At each county seat appointment, it
is expected that each member of the
Peoplejs party County Committee will
be present for consultation. This is
all-important Every friend of reform
should circulate these appointments
and use every endeavor to Induce the
people to attend these meetings.
A SOCIALIST'S MISTAKE.
Some of our Socialist brethren are
very poor politicians. They are also
very unfair. And, still more,* they arc
so intolerant that their very zeal for
Socialism is its worst obstacle and im-
A case in view is that of our zealous
young friend, Jas. H. Arnold, of Lou-
isville, who is a brainy and able expo-
nent of his cause, but whose tactics
to advance the same, will, in our judg
ment, obstruct rather than aid, in that
M. J. Cullar, the efficient secretary
of the People's party committee of
•Laurel county, and a representative of
the miners of that section, being, as all
ail true populist are, a student of and
believer in the fundamental principles
of socialism, as defined by Webster,
wrote to Mr. Arnold for information re-
garding the movement of the Social
Democracy. To this Mr.Arnold replied
at length, and from his letter we se-
lect the following sentences:
"Let me beg you not to waste a mo-
ment of your time on the ignorant, in-
competent and corrupt Populist party.
It is worse, if possible, than either the
Republican or Democratic parties. I
was a memebr of it once, and I know
it well, and its managers, and not one
in ten of its leaders is honest."
And then again:
"The intelligent and honest Popu
lists of this city have all become So-
cialists, and the others have dissolved
into their original elements."
As the Social Democracy of this city
at the present time consists of only a
half dozen or so members, it appears
that, according to ^friend Arnold, the
intelligent Populists of Louisville are
very few in number.
The Social Democracy can only hope
to build on the foundation laid by Pop-
ulism, and it seems to us poor general-
ship to defame the layers of that foun-
When the People's party first began
its work of agitation, there were few
people in this country who believed
in socialism, even to the extent of pub-
lic ownership of public utilities; now
this doctrine is accepted by nearly all
intelligent citizens. The seed sown in
the schoolhouses by Populst speakers,
and by the Populist press, has brought
forth this fruit.
Therefore,to charge that the Peoples
party is worse than the old parties,
that its leaders, who, through sacrifice
of time and money, enduring poverty,
ridicule and all manners of hardships,
have carried on this work of organiza-
tion and education, are dishonest, is
far from the truth.
Populists do not wish to engender
bitter feelings between their own poo-
pie and the Socialists, for there Is
great affinity between the two schools
of thought; but they certainly shall
and do demand fair treatment. Tbey
are neither dishonest nor ignorant;
they know what they want, and are
voting for it. They feel interest in the
growth and progress of Social Dem-
ocracy, but not to the extent of admit-
ting themselves fools for having so*n
Laurel Co., Ky., at a recent session.
"We, the committee, of Laurel coun-
ty, in conference assembled to consider
a letter of request received by our sec-
retary from James H. Arnold, request-
ing him to abandon the People's party
and organize a Socialist branch in !h:s
county, from which the following is a
" 'Let mo beg you not to waato a
moment of your time on the ignorant,
corrupt and Incompetent People's par-
ty. It is worse, if possible, than either
the Republican or the Democratic par-
ties. I was a member of it once, and I
know it well, and its managers and
not one in ten is honest.'
"Resolved, 1. That we endorse the
action of the People's party it Frank-
fort, July 27, and ple-lgs ourselves to
do all we can for the nominees of said
convention, antf make our ilfcht on

the saints at Omaha and Cincinnati,
neither turning to the right nor to
the left, but kiv.-p'ng right in t.he mid
die of the plain, straight-forward road.
"Resolved 2. That we commend the
manly action taken by our gallant he-
ro, Jo A. Parker, for the poor people
and humanity at the Buffalo confer-
ence ,and we recognize in him a politi-
cal Moses to lead us out of the wilder-
ness of misery and degradation forced
upon us by the two old parties; an<l,

"Resolved, that we commend the Na-
tional Reform Press Association for its
firm stand by principle, and in ler.ting
its thoughts expand and its defense of
suffering humanity, and in not allow-
ing its thoughts to be narrowed down
behind the creed of trade unionism;
and be it further
"Resolved, that we unqualifiedly de-
nounce both the old parties."
