5 Gloating Over Unc'e Sam's Misfortune, Continued from pafl I. cats'fl j ib lot bid was accepted prices ad vanced almost to their former figure. Thia may have been due solely to nat ural market influences. There is no evidence that the syndicate bankers had anything whatever to do with it. Bat the ciroumstance ia auspicious, and it suggests that Mr. Stewart and his fel low bankers were planning all the time to make a big profit out cf the govern ment, while ostentatiously announcing that they were patriotically coming to the aid of the national treasury. It seems probable now that, if the sec retary of the treasury had possessed the power to issue a low interest abort term bond, with authority which could not be questioned, he could have borrowed money in Naw York for 2 per cent He certainly could have done it for 1 per cent. The British 1 per cant, console are selling for 3 per cant premium. So large an amount of them is outstanding that the available low interest funds in E island...

G THE GOVERNMENT BOND BOBBEHY. The present moment, when now government bonds are being sup plied to satisfy the cravings of the piratical crew that has preyed upon the industries and Absorbed the wealth of the nation for more than a quarter of a century, is an opportune time for rational thinking men and women to look "into the methods of the treasury department in the issue of these seurities and in the manipu lation of subsequent accounts relat ing to them. The Advocate has al ready published in full the report of a United States senate investigating committee giving a complete exposi tion of these methods; yet it is doubt ful if any Tgreat number of people remeber very much of the details of that report At all events, such facts as it contains cannot be kept too con stantly before the public; and now, when an opportunity is afforded for a repetition of the gigantic swindles of the people by treasury officials that have characterized former issues of bonds, perhaps the infamy of t...

THE ADVOOATH 7 ence was but $72 58-1 80, while for the year ending Jane 30, 1861, the register's state ment is more than that of the secretary by $2SG,954.96. This showB that the resistor's debt statement from the beginning of the government, as kept by issues and redemp tions, down to and including 1861, was less than that of the secretary made up by the new mode of computing it by reoeipts and expenditures, and that the entire increase ia between 18CI and 1870. It is a singular fact that the new mode of statement adopted by the secretary m 1870 made but little ohange in th public debt previous to 1861, while from 1861 to 1870 a very large increase appears. This period covers the immense bond issues of the war period and the immense opportunities for fraud ulent issues. We shall not go into the subject of changes and erasures in the books of final entry as exhib ited by this report It is merely the present purpose to call attention to the frauds that have been committed and to show...

Laws Favored the Sex In Those Days High Position Conceded the Mother, the Wife and the Widow Women Dealt Much In Slave Adopted Children. The marvelous resurrection of the past which has resulted from the labors of the explorer and decipherer often raises strange problems for the student of social life In this nineteenth century. The vast amount of literary material recording ev ery detail of the social life of Chaldea and Egypt 5,000 years ago enables us to con struct a picture of the life of those days more complete in its accuracy than we can make of that of the manners and cus toms of our own ancestors, the ancient Britons.

On the clear moonlight night after its completion the new couple sat on the sweet soft grass ear its rude door and discussed the achievement. "It is of course nothing but a hole in the ground," Calvin said, "but somehow, dear. I feel that it is our first home, and that we shall grow to love it." And the poor girl assented, a little pride in the corner of her heart in spiring her tears as she kissed him. She was proud in the possession of a man so strong, so capable, and this humble evidence was to her abundant hostage for the future of the destiny he could conquer, and which should be the heritage of both for many blessed years. At the same moment, Deborah was seated with her spouse on the other side of the little mound dwelling and administ...

One Sunday morning the new colon ists loaded themselves and sufficient rations and forage for the day into the wagon and drove about ten miles down the little river to "a grove meeting" which had been held for a week, and to which all the residents within an ac cessible distance tended on .that morning. The almost limitless ex panse of slightly undulating prairie, spotted sparsely by patches of broken sod, the deep black of the overturned turf showing a fine contrast to its broad, vivid setting of emerald this the scene, requiring scarce more con ventional elements for a sketch than could be afforded by touches of ebon and emerald upon a palette of blue. The few "improvements," the generic name in the west for all manner of blemishes piled upon the fair face of nature, from a hollow square of poles, figuring at the land office as a pre-emption tenement, to an ambitious archi tectural abortion of p...

Is it to stand over the people with a club and compel them to submit in peace to conditions that 8re intolerable? If men'ar idle and starving it is a reason why govern ment should make any necessary ex penditure to arrest such a calamity.

There has been and still is a deter mination on the part of a few men who have identified themselves with the People's party to narrow its plat form to a single issue.

6 071-1 HI ADVO OJbJT ID. T2S 8INSLE-TAX. NO. IV. Friend Wakefield: la the opening sentence of your communication this week, after begging pardon for locat ing me in the wrong camp, you Bay: It is diffl oult to argue with one whose oon viotions are unknown. Pardon me for suggesting again that my convictions, except upon the single-tax, are not under discussion. How does it matter, then, what they may be? I think if you would try right hard, you might discover what my convictions are upon this subject, and that will be sufficient for the present. I quote again: Tour oontention that the single-tax is not an unshiftable tax, beoauae the producer may, under some circumstances, add taxes to other items in oost of production, is not an answer to my demonstration that the landlord cannot shift the tax to his tenant. To which I reply: (1) You have not demonstrated any such thing nor have you attempted to. Here is what you asserted in your former letter: What eingle-taxers desire, and wha th...

TEIHJ ADVOOAT3. 7 THE PIGLF-TAI. An Able Champion Presents His Side of the Case. BY W. H T WAKEFIELD. Pardon me for having located you in the wrorg camp, bat your real senti ments have been to me very elusive, and it is difficult to argue with one whose convictions are unknown. Your contention that the single-tax is not an unshif table tax, because the pro ducer may, under some circumstances, add taxes to other items in ccst of pro duction, is not an answer to my demon stration that the landlord cannot shift the single tax to his tenant. Even if the tenant or occupying owner could shift taxes to consumption it would not be a reason for upholding absentee landlordism or other form of land mon opoly. I admit that under the present monopoly system all but actual produo era can do thia Merchants and manu facturers charge up tariff and other taxes levied on their goods or machinery as part of the cost of production, these taxes being paid by consumers as part of the cost of the goods.
