THE ADVOCATE. 13 STILL HABOHISG Off. (Continued from pagt I.J the new republic, call a session of con greaa and withdraw peacebly if possible, but if force is necessary the west is just as well equipped as the east and will be able to fight its own battles, r The letter advises that its views are co incided in by leading men in twenty wes tern states, and the signers believe that secession is the solution of the labor, silver and the western problems. Single-Tax and Finance. Editor Advocate: It does seem to me that some of our single-tax advo cates become single idea people, or, in other words, unwilling to justly consider with due justice any other issue. Such an attitude, in my humble judgment, will never solve questions of monu mental importance. Mr. Wakefield declares in his last article that "Mr. Fierce and others attribute depressions to contractions of the currency, but the facts do not sustain this theory." "The panic of 1837 occurred with more than the usual volume of money...

14 THE ADVOCATE, Socialism and Anarchy. Editor Advocate: It is amusing sometimes to see the ingenuity men will display in trying to avoid work. And this is just as true of intellectual work as of manual labor. They are al ways ready to compromise the differ ence between truth and error, rather than work it out. If two propositions are made which, on their surface, ap pear antagonistic, rather than to make such a thorough study of the subject as to enable them to comprehend their full import, and so sift the false from the true, they quote an "old Latin adage" that, "the truth lies between the two extremes," and then proceed to harmonize things. A good illustration of this is fur nished in a communication from W. II. T. Wakefield, on the above subject, which was published in the Advocate of March 21. He assumes that social ism and anarchy are "inconsistent theories," and then hopelessly mixes up the two with state regulation and in dividualism in a way to confuse an ex pert. I will t...

Will Kansas Lend a Helping Hand "To Save the Nation's Soul Alive?" Washington Correspondence. It is no looser a question aa to whether or not Mr. Coxey's Common wealera will come to Washington. They are coming; and the question now ia what sort of reception will they have. The police force is being increased, and the militia "street riot drill" goes on, and the police officials persist in their determination to treat the commonweal era as vagrants. There will be a mass meeting of citizens Saturday evening to make preparations for a friendly recep tion, for despite the hostile tone of the two prinoipal daily papers, and notwith standing the fact that the police officers have roused the fears of citizens lest the "mob following the army" may com mit depredation?, there ia much favor able sentiment, and very general in sistence that the commonwea...

Man's Inhumanity to man Makes countless thousands mourn. Burns. Sam Cotterell's life hung by a fragile thread. At first Dr. Carlington be lieved the old man's spirit had left its weary mortal tenement forever; but he liked Kate, and knowing how she loved her father and how the news of his death would smite her, the Doctor, who pitied, also, the moaning wife, put forth with unusual vigor and persever ance every means his science knew for restoring suspended animation; and ob serving at last some faint but unmis takable signs of vitality, he spoke for the first time since he had begun his examination, and spoke hopefully: "1 think likely that snow-drift saved him; but it was a close call." At these words, Mrs. Cotterell sprang instantly to the Doctor's side; for she understood that they meant h...

As they walked away, the Doctor said to the attorney, who was profanely mad: "That decision was good Kansas re publicanism.

t THE ADVOCATE, FROM WASHINGTON (Continued from page 1.) assets were far less than now. Now let "direct legislation" demand in thunder ous tones that the machinery in this bureau of printing and engraving shall set to grinding out money to employ labor and create wealth, instead of grind ing out bonds to support idlers and take toll of labor. Let this demand ba made of the present congress. The people are too hungry to wait patiently for a new set of eervants to be elected. If the de mand is made loud enough, and by good people irrespective of party it is not so certain that this congress will refuse to pass a "good roads" bill. Here are some of my reasons for the above statement. Not all of the mem bers of this congress are retained by cor porations; only a small proportion. Not all of the members of this congress are dishonest men; the majority I believe are men of integrity, but they nave been hitherto helpless in the machine. Most of the congressmen desire to be re elected, and ...

6 THE ADVOCATE. THE CHURCH. In another column will bo found a communication from a Sterling, Kan sas, correspondent protesting against abnse of the church by Populist speakers and writers. There is a great deal of justice and good sense in the criticisms of this writer which it will be wise to heed. It may be safely affirmed that no opponent of any cause was ever induced to change his opposition to approval by abuse. One of the mistakes of republican and democratic editors and politicians has been in the abuse and insult of honest men who have forsaken those parties and become Populists. No self-respecting person who has been subject to the misrepresentation and abuse that have been heaped upon all Populists will ever, under any circumstances, think of rejoining the parties from which that abuse proceeds. Men must be won to the support of any party or any measure by such an ap peal to thetr reason and judgment as will satisfy them of the correctness of the principles involved. This ...

THE ADVOCATE. 7 ATCHISON COUNTY BXPUBLICANS. The platform adopted by the Atchison county republican conven tion April 16, like all republican and democratic platforms, is constructed for the deception of voters. Its declaration upon the financial ques is a meaningless jumble of words put together in such a way that it may be interpreted to suit the variety of tastes of different localities and indi viduals. It is perfect nonsense to talk of the "coinage of gold and sil ver mines of the United States into legal tender coins upon such a ratio as to pseserve their parity of values, without inflation for the benefit of the speculator in farm produce, or gold or stocks, nor a contraction for the use of bond-holders at home or abroad." Anybody with a thimble ful of brains knows that every dollar coined by the government, without regard to the material of which it is composed, will always remain at a parity with every other dollar, so long as the government itself does not discriminate aga...

The apportionment ia two dele gates at large from each county and one more for eaoh 350 of the avarage vote on secretary of state for 1890-'92, making a convention of 612 delegates. NOTE8. Monday evening's Washington News reports Jerry Simpson bo ill that his re covery is considered doubtful. The state central committee is in ses sion in Topeka for the purpose of fixing a date for the state convention.

10 THIS ADVOCATE. Church and Politics. Editor Advocate: I desire to enter my protest against the unjust and nn visa, not to Bay abusive, treatment "the church" is ' receiving from Populist speakers and newspapers. Churches are characterized as ban da of thieves and rubbers. Ministers are called pulpit mountebanks and the most abusive epi thets that find their way into Populist speeches are most heartily applaud d If these utterances are to be believed, the church is utterly corrupt and ought to be swept from the face of the earth. Notwithstanding the fact that outside the larger towns and cities, the churches are invariably poor, they are charged with turning the cold shoulder to the poor, and by their action saying, "The poor are not wanted." Another fact la entirely ignored: A majority of church members is com posed of women, and minora, destitute alike of political privileges and duties. Still another is, that a great many church members are active reformers. And yet not the slig...

,12 TPIIi ADVOCATE. IHDIGMTIOJT. (Continued from pagt 1.) the women proposed to go to the tram ferand take a train the march was quickly started in that direction. At the transfer an effort waa made to take a fast mail engine but it flashed in the pan. Then, when the men seemed ready to quit again, one young woman who stood by a group of Union Paoiflo en gineers said: "If I waa a man I'd have an engine." This was all that was needed. A big Union Paoifio bridge engine, No. 12S8, was standing there. Veteran Engineer Niak Weeks had his head out of the window. "Papa, you'd better get down." He looled around. There stood his stalwart son, George Weeks, also a Un ion Paoifio engineer. On all sides of the engine were men and women, climbing on wherever they could get hold. "Papa" got down' In a few minutes the men had ten bridge engines and were busily searching the yards for empties. Finally they were found and were soon on 11 eir way to Weston, n Kelly's army was anxiously awaiting for r...

THE ADVOCATE. In the Field. Editor Advocate -.Last week I com pieced a trip with President Hanna and Alonza Wardall through a majority of the counties in the Sixth congressional district, and I wish to cay, to take them aa a whole, there are more real live Pops in that district than in any of the sixty three counties of the state in which we have been. We never found a man up there but who was determined to win io this great fight for the common people. They are all anxious to "send out the light" Not a man in the whole district but who is willing to sacrifice his own personal interest or ambition for the welfare of the party, from a national, state or county standpoint, and not only that, but they are good organizers. Especially is the organization good in Jewell, Smith, Osborne and Thomas counties. Some of the county officials are doing the same effective work as is being done by the officials of Kingman county. It would pay if some of our county officials in ether parts of the st...

It was counted very noble When he killed off everything That came in 'twlxt him and glory; That's too savage for to-day, Men have grown refined and cultured, And have learned a better way. No, they don't let out the heart's blood At one stab: they take it slow, With a scientific fineness, So the victim will not know That they cap his heart's blood surely, Make his pulse beat high or low ; For finance Is like a faucet. Can be turned on fast or slow. Time, heredity and habit, Three unchanged and fearful fates, That wind off with steady fingers What environment creates.
