L. 1. * W. FOMING THE LINES. DEMOCRATIC FORCES BEADY FOR BATTLE. Ana They Are Eager for the F»T— The Slocan of 16 to J. Will Be Heard in Every concessional District In tbe United States. The Democratic managers intend to inaugurate the congressional campaign *t an early day, says Senator Jones, national commander o£ the allied forces of Democracy, while vhe Republicans are quarreling and fighting among themselves over Cuba, the money question and civil service reform, the Democrats are ready to make a determined •flort to capture the next house. The reports received from all parts of the country are of the most encouraging character. According to these reports, the Democrats are practically certain to gain eight seats in Illinois, seven in Indiana, five in lowa.tour in Kentucky, five in Maryland, seven in Michigan, tour in Minnesota, twelve in New fork, six in Ohio, five in Pennsylvania und two in West Virginia. This makes a total gain of sixty- three and it is not expected that the Republicans will gain more than four seats, making the next Democratic ?ain sixty. According to these figures, the next house would stand: Republicans, 183; opposition, 71. It is not doubted that the Populists and the silver Republicans will act with the Democrats In the next congress. In organizing the house the Democrats would be allowed to name the three srincipal officers and the chairmen of all the important committees, while one of the house officers und a number of the less important ihairmanships would be given to the Populists and Silver Republicans. "So far as the state of Kentucky is joncerned," says Representative David Highbaugh Smith of Hodgensville, Latue county, "the Republicans have had ••heir day in court down there and Slave shown themselves to be unworthy of public confidence. The administration of Governor Bradley is so disastrous a failure as to amount almost to a disgrace. The men who havs leen sent to Washington by the Kentucky Republicans during their lease af power have not made a favorabln impression on the country. The old commonwealth is back again in the Democratic column, and there it is likely to stay. At the next election for members of congress the Democrats will carry every district except the eleventh and the delegation in the next house will consist of ten Democrats and one Republican. Silver will be the battle cry all along the line. Ths platform will be the same in every district. H will be such that there will be no need for fusion. The candidacies in various districts will be distributed among tbe Democrats, Populists and Silver Republicans, according to the vote polled in 1S96. of the race are homeless "We maintain that every maa la entitled, to as much of the earth's (surface as saay be necessary to supply the wants of each and all. The first great natural right of even' humnn being— the most essential, the most vitally important of all with which man is most endowed, is the right to as much of the food and other necessaries of life as will make existence not only endurable but a pleasure anil a blessing. This right is as old as creation— it is covered with man's wants, and is as insilienable as life itself. "If a. man has a right to live, he: has a right to a place,. a home in which to live, and a right to all the neceisary means which go to make life a benefit., '"Man has just as much right to the means of living as he has to life; the one grows out of the other, and he can as justly be divested of the one as of the other. "He who robs another of the means o! life, as certainly commits a murder as. he would have done had he thrust a dagger into his heart." Bovenae From Miscellaneous Sonrees. The treasury report in relation to receipts a.nd deficits is a curious study. | But to discover its true inwardness does not require an excessive gift of niathematical ingenuity. The report shows that there will be the following deficits for the years named; For 1897 $18,500,000 For 18SS 25,000,000 For 1899 21,600,000 Total deficits for 3 years. 468,100,000 How much would these deficits have been if the government had not been able to sell three or four job lots of railroads? In the treasury report the receipts from railroad sales are classed under the head of "miscellaneous receipts," with sales of public lands, conscience fund collections and similar i items. For the last year the "miscellaneous receipts" amounted to less than $1.000,000. Including 1897 the "miscellaneous receipts" are reported and estimated as follows: ForlS97 * 913,120 ForlS9S 24,000,000 For 1899 25,000,000 Wall Street Reformers. Democrats in the house of representatives have placed themselves on record as opposed to the retirement of the greenbacks. They will oppose, undoubtedly, all attempts to change the legal interpretation of the word "coin" so that it shall mean gold instead of gold and silver. They will also oppose the issuing of gold bonds. The absurdity of attempting to pay a debt by increasing the obligation is an invention of Republican financiers, and will be repudiated by the conscientious and conservative Republicans. Indeed, there are many Republican representatives who will oppose bond issues and "coin" interpretations from reasons that are neither conscientious nor conservative, but simply political. These men. will be candidates for reelection in 1S9S, and they dare not go before the people with a record of having voted for or advocated such measures. This fact shows conclusively that currency "reform" is a class issue: is a scheme gotten up for the benefit of bondholders and gold grabbers. If it were not, why should Republican representatives fear to take it before the people? Currency "reform." as advocated by the attorneys of Wall street, will make no progress in congress during the present session, and this Is equivalent to saying that it will never make progress. It Is more than likely that tne next noose will show a large increase in Democratic membership, and, knowing this, the gold clique is anxious to push measures now. These efforts, however, will be in vain, and in 1900 the people will have an opportunity to inaugurate true reform with the inauguration of a Democratic president.— Chicago Dispatch. Total "miscellaneous receipts" (mostly from railroad sales) ?49,913,120 To ascertain how mueli the Dingley deficit would have been in three years but for the windfall from sales of the (Pacific railroads add the amount of the deficits to the amount of the railroad sales, as follows: Deficits from 1891 to 1S99, inclusive ?6S,100,000 "Miscellaneous receipts" (mostly railroad sales)..,. 49,913,120 But for receipts from railroad sales deficits would have been $118,013,120 This would have been the enormous deficit confronting the treasury at the close of 1899 but for the receipts from railroad sales. On* Way to Wipe Out Deficit. We observe that quite a number of moral republican editors are pointing with pride to the gratifying increase in the internal revenue receipts. If an impetus can be given to the general drunkenness of the country the grand old republican party will be rescued from the hole in the treasury and th« ship of state will avoid the rocks. TIMELY ADVICE. 'Do you belong to a silver club? If not, why not? The battle for YOUR PROSPERITY can never be won without your aid. Are there' any gold bugs in YOUR vicinity?

Those who are inclined to the opinion that the Chicago platform is too : radical for a Democratic platform, should read the following, taken from' an address issued by the "Young.De- mocracy" at a convention held in Philadelphia fifty years ago, a cop? sf which is in the possession of Col. S. F. Norton of the Chicago Sentinel. As jood as is the Chicago platform. com- | Bared with some others, it might go j considerably further and still not: re*ch the demands of the democratic' party fifty years ago, which were as toUows: ' "We demand that on« man shall not kwafter b« allowed to hold unlimited of «cr«s of th« common ia- villa fci»n4r*d« u4 tfcoif In the congressional campaigns every Democratic candidate for congress must stand on a platform that indorses the Chicago platform in every particular, as well as the financial issue. It is the duty of every Democrat to make a personal neigft- bor-to-neighbor campaign ia behalf of the Democratic platform.

It* Mission to Tear Awny tb« Mask ot j Bllndnexg—The Cry ot Anarchy SUall QXot Estop the Grand Work That 1« Now Golan On. Agitation, as the word is used in politics, is discussion. It is investigation. There ne:ver, so far as I can recall, has been, an instance in history where honest men have said, "Do not investigate." Every thief and ever}' murderer is an opponent of investigation. King George the III. tried to prevent people printing criticisms of his acts. Today in Russia the plainest question of human liberty cannot be discussed in the public papers. In Germany the editors are being constantly thrown, into prison merely because they reason on public questions. The enemies of sound money try to slur the discussion of the money question by referring to it as agitation. The people may chew the old rag o£ protection till they become poor as Lazarus, and these wise financiers do noc call it agitation. To th« pensioner of a special privilege, public discussion becomes dangerous agitation whenever public discussion becomes dangerous to the special privilege. It is possible, by continually calling eviii good to secure in the mincls of many the attributes o£ good for evil; and thus the highest reasoning .may sometimes lose a just prestige by being sneeringly called "dangerous agitation." The misnaming of things, the sneer, hypocritical can't, the assumption of phenomenal piety, havti been in all ages ohe peculiar antics whereby fraud has sought through the channels of legislation to retain or secure sipecial privileges which it was unable, or too cowardly to secure by violence. The money power by collusion with the so-called agents of the people, now enjoys the special privilege of having their bonds paid in gold. The law as it now stands gives the people the right to pay oft this indebtedness in that metal which is the cheaper and easier to obtain. Even though the law is clearly and plainly on the side of the debtor, the money power has always so far succeeded in getting one of their own agents in the treasury department of the government. Mr. Gage, a banker, is now in that position. These agents of tbe bauks have for years served the money power instead of the people; and so it occurs that even in violation of law, these bank agents, at the behest of the creditor, pay out the dearer metal. Can it be wondered that those enjoying this special privilege cry out against agitation? Is it to be wondered at that they dread investigation? Their hcipe is in arousing prejudice. Thev dare not arouse reason. Reason is their foe. Reason aroused, like a mighty lion, would burst through clouds of abuse and into the field of their silly sophistries, and tear from the eyes of the weak the wool of deception; and then the goddess of special privilege, though entrenched behind stolen millions, would die among her worshippers. In this lies the cause of such persistent ranting about anarchy, idiots, lunatics and wild-eyed fanatics. Truth was never ia the history of the world defended, by such agencies and weapons as are now being used by the money power to defend their dying cause. No, the "silver craze" is not dead! No, the people are not going to permit Wall street to take the money question out of politics. As incomprehensible as it may be to some, a policy may be inaugurated vhich cannot be carried into execution except through suffering and -Misfortune of the masses. The money power now has such a policy in more or less successful operation, and as rapidly as possible it is perfecting it. Wall street is a regular hatchery of panics and financial tricks—a sort of Pandora's box of troubles. The money question will be kept in politics until the birds of discontent go home to roost. A little of the discontent of the people will be transferred to Wall street; a little of the prosperity of :he money lender will be transferred to the money borrower; and the great highway of the transfer will be tha road of politics.—John Williams.
