1896. THE ADVOCATE, 9 Beacon; Secretary, W. Y. Morgan, Hutchinson News; Treasurer, W. L. Brown, Kingman Journal. The last circular letter issued by Secretary Eichard Wake In reference to the March 3 convention of the State Temperance Union indicates that the body is getting ready to cut loose from the Republican influences and take a square stand as to the present admin istration. It says, among other things: "Fears have been expressed that a strong effort will be made by the friends of Governor Morrill to capture our convention so as to prevent any denunciation of his course on prohibi tion. The Temperance Union is not charged with the duty of building up or breaking down any man or party. Its sole work is to further the work of prohibition. If officials are unfaithful, or parties are recreant to the cause, they should expect and receive stern rebuke at the hands of the convention. This is no time for the use of honeyed words and silken phrases. When an executive, whose sworn duty ...

10 TJtiS ADVOCATE. FlBBDARV 20, HOME READING TOO LATE. What silence we keop year after year. With those who are moat near to us and dear! We live beside each other day by day. And speak of myriad things, but seldom say The fall, sweet word that lies just In our reach. Beneath the commonplace of common speech. Then out of sight and out of reach they go These close familiar friends, who loved us so ; A nd. sitting in the shadow they have left, Alone with loneliness, and sore bereft, We think with vain regret of eome fond word That once we might have said and they have heard. For weak and poor the love that we ex pressed, -Now seems beside the vast sweet unexpressed And alight the deeds we did, to those undone, And small the service spent, to treasure won, And undeserved the praise for word and deed That should have overflowed the simple need. Thin is the cruel cross of life to be roll vlsloned only when the ministry Of death has been fulfilled, and in the place Of soma dear presence I...

1803. THE ADVOCATE, 11 Cy Inland's Applejack. The following from the Chicago Chronicle indicates what kind of a reputation Kansas ia getting away from home and all because of the Re publican party's persistency in keeping its disreputable leaders in the saddle. It may, however, be probable that the influences referred to cut a material figure In assisting Cyrus to hold his job. At any rate the thing has gone to the extent that it is not surprising that Morrill should feel ashamed of his crowd and the State when he is in a rational mood. The Chronicle says: "Cy Leland is the Kansas member of the National Republican committee. That, however, is not his chief glory. In Kansas Cy Leland lives in the hearts of his countrymen because he distills the finest quality of applejack that ever dillghted the palate of a dweller in a prohibition State. It is not red, but it shows its color in the gloss and does not, in the end, bite like a serpent or sting like an adder. "Cy's famous applejack has...

In thesa times of business depression mi bank suspension, people who hap pen to have a few dollars which they are desirous of laying away are some what at a loss to know what to do with it, or where to put it for safe keeping. These who understand the true busi neaa conditions know that there are a large number of banks still in opera tion which are not safe depositories. Robberies occur too frequently to trust it in the homes. The old custom of bury In 2 it is not. satisfactory. Indeed, to be absolutely safe seems almost an impossibility. But there is still one safe plan left. That is to go to the postoffice and buy money orders payable to yourself. These orders may be retained for one year within ' which time they must be presented for payment. The largest order which can be bought at one time in $100. It costs 45 cents. Only three such orders payable to the same person at the same oflice may be bought in one day. If for an...

Wind breaks for orchards is a subject cf grat importance in the northwest, to everybody interested in growing apples. A close observer, writing in The Farm Journal, tells that the result of his ob servation, coupled with experience, has caused him to accept the following as facts : If a wind break is planted close to the orchard, or if the orchard is small and surrounded on all sides by a dense wind break, the result is sure to be disastrous. It is impossible to grow a successful or chard that is closely hemmed in on all Bides by a dense growth of timber. A good wind break is, however, a necessary adjunct and should always be provided if you .would make your orchard a suc cess. The first great question to be con sidered in planting a...

"Infamy will pursue your name even after you are in the grave" shouted Senator Teller (Rep.) of Colorado, on the Senate floor, shaking his finger at Senator Sherman while he spoke. This was the termination of a con trovers? between Republicans in the Senate chamberon February 20, over a discussion of the rev enue bill. The bill was temporarily defeated by the action of silver Repub licans who were retaliating for the treatment their silver bill had received at the hands of the House. John Sherman had just denounced the free coinage oj silver as a dishonest proposition and insinuated that its ad vocates were inspired by dishonest motives, their object being to cheat their creditors. Sherman boldly de clared in favor of a gold standard, casting off all his meek and mock phrases about bimetallism. He insin uate...

The price of most articles controlled entirely by them, as illuminating oil, sugar, coal, railroad rates, etc., have risen rather than fallen, and will con tinue so to do. They are continually buying their principal article of pur chase labor lower, and selling their products the necessaries of life at a higher price.

TS2323 ADVOOATE. Tha Signs Are Encouraginff. Editor Advocate: The leaven seems to be working. Ia thi3 year of oar Lord 1896 Americans may expect to see great progress mads in bringing about reform in oar government. The trend of current events shows a won derf ul degree of independence on the part of men who think and who have become able to divest themselves of prejudice; and the number of people who now realize that their own "pent up Utica" is not all there is of this great country is becoming rapidly augmented. This is good. The signs of the times point to an early revolution in the politics of this nation. The Monroe doctrine has been invoked to test the Question as to whether Americans are thirsting for gore to the extent of being ready to leave their families to starve while they go and "lick England," and hap pily for our people, and much to their credit, it can be now said of them that they are still insisting on justice being done at home first. Prominent men in the old pa...

180G. 5 THE ADVOCATE. perance. That is, it is a menace to more people. The wage earner who is out of a job, the merchant whose goods are getting old waiting for buyers, the farmer who sees the price of his prod ucts gradually decline in proportion to the increasing "honesty" of the dol lar none of these are caring very much whether the rich man spends his money for drinks or sends it to the heathen missionaries. Neither are these honest people lying awake to con trive a plan by which they can get drinks more conveniently. They have something else to think about. They do, however, begin to recognize the whisky monopoly as one which will some day have to be cleaned out along with other monopolies.

And it was never so clear that those who imagine that free coinage of silver is the greatest of issues in this country win nave to sees lttnrougn the third party movement. This is what can be heard on all sides. It is agreed that harmony through a compro mise on the financial question is out of the question.

1896. THE ADVOOATB. 7 WHO PAYS THE TAXES If BY W. II. T. WAKEFIELD NO. IV. The balance sheet in No. 3 of this series will not fit every farmer, but is an average, In proportion to land t'sed, of Western farmers. In preparing it we have given the benefit of all doubts to the farmer, and have made his taxes less than the most reliable statistics in dicate them to be. The receipts may seem large to some, but they are less than the capacity of an average quarter-section farm, and we have made prices below the average of the past five years. In giving farmers 10 per cent, of land values we make no reduction for mortgages or renters. The land values regardless of improve ments actually owned free of incum brance by working farmers certainly does not exceed 5 or 6 per cent, of total land values, which is less than the per cent, of personal property, including improvements on land, owned by real farmers. The worse than worthless census of 1890 assumes an assessment of 50 per cent, of real v...

THUS ADVOCATE. 11 Why Farm Product are Cheap. The Texas Farm and Ranch says: "Farm products are cheaper than ever before in the history of thti country. This may be good for those who farm not, bat consume farm products. Taxes are higher than ever before, and this may be good for those who pay no taxes, but consume the tax money in ealaries and official fees. Is there any hope that these things will change? Not until those who are to be benefited by the change take the bull by the horns and make the change. The office holder, the money-lender and the spec ulator will make a change for the worse, if they interfere at all with the present order. It is useless to look to the present race of politicians for any amelioration of present conditions; but on the contrary if the past is a criterion for tbe future, these fixed charges will be unfixed, and re-arranged on a scale of still greater extravagance. Office holders are to be envied, at least for their worldly prospects, but hardly, if ...
