Gov Knotts latest story is a
good one Ho says it is a mistake
about this subtreasury idea origi
nating with the Farmers Alliance
That it began way back before
Christ and that Joseph started
thnt little scheme with Pharaoh
when he advised him to build barns
and store up tho corn By this
subtreasury plan of Joseph he se
cured a corner on grain and
squeezed tho farmers so bad that
they sold nil their lands to tho gov
ernment for something to eat

The experiment of rain making
has so far proved tolerably success
ful Tho rain producers assisted
by Uncle Sam and other million
aires havo started for AVesternfiolds
in which to experiment They will
operato in WestTesas and in Kan
sas They purpose to produce rain
at their will by means of tremen
dous explosives This modo of
producing rhiu is based upon the
fact that almost every noted
battle in the civil AVar was follow
ed by heavy rains If this thing
is a success it is a groat invention

The Sub trcasnrj
One of tho moi t important ques
tions before tho people at tbis
time is finance Various plans
bavo boon propof od to put a suffi
cient amount of tbe circulating
medium in the lands oftbopeo
plo to meet tho dimands of trade
but up to this time no practicable
plan has been offered none witb
which the masses of the people
are satisfied yet ivith all its faults
the subtreasury plan stands in
the front rank statesmen and pol
iticians have scofled at and ridi
culod it butothey have coffered
nothing to take its place The
stand that I have taken on the
financial question and tho sub
treasury plan in particular is well
known hence it will bo seen that
I havo no motive in writing this
article other than a spirit of fair
ness to the end that justice may
bedonotothe men who advocate
tbe subtreasury plan Frontier
in his letter to the News calls it a
fraud and insinuates that its advo
cates are a secret x > litical faction
whose main object is to lift them
selves into place iud power this
whether intended or not is an in
6UU to tLo intelligence of the rank
and file to the Farmers Alliance
and Industrial Unions of America
lam personally acquainted with
some of tho learnal men who are
staunch advocates of the sub
treasury plan they aro men of
pure and unsullied character whose
main object is to free tbe people
from tho plutocratic power that
has haB been ruling them for the
past twentyfive years there may
be some men in th alliance whose
records will not bear tbe the light
they may be found in all organi
zations and although they maybe
stumbling blocks in tbo way of
reform yet they cannot impede its

The Alien Land law is still agi
tating the minds ol many Texans
has caused tho fin intial waves to
roll with maddening fury and has
wrecked tho Monrnonian aspira
tion of foreign spsculators The
principle involved is worthy of
commendation aid the man in
whose mind this tt ought ori
ted is the intellectual giant of
Texas Legislature but be like
dumb minister lacked the w
to cloak his thoughts There
reasonable objection agninst ior
oigners owning land and holding
it unimproved to increase in its
value by improvements made by
others laboring around ii But to
break this up through the means
offered by this present land law is
rather an inderect route to get at
tho main issue fnstead of the
foreigners suffering our own home
borrowers will more directly feel
tho effects Texas is not at pres
ent in tbe proper condition for
this law We wan t more invest
ments more enterprises more cap
ital etc in our stabs Everychan
nel of industry every branch of
trade every dollar invested popula
tion farming eta ctin be multiplied
by 10 and then wo will have an
idea of tho ordinary capacity of
Texas Therefore 10 years hence
would have been a reasonable time
for the enactment of this law
And whenever a plant blooms too
soon or out of season it is almost
sure to benipped in the bud
Therefore look out for tho oxtra
session of Legislatare

The country editor is the victim of
his own making By bis free and
easy reckless and obliging nature
he has placed himself in tho same
category of a tramp to bo fed by
such things as the public cant sell
Ho is presented with a dozen ripe
peaches and if he does not come
out with a column of thanksworth
at least 15 and puff tbe fruit farm
of the magnanimous giver in the
next issue bo is called an ungrate
ful cuss and gets no more peaches
Amerchant will take pity upon him
and present him with a ten cent
Mississppi silk handkerchief and if
he does not print a ten dollar write
up of said merchant and swear that
ho sells handkerchiefs with moro
blow in them than a cyclone ten to
one tho editor will caress his nasal
organ on his coat sleeve for months
to come A subscriber to the paper

department and will ask yon to take
notes of something in which he is
directly interested and writano1
and in

at the rich mans gate howling for

of fracturing the feelings of this
