To the "Majah" Editor.
Communicated. Tbe Topeia Capital of Wednes day, January 31, devotes considerable spaoa to garbled extracts from tbe address of tbe Populist state com mittee to tbe people of Kansas and its comments thereon. It sounds like a bowl, from tbe first, of a pack of coyotes, and evidently it has been hurt. Had it honestly desired to answer the state ments made by tbe committee or com bated the position taken by them on the political questions of the day it would have published the address in full and ' given its readers an opportunity to have judged for these selves as to the fairness of its criticis m. But true to its well known practice of misrepresentation, it selects a few paragraphs to suit its pur pose, and by so doing, mutilates the document and then proceeds to dish up a lot of twaddle about sub-treasury, land loans, Canadian railroads, intrinsic value, etc, tbe entire article having no more reference to the address than it has to the Hawaiian muddle. It introduces the names of Peffer, Simpson and Davis, and makes the stereotyped charge that their teachings and utterances are responsible for the financial condition of the people and the loss of commercial credit, etc. We would ask the major, what about the dam project? Did not eastern capit alists invest their money in that enter prise? Were they deterred on account of Populist success in Kansas? And then the woolen mill you have boomed so persistently, has not eastern money been willing to embark in that under taking with even the passage of the Wilson bill staring them in the face? Major, you are somewhat inconsistent But let us refer back for a short period. The assignee of Lebold, Fisher & Co., of Abilene, has paid creditors of that firm 3 per cent, on claims aggregat ing $4,000,000, and they failed in 1883. There was no Populist party in Kansas then to drive capital out of the state, the republicans having their boasted plural ity of 82,000. There was also E. B. Parcel!, of Manhattan, who failed five years ago with liabilities of $650,000, and has paid creditors 2 per cent Do you mean to charge their failure to the teachings of Peffer, Simpson and Davis? If space permitted we might mention many other financial disasters that oc curred at a time when the republicans were in the hey-day of their success, and if your reasoning is sound all these failures should be charged up to the teachings and practices of your party. Speaking of immigration not coming to the state. Will you tell us of a state in the union that is receiving accessions to its population? On the contrary, is it not a fact that thousands of foreigners are leaving our shores every week for their former homes, being no longer able to earn a living in this country? And this is the condition after the republican party has had control of the government for over thirty years. We would be pleased to be informed of some section of the country where real estate is not dead and unsaleable. Why, major, you know by actual experience that before the People's party came into existence land was almost unsaleable in Kansas except at the hands of the sheriff. And then your assertion that the only safe basis for money is its intrinsic value sounds rather queer coming from you. Have you forgotten the speech you made at Erie in 1873, when you were the greenback candidate for congrees in that district, in which you advocated the financial doctrines of that party and abo prophesied that the republican party would fall to pieces from its cor ruptioa and rottenness? Are not the financial theories you taught in those days aa sound to day as they were then? And has cot the republican party be come more corrupt and rotten in the mean time? And has not your prophesy been fulfilled? We think it has. You gave utterance to those senti ments in the days of your manhood when you were imbued with a spirit of justice and before the siren voice of the tempter had lured you from its paths. But in an evil hour she appeared to you holding in her hands the sceptre of power and position; your strength failed you, and, like many others who have trod the same path, you bowed before the omnipotent throne of gold and be came one of its most earnest votaries. Ever since the four leading railroad companies of the state subscribed $4,500 each to the capital stock of your paper and started you on your downward career you have been one of the willing tools of corporate greed and have prosti tuted your talents and ability for the enslavement of your fellowmen. And while we are on this subject let us remind you of the republican state convention of 1800. You occupied the position of chairman of the committe on resolutions in that body and reported a lengthy platform that included about all the "isms" that have ever been in corporated into one document of that description. We will reprint one of them to refresh your memory: The practical operations of the silver act now in force, recently passed by a repub lican majority and opposed by a deraocratio minority in both houses of congress, is rap idly increasing the value of silver. It is a good step in the right direotion, but we, the republicans of Kansas, demand free coin age of silver, a measure strongly opposed and vigorously denounced by the late dem ocrats administration, led by ex-President Grover Cleveland. How would you like to adopt such a plank on the silver question to-day? Was it a fake then, or are you the fake now? Do you not know that the repub lican party has been tbe great party of fakirs and hypocrites for yeare? That they have adopted planks in their plat forms for the purpose of catering to publio opinion with no intention of car rying them out when elected. In 1878 you adopted a greenback platform and resolved against national banks. In 1880 you favored government ownership and construction of railroads. You have been on all sides of every question that has been agitated for years past, and neither you nor any other republican in the state would dare to predict what position tbe party will occupy on any public question three months in ad vance. The eyes of the People's party "is sot," you say. If we are not mistaken you have made such predictions before. Read the editorials you have written in the last four years and see if there is not a sameness, as it were, in the expression you use about the demise of the Peo ple's party, and yet, notwithstanding your predictions, the People's party still Uvea X Y Z.

Thosfto fc linos, 1C0 W. 9th Street, Kansas City, Mo. Boodling ith Both Sides. Now comes the startling disclosure that Mr. J. F. Tillman, Mr. Harrity's register of the traaau.y, boodled during the national campaign with both old parties. He not only sold his traitorous wares to the democrats but republicans as well. This young Napoleon of boodle- dom received $500 each from five mem bers of President Harrison's cabinet, or $2,500 to purchase the Toiler, an Alliance paper in Nashville, Tenn for the pur pose of turning it against the democratic party of that state. He also offered to sell 90,000 names of Alliance men in the different states to the republican na tional committee for $30,000. In this he failed, but he did succeed in selling the names of Alliance men in one of the states to a republican official for about $1,100. All these facts, for such they are, have been laid before Mr. Carlisle and President Cleveland, and the pros pects are bright for this boodling, trait orous individual being summarily turned out of office. Just now he is busy trying to prove an "alibi," but it wont work. The proof is beyond dispute and admits of no other interpretation. There is one other man that will be reached soon in spite of all his cunning, and then the Alliance will learn to its horror the class of boodlers and scoundrels it selected for high and important places.
