SOUTH KUN MEBCttRf. • r !,1 f oreeds. that they may not hare been able to spring from the plow, and the anvil, and the bench, and give the world a perfect system ot political economy, or to outline the details of legislation which they think is necessary to lead the peo- ple, would not be wonderlul; no sane person would expect anything of that kind. But the question is this: Do you believe that this unrest among the people confiued as it is, not to any political party, but is present in every party today—do you believe that these republicans, that these democrats, that these people's party men and that these prohibitionists are honest? This is the point. Are they sincere and have they a rea" grievance that it is the duty of all political parties to take up and consider, and the duty of statesmen and legislators to take under deep est, careful and most prayerful con sideration? AS TO THE REMEDY. The first step to be taken is a con- servative step. No man who un- dersta...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Sept. 8, 1892 The Situation. .IOIIM M. KING. Is not the question, whether our country has drifted from a repub- lican to some other form of gov- ernment pertinent? It takes but little reflection to convince the unbiased mind that it is not purely one in which the will of the masses wholly influence their representatives in making laws, which is the case in a repub- lican form of government. If there Is a departure, what is the extent and what likely to be the limit? Are these not grave questions for a liberty loving people? There are a few men in our na- tional law making body who are still admonishing the people of the encroachments of class legislation, but it is evident that their number is small and their voices weaker. It is evident that the overshad- owing influence of those who have garnered immense fortunes as bene- ficiaries of special laws is growing. It seems that their power is irre- sistible. It has openly and boldly asserted itself on different occa- ...

( Sept. 8.1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. .. ! '( r 17; •i X / V II An Address from President Loucks. To the Members of the Farmers' Alliance and Industrial Union: For year we have been studying political economy, "the science of government," from a strictly non- partisan standpoint, the only cor- rect method of arriving at the iruth in politics. With unparal- leled unanimity and enthusiasm, we have united on a series of de- mands which have been adopted, affirmed and reaffirmed by our supreme council, our state, county and subordinate alliances. Last February at St. Lonis they were indorsed by twenty-one other great labor organizations. These de- mands are the result of many years' patient study and discussion of the labor problem. We believe they are just and essential. The time has now arrived to test whether we are going to be practical or not. The only way to secure the enactment of these demands into law is through political action— legislation. We have passed through the stages of di...

It no longer needs productions, we don't know wheth- er it is in our mountains or not, but the law governing the increase of the human family, of the popu- lation, is the fixed law, and you can calculate the increase of our popu- lation with absolute certainty That is no matter of chance, but the production of the precious metals, and gold in particular, is purely a matter of chance and yet currency must be based upon gold, and if gold is a matter of chance then your business is a matter of chance, and your success in busi- ness is a matter of chance. Thus you want to subject our mighty conflict in civilization to the power of accident and chance, and then wonder that there should be any- thing like political ...

> Sept. 8, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 WHAT IS THE OUTLOOK? Never in the history oí our re- public have the times been preg- nant with results so threatening and alarming as the present. In every nook and corner of the land, from the pine forests of Maine to the prairies of Texas—from the rock-ribbed shores of Washington to the everglades of Florida, a spirit of unrest pervades the peo- ple. The palladium of liberty— the constitution handed down by the fathers—no longer possesses the magical influence which has preserved the republic for a cen- tury. Disregard for this sacred document is manifested on every hand. The ballot, the potent wea- pon of freemen, no longer express- es the will of the people. Through the manipulation of designing par- tisans, it has become the tool of the assassin of civil liberty; its sanctu- ary has been invaded, and its ex- pressions are meaningless. The judiciary no longer inspires that feeling of protection which charac- terized its decisions and utte...

Sir: Your inquiry in regard to the pamphlet known as "Seven Fi nancial Conspiracies," is at hand. In reply, I have to state that sometime since the postmaster a.t Lansing, Mich., submitted an appli- cation for entry as second-class matter of the "American Series." Accompanying the application were three pamphlets entitled, "Seven Financial Conspiracies," "Political Intrigue or The Great Columbia Dragon" and "Imperial- ism in America," which were des- ignated respectively as Nos. 1, 2, and "Special Number" of said se- ries. Neither of these pamphlets showed a date of issue as required by law, and therefore the series was denied the second-class rates of postage and the postmaster at Lansing, was directed to require third-class postage—1 cent for each two ounces or fraction thereof—as provided by law.

6 80UTHKHN UBODBI. Sept. 15, 1898 ^ The Facta about the Force Bill. A correspondent of the Home and Farm makes the following di- agnosis of the great scare crow wnich the partisan press is using to overawe the people of Texas. Read, reflect ana you will see at once that there is nothing to fear from that direction: This will appear by a consiera- tion of these facts. First, the Force Bill was defeated in the Fifty-first Congress in the Senate by the vote ol the silver Senators of the West. Their opinions with reference to it,as appears from their own utterances, has undergone no change. The Senate in the Fif ty- first Congress has made a gain of four Senators, Pefter, Kyle, Hill and Palmer, for those opposed to the Force Bill. These Senators now fill the seats of Republicans in the Fifty first Congress who were counted favorable to the bill, and hold their seats until 1897.
