July 23, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. ' (v . > I "\ Híb assertion that Andrew John- son was a democratic presiden t is on a strict par with his other bra- een perversions. Every intelli- gent school boy in tho land knows that Andrew Johnson was was nominated and elected in 1864 as vice-president on the repub- lican ticket with Abraham Lincoln, and for trying to carry out the lib- eral policy of the fated Lincoln to- ward the south, he incurred the bitter hatred of a majority of his own party, and they tried to im- peach him. We believe that the act of con- gress reinstating Gen. Porter was an act of justice, and such was the expressed belieF of Qeti. Gratit oil this subject. The practice of re- tiring military officers on pay is wrong, and we well remember see^ ing and reading a speech of Ml'. Reagan in congress, wherein he strongly denounced such class lcg= islation.

July 32. 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. r'á L ; y INEXCUSABLE INCONSIS- TBNCY. Business failures for the first six months of the present year are re- ported by R. G. Dunn & Co. to number 6074 as against 5385 dur- ing the same period in 1890. The increase of 689 failures is unusual- ly large. The extent of liabilities is also excessive. The amount owing by parties who failed in 1891 foots up to $92,000,000, while for the same period in 1890 it was only $65,000,000, indicat- ing an increase of $27,000,000. Notwithstanding the extent of the casualties and other adverse cir- cumstances, reports from all parts of the country, furnished for the semi-annual business outlook, in- cate a fairly healthy condition of trade and excellent prospects in view of the large increase of wealth from the growing crops and active industrial enterprises.—Greenville Banner.

SOUTHERNMERC U R Y. July 23, 1891. Hall's Argument. A DEMOCRAT. Every man who opposes the sub-treaury plan or a similar sys- tem of relief, favors the present bank extortion interest policy, which robs him in what he buys and sells. Every merchant who buya and sells on time has his notes thrown into the banks by the wholesaler who indorses and draws on the notes, paying bank interest charged lip in the note, and which the retailer charges up to his customers in the price of his goods or goes to the wall. Again the farmer sells his cotton and * grain to the buyer who has made arrangements with the bank to ad- vance at 12 per cent, which he charges up to the farmer in the price of the cotton. The farmer is robbed of interest both ways. Any man that submits to this unjust evtortion and is not in favor of ; the relief offered by the sub-treas- ury is either ignorant of his own interest or blinded by partisan prejudice in the interest of the sliylocks robbing him.

July 23. 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. The democrats came. A mar- velous assault was opened upon every man of prominence who had remained true to the Alliance. Planned by consummate skill, with a concert of action most perfect, the onslaught was projected simul- taneously from every point along the line. The arms chosen for the attack were not such as brave men use on the open field of battle; but the weapons and tactics adopted were such as cravens and moral desperadoes employ in the assas- sination of character and reputa- tion. A new style of attack is suggest- ed. The editor of the Farm and Ranch is a brave and courageous gentleman; has probably become disgusted with the sneaking das- tardly style of tactics that have, so far, resulted only in bringing dis- grace and contempt upon the as- sailants. Many years ago, an agitator— they called him a babbler, the w ord blatant was not yet coined— rose up and declared "My house shall be called the house of God, but ye have made it a den of t...

SOUTHERN MERCURY, July 23,1891. REFORM PRESS. Gandview (Tex.) Sentinel: The Ft. Worth Gazette devoted over one whole page to boomiug up the convention. But that's all right and very natural. A big engine hitched onto a few empty box cars makes more fuss than a whole train loaded, See! Salinas (Cal.) Index: In 1866, the money in circulation was $53 per capita of population, and times were good; now it is less than $10—perhaps not over $5—and times are hard. Egypt, Rome and Greece went down to rise no more when their lands got into four per cent of their respective popula- tions, and the United States is rapidly drifting toward that fate, The farmers movement is calculated to check this downward courq and savs the country. The weapon with which they expect to accomplish this great result is the bal- lot. If 1892 should pass without re- dress, then there is no hope. Grandview (Tex.) Sentinel: The Ft. Worth Gazette is not to blame. If a daily paper ever did its best, the Ga- zette has. ...

Hi*: Sub-Treasury "Foolishness"—By Some Who are Not of the Fools. Everybody but gold bugs has al- ready admitted the necessity of more money. Whose business is it to supply the demands? The Alliance maintains that the national government alone has the power under the constitution "to coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin and fix the standard of weights and meas- ures." It is a power and a duty that the federal government supply the de- mands for more money. How shall it be done? The existing method includes three ways: 1. By lending money to national banks at 1 per cent per annum. upon United States bonds as se- curity—which money is then loaned by the banks to the people at 10 per cent to 12 per cent. 2. Silver and gold certificates is- sued to owners of bullion, whe...

AT GONáAESv One of the most effective and beet received lectures ever deliv- ered to the 4'great common peo- ple" on the principles of the Alli- ance and other reform organiza- tions, was delivered at Gonzales on the 16th inst. The spacious court house was packed, so that there was scarcely standing room, and the frequent bursts of applause evidenced the pleasure with which the speech was received. He began his address by stating that there is a general and growing feeling of unrest in the minds of the great common people; that they were investigating as never before the cause of the great finan cial depression, the extreme scarc ity of money, their inability to "make both ends meet," and seek ing with all the earnestness of their souls to find some measure that would relieve them from the thralldom of that slavery which they Fee is threatening them.

Now if we ever did swear (but we dont), we would say d—d such a law. But this is not all. Money gives a fearful leverage in shaping hu- man affairs. Now if said banker during the time, foreclosed a few mortgages, and bid in the property at half its real value (which was often done) then there is no esti- mating what his profits really were.

July 30,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. Gov. Hogg on the Alien Land Question. 4'Further acquisition of title to or interestjin land by foreign land corporations should be prohibited, and those having possession of, title to, or interest in real 'estate should be given ample time in which to alienate it to natural per- sons, and to leave the state on pre- scribed penalties and forfeiture." —Gov. Hogg's message, July 21, 1891. From the above extract it is not a reasonable conclusion that Gov. Hogg will recommend the repeal of the alien land law passed by the recent legislature, even should he call an extra session of the legisla- ture. The governor is eminently correct in his views on the question and the Alliance men of Texas state stand squarely with him. "The present executive can nev- er feel justified in adhering to the practice of hiring out convicts or of permitting them to work for cor- porations and private individuals in any form whatever."—Gov.

Banker Miller Reviewed. J. A. THOMAS. Mr. Miller stated it had been discovered in colonial times that a government could not be run without money. He is correct. Examine the history and ruins of every nation and we find the same necessity existing with every one. However, we find that financial centralization has been the cause of every national wreck; hence we will oiler one proposition for an answer. What our government wants is a circulation of money and an un- limited coinage, as commerce is unlimited, product of labor is un- limited; enterprise...
