VIOLE 10. 502 The Benatorship. JAMES ARMSTRONG. In view of a probable call by the governor for an extra session of the legislature to elect a successor to Mr. Reagan, and other matters to be mentioned in the call; there is considerable interest being man- ifested as to who is the proper per- son for the legislature to select to fill the vacancy. The vacancy has already been filled by appointment, and it has not been proven that the selection made by the governor, is not as good as could be made by any other power, except by a di- rect vote of the people. Horace Chilton is an untried lactor in na- tional legislation. All th , other aspirants so far as heard Irorn. or who stand any chance for election by the legislature, are old, well tried hands at the business. There has been conside...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Feb 11.1892. taken a very correct view of this bo far as he has gone, but he did not go far enough. He did not say where this money came irom or how obtained, that was so lavishly spent by our representatives in congress. It was taken from the trembling, stiffened back of age, tottering on the verge of the grave; from the scanty stores of widow- hoodjand orphanage, from the mouths of sucklings and babes, from the virtue of woman, and from the pockets of the strong armed sons of toil, by a sneaking, under- handed thieving tax, which takes your property without your knowl- edge, and bears two names: One, tariff for protection—republican; the other, tariff for revenue only— democratic. Both can be covered by the one word, theft. Let's mount upon the wings of thought and travel over this broad country of ours, and view the peo- ple.who are robbed of their hard earnings by this devilish insatiate monstrosity, known as the tariff,for no other purpose than to rob the poor...

Feb. 11,1892. ' SOUTHERN MERCURY. .y ■C The Issue of '92. We are again on the eve of a presidential contest. Partisan leaders are vainly attempting to rally their scattered hosts around the time worn and battle-scarred remains of tariff reform. For years statesmen— ?o-called —have marshalled the wealth pro- ducers, and with drum and flam beau, with bandanna and tin pan fought the fight to a finish, the question being "shall we revise it it up or down?" After the victory, after the ech- oes of the last hurrah had died away, when every fifth man who had been promised a postoflice re- ceived his commission and the oth- er four retired to nurse their wrath the spoilsmen—beneficiaries of the present system—gathered in the yearly dividend and clipped the semi-annual coupon, and made merry upon the toil of the labor- ers who had by their votes given them leave to rob them and their families of the just rewards of their toil. And now when the contest again approaches we see these same spoil...

The people must use railroads and the sooner they own them the better it will for the people. The government is only the ma- chinery to do our business with, and is owned by its superiors, the people, who have imagined them- selves too busy to operate it, so have loaned it out to parties who compel us to keep it in repair, and are not at all inclined to bring it home. Míe must go after it, repair it and use it to carry on our mon- ey, land and railroad business, and for the family|at home. We should study and discuss the best methods of becoming railroad owners. I have asked a goodly number their opinion as to how this can be done, and about 50 per cent say "buy them;" about 30 per„ cent, "condemn and take them at a fair valuation," and the remaining...

k" Feb. 11.1892 SOUTHERN MERCURY. r ,s\ Blunders in High Places. John Jay Knox, ex-United States Comptroller of the currency, con- tributes an article on bank circula- tion and free coinage, to the Feb- ruary number of the Forum, which contains many expressions and statements that are misleading and ambiguous. In the discussion he referred to a report made by himself to con- gress during his term of office, wherein he says "few persons have a just conception of the many ad- vantages possessed by a homoge- neous currency, fully secured, the issue of a single system redeemable at a common point." Just one word spoils the entire proposition, "redeemable." If our strong men like Mr. Knox would abandon that objectionable express- ion which has enabled the money power of all countries to enslave the people, he would be nearer the solution of the question. Reform- ers and humanitarians do not want a currency, or money, of any kind that is '' redeemable." We want it to circulate all the tim...

Boston controlled liast In- dia goods, Baltimore West India products, Philadelphia and New Orleans done a small importing and a large manufacturing busi- ness. These were main sources of supply. In New York was con- centrated the main supply of the country. Many firms of brokers supplying inland cities, large and rich wholesale drug firms, strong importing houses—all conduced to the establishing of branch houses from all the large firms resident in other cities. In the City of New York all goods were purchased in open market. Competition was ac- tive and stroDg. There were no trusts.

r Feb. 11.1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY, 9 ishment of national banks as banks of issue and asks that the circulating medium be restored to the govern- ment to whom it justly and con- stitutionally belongs. The Alli- ance claims that it will take 850 per capita to do the business of the country on a conservative cash ba- sis. No one will deny that this $50 per capita is not a conservative es- timate of the amount needed. The 11th census reports, as far as we have been able to obtain them, show that in Alabama, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas and Tennessee, the mortgages on farms amount to $85 for every man, woman and child. The average annual interest amounts to $8.50 per capita or $42.50 for every voter. No productive industry can pay it and prosper. We have now shown clearly that the circulating medium must be speed- ily raised to $50 per capita. The question is how are we go ing to do it? Free coinage will give us not more than $1 per cap- ita. Reducing the tariff will not do it, because in the f...

Farmer. Just so. Yet, since the war we have beerTvoting for the nominee, on prejudice'solely. Not a single principle involved. Wall street fights Senator Hill, just as it does every man who wants to enlarge the metal baBis of note issue and redemption.— Fort Worth Gazette. Wall street does no such thing and the Gazette knows it. If Wall street had fought him he never would have been governor or senator. The "specie basis" idea suits Wall street and all the brokers and money lenders, because it puts a positive limit to the amount of money, thereby keeping the great majority of the people borrowers—slaves to the money power. Patriots do not want a metal basis for note issue, and none but venal schemers want a redeemable money. Democratic defeat has begotten democratic defeat, and the time ...

Feb 11, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. U Financial Beform. The democratic and republican partisan leaders have declared that financial reform must not be agi tated in the year 1892. Although this edict has gone forth amid the applause of all that class who are partisans only to serve the bosses yet we see before the second month in the year such an agita tation of this question as has never been seen in this country before The command has been to discuss only the tariff, and yet the tariff has been ignored for the more vi- tal question of financial reform. This shows. the sentiment of the masses and should serve as a les son to the bosses. The financial question will not down. Tha peo- ple are beginning to learn how the foul frauds have been perpetrated through legislation and nothing short of a revision of the present will satisfy them. They know how, when the finances of the country approaches nearest the danger line ard whon gold sought its hiding place, that the country's credit was sa...

In agricultural products they added a general wealth of $125,- 000,000 more than in the year 1890.

Feb. 18,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 3 r Distressing Condition of Farmers. The condition of the farming class in Georgia is a fait index of conditions existing all over the South.

I have made a special study of the political views of Alii ancemtn, investigated their faith in the ultimate success of their or- ganization, and given*particular at- tention to the financial condition of our agricultural element.

/• / *%* * SOUTHÉftN MERCURY. Feb. 18,1892. The Advanced Thinker. N. A. I). IN NATIONAL ECONOMIST. The abiding curse of all reform movements are so-called advance thinkers. They are seen almost everywhere, but are sure to be found in great numbers hovering about every legitimata effort to bet- ter economic conditions. These people entirely ignore the fact that there are certain lines of economics as clearly defined and inflexible as are the rules which govern mathematics. They do not consent to the idea that all meas- ures looking toward reform must fall within these lines or in the end be thrown over among the rubbish. Candid, intelligent reformers are content with leading public thought along such channels, and can dis- cover real advancement in the de- gree of interest usually manifested by the people in their efforts to grasp the truth as found in these fundamental principles. Again, the earnest reformer begins his work with great caution. In fact, the greatest success follows t...
