0 ties the land; as long 69 the farmer and miner must divide up with the idler, the speculator, the landlord, so long, I say, will the laboring class suffer for the want of thmvs. ' Though you fill the vaults full of money, thoagh invention increases the power of labor to produce one hundred fold; though interest be re duced to the half of 1 per cent; with all this and more, it would do the laborer no good as long as the injustice continues that deprives him of the right to the use of the earth. In England nineteen-twentieths of God's children have no right to the use cf His land; in the United States there are 40,000,000 of His creatures that have no home they can call their own; it is for these wronged ones, these men robbed of their birthright, that we should work. What the people demand is justice for all men; they want no foolish legislation. Hartford, Kas. R. T. Snediker. Pacts About Tree School Boob.

PRODUCE GALLING. Editor Advocate: There Bre t o ar guments which are prominently urged egainst attempted legislation to put down gambling in products. The first ia that the anti-option bill would not realize any benefit to producers in the shape of better prices or steadier, values. The next ia that the bill proposed w unconsti tutional, inasmuch as it would interfere with etate's rights and sovereign control in respect of their commerce, and also the rights of individuals as to commer cial contracts.- Let us briefly examine these arguments. In support of the first, it ia claimed that large speculators and capitalists would buy up the grain or cotton at such Dricea as they might in combina tions dictate, and that they could sell the same again, when and at such prices aa they might agree upon, leaving the producer and consumer both at their mercy. .This argument may be met by stating that while such monopolies are familiar now as in the case of coffee grain and cotton, especially th...

THE ADVOCATE. 11 Alien Ownership of Land. One of the demands of the Alliance is that alien ownership of land should be prohibited. Perhaps we hare not seen the importance of this demand as we think we have of soma others. The sub ject is worth oar most serious and ear nest consideration. We do not propose here and now to enter into an exhaustive discussion cf the question, but simply to call your attention to the report made to the Fifty-first congres3 by the judiciory committee, which had been instructed to investigate and report to that body the extent of alien ownership of land in this country. In this report, No. 2,388, first session of the Fifty-first congress, we find the following: Your committee has ascertained with reasonable certainty that certain noble menprincipally Englishmen have ac quired and now own in the aggregate about 21,000,000 acres of land within the United States. Now, mark you, these are English no blemen, and they have acquired the land and it is in large b...

The" advo cates of the repeal of the Sherman bul lion purchase act continued to-day in the house to circulate their petitions in favor of a cloture amendment to the rule for the consideration of the Andrew Catebill. All of the democrats from New York, except Mr. Cumniings, have signed. The number of signatures ob tained thus far falls considerably short of a majority of the democrats of the house, and apprehensions are felt that it 'will be impossible to obtain the desired majority. A number of signatures can be ob tained if assurances will be given that some compromise measure will be sub stituted for the present law. Members of this mind say it ia asking too much of them tu repeal the present law and leave no o'ther act for furnishing a continued addition to the circulating medium in its place.

AND TOPEKA TRIBUNE !I'n& TOPEKA, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1893. rSSfgffSfUSU THE LEGISLATURE. THE HOUSE. The miniature aggregation of super annuated politicians and ambitious youth which Mr. Douglass calls the "constitn tional house," has been at the old stand -part of the time during the past week, but not doing much business. They got a little more unruly last week and did on several occasions act like naughty school boys, making it necessary for the Popu lists to threaten them with corporal pun ishment. Then they passed a resolution saying that unless the Populists should take part in their proceedings before a certain length of time their seats should be declared vacant. The Populists con sidered this the biggest joke of the sea son. . PASSED THE DOUSE. The following bills have been passed by the lower house: Senate bill No. 201, An act making 'appropriation for maintaining the ex peridental station at the state uni versity of Kansas at Lawrence, estab lished to promo...

"Aj3 to the 7.30s of 1SG4, nothing was required to make the notes themselves pei feet for issue after they left the printing bureau and the sealing de- Sartment attached thereto, where the red seal was imprinted upon them, as they id not bear the seal of the treasury proper, and the signatures of the register and treasurer were engraved and printed from the same plate as the notes themselves. The committee find that a considerable number and amount of those appear to have been duplicated originally, and it is impossible, as is said in respect to the coupons, to know certainly at this time whether these duplications are mere inno cent mistakes or are fraudulent" Page 101.

Marketing produce and takitg back necessary merchandise constitute the farm er'a traffic department. Intercourse with his neighbors and freedom of travel are his bureau of information. Good roads are to farmers what good railways are to cities. . The usual policy has been to leave roadways largely to the counties, and if the legislature prefers to adhere to the policy th eoounties should have an opportunity to vote on a constitutional amendment author izing them to raise and expend more money for this purpose. The federal government and the states should have ofnoers for col lecting and publishing statistics on road building methods. It might be read...

ADVOCATE. THE DIET SLIQES3. The following from the Wichita Beacon of February 7 is timely and to the point. There has, as the Beacon states, been a systematic effort, first, to prevent Mr. Biddle from securing a bond, and second, after the bond was secured in spite of all opposition, to convey the impression that it is worthless. We can add an instance to those cited by the Beacon illustra tive of the methods pursued. One of the signers of the bond is a John Guthrie, who, by the way,1s perfectly good for all he contracts. On the discovery of this name, the gang hunted up Hon. John Guthrie, of this city, and secured a denial from him that he had signed the bond. Armed with this they proclaim a forgery, and publish to the world that many signatures upon the bond are spuri ous. It does not seem to occur to this outfit that honest people will understand that there is more than one John Guthrie in the universe, and that the motive of all this hulla baloo will be thoroughly understood. Wi...

THE A.D"VOOiLTEl. 7 Genuine Oo"operation Labor Exchange. NO. IL Editor Advocate : Many worthy peo ple of all factions have for years past felt that co-operation was the only cor rect plan upon which our social end busi ness propositions should be based. The one great obstacle has been the lack of a complete system marking out a true plan of operation, and the people's in ability to fully comprehend the need of such united action. We have been taught to consider ourselves a free and independent people with the duty of each to paddle his own craft, which had the tendency to prevent folks from uniting to protect themselves from the common enemy of the wealth producers. While the toilers continued single handed to create all the wealth they could, in order to lay up some for emer gencies, another class combined to ac cumulate the products by speculations, sharp dealings, usury and monopoly, until it has ceased being a virtue to bear un due burdens. When a class of business men unite to ...

0 A BLIOK SCHEME. Some galoot signing himself J. H. 'Horner has sent the following letter, writtea upon a house of representa tive letter head, to the president of the Osage County Alliance: Topma, Kas., February 8, 1893. Chairman County AUianoe, Osage County: Diab SiH-Fleaae take up a subscription among the members of the People's party, and send in a letter to us this week. The banks and express companies would sus picion that we are taking up a subscription if sent by or through them. We got $350 from Douglas oounty yesterday. We must keep our members up, and they are now out, so send in as soon as possible. The Santa Fe railroad is furnishing the republi can house money. Keep this quiet. J. H. Hobseb, Repressntatire Hall. The letter is enclosed in an insur ance department envelope. Nobody knows any such man as J. H. Horner, and he is evidently a fraud trying to bleed the people.

THE ADVOCATE. 0 Significance of Name. Editor Advocate: Every intelligent Bible reader must have noticed that in the earlier periods of Biblical history, all proper names were significant of the leading qualities or characteristics of the person or thing named. For instance, Joshua, Moses' successor, whom the Divine Providence raised up to deliver the children of Israel from their wilder ness journeyings, and domicile them in the promised land, signifies "savior," or "deliverer." For my present purpose, this one illus tration must suffice. This custom, in so far as the naming of children, at birth, is concerned, has almost wholly ceased, be cause in our present darkened spiritual state."parents perceive little or nothing of the mental qualities of the child at its birth. Some relics of this ancient cus tom, however, are still seen in the nam ing of institutions and societary organ izations; such, for instance, as the "democratic" party. The meaning of this name evidently was to signi...

No one can have ob served the political eigne or the times and not be convinced of this. Many of the members of both of the .old political parties pretend not to see it, and, meta phorically speaking, are "whistling through the . graveyard to keep their courage up "and the courage of other people. There may be, and doubtless are. some who do not see it, for the only rea son that they are not observers. With euch people the old adage holds good "There are none so blind as those who won't see." There are some people who never see any indications 01 ram untu ram comes. But the masses of the people of the country both see and feel the approach ing revolution. They see and feel the need of it. They are daily becoming more and more dissatisfied with the pres ent political order of things. The great masses ...

11 Initiative and Eefereadnm. A friend of mine advises me to go back every week to the beginning in preach ing direct legislation. He says that the general reader, unless he knows what "direct, legislation "means, what "the initiative " means, and what "the refer endum" means, will have a confused notion that I am dealing with an ab struse philosophical enigma, and will skip my article. My friend shall influ ence me this week, at any rate, for my preaching may not yet be clear to some general readers, and I will begin at the "first step. And, really, the first step is the whole way, so far as merely under standing the idea is concerned. The word initiative has acquired in politics a special meaning. In this special meaning, initiative signifies the pro posing of a law, by those who have the legal right to do bo, to the body which may accept or reject the law. When the citizens themselves so propose a law, they exercise the initiative. In this latter case, the term initiative desig n...
