A TOM WATSON AT HOME. We give a few extracts of the famous Georgian's speech on his return to Thomaston, his home: The ladies turned out before his arrival and decorated the town. Flowers were strewn on his path way as he went to the grand stand, where he was to address his con- stituents, 4,000 of whom were assembled and greeted the leader of the new party with cheers. When Mr. Watson could gain a hearing he proceeded amid the greatest enthusiasm, by express- ing his gratitude. Continuing he said: Fellow citizens, for eight months I have been attending to your af- fairs; my own businés has been neglected, my own affairs have ta- ken care of themselves; I have stood where you placed me, doing that which I understood was what you told me to do (great applause) and the man or newspaper which say...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Sept. 1,1892 have this difference of 60 cents and they threatened the Texas dele- gation who waited on them that if the free silver bill passed the force bill would go down on the southern people. Not only that, but I was told by Senator Colquitt's secretary, Mr. Henry Jones, that the same threats were made at Chicago. The northern and east- ern democrats said to the southern democracts, "Force that free silver bill upon our people and we will aid in putting the force bill upon yours';" The attempt has been to show that the republicans have always killed the free silver, but every time that free silver has been killed in the last ten or fifteen years the democrats have killed it, and don't yot forget that fact. Many spurned us and denouned us as demagogues because we wanted some of your taxes expend- ed among the people who paid them. I stood there demanding the income tax. I introduced that myself; it was refered to the com- mittee on ways and means and I never he...

y Sept. 1, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. OVER-PRODUCTION. jim armstrong. sr. "Liberty cannot long endure in any country where the tendency of legislation is to concentrate wealth in the hands of a few."—Webster. If over-production means any- thing it means that there are pro- duced more of the necessities of life than there are people to con- sume them. "Their cotton crop was so great that it could not be consumed by all the artisans and people of the world," are Sherman's words to Senator Morgan, in ex- planation of "as to what is the cause of the distress in the south?" This is the logical and on1} con- struction of over-productic i But from the daily accounts of starving thousands, and the pitiable indi- gence of the many, that is falling under one's own observation, give it the lie. Among the words com- pounded with "over," Worcester doesn't give "over-production." From the very nature of things the great lexicographer, no doubt, knew that such a combination ot words was preposterous....

SOU'JDHKRN hkrcuky. Sept. 1, 1892 Government Ownership of Rail- roads a Necessity. F. M. ADAMS. The late decision of the federal court, rendered by Judge McCor- mick at Dallas, Texas, demonstrates the correctness and necessity of the people's party for government own- ership ot railroads, and annihilates the last and only refuge of those who'oppose it. The Texas State Constitution, Art. 1, Sec. 26, says: "Perpetuities and monopolies are contrary to the genius of a free government, and shall never be allowed." The es- sence and spirit of the United States constitution is in full accord with this and in no way opposes it. The democratic national plat- form of 1836 wisely and correctly declared, "Hostility to any and all monopolies by legislation, because they are violations of equal rights ot the people; hostility to the dan- gerous and unconstitutional crea- tion of vested rights or preroga- tives by legitlation, because they are usurpations of the people's sov- ereign rights. We hol...

> Sept. 1. 189a. SOUTHERN MERCURY. The Alabama Election. The regular democracy in Ala- bama have greatly overshot the mark. In their frantic seal to elect their state ticket regardless of the methods employed, they have not only brought affairs in their own state into a deplorable condition, but have done great damage to the national democracy. That the most nnscrupulus and bare-faced cheating was practiced to defeat the Kolb ticket can no longer be questioned. This will be apparent to anyone with ordi narv candor and intelligence who will take the pains to inquire into the situation. Kolb boxes have been stolen and thrown away for alleged irregularities and the Kolb vote suppressed in so many ways that the diaphanous fraud has be come an open outrage. Kolb has indisputably carried a large majority of the counties in the state, more than two-thirds of the white counties being set down in the column which even the Jones people allowed him. The victory claimed for Gov. Jones is bas...

" ■■ ^ SOUTHEKN MEBOUBV. Sept. 1, 1892 -i Labor and Capital. J. B. GAY. Labor represents a basis for the distribution of wealth—equal rights to all—which is democratic gov- ernment. Capital, as it is practically ap- plied today, represents concentrat- ed wealth or autocratic and pluto- cratic government, always tending toward monarchy. Labor creates wealth, is the nat- ural owner, and should control it. Capital, as separately spoken of, appropriates it without any exer- tion or liability and only exists through class legislation/ Labor is the side of chriatianity. By the sweat of thy face thou shalt eat bread. Capital takes the side of oppres- sion, because it makes the indi- vidual conceited, frequently heart- less; both contrary to the spirit ot religion. Labor is necessary to health, usefulness, happiness and Christi- anity. Capital, to idleness, enervation, discontent and misery. Labor makes capital, but capital retrenches labor by taking part of its products. The world has been...

Sept. 1, 1892. 80UTUKKN MKBCUMY. y "> f i THE SITUATION TO-DAY. The high-handed usurpation oí power manifested by State Chair- man Fin ley, who for two years has presided over the democratic party in Texas, supplemented by the in- tensified czarism of Gov. Hogg, has at last bi ought forth an abundant crop of legitimate results, which culminated in the wide and irrepar- able split in Houston, and the nomi- nation of Hogg and Clark, and the deliberate repudiation of the na- tional democratic platform, adopted at Chicago in June, last by the Hogg faction, and the unqualified en- dorsement of that platform by the Clark contingent. This split has completely and permanently disrupted the demo- cratic party in Texas. It has de- stroyed the power of the party lash, turned the voters free, and will aid in a fair count of the votes, because neither faction can truth- fully say: "We are the only legiti- mate democratic party in Texas." The Hogg wing has deliberately destroyed its legitimacy...

Had they been capable of comprehending them they would have avoided the bloodiest chapter in the history of civilization, namely, the French revolution. He said they could comprehend the array, the onset, the shivered diadems, the blood flowing in the streets, but they could not comprehend the mighty revolution of thought. I hope that the historian who shall write the history of the political conflicts of our day may avoid the necessity of inflicting upon American civili zation the same criticism.
