VOL.VI.NO. 88. $1.00 A TXLA.lt. MARTIAL GOVERNMENT. A LITE AND DEATH STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE MONEY POWES AND ORGANIZED LABOR. The Eagle's Scream and Fourth, of July Oratory Mingled With the Clash of Resounding Arms. All week excitement incident to the great railroad strike has been growing mora intense throughout the country, and the number of striking employes has increased. Naturally the storm cen ter was at Chicago, and toward that place all eyes have been turned day and night. There the country haa Been com merce almost at a stand still, while the labor union organizations and the rail road managers defiantly stood face to face, each waiting for the other to weaken in the fight. There in Chicago we have seen the police force, deputy sheriffs, state militia, United States troops, and even the courts, called into serv ice for the ostensible purpose of pro tecting the rights of the citizens, but for the real purpose of intimidating the workingmen and assisting the corpora tions. And w...

3 THE ADVOCATE. A DAY OF SUFFB1G2. . The Pro and Con of the Sofflrige Question, i. Belated by Our Con Healy. Communicated. The political pot that had been sim mering away, without ever entirely cooling off since November last, reached the boiling point last Satur day morning, and before noon it was sizzling and blubbering and slopping over at a fearful rate. The fuel that was the cause of the sudden rise in temper ture was the woman's suffrage plank in the Populist platform, and the cloud of steam and smoke that it sent up entirely hid from view every other issue. The air was full of woman's suffrage. The man who attempted to talk silver at If) to 1, or 30 to 1, or to """advocate free coinage subject to inter national agreement, was choked off, and the fellow who dared to open his mouth to discuss free trade and pro tection was suffocated in short order, while the railroad transportation advo cate was gagged black in the face if he attempted to breathe a word about freight rates.

Comments on Leweliing's Interview ou the Pulhuaa Strike.. Editor Advocate: He is reported as saying: "So far as the Pullman company is concerned I have no sym pathy for it and so far as I have ob served nobody has who has ever been a victim of its voracity. It is a para site which lives off the corporations and thejtraveling public and compels its porters to pillage its patrons that they may live. It seems to be the de sire of the company that their porters should derive their subsistence that way. It is ridiculous to the honest mind that a corporation, grown so rich as it has, and by such means as it has employed, should attempt to deprive its honest and industrious employes of their means of a living." Is not the above a correct statement of conditions that obtain on Pullman cars as verified by the experience of the traveling public? If so what in terests have the common, people in holding up the hands of a corporation that now seeks to destroy the force and influence of organized...

THE ADVOOATH. 6 publio dooumenta. Every morninj, for three months, the presentation of these memorials, wtia speeches to enforoe them, was the oooupution of eaoh house; all the memorials bearing the impress of the same mint, and the lorationa generally east after the same pattern. How like .the proceedings of the special session of 1893, when cords of memorials for the repeal of the Sher man law were presented and dis posed of in the same manner. The record continues: Mr. Benton replied to these distress peti tions and distress harangues by shoving that they were nothing bat a reproduction, with change of names and dates, of the same kind of speeches and petitions which were heard in the year 1811, when the char ter of the first national bank was expiring, and when General Jackson was not presi dentwhen Mr. Taney was not secretary of the treasury when no deposits had been re moved, and when there was no quarrel be tween the bank and the government, and he read copiously from the con...

THE ADVOCATE 0 i TEE GREAT STBIKE. For unmixed gall, and cool, calcu lating cruelty, the late circular of Banker Clews is seldom surpassed. It deserves the widest circulation, as it clearly indicates the absolute heart lessness and cold-blooded depravity of the controlling classes in this coun try. With them the margins upon stocks, bonds and merchantable se curities are of far more importance than the liberties of men or their ability to obtain food for themselves and families. Little comment is nec essary respesting so infamous a docu ment It is so shocking to every hu mane impulse that it will carry its own condemnation to the heart of every person who has not become brutalized by the worse than bar barous conditions by which we are surrounded. The following is what he says under date of July 2: The railroad strike is not by any means an unmixed misfortune. It will raise ques tions and lead to ehanzes which the strik ers seem to hare little anticipated. The roads have long felt t...

THE ADVOOATE. 7 THE TOPEKA CAPITAL'S PROVERBIAL "CUSSEDNESS." The railroad strikers of the Ameri can Railway union held an open meeting at Metropolitan hall in this city, July 3, afternoon and evening, not only the large body of railroad men with their families, bnt likewise a great many citizens of Topeka were glad to be present and mani fest their sympathy with the men engaged in the great strike. In addition to the speakers belong ing to the A. It. U. who addressed the meeting Mrs. Diggs had been in vited to speak, and most gladly availed herself of the privilege. Newspaper reporters were accorded the privilege of being present and re porting the proceedings. A reporter of the Capital was there among otners, ana made a report which was published on the morning of the Fourth. This was generally fair and correct; but the pin-headed fool graduate of Harvard who thinks he writes editorials for the paper deliv ered himself of the following: Mrs. Diggs worked the A. R.

THE ADVOCATE. CONCERNING KANSAS. NOTES. F. Jonea, the leading merchant tailor of Emporia, has publicly announced that ha will vote the Populist ticket. Kansas is short on government troops. Forta Riley and Leavenworth have been drawn on for soldiers to kill strikers. The democratic state convention didn't propose to waste any time nominating eenators, as one delegate wanted to do. Nathan Cree, a delegate from Wyan dotte county to the late democratic state convention, has joined the People's party. Republican papers are still quoting Crazy Chenault, of Fort Scott, aa being diasatiafled with the Populist platform. Most Populists are glad of it. The most benighted place in Kansas ia Garland, Bourbon county. The three prsachera of the town are opposed to suffrage. That place needs missionaries John S. Richardson, of the Wichita B a aeon, was made chairman of the dem cratio state committee. If there ia any good in the committee John ia just the man to make good use of it. The striking ra...

THE ADVOCATE 0 again demand a resubmission of the pro hibitory amendment to the vote of tha electors of the oommonwealth, believing that eiperienoe from year to year sinoe ita adoption has demonstrated that it was the work of folly and fanaticism that it has not, in the slightest degree, lessened the evils of intemperance and has beon'the fruitful parent of fraud, bribery, perjury and official corruption, and in lieu thereof we favor a system of high license and local option and demand the repeal of the in iquitous Jaws paased for the purpose of carrying into practical effect the purpose and intent of said amendment. Fifteenth We oppose woman suffrage as tending to destroy the home and family, the true basis of political safety, and ex press the hope that the helpmeet and guar dian of the family sanctuary may not be dragged from the modest purity of self imposed seclusion to be thrown unwillingly into the unfeminine places of politioal strife.

If an old resident ef Shawnee county had been bo journing in strange lands for the last year or two, and during his ab sence had no means of keeping posted as to the political sentiment which lies beneath the surface of society if such a person had suddenly returned on July 12, he would have been dumb founded on seeing the changes that have taken place. He would have been more surprised than Rip Van Winkle was on returning to the village after his twenty years' nap, yet if he was patri otic he would have been cheered by what greeted his eyes. The capital of Kansas was that day the scene of a colossal Fopulist rally, a grand gathering of the people, occa sioned by the announcement that it would be a ratification of the aotions of the late People's party state conven tion.
