June 18. 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. V a ff: ■ \ Í it .J ernment would have the four hun- dred millions dt- coin to put under to paper money. This would make a specie base circulation. The vote on this bill was as follows: Republicans for it 57, republicans against it 52. All the leading re- publicans voted against the bill. The scallawags and carpet-baggers voted for it. The party was al most equally divided. Twenty seven democrats voted solidly for it, with the fifty-seven republicans and fixed the destiny of the people under the power of monopoly. If the twenty-seven democrats had voted with the fifty-two republicans the bill would have been lost, and there never would have been a dol- lar of the people's money destroyed or a bond sold. Andrew Johnson, a democratic president, signed the bill and made it a law. Why did Andrew John- son and the twenty-seven demo- crats vote with the fifty-seven re- publicans? The twenty-seven democrats and the president were wholly responsible for the ...

The issues in American politics for the last quarter of a century have been, and yet are, betweep monopoly in all its varied forms and the producing classes." Our Statesmen have departed from the true line of democracy;" "equal rights to all and- specia'f prlVilfegfep to none," and have burdertéd the people with class legislation, con- ferring official favors on various forms of monopoly . The most' op- pressive of these is the money mo- nopoly, as it is operated by th national banks, the robber roosl on Wall street, and the so^calle trusts. By reason of thé > shial volume of money in Circuliati' these evil agencies are' able to force the farmer to sell his pro&j ucts at low prices and buy thenj back in merchandise at high pii-j ces. The legitimate remedy for this financial oppression is tó aboli ish the national banks and payoff the U. S. bonds. But as our very able statesmen, both democratic? and republican,'saw pro...

I Pírt 6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. June 18,1891. Sural Cogitations. W. P. LAUGHTER. The good wife has gone away to stay a week, and left me to keep house and cook for the larger boys. The smaller children have stom- achs yet, and the mother does not leave them to my tender mercies. She was afraid the messes they would be called on to eat would ¡ materially derange their digestive apparatus. The larger boys have leather bags for stomachs anyway, and are not easily damaged. I al- most feel sorry for them, but if the hardship be great they can console themselves with the reflection that the "peck of dirt" that all must eat will be disposed of, as far as they are concerned, before the week is out. I have got the boys off to the field at work. They think I am digging potatoes. I may be mis- taken as to what they are doing also, for the evening is warm and the creek handy. We have had a big barbecue at Goose Pond, and an anti said all the geese were there. Bro. Perdue gave us the gospel of the ne...

Coleman of The Mercury editorial staff, yes- terday, upon the principles and purposes of tho Farmers Alliance. , His store of information in regard to methods of those gigantic corpo- rations which are crushing the life's-blood out of individual enter- prise and are slowly and surely undermining our government, is almost unbounded. Those who claim to be judges say that it was the best and most instructive public speech that was ever delivered in Gonzales on the purposes and principles of the Al- liance and the reform movement of the times. The speech was well received by persons outside of the order, and is calculated to re- move much of the prejudice that might be said to exist. Bro.

For another parallel, the government is now buying silver bullion and paying for it with notes printed for the ] urpose. Senator Coke voted against that act, too. The Alliance advocates appear to be satis- fied that if they are only opposed by those who have been as strict as Sena- tor Coke in applying his principle they will be in a large majority. And it must be said in fairness that in any comprehensive criticism of the sub- treasury scheme it will not be ignored that the plan proposed includes print- ing the currency to be loaned, not rais- ing it by taxation. Those who have heretofore advocated any form of V printed currency issued by the govern- ment on deposits of currency or other- wise, are debarred from pursuing Sena- tor Coke's line of argument.

A story which is going the rounds of the goody-goody press reads very mach like the yarn of the timid little girl who discovered that the big bear wasn't a bear after all, but a fairy godmother who loved her and would protect her. The mouthpieces of hypocritical and sanctimonius robbers delight to print this story, with comments detailing the beauties of a unity and harmony be- tween all classes which doe3 not exist, and which can never exist while one class has the power to dictate to another as to its means of employment and the amount of return therefrom. Briefly told, this sweet little tale with a heavenly moral is as follows: There was a meeting of working girls and some rich ladies in a New York mansion, at which measures for the improvement of the condition of the former were con- sidered. A girl who was a tailoress rose when the meeting was abou...

All of their replies to the third question are substantially the same. Free and unlimited coinage of silver! They all fail to say what amount per capita ap- proximately the free and unlimited coinage of silver would give the country. This kind of twaddle is getting to be monotonous. "The people want something definite and they expect their congressmen to furnish them with data and details to avert the evils they admit do exist. Mills and Reagan are honest enough to say publicly that we need $50 per capita, and that we actually have only $9 in circula- tion, but it seems they arc the only members of congress from Texas that have the backbone to make a statement. Let us see; 30 per cent reduc- tion ofjhe tariff would give us $3 per capita in circulation; the free and unlimited coinage of silver would give us and additional $1 and still leave us ...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. June 25,1891. The Judiciary Amendment. Before voting on the judiciary amendment, the citizens of Texas will reasonably inquire what is the necessity of this amendment, and what good will it accomplish? In answering the question I would first; state that the amendment maíces no change in any of the courts below the supreme court, except it gives the district court general jurisdiction. It also gives the legislature power when the business requires it, or when the people demand it, to create crimi- nal courts, to try criminal cases, and leave the district and county courts with their civil jurisdic- tion. But it is in the supreme court's cases where the great change is made. We have to-day a supremo court of three judges at a salary of $3500 each, to decide the civil cases sent up from the; district courts of the state. To assist the judges there are six other judges called commissioners of appeals at salaries of $3500 each. Now when the commissioners of appeals de...
