McLallin, Editor Advocate, Topeka, Kan. Dear Sir: Absence from home de layed reply to your published letter, ad dressed to myself, In which you assign financial legislation of the Republican party as the chief reason leading your self and many other Republicans to abandon that party, the specific acta you name and to which you object being first, the "exception clause in the legal tender act," and secondly, "the credit strengthening act." As the legal tender act was passed In 1802, and was in effect repealed in 1879 by the resumption of specie payments, and aa the "credit strengtenlng act" of 18G9 served Its pur pose for good or ill twenty years ago, you having voted end...

2 TUB AJD VOOATE, rency, first upon faith In the promise of ultimate payment, and secondly because of the legal tender function given them, and for the further reason that the note would purchase a bond, payable at a stated time, principal and Interest, In money. The soldier who received the note had the promise of government that it should be paid in coin; the per son who held the bond having euch promise and no more, the government having made no distinction between the note holder and the bondholder, the per son holding either until government could pay, received money for his paper. There can then be no valid objection raised to the "exception" clause in the legal tender act, save upon the ground that the notes were not Issued as promises to pay money, but were issued as "real money," with but the flat of government declaring the paper of itself, money. This character was never contemplated and never given in the issuance of the legal tender currency. You refer to the credit str...

TZ-H23 iU3VCC-ft.T2ZL 3 greatest obstacles that ever threatened a nation's life and credit, you now say you quit the party because of the "exception In the legal tender act." Then you quit the party because the government, while compelled through necessity to prose cute a war for national life and human freedom upon credit, exercised its gov ernmental prerogative in collecting upon goods imported, the money necessary to pay its matured obligations, in order that it might maintain that credit upon which, next to its splendid soldiery, it relied for success. You quit the party, you say, because of the "credit strengthening act" Then you quit the party entrusted by the people with the control of govern ment, the prosecution of the war and the maintenance of the public credit, be cause that party in the face of threatened repudiation declared that the obligations of the government, every note and every bond, should be paid; because the party which had achieved such magnificent re sults ...

TTXE3 AIDVOOilTZL 5 & Co, of Kansas City, Missouri, being duly sworn, deposes and says, that some time in the month of June, 1882, Capt. J. B. John son, of Topeka, and Mr. L. Blaokman, of the same place, called at my office in Kan sas City, the latter introducing Capt. John son to me. At that time and place Capt Johnson said he was a candidate for the Republican nomination for governor of the state of Kansas, that he had great hopes of defeat ing St. John if he could raise the necessary funds to apply where it would do the most good. He said he was opposed to prohibition and promised, if successful in the race, to do all he could to wipe out the iniquitous law, that he was in favor of a constitutional convention by which prohibition could be ignored and proper license laws enacted thereunder. He sud it would be necessary for him to advocate prohibition in order to defeat St. John in the nomination, but once elected he would do all in his power in the interests of the liquor traf...

TTXZC ADVOOATZl XTLALLIH-KELLY. DISCUSSION OF POLITICAL ISSUES. To lion. II. D. Kelly : I have given your reply to my open letter to you a very careful examination, and you will pardon me for the opinion which I am compelled to express, that instead of meetlng'the issues which I pre sented you enter largely into the discus sion of the nature and character of money, while you overlook entirely the real character of my objections' to the financial policy of the government dur ing the past thirty years. I have no ob jection to the discussion of the questions you present, though I would have pre ferred to settle the other questions first. The question, what is money, has noth ing whatever to do with the subjects of my former letter, as I shall show when I reach that part of my subject. One word relative to the reflection con cerning the late period of my forsaking the Republican party for the causes specified. I wish to assure you that I, with multitudes of other men in this country, fa...

Tl-Iia ADVOOAT21 7 and the great financial crises which have carried ruin and desolation in their path, have always resulted from every attempt to establish or maintain a metallo basis. Now a few words upon the abstract subject of money. What is money? You make many sssertlons upon this subject, but I submit that you offer no proof of a single proposition. Judge Tiffany in his "Constitutional Law" says: There U legally no such thing as gold or silver money, or paper money. Money Is the sovereign authority Impressed on that which Is capable of taking and retaining the Impression. That upon which the stamp is placed is called coin; the coin may he metal, parchment or paper. Tliervlut is in the stamp, and not in the metal or material. Henry Cernuchi, a French writer upon political economy of wide celebrity and great repute, and the French representa tive in the international monetary con gress of 1878 says: Money is a value created by law. Its basis Is legal and not material. It Is per...

0 THUS .ADVOCATE do, and if you expect to win them back to the Republican party by attempting to justify thla robbery, rather than by proposing to right the wrongs that they have suffered, you will be disappointed. All that you have to say about the world wide causes that are operating to the disadvantage of agriculture may be answered in a single, sentence. I agree with you that they are the same almost everywhere; and they must be found In the almost world wide effort to maintain a metalic basis of money. Not only agri culture but "every industry and every occupation In life save that alone of the money changer, suffers alike from this cause. It is world wide and the legls latlon of the world has made it so. It is so because the money power of the world controls the world's legislation. Permit me to ask you what would be the per capita circulation of the . world if its money were limited to gold and silver? It is sufficient answer to your state ment that silver was only nominally ...

THUS ADVOCATE pets, that he met these gentlemen at Kan sas City about the first of June, 1883. The fact that Mr. Johnson was in Kansas City with Mr. Blaokman at the time mentioned is pretty well established by the following telegram received by me to-day: TELEGRAM FBOM . M'COY. A CO. Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 30, 1884. To B. W. Ludington, Laurence, Kansas: The names of J. B. Johnson and L. Blackman, Topeka, Kansas, appear to day on the register of this hotel, under date June second, eighteen hundred and eighty two. Eldsidgb, McCoy & Co., Proprietors Metropolitan Hotel. Perhaps Mr. Johnson will claim that the hotel register lies, or that some malicious liquor dealer forged his name there in order to make things look suspicious. Mr. Johnson quoted Maj. T. J. Anderson, as a party who was present at the Gordon House meeting, to corroborate his own statement that I had urged his candidacy in the interest of the liquor dealers, which he had refused. The fact is Mr. Anderson was not prese...

THE JDVOOATEX 11 THS DANGERS OF OPPRESSION. To the Editor of Tub Advocatk. The movement that is agitating the minds of the masses at the present time la one that should interest every Ameri can citizen. Their Interests as a people, and their pride aa a nation, are embodied in the principles of the reforms that are now being advocated. Through the chi canery of trusted leaders we have drifted Into a condition that Is becoming un bearable. Human nature naturally revolts against oppression, and an Inevitable result l'ollows. The dangers to which Lincoln pointed us are here, resting relentlessly on our shoulders. He, with a far seeing eye, saw the cause, and knew what the effect would be on this nation of people. A few have grasped (as he said they would) and are holding the wealth of this coun try. If he would come upon the earth to-day he would not only denounce, but would release himself from a party that has become so corrupt. With his strict sense of justice he could not do otherwi...

0 L. L. POLK. A Review by One Who Knows Him. To the Editor of Th Advocate. . Col.L. L. Polk, like all other great men who have positive convictions and do not fear to express them, has strong friends and bitter enemies. From the earliest historic time until now there cannot be named one single patriot in whose heart the love of country and the welfare of the people was stronger than his desire for place or power who has not been slandered, traduced and villlfied. I have known Colonel Folk for years, and while we have frequently differed, I have never known a single position taken by the Colonel that was not, from his standpoint, an honest and sincere one. To have a proper understanding of the bitter fight waged against him in North Carolina, it will be necessary to briefly re view the past. Colonel Polk was a whig, and did what he could to prevent North Carolina from seceding. As a citizen of his native state he advised against it, and with all the ardor of youth spoke against seces...
