TO THE DOUBTFUL VOTER.
A Vote for Principle Is Not a Vote
.-.Thrown Away This Year.
Ve seo in tiie oast that, tho old party
organs are advising voters to uvoi.l
throwing away their votes on any new
party.. This hoary headed weapon of
monopolistic partisanship was uever so
stuffed with sophistry a3 this year.
- This is a great year to vote for princi
ple. Wo will not here discuss the
soundness and breadth of tho People's
party platform, but if any voter is con
vinced that the new party has trained
its gnus four square. to the solution of
the question of private monopolies and
still wittlioids hi:: vote, let him make a
careful snrvery of the situation. The
currency and corporation monopolies of
thss country have a grip upon both the
liepublican and Democratic parties.
President Harrison had to uitike a tour

In half a dozen northwestern states
the result will bo determined by the
purchasable vote. It is a cold question
of money. Talto Indiana as an example.
Four years agoa private canvass a'iuwed
that there were S1.UU0 purchasable vote,
and tho Ilepnblicans required -3,0'-0 v!
them to carry the election. As thecvm::
showed, it too ySotl.UOO to swing l.iefo

The Need .of m New Tarty.
This country is ripe for a third party.
The occasion demands it. Never in the
history of politics was there such a cry
ing demand for political reformation
and revolution. It must como through
a now party. The lenders of tho old
parlies are corrupt ubovo all things and
pnsilluniinously wicked. They, are
owned and controlled, soul and body, by
tho money power. " Tho peoplo uinst
take their cause into their own hands,
organize aud fight for liberty. This is
the opportunity of their lives. It should
not be frittered away. It appeals to
tho noblest impulses of the human heart,
and must not bo cast aside. Wiuue
