TH2D ADVCOATS 5 The Kansas Commoner quotes an Advocate editorial directed to Repub lican editors and credits to the Pitts burg Kansan Whose fault is it? Did the Kansan steal it, or did the Commoner make a mistake? ' We would most respectfully call the attention of the Clay County Critic to the action of the Demo-Re-publican party in Judge Nicholson's and Judge Doster's districts. Are there any indications of "fusion" there? Tub county Alliance of Sumner county has issued a challenge to both the Republican and Democratic par ties to furnish a man to discuss the sub treasury plan in the city of Wel lington with B. E. Kies, of the Kan sas Commoner. Will they respond? We might, if necessary, remind our Eighth street contempory that the several prominent farmers who seemed to give him so much uneasi ness on Sabbath day propose to con tinue working their several farms until every noxious Republican weed is eradicated from Kansas soil. "LELAND, WE HAD TO 1)0 IT." We would mildly suggest th...

G THE CAPITAL LV 1830 VS. THE CAPITAL IN 1891. In the last two issues of The Advo cate we have published articles from Geo. C. Ward and from Hon. John t Davis, conclusively demonstrating that the Capital does not agree with the secretary of the treasury and other good orthodox authority in re lation to the currency in circulation at various periods since the war. We now propose to show that it does not agree with itself. In order to do this it will be necessary to quote quite liberally from its columns. The fol lowing is from its editorial in review of Senator Peffer in the issue of July 26,1891: The judge's main error was in relation to the alleged contraction of the currency. He agrees with H. A. Dunning, late asso ciate editor of Polk's Washington organ, that the currency in actual circulation per capita in 1806 was $52.01. To obtain these figures he went to the report of the secre tary of the treasury, which distinctly states that the actual circulation in that year was $25.50 p...

THUS railroads is proven by its succefsasa "receiver" in numerous instances. When a company gets into a bad tangle it has long been the custom for the road to go into the hands of a receiver until its troubles are untangled. Then the gov ernment hands it back to the incompe tent company. It may be, as alleged, that it is a "se rious thing for the government to own and manage the roads." But my reply is like that of the girl whose mother told her that it was a serious thing to get married. The girl replied, "I know, mother, it is a eeriouB matter to get mar ried, bui It is a great d al more serious not to." As the -milter now stands the roads are bankruptingthenation. When they issued and sold that five billions of watered stock, the money received made millionaires by the thousands, and the income from that water is making millionaires by the hundred each year. Still one more point must not be lost sight of. When we are making million aires by the hundreds and thousands, the same ag...

11X12 ADVOCiVTSa PROTECT OUR BREAD. The machinery of the law has not been put to work too speedily against the fraudulent use of ammonia and alum in Baking Powders. Both health and the pocket of the people are demanding protection. The legislatures of New York, Illinois and Minnesota have taken this matter of adulteration up, and especially that of Baking Powders. It will be in the interest of public health when their sale is made a misdemeanor in every State in the UNION, and the penalties of the law are rigidly enforced. There is no article of human food more wickedly adulterated than that of Baking Powder. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is the only pure cream of tartar powder having a general sale that is free from ammonia, alum or taint of any kind of impurity. It makes the sweetest and lightest bread, biscuit and cake that are perfectly digestible whether hot or cold. It costs more to manufacture Dr. Price's than any other baking powder. It is superior to every other known and...

ram. iUDvooATin, peace and refuse to oppose their brethren who are laboring this field with an eye single to the well-being of their fellow wlake haste slowly," la a good motto for all to adopt who are earnest seekers ifor the highest form of truth that may be made serviceable in this great irrepressi ble conflict now being waged with a fear ful energy between the organized and vigilant owners and abettors of en trenched capital and the awakening of brave, considerate, determined and edu cated toilers, whose brawn and brain il lustrates and glorifies labor. It behooves all the workers of the People's party to "prove all things and hold fast to that which is good;" and, while it Is said the young are often slaves to novelty, while the old are slaves to custon, yet In this great fight which is now on and growing more fierce, may it never be said of a publicist, a representative of the People's movement, that he was so slow in his light against a common enemy that" he seemed to be but ...

THUS ADVOCATE SENATOR PLUMB TELLS TALES. In the United States Senate, on March 2, 1801, the agricultural appropriation bill then pending, Senator Plumb said: The Senate last year passed an amend ment giving a bounty of 2 cents a pound on maple sugar, which is not only not a na tional industry, but is the production of an article of luxury. After it was passed as a matter personal to himself, on statements made by members of the finance commit tee, that it would help to elect him (Mr. Morrill) to the Senate from Vermont, it was kept on because his colleague (Mr. Ed munds) threatened in writing that if it was not kept on he would vote against the tariff bill. Mr. President, I do not like these things, but they are facts. The whole maohinery of the United States government in regard to the tariff and the whole system, revolves around the bounty of 2 cents a pound on maple sugar, and a system which has been called a national system was made a tender to a few people who own maple sugar t...

2 TI-IIS ADVCOATIS. T1IE SUB-TREASUttY PUN. To the Editor of The Advocate. I saw lately by the St. Louis Republic and other leading Democratic dallies that Colonol Harris, of Llnwood, was to pub lish an attack on the "the sub treasury scheme" (as he termed it) in the Kansas Farmer. . I was very impatient until the Farmer came, and when It did, lo, and behold! not only Colonel Harris but Hon. A. C. Shlnn makes an attack also. The joy with which these attacks are received by the monopolistic press of both parties and the fact that it was thought good enough for "special" to the St Louis Republic and other papers, Impels me to ask a hearing for the other side, al though it is with much fear and trembling that I take Issue with such eminent gentlemen and leaders as these are. Colonel Harris seems to be entirely oblivious of the fact that at the great St. Louis meeting In addition to the "da mands," a plan was endorsed by which it was believed money could be given or loaned directly to t...

THE MUTUAL PROTECTIVE ASSOCIATION. From the Kansas Commoner. This week we give considerable space for the benefit of the above organization, and would call the attention of our read ers to the articles by A. Y. McCormick, Noah Allen, general attorney, Western Advocate, "How to Get Your Legal Hights," by "L," and another by Mr. Fish, president Seventh Congressional District Alliance. The organization has already accomplished much good, saved thousands of dollars to mortgaged farm ers, is endorsed by most of the leading, earnest Alliance men of the state, and Is destined to become a power that will save many a home from virtual confisca tion by the conscienceless money power that knows no law but greed and no jus tice but selfishness and plunder. We consider this to be one of the best organ izations for mutual protection yet found ed, and advise farmers everywhere to in vestigate its methods and operations fur ther, then if satisfactory, become a mem ber.

Your cause Is the most noble among men. You are hare to denund jus'lea, and not charity, but eiua' rights for al.

v. .03333 iVOOATIIl x THE ATTITUDE OF THE SOUTH. Every reader of both Republican and Democratic papers, north and south, has not failed to observe the tremendous effort everywhere put forth to inculcate the idea that the people of the south have no sympa thy with the People's party that they are Democrats and will remain so. If they feel perfectly sure upon this point it is difficult to see why they should devote so much space to the effort to prove it When it comes to be known that there is a perfect understanding between the Alliance people of the north and south upon this, as upon many other questions, they may readily see what consum mate aspes they are showing them selves to be. When the question of organizing a new party was consid ered at Ocala, it was decided, after many consultations, that a conven tion should be called at some time in the future for the special purpose of considering its feasibility. The date was at one time fixed but afterwards reconsidered, and February ...

The numerous letters of encouragement and commendation we receive leave no room for doubt upon this subject. At the close of this second year of earnest labor in the interest of the people, we desire to impress upon the minds of our friends the importance of still farther enlarging the sphere of our influence; and, to put the mat ter in still another light, the. im portance of so sustaining us that un der do possible contingency can we be driven from our field of labor. We are aware that, as a rule, our peo ple are not in aflluent circumstances; but we believe that every member of our party in Kansas is fully aware of the power of The Advocate, and that it is justly entitled to a liberal share of the credit for the triumphs al ready won; and,' knowing this, they would regret to see its influence in any way dimini...
