Every effort should be put forth to inereace the pros-
neritv of Prague- The greater head quarters tor farmers
that can be made at Prague the more farmers will come to
Prague and the more farmers the more norny spent In our
town. They should be encouraged and uot discouraged. «-
cause the trade of this city is purely coantry trade and if tha
• vintrv trade should concentrate somewhere else, in the event
Ta "ew Sid 1. wuld ruin on, ,ow„. LoU would drop
no halt and all city values would depreciate. So let us < "

t field Farmers have a right to enter into any business
chat any other man has a right to. If they would stand to-
* r ahev would be the strongest organization on the globe
!ol.ticallv and financially. They work twice as mar, work-
r ■ u. the manufacturers, have twice as much invested. The
urn,era worn, about eleven million worKers, the manufactur
rs work less than tive and a half millions- The aggregate
,ortli of the manufacturers product last year was seventeen
■illion dollars. The aggregate worth of farm products was
, ven billion With fourteen billion dollars invested a-

.5cls 0n the dollar for the farmers investment, and $1.3
"ain on the dollar'for the manufacturers,
Whv this great discrepancy, simply because one is or-
'anized and the other is not, one is capitalized the other is not
]a says what the price shall be on nails, oarbed wire, a mow
r or a wagon, and makes the world pay it- Being orgauiZed
i • -i factor in commerce, therefore clasps hands with the
L mtv oower, It has a big political party behind it that made
orotective tarifl by which the United States is made a re-
' id market for the benefit of manufacturers at the ex-
^nse oftrmers. w ho are forced to sell in the worlds marke
nd buy in this restricted marKet- The manufacturer is a
taster', the farmer is a beggar, one is a price settler, the
£ other is a yr.ee beggai, oue is a political power and a ooss,
ne other is afraid to becomo a political power and prefers to
L a servant and a beggar. One names the man to vote for
tte other votes for the man that is named. Too often a law-
_ who writes the law for the money, according to the otner
■Hows, Wish while the farmer d >t't even get a wish. Some
Aill sit around and decry and discredit his brother such
creatures are not meu.
The products of the farmilast year was worth seven
oillion dollars, about twice as much money as there is in all
ne United States, counting all in the U. b. Treasury, in all
ie banks and all owned by all the people Yes, the fields
' t vear produced about six times as much as all the gold
nines of the entire world, and yet these people register low-
t in government, commercially and politically. Can t set a
rice on a rooster or a crowing hen. can't elect a county of-
cer ouly by dictation of the other fellow. Is it not strange.'
We read that the Chinese was whipped in every battle
til Gen. Gordon organized them and then they won ever)
tie. Yes, it is all in organization. The farmers could, u
"ti, organized, elect every official, revise every statute
ud rewrite every constitution, set the price on every bush,
,i Krain and hoof of live stock- Yes, it is strange that such u
,oJver will persist in being a servant power.
Tne New YorK. Herald has sent letters to one hundred
md sixty-two United States Senators and congressmen ask-
- their opinion regarding the disposition of the I'hilipine*
„d tour-fifths favored the sale of the Islands at once, in jus-
",ce to the United States and the Philipines- We never did
'elieve m this government sustaining wards in the far east at
u.-h expense. H is not in harmony with the traditions ol
'ur government not in harmony with the ideas of Him win
n'l "Do unto others as you would have others do unto us. '
Cnd it is undemocratic, unrepublican, unamerican and unjust.
'• t equal rights, but a usurpation and only in line with im-
Jnalisui, which is passing 9ut. It is taxing our people for
lions and millions mostly for mil tary splendor. Such pre-
jec dings has characterized the decay and downfall of nations
tn tne past-
The Indian Territory counties are laid out and have e-
lected a set of officers and not a dollar to pay for county gov-
srn.nent so it will be bonds to a fare yon well, County of
icials will have to be paid, bridges puilt and but little deeded
'ami mostly Indian allotments. There is burden of taxes
bead for them. Come atul buv a farm m Oklahoma. Regia
1, re schools, churches, court-houses, bridties and every
iu-i.'it, of organized !ife is at hand.
