Devoted to the Interests of the Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union and Other Kindred Organizations. TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12, 1891. If"' ' ft. ' THE GREAT NORTHWESTERN NORMAL SCHOOL, STANIIEKKY, MO. VOL. II. NO. 51. TIIE KENTUCKY ELECTION. The following letter from the People's candi date for attorney-general arrived too late for our last week's lisue Editor. To the Editor of Thx Advocate. Thecanvass In this state ends next Monday. Its Importance cannot be over estimated; but in order that a Bmall vote (if such Is to be our hard fate) may not utterly depress our friends elsewhere, I desire to way a few words now of the dif ficulties that have beset us. In the first place, we had but little money to pay speakers and buy our papers, our people being mostly poor or hard run for ready cash. The Cincinnati convention met so late that we had to hurry up our nomina tions, hence our state convention was small and our nominee for governor, Barbour,declined about the middle of...

r. ., V-- --0 THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD BUILD MIL ROADS. For The Advocate and such papers as will kindly copy. I notice, reading the articles of many of your correspondents, that there seems to be b misunderstanding of our system of government. While the People's party advocates government ownership and control of the railway systems, we should bear in mind that we have a duo government, consisting of a state and a national government. The state govern ment in the main, is what the citizen has to deal with, while the national govern ment is a government of the states. To form the national government, the states ' entered into a compact, and delegated to Congress and the United States certain powers as set forth and defined in the constitution of the United States. To prove that the general government is a government of the states, Instead of the people, it is only necessary to call to mind that in amending the constitution of the United States, the proposition is submit ted to the Legis...

THE 'MACHINERY OF EXCHANGE To the Editor of Thk Advocatk. The money question Is certain to be discussed very fully in the future de spite the effort of old party managers to keep It out of sight by the tariff ques tion. Mr. Carnegie, In his"AB Cof Money," has discussed this money question as seen by a millionaire manufacturer in his palatial counting room and In the in terest of the rich. Others have followed, viewing the question from various stand point. I beg leave to use the columns of your paper for a brief discussion of the money question as seen between the handles of the plow by him who holds the handles and performs the initial act in the production of food for the nation and in the interest of the tollers of earth. Money is defined as a medium of ex change. Farm machinery Is a medium of production on the farm. Money per- forms the same function and holds the same relation to commerce that farm machinery does in and to agriculture. Of what shall money be made? Farm machiner...

Tim ; imvociria. 5 THE SUB-TREASURY SCHEME. In the Kansas Fanner of August 5 is a communication from Col. W. A. Harris, of Leavenworth county, which has been widely published and com mented upon. A reply has been pre pared by Assistant State Lecturer Scott, but owing to its length and the lateness of its receipt we are unable to use it this week. The careful reader of Mr. Harris' article will find very little in it that deniabds a reply. Like all attempts made against this measure, it betrays a want of knowledge of what it really is, and what it proposes to do; and assertion is offe red where argument is required. We shall very briefly notice the most important points. The Colonel is mistaken when he says an additional claim was made at Ocala to the broad principles upon which a victory had been nearly won. The sub-treasury scheme was pro mulgated at St Louis in December, 1889, was under discussion all over the country for a year, and was sim ply ratified at Ocala by instructed dele...

"THINKING AND ACTING." Under the above title the Kansas City Times reviews the criticisms of The Advocate upon a former edito rial in that journal, and this review contains a few statements that merit consideration. The Times claims to be consistent in its change of attitude towards the Alliance. We are not prepared to dispute this proposition. It was undoubtedly consistent for the Times to pat the Kansas Alliance on the back when it proposed to defeat the Kepublican party in our state, and it is also undoubtedly consistent in its opposition to the Alliance when it threatens the integrity of the Dem ocratic party of Missouri; but this does not disprove the claim of The Advocate that a change has taken place in the attitude of the Times towards the organization. That change, according to its own state ment, dated from the Cincinnati con vention, when the People's party be came national. The Times says it is the Alliance that has changed that "when the' movement was first organized it...

12303 " "FUSION opposed." "Kansas Democrats Stand Alin'-Tnion with the People's Party is not to be De-8ired"-A Review. liY JOHN DAVIS. M. C. (Continued from last week.) To the Editor of Tub Advocate. The address Bays: "The Democratic party stands for individualism against ln stltutionallsm." If that statement is true, then the boasting old party stands for savagery against civilization. The address claims that the old party stands for the "scattered and segregated individuals who constitute the mass of society, as against corporations and all manner of centralized forces, by which the united energies of the many are molded by the few." That is the allegation of the address. And yet, that very address brands the efforts of the people to protect them selves against corporations as "violations of the constitution," and worse than "half crazed communism." This special address is written for the express and avowed purpose of opposing the present uprising of the peepla for their own pro t...

8 KOBUST MENDACITY. Has the Currency Been Contracted ? Stalwart Lying vs. Orthodox Facts and Figures. To the Editor of Thb Advocate, TheTopeka Capitvl'ot Sunday, July 20, h&3 an article on the monetary circu lation of the United States, In review of Senator Peffer'a discussion of the sub ject As the small-fry papers of the two old parties will take the Capital's men dacity for gospel, a few remarks on the subject In reply may not bo amiss. In the first place, the Capital states that there has been no contraction of the currency in this country since the war; but, on the other hand, a gradual expan sion, so that the per capita of money is now equal to, or even greater, than in 1SGG. Mendacity does not seem to be so fatal a crime now as in the days of Ana . nlaa and Sapphlra, otherwise the Capital man's friends would certainly feel con cerned for his safety. The Capital says: - The judge's main error was in relation to the alleged contraction of the currency. He agrees with N. A. ...

14- cheap living. From Locomotlye Firemen's Magazine. Mr. Edward Atkinson labors In season tad out of season to reconcile working men and women to low wagsa by showing them how cheap they can procure three square meals a day.. To do this they should have one of hla cook ctoves so that there may be the least per cept of waste possible. It is held by Mr. Atkinson that his "cooker" saves fully one-half of the expense, so that if a man receiving 75 cents a day would use two of his "cookers," he would save the other half, in which case, employers could still further reduce wages. A re port says, that "as an illustration of what he (Mr. Atkinson) believes Is easily ac complished, he gave a dinner last week at his house to a party of ten well-known gentlemen, who, with the members of his household, constituted seventeen per sona provided for. The dinner was of five or six courses, and the entire cost of the food supplied, including fruit, was $2.20, making the per capita cost of the dinner...

The following from a staunch Repub lican paper ia refreshing. It shows that it Is still possible for a man to edit a Re publican paper and not entirely forget hid manhood: The more we investigate this matter the more we are inclined to believe that Judge McKay's action was an honest endeavor to protect an insane man's property, and in this he should be supported by all honest men. The oontest was between a guardian appointed by the probate court for the in sane man, and the receiver of the land who had charge of the property as the custodian of the district court. The question of con tempt oomes upon the right of the judge to accept the restitution bond tendered by the guardian.

thju Azyv-OGAsmn. USURY AND DEBT. To the Editor of Th x Advocatb. - The greatest of all causes operating to oppress and rob labor, resulting in these frequent conflicts between It and capital la usury commonly called interest. It is utterly Impossible to right the existing wrongs without abolishing the twin brothers of iniquity called "rent" and "Interest" We may Increase the volume of money to $100 per capita, and it will be only a question of time when the present state of affairs will be again the order of things. It is rent and interest that robs labor, and as well seek to save a burning building without first extin guishing the ilames as to right the pres ent slavery without abolishing rent, in terest and all laws for collection of debts. Money obtained through rent or Interest Is not the result of production. A dollar will not produce like a fruit tree or a ker nel of wheat or corn. Therefore he who obtains wealth or means for a living through rent or interest is singly trans ...
