THE ADYOOAT23. 5 A QUESTION OF VEBACITY. At the great Populist rally in this city July 12, Mrs. Diggs charged the Topeka Capital with publishing edi torial matter in reference to the Pall man strike that was famished by the Pullman company to that and other republican papers. The following morning the Capital made a most energetic denial of the soft impeach ment in the course of which it said; If the above charges were true the Cap ital would be unworthy a plaee in any household and its editorial disousaions ab solutely -valueless. When Mrs. Diggs ut tered that charge, we regret to hare to say for the sake of her sex and herself individ ually she wilf ully and maliciously lied. We will turn the Capital over to the Pop ulist state central committee to be used by them aa they see proper until January 1, if Mrs. Diggs or any other person will pro duce one iota of proof to sustain the charges she made as to the source of the strike editorials of the Capital. We will make the same offer ...

On ths 26th of this month will oc cur the annual school meetings throughout this state, at which time the text-book question" will come up in many, if not all, of the school dis tncts for consideration, we pre sented some thoughts upon this sub ject a few weeks ago when comment ing upon a late decision of the attorney general, at which time we stated that we should have some other (suggestions to oiler in due time. Under existing circumstances and conditions it is believed that the following thoughts era not unworthy of careful consideration. (Wing to limited space, we shall, instead of presenting an argnmentive article, confine it to an expression of a few conclusions we have formed after several years' observation of the working of our county text-book uni formity law. The question whether or not to have county uniformity is wisely left to the decisive vote of the people, to be expressed by them at the annual meeting. Avoiding all theorie...

tary Carlisle to exchange silver for gold coin of larger denominations, the bankers offering to pay a pre mium for the silver coin. Secretary Carlisle's answer was that the treas ury had no silver coin to exchange that it was all held for the redemp tion of the outstanding silver certifi cates. The same pretense had been made prior to that time that is made now that the treasury was full of silver but the people would not have it. Secretary Carlisle was compelled to give the lie to that pretense then, and it is a he to-day. THE CONSTITUTION AND WOMAN SUF FRAGE.

THE ADVOOATB. 0 ABOUT FREIGHT BATES. Tlie New Schedule Adopted by the Railroad Commissioners. Editor Advocate: The railroad com missioners have adopted a schedule of maximum freight rates making a re duction below the present rata about 152 per cent. They promulgated this rate for the benefit of the shipper, pro ducer and consumer, on the grounds that if a dollar will buy more to-day than it ever would before (and it will) then a dollar ought, by rights, to buy more freight. Whether it will is yet to be seen, for there may be no law compelling the railroad companies to adopt the rate declared by the board. If they sea no reason why it should be adopted, then it will be rejected. But the commissioners have performed their part in behalf of the people, depending upon the railway companies to do the rest. If this fails of tha desired purpose, then all the leg-! islation of the past with regard to the regulation of freight rates has been a failure, and there is nothing left but the meas...

He saw &t a glance the whole case, and said he thought it waa the true platform to eland on; that whatever the government could do legitimately and fairly to facilitate the exportation of breadstuff's, and produce good prices for the West, they ought to do. He waa anxious that I should ice the president, and communicate to him my views on the subject." Corbin talked with Grant until he received a positive assurance that Boutwell waa not to sell any more jrold. At a meeting in Grants house, where Gould and Corbin were present, the president said; "Boutwell gave an order to sell gold, and I heard of it, and countermanded the order." It waa not until Gould had received positive assurance from the president's own lips that he considered hia scheme perfect. But the links ot this strategio chain were now nearly all forged.

TECEl ADVOOATB, 11 SOUS STRIKE INFORMATION. Governor Altgeld to Cleveland Press Com ments on Federal Interference Of all the great daily papers in Chi cago the Times (anti-Cleveland demo cratic) is the only one that has not ar rayed itself on the side of monopoly as against the workingmen during the strike. In fact it has been decidedly with the men. As to the question of federal interference, several other dailies, among them the New York World and St. Louis Post-Dispatch'took a bold stand against Cleveland's arrogance. Some extracts from these sources are given below. THG32 SOLDIERS HOME.

This train arrived at Win nemucca at noon, and under cover of these troops a west-bound passenger train that had been stalled at Wnne mucoa since June 23, was released and started forward under a military guard. One company of troops was left at Win nemucca and a military picket estab lished around the railroad property. The rest otbe troops proceeded West with the passenger train.

Editob Advocate: And first, til con damn Pullman as the occasion of the strike the same aa Carnegie of the Homestead strike of a year or bo ego. For a modicum of sense is enough to enable one to understand that these couldn't roll up such millions from the labor and sweat of others without these others coming short of their share. I argue from general principles that labor is oppressed and aggrieved, without go ing into details as to wages. For if, in the distribution of the proceeds of labor and the products of industry for the paat quarter of a century, 25,000 or 30,000 families have raked in more than half of all the property of the country, is it not self-evident that someone else has not got his share and that a vast many others have been euchered in the divi sion? There can be no other conclusion. For suppose the 30,000 had got the whole instead of only half, where would the other CO millions of ...

A special to the News from Fort Sidney, Neb., says: The 200 members of the Denver contin gent of the Coiey army who are here under arrest are liable to be afflicted with an epidemio of typhoid fever. The symptoms are already manifest, and there are at least three well defined cases of scurvy caused by their present food and surroundings. The men have been confined more than a month in a small building hardly large enough to accommodate one-half their number. Many of the prisoners have no blank eta or other covering from damp night air and are compelled to sleep on the bare floor, which is overun with ver min.

Bell, of Paola. QUINCY A. CLASS FOR THE SINGLE TAX. The term, single-tax, means that . .. there should be only one kind of tax J?Yied for public purposes. The term land values is used to distinguish the taxing of land by Its value rather than by its area. The doing away with all other taxes would exempt improve ments on real estate, would exempt improvements on personal property, and in national matters would do away with all taxes upon commodities, whether merchandise imported from foreign countries, on which tax is col lected by tariffs, or goods produced at home from which revenues are raised by our system of internal revenue. Under this system a valuable busi ness lot in a city, kept vacant for spec ulation, or slightly improved, would pay just as much tax as one of equal value, joi...

THE ADVOCATE, confess I know no more effective than that proposed by Mr. Glass in his ad vocacy of the Henry George theory. But that is an end not desired by the American people who believe in the home and in individual ownership of a place to build it. KEPLY BY MR. GLASS. Mr. Bell's argument has followed a line which I am very glad to answer. It is one of the most common objec tions offered to the single-tax, that it would be a tax on the farmers. Now, the value of farms in this country being only one-third of the value of all the real estate in this country! if all taxes were levied upon real estate, then the farm lands of the country would pay only one-third of the taxes of the country. Remember, too, that a third at least of the farm property in the country is owned by landlords and that the exclu sive tax on land values would reach the landlords and could not be shifted upon the tenants. I take Mr. Bell as a believer in the equal rights of all men to the use of the earth or to ...

TEC IB ADVO O.A.Tlii. GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP. One of the singular and yet charaeter iatio positions of the People's party is the declaration in f ator of gorernment owner ship of railroads. Their contentions re solve, their orators favor and their papers demand government ownership. Bat not a platform, not a speaker or paper of note ever offers a plan for the government to secure the ownership. Emporia Gazette, July 21. Suppose a commencement were made in securing government owner ship by foreclosing the mortgage on the Union Pacific just as an eastern rnoney-loaner forecloses the mort gage on a Kansas farm when the owner fails to pay his debt. How would that plan suit the Gazette? This is Peter M. Arthur'i idea of it: "In view of the fact that during the past winter all of the people were taxed to feed the poor and unemployed, it is wrong for any man, even though he has the authority, to order out thousands of workingmen who have large families to support." That is just what the "cap...

G TKJD ADVOCATE. THE PANIC Of 1833. Enough has already been pub lished in these columns, perhaps, to satisfy the average reader that the great financial panics which have oc curred in this country, and which we have been taught to believe were re suits of the natural ebb and flow of the commercial tides, returning with as much Deriodical regularity as the comets that move in fixed and un changeable orbits, are, in reality, " only deep-laid plots and conspiracies of bankers, gold gamblers and poli ticians. Before closing the subject, however, we desire to present the evidences of the 'conspiracy that re sulted in the panic of 1803. The purpose of this panic was to secure the repeal of the Sherman law of July 14, 1890, and the acquies cence of the people of the South and West in such repeal. In the elec tion of Cleveland the conspirators had taken their first step. They knew their man. In the appoint ment of John G. Carlisle as secre tary of the treasury Mr. Cleveland took the second ...

TUB .ADVO Q iLT 23. 7 THE STSIXS. At this writing it is conceded that the great strike is practically at an end. True, strikers are holding out in some localities, and no arrange ment has been effected for the gen eral return of the men to their former places; but no one will claim that there is any hope of the accomplish ment of the general purposes of the strike. While this is true, it has taught lessons that nothing else could have taught Thousands of people to-day see the abaolute neces sity of government ownership and operation of railroads who never saw it before. Many republican papers, even, are advocating this Populist doctrine. Another of the lessons that has been taught has been of especial service to railroad employes themselves. They have seen that ia a contest of labor against the en croachments of capital the republi can and democratic parties are on the side of capital, and the press of both parties has been arrayed solidly against the interests of labor. They have s...
