I he Llilted States of America is a good country for the victory of the united forces of reform. * * * The disgruntled have nevtr won a battle; and they never as deserters have been of much value to the enemy. * * * Boss 11 anna’s prayer that 2,(MXI,OOO populists in America this year will take to the Iiiiddle-of-the-woods, will not he fulfilled. * * * No battle iii the world’s history has ever been won by sin army of hired mercenaries, deserters anil generals. The army of patriot ic volunteers is the only kind which the God of battles has crowned with victory. * * * Lind and Tow ne talked to 10,000 people in Duluth the evening of the 15th. and had 5,000 iii the procession. No wonder the gold press thinks it time that silver was “on the wane.” Our gold standard friends are sadly in need of a silver wane; but it will never come. * * * When the united forces of free coinage and good government go by hi November and sweep the highways and byways with their marching battalions, there will he left iii the rear, along w ith the scattered remnants of a sadly defeated enemy, a few weak-kneed deserters who will set up their cayote notes from the middle-of-the-slough of despond. W hen the state cent tai committee of the republican party takes the populists of this state to ne so brainless that they will break ranks and scatter into petty factions when the great crisis is at hand -or take to the brush and dig their graves when the promised land is in sight does not understand the stuff ut which loo,'Mi solid Minnesota voters in the people’s party cause is made. * * * The state machine will have the support of the lumber trust aud the pine land barons, the iron ore syndicates, the railway and banks, the foreign controlled elevators, mills and breweries, the slums and schools of vice and crime in the cities, and the whole purchasable vote of Minnesota—all of which will go to the Ilanna-Merriam combination in the interests of “honest linance.” But the untied vote of the people who place principle ami country above party aud organised greed will go to Bryan and Lind and government by the people, and there are thousands of voters of ttiat kind in Minnesota this year. * * * Every free coinage convention thus far held in Minnesota this year has lieen unanimously in favor of a united front for the common cause at issue. The free silver republicans, the free coinage democratic convention, and every people's party county convention thus far held have stood unanimous for union of forces with Lind as standard bearer. It would be the everlasting disgrace aud death of the peoplers party in Minnesota if Hint party which is the parent of the principles and cause now before the people should turn traitor to its principles aud insure their defeat when victory is in sight. The people’s party of Minnesota will never do anything of that kind. The brave and patriotic men which constitute it will never permit tile enemy to use them for such an ignominious end. # * * The lumber trust of the northwest has come out for McKinley, the gold standard, and higher tariff protection for the infant pine industry against the pauper lumber of Europe and Canada. The tact is, so far as protection is concerned, all the pine Limiter imported reaches only 2 per cent of the country’s product, and the imports have been less under the present tariff than under the McKinley act which preceded. The exports are double the imports. The lumber trust practically fixes the price of white pine for the globe. Its plea for protection is about on a par with the plea of Wall street that this country cannot have a monetary system without help from other countries. There is no coward like a million dollars, except a hundred millions. Faith, courage and patriotism are unknown to the vocabulary of plutocracy. * * # The nomination of Fitzpatrick for congress in the first district, or rather, his approval by the joint conference of populists, democrats, free silver rcpute licans and prohibitionists, recently beld at Austin, practically completes the union congressional ticket for the state. Beck in the third has been nominated by the democrats and indorsed by all the people’s party county conventions thus far held. Day iii the second is receiving like support by acclamation. Towue is the unanimous choice of the free coinage forces of all parties in the sixth, Clarke in the fourth, Owen in the fifth, and Lorn rn en in the seventh, all nominees of the people’s party, are certain of indorsement by the flee coinage vote of the other parties. The seven make a strong and clean team for the suffrage and support of the united free coinage and reform forces of the north star state. * * * It is now recognized by Messrs. Hanna and Merriam that the only way to carry Minnesota for McKinley, Hobart and Clough is to prevent union of free coinage and reform forces on Lind and a united congressional and local ticket. Merriam has been to Hanna’s eastern headquarters to consult with Hanna for more funds and workers in this crisis. Hanna’s man Call has been called off because of his timely exposure. His fangs have been plucked and he has been hidden away beyond public sight. Others have been brought out to do his work; but their standing and record is not in all cases such as to command public confidence in their motives and give effect to their efforts. Heavy eastern subscriptions are to be turned into Minnesota to rescue the state from the people and hand it over to the political organization which represents the trusts and pools of America and the liondhnlders of Great Britian. But all this will be vain. The people of Minnesota are not made of that stuff which can be thus molded to the will of their enemies.    F. N. SS. Fraud Glorified in the Name of Honor. bidi tor of the St and a rd : We hear a great deal of talk now days by enthusiastic gold standard men that we must maintain the nation s credit. Alter making inquiries as to how they propose to maintain the nation’s credit we find to our astonishment, that the method is to plunge tile nation deeper iii debt.; that it is by a sort of a game of hattie-door and shuttlecock; a game consisting in giving bonds lur gold, and then giving gold for bonds. It is a “presto-change” with the money lender. The men who do not lielieve iii this principle of maintaining the nation’s credit are the maligned free silver men and green-backers. Their idea is to cheapen money, arid make these burdens easier to carry, and less difficult to discharge. By bringing down the value of gold, it would he easier to pay gold, and when gold and silver are brought to an international parity, then both metals eau lie used to lift the debt from the shoulders of the people where only one is used now. This was the wav conditions existed when our debt was first contracted: hut since the demonetization of silver, the appreciating gold standard has made the debt tw ice as onerous, and will take several limes as long to lift it entirely. The fact of the matter is that under existing circumstances, the debt may continue to grow instead of diminish. For the last IU years, gold bas been getting scarcer, and the government has sometimes been in very embarrassing circumstances to keep up running expenses. I he gold reserve has been going down, and bonds issued from time to time to keep it above low water mark the dip),000,000 reserve. The importations have been getting lighter, the supreme court leis reversed the income tux law, gold hits steadily risen iii value; aud silver fallen in like proportions. In the face of such facts as these, the man who insinuates that all notes redeemable in coin should be redeemed in either gold or silver at the option of the govei ament; and that silver should be made to act by the side of gold, such a man is an “anarchist,” “repudiator” and the “enemy of the national credit.” Well, I do not see it that way. ll occurs to me that the advocate of such a doctrine is the best friend of the nation’s credit. The truth is, those men who want to maintain the nation’s credit by plunging it deeper iuto debt have an axe to grind, and expect to add a little to the size of their own pocketbook. They want posterity to attend to the disagreeable work of paying off the debt. In specking about the formation of tins debt, Mr. Uidpalh, the his • •rian, under the subject of bond aud OoUtr, says: “From that day (March ITOj distant from the present by more than 2fi years, there has been no deviation or shadow of turning on the part of the intrenched intrigue to carry out the compact. Year by year the bolts ami bars have been driven ever farther and deeper with blow on blow of the sledge of the money power, until the national fraud has been glorified under Hie name of honor, and the wholesome truth nailed in the cortin of contempt. Bach succeeding administration has l»een even as its predecessor, but more so in devotion to the bondholding interests at the expense of all besides.” 11ms w e see that while the boast of national honor and credit has been pictured by cartoonists, written by editors and recited by orators, ana the average person led to believe it was something less than sacred; they have committed diabolical outrages on the people, under the guise of national credit, while all the time they were deceivers, betrayers, imperialists and plunderers.    D. M. Todd. Kansas City, Mo., Aug. BL A Candid V iew' of Free Coinage. Minneapolis Times: The runes is asked w hether, in the event of free silver being adopted by this country alone, all the silver money in the world would lx* dumped upon us. This would not necessarily follow, although it is held by a good many persons that such would Im* the result of independent free coinage here. The Silver money of the world amounts to $3,800.(100,000, or about *36 per capita. lf the commercial price of silver should be raised from 53 cents lo SI, it is difficult to see bow any harm could result to us from the process; or what occasion there would Ire for sending silver over here to he coined, it it were worth as much uncoined. If, aa is claimed by the gold standard men, the price ol silver would remain at 53 cents, the foreigner, if he sent his silver over here, would have to invest it In some of our products. We could probably stand the investment of — say, •S.OlWjOOO.OOU in this country. It could hardly fail to give a great impetus to industries of every kind, and increased production would mean employment to all lalnir, at good wages. There is not the slightest likelihood that one-half the silver iii the world would flow to this country; but even if it did, and we should retain all Die money we now have, our per capita would just about equal that of France at the present time.

The New V ork Herald prints a three-column article from John Bussell Young, its correspondent at the Chicago convention, about the cause of the great revolution in the west and south. IL* says silver is the symbol and not the cause; the people are angry. The west is swept with a wave of discontent. ** rids discontent is based u(Kin the indifference at Washington to any interest but those of monopolies. Corporate schemes are so multiplied and vast that they block the way in congress. Neither party takes a proper interest iii measures of vital interest lo the people. The result is a rebellion expressed iii the nomination of Mr. Bryan.** “If I thought free silver would win in the election, ’ a Kansas hanker is reported as saying on Hie eve of his departure for Europe this spring, “I would stay at home and invest every dollar I could get ta real estate." He was an advncale of Hie gold standard, hut he freely admitted that free silver would make the farms worth more. “Perhaps it may cause rise enough to make farms worth more than the mortgage on them.

Winnebago City Press-New*: Is the Winnebago City steam mill one of a syndicate drawing two cents a barrel to shut dots! This question wiLs asked the writer one day this week. Upon investigation we find the mill is listed in the state syndicate of mills. Its capacity is 2U0 barrels per day. lf it draws the two cent rate the amount received is 81 per day, 824 per week, or about 81,2U0 per year. The New Prague parties have the mill leased until ITO; they can, should they desire, surrender the lease on the first day of January next. In the meantime miller Tews is overhauling the mill and keeping its rmichiiiery in proper condition. The contract calls for his employment, and so to speak, he draws his salary whether school keeps or not. To be brief this is the present status of things. On the other hand our people don’t like this arrangement a little bit. The village and surrounding country would rather hear the hum of its machinery. Everylxnly wants the mill to run. for the fact is today our dealers are importing nearly all of the Hour consumed in this citv. Ingersoll’s Plan to Deal With Criminals.

See our New Jersey to Albert Lea with His Family on a Wheel. J New York World, Aug. 16: Henry Norton, a painter who has lived in Camden, N. J., for several years is now on his way to Albert Lea, Minn., on a bicycle, over the rear wheel of which he constructed a platform and above this he placed a teot. The platform is large enough to afford space for his wife and two children as well as a few cooking utensils. Thus equipped he expects to make one hundred miles a day, aud he does not think that the trip will cost him more than 8IU). Norton has been out of work for some time. A brother who lives iii Minnesota promised him work if lie would go out there. He had no money to pay railroad fare and was wondering what he was to do when he saw a bicycle parade and that gave birn the idea for his tent on a wheel. Ile immediately set to work and constructed his raft and a few days ago started on his journey. Attention, G. A. R. We, as committee on transportation for Freeborn county tor <4. A.
