7 Gdtl); ITS PROPERTIES AND MORAL USF. To the Editor of The Advocate. It was shown la former articles that things ch not pontes Intrinsic value. Gold and silver then do not possess in trinsic value. They both have Intrinsic properties. All bodies have intrinsic properties. Value is a property of no commodity. The Intrinsic properties of Iron are more valuable than thoee of gold. If Iron were annihilated, civiliza tion would depart, if a substitute could not be found. If gold were annihilated, s-xilety would practically lose nothing that would block the wheels of progress. It is a misnomer to rail gold and silver the precious raetala. T ley ara only pre cious to the knave9, who by deception make the people believe tht they are the only fit materials of which to make mo ney. Iron, lead and tin are the precious metals. They are the mainspring of civ ilization. When Crcesus In ostentation showed Solon all blag ld and silver, So lon remarked, "Sir, If any other come, that hath better Iro...

I will quote part of the article. It wy: "It will only take about two more gatherings to place the rebel flag beside the atari sod stripes on the convention ball stages In the interests of sectional tini'yand brotherly loye." Oh, how It does grieve the Republican editor and the Republican press in general that they can keep the two sections divided no longer. . And the same may be eald of the Democratic prtssof the south. It grieves the press of both section of our country to think that they can keep ua divided no longer, and that their darling pets meet together, and with the slander, and dirt falsehood of the press of the two old parties of the country, have not only bridged the chasm that has been between them for, lo, these many yeare, but bo completely filled it up from one end to the oJier that no trace o...

14 TIdC ADVOCATE, THK WAY OUT. To the Editor of ThxAdvocitb. I have read Mr. II. A. Ilitrglna letters la The Advocate headed, "What are you going to do about it," with considerable interest, and waa anxious all the while to see what he waa going to do about it, or would do if he could. I thought from the able manner in which he discussed the subject that he would have an un usually good remedy to offer, but 1 must say that in some respects I am disap pointed. Even to the unemployed la borer he dues not abk the relief which all the poor people in the Unit d States should have, viz , a currency equal in every respect to gold money that is "worth its face value for any and every purpose for which money is used in the United States, a legal tender for all debts both public and private.

THE A2DVOOA.T1Q. 15 VY05UX SUFFRAGE AND PROHIBITION. To the Editor of The Advocate: The Kansas City Star (Democratic) and the Wichita Eagle (Republican) aw greatly worked op that the St. Louis conference did not adopt prohibition and woman suffrage plunks In its platform. They em almost enraged about It. It la strange that the complaints should come principally from "joint" patron and supporters and those who are the bitter foes of bjth those reform raas ures. It only proves that they desired to see such planks adopted in order, a they think, to make defeat of the new party more certain. All true and prac tical reformers are glad these issues art left out of the St. Louis platform. Perhaps the Eagle can prevail on the Republican party retaining the prohibl tin plank In its state platform, particu larly as that was what elected their gov ernor in 1890; and it should also urge the national Republican convention to adop' such a plank. The Star, Mng Itself great reform paper of the grea...

ANOTHER LETTER FROM OUR NATIONAL SECRETARY. Editor Southern Alliance Farmer: If we look back just five yean and re fresh our minds with the state of affairs at that time and then compare them with the present, we will have food for many days' honest thought Five years ago the farmers of this country were com paratively organized, and seemed almost unconscious of their political surround inga. The workmen in the cities were better organized, but had given little thought as to the real cause of their troubles. The work of organization pro gressed among the farmers until their or ganized numbers became so great that they concluded that by co-opefation in buying and selling they could eliminate the profits of the middlemen and thereby restore themselves to prosperity. But after several years of p...

THE .AJDVOOA.T3H TUB CAUSES AND THE REMEDY. To the Editor of Thb Advocate. I have been intenely interested in the the series of articles by II. A. Hlgglna in Thb Advocate for the past month or more. Aside from their literary merit (which sJoiw would insure an interested audi ence) they show a pretty thorough knowledge of the condition of the great masses of the people at the present time. And however we may differ as to the causes and the cure, I heartily agree with him in his diagnosis of the case. Like Mr. IHgglns, I was born and raised in a Republican atmosphere, and was an ardent Republican for years. But I was never a "strong partisan." By that I mean, I never thought that everything my party did was right, and everything the other fellow did was wrong. And when I became old enough to understand something of public af fairs, and became convinced that a cer tain class of the people was being favored at the expense of every other class, and especially of the producing classes, I ...

THE ADVOOATa 3 THE SINLGE TAX. To the Editor of Thi Advocate. There is perhaps no body of voters In the United States more'thoroughly organ ized or so active, earnest and persistent in educational propaganda as are the diciples of Henry George, known as single taxers. Indeed, so dogmatic are they in their authorative assumption of Infallibility for their arguments, that it would seem to be a hopeless task to at tempt to combat their arguments or dis pute the conclusions they have arrived at. I have notlcd in one or two Blngle tax journals, a disposition to deplore the fact that the St. Louis conference missed the golden opportunity afforded It, of en dorsing and advocating a perfect system of economics and an ideal system of taxa tion, t . e., the single tax. Men, will differ however, and I, for my part, think that the only taxes that could never be shifted, would be those levied upon unused and unoccupied land and upon incomes, es tates, inheritances and bequests. Our single tax fr...

THE AIDVbi-T2a 4 THE OUTLOOK IX KAN8A3. Under the above headlines the Em poria Republican of March 17, pre tends to survey the political situation in Kansas and forecast the result of the approaching contest. It quotes from the Kansas City Journal as fol lows: To one standing at the gateway looking over the field It Is very apparent that never before In the history of Kansas Republicanism have the prospects for success been brighter than they are now. Not that the certainty of a large and cumbersome majority Is so protuberant, but the spirit manifesto! everywhere by Republicans from Cherokee county to Cheyenne Is of the old fashioned and Indomitable sort that conquers. Heretofore, unt'l very recently, Republican vic tories In Kansas have come as the sunshine comes, as the winds blow, as the grass grows. That was the way It came la the year of the 82. 000. Practical politics was an art unknown, and when It was call'd for In 1390 it was not found. Last year was a yaar of training; and...

TidUU A2DVOOA.T2L 7 THE WAT OUT. We Must Have a low Fstablished Bate of In terest, With Free Trade. To the EdU ir of Ths Advocat. Interest being the base of all rents and profit?, as stated by George C. Ward in his article In your former Issue, by es tablishing a lower rate of interest we es tablish a lower rate of expense for the wage worker, thereby enabling him to accept the low wages he Is obliged to, In away I wish to show you. Under the present system hla wages continue to go lower, in consequence of foreign labor imported to compete with him, while the high rate of Interest obtains the same for protected monopolists. England having a lower established rate, the cost of liv ing and also the cost of production is cheaper. In this country, where high rates obtain, the laboring man's expense is higher, therefore, hla wages ought to be higher, but they have constantly been going lower, until (as statistics from the labor department show) the average in come of the head of a family...
