) Sept. 15 1892. SOUTHKBN HEHCUKY. Especial to Allianoemen. HENRY E. M'CULLOCH. The Farmer's Alliance which originated with and was put on foot by a few humble, unpretend- ing farmers in Lampasas county, Texas, but a few years ago, com- mended itself so fully to the patri- otic thinking portion of our fellow citizens that its pure, grand prin ciples have been adopted through- out the entire United States, and its kindly, brotherly, economic, pa- triotic teachings has already done, and is doing, more to heal sectional divisions, blot out sectional line«i, dispel sectional annimosities and bring our entire people together and unite them upon terms of com- mon brotherhood, than all else that has ever been done since the close of the civil war, and when we look back through the past history of our country and remember the bloody trials through which it has passed, it must be a matter of as- tonishment to every man that any reform movement could have ac- complished so much in so short a ...

Sept. 16, 1892. SOUTHBBN MERCURY. 9 i ; I Hfe' fcy the constitution upon congress, ■urely the men^who formulated it were the men. Again in 1812, '13, '14 and 1815 congress issued millions of paper money and continued to do so under democratic administrations p to and including 1860. They also changed the weight and fine- ness of our metalic money When cornered, these same ob- structionists say they advocate "the money of the world." Here again they forget that there is no such thing as the money of the world. The money of one nation is not the money of another na- tion, though of the same material. Nations do not pay debts to each other in money, but in commodities. If coin is received it is received like any other commodity—by weight, not by count. The products of the earth form the medium of exchange between nations,and gold and silver form a very insignificant part of it. They who argue for scarce money, favor dear money, which means cheap men and cheap labor. It takes the value ...

'mí : 10 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Sept. 15,1892 Solution of the Labor Problem. M. O. C. EDIIOLM, OF W. C. T. U. The Carnegie troubles with the laboring men have brought the labor problem to the front in the minds of all. The only solution lies in the divinely given golden rule, "As ye would that men should do to you, do ye also unto them." This has been strikingly illustrated by the millionaire merchant prince and evangelist, Mr. Charles N. Crittendon, who has taken into part- nership five of the heads of depart- ments in his great wholesale house in New York, pronounced by the New York "Times" "probably the largest in the world." The New York press is full of praise for this notable deed. The New York "Herald" says: "On its face the transaction was simply the-re- organization of the house of Chas. N. Crittendon as an incorporated company." As a matter of fact it was a voluntary surrender by Mr. Crit- tendon ot a considerable interest in his very prosperous business to five of his ola empl...

A contemporary, The Farmer's Voice, saye: His fortune is monumental of a series of the most gigantic robber- ies ever recorded in the annals of history. The winnings of Captain Kidd and Black Beard the pirates, Sir Francis Drake the buccaneer, Francisco Pizarro in Peru, and Lord Clive in the East Indies be- come puny and mean when com- pared with the colossal pillage of this man Rockefeller, which has been scooped in with perfect safety by this deacon of the Baptist church now in good and regular standing. "Scooped in with perfect safe- ty," means that it has been ob- tained "legally," a term which to- day covers more iniquity than passed in review under the eye of Omnipotence from the creation of Adam to the deluge. The land is full of "legal" scoundrelism, "legal" fraud androbberies,villainies whic...

E^ant,.- Vol. XI, No. 38. | DALLAS, TEXAS, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 1892. | Whole No. 548 iMioisr THE ROOT OF ALL OUR WOES. The inordinate love of money may be the root of all moral evil, but there can be no doubt that the want of money is the root of all political and com- mercial evil. Money is the very life-blood of civilization. Since the palmy days of Rome civilization has advanced or retrograded in exact ratio with the abundance or scarcity of a sound circulating medium. At the dawn of the Christian era the metalic money of the Roman empire, the bulk of the money of the world, was nearly $2,000,000,000. This vast &um had sunk until at the beginning of the ninth century there was less than one-fifth of one billion of money in the entire civilized world—about $160,000,000. Popula- tion decreased, the light of civilization almost went out in savage darkness. The...

SOUTHKBJi IKBCUKI. Sept. M,189* ant, and out of this $16 per month of depreciated money the soldier had to aid in paying the sold interest on the bonds owned by the bankers. Who but Shylock can look these facts in the face and not blush for shame at the acts of our law-makers? The government should have continued to issue and use the kind of money which it first adopted. This would have compelled the bankers in the end to turn their money loo«e at a reasonable rate of interest—not more than 10 per cent at most. This course would have prevented the creation of our great national debt after the war was over, and we would to-day ha?e been out of debt and a free and happy people. CONTRACTION AND BANKRUPTCY. But, alaM this is not yet the worst of it! Notwithstanding the foregoing iniquitous laws against tbe common people, and the ravages of war, the country in 1866 smiled with prosperity such as hud never before been known.

' ■ <r ti SOUTHERN MJSHCUKY. N*|ro lupr«m oy. For the apeeial benefit of those Cleveland democrats who make it a profession to loaf about ard talk about negro supremacy, social equality, etc., we give the following extract from a letter of Fred Doug- las, the notorious negro with a white wife, on Cleveland's treat- ment of him while holding office in Washington. "I am a republican, and I did all I could to defeat Mr. Cleveland. He was under no political obliga- tions to me whatever. Yet I held the office of recorder nearly a whole year under his administration, an office bv law held not for a term, but solely at the pleasure of the president. He could have removed me at his pleasure at any time after his inauguration. When he rsked for my resignation he simply asked me to set a time when it would be agreeable for me to tender it. I did set the time, and when that time arrived I sent in my resigna- tion. His manner to me was very courteous, and I have nothing whatever to complain ...

} -V í Sept. 29 1892. SOUTHERN MJSHCUKV. ▲ Conservative View. In the San Antonio Express "P. A. B.," writing from Austin says: In the present precarious situa- tion of Texas politics past affilia- tion with either democrats or republicans— names once repre- senting certain, but now uncertain, and indifinite measures and princi- ples—in no rational sense justifies our support of either, nor does it justify us in withholding our sup- port from the nominee ot the con- stituency advocating certain principles and policies which he elaims to be essential and just, and receives no answer to his defense ot them but scoffing and evasion. While Judge Nugent's ideas of national policy may differ materi- ally from the stereotyped, parroted ideas heretofore furnished, second hand, to the credelous masses, his views on that score have no rela- tion to state politics, and no one who thoroughly knows the man will doubt his peculiar adaptabili- ty to the present crisis in the administration of impen...

Sept. 22, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 THE LINES DRAWN. By the action ot the Fort Worth republican convention the battle is narrowed down to a contest be- tween Clark and Nugent, with Nugent far in the lead. This sit- uation is clearly proven by the fol- lowing indisputable facts: It has long been the law govern- ing democratic county conventions in Texas to base the represantation upon the vote cast for the demo- cratic candidate for governor at each precinct represented at the last preceding state election. Such was the case in the late race for the democratic nomination for governor between Hogg and Clark. A canvass of the vote for 1890 will show that nineteen-twentieths of the urban voters of all parties voted for Hogg. A canvass of the vote for Hoog and Clark in the county conventions recently held develops the fact that Hogg carried ninetenths of the country primaries That Clark had practically no fol- lowing except in the towns and cities. A careful canvass of the peoples party,...
