Under the condition of Secretary Carlisle's circular of January 6, bids for the 3100,000,000 thirty-year 4 per cent. United States bonds were opened at the Treasury Department February 5. The circular stipulated that the bonds must be paid for in gold, and, for the convenience of the purchaser, they might be paid for in installments, as follows: Twenty per cent, at the time of the notice of acceptance and 10 per ceut. at the end of each fifteen days thereafter. The total number of bids was 4,640, aggregating $684,262,850, but one bid of $100,000,000 from Michigan and one of $16,000,000 from Texas were evi dently bogus, and, deducting these amounts, leaves the aggregate of gen uine bids $568,259,850 The Treasury Department was simply overwhelmed by the enormous number of bids re ceived.

TBEEJ ADVOOATB. 5 TI1E STATE CONSTITUTION. In this issue we copy the State con stitution, a document about which a great deal ia eaid and very little known. We hope the fact that bo many lawyers and store-box orators take advantage of every opportunity to mention the constitution, will keep facetious con temporaries and subscribers from thinking that we have just lately dis covered the existence of the document. There is one good reason for print ing the constitution, and that is our readers will find it convenient to have a copy of it in the house, so that they can refer to it without spending $10 for the statute books, or borrowing them of a friendly lawyer or justice. The constitution is the organic law of the State, and with it all legislative acts must conform, just as it must con form with the constitution of the United States. Whenever a judge of the higher courts wishes to decide a case against the provisions of the stat utes, he promptly declares the statute in question unc...

18D6. OT-Klll ADVOOATB. 9, PEFFEK ON COINAGE. (Continued from page 1.) sion of the subject by public men gen erally our American statesmen largely leaned to the opinion that the standard ought to be single and that silver. But the Secretary came to the conclusion that the double standard was better. "After discussing at some length the probable results of a single standard, the Secretary said that the chief if not the sole effect of such a regulation would be to diminish the utility of cne of the metals. He then proceeded to discuss the proportion in which the metals ought to be used, and he came to the same conclusion that Sir Isaac Newton had arrived at in his report to the Treasury of Great Britain in 1717 the proportion of about 1 to 15; 1 unit of weight in gold to 15 of the same units of weight in silver; and such, in fact, was the proportion established in our coinage law the next year.

1896. THE ADVOCATE. WHO PAYS THE TAXES? 15Y W. II. T. WAKEFIELD. NO. I. Tho one or two weak links in the chain of Populist logic re late to the questions of land and taxation, and it is of the latter that we desire to say a few words. Our present system of national taxation is of the stealthy class entirely and differs but little from ordinary theft or open robbery, inasmuch as its processes are so indirect and concealed that the av erage citizen cannot know when or how much he is taxed, and is taxed regard less of his ability to pay, or of benefits received, but in inverse ratio to such ability and benefits. Colbert, the greatest of French Finance Ministers, said: "The only excuse for indirect taxation is that under it the goose of labor can be picked the cleanest of its feathers with the least squawking." Lord Fitt, the greatest of British Premiers, said: "Direct taxation be yond 3 or 4 per cent, will produce a re volt in any free people, but by taxing many articles of necessity s...

The assertion is made and reiter ated that subirrigation ia far superior to surface irrigation, the idea being ad vanced that water reaching a plant's roots after having passed through the soil is much more effective in producing slant growth than that which reaches the plant from the surface ; that water coming in contact with the stalks of plants is detrimental to plant growth. To find ont the results and differences of these different methods experiments were begun in 1890, nnder the auspices of the Utah experiment station, and have been carried on for five years. In the plats trenches were made and Were laid some with cobble rock drains end some with cement pipes. In each case the pipes or drains were put so that three of them would divide a two rod plat in such a way that the seepage from each pip...

"I have been spending a couple of months on the reservation, and visited most of the old fellows who were so unruly when I knew them first. There are not many of them left, and the man who was the worst of the lot at least the most dangerous in 1876 is now a very decent sort of man. Rafc-in-the-Face is getting along in years, but he is sturdy enough yet He is rather proud of his position as a policeman, for that is about all the honor that an Indian attains to on the reservation now, since there are no mo...
