Oct. 27, 1 *. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 11 \4 I If I I w \ m < Ff V Wring Their Heads Off. It is painful to note the absolute indifference the old party orators affect when invited to divide time in debate with the populist orators. Too utterly absurd and too posi tively awful to consider, you know. Getting down with the common herd is not to their liking. Oh, no! It reminds us of the story told upon the good old deacon. One Sunday morning the good deacon and his dear little wife started for church. Both weie arrayed in their best bib and tucker. Just as they reached the garden gate the wife exclaimed: "Say, pa. 1 dew believe you for- got to feed the calves this morn- ing." "I guess that's bo, ma," replied the deacon as he ruefully contem- plated the hungry calves and the prospect of changing all his clothes in order to feed them. "It must be did, pa," remarked the wife urgently, "it won't do to let them go hungry this hot day while we sit in church enjoying the Lord's day." "Well, by gu...

Oct 29, 1898. SOUTHERN MEROUBV. IS I 1 Í& Help me or I am defeated, is the wailing cry of Hogg to the peoples party advocates. The governor will learn that there is more harm in one hour's babbling of a fool, than in a year of dis- creet silence, especially when of the size of peoples "breeches." He has found out wheie headquarters are, but too late! Wall street is determined that the war prejudice shall never end. They are determined the South and Northwest never shall unite. They are determined to keep them in hostile camps. They have sohemed to keep them divided so the votes of one section will kill the vote of the other. They will spend mill- ions before the people shall be free. Mark this! Ex-Congressman üallentine, Theo Harris, Rev. Robert Caldwell and other citizens of Pulaski, Tenn, testify that the reports re- cently sent out from that city charging General Weaver withva rious crimes during the war are infamous falsehoods. They say they were personally acquainted with G...

V Oct. 21, 1899. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 16 ALLIANCE NOTES. 1.1 Transportation at oopt is the solution of the railroad problem. "Truth is the wine evolved from the fermentation of thought." Only three out of eight of the farmers of America own ¿their homes. Organize, educate and co-oper- ate. "The truth shall make you free." The most treacherous man on earth is the man with a face on both sides of his head. The adoption of the initiative and referendum system of legisla- tion by the people is the shortest road to genuine reform. Says'(ieneral^Fielda: "We are •?|iot in favor of the force bill, but we are going to see that every vote put in tne box is counted. Land, money and transportation are the iesues. Until these are settled minor matters should rest, f We need all our ammunition for big game.

16 SOUTHERN MERCURY* Over Production. by laura l. belen. I hare worked and toiled, both early and late, To keep the wolf from the door; I have eaten dried bacon and rough corn cake, And patched till my fingers are sore. I have made over garments too old to be worn, And used buttons of every construction; And I have worn shoes that were old and torn— Still Cleveland cries over production! I wonder, I have raised so much cotton, That my dresses can't number but one, This overproduction is so thin and rotten, There will something else have to be done. I think if there were more money, Scattered o'er the United States, That laborers,could eat biscuit and honey, Instead of bacon and corn cakc. But how can we get that blessing? Not by trusting in Bonnie or Cleave, For they have been lying up resting And drinking champaigne with Steve. While we were toiling and sweating, Waiting for the good they promised to do, They were joined with Wall street in bettering The price of cotton in 1892. So...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Nor. 8,181 such votes in Texas this year. Then there are a large number of republicans who will not vote for Judge Clark, at the orders of the republican leaders. I have assur- ances from all over Texas that fully 35 per cent of this vote will be cast for Judge* Nugent and our ticket generally. We have fully 15,000 late republicans enrolled in our ftlubs, and they will be less than one-half of those who will vote with us. The German vote is claimed by the Clark men as a unit for Judge CJark. This claim is positively without foundation in fact. We have fully 18 per cent of the Germans actually in line with us in our clubs, and we have the positive assurance of a large number of leading Germans in different parts of the state that fully 30 per cent of the entire Gtrman vote of Texas will be with us.

From the primaries to and including even our elections for the highest officer in the American republic, the corruption of our ballot is general and startling, and not the exception. This in the faoe of the faot that every dishon* est vote oast under our system of Ígovernment is a step toward revo* ution, an assault upon the very bulwark ot our liberties, a forging of the chains oí political slavery, and a sad requiem over the future grave of our commercial and polit- ical liberties. Nothing else that we have, honor, possess or inherit, has cost mankind so much blood, so many widows and ophans, so much oí national debt and waste, so many heartaches and woes, as that free and unrestricted ballot; and yet today, and for years past, that same precious heritage of the freeman, that vitalizing quality and lile blood of a republic, is sola at the polls like pigs in the mar - ket, at so much per head...

If you have not declared yourso 1 is it because you dread such thm0¿? You know it took courage as well as conviction to enable you to leave your old party and unite with the new. Then remember that every member of the people's party, whether he is a nominee for office or not, has felt and endured all that you have, and with motives just as pure as your own. A re- form party,to accomplish anything, must nave candidates in the field (and no radical or permanent re- form oan be accomplished in a re- public without building a party for that purpose).

To the County Chairmen of the People's Party—Your attention is hereby called to certain provisions of our election law, the importance of which will be readily seen. 1. Voters are required to vote in the eleotion precinct in which they reside at the time of the elec- tion, and they must have resided in the state twelve months next preceding the election and at least six months in the county or dis- trict in which they offer to vote. No definite period of residence is required in the election precinct— a day's residence is sufficient if ac- companied with the intention to remain permanently therein. 2. When the right of a voter to vote is challenged, he may, unless seeking to vote in a city of 10,000 population or more, under the law, establish such right by his own oath taken before the managers of the eleotion, and when he does so establish his right the mana...

>/ ¥<*▼. S 1892. SOUTHERN MERCURY. PLUTAJtCH'S PHILOSOPHY. The Masse* Cannot Be Kept in the Dark Forever. For the first time in the history of this country men have been indicted for "nigh treason "because they defended themselves against freebooters and professional assas- sins. It is charged that the men of Homestead ; committed this crime—-which is punishable with death by making' "war" upon the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Although the charge is perfectly ridiculous—in the face of suca crimes as perpetrated by the kid gloved mob at New Orleans, who stormed a prison and slaughtered a number of people who were un- der the "protection of the city au- thorities; and the greater crime of the Southern Confederacy, none of whom were evor charged with treason—the very fact that such indictment could have been found proves what contempt the labor organizations of this country have brought upon themselves by studiously refraining from asserting their rights as freeman, who, if they...

Not- 3, 189*. SOUTHERN MERCURY. r CAMPAIGN METHODS. The campaign now on is devel- oping an alarming disregard for "truth and veracity' in men who pose as moulders of publio opin ion. It is to be regretted that such is the fact. The time wss when the newspaper press of the country could be relied on to a'great ex- tent for com ct reports of the oc- currences of the day in a plain and truthful manner. Then the issues in politics were discussed honestly andlegitimately. How times have changed! No sooner has an issue been raised or a candidate for any position named, than the vocabu- lary oí slander, slime, malice and falsehood is resorted to in order to carry a point or attain success. Proof oí this can be seen in almost any paper that finds its way through the mails. Almost every click of the telegraph carries a message calculated to mislead the unsuspecting. Since the great gathering of the industrialists at Omaha no means have been un- tried, no methods untested, that would bring od...

lü SOUTHERN MERCURY. NOT. Z, 189 IN A NUTSHELL. The Silver Question Made Plain to Honest Enquirers. GEO. C. WARD. ' Id England the parliament has passed an act which decrees that every ounce of gold offered for sale to the Bank of Eogland shall bear a price of £3 17s 9d, or just about $18.66. By our ownjmone- tary laws, we, the people of the United States, have decreed that 25.8 grains of gold (nine-tenths fine) shall constitute one dollar, or a lepal unit of value. Thus, both in England and in the United States, gold has given to it and im- parted by law, a legal, ficticious and arbitrary value, into which the commercial value has been merged, so that there is no such thing as a true commercial value of gold ex- isting at this day. The gold stand- ard, or unit of value is then alto gether and entirely a "6it" unit, or dollar. It has been repeatedly stated by those in a position to know that the quantity oí gold thus contained in a fiat gold dol- lar, costs to produce, or mine, just...

In studying the national plat- forms, I find one of the greatest bulldozing sections in the national democratic platform of 1892, I ever read. Do you actually favor the free and unlimited coinage of silver? No 1 a thousand times, no! Listen to what one of their organs says: "The silver men on the platform oommittee at Chicago were modest in their claims. They did not ask ¡tor such a plank as would entirely satisfy the south- ern and western states." They sought merely the recog- nition of silver as money instead of a mere commodity. Mr. Whitney, the present rep- resentative of Mr. Cleveland and the manager of his campaign, was present during the deliberations upon the subject. He admitted in an interview afterward that he was there look iog after Mr. Cleveland's interests, and boasted that he had gotten what he...
