Dec. 17,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. An Oft Made Statement Answered We are in receipt of a private letter from an influential citizen of East Texas, from which we take the liberty of taking the following extracts, because they set forth the argument relied upon by the ablest opponents of the Alliance de- mands. We number each point raised, that our readers may more easily realize the force of what is asserted. The extracts are as follows: 1. "The unprecedented low price of cotton is making the far- mers poorer each year, and natur- ally retarding the development of the South. It naturally makes the farmer restless, and he very ap- propriately looks for relief from some source." 2. "The farmer is made to be- lieve that more money is what is needed. * * * It is not the want of money so much, as over- duction. There is too much cot- ton planted and too little corn and wheat, and too few hog raisers in the South." 3. "Whenever the coton rais- ers of the South learn that by rais- ing a small ...

bee. 11,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 6 PRESIDENT JONES SPEAKS. To the Members of the Farmers Alliance ot Texas: Brethren—In view of the gen- eral misunderstanding of many people in Texas in reference to the relation of the Farmers Alliance to political parties, I deem in neces- sary to issue this address. The Farmers Alliance is and al ways has been, a political organ- ization. Our first declaration of purposes reads: "We shall labor to educate our members in the science of economic government, in a strictly non-par- tisan spirit." The word "politics," means the science of government, hence our organigation is political: but it will never become a political party, or in any way officially endorse any political party, for the simple rea- son that all of the unjust condi- tions that now bear so heavily upon the people, are the outgrowth of partisan prejudice, developed by the various partisan political or- ganizations. I am of the opinion that the time has arrived when all prejudice should...

Dec. 17,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. II St. Paul (Minn) Great West: That the sub-treasury plan is working up the animals in gilded cages, is manifest. Wall street monopoly rings and their bosom friends, the national bankers and usurers, are shocked and troubled more than they are willing to show or admit. Evidence is coming to light that large contributions have been made by usurers and speculators, i a all parts of the country, and by the com-, bining of both parties, to disrupt the Alliance, more particularly in the South in cities and towns having nationa] banks. Why do the plutes rage? Does the sub-treasury plan scrape their cu- ticle? * * * Linden (Tex.) Alliance Standard: Why should the leaders of the gov- ernment so object to the^increase of cir- culation of money, when it will be of as much benefit to them as any other class? The people don't want to rob them of their claims. They simply want more for themselves. "The la- borer is worthy of his hire." Only pay him for what he doe...

Democracy is but an ex. pression of the principle involved in that saying of Jesus: "As ye would that men should do unto you, do you even unto them." Which is the State Alliance?

Dec. 24, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. Bdfter Q. Mills. FAIR PLAY. The writer has known Roger Q. Mills personally more than 20 years, was a spectator in the dem- ocratic convention, held in the un- finished Methodist church house in Corsicana, in 1871, which was so nearly routed by the army of fleas, which gave the town a state- wide reputation, for the production of this vermin. Here and there at his old home, Roger Q. Mill was nominated for the lower house of congress, and of course was elected at the ensuing election. He has been chosen at every election since, and hence has been in the United States congress for the last 20 years. During this long term of service, he has made a reputaiion, till to-day, his name is familiar all over the nation. At home he is an absolute free trader, advocating the abolition of customhouses, and the annihilation of the army of cus- toms and revenue officers. Abroad he is known as the champion of "tariff reform." He has devoted what time he has given to ...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Dec. 24, 1891. PBE8S COMMENTS. The sub-treasury craze is gi act- ually petering out.—Waco (Tex.) Day. The Day's wish was father to the thought. The Day and JJudge Clark will find it different at the proper time. The total abolition of the credit system will beat a sub-treasury too bad to talk about.—Nacogdoches Chronicle. But how are you going to abol- ish the "credit system," without first establishing the the sub-treas- ury? Must have plenty of money to do that. Phone us your remedy, please! It looks now very much as if there would be no use of holding a national democratic convention next year.—Crocket Courier. While we are all in favor of a reduction of the tariff, yet we must have more money. IÍ the party makes the fight on tariíí alone, it would not only be useless to hold the convention, but to run a ticket.

Dec. 24,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. Immigration and Hard Times. The Dallas Morning News made unceasing warfare on the alien land law from its enactmen, until it was declared inoperative by the supreme court. In a recent issue ot that paper appeared a lengthy editorial on the alien land law and immigration, in which the News lays all the blame for existing con- ditions to the alien land law. The Mercury has always advo- cated immigration, has offered ev- ery inducement that sound finan- cial judgment, and an honest ob- servance of accuracy and truthful- ness would permit; but it has al- ways opposed strained statements of the advantages offered to pen- niless adventurers and paupers. We need more honest industrious laboring men, who have small capital, but who are blessed with the heritage of brawn, muscle and manhood—who are willing to put their shoulders to the car of pro- gress, and labor for the advance- ment of our loved Lone Star State. We have already an abundance of mistletoe gro...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Dec. 24, 1891 Folk's Vigorous Reply. The following is from the Wash ington (D. C.) Post: "President L. L. Polk, of the National Farmers Alliance is v ry- indignant at the manner in which Mr. W. S. McAlister quoted him in an interview published in last Wednesday's Post. He was seen last night at the National Hotel, and spoke quite freely. 'Iam sure,' he began, 'that the Post is disposed to be fair and con- siderate to all, and I am glad of the opportunity to make clear my relations with this man McAlister. In the interview which appeared in the Post I am quoted as being thororoughly con- vinced that the charges brought against Macune from time to time are true, and so on. As a matter of fact, I had-no conversation with McAlister regarding anything, and have never expressed myself to anyone as being convinced of any charges being true regarding Macune. The latter occupies an official position in the Alliance, and in such capacity we are brought closely together, an...

Dec. 24,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. Valuable Suggestion. The following address issued by the state lecturer of the New York State Alliance contains suggestions that will be valuable to all Alli- ances in Texas. We as\ all Alli- ance men to read it and bring it before their sub-Alliances: "The importance ot maintaining interest in subordinate Alliances cannot be over-estimated, as all power and all revenue by which educational work is to be promul- gated comes from the members of subordinate Alliances. There is no favored or privileged class in Alliance work. Every member must do his share if we would succeed in securing the relief which is demanded for the indus- trial classes. In order to maintain a proper interest in sub-Alliances it is especially important that every member should be present at every meeting of his Alliance. To secure this result the members must be made to feel that they are being benefitted by such regular attend- ance, and that they will be the loosers by staying ...

Dec. 24,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 HE AG AN AND SILVER. The Hon. John H. Reagan in his recent speech to the silver con- gress at El Paso, Texas, on 15th -Dec., 1891, remarked: "It may be useful to enquire how the interests of the people of the United States have been af- fected through the single commod- ity of cotton by silver demonetiza- tion. The price of cotton, in gold and silver coin in the year 1873, was 16.4 cents a pound. It is now worth 8 cents per pound. The aver- age yield of cotton per annum in the United States during the thir- teen years since silver was demone- tized has not been far from 6,500,- 000 bales. At 500 pounds to the bale this would make 3,250,000,- 000 pounds^ At 16 cents a pound it would be worth $533,000,000. At 8 cents a pound it would be worth 5260,000,000. This would show a loss, on the supposition that cotton would have remained at 16.4 cents, but for the degradation of silver, or $273,000,000 fer a single year. ' And for the thirteen years it would ...
