f all ! lie disadvantages and evils
to which the farmer is subjected
there is not one so much to be
loathed and detested as gambling
in tutnres. and speculating in
margins. It prices his products be
fore he plants a seed, and destroys
the oulv equitable and justifiable
law of trade the supply and de
mand. I have seen it stated there
were sold in New York last year
over -10,000,000- bales of cotton
when scarcely 7,000,000 were made.

every part of the State the kind

me by the brethren aud sisters will

I can assure you that 1 shall con

the National Grange decided cars
ago was a legitate subject for dis

At that time it was not considered
partisan. But the election which
has iust convulsed the country
plainly showed it to be distinctly
end iutenselv partisan. I wi

who make one final grab at us as
we pass to that bourn where mo

Now theie is not a farmer or a
laborer that is not more or less
injured by these associations. Not
that thev sointend, for I am well
argue from any political standpoint,
but simply state an undeniable
truth, that no farmer can be bene
fited by accumulating money in the
treasury that is not needed by the
government, especially as there is
not sufllcient currency in this part
of the Union to till the needs and
requirements of the people.
The only Umefit that the advo
cates of a high protective tanfl' has
ever, or can ever claim for the
farmer is that when manufactories
are established there springs up a
demand for farm products. This
fallacy is exploded by the able ad
dress of the acting Master, James
era. rarmers can t auora to give
sach exorbitant rates and should
not allow it. I know it is said to
make the interest less would be to
drive the capital out of the State.
There is not an economic neither
of note or character from Adam
Smith to the present but declares
that high interest ever makes
money scarce, and low interest
more plentiful. 1 would advise the
farmers to see that the next lfgis
