What secret rejoicine mu«t be going on as they see Rothschilds graciously granting the greatest Gentile nation a "plan" for doing something or other with its silver which its own constitution requires it to coin. "The scribes now pit 111 Moses' s*at." The bank ring, made up of foreign bankers, foreign even in race, and the devotees of insatiable greed in our own ountry, who want coin out of the way so they can float their bills that cost them nothing, now pollute the places once held by Washington, Jeffer- son, Gallatin and Hamilton. The following advice from the Missouri World deserves to be heeded by our Texas Alliancemen: Let each Alliance man take it upon himself the duty—for it is such—of doing what he can toward re-establishing his sub-Alliance.

January 26, 1893. SOUTHERN MEltCURV. / rj a conspiracy to abolish state militia. GEOBOB T. B0NDIE3. To my mind this accusation is warranted by what appears over the name of Albert A. Pope, of Boston, Mass , in the Dallas News of August 16th, 1892. There Mr. Pope opens up with the case of Private lams a§ if with the inclination of leading us to in- fer that the shameful and cruel suspension by the thumbs of this member of a state soldiery, was what originally impelled him to make the proposition contained in his circular letter to Adjutant-Gen- erals of the militia of the several states, and published, as above in- dicated, in the Dallas News. Still if we are to take heed of the dates of some of the replies to this same circular letter, no other conclusion^ could be reached than that there had been made careful aud wide spread efforf to accomplish its purport long before such a man as lams was ever heard of. And while, to further allay alarm it is stated in one part of this cir- cula...

January 26, 1893 to the PLANTEES f the propo: before the The Wttlliri Lespei.aid 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 satisfa...

It is now concluded by our wise- est politicians that the republican party will gradually disintegrate unless the wealthy and retained members of the party conclude that by holding their party organi- zation intact they can secure the defeat of the peoples party and the supremacy of the democratic party. The only thing the democrats and republicans do differ about is the tariff, and it is beleived that 1he future tariff legislation by the dem- ocrats will prove that their differ- ences on that question are merely nominal. The last national campaign, as far as the democrats and republi- cans were concerned, was fought to a finish on that issue alone The result was so overwhelming and emphatic that no one would advise entering another campaign with the \) tariff as an issue. It is generally admitted that finance will be the leading issues in future national campaims, till a final settlement is made at (he polls. ...

To illustrate, if the United States should clothe greenbacks with all the legal functions of money, and withdraw from its gold coin its tax paying power, and the volume of greenbacks was twice that of gold in circulation, the result would be that gold coin would de- cline in value, while greenbacks would appr« ciate. This proposi- tion is fully demonstrited by the history of silver money. From the formation of our govern me to 1873, silver coin of the United States was at par with gold; that is to say, an ounce of silver bullion was worth $1.29 in gol Then congress demonetized it. In 1878 congress partially remone- tized it. Again in 1890 it wnolly stopped the coinage of it, by the Sherman act, and instructed the secretary of the treasury to pur chase 4,500,000 ounces of silver bullion each month, at the market price, for which their treasury notes payable in coin were issued Just as soon as congress took th...

Away in the sea, oh, I wonder where, Somewhere, somewhere, in the waters blue, Where the winds are soft and the skies are fair, In a mystic country no man ever knew, My ship rides safe in a dreamy calm; Perhaps by an isle where the lotus grows, Perhaps by an isle of the spreading palm, Perhaps—who knows? Ah, yes, who knows? But her cargo is sa/e where'er she be, And her crew will tire of the lazy life, And her prow will cut a course through the sea Some day, I know, like a gleaming knife, But, oh, as I patiently sit and wait, It beams so long to me, so long She lingers outside the harbor gate, And her sailors list to the mermaid's song. But ships come in, and I'll yet see her In time that is long or time that is short; Although, iorsooth. she seems to prefer The sunny isles to the grimmy port. —Carl Smith, in Harper's Weekly.

When the long, bright day is done And the last rays of the sun With a fading light the hill tops fair adorn, It is sweet to rest awhile. And a moment to beguile, In listening to the rustling of the corn. Oh, that music $oft and low, When the summer breezes blow, Bringing back the happy scenes of childhood's morn> When through all the summer day I have whiled the hours away Playing hide and seek amid the rustling corn ! Through the dim, uncertain light I can see the phantom bright Of a loved one who, in chilhood's rosy morn, From oirr home was called away, And her shout and laughter gay Seems to echo faintly through the rus- tling corn. Like a dream these pleasures flew, With the years returned anew; Little ones within my cottage home were born, And once more I hear the shout, Hear the running in and out, Happy children hiding in the rustling corn. Many years have passed away, And my hair is turning gr...

The resolution passed by the Erath county Alii mce,published in our last issue,and the utterances of some journals, assuming to repre- sent the Alliance, condemning our action at that meeting, and im- pugning our motives, compels us, in self-defense, to submit the fol- lowing statement of facts, in refer- ence to said meeting, which we hope tbe loyal brethren will ac- cept as a sufficient apology for this public report: When we reached Memphis, a majority of us were an- ti-Macune men, and opposed to electing him to any off...

14 SOUTHERN MERCURY. January 26,1893 HI WHO ABE TOV WORKING FORI OBSERVER. Two months have elapsed since the remarkable 8th of November. We ha* e had time to reflect over causes and to comtem plate proba- ble results that may grow out oí future events. Now, let us not think more highly of ourselves than we ought, but let us think so- berly—let us view the situation, surroundings, and circumstances honestly and impartially. Facts are stubborn things and, however unpleasant, must be met. "They will not down." Let us not judge hastily or harshly, but coolly, dis- passionately, and charitably, re- membering always that it is hu- man to err, divine to forgive. On the 9th inst. our Ifgislators-elect met at the capitol of the state. At the same time and place assembled a body of persons, perhaps much less in numbers, but far superior in power and importance, being "the power behind the throne." greater than the throne itself.

February 2, 1893. SOUTHERN MERCURY, ■r m) ÉÍ senator stewart on silver. Few persons realize the radical revolution which is taking place in the financial system of the world. Coined money has been manufact- ured from either gold or silver without distinction or discrimina- tion from time immemorial until within the last twenty years. The world has frequently suffered for want of a sufficient amount of coined money to serve as a basis for paper circulation and credit. Intelligent writers who have in vestigated the subject concur in the opinion that the failure of the mines and the loss of coin de- stroyed the Roman Empire and brought on the Dark Ages; and that the discovery of gold and sil- ver in Mexico and South America created modern civilization. For 300 years prior to the com- mencement of the present century the supply of gold and silver from the mines was constant and suffi- cient to enable the struggling masses to make very material ad- vancement from feudal slavery to- ward ...

« February 2, 1893. SOUTHERN MERCURY. another a. and m. college. Senator Bowser's arguments fa- voring the location of an A. & M. College in the black lands of North Texas are, in the opinion of the Mercury, fallacious. The stu- dents can be educated in 1 black land" farming, as well at the A, & M. College at Bryan as anywhei o else. Wnat other states have done should be no criterion for Texas, unless what they did has proven a success. This important fact the senator failed to demonstrate. The amount of acres of land in North Texas, or the amount of taxes paid by its citizens, is not pertinent to the question. The A. & M, College at Bryan is a state institution; it was located by the proper authorities; a great deal of money has been expended upon it; and, until that school has been brought to a higher state of excel- lency, it is silly to start another. Good business men and sound politicians, never attempt a measure until it is necessary, and then do what they underta...

One Saturday, Stanford and Gage were walking along Kearney street, and when they got to the corner of Bush the governor took off his hat, wiped bis brow and remarked: "Steve, it's too hot for anything. What do you say to a breath of fresh air ?" "Have we time?" inquired Mr. Gage, pulling out his watch. So did the governor, who replied. "There isn't anything very press- ing for a couple of hours, I guess, and we may as well take a spin out to the park. It isn't worth while to have out my horses; let's take a hack and then we can enjoy a walk when we get there. It'll be better than riding around the drives." So they got into a coupe and were driven out to the Golden Gate Park. At the entrance the gover- nor alighted. "What's the fare?" asked the governor. "Only $15, gov'ner." "What!" y...
