Aug. 18, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 11 Mills' Statement Explained. / I J \- f? I J I i % m p' «$*•. Mr j. n. CONE. When 11. Q. Mills says the cot- Ion, corn, wheat, tobacco, etc., de- posited in government warehouses as provided for in the subtreasury plan, "would be beyond the reach of the depositor," or language to that effect, he betrays a pitiable ignorance of the subject of which he assumes to speak or a contemp- tible disposition to misrepresent the facts in the case. It would be charitable to ascribe the position taken by the honora- ble gentleman in the matter under consideration to ignorance, and es- pecially so when we take into ac- count the fact that he, if my mem- ory serves me aright, when inter- viewed, some two or more years ago, as to the relations of capital and labor, said "I have not given the matter sufficient thought to justify me in an expression of an opinion upon the subject." I am not right sure that I have given, the exact language in which Mr. Mills replied ...

* SOUTHERN HEBCURT. Aug. 18, 1892 Jerome C. Kearby. Col. Jerome C. Kearby, the People's party nominee for con- gress, was born in Arkadelphia, Ark., May, 1848. His father moved to Denton county, Texas, in 1857, and settled on a ranch. At the opening of the war young Kearby entered the confederate army. He was only 13 years of age and the youngest soldier in the army. Receiving an honorable discharge at Hempstead in 1865, he returned home and entered the law office of Judge Waddell ati- McKinney, where he devoted three years to the study of law. His course of study was completed under Col. Welch of Denton. In 1809 he located in Van Zandt county and in 1874 moved to Dal- las. He has forged his way into the front ranks of his profession and his defense ot Eugene Logan et al., in the Marlow cases has given him a national reputation. He now stands as one of the most profound and astute lawyers in the United States, and we predict that as a statesman in the national coun- cils at Washingt...

"Mr. President, Fellow Citizens of the United States, Ladies and Gentlemen: I am not a candidate for office and therefore, what I shall say here tonight shall not be for any personal benefit. The silver question is an irrepressible conflict. The gold barons cannot enslave men who read 13,000 newspapers. Labor demands better things than to exist in the United States. Printer's ink, steam and electricity have caused men to think, and the labor question has got to be met and answered. How? That's the question which today bristles with anxiety, and must be settled. How? By the civil law. Not by bullets, by the ballot, not by bayonets, by votes, not by Pinkerton murder- ers. "All history has...

Plant the standaed by the ballot box and there, with uncovered heads swear anew, "In hoc signo vinces." In this sign, the sign oí the] ballot box and the old flag, will we con- quer without bayonets and without bullets. • "What are we going to do to be saved? On the 12 th day of August 1877 the New York Times con- tained an editorial on "Bonanza Farms." In it occurs these words: Ms there a way of deliverance? There seems to be but one remedy. I t is a change of ownership of the soil, and the creatin of a class of land owners on the one hand, and of tenant farmers on the other.' Thus that paper—that republican paper— desired to dispose of the public domain and the small farms. At the annual dinner of the But- ler club, on May 1, 1890, in Bos- ton, General Butler in his speech, said: Our farmers are in debt $3,400,000,000 and they can never pay the debt with our financial s...

Bently, Campaign Man- ager People's Party of Texas: Yours touching the matter of so- cial equality between Cleveland's family and Fred Douglas and fami- ly has been received. I am quite sure that the democrats can never make capital out of the force bill, which they say would bring negro equality in the south. For when our people meet their speakers all they have to do is to show that Mr. Cleveland put negro equality into practice in the White House. At most of his official receptions and even at his wedding feast Fred Douglas, his wile and black daugh- ter (by a former wife) were invited guests. During the Chicago conven- tion Col. R. Q. Washington pub- lished a letter which appeared in the Fort Worth Gazette and I quote the following from his let- ter: "Time passed. Mr. Cleveland was sworn into office and recited his in- augural.

Mr. Mills in a speech delivered in congress on February 3, 1886, upon, his very subject; said: "There's no curse in existence like the contraction of the circulation. War and pestilence and famine may spread their baleful wings over the land, but the evils they bring with them are not to be compared to the contraction of the circulation which throws out of employment from three to five millions of la- borers, enforcing idleness, bringing tears to every cheek, sorrow and distress to every home, hunger and starvation to every door. Yet this is what these advocates of scarce money are asking us to do to-day in the name of the laborers." Why is this? If money pos- sessed no other qualification than that of a railroad, or a steamship, or a bill of exchange; if it simply e...
