I F EBRUABT 2, 1893 SOUTHERN MERCURY. BOTH AGAINST TBI FABXEB. Labor Union. Democratic and republican polit- ical leaders, no matter how much they may differ on other points are very much united in opposing the demand of the farmers to be placed on as favorable a footing as the silver mine owners. They hold that it is very wise and prop er for Uncle 8am to receive depos- its of silver bullion and issue mon- ey certificates to the mine owners for it. But for him to receive de posits of wheat and corn, and issue money certificates for them to the farmers is simply too awful to think of for one moment. Farm- ers, don't you think your wishes would get a little more respectfu attention in congress if you hac sent there to represent you a gen uine working farmer from every district where farmers have a ma- jority of the votes ? As long as you continue to vote your enemies into office, they will continue to vote your money into their pock- ets. Don't never cast another vote for a member of...

i 7rV.frJ'™ > . -'W 'iP'W February 2, 1893. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 77/£ CARSHED BANKING PLAN. The Hoggites in the 23d legisla- ture, after deliberately repudiating their carshed platform by electing an anti-silver, anti-state bank, and anti-graduated income tax man, to the United States senate, in the person of R. Q. Mills, are now try- ing to make a show of consistency by submitting a constitutional amendment, permitting the estab- lishment of state banks of issue in Texas. A little history of the blessings our fathers received from this same system over fifty years ago, if heeded, might not be without wholesome effect. The statistics, of the United States treasury department show that in 1836 there was in circula- tion in the United States $149,- 185,800 in state bank notes and $27,031,476 in specie. Now, even a Hoggite should remember that none of these bank notes were money, neither could they be made money, because the constitution of the United States emphatically prohibits any ...

February 2,1893 SOUTHERN MERCURY. 11 ¥ I? * : BKf . \ & i ALL FOB LABOR. MISS FANNIE MOSS, STATB SBC. One of the many remarkable features of the debates going for ward in congress on such questions as currency, coinage, taxation, and kindred interests, is the profound solicitude expressed for the inter- ests and welfare of labor. If the question is more currency, gold, silver, and paper per capita, it is shown that one of the pur poses in view is to lighten the bur- dens of labor. If the question is the free coinage of silver, declarations are equally emphatic that, if adopt- ed, labor will derive great and per- manent benefits. Is the question the single or gold standard, the ad- vocates of the policy pile figures, rhetorical and arithmetical, intend- ed to show that labor is to be the chief beneficiary. Is the question high tariff, production, and taxa- tion, the arguments are made to appear mathematically ponderous in demonstrations of the benefits that will accrue to labor, ...

If % ENCOURAGING OUTLOOK. F. M. ADAMS. To those who have for twelve years painfully watched the growth of corporate powers, combines, trusts, and monopolies, and the decline of individual liberty, pros- perity, and happiness, while our people, blinded by partisan zeal, and lashed to frenzy by a partisan press, eagerly obeyed the dictates of professional politicians in the accomplishment of their own pov- erty and slavery. It is truly grat- ifying, after the defeat of Novem- ber 8, to see the various labor so- cieties maintaining their organiza- tions, like the battalions of a regu- lar army, the flag of * 'equal rights to all, special privileges to none," held aloft by all the reform papers, and the peoples party, the pride and hope of true patriots, steadily marching forward to the conquest of the foes to liberty and human- ity. To those who look to the demo- cratic party, for any legislation in the interest of the people, sad dis- appointment is in store. Those who, for years past...

Have we not all seen it sold, time and openly in the market rould it not save expense, trou again Would it not save expensi ble and sham to oflTer it at public vendue on the state house steps ? Most of our politicians are for sale, like swine in the pig market, and so, also, is the public press, that is established and maintained, not for the good of the public, but of the proprietor, who often, almost always, deems his interests directly opposed to theirs, and when ac- cused of betraying them, insolent- ly replies that he "is not running a paper for his health," but as we are led to infer, to pander to the grossest passions and debauch his fellows for money. With such mad adoration of Mammon as is everywhere appar- ent, it is difficult to perceive how we are to secure anything like jus- tice, or a benignant mansgement of our affairs. We certainly have made but a poor approach to it us y...

The long depres- sion that has prevailed created a spirit ot unreBt and inquiry that resulted in the spontaneous band- ing togother of a large number of farmers in various organizations in all parts of the nation with these great objects in view, viz: 1. To labor for the education of the agricultural classes in the science of political economy, in a strictly non-partisan spirit, and to briog about a more perfect union of said classes. 2. That we demand equal rights to all and special favors to none. 3. To indorse the motto: "In things essential, unity; and in all things, charity." 4.

The fourth week of the 23d leg- islature has dawned, and yetnoth ing of very general importance has b en accomplished. A few local bills have been passed. Many bills have been introduced and, naturally a few of them are with merit. The great majority, how- ever, will serve the country best by being placed along side oí Mc Ginty. The past few weeks can not be counted as having been pro- ductive of no good, but to the con- trary. The majority came here with but litte ideas of how to pro ceed in a legislative body, and of course had to learn the modus op- erandi of making laws. Being a very intelligent set of men they all know more now than they did when the legislature assembled. Again, a great many of us believe in the theory that the fewer laws we have the better, hence the time has not been wasted. If the administration expects to redeem the promise made to the people in the heated campaign, it is hig...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. February 9 1893 common ignorance vs. trickery. It is the common idea that "treasury notes issued by the Uni- ted States are not money, but promises to pay money/' The statement that treasury notes are not money is exactly con- trary to the facts; because money is anything that will extinguish a debt at the will of the debtor with- out consent of the creditor at a fixed unit of values; in other words, money is anything that congress says shall be a legal tender in pay- ment of debts. The material.out of which it is made cuts no figure whatever in the premises. Suppose A. owes B. $100 and B. tenders A. $100 in legal tender treasury notes; that extinguishes the debt, because B. has complied with the law. On the other hand, if B. were to tender A. $500 worth of gold, coined in England, it would not extinguish the debt, no more than tendering him a horse or cow; all because the legal ten- der principle is wanting. Again, suppose A. presents $1000 in legal tender treasur...

They found both in abundance in the United States! We all see the result! John Taylor, author of many able works on money, published in London in the early part of this century, shows plainly that the use of metallic money is a pure waste of labor, to the full amount of the value of the coin in use, and reserve, less the cost of paper money. Why does not congress assume the sovereign prerogative guaran- teed by the constitution of fur- nishing all the inhabitants of the United States with a uniform na- tional currency? Are not the peo- ple entitled to all the rights and advantages that may inure from this? If a $100 bond drawing 4 per cent per annum is good for the money king, why is not a $10 treas- ury note bearing no interest good for the people?

February 9, 1893. SOUTHERN MERCURÍ. 9 ARE YOU READY FOR THE END ? That the present barbaric mone- tary system is tottering on its base, under the increasing blows of an advancing civilization, is perfectly apparent. The champions of the Rothschilds and their ilk, see the approaching struggle, and are skillfully preparing for it. Their spies honeycomb every society, se- cret or otherwise. Not a move- ment is planned that is not prompt- ly reported to headquarters, and then sifted by the ablest minds that money can buy. The international monetary con- ference was nothing but an appeal from the usuers of America to those of Europe for aid to keep the necks of Americans under the heels of usuers. The conference was a blind, under cover of which a plan, deep, dark, and damnable, was perfected, the inwardness of which will be developed if reformers press the money question with power enough to force the anacon- da to uncoil itself during the sit- ting of the 53d congress. If the people of...
