Mr. Tilton, Oxford, Kansas, discusses the reasons for the plight of the laboring class and offers principles and suggestions on page 16 and 17 that he hopes will be incorporated into the Alliance and labor related political parties. The suggestions include a minimum wage, government control of railroads, uniformity in the costs of mortgages, and that a four-fifths majority be required for the passage of any laws in the state or national legislature or those lacking a four-fifths majority need to submitted to the people for a majority vote before they are enacted. The pamphlet reflects the beliefs of many Populists, which was emerging as a political party.
