December 8, 1892. SOUTHERN MEBCURY. 15 I vf V Cheering Words From BratA. O. L. CLARK. The allian< e of old Erath is still on her feet. No danuer from po- litical dipeeneions. We know our business in that direction. We have ever maintained a non-parti- san spirit and hence have passed through the late political campaign without a scratch. Our county al- liance school building, located at Lingleville, is nearly completed. Our last county meeting was well attended, and the interest and in- telligence displayed was very marked. We have two cotton yards in the county, and both giv- ing perlect satisfaction to all con- cerned. The order has done great good in our couaty and our people feel that as an educator upon all questions pertaining to the farmer's interest its place cannot be sup- plied 1 Christianity's Claims are the Best Seeing the sin that abounds, the ruin that is working among the young, the suffering it entails upon all, one should b« too philanthrop- ic to be anything but...

f I lili I If' Wk § 4 16 SOUTHERN MERCURY. December 8, 1892 Cheering Words from the Hoosier State. WILSON CORY. If my memory serves me right, my subscription to The Souhern Mercury has expiree. You will please not erase my name from your list, as I consider your paper ene of the very best among my many papers that teaches reforms that we are so much in need. You have made a grand fight in the Lone Star State. I was very much in the hope that* the solid South would make an independent break and kick over the old partisan traces. But, however, we proba- bly were anticipating too much in too short a time. We must buckle our armor one notch tighter and push tho fight with renewed vigor. We of Indiana mourn the loss of ^hat noble hero, Tom Watson, but will console ourselves as best we can, in tho belief that Brother Ma- rion Cannon, of Colorado, will al- most, if not quite, fill the vacuum. I was also sorry to learn that my old acquaintance and friend, Ben Terrell, of Texas, failed to wi...

I i JS V r I president, who shall give the plan a careful consideration, and report to this mating as to what meth- ods should, in their judgment, be adopted to secure to the order the be«t result* from the degree. We would especially commend to this body the propriety of plac- ing stress upon the policy of co- operation. Our order is one pe- culiarly fraternal and co-operative and effective work now done in behalf of co-operation is sure tobe attended with good results. In addition to co operating upon fire and life insurance, the various forms of business co-operation may now be profitably encouraged, and in the fouth there is probably now a better opening than there has been in years ior effective co-oper at ion upon cotton. The short crop this year must exhaust all the sur- plus and make the next season open with speculators, and spin- ners short of cotton, and if the producers co-operate, prices can easily be kept up throughout the season ...

Political reform can only come in one of two ways: It must come, if at all. through the terrible throes of revolution, or as the peaceful re- sult of education. We have start- ed out on the course last indicated. Thus far the prospect of our cause is Üattering. Nothing, in my opin- ion, but a rash attempt, on our part, to force mature results from immature conditions can baffle ul- timate success. THE SOLID SOUTH. There is another feature of the address but slightly less unfortu nate than the one just considered. It is that to which I alluded in the outset; a quasi arraignment of the Southern Allianoemea for unfaith fulness during the late campaign. It begins in this language: ''The mout perplexing problem for uh to solve, and the greatest obstacle in the way of reform, is to be found, in my opinion, in the South." Then follows a brief...

History has never recorded such pal- pable fraud as was openly and unbluah- mgly perpetrated by the democrats in this state. Scarcely a precinct is free from fraud of some character. What shall the people do, under such circum- stances. Elections have proven to be a delusion with a contamination of such crimes against the people, and liberty will soon be a thing unknown to ^ the farmers of America. A republican form of government will prove to be a signal failure if we are to continue this course. A crown head would be prefer- able to the rule of gold. I am frater* nally, T. J.

The Great Aim of the Alliance. , u.JU. j:-'«¿.J SOUTHERN MERCURY. W. L. PHILLIPS. Let the Alliance continne as heretofore. As an organization it has done more to educate the masses on political coonomy than all the partizari political organiza- tions for the last thirty years. This has boon accomplished by discus- sions in our subordinate Alliances and by provoking opposition and and investigation. The growth in knowledge has been v^ry rapid. The advance in political knowledge among the members of our order is so pronounced that even our en- emies are amazed. Brethren, our work has just begun. In our or- ganization the educational fea- ture, especially in political econo- my, is more essential than ever. The tendency of all branches of in- dustry henceforth will bo to per- fect their present organizations.

No -rlj 600 voars before the Christian era Solon, one of "the seven wise men of Greece," con- ferred up:>n Athens a code of laws which for many ensuing centurics commanded the admiration of the world. Even Cicero, ihe most re nowned statesman, orator and law yer f ancient Rome, gave it his emphatic encomium. Yet, when first published, Solon was icraind- ed t'iat against the crime of parri- cide his code contained neither pro- hibition nor penalty. He excused himself by declaring, "that he had never imagined men capable of such fearful wickedness." In like manner, when the ac c^ims of our own, as well as of foreign nations, the constitution of the United States was adopted, a far more fearful oversight was per- petrated. That historical docu- ment was based upon the ennobling assumption that every citiaen pos scssed good principles and good sense and should therefore be en- dowed not only...

Under a government economically admin istered it is possible to know what the expenditures are and for what purposes the money is appropri- ated. The questioning mind of the people is being quickened each day. They would be sure to fol- low up each dollar, and an item of thirty million dollars would notes- cape detection if used to debauch the people, but no power of the people can trace the path of the corruption fund which now finds its way from railway offices into the pockets of office holders and seekers of all parties. It was pos- sible for tne people to shake the hold of the office holders in 1884, after the republican party had a lease of power extending through twenty-four years. It was possible for the people to again break the grasp of the office holders in 1888. The...
