1806. THE ADVOCATE. 5 WHY REMAIN A REPUBLICAN? Last week we asked if any Republi can could give a good reason why he should longer remain a Republican The Capital of January 11, without touching a single question involving any of the real issues of the times, un dertakes to answer the question. The first reason it assigns is that the party was successful in the last elec tions. It says: One of tbe reasons that might be given la because the Republican party represent the people and the proof of the fact that It does represent the people is to be found in the elec tion returns for the last two general elections. Probably a majority of all the people of the country to-day are Republicans. In the State elections of last November the total majority of the Republican tickets amounted to about half a million. u We are the people." Now if that is a reason, then when the Democratic party swept the coun try in 1892, that should have been a sufficient reason for every American citizen to becom...

6 THE ADVOCATE. January 15, Written for the Advocate. IT IS TI3IE. In this ago, when gold Is king, Sitting on a brazen throne ; When 'tis thought the proper thing Rating men by what they own ; When the brute is more and more And the spirit, less and leas ; When the world la lorded o'er By corruption and e iceas ; It is time that men of worth Boldly step into the van With this message to the earth : ,Down with Mammon, up with Man. We have seen the Idler feast, While the toiler lacked for bread; We have seen the king and priest Hob the living and the dead; We have seen the thief arrayed In the purple robes of atate, While the honest man was made To beg succor at his gate. It has ever been the same, .Since our human world began. Let us stop the sickening game. Down with Mammon, up with Man. Earth Is far too wise and old For a lordllng, or a slave ; For to heed a ring of gold On the forehead of a knave ; Far too old for war and hate ; Old enough for brotherhood; Wise enough to found a a...

1896. THE ADVOCATE. 7 WANTED-100 MORE JOBS. Not Enough Places to Mollify rte-t'onnter Republicans. Editor Advocate: Governor Morrill Bays be cannot see any reason why the Republican party should not give him a renomination. "A renomination for a second term has been the custom of the party in Kansas, and I see no cause for departing from it now. In my opinion, the administration and myself are enti led to Republican indorsement." There is no doubt but that the senti ments expresced by the Governor in the interview above quoted will meet with a hearty response from the rank and file of his party throughout the State. In 1S94 he was selected as the standard bearer of his party for the reason that, like Saul, the anointed king, he stood head and shoulders above the other re deemers who were aspirants for the posi tion. During the campaign he was lauded to the skies as the one man whose very name was a guarantee that, if elected, we would have a clean business administration, our credit...

180C. THE ADVOCATE, 11 CALENDAR CURIOSITIES. Throughout Seven Years There Will Be No February 29 Alter 1896. The introduction of an additional day into the calendar once in four years is necessary to prevent the average year from being too short. At the same time it makes the average year a little too long. This additional length is so slight that it accumulates very slowly. Nevertheless it does accumulate, and by the end of the century it amounts to nearly a day. For that reason once in a hundred years the additional day which marks a year as leap year is omitted, and the average length of a year is reduced. The English law determined in 1751 on reforms in this calendar, and from those we draw and use. The original determination of the calendar was made by the Tope, and afterward it was adopted by all the countries ex cept Russia and the East. From Jan uary 12, 1752, the civil.'year was made to begin on that date, and not on March 1, aa many had it. In the same year eleven days wer...

12 THE ADVOCATE January 15, The New York Preacher Takes a Gloomy View of Things. Dr. Parkhurst preached yesterday at the Madison Square Presbyterian church, and incidentally touched on the prospects for the coming year. "There is not," he said, "the usual New Year's exhilaration in the air. We are respiring everywhere an atmos phere of distrust. There is among all classes of people a sense of instability, Nobody knows what is coming. There is hardly an aspect of life that is not marked by some trace of doubt and nnsettlement. The times are hard; there is a cloud over the prospects of the most prosperous classes, and a feel ing that the times will grow worse. All of us are aggravated by the echoes of war projected a few weeks ago, and whose reverberations have not died away yet. "To this is added the coming quad rennial national election, and as wind-up and consummation or our woes Congress and the State Legisla ture are in session, and however true it is at all times that we cannot ...

THE ADVOCATE. January 22, BUTLER OPPOSED TO BONDS. The North Carolina Senator Fights Hard to Stop Bond Issues. Senator Butler, who enjoys the dis tinction of being the youngest man in the United States Senate, is making a record for himself and the Populist party which he represents. On Janu ary 3 he introduced the following bill, which is decidedly and squarely to the point: Be it enacted. That the issuance of interest-bearing bonds of the United States for any purpose whatever with out further authority of Congress is hereby prohibited. . Senator Butler asked Immediate con sideration of the bill. Senators Hill and Sherman thought the bill ought to go to the Finance committee and be fully discussed, to which the Senator leplled as follows: Mr. Butler: "I have no objections to the request made by the Senator from New York except to say that this is a matter which needs no discussion because it is distinctly understood now. Every Senator knows now as well as he will know a year from ...

1806. THE ADVOCATE. 3 HOW IT IS ENFOECED. Probate Judges Eeport the Result of Pro hibition Laws. The New York Voice, the national Prohibition organ, has sent a list of questions to the Probate Judge of each county, and In the last issue summar izes the replies received. But fifty-six of the 105 Probate Judges replied, hence the figures are of questionable value as to the condition of the State generally. The answers are supposed to be a statement of fact and not the opinion of Judges. The first question asked the Judgei is, 11 To what extent is the State law prohibiting the sale of intoxicating beverages in saloons enforced in your county?" Note that the question is how much is sold " in saloons." Brown Chautauqua, Coffey, Finney, Green wood, Hodgeman, Johnson, Lyon Miami, Eush, Russell, Scott and Thomas answer that it is "enforced. In Atchison, Barber, Bourbon, Ford and Labette it is "enforced except in city." Allen, Cheyenne, Clark, Doug las, Elk, Harvey, Kingman, Kiowa, McPherson...

THIS ADVOCATE. CARLISLE'S CONFESSION. It has often been said that there was no law requiring a gold reserve of $100,000,000. or any other amount, to be kept in the national treasury. Pop ulists have agitated this point so much that their opponents have really be come angry at times. Finally Senator Allen succeeded in getting a re3olu tlon passed by the Senate, which forced Secretary Carlisle to confess that in maintaining a gold reserve he has been worshipping a gold god set up by one of his predecessors in office The following communication from Secretary Carlisle was laid before the Senate on January 13. In it he quotes the Allen resolution and replies to it Treasury Department, Wash ington, D.

Jakuakt 22, DEMO.-REP. CAUCUS. THE ADVOCATE. Sherman: The two living and un damental principles free trade and protection have kept our two parties alternately in power for the last twenty years. You gentlemen of the South have enjoyed the honors and emolu ments of office on account of your de votion to free trade. We of the North have been especially aggrandized and enriched by our devotion to protection As long as we can make this the para mount issue our parties are safe. But these are perilous times. The passage of the tariff bill at the last session threatened the destruction of both of our parties by the loss of our main Issue. The skill of Mr. Iteed and his friends at the other end of the capitol have furnished a way out. They nave sent us two bills a bond bill and a tariff bill. The bond bill is not of the slightest consequence. Nobody wants it, the Bothschilds are opposed to It and why should we be for it? But it will serve a good purpose. We are on the Finance committee.

18S6. THE A.DVOOjk.T23. SHALL THE STATE CONTROL? Senator Forney Makes Some Suggestions on the Whisky Question. Editor Advocate: Brother Hoch and others seem to be after Governor Morrill with a hot stick, simply be cause he has failed to enforce the pro hibitory law and sees fit to offers remedy which might do some good, viz.: State control. I am afraid the Governor does not mean it, and offers this solution of the whisky question to back out on. The manufacturer of whisky by the States or nation, the establishing of dispensaries and furnishing it at cost, is the Fopulist plan, hot Morrill's. Friend Hoch denounces this and the Tillman plan as socialistic. Suppose it is; what is the difference if it assists in driving out or controlling the greatest curse of our land ? The Populists have not made a fight upon this question for the reason that article 236 of the con stitution of the State prohibits the manufacture of whisky; also, we have a statute known as the "Murray law" which is ce...
