THE PRESIDENT ISSUES A OALL He Ignores the Wishes of the People and Pleads For the Gold Gamblers. Washington, July 3,-The fight against liver and in favor of the gold standard is again on and with mora earnestness than it has ever been before. Through a concerted arrangement between the Wall street and English "financiers" the council of India, on June 28, passed an act closing the mints of the country against the free coinage of silver. The Earl of Kimberly, lord president of the council, stated publicly that the inten tion of the government was to make gold the sole leal tender. The effect of this might have been ex pected. The price of silver bullion fell in three days to 68 cents an ounce, which waa less than 63 cents on the dollar. The pressure that had bean brought to bear on members of con...

2 THE! jUDVOOjSlTE. THE AQSIOULTUBAL IHTEEEST Following in the Wake of the Laborers and Toilers on the Bead to Earn. Editor Advocate: Notwithstanding the length of my two previous communi cations on the subject of labor and its subordination to capital, thus disqualify ing it for the exercise of an independent suffrage and rendering it unfit for sov ereignty, I did by no means exhaust the subject. Before proceeding to my next point, therefore, allow me to cite two very high authorities in the professional and business world, in justification of my position, as well as to show that I am no mere pessimist in my views and appre hensions, foreboding evil and unduly ex ercised as to the situation in the country. In a sermon of the great preacher, the Rev. De Witt Talmage, of May 18, 1890, he says: "The streets of American cities filled with processions of workmen carrying banners brings the subject of capital and labor to the front. The greatest war the world has ever seen is being waged...

x-SEI ADVOCATE. 3 "FAKMEB JOHN" Discourses on the Equality of the Repub lican and Democratic Parties, and Be garda Each One as a "Will-o'-the-Wisp of Lost and Vanquished Virtue." Enron Advocate: The republican and democratic parties are almost on an absolute equality to-day. Their financial policies are so near alike that the most keen and calculating observer cannot tell wherein they differ, and their pretended discord in tariff legislation ia all a faint gimcraek, tomfoolery, legerdemain. Like two old pendulums, they have'osci lated back and forth through the vale of mist and tears until the gathered rust and dirt has brought them at last to the same identical swing. Let two ships of different make and tonnage sail out across an unknown sea for forty years or more, and held in check by wind and tide and adverse waters; let there be a con" stant and uninterrupted exchange of passengers and freight, and they would, in the end, float side by side, impelled by a common enemy, and movi...

If some of the statesmen in Wash ington could exchange their intense patriotism for about an ounce of good horse sense there would still be some hope for the country. The Rev. A. S. Embree suggests that it would be eminently proper for the late William Higgins to stay dead. The suggestion is very com mendable. Will the corpse take no tice! "Redeem Kansas," the old familiar song of the shyster politicians, is not heard so often lately. People are beginning to realize that those who sang it loudest were the state's wor...

THE ABVOOATB, 5 NORTH AND SOUTH. The Paternalistic Railroad Proposition Meets with Favor at Lincoln. The proceedings of the north and south railroad meeting held at the capi tal of Nebraska on June 28 nd 29 did not call forth a great amount of favor able comment from the Napoleons of finance who operate the railroads and other great enterprises of the country. The reasons for this are obvious: There were too many Populists in the conven tion; the eoheme offered no prospect for the Napoleons to get in their work of wrecking, watering stock and bleeding the people; and above all, it was a pa ternalistic scheme such as should, in their minds, never be tolerated in this country. Therefore what little the rail road press said about it was to ridicule and belittle it as much as possible. In spite of all this, however, the delegates who assembled there proceeded to busi ness just as if they had the solid support of the states they represented, and when they adjourned it was with the convic...

6 THE ADVOCATE. 13 IT A SIGN OF AWAKENIUG 00N BOmOE? The Emporia Republican, of Jane 28, has a column editorial upon the "money question" which, taken by itself, would indicate a slight awaken ing of conscience. Populists have insisted since their first advent upon the political stage, that the financial question is the chief issue before the American people to-day, and have made it the first plank in their plat form. The two old political twins, however, have insisted that the tariff was the only thing needful to be regulated, and have filled the eyes of the people with tariff dust until they could see nothing else. "Tariff re form" (?) won in November, but the tariff reformers have been so tangled up with the finance question that they have not thought of the tariff since the election. Meanwhile the finan cial policy established by the repub lican party and adopted by its demo cratic successor has brought the country to tha verge of a precipice, from which all parties and all peop...

THE ADVOCATE. 7 THE "HNAIOIEBS" The stopping of silver coinage in India has called oat an expression of opinion by the "financiers" that would be amnsing were it not tragic in its effect through its influence upon those who control the affairs of the nation. Henry W. Cannon, president of the Chase National bank, and one of the delegates to the late interna tional monetary conference, says: The importance of the action of the gov. eminent of India in dropping the coinage of silver cannot be overestimated at this time. It was the only country, with the ex ception of Mexioo, in the whole world, the mints of whioh were open to coinage of sil ver without limitation. Therefore, at the present time, the only countries in the world whioh are continuing to produce sil ver legal tender money are the United States and Mexico, and it must be clear, even to a casual observer, that it is impossi ble for the United States safely to continue the coinage of silver or the issuance of money against bu...

8 THIS ADVOCATE. BOBBING THE "PLTJTOOBATS." Congressman Davis "Writes an Open Letter to tne New York "Times." The Populist goternor of Kansas baa made a curious record since he took office a few months ago, but it is not probable that in exercising his power to pardon oontiota or to commute their sentences he will go beyond the extraordinary aotion of his re publican predeoeesor, Gov. Humphreys, in the case of the two murderers, Winner and iloNutt. The orime committed by these wretoheswas so atrocious that the press of the entire oountry commented upon it at the time. An insurance policy for $5,000 having been obtained on the life of MoNutt, the two men rented a cheap frame building in the frontier town of Wichita and induoed a journeyman painter named Seabor, then residing in Topeka, to join them. The night after his arrival, Winner and MoNutt set fire to the house. In the ruins was found the body of a man, charred beyond recognition. This was the body of Seabor, their viotim, but ...

THE! ADVOCATE. 9 THE WOBLffS FAIR. What Kansas baa Contributed to the Big Show Lesions in Politics. Special Corresixmlenct. Chicago, June 11. The people of -wealth occasionally endow hospitals, build churches, establish libraries and found schools and colleges with the products of other's labor; but all will admit that, dependent for support upon gifts of the rich alone, all of these in stitutions would have a precarious ex istence. Their main support comes from the innumerable mites of the masses. Upon these mites rely all hos pitals, churches, colleges and schools that are maintained by voluntary con tributions. And this, too, notwithstand ing the noise with which the gifts, be quests and legaoies of drones are bruited abroad, and the silence with which the toilers little by little make up far greater aggregations. A tendency is, nowadays, very apparent to filch from the pockets of the worker the dimes and quarters that he can not well spare, to aid and support some worthy enterpr...

In this country, if congress had the nerve to pass such an act, the very dogs in the streets would bark "unconstitutional" at the law-makers; the newspapers would throw up their hands in holy horror; and the courts one after another, from lowest to highest, would deolare that the chaps who were obstructing the high ways were doing so under an implied contract with...

ADVOCATE. 11 THE GOLDEJ OALF. The gold gamblers are evidently will iug to crush out the agricultural and business interests of the western states in their insane desire to demonetize sil ver and reduce the circulating medium of the country to gold alone. The real intent is to build up the few at the ex pense of the many. It ia the same old contest of all the ages and it will endure so long as time shall last unless settled in behalf of the majority. TheAmeri can people will soon make it known that manhood alone is the standard of Amer ican oitizenship. The strungest realty to the rights of man is the highest loy alty to the American flag. Any doctrine in opposition to this is contrary to the spirit and genius of American citizen ship. The man who owns a hundred thou sand head of cattle is too apt to think that the laws governing live stock and the sale of beef should be made by the owners of the large herds, and that the hundred thousand consumers who buy his beef, or the thousand f...

12 TIx"EJ ADVOCATE. AUAROHISM AS ANAEOHISTS TO DERSTAND IT. The Pardon of Pielden, Schwab and Ueebe By 0. 0. Clemens. . Editor Advocate: For daring to be true to our convictions, and because in the hour of their triumphant Bupremacy we dared accuse aa murderers certain decorous, mammon-inspired Chicago as sassins, some of us in Kansas have for seven years endured all the villiflca tions of which malicious ignorance and hired libel are capable. We dared charge that the accusation upon which 1 arsons and others were sent to the scaffold was a sheer false pretense, meant to cover a deeper a devilish design; that those men were not hanged for murder, but to tret them out of the way as leaden of the workingmen, and "stamp out" doctrines which threatened the perpetuity of plutocracy's rule. While innocent men were in prison for being friends of the Door, it had been pusillanimous for us to complain of mere libel; but at last those men are free and we may speak. The other day, Gov. Altgeld...

13 protests of martyred patriotism, or the loud cries of crushed and starving labor. The law has been always wrong. Government began in tyranny and force, began in the feudalism of the soldier and bigotry of the priest; and the ideas of justice and humanity hate been fighting their way, like a thunder storm, against the organized selfishness of human nature." ("Woman's Rights.") Anarchism has yet higher eaction. Gibbon tells us the early Christians were anarchists. In the famous fifteenth chapter of hia "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire," he says: "The Christians were not less averse to the business than to the pleasures of the world. The defense of our persons and property they knew not how to reoonoile with the pa tient doctrine which enjoined an unlimited forgiveneeaof pastiu juries, and commanded them to invite the repetition of fresh in sults. Their simplicity was offended by the use of oaths, by the pomp of magistracy, and by the aotive contention of publio life; nor oould...

14 THEE ADVOCATE. What the "Eocky Mountain Hews" Thinks of England's Latest Aot in the Great Conspiracy. The closing of the mints of India to eilver for free coinage on private account, Mhich has been precipitated by the British government as a means of check ing the bi-metallio movement, will prob ably shorten the time that separates us from the full restoration of silver to its monetary rights. Its immediate effect will be to further enhance gold by in creasing the demand for it This will be to the additional advantage of those who deal in money and at the expense of producers and those who are involved in debt As gold goes up, the products of labor and ultimately the wages paid to labor must inevitably go down. Even before the action of the India council the appreciation of gold had leveled general pdes to a mark lower ' than had been scored for a century. Viewing the matter in a comprehen sive sense, the blow England gave silver yesterday is an injury to all olasses of people in...

'T' I I i VOL. V. NO. 28. 1 91.00 A TEAR. ! SILVERITES CONFIDENT. The Colorado Senator Says They Are Not Demoralized. Chicago, July 8: "The silver men are not demoralized, and will be ready to meet Mr. Cleveland and his friends on the battling ground in a special session." said Senator Henry M. Teller, of Colo rado, last evening. "Despite the great hue and cry, we find ourselves in the front unbroken. Of course I refer more to the senate. We have had a very good working majority for silver for some years, and despite the changes that have taken place we will still have a majority. The Sherman repeal bill will not pass tinlesa it is replaced by another law that will maintain the double standard in this coun try. I know Mr. Cleveland is mak ing great efforts to bring about the repeal of the Sherman act, and is using the lever of patronage to move some of the silver men of his party." Speaking of the probable effect in Colorado should silver be de monetized, the senator said that state...

(2) I desire to assure you that you are very likely in error when you ascribe your troubles to local causes or to personal mismanagement And (3) I desire by means of this further dis cussion to put other men on their guard, bo they may not incur distresses like those which have overtaken you. And especially do I desire that those thou sands of people whom you have misled to their ruin, by your official reports, may be benefited. Many thousands of bankruptcies have occurred in this country during the last twenty years, mostly from one and the same general cause. And from that sa...

'ifTE ADVOCATE. 3 tion and the sums looked op in the tills of bankers, discounters and merchants." After getting through with the false and absurd claim as to the gold in circu lation, the historian says: "The statement as to silver ooin is equally fallacious the probability being that not more than half of that amount ($8,000,000) was ever current at one and the same period. This unfortunate attempt at eco nomical calculation on the part of the min iater of oourse became the source of some amusement to those who had any knowl edge of such matters. Elsewhere it had no effect of any kind; nor did the assertion of overproduction, as an exouse for the eon tinuous fall of prioes universally over the kingdom, fare much better." Now, my dear sir, cannot you see your self in that mirror ? Did you not refuse to include $820,000,000 of 7-30 notes in the circulation of the sixties in order to reduce the tables of that date ? And, in your tables of 1892, did you not include many millions of go...
