Brook inridga bpoke here for two hours thia afternoon to an audience composed al most entirely of men. After he had con cluded fully 300 members of the Owens club, fifty of them women, filed into the room. This was a complete surprise to the Breckinridge people. Some of the women kept very near the door. Breckinridge spoke in his usual soft manner,and at each reference to thaSorip tures or to God, which was frequent, he would cast hia eyes up to the ceiling and pause a moment. He opened by refer ring to his life, using the past tense and saying that while there was much he would not have had occur, still he had never intentionally done aught to injurs any man. The sad, dark threads that run through every life had entered his. Ten years from this time those who were opposing him would wish thy had ...

Mr. JTcGann, Mmbtr of Congrats from Jllindi: The resolution submitted by you to the house of representatives for a com mittee to inquire into the depressed condition of the business and indus tries of the country, the movement of great masses of the unemployed towards the capital seeking relief and other cog nate questions, will entitle you to the chairmanship of that committee, should it be ordered, and therefore, I take the liberty of addressing you to suggest some considerations pertaining to the subjects embraced in such inquiry as may not occur to you in connection therewith.

And why is the unconstitutionality always sprung on proposals of substantial benefit to the masses, while a deep and discreet silence is preserved on measures' that inure entirely or chiefly to the benefit of the few, and they, the oppulent and wealthy? For example, recent dis patches from Washington announce that the department of state was col lecting information about essential oils used chiefly in manufacturing essences, perfumery and confection. Bigbusi ness for a great government to be en gaged in when starvation is abroad in the land. Avaunt, ye populace, who have come up to the capital seeking work and bread! Your government is busily engaged in the perfumery busi ness and can't give ear to your com plaints; on a par, though, with the head of the government off on a fish ing or shooting bout in times like these.

What is true of the state of New York in this respect is likewise true elsewhere. Not a state in the union whose political affairs are not pol luted by these pestilential influences. The money power and the rum power are abroad in the land, and they are abroad to control its affairs. Now, setting aside, for the time being, every other thought, consider ing alone the corrupting influence of this element in politics and its power in the control of public affairs both state and national, is the danger not sufficiently se...

0 THE ADVOCATE. IUISS TUX 8TJLVDA2D BHLD UPOIf 1 HIGHE3 PLAN. Any political party which is to en dure in the fatnro must necessarily recognize the great moral questions now uppermost in the minds of the people. In the present great up heaval, the public conscience has been awakened and no temporizing will satisfy it Instead of dickering for the support of this, that and thd other element by the artifices known to politicians and fixers, the party of the fnture must build upon so high a plane that the very best elements of society will be naturally drawn to its support by th , moral excellence of it principles. Men who are thus in financed by moral forces may al ways be relied upon, while the mer cenary voter can never be counted until his vote is in the ballot box. No party will ever rise higher than its platform, and psople have a right to jadga of the intentions and pur poses of a party by its platform dec larations. If therefore, a party con stantly ignores moral issues lest it l...

Natut, Boomtoum. Kas.: Dear Nephiw: Your query about my first name brings up a point in financial history that need not be published by the town crier. You have heard of that Cozey youngster called Legal Tender. Perhaps you have heard of negroes named Emancipation Proclamation, etc. These names are given in remembrance of something that interests the parents. I was born in 1853 when the financial world waa unsettled because of gold dis coveries. Gold had been discovered in California and in Australia. It was poured out in steady streams. Moneyed men were troubled lest it become too plentiful. The creditor class feared that it would continue to be mined and coined in such quantities as to make it easier for debtors to meet their obliga tions. It was depreciating when meas ured by silver.

8 CONCERNING KANSAS. NOTES. Lst everybody coma to the state con vention June 18. There la lots of room hers. The suffrage meeting at Beloit, June 1 and 2, was a remarkable success. Mitch ell county is always some where near the front. Thirty-eight students will graduate from the state agricultural college at Manhattan June 10. Most of them will engage in farming. There are several preachers in Kansas who think Christianity that won't mix with politioi is a fraud. J.D.Botkin seems to be one of that kind." " A prominent republican politician is authority for the statement that Morrill has agreed to put $20,000 in the state campaign. This explains why Martin and Ilach are not in it. The Russell county convention de clared for public ownership of publio utilities, for income tax, free coinage of silver and liberal pensions, and indorsed the administration of Governor Lewel ling.

Two companies of the commonweal army of peace reached Kansas City, Kas., yesterday and encamped there last night. One was the command of General Henry Bennett, of Denver.

THE. ADVOCATE, 11 have, in a series of articles is the Eclec tic Health Jouraal of this city, outlined a plan by which parties with very little capital can establish credit clearance cities under laws now in operation and soon bring about the same results. If the Coxey movement is strangled in its infancy, the adoption of the credit clearance system or the organization of credit clearance cities will become a matter of absolute necessity, or blood will flow in this boasted "land of the free," or industrial liberty will be an idle dream a problem for future govern ments to solve. S. T. Peet, M. D. To Thine Own Self Be True. Editor Advocate: Some men seem inclined to evade the question of woman suffrage in the coming campaign but no evasion can free the party of the charge of cowardice. A wrong that is fundamental is to be righted; it is a question of morality aa well as politics. A party that has no conscience is an un safe guardian of publio interests.

ADVOOATB; THE CONSUMPTION OF WH2AT. (Continued from page 6.) amounts to 3.68 bushels per capita. So large a difference indicates the great number of people who suffer, in this land of plenty, from insuffi cient food But there is another chapter to this sad story. In the Cyclope&o Review of Current History for the first quarter of 1894 is a treatise on "the business situation," in which the writer, after speaking of the general stagnation of trade and the con stant decline of prices, observes: "Perhaps the most significant feature of the situation has been the remark able shrinkage m the consumption of wheat" He then proceeds to show that the actual consumption for sev eral years past has been from 4.024 bushels per capita to 4.645 bushels. During the past year, however, the actual consumption has declined to 3.78 bushels per capita. "What does this mean? It means that more peo ple than usual have been deprived of the means to buy bread. As a result of the banker's panic and the ...

THE ADVOCATE. GETTING AWAKE. Blua-blooded Aristocracy Bfgifls to Beallze Our Condition. Editor Advocate: I know your readers will thank me for laying before them the following abstract of an ar ticle from the Forum of some months since, by a blue-blooded plutocrat, who sounds the alarm from afar and sum mons all concerned to speedy action to ward off the consequences that he sees looming up in the near future. The article is entitled "Menacing Socialism in the Western States," and is written in a fair and candid spirit that entitles it to respect. If initiated generally in that respect by writers on that side, political controversies would be vastly elevated and dignified as well as freed from the rubbLh'in which they are so" largely involved by picayunish editors and small politicians. He admits in the beginning that per sons and property are entirely safe in the West, and that everything is peace ful, orderly and quiet. In this he gives a very different version of the state, of th...

THE ADVOCATE 0 for corruption. Under our present constitution, in the beginning, our government was like a beautiful stream, bearing naught but sunshine upon its peaceful bosom. Like the mighty Mississippi which has its origin amid the beautiful lakes of the North, and flows for several hundred miles a pure, tranquil stream, but soon we reach the rapids, and passing through city after city the beauty and tran quility are lost in corruption. The - most noted tributaries of our system are the democratic affluent and the re publican branch. These two formed a very noted bifurcation, the former flowing toward England, the latter, for a time refreshing our own system. But some years ago the divide washed out, .. at which time they both began to flow together, so far as termination was concerned, trending to England. As the system to be drained becomes greater the stream of necessity grows larger, until it has become one of the most uncontrollable on earth. It has become so swift that it ...
