One of the plans for the promulgation of the a new democracy on a platform demanding the restoration of Silver and opposing government by the trusts which were hatched during the recent Hunting trip in Taney county came to a head yesterday when Walter Vrooman returned from a two weeks visit to Washington and Baltimore. It is nothing less than a plan to promote sentiment favourable to these political propositions by creating and educating a Large corps of Volunteer orators who will go among the people and keep the issues warm for the next four years. The rejuvenated democracy is not a bit discouraged by its recent defeat but is confident that the foundation has been Laid for a Victory at the next general election. For this purpose Che National Bureau of Volunteer speakers has been organized. Walter Vrooman has been selected As its chairman and Lee Meriwether will be treasurer. It is intended to Hae the general Headquarters in st. Louis with a Branch in Washington. The st. Louis Headquarters will be at the Jefferson club for the present. From this Point will be conducted the scheme of organization and instruction. It is believed that there Are a Large number of Young men who Are ambitious to assume prominence in the movement by becoming its evangelists. Such will be Given an Opportunity to work in an organized Way under the supervision of the Bureau and they Are requested to communicate with . Vrooman at once. By working All together it is believed that a great Deal can be accomplished in the Way of educating a majority of the people up to the Point where they will demand economic Equality As Well As political. The plan upon which the Bureau proposes to operate has been copied after the methods of Early methodism and it Hopes to inculcate equal Zeal. In Short the movement will resemble a religious crusade in its Fervour and personal disinterestedness for the speakers will receive no pecuniary remuneration. They Are expected to give a portion of their time and Energy to the advancement of the cause of democracy. A record of the work of every Man will be kept at the Headquarters. It will include the number of speeches made by each speaker the number of Elbs organized and converts made. This record will be made up from monthly reports received from All parts of the country.
