Thorough agitation and careful investigation and study will develop the right cause. National Economist, (Washington, D. C.): The sub-treasury plan cannot be destroyed by great con sti tu- nal arguments, but as soon as ever some man proposes something better it will die a natural death. Here is a grand opportunity for destruction without verbal deluges or stentorian combats with time. In giving away this thing, that the way to cause the sub-treasury plan to die it to produce a thing which is better, all re- sponsibility to the Alliance is here as- sumed; nay more, if the proposer of that thing be like Gen. Washington, in that his modesty surpasses his mer- it, if he will send the thing here the public shall have knowledge of it. But if any man undertake again to say that the better thing...

A special from Jackson, Miss., to the Memphis Appeal-Avalanche says: "The democratic mass meeting of Calhoun oonnty on Saturday last indorsed the entire Ocala platform, and agreed not to support candidates in tho coming primary for the legislature who will not pledge themselves to vote for sub- treasury senators. It was also resolved to measure candidates for the county and local offices by the Ocala yardstick. Maj.

Does lie suppose mat men of principle will form a coalition witty. their life-long political enemies and unite in the ranks of one of the old parties? It is true that unprincipled men, political bosses and wire-pullers, willing henchmen of the plutocracy in both old parties, have already formed a coalition in South Carolina, and the in- dications are that such coalitjfm will become general. 13y what name will this coalition be known? In those days where, oh, where will be the democratic party? True alliaucemen have no love or afHu- ity for either of the plutocratic twins, but would just as soon assist the re- publican party to kill the democratic party as to assist democrats to destroy the republican party.

DALLAS, TEXAS, THURSDAY, JULY 9, 1891. WHOLE HO. 480. The Ocala Demanda. PENINSULAR FARMER. Thlé^hark which distinguishes the Alliance from all other farmers' organizations is the sub-treasury plan, which it has origninated and and advocated. It is this demand that the partisan politician is most opposed to, and the one which all the plutocratic organs most berate and denounce. But it meets not only open opposition from the di- rect enemies and opponents of the farmers' movement in any shape that movement may take, but there is also another sort of opposition concentrated upon it; the advice of those who profess their friendship for the order while they are doing nothing for its cause, is uniformly to drop the sub-treasury plan; then they will do. wonders ior us. What then, is there about the plan that provoke...

The features, therefore, in the Al- liance sub-treasury plan, are neither new nor untried. The remaining main point is the farmer receiving an advance on his products before their sale. This has been done by warehousemen, commission men and others upon a variety of productions. It is too common a thing in business to call for more than a mere mention as a fact, it is simply varied in the goyernment acting in this case as the warehouseman and making the advance, but it certainly requires no argument to prove that money advanced by the government has exactly the same qualities as if it had been received from a private person or firm ? It is in itself nothing new nor unsoun...

Ever fraternally, J. B. Gay. Columbus, Texas. A Word From Fisher County. Our forefathers tell us this is free country, yet I differ from them. I see several arguments by different men against the sub- treasury plan, but they don't give anything better, and men that call themselves members of the Alli- ance. I want to say right here that every sub-Alliance that has a member that does not endorse every plank, strip and splinter of the Alliance platform ought to get out of the Alliance just as quick as possible. Others argue where is the government going to get money to build these ware- houses with? Th...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. July 9. 1891. PBV88 COMMENT. Centerville Democrat: Ex-Sen ator Ingalls, in a newspaper article over his signature, practically ad- mits that it was Wall street golc that carried Indiana and New York for Harrison in 1888,* anc warns his party that the same method will not do for 1892. It would be a sensible thing for Mills, Cleveland & Co. to under- stand that the people believe they are in it on the same one tor '92. Fort Worth Gazette: Guverriur Buchannon, of Tennessee, says he is a democrat and in favor of the sub-treasury scheme. If he hai said he was a democrat and in fa- vor of the force bill, it would have ■ounded as well. Any other plutocrat would use the same chaste and sensible argu- ment. The Alliance killed the force bill and all well informed people know it. Yet they are tréated by the bosses as if they were scheming against the best in- terests of the people. The San Antonio Light, after fin examination of the 11th census says: If there was an even...

We propose to examine and see what class legislation is and what parties have been instrumental in having class legislation enacted and.when enacted. We understand class in politics to mean part of the whole nation. We propose to show and prove by the history of the United States government that the United States government has always been a class government and only passes class laws, and where two or more parties exist. All legislation must necessarily be class legislation. There were two parties in the United States, one known as the fed- eral party led by George Washing- ton and his colleagues who wanted a republican form of government. That party, formed the constitu- tion and administered the govern ment eigrii years. They passed the following class laws: United States bank corporation, whisky tax, tariff laws and may other class laws not necessary to repeat here. After the lapse of eight ...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. July 9,1891. Bight Wrongs No One. It appears from present indica >ns that capitalist and combiná- is are determined to hold down le price of cotton and other sta- le articles of agriculture. This scheme has been successfully prac ticed for several years, and a com- jaratively few men have grown im- iensely rich by it, while very ma- iiy thousands have been brought to poverty and misery by that un- ; just method. They have each year's crop priced and sold before it is gathered, and by contraction in the volume of the circulating medium, they force down prices so that they can buy up the entire crop and fill their contracts for fu- ture delivery, and make them- selves large profits. Now as a gen- eral thing, farmers have been | forced to get their supplies to go on while producing their crops on time, in most cases, have had to pay from 20 to 50 per cent above cash price. And to pay these greatly enhanced priced with pro- duce reduced below the actual cost ! of ...

He proved'that they took over $200,000,000 annually out of the farmers products for handling, etc. He said he was sorry to hear a man of Col. Brown's ability and age say that the true interests of the northern and southern farmer were not the same. Such an assertion was un- worthy of him. God had made the entire country, and in his wis- dom had given one section one climate and another a different one, and one part of the country one soil and another a different soil, and that civilization demanded that a man in Kansas should use the products of all climates, that the farmer of the future who suc- ceeds, must cultivate that product that his soil and climate permit him to raise at a profit, and no others; that transportation had knocked distance out of the count; that in future transportation would be so cheap that climate influ...

10 SOUTHERN MERCURY. July 9, 1891. REFORM PRESS. Peter Shippman in (Minn.) Voice: was a Union soldier nearly three years and part of the time an officer of color- ed troops. I was considered a right good republican by the plutocrats so long as I closed my eyes to the corrup- tion in the party and voted the straight ticket without protest. But when I protested against open robbery and raised my voice against corruption, my annihilation was determined upon. They at once began the report that I was a fraud, a good for nothing agita- tor and that my service during the dark dark days of the civil war consisted in "teaching niggers how to steal chick- ens." Yet thev claim they are the soldiers' best friends. The plutocrats have no claim on our starry banner. It belongs to the toilers who defended it exclusively. They considered their miserable existence too precious to risk themselves in defense of that piece of bunting which has not so much mean- ing as the striped blanket has to a Bioux...

If the crops of the country can he handled by the banks, to a great extent on an artificial currency due to a scarcity of circulating medium, I mean checks, bills óf ex- change, etc., this currency issued by the banks to the full value of the crops, then it would be safe to handle these same crops upon money issued by the government, based on the same crops and only issued to the extent of 80 per cent of the valuation of the products. 2. As to its passing on a gold basis. Now, if the government pays it out as a gold dollar, it will be received by the government in payment of the debt on * the same basis, and as to its passing among the people on a gold basis, it is well known that the price of cotton and wheat is fixed in England, which has a rigid single gold standard, and if the price of the security is regulated by ♦he gold standard, the price of the notes ...

14 SOUTHERN MERCURY. July 9,1891. .THE ALLIANCE TACTICS. Never before has the national house been put in order for such an early cam paign, The recent Cincinnati confer ence is by many of the partisan papers regarded as the signal gun of an active campaign. This is important from an alliance standpoint, because both par ties give as a reason for their early activity that they "are conducting a campaign of education," and that it will take time and money properly and legitimately used. The reason this is of great interest to alliancemen, and should receive more than a passing notice from them, is that the education proposed by these active partisan pa pers of both sides is one in direct antagonism and opposition to the principles of the Farmers' Alli- ance. With the exception of the Atlanta Constitution and a few others, the great metropol tan press of the country is actively opposed to the sub- treasury plan, the land loan bill, the free coinage of silver, the government control of ...
