THE A33VOO ATIE 13 THE PEOPLE'S PABTY IN WALLAC2 COUNTY. To the Editor of Thk advocatb. I thought 1 would writ a little for your, paper, aa I am a member of the Farmers' Alliance and advocate their principles from beginning to end. have been a member of this order for some four months, and will say for one that I am deeply interested In the great work which we have before us. We know that in the campaign of 1893 we have a hard fight before us; now let every one of us be up and doing while we have a chance to do some good for our country and the laboring classes. I will now Bay that In Wallace county, Kansas, we are accomplishing one of the greatest works in the known world for the laboring class of people. We now have a thorough set of Alliance men in office in this county excepting one, and that office is hardly worth wanting; yet we as Alliance brothers and slaters have fought our way out of the hands of that class of people that has been stealing our money daily which we worked h...

TTim ADVOOATffi 14 COilETHLNO 120UT TUX 8T15SiS OIL COMPANY. To the Editor of Th Avooat i We wish to congratulste yon on your eipose of the National Union Company. When its supporters compare it to the Standard Oil Company it is time to In vestigate the workings of the concern. We know bat very little about the Na tional Union Company; but we do know Bomathlng about the Standard Oil Com pany. While you were conversant and familiar with the workings at the oil wells, we lived at Cleveland, and know something about the management of the greatest monopoly on the face of the globe. The originator of the Standard Oil Company was J. D. Rockefeller. It was organized about the year 1865, with J. D. Rockefeller, Samuel Andrews, M. B. Clark and James Clark, with a very small capital, not to exceed $3,000. The two Clarks withdrew in a short time, and the company was known as Rocke feller & Andrews. A year or two later Mr. Flagler was taken in, and it became the Standard Oil Company. Mr. An...

Of all th questions agitated the financial queation reoelvea the most determined opposition. NswYoBX,Feb.5.-E. O. Dan A Cc's Weekly Review of Trade will say: In spite of much dullness and complaint in some important branches, trade la grad ually enlarging. In financial and speculative circles, net- thelees, some apprehension appears because of the advance in foreign exobanga from $4 88 to $4 87, in spite of the enormous mer chandise balances in fator of this country. It is argued that this shows a very heavy withdrawal of foreign capital from tha country, because silver legislation is feared, or for some other reason, and that in elect Europe will pay for the breadstuffs and cot ton needed brsurrendering titles to Amer ican property. If so, this oountry can fair 'y well afford to own itself. It seems by thla report foreign capital is being exchanged for the...

Devoted to the Interests of the Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union and Other Kindred Organizations. VOL. III. NO. 28. TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2, 1892. TDK OWNERSHIP OF AMERICAN HOME8. Ia the Cleveland Press Henry George, jr., has an interesting and valuable arti cle, based upon the census statistics, re garding the ownership of homes and farms in the United States. He says: "With a view of getting some light upon this most important matter, the Single Tax Club, of 8t Louis, two years ago drew up a petition to the superin tendent of the eleventh census to collect data to show what percentage of the peo ple own their own homes and farm, what proportion are tenants; of those who occupy their own homes and farms, what proportion have their property free from debt; and, of the homes and farms which are under mortgage, what per centage of the value Is so mortgaged? "This petition was adopted not only by all the single tax clubs throughout the United States, but by all the Kni...

TJhLffl ADVOOA.T2C WHAT WI MIGHT DO AB01T IT. SCo the Editor of Ths Advocats. In Thb Advocau of February 21th, It was laid editorially that these articles were written from a Republican stand point. That is, in a sense, true; and yet I should be false to the Republican party, to myself, and to my audience, If it were allowed to pass without comment. What has been or may be written by me is from a standpoint on the extreme verge of such progressive work aa the grand nld mrtv haa done: but it ia written with my face toward the people and toward the future, and I am afraid, with my back turned on the party of which I have been proud for half a life time. If the Re publican party can advance to new and nobler conquests over poverty and wrong, then I am Btlll, as I would love to be, a Republican; but, if not, then the people make parties and not parties the people, and your humble servant Is one of the people. These letterr are written from the standpoint of a man who has been hungry, wi...

6 ' THE ADVOOATEl MONET. In Expression of Sovereign Power and th Medium by Which this Power la Ixercised in the Production and Distribution of Wealth. The oft repeated expression that "money always has ruled and always will role," contains a troth which many have been loth to admit Mon ey is an expression of sovereign pow er and is the medinm by which this power is exercised in all the affairs of life. In this country, it is supposed to express, and really does exercise the sovereign power of the whole people. By law and custom it is made the medinm by which all the necessaries, comforts and lnxnries of life are distributed. Hence money being an expression of the law, roles in the affairs of life by the authority of the sovereign power. If gold is money, then gold exercises this sovereign power, and whoever controls gold has the power to draw unto himself the wealth cre ated by others, and to dictate to them just how much of the products of their labor they shall be permitted to ret...

7 STJPfLT AND DEMAND. The less use we hare for an article, the less will be the demand for it and the less the demand, the less will be its market value. This principle is universal in its application in regard to commodities, but it is none the less applicable to money, in which all market values are expressed When money is abundant the products which it is used to exchange, bear a higher price than when money is scarce. Even monopoly papers and politicians will admit that an increase in the volume of money will corres pondingly increase the selling ; price of products, and in this admissioa they concede every principle upon which the present demand for fin an - cial reform is based. Every dollar that is taken from the circulating medium reduces the sell ing price of commodities, while every dollar added will increase prices. The more dollars in circulation the less they will purchase and vice versa. Hence every dollar of any kind that is taken from or added to the num ber of dolla...

8 Politicians of both of the old parties Are between the devil and the deep sea upon the silver question. If they go in for free coinage they lose the Wall street boodle, which is their most powerful argument in political campaigns; and if they go against it they array the masses of the south and west solidly against them. In either case they are bound to coma to grief. Tn Int'rtor Herald ot las' week contained a half column article und r the caption of ''Advice to Young Men." Alliance Gazette. The Interior Herald is Fletcher Meredith's paper. The Gazette does not state what advice he gives to young men. Does he advise them to forge libels upon respectable bodies of men and publish them to the world as facts? Or does he advise them to pass the night with strange women at hotels within a few miles of their own home? What kind of advice is he giv ing to the rising generation? The next president of the United States will be named at Omaha. This statement will be denounced as bun combe ...

TXHZ2 A2DVOOAT3& 0 and personal property held for use and not for profit I shall essay, as briefly aa possible, to Indicate my reason for believing that a monetary nyetem that would Issue money direct to the people, at the cost of Issue, would bring about nationalistic results under an individualistic regime. It may be well to remark at the outset that the great majority of the rank and file of the People's party advocate national owner ship and operation of all lines of trans portation and communication and the municipalization of all "natural monop alies" in the cl'ies and towns. Briefly epitomized, nationalism pro poses that all men shall work, to the best of their ability, and be rewarded accord ing to their needs. Nationalism proposes that all men must work in order to eat, and that all who thus work shall receive the results of their lab or, less the labor cost of distribution. What factors, un der the present system, enable men to live in idleness and yet - absorb a goodl...

We meet In the midst of a nation brought to the verge of moral, political and material ruin. Cor ruption dominates the ballot box, the legislatures, the Congress, and touches even the ermine of the bench. The peo ple are demoralized. Many of the states have been compelled to Isolate the voters at the polling places in order to prevent universal Intimidation or bribery.
