y . . %' - Sept. 22, 1892. SOUTHERN ftEttCUHY. 11 The Latest from Alabama. In an interview with a reporter Mr. Kolb, the people's party can- didate for governor, said with em- phasis: "I have been elected governor and I am going to be governor. Although of the 175 newspapers in the state but six oí them were for me. I carried the state by 45,000 majority and received 25,000 ma- jority of the white vote. The Jones faction simply controlled the ma- chinery, stuffed the ballot boxes and counted me out. Take the fourteen black belt counties. I carried them by 25,000 majority. Yet they have been counted as giving Jones 20,000 majority* I carried this county by 1,500 ma- jority. Yet they gave Jones 6,000 majority—more votes than were polled. It was the same way all over the state, and I tell you our people are not going to submit to it. I am going to be governor. I will contest before the legislature and I think it will decide that I was elected, but if not there is an- other way to get i...

Sixty-one of the delegates at Mineapolis were in the rebel army; they voted for Harrison. Is Har- rison in favor of traitors? Dare any old party papers try to sinirch the character of Weaver? Not one. To all let me say, tear down the bloody shirt. Break a solid North, break a solid South, stop strikes and disband Pinkerton murderers. Do this by your votes. To the young man who will cast his first vote in 1892, let me say a word in conclusion: You can't afford to remain on the old rotten hulks, for they are sinking. Get aboard the car of progress it's freighted with new truths and will roll on crushing out old errors as certainly as God rules. God won't let the buzzards eat the flesh any longer from the bones of the nation. Get aboard our car or you will he left in the political .mire, for a tornado is coming. W...

16 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Sept. 22, 1892 < LET THOSE WHO DESIRE, EXPLAIN- The annual report of the comp troller of Texas for the year end ing August 31,1891, presents some very interesting figures. By the report the total value ot property rendered for taxation in Dallas county was $40,199,070, while the money reported on hand was on ly $212,295. In Kauft'man county the property values were $7,105, 694, with cash on hand, $530,144. Galveston comes up with $25,524,- 280 of property values and $1,987,- 085 in cash. Tarrant county ren- dered $21,291,360 of property for taxation, but only had $38,155 in cash on hand. These figures are taken by the comptroller from the assessors rolls of these counties. Now let us see what the report of the United States comptroller oí the currency, Yol. 2, pages 568 et. seq. ot date October 2,1890, shows the amount of money to have been.

The fallacies which contradic- tionists are driven to in their at- tempts to convince American pro- ducers that it is to their interests to maintain a small, rather than a large volume of money in circula- tion brings a smile of contempt on the faces of intelligent men. It there is any one thing that the producer understands it is that a large volume of money in circu lation produces high wages and good times, and that a small vol- ume is always attended with low prices and hard times. These facts the people are as familiar with as they are with sunshine and rain. John C. Calhoun, who is recog- nized as one of the most profound statesmen and philosophors of this or any other country, maintains that there should be in ci...

Said he: "Treasury notes are legal tender for everything for which the government makes thefh receivable. 2d Mason, pages 1 to 18. This was confirmed in the celebrated greenback cases as a matter of fact the colonies before the revolution. The states after the revolution issued legal tender pa- per money, and at a latter date surrendered these rights and low- ers to the federal government, hence there can be no doubt as to the government's constitutional au- thority to make money out of any material it deemed proper. The next objection is: "The gov- ernment has no constituional au- thority to loan money to the people under any circuinstances." To this we reply the government has be m exercising this authority since 18L6up to the present hour indirectly, and any one knows the government can do directly what it can legally do indirectly.

Every one agrees that if the products of the soil of the south and west were manufactured in those districts it would augment their prosperity. Three things are necessary to make manufactories successful: 1. Raw material. 2. Cheap money and 8, reliable labor. The first we have in abundance in the south and west, the second the subtreasurv plan provides for most ampl v, and the third will always f e found when good wages are paid. Let this plan be put into opera tion and the manufacturers will transfer their factories, operatives and dependents near to the place of production of raw material. The operatives would consume all of our supplies—garden, poultry and dairy products. Think of the mil- lions of dollars this plan will save to our people, that is now wasted on bagging and ties, freights and usury. Free traders (so called) ask that we be permitted to ship ou...

I must confess that in all my past life I have never felt the deep anxiety, uncertainty, distrust, hopes and fears, that I feel at the present time, in regard to the real condition and future destiny of our country. The great magic lanterns of political leaders and organiza- tions are flashing pictures upon the canvass with such rapidity that the eye scarcely has time to observe one, until another takes its place; no time left for contemplation— hence the mind is left to stand in wonder (and would to God I could .say,"in love and praise," but alas! alas!") and we sometimes feel like exclaiming, "Watchman, tell us of the night—what its signs ot prom- ise are! Is there a balm in Gilead? Is there a star oí Bethlehem?" Early last spring, as everybody in Texas knows, a heated canvass commenced...

V Sept. 29, 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. The Old State Banking System. // T' LEE CALLAWAY. Since the convention that met August 17th and nominated J. S. Hogg for governor, alleged demo- cratic nominee, there has been considerable talk among politicians about the old state banking sys- tem, as suggested by section 10 of the platform adopted by that con- vention. In order to misguide the people on the question of our banking system, aud to divert their atten- tion, if possible, from the subtreas ury plan submitted by the farmers of America to the politicians of the world for criticism, this assem bled body of plutocracy, requests of the voters of Texas a return to the old state banks that preyed upon the pockets of the people in times gone by, which we hope will never return. Among'otlier objections to the state banks, we beg to submit these: 1. The state banks issued bills, or "promises to pay," based upon coin, and the law limited their is- suing of these bills three to one, that is, the...

I know, and so does every intelligent man and woman, know, that the same principles and the same spirit exists to-day that existed oyer 1800 years ago, the day that Paul was arraigned before the Sinhedrim council at Jerusalem. We also know that the same principles and spirit have existed from that day until the present day. The same "council" has been in constant sitting, and is fitting today, and men and women have been arraigned before it all along down through the ages. They have been "beaten with many itripés, imprisoned" and burned at the stake for conscience sake. It is a fact that there is today in this "land of the free and home of the bravo" "a Sandherim council" who are promulgating pnn- oiples and issuing decrees. Let us observe passing events.

"V' Sept. 29, 1892. SOUTHEKN MKKCUKY. 9 T HOGGISM SHOWN UP. Those who believe that Gov. Hogg is the champion of the labor- ing classes should call to mind a few facts connected with his past record. In 1886 the Farmer's Alliance and other labor organizations de- clared in favor of a railway com- mission. The idea was very un- popular at that time in legal cir- cles, and Governor, Hogg was no exception. During the session of the 21st legislature a railway com- mission bill was discussed for many days; members who favored such a measure waited on Mr. Hogg who was then attorney general, and asked his opinion. Mr. Hogg informed them that he could draw a bill, not longer than his finger, that would effectually settle the difficulty. By request he did so, and the bill was passed, and after- wards was known as the "anti trust law," out of which Hogg manufac- tured so much political thunder, and from which the people expe- rienced no relief. By the first of the year of 1890, through the eff...
