Nov. 12,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 0 ▲ MISTAKEN IDEA. Partisan political demagogues seem to have convinced a majority of our national and other bankers that organized labor is opposed to any kind of a banking system. Nothing could be further from the truth. Labor organizations are opposed to banks of issue. They are in favor of the government is- suing all money, in volume suffi- cient to do the business of the country, and, that it should be put in circulation at the least possible expense. All money is issued by the authority of the people and should be issued for their benefit. Alliance men oppose granting power to banks to issue money, because it gives them the power to control the volume, and to dictate the rate of in- terest, the value of all labor and its products, as well as the so- cial and political interests of the people. The people know that a corner, on money is a corner on all other corners combined, and that the only escape from such danger- ous power is to destroy the ...

They are scattered all over the country, and accurately reflect the convictions, and changing sentiment of millions of wealth creators. The absolute verity of this statement cannot successfully be controverted. It is noticeable, that within the past few months, these journals have takon on a sterner and more radical tone. Their editorials show an intense feeling of wrong, they are hot with wrath, at certain evil conditions, and the men and classes which stand for them. They are not in doubt as to their oppressors, but name them with terrible frankness. These newspapers of the people, bris- tle with communications of sinister omen.

14 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Nov. 12,1891. One of the Causes. C. H. CLEVELAND. "Metbinks I see in my mind a noble and a puissant nation rous- ing herself like a strong man after sleep, and shaking her invincible locks; methinks I see her as an eagle mewing her mighty youth, and kindling ber undazzle eyes at the full mid-day beam."—Milton. Were not these words of the great blind poet, prophecy? Do you not feel the vibration of the American strong man's locks as he rouses himself from his quar- ter of a century sleep, and begins to shake off his lethargy? Can you not hear the flutter of the wings of the American eagle in the air, as she hovers over her brood, restless, watchful, threaten- ing? In our intellectual efforts to fathom the cause and apply the remedy for this state of things there is one primary cause which we have overlooked, or rather evaded. This evasion is the result of indifference on the part of the farmers and other laborers, and of policy on the part of plutocrats and polit...

Nov. 12,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 15 Wall Street vs. the People. When Cleveland last winter went out of his way to write his pronounced disapproval of the free coinage of silver, the old lead- ers of the democratic party were dumfounded, and for a long while he was laid upon the shelf as a presidential possibility; latterly, however, he is forging to the front with those old time leaders at his back, but the people still opposed to him. With an increasing evil condition in financial affairs, now in truth, almost at the climax of a universal practical bankrupty, it is difficult for an outsider to say what the influence is in bringing about such a change. A Wall street fa- tuity is the most generous ascrip- tion outsid of bad motives—which we do not make. His one issue idea of tariff reform, with his anti- silver doctrine, we have already tried with Cleveland, and were ig- nominiously defeated, and can our old democratic leaders karn noth- ing from that disastrous exper-( ience? It is t...

WHOLE 10. 499. Most Important and Least Under- stood. The following is the substance of an interview by the Ilaleigh Chronicle with Dr. R. J. Gatling, of North Carolina, the inventor of the celebrated Gatling guns. It shows that the doctor knows some- thing about finance, as well as in- vention. His reflections on the silver question are worthy of care- ful perusal: "There is no question so import- ant, and none so little understood as the money question. The vol- ume of money should increase as population and commerce increase. Silver is as important as gold. It is used by more than half the peo- ple of the world exclusively, and the other nations use both gold and silver, as a circulating med- ium. There is not enough gold in the worl produced to make all the coin money required. Indeed, the worl...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. A ov. 19,1891. zation of silver and its use in India in the way stated, has resulted in a loss to the wheat raisers of the United States, in sixty-seven years, to the amount of probably five bil- lion dollars, and to the cotton rais- ers of the South of perhaps one I illion dollars. I regard it absolutely necessary to have as much money per capita as any nation we trade with. France has between $.">0 and $60 dollars per capita. It would be a be a great blessing to the people of this country if they had an equal amount per capita, but we have in the United States less than $20 per capita. By having a full vol- ume of money in use every man in this country can be kept employed who desires employment. At all periods of the world's history, where coin money was plentiful there has been less misery and more prosperity than at any other time." Some Interesting Letters. Campville, Tioga County, N.

SOUTHERN MERCURY. ,/ A l : \ ern states, so long as controlled by the ante bellum oligarchy, who have heretofore relegated to the rear the plain, working farmer, as so much "poor, white trash," un- deserving of official position, and fit only to associate with the ne- groes. For these, among other reasons, it seemed the duty of the Federal government, under the letter and spirit of the constitution, framed to ensure its perpetuity, to see that every man shall be permitted, with- out fear or molestation, to cast his vote and have it honestly counted. But whenever your Georgia State Alliance—a secret order— acting in some degree under my counsel, and the other like Alli- ances of the South, shall convey to me official information of their de- sire, with respect to the passage of the proposed Federal election act, their will, thus expressed, shall be law with me.

The power to tax, includes the power to confis- cate, therefore, every home should be exempt from taxation.—Texas Farm and Ranche.

Tt is a "dollar" for all that, and discharges or pays a "dollar" of debt. Law makes money, not metal. No more correct definition could be given of a "partisan" and "pol- itician" than this: A partisan is one who studies the science of get- ting office. A politician is one who studies the science of govern- ment. But a very small per cent of so- called politicians know anything of the science of government, and most of them are too partisan to learn. "Do you know," said President Polk at Richmond, Va....

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Nov. 19,1891 Congressman Crain on the Bun. W. C. DIXON, M. I). The Alliance of Texas has been vigorously assaulted by every po- litical boss in in the state. First, Gibbs and Clark fired off their pop guns. Then Coke, Culberson and others began shelling the woods, but they seem to be armed with inferior weapons, and appear to to make no impression on the Al- liance fortifications. On the other hand Tracy and Coleman, and others, are responding with long range, breech loading rifles and Gatling guns. Gen. Jones is quietly but firmly standing by his a la mortar and never fails to explode his shells in the midst of the bosses. It seems that every a la hayseed carries a political Gatling gun in in his hip pocket, and is ready to receive and make a charge at a moment's warning. Congressman Crane has fired off his little howitzer on Col Laughter and the 7th district, and thinks it very Impertinent in Col. Laughter, Mr. Meitzin and others, to attack the position of the ...

Nov. 19,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. d "THE PA88ING OF THE ALLI- ANCE." If the writer of the article with the above heading in the St. Louis Globe-Democrat of Nov. 10, was as loyal to the truth as he is to partisan prejudice and class hatred, he would stand at par with honest men. But, alas! while the man may not approve of what he writes, he is nevertheless a slave —the slave of a corporation that knows no interest save the will of Lombard street. London, and Wall street, New York—the money power. If this misrepresentation is to forever win, if the masses are to confide in what appears in the great daily papers of this country as being true, in the fu- ture as in the past, there is but little hope for reform. In the article above referred to the sartling statement is made that "the Farmers Alliance is placed away in the graveyard of political organizations." There could be no object in such a state- ment other than to mislead—to en- gender prejudice against the or- ganization. No one kn...
