TUB jkDVOOjkTIfJ. 5 A CALL TO ACTION. Let Your Conscience Dictate How Tonr Vote Shall Be Cast Toe day ia almost done; the battle ia won, and it ia a Populist yictory if every voter in the state will vote in ac cordance with his honeat convictions on November 6. That will be a great day In Kansas. It will be a great day in the United States, and all eyes will be on Kansas. For a newspaper to dictate to its read era as to how they shall vote ia pre sumptuous, but to call attention to the situation ia our duty. The country ia now undergoing a great change, and ia struggling to avoid a bloody revolution. To preserve our government the change must come, but it may come peaceably. The people will no longer submit to the misrule that haa cursed ua for so many years, and brought our country to its present condition. In the great march of political pro gress Kansas haa taken her place at the head, aa she did in another important epoch of our history. Shall we keep her there? This question wi...

TI-IHJ ADVOCATE. G AFfSOACIHNQ HILITAXtY DESPOTISM. The man whose partisan preju dices prevent him from seeing the inevitable tendency of public events ia unconsciously lending his aid in the contemplated establishment of a military despotism in this country. We referred recently to the annual report of General Schofield, in which he stated that, by a "wise fore thought," the government began many years ago the erection of large military posts in the vicinity of rail road and commercial centers, in an ticipitation of such events as have transpired in Chicago and throughout the country during the past year. He said several of these posts are now ready for occupancy, and others are in process of construction. He recommended further appropriations of congress for the construction of still other posts of this character and an increase of the standing army to occupy them. That his report is in accord with the settled policy of the authorities at Washington must, now be still more apparen...

TS-IIS ADYOOATUJ. 7 CHANGED THEia MINDS. After the defeat of the republican party in 1892, republican politicians canvassed the situation and arrived at the conclusion that the democratic party would in all probability hold the ascendency in national affairs for a good many years. Mr. Clarkson, president of the republican national league, m a conversation with J. R. Buchanan, of New Jersey, in the winter of 1892 3, told him that this was the opinion of the national re publican committee. He farther stated that the national committee was of the opinion that another re publican victory could not be won upon the tariff issue, and that a new issue would necessarily have to be taken up. He stated, also, that the committee had folly decided to make government ownership of railroads that issue in the next campaign. This was all before the stupendous blunders of the Cleveland adminis tration had been committed, and public sentiment crystalized against Cleveland democracy. The panic of 1893,...

Taken From the Eec ords of Washington Oonnty. At last a man has been found who is willing to defend E. N. Morrill before thd tribunal of public opinion. He is a lawyer, of course. But such a defense! Bead it: To the Editor of the Capital: I notice in Populiit papers many severe attacks on Major E. N. Morrill, the repub lican candidate for crvemor of fcthis state, alleging among other things that some twenty years ago he swindled farmers in Washington, Marshall and other oounties along the line of the St. Joseph fc Denver railway, by quit olaiming lands to which he had no title. During the year 1870 and following, I was and file upon or homestead the land, and numerous oases of litigation grew out of the settlements and filings made between those two dates. Many fraudulent filings were made in order to hold ...

Sir: You insiat in your Shylock ekel, under date of October i, 1894, on ths old soldiers of Kansas voting for E. N. Morrill, R. W. Blue, and, in fact, ths whole robber clan. Now, sir, I hasten to let you know the precise time when I will come out and formally announce that I have joined the republican party, and vote the republican ticket: When republicans load their inclination to lie and steal; when nature stops her onward march to rest; when all the water courses in America flaw up stream; when the sun shines at midnight and the moon at midday; when man forgets to be selfish; when flowers loso their odor and trees shed no leaves; when birds talk and beasts of burden laugh; when damned spirits swap hell for heaven with the angela of light and pay thasn the boot in mean whisky; when impossibilities are in fashion, and no proposition is too absurd to be believed; then you may know th...

TEE233 ADVOCATE. 11 THE PERIODICAL LOVX Which Politicians Have for the Old Soldier Yoters. Editor Advocate: The republican party has always professed such great friendship for, and solicitude about, the soldier boys that a review of the legislation of the last thirty years ought to either indorse or disprove that claim. When the war of the rebellion broke out General J3cott promised in a general order that the boys should be paid in treasury notes as good as gold. This promise was kept so far as the 60 million dollars of demand notes of July 17, 1861, were concerned. But Shylock was not going to be deprived of his golden harvest made possible by the war, and so when more money was necessary to pay the boys and pur chase munitions of war we find that despite the patriotic efforts of Thad deus Stevens and his co-workers, the greenback was discredited by not being receivable for duties on imports or pay able to bondholders for interest. No matter how low the gamblers could force the gr...

A half more people were present than at any previous political meeting ever held in this place. Mr. Slater who is perfectly conversant with Morrill's land grabbing record made a brief but tolling speech in which he told his experience with the land sharks. JERRY AT GREKNSBURG. Greensboro, Oat. 25 By far the largest gathering of the season greeted Jerry Simpson and Judge Foots at Greensbnrg yesterday. Mr. Simpson reasoned with the people in hia masterly manner for two hoars. In tskiug up his thread of thought Mr. Simpson very generously asked the republicans to come up on the rostrum and divide his time. This is far different from what Mr. Long has ever dona at one of his meetings. Mr. Simpson made clear from a cause and effect standpoint the present conditions of our oountry and offered relief entirely ...

ADVOOATB. 13 ' EEPUBLIOAN EXTRAVAGANCE AKD POPULIST E00H0MY. Continued from page l. fact, that the people's party has administered state affairs better, more economically, and given better service than under republicans. And this has been done in the face of bitter opposition, calumny, libel, and slander. Think of it ! Republicans, nearly one-half of our population, would rather see the laws trampled under foot than see populists succeed in enforcing them. They have tried in every conceiva ble manner to throw obstructions in the way of good government, simply because they do not propose to allow the populists to succeed, if in their power to prevent it. And. notwithstanding all of these things, we point with considerable pride to he nbove showing in favor of the populist administration. And with the experi- nee .f two years in state affairs we can make a muoh better record in the future. Daniel C. Zxbohsb. - n-tr.hpr 17, 1894. Kansas City Live Stock. Kansas City, Oct 29.

THE ADVOCATE. is prlvilego of disposing of more than a mil lion by deviso or descent would not affect one in 10, 000 of the people. In short, such limitations would tend to discourage not honest enterprise or industry, but stock jobbing, trickery and other questionable methods of acquiring vast fortunes. We have already abolished primogeni ture, by which the eldest son, to the ex clusion of all other children, inherits the entire landed estate of his ancestor, and no one In this country at this day would think of restoring that right, although it still obtains in England. If limitations 6hould be put upon the disposition of vast estates by will or descent, future genera tions would look upon our present laws, which allow such estates to be perpetuated in certain families, with the same diafavor with which we now look upon the laws of primogeniture. Evasions of law limiting the amount of property to be devised or inherited by con veyances during life could be prohibited in like manne...

2 THE ADVOCATE. A PAIE OF CEAMS. By II. M. CHAPTER II. A SHUT-OUT AND A FIRE. The storm which threatened in the early part of the evening passed aside or expended itself long before its van guard reached the sleeping ancient port. But into the murkiness of Net tie's thoughts came the sweep of the tempest Watson had loosed, and set tled them completely. Everything was plain to her now. She had not ex pressed an inadvertent whim when she declared, that whatever God was, or could do for her, in proportion to her distrust of him, must be her confidence in herself, and her reliance upon her own resources. She had speculated vaguely upon many topics. This blow in the face of pride, heretofore so high and clean, must be atoned for. Now her speculations must cease. She must act. Her instinct told her that the fight had just commenced. She had watched Watson in his association'' with the prettiest girls in the loom room, and knew his characteristics. She smiled bitterly to her plain fea ture...

But -the match burned down to her fingers, she dropped it, and all was dark again. She was not to be baffled by one failure. "There must be some waste about here," she said aloud in a hushed tone, and she groped along the floor until she found a handful of Byings which had been swept together into a ball. Again she lighted a match and touched the flame to the waste. As she waived it here and there the in stant it burned, the thought for the first time came to her that she might be watched. But just as the fibers of the fluffy torch died out in a pungent smoke, she saw the pin half buried in dust, and stooping, secured it. It was but an instant more until she had raised the sash, and holding it with one hand, worked her way outward. Then she softly lowered the window, and without a look backward rapidly retraced her steps homeward. An hour aft...

There may have been those who believed that this ticket had the ghost of a show of success. In view of the facts developed by the campaign it requires a great stretch of credulity to believe this. That the two committees have worked together for republican success is too apparent to be denied. Their papers and publio speakers have peddled the same falsehoods and slanders against the common enemy. There has been no discrimi nation in the advertisement of their meetings. Republican and Over myer side-show meetings were pub lished in the same columns.
