Devoted to the Interests of the Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union and Other Kindred Organizations. VOL. III. ' NO. 4. TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1891. $1.00 PER YEAR. THE SUB-TREASURY PLAN. To the Editor of Th Advocatk. I have read with very much interest In your Issue of September 9 the letter from Mr. Jaa. R. McKeever, commenting upon the epeech delivered at Huber's grove by the Hon. J. P. True, and your editorial comments thereon. It would geem that the point in issue is the state ment made by Mr. True that "if the sub treasury plan should become a law the re sult would be to raise the price of all farm products, and it would consequently cost the laborer more to live; the laborers, foreseeing the result, would equip them selves against It, and If the People's party should , make It one of its leading Issues It would lose the co-operation and support of the laborer and the support of all labor organizations." In the course of his comments Mr. McKeever says: "Th...

THE JUDVOOiTia THJS VALUE OF WOMAN'S AID IN ALL REFORM MOVEMENTS. To the Editor of Th e Advocath. In looking at this subject In a broad z&d comprehensive manner all must ad mit It to be one ot great magnitude and weighty responsibility. And ahall we, 'my sisters, come up to the full measure of the responsibility tnathia reform move ment in which we are expected to en gage? Within the past few years woman has figured largely in nearly all reforms of which we have any account; and why not? Woman, 'tis true, Is by nature the feebler sex, yet spiritually and Intel lectually she la superior to man. Then, when called upon to look at this subject In the light of a reform, we are not surprised to find the aid of woman Eoughtfor In connection with reform work. In nearly every reform with which woman has been connected the work has been carried on to completion 'with, the characteristic push, energy and persistence that have everywhere marked their efforts. This we see attested in the tem...

TXXXS X VOO AT23. 3 INDUSTRIAL SLAVERY. To the Editor of Thk advocate: The settlement of the industrial and economic question and ita relation to mankind upon a basis of strict justice in other and more familiar words the equitable adjustment of the relations be tween labor and capital, has long engaged the thoughtful consideration of states men, (men who do not hunt offices nor occupy them), philosophers and students of political economy. For years poets and enthusiasts have dreamed of a time when poverty Bhould be no more. Re formers have agitated, have promulgated theories and established systems; and philanthropists have devoted their lives and given millions of dollars all in vain attempt to bring about a state of society in which selfishness and greed could have no place, and peace and plenty reign supreme throughout the universe. That the hopes and dreams, the studies and theories of those noble minded and well meaning individuals have not been productive of better practical ...

If the People's party had listened to the proposition Judge Johnson sent to our convention, how would it have been! There will be a People's party rally in Topeka on October 1, at which Senator Peffer and Congressman Simpson will be the speakers. Far ther announcement will be made later. Let the people note the date and make preparation for a grand demonstration. PROTECTION AND WEALTH. The Democratic id Is that he people be made rich and the government be kept poor.

AN OPEN LETTER TO , SENATOR H. B. KLLY. u Office of The Advocate, TorEKA, Ean., Sept., 10, 1891. ' My Dear Sir: In the State Jour nal of September 4th, 1891, is a pur ported interview with you from which I quote the following paragraph: Now about the Alliance. There are la Its ranks to-day a great many heretofore goodlte publlcans, who, on account of one grievance and another have allied themselves with that party. These old time Republicans should be reasoned with and shown that they want nothing but what the Republican party, If they will give It the opportunity ana their support, Is willing to do, and can do for them, These men can be reasoned with and their good Judgment will show them where they stand, and they can be brought back to the Republican party. This is a perfectly frank statement I shall take it for granted that you are correctly, reported, and that you are honest in your statements. Now, sir, I am one of those "old time Republicans," having cast my first ballot for ...

toot ADVDOAm purchased, on account of its scarcity and on account of the contraction of our entire circulating medium and its absolute control by the very class of men in whose favor all this legis lation had been enacted, But they did not stop here. Not satisfied with securing the payment of the bonds in coin, they next procured the de monetization of silver, bearing gold alone as the money in which they could be paid. I do not wish to omit in this pre sentation the act for the destruction of the treasury notes, and the vast contraction of the circulating medium. On the 4th of December, 18C5, Hugh McCullough, secretary of the treas ury, in his report to Congress said: The first thing to be done is to establish the policy of contraction. The legal tender acts were war measures, passed In a great emer gency; that they should only be regarded as temporary; that thev ought not to remain in force for a day longer than would be necessary to prepare for a return to a GOLD STANDARD, and th...

Why Dr. Price's Baking Powder is Superior to all others No great efforts are made by other manufacturers to procure and use pure materials. It is true that one other company has the facilities, but its greed and cupidity induced it in an evil hour to use ammonia, in order to swell its profits. Hence the Price Baking Powder Company stands alone in its fight for a pure baking powder. No other article of human food receives greater care in its production, or has attained higher perfection. Dr. Price's Cream is surely a perfect baking powder. Free from every taint of impurity. No other article used in the kitchen has so many steadfast friends among the house wives of Acosrica. . ; , . . , : i We Charge the Supreme Court With Hlkn Crime in the Maxwell Grant Case.

. THB DOWNFALL OF HALLISIS. ' From the Missouri World. ' ' The Missouri Alliance has been labor Ing under the disadvantage of having a politician for state president 'About eight years ago, U. S. Hall, an attorney, after practicing law awhile In Moberly, Ma, and leading a rather reckless Ufa in Kansas City, returned to his father's farm in Randolph county, Mo., where he was lost sight of by the public until some two years ago he was elected state lecturer of the Alliance. He served in this ca pacity for a year, ignoring in a measure the principal demands of the Alliance, and devoting the principal part of his lectures to the tariff, taking the Demo cratic side of that issue. A year ago he was chosen state president Ilia con duct as president proved so plainly that he was endeavoring to make the Alliance a tall to the Democratic kite that strong protests began to come from the mem bers throughout the state. These protests finally led to the forma tion of two elements in the Alliance ...

1 1 THE CINCINNATI PLATFORM. 1. In view of the great social, industrial and economical revolution now dawning upon the civilized world, and the new and litis? issues confronting the American peo ple, we believe that the time haa now ar rived for the crystallization of political reform forces of our country and the forma tion of what should be known as the Peo ple's party of the United States of America. 2. That we most heartily endorse the de mands of the platforms as adopted at St. Louis, Mo., in 1889; Ocala, Fla., in 1890, and Omaha, Neb., in 1891, and industrial orga nizations there represented, summarized as follows: A The right to make and issue money is a sovereign power to be maintained by the people for the common benefit; henoe we demand the abolition of national banks as banks of issue, and, as a substitute for na tional bank notes, we demand that legal tender treasury notes be issued in sufficient volume to transact the business of the coun try on a cash basis, without da...

Sheldon at the First Congregs tionalist ohuroh, Topeka, Kan., August 23, 1891, and Whereas, The Topeka Capital, a willing tool of plutocracy and utterly devoid of honesty and truthfulness as regards the great social and economic questions of the hour, has severely criticised the worthy divine, therefore be it Resolved, That we the members of Sun flower Alliance No. 1272, of Kinsley, Ed wards county, Kan., denounce the Capital's action as unwarranted, malicious and dis honorable.

CONCONINU FBEIGIIT KATES. To the Editor of Thh Advocate. ' ' As there is no better way to enable the people of Kansas to see the enormous ntcs charged on freight than by compar Irg the r&tes In Kansas with the rates In osher states, I wish to submit the follow jag table of comparison, which was pub lished In the Nonconformist last week. The enemies of our maximum rate bill hct winter claimed that it was unfair to compare the rates In Kansas with the rates In Iowa, for the reason that Kansas had a much greater mileage than Iowa. In answer to that I show by the table below that Illinois, with a much greater mileage than Kansas, has rates nearly as low as Iowa. It will be said that the tonnage on the Illinois roads is much larger. This, is true of the trunk lines, but not of the roads that depend on the local traffic. And as all roads are governed by the &mo law or rates, acordlng to their clasa, this argument falls to the ground. I show only six classes, as they will esti mate...

THE STJB-TBEASUSY PLAN. To the Editor of Thk Advocatk. I have carefully followed the discus sions going on In the Kansas Farmer between Colonel Harris and others in relation to the sub-treasury plan, and I would like a hand in the discussion. Brothers Harris and Shinn seemed to misconstrue the true purposes for ad vancing sub-treasury and land loan plans namely, to furnish a more extended, di versified and generally distributed basis for an increase in our currency. It la now generally conceded that we need an Increase in our circulating medium of exchange; the only really existing differ ence of . opinion is as to the basis to be used, and the mode of emitting it Now, the government can't give money away, the bonds are not all due yet, and we don't want extravagant appropriations. Buying railroads wo...

It presents a picture of one side of life la the great Kogllsh metropolis that has a parallel In every large city of our own country. "The worker'! cry" U the same the world over. What Is the cause of It all? Editor. Itiaan Impudent question to ask, no doubt In some minda it pre-suppoaas a difficulty. In our own minds, gentle reader, when the world uses us, as we consider, correctly, we do not always understand how it is that others fail to get comfortably "fixed." "It must be their own fault," of course. But when the world uses v awry ah! what then? "Things" are not what they ought to be. "Things" go wrong. So we look at them from a shifty standpoint, reserving to ourselves every consideration that tells in our favor and denying to others the most elementary rights of charity and liberty. A man passes us by in the street, ragged, tattered and torn. "Ah, poor fellow," we say, "...
