The personal relations of the members have been pleasant in spite of the partisan feeling in the air, and in the closing days the republicans in the senate almost to a man stood by their Populist associates in the struggle against the outrageous conduct of the bouse. The state can congratulate itself that the senate will return in two years. It has been a re markable body, not oniy in its political reform tendencies, but also in its supe rior moral character as compared with its predecessors.

Editor Capital: -Coming from the bedside of a sick grandson to find the news, I read the sensational story m the Kansas City Times, which that paper says you published, and was more than surprised at your publishing such abso lute falsehoods. It seems more malicious than I deemed it possible for you to con ceive and give to the public as facts. You say among other things that "it is said that a draft for $3,000, drawn by Fete Kline, of Kansas City, Ma, the great lottery operator, upon the Ameri can national bank of that city, and $1,500 in cash were brought this 5ity and paid to the manipulators of the guber natorial ring, composed of Fred J.

TPIS ADVOCATE. 11 PSESIDIirr M'LEOD Is Ho Longer "Bunning His Business to Suit Himself." From The People (N. Y.) Pottstown, Pa., March L "Pride go eth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall," is an adage many centuries old; and which has once more been exemplified in the case of the pres ident and autocrat of the Philadelphia & leading Riilroad Cj. The cruel, proud and dictatorial McLeod has almost "between two days" fallen from elevated position of favor and authority, down, down, until he had to bite the dust. The sudden and desperate downfall of that determined industrial crusher must afford considerable gratification to op pressed workingmen generally, and to the Brotherhood of Locomotive En gineers particulary. It has been the fate of the P. & R. oc topus to have had at its head, recently, a trio of labor tyrants: Gowan, Corbin and McLeod. Al of whom assumed con trol with the eclat of "conquering heroes," but did not remain as disappointed stockholders ki...

The telegraph system of the United States is owned by a monopoly which lays an inordinate tax upon the trans mission of intelligence in order to pay dm dends on stock, representating several times the value of the plant, thereby practically debarring by extortionate rates all but the wealthy from the use of the telegraphs; and Whereas, The said monopoly on aooount of the necessary dependence of the news paper press upon the telegraph service for the collection of news is able, either directly or indireotly, through press association, fa vored by it, to distort, oolor, or totally sup press the news of the day, and by refusal of service to disable and destroy journals op posed to its interests or to those of kindred monopolies; and Whereas...

THE ADVOCATE. The Eecent Supreme Court Decisions and Precedents Established. Editor Advocate: Perhaps it is not within the province of an uneducated clodhopper to Criticize the decisions of so exalted a body as the supreme court of the state of Kansas. The time was when such tribunals were'looked upon as almost sacred, but the decisions of modern courts have been so invariably against the well-being of the common people and in favor of rich corporations and trusts, that much of the sacredness that used to be attached to such courts has been removed, and the men compris ing those courts are regarded as very human, and the recent decisions of the supreme court of Kansas has covered itseif with an odium but little less than that brought upon the head of Judge Tarney in the infamous Dred Scott decis ion. I believe it is well to renew the three memorable decisions of the recent court and see what the legitimate results will be. First, the court decided that it did not have jurisdiction o...

No witnesses being ready, the taking of evidence did not begin until Friday at 2 p. m., when Hudson was put upon the stand.

THE ADVOCATES. AH OBJEOT LESSOU IK TAXATION. BY QUINCY A. GLASS. District 48 lies directly west of Win field, in Vernon township, of Cow ley county. There are twenty-nine quarter sections in the district, all till able. The land is what is known as divide and second bottom. The portion nearest the city being the highest and somewhat less productive is equal in value to that portion further west be cause of its nearer location to town. Consequently, for the purposes of this article, all the land in the district will be considered of equal value. Of the twenty-nine quarter sections, thirteen are owned by non-residents of the district These are mostly unimproved, having much less upon them in the way of buildings, fruit, shrubbery, etc., than those owned by residents. By the as sessor's census there are thirty-two male citizens over twenty-one years of age, of whom nineteen appear on the records as land owners. The largest tract owned and farmed by a resident is ICO acres, and the larg...

THE ADVOCATE, 3 Genuine Oo-operation--Labor Exchange. NO. V. Editor Advocate: We have men tioned the "Labor Exchange" in our writings of this series of articles, which have been written for the special benefit of the studious reformera who should chance to peruse out. productions; and it may be proper to cast some further light upon the subject which should most in terest the wealth producersnot only of America, but of the entire world. If newspaper publishers and literary reform writers knew the great impor tance of discussing this matter, and knew the vast amount of good they might do to themselves and humanity, they would waste no time in taking it up at once. If the people could comprehend in the least degree how much this subject ' should interest them, and how much the welfare and happiness of themselves and future generations depends upon the solution of this one problem alone, how anxious they would be to learn of its merits and put into practice its teach ings.

TICTJ ADVOCATE. '5 strument of political warfare; and the citations that follow will have a ten dency to show that, in the great cities especially, the saloon is one of the important political factors. In his letter of acceptance of the nomination of the prohibition party for governor of Massachusetts, Sep tember 7, 1870, Wendell Phillips said: New York ruled by drunkards is proof of the despotism of the dramshop. Men whom murderer? serve that they mjy esoape, and because they have escaped the gallows, rule that oity. The ribald orew which holds them up could neither stifle its own oon scienoe nor rally its retinue but for the help of the grogshop. A like testimony oomes from the history of our other great cities. State laws are defied in their streets; and by means of the dramshop and the gilded saloons of fashionable hotels, their ballot box is in the hands of the criminal classes, of men who avowedly and systematically defy the laws. Indeed, this is the case in Boston. FromtheCyc...

TEEEC advocate. THE EEPTJBLIOAN IDEA OF POLI TICS. The Atchison Champion of March 14 has a lengthy editorial reviewing the political situation from a repub lican standpoint, and indicating whaf the policy of the party should be In the future. There is much "in the CJiampion editorial that is sensible and exhibits a knowledge of facts and conditions, with which we be lieve other republicans are equally as conversant as the editor of the Cham pion, but they are not honest enough to make the acknowledgment. Take, for instance, the following: The loss of 40,000 republican rotes since 1888 in Kansas did not result wholly from any state issue, or from causes arising within the boundaries of the common wealth. It is not only foolish, but it is pos itive madness to olose our eyes to the faot that the bulk of the voters in Kansas who voted for Harrison in 1888 and for Weaver in 1892, made that change for what, to them, seemed good and sufficient reasons. These men are as patriotio now as the...

TJ-ZE ADVOCATE. 7 TO SETTLE ALL DIFFERENCES. Washington, March 15. Friends of Sec retary Carlisle gay that he intends to sub mit to congress, when that body reconvenes, a plan by whioh the differences between Mr. Cleveland and the free silver men may be satisfactorily adjusted. Ha has the plan fully outlined, and one of those who claims to have direot information on the subject says that it calls for the repeal of the Sher man silver purohase law, and provides for the deficiency in the ourrency by repealing the state bank tax and the issue of currency by banks under state charters, the issue to be under the supervision of the general gov ernment, and the seourity for the ourrency to be according to state laws, approved by the government. The secretary believes that the plan will be acceptable to the free sil ver men. He fully appreciates the improbability of securing the repeal of the Sherman silver purohase law without giving some equiva lent in exchange. The free silver men hold t...

In rcaponsa to a call issued a few weeks ago, and which, as the outoome of several months' labor, bore the signatures of nearly 2,000 divines business men, and other prominent people of this state, a large number of people met to-day at Lafayette hall to consider the de sirability of bringing Into existence a new national political party. About every reform idea, inoluding pro hibition, woman's suffrage, state control of railroads and telegraphs, free ooinage, anti national banks, secularism, etc, has its representative. The proceedings so far have been of a routine character. The oon Tention will probably be in session for two or three days. Press Dispatch.

The tri umph of the legislative committee in se curing the books and papers of the Minnesota coal combine seems to be com plete. The seizure was made by the sergeant-at-arma yesterday afternoon, but a desperate attempt was made at 1 o'clock this morning by John Rhodes, chief clerk of the combine, and his attorney to re cover the property. They rushed into the room of the committee at the Metro politan hotel, and, seeing the pile of books, started away with them. They were stopped at the door, however, by W. II. Lock wood, of the committee, who, in a hand-to-hand conflict, kept the men with the books at bay until Officers Bahee and Sullivan, of the St. Paul police force, arrived and took possession of everything in sight. They, with the sergeant-at-arms, took the books to the capitol and placed them in a vault. In both houses of the legislature this morning petitions were ...

Sorie time since, Edward Everett Hale, writing of "Social Problems," in the (7m iruypolitaraA a chapter on republics, in which he said: " Quite fundamental in the republican idea is the abolition of large standing armies. The true republican expects that every man shall be a soldier and do his duty in repelling foreign invasion. It almost follows that in a true republic there are no wars of conquest. The re public of Prance at this moment is tax ing itself beyond all measure simply to maintain an army which shall approach the strength of the army of Germany or that of Russia. If you asked the czar of Russia, or the Emperor William in pub lic why Kussia or Germany maintain such large armies, the answer would be an appeal to national pride and a declara tion that it is necessary to maintain such forces in order to preserve the indepen dence of the respective empires.

12 THE ADVOCATE. WASHEJGTOH 00SEESP03DEI0E.. Eoitob Advocate: Daring the pest week. I have been industriously studying the legislative results of the last con gress. I had determined to present & clear statement of laws enacted in the interest of thepeople. I trust that the four last words of the preceding sentence may not be construed as a sarcasm, because really we have a right in reviewing the work of the nation's law. makers to ex "pect to find that the interest and the welfare of the people have been looked after. There is a legend to the effect that men are sent to congress for that purpose.' As a result of my investiga tions I find that something over 600 bills ran the gauntlet of house and senate maneuvering and became laws. Of these 600 by far the larger proportion were personal claims or pertaining to minor matters of merely local interest, such matters as ought, under any sort of com mon sense management, to have been considered in the localities benefited.
