VOL VIII., NO. 22. BUTLER'S BOND BILL. The Senate Considers a Measure Forbidding the Further Issue of Bonds. Some time ago Senator Butler (Pop.) introduced in the Senate a bill to prohibit the further issue of bonds. He has attempted on several occasions to press its consideration, but the Senate never took the matter up with any de gree of earnestness until last Friday. Senator Butler's motion to proceed with it was adopted by a vote of 34 to 20. The aye votes were given by twelve Repub licans, seventeen Democrats and five Populists, and the nays by fifteen Re publicans and tiye Democrats. Feffer voted to consider the bill, and Baker voted no. The usual filibustering methods were resorted to by Senator Hill. He got the floor and made a speech against the bill, in which he said: "The alleged crime of 1873 will be as nothing to the crime which will be perpetrated if this bill passes and becomes a law. It is a bold proposition to repeal the resumption act, to repeal the only law which...

THE A.DVOOjfLrT'Zl. CARLISLE VS. CARLISLE. Ex-Congressman Bryan Makes Some Sug gestions as to the Courts of the Kentucky Judas. Hon. W. J. Rryan of Nebraska, the well-known silver Democrat leader, has written a letter to John G. Carlisle, Secretary of the Treasury, which con tains some things which are well worth reproducing: Mr. Bryan says: "You have changed your position upon the paramount public Issue and are now defending a financial policy which you once denounced. The ad vocates of free and unlimited coinage at 16 to 1 admit your right to change your opinion, but contend that you owe it to the public to answer the ar guments which you yourself made in 1878f before attempting to answer the arguments of others. You then vsed the following language: 'If the exe cution of this measure (the Bland act) could be entrusted to a public officer whose opinions on the subject were In accord with those of the great major ity of the American people, and whose sympathies were with the strugg...

1803. 5 THE ADVOCATE. THE WORLD'S WHEAT FIELDS, Some of oar "eminent statisticians and economists" have been predicting an early occupation of all the available wheat lands of the world, and with that assumption as a demonstrated fact, they encouraged farmers to hope for an early and a permanent rise in prices of wheat. But these well-meaning persons bad not measured the ex tent of the world's wheat fields. Our American prophets have not consid ered a fact that it would seem every well-informed man ought to know, that within the boundaries of the United States not more than one-half the wheat producing lands are in culti vation; nor have they taken into ac count the fact that the lands which are now producing wheat do not yield more than one-half of what they could be made to yield by careful tilth. Nor have these economists' gone across the border into that vast wheat region extending 1,600 miles north and northwest from Lake Superior. If a circle were drawn around the city of Dulu...

A correspondent writes the Farm, Field and Fireside (Chicago) and crit icizea Secretary Coburn's figures on the cost of raising corn. Mr. Coburn's article was given in these columns gome time ago. The correspondent says: "The article recently published in the Farm. Field and Fireside by Sec retary Coburn on the cost of raising corn in Kansas gives figures that are not warranted by the facts and should not be accepted by those who might be led to try farming in localities In this State. The Secretary whips us farmers over the head for complaining of hard times and high interest by figuring 2)4 per cent, interest on our investment, which, he says, 'is a net rate higher than the capitalist, general banker or money-lender dreams of realizing.' It is no dream ,but the naked truth.that the bankers and money lenders are de manding and getting from our farmers from 12)4 to 24 per cent, for...

THE ADVOCATE. 7 CREDIT OF KANSAS. Which Ilarta it Most, the Pop Courts or the Thieving Attorneys Who Prac tice In Them? A few years ago, when the Anthony Loan & Trust Company was dotog business in Anthony, they made a loan to F. M. Evans on real estate, and the mortgage was subsequently sold to John S. Smith of Massachusetts. In 1893 the mortgage became due, and through the Eastern agents was sent to J. R. Ilammond of Anthony for collection. We are told that Mr. Evans paid the mortgage of $600 to Mr. Ham mond in July, 1893, but that the latter gentleman or some of his colleagues in the case failed to report the collection or send in the cash. Instead of that he or they reported that they couldn't tret a foreclosure proceeding through a Topulist court. The Eastern investor knew Mr. Evans to be a safe man and the loan ti be a good one, and was contented to let the case take its turn and was not worried about his security. A similar case was a loan to Henry Peters. On the payment o...

Of course, un der the contract thus created, she had a right to resort to other property of the debtor to make up for any deficiency remaining after the sale oi the real estate mortgaged. As the law stood at the time the contract was made, if Kirtland, either by purchase at the sale or by subsequent transactions, became the owner of the real estate, Mrs. Barnitz had a legal right to again levy thereon and subject it to the payment of the remnant of her debt. But this law, as we have seen", in express terms declares that this real estate shall not again be liable for sale for any balance due upon the judgment or decree under which the same is 6old.
