AND TOPEKA TRIBUNE. OFFICIAL PAPER OF THE PEOPLE'S PARTY OF KANSAS. VOL. HI. NO. 49. TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, JULY 27, 1892. 01.00 PER YEAR. ATTENTION, OLD SOLDIERS. To the Editor of Thb Advocate: I would like to aak through the col ums of your paper a favor of each of the old soldiers who were present at the convention that nominated W. A. Harris for congressman at large, and that sec onded his nomination. The favor that I would ask la, that they would send me a brief history of their army life. How long they served, how many engage ments they took part in, etc. My reasons for making this request will be made known through The Advocate later on, but will say at this time that I wish to refute a statement made in Cuba by a prominent Republican of Washington county concerning the nomination of "Mr." Harris. It is a very good plan to take some of the statements of these pa triotic Republicans, these guardians of our American institutions, and use them for campaign purposes. P. T. Ba...

FINANCE THE 8UPREME ISSUE. Speech of Hon. J, B. Weaver la the House of Representatives, May 9, 1879. 1 (Continued from last week.) Now, I will give another reason for opposing national banka. The act of June 20, 1874, now on our statute book, and the law of the land, provides that any national bank may at pleasure re duce ita circulation in whole or In part . Thua thee Institutions are clothed with the right to contract the currency at their will. The act of January 14, 1875, known as the resumption act, provides that they may Increase the currency without re gard to limit. Thus there is one act which allows them to "bear" the market whenever they please and another which enables them to "bull" the market when they please. They can contract the cur rency when they see fit; and in this way they can control the value of every day's labor and of every product In this coun try. Applause. I say it Is the climax of Iniquity in legislation that a great gov ernment like ours, of forty-seven...

TJI22 AJDVOOA.TZB, 3 from General Grant, who was twice hon ored with the executive chair of this na tion. It is dated February 22, 1878, and is addressed to Judge Long, of St. Louis, and was first published in the Globe-Dem ocrat, March 30, 1878. He says, speak ing of the silver bill: But if I were where I was one year ago and for the previous seven years, I would put a moet unqualified veto upon the repu diation bill, called silver bill, if it should receive the vote of congress. I fear it has passed, but hope, if so, all business men in the country will work to defeat its operation by refusing to make contracts ezoept to be paid in gold coin. I do not know what he meant by "an unqualified veto," unless he was going on the principle that if you want to shoot a long way you must pull the trigger hard. Laughter. Now, there has been great talk on this floor about "revolution," and for my part I deplore such agitation to a degree that la almost akin to horror. It seems to be a privileg...

T2332 -AJDVOOA.T33, 5 HYPOCRISY OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY ON THE SILVER QUESTION. The Republican platform "com mends the wise and patriotio steps already taken by our government to secure an international conference to adopt such measures as will insure a parity of value between gold and sil ver for use as money throughout the country." To begin with, the object of the con ference is an absurdity and its ac complishment an impossibility. There has never yet been a time when such parity has existed and there never will be, and the pretense of a pur pose to come to an agreement that will insure such parity is a sham and a fraud. It is an insult to the in telligence of the American people, by whom it is well known that money is not a natural product, but a creation of law. As Henri Cernuschi, French delegate to the international confer ence of 1881, well observes: The value which gold and silver might have as merchandise, lfjno legislation adopted them as monetary masses, Is not a consti...

The yeas on the adoption of this reso lution were 136; the nays were 154. The affirmative vote was made up of 117 Democrats, ten Populists and nine Republicans. The negative vote was formed of ninety five Democrats and fifty nine Republicans.

TBOE ADVOOATffi 11 PEOPLE'S PARTY NATIONAL PLAT FORM. Assembled upon the one hundred and sixteenth anniversary of the declaration of Independence, the People's party of America, in its first national convention, invoking upon their action the blessing of Almighty God, puts forth, in the name and on behalf of the people of this coun try, the following preamble and declara tion of principles: The conditions which surround us best justify our coopera tion; we meet in the midst of a nation brought to the verge of moral, political and material ruin; corruption dominates the ballot box, legislatures, congress, and touches even the ermine of the bench. The people are demoralized; most of the states have been compelled to isolate voters at polling places to prevent uni versal intimidation or bribery. News papers are largely subsidized or muzzled; public opinion silenced; business pros trated; our homes covered with mort gages; labor Impoverished and land con centrating in the hands of capit...

A representative of the Watchman vis ited Mr. Field at his Virginia home In Orange county one day this week, and spent a few hours under his hospitable roof, south of Washington ninety-seven miles; the picturesque little town of Gordoneville Is located almost under the shadows of the sun capped Blue Ridge. The railroad seems skillfully to thread Its way Into the town through a gorge, and a beautiful valley, with it its match less verdure and dainty farms, breaks upon the vision. A short drive of three miles on a historic dirt pike, over which Jefferson and Old Hickory staged their several ways to Washington to assume the great office of president, and the home of Mr. Field Is reached.

VOL. HI. NO. 50. THE GRAIN INSPECTION FAKE. . Republican papera are now vielng with each other as to which can get up the heaviest campaign humbug. In the latest the Wichita Eagle does up all the others with a foolish story started In Missouri, to the effect that the attorney general of Kansas had lately given an opinion that the Kansas City grain In spectors might do the work for the state inspectors of Kansas. Whole columns of this stuff has gone through the daily papers, yet Attorney General Ives denies emphatically that any such opinion ever went out of his office. On being asked If he had been called upon for any expression re garding the subjects of grain and in epectors, he re-called the fact that Attor ney Waggoner of the Missouri PacLSc road had complained that Inspectors had got into the habit of breaking seals and leaving cars open to the Injury of the grain, thereby causing damage to the company and the shippers. He asked for an answer and received the following which Mr...

COUNTY UNIFORMITY REDUCES THE PRICES Of BOOKS. To the Editor of Thz Advocatx. Please allow me a voice in the question of uniformity of text books through the columns of your valuable paper. Hooka county adopted uniformity last year, Our committee adopted the bock in meet general use. The results of such adop tion are. a reduction in the price of S3 per cent We exchanged the rejected books formerly in use at one-half the value of the books adopted, which, .in most cases, was more than they were worth. Our teachers have accomplished more this year than ever before, which result must come from having the uni formity. Then it is almostjlmpossible to use to advantage a course of study with out a uniformity of text books. It matters not to me what the advantage may be to the book companies, but I am satisfied from one year's experience that the beet Interests of our schools demand auni formltyof books. We have waited long enough for the legislature to take action on this matter. And if th...
