GREAT COMMON PEOPLE EXTRACTS From a Speech Delivered by Grov Altgeld in Cincin riati Oct 1st f Andrew Carnegie in an article in the North American Review re cently advised the people of America to support Wiliam McKinley He says that he believes that Mr Bryan would he an unsafe man What has caused this change o heart on the part of Mr Carnegie We find on examination that there are but two great armorplate fact ories in the country and1rlr Carnegie owns one of them Mr Hanna had a bill passed in Congress Iafew months ago which put 8 000000 of unjust profits tnto the pockets of the Armor Plate Trust 11rlCarnegie He went on to say that Mr Car negie received a vast income from his trust possessions and that in his article he says that Mr Bryan is a dangerous man because he favors a tax on incomes He referred to the testimony giv en in Washington last winter by Mr Havemeer of the Sugar Trust in which Mr Havemeyer said that the tariff is the parent of all trusts Thd tariff said the speaker was never put up higher and higher for t the benefit of the laboring man but For the benefit of the favored few There is no tariff on pauper labor The miners of America know this The articles which they must buy are increased in price by reason of the tariff but the labor which they sell is open to the competition of the pauper labor of- Europe i ALWAYS AGAINST TRUSTS Sf This county he said has always been opposed to trusts There are laws on the nooks against trusts now but they have not been en forced Why Because the trusts control the Adminstration at Wash ington There is an Attorney General in Washington now who has been trying for a long while to find out hownot to do it The trusts take a hand in poll tics They look after the selection of United States Senators they take a hand in the election ofmembers of the lower House They watch the appointment of Judges And they put up the campaign funds in Presidential elections If the money of the trusts should succeed in carrying this election do yo think that the trusts will be destroy ed after their candidates have bee inducted into office Our candidate has been vilified Onr candidate has been misrepre sented We have not complained of that But let me remind yo miy friends of one thing No man even the bitterest has ever had th hardihood to say that trusts coul control William J Bryan This remark started a storm applause that could not be stoppe- iorseveral minutes It was a remarkable demonstration I we get Bryan at Washing ton no trust representative change our plaits duty into a 15 perl cent tariff f Mr Hanna made a speech the other day in which he said that all peoplewere prosperous He said Vthis i1spite of the fact that thousands ofcoal miners were starving and pleading for bread in spite tbetaot that iron workers in Penn sylyanhi were trying to get the trusts that controlled them to allow V tbehrut i rlc iswollen profits to i Ji tj caliWherever you will cast ybuY eve you will find that the legisla Uion in the past few years has been fin favor of the few and not in favor of the laboring people expansionIThere is no such question as ex pansion before this country today Expansion is growth We ex panded when we got the Western States We expanded when we got Florida When we got Alask i But it was undeerstood then that befcome an coun tbeIIn a Ital1ts 0 t IS annexed tern iorr were to become citizens of this country I am In favor of expansion and I believe that the time will come when Canada will wrap for admission to this Union when the WestIndia Islands will rap for admission I hcpe some Ameriinorth pole to the Isthmus of Pana marBut the people who inhabit it must be free They must come of their own accord and must be our brothersnot our subjects II But there has been nothing of that sort in the Philippine quest ion In the treaty of Paris it way stipulated that the citizens of the Philippines should not become citi zens of this country Are they not as much entitled to become free and independent people as we are CAN NEVER BE FREE We have told the people of these islands that they can never be free that our flag can never be haveIsame flag of Spain stood forbrute force Brute force has been the principle that has guided the flags of tyrants t r O tffhereIsland of Porto Rico an island of 1000000 inhabitants In 1898 the industrious people ofthis island cheered our flag and welcom ed our soldiers with flowers and smiles Gen Miles issued a proc lamation in which he promised that the people of that happy island should become citizens of this country He told them that they should be brothers ofoursthat they should enjoy the same bless ings and advantages that we enjoy IIHe told him that we had come to make them our friends that they were to become American theyIrepresentation in the thauin substance The people of Porto thne Spanish Congress They have no such representation now We too them away from Spain and then rightdthemumeager as rights were Last theCondgress our plain duty t Porto Rico was to allow free trade Coiigressmad n r removal of all tariff duties between here and Porto Rico Then th trusts heard about it They fours that it might interfere with some of their profits A trust waanat- named Oxnard weut down to Wash ington from Wall street and f lce Mr Payne to suppress his bill He forced the preparation of an other bill ofan exactly opposite character A d1ten JLto the eter n ofal shame of thebAniaricau people he forced the President of the United States to signthe hew bill after he had forced Congress to assJib vTbe Presid ntwbohad it5tp + i4ir 2 said that it was our plain duty to remove the tariff duties and allow poor little Porto Rico some of the advantages of freedoman advant age which Spain had allowed her changed his entire attitude in that regaid and signed a bill to require a 15 per cent duty The bill that was passed embod ies every principle that King George fought for over ico years ago If this Porto Rican bill is right then our fathers were wrong If this bill is light we were wrong 130 years ago If this bill is right let us pull down the monuments that we have built to the heroes o the Revolutionary War and erect altars on which to burn incense to the memory of King George Search history and you will neve find a parallel case One trust magnate greater than the President of the United States One trust magnate greater than the sentiment of 80000000 people Why should we celebrate July 4 when the prin ciples that are being commemorated by that celebration are being scoffed at and disregarded by those at the head of this nation Good Roads A Few Plain Facts Concern thebBond Issue r l There seems to besome tew people who are fighting the road question straight out for what rea son I do not J know I desire to answer some few frivilous excuses and reasons they put up why they oppose the road question First they say it is fortlie bene fit of Mt Vernon Let us see if Mt Vernon is the only place to be benefitted The plan as proposed is to start a pike at the Laurel county line audrun straight through to they Lincoln county Is Mt Vernon they only place to be benefitted by that pike Then where next Start in the Southern part of the county and run on through to the Madison county lire Who is to bebenefit ted by that one The thoughtof even attempting run these pikes out only six or seven miles from Mt Vernon has never been enter tained for a single moment by 3113 citizen of Mt Vernon who isan advocate of the bond issue Who is to have charge andcay how this money shall be expended That will be left to the Com missioners appointed from differ ent sections of the countyevery part being represented tWhere will this money be spent for labor Some say that these contractors gokto bring in cheap homse our county 1 it reasonable to suppose that atn counteto get a crew men to work for hoiot tti same amount oj work for the same pay They ia some two or three Mt Vern n men want to get that money a uti Anothee wsdyour C mmissiner be for It t 111 huguemoney is spent and kov Ondman says the debt in twenty fit years will amount to 63000 inter est and1all Yes that is true al1 ilhinltamount to a million dollars but want to ask the gentleman wlt JI he is going to do with tlia 23QI that will be cpllectedrea Tdndrea dollarro call i WliaC t 0i I tl will it amount to in 25 years f 57500 bethCalculate it for yourself applied on the debt and see what will be the result see if it will amount to 63000 I will still go farther than that and say that after the 2300 has bee applied on the debt each yeafj that at assurplus instead of an indebted ness and a mathematical calculation will prove it so Oh yes says some fellow it will run on for a year or so and then there will he placed on us a poll tax of 500 to usfsee if that is so Uuder the present Constitution a poll ot not more than 150 can be levied under any consideration and under the call for this election a poll tax of any kind cannot be levied to pay for the pikes so those who pay nothing but a jpoll tax can rest as sured that so far as they are con cerned they will never have to pay a cent towards paying off the bonds Those who kick against the pikes never think about the 4 or 5 which they pay out every year for some one to put their time in on the roads and those who work their own tine never think about that time and money which they loose which would more than over balance the amount of taxes which they would have pay This ic a serious matter andl when we cote against it we vote against the interest of our county and our posterity and should it be lost this time it will not be dead for all that is necessary is for he people to thoroughly understand it and then it will go through t a whoop But donPJet us haveL u wait f9r another year but Kt vote it in nowand before another year 1011around have pikes leading in different di rections throughout our f Youis tr C0111tyJ r t i 1A E1Y 4

upon facts as plain as truth itself whilst they join in a iyof proseutionCourier Journal Hon Frank Monnett former Attorney General of Ohio last week in a speech delivered at Columbus Ohio declared his in tendon to support Bryan because of the trust issue As a republican attorney general of that state he instituted twenty four suits against combinations monopoly and trusts but that the courts were badgered and obstructed by republican lead ers United States Senators and political bosses and a subsidized press In conclusion Mr Monnett said I believe that William McKinley and John W Griggs his Attorney Gen ral and his executive officers have willfully pnrposely andknow ingly paralyzed the executive arm of this Government far the last four years and prevented the enforcement of the common Jaw and the statute law both criminally and civilly against these lawviolators And the hour has now come and the only time we will have for the next four years as voters to legally and constitutionally smite them for this hypocrisy to resent this viola tion of official duty and we should vote against every elector that is pledged on the Republican ticket to perpetuate this great wrong in our republic HIS VOTE PLEDGED TO BRYAN William J Bryan may not ac complish all that we expect or all that we hope for in this behalf but I believe him to be thoroughly honest sincere and a determined man and while I do not agree with him in all that he advocates yet I am forced to take one side or the other on this gieat question which lor the mass is the para mount issue and inthen fut of patriotism and for the sake of our republic and to preventthe threat ened danger that Senator John Sherman and the other Nestors in the councils of our Government have so graphically prophesiedand which I firmly believe will come to pass if not checked I propose to cast my vote for that fearless up right champion of the people William J Bryan JTJ1E most enthuseastic reception ever given a candidate for any of flee in the gift of the people was given that matchless leader of the common people William Jennings Bryan in New York City Tuesday Not half the people were able to get in hearing distance This wonderful demonstration of the people of the East is suffecient ev idence that Hannaism will not rule the United States for the next four years POSSUM HOLLER I have been a sojourner at

Wildie men who pay more tax in the advance of sugar coffee and coal oil without a grunt than they will have to pas a pike tax are perfectly horified at the idea of the pike tax tTos my friends ifwe can bear to be robbed so tamely why not pay this little pittance that will be suck an enormous benefit to ourselves and even down to the 3rd 4th generations If we had good roads in Rockcastle you would not see our most wealthy citizens continually seeKing homes in other parts but they would stay with us and with their money help to develop our resources and build up our county but under existing circumstances when men accumu late a few thousand dollars they emigrate and bad roads is the principal cause Capital will never seek investment in our county un til this evil is removed then immi gration will flow in and with it plenty of money and Rockcastle will soon be what it should have been long agoone ofthe wealthiest mountain counties in KentucyI Now to confirm some of the facts set forth Ill call your attention to this little but true incident A few years since some home seekers came from Ohio landed at Mt Vernon and started to explore the C A Redd farm but by the time they had gone one half mile from the depot they became so disgusted with the road that they went no further but took the next train for home As a matter of course these men carried this fact back to Ohio andwhere ever told the homeseeker went elsewhere Give us good roads and all else will naturally fol low Fellow citizens both demo crat and republican dont be af fraid of the tax we will have to pay it will make life easier and deathless dreadful Let no merceuary motives come between you and your duty The law will pass in the near future if it does not no wand then those who oppose it now win regret i Come out boldly for what all men will say we need and have notgood roads What all agree that we cannot have un the present system That you may know that I prac tice what I preach I will suppli ment my tax with 50 to be doub led if nccessaryand as you may not all know Buck Varnon I am Very truly J N BROWN V Level Green Ky e YOUTSEY CASE The case ofY uts y was resumed Tuesday At 227 oclock Mr

Cantrill ruled that Mr Goe bels testimony was competent and the attorneys for the defense took exceptions The jury was returned and Mr Goebel was put back on the stand Youtsey then began to groan and

morning Dick Combs told him he was ready to kill GoeT5el Continuing Youtsey said I went to Caleb Powers and asked him for the key to the Secretary of States office Caleb told me tp get the key from John Powers and I did I then went to Taylor and told that Combs would kill Goebel Taylob said he did not know we to do that Taylor said if it was necessary to kill Goebel all igut but said it was too important to be done by a negro I went back to see Taylor on Tuesday morning and told him that Jim Howard was there Wehgo ahead thenI saia Taylor At this juncture Youtsey sprang out of bed and became

Taylor S33crHe said Gov Taylor walked up and down the floor and said Youtsey what do you think If Goebel is killed do you think I ould hold my office and discuss ed that matter talking to me back and

to you to decide now finally whether it is to be done or not and after some more hesitating Youtsey said Taylor said finally Well tell them to go ahead If it is necessary I can send the man to the

asked by Col Nelson about a conference which he and Col Camp bell had with Messrs Crawfordand NelsonMn Col Crawfords office in Newport Mr Goebel narrated what was said betweed him and the attorneys

MOUNT VERNON SIGNAL r FRIDAY OCT 19 1900 18001900 Some Historical Parallels Be tween Jefferson and BryanT First hear now Mr Henry Adams summing up of the tirades against Jefferson by the Federalists of New England and New York in 1800 Every dissolute intriguer looseliver forger falsecoiner and prisonbird every hairbrained loudtadng dem agogue every speculator scoffer and atheist was a follower of Jefferson and Jefferson was himself the incarna tion of their theories WHAT ROOSEVELT SAYS OF THE FOLLOWERS OF JEFFERSON Study the Kansas City platform and you cannot help realizing that their policy is the policy of infamy that their triumph would mean misery so widespread that it is almost un thinkable and a disgrace so lasting that more than a generation would have to pass before it could be wiped outThey stand for lawlessness and dls rdor for dishonesty and dishonor for license and disaster at home and cow ardly shrinking from duty abroad WHAT HISTORIANS SAY OF JEFFER- 60NSADl1INISTRATION And what followed all this hysteria spectreswas the sequel An administration as Schouler justly describes it peace ful progressive and popular beyond all precedent especially strong and successful just where the direst disas ter had been foreboded in the management of the finances of the coun try The policy of this remarkable Administration writes this admirer of Jefferson was at once and steadily successful in winning the people and the prestige of enthusiasm became irresistible when conjoined with the prestige of success An executive neither the instrument of others nor a betrayer of trusts we may regard Jefferson as the genuine personator of that to which Frances First Consul presented contemporaneously the counterfeita leader of the common people in the direction of their best desiresThis verdict is not simply that of Jeffersons admirers The historians are harmonious Mr Morse in his volume on Jefferson in the American State sriea seriesand neither the series as a whole nor Mr Morses vol aC1cusedson its forteuses terms almost iden tical Mr Schouler in the passage quoted is writing of a time midway in Jeffersons second administration just before the troubles with England Mr Morse is writing of the close of his first administration when the campaign for his reelection ap proached Everything he says re dounded to his good fame and popular ity The nation felt comfortable and good natured amid the broad visi ble facts of the passing time Were not expenses curtailed and taxes reduced and debts being rapidly di minished Had the country ibeen for many years past so free from irritation and anxiety growing out of politicalikindliness nation as it did today Four years of prosperity and tranquility left little iroom for discontent with the government Amid such influences political opposition pined and almost died The verdict of history on the adminis tration of the latter day Jefferson William Jennings Bryan who has store bitterly abused than even his great prototype will closely follow out the parallel TO SUPPLANT WHITES American Workmen Will Be Put in Competition with Chinamen by Conquest of the Philippines PLAN ALREADY OPERATING Never in the history of this gov ernment has the labor of this coun try been so menaced by the threatened influx of the Mongolian and Malay cheap labor of the far east as seems probable under the McKinley policy of imperialism should that dangerous policy be ratified by the American peo ple Without the labor vote that policy cannot be approved It behooves the laboring people therefore to look out for breakers ahead What does the conquest of the Philippine islands mean It means that they shall be come American territory What rights does that proposition carry with it to the people of the Philippines The McKinley policy to make the Philip pine islands American territory by con quest and subject to American juris diction carries with it the right of the people of those islands to free lo comotion to travel whither they will from one part of American territory to another without let or hindrance What has happened in the Hawaiian islands under the McKinley adminis tration since those islands have been annexed to the United States will take place in this country Fourteen to twenty thousand Japanese coolie la borers have been imported into the Hawaiian islands by the rich sugar planters under contract since the annexation of those islands and this too in violation of the contract labor law Why did not McKinley as the chief executive of this nation whose duty it was to enforce the law pre vent this influx of Japanese coolie la bor Simply because he is bound thesyndicatescountryWhat have we in store for the Philippine islands should the Mc Kinley war of conquest be endorsed The influx of Chinese coolie labor into those islands under the sanction of the McKinley administration General Wesley Merritt and General Charles A Whittier U S V and other land and naval officers went to Paris from Manila to testify before the Paris peace commissioners as to the Philippine people their wants needs capabilities and government General Whittier saidThen the question of the admission of Chinese with the strong argument on both sides The merchants of Ma nila are unanimous in their representations of the necessity for more Cooley labor They and many others re quire it in Manila and think that it will be necessary in railroad building and in the development of the country saying There is no question of competing with American labor here there being no such in the country nor can there be the climate prohib iting that Oheap labor and plenty of it is the life blood of the Philippines There is room for three millions of Chinese comfortably while 90000 is the present estimate The Omaha Bee Republican said editorially Oct 14 1898 if we absorb the Philippines with their millions of cheap laborers and proceed to the development of those islands indus trially and commercially by the utili zation of this cheap labor NOTHING CAN BE MORE CERTAIN THAN THAT IN TIME OUR HOME LABOR WILL SUFFER FROM THE COM PETITION WE SHALL NOT BE ABLE TO PERPETUALLY SAFE GUARD IT BY THE SYSTEM OF PROTECTION NOW IN OPERATION Territorial expansion as now proposed is a very serious mat ter for American labor and the op position of that labor to expansion should have more vigorous expression than has been given nThis was when the Omaha Bee was opposing the conquest of the pines and endeavoring to Phlllpicourse of the administration LINCOLN VS HIS PARTY InStateArnoldtheDeelaratlonagainst us denyItsconsent of the governed Birdscyc View of William McKinley His Devious Political and Official Trail Is an Anomaly in American Politics Always Wrong in the End The Republican party has accepted the European idea and planted Itself upon ground taken by George III and by every ruler who distrusts the capacity of the people for selfgovernment or denies them a voice in their own affairs William J Bryans Letter of Acceptance This is what President William McKinley has done says Jonathan B Taylor He has exercised the autocratic and unconstitutional power of denying the right of representation and suffrage of trial by jury of writ of habeas corpus of the right to bear arms of all rights guaranteed by the constitution to the Inhabitants of newly recognized islands He has recognized slavery and polygamy In Suln x He has made war upon the nonslave holding nonpolygamous Inhabitants ot Luzon He has consented to the taxation without representation of the inhabitants of Porto Rico He has withheld Independence from the inhabitants of Cuba This Is Imperialism In his message President McKinley saidForcible annexation is criminal ag gression He then proceeded to forcibly an nex the Philippine archipelago with its 8000000 unwilling people In 1899 President McKinley said It is our plain duty to give free trade to the people of Porto Rico He immediately proceeded to im portune and coerce a Republican con gress into passing a tariff bill against Porto Rico in accordance with the de mand of the sugar trust He gave pledges to Spain and Cuba that Cuba should be free and inde pendentHe created a military govern ment in Cuba which has thwarttS every step toward island autonomy and which reeks with theft and corrup tion of every kind Record in the Philippines President McKinley paid Spain 20 000000 for something which Spain did not possess and had not power to deliver The president has since that time spent of the American peoples money 200000000 trying to obtain that for which he had paid 20000 000 In this attempt he has only succeeded in filling graves hospitals insane asylums and fat insular jobs The end is not yet He has appointed more commissions to carry out his unconstitutional pol icy than all other presidents have legally created He is paying these commissions in violation of the con stitution See article 1 section 9 clause These commissions have never done anything beyond administering coats of whitewash to the autocracy at Washington McKinley AIJpOInteesI President McKinley is responsible for General

MONARCHY McKinley Organ in Iowa Voices the Real Sentiments of the Republican Party CONSTITUTION IS OBSOLETE The following article Is from the Des Moines In Globe a Republican farmers paper It voices in plain lan guage the spirit of McKinley Repub licanism What the Globe frankly speaks the imperialist secretly thinks It is brutally plain and for this rea son Republican organs have affected to discredit its sentiments but it speaks out of the fullness of a heart saturated with Hamiltonianism which is the inspiration of President McKin ley and tnere is in it that touch of sincerity that gives it weight as an ut terance a little rash perhaps and pos sibly a little premature but significant of rile trend of modern Republicanism The article deserves the very widest publicity as showing the direction of the McKinley drift For a long time thinking people who have large commercial interests have felt unsafe with our present form of government from the fact that we are controlled by the little cheap John politicians anu wardheelers NOv IS A GOOD TIME TO DO AWAY WITH OUR OBSOLETE CCNSTITU TION and adopt a form of government that will be logical with expansion ideas and will give AMPLE PROTECTION TO CAPITAL- A CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHY is probably the most desiraole plan that we could now adopt Everything is ripe for the change We take it that the great farming interests of our land will readily adapt themselves to the change The rarrner is a great lover of law and order and ANTI MONARCHY IS LARGELY THE EA PRESSION OF FRENCH REVOLU TIONARY IDEAS SuuGESTED BY HOTHEADED THEORISTS We believe that history and exper ience have proven beyond cavil tat A REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERN MENT CANNOT SUBSIST beyond a certain stage That as soon as a great PEOPLE BECOME RICH STRONG AND GREAT THE REPUBLio DROOPS AND DIES We believe this is so of necessity and not by chance We believe that there is not a single case of record where the masses of a great nation possessed the intelligence to initiate laws and were intelligent t enough to compel tne enforcement of such good laws as they might pass It would seem as if science teaches that men are created to follow their mastersthe inspired minds of the world HISTORY SHOWS THAT A KING MUST BE AND IS FOUND IN EVERY NATION to guide its people in every great crisis Neither is the change to be dreaded or looked for ward to with foreboding While ware e in fact largely under the conditions of a monarchy we have the evils with out the benefits of the same Bryan and the Income Tax At present the government can draft the citizen but cannot draft the pocketbook Slowly but surely the dollar is being exalted and the man de based Justice in taxation must be restoredThe xentiment prevailing among those who advocate an income tax justifies

ASSIMILATION A Republican Newspaper Ac- cfount of a Philippine Battle Just past this a few hundred yard we saw a solitary body lying in the read The body was almost stripped of clothing and there were no marks of rank left on the bloodsoaked coat But the face of the dead man had a look I had never noticed on the face of other dead men I had found in in surgent uniform on the field of battle in the wake of an American firing line The features were clear cut and forehead high and shapely I decided the man must have been an insurgent officer A soldier came running down thetrailThats old Pilar he said We got the old rascal I guess hes sorry he ever went up against the Thirty thirdThere aint no doubt about its be ing Pilar rattled on the young sol dier We got his diary and his let ters and all his papers and Sullivan of our companys got his pants adSniders got his shoes but he cant wear them because theyre too small and a sergeant in G company got one of his silver spurs and a lieutenant

written under the date of December 2the day he was killedThe general has given me the pick of all the men that can be spared and ordered me to defend the pass I re alize what a terrible task is given me And yet I feel that this is the most glorious moment 01 my life What I do is done for my beloved country No sacrifice can be too great A private sitting by the camp fire was exhibiting a han kerchief Its old Pilars Its got Dolores Hosea on the corner I guess that was his girl Well its all off with Gregorio Anyhow said Private Sullivan got his pants He wont need em any more The man who had the generals shoes strode proudly past refusing with scorn a Mexican dollar and a pair of shoes taken from one of the private insurgent soldiers A private sitting on a rock was examining a golden locket containing a curl of a womans hair Got the locket off his neck said the soldier As the main column started on Its march for the summit of the mountain a turn in the trail brought us again in sight of the insurgent general far down below us There had been no time to bury him Not even a blanket or a poncho had been thrown over himA crow sat on the dead mans feet Another perched on his head The fog settled down upon us We could see the body no longer We carved not a line and we raised not a stone But we left him alone in his glory And when Private Sullivan went by in his trousers and Snider with his shoes and the other man who had the cuff buttons and the sergeant who had the spur and the lieutenant who had the other spur and the man that had the handkerchief and another man that had his shoulder straps it sud denly occurred to me that his glory was about all we had left himRich ard Henry Little in Chicago Tribune Rights never conflict duties never clash Can it be our duty to

Allowing that the population of Nebraska has increased twenty per cent since the census of 1890 we find that the increased indebtedness is over 109 for each man woman and child in the state If the people of tlie state of Nebraska with abundant crops arein this slhorttime plunged 139000 000 more in debt than at the beginning of this period how many years will it require under the same regime to place the property entirely in the hands of mortgage holders Those not acquainted with the present methods of loaning money in the west and south will be astonished at the large increase in chattel mortgages shown by the report This is explained by the fact that the lender prefers a short time loan at an increased rate of interest secured by a mortgage on growing live stock to one on real estate An analysis of similar reports made by other state officers in the west and southwest will show practically the same results Instead of there being any decrease of mortgage debt in Indiana the mortgage debt real estate and chattel has increased during every year of the McKinley administration and the total increase for the three years completed is in excess of 5OOOOOOO In two years of McKinley prosperity the chattel mortgages of Indiana have increased 255151 in number and 7382234 in amount and the total mortgage debt of the state in three years of McKinley prosperity has increased

SAYS Private monopolies are Indefensible and intolerable They destroy competition control the price of all material and of the finished product thus robbing both producer and consumer lessen the employment of labor and arbitrarily fix the terms and conditions thereof and deprive individual energy and small capital of their opportunity for betterment They are the most efficient agent yet devised for appropriating the fruits of industry to the benefit of the few at the expense of the many and unless their Insatiate greed is checked all wealth will be aggregated in a few hands and the repub Uo destroyedWe the democratic party to an unceasing warfare in Nation State and tit against private monopoly in every form WILLIAM J BRYAN SAYS A private monopoly has always been an outlaw No defense can bn made of an Industrial sytetu In wlftcti one or a few men can control for their own profit the output or price of any article of merchandise Under such a system the consumer suffers extortion the producer of raw material has but one purchaser and must sell at the arbitrary price fixed the lahorer has but one employer and is powerless to protest against Injustice either In wraqea or in condition of labor the small stock holder Is at the mercy of the speculator while the traveling salesman contributes his salary to the overgrown profits of the trust Since but a small proportion of the people can share In the advantages secured by private monopoly It follows that the remainder of the people are not only excluded from the benefits but are the helpless victims of every monopoly organized It Is difficult to overestimate the Immediate Injustice that my be done or to calculate the ultimate effect of this injustice upon the social and political welware of the people Our platform after suggesting certain specific remedies pledges the party to an unceasing warfare against private monopoly in nation state and city I heartily approve of this promise If elected It shall be my earnest and constant endeavor to fulfill the promise In letter and spirit One of the main reasons why men truggle so hard to obtain a monop oly is that it enables them to charge more than the worth of the goods or services they supply In the Bramkamp wire nail case the attorney for the trust admitted that the combine had raised the price from 80 cents to 20 a keg whole sale securing thereby a monopoly profit of several million dollars That trust went to pieces but recently an other has been formed and wire nails have advanced over 140 per cent be yond the ordinary competitive price Coal Trust Extortion The coal combine was investigated by congress in 1893 and the report declares 1 that in 1888 the extortions of the coal monopoly averaged more than 1 a ton or 39000000 for the year and 2 that from 1873 to 1886 200000000 more than a fair market price was taken from the public by tills combination It also appeared that in 1892 the combine raised the price 125 to 135 a ton on the kinds used by housekeepers though the price of coal was already high and the cost of mining diminishing every year The Linseed Oil Trust in 1887 put the price up from 38 to 52 cents a gal lon or nearly 5000000 additional tax on the yearly output In the same year the copper Syndi cate put up the price from 10 to 17 and 18 cents a pound or 30000000 au don on the yearly outppt A congressional investigation in 1893 brought out the fact that on the strength of a rumor that the internal revenue tax was to be increased by congress the Whisky Trust raised its prices 25 cents a gallon which would amount to an additional profit of 12 500000 on its yearly output Jump In Sugar In 1888 just after the Sugar Trust was formed the average price of raw sugar was vhe same as in 1885 but the average price of efined sugar ad vanced so that the difference between the pric J of raw sugar and the price of refined sugar was 76 per cent more than in 1885 and about 70 per cent more than in 1887 the year the trust was formed Recently sugar has made advances amounting to a total of 2 cents on the pound For a dozen years we have paid each year a good deai more per pound for refining sugar than re did in 1885 although the cost of refining has been constantly diminish ing and our sugar bill nas averaged at least 10000000 and perhaps 20 000000 a year more because of the trust Standard 011 Again she Standard Oil is another monop oly that has kept prices form falling as much as the diminished cost of transportation and refining would have caused them to fall in an open market and at times ithas lifted prices abso lutely as well as relatively in spite of the vast improvements in processes of manufacture great cheapening of transportation by the pipeline service and the falling price of crude oil From 1894 to 1897 for example the price of refined oil went up 14 per cent while the price of crude oil declined 6 per cent Oil rose at wholesale in New York from 3 cents in November Io97 to 6 cents in December 1899 and it has gone still higher in 1900 One may charge the fair value of the services he renders without a mon opoly But monopoly gives power to charge more than that value in other words monopoly confers the in estimable privilege of demanding something for nothing The Telegraph Monopoly We pay twice as much for our tele grams as government ystems charge the telephone monopoly charged the federal government 75 per phone for service the government is now sup plying for itself at a cost of 10 per phone and even in our largest CItY exchanges where the monopoly charges 90 to 250 tae service could be rendered atka profit for a uniform charge of 30 a year The Bell monopoly in Grand Rap ids Wis charged 36 for a house and 48 for a business place while a co zerative telephone exchange Is oper ating in the same place at 6 for a house and 18 for a business place per year and is making money The ex orbitant rates of express monopolies are notorious and even railroads have been known to make excessive charges Municipal Franchises it issue same witn all our city mon opolies Gas sells at 1 which can be made for 20 cents and distributed for 15 as we know from various gas reports and investigations- The above are but a few samples from an enormous mass of facts dem onstrating that private monopoly tends to extortion Extortionate charges lead of course to enormous profits and the building of vast fortunes which become in their turn the instruments of further ex tortfon The monopolists roll in wealtn while the working masses and competitive classes are cheated out of their fair share of the worlds wealth Those who build palaces do not live in them Builders Enter Not In Those who dig coal have little fuel Those who make clothes are illclad Those who grow wheat and corn are poorly fed- Those who build railroads do not travelThose who do most of the work do not enjoy the fruits of their labor while those who do little or nothing enjoy much all because privat mon opoly gives some men the power of appropriating what others produce Here are some of the profits private monopoly has made Oil trust 23000000 in three months about 100 per cent a year on the cap ital water and all The oil monop oly has been known to make 520 per cent on its whole capital and on one investment 3000 per cent per year was obtained througn railroad

ple if they become known and so many of those most open to the public gaze try to hide their gains by watering their capital Ninety per cent on the real investment is only 9 per cent on a capital watered to tenfold bulk Fraud ana extortion are among the most prolific and are quite the most deplorable of all the results of private monopoly J1 SLAYEEYEECOGNtZED Amendment to the Constitution for
