He . in his seven-column article says that he would issue legal tender greenbacks to meet the deficiency. It will now be in order for some hard money fool to ask Mr. George, "What he will base hit money on ?" •** Arkansas City Dispatch : It will be a glorious day for the State Alliance of , Kansas when it gets rid of thatembodi ment of rascality and treachery, Frank McGrath. If he were a smooth scoun drel he might have accomplished great deal of harm, but as it is, he is just bright enough to retard progress by playing to-day to the enemies of the ' Alliance. The Vincents did not mis represent him very badly. He and Hall of Missouri had better clear up their own records before trying to smirch the characters of such men as Mr. Macune. * * * Arkansas Farmer : The Alliance de mands the free coinage of silver, and Mr. Cleveland, the head democrat, o...

August 13,1891. from (hat day to this under the providence of a kind heaven, la- bor proves a blessing, hides with- in its folds *nd under its forbidden aspect the highest blessings which can be conferred upon the human race. (Applause.) It is written in the best of books that if a man will not work, nei- ther shal he eat. So that from the creation to the time of Christs ap- pearance upon the earth, it has been the fundamental law under which society exists that each unit in society lives by his individual and personal labor. The farmer harrows the .ground, plants the seed in it and leaps the abundant harvest. He blends his industry with the fertility of the soil and with the beneficence of heaven in giving the early and the later rain, and the sunshine. The common carrier takes the cotton bloom and bears it from the barn of the plan- ter to the distant manufacturer, and in the transportion he stamps a new value upon the original pro- duct of the field, and lives b...

Men will gamble, and why should not the s late deal with the lottery ex- actly as it deals with the saloons. Gite it licence to do its work." But, sir, without dwelling too long upon the statement, let me diss- ipate the illusion by showing where the analogy fails. Saloons exist, but they exist un- der protest. They exist under not only the protest of the government j but under restraints such as the state will be able to throw around them. It stands by itself and sim ply answers the wishes and de- mands which are made upon it by those who desire the liquor which is sold them, but if you want the parallel to be .exact you must con- vert all the saloons in the country into one grand saloon syndicate (laughter and applause) and that syndicate must go to the legisla ture and demand a charter, and i...

The Mercu- ry trusts that it will be carefully read: Dallas, Texas, July 31, 1891. Mr. Ii. B. Upham, Henrietta, Tex. Dear Sir: Your very kind in- vitation by Mr. Risley, that I should address, your fellow citizens on August the 4th, has been re- ceived; 1 regret very much that my professional engagements are such, as will not permit of my ac- cepting. I am glad to see that the citizens of Texas are taking an active part in the affairs of State and Nation, which so vitally affect their interests.

August 13,18Ú1. SOUTHERN MERCURY. / ¿ THE ALIEN LAUD LAW. The columns of the partisan po- litical press, daily, weekly and monthly for more than a month have been replete with editorials, communications and interviews de- nouncing the alien land law. It is noticable that each one who de- nounces this law is either directly or indirectly financially interested in the usury growing out of loan- ing foreign money on Texas farms. For years the members of the Farmers Alliance and kindred or- ganizations, and the newspapers advocating financial reforms, have f been warning the people that Eng- land was rapidly accomplishing by diplomacy what she failed to do with the sword one hundred and fifteen years ago; i. e. enslave our people through taxation. The partisan press and political bosses have, with perfect unanim- ity, denied that such was the ten- dency, and that those who were pleading for reforms were cranks, and that their assertions had no foundation in fact. The enactment of the al...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. August 13, Í89Í. THE LECTURE FIELD. DR. c. W. MACUNE. at kurleson. Yesterday was a grand day for the Alliance at Burleson. Dr. C. W. Macune delivered the opening address. Many Alliance friends and myself had some doubts as to the feasibility and success of the isub-treasury plan, but when this grand man stood beforn us with his sledge hammer arguments, every doubt was dissipated. Would that not only every Alliance man but every voter of Texas could have heard his unanswerable ar- guments. No reasonable, fair and unprejudiced mind could fail to be convinced. t When we reflect how this good, grand man is misrepresented, abused and slandered by the par- tisan press, who is devoting his life to relieving the oppressed, down-trodden^condition of our peo- ple by the hands of Wall street, and their minions scattered over this broad land, our hearts grow sad. But they crucified the son of man who came to save a lost and ruined world. Friends of the Alliance of Texas, our...

Now is not this quotation in ex act harmony with the money plank of the national democratic platform aiid is it not a strict specie base theory? Reagan's treasury notes áre not to be legal tender notes, but, to iise his own language, they áre to have a "commercial value" like a bale of cotton, bushel of corn or wheat, and are to be re- deemable in coin at the will of the holder. His circulating medium is to be like any other article of com- merce and would have a com" modity value like coton, corn or wheat. I will now show that the Sena- ator's treasury notes of commer- cial value, are worse than the old wild cat, red dog money of ante bellum days. The proposition of the Senator was to issue $50 per capita of these notes "redeemable in coin at the pleasure of the hold- er." This would pu...

Its Increase Opposed* by Capitalistic Combines. The monopoly corrupted pre of the country lias a large contract on hand in the way of protecting the self con- ferred rights of aggressive capital and oppressive monopoly. For years this compound of justice has endeavored to control the various resources of the people by obtaining possession of the land and decreasing the money circula- tion of the country. During the past ten years every effort to increase the circulating medium has provoked a storm of bitter opposition from the combines, and through the efforts of the servile press and corrupt legislation they have succeeded in defeating every attempt of the people to relieve them- selves from the evils of an insufficient money circulation; but the people will not be put off", and they have renewed their demands again this year for free coinage of silver or some other method of relief.
