9 ISC5. THE ADVOCATE. KANSAS REFORM EDITORS. A Successful State Meeting at the State's Educational Center. The meeting of the Kansas Reform Press Association at Lawrence Decem ber 6 and 7 was a very successful one. The meeting began with a reception on the evening of the 6th in Journal hall.

V7 3 ' VOL. VIL, NO. 51. TOPEKA, KANSAS, DECEMBER 18, 1895. $1.00 A YEAE. CONGRESS IS SLOW. Senator Stewart Makes a Vigorous Assault on the Gold Combine. Washington, December 16. The third week of the Senate will open with that body no better equipped for the transaction of business than on the day Congress first assembled, though it is more than probable that before the week is over the caucus will have agreed and the Senate committees will have passed into the hands of tbe Ke publicans. If the suggestion of some of the younger Senators is followed, it is not improbable that this week may find the Senate testing the strength of the two parties over the subject of the reorganization of the elective officers. Thursday Mr. Stewart Introduced a resolution to direct the Finance com mittee to inquire what effect the differ ence of exchange gold standard and silver standard countries has upon the agricultural and manufacturing indus tries of the United States.

TI-223 ADVOOAT3, ft. : U - DEGENERATION OF THE NATION. BY M. SENN. It is axiomatic that the universe is governed by law. Law is truth, or is that which is, in the orderly relation of things and interaction of forces. In human affairs truth, truth telling and true or truth living, is by our very na ture, by general consent, and by the very necessity of the case, considered of the highest merit. The truthful person is by his very existence and by every act of his life a builder, a promoter of something bene ficial to society, while the liar is a de otroyer and disturber. Lying and de ception undermines and finally destroys the very structure of government, busi ness and society. There is no greater evil threatening this nation now than deception and falsehood. Deception and falsehood are always the weapons of oppression. Many people actually believe that it is impossible to be active in politics without the practice of lying and de ception. Certainly, judging by current charges and co...

The Executive Council has rejected all of the bids for f urniahiDg the new rooms in the State house, for the al leged reason that they were too close together to appear absolutely fair. This is a rery peculiar reason consid ering the fact that there was a differ ence of $530 between the lowest and highest bids. The lowest was $10,568 and the highest $11,098. A large num ber of local politicians, all redeemers, of course, were very anxious to have the contract go to the St. Xonis Art Metal Company, whose bid was $10,667. Bids will again be advertised for. Ev erybody interested Is now informed as to what others regard as a fair price for the work. It is very probable that the favorite company, which ever it may be, will get the contract nexttime.

I desire by your permission to offer a little consolation to the tax-payers who ere hard pressed to pay their taxes, and explain why they are so high and who ere responsible. I shall only take time to cite , one bill, which ia a matter of record, and can be found on the pages of the Senate Journal of 1895. Pages given in the proper place. Governor Morrill a few days ago chas tised the members of the various boards of the penal and charitable institutions of the State, for riding on passes, and then drawing from the State 8 or prob ably 10 cents per mile for the distance traveled. This comes with very poor grace at this late hour. It's all bun combe, for it's a Republican law, made by Republicans and praoticed by Re publicans, and continued, in force by Republicans. They are responsible for an uncalled for expense of $50,000 annu ally, and I would not be surprised that it a twice this amount. They could have saved this f...
