TI-HC AJDV'OC.A.TIS, 0 GRAND AND GLORIOUS. The Old-time Enthusiasm at People's Cam paign Meetings-lne Liveliest "Funerals" on Record. Special Correspondence. Washington, Kan.,. August 5. The third annual People's party rally of Washington county was held here yes terday and to-day, and It looked some times aa If this county had emptied all of its population Into Darby's grove, near this pretty town of Washington. A care ful calculation, however, will not bear out this view, for It must be remembered that large delegations came from Mar shall and Republic counties, while the highest calculation put the aggregate number on the grounds at 12,000; others estimated It at less. It was a magnificent gathering. As one of the speakers remarked, there was no use counting, but it was safe to say that there were ten acres of people. But the most remarkable feature about this meeting was the earner mess and determination of the people. Most of them came for miles through the heat and dust, not s...

That settled all questions of doubt and made It clear to'every one that they must or ganize, arm and fight for their liberties and their country, and they did. Events leading up to the late rebellion tell us practically the sameBtory. The oppressors again became the aggressors and forced the Issues of war.

TJ233 -AJDVOO-TiTIC. 11 PEOPLE'S PARTY NATIONAL PLAT FOBM. Assembled upon the one hundred and eixteenth anniversary of the declaration of independence, the People' party of America, in its first national convention, Invoking upon their action the blessing of Almighty God, puts forth, in the name and on behalf of the people of this coun try, the following preamble and declara tion of principles: The conditions which surround us best justify our coopera tion; we meet in the midst of a nation -brought to the verge of moral, political and material ruin; corruption dominates the ballot box, legislatures, congress, and toucheaeven the ermine of the bench. The people are demoralized; most of the states have been compelled to isolate voters at polling places to prevent uni versal intimidation or bribery.

THUS ADVOOAIla 7 CORRESPONDENCE. SOME LIES REFUTED. To the Editor of Ths Advocate. I see by the Capital of late date, that in ita promised campaign of education, our county and judicial district Is getting a full share of abuse and vilification, as far as the Peoples party la concerned. July 28 the Capital has a statement In regard to Judge Baehore, of Kingman, (by the way, whose residence Is In Pratt,) that the Judge was a farmer, had never studied law, and was elected on the plat form of "sock it to the railroads." It also charges, or infers, that in s case where Mr. Nolan, of Kiowa oounty, was plaintiff, and the Rock Island railroad company was defendant, the railroad was denied justice, and when Its attorney ex postulated with the court, the court re sponded with: "There are no files on this court." It also charges our present county clerk with inefficiency, and threatens to have some report he sent to the state auditor (no doubt doctored up for the occasion) photographed and ci...

The speaker from start to finish was greeted with contin uous rounds of applause. His address bristled with facts and figures, and his arguments were simply unanswerable, and to say that his hearers were pleased would be putting it exceedingly mild. They were charmed, enthused, edified and electrified. Such was the effect of Mr. Scott's telling words that the weak and wavering were stre...

Ernest Seyd (Bullion, page C31) as cribes the occasional higher prices of silver in London to the demands for the eastern trade, and adds that "on the con tinent silver has varied but little In price." Sir Isaac Newton, in 1717, treated much larger fluctuations In London, arising from the same cause, as of no im portance. In his report, then made as master of the mint, he determined the average price of silver in London to be 6i pence, and adds: When ih1p are lading for the ldst Indies, the demand of silver for exportation raises the price to 66 or 68 pence, or above, but I consider not those extraordinary cases. The sudden increase of the demand for silver in England in 1850, Is shown by the fact that British silver exports to the east rose from ,4,753,!)33 in 1858 to more than three times that amount in 1859.
