April 21, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. course, made it practically impos- sible to limit the volume in circu- lation; and as already stated, an unlimited money is a worthless money. Money is valuable in pro- portion to limitation. If it is pos- sible, the counterfeiters will inflate the money to the point of worth - lessness, as in the case of our con- tinental currency and the French assignats. In the North there were two sorts of paper money. The first sixty millions were re- ceivable in the revenues of the government the same as coin, and legal tender for all debts. That money was preferred to coin dur- ing the war, and as long as it circu- lated. Another class of paper money issued during the war, known as greenbacks, was not re- ceivable for duties or imports nor for interest on the public debt. It was like any other useful machine with a number of important bolts left ont. It went below par as compared with coin, or as compared with paper without these legal dis- abilities. It some...

f April 21, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. I w J I I ' l« I' CAUSE OF THE INDEPENDENT POLITICAL MOVEMENT. The Hoggite8 are making them- selves ridiculous, by asserting that "the Independent political move- ment in Texas, is in the interest of the Hon. George Clark, and that the leaders finding that they could not march the Alliance vote into the Clark camp, have done the next best thing they could, by in- augurating the Independent move- ment." Those who are familiar with the situation, understand this statement to be the essence of dem- agogy born of despair. Mr. Hogg's waning popularity is the truit of his own deliberate actions. The campaign of two years ago has proven a blessing in disguise to the people. In 1890, for the first time in twenty odd years, the boys from the "forks oí the creek" took a leading hand in state politics. For years they had been demanding a railroad com- mission and an alien land law, but under one pretext or another they had been sidetracked by the legis- latu...

6 SOUTHERN X£BCURY. April 21, 1892. I 1 1 "In It To Stay!' Austin, April 13, 1892. Editor Southern Mercury: From the time the Dallas News reached here yesterday, and the call for the Independent political action was promulgated, its effects was visible in the expression of the countenances of the leadin politicians here. Some looke t'houghtful, some looked sad, while others seemed to enjoy it as a huge joke. Some have asked me, "Was you really in that state mass meet ing of 14, at Dallas, that got up and published that call, or did those fellows use your name for political effect?" Mr. Editor, you have often heard of indignation meetings, and from the fun made of the call of our committee of conference, you may expect to hear of meetings of "ridicule" being held by the fun- makers, who oppose our reform movement; or it will be handled in that way by their speakers. It is true that there were but few of us there, but when the in- dependent patriotic people of this grand state turn ou...

:*r April 21, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 IN l> Í 1 J THE SITUATION IN TEXAS. The Hogg as well as the Clark campaign managers have held their meetings, the one at Austin, the other at Waco. The Clark men declare in favor of an effective, elective railroad commission, but are silent on alien ownership of land. The Hogg managers declare in favor of an effective appointive railway commission, and are silent also on the alien ownership of land. Hence, the only question at issue between Hogg and Clark, is wheth- er the railway commissioners shall be elected by the people or ap- pointed by the governor. There has suddenly appeared in the political arena another party, at present known as Independents, and they have a platform also which reads: "We favor reform in all depart- ments in our state government, and demand that expenses be re- duced to the lowest point compat- ible with efficient administration. "We favor a railway commis- sion that will insure equal and ex- act justice to the ...

ér April 21, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 15 y INDUSTRIAL INNINGS. Iron and steel makers are re- stricting. Coal producers are watching market requirements. Machinery makers are daily gaining in activity. Manufacturing establishments generally are quite busy. The Illinois Central railroad has just ordered forty new locomo- tives. Small machines in 275 tailoring shops in Rochester are run by electricity. Railroad earnings continue fair, but not large. The change is in the right direction. An eight hour bill will proba- bly pass the British parliament and will affect 531,000 men. The blast furnace workers of eastern Ohio and of Alabama have been reduced ten per cent. Engines to be worked by wind are to be made in Michigan and shipped to Africa and Asia. Jobbing interests along the At- lantic coast recognize the danger of overdoing in trade and are very careful. Collections are almost every- where slow and difficult, despite statements to the contrary in finan- cial journals. Silver continu...

2 SOUTHERN MERCURY. April 28,1892; give out, I have the honor to be, your obedient servant, J. S. Hogg. It will be remembered by all who participated in the state cam- paign of 1890, that Gov. Hogg's Eusk speech was the key-note of that campaign. It had been care- fully prepared by him, in the pri- vacy of his office, and was pub- lished in full. Those who opposed the commission amendment so ac- cepted it, while those who favored the commission defended it throughout the campaign. None of Mr. Hogg's other speeches were printed in full, only extracts were published, and as nearly every daily paper in the state opposed Mr. Hogg and the commission, the extracts published were considered by his friends as garbled, and in the interest of the anti-commission forces, consequently were ignored by Hogg supporters. This point being settled, it remains to ascer- tain what is the meaning of the following language used in this Rusk speech: % "Three competent, honest men, appointed by the power t...

April 28, 1892. " SOUTHERN MERCURY. CLEAR THE DECK FOB AC- TION. After much maneuvering and delay, the time has come for ag- gressive decided action. Now is the opportune moment for deter- mined action op the part of the people with reference to political affairs in this country. The purposes for which the democratic and republican parties were formed have been served. Their leaders have failed to com- prehend or represent the pressing demands of the day. They con- sume all their time struggling for place and plunder, and are utterly blind to the needs of their constit- uency. The spirit of partisanship has become so bold that flagrant wrongs are unblushingly perpetrated, and schemes of the vilest character are resorted to, to obtain and «main- tain places of power and profit. Corrupt legislation, state and na- tional, blurs and besmirches al- most every page of our statute books, while the sacredness of the ballot—that bulwark of free gov- ernment—is a thing of the past. Many good ...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. April 28, 1892. IS IT NOT A PACT? The democratic press, so-called, of the country is teeming with such expressions as these: "Stick to the grand old party, the only one of honest convictions." " The democratic party has the honest ring of convictions of right and principle on its side that should challenge the support of every true patriot." "Oh, consistency, thou art a jewel of exquisite beauty," and as rare among politi- cians as diamonds among the peas- antry ! The democratic party is now- dominated by the Northeast, whose slightest nod becomes thewill of the party. A party of principle and honest convictions, indeed! As a party of reform you uphold the present national banking sys- tem. As believers in a bi-metalic standard, you maintain the gold- bug theory of republicanism! As reformers of the tariff, your policy has been in favor of classes and against the masses ! As the repre- sentatives of a party of the people you maintain the whisky traffic at the expen...

April 28, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. i EL/ J IT IS ▲ FACT! If our friends who desire to pur- chase anything will visit or writ® to those who advertise in the Southern Mercury, they will find it to their interest. The Mer- bury always refuses to accept any advertisement unless their honesty and reliability is proven to our satisfaction. In writing or calling always say, "I saw your advertise- ment in the Southern Mercury." We will thank our friends and pat- rons to promptly report to us any crookedness on the part of adver- tisers. By complying you will materially aid in the reform move- ment. We copy the following from the Meadville (Pa.) Farmer, to show our readers that this movement for reform is universal: "All who are opposed to cor- ruption and fraud in political cir- cles should not fail to attend the People's Primaries on May 7. The old parties have long been con- trolled by rings and cliques, and an honest man has no show in them. The only way out, is for the people to let the ...
