i; . s-iifTfksy .-. vsLT' HEW TO THE LINE. YOIi. V. WHALING SLAVES. Circumstantial evidence, strong in proof as Holy Writ, show that a design was formed by one man a century ago to control the money of the world. His policy he enjoined upon his descendants: "Stand together as one House, pursue this course without deviation and with utmost secrecy and success is -certain." A happy chance had given to him control of a vast sum In gold. Already a rich man his iron honesty gave him almost unlimited credit Trusts were safe in his hands and he soon had the confidence of monarchs and statesmen. Knowing that because of wars and revolutions and insurrections, gold was regarded as the only safe representative of money, the first object of his policy was to control the gold stock of the world. Not long before his time the nations of Europe 'had begun to borrow money and give national bonds as evidence and security for the debt Prior to that extraordinary revenues were raised by forced loans an...

His Majesty or President McKinlcy elaborated on, .more subjects than It Is within our power to refer to. Some of them are unimportant and the chances are that the mass of his countrymen will not find the time nor take the trouble to read it in its entlrity, neither will they be any wiser since Its transmission to Congress. The first subject according to our "notion, which the President deals with or touches upon which Is worthy of noting, Is "Trusts" and one is almost led to doubt his sincerity in reference to those gigantic blood-sucking institutions which have so enormously profited under the fostering care and aid of devine providence and the party w...

m m 'SATURDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1899. a " CHIP. (Continued from page L) intellectual feast to him to read the articles which it contains" We can now send mail matter In the United States for from one-third to one-tenth of what it cost twenty years ago. What has caused the redaction? The answer Is, the government owns the postal service and charges only enough to pay actual expenses. Twenty years ago we paid five cents for a street car ride and we pay the same today. Why have we no reduction in street car fares? The reason is, tho street cars are owned by private companies and they charge as much as the public will stand. Ex. Col. W. T. Dowdall, who was slinging the editorial pen when many of the present scribes were serving as office devils, has purchased "Carter's Monthly," which is a high grade literary magazine, published In the Rand McNaliy building, this city.
