VOL.V. NO. 43.) $1.00 A YXAK. f iitaof People's Party. WHICH COSTS THE MOST? Facts and Figures Not Mere Assertions. C726,103.34Saved to tht State by the People's Party.

Any Person Challenged to Disprove any Statement Herein Contained Populists Can Run the State Gov ernment on $1,000 000 Annually, Which Has Cost Over $1,500,000 Annually Under Republican Rule. Much has been eaid in republican newspapers charging the People's party as being an extravagant part, and that the last legislature was the most expen sive in the history of the state and so on with other similar charges ad infinitum until it is harder to tell our readers what republicans have said than what they have not said against the Popu lists. I have observed one universal feature about all of their "assertions" and that is they are never guilty of ac companying the assertions with the figures and records, preferring to make a big noise and by throwing dust...

Elder, Princeton, Kat.: Dear Sib Your kind letter referring ma to the speech of Hon. Binger Her nana, of Oregon, ia which be states that "the French assign ata were a legal ten der," came duly to hand. Yc u ask me to say whether the statement of Mr. Her mann is true. I comply with your request with much pleasure; but the question cannot be answered in a single sentence. Technically, the assiccata were legal tea der; practically, Siid, in effect, they were not SnjclaUy considered, the answer ia notlEstlafactory. Bat when we under stand the case, every one will see that "the various governments of the French revolution," as Sir Archibald Alison calls them, had no power to confer the quality of legal tender on money in any true and lasting sense. At best, they could only attaoh to it an edict of the convention which happened to ...

THE ADVOCATE. 3 was neither counterfeited nor over issued. Now let us mark the following resets of a struggle between hard and soft money in time of war. It began in 1797 '98." It closed in June 1815 at Waterloo. Napoleon and hard money went to the wall. Napoleon went to St. Helena as an exile. England and her soft money triumphed. England became mistress of the ocean, she acquired an empire which encircled the globe and 'dictated the policies of the continent of Europe. Mr. Alison ascribes these successes and tri umphs to the paper money system of Wm. Pitt, and says that without it "Eng land would have long ago became a province of France." In an eighteen years struggle between hard and soft money the soft beat the hard with all the advantages on the other side to start with. And it may be stated further, in order to make the case more emphatic, that in "iSiS-GOi money utterly failed on the continent of "Europe- .Napoleon was carrying everything before him. The allies were falling ...

SEORETABY OF AGRICULTURE. He Tells the Tamers to Keep Out of Pol itics. J. Sterling Morton undoubtedly thinks that he has made a speech which will teach the farmers to keep out of politics. J. Sterling, it will be remembered, is the Nebraska railroad attorney whom Presi dent Cleveland transformed into a secre tary of agriculture. He was not supposed to know a thing about agriculture, but he was a Jvery smooth politician and a very tricky lawyer, just such as Mr. Cleveland wanted in his cabinet. Secretary Morton went to Chicago the other day loaded with a speech. The speech was prepared for the benefit of the World's Agricultural Congress, but as it fell like a wet blanket upon that body, he afterward repeated it to the na tional commission of the Columbian ex position. Here it met with a more hearty approval than before the assem bly of farmers, and the aristocratic cabi net member probably went away feeling that he had caved the country. Hera is an extract from the address: "Everyt...

c THE ADVO Ons. THE UNION PAOIHO BAILBOAD. The Lata Appointment of Beceivers a Con tinuation of the Steal. The Union Pacific railroad system is in the hands of receivers. The history of this corporation has been one of fraud and plunder from its inception, and the indications are that another chapter is about to be written which will likely be a fitting conclusion to the infamy of those that have preceded it It may not be amiss at this time to direct attention to some parts of this history; and there is no better place to look for it than to the report of the Pacifio railway commission, appointed by the president of the United States April 15, 1887, pursuant to act of con gress of March 3 preceding. This commission submitted its report June 17, 1888, and from that report we ex tract the following: The government loaned bonds (to the oompanies) bearing 6 per oent. interest, payable in thirty years, to the amount of $64,623,512, and stipulated to pay the inter est on these loans upon ...

EAILEOAD BAMBUPTOIES. A small pamphlet has come to our table entitled, "The Rights and Wrongs of the Railway Question a Collection for Popular Reading of Facts About Railways Which the People Ought to Know." It is edited by H. P. Robinson and H. R. Hobarl Its design seems to be to convince the people that railroading in Amer ica is unprofitable, and that the sev eral railway companies now operating in the United States are year after year losing money. Here is an ex tract from the brief chapter under the title of government ownership. After referring to certain losses said to have been sustained by the inter colonial and Prince Edward Island railways in Canada under govern ment management the writer says: In the United States private citizens fur nish the money to build and operate the railways, and pocket the losses, while the governments, state and national, manage the roads and the people enjoy their bene fits without being taxed to pay the defi ciency which beats government owne...

R., wrote to Senator Plumb calling atten tion to Governor Smith's brutal treat ment of Mr. Kittsmiller (who was a resident of Pratt, Kas.) This letter went from Senator Plumb to General Martin, who in turn sent it to Governor Smith requesting him to report the cnse. Gov ernor Smith then obtained reports, from Adjutant Robert Hayes, Captain D. 0. Goodrich and Surgeon Wever, all offi cers of the Home, and all of which re ports finally came before the board at this investigation. The statement of Dr. Wever seems to have never reached General Martin, but lodged in the hands of Governor Smith until after Martin's death. It was made (to Governor Smith for Martin's informa tion) May 14, 1889, and is, in substance, as follows: I was present when you visited the fourth ward of the Home hospital on the morning of Dwember 25 last, Christmas, accompa nied by Captain.

By loyalty he of course means republicanism, because in his eyes only republicans are loyal; and he would like to see the day come un doubtedly when our children would be taught the doctrines of the repub lican party (if an agreement could be reached as to what are republican doctrines) at the public expense in the common schools. Such is the consis tency and the statesmanship of latter day republicans. HOW IT IB GOING IK VIEGIHIA.

THIS JUDVOO-A-Tm 11 AN OBJECT LESSOU FOB CITIES. The Enormous Present Value of a Fran chise That Was Given for Nothing. The Chicago citj railway has a share capital of $9,000,000, worth at present de pressed valuation $27,000,000. Control of the stock could not be bought on a basis of $15,000,000. It has a bonded in debtedness ;of $4,619,500, bearing iH P cent, interest. Within a month $7,000, 000 of Alley "L" road securities were distributed among stockholders. The 'melon" was estimated to be worth be tween $5,000,000 and $6,000,000. It will be seen, therefore, that the earning power of the property is sufficient to pay interest on about $50,000,000. This enormous wealth has grown from an original nominal investment of $100, 000, made thirty-fours ago. It is a gift from the people whom the company's hired road agents have been trying to hold up for a few paltry nickels, cn the miserable plea that a particular line of cars did not pay after a certain hour at night Inexpressible litt...

12 f s POPULIST HEETEJG3. How Intensely the Peopla Are Interested m Politics.

Many of the business houses were patriotic enough to decorate with flags, and the court house yard, in which the speaking was held, was well filled with - an audience, many of whom had come ' for thirty miles to hear the speaking. The governor is fluent, forcible and, at times, quite pathetic. He called atten tion to the Omaha platform, and that prophetic paragraph, the sublet of so much ridicule by the nress and speakers of the old parties, which states that we are in "a country brought to the verge I of mc?al, material and political ruin." , ElTproved the proposition with fact, re ports from the bank commissioner, sta tistics from the labor bureau, and the well-known condition of the masses, with a pathos that brougnt tears to the eyes of nearly all who he...

THE BVOOjTID. 13 MB. OOrrEEJ OH MONEY. (Continued from page 9.) We lift the warning voice and catch up the patriotic words of our fathers and answer them, "Millions for defense, but not one cent for tribute." The operations and methods by which the money power seek to accomplish, and do too of ten accomplish their pur poses of spoilation and financial robbery, are so subtle and unobserved in their workings that it is not easy ior some people to understand. Yet, I shall un dertake to make one or two points plain and comprehensible. The chiefest wrongs are not accom plished against the debtor classes by changing the terms or words of the con tract, payable in so many dollars, but by ohanging the power of the contract and ohanging its effect by changing .the standard. It is done by changing the value of money, appreciating the dollar of the contract or greatly increasing its purchasing power. hjajstbatiojis.

I I0Kii?iV4 ' TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1893. OFFICIAL STATE PAPEB. ' IS A Servile Senate Does Its Master's Bidding, THE PEOPLE AGAIN BETRAYED. Cleveland's Kepeal Bill Passed By a Vote of 43 to 32--Adjournm8nt Near. After sixty-one days of debate, the last fourteen days without adjournment, the senate on the evening of October 30 passed the Voorhees substitute for the Wilson repeal bill, the effect of which, when it becomes a law, will be to stop the purchase and coinage of silver as a money of the United States. The sub stitute was sent to the house at once, and the prospects are that it will soon receive the president's signature. This act will go down in history as one of the most infamous outrages ever perpetrated by congress. Ten senators paired and thus avoided voting. They were Allison, Mitchell, Chandler, White, Wilson, Colquit, Gor don, Morgan, Palmer and Hansbrough. Those voting against it were Allen, Bate, Berry, Blackburn, Butler, Call, Cameron, Cockrell, Co...

THE OLD PAETIES' PLEDGES, Extract Prom a Speech Delivered Eon Joseph Wheeler, of Alabama, in the House of Bepresentatives, August 25 1893. Not only did the democratic platform promise the people free silver but in ad dition to that thirty-one states, in their conventions, adopted free silver plat forms, and substantially all of the con gressional districts which expressed themselves on the subject were emphatic for free coinage. The New York Trib nne of Jane, 21, 1892, refers to this sub ject in these words: Behind Cleveland is a party which in the last three years has declared for free silver in thirty-one state platforms, and in two congresses has voted fur free silver bills -with substantial unanimity. One of these thirty-one states was the state of Alabama, which in the state convention expressed itself unequivo cally for silver. I read from the fourth plank of the Alabama state platform of 1892: That the demcoratio party of Alabama ex presses its condemnation of the republican ...

THE! ADVOCATE. 3 AEISTOOBATIO DEM00B1TS C?) Qiover Cleveland Who Was He Politic ally? Editos Advocate: I have been studying up President Cleveland and tracing his political geneaology in order to account for his evident proclivities towards aristocracy and his devotion to wealth and millionairism. And I find that he is acting in perfect consistency with and is proving perfectly faithful to his early teachings and education. And this is in pursuance of the ancient plati tudes that "the leopard can't change his spots," and that "what ia born in the bone can't be got out of the flesh." Cleveland's ancestry were of the old federal school intensified by its minis terial character and profession. For the old Presbyterian ministry of New En gland were of the most ultra devotees of governmental authorityholding the democratio doctrine of the minimum of government power and authority in utter contempt, and demanding the stern regulation of everything human, in the name of the law.
