THE MIDDLE CLA8S UNITE6.
Under this heading L. E. Hildebrand,
an Intelligent writer in The Missouri
Socialist, reviews the Allied People's
party movement from the standpoint
of the uncompromising Socialist. As
one who studies conditions, Mr. Hilde-
brand sees in the new movement the
great opportunist Socialistic move-
ment, which is the immediate antago-
nist of the revolutionary Socialist, of-
fering, aB it does, a program that will
be accepted quicker than the regular
Socialist program by the worklngmen.
Mr. Hildebrand, in the course of his
essay, writes: "The middle class of
the United States is now truly repre-
sented in the politics of the country
since the convention of reformers at
Louisville, Ky. The Democratic party
has been loosely termed the party of
the middle class, but erroneously so;
that party was always dominated—it
is, in fact, yet controlled by men of
great wealth. The middle class, aside
from agriculturists, expressed nothing
politically until the recent growth of
the public ownership of public utili-
ties sentiment. The demands in the
old People's and Populist party plat-
forms related primarily to the farm-
er's interest. But this new 'Allied Peo-
ple's party' marks a union of rural and
civic middle class interests.
"Socialists can depend upon seeing
the former two million voting strength
of the farmers' old movement not only
regained, but probably doubled by 1904.
That such a prospect is before us, and
that votes from the working class will
do it, becomes apparent when this new
party's attitude toward trade-unions,
labor legislation and other questions
of immediate interest to the workine;
class is considered. The pld People's
party was little in evidence in the in-
dustrial centers because it ignored
questions relating to those communi-
ties. In the meantime, the middle
class of many cities, like St. Louis and
Chicago, have taken up the public own-
ership idfa, have carried their city
elections with a public ownership

candidly state their class interest. If
they did that, then the Socialist would
be spared the necessity of unveiling the
(and he is not a bad man either as out-
information goes) to promise a consti-
tution to his people. The Coq Rouge
is loose in Russia, and while he will
not hurt a woman or child, his
coming will do a little awakening. The
love of freedom and independence in
the United States will conquer all the
corrupting influences of money.
"We are well pleased with the Al-
lied party, and will do all we can to

We want a good clean ticket, County

As the power of federal government
rests alone in securing the political
powers of the States, and as these pow-
ers must be secured by the voters with-
in their respective States, to these vot-
ers alone must we look for the accom-
plishment of this work.

never to be forgotten. So be of good

John C. Little, Baty, Tex.
"No Populist can afford to be with-
out a good Populist paper, and the
Mercury is the best I know of. Now
the new movement Is set on foot and
every Populist ought to read a good

When the People's party of a Western
State had the political power to make
a shorter work day legal, true to its
middle class interest, it declared itself
in favor of a shorter workday at all
kinds .of employment except farm la-
bor. This proposition showed the in-
sincerity and hollowness of that mid-
dle class farmer party's professions of
friendship for the wage worker. Their
discrimination in favor of the employ-
ers of farm laborers defeated a shorter
work day law. In the meantime the
voting wage earner lost valuable time
voting for enemies."
Of course it. must be understood
that Mr. Hildebrand writes from the
view of a political antagonist, and not
as a friend. His reference to the Pop-
ulist movement and its attitude on the
eight-hour question might cause a
point of antagonism among laboring
men unles they understood the situa-
tion. The eight-hour workday was
because the enemies of civic labor,
themselves understanding farm condi-
tions, sought, to kill It by attaching
the same conditions to farm labor. The
conditions which surround the farm la-
borer are altogether different from
those around the city laborer. He is
governed by seasons, over which laws
have no control—by climatic condi-
tions, over which none but Jupiter may
prevail. The farm laborer, therefore,
must work long hours at harvest,
while between seedtime and harvest,
and during the winter months his hours
are uniformly short and his services
nominal. A shower of rain drives him
from the field for a few hours, but no
time-keeper stands by him lo dock his
wages. Hence the farm laborer, when
the climatic, conditions are favorable,
the undebatable superiority of the Al-
lied People's party movement over that
of the Socialist party. A distinctively
farmer's party cannot succeed; a dis-
tinctively wage-earner's party cannot
win; but a party bullded on principles
common to both, making common the
cause of the toiling farmer and the toil-
ing wage-earner, fighting with equal
vigor and sincerity tho battles of the
workers in the mills and the mines
and on the farms, is founded on the
only basis which can possibly bring
sucess in the struggle against capital-
ism; and it was to form such a party,
to unite all struggling elTort Into one
harmonious whole, that the Louisville
convention was held and tho broad
foundation laid upon which the Allied
People's party was founded.
That there would be dissenters we
did not doubt; that there would be
those who for this reason or the other
would try to create discord and dis-
trust the harmony of the movement
we could not fail to expect; but that
the ultimate end will be the overcom-
ing of the carping critics, that those
whose selfish motives would destroy
this grand movement would be set
aside in the long run, and their very
names forgotten, we have always be-
lieved. and are now certain. That the
common intelligence of mankind is too
great to allow those whoso love of po-
sition ever to be in command of an
"awkward squad," or those who are
secretly in the service of the powers
of capital; or whose hearts are too
faint to enter the righteous conflict,
to turn them from the overshadowing
truth at the right time, we have always
felt. Hence, we who were at the birth

to predict its marvelous growth—for,
to reuort him, he says:

of the old farmers' movement not only
rejoined, but probably doubled by 1904.
That such a prospect Is before us. and
that votes from the working class will

A Cross Clerk
Is a rarity. For the most part the young woman behind the
counter is smiling and obliging, though her back hurts, her
side pains, or her head throbs distractingly. The wonder is,
not that a clerk is sometimes irritable, but that she so rarely
shows irritation, when every nerve is quivering and she hardly
knows how to hold her head up.
The cause of this suffering is not far to seek. It grows out
of some derangement of the feminine functions or disease of
the delicate womanly organs. Until this deranged or fli« °ttd
condition is cured there will be no relief from pain.
The nervous condition, headache and weakness which are
the results of irregularity or a diseased condition of the wom-
anly organs, can be entirely cured by the use of Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription. It regulates the functions, stops en-
feebling drains, strengthens the nervous system and promotes
the general health of the entire body.
There is no alcohol contained in "Favorite Prescription,"
and it is entirely free from opium, cocaine and all other nar-
cotics. It is a temperance medicine,
prepared of vegetable ingredients, es-
pecially for woman's needs, and cannot
harm tlie most delicate constitution.
Do not be deceived by the claim
"just as good," which Is sometimes made by dealers who
seek to make an excessive profit by selling less reputable
wares. I)r. Pierce's Favorite Prescription has cured hun-
dreds of thousands of sick and suffering womcu. It makes
weak women strong and sick women well.

that the Frankfurter sausages vended
