MUCH NEEDED REFORM.
WrUitn for tht QnHer.
We bostit of lieinn reformers. B
r here is our reform in matters of finance
ir irsde? Money has been the concern
c? nations to a greater or lesser extent
I r site past, yet the nations seem
i powerless or unwilling to control its
e, and it is claimed, can do nothlnjr
the matter, but conform to the uags
J customs ol the people. It is time
wnments should serve the people,
d them on to better conditions
linlly, commercially and 6nancially.
it it should be the people in every
Unco, and not the few, as in these
luke the history of the world today in
i matter of money, and we find that
lawa are so shaped that the rich
y oppress the poor, and might rule
)r right. And, as a consequence,
ney flows Into the coffers of the few,
Ihe detriment of the many. Hence.
;ry of distress arises fr oi everv peo-
in the enligntened world. This con
loo of affairs will not last much
ger when e hear volcanic rumblings
leath the earth's surface, we know an
ption is threatened, and unless the
:ea underneath find relief, the conse
nces are destruction. Statesmen
mid beware of how they act in these
Iters, and look to the welfare of the
molest citizen with equal zeal, as to

and competition out of use " would be
detrimenUl to the prosperity of the
iwinntrv. la a false claim. ' It IS true
it would be injurious to those making a
livinn that way. and their name is legion.
But the sooner that result comes around
tha better for all mankind. For then
strict and merited Justice would step in
as tht rule of support, and men would
only get. wlirt they earned, and would

I am full Dursuaded that if specula
tion and competition were condemned
aa criminal sets today, and made pucish
able by law, there are many men who
would not know how to make the nrsi
turn in aid of their own support. They
have lived so Ions by the sweat of others
brows, it would go bard with them to
make the needed and useful change.
But they should suffer the consequence
nntil r.Hflved hv rerjentsnce. Far
better that suffering should fall on men
of idleness than on men of toil .
Speculation is rampant In most every
part of our country , but more so at
Washington perhaps than anywhere
else. Our lawa are so shaped that
throush the banking and bond system
of finances, a few men may control the
country's iiurrency, and these men do
not always use scrupulous care to deal
iustlv with the people's money. They
are allowed to speculate in every con
poivahlfl uuv. and then baste to use
this liberality to our detriment.
Speculation and competition in all
commercial affairs should cease today
and all Rood men In every nation should
use their efforts In that direction, nor
should they forget the prohibition of the
sale and use noeless and vitiating articles
of trade. There are many things sold
over our counters today of no material
benefit to any man. In such cases, the
buyer injures himself and family
financially, a' thing he h: no moral
right to do, nor should he have a legal
right to do so, while the seller aids and
abets this injury, and takes that in
exchange for which be renders an
unequal equivalent. 1
If we ever expect universal justice to
reign supreme among us, why not begin
today the real work to bring It about,
and cease contriving at frauds and cus
toms which only work injury continu
ously. The millennium will never come
to us until we, by our effoits, prepare
the way for It.

take liver remedy. It is a sluggish or
diseased liver that impairs digestion
and causes constipation, when the waste
that should be carried off remains in
the body and poisons the whole system.
That dull, heavy feeling is due to a
torpid liver. Bilioasneas, Headache,
Malaria and Indigestion are all liver

occasional dose of Simmons Liver Reg
