te< i Nov. 26,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 15 r> Li Sab-Treasury Flan. For the benefit of those who are interested in the present status of the sub-treasury plan, the National Economist of a recent date gives the following list of states that have held their annual meetings and adopted the plan: 1 Alabama South Carolina North Carolina Georgia Maryland Virginia West Virginia Florida Arkansas Tennessee Mississippi /fexas Louisiana Indian Territory Michigan Kansas Iowa California Indiana Illinois North Dakota Delaware Wisconsin Colorado Oklahoma Oregon Washington Missouri. In twenty three states is was re- aflirmed unanimously. In Ala- bama and Arkansa?, there was one vote each against it. In Virginia two, in Florida five, making a to- tal of nine votes in twenty-seven states opposed to the sub-treasury plan. In Missouri the plan was practically carried by a large ma- jority, but wisely referred back to the sub-Alliances, and will doubt- less be unanimously endorsed by the next meetin...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Dec. 3,1891. ley's object, was to cut off debate, and dictate political conventions, for the purpose of perpetuating in office a junta of politicians, thereby perpetuating in office those who have proven themselves to be in- imical to the just demands of good government. The signers to the protest are democrats, who have always voted the democratic ticket, and in future intend to practice what they preach, by asserting their rights as freemen. This is no Farmers Alliance, nor any other organized labor move- ment, but a plain, bTunt protest, Those who signed it are men of nearly every calling in our state, and, as stated, are democrats "to the manner born." The Farmers Alliance has not, and will not have any official connection with it, or any other partisan political move- ment, but on the contrary, it is a movement 011 the part of demo- crats, to preserve democratic gov- ernment in Texas. Our appeal means war to the knife against the Finley, Hogg and Wall street c...

Dec. 3, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. The Principle of Banking. The business of banking is an- cient and honorable, because it is profitable, but the people don't seem to understand the funda- mental principle of banking, al- though every person must know that banks loan money to busi- ness people, who go and pay their debts with that borrowed money, which in turn is almost certain to be deposited in that or some other bank, before sundown. The following illustration is based upon the experience of busi- ness men, in every city on this earth, and it can be easily under- stood, by taking 21 persons, whose initial letters begin with the let- ters of the alphabet, stopping with the letter U. The national government, hav- ing called its bonds for payment, under section 3,093, of the revised statutes, as well as under the act of March 3, 1881, Mr. A. goes to the treasury department, at Washing- ton, D. C., and lays down his bonds to the amount of $100,000, and takes up his money, and goes arou...

And wagfs have de- preciated in the same proportion, as has the price of farm products. It is rumored that the bosses are going to get up an article requiring democrats to entertain certain thoughts before they may take part in convention.—Sparta (Tenn.) Alliance Democrat. In Texa5 , according to N. W. Freeley, chairman, etc., Alliance men who believe in the practica- bility of the sub-treasury theory are "read out" of the party. There are too many calamity politicians in Texas who ought to be between the plow-handles in- stead of chewing borrowed tobacco and predicting disaster. — Fort Worth Gazette. "That's right."

Dec. 3,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 5 \ Let the farmers of the South be truly thankful for the great cotton crop with which they have been blessed by a benificent, allwise Creator, making the supply so much greater than the demand that they cannot realize the cost of pro- duction, notwithstanding that none of them have cotton clothes enough, owing to the contraction of the circulating medium caused by the great money power of Lombard street, London, and Wall street, New York, For these prosperous and happy conditions let the Southern farmers and poor people who wear cotton clothes and have not enough to be doubly thankful. Let the working people of all classes and conditions, be thankful that we have two great political parties in this country, controlled by their separate bosses, having issues as two parallel lines, none of which concern them, but which they are bound to settle, if it de- stroys the government, viz, one is in power and the other wants to be, and both are controlled by t...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Dec. 3,1891 The Paradise of Bondholders. Since I860, the people of the United States of America have been "robbed" of over $11,500,- 000,000, and in detail as follows: The "Undivided Profits" of less than 4,000 national banks since 1863, on a capital which never equalled $700,000,000, was the ap- palling sum of over $7,000,000,000 which is about 40 per cent profit per annum. The "surplus" of those banks is no# over $200,000,000. The interest paid to the national bondholders from 1861 to 1891 was over $2,550,000,000. The premiums paid to them from 1888 to 1891 was over $50,000,000. The principle of the bonds which has been paid between 1865 and 1891 was over $1,700,000,000. The debt, in bonds, in 1865 was $025,000,000, and in 1891 it is less than $600,000,000 although in 1869 it was over 000,000, and «till it will takcGm'pre cotton, or corn, or wheat, nay, or other products of the people to pay the remainder of the bonds than it would to have paid the whole debt i...

Dec. 3,1801. SOUTHERN MERCURY. Temple (Tex.) Times: Whatever , scheme may be adopted for the circula- tion of more money among the people, there can be no permanent relief unless it is made impossible for those who now have special privileges to ie-absorb this proposed addition to the circulat- ing medium. The showers that fall upon the mountain side find their way to the rivers and seas, and so will what ever extra issue of money that may be put in circulation, with the existing laws. The laws can be changed so that no man shall have the advantage in law over his neighbor, and in a free competition in all things may be found a condition that may permit of the in- dustrious worker securing to himself the results of his labor. ** Fort Scott (Kan.)

Elsewhere in to-day's Mbrcuuy will be found the Manifesto issued to Texas democracy, and below we give the opinions of several of our Texas cotem- poraries, without comment: They are right in one thing, and that is that it is not for Chairman Finley to say what does and vliat does not con- stitute a democrat or democracy.—San Antonio Express. The sub-treasuryites are determined not to allow themselves to be read out of the democratic party.—Houston Post. Chairman Finley will read with inter- est the following little extract from the manifesto of the sub-treasury demo- crats, recently promulgated: "We hold this truth to be self-evident, that the appointment of Chairman Finley as chief of the state executive commit- tee did not invest him with the attri- bute of democratic infalibility, nor place in his keeping the souls and con- sciences of individual democrats."— Dallas News. No democrat will object to a member of the sub-treasury ...

14 SOUTHERN MERCURY Dec. 3,1891. Monarchies and Republic*. WILLIAM B. HADEN. The above are the names of the two forms of government, under which the nations of the world live; that is, as every reader of history knows, some are republics and oth- ers are monarchies or empires. Webster defines the former, "a state governed by representatives elected by the citizens," and the latter, "government vested in one man." One familiar with history, an- cient and modern, has learned something about the way kings and queens carry things under their sway. The "royal family" of Eu- rope, is an illustration of govern- ment run in the interest of the few, at the expense of the many. The "crowned heads" seem to think themselves superior to other mor- tals, and look down upon the "com- mon herd" with contempt. We sympathize with the oppressed multitudes of the old world, not noticing the trend of affairs in our own republic. We applaud our fore-fathers for their v alor in re- aisting the powerful ar...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Dec. 10,1891. What Fools These Mortals Be! A man may be a high tariff man and be a good democrat. He may be a free trader, and be a good democrat. He may be in favor of free silver, or of a single gold standard, and be a good democrat He may favor national banks, or oppose them, and be a good dem ocrat. He may favor an increase of the currency, or its contraction, and be a good democrat. But if he favors the Ocala demands, this is heresy. What nonsense for sensi- ble men to talk sucli stuff. The very men who are loudest in their denunciation of the Ocala demands, and the most persistent in assert- ing their own democracy, are those who have in the past, been the most unreliable. Democracy in the past, meant certain fixed prin- ciples of government. To-day it in a vague term, and different sec- tions require a different definition. Originally democracy meant the will of the people as expressed through a majority. When the federalists and tories, under the elder Adam...
