TH3Z3 j3DVOOA.TID. 0 eOSIZTHOO TO THINK ABOUT. Phillip County It Paring Off Her Mort gages ''Oar Debts Represent Oar Prop erty," Etc To the Editor of Thk Advocate. The trial docket for the January term of the district court in this county showed 100 foreclosure cases. Of these, thirty cases were continued. The amount of judgments taken .was $57,621. At the same term there were forty-five sheriff's sales confirmed, In cases repre senting Judgments to the amount of $30,28060, and in which the lands sold for $10,824.71. The mortgages are released, but there remains unsatisfied judgments just in those forty-five cases to the amount of $19,455.89. Is this a "calamity howl?" Verily, a law that will allow such a state of affairs is a calamity. Men may talk of offering Inducements for capital to come Into our state, but the people now say, since their eyes have been opened, that men who will enact such a law are, if not guily of robbery, at least accessory before the tact. No one among the ...

THE ADVOOATm 11 TUX ST. LOUIS PLATFORM. THJt ADDRESS. This, the first great labor conference of the United States and of the world rep resenting all divisions of urban and rural organized industry assembled In nation al congress, Invoking upon Its action the blessing and protection of Almighty God, puts forth, to and for the producers of this nation, this declaration of union and Independence: The conditions which surround us best justify our co-operation. "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. The newspapers are subsidized or muzzled; publio opinion silenced; business pros trated; our homes covered with mort gages; labor Impoverished, and the land concen...

I am challenged by the editor of The Advocate to explain how the Industrial classes can, at the present time, success folly Institute co-operative industries especially withoul money. Ho asserts that political co-operation iathe one thing practical for industry just now. Judging by the past, one may be pardoned for being a little skeptical in regard to the utility of voting as a means for procuring bread and butter for the voter. I have voted for over thirty years, and usually with the labor party, and never procured enough food by that means to feed a chicken. And if there Is any one thing more than another in this sorely governed country that Is decided In favor of theblggest bar rel of money, It Is the election. Moneyless men are not usually succe...

Volumi nous and graphic, from many pens, has been of late the diagnosing of the gen eral condition of poverty, Bufferings, un rest and forebodings with the masses, all wealth flowing to and corrupting the few, arid all this as under a method of geo metrical ratio. But who bo graphta epl grammatical, even classical, as H. A. HIgglns. In the five columns of February 24, what was it by direct inference, but as terrible an arraignment and impeach ment of the money system now in vogue (essentially the same used for commerce in all ages but now intensified) as was ever penned since the Apostle James.

TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, MAECH 30, 1892. $1.00 PER YEAR. ALL MONEY IDEAL To the Editor of Th Advooatb. Montef quleu, the great French philos opher, in "L'Esprit de Lois," tells of a tribe of negroes on the east coast of Africa who used an Ideal money, called macutes. There was no such a thing as a macute, yet they used the macute as their measure of exchange. It has been denied by many economists that such an ideal money was ever used. The ad mission would be fatal to the popular falsities gold basis, honest money In trinsic value. The African hunter takes a deer to a trading place, to exchange for the things he wants. "I'll give you fifteen macutes for your deer," says the trader." "You can have it," says the hunter. "What's the price of that bow and arrows?" says the hunter. "Eight macutes says the trader. "I will take them," says t...

THIS ADVOCATE THE SINGLE TAX. Ioibe Editor of Th advocate. Ia the Standard of December 2, 1891, there appears an article over Mr. Henry George's own signature, under the cap tion, "Incidence of the Single Tax," from which I clip aa follows: An objection to the single tax, familiar to all who hare followed the discussion, is that theowners of land would eommensurately increase the price of land and of its products. This objection, where it is honest, comes from a oareless assumption. From the fact that most of the taxes levied under the present system add to the cost of production and inorease prices, and are thus shifted by first payers to the shoulders of ultimate con sumers, it is assumed without inquiry as to the reason of this that it is true of all taxes. The earlier files of the Standard show a con stant recurrence of this objection. But thanks to the thorough explanations that have from time to time been made, and to the diffusion of economic knowledge which our agitation has...

THUD JiJD VOOiTsa 3 ENFRANCHISEMENT OF WOMEN. To the Editor of Thb advocate. The phenomenal success that has at tended the Alliance and People's party has in a great measure been due to the co-operation of the women of Its order. In all of the sub-Alliances In which I have visited, the success has been largely due to the enthusiasm and participation of the women of Its order. Side by side they have labored in field, In forum and in press. Without their patient sympathy and persistent pluck, the courage of the order would have lagged, and disap pointment would have been their meas ure. And now as promise of success nears its fruition we ask the simple meed of recognition by the growing new party. Will you respond put In our hands the ballot that we may help vanish the de stroyer of our homes? There are evils, both social and political, that we want to see removed. We have grown weary of beating the air; give us a weapon to de fend ourselves. Some of us are widowed, and have families ...

TJdUC AD VOOilT2a 5 THX ONLY PRACTICAL SOLUTION OF THE LIQUOR QUESTION. The Methodist conference at its re cent session in Kansas City, among other resolutions adopted the follow ing: That In the opinion of this body the present law Is defective In principle, In that It permits the liquor traffic as a source of personal profit, thus constantly presenting the temptation to an Illegal selllnz for purposes of gain. We are of the opinion that It Is preferable that sales for constitutional purposes should be made only by salaried agents of the state, thus making It im possible that we should have, In the guise of drug stores, places that are really saloons. Compare this resolution with the following plank of the People's party platform of Ohio in 1891: We believe that the solution of the liquor prob lem lies in abolishing the element of profit, which Is a source of constant temptation and evil, and we therefore demand that the exclusive importation, exportation, manufacture and sale of a...

6 TOE NATIONAL UNION COMPANY. The following is from the official proceedings of the late session of the Supreme Council at Indianapolis: The report of tbe business agents was received, together with minority rtport presented by Brother George B. Lang. Both reports were laid on the table. A resolution by Brother Plerson, of Virginia, was adopted: Whereas, The revision of the statutory laws has abolished the standing committee of the state buslnes ageDts; - Besolved, That the Supreme Council heartily puts Itself on record as bavin no responsibility whatever for the action of the state business agents. Believing that the business agents of the several state exchanges were engaged in a legitimate business in the interest of members of the Alli ance they were given seats in the Supreme Council at Ocala in 1890. The report in favor of the National Union Company at Indianapolis sat isfied the Supreme Council that they were not interesting themselves in legitimate business pursuits, and hen...

TUMI ADVOOATOH 7 WASHINGTON. History Repeats Itself-The Free Coinage Bill Crowds the Tariff Oat-Tho -Antls" Working Hard to Defeat th Bland B11L (Editorial correspondence.) In the eacred writitsgs of the Acts of the Apostles, it la recorded that a great hubbub was created at a certain place where the Apostle Paul was engaged in preaching and in teaching, by reason of a fear that the great goddess Diana, of the of the Epheslans, might be lowered in the esteem of her blind but enthusiastic idolatrous worshippers. It would seem that when the people of Ephesus per ceived that when one Alexander, a Jew, came among them and would have his defense for so doing, these excited peo ple all with one voice about the space of two hours cried out, "Great is Diana, of the Ephe8ians.n As history is ever repeating itself, It may be remarked that la our great Ameri can republic, there seems to-day to be an antiquated set of political economists and theological teachers, ignoring the letter and spirit...

8 THIS ADVOCATE A CXITIC CRITICIZED. To the Editor of Tns advocate: I hive received a phamplet from the Century Company in which the author criticizes us poor benighted People's party men on our ideas of finance. I de sire to criticize the critic. I am sorry to note that this critic Is either very Ignor ant of facta or willfully misstates. He says: The harmful delusion that the govern ment has the power to create money is trace able directly to the legal tender act of 18C2. Previous to that time the American people, in common with other enlightened nations, believed that the sole functions of govern-, ment in relation to money was to certify to the weight and purity contained in it. This view, which it is scarcely necessary to say has been shown by the experience of all civil ized countries to be the only sound one, was completely upset in the minds of thousands of uoinstructed people by the issue of the legal tenders and the subsequent decisions of the supreme court upholding the r...
