Devoted to the Interests VOL. III. NO. U. PRESIDENT FOLK'S ADDHES3. At the Annual Meeting of the Farmers' Alll ance and Industrial Union, at Indianapolis, Indiana, November, 1891. To the Supreme Council of the National Farm ers' ana lnauamal union: Assembled here as the accredited repre sentatives of the farmers of almost every state in the union, you cannot be unmind ful of the weighty responsibility vhich at taches to our position. Entrusted with the high duty of legat ing for a great organization whose success or failure may depend on your action, I feel assured that you will address yourselves to the task with that deliberation and patriotio purpose demanded by the situation, and the stupendous interests that have been com mitted to your charge. Upon no body of men, perhaps, in our history, since the meeting of the continental Congress, has greater or graver respond. bilities devolved, than upon this assembly. Theirs was the high and exalted duty of es tablishing a republican fo...

2 S3ERMAN VEESU8 EHEJY. Senator 8herman, of ,01ilo, la Badljr Hit and Flatters in his Agony Just like Any Com mon Bird-Congressman John Davis Re plies to the Senator's latest Letter on Finance. A few years ago Mrs. S. E. V. Emery, of Michigan, emptied a quiver of arrows into the ranks of the people's enemies. The darts seemed light and feathery, and the bow-string was drawn with the weak arm of a woman. Yet the shafts were winged and pointed with truth and jus tice, and the woman's arm was nerved with an earnest patriotism. Very soon the wounded birds began to flutter and the broken wings were trailing in the dust. In the year 1888, 50,000 copies of Mrs. Emery's little book were showered among the people of Kansas. Under their fructifying Influence the seeds of thought began to spring up in every heart The rage of the enemy knew no bounds. Great lawyers and judges of courts wrote pamphlets and newspaper broadsides, which were circulated by Republican committees and corporation newsp...

EKE3 ASDVOOATUX 1 in fact, two bonanzas combined. This law was passed during one of the dark est periods of the war, when patriots, statesmen, generals, soldiers and people were straining every nerve to save the country. It pounced upon its prey like a panther, when the victim was bleed ing at every pore. Moulton's history of American finance, page 131, states the case as follows: Mr. Sherman now introduced the na tional bank bill. After a lengthy debate, it passed the Senate by a vote of twenty-three to twenty-one. In the meantime there had been several bills for the same purpose in troduoed and referred to the committee in the House. When the Senate bill came down it was not referred as usual, but brought before the House without consider ation in committee with other similar bills. It was not discussed in committee of the whole, but under a motion to refer, which cut off all amendments, the friends of the bill debated its general merits. When by parliamentary tactics it was foroe...

THE .iUDVCOA'fia' 5 In the make-up of the table in Tee Advocate that relates to the elections of 1891, and that of earlier years in Kansas, it may be in order here to pay that the disposition to be emi nently fair to our Democratio and Republican friends may have oper ated to some extent in doing injustice to the People's party in some counties of our commonwealth, in the returns made of the election results of this year. It is morally certain that the strength of the People's party in Kansas is greater than the figures would indicate for them in the table, and our friends in such counties where their strength has been under esti mated we trust will appreciate the feeling that obtained to make their political power less instead of greater than it really was. The People's par ty in Kansas have made a mcst ex cellent showing in the election of 1890 and of 1891, and the trend of events is such that they will have the ten electoral votes of the state in 1892. THE ACTUAL VOTE OP THE PEOP...

Tee Lawrence Journal booms Hon. A. W. Smith of McPherson county, in the following gracious manner: For several years it has been claimed that the "state house ring" at Topeka has urged the nomination of Farmer Smith for governor. If there Is such a thing In existence as a "state house ring," It will not do that next year. Thz following tid-bits are from the Lawrence Record: , The red fUg Is the harvest sown by the Mc KlnleybllL There Is scarcely a county In Kansas to day that could not be carried by a close union of Democrats and People's party men asalnst Republicans. There Is nothing left for the fanner but the privilege of pajlng the taxes the government assesses upon him for the benefit of the manu facturer. The farmers deserve equal rights with other classes those rights are indignantly rejected. The oartv to which they have turned for relief answers with sneers and shouts of drunken ac claim over the 'partial victory of a policy which plunders them of millions more for the ben...

TS223 ADVOOAT321 I! CONCERNING SOME RAILROAD LEGISLA TIQN. To the Editor of The Advocate. In speaking of the recent election you fail to notice one of the most important factors in the mongrel mass which has combined to down the People's party. As chairman of the House committee on railroads last session, I think I can give the people of Kansas a little light on the matter of the combining of the "conserv atlve forces" to defeat the populist. I want to say right here that this combina tion has, in part, at least, been made at cost of honor, legislative dignity, and, as usual, at the expense of the wealth pro ducers of Kansas. I say this not from any partisan spirit, for 1 am not a bitter partisan, never have been, never ezpeot to be. I do not believe that all of the goodness belongs to any one political party. The fact that a man belongs to this or that political party does not make him either a good or a bad man. I be lieve the masses of all parties are honest, for what motive can ...

T1IE1 ADVOOATQ -f NOT DISCOURAGE). People's Party Men and Newspapers Not Scared by the Boastings of the EepuD lkana. Mr. P. P. Adams, chairman of the People's central committee of Reno county, in a late official address to the people of that county, says : "As already stated, we have nocause for discourage ment The returns of the late election ehowthat the People's party has gained thousands of votes in Kansas over the vote of last year, and If we do our duty now the electoral vote of Kansas will not be counted next year for the. Repub licans, the party of monopoly, trusts and combines." The Abilene Monitor thus Inquires and reasons: "Where have the exulting Republicans gained their great victories In this state? In what ' counties have they demolished the People's partyt They set up a great crow but fail to dem onstrate that they have any thing to crow over. The fact is the g. o. p. has come out of the fight weaker and worse rattled than last year, while the People's party has gain...

We feel greatly encouraged : over the result of the election end not a man thinks of going back to either of the old parties, for all of our people are educated and they cannot be induced to leave us and join the reciprocity party or any other Republican tide-show, but are going ahead in the right direction. We polled sixty-five Votes here last year and 202 this, and the Republicans made a very bitter fight against ut here. It took the entire force to down us, but they will not be able to do it again. '. I see the Republicans are scared and have arranged to form Republicanjcluba in every township in the state. Out here they call them ''reciprocity clubs" to mislead the uneducated of their persuasion. They see the chances are very unfavorable for them to carry the state next fall and they seem to understand the situation thor o...

The official returns show that we have cast 6,383 more votes than our candidate for governor received in 1890, while the Re publican vote is 23,689 less than the vote cast for Lyman U. Humphrey last year. The Democratic vote of the state has dwindled from 71,857 in 1890 to 31,833 in 1891. There was a Democratic-Republican vote cast of 39,858; and while, through the manipulation of this vote we have lost many county officers, yet, through outrthe state we have carried the town ship and local offices almost ten to one.

AGES, AND WOMAN'S PLACE IN THEM. BtA BXFORX KANSAS XQUAL BDFFBAOI AS- SOCIATION. Long ago when man's Ideal Of the noble and the brave Was to role by force his brother And to hold him as a slave, lie of mighty frame and muscle Was the hero of the hour. And the number he bad conquered Made the measure of bis power. But the world was never richer For the strength he valued so. And his weaker brothers labored That no labor he might know. . In Return he fed them scantly Gave them filthy rags to wear, And was gen'rous but In giving Out the stripes they had to bear. HI fared woman ; weakest creature In that Iron age of force; Servile drudge and helpless victim Of man's passions fierce and coarse. But the race was growing older; Simple brute strength failed to find rwer to rule the wiser mortals Who had grasped the age of mind.

BBBDXXS RESTING ON THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Julian Hawthorne, son of the late dis tinguished Nathaniel Hawthorne, has been interviewing President Harrison and the following is from the published interview, writted by Mr. nawthorne: u 'I can't hide anywhere; I cant hide any wherel' said President Harrison to me a few mornings since. "The saying went deep Into my mind. It was the keynote of an interesting con versation. Though It was uttered with a sort of grim humor characteristic of the man, there was a pathos in it and a volume of unspoken history. "A plain man I found him; neither cordial nor cold. When I entered he was jotting down some memoranda on a small writing pad, but as I approached he looked up, got to his feet, said, 'How do you do, Mr. Hawthorne?' and gave me his hand. His manner was that of one withdrawing himself, with something of an effort, from pressing affairs and ad justing himself to an interruption. And a3 1 looked in his face and met his eyes I was ...
