WHOLE 10. 491. Representative B. F. Philips, of Upshur County, on the ▲lien Land Law. In answer to a request made by the Fort Worth Gazette, Mr. Phil- ips thus expressed himself: Sir—I am in re( eipt of your fa- vor of August 37, 1891, asking my opinion of the alien land law. It is your right to ask and mine to answer also, to give a reason for the vote I cast for said law. When elected to the state legis- lature I wanted to learn what duty I should be called uponto perform, also to know what the duty was to was to be performed. I found they were simple tilings. The great statesman, W. E. Gladstone says that the business of a legislative body is just to register the will oí the people and make it law. We need eternal vigilance to see that the land of the people is guard- ed, and that by no law t...

But the giv- ing away in vast tracts to the favor- ites of congress the fertile lands which, on any just conception of our free institutions ought to be the freeholds of our people, ad- vancing the price of these lands beyond the reach of the laboring and landless men of the present day and early future is an evil that admits of no remedy except revo- lution. The amount of land that is being acquired by foreign cap- italists and lanlords is fairly amaz- ing. Ireland is today groaaing be- neath the yoke of oppression, and not many years will roll around before the American tenant will also look up into the scowling face of his master and acknowl- edge his obedience. The following are some of Amer- ica's foreign landlords and the amount of their holdings ex...

At this time about the same issue existed as now, except the negroes were slaves. But England selected for the division, Mason's and Dixon's line. So the few slaves she owned in Jamaica were freed, and the cry against the human slavery of the southern part of the United States was setup. Ireland and other provinces be- longing to her, although in far more abject slavery, by heavy taxation, was made partly by force, and partaly by arousiug their sym- pathy for the negro, to contribute large sums of money to stir up the enmity of the north against the south's "dealing in human flesh." The southern people then, as now, were free trade democrats; so was a considerable portion of the north- west, for the northwest's and south's interests was then as now, almost identically the same. As the south increased in wealth, so did the northwest; for as the sou...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Sept. 24,1891. PBB8S COMMENT. Germany can not float a 3-per ceiit bond at par, while the United States is extending 4^-per cent bonds at 2 per cent. A fact like this shows what the republican party has done tor this country.— Globe Democrat (Mo.) The United States exports $600, 000,000 worth of farm products annually, hence her security is much better than Prusia who ex- ports none. American farmers pay Europe $123,000,000 annually, in gold, in the way of interest. Foreigners want our breadstuff's and the cheapest way to get them is to collect interest which American blatherskites in congress permit. Yes, the republican party has made European money lenders the masters of America, and demo- cratic papers are helping them out by advocating the repeal of the alien land law. The plutocrats, foreign or domestic, are in it when it comes to robbing the American producer. Why don't they do it in France? Ten years ago a self-binding reaper cost $315, and now the price is o...

The government did not create any 'debt upon the na- tion by issuing and paying legal tender notes to soldiers or to any other persons who served the gov- ernment in any capacity. Congress made the service compulsory, and the receiving of legal tender notes also compulsory; therefore the re- ceiving of legal tenders for com- pulsory services cancelled all gov- ernment debt. Suppose a soldier should pur- chase a farm from a citizen, and pay in legal tender notes which he had received from the government for services in the war; has con gress any just or equitable power to permit the party who sold the farm to return said legal tender notes to the United States treasury for cancellation, and receive in re turn an interest bearing note pay able by said soldier who bought the farm? Congress has no constitutional power to call in legal tender notes except by taxation, and no equita- ble power to is...

6 SOUtHÉftN MERCURY. Sept. 24,1801. That Arkansas Banking Scheme— The Facts About It. F. G. M'RA VEN. A few days ago I heard a man criticising the Ocala platform. Among other things he said that Arkansas nearly ruined herself nearly 40 years ago by trying the experiment of lending money to farmers on real estate security. As I lived in Arkansas about 20 years ago I am able to correct him upon that point. The facts of the Arkansas mat- ter are these: About 1840 a lot of democratic dead beats got them- selves elected to the legislature, and concluded to get the state to set them up in banking; so they passed an act authorizing and char- tering a real estate bank. These men had no money to bank on, and had no credit to borrow it, so they made a law providing that the state issue $500,000 in bonds, bearing 8 per cent interest. These bonds were known as real estate bank bonds, and the act provided that they should be delivered to the agent of the bank, who was authorized to pledge them a...

And yet, so far have his followers drifted in these 1900 years that with a few honorable exceptions they are found, not in the cots anc workshops of the poor, but in pal aces amid unearned luxuries, in gorgeous temples at the counters of the money changers, and in the contriving caucusses, where schemes are laid to maintain the rich by the labor of the poor. For 1800 hundred years Chris- tians had no opportunity peaceably to maintain their liberties. But 100 years ago popular government was established in America under Christian auspices, and human rights clearly defined in harmony with the dictates of right, reason and the principles of Christ life, implying its complete develop ment or education, liberty, the un fettered exercise of life and the pursuit of happiness. The decla- ration of independence says that all men are endowed by their Cre- ator with these inalienable rights. These truths are self evident, and the principles of Christ....

s«pi. ¡4, mi. SOUTHERN MEftCUftY. ' § .\ •U- i> •/' I }'fl LEGALIZED BOBBEBY. Of all the people that fatten upon the earnings of others and through cold deliberate scheeming grab every thing in sight, and with unrelenting tenaci- ty ask for more, the national bankers of this year of grace take the cake. The Twin City national bank of Brighton, Minn., ha? re- cently brought suit against the United States to recover the annu- al tax of one per cent, levied upon it under the national banking act. The allegations set forth in the plaintiffs petition are that under the constitution all bills propos- ing to raise a revenue must origin- ate in the house of representatives. That this part of the law originated in the senate, hence it is un- constitutional, therefore they ask that the money paid under it to the government and the interest there- on together with costs of suit, etc., be refunded to the bank. It is understood by all familiar with the situation, that the nation- al wing of t...

To show that they have power, read the editorials of such papers as the New York Tribune, World, Mail and Express, or Herald. In 1878 the Tribune said editorially, in speaking of the situation: "The machinery is now furnished by which in any emergency the financial corporations of the east can act to- gether on a single day's notice, with such power that no act of congress can overcome or resist their decision." "This is tieason to every principle of free government, but who could convict them.

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Sept. 24,1891. ! Knooked Out of the Ranks—U. 8. Hall's Paper. And a great deal that it did not ask A paper which was sat down npon knocked down and its prostrate form trampled upon and its pretty clothes spoiled as was the Journal of Agricult- ure at Pertle Springs, which then has the effrontery and gall to come out and say that "it has been indorsed and given all it asked for," is not fit to be recognized by decent, self-respecting people. Let's see what the Journal got: It asked to be re-elected state organ, and had a standing ad for weeks recounting its virtues and its abilities. At the state meeting it was knocked clear out of the ring, and it is not in the class of papers which will now pub- lish all official information. In the second place it boomed anti-sub-treas- ury men for officers of the order, headed by N. J. Wallard. Not one of the Jour- nal outfit was selected. The Journal insisted that an effort would be made, if the sub-treasury men were in the maj...
