6 THE ADVOCATE. IT 13 VEST TIRESOME. There is a great amount of gush and sentiment being wasted over the resolution of the National Republican League upon the suffrage question. Women who have devoted their lives to agitation of the subject, an4 who have met with rebuffs and insults from republican conventions in years gone by, now applaud this body of representative men of the party for a resolution which is absolutely non committal and meaningless. To the conscientious suffragist these things are very tiresome. Some of the noted women who have done much in the past to edu cate public sentiment upon this ques tion, and who have seemed to be very enthusiastic for the political equality of the sex, are now reported as say ing that they prefer to remain dis f ranchised unless suffrage is granted by the republican party. Such exhi bitions of party bigotry and idolatry will have a tendency to weaken the support that might be concentrated upon the constitutional amendment in this state. ...

jHE ADVOCATE. 7 A Comparison of Iowa and Kansas Sail road Bates. Editor Advocate: I wish to give the public the benefit of some statistics I have gathered in regard to the railroads of Kansas and Iowa, their earnings, ton nage, wages paid employes, etc The lat est Iowa and Kansas reports will be my guide, and can say my conclusions are correct, if the reports are true. How is it that the same roads that do business in Kansas do business in Iowa and make money under the control of a maximum freight rate law, while some people eay that if Kansas adopts the same law these same roads will become bankrupt in Kansas? From these reports I have gathered the following facts: Kansas has 8,874 miles of road; Iowa, 8,407 miles. Kansas roads employ 27,225 workmen at a salary of $14,408,000 per year. Iowa roads em ploy 29,529 workmen at 317,548,000 per year. Iowa roads for entire lines carried in 1892 54,383,000 tons of freight; Kansas roads, 45,903,000 tons.

THE ADVOCATE. 11 BAMEES Backing Emperor William in Germany and Cleveland Backing Bankers in America. I see that the bankers of Berlin are backing the emperor in his attempt to destroy freedom in the German empire. The dispatches from the continent an nounce that they are subscribing lib erally for the new campaign. This is not strange. All the instincts of the money power are on the side of despot ism; indeed, no despots of modern times are more merciless than the money powers of England and America. The bankers are aiding the emperor to destroy the political rights of the people, and they will confidently look to the emperor when successful to aid them in further enslaving the people. There is a slight difference between the attitude of the German bankers and the emperor, and the president and our American bankers. In the former case the bankers are backing the emperor; with us, President Cleveland is backing the bankers. This statement is borne oat by the fact that Mr. Carlisle ha...

THE ADVOCATE. Earn Power Methods. Three prominent citizena of Muaca tine, la., John Mahin, E. M. Keasinger and F. Koaenberger recently petitioned the courts for injunctions closing np the lawless saloons which had been opened in that city. Their petitions were granted. An hour after midnight of May 10, the day on which the lawless sa loons were ordered to close, the houses of Mahin, Keasinger and Roaenberger, filled with .their sleeping families, were blown up with dynamite or gunpowder. The three houses were a mile apart, yet the explosions which wrecked them were almost simultaneous. There is no pos sible explanation of the deed, except a conspiracy of liquor men to murder, with their innocent wives and children, the men who had been instrumental in compelling obedience to the law. The civil authorities offered a reward of $2,000 for the apprehension of the cul prits, and a roaea meeting of indignant citizena swf lied the sum to $5,000. A few weeks ago in the same state the house ...

TUB ADVOCATE. 3 41 per cent; but both these have fell off since. So the W8ge earner was falling behind then and has unquestionably still more since 1881. Again, in 1870, the value of the manufactured goods produced in this country was $1,800,000, 000; in 1880 it was nearly $5,300,000,000. And this was the pile to be divided; and the number of persons among whom it was to be divided had grown about CO per cent, or about one fifth as fast as the pile, and now, when the toilers come up to get their share of the pile, how muc did they get respectively or collectively? The product is three times what it was in 1800, and, of course, the producer ought to receive in proportion. Does he? Not much. He actually gets less, according to Mr. Wright, and as his own experience demonstrates, while capital, of course, gets the balance, and thus has had its returns doubled and trebled. But to labor it says: "You are getting as much as you ever got, so be satisfied." I repeat, those who don't work are...

M JiE ADVOCATE. 7 POPULISTS AND CAPITALISTS. Relations Between the Two Discussed by a Nebraskan. The Populists of Kansas ask the aid of their political sympathizers in Nebraska, the two Dakotas, Oklahoma and Texas to provide means for building a great railroad from Bismark to the Gulf of Mexico. It requires money to build railroads. The Populists in the states named have no money. They can obtain money only by borrowing it. Their plain invokes state aid by using the publio credit for negotiating loans. It would be instructive to see a Pop ulist politician in the oharaoter of agent for a Populist state administration approaoh a capitalist and ask for money on the credit of individuals, or land owners, or of the government in states where Populist legis lation prevails. Withareoord of repudia tion, they oould not borrow a cent.
