In response to 1he proclamation issued by President Cleveland on Jane 30, the congress of tne United States met in extra session at noon to-day. The special exigencies whioh demand congressional action at this time are of a graver nature than the national legisla ture has been called upon to grapple with for many years, and the outcome is awaited with interest the world over. It was precisely noon when the house and Benate were called to order in their respective chambers, the only business to be transacted being the appointment of the usual committees, among them being that upon which devolves the duty of notifying the president that congress is in session and prepared to receive any communication which he may see fit to make regarding the course to be followed in the present exigency. After these measures h...

2 THE ADVOCATE. WILL TEXAS CO-OPEEATE? This May be the Beginning of a Govern ment Bailroad System. On August 1, Gov. Lewellintf ad dressed a letter to Gov. Hogg of Texas, of which the following is a copy: My Dear Sir I have become much interested in a possible outlet for our ptoducts via the gulf, as there is no doubt that a large amount of money may be thus saved to the western states every year. In the first place, this route to the waterways is shorter than over land to the Atlantic coast cities. In shipping via the latter there are a num ber of middle men to be compensated for imaginary assistance in forwarding the produce of the west; while in ship ping by Galveston or any other gulf port there need be at must only one middle man, and he located on the const. I have had a conference with several of the representatives of the Danish gov ernment and believe the people of Nor way, Denmark, Sweden, and possibly France and many ether European na tions, would be much benefited by so ...

The most unsentimental utilitarian cannot ob ject to the entomological specimens by means of whioh are taught the differences between noxious and useful insects,with a view of preserving the latter and de stroying the former.

L-JE3nE ADVOOjT'JES. 5 THE SILVES CONVENTION. Editorial Correspondence. Chicago, August 5. The great silver convention called by Gen. Warner, presi dent of the American Bi metallic League, to meet in this city on August 1, has passed into history. Forty-two Btates and territories were represented by 810 accredited delegates, of all political parties and all shades of political opin ion; yet, notwithstanding other differ ences, the convention was a unit upon the question that the demonetization of silver in 1873 4 was a crime consum mated by fraud, fraught with conse quences of unparalleled evil to the h"man race, and that it should be re monetized at the old ratio of 1G to 1. Mayor Harrison welcomed the conven tion to the city in a speech that would, under ordinary circumstances, be re garded as an able argument in favor of free coinage. Like the foxy politician that he is, however, he left a little hole to crawl out of in case circumstances should hereafter render it expedient for ...

6 THE DVOaA.TH3. PABTLY 01. Speechless are the defamers of the people's movement in Kansas over the remarkable fact that now within less than three years after the date of our first signal victory at the polls: now when the rest of the country is writhing in the toils of the money power, literally fulfilling the pre dictions of the Alliance speakers of three years ago, and verifying those of the People's party campaigners of last year. Speechless are the polit cal demagogues at the contrast which this state presents under "the first People's party goverment on earth," to the financial distress now endured in states where it has been thought better to meekly endure the burden of the money tyrant's yoke than to brook his displeasure by dar ing to vote for the interests of .home and familA" rather than the demands of Shylock. Just how our declaration cf inde pendence has relieved us from the oppression which others suffer would be tedious to trace. 13ut our twice recorded declaration o...

THE ADVOCATE. 7 STATE SILVEB OERTIFIOATES. Wtat Mother Necessity Has Suggested to the People of Colorado. Attorney General Engley, of Colorado, in answer to recent inquiries, has given as his opinion that the state may enact laws authorizing the building of Btate sil ver depositories, and the issuance of bul lion certificates to be used for the payment of taxes, etc. The proposition has already grown quite popular there in spite of its state's rights features. The Denver Mining Journal enlarges upon it as follows: "Prompt and decisive action on the part of the business men of Denver will solve the silver problem. Let us reason together just a little. "The legal tender circulation of the country is represented by greenbacks and gold. National bank notes are not a legal tender for any purpose; yet the great volume of currency in circulation consists of national bank notes. This observation is made only for the purpose of illustration, as will be seen farther on. "There is still anothe...

TBGB ADVOCATE. failures for the two weeks ending July 29 numbers 1,016. The failures in the United States for the first six months of this year aggregate in lia bilities $170,860,222. And though our failures, when we take into con sideration population and wealth, do not begin to equal those of Australia for the like period, they reveal the result of permitting such men as John Sherman and Grover Cleveland, backed by England, to dictate our financial policy. Australia has been following England's financial policy as has our double-headed gold party, and both peoples are prostrated as a result, while the gold barons and the usurers are becoming immensely rich How much longer will the people bear these shameful outrages? According to Bradstreet's report for the two weeks ending July 29, the total amount of wheat exported from our ports and Montreal was 9,440,000 bushels.

This shows the average wages paid to be but $5.00 per week, and even the losing of this beggarly pittance will cauee all the horrors of famine to the laborers. Ah, well. This is what they have voted for. This is the result of the fealty they have paid to party while remaining ignorant of .the social forces that were crushing them. They have thrown up their hats at the sound of the name of some great political thief and robber, and condemned students and thinkers who saw the present con ditions coming. They have abused the men who tried to show them the advan tages of the government, that is them selves, owning all the means of produc tion and operating the plants...

THE ADVOCATE. 11 No Mora Silver Certificates. Washington, August 3. No more silver certificates will be issued by the treasury for the present, for the limit prescribed by law has been reached that is, to-day as many silver certificates are now outstanding as there are stand ard silver dollars coined and in the treasury to redeem them. Under the Bland act 389,936,376 standard silver dol lars have been coined. The reduction in the number of standard silver dollars in the treasury has been brought about by the large demand recently for silver dol lars from the south to move the crops in Georgia and tha Carolinas, and to pay off hands at work on the cotton crop. United States Treasurer Morgan, in a circular says: "Silver dollars con be furnished only for certificates deposited for exchange or in return for those re ceived for redemption. Halves, quarters and dimes can be furnished in the place of standard dollars in the sums of $200 or more, free of charge for expressage or by register...

12 THE OLD SHIP DEMOOBAOY. To Our MfinberK of Conyrest: Gentlemen A word or two before enteric (j upon the general subject of discu-uaou. which is, you will remember, Whht kicd of paper money are we to have in this country hereafter? The ways of Providence are indeed mysterious and past finding out when the old ship of democracy is found anchored at the foot of Wall street, a most unnatural and illogical port for such a craft to be caught in, and where she was never known before. And is it for the purpose of taking on or discharging a cargo, or both ? If the former, I would like to get a look at her "bill of lading," to see how it would fquare with a bill of the olden time when she was run in the interest of man as man, without regard to his fortune or bis surroundings, and under those famouH captainr, Jefierson and Jackson. It would be a curious docu ment, I imagine. If the latter, what is tbe cargo to be discharged all old faehioned democratic principles and the democratic party o...

THE ADVOOAfrE. 13 0HI0AG0 SILVEB PLATFORM. (Continued from page 'J.) bankers and money dealer? are worthy and valuable men in their places the republic can more safely repose on the great mass of its peaceful toilers and producers; and that this "business man's age" is rapidly exterminating the buai neea men of this country. The time has come when the politics of the nation should revert as far as possible to the conditions out of which the republic arose. 6. We suggest for consideration that the refusal of the opponents of bi metallism to provide any substitute for the present law or to elaborate any plan for the future, indicates either an ignor ance of our financial needs or an unwill ingness to take the publio into their confidence; and we denounce the at tempt to unconditionally repeal the Sherman law as an attempt to secure gold mono-metalhsm in a flagrant via lation of the last national platform of all political parties.

THE ADVOCATE. n More "International" Humbug. Here is another sample circular show ing the deep sense of patriotism which prevails among the bankers of New York, The H. B. Claflin Co. is a dry goods house whose president is closely connected with Wall street. The circu lar ia sent to their customers, the retail merchants, and several copies of it have reached the Advocate: New York, July 17,1893. Dear Sib: New York has pss3ed through the acute stags of one of the mo3t intense financial strains of its his tory, and the consequent depression of business which this citv is now experi encing will doubtless spread over the entire country if confidence in the future be not speedily restored. Whatever may be the correct state ment of the relation of the silver pur chases of the government to the present trouble, it is evident that the great ma jority of all the business men of this country now believe that the silver pur chasing clause of the Sherman act is the most important cause of the c...

THE GIAUT ADVOCATES OP SILVEE Are Forcing the Pight to the Exclusion of Other Qnestions-Bland's Warning. - Washington, August 15. The all-absorbing topic of discussion in both houses of congress is the money ques tion. No matter what is before the body temporarily, the mind of the average member is on this question, and he can not put it away. The main battle ground is in the house, where the two weeks' debate was begun last week. The republicans are showing a reticent dis position, waiting to see the outcome of . the fight among the democrats, who are seriously divided. The sensations of the week were'caused by the change of policy in the Washing ton Poet and the New York Recorder, both republican papers. The former admits that the repealers are already de feated, while the latter comes out fair and equare in favor of free coinage. Washington, August 11. "We do not intend that any political ...

Mayor Harrison, in his address of wel come, said : I welcome you warmly because I believe you have the good of the country at heart. Some of you may be rather wild.
