T3HHD XDVXDOjtIlTIB. TEE FOUBTH C0N6SK8SI0NAL DISTRICT REPUBLICAN CONVKXTION. This body which assembled at Emporia on the 27th of March re nominated Charley Curtis aa its can didate for congress, aa had been pre viously arranged. The convention only ratified the action of the poli ticians. This, however, is a matter of little conseqnence. It is of the platform that we wish to spe This is of the regulation republican type. It has the customary condem nation of opposing parties which everybody, of course knows is only buncomb, and which requires no at tention whatever; and it has a few declarations of what are pretended to be republican principles. These are hypocritical and deceptive upon their face. The money plank is pur posely so worded as to be ambigu ous and meaningless. It maybe in terpreted by republican speakers and politicians to mean anything or nothing as circumstances may re quire. Here it is : We favor honest money; gold, silver and paper maintained at equal value. Who w...

6 THE ADVOCATE THE WOELD DO MOVE. In striking contrast with the par tisan bigotry of the Kansas and Mis souri press is the course of the Chicago Times in proposing to not only throw open its columns to the discussion of all social reform theories, from the single tax to anar chism, bat to take an editorial hand in the discussion. Even some Popu list papers might take a lesson in toleration from this democratic or gan. The light is breaking, and all the people need is light. Hre is the Chioigo Times editorial in the issue of March 25 annonncing the policy of that paper, and elsewhere will be fonnd one of the articles already contributed: Upon another page of to-day's Times will be found two columns of matter bearing upon the single tax and prepared under the auspioes of the Chioago Single Tax olub. This department will appear in the Times every Sunday until further notice. The single-tax propaganda has reached the degree of importance which merits reo ognition by the press and the pe...

7 T&KE FOB EXAMPLE The Taxation Laws of Some Other Govern ments. Editor Advocate In the Advo cate of March 7 Mr. T.F. Sproul of Frankfort, Kas., offers some objections to the single-tax, which deserves notice and reply. Iam going to commence with the last portion of his article first and discuss the subject of a graduated land tax. Single-taxers are divided into two bodies known as unlimited and limited. The unlimited single-taxer is one who, believing in common property in land, or in the equal rights of all men to the use of natural opportunities for producing wealth, advocates the tax ing of land values to the full extent of the rental value as the means of recog nizing this common right. The limited single-taxer is one who not advocating the single-tax from the theory of com mon property in land, does advocate the raising of all public revenues from the taxation of land values alone, be cause of its convenience, because of its justice, because of the feasibility of getting a...

0 THE PJSaJE ABMI.- Continued from page 1. his pay in money of that color and kind for his service during that other fright ful war. If democracy and republican ism wish to perpetuate themselves, they would do well to press congress to the point of passage of the Coxey bills, for then men would not struggle to build up a new party after they had learned that they might promote the general welfare and secure justice through the "direct legislation" method. Populists will withhold their sanction of Mr. Coxey's march to Washington be cause they deem it hopeless to attempt to irfluence congress, for the further and graver reason that they fear that unscrupulous capitalism will create a pretext to assault the Coxey troops and they kaow that the condition of the millions of unemployed is such that but a spark is needed to kindle a great fi -e. It was for this latter reason that I strove to disuade Mr. Coxey. I dread with all the physical cowardice of a woman, who is na moral coward, but w...

10 THE! ADVOOATB. IT IS COMING. Natioualism is the H'ghest Plane of Co-op. eration. Editor Advocate: It ia only a ques tion of time when nationalism will nec essarily come through the .evolution of civilization. It is a system for organ izing all mankind into an industrial army, each working for all and all for each. It substitutes a co-operative sys tem of industry for a competitive one. It solves the vexed questions of finance, land and transportation, that are being discussed at the present time. It is a progressive form of socialism. We are at the present time enjoying so cialism to a limited extent. Our gov ernment is founded on socialistic prin ciples, deriving its just powers from the consent of the governed; our postal and public school systems are socialistic, our churches, seoret societies, and all other organizations are socialistic in nature, and the same can be said of the family, which is the natural unit of human so ciety. Co-operation ia essential for the success and...

Threats are made by. the authorities that Coxey and his officers will be prosecuted severely under an old law which forbids anyone bringing des titute people into the district.

Twice of late he had been guilty of preaching the gospel which Christ preached a dereliction which few orthodox churches to-day are willing to condone.

THE ADVOCATE, 3: echo of the Sermon on the Mount. Who will deny that these utterances freed the slaves on British and on American soil and emancipated the Russian serfs? The literature of every social reform movement to-day is permeated with the spirit of these teachings attributed to the Nazarene. Wherever these teachings have gone society as been humanized and the spirit of democracy stirs, and modern progress is not found where these teachings have not gone. Th9y have amply verified the prophetic declaration: "I came to cast tire on the earth" "I came not to send peace, but a sword." If I have spoken truly so far, then these utterances are of the gravest im- portance to every one, no matter what may be his views as to the dogmas of the church, and why, then, shall we continue to conceal these teachings by our quarrels over their authorship? These teachings are true or false in themselves, no matter who uttered them. Truth cannot be more than truth though uttered by a God; nor les...

THE! ADVOCATE 5 should be no drones in society. There should be no inequality m human opportunities. Work should be so distributed that each should do his share and receive the reward of his labor. Work enough should be done to supply the demand of the whole people for every comfort and luxury of life; and the time not re quired for such production should be devoted to rest, to mental culture, to social intercourse and recreation. Un der such a system life would be worth the living. Cruelty and oppression would be done away with. Misery and want would disappear, and hu man brotherhood wo old be estab lished in the earth. The Capital will say the attainment of such a condition is a Utopian dream. It would be if all should follow the example of the Capital, and u?e their utmost endeavors to block the car of human progress, and, if possible, prevent its attain ment. The Capital's insane idolatry for party and for our existing "mod ern conditions" renders it incom petent to aid in effec...

(1) Did not the purchase of silver bullion by the government under the Sherman lav with silver certificates do a good thing in creating a paper circulating medium in stead of a metal one? (2) Did not the Sherman law provide that said certificates oould be redeemed in either metal giber or gold at the discretion of the treasurer? (3) If on presentation for redemption by the holder the treasurer had lawfully a free choice to redeem in silver if he wished so to do, why did or doea the redemption of sil Ter certificates necessarily take gold to do it?

a THE ADVOCATE. CONCERNING KANSAS. NOTES. The Greely Graphic is no longer a re publican paper. It has seen the error of its ways, and is now a Populist. The governor, his private secretary, and the bank commissioner are witnesses in the Smith libel suit at Kansas City. Warden Chase's penitentiary report for March shows expenditures for the month to be $10,574 and receipts $7,301. The coal sales amounted to $5,343. For the first time in its history the city of Larned has divided its offices about evenly between che republicans and Populists. Heretofore republicans have run the city. Since there has been a political fight begun against the Kansas Mutual Life insurance company, President Davis haa requested the superintendent of insur ance to make an examination of the com pany's standing, and it is being done. Jacob Stotler, the veteran editor who began his newspaper career in this state as a partner with Senator Plumb, has become disgusted with Kansas politics and quit the state. lie...
