VOL. VIIL, NO. 2. TOPEKA, KANSAS, JANUARY 8, 1896. $1.00 A YEAR THE SENATE REPUBLICAN. The Reorganization Effected Makes Kepnb llcans Responsible for Legislation. For some time the question of re organizing the committees of the United State Senate has occupied pub lic attention. December 30 the reor ganization scheme outlined by the Republicans was adopted. It gives that party control of legislation in that body, and also fixes upon it the respon sibility for action or non action. The Senate is composed at present of forty two Republicans, thirty-nine Demo crats and six Populists. The vote on reorganization was: Yeas, 30; nays, 28. The Populists declined to vote. Their reasons for adopting this course are best stated by Senator Allen, of Ne braska, in his remarks to the Senate after the vote was taken. He said: "Mr. President, it is due to the Pop ulist party, represented in this cham ber, that a very brief statement as to their position be made to the Senate. "During the Fifty-thi...

In Amana the observer of sociolog ical experiments will find a commun istic colony which has had an untroubled, continuous existence of half a century, and which does not seem to contain as yet the germs of the discord which precedes decay. The Amana colony or colonies, rather, for there are seven villages in all is about twenty-five miles from Cedar Rapids. The society owns about 40,000 acres of rich bottom land along the Iowa river, and its picturesque vil lages crown the low slopes at two or three miles distance from each other. These groups of houses have a plctur esqueness peculiarly their own, be cause they are of wood ajd unpainted. The Amana people claim to have ex perimented in this matter, and have fennd that it is cheaper to re-side a house occasion...

0 THE ADVOCATE. OUR DEBTS. It would be well for the future of our nnvtt-mr if it tiAia nsianittla tnr aVAPV American citizen to seriously insider and thoroughly comprehend the magni tude and the full significance of our pub lic and private debt as presented in the reports of the census of 1890. From a summary recently issued, the following facts are gathered: The total public and private debt was ascertained to be $20,227,170,546. The interest upon this debt is $1,166,101,303, constituting an annual obligat'on of almost one-half the amount of the na tional debt at the close of the war. This, however, is far short of the total annual demand upon the resources of the peo ple. The annual revenues of the na tional, State, county and municipal governments derived from taxation, ore stated at $1,040,473,013. To this may also be legitimately added the premiums paid to insurance companies to insure against loss of property by fire, tornado, and other causes. This amounts to $160,927,209. Su...

1033. TH3 ADVOOATS. 1 SILVERITES AND FOPULISTS. A New Basis of Union Proposed Which Should le Thoroughly Weighed. Editor Advocate: A Dew basis of union between silverites and Popu lists hsa been suggested by Ignatius Donnelly, of Minnesota. Briefly stated, the proposition is as follows: The two organizations are to unit e on candidates and not on platforms. The leaders of the 6ilver movement and the National committee of the People's party are each to call their respective conven tions at the same time and in the same city. Each convention is to frame its own platform without regard to the views of the other. When the plat forms aie adopted, then a conference committee composed of delegate from both conventions is to be appointed to decide upon the candidates for Presi dent and Vice President. When they agree upon their candidates, then these candidates are nominated by both con ventions separately and at the same time. At the first glance this proposed method of union seems to be w...
