6 Now suppose a machine is con' structed that, with the superintend ence of one man, will accomplish that same work in the same length of time. Instead of permitting the five men to continue to do that work by working one-fifth of the time, fonr of the five are discharged and the manu facturer reaps the advantage of se curing the work at one-fifth the former cost, not counting in this esti mate, of course, cost of power and wear and tear of machinery. But in too many instances the whole five men are discharged, and their places filled by one woman or one child at a greatly reduced wage. This cause, together with the large immigration that has been flooding the country under these conditions, will very largely account for our present en forced idleness. All of these unfa vorable conditions have of course been greatly aggravated by the con traction of the currency, by the inter est system, and by many other causes too numerous to be mentioned here; and we desire now to repeat that we ...

0 TI-I2Z3 .DVOOjauTB. LET US BE AS Oil TOGETHER Byllogiatio Arguments of John T7. Uorth of Heosho, Mo. Major Premiss When the seller offers to receive legal tender value for bts property, and he is so paid by the buyer, the buyer has not violated any principle of right or equity. Minor Premise In bargain and sale, the seller offers to receive legal tender value for his property. Conclusion Therefore, in bargain and sale, when the buver pays the seller legal tender value for his property, the buyer has not violated any principle of ri?ht or eqiity. The owner of property may offer to trade commodity for commodity, which is known as barter and trade. He may offer it for sale, in which event he offers to receive in payment for his property its legal representative, or money, without any reference to the value of the metal in the representative. The law reoog nizea these distinctions and simply en forces them. That value does not admit of a stand ard may be shown by the following argu me...

A UAH" Takes Desperate Ohano of Being Called a Fanatic Editor Advocate: There are men here in the west who extras, aye, justify the present administration in its finan cial course. They excuse on the ground that conscience is a creature of educa tion, and justify by Baying that educa tion has taught the president that the course he has pursued is the only safe and just coarse to pursue in the admin istration of this government.. It is my fondest hope and moot ardent desire that the people in their struggle for jus tice shall show charity for all, but while they should show charity they are not worthy the title of freemen if they do not demand justice. We have passed through scarcely the first of the four years of this administra tion, and yet in that brief time what dis traction of fond hopes, what desolation along the track do we see! Can men of heart, men who really feel the quiver and hear the wail of crushed humanity as it writhes in agony under the weight that has been cast upo...

Division Cjmmander Osborn has sent ont a circular instructing subordinate officers to convene new companies and muster them in March 3. The organ ization ia growing very fast. The State Banker's association held ita annual meeting ii Topeka last week. They, had a big time and adjourned without passing any resolutions con demning the national administration for issuing bonds. They probably forgot that. J. A.

My first visit was to Ness county De cember 23, last, aad I remained there during the holidays. The Advocate received a hearty support and ia very largely taken in the county. In com pany with B. P. Harmon I visited seven towns in the county, closing the meet ings at Ness City D member 30. The Peo ple's party of Ness county is alive for the occasion and is ready to meet any emergency that may arise. The old parties were completely routed out of house and home, aad like the wander ing Jew, have no place to lay their sore heads. I found Mr. Pamberton, the aged cri terion of the cause, "pushing the quill" on the Eoho, and is receiving congratu lations from his many friends for gallant work.

11 Functions of the State Communicated. What are they? Upon the answer which the masses give to this question the civilization of the future will be builded. The present system is transitory one. Social conditions are ripe for a change. We may hasten or retard the final result, but can not prevent its fruition. Change is the great law of life and ap plies to the social and politicalinstitu tions of men, as well as to their physical lives. It may be progressive or retro gressive toward the dawn or the dark ness. It may make the welfare of society the paramount object of the state or abandon all save the taxing power of government and leave to private enter prise (?) the destiny of our people. Shall the greatest good to the greatest num ber, or "each for himself and devil take the hindmost" be the guiding star of governmental action? Individualism and competition will lead the way to chaos and anarchy. Nationalism and co-operation will inaugurate a reign of justice thus leading to an ...

12 IT IS DEOSEED That Low Wages, Scant Work and Low Prices Are to Become Ohronio in the Land. NO. IV. Editob Advooatji: What does the re duction of the money volume of the country with consequent reduced wages and low prices mean? In the language of a friend, it means the creation of an inability on the part of debtors to pay their debts; and that the present in debtedness of the country shall become permanent. It means the eventual ownership of our lands by foreigners who will receive the proceeds thereof even as the Eigliah landlord has already im poverished Ireland by a similar process. It means that the ownership of all our railroads shall bo transferred to foreign capitalists, and their earnings carried abroad in a constant drain on our pros perity. For trade and transportation will fall off, as it has done already, and if it hardly payed to ship produce at prices of years past, how would it be with prices cut down one halt? Atd thus the railroads will beoome unable to pay inte...

18 CHEAP WHEAT. The Old Party Press Has Ho Encourage meet for American Parmtrs. Tha Chicago Herald of February 21 published an article which is accepted by many other papers aa an ultimatum on the wheat question. The Herald takes the bears' side and contends that the American farmer should calculate on low prices for his products hereafter. ad mi ting that the present low price is due to some extent to the "prevailing financial depression, essisted by over production." The cloven hoof of the European gold gambler is easily de tected in the article, from which the following was sent over the Associated press wires: "Wheat is prostrate in all the markets of the world. For weeks it has been a drug at prices unprecedented since spec ulation in farm products began. It has sunk below all low marks, refused to re spond to bullish influences, and gone begging at quotations known to be un der the actual cost of production.

14 HOW WE EFMEMBEE THEM. Tha Story of the Bright Boy and His Little Sledge Hammer. Editor Advocate: Mary of our great men have acme trifling incident or some little story connected with their livf s that we remember tbem by. Then little things associate themselves in onr miada with the men, and the mention of the one always calls up the other. Those are generally the things that the chil dren learn about great men, and they remember them together all their lives. We always remember Washington and the little hatchet story together, or when we think of Franklin we remember about him sending the lantern up in the olouds so that he could see what the lightning was made of. We more often think of Lincoln splitting rails or trading horses than we do of him uniting the north and south or freeing the slaves. When we ring up Patrick Henry we are always answered by "Give me liberty or give me death." When we let Blip, as we often do, our chance of being president for the sake of being right, ...

16 Co operative Creamery. There are a few lines along which it is possible and profitable fur farmers to co operate. One of these is butter-making. The establish merit of co-operative cream eriee, wherever the coodii it ab justify, has been recommended frequently in the col umns of this paper. They are successful enterprises when located in the midst of a sufficiently large cow population owied by dairymen with the true co-operative spirit, and placed in the hands of good business rxacapers. In an address on dairying, before the Ohio agricultural convention, Prof. W. I. Chamberlain said: "And what of the butter business? believe it is a better business ihan the cheese business iar better if we can have really co-operative creameries with good centrifugal separators and the sharing of profits (or even the purchase cf milk) on the strict) basis cf the Babcock test of but ter fats.

While it may cot result in any good to the country, it is still a source of gratification to the advocates of silver money that the Bland bill for the coinage of the eeignor ags and silver bullion in the treasury has passed the house of representative!. The struggle in the house ended Thurs day in the passage of the bill by a vote of 187 to 130, a majority in favor of the bill of 37. The special order to bring the bill to a vote waa adopted by a bare quorum immediately after the house convened. This broke the oppo sition of the filibustered, and they were powerless to do anything further to place an obstacle in the way of the bill. All the amendments offered to the measure by its opponents were defend, the one which polled the moat votes being Mr. Outhwaite's amendment to strike out the second section...

3 how can we know their doctrines un less we hear them ? We must not learn these new doctrines from their oppo nents alone. If you read only what the Pagans said of them you will think the early Christians were a bad lot. Every new theory should be learned from its advocates not from its ene mies. "But all other considerations aside, what does prudence dictate? These doctrines have been industriously spread among workingmen, and if so cialism be really pernicious, is it not the part of wisdom to drag it to light in such meetings as this, where so many workingmen are present, and while you have with you a speaker so able to combat such views ? I confess I have been greatly impressed with the strength of the able speaker's answer to our workingman orator, and, for one, I am quite anxious to see if he can reply to it.

First, let it be eaid, there was from first to last no thought of riot in any of our minds. Before leaving the monu ment to march to the state house, we followed our custom of stating emphatic ally to the people that we could only hope te win our causa by preserving the most perfect order, and exhorting them to this course. We did not seek to take the governor or the legislature unawares. On the previous day we had dispatched a letter to the governor, requesting him to receive the unemployed at the state house on Tuesday, and this letter lay upon his desk while we conversed with him. The people repaired in perfect quiet to the state house to petition. The greater part of the crowd halted outside to await the address of the governor. Mr. Green halgt made...

It is not uncommon in these times of general distress to see references in the great daily papers to the gen erous contributions of millionaires to charity f ands. The contributions of the Armours and of Chauncey M. Depew have been specially mentioned and dwelt upon, and the charity donations of the wealthy classes seem to be regarded as peculiarly merito rious and noteworthy The great multitude of contributions and of benevolent acts for the relief of dis tress are all unheralded and unknown save to those who, from unselfish and humane motives, are prompted to give and to do solely because help is needed and deserved; but if a mil lionaire gives the fractional part of a day's income towards the support of a soup house his generosity is pro claimed to the ends of the earth. While so much distress prevails, and so long as the dispensation of what is falsely called charity is the best method that society is able to dis cover for the relief of ...

7 Lessens From the Os&m Editor Advocate: Without a cor rect diagnosis of the patient's diabase; without. fall knowledge of the oiling one's past habita and symptoms, and correot judgment of the nature of the malady, no physician can intelligently prescribe the proper and effective rem edy. So in economic reforms, a correct knowledge of the cause of the evil to be corrected unequal distribution of wealth must precede any intelligent and effective action for the removal of such evil. It is the lack of such full and accurate knowledge on the part of the majority of the leaders of reform movements that causes the lack of union and coherence and the lack of valuable results. Such knowledge should have been furnished the people in the census of 1890, a census costing the people a vast sum of money and apparently to be of very slight practical value. It was not the original intention of Mr. Harrison's administration to have the census include anything in reference to the wealth and its...
