Jan 14,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. Trusts and Combines. FARMER DEAN. Trusts and combinations, by and through which every article of trade is artificially increatd in cost t* the consumer, is the rule of the hour. No industry is willing or able to stand on its own merits in an open market. Every product of mine, shop or farm goes into the control of some trust or combina- tion as soon as produced, where it is made the means of extorting un- fair prices from the consumer or user. To such an extent has this sys- tem of combination been carried that no one dare enter into any in- di viual enterprise. These combinations enable those interested to not only sell at an ar- ti^ial price, but by driving out of the market all competitors, they aie able to dictate the pi ice to wiiich the farmer and laborer must sdl his raw products to them. Since trusts have become the rule, instead of the exception, they control legislation both state and national, so that they are able to escape taxation, thus t...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Jan. 14,1892. OFFICIAL. To the Bt other hood of the Nation- al Farmers Alliance and In- dustrial Un'on. We believe that the gnat prin- ciples upon which the demands of our order are based are correct. We believe that these principles are founded inequity and justice. We believe their recognition and adoption in our governmental pol- icy would conserve the beet inter estsofthe public weal. We be- lieve that the jufct equipo3e be- tween the great industries of our country, which is absolutely eu- sential to our existence as a free people, has been destroyed.

For want of this medium of exchange, this money, the creditors are forced to reoeive the debtor's property, in satisfaction of the debt, and the creditor is forced to let the pro p- erty lie idle on his hands, for want of money to set the laborers to work. He in turn, surrenders it to his creditors. Thus the rich be- come richer, and the poor become poorer. I have prepared a much more complete analysis and article on the money question, which will soon be published. I extend to you and to the Alliance a helping hand in this work, and whether the extended hand is strong or weak, it is a willing hand, for the common good. Very truly yours, R. M. Widney, Pres.

Those who oppose the sub-treas- ury plan say it is. That is about the substance of plutocratic ruling. TaE Mercury answers no, to (he direct question. The sub-treasuryites have grown jemarbably quiet. Have they shouted themselves too hoarse to talk or are they out on a still hunt? —Al varado Bulletin. They are all right! They are neither "too hoarse to talk," nor on a "still hunt." The trouble is the partisans, like you, can't find any way to further misrepresent them. No sane and right thinking man will deny there is much legitimate ground for complaint amongst the agriculturists and labor classes. The trouble is, no one has offered a remedy.—Wichita Herald. What about the sub-treasury plan? Or is the Herald so wedded to prejudice that it refuses to en- tertain, investigate, or even discuss the theory? The Ohio ...

I have a copy of the consti- tution of above date, and the dec- laration of purposes are the same of the new constitution, as of the old. Each declares to labor to ed- ucate the agricultural classes in the science of economic government, in a non partisan spirit. Whence comes all this cry about the Alli- ance go;ng into party politicb? It has never endorsed any political party, neither do I see any dispo- sition to do so. The Alliance has •a higher calling than that of foster- ing or boosting political parties. The Alliance Aras organized to instill correct governmental principles into the people, and not party prej- udice; hence its principles cannot be drowned in the political cess pools. Political parties may come and go, but the laborers of America will always need the Alliance. It would be well for political sore heads to hold up...

SOUTHERN same grasp of mind, would be of one opinion. Human intellects are all made after substantially the same pattern, and, where men are honest they will all agree, when the truth is made manifest to them. You are positive in your convic- tions until another man furnishes you with a better reason; but it you are a rogue no argument can touch you; for your soul is in your pock- et book, or some mean little am- bition. The worst foe we have is not the open enemy who stands outside the fence and blackguards us; but the smiling, sneaking, sup- ple scheming, plausible, "Oh, yes," corrupt scalawag who trains with us and hurrahs with us and all the time is seeking to sell us out or destroy us. When- ever you find such a man quietly draw the line; and let all men avoid him as if he had a pesti- lence. Drive him out; quarantine him; force him to go where he be- longs. When you have pitched him across the fence he may get upon his hind legs and shake his fist and howl and swear at you— bu...
