AIDVOOATm FRE2 COINAGE OF SI1TKR. To the Editor of Thb advocatb. I aee a good deal of discussion In the papers on the silver quesion. The old parties think the present law la good enough, In that the government savea from 25 to 30 cents on every dollar coined. As I understand the free and unlimited coinage, the government would not buy any silver bullion at all; but that any holderf gold or silver bullion can take It to the'mints of the United States and have It! coined Into any authorized standard;coins'of the United States free of charge; and t the goverment under a free coinage law would save 100 cents on every dollar In place of 80 cents, and at the same time it would bring the silver bullion to par, so that the English could not'buy cheap silver In America to pur chase India wheat with, and thereby work an Injury to the American wheat grower to the tune of 30 per cent, on every dollar. The People's party has taken a new start here since the StLouIs conference,and we are getting...

TH3S ADVOOA.T2H to make that standard as dear to the people as possible. It was legislation in the inter est of the bond owner and creditor class, and added to the misfortunes and burdens of tho?e who were in debt. Jt depreciated the value of farm products, and said to the unfortunate debtor that it would impose ad ditional obligations upon him and make his life one of servitude to the creditor class if possible; and, Mr. Speaker, full justice will never be done until the last feature and last vestige of that unfortunate legislation is re pealed and driven from the statute books. Silver should be recrowned and should be given its honored place as one of the money metals of the world. The mints of the country should be opened to its coinage and its ancient prerogatives and ancient priv ileges should be reconferred upon it the same as upon gold. The money of Jacob and the money of our fathers should be good enough for the bondholders and bank ers of to-day,and in the name of patriotis...

TXUZ A2DVOOA.T2a 5 and still the tax is unpaid. Now there is another well known fact that ia worthy of note at this point The quality of these liquors is very much improved and their value largely en hanced by these sea voyages. They are said to be equivalent to seferal years of "aging." In proof of this read the following from the advertisement of a whole sale liquor house offering some of these high-priced liquors for sale. In 18S0 there was an over production of whis kies all over the United States. The distillers and wholesale dealers were greatly embarrassed, their product being permitted by law to remain In bond only three years. Congress, In order to relieve their distress and remedy the difficulty, enacted a law, permitting the exportation of whiskies to foreign lands, to remain there as long as desired by the owners, then to be re-Imported to this country subject to the same taxa tion as If they had remained at home and been taken out of bond at the end of three years.

6 LXT US KNOW THE TRUTH. Headers of The Advocate will be pleased to again see the name of H. A. Higgins, in another column of this issue. His series of able articles, re cently published, have attracted wide attention and favorable comment. Although at variance in some respects with the fundamental doctrines of the People's party, his writings have been marked by so manifest a spirit of fairness as to command the respect of our people. They have been exten sively read and have likewise been commented upon in a like spirit of candor and fairness. Mr. Higgins in this issue "Comments on the Com mentors"' We have not thus far participated in the discussion of the questions in volved in this communication, as our correspondents took the matter up before we had time to do so. There are certain propositions here laid down, however, that we desire to con sider. We shall not stop to question whether the currency issued by the government during the war depre ciated, or whether gold appreciate...

Tx-ns AiDvooiVTm 7 danger of disruption of the govern ment was past, and,as we have stated, at a time when the government was in no need of money. All the vast profits resulting from the speculation upon gold, the discount of the paper currency of the government, and the legislation by which the bonds origi nally payable in currency, were made payable in gold, are a clean steal, contemplated by the men who shaped the legislation for the purpose, and who have personally grown rich from the spoils gathered in under the pro visions of their own legislative acts. Mr. Higgins attempted justifica tion of the exception clause in the act of 1862, and of a like exception now, is fallacious upon his own hy pothesis. He says: "In order to make foreign purchases, or repay a foreign debt, the United States would have been compelled then (In 1862) and would to-day, to refuse, as that portion of Its Income anything which Is only money and nothing else. The United States must buy In the world's mar...

DEMOCBATS, "WHAT OF THE NIGHT r If western Democrats could once cut loose from the plutocratic element of the east that has controlled the policy of the party for many years past, and get back npon the old plat form of Jeffersonian Democracy, how much difference would there really be between them and the People's party? The defeat of the Bland bill by Democratic Representatives in the House ought to be sufficient to satisfy every honest western Democrat that nothing is to be expected of the con trolling' element of that party. Noth ing but a complete political revolution can awaken those plutocratic slaves to a realization of the fact that there is anything of this country west of the Allegheny mountains. How much of the principles of the present Democratic party in fact would Thom as Jefferson recognize were he on earth to-day? Is it not about time for honest western men regardless of party to dissolve allegience to eastern aristocracy and take a stand for the common rights of mank...

Tina advooath 0 Te Qas that Leavens Yeast, and baking powders that produce leavening gas by fermentative or putrefactive action, destroy a portion of the most nutri tive and healthful elements of the flour. The Royal Baking Powder produces the leavening gas in the dough by purely mechan ical means, and thus, while perfectly leavening, preserves unimpaired those elements intended by nature, when combined in our bread, to make it literally the " staff of life." No leavening agent or baking powder, ex cept the "Royal," possesses this great qualification. CORRESPONDENCE. Ransom, Kan., April T, 1892.

THIS AIDVOOJ.T22. li SOXB COMMENTS OS THE COMMENTA TORS. To the Editor of Thx AdvoCats. There have been two points raised In comment upon letters recently published over the signature of II. A. Hlgglna in This Ajotocate. Both of them were en tirely expected and awaited with perfect equanimity. One was entitled A Soldier's View," by Mr. Q.A.Bald win, and disputes both Senator Peffer and myself, as to the parity or deprecia tion of the United States currency during the war. The other was by Mr. A. M. Fuller, and was ' upon the exception clause in the currency proposed in the article entitled "What We Might Do About It." As to the first, Mr. Peffer would be the right man to justify his state ment that, "compared with wheat or corn or cotton, tobacco, beef, pork or any of the products of labor, or with labor itself, the paper money remained at par." However, as the Senator is otherwise employed, I am happy to be able to Bhow the truth of his argument, and I hope to satisfy Mr. Baldwin. ...

15 CONSISTENCY OP MB. INGALLS. To the Editor of Ths Advocatb. I wish to call your attention to the late speech of ex Senator John J. Ingalls.made In Topeka, in which he says he does not wish his Republicanism questioned, and that he was raised and always has been a Republican Now let us look Into his past record and especially during the war, We find that in 18C3 he ran for lieuten ant governor on the Union ticket against Thos. A. Osborn, Republican, and was defeated by a majority of 2,358. In 18G1 he again ran for the same office on the Republican-Union ticket, against James McGrew, Republican, and was again de feated by a majority of 3,031. Now I wish to call to notice that in both the ahove campaigns the Democrats put no state ticket in the field and that the Union and Republican-Union party consisted of Democrats and such Repub licans as condemned the war policy of the illustrious Lincoln; and although we are willing to admit that there were some good men who voted that ticket, ...
