THE EJOOME TAX. Representative Sperry, of Con necticut, objects to the proposed in come tax because of its inquisitorial features. He thinks it wrong to pry into the private affairs of citizens of large incomes in order to ascertain the amount of tax they should be re quired to pay. The average taxpayer will hardly be able to see the force of this objection. Oar whole system of direct taxation is open to precisely the same objection, and if it is valid as applied to citizens of large in comes', it is equally valid as applied to property holders everywhere, and the whole system should be abol ished. The assessor, in his annual rounds among the farmers, mechan ics, and small tradesmen of the coun try is quite inquisitorial in his style of address. He wants to know of the farmer just how many cattle and horses and sheep and hogs he is the unhappy possessor of, how much wheat and corn he has in his grain ery, and he is especially interested in knowing whether he has a carriage to ride t...

G THE (XEOtTOISH, SOCIALISM, AHASOH ISM. It has been the custom of demo republican editors to use these tarms very loosely, and evidently without any definite understanding of their real signification, especially as ap plied to disciples of these doctrines in America. They have seemed to have but one purpose in view to make the names a reproach, and then, by attaching them to members of the People's party, to turn the prejudice theyhave created against them against the party itself. The reform press as a rule has not given as much attention to the correction of false impressions upon these subjects as their import ance demands. Of course no infor mation will be gained from those who seek partisan ends by means of this prejudice. The moro ignorant the people remain the greater will be the success through its agency; and it is in consequence of this that we have determined to throw some light upon these subjects. It is but simple jus tice to the People's party that it be permitted to ...

7 TEED TOE VAGRAHOY. The Ootirt Listens to a Campaign Pros perity Speech. Ha wasn't the worst looking (el low in the world. But if you were looking for a prosperous mm, judg ing from appearances, you would hardly selaot him as being a fair representative of that numerous class of day laborers who have bank accounts. Neither would you kick him out as a man who made his living by his wits. No, he was simply one of that numer ous class known as victims of overpro duction, and bore on his person all the signs of hard work and adversity. But the police had been watching him. They had seen him loafing around for several days with no visible means of support, and that morning they had pulled him in and he was now before the court charged with "vagrancy." A charitably inclined attorney had in terested himself in tho case and had set up as a defense the plea that it was a case of enforced idleness, and that the man was idle, not of choice, but of necessity. He had pleaded that the man's bein...

3 THE ABVOOATB. EAILE0AD3 AID OOUBTS. Damaging Pacta and Pigmes From the Eacoid of the Northwestern Beceiver ship Editor Advooath: There is a feeling against certain methods pursued by railroads in this country, and some peo ple even entertain a feeling against the courts by reason of their apparent wink ing at the evil methods of the railroads. There are those among us who think that railway corporations, creatures of the state, have become masters of the state and robbers of the people. And there are those among us who entertain a strong suspicion that courtsespecially the federal courts, those alleged fount ains of justice have become servants of the corporations, finding their chief duty in farthering the aforesaid mas tery and robbery. And why not believe these things? I have a case in point. It ii not an isolated case. It is one of many. Its features do not differ from the features generally of cases in its class. It is es sentially a typical case. I must give you a pen pictur...

WHAT MAT HAPPE3T. (Continued from page t) scores of hero-worshipped names to con jure with. Democracy haa none to compete with McKinley,Roed or Lincoln. A national campaign is largely a matter of shouting, hurrah and manufactured enthusiasm over the personnel of the presidential candidate. Inthia line re publicanism ia opulent, and democracy is poverty stricken. True, there are conspicuous and admired leaders in the democratic party, but the sectional line and the Tammany tiger cnt into the unanimity of sentiment necessary to harmonize hurrahing. It follows, then, as the night the day, that the republican party will be the machine which the gold bugs will aid in the next presi dential campaign. It will be the chosen instrumentality of capitalism and mon opoly for the next presidential term. It is, however, by no means written in the book of fate or told by the stars that either of the old parties will win in 1896. The people may take a hand in the game and checkmate goldbuggery and ...

THUS jfUDVOOjTS. 11 Thoughts of a Young Man. Editor Advocate: If this article chance to be read by a young man who feels as the writer once felt, '. that he lived one generation too late in his na tion's history to catch inspiration from personal contact with great and noble men working seemingly against fate in a grand movement for the elevation of mankind, let that brother look around him and see the suffering of the masses as they seek in vain for work. Let him enter the highways and byways of life and study well the lesson that he there may learn. Lst him go to our towns and cities and hear the tramp of mil lions of enforced idlers as they congre gate in these centers and ask for work that they need not starve. Then let him ask himself in ail solemnity what all this means and what relation he sustains to the cause of all this distress. Think you, when he comprehends the suffering of the millions of his brothers, when he sees the hollow eyes of women and children as they watch th...

12 WEBB ADVOCATE. GEEAT PEOELE'3 SOLVED By Getting at the Bottom Principles ca "Which They Are Based- NO. IV. Editor Advocate: The bankin;: sys tem of our country ia a notable example in point. How many are constantly protecting that they can't fathom the secrets of banking nor understand the national bank scheme. And how few do really understand it; and only because they don't think themselves able to com prehend such this?s, and, therefore, don't try to understand it. Yet it is one of the simplest devices of man, as well as one of the moat affective for feather ing the nests of the shrewd and cunning who live off the sweat and toil of their fellow beings. And these (the shrewd and cunning) are interested in keeping this fact from their viotims, and there fore pretend to a wonderful sleight of hand in the exercise of their craft, and involve it in intricacies and perplexities on purpose to confound the common mind. Therefore, men, as in other cases supposed to be too complicated fo...

Anarchy or Evolution. Editor Advocate: I have always been opposed to the use of the word an archy as a synonym for millennium. In the sec 88 in which scientific anarchists use the word they mean millennium, or that future perfect state of society where love is law; where there can be no statu tory law because no demand for it. A statute is either a mandamus or a pro hibitionthere are none to command and none to prohibit where love is law. To return good for evil is a high ideal, but where love is law a still higher ideal obtains, and, as there is no evil, the rule will be to return good for good, which is millennial aanarchy. Probably three-fourths of mankind understand anarchy to mean unbridled license, all restraint being thrown off so that each "brave" can wade in on his muscle in true cow-boy style; where each hog will be a "hustler," and with muscle and cunning will root every other hog out of the trough and monopolize the swill, as shylocks now da It is be cause of this misund...

Within thia time the sturdy husbandmen discovered there was something wrorg in existing social and financial conditions. An era of education commenced ; secret organiza tions were established and spread over tha agricultural ccmmunity,co operation and association cheered and lightened their burdens for awhileignoring the ballot as a means of escape frrm corpo rate greed, no universal improvements was maintained. Thus it gradually dropped into decay. Almost simultaneously with this, was the Knights of Labor and kindred organ izations for the benefit of the great army of mechanical employes. They banded together, thinking to throw off industrial bondage by strikes and compromise. They mutually contended and fought the battle of corporate greed and arro gance, but each year found themselves more in the grasp of avarice. Farmers, too, seeing the last vestige ...

5 HEBE 13 A DAHDY. The Lyndon Journal makes the following statement and the Atchison Champion of January 27 repeats it: An exchange says tha editors of Kansas are aaking for a search warrant for rebel Col. W. A. Harris, who defeated a loyal ooionel, Geo. T. Anthony, for congress. They need not worry about "where he is at." If they will look at the record of his Tot s in oongress it would be found with the solid Booth rebel end of his party for repeal of the Sherman bill by which $50, 000.000 a year was taken from the cur rency. . Now, that's a fine statement for re publican editors to make, isn't it Is there a putty head in Kansas who does not know that the record of the votes in congress is directly the re verse of what is here stated? Is there one so dumb as to believe that the editor of the Lyndon Journal and the editor of the Atchison Cham pion did not know that the state ment respecting that vote was false when they published it?

It is a sad comment upon otur civi lization that with all hia remarkable native ability and acquired accom plishments he died a poor man. In politics he despised self-seeking, and hence was seldom thought of as a possibility m connection with a pub lic trust. In business affairs he did not possess the peculiar kind of tal ent that is essential to marked suc cess under our modern business system. His sterling honesty held him aloof from all questionable and speculative enterprises. His work was largely a labor of love. He was a unique character, and one that will be gireatly missed.
