A FEW COMMON BE.N3S QITJ,TI0."3.
To the KiilL w of Tu K AJDVOCATE. J. V. Farwell, retired Chicago m?- chant, writes to the Independent that 75 per conk of the Kansas mortgai are nujita payable in gold; that free coinage of silver will not help them; that in cane the measure should become a law, gold would retire, Oliver and silver certificates circulate at discount and mix up things generally. Ho write an If the eame party waa to continue m power. We propoue to him the following: Suppose that when the new party comes into power la "J2 they find 8,000 tons of gold and 300,000 tons of nilver lying more than useless In vaults under the capital, that they conclude to deface the coin and sell it at auction to the hlgheut bidder for papor money and conclude to coin no mora Bllver or gold; what would their gold mortgagee bo worth? They had bettor look a little out; It Is dangerous to be Bafe, sometimes. The next Congress will be composed largely of members that have been schooled in economy taught to make bricks without Btraw or even stubble. They will propose such wildcat measures aa just aaaesHinent and equal taxation, equal Income, equal wages for equal sor- vcie, etc. He also eaya "there are too many farms," by which I Infer he means there is over production of farm products, aa cause for low prices. Another problem I submit to him: Why are there 100,000 poople In the United States almoBt starv ing or living on corn meal straight, and 20,000,000 persons without meat from oeven to five months every year, even among farmers, who raise and sell It at 2 to 8 cento per pound and are employed twelve to sixteen hours per day? And bow about the 10,000,000 persons that are willing to work If they had tools and land to work? How about the rush to Oklahoma and the impatience about the Cherokee Btrlp? Ten farms could be rented right here now whore there is one for ront. If the pooplo had employment at remunerative wages the demand for pork and beef could not be supplied even at 30 per cent, higher than now. Is there too much farming done? n. L. Ferris. niiLLirs COUNTY NXWS. To the Editor of The Advocatk. After a sojourn of six months in Colo rado, I returned homo to find the Alliance stronger than ever; Instead of going to pieces at the election and each voter go ing back to his old love as some had pre dicted. It carried everything in the county like an avalanche; but while we are rejoicing over the rcenlta, let us not forget that this is only the first step; as Mrs. F. Olmstead flays in one of her songs: "Many are the workers neodod to-night; mighty Is the work ahead." While a very large dose of new blood has been infused in the House of Repre sentatives, chronic corruption and rapaci ty still incapacitate the Senate from working in the Interest of the people and another dose of new blood will be neces sary before we can oxpoct any relief by legislation, and the United States Sonata will have to undergo the came medical treatment. Meanwhile every effort will be made by the oppordtlon to throw dis sension in our ranks, the old campaign claptrap of free trade and protection, sectional prejudices, and mlflra presenta tions will be used by a subsidized preisa trom the great dallies down to the Utile local papers, some of the latter's precari ous existence depending solely upon their fealty to party rlnjs and efforts to cover instead of eipoalog the misdeeds of a class of blood sucking vamplreo who lnfost our offices from our county court hou:!C3 to the national capltol. We will ntcd papers that will lay the truth before th people and edueaU the In Tub Advocate of February 13th Urother Kern, of Coward county, speak In; of the condition of the Alliance la thh county, oayi: "The great troublo la we have not the proper literature to teach the people anything outside of the county pepero, which oppose everything the Al liance docs that does not suit their taato. While Tnrc Advocates was sent to us lost fall at 30 cents a good many took it, but now they can not pctilbly take it. I wlah some arrangements would be made to let the peopU have it." If Drother Kern will permit a sugges tion probably the boot thing Is to do as we did la our lodge (Greenwood), and as others did In thto county. Lot the lodge subscribe for The Advocate, and for that matter any other paper too, If they can, and have them eent to the lecturer. In this way tbo members would at least get the moot important points at their meetings. Of courae this is not equal to every one having it at home, but was the beet W9 could do, for latit year when we organized our lodge overproduction and this year underproduction made times so hard that but few are able to subscribe for it, hence the above plan until better times. Perhaps the causes I give for hard times sound a little oil to you, Mr. Editor, but having for the last fifteen years sat at the feet of the Q. O. P. Gamaliels, I claim to be posted on this subject. Not wishing to occupy too much space in your paper will refrain thl3 time from trying to show that especially overpro duction is the prime causa of hard timet), but may try at some other time. O. Rubin. Crow, Kin., March 18, 1801. FBOM ELLSWORTH COUNTY ALLIANCE. We depart from our cuntoin with regard to the publlcatlonofreiolutloailaca.se of the follow lag, which relate to the opinion of the cormtltu- entiofono of the Veople'i parly Kopretonta- tlves. It will be found that thin will be the unl versal verdict of the pooplo, aodtho next Btate Senate will not obstruct tuch lobulation ai tholr constituent demand. Kditou. At an adjourned meeting of the Ella worth County Alliance, held in Klls worth, Kansas, on Saturday, March 14, 1891, the following was unanimously adopted R3 the sentiments of the meet ing: Whereas, Wm. W. Stanley, the Roprcflon tative elected in and for the county of Ells worth, and who has served in the Leei fila ture of the state of Kansas as Buoh Repro sontative, has junt clotted his labors for the prHont terra; and Whereas, Those opposed to and not in sympathy with the Alliance political move ment have villifled and stigmatized every manuure sot forth by said Allianoo for the relief of the raasHos, and in every ooncoiv able way have sought to mold public senti ment against it reproBontatire men. In view of thoBe facts your oommitfcoe has sought diligently to sea if any foundation for censure could be truthfully sustained, and have found nothing but a loyal obedi ence to the principles in every vote upon all measures in which Mr. Stanley was pledgod to the people before his elootlon. A further Investigation of your commit tee has found that much needed legislation has been piuMd by the House of Represen tatives and debated by the Senate for no other purpose than to doeitroy the efficiency of the Alliance as a political factor, hoping thereby to continue the old party in power, that life, liberty and the pursuit of happi nw8 could be assured only through tbowe who have held the power so long that its birthright rauct bo perpetual.
