Iii ISP; .John Dull demonetized silver,
and yet. from that time to 187:1, the
parity of the two metals was not affect-
ed. We did not need him then, we do
not need him now; still we have hun-
dreds ot American born citizens, who
are now leading the two old parties,
who tell us that the only salvation for
fair Columbia, financially—is foi her to
marry that old tub of guts— John Uull.

lion.and don't propose to express an

That old two laced, ever double
Dan Vorhees is straight out now for
silver. lithe people of Indiana allow
fhat old hypocrite to fool them again,
alter liis last summer* and winter’s
acrobatic tumbling, the devil would lie
loo good to represent them.
Oil, Columbia! once the gem of the
ocean. The boasted land of the
free and the home of the brave. Thou
hast lost, the breed of noble broods that
made thee great. Pertldy. treason,
corruption, greed anti avarice me fes-
tering thy great heart away to ’’dust
and damned oblivion.
Ot n domestic trade is Oil per cent,
and our foreign trade is 4 per cent of
the whole, and yet the traitors whom
the American people have intrusted to
make and to administer their laws
have made the people believe that their
nation—the richest on earth in resour-
ces—could not meet this $4.00 out of
$100.00 unless they aped the money
system of the nation that gets the most
ot the 4 per cent.
Can the American people afford to
jeopardise their liberties and the life of
their nation in the hands oJ men who
are so void of moral courage, and man-
ly independence, that they will hide
themselves behind the slightest sub
terfuge to keep from expressing au
opion on questions that are shaking
the political world from center to cir
cumferenee? Witness the man whom
the American people once thought was
brainy enough to wear Ins grand-pa’s
hat, pleading too much law business to
take time to give bis opinion on
ilnance; and Tom Heed biding out in
tlie woods ot Maine to keep away from
reporters. In ttie absence of manhood
and courage, we would suggest an ap-
plication of porous plaster to draw
Think ot all the little islands and
peninsulas around her making luces at
great Columbia, the land that has no
lights that England is hound to re-
ipect- -a nation of political cowards,
where the upper ten have made bond
Olives of the lower millions, and the
thumps still believe tliev are free men.

Tin; elans of Wall street, and their
echoes throughout the land, harp con-
tinually about the interests ot the pro-
ducer and of the industrial man. These
fellows never produce anything under
heavens but burthensoine debts and
robbery corners; were never industrious
in their lives, except in watering stocks,
having up law-makers uml putting up
jobs to defraud the great body of the
people. They talk about “honest”
money who were never honest in any
tiling. As for the “bull” and “bear”
dealei.s, who grow rich off the margi-
nal profits of wind, often manipulating
fortunes in a day on puts, calls, options,
and the like, they are so many vam-
pires and leeches gorging themselves
on tlie sweat of toil and tlie blood ot
tlie laborer. They produce nothing,
create m tiling, forward nothing, and
tlie world of legitimate business would
be far more prosperous, and the results
of labor manifold greater if these, and
all their aiders and cuckoo abettors,
were kicked into the sea.—Wichita

Victory and glory has been brought by
bloated egotism on one hand, and cow-
ardly indulgence on the other.
