We have only this alternative: Some- body must and will control the volume, and therefore the value of money. Shall it be the people's representatives or the money- loaners and fundholders, who are always in favor of scarce and dear money? But it is sometimes sug- gested that we refer this whole matter to the production and avail- able supply of the money metals. Then suppose we simplify the mat ter still further by restricting the coinage of silver. This places the entire management in the hands of the owners of gold. They supply it or corner it at will, making money scarce or plenty as best suits their interests or caprices. This brings us to that condition of things mentioned by Mr. Garfield when he said: "Whoever controls the volume of the money is abso- lute master of all industry and commerce."

All true Americans are lovers of liberty As such let us hold to the truth, and demand justice, which must be maintained, if the wisdom of our fathers is perpetuated. It is in- deed sad to realize that our con- stitution is being trampled upon and that our people are fast losing confidence in the judiciary. They have awakened to the realization of a slavery as complete as Israel was in Egypt; with high taxes, high interest, high tariff, incorpo- rated capital, with 100,000 agents and drummers at a cost to the people of $1,000,000 per day, all protected, encouraged and nourish- rd by the government.

DALLAS, TEXAS, THURSDAY, JULY 7, 1892. | Whole No. 532. A Review of Mr. Reagan's Letter. JAMES M. ARMSTRONG, SR. In a long letter to H. H. Moore, of Brownwood, Texas, de- clining to speak at that place under date of June 22, published in the Galveston News of June 26, Mr. Reagan, says . "There are so many questions of public policy upou which the Democratic party and the Alliance or third party agrees that I would be glad to do anything in my power to induce them to act in harmony, aud to thus secure to themselves, and to the country, the power to inaugurate and carry out such po- litical reforms as it might be found possible to make." The idea that there is a single "public policy" upon which the Democratic and Third party agree, is but the silly vaporings of senil- ity. Let us examine some of the commissioner's propositions. 1.

July 7,1892 the original owners—the Indians; but, thanks to gunpowder, whisky, red tape, small pox, cholera and other weapons of civilization, there are not many of them left to com- plain. However, Uncle Sam has paid his Indian agents in behalf of the Indians (?) from 1791 to 1881 $139,672,697, to say nothing of the lives lost and money spent in In- dian wars from King Phillip's war down. The above expenditures of blood and treasure have been made by the people to secure this heritage to themselves and their childen. Let us see whatr has been done with it. In 1785 the Continental Con- gress, in an ordinance providing for the sale of Lands in the North- west territory, reserved for public schools Section 16 in each town- ship. This act practically set apart one thirty-sixth of all that territory. This ordinance was drawn by a committee of which Jefferson was chairman.

Do people ever consider how speedily the labor and economical problems that now vex the com- munity would be settled if the working people of the country earned more money ? In other words, if they had more money to spend. Why, if the head of every family in the land earned say not less than a thousand dollars a year there would not be factories enough to supply the demand for goods, and the surpluses of raw and food products would disappear like magic. The same thing applies with eve a greater force to Europe, where the masses habitually labor for what would be considered star- vation wages here. Low wages mean small con- sumption of the crudest and cheapest materials and foods. The factor of cost of every product under the sun is labor^ and the greater the demand for the finer and higher classes of goods the greater the amount of employment furnished both absolutely and rela- tively.

In the struggle for supremacy be- tween the contending forces prin- ciples are involved—on the suc- cess or failure of which depends the future weal or woe of the great common people of our coun- try. It isa crisis in the history of one of the greatest nations of the great nations of the world. Other nations have gone down to destruc- tion under conditions the very counterpart of ours to-day. That is the rapid aggregation of great wealth upon one side, and extreme poverty increasing upon the other. Such conditions cannot long exist without that natural resistance to oppression, f'which always comes from a civilized, enlightened peo- ple, imbued with a spirit of free- dom and justice. This resistance forces an issue between the monop- olistic forces on one side and th...
