The Bourbon the Alliance was disap- that you did not discuss as their party bosses do. y agree with you that the , depressed condition of the interests is more largely the money monopoly than other one evil. Conclusive )f of this may be found in the ietorical fact that during the lat- 1 of the civil war the farmers le the Union lines, and for two after the war, the farmers of entire country prospered as they have never at any other time in American history. The present ' high tariff, without the modifica- tions since made, was then in full force. The extortion of railroad Rift*7• ' ■companies without any of the re- ; «trictions, state and national, that have since been made, was at its fullest tide. And the liquor traffic /was flourishing like "a green bay 3;" and yet, the farmer, bearing ¡ill these enormous and unjust bur- dens, prospered as he never has before or since in the history of the nation. ...

An Insidious Enemy to Mankind— Varieties Explained— Cures Disoui sed. BY Dr. S. B. HARTMAN. Dyspepsia is a term that is used to cover all chronic diseases of the diges tive system which produces either pain- ful, irregular or imperfect digestion of the food. While each case presents a slightly different history and combina- tion of symptoms, yet the cause of dys> pepsin can he traced to three sources. First, chronic: gastritis (gastric dyspep- sia); secoml, weakness of the stomach (atonic dyspepsia); third, sluggishness of the liver, pancreas and glands of the bowels (reflex dyspepsia). Gastric dys- pepsia is due to chronic intlamation of tbe stomach, and sometimes tbe duo- denum. For this condition I find Pe-ru-na to be an admirable remedy. In all cases it bringB prompt relief to the painful symptoms, and in a large pe...

The protection asked for the farmer by the Alliance is not such as would come to him through an import tax or a bounty fund. He WANTS NO PENSION out of the public treasury; no donation of government lands; no gratuities in the shape of loans without interest, ex- orbitant premiums and endorsements of his speculative schemes by the gov- ernment. He asks for no grant of ex- traordinary powers and privileges; ior the same privileges have been granted with more freedom and less reservation to other interests time and again.

fgpV! mSm SOUTHERN MERCURY. REFORM PRESS. Great West: The farmers don't hope so much for "magnificent crops" as they once used to. The big crops mean small prices—-but then the ltoiddle men get it, big or little. V K. of L. Journal: It may be true that money cannot be legislated into the pockets of the people, but the fact that legislation has taken money out of the pockets of the people right along remains undeniable. •** Clarion Ledger: Some of the clever gentlemen who are fighting the Alliance are inconsistent. In one breath they declare that its financial plan is iniqui- tous, because it is "legislation for the benefit of a class" (the farmers); and in the next breath, they declare it will ruin the farmers. Toiler: The sub-treasury idea is rap- idly gaining in popularity in Tennessee where it has been discussed. Our state president has declared his intention of speaking in every county in the state on this question, and challenges any respectable politician of either party to me...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. May 28. 91. Democracy ▼ . Party Prejudice. A DEMOCRAT. Just at this time a great howl is raised by the so-called democratic press against the Alliance and the sub-tyeasury bill. We venture nine-tenths of these howlers are depending on our crops for collec- tions and are, or ought to be, inter- ested in good prices for said crops. Every business man, merchant, lawyer, doctor and all professions ought to be deeply interested in the general prosperity of the coun- try. Now suppose, by the manipula- tion of our finance, contraction of the money and high rates of inter- est by the banks in moving crops, we fail to realize a fair market value, all other industries are af- fected. The object of the sub- treasury plan is to place this ma- nipulation of the finances beyond the power of the shy locks to con- trol or depress the value of sanie and extort unjust and ruinous rates of interest for the use of the money in buying the crops and enable the farmer to meet his demands...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. I it .Ú-J\ I Our Lecturer at Grandview. The quiet little city of Grand- view was electrified by an address from Brother Coleman of The Mercury. His address was well received, not only by Alliance men but by the mercantile frater- nity as well. Bro. Coleman is no agitator, but deals in facts and truths that cannot be denied onr refuted, and showed plainly that the farmers interests and the mer- chants interests and all honest la- bor and vocations were idetnical. Not only the merchants of Grand- view are accepting the Alliance de- mands as the way out, but from every nook and corner of our land -they are flocking to the great truths enunciated in the Alliance plat- form. Truly, brethren, this is en- couraging at this hour when Wall street New York, and Lombard street London have their press and hired emissaries scattering their partisan literature broad cast all over the land. The tariff ghost and the bloody shirt have become so everlastingly stale and rotten that i...

Ml ft, '91. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 f ¥ 4 that the man who has worked hard, economized and stinted even to parsimony during all these years, and paid one-half the principal and all the interest on his mort- gage or other indebteoness, is not as well off as when he began. The tyranny of this systematic contraction is clearly shown by the following: In 1866 two men had each $1,000. One let his money lay idle, while the other purchased 200 bushels of wheat and stored it, wheat then being worth $2 per bushel. In 1889 the man who had his money laying idle could buy 1,666 bushels of wheat, while the man who had invested in wheat could get only $3.00 in money for it. Here lies the canker tha is eat- ing the heart out of the nation, ancl must be stoppe- at cnce, if democratic government survives. Our ablest statesmen argue that we must have $50 per capita in circulation to perpetuate civiliza- tion. We now have $9 in circula- tion; none place it above this. This 1 aves us $41 short.

May 28. 91. SOUTHERN MERCURY. I IL 4 n The Bloody Bhirt Again—Blood Money. We see in the partisan press much criticism regarding the late Alliance convention at Waco, some trying to make it a dark lantern affair, and much ado about it being the goats and deadheads teaching the sheep how to vote, etc. And immediately they begin teaching with their dark lantern blood- money, headquarters in Washing- ton—blood money furnished by those who have deceived and plun- dered the masses for twenty-five years past. VVhcj is it that compose the ex- ecutive committees of the old par- ties? We will venture the asser- tion rtliat those, both state and national, who are in sympathy witH the money power. Who fur- p nishes the money to educate the people in partisan politics, and why should thev arouse this year to a renewed effort? Dark lantern, indeed!

May 28, 'ti. SOUTHERN MERCURY. Id jpfe.' Wfí INDEED! The agricultural classses who seize so readily upon the glittering offer of the sub-treasury scheme for more money and cheaper money, are not to be condemned without a hearing. Let us look at their side of the case, and hear what may be said for them. The farmers as a class are poor. They live isolated from the world and from each other. They work hard and long, in the heat of the summer sun and the chill of the winter wind. They are frugal and saving in their habits. Temper- ance is an almost universal virtue. And yet, with all their breaking labor, their vigorous self-denial, their frugality that verges upon parsimony, they lay by no wealth, or very little. A bad crop year comes; a flood washes the young plants out of the ground, or a drouth parches them and shrivels them up. The chinch bugs or the Hessian fly destroys the wheat fields, or the rust blights the grow- ing stalks. The boll worm devas- tates the cotton fields; chole...
