( FCJ < r :■ ' v,'. !/ - ñy: June 25, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. THE LECTURE FIELD. R. W. COLEMAN. AT ELGIN, BASTROP COUNTY. R. W. Coleman was on time to- day and gave the people of this vi- cinity one of his best lectures. He is a very cool and forcible speaker. His manner of address was so plain that all could easily see his points as he made them. The large crowd out to-day paid close attention to all that he said and expressed themselves as well pleased with but very few ex- ceptions. It was a good lecture and came in a good time, and will do a great deal of good. We en- joyed his good hits hugely: but what pained this scribe was that so many farmers staid at home and humped their backs in the fields making cotton for the plutocrats of Wall street to gamble on. When, oh, when will we farmers see our- selves as others see us, and learn our rights and duties as citizens of this republic? Echo answers when? Give us more men like Coleman and after awhile perhaps we will learn a litt...

June 25, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 * prophetxc. The fact that the Farmers' Alli- ance is a political oagariization", arid at the same time not and neye.r will become a political party, is bothering party bosses wonderful- ly. The Mercury desires to en lighten these anxious ones as to why the Farmers' Alliance ta ver will become a political party. - In the first place, every efil we now suffer, has been thrust upon us through partisan political preju- dices, has, robbed the peopi? of their common weal, and substi- tuted for it sectional hate. Tho Alliance was orgainzed to destroy sectional hate. Its success has been . phenomenal in uniting the hitherto estranged sections in the bonds of fraternal love in spite of the efforts of sycophants and squirt rel headed party bosses, north or south. It is backed in this effort by every principle that is good ¿aid great. The father of this great country, George Washington, in his "political legacy" says: "I have already intimated to you the dan...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. 11 HEV ing proposition: "Make deficits in ap- propriations and cover them by an is- sue of legal tender notes from time to time until the circulation is sufficiently re-enforced." This, nor nothing like¿t can be found in any democratic plat- form, even in the platform of 1808. Yet it is a proposition that Col. Culberson had a right to make within the party, but myself or any other democrat has the same right to our opinion,expressed by a bill or otherwise. "If reduction in the tariff wont re- duce annual revenue, then it will have to be abolished entirelv,or expenses in- creased to make deficits." I would say this proposition is a "monstrosity," for this would not make it so. "Moreover my respect for Col. Culbfij !i, as well as the great Napo- leon who originated this scheme by his fiat forbids this. If the colonel will at some future time be more specific in outlining his policy of deficits thp peo- ple might accept it in lieu of all other measures. ...

Which the Old Parties Are Slleut About—Enough to Justify a Revolution — Hypocrisy Exposed — An Artlclo by IX. W. Ayer. ICopyright, 1801, by the Reform Press News Association.] If there is any one thing on earth which the old party liners and partisans are regretting and pining over it is the provision they made for securing a re- port of the mortgage indebtedness of the country. This provision was exacted from them mainly by the Alliance. It has been said, and perhaps truthfully, that if there had been the slightest an- ticipation of the astounding revelations brought out by this work the appropria- tion for carrying it on would have never been ¡nade, for concealment of vital facts and statistics seems to have been the preferred policy of the majority of the shapers of national legislation for years past.

For some years many American mer- chants, or rather speculators, tired of the gradual accumulation of gain by or- dinary commerce, have combined, and by the employment of large capital have intercepted various commodities in their transit from the producers to the con- sumers. Then, being in a position to "control the market," they were able to charge the public whatever they pleased. ThiB was called making a "ring" or a "comer." Frequently they cleared great gain. Sometimes they failed to do so, ttttd encountered more or less loss; and sometimes, as in copper, both results eri- Stted.

WHOLE NO. 479 What Is the Alliance Outlook? This question is being asked by the enemies as well as the friends of the Alliance in every section of this broad land. Statesmen, poli- ticians, farmers, laborers, all class- es feel interested in the develop- ments awaiting the success or the failure of this great uprising of the common people. For the encour- agement of the friends of the move- ment and the confusion of its ene- mies we give the following infor- mation gleaned from the New York Herald—a paper by no means friendly to the movement, yet one of the most active and ex- tensive news gatherers in the land. In order to get a fair and reliable report of the condition of the Alli- ances letters of enquiry were ad- dressed to the leading Alliance men in the different states in the union. ...

Below are given the letters show- ing the growth and sentiment of Alliance in the different states: George A. Scott, of the New York Alliance, reports the growth rapid, there having been 16,000 additions since the Ocala meeting but says the Alliance is no party and has no such idea. The strength in Pennsylvania is more than 20,000 and is growing rapidly. They are reported as fa- voring giving each of the old par- ties a fair trial and if they fail to heed our demands then resort to independent action. Party ties are setting lightly on their should- ers, writes their president II. C. Dunning. J.J. Silvey of the Virginia Alli- ance declines to respond.

July 2, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. y I j 1 Don't Be Hasty. It has been my fortune or mis- fortune to be a member of the Alli- ance ever since its organization, and having been permanently con- nected with it I am often asked my opinion in regard to the Cin- cinnati convention and the Alliance in politics. I am seldom on the fence about any issue or matter of public interest—always advocating principle and not policy. I con- stantly hear men argue and say that the Alliance has gone into pol- itics and organized a third party. Now it does seem to me that any sensible man that keeps himself posted certainly knows better thai to think the the Alliance responsi- ble for the Cincinnati convention and its action. While I say em- phatically that the Alliance or- ganization had nothing whatever to do with the calling of the Cin- cinnati convention and opposed it, yet its action was right and proper so far as those who participated in it is concerned. Certainly as citi- zens of the United States...

The following is an extract from the address of ex-Senator Miller of Gonzales beforte the bankers' con- vention recently held: "The organization known as the Farmers' Alliance, which has come into political power, is hos- tile to banks and their systems. This organization is one the most dangerous political institutions in this country. It is rendered more dangerous by reason of the charac- ter of the leaders. We all know that most of the leaders of the Far- mers' Alliance are not men of abil- ity, are not men who have been successful in any line of life, and yet this class of men formulate tho political theories of this govern- ment, they formulate its financial policy, they formulate tho busi- theories of a large majority of a farming population of the state of Texas. They not only formu- late them, they disseminate them through their agents known as dis- trict lecturers of the Farmer?' Al- liance. Now and then y...

Jufy 2,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. V; The Scheme Unfolded. T. Bennett in Mexla Ledger. That a gigantic scheme was in- augurated during the last sitting of the legislature to uproot and de- stroy the Alliance order in Texas, has been to those who have been watching the affair, palpably plain, and the circular known as the Austin manifesto was simply a forerunner. The scheme has ma- terialized; a paper has been estab- lished; a call has been sent out for a meeting at Fort Worth on the •10th and 11th of July for the pur- pose of organization. This is a war of leaders. Men whom the order has made promi- nent and elevated to high positions have become antagonistic and threaten the dissolution of our or- der. It now becomes the duty of the order to look the matter squarely in the face and throttle their purposes. The grievances set forth by those parties, and that they propose to remedy are: 1. They are opposed to the sub-treasury. 2. Their opposition to the steer- ing committee. 3. The devia...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. July 2, mi. No Reason For it. I. B. REAMS. Mr. Editor, where can I buy a distillery.. I and my neighbors have a fine lot of corn and no chance to sell it for the cost of production; the freight will eat up half of it if we ship it, and if we feed it to stock there is no market for the stock, and I don't kuow what to do with it to get pay for my work making it unless I distill it. Then the government will take care of it for me and I can draw the full value of my labor in cash, and the wevil and the railroads will both wait for a new crop to fatten on. It is true I very much dislike this plan as I am strictly a temperance man but I am told that everything is fair in war, and there is a war on us farmers here now about who shall have the last dol- lar. We farmers need cash to pay our taxes, but Mr. Monopoly says "rustle for it, you lazy scamp." Now I have worked hard and lived hard and yet that other man got the money in spite of me.

To the man who, even casually observes the trend of events, it is evident that plutocracy is deter- mined to make a desperate strug- gle before they yield to the just demands of tie people. .It is true that the reform element has so far been unable to force representative men of the opposition into the con- flict, but their holding back is only another sign of the times. They show by this action a desire to put forward tHeir irresponsible minions and draw the peoples' fire on a foe, "the conquering of which would merely soil the conqueror," while they themselves entrenched behind an impenetrable silence lay schemes to further oppress the poor.

10 SOUTHERN MERCURY. July 2, 1891. REFORM PRESS. How does this sound for fairness and honesty? Congressman Oates from Alabama says in an interview with a Globe-Democrat reporter that "too many of our folks are trying to make friends with the Alliance in hopes of holding their own hereafter. They but deceive themselves; the Alliance folks are not fooled. The fact is we have got to fight the Allianco right out with all our might or it will get the best of us in the Soutb. No man can believe in the sub-treasury and the land-loan scheme and be a Democrat. What we must do is to organize against the Alliance and beat it out of exist- ence. If we do not it will beat us. In every Democratic convention, for it is in these conventions that the Alliance seeks to get control, a resolution should be offered condemning the sub- treasury scheme as unconstitutional and undemocratic. If this resolution is voted down, the convention is an Al- liance and not a Democratic convention and the Democrats s...
