VOL VI. KO. 1. I $1.00 A YKAB. f DUN'S WAIL. Th8 Dying Tear Leaves Only a Dismal Business Record. New York, December 29. R. 0. Dun & Company's weekly review of trade says under the caption "The New Year: "Starting with the largest trade ever known, mills crowded with work and all business stimulated by high hopes, the year 1893 has proved, in sudden shrink age of trade in commercial disasters and depression of industries, the worst for fifty years. Whether the final results of the panic of 1837 were relatively more severe the scanty records for thac time do not clearly show. The year closes with prices of many products the lowest ever known, with millions of workers seeking in vain for work, and with char ity laboring to keep back suffering and starvation in all our cities. All hope the New Year may bring brighter days, but the dying year leaves only a dismal record. The review of different depart ments of trade given to day exhibits a collapse of industry and business which is ...

GSEAT PE0BLE1I3 EOLVED By Getting at the Bottom Principles Oa Which They Are Based-The Tariff and Other Questions Mastered. Editor Advocate: I learned very early in life that problems of science were readily solved if we approach them frcm the right direction; and that most questions of state and public policy turn on a very few considerations; and these lay at the root of the matter, so that by penetrating to the bottom of the ques tion, it is easily eolved and readily un derstood. And th is process I afterwards applied to the serious question of re ligion with satisfactory results, eta, thorough conviction of the soundness of the conclusions arrived at. Ordinary politicians and the party press, whose business it is to keep community divided and at loggerheads, deal entirely in sur face facts, mere debris that floats to and fro on the great sea of politics; and which, in many cases, are no facts at all, or facta made to order for their osas and purposes; and in other cases they may...

it. PI-IE! jSJDVOOjTIB. i .V THAT LETTER BUSEAU. At the late meeting of the Kansas Reform Press association a committee wa3 appointed to endeavor to make arrangements for a weekly letter from Topeka to the several papers of the state. The committee have in view, if possible, to furnish that letter free, or at most at the trilling cost of postage, and by the plan under con sideration we think it can be done. Although we had held no regular meeting prior to our issue of last week we had some correspondence upon the subject and the committee was agreed upon the plan that should be attempted. Last week we stated that certain parties had attempted to forestall any action the committee might de sire to take by sending out circulars proposing to undertake this corres pondence without authority of the committee. Mr. Ballard in his uHur rikin" says our statement was false. Let us see whether it was or not The circular he sent out begins as fol lows: "Mr , Editor of , A Letter Bureau haa been...

Tiil ADVOOATB. G0VEMME3JT MUST NOT BE PATES- NALISTIO. The following dispatch tells a story that most be heeded if crime is averted: Rutland, Vx., December 18, Fife younj men, skilled mechanics, to-day ask ad to be committed to the house of correction. The polios judge replied that they had com mitted no crime. "We will commit crimes, if necessary, they said, "for we must have food and shelter, and we cannot get work." Then they were sentenced to thirty days. We are told that the government cannot interfere to give work to idle men because that would be paternal ism a thing that nrnat by no means be thought of. Men must commit crime before they can be cared for by the state or nation. Is it any wonder under such a system that crime is in creasing! Are starving men to be blamed for avaling themselves of the only means remaining to them to es cape death from cold and hunger? Let the advocate of the existing order reflect whether it is wiser to thus en courage crime than to exercise th...

THE jklDVOOJ-LTJD. OOMHEHDABLE E003J0MY. A Letter to President Cleveland, Contain ing Practical Suggestions. Mr. President: Your meaaage to the congress of the United States has, through the medium of my weekly news paper, just came to cay hands. I have spent all Sunday in a careful study of this great state paper. Its thorough going advocacy of economy in many of its sections should certainly call for the approval of all men who are patriotic enough to prefer the welfare of the country to the mere personal advantage of drawing a fat salary. I have been particularly struck with the great savings already made, and the greater ones yet contemplated in the agri cultural department. In this depart ment 580 persons were discharged at a saving of $56,135 66. It is true the per sons so discharged must have belonged to the least salaried officials in that de partment, as from the figures given their average pav only came to $96.78 per quarter or $32.26 per month. It is fur ther true that th...

Crooks, pastor of the Burr street Baptiat church of St. Paul, made what la re garded by many as a very incendiary epeech. Ha said: "Everything rung to trusts. Just think of flour. Wheat haa been selling all the fall at about 50 cents a bushel, one-half the usual price. But I ask, in God's name, who haa been buying flour at one half the usual price? The flour bwons of the republic are not satisfied with the whole nojr, but they want hog pen and awill pail throwa in. Sooner or later there will be an explosion. It came in France in the daya of her communism and the blood of her tyrants flawed like water and fertilized her fields.

GBEAT PROBLEMS SOLVED. ( Continued Jrom pagt S.) ernmant aa was intended, or shall it be employed to build up private parties? In other words can money be legitimately extorted from the people to subaeve per eonal interests? Can anyone hold, on dae consideration, that the government should thus intervene in the affairs of in dividuals, and lay taxes or levy duties for personal ends or to promote private purposes? Impossible. And so the su preme courts of most of the states, and Kansas among them, have decided in cases where taxes were undertaken to be laid by the legislature for private pur poses; and the reasoning applies as well and as fully to suoh action on the part of the general government. The pre rogatives and duties of government aro purely public It has no right to con sult personal and individual aims and ends. To do so, it would necessarily fa vor one party at the expense of another, as in this very case. Did it never occur to the reader, that if the protective tariff co...

It was at first said that the republican senators would not attempt to delay the passage of the bill but after expreesing their dis approval in brief debate would permit it to go to a vote. It does not appear as yet that there will be any organized opposition for the purpose of delay merely, but that there will be such or ganizati...

THjS3 ADVOCATE. Railroading and Socialism. Editor Advocat: II the very broad meaning given to the term eocialism in the Advocate of December 13, ia correct, every act of the state where self govern ment exiata ia aocialiatic, the furnishing of a wagon road as much so as of a rail road, and fartner, the state can divest any of her functions of their aocialiatic character by simply appointing a private individual or corporation to act for her in the place of her government, yet both government and the corporation are her agents, one natural, with general powers, the other special, with specific powers and duties. It is not easy to see how this substitution changes the nature of the function. Any private individual or company may mine, manufacture, farm, carry, buy, sell, lend and borrow, without an appointment or any special authority from the state to do so. But no private individual or corporation, can build, ex clusively possess and operate a public road, turnpike, railroad, street...

January 8. From the time the house reconvened on Wednes day until to-day, there were not enough members to gat a vote on anything per tainincr to the Wilson tariff bill. This was occasioned by democratic opposi tion to the bill. Representative Sperry, who represents the Democratic objectors to the Wilson bill, tried ursuccesbfully in the house throughout the day to secure recognition in order to move to recommit the tariff bill, with instructiors to prepare and submit the internal revenue feature be fore asking for a special rule closing de bate.

THE ADVOOATI2. THE FUTURE OF LABOR. Address of Henry D. Lloyd Before the American Federation of Labor, Chicago, December, 1893. A Right to Work and a Duty to Organize lh Liberty of Union Can Be Preserved Only by Uslnpr the Union to Get More Liberty. Workir gmen have the undoubted right of organization. The question of the day ia: "What are they going to do Tith it?" This right, like all other rights, can be kept healthy only by exer cise. The liberty of union can be pre served only by using the union to get more liberty. The workingmen have the vote, but there ore eigne in plenty that if they do not use it to free themselves in other ways, they will lose that right and all the other freedoms that axe clustered with it. "Too many people vote in Ohio," the counsel of a great trust said lately in the United States courts. A constitutional convention is about to be held in New York, and one of the reforms to be pressed is some qualification of the suffrage, to put an end to this evil of...

X'J&IHS ADTOOATH. 3 Washington's hope and purpoee until events forced the issue, and he had to choose whether he would take the place of father of anew country. Adam Smith, the English economist, and Benjamin Franklin, the American philosopher, thought they had discovered a solution for the problem of American discontent in the representation of the colonies in the parliament at London. Hardly any one but that chief incendiary, Sam Adams, more than any other man the author of our nationality, comprehended the drift of things. He saw and meant that America should be free. His clear eye saw running through all the tangle of the mutual rights of mother country and colonists that the real colonial right was to cease to be a colony and become a country. The real right of Americans was to cease to be subjects and become citizens. In our day we are be in; buffeted about in another baffling complexity of dis putes and adjustments.
