known, but ever since I was at your sanitarium
I have been getting stronger, until now 1 weigh

you for treatment. Respectfully yours,
Lincoln,Neb. MRS. HERMAN SCHURR.
Dear Sir:—I am thankful to you for your
skillful treatment of my case. 1 always knew I
needed a surgical operation but the doctors told
me I would be alright, but 1 have never been

operation. Kindly remember me to Mrs. Coe
and the nurses. Sincerely yours.

Dr. C. M. Coe, Kansas City, Mo.:
Dear Sir:—I will write a few lines in regard
to Alfred's foot. It seems to be perfectly sound;
we never think of it only when we see the scar.

IT S COMING.
Divorcing the People's Business From
A movement is on foot, headed by
Hanna and seconded by all the Han-
naite journals in the country, to "di-
vorce the government from the peo-
ple's business permanently, by re-
moving the money question forever
from polities'' and thus ''place our
monetary system on an absolutely
safe and enduring foundation!" With
this done the silver people will be
rendered harmless and this nation
will enter upon a career of prosperi-
ty and the accumulation'of wealth
hitherto unequalled in our history!
This kind of prosperity was to fol-
low McKinley's election; then it ivas
to be ushered in by the Dingley tariff:
but it ha8 not materialized yet.
The leaders of the goldites, looking
forward to, and fearing the results of
the next presidential election, wish to
secure such legislation by the present
congre ss as shall make it impossible,
is they imagine, for any party to
change our monetary system from
gold monometallism to a bimetallic
standard. They are not willing that
this question shall be submitted a
second time to the people, to be de-
cided bv their ballots. Before the
people can express themselves
this subject again at the polls, in the
light of added knowledge and of tour
years more of experience, the mana-
gers of the republican party are de-
termined to "settle the matter per-
manently" by congressional action.
The idea of divorcing the govern
ment from the people's business
Why? For a long time the govern-
ment has been giving attention to
the business of the classes. What
meant all those lobbyists at Wash
ington, all these representatives of
corporations and monopolies, all
those wishing to secure privileges and
favors under the name of protection?
Perhaps the leaders under Hanna
wish, being monopolists, to monopo'
lizeall governmental aid \n tlielr be
half. They have already indicated
by their acts that they do not recog-
nize the people as having any rights
which they are bound to respect.
Whatever congress may do to de-
feat the people's will, the people's
will will be asserted at the polls, and
when it is there is no danger that
any obstructive measures which may
be adopted now. will prevent such
action as shall be necessary to five
