'A fSXESBaa Sub-treasury plan. How they can have formed such an erroneous opinion is a mys tery. The reform prees is the best indica tor of the will of the Alliance people, and it is almost a unit for the plan. It is well to look at what must be the inevetible re sult of thia convention. It is, to say the least, something very unusual and very ex traordinary. If the fight is to be made within the organization, then why this con vection, and why does the plutocratic press come swiftly to its aid? If, as the leaders in this convention say, 80 per cent, of the members of the Alliance oppose the sub treasury and land loan plants, why is it neoeseary to organise this resistance on the outside? There can be but one consistent Muwer. It is intended by those who are re sponsible for it to split the Alliance. Fif teen states have already pledged their sup port to those measures and elected delegates to the Supreme Council on this issue. What hopes can the delegates from this anti-sub-treasur...

Ti-ns advocate; it RAILROAD PASSES IN MAINS. From The Voice: The revelations Senator Chandler, of New Hampshire, has been making over his own name, la the Monitor, of Con cord, are among the most startling of re cent years. Senator Chandler la now senior Senator from his state, and was, daring President Arthur's administra tion, secretary of the navy. He has never been accused of over-sensitlvenesa of conscience In political affairs, and his present expose, like that made in Con necticut recently by Judge Harrison, and that of Quay, which was inspired by Chris Magee, Is due to a factional party fight. The election of Mr. Galllnger as Senator was a blow at Chandler's su premacy In New Hamshire politics which he is vigorously resenting. He declares that "the state of New Hampshire is now possessed by two railroad systems," the Boston & Maine and the Concord & Montreal. He adds: Railroad passes and railroad money dom inate the state, and the governor, council lors, Senators and...

12 TITES ADVOCATE. rOUTICAL QUESTIONS FROM THE MORAL STASWUiivi. Strange, what divisible creatures we ere! I had or "rather one portion of my salad had proposed to write upon the above subject as it stands, when lo, another chamber of my mind swung wide Its door and a bland critio appeared who insinuatingly and annoyingly asked; "Does not your subject assume a differ ence between political questions and the moral standpoint that does not in reality exist? Now such Intrusive questions are the bane of every writer who would express himself with decision. But I followed my amiable critic into his room and there listened as he took down the old time charts of human language and the newer theories of morals, and showed ma that politics, from polis, a city, meant originally the morale, equitable condi tions, or existence of just administrative powers In a city, and that morals to-day meant a similar order and justice in human society. But I could not listen long to my critic. He had state...

MISSISSIPPI SCABS MEEK?) In Jackson-Special Report of an Eye Wit ness. From the Southern Mercury. Jackson, Mlas., Sept 21. McAllister's anti sub-treasury conven tion was advertised to exhibit hre to-day, but it didn't exhibit worth a cent McAllister hasn't had any convention in Jackson, and a trusting, hopeful peo ple are In tears. McAllister shouldn't have done this, for in sack-cloth and ashes even in sable black are the friends of the movement McAllister had no right to get sick. It was hia duty to to be here and to lead his band. That convention didn't get Into the capitol building, for a Clarion-Ledger re porter looked In every nook and corner of that vast edifice, for it lie Inquired of every gentleman having knowledge of the geography of that imposing structure and he was still unable to locate the thing.

TIIEY. While traveling life's road - You have doubtless beard tell Of a powerful god. By his subjects loved well: Yet who tramplei both troth And reason to earth And scon's at the t&le . of a better day'i birth. No minister preaches A god more unyielding; A scepter in ore firm ' Is no earthly prince wielding; No heathen bows down To an linage more cold: Thar) watches no cnieftaln More cruel and bold. No star bedecked warrior, Whatever his boast, Ever led Into action 80 snighty a host No king In bis travels From mountain to main Ever led or reviewed Such a populous train. He has gilded the fool And has wrought him a crown; lie has mocked the philosopher, Dabbing him clown: He has given the spoiler A nana clasp and smile And has stricken his victim And spurned him the while.

The entire management of the loan is con fided to the state school land board, con sisting of the governor, secretary of state, ' and state treasurer, and is without any cost to the state other than that Involved in the aalaries paid to the members of the board for the entire official duties, amounting in all to $3,800 per annum. The applicant pays for the examination of the title to his land and its appraise ment by the attorney of the board for the county in which the land is situated. The machinery is pe rfect and comparatively inexpensive, and the security the best In the world. The loans for the whole state are made by the state board at the capital, and the distribution of funds through out the state is fairly made. Thia sys tem has been a blessing to Oregon farm ers, and it may be a blessing to the farm...

;WHT THE CHANGE? The one great question of supreme importance in the present discussion between parties is the currency ques tion. From the very first the Alii ance, and, after its organization, the People's party,' have urged the con traction policy of the past twenty-nve i years as one of the chief grievances of which we had to complain. Until very recently the fact that the policy of contraction has been steadily pur sued, has not only not been denied, but every Republican journal has en deavored to jastify it as a necessary step toward the resumption of specie payment, and the maintenance of our entire currency t par with gold. Theie has been no attempt to ques tion the fact of contraction until very recently. When we have contrasted the prosperity of the years just suc ceeding the close of the war with the depression, the diminished . values and the stagnation of business of the present time, and have pointed to the large amount of currency in circula tion just after the war as...

0 'run jiiraairiSi A FEW QUESTIONS TO J K, HUDSON. A perusal of your speech deliv ered at Erie, Kansas, on September 19th, 1873, a portion of which I take pleasure in reproducing in another place, suggests a few inquiries to which I would respectfully request you to reply in detail You acted very promptly in attempting to re spond to my open letter to Hon. H. B. Kelly a letter to which I solicit ed his personal attention and not yours. Will you be equally prompt in responding to this which is direct ed personally to yourself! My ques tions are as follows: First If, m 1873, it was necessary for the farmers to unite and endeav or, through the ballot box, to effect needed reforms, is it not equally nec essary now? If not, why not? Second If legislatures, the press, Congress and courts of justice were subsidized then, and if it was neces sary for farmers to "send men to leg islate who should be able to with stand the direct and indirect bribes of rings and monopolies" in order to preven...

A RETROSPECT. A Part of a Speech of J. K. Hudson at Irie, Kansas, September 19, 1873. Mb. President: No duty is more sacredly a part of the citizen's daily life In a republic 'than the study of politics. It has been recommended that we hold, by means of our organizations, a check upon politicians, compelling them to select pure and able men to fill the offices of our state. As Jim Lane used to say, "Great God" moral suasion upon the politicians of Kaneas! Imagination may do much for us, but It fails to picture a scene so comic, in the history of bush whacking, open bribery, investigatory system of politics, so many years the cry ing shame of our young state. Mr. President, through the ballot box must come the changes that are to place farmers In a position to successfully carry out reforms heretofore mentioned. The selection of men to do the work can be made by none so well as by those most interested. If the subsidizing of Legislatures, of the press, of Congress and courts of jus t...

Sometimes such errors are harmless. We habitually ay of a deed to our land Mlt la our title." "What la that?" asks some one In regard to a paper. "It's the title to my home," Is replied. Of course we all know this la wrong, strictly speaking. It la evi dence of title, and is so called in law. The title is a very different thing from the writing on the paper. So habitually we say of a bill or coin, ult U momey," and many believe the stamped coin is money, and the law has made the bill to represent some metal of gold or silver, supposed to be deposited somewhere. One class have a theory that money has intrinsic value. somewhere, either in the metal circulated or In that placed to re deem the paper. Another class says the money is "th...
