Dec. 24,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. II Whitaker (N. G.) Rattler: Yon may talk of the tariff, of the free coinage of silver, of the expansion of currency and all your other issues,-but if something on the order of the Bub-treasury plan does not crowd the apex and take the control of the circulation from the hands of the money sharks, we had just as well close out to the hightest bidder now and save what little we can, for all our efforts will be in vain. These issues are necessary, highly im- portant and we may say with truth, vital, but yfet they are only the hand- maids of the first great vital principal which will restore liberty and prosper- ity to the massses. ••• DeKalb (Tex.) News: True democ- racy is of the people and for the people, and not a party of politicians for the advancement of the interest of a few. The people are not so much interested in what individual shall hold office, but they are concerned about what policy shall be pursued. They ask and demand relief from their ...

Dec. 24,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 13 Mr. Dixon on the Allianoe. We note in the N. Y. World tha the Rev. Thomas Dixon hac something to say for the Farmers Alliance yesterday in his remarks preceding his sermon in Associa tion Hall. He said that it was by no means sure that the recent elec- tion had proven the death blow to the Alliance—"this nameless hob- goblin with hayseed in its hair," 1 'The simple truth is," he said, "that all this talk about the death of the Farmers Alliance and In dustrial Union is cheap partisan twaddle. Its life is not involved in the fight. It is not seriously affect ed by these elections because it is primarily a moral not a political movement. The movement is in its last analysis a religious move- ment and finds its basis on the religious nature ot the millions oí under masses who compose its rank and file. Not a single one of the problems that gave birth to this movement has been met as yet. They have not even been given a hearing They have been hooted out...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Dec. 31, 1891. i. quite naturally he comes to look with a good deal of favor upon our government loans at 2 per cent. I might write about the tariff question, but when I look in my desk and gaze upon a double hand fill of newspaper clippings con cerning solely the organization of trusts and "combines," not over looking the investment which ''British gold" has made in our best-paying big businetsas, I am dismayed at the task before me. As I look over item after item I find a constant repetition of how a dozen or two competing "infant" industries have been consolidated by a pur- chasing syndicate into one big gi ant corporation thus making competition utterly impossible; while the "tired old man" industry commonly called faoming is crooking his back and asking ? where in this world is it all going to end? And when I realize that foreign "pauper" immigrant laborers, that used to come over to this land of the free in two's and three's are now being transported to our w...

Dec. 31, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. if ▲ Paper Dollar vs. a Oold Dollar. One of the claims 3et up by the single or gold standard men is that the intrinsic value of the dollar should equal its legal tender or face value. This is one of their strongest arguments against what they are pleased to call a cheap silver dollar and a paper money. These men do not claim for an in- stant that there is gold enough to furnish a suflicient volume of cur- rency. In the light of the facts they could not do so. By refer- ence to the report of the director of the mint for 1890, page 84, we find the total stock of gold in the United States, November 1, 1890, was $694,865,680. This statement includes bullion not coined which we can reasonably consider as available for money. If it were possible to put all this money in active circulation it would give us about $11 per capita of a circulat- ing medium. In the discussion of this important question it is well to take into consideration the cir- cumstances up...

I have read your able ruling against the sub- treasury democrats, and without endorsing or condemning the same, I desire to invite your attention to the following question, and request your answer: Is a man a democrat who owns stock in a national bank in this state? And if so, ought he be al- lowed to vote in the democratic primaries, or take part in the coun- cils of the democratic party? HaviDg asked a ruling on the above question, and having the au- thorities before me, I trust you will pardon me for calling your atten- tion to them. In doing so, I do not mean to underrate your ability, for your political intelligence and fealty is kn...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Dec. 31,1891 "Tariff—Class Legislation—Un- constitutional." JAMES ARMSTRONG. The changes rung upon these three words, by the old political partisan harks, are disgusting. Every time one of them gets up to address the "dear people," whom he loves so well, be he democrat or republican, about the only thing remembered by his audience, is tariff; tariff for protection; tariff for revenue only; tariff; class legis- lation; unconstitutional. In the language of the good old preachers, to whom I used to listen in the halcyon days of boyhood, I feel like saying, as they did, when through singing the winding up hymn, "brethren let us"—puke. The hand writing is, on the wall, and the Belshazzars are reading it; but instead of reading it aright, they would have the people believe as the dutchman understood the preacher's text, "Minnie, Minnie, come tickle the parson." The people do [not understand it that way; and the days in which the old political bosses have tickled each o...

Dec. 31.1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. i\ 'r ,7 Thoughts for Thinkers. J. AV. DUNN. It is to the farmers of America, regardless of locality, political or society affiliations, that the follow- ing thoughts are ollered: The average American is proud of his country, and well may he be, when he considers the vastness of our resources, the diversity of our climate and soil, the great va- riety and abundance of our agri- cultural and mineral products, and the magnitude of our manufactures and commerce. But 15 cent corn, 60 cent wheat and 6 1-2 cent cot- ton to pay off the mortgages on 9,000,000 homes and the billions of national, corporate and individ- ual indebtedness in the products of labor, is proof positive that the producing classes are crushed to earth beneath a load of debt that they will never be able to discharge without a change in the financial policy of our government. The financial problem has en- gaged wiser heads than mine and I earnestly pray that a small frac- tion of this gen...

Dec. 31,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 I \ f RAILWAYS AND GOVERN- MENT OWNERSHIP. « The idea of the government own- ership of railways and telegraph lines, was for years hooted at and ridiculed, and those advocating it were roundly denounced as ''anar- chists," "socialists" and "cranks." Public opinion has undergone a complete revolution. This is nat- ural enough when the causes have been reviewed. Take the Union Pacific railroad, for illustration. Congress issued bonds, and sold lands, built the road and turned it over to a set of heartless specula- tors,(taking a mortgage on the prop- erty,) who were to pay ail interest on the loans, and return the prin- ciple as well. Neither of which has been done; but from time to time, congress has been called upon to pay the interest, and says Mr. C. W. Davis, in the Topeka Advocate, "their indebtedness to the gov- ernment, with many years of un- paid interest, amounting to more than $50,000,000, which is more than the cash cost of the railway, up...
