Jan. 21,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 r I m r' WHAT DOES THE BULE OF TAMMANY HALL MEAN? 1. It means a political ring in every county, congressional district and state that recognizes Tammany Hall as the Mecca of ttjeir politi- cal faith and its edicts as the Bi- ble of their political creed. 2. It demands the establishment of a local aristocracy founded upon the dollar, and under tribute to foreign Shylocks, and the transfer of supremacy upon American soil, to foreigners with powers more des- potic than lords under the ancient feudal system. 3. It means the farming out, by congressional enactment, of the at- tributes of republican government, to corporations under tribute to foreign Shylocks, a sure plan to speedily change free American cit- izens into helpless serfs to foreign landlords. 4. It means the conversion of our courts into instruments of fraud, by means of which foreign Shy- locks can extort the earnings of American citizens, and transfer them to their own pockets under the i...

PRESS COMMENTS. ¥ ' The statesmen of this age, are wasting their time over the politi- cal quibbles, and doing nothing great.—Dallas News. Yes, and the major part of all that they have done since the war, has been "small" and wrong. Beware of the gigantic political combination, by the terms of which Texas is to be delivered to Tammany.—Dallas News. There are a number of people watching this game, who are fully apprised of the intentions of cer- tain ' combinations, that have already been made. Tammany must be shelved. The farmer gets about one-third of the actual cost of his products. Who gets the rest? Some one please answer.—Ewing (Neb.) Ad- vocate. The speculator, middleman, and stockholders in produce exchanges; in short, those who live on "un- earned increment"—who never produce anything but want, misery, vice and crime. If there is one political fact made indisputable by the situation at the beginning of the year, it is that New York will be the main battle ground next Novembe...

The time is now approaching when it becomes every man's duty to carefully study the questions of the day When he has fully de- termined by cool, calm judgment, what is the truth, and what are the best means to have that truth put in force, let him move steadily forward, using all his in- • fluence, all his powers to attain this end. Let him follow the truth wherever it leads him. The time has passed when thinking men will submit to party.bosses. "Measures, not jnen, principles, not party," is the watchword for the true American citizen to-day. That reform in the financial sys- tem of the country, is the crying need of the hour, none will attempt to deny. How to obtain that re- form, is a question that deserves ths deepest study.

' fe h IP m K /,? Advance (N. Y.) Thought: In ths United States during the year 1864, when legal tender money was abundant in this country, there were but 495 bus- iness failures. In 1865 there were 520. In 1866 there were 632. Congress or- dered and carried on the destruction of legal tender money, giving out interest- drawing bonds therefor, so that in 1867, money began to be scarca, and in that year there were 2,780 business failures. The nnmber has steadily increased till in 1889 the total number was 13,277. From 1864 till the close of1889 the total number of business failures in the United States was 162,338, ef which at least 160,000 failed through the hellish interference of congress in the matter of demonetizing silver, destroying greenback legal tender and giving out interest-drawing bonds therefor. •% Boston New Nation: Why may not Jay Gould gamble, if the American pub- lic licenses him to do that sort of busi. ness?

WHOLE HO. 509. The Whole Sub-Treasury Argu- ment. When the sub-treasury ware- house plan was first proposed I took very little stock in in it. be- iüg, like a great many other peo- ple, somewhat afraid of anew idea But when I saw the plan attacked by the organs of monopoly and the money power, I began to suspect it worth while to look more care- fully into the matter. I am yet rather of the opinion that all neces- sity for the sub-treasury ware- house would be obviated were the people allowed a large a large in- crease of government currency in place of the nitional bank circula- tion; were they allowed cheap transportation thiough rigid state and national control of the rail- roads; were trusts, grain gamble- ing and speculation in food prod- ucts abolished; and were farmers to avail themselves ...

And then, too, what a glorious opening would be presented for the Rochdale sys tern for Grange and Alliance, and other co-operative systems! The 4 'inflation" scare wont work, and even if it does the debtor class will not be frightened in the least, since the burden of indebtedness cannot be effected. Now I come to real argument in the case: The sub-treasury plan will not create a permanent infla- tion of the currency, since ail the sub-treasury funds that go into cir- culation (the 80 per cent of the stored crops) just after harvest, will be taken up again, and thus removed from circulation whenever the stored products are redeemed for shipment and distribution—a prccess that will be gradual, and which must be completed inside of 12 months. No one will take the ground that a temporary inflation will lift prices after the fashion of a perm...

I % !A T ' I I V ' r of those metale; by which means it comes to pass that the intrinsic value regard in those metals, made the common barter, is nothing but the quantity which men give or receive of them, they having as money no other value than pledges to procure what one wants or de- sires." Baudau, an eminent writer of the early school of French econo- mists says: "Coined money in circulation is nothing, as I have said elsewhere, but effective titles on the general mass of useful and agreable enjoyment which cause the well being and propagation of the human race. It is a kind of bill of exchange or order payable at the will of the bearer." Henry Thornton in his work on Paper Credit" says: "Money of every kind is an order for goods. It is so considered by the laborer when he receives it, and it is al- most instantly turned into money's worth. It is merely the instrument by which the purchasable stock of the country is distributed with ad- vantage...

It is the exception when one of the farmers asks a direct question of the newspapers in the course of the discussion among the farmeis themselves. The News is howev- er disposed to answer for itself when it can hope to be of any use in public instruction. A Tyler correspondent asks: "Did you ever think how incon- sistent you newspaper fellows are in demandiDg the repeal of the alien land law so that we poor devils of farmers may mort- gage our lands to Johnnie Bull, and then opposing the sub- treasury scheme and saying that it would allow us to mortgage our lands to Uncle Sam?" In reply the News would say that the correspondent has got two questions, one of economy and the other of government, mixed to- gether. It might be a great saving to the farmer to mortgage his land to the United States government, but it is not democratic for the United States government to be- come the the banker and land own- er.

1 Jan. 28.1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 i J 1 I MONEY. Money is the creature of law. Intrinsic value has nothing to do with the money value of metal or substances, and the sooner the people learn this tbe better it will be for the general welfare. Again there is no more dangerous theory taught than the "specie basis" idea. If the United States has the metal, either gold or sil- ver, upon which to issue certifi- cates to circulate as money, then why not pay out the gold or silver and let in go direct into circula- tion? If the government issues gold or silver certificates to circu- late as currency and the exact amount of the certificates is not kept in the vaults with which to redeem such certificates (a certifi- cate being interchangeable or re deemable) then such certificates are dishonest. Then why have cer- tificates issued at all? If the gov- ernment acts dishonestly, there is no profit in the transaction to the government, the issuing of the cer- tificates is an unnecessary expens...

The less intrinsic value it has the better. The average municipal govern- ment is merely a passing around of the hat for a few popular friends. Galveston News. Join us in our effort to abolish all city and town governments, and in establishing taxing districts. The question is again suggested: "Is the Alliance a political party?" Corsicana Light. Why no.
