We do think it necessary to make a very lenetby effort to illustrate the inconsistencies that appear in this marvellous document. We shall present a few and loave its general character to the annly.-is of those who read it. no sweeping a denunciation of a system as is contained iu the above utterances would naturally lead one to think that the head of the nation cial sytem, in connection with the money power tools who are pat in office , by them, would find no diffi culty in effecting an arrangement by which the bonds would again be redeemed before the expiration of the time for which they were issued, and the depletion of the "gold re serve" could be effected by the nse of these bonds as well as by the nse of greenbacks. We do not say this would be done, but it could be done and doubtless would be done if the money speculators should find it to their interest to have it done. Again the President "complains" that the annual interest charge on the bond ed debt is already eleven millions of dollars annually, yet he recommends the issue of five hundred million dol lars more of bonds. If this should be done and they bore the same rate of interest as the bond now out standing the annual interest charge dicate, all combine to stamp the an- rorc"" septum. thor as a hireling tool of the money The Populist are making a power and an arch-enemy to the straight, consistent and commenda interests of the great mass of Ameri- ble record in the Senate and their can people.

Why do they not do itf As clear an an swer as eould be made to this ques tion can be found in the "Three of a kind" circulars published elsewhere; but we may state that the reason is the fact that the issue and circula tion or a large volume or money would make money the n'rvant, not the master of the people; and it is the plan of those in whom the law now vests the power to issue these notes to make the whole country subject to their demands, and those in power seem to have a care that only such amount of money as will accomplish this shall be isvued.
