OfB. What Our Leaders Said at St. Louis. While it is impossible for us to give a complete account in detail of all that was done aud said at the great gathering of organized labor, in St. Louis, in Feb uary, we be- lieve that it will be interesting to many of our readers to gi ve a brief* synopsis of addresses made on the occasion by some of our leading men. The first address was made by Ben Terrell, of Texas, substan- tially as follows: •1 Gentlemen—You are here by the authority of the several indus- trial organizations which you have the honor to represent, and for the purpose of conferring together without prejudice of any kind, to the end that you may agree upon such a platform of principles, (for the government of our loved and common country) as will secure equal justice to all, an...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. March 10,1892. dacity he began a flood of ridicule by asking: 4'In this august gathering, who is here who will speak ot the old political parties? Why, my friends, their gatherings, soon to assemble in Chicago and Minneap- olis will be conglomerated aggrega- tions of unprincipled politicians, met to divide the plunder of the republic. There is a sublime meaning to this gathering. All the past has prepared the way for it. From the insurrection of the slaves who seized the rocky island, from the revolt of the gladiators under Spartacus, from the old German peasant war so ruthlessly trampled out, from the French revolution, from the Cromwellian outbreak, from the insurrection of Watt Ty- ler and Jack Cade, from the birth of the American republic in the collision of 1776 to this time, events led up to the doors of this chamber. This is not the culmination of all the suffering and ignorance of the pafrt; this the magnificent efllores- cjnce and flowering out of th« con-...

X March 10,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY, K The Cordage Trust and the Na- tional Union. Those of the National Reform Press association who attended the session held on the day pro- ceeding the Labor Conference, in St. Louis, will lemember the acrimony and bitterness exhibited by certain members of the associa- tion in the discussion of a resolution bearing cn the National Union company. To 4'a looker on in Vienna,*" there was plainly visible the hidden hand of an opposing Trust, the workings of a deep laid scheme from au other direc- tion, manipulated by jaundiced minds and warped convictions of justice. The following from the last issue of Plain Talk is worthy of consideration by the entire brotherhood. "There is a great deal being said these days regarding the National Union company and its supposed connection with the Cordage com- pany or trust and the relation of the two concerns to the Farmers' Alliance and Alliance leaders. It is vehemently asserted that the Cor- dage company is a tr...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. March 10,1892. *c I K K Br Watts and Beagan. Judge Reagan's friends in at- tempting to deny that he ever was a railroad attorney, appear to be getting that gentleman in a boggy place. Judge A. T. Watts,'now a citizen of Dallas, makes the follow- ing statement in the Dallas Morn- ing News of March 4th: uIn 1873 I was a member of the lower house of the Texas legislat- ure. The previous house in 1871 had made a grant to the Texas and Pacific railway of $10,000 per mile in bonds for 600 miles, bearing 10 per cent interest and running thir- ty years. They had made to the International and Great Northern the same kind of a grarjt. In the thirteenth legislature Judge George W. Smith, Gov John Ireland and myself were appointed a special committee to compromise and set- tle the matter with the Texas and Pacific. Subsequently Hon, John Henry Brown, Judge Booty and Mr. Adriance were added to the committee. We succeeded in settling with tho Texas and Pacific by giv- ing them t...

Jr March 10, 1892 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Principle or Party—WhichP WILLIAM B. HADEN. We are again in the midst of a spirited political campaign. The nation is swaying back and forth like the sea shaken by a gale, under the weight of two contend- ing factions, each doing its utmost to get into power at the coming election. The democratic and republican par- ties are like two gigantic men-of- war discharging their heaviest vol- leys at each other. The leaders of both parties are pursuing the same course that has been pursued since the civil war, viz: appealing to the predjudice of the people. South- ern democrats declare that all cor- rupt legislation is republican work. Every intelligent man knows that laws are made by congress and not by the president. True, he has veto power, but the majority in congress generally rules. Are the democrats not pretty well repre- sented in both houses of congress? If they are powerless now what more could they do with a demo- cratic president? The truth i...

A nice way to keep jelly from molding is to cover it with a layer of powdered sugar, then seal as usual. Whites of eggs may be beaten to a stiff froth by an open «window when it would be impossible in a steamy kitchen. The heart disease that makes people afraid to walk to church on a hot day isn't in the valve but the grain of the heart. The devil never whips a boy to make him bad; but he sometimes puts it into the heads of well-mean- ing people to do it. To remove grass-stains, rub thoroughly with molasses, then rinse in clear water; repeat this process till the stain disappears. Powdered flint glass ground to an impalpab e powder and mixed with the white of an egg, makes one of the strongest cements known.

Match 10, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. S7 Who Were The Calamity Howlers? J. H. DOLMAN. Noah, and all the prophets were calamity howlers. Did the calam- ity come? I^^ean no disrespect when I say Christ was a calamity howler, and foretold the destruction of Jerusalem, and the destruction of the Jewish government. Did that come? What was the cause of all the calamity foretold by those calamity howlers? Sacred and profane history agree, that the cause of all the calamity, was a just retribution upon that nation for the acts of oppression upon the people by wicked, tyran- ical rulers, who robbed the masses of the products of their labor, and returned nothing to the laborer for his services. Who are the calamity howlers of the 19th century? The oppressed laborers; laborers of all nations are howling calamity—the hungry, the nak^d, the homeless, and the vic- tims of soulless corporations. City corporations, like Babylon, Jerusalem, London, New York, Chicago, and many other corpora- tions, who r...

The interest of the farmer in just and conservative management of railways are not at all different in kind from that' of every other well meaning citizen; aid the law? required by him to render those interests secure, are of the same sort as are required by any class of men who rely for a livelihood unon the production of articles for distant markets.

"spv. 1 y" hi 12 SOUTHERN MERCURY. March 17.1892. they set before themselves the same problem. The first step actually taken to- ward the control of railways in this country was to plaoe beyond ques- tion the right of government to a voioe in the management of rail- way affairs, and this a step for which the farmers of Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin are directly respon- sible. The "Granger Laws," oí of about 1870, which were contest- ed by the railways, but upheld by the courts, placed beyond contro- versy the fact that railways are comon carriers in the extreme in- terpretation of the phrase, and, as such, are amenable to direct legis- lative control. This was an im- portant point gained, since it ren- dered unnecessary further discus- sion as to the right of public con- trol. It did not, however, touch directly the railway problem which pertains to the most practic- al and effective methods of exer- cising public control over carriers among a democratic people. If we consider the la...
