When the democrats begin tbeir
proposed investigation of the trusts
sf the country, will they demand in
formation as to the amount which
the silver trust has paid in behalf of
Mr. Bryan during the last four years.
According to late statistics there
are 812,643 Odd Fellows, 780,717
Free Masons, 410,000 Modern
Woodmen and 370,000 A O. U. VV.
men in the United States, or nearly
tw i and one half million members in
the four orders.
There ie the complete nucleus of a
ring in Sherman county politics at
present that needs watching very
close. If tbe farmer voter will keep
his peepers open he will discover
that some people are becoming in
toxicated with success, and that a
little turning down is the best pana
It is said that a change in parlies

at least, is very healthy for the pen

While it has been the practice of
the populists of this state iu the past
to discredit anv charge that was
made against their leaders by assert
ing that, as it came from a republi
can it would not be believed, that
day is fast passing. They got reck
less just to the extent that this
scheme for covering up their rotten
ness succeeded and from this on wdl
be expected to show up or quit.
The p< pulisl papers of late have
been doiug some tall whistling to
keep up the courage of their parly

The ‘Trust Octopus” as it is styl
ed by the allied forces io politics, as
opposed to the Republican party, is
no doubt a menace to many small
institutions of production in the U.
S , and therefore will woik a hard
whip to certain dulses of people,
more especially the “Drummer” or
traveling salesman for wholesale
houses. Business will be more con
centrated and less of that class will
be required to do the work, compe
tition in the wholesale trade will not
be so great, but so far experience
teaches us that prices will be the
very lowest possible thereby benefit
ing the consumer directly but indi
rectly throwing more men upon the
market to compete with him for
wages, thereby probably more than
overbalancing any benefit he might
derive from a trifle lower prices in
merchandise, tberofore it is the sen
timent of the people of all parties to
pass good sutlloient laws for their
restriction. That the Republican
party is indirectly the cause of the
formation of these combinations we
are uot ready to dispute, but that
that part} are any inoro to blame
for their existance than a beautiful
summer day is for being followed by
a cyclone that wrecks buildings and
destroyes life we deny. The policy
of the Republican party lias been the
harbinger of prosperity always. One
need not lake the word of any man
for this, but look up authentic politi
history aud satisfy themselven. In
our own day we know that trusts are
active when the country is enjoying
increased prosperity. Daring the
Cleveland regime, from '92 to '96,
when the country was compelled to
borrow more than five million dol
lars for every month of democratic
rule to pay running expenses, trus's
were not beard of, simply because
capitsl feared the policy of depres
sion which always has characterized
democracy. But as soon as pros
perity set in trusts became active.
Would the average voter destroy our
present unprecedented prosperity
and commit commercial suicide for
the purpose of getting rid of trusts?
When they do they are killing the
goose that laid the golden egg. Would
it not be far better to join in with
the only party that ever passed an
anti trust law and restrict these com
binations, than to again promote
democratic demoralization as w ?
have had it in the past
Dr. TurtoD, of Lexington, in his
address of welcome to the Republ
can congressional convention, last
week said, that be had been a life
long democrat but now had come to
the parting of the ways, had served
his country as a soldier in the war of
'61 to '65 and tad been a democrat
through all the yrars sinee, but he
could not nor would not endorse the
sentiment of disloyally promulgated
by the democracy in recent platforms
and speeches. Nor never would re
cognize the utterances of disloyalty
ms applauded by the populist con
gressional ccnveniion held in that
same building the week before.
