knew 0 THE NATIONAL , UNION COMPANY. We published last week an expose of this company's plan as adopted the meetiog of state business agents at Indianapolis. Let ns now consider some of its results should it be sue cessfully carried into effect. The plan of the company contem plates securing one leading manufac turer in each productive industry as a stockholder, by which arrangement the goods of this manufacturer would be handled by the company to the ex elusion of those of all competing es tablishments.; Hence, should the com pany succeed in monopolizing the re tail trade, as it contemplates doing, the result at that end of the line afa, would be the ruin of all competition in manufactures. There is no doubt that during the time required to gain possession of the field, the peopl would be able to buy the best of goods for very low prices. This is the means by which all monopolies first gain control of any business. We might cite here the operations of the dressed beef combine, whic...

c THE NEW SILVER LAW. Attica, Kan., Dec. 22, 1831. To the Editor of The Advocate. The enclosed clipping Is an editorial from the Chenango Union, Norwich, New York, In Its Issue of December 10, 1891. It Is Democratic In politics. The point that conflicts with what I had sup posed to be law I have marked. I had under stood the law to be to Issue silver cetlflcatesto pay for bullion, but If I understand the enclosed, they claim It to be paid out of the treasury or money already In existence. Please explain in Tun advocate. D. Rose, Secretary Jappa Alliance No. 838. Yes, we will explain. Although the same matter has before been pub lished in The Advocate, our readers are somewhat forgetful, and it will bear repeating. It is interesting reading. The marked item above referred to occurs in italics in the following paragraph. We quote enough of the context to make its meaning intelli gible: The present silver law makes the United States an extensive purchaser of silver bullion. Under Its p...

ram: advooath 7 he claims can be depended upon as strictly true and accurate: MWe were figuring up the other day the ex tent of the deal and the profits on It We found that before the silver taken in by the various pools for the expected rise was 40.000 000 ounces. That Is our entire product for eight months, you know. The pool I am in bought some at a little less than 95. The rest cost us something more than 95 Th average for the whole was about 07. August Belmont and his friends got In at from 95 to 98. Silver has been as high as 120. I think 20 cents an ounce Is a fair estimate of the profits of the pools to this time. Twenty cents an ounce on 40,000,000 ounces Is 18,0(10000. Well, that represents the profits made by the New York and Washington pools on the advance of sliver. The largest pool of all, probably, was one which took In seven United States Senators and a number of New York capitalists. That pool had 9 000,000 ounces. The other holders were small, but altogether they m...

THE iLDVOOA-TEl IS INTEREST A TAX - ON PRODUCTIVE INDUSTRY 7 To the Editor of Thx Advocath. My attention has been called to an article published In the Effingham Graphic, over the signature of Francis Schletzbaum, in which Mr. S. seems to attempt to found a new school :6f politi cal economy, One of the tenets of which is that interest is "no more a tax on pro ductive industry than are the wages paid a farm hand a tax on the productive in dustry of farming." In formulating the above proposition, or tenet, Mr. S. loses sight of the fact that it Is only to the extent that the proprietor-farmer himself works that he is a factor In "productive Industry," and that so far as the farm laborer is con cerned, the farmer who hires him is the personification of interest and profit, be cause the amount such laborer lacks of receiving the total product of his labor, Is just the sum taken by the farmer as interest and profit upon the money In vested in the land, stock, tools and ma chinery. The st...

-J T2XE3 ADVOCATH 13 M WASHINGTON EDITOaiAI CORRESPOND ENCE. Mr. Henry Clews,financial letter writer for Wall street, has a letter in the last Financial Review, which contains this frank and funny declaration: "The pros pecta of new legislation receive little at tention from Wall street It Is taken for granted that in view of the party com plexion of Congress, it will be virtually Impossible to enact any new meaaares of special public interest," The humor of the above consists In its frankness. That a responsible writer like Hr. Clews should be able to state as a common place matter of fact that Wall street pays no attention to Congress is open admission that Wall street is secure ly settled in ownership of Congress. There Is nothing novel to persons who have . watched national legislation for several wrs In the statement that "it will be vlr- V impossible to enact any measures fecial public Interest" The people, are not party blind, have long since pd that Congress convenes to sche...

THUS AJDVOOA.TE2. 15 1 ADYISES THE BRETHEEN TO POSTPONE DISCUSSING DETAILS. To the Editor of Thb Advocat. I notice In the American Nonconform ist an article from Hon. A. J. Streeter, taken from the Farmer's Voice, In which he advises reformers to refrain from en tering Into details as to our demands for legislative enactments. I write to say that, in my estimation, hardly anything Is more timely, or of more vital import ance. All indications now point to a speedy coming together of all the great labor organizations of the country; and as there now exists mors or less diversity of details among these different organi zations, and even between different in dividuals of the same organization, har monious and complete unitizing or con- - solidatlon can only be hoped for by leaving details to be agreed upon (if in deed this is necessary at all) after con solidation Is effected. All these great labor bodies are now in substantial harmony as to the more es sential or fundamental economic r...

Even that is more infinencethan the blackguard editor of the Capital has with the governor of Kansas. If Senator Teller's bill to appropri ate $15,000 to stock Alaska with rein deer should become a law, what a tremendous relief it would afford to the depressed industries and labor in terests of this country.

6 TEEB3 AJDVOCA.THI THE NATIONAL UNION COMPANY. Ia aLother column we publish a let ter from Hon. A. F. Allen, of Vinland, concerning this company, and invite attention to some of its fallacies. Mr. Allen says: A damnable financial system . Is forcing to a life and death struggle all Hues of buslnes ex cept such as enter into combines with the money power that controls absolutely the money of the country. He would therefore enter into such a combine with the money power in the National Union Company, and thereby exhibit the hypocrisy of all foimer pretentions of the Alliance without gaining any advantage over the power against which we are con tending or acquiring any shadow of control of ' the concern in whose power he would then volutarily place himself. If Mr. Allen will examine the plan of this company he will see that it does not possess a single element of co-operation such as he has been an advocate of for many years. On the other hand it is an attempt of New York capitalists ...

THIS ADVOOATm 7 THE "HONEST MONEY" FRAUD. Taper the Ttimary Basis for Gold and Gold Bug Currency. The "honest (?) money" system, which is the chief corner-stone in the platform of the Republican party, is a system of money baaed upon paper. The money enters circulation as a loan, secured by a mortgage on prop erty either directly or indirectly. Gold money is no exception to this rule. It does not enter circulation and perform the functions of money until an interest bearing debt is cre ated. All productive securities which are taken as security by the banks derive their sole value from their power to extract usury in some form from the owners of property. , Every dollar of this money passes through the banks a number of times, and an interest bearing debt is created every tjme, thus adding debt upon debt and usury upon usury with no in crease in the number of dollars by which these debts can be paid. This process has been continued until all the money in the nation is only suffi cie...
