The first donation of land was made by democrats. Stephen A. Douglas introduced the bill, which was entitled: "An act granting the right of way and making a grant of land to the states of Illinois, Mississippi and Alabama; in aid of the construttion of a railroad from Chicago to Mobile." As much as 30,420,920 acres were given the railroads by democrats prior to 1861. The Union Pacific grants were the largest ever made. Only two democrats voted against them in the house. They make a great howl over reclaiming much of this land, for getting to mention the fact that the la...

The law is in effect to- day. As Tom Watson says, it's all wrong to loan money on corn and cotton, but all right to loan it on rot-gut whiskey. This is record! It is terribly true! We dare and challege a denial of it. The people don't know these things. Four-fifths of the country politicians are in ignorance of them. They may or may not be- lieve in their party, but they shall not deceive the people into think- ing their leaders saints and their rotton old party machinery run- ning in the interest of the masses. We are not one-quarter through with this record business and before the campaign is ended tne public shall know the facts as they exist. —Little Rock Farmer.

It is urged that the number of employes of the government would be vastly increased. This argument, too, loses any force, if it has any, by the addition of the tele- phone. For all distances under 200 miles, the telephone can be employ ed, and the present postmasters can of course use them. A few tele- graph centers—one or two for each State—could be established, to which all long distance messa would be sent, to be there patched by telegraph. At these centres there would be a staff, more or less large, of operators, but the civil service rule would apply, as they already do to the same post offices. The annual increase in the number of postmasters and post offices employes, by rea...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. June 23,1892* PARTISAN CONSISTENCY. Some of the leadiog[Democratic journals of the South and West are taking a wonderful interest in "that soldier resolution," writing columns to prove that is a part of the St. Louis platform and they try to convince their Southern reader that should men favorable to the St. Louis Confer- ence platform be elected to Con- gress, this soldier resolution would at once become a law. They elaborate the enormity of taxation which J this resolntion is likely to impose upon the voter, especially the Southern voter, when they know there never was a ghost of a chance for this resolu- tion ever becoming any part of the policy of the reformers. Is it not strange that journals of influence professing such friendship and solicitude for the Southern voters, should be affected with po- litical jim jams by this little side show. Yet they kave no word of condemnation for Republican and Democratic Senators and Con- gressmen whose votes made $1,- 5,00...

"H m \ ( Í f' :i J tj } 1 < > It: 4fr */ ■ I heard an old farmer, who had listened to a political speech, ask an old Colonel—a friend, what the farmers and laborers were to do, as times were getting harder every year? The Colonel told him "to do more work and talk less poli- tics." The farmer told him that he had worked harder last year than ever before, and that he had come out worse behind than ever, and remarked, that he was not ed- ucated, and wanted advice. At this the Colonel pulled loose, ran up the steps to his office, crying: "go to work, go to work, that is where I am going; I have to work for my living." This Colonel is a lawyer and a banker. There was quite a crowd around and the farmer said: "Friends, I am in ear- nest. I have had thirteen children born to me, and if nothing happens the fourteenth will be. I am try ing to do something to protect our children. I was never farther than the ...

What are the signs of promise for the down-twrodden, monopoly, ridden wealth producers of this highly favored land, of ours ? Is there any hope of relief? Yes; but not by or through the old par- ties, as they are now trying to rivet the chains tighter on the limbs of the wealth producers, that bind them to the chariot wheels of the money. power, the plutocrats, by their refusing to pass the free coin- age act, which gives them com- plete control of the volume of the money, by which they can contract or inflate as their greed and ava- rice may dictate.

V June 23, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. > Progressive Forces vs. Retarding Prejudices. J. B. GAT. "Yet, I doubt not thro' the ages, one in- creasing purpose runs, And the thoughts of men are widened with the process of the suus." I take the position that the mis- fortunes of life teach wisdom, not necessarily, but taken into full ac- count, it does, either from the ex- perience of the individual, or from observation. Many people fight their better natures on this idea, and rise to worldly success, so- called; but to the candid investiga- tor, there is a deficiency in the fullness of the natural resources in one, and utter completeness in the other. I find men so thorough ly trained against their own feel- ings that they fight economic truth for popularity, thus weakening some strong force in their nature, and through the blindness of a searded conscience, commit some almost criminal neglect in the fu- ture welfare of their children. If you do not believe this look at the children of m...

V June 23, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 THE ONLY SURE REMEDY. If Neoro or Catalice were living in this country to-day they could learn volumes in the arts of cruelty and cunning from the Democratic and Republican bosses. Their savage persecuction of any who express an opinion of their own lays the inquisition completely in the shade. In emulation of their prototypes a baker's dozen of those who fat- ten on the misfortunes of their countrymen assemble, and arrogat- ing to themselues the attributes of autocrats, unblushingly formulate a platform, map out a State, pro- ceed forthwith to inaugurate a a campaign of fraud, deception and cunning, unknown to our fathers; with a malignity unparalleled in history they apply the party lash to their adherents, until the major- ity of them are glad to escape the scourging by sneaking into |line, and voting the ticket dictated by the bosses. Should any one dare to express an independent opinion, or mani- fest an intention of voting the in- dependent...

The Mbbcurt, in common with other papers, made a mistake in publishing the St. Louis demands. The correct, verbatim document, as it came from the hands of of the committee on platform, is as follows: NATIONAL PLATFORM, finance. First—We demand a national currency, safe «ound, and flexable,' issued by the general government only, a full lejral tender for all debts, public and private, and that without the use of banking corporations, ajuat, equitable and efficient means of circulation, direct to the people at a tax not to exceed 2 per cent, be provided, as set forth in the sub-treasury plan of the Farmers Alliance or some bettor system; also by payment in discharge of its obligations for publio improvements. a.

June 23, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 11 Jir jr Paper Money 8triotly Demoeratio The Hon. E. L. Antony's delib- erate statement that "neither con- gress nor any other power in this government has any legal or con- stitutional right to issue paper money" is a direct and positive repudiation of the teachings of all the founders of the democratic party, and is a full and complete indorsement of the principles ad- vocated by John Sherman and the ruling spirits of the republican party. This is fully proven elsewhere in this issue of the Mercury un- der the head of "Antony Pinned to the Wall." This is in direct opposition to all the financial legislation enac- ted by the democratic party prior 1860. That there may be no division of opinion about the mat- ter, we publish a short synopsis of financial legislation inspired by the democratic fathers when the party controlled every department of the government. The act of June 3, 1812, au- thorized the issue of $5,000,000 treasury notes, which under...

Jone 23.1892. it. ÍV NUGENT AT STBPHENVILLB. Stands Flat Footed Upon the St. Louis Platform. > j*- Last Saturday at Stephenville Hon. T L. Nugent addressed a large concourse of people. He was introduced by Mr. King and spoke succinctly as follows: There have been two immortal decla- tions made by the people of this country. The one the declaration of independence made in 1776. the other the St. Louis dec- laration made Feb. 22, 1892. The one asserted the right of self-government by the people and the independence of kings, the other asserts the right of industrial labor against moneyed tyranny, the emancipation of industrial labor from the thraldom and slavery of a govern- ment created plutocracy. The one de- clared that the masses should be free from the rule and tyranny of king or kings, the other declared that the indus- trial masses ought and shall be free of the rule, tyranny and oppression of the heartless dollar. The St. Louis declara- tion must be passed upon by the freed...

DALLAS, TEXAS, THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 1892. Whole No. 531. Figures Don't Lie. There are many persons who are not aware of the enormous robber- ies that have been perpetrated on the people under the cover of law. For the benefit of such we repro- duce herewith the remarks made by Senator Beck in the United States Senate: Senator Beck, in a speech deliv- ered in the United States Senate on January 12, 1874, stated that the bondholders had made out of the people, since the first bonds were issued in 1862, up to 1850, at which time the bonds were made payable in coin, over $1,000,000,- 000 profit. The senator furnished the figures for his statement and proved them by the government records. Let us see how it was done. 1872.—During this year the gov- ernment sold bonds valued at $60,- 982,450, for which it received, however, o...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. June 30,1892 dangerous and relentless foe to civ- ilization that has ever existed among mankind. A robber who should buy up tlie potatoes and bread in a com munity, stand off all legitimate competition with a club, and sub stitute saw dust for a diet, would be killed by the infuriated popu- lace without delay; but a corner on news, a stab at mental liberty, placing a bludgeon in the hands of an unscrupulous aristocracy, with which to maul the intelligence out of labor; placing the reading pub- lic at the mercy of soulless politi- cal leaders—seem by common consent to be privileges conferred upon a few pampered political pets, which are more extraordinary and more monstrous than anything in the world's history.
