that the Democratic administration is
trying to carry out its pledges to the
people. The Republican administra
tions as far as we can remember have
persistently refused this help. It was
an interlocked system of the Treasury
Department, preferred New York City
banks and the cotton and stock ex
changes. These agencies controlled and
withheld from the South especially the
money that should have been in use to
move cotton and other products to
market. It was the means by which
prices were depressed and it was done
effectually. It was a much more po
tential influence than the formation of
pools to depress quotations. The Gov

Speaking a short time ago about the
effect of the Wall street movement on
markets we did not aim to infer the
existence of local combinations. Local
combinations are not necessary to fur
ther the schemes of these big interests.
They do not need the assistance of local
combination. They bave perfected a
machine that works without it.
The name of the local dealer is often
linked with combination influences. He
may be in sympathy with them, but he
is not a factor.
The principal cause of the deflection
in prices at market time is the fact that
the crons are rushed to market without
money enough to move them. The
local dealer has no part in withholding
this money. The Treasury Department
and the big banks in collusion with Wall
street are alone responsible, and the Re
publican tytrty ha8 fostered this condi
tion of things.
The farmers could have protected
themselves by storing tbeir cotton and
grain in private warehouses of their own,
but they refused to go -to the expense
and trouble, and the result was that they
.-submitted from year to year to the Wall
.street manipulations. .
But now comes the Democratic -administration
proposing to give the pro-
ducors a square deal. The Administra
tion proposes that the South shall bave
some of the money that it takes to move
crops, that market prices shall be sus
tained so far as lies in the power of the
Government and the producer as well as
the banker protected.
This is what the Administration pro
poses to do, and it is one of the first
