WHOLE NO. 486. K Texas, Mother of the Alliance. It is said that the Farmers Al- liance—that new savior of modern society—was born in Texas. Did you ever hear that woder- fully inspired music, "The Orato- rio of the Messiah?" Nowhere has a story been better told in music than in the early part of this or- atorio. First there comes a great trum- peting; tidings of great joy are are brought by Angels to the mother of John the Baptist, and "all the hill country of Judea" re- joioes in the promised deliverance. John, the forerunner, is born, who disdaining the conventionalities, waxed strong for his work by re- maining in the desert "until the time of his showing." You can imagine you hear him as he strode around in his girdle of camel's hair, practicing his lungs for his future preaching. His diet of ...

Southern mercury. August 20,1891. labored argument to prove that that the tariff, and not our indus- trial system, is the cause of de- pression in the south. He said that all the immense wealth produced in the south goes into the pockets of the manufac- turers in the north, and assigns as a reason for it, the high protective tariff. It is true that a very large per centage of our wealth goes to the north and east. Why? Be- cause the money kings of Wall street, controlling the volume of money, and using debt created by insufficiency of currency, as a lever force farm produce into market. To put produce on the market is to put it in the hands of Wall street, because there is not a produce speculator in this country who is not directly dependent upon this money center. Indeed the manu- facturers themselves are forced to submit to the exactions of the mcney monger. Why does not the gentleman say something against Wall street? Are their relations too close to al- low it? His frantic eff ...

August id, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. m i And there fell that day, 3,000 men. Thus endeth the scripture quo- tation concerning the golden idol. Right here, let Senator John James Ingalls begin to talk, and wnile he speaks as no Republican is want to to speak, let the people bow their heads and listen. "No people in a great emergen- cy ever found a faithful ally in gold. It is the most cowardly and treacherous of all metals. It makes no treaty it does not break. It has no friend it does not sooner or lat- er betray. Armies and navies are not maintained by gold. In times of panic and calamity, shipwreck and disaster, it becomes the agent and minister of ruin. No nation ever fought a gre¿t war by the aid of gold. On the contrary, in the crisis of the greatest peril it be- comes an enemy, more potent than the foe in the field; but when the battle is won and peace has been secured, gold reappears and claims the fruits of victory. In our civil war it is doubtful if the gold of New York and L...

William to be much of an Alliance man, except last year when he tried to ride over M. M. Crain in the primaries astride the ne"k of the Alliance. We did not think it "for the good o^ the order" to force one of our ablest men to discuss with a pri- vate citizen. This this not the first time we have seen Private Billie bob up; he bobbed up at our County Alliance in July, wanting to discuss. Now, is Private Billie wanting a discussion, or does he follow us up for the loaves and fishes? If he does want a discussion we will furnish a Johnson county man who will ac- commodate him. As for that plat- form that -'was being erected," that was done when we saw that the crowd would be greater than our hall could accommodate, and not because private billie wanted to speak. J. H.

Did not Christ enter into the very midst of the usurers and overthrow their tables and drive them out and class them as thieves? Do the clergy do that now? Do they act and talk that way now? The very book they preach from says in thundering tones, if you have not the spirit (disposition) ot Christ you are none of his. Have they this spirit? If so, God requires that men shall show their faith by their works. "Show me thy faith without thy works," says the apos- tle James, "and I will show the the my faith by my works". This is the kind of faith that God re- quires of men, and this is the kind of faith that ministers should show, or be hurled from the ministry as enemies to God and a stumbling block in th way of sinners. God never calls a coward to preach. Hot sunshine and boodle does this kind oí ca...

August 20,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. s I Alien Land Law. T. MC. RAE. The violence of the alien-law agitation tends to obscure the rea- sonableness of the legislation. Our nationality is unique, unex- ampled in many ways. We are a young people, yet the strongest among civilized nations; we are self sufficient—at least more near- ly so than any other nation on earth. Our citizenshipis the most valuable that is open to the immi- grants of the world—and the cheap- est. The strangest fact with which we have to contend, is compara- tively new in the history of poli- tics, and its management is some- thing of a novelty to statesman- ship. Never before did the money center of Christendom have so great a power as within the pres- ent century, and every day its in- fluence is growing greater. Legislation is made, modified or repealed, according to the demands of the money market—the king on the golden throne is an absolute monarch—and that money market is in London. We have become, speaking of t...

It is more remarkable, while just, and righteous, and feasible, and sound, than most of the ideas of what is called Christian socialism. It is the first actual battering ram that ever turned its iron head against the awful front of the citadel of greed. The sub-treasury says thiB, practic- ally: Whisky-distillers, bankers, exposi- tions, railroads, etc., etc., are protected and fostered by the government—and yet they were all able to protect them- selves, and were actually the luxuries of the age. The farm is the necessity of the age, the primary element of civilization, the foundation of prosperity, the one thing without which national organism can- not exist— the sui generis, the original- born, the within-itself source of com- merce—has been left a prey to profes- sional pirates.

And by the wholesale use of the franchise, you need never fear lessening the powers that be; besides it is in line with that dire necessity—a government econom- ically administered. With the people educated in true political economy, it would be easy for one man to adminis- ter and express the will of the majority when the people governed. Now to the point: Incorporate the district and national Alliance into the constitution, and let the sub-Alliances elect delegates to the county, as they now do; the county one delegate to the district pnd the district, say three, to the state, and the state to the national body. By se- lecting your best men, as far as possi- ble, and instructing them, there need be little dread of the consequences.

Under the above heading I wish to present a few thoughvs for the careful consideration of your many readers, or at least some of them. The third party question is in the mouths of every body, and the leaders of both the old parties understand the matter full well—too well. But some of our good, honest, hard working old farmers do not understand it half well enough, and every effort will be made by the old party leaders that brain and money can devise or concoct, to keep them from knowing anything more about their political duty than they do now. x>owmy brethren, mark one fact, which is this: Whenever a man speaks or writes in holy strains in regard to the nobleness and purity of our order, the Farmers Alliance, and in the next breath with uplifted hands of holy hor- ror, expresses a fear that it is going into and will become contaminated with politics, you may just spot that man as an enemy, a trai...
