THE FINANCIAL SITUATION.
Four thousand tone of silver bul-
lion is the amount purchased by
the Sherman act of 1890, for which
the government issued its treasury
notes payable in cein. Are they
paid in silver coin when presented
to the treasury for redemption?
No! What are they paid in?
Gold coin! Why is this done?
Because none but the rich want
them redeemed, and when they
present them they demand gold.
Why? Because they can drain the
treasury of every dollar of gold
coin in it, then the government
will be unable to pay off the bonds
at maturity, because they are now
payable in gold ! These gold bugs
can force the government to bor-
row their gold at a premium or
force them to re-issue gold interest
bearing bonds. As a matter of
fact the United States treasury is
now being drained of its last gold
coin and will consequently soon be
unable to pay the interest on the
Eublic debts. Then these gold
ugs will be able to turn their dis-
honest pennies by loaning the gov-
ernment gold at a premium !
Why don't they coin this 4,000
tons of silver ?
Because the plutocrats, foreign
and domestic, don't want it done.
Who is ruling the United States,
What is their object ?
To make themselves million-
aires, while they make the people
How do they manage to do this?
By the votes of the people !
THE NICARAGUA CANAL.
Senator John Sherman, from the
committee to whom was referred
the bill proposing that the United
States loan to the Nicaragua Canal
Syndicate one hundred million
dollars recently, made a unanimous
report favoring the loan. The
names of the senators composing
this committe are:
John Sherman, Ohio.
Wm. P. Frye, Maine,
Joseph N. Dolphe, Oregon,
C. K. Davis, Minn.
Dan'l W. Voorhees, Ind.
J. R. McPherson, N. J.
J. W. Daniel, Virginia.
David B. Hill, N. Y.
The Mercury suggests that re-
formers cut this out and preserve
it in their scrap book for iuture
Under competism the misfortune
of one is the means to the fortune
of another. Indeed a fortune to
one is made up by misfortune to
many. This gives society the ap-
pearance of peaks and plains.
Frozen peaks of wealth and great
plains of poverty. These are as
inseparably connected in one, as in
Shall liberty be regulated bv law,
or law be regulated by liberty.
This is the qustion. In Ireland
and Russia liberty is regulated by
law. A veritable hell exists in
both. Law regulated by liberty
will change the hell to heaven.

80 SAY WE ALL
I'm an old smoker, and
have at one time
or another tried all
the different Smoking
Tobaccos, but for a good smoke Bull Durham
beats 'em all.
A leading characteristic of Bull Durham has always
been the hold which it takes on old and fastidious smokers.
What its excellence first secured, its uniformity has always
retained, and it is, therefore, to-day as twenty-five years ago,
the most popular Smoking Tobacco in the world.
Get the genuine. Made only by
Blackwell's Durham Tobacco Co.,
DURHAM, N. C.
canton siM cyme
We were the first manufacturera to Introduce STALK CtTTTKKM, and have kept
abreast of the times with modern I1IPBOVEIIENTN. Tbey are a valuable Im-
plement, preparing the ground for plowing, and leaving that to be turned under
which ENRICHES TUB SOIL. The Canton has Spring on front end,
connecting with lever, thus rmtfoving thm Jerking from
horses' necks, also giving knives a striking motion. This excellent feature
is found only in the Canton. It has HIGHEST METAL WHERLS, J
insuring LIGHTEST DRAFT. No Axle through centre of Keel to
clog up with trash. Made with 6 Knives, so as to cut stalks short.
Others have the same number of knives, but they are not properly
proportioned, therefore cut the stalks same length as
our 5 knife, W LOOK OUT FOR THEN ! <jU
Other points of excellence given in circular, mailed
free to any address. We also manufacture

tivators, Disc Harrows, Tricycle Sulky and Gang
