Dnrlicr ami Donnelly. '
The middle of the road populistc
held their National convention.
Wednesday and Thui'jdiy of las1
wcok in Cincinnnati Ohio and nom
inated Wharton Baker of Pennsyl
vania for president and Ignatius-
Donnelly of Minnesota.
The convention was composed
of 780 delegates. They adopted
the following platform :
The I'lat form.
The platform was then adopted
BB read by chairman Felton , with
the additional plank presented b )
Parker. The esolutions follows ;
"Tho people's party of the United
State ? , Resembled in national convention
vontion this tenth day ot May 1900 ,
affirming our unshaken belief in i 1
the cardinal tenets of the peopleV
party , as sot fourth in the Omaha
platform ; and pledging ourselves
anew to continued advocacy of
those grand principles of human
liberty , until right shall triumph
over might and love over greed , do
adopt and proclaim this declaration
of faith :
' FIBST Wo demand the initia
tive and referendum and the imperative
tivo mandate , such changes of existing
isting 0 fundamental and statute
law as will enable the people in
their capacity to propose and
compel the enactment of such laws
ns they desire , to reject , such as
they deem injurious to their inter
ests , and to recall unfaithful public
servants. "
' Second Wo demand the public
ownership and operation of these
means of oommunntion , transpora-
tion and products uhich the people
may elect , such ad railrords , tele
graph and telephone lines , coal
mines , ole ,
f *
"Third The land , including a'l '
natural sources of wealth , is a herit.
ngejof the people and should not
bt monopolized for speculative
purposes , and alien ownership of
land frhonld be prohibited. All
hud now held by railroads and
other corporation * ? in excess of
their a clual needs and all lands now
o.vntd by aliens shou'd ' bo reclaim
ed by the goven.mont and hold for
actual KGltlcrn only.
"Fourth A Hoicntih'j and abso
lute paper monny , baised upon the
entire wealth and population of
the nation , not redeemable in any
fipouifij commodity , but made in
full legal tender for nil debts and
receivable for nil taxes and public
dues , and tEKiird by the goveintnenl
onlj * , without the intervention of
bankH , and in Hiilliuient quantities
to meet the demands of commerce ,
is the bosl utirrency that can bo do *
vised ; but until such a financial
system is bccured , which wo"
press for adopiion , wo favor the
free and unlimited coinage of both
silver and gold , at the legal ratio of
10 to 1.
"FifthVo demand the levy
and collection of graduated ii >
< : om''B .nd inheritances and a coi-
situlioi al amcndmnnt to Hucuru the
name if necessary.
"Sixth Wo demand the election
of president , vice president , federal
judges and United States senators
by direct vote of the people.
"Seventh We are appoaed to
trustaand declare the contention bo.
tween * the old parties on the mono
poly question is a bliani battle | and '
that no solution of this mighty pro
blem is possible without the adop
tion of the ptinciplo of public
ownership of public utilities.
The settlement of the -'trust , '
question is not a political one , but
it call for the concerted action
ind the best judgement of all legis
lators. Whatever the "trust" tends
to impair the rights and privileges
of citizens , it aims neither at Re
publican ? , Democrats nor Populiste ,
nut at all alike. Therefor * , the ro
proHoiUativcs of all the puople
should join hands for tbo protec
tion of all.
Tl o export tnido balance in
favor of the United States during
the first three years of President
iMoKinloy's Administration amount
ed to § 1,483,000,000. Moio than
one-half of that Bum represents
what was paid for labor in manufac
turing these exports , for which the
rest of the world paid. In other
words the republican policy has
obliged the world , in tie last three
years , to pay at lt < a&t § 740,000,000
to American labor , which wouH
employ 740,000 men for ono year
at a salary of §
1,000 per year.
This is ono reason why work is
plenty , wages good , and the home
consumption of American prodt ott
1.3H largely increased.
The now pension
bill that was
agreed upon by the G , A. R. at its
last cncimpmont , and which passed
the Senate on January 8 , is now
being disousso'i by the houfla of
Representatives , It proves that all
persons who nerved
ninety days or
more in the militaiy or naval
Borfteo of the United States during
the oivil war , who wore homrably
discharged , and who are now or who
may hereafter bo suffering from
any mental or nphytncal ( liability
or disabilities of a permanent chare-
tor , not the riiHtill of their own
vicious hiibilH. which incapacitates
them from the manual labor HO as
to earn support , thall upon making
proof of the f.iyt. bo placed i pen
the list of invalid pensioners of
the United Statcp , aud entitled to
receive a pension not exceeding
per month and not loss than & 0 per
month , protortioiifcd to the degree
of inability to earn a support.
The Treasury Department's latent
circulation statement shows the
total anount of money in circula
tion in the United States to have
been $2,000,525,408. A year ago
on March 1 , 1809 , it was only § ! , _
0-18,807.892 , having inooased more
than § 120,00',000 within a year.
When Mr. Bryan was nominated
in 1890 , it was $1,528,029,403 , and

The American Protective Tariff I
League's hheep census shows a gain
of 39.84 per cent in the number of
sheep in Oregon , einoo the free-
tradeinwool time of 1890 , and an
increase of 131 per cent in the
average value of each sheep ir that
This is going to bo the banner
year in our export trado. During
ninu inon < liB of the current h't'cal
period , up to March 31 , our export
exceeded $ Sl,054,800)OOC , an in-
urensu of more than 6100,000,000 .
over the corresponding period in' '
the | revious (1-oal ( year , and § 430 , '
000,000 moie than in 1895 undir
the Willson tariff. which was
claimed to bo especially conducive
to foreign trade.
The value of colonial possesss-
ioiiB to commerce if ? well indicated
by some ligiirc-H of the Hritinh
Board of Trade. In Jon years
Eng'aud's ' trade with her ooloii'ct *
was 389,000,000 greater than the
United States , . 924,000,000 greater
than with Germany , and . 1,100 -
000,000 greater than with France.
The balance of trade ia favor of
the United States during ; the present
sent Admimstiation has reached
tbo incredible man of $1,483,000-
000 , an amount that passes the
power of comprehension. The bal
ance of trade in favor of the United
States , during all the Administra
tions that preceded that of MoKin-
loy , from Washington to Cleveland
'inclusive , was $383,000,000. To
put the matter in another way , the
throe years of the MeKiuley Ad
ministration have seen a trade bal
ance $1,100,000,000 greater than
was accumulated during the cen
tury preceding his inauguration.
The advance agent of prosperity
has made good his promises , has
done ton times more than ho pro *
miaed , and the people who know a
good thiui when they see it will be
slow to change auoh a certainty for
doubtful promises.
The pnnngu of tlio Nicaragua
canal bill , in the llonso of Repre
sentatives , by thf < overwhelming
vote ol 225 to 3S ; is regarded as a
complete victory for the policy of
expansion. Its importance to
American commerce and its value
to an American navy ronclor its
construction an absolute necessity
to instiro our supremacy as a world
The or capita circulation of the
country was $20.58 on May 1st. It
was only $21.10 when Bryan was
nominated in 1890 The failure of
free silver haa certainly not chocked
the circulation.

The writer heard many
wordu for Hon. F. Mi Ourrio while
at Lincoln last week. Ho was of
ten mentioned as good srnatoiial
timber and wo believe that if the re
publicans get the . legislature the
woslorh part of the state will be
readily conceded ono nenator. If
so Senator Gurrio would surely bo
the man.
In 1895 wo exported 27,001,137
bushels of corn. That "was a Do"
mooiatio year. In 1899 we o'xport-
ed 174,099,094 bushels. That wasg
a republican year.
Chicago reports that nine trunk
line railroads will contract , thip

work for the wage-earner.
Porto Rioo has been importing
$2,000,000 worth of cotton good
