One historian has justly admired another for "above all things that truly philosophical discrimination, which judges the past as it would judge the present; which does not permit itself to be blinded by the clouds which time gathers around the dead, and which prevent us irom seeing that under the toga, as under the modern dress in the sen- ate, as in our councils men were what they still are, and that events took place 18 centuries ago, as they take place in our days."

The Norman was no more a ty- rant in monopolizing the privileges of the chase, than the American is in monopolizing the sale of oil. The ancient English king and the modern American monopolist came into the world alike. Both had the talent and were ambitious to rule. In the days of the former .conquest was the avenue to honor- able power. Heroes, and not money-lenders were the theme> of the sages. His character recom- mended itself to the honours ot his countrymen as it conformed to the ideal of the age. He longed for power and fame and accepted the means then legitimate there- to. His beginning was as humble as any has since been. "It was as impossible to deny his craft as to dispute his genius" says Bulwer. The reward of his valor was the countship of Normandy.

V July 28 1892. SOUTH£RN MERCURY. Do You See It? Tuesday, May 31, 1892, Charles Foster, Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, was in the city of New York. He went into the office oí a broker and seller of money on Wall Street, and there sold Amer- icans coins that are money in this country at a price which the broker was willing to give there- for, and bought from the broker at a price the broker was wil- ling to sell; a bundle of notes which the bank of England had printed and which under the law of Great Brittain, are lawful mon- ey in England. Secretary Foster did this in order to suppiy a por- tion of his family that was going to Europe by the steamer City of Paris, that left New York June 1st, 1892, that might have with them what would be legal tender in the country they were booked to'visit. A quiet man who happend to be standing by when the Secretary sold his gold coins and bought the Bank of England notes, asked: "Why do you sell those gold coins here? Why not have...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Jily 2 8, 1892. General Weaver at Home. Hon Fred G. White, of Iowa, is from General Weaver's district, known as the "Sixth Iowa." He is one of the ablest new men in Congres, and his opinion on men and things is especially valuable at the present time. He says: A regard for actual facts as they exist compels me to differ from those who declare General Weav- er to be a weak candidate. He is- responsible in a larger degree than any man living for the growth and the present status of the third party move. He has spent the Dest part of his life in expound- ing its principles and spreading its gospel. The man who calls Weaver a weak stick, either does not know the man or doesn't mean to be fair. While we may differ, and differ widely in our po- litical convictions, that ought not prevent us from recognizing merit wherever it may exist. Not only is he thoroughly honest and sin- cere in his convictions, but he is the best equipped, mentally and physically, to carry on a ca...

July 88 1898. SOUTHERN MEBCUBY. > a /■ Answer if You Can, Dr. J. N. Hand in the Atlanta Alliance Farmer, puts the Demo- cratic "machine" to flight as fol- lows: Is the Democratic party a re- form party? This question demands a candid answer from ever freeman in the country, who expects to vote in the «oming elections, that has demand- ed a reform of the defective, vici- ous and corrupt legislation now in force in the government. It demands a candid answer from a non-partisan standpoint. Trees are correctly judged by their fruit; men by their acts, and par- ties by their legislative work. A hasty glance at the early history and varing success and failure may serve to aid us in reaching a just and impartial answer to our ques- tion. It appears by reference to the history of the time, that the pres- ent Democratic party had its ori- gin in the contest betweeu Jack- son and Adams for the presidency in 1828. In 1816 the first nat- ional bank was chartered by congress, the charter to r...

As a convert to the principles of the people's party I proceed to give my reasons for leaving the democratic party. I have never scratched the name of a democratic nominee. I have followed the platform and leaders of the party as devotedly as a sucking calf ever did its mother. The time has come when the aspirants to office invites the co- operation of all personal friends of every party and political persua- sion to contr ol the primaries and nominating conventions. The platforms are changed every two years, and the changes have been so often that it resembles the devil fish and causes one to think it a "machine" for catching votes and to perpetuate chronic office- seekers in position. In my opinion we have the . grandest country under the sun. I mean the nortn, south, east and west oí the United States of Amer- ica.

1 July 28, 1892. SOUTHERN HKRCUKY. lit M Behold The Dawn. For twenty-five years after the close of the war the non combat- ants who hired substitutes in order to save their own precious lives, pulled hair and kicked shins over the "bloody shirt." As the echo of the last gun died away "the gallant home guards crawled forth from their hiding places" and began the war of ex- termination. During the bloody shirt era a horde of thieves and robbers were pillaging the treasury. ,¡ It was a bond-purchasers' para- dise! A land-stealers' picnic! A bankers' carnival! A dress parade of political pros- titues! A feast for office seekers! A riot of robbers! A perfect holiday for thieves! It is safe and reasonable to as- sert that during the period occu- pied in wrangles over the bloody shirt—indulged in for the purpose of distracting the attention of the people from the wholesale plunder that was going on—not less than fifty per cent of the property of the United States fraudulently and felonious...

Does the necessity for a new party exist? Let the conditions of the country at large answer. From Maine to California, and from Michigan to Florida comes the cry of stagnation in trade, financial distress, a fast increasing popula- tion of paupers, with grim visaged want lurking in ever city, town and village. These are the condi- tions which surounds us, appeal- ing for redress, and, there are none so bold as to doubt the evidences of his own personal knowledge.
