Nov. 19,1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 11 Sioux City (la.) Liberty Bell: Every- body, regardless of politics, should get together at the school house, and dis- cuss, in a friendly, earnest and honest way, the following important questions: 1. Is there money enough in circula- tion? 2. How shall the volume of money be increased? 3. Should unearned railroad land grants be reclaimed? 4. Should railroads and telegraphs be under government management? 5. Should the president, vice presi- dent, and United States senators, be elected by direct vote of the people? 6. Do the farmers pay their share of the taxes? 7. Do the railroads pay their share of the taxes. 8. How can the law taxing notes and mortgages be enforced. 9. Should the Australian ballot law be passed? 10. In the struggle between labor and capital, what should labor demand? Push the work of education.

Nov. 19, 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 13 Literary Notes. Albert Bushnell Hart, of Harvard University, contributes an article to the New England Magazine for November in which he discusses the cause of the defeat of the Confederacy, in the war. A number of novel arguments are pre- sented in his review of the situation, both before the shot of Fort Sumpter, and after Lee's surrender. It is an arti- cle which is bound to interest both Northern and Southern readers, and is strictly judicial and impartial. One of the novels to appear in 1892, is a story of New York life, by the au- thor of "The Anglomaniacs," and the magazine will contain a great deal about the metropolis during the year— among other things a series of illus- trated articles on "The Jews in New York." In November, is an illustrated description of "The Players's Club,' founded by Edwin Booth, and one of the features of the splendidly illus- trated Christmas (December) number, is an article on "The Bowery." To get The Century s...

14 80UTHERN MERCURY. Nov. 19,1891. The Two Alliance Meetings. The Iowa Liberty Bell, organ of ibe Farmers Alliance of tbe 11th district has the following to say concerning the two Alliance meet- ings recently held in the city of Des Moines: "Last week was notable for two important gathering which met in the city of Des Moines. Both meetings were composed wholly of representative farmers of the state, called together by the annual meetings of two powerful farmers organizanions,' the Iowa branches of the N. F. A and of the N. F. A. & I. U. The N. F. A. was represented by more than two hundred dele- gates. The I. U. although less than a year old as a state organiza- tion, allowing delegates from coun- ty organizations only, was abl# to show a regresentation of fifty dele- gates. Both orders had their meet- ings henored by the presence of official heads of their respective national organizations. The N. F. A. had at its meeting the Hon. John H. Powers, ol Nebraska. The j.

Nor. 19.1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 15 r The Trap Set. ISAAC B. REAMS. In a recent issue of the Dallas News, I find an article written by "Texan," on the alien land law. He gives our legislature fits for passing such a law, and affirms that English capital is afraid of Texas, hence is not likely to fur- nish us money, owing to the pass- age of said law. Being a Texan, I deem it proper to ask a few questions: Where does England and other countries get so much money, while we have so little, and are compelled, appar- ently, to borrow? Why are they so anxious to loan it in the United States! Have all other govern- ments the right to coin money, ex- cept the United States? Have they coined more than they can use, hence seek to place their surplus in this country? I am of the opin- ion thar congress has the right to oin money, regulate its value and volume. If I am correct, why should our government borrow? Such a course can only be in the interest of the lender. It occurs to me, that if mor...

The National Bankers'Association M. W. HENRY. The national banks in each com- munity, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, form the concentratec money power of the United States. Not satisfied with the general power of money incorporated into inten sified strength, they have formed a kind of leviathan corporation, whose constituent elements are al- ready made up in unified powers —a corporation of corporations— which they term the Bankers' As- sociation. The machinery covers the whole empire of financial action. The wheels roll through every state and territory. From centre to circum- ference it rules the whole. Its aim is universal control. It means 3633 banks, wielding the capital of hundreds of thousands of capital- ists, and the deposits of over a mil- lion of business men, aggregating ...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. A ov. 26.1891. ▲ Bank Conspiracy. The following communication from the Plow and Hammer, of Tiffin, Ohio, is over the signature of Hugo Preyer, a well-known and influential citizen of that state: The bankers of the United States formed their first public or- ganization at Washington, January 11, 1802. The delegates present were Messrs. Coe, of the Mer- chants' Bank, New York; Martin, the Ocean Bank, New York; Gal- latin of the National Bank, New York; Bates, Bank of Commerce, Boston; Wallace, Merchants Bank, Boston; Rogers, Tradesmen's Bank, Philadelphia; Mercer, Far- mer's Bank, Philadelphia, and Patterson, Western Bank, Phila- phia. This was the committee ap- pointed by the bankers association to see the finance committee of the house and senate and shape the fi- nancial legislation of the country. When the first meeting of these bankers took place, we are unable to ascertain, but this is the first open appearance in public. They met at the date above stated/ Jan-...

On A's deposit of $1000 the banks have loaned $2,830.84, and have $943.60 remaining in cash on hand. Upon this tottering foundation rests the entire business of the country. The deposit account is as follows: A $1,000 00 C 750 00 E 562 50 G 421 87 1 316 40 K 237 30 M 177 97 O 133 42 Q 100 06 S 75 04 U 56 28 Total $3,830 84 Here is found certificates of de- posit outstanding amounting to the above sum, and only $943.60 to meet them. No wonder the bank- ers say that confidence is needed more than money. Senator Colamer, of Vermont, in discussing the bank act said: "To induce the people to take $300,000,000 of bonds on interest to set up these banks, put out their circulation as a'national currency,' and we guarantee its payment! Wherein is that any better than the greenback? I will ask gentle- men to put that question to them- selves. Is it any better? What...

SOUTHERN MERCURY. Nov. 26, 1891. PBESS COMMENTS. The Tyler milkmaids seem to have held the International cow a little too long. She has been milked to the danger line.—Waco Day. The fact is, the poor old thing has gone dry. The Farmers Alliance has said that it is not a political party or- ganization and it sticks to that. Chairman Finley may com* r nd but the farmers refuse to go T. They know their rights.—Galves- ton News. That's it exactly. The wage-workers' chances for a competency is growing beauti- fully less every year under the ma- ternal wing of the democratic or republican form of government— St. Louis Monitor. Congressman Kilgore says times are prosperous, notwithstanding. The treasury department seems at a loss so tell what articles are antiquities, and therefore to be ad- mitted into the country free of duty. If the treasury wants to find out what antiquities are, it has only to take a look around the depart- ments at Washington, and inspect pome of the old office holde...

Hov. 26. 1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. II ANOTHER MISREPRESENTA- TION NAILED. The sub-treasuryites use the bonded warehouse for storing li- quor as a parallel to their scheme; but no such similarity exists. Bonded warehouses for the storage of goods under the internal revenue laws are built and owned by pri- vate parties. The government does not advance a cent of money on whiskey in bonded warehouses. It simply permits the owner of the whiskey to postpone payment of the tax of 00 cents a gallon for the term of two years, at the expiration of which time the tax must be paid.—Marlin Ball. The sub treasury orators who know any thing at all know this just as well as anybody else, but it does not suit their purpose to enlighten to this extent. A cam- paign of education it not what they are engaged in.—Houston Post. The proverbial ignorance of the Marlin Ball concerning the laws of this country will be readily receiv- ed as his excuse for indulgining in such utterances. With the Hous- ton Post,...

6 SOUTHERN MERCURY. Nov. 26,1891 Six Honest Questions. In the issue of October 3, of the Chicago Farm, Field and Ranche, L. Harding opposes gov- ernment loans on land. lie is very free to run down this, that and the other financial plan. He states his opposition to them, but he does not offer anything better. He says, for instance, that it is unconstitu- tional for the government to loan money on land. ' I suppose he thinks it is constitutional for the government to loan money on bonds. He says government land loans would be class legislation. -What does he think of government bond loans to the national bankers? Perhaps he is op- posed to all government loans, either on land or bonds, or any- thing else. If he is opposed to all government loans, I would ask him how he expects to supply the nation with money? As the nation increases each year in population and wealth, it needs an increase of money. An increase of commerce requires an increase of money with which to cirry it on. He su...

Nov. 26,18é). SOUTHERN MERCURY. The Situation. "Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad," and it would seem, from a careful perusal of the partisan press of the country, especially the dailies, that their an^er, or the ire of the average cor- porationist, manipulator and legal robber, whom the partisan press serve, are hostile in the extreme towards the Farmers Alliance. The old methods and tactics, that have been employed to destroy every movement looking to a reformation, in the past, are employed, and are being put into execution as rapidly as the circumstances will admit, and as the bosses order. One of the favorite methods is to misrep- resent everything possible. An- other is to traduce and malign the character of those who have been placed on guard at the front. An- other is never to publish anything favorable to the organization under any circumstances, and to distort every fact. Another is to declare that it is a political party.

Ho*. 26.1891. SOUTHERN MERCURY. 9 THE INDIANAPOLIS MEETING The bosses and the hireling press of the country are waiting in breath- less anxiety for the official pro- ceedings of the convention of Al- liance men, just adjourned at In- dianapolis. Like the boy who whistled while going through a grave yard, to keep up courage, they have been keeping the wires hot with sensational dispatches about the actions of the .body. There is not one scintilla of truth in any ot their utterances relative to what has been done at Indian- apolis, but the suspense must be mitigated by some means, and nothing suits their ends so well as manufactured reports of the pro- ceedings in detail. Alliancemen will not be mislead by the idiotic reports that were sent out. In due time the brotherhoou will be fully informed in detail. There never was a more harmonious meeting of the National Alliance. The scabs were on hand with all the force they could muster, but "they wern't in it." They "fumed, flourished and...
