THE! A3DVOOA.TE1 13 Average per cent Increase In pur chasing value of gold, 31.35 per cent Average per cent Increase In pur chasing power of silver bullion at Its commodity value, 16.29 per cent These figures prove conclusively that not over-production of cotton but under-production of gold has caused the steady rise In the value of the gold dollar, com monly termed a fall In the price of com modities. But it may be very pertinently asked if the value of the Bilver dollar is not also steadily appreciatlng,and whether It Is certain that the free coinage of sil ver would afford us anything like an ade quate measure of relief. It must not be forgotten that debased and demonetized as silver has been since 1873, yet the purchasing power or ex changeable value of silver bullion, while depreciating when considered in its rela tion or ratio to gold, has nevertheless steadily increased when considered in it relation to cotton, wheat and other com modities, so much so as to cause an average d...

To the Editor of Thk advocati: In the last Issue of Ths Advocate, Brother Coon' communication seems to imply that th swap Is already perfected between the People's party and the Re publican Aid Society of this county, There have been several communica tions published In different papers from Mr. Coone on this subject, and he has had as many In reply; and your corres pondent, In all his outs, has found but one man who endorses the gentleman's course, and he has been a Democrat On his fighting league proposal, he seems to give himself the credit of carry ing the whole People's party, and gen erous, magnanimous man as he really is gives the editor of the Democratic paper in this county the credit of holding the Democracy in his vest pocket In their own minds they have the trade made, but let the brethren who read The Ad vocate have no fears.

TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 1892. $1.00 PER YEAR. BRENNAN A FREE MAN. Pat Coney's prophecy that Sam Wood would be murdered and that bis mur derer would not be punished for his crime has been literally fulfilled. Owing to the impossibility of procuring a jury in the county where the crime was com mitted, the attorney general has entered anoKs In the case and the prisoner has been dismissed. The reason assigned for this course is that, had the case been again called and a jury not secured, the prisoner would be entitled to a discharge under the statute which would have operated as an acquittal. The course pursued by the attorney general leaves Brennan subject to rearrest if the condi tions are ever such that he can be tried. At present Brennan is a free man. The law is powerless to punish this cold blooded aasasouir The Kansas Democr...

THE AJDVOOilTsa 5. THE CAPITAL'S MORTGAGE REPORTS. The Capital takes exception to our criticism of its mortgage reports. It says: As to the registers of deeds It Is an outrage to Insinuate dishonesty against these obliging offi cials. The Advocate has not made any insinuation of the kind. We have said very distinctiy that we believed the dishonesty to be in the Capital office; and we have frequently dem onstrated this dishonesty. In our own county, during the campaign of 1890, the Capital claimed to have made an examination of the records at the court house, and published the state ment, as a result of that examination, that there had been but two foreclos ures in the county during the pre vious six months. We made and published a transcript from the court docket of over two hundred during that time. We have also followed its monthly mortgage reports in several instances with sworn statements from different counties, showing the utter falsehood of its reports. What we say is this: T...

6 TH2 " BILLION DOLLAR" SUNDI3. The ablest refutation yet made In Congress of the Democratic slander against the"blUlon dollar Congress" and President Harrison's administra tion, Is contained In Mr. Henderson's reply to Mr. Dockery, published In the Congressional Record of January 15. Mr. Dockery said: The condition of the treasury. Mr. 8peaker, may be briefly summarized in the statem-nt that tne avaiiaoie surplus is now nut a-a,,H2.K. Mr. Henderson showed from the treasury statement for the first of this month available funds In the treasury amounting to $16287,- 599 n.-Cavltal. Mr. Henderson's "refutation" and the Capital's comments demonstrate the insincerity and mendacity of both. Mr. Henderson's exact language is as follows: The gentleman from Missouri (Mr. Dockery) says: The statement of the secretary of the treasury shows the net cash balance In the treasury January i, ikw, w oe h 074,12a jo.

TlHIi AID VOO ATB 7 THE NATIONAL UNION COMPANY. To Whom Do the Indications Point as Being Influenced by Mercenary Motives? We are credibly informed that Mr. Edwin Snyder, in his addresses to county Alliance?, is making the state ment that the reason why the reform press is opposing the National Union Company is because it has refused to "put up" to the reform press. The statement is absolutely false, and no man better knows it to be false than Mr. Snyder. In its opposition to the National Union Company the reform press is not only consistent with its past record, but it is likewise consist ent with all the past teachings of the Alliance itself, which exists to-day as an organized protest against trusts and combines in all departments of trade. Furthermore, we have good reasons to believe that if our influence upon this question was a marketable commodity it would not be necessary to advertise for a purchaser. We speak advisedly upon this subject. In all we have said upon the sub jec...

I am a life-long Republican, myself, and the party bearing that name having entered the world almost in the eame year; I have grown up with its growth, have been proud of ltd honors, sorrowful for ita defeats, and ever hopeful that its teachers would for many yean walk with the leaders of the people toward new victories and higher and freer life for us all. I am not Ignorant, being a laboring man since the breath of manhood has come upon me, of the bitter wrongs suf fered by "the people" of every race. I am not blind to the light which shines over a brighter day, which we " all hope for, and for the coming of which we all ought to work. I am reluctantly forced to the conclusion that we, the sov ereign people, must teach those who ought to teach us. I am willing to fol low the guidance, or march by the side of the man of true progressive spirit. So are tens of thousands of Republicans, and I think as many ...

We are both of U3 afraid of paternalism, and we needn't say any thing more about it just at present. We, the people, are not calamity howl ers. We have been thinking about these things for many years, while our ser vants at Washington, and before that at London, and before that at Rome, and long before that at older places, were talking about matters of less importance. We don't speak out loud often not per haps more than once in a century. As a consequence, for many hundred years we were merely told to shut our mouths. For some of these latter centuries we haye been told that we should not make so much noise because we were better off than we used to be. Our opponents are fully prepared with that handfull of earth to stop our mouths to-day. Lord McCauley administered it very gracefully In his ...

12? THIS iiDVOOATIE. WHEAT GROWIXG. paper read before tbe State Board of Agricul ture at Us recent8cssljn,by A. P. Collins of 8Haa. In presenting to the public a view on any subject it is important to know the position from which the view is taken. Such a shading upon this subject would be important If an article was to be used as an emigration document, to In duce men to come to the state without regard to the consequences of such a move, nothing would be acceptable, save that which set in view every advantage in glowing colors and kept in the back ground every disadvantage. Thia will suffice to give my meaning. The relation of our state to the agricultural world, and the duty this board owes to the ag ricultural classes of the state, forbid that any member of this board, on an occa sion like this, should represent in an un fair coloring so great an industry as wheat growing. Our people are not raising wheat for the purpose of induc ing some one to purchase their lands. As ja gener...

14 TT123 -AJDVOOA.T223. 80X2 C0tt?aM80NS. To the Editor of Thx Aoroolxa. I would like to know what the Ameri can people would think of a government that every few yean would change all of our weight! and measures to suit a certain clasa of commercial men to that they could make more money out of the producer. When they wanted to buy make the yard stick longer, the foot rule longer, the bushel basket bigger, the ton of hay weigh more, an acre of land bigger, and everything else weighed or measured; and when they got ready to sell, then reduce all these measures be low the standard. I want to know what we would think of such lawmakers that would do those things. Now I want to know If our law makers have not been doing this same thing in making our money laws for the last twenty-five years and is not one Just as reasonable as the other? I think If they would commit the first offense . we would send them home very quickly. Now why don't we do so In the other case f It Is plain to me tha...

What has the third party got to do be- fore it can help the people? I reply. It must carry the elections of 1802. How can this be done? By securing enough votes from thoae who would otherwise vote against us to put the new party In power. Now the only way I know of to do this is to make a platform that suits them better than those of the old parties. Let us have a platform so short that everybody can understand it. Remember that the only use ever made of a party platform is to combine enough votes to get the party into power. We want to undo a large part of the vicious legislation of the past thirty years, and it can only be done by putting a new party in power, for the parties that passed the acta of which we complain are satisfied with them, consequently will never repeal them.
