Entered at the Logansport, Ind.,poBto£Bce as •eooDtJ clasd mall matter, »e provided by law. IT Is understood that all the Republican congressmen from Indiana eicept Mr. Johnson, of the Richmond district, want the civil service law repealed. •NEITHER Senator Allison nor Senator Cullom takes much stock In Secretary Gage's plan of reforming the currency. They are quite confident that the money question can be safely let alone. DON'T It seem stranee that a great party, entrusted with the control of the country on the issue of maintaining the nation's honor, should first turn its attention to re-establishing the spoils system? Those two great statesmen, Charley Landis and Majah Steele, are charging through the halls of congress, demanding the repeal of the civil service law. "THE time to guard against corruption and tyranny," said Thomas Jefferson, "is before they have got hold of us." The American people are now suffering from the corruption and tyranny of the trusts. They are suffering on account of legislation designed to enrich the few at the expense of the many. They have been multced by the adoption of a policy that makes all government obligations payable In gold in violation of the terms of a contract which specifically makes all government obligations payable in either fold or- silver. We have not guarded against the encroachments of organized greed and the common people, those who receive no government privileges, other than life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, must bear the consequences. Had Jefferson's foresight been made the guide of action, the trusts and the gold conspirators would not have been permitted to pursue their schemes of robbery unmolested. As to Gold Democrats. It may have been observed that during the campaign of 1896, the Pharos had no word of censure for those who refused to support toe nominees of the Chicago convention. lo politics as in religion, the constitution of our country guarantees to each individual—to every voter—the right of opinion and belief. Under Its present management the Pnaios has never been prescriptive or intolerant. It has never tried to drive men into sharing Its belief. Many men who had heretofore been steadfast In party allegiance broke the political ties of a half century in the recent campaign. This applies to Democrats as well as Republicans. It Is, perhaps, good for the country that such changes occurred. The prejudices of the war period have been swept away and in the coming campaigns voters will be actuated by what the/ deem may be best for themselves and their fellowmen. If the gold Democrat, who voted for Palmer and Buckner, honestly believed that the adoption and perpetuation of the single gold standard will prove beneficial to the human race and bring greater blessings than the double standard, he voted bis con- Tictiona, and perhaps made many sacrifices In doing so. The Democrat who voted for McKinley as a more direct means- -of securing the perpetuation of the gold standard, wanted that which he voted for. Not all Democrats, however, who Toted for the gold standard did so from motives that were unselfish. The Democratic party lost, and perhaps forever, the support of such Democrats as the perpetuation of the single gold standard will further enrich. It lost the support of those Democrats who have been benefited and enriched by special privileges granted by law. It lost the support of many bankers and manufacturers who expect to receive favors from the government. With them self interest is stronger than their sense of justice and they •will permanently ally themselves with that party which gives promise CH' granting them most favors. The time is coming and it is not far away when the plain people, the producers of wealth, will be arrayed against a party of plutocrats. In the first battle between the people and the money power, those who now calmly and disinterestedly re- Tlew the events of that campaign must note the fact that all the forces of concentrated wealth were arrayed on the side of the single gold standard. Every corporation, eTery trust, every idle holder ol Idle wealth, every recipient of a fabulous income. The forces of organized greed can never again mutter the Totes they did In 1896. The man who reviews NEKVOUS PKOSTBATION. A New Jersey Woman Expresses Her Gratitude to Mrs. Pinkham for Relief. you kindly aJJow me," writes Miss Mary E. Saidt to Mrs. Pinkham, "the pleasure of expressing my gratitude for the wonderful relief. I have experienced by taking your Compound? I suffered for a long time with nervous prostration and general debility, caused by falling of the womb. It , seemed as though my back would never stop aching. IcoulA not sleep. 1 had dull headaches. I was weary all the time, and life was a burden to me. J sought the seashore for relief, bat all in vain. On my return I resolved to give your medicine a trial. I took two bottles and was cured. I can cheerfully state, if more ladies would only give your medicine a fair trial they would bless th e day they saw the advertisement, and there would be happier homes. I mean to do all I can for yon in the future. I have you alone to thank for my recovery, for which I am Tery grateful." —Miss MABY E. SAIBI. Jobstown, N. J. the events of the last campaign must be Impressed with the methods resorted to secure votes. In no campaign In American history was the heartless power of corporations more scandalously used. Many men .employed by corporations were terrorized. Debtors to banking corporations were threatened with ruin. Men employed by railroads and manufacturing concerns were threatened with loss of employment in case they voted their convictions. Not less notorious was the plan of corrupting voters by money contributed by the plutocrats of the east. The money of tue privl- leged classes was sent into every doubtful state and was used by corrupt men in every conceivable way known to the bribe giver. And now what has the gold Democrat got in exchange for his vote? The national honor has been maintained . Coin bonds will still be paid in gold. A tariff law^has been enacted,that, as a trust feeder, has never been equaled. Hawaii with its.tnongrel population is to be annexed. Those brave Cubans who have made uch a gallant struggle for liberty and independence are to have no encouragement. A non-interest bearing debt is to be changed to an interest bearing debt and made payable in gold coin. The tax on national bank notes is to bs red used one-half, and these banks are to be given full control of the business of Issuing paper money In such quantities as the business needs of the country, ia tne judgment of the bank presidents, may require. A commission has been sent abroad at great expense to induce England to help us get rid of the single gold standard and to help restore to the people of this country the money of the constitution and the money of our fathers—gold and silver. These are the most important matters accomplished or proposed. We doubt if any nonest.disinterested gold Democrat is satisfied with the record. If such there be, their conversion to Republican theories of government has been accomplished and henceforth their support will go to that party whose theories of government are diametrically opposed to those advanced by Jefferson and the fathers of Democracy.

The great English scientist, Huxley, said the best start in life is a sound stomach. Weak stomachs fail to digest ifood properly because they lack the proper quantity of digestive acids (lactic and hydrocblorie) and peptogecie products; the most sensible remedy in all cases of indigestion, is to take after each meal one or two of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets because they supply in a pleasant, harmless form all Che elements that weak stomachs lack. The regular use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will cure every form of stomach trouole except cancer of the stomach. They increase flesh, insure pure blood, strong nerves, a bright eye and clear complexion, because all these result only from wholesome food well digested. - - ' ' Nearly all druggists sell Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets at 50 certs, foil Bleed package.
