W can Have Safe, Kqul table Money and
Prosperity for all Without Issuing
Editor Independent: In the nam1?
Of common sense what must the peo
ple's party do when our leading reform
papers declare that we cannot have
scientific money without the aid of
bonds. Is it not setting aside religion
and tolerating sin and selfishness in
its most dreadful form. Is not our na
tion already drunk with imperialism;
are we not paying for the royal band
wagon, and for all the music the war
dogs and filibustering parties are a
mind to give us?
Is not our republic hanging in the
balance with religion on one side and
with bondholders and filibustering
parties on the other side?
Just as long as the privilege to issue
bonds, this dreadful wicked crime
against civilization, is tolerated by the
people no true Christian can ever hope
to have a reform, the bond system can
never be made to harmonize with a
republic, and must be eradicated be
fore we can expect God Almighty to
bless us. We are intelligent beings and
God is going to hold us responsible
for what we do. As an intelligent and
relisious people God is going to re
quire of us to cast our ballots upon
the side of religion, and he will protect
s. and if we are not willing to do it,
we must surrender to the bondholder
and our republic must go down to
wreck and ruin just as all other pow
rfnl nations have cone.
The way out: By a direct vote of
all the people against the privilege
to issue bonds and for government
nanpr monev made a full legal tender
without the aid of bonds or the use of
metal monev. We can have a sate and
sound financial policy that will protect
u: without the aid of a standing army
from all the ravages of other nations.
We can have civilization and peace;
we can be out of debt and have na
lonal independence, prosperity and
happiness and all the blessings tnat
God has in store for us.
Worse Than Republicans.
Editor Independent: I see that you
will send The Independent free for
three weeks to anyone that wants to
know alxrnt the people's party. I want
to know more about it, but I do know
that if all the people that are op
posed to this rotten administration
would drop the old, rotten democratic
party and vote with the people's par-,
ty we might get some reform. I have
lived long enough to know what the
derflocrats .did in the fifteen states.
These organizers are of the same
stamp and the people will never trust
them. They are just an auxiliary to
the republicans and meaner because
they are hypocrites employed to split
the democratic party in the interest of
the republican administration and with
their corruption fund they will be very
apt to do it I hope you will help
Bryan to bring together the folks that
are opposed to this rotten administra
tion. J. F. SHEPHERD.

How He Settled The Strike.
Tho' I've hunted down the grizzly
And the mountain lion, too,
Tho' I've heard without a tremor
From Comanche and from Sioux,
When I tackled J. P. Morgan,
I'd a shaking in my knees
I would rather see another have
That hot job, if you please.
But I wrote to Pierpont Morgan
And I said, "Sir, if you like
You can be real good to Uncle "
Sam and end this awful strike."
What his answer was exactly
But I think he said, "Send somebody
To see me on my yacht"
So I got up in a hurry
And I said to Mister Root,
"Pack up your duds right sudden
And to J. P. Morgan scoot
Tell him that election day
And winter both are near
And if the strike ain't settled
We're going to lose, I fear." -
Oh! Joy! His gracious message
Quickly came to' cheer my heart.
Said he. "I'm feeling pretty good;
For Washington I start."
So let's all hurrah for Morgan,
He's the kind of man we need,
And when we start to down the trusts
We'll put him in the lead.

' The advance sheets of "Poor's Man
ual" for the fiscal year ending June
30, 1902, present a statement of the
growth of railroads in this country
which is almost incredible. The mile
age of roads increased by 4,453 miles,
the total now being 198,000, of which
about 195,000 miles are in operation.
The gross earnings were $1,612,448,826
and operating expenses $1,092,154,099.
The net earnings, including miscel
laneous receipts, were over $588,000,
000. The roads have 39,729 engines,
27,144 passenger cars, 8,677 mail and
express cars, and 1,409,472 freight cars,
as compared with 21,889 engines, 14,
934 passenger cars, and 730,435 freight
cars in 1892, and yet the locomotive
works are behind on orders and car
works cannot turn out freight cars fast
enough to take care of business. The
total amount of stock, bonds, and un
funded debt is $12,326,491,526.

Controlling The Trusts.
Senator Hoar does not think that
there is any need of a constitutional
amendment to give congress power to
control the trusts as it has already
all the power necessary. Among the
powers already possessed he enumer
ates the following:
"Congress has the right to prohibit
all transactions of interstate or inter
national commerce by corporations.
"It has the right to impose on them
any conditions that may be thought
"It can compel them to keep ac
counts. "It can submit them to government
"It can prohibit the watering of
"Above all it can enact that unless
all national regulations be complied
with the exemption of personal liabil
ity for their stockholders shall not
"It can require every corporation,
great or small, to do the bidding of
congress at the peril of exposing its
members to individual liability for all
its debts and obligations and of being
prohibited from doing interstate busi
Besides that, the president can
prosecute the trust managers under
the criminal section of the Sherman
act, but he won't.
