The members of the club in the title of this pamphlet were Civil War veterans. They were supporters of William Jennings Bryan and his efforts to promote the unlimited coinage of silver. Populists believed that the free coinage of silver would increase the money supply and thus the wealth of the working class. J. J. Miller, the president of the club, was a veteran of an Ohio regiment who had settled in Kansas after the Civil War. This address may have been given at a meeting of the club at 420 Kansas Avenue on Friday, September 11, 1896.

Date: 1896
