They p.eked for the free aril unlimited

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

with it and forever.*' The proud Saxon
spirit, and courage, and patriotism
which crowned the heroism of the

lie now summoned lo break the galling

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
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.

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.
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

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.
We offer you a remedy which if
used as directed, insures safety to life
of both mother and child.

Belle of Nelson Whisky
The only unadulterated, pure and
genuine brand of Kentucky, Belle of
Nelson Whisky. It is famous the world
over, and wherever the stars and stripes
float, there you will find this excellent
beverage. So famous has it become,
that imitation “belles” like Queen of
Nelson, King of Nelson, Pride of Nelson,
and other brands have sprung up like
“mushroor.s” in imitation, but none of
them have taken rank or found favor
with the original “Belle of Nelson.’
For this celebrated beverage, and other
well known brands of wines and liquors,
