THE RAILROAD TOTE. The railroad companies make strea nous efforts to use tneir employes as a voting force against the reforms de manded by the People's tarty. To this end they do not hesitate to resort to intimidation. They tell them that any redaction in the rates for trans porting persons and products will surely be followed by a reduction of wages. Of course this threat applies only to that class of operatives who re ceive the smallest wages. Under all circumstances, the princely salaries of the magnates must remain undi minished, the corruption fund unim paired, and the hordes of lobbyists and attorneys employed to defeat the will of the people, in active service. These threats, applying only to those who receive the smallest wages, are calculated to exercise a decided in fluence upon the very pcor and the very ignorant, but among the more manly and intelligent the People's party will not be without a following. even if no efforts are made to counter act the misrepresentations m...

r A MONEY DESPOTISM. Debt Slavery The Cause and the Remedy. The debt-burdened farmer, the poverty-stricken laborer and the business man who is trembling on the verge of bankruptcy, all suffer from the same causes, and would be benefitted by the same measures of relief. Nei ther the producers of wealth nor the .'legitimate business classes who ren der useful service by its exchange, have any controlling power over the machinery by which all exchanges are effected By law and custom, money is the medium by which all debts must be paid on the demand of the creditor. The price of products is ex pressed in the language of money, and when products change hands money is the consideration. Hence money is the chief factor in the mechanism of exchange, and money is controlled by the favored few, who by law are enabled to dictate the manner of its distribution. This legalized monopoly of money is equivalent to a monopoly of all that money will purchase. The peo ple create wealth by labor, but m...

WASHINGTON EDITORIAL CORRESPOND ENCE. Among the proceedings of the United States Senate on the 17th Inst, in the In terest of a more popular government was the presentation of a joint resolution adopted by the Legislature of Wisconsin that elected William F. Vilas as the suc cessor to United States Senator John C. Spooner, who was a devoted personal and political friend of President Harri son. Senator Vilas presented the resolution, which was referred to the committee on privileges and elections, and the text of which Is as follows: Whereas, The causes no longer exist, which Influenced the "fathers" at the time the consti tution of the United States was framed to pro vide that the Senators In Congress should be elected by the Legislatures of the several states, and Whereas, The experience of lecent years has demonstrated the necessity of a change in the manner of electing Senators If that body Is to continue to represent the conservative public sentiment; and Whereas, It Is more In ...

' By a resolution passed during the eea 1 ' :a of tbe National Reform Preaa Asso Jillca held t Indianapolis November 10 to 21, 1831, It was made my duty to j ;:? sat for your consideration the plan r ! ta organization entered Into by many c? our business agents called theNa I'car.l Union; also to present some of the redoes why the National Reform Pres3 Association opposed the same. I do not Intend here, at this time, to enter into a lengthy or detailed discussion of the plan or of the particulars which, 11 made public, would perhaps lead to a war of personalities and consequently attract tha public attention from the mala ques tion which we desire them to consider. The organization of this "combine" (and we know no other name for It) has been talked of for some months past, tnd, we understand, several Btate Alli ances have indorsed It, at the earnest solicitation of their business agent, and without, so far as we are able to learn, generally understanding it.

Certain baking powder makers are publishing falsified extracts from the Government reports, with pretended analyses and certificates, wherein an attempt is made to compare their baking powders with ths "Royal," or making bogus tests from house to house, their obvious purpose being to counteract the recent exposures of the inferiority of their own goods arising from their impurity, low strength, and lack of keeping qualities as shown by the Government chemists and others. As to whether any of these baking powders are equal to the "Royal," the official tests clearly deter mine. .When samples of various baking powders were purchased from the grocers, and analyzed by the United States Government Chemists and the Chemists of State and City Boards of Health, the reports revealed the fact that the "Royal" contained from 28 per cent, to 60 per cent, more leavening -1 At- 1 ...1 I 1 ' . sirengin man any runer crea...

We live in a world that, as far as we have lnvestigated,ls governed by law and order. Everywhere we find certain re sults flow from certain actions. The stars move in their orbits in obedience to the law of motion and gravitation, so that their courses can be foretold for hundreds of years by those versed in as tronomy. Minerals form in conformance with the laws of crystalization, or ac cording to chemical action. Plants have their laws of growth, the possibilities of their development being contained in the seed. Man has aptly been called the crown of creation. The bible says: "And God created man in His own image, and gave him dominion over everything on earth." The superiority of man over an imals is in his mind, not in the body. As far as we know, man is the only being who can reason with himself, and deci...
