THE ADVOCATE. 5 AN UNGRATEFUL POLITICIAN. The action of Chairman Cyrus Leland in throwing Morrill overboard when it seems that that gentleman needs friends bo badly is an act of extreme ingrati tude. No one who understands the situation can fail to be impressed with the idea that had Morrill paid no atten tion to the imperious boss he would have been a much more popular man. Many of Morrill's worst breaks were made largely through the influence of Leland. The ambitious executive thought to retain the friendship and support of the disreputable leader by acquiescing in his demands. Leland, with his usual degree of innate politi cal depravity, worked the administra tion for everything that might be made to benefit him and his ambitious schemes, and then deserted it. It was through Leland's influence that Morrill urged the Legislature to make an extravagant appropriation for the useless Board of Public Works after he had recommended that the board be abolished. It. was through Leland's ...

THE ADVOCATE. April 29, THE REMEDY. The Power to Contract the Currency Mast be Taken From the Money Trust. The following is the concluding chapter of the "Condition of the Amer lean Farmer," by Hon. II. K. Tau beneck, Chairman of the People's party National committee: "The American farmer cannot con tinue much longer to sell his products below the cost of production, or to live on an income below that provided for paupers, or on earnings less than the wages paid for convicts in our State prisons. To seek a remedy for the conditions which are destroying the yeomanry of our republic is the im perative duty of the hour. The remedy must not be a temporary ex pedient that will strike at the effect only, but a radical one that will re move the cause. Ninety per cent, of the depreciation in the price of farm products is due to the increased pur chasing power of the dollar. To rem edy this we must have free coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. This will place the American farmer on eq...

THE ADVOCATE. 1896. APPLE KING OF KANSAS. How Judge Wellhouse Flants Mis Mammoth Apple Orchard. Secretary Coburn of the Kansas Board of Agriculture contributes the follow ing on an interesting subject: "Judge Fred Wellhouse of Leaven worth county, Kansas, is reputed the most extensive and probably the most successful individual apple-grower in the United States, and is known far and wide as the 'Apple King.'

isca 9 THE ADVOCATE, Louisiana waa beaten. That is right. Whenever and wherever the Republi cans stultify themselves by a combina tion with Populism, they ought to be beaten. Even Democracy is to bo pre ferred to each an unholy alliance." The following report has been made to Secretary Coburn of the Board of Agriculture by a western Kansas cor respondent: "The ground is saturated to a depth of three feet. There is enough moisture to carry the wheat into the head. In addition to the wheat crop I desire to state that all other crops are in a flourishing condi tion. Alfalfa is growing more than an inch a day, and new seed put into the ground comes up within three days. The people of this part of the country are in excellent spirits."

1830. THE ADVOCATE. 11 BIRD GETS tflRED. Morrill's Labor Commissioner is Suspended From the Trades Assembly. Labor Commissioner W. G. Bird, who lives at Kansas' City, Kas., and who has made an unenviable reputa tion ever since he has been in office, was "fired" from the Kansas City Trades Assembly at its meeting April 19. Bird belonged to Machinists' Union No. 278, and was recommended by the Trades Assembly, which is composed of three delegates from each union. Bird has been talking and acting as if he owned the entire labor vote of the State and of Kansas City in par ticular. This sort of talk did not prove very pleasing to the members of the labor organizations, and they expressed their sentiments rather vigor ously through the following resolu tions: Whibeas, A letter appeared in a Kansas City paper on March 29, signed by one W. G. Bird, and has never been denied ; and Whebe as, In the letter the said Bird does claim the absolute possession of the entire labor organizations of th...

THE! ADVOOATfi. 16 A PARMER'S C0MPAS3. tittle Implement That la Ciefal for ft Variety of Purposos. Inclosed please find a diagram of "a farmers compass, a little implement which I find very handy in setting buildings, equaling up fields, etc. Take a pine board 13 or 20 inches square; lay off a perfect square and put a brad in each corner. Draw lilies diagonally across so as to find the exact center, and drive a brad in it. File sharp, and be fftire they line up exactly. Fasten a sharpened stick or post to the board, or nail the board securely to a stake, and the Implement is done. In this country (northwestern Ohio), where the land is laid off by range or section, it is easy to run lines at right angles to the roads. By setting the compass so the brads will range with a given line and by looking across the tither way you have a right angle, and by setting stakes in range you can run as many angles as you choose. The idea is not original with me. 1 got it from a Scotchman named J ! S...

THE ADVOCATE. May 0, CORRESPONDENCE. Tha Singh Tax and the Money Queitlon Which Is the Fundamental One? Editor Advocate: la looking 07er some old papers I noticed an arti eld by Hon. John Davis in the Noncon formist of May 16, 1805, on the relative importance of the single tar and cur rency questions, which I think so typi cal of the reasons for divergence bstween two equally sincere schools of reformers that an examination of it must be of value to both. Mr. Davis' article is too lengthy to quote in full, nor is it necessary to do so, since it may be fairly stated in his own words: "The money-lord ia more powerful than the landlord; that it is the former which gives the latter notice to quit, and not the reverse; that when taxes are due the land-owner is help lessly at the mercy of the money-owner; that interest on money borrowed to pay taxes will absorb the mortgaged land and pass title from landlord to money lord." In proof of this he cites con centration of land values in ever f...

1E& THE ADVOCATE, ha eild that he favored the consolidate tog of all the transportation compaalsa under one management, say: "Of course we would have to look to the conservative branch of the government (the courts) for the protection of our Interests." So we see that the "con servative" branch of government the branch that was, in the olden days, supposed to be free from prejudice of any kind is now made the instrument by which, in many cases, justice Is balked. We hear men say that the people are higher than the courts. So they are; and when they once realize this power and the wrongs to which they are con tinually subjected, they will settle all of these questions. It would be a happy day for this country if the courts would deal out more equity and less law, and would get back to the good old doctrine that "A man's a man for a' that," and stop discoursing so learn edly on "vested rights." It is high time that the income tax, the coinage, the land and the transpor tation ques...

1896. THE ADVOCATE. 5 ABOUT THE COLLECTION OF DEBTS. A good deal of criticism has been published recently concerning the mer its and demerits of what is alleged to have been eaid by two State judges- one in Nebraska, the other in Kansas. The Nebraska judge is charged with having decided that a contract to pay a note with gold is not collectible in gold that any other legal tender money will answer. The Kansas judge is arraigned on information that he eaid he did not Bee any way to pay debts owed by counties and cities and town ships when the people had no money to pay with and could not get for their productions more than a living, and that the easiest way out of the difficulty is not to pay taxes. A Washington city newspaper, the Post, referring to the Kansas case, dis poses of it in the following brusque way: The penitentiaries of the country are crowded with inmates who tried to win the battle of life on just such principles as this judge advocates. But he errs In supposing that ...

G THIS ADVOCATE. Mat 6, VALUE OF CATTLE. Some Useful Information About Eclectics and Breeding Cattle for Fattening. Tha diagram herewith presented was prepared for the students of the Mis souri Agricultural College for the pur pose of aiding them in the study of beef cattle from the standpoint of the consumer and butcher, but more par ticularly from the standpoint of the feeder and breeder. It is primarily intended to show how a beef carcass is cut up by the retail butcher, and also gives the trade names of various butcher cuts. In the first place let us consider this Illustration from the standpoint of the feeder. There are at least two meth ods of making the feeding of beef ani mals more profitable first, by better methods of feeding, thus reducing the cost of production; and, second, by producing a more valuable article, or in other words, feeding better steers. What advantage has a good grade Short horn or Hereford steer over a native or scrub? Surely not a great ad vantage In t...

7 1338. THE ADVOCATE. THE IRREPRESSIBLE CONFLICT. BY THOMAS V. CATOR. The crisis i3 upon us. The campaign of 1886 will result in more for weal or woe than any event since the birth of this republic. The laborers and pro ducers of the nation are being de stroyed by an insatiable monster Usury. If this'd'emon survives, the masses must perish. Though de nounced by God, reason and expert; ence, this fiend has left the earth, in every age and clime, whitened with the bones of its victims. This word usury means to gnaw, to bite, and Is so defined because it eats up, or ab sorbs the product of the labor of others. But hard as the iron task-master has been in the past, there has been no period when it was so powerful, so ra pacious, so cruel and all-devouring aa at present. Within the last half cen tury it has submerged the United States beneath an ocean of interest bearing bonds and debts, such as no previous age or civilization ever faced or contemplated. Mr. Harvey esti mates the public ...
