Republican Why do you Green backers or nationals oppose the National bunking system National because it is unjust to the people. will you make it Plain so All can see it As you do National we will try. Lot us go into the Bank across the Street and prove it by the banker himself. . Banker How much Money did Yon loan to the government ? million dollars sir. Security did you take for the loan took the government s Bond payable in 20 years bearing 9 per cent., Gold interest. you still hold that Bond i pawned it to the government and received on it 900,-000 of fractional currency. did you do with the 000,000 of currency paid it out to the poo ple for property. Security has the people that the Money you paid them is Good Bond is on desposit As collateral for its final redemption by the government. you have parted with nine tenths of your claim against the government by passing it Over to the people in Exchange for their property or in other words the people have refunded to you 90 per cent of your loan to the govern ment and taken a Lien on your Bond . the people draw from the government nine months or their proportion of the interest on the Bond , no i still continue to draw the entire interest without being taxed while the people who own nine tenths of the claim draw no in terhost and Are taxed to pay mine. really the govern ment owes you but $100,000 of the million you having transferred $90 l-000 of the claim to the people and at the same time the latter Are taxed to pay you interest on the whole Are about the facts under the Law. what extent does the Law allow you Bankers to carry this system of speculation ? Are not limited by Law. We can carry it to the extent of the bonded debt of the is one of the nicest schemes Ever in vented. It in like a Rachel wheel it lakes All and gives nothing. Tho whole people Are taxed to pay us in Terest on what they do not owe while we Are exempt even from our own burdens you expect to Hypothecate More of your Bonds for currency and Transfer them to the people for , As soon As we can get the infernal greenbacks out of Competition and property values Are depreciated enough to enable us to rope in three dollars Worth for one of currency. This we intended to do when we got a clause inserted in the redemption act to allow us to inflate our Bank currency without what amount of Bonds do you now hold which you Are at Liberty to put up for Bank currency ten thousand million dollars with what we already have up. A handling the $2,000,-000,000 of Bonds and the nine tenths or $1,800,000,000 of currency As you did your million dollars and $900,000 of currency what would be the result financially of your investment result will be we shall carry but one tenth or two Hundred millions of the Public debt while drawing interest on the whole the people will carry nine tenths of the Burden draw no interest but have the privilege of paying ours. much will your annual interest amount to one Hundred Mill ions. do the tax payers get in return . you contracted to extend a certain favor to the govern ment for which you wore to receive 100,000,000 in Gold per year from Tho people. But through the Agency of your National banking machinery you Are enabled to make the people perform nine tenths of your contract while you receive the entire Reward. Is not this a most outrageous robbery a swindle upon the people John g. Deshler president Franklin National Bank co Lumbus Ohio if people Are such do fools a to vote for men to put saddles on their backs spurs on my boots and then invite me to ride i am not going on foot. If it is robbery the people who sustain the party that authorized the robbery Are to Blamo and not the robbers. If this is not an overdrawn picture of our present system of National Banks i would most sincerely implore the owners of National Banks to Ward off such a train of evils As foil to the lot of Belshazzar As a consequence of his not taking the advice of his Prophet Daniel where he says of King let my counsel be acceptable unto thee and break off thy sins by righteousness and thine iniquities by showing mercy unto the by not availing yourselves of the Law passed by corrupt Congress you will save yourselves and your country from the disasters indicated by Tho hand writing on the Wall Bastia the French political economist uttered a Groat truth when he said when a government fails in Ith duty to organize and execute constitutional Laws such i failure opens Hie door for the introduction of All forms of corruption and plunder and that plundering will go on just us Long As plundering is allowed to be a profitable business. It is time that to made plundering unprofitable and i Hope i shall to so fortunate As to convince the owners of National Banks that this is their great Opportunity to secure to themselves to our country and to the world one of the greatest Blee sings that Evor foil to the lot of Man.  if this should come to pass i should to Able to say with one of old now o lord let thy servant depart in peace for Mino eyes have seen thy a Farmer candidate. It is not considered High toned by the old party concerns to be a Green Backer. The snobs Are not Green backers the swells Are not. But for All that we believe in Universal suffrage and Are willing to include these Little Fellows to believe the people Are capable of making a right use of the ballot. To believe in what it is fashionable among Money changers to Call the common it is hot this class or any of its representatives that Rob Banks or steal factories and railroads. It is not the common peo pie who steal the deposits of the poor in the savings Banks. It is not the common people but the Money lords who buy Legislatures and Congress. The venal argument of paid and hireling editors at the Beck of rapacious incorporate wealth would have their readers believe that it is not respectable to believe in nivers Al suffrage and greenbacks. We have More Faith in securing the happiness of the Many under the forms of Law through Universal suffrage and greenbacks than through corporations and Gold. We Hope every Greenbacker has come to the conclusion to stand up and be counted without touching the elbows of the old parties. No coalition fusion or View. Wre desire to say a few words to the alliances and your Many readers in fourth Iowa congressional District in regard to the Farmer nominee for Congress in this fourth District Hon. L. H. Weller of Nashua. We Are not moved to do so by any partisan Zeal or political prejudice for to belongs to a different political party than the one in which we train but we have become convinced by a careful away Luis of Tho character of the opposing candidate that the interests of Tho agricultural classes of this District and of the state urgently demand the election of or. Weller Thos. Updegraph the present member and candidate for re election has proven false to the interests of the prod acting classes and the contest Hore is practically narrowed Down to this Issue. Shall the people of this District have a True representative of their interests in Congress or shall the Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad Send Back their attorney there is no doubt that or. Top Digraph s sympathies Are with the monopolists and against the Farmer. His career in Congress conclusively proves this and his intimate connection with the Railroad is not nor cannot be denied. For this reason the entire anti Mono by influence of this District irrespective of party should be concentrated in favor of or Weller Tho Farmer candidate. Or. W. Is an intelligent and progressive Farmer a Man of the strictest integrity and undoubted ability and above All a candidate who stands squarely upon the Alliance and Western Rural platform. His whole past career has been one Strug. Gle with monopoly and class legislation and he has spent hundreds of dollars in carrying Forward the Reform movement. We Trust the Farmers of this District will not be deceived by misrepresentations of the partisan press but for onco at. Least cast their votes and their in fluence in the interest of their pock-6tbo.oks. For years past it has been the boast of politicians that they can vote the Farmers like cattle that the agricultural classes Porter to be represented in Congress by lawyers and Railroad attorneys and that they will not vote for Farmers when they have an Opportunity. Let every Farmer in the District and every Man interested in the cause of agriculture prove by his action1 in this contest that the politicians can Der chive them no longer that they have at last a Almed us to a sense of the responsibility that Devoles upon them As voters. A  the defeat of or. Weller would be a calamity. It would be equivalent to a Public declaration of the Farmers of this District that they Porter that the Vanderbilt and Goulds the Patent Sharks and barbed wire Mono lists should control the affairs of this government therefore lot every anti monopolist in the District work night arid Day from now till november to elect this faithful representative of their interests the Only candidate that has dared to come out and make the race As a special Champion of the producing classes. Julius in Western Rural.  instead of putting the Burden of taxation upon the poorer classes As is the Case at the present time it should be put upon the wealthier classes. A certain amount of property for instance As much As is now exempt from attachment and execution should be also exempt from taxation. It is hard enough for. A poor Man to get along at Best therefore his Load should be As Light As possible on the other hand it is enough for a Rich Man to get along anyway and there is no reason Why he should not carry the biggest Load. The world is divided into two classes the robbers and the robbed
