tCSEJ ADD VC OAJT The Alliance Commercial Convention. The convention of delegates and mem bers of co-operative societies assembled, according to the call, in representative hall in a two days' session. About 125 members were present. The session was earnest, enthusiastic and cordial, and the general feeling is that the meeting was a grand success. Mr. Noah Allen, on taking the chair as temporary chairman, gave the key-note to the proceedings by saying that the convention had no political significance and was of a purely commercial nature, No trust or monopoly was Intended to be formed, but the citizens of Kansas had determined to associate together for mu tual protection. P. B. Maxon was chosen permanent chairman and Fred L. Bailey, of Wich ita, secretary. The order of business was the discus sion of the following co-operative enter prises: General co-operation, J. II. Lathrop; courts and the effects of their decisions upon the business Interests of the day, Noah Allen and O. C. Jen...

rmn abvooatic INTELLIGENT FARM1KS. From the Cincinnati Enquirer. When asked whether the farmers of Ohio were in favor of free coinage, Mr. McKinley promptly answered, MNo. The farmers of Ohio are among the most in telligent of our population. They have been studying this and other public questions for years, and they know that no part of our population is more inter ested in a good honest dollar than they. They know that when they sell their wheat they must give a full bushel meas ure, and in payment they want a full dollar worth 100 cents. They can't measure their wheat in a short bushel, nor do they propose to receive for It a short dollar." The Republican candidate for gover nor of Ohio certainly does not overesti mate the l intelligence of the farming population of the state, and he states the case truly when he says that they have been studying this and other public ques tions for years. They have been dis cussing and comparing notes with each other in their Granges and Allianc...

14 THE ADVOCATE. MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT. From the Field and Farm. Without stopping to threab over a lot " of old Btraw we want to observe that the so-called People's party has come to stay a little while, possibly longer. A Tope ka man named Atwood, who springs up In Chicago like Cadmus' soldiers, full grown and strong, Is credited with telling the newspaper reporters that "the Farm ers' Alliance in Kansas is passing as blissfully away as an aggregation of the Lily Dales" whatever that may be. lie also has the temerity to say that the Alli ance is likened unto a big balloon, and "the demagogues are trying to keep themselves afloat by throwing out a good deal of the ballast which was used in their yawpings when the Farmers' Alli ance was first organized, but their case is hopeless." This son of the great Demluogus Is simply an idiot. lie figures without his host. In avoiding Charybdis he forgets Scylla. He does not look beyond the tip of his nose or he would see the infirmity of hi...

Devoted to the Interests of the Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union and Other Kindred Organizations. VOL. III. NO. 2. . TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2, 1891. 1.00 PER YEAR. SPECIMEN ROT. Tlte Kind of Bosh Eastern Bankers Expect the Credulous Farmer to Swallow. To the Editor of Tub Advocate. If circulating notes were issued to all the farmers who want to borrow, how much would such notes be worth? Perhaps the value of farms and their equipment and stock may be $20,000,000,000 or more, and at half their value $10,000,000,000 could be loaned. Even the $50 per capita for which the National Alliance asks would not go far. v The increased issue of $1,500,000,000 might answer for about a sixth of the farms. But with what decency can the government pro vide for a small fraction and leave the rest to suffer! Or by what practical method can it confine loans to actual owners of farms really cultivated and prevent absorption of all the money by real estate speculators and operators i...

'ADVOOSA.07III TflE SUPREME! COURT. We Charge the 8upremc Court With High Crime in the Maxwell Grant Cam. From the Colorado Workman. CONTEMPT OF AUTHORITY. NO. I. - On December 31, 18C9, Hon. J. D. Cox, then secretary of the Interior, made a de cision that the extent of the Maxwell grant as made by Mexico and quit claimed by Congress was twenty-two square leagues, eleven leagues to each of two claimants, that Is to say, the secre tory decided that the amount of land due the grant claimants was 96,000 acres In stead of 2,000,000 acres. Under this de cision homestead and pre-emption settlers acquired private and vested rights. Secretary Cox had a right to make the decision of 1860.

TO THE FARM ESS ALLIANCE. Uppermost now In the public mind is the discussion of the money question. As a solution of this, I offer the face of the country for a basis for a national money. Let us agree on $100 per capita as a fixed volume, below which it cannot go. Be It of gold, silver and paper read ing on its face "United States of America," from one to five hundred dollars, using the national fiat on paper as we do on silver and gold. The government has recognized this principle by depositing elker and gold for a basis for certificates. Why compel the people to dig up the under side of the country whilst we have such vast wealth on the upper side in easily known quantities? The answer to this question is, it would stop gam bling in unknown quantities and destroy the business of those skilled in this game. You will ask me how I would use the upper side, seeing that the gov ernment does not own it Assuming that we have agreed on our hundred dollars per capita, elect the idea that ...

5 THE REPUBLICAN LEAGUE CONVENTION. The convention of the Republican League has come and gone. It was characterized by the same spirit of misrepresentation and falsification as has characterized the Republican press in its attitude towards the Alli ance and the People's party. Space will not at this time permit a full re view of the proceedings and resolu tions. We shall only call attention to some of the most glaring mis representations. In another place we give the resolutions in fall. The good judgment of the people supple mented by the education of the past two years, render them fully compe tent to pass judgment upon the declarations of these blind leaders of the blind. The resolutions give the usual en dorsement to the national and state administrations, which, of course, include endorsement of the abuse of the pardoning power, which was so severely censured in the case of Gov ernor Glick by this same outfit. They commend the last Republican Con gress for its adherence to the ...

c SHORTER HOURS LABOR MUST RECEIVE ITS REWARD. In his report of statistics relating to the factory system of the United States, Carrol D. Wright, in charge of that department of the census work of 1880, says: It would require about one hundred and fifty millions of persons, working under the old system, to produce the goods made by three millions or so factory workers of to-day. This ia a startling statement when folly comprehended. It is but another way of saying that the invention of labor saving machinery and the sys temization of methods is now displac ing the labor of 147,000,000 people in the United States. Were the hoars of labor reduced to correspond with this increased power of production the United States alone would, if Mr. Wright's estimate is correct, afford employment to the idle of the civilized world, and thereby eliminate all the want and suffering and crime consequent upon it. But this displace ment of labor is not limited to the fac tory system. It is equally true...

WE PROVED IT, TOO. The argument of the Alliance Advocate of this city, which protest against abuse" of populist leaders, Is, "you are a liar; you are a thief : you are a conspirator ; you are a scoundrel " It charges the Capital with lying about the mort gage payments, thus tacitly admitting that our mortgage reports, If true, leav the calamity ras cals no gronnd to stand on. Capital. . Yes, we charged the Capital with lying about the mortgage reports, and we proved it, too. What has the Capital to say in relation to its re port of the mortgage foreclosures in Shawnee county last fall? Does- it still adhere to the statement that there had been but two in the pre ceding feix months I If the Capital lied about its own county, where the records were said to have been per sonally examined, we submit that we have a right to infer that it has lied about others. In fact we have proved that it lied in other instances, but when thus proven guilty of deliberate falsehood it is as silent as th...

Hall's announcement that "nothing .would tempt him to accept a nomina tion for the governorship of Missouri at the hands of the proposed third party," as evidence that Mr. Hall is a wise politician. We are not prepared to dispute this conclusion. A meeting is to be held on the Cth of September in this city for the pur pose of considering a project for ex tending the influence of the State University.

T2-XC AUVOOATia CONCERNING STATESMEN. We find in the State Journal of Au gust 24th an extract from a sermon preached at the First Congregational church of this city on the preceding day, which is bo marked a departure from the regulation church discourse, and which contains so much hard sense that we are pleased to reproduce it If the Rev. Sheldon continues to preach such doc trine as this, his church should receive the encouragement and patronage of all the toilers of our city. Mr. Sheldon said that statesmanship does not consist in beating the other fellow. That is politics. Statesmanship is fighting the devil just as much as preaching is. There is no virtue in it unless it stands for the continual improvement of the human being in society. I pay the true statesman is not a party man. The time has come in this country when parties must yield to principles, and a man has a right to belong only to the principles. I wonder that men have been enslaved so long to the crockery god of pa...

INADEQUATE EEMIMES. rrmn the Iowa Tribune. The committee of the Trades and La Ict tssambly of Chicago baa investigated the workings of the "sweating Bittern" in that city. It Is shown that thousands of men, women and children, working long hours in that city, can earn barely enough to keep soul and body together. A Repub lican organ of that city in speaking of the disclosures says: The scenes of wretchedness are the pro duct of a remorseless business competition. The values which these poor slaves create go almost directly into the coffers of great business houses. But the rich merchants do cot feel that they are to blame. Their idea is that business is business, and that charity is charity. They see no way to do except to buy as cheap as they can, sell at tha best the market will yield, and donate to the poor whatever sum they see fit out of their . profits. They decline to interfere with the laws of trade, which they consider as in exorable as the laws of physics. If children tea ...
