In hi* speech. Governoi Tillman asked

it a preacher had said that he fTillmau)

p-iign. He appealed to the ladies pres
i;t to signify if in their opinion they
, nsidered him a blackguard, but
wa= no response from them.
I ip Governor then said that Orr or any

( '•>! Orr advanced to the Governor and
iii hinghimby the arm wheeled him

The Governor sai l that if Orr did not
criminate tin statement did not apply to

By this time the crowd had become a
raging mob. People ( limbed up on the

Dull Time Figures.
Hi' hard H. Edmonds, of Baltimore,
gives in the August number of the Fwuut
some account of the present resources aud
recent progress of the South. The rec
-0 d is one which every Southerner will
i. a'l with pride aud every other Ameri
•in should rejoice in. We can take only
a lew of the most striking passages in
that record. The South produced 533,-
P 12,000 bushels of com iu 1891, a gain
01 .bout ?-"» per cent, over the production
in The gain in cotton production
w;u about the same, from ">,456,000 bales
in 1881 to neaily 9,000.000 bales last
year. The gain in railioads is even more
remarkable. Ten years ago the South
had 23,000 miles of railroad; now it has
about 45.000. a gain of nearly 90 pei
cent , and the increase in the number of
passengers and thr amount of freight car
ried ha? been enormous. Between 2'-1,-
000,00(1 and 24.000.000 ton* of coal were
mined in the South in only about
(5,(.'00,000 in lfHl. The value of expotfs
from Southern ports has increased from
#257.535,401 to £349.801.999, a gain of
:W per cent., which is nearly five times
the gain made at the oth*r ports of the
United States. The Southern output of
iron is nearly 325 pei cent, greater than
in 18*1. The gain in manufacturing and
banking aud all branches of business has
been great. The assessed value of
pioperty is nearly two billions greater
than in l^wi

of his own at Pomfvet Street. He had
been trying vainly for several years to
in ike people believe his cotton theory,
and th s yeai has venlied it by gtowing
cotton on his farm His crop is a small
one. but it looks splendid. Johnson,
who tended thousands of firres of cotton

adds that, while the Northern season is a

Interesting Reading Of And For

TJzuted States Senator Pefifer, of Kan
sas, otythe Currency Question.
Replying to your request under date
of th f * sth instant in relation to supply
ing the place of national band citcil
lation, I hive to say that in my own
judgment the b&st substitute is what
the people of Kansas favored fouiteen
years ago, namely. United tes notes,
commonly called gi. enbacks; for as you
I kuow, national b« :k notes" aie redcem
| able in I'nited
! would be well to abolish the whole sys
j tem of bank note i=sues No banking
! institution should be permitted t » issue
anything whi' h is *o be used legal
! tender money uuh-s. th n issue is support
| ed by the pawei, and the material used,
whatever it may be. should not be re
deemable in anything. I* ought to go
out to the people as money, fullfledged,
ready for dutv. without any weight or
impediment or conditions of any sort,
what ver. Wh it we use .us money should
be absolutely fii t fr mall conditions, so
that there could be no "runs" on banks
in time of stringency, and no pauics be
cause tie >tors are un ible to obtain iegal
teudei money I b -li ve that the time
has come t:> nationalize our money. We
took one long step in that direction when
we adopted out national banking sys
tem We taxed State bank notes out of
existence, substituted a nationa l cuirency
for a purely lo al currency, aud it was
only a shoii time altci embarking in this
oew enti i piise until we discovered that
the bankers of the country were masters
of the fiuain i d situation. \Ve hud that
instead of seiving the peopl ; they served
themselves. In there were -
©WO,OOO of bank notes tin illation Since
that time about .*210.0 0.000 of it has
been retiied. nol b- viuse the people did
not need the money, but because the
banks realized api 'lit from the sale of
their bond at p e.mium. the bonds that
they had dtp •.>i'• • d i- se« urity for (iicu
lation . Out e\p> rieiue and that of otliei
nations has been that banking corpora
tions are private -chine- for nrorit to ind
vidual persons, :,nd out observation ha a
taught us that there is only one safe way
to avoid the daugcis to which that suit
of financial management subject us; that
is for the nation itself to prepare its own
money, every do'lai of it. issu ■it to the
people directly though government
agencies, wholly without the use and in
fervent ion of banking corporations or
other private agencies.
You under-tand from the foregoing
that I would ii -t only -übstitute United
States notes. ~| tteasury notes, if you
choose, for national bank notes as they
are being retired, but 1 would substitute
that sort of money for a'l bauk issues;
aud I would do even more than that; I
would not make money out of a promise
to pay; that i- to say. I would not wiite
out a ptonii -v to pay money and call that
promise money; but I would use a piece
of paper |u-t as we at.e now using a piece
of gold or a piece of silver, and make
that money, providing in the law what
its functions shall be. That puts the
influence, the credit, aud the power of
all the people behind the money. Then
we will have gold and silver and paper
at par, one with the other; aud that, if
we will reduce rates of interest down to
the level of profit on labor, so that men
can make as much mon?y farming or
blucksmithing ot carpentering as they
can by lending money, will give us a
safe currency, a .sound financial system,
and no more money panics.
I. L. POLK ON THE DOLLAR.
I believe that both of the parties are
afiaid of Wall street. They are not
afraid of the people. They say to me,
"Don't you know you can buy more with
a dollar than \>u over could in the his
tory of our e Mintry?'' That may be
true; but suppose you owed ;fl.oi'o. Ten
year- ago lino i iihel« of wheat would
have paid the debt Now iU requires
1,400 bushel- t • pay :t Suppose you
have $ "j. how nun h more taxes will it
pay? How nun h more interest on your
debt, how many physicians' bills,
i how many more lawyers" fees will a dol
i ldi pay? Will it pay four times as much
i as it did. and how will a dollar cost to
get it?
