by using bread made
from, our whole whc'at
flour. It is made from
the whole wheat berry
except the out side hull,
or bran, which is a woody
substance, irritating and
indigestible. Bread made
from this flour s not so
white as that made from
the pale white roller flour,
but it is far superior for
food as it contains all the,
gluten, germ, and oily
matter of the wheat and
is much sweeter than
graham or any other
bread not sweetened

To the Democratic County Central Com- -mittee
of Clackamas couniy, Oregon :
There is no doubt that tlie i-sne ou
which te approaching campaign will bo,
fought is that of the unlimited free coin
age of silver at the ratio of 16 lo 1, with
the provision that silver be mule a legal
tender in all amounts fur all debt, both,
public and private.
The effect of such a measure, I sincere
ly believe, would be to our country mo6t
disaxtrous. There ean be no reasonulI '
doubt that it would moan, first, tepudia
tiou to a considerable extent ; sho nd, ren
dering uncertain many contracts now ex
istent, and that shall he made during a v
considerable period, which is ( greater
evil than the making of inequiuliln hut
certain contracts; third, a eon rartion in
the amount of our coin inevitably it v ex
portation and hoarding of all void and by
debasement of the balance; fourth, silver
niononie alism ; fifth, such a condition in
our country, which will affect the poorer
class most severely, a like of whirli Iuih
never been experienced during tlie life of
this republic; sixth, the bartering in our
coins and the metals that shall constitute
them by the " plutocrats," of whom the
poorer of us seem reasonably fearful, to
their advancement and at th exen ,

Having boon elected by tho county
central committee as its chairman
wish to take this means to express my
grcatful appreciation of the distinguished"
honor and heroby do assure thee Jmmittco -
and the people generally hearty interest
in the cause of bimetallism. While the
democratic organization is seperato and -distinct
from that of the peoples party,
thore is a common interest to bu sub
served in secruing a rousing majority
in this county for the Hryan and Watson
electors and the two committees should
co-operate in the use of all honorable
means to that end.
At the outset, while I am not mindful .
of the few desertions from the democratic
ranks of those closely related to banks
and corporation enterprises I am, ,
gratified to note that the accessions to
ourstandered will more than compensate
tho losses and from present indications
the vote in this county in November wIT"
not fall short if it does not greatly excep t
the combined vote of the democrats an T '
populists in June last.
The campaign has so far- progressed un
to indicate that the battlo will be fierce
and eventful. The forces are already in
the field ; on one side are arranged tin
capitalists, the corporate wealthy thx
aristocracy and a subsidised press, whila
on the other are the produce., thewat't
earners, the farmers and the plain people,
who believe in equal rights. .
The combat will tie between the masses
and the classes. The rotatory of organ
ised wealth advances the cause of. the
one while tlie consciousness of a just
cause impresses the other. I cannot.
help bat feel that the destiny of orr
democratic form of government is de
pendent upon the coming election and a--failure
upon the part of the people now
to assert their independence may mean
future submission to the greatest ! al '
tyrants, the money power. As to t!
result, I have not the slightest doubt ol .
Mr. Bryan's election, notwithstanding.
earnest solicitude and brotherly love that
is being proiessea by the capitalist m
the working man's material interest, for I
still N-lieve the pt-otile still have t!i
majority and are iiertectly able to run
the government on J.-ffereon at prin
pies. Heiertfuily yours.
