W , ; 13 FT "TIIZ ADVOCATE" OH THE LAW RENCE "JOUSNAl" THAT IS TBYING TO DECEIVE ITS RSADEEST The Alliance Adtocatx, of Topeka, empha sizes its declaration that the statement of farm mortgage Indebtedness of Kansas represents only inch farms as are actually the homes of the fanners who owe the money, and that those farmers are living on the lands. Th Advo cate Is either itself laboring under a gross mis representation of facts, or It Is trying to deceive its readers. Three-fourths of the farms In far western Kansas upon which are mortgages have been deserted, and a large proportion of the farm mortgage Indebtedness of the remainder of the state was placed upon the farm lands by speculators. It Is safe to say that not twenty five per ent. f the farm mortgage Indebtedness oflKansas rests upon the shoulders of actual farmers who are residing upon their farms and trying to make a living from them. Lawrence Journal, September 17. The Advocate now repeats with re newed emphasis the averme...

WISE THE GOVERNMENT BONDS PAY ABL3 IN LEGAL TENDER MONEY? The Capital in its article in the issue of September 15, quotes the following paragraph from The Advocate, the truthfulness of which it calls in ques tion. . Bat we Imagine we bear the objection that the value of the bonds Is in the promise to pay them In gold. Was this the case when the bonds were Issued? Every one knows It was not. When the governmet bonds were Issued, they were by the act which authorized them, made payable In lawful money of the United States; and lawful money of the United States at that time con listed of gold, silver and treasury notes. Up to 18C9 these bonds werelpayable in greenbacks, so that both the bonds and the money in which they might be paid rested solely upon the credit of the government, and yet they were never con sidered ques'lonable security. It required the so-called "Credit Strengthening Act"ofl8C9to make these .bonds payable In coin, and this fol lowed by the demonetization of silver, ...

fm-r"""" A Will ;" j"' A' 'TI THE SUPREME COURT. We Charge the 8upreme Court With High Crime in the Maxwell Grant Case. From the Colorado Workman. iv. ' The constitution declares (Art. IV S. 1) that "the Congress shall have the power to dispose of and make all needful rules and regulations respecting the territory, or other property belonging to the United States." At the time that Congress passed upon the grant to Beaubien and Miranda whatever interest there was in the land claimed which was not legally or equitably their property was the property of the United States; and Congress having the power to dispose of that property, and having, as we understand it, oonfirmed this grant, and thereby made such disposition of it, it is not easily to be perceived how the courts ofthe United States can Bet aside this action of Congress. Maxwell Gnnt Case, 121 U.S. 382. There is no such "action of Congress" as the supreme court here speaks of to set aside. Congress requires its act of June 21,...

ADVOCATOR THAT FAMOUS IIQUOK PLANK. Prohibitionists in a Brown Study Over It Govcrnnient Conduct of the Lienor Busi ness Makes Quite a Stir in the Prohibition Banks. From the New Nation. No proposition has been projected upon the political canvas which has so tried the metal of the prohibitionist party for years as the liquor planka of the Ohio and the Massachusetts People's party. The explanation of this stir among the prohibitionists is the intrinsic good gov ernment Involved in the public conduct of liquor business. The saloon would die with the aboli tion of the element of profit Such an abolition Is proposed by the People's party. The public has now an opportunity to pass judgment upon an intelligent method of solving the liquor problem. This many prohibitionists see. H. Clay Bascom, the noted prohibitionist leader of Troy, New York, has been in a brown study over this matter for some time. The following passage in a private letter shows how his mind is tending: I am too ignora...

A PAIR QUESTION. 7sin the Larned Eagle-Optic Did the Republicans of Larned refuse the uae of tLe United States flag for the Alliance on last Saturday? We are creditably informed that an old union soldier made 'application o P. C. Haglies, quartermaster of the 0. A. I?, post for the use of the United States flag for the Alliance rally on last Saturday, aad waa peremptorily refused. We think the flag should wave over all pa triots in this land of the free and home of the brave, and refusal, under the above circumstances, smatters a little too much of the spirit of intolerance. If the Republican party in Pawnee county can't thrive without resorting to such narrow ness, the sooner it gasps its last the better. A GROWING TSAR. From the Kansas Commoner. Last fall one of the townships in Sedg wick county polled only three Republican votes. Now there is a Republican club in that township with eighty-eight members, a laige per cent, of whom are old soldiers. This is one of the best growing y...

TWO PICTUBES-HISTOllIC ILLUSTRATIONS OF NATIONAL FINANCE. There is a Money That Pares and Civilizes ; and, There is a Honey That Enslaves and Destroys. To the Editor of Thk Advocate. In the year 1171 coin failed to meet the national requirements of the govern ment of Venice. The republic cut loose from coin and adopted a book credit money, with no actual or pretended coin redemption. Those book credits were the lawful money of Venice for more than six hundred years. During that time Venice became and remained the commercial center of the world and the clearing house of Europe. In 1797 coin failed In England. That proud financial center paid out all her gold, and her last silver slxpense in obedience to the god of coin redemption, and the proud em pire of Great Britain was about to be come a province of France. England then, as Venice had done, cut loose from coin and adopted paper as the current money of the realm for the space of twenty. live years.. The results, as related by Sir ...

"overproduction was the cause of the low price of agricultural produce," and this at a time when the government was encourag ing immigration because there were too many mouth3 to feed. And he told the manufacturers of Manchester and Birming ham, who waited upon him with respect to their distresses, that they "made too many goods; they had overstocked the markets of the world." The consumption of cotton at the time being about one-eighth of what it is now, and the make of iron and of Bir mingham goods being not far from the same proportion. Government, however, became alarmed, and extended the time for returning to specie payments to the year 1819, which caused a revival of confidence, indicating, as it was supposed to do, the in tention of the government to pursue a lenient policy in regard to the bank; con sequently new life was given to the people, but only for a time, for the bank, in pre paring for resumption in 1819, soon obliter ated all signs of amendment, and the de pression...

FOOD ADULTERATION. It is safe to say that not one per son in 10,000 has any adequate con ception of the f rands and impositions and even the dangers to health and life to which the people of this conn try are constantly subject in conse quence of the adulteration of almost, if not quite every article of food pur chased in the public markets. The evil has assumed such proportions .as to be absolutely alarming because of its influence upon the health and longevity of the people. It is an evil that demands, and should re ceive early legislative attention. We cannot in one brief article con vey an adequate conception of the magnitude of this fraud, but we can present such facts as will lead the people to reflect upon the subject, and indicate the necessity of its agi tation until it shall receive the atten tion, by our state and national legis latures, that its importance demands. This is a question into which politics does not enter. It is one which in timately concerns the welfare of ...

I wish to present a few facta to the readers of the Nonconformist relating to railroads. I said facts, and I mean facta, not opinions. People in this feverish age have not the time to read every man's opinion on the many Important questions of the day, but they do have the time to read statistical facts when presented in a concise manner. What my opinion relating to railroads may be is a matter of no Importance, whatever to the general public; but the actual facts relating to the transportation question as to reasonable ratts, is a matter of vast importance to the people generally. In this article I wish to present to the general public some facts that however startling are official.

AD VOOAT2& The Secret of Fine Pastry. Is wholly in using Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder. The only pure Cream Tarter Powder sold on the market. Other brands contain either ammonia, alum or some other adulterant. Ammonia or alum powders dry out, make the dough too porous, leaving a bitter taste, etc. No agency has assisted so much toward perfection in cookery as Price's Cream Baking Powder. Its ingredients are simple and so blended as to exist in exact chemical pro portions, so after use there is never any excess of either left in the food. Hence there can be no impurities whatever left in the finished food. No bitter taste, no taint of ammonia, but food raised with Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder partakes of the natural sweet flavor of the flour and keeps moist and fresh for daya, This powder possesses qualities peculiar to it alone. No other makes such delicious pastry. No other contains the white of eggs. T33 TAILOES OF TOOLEY STREET MEET AND RESOLVE. ( Continued from Urst pag...
