Feb. 18.1892, SOUTHERN MERCURY. r ROTTENNESS IN THE ME- TROPOLIS. Iu this "land of the free and the home of the brave," we bow our head in shame at the continued disgrace and degradation perpetra- ted by the so-called leaders in the chief city of the nation. The fol- lowing caustic criticism is from a late issue of Advanced Thought: "To prove the disregard tor de- cency of New York Democracy, as mixed, stirred, baked and set up in official windows by Tammany, and that those who serve the god of respectability,, education, pro- gress and humanity cannot serve dives and dive keepers, we ask at- tention to this fact. The number of arrests made in the city of New York during the year 1891 equalled one for every seventeen inhabitants. This em- braces all grades of arrests from plain drunks to drunks embellished with fraud, forgery, burglary, de- falcations, murders, etc. From the Water street hag, who was once the feted mistress of a fatted son or father within the circle of the 400, to ...

i? K> f 6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Feb. 18,1892. Hie Views. john oliver. In reviewing the columns of the Southern Mercury, I note this paragraph: "Madam rumor says, Texas con- gressmen are covertly offering a large reward for any instrument that is guaranteed to break the back of the Farmer's Alliance sub- treasury plan." Well, if they will pass laws giv- ing the people more money, less interest, equal legislation, less taxes, more democracy, and bet- ter democracy, put an end toy Eng- lish dictation, and listen to the people who live here and pay the taxes, they will have done some- thing in that direction—some good at least. I notice also that some of the democratic papers have stat- ed editorially that senator Peffer had introduced a bill to increase the pensions. This is a mistake. The bill he has introduced is a service pension bill, and instead of increasing the cost for pensions to the government, it will give every man who was in actual service a reasonable pension, and equalize...

> Feb. 18.1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 a. ■v* ! / A The annual net income of the Louisiana Lottery was 3,343,000 up to the passage of the law for- bidding the company the use of the United States mails. Since that time the income has dwindled to a comparatively small amount, in consequence of the extravagant ex- penditures they have made in light- ing their way through the courts, and political campaigns. They have concluded to go out of business when the present charter expires, 1894. Congress has given 101,442,385 acres of land to railways. This was the work of republicans. The legislatures of Texas has given 46,- 578,900 acres to railways, irriga- tion, river and other improvement companies. This was the work of democrats. The only reason why Texas mugwump democrats did not grant more lands to corpora- tions, is that the land gave out. These are facts, and in face of the more serious fact that there are less than eight land owners in ev- ery lOO in the United States, and in Texas...

Beware of the prominent reform- er who does not want unity of the industrial forces.—Spokane World. Watch him! He is either an ig- noramus or a villain. In either event we do not need him. Let the money power have such men; they will vote with them anyhow. The very first bill that Senator Perkins, of Kansas, introduced was one to aid a claim in which he is personally interested as a claim agent. That is the kind of a sen- atorial hairpin Perkins is.—Chica- go Express. He is a true republican partisan and therefore follows up republic- an precedent. The cry of "over production" sounds disagreeable to the hard working citizen who is hungry and thinly clad.—McKinney Demo- crat. Not only "disagreeable" but false. As long as there are per- sons hungry or in need of clothing there should be no such ...

Feb. 18,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 11 r Farmer Boys, Study! WILLIAM B. HAYDEN. "Educate! educate!! educate!!! for in the education of the com- mon people lies the safety of any nation," said Patrick Henry. If one takes the trouble to inves- tigate he will find the greater part of the ignorant people among those who live by manual labor. The ignorant man or woman is forever debarred from all the learned professions, and conse- quently casts his or her lot with honest labor, hoping to find a safe retreat from the need of "book learnin'and a place where an honest living can be made. This is where the fatal mistake has been made, and this may truthfully be < said to be the causes of the condi- tions of labor to-day. The indifference with which some farmers treat this very im- portant duty of educating their children is almost inexcusable; the writer of this once heard an honest old farmer who had two sons grow- ing up, say: "The money power is on top, has always been there and is goin' ...

We had just as well call a spade a spade, and not a Jlat, oblong, metallic ag- ricultural implement with a curved handle. When you say the farmers of this country, in their demands, want "something for nothing," you lie, you villains, and you know it. The whole measly crowd of you are a pack of ignoramuses, or a set of flying sycophants doing the bid- ding of your plutocratic masters. ¿For years the farmers of this coun- try have given more in return for what they got than any other class.

Feb. 25, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. Message. [Continued from 1st page.] it is necessary to enact laws allow- ing no man, either alien or native, to hold any more land than he can use himself. It can make no dif- ference to the poor tenant slave, whether the major part of his toil is legally stolen by an alien or a native land pirate. If anything is to be done with the alien land law, let the sense of it be Texas lands for Texas citizens, ana only in small quantities to individuals or families, and they be required to live on, and cultivate it. The remedy for the railroad commission law is government ownership, and that is a matter with which con- gress alone should deal. There are many other evils ex- isting to which I could call your attention, but this, with what our servant, the governor, may suggest will be quite enough for a call ses- sion. For the present I will de- sist, and sign my name, which is one of the seals of sovereignty. Attest: James Armstrong. Citizen of Texas. Signs ...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Feb. 25.1892. Food For Befleotion. WARD RJSLEY. From the declaration of purposes of the Farmers Alliance, I take it that the highest aims of the organi- zation is educational, and especially do I deem this to be -true as re- gards the correct principles of po- litical economy. In a government like ours where the people are sovereign, there can be nothing of more importance than the intelli- gence of the people, and their thor- ough understanding of the qnes- tions with which, as sovereigns, they have to deal; for upon such intelligence the existe,nre and sta- bility of all free government must depend. With these high and laudable aims in view, the Alliance had scercely effected its organiza- tion, and started on its mission of education, when the so-called great statesmen and great papers (lead- ers in the fight on both sides for party success and public plunder), began to first scold, then pet, then coax, and then denounce this new educational institution, for i...

T M. 25,1692. SOUTHERN MERCURY. / The Allianoe and Political Parties. That there is a tremendous un- dercunent in public sentiment in North Carolina, and throughout the south in faior ot independent po- litical action, as the only hope for that relief, which the people feel they must have, no intelligent or observant man will deny. No one will now deny that it is strongly probable that a national independ- ent ticket will be put in the field this year, and that its presidential electors will be voted for in all the states. Any one at all conversant with public sentiment in North Carolina knows that there is a strong feeling among her people in favor of the people's party. It is not our purpos to discuss now, the wisdom or justice of this sentiment, nor the various reasons assigned for its existence. But we realize the fact and the significance of its existence. It is here in stronger volume and force than its oppon- ents will admit, or even than its friends are aware of. It only nee...

Feb. 25,1892. SÓUtHEftb MÉRCUtiY. d Heve the present distress, or elect a congress this fall who will do so. This learned financial Ajax again announces that "no government can make an inferior form of money} equal in value to a superior form like gold, by enacting a law decree- ing that it shall be so." He either foes not know that 1 a-w makes money, and not intrinsic value, or is afraid to say as much. 44Noth- ing is clearer, than, that cheap money means high prices, and dear money means low prices," says the Century. Liw fixes the value o money. It is the scarcity of money that makes low prices, and an abundance of money makes high prices. Scarcity of money pro- duces low wages, low prices for all the products of labor, but does not always lower the prices of manu- factured articles. For illustration: money is very scarce now, wages low, thousands of men idle, cotton from 4*4 to 6yi cents per pound and calico 0 cents per yard. In another paragraph he admits that, the 44man who is...
