3 greatest obstacles that ever threatened a nation's life and credit, you now say you quit the party because of the "exception In the legal tender act." Then you quit the party because the government, while compelled through necessity to prose cute a war for national life and human freedom upon credit, exercised its gov ernmental prerogative in collecting upon goods imported, the money necessary to pay its matured obligations, in order that it might maintain that credit upon which, next to its splendid soldiery, it relied for success. You quit the party, you say, because of the "credit strengthening act" Then you quit the party entrusted by the people with the control of govern ment, the prosecution of the war and the maintenance of the public credit, be cause that party in the face of threatened repudiation declared that the obligations of the government, every note and every bond, should be paid; because the party which had achieved such magnificent re sults for humanity, refused in the hour of triumph to mar the splendor of its greatness. Respectfully, H. B. Kelly. THE KANSAS REPUBLICAN PARTY. From the Nonconformist. The Republican party of Kansas points with pride to: The vote it gave McLemore in its con vention.

Suppose that the people of Kansas should take It into their heads to elect a pure judiciary men who would con sider the claims of justice rather than musty precedents of a forgotten past, or a stretching of the law to cover the de mands of corporate influences In short, men who entertain ideas in harmony with the Alliance demands, and this in spite of the cry of the old party political hacks that the good name and credit of the state is in danger, what then? In other words and direct to the point, what will you Republicans and Democrats, who are combining to beat the People's party in several judicial districts in this state, do if the People's party elect their candidates? The rank and file of your parties would submit, but well tell you what your leaders are fully capable of doing. If the worst comes to the worst in this country, in which the contest for the su premacy comes to a final issue between the people on the one hand and the money power on the other, there are hundreds of leaders In both of the old parties that would be the faithful allies of the money power. It is entirely possible for the people In their aggressiveness, in this work of overthrowing the plutocratic influences in bringing this country to its present condition, to bring down upon them selves the dangers of armed intervention of Great Britain In obedience to the de mands of the English money power. When we consider that 65 per cent of oar railroads, 45 per cent of farm mort gage indebtedness are owned by English capitalists, with millions upon millions invested in mines, manufactures, state, county and municipal securities, it is possible that the time may come when England may be called upon to protect British interests in the United States, aa she has done on several occasions in other counties, and we have men here in this country American citizens, leaders in the two old parties, who would prove themselves toriea and aid the English money power. We have had men in Congress for a quarter of a century selling themselves I for British gold, with more treason In their hides than was ever conceived by Benedict Arnold. Benedict Arnold, If he had succeeded in delivering West Point into the hands of the enemy, could not have entailed more injury upon his country than John Sherman has done in the last twenty years. We are not an alarmist, but we want to say that if we ever have war In this country between labor and capital and and statesmen have prophesied aa much for fifty years, English influences will bring it about, and it will come under the guise of protecting vested rights, and the blow will be struck against and to suppress the clamorings of the common or laboring people, and when It comes all snobocracy will be arrayed against the people.

Let everyone be present Reform Press Association please pub lish this notice. IT. E. Taubeneck, Chairman. Marshall, I1L, Septemer 23, 1891. CORRESPONDENCE. From Wallace County. Macon, Kan., Oct. 11, 1891. Editor Advocate: I thought I ought to let you know how the Alliance is dying here. In our township the Republican sheriff rode all day to drum up a crowd to attend the Republican primary, and he succeeded in securing an enthusiastic and harmonious assemblage, consisting of one voter, who said In the Republican convention he was the only Republican in the township. In the township is the Macon Alliance, No 1135, which Is the banner sub-Alliance of western Kansas, and they read The Advocate.

Reform papers will do the work if you can get the members to read them. A. C. McCarthy. The Rally at Marlon. Editor Advocate: In the Topeka Capital, dated Sunday, October 11, there is a special dispatch reporting a so-called "mammoth Republican demonstration" held at Marion on the day before. The report states that the city was decorated with flags and bunting and that ex Governor Anthony spoke to over 1,000 votes in the afternoon and that Mr. Dawes and Attorney General Bradford spoke to large audiences In the evening. Now this report is so monstrously false that it deserves denunciation, and the man who would so purposely and deliberately misrepresent the facta has no regard whatever for the truth. The facts, so far as it is possible to relate them are as follows: The grand rally was well advertised over the district fully four weeks In ad vance. There were three bands in at tendance, and up to 1 o'clock there was not fifty people in town in excess of the customary Saturday crowd. Mr. Anthony spoke in the afternoon to not to exceed 300 people, ladles Included. One reliable gentleman who actually counted the people said there were just 225 voters. In the evening Mr. Dawes spoke to about 300 all told in the court house, and Mr. Bradford to about fl f ty boys and transients on the street. As to the decorations there was not $5.00 worth of flags and bunting displayed, excluding a large flag that hung over the street Taken all around the demonstration was an absolute fail ure In both numbers and enthusiasm. There were not seventy-five farmers at all the speeches and they were mostly People's party men. Also there is an account In the Capital of eame date giving a report of the Peo ple's party gathering at McPherson on Saturday. The report puta the attend ance at 200, women and children In cluded. I am very reliably Informed that the attendance was very large In the afternoon, and Mr. Doster told me that bespoke to fully 1,000 In the evening, and a great number turned away because of the jam.

Garland, western passenger agent Insertion on California. In a recent magazine article, Mr. Er nest Ingersoll, the noted writer, says: The climate of southern California in winter closely resembles that of Egypt. Its equability is constant, and its dryness is proverbial. The only complaint made in, that it is too nearly perfect. Residents bred in the eastern states confess now and then that a rousing storm would give them a grateful sensation. But this sentiment meets with no favor from the man who has just fled from a superfluity of wetness and chilling galea. To him perpetual summer seems perpetual paradise, and to the invalid dreading the advance of disease the still and arid atmosphere is as the breath of life.
