Noi 110 Dearborn St Chicago who Are authorized to receive advertisements or notices and make contracts it our lowest Ratos is Call and see them i the congressional election. Western Rural. It would not be reasonable to expect that in a year and a half the scattered Farmers Coul Jujj be got together in sufficient numbers to make great changes in our corrupt politics and alter the entire co inflection of Congress. Long and decided Steps have been taken in that direction and the time is coming when the thing will be accomplished. The Farmers of this country will As surely give to our National legislature the character that it ought to have As there shall be Congress. But they May not be Able to do it at once. It would be marvelous if they were. The office holding aristocracy have got such a foothold that they cannot be dislodged in a moment but the people j Are tugging at them and the wire pullers and place Hunters Are giving the popular cause greater strength and impetus at almost every political convention. The politicians in the presence of an office Are like a drunkard n the presence of a bottle it makes no difference what appeals May be made to his reason he disregards it All and everything and succumbs to the great temptation. It would be supposed that with the Plain indication of the ruin 0$ political parties if they continue to do As they have been doing their leaders would pause and consider. But the temptation of immediate enjoyment is too great and shutting their eyes to the lightning they deliberately walk into the danger of destruction refusing to listen to the reasonable demands of the great producing classes. Of All our Congress there is not a dozen in it who Are worthy of the support of our Western Farmers and yet they Are All struggling for a return to the scene where for two years they have neglected the interests of the Farmer and insulted him by their neglect of duty. Where such negligence is so nearly Universal it ought not to be difficult to decide upon our duty As electors. Two years trial of a congressman ought to be enough to show us what he is and How much he can be depended on and if we Rise above party prejudice and like sensible men consult our own interests we will vote against nearly the whole pack that is now straining every nerve to secure a re election. If the average Reader wishes to engage in hard exhausting work let him sit Down in the Shade and find something in the record of his congressman during the last two years that was an Earnest Effort to serve the interests of our producers. If his record is All right if he has done nobly in the work of endeavouring to protect the Farmer against Railroad monopoly the iniquities of the Patent Law the extravagance in the expenditure of the Public Money if his vote was against the paying of enormous rum Bills and in favor of such Public improvements As the needs of the Farmer required by All Means vote for his return to whatever political party he May belong. If he has been True to you stick to him and do not Swap horses while crossing the if your congressman has done nothing for you if he has sat by while the railroads and Patent right men have plundered you if he has drank rum at your expense or allowed your Money to be used in paying for what others have drank will you be Good enough to toll As a sensible Man on what ground you justify yourself in giving him your voice is it because he is a shyster lawyer whose glib Tongue has made you believe that he is better fitted to represent you than Yon Are to represent yourself or your neighbor is to represent you if so do not be so unjust to either yourself or our other intelligent Farmers any longer. We do not need lawyers in Congress. It is a matter of some doubt if we need them anywhere but we do not need them in Congress at any rate. What we want there Sye Plain practical men who know the necessities of the people and have a willingness to legislate for the people. We Mako mistake when we Send Mon to Congress simply because they to Are an animated Tornado and can talk by the Yard we make a mistake when we Send men to Congress simply because they Are Rioh and can dress Well but ape As indolent As a water gorged log and often As impracticable As a Crank i in Short we make a mistake when to select for Congress men who Are not of the people and for the people. We have now been talking for nearly two years As to what we shall do at the next congressional election. We have talked bravely but How Are we going to act Reader we do not know what you Are going to do but As for ourselves we will vote for no Man for Congress who is not in Active sympathy with the people in their struggle against wrong and outrage and if no party gives us such a candidate to vote for we will put an Independent Man upon our ticket and thus at least have the satisfaction of voting As we talk. Our Syndicate press. Here is what the new. York graphic a hard Money paper has to say of our new York leading dailies,." you will perhaps after Reading the article better understand Why it Iff the conductors of the metropolitan press worship the Golden calf the new York press does repro went the Syndicate and the Large Money dealers More than any other class of the Community. It is believed and stated without contradiction so far that the new York world i under the control of August Belmont and the Philadelphia member of the Syndicate it is they who Are the Money of the paper and it is understood that it is their interests both in politics and business which Are represented by the course of that journal. Then new York times is supposed to be inspired by sex governer Morgan also a member of the Syndicate then the other influences Back of the times a Are the very Rich men who have direct relations with. Wall Street and the leading Money interests there. The Tribune As is popularly supposed is partially if not wholly owned by Jay ground. His interest is that of a Bear by insisting upon Gold unit of value prices Are depressed and then a millionaires have common interests the world Over being the representatives of the creditor class who naturally wish their rape by to have the largest possible purchasing Power. The Herald is owned by a very Rich Man James Gordon Bennett supposed to be Worth some six millions of dollars and of course his interest is with the creditor Dass. A the journal of Commerce and the bulletin Are peculiarly subject to Wall Street influences especially those of the great creditors. The Sun has recently Given some signs of repenting of its Golden heresy. Of course the creditor interests Are powerful in the evening Post office although we judge the attempt to pay in Gold debts contracted in paper Money in the Purchase real estate has proven a very serious business for the chief proprietors of that paper. Augustus Schell whose relations Syndicate Are Well known is a Large stockholder in the express newspaper which accounts for the milk in that Cocoa nut. It will tails be seen that without any actual bribery the new York press because of its proprietorship is on the Side of the Gold big bugs instead of the it represents a class which has Money out at interest and wishes to get the largest possible return for the investments. We do not say that any editor publisher or proprietor or any of the new you k papers is purchased with Money but naturally these organs represent the people who own Vliem and their interests Are very different from those of the great mass of the american Elkader Register. The session of Congress just closed has been marked As the most recklessly profligate and corrupt that has been held for Many Blind to the interests of the people it has devoted its time to political bickering and a general onslaught on the Treasury for needless appropriations. Now that these alleged statesmen have adjourned a sigh of Relief goes up from All Over the country. Two years ago a democratic Congress appropriated $190,000,000 for All governmental purposes. This year under a Republican Congress they have expanded to the enormous total of $293,555,489, the average Republican will not feel proud of this year s congressional itty Iowa Homestead.
