i SOüTttEfcN tEEGtJttt. May 12,1892. Why "Keep in the Middle of the BoadP" Those who know our esteemed Bro. Terrence Y. Powderly, the leading reformer in the ranks of the Knights of Labor, will appre- ciate the following reasons why reformers everywhere should and do "keep in the middle of the road." In an article from his pen in a recent number of the Knights of Labor Journal he says: "With his eyes on the loom, forge and shovel, the city workman has for years been growing near- sighted. It is dangerous for him to walk home on the sidewalks which have grown narrow since he became so busy. He should take to the middle of the road. The farmer, with his feet in the furrow and his eyes on the plow, has for- gotten to read of things outside of the field, and when he takes a day off he finds strangers lining the sidewalks whom he has never even heard of before. He has devoted so much time to the field that he knows but little of the road. He must take to the middle of the road. Both city...

SPWv h' t V- > SOUTHERN MEKCURV. May 12,1892. FREE WOOL. Do you know what free wool means? Do you know who it fa- vors ? Do you know that the recent act of congress, placing wool on the free list, is a discrimi- nation against the wool growers of this country, and in favor of the wool growers of Australia and the manufacturers of this country ? These are the facts ! This is De- mocracy of the modern anti-free coinage kind. Instead of protect- ing our wool growers, they have taken the duty off of wool, and placed our wool growers at the mercy ot the Australian wool grower. There is more wool sheared from the tail of an Aus- tralian sheep than from the whole body of an American sheep. It costs nothing to bring it to this country, as it comes as ballast, and when unloaded on the Pacfic coast the railroads haul it to the Atlantic seaboard for one cent per pound, so that the Australian sheep man can not only compete with our wool growers, but can actually produce and supply the manufa...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. May 12, 1892. Does This Fit YouP Head these words of the Refor- mer of St. Louis, and see if they apply to you. The language is plain and pointed, but it describes a class of our civilization, who are quite common now: "There is a certain class of men we would like to talk to. We beg pardon of those we can rightly call men; we mean there is a cer- tain class of brings who call them- selves men we would like to talk to. They are those whom a few flattering words, a smile or a glass of whiskey from a political boss, ñlls their little souls so full of glory and enthusiasm that they will go all through a campaign, yelling, hurrahing and throwing up their hats like a set of Coman che Indians.* We have no word of condemnation for these. They are the blind being led by the blind. They do all their thinking with their stomachs and are only susceptible through their passions. The politiciais know this and hence appeal to their stomachs and tfreir passions. Taeir souls never...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Hay 12, 1892. The Great Plain People. There are a lot of silly papers which in their desire to pander to what they think is popular preju- dice, are eternally referring to the agricultural classes as "the great plain people." The phrase, and the disposition to use it, shows a slavish recognition of the rich, and of aristocracy as people who are above the masses. We do not think that there is a man or woman in this country, however'elegant may be their surroundings or how- ever elevated their birth, who is above the men and women into whose homes this journal goes weekly. The nobility of this re- public is to be found among those whom these sycophantic journals call the plain people. It is the men and women on our farms and in our workshops and factories, the creators of the nation's wealth, who are entitled to be called the American aristocracy. Birth never creates nobilitf; money cannot make men aristocrats. The com- mission of nobility God writes on the human h...

Se ' <s ■ - í l> May 12, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 y BE TBUE TO TOUB OBLIGA TION. In times like the present, when political enthusiasm • runs high, and men allow their zeal for favor- ites to endanger their judgment, it is opportune to direct the attention of Alliancemen to the importance of clinging closely to the obliga- tions assumed assumed voluntarily when they became members of the order. Almost on the threshold of the Alliance stands the pledge that your connection with the or- der shall in no way abridge or cir- cumscribe your rights, politically, religiously or socially. Now if a brother honestly and candidly be- lieves that a certain course should be pursued to carry into effect the demands of the order and his neighbor Alliance man thinks differently, there should not be any friction, acrimo- nious criticism, or ostracism. The Alliance was not founded to foster or build up any partisan creed, nor further the interest of any per- sonal leader, but to educate the agri...
