VOI V. HO. 38. 1 $1.00 A YBAB. f HOMELESS HUMANITY Taking Possession of the Largest Be maining Body of Public Land. In all the history of the world there is no record of euch a frantic rush, for wild land aa that which occurred last Satur day. Nor is it probable that a thins: of such magnitude will occur again. It was an avalanche of humanity sweeping down like locusts and covering neatly 5,000,000 acres of land within a few hours. It was a race between countless thousands of eager men and women, for homea on the broad prairie. To many of them it ' was a struggle for existence. It was the strong against the weak, the swift against the feeble, in a race whose goal was to be success tojthe few and privation and disappointment to the many. This was the opening of the Chero kee strip lands to homestead settlement. In arranging for this event the In dian department laid itself open to the charge of having committed the most in excusable blunders and encouraged the rankest frauds that hav...

2 THE iUD"VOOTH3. T O0MPLIMEIT3 TO BE2TAT0B V0BHEE3 Becretary Woodbury's Answer to the Een ators Allegations as to the State Bank Taper. editor Advocate: In our last, W8 gave some remarkable examples of the capacity of the National bank scheme, when worked by the shrewd, cunning and unscrupulous operators, as it has been in a variety of cases, too many to enumerate and in ways too various to undertake to elucidate, and we have further well authenticated evidence of the plethoric dividends and profits accruing from this government pampered vocation, if it can be so-called. For we had not finished our exposition of the enormous cost of the system of production and the burden it entails upon the bottom strata of bo ciety, so to speak since those upon whom the burden falls in the first in stance, can shift it to the next lower on the ladder, and so on down until it rests on the shoulders of the farmer and toiler who are at the bottom of all things, and the recipients of the ever changin...

3 and, therefore, we shall find no remedy or relief by turning from one to the other in this matter. Let's be rid of the whole tribe, uproot the whole principle and return to the simple, unsophisti cated program laid down by Lincoln in the issue of the greenback and the es tablishment of a national currency in fact as well as in theory, in principle as well as in profession. In Jefferson's time it was a litigated question whether the circulation of bank paper was a good or an evil, but it ought to be no longer so. "In the opinion of England and of English writers," he says, "it is a good. In that of all other nations it is an evil; and excepting England and her copyist, the United States, there is not a nation existing, I believe, which tolerates a bank paper circulation. The experi ment is going on, however, desperately in England, pretty boldly with ua, and in the end we shall see which opinion experience approves. For I believe it to be one of those cases where mercan tile clamor...

THE .AJDVOOjfiLTEL 5 rnusTOH's lettee. Congressman Funston has written a letter to Mr. A. F. Allen, of Vine land, Kansas, in response to resolu tions sent him by some of his con stituenta respecting his vote upon the silver question. In this letter, dated September 16, he says: Tour favor of the 22ad conveying to me resolutions of my constituents at a pionioia your vicinity, did not reach me until this evening too late aa you will see to aid me in forming my conclusions in the matter of my vote on the silver question. I am happy however, to inform you that I. voted five times in succession for the free ooinage of silver. But I am sorry to inform you and the good people of your vicinity that the populist members of the house deeerted us after the first vote like bad soldiers who run at the first fire. The faot is after seeing what I have seen here, I am convinced that the populists of the house did not desire the free ooinage or silver, and I am sure they are as great enemies of free...

6 OUK HOETGAGE HTOEBTEDISESS. The prosperity editors, especially of the Topeka Capital, have been telling their readers how rapidly mortgages have been paid off since the results of the census investigation of 1890 were made pnblic. Before that time the mortgage indebtedness of Kansas was placed below $50,000, 000, and nothing conld induce the Capital to concede it to be possible that it would reach that immense sum. After the figures of the census bureau were published, and the stu pendous debt could no longer be dis puted, another line of tactics became necessary. The amount of the debt was acknowledged, and it was said to be not much of a debt after all; and, besides, it was being so rapidly paid that ita payment demonstrated how lightly it rested upon the resources of the people. The Capital un doubtedly thought there would be no means of officially controverting ita false claims of payment, and they would gain credence because official data to the contrary would not be accessab...

THOU ADVOCATE. 7 THE DAILY "HEW E2A." We are in receipt of copies of this new venture in Populist journal ism, and desire to make its appear ance the occasion for a few statements that it appears to as are of no little importance at this time. First, how ever, we will speak of the paper itself. The prospectus states that it is started under the auspices of the executive committee of the People's party of Shawnee county. Cyrus Coming is its editor, and he is as sisted by his daughter, Miss Eva L. Coming, as associate. No one will question the eminent ability of the editorial force to make a paper that will not only be a credit to all con cerned in it, but also a power for good in the party. The Advocate enter tains no spirit of jealousy to prevent us from wishing the adventure the most abundant success. We realize the necessity of a daily paper, and earnestly hope that from this modest beginning, much more may be real ized. We realize also, and desire here to express our appreciation...

a TEDS ADVOCATE. PROSPECTIVE ADmiSTBATIVE POLICY. T7a ara to Hava Better Times Will tha People bo Deceived Thereby? Wedosire at this time to suggest to Advocate readers that the repeal of tha purchasing clause of the so called Sherman law does not com prehend the whole of the administra tion program upon the questidn of government finance. That job has been undertaken early in thepresi dantial term in order that the de moralizing effects of the measures necessary to secure its accomplish ment may be counteracted by subse quent .acts before the opening of another presidential campaign. While there was a full determination of the Wall street forces and their hireling press to secure the complete over throw of silver as another step toward the asbolute control of our circula ting medium by the banking corpo rations, they recognized that publio sentiment among the masses of the people was so strong against such a proposition that heroio measures would be necessary to secure its ac compl...

TX-IHj advocate. 9 soon as the present objects have been attained. Will the people be de ceived by this policy simply because they may share, for the time being, in a certain measure of the benefits which must be, to some extent com mon to all under snch improved conditions? We may not have hit npon the pre cise plan that will be adopted by .the conspirators, bnt that an era of better times will be brought about before the close of this administration for the purpoaes heretofore named we have not the least donbt. Whether the people will be again lulled to sleep by it remains to be seen. We are inclined to believe that the edu cational movement of the past few years has rendered the accomplish ment of that part of the project de cidedly improbable. THE AEMY OF THE UNEMPLOYED.

THE ADVOCATE. Warning Voice of History. Gouge, in his history of banking, in referring to the severe contraction by the United States bank of its currency from the 6th of March to the 17th of May, 1819, said: "The bank was caved and the people were ruined. For a time the ques tion in Market street, Philadelphia, every morning, was not who had broken the previous day, but who yet stood. In many parts of the country, the distress was ss great as it was in Philadelphia, and in some places it was still more de plorabla." All this might have been avoided had congress continued to issue irredeema ble United States notes, not bearing any interest, and made fall legal tenders equally with coin, instead of having again chartered the United States bank to rob and plunder the people. Experi ence is the best teacher, and with this history of a sad experience before us, let us see who in congress dare to vote for a repeal of the tax that rid the country of the curse of state bank currency.

THE! ADVOCATE. 11 Why Is Europe Interested in a Gold Standard for the United States? Editor Advocate: I recently saw a published statement that England alone held of the United States, interest bear ing securities, including government and other municipal bonds, railroad and other corporation bonds, farm mortgages, etc , the sum of $3,600,000,000. I have prepared a table based upon $8,000,000,000 (and whatever the amount may be that we owe her millionaires, the proportion will be the same). I also base my table upon an average annual interest of 5 per cent which all must ad mit is too low. The standard gold dol lar contains 25.8 grains. The standard silver dollar contains 412.5 grains. The following shows the amount cf standard silver in the dollar if the ratio should be changed to 20 to 1 516. grains. 24tol 619.2 grains. 28 to 1 722.4 grains. The following table will give the num ber of grains of nine-tenths fine silver they are entitled to receive with the free and unlimited coina...

12 THE ADVOCATE. Amateur Financiers. Editor Advocate: la an editorial paragraph of the Sunday issue of the Wichita Eagle, it ia said that "amateur financiers will not do at euoh a time aa thla,". I Bubmit, in all seriousness, that the present situation is most positive evidence that the guild of money sharps, the regular practitioners of finance, "mil not do" either no 77 or at any time. For fully thirty years they have had exolu eive charge of the case, with the result that the patient has been growing worse all the time with regular recurrence of financial chills and the deadly malaria of "hard times," ending in the present utter collapse whiob has strewn the land with ruin. To change the metaphor, the regular engineers in finance have run the car of progress off the track and ditched the train, and it seems to me that the situa tion imperatively demands a new school of physicians a new order of engineers. A farmer or a fool couldn't do any worse in finance than the regular practi...

TwK2S .AJDVOO ATE. 13 To Populists And all Who BelieY8 in the Coinage of Silver. The battle is on in Virginia. The issue is clearly presented. The state convention of the People's party held at Lynchburg declared for the free coinage af silver and gold at the present legal ratio 18 to 1. There waa no dodging, no evasion. The ticket nominated, headed by Captain Edmund R. Cooke, for governor, is con ceded by all to be as strong and able as ever presented for the BUpport of voters in any state. The democratic convention at Rich mond was held during the discussion, in the house of representatives, of the Wil son unconditional repeal bill. In that discussion eastern democrats main tained that the Chicago platform of 1892 meant a gold standard. The democratic president had so construed it. Some western and southern democrats claimed that the platform of 1802 meant free coinage of silver with gold. In the Riohmond convention a few genuine and sincere friends of silver coinage advo cated th...

Thcsa Amendments to tha Australian Bal lot Law. Editor Advocate: Complaint has been often times made by tha demo cratic newspapers that the "Populist sold them out on the Australian ballot law." Let us look at this matter a little. After the bill reached the house and was called up, Iloch, speaker pro tern, moved its in definite postponement the vote stood yeas, - 52; nays, 60 (see house journal, psge 659), only one Populist voting to postpone, while fifty-one republicans were willing it should die then and there. Of course the amendment offered by Mr. Greenlee is the part objected to by the democrats, and with some reason, but were the Populists to blame? Every republican present voted for it, every Populist and democrat against it And bo, also, on the substitute for section 1, offered by Mr. Troutman. It has only led to embarrassment and confusion, de claring that townships and cities shall pay their own expenses incurred under the law, while the second section pro vides that ever...

Mr. Van Alen believes, to use bis own words, that: 'America is no fit place for ladies and gentlemen to live in.'" "The appointment of Mr. Van Alen has been discuesed' for months.

The resolution is certainly a very important one, and Btrikes directly at a question which I believe the peoplo of this country would like to be enlightened upon.

JAKE! ADVOCATE. 3 Hill, for whom I have very high considera tion indeed, the other day used this language in discussing this question, which to me is the only surprising utterance the senator has made in this chamber during my time in it I will read from page 13(13 of the Record the re marks of the senator from New York In reply to the senator from Nevada Mr. Stewart : "Senators have a right, if they are fortunate enough to be able to do so, to hold stock In na tional banks, or in state banks, or In any other Institutions." The proposition that senators have a legal right to do that no one disputes, but that any senator or any officer of this nation or of any state has the right to own stocks or bonds in a corporation upon whose interests he sits In judgment, I deny. There never was a statute upon the face of the earth among English speaking people which suffered It; there never was a parliament throughout the entire his tory of England where that was done, where a man was suffered ...
