March 17.1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 3 > r r'r- ■ ber of ticket and freight agents could be materially reduced and the rental of numerous offices sav- ed. The occupations of traffic as- sociations would be gone. Fewer engines and cars would be required, as there would be no returning of the 'empties' becaused they be- longed to a foreign road; and freight blockades would nearly dis- appear, for freight could be routed over the freest lines. Under pres- ent conditions each company clings to its own, regardless of the delays from blockades on its line. All emplo/es, engaged in keeping for- eign car accounts and in adjusting division of earnings on through business, could be discharged. These general statements indicate what might be done if economy were faithfully carried into all the details of the business. "If all the roads were embraced in a system, making of rates would be a simple operation. They could be made equal in all parts of the county, based upon distance. It would make n...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Hareh 17,1892. A Confliot Approaohing. CURTIS P. CLARK. The words of Patrick Henry are beginning to be recalled to the memory of the masses in a most vivid manner. 14It ia natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope." How patly that represents a feeling that has prevaded the masses for more tkan a score of years. They have seen rascally legislation in favor of wealthy nabobs and they have been able to see that such legislation was a di- rect blow to farming interests. They have sadly thought it better to shed no tears over spilled milk but hoj>e for better legislation in future. The N. Y. Plutocrat informed them that the party had reformed. That no more rascals could be nom- inated. Patting inplicit faith in the editorials of the Plutocrat, they each time marched to the polls and voted for relief only to find that they had elected a bigger rascal than the other fellow was. Those hopes have been eo fre- quently shattered that the people now recall other w...

' March 17.1892 SOUTHERN MERCURY. One Way. J. H. DOLMAN. Government control of railroads by commission, has received par- ticular attention from many political economists, and citizens of all trades and professions in the United States in the last decade. Many plans have been offered to oflset extor- tion, by railroad corporations, and many voters have arrived at the conclusion, that the federal govern- ment should own the railroads, and own the money that builds them; ar 1 o vn the lands that supports the roiu without the assistance of alien syndicates, or alien ownership in any regard. The people of the United States vested congress with power through the constitution, to create and emit money, and to make and control post-roads and post-offices, which power has been acknowledged by all parties, the judiciary not ex- cepted. This nation has no need of alien ownership of railroads, nor alien land syndicates, to influence congress to vote the liberties and lands of the people to cor...

The puddle mill of Phreaixville, Pa., shut down recently, and one.- half the employes of the stc el mill were either discharged or suspend- ed. Bradstreet's commercial agency reports that 90 per cent of the business failures last year was among concerns having lens than $5000 capital. The National Malleable Iron Works at Indianapolis, Ind., have been destroyed by fire. The loss is $60,000, fully insured. The company will rebuild. At Youngstown, Ohio, an Iron Company has been formed, with a capital of $100,000 for construct ing blast furnaces, m.'^iu facturing pig iron, operating rolling mills. The Chesapeake Nail Works and the puddling department of the Ctntral Iron Works, at Ilarrisburg, Pa., have shut down owing to the continu d depression in the iron trade.

Hatch 17,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. / s Castor Bean Culture. W. A. Bowen gives the follow- ing information relative to castor bean culture: The beans should not be planted until all danger of frost is passed— say from March 15 to April 10 The ground should be prepared the same as if planting corn. They should be planted in checks, about four feet apart, so as to cultivate readily and make gathering easy. Cultivate just as yau would corn, and as long as you can plow through the rows without breaking the limbs and stalks. While re- quiring more care than cotton, it is not such hard work, and is more profitable. A peck of beans will plant about five acres, even with the close planting required ior poor soil; put three or four in a hill. After the stalk attains a height of about six or eight inches each hill should be thinned to one stalk. It will be found a good plan, where a large field is planted, to have the fifth or sixth row six teet wide, so as to permit a cart to go between in gath...

í > March 17. t89¡. SOUTHERN MERCURY. V 1 i L> "INNOCENT KATE." A party over the non-de-plum of "Innocent Kate" writes the Temple Times, that, "this sub treasury scheme is the most pol- ished thing I ever heard of, and if successful it would centralize every- thing. We would have to ship our produce from 25 to 100 miles, and then get only 80 per cent, of its value. This would keep 20 per cant out of circulation. It would cast half a million dollars to build one sub-treasury. The stockmen would want to borrow money or their cattle. If the farmers would stop howling so much about hard times and go to work, and use a little common sense, they would be more prosperous." The above is the usual argument (if by a stretch of imagination it can be styled argument) used against the sub-treasury plan. What "Innocent Kate" means by "polished" is beyond our ken. Ii a plain business proposition backed up by common sense, growing out of an absolute admitted necessity for more money is "polis...

If we don't mind, the partisan leaders will side- track us on the worn out issue of tariff reform again. My candid opinion is that we had better be on the lookout. Take nobody's word, but "read, think, figure, and decide for yourself." Here we are, both North, South, East and West tied by monopoly. Shall we stay in this condition? Yes, if Ave let leaders and wire- pullers gull in on t-a-r-i-f-f again. But I hope Ave will have the man- hood to stand them off. If you have not sufficient manhood to tell the office-seeker of the . evils that are enslaving us, jrour Avife ought to take a stick to you. If a man comes to you and asks you for your vote, ask him if lie favors the Al- liance demands. If he says "yes" don't vote for him, unless he lias our "principles."

jf March 17,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 11 PBESS COMMENTS. Why not, when the voter begins his suffrage life, compel him to vote for the nominee from that time to the grave? By this method the trap would not have to be set so otten—McKinney Democrat. Presumably the reason why this method has not been adopted is, that it has escaped the at- tention of the "machine bosses." Political views that will notbrar being made known are generally not of the best kind. The people should know their wants and then not hesitate to make them known —San Saba News. That is exactly the position of the Sub-Treasury advocates. They know what they want, have said so; and, will get there. The idea of absolute independ- ence may be very cheering, but it is only an iridescent dream.—San Francisco Chronicle. Nothing more than a dream! Riches, while they may add some- what to a man's independence, do not absolve him from that state of inter-dependence that the whole human familv is heir to. Harry Tracy's support o...

The other principle upon which reliance has been placed for the solution of the problem of trans- portation is found in those laws which aim to secure and maintain fair rates. Such laws embrace three separate counts: first, that rates themselves should be just, the nature of the service being taken into consideration; second, that rates should be the same for all, with no invidious discrimination; and third, that rates should not be subject to frequent and arbitrary changes. The doctrine that Gov- ernment should enforce a just price is not new. "It has the sanction of Roman law, of medieval custom, and of common law. In countries where the common law prevails," said the late Chief Justice Wai...

Besides the States already nam- ed, Indiana, Arkansas, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania have commis- sions especially establisned for the assessment of railway taxes, and the State of Pennsylvania has made an ample provision for the collection of rail-way statistics as any state having a commission. It seems proper in showing what government is doing to secure jus- tice from railways to their patrons, to emphasize the importance of commissions, since this is the part of the subject usually overlooked.

It makes a great differ- ence in the solution of this question which of these parties is both will- ing an and able to accord the need- ed legisation. Both willingness and ability must combine to give relief from either party. Our people are now steering be- tween Scylla on the one side and Charybdis on the other, touching independent political action. If the masses of the Alliance people in their choice on this point should make a mistake and see their or- ganization mutilated and despoiled —all that they had acquired up to the present lost, and their future hopes dashed to the ground—they will have themselves and their ad- visers to blame....

This is right and proper; but no close, im- partial observer will claim that either of the two great political parties in this country is more than a mere shadow of its former great- ness—an organization whose whole machinery is directed towards methods of success, and whose very existance depends on the spoils system. It is not necessary to enter into an inquiry as to the causes of this, or to theorize on the tendency to organic disintegration. The fact stares us in the face that we have two great contending elements in this country, called political par- ties, either of which, within itself, is unable to agree upon any single issue which it presents for public consideration, and that only differ with each other as to what particu- lar articles shall be taxed a few cents more than others.

For many years, both North and South have been "boss" ridden, have done the bidding of the "ma- chine.'' Many who declare them- selves democrats or republicans can not give an intelligent reason why. They vote the ticket be- cause of association, prompted mainly by prejudice, and mistaken fealty to the Southland or the Union. This is as applicable to the republican partisan north, as to our democrat partisan south. Both are blinded by prejudice. Both have failed to give the matter honest thought. Like the average Southern man, both allow pome one else to do their thinking. The people have not all learned that there is no difference between the republican machine "bosses," and the democratic machine "bosses." They have not learned that they mean the same results; that there is absolutely very little difference in their utterances. One...
