THE ADVOCATE. 5 to a government as to a bank the confi dence in the ability and intention to redeem the promise must exist in the one oase as in the other. This is the reason that the fund of $100,000,000 in gold has been always kept in the treasury vaults sinoe the resumption of speoie payments, and why the mere suggestion of its impairment, ac companied by a doubt of the purpose to pay gold on demand, has precipitated this finan cial crisis upon us. Here is the cause of the present financial crisis as these conspirators would like to have the people under stand it: Danger of impairment of the 1100,000,000 gold reserve, and doubt of the purpose to redeem our paper currency in gold on demand. The money famine which all business men and the great army of producers recognizes as the cause of the general shipwreck of our industries has noth ing to do with it, according to these financiers. Mr. Flannigan continues: Our financial legislation of late years has been most unwise and unfortu...

6 THE! ADVOCATE. THE 80H00L BOOK QUESTION. Oar readers are already aware that we feel much interest in this ques tion, especially in the proposition to fnrnish free books to pupils; which, in our judgment, is the most impor tant feature of it; and that it has been our custom to say something con cerning it each year just prior to the annual school meetings. Last year we hoped that the legislature would take some action that would settle the question, at least for the time being, and hence we advised that nothing be done until after it should be known what the legislature would do. Owing to the legislative muddle that existed, very little was done that the masses of the people desired, and this question, with others, remains as before the legislature met. Under these circumstances what is best to be done this year? In determining this question we are satisfied that those who have to deal with it will appreciate any candid discussion of it that will better enable them to un derstand i...

'I' THE ADVOCATE. - several publishing honses will move heaven and earth to get the county board to adopt a series not now in use, in order to sell a big bill of books and pnt the people to the nnneces sary expense involved in the change. Unless the books in use are unsatis factory, there is no good reason for incurring this expense. We shall pursue this subject fur ther next week, as we are satisfied its discussion will not be unprofitable at this time. We earnestly recommend the careful consideration by the peo ple of the thoughts here presented, and a thorough discussion among themselves of such action by the sev eral districts and counties of the state as will best comport with every interest involved. GOOD FOB CONGRESSMAN BKODEE 101. The Hon. Case Broderick, of the First district, seems to be sound on the silver question. His declarations are in happy contrast with those of Mr. Curtis of this district, and they come much nearer representing the sentiment of the people of Kansas...

THE ADVOCATE. 0 KANSAS OBOPS Secretary Mohler,of the state board of agriculture, issued the following report July 7: The agricultural conditions, in a gen eral way, aa reports from correspondents of this board show, have been improved considerably throughout the state dur ing the month of June. In the central and western sections of the state this improvement came, however, only in the last week of the month. Abundant rains have fallen in the central and many of the western counties of the state. These rains have greatly improved the condi tion of corn, potatoes, and all kinds of forage crops as well as pastures. Winter wheat From the estimate, re ported by correspondents, of the area of wheat which will be harvested, the yield per acre, quality, etc., we find no im provement in the probable final outcome of the wheat crop in Kansas over that reported one month ago. In nearly all the eastern, and especially in southeast ern counties, where the wheat prospects have been best, the whe...

THE ADVOCATE. 10 THE GAME OP INSUEAUOE. Editor Advocate: As a consistent believer in the Populist principle, "Equal rights to all and special privileges to none," I must protest against the fla grant partiality displayed inthe attitude of the national and all our state govern ments toward the gambling business. Why is it that the lotteries, policy shops, pool rooms, and similar institutions are no violently attacked and religiously per secuted by legislatures and congresses, by churchmen and laymen, by all the good people of the nation, while at the same time a form of gambling more uni versal in its operation, more extensive in its volume of business, and more baneful in ts effects upon the national monetary and industrial systems, and upon the morals of the people than all other forms combined, is not only tolerated, but is fostered by government, patronized by all classes of citizens, and carried on by the leading men of the business and social world? Why ia it that our leaders i...

11 oolobies or England. ' ( From the Atchison Champion, July 2. ) In commenting on the silver matter in India, the Inter-Ocean says: In his eermon of last Sunday Professor Swing had a fling at the silver dollar, which he sneeringly called the 67-cent dollar. The very next day he could have "mended his pleadings" and called it a 60-cent dollar. Perhaps by the time he resumes business at the old stand in September it will be a 50-cent dollar. But it does not follow, as he and so many other doctrinaires assumed, that the purchasing power of the silver dollar is any lees than the purchasing power of a gold dollar. The mint stamp of the gov ernment bridges over the gap. We have three kinds of dollars; one worth 100 cents, one 60, and one nothing at all, but the no-cent dollar will buy just as much and go just as far in debt paving as the 100-cent dollar. This is a fixed fact in the case and specially important to bear in mind in connection with the Indian change of base. The simple truth...

The law, therefore, generally implloa a promise on his part to pay such a remunera tion as the benefit conferred upon him is rea sonably worth, less any damage that may navo been sustained by reason of the partial non fulfillment of the contract. , Where it is alleged that a plaintiff haa suf fered l-'OO damage by being kept out for one year of the use of a house being constructed by a contractor, on account of its non-completion according to the contract .between the parties, no actual damage can bo allowed, in the absence of proof of...

THE ADVOCATE. 14 York State Populists. The state central committee of the People's party met in Oneida, N.

VOL. V. NO. 29. $1.00 A YEAR. FIMNOIEES PUZZLED. The Treasury Department Pretending to Look After the Crops. New York, July 17. There is a good deal of speculation here as to why the government ia paying olearing house balances in gold, when the banks want small notes, and when it is believed the government is trying to build up its gold reserve. Reliable information from i government source has it that the gov eminent is reserving currency in great quantities to meet the extraordinary de mands which may be made upon it when the crops begin to move. There is doubt less a great amount of currency locked up somewhere, either in the hands of in dividuals or in the country banks. If it is in the hands of the bank?, the govern ment will not be called upon for a very great quantity when the crops move; bat it it is in the hands of individuals, the demand upon the government will be extraordinary. When the report of the national banks recently called for are summarized, the comptroller of ...

On June 2G Governor Altgeld, of Illi nois, granted pardon to the remaining three "anarchists" who were imprisoned at Joliet under sentence of murder. Accompanyirg his pardon the governor made the following statement. The italics are as used by him: "On the night of May 4, 18.TG. a public meet ing was held on Haymarket square In Chicago, There wero from 800 to 1,100 people present, nearly all being laboring men. There had been trouble, growing out of an effort to intro duce the eight-hour day, resulting In some collisions with the police, in one of which sev eral laboring peoplo wero killed, and thismeet ingwas called as a protest against alleged polico brutality. "The meeting was orderly and was attended by the mayor, who remained until the crowd began to disperse and then went away.

"Some more questions were asked, and Mr. Gould answered: "Well, I believe I have gone just as far as I can in reply to that question.' Q. This question, naked and simple of itself, is, do you believe that you can fairly and im partially render a verdict in the case in ac cordance with the law and evidence? A. I believe I could. "Having finally badgered the juror into giv ing this last answer, the court desisted. The defendants' counsel asked : Do you believe that you can do so uninflu enced by any prejudice or opinion which you now have? A. You bring it at a point that I object to, and I do not feel competent to answer. "Thereupon the juror was challenged a sec ond time for cause, and the challenge was overruled. JAMES II...

THE AlDVOOjTm 6 OUR PROSPERITY COLUMN. We have despaired of keeping pace with the business and commercial failures as we started out to do some weeks ago. The record has become bo voluminous as to require more space than we can give it. Among the heavy failures of the past week are two Kansas City banks with liabilities of about $1,000,000 each. One of these was a savings bank where the scanty savings of the laboring men and women were de posited, and the misery and hardship that will result to these people can only be imagined. It will never be known to the public This bank con tinued to receive deposits up to the day of its failure, knowing all the time that it would close its doors within a few days. It also provided, from these deposits, for the settle ment of its balances with eastern bankers as preferred creditors. Dun's weekly review of July 14, among other things, says: There ia a somewhat better tone in busi ness, because the money markets are a lit tle lees stringent, but ...

0 THE ADVOCATE. THE E0H00L BOOX QUESTJ02L (C05TWTJID.) We last week presented some thoughts upon this question which we wish to supplement with some farther considerations that may be usef ol in determining the best action to be taken by the several counties of the state this year. Some of the counties which adopted books in 1885, 188G and 1887 have since had rather racy times with their book changes. We will cite one instance, that of Itiley county, which first adopted uniformity in 1885. This adoption expired in. 1890, but the people did not elect a new county text book board until 1891, when a new adoption was made; but, before the adopted books were introduced into the schools the competing pub lishers involved the county supenn- ent, as chairman of the board, in litigation by injunction and manda mus suits, all of which had a very disturbing effect upon the welfare of the schools. The litigation dragged on for almost a year, and then a third adoption was made, and this time an ...

THE ADVOCATE. HOT GUILTY! (Continued from page S.) de.red him competent. Such a view, if it was enter tained, was a total misconception of the law. It requires no profound knowledge of human nature to know that with ordinary men opin ions and prejudices are not amenable to the power of the will, however honest the intention of the party may be to put them aside. They are likely to remain in the minds of the juror in spite of all his efforts to get rid of them, warping and giving direction to his judgment, coloring the facts as they are developed by the evidence and exerting an influence, more or less potent, though it be unconsciously to the juror himself, on the final result of his delib erations. To compel a person accused of a crime to be tried by a juror who has prejudiced his case is not to aire him a fair trial. Nor should a de fendant be compelled to rely, as his security for the Impartiality of the jurors by whom he is to be tried, upon the restraining and con trolling influ...

8 THE iJDVOOAVm THAT 13 WHAT IT WAS INTENDED TO DO. A religious war was nearly precipitated in Kansas City by the crusade of Rot. J. G. White against the Catholics. There can al ways be found a class of religious zealots who see danger in erery church institution but their own. Free Press. This crusade of religious bigots is being pushed for the sole purpose of precipitating a religious war in order to divert attention from economic questions in politics. The t-a-r-i-f-f is played out as a theme for sham battles, and something new has to be found to take its place. A religious war would have an advantage over the tariff because it would last the year round instead of being limited to political campaigns, and would ap peal to muoh stronger passions arid prejudices. If it cnuld only be man aged to get this religious war into politics in some way, so as to divide the people at the polls on sectarian lines, what a great thing it would be. It would afford the most excellent possible mean...
