Come, Friends, Let's Reason Together.

On the first Wednesday of January, 1789, George Washington was elected President of the United States, six years after the war was over. During this period there was great cominotion and dissension. From 1776 up to this present time, thirteen years, the colonies, known as the Unted States were without authorative Civil Government which was a source of terrible weakness and embarrassment. So it is very plain to see that congress had no real authority during the war, therefore, the creation of the continental paper money was without law, without authority; yes, without civil government. The constitution under which we now live was really not established until the 30th day of April, 1789-the day Washingtion was inaugurated President of the United States.

I told you in my other article that the men who were in favor of the confederation were called federalists and the "tories" vanished with the war. From the close of the war to the formation of the new and present constitution, six years was the reign of the federalists and anti-federalists. This reign was very bitter between the two parties, the federalists contending for the adoption of the "articles of confederation" as the final principles of government and the anti-federalists opposing. As a reminescense of this political turmoil I will cite you to the duel cf Hamilton and Burr. Upon the election of Washington the new constitution was adopted, which marks the destiny of the second political party.

The public debt of the war was nearly 88 million dollars. The interest had not been paid for quite a while, for the reason that there was no money to pay it with. The continental money was discredited by the high officials, although used for money for a while among the back-woods-men, after the foundation of the present government. The outy kind of money in the country at that time was the Spanish milled dollar, brought here by the Spanlards; the Franc from Belgium, is now 20 cents in our money; Peso, from Cuba, equal to 92 cents; Crown, from Denmark, 20 cents: Mark, from German Empire, 23 cents; Rupee, from India, 25 cents: Rouble, from Russia, 79 cents; Pound Sterling 4.86, Great Britian, etc. These prices of money were gold or silver coins of the various values placed upon them in the country where they were coined.

The value I just gave was the value placed on them by our moretary system adopted in the year 1792. This is a very good place to state what we mean by money. You see, about 100 years ago our people had a great variety of what other nations called and was money when it was created. The necessity of the United States establishing a monetary system by law! There is no such a thing as money of the world. Whenever money crosses the line of the country in which it was created or coined it ceases to be money and becomes a commodity assuming a value according to the worth of the metal from which it was made.

For instance, a gold dollar of America is not a legal dollar in England. If they contained by law the same number of grains, still they would not be the same, for American goid for coinage by law must be nine-tenths fine, while English gold by the law of gland is eleven-twelfths fine. A pound of nickle costs 70 when coined by Uncle Sam makes 100 pieces which represents $5. Section 3587, United States statutes makes them money by making them legal tender to the amount of 25 centa. We have now an object lesson at hand: Silver in the silver dollar now measured by gold, is worth 46 cents, but the silver dollar in the United States is just as good as gold, and is a 100-cent dollar, because Section 3586 makes It a legal tender.

But if the money power orders Grover, Shermam, Carlisle, Reed, to repeal the above Section It will immediately be a 40- cu fat he done won as the fool people get quieted When this is done the silver money will be in the hands of the poor, who will suffer the loss. Don't you see it's not the value of the metal on which the government stamp is placed that makes money. If the government can place on it "In God We Trust" and the American Eagle, with the three letters, on 46 cents' worth of silver and it is a 100-cent dollar, can it not do the same by stamping 10 cents' worth. Now thes ilver dollar is 46 cents worth of silver and 54 cents law. The dollar or twenty nickles is 14 cents' worth of nickle and 84 cents law.

The greenback dollar is 2 cents' worth of paper and 98 cents law or flat, which means decree, or it shall be according to law. Therefore, money is a circulating medium, established Money is not value, but a tive of value. Wb any kind of money is deprived of its legal tender function it ceases to be money. One of the fundamental principles of our constitution, intended and framed for our welfare, is that the government sliall coin money and regulate the value thereof; also regulate the value of foreign bills of credit, and make all laws necessary to carry into effect the foregoing powers. One among the first acts of the na.

tional. congress was to follow out the priaciples and functions of the constitution, and in 1792 they passed the first financial act pertaining to establishing a currency and regulating the value of the dollar, by passing a law and naming the number of grains the silver dollar shall contain-3714 grains and nine-tenths fine--which was the unit of measure from that date up to 1873. The number of grains remain the same to the present time. Silver was demonet zed in 1873. Gold then.

became the unit of measure. The panic which followed then was a full sis ter to the one of 1893. I will see you later. F. A Norwegian Gladstone.

The retirement from the active politics of Great Britain by the great statesman, Gladstone, reminds me of the most eminent statesman Norway has had in this century, Johann Sverdrup, who, in many respects, may be compared to Gladstone. Sverdrup's death only two year's ago shut off a very active life. The names of the fathers of the organic law of 1814 are hallowed in the memory of the Norwegian people, and since then the little country has reared a large number of able statesmen. Johann Sverdrup overshadowed them all. In political dexterity and parliamentary skill and eloquence, he is without a peer in Norwegian history.

His breadth of view, his aggressiveness, the dash of his parliamentary tactics, his fiery eloquence and his personal magnetism were so many revelatiors to the stolid, sedate members of the congress. This was something new to them. In this new light, the disorganized and more or less antagonistic Liberal elements of the various provinces blended into one harmonious body. Sverdrup's political creed became the program and he, himself, the leader of a Liberal party, whose main element of strength was the farmers of the coun try. His parliamentary campaign of thirty odd years was a succession of hard contested battles, beginning with a series of defeats and ending with an unbroken chain of victories.

During all these years Sverdrup has been the foremost champion of the Liberal party, the powerful agent of every great reform that has been wrought in Norway, embracing every phase of national life. He framed the constitutional liberty and independenc of Norway, a tender plant exposed to the chilly blasts of early spring. When lie breathed his last breath the noonday sun of full national independence and robust constitutional liberty met the parting light of his large brilliant eyes. His life work, summed I up in a brief sentence, is to have made the tion of Norway a living reality. May our young; powerful, hopeful, evergrowing People's party in the near future get many such undaunted geniuses to champion the cause of everlasting freedom from the chains of the money power, and the outcome of the combat cannot be doubted.

FINCH, 2133 P. O. Illuuewell. The late war le over, but the revolution le not. Repent and vote against plutocracy.

The buoyancy of the western spirit bids us hope and push. White slavery makes a blacker cloud than did black slavery. Knowledge without proper feeling is a dangerous advantage. Your cross may be converted into a crowbar if you join the people. Blessed is he that expects nothingfor Grover and his congress will provide that.

The worst first. Wipe out the money monopoly nuisance, then turn to lesser evils. You might not have been so green with envy had you not been so green in ignorance. The recording angel will need a sixinch brush to charge up the accouats of U. S.

congressmen. U. S. means us, you and common, plain, plug American people; as well as gilded anglo-maniacs. If you don't like the laws, why don't you cast your vote for legislators who will change them? Gamblers in "Stocks and Bonds" steal the stock of the farmer and lock the laborer in the 1 bonds of slavery.

It now transpires that the "'strongest man in the party" when applied to Cleveland has reference to the smell. Stand up for 'Kansas quartette of republican aspirants for governor will sing at the funerat of the party. True religion is the greatest, gran est force in the world for reform. This has no reference to church creeds. Coxey's army is: greeted with an ovation at every town.

more war than they want. The long and short of the county editorial association is Campbell and Cline. The Mail editor can't be: measured except by trigonometry. We may not be you will at least concede us the possession of instinct, and even that shows us the injustice of idleness eating the bread of labor. One hundred and sixty-seven men, twenty of them being heads of famflies, started April 2nd on the march to Washington from Los Angeles, California.

They are under command of Gen. Vinette. If Coxey's army would only disband congress might spend three peaceable years discussing the tariff. It is a pity to disturb the deliberations of the society of profound philosophers of tariff. This great nation is only an aggregation of men, with every one and all of whom you have equal rights.

Are you using your individual rights--or are you lending them to the self constituted besses of society? We are but a handful of people on earth, and must soou go hence; over there we'll meet countless millions of strangers. Let us make friends before we go that we may not be lonesome at the end of the journey. We have regarded Dun's weekly business review and the astrological tables of Raphael and Zadkiel as the greatest fakes of the age, but C. Wood Davis' "wheat conditions of the world" are holding them Chief. The gleeful giggle of the Republican editors is bubbling over as usual.

They have discovered a new schemethe same one they used last yearnominating candidates for the Populists. Let them have all the fun they can -poor simpletons, they do little good or harm. The Republicans boast of winning in the late city elections. There is where all their strength lies, in the cities and towns--while the forces of the People's Party are found at work on the farms in the great labor of feeding the loungers of the social swim. The populists put up no tickets in city elections--and before the vote there was not a straight partisan ticket in any of the towns.

The fact that nobody wants a town office, and that many were placed on "citizens" tickets against their will and elected, is announced as another great Republican victory. The Re publicans stand ready to claim what nobody else wante, as well as thing that is worthless. Just until you hear the Populist Mersell lee.
