A KD WHY MORE BONDS LET SOMEBODY ANSWER THIS PRESSING QUESTION. VTas It To Fay Current Expenses There's So Law for That In Fact There's No Law for Any of .It It's L'usurpatlon. Gentle Shrpperd, Tell Ts Why. Another issue of gold bonds ought to cause sober, serious consideration by every patriotic citizen. Let all party bias and prejudice be laid aside and as a citizen, looking solely to the welfare of our country alone, let every man come to an honest, conscientious conclusion on the subject. There are three reasons given for the issue of bonds. 1. To increase the gold reserve. 2. To strengthen the public credit. 3. To provide money for the current expenses of the Government. That it w ill not increase the gold reserve is proven by the former issue of bonds. That it wholly failed to do so, was pointed out by the New York Herald. The Herald says : "Last February when the treasury reserve ran low it was replenished by the sale of fifty millions of new government 5 per cent, bonds for ...

Theke is no rubbing it out that the next political struggle will be on the question of finance. The only political organization that can truly lay claim to being an educator, is the people's party. Think honestly over President Cleveland's recommendation to congress in regard to the money issue. Now honestly; does not the president's position assumed on the money issue, savor of "wild cat ism."

IGNORANT PEOPLE. THEY ARE DESTITUTE OF GOOD HORSE SENSE. Zeal of Every Lover of His Couutrv Should lie Unabated If We Can Tide Over Two Years Without devolution There'll lie Another Landslide. The Nation 1 Demoralized, The result of this election is ascribed to various causes. The true cause is ignorance of voters together with demoralization. No doubt the corrupt uso of money had much to do with it. Two years ago the landslide was to the Democratic party. The reason was this : Times were hard and the voters did not know why, but the Democrats told them it was on account of high tariff. They said, "give us a chanco" and we will knock out the McKinley tariff, and prices will go up, labor will find employment, everything will bo lovelv. Well, after waiting for two years, times remain as hard as ever, and the Republicans made the voters believe that if they had control again times would be better. If we can tide over two years more without coming to a French revolution, there will be a...

FOOD FOR THOUGHT. Items of Profundity Eminating from the Brains of Others. A wise man lauchs at a joke, but a fool goeth off on his ear. !Xo man can live without eating and no business man can prosper without advertising.

A few years ago the girls (God bless ?em) used to compete with each other in trying to make their hair look smooth. Xow they go to the other extreme and make their heads look as if they had been butting a hedge fence. The best and most zealous enthusiasts in religeon, even will tire out if compelled to sit in church and hear a sermon an hour or an hour and a half long.
