TEXAS, THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 1892, WHOLE 10. 520. 15 t r The Money Question. HON. JOHN DAVIS, IN ARENA. Money, strictly speaking, is not a material thing. It is a function created by law; and by law, this function may be attached to any proper material. It is an office or function, as is the office of sheriff. A man, naturally, is not a sheriff or other public officer; but when the office or legal function has been attached to the man, he is then a public officer, and as such can do many things and perform many acts which he could not do or per- form as a mere man. When the money function has been legally attached to a material thing, then that material thing becomes tangi- ble money. In rude societies the money function may grow up by custom, and by common consent it becomes attached to a materia thing. In this way, cattle, copper, go...

The second man, B, owes C forty dollars. He hands to C a ten dollar check, received from A, and his own personal check for thirty dollars. And so the pay- ment continues until all are paid with these checks of conditional payment. Then comes cancelation and the payment of balances. In practice it is found that checks do not balance and cancel each other in full, as men do not owe each other the some amounts, but that there must be used in every clear- ing house some money of final pay- ment; that is money, or general checks on society at large, issued by the sovereign government or socity in the concrete, which all are willing to accept as money of final payment. By the records of clearing house business for long periods, it is found that, on the average, the amount of money of final payment necessary to settle ba...

April 14,1992. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 3 ik er legislation. Every honest, true- hearted citizen knows that "Enter- nal vigilence is the price of liberty" and we earnestly declare that the hour has struck when that vigi- lence must be redoubled. Unwor- thy the priceless heritage of free- dom is every American who will not bare his bosom nor lift his hand in defense of the imperiled liber- ties of his country. Fit ouly for a serf is every one who will not pledge his most earnest efforts and sacred honor to rid his coun- try once and forever of the pollut- ing presence of privileged classes whose occupation is robbery, whose tools are bribery, corruption and fraud, whose existence debauches the people and whose power threat ens the very existence of our in- stitutions.)

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. April 14,1892. ▲ Lady's Appeal. MRS. S. A. BROWN. It has been nearly three years since I left Dallas county, where I was a member of the Alliance at Baile's school house. We have no Alliance out here, would be glad if we had an organization. We need a lecturer here and an organizer, as the people should be educated to stand as one man, with one voice, one determination and one mind; as division means confusion. Otherwise you will never be able to accomplish the task before you. I am only a woman, but love the cause that our fathers, husbands and brothers are now struggling for, the privileges God intended us to enjoy—equal rights before the law. Hired "statesmen," bosses, kings, and all the combines are trying to wreuch our possessions, little by little, through the laws from us. Brothers of the Alliance, you must be ready to meet the foe next November at the ballot box—to all vote as one man. Your old lead- ers will never listen to your de- mands, but work in th...

V Api i! 14,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. >- Who Shall It Be? w. p. pillans, M. d. Having read and reread the full text of Gen. H. E. McCulloch'spo- litcal views, both state and national, in response to a call of the people of different parts of Texas, to be- come a candidate for the office of governor; I irresistably appeal to every reform voter of the state to give his views due consideration, as they are in full accord with our demands, and go further than they do in the blessedness of political reformation. Let me insist on you finding and keeping the issue of the Southern Mercury of March 3rd, in which you will find his po- sition; and do as I have done. Read and reread it, and put it away as a safe weapon with which to fight in his behalf, should he an- nounce as a candidate for the guber- natorial chair. Personally, I know nothing about Gen. McCulloch, and noth- ing otherwise, except I have read his articles in the Southern Mer- cury; but, if he is a man of good principles and e...

> April 14,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 K/ NOW AND THEN. The democratic party is not to- day, what it "used to be." From 1800 to 1850 its platform bristled with clear cut principles, setting forth, in plain English that the democratic party believec in a government of the people, by the people and for the people The leaders then were not afraic of the people. The leaders reliec upon the people implicitly for the perpetuation of these principles Their speakers enunciated this idea. Their political organs taught and defended this doc trine. Their leaders and pa- pers strove to educate the peo- ple in the true science of economic government. They discussed prin- ciples, not men. They preached patriotism, not sectionalism; econ- omy, not extravagance. So long as the leaders adhered to a policy founded upon these principles the democratic party secured justice, peace, prosperity and freedom to all. But designing men ac- quired contiol of the party machin ery, and began to use it to eleva...
