ho Is too upright a man to encourage what lie knows to be wrong so- ho has notified Hannn thnt they must run tho roost without him this time ExCzar Tom Reed is another ele t ent of their party the Republicans have been unable to enthuse this trip iry as they way they have not roused him from his lair as yet and their chances for doing so are not favorable All its great uicnaro either deserting

refoge Conspirator Taylor sends us some interesting news lie says in case of the election of a Republican governor he will be brave return to Kentucky and forgive und forget He continues that all his nights are trances and all his days are dreams so great is his anticipation of joy at the thought of getting back to Old Kentucky But we fear that from all indications Mr Taylor is not going to be called upon soon to play the Prodigal Son act Ills sojurn in In diana IB liable to be a lengthy and somewhat indefinite one at least his residence there is npt to be permanent for the next four years anyhow unless Mounts successor be more of a gentle man than the present incumbent of the Indiana gubernatorial chair What a parody on the reign of law would ensuo should Yerkes by some hook or crook become elected The doors of the penitentiaries would be thrown open to their inmates government jobs would be passed around to the criminals as re freshments big burly coons would soon be domineering

Anthony has decided to invade South Dakota on his spielingjag the Senator eent Mr Hanna a polite invitation to a joint debate NowHanna ill a debate would look exactly like thirty cents and he has got sense enough left to know this though it was doubtless after a long struggle between his vanity and his brains that he came to this conclusion So he has accord ingly announced that he has decided to pay no attention to Mr PeUhrews chal enge Ye Gods what a sight would have followed had tho meeting been arranged The Senator from South Dakota would have chewediip the Senator from the NationatLarge un til the Black Hills would not have pos sessed cover enough for Hanna to hide his head But Marks no fool he knew thl1IIO he just grinned and said nit Though ho is as much tickeled with finding that he can speak as was the gentleman who went into ecstacies over the discovery that he wrote prose yet he prefers W orato without accompani mont or opposition But his biograph ers are hardly liable to hand down to posterity mention of the fact that ho was an orator and only through his memoirs is the secret apt to escape and enlightenlsucceeding ages McKiXLXY the Figurehead is the title that shall designate to posterity the present head of our government Of all things nothing is so pitiable or despica ble as a nonentity and that is the ap pellatlon that describes McKinley It fits him alt over for he is a man with no will or opinion of his own i as weak as water and vacillating as the sands of the sea Ho can bo bribed bought or sold and at no time has he been the real Executive of the nation Every move that he has made has been that of another Hanna and others have supplied the brains and McKinley has been merely their puppet It really ought to give old Mac some sand to see how his bosses run over and bully him but hos as meek as Moses and puts up with it all None of the big Republi cans pay any attention to him and if his name didnt appear on theballot no one would know ho is running Poor fellow he is held in contempt by Hanmv and ignored by Roosevelt The latter in a speech the other day con tinually referred to Mr Bryan as Vmy opponent and otherwise acted as though he Teddy were the head of the ticket as in truth ho is Tho lres dent however doesnt seem to care and appears contented as long as they pay him his per annum and extras He is perfectly happy like old King

Republican Times greatest offspring is its latest so the saying goes and now the desertion of another prominent Republican proves this Its Frank Monnett this time tho former AttorneyGeneral of Ohio He comes out strongly in a current issue and says to Mac goodbye ma honey Im gone Mr Monnett is very strongly opposed to the trust system and states that he cannot support a ticket whose success would be certain ruin to the country and sure death to the constitution In his manifesto he points out the fact that action and not talking is essential to Bryans victory and lie exhorts all victims of the combinations of capital which Hanna says are not trusts to stand up for their independence and throw off tho yoko of bondage And this is just exactly what the Democrats converted Republicans and Republi can victims are doing this fall Never was the country so stirred up as now or so much interest taken Vo are all working together and wo are going to win Put that in your pipe Mark and smoke it BY their action in delaying and pro renting the passage of a new election law the Republicans have earned the contempt of the nation at large They have forfeited the respect of alt classes by their pretense of virtue and then falling far short of it In plain words they arc a set of deceivers and liars All during the last campaign they could do nothing but shriek The Geobel Law and turn up their hands to heaven in holy borrow All tho Re publicans in the State and a parcel of harrowed Holiuesses from the Demo cratic ranks a la the Truly Good Deacon Hilly Breckeuridge took the stump in violent denunciation of the infamous Uocbel Law They sighed for freedom they wept for liberty and altogether they made a very pretty display of dramatic hysterics But now what a change of front When the Legislature met with the purpose and summoned for the pur pose of pacifying these calamity howl ers and repealing the old law what do these holy righteous Godfearing citizens do but place every obstacle in their power in the way of framing a new bill to govern elections They say they want civil liberty Fiddlesticks they want to act contrary block the passage of a new law and then make their own remissness and general cussedness a campaign issue cvorvgbody are on to their tactics now the scales have fallen from the peoples eyes and they all see these blamed turncoats in their truo colors Think its going to do you any good boys Shoo fly WHEN knighthood was in flower deeds of merit received the alcohodt as their reward Later during tho palmy days of the First Empire the cross of the Legion of Honor was be stowed upon heroes as their just duo Even now In this degenerate age Eng land rewards gallantry on the battle field or illustrious destination in other professions lIy the award of tho Vic toria cross And now what does Ameri ca the grandest nation under the sun give to her sons for toll and services rendered Simplo a lull dinner pail Truly is tho age of chivalry dead buried and beyond resurrection when the faithful service and honest labor of many years reaps only a meal and that not always a square one as its mead These trust men and mine owners seem to think their employees have no souls or cravings for higher things and that so long as their animal cravings are satisfied their spiritual instincts should also be This is tho most monstrous injustice of this day and genera tion i theso poor miners and factory bands are as much men as their employers They too have families to feed children to educate and the same desire to rise in the world that animal ed their masters before they became wealthy and rose But they art checked and held down in bondage and oppressed and there isno batter thing in sight for them unless Bryan be elected and a different system of payment be inaugurated in whichwill be included the recognition of merit and desert And this will come to pass be fore many days for Bryan will be elect ed since they can not keep a good man

Madison in order to get them to the polls Who ever hcardof threatened law to allow only those to vote who own taxable property to the yalue of 4000 Any sane man would recog nize at a glance the following letter to beone of the Republicans many de ceiving Ky Oct 1st 1900 MR DEus SIR Wo are in the midst of the most important campaign in the whole history of our country from both a State and National point of view This is true for several reasons the first pf which our civil liberties are at stake in Kentucky and must be protected at all hazardsfor which these sacred rights nothing isleft of that proud heritage for which our fathers fought and shied their blood on thousand battlefields The National race and the election of McKinley and Roosevelt is very import ant to the commercial manufacturing and agricultural interests of the coun try all of which have been revived with wonderful rapidity under tho present administration and which will con tinue unless prevented by the election of Bryan and the installation in power of the party which brought such crushing disaster to the country from 02 to 90 We are meeting with much encouragement from honest patriotic Democrats whH love Country bettor than party and it only remains for the Republicans to do their duty to insure certain victory And this committee takes the liberty ofappointing you a committee of one to see every voter in your immediate vicinity and urge upon them the necessity of going to tho polls and casting their votes early Stay on the grounds until tho votes are all cast counted and the result an nounccd Be ready at all time to assist in bringing to the polls tIm old the halt the lame by providing means of conveyance If you have no vehicle get your neighbor to furnish one By an organization of thw kind victory is sure our liberties secured slid the threatened law to allow only those to vote who own taxable property to the value of 1000 will be averted B JCLAY Chairman Campaign Committee J T AIcCuNTOCic Chairman County Committee THE colored brother is looming into prominence just now Its election time you know On every liand you may find him surrounded by his Republican backers who are pouring into lila ears the old old story of how they Set him free and telling him the Democrats arc trying to rob him of his vote thus persuading him to vote against his best interests and thereby put himself in abondage infinitely worse than that which Lincoln nndGrant freed him from Tim Republicans are not the negroes friends they aro lila masters They need mid uso him only at election times for without him In- K 1itucay they can do nothing since Co per cent of their party in this Stato EthiopiansWe education among tbo dar ies cs a means of enlightening them in regard to the true state of af fairs At present they are steeped in ignorance and have no idoa about poll tics save that the Republicans treed them and therefore they blindly vote that ticket They do not know or realize that they ale thus voting to put t1i mBelroQ in B condition ofaclualand flnahtial taryatlg j They Irg large dayJftj rr tlll with JJepaWiwBBla r power and 18 prices fjfoyerylhingtcxcept labor are going up they will soon be brought to a iw eful plight And yet the poor fanatical creatures cant see this and when a stump ppantor veils Lincoln at them theyll invariably make a straight dash for the ballot box and let go at the log cabin As we have said tho only way to obviate this state of fanaticism is to endeavor to spread the light of learning among them anti in thorays shied by knowledge they may seo whats what and save themselves before it is too late But at present they are clean gone tho other way and so tr prevent big burly coons from dominating us can casions from official positions as they invariably will should McKinley win for he cannot got out of putting some of them in office to prevent this from coming to pass vote against McKinley and all be represents On the authority of Mr Peake who spoke hero recently wo have it that three hundred white lady stenographers were lately turned out from government jobs and a cor responding number of colored women put in God forbid that Such a state of affairs should continue So vote the blacks down this timo and then edu cate them so theyll be for us next time RELIGIOUS Rev Brown editor Christian Guide of Louisville will fill Rov Lloyds

State of Kansas and 15 000000 into Oklahoma What this means tit a single State is best shown by a few figures From her wheat crop alone the wealth of Kansas capitafor all public schools ten times over The railroads of the State share largely prosperityIt took 200000 box cares to movo the Those cares would make 13000 ordinary trains or one single train which would reach from Topeka Kan sas to Bullnlo N Y lhe barest lasted five weeks It required the use of 5000 machines and the labor of 25000 men For labor alone the farmers paid out nearly a million and a half dollars There were 4796129 acres of the State in wheat alone Early in the summer when it was apparent that the crop was to be so large the labor problem became a matter for serious consideration The rail roads made half fare rates for harvest hands and were not particular as to men beating their way into the State on freight trains The result of these efforts was soon felt and while high wages were paid from 2 to 3 per day there was no grain really lost for lack of help to harvest it The scene in the wheat section of the State was most remarkable From one elevator in Bar ton county twenty miles of wheat stretched away into harrizon There were roads through it but these wero lost in the waving grain Breezes serpentinewagonManyinches In length and caaried from sixty to seventy perfect grains With in the memory of the farmers who reaped this harvest in the section of Kansas had appeared as an arid and unproductive waste which cave no promise for the future In the mercantile business a prosperous year means a

control the price of all material and of the finished product thus robbing both producer and connniiier 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 froth of Industry to the benefit of the few at the expense of the many and unless their laxatlate greed la checked all wealth will be aggregated In a few hands and the republic destroyed We pledge the democratic party to an unceasing warfare In Nation State and city against private monopoly In every form WIUIA5I J BRYAN SAYS A private monopoly hat always been an outlaw No defense can be made of an Industrial y tem In which one or a few mos can control for their own prollt the output or price of any nrtlcle of merchandise Under such a system the consumer suffers extortion the producer of raw material lies but one purchaser and must sell at thdgrbltr price fixed the laborer bas but one employer and It powerless to protest against Injustice either In wrap 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 smell 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 benefit but are the lielpless victim of every monopoly organized It Is difficult to overestimate the Immediate Injustice that muy be done or to calculate the ultimate effect of this Injustice upon the socUl and politic welware of the people Our platform after snge tloR certain peclflo remedies pledges tho pirty to an unceasing warfare HIlt 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 struggle so hard to obtain a monop oly IB that It enables them to charge more than the worth of the goods or services they supply In the Bramkainp wire nail case the attorney for the trust admitted that the combine had raised the price from 80 cents to 2oO a keg wholesale securing thereby a monopq y 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 Extortions The coal combine was investigated by congress in 1893 and the report declares l that In 1888 the extortions of the coal monopoly averaged more than 1 a ton or 49000000 for the year and 2 that from 1873 to 1880 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 L3u 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 cute put up the price from 10 to 17 and IS 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 wu formed the average price of raw sugar was ne same as in 18SG but the average price of refined Sugar advanced so that the difference between the pricj 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 mad advances amounting to a total of cents on the pound For a dozen years we have paid each rear a good deal more per pound for refining sugar than we did in 1885 although the cost of refining nas been constantly diminish ing and our sugar bill nas averaged at least 10000000 and perhaps 20 000000 a year more because of th trusti Standard Oil Again ihe Standard Oil is another monop oly that has kept prices form falling aa much as the diminished cost of xtransportation and refining would have caused them to fall in an open market and at times it has lifted prices absolutely as well as relatively In spite of the vast Improvements In processes of manufacture great cheapening o transportation by the pipeline service and the falling price of crude of From 1894 to 1897 for example th price of refined oil went up 14 per cen while the price of crude oil k 6 per cent Oil rose at wholesale i New York from 3 cents in November iu97 to centsIn December 1899 and it has gone still higher In 1900 One may charge the fair value o the services he renders without a mon opoly But monopoly gives power to charge more than that value in other words monopoly confers the estimable privilege of demandin something tor 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 ciry excnanges where the monopoly charges 90 to 250 tIe service could be rendered at a profit for a uniform cjargo of 30 a year RapitcoIIsephone 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 havtr been known to make excessive charges Municipal Franchise u is ue same wits all our city monopolies Gas sells at I which abe made for 20 cents and for 15 as we know from various gas reports and investigations- The above are but a few sample- from an enormous mass of facts dem onstrating that private monopoly tends to extortion Extortionate charges lead of course to enormous Prowls and the building of vast fortunes which become in thel turn the instruments of further ex tortion 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 Hulldcrs Enter Sot Iu Those who dig coal have little fuel Those who make clothes are illclad chose 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 prlvat mon opoly gives some men the power of appropriating what others produce Here are some of the profits private monopoly has made Oil1 trust 23000000 in three months capItaloly has been known to make 520 per cent on its whole capital and on one investment 3000

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 loudta ing 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 lg almost un thinkable and n disgrace so lasting that more than a generation would have to pass before It could be wiped outThey stand for lawlessness and dis order for dishonesty and dishonor for license and disaster at home and cow ardly shrinking from duty abroad WHAT HISTORIANS SAY OF JEFFER SONS ADMINISTRATION And what followed all this hysteria and malice Invocation of dread spec tres and prediction of the mob What was the sequelAn administration as Schouler justly describes It peaceful progressive and popular beyond all precedent especially strong and successful Just where the direst disas ter had been foreboded In the man agement of the finances of the coun The 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 ir resistible 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 counterfeit a leader of the common people in the direction of their best verdict is not simply that of Jeffersons admirers The historians are harmonious Mr Morse in his volume on Jefferson in the American State anieu series and neither the series as a whole nor Mr Morses volume in particular will ever be ac culled of making admiration of Jeffer son 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 troubleswlth England Mr Morse Is writing of the close of Ills first administration when the campaign for his reelection ap proached Everything he says re dounded to his good fame and popularity 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 been for many years past so free from Irritation and anxiety growing out of foreign affairs Had political kindliness ever before permeated the nation as it did today Four years of prosperity and tranquility left little room for discontent with the govern ment Amid such influences political opposition pined and almost died The verdict of history on the administration of the latter day Jefferson ITllllam Jennings Bryan who has been more bitterly abused than even his great prototype will closely follow out the parallel TO SUPPLANTWiIITES American Werkraea Will 3e 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 people 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 become 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 hand and foot in the clutches of the syndicates and trust combines of the have we In store for the Philippine Islands should the McKinley 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 Whittler 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 represen tations 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 Cheap 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 utilization of this cheap labor NOTHING CAN BE MORE CERTAIN THAN THAT IN TIME OUR HOME LABOR WILL SUFFER FROM THE COMPETITION 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 This was when the Omaha Bee was opposing the conquest of the Philip pines and endeavoring to shape the course of the administration LINCOLN VS HIS PARTY May 30 1850 Speech at Bloomington DX at tho formation of party In State Arnold p 93 Let us In building our new party plant ourselves on the rock of the Declaration

autocratic and unconstitutional power of denying therlght of representation and suffrages 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 lie has recognized slavery and polygamy In Sulu He has made war upon the nonslave holding nonpolygamons inhabitants of Luzon He has consented to the taxation without representation of the inhabitants of Porto Rico He hag withheld Independence from the inhabitants of Cuba This Is Imperialism In his message President McKinley saidForcible annexation Is criminal ag gressionHe proceeded to forcibly annex 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 demand of the sugar trust He gave pledges to Spain and Cuba that Cuba should be free and independent He has created a military govern ment in Cuba which has thwarts every step toward Island autonomy and which reeks with theft and corrup tion of every kind Record In the Philippine 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 haSonl7 succeeded In filling graves hospitals insane asylums and fat Insular

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 fare of other dead men I had found In In surgent uniform on the field of battle in the wake of an American firing line Tho features were clear cut and forehead high and shapely I decided the man must have been an Insurgent officer A soldier came running down the trail Thats old Pilar he said We got the old rascal I guess hes sorry he ever went up against the Thitty thIrd There aint no doubt about its be ing Pllar rattled 5h the young sol dier We got his diary and his let ters and all his papers and Sullivan of our companys got his pants sid Sniders 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 got the other and somebody swiped the cuff buttons before I got here or I would have swiped them apd all I got was a stud button and his collar with blood on

the camp fire was exhibiting a handkerchief 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 I 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
