Sept. 3,1891. SOUTHERN MÉftÓUfcY. W? X i Es. t¡ Extract from Livingston's Speeoh Before the Oeorg a State Alliance. Our enemies, meanwhile, are not idle. They are both alarmed and active. They are now well posted as to our purposes and chances of success. They have begun to organize against us in some places, and in nearly all in. stances they trust to their ingenu- ity and money to produce dissen- tion and conflict in our ranks. They believe that if they can em- broil and divide us, they can con- quer us. But they are miscalcu- lating the strength, the honor and the unswerving faith of the Alli- ance men. We can never be mis- lead and defeated by such tactics. But what must we do to contin- ue our success? 1. We must remain united and cultivate that fraternity of feeling and identity of interests which will knit us together into an individual body. 2. We must turn a deaf ear to the carpings and complaints of those who are on the out side of the Alliance, and to the factious growlin...

R. P. A. The Alliance in Texas is a unit on the Ocal a demands. Ta-ta bosses. The great split in the Texas Farmers Alliance is like the ne- gro's fish, "awfully swunk up." Will some one point out any arti- cle storable under the Alliance sub- treasury plan that is not stored now? It is now in order for the polit- ical bosses who bought and paid for the Alliance split to figure over their dividends. Raising wolf scalps, political and otherwise, seems to pay-better just now than raising cotton, and the farmers are in it. Which is cheaper, money at 1 per cent or 15 per cent per annum? Study the sub-treasury plan and find out how to get cheap money...

To make the producers of wealth absolutely free the 10 per cent mortgage must be exchanged for a 1 or 2 per cent mortgage, and in addition the flexible volume must be based on non-perishable farm products; the flexible volume will produce stability of prices, because no clique of politicians or finan- ciers can control the volume. THE PRIMAL CAUSE. The equitable distribution of the wealth of the world among the producers of it, should be the chief aim of all governments. If the law makers were not die tated to in matters of financial legislation this boon would soon be secured. As long as politicians or finan- ciers can control the volume of money the enslavement of product- ive labor will continue. Daily the people are regaled with vehement denunciation of the corners on cotton, oats, wheat, corn, wool, etc., by partisan polit- ical orators, but they are very...

A Brief Synopsis of a Medical Lecture by Dr. Hartman at the Surgical Hotel, Columbus, O. Malaria is a poison generated by de- caying vegetable matter, especially prevalent in the bot months of the late summer and early fall. IA sharp frost generally stops its ravages. It may be taken in tbe'food, drink or air A large dose of the malarial poison produces what is known as chills and fever, or fever and ague. The chills may occur «very day, every second day, or every third, or even fourth day. Large doses of quinine in many cases will break up the chills and restore the patient to health, but more then half of the cases quinine fails to cure, or even benefit. It is not only tl.e uncer- tainty in which quinine operates to cure chills and fever which makes this drug objectionable, but the injury which this drug is capable of doing to the nervous system and brain.

An important scheme, the object of which is to save the present crop of cot- ton from being sacrificed, has been for- mulated at Columbia, 8. C. and will at once be pushed throughout all cotton growing states. E. M.

It is proposed to bind these trust companies so firmly that the cot- ton placed in their trust can be consid- ered the same as if not in existence or dest...

These cédulas, or bank guaranteed mortgages, had from the outset been used for speculative purposes, were bought and sold on the stock exchange and gambled in, just as railroad and other corporation stocks and bonds are with us; and this use became more wild and reckless every year. And this is the system which the hired falsi- fiers of the plutocracy declare to to be identical with the Alliance plan. So much for the system which we have shown by incontentible evidence to bear no shadow of re- semblance to the proposed Alii ance plan, but which was in fact "modelled after that of the United States*7 with some additional fea tures, solely in the interest of for eign speculators and instituted at their request.

We must be united; must have sufferings, must strengthen the weak, encourage the wavering, be not cast down by de- feat, or unduly elated by victory. Let us be calm, temperate, conser- vative. It has been well said "when faith is lost, when honor dies, the man is dead." So it is with a cause; we must have faith in each other, a high sense of honor, else our cause is dead. We feel that we have truth and right on our side; we know that "Truth crushed to earth shall rise agalu, But error wounded, writhes with pain aad dies." Therefore, be it our duty to point out the errors of the present of government, wound them and they die. Now the great power gold will stand "Amazed, confused, to find hii power gone." It is impossible for us not to succeed if we are only vigilant, faithful and alert; our enemies cannot conquer; they will thwart and delay, but the final victory ...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Sept. 10,1891. The Great Conspiracy. Mr. Pierce upon his election to the Presidency honored Mr. Buch- anan with the mission to England. The plan then arose to purchase Cuba. It was feared that Spain might abolish slavery in Cuba and thus endanger the institution of slavery in our Southern States. To consider this question Mr. Buch anan, Messrs. John Y. Mayson and Pierre Soul our ministers to France and Spain met at Ostend, Belgium, October, 1854. The sub- stance of the result of their deliber- ations is contained in the following words: "After we shall have of- fered Spain a price for Cuba far be- yond its present value, and this shall have been refused, it will then be time to consider the ques- tion, does Cuba in the possession of Spain seriously endanger our inter- nal peace and the existence of our cherished Union? Should this ques- tion be answered in the affirmative, then by every law, human and di- vine, we shall be justified in wrest- ing it from Spain if w...

If we cannot realize these things it is because of our own ig norance; because an honest, in- dustrious, intelligent and enlight- ened people can never be enslaved, and yet the masses of the people are so blind, so dumb and so hare to understand, it does seem to me that an angel from heaven, with voice of seven thunders, it would be almost impossible to arouse within the people a suffi...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Sept 10,1891. THfe LECTUBE FIELD. On last night we went to the court house at Meridian, Tex., for the purpose of hearing a joint dis cussion of the sub-treasury by our Hon. Jo Abbott, M. C., and Harry Tracy. We were much disap- pointed, however, at finding that Col. Abbott was to have it all his own way, as Mr. Tracy did not come. On seeing the absence of Mr Tracy several left the room at the beginning of Col. Abbott's speech; however, about 100 re- mained. We are satisfied the ap- pointment was published in this way in order to get a good hearing for Col. Abbott, though we failed to see where he downed the sub- treasury. He first attacked the constitutionality of the measure, and said the government could not lend money, but was careful not to mention the cotton exposition and other like appropriations. He said the agents could not be elected and he hoped not to see the day when federal appointives would be placed down here among us to dic- tate concerning our p...

H r i ' it ! Sept it, 13d1. SOUTHERN MÉftÓUftY. Senator Coke at Coleman. We were somewhat disappointed in the senator's speech. He com- menced by a tirade upon the lead- ers of the Alliance, denouncing them as a set of impostors. He admitted that the people were sorely distressed, and unjustly and powerfully burdened; but advised them not to go to such small men as Stump Ashby and Macune for counsel, but to men of high posi- tion. Now, this quite lengthy pre- mise rather impressed our people that the senator was compromising his dignity in sneering at Ashby, Macnne and Tracy. What had this to do with the great questions agitating the public! Whether these men are great or small does not make the measure wise or un- wise. The people are not caring whether these men are great or small; what they want is relief from unjust oppression. The sen- ator next assumed that there were but two great political parties in this country. He claimed that the democratic party had increased our domain...

Hall's Journal of Agriculture was dis- missed as the official organ, and all the reform press of the state were declared official mediums of the order. Hall's sheet was not even allowed in the list. THE LAND PLANK. The land plank in the Alliance sub-treasury plan is intended to raise the volume of the circulating medium to $50 per capita. It is based on the fact that 9,000,000 American homes are now mort- gaged for about $3,000,000,000, upon which the people have agreed to pay interest at an average rate of 8 per cent per annum. This in- terest amounts to $240,000,000 an- nually. By reducing the interest to 2 per cent the people will save $180,000,000 annually, which in eighteen years will amount to $3,- 240,000,000, or sufficient to pay the entire indebtedness on these 9,000,000 homes. No one will pretend to assert that ...
