race jin vooiyria THE ACTION AGAINST JUDGE M KAY. The late hour at which the facta were received at this office relating the case against Judge McKay prevents any edi torial reference to it this week. The fol lowing facts are kindly furnished us by the Alliance Tribune. The circumstance of the case are as fol lows: Albert Honeywell owns a farm of two quarter sections, 320 acres, of fine farming iana in Harper county, on which mere is a mortgage of $3,000 given to secure a loan made by a loan company of which W. F. Thayer is president and B. A. Burr resident agent.The farm with its crops is worth $6,000 and it was for the purpose of!beating Honey well out of his equity therein that the suit was oegun. The whole proceedings nave been most disgraceful and only by the interna tion of a just judge with lots of nerve the villainy would have been complete, and it may be that it will yet be consumated. The legal aspect is as follows: The note and mortgage was transferred from the company to...

HliS. MARY & LEAS2 IN WESTMOUXLaND, KANSAS. Enormous Turnout-Over 7,000 People Pres ent, and that When Everybody was Busy with Harvest-What Does it Meant To the Editor of Thjb Advocate. At the request of many frienda, I will try to give a brief account of Slater Lease's tremendous ovation In our county last "week. About the 4th of July the first bills were struck stating that Mrs. Lease would talk to us on the 17th Inst. Many , of us thought what the g. o. p. press tried to make us believe, that owing to the extremely busy season there would not be much of a turnout But early in the morning on the 17th, carriages, buggies, carts, hacks, lumber wagons and everything that people could ride in or on, came pouring into the fine grove adjoining our county seat, until long after noon. Every sub-Alliance in the county was there, and thousands of people besides. Sister Lease, in response to her introduction, just before dinner, said: "I was told that tne Alliance was going to pieces in ...

Devoted to the Interests of the Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union and Other Kindred 03 oizations. VOL. II. NO. 50. TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5, 1891. 81.00 PER YEAR. "FUSION OPPOSED.' "Kansas Democrats Stand Alone"-"Unlon with the People's Party is not to be De sired" A Review. BY JOHN DAVIS, M. C. To the Editor of Thb Advocate. Under the above headlines I find In the daily papers proceedings which pur port to give an account of "Democratic day" in Topeka, July 27, 1891. The principal part of the document is an ad dress to the Democrats of Kansas. That address I am asked to review for your most excellent and widely circulating journal. The request puts me some what in the position of the farmer mem ber of the Vermont Legislature, who was expected to reply to a very windy sneech of a lawyer which amounted to little. The member said he would do his best, but complained that it "wrenched him awfully to kick against nothing." The address soars very high In most places, very...

- GOVERNMENT OWNEJJSHIP OF THE RAILROADS. NO. IV. To the Editor of Tin Advocate. The proceeding three articles upon the subject of "Government Ownership of Railroads,'? having been written hastily, amidst the press of other duties, were perhaps, prepared In a loose and ramb ling manner, and do not present the peo ple's case as strongly and conclusively as it might be presented. Such articles were intended to draw and direct the people's attention to the various phases of the subject under consideration and suggest some arguments as to the feasi bility of the purchase of the railroads by the people. I had expected to write a fourth article in which I should take up and elucidate item for item, the various savings in "Operating Expenses," that might be effected by government ownership and operation of railroads. Since the manu script for the three articles already pub lished in The Advocate was put into your hands, there has appeared in the August number of the Arena, an article upon ...

TH22 AX3VCOTZl 3 WHY NOT PROTECT THE FARMER? To the Editor of Thk advocate. I rather dislike to spoil bo good a pa per as you publish, by my poor efforts, but since there seems to be no one pull ing on my string permit me to say that I think thefarmer and laborer as worthy of protection as any other class of citizens. It maybe that some are ready to say they are protected like others. I think not "Manufacturers are protected by trusts and combines from home competi tion and the government protects them from foreign competition by a tariff of nearly 40 per cent They have double protection. The lawyers and doctors are protected by legal prices for their services which are always high enough. Other professional men are protected by their combinations and the fewness of their number. All classes of laborers are at the mercy of all ill disposed hu manity. All except the farmer end la borer price their own productions. The farmer and laborer are the only Indis pensable parts of humanity, ...

THE 'ADVOOATE 5 - SENATOR PEFFEE'S MOBTUAUE STA TISTICS. Republicans everywere are de nouncing Senator Peffer as a defamer of the good name of his state, because of the mortgage statistics he has given to the public. The facts are he is simply giving the official figures of the census department, and these wiseacres, in their criticisms of him, fall far short of the real calamity howler. In The Advoate of July 2, 1890,we placed the indebtedness upon the farms of Kansas at $147,000, 000. These figures were obtained from statistics gathered from the several sub-Alliances of the state. As a large number of Kansas farmers were not connected with the order, and as some sub-Alliances did not report, we were confident at the time that our figures were too small. The official census report will justify this presumption. The Republican press and Repub lican officials bitterly opposed the proposition to make thismortgrge in debtedness a part of the eleventh census. They preferred that the peo...

c THE MARRIAGE OP THE BXEWEES AND DISTILLERS AND THE REPUBLICAN PABTY. The Republican party of Kansas assumes to be the sole exponent of temperance, of law and order, and the embodiment of the moral senti ment ef the state. Daring the cam paign last year it was insisted that the question of prohibition was the one great issue before the people. The People's party was loudly con demned because it insisted upon con ducting the campaign upon other issues. When the industrial con ference which assembled at. Cin cinnati on the 18th of May still de clined to permit the great economic questions so important to the interests of the people to be overshadowed by that of prohibition, the wail of Kan sas Republicans was both loud and long, and the degeneracy of the Peo ple's party was assumed to be fully established. We do not propose at this time to undertake any discussion of the question of prohibition. What we do propose to do is to revive a little history exhibiting the relation of the Rep...

TSXXS -AJDVOOA.T2H 7 national convention assembled, renew their allegiance to the principles upon which they have triumphed in six successive presi dential elections. And one of those principles was the Raster resolution of 1872. Never, during all the years since the mar riage of brewers and distillers to the Republican party, have they asked for legislation that they have not re ceived. The special privileges and favors enjoyed by them exceed any thing ever granted to any other class of American citizens if we except only the clippers of government cou pons, aud the narnition forms one of the most disgraceful chapters in the history of any nation upon the globe. As an evidence of the continuance of the marriage relation down to the present time we need only to cite the continuance of these privileges, and the disgraceful employment of the machinery of the department of state and the United States con sular service for the extension of the American beer trade in foreign coun tries. ...

0 TI-XES ADVOOATH THE "CAPITAL'S" INSIDE ANp OUTSIDE DO NOT TALLY. . The Capital in its editorial columns continues to tell its readers how solid the Democratic party remains in the south, and how ineffectual are the efforts of People's party speakers to create any interest in the new party, while its dispatches in the same issue tell 'of the outspoken People's party speeches, and the enthusiasm .they awaken among the people. As an illustration we quote from the dis patches in the is9ue of July 29 as fol lows: ST. Louis, July 28,-The Farmers' Alliance and the Knights of Libor of the Third and FoUrth.Congressloual districts of Texas are hold lug an encampmeut at Sulphur Springs and will continue for a week.

ADVOCA.T32J. 11 A MONUMENTAL LIAR. From tho Southern Alliance Farmer. Certain Georgia editors muBtlookto their laurels or the Topeka Capital will overthrow them. We thought that when it came to hard lleing on the Alliance that the partisan press of our own state could make even Baron Munchausen blush at his own insignificance, were he alive to-day. But a new rival to our home talent has sprung up in Kansas, and it is now a neck and nock race be tween the two states. A few days Bince the Georgia papers, under big headlines, published the startling information that, with one ex ception, every Alliance lecturer in Kan ' 'sas had repudiated the sub-treasury bill. McLallin, of the Topeka Advocate, writes us that it "is an unmitigated false hood, without a shadow of foundation." But last Saturday the Capital came but with a report that a letter had been re ceived In that city (name not given, of course,) from Georgia, saying that Jerry Simpson, General Weaver and other "ca lamity howlers"...

It has sometimes been op- posadat tailquarters In the west, but never in Wall street, where all the com moa policy of the two parties la arranged; and, where all the presidential candi dataaonboth sides are virtually nomi nated. The address before me says: "Why the Democratic party has survived for a century is because it Is the only party in this country's history which has stood up for the people against centralized power; for men against man official" In view of the fact that the party has entirely departed from Its first cardinal principles whenever it could hold the publlo offices by so doing, the above is quite facetious. Abraham Lincoln gives us a little Democratic history worth remembering in a letter dated, Spring field, Illinois, April 6, 1859.

T2H3 ADVOOilTia A STATEMENT OF FACTS. To the Editor of Tint Advocat. Judge O. W. McKay, of the Twenty fourth judicial district, Kansas, in decid ing the law case of Thayer vs. Honey well, was confronted with section 555, general statutes of Kansas. Judge Mo Kay construed that section to mean all the time just what It said and that it ap plied In this case of mortgage foreclosure. The supreme court has heretofore said that section 555 meant what it said, and applied In cases based on a promisory note; that a promisory note is a contract for the payment of money only. The caBelnhand is based on a promisory note, secured by a mortgage. By the en forcement of that Bectlon in Harper county, the judge, the attorney and the guardian of defendant were arrested and arraigned before the bar of the supreme court to show cause why they should not be punished for contempt for whatf The supreme court on the contempt trial said Judge McKay misconstrued the law, and section 555 did not apply to thi...
