It woold be frlvoloat for me to come forward at this Juncture with any
ordinary sropoeltloa. The Instrument by whotie agency I propose to re
verse the condition of servitude to which the system hss reduced the
American people Is an extraordinary Instrument Bnt before Its potency
can be grasped there mutt be a thorough understanding- of the facts sod
manner of the situation at hand. Each year the American people produce
billions ot dollars over and above what labor and capital are used up In .
the process of production. These billions should be the property of the
people who produce them, but the working of a financial trick each year
puts the tremendous profit all In the hands of a few men, the Rockefellers,
the Harrlmans, the Morgans System. In the hands of these few men these
diverted billions become the greatest power In all the land, a power so
absolute that It controls the ballot box, creates presidents, harnesses the
senate and congress, directs legislation, manipulates courts, dictates to
labor, regulates the prices of necessities and luxuries and makes the
American people as so mtny dumb beasts of burden. The reason why it
Is possible for the few to take from the mtny their savings snd use
them for s htrness that they may drive the people to earn more, Just as
the slaver drives his human property, is because there hss come Jnto ex
istence during the past 60 years a power greater than that of the people,
the power of manipulated dollars. ' This power today is in the hands of
the few men the system who wield it remorselessly against the people.
My purpose is to put this power into the bands of the people to use un
sparingly for the destruction of the system. The instrument through
which this will be brought about is no mysterious, complicated mechanism,
but a simple device, easy to understand, ready to wield and certain In
result, a device which will do for the people exactly what the system's
machinery has performed for the benefit of the few, now the 100-time
millionaires, who a brief period ago, before they became possessed of their
wonder-power, were Just ordinary every-day Americans. Fifty years ago
there were but few American stocks and bonds in existence. They rep
resented the ownership of a few railroads and industries which really be
longed to the people. The annual earnings of these railroads snd in
dustries, over and above the legitimate expenses of conducting them, went
to the people. At that time there were no 100 and 500-tlme millionaires,
no few men who ran the whole country, no trusts, no system. The prices
of necessities and luxuries were made and controlled by the legitimate
demand and supply. There were but few banks and trust companies, and
those institutions loaned the people's deposited savings to the people at
rates of interest which were regulated to earn only the expenses of
legitimately conducting said banks and trust companies plus a fair divi
dend on the capital actually employed In their banking business The
New York and other stock exchanges were but small affairs, conducted v
for the purpose of enabling the owners of stocks and bonds of legitimate
corporations to sell their holdings to those who might wish to Invest
In them. Out of this necessary and legitimate condition of affairs was
hatched the monster fraud that today dominates the American people,
thwarts their will and directs their affairs. A few financiers, the founders
of the system, contrived a trick device, to wit: First They created gi
gantic new trusts to control the railroads, banks, trust companies and
industries of the country. Second They bought privately conducted en
terprises, institutions and industries from their owners, the people, at one
price, consolidated them in the trust and issued to themselves in stocks
snd bonds of the new trust's new stocks snd bonds representing 1,000
times the purchase price. Third This they did to such an extent that
. today there .are $70,000,000.000 seventy thousand millions of such
stocks and bpnds. Fourth They established all over the country thou
sands of banjjes and trust companies, into which the people (because they
had no other facilities for doing business) were compelled to deposit their
savings, for the use ot which they have been paid annually 2 to 5 per
cent Interest'" Fifth The government was tricked into depositing the
government's money in their banks and trust companies at a nominal rate
., of interest, often without Interest return at all. Sixth With these vast
amounts of money all the money of the country In their control, the
system started Its trick machinery of making and controlling the prices
: of the $70,000,900,000 of stocks and bonds on the stock exchanges.
Seventh Them they proceeded to manipulate the prices of stocks and
bonds and through false reports circulated in the press, directly and in
directly controlled by the system, and through daily artificial stock ex
change activities and false sales and purchases, led the people to believe
that the inflated prices thus made were legitimate and Induced the people
to invest their savings at this preposterous valuation. After luring the
people in they reversed -the process. Press stories of depression replaced
those of prosperity. Then system-controlled banks and trust companies
called in the money that had been loaned to the people to buy these
stocks, and a panic was on, during the progress ot which the people were
frightened into throwing over their stocks and bonds at slaughter prices,
which the system repurcased at billions of dollars less than the victims
had been induced to pay tor them. By thlB trick these few me"n, the
system, have been able at will to make for themselves profits of $5,000,
000,000 to $10,000,000,000 In each ot the market swings that they have
engineered. Think of ft $5,000,000,000 to $10,000,000,000 ot two and
one-half to five times the worth of the entire annual wheat, corn and

CATTLE Receipts of cattle this morn
ing numbered lau cars, as against 212 cars
one week ago, 212 cars two weeks ago and
27 cars three weeks ago. In fact. It was a
light run as compared with previous
weeks. The arrivals consisted very largely
of rangers, there not being enough corn
feds In sight to make a real test of the
Considering the total receipts, the offer
ings were somewhat more liberal than on
a good many days of late. The demand
for that kind of cattle was quite brisk,
especially for tbe good fleshy grades,
which went Into the country quite freely
last week. Speculators were the chief
buyers and tne desirable kinds changed
bands In very good season. The pricee
paid were anywhere from steady to
utile stronger than last week.
Btef steers were rather alow to open, but
still there was a fair demand, and when
the trade waa once under way there was
a good movement, so that the moat of the
receipts changed hands In fair season. The
prices paid were steady, at least, with last
week. As high aa Jt 10 was paid for very
good Montana rangers. Com-feds sold as
high as ioDO.
cows and heifers moved off Quits readily
when the market waa once warmed up and
the prices paid were generally strong to
loc higher than last week. The desirable
cows sold in very good season. C turners
were also In fair dur.iand and they, too, sold

HOa Receipts of hogs as usual on Mon
day were very small, only thirty-four cars
being reported In There was a good, brisk
demand, and. as a result of free buying
the offerings were all taken In very good
sesson. The prices paid were generally 10c
hlftner than Saturday, the bulk of the hogs
swung at K.40. aa against to.30 on Naturday.
The quality of the offerings was nons loo
good, there being no very choice hogs to
put a stop on the market. The best bog
h'.re were Usit butcherweighls. which sold
as hlsrh as 16.4a.
The week starts out with the market only
about TVac higher than It was one week ago.
SHiitH Receips of sheep mis morning
were very liberal, numbering forty-two cars,
as against forty-four cars on Monday of
last week, that having bn the largest run
at this point since the middle of May. The
arrivals consisted largely ot killers, al
tnougn tnere was quite a little sprinkling
Tne demand for feeding sheep and Iambi
was quite brisk this morning, there being
really more buyers than there were sheep
of that kind. The offerings for the most
part changed hands In good season at prices

than last week.

cotton crop of tho country, the Naticmrs rmndett boast.- rfsfAinotint h
system hss been able to make has been limited only Ty the amount ot
surplus the people hsve accumulated during their periods of prosperity
between each going and coming panic The supremacy of the system
over the president, government and all the Institutions of the country
was burned into the minds ot al! last October, when, in spits of President
Roosevelt's almost superhuman efforts to bring the dollar lords within
the grip of the law, the system deliberatel precipitated the most dis
astrous panic In the history ot all the world. Over 100 basks snd trust
companies were wrecked, over 165 men snd women committed suicide
and over 100 were turned into convicts. Thousands were thrown out of
employment, cash payments by banks, trust companies snd corporations
to labor and depositors were suspended snd the produce ot farms wss
allowed to rot because no money could be had to move It During this
destruction the system, with the cash that it bad so cunningly withheld
from the people, laid up for themselves, st slaughter prices, billions of
dollars' worth of stocks, bands and property which the panlo-crasted
people were compelled to throw over to meet loans they had been led to
believe would take care of themselves and to protect their business, farms
snd homes. During this panic, the system dropped prices over $10000
000,000. For instance, $100,000,000 Union Pacific, from 196 to 100
$180,000,000 St Paul. 176 to 90; $155,000,000 Amalgamated. H0 to 40,
and so on through the list ot hundreds of railroads snd Industrial stocks.
TheBe enormous losses were made by the people. Tho sole gainer was
the system. The property and securities which were gobbled up daring the
panic by the Rockefellers, Morgans, Harrlmans the system already
show the system by the rise in stocks and bonds which has occurred
since the October panic, a profit of $2,000,000,000. Is U not time for
the masBcs the American people to cease playing the role of asses to
the system yes, asses. They will tell you. these otherwise Intelligent
people, that the price of stocks and bonds Is no affair ot thelrs, because
they never buy or sell sny. Let me boll this tremendous question to so
ABC point A certain western bank had a large amount ot the de
posited savings of Western farmers. This bsnk ksnd Its deposits to
a New York bank. This New York bank loaned them out to system
victims, taking ss collateral Union Pacific R. R. stock at 160, Reading
R. R. stock st 150. Steel Trust stock at 50 and Tennessee Coal and Iron
stock st 160. In the panic the New York bank could not sell Us collateral
and It busted, and the system bought from it Union Pacific at 100, Read
ing at 70, Steel Trust at 20 and Tennessee Coal and Iron at 80, and the
Western bank lost a vast sum of the farmers money, which the farmers
will not hear anything about until the next panic, when, because ot these
secret losses and others of a like nature, the Western bank busts. Now:
my Intelligent Western friends, you who never buy or sell stocks and
bonds, and. therefore, are not interested in the doings ot Wall street,
who do you guess got the money you lost? Let us see. The Union Pa
cific R. R. stock which the system bought at 100 they sell todsy at 167;
the Reading they bought at 70 they can sell today at 127; the Tennessee
Coal and Iron they bought at 80 they can sell at 140; the steel they
bought st 20 is very actlvs today at 47 and. to quote from a leading
New York dally. "The trustees for the widows snd orphans ot different
estates sll over the country sre flocking to Wall street with the pro
ceeds ot their July dividends and coupons and putting them into steel
at 45 and it looks like a good investment, too, although it would have
perhaps been wiser If these trustees had bought at 20." The widows
snd orphans did not buy at 20. No, they sold st 20 to Morgan and bis
associates which they had bought from Morgan and his associates at BO,
and they are again buying from Morgan and his associates st 47 what
they sold to Morgan and his associates at 80. And in the next panic they
will sgaln sell at 20 and Morgan and his associates will again buy and
be hailed by the people ss the panic stopper, the people's ssvior. And
there you are. Four years ago. In "Frentied Finance," I warned the
American people of what was coming and though they read, understood
and were on their guard, down they went before this financial blast like
spears of wheat before the reaping machine. There is no power on earth
to prevent these few men, the system, from working this trick in tho
future, as they have In the past, the people remaining as powerless to
help themselves as they are today, for when any few men in America
can possess themselves at will of the billions of the people's savings,
nothing is beyond their power, snd all the people can do is what they are
doing now, frantically wringing their hands during panic times and
thanking the lord when panic times are over it was no worse, while the
system builds up another period ot prosperity preparatory to another
shearing. . I repeat no power on Earth can prevent these men, but the
power of the people to take the system game into their own hands to be
worked by them upon the system. The motive power today In America
in all the affairs of the people is the capacity of a few men to raise and
lower the price of the $70,000,000,000 ot stocks and bondB, for through
their raise and fall the price of necessities and luxuries snd labor and
Interest are controlled, thereby cresting "Prosperity" and "Hard Times."
If the ssme can control the prices of $70,000,000,000 ot stocks and
bonds the people will for all time be robbed of their savings. If the
people can control the price themselves, they will not only be able to get
back the billons of which they have been plundered and turn the 100 and
6 00-timet millionaires, the Rockefellers, Harrlmans and Morgans, into
ordinary Americans. With the instrument of which I have at last gained
possession, after twenty years of active plotting, scheming and maneu
vering, to place In the hands of the people the power to control the price
ot the $70,000,000,000 of stocks and bonds that they may bankrupt and
destroy the system and come into their own.
