V0L.VI.NO. 38. $1.00 A YEAS. REDEEMER MORRILL. NOT ONLY AN USUEEB BUT A COLD-BLOODED LAND BHAEX. H8 Extorted Money Irom Poor Home steadersA Eecord That Ought to Drive Him Irom Decent Society, It takes more than, sensational cam paign utterances to prove a man a crimi nal after ha has made a practice of con fining his business acts to the require ments of the law. Yet R. N. Morrill, candidate for governor, stands convicted of the most inhuman selfishness and cruelty to his fellow men that could be practiced within the bounds of law. lie stands charged by his neighbors of hav ing made false statements to the assessor in order to avoid paying his just share of taxes, and of having collected usurious interest from the poor. He may be a law-abiding man but in these days it takes mere qualifications than that to gain a man the confidence and respect of the people of Kansas. A man may stand up for law, as Bhylock of old did, and be a villain still. The matter of Mr. Morrill avoiding the pa...

THIS ADVOOATE Miami County. Editor Advocate: On the 3rd Inst, the Populists of Miami met in convention and nominated Hon. J. P. Eanny for representative; Charles Chandler, for clerk of district court; W. J. Nicholson, for probate judge, and Mr. Glendenning for superintend ent of schools, and such enthusiasm was never witnessed in this county be fore. Our ticket is number one. .Late in the evening Mrs. -Annie L. Diggs addressed a large audience in the park, but had but just got to "dig ging" the two old frauds fairly well, when a shower of rain caused an ad journment to the courthouse where Mrs. Diggs finished painting her pic ture of the two twins in glowing.truth- ful words that could not be mistaken. On Monday (Labor day), hundreds gathered at Osawatomie to see and hear the Hon. Frank Williard, Popu 1 1st candidate for congress for this dis trict and the indomitable Dunsmore. Mr. Willard filled all and more than the people expected; he ranks with the most intelligent. In zeal and ...

THE ADVOOATR o them would any man lack building material? There is coal enough in the earth to supply fuel to every human being for generations to come. If the government should allow no one to monopolize the mines need anybody freeze henceforth? At present, government protects the men who monopolize unused land, and the quarries, forests and mines; will bring its army, if need be, and murder the people, to help these monopolists to withhold unused lands and building ma terials from the homeless fuel from the freezing. We propose that government shall henceforth protect the people against these monopolists of what God meant for the use of all. And why should not this be done? Why does any man wish to claim land or natural resources he cannot use and which he does not even intend to use? Solely in order that he may compel others to support him by their labor. He wishes to escape the necessity of earning his bread in the sweat of his own brow. That is the sole object; that and the sec...

THE ADVOOATH. HAVE YOU HEABD FEOM MAINE! This question, used 88 a campaign slogan, has come to be a gross in Bult to the intelligent people of Kan sas and other Western states. Twenty-five years ago, when there was not much difference between the interests of the Maine people and those of other states, and when the questions of equal rights and loy alty to the Union crowded every thing else from the campaign, this question was relevant and competent. Then it was that a prominent states man said, "As Maine goes so goes the Union," and the cry, "Have you heard from Maine?" was the cheer ful echo of the September election returns from that state. Times are different now. Yon might almost as well ask, "Have you heard from England?" There is scarcely any interest in common be tween the people of Maine and those of Kansas. They live by manufac turing and the loaning of money. Our resources are agricultural and mining, to which our mercantile in terests are incidental. True, we are all peo...

THIS ADVOCATE. COUBT USURPATION. Anyona who reads without pre conceived bias, the report of court proceedings in Chicago in the Debs contempt case cannot escape the con clusion that the case is prejudged, and no matter what the testimony may be, no American Railway union man can hope for justice in a Chi cago court. It will remain to be de termined whether there is a higher conrt to which these cases may be appealed that is not a servile tool of the corporations. This has become a matter of donbt with a large class of thinking men and women throughout the country. In the contempt case above re ferred to, it has been the policy of the government to simply establish the fact of the commission of violence during the continuance of the late strike, and without offering an iota of testimony to connect the officers or members of tne American Railway union with this violence, to infer their responsibility and punish them accordingly. All day Friday, Sep tember 7, the government introduced ...

TEC HI ADVOOATB. A CHiPm OF Hi JOB MOHRILL'S EEC 08D. Nearly every Kansan remembers the facta relative to the bribery and fraud by which Mr. lngalls waa re elected to the United States senate in 1879. It will be remembered that an investigation of the affair was or dered by the legislature by which this bribery and fraud were exposed. The following transcript from the senate journal will show that Major Morrill was opposed to the investi gation and voted to have it sup pressed. Perhaps his present sup porters would like to explain why he did this. Perhaps they can tell us also why he moved the mdefiaite postpone ment of the resolution in relation to railroads maintaining their general offices in the state; and why he voted as he did upon the resolution memo rializing congress upon financial ques tions. There is now an opportunity for explanations. Page 2G8, senate journal, 1879: Senator Buohaa offered the following res olution and moved ita adoption: Whkbbas, It haa been publicly al...

THE ADVOCATE 0 Congressman Harris. W. A. Harria, congressman-at-large, ia now in the state helping along the campaign of education. While Kansas Pop alia t3 have good reason to be proud of all their repre sentatives in the present congress, they do some special rejoicing in the fact that Colonel Harris represents Kansas in the house committee on Pacific rail roads. This is because, first, the rail road question occupies an important place among Populist principles; second, Kansas is intersected by the Union Pa cific, and, third, there is no man more able or willing to cope with this im portant question than Colonel Harris. He thoroughly understands railroad af fairs, including the methods of stock and bond manipulation, and he knows the history of the Pacific railroads by rote. In addition to all that he is honest, and was never known to be tray a trust. In this last particular, however, he is on a level with John Davis, Jerry Simpson, Win. Baker and T. J. Hudson. Oolonel Harris vig...

Lidie and aeitUmen: I understood before coming here, and heard again to-day, that the subject of the day's thought, bo far as it was, committed to my friends here and my-1 self, was the relation which thejseveral political parties occupy to the laboring interests of the state; in other words, which parties have done the most or promised the most for the laboring classes with the most reasonable pros pect of those promises being fulfilled. Ordinary, on an occasion of this kind, I would deprecate as heartily as my friend who has just taken his seat, the obtrusion of anything partisan in its character, and so far as it is possi ble for me to avoid saying anything partisan in character, it will be done; but the nature of the subject forbids its discussion in generalities alone.

TEE 23 ADVOCATE. 11 and fiscal policies of the republican party the laboringman has suffered in wages and in the conditions and tenure of his employment. This I know is disputed, but the leaders of the domi nant political forces would have the temerity to dispute the evidences of holy writ or declare that black was white if party exigencies required. The uncertainty of continued employ ment is known to all. No one en gaged in a mechanical employment can secure a situation whose tenure de pends upon anything other than the ar bitrary will of his employer. Time contracts are no longer made. Dis missal and blacklisting are the dread of every laborer and the occurrence of every day. The conditions of labor service, es pecially in railway employment, are rapidly approaching those of the peon age of Mexico and the Spanish-American countries. Under the system ob taining in those lands a debtor is permitted to sell himself into the ser vice of hi3 creditor to work till the dis charge of the...

There can be no question as to the attitude of the democratic party upon the subject of free raw materials. Said President Cleveland in his recent let ter to Congressmen Wilson, the author of the house tariff bill: "It must be admitted that no tariff measure can accord with democratic principles and promises, or bear a genuine demo cratic badge, that does not provide for free raw materials." Elsewhere in the same letter, and in the same connec tion, he wrote: "It is quite apparent that this question of free raw materi als does not admit of adjustment on any middle ground, since their subjec tion to any rate of tariff taxation, great or small, is alike violative of demo cratic principle and democratic good faith." Senator Hill, the leader of the demo cratic faction supposed to be at issue with the president on other points of democra...

The most notorious of these are R. W. Blue for Congressman at large and E. N. Morrill for Governor.

2 SINGLE-TAX AS A BE3XDY. All Admit That land Monopoly Is One Great Evil. BY B. T. SNEDIKER. Mr. John W. Bell, like many others who oppose the single-tax, are not content with arguments in a logical way, but are put to the point of having to put words in single-taxers' mouths. For when they say "single-taxers are ready to swear that single-tax contains a panacea for all known political evils," they state a proposition they never see over a single-taxer's signa ture. But they do hold, and that be yond the possibility of a doubt, that land monopoly is the parent of all other monopolies; that the application of the single-tax would crush out land monopoly, give labor the use of free raw material, and other reforms would more easily follow. It requires much thought to cor rectly diagnose a disease. In the science of medicine this is the main point. For a true diagnosis we seem to have credit. The remedy we pro pose is what Mr. Bell objects to. He admits that land monopoly is the greates...

THE ADVOOATa 3 have the Winchester's deadly crack as wage slaves are made to know their places; instead of the eloquence of Adams, Webster or Choate, we have the lobbyists of the trusts and the spe cial pleas of the paid attorneys of class privilege; instead of a prosperous and contented people, we have misery, un rest and despair. Instead of states men seeking to remedy these intolera ble evils, they at once deny their ex istence and say they are natural and inevitable and to grumble at them is a crime. Washington's and Jefferson's resi dences could be reproduced to day for two or three thousand dollars each, but none were homeless then in America. One of me Vanderbilts has six resi dences in this country, costing from 1 to 5 million dollars each, and a palace in London; but 1)4 per cent, of the residents in New York city are ten ants, and nearly one-fourth live in cellars or in single rooms, while the forcible evictions number 30,000 yearly.
