Nearly all of the prominent
Alliance leaders started out rep
resenting themselves to be fi
nancial bankrupts, and pleaded
to put them in position where
they could use their ability to
alleviate the oppressed condition
)f the people. Have they done
this? Or have they used their
positions to add more corpora
tions, and make the oppression
more burdensome? We mention
this merely to show, there is
good ground for the people to
be suspicious, when the effort is
made to organize the farmers
they have been zo often deceived.
With the organization now
being attempted, if the right
start is made, there is no reason
to be deceived; go to work with
an intelligent determination,
without any mysteries or signs,
r dues, simply organize to act
upon business principles, do not
make any unjust demands, only
ask for a fair compensation for
that which you have a right to
ask-"the laborer is worthy of
his hire," manage your institu
tion with the same intelligence
that bankers and merchants car
rv theirs on successfully-it is
;imple, and all that is necessary.
If your local mill insists upon

Freight on your meal, send your
)rder to the other mill, and pay
he freight to the railroad which
2as earned the freight; when
vour local mill realizes that you
lo not intend to submit to the
mposition, it will quickly cut off
that freight which it never was
entitled to, but as long as you
submit to the injustice, it will
3ontinue adding to its coffers
his ill-gotten gain, that in our
>pinion is nothing short of rob
bery, and when we say "rob
bery" we mean that it shall be
3onstrued as all the word can
mply, because, when an insti
bution demands of the local con
umer at the mill door, more
tha it demands from the con
umer abroad "in order to meet
yompetition," it is nothing short
)f robbing those at home, from
shom it seeks to secure the raw
naterial. This system can and
hall be broken up.
We have been watching the
situation closely, and we feel
3ompetent to advise, hence, we

Farmers are no longer indifferent
o the imposition imposed upon
them, an element appeared upon
he scene, ostensibly to encour
ge organization, but this ele
ient would relegate the oil mill
brut and make paramount the
|Moacco trust. There is a tobacco
rust, and its fangs are driven
leep into the energies of the peo
ale; it is bait one of several of
she most damnable institutions
ver tolerated in a free country,
mnd would to God it could be
rushed at once, but every reflec
ing man must know it is impos
ible to crush the tobacco trust
his year; the crop is on, the peo
ple cannot use it, they must sell,
and therefore the tobacco trust,
so far as our farmers are now con
erned, should not at this time
waste their efforts to make itpara
:nount; measures to get relief
Erom that curse can be taken
ater, at present we see no re
.ief to come from that source.
What is needed, is something
which will be effective this
season, and in all earnest
ess we tell you to make the to
baccotrust paramount now, will
be a wasted effort, but you can,if
y-ou will, knock the spots out of the
0tton seed oil trust this very
season. Will you do it? Then
old your cotton seed, urge your
benants to do the same, encour
age those you have influence
with to refuse to sell their seed.
md the result will be, the mills
will pay at least 40 cents per
ushel for them. The mill man
igement may sneer at the propo
ition for a while but will-.pay the
price when convinced that the
larmers are in earnest. When
you make the cotton seed trust
he paramount issue, you bring1
to your aid all farmers and mer
Thants who do business with far
ers-all of our farmers plant
otton, whereas all do not plant
bobacco, We want all manner of
:rusts resisted, and if the govern
ent was indeed a government
Eor the people, laws would be en
cted and enforced to land the
manipulators of trusts in the
penitentiary, because they are
schemers legalized by law to steal,
ad to screen the stock-hold
ers from full responsibility. The
Law fixes an ordinary business
ao-partnership, so that every
partner is responsible for the
acts of the concern, but a
pecial privilege is g r a n t
ad to corporations, which
only makes a stock-holder re
sponsible for his stock, and which
is altogether at variance with
the democratic doctrine-equal
rights to all and special privil
ages to none.
When you organize do not let
anybody kick up so much tobac
0-trust-dust, as to blind you
from the sight of the cotton-seed
il-trust. The tobacco must be
lisposed of or you meet with a
botal lost, not so with your cot
Lon seed, if the mills refuse to
pay a just price for the seed,you
:an use them with advantage to
your lands-our idea is, that it
would be a great blessing if the
mills would shut down and refuse
mo accede to the demands of the
Earmers, in that case much land
lepletion would be saved, but
mhe mills will not shut down, they
nust have the seed, and at 40
3ents per bushel their profits will
be an enticing investment.

The farmers are beginning to
realize the ti ue condition of
affairs; they have known for a
long time that something was
keeping their profession back,
but circumstances were such
that to seek relief meant danger
of losing credit; things are dif
ferent now, competition in the
credit line has been quickened,
banks have been established,
moneylenders are in the fieldand
no longer does the little 20 per
cent. money-lender monopolize
credits, hence we say, the farm
ers are in condition to have done 1
unto them, those things which
are of them demanded, and al
though, many- are still fettered
with debt shackles, and are
straining, and praying earnestly
for the chains to be broken that
they too might breathe the life
of freemen as a just God in
tended,there are many who have
by their bloody sweat unfettered
themselves, and can by their pre
cept and example give encour
agement and aid to their co
It is a crying shame, in this
land of boasted freedom, under
a government by and for the
people, thatTaw is manufactured
which p its the formation of
com ions to operate in di
P pposition, and in antago
ism to the people's interests.
The trusts are robbing them
they are convinced, and nothing
has been more convincing, than
the manipulations of the oil
trust; the fact of operating
against the local consumer is
sufficient evidence to damn these
institutions in the sight of honest
Organization is the o n 1 y
method we can advise to check
the ravages of the wolves oper
ating the mills; keep your seed
at home, do not. sell them for
prices which permit extortion,
and require the mills to pay a fair
value for the raw material. Will
you do it? Yes. The men who
have their money locked up in
the plants will not permit their
machinery to get idle, they must<
have the raw material, and just1
as soon as they realize that the
farmers have come to their1
senses, and the jingling of a lit
tle silver is no longer a decoy,
they will put out more silver~ and
instruct the managers of their
mills to raise the price of seed
to meet the just demands of
those who hold the raw material.
The enormous profits that
have been made by the oil mil.ls,
convinces us that the oil trust
has not been treating the farmers
justly-they have paid less for
the raw material than its value;
they can pay at least 40 cents
per bushel for seed and then
make a larger profit than is
usually made in any other legit
imate business. We believe that
40 cents per bushel for seed will
give them a clear profit of at
least 30 per cent on their invest
ment even if their stock is wat
ered. Why, if a merchant was
to undertake to sell his goods on
the basis of profit made by the1
oil mills, his goods would re
main on his shelves, and be cov
ered with cobwebs on account of
a lack of purchasers; if a bank :
undertook to extort such profits,;
the merchants and other busi
ness men who do business
through banks would avoid it
like they would a pest house-:
they would not stand it, then why
should the farmer upon whose
hard toil all must depend, stand
such unmerciful extortion?
Organize, and do not let the:
whimpering excuse of "politi
cians getting in" retard you.:
When your townships have been
organized,and you send delegates
to the county meeting to make
laws to govern your organization,
make it strictly a farmers organ
ization by putting a clause in your I
laws, that will make ineligible I
for membership, lawyers, doc -
tors, preachers, editors and mer
chants. When this is done, all
the professions and avocations
not holding stocks, will give
their encouragement. One of the
main reasons for difficulty to get
the farmers organized is, because
politicians are usually g 1li b
talkers; they are put in control,
and when they have secured the
goal of their ambition they leave
the farmers to paddle for them
selves. The Alliance was an
object lesson, when we look back
to those who tramped over this
State organizing the Alliance,
we find the prominent leaders
landed in Congress. They were
sent there to fight the aggres
sion of corporations. Have they
done it? Tillman is now interested:
in an oil corporation, Latimer is
interested in a mining corpora-:
tion, and the others interested,
more or less. in corporations
also. Tindal and Donaldson who
we believe sincerely labored for
the uplifting of the farmers, and
who are still clinging to their in
terest in the farmers welfare
hwae been releamted, but the
tobacco trust by. getting the
farmers t o b u i l d tobacco
factories, the same people howev
er do not urge the building of cot
ton seed oil mills; our farmers
cannot build and operate success
fully tobacco factories, nor can
they build and operate success
fully cotton seed oil mills,for the
reason, there will be too many to
account to and naturally dissen
sions would arise-it is impracti
cable and were it practicable it
would be ineffective this season,
but immediate relief from one of
the trusts is in sight, and we urge
a strong, determined pulball-to
gether against the unjnst meth
ods of the cotton seed oil trust.
The farmers have it in their power
with honesty and justice on their
sideand itis for themto do it now,
or suffer longer. Will they act?

John Slab, come again with your ru

about the big gun up North. We enjoy
your views. Hit the war housemen an
other hard lick, we do not believe they
are in sympathy with tie farmers, if
if they were. they woul-I reduce their
charges. They certainly want tobacco,
or why is it they have drummers out
scourig the country advising the far
mers to sell, telling them it has gone up
several cents on the pound, and will
continue to advance.
Farmers, be on the look out for such
men hovering around, they know noth
ing about the prices on the Danville
market nor any other trust market,they
are out to make a little commission for
themselves. We do not know what ef
fect it will have, but it cannot hurt us
any to hold what we have, it might
worry the trust a wee bit. You have
started the ball to rolling, keep it ago
ng: let every man put his shoulder to
the wheel and see if we cannot getalit
tle relief. I see by THE TIMES that
temporary President Hodge has ap
pointed responsible and industrious men
to organize the townships-a proper
course, and we hope every township will
respond, because we agree with TIE
TDIES editor that in this day of manip
ulation, gouging and fleecing, the only
salvation for the farmer lays in organi
zation and manhood. Come fellow far
mers get together like men and hold

who are patted on the back and told to

mers." The farmers have not yet. suc
ceeded with their attempts to organize
but this is no reason why they shall al
ways fail. I believe if we organize on
the lines advised by our friend, THE
TIMES, we will make some of the trusts
think there is "a hot time,'*and the peo
