BEWARE OF DEBT.
The Alliance Offers a Remedy for Na
tions as well as Individuals.
Possibly no command of God is so
universally disregarded as this injunc
“If thou lend money to any of my
people that is poor by thee, thou shalt
not be to him a usurer, neither shalt
thou lay upon him usury.”—Ex. xxii,
“Take thou no usury of him or in
crease but fear thy God; that thy broth
er may live with thee.
“Thou shalt not give him thy money
upon ursury nor lend him thy victuals
for increase.” —[Lev. xxv, 36 37.
Ezekel xix, 7 says : “He that hath not
given forth upon usury neither hath
taken an increase hath withdrawn his
hand from iniquity and hath executed
true judgment between man and man.”
What is usury ? It is interest. Not
as some would say, interest charged
above the legal rate, but it is simply in
terest. This command of holy writ is
one of exceeding judiciousness. Its
disregard has caused the tottering of
nations and the wreckage of unnum
bered thousands of individuals.
In this day debt means interest, says
the toiler. Jf interest had been pro
hibited whei' the Christian religion
first dawned upon an enlightened
world we would never have known na
tions to groan under bonded debts,
neither would individuals have sacri
ficed pleasures of home because of
promissory notes and mortgages. The
point is, had interest never been coun
tenanced by civilization the infamous
national and individual debt system
would have died without a beginning.
It would be a herculean task to now
attempt to legislate against interest,
that is to attempt to prohibit the prac
tice between borrower and lender, but
all admit that there would be no bor
rowing or lending was it not for the
interest or usury.
Beware of debt, because with it
comes interest and usury, a plague to
nations and a curse to man. There is
remedy for nations which is also a rem
edy for indivuals. Do as the Allitnce
proposes, give us legal tender green
THE ISHMAELITE WEAKENS.
It Has Seen the Hand-Writing on the
It is very plain that the Atlanta Cleve
land worshipers do not understand the
temper of the democratic masses of Geor
gia and in the other southern states.
They evidently believe that the people
are only half in earnest in demanding
financial reform. They foolishly satisfy
themselves that with the free coinage
bill out of sight it will be out of the
popolar mind ; and that, then, all that
will l>e left to be done will be to trot out
the corpulent and asthmatic old hack
that shuffled on the track, and hobbled
off it, in 1888, to win a glorious and
Very well; we shall see them have a
rude awakening. The immense demo
cratic majority in the present congress is
due directly to the pledge of financial re
form as well as tariff reform. What
answer will be when the masses
demand of their democratic representa
tives why the pledge of financial reform,
of the free coinage of silver, was not
Weakened down bp third party defec
tion, the democratic organization, at best,
had only a fighting chance for victory
before the disastrous failure of the free
coinage bill. Now the defection will go
forward at an accelerated pace, and
thousands will flock to the revolutionary
standards where only scores could have
been counted under conditions of demo
cratic faithfulness to democratic pledges.
This the outiook ; and the paper that re
joices in the existence of the conditions
that have led up to it, is either faithless
in its democratic professions or else has
a fool way of manifesting its loyalty to
thut great party.
How far the nomination of a true
democrat, on a platform pledged to tariff
reform and financial reform and all other
needed reforms, would serve to reconcile
the masses of the south to further sup
port of the democratic party, the Ish
maelite has no way of knowing. Os one
thing it is certain; if the treacherous
blow which Wall street democrats struck
the democratic free coinage measure in
the house should be endorsed by the
democratic convention and the principle,
or the want of principle, involved in it
should be embodied in its candidate,
then democratic supremacy, even in the
south, may be set down as a thing of the
These are plain words, but they are
truthful ones. There is never any justi
fication for speaking words of any other
sort, eithor for personal or party ad
When Jerry Simpson, on the floor of
congress, challenged both democratic and
republican congressmen to point out a
single law that had been enacted for the
wealth producers in the past twenty
years, there was not one who had sand
enough in his old political gizzard to
accept the challenge. Yet Jerry is dub
bed by the old party papers of Kansas
an “illiterate chump.” There must have
been two or three hundred “chumps” in
congress about the time that challenge
was made.—Winfield (Kan.) Free Press.
Under Tammany statesmanship, New
York can never expect to become a pro
gressive and well-administered munici
pality. When the great nonofficial
mass of respectable citizens become suf
ficiently awake to the loss they suffer
through their present misgovernment
they will forget the irrelevant dis
tinction bstween republicans and demo
crats, and will unite to deliver their
metropolis out of the hands of the
horde of gjanizaries and bashibazouks
that now ravage and despoil it.—Review

MR. J. W. BROWN’S CERTIFICATE.
To WHOM IT MAY CONCERN :
This is to certify that I was at Cincinnati at
the conference of May 19th, 1891. That I went
there at the request of Douglas County Alli
ance, of which I was and am the president.
That C. C. Post and L. F. Livingston were also
at that Conference and that B. o. Post acted in
full harmony with Col. Livingston during that
meeting. I was at a meeting of the leading
men at that conference, probably fifty being
present including both C. C. Post and L. F.
Livingston, and at this meeting Mr. Living
ston gave those present to understand that he
was with them in sentiment and only refrained
from coming out openly for independent
political action then because he feared the
South was not yet ready, and because they
were pledged to wait until che22dof February
at which time he said they were going en
masse into the third party.
Col. Post accepted the position of member
of the National Committee of the People's
Party for Georgia with the full approval of
Col. Livingston and with the understanding
that he was doing so to prevent any one from
being appointed who would not work in har
mony with Livingston or who might for selfish
purposes use the position to cause a split in the
movement in Georgia, When Livingston
changed his plans and decided to betray the
movement Bro. Post had no recourse left but
to stand in the breach and warn the peo
ple of their danger, and at once proceed to do
the work of organizing the People’s Party
which we had expected that Livingston would
do and which he was in honor pledged to do.
