Under this title the Memphis Ap-peal-Avalandie, discussing the prin ciples and demands of the Alliance, says: Better, far better, to go to defeat than to sub mit to dictation of those whom God and nature Intended for subordinates and subalterns. Just so. Thanks for your frank ness. Jxbiiy Simpson said In bis speech In this city last Sunday that prohibition was the policy of "our party." Perhaps Mr. simpson is right, but his hearers would search the platforms of "our party" a long time before they found any proof of It. Emporia Republican. And they would search a long time before they would find any proof of it in the Republican party outside of its platform. It is stated on the authority of the State Journal that some of the Re publican leaders at the recent confer ence in this city expressed the hope that the Democrats and the People's party would fuse this year in order that the question might remain in doubt, who was responsible for the victory. This is the ver...

G TUSH AOVOQAfTZa' NATIONAL BANKS. . We desire to commend the Hatch inson News for its evidently honest effort to fairly discuss one of the leading questions at issue between the People's and Bepnblican parties, We have watched the Bepnblican press carefully ever since this contest commenced, and this is the first ef fort bearing signs of honesty on its face to depart from the rule of ridi cule, slander, forgery and perjury, that has characterized the policy of the Bepnblican press and Bepnbli can leaders in this state. - The effort has our most respectful acknowledge ment and shall claim our most re spectful consideration. It is assumed by the News that there is no profit to national banks in their circulation. In view of this assumption we took occasion to make a few inquiries in our former article, the answers to which are not clear. Perhaps the questions were over looked. Those that are attempted to be answered are not made at all clear. We asked, "if the issue of na tional bank...

7 A PAETY DESTITUTE OP PRINCIPLES. The Democrat of July 8th finds in The Advocate a sentiment so foreign to Democratic ideas that it is moved to exhibit a very bad spirit. Tbe Ad vocate is opposed to fusion with the Democratic party and it exercised its right of free speech by saying bo. This is an offense so rank in the eyes of our cotemporary that its rage is at once excited and it indulges in reflec tions which are entirely unjustified by facts. The Democrat says: It Is of course high minded to talk about the glorious principles of the party, contempt for spoils, etc It is of course foreign to the policy of the Democrat to think of conduct ing an election on principle. It has no principles. Its party is and al ways has been in a hopeless minority in this state. It would be a very pleasing circumstance if the rising popularity of . the People's party could be made available to boost a few aspiring Democratic politicians into lucrative positions. Having no principles of its own to ...

Here are the first planks of their de ceiving, elastic and fruitful platform: First The Republican party of Iowa, in convention assembled, gives renewed ex pressions of devotion to the principles of the national Republican party, and declares acceptance of those principles to be the bond of union with the Republican party of Iowa. Second We commend the patriotic, wise and courageous administration of President Harrison. Third We commend the Republican party in the last Congress for its redemption of pledges made the people, and revision of the tariff in the interest of home industry, and of its work in behalf of liberal provis ion for pensions for old soldiers in accord ance with the pledges of the nation.

Mr. President, Brother$ and 8teter$: The subject of women in the Alliance is one of deep interest to us; and when I sat down to prepare this paper I won dered what I could say that would be of interest. Could I say anything new? Ah no; but there are somethings that bear repeating, and bo we tell them o'er and o'er until we are sure all will under stand. Why she is here and of how much benefit she may be to the order, can be answered thus: This is an organ ization formed for the uplifting of thou sands of toil-worn men and women, who had become discouraged and disheart ened at the state of affairs. They saw plainly that something must be done, and that quickly, if we would save our homes and c...

INC02IIN0 AGS. To the Editor of ThAdvoca!t: A fundamental proposition, and end by which all social and industrial problems must be solved, ia the irre pressible conflict between right and wrong; between justice and Injustice, at all times, among all people, in all coun ties, which will never cease; which can never be successfully repressed by com promise; which will continue to wage until right and justice shall be triumph antly enthroned as the sovereign ruler of the peoples. And by the term, "the peo ples" Is comprehended not the inhabi tants of a state, of a country, of a .conti nent, of a hemisphere, but of the world. Any proposal for reform that does not rest upon the fatherhood of Qod and the brotherhood of man must fall short and fail. Right and justice are universal and must come to rule universally; as uni versally as man inhabits the earth. What is wrong as between individuals is also wrong as between nations. A na tion can no more nrosper at the expense of another than an...

.3 any one within its natural deposit llmita 13 returned to it again within a month. The bank loans the same money again. Besides it is usually the depository of the town or county treasurer, who deposits the people's money, which is, by the ac comodating bank, loaned to the farmer, artisan and business man, which facts demonstrate conclusively that the people borrow their own money from themselves through a middle man, to whom they pay interest on their own money. This Is our enlightened nineteenth century. And still we have objectors against the government (the people) loaning money to the people (themselves) without agents. It is not any wonder, if we continue our financial system, and Mr. Shearman's figures, that such men like him will ob ject to It The next step in the direction of right and justice to themselves the people should take possession of and run in the interest of themselves all public methods of travel and commerce the railroads, telegraphs, steamboats, stage coach...

KRHJH' ADVOCATI3. SHAWNEE COUNTY POLITICS. There is a patriotic duty resting upon the members ol the People's party of Shawnee county which it is hoped will be conscientiously ob served. This county has enjoyed the proud (?) distinction ef being the banner ltepublican county of the state. That party has exercised a po litical power here that has been abso lutely dictatorial. It has been re garded as beyond question. Its policy has been controlled, and its candidates have been named by an unscrupulous ring which has sought its own pre ferment as a condition even to party triumph. In this it has until recently been eminently successful. The masses of the people, both of country and city, have become tired of this ring rule, and they are ready to cut loose whenever they can find a suita ble place to go. The opportunity of success is presented to the People's party in the approaching campaign, and the question remains to be solved whether this opportunity will be use lessly thrown away....

THE SCHOOL BOOS QUESTION. We have recently come into posses sion of a circular issued by a county superintendent of one of the counties of this state upon the subject of uni formity of text books. As it appears to us, the logic of this circular is ex tremely faulty and the object sought to be accomplished by it very unde sirable at the present time. The fact that the last Legislature failed to enact any law relating to the school book question is urged as a reason for the adoption of county uniformity of text books at the annual school meeting, to be held in a few days. This circular says: Should county uniformity carry, we would con tract for five years, provUHng our Ley Mature tM not give u relief within that time; but It so, the contract la to become null and void. It will occur to anyone who will give the subject a moment's thought that the reason given by this county superintendent for the adoption of county uniformity is the very best reason in the world why nothing of the kin...

TLU2 ADVOCATES. V WttERS IS THE CHURCH IN THI3 PEOPLE'S CONTEST T A correspondent furnishes us an article clipped from the Mid-Continent religious journal(Presbyierian) published at St Louis, Mo., to cer tain parts of which he very properly takes exception. He sent to Bey. D. C. Milner of Manhattan, the Kansas editor of the paper, a criticism of the objectionable paragraphs, which that gentleman declined to publish on the ground of its partisan character. Par tisanship, in his estimation, consists of a defense of the people against the insults of dominant parties and of servile churches. Our correspondent furnishes us with the criticism which he submitted to the reverend editor, together with.his letter declining its publication. We give them entire in order that the people may judge upon whose shoulders the charge of partis anship justly rests. The following are the paragraphs of the Mid-Con tinent which suggested the criticism: We confidently hope that these munificent gifts of Pr...

0 A GRAND LETTO FROM BROTHER BAKER. To tfca Editor of Thk Advocatb, We have just got through a two days' session of the Republic county Alliance. Had an Interesting time. Hon. John Davis, of Junction City, and ex-Coro-mander-in-Chlef of the G. A. R, Paul Vandevoort, of Lincoln, Nebraska, ad dressed the people of Belleville during the session and were enthusiastically re ceived. Yes, the Alliance and the third party are all going to pieces so much so that the old party bosses have completely lost control of the people in this county. It la encouraging to notice that some of our most enthusiastic members are those who in the start opposed a third party, and thought we could get what we de manded by clinging to the old party of platforms and promises; but the scales are falling from the eyes of the people and It la only necessary to present the truth to them, backed up by good, sound sense, to see a most complete victory in 1892. This is being done as rapidly as possible. We can congra...
