-jJELEj advocate. 6 the purpose of the administration to carry out this policy, is it not fair to expect that every possibl eenconrage ment will be given to the establish- ment of such parity? And if this be fair to presume, why is it that when the price of silver rises in the market and approximates a little nearer to a parity with gold, that the secre tary of the treasury declines to buy Is not the hypocrisy of the pretense apparent from this fact alone? Can it be tiuly said in the face of this fact, that this is the reason why these treasury notes are redeemed in gold? Are there still fools who will believe these statements of the president with these facts before them? But I wish to say a word before I close this letter, concerning the in fluences brought to bear for the re peal of the Sherman law. I sat in the gallery of the United States sen ate during the reading of the presi dent's message and the proceedings immediately following it. The presi dent of the senate announced t...

6 MOBE FAKE GOBBESPONDENOE. The Washington Post of August 7 has another of those "specials from Topeka" which has given the Topeka correspondents of eastern papers a reputation for unreliability and folly almost equal to that of the Washington correspondent of the Kansas City Journal. This is a rather strong statement of the case, but the facts justify it. The special referred to relates to the court martial of Col. Hughes then in progress; and recites the proba bility that rivers of blood will flow in Kansas in consequence of it. We clip the following from this blood-curdling special for the amusement of Kansas readers: At several points in the state independent military companies have been organized and will be thoroughly drilled. Senator "Sol" Miller, who has been a resident of Kansas for thirty-five years, ad vises republicans to organize and arm com panies ready for business. lie says: Under the law. independent oompanies can be organized anywhere in the state. Tens of thousand...

TBCZJ ADVOCATE. 7 The robber tariff has been lost in the shuffle. "Another case of misplaced confi dence," says the western democrat as he recalls his dreams of last campaign. At last the people have become nearly evenly divided in two classes calamity howlers and calamity makers. 'Which wonld you rather be classed with? The Kansas City Journal suggests that while the burning subject of dis cussion last year was the tin in the workingman's dinner pail, this year it is a question of whether the pail shall contain any dinner. The name of Wm. HornWower is favorably mentioned by the president as a justice of the supreme court. One would think Cleveland was able to blow his own horn, without send ing to New York for assistance. Perhaps some of the "wise men of the east" can inform us why silver dollars commanded a premium of 1 per cent, over gold in New York within the past week. Don't give us any of your "parity" explanations, but something reasonable. We are sorry to see so many of our...

Virginians now in Washington are confident that the Populists will carry that state this fall. Virginia demo crats are surfeited with the over production of prosperity that has come upon the country under the new dispensation. The Populists of the house voted for Jerry Simpson for speaker. His nomination, of course, was an empty honor, but it served to maintain the party identity in the house. There will be more votes cast for a Populist speaker in the next congress. A visitor at the treasury depart ment to-day (August 10) learned the fact that cankers have sent to the de partment bonds of large denomina tions to be exchanged for small ones, and these small bonds were being made out and signed to supply the demand. What does this mean? It means that banks are preparing for extraordinary demands of depositors by securing bonds of denominations small e...

TECHS ADVOCATE. n 9 TAKING ANOTHER HITOH, The Topeka Olub Out of One Trouble and Into Another. Judge Johnson having released the petitioner in the habeas corpus case brought in the circuit court by the To- peka club to test the validity of a city ordinance made in accordance with the prohibitory law to prevent the sale, use and giving away of liquor, County Attor ney Safford has taken hold of the matter and began injunction proceedings against ' the club and owner of the building in which it is located. There was some difficulty in getting a court to hear the habeas corpus case, the judges seeming to dread the reapon sibility of deciding it. Finally an ar rangement was made by which Judge Johnson summoned Judge Hazen, of the district court, and Judge Humphrey, of the Junction City district, to sit with him and hear the case on Thursday. D. C. Tillotson appeared for the city and Messrs. Smith, Soper, Hagan and Dun lap for the plaintiff. Ed Bennett, a member of the club, had been conv...

THE ADVOCATE. 10 TO THE N. F. A. & I. TJ. We are rapidly approaching a crisis on the result of which the future of our re public depends. Try to disguise it as they mav, the financial crash which has bwo bart-ly averted for three successive years is upon ns. The failures thus far are simply the slight shocks preceding the earthquake, each shock growing a litfle louder and listing a little longer. The crash of 1893 will differ from pre ceding onf s ia two respects. First, in each preceding crisis the national ad ministiations made some effort towards restoring confidence. The whole effort of the present admir istration i9 directed towards intensifying the stringency. I know of no parallel in the annals of his tory. As an example of extreme heart less cruelty, it is recorded that "Nero fiddled when Rime burned." It is a mooted question whether Nero started the fire or encouraged the incendiaries in their awful work. He, however fiddled or amused himself and courte&ans, while h...

THE ADVOCATE. 11 WOBLD'S FAIR NOTES. Special Correspondence. On the archway that supports the quadriga at the middle of the peristyle is the inscription: "A few toiled and suffered, myriads enjoy the fruit." This is partiaily true, but grave reasons exist for believing that, of the present, the truth would be better expressed by the words of a top of reform : The student of the people can but count this saying true: That the many toil and struggle for the pleas ure of the few. When we enter Borne of the state budd ings, notably New York and Pennsyl vania, and tread the deep carpets, the costly rugs, see the luxurious hangings, curtains and draperies, and note the mosaic work, the marble floors, the gilded capitals and balconies, the richly frescoed walls, the antique furniture, and everything suggestive of opulence and ease, what wonder that the lavish and ostentatious display of wealth drives the mind to picture an opposite scene in the awful slums situated in the great cities of t...

Suffice it to say now that the change is made after consultation with Brother McDowell, vice president of the association, and with his approval, and after person ally investigating the facilities for accomodations of our membership elsewhere.

THIS ABVOOATB, 13 Frail A Swindle OFFICIAL NOTICE. As officers of the state of Kansas it becomes our duty to warn the people of a certain fraud and swindle which has sprung up within the last three or iour years to which the proper at tention of our state legislature has not yet been called. We refer to the many so-called bond investment companies, that is, companies that issue and sell their own bonds, collecting a monthly payment from each purchaser until the bond is said to mature, when the company promises to pay the face of the bond, which is usually $1,000. The tables for the payment of these bonds by the different companies are very similar, and we clip the following in structions and table from the literature of one of these companies that the reader may more thoroughly understand their plan or operating "TABLE FOll PAYMENT OF 110.NDS.

Still They Sleep. Editor Advocate: The last chance ia slipping away from the people. Still they Bl8p. Mr. Editor, if there was a plot on foot to steal one-half of every man's farm, one-half of his crop, his cattle and his sheep, and one-half of every man's wages and hope of making a livelihood for all mankind, It would seem but fair to expect that every sensible man would be interested in knowing who the thief is and being sure that he was arrested and punished. There is just Buoh a thief today, and he has called our representatives to meet in congress for the avowed purpose of steal ing one-half of all America They have been working this confidence game since 18G2, especially since 1870. Tr ey have almost stolen us blind now, but they propose to consummate the work during August and September. Whatever the hypocrisy of the mcvers in this work may claim, the fact remains that the purpose for which congress is called to gether is to get away with all silver coinage and make gold the ...

The ferment ing unrest of the unemployed in this city has at length burst bounds and on the east side to-day there was an explo plosion. A riotous mob possessed them selves of property which they had no money to hire and to which they had been forbidden entrance by the owners. A crowd of more than 5,000 men at tacked Walhalla hall, 48, 50 and 52 Orchard street, because admittance was denied them. They smashed the plate glass windows to atoms, forced in the door, which had been turned against them, and forcibly took possession of the place. Several persons were cut by the flying glass. All sorts of missiles were used, and finally the police reserves from the Eldridge station were ordered to the scene. When 10 o'clock came the street in front of the exchange wes black with people. The large hall down stairs was packed. Su were the stairs and every one of t...

2 THE ADVOCATE. PATERNALISM. The Only Preventative of Moneyed Oli garchy, To the student of economic questions the signs of the times are, to say the least, portentous. Never before in the history of the -country have so many diverse forces been at work. They are multifarious, and within each is con tained some mighty problem to be solved by the men who are charged with the country's destiny. The seeming security which for a time manifests itself is only the resting spell for some gigantic move ment of unrest. The fury of the tempest is often preceded by the ominous calm, which is more oppressive than the temp est, because filled with the elements of uncertainty, doubt and dismay. There was a time in the history of our development when individualism could cope with the issues raised from time to time, as they were single, and presented only simple questions easy of solution. But that period has passed, and with it much of that fresh young vigor that dis tinguished the men of that ti...

A-JECT3 ADVOCATE. in time to turn back the flags of navies, melt into broken detachments the most formidable battle lines, and strike the manacles from the hands of free men who were too loyal to be rebels and too proud to be slaves. The wonderful blending of races in our country necessarily brings new men, filled with new ideas, and Btrangely prone to resist tendencies in the way of privi leges. The residuum of power, resting in the eovereingty of this people, has been used to their advantage. Short-sighted statesman, so-called, have taken liber ties with a certain looseness, in the ma chinery of government, which they ex pected could be tightened up by creating privileges, and thereby placing conse quent checks upon the mas see. Here is where the harm hss been done, and the vainglorious spirit of our people has been fed upon appeals of liberty, while at the same moment they were being robbed of a priceless heritage by design ing men who were gaining charters and creating privilege...

THE ABVOOATE. 5 tion. This shows conclusively why government paper money was at a discount, and Senator Sherman said it was "purposely depreciated in order to make a market for the bonds," into which the 'greenbacks were convertable. Nor did greenbacks rise to par be cause "it was known there was gold in the treasury to redeem them on demand," as stated in the Journal's quotation. They rose to par when the secretary of the treasury issued his order to the custom houses to re ceive them for duties, thereby re moving the only cause that ever forced them below par; and they rose to par because of thisorder, and not because of any possibility of gold redemption. What keeps these notes at par to day? The government has the hard est Kind of work to keep $100,000,000 of gold in the treasury for the pur pose, ostensibly, of redeeming $34G, 080,000 of them. Is it the certainty that the whole $346,000,000 would be redeemed in gold on demand that causes them to remain at par, and even to comma...

6 THE ADVOCATE!. GOLD-BUG FALLACIES. Not until recently have any great number of men openly advocated the single gold standard of money for .the United States. Legislation, it is true, has been shaped to this end, but it has been done in such a way as in some measure to obscure the mo tive of the promoters of it. Now, however, the case is entirely different. The purpose is now openly and braz enly avowed of reducing the circulat ing medium of the country down to the narrow and absolutely insufficient basis' of the single gold standard. There is no longer any attempt to disguise the move of the legislation that is to be attempted in this con gress. We do not design to enter upon any discussion at this time of the conse quences of snch legislation. We are now experiencing some of those con sequences, and it is perfectly safe to infer that the American people un derstand the subject sufficiently well, that if they could be consulted in the matter they would repudiate the proposition by...

TBOEl ADVOCATE. 7 poiktebs ros congress. Editor Advocate: The metropolitan press has become a power in the land, and public and business men too often accept what it daily gives out as facte and news, while bat few know that one half of all that it proclaims as such is its own invention or is manufactured by re porters and item gatherers of easy vir tue, who are put to it for something sensational and startling, and therefore resort to their own wits to satisfy the public appetite and popular demand. Be sides, it is well known that, with the ex ception of the New York Sun, Chicago Times, and St. Louis Republic, there is not one prominent daily journal in the nation that is not owned and controlled by the gold trust. Even the Kansas City Times, which the people staked their faith upon, under its present man agement has been swallowed by this great devil fish, so that we are compelled to abandon it and turn to the Republic instead.

8 THE AIDVOOTHI. WASHINGTON EDITORIAL CORRESPONDENCE. Washington, August 18, 1893. In his speech in the house of rep resentatives on the 14th inst.

I want to hear.from the southern states, where we were only able to hold the people in line by pointing to this very plank in the platform and by pointing to Mr. Cleveland's letter of acceptance and by saying, "the demooratio party ia bound in honor and conscience to stand by it, that it has never betrayed the people before and will not do so in the fu ture." We have got to go home if this bill passes and say, "Gentlemen, you were cor rect when you said that the platform of the republican party was a sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal. You were oorreot when you Baid that the platform of the demo oratio party was a mere snare to catch votes. You were ...
