V Nor. 24 1892 . SOUTHERN MERCURY. J y Communism or Capital—The Real Issue Before the People. HON. JOHN DAVIS IN ARENA. The current politics of today were preoeded by the current poli- tics of other days. Advanoe3 in politiC3 are made step by step through organizad parties, which gradually arise in consequence of great public grievances. Without the existence of grie vano is there caa be no new party. All history attests that men never right their wrongs as long as the wrongs are suff arable. No man can build a new party at will. It is far more probable that a new party, rising and growing through great public exigencies, will build or find anew man as the champion to enforca its demand3. All political progress is mad a through new parties. Men ad- vanea, but party organizations do not. Tne first political party in Amarica was favorable to mon- archy. Cáildren were taught to lisp "His Majesty," and "God save the King!" was the song of loyal- ty. From kingly tyranny cama a party dema...

Y Hot- 24, 1898. SOUTHERN MERCURY. V— THE CLARK DEMOCRACY IN COUNCIL. The Clark leaders held a confer ence at Waco on last Saturday. Fully 200 of the most prominent democrats in Texas were present. After Chairman Matlock delivered his address, among other important utterances during the conference, Judge George Clark said: "If I understand the object of this meeting, it is not to indulge in vain regrets over the past, but to take council with one another for future action. Speaking for myself and in the presence of the true and tried democracy of Texas, I have no regret to express over the recent past. I had the distin- guished honor conferred upon me by you and other patriots,to carry the flag of true democracy over the state. While I may not have carried it as I should, I did the best I could. I haye nothing to take back; my eye is turned to the fu- ture and my back to the past. Where the fight is raging and the flag is waving, there will I be found, and I know that these splen- d...

10 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Not. 24,1892 Contraction. When any nation has a large amount of 4 papar obligations in oiroulation doing duty as money, the gold basis finanoial theory re- quires contraction of this currency to meet the limited gold supply of the world. In 1873 the United States changed from the silver standard to the gold standard. Silver had been the standard of money measurem ant from April, 1792, to February, 1873. The unit of money was the silver dollar of 371J grains pure silver. The amount of alloy does not change this. The alloyed or coin silver dollar is 412\ grains. The gold dollar of 25.8 grains was then substituted for the old silver standard. The result is evident and practi - cal that under a gold standard it became necesisary to contract the paper circulation. Senator Plumb, of Kansas, in a speech in the Senate in 1886, said: "For years the national bank circulation, and the volume of money outstanding, has been de- clining. "The population has increased, busines...

The living room of the work- man's cottage, furnished with a few articles of cheap furniture. The plain, whitewashed walls held a few common pictures, and paper curtains were hung to the win- dows. In the center stood a square pine table, covered with a white cloth, duly set for thanksgiving dinner. At the head sat the father, a stalwart'man of forty or so, whose rugged faca and hard, knotty hands told plainly that he earned his bread by persistent toil. Dawn the side at his left sat three boys, while mother, with baby on her lap, and an older girl by her side, filled up the group to the right in readiness for dinner.

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Those who can and do control themselves can command others. The goddess of liberty wrings her hand8in despair, and patriots tremble for the future of this gov- ernment. ► ^— Tiie report of the secretary- treasurer of the Knights of Labor to the general assembly shows that including the balance on hand at the beginning of the fiscal year, July 1,1891, the total receipts oí of the order have been, $60,614.19 and the total expenditures $59,- 748.82, leaving a balance on hand July 1, 1892, of $865.37. The re- port shows that the membership oí the order has increased slightly during the past year, and has now over 260,000 members in good standing. The republicans of Texas put up a man for congress in the 13th, 10;h, 9th, 11th, 8th, thus securing a walk over for the demo- cratic nominees, hence a solid democratic delegation frcm Texas.

Hence, my fellow sovt reigns, you will not allow yourselves to be further deceived bv the single gold standard money thieves, who are trying to make you believe that paper money is not good, if gold is not behind it for redemp- tion purposes. Ever bear in mind this great truth, that exchanging a paper doll or for a gold or silver dollar is not redemption, but aim ply swapping dollars, and every dollar is and must be of equal value, no matter of what material it is made, so Jong a i the issuing power receives and disburees it ai its face value.

SOUTHERN MEKt'UKY. Dec. 1, 1892 AN OPEN LETTER To the Farmers' Allianco arid the General Public. The Farmers' Allianco, as an or ganization, has reached a very crit ical period in its history. I was present at ttífc organization of the the first National Alliance at Waco, Tex., in January 1887, and since that day have put in my whole time working for that cause, and have discharged the duties of the most responsible office up to the 18th ult., when I withdrew from official connection with the Supreme Council. My reasons for having withdrawn from a body which rep- resents a cause I love beeter than any other, I deem it right and pru- dent to make to the public. My action in withdrawing from the body was not the result of an- ger or disappointment, it was not a new born idea or a hasty resolve— it was the result of at least a year of calm and careful deliberation, coupled with a determination to serve the true interests of the Far- mers' Alliance at the risk of any personal sacrifice....

Dec. 1. 1892. SOUTHERN MfiRClJRl'. A- V- omist. In view of this I did "open my head" and take a very promi- nent part in the meeting, and so determined was that lobby and steering committee to choke wo- man's suffrage and immediate po- litical action binding all the bodies represented, down the throats of that convention that I had to call the alliance delegates in caucus with 256 votes, which, it seemed certain, would withdraw from the body. When I did that they at onca yielded, but so incensed were they that, immediately following the meeting, several of the most prominent papers, in that party made violent attacks upon me. The St. Louis Chronicle immediately after the adjournment of the con- ference meeting contained a re- markable article which it claimed was made on the authority of Chairman Taubeneck and George P. Washburn, of Boston, Mass., a member of the executive committee of the peoples party. The reporter who wrote the article has since made affidavit that he wrote subst...

Time was when no man would be scorned because he earned his bread by the sweat of his face. What was a curse for the father of Cain was a credit to the man in Columbia. Toil- stained hands and muscles har- dened in life's activities were war- rants to respect. Mountains locked their treasurer till labor forced a way into their vaults and spread the ransom of princes broadcast to the world. Forests stood like arm- ies, rank on rank, and halted prog- ress until labor laid them low and swept a pathway to the setting sun. Earth hoarded her riches, starving the people who waited for bread, till she heard the tread of labor above her, felt the coming of a royal guest, and then she threw her lard- ers open, piling corn and wine on groaning boards till feasts extin- guished famine.

't Dec. 1 1892 SOUTHERN MKltODttY. 9 J. t «"N V PLAIN FACTS. The peculiar environment of the Alliance during the heated political campaign just closed has clearly demonstrated the fact that there are many enrolled in its ranks who have misunderstood the scope and aim of the organization. These misguided zealots have compre- hu nded no higher or nobler mission for the order than that it should develop with a full fledged partisan comhinationr that its usefulness will cease when through its instru- strumentality the people shall have been educated sufficiently to vote intelligently on the issues that are before the American people. They forget that education is a never ceasing work—that it must continue as long as men exist—so long as governments stand. To subordin- ate it to the level of political parti- sanship is to outrage its primal principle. The friction developed at the re- cent session of the Supreme Coun- c.l at Memphis is a striking proof of our position. In that body, comp...
