Editor Independent: It might be well to state
that l have full assurance from the adjutant general
of Illinois of the use of" the new arsenal at Springfield
for the People's party national convention, July -1,

ample provision is made for that event. The arsenal
is a magnificent building with all modern improve-
ments. It will be nicely seated, arranged and de-
corated for the occasion. Hotel prices are from 81,26
to $3 per (lax. There are restaurants where good
meals can be had from 10 to 25 cents. I am acquaint-
ed with all the hotel proprietors and can say their
character is first class. All the hotels are within one
and a half to three blocks from the arsenal.

Every arrangement for the comfort and pleasure
of our Populist friends have been anticipated and
provided for while they are in the city. - Illinois
Populists will do the right. thing and do it nicely.

We have at hand a copy of “The Great Issues,"
being a collection 01‘ reprints of seine editorials
from the Philadelphia American from 1897 to 1000.
The author of the articles published is the Hon.
Wharton Barker, who was the candidate of“ the
Middle-of—the-Rcad People party in 1900 for the miice
of president. The statesmanlike erudltion are as
pertinent today as they were four or eight years
ago, for, unfortunately, the economic situation has
been little changed—is even worse today than ever
before—and the prospects are not very bright for its
betterment in the near future. “The Great: Issues"
is a valuable acquisition to any political library and
ought to be read and studied by the great mass of
the common people. It is a book of nearly 400 pages
and is substantially bound in both cloth and paper.
It can be secured of the publishers at the following
prices: Cloth—one copy $1.00, ten copies, $7.00,
twenty copies $12000, fifty copies, $25000; paper——
one copy 50 cents, ten copies $4.00; twenty copies.
$7.00, fifty copies, $15.00. Address Wharton Barker.
118 So. Fourth St., Philadelphia, Pa.—Tlie Colorado

To the above we wish to add that every Populist
should read “The Great Issues” and we may go
further and say that every old party voter ought to
read it also, though it would be a little dangerous
to his present political faith, we believe, to do so.—

Cyclone Davis‘ great speech at the court house
last, Sunday on Bible defense of Prohibition was a
great effort and received the endorsement of every
man and woman. There is no doubt that these great
speeches are worth hundreds of votes in the election
today for prohibition—The Watchman, Clebourne,

We have read the populist speeches of Cy—
clone Davis for scveial years with satisfaction;
we were one of the fcw populists of this city
who called upon him when he visited this city
SCVcl‘al months ago. Davis tCycloiic) did not
make a public speech here. i do not think that
he came here for that pruposc; at any rate, if'
he is a prohibitionist, he held his pcacc upon
this subject while licrc. '

Probably he was overwhelmed at what he
beheld here—a strong Populist city of 140,000
of a population, and 2:0 saloons in it, and the
two strongest Saloon Wards, were always the
two strongest Populist Wards.

This is a condition, which surpriscs many
people whose minds have been warped by pro—
hibition sophisti‘y—that “political morality"
and saloons are an impossibility. Scuttle has
demonstrated the falsification of this prohibi—‘
tion ideal, and it is worthy of remark that the
most strenuous disruptionists, and traitors to
the Peoples" party of this city were those who
stood ready to advocate prohibition and wo—
man suffrage at every opportunity. Clark Da-

etfeminatcs” would be in clover there, and if

Allurders, suicides, and divorces; three of the
greatest crimes known, are so common in Sc—

It is true, that the worst crime of the thrcc‘

of the other two, that are not yet legalized.
But we shall find a justification of legalizing
them before long. "Extravagant Education,"

chances that if her lies should reach here even,
that they would escape detection. 1 want to
tell the Kentuckians that l have lived here for
thirty-seven years, and know whereof I speak,
and that “\'\7omaii Stifl'i'agc' has been agitated
during nearly the whole of this time, owing to
the great activity and remarkable ability of a
political tcrmagent by the name of “Dunni—

frage" amendment was voted upon in Oregon
was in June, igoo, and it was defeated by a
very decisive vote. There are too many vir—
tuous niasculiiies in Oregon to permit this “cf-

state. 111 1902 a bill was again presented to
the Oregon legislature for the purpose of
again presenting the "\V'onian Suffrageq

it was overwhelmingly beaten in the legisla—
ture This will no doubt settle the fate of the
political ambition of the "bearded effeminatcs”
and their she peers in Oregon for the next

If some commonplace woman, had made the
lying assertion. about the "woman suffrage"
election in Oregon, she might have been mis-
taken, and we should have treated her to a
gentle rebuke: btit for a woman like Miss Lau—
dc Clay. who holds a very high official position
in the rctrogrcssivc of "bearded cffcin—

such a barcfaccd falsehood at a public meet—

she cannot presume to tradc upon the gal—

The foundation of anarchy is bred and born
in "eifeminacy." l challenge any student tthat
is worthy of the name) to refute this. All his—
tory shows this!

In Roman history this is shown. in the
I’rench Revolution this was emphasized in a
most remarable degree. in the Common—
wealths of America, where "woman suffrage"
is in force, there, “anarchy” is the strongest—
Colorado, Kansas, ldaho, \Vyoming. Greater
disorders have prevailed in these states, for
several years past, where man's authority has
been undermined by a womanish sentimental—
ity, which has been encouraged by that arti-
tnzial ideal of fools; of equality between the
sexes. There is no such thing as equality in
nature; consequently no such a standard can
be set tip and maintained by fool bipeds, whose
minds have been warped by education. We
had "woman suffrage" in this 'l‘erritory once,
for a short period, and it was the most disor—
derly, and disgraceful portion of our history.
Judge Jones of this city used his prerogatives
in the interest of good government when he
declared the law to be unconstitutional; but
the "bearded effeminates" and their demoral-
ized peers, the crimminally chaste Sabines, and
"race suicide" Amazons, having little to do but
eavil, they succeeded in getting this degraded
ideal again before thc'people, as an amendment
to the Constitution of this state, but it was
overwhelmingly beaten at the polls. Why?
it was beaten because we had it on trial before,
and the experience we had, caused the people
to repudiate it. But a scene of "etfeminacy
and anarchy” was permitted to exercise itself
in the Superior Court of this city last week,
when a brazen young woman, a limb of the law
in petticoats, appeared in Court with acase,
supported by her father, P. P. Carrol—this pre—
fix P. P. signifies Presumptious Pat, or Plug
Hat Poltroon. This Court operator, and ”case"
manipulator has the most infamous record of
any man that has been permitted to retain his
position as a member of the Bar in this state,
hence he seeks the protection of the ”netti-

coat,” (which degenerate fools always consid-
er as an emblem of purity) and he assumes the
“plug hat” in order to give himself an air of
respectability. This, then is Presumptious
Pat, the Plug Hat Poltroon Anarchist, who
was Major Ginneral Commanding of Doc Jor-
dan’s Patriot Army, with Bill Van '\r\’aters,
Bill Larkins and Joe Young as his Aides.

Ye gods, what a gang of°exemplers we have
to endure. it was quite natural for this gang
of anarchists to dock to the standard of Doc
Jordan and for the Plug Hat Poltroon to be
their Major Ginneral Commanding; Now bear
in mind, this “anarchistical” display took place
in Seattle ten years ago, when the undomesti—

cated “political petticoat" was raging upon the‘

streets of Seattle, and “pimps and maques"
were used to keep honest men out of People‘s
Party Conventions; thus, this party became
“rotten before it was ripe”, and
pieces from its own “moral rotteness,' whose
knavish leaders had been permitted to enhance
their own personal interest, by the aid, and
through the organization of the "political pet—
ticoat” into “woman‘s clubs." Does anyone
think for a moment that "woman's clubs" are
going to be a greater power for good, under
the management of Dr. Matthews, than they
were under Jean Way? The demoralization
will be the same in either case.
