PKINTERS' INK.
There is magic in the name, as there
is virtue in its use.
But the purpose of this article is not
a homily on the value of that simple
yet wonderful compound which, with
the invention of type and the printing
press, has been one of the chief agencies
in the world's civilization, but in recog
nition of the merits of a publication
bearing the above title, issued weekly
by Messrs. George P. Rowell & Co.,
npwsnaner advertising agents, .o. 10
1 1 "
Spruce street, New York City.
As its name implies, it is a journal
for use and information of advertisers,
of interest alike to newspaper publish
ers, printers, business men and others
who are in any way associated with
printers' ink and the results following
its use. Advertising is the lever that
moves the business world, and the ob
ject of this little paper is to teach men
how to use it scientifically.
Printers' Ink belongs to a distinct
type of journalism, and is one of the
few publications designed to fill a
" long felt want " that really supplies a
demand. It is unique, entertaining,
and instructive. A model of typo
graphic art, it is an object lesson to
printers and publishers a paragon of
excellence in subject matter, arrange
ment and display. It gives new ideas
and suggests new methods, and much
valuable information will be gained by
the intelligent reading of its pages.
To enlarge its sphere of usefulness we
could suggest nothing better than the
adoption by the publishers of the same
methods they have employed with such
signal success in establishing the fame
and fortunes of thousands of others.
Business is conducted much on the
principle of war. The best organizers,
the most skilful strategists and adroit
campaigners men who plan correctly
and execute boldly are the ones who
achieve highest distinction and success.
So, in the field of advertising, men
must know how to concentrate their
efforts and dispose their forces to obtain
greatest results. This requires keen
foresight, practical experience and su
perior knowledge. Not every man has
these qualities combined in him. He
needs the assistance of a capable and
honest man who makes a specialty of
planning and placing advertisements.
Such men are George P. Rowell &
Co. l or more than twenty-five years
they have conducted an advertising
bureau, their business being to prepare
advertisements and secure their inser
tion to best advantage in the leading
newspapers and periodicals of the
country, and there is not a publisher or
prominent advertiser who is not familiar
with their name and methods of busi
ness. The science of advertising has
become a fine art and these gentlemen
are artists in their peculiar line.
Advertising is the chart of trade
which guides the mariner of business
into the Harbor of Success.
Advertising is essential to success in
any business, and it is admitted by the
Dest authorities that newspaper adver
tising is the most effective and cheapest
in the end.
Have you any advertising you want
done? lhen you cannot do better
than entrust it to Messrs. Rowell &
Co., feeling assured that their superior
judgment and experience will enable
them to put it where it will bring vou
'6
the best returns. They cast

Only Two l'avties in this Country,
The People A srainst the Plutocrats
A Political Cyclone Pre
dicted for 1892.
Col. L. L. Polk, President of the
National Farmers' Alliance and Indus
trial Union, spoke in Wadesboro, his
native town, Feb. 24th. We take from
the Messenger of that place the follow
ing synopsis of his address :
I stand up here before my people
and tell you the truth. You have been
humbugged long enough ; you have
been tatfied
long
enough. I have
traversed this country from one end to
the other. I have looked upon its
great cities, its magnificent rivers, its
busy hives ot industry, but when I
stand in the presence of the honest
veomanrv. the great middle classes of
our country, who are the palladium of
our liberties, who pay 80 cents of every
dollar of taxes collected, who clothe
I the world ; the men without whom
our ships would rot at tneir gocks ;
the men without whom Jay Gould,
with all his boasted millions would
starve, 1 torget all tms ana rememoer
that the glory of this country rests, at
least, in the hands of this people. I he
questions which confront our country
at this time require the sternest states
manship, the purest patriotism, to
solve. These conditions which exist
to-dav show that things are out of
balance. When, in the memory of
the oldest inhabitant of this county,
were manufacturing enterprises in a
more flourishing condition? Never.
When was the growth and prosperity
of railroads greater than now ? Never.
At what time in our history was the
growth of cities and towns greater ?
Never. When, in all your long life,
did agriculture languish so? Never.
In 1850 the farmers of this country
owned 70 per cent, of the wealth of
the country, and paid 8; per cent, of
all the taxes; in 18S0 they owned
only one-third of the wealth of the
country, but still paid 80 per cent, of
the taxes. In 1880 the total wealth of
the country was forty-three billion
dollars, and of this sum taxes were
paid on only twenty-six billion dol
lars, and of this amount fourteen billion
belonged to the farmers of the country.
I was approached on the streets of
Raleigh last week by three members of
the Legislature who asked me what
they must do about voting an appro
priation to the Agricultural and Me
chanical College. They said that the
tax would have to be increased if so
many appropriations were made, and
they did not know what to do about
it. I told them to go back and intro
duce a bill in the Legislature that will
unearth the hidden property in North
Carolina and make it bear its just
share of the burdens of the govern
ment, and then needed apprppnations
can not only be made, but taxes re
duced at the same time. Put a seal
into the hands of tax assessors, and let
these men who own the mortgages and
notes bring them to him, and let him
stamp upon their face the word "as
sessed," and unless they are so stamped
make them uncollectable by law. I am
siek and tired of seeing the farmers
carrying the burden of this country.
Would to God that we had a Con
gress and a Legislature that would do
them justice.
What we need is more money to
transact our business. Political doc
tors will tell you that money will buy
more now than ever before, and ask
what are you farmers growling about
anyhow? Others say your laziness,
extravagance and improvidence has
brought you to your present condition,
but I say no class of men workso hard,
or live so hard as the farmer. Mr.
Dodge, the statistician at Washington,
says agricultural depression is caused
by a lack of diversification. Mr.
Morrill, the father of the Senate, says
the trouble is over-production, but I
say there is no over-production as long
as there is a single cry for bread. It
is not over production that is causing
the trouble, but under-consumption.
One man tells us that the farmers
ars to blame, another that God is to
blome, but the real trouble is that we
are groaning under the most unjust
financial system the world has ever
seen. Negro supremacy, bloody shirt,
the tariff are all shouted in our ears to
keep us off of the real reason, the
money question. I am not afraid that
a negro will ever rule over L. L. Polk.
A financial system has been imposed
upon this country the most wicked
that was ever devised by the Crain of
man. If not changed it will make us
a country of millionaires and paupers,
and neither millionaires nor paupers
are friends of civil liberty. The great
middle classes are being wiped out.
The people of this country have arisen
in their might and sworn that the
government shall be administered in
the interest of the many.
Millionaires are very common now.
The Senate is composed of S4 mem
bers and 46 of them are millionaire?.
Thirty-one thousahd people own over
half the wealth of this country. They
did not get it honestly and fairly;!
they can't do it. (A voice fronA the
audience, "They got it by robberyV")

nothing less. There were some, when
the Alliance was first organized, both
in it and out of it, who thought that it
was intended to make war on the mer
chants and professional men.

this question. God knows I have no

I want to say something to you,
farmers. There are 300 lawyers and
only 13 farmers in Congress. Some
body ought to growl and complain ;
yes, somebody ought to have a whip
ping. Who's to blame ? (A voice from
the crowd, "We all.")
There has never been a period in
our history when the masses have de
voted themselves to study as they have
during the past thirty months. I want
to say to the man who does not study
the great questions of the day that he
is going to get left.
They tell us we ought not to go into
politics. Let the tell you officially
not in my capacity as an individual,
but as an official this farmers' organ
ization is as full ot politics as an egg
is of meat. What are we to do if we
are not allowed to go into pontics r
Pay your taxes and vote as you are
told, is the answer you get.
There is a difference in politics and
nartvism. Politics is the science of
government, and I charge you to study
politics.. Partyism is a collar around
the neck with a brass chain fastened
to it.
"But," .they cry, "can't you buy 1
more now than ever before with a dol
lar? But where is the dollar?
Where's the dollar you can buy so
much with ? That's what we are quar
relling about. But that's not the ques
tion. It's not the purchasing power
of the dollar, but the debt paying
power that we are concerned about.
Does it pay any more taxes ? Does it
pay any more interest on your notes
and mortgages ? What's the matter?
The contraction of the currency has
placed the power of controlling the
money in the hands of the plutocrats
to the crushing of the masses. We all
remember when the circulation was
?5i per capita, and we want a
Congress that will give us that
amount again. If the present Congress
won't do it, we will elect one that
will.
We believe, as an organization, that
we ought to have an open field and a
fair chance, and we intend to have it.
We went to Congress and asked lor
relief. The sub-Treasury bill was pre
sented to Congress and nearly scared
them to death. How did they treat
us? They were the most say-nothing
set I ever saw. Finally one prominent
politician poked his head up above the
waves and said, "Your bill is uncon
stitutional." The next week another
one did the same thing, and so on
through the whole list. No two of
those deliverances were made in the
same week. I do not say that this
was a preconcerted arrangement, but,
to say the least of it, it was certainly
a beautiful coincidence. Not one of
thera attempted to prove its unconsti
tutionality. They expected you to
believe it unconstitutional because
they said so. When you finally pin
them down, they say it is unconstitu
tional because the government has no
right to lend money. Is that so? Let
us see. In 1876 Congress appropri
ated $1,500,000 to the Philadelphia
Centennial. When the Government
demanded the return of the money,
its payment was resisted on the ground
that it was simply an appropriation
and not in the nature of a loan. The
case was carried to the Supreme Court
of the United States and it was there
decided that the advance was a loan,
and therefore must be repaid. In 1884
the Exposition of New Orleans asked
for a loan of $1,000,000, and the con
stitutionality of the bill was so plain
that it passed the Senate by a unani
mous vote. And who voted for this
bill in the House? Hon. Walter L.
Steele, of Richmond county, did, for
one, and Hon. Risden Tyler Bennett,
of Wadesboro, whom I regard as the
equal of any man in North Carolina
as a constitutional lawyer, did, for an
other. Is it unconstitutional for the Gov
ernment to loan money ? Yes when
it is proposed to loan it to the farmers,
but it is all right to lend it to 319
National banks at 1 per cent, per an
num. It is perfectly constitutional to
store whiskey, but awfully unconstitu
tional to store bread and clothes.
The Government is nothing but the
agent of the people. I don't believe
the Government has any more right
to refuse to issue money to the people
than it has to come here and put me
in your jail to-day.
"But," they say to us, "your bill is
impracticable." Well, suppose it is;
it is only so in its detrils, and you are
paid to make it practicable. You say
it is unconstitutional ; it is your duty
to fix it.
The passage of the sub-Treasury bill
was petitioned for by over 60,000
men. What has become of the bill and
the petitions ? They sleep the sleep of
death in the pigeon holes of the com-,
mittee to which they were referred.
The place hereafter to put your peti
tions is in the ballot box. They will
be heard there.
They admit we need relief, but
what have they done ? The silver bill
was passed in the Senate and we
good, thinking it would certainly pass
tne House on a direc; vote. But it
now sleeps the sleep of Legislative
death, and your best chance of relief
from, this Congress is gone. And Mr,
Cleveland, one of the great leaders of
the National Democracy, stands over
its grave and does not shed a tear, but
smiles at its downfall.
This Congress has not passed a
single bill in the interest of the people.
What are we to do ? They say we
must not go into politics. I believe I
am doing God's work in advocating
the principles oi this order, and I have
consecrated all t'.iat I am. and all
t I ever ever expect to be, to this
at work.
e of the great things to be ac
hed by this organization is the
wipirnmput of every semblance of
j Mason aiLpixon's line in alliance ter
ritory. LeCe make you a predic
tion ; let me t!Vyu what I believe.

say let it come. I believe we have
God and might on our side.
Now, my friends, do not be fright
ened about this political question.
Sectionalism has been an issue for the
past 25 years, but the decree of God
has gone forth that we are one people.
I want to say that the political cyclone
is gathering, and will sweep this
country in 1892.
Relief must come from the National
Legislature. To get it the personnel
of that body will have to be largely
changed. These are plain words, but
they are true words.
Our order was never in a more pros
perous condition. By 1892 we will
control, together with organizations
associated with us, between five and
six million votes. What is it we can
not do ?
Young: Men's Notes.
The Monday night talks at the Young
Men's Rooms have become very popu
lar and the hall is taxed every week
to accommodate those who wish to at
tend. Over 100 people were there Mon
day night to hear Dr. Arch Cheatham
tell them what to do in case of acci
dent, and they seemed very- much in
terested, too. No wonder, for it was
a most excellent talk, and so plain and
practical that it could not help but in
struct as well as entertain. There will
be no talk next Monday night, but the
week following, March 10, Mr. W. V.
Savage will speak.
The regular monthly business meet
ing was held Monday night after the
talk. A number of delegates were
elected to the State convention, which
meets soon in Durham, and the execu
tive committee was instructed to issue
credentials to all who could attend.
Next Sunday afternoon Rev. W. L.
Cuninggim will speak to men only on
personal purity; taking the subject of
"Proianity." All men should hear
him.
Prof. Alderman, who is now holding
the Teachers' Institute for Vance
county in this town, has kindly con
sented to deliver his famous lecture
"Manners and Customs in North Caro-
liua 100 years ago" for the Young j
Men's Christian Association. He will !
speak at the rooms on Friday night, 1
March G, at 7:45. Admission free and
no collection. The ladies are specially j
invited, l'rof. Alderman is one of the j
pleasantest speakers in the State and ;
all our people should make it a point
to hear him. j

The Nashville Railroad.
Mr. Editor: What has been done
toward the construction of the road our
town voted forty thousand dollars for ?
I see that Oxford has obtained a char
ter for a road from that point to Nash
ville which, if built, will turn the yel
low tobacco raisers in the east to the
Oxford market. The eastern counties
are going largely into the culture of a
very desirable grade of tobacco, and
they want a good market for it. If
Oxford builds a road through their sec
tion, with cheap rates of transporta
tion, of course she will get the tobacco.
There is nothing clearer than that our
Henderson people, having done nothing
to direct it this way, will lose it.
If the K. & D. R. R. Co. are at the
bottom of the movement the road will
wnd&rrTf? I
is to their interest to do so. We had
some evidence of their wakefulness in
the construction of their line via Oxford
and Durham, when, with a small out
lay of money and a timely activity, we
might have brought it to our town.
And now it looks like we are sitting
quietly down content to let the R. &
D. Co. buikl a road through the east
ern counties and transport the tobacco
that belongs to our market by location
to another town. With a little effort
we could turn the eastern tobacco to
the Henderson market. Our eastern
friends like our market and would glad
ly send their tobacco here if they had
railroad facilities to the place. We
surely have not become indifferent in
so important a matter. Could we not
induce John Robinson to build the road
to Nashville as a feeder to the R. & G.
road ? We want the road to bring the
eastern tobacco to our market and give
activ ty and progress to our town.
And what difference does it make Lu
our people who" builds it so we can de
rive the desired benefit from it ? It
seems to me ihat Robinson is the man
to buiui It (with our aid) to prevent the
R & D. Co. from reaching out and
gobbling up the freicht that he misht
by timely action secure to his road.
Henderson should look to her interest
in the matter. Oxford will take care
of herself. If we let her take our
eastern road from us and reap the prof
its of the eastern trade, when too late
to repair the damage we will awake to
the error of our course. We have the
matter now in our own hands, and by
a little foresight we can do much for
our town. But let the opportunity slip
110 feeliug of regret will bring back the
lost advantage. "The early bird
catches the worm" and enjoys his
breakfast, while the sleepy headed one
awakes to find it goue. With good
feeders we will have town growth.

were not on! v quickly relieved, but the
disease left no bad after results. We ask

guarantee that you will be satisfied with
results, or the purchase price will be re
