2 TMI3 AJDVOOilTIH MONEY WHAT IS ITT-IT3 USES AND " ABUSES. CHAPTER III. To the Editor of The Advocate. The centralization of money is con demned, and very justly, too; therefore any methods or manipulation of money that lead In that direction are in them selves wrong,and should not be tolerated, much lesa encouraged; but the abuses of before named remove all restraint In that direction, and give avarice unbridled liberty; it enables the owners of this stuff called money to levy tax upon the people for Its use; to diminish its quan tity at will, thereby Increasing the de mand for its use, and enabling them to at once extort heavier toll for the use of this stuff and diminish the ability to pay. Thus with a double hand they sweep Into their grasp all forma of wealth. The most cunningly devised and sub tile abuse practiced and made possible by the above named abuse of money is the interest or usury system; It is not worth while to describe it; we all know too well what Its power for e...

THE OLD AND THE NEW. To the Editor of Thb Advoc at : Political and ecclesiastical establish ments grow old, and by natural law tend to decline and decay. Partlzans and sectaries always preach the immortality of their peculiar party or church forms. The history of the world's reformations furnish no Instance of reform accom pllshed within the precincts of the old. Hugh Miller, in hla "Testimony of the Rooks," found proof of new creations at the end of each of his geologic days in accord "with the genesis of earth, of which It is recorded: "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth God said, let there be light, and there was light, and the evening and the morning were the first day.'' No devel opment of the old Into the new, but the old dies, and from its life germ springs a new organism. "Except a corn of wheat fall Into the ground and die It abldeth alone." A thousand years ripened the old world Into Its harvest of iniquity, and the deluge covered it out of sight Noah b...

T2-H33 AlDVOOilTn 5 at this time as to desire to invest such an immense amount of capital in the interest of its members; for, bear in mind, the advocates of the scheme say to us that is designed to build up and strengthen the Alliance, because only members of the order will be en titled to that wonderful rebate on purchases. How these New York millionaires do love the Alliance all at once. Can you think of any pur pose they can have in view? We can. They desire to swallow the order and get it out of the way. They undoubt edly think this will be be easier and cheaper than to defeat it in a square fight at the polls. This is another of the purposes of the company ffhich, as Mr. Snyder says, is 'but poorly understood by the people," and it is one with which he, being a Bepubli can Alliance man, is probably In hearty sympathy.

TX-Z23 AJ3VOOA.T2H 7 FXOM ONE 0? THE DISFRANCHISED. To the Editor of The Advocate: I have been greatly Interested in read lug the communications published In The Advocate from different writers, giving advice In reference to the pros pective platform of the People's party, to be adopted by the convention at St Louis In February. I belong to the dis franchised sex, but am watching with deep Interest the workings of the Peo ple's party. We working women of the land are looking for the People's party to give us the rights the old parties have bo constantly Ignored. The Republican party has tried to lay the sin of their de linquency at our door by charging us with disinterestedness that if women wanted more rights they would ask for them. Mr. In galls said that "if women wanted to vote, the right would be granted to them in twenty four hours by the watch." To prevent the People's party from hav ing similar conscientious scruples, it will be well to hear from we women. I am personally ac...

THE ABVOOA.TH1 9 Royal Baking Powder Is Superior to Every Other. It is a scientific fact that the Royal Baking Powder is absolutely pure. ... I will go still further and state that because of the facilities that company have for obtaining perfectly pure cream of tartar, and for other reasons dependent upon the proper proportions of the same, and the method of its preparation, the Royal Baking Powder is undoubtedly the purest and most reliable baking powder offered to the public. HENRY A. MOTT, Ph. D., Late Chemist U. S. Govt, are the "coming men" in that state. As ha& been demonstrated many times before in this Alliance' move ment, the people recognize no leaders unless they lead in" the right direc tion, and Mr. Livingston is likely to realize this fact the first time that Georgia Alliance men have an oppor tunity to express themselves. He is only another example, of the trnth that an Alliance Democrat is only a Democrat after all The people are fast learning that in order to g...

To the Editor of Thb Advocat: Allow me to thank you sincerely for writing that open letter to the press committee of the Kansas State Temper ance Unlon.and to endorse It most heart ily. It states the position of our so-called prohibitionists and temperance advocates so truthfully as to leave no room for ad dltional facts to show the hypocrisy of the persons referred to. Your position on the liquor question will do very well for ' the People's party until they have the opportunity of adopting the Ohio plan or something better. I hope you will publish a protest against Congress loaning or giving any more money to the Columbian exposition as It goes into the pockets of a few high-toned aristocrats, at the expense of tax payers, a great majority of whom will never be able to even visit the fair. As the scheme is paid for by public money mainly, I would suggest a thorough ex hlbit of the social and financial condi tlons of ...

14 THUS -AJDVOOA.THL FRO'J LARXZD. To th Editor of Thb Advocate. To ma the political outlook In this country Is truly alarming. For twenty five years or more the two leading politl cal parties have seemingly been very earnest and sincere In their advocacy of certain economic views that were the very opposites of each other. And I have no reason to doubt the sincerity of the masses at least of these two parties. The present political conditions in our country all intelligent persons acknowl edge to be exceedingly bad, not to say dangerous. But what Is the present attitude of our representatives In Congress? So long as the leaders of political parties give evidence of having the courage of their convictions so long as they are found manfully contending for what they regard as the rights of their constituents, however much these leaders may differ from each other, we should not wonder that their respective political following sit home would stand by them. But now w are confronted with ...

TH22 ADVOOA.T2a 3 confine ourselves as nearly aa possible to the substitute that we haTe offered, and which -was read by the clerk of thin House on Monday, and will be found printed upon pages 563 and 5G4 of the Congressional Record of yesterday. In doing so, sir, we propose to state plainly and clearly the propositions involved in it, which are three: 1. The creation of a new committee upon the order of business in this House; 2. The election of the standing commit tees by the House itself; and 3. (What may be considered a corollary of the second:) The election by the com mittees themselves of their own chairmen and the naming of their own clerks. This is what the substitute proposes, and this is what we believe is right. We do not propose to discuss this question in all its bearings, but simply as it relates to the principle of popular rights, or the principle of rule by the many as opposed to domina tion by the few. The first proposition takes the place to a certain extent of the...
