The poor man pays the 100, the rich man the 10. Should the people get mad when they are refused, when every county treasurer in the state is a depositor in some bank. Divest these banks of the legalized pro- tection of interest, and let them in- vest to realize, we should soon see how long it would be before they would have holes in their clothes. You can not answer argument by pointing at the holes in our clothes eat with your interest. Place yourself on the stump on fi- nance, and we will answer you from between the plow handles.

N. steal, and every other scheme pro- posed by the rich, that has for its object the robbing of the people. The infamy of the scheme only adds to the unanimity and solidity of its support by such newspa- pers. Many of these papers dally with the people, but never fail to stab their liberties to the heart every opportunity offered. The only big daily in the south that advocates the cause of the people is the Atlanta Constitution. All the rest, without an exception, are body and soul in the daily sen ice of those who pay them best. This seems hard language but it is the simple truth; nor is this all. The political bosses are also in the swim. Nearly every one of them is in unison with the daily and weekly press. They admit that the people ar#e being robbed of their substance and liberty, and that they must have speed...

Following is a copy of the resolutions in full: Resolutions Introduced by Alamo Farmers Alliance at the regular meet- ing of Bexar county Alliance, July 21, 1891: AVheras, certain members of the Al- liance, claiming to represent the Farm- ers Alliance of Texas, met in Fort Worth on July 10th and published to the people of Texas a series of false and malicious resolutions, reflecting upon the motives of the whole Alliance mem- bership, by attackining the officers of the order, who are endeavoring to car- ry out the will of the majority as ex- pressed in the Ocala resolutions. Whereas; there is a combined effort being made by office holders, politicians and ambitious Alliance men, to destroy the strength of the Alliance movement by a systematic attack upon measures that we deem for the best interest of the masses of the people.

I y JO- SOUTHERN MERCURY. July 30, 1891. REFORM PRE3S. The Alliance (Fla): For more than a year the partisan press has treated the farmers' measure with silent disdain, waving it joff in a breath that it was a new fangled theory, was wild and vis- ionary, was a shrewd device to catch votes and was not worthy of serious consideration. Just about now this crowd of "moss backs" are waking up from their delusion, they are beginning to realize that the people are clamoring for the sub-treasury plan and that it is to be the "livest issue" that has con- fronted the American people in 25 years. They have got to come before the people and say that they are content with present conditions and that they don't want any change in the financial affairs—that the present system suits them, or they have got to embrace the doctrine indicated in the sub-treasury plan. The people have had enough ridicule, bold assertion and wreckless denunciation of their measnre. They have asked time and time again fo...

The Economist occupies a cen- tral and commanding view of the whole field, and can see many of the maneuvers of the enemy that are not generally visible.

It was always thus, and always will be; the hope of the present is that the majority will be wise enough to hear. Recent events have done much to develope a clear understanding of the Alliance fight with the old political parties, and it should once for all be understood and known that the Alliance has no fight to make on either of the political par- ties; its membership is drawn from all. There is a fight on hand, and a bitter one, and it will be waged to the death. This fight is waged by...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. August 6,1891, FBB88 COMMENT. About every daily paper in the north and east and south and west has had its' say of the Texas alien land law. With a unanimity as rare as it is refreshing they de- nounce it as about the most idiotic bit of legislation to be found in the records of legislative idiocy. Out- side of a few weekly journals of this state and Hon. Ham Gossett, the alien land law is a stranger in a strange land.—San Antonio (Tex.) Express. Even so; but the plutocratic dai- lies and the patent sided weeklies do not hold the suffrage of Texas in their hands, nor voice its senti- ments. Eighty thousand fanners, voters, Alliance men, have de- clared it one of the best laws enacted by the 22nd legislature, and demand its retention without change or amendment. Hon. Ham Gossett is on the side of the masses, and Mill have to leave Texas ¿o find the "strange land" referred to. North, south, east and west all say all honor to the young statesman from the free state of...

August 6, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. m:- I A A The Alliance in Politics. J. B. COS.E. While the Farmers' Alliance is not distinctly democratic in any partisan sense, its purposes and principles are by no . means anti- democratic, and its every demand for legislation thus far , has been in strict line with true democratic principles. That is to say its ob- jects and methods are designed and believed to be in line With and cal- culated to promote the best inter- ests of the great masses of the American people. "TheyNare not all Israel that are of Israel," and we think the same of democracy, or the democratic pasrty of to-day. We do not be lieve the policy of some of its leaders to be in line with the,best interests of the great masses of the American people, therefore they are undemocratic. What has been said above with regard to the Alli- ance and the democratic party liólas good as to the republican party too.

No distinguished vis- itors from abroad graced the occa- sion with their presence, nor were all the organized counties repre- sented.
