We are largely the debtors of Europe, a relation we do not occupy toward any other quarter of the globe. The aggre gate of our indebtedness, public and corporate, held there, is estimated to ex ceed $2,000,000,000, and is, on any com putation, an immenae sum. If it be taken at $2,000,000,000, the annual inter est must be fully $100,000,000. This is the minimum of the current estimates. It is not a tribute, in the odious sense of a contribution exacted by a sovereign or imposed by a conqueror, but in its financial effects does not differ from either, and there has never been any par allel to it in history, ancient or modern.

5 a donation as this, or indeed any donation from the public domain, for the purpose of establishing suoh homes? Mr. Biker: I am not informed of any other state having received a donation of this kind. Bat right wrongs no man. We contend that this bill is right in principle; thai the laws of humanity impose upon us the imperative duty of providing for this olas of persons. These soldiers oame in there and settled at the close of the war. To day, probably one-third of the population of Kansas are old soldiers, or very nearly that proportion. M. Outhwuite: la there any reason why the stae of Kanas should be preferred in this matter over other states? The state of Ohio hs a soldiers' home similar to this sustained by the state; it is also the fact that several other states have homes of ths kind; and none of these states have re ceived any donation from the general gov ernment m aid of suoh homes.

G TBI3 WILL NOT HOLD WATER. Dr. C. W. Maoune is oat in a lengthy let. tor to the Alliance and the publio generally giving his reasons for withdrawing from the supreme oaunoil at Memphis. He did not as supposed by many withdraw from the order, but merely withdrew from that meet ing. The doctor is an earnest, honest and faithful worker in the reform ranks, and if those " busy bodies" who have been so per sistently persecuting him for some time had done as much for the Alliance and its membership as he has, they would have had less ground for oomplaint. Brother Maoune ' announces his intention of still battling for Alliance principles, and those taking the National Economist for the next year may expect, and will reoeive, something good. People's Advocate, Ripley, Tenn., Decern ber9,1892. The statement that Dr. Macune did not withdraw from the order, but only from the council at Memphis, is abso lutely false, as every one who was present knows. But we do not have to rely upon the memor...

To the Reform Press: My attention has been culled to the false and misleading statements of Dr Macune in hia manifesto from Memphis, Tenn., November 20, and in hia open letter published in the National Econo mist December 3. While I regret its necessity, I feel it ray duty to repl, in the plainest of terms, as they allude to me personally. The statement that the executive com mittee of the People's party had a suite of rooms as headquarters on the parlor floor of the Gayoso hotel, and that we arranged a slate, established a lobby and controlled the action of delegates either at Indianapolis, St. Luis or Memphis, I brand as a malicious falsehood. Our committee had no headquarters, Mr. Taubeneck's room was on the floor above, two were used officially as Alii, ance headquarters, ore by a person un known to myself, and I occupied the re...

0 FOEOED TO TOHDBAW. Pittsbubq, December 16 -Referring to thf wholesale withdrawal of the Panhan die rail way conductors from the order of railway conductors, a conductor eaid: "It means just this: B along to the order and lost your job or leave the order and keep the job. By next May I don't expect to see a single con duotor on the road a member of the union.

It will be remembered that soon after the Homestead lockout, the Ad vocatk stated in an editorial upon the subject, that plutocracy has deter mined upon the extinction of organ ized labor in America. The Home stead lockout was the first effective movement on this line, and as a re sult of it the Homestoad mills will finally be operated by non-union men.

9 BAMBLDJO KSMABIS And Comments Concerning Leading Topics and Eecent Occurrences. The Kansas University glee and banjo club are still at large and will continue their tour of Kansas until after New Year; then they will go back to Lawrence and learn some new pieces. Benson, the Leavenworth murderer, cheated the gallows by committing sui cide. He was convicted of the murder of Mrs. Mettman, and as the crime was committed on a military reservation, he was sentenced to be hanged. Last Thurs day he attacked and wounded his guard with a knife, and then Btabbed himself to death. Stalwart Harris and J. B. Crouch (the man with the capacious mouth) have in vaded Cleveland's privacy, and no doubt made a strong impression as to their im portance in Kansas politics. Anybody who can make as much noise as these fellows did last campaign, with so little effect, certainly ought to be recognized by the new administration. Crouch was not known outside of his ward in Hutch inson before the stalwart mov...

10 MONETAE! COMMISSION (Continued from pane 3.) paper, or have become indebted by pur chases at paper prices, to liquidate their obligations in coin. It is not a good answer to this to say that if debtors suffer in this way now, creditors suffered in an inverse way fifteen years ago. The answer would be a better one if it could . be truly said, as it cannot be, that the debtors who are now to suffer are the same persons who made a corresponding gain fifteen years ago, and that the creditors who are now to gain are the same persons who then suffered a corre sponding loss. Anin justice to one class of persona is neither remedied nor com pensated by inflicting an injustice upon another class. The only ground upon which a resumption of coin payments can be juet:fled is that it is absolutely essential to the public welfare. If re sumption is demanded, it is by policy, and not by equity. No man's equities are impaired by a continuance of the present state of things. There is no holder of ...

11 A Great Soldier of Fortune. Jay Gould is dead. He will be re membered in history chiefly as an ex traordinary illustration of the facilities afforded by the present chaotic industrial system to the commercial soldier of for tune. The conquest of Mexico by Cor tez and the conquest of Peru by Pizarro, have figured large on the pa re of history; yet measured in actual cash secured these famous freebooters were in the baby class compared with Mr. Gould. Cortez and Pizarro started in to win backed by ships and steel-clad battalions. Gould started on nothing.

12 THE ABANDONED FARMS OF MAS SAOHUSETTS. Almost from the settlement of Ply mouth Rock and James river, the course of migration in this country has been westward. Over the Allegheny moun tains, across the valley of the Ohio, past the great lakes, across the Mississippi and the Missouri, along the plains, over the Rockies, and down to the coast of the Pacific, has this stream of humanity poured. Vast commonwealths have been formed; cities have been built; railroads and canals have been made; churches and schools have been founded; manufac tories of vast magnitude have been es tablished, and farms have been opened occupied and some of them abandoned, Whatever has been the order of the founding of institutions and industries in the opening of the new countries, the development of the farming industry has, in every case, boen attended with the privations and hardships of pioneering. But sustained with the hope and belief that, if not for themselves, at least for others, they were prepar...

13 AH ADDBESS. To Qjflcen and Mmbers of N. C I. A.: The election is over. The people have spoken. The proof is ample that the people can rule if they will. Democratic success is due to discontent and distrust under republican rule rather than faith in the democratic party. The November election was the alpha and omega the beginning of the People's party and the end of the republican party. As trophies of the recent conflict we have control of six states, have doubled our representation in congress, hold the balance of power in the United States senate, have over twenty electoral votes, count over a million popular votes, as seed sown broadcast over the land to spring up and bring forth an abundant harvest in the future. The principles which these votes represent are as eternal as the everlasting hills. Unless the incoming administration meets the issues of the day with fairness and firmness and gives the needed legis lation it will realize that the power that gave has power to take ...

14 "A Kansaa Honsa of Bepresentatives. Of the 125 members of the incoming house, forty have had previous service in the legislature of the state. The sixteen counties of Cheyenne, Grant, Gray, Greeley, Haskell, Kearney, Kiowa, Lane, Logan, Scott, Seward, Sher man, Stanton, Stevens, Wallace and Wiohita are for the first time represented in the house, and of the 106 counties in the state, only those of Garfield and Morton will be without actual representatives. The vote of Garfield at the late election was 171, and Morton polled 185 votes. Our republican friends are rejoicing over their gratifying gain that they im agine they have made in this great commonwealth; but going back to the year when the present national chief ex ecutive was elected, it might be in order to call attention to the remnant of "the grand old party" in Kansas, that, as compared with their majorities on repre sentatives this year with what they had in 1888, their loss in Doniphan county is 81; in Nemaha, 365; in ...

Steps Toward Nationalism, Tha state ownership of raiiw&yfl has teen tested in Germany for over forty years. At the Very begibniiig of railroad building (1835) the Prussian government in return for pecuniaiy aid, reserved to itself the right of control. In 1848 the government began to construct its own roads and to buy out others. In 1885, out of 11,000 miles of rail road, but 1,000 were in private hands, the rest in the hands of the government. In the last ten years the mileage has in creased 33 per cent, and the revenue (according to statistics just publihed) has increased 41 per cent, while in Eng land and France the mileage has in creased 10 per cent, and the revenue but 20 and 3 per cent, respectively. Moreover, it appears that the German lines are operated more economically than in either France or England, the net reve nue having increased 23 per cent, in Germany, 15 per cent, in England, and having slightly decreased in France dur ing the last ten years.

5 THE BEASOIT OF IT. Plymouth, Mich., Dacember 17, 1892. Dbab Sib Being a subscriber of ycur paper, I take the liberty of asking if you will state in your next issue why it is that bo few of the certificates of the Sherman act of 1890 are in circulation when it ia said so many are issued on the silver bullion pur chased. Very few are in circulation here and hare not been since the enactment. Enlightenment on this question would greatly oblige. The circulating medium ia ery scarce and times dull. Yours, F. Hall. The Advocate has already ex plained this matter several times. The facts were brought to light by the late Senator Plumb in the dis cussion of a resolution he introduced in the United States senate during the session following the adoption of the Sherman act. Daring this dis cussion it was ihown that the secre tary of the treasury, instead of issu ing silver certificates in exchange for the silver bullion purchased, gives his check upon the sub-treasury in New York.

IMPKOVEMEIT OF THP E7BLIO HIGHWAYS. We have been for some time past receiving numerous circulars, and marked copies of newspapers from all parts of the United States in which the improvement of the public high ways was very enthusiastically advo cated.- To all outward appearance this widespread agitation was the spontaneous outgrowth of a great .pubho necessity, and yet the very fact that the subject was taken up at about the same time in all parts of the coun try, and was favorably treated in the papers irrespective of party, tended to excite curiosity, if nothing more, in the mind of the reader as to the character of the prime motive behind it all. We have not thus far participated in this discussion, and, for some rea son, we have failed to imbibe any of the prevailing enthusiasm. We have been watching for developments and fully expecting that time would re veal the motive power behind this movement, and at last the light be gins to dawn. A few days ago a petition to con gress wa...
