The People's Party cast a better
vote than : some expected in this
part of the c unity and if the vote
were take:i thia week m my more
would hV) supported the ticket
than di I, for several have sstiti
they wo.ild h.ive done so if they
had thought there wua any choiv
of eiejiiag anyone on that ticket.
The general result in the state
is iiico'.irngin nnd proves we have
the balance of' purer aV least.
Now lei us continue the fight from
no on and kerp in tho riiddle of
the road . nnd no comproniise of
principle for temporary success
and then we will be eure to win
grand results in the near future.

Then it will be the pt-ople ngainst
the plutocrats and their tools ami

gain the victory over the classes
and society take another grand
stride in the m.irch of progress
and social evolution. The people
are thinking and talking nnd they
will not except stones for bread
or promises for deed. Let us not
accept any misleading ci-heme of

demand for land loans and sub

The plntocrttic press i.j muddled over
t'ac objects and adieu of tho Dirniia"
liaui conference. Some cf them assert
thnt it was a vigorous repudiation of the
People's party. Others are equally sure
that it was an unequivocal indorsement
of iL These differing opinions are given
only as opinions. But they undertake
to givo facta and hero U where they
revel ia tho broad and congenial anl
familiar domain of rcCncd lying. Tor
example, thcr say that tho test vote
which killed tho Third party stood 21
ta'-en. They say that a certain fellow
ia tho conferonco uiado a gallant Gght
againRt tho Third party aud squelched
it. Not a word of trnta ia it.
Tliey say that a Third party president
from one of tho states absolutely burst
into tears when ho saw it was defeato 1.
Another one out of wholo cloth. To
show that ubsoluto harmony prevailed
look at the address and you will see that
all the gentlemen present from tho states
signed it. .Keep oa guessing. Wo will
cortaiuly not aid yon ia Gliding out what
tho conference did. Aro you pnsrJed?
Keep wp rour misrepresentation. Dou't

As I havo said nothing as to candi
date I hopo you will givo me room for
a few words. If anything on earth
makes mo lose faith in tho capacity of
tho human family it U to soo men who
really aro in earnest and havo tho old
political wool partly out of their eyes,
straying off after strange gods, into tho
camps of our bitterest enemies fcr rep
resentatives of our political principles.
What can our men moan when they
say Sanford, Grosham. Butler and out
el's equally far from our fold are tho
men to uoniinato for president by tho
People's party? Any honest, able and
intelligent man in onr ranks would be a
thousand times preferable to any out
sider. We havo a host of patriots iu our
ranks that havo the qualifications.
