More Truth Than Poetry In The Aforesaid
The Astorian has published a
good many Republican, Demo
cratic and Prohibition speeches.
Below it gives a sample of the
shibboleth of another party the
Union Labor Party.
At a meeting last week at Hop
kins, Mo., Albert F. Streeter the
candidate of the Union Labor
party for president of the United
Mr. President, ladies and gen
tlemen fellow citizens of Missouri
and Iewa: "Wo have met here to
day to discuss some of the issues
of the present pending campaign.
I am not a stranger to many of
you. Six years ago I came to
your adjoining county of Worth,
and bought land, fenced it in and
in other ways improved it, and
stocked it up to the best of my
ability, with as good stock as I
could furnish from my home farm
in Illinois. Hence I have a com
mon interest with you in the pros
perity of this country, a common
interest with you that we shall
prosper together as we did in the
past. Unfortunately however,
there are but few of us that are
making money, and I venture the
assertion that three out of every
four of the fanners on the great
western prairies are to-day work
ing from daylight till dark to make
both ends meet and then most of
you fail to do so. Am I not cor
rect in this statement, my brother
famers? Then is there not some
thing wrong, when the great
agricultural interest ol the country,
and upon which all other industries
are based, is struggling with debt
and mortages that are sinking the
farmers deeper and in debt as the
years roll on and until thousands
are no longer able to make them
selves comfortable nor their
I believe that when neither you,
nor this old gray headed farmer,
with all past experience in farming
and stock raising in Missouri and
Illinois, cannot make a dollar in
the business, there is something
wrong, and the conditions should
Is it not true that we have a
soil that is unsurpassed in fertility?
Is it not true that we have the
natural resources to make the peo
ple of the great northwpst the
richest, most prosperous and happy
to be found upon the earth?
Then why is it that we are la
boring year in and year out for
nothing? Why is it that when I
came from Ureston to-day, I saw
young ladies and young men, boys
and girls bare footed tramping
along the hard roads? Do you
say that young ladies twenty years
of age would go bare footed if they
had shoes? Nor have these con
ditions come upon us as the result
of bad crops, for we find the same
conditions in all the states where
the crops have been good or bad,
both north or south.
Then wherein is the trouble?
It is the result of class laws, and
which have been administered in
a way to build up a moneyed aris
tocracy which absorbs the wealth
of the country, and for whoso
benefit we live and labor. This
moneyed aristocracy has subverted
the fundamental principles of a
government of the people, as es
tablished by our fathers, and in
lieu of it we have this greedy,
grasping and avaricious aristoc
In which combinations, corpo
rations and trusts- abound, and
which has both old political parties
and the government in its clutch,
and for more than twenty years it
has controlled enacted and admin
istered the laws in a way to aid
their schemes to rob the industrial
If this be a government of the
people, then is it not the duty of
the government to aid the com
mon people to pay their debts, to
aid them when in distress? If the
government will not do this then
it is unworthy of the confidence
and support of the people.
The government drafted the
poor man for its defense, the rich
man hired another poor tnun for
his substitute; so the poor man
did nearly all the hard work in de
fending the government, and when
the war was over the corporate
monopolies got all the poor soldiers
earned. In this way the govern-1
ment has been aiding the moneyed !
aristocracy for more than twenty
years, until we think it has gone
too far; until we propose to reverse
the engine and have the govern
ment aid its working people for
a while those who carried knap
sacks to defend it.
In doing this we demand that
there shall be more money in cir
culation, cheaper rates for trans
portation, cheaper rates for use of
money, and that corporate mo
nopolies and trusts, which have
been robbing us without hindrance
from either of the old political
parties, shall be taken by the
throat and choked to death.
Should not this be done? Have
not both old parties failed to do it?
We judge the future by the past,
and declare unto you that there is
no hope for reliet in either old
party; they have been tried too
long already, hence we come be
fore my brother farmers, with a
new party, a party of the people,
of those who work in fields, and
shops, and mines, and of all others
who are opposed to both old politi
cal parties in their administration
of affairs. With all of these re
form elements united in the new
party, we swear by the hard hand
of toil, by the bread we produce
for our children to cat, that we
will not surrender; but that we will
fight on and on until the monopoly
beast of seven hornr., until the
devil fish with his sucking tentacles
in every transportation line, and
the board of private trusts, shall
bo vanquished and driven from the
field, and the government restored
to the people to whom it belongs.
I say to you distinctly that both
old parties are owned and con
trolled by the money power, and
it makes no difference which one
you support or is in power, the
robbery will go on as before. The
industrial classes must learn that
they can accomplish nothing until
they stop wrangling and are united
as one. We now come with the
olive branch and the remedy, and
tell you that you have no hope
save through a new part- of re
form. Now, what do we want? We
want this government administered
in the. interests of the people
awhile. Is it asking too much?
We have seen it administered in
the interests of the money class
long enough, and now we wish to
run it in the interest of the people.
Let me ask you a question. Do
you think the government was
created for the benefit of your
party; or, was the part' created
for the benefit of the people? That
is the question, and the point over
which many of you have stumbled,
placing your party before your
Men of Hopkins, you have seen
hard times too, and many of your
buildings are empty because peo
ple can not make a living here.
They have gone off and left you,
just as they have gone and left
our farms in Illinois; they have
gone to the far west and to othrr
towns. (Jhicago, since lnbl, has
increased 51 per cent, in popula
tion, while eighty-seven of the
best agricultural counties in the
state have lost in population.
There is something wrong when
farming don't pay in Illinois; and
I know that farming here no
longer pays, and you who live
upon farms know it too.
Let me tell you a little circum
stance. . Last fall I sold a man in
this town, from my farm twelve
miles from here, a lot of as fine
heifers, about forty head, as ever
came to this market; they were as
clean and healthy a drove of heif
ers as you would wish to see. I
sold them to him .for $2.15 per
hundred, and I understand he
shipped them to Chicago and lost
$100 on the shipment. I -lost
money on them, though I raised
them from calves up to the time
they were sold. He lost $100 in
handling them, i he railroad com
pany got $G0 per car for hauling
them to Chicago, and there they
went into the hands of a "beef
trust" which is said to have made
$55,000,000 by sucking that imie.h
blood out of us.
What have these old political
parlies done for you? Are they
not in league with these combina
lions and trusts? And what you
have to hope for is more than 1
They have told you that times
would be better next year; but,
instead, times get worse every
year. They tell you to stick to
your old party and that will give
you relief; and you have stuck un
til you are, many of you, hanging
by the ragged edge of despair.
Has either of the old parties'put
down the money trust, the oil
trust, the sugar trust, the lumber
trust, the salt trust, the coal tr.ust,
the binder twine trust, the coffee
trust, or any other trust? No!
they have not. But they want
you to stick to it all the same.
Will you do it? And the majority
of these trusts' have been organ
ized under this democratic ad
ministration. That there is something wrong
is evident, and I say to you that
we propose to have cheaper rates
for transportation of products, to
have cheaper rates on money by
increasing the volume in circula
tion, b paying off the national
debt, by reduction of the tariff
where there can reasonably be a
reduction made, by loaning money
to farmers and other business in
terests as well as to bankers, at
the same rate, on good security,
and administer the government
generally in the interest of the
I want you all to take a good
live labor paper, one that is not
afraid to advocate vour interest.
I diiu'i. obj.-cl to yo'r taking
other papers, but your interest and
duty is to take at least one. gno-1
paper that is in the interest of the
Union labor party.
My good Christian friends, men
and women, let me ask 3-011 a few
questions, you who worship Jesus
of Nazareth, thesou of a carpen
ter. If lie whom you worship
was on earth to-day, which side of
this question do you think He
would bo on? Would He be on
the side of the moneyed aristoc
racy and trusts or on the side of
the industrial people? If you, in
your heart, think He would be
with the people, then you should
also be with us, or you need to be
Our platform says: "Arbitra
tion should take the place of
strikes." Is not that right? La
bor, strikes are unprofitable, and
often a failure, and disturbers of
business; hence we want arbitra
tion to take their place. Employ
ers and employes should be com
pelled to arbitrate their differences
by a penal law. There Vrould
have been no strike on the C. B.
& Q. road if the company had had
the willingness, to use no stronger
word to submit the difference be
tween the company and its em
ployes to arbitration. But this
the company refused to do, even
when the brotherhood, as I am in
formed, offered to let the company
choose two of the three arbitra
tors. It seems that capital is not
willing to acknowledge the equal
ity of man. Nor does it like a
government of the people. And,
disguise it as we may, the breach
between corporate monopoly and
labor is still growing wider, and if
not adjusted in some honorable
way may lead on to much more
serious trouble. Therefore it is
the part of wis-e statesmanship and
sound public policy to adjust these
growing differences in a fair and
impartial manner. Corporate cap
ital is too arrogant, and relies too
much on Pinkerton's lawless mi
litia; this may not be just the
