Thirty four votes are necessary to nominate The Douglas county Republican com mittee met and named delegates to the Senatorial convention. The Republi cans of the county are calling on the committee to rescind its action. If this is not done they propose to hold a convention and elect another delega tion. Meriden Ledger (Rep.): "While Mor rill has conducted an economical ad ministration, he is a weak and vacil lating official who secured the highest position in Kansas through false pie tenses, never intending, we believe, to uphold and enforce the laws of the State without fear or favor." Butler county Populists by a unan imous vote accorded Judge A. W. Dennison the privilege of naming the delegates to the Appellate court con vention.

The burden of the tale of ridicule was that the measures were idiotic, impracticable and abso lutely valueless.

14 TSB ADVOCATE. Mat 4 PniVATE CREAMERY. fiaceeu of Dairyman Eoiraxed ZlaXksSj of Prim Batter. "II ere and there a dairyman is break ing away from the factories and trying lha making of gilt-edged butter. I have a neighbor with an 18-cow dairy on a 130-acra farm, who made this change last winter," writes L. B. Tierce in Country Gentleman. "He bought a separator costing $120, and some other conveniences, and proceeded to make a high grade of butter for customers in our town and Akron, delivering every Saturday morning. Almost from the start his customers brought other customers, bo he had to buy the cream of two neighbors, besides some from a creamery a few miles away. I have my doubts whether that bought from the creamery brought him any profit, but in most cases it waa a necessity in order to hold his customers through & period when from weather or acci dents to cows his own supply was in sufficient. The most interesting fea ture of his experiment is the returns he gets from th...

VOL YIIL, NO. 20. TOPEKA, KANSAS, MAY 13, 1896. $1.00 A YEAR J. P. HARRIS WINS. Republicans Nominate the Ottawa Banker for Congress After an Extended Contest The fight for the Republican nomi cation for Congress in the Second dis trict which began immediately after Congressman Miller's announcement of hia desire to retire, was ended by the nomination by the Lawrence convection of J. P. Harris, an Ottawa banker, on the 112th ballot. The convention began its work Tues day, May 5, and it adjourned May 8. W. H. Carpenter of Miami was elected temporary chairman. The principal fight of the early part of the convention was oyer the contesting delegations from Wyandotte county, known as the Bnchan and anti-Buchan delegations. It was decided to choose a Credentials committee consisting of one member from each county, to be elected by the county delegation. In this matter neither Wyandotte delegation was per mitted to participate. The committee so selected was made up of the following delegat...

THE ADVOCATE, Mat 1 , CORRESPONDENCE. The St. Louis Platform. Editor Advocate: The duty of the St. Louis Populist convention is unquestionably to be true to Populist sentiment, and to bo formulate this sentiment as to make it in the highest possible degree effective politically, which means effective In good govern ment. Such duty does not necessarily imply a re affirmation of the Omaha platform, or of every part of it, but of the cardinal Issues of 1896, which may or may not be the same as in 1892, or may be only partially so, or the same principles may be stated in different terms and given different relative im portance, new issues added, or super ceded ones dropped. As a matter of fact the issues of '96 are practically the same as of '92, and the only changes required are correc tions of statements and of omissions, rather than the introduction of new matters. I think the platform should contain an explicit demand for proportional representation, which is a far more im portant m...

THUS ADVOCATE. 0 Almighty fiat from the rain that seems impending. There was no ray of hope previous to the Charleston convention of I860, but in a week, in the twink ling of an eye, as it were, all was changed, the sun of heaven emerged from a dark, dense cloud, everything took on a brilliant aspect, the people organized with a shout and marched forward almost unopposed to victory and triumph. The hand of Providence was in it. It was one of those miracles that God works when he decides to take a hand in the affairs of men. A 'Fifty sixer. Fartlei Make Hen Cowards. A few days ago there met at the cap ital of Kansas an ex-Governor, who is a Republican, and three or four gentle men who held official positions in the State administration when he was Gov ernor also Republicans. The conver sation, of course, took a political turn. Comparing notes, these gentleman agreed that they were really Populists in sentiment. They acknowledged that the government ownership of railroads was right, a...

1800. 5 THE ADVOCATE. MONEY OF ULTIMATE REDEMPTION. On the money question there la a fatal error prevalent. It has descended to us from the barbarism o f the past. Its origin is too far back for history to trace. It began when commerce was born. But since that time the world has been conquered. Then a log was a ship. One man rode it astride and car ried with him only hla own weapon of attack or defense. Now we put a hun dred thousand bushels of wheat in one vessel and send it across the Atlantic in ten days. Then men with their pro duce moved from place to place over land on the backs of camels, asses and mules. Now we load our railway trains by machinery and rush them on their way with the epeed of wind. Then men made but few things which they did not require for their own personal nse and trade extended but short distances. Now the world is astir. Mechanism has brought the na tions into one great community of trade. A thousand steam ships and as many sail are required to bring to ...

1838. THE ADVOCATE, APRIL CROP REPORT. The Board of Agriculture Makes a State ment Based on Reports of Corre spondents. A summarized report of the State Board of Agriculture on Kansas crop conditions existing April 30, based on an analysis of answers from inquiries in detail sent to 1,000 correspondents and covering practically every neigh borhood in the State, was issued May 3, as follows: WINTER WHEAT. Well-nigh every one of the 105 coun ties reports winter wheat now in most excellent condition, described in many as "best prospect we ever had," "could cot be beaten," "promises a heavy crop," etc. The percentage of condi tion in different counties ranges in av erage from 72 in Cherokee to 117 per cent, in Gove, and for the entire State is 97 per cent. But two or three re porters make allusion to presence of chinch bugs (these being on tha whig) and none mention their doing or even threatening harm, except in perhaps one township, the rains and considera ble cool weather so far havi...

THE ADVOCATE, 9 would do nothing less than pat a premium on hypocrisy and dishonesty and result in the corruption of the very fountain of justice at its source If our judiciary must consider the question as to whether or not their da cisions will meet the approval of the men who manipulate the wires at po litical conventions, the sooner we make the judiciary an appointive instead of an elective oflice the better it will be for the happiness and prosperity of our people." "What the Senate was badly in need of immediately after Pitchfork Till man sat down Friday was about thirty minutes of John James Ingalls." In commenting on the foregoing from the Topeka Capital, the Lawrence Journal (Rep.) says: "Perhaps. But readers of more or less ancient history will remember that the last speech of importance made by this man John James Ingalls in the Senate of the United States was on exactly the same lines as those followed by His Pitch forkship. In fact, the speech of In galls would suffer b...
