o I oí. 2i) 189 . dOUTIUUMt JUUM3CB1. Who Is Responsible P Mr. Editor: Will you grant roe space to give the lie to some cf the slanders that are going the rounds oí the lying press about James B. Weaver. Now, I know whereof I speak. I was a sergeant in Company A, Second regiment Iowa infantry volunteers, the same that Colonel Weaver commanded. Gen. G. M. Dodge, to whose command the Second Iowa regi- ment (Weaver's) was attached while he was on duty at Pulaski, Tenn., issued the order to assess the citizens of Giles county for funds and food to feed the refugees who were congregated around the Federal army at that place. A? far as the cotton twist is concerned I know nothing. As to the hog charge, I was in it. When we went to Pulaski in the fall of '63, there was a man out east of town that had a large drove of fat hogs. Gen. G. M. Dodge took them in and fed them to the boys. Turkeys, Weaver did not for- age. But if Mrs. Williams or any other woman had turkeys the chances are that th...

Oct. 20, 1894. SOUTHERN MERCURY. THE CRISIS. Can it be possible that the wholesale stuffing oí the ballot boxes daring the recent elections in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida and Georgia is in conformity to a gen- eral plan, concocted in Wall street and backed by New England money, to stifle the will of the people, and thereby perpetuate the rule of the dollar in these United States! Were such not the care New England democrats long since, in self defense, would have denounced these frauds perpetrated by their brethren in Alabama They certainly cannot expect to maintain their integrity by wink- ing at and condoning such crimes; nor can any one believe they would have done so unless the re- publicans of New England were fully in the swim. In fact, the con- tinued silence of the leading jour- nals of both the democratic and the republican parties proves there is a deeper and baser motive se- cretly inspiring their utterances. Such demonstrations put the peo- ple north and south on notice t...

If a man will not admit that the republic of the United States is in great peril, it must be because he is ignorantfof the facts existing, is unfair in his mind or is incapable of reaeoning on the general subject. For tke danger is imminent and closely impending. Indeed, the nation has the whirl of danger itself. The strikes for the pa*t fifteen years are the syrrp- torrs of fatal disease. And with the passing years there is increased disease in the great body politic. Worse and worse the natiocal patient grows. The present condition of the country was not the condition prior to the war, Wo had very few rich men. There had been little olass legislation, and there were no monopolies. And prior to that time 1 rccall no case of a technical "strike." There were no "tramps" in the country and no complaints made by laborers about "stating wages." When the war began the country was in a condition of gen...

Labor has been robbed and will continue to be robbed until the people know enough to vote for themselves and not for the parties controlled by Wall street and the politicians. No system ever robbed the many for the benefit of the few that did not thrive on the ignorance of the masses. The Democrats of Con- necticut don't say a thing about the Chicago platform. Free raw materials is their great cry. There is no such thing as free raw mate- rials but God's broad earth I (Ap- plause.) The tariff is a dead issue.

SOUTHERN MERCURY. V- The Situation Today. Extract from Gov. Pennoyer's, of Ore- gon, Address. An impartial survey of our na- tional affairs discloses the undeni- able fact that the federal govern- ment has been for years and is now under the domination, not of the people, but of the plutocracy. Its legislation has inured for nearly a third of a century past to the ben efit of the rich. They have been the favored beneficiaries of its generous bounties. By tariff leg- islation manufacturers of protected industries have become wealthy baroEs and by financial legislation bondholders and bankers have be- come money lords. Munificent grants of land, sufficient in extent to comprise empires, besides larg esses of money have been bestowed on i ailroad corporations, whereby railway magnates have become Í)otent rulers in the land, while rom the transmission of intelli- gence, a right and duty that belongs to the federal government alone, other individuals have obtained immense wealth and infl...

Oct. 20, 1898. SOUTHERN 1EBUCB1. 16 V~ Gon. Henry E. McCulloch Warns the Populists. When we "shell the woods" and "stir the air," we find the ' breeze" in voice full of rumors of the withdrawal of Judge Nugent as our standard bearer lor governor. All done for the purpose of es- tranging our people, and I predict that the nearer we approach the day of election the more these reports will be circulated, and the more tangible attempt to make them; so much so, that I would not be surprised to find that within from 2 to 4 days before the election that the false report of Judge Nugent's withdrawal should be heralded all over Texas by wire, and that our people had turned, or were turn- ing over to Hogg or Clark. Hogg in his opening speech, says: "Clark and Nugent leaders speak from the same platiorm in harmony. They are now smiling and winking at each other. W ill they not soon embrace and kiss? Mark the pre- diction, one of them will withdraw before the election, for there is but little d...

A few weeks before the election Edi- tor Howell, oí the Constitution, went to New Yoik and laid the situation before the goldbug boo dlers. He succeeded in impress- ing them wilh the importance of boodle in Georgia. Before Howell went to New York the Democrats of Georgia were in a perfect fren- zy ; they trembled as they beheld the mighty uprising of the people. When Howell returned they as- sumed a confident air and com- menced to claim the earth. They declared that the negro would vote the Democratic ticket—this of course was to pave the way for the corruption fund. They bought the negro at a very dear price and where the Georgia negro was insuf- ficient they imported their dusky brothers from South Carolina. Uesides all this the count out was liberally indulged in. One hundred thousand dollars acccrding to Col. Livingston was ready to be used in Wa...

Whole No. 546. A CENTER SHOT! >— > Hon. John M. M core's, Ex-Seore- tary of State, Address to the People. Fellow citizens: The democratic party, to which the people of Texas have hitherto for so long a time implicitly trusted, has become a house divided against itself and each its factions, each others's worst accuser. Can either be safely followed? Let us consider this question with the deliberate pur- pose of ascertaining the truth, and acting upon it if ascertained. Texas is not a leading commer- cial or manufacturing state, but is a leading agricultural state. For years agriculture has been de- pressed, and more recently its sister industry. The other industries of the state, being so largely depend ent on these, have suffered through sympathy. Now it so happens when industries do...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Oct. 27,18* a substantial continuance of pres ent policies. The very enemies of the third parly should desire to see it poll a large vote in order, at least, to arouse the other to a lively sense of duty, and to teach them that parties exist for other pur- poses than the spoils of victors. Again, we are taught by emi- nent democratic and republican authority that there is an inade- quate money supply, and here is the left wing of the Texas democ- racy proposing to re-establish state banks of issue. Now, if banks of issue are a good thing, why return to state banks? Why not extend, enlarge and liberalize the national banking system, universally en- dorsed and approved by experts? In the bank discussion do we not see again the tendency toward in- sincerity, not only in that section having upon itself the smell of an asses' stable, but in other direc- tions, both democratic and repub- lican? It is admitted the paper ot the banks is good. Upon what basis does the circu...

Oct. 27. 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY, 3 is on—upon which side are you ? There are one or two specific demands, to which, in view of some false teachings, I desire to call your special attention. Most of the populist platform has been endorsed by no less ademocrat than Geo. Clark, and much has been bod- ily stolen by the Hogg party. But the demand for government owner- ship of railroads is bitterly op- posed and its merits belied. I will not (for time presses) go into an elaborate and detailed ¡discus- sion ot this demand, nor quote as I might a long Array of figures in its support. Suffice it to say that investigation demonstrates that government ownership would cheapen transportation, do away with favoritism, discrimination and robbery on the King's high- ways, hasten the time when the la- borer's hours shall be shortened, dignify industry, spare life and fa- cilitate social inter communication. The first and usual objection to this policy is that we cannot own them because we are not r...

wm>r, «yw SOUTHERN MERCVBJT. Oct. 27 ¿89t V M Reasons for Enlisting Under the Populist Banner. L. L. HUDSON. Democratic principles, in all ages, have been the underlying principles of justice—the simple glory of freedom's faith. Deeply imbued in the foundation of every free government, the success of these principles is of paramount importance to any human organi- zation or any party name. We have today a politioal anomaly. A party that has forsaken almost every democratic principle, yet clings with consummate tenacity to the democratic name and under the shade of a respectability that came with age and honorable use- fulness, in better days, strives by all the cunning known to dema- gogueism to foist upon an unsus- pecting people a faith that is not true. We have another party that in a large part embraces the tried principles of true democracy that in antebellum times, guiaed by honest impulses, gave this country the best government in the annals of the world. Dazed with the lu...

America is not destined to become the home of the oppressed. The inspiration of liberty is drawn from tne very air we breathe. Baok through the memorable past the hand of God has ever been ap- parent in'the course of American events. It was not through our revolutionary forefathers that a na- tion with inexhaustible resources was conquered,and American inde- pendence established, but through God. Our ancestors were used as instruments in his hands to ac- complish a purpose—the emanci- pation of the human race. The work is not yet done. Tyrany still exists. From every part of the globe comes the cry of oppression. The world is baptized in iniquity. Justice and equality are effaced from the statute books of every nation. Tyrany supreme holds sway. The church has not escaped the maelstrom of profanity, but the cries of th...

H f SOUTHERN MERCUBY. A CENTEH SHOT. (Coutinuod from pago 3.) the market is off. It is nearly al ways off', because we have not enough millionaires to consume the work of shop and field, and the other folks, however much they would like to, are too poor to pay. for them. Hence the cry of over production. Thus the margin of cultivation is destroyed, the poor fellow is left nothing, and returns home to curse town people for robbing him. Of course, also, he cannot pay his store bill, and the merchant goes to .cursing the farmer for not paying his debts. Hence arises the friction between town and country which dema- gogues,seeing, still further increase, until they are arrayed in bitter hostility toward each other. Be- sides, the merchant, being unable to collect, goes'to the wall, and in very bad years panics ensue and we all go down in common ruin. By this system we are impover- ishing and ruining our people. AccordiDg to the report of Mr. Hollingsworth, our commissioner of agricultur...

to Reasons for the Anti Option Bill. A subject of the utmost impor- tance to the'farmers of this state, and to tbe South generally, and which has not received the atten- tion of our public press and the people which its gravity demands, is the Anti Option Bill now pend- ing in congress. This bill is aimed at "future" dealing, a species of gambling in the great agricultural products of this country, which has grown into a monstrous evil, and has inflioted incalculable dam- age on the cotton growers of the South. The conditions of the bill are directed at the seller of "futures," the "short seller," as he is called, who does not own or have anv control of the product he sells. He must take out a license at a cost of $1000 vearly; must give a bond of $40,000, and must pay a tax of 5 cents per pound on all cotton and 20 cents per bushel on all grain that he sells as "futures." It is designed to exter- minate "future" gambling, but does not interrupt legitimate trade. We presume a lack o...
