THE ADVOCATE. '13 Juggling With Figures. Edward Atkuaeon ia the statistical champion of the monay power, and if a premium vers offered for making figures ceeraisgly lie, by illogical anduowar ranted deductions, he would easily win it. Apart from his reputation as a ma nipulator of statistics, he has won some notoriety by tracing the increase of des titution among the laboring classes to a waste in cooking. In an article on "Farm Mortgage Sta tistics," in the Forum for May, Mr. At kinson exercises his peculiar ability in making the best possible showing for debtor farmers, by an unusual sacrifice of candor, and then takes the extraordi nary position that the more farmers owe, the better they are off. The comparative increase of farm mortgage debt within a given time is the true measure of agri cultural prosperity. The farm indebted ness, which increased 156 per cent, during the last census decade, while population increased less than 25 per cent, indicates thrift and was a "pro gress...

The most serious outbreaks re cently are in the mines of Colorado and Illinois. The trouble at the Cripple Creek mines is alarming:. There are a great many more men than the mines oould supply with work at any price, and the operators, taking advantage of this condition, are trying to squeeze their men down to a lower rate of pay or make them give up their places to non-union miners.

THE ADVOCATE. THE MONEY POWEK. It Has Confidence In Nothing Bat the Two Old Parties. Editor Advocate: The position assumed in a previous article was that the present unsavory condition of gen eral business affaira came up out of an antecedent unsound condition of the farmer's affairs, and that there can be no permanent and substantial improve ment in general affairs, unless there be first an improvement in the farmer's affairs where the whole trouble began. The truth of this position is denied by the upper stratas of business society. And doubtless they are honest in the opinion that the present trouble began with them, for they are so bound up in their own interests, so thoroughly im pressed with their own importance in the body politic, and have so little knowledge of the farmer's affairs and so great contempt for him as an element in the business world, that they think the world circles 'round about the upper stratas, and that the farmer especially ought never sneeze until those ...

THE ADVOCATE, 3 money power. These securities the money centers and sections alone have, and on them money may be had at nominal interest. What the average man has to offer as "collateral" is his farm and city property or his best friend, and on them he may possibly have money at 10 or 12 per cent. I re peat that the money sections and cen ters alone have a currency; the people have none; and the currency the money power has is made a compress by which the average man is pressed dry as a chip, his property and products taken at nominal prices, his land taken on mortgage, leaving him sitting out, high and dry, stranded on nothing. Xow, what the people want is a cur rency. "What they demand of the old parties is that they give them a cur rency or vamoos the ranch. They de mand the unlimited coinage of silver, since that will be to some extent an in crease of currency placed beyond the control of the money power, and which, therefore, may possibly be ob tained on living conditions.

0 07X223 ADVOCATE, a new Bcums. A scheme is on foot to increase newspaper postage. A bill is now ponding in congress for that purpose, and petitions are being circulated asking for its passage. Eastern papers say that two classes of people fa the East are signing these peti tions. First the merchants, bankers and business men, who want letter postage reduced to 1 cent, and sec ond the politicians, who fear the rapidly-increasing influence of the reform press, and who know that the increase of newspaper postage will swamp a large portion of the reform papers now published The iniquity of the scheme, like all other devil ment that has been done by the na tional congress in the past thirty years, is sought to be disguised by a seeming benefit to the people. In this instance the seeming benefit is the reduction of letter postage. "Who would this benefit? There is no dSubt that the merchant, the banker and the business man whose letter postage amounts to many dollars per week, and in not...

LET U3 GET AT THX PACTS. The Atchison Champion of May 23 undertakes to answer the editorial in the Advocate of May 16, but makes a very bad mess of it. Beferring to our charge that the republican party in 1862 made discriminations in favor of foreign and domestic gold owners by discrediting its own money, it says: Tho Advocate seems to forget that such an issue was a "military necessity." The Advocate does not forget that the issue of paper money was a "military necessity." It is not the is sue of the money that we object to, but that in issuing it the stamp of discredit was placed upon it without which the gold-owners of Europe and America could not have made it sub ject to speculation. Will the Cham Dion be kind enough to tall us what was wrons? with the 60 millions of demand notes first issued by the gov ernment, and why all the paper money necessary for war purposes could not have been of like charao ter? These, when first issued, were not a legal tender for anything, and the pa...

THE ADVOCATE, 11 Signs of the Times.
