The Evidence. y To Whom it may Concern: This is to certify that I, L. L. Polk, president of the National Farmers Alliance and Industrial Union, was elected chairman and did preside over the Industrial Conference which was held at St. Louis, Mo., February 22-24, 7892, I further certify that the following resolution was not considered by Sthat conference as any part of the platform adopted, but was simply a resolution expressing a matter of | \ \ detail. "Resolved that, the government issue legal tender notes and pay the union soldier the difference be- tween the price of the depreciated money in which he was paid and gold." I do not consider it a part of the platform because the committee on platform did not so report it, and neither did the conference so con- sider it. [Signed] L. L. Polk. This April 8, 1892. To Whom it may Concern: This is to certify that I, J. H. Turner, secretary and treasurer of the National Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union, was a dele- gate to the Industr...

2 cover up the fact that it is a loan. Bankers will say that this money is not always loaned out, and that five per cent must be held as a redemp- tion fund. This is all bosh, and calculated to deceive. Interest is paid in advance to a bank and com- pounded from twelve to fifty times each year. Half of it is never taken from the banks, but it is left there subject to check, and is loaned again in ten ten mintes after the first note is made. There are thous- ands of petty stealings in this bus- iness which, taken together, make make up an aggregate that is ap- palling.

V Jone 16 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. S i I What Has Become of the Money ? The treasury department, bureau of statistics, send, out under date of April 20, 1892, a "statement of for- eign commerce and immigration for March, 1892." On the fourth page of this pamphlet is summed up the comparison between the exports and imports of merchan- dise, gold and silver coin, and bul- lion for the year ending March 81, 1892, also for years previous. In 1891 the exports of merchandise exceeded the imports, by the sum of $36,347,922, and strange to say this was not only not paid in mon- ey as the old, economists thought necessary, but there was an excess of exports of gold and silver over the imports amounting to $13,45] ,- 079, making a total absolute loss to the nation by export of $49,- 799,000. This is a condition de- plorable in the extreme, because the export of the excess of mer. chandise has not been accompanied by a rise of the balance remaining in the country and thereby creat- ing an induc...

¡, I SOUTHERN MERCURY. June 16, 1892. In the Reform Rank*. R. H. ANDERSON. Thelaboring classess throughout this country have at last discover- ed their pitiful situation. Of course all of them have not found it out, but the majority of them have, and they are going to force the party bosses into an uncondi- tional surrender at the next elec- tion. For the last thirty .years the wealth of this country has been drifting out of the hands of those who produce it into the hands of the few. In 1865, at the close of the civil war, farm mortgages were almost unknown, while now they number 9,000,000, represent- ing an indebtedness of about $3,- 250,000,000. the interest on which, at 8 per ccnt amounts to $260,- 000,000, besides the farmers owe on other debts about $3,000,000,- 000. This shows the distressed condition oí affairs the farmers have to contend with. This is enough to convince any one that there has got to be something done for relief. Now, the question arises how are we going to ...

t June 16 1892. SOUTHERN FRY. 5 AktONY PINNED TO THE WALL* At a joint debate between Hon. E. L. Antony, nominee of the so- called Democracy of the Ninth Congressional District for Hon R. Q. Mills' unexpired term and Harry Tracy, on the evening of the 4th of June, 1892, Mr. Anto- ny said," Neither Oongiess nor any any other power in this govern- ment has any legal or constitution- al right to issue paper money." Mr. Tracy in his rejoinder read from the following authorities, the proofs of the correctness of the principle as taught by the Demo- cratic fathers: Thomas Jefferson: " The ques- tion will be asked and ought to be looked at, What is to be the re- course if loans cannot be obtained ? Bank paper must be suppressed, and the circulating medium restor- ed to the nation, to whom it belongs. And so the nation may continue to issue its bills as far as its wants require, and the limits of its circulation will admit. Those limits are understood to extend with us at present to two hund...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. June 16, 1892. The Overproduction Howl. JNO. C. ADAMS. The leaders of the so-called Democratic party (because its its name is all there is Democratic about it) make tariff and overpro- duction the only issues in the com- ing campaign. As tariff was the issue in An- drew Jackson's campaign, and has been ever since, I will pass it by without further comment, and notice the other issue, which is overproduction. The overproduction howlers claim that the farmers have raised a surplus of certain products, and that this surplus tends to cheapen the price, which must be governed by the inevitable law of supply and demand. That the law of supply and demand governs the prices, no man who has as much brains as a jaybird will deny. The overproduction^howlers only state one side of the case ; they seem to ignore the fact that the price of an article depends on the demand as much as on the supply of the article. Now the law of supply and de- mand is, that the price of an arti- c...

June 16,1898. SOUTHERN BEBCUBY. > THE JUNTA'S BULE. Partisan politics and party methods since the war have been very different in the United States to what it was prior to that time. From 1800 to 1860 the platforms of the Democratic party bristled with clear cut prin- ciples. Every four years its national delegates met in conven Jtion and placed in their platform, in plain emphatic language, the principles of the rank and file of the party, and went before the people with plain arguments to sustain the principles enunciated in their platforms. Then the lead; ers were not afraid of the people. Then they had confidence in the wisdom of the masses, and relied upon their sober, unprejudiced discrimination for success. The same may be truthfully said of all other political parties that assumed any great strength, barring the Federalists. This party never pretended to have any confidence in the people's ability for self- government. After the war, how- ever, the two leading parties the...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 f h 17 THE LAMPASAS CONVENTION The machine Democratic con vention, that assembled in Lam pasas, Texas, to select delegates to the National Democratic(?)conven tion in Chicago, on June 21, has passed into history. Its proceed ings were precisely what every one expected. Their cowardice, in cut- ting out the plank denouncing the pensink system, which every one of them denounces on the stump, is in keeping with their hypocriti cal history. They are afraid o:: their northeastern masters. The silver plank which th'ey adopted is a complete and cowardly desertion of the free and unlimited coinage of silver, and places the machine Democracy of Texas, bag and bagggage, in the gold-bug camp.

Many machine Democrats have shown great solicitude about our candidate for governor, and are anxious to know who he will be. Alien land monopolies, and for- eign and home [combines, trusts, and monopolies of every descrip- tion, are some of the tentacles of the mighty monster which is now sapping the life and prosperity of the people, and making it impos- sible to succeed in life or acquire homes in this country. The so-called alien land law which they have patched up is a good sample of their solicitude for for the people's welfare. Gov. Hogg should have spurned it as a very poor makeshift for what the {)eople wanted. In offering to end the school money to the rail- roads he is inconsistent with his previous record ; for he declares railroads to be robbers of the greatest magnitude. Notwith- standing, he is swinging around over the State on a paid salary, asking the endorsement of the p...
