March 24,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 i METALIC MONEY. No civilized government was ever established or run on metalic money, because of its insufiiciency. The present supply, provided none has been lost by flood, fire, or otherwise since 1872, is about $6.80 per capita, which is inadequate to run even a semi-civilized govern- ment. This is clearly proven by the fact, that about ¡$3.20 of unse- cured paper money is now being floated in business channels, and yet the civilized world is groaning under the pressure of a money famine. To prevent an immediate col- lapse, about 95 per cent of the bus- iness is being transacted with clear- ing-house certificates, bank checks, drafts and other substitutes for money, behind which is nothing tangible, while but one in about fourteen hundred of the people can draw a draft that will be accepted in lieu of money, even in the com" munity in which he is person- ally known. This entails a system of usury, that ere long will transfer the wealth and earn...

10 SOUTHERN MERCURY. March Í4,1Í9Í, Railroads and Hard Times. W. B. HADEN. I have heard it said by men of ripe age and long experience that railroads are causing hard times; that they carry off all the money and are only a nuisance to poor people; that they ar9 only a medi- um for making the rich richer, and the poor poorer. As evidence of this they point to the pioneer days when all freights were hauled, and all communications carried by pri- vate conveyance. They say before the railrods came times were easy and money plentiful, and conse- quently the railroads are the cause of the trouble. Such argument will apply jiist as well to advancement and pro- gress in any other line of industry as to our present excellent system of railways. Better stop the cloth factories and return to the wheel and loom, better stop all improve" ment in farm implements, such as sulkies, cultivators, cotton and corn planters, etc.; better lay aside the sewing machine, and have the girls ruiniDg their eye...

The courthouse machine always rules every convention. There could not be a more con- temptible "polttical machine," than we have in Texas. Harry Tracy says that the State Alliance will soon meet and adopt plans that will make the democrat- ic party eat crow on the sub-treas- ury matter. Harry's mouth seems to work automatically and continuously in an output of proph- esies of sensational coming events that never gat here.—Terrell Reg- ister.

' Who will Deny the Proposition?—Concluded. domestic tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general welfare and secure • the blessiogs of liberty to ourselves and our posterity do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America." Now if it is the duty of congress to deliver letters to the people as cheaply as possible, it is equally the duty of congress to place suffi- cient money into the hand of the people at the least possible ex- pense. To deny the one is to deny the other, to admit the one is to confess the other. We cannot enjoy or perpetuate civilization without the postal sys- tem; neither can we, without suffi- cient money in cirulation, because money is to civilization what blood is to the human system. A man with no blood cannot exist, with a little blood he must soon perish, but with plenty of blood he enjoys robust health and is active and progressive. Money has a similar effect ...

"The Per Capita Delusion." Some writers who have managed to get the words "able and influ- ential" linked to their names, in the plutocratic press, are racking their brain for argument to offset the thunderbolts of logic hurled against the battlements of usury, by those demanding that the volume oí the circulating medium be speedily raised to $50 per capita. The Southern Mercury force have been untiring in their efforts to find one argument meriting a reply, in all the tons of metropolitan news- papers, and leading magazines that have passed through the Mercury office during the last eighteen months. Excepting an editorial in the Century magazine for Decem- ber last, nothing approaching an argument has been discovered. The Century speaks as follows: "The fundamental defect in the argume...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. March 31, 1892. with 1,399 out of 1,400 people, is: How muoh of my labor does it take to buy that dollar? This may be better shown by supposing that the average indebtedness of each citi- zen, estimating our population at 64,000,000, is over «468, or $2,340 to each voter. The interest on this amount at 8 per cent, is $187.20, which if paid in cotton at 12 }4 cents per pound, would require 1,497 pounds. If paid in cotton at 5 cents per pound, it would take 3,742 pounds, or two and one-half times as much. This is precisely the difference that it makes to the man who has nothing but labor or its product to sell, whether the vol- ume of money be large or small. Again, when pay day comes, and the principal of the debt must be paid, it will be two and one-half times as large as it was when contracted, because every debt must be paid in labor or its product. If the circulating medium is in- creased to $50 per capita, it will more than double present wages, and the price o...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. March 31,1892, Quiet Thought. J. E. TAYLOR. Sincerity is to speak what we think, to do as we profess, to per- form and make good what we promise, and really to be what we would seem. I belieye that, at no time in the history of the Alliance, is 1'sincerity" more necessary than it is now. We, as an order, are passing through a fiery furnace. We are on trial at the bar of pub- lic opinion. Will we come out un- scathed, and prove ourselves faith- ful to our principles? At no time is it more necessary than it is now for every member of the order to indulge in ''quiet thought." Dur- ing a general election, men's minds seem to lose their balance; party fealty takes the place of reason, as- sertion that of argument; the whole mental powers seem out of gear. Are we not, as an order, on the verge of forgetting our principles in the turmoil and strife of the coming election? Let us see. I am fully aware, that many of my brothers will disagree with me on what I am going to sa...

According to the beet authority we can get, there is an average of $542 hanging over the head of every man, woman and child in this nation in the shape of debt, and what has caused it? It is the influence that aliens and alien money has over the legislation of our country. Do you doubt it? If you do, just refer to the Hazard circular, the Buel circular, and Earnest Seyd, in demonetizing sil- ver.

SOUTHERN MÉftCUftY. March 31,1892. fjfc Th# Great Politioal Campaign Of 1802. M. W. HENRY. The politicians have commenced their customary movements on the political chess board, but great con- fusion seems to exist amongst them. No two of them agree as the proper move to make. If do other party was before the country, asking the suffrage of the people, the demo- cratic and republican parties would settle the main issues. Their whole history for the past quarter of a century, has proven them to be the conservators of the interests of the plutocracy. They are anxious to reta'n the offices and to protect their pets. How to do this is the knotty problem they are trying to solve, and that so disturbs the har- mony of their councils. Some say give the people tariff taffy, that will do, and some woüld have it very diluted, and others say that it must be pretty strong to have the desired effect. Another says, that the people demand silver, and your tariff taffy is not sufficient, we must at...
