My Country How Lost. ( Continued Jrom page s.) be the yoke to the sons of free and noble sires, who never knew "serfdom" except in name? How utterly melancholy and devoid of hope's silver lining seems the proepect, when we see our civil and social rights gradually going from us in the usurpa tion of the octopus. It seems like a troubled dream passing across the shin ing empyrean of life. They go from us, never to return except by the interven tion of force, which, in their dire ex tremity, men have been known to adopt. It is difficult to concentrate publio opinion on the issues of the day, for, as a nation, we are "a house divided against itself," which cannot long endure, owing to our citizenship being composed of such a mixture of nations.

Fourth Those who hung back until the dawn of peace appeared upon the horizon, then hastened to show their (eleventh hour) patriotism by rushing into tthe service in time to assist in gathering the spoils of victory. Some of these succeeded in getting to the front in time for the surrender, but a majority of them were stranded at the recruiting camps or hospitals.

THE ADVOCATE. 439S change institutions to make them accord with the new ideas and sentiments, and that institutions can not, by any power, however despotic, be changed while the prevailing ideas and sentiments of the people remain unchanged. There was a time when the King of England was absolute. Parliament itself was created by the Jing as an assistance, and was his instrument, not his master. Did not even Elizabeth send members of the Commons to the Tower for speaking too boldly in debate? That was not so very long ago, yet, to-day, the leader of the majority in the House . of Commons is the actual ruler of England. The law is the same as it was in Elizabeth's time. It has never been formaly de clared that the King is not to be master any longer, but it would startle the nation were George III. to attempt some day to exercise the prerogatives Charles II. exercised within the lifetime of our grandfathers. What has produced this change, which will after awhile completely eliminate t...

MoManus and Smart's invention, complete, only weighs forty-six pounds, while nearly all lifting jacks alone' weigh over sixty pounds. The machines will sell for about $20 each. Atchison Champion, August 1. That is to say, every $20 expended by a railroad company in the pur chase of one of these machines will dispense with the services of eight men.

G THE ADVOCATE. AUG. 7 WHAT REPUBLICANISM HAS DONE FOB AMERICAN LABOR. There are two propositions which republican managers and the repub lican press have relied upon to estab lish the beneficial inflaence of the protective tariff system and the su premacy of the republican party ia the government of the United States which have not yet been confronted, so far as we have observed, by the most damaging witnesses that may be summoned to bear testimony against theaa. (1) It is claimed that under re publican administration of public af fairs, and under the benign influence of a protective tariff, the wages of labor have been constantly on the in crease from year to year; and, at the close of the last republican adminis tration, labor was amply rewarded, and the country was in the midst of a period of unprecedented prosperity. (2) It is claimed that this rise in wages, and this unexampled pros perity were only interupted by the accession of the democratic party to power March 4, 1893. Di...

President Cleveland's "Peaceful Method" for the ".Redress of Any Wrongs Done" Was "Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin." NO. VII. President Cleveland, in a letter dated September 27, 1887, addressed to M. P. Pelo, JEsq., the manager of the present Holland Dutch Maxwell Grant company, that came darkly into pos session of Steve Elkins' bogus tax titled Maxwell grant, says: If any wrongs are done to the settlers on the alleged Maxwell grant! their redress can be obtained through the peaceful method of the law which is fully adequate to protect every right of the citizen. Its faithful enforce inent Is due alike to the poor aud the weak, the wealthy and the strong. A PETITION.

Tax sale certificates are purchased by the county, which gives the county no money, and hence the necessity each year to increase the amount of taxes; and the annual taxes now, on a tract of vacant, dry prairie of 160 acres, which does not produce a cent of revenue, range from $15 to $35 each a year.

(Copyrighted, 1895, by Azel F. Hatch.) Chicago, July 25. The IIorr-Harvey silver debate was continued to-day be fore the usual intelligent audience. Ev ery one of the 200 seats was occupied and many stood in the aisles. The usual measure of enthusiasm prevailed on both sides. The condensed report follows: Mr. Horr I desire at the outset to call my opponent's attention to a state ment which he made in his criticisms upon Senator Morrill wherein he stated that the silver dollar of 412 grains was largely coined previous to the de monetization of silver and after the passage of the law of 1853. Brother Harvey said that those old dollars of 412 grains were coined for the people of Nevada, Colorado and perhaps Cal ifornia, between 1853 and 1873. Mr. Harvey No, I did not say that.

I now pro ceed to the question I was talking about. According to the report of the senate committee the decrease in the price of 226 leading articles on our farms and in our shops and factories since 1879 is only about 7 per cent, That is no more than the natural de crease in the price of such productions owing to the improvements of machln ery which I spoke to you about and which should always diminish the price to the consumers of the country.

Adam Smith would be mobbed by the poor of England if they should take to reading his book." "But, my dear Sydney, the poor do not read it; probably never will read it. Its doctrines will be in culcated by men who can induce the poor to accept them. Mind me; that book teaches a philosophy of life. That philosophy is, that the possession of money is the highest good; the getting of money the chief object of rational endeavor. That philosophy will win its way and prevail. Ambition will turn to money-getting instead of glory, and ostentation of wealth will take the place of the pageantry of lords and kings. The time will come, when, because of the philosophy of that book, scholarship, genius, manhood, beauty, bravery, manners, political posi tion, virtue, will count for nothing; but society will ask o...
