THE ADVOCATE. 9 Bice, Norton, Comanche and Chautau qua counties, all ct which is lost. In charging this investment ot $10, 000 in Hamilton county bonds to incom petency or dishonesty, the Capital has failed to realize that ten or fifteen times as much incompetancy and dishonesty has been manifested in the past by re publican boards. All we desire is simple justice. Every imaginable plan has been tried, and every imaginable scheme con cocted to defraud the state through the purohase of bad bonds since the present administration came into power. The board has rejected about $200,000 in bonds during the past year, because they were not considered good securities, and out of $700,000 worth so far purchased, these $10,000 of Hamilton county are the only ones whose validity has ever been questioned, and even in this case the chance of the state losing anything is very remote. There is one other matter mentioned in the Capital which deserves attention. It is stated that Simon Greenspan off...

10 THE ADVOCATE. NEWS BY FREIGHT. An Item That the Great Dailies Hare Not Heard Of. Paris, Maroh 11. At the session of the chamber of deputies on the 8th inst ant, our comrade, Professor Jean J&ures, demanded leave to interpellate the gov ernment upon the relations that seem to exist between the anarchists on the one hand, and people high in the financial world end among the clergy on the other, neither of whom had in any way been disturbed by the government. It is now an established fact a fact admitted by the official journal of the government, by the Temps, and by the Petite Oironde, which is the special journal of Cabinet Minister Reynal that the Tournade family and other an archists of the same stripe are on the best of terms with this and that Roths child, and with a certain Duchees d'Uzee, none of whom hesitate to subsidize and otherwise to give aid and comfort to the lovely apostles of the so-called "propa ganda of deed." How comes it that while the govern xnent is every...

THE ADVOCATE. 11 The Equilibrium of Business Under this title Mr. Mason Green has an article in the April number or Donahoe's Magazine, from which we here make a few extracts respecting existing conditions. Editor. At an auction sale in Salem, Ore., the other day, horses brought only 17.50, hogs $1 50, oows 13, plows 30 cent?, and so on and this to satisfy a mortgage debt contracted under market condi tions which, if maintained, would have enabled the farmer to pay his obligation from the product of the soil In Seattle, Wash., the owners of a business block worth $250,000 three years ago are now convinced that it will not bring under the hammer the amount of the $50,000 mortgage. Ten thousand people have left Oregon alone since last spring on account of the hard times, and the labor unions are warning their brothers of the East not to be misled by the optimistic resolutions of boards of trade, as times are desperately dull, and there is no sign of improvement.

12 THE ADVOCATE. brought the Atchison. Topeka and Santa Fa railroad to book. It had been capi talized upon the basis of dollar wheat, helped to impoverish the sections it pro fessed to serve, and, when it reached tha repair shops of the United States court with a receiver in charge, it carried 170,000 per mile of watered stock. It owned or operated 9,345 miles of track in fourteen states and territories, and had entered the the commercial field by investing in Aztec Land and Cattle rom pany,the Ronton Coal and Coke company, the San Pedro Coal and Coke company, the Mineral Belt Coal and Iron company, etc Its plant can be duplicated with a turn of money equal to the nominal value of its watered stock. But compe tition, with other systems, forced it into an indebtedness of $240,000,000. The time came when the problem of rail reading became a problem of financier ing, and lawyers and financial experts undertook to restore equilibrium. Other systems were bending under similar loads.

14 THE ADVOCATE. Thoughts From the Bats. Editob Advocate: I was riding to town the other day, and a portion of the road having been cut up, when muddy, was very rough. There waa much jost ling and shaking; the driver waa very mad at the road; and while ha fumed and snarled and made me more uncom fortable than the shaking did, my mind was filled with many thoughts from the fact that judt on either side of ua waa a good smooth road, while we were being shaken up because the driver did not choose to turn out of the ruts perhaps he did not see. No matter; the ruta were not lesa rough because he waa the more blind. I saw the smooth way and so found it all the more exasperating to be shook up in old ruts. I can stand a good deal of shaking when there is no help for it, but cannot bear it vrith one bit of patience when I once see the way out I wish I could recall to mind now all the thoughts that came to it during the brief space I was in those ruta. I thought of the poor, unthinking crea ...

Nay, and he who would be Defeats hia own heart's dearest purpose then. No truer truth was ever told to thee Who hai loved most, he bent can love again. Ella Wuekleb Wilcox. During the week, and, especially after the publication of the sermon in the Evening News, there was much "caucussing" among the members of Brother Mason's congregation; for so general was the discussion the dis course excited that those cautious Christians who had stayed away from church to avoid the danger of hearing the wickedness, found themselves obliged to read it in order to know as much as their neighbors. The "gent's-furnishing goods" mer chant, who stood high in society, de clared, "I don't want any preacher that savs God never existed to preach in my church." The president of the Valley National bank said it was "the most incendiary anarchist harangue' he had ever heard. ...

THE ADVOCATE, Harbinson was introduced to them. Kate thought ofllattie Harbinson, but said nothing asked no question, for, perhaps, he did not wish to be "found out." But Kate's preference for Mason was so unmistakable, and Grace and Harbinson soon became so much inter ested in each other, that the preacher's anxiety abated, and he began to be ashamed of the feeling of jealousy he had entertained toward his friend. Mr. Harbinson made himself exceedingly agreeable to Judge Holder's niece by his radical views and the elegant ve hemence with which he expressed them; she pretending to be very conservative and allowing him to undertaKener con version, lie discovered her false pre tense at last, and well, they liked each other very much, and Mason perceived this, and was glad now that the young lawyer had come, for it simplified the process of getting the young ladies home. Two couples walked to the suburbs that night where but one had walked before, and, arm in arm, two handsome men walk...

THE ADVOCATE, 5 OUB CONGRESSMEN. Continued from page l. found work at the towns and cities through which they had paaeed. The prosecuting attorney tried hard to convict the men upon the charge of vagrancy. Mr. Hudson plead the non jurisdiction of the court, as they had been arrested outside the city limits. The prosecution dwelt upon the "dark feature of the organization of the men." It looked suspicious that these men Bhould have rales of agreement and should have a captain. Captain Prim rose was not of the old order of the "captains of industry1 and the judge couldn't understand him. The Goulds and Vanderbilts and other captains had gotten other men to work for them. This new-fashioned captain, who worked with his own hands and traveled in the box car with the men of his company, was a mystery and a terror to the court. It went hard with the court to dismiss the case. The judge strove to exact of the men a promise to move on, to get out of his way into some other judge's way, but ...

0 THE ADVOCATE, TILS OVERPRODUCTION OF WHEAT. Ik is o! little interest to pursue a controversy with the Capital upon this or any other subject, so long as it will claim to have answered argu ments that it has never even alluded to. We have shown by official re ports in preceding articles that in no year in the recent past have wa pro duced wheat enough to have properly supplied the wants of our own peo ple after having supplied the actual market. The Capital has never even attempted to show any error in our figures or calculations. According to the Capital's theory, that overproduction is the cause of low prices, the price should rise and fall according as the product should be greater or less than the average. In the first article we published in reply to the Capital's theory, we demonstrated, taking two census years for our calculation in order to use only official figures, that the sup ply in 1880 was less in proportion to population than in 1870 and still the price was much lowe...

10' THE ADVOCATE. Sincerity In Politic!. Communicated. Conceding to others honesty of pur pose however untenable their position may be, should be our aim in life. Why men differ in their political views is very apparent when we consider the different environments of life. They are, how ever, a few questions upon which all agree. To think and act according to the dictates of one's conscience is the moat sacred. Lot every man be fully persuaded in his own mind, is the divine injunction. That conscience la not a true guide in all the avenues of life the world concedes to-day, else Paul would not have persecuted the apostles or sanc tioned etoneing the followers of the lowly Nazarene. The Hindoo mother cast her innocent babe to the monsters of the deep only to answer the dictates of a misguided conscience. All should seek the truth ' and be able to give a reason for the faith that is within them. To allow ourselves to tread the windpress of party pre judice, blindly following a pet noti...

ADVOCATE. 11 MUEDEESD! A Bloody Page In the History of Capitalism In the State of New York. The Dolgee, after whom Doljfeville in this state has been named, are the lead ing exponents in their factory of the "profit-sharing" plan, and of the brother hood said by them to exist between cap ital and labor. The People has on a previous occasion taken up these Dolges and shown that theirs was the most abominably paternal scheme, whereby the workers would be held down in ab ject slavery. Last Sunday, however, the scheme broke upon the people of this country in still more lnrid light. A workingman at Alfred Dolge's factory, Fritz Kloetzler, who had been discharged and placed on the black list because he would not submit to the political dicta tion of that boss, was found in his house stretched out alongside of his wife and his four children, all of them dead dead by his own hands. The story of thia tragedy is best told by two letters sent by Kloetzler to two friends in this city, and by a ...
