Wtyen the bulk of our public debts—national, state, county and municipal, were made, one dollar of the money loaned us would buy twice as much as it will to-day, as per the following showing. In 1866: 1 steer - - was worth $ 75.00 1 horse - - 4* " 150.00 1 bushel of wheat" " 2.00 To-day the purchasing power of the dollar is: 1 steer - - ----- $25.00 1 horse - - - 75 00 1 bushel of wheat - - .75 These prices are compiled from Chicago market reports and can be depended upon. All debts public and private are paid in labor. Consequently a debt of $75,000 contracted in 1866, would have taken 1,000 of* the cattleman's steers to have paid it at that time —to-day it would take 3,000 steers to pay the same debt without inter- est (but interest you know k-ieps right on, never stopping.)

January 5, 1893. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 18 A now ib the time to wobk. There is sound logic in the fol- lowing advice from the Industrial Free Press. We trust every read- er of the Mercury will go to work at once and test these practical sug- gestions: The long winter nights are here again and the farmer's work is mostly laid by for the present and it is a good time to think about re- organizing your Alliance if it has been dormant during the winter months Don't think that since we have gained a political victory in Kansas that Alliance work is done. On the contrary, it has just begun. We have made one step in the right direction, shall we stop at that? Certainly we should not. Never before has the political movement needed the guiding hand of the Alliance as now. There is no greater educational means for the people, no more powerful force against wrong and corruption in high places than the Alliance and its greatest work is before it. Strive to keep the Alliance alive so as to keep a sal...

SOUTHERN MERCURY, January 12, 1893 natu 0 U 18 'does not present such grand T-al opportunities. My advice to ever man who ¡not engaged in either the lawmak ing or lawbreaking business is to give some attention at once to the subject of direct legislation by the people. If you indorse the prin ciple—and how on earth you can help doing that I can't see—do noi be quieted by the harpies who tel you "it is cumbersome" or "revo- lutionary," but read up on the de- tails as proposed by men who have given much attention to the sub ject. Familiarize yourselves with its workings in Switzerland, and be prepared to take your proper stand when the time comes to de- cide whether you will longer re- main the prey of bunko legislators or will gain for yourselves and your children a pure and unquali fied democracy. — — 4 — work and wait.

January 12, 1893. SOUTHERN MERCURY. STAND TO TOUR PRINCIPLES. HENSY K. M'CULLOCH. The year 1892, with its political contests, is among the things of the past, and while its scenes can nev- er be recalled, they will long be remembered. Yes, the battle is over and the smoke has cleared away, but there are "bombshells" still scattered over the field that will burst at some future day and scatter the demagogues that are still standing about Macawber like waiting for something to 'turn up.' Meantime the Alliance, with its aspiring demagogues inside, and designing politicians outside, has passed through a trying ordeal,and although slightly scarred by the political "scuffle," it is neither dead or crippled. Now, as the new year opens upon us, let us once more marshall our forces of true and tried men and move for- ward, and with a proper sense of justice to the order and that broth- erly charity which should charac- terize our conduct toward our fel- low man, go to work to heal all the pe...

SOUTHERN MEttCUKV. January 12, 1898 m ir i WHERE WE DIFFER. Since the presentation of the sub-treasury plan by the Farmers Alliance, as a remedy for existing evils in our financial system, the financial solons have been cudgel- ling their brain for a plausible ar- gument against it. To this day they have failed to show a weak place in the plan. During the re- cent campaign they resorted to misrepresentation in many instan- ces, and frequently compared it to the Jno. Law scheme, the defunct Confederate measure,the Argentine Republic financial plan, etc.; for- getting the fact that all the wisdom and all the intelligence is not ar- rayed on the side of plutocracy. In the effort to stigmatize our sub- treasury plan, they have presumed upon the ignorance of our people as to what the Argentine plan was. For the benefit of such as may want light on the point at issue, we give the following outline of the Argentine National Mortgage Bank system as described by U.S. Consul Baker, in his rep...

Many are influential, though 1 do not believe ihe democrats have ever declared for it in any of their state plattorms. I handed it to an old fellow that is noted for his party blindness and he remarked: "Why yes, anxiously will I sign it, for although I am a democrat I believe in honest elections, and that the Australian ballot will give it, and by the way, 1 like other things in your platform, and if you will petition the legislature to limit the expenditures of the commis- sionero' court, unless by a direct vote of the people—you can count me one in advance as a signer."

January 12, 1893 texas co-operative investment co We have carefully looked over the plan and rules of this compa- ny, incorporated under the laws of Texas, headquarters of which are at Denton, Texas. It has/tdopted the system of co-operation that un- derlies life insurance but has elim- inated the death feature. When $1,000 has accumulated in its fund it is immediately paid out on a certificate, thereby maturing the certificate. By this system the money is paid during life. We believe the system i good and have invested in it. Our old friend, D. J. Eddleman,of Denton, is the originator of the plan and is manager of the agency department. Special features of the Texas Co- operative Investment Co.: 1. It costs less per $1,000. 2. It pays the certificate at ma- turity (1,000) without regard to whether the holder is living or dead. 3. It gives better surrender val- ue. 4. Premiums may be paid in small installments. 5. Large sums ol money are not accumulate...

January 12,1893 SOUTHERN MKRCURV. 7 u ) TO THE PLANTER8. The Wallie Lespenard Cotton Picker and Machinery Company has been making tests and demon- strations of the capacity of its me- chanical picking machine at vari- ous places during the past season, and in making these tests many alter alterations in some of the de- tailed workings of the machine have been from time to time sug- gested which have brought the machine to its present state of per- fection. Owing to the fact that the early crop was some three or four weeks late in maturing, and the late or top crop was practically undevel- oped, and, too, since the altera- tions above mentioned have all ta- ken time, the company has been unable to make public tests and demonstrations in many places where it had been designed to ex- hibit. The success of the tests made, however, has been very en- couraging, and has demonstrated the fact that the company has a machine which, in its practical workings, is satisfactory to the planters wh...

The close observer cannot fail to note the innovations continually being made in governmental cir- cles, particularly the wide diverg- ence from the customs of the fath- ers of the republic. This thought is suggested by the extensive display and courtly dem- onstrations anticipated at Austin at the inaugural ball soon to take place. How times have changed since the inaugural of Thomas Jef- ferson. The question naturally presented itself to the reader, "whither are we drifting as a na- tion ?" At the inaugural ball in Austin the rich and powerful and the beau- tiful will dominate; swallow-tailed coats, silk dresses, diamonds in profusion, will adorn the persons of those who are permitted to par- ticipate. Evidences of wealth will be visible on every side, and the ceremonies will, in the main, ape those of the royalty and nobility of the old world. Nine-tenths of the gentlemen present will be ad- dressed, you...

Four thousand tone of silver bul- lion is the amount purchased by the Sherman act of 1890, for which the government issued its treasury notes payable in cein. Are they paid in silver coin when presented to the treasury for redemption? No! What are they paid in? Gold coin! Why is this done? Because none but the rich want them redeemed, and when they present them they demand gold. Why? Because they can drain the treasury of every dollar of gold coin in it, then the government will be unable to pay off the bonds at maturity, because they are now payable in gold ! These gold bugs can force the government to bor- row their gold at a premium or force them to re-issue gold interest bearing bonds. As a matter of fact the United States treasury is now being drained of its last gold coin and will consequently soon be unable to pay the interest on the Eublic debts. Then these go...

Let it remain undisturbed for a couple of months, save for the fill- ing up of the vessel to replace evap- oration, and* an occasional com- plete change of the water by a si- phon. The acorn will throw a root down into the water, and up- ward will shoot a slender stem with glossy leaves. Hyacinth glasses are the best for the pur- pose.

14 SOUTHERN MERCURY. January 12,189 3 The Chicago Herald, the leading democratic newspaper in the west, says: "Free silver coinage will have little chance in the next or 53d congress, in spite of its 100 democratic majority. President Cleveland would strangle a free coinage bill in the white house if it went to him, but the member- ship of the next house is such that it can safely be predicted that no free coinage bill will be passed there. The total membership of the new house will be 356, of which 178 are sufficient to defeat any legislation they may object to. Carefal figur- ing upon the attitude of the mem- bers whose position is known, in- dicates that not less than 71 demo- crats and 113 republicans would vote against the free coinage of silver." No one need doubt that the Chi- cago Herald's figures are substan- tially correct. That paper stands in with the inner circle that has ruled the country with an iron hand lo these manyjyears, and set the will of the people at defiance...
