10 THE SUNDAY TNTETI DCEATT, JUKE 5, 1892. CAMPAIGN FAKES. The Reform Party Resor's to Bogus Documants. THE HAZZARD CIRCULAR. Both Peffer and Weaver Repudiate .Them. A Silly Fake In the Dal'y Press ExposedHard Up for Political Capital. For party whose stock in trade consists so Isrirely of professions of purity and reform for itself and indiscriminate and wholesale charges of corruption against its euemies, the people's imrty can be highly commended. It has been in business a little over two jeurs, and yet in that short time it seems to hare adoptHl all the "corrupt tactics" that required twenty-five years for their opponents to learn, and have gone them several points better. While this party of purity and rightcous-neon has many and various methods for "working" the people, the favorite one is the "fake ciroulur" of fous matter gotten up for publication through the alliance papers. In fact this reform par.y has resor J to to much of su h rot thnt it might properly be called the "fake party." To give a history of or to run down and expose all the bogus dispatches or circulars that are daily used by these ''holier than thou" Iwople would require more space than Thb Tbb Ocean ooild devote to the subject, but there are one or two that we will not let asa as several of our readers have requested information respecting them. The first is that old chestnut, the "Haz-eard circular,'' which is used in nerly every alliance speech and piece of literature in the country, and is made the basis for the silly declaration that the war was the result of a financial conspiracy lietween the capitalists of this country and England. We quote fioin the "Seven Financial Conspiracies," a pamphlet largely u.iixl in KanMts and Nebraska in IK) to iuMatne the people and prove to them they were being robbed dai'y by "the infamous old parties. This pamphlet was practically the alliance textbook in their campaign, and when our renders glance nver the following IUfO taken frm it they will see a sjiecimen of the rot that was fed to the Western farmers behind closed doors for eight months b.fore the election. We quote: When the Ufnd of civil war was desolating the ltnti. when ill'' great heart of the Nation throbbed in arony, and the p-ople were bowed in mourning, then a bund of iueD. with murder-on puriMKK'tf, went, ri t into tne bnttlenrld. hut into the very sHuctunr.. f our country, tlm holy place of government. nni fh'r under the cu: of patriot and benefactor, .ili.itfeil the mdilter, and plotted the nioit diabolical scheme of robbery tliat ever blackened a historic pace.

Ve are now warring to get ttie Secretary id the Treasury to make his recommendation tot'on- f'res. It will not do to allow the greenback, a t is called, to circulate a money any length of time, for we cannot control that. That intelligent, wide-awake men nlmuld believe such stuff neems strange, ami yet it is true. The pertinacity with which the alliance speakers and writers sfitck to the text soou made them accept without investigating for themseivwj. Any one who w ill -it; re id the "circular" will Hud enough internal evidence to satisfy them of its t ogu chime er. But to see w hat the alliance le id ts hud to say about it The Intkk e.n addrese- d a letter to a number of them afki.ig for further information twaring on its authenticity. We give only a few of the lending oues, the balance being of same tenor : , DK3 rfoiNES. Iowa, April 2S. Tn the Editor. Your of thn'iTtrh int. netvcHl. 1 know nothing of the origin of the celebrated Hazzurd circular, and for that reaou have never, to my recollection, mado ue of it either in mv writing or speeches, not being able to etablih lieyond dispute its authenticity. 1 am al ays careful to avoid making statement which I can not verify ou a momeut notice. The circular i said to have been yi.ued and sent to the banking fraternity of tin country shortly after th" commencement of the war of the rebellion. I have no doubt of its genuineness, as the end iK)en of in the circular are just such as any fur-eeiug economic or financier might have readily foreseen. Whether ever written or not it is now certain that the conditions foreshadowed in the circular have in fact takon place. With high regards 1 am respectfully yours, J. H. VKAVK.. WASHrxOTO, I. , April 2. To the Editor. Ton are in error when you quoto me a having Bsed the '"Harzard Circular" in my speeches and writings. I never used it because 1 had doubts about its authenticity. However, men have told me that they saw and read It at the time of its circulation. Among them is a Mr. S. Maltbjr, whose address is Washington Ci'y, No. MS L. street, 8. E. William ParrER. Wichita, Kan., May I. To th EditorSo, I have not a copy of the Hazzard circular, nor do I know who has one. I believe it is true, hew-ever, every word of it. If it is "bogns" as yon intimate, then its author was a prophet or the near relative of one. Ma by K. Lease. Mr. George C. Ward, of Kansas Ci:y, one of the ablest writers in the People's party, referred us to Mr. 8. A. Norton, of the Chicago KxoretM, whom he said had a copy. Mr. Morton replies to an inquiry as follows: To t he Editor. Some fifteen years ago I had an original "Husard Circular." Not attaching any special importance to it at that time. I presume 1 lost it, though it is possible I may still have it somewhere in my possession. Have searched for it several times late years, but so far without soeeeea. I have Dever publicly stated that I had one, for I did not care to be given as an authority upon the subject without the document to back me up. I am now on track of another "Hazzard, ' and hope to seenre it, Should I succeed, or should I ran across the one I lost, I will ezhibit to you with pleasure. S. F. Norton. April SI, 1(4)2. When Mr. Norton finds the. "other Ha-sard," Ths Ixtxb Oceam will take pleasure in running down and exposing its "faky" character, becaus if any such circular was ever printed, and it probably was, it was a campaign document gotten out to deceive honest people just like it is now doing, and is on a par with the following "fake," which is not quite so ancient but which in fifteen yean from now will probably be doing the same kind of service as Mr. Ilaz-sard's circular is now doing. "Fake" No. 2 is an article published in the Chicago Daily Press on March 22, 1892, under the startling head of "The Imperialism of Capital." It ia really a sil ier fake than the "Hazzard" circular, and yet "it is now going the rounds of the alliance press with sensational blood-curdling headlines which were enough to scare any - man that they would not disgust. The article purported to be a dispatch from Wall street, "ew York, and after commenting on the condition of the financial world at that data last March closed with the following: Out of all this disorder a better and sounder sondition of affairs will be developed by the imperialism of capital, bat the process of reaching that basis will inevitably be slow, tedious and costly. - We must proceed with eaution and a-nard well every move made, for ths lower orders of ths people are already showing sigus of restless commotion. Pradence will therefore dictate s policy of apparent yielding to the popular wilhuntil all of our plans are so far eonsaminated that ws can declare om designs without fear, of any org ised results nee, Ths .

At the eomiag Omaha convention. to be held Jul A onr men nut attend and di rect rts movements, else there will be set oa foot saeh antagonism to onr designs ss may requirs force to overcome. This, as the present time, would be prematures ws are not yet ready for such a crisis. Capital must protect itself ia every possible manner, through eombinatioo and legislation. The courts must b .sailed to our aid. debts mast be, .collected, bonds and mort gages foreclosed ' as rapidly as 'possible. When, through process of law. ths ; common people have loaf their homes, they will be more-tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of irov- ernmeut applied by a central power or imperial wealth under the control of leading financiers. A oooole without homes will ant ouarrel with their rulers. History repeats itself ia regular circles, this truth la well known among our principal man now eugaged in forming an imperialism of capital to govern the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept ia a con dition or political antagonism. The question of tariff reform must bo nrged through the organization known as the Democratic party. Ami the question of protection, with reciprocity, must be forced to public view through the Republican party. By thus dividing the voters we can set them to expand their energies in lighting each other over questions of no importance to us, except as tether to lead the common herd. Thus, by discreet action, we can secure all that has been so generously planned, and thus far suo- cesAiuuy accomplutuuo. Comment is hardly necessary, for a person who would for ons moment swallow such ri iculoua stuff would hardly listen to reason. but to get at the bottom of the matter an Ixteb (k'EA representative called at the Picm oftioe and found that said article did appear in the fren of the 22nd of March but it was in a department which had been devoted to-third part politics, and was sdited by one lhoaias W. Giyruth, of Kansas Xitjr, and under his name, he being a radical IVople's party man. That no such dispatch ever came to the paper from New York or any o trier place, and that uilrutn either manufactured it himself or bad some one do it for him; that it was a "fake" pure and simple, and had no foundation, in fact, and et that article is going the rounds, and is being used daily by reform speakers and writers. While this is to be a "Campaign of Educa tion, it also ought to be one of decency and common fairness. MILITARY DEAD SHOTS. Army Authorities Encouraging Competition In Klflc Practice. In any war of the future in which the United States may become involved her armies will be liberally supplied with trained sharpshooters, the terror of officers and artil lerymen. During the late war the value of his class of marksmen was demonstrated even by the crude material which formed Berdan 'a sharpshooters and other similar organizations on the Union side, and the famous Mississippi and Arkansas squirrel-shooter riflemen in the ConteJerate armies. The large record of casualties among officers of high rank on. both sides was due in a great measure to the unerring aim of sharp-shooters concealed from view in their covert abode. Cieuerul O. W. Flanler. chiuf of orduauce. United States Ar ny, informed a Washington f'oj' reporter 4hat be was taking much in terest in the subject of marksmanship in the regular army ana had formulated a plan for bringing that branch of the service up to a high state of proficiency. Appreciating the m-censity of reliable narpn:iooters in the battles of the future, the governmeut is not at till lax in its efforts in that direction, and target practice ha now became the rule ruther than the exception. To eucouraire and s imulate the soldier bys in their efforta before the bull's-eye of the army target and in tiring at dummy figures on imaginary skirmish lines, the Ordnance Department has provided a series of handsome gold, silver and bronze badges as trophies and dist.nguished marks in the army. to oo cotnpeteu lor by privates and uoa-com-miaMoned officers. fuere are ma.wve go d badges for division and rvgiuieutal contests; silver badges for the cuvalry and infantry, and neat individual latdgev, each of which becomes the personal propvity of the winner, to keep for all time. $1 e. miens of tlies handsome designs are exhibited in a casj at O.-nerat Flagler's office in th War Department. The saari shooter badge is a silver Maltese crone, pendant from s bar, on which is the inscription, in plain blast tetters, Sharpshooter." Another design is a silver bar uscriixrd, "Marksman." Tne difference be tween the former aud latter is that a sharp shooter must earn his laurels over a "1,000-yard ride, range, while the marksman ia euuired to attain a cer.ain average over a .SOU-yard range. The shariiehooter in each regiment makiug the best sjore, up to a certain percentage, is then eutit.ed to entet he content lor the army badge, a handsome. co.ntiy and massive gold design. 1 neee badg.-s were all designed by Ueneral Flayer and are nmuulao.ured at the Kock Island Arsenal at much less cost than the work could be done by contract. General r ittgler a idea of toe future sharp shooter organization in the army, and which w ill, no doubt, soou be adop ed by the gov ernment, is to select tho shooters in each legimont who h ive won trophiej and form them uitj c liipiiniee, sj that when occasion urines there companies could be combined, tortuiug a large uurpaboo:er contingent for use as required. "At the first battle of ChancellorsviUe," said the tieneral, "a Confederate sharpshooter concealed iu a largo tree a considerable distance Irom the Union headquarters killed General Whipple as be was walking aloug the road at a comparatively safe distance from the enemy. A big Minnesotan, who stood over 6 feet high and whose smiling face was as innocent looking as that of an infint. had been watching the puffs of smoke from the Soutnern soldier's rifle concealed in the tree-top. Hi had ulno observed the sad havoc among his brother officers and men, who had become victims of the rifleman's unerring aim, and determined to drop the Southerner. He could not see the concealed foe, but commenced bring through the branches of the ties, up and down, following parallel lines, mucn after the fashion of a farmer planting a held of corn. i Fmally one of his shots caused the rifleman in gray to come sprawling from the tree in squirrel fashion, and turn-iug to me the giant soldier from Minnesota said in the blandest manner, with a perfect baby smile, I fotched him, sir.' " In the library of the War Department is a photograph taken after the desperate battle of Gettysburg. It shows a dead Confederate sharpshooter away up in the locks at Devil's Den, where he had constructed a secluded little fortress by building up bowlders between a niche in the rocky face of the Den. From this well-protected spot he had in perfect safety been picking on Union officers and men during the entire day, until his tire becoming so destructive a battery was ordered to direct several solid soot at his temporary abode. One of these caused a spliuter of stone to strike the rifleman on the head with fatal results. The photograph was taken by Gardner af er the battle, and the sharpshooter was fountlin his last sleep with a peaceful smile on hisface, ahile the rifle with which be had done the damage was lean-up against toe rocks. Three years afterward the photographer again visited the rifleman's las . home. His skeleton was still there, and the rifle, almost eaten away by rust, leaned against the rocks, while on his company roll ani at home he was marked, no doubt, as "missing." THE EAGLE AS A STMBOL The Westmister Review: The history of that bird as the symbol of the Roman Empire, and of other powers claiming succession to the same, is here pretty fully stated. In Europe there are still the eagles of Austria, Russia and Germany, besides others pertaining to minor principalities. An able writer remarks that ,fowin(r to the restoration of ths Western empire during the rule of the Byzantine Caesars, the world has never since (tho time of Augustus) been without ons or two Emperors of the Romans. Th present Austrian Emperor, though holding scarcely a province of Adrian's, is ths direct successor of Charlemagne, who was crowned in Rome Emperor of the Romans, the sixty-ninth from Augustus.'' The Csar of Russia bears the double-headed eagle, which was assumed by the Grand Duke Ivan Basilovits- who in 1472 married Sophia, daughter of Thomas Pale-ologua and niece of the last Emperor of By-saatium, Constantino . XIV. . The German Emperor reigns over some Roman provinces and bears a ingle-beaded eagle with the crown of Charlemagne. The single-heafled eagle, assumed with the imperial title by the first Napoleon Bonaparte, sets forth the union of the whole Roman Empire as the tradi tional aim of his family. - All this strikingly harmonises with the admitted fact of the oon- , tinuanoe to the present time, though in a divided state, of the Roman Empire, an 1 suggests thoughts as to what may be the . ulti- mate meaning of ths words, "Wheresoever : the body . ia thither will the eagles be gathered together." - , nABBISOX AN P THE COLORED MEJf Omaha Bee,; The attempt to disparage President Harrison in the respect and confidence of the colored men of the country has failed. It was a reflection upon the intelligence and the gratitude of that class of our ci'izens to assume that it would not fail. The colored men who take an interest in political affairs, and the number of such ia large and steadily increasing, watch with keen and ssal-ou4 interest the courss of political leaders toward their race. They have the intirmiies common to humanity, but they cannot be deceived as to who are their friends and who are not. They know what has been done for them and can estimate as accurately as any. body the mo ives that prompted it. They are a grateful people and do not forget those who have treated them fairly and have honestly endeavored to secure them justice under the laws. When an attack was recently made on President Harrison, in the House of Representatives, charging that he had not given the colored race adequate recognition in public affairs, it was resented by the one colored member of that body. Since then prominent leaders of the colored race have ex Dressed themselves regarding the President, and such Congressman Cheatham, and ex-Congress- I man Lynch emphatically declare that I' nt Harrison is in every way worthy of the confidence of the colored voters of the country. There is but one colored man of prominence who has proclaimed opposition to the President, and that is John M. Langs ton, of Virginia, but dissatisfaction with everything politically has long been a chronic condition with Langston. It is his way of securing attention to himself. It is possible that he may le able at Minneapolis to infect some of the colored delegates with his disease, but there will be stronger men of his race there to counteract his influence. No man who is familiar with the public record of President Harrison will question for a moment his sincere solicitude for the interest aud welfare of the colored race. He has never failed on any proper occasion to demand for them civil and political justice, and no public man of to-day has advocated their cause as citizens, entitled to the same rights under the law as are accorded to white cittzons, in stronger or more explicit language than has been used by the .President. o fnr as th) matter of giving recognition to the colored man in public affairs is concerned, if that be the proper criterion by which to judge of a President's frieudly interest in the race, it can be claimed for President Harrison that he has shown more consideration for the- colored race than any of his predecessors. It is obviously the purpose of the opposition to the President's reaomi nation fcr bring all the influence they can command to bear Uon the colored delegates to Minneapolis in the in'erest ol some other candidiite. but if they accomplish anything they must find another argument than is involved in the charge that President Harrison has failed to show a proper consideration for the colored citizens of the country. That charge has already been overwhelmingly refuted. A fcUIU'ItlSK FOIt IHE.VE. New York Rreordrr: "Miss Irene," he said. as the fair girl came tripping down to the parlor fifteen minutes late, "I have a painful duty to perform." The word -i cut like a butcher's knife through a side of prime Chicago dresned beef. A'l the light went out of her (150 engagement ring. "The duty I have to perform," he went on. slowly, "is one. Miss Irene, that will make this evening long remembered. A great tale of woe w ill always rise in my heart when I think on it." She toyed mechanically with her peroxide of hydrogen bangs. "Mia Irene, he continued, while I was wai ting in ths parlor I happened to pick up a volume, on the center table. All the flumness died in ths girl s golden banjzs. "That volume. Miss Irene, tells me that it is folly to longer buy you peanuts and ice cream- It was a dagger in her heart. "Sre me, spare met" "Never. Now it is too late.

" "It is too true, it is too true : she cried fall ing in an interesting trance on the rug. lhen you will marry me, after all, dar ling?" she purred, as she came back to life three hours later. 'Yes, indeed." 'For, you see, as I explained, the book be longed to my i-ia'.er. Don't hold me so close. ss my breath catches so dreadfully here in the dark 1" THE TEMPLE OF BAAL. There rises a huge wall 70 feet high, inclos ing a square court of which the side is i40 feet long. Part of the wall, having fallen into ruins, has been rebuilt from tne ancient ma terials, but the whole of the north side, with its beautiful pilasters, remains perfect. K-t the visitors enter the court they stand still in astonishm ent at the exi inordinary sight which meets their eyes; for here, crowd! within those four high walls, is the native viilaga of Tadmor. It was natural enough for the Arabs to build th 'ir mud huts within thesa ready- made fortifications, but the impression produced by such a village in such a place is indescribably strange. The tern nle, so to speak, is eaten out at the core, and Tittle but the shell remains. iJut here and there a fluted Corinthian column or group of columns, with entablature still perfect, rises ia stately grace far over the wretched huts, the rich, creamy color of the limestone and the beautiful moldings of the capitals contrasting with the clear blue of the cloudless sky. The beet view of the whole is to be obtained from ths roof of the naot. hicb, once beautiful and adorned with sculp: ure, ia now all battered and defaced and has been metamorphosed into a squalid little moeque. To describe the view from that roof were indeed a hopeless task. High into the clear blue sir and ths golden sunshine rise the stately columns ; crowded and jumbled and heaped together below, un- toucnea oy tne giaaaening sunoeams, un-fresbened by tne pure, free air, lies all the squalor and wretchedness of an Arab mud-hut village.
