At present there is 4124 grains of
silver in a silver dollar, and it is just
as good as the gold dollar because
the law declares it to be a legal lender
for debt, and if there was only 100
grains of silver in the dollar it would
be a legal tender for ooe dollar. On
tbe other hand a thousand grains iu
the dollar would not mako it a legal
tender without the law; it would sim-
ply pass as bullion.

and then we would have to take care

I dared not eat anything more than would

physicians but nothing gave me permanent
relief. I had an iron constitution, or I
could not have stood the drain upon me.
“ In tbe fall of 18871 was so weak I could
not work. I concluded I would try Hood's

joy I soon found that It was doing me good

one point in tide treaty upon which

It was thought when the negro
rluves of the south were emancipated
that slavery was dead, at lca»l so far
as Hit United Stales was concerned;
bnt that was a mistake. Chattel sla-
very indeed is gone,' but there are
other forms of slavery which are just
ss absolute as chattel slavery and, in
some respects, far more profitable to
the masters than chattel slavery could
The muet despicable slavery that
has ever existed is political slavery—
rather, wc should say partisan slavery.
This is perhaps the only form of sla-
very that is voluntary ; a slavery that
au individual takes upon himself, of
It consists in that
blind |iarty prejudice that leads one
claiming lo be free to surrender bis
manhood to tbe dictates of a party.
It looses sight of principle and daro-
mors only for party Jt goes upon
the supposition that whatever tha
party does ia right and considers it a
mortal offense to vote against the
nominee of the party j and in order to
fix this idea of party fealty in the
minis of the jscople they are taught
by ti e leaden to believe that it is llie
highest treason to scratch a ticket.
Following this principle our present
representative boldly declarfft, is 4
public speech at Bivins last fall, ifeat!
ha would vote for a " vallar" deg J

of whatever kind.
Under the chattel slave system it
only included a few million negroes
as slaves. But our system wijl make
just as complete bjsvcs of both black
and white, in every thing except the
name aud personsl ownership.—We
arc only wailing for the secretary of
the statu to make the recoroundation
to the American congress.—
The above plan of the English Jew
bankers was carried out to the letter
and the industrial classes both black
aud while, arc to-day as complete un-
der bondage Uy the money power as
negro slavery ever was to his master.
Financial Slavery, absolute and com-
plete is the heritage of the American
people, made so by a succession of
treacherous law makers in Hut balls of
