m i 1; The Waoó Meeting. Editor Mercury:—In the first column of the first page ot the it. Worth Gazette of April 4th, 1891, is a most extraordinary, flagrant, and misleading "special" which, more aptly, has no more founda- tion for the ranting assertions, po- litical prophecies, epithetieal dic- tion, deceptive insinuations, and pomposity of style containing therein than that which is furnished by common political street "twad- dle" so extravagantly indulged in "now-a-davs" by the collector— whose occupation is spending the spring and summer months in New England for its health—and his "boss" whose business is light dur- ing the same season, and the fanci- ful imagery of the prophetic politi- cal "dude" whose studied expres- sions reach no higher plane than mere epithetieal diction in adulter- ate and pompous style. This luminous (?) special is sig nificant only in its attempt to de ceive the reader as to the true rela tions existing between what the writer pleases to denominate the...

The Taking of Uaury Is Re- prehensible. It is well known to every reader of the Bible that usury, or the taking of inter- est for tbe loan of money, was one of tbe greatest abominations under tbe. Jewish law. Tbe old testament abounds in the severest denunciations against tbe practice, and Nehemiah was in- spired to repudiate absolutely every ob- ligation in Jerusalem which drew in. terest. Aristotle, Book II, chapter I, says: "Tbe practice of receiving interest on money is detestible, as by it tbe in- crease of fortune arises from the money itself, and not by employing it to the purpose for which it was intended." St. Augustine says: "If you lend money' to a man and éxpect ■ to receive more than you gave you are ■ usurer, and in that respect reprehensible, not praiseworthy." Bt. Ghrysostum says: "Nothing ex- ceeds in barbarity the modern system of usury. .Under tbe pretext of giving aid the usurer grinds the poor. Ex- tending tbe hand to receive them into harbor from the storm, he ...

b • M A. m m Bthtistioi. by. j. b. oay. These are wonderful things and compiled by a dozen men with scope to thought; they control the ideas of millions, because they are supposed to be fair. But statistics from a business standpoint can lean, and from this basis always do, and they are so very effective be- cause their prey does not think so. Statistics is the bait that capital uses to catch labor, and it catches it. We all love a man for his money, because he entertains us instructively ior his own interest. But who makes statistics, as a rule? Capital. Then why should it make them in the interest of production? Take cotton, for example. You read in the papers so many thous- and bales surplus; so many bales increase over last year. Do you know that this is true, Mr. Farm- er? Did you make more? Who did? Who gathered these figures? What for? Do they make cotton higher? What is your pulse when you road it, and have a bale to sell? I will tell you, I am going to sell; cotton is not g...

Jüíhough Mr. Mills claims to be end to the people and a Jeffer- ,n democrat, his actions prove thousands who have heretofore _oved and honored him, that he has no right to either distinction. He has arrayed himéélf on the side of Wall street and against the ^ people. Grover Cleveland declares not only against the free and un- limited coinage of silver, but in favor of completely demonetizing silver. And Mr. Mills cries out at once that gold is the only safe standard for money." Is this man, who so vehemently declares his democracy, aware of the fact that he has Blapped, not only the great industrial organizations, but the , party platform of his own state in the face? Of course he is. The trouble with R. Q. Mills is that j he has been so much honored by the people of Texas as to generate \ the idea in his plutocratic hea...

CongresH convened in regular session in December, 1861. Sec- retary Chase, in his report at that time, called attention to the fact that the circulation of bank notes • constituted a loan from the public to the banks, without expense to thein, and suggested the propriety of transferring this wholly or in part to the government which rep- resented the people. He said "it has been well questioned by the most eminent statesmen whether a currency of bank notes, issued by local institutions under state laws, is not, in fact, prohibited by the national constitution. Such emis- sions certainly fall within the spir- it, if not vithin the letter, of the constitutional prohibition of tlie omission of bills of credit by the states, and of making by them of anything except gold and silver coin a legal-tender in payment of debts.

It was revived and passed by the aid of some of the able gentlemen whose ob- jectiona to the sub-treasury plan is its alleged unconstitutionality and favorit- ism to one class of people at the cost of the rest. These numerous instances not only of governmental loans, but of actual do- nations for all claases of persons and under varied conditions, are not cited for criticism or crimination, but for il- luatration and argument.

Thu necessity for something of this Wnd has buen developed by the onward march of material prog- ress. For the last twenty-five years agriculture han, as compared with the other two great branches of production—manufacture and production—been rapidly becom- ing depressed and unprofitable. This depression during a period without a parallel of material prog- ress in the world's history is in- dicative of a potent cause and is worthy of the most careful analy- sis. For this purpose take two of the leadirg products of agriculture —wheat and cotton—and trace the changes made in regard to them during that period. ♦'Twenty-five years ago wheat was raised by fanners throughout the north generally as one of their leading money crops. Nearly all the work of gathering and market- ing it was done by hand; local mills, thickly scattered over the county, ground the flour f...

At this point began that system of enormous contracts that lias made millionaires at such a rapid rate by cheating and plundering the government.
