1SD3, Sioux Center. Fifteen persona were killed and mora than twenty Injured. Charles E. Cunningham, whona name ia familiar to all the old guard of the People's party, died at his home ia Lit tle Rock, Ark., May 28. He was union labor candidate for vice president in 1888, and was temporary chairman of the groat Cincinnati convention in 189L Ex-Congressman Bourka Ccckran of New York, ia going to Ireland to baa candidate for the British house of commons from the county Sligo. It would be very kind of Ireland, or Eng land, to take a few such statesmen off our hands, and put them where they could talk "honest money" to their heart's content. Kansas City, Mo., will soon own her waterworks provided the citizens will vote 3 million dollars of bonds to pay for them. During a heavy course of litiga tion it has been doubtful whether the city should own the works or the Na tional Waterworks company should own the city. With the aid of the United States court the city has found a way out, but o...

MIT jmmnmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmtmtmmmmmmmmmmmmKmmmmmm IS 8ILVE3 A LEGAL TENDE37 There has been considerable dis cussion recently upon this question in the daily press from which it ap pears that it is not at all understood. As the subject of free coinage is now attracting so large a share of public r-ttsntion, it may be well to devote Eiifficient space to it to arrive at a correct conclusion. No one in this controversy denies that np to 1873 silver was a legal tender in any amount for all debts public and private. It is a very eimple matter, therefore, to deter mine its present status by an exam ination of the act of 1873 and subse quent acts in relation to the nse of silver as money. The act of February 12, 1873, pimply dropped from the coinage hitherto provided for at American mints, the standard silver dollar of 412 grains, and substituted the trade dollar of 420 grains in its stead; and faction 15 of the act prescribing the character and weight of the coins thereafter to be issued p...

183S. WHAT ;MEN OF STANDING MUST KXPXCT. Collis P. Huntington, the great Southern Pacific railroad magnate, recently arrested for violation of the interstate commerce law, eaysl Oh, this arreai ia simply .ona of those malicious little pieces of business that all mea of atandina must expeot. He does not deny his guilt of the charge upon which he is arrested, but then what business has anybody to arrest a railroad magnate for a little violation of the interstate com merce law? That law was made for workingmen, not "men of standing," WHERE THE PARTY HEART 13. The Commg Nation of April 27, commenting upon some recent stric tures of the National Watchman, says: The silTer party is composed of men who want a divy of the privileges of the sold bug monopoly, and it will take good care of the Watchman.

It would be interesting to know just what a republican manifesto at this tima would contain to know "what charms, what cosj oration, and what mighty taasio" Mr. Leland and hia associates would oso to convince the public mind that Kansas has been redeemed. Ths fact of the matter is, that ths republi cans have not redeemed anything, except a few worn-out, broken-down politicians, who were on the verge of starvation, and had to be cared for. Notwithstand ing, the redemption promises made upon the stump, a man traveling about the state sees no particular change. T&e condition of those who pay the taxes is not improved because of any action of the administration.

Editor Advocate: Now th3t Kan sas ia redeemed, and the redeemers are buay fighting over the spoils, let us re view the results of our recent election. It has always been a well-known fact that the law-and-order-loving people of Kansas were in a great majority. This fact has been demonstrated by the pas sage of the prohibitory amendment, and in other ways where any moral re form has been squarely and honestly submitted to a vote of the people. This fact Is as well known to the profes sional politician as it is to the whole sale liquor man who is ever on the alert to gain a vantage ground in Kansas and who is ever willing to contribute to a campaign fund in Kansas if he has the aasurance that his goods will find a t:a!e under the administration of the ticket which he is to support.

1121 Government Banking;. Editor Advocate:: The speech of Backer Allerton, the Chicago million aire, who lately talked "fiat" to the plu tocratio Marquette club, ia only slightly in advance of the position taken by bankers generally in their magazines and periodicals. They concede the in dispensability of paper currency. But they wish to issue it and loan it them selves. Every monometalist favors bans currency. The issue ia joined on the question, Shall the people do their own banking for the benefit and profit of all, or shall they farm out the right which they alone possess to private corpora tions for private gain? The thought of government banking, ita very name startles some people. Bat let us reflect. Have we not this system to a limited extent already? Why cot expand it! Jackson made neceesary gov ernment banking by refusing to recharter the old United States bank. Our na tional treasury and the sub-treaaury at New York are but parts of the present government banking system. ...

That the Cleveland administration and the whole country are eecurely in the grasp of the monster gold combine is admitted by the following press dis patch tent from Washington April 8: The discovery is made that there is an actual basis for the report that the Morgan-Rothsohild bond syndicate Is conspiring to corner the gold market, though the story has been regarded as a foolish canard.

"My dear Sydney," said the Hermit, "I very much regret that I did not know of your project earlier. It is an ungrateful service to discourage a man who has already committed himself to an enterprise, and whose manhood naturally rebels at giving it up a thing I shall by no means advise you to do. But, I must assure you, nevertheless, that you and your followers are doing the very thing which, of al1 things, Washington, Hamilton, and their fellow schemers for a strong, despotic general government would moat wish to do. Your very indignation at the oppressions of the people is leading you to aug ment and perpetuate their oppressions." "What can you mean? Please explain," said Syd ney somewhat annoyed, but really troubled. "I shall be as plain as I can. But, in the first place, rest assured that I have no sc...

J. Sterling Morton. There is a man In Washington who occupies the chair of secretary of agri culture. It has been apparent from the time he took the office that he is a small sized politician and possesses little of manhood. He has liked to indulge in "smartness" and high and lofty as sumptions of superior wisdom and vir tue. It is not the custom of the Kan sas Farmer to notice the doings of public officials unless they are excep tional. But the recent action of the secretary of agriculture is so remark able and has to do so directly with the interests of farmers that some notice of it seems necessary. The order of the secretary excluding Mexican cattle was based on the fact that these cattle are diseased and likely to infect other cattle with which they come in contact, or which occupy pas tures or premises where the Mexican cattle have been. The order of exclu sion was in the line of good government and the protection of our herds. It was not an unusual order, but to have omitted ...

Zicivooata. involves far more than the mere question of free coinage of silver. It involves the extent to which paper money is to be issued and nsed. It involves the question of who shall issne and control its volnme. It in volvea the continuance of national banks, and the establishment of gov ernment banks. In fact, it involves many things that suca men as the the Capital has named will never hint at. Of conrse,the Capital regards those who entertain notions fayor able to "fiat" money and government banks as qisionariea and cranks, and they will not probably be regarded as of sufficient consequence to be accorded recognition in the "Money Forum."
