Was mnoTon Feb. Hon J. B. Clarkson
chairman of the republican national commit-
tee: My Hear Bin lam not a candidate for

port I owe sincere thanks and sm most grateful
for tbelr confidence. They will I am sure
make earnest effort In the approaching contest
which Is rendered especially Important by
reason ot the Industrial and Dnanclal policies
of the government being at stake. The popolar
decision on these Issues Is of great moment and
will be of far reaching consequence. Very sin-

ment. So far as tho republicans are
concerned it may bo said without
fear of contradiction that they have
lost their strongest man. By all odds
Mr. Blaine was their most available
leader. As to the doinTnU their
shrewdest opponent has retired from
tbo field. Tbey havo a large number of
men who can certainly win against
Harrison and who ought to bo able to
win against Blaine. It they handlo
their forces with skill and enter tho
contest with a strong western man It
will to their own fnult if they fail to
carry the day for tho great bulk of the
American pcoplo in all sections ot tha
country aro with them."
The Trlbuno says:
"Mr. Blaino tells tho chairman of tho
republican national commltteo and
through him the party and tlio country
that ho Is not a candidate for the presi-
dency nnd that nls name will not go
beforo tho Minneapolis convention.
This formal announcement will canse
sorrow and disappointment to thou-
sands of republicans and there
Is no reason for dlssombling that
fact. No other living American has
Inspired such ardent devotion and
upon no other havo so many
Americans longed to confor tho great-
est distinction within their gift That
Is a simple and obvious truth which
nobody doubts and which disparages
nobody The certainty that tho fore-
most citizen of tho country will not ba
the next president of tho United
States and the presumption that ho
will never occupy that great office
cannot fall to nfillct a multi-
tude ot his fellow citizens with
a keen sense ot personal grief. What
wo havo said already should bo re-
peated horo that Mr. Blaine has had a
perfect right to let his name be used In
connection with the presidency while
holding tho office ot secretary of ztate
and nobody has pretended to donbt his
right except in tho silly hope of pro-
ducing discord in the republican party.
Gen. Harrison and Mr. Blaino had no
misunderstanding on tbatsubjoct."

Washington Fob. 8. Gen. Bussoy
assistant secretary of tbo interior has
been beforo tho senate commltteo on
pensions and supported tho argument
recently mada by Wallace Foster of
Indianapolis In favor ot Increasing the
pension for total deafness to $72 per
month. The general made a statement
that startled tbo members when he
said he had before him fifty appeals
from widows whoso husbands had
been killed by being run ovor by cars
or otherwise being tptally deaf. A
half drunken or careless driver sees a
man In front and presuming that ho
will get out of tho way drives on and
an unfortunate Is klllo J. Tho mortal-
ity nmong totally deaf pensioners
Gen. Bussoy said. Is from ten to twenty
times as great as among other classes.
As to tha proportionate rate to be paid
for less than total deafness the general
said It was difficult to adjust that Se-
vere deafness In one ear or alight deaf-
ness in both Is fairly pensioned. In
comparison with other claimants as
the law now stands.

The debt-burdened farmer the poverty-stricken

producers of wealth nor tho legitimate
business classes who render usofnl
service by Its exchange havo any con-
trolling power over tho machinery by
which all exehanges are effected lly
law and custom money Is tho medium
by which nil dobts mast bs paid on the
demand of tho creditor. Tho prlco of
products Is expressed in tho language
of money and when products chango
hands money Is tho consideration.
Hence money is tho chief fot-tor In tho
mechanism of exchange and money Is
controlled by the favored few who by
law are enabled to dictate tho manner
ot It distribution.
This Icgnllzed monopoly of money
Is cqvlvalent to n monopoly of all that
money will purchase. The pcoplo
create wealth by labor but money can
only be created by law and the few
who havo secured a monopoly of
money also control tho law makers
elected by tho voto of tho people This
Imperial power of money controls tbo
press tho politician nnd oven tho pul
pit and ot lui command false Ideas aro
disseminated among tho people. Tt?
press and the politicians raise fatso i-
sues and seek to keep tbo people
divided into warring factions concern-
ing matters which havo but littlo or no
bearing upon their social or financial
condition wbllo from tho pulpit they
are taught to owe no man anything; to
pay all their obligations to tho utmost
farthing according to tho strict letter
of tho contract
All agreements to pay aro agree-
ments to pay money while tho mosses
u the peoplo hove nothing to pay with
' jt tho products ot their labor. Or-
f anlzed wealth is the creditor and or-
anlzcd wealth controls tho legal me-
dium by which debts mutt be paid. To
pay the debt would stop the Interest
and cut oil the Incomo ot the creditor
and such a creditor as this imperial
money power which Is the product of
usury In Its varied forms will not per-
mit thts. Hence tho peoplo aro com-
pelled to compromise turn over tho
products of their labor at a price fixed
by tho creditor pay tho interest ex-
tend tho mortgsge and in caso ot a de-
ficiency negottato a now loan and
thus Increase the burden of debt
ThU imperial power of money stands
between the producer and consumer
and exacts a tribute from each. With
its control over the "medium by which
debts must be paid andoxchanges effect-
ed It Is practically both the buyer
and the seller of tho products of labor
and hanco has but littlo uso for money.
Tbo largo operator.! who constitute the
imperialism of wealth effect all settle-
ments through banks and clearing
houses where one account cancels
nnother requiring only a very small
percentage of monoy to pay balances
and this may tako tho form ot a check
secured perhaps by a' Kansas mort-
gage. Tho monoy thus savod by
minimizing the demand for It la loaned
to producers and to those who pur-
chase their products and furnish tbelr
supplies. In every exchange effected
by this borrowed monoy tho Interest
Is added to tho product that is sold and
deducted from tho prodi'C that Is pur-
chased tbvs heaping usury upon usury
to bo paid by tho clicsumors. Under
tills system it Is only the farmers
waga workers and retail dealers who
havo any pressing need for monoy and
the largo operators who control tbo
supply seo to It that they are not able
to get the use ot It without htgh rates
ot interest secured by cut-throat mort-
gages on property.
It is thus that tho producers of all
wealth who aro also the great mass ot
the consumers havo become the great
debtor class ot tho country while tho
fow who control tho medium by which
dobts are paid constitute tbo creditor
class. The debtor class as a producer
if wealth pays interest to tho creditor
and as a consumer. It pays profits to
tlio same class. Thus this Imperial
power ot money robs the peoplo accord-
ing to law and has established a despot-
Ism In tha name ot liberty more power-
ful than any political despotism that
has ever been established on earth. It
absorbs all tho wealth created by tbo
people as Interest profits etc. and Is
continually re-lnvtstlng its-accumulations
in Interest-bearing securities up-
on which tho people must pay interest
Tho mora wealth that Is created by the
people the mora this tnsatlablo credi-
tor Is enabled to absorb and tho more
effectually is it enabled to oppress the
debtor without violating a single law
of tho state or nation and la strict ac-
cordance with tha popular code of busi-
ness morals which has been established
among men by the false teachings of a
According to law and custom all
property posseln a monoy value la
regarded as entitled to t percentage ot
Increase equal to the legal Interest that
would bo allowed for the use ot tho
money that It would sell for In the
market Even many reformers recog-
nize this as a correct principle and In
counting the cost ot any Interprlse add
Interest on tho investment as some-
thing that justly belongs to tha invest-
or outsldo of a full compensation for
all the services rendered to society to-
gether with cost of repairs and loBur-
atico against loss. Such calculations are
presented with a simplicity that would
tra amusing to an acute reasoner wero
lt'not tor tbo serious nature ot the error
to which thoy glvo countenance. By
thVs rulo a railroad for Instance that
co.'t $100000000 to construct would bo
jurtly entitled to legal Interest onSIOO.-
OOOtOOO Iq addition to full and equitable
compensation for all the service ren
dered to the people. It thus becomes
lu enect a permanent Interest-bearing
debt The same principle applies to
any manufacturing ostabllshmeut fac-
tory mine electrto light plaqt or other
enterprise. ThU principle regarded as
legitimate and just by so many It it
could be universally applied would
mako all ;ii&t;d wealth In effect an
Interest-bearing debt against society.
This false principle Is tha keystone to
our false economlo system which U
responsible for nearly all there U of
poverty with all its attendant con se-
quences ot ignoranco vice and crime.
In the very nature ot things this
principle which recognizes tho right
ot tho Investor to legal Interest on the

penratlon for the service reudercd to
society eanuot be generally applied.

fanner on capitalistic Investment.
Undor tho conditions established by
tho application of this principle
the wealth producing classes rira
payers of interest overy time)
they purchoso a commodity or sell a
product In the market. They cannot
avoid paying interest by keeping out
of debt. Tha business of tho country
Is conducted on n credit basis and in-
terest on tho monoy Invested is added
to every commodity that is offered for
sate after It leaves tho hands of tha
producer who pays Interest upon the
price of tha product ho sells in tho
shapo of a discount. The orily way by
which tho producer can avoid tho pay
ment of intcrott is to pluco the eUtiro
business of tho country on a cash basis
and as soon as this Is dono no debt
will bo created and no interest will bo
required. Tho establishment of a cash
basis abolishes usury.
There is bnt ono method by which
this can bo accomplished and that Is
for the pcoplo to nssnmo absolute con-
trol of tho Issuo and distribution of tho
medium by which debts are paid and
wealth exchanged. This could easily
bo accomplished by tho co-operation of
a majority of tho pcoplo nt the ballot
box with a vlow to tho establishment
of a lobt-paylng system of finance-
Such a system would rcqulto the
nationalization of the entire business
of banking providing safety for de-
posits and loaning monoy to tho people
upon such securitlot as tbo banks now
relIre at Just enough to defray ex.
SoiCflthtng of this kind will no doubt
bo tho culmination of tho present de-
mand for financial reform. ThU would
be in effect a system of banking
products instead of bonds mortgages
nnd other evidences ot debt Tbo
monoy Issued on these products would
practically bo sub-treasury notes se-
cured by all tho wealth ot tho country
and redeemable la nny nnd all kinds at
wealth at Its market value. This am-
ple security would of Itself give to
such a currency a stah'.o value as a
medium of exchange. All that tho
government could add to tho potency
of such a medium based on products
that tho world could not afford to
bo deprived of would bo to mako
It a legal tender for debt But
with tho establishment of such a
system tho business of tbo country
would bo placed on a canh basts dobts
would not bo created and tho legal
tender feature would lose much ot Its
potential powers. Exctiartre would bo
organized and actual value? repre-
sented by certificates based thoroon
would bo tho real circulating medium.
Tho possession ot such certificates
would bo legal evldenco of service ren-
dered to society to bo paid In service
ot equal value by other members ot so-
ciety. Such a system ot controlling
money In the Interest of all who render
useful service to socloty would bo tho
first step toward tho establishment of
tbo principle of equivalent for equiva-
lent and service for service which U
tho basU ot all equitable exchange.
