WHOLE 10. 51 I' ¥ Él /S A Startling Fioture. It seems esoteric and enigma- tical to many who are not Alliance- men, why the Alliance, though po- litical in its teachings, refuse to align itself on the partisan issues continually presenting themselves for our considerations. The utterances of the illustrious Washington, found in his "Politi- cal Legacies," furnishes the rea- son. Said he: 1 'I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the state, with particular reference to the founding of them on geographical discriminations. Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn man- ner against the baneful effects of the spirit of the party generally. This spirit unfortunately, is in- seperable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the hum...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. April 7,1892. A. Word of Warning. The possibility of my being called into the field as a candidate for governor by the reform element of the state does not, in my estima- tion, debar me from sounding notes of warning or expressing my senti- ments on such subjects as involve the interests of all of our people; but does suggest to mc the proprie- ty of treating the gentlemen whom I may oppose with much more courtesy personally than I might otherwise do. Therefore, whatev- er I may say about them must be understood to refer to their public acts and expressed views and not to them personally. We have the acts of the administratiou of the present incumbent before us, and as we are always justified to judge, more or less, of the future by the past, the people ought to be able to judge whether or not it will suit them to continue it two years lon- ger. On the other hand we have the public speeches of another prominent candidate published in the newspapers, and as they are...

April 7,1892. 8QUTHERN MERCURY. 3 r t ) :) I Gontinmed from last week. The Great Political Campaign of 1892. m. w. henry. In this is clearly indicated where- in lies the danger of the overthrow of the present anti-republican, aris- tocratic, English system of finance, which is absorbing the very life blood of the nation—the money. That great organ, the New York Tribune told its friends that some- thing must be done to quiet agita- t oq or all would be lost. How? The people would demand and obtain "absolute money—full legal tender, not promises to pay anything, but based on the faith and resouces of the nation." The article shows clearly that the money power knows full well that if the people come to understand fully the great advantage to them of a national legal tender currency eve a better thin the national bank note, they would rise almost enmasse and rid the the country of the banks and the whole fallacious system on which they rest. The national bank money monopoly, is the grea...

From whatlhave already said it will be seen that we have deter- mined, in a general way, the con- ditions of many Texas soils with regard to the three most essential ingredients. In addition to this our^'work must go further. We must show in what manner the lack of any of these three ingredients, either nów or later, can be best and most economically supplied by the use of such natural fertilizers as ex- ist within the areas themselves, or near enough to render them ac- cessible. This has had special at- tention, and my circular in regard to the use of greensand marls, was issued for the purpose of calling attention to them, and to secure their use on certain of the sandy soils in their vicinity, which stood in need of just such fertilizing ma- terials as they contained. Wher- ever they have been given a proper trial, the benefits which have arisen from their use is very marked. As it is ...

April 7. 1892 SOUTHERN MERCURY. > !i. I Home Work For Patriotio Women.' MRS. M. M. CLARDY. To train your son to wise citizen- ship, and to prepare your daughter to be an intelligent and sympathetic companion for a voter, is your im- perative duty. As I finish the above sentence, I hear some antiq- uated parrot scream out, "What will become of the cooking, the sewing, the housekeeping and the laundry work?" I ask that ante- quated parrot to answer as to what has become of the cooking, sewing and other domestic work under the present condition of mothers, igno- rant of politics? As to the cooking—while cotton and wheat bring less than the cost of raising them—why, the cooking is very simple; hominy, corn bread bacon, occasionally, which has been raised on the mast, makes the meals. Chickens, eggs and butter are saved to buy medicine or coffee for Sunday morning break- fast. When the mother takes her babe to the field and lays it down in a fence corner, while she hoes and her eldest...

April 7,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 3 í THEY "CRAWFISHED." The state democratic 1 'machine committee met in Dallas to-day one week ago. Few times, if ever in the history of such bodies was the demand for diplomacy more supreme. They met with fear anc trembling, oiving to the many anc unpardonable blunders of the Chairman, Mr. N. W. Finley The crisis was upon them. Mr Finley had, in effect, ruled that < 'any man who believed in the cor rectnees and wisdom of the sub treasury plan, could not take part in the councils of the democratic party," It was plainly the duty of the committee to affirm or dis Bent from the ruling. In this con nection, however, the Mercury is not disappointed. Their silence their backdown, their "crawfish,' is in keeping with the machine methods; anything to save the party. Indeed, their "crow-eat ing" capacity was so great, that they failed and refused to speak out on the subject and say who is a democrat. Maybe they do not exactly know what it takes to con stit...

Platform Adopted by the Confedera- ted Industrial Organizations at St. Louis, Mo., Feb. 22-24, 1392, The Mercury, in common with other papers, made a mistake in publishing the St. Louis, demands. The correct, verbatim document, as it came from the hands of the com- mittee on platform, is as follows: PREAMBLE. This, the first great labor conference of the United states and of the world, representing all divisions of urban and rural organized industry, assembled in national congress, invoking upon its action the blessing and protection of Al- mighty God, puts forth, to ana for the produc- ers of the nation, this declaration of union and independence. The conditions which surround us best justi- fy our oo-operation. We meet in the midst of a nation brought to the verge of moral, political and material rain.

When we have acquired euffi- cint wisdom by experience to as- sort our treasuries, gathered along the journey of life, and to lay aside the worthless, our load will be light, and our progress more easy and rapid. A treasure for which we have no need, and of which we can make no use, is a burden and a hindrance. Lies are mainly counterfeits ot truths. Even knowledge and wis- dom are often antipod«-s. Indulging little sugarcoated- lies may bs amusing, but the ripe fruit is jealousy and bitterness Business lies have greatly be- come the capital investigated in the average enterprises of the day. We have bought counter- feit goods, food and drinks, un- til we scarcely expect, or look for the truly genuine. In truth we find laws to be mainly ingenious lies dissembling truth and mocking justice. Court rulings secured by illegal or im moral means annul or supercede our plainest statutes.

^7 i \Apnl 7, 18)2 . SOUTHERN MERCURY. 3 > i Can't You See? A. W. WARREN. It is an evident fact that the so called democratic congress will not pass a silver bill at this session for fear that they would fail to car ry two or three Eastern states next fall. Just so long as the South anc West continue to be bossed by East- ern political sharks, just so long we will have democracy that Thomas Jefferson knew nothing about. Can't you see that the Wall street millionaires have been controlling the democratic leaders forcing them to do their bidding as completely as they ever have republican leaders. Is there any difference in democratic anc republican leaders on the financia! policy. The cry of some of our two-bit politicians that if free and unlimit- ed coinage of silver was authorized by law it would decrease the tircu lating medium, as gold would dis- appear, be sent to England to pay interest on our bonds, when any man who has studied the question, knows that the gold mu&tgoto...
