T3MTC A2DVOOAT22. 9 World refers to this matter as follows: BepreeentatiTe Cooper, of Indiana, baa prepared himself to begin anew the war waged with euch rigor againat Commis sioner Banm and the abuses in the pension office. The -white washing investigation conducted by the Republicans in the last Congress afforded Mr. Cooper no opportu nity to substantiate the charges which he has made against Raum, and he will seek to have the Democratic committee tale the matter up and sift it to the bottom. He has prepared a resolution, given below, which will be introduced to the House to morrow and referred to the committee on rules. The resolution recently introduced by Mr. Enloe, of Tennessee, is directly in line with that drawn by Mr. Cooper, and it is understood that it will not in any way in terfere with the inquiry which is expected Mr. Cooper will personally prosecute. The committee on rules will consider the two resolutions early, and it is believed a special committee, of which Mr. Co...

MINOR ISSUE. . .. .... To the Editor of Th Advocate: "While we are absorbed In the discus sion of the three great economic ques tion, finance, transportation and land, tpc should not neglect the minor issues. There are other subsidiary questions, which, while they may not be of as pressiog Importance, yet are by no means of secondary importance. They may be considered aa the minor keys, yet they are as necessary to the complete har mony of the whole as the leading ques tions. The reforms for which we con tend are not alone in the maladministra tion of public afftirs, but in many cases go beyond that and affect the very consti tution and organization of the govern ment itself. Before we can expect to do full and exact justice In any of the pro posed reforms, all offices, from the high est to the lowest, must be made elective; and then, and not till then, will we have a government of the people, for the peo ple and by the people. The spoils sys tem,1hat Is now largely perpetuated by t...

If the people do not give Congress to understand that they will not longer submit to being robbed by such villainous schemes, I am very much afraid the bill will pass in some shape. Why not urge our 22d of February conference to declare in favor of a national system of ship canals for our own country? Such a system as we might readily inaugurate If our so called statesmen were not too much oc cupied in devising ways of enriching the few at the expense of the many would be of untold value to our country at this tlme,bringlngj sunshine and gladness Into homes now darkened by the gaunt shadows of poverty.

Republican sheets of the state are Indulging in expressions like tha following for partisan effect, evidently presuming upon an ignorance and stupidity of the people co-equal with their own base venality: Senator Plumb's untimely end was un doubtedly hastened by the extra burden which devolved upon him as a result of the political revolution in the state last fall. The work of looking after the immense mass of pension, homstead and other claims that fell to his share was enormous, even with a Senatorial colleague and seyen Re publican Congressmen to share it with him, ' but when Ingalls was defeated and five hard-working and experienced Representa tives were replaced by an Alliance delega tion, all of them inexperienced and most of them incapable, Plumb's already heavy load was doubled at once.

THE OTHER SIDE OP THE STEVEN'S COUNTY TROUBLE. To the Editor of The Advocate. As the associated press dispatches sent from the southwestern part of the state have charged that the Citizens' Alliances of tha section of the country are respon sible for the murder of Sheriff Dunn, and as Botkln and his friends have claimed through the press that there are some seven or eight Citizens' Alliance organiza tions cattered over his judicial district, in which the conspiracy to kill him has been planned, let us look now at the aide that has not appeared in print so - far.

3 AN INTERESTING LITTER FROX BROTHX2 COOPER. To the Editor of Thi Advocate, Reformation la a necessity. The peopl realize ir, and its consummation 1b only matter of time. The people are progres give; they are studying political economy and social forma; and the clearer the mind becomes, the better they under stand these problems, the more they will realize the great need for a closer union of all wage workers, and recognize the fact that only by a united and persistent effort can the much needed reform be accomplished. . The great growing gulf between the rich and the poor is a menace to the prln clples of our republican form of govern ment, to our free institutions and to the free exercising of liberty of conscience and liberal expression of sentiment and principles to which all are justly en titled. The two great extremes of wealth and poverty cause one constant ferment and agitation of the public mind. It destroys that peace of mind, of happiness, of se curity and contentment tha...

THE A3DVOCA.T2a 5 CO-OPERATIVE DEPARTMENT in hrn.nf r ii Riuworth. Rnu-rorlse. Kan sas. t whom all communications la regard to Capital has arrived at the advanced stage of combination with all its powers, while labor is still in the fetters of the competitive wage system. How shall it escape? How shall the people throw off the power of organized wealth, and enjoy the blessings of Industrial freedom? Through organized legislation, andco operation. PROHKIOS10N. From the Co-operative News. Wherever capital is concentrated in a few hands, it reacts unfavorably upon the community. The combination of capital into syndi- cates and trusts, for the suppression of competition, while evil in its immediate results, is at the same time a preparation for higher social and industrial condi tions. The one important fact for all students of sociology to bear in mind, is, that competition expresses a certain stage ot human growth, and that the combina tions of capital that In every department of indu...

6 THE .AJDVOOATm THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM. Some time ago the Kelly Axe Co., of Louisville, Kentucky, sent oat a circular to the reform press of the country in which they represented their establishment as practically the only one outside of the great axe com bine, and also represented that their business interests were suffering in conspquer.ee of their refusal to enter with the others into the combination. They desired to pose as martyrs to a disinterested devotion to the people's interests. The sad tale they told ex cite'd the sympathy of the reform press. Many papers published their circular, and a few gave them strong editorial endorsement. Tee Advo cate had received some hints m re gard to this company which led us to lay the circular away, and to reserve our tears until we should learn more about its self imposed martyrdom. . Now in giviDg the facts to the peo ple we have a few words to say by .way of personal explanation. We have no fight to make on the Kelly Axe ...

TH333 imVOOATHl 7- ; Th3 Hon. Tom Watson, of Georgia, has reason to be proud of the endorse ments he is receiving from every part of his state. If it is not as profitable to the pocket, it is more so to the reputation of a mainber of Congress to fairly and honestly represent the wishes of Lis constituents, and Tom Watson is accumulating considerable of this kind of capital that will be useful in coming years. If there is any politics whatever in the war in the Thirty-second judicial district, Republicans will have to shoulder the responsibility of it The facts are that the people, without re gard to party, are in revolt against a judicial libertine and his satellites, and the failure of the corrupt major ity of a Republican Senate to dispose of him in a legal way when it had the opportunity is the cause of Sam Wood's murder, and of all the other lawless acts that have occurred. Politicians are cowards. Tbey complain loudly of the newspapers and yet refuse to go on record for any giv...

THE AJDVOC-A-TEl 9 dollar has been altered la its proportion or quantity, but the pure silver remains the same as ever. But owing to the fact that gold, as now, proved to be too dear a metal for money use, the ratio or value was changed In 1931 from fifteen to six teen ounces of sliver to one ounce of gold; but ltwaa not changed by increas in the weight of pure silver in the stand ard dollar, but by decreasing the quantity of gold in the esgle and half eagle. But It matters not how many silver dollars, or gold dollars were coined, the fact yet remains that In 1873, when demonetized by fraud, at the instigation of John Bull, the sliver dollar was at a premium of four cents over the gold dollar, and had been at even a higher premium than that.

12 THE AJDVOOA.TE. AN IMPORTANT DISCUSSION. (Continued from ninth page.) standard of value, the two metals alterant isg. The grain of truth in the contention of the goldolators that the double standard ia ineffective resides in the fact thatbi metalism does not result in the double standard, but in the alternating standard that prevents both metals from rising above the true money standard at the name time. When silver becomes more valuable than gold, the alternation of the double standard makes gold the standard, and soon. All the financial sense does not lie in the north and east, nor among the money sharks and goldolators. The people know that the only sound, sife and honest currency is that which is the result of the alternating stand ard growing out of bi-metal ism. Mr. W. vill probably regard this a visionary and Impossible. But there is a sure and certain mode of ascertaining whether or not one of the two metals is getting too dear to use as money, viz: Com pare It with the p...
