When we assumed our official respon sibilities, our first effort was to resusci tate the order. In this effort we were confronted with great difficulties—a depleted treas- ury, The Southern Mercury insolvent, with all the expenses of the last State Alliance and some other debts unpaid, together with some dissensions in our ranks which culminated in the issuing of what is known as the Austin mani- festo, the establishment of an anti-Al- liance paper and the convening of a convention in opposition to the de- mands of the order (the effects of which I am proud to state passed like a mias ma tic fog before the rising sun), and the power and influence of mo...

The Southern Mer- cury is not the official organ of the State Aliance of Texas, and I do not so recognize it." Bro. J. D. Keith of Grimes county said: "I signed it because there seemed to be so much dissatisfaction with cer- tain members, I thought I might aid in bringing about harmony through the withdrawal of the legislative commit- tee. I have no charges to make. I know of no misconduct of any member of said committee. I think it no more than right to have a legislative commit- tee, because every other interest keeps one here; no one is kicking against that; then why should anyone oppose the Farmers State Alliance doing the same?" Bro. J. J. Davis from Falls county said: "I signed it hoping to produce unity. I had not then and have not now any charges to make against any member of the committee. Some breth- r...

W. T. Hanks offered the follow- ing addition: Be it further sesolved that the president of this Alliance instruct each county president to call a meeting at once to be held in each county at the county site, and all business men be invited to meet and co-operate with the Alliance in securing said extra sessison of the legislature. There being so much business on hand, it was voted that a night session be held, and so the body adjourned to meet at 8 p. m. evening session. The b...

There is not a person who is reasonably well informed who does not real- ize that the present system of dis- tribution of products is neither in the interest of the producer or con- sumer; that a few men are enabled to dictate terms to both; and, as a natural consequence appropriate the lion's share unto themselves.

Now, if all protection was removed from the other industries, that would make things equal; or, if some protection was extended to the farmer, that might have the same effect. Besides this bill does not, like the tariff, help the farm- er at the expense of others, but simply favors him without adding to the burdens of others. It is true that the objection has been made that it would require a large sum of money to make the loans under this bill, perhaps four hundred millions on all the five crops provided for in the bill, corn, cotton, wheat, oats and to- bacco, and that this would have to be raised by taxation. Nothing could be more erron- eous. One of the principle ob- jects of the bill is to put more money into circulation, and to take the money from the people by tax- ation and return it by loan would not increase the circulation one dollar. The bill provides for the issue of money to make the loan...

As I closed my last letter by saying that I was 1'opposed to any third party movement," and as it is known all over this land that I am a democrat, it is natural to conclude that my idea is to carry our Alliance-plans into successful operation through the democratic party. There is not, in my judgment, a principle or plan ad- vocated by the Alliance that is not in accord with modern democracy, (leaving the Hogg platform out.) Modern democracy is fully com- mitted to internal improvements by the general government. Bo- nuses to rail road companies, loans to national banks, and to brandy and whiskey dealers of of ninety cents on the gallon, until the article is sold, as well as to other entéVprises that need not be enumerated here, and it is just as constitutional and democratic for the government to loan money directly to a farmer or laborer, as to any other man or set of men if the security is good, ...

It is, in itself, neither food, cloth- ing, shelter nor bed. Edward Bellamy has taught us that society would be better off without money. Here is a question of most serious moment, viz: Is it right that there should be built up an artificial wealth imperishable, when real wealth is so evanescent? Man is perishable. All that is essential to him is perishable. The soif it- self, whence his subsistence is de- rived is soon exhausted of its fer- tility, if not renewed by the hand of toil. Flocks and herds are short lived. Grain, potatoes, melons, apples, etc.—all the products of his labor soon perish. The house that shelters ...

They ought not to submit to chains a single moment. The inalienable rights of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness must be maintained, 'peaceably if we can, forcibly if we mu3t.' " This contest for the natural rights of man must go on until there remain in America but one form of wealth —the wealth of products—"ring- streaked and speckled cattle," and the other essentials of human ex- istence, and these must not belong to Jacob alone, but to the produc- ers in common, until all artificial wealth shall have put an end to and only natural wealth remains, and until there be no laws left in the statute books but such as pro- tect natural rights. But what is artificial wealth? It is what exists in law and not in nature. The existence of artifcial wealth is an eating cancer that must be cut out. Remove this and human equal...

In all this broad field of our no ble endeavor as an order, there is no purpose grander in design, more pathetic in conception, or more beneficent in its possible results to the whole country and to posterity than the one, in which we declare to the world that henceforth, there shall be no sectional lines across Alliance territory. Failing in all else we may undertake as an or- ganization, if we shall accon.plish only a restoration of fraternity and unity, and obliterate the unatural estrangement which has unfortu- nately so long divided the people of this country, the Alliance will have won for itself immortal glory and honor. In the spirit of a broad and liberal patriotism, it recognizes but one flag and one country.

By the above title I refer only to the small element in the Farmers Alliance of Texas who are oppo- sing one of the demands of the Ocala platform known as the sub- treasury plan. The first objection to this plan was raised by politi- cians in congress against what has been denominated the "ware- house bill." It was declared by them to be unconstutional. This objection was soon met and si- lenced by appeal to history and to precedent. Next it was declared to be expensive and impracrical. Some Alliance men were caught by this plausable objection and fell in with the scheming politicians in opposing it. This objection, how- ever was soon answered so com- pletely that it became necessary to shift the ground of opposition again. The next cry was "it is a political question, and as the Alli- ance is not a political body, it was declared to be in...

Bro Perdue followed her with one of the grandest efforts of his life in defence of the Ocala demands and the sub-treasury, which was an eye-opener to all who heard him. Many stalwart democrats and re- publicans said it was an able ef- fort. Col. C. B. Kilgore followed him, but made no effort to answer any of the questions at issue, but put in all of his time in abusing the leaders of the Alliance, and the advocates of the sub-treasury.
