9 ON TO CINCINNATI. The traoS'Hisssoiuri passenger as sociation has declined to grant any special rates west of Kansas City. Mr. Nicholson, of the Santa Fe, and others have made an earnest effort to secure rates, hat they have been re fased. We are not at present in formed what road is responsible for the failure. It will be necessary, in consequence of this action, for Kan sas delegates to purchase tickets only to Kansas City, for which they will have to pay full fare. From Kansas City to Cincinnati a rate has been granted of one fare for the round trip. The east bound trains provided for the delegates will leave Kansas City on Sunday morning at an early hour. It is therefore advisable to center at that point on Saturday evening. Headquarters of the Re form Press Association will be at the Blossom House, which is in the Union depot building. The routes from Kansas City to St. Louis will be over the Chicago & Alton and the Wa bash roads. It is learned by good authority that the ...

;. '.J''; V ikGAlIZlED EOBBEMT. -: To the Editor of The Advocati: From the annual report of the Kansas state board of railroad commissioners, I clip the following paragraphs: It is quite common, however, for inflated orators to assert that from $8,000 to $10,000 per mile is all that a railroad legitimately costs, and that all capitalization above that is "water." We have reports from which the foregoing figures have been taken, an itemized statement of the actual cash cost of 1,383 miles, 1,065 mile being in Kansas we refer to the Chicago, Kansas & Nebraska railroad. All of this road has been built within the past four years, under most fa vorable conditions as to cost of labor and materia, and built by, or under the auspices of, a company whose financial credit was high, enabling it to place securities upon the market upon very favorable terms; yet the actual cost and outlay for road and equipment, up to June 30,' 1889, was $29, v 204,497.33, or $21,083.93 per mile. There is no...

0 KANSAS AT THE WORLD'S FAIR. To tiie People of Kansas: The bureau of promotion organized by the convention held on the 23d and 24th days of April, 1891, to propose a plan by which the state of Kansas can make an exhibit at the World's Columbian Ex position, herewith presents a detailed statement of the methods adopted and the measures suggested to secure such exhibit. The convention wisely deter mined that the sum of $100,000 was necessary to make such a display of our resources and productions as will be creditable to our state. To raise this sum of money, it was determined that each county, and each railroad company operating a line within the state, should be called upon to pay such portion of the sum of $100,000 as the assessed value of the property of each county or rail road company bears to the total assessed value of the property of the state. The sum allotted to each county, based on county valuations less railroad property, is shown by the following table: Lincoln $000 Li...

Txim ADVOOAIXlU. 5 A HARD QUESTION. The Capital is very free to ask! questions, and very slow to answer them. It has recently asked the Atchison Champion a few leaders, which that journal has promptly an swered with characteristic frankness and much to the discomfiture of the Capital. The Champion, in closing its answer to the last question, takes occasion to ask Hudson if the Repnb lican state platform of 1890 was in tended as an expression of Republi can principles, or if it was adopted for buncombe? This is the question the Hutchinson News has repeatedly asked and failed to receive an answer. We suggest to the readers of the Capital that they watch its columns for the next two or three years for an answer to this question. ANOTHER OATH BOUND SECRET SOCIETY. There seems to be, just now, considerable agi tation to secure members for the Citizens' Alli ance. We wonder If the men who are asked to join that secret society understand the nature of "the oath they will be required to tak...

0 MEWED EVIDENCE OF DEVOTION TO PLUTOCRACY. The Topeka Capital quotes from a speech made by Daniel Webster, six ty-seven years ago, which it approves and from which the following extracts are made: Whenever a debt is allowed to be paid by any thing less valuable than the legal currency ia respect to which It has contracted, the differ ence between the value of the paper given In payment and the legal currency is precisely so much property taken from one man and given to another by legislative enactment. We have no occasslon for the precious metals as money, except for the purposes of circulation, or, rather, of sustaining a safe paper circulation. The Capital in playing the role of a somewhat evasive politician, hardly ever fails in coming in on the home stretch to take its rank withsnch monometalie journals as the St Louis Globe-Democrat, Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette, Philadelphia Press, New York Tribune, Hartford Courant, et al which affect to believe in a dom estic and foreign c...

POLITICAL SELF-LAUDiTIOX. In the Frank ZesZw of May 6, 1891, Kussell B. Harrison's paper ap pears the excessively laudatory notice of the national administration of Ben jamin Harrison: This is an American administration. It is in tended for the advancement, development, and protection of American interests. President Harrison Intrusted the state portfolio to one of the keenest and most popular of American statesmen. There was thus, at the outset of the administration, a combination of two powerful intellects the one impetuous, vigorous, alert and strategic; the other calm, patient, thoughtful and discerning. While the eloquent voice of Mr. Blaine has been heard in favor of reciprocity it was the masterly judgment of the president himself that led to the formulation of the act of Congress, giving him the power to secure recipro cal trade relations. It was the president him self who dictated the prompt and powerful letter to the governor of Louisiana, protesting against the New Orlean...

ft - TSS COFI'EYVILLK INVESTIGATION. Majority Kcport of the Investigating Com mittee on the Coffeyville Dynamite Bomb Explosion of October, 1888. We the undersigned, the members of the joint commltte beg leave to present oar views as to the circumstances sur rounding the explosion of dynamite at Coffeyville, and the parties connected therewith, as ascertained from the testi mony, hereto appended. As the theories indicated in the pre liminary report, we did not find any evi dence In support of the theories that the explosion was caused by carelessness in handling or the improper use of chemicals used in photography. The testimony of Mr. Uphamisthat he had no chemicals in his possession that were explosive. (Page 23.) Mr. Glass testifies that he saw such chemicals in his (Upham's) dark closet about ten days before the explosion (page 852) but was evidently mistaken. (See affidavit of David Parks, 592.) Upham testifies that he had the chemicals men tioned by Glass a year later. (Page 5...

the use It might have in future conflict (page 184.) He admits in his testimony that he re ceived pay for all services rendered to the Republican central committee at the regular price. It seems difficult to suppose any reason for a Republican governor to appoint C. A. Henrie to any position. No labor organization asked for his ap pointment. He was not a Republican. His personal character was such as to preclude his appointment to any position of trust or profit. He was known to be an avowed anar chist, or at least to be in sympathy with them. He had no recommendation from any one, except from Bion S. HutcTilns and Henry Booth. And why they requested his appointment can best be judged from the testimony of Mrs. Cougher, when she states that she heard Henrie say that "they dare not refuse him" (page 212.) It is Impossible to think of an explana tion of C. A.HenrIe's appointment, ex ceptthathe knew about the damnable plot of preparing and sending the box, and that, for the purpose of ...
