IN THE GRAND MARCH
A DEMOCRATIC- DISTRICT CHAIRMAN
JOINS THE PEOPLE'S PARTY.
Colonel Sidney ' Harper, of Texas, Says
There Is No Difference Between the
Two Old Parties and Ho Wants to Be
In the Straggle for Liberty.
Patriots are quitting the old bulks and
joining the new party of the people. One
of the latest acquisitions is that of Colo
nel Sidney H'arper, of Texas, who has
heretofore occupied the prominent posi
tion of chairman of the Fourth congres
sional district committee. His letter,
resigning his chairmanship and declar
ing his purpose to "join the grand march
in the struggle for liberty," speaks ia no
uncertain language. It has the ring of
the true metal. It is as follows:
To the people of tho Fourth congressional dis
trict: I hereby tender my resignation as chairman
of the Democratic party for this congressional
district. My reasons for so doing are that I go
to a party more democratic in principle, more
patriotic in practice and less prescriptive in
management. Ut dcr the name Democracy the
great mass of common peoplonf the&onthhave
been lured step by step, each year being led
farther away from the old landmarks of its
founders, until today there is no perceptible
difference between the leaders and the vilest
Republicans. The age of corporations, trusts
and combines in which we live is debauching
our politics, corrupting our laws and destroy
ing our government, and making a wreck of
our liberties and paupers of our people.
During this era of corruption the people
hare been kept divided while the lenders of
the two parties have been in partnership.

corporations and fraud which they by law
have foisted upon the people. The land, the
bank, the transportation, the miniugaml man
ufacturing monopolies aro jointly owned and
controlled by the leaders of tlie two old par
tics. The press, the greet political dailies
being largely under the great telegraph news
combine, must of necessity depend ou the
enemies of the people (the trusts and com
bines) for classification and transmission of
political news. By these methods the people
were kept deceived nntil they wero educated

Over half the wealth of the Union is owned

itics to a system of spoliation, pillage and
plunder are now and have been about equally
divided among the managers and leaders of
the two ol 1 parties, thus proving their joint re
sponsibility for the wrongs which exist.
In this condition of matters it is folly to ex

"Evidences of Prosperity."
The following interesting statistics are
taken from the report of the special in
vestigation made by Mr. Robert PorterTj
In Kansas in 1880, of the whole nnm
ber of farmers, 13.13 per cent, lived on
rented farms. In 1890, of "the whole
number of farmers, 83.25 per cent, were
In Ohio in 1880, of the whole number
of farmers, 34.96 per cent, lived on rent
ed farms. In 1890, of the whole num
ber of farmers, 87.10 per cent, were ten
ants. ' ' .
The "evidences of prosperity" are in
creasing as the census reports come in.
And Crime Follows.
Never in the history of this nation
has there been more crimes committed,
more destitution and want, more drunk
enness and debauchery, more licentious
ness, more" corruption in high places,
more general cussedness, than today.
The devil finds work for idle hands to
do. The lack of a circulating medium
makes the idle hands crimes follow as
consequence, Tiffin (O.) Plow and
Down the Promlao Breakers.
If the people will defeat next Novem
ber all who have broken their promises

made to be broken, men elected to con

To liaise I'uuds.
' General James B. Weaver writes to
The National Economist:
In thinking over the best plan for
raising money, now so sorely needed in
tho campaign, I have been impressed
with the following plan: Have our na
tional committee designate a week to be
styled "self denial week," during which
every person who wishes this movement
to be successful will deny himself or
herself some luxury or supposed neces
sity for which they are in the habit of
expending weekly a sum of money, and
at the end of tho week send the sum so
saved by self denial to tho treasurer of
the national committee. This will ex
tend to the use of tobacco in its various
forms, liquors or other articles of daily
consumption which the person or fam
ily may see fit to abstain from.
This ought to raise a very large sum
of money, and it would tend to impress
npon the whole country the serious char
acter of our movement and the reforms
which wo advocate. Tho idea is bor
rowed from tho Women's Christian Tem
perance union, which last year raised
a quarter of a million dollars in a single
week in that way. If this matter should
be promulgated by the committee and
is taken up with zeal by the reform
press everywhere, it will yield a large
snm. Then the Fourth of July collection
added ought to give us a very consider
able snm of money.
P. S. This plan also possesses tho
merit of being a practical levy upon the

The review editor of the Chicago
Tribune, in commenting on "Money,
Silver and Finance," says:
It is unfortunate that tula information ia

cially the agricultural communities. But the
arguments here presented are beyoud Iht com

Oh, but ye are gods and wisdom will

THE BIRMINGHAM MANIFESTO.
Address , of tho Katlonul Alliance
Industrial Uulou PrcNldcnla.
The capitalistic press, especial! in
tho south, is trying to distort the mean
ing of the action of tle recent confer
ence of Alliance officials at Binning-
ham, Ala., so as to create the belief that
it was in opposition to the People's
party. The conference did only what it
could do in that particular and conform
to the Alliance constitution aud obliga
tion. Following is the text of the ad
Aress issued by the conference, and the
"solid south" is welcome to all the com
fort it can obtain therefrom.
To tho Brotherhood of National Farmers

which It was believed seriously threatened
that harmony, brotherly love and unity of

and success of our order In these Motes, after
counseling together aud hearing detailed re
ports, rejoice to Niy to you that wo feel greatly
encouraged and inspired by the splendid spirit
of unity and determined adherence to princi
ple which pervade the order in nearly every
one of these states, notwithstanding the com
bined efforts of our enemies to sow seeds of
discord in our ranks, pending heated political
contests, iiic.il and national.
We therefore feel it our duty as servants of
the people we represent, standing upon the
nntpiKtsand uatchlowers of this the greatest
iliticnl revolution ever known to the nation,
to say to you that wo have entered the crucial
period in the history of our great reform move

rights of humanity. Yon are congratulated
upon tho great harmony and nnity of senti

which prevail within your border, and upon
the fact that a careful canvass of the subject
at this meeting has shown that practically the

determination of holding devotion H them

of their brethren, forgetting tfcat principle of

to the situation, the following rules of action
aro suggested as well calculated to enable the

We are about to enter upon the great
