THE ADVOCATE. 9 the history of bankrupt railroads. In stead or Improving the courts seem to be growing worse." . Sam Lee, formerly a prominent Be publican of Douglas county, is serving a five-years' sentence at Lansing for perjury. He swore to false statements in order to get possession of a valuable claim in Oklahoma. The Kansas City Gazette says that the recent decision of the Supreme court in the Snow-Hudson case, in con nection with other things going on has raised the question of whether Kansas is going to seed. Brown county officers, whose salaries were cut by a salary bill passed in 1891 will make an attempt through the courts to get the amount of the reduc tion on the ground that the law is not constitutional. They are redeemers. Until recently the county offices of Kearney county were in a building leased from a private owner. While so occupied the building burned. Now the owner has brought suit against the county for the value of the building. Harper county has been redist...

14 THE ADVOCATE January 22, A FARMER'S STATEMENT, Hw a FrogreMlT AcrlcoltorUt Vim the Road Question. No ens disputes the advantages of good roads. There is no one who does not desire good roads. But, like a good many other good things that we de sire,we cannot always see our way clear to get them. We are- often compelled to get along with what is inferior be cause we have not the means of getting something better. There has been a great deal of talk about road improve ment, and the belief seems to exist among certain classes that the farmer does not know enough to know that he peeds better roads, and that hence there must be a campaign of education. The farmer knows quite as well as tho bicycle rider what he needs, and he knows much better that if the entire expense of making a road that will please tho bicycle people is to fall on him the construction is out of the ques tion. It would confiscate his farm to do it, while it would not cost the vast majority of the bicycle people a re...

1896. THE ADVOCATE. 15 GOOSEBtfFtrfY CULTURE. The Secret of Thrifty Growth and Rich Yields Explained. During a second visit to the state ex periment grounds near Geneva, N. Y. in August, I learned the seeret of the thrifty growth and yield of the goose berry plants there found in numer ous varieties. The foundation on which this success primarily rests is good strong loam, reinforced by yearly, moderate applications of stable manure and good tillage. Repeated spraying with the solution of silver of sulphur, which the station people prefer to the Bordeaux mixture for this particular purpose, keeps the foliage in good health, and therefore the wood growth normal and strong, and also the fruit free from mildew. With the same con ditions strong plants and plenty of good fruit can be produced elsewhere. There can be no question that goose berries thus handled can be made a very profitable crop.

THE ADVOCATE. A SOUTHERN MARKET. The Importance of a Deep Water Harbor on the Gal! of Mexico. (The following address was delivered before the annual meeting of the 8tate Board of Agriculture by Howel Jones, of Topeka. Mr. President, Ladies and Gentlemen: Daring the past ten years, when deep water harbors on the Gulf of Mexco are mentioned, reference is always had to those Improvements which are being made on the Gulf or Mexico in Texas by the United States government at the mouth of the Sabine river and at Galveston, as well as those carried on by private parties with the consent of the government at the mouth of the Brazos river and at Aransas Pass. All of these harbors, excepting Aran sas Pass, are being improved under what is known as the jetty system. It mijht not be uninteresting to some present to have a jetty defined, as well as their construction described. Jetties in sea-work may be defined to bo constructions, whether partially open or solid, which are built for the purpos...

i89a THE ADVOOATH, 3 VEST ON INCOME LAW. Tae Missouri Senator Scores the Supreme Court Decision. Senator George O. Vest, of Missouri, made a speech in the Senate January 7 in which he referred to the Supreme court decision in the income tax case as follows: "The Wilson act, as it is called,which was enacted by both houses of Congress and became a law without the signa tare of the President, would have fur mshed ample revenue to conduct this government, with a small surplus be sides. If that law had not, as to be tween $40,000,000 and $50,000,000 of taxation, been declared invalid by the Supreme court of the United States, there would have been no deficit in the treasury, as every intelligent man must concede. That the Supreme court made this decision was a matter of sur prise to every intelligent lawyer in the United States, and especially to those of us engaged in the legislation of the country.

1806. THE ADVOCATE. 5 A DREAM THAT HAY BE REALIZED. Suppose this goyernment had adopted a plan by which money could be raised on non-Interest bonds, to be used in paying for public work country roads, bridges, court houses, township halls, city streets, etc. There is no reason why such a system should not be adopted, except that it would destroy the occupation of the usurers and bond brokers. Just think of the result! Instead of millions of idle men complaining of the hard times and living on air, water and short ra tions, we might have a nation of busy and happy people. Everybody that wanted to would be earning money, and would be paying cash for their meat, wheat, corn, vegetables, eggs, butter, dry goods and shoes, and still save some money for old age. Every kind of legitimate business would be profitable, and the country would be growing wealthier and more beautiful every day, by reason of the improve ments being made. Even government railroads might be built and river and harb...

G tmmmmi THE ADVOCATE January 29, WAY BACK IN 1879 The Treasonable Schemes of the Goldites Were Exposed by Gen. Ewlnj and Others. The recent death of Thomas Ewing calls to mind the heroio fight he and a few others in Congress made on the Re publican resumption-gold basis-credit strengthening-honest money schemes which had then recently been launched, and the effects of which were just be coming visible. Following is an abstract of a epeoch made by Gen. Ewing in Con gress on February 22, 1879, The reader will see that it is almost as strong in its denunciation of the money power as any thing of the present day. It sounds al most like a prophecy, and when one sees how conditions have kept growing worse in the same direction during all these seventeen years he wonders how the peo ple's patience has endured it. The business on the Speaker's table was the bill (H. R', No. 805) to repeal all that part of the act approved January 14, 1875, known as the "resumption act," authorizing the Sec...

the jh.iD'v oojrui. LEGAL TENDER CUREENCY. BY JOHN DAVIS. Mr. S. W. Prescott, of Cavalier, North Dakota, desires me to tell him whether the paper currency of France and New Zealand are legal tender; and whether they are redeemable In coin. A8 to the French currency, it ia safe to say that It la legal tender for all pur poses, except, perhaps, a portion of the national debt. And, as a rule, all currencies are theoretically redeemable in coin; but when legal tender for taxes and private debts, no coin re demption is necessary. In the case of the legal tender paper of well-established governments like France, every body prefers the paper to coin, and the subject of coin redemption is merely a theory, with no value in practice. No body wants it. As to New Zealand, that country Is a British colony, and it is safe to say that the British government will not permit any British colony to issue a fulllegal tender currency. It is theo retically redeemable In gold, but they have found it neces...

It is Im possible to give bis sermon in fall, but the following extracts indicate tht Rev.

He said: "Instead of exchanging Christmas greetings, Cleveland and Salisbury have been squabbling like two news boys over a marble. It is a ridiculous and Immoral spectacle. Both nations have been disgraced by the hoodlum conduct of their rulers.

Editor Advocate: As a constant reader of reform papers, publications, addresses, etc., I am impressed by the general lack of clearness and of defi nite views of causes of and remedies for the abuses complained of. Too often the same writer or speaker will bitterly condemn a certain result of antecedent causes or policies which could not possibly produce any other result than the one condemned, yet have no word of reproof for, or even a defense of, the policies producing the ef facts complained of. The result is often seen in propositions for remedies which would prove as disappointing 3 has the Republican remedy of "pro tection" proven to the Western farmer Even the ablest leaders are too much given to glittering generalities and vague sentimentallsm, rather than spe cific measures on a definite question.
