During the recent campaign in California, the people's candidates prepared a statement from Patti- son's minority report to congress, which discloses the following: The Union Pacific railroad cost for its construction $38,824,000,and the company issued stocks and bonds to themselves to the amount of $109,814,812, making a clear profit of $70,990,812.

14 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Dec. 1, 1892 Concentrated Wealth a Danger- ous Element. History and experience has fully shown that private riohes and the combination of wealthy men con- stitute the most oppressive and dangerous element in human soci- ety. Efforts to accumulate a reas- onable competency are praisewor- thy, and legislation which renders such accumulation possible is right and just; but when laws are en- acted or a condition of things is permitted to exist whereby the accumulation ot such colossal for- tunes as are now met with in most of the chief cities of the Union are made possible, there is certainly something wrong. The power which vast riches gives is sure to engender, in almost any person so favored, an undue degree of selfish ness and ambition, i dangerous alike to the idividual and to the community in which he lives. Doubly dangerous is it when such accumulations are so numerous as to admit of combination,influenced by the use of money, or the influ- ence which money i...

Dd c. 1 1893. SOUTHERN MERCUHT. IS A m r A Man of Honor. The Palestine Times, a demo- cratic paper, has this to say of Hon. Tho3. L. Nugent: "The candidate for governor on the peoples party ticket in the re- cent election stands higher in the respect and esteem of thousands of people than any other man in Texas and justly so. He has no equal in • the true knowledge of political questions that can compare with him in honesty of intentions and fidelity to his convictions, and who holds such deep rooted love in the hearts of a struggling people. "Not one among the hundreds of office-seekers,threadbare politicians, wire puliere,place hunters and pub- lic blood-suckers, is it fit to be named in connection with him. A thoughtless press, in general censures Judge Nugent and his fol- lowers, but they cannot point out a man that has added more dignity and grandeur to the state than Mr. Nugent—the William Tell of Tex- as. His conduct during the late campaign was grand. He resorted to no false...

[Applause.] Those 106 000 Voters will stand by us tn rough thick and thin, and in the next campaign we will have the many thousands, who have said, "we must vote for Hogg to beat Clark;" as if the defeat of 'lark was the only thing that the American peo- ple demanded in this campaign. My God Almighty, Clark might have been elected and it would not damage this state more than would the election of Hogg; and yet thousands said that they had to vote for Hogg to defeat Clark.

December 8, 1892. SOUTHERN MfiKCUlll. ii r 1/ i' MARKET WRECKERS. G. WOODS DAVIS. Nothing can be more olear to the observer of market conditions than that the price of such farm prod- ucts as are dealt in upon the ex- changes are determined by those who have little or no interest in the articles in which they pretend to deal and whose efforts are constant- ly directed not to the maintenance of values but rather to their de- struction. They are but ''market wreckers" instead of merchants. Their harvest comes not from ser- vice rendered in the legitimate work oí distribution but from the persistent manipulation and mis- representation which enables them to drive down prices that they may buy in their contracts for future delivery at prices lower than those at which they were utters d—in most cases to the country lambs who are always, or nearly always buyers—hence their profits as a íule depend, not on advances in the value of property which they own, but upon their ability to diminish...

o SOUTHERN MERCURY. December 8, 1882 the Cotton Hotos. Wo are very glad to find the condition of the cotton planter greatly improved from the in- creased price of cotton, but wbat is oí still geeater importance for all interests considered, we believe to be the added sources of profit which the cotton planted has se- cured within the last few years. The expressions very pertinent that neither blessings nor misfor- tunes come singly. Coming so soon after the general utilization of cot- ton seed, we now iind that the motes which have been previously considered as absolute waste, can be utilized to great advantage. From reportB which have reached us we infer that there are fifteen pounds or more of motes to each bale of cotton, and these motes having been formerly considered as absolute waste, any advantage or income that may be derived from them is so much absolute gain to the planter or ginner, or both. A machine has now been per- fected for ginning motes whereby they are rendered of...

The writer has asserted more than once that banks of issue, es- tablished by state laws, are pro- hibited by the constitution of the United States. Mr. Chase, while secretary of the United States treas- ury, in his report to congress in December, 1861, said: "It has been well questioned, by the most eminent statesmen, whether a currency of bank notes, issued by local institutions under state laws, is not in fact prohibited by the national constitution." Mr. Chase was profoundly learned in the law and an able statesman. If the question had been brought before the supreme court of the United States, of which he was chiet justice, there can be no doubt that it wuld have been so decided aud declared. "To coin money," "to emit bills of credit," are prerogatives of sov- ereignty. To arrive at a correct solution of the question it is abso- lutely necessary to know where so...

The citizens of Dal- las are now agitating the subject, and it is hoped that the change may be effected.

It is not, it is helping to give it away, when they don't own a bushel or bale of it. Instead of this gambling system being necessary to the sale of pro- ducts, it is a fact that not only by far the larger portion in quantity and value of the products of the country are sold without it, but even of those subjected to this system of wrecking, only a small percentage is handled by these gambling boards. It is a misfortune in this couutry that a product can be graded order that men may gamble on it. The gamblers handle one- fourth of the wheat crop and about one-sixteenth of the corn, and by knocking down the price on this small per cent are able to bleed the farmers on the entire graded product. All the arguments asainst the prohibition of grain and produce gambling, which, if true, would poss...

14 SOUTHERN MERCURY. December 8,1892 -f f Tbi TIa« to Speik Out. Solomon once said that there was a time to speak and there was a time to refrain from speaking. He never said a wiser thing. We have now come to the time when the farmers must speak out on the anti-option bill, and that in no un- certain tones, and must speak di- rectly to the only persons who can make their will in this matter the law of the land. Congress, fresh from the people, met early in De- cember, and one of the first ques- tions that should engage the at- tention of that body is the anti-op- tion bill, which has now passed the house and awaits the action of the senate. It is, therefore, a mat- ter of the utmost importance that the farmers from one end of the land to the other should impress the minds of that honorable body that they wish the decisive vote of the house, taken last year, affirmed in an equally emphatic manner in the senate of the United States. It is not enough that senators should know by their...
