Oct. 3,189K SOUTHERN MÉftÓUftV. >< j' Pt> greater than the tariff? Were we to abolish the tariff altogether capital, as it is now, could combine internationally and crush out all competition, as it has already done in many cases. It could, and does now, dictate both buying and selling prices. Look at our oil in- dustry, beef trade and many more, Our Galveston cracker and cordage factory are recent examples. I feel that a terrible state of affairs is approaching, and we need a greatjchange in our money matters. Does not Mr. Crain know that any measure which benefits the farmer will also benefit every other legitimate business man? ¡Does he not know that there is no class of persons, when specially benefited by law, that part of that benefit will flow to the farmer. This is because the farmer is the mudsill—the very backbone, of our great commonwealth. This shows that the sub-treasury plan is not class legislation in any obnoxious sense whatever. Anyone who favors conditions ...

southern mercury. § v< \ \ POBEIGN DOMINATION. The soveregn people by agree- ment, delegated to congress the sole power to coin money, regulate the value thereof, regulate com- merce with other nations and be- tween the states. That they did so to perpetuate the independence of tne United States and secure the freedom of its people from foreign domination no one will gain say. Under this authority it becomes the duty of congress to supply the people with a sufficient volume of money to do the business of the country on a cash basis, because in no other way can congress per- petuate the independence of the nation, or protect its people from alien domination. Reformers have been for years, proclaiming from the rostrum, through magazines and the press, thjit England was dictating the financial policy and banking system of the United States. For these utterances they have been denounced by those at the helm of state, by the partisan press and by partisan bosses and their healers, as ...

Oct. 8.1981. SOUTHERN MERCURY. II r, 1 I < ■ . 5 í El v if L '■ p: m Perils of the Hour. It behoves every thinking man to ponder well the issues that are upon us a people. The laboring man the farmer and the mechanic, should study the situation, and the means presented to avert the evils that seem ready to culminate in disaster to the whole country. What affects the laboring class affects all other classes. The merchant, the lawyer, the doctor and all other pro- fessions, are alike dependent upon this class. Especially is this true of the farming claps. They are the substrat- um of a nation's prosperity. How foolish is it then for those who have accumulated wealth, to try to kill the goose that laid for them the golden egg. It seems to be human nature; asa general rule, (of course there are ex- ceptions,) for those that increase in wealth to become callous towards the wants of those who produce for them their riches, and they become arrogant and domineering, and a desire seezes t...

The amendments were referred to the sub-Alliances for ratification ©r rejec- tion. STBro.

We are often spokerfof by outsid- ers as a floating mass, led blindly by our leaders, whoso object is purely political and partisan. I fear, brethren, that there are causes for this, upon the part of some of us. We should ever re- member that our order is based up- on a principle, the magnitude and power of which is unlimited; a principle as true as truth itself; as eternal as the God who is the au- thor of truth. ''Truth crushed to earth will rise again." What a glorious though^! Brethren, our order is not set upon a ioundation composed of averico, contention and communism, but " equal rights to all, and special privi- leges to none." How grand! Is it not sublime? This noble princi- ple underlies all successful republican governments, though ours at present has very little of it. We should study our constitution so as to be able to fully understand and appreciate the noble and powerful truths therein contained....

Comparing the labor and ex pense with the profits, there is no industrial pursuit open to the la- boring man, more remunerative than the management of sheep. Rocky or broken lands, not adaptec to tillage, may furnish excellent grazing for sheep. It is absolutely necessary /or the herder to follow his flock during the day, and to impound them se- curely at night, to prevent wolves or dogs from preying upon them. The kind of lands referred to is best abapted to sheep husband ry, and being unfit for almost any- thing else, are not so costly as the fertile level lands upon which cot- ton, corn and other cereals are grown. Should a farmer be so situated as not to posses ihese rocky, undulating lands, he can set other lands in Bermuda or Johnson grass, sow rye or barley, etc., on which the sheep may feed.

Crain, Member of Co", gress: I have received your letter, osten- sibly to the Farmer's Alliance, but really to the non-Alliance voters of this district. The line of argument pursued by you can not for a moment bewilder any Alliance man, for they are too well informed on the important issues of the day for that, but it may be that many who have not studied any about the matter may c nsider views coming from a congressman to be final. There is an expression current among congressmen that suits the case exactly; it is called "fixing fences."

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Oct 15,1891. being more specific at first. We didn't ask for your opinion of the Pickler bill or the Vance bill either. They are dead as Ingall's political prospects. I thought you knew it. All our congressmen except you, believe there is a great deficiency in our circulating medium, and the sub-treasury was devised to sup- ply this deficiency, and furnish a flexible volume of money to sup- ply a flexible demand. Neither the details of the Vance,[or Pickler bill cut any figure in the case. We ask congress to take this plan and construct thereupon a bill whose details should not be objectionable, or supply this deficiency in some other way, cheaper and not so "pa- ternalistic" (Jim I thank you for the word) as the national banks. You speak of the "cross injustice of this attempt at legislation for the benefit of the farmers of the country" You unwittingly hit the bull's eye right there. Great heavens!

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Oct 8, 1891. PRESS COMMENT. Alliance statesmen picture in glowing terms the era of prosperity just after the late war which they say was caused by such a vast vol urne of money being in circulation There is three dollars moreper- capita in circulation in 1891 than there was in 18G5. So the money racket is not the cause of all the woes that aillict the body politic. Baird (Tex.) Star. The Star's statistics are taken from Secretary Foster's Ohio 1891 campaign manifesto. Thus it seems that democratic and re- publican bosses get squarely uu- der the same blanket when they fight the Alliance. The statement however that we have three dollars more per capita in circulation in 1891 than in 18G6 is a'so wrong Let us see the facts as contained in the official reports: In 1866 we had $1,853,409,2161 with a popu lation of 35,819,281, or a per capita of $52. In 1891 we have a popu- lation of 64,000,000 people with a total volume of $1,500,000,000,ora per capita of 24.43, even a...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Oct. 1$, 1391 Democrats, Draw the Line! J. N. BARBER. The sub-treasury plan is causing so much uneasiness that a promi nent congressmen has suggested that when a democratic convention is called, and the people or dele- gates meet to take a vote, and if a majority endorse the sub-treasury then the minority «hould withdraw and hold a convention of their own. This is democracy with a ven- geance! Of course this is to pre- serve democracy in its purity (?) If such a test should be made, of course many persons who have af- filiated with the party for years, would be barred from doing bo any more. Such a test as the above would make considerable inroad in the ranks of the democratic party, but as the object is to purge, and purify the party, the remedy may be justified, though it be quite se- vere. Why make an endorsement of the sub-treasury plan the test of a man's democracy? The object be- ing to purify the party, we suggest if that test be made, others be made also,...

Oct IB. 1861. SOUTHERN MERCURY. THE FABMEB'8 BATTLE CBY. "Give Us the SubTreasury or Something Better." JOHN DAVIS, M. C. FROM KANSAS. Among the most unreasonable things that the enemies of the peo- ple are guilty of is their opposition to the Alliance sub-trea9ury pcheme. Whether that plan is the very best way of freeing the pro- ducers of wealth in this country from speculators and robbers and of getting more money afloat in the channels of business is not the main question at issues. But if the plan is not the best then why not? And who will show us a bet- ter? Col. Livingston of Georgia is perhaps the ablest champion of the plan. He makes a very broad and fair proposition at all times to his opponents: "Give us the sub- treasury plan or give us something better." That is fair. Surely farmers who have produced supplies for a supplies for a whole year, and some hundreds of millions in the form of cotton, grain, meats, etc., for export, should not be expected and compelled to dump ...

The southern and western demo- crats favor the unlimited coinage of silver; so do the pouthern and western republicans. The northern and eastern demo- crats (barring the Wall street mil- lionaires) are in favor of a protec- tive tariff on manufactured goods. The northern and eastern republi- cans are in favor of the same. The southern and western dem- ocrats favor tariff for revenue only, and so do the southern and western republicans. Any one who can read and think, will see that the southern and west- ern democrats are much nearer the southern and western republicans than they are to the northern and eastern democrats, hence it is but reasonable to conclnde that the south and the we3t will soon be practically united upon the tariff and silver issues, and the north and east will be united against t...
