Twenty-two years ago there lived in

One night Mr. j Paine w.w ' called

Remand would govern the price, and
we very well kuow that is not the case
now. for no one can tell what the sup
ply will be. before the seed are planted,
riut gamblers (called the cotton ex
change) will sit back and say what the
farmers will gefc for their cotton before
thev 'plant the s.'ed, and it is no just
taw. Thev may call it the Alliance
going into politics if they choose, but
.ve have got to have a revolution and
it is better to bring it about by the
jallot box than the sword, j It tiiu4
jon;e. Sometimes"", feel more like
shouldering my musket than I did in
1801. The causes of the low price oi
cotton now is the money power of the
.torld trying to grind the laboring class
to powder. The farmers have said
some things about the Wall Street's
Ring, and they are showing the power
that our defective laws give them.
Ve know they are corrupt, for whole
some laws never make so many mil
lionaires in so short a time. The far
mers of the bouth must learn to take
are of themselves. I would say to
che cotton farmers of the South wxt
year to teach the gamblers a lesion by
s-very one buying as many; bales of
futures as he would make and then
plant his land in corn. We can buy
cotton for less than we can! make it.
We must manage to get the speculator
jut of the cotton business, j We pay
too many commissions. Weselltoour
iionie merchants, they sell to some
commission' merchant, and he to the
manufacturner who spins and weaves
it, and then sells the product to the
jobber and he to the merchant. We
sell it for 0 or 7 cents per jibund and
buy it back at 0 or z j cents per pound
or even more. We should sell direct
to the manufacturer, and then we can't
hardly stand our hand. With the low
price of cotton now, the manufacturers
have formed a trust and forced the price
of plaids up and makes us pay 5 or 5
cents per yard and it would intake sieve
bottoms. The reason the farmers have
all other classes to fight in our finan
cial trouble is that no other! class can
expect the cotton farmer feels it so
sensibly as they do. A few years ago
a bale Of cotton would bring fifty or
sixty dollars and now it brings twenty
five to thirty dollars and costs as much
to produce it now as then, j But the
merchant don't reduce his profits, the
lawer and the doctor their fees, or the

as he slapped the engineer upon the

Butler sprang into a waiting car

Another unjust law in mv opinion
is the royalty on phosphate rock that
is used by the farmers of this state. It
all comes fioai the pockety of one class

to manufacturers of the fertilizers if
the royalty was fifty dollars per ton,
thev add it to the cost, as merchants
do the freight on thtfir goods, ami

but I should like for some; of our law
makers to show me the jut right the
