Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1922 edition. Excerpt: ...That's the crooked point. If I man belongs when there is fighting to do, he belongs when there are laws to be made. If he is forced to draw lots for the bitter, he ought to be permitted to draw for the sweets. That's fair dealing. A fair deal can not be refused and a fair government obtained. Election is nothing but a contest, a fight. The rich man's tools enter the fight, and with the help of the rich man's money and his newspapers, they win. It isn't even a fair fight. Do away with the fight. Divided into parties the people will always lose. United, the people can easily win. Let all fair minded citizens unite upon the one point, a fair method of getting a representative law-making body. Draw lots. There will be time enough to talk about the laws we want when we are in the legislature where the laws are being made. It's sharp medicine. People who have been educated through the rich man's publication to play his game, election, may find it hard to take. But it is the remedy. It will hit the spot. Let rich men have only a smell of it and see the face they'll make. THOMAS KEEFE. Staples, Minn.-A RHYME Oh where! Oh where! is the money gone? Oh where! Oh where! can it be? In the great bank vaults of the money trust, lt's as plain as plain can be. Oh where! Oh where! is my credit gone? Oh where! Oh where! can it be? It is doing time with the great com-bine, That controls all industry. _ Oh when! Oh when! will the men unite? Like the limbs of an old oak tree? And the people arise, like a bolt in the skies, And demand their equity? Oh where! Ob where! will the parasite be That caused this misery? lle will dance a jig like a drunken pig, In the smoke of eternity. ZACHARY T. CLAY. Thornton, Idaho. BANK EXPERIENCE Editor National...
