June 2, 1892. HEBCUBT. > >V Why the State Should Manufac- ture and Publish its Own Books. JAMES FITZGERALD. Any business which in its na- ture is a monopoly should be regu- lated and controlled by the State. The State must control in self- defense, and for the protection of the equal rights of citizens. The field in which the State may ope- rate beneficially as the executive of the great co-operative associa- tion, into which it is the true ten- dency of true civilization to blend society will widen with the im- provement of government and the growth of public.spirit. We have already made an im- portant step in this direction in our public school system. Our public schools are not maintained for the poor, as are the English board schools, where, moreover, payment is required from all who can pay ; nor yet is their main mo- tive the protection of the State against ignorance. These are sub- sidiary motives. But the main motive for the maintenance of our public schools is, that b...

> J line 2| 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 i'' í :• I r I 1 A PEEP AT THE RECORDS U. S. Senator Gordon, of Geor- gia, recently has been rushing iuto print, telling the people how un- mercifully they have been robbed: 1st. Through the national bank ingsystem, 2d. By the contraction of the money, 3d. By the demonetization of silver, 4th. By the thieving tariff, 5th. By land grants to rail roads, 6th. Repeal of the income tax. He winds up by saying that the Republican party is alone chaige- able with these great crimes, and that the Democratic party will destroy these octopuses if they ever get into a position to do it. Texas congressmen, during the long hot days of last summer, said the very same things, and made the very same promises, while engaged in trying to defeat the growing popularity of the Alliance demands. Let us enquire into the records a little. It will disclose some facts that will suggest remedies that most of us have not yet thought of. 1st. When, where and how has the D...

My sisters, you must study and think—study every reform paper that comes in your way, thereby cultivating your intellect that you may be the better prepared to fight the enemy, and also to encourage your brave husband, brother or father in this great struggle for the liberty our forefathers fought, bled and died for; and which we have lost through ignorance and the blinding influence of partisan prej- udice.

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Jnne 9,1899. < Convistenoy in Politics. henry b. mcculloch. It strikes me as a little singular that the leaders and editors the of organized democracy of Texas have not sufficient confidence in their ability to check and roll back the reform wave that is sweeping over our grand State, without calling to their aid the able speech of Geor- gia's grand farmer (Senator Gor- don) who carries home to the re- publican party all our wrongs and evils with great truthful force, and Soints us to the present organized emocratic party as our only hope for the correction of these wrongs and remedy for these evils; and yet he, with other able democrats op- pose the very measures which we propose as remedies for these evils. So that according to his views, if the democratic party had full con- trol of the federal government they would not respect our de- mands nor grant us the remedies that we can see that we need and must have, to save us from' finan- cia\ ruin, our or governm...

F L> ACKNOWLEDGED VILLAINY. It has been reserved for the year 1892, to put the capsheaf on the perfidy of the American con- gress and the government gener- ally. The report of the bureau of statistics of the' treasury depart- ment should be carefully read by every liberty loving citizen, and every reform speaker should place it in his scrap book. This pre- cious document was issued 20tn of April, 1892, and reports that dur- ing the year ending 81st of March, 1891, our total exports of merchan- dise over imports was $36,347,922, and the excess of exports of gold and silver over imports was $13,- 451,078, making a total of $49,- 790,000. This amount was of course a total loss to this country, and discloses a condition of things very humiliating to our people. This, however, is not the worst of it. The same report shows that this heavy burden has been inten- sified five hundred per cent during the year ending the 31st of March, 1892, showing the excess of ex- ports over imports of m...

IT. June 9, 1892. Thoughts for Thinkers. D. W. MORRIS. Ill his message to congress in 1861, Mr. Lincoln used these words: " Monarchy is sometimes hinted at as a possible refuge from the power of the people. In my {iresent position I would be scarce- y justified were I to omit ex- ercising a warning ¿voice against returning despotism. There is one point to which I ask attention. It is the effort to place capital on an equal footing with if not above labor, in the structure of the gov- ernment. I bid the laboring peo- ple beware of surrendering a pow- er which they already possess, and which, when surrendered, will surely be used to close the door of advancement to su«h as they, and fix new disabilities and burdens upon them until all of liberty shall be lost." Mr. Lincoln was an honest man, and he had heard monarchy hinted at to such an extent that he deem- ed ;t worthy of mention in one of the most important papers he ever prepared. He says, "I bid you be- ware." Beware of what ? "O...

Jam , 1899. SOUTHERN KEBCTJBT. > Is He a Knave or a Fool! J. B. CONE. Judge Clark comes all the way down from Waco to Gonzales, to "preach the gospel of pure, una- dulterated democracy," and tells us "I don't want a rich govern- ment and a poor people, but a rich Jeople and a poor government." s this democracy? A government characterized by one condition while the people are otherwise cir- cumstanced? In other words, is a government democratic that is not in and of the people? That is composed of the people? It would seem that Judge Clark thinks so! If not, then is he preaching "the gospel of pure and unadulterated emocracy" when he expresses a desire to see the people rich and the government poor? Is it a fact that he does not know what a dem- ocratic government is? or is it that he presumes upon the ignorance of a whole community, and thinks he can stuff them with matter like that he treated us to here, last Thursday? If he had been edu- cated to understand the pure dem- ocracy...

Jiae 9,1898. SOUTHERN KBHCUBT. r"1 4 A, REASONS FOR THE GOVERNOR'S CHANGE V- OF POLICY. Governor Hogg and his cam paign managers have made a com plete change of £ front since the beginning of the present]cam paign. The change reflects neither honor nor credit on the great Hogg combination, but it shows how quickly an autocratic dictator can be changed into a pusillanimous supplicant, when driven by an in- telligent constituency to defend an unsavory record, or explain widely contradictory statements. Mr. Hogg opened the campaign now on, with a great flourish of trumpets, pointed with towering pride to his official acts, his cam paign speeches of 1890, and defied any one to assail either ; indicating plainly that he expected his cam- paign of 1892 would be one con- tinued ovation, and a practical walk over. But inside of forty days we find him down off his lofty perch, on his knees before those he recently spat upon, beg- ging them to support him on their own terms. Finding those who...
