THE W RECORD OF GEO, T, MADE DUEINO THE GREAT A., T. & S. F. STRIKE IN 1878. Recollections of Days That Tried Men's Soles and the Sheriff's Shins. How the Gallant Kansas Militia, Under the Fearless (Telegraphic) Leadership of the Heroic Commander-in-Chief, Valiantly Slew a Conjrrega tional Preacher, And (With the Timely Assistance of a Sixty-miles-a-minute Bailroad Train) Escaped Without the Loss of a Man ! From Notes Taken, at a Safe Distance from the Spot, by the Great Military Chieftain Himself.

EDITORIAL IDIOCY. The Capital again exposes the density of its benighted ignorance concerning the history of paper money in this country in an editorial in the issue of Augnst 23, under the caption, "John Davis and the Land Loan Schema" Take the following as an example: It is true that Benjamin Franklin supported this ygtem. He also, and with equal force and earnestness, advocated the continental cur rency which was first Issued In 1775, began to de preciate la 1776, was worth 2 cents on the dollar ill 1780, and turned thousands of people, Riving origin to the expression, "not wurth a conti nental." Now what are the facts! Frank lin was in no way responsible for the issue of the "continenal currency." It was issued by authority of the con tinental congress as a war neces sity. There were two causes for its depreciation, besides the one common cause which is usually responsible for this result when paper money is issued with improper safeguards and in an improper manner the speculati...

TH2Z3 AID VOOATSa 7 sympathy for the common people among this class of soldiers, however, to render them entirely reliable in the event of such a conflict as is liable to arise ere this labor problem is solved. The great need of plutoo racy is a standing army patterned after the European model, whose "local sympathies and prejudices wil not undermine its usef alness." With such an army, organized labor and organized resistance to the encroach ments of capital, may be suppressed and the multitudes of the "common herd" may be taught to know their places in the social world and'in the various dapartments of productive industry. Tee Salina Republican criticises as meaningless a certain resolution of the republican convention of Saline county, and the Lawrence Record thinks the criticism a very proper one.

8 TUT! AJJVOOA.T2EL THOSE DEBT STATISTICS. Republican editors and politicians, who, if they are noted for any one thing, it is their ignorance of facts and figures, are making a great ado about a communication from 7. F. . Bightmire, relative to the debt of Kansas. It will be observed, how ever, that they introduce no testimony in behalf of their protest All they give us is wind. We have carefully gone over the figures in the state auditor's report and the other citations of Mr. Right- mire, and, with one exception, we can vouch for their correctness. Mr. Bightmire gave an estimate of the chattel mortgage indebtedness with out having the exact data to place that estimate beyond question. In this he mads a mistake; for, while his estimate is probably conservative, it is best at all times to limit our state ments to such facts as are susceptible of absolute demonstration. The chat tel mortgage debt, however, consti tutes a very small part of the incum brance upon Kansas property. It i...

I will state the reasons why I cannot accept your invitation and hope the same may be received by you m suffi cient; they are not intended to be personal and I hope you will receive them in the same kind spirit in which they are penned. They are reasons why I oppose a system which in my judgment is not truly American I have never been what might be termed partisan, for the reason I never could see anything saored in political doctrines when they did not impress the consciences of men as being right. I have always been opposed to the pro tection of one class of men at the expense of the great wealth-producing masses, and never supposed any party would be short sighted enough to attempt a thing...

IS THIS FUSION? The Abraham Lincoln Bepullican of the Third District Favors T. J. Hudson. R.H. Nichola, of Elk county, who waa nominated for congress by the Lincoln republicans of the Third district, has addressed the following letter to the com mittee, and published it in the Pittsburg World. He takes occasion to pay his re pecta to Mr. Humphrey and tell why he thinks Hudson ought to be elected: "Gentlemen: Having determined to object to the further use of my name as inch candidate, it Is due you that I give my reasons for this determination, as well as the motives which prompted me thus far to have co-operated with you In your movements. ."For several months I had been a close dbedrver of the workings of that motley group of Kansas statesmen, prominent among whom was Governor Humphrey, through whose statesmanship and lead ership our old-time republican majority of 80,000 bad been so reduced as to make Kansas doubtful as a republican state. k ul had read from widely-circulated news...

Tins AiDvooivna Profits of Capital and Waajos of Labor. By J. B. Detwiler, president Fourtli congres sional district alliance. Under the above caption, the editor of the Dally Capital attempts In a column article to reply to a communication I recently contributed to the Advocate. He eays that M It is untrue that capital Is getting any considerable undue propor tion of the wealth. We base this statement not on our Inner con sciousness, as seems to be the fashion of Mr. Detwiler, but upon statistics." Like most other workingmen, I do feel an " Inner consciousness " of the wrongs and oppression Buffered at the hand of monopolistic greed. It may be counted a weakness by high-bred aristocrats, but I am willing to confess an inclination to accept the lessons of bitter experience, rather than to rely upon the mystified column of cold figures which are fre quently cunningly arranged by the dic tates of avarice for the purpose of misleading its victims.

Another Campaign Sensation Coming From the Land of Yidette and Dyna mite lame Another Prematura Explo sion. On August 30, the Kansas City Jour nal published Ave columns of dime novel rot purporting to be a history of the Frazer-Gibeon murders In Chautauqua and Elk counties, and the Incidents lead ing to the arrest of Frank Elnzey and Jerry Hutton, which occurred August 29 at Sedan. The article was illustrated to show the blood curdling manner In which the murders were committed, but a faithful perusal of the story fails to show the reader what the illustrations were drawn from, unless it was the re- po rV.n agination. This fake brought a broad grin to the faces of many of the newspaper frater nity, who saw that the sensation that had t'ws if V-b up to sell to newspapers had now been turned to political uses. The fraud Is best exposed by the following report In the Ka...

There have long existed two opposing theories In respect to money. Viewi of the metallic school. One school advocates a continuance of - the generally prevailing system of money made by the two commodities, gold and silver. The especial merits claimed for this system are, that its workings are en tirely automatic, that the money value of the commodities upon which It Is based depends upon their useful lntrlnslo qual ities and Is measured by the average cost of their production, and that their volume depends upon the yield of the mines and not upon the caprice of legis latlon. They claim that the province of the government Is not to create money, but to coin It, and thereby give to it the best authentication of purity and weight Very many of this school claim that the investiture of such money with the func tion of legal tender la merely...
