VOL.YI, NO. 33. $1.00 A TEAR. FINANCIERING. SHORN OF ITS PRILLS IT WOULD BE CALLED ERAUD AND COMMON THEET. The Shady Transactions of the Santa Fe Officials Recently Brought To Light, Crookedness Protected by the Courts. When the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe system of railroads went into insolvency last December, Judge Cald well, of the United States court, ap pointed as receivers J. W. Reinhart, J. J. McCook and J. C. Wilson. The first named was president of tha Atchison road, the second a director, and the third is a pet of General Attorney Peck. The appointments were dictated by the Union Trust company of New York, which represented English and Ameri can bondholders to the extent of 180 million dollars. For some months recently a "protec tive reorganization committee" selected by the security holders has been at work trying to get the affairs of the compa nies in shape to take the property out of the court's hands and incidentally out of the hands of the old stockholders who did ...

BY CON IIEALY. 11 How does it come, Sophia, that I haven't heard you say a word about politics for a week? Have you con cluded that you don't want to vote or are you taking private lessons on finance from some member of Coxey's army?" "Well, no; I have been reading some, but have not been talking very much on the money question to any of those Coxeyites that you make so much fun of." "Who could blame me for making fun of them ? Can you imagine any thing more ludicrous than a gang of ignorant laboringmen crawling out of mines, or leaving their work in shops and factories or on farms, and starting off to Washington on foot to tell con gressmen what they ought to do?" "I'll admit that it would be laugha ble if there were but a few of them, or if there was no cause for it. It would then look as if they were cranks, or else were trying to get a livingwithout work, and at the same time ...

THE ADVOOAT3. 3 THE SINGLE-TAX. Reply to John W. Bell's Article In the "Ad vocate" of Ju'y 25. BY R. T. SNEDIKER. How anyone can read "Progress and Poverty," and other works of Henry George on the land question, and get such erroneous ideas as are expressed by John W. Bell in his discussion with Q. A. Glass, is hard to understand. Does not Mr. George show plainly, so plain that any ordinary mind can see as soon as his attention is called to it, that ownership or monopoly of land is equivalent to ownership of the landless, who, if they live at all, must live on the land ? And Mr. George has stated so clearly that no student of political economy has been able, on leg&l or ethical grounds, to controvert the fact that a tax on land values, irrespective of all improvements, will break this giant monopoly of the store house of nature; set labor free to produce wealth; give to the producer the whole product of his labor, while paying into a com mon fund, to be used for the benefit of a...

THE ADVOCATE. 5 petenoe without the privilege in return of asking the ooat of our own productions? The presumption of farmers in asserting their right to think for themselves, to claim a fair share of profits, and to assert opin ions upon public issues, is a departure from time-honored oustom. This movement is not a particular mani festation of unrest, or the spirit of com munism, on the part of the farmers of the great West, but part, and we oan truthfully say the most intelligent part of the uni versal movement by manual workers throughout the world, who are seeking more light and taking a step in advance of previous history. In this oountry it means the exemplification of our republican de mooraoy. It means a protest against the oppression of class legislation and jobbery, state and national. From the rich and powerful, reforms never come. The history of the world shows that in all ages reforms, moral, social and political, have oome up from the people. It will be seen from the a...

G TH:E3 ADYOOATB, JOINTS AND GAMBLING HOU8ES. ICeDumican papers are just now taking an unusually lively interest in the suppression of joints and gam blinj houses. They are making all sjrts of charges against Populist state officials and the police force of cities of the first class, of neglect of duty, and even of complicity in crime. While these charges have never been supported by any kind of evidence, we propose to devote a lit tle space to the subject, not in de fense of anybody, bat in presenting some facts that do not appear in re publican papers, and that may pos sibly be overlooked unless we men tion them. The prohibitory law of the state of Kansas imposes npon the county at torney of each county the imperative duty to prosecute all violations of the law, and it clothes him with all the necessary powers for the perform ance . of this duty. Now, let us look into this subject with just ordinary fairness and honesty and sea who is really to be blamed if the law is not enforced...

It was started by the Chicago Herald which would have supported the cause of Debs and the strikers had its proprietor succeeded in his blackmailing scheme. Failing in that it busies itself in the invention of these lies, and you busy yourself 'repeating them. We have received a copy of "The Advance Era," a monthly journal published in New York city. The indications are that it will prove one of the ablest advocates of social and political reform in the country. We are much pleased with this number and wish the paper the success merited by its evident ability and pluck. Thxbb is a judge up in this part of the country who is...

THE jfUDVOajk-TIH. 9 POOS PICKERING. He Has Exposed His Ignorance -All the Suf frage Amendment Needs Is Votes. Oa August 8 Chairman Wharton of the prohibition stats central committee gave to the public a letter from 1. 0. Pickering, prohibition candidate Jfor governor, in which he expressed the belief that the pending equal suffrage amendment will fail even though it may receive a majority of the votes of the people. The reasons given for euoh belief will be dear to the reader from the reply whioh we have ob tained from Mr. G. 0. Clemens and which is published herewith. Since this reply was in type we have received from Judge W. C. Webb, too late for publication, another reply covering the whale ground and arrir ing at the same conclusion as Mr. Clemens. Judge Doeter has also written an opinion of like import as has also Mr. Nathan Cree, the man who introduced the suffrage reso lution in the democratic state convention. Several republican lawyers have also ex pressed like views bono...

The interstate commerce law which ia bo effective against workingmen, waa adopted for the express purpose of preventing such discriminations and punishing" the perpe trators thereof. In spite of the publicity given to these facts, the courts have been so busy endeavoring to punish workicgmen for leaving their jobs that they have had no time to devote to such trivial matters. "The workingmen belonging to the American Railway union retired from the employment of the railways at their own will; they are now and have always been free to return when they desired. Their officers and directors proposed to the General Managers' association at Chicago that if they would receive their former employes without prejudice they had no doubt that traffic would be re sumed at once. These overtures were scornfully rejected. Since that time tr...

They ought to shoo the Santa Fa out of their sacred society at one, before the rude investigators of that road's books make any more distressing discoveries. It is hard for the public to believe that the great men at the head of a rail way system should have really broken laws with far longer premeditation than any rioter in the recent labor troubles. For it is an axiom of high repute that railroad presidents cannot sin. Conse quently the report that the reorganiza tion committee intends to ask Mr. llein hart what has become of 2 million dollars, a part ef these illegal rebates, is enough to give any properly-constituted admirer of our railroad aristocraoy a chilL Let us see what the charges against the Santa Fe'a officials exactly amount to.

TECH ADVOCATE. 13 The Alabama Election. Republicans had no interest in the Alabama election, Bave as spectators, and the result shows thej did cot very largely vote, or that if they did, they were rendered nujatary. The Eolb party in that state is a sort of independ ent democratic movement, and its main claim for republican sympathy was its stand for honest elections. Oates waa the regular democratic bloody-shirt can didate. They talk a great deal down there about "forgetting the war" so far as the North is concerned, but they make that issue from year's end to year's end. You will hear more "war talk" in one day in any southern state in social ntsrcourse than in a Northern state n a year. And Alabama has been carried on the bloody-shirt issues and ballot stuffing beyond credibility any where in this section save among those who have had vote factory experience in Kansas City. - The Kolb party is the "white man's" portion of the democracy. There are sixty-five counties in Alabama. I...

Remember your failing and don't jump at a conclusion till I have had a chance to explain. True it would raise the price of silver if all those nations that have demonetized it would commence using it again as money the same as gold. But if you are going into politics you must learn to look at things as they are, and not as you think they ought to be. Those nations; have no intention of going back to the use of silver again, but if we were to declare for free and unlim ited coinage of silver they stand ready to dump all their silver onto us." "Would they? Could we not stop that?" "No, certainly not. That is what free and unlimited coinage means." What do you mean by dumping' their silver on us ? Would they give it to us or sell it to us, or how would they doit?" "No, they would have it coined into dollars." "And then take it home with them to their ...
