THE ADVOCATE. 3 H03JETAST 00MESI03T. Report of the United States Monetary Commission, Appointed by Act of Con gress August 15, 1878. KO. XXXI. -i Money in shrinking volume the primal cause of the present universal commer cial and industrial depression con tinued ). That shrinking money and falling prices are the cause of existing evils, .was pointed out eight years ago by the London Economist, in its review (1869) of the previous financial year. It then said: It may be eafely affirmed that the present annual supply of thirty millions sterling 'of gold is no more than suffi cient to meet the requirements of the expanding commerce of the world, and prevent that pressure of transactions and commodities on the precious metals which means in practice prices and wages constantly tending toward de cline. The re8l danger is that the present supplies should fall off, and among the greatest and most salutary events that could now occur would be the discovery of rich gold deposits in three or ...

Some police court lawyer contrib uted an article to the Capital the other day in criticism of the gover nor's citation of the precedents which support the Populist contention.

THE ADVOCATE. 5 " A WEAK APOLOGY TOE A WEAK CAUSE. Representatives Douglass and Hoch make a waak attempt to reply to Governor Lewelling's statement of facts relative to the reoent events in the Kansas house of representatives. They first deny that the republican meetings held throughout the state have been addressed by corporation attorneys. We need occupy no space in the discussion of this question. The people in the localities where the meetings have been held know that the governor's statement is correct. "With reference to the organization of the house, these statesmen under take to vindicate their action by assuming the correctness of their views upon the very point in contro versy. They assume that certificates of election are prima facie evidence of-ihe right to seats, and the only evidence that can be considered prior to the organization. In reference to this matter they say: lb has been the universal oust om in this state, and is the accepted rule in parliamen tary bodies, ...

6 i THE ADVOCATE. POVEBTY AND SUFFERING IN CIN CINNATI. The Cincinnati Enquirer of Janu ary 17 devotes a whole page of nine long columns to a narration of the charities that are being bestowed in that city. The Enquirer itself is en gaged in a most commendable enter prise in having made arrangements to furnish coal to the poor at the low figure of $3 per ton, and too much credit cannot be given to the good people and the charitable institutions now engaged in feeding the hungry and furnishing them with some of the bare necessities which will enable them to perpetuate a miserable exist- " ence. Though these dispensations do not cure the disease, they do, in a measure, mitigate the immediate suf fering of the recipients. The En quirer has the following editorial paragraph which, notwithstanding its good work, seems to indicate a lack of comprehen ion of the real situation which its own columns reveal: - All outgoing stories to the effeot that the poor of Cinoinnati are either starving...

THE ADVOCATE. 7 Free Text Books. Editor Advocate: I have read with much care your able editorials upon the book question, and take this opportunity to write my earnest approval thereof. Having just retired from the office of county superintendent, and having spent the most of my life in school work, I consider that I know somewhat whereof I speak. The beet, the wise, the ad vanced solution of the vexed school book question at present seems to me to be, as I have privately and publicly advo cated for two years past, the creation of a state text book board, with powers similar to the boards in Ohio or Mis souri, which shall contract for several series of b'oks for the stite at certain prices for five years, with privilege of re ceiving the benefit of any farther reduc tion. Then our county uniformity law can be used in every county, provided some series adopted by the state board is used. Thus we secure the continued benefits of county uniformity and also cheapness, because of the sta...

Lawrence, Kas., January 21,1893. Editor Kansas City Times: In your paper of Saturday, under the caption "In the Wrong Place," is a criti cism of a communication of mine to the Lawrence Record which is somewhat misleading, from my point of view. As the Times, from the first, has always treated me so kindly and with so much fairness on all occasions, I shall regret to be misunderstood now. Unlike the Times, I approved the action of the dem ocratic state convention in nominating for state officers and electors the same men as had been nominated by the Pop ulists. My sympathies naturally be came enlisted to such a degree as to want fair play at the election. When the state board of canvassers met it was re ported in the press throughout the land that returns from one county were trans posed, giving the majority to the ca...

10 THIS ADVOCATE. HOHITAEY O0MMIS8IOJr. (Continued from page 3.) aggravated by selecting gold as the metal to be retained, and silver aa the metal to be rejected. The supply of gold is diminishing, being now but little more than half what it was in 1852, and is always so fit ful and rrregular from the method of its production that it is ill suited to be a sole measure of values. Placer-washings require little or no capital, and are soon exhausted. Stiver, on the other hand, is fountl in veins which extend to great depths, the development of whioh can neither be commenced without capital nor abandoned without the loss of heavy investments. Its production is, there fore, comparatively steady and perma nent, and it is this steadiness in the production of silver, together with the vast stock in use as money throughout the world, which is the moderator of the fluctuations of gold, and which, during the sudden and enormous additional supplies of gold since 1818, saved the commercial world...

THE ADVOCATE. 11 Homo and Farm Mortgages. Editor Advocate: Three years ago the Western Economic Association, of St. Louis, appealed to the voters of the United States to petition congress to have the eleventh census show the mort gage indebtedness and tenure of farms and homes, the argument being that such an inquiry would tend to giye the ratio of the distribution of wealth. The investigation is nearly finished, and it will have the percentage of owned and rented homes and farms in every city and county in the United States. Enough data have already been published to predict a most startling showing. Briefly stated, three-fourths of the city popu lations live in rented houses, and in some cities and states it runs as high as 90 per cent. Of the remaining fourth, one half own their homes, but under mort gage to their full credit value; that ie, they are virtually tenants. This means that under the industrial feudalism, now developing, seven-eighths of our city pop ulation are liable...

Senator Householder, chairman of committee on rules, reminded them that the rule re ported by the committee was the same always used in the Benate, and that a previous question moved by five senators did not put off debate any sooner than if moved by two. Of course the amend ment was lost. The forenoon was spent in consideration of the report. Saturday was a short day, the senate adjourning early in order that the sen ators might go home, as many of them did. The forenoon was mostly given up to the election committee's report. Sen ator Thacher made a strong plea for mercy from the minority side, arguing that might was not always right, and picturing to them the danger of begin ningto throw out minority members without just cause.

THE ADVOCATE. 13 EX-GOVERNOB EOBINSOH SPEAKS. Letters to the Lawrence Record I notice a great hue and cry in the state over the organization of the legisla ture, in which have been invited to join. It is reported that meetings are to be called throughout the state to de nounce certain actions of the governor and the two houses of the legislature Evidently there is to be an attempt to bulldoze somebody and influence the state government by popular clamor. And why all this rumpus? Simply be cause the governor and legislature pro pose to organize and discharge their duties in their own way, subject to the constitution of the state and their oaths of office. But, it is said, they have disregarded a certain regulation of a previous legisla ture, and ignored the certificates of cer tain officials. Grtmt it Such a course may have been demanded by the consti tution. That instrument savs: "Each house shall establish its own rules, and shall be judge of the elections, returns and qualificatio...

The Common Cause of the Gilbert Islanders and the Proletarian. Tho British government recently seized the Gilbert islands in the Pacific ocean. The usual form in such cases was em ployed of declaring a "protectorate," the protectorate being of the sort which the lion assumes over the lamb when he swallows him. The king ojt the islands, .one Mr. Iebuburiemow, who was not con sulted in the transaction, has now pro tested formally 8gainst it and sent word to Washington that if he is to be "pro tected" at all he would very much prefer Uncle Sam as the protector. The Brit ish, he says, are demoralizing and ruining the islanders, and show no regard for any one's rights. It is not likely that our government will take the trouble to quarrel with Groat Britain for the sake of these poor people, but the case may...

The senate voted on United States senator Tuesday, but there was no ex- f citement The republicans voted Eclitlly for J. W. Ady, and the Populist vote was divided on half a dozen candidates. Even the democrats did not vote together, O'Bryan voting for B. P. Waggener and J Dillard for McCleverty.

THE ADVOCATE. 3 MONETAE! COMMISSION Report of the United States Monetary Commission, Appointed by Act of Con gress August 15, 1876. NO. XXXII. Conclusions (continued). Itianot possible, therefore, to draw from that historical example much to enlighten us as to the proper policy to be now pursued by the -United States. The commission have been able to arrive at only the one single conclusion, that resumption in this country is not prac ticable under the circumstances, until the existing laws making gold the sole metallic legal tender are repealed, lie sumption, while those laws remain in force, is the establishment of an exclu sive gold standard in the United States, just as English resumption in 1821 gave effect to the English gold law of 1816. That the two precious metals together are adequate to maintain existing prices is made at least doubtful by the fact that so many countries have abandoned coin payments within recent years, and have resorted to paper money. The total inadequa...

THE ADVOCATE. 5 or that the cost to parents would be greater than at present? Experience proves the contrary to be true, as is evidenced by the authorities wo have cited. In fact, the furnishing of the books to pupils free is the important consideration. It is the one thing in comparison with which the method is insignificant. Whether it be by state contract, by county contract or by district contract, is of little impor tance compared with the proposition that the books shall be free. We are not as solicitous concerning how contracts shall be made, as that theyshall be made by some constituted authority, and thereby uniformity in districts at least be secured; and, through the free text book system, that every child shall be supplied, and that promptly at the beginning of the school. The recommendation of the governor in his message is as follows: The parents and guardians of the children in our publio schools have long complained of the exorbitant cost of text books, and this subj...
