THS1- ADVOOAl!la 5 I'm biggest when I'm born, is about the size of the BepubUcan victory la Kansas tbls fall -MiUs' Weekly World. The Republican victory in Kansas was bisrest before it was born. It died "a bora in." A. G. Stacey, who was discharged from the Kansas City Journal, be cause of his utter unreliability, has found a place with the Leavenworth Times. The reputation of the Times for truthfulness and fairness will not be improved by this acquisition to its staff of correspondents, MIXED AS USUAL.

TUU3 -AJDVOOA.T23i G the ostrich hiding its head in the SAND. If a political party was ever par ticularly unfortunate in having a set of editorial writers who seemed not to know their right hand from their left, the feeble remnant of the once powerful Republican party of Kan sas furnishes the strong object lesson in that specific line. This party, weaker by G5,000 votes than it was three years ago in the Sunflower state, and a People's party confronting it with upwards of 113, 000 recorded votes in 1891 this poor old going-out Republican party is presumptuous enough, in its confess edly dying day, to volunteer gratui tous and stupid advice to the political party of the near future. The Capital, which is nothing if not incomprehensive, having stuck its putrid head in sand, like a coarse chump, invites a vigorous attack from the party it so industriously maligns, but the poor object is so small "the game is hardly worth the candle." In an elaborate editorial on "Confi dential advice t...

rasa iUDVoaiiTm VEEY GRATIFYING. It is a source of great satisfaction to The Advocate, after compiling one of the most complete tables of election returns ever given to the people, to see exchanges giving the credit of it to the state central com mittee. Such is the reward of merit This table was compiled by J. C. Hebbard, associate editor of The Advocate, and the best statistician in the state; and the state central com mittee had nothing to do with it. Another table by the same author appears in this issue, which will be very useful in making comparisons and estimating the past and present strength and prospects of parties. THRILLING WORDS FROM PRESIDENT CANNON.

JL35tUE33 OF THE NATIONAL CENTRAL CGXXITTXX OP THE PEOPLE'S PASTY. , The national committee of the People's party of the United States deem it proper to lay before their constituents at this time some statement of the results of the conference held by them with rlous representatives of organized Indus try In this city during the last few days. Those results have been In every respect most satisfactory. There is no longer any doubt that candidates for president and vice president will be in the field be fore June 1, 1892 nominated by the Peo pie's party. It seems to us very plain that the time has come when no influ ence of the old political organizations and no power of aggregated capital can prevent the hearty and unanimous com lag together and co-operation of all the labor forces of the United States, whether employed in the workshop, or in the mine, or on the farm. This is an important event in the his tory of the nation and of civilized man there has been no precedent for it in ...

0 C01L0SSAL CHX2X To the Editor of Ths Advocatk. At the recent annual convention of the American Banker's Association, held at New Orleans, November 11 and 12, the national bankers through their mouth piece, John Jay Knox, formulated the following astonishing and impudent pro position, or plan for a flexible circulating medium. Mr. Knox said: What we need in a oountry like this, if we are to have a bank circulation, which I hope we are to have at some time in the future, is a circulation which is both safe and elas tic I grant that the national bank circula tion, while it filled all of three requirements of safety, convertibility and uniformity, was defective in the principle of elasticity. The proposition which I had the honor to present to Congress was in brief terms the following: That banks organized in this oountry should be allowed to issue a circula tion upon 75 per cent, of their capital. A bank of $400,000 capital shouldjiave the right to issue circulation to the amount of ...

We want ten Bimple instead of one bun dred and twenty-six complex rates of pen sions. We want our pensions paid in advance, the same as the interest is paid to the bond holders. We want our pensions paid to us by our postmasters, as the pensioners are paid who reside in foreign oountries.

.Tim ADVOOATSi Circular of The Farman Alliance Insur ance Co., of Kansas. Topeka, November 10. W, H.MoBride, state superintendent of insurance, has noti fied the Farmers' Alliance insurance com pony that it cannot do business in this tate under the Kansas laws. This is the com pony which the executive council of the Alliance concluded to father at Salina and appointed a superintendent to control. The objections of the state superintendent are that it does not confine itself to the mem bership of the Farmers' alliance. W. Biddle, the present Alliance president, was the man who, as chairman of the Alliance insurance committee, started the company. The above is being cirulated through the press to the detriment of this com pany, which is doing business etrictly In accordance with and under the authority of the insurance department and strictly in conformity with the laws of Kansas. We shall ever stand by the rules of the insurance department and propose to so conduct our business that ...

wsm-AiyvoaATm. INTRINSIC VALUE. To the Editor of Th Advocate. Ilr, D. C. McMillan of Nw York, 'In Tnar Advocate of November ' 11, 1891, la a labored article of a column and a half in length, attempted to enlighten ths lenighted'west upon what constitutes Intrinsic (?) value in money. It is aald that the philosophers of Paria were trying to 'solve the problem,MWhy a vecoel full of water did not discharge any water when a fish wai put Into it?" Benjamin Franklin was asked to solve the problem. Franklin refused to at tempt an explanation of the phenomenon until he saw the fish In the vessel. The water ran over. It saved a great deal of phlloeophyzlng. The Intrinsic value Idea Is a parallel ' case. Let us first understand what value is before we attempt to define what Intrin sic value Is. Value is not wealth, yet all wealth possesses value, modified by its territorial location. Value simply expresses the relation of things in exchangs. Value Is not wealth, it Is a comparison or calculat...

WASHINGTON EDITORIAL CORRESPOND ENCE. A pleasant railroad ride of hundreds of milea from the capital of Kansas to the capital of the great nation of the United States of America, has impressed me with the idea that a very brief descrip tion of the same might have some Inter est to some of the readers of The Advo cate who have an acquaintance with the subscriber, and, moreover, it becomes asolid satisfaction to say a word con cerning the lines of road over which traveled in making my journey. On the 27th I boarded the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe at Topeka, at 4.-05 p, m., and on the trip of sixty-seven miles to Kansas City stops were made only at Lawrence, Holliday and Argentine. It were idle to descant upon the merits of this great system which, from Chicago to ban Diego in Lower California, makes a...

THAT POSTAL BANK BILL. To the Editor cf Thi Advocate. In The Advocate of the 11th, I see an article that at least tacitly endorses the bill proposed by the Farm, Field and toeman,entitled the'Tostal Savings and Loan Bill." The bill had attracted my attention some time since, but as It waa not In line with the Farmers' Alliance and People's party demands, I passed it by without any particular notice, as one of the many efforts of the tools of plu tocracy to attract the attention of the people from their effort to secure a per manent cure of their financial trouble and satisfy them with a temporary palla tive; but when I Baw what is likely to be considered The Advocate's opinion of the bill and that a favorable opinion, began to think that I was surely mis taken and so gave the subject a recon sideration with the following result, and If I am wrong I would like to know it: The bill first provides that the postal service be required to combine with its duties, a large portion of the bu...

TEES ADVOOA'ia 3 KAILROAD' LEGISLATION. To the Editor ol The Advocate. I said in a former article that the Re publican party and the railroads of Kan eaa had joined forces to defeat the Peo ple's party. Ilere is the evidence from a Republican stand point See clippings from the Hutchison Daily News of No vember 14, 1891: Everything seems to be conspiring to crush the Alliance movement and similar demagogy in the western states. The abund ant crops this year fall like a fearful blight upon the budding hopes of the prophets of calamity. And in their foolish warfare on the railroads the western demagogues are finding that they have anew and formidable factor with which to reckon. It is the vote the railroad men. It is only lately that the railroad em ployes htve combined for self protection against "granger" legislation that harms them by making railroad property unprofit able, but they seem to be doing their work effectively. The Iowa Republicans were un wise enough to renominate for r...

ESGDX ISLAND HONEY BASED ON LAND. ' Scch is the title of an editorial in tha Atchison Champion of November 18. The high character which the Champion has sustained for truth fulness and fairness in its dealings both with the Alliance and the Peo ple's party, entitles whatever it may say to the most respectful considera tion. Though Republican in politics, it has held itself far above any other Republican paper m the state, and has never participated in aay of the slander and misrepresentation that has characterized its cotemporaiiea. Keeping this fact in view, we can not attribute the erroneous state ments in the editorial under con sideration to any intention to be un fair or to misstate historic facts. The Champion has simply failed to examine its authorities with sufficient care. In order that there may be no misunderstanding as to its position upon the subject, we quote all that part of the editorial in reference to the question cf fact. It is as fellows: An esteemed patron of th...

AJDVCOATia. . ' .'. nxxcsas. To the Editor of Ths Advooatk. For many years the people of the coun try have been receiving false education from evory source the press, the plat- ' form, and even the pulpit, on the great economic and political questions involv ing the general welfare and best interests cf the masses. By the assiduities of capitalists, false doctrines have been in culcated, either directly or by innuendo, until, we, as a people, have drifted far from the original and beneficent prlnci " pies of the common law and the sound philosophy of the great patriots of our country. So true is this that we find the , great moneyed interests and corporations intrenched in what they are pleased to call vested rights, perverting these sain tary provisions of our constitution and laws and utterly ignoring and defiantly trampling on the more sacred tights of the people. Our legislative bodies have too often been the mere venal agents of capitalists, our executives their menials,whose h...
