V X i i TOI.T. KO. 48.) A TSAR. $1.00 f TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 29, 1893. OFFICIAL STATE PAPER. SEOEETABY OP AGRICULTURE Morton Still Afraid of Paternalism His Official Eeport Washington, November 26. The see retary of agriculture, in hia report just submitted to the president, regrets the vague character of the department or ganization, which he says "offera opulent opportunities for the exercise of the most pronounced paternaliam," but headda that there are many proper ways in which the federal government may legiti mately serve the cause of agriculture. He devotes considerable space to a re view of what he regards as an anomalous partnership between the government of the United States and the governments of the respective states for the conduct and encourgement of state agricultural colleges and experiment stations. Referring to the sum appropriated for the use of state experiment stations, he says: "This appropriation is unlike any other public moneys legislated out ...

2 AN KTESSTATE BAILWAY. The Cost of Building and tba Ocst of Doing Witnout Ona. The interstate and gulf railroad con vention which will meet in Topeka, December 5, will discuss proposed plans of building a railroad line from Minne sota to the gulf, and among them will be one by Eric Olson, an experienced rail- road contractor, of Sherburn, Minnesota. In order to get it before the public, Mr. Olson's plan was published in the pamphlet containing the proceedings of the Lincoln railroad convention of June 28, 1893. Prefacing his article with statistics showing the outrageous cost to the people of corporation ownership, Mr. Olson says: To build a line of first-class double track railway from Duluth, Minn., to Galveston, Texas, 1,300 miles and equip it would coat abut $10,000,000. It could be built for $30,000,000, as frontier roads have been built and perfected by the earrings in about ten years, the expense of betterment charged up to operating expenses according to custom.

G THE ADVOCATE. "A GREAT WORK POR THE UEWS PAPER3." The Leavenworth Times of No vember 22 has a double-leaded edi torial upon the political situation in Kansas which is a most sublime mix ture of truth, error and noosense. It treats of the supposed causes which have deprived the republican party of its great majority and turned the state over to a new party from the standpoint of one who is apparently familiar with the facts; but when it assumes that the recent election indi cates a return of the people to the republican party there are no figures to justify the assumption. While it is not disputed that republicans have elected a majority of the county offi cers, the Times must not forget that they did the same thing in 1891, nor must the fact be overlooked that the republican vote this year is about 5,000 less than it was in 1891. This does not indicate that the Populists have gone to the republican party. Former Populist voters have not voted the republican ticket this year nor wi...

TKES ADVOOATB. 7 THE KANSAS ELECTIONS. The Capital, in its issue of Novem ber 22, expresses surprise that the Advocate's tabulated statement of the election returns is correct, not withstanding it makes an unfavora ble showing for the Populist party. Permit us to remind the Capital that it is Dot the custom of the Advocate to deceive its readers. They are en titled to the facts, and they subscribe and pay for the Advocate in order to get them. The people themselves are responsible for the results of the election, and they undoubtedly have good reasons for the course they have pursued. We have our opinions con cerning what those reasons are, but we do not propose to discuss them now. The time has not yet come for that When that time arrives the Advocate will be heard from with no uncertain sound. The proper occasion for the discus sion of the causes that operate against us is when the opportunity is present to remove those causes, and that oc casion will not present itself until the ...

The irrigation convention held in Wichita last week waa of more interest than its most enthusiastic friends an ticipated. It is doubtful if an audience in Kansas ever gave closer attention to the participants. "It is the largest irri gation convention ever held in this coun try," says Major Powell, of the United States geological survey, and others ex press themselves similarly. Two hun dred and fifty delegates, representing every state and territory west of the Mis souri, were present This is the fourth of the interstate series, similar conven tions having lately been held at Salina, Deming and Los Angeles. The delegates were largely the practi cal and progressive farmers of western Kansas and the arid region beyond, in terspersed with men eminent for their knowledge in engineering and the scien ces.

10 PABM H0ETGAGE3. (Continued from page 7.) turn our attention to the centuries of pre historic human experienoe which the author of the Pentateuoh had in mind when be penned the immortal twenty fifth chapter of Leviticus, or to the dawn of Greolan or Roman history, the revolutions and bellions in our mother oountry, or to the financial crisis of modern timer, such as those in our own country in 1818, 1837 1857, 1873 and 1893 94, or to famine stricken Russia, the one great fact which in every instance towers above every other history creating fact is debt. Let us note the great increase during the last twelve years in the private indebted C6jS of our own people and contrast it with the modest increase of scarcely CO per oent. in our wealth, nearly half of which was but a fictitious rise in speculative ground values. As for the funded debt, those of the rail roads ircreed from $2,392,000 000 in 1880 to f 5.463,0(0 000 in 1892, according to Poor'i Manual, an increase of 129 per oent.,...

THE ADVOCATE, 11 VOTEBS SLEEPING. A Scientific Study Showing the Magni- tud,e of the Stay-at-Home Vote. One of the most accomplished statisti cians in the United Statea is Professor Frederick C. Waite, renowned for his expert work on the census, m connection with which, about a year ago, he said: "The total net private indebtedness of the American people equaled in 1880 but $6,750,000,000; in September, 1892, it amounted to $19,700,000,000, an increase of $12,000,000,000 in the short period of twelve years. "These mute figures tell the tale. Our manufacturing and mining industries have been stimulated under the intoxi cating influence of protection, while our farmers have been compelled to borrow to meet deficits. Oar land values have been bolstered up by booms and ruth lees real estate speculation all over the west and south. Railroads have been built to forestall competitors, to raise the value of land and to build cities where none were needed. Bonds and watered stocks have been ...

12 TUB! ikDVOOiLTSS. DEBT AUD TAXATTOI. Their Terribld Consequences Upca the People of America. Editob Advocate: Wealth is fast accumulating in the hand of the few, and that few are not the ones that produce it. The once hippy homes of the people of this great republic are being grasped up by the shylocks, money lenders and money manipulators of this and foreign lands. The above two paragraphs or their substance are constantly thrust before our eyes or into our ears by the publio press, from the rcstrum.through the dis cussions in congress or in private con vention among the people; and their alarming signification begins to be ap prehended and appreciated. Among the means that have brought about this alarming state of things are two not generally mentioned, and to which the Populist party, whose mission is reform, ought to have given more consequence and attaohed a greater importance. I have marveled thtt it didn't do so, and trust it will hereafter make amends for its short coming...

13 HOW TO BUN AN MJUBATOB. The Manager of Homestead Poultry Farm Tells His Experience. After trying two years to raise chick ens under hens without success, we con cluded to try an incubator, and it worked so well that we want no more hatching under hens. The incubator was ordered in March, but did not arrive until April. Then it was three weeks more before we could get it to work properly. After getting it thoroughly heated the eggs were put in. As I had never had any experience with a machine before in fact, this was the first I had ever seen I was doubtful as to results of the first hatch, but made up my mind to give it all the care and attention I possibly could. I watched it pretty closely night and day and did not get a good night's rest for the three weeks the eggs were hatching. The result was that I took 250 chicks out of the incubator from 320 eggs. I put them in the brooder and succeeded in raising most of them. Al though it was late, I concluded that I would try it again...

Men spend more money for the good things of life now than ever before. When someone described the Fifty-first congress aa "a billion dollar congress" it waa thtught to be an appalling and al together exaggerated statement. Re cently we have been calling America "a billion dollar country." and we rather like the phrase. Now we can go a sten further and call New York "a billion dollar city," for never in the history of America has so much money been spent for luxuries and for entertainments. It may not be generally known, but it ia a fact, nevertheless, that there are over 8,000 men and women in America who are worth over $1,000,000 each. How many of these are worth $5 000.0C0, $10, 000,000, $25,000,000, $50,000,000, or $150, 000,000 I do not know, but there are enough men in New York who are worth f...

JL'JHID ADVOCATE. 3 THE DUTCH BAILWAYS. .. v The Government Will Eventually Own and Entirely Control All the Koada. London, November 1. All those who are in any way acquainted with Holland know with what regularity, deliberation and slowness the railroads of that coun try are conducted. To a stranger, and especially to an American, they eeem af fected with the eame phlegmatic temper ment for which the Dutchman himself is Loted. The disposition has its draw backs, but one of them is not over haste It is rare that a train runs off the line, and the casualties that occur are rather the result of slowness than of speed. For an active, busy and enterprising nation the railway mileage of Holland is small. This is to be accounted for in two ways: First, the country is email, and then it enjoys such an extent of navigable water. The total length of its canal system is 2,000 miles, in addition to which it has 3,000 miles of other kinds of navigable waters. To a country possessing such advant...
