The plutocratic press are giving great prominence to the published opinion of the "loyal Alliance gov- ernor of South Carlolina upon the political situation," in which he advises "Alliancemen to stick to, and vote for nominees of the Democratic party." These newspapers have forgot ton that governor Tillman of South Carolina, like governor Northern of Georgia, and gov- ernor Hogg of Texas, turned his back on the Alliance just as soon as he was elected, and that the State Alliance of South Carolina promptly repudiated him, by a unanimous vote at their state meeting in 1891 though he was present, and begged them not to do it. In 1890 the machine Democracy of South Carolina was so bitterly opposed to Tillman that his...

2 SOUTHERN MERCURY. May 19,1892 The Question of the Hour. j. e. taylor. What is it? Looking over the newspapers of the state it seems to be whether Hogg or Clark is to be governor. Looking at the na- tional press it is pinned down to whether Cleveland or Hill will be the nominee of the democratic party. The republican press seem settled down to a belief that Har- rison will carry the flag; it is a perfect matter of indifference to them who does so long as the par- ty wins. That is one thing the republicans read us a lesson in; their complete control of party machinery. They never let such a trivial matter as principie inter fere with party success, in fact, they have so long ago ceased hav ing any, that the average republi can would be at a loss to give you a definition of the word. Party success is their Alpha and Omega. Whereas the democratic party have still a lingering idea that there is such a tilingas principle. But, alasl they have got it so mix- ed up with "machine" politics...

May 19, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 3 *& ( > \ \ MONEY! A Few Calculations That Will Open Tour Eyes. Whosoever controls the volume of money in any country is abso- lute master of all industry and commerce.—James A. Garfield. Liberty cannot long endure iñ any country when the tendency of legislation is to concentrate wealth in the hands of the few.—Daniel Webster. That prices will fall or raise as the volume of money is increased or diminished is a law as unaltera- ble as any law of nature.—Prof. Walker. If the whole volume of money in circulation was doubled, prices would double. If it was increased one-fourth, prices would rise one- fourth.—John Stewart Mill. If congress has the right under the constitution to issue paper money, it was given them by them- selves, not to be delegated to indi- viduals or corporations.—Andrew Jackson. If a government contracted a debt with a certain amount of money in circulation and then contracted the money before the debt was paid, it is the mos...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. May 19, 1892. Some Facta and Figures. The unequal distribution of the products of labor and the unfair allotment of the common comforts to say nothing of the luxuries of life, can only be made plain by personal observation or a resort to statistics. A comparison of the rewards which follow production on one band and idleness and scheming on the other brings out such a strong contrast as should attract the attention of all prudent citizens. In a speech delivered in Congress May 16, 1888, Hon. Ben. Butter- worth made the following state- ments in regard to the income of farms in some of the states : Per year. Per day Ohio $394 $1.08 Georgia 150 .42 Illinois.. 470 1.30 Alabama 375 .41 Wisconsin 375 1.02 The average income of the farm- ers of the United States is less than $1.00 a day counting 365 days in a year. Mr. Butterworth also stated the average income of me- chanics and laborers in different cities: Per year. Per day Cincinnati $258.00 $0.93 Lowell, Mass 224.00...

Hay 19, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. SOME SOMERSAULTING. 'Tis said that politics makes strange platforms, and it is also admitted that politics has become more or less corrupt, hence it gen- erally occurs that when a politician flops from one side of a question to the other, that there is a deal behind it. It has long been the rule for those who change upon political questions to give their reasons to the public. We have had considerable changing of front in Texas during the last eighteen months, and thus far, the somersaulters have not ex- plained the causes that led to these changes. In 1890, the national bankers, railway attorneys, and managers, etc., bitterly opposed Jas. S. Hogg, and the railway com- mission. The farmers and labor- ing people rallied to his support, and elected him by an unprece- dented majority. The members of the Farmers Alliance especially supported him then. How is it now? Recently, twenty-two men, twenty of whom were railway at- torneys, receivers, etc., met in...

' 6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Hay 19, 1892. INDUSTRIAL INNINGS. It is probable that a cotton factory, with 3,500 spindles and a capital stock of $50,000, will be es- tablished at Birmingham, Ala. Work on the brick waílsof the building for the Union Cotton Mill, at La Fayette, Ga., have been commenced and will be rapidly pushed to completion.. A "Persian carpet" factory has begun work near Moscow, Russia. The product is softer, says an exchange, than the genuine Per- sian, but in color and design they are identical. The price is about one-half the Pers;an. The Commonwealth Cotton Fac- tory, with 6,000 spindles, will soon be in operation at Durham, N. C. The plant will be run in connec- tion with the knitting mill at that place. The machinery has been purchased at a cost of about $50,000. The proposition L. Godfrey, oí Providence, K. I., to erect a cot- ton mill at Alexandria, La., was favorably considered by the Board of Trade and a committee appoint- ed to investigate. The mill pro- posed i...

JAMES ARMSTRONG. €' Aspiring demagogues for politi- cal preferment only after exhaust- ing nearly all their stock in trade "ad nauseum" to the public, have as a dernier resort, fell back on their confederate record. They and their friends are cavorting over the state telling how "they fit bled and died for the lost cause." This confederate record business is a back number, a dead issue; settled by the highest tribunal to which man can appeal, a full gen- eration ago. Each man in that grand struggle did his duty, whether he willed or not to do it. This campaign for the governor- ship has nothing to do with what men have done; but with what are we doing now, what are we going to do in the future? With all due defference to the confederacy, and the rank and file of her sol- diery, let's turn on the Calcium light of truth and through the magic lantern oí the past, examine "a confederate record" and see what "...

May 19,1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 fcl / K GOVERNOR HOGG AND THE ALLIANCE. Governor Hogg, who has all along been coqueting with the Al- liancemen of Texas, and asserting that he was the only safe reposi- tory of their principles, let the eat out of the bag in his speech at Corsicana on April 29th, last. ' Being asked by an old man in the audience, why he did not ap- point S. D. A. Duncan on the rail- road commission, said: "Now you want to ask the ques- tion if I would have appointed Duncan if the resolutions had reached me. I simply tell you no, no, no. I would not have appoint- ed him. [Applause and cheers.] At this point the old gentleman who asked the speaker the ques- tion got up to ask another, and the crowd showed a disposition to hiss him, which the governor promptly stopped, and when quiet had been restored the old man said: "I am a Hogg man, but there is a consid- erable third party following in Navarro, and I just 'wanted them to know how it was.

They do not know that slumber- ing within their muscular anatomy is as bright an intellect as ever graced the greatest in the grand galaxy of the world's heroes. So long they have stood tied to the hitching posts of the dead past; clinging to old established cus toms arbitrary and tyrannical, rather than to think out a mode of relief. After they have thought it out theyjfail to put iu the necessa- ry machinery to carry the thought into action. At the present time conserva- tism ceases to be a virtue. Only the most radical reform measures can meet the emergencies. Men have so long been the machine for others, that they have let others do their thinking and have been only the machines to carry their thoughts into execution. They did not question which system of rules or customs would, if carried into effect, bring about the better results. They took the regimen of laws given, bowed their ne...
