they are satisfied that resistance to the
encroachments of concentrated wealth
at the ballot box la Impossible history
will repeat Itself In thla country and
anarchy or revolution will follow. The
audacity and arrogance of the whole
sale vote buyers In calling the people
anarchists because their ballots are
bonest are exaspeiatlng In the extreme.
What proof have tbey that the 6.500.-
C30 who voted for Bryan were not actu
ate by the purest motive of patriot-
tat What claim hare those who ex
pended tens of millions to get votes

foundations of free Institutions are sub
vened. Nothing that the incoming adminis
tration can do can rejiair the injury to
civil liberty which the expenditure of
ten of m.uiun of money inflicted in
the last electiuu. No matter bow good
Major McKiuley 's administration may
be, it can never beat (lie wound which
the corruptiunisis who elected h:w in
flicted upon our institutions. We al
ready hear the boa-sis of concentrated
wealth that the means they employed
to prevent a fair election in IKxi wll
be redoubled if necessary four years
hence. We are told on every hand that
money Is too powerful for the people
of the United States, and that, what
ever happens, the money powers will
rule the country. If this be so, the
rule of the people i already over
thrown, and thia is an oligarchy of
wealth and not a republic of free men.
We call the attention of the rich and
powerful, who now seem omnipotent,
to the history of the past and wars
them against the danger of forcing the
eople to desperation. The people of
the United States are long suffering.
They hive law and order and will sub
mit as long as hope remains, but such
examples as were furnished at the last
election of wholwale corruption by the
ue of vast sums of money will destroy
hope, and when that Is done we have
no' the heart to predict what must nec
essarily happen. If the money pow
ers deny that they are making war on
free Institutions, we simply call atten
tion to the money they expended In the
last election. No excuse exists, no
apology can be given, no explanation

can be made, for the expenditures of
the vast sums of money which were
used In tbe last election. It means cor
ruption, rraud, anarchy and misrule
and nothing else. The people still have
faith, and they are organizing to again
face the enemy of free Institutions .t
the ballot box In 18!i8 and lJKXi.
We believe that civil liberty is not
lost, and that the people will rally and
by constitutional means restore the
government of the United States to
the people, for whom It was ordained.
If they cannot restore it, we fear that
the great republic will be the last ex
periment of free Institutions, on this
earth. If liberty cannot be preserved
In free America, the anarchy, blood
shed and barbarism which will follow
will exceed tbe aecamulated horrors
which history records in the destruc
tion of former civilization.

It was only a few years ago the Den

brash, but wait and see If our phophecy
does not come true. Tbe greatest and

The campaign cry of "i ;overnmeut

sounds somewhat sarcastic when one
of the greatest financial Institutions of
Chicago lies in Its death struggles.
Some of those very orators who assert

Is not a tit subject for exultation by

terrible calamities and suffering upon
those beneath them. Wheu a batik or

calamity and genuine cause for gen
eral sympathy.

When a lank assumes the task of
taking the money of other people and
holding it in safe keeping It Incurs a
moral rionibll!ty from which no
amount of merely legal technicality can
excuse it. The case in point is that
of the Dime savings bunk, which has
been paying "its depositors 30 cents on
the dollar. The people who deposited
In this bank iM-long to the Industrious
saving men and women, many of whom
have amassed comparatively small
sums after years of effort They went
to the liauk In iierfect good faith, and
the liank cheerfully accepted their de
posits. In all good faith those deposits
should be repaid in full. Instead, 30
per cent Is offered, ami the depositors
seem to be glad enough to get even
that. They can't get the rest of their
money for possibly months to come.
Wisely administered hanks will al
ways find patronage from depositors so
long as they deal fairly. But the case
of the IUme savings institution sug
gests with peculiar force the advanta
ges which would accrue from the pos
tal savings bank system, which would
give to every small depositor the ab
solute assurance that bis money is In
safe hands. With the whole United
States government behind it, the pos
tal bank simply could not fall, however
it might be managed.-Chicago Rec

Ilanna's claims to Senatorial honors
at the hands of the Republicans are
two-fold. Iu expertnesa as a boodle

It Is due Ross Ilannn to add that, hav

Reform Reflection,
If McKlnley Is really the advance
agent of prosperity, he has got a long
start of bis employers.
If money talks, it would be Interest
ing to know what It ha to say about
the recent bank failures.
The persistency and bit term as with
which Hryan Is being abused by tbe
Republicans Indicate that bis chances
for 1000 are steadily Improving.
Hanna calls McKlnley the Moses of
America. As Hanna Is doing all he can
to create a wilderness for the President
to grope through, he ought to know
what kind of Moses it takes to com
out politically alive.
