Essayists and politicians are con- tinually def "ijiting upon the mar- velous pro* ^Srity of our nation, while compa'i.5 Jvely few seem to imagine it necessary to consider what elements are essential to the real prosperity of a people. The accumulation of great wealth with- in a country's borders does not necessarily indicate that the nation is prosperous; indeed, this is the vital point which apologists for present conditions ignore, though no fact is more incontrovertible. For example, if all the wealth of the United States was controlled by five men, while over sixty mil- lion people were practically vas- sals or slaves, it could not be said that ours was a prosperous people in the true sense of the term. And it is equal...

We are constantly reminded that poverty and want in our great ci ties are largely due to intemper- ance, crime, and idleness on the part of the unfortunate; and this is unquestionably to a certain extent true, although I believe if we could ascertain the proportion of persons driven to drink and crime by pov- erty and injustice, compared with those who sink to the depths of want through drink and vice, we would be amazed to find how large a factor poverty is in making drunkards and criminals today. But let us turn from the great cities, where vice, idleness and drink enter into the cardinal ele- ments which result in the poverty and suffering oí millions, to some rural regions where ^ e are ena- bled to obtain reliable data by which...

If they presage im- pending evil, the reader should remember that they are drawn from the arsenals of conservatism. The judicial figures of our greatest city, the official mortgage records of Nebraska, and the record of Mr. Potter's census cannot be dismissed as the exaggeration of the unin- formed by the willing allies of those who uphold the injustice of present economic conditions. Fur- thermore, these facts reveal a state in city and country life deplorable beyond the power of pen to por- tray. They demonstrate that hon- esty, thrift, and sobriety are no looger talismen against starvation in this opulent nation, and that conditions today are the result of glaring social and economic evils largely due to the vicious class and special legislation of recent years. In this paper my purpose is to point out evil conditions which ex- ist, and which demand immediate a...

SÜÜTÍtEKN MEBCtlRÍ. January 19,1808 I" i m fa CAN YOU SEE THE END! The gesult of the 1892 electiun was as much a surprise to the dem- ocrats as to any others, and teaches a lesson that the intelligent will profit by. The official vote shows that the people are alert, self re- liant, and rapidly becoming inde- pendent as to party ties. It shows that the slums of New York are no longer a potent power in national elections; that that power has been transferred to the south and west; that the voters are leaving the republican party in large numbers; that the people are determined to obtain needed re- forms; that the people are sick and tired of existing conditions; that they know what's the matter, and what they need and how to get it; that we will have a revolution at every general election till the peo- ple secure the reforms they de- mand. The people have lost confidence in republican leaders. They prom- ised the people needed reforms. They were in power and could have fulfilled thei...

January 19, 1893. SOUTHERN MERCURY. Hit EOTHCH1LDS AT THE BOTTOM OF IT ! The fine Italian hand of the Rothschilds is easily discerned in the recent French Panama canal scandal. De-More and others who worked the ropes are known to be Rothschilds tools. The man Hurz who duped and blackmailed poor old DeLesseps, and through him filched every dollar in the treasu- ry of the concern, ruined and de- stroyed several French statesmen, and placed the republic itself in jeopardy, has long been known as an esmissary of the Rothschilds. Through the efforts of this artis- tic scoundrel many leading French- men were covered with the slime of bribery, and convicted of rob- bing the republic and the people, but the Rothschilds got away with the cash. Through the knavery and cunning efforts of the Israel- ites Paris had gone money mad. The remorseless spirit they first instilled into old Cornelius Van- derbilt (and transmitted by him to W. H. Vanderbilt), the Astors, Tweeds, Goulds, and Sages, has s...

Owing to the fact that the early crop was some three or four weeks late in maturing, and thq 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 comp...

January 19,1893 SOUTHERN MERCURY. . 7 i I i u THE SILVER QÜE8TION. To intelligently discuss the coin- age of silver it should be divided into three propositions. 1st. What amount of money per capita will it take to enable our people to transact their business on a cash basis? 2d. What amount per capita have we now in actual circulation among the people? 3d. Will the unlimited coinage of silver inflate the volume beyond the demands of trade? None who have examined this subject place the amount necessary to enable the people to transact their business for cash at less .than $50 per capita. As it is the gen- eral opinion that $50 is as little as the business could be carried on with, we adopt that amount as the correct one. Statisticians of national repute differ as to the actual amount of money in actual circulation, and as a matter of fact, it is impossible to determine the exact amount, yet with the authentic statistics now attainable, the amount can be near- ly enough ascertained f...

It has almost come to the pass that a rural, ag- ricultural life is looked on with disdain by young men. This is deplorable, but is largely due to defective education or instruction. Boys growing up should be taught that in life on the farm there are opportunities and contentment fully equal to anything the glamor and pretenses of the city may offer.

The Day-Globe displays com- mendable condor in stating the un- palatable condition that confronts us even in Texas, but errs radically as to the cause that produced it. There can be no condition without a cause, and if the Day-Globe will die; down into this question deter- mined to locate the cause, it will find that low prices of farm pro- ducts and the ever increasing bur...

Never before, in the history of oar country, has there been so grand an opportunity offered for formers' wives and daughters to an equal distribution of knowledge upon the issues that so much con- cern our country as the Farmers Alliance has opened to us. Women's work in the Alliance is varied, and the opportunities are many for making our Alliance meetings most pleasant and in- structive, which can best be por- trayed by dividing into the follow- ing heads: The first necessity to success is regular attendance, without which failure is sure to follow. Then, with regular attendance as a plat- form, it becomes women's work to promote sociability among the members as a family gathering of brothers and sisters, working har- moniously together. We must use our ideas in organization, plan and execute them in various forms of entertainments, a nice lunch served during a...

2 SOUTHERN MERCURY. January 26, 1893 IB XT NOT TRUE I George W. Wilson, of Missouri, a lifelong democrat, in a letter to tbe Chicago Sentinel, under date of Dec. 21, 1892, speaks out clear and forcibly on the causes that have brought the country into its present deplorable condition. Says he: About the year 1797, when En gland went into the wars against Napoleon and the French, she had to suspend the payment of her dues in coin. For a quarter of a century she continued under sus pension. When the battle of Wa- terloo was fought the Rothschilds had careful and expensive arrange- ments for getting the new of the result. They learned it in London some hours before any one else and spread a report all over the city that the allies were beaten and Napoleon was the victor. English bonds went down with what is now known as a "slump" and the Rothschilds bought them right and left by the aid of agents not known to be connected with their house. When the truth was known the bonds went up as r...
