was quite apparent that the money supply of the country was not sufficient to meet its commercial needs there sprang into existence trio farmsallianced political organization that hnifItritsprincipal object the advocacy ota plan by which warehouse receipts based upon grain actually harvested should be made the basis of currency issued by the government The feasibility or faults of such a plan are not pertinent to a discussion just at this time and the plan itself is only recalled in order that a comparison may ft e drawn The financiers and honest money people of the country by every method known to political warfare including argu ment statistics ridicule and other weapons less honorable brought the voters to a realization of the dangers inherent in such a proposition and the subtreasury scheme never passed the borders of dreamland Now come the financiers and honest money fellows with a little plan of their own It is fathered by the money trust and labeled the Fowler bill It will be enacted into law during the present session of congress It did not originate in the brain of a farmer of course but it has some of the old subtreasury scheme in it Instead of wheat corn or other tangible property being used as a basis for an issue of currency direct from the treasury however the Fowler bill provides that the stock and bonds of corporations may be security for national bank notes issued by the bunks themselves It proposes to establish a groat central l bank with brunch banks in eyery city and town in the United States which will convert every local banker into a salaried clerk it proposes to permit these banks to issue uotes based upon Securities other than government bonds That these stocks and bonds are of greater stability and actual Value than grain in a warehouse is exceedingly doubtful but it must be remembered that this proposition is not for tho relief of the agricultural community out for the preservation of tho national banks that its origin is not with the producers of the country but with the financiers whose dictum is law oven before congiess has perfunctorily order od that it bo placed on the statute books Tho stocks and bonds df every trust m the countryheavily watered us the secretary of the treasury declares them to be so heavIly that he fears the slightest agitation for a reform tariff will knock a hole in them and drain them and tproducesuch a tejq 03 the world hasntjver knowu these stocks and bonds to nearly their face value Will be considered collateral for our future money The wildcat banking schemes of older days palo

Joseph Smith of the Mormon church 4 defined the present position of the church with respect to polygamy also the ecclesiastical position of Apostle Reed Smoot whose candidacy for tho United States Senate has resultedtn an active campaign against him by the Ministerial Alliance t The church doesjnot desire to enter into controversy over this question said President Smith but itis anxious that its ovnveopleas well as the pen pie of the country should understand its position The Mormon Church does not sol emnize nor permit plural marriagesi The church does not perform or sanction or authorize marriagethat iscon trary to the laws of the land The assertion that prominent Mormons prac tice polygamy is evidently made to mis lead the public f JPolygamyl J under the law is the marrying of a husband or a wife is living and undiyorced There j is no such offense committed by sand tion of the Mormon Church But when the prohibition of poly gamy was proclaimed by the president of the Morman Church they weremany persons who had contracted jpinral mar riages and that relation has been continued in many instances because the men in that position determined not to abandon their families but to care for and provide for them and educate and cherish their children This is erroneously construed as practicing1 polygamy and creates the impression that polygamous marriages are still permitted in and by the church A Million Voices Could hardly express the thanks of Homer Hall of West Point la Listen why A severe cold had settled on his ughSeveral 1 tion but could not neap

newspapers of the world wore responsible for it though the efforts of Cot Pope must not be overlooked as a primary cause Col Pope is a confirmed believer in the efli cacy of newspaper advertising He has every reason to bo It has made a mill lionaire of him When he began the manufacture of bicycles he entered upon n most extensive advertising cam paign So liberal were his appropria r tions that the newspapers became his friends and the free advertising ho re cnjved probably exceeded in extent th or which he paid so liberally Consequently everybody became bicycle mad The highways aud byways became tilled with the machines New fact ries were called into existence and prices came tumbling down to a reasou able basis Then came the trust It was organized for the purpose of elfin i outing competition and cutting down advertising expenses It was effective in both and now the trust is in the hands of a receiver and most of us have resumed trio oldtime means or locomo tion Only another
