THE ADVOCATE. 13 AN ADDRESS To the Executive Committees of the People's Paity in the Several States. Gentlemen : Time sufficient has elapsed (or the dust and din of the great political battle of 1892 to pasa over and for us to study our successes and fail ures. Our successes have been many and far-reaching and our failures few and insignificant, when we take into con sideration the means at the disposal of those, both state and national, who were trusted with the management of the cam paign. Most of the state committees de serve the everlasting gratitude of every reformer in the land for the noble and self-sacrificing work performed. There sulta are wonderful, when we consider .the fact that many of our state commit tees had scarcely means enough at their command to defray postage bills. Very few of our men had any experience in running political campaigns, and all mistakes and seeming negligence, caused by lack of means etc., can and should be forgiven; but it has been found in som...

14 THE ADVOCATE. " 00NTEA0T3 " What American "Peers" Are Coming To In The PeovU of last February 19, c copy was published of the contract upon which one of the leading street car com panies engages its employes. As pointed out at the time, the contract was a can cature of the conception of the word "Contract;" it was unilateral to an inde cent extent; the applicant for employ ment pledged himself to give surety, if desired; he relinquished his statutory rights to damages for physical injuries to-himself, and at the same time assumed the duty of indemnifying the company for any damage that might accrue to it through his fault; he agreed to be em ployed at the pleasure of the company, thereby taking himself out of the opera tion of the board of arbitration; he waived all rights to wages, if suspended; and he was made to lift his boss, the company, out of the penalty clause. Such a contract, it would seem, reached the extreme point of capitalist tyranny and marked the extreme depth of ...

VOL. V. HO. SI. ! (1.00 A YKAB. ! OUB PEOSPESITY COLUMN. Some of the Most Noted Failures of the Past Week. Bloomington, III., May 16. The Ex change bank, of Normal, a suburb of this city, closed its doors to-day. It was a private banking institution, conducted by W. H. Schureman, and the cause is doing business without adequate capital. The deposits average $90,000, and the capital stock is supposed to be $95,000. Waterloo, Ia., May 16. The First National bank, of Cedar Falls, suspended at the close of business, being involved by the assignment of W. M. Fields & Bra, which was filed this morning, and who control a majority of the stock. Field & Bro. are among the largest im porters of draft and coach horses in the west, and their failure is due to the de cline of the stock which they handle. The liabilities of the bank are estimated at ,1100,000 to $150,000, while the personal liabilities of Fields will be fully as much more. No statement of assets can be given, the resource...

2 WASHINGTON OORRESPOm)E3JOE. Editor Advocate: A notable com pany of gentlemen gathered around the banqueting board one evening thia week in honor of J. II. Eckles, the new comp troller of the currency. Many of the gentlemen present were cultivated and intelligent, all were wide awake and en terprising. The assemblage represented $50,000,000. There always is noticeable in a gathering of men representing pros perous business enterprises a self-reli-' ant, manly, well-fed, independent air and manner. This company was composed of bankers and prominent loan and real estate men of Washington, Baltimore and neighboring towns. Without doubt each of these gentlemen is the owner of a luxurious home. Doubtless they avail themselves and supply their families with all the luxuries which our modern civilization affords, and in so doing they are entirely right; having the means for the indulgence in all the appliances and advantages of modern life they would be exceedingly foolish not to do bo.

THE ADVOCATE. my childhood, I am convinced that the snug, sleek bays belonging to President Cleveland laughed ba! ha! when Mr. Comptroller Eckles gave away the pa ternalistic government at the banquet And, being quite impartial in regard to both republicanism and democracy, I accord the same degree of' intelligence and keen appreciation of humor to the equally snug, sleek bays belonging to the ex-president and now residing at Indian apolis. Hence I am sure these latter laughed ha! ha! the other day when Gov ernor McKinley remarked on the im pending financial disturbance. The governor said: ' . "There is no danger of a panic. Tbe peo ple, irrespective of party, have oonfidenoe in President Cleveland." The Indianapolis bays fairly shook their sleek sides at this, for the cute fellows remembered how utterly without confidence the Protective-Tariff-Governor was last summer and fall in the Tariff- for-Revenue-Man. The Harrison bays remembered how Governor McKinley predicted all sorts of ...

THE ADVOCATE. 5 THE MUS01TDTE OUTRAGE. An immense mass meeting of citi zens of Muscatine, la., was held at the opera house on the evening of May 11 to take action respecting the blowing up of the residences of three citizens of that city, an account of which was published last week. A large reward was offered for the per petrators of the crime, and steps were taken to rebuild the residences de stroyed. This outrage is a legitimate fruit age of the infernal traffic that is re sponsible for it, and still good citi zens of this and other states seem in doubt about the propriety of includ ing that business in the list of evils against which we should declare a ceaseless and relentless warfare. Such weakness is pitiable. The Muscatine mass meeting adopted the following resolutions: Whereas, A most heinous crime has been oommitted, resulting in the destruction of the homes and jeopardizing the beet fami lies ff our city; and Whereas, We feel greatly alarmed that such a condition of societ...

C THE ADVOCATE. A STATE EMPLOYMENT BUREAU. One of the best things we have seen suggested lately is the scheme of Labor Commissioner Todd to estab lish a state employment bureau, pro vided he can devise ways and means, in the absence of any appropriation for the purpose, to make such bureau self-sustaining. The need of it arises from two causes: First There are thousands of able-bodied men and women, now idle, who are in absojute need of steady employment whereby to purchase their daily bread. Many of these can be provided for by bringing them into communication with those who may need their ser vices. Second The usual so-called employment agency is as a rule de signed to rob those seeking employ ment of the little they possess.- These snide concerns not unfrequently prac tice the most outrageous deception upon their victims concerning the character of the employment to be secured for them and the wages they are to receive. Men and women are not unfrequently sent to distant lo caliti...

-jL-flE ADVOCATE. 7 A CHAPTER ON THE SUBJECT OF PKOSPEEITY. Editor Advocate: I wish to write on the subject of "prosperity," which plutocratio organs would have us be lieve is prevalent in our land. No doubt the reader of daily papers has noticed the advertised prosperity that exists, and the excellent conditions of the people; and lastly, how the banks of the country are going to the wall at a rapid rate, until within the last forty days some sixty-five banks have suc cmbed to the inevitable monetary sys tem of the gold-bugs. The daily papers of May 13 gave to the public the news that twenty-five banks failed in one day, aggregating a loss of '.$3,000,000. The majority of these banks were under the thumbs of the large banks of the east, and they were forced to the wall on ac count, as they say, of a "stringency in the money market." I wish to call your attention to the re port of superintendent of banks aid trust companies of New York, for 1889. Turn to pages 32 to 3G inclusive and...

8 THE -A.D"V"OOTEa. PACTS VS. FIOTHm. Editor Advocate: M7 article in re gard to an extra session in your paper appears to have turned the Ananias end of the Capital loose on my poor head; and while I appreciate Brother Hudson's good will in trying to make a great man of me, the same as he did Jerry Simpson, Got. Lewelling and many others whom he discovered next day after a Populist convention, and did more than all our reform press and public speakers com bined to elect them, hence I say I feel grateful for the good will and effort of the man who is not state printer, and only answer this to show that a republi can editor can write a half-column ar ticle and never refer to the truth once. It reminds one forcibly of the old fellow who lived in York state and was counted one of the richest and most influential men in the community. A young min ister, fresh from a theological school, was sent to the town with instructions to build up a church, and a pointer that Mr. Leach, the influent...

THIS ADVOCATE. ETOEHOES OP PROSPERITY. TheTopeka Advocate, in a recent is sue, stated that in looking over some of its exchange papers it found 267 aheriff sales advertised daring one week in thirt y-seven counties of the state. Among other things it also suggested that the Capital might gather from these sales quite a harvest of "mortgages released" for its prosperity column. Our esteemed contemporary of the Scott City Republi can did not relish the Advocate's lan guage, and says "it emanated from a brain that was grossly ignorant of, or strongly prejudiced against Kansas and warned for the sole purpose of injuring Kansas." Then the judge stopped "standing up" long enough to strike western Kansas, and many of the good people that live here, as well as those who used to live here, the severest and unkind b'ow that we have noticed for many moons: " No ddubt the thirty-seven counties referred to embrace the western part of the state where most of the foreclosures occur, of which' not ...

v THE ADVOCATE. 11 DOFT BE POOLED. Well, they executed Carlyle W. Harris for the murder of his wife. After a nearly two years' contest between de fense and prosecution, prosecution won; and the state has, or imagines it has, once more given a striking demonstra tion that it holds human life in the highest sanctity; and has shown to the world that in America particularly in New York no one can take the life of another with impunity. It has shown that it will spare no expense, no time, no machinery of law in tracking, like a sleuth, through all the devious wind ings and turnings and doublings of the most elaborate and ingenious legal de fense, the cunningest murderer, to bring to justice the taker of another's life. The fact that the state insists on knowing how its citizens from its rich est, highest and most eminent, down to its lowest, dingiest, poorest and most ob scuredie; that it demands documentary proofs that the decease of the very small est of its citizens is all natural and...

A murderer's LAST WORDS BEFORE THE COURT. (BT TIIXIB MOHQAIf, 8CBA5T0N, PA.) "Prisoner at the bar, hare you any thing to eay why sentence of death shall not be passed upon you?" A solemn hush fell oyer the crowded court room and every person waited in almost breathless expectation for answer to the judge's question. VJWill the prisoner answer? Is there nothing that will make him show some sign of emotion? Will he maintain the cold, indifferent attitude that has been shown through the long trial, even to the place of exe cution? Such were the questions that passed through the minds of those that had followed the case from day to day. The judge still waited in dignified silence. Not a whisper was heard anywhere and the situation had become painfully oppressive, when the prisoner was seen to move, his head was rai...

THE ADVOCATE. 13 A Jayhawker in Chicago. Editor Advocate: The weather here has gradually improved day by day and the attendance at the Columbian Exposition has increased proportionately. - Despite the unfinished condition of buildings, grounds and ex hibits, the number of visitors is far greater than at the Centennial during the first days after it was opened. Last Sunday immense crowds came to the gates in hope of gaining entrance, but they went away disappointed. The authorities have thus far resolutely re fused to open more than six days in a week. It remains to be seen how long they will persist in this course which is upheld by many Christians of the nation but which is bitterly fought by the press of Chicago. That there are strong arguments both for and against Sunday opening, can scarcely be controverted. Work has gone on briskly. The piles of broken stones over which the people gingerly picked their way have gradually given place to hard, smooth streets and pathways. There i...

THE ADVOCATE. 14 Ignorance and Eepnblicanism. First Assistant Secretary of the In terior Sims, of Mississippi, says that the "new constitution" in hia state "ia work ing without friction. It gives complete satisfaction to our people. Under it the white people representing the intelli gence of the state will govern. A large proportion of the colored people being illiterate are barred from casting a bal lot Of course there are ignorant white men who are cut off from voting in the same way, for the law was not meant to apply to the blacks alone. If any one thinks this denial of the suffrage is un just, let him consider that the state of Mississippi is doing all it can to abolish illiteracy in both races. Its public schools are to-day educating more col ored children than, white, yet the cost of sustaining them is borne almost en tirely by the white people. We believe that education is a prerequisite to citizen ship and the schools are doing the work of preparation. When that is affecte...
