SOUTHERN MERCURY. June 4, 1891. unanimity and readiness with which they were adopted, should convince even the politicians that the people have a proper conception of the evils of the present system of government, and propose to correct them. There are, however, those prominent in boss- ing both parties who are interested in perpetuating these evils, who weuld lose their occupation if they were cor- rected, and as a consequence they in their selñsliness would rather see their party destroyed than to see it reformed. If such succeed in dominating both parties, they will drive from their ranks all true American citizens, leaving only the boodlers to bemoan their folly in the fall of 1892. The issue is now fairly presented to every candid friend of free institutions, to either reform his party or quit it and accept one embodying the reforms calculated to carry out the principles contemplated by the framers of the constitution. The people will no longer submit to be dominated by corrupt...

SpP;?4$S June 4,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. I tariff law would reduce the tari if receipts $40,000,000. That would make the tariff for 1891 amount to §189,000,000, and taking all other receipts to be the same as in 1890, the total receipts for 1891 would be $373,000,000. This same McKinley & Co. voted ap- propriations and expenditures for the year 1891, to the amount of about $500,000,000. Now if they really thought that this affair would reduce the reve- nue, where on earth did they expect the money to come from to pay all that $500,000,000? That's statesmanship with a vengeance. **# This is the way the Carthage Banner puts it: Alliance men like Waco. Alliance man like one another. Alliance men don't like traitors. Alliance men are farmers. Alliance men are democrats, republi- can and third party men. Alliance men are not traitors. "You just ought to have heard Wil- kin s talk!

. SOUTHERN MERCURY. June 4, 1891. Senator Cranford on the Sub- Treasury. At an Alliance gathering at Black Jack Grove Senator Cran- ford discusscd the sub-treasury question, but made no sensible ar- gument against it. His arguments were silly and unworthy the name. He intimated that the sub-treasu- ries would be filled with horned cattle, sheep, goats, etc. Any man with common sense knows that all laws have limitation. We might apply this ar- gument against the storage of silver bullion in the sub- treasury at Washington. Why may we not apply the argument justas well? The government al- lows the man who owns bullion to store it in the sub-treasury at Washington, and why not say that we ought to be allowed to store our chickens, cats and dogs and draw money, as to ridicule our plan by saying that horned cattle, etc., would bo put in our sub-treasury plan? There is only one explanation needed, and that is this: They have got no logical argument to make against the sub-treaSury; theref...

June 4, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 1 ! w \ State Lecturer Perdue at Thorn- ton, Texas. At an early hour last night the citizens of Thornton and surround- ing country began assembling at the Institute to hear Bro. J. M. Perdue. The Farmers Alliance men were in the majority, though we were pleased to see many of our good citizens there who are honestly op- posed to some of our demands. About 8 o'clock he was intro- duced to the audience and began immediately to expound the true doctrine of the Alliance to about 200 or 250 men. Not a lady was in the house, although I had in- vited them through our home pa- per to be there. However, the men did not listen to anything that would not have been equally ap- preciated by the ladies. From 8 o'clock to some minutes after 11, Bro. Perdue had the at- tention of his audience. Now and then some one could n^t see it just thai, way would take his hat, and with due respect for the speaker, walk quietly out and go, no doubt, to his little bed to dream of...

Harry Tracy having been introduced by G. T. (lass, said: Ladies and Gentlemen:—• The Farmers Alliance was born in Texas. Its originators were the poorest farmers in our state. The necessities of the hour, and the sound democratic principles it enunciated, gave the organization an impetus unparalleled in history. Its battle cry of ''equal rights to all, exclusive privileges to none," spread with almost race-horse speed, from neighborhood to neighborhood, from hill-top to valley, and from valley to hill-top again—not even the mighty, sweeping tide of the Father of Waters could stay its onward course—till to-day it covers 35 states of this union, and has enrolled under its snow-white banner nearly four million Americans who detest tyranny with the most in- tense detestation, and worship alone at freedom's shrine. Ere lon...

Numerous reports have been made of the results of the recent conference at Cincinnati, but the following from the Farmer, of At- lanta, Ga., is eminently correct, and in full accord with our views previously expressed: 4'This action was right and prop- er. The southern Alliancemen are the backbone of the democratic party, and have battled for its suc- cess in days that tried men's souls. If they can secure relief in the old party, they greatly prefer doing so, and will prove as loyal in the fu- ture as in the past. But let the democratic leaders bear in mind that the eyes of brave and deter- mined men are turned upon them, and they are expected to right the wrongs of the toiling masses of the land; and not only reform our ini- quitous tariff laws, but give the country financial relief. The peo- ple understand the power of the republican president, but they want to see what the overwhelming democratic majority in the house will do, If that body passes bills in accordance with the All...

One of the questions up for debate re- lates to the inauguration of a policy in the United States which shall establish on a permanent basis amicable relations between employers and employes. These relations, as a general proposi- tion, to use a common phrase, are "strained"—that is to say, instead of mutual confidence there exists mutual suspicion, the result being widespread unrest, forebodings of evil too often realized in industrial affairs.

The Twilight CI til —Mglit and Activity Everywhere. To show the point to which intellectual activity goes in America, I cannot do better than speak of the Nineteenth Century club. Two or three years ago Mr. Courtlandt Palmer (since deceased) conceived the idea of inviting,his friends to meet twice a month in his drawing room for the purpose of discussing the important questions of the day. His invitation was accepted with alacrity, and thus the club, which consists of lady members as well aa gentlemen, was formed. The association proceeds in a manner as simple as it is practical. Is it decided, for instance, to pass an evening in discussing socialism? The president invites a well known Socialist to come and explain his views before the members of the club; he invites, also, an anti-Socialist of...

In 1890 A seld his wheat at the market price, 65c per bushel, for $325.00. B, with his $1,000, bought at the market price, 65c per bushel, 1,600 bushels of wheat. This is precisely the game the bankers have played through their servants, the congress of the United States. The result of all this juggling is that the farmers who in 1850 owned five-eighths of the whole wealth in the United. States, in 1890 barely own one-fifth of it. Yet, all these years, they have paid 81 per cent of all the laxes, and constituted one-half the popula- tion. The one-fifth they now own is made up mostly of land at inflated preces, upon which they pay taxes, while it produces less in amount, and must be sold for less than half it would sell for 24 years ago. This is the canker that continually is eating the heart out of the people and destroying the republic. The res...

These objectors make a great ado because the agents provided for under the sub-treasury plan cannot be elected, under our national constitution, by the people, and say the sub-treasury system will fill the county with federal appointees, who will repeat the tyrannies and horrors of the dark days of reconstruction. These gentlemen forget that Art. II, Sec. 2, of tie constitution, the very section they rely upon, contradicts their statement. That section provides that congress may empower any court of law to make these appointments. Would the courts of Texas or of any other state make appointments that were obnoxious to the people? It is an insult to our judiciary to make such assertions. Sensible men become dis- gusted with such demagoguery. Have we not now over 60,000 postmasters and abou...
