What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Un- less Great Britain takes her robber bands off our poor little neighbor Venezuela we should send about a million of men and every ship in the navy down there, and advertise to her that piracy and freebootiog are out of date on American ;Oil. This is Mr. Cleveland's chance to make himself solid with all pat otic Americans. - • Returning Prosperity. Money is a measure of values and a medium of exchange. Its free and untrammelled circulation through the channels of trade means business4ctivity and pros- perity. To check its flow means business stagnation, panics, bank- ruptcy and poverty. Under our • present financial system which - is the creation of democrats and republicans alike, our circulating . medium is con- trolled by a monied.. ‚aristocracy. This aristocracy has its thumb on the pulse of public opinion; it notes every symptom of unrest and discontent that agitates the public mind. Entrenched behind a sub- servient administration, with no general elections nigh, it little notes nor long remembers the wail of distress that goes up upon the tightening Of its purse strings. But with the near approach of a • presidential campaign upon an issue involving, as it will, its tenure of power, and noting —the rapid progress of the campaign of education, it sees defeat and loss of power ahead, unless the public mind is diverted from the study of finance. To accomplish this it is loosening its purse strings and allowing the life blood of prosper- ity to flow through the arteries of trade. It reasons well. A prosper- ous is.ople are a contented people. The busy • man ceases to study al questions. The press dia - 1 .4 noting business improve. 'eIS but the prelude to the beginning of a busy and apparently prosperous era, which will be in full blast during the campaign of '96. lleweratic ne\ ,papers 'v ho believe in, and are laboring for the cause of free silver, know this to be true. So also do the Republican newspapers. It is their duty to undeceive the people. They know that the present revival of business is but the apparent convalescing of a very Sick patient > and that if the nionied. aristocracy is again en- trenched -in power, the relapse which will surely follow will be ten times more distressing than the first sickness. Both the old parties are dominated and con- trolled by this monied aristocracy. If either champion the cause of the people, of free silver, of peace and prosperity, it must be under the guidance of new leaders, men whose honesty and integrity can- not be impeached and who are pledged to carry out every provision of the platform upon which they are elected. The party which espouses this cause under such leadership is entitled to the súpport of every individual who professes friendship for free silver, and of every newspaper, lemocratic or republican, which is honest in its advocacy and place principle above party. 'A. Prophesy. If a government contracted debt with a certain amount of money in circu- lation, and then contracted the money volume before the debt was paid, it is the meet heinous crime that the govern- ment could commit against the people. —Abraham Lincoln. The foresight and wisdom of Lincoln have never been contro- verted. Born in the humble walks of life, reared in poverty and schooled in adversity, he rose from his lowly environments by the force of his own genius. Loving his country he sympa- thized with his countrymen stagger- ing under the weight of oppression. His experience taught him that the owners of wealth could not be depended upon in the time of danger and that the people must be protected egainst their machina- tions in time:of peace. President at a time when the country was torn and disrupted by a bloody war, he learned the dia— lOyality and treachery of capital. He saw it disappear from the channels ; of trade and go into hiding. It turned a deaf ear to the appeals of the government for_aiFI. It sought a place of safety and hid its putrid carcass under the mantle of treason. The government bankrupt and without credit, torn and distracted by internal strife, war threatened from witlionit, found its only re- source in its organic principle, and inherent right to create money. Millions of dollars were issued based upon the integrity of a nation without promise of redemption, fiat pure and simple. Made a legal tender for the payments of debts, it paid debts contracted prior to its issue; it paid taxes; it paid the soldier, who faced the fate of battle, his meagher pittance. The government's obligations were paid in it until an enormous volume was put in circulation.. Seeing the possibility of disaster from over inflation, its issue was curtailed, and bonds payable in the lawful money of the United States offered for sale. Those owners of gold who would not succor the government in her hour of peril, now saw an opportunity to trade on her misfortune and profit by her adversity. They exchanged their gold for greenbacks at fifty cents 8n the dollar, and with the greenbacks bought her bonds. Lincoln was not slow to penetrate their motive& and in his wisdom he saw that with the advent of peace and the rehabilitation of hie country, the possibility of schem- ing, dishonest and designing men gaining place and power in the legislative and executive branches of the government, and at the be - best of greedy and rapacious bond- hithlers still their birthright for a 'eel's of pottage, and for thirty pieces of silver betray their fellow men into bondage, and seeing this he uttered the ercifds above as a note of warning—a prophesy. To know how well he under- stood the wickedness of wealth, its greed for power and its probable future course, is but to read the history of our financial legislation since the close of the civil war. The first step towards that which he foresaw and proclaimed a \most heinous crime\ was taken when the government bonds, made pay- able in \lawful money\ were re- funded and the new issue made to read \payable in coin.\ The next and final step was the act of 1873 demonetizing silver, leaving gold the only legal coin with which these bonds could be paid. Thus was the consuMation of the \moat heinous crime\ that blackens a page of our national history made complete. Its pelpetrators trampled under foot one of the fundamental _prin- ciples of our constitution, over- rode law and perverted justice. That cardinal principle of our constitution whiCh recites that all men are by nature created free and equal, is deeply implanted in the human breast. Our people saw and felt the injustice and crime of chattel slavery and arose in their might and overthrew it. That same people have been chaf- ing under a yoke of bondage More servile and far reaching than chattel- slavery and are rapidly learning its source, cause and effect. They are beginning to understand that to restore silver to its proper place as a money, to the 'position it occupied at the time , the 'burden of debt under which they are groaning was created, is but to undo a crime. Is to lead them from the desert sands of poverty and distress into green pastures of peace and plenty. The American, a weekly paper published át Philadelphia, Pa., by Wharton Barker, should be read by every intelligent citizen of the United States. Its editor is a staunch friend of silver, and one of the ablest advocates of bimetallism in the world. Price only $2 per annum. We should like to seethe American reach the fireside, not only of every family in Montana, but throughout the Union as well, and a perusal of its pages would lead up to a better understanding of the money question—along the lines of legs politics and more sense. into Line. The democrats of Miseouri met in convention at Pertle Springs on the 6th inst. and turned tbe con- vention into a free silver meeting with scarcely • dissenting voice. A resolution calling for the free and unlimited coinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1 was passed with a whoop -hurrah. Men were select- ed to nominate delegates favorable to silver to the national democratic convention of 1896. That Missouri will attend the itational convention in '96 bearing the banner of \Free Silver\ there is now no doubt. The Texas state deiltitintIL in vention, being in aession at th, same time, sent greetings to their brethern in Missouri, pledging the democratic party of Texas to \true bimetallic, coinrig') and against single gold standard.\ All of this in spite of the ominous scowl that is spreading itself over the obese jaw of Cleveland, the oratorical display of Hoke Smith and the \finished\ gr. - efforts of letter writer Morton. If the sentiment expressed at the! c i a't various democratic conventions , Two hundred years ago last July the Bank of England started on a basis of a government debt to it of $5,000,000. The debt the govern ment now owes the bank is $55,- 000,000. Julies Twiford, 1)KAI,Elt IN Furniture, Bar Fi‘tures and Stoves, Ore Sacks and Tents, HARNESS, ETC.
