down to Ironton and were Mayor Pingree of Detroit spoke last tight at Bay City before the Cycling of that place His speech comes lome to Fort Wayne readers with such force that the POST publishes part of the speech verbatim The same con- ditions exist in every city and the cor- newspaper which Mayor gree attacks can be found in almost every place pretending to rule the lican or democratic party as it may be most useful to the corporations it resents Let Fort Wayne people peruse this speech of the peoples champion and if they see any shoe that fits let hem put it on the proper foot Mayor Pingree HEAD OUT OF THE I do not propose to permit the Detroit Tribune and its crowd of corporation lackers to crowd me out of the ican party to which I have all my life nor to tell me what ican principles are for my actions will justify me when I say that I know bet ter what these are than they do On the contrary I propose to show the people of Michigan that the Detroit Tribune does not represent true lican principles and that the few lowers which it has in Detroit are all mies of the true interests of the ple That they are and attorneys and that they pose as republicans at present because igan is a republican state and they can is such Letter further their interests THE NEW STORE 54 Calhoun Street LACE CURTAINS AND DRAPERIES I We have opened on our second floor front a Drapery De- that intend

ORDER BY MAIL CORPORATIONS BUY The Detroit Tribune proposes to read me out of the republican Mr Scripps paper says that lam not a re- publican Now who is Mr Scripps and what is the In the prolonged struggle of the ple of Detroit with corporate greed vinch had our fair city by the throat he Tribune was in each and every case gainst the people and has been the special advocate of the corporations It was so in the street car fight the fieht the electric light others Is it the principle of the republican party to take always the side of tions against the By tions I mean combinations which are in a trust in violation of section 1 of of the act of July 2 1800 An act to protect trade and commerce against unlawful restraints and monopolies also all corporations which are and exact exorbitant charges 13 common carriers or otherwise ALWAYS TAKES THEIR PART To take the part of such has been the steadfast policy of the Tribune and I say that it does not represent can principles in this respect The De- troit Tribune has been the advocate of everything good bad and indifferent done by trusts and combinations of all sorts You will not find an editorial in that paper condemning any of the trust methods It is itself part of a trust It does not represent the great principles if the republican party in this respect Xot even by accident does this bound sheet ever take the side of the farmers or the people at large against overcharges in freight and passenger rates by railroads or the manipulation of prices by trusts Take its back numbers and satisfy yourself To aid in bolstering up trusts and abuses is to declare war against common people This is the tion of the Tribune and the crowd it represents That is the issue It is common report that its opinions and editorials can be bought as you buy bread and these have no weight ever with people who understand from what sources its revenue is derived Vet this is the paper which proposes to say who may and who may not be a re- publican and to represent the lican party of Michigan PEOPLE STOOD BY HIM In my as mayor of Detroit I stood by the people and the people jave stood by me during a long fight here is certain element in that city and which pretends to run the state who have been my most bitter enemies You may call the roll of this crowd and I will show you that almost without are men who are profiting by from which the people at large are suffering They arc either owners of stock in railroads street car lines trusts corporations telephone or telegraph systems or they are hangers-on and dependants of cor- in oneway or another Some of our great politicians those who dis- pense patronage are our greatest cor- The little politicians those who are after the pap only follow the lead of these men I do not be- lieve that the masses of the republican party in Michigan are ready to admit that people of the classes mentioned represent the republican party in this state I say emphatically that they do not represent the sentiment of that party nor does the Detroit Tribune which they control MONOPOLY'S FUND There ia a form of indirect it ion of which railroads trust and monopoly franchise corporations are the cause which s even greater than the unjust and exorbitant charges and which they impose upon the I refer to the large money spent by them in corrupting the representatives of the people m con- the legislature and in conventions and courts of justice That they do this no one who hits dealt with them will deny H constantly necessary for them to do this in order to maintain the privileges which they enjoy The are in turn swindled out of their rights and property by those who have ic corrupted The money power spends arge sums to elect their tools to and the hitter reciprocate by into the hands of their musters The spoil is divided Politics has on this mill become a lucrative business even at a small salary The people are the victims and in the end foot tl bills TEST OF CORPOItATIOX SHEETS This in my opinion is one of the most vital questions before the people today Whenever you see a newspaper ignores this fact you may put it dowr that it is in the trust Such papers bear down heavy on side issues in order to pull the wool over people's eyes aud sidetrack them will tell you thai what I say about trusts and railroads makes me a list and because the Tribune approves of their methods it claims to be a re- publican The Tribune usually calls me an anarchist If anarchy means the destruction of the republic I know of no agency or doctrine which will sooner bring this about than to eive trusts and railroads full swing to do and charge as they please Their ad- vocate the is at heart an enemy of the people and their wellfare Hule by these classes or ruin to the masses is its hidden motto A FAVORED CLASS The indirect taxation to which I re- ferred is that form of taxation levied by railroads and other public tions in the way of excessive rates of freight and passage that form of tion levied by gas and telephone and street car companies The state permits the organization of such companies and gives them the taxing power If the rates ire reasonable the indirect tax is no If not reasonable they are op- pressive It is the unreasonable rates that I am fighting Many of these corporations are exempt from taxation If the railroad in Detroit which is exempt from taxation were placed upon the tux rolls alongside ol the products of labor and stocks merchants and the cottage the tax which they would be required to pay would amount in round numbers to at least per year To mit such corporations to levy excessive indirect taxes means to create a favored class which sooner or later will become in aristocracy so impudent and so that it will take a standing army to keep their brazen crowns upon their heads REMEDY FOR TOE SITUATION You perhaps ask tne what remedies I have to offer for the abuses which we ill know exist The first remedy is to take the power out of the hands of those who believe things are at present st as they ought to be and place men at the helm who can at least see and admit that there arc diseases from which the patient suffers Mr There is nothing to arbitrate The Oh let us alone we're all and their Tribune piously Amen I not ready to admit that the moneyed power as represented in those who abuse the liberties of the republic is greater than the people I believe lhat the people I mean the common men some rights which corporations must respect now PEOPLE ARE TAXED If you have money to invest about you can get a thousand mile ticket md thus you get a rate of 2 cents per mile If you do not have the you ire charged 3 cents per mile This is a specimen of the equal rights made ible by railroad legislatures This is he way In which railroad legislatures and the railroad newspapers allow the railroads the right to tax the common run of people in favor of the few This is the way great fortunes are built up in a Christian land This taxation through the conspiracy of railroad newspapers with boodle legislatures This railroad scheme is just the same i though one man was taxed 2 cents who owned 820 and the man who owned was taxed 3 cents I say that railroad fares are a tax You cannot make them anything else Hoodie legislatures fix them and is what makes them a tax Look to the men who want to go to the
