Tim :jxruTsoArpi&. TC3 FISHT IX KANSAS. From the Kansas City Star. It strikes practical people who do not make politics a trade that the two Repub lican committees of Kansas have adopted the .wrong policy in dealing with the Farmers' Alliance, or "People's party," aa its leaders choose to call it There Is really no cause for the boastful "congrat ulatory addresses" which hare been given to the press from various sources on an average of about once a week since the recent county elections. There was no great principle involved in these contests. They were only local, and the result does not justify euchawaateof ink, paper and thought The fact that the Republicans gained two-thirds, or three-fourths, or four-fifths, or whatever the porportion may have been, of the officers chosen in the 186 counties of the state, . is nothing to boast of for a party which has been accustomed to winning the entire list of these officers, and that practically without opposition for nearly a third of...

Devoted to the Interests of the Farmers Alliance and Industrial Union and Other Kindred Organizations. VOL. III. NO. 18. TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1891. 81.00 PER YEAR. WASHINGTON EDITORIAL CORRESPOND ENCE. One of the ancient philosophers, who was wont to utter sententious remarks, put forth the following: "Vice, virtue and time are three things that never stand still." . One of the last roses of summer for Kansas Republicans was uttered jointly and collectively by a committee of nine political barnacles, as a supreme ex tremlty of their wisdom In these glowing words: "Our debts stand for oar investments and and not for our losses. They represent our enterprise, and not our misfortune; our property, and not our poverty. "Kansas is emerging from an era of gen eral depression that is not limited to state lines. "The wandering vagabonds who have joined the Alliance for political purposes only, and who are trying to make a Uving by the sweat of their jaws instead of honest...

tax impoeed by needless hauls. Only those somewhat familiar with the extent of the diversions from direct routes can form any confeption of the aggregate saving that would be effected by such change as would result from national ownership, and which may safely be es timated as equal to 2 per cent of the entire cost of the railway service, or $25, 000,000 per annum. With the government operating the railways there would be a great reduc tion in the number of men employed in towns entered by more than one line. For instance, take a town vhere there are three or more railways, and we find three (or more) full-fledged 6taffs, three (or more) expensive up town freight and ' ticket offices, three (or more) separate sets of all kinds of officials and em ployes, and three (or more) separate de pots and yards to be maintained. Under governmen control these staffs except in very large cities would be reduced to one, and all trains would run into one centrally located depot; freight and pas se...

While true charity is always com mendablo, the habit of always using a telescope with which to discover a worthy object upon which to dispense it while so many snch are visible to the naked eye, is not altogether above suspicion. If the Minnesota and Chicago philanthropists would nar row the scope of their vision and look about them, they would undoubtedly find many worthy objects of charity nearer home. Neither Minneapolis nor Chicago are said to be entirely without them. .

G SHOULD THE NATION OWN THE RAIL WAYS T" ( Continued from third page.) traffic associations would be saved, and railway users relieved of a tax that judg Ing from the reports of a limited number of corporations of their contributions towards the support of such organiza tlons, must annually amount to between four and five million dollars. Of the COO corporations operating rail ways, probably 500 maintain costly general offices, where president, treas- urer and secretary pass the time sur rounded by an expensive staff. The ma jority of such officers are off the lines of the respective corporations, in the larger cities, where high rents are paid, and great expenses entailed, that proper at tention may be given to the bolstering or depressing the price of the corporation's shares, as the management may be long or short of the market So far as the utility of the railways is concerned as In etruments of anything but speculation, such offices and officers might as well be located in the ...

In the United States one of the useless traffic associations pays its chief umpire nearly as much as Victoria pays her entire com mission. Those desirous of entering the railway service of Victoria are subjected to such a rigid examination as to qualifications and character, that but little more than one-third are able to pass the ordeal, and a high standard of excellence in the personnel of the service results; when these servants are disabled or worn out by long service, they are pensioned or given a retiring allowance, and this sys tem tends to reduce the...

Hot Griddle Cakes. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder possesses a peculiar merit not approached by that of any other baking powder. It produces the hot buckwheat, Indian or wheat cakes, hot biscuit, doughnuts, waffles or muffins. Any of these tasteful things may be eaten when hot with impunity by persons of the most delicate digestive organs. Dr. Price's Cream Bak ing Powder leavens without fomentation or decomposition. In its preparation none but the purest of cream of tartar, so da, etc. is used, and in such exact equivalents as to always guarantee a perfectly neutral result, thereby giving the natu ral and sweet flavor peculiar to buckwheat and other flour that may be used, the natural flavor so much desired and ap preciated by all. The oldest patrons of Dr. Prices powder tell the story, that they can never get the same results from any other leavening agent, that their griddle cakes, biscuits, etc. are never so light and never taste so sweet or so good as when raised with Dr. Price...

TH3 M)VOOATSL heartily endorse the action of their patriotic and brave representative. And tne true Alliance men of Georgia, and the country win say, "Well done, good and faithful servant." And here follows some pertinent, practical editorial matter from It: No more unwise advice could be given to the people than that they are to keep their senti ments and wishes to themselves. All that keeps the plutocrats In power Is the silence of the peo ple. There are enough voters In the coantry to day who wish both old partes wiped out of ex istence to wipe them out If they only caused the fact to be generally known by declaring It. The wise and patriotic are those who speak out boldly their true sentiments. It seems to be a hard thing for the partisan press to understand that farmers have a right to organize for any other purpose than that of de vising ways and means for the extermination of squash bugs. In going into politics the Alliance has no more departed from the purposes of Its origin...

TSS1 AIDVOOilTm 1 ' SUB-TEEASUEY Df BTJSSIA. Consul General Crawford at St. Peters burg, has transmitted to the department of state an Important report upon the details and workings of a system now in practice In Russia (resembling cer tain plans incorporated in the platform of the Farmers' Alliance in this country) of making advances on farmers' grain stored in warehouses or delivered to of ficials of the railways of the country. The salient points of the system briefly stated, are as follows: Advances on grain may be made by any railway company on account of the Imperial bank of Russia, authorized by the minister of finance. They must not exceed 60 per cent, of the value of the grain at the nearest market place, except in cases of loans for six weeks or less, when an 80 per cent advance may be ob tained. The usual Interest is 6 per cent payable in advance, with further small charges on account of a sinking fund and commissions to railroads. Loans to range from six months to one ye...
