Wi WILL A6K TB MERCURY, at
Hickory, once more, to explain
.where the interest on the $35,
OOO.UU paid in to the Alliance by
the larmera of this State baa gone?
i he interest on that amount for
about lour yeaji, compounded is
. about 814,300.. .The farmers after
waiting about four, years are get
ting back less than the amount
they put in. Some body has re
vtived benefit. Who is it Mr.
We would have the farmerB to
look into his matter. The prin
cipal and interest now amounts to
about $50,000.00 and at the rate
the farmer 'is getting his money
back" it sebms that." about $20,000
have disappeared. The farmsrt'
demand an explanation.
The ILkrcUry is free to drink
when the water suits him, biit he
will not touch , any thing except
from his owri spring unless he can
turn it in his cwn favor.
As tiie Mercury does not rise
to explain, we will ask him to re
main seated and givr the facts.
An intelligent farmer, and an
Allianceman, asks an explanation

may be tho case, but we give our
selves no trouble by these proph

coming to an end at stated' times
since we were a boy; but it con

why he was making the joume

pensive to go on the cars. The
railroad fair would have been

never enters their minds. We
saw a man hauling dirt on a
wheelbarrow. The distance
proper, that he had to make was
not more than 20 yds., but there
was a chasm about 6. inches wide
and of the same depth lying be
tween him and thI. objective
point. He actually rolled that
wheelbarrow 150 yards in order to
reach the place of unloading; when
within a few feet of him lay a
piece of plank 3 ft. in length and
10 inches wide. We suggested
to him that he might shorten the
distance by adding about three
feet of plank at the proper place.
Correspondence of Coxxaisg.
Washington, March 12, 1894:
Democrats, even those who are
personally opposed to some of the
chaages made, are glad that the
Senate Finance committee has at
last got the tariff bill in shape to
make ita passage by the Senate cert
tain. It is really surprising, in
view of the radical chauge made by
taking sugar, iron ore, coal and lead
ore trom the tree list and patting a
( dutv qdou them, that the democrats
of the House are not loader in their
objections. But they regard the
matter from a common sense point
ot view, knowing that the democrats
of the Senate Finauce committee
yielded uothiug that it was uot ab
solutely necessary to yield lu order
to get the voles necessary to pass
the bill, and also that they will have
another chance at the changes when
the bill goes to conference after its
passage by the Senate.
The republicans of the Finance
committee would like to waste a
month or so by keeping the tariff
bill in committee, bat the democrats
will not allow any such time. If
they will agree to have the bill re
ported in a week the democrats
will allow 'them that much time ; if
not the bill will be reported sooner
without their consent.
