The Republican State convention to elect delegates to the St. Lonis con ventlon met at Hutchinson March 10. It was called to order by Chairman Leland, and after prayer by Rev. Sage, a colored clergyman of Ottawa, ex Chief Justice Horton was elected Tem porary Chairman. Chairman Horton referred in his speech in glowing termn to the Republican party as the party of principle and progress, apparently ignorant of the fact that the conven tion representing the party had no principles and was waiting for the na tional convention to state their princi pies for them. Speeches were made by George T. Anthony and Senator Gor don of Wichita. The committees were then announced. George T. Anthony was made...

JSCS, ADv-OQATa. 0 The remedy for its evil effects in the lat ter form does not lie in changing quan tity or quality of money, but in cutting off the -privilege of Investing in social values, which are a taxing power, by tak ing euch values for use of all the people who aid in producing them in lieu of all other forms of taxation. Experience proves beyond question the truth of the theory that volume of money determines prices. The apparent excep tions to this rule are the result of some articles being found or produced in larger quantity or at less cost, but the things of which the supply and demand remain normal do fluctuate in price with money supply, prices rising with more money available for use and falling as money becomes scarcer. Land is less subject to this law than commodities be cause it has tides of its own which may not coincide with the tide of money, but both tides affect and react on each other. Contraction wrongs debtors and ex pansion injures creditors, hence equal...

1896. 5 THfl: ADVOOATB, A LESSON FROM KENTUC&Y. Each succeeding year brings forth additional argument in favor of elect ing United States Senators by popular vote instead of through State Legisla tures. For ten years scarcely a winter has passed without witnessing one or more deadlocks in Legislatures over the election of a Senator. The trouble has increased with the growth of new parties, until it is quite a common thing to see three parties represented in a Iieglslalure, and no one of thftn having a majority. In such a case a deadlock is almost an inevitable result. Bepublicans and Democrats will engage in a scramble for the offices in sight, and there is nothing for the representa tives of the third party to do but aban don their principles or submit to a deadlock. They usually choose the latter rather than help elect the corrupt politicians. The disgraceful performance which has been on in Kentucky's capital for more than a month is a case in point. In addition to the disgra...

THE ADVOCATE. Yields of Cora and KaSlr Corn Compared. By F. D. Coburn, Secretary Kansas Department of Agriculture. As the sorghums, more especially the non-saccharine sorts, are attracting wide attention now, the (act tbat Kan sas is having a larger experience with them than any other State (232,493 acres in 1895, and likely to to doubled in 1896), brings innumerable requests from all points of the compass for in formation as to their characteristics, growth, uses and values compared with those of other crops raised for similar purposes. The foremost of these non-eaccha rine sorghums in popular esteem ap pear to be the red and white Kaffir corn. For seven years, beginning with 1889, the Kansas Experiment station, at Manhattan, has grown Indian corn and red Kaffir corn side by side for the purpose of testing their comparative yields of both fodder and grain. The following table, compiled by Mr. F. C. Burtis, of the station, who has had an oversight of the work, shows the an nual yiel...

The Iowa Republican convention to elect delegates to the St. Louis conven tlon was little more thin an enthuai astic boom meeting for Allison. The delegates elected were all instructed for him without any opposition of any kind. A long address was issued in which it was set forth that Iowa Re publicans desired to present to the na tional convention the name of Senator Allison for the Fres'dency, not as a matter of State pride nor personal compliment, but because of the belief that he is conspicuously fitted for the position and that they were f ul filling a duty to the party and to the nation. His public service is referred to in part as follows: "For thirty-one years he has had a molding hand in all the important laws upon the nation's etat ute books.

isca TH S3 ADVO O iLT EL HINT FROM MARYLAND. Haw the Residents of the Town of Dar lington Secured Good Roads. Amonjr the numerous small towns in Ilarford county, Md., is the village of Darlington, a place of about 200 peo ple, located in the northeastern part of the county. The roads in the imme diate vicinity of Darlington were prob ably the worst in the county. Its near est railroad station is four miles away, and this made its citizens feel all the more keenly the need of better roads. Urged on by this constant and growing evil, a few of the leading citizens issued a public call for a meeting. This was in the fall of 1887. About 50 men re sponded. After some discussion the following resolution was adopted at the meeting: "We, the undersigned citizens of Har ford county, Md., realizing the impor tance of taking some more active meas ures looking to the improvement of our public highways in and around the town of Darlington, call upon our fel low citizens to join us in forming an f...

ADVOOATH i - ' 15 BERRIES FOR MARKET. Ordinary Farm Methods Are Xniviflcleat for Fruit Growers. Berries cannot be grown and mar keted 9A easily as wheat, corn and po tatoes. Berry growing, like market gurdi&lny, requires the greatest con centration of good soil, labor and thought. Too much land is the bane of most fruit growing as well as farm lag. Success would be more certain if acreage were divided and fertility, preparation and cultivation increased. Intensified farming and concentration of energy are the diamond drills that bore out success. Take counsel from books, papers and practical growers, but let it be tempered with your own beet judgment and experience. Actual knowledge and practical experience should go hand in hand.

A THE CONSTITUTION. An Argument Against tUfl Coavealnl of A Constitutional Convention BY B. C. CSANSTON, ABILENE, HAS. With the paramount issues which are before the people to-day, it would seem unwise to attract their attention to a discussion as to the advlaabillty of a convention to frame a new constitu tion. If the present constitution is in any way the cause of the present depres sion felt on every hand, then the people might be iuatiitad in demanding a con stitutional convention. The reason given by many demand ing a revision of the constitution is that we have outgrown the old; that the State, from a population of a few thousands in 1859, has reached the numbers of an empire; that Kansas, havicg developed her resources and become a powerful State, rich in every thing necessary to make a great com monwealth, should now, if not discard, remodel and revise the fundamental principles of government inculcated into our organic law under which we have reached the position among the ...

ttbcre they have become tired of bonds, either for public or private purposes, a statutory enactment will remove their power to burden themselves, as it ia only by etatute that they are permitted thus to burden themselves. We prate of our rights and liberty, and yet are ready to surrender them because we feel oppressed and burdened from our misguided judgment in the use of these liberties. Shall we now go to the other extreme and surrender rights which make the State guardian of our actions and our property? The State owes no duty but the protection of the subject in liberties not surrendered. Our laws recognize the interest of hus band and wife in the home as equal, and a joint consent must be given for Its alienation. Are we ready to say that by their joint consent they may not do what they please with it? Would not a provision of this kind have a greater tendency to prevent the acquiring of homes ? If the people are ready for this change, however, a brief amendment to the constit...
