Many in ther zeal may do more than their share, but ail should support the cause according to their ability. The Economist has, up to date, printed, paid the postage upon, and distributed, at its own expense, over fifty thousand pounds of reform literature, and many poor men have spent thousands of dol- lars' worth of time, but all this does not reach the necessity. The money is needed, it is true, but the great neces- sity is that the rank and file of the order should make it their cause in fact and sup- port it by individual contributions. The Economist has received a letter from a good allianceman in New York state, impressed with the necessity for the use of funds to pay the expense of lecturers and the distribution o...

DALLAS, TEXAS, THURSDAY, JULY 16, 1891. \ WHOLE NO. 481. 40 w\ Linn Tanner on the Sub-Treasury Flan. I have been a much interested reader of the discussion going on for some time in your journal on the sub-treasury bill. I glean from such reading that the opposers of said bill urge as objections: 1st. 4 4It is unconstitu tional.'' 2d. "It is class legislation." 3d. "It is impracticable." 4th. "The people should sup- port the government and not vice versa." 5th. "It will concentrate too much appointive power in the hands of the government." 6th. "It would prove benefi- cial to speculators and middle men." These are the principle, if not the only reasons urged, and if you permit the space I will, as briefly as possible, notice the objections and at the same time point out some of the benefits. 1st. Is it constitutional ? The argument oftener u...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. had much special legislation done under the dark shadow of the con- stitution. He is allowed to pur- chase bonds with his greenbacks, and such bonds are non-taxable. The toiler must pay taxes on his money, the government accepts the bond purchased by the banker and pays him semi-annually 3y2 per cent in gold, calling it "security." The very good government which seems so fearful to enact class laws, then virtually gives, though it is called a loan of 90 per cent of ready printed national bank bills, to the banker to operate with, who is at liberty to loan for 12, 20 or more per cent to any individual who puts up go-d collateral. In all these we find class legis- tion, and such vicious legislation that as a consequence people are becoming hewers of wood and drawers of water to an aristocracy which will yet prove inimicable to the institutions of a free govern- ment by centralizing the wealth in the hands of a few. The sub-treasury plan or bill might be termed clays ...

At the close of the war named Germany forced upon France an indemnity or war fine of (principal and inter- est) $1,100,000,000, by contract to be paid in gold, in four years. The last payment of this fine to be paid in four years, was paid Sep- tember 5, 1873, two years *nd four months after treaty, one year and eight months before due. It is a most remarkable fact that of this $1,100,000,000 made payable in gold, Germany received from France but about $140,000,000 in gold. In this last payment gold rose te 2^ per cent above paper, but that only for three days.

It would be entertaining to the laborers in this country if the Globe-Democrat would inform the people who own the majority of the United States bonds, demo- crats or republicans. As far as Texas is concerned, the people were advised by the representa- tion to the banker's association that met and resoluted recently at Austin. Jno. J.

SOUTHERN MERCURY. July 16, 1891. POLITICAL PARTIES. Their Objects and Uses. E. L. DOHONEY. A political party occupies the same relation to the public policy seeks to inaugurate, that the caifolding does to a building during the process of erection. When the building is completed, the scaffolding, being of no further Use, is taken down. So of all the parties which have appeared on the arena of American politics. The first was the federal party, in- augurated by Washington and others, for the purpose of estab- lishing the federal government. Its work was accomplished during the administration of Washington and Adams, and the party, having nothing more to do, fell to pieces of its own weight. As soon as the federal constitu- tion was established, the proper construction of its powers became tho leading item in American poli- tics; and Thos. Jefferson and oth- ers founded the lirst Republican; party, whose policy was a strict construction of the constitution of the United States, and fo...

Dispatch: The Al- liance men constitute a large majority of the domocratic party in Virginia, and will have their way in the next state convention. They will support no candidate who is opposed to the measures they advocate. Dallas (Tex.) Liberator: We think the brand of Gain should be placed upon the forehead of the Farmers World that the people may know whereof it comes. It should be severe- ly let alone by all right-minded, right- thinking Alliance men who wish the order success upon its mission and who have its cause, progress and pros- perity at heart.

14 SOUTHERN MERCURY. uly 16, 1691. Senator Stanford Interviewed, Henry M. Field, of the New York Evangelist, recently interviewed Sena- tor Stanford concerning the land loan bill and he responded to the queries as follows: We give his answers that the people may have a correct idea of his views and his plan. "When you use paper money, the pa per only has a value because it has sil- ver and gold back on it." Mr. Stanford—"No! no! It is because the government attaches a legal tender value to it that givés to its owner the power to buy something of use to him in itself, and because it can be used for the purpose of making exchanges, set- tling accounts aud balances. It is be- cause the debtor can compel the credi- tor to accept it, and that means a ca- pacity for the redemption of money, of millions of dollars every day. Money on paper is as good as on gold and sil- ver, and needs no special means for re- demption other than is used for these two later materials, the value of each béin...

July 16, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 15 r Mr. 8tauford-"Our government would bold the mortgages until tbey were paid, and, as it would be receiving two per cent, this might prove one way of pay- ing the expenses of the government, while benefitting the whole nation by furnishing an abundant supply of mon- ey. The government cannot furnish money without a valuable considera- tion. How to get the money out is the question. The farmer then comes for- ward to borrow, and gives this unim- peachable security of real estate, and takes the money which he passes into general circulation, giving the govern- ment two per cent for the use of its credit. I think this is a fair rate of in- terest, as the individual should be wil- ling to pay for the use of the credit of the entire people of the country. This money goes out into active use, caus- ing an increased production and pros- perity. It becomes a public blessing, and, at the same time, the interest upon it takes care of the expenses of the gov...
