THE ADVOCATE, 0 POPULIST MEETINGS. The Most Wonderful Enthusiasm Ever Known in Kanjas Governor Lewellinj'a Meetings. Marion, Kas., Aug. 27. Saturday was a great day for the Populista of Marion county. They had a county rally, and came in great numbers from every part of the county. Hon. Fred J. Close, Hon. Van B. Prather and Mrs. Diggs addressed the people both in the afternoon and evening. Hod. Ed. Hoch was in the audience, and Mr. Close made a great hit, reading the letter of Mr. Hoch describing what kind of a man the republicans should not nominate for governor, and when he asked Mr. Hoch if that was not a good picture of Mor rill the house went wild. The meeting in the evening was to be held out doors, but rain prevented and the courthouse was crowded full and hundreds could not got in. It is stated that the democrats of Marion county will not throw their votes away this year. GOVERNOR LEWELLING'S MEETINGS. Russell, August 25. Governor Law elling spoke without being advertised b...

Another 8tory Spoiled. The following letter from Congress man Baker knocks another of the late republican sensations in the head. The fertility of invention thus far displayed in the campaign will enable the man agers to soon supply another, however, to take its place: HOUSB OF RlPRKSKHTATIVIS, U. S. J Washington, D.

THE ADVOOATB. 11 Overproduction of Laborers. While the stockholders of that power ful and wealthy corporation, the Rook Island railroad company, sat at their breakfast tables yesterday morning 1,000 men gathered about the tracks of the company at Areher avenue, where the work of raising the tracks is about to commence, and begged and pleaded, some upon bending knees for the privi lege of working for $1.15 a day. But fifty of the 1,000 men who prayed for work secured it. The preliminary work of raising the tracks commenced Monday morning. When a few weeks roll by there will be work for perhaps 1,500 men, but now it is only possible, those who have charge of the undertaking bay, to use Bixty or seventy men. The news that work was to be had in plenty soon spread about the city and the glad tidings brightened many homes Monday night in which bread has long been a luxury. Yesterday morning, from all direc tions, men could be seen coming. Pick axes and shovels were upon their shoul ders a...

And finally, don't you know that the repub licans do not want to raid these institu tions because it will expose prominent republicans? And don't you know that almost the entire influence of the re publican party (which is in the majority there) is thrown against the power of the police commissioners? Then, Mr. Troutman, why are not you and other republicans honest, and tell the people the actual facts about these matters?

14 THE ADVOCATE Single-tax Voice from St. Loute. Editou Advocate: "Who would want to own a thing that was taxed when he could invest his money in something not taxable? To put the whole burden of taxation on land would not only cheapen land values but would drive it out of the hands of the people; the poor would yield first; . those who could afford to monopolize large areas would be left to own the land. Monopolies of land would mul tiply to the extent that soon practic ally all the land would be controlled by syndicates. The tenement system would result.for all would want to give up ownersship of land and go to pro ducing personal property not subject to taxation. lut even this would fail. If taxes were higher rent would be high. Only the rich could afford to be tenants, even. All others would be serfs or servants. What stronger chain could be riveted upon the people? Even the rich could not af ford to own land, and it would revert in time to the state. No one would want it. It wo...

2 THB ADVOCATE. Barton at Oakley. Editok Advocate: Wednesday was a gala day for Oakley. Governor L. D. Lewelling came down from Wi nona in a buggy, and for two hours and fifteen minutes he expounded Peo ple's party principles to more than 500 people of all political parties. It was the largest gathering of people ever held in Oakly. Mr. Hendee was on hand and got quite a number of sub scribers for the Advocate. 0. L. Smith was here also and made one of his characteristic speeches, and people for the time forgot the failure of crops and drouth, as everyone seemed to be happy. But the day came to an end as good things will, and the next day the g. o. p.'s had Ralph Burton here, and there were about ISO people out to hear him, of which about one-half were Popu 1 ists. This shows the g. o. p.'s will not come out to hear anyone, not even their own speakers, but after Mr. Bur ton had got through villifying Gov ernor Lewelling and the Populist party" among other things he said: "There is n...

A nobility must and will exist (p. 377.) As I write a great strike of railway employes is in pro gress. Scarce had it begun when the attorney general of the United States, desiring to aid the corporations as against the strikers, promulgated an official opinion that the re fusal of an employe of a railroad company to aid in the op eration of a train to which a mail car chanced to be at tached is a crime against the government, and issued an order to his subordinates directing the arrest of all such re bellious slaves; United States judges authorized marshals to recruit armies of "deputies' to protect the property of the corpora...

THE ADVOCATE. 5 STATE TREASURER HAYES. As the republican managers in Kansas are so extremely desirous of ignoring all principle and making a campaign solely upon party records, we have decided to accommodate them to a limited extent in this line; not, however, to the exclusion of more interesting and important matter. While we detest a campaign of this character, the republican managers and press seem incapable of engag ing in, or appreciating any other; and heace it may be well, to a limited ex tent, to meet them upon their own ground. We ask the reader, how ever, to observe this distinction be their methods and ours: Their charges are mere gossip unsup ported by a scratch of proof, while we shall back everything we say with official documentary evidence. Do not overlook this. We demand evi dence of their charges and fail to receive it. We give evidence of ours unsolicited. Our republican friends shall have something that they can appreciate. In the report of Daniel W. Wilder, repu...

6 THE EEPUBLICAN CAMPAIGN OF SLAN DER. Only a few days ago the Capital congratulated itself by the statement that Chairman Breidenthal and the People's party had been forced into a defensive campaign. Nothing could be f arthar f rom the truth. While the sole effort of the republican man agers has been to scatter malicious charges against Populist officials and employes, as a matter of fact neither Mr. Breithenthal nor the Populist press or speakers have paid any con siderable amount of attention to them. Nor are the people demand ing attention to thia stuff. -The Ad- vocate has already received several letters from subscribers protest ing against the use of so much space in exposing the falsehoods and vile slanders of the Capital. Our readers prefer that we fill our columns with intelligent discussions of the living, issues of the day. It is doubtful if a single inquiry would arise from any part of the state concerning the truth or falsehood of any of the stories upon which the repu...

A correspondent requests the publication of Senator Plumb's remarks upon the con traction of the currency, andi we present here a few paragraphs from his speech in the United States senate Maroh 27, 1888. The question before the senate was a house bill providing for the purohase of outstand ing government bonds by the secretary of the treasury. To this bill Senator Plumb offered as aa amendment an additional sec tion providing among other things that whenever the circulation of any national bank, or any portion of it, should be sur rendered, that the secretary of the treasury should be required to issue an equivalent amount of United SSatas treasury notes to take their place in the circulation of the oountry. The following are soma of thi points made by Senator Plumb in support of this amendment. Ed. For years the national bank circula tion, and so the volume of money out standing ...

Last Friday the republicans had a picnic rally at Wakarusa, Shawnee county. They had it advertised exten sively and had arranged for lo rate ex cursions from all near railroad towns. Consequently they had a crowd of about 5,000, which they very naturally mag nified to twice that number. The speak ers were Ingalls, Morrill, Dawes, Hoch, Troutman and Thurston. A large part of the crowd was from Topeka. In this city men were given their railroad fare and a free dinner as an inducement to go and help swell the crowd. On these terms everybody who wanted an outing and could spare the time would be inclined to go. ...

"You seem to be very busy, Cicero; I haven't heard you say a word about politics for the past week. I haven't offended you, have I?" "No, not at all, Sophia. But I do think that a woman is out of her sphere when she tries to dabble in politics, es pecially when she disputes with her husband." "Why, what is woman's sphere ac cording to your doctrine?"

THE ADVOOATE. 11 Congratulates Rev. Botkin. Editor Advocate: Like many other Populists I have been rejoiced to read the many reports of members of other parties leaving their old homes and joining the People's party; but I wa3 especially pleased to read Rev. Botkin's letter in your last issue, and I desire to shake hands with him through your paper. I, for one, fully realize that only by and through a union of all the better elements in society this reform move ment can ever be successfully carried out. Two factions must necessarily be come united in our reform movement to bring success. First', a correct un derstanding of economic principles. Second, an unselfish devotion to jus tice and righteousness, with a higher recognition of the duties of citizenship. Injustice, monopoly and oppression are upheld on one side by ignorance of economic laws, ignorance often shared by those called educated. Many do we find yet who do not un derstand how our finance, transporta tion and land law s...

In many cases the salaries were raised instead of reduced prior to that period. Yes, sir, Mr. Trout man; I said that $722)85442 tax was taken from the shoulders of the common tax-payers by the Populist board of railroad assessors when they equalized the railroad assess ment with other property of the state, and you don't dare go before the people of Kansas and attempt to justify the lowering of the railroad assessment over 7 million dollars by the last republican board of railroad assessors, whom it was supposed received good pay for the re duction made, as well as a handsome gift to the republican campaign slush fund. I must still insist that the $722, 854.42 was saved to the people of Eanaas, because the s...
