W I' si The output of the gold mines of the world has about doubled in the last ten years, and the product for 1896 is expected to reach $220,000, 000. The Democratic party promised free trade and glorious times in 1892—-what did you get? This year it promises free silver and the same glorious times—what will yeu get?. It is the same old deceiving Dem­ ocratic party that has nearly ruined the country that wants to give the people some more prosperity. And the free silver project is a good deal worse than the free trade proposition. The same logic that would endorse the free coinage of 53 cents worth of silver into a ''dollar" would favor coining 20 cents Worth of the metal into a "dollar." Reducing the value of the "dollar" will bring anything but prosper­ ity. Col. Kiefer, the St. Paul con­ gressman, is a candidate for a third term, and the St. Paul Dispatch publishes letters showing that he and his friends only wanted a second term two years ago. They tried to work that on Fletche...

These lakes not only furnish beautiful places for camping out, but also furnish fine fishing for all those who enjoy that sport.

FreeH— Four years ago the Democratic party won. an election on the free trade issue, in the interests of the American people—especially the laboringman. The result was decreased work and decreased wages. Now that same party wants to win on the free silver issue. That will give the work ingman money of decreased value for his already decreased wages The laboringman should rush to •the support of the lovely old Democratic party, with its nice "free" issues.

VEKY NEAT AND NICE. SLOVENLY OFFICERS NOT TOLERATED IN THE AMERICAN NAVY. £h« Recent Retirement of Captain Reed Because He Kept Potatoes In His Batli tab and Was Careless of His Apparel* Some of His Eccentricities. Uncle Sam bos no place on any of his n'lce white warships for a commodore who' does not wear socks or underclothing and who uses his bathtub as a potato bin. It has taken two long sessions of the naval examining board to decide this point, but now it may be freely stated as a fact. Sounds llfee an extract from -a comic opera libretto or the prologue of a mock trial, doesn't it? Butt it isn't. It is ttie substance of a decision made.in all serious­ ness by aboard of high naval officials, who received advice and (xratisel in their delib­ erations from the president of the United States and the secretary of the navy. The case in question was that of Captain Allen V. Reed, who, as the senior captain in the navy, was some time ago entitled to be pro* xnoted to the rank of comm...

V« 4 S uV^V. f: The conclusion of the average voter of this city now is that Bro. Towne is most all wind. Mr. Towne didn't discover any great uprising of Republicans here to tollow him into Democracy and Populism. It is right that the free silver ites should look to the repudiating states of the South for solid sup­ port of their coursc. Because free trade Democracy has brought upon the people of this country great disaster, the voters are now asked to adopt free silver Democracy. Harper's Weekly is now sup­ porting the Republican national ticket. It has been on the other side ever since Cleveland appeared in national politics. St. Paul Dispatch: The word "free" and the idea of getting something for nothing 'catches a sucker every time. Four years ago it was free trade. This time it is fre«* silver. Congressman Towne has made his defense in a public speech before the people of Little Falls, and he will probably make a real free silver speech later. He certainly needs to it. The tota...
