C. < ontinucd from Joel v AO jfcTbe Fiftv flrst. Congress but recently adjourned, was in rest-ion thirteen months, r>Ting that imir it expended in rc-rnid nr. re> * rie billion dollars of the people’s mor.e\ —a sum equal <o $77,000,000 per mouth, $17,500,000 per week, $2,500,000 per day, slo4ooo£pe. hour, $1,733 per minute, and S2B per sec ond.! Let us l>ear steadily in mind that 80 cents of every dollar of this vart sum oatne lrc in the rgiiculttwists of the comply, i ncs-o suffering millions be sieged the doom, of the Uapilol during that time, plead!ms for relief. They were turned away empty handed, their importunities disregarded, their en rt at its ignored. ard they were :iifc lently admmiehed to “to keep rut of polities,” to “ live closer and work harder.”g They p.eked for the free aril unlimited coinagelof silver. Democrats in the Al liance, aid Republicans in the Alliance, •imply’asked their party friends in O r gress to redeini the pledge which both these parties had made before the world in their platforms, and in the most solemn manner We know the result At the dictation of Wall end Lombard streets, men of both parties stultified themselves and their parties he/ore the world and detested this.jnst measure The people asked that national hanks 1 e abolished and gambling in futures be prohibited by irsning mercy diiect to the people r.t (heap rate of interest and in sufficient volume to meet the de mands of the legitimate business of tin country. They formulated and pre rented s plan by which this might be done. Promptly it was. met with the assertion that “"the government lias no power under ti e Constitution to loan money,” and therefore cur bill was ..un constitutional.' I' was asserted that it was “class legislation” and that the hill was “inanpaetirabie." “Class iepisia tion!” Why, our statutory records are crowded with elms legislation in favor of all classes, except, the agricult m ists. “Impracticable!” If true, whose duty was Jit to correct it? “Uncoi i.litu tional!” If tme, whose duty was it to frame a bill that would be constitu tional? What are the duties of mod ern Congressmen? Are they to be con fined continually and forever to the ma nipulation of party schemes by which to gain party supremacy, and to the neg lect of the gieat interests of the coun- try? Is it perfectly constitutional to loan cur money to banks, corporations, expositions and whisky rings, bnfr-tt ig unconstitutional to loan ** wU4 wealth producers of the land. When Wall street, through its heartless gambling on the brain and brawn and sweat and muscle of honest labor becomes en tangled in the meshes of its own wicked devising, it lias only to look to our Sc<- retary of tho State and say : “ Help us, Cassius, or we sink,” and immediately that official flies to its relief on electric wing and pours into its lap $10,000,000 of-the people’s gold. But it would be grossly unconstitutional to come, in re- 1 •ponse to the piteous appeals from eight millions of panic stricken homes all j over the land, and provide relief. It is f perfectly constitutional, in order to get \ $180,000,000 from the vaults to then banks, to pay thereon $12,000,000 in ad- j winced interest, S3O,7OO,(XX)in premiums, I and in order to get it into the pockets of i the people to charge an additional 10; per cent, of $18,000,000. Perfectly con-1 ■titutional to pay to spectators and mo- j nopolists $60,000 000 in premiums and i interest, to put $180,000,000 in eircula- j tion, but it would be shamefully uncon- j •titutional to adopt our plan of a direct | issue to the people of this SIBO 000,0001 at 2 per cent, at a cost cf only $3,600,000, j and which would go into our treasury j to diminish taxation from other sources j and thus save in the one transaction j tho sum of $57,100,000. But no bili j could be framed that would r.ot ho re- j jected by politicians as unconstitutional; if it provided for an adequate amount of! circulation at a low rate of interest, j Money must not be issued direct to tho ; people at a cheap rate, as that would a!* j ways be “unconstitutional,” and therein lies the objection to the suh treasury plan with politicians. On questions of finance, on legislation ; for the relief of the people, there is a a higher court in this country than even j our supreme judiciary. It sits en throned in Wall street, reveling in tlie | strength or its ill-gotten power, and lev- i ies tribute at will on the industrial en- j ergies of the people. In the coming contest between labor and capital, Financial Reform must and will be, the slogan and rallying cry of the people. They want gold robbed of its power to oppress. They demand that silver shall be restored to all the rights in coinage and to all the qualities of legal tender which gold possesses. Thev demand that the circulating me dium of tho country shall be irautf| di rect to the people at a low rate of Tntcr gst and in sufficient volume to do the business of tlie country, and that in whatever form it may be issued, if it bear the imprint of the government and ; is denominated a dollar, that it shall be worth one hundred cents in payment of all dues, public and private. They de mand the prohibition of gambling in futures of all agricultural and mechani cal products. They believe that every acre of our public domain should be se cured to actual setters, and that not one foot of our territory should be held ex cept by citizens of this country. They believe that barriers should be erected between corporate power and the rights of the people. They 4avor absolute governmental control of transportation and telegraph lines, because they prefer that the government should control these great agencies of power, rather) than that they should control the gov-; eminent. They demand a just system ! of gia luated tax on incomes. They de- \ maud that an amendment to the Consti- j tution shall be submitted to the people,! by which United States Senators shall be elected l>y a direct vote of the people. They believe that no interest, or class, l or industry, should be taxed to build up j any other interest, or class, or industry.) They demand that all revenues shall be j limited to the necessary expenses of an honestly and economically administered ; government. From these great qutw tions they cannot and will not be di- j verted. Even the protective tariff, with j all its abominable iniquities, cannot supplant them. Forco biils, “bloody shirts,’’ the cry of “ negro supremacy in the South,” and ot “rebels” in the North, will lose all the power of their i baleful charms in the presence of these great, overshadowing questions. The great mass of ihe industrial classes, North and South, Democrats and ' ltepublicani, without regard to sectional or geographical lines, with one purpose and with one heart, have locked their hands and shields in a common cause— the cause cf a common country. The evils under which they Buffer, and which threaten the destruction of the republic and its institution, are national in their character and cannot be cor rected by sectional remedies. Hence recognizing but one flag—the flag of our eommon country—impelled by a com mon purpose, actuated by a common motive, confronted by a common dan uer, tney have solendv resolved to turn their backs upon the past and make one mighty effort to rescue our government and institntior s from impending peril, they have wiped out, and forever, the last trace of Mason and Dixon’s line across Alliance territory. African slavery is gone, thank God, and in the spirit of manly magr.amitv and frater nity the Allinncemen of the “blue” and tne Alltancemen of the “gray”‘fay: “ la>l the bitterness, animosities and prejudices, born of its existence, perish with it and forever.*' The proud Saxon spirit, and courage, and patriotism which crowned the heroism of the ■ blue and the gray” with undying fame, lie now summoned lo break the galling and degrading chains of white slavery, 'he slavery of honest labor and how fit ting that they should lead in. this glorious struggle for God and humanity. Ye brave men cf tlie North! whet stood by the stars and stripes with a de votion and a courage that would have added anew luster to the splendor of R< me’s legions in her palmiest days— ye brave men of the Scuffr! who stood tiy the sinking stars of a doomed cause w Idle you bore in your rnaply hearts a more forlorn hone than that which in- the six hundred at Bul klava— America’s heroes!

A celebrated English barrister, when . r’e'ending a crlmihal was reminded by tho court that he was extending his ar gument to very great length. Turning! to his honor he said : “ Remember, sir,) that I am pleading foj; the life of a; human being." My friends, if in my zeal I have tran scended the proprieties of the occasion and have wearied your patience, I can enter the plea in extenuation that I am pleading for the life of the republic aud ' the liberties of the people. 1 1 "" . The Farmers’ Alliance Viewed by an Outsider. To the Editor of the Banner. Tbejiolicy of the Farmers’ Alliance is; to be estimated, not ly its constitution ality. but by its intrinsic fitness to pro-1 mote ihe welfare of the people; for, as I j have already said, a great popular patty as this claims to lie, embracing thej masses of educated laboring men in the land, have it in their power to mould j the constitution t 6 accomplish any good purpose they-may have in view. And! surely if the purpose be as Senator Pfef-} fer avows in the quotation already given, “to dethrone the money power” in the country, there would be some necessity for a change of the fundamental law. j [ The Supreme Court of the United States ; j has established the validity of thei I “greenback” as a legal tender, and the ; government, on various occasions, has I interfered for the relief of the money i maiket in times of stringency, always,; j however, limiting the disbursements of j ] the treasury to lawful .objects, whatever ! may have been the effect indirectly in tended. But even all this is very far' ifiom being sufficient, ns a precedent to i justify the government in assuming to 1 lie tiie hanker for the people, creating ! money in unlimited quantities, amt lend- I ing it on the proposed securities of real j j(r personal property. Few persons, I ! imagine, will contend that any thing like | this was intended by the farmers of our; conetiiution, or that such a policy can be legitimately deducted from any of the j povvefs conferred by that instrument, j The exercise of such )lowers was plainly ■ •prohibited to the states; and, except as j to the coining of money and establish-; ing legal tender, it was not bestowed on ; the geueral government. But aside from the constitutional ques tion, what is to be said about the intrin 3ic merits of the proposed measures? This is th really important point to be determined; and after this shall have ! been decided to the satisfaction of (he I people, there will be time enough, and ' trouble enough, to organize its forces aud ! establish the condition necessary to ! overthrow the existing order of things I in the financial world. There can be no safer or better cur ! rency than the “greenbacks,” the notes i of the government, made a legal tender 1 for all purposes; but theso cannot be J issued in unlimited quantities, nor With ; out proper precautions to prevent de j preeiation and to secure their prompt j redemption. This redemption, however, ' need not necessarily be in coin, received i by the government in payment of its I revenues, this fact alone would effeetu j ally sustain an immense issue, regularly j redeemed as often as paid into the treasmy. ~ , , j Toe annual expenditures povided for. by the last congress are well known to] be over one billion of dollars, an aver age of five hundred millions per annum, j How much currency might safely be is sued, without danger of depreciation,, t upon the sole basis of these imuiensg collections and corporations? An ex- ! perienced banker, if unintlueueed by his I | own personal interests and those of bis i class would tell you that they, these J enormous financial operations ot govern- j meat, would keep atloat in the com j inanity a much larger amount of notes! than would be measured by the nominal < sums involved in the transactions them- j selves. Expense alone would satisfac- j torilv work out the problem, and demon- ; st rate the proportions which could be, isafely maintained between the colie,;- j tions and disbursements of the govern-! meet and its issues of legal tender notes, | There lias never been any fair trial of. ■ the policy required to settle this ques- j tion, for the large issues put fourth j during the war, were not full legal ten-! der, they were not receivable for cus- j • toms nor in jwyment of interest on the j public debt Some millions of dollars; issued at the Leginning of the war,; which were made for full legal tender * for all pur post*, never fell below par.' j But the interests of bankers and of capi talists generally, were swayed against j the issues of money by the government; land they had sufficient influence to j maim and cripple tbe policy at its very j outset. It was their game to compel the • government to fund its outstanding ob- I ligdions in interest bearing bonds, and IJo make these the basis of bank note jissuts for their own benefit. It was shrewd foresightrin them to conceal from the pc'-ple as long as they could the . great fact, that they, the people, through f thc-ir government, had the power to furnish an ample amou' of safe and sound currency, upon condition far more favorable to the interests and industries of the masses, those engaged in the work of production and not in com mercial i xchanges. The expenditures of the government under an economical administration, ought n-t to he so much as half a billion annually; at.d 1 think they are not likely to be, until it shall come to pass that government will take control of the railroads, telegraphs, express lines, and other similar branches of business which involve directly the interests of ill. When this shall occur, if it ever •shall, then it is obvious that the trans actions of the government will be vastly increased. Under such a system the collections and disbursements would be amply sufficient to sustain a much larger issue of government notes, probably sufficient to supply all the currency re quirtd by the counfry. 1 have already intimated how seriously all financial problems would be affected by trans it triitg tire ownership of the railroads, ielegrm*b4 etc,., to jhe government for the beiielfi of the people. Five or six billions or stocks and bonds, ndw-iJrAJo -market, feonWHtevM luaUy extihgu;s bed; I and these, instead of being the play things and slakes of gamblers and spec tators, . absorbing the energies and means of numberless idle consumers and non-proddeers, would become the solid foundation of tbe public prosperity, the property involved .becoming the joint property of all tlie people, used wisely aud judiciously for the sole ad vantage of the public. 1 But the government cannot take i private property without making just compen.-a'iui). If it aiijuiro the rail roads and telegraph lines, it must pay for them. When their exigency corues, ; and these companies, that now prey upon (he people while serving them, i shall !e compelled to resign their occu pation into the hands of ths people, they would redoubt be glad to accept government bonds, perhaps even 2 tier cent, bond for their possessions, which of course, they would estimate at an in ordinate value. But this wouLd only substitute rw.e sort of security for an other, asd the markets would be es full as w-ver of tbe subjects of speculation and gambling, though the fluctuations would hardly be so great as before.' It is plain, however, that the acquisition of these vast properties must be gradual, and conducted in such a way as not to jmpose intolerable burdens on tho peo pie under the pretext of benefitting them. A two tier cent, bond would double itself in fifty years, five billions would become ten billions. But by the exercise of proper foresight and tlie precaution, tne government, within fifty years, might well pay a just compensa tion to the ow ners of this property with out subjecting itself to a bonded debt. The gist of the whole scheme is, that these immense values shall be extin guished as private property.. They are ihe creation of the people, let them re turn as a legacy to the next generation, without doing any injustice to the pres ent. As to iho Issue of legal tender notes by the government, there could be nothing safer than tlie advance of such notes on the security of the non-perish able productions of the people, to be re turned and repaid within such period as may be sufficient to enable the parties to reach the market and supply the con sumer. All bankers are well aware that this is the soundest principle on which their business can be conducted. Bills drawn on shiomauts of products, .with bills of lading' attached and proper in surance effected, constitute the solid foundation for all good operations with money. In fact these are the ouly legitimate onjects for which loans ought usually to be made, that is, to facilitate the production and distribution of the annual supplies necessary for the support and comfort of the community. The annual production and consumption of these commodities by the people, are the only true measure by which the currency ought to be regulated. What- ever surplus of productions may remain after supplying the wants of all, is in a large view, generally applied to the pur pose of permanent improvement, build ing houses, making road", etc. But the permanent investments, partaking of the nature cf real estate, do not properly 1 come within the scope of a circulating i medium, intended to facilitate the active ! operations* of productive industry. Otherwise tlie accumulations of gener ation after generation, would require tax represented in the currency, and this would obviously grow tar beyond all reasonable limits. On these grounds, it seems to me, that the government ought not to issue notes to be lent on mortgages of real i estate. The principal objection is, that ' there would be no practical limit to the ; issue required and no effectual means of ; maintaining the currency at par. Under the oilier system, that cf advancing on the annual product ions, there would be a practical limit, a very satisfactory ; measure, and absolute security. The i government would insure the products | received, at a rate profitable to itself, ! and yet advantageous to tbe borrower. There would be no question of impos ing unnecessary burdens on the citizen; and whatever profit might accrue to the government, would eventually enure to the citizen by reducing his taxes, and | pos-ibly by relieving him from all i Federal taxation whatever. Neither gold nor silver, nor both of ! them are the measure of value in trans , actions. This measure is modified by j the devices of busines men. bills, notes, | checks, deposits, clearing house trans ' actions, etc. These are all under the i control of capitalists, and are made to i serve their ends as occasion may occur for their skilful manipulation. But if the government should take this power i out of the hands of capitalists, ami itself | become the banker for the people, there would be less use for gold or silver. These commodojdes are only useful to ; settle balances on the one side or the j other in our foreign trade. They will i probable long remain the nominal staud j ard; and there will be no difficulty in maintaining our mrrency at nar with | gold, especially when that metal shall be ; uo longer used for coin, but shall be i kept mainly in bars for settlement of foreign balances. Foreign trade, which ; ought to be free as possible, is in the last analysis only an exchange of produc i tions; and, in the long run, this exchange must be equal. But temporary balances i occur, ami these must be adjusted. The precious metals are the beet, and most ' convenient commodoties for this pur- I pose, although our recent experience | shows that the true currency for our de ! mestic is the legal tender ! note of the government, even to replace the dime and the nickel. F. P. S. Secretaries ana Delegates Take Notice. That pursuant to Constitution, Marion | County F. A. and I. U. will meet on the first Tuesday after second Thursday in tliis month, same boing the 19th day of i May, 1891. Place of meeting, Board j man, Fia., on F. S. R. R. ! Secretaries will see that their reports are forwarded at once. A fall attend ance is expected. H. W. Loso, Pres. ! Wm Dbho.v, Sec. j W e cannot believe that a majority of the Alliance members of our Florida | legislature are farmers. Senator Best of Missouri, says a farmer is one who tills , the soil for a living. An agriculturist is ; one who owns a farm, lives in a city and goes out now and then to see if Jack ) pots are ripe. By their deeds you shall know them without inquiring’ into the i statues of or the special calling of these Alliance members, but judging by the ) record they are making in the election iaU. S. senator aud other matters of legislation in behalf of the real farmers, 1 they aie of that type that live In the cities, agriculturalists. THE OCALA BANNERL-FRIDAY, MAY 8, 1891, Alliance Vindicator (Sulpnur springs, Texas,) says: Mr. Mills and manv other Democrats in their fight against the sub treasnry say it is partial in its applica tion and would only give a warehouse to the large and populous counties. And then lota of old farmers said “yes, that’s so, Mills is right,” it would be favoring the populous sections and hence, “I’m •agin it right along with Mills.” Now friends, see about this matter. Why don’t Mr. Mills and others object to the free delivery system which delivers every person’s mail in the cities at his sate or door while yon old farmers have to get on your old hard plowed mule or horse and ride to town after yours. Al most every law in the national slalutes are either class laws or partial in their effects and every time working in the interest of money and money centers. Now why have our Democrats never de nounced this as class legislation and favoritism, when tbe government has a whole army of carriers dressed in uni form to carry the qjail to the man in the city while the man in the country, tlie farmer, must go after hie? There are millions of dollars spent this way every year, and yet vou never hear any con gressman complain. On a cold, wet day yon farmers must.do without your mail or split the mud to town after.it, while the city gentleman sits and smokes his cigar in his office until the carrier brings it to his door. You and Mills'are agin that law too, ain’t you? Happy Hoosizrs. Wm. Timmons, postmaster of Idaville, liul., writes: “Electric Bitters has done more for me than all other medicines com bined, from that bad feeling arising froyn kidney and liver trouble. John LestUb farmer aud stockman, of same place, says: •‘Find Electric Bitters to be tbe best kid ney and liver medicine, made me feel like anew man.” J. W. Gardner, hardware merchant, same town says: “Electricßit ters is just the thing for a man who is all run down and dont care whether he livefe or dies; he found new strength, good ap-* petite and felt like he had anew lease /On “life. Only 50 cents a boms at Ed. Del ouest*j store. 2 BALL'S WAISTS. .* To take the place of a’corset—if you won’t wear one—try the Ball waist. That’s, just what you can do. You can try it, aud even wear it for two or three weeks, if you wish. Then, if you’re not satisfied, you cau return it, aud get your money. Iu Missouri a county union refuses to elect as its offioers men who oppose the legislative demands so unanimously agreed upon by our national body as necessary to brin? relief to the depressed farmer. At the organization of the Fourth Congressional District Union of Tennessee, before the election of presi dent and congressional lecturer, Brethren Bush, of Sumner county, and John J. Jellicorse, of Smith, were asked if they indorsed the demands for legislation agreed upon at the Ocala National Alli 'ance .meeting. They both promptly answered that they did. A member who does not endorse them is, of course, eligible to hold any office from the high est to the lowest in our order; but breth ren are tapidly embracing the idea that men ought not to be placed in the lead who are not in accord with the senti ment and combined wisdom and action of onr national body. We believe iu .the largest freedom of thought, speech hndaction in political matters; but if a man can’t conscientiously agree with the majority sentiment of our order, and’feels that he is right aud the com bined wisdom is wrong, don’t place him where he can use his position and a greater influence to prevent that unity of action in demanding relief which is absolutely essential to success. In mat ters of detail or public policy, if every man in the order is going to cling to his individual ideas of relief aud refuse to make any concessions, wo could never hope for relief. If we ever succeed in obtaining a redress for our grievances, brethren, we must pull together just line men in other avocations do. Tariff re form and free coinage of silver are goo#, but neither will alone' suffice while com binations are forcing tlie price of the products of the soil below The cost of production, atul when they obtain the bulk of the crops forcing them up again.
