THE ADVOCATE. 0 A Scandinavian Philosopher. Editor Advocate: I find in the August cumber of the Cosmopolitan magazine an article on Bjornsterne Bjontson that is such straight People's party doctrine and bo well put that I am sure most of your readers would be glad to see it It is worth committing to memory sa a general statement of existing conditions. As a poet and novelist he is widely known, but few are aware that he is as actively engaged in politics as in litera ture. All his life he has bees a fighter for the liberties of the people of Nor way. In 1880-81 he spent nearly a year in this country, and to a fellow country man expressed himself as follows: "You may squirm aa much as you please, but the fact cannot be blinked that to socialism in some shape or other belongs the future. The present crude theories which the justly discontented of the earth are propounding are only significant aa the first serious agitation of the greatest of problems. "It is so pleasant to think that ...

THE ADVOCATE. II VIYID RECOLLECTIONS . Continued from pag$ 7. newed vigor and increased heat, and our face took on their distressed frowns again. I saw the man who had figured on the profits of wheat raising glance sheepishly down at his estimated boot, and then cautiously, as 'though afraid of being seen, he lifted the other foot, and bringing the toe of his boot arond, he rubbed the figures oat. Just then our attention was attracted by the emell of fire, and glancing hurriedly around we saw a cloud of smoke rolling up from the south. The lightning had struck the ground and set the prairie on fire. For the remainder of that day and most of the night the whole neighbor hood fought the prairie fire. A week from that time I left the claim. For ten years I had clung to theories in opposition to hard, dry facts, but when the lightning set the prairie on fire and burned up sheds, stables, pasture, and puny wheat stacks forme on the second day of August my faith in the climate -changing t...

THE ADVOCATE A VICIOUS PROPOSITION. CmlirvMi from pagt 1. may be dona 'from time to time,' and can be 80 nicely ad jus tad that the 'olaesea' and corporations can be tried by their friends, and political and social prisoners may be tried by a jury packed by the court. It is customary in crim inal trials for clerks to say to the jury when eworn, 'the defendant now places himself upon his country, whioh country you are.' "Should the bill pass the house this feature of the forms would have to be dispensed with or changed. The clerk would say: 'The prisoner now places himself upon you whom the court be lieves to be men of quality and affairs, and by whose grace you are permitted to try this cause.' "Of, the many "devices invented to pack juries in state trials in Ireland, nothing quite so ingenious and effeotiva was ever devised. In an interview in the Boston Herald, March. 13, on the bill to establish a jury commission a bill with the same object in view as the one passed by the senate...

MOST 8TABTLEJG! Tha Senate's Modesty Has Eeen Shocked By Attempts at Bribery. Washington, May 18. The senate did not dare investigate the charges made some weeks ago to the effect that certain senators were speculating in sugar trust stock, but it passed a resolu tion yesterday to investigate alleged at tempts at bribery. This ia looked upon us a piece of juvenile bravery. Such an investigation can now be made without implicatisgjany senator, while the inves tigation proposed by Senator Peffer, if made at that time, would have stirred up the animals in great shape. The resolution passed yesterday ia: Whibxas, It has been stated in the Son, a newspaper published in New York, that bribes have been offered to certain senators to induce them to vote against the pending tariff bill; and Whxbias, It has also been stated in a signed article in the Press, a newspaper published in Philadelphia, that the sugar schedule has been made up as it now stands in the proposed amendment in considera t...

John was to be Mason's best man, and Kate had obliged him to "fix up" in what seemed to him an extravagant style for a man who was only going to help another man get married, Dut she insisted that as a young lady friend of hers from llisington was to be brides maid, she wished him to make as good appearance as possible. We all know how women, and especially young women, are about such things. But another reason had made J...

THE3 jDVOOjSlTS. 5 OUB BTOBY DEPARTMENT. This issoe contains the last chap terofour serial story, "The Dead Line," bnt it will be followed up with another story which we h will be equally as good, and which will be commenced within the next few weeks. "The Dead Line" will soon be put in pamphlet form and sold at a price within the reach of all. Wmw it is known that men refuse $2.7 for nine hours' work and strike for $3 and eight hoars, it is hard to work up any en thnsiasm or sympathy for them when they steal a train and rash toward Washington on a fool's errand. That's what these Colo rado fellows did, and all such lunatics should receive scant courtesy, that they may learn to know when they are well off in these hard democratic times. Oakaloosa Independent, May 19. And when it is known that this story is a republican he from start to finish, it indicates very clearly the brand of the sympathy of the aver age republican.

This is a case in which the wish is clearly father to the thought. No impartial observer who has heard the expressions of public opinion in To peka or witnessed the great gather ings of the people at the meetings called to express sympathy for this uprising of the workingmen; or who has read the resolutions adopted at those meetings, would make such a statement as the above if he expected to be believed.

7 WHY DON'T IDS F&OVB IT? Somebody has sent us a copy of the New Era containing an article marked, we suppose for our especial benefit, charging officials of cities of the first class in Kansas with licenc ing joints, gambling dens and bawdy houses, and putting the fees in their pockets. The article says: Levelling has ordered it. Briedenthal, Snow, MoLallia and a horde of other heart less wretches, feeding at Levelling'! bounty table, are oongtantly shouting "Amen!" Now, to begin with, we do not be lieve that this licence system pre vails; and it is wholly unnecessary to say that Lewelling has not ordered anything of the kind. It is farther unnecessary to say- that we should not shout amen to it if he did. Bat the one and only reformer in this material universe adds, in his very choicest English: These cowardly ears, lickspittles of mon opoly, the wreckers of virtue, and the de spoilers of homes of the people dare not meet as in fair debate before the people. They know we would...

Editor Advocate: 01 courts, meat know that all liberallj-educated and well-to-do foreigners, with few excep tions, coming to this country are con earvative and antidemocratic (of course, I use the word democratic in ita proper sense, and not aa a party designation). I fell in with one of the former, evidently of Scandinavian stock, some time since in traveling on the cars in Kansas, and from his locee and ready tongue tqok him for a drummer, or, more properly speaking, a commercial agent. Bat as he showed his well-used pass to the con dnotor, it occurred to me that he was a railroad man, and I so intimated to him. "No," said he, "I am president of a college in the interior of the state," when I expressed my surprise that he was so open and pronounced in his polit ical views, for he showed himself a ram pant adherent of the old republican dynasty of the state and an obvious prcselyter in it...

APolItlcal Grist. Editor Advocate: The most com pletely contradictory of all the political grists ground out for dcceptiye pur poses that I have ever read ia contained in the Forum for May. Ex-Governor Russell presents a defense of the Cleve land administration that is not only mis leading but false. In summing; up he says: "A year of democratic adminis tration can show as a worthy record: (1) Loyalty to ita main duty of repealing McKlnleyiam, reversing the tariff policy of the country, and making public, not rivate, interests ita fundamental prin ciple. (2) Placing the currency of the country upon a sound basis," etc The above is false in every statement ; When T waar MoKinleylsin repealed, cr when did the Cleveland administration even attempt to repeal said ism? When did this administration reverse the tariff policy of the oountry? When did this administration make publio and cot pri vate interests its fundamental principle? Was it when Grover Cleveland bribed members of congress ...
