THE AIDVOOATja 5 THE SILVER QUESTION'. We make a few clippings from the New York Journal of Finance of February 1st, to which we would most respectf aly invite the attention ofthose who pretend to belie ie that our present silver law ia equivalent to a free coinage law and who deny that the law was framed in the sole interest of gamblers: F. M. Lockwood & C. say: The market Is heavy and a good deal of capital Is being made by the bears out of the low price of silver, blgb rates of exchange, the accumulation of money, the financial trouble south and sales of our se curities for European account. It Is possible during the absence of aggressive bhytng to work upon the street seatlment with these unfavor able factors enough to produce considerable re action, but the situation is not bearish, it Is bull Ish ; and although the market may lag for a time, It Is certain to have a very lively advance before many days. The Capital, a few days ago, noted the fact that on a given day silver ...

6 THE iUD VCO-A.Tia HON. A. F. ALLEN AND THE NATION 4L UNION COMPANY. The Advocate is endeavoring to be perfectly fair in the discussion of this very important subject, and therefore is willing to give both sides a hearing so long as a spirit of fa'rnees is ob served. In another place we give Mr. A. F. Allen's second letter,some points in which we wish to notice. In answer to an inquiry in our former criticism he says: You ask In your criticism ot my former article la which direction we are to look for relief to the people to the est&bllshmsnt of these trust or to a change lu our financial system?, I answer unhesitatingly to a change In our financial sys tem. But sir, until a change of our financial system, It becomes necessary to take advantage of other means of relief, should any offer. Belief from what? Mr. Allen an swers "unhesitatingly" that the peo ple are to look for relief from the de pressed condition under which they are now suffering, to a change of our financial syst...

T23DS3 ADVOOATHL 7 Thb free silver advocates In the last Congress declared that If the government would take the product of American silver mines for currency they would guarantee that the price of silver would go to par with gold, or to f 1 2954 an ounce. The government has substantially done so, buy ing as much silver as the American product In 1889, the year before the last silver bill became a a law, and day before yesterday the price of silver fell to 91 cents an ounce, the lowest point It has ever touched. Explanations on the part of free silver champions are now In order. Capital. The man who is able to see any re semblance between the present silver law and free coinage, is a genius. We donbt if another conld be found out side the Capital office. That law simply reduces silver to a commodity in which the bulls and bears gamble as they do in our food products, and this was the design of the great "financier," who gave it birth. It was intended to furnish another means of spec...

8 TU2D ADVOCAT1I DREAMS AND REALITIES. To Fe Editor of The Advocate. "Last night ia meditation wrapt," my mem ry wandered back to the days of my childhood and the "tight little isle" whereon I was born Old England. -Amid other memories that flooded my mind was that of a sombre and stately looking building bearing the sign or legend in bas relief, "Royal Philan thropic Society." And then I thought of the fearful misery and want, wretched ness and despair, existing In the capital city of the world, although surrounded upn all sides with scenes of inconceiva ble opulence and luxurious wealth. And I thought of the grand and noble work being wrought by the members of the Philanthropic Society, who freely give of their substance and time in an effort to alleviate the Bufferings of the poor and smooth the path of poverty stricken hu manity. And then, in dreams of agony, I wondered how long a long suffering God would permit the opulent few to live in luxury and idleness, upon the gains extr...

Since writing the foregoing I have re celved my Kansas Former and find therein an article from Mr. Edwin 8ny der, in which he advocates the National Union plan, and poses as an apologist for trusts, monopolies and combines in gen eraL I take pleasure in clipping from his article first to prove that it is not intended to ever sell goods any cheaper than they are now sold, unless forced to do so by competition.

11 WASHINGTON. TH2C AID VOOA.TS1 HBO ( Continued from third page.) Mr. Watson. The gentleman in his own time can make a statement of his own views, and the facts upon whioh they are based; but if the gentleman mans to say that the corn raisers of Kansas are not in destitute and deplorable condition, and have not been burning their own corn, and reading the rule nisi foreclosing his mort gage by the light of such a fire then he certainly contradicts the very strong testi monyupon which my assertion was founded Mr. Funston. It is not true. Mr. Watson. By men who have seen there fires burning. Mr. Funston. It is not true. Sir, I know that what I have said here to day may be utterly thrown away.

Money, according to the statement of . a friend who has thought much and deeply on the subject of finance, is only a system of keeping accounts. I think we will find thia true. Money is not in itself of any value it cannot feed, clothe or shelter us except as we exchange it for the real articles which are in them selves food, clothing and shelter. It is therefore only a symbol of these things a convenient voucher that the holder Is entitled to draw on the world's store of necessities and comforts to the amount listed in his certificate of credit -(money).

TJErlii! ADVOCATE 13 THE SPEAKERSHIP CONTEST. ( Continued from first page.) our subject. The Economist says: The relation between Congressmen and the supreme council Is one thing aud their relation to their constituencies another, and they may bo depended upon to meet their obligations to each This seems to ua to be a distinction without a difference. The Supreme Council has said to every Alllancemaa 'not to vot for any candidate who does not pledge himself to the St Louis plat form." It occurs to us that this would include Alliancemen elected to Congress Every good, lnyal Alllanceman has con formed to these instructions from the Supreme Council. Have they not a right to expect as much from the men whom they elect to a position to accomplish the purposes of the Alliance? And has not the Supreme Council got the same right to petition these Congressmen as it has to advise its lay-members? Again, what Is the Supreme Council but the repre sentatives of the constituencies of these same C...

I have no leisure for a newspaper con troveray, and have no disposition to en gage in one especially with a newspaper man himself. I write simply In the in terest of the Impending revolution, while I would sustain the action of our business agents in connection with the National Union Company so far as I am acquainted with their actions as calcu lated to give the Alliance a relief of which It stands very much in need. You ask in your criticism of my former article In which direction we are to look for relief to the people to the establish ment of these trusts or to a change in our financial system. I answer unhesi tatingly to a change in our financial sys tem. But, sir, until a change of our financial system, it becomes necessary to take advantage of other means of relief should any offer; neither can we hesitate because the relief does not promise to be general as we wuuld wish it to be.

TIrM3 .ADVOOilTIS. 15 WASN'T IT A XISTAKI? I mean the change of the r&Uroad plank of the Peopled party platform from absolute to alternate government ownership. The agitation of the subject of control has always created antagonism between the employes of railroads and the party leading the agitation, for the reason that It puts a club In the hands of the railway corporation to swing over the heads of their employes in the shape of reduced wages or absolute dismissal. Control of the railroads means continued oppression of the laborer by the cor poration; government ownership means a division of the earnings of the roads between the employe and the user, very much to the benefit of both. The decision in the Counselman case makes the interstate commerce law prac tically inoperative; and It now becomes necessary to find some other solution of this very Important problem. I believe the employes of the roads would be willing, and not only willing but glad, to change the nature of thei...

THE PEOPLE SHOULD CHOOSE THE DELE GATES. To the Editor of ThbAdvocatb. The wladom displayed by our fore fathers In framing the constitution of this grand republic cannot be questioned or over estimated. They sprang from a stock who had been enslaved by the worshippers at the shrine of mammon, and had been taught from their very infancy that it was this slavery that had driven them from their homes to the then unknown wilds of America that they might " enjoy the blessings of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, hence, then is it any won der that in framing that grand document they should make that the foundation upon which the whole superstructure should rest? " But, alas! while we (the people) have pursued our various avocation, content and serenely reposing under the grand old starry flag, su...

TH22 AD VOOilTEl WHIT ABE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT ITT To the Editor of Thb Advocati: I said in my letter of two weeks ago that oar ancestors were worse off than we are, and that the antiquity of the con dition of the laboring classes was im portant in several ways, and was per haps not enough considered by some of us. If, now, one-sixteenth of the popula tion of England and Wales is In receipt of pauper relief, In Lord McCauley's day it was in bad years one-tenth, and in good years one-thirteenth. Gregory King estimated it In his time (1685) at about a fourth, and this estimate, which all our respect for hia authority will scarcely prevent us from calling extrava gant, was pronounced by Davenant emi nently judicious. McCauleygoes on at length to give other evidence of the probable truth of these estimates, for which I must refer you to his pages. Yetfarmer, attention, the average price of wheat during the last twelve years of Charles II. was $1.50 per bushel That this enormous price o...

TECS AJDVOO-A.T2H 3 Hon workers Idle! We are all together in this matter. If such a large propor tion of our labor la idle and hungry, on the other hand, these mortgages mean that a debt larger than that of the whole people at the close of the war, now rests upon much lees than one-half of them. You, yourselves, gentlemen, felicitate each other that, If wages are lower than theyusedto be, the price of bread Is also lower. That is to say, the price of that with which land pays its debts is less. You stand upon a thousand plat forms and congratulate us even us, who owe you money that the cost of bread is so reduced that the mechanic and common laborer can live upon less wages. That is, that the cost of the labor which entiches you, is cut upon a horizontal plain from the engineer and the machinist to the farm laborer and section man. Is that a ,thing to thank God upon? Are we, who owe you debts, which are not easier of payment, to rejoice with you that we are each and all so much easi...

Tl-Uil ADVOOATia 5 thoughts as suggestive rather than as an exhaustive treatise of the subject We have already alluded to the pros perity of Venice under her credit system. We might likewise refer to the condition of the English people during the period of suspension of specie payment and when paper money was poured out in abundance through the Bank of England and flowed freely through all the chan nels of trade. We will also refer to France under the- administration of John Law and the Capital can take np this subject and read us a lecture out of it if it chooses. And do not let us forget our own experience be fore the period of contraction which has brought so many disasters upon us. But aside from these we will intro duce some examples from ancient history. Alexander Del Mar, than whom there is no better authority, has this to say of Sparta in his "History of Money in Ancient Countries," page 163: The difficulty of obtaining sufficient and regu lar supplies of the metals for coin...

c THE -AJDVOO-A-Tm THE PEOPLE MUST RULE. ' It has been customary in the old parties for a few men self consti tuted leaders to fix the elates for all conventions and set np the pins for their candidates for the several offices of county, state and nation. It has been the glorious privilege of the people to vote for the men the bosses have selected. That the People's party has arrived at a point where the same thing may be expected unless carefully guarded against it would be futile to deny. Selfish men who have use for parties only as they can utilize them for personal aggran dizement, and for the accomplish ment of selfish purposes, are common to every political party. The Peo ple's party is no exception to the general rule. In the campaign of 1890 Tub Ad vocate discouraged the naming of candidates for the several state offices and the discussion of their merits prior to the meeting of the state con vention. Good men at that time told us we were pursuing a mistaken policy. We did n...

TX-H2 ' AlDVOOATS 7 OUK MARVELOUS PROSPESITT. We have received since our last issue the court dockets for the Feb ruary term in Norton and Osborne counties. In Norton county there are 118 mortgage foreclosure suits set for trial during; this month, and thirty confirmations of sheriff's sales. In Odborne county there are seventy two confirmations of sheriff's sales, and a large number of foreclosure suits set for trial. As the foreclosure suits are all classed as "civil actions" without other designation of the fore closure suits we are unable to deter mine just how many of them are of that character. There are 142 of these "civil actions," and as loan and trust comp.niet, insurance companies and banks figure as plaintiff's in most of the cases it is to be presumed that most of them are foreclosure suits. From Cherokee and Crawford counties two of the best counties in the state we also have reports of our increasing prosperity. The fol lowing letter speaks for itself: Editor Advcatb:...
