THE ADVOCATE, 183 J. MISTAKEN VIEWS OF PBOSPERITY. There ia a wide-spread, popular notion of national prosperity which entirely overlooks the very first ele ments essential to true national thrift and well-being. If trade is fair, prices reasonably good and the general industries of the country us ually active the country is said to be in a prosperous condition. If the revenues of state and national governments meet the expenditures and leave a moderate surplus in the treasury, the nation is said to be wealthy and flourishing. This is as far as the observation of the general public extends. All of these conditions may exist and still the very first elements oi real prosperity be wanting. Within a comparatively few years industrial conditions have undergone remark able changes. The factory has su perceded the private work-shop, and and the machine has taken the place of the artisian. The means of pro duction have been multiplied while at the same time human labor has been displaced. ...

1895, 7 THE ADVOCATE. THE IOWA REPUBLICAN CONVENTION. Next to John Sherman, William B. Allison of Iowa, may be regarded as the next chief fuglemen of the re publican party; and hence the re publican state convention of Iowa with Mr. Allison as its moving spirit, like the convention of Ohio under the inspiration of John Sherman, has peculiar significamce as fore shadowing the policy of the party in the next national campaign. These two state conventions, together with the national republican league, leave no doubt that the tariff humbug is to be revived as the chief instrument of deception. The two old frauds seem equally willing to agree to this. In the Iowa platform a long plank is devoted to this subject. It con gratulates the people upon the re turning prosperity of the country, rejoices in each instance of labor re employed, wages restored and indus try re-established upon a prosperous basis; assuming, of course, that the fool people will accept the wind work of the old party pr...

It will be an all day rally. A man who is now willing to admit that he voted for Morrill would make an attraction for a dime museum.

THE ADVOCATE, 1835, 0 the people in not electing a mayor who would continue in office a man whose term of office expired two years ago, but who was continued in office by the re quest of his friends that he might retire with his debts paid and gratitude un speakable for the kindness. I not only allowed him to hold the office the first year, but without request gave him the second year also. "Supposing after our last state elec tion your party had been told by the state senate that the appointments made by our 'great redeemer' must not be confirmed, and thereby deprive you of the fruits of that victory? The capital that had been drawn from the state by lack of confidence in the late adminis tration might not have returned to bless our people; railroads, stock yards and other corporate interests .would still filch from our people their hard earned money for want of proper legislation; emigration that had been turned away would not now be rushing uponus; in fact the many blessings that...

. 1833 11 THE ADVOCATE, The Golden Idol. Editor Advocate: Man ia a pe culiar animal. In all ages of the world he has manifested a wild desire to set up idols of some kind. This desire has been utilized by po litical chicanery of sharpers to rob their fellow-men of the fruits of their labor, and live without hard labor themselves. The Caucasian race pre tends to be civilized, and yet 100 years from now the people who live then will look down upon us with the same pitying contempt at our barbarism and ignorance, with which we look down upon the people who lived dur ing the reign of feudalism in Europe. We laugh at the ignorant Hottentot in Africa, who, in his brutish super stition, worships the sun, a cow or a stone, or carries a pebble as a fetich. Are we, as the superior race, any bet ter or more reasonable? "Scratch the gilt from our civilization and you will find barbarism." Which is the worse, to worship the golden dollar or the golden idol? What else is it but fetich worship and...

THE ADVOCATE, 123! regard to the enactment of these pria oiplaa into law. The party that adopted such abasia for its platform would be radical oa the stump, but conservative in regard to the enactment of those in the true and t roper sense when in power. Oihar parties are pledged to enact into law whatever a majority of the party favors. This party would be pledged to support what ever a majority of the party favored, but pledged to enact nothing that a ma jority cf the people did not favor. In other words, it would be the true dem ooratio party, the true republican party, the true People's party.

The list might be extended ,to a great length, including parks, libraries, canab, wharves, docks, courts of law, etc., but every intelligent person knows the dif ference between public and private service, although but few realize the great Importance of the distinction. Public utilities are mostly of com paritively recent origin, and are the product of modern civilization, and of its discoveries and inventions. Un civilized countries do not have them to any extent or perfection, nor were many of them known anywhere until within the last fifty years, and some only for even a much briefer period.

THE ADVOCATE. 5 WRONG AGAIN. The Capital, in its issue of Jane 20, undertakes to answer some ques tions of a correspondent relative to the free coinage of silver, and either through ignorance or for some other cause makes the customary misstate ment of matters of fact. For in stance, it says: The silver men, who always insist that the amount of silver in a silver dollar is a dollar, regardless of what the market says, maintain that the so-called "seigniorage" ia so much olear cash to the government, eto. Now the silver men insist upon no such thing as the Capital states. On the contrary, they insist that the amount of silver in a dollar is not a dollar until the government puts the stamp upon it which declares that it shall be a dollar. They further in sist that the amount of gold in a gold dollar is not a dollar until the gov ernment stamps it as such. The very thing the silver men are kick ing about is that the government freely puts its stamp upon all the gold brought to the mint...

The fcicuccption by the courts of uncon stitutional prerogatives, the silence of tha press upon the subject and the peaceful acquiescence of the people constitute the most alarming foa tores of the rapid growth and com plete supremacy of aristocracy in America. The most arbitary exer ciso of this unwarranted judicial an thority in the case of the American Railway union failed to call forth a single protest from the old party press, and it is not likely that any protest would be uttered so long as this government by injunction should be limited to workingmen and tramps. Evidently the jadiciary of South Carolina has recently made a mis take in applying this injunction pro-1 cess to liquor dealers. That is touching the aristocracy in a tender spot.
