YOL.YII. NO. 3. $1.00 A YEAR. TOPEKA, KANSAS, JANUARY 16, 1895. OFFICIAL STATE PAPER. LEGISLATIVE SCHEMES. NUMEROUS BILLS BEPOEE THE STATE LEGISLATURE. Some for Buncombe. Some in Good Faith. -The Senate Wrestles With Confirmations. If the publio should judge from the number of bills placed on the calenders of the two houses, it might conclude that the present legislature is a very indus trious one. In fact, it seems . that the old habit of introducing bills and then accusing the opposition of killing them off, has been growing, for there are bills pending in both branches that are no credit to any man or any party;,yet judging by the title they appear to be good and necessary measures. How ever, while there are many of these "buncombe" bills before the legislature not worthy of notice, there are many others which are worthy of serious con sideration. THE HOUSE. Two hours of the second day in the house were devoted to the hearing of the governor's message, It did not seem to be palat...

Tiie Advocate. JAN. 16, POWJtB OF WEALTH. Wende'l Phillips Said, "No Public Man Has ' lured to Defy It. Editor Advocate: I am sure you will agree with me that you can't do better than to give your readers the following excerpts from almost the last speech delivered by that great philan thropist Wendell Phillips in Music hall, Boston, on the 3tst of October," 1871. I sought it out with the design of mak ing some citations in support of a com munication for your paper; but find it ail so able and bo appropriate to my intent that it is difficult to select from it for my purpose, and therefore I give you elaborate extracts which I may refer to and build upon hereafter. And as this is an era of political edu cation and Wendell Phillips was an acknowledged teacher of ability and power, it is meet and proper that this generation should listen to his instruc tion. And as he was descended from one of the oldest and most wealthy and aristocratic families of lioston, and therefore knew all abo...

1833. A Retrospective View. Editob Advocate: In eccial, poli tical and religious reforms, aa in pro tracted wars, there are of necessity, perioda of apparent cessation, or breath ing spells, in which leading and con trollirg spirits cala ly survey the past, detect, if possible errors committed, and lay wise and permanent plans for fu ture operations. And frequently, final results depend much more largely upon the wisdom displayed in this work of planning than in the power, numerical force, or energy employed in the final execution of these plans. Evidently the People's party has now reached such breathing spell in the tre mendous struggle in which we are en gaged. The conference recently held in Si. L)uis gives evidence of this fact; and the fact that in the conference it was determined to stand firmly by the na tional platform adopted at Omaha two years ego, affords pleasing assurance that the members of said conference fully comprehend the importance of maintaining the grand princ...

Fifty-three girls employed in the psckicg department of the Gorle & Son oatmeal and cerial plant in ilan City went out on a strike on the 5 th of Jannary, in consequence of a reduction of pay from nine cents to eight cents per case. One of the girls, in an interview with a repre sentative of the Kansas City World, enys of the wages paid: The statement siren out by the factory psople that we girls receive on an average $1.80 a day for our work is wholly mislead ing. An expert girl oould, by workiog twelve hours, pat up in a diy about eeven tuen cases, which at 9 oents eaoh would make $1 63. If we worked every day this would make fair wages, but we did not.

7 35, Tiio Advooata NEW CHARITABLE BES0UBCZ3. The associated charities of Topeka recently adopted the plan submitted by Treasurer Wilder of the Santa Fe railroad to give the poor of this city work upon a rock pile at the rate of 50 cents for $1.50 worth of work in order to keep them from starving. Some of the charitable associations of Chicago seem to have hit npon another scheme of "charity" which we recommend to Mr. Wilder for adoption by his society. Those Chi cago people seem to have got ahead of oar Topeka humanitarians in the charity business, snd Mr. Wilder may profit by their suggestions. They propose to feed the poor workmgmen of Chioago upon bread made of three fourths saw-dust and one fourth rye flour. They say that by a chemical process the texture and tatte of the sw dust is taken away and that it really makes pret y good bread not such, it is ti ue, as would be chosen by Mr. Paltmau, Mr. Armour and such like gentry, or even by Mr. Wilder himself, but good enongh for a ...

1895, U Tiie JLcivooate. Dun's Prosperity Budget. Dun'e review of trade for week endinjf. January 5 was remarkable for the evi dance of general prosperity it did not contain. The most interesting items being the following: Failures for 1891 are fully reported this week, being 13,885 in the United States and 1856 in the Dominion of Canada. Liabilities in the Uaited States were $172922856 and in Canada $17, 616,215. Neither the decrease of over half in this oountry nor the increase of over 40 per cent in Canada is surprising, but the statement shows that most of the decrease in the United States was in manufacturing liabilities, while the en tire increase in Canada is in liabilities of trading concerns. A few states, including New York and Pennsylvania, show more failures than in 1893, and in a few Southern states the liabilities are larger, but in Central and Western states very much smaller. In eleven of the last thirty-eight years reported liabilities have been larger than in 1894....

In fact, the high standard of its work and effi ciency has become so well understood that older states, dissatisfied with abortive at tempts to do a like work with political ma chinery, are now asking to be shown the methods by which Kansas has been able to ac complish such far-reaching results along t...

TOie Advocate. JAN. 23, THfl SINGLE-TAX. in Able Champion Presents His Side of the Case. BY W H T WAKEFIELD. The bane of most reform movements is that they deal in vague and glitter ing generalities, instead of proposing direct and specific remedies for the evils of which they complain. Popu list editors and speakers generally in clude land along with transportation, and that mysterious and undefined something they call finance, as the three cardinal points of reform, but they have never to my knowledge asked for land monopoly. The Omaha platform starts on the land plane by quoting from Henry George the moral basis of the single-tax, and then asks things utterly inconsistent with it, in cl uding reclamation in some unspecified manner of alien and corporate lands, but nothing whatever calculated to change the present system of land monopoly. Your method of obviating land monopoly by taking direct posses sion of it for all the people is open to thl3 objection of vagueness and uncer ta...
