t THE COMMONER LIN"S
Letters from the People
Erving Wlnfllow, Boston, Mass.
I must say a word to you to express
my feeling of gratitude which I en
tertain and which the country ought
to entertain to you for tho noble
stand you are making in Tho Com
moner for the old democratic doc
trine of tariff for revenue only.
Ross F. Stout, Erbacon, W. Va.
I believo lumber, hides and wool
should bo on tho free list. I do not
believo in a favored few. I believe
in William J. Bryan and consider
him, by far, the best qualified man
in America for our president, and
so long as I live, will do what little
I can to make him president.
Will M. Ramsey, Hartford, Ark.
I enclose $1 as renewal to The Com
moner. I expect to read it as long
as I live if Its publication continues
that long, and I presume it will, as no
other publication can take its place.
I appreciate the effort that you are
putting forth to the end that we may
again havo a government of and for
tho people. I suggest that you write
several articles explaining the differ
ent tariff schedules in such a way
as to make it plain to the common
voter. I have made a thorough in
vestigation of this matter, and not
ten per cent of the common people
understand the tariff. If you would
give a thorough schooling to the
masses continuing until the whole
tariff system has been sifted with
a request that democratic papers in
general publish each article, I be
lieve It will turn things upside down
and bring a victory to the democratic
party In a few years, an4 put you
In the White House. At. least I
A. J. Wilkinson, Grafton, W. Va.

moner relative to some of our dem
ocratic senators. The rank and file

R. G. Hlldred, Ripley, N. Y.
Your editorial, "Law or Lawlessness,
Which?" la timely. You will do the
reform element a' lasting benefit if
you will take up the issue and fight
it to a finish.
Mary E. Kuhl, Chicago, 111. Per
mit mo to thank you for your strong
words of condemnation relative to
the United States government grant
ing a license to sell liquors in anti-
saloon territory and for permitting
shipments of liquors through the in
terstate commerce law in open vio
lation of the state laws. I read your
aTticle in the "Advance" of May 20.
Only Btate and national prohibition
can remedy this monster evil.
George W. Warner, Mackinaw, 111.
Your recent utterances on the
liquor question has aroused great In
terest among tho good people who
havo been fighting the retail liquor
traffic for so many years. You say,
"According to the terms of the part
nership the government is to receive
$25 for each license issued," etc.
Without quoting the whole para
graph, it is sufficient to say that
there is an impression abroad that
the receipt given by the government
for the money paid, is not in the na
ture of a license, and does not carry
with it the right to selL contrary to
the will of, the people as expressed
in their law. The one selling usurps
a right which the government has
not given. This latter idea Is found
ed on the utterance of John C. Net
tleton, an attache of the rpvenue de
partment of the government. Am I
correct In what I have, said? I wish
you all success.
SENATOR BAILEY'S LETTER
Writing to former Governor Beck
ham of Kentucky and defending hia
conduct on the tariff Senator Bailey
of Texas said:
My vote against placing iron ore
on the free list was based upon the
ancient creed of the democratic
party, which requires all manufac
turers to pay a duty on their raw
material as long as a duty is levied
on the finished product.
Of course, I am perfectly awara
that for a few years during Mr.
Cleveland's domination of the demo
cratic party the doctrine of free raw
material was adopted as a part of the
democratic policy in the tariff ques
tion, but that was a wide departure
from our ancient and well-established
position. Not only did the democ
ratic party in the old time oppose
it is an unfair advantage to the man
ufacturers, but the advocates of the
protective system themselves ad
vanced it as one method of protec
They taught and they properly
taught that the manufacturers
sould be protected as well by reduc
ing the cost of producing their ar
ticles as by increasing the price which
they received for them. Having al
ways denounced protection in every
form as a species of favoritism to the
manufacturers, I am not now pre
pared to support it in the particu
lar form of remitting the manufac
turers' taxes on their raw material
Subscribers flawiiising Dept.
A great many of our subscribers
havo been quick to realize the hand
some profit thoy can make by adver
tising In our Little Advertisement De
partment. "Wo started this department
of little advertisements expressly for
our subscribers, so they could adver
tise at the very low price of 6 ccnta
per word, their farms, homes, lands,
surplus live stock, poultry, eggs, bees,
birds, pet stock, seeds, plants, nursery
stock, produce. Implements they had
outgrown but which were still useful,
etc. It didn't ako our big army of
subscribers long to find out that it
pays to advertise in The Commoner's
Subscribers Advertising Dopartment.
The rate of six cents per word is rela
tively much smaller than tho cent a
word rato charged by papers of 1,000
circulation. Tho Commoner has &
guaranteed circulation of 145.000, so
the actual cost to you is about 1 cent
per word for 24,000 circulation. Some
of our Subscribers now, not only ad
vortiso their miscellaneous wants, but
havo built up a regular mall order
business from these small advertise
ments, and ralso stock, etc., on pur
pose for their customers secured by
advertising. A good many sell goods
and articles of their own make, or act
as agents for manufacturers.
You can make money and build up a
nice little business of your own by
using this department to place your
proposition before Tho Commoner's big
army of readers. If you have anything
to buy or sell it will pay you jto use
this department at all tlme3.
Send us a trial order. Write just as
you'd talk. Never mind tho grammar.
Count namo, postofllce, and numbers as
ono word each. Multiply by 6 cents
per word, and send your ad. and money
order direct to The Commoner, Lincoln.
