Our Raou Balor friends Are continually a in Iii so Inadoli about the enormous profits and spirit evinced by the gathering and predict that another election will show that the Farmers Aro abandoning the old parties who have done live association. Thin transaction indexes the of he head Center of the Register ring. The name Clarkson champions everything revalue from a Rioual banking that Home nothing Tor them in the punt and Haku a la Boot in popular for the Hond at Miudo people who know nothing that Thoy will elect men who will about it lira led to believe these profits Aro work unceasingly regardless of poli Rio Bitant. Tj0bi for mar buros calculated to Aid Why bless you Bro. Burdick you. The Farmer from the crashing weight ire late. The Greenback Era got of Hia unbearable through with that question Long ago proved it and settled it. That old we Salku s Bill antediluvian Granny the do quo tit nos has misled you on the issues i r a t. ,. For the Relief of the it is True that there is no business that1 yields As Good a Lotita As National bunking we talked recently with a Man of Means a lawyer an owner of pity property a practical Farmer and professional Money Lender. He said and in Franklin buy expedition to the Artie regions. The to Imit i and Eien Ion of Good hereafter. At 3 o clock p. In. We left men to office and Pnra in Dange r. For Durant where As usual we arrived our to i Heitov in i Economy nil pro some a to Nom 2ate Craod this time offi i bet la is to do whereas in consequence of a ser a Ioa of unwise attempts to explore the it yields me Tho Best income of any. Uninhabitable and unproductive reinvestment i hive Gigions toward the North pole Tho extensive owner of Bank Stock  live of a j number of soldiers and a National Bank director inform of us in 1879 that the Bank wit i which he was connected had never paid less than 12 per cent dividends after paying All expo sos and setting aside reserves and liar. A is for the year just past that ten years previous when the bunk yearly dividends were 25 per cent. That was for a decade of disaster when every Farmer and most Burin ass men found them Olvea growing poorer and poorer every year. It was then More than now that Greenback Era proclaimed against their extortionate profits. Though in if still lot i ail Bui he in profits and always will so Long As they Are continued the difference is not now so striking. The most noticeable Avils now a payout in the National banking system Are the incompetency of the system to furnish currency adequate to the growing wants and business of the country consequent up of the opening up of new territory and Tho growing wealth of the settled portions and Tho advantage thus Given to a class a ring a Combina Tion to control the entire business of the nation for speculative purposes. The National banking system makes it possible for capitalists Ami heavy dealers to Conjoint to boar the Price of any or All kinds of produce and then to Corner the same. Without the Aid of the National Banks such operations would be greatly crippled in their Powers for evil and the tap Root of All monopolies Cut off. It is stated that Sam. Randall took on own calamity Waller no Between his fingers figuratively renking a few Days Ayo join a the a Lou Eion of a question and squeezed him so hard that it made Weller Tho touching took of the whole House. Calamity however settled Down behind his Phoek and did t appear to mind the matter Mutoli. Perhaps or. Weller did not know that Sam. Randall was loaded when is began fooling around him. Calamity should try to be too familiar with weapons of Sammy s Down oort. Congressman Weller arose but once since Hia assault on Randal and consequent ool lapse. I want to introduce a Bill but web Ila Noad with ones of regular the fourth District is now without a member in news. Paragraphs like the above pre found in abundance in the sore eyed poodle press of the fourth District but we have observed with satisfaction that the respectable portion of the Republican Presa have got through harping on or. Wallers incapacity and to have also observed that the better class of democratic papers Are very commend tory of or. Weiler regarding his tilt with Randall. The fact is none but big-1  ted idiots would put such stuff in print As the clippings with which we introduce this paragraph. Or. Weller has acquitted himself honorable. The amendment to the rules which he proposed was just Tho thing needed to head off and shut out corrupt legislation. Like an honest Clear headed and courageous Farmer he unearthed the mischievous thing which Randall and his Tricky pals had so nicely serrated to Gull grangers with. Of course Randall was As mad As any mount Bank to have his bobs trick publicly exposed of course with the Brazen Assurance of his class he would simulate contempt and soon but withstanding we lot stripped him of his garments of of pretended superiority and stood him up before Tho people a disrobed miscreant. All Honor we say to or. Weller. If the majority of the members of oon Greas were As honest be Clear headed As fearless and As watchful of the in Forest of their constituents As or Weller the people of the United states would soon enter upon an Era of Prosperity and happiness Superior to any they have yet experienced sailors of the states and other persons Aro in Immis Sut peril and whereas the United states govern ment has at various times attempted at. The expense of several millions of dollars to Rescue persons similarly imperilled and such attempts have resulted in Thosa Eriline of a great number of lives and Imp riling a greater Upnmoor of person the in were designed to Rescue and the Bias persons engaged in certain private pursuits Are bettor fitted by training and habit to undertake such enterprises of Rescue than the soldiers and sailors of the United states army and Navy May be the of fore.
