Labor is or ganizing and arming against capital. In the district I have the honor to repre sent the farmer oan raise nothing that he can sell at a profit. The counties are being shingled with mortgages that can never be lifted. It is therefore an evil hour for the monopolists to appear here and propose to tighten their chains by a legal enactment that seeks to de prive the people of more money in the shape of the soundest currency ever known." Senator Plumb of Kansas, in a speech made on the 6th of Jane,, 1890, said: "Mr. President, I shall be but v prised if the producers of this country are much longer content with this con dition of affairs.

So in this case that we are discussing.

13 Fniit Guitars in Colorado. , The trait growing industry of Colo rado has practically sprung into com rcsrcial importance within the past five years. Yet twenty yeara ago, or longer, a limited amount of fruit in a still more restricted area was successfully grown. The peach belt on the Western Slope was, a little over eleven yeara ego, the home of the Ute Indian, and no white man was allowed to till one foot of what is cow occupied by productive nslda and orchards extending over a scope of country about sixty-five milea long by nearly ten milea in width. It has been proved that in altitudes ranging from 4,3(0 to 7.C00 feet, all of tbe deciduous fiuita flourish and yield abundantly in that favored belt. Results show that apples, prunes, peaches, nectarines, apricots, grapes, (including all of the noted Cali fornia varieties) plums, cherries, and all the bush or email fiuita are exceedirgly profitable, nettiig from 8300 to $5C0 an acre, according to local ity and skill in growing.

14 George's Single-Tax Again Oonsd&ared. Editor Advocate: "The Crime of Poverty" aa pondered over by Henry Georges address at the Winfield Chan tauqua Assembly has aroused 'thought and caused me to read again, Mr. George'a book entitled "Progress and Poverty." While Mr. George's thoughts all seem to tend toward a better condition of systems, while I believe him to be one of the most sincere of men, and while every thoughtful person can see that bis efforts are noble, yet there seems to be a deficiency in the single tax theory. If the single-tax were graduated, so there would be a hindrance to keep the power of artificial wealth, that wealth produced by human effort, from barirg those away from the use of land who have not aa much of the artificial wealth at hand to operate land with as others have, it would be nearer the basic remedy. Some men have more business capac ity, more strength of mind and body, too, than others, and it seems that if this class had unlimited access to l...

15 man once eaid was intended for money by the Divine Being;. The obetruse justice of individuals getting money by interest on money has racked the conscience of the best men of every 8ge. The justice of the govern ment getting money by interest on money is easily enough understood, for the government keeps it in repair and in supply, and could make it so safe in con nection with the poet office that deposit ors 'holding credits for it would be a ' thousand-fold safer, for the wealth of the whole nation would be a backing for the payment of such deposits. If the government could do the bank ing of the country it cculd keep money on a parity with the products of labor. There is such a thing as wheat getting below par, and such a thing as wages getting below par, or below what is right, if the term "par" does not convey the meaning. Wheat used to be worth $1 per bushel, and harvest wages $2 per day; both are worth only about half as much now since gold more nearly regulates their valu...

On Frida Senator Ptffer startled the American house of lords by the introduction of a resolution calling for an investigation of the charges that certain senators were using their official positions for the pur pose of speculating in stocks affected by the tariff bill. To-day the resolution was laid on the table by a vote of 33 to 22. Diligent inquiry fails to discover any senator who was prepared to oppose the Peffer resolution m a speech. Nobody wanted to talk against it. In the lan guage of a prominent western senator, who approves Mr. Pcffer s action, "No body wants to go into the cage with that animal." It is the unanimous opinion in the senate that the Peffer resolution is...

In the hope of eas ing the pnblio mind, therefore, we will conclude with a short but trne statement of our business. Oar total indebtedness in the shape of bills payable (notes) is $411; there is no mortgage on the plant, and our other indebtedness in the shape of ac counts is safely below the amount due us. An affidavit and other proof to verify this statement will be fur nished on application, and we sin cerely hope our meddlesom neigh bors will apply for it and then attend to their own business.

6 TEim ADVOCATE THE P2I0S Off WHEAT. The Capital, having exhausted its own resources upon this subjeot, quotes from the Chicago Tribune in its issue or Jiiarcn t an article m which the Tribune perverts the facta sat forth in Senator Peffer's recent report on the causes of agricultural depression, and endeavors to make that report bowlster lip its hypocriti cal theories. Now, the contention between the Advocate and the Capi tal may be stated definitely and m a very few words. The Capital stated the cause of low prices to be over production; and that the price of wheat always adjusts itself to the "equation of demand and supply." Both of these propositions we deny, and while the Capital has offered no affirmative proof of them we have negatively demonstrated their abso lute fallacy. We hold it as an axiom that it is absurd to talk about overpro duction while the needs of millions of our people are unsup plied; and we have demonstrated by facts and figures which the Capital has not att...

Senator Peffer got in a bill to do away with the secret session fraud. Will it pass? Well, hardly. Brother Bland got furiously in earnest pending the filibuster; no wonder, either. There sat democrats smoking and smiling in serene indifference to the calling of their names, and no quorum could be had, though the saucy mem bers were in full sight. Their indiffer ence vanished like lightning when Mr. Bland scorched them by calling them anarchists and revolutionists. And when irate Mr. Bland repudiated his plaoid came and said: "If we resolve ourselves into a body of anarchists, and if some one in that gallery should pour down a dynamite bomb and explode it among ua ne would be no less and no more of an anarchist than members of this house," then you should have heard the hisses and the cries of shame."
