Chicago, May 28. One hundred and twenty-five thousand people after a week of toil took in the fair grounds to day, and with souls freed from care drank in inspiring musio and feasted their eyes upon the artistic and natural beauties of the White City, while their minds were improved by studying the works of genius and industry. It was the first open Sunday, and it was a success. The Sabbath sun was butstwo hours old when the people began to come into the grounds. All modes of transporta tion brought their quotas, and from the steamer piers and the railroads came long lines of people. But the masses did not begin to arrive until afternoon. Be ginning about 2 o'clock the multitudes flocked into the grounds at every gate and by 4 o'clock (50,000 people were in side the enclosure. The people...

2 IS MONEY WEALTH? Editor Advocate: When an original greenbacker falls from grace and adopts usury as a means of wealth, it is not strange that he fails to see anything wrong in our national finances. That system is especially arranged and man aged to suit bankers, and our great pub lic officers are considered wise or unwise in proportion as they please or displease .Wall street. Then when our fallen green backer adopts the single tax theory merely to quiet his conscience, without understanding it, he is quite beyond hope. There is no use discussing with him further except in the most public manner for the good of others. This is my reason, Mr. Editor, for asking further space in your valuable and widely circu lating columns, to reply to Brother Snediker. In his last article he spends half a col umn in his tangle about the use of words. He says that "worth," "value" and " price " are interchangeable. Then he immediately contradicts himself by saying that values do not attach to thin...

THE ADVOCATE. 3 nees of labor, increase of private debts, commercial bankruptcies, loss of homes and general calamity. Ourown state, on January 1, 1890, had $235,000,000 of mortgage debts resting on our real es tate. That real estate ia now rapidly passing into the hands of the money lords at merely nominal figures. Talk of going west for cheap lands, as my critic claims. Here are good homes for noth ing! Farms passing into the hands of the money lords for less than the cost of improvements! Thirty-five mortgages were recently foreclosed, I understand in a Kansas county, at a single sitting of the court The debts were about $G4, 000, showing that the lands were origin ally worth at least $130,000. When the court processes were complete and the lands were safely in the money lord's hands, $28,000 in the form of judgments still hung over the heads of the debtors Nor is Kansas alone. Look at Illinois, with $384,000,000 of mortgage indebted ness resting on her real estate! Then go to Ne...

THE ADVOCATE. 5 SOME KEILE0TI0H3. Charles Foster, late member of con greas, governor of Ohio, secretary of the treasury, millionaire; at the pres ent time if he were to pay his credi tors, so far aa his means would go, he would be Charles Foster, pauper. What a transformation in these pip ing times of peace and prosperity! Mr. Foster was what they call a business statesman. That is why he was recognized by President Harri son as eminently fitted for the posi tion of secretary of the treasury. He was a "successful business man," not one of the store box variety of states men who theorize about matters of finance and howl like blazes every time the pauper makers of London and their assistants in America turn on the screws and close out a small per cent, of our farmers, merchants and small manufacturers. No, he was one of the noble men who be lieve in things as they are. He stood next to John Sherman as- a champion of our present financial system. He was in favor of the issue of green ...

6 THE ADVOCATE. IT IS INDEED SUEPEISIEG. The Arkansas City Traveler, speak ing of the Advocate's reference to the advertisement of five farms in Lyon county and seven homes in the city of Emporia at sheriff a sale, says: In riew of the faot that Lyon ia one of the populous oountiea of the state, it is only surprising that there are not more than twelve persons in the oounty who failed to meet their obligations. We agree with the Traveler per fectly in the above statement. Under a financial system which has caused a shrinkage of two-thirds in all values except that of gold, it is surprising that more farms and homes are not sacrificed than there really are. Bat the Traveler overlooks one very important fact. This batch of twelve has been ground out at a sin gle term of court, and it must not be forgotten that the mill continues to grind. If the Traveler would keep its eyes open and not permit itself to be blinded by its party idolatry, it would not fail to observe the constant transf...

L-fIE ADVOOATB. 7 AN OPEN LETTEE. (Continued Jrom page 3.) constitutional provision respecting a stand ard of weights and measures to that con ferring the power to coin money and regu late ita value. It is said there can be no uniform standard of weights without weight, or of measure without length or space, and we are asked how anything can be made a standard of value which has itself no value. It is hardly correot to speak of a standard of value. The consti tution does not speak of it. It contem plates a standard for that which has gravity, or extension; but value is an ideal thing. The coinage aota fix its unit as a dollar, but the gold or silver thing we call a dollar is in no sense a standard of a dollar." Turning to the constitution of the Jnited States, we read: "The congress 3hall haye power to coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures." Turning to United States supreme court reports, 12 Wallace, G87, we find th...

The wholeeale and retail furniture house of Farnham & Crawford was closed to-day on a deed of trust in favor of the Sedalia National bank for $3,834, with Henry Lamm as trustee. Liabilities, $10,000; assets, $12, 000. The firm hopes to so arrange mat ters as to be able to resume business. New York, May 22. The Seaboard National bank to-day notified the Na tional Bank of Deposit that it would not clear for it hereafter. The National Bank of Deposit was chartered in 1887. Its capital was $300,000, and, according to its latest statement, it had a net sur plus of $00,000, and undivided profits of $22,300. The president of the bank is Lewis Ransom. The bank is a small concern, and never figured to any great extent in the financial world. The clear ing ho.iee committee has been requested to inspect the assets of the bank, and their decision will govern whether the bank shall liquidate or not. The Sea board bank, while not d...

-JL-JHE ADVOCATE, 9 Our Chicago Letter. Editor Advocate: When the imagi native genius of Jules Verne oonceived his "Tour of the World in Eighty Days," men smiled as they would at the vagaries of some demented creature. But the human intellect has annihilated dis tance, until one may not only go around the world in less than eighty days, but he may come to Chicago about July, or later, and practically stand still while the world goes around him, seeing or learning more in two or three weeks from this observatory than in many months or perhaps years of travel The rain has abated and the sun actu ally ehines, and Chicago is in raptures over a few bright days, while Kansans draw a long sigh of intense relief as though just liberated from a dungeon of perpetual gloom, warily laying -aside overcoats and umbrellas or letting the fires burn low. You may almost tell a Kansan at sight in Chicago by the way he shivers or growls at the mud as he realizes for the first time what "sunny Kansas " ...

WASHINGTON NOTES. Editor- Advocate: Is existence plod d;ng proeaicallj along in Kansas? I think it cannot be. It would dislocate the entire theory of the unity of nature did not the billowy prairies of beauteous Kansas undulate with unwonted sport ivenees in response to the pulsating ecstasy now surging through the capital city in earthquake throbs. If, after Mr. Eugene Wars, "I love Kansas because in Kansas something is always trying to happen," so also do I love Washington because in Washington something always is happening. The supreme something whioh has just hap ,penedis the arrival of the Spanish In fanta. This is the first time in the long, dull, unillumined history of our plebeian existence that we, as a nation, have had the honor of entertaining and footing the hotel bills for royalty. Could we, as a nation, have but dreamed of the tumultuous felicity which the entertain ment of one, royal by divine right, would have engendered we would long since have indulged in the luxur...

THE. ADVOCATE. 11 A BOOH TO HUMANITY. What a Graduate of the Keeley Institute Has to Say of the Cure. "Whoever is engaged in the Keeley work is in partnership with God," said that distinguished orator and friend of humanity, Mrs. Mary . Lease, in a re cent lecture before a large audience in Topeka. Others most eloquent on ros trum and in pulpit are paying tributes no less powerful than the above to the wonderful magic of a remedy born of the inspiration of one who has immortalized himself in giving to the world so price less a treasure. If there is great re joicing among those not afflicted that the demon which has fastened its poison ous and destroying fangs upon their fel lows now shrinks and flees in dismay, utterly routed by the power of the great remedy, what gratitude and thankful ness should exist in the hearts of those emancipated from the curse of a terrible affliction and restored to health and to reason. Every one who in response to the Keeley trumpet, whose blast now re ...

THE ADVOCATE. 12 The Sovereignty of the Hation Debased to Serfdom. Editor Advocate: Some years since, under a state of things somewhat simi lar to the present, with reference to the labor and the laborers of the country, a very high authority (the late Wm. Cullen Bryant, of New York) asked the question: "Are there American demo crataleft who remember the old doc trines of the rights of men, the dignity of labor, the superiority of man to his accidents, the injustice of class legisla tion, the ability of capital to take care of itself, the duty of government to guard the interests of the workingman, the supreme right of labor to insist on the highest wages that the demand will sus tain and the necessity to republican in stitutions of at least allowing those who have nothing but their hands and heads to improve their condition by all the facilities which are afforded by a free country, just and liberal laws, and a wise policy?" My attention is drawn to this subject by developments in ...

THE ADVOCATE. 13 A Lamentable State of Affairs. A well known republican politician suggests that the fight this year will be on county clerks. There are now 105 counties in the state, one less than last year, and each one will elect a county clerk, who next year will certify to the election returns on congressmen, state officers and members of the legislature. As was demonstrated last fall in the Haskell county case, county clerks are possessed of remarkable power, pro vided they wish to change figures and certify to false returns. There is an evident determination on the part of both republicans and Populists to make the battle this year on clerk, and candi dates for all other positions will be traded for that on both sides. The vote on that office next November will con sequently be a fair evidence of the strength of the two parties. We take the above from the editorial columns of the Ottawa Republican. It was taken by them from a Topeka re publican exchange, and is being passed a...

THE ADVOCATE. It's a Lie. Marion, Kaa May 15, 1893. Major A. Paul, Editor Tidings, Emporia, Djcar Sib I received your favor of the 13th, enclosing a clippies from the Chase County Leader charging rae with appearing before the board of railroad commissioners as attorney for the Union Pacific and Missouri Pacific railroads; and also with preventing in their interest the house organization last winter until too late to enact railroad legislation. The editor of this paper is W. A. Mor gan, a scurrilous cur to whom I have not spoken for fifteen years, and who uses his paper aa a vehicle for libel and mis information about those whom he dis likes. As to the first charge, it well illustrates an old proverb I have somewhere heard, "That a half truth is a whole lie." I re cently appeared before the railroad com missioners and also before the courts, in behalf of the companies named, not, how ever, in opposition to some defrauded shipper or injured employe, but in a con test with another corp...

VOI V. HO. 23. 1 91.00 A TSAB. f THE COAL MINEB3. They are Still Holding Out Against a Reduction of Prices. The coal miner's trouble which as sumed the nature of a walk-out at Girard and Pittsburg on May 19, has spread to other mines and is still unsettled. The trouble grew out of a determination on the part of the operators to cut the scale down to such a rate as would more than cover the difference made by the new screen law in favor of the miners. They took advantage of the dull season so as to bring the miners to terms before the law should go into effect But the men have the sympathy of all union miners and last week those of Leavenworth and Osage counties held meetings, at which they showed a decided inclination to take sides against the operators President Walters, of the Miner's Union, fand member of the legislature) has been busy attending these meetings. He was in Topeka on Friday and ex pressed his views to the Capital aa follows: 44 No one can regret more than I do that ...

THE ADVOCATE. WASHINGTON OORBESPONDENOE. Editor Advocate: Beautiful Wash ington is pre-eminently fond of conven tions and of distinguished visitors. The capitol, the White House, the monument, the department buildings and Mount Vernon, all these are on the regular pro gram of entertainment, and are the ob jects of rapturous attention from loyal American citizens who cherish for them a peculiar fondness born of a sense of proprietorship. For are not these proud buildings the nation's property, and is not each native born or naturalized vis itor an integral part of the nation, and therefore joint owner holding as much stock as any other fellow ? There was no beauty-spot in all our ch aimed domain that we did not exhibit to Eulalie, spreading carpet on the side walk where her royal feet must tread. There is no broad, tree-sentineled ave nue, or glorious park of velvety green, of bloeeoming plants, of playing fountains and noble statues, that we have not proudly piloted the delegates to...

THE ADVOCATE, 3 A SUNDAY IN CHICAGO. Editor Advocate: So many pros pective visitors are wcndering just how they will spend Sunday in the city, that I should like to tell how I spent one Sun day in Chicago; not that it was mate rially different from any other Sunday here, save in the amount of personal pleasure to me, but it was far different from Sunday in our western towns or a New England village. A New Englander would fancy himself a Rip Van Winkle awakening on the Fourth of July, font is the merriest, wickedest day of the week, and in many lines of business it is the busiest day. On the morning in question my hus band was to arrive on the 7:15 train. As the street cars were not running on schedule time and a long walk was be fore me, I started to the Folk street depot a little before 6 a. m. Chicago is about 30 degrees colder than Kansas, and the damp, chilly wind made no exception that morning as it quickened my paces and sent me shivering along the street, despite a fairly hea...
