vw* December 29, 1892 SOUTHERN MERCURY. 4 !#• No Ten-Dollar Immigrants. Mew York Herald. It is a suicidal policy to allow this country to become a swarming place for the ten dollar immigrants of Europe* It is a great privilege for a foreign laborer, who has everything against him in England or in any nation on the continent, to take up his lot in America, where the drift of opportunity is in his favor. Out of respect for our institutions and for ourselves we are bound to make that fact known to the whole world. As a matter of selt protection we are a]so bound to be discriminating and to say in sharply defined terms that a certain class will be wel- comed and that a certain class will not be received under any circum- stances. If a man living in Ger- many, England, Italy or anywhere else has any capital on which to build) the capital of b¿ains, or the capital of skilled labor, if he is in- dustrious and honest and has a clean record—4f such a man wants to come here, and proposes to a...

Those who oppose State banks of issue are now dubbed by the or ganized democracy as "calamity howlers, centralizationists," etc., etc. Yet at the same time these same democrats solemnly assure the people that they are "Jefl'er sonian democrats" and that their political bible is the teachings of Thomas Jefferson. It may not be out of place at this time to quote a few paragraphs from letters written by Thomas Jeffeison to President Adams and Mr. Epps upon this subject. Said Mr. Jefferson in a letter to Mr. Adams, Dec. 27, 1814: "I have ever opposed money of banks; not of those discounting for casn, but of those foisting their own paper in circulation, and thus banishing our cash. "My zeal against those institu- tions wa« so warm and open at the establishment of the bank of the United States tnat I was derided as a maniac by the tribe of the money-mongers, who were seeking to filch from the public.

it December 29, 1882 State Bank Notes. A movement is now on foot in congress to have the prohibitory 10 per cent tax on State bank is- sues of paper money, which was levied in 1865, repealed. The gov- ernment first began to fasue notes for general use in 1862. It was not the original intention to wipe out the State bank issues. But by 1865 the superiority of greenbacks had been abundantly demonstrated and congress, without considering party difference, decided to wipe out a currency which was a useless nuisance. The tax was supported by the whole people of the coun- try. The evil ol this bank issue scheme increased with the devel opment of the country. The fol lowing table, which is taken from Shucker's 'Life of Salom P.Chase,' shows the monetary condition of the country in 1862, and for the six years previous: 1859. 1862.

It wiJl be remembered that when Cleveland was elected in 1884 he could not wait to be inaugurated before he gave vent to his Hpleen against the silver dollar. And now within thirty-aix hours after the close of the polls, No- vember 8, the Chicago Herald, one of the leading democratic organs of the northwest, comes brazenly forth with the following proposition, in- viting therefore the support of such infamously well-known gold bugs as John Smith: "It would be good policy, apart from any partisan consideration, to pass a bill repealing the silver act of 1890 and stopping all purchases of silver before the holiday recess for effect upon the international monetary conference. This action would serve a notice upon Euro- pean countries that they could no longer depend upon us to take care of all the surplus in the world, and that they must do their share or Bee the exchanges with silver standard countries still more...

SOUTHtEKN MfittCUBf, January 5, It A GRADUATED UTOOXE TAZ. Outline of the bill introduced in the house of representatives by Hon. Mr. Manseur of Missouri. Referring to it, Mr. Mauseur says: It has been very largely con- strued by the courts, its meaning ascertained and its exemptions un- derstood. Besides, all necessary regulations and machinery, with blank forms to secure its success- ful operation, are ready for instant use and in possession of the treas- ury. The bill differs from the one in force during and just after tbe war only in this, that the exemp- tion is $1,200 instead of $600. On all incomes from $1,200 to $10,000 the tax is 3 per cent. On all in- comes above $10,000 the tax is 5 per cent. In 1886, the last year in which an income tax was collected, there were only 461,170 persons who had incomes over $600,from whom were collected in round numbers $73,000,000. Only one person in each seventy-five earned as much or more or had an income of $600. Now, our population is n...

What do we demand? Equal justice for all men I With what single one of our "de- mands," does either one of the old parties sympathize, much less agree?

January 5, 1893. SOUTHERN MERCÜRV. A I ffe f: img alls weakness. Ex-Senator John J. Ingalls, of Kansas fame, recently gave to the press a very remarkable interview. It is especially remarkable if con sidered in connection with his memorable speech delivered in the United States senate in December following the November elections of 1890. In that speech, lie said: "The people of this country, smarting under the sting of pover ty, growing out of the neglect of their interests by the lawmakers of this nation, are rising in ther just indignation, determined to bur from power those who are respon- sible for the unnecessary conditions that all intelligent persons know exist." The last interview of the elo quent and erratic senator has at- tracted wide attention, and, unlike his memorable speech, it has re- ceived general commendation at the hands of the plutocratic v>ress. This interview, like most of his utterances, is interspersed with brilliant scintillations of wit and wisdom. The ...
