8ENAT02 GEORGE 8PEAKS.
WiiHENaTON,July 25. The anti-option bill ww then takjJn up, and Mr. George addressed the senate. He said he would conflne himself almost exclusively to the effect of future dealings on the cotton In dustry, which was the main Indas-iy of the state which he In part repreoented. iThla year cotton had reached the lowest JoInt of prices reached by It In many years gone by. He eald the system of futures tad options had produced this effect The principal cotton market of the United States was the cotton exchange of New Orleans. That institution dealt eolely In futures and options, and was composed of about 800 men, not one of them a cotton planter. The only other cotton market of' the United States was the New York Cotton Eichange. No man who was engaged either In the produc tion of cotton or of consuming cotton, no man who was at either end of the line, production or consumption, was a mem ber of either of these exchanges, so that If the bill became a law, it would not be much of a restriction on the natural right of American citizens. " It would only interfere with 300 gen tlemen in New Orleans, and 'about the same number (he supposed) In New York i men who never raised cotton nor han dled cotton in anyway. In the year 1801 these two cotton exchanges had sold 33,000,000 bales of cotton, while the ac tual crop was a little lees than 8,000,000. He had the figures of dally sales in the New York Cotton Exchange which showed, he said, that on one day In Feb ruary, 1891, 1,500 bales of "mythical," "phantom" or "wind" cotton were sold to the one bale of real cotton. Was that, he Bsked, real, genuine commerce, or was It gaming? Having described the opera tion of "futures" and "options," he asked senators whether they would eay that these were not gambling contracts. The men who toek part in them might be, he said, privileged by their wealth, their re spectability, their church and Sunday school connection to do a gambling busi ness without being called gamblers, and so he would not call them gamblers. la Need of Readjustment. The following terse statement was clipped from the Boston Pott by the Woman's Voice: "On the same day, in the same police court In a oity of 40,000 Inhabitants, the same Judge fined one : nan $25 for beating his horse, and fined another man $5 for beating his wife. Thus a man who beats his horse gets five times the punishment meted out to one who assaults and beats his wife all In America." Eiery vote of the Prohibition party to day taken from the Republican party is half a vote to the mongrel oombine that utters no word in favor of prohibition and has for Its watchword, "Anything to beat the Re publican party." Topeka Capital. Take a taste of your own medicine. Every vote this year or any other yearj for the Republican national ticket is a full vote for a national license party, and Whitelaw Reld himself has Bald it How can you be loyal to a national license party and to prohibition at the same time? The Voice. : J. Ralph Burton left Indiana about thirteen years ago, a ranting Democrat Ten years ago he was a candidate for the the legislature on the Republican ticket Eight years ago he was a candidate again for the same place. Six years ago he was a candidate for congress. Four 'ears ago he was a candidate for the sslslature again. In 1803 he was a can didate for congress again. During all ' this time he has been a standing candi date for the state senate and the United States senate. The fellows who want odce have all joined the People's party. Clay Center Dispatch, C0RBESP0NPENCE. Saline County. Editor Advocate: J. R. Burton says it mvst be a "campaign of education and business," and we intend to meet him half way. We opened the campaign of the county last Friday. Although the farmers are busy with their grata, we had a good crowd, and raised $200 for the campaign fund. Three precincts of two townships have formed a strong club, and we will have speakers every two weeks till election. Our plan of raising funds Is for each person to agree to pay 25 or 50 cents a month for four months. Wears bound for victory "on business principles." A. N. Jackson. LmwooD, Kan., July 27, 1892. Editor Advocate: The harvest home picnic here to-day was attended by m:re people than ever before congregated at Linwood at one time. Col. W. A. Harris. S. S. King, Fred Close and others, dis cussed living issues to attentive auditors. While CoL Harris did not intimate as did Geo. T. Anthony, In his recent New Orleans speech, that he Is capable of "Culling the flowers of oratory and rhetoric," his address disclosed his ability to cull the flowers of logio and common sense. 8. S. King called Superintendent of the Census Porter to the witness stand to prove the outrageously Inequitable distribution of wealth in the United States under laws enacted by the old parties. Fred Close made a very favorable im pression on the majority of thoee who saw him and heard him speak. He will poll a heavy vote here. A. WONNEBERO. From one of the agents of millionaire Reld, we have received a two column ar ticle about how he has always loved the labor unions, asking us to insert the same and send bill. If we had space we would gladly give his trash and alongside of it print the bribe, but we haven't Reld hasn't enough money to control the edi torial columns of the Crisis. The letter and proposition was addressed to the old Colorado Farmer, of which the Crisis is a successor. Reld Is a "rat," an enemy to the laboring classes, and none such will vote for him except through blind preju dice or Ignorance. The Crisis. The Republican platform, recently adopted at Topeka, says that the Repub lican party la the law and order party. We suppose it had reference to J. K. Hudson's charge of Humphrey taking money from the state to conduct his cam paign, or it may have referred to the law and order age of consent bill. Who knows but it may have thought of Per kin's Indian education bill? A scheme to take six to ten sections of land in each township In the territory from settlers and give to land-grabbers. And again it may have been of the orderly manner in which Pinkerton thugs shoot down labor ers who object to the lowering of wages.
