An Appeal to the People of Oregon.
It is now conceded by all impar
tial and observing minds that the
farmers, the mechanics, the wage
workers and the labor organizations
that constitute the bone and sinew
of the ''Great Common People," are
in sympathy with the People's party
and desire the triumph of its prin
ciples. Then it follows as a con
ceded consequence that the State
of Oregon will cast her vote for
Weaver and Fields in the forth-cum-ing
election if these facts are
demonstrated to the people by vot
ing the People's Party ticket they
will not "lose their votes." But in
order to demonstrate these facts so
as to reach and satisfy the whole
people it is absolutely necessary
that the people raise some funds to
defray- the . legitimate expenses of
The finances of the "Great Com
mon People" as a general rule, are
in a very depressed condition; they
can do but little as individuals, but
can effect wonders if they will co
operate together, each contributing
his or her mite. We have no mil
lionaires, bankers, bond holders, land
barons, railroad magnates', money
lords or salaried otticiais to pour
out their treasures to help our
cause, but we have the farmers,
mechanics, and the day laborers to
rely upon in this emergency, who it
is true are poor in purse, but rich
in patriotism and love of justice.
Therefore we confidently appeal to
them for the necessary means in
this hour of need ' to assure a
triumphant victory for the People's
Party November next.
The official count shoivs that the
People's Party cast over 13,000
votes at the last election and we be
lieve we are entitled to a much
larger number ; but the official
count, as it is, would enable us to
raise over $3,200 for a campaign
fund if each voter will contribute
but twenty-five cents. And we do
not believe that there is one who
voted the People's Party ticket but
that can and will give twenty-five
cents to the People s Party cam
paign fund, if he is satisfied that it
will be honest! v and judicious! v
used in the interost of the People's
cause. And as a guarantee that it
will be so used we order that one
thousand or more copies of this ap
peal be printed and that the Chair
man of the State Executive Com
mittee of-the People's Partv, send
to each County Chairman twenty-
five or more copies for distribution
to proper- persons -in every neigh
borhood in his county, and each
week . in each neighborhood,- the
money collected shall be sent to the
county chairman, who shall re
port all the money received to the
Treasurer of the .State Executive
Committee of the People's Party,
remitting - one-half -of the money
each week to said Treasurer of the
State Executive Committee, 'and
the other half to the Treasurer of
the County Executive Committee,
to be used as a county 'campaign
fund of the People's Party.
. ..In view, of the momentous issues
involved and the great victory that
awaits us, we have every reason to
expect the conditions of this call to
be promptly complied with by the
"Great Common People of Oregon."

M Is Needed, but Must Not Re Corrwpt,
ms with the Dvmo-Rpubllcana. .
Ouo of tbo important elements in all
successful undertakings lies in a conti
nuity of purpose." Tliis factor is developed
and kept an active force through disci
pline more easily than by any otliet
means. To bo successful politically,
practical politics must of necessity b
brought into constant service. Honesty
if purpose and purity of motives will
count for nothing if misdirected, and the
beautiful theory of nltimate triumph of
truth fades Hie tho morning dew when
confronted with hard headed business
politics. Tho People's party in respect
to discipline have scarcely loamed the
rudiments, and many of its members
have much to ondure before they will
become efficient and trustworthy. If it
be true that there is "policy in war,"
bow much greater is the necessity for
policy in politics?
This term policy has a double mean
ing; cue of which is a settled and dis
tinctive purpose, tho other, wisdom
sufficient to avoid needless aud profitless
entanglements. In ordor to make this
term of any practical benefit in politics
it must be backed up by a discipline
that will force members to work not
only in tho face of defeat, but many
times against their own individual
judgment. It is all epitomized ia the
single act of submitting quietly and
loyally to the dictates of the majority.
The People's party must be thoroughly
organized, then thoroughly drilled, ard
then it will march on to victory, provid
ing it stands for the rights of tho peo
ple and does not forget its origin or
It is simple folly to expect that a com
mon bond of union, brought about,
though it may be, through cmmon suf
fering, will hold the Peoplo's party in
tact. It cannot, and to depend on it
will court disaster. It is not necessary
to imitate the corrupt and despicable
methods of the old parties. No, indeed!
But it is necessary to have a concert of
action, a unity of purpose and a general
consent to abide by the decree of the
majority. In fact the idea of consider
ing a just cause suCicicnt reason for it
triumph i an "iridescent dream" that
ends with the awakening.
Tho People's party will be similar tc
the old parties in many respects if it
ever succeeds. It will have an organi
ration intact and complete. It will be
disciplined and taught its dntiea. It
will take advantage of the mistakes ot
its opponents and make the most of
favorable opportunities. It will care foi
its own and defend each other. But it
must differ also in many essentials.
Instead of seeking to deceive and mis
lead it must be truthful, candid and
outspoken. Instead of" appealing to the
baser passions and prejudices, it muni
call for careful, intelligent investiga
tion aud an unbiased judgment. Instead
of working for the spoils- and emolu
ments of ofllcc, let the good of the whole
people and happier conditions for the
race be the chief object. Instead of
making the law creating power an en
gine of economic destruction, let it be
mode a medium for better and more
equitable legislation, and instead of hav
ing congress a den of thieves, specula
tors aud boodlers make it a borne for
the servants of the people in all that this
term implies. In these and in other re
spects this new party must and will dif
fer from the old, if it would live and
grow in the future.
There ia cce other matter in connec
tion with this that is of the utmost im
portance. It has always been the rule
for those who took an active part in re
form movements to pauperize them
selves in their efforts. This has become
so universal that the credit of every one
is materially injured by taking a prom
inent position in these reforms, or even
associating with reformers. Never, un
til this condition is changed, and those
who cannot do this work are willing to
contribute reasonable remuneration for
such services, will the caueof reform
prosper. This unfair condition must be
changed, and those who labor ninst re
ceive an equitablo reward. Taken as a
whole, there are many things for tlie
People's party to learn that only come
through discipline, and the sooner .this
fact is recognized, the sooner a new and
better svstem of laws will bless the na
tion. National Watchman.

capitalists. The urban workmen are denied
tha right of organization for self protection;
Imported pauperized labor beats down their
wages; a hireling standing army, unrecog

down, and tbey are rapidly degcncrallug Into

fortunes for a-few. unprecedented In the his
