Oct 15, ISM. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 11 ' Í. People's Forum (Ohio): The repub- lican platform of 1880 declares the re- publican party "raised the value of our paper currency from 38 per cent to a par with gold." This means that the billionists exchanged 38 cents in gold for a dollar in greenbacks, which Sher- man said the government purposely discredited for that purpose, and then exchanged the non-interest bearing treasury notes guaranteed by the peo- ple, for a bond bearing interest at G per cent in gold, guaranteed by the same parties, at par, and then passed a law that the people should pay the bond- holder a dollar in gold for his 38 cents. Was this for the interest of the people or the bond holder, Mr. Sherman? Who paid the 72 cents? Did it strengthen the people's credit or the bondholder's? Please answer if this is "honest money" for the people. *** National Economist (Wash): Tom Jones and Sam Smith were neighbors. Sam was a banker and Tom was a farmer. Tom asked Sam to lend him $1...

14 80UTHERN MERCURY. Oct. 15,1891. The Blue and the Gray. W. B. HAYDEN, The feeling that accompanies the above expression is the instrument, or the principle instrument that is being used both north and south to keep down the laboring class- es. The next political campaign is drawing near, with good pros- pects of a mighty upheaval in offi- cial circles. The southern politi- cian is now busy sailing around among his constituency urging them to wear the party yoke, by his old game of crying out ' 'solid south, republican tariff robbery, etc.," but the boys are dull pupils this time. The northern political boss seems to be getting in the soup too. His fi^ry speeches about "rebels," andabuse of the negro in the south, are failing- to have the desired effect. The < olebrated statesman-out-of-a-job <>l Kansas, and the author of the new tariff law, of Ohio, seems to have felt the power of the people, notwith- standing their hatred of the south.

Oct 15,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 15 THE LECTURE FIELD. Abbott and Tracy at Spring Creek. Harry Tracy and Col. Jo Abbott met at Spring Creek, Bosque county. September 22, 1891, in joint debate on the sub-treasury plan. Tracy led off in a talk of an hour and a half, showing up how labor is being robbed of its just earnings and that the financial question was the great question to solve, and by which relief could be obtained; that the sub-treasury plan would give the relief so much needed. Col. Abbott followed in an hour's speech and made the usual asser- tions that the plan was unconstitu- tional and undemocratic. He agreed with Tracy as to the condi- tion of the people financially, but charged it all to the republican party, and said the democrats would make it all right when they got in power. He offered the tar- iff reform and free coinage of sil- ver as the remedy. He did not come up to the expectations of the people. Tracy followed for thirty min- utes and met every objection and a...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Oct 22,1891. ▲ Beeord of Bobbery. JOHN M. PAYNE. The first victory of the money power over the people since the time of Andrew Jackson was achieved when the National Bank act was passed in the closing year of the war. By that act the government turned over the nation to the mercies of a soulless corpora- tion, whose only interest was to obtain from the people every dol- lar that avarice, aided by power, en- abled them to extort. By that act the government re- pudiated its obligations to the peo- ple to furnish a circulating medi- um adequate to the commercial wants of the people, and delegated that duty to the bank corporations, with the law so framed as to put it in the power of the banks to fur- nish much or little currency as best subserved their own interest, there- by subordinating the welfare ot ev- ery man, woman and child to the grasping greed of a legalized money monopoly. By that act the banks held the prosperity of the whole people in their grasp. They c...

The people had been used to bearing burdens, and a few millions more would not be noticed perhaps. On March 18, 1869, an act was passed by congress, through the in- fluence of the banks and bondhold- ers, declaring that the bonds should be paid in coin, as was stipulated in the original bond. This "rob- ber" act was fiercely assailed by a few members, notably John Sher- man, who said: "Equity and jus- tice are both satisfied if we redeem those bonds in the same kind of money for which they were issued. O. P. Morton said: "We would do the government and the people of the United States a foul injus- tice if after we sold those bonds on an average of not more than 60 cents on the dollar, we should now propose to make a new contract for the benefit of the bondholders/' But e vén this flagrant outrage and robbery of the people did not sat- isfy ...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Oct. 22.1891. PASTY TBAP. We present upon this page a car- toon that the careful student will find an inexhaustible object lesson. The explanation is that the dem- ocratic and republican bosses are the jaws of the trap, they work up- en the same hinge, and are con- trolled by the same spring. That spring is party platforms, and they are chained hard and fast to Wall street. The bait is temptingly displayed and labeled. The victim, however, having been educated through dear bought experience that "All is not gold that glitters," refuses again to be victimized. PRESS COMMENT. The hogs have begun early to pack shucks into heaps. Either a cold winter or a special session oí the legislature is threatened.— Sherman (Tex ) Courier. They need to be packed early and often, or the supply will not equal the demand for soft places. I would not be surprised to see democrats and republicans voting together in 1892,—John G. Car- lisle.

Oct 22.1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 8 • \ \ i \ V NO MATERIAL DIFFERENCE. It is a lamented fact that the pro- ducers of the wealth in this coun- try, have for long years, delivered every surplus cent of their produc- tions to the usurer, who produces nothing, but who fattens on special privileges, granted by laws that these usurers have dictated, and that no recognized democratic or .republican party leader has, since the war, raised a hand to stop. In a very few instances, however, con- gressmen have introduced bills looking to the abridgment of this wholesale spoilation of the people. Their bills were promptly pigeon- holed, and the authors of the bi'ls, in every instance, promptly de- feated for re-election. These facts are so well known to our old time politicians, that they consider it suicidal to openly espouse the cause of the people. In every po- litical contest, where the people have been arrayed on one side, and the usurer on the other, the peo- ple have been defeated. The peo-...

6 SOUTHERN MCRCURY. Oct. 26,1891 Some Historical Faota About Money. M. W. HENRY. It behooves us to be ever on the alert, to guard our own liberty and that of our fellow citizens against the cunning schemes an devices of of thoue who conspire to establish trusts and monopolies at the exr pense of our liberties, and for their own selfish and mercenary pur- poses. Corporate power has en- vironed us with trusts and mon- opolies on almost all sides. It would appear at first sight that there was but little left to tempt their cupidity. We have a trust on the money with which we pay our debts, on the food which we eat, and the coal with which we cook it,on the coffee that we drink, and the sugar with which we sweeten it, the oil with which we light our houses, and the agricul- tural implements with which wo cultivate our farms; in fact it would be a difficult matter to find an arti- cle of prime necessity to the peo- ple, or a staple of commerce, that is not controlled by a trust.

Oct. 22,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. of Massachusetts that of the Amer- ican congress looks more like puerile imbecility than intelligent financiering. But perhaps Massa- chusetts did not have an organized money power to attend to the nomi- nation and election of their willing tools to office as we have had since the war. Massachusetts had pa- triots for legislators, but we have slaves to the money power, who are false to their constituents. Rhode Island began to issue sim- ilar bills in 1820; Connecticut and New York in 1809; Pennsylvania in 1783; Maryland in 1833; Dele- ware in 1839 and South Carolina in 1083. North Carolina issued a large amount of paper money based on taxes and made a legal tender. This remained for over 20 years at par with gold with no other basis but legal tender, and receivable for public dues. Does any sane man believe that North Carolina could in these early colonial days float a sounder and better legal tender currency than the United States^ could? Can it be ...

Oct. 22, 1891. southern mercury. 9 r DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT DEFINED. Any government that secures the greatest freedom to its citizens and ensures their prosperity should be perpetuated, any government that produces million- aires and paupers should be abol- ished. We hear it daily asserted that American politics has degenerated until no lead- ing partisan politician is actuated by patriotic motives, viewed from a moral standpoint. Every one ad- mits that expediency (which is only another name for duplicity) alone is the key to par isan suc- . cess. In fact, partisan politics has be- come so debauched that many very many of the best citizens of the re- public have retired from politics in disgust, thinking by such action to retain at least their own self re- spect. In so doing they make a fearful mistake, because by such action they surrender their per- sons, their property, their future and the fate of posterity into the hands of those whom they believe unfitted to do any good and a'...

Texas Farmer: The people—that part of them that don't want office— are for going forward in Texas on the true theory of government: "Special privileges to none; equal justice to all."

Oct. 22.1391. SOUTHERN MERCURY. II The Situation In Ohio. ALVA AO KB IN NAT. ECONOMIST. Inquirers concerning the political sit- uation in Ohio and the Alliance work are numerous. It will save time and may interest your readers to answer through The Economist. The Alliance is taking no part in the struggle fur- ther than to secure the defeat of Sena tot Sherman. It knows no political parties, is working for the supremacy of none, and as an organization has naught to do with the contest between Governor Campbell and Mr. McKinley. It holds that Mr. Sherman is an enemy of the interest of farmers, and that consis tency requires that all honest endeavor be used to retire him from the position in which he so faithfuly represents Wall street and misrepresents his con- stituents. We have brought influences to bear that have caused the repub licans in thr^e-fourths of the counties in which they expect to elect their can didates to the state legislature to choose men who are committed against ...

14 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Oct 22,1891. Bead Alliance Literature. You cannot be a good Alliance man so long as you refuse to pat- ronize papers advocating that cause, and read only the arguments ot en- emies of our organization. In spite of everything, your mind will jret warped and prejudiced, for the literature that a man reads, leaves an indelible impress upon him. Now, suppose that a minister of God, discarded the bible and read only the works of Voltaire or Tom Paine! Would you consider him a proper person in the pulpit? By no means, for he would only hear the arguments against the holy cause he is elected to fun Iter. It is this way with an A llianoe man. If he hears only the arguments de- rogatory to his order, he cannot be a loyal and consistent member. It is both unnatural and unreasonable. Of course we do not protest against our members reading oppo- sition papers, for they are intelli- gent, and there is no danger of their being changed—provided, however, that they also study o...
