Devoted to the Interests of the Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union and Other Kindred Organizations. VOL. II. NO. 46. TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, JULY 8, 1091. 1.00 PER YEAR. THE GLORIES OF THE PLOUSIOCRATS. The publication of "The A B Col ' Money," In the June North American Review for 1891, with the special refer ence to It on its prefatory page by its Democratic editor a Representative In the Fiftieth Congress from New York- was noticed In a brief presentation at an early day by The Advocate, all of which was Indicative of the expressive language of our retired Ingalls as "an active coali tion of the conservative forces" In mone tary circles, sanctified by the corporate power of trusts. Republican papers In Kansas, at Topeka, Parsons, McPherson, Lindsborg and elsewhere have; sought to . hallow the name of Andrew Carnegie their hard money, former spoliation tariff champion and the Capital, of Topeka perchance in its ignorant and stumbling audacity has wondered who could answer t...

iug every nerve and nuking every possible sacrifice to buy gold to bets themselves from bankruptcy? Do you not know 1 hat the purchase of fifty millions of gold on European sooount in the last few months has checked production, paralyzed business and produced universal alarm? Do you not know that your "wise old bird," England, is paying a premium for gold to save herself from bankruptcy, and . that her leading financiers declare that it is impossible for her to "whistle away" bankruptcy unless she can increase her reserves of gold? WHT BNEXB AT TRANCE. Why sneer at Franoe for using silver? Have you forgotten that when the Barings failed the "wise old bird" was compelled to borrow from the Bank of Franoe to save , herself from immediate ruin? Is it ignor ance or insolence which inspires you to tell the people of the United States to buy gold? You know, or ought to know, that that is just what all the people of the civilized world are trying to do without success. Whoever buys gold mu...

I0ES33 &&CK?JlW1&, 7. i: t ' r i the foundation of money, bat value can be fixed only by supply and demand. The value of each unit of money, other things being equal, ia determined by the num ber of units in circulation. The only possible way of maintaining a fixity of the value of money is to keep a constant supply equal to the demand. If the supply and demand for money were constantly the same, its value would never change. C0MMEUCE, COMMODITIES AND MONEY' Senator Stewart tries to explain to this boasting teacher something concerning "foreign balances" as follows: . The exchange of the money of one country to that of another is not commerce. Com merce consists in the interchange of com modities. Money is for use at home. Com modities are for sale in all markets. No country should buy more commodities than it can pay for in its own productions. If it exports its money it creates contraction, stagnation and prevents production. For eign balances are not settled in money,...

We can also, if necessary, show cor responding variations during periods both prior and subsequent to these dates: One pound, troy weight, of gold was worth in VM 7500 KH5 . 1347 70.00 1412 83.M 1464 1M.M 1520 135.00 1549 "O.0O 1005 202-50 1C2G 222.60 1718 233.C2 Now if the "value" is in the "ma teriar and not in the "stamp," as the Capital would have its readers be lieve, what kind of a basis is this for a stable currency? Percival Elliot, speaking of this subject, says: Whatever la Itself possesses an embodied form and an Intrinsic value, must, as a material com modity, be subject to variation under the uni versal principle of product and demand. And, paradoxical as It may seem in theory.lt is never theless most lncontrovertably true in practice, that It Is the very attribute of intrlnslc...

0 7H2 FINANCES OF TUS 1X0SNTLVX EE PUBLIC. Ia giving our readers the promised correct presentation of the Argentine incney system, we desire to preface the statements of fact by a few pre liminary observations. It may be stated as an axiom that the press of any party that honestly seeks the best interests of the conn try, will endeavor to so enlighten the people upon all pnblio questions as to enable them to vote intelligently upon every issue. Any departnre from this coarse by the press of any party is proof, positive that its policy is not designed for the common good. We hold these propositions to be self evident and beyond the power of any sophistry to escape their force. Upon these axiomatic principles we propose to place the Republican party and its press on trial upon the issues relating to the financial policy of this govern ment. The most important plank of the Peoples' party platform demands the abolition of national banks, and the substitution of fall legal tender treas u...

But there is still another fact in connection with the finances of the Argentine Republic which our Re publican friends have not given to their readers. This fact also we glean from the official report of Con sul Baker of date December 22, 1889. He says: The year just closing has been a very remarka ble one for the Argentine Republic. It has throughout presented two almost contradictory phases-one marking the development of the country beyond anything heretofore known In Its history, the other exhibiting it as In the throes of a financial crisis. This seems like a paradox, yet It quite accurately states the situa tion. It undoubtedly is a paradox to an advocate of a single standard, hard money currency. But listen to a con tinuance of the consul's statement: The Impulse which I referred to In my last annual report as characterizing...

11 ST. LOUIS. We are situated to handle large lots of wool to the best advantage. Growers can bo satisfied on this point by forming a club and shipping together, sending one of their number along to see it sold. To single shippers or clubs shipping 50,000 pounds or inore, we will furnish trans portation free both ways for said representative. - If there is a prejudice against consigning, it should be dissipated when we invite wool men to transfer the field of sale from their homes, where buyers are limited in number, to our warerooms in a large market, where buyers are numerous. We will advance 8 to 10 cents per pound on heavy wools, and from 12 to 14 cents per pound on light shrinkage. FUNSTEN COMMISSION CO, W. TWEEDDALE, Civil and Hydraulic Engineer.

They work men, it is said, ten, twenty, thirty, forty or fifty hours at a stretch, as suits their own sweet will and pleasure, until, in some cases, engineers and con ductors are too much exhausted to be proper custodians of a train. Many lives and much property have been sacrificed by the Inability of men to keep awake. The corporations do not drive men to their tasks with whips, shotguns and bloodhounds, but through hunger, dis tress, lack of fair wages for fair work, and threats of discharge. That is the millionaire treatment of employes. On the other hand, as described by Mr. Garfield, in June, 1884, "These modern barons, more powerful than their mill tary prototypes, of the middle ages, own our greatest highways and levy tribute at will on all our vast industries." Senator Windom, in an official report to Congress In 1874, described our pres...

4 JN ' FROH CALIFORNIA. To the Editor of Thb Advocatb. We hear considerable talk about high compensations paid public officials such as Congressmen. Senators, and the prest dnt of the United States, who receiver $50,000 a year. Of course their pay Is rather steep, but we would not grumble so much about the high price paid, if they would only do something for the people; but they do nothing for the bene lit of the people, and what is worse they are constantly scheming with the Shy locks of Wall street to rob the people. The people pay these traitors a handsome nalary to do their duty as servants of the the people, but they utterly disregard the wishes of their constituency. They are always deaf to the cry of the people but the slightest hint from Wall street they are ever ready to obey. What have the presidents who have occupied the chair since the days of . Abraham Lincoln dtfne for the good of the people? They have done nothing, absolutely nothing, and they do not In tend to. Have ...

In 1810 the territory of Iowa had a population of 43,008; in 1890 it was 1,911, 800, thus making a gain in half a century of 1,808,828. In 1845, during the closing days of the administration of John Tyler, It was ad mitted Into the American union with the rights of statehood, it having been one of the group with Florida, Texas and Wisconsin.

o 4 TH2U iU3VOOiVri HOW THE SUB-TEEASUBY AND LAND LOANS WOULD B2NU1T LAB0X1B3. To the Editor of Thb Advocatb. In the Topeka Capital of June 28th, I find an article by J. 8. Turner, who states that the demands of the People's party for the government to loan money on farm products and real estate, are Incon sistent with their professed principles; that the sub-treasury plan, as well as the loaning of money by the government on land, would be of benefit to the farmefa only, and would be detrimental to the working men. Conceding the honesty of the writer, I will try to convince him that his conclu sions are based upon very shallow and superficial reasoning. It Is true, as he states, that under the proposed plan of loaning money on land and farm products, the wage earner could not borrow money, because he has no real estate or farm products to oiler as security, but admitting this does not prove that the wage earner would cot be benefitted by it The farmers constitute the largest class ...
