TECH ADVOOATB. 5 VASHEJGTOI STAB X)MMEJT.! One of the favorite pastimes of the gold-bug organs is to tell how Popu list senators and representatives talk to empty seats, being unable to enlist the attention of their fellow members Of course, everyone who knows any thing about the facts is well aware that it is very seldom that any atten tion is given to any speaker in either house. The Advocate has called at tention to this fact several times be fore. In referring to this inattention to Populist speakers these gold-bug organs seek to convey the impression that it is peculiar to them. One would think to read a republican paper upon this subject, that when a repute lican speaker had the floor the other members hadn't ears enough to listen to him. Such is the reliability of these organs. It may be a satisfaction to the peo ple of Kansas to read the opinion of a Washington paper concerning these matters in reference to Senator Fef fer, who has, perhaps, been the sub ject of more ridicul...

6 ADVOOATS. THE PE0P03ED HEW DOUBT HOUSE The commissioners of Shawnee county have left at this office a blae print copy of the plans and specific tions of the proposed new court house. The people of the connty are to vote upon the proposition of issu ing bonds for the erection of this court house at the election on the 7th inst We do not desire to take posi tive ground either for or against this proposition, but we do desire to make it the occasion of some observations bearing upon the subj jet. The argu ment is not all upon one side of the question, and it is perfectly proper that it be fairly stated both pro and con. The commissioners urge, in the first place, that the presebt court house is insufficient for the needs of the county, and that the rents now being paid for court room and offices outside, that should be provided for in the county building, would go a long way toward the erection of the new court house. There is some rea son in this claim, but it has not the actual for...

0 EAUiEOiD AHD 00SP021TI0I AT TOMEYS IN 00MBES3. It has long been notorious that rail rnad and other corporations have their paid attorneys in congress to look after their special interests, They engineer such measures throngh fis their employers desire, and they defeat such measures as are diapleaa ing to them. It is not often, however, that one of these attorneys gives him self away as clearly as did the con' grsssman from the Fourth Kansas district when the bill was reported from the house committee to compel the railroad companies whose lines run through the Oherokee strip to erect depots and pnt in side tracks at the towns located along those lines by the agents of the government. We have seen a great many refer ences in republican papers to the little colloquy of Mr. Curtis and Mr. Simpson in the house daring the dis cussion of this bill We have read in these corporation organs how Jerry was paralyzed by the new congressman; and we have seen it facetionsly stated as a reason w...

TIEHS .ADVOCATE. o minutes more to the gentleman from Illi nois. Mr. Springer-Thia, Mr. Speaker, it will be coon, was doing no injustice whatever to anyone. No one was injured except the speculators, because there waa no town es tablished around these stations, nothing but the railroad station and depot It was an easy matter for the railroad company to transfer its depot or station to the new town site, easier than for the town site to be transferred to the railroad station, be cause it must be remembered that in some oases these towns had grown to from 3,000 to 5,000 population. Several thousands of persons in many instances have located at these points; and yet, notwithstanding that faot, the railroad oompanies positively re fuse up to this time to offer depot facilities or to take on or put off the mails at these points. Now, if the members will turn to page 1919 of the Record of this session, they will find the decision by Attorney General Hall, of the land offloe, addressed to ...

10 THI53 ADVOCATE. TJUOOISTTFUTIOUAL. The sapereme court of Michigan on October 21 declared the act per mitting women to vote at municipal elections unconstitutional. This is another instance demonstrating the statement made in the Advocate a short time ago that this is not a gov ernment of, for and by the people. The people have absolutely nothing to do with the government. They cannot enact a law that is worth the paper it is written on. lney can elect legislatures it is true; and those legislatures can play that they are making laws; but if the laws they make do not happen to suit the judge upon the bench he brushes them aside like a cobweb. The people are abso lutely powerless to protect their own interests by legislation. We are liv ing under a judicial oligarchy of the most imperious character, and it is useless to attempt to disguise this fact The most important legislation to be aimed at in the near future is the total abolition of the courts and the establishment of a syste...

11 Progress in Texas. Editor Advocats:I have friends and relatives in many sections of Tezas who inform m that thousands of demo crats are deserting that party and de claring their intention to hereafter vote and act with the People's party. At i meeting of COO leading farmers in Wil liamson county, Tezas, to discuss the free coinage of silver, all of whom had hitherto been life -long democrats, a vote was had before adjournment a? to whether they should contitue to be dem ocrate, which resulted in an unanimous vote to go with the People's party. Throughout all the southern states we hear of the same remarkable revolution in progress against the democratic party, Many of the old democratic leaders see the handwriting on the wall, and are trying to arrest this tide of public senti mnt against their party by advocating free coinage of silver, but their efforts will prove fruitless. Prior to organize tion of the People's party, there was not 10 per cent, of the voters of the south who ...

A TXAS. $1.00 j PEOSPEBITY MAIER3 Adjourn Their Play Houses to Await the Effect of Their Work. Washington. November 6. Both houses of congress adjourned last Friday at 3 o'clock p. m., after being in session eighty-seven days. A wrangle between the house and senate over an appropriation to pay the senate employes for work done during the recess of the Fifty-first congress in 189C, caused the failure of the general deficiency bill and the bill for the pay ment of the clerks and employes during the adjournment between yesterday and the regular session December 4. The senate was determined this appropri ation should be agreed to by the house with the alternative of sacrificing the deficiency bill, and Senator Cockrell, chairman of the appropriations commit tee, Bent word that not a dollar of de ficiency would be agreed toby the senate until the house accepted this amend ment which had been tacked on the de ficien y bill. The senate adjournment resolution had been passed, and in this wa...

2 THE! ADVOOATfi. PATEMALISTIO L0AU3 TO THE PEOPLE. It has been frequently stated of late that the Peoples' party has abandoned all its ancient tenets of faith, and is now treading in new and hitherto untraversed paths. It is said that we have given up the de mand for goverment loans to the peo pie among other things, because it was untenable; and republican edit ors have expressed considerable un easiness because we have had noth ing to say upon this subject lately. There is nothing more gratifying to us than to accommodate these gentle men when we can do so conveniently, and inasmuch as they are particularly desirous to hear something about it we will give them a short chapter this week to revive their drooping spirits. We are indebted for the ma terial of this contribution to an article published in the Coming Nation of Greensburg, Indiana, from the pen oj W. A. Reeding, of Navarre, Kas. We have already demonstrated the practicability of such loans by cita tions from colonial his...

TIE-IE ADVOOATB. amines the title to the land, and if satisfied, takes a cote and mortgage and certifies the amount to the county treasurer, who pays to the' borrower the sum loaned. The oounty auditor makes a full statement of each loan to the oounty board of super visors. If the seourity is thought to be not sufficient, the board may require the bor rower to give additional seourity. If he fails to do so the loan is declared due and the oounty attorney is required to enforce the payment. The auditor and his bonds men must make good any deficiency that may ooour in the transaction. This plan has been in operation since 1874, and is very successful. The borrower pays 6 per cent, interest. Counties are re sponsible to the state for all the school fund received by them. The only expense to the borrower, in making a loan, is the coat of the abstract of title. No person can borrow more than $1,CC0. Yours respeotfully, J. B. Knoxfflxb, State Supt. of Public Instruction. The foregoing let...

TKCES ADVOCATE. 5 SOME OF THE EVESOPOUSEOOIAL SYSTEM. We live in an age when the tri umphs of science and art have raised prodnctive industry to a most ex alted height An abundance of every thing that is capable of contributing to human comfort and happiness is visible upon every hand. Indeed, so great is the supply that modern would-be teachers of political econ omy tell us there is a ruinous over production a redundance that actu ally destroys profits. Still, in the midst of all this wonderful plenty, there was never a time when there was so much enforced idleness; so much hunger and want and despair; so many desolate homes, and so many human beings destitute of the sem blance of home; so many innocent helpless children crying in vain for bread; so many human bodies unpro tected from the chilling blasts of winter; so much crime and vice and insanity; so many innocent despair ing girls led into sin as the only ref uge from starvation, or so many men and women driven to suicide. Is ...

THE ADVOOAT32. "BUSHTE33 PIE3T AHD POLITICS AFTEET7ABDS." Soma time ago, in a series of arti cles upon the liquor question, we took the ground that before there can be any such thing as perfectly fair elections anywhere in this country the corrupting influence of the saloon and of the vast liquor interests of the country must be entirely eliminated. We took the ground further that this could never be accomplished by pro hibitory legislation while the manu facture and sale of liquor is left in private hands and is conducted for individual profit There is but one way to reach a result so important and so much to be dasired, and that is by the publio control of the entire business in all its departments,thereby effecting the total disorganization of all the forces now engaged in the traffic. The adoption of a prohibitory law in any state while the manufac ture and sale of liquor is in the hands of individuals or corporations, and while it is a source of the great profits known to atten...

PATERNALISM- The thought suggested at sight of this word by our great republican editors is one of holy horror. The pronunciation of it cau?es cold chills to chase each other up and down their spinal columns till the goose pimples stand out as big as buckshot all over their anatomy. Ralph Bur ton also shed great drops of briny perspiration at Hamilton hall, in this city, on Wednesday evening last, in contemplation of the paternalistic tendencies of the People's party. He "held in his hand" several bills that Senator Peffer and other Populist senators and representatives had in troduced which actually proposed that the government should do something for some of the American people be sides the bondholders, bankers and corporations. It was audacious. It was too utterly horrible to think of. Mr. E. W. Hoch had a severe tussle at the court house only a few even ings before with the same terrible problem, and he is said to have spent Dearly the whole evening in trying to demonstrate that...

8 TIS ADVOCATE. A VERY EOBUST VAEHTY OF HEA DACHY. Thd Topeka Capital has estab lished for itself such a notorious rep ntation for mendacity that it is hardly worth the time and space requisite to point oat the daily examples of it that appear in its columns ; nevertheless, in order to keep its true character al ways before the people, we are con strained to give it more attention than it has ever deserved. The republican managers, having let go a boomerang, just on the eve of election, which recoiled with unex pected destructive energy this help-J less organ of the gang became desperate in its efforts to evade the legitimate effects of the ill-advised and absolutely silly maneuver. We have referred to this matter in another column, but the turn taken by the Capital places it in such an attitude before the people that we venture, at the expense of some rep etition of the facts, to point out its perfectly conscienceless mendacity. It oeing made manifest by the at tempted expose of a ...
