Full of Sound Sense, Good Advice
and Conservatism to the
H m. Ben. Terrell, of Texas, nation
al Jecturcr for the Farmers’ Alliance
and Co-Operative Union of America,
addressed a fair audience in thc court
His coming Imd been pretty thor
oughly advertised, but thc number of
Alliance meu that turned out to bear
him was not half as large as it ought
to have been. 5Ir. Wayne Ivey call
£(1 the meeting to order and introduc
ed the speaker in a few well chosen
words. 5Ir. Terrell is a gentleman of
fine personal appearance, and as he
faced the audience there was an utter
absence of embarrassment on tbc one
band cr the stagey effects assumed by
some speakers. * ■'
Tie commenced by saying that he
was here to appeal to men of all avo
eatiens, pot classes, for in his opinion
we have no classes in America, tc
unite in an effort, in an earnest eflort,
to remove the unfortunate conditions
that surround thc farmers of the conn
try. He said that the object of, the
Alliauee movement was to correct
these untoward conditions of thc farm
ers, and if any man could suggest
better plan, lie would be glad to listen
to him. '
“There was,” said the speaker, ‘‘85.5
per capita; iu circulation in this‘coun
try in 1805, to-day there is only 85
per capita, on which to do thc business
of tbs country. This unnatural con
traction forces a credit system, to con
duet which it is uecessary to use the
money' of thc capitalists, iiud • mort
gages, -distress uud disaster follow in
Mr. Terrell argued thul the con
traction of the currency iu eircujtjtion
hurt the farmer primarily, *ntid
through hint, -those that follow other
Thc nint of thc ulliuncc movement
is to • teach the farmers thc power in
co-operation. To enable them to hold
their cotton'' crop' till they etiiT secure
prices that are remunerative.
The plan proposed by the Allintfce
a substitute for tbc ruinous credit
system now in vogue, is as follows:
Members of sub alliances who are un
able to pay cash, will make a sntistnc
tory paper, by mortgage or otherwise,
to the State trustee stockholder, who
will realize money on it nt the lowest
jossiblu rate. This money will be
handed over to the members by the
month, to be used ns his needs de
maud. A thorough combination and
union among the alliance members
will enable them to hold their cottort
in warehouses till the consumer comes
Mr. Inman treats directly villi the
Texas Exchange for the cotton of the
members of the alliance in that State.
“Cash,” said Mr. Terrell, “is a good
lemon squeezer, and whenever the far
iners become as prosperous ami inde
pendent as they ought to be, it will
my better to farm than to he n
awyer, of a doctor, or a clerk, or-a
politician. You must remedy your
own troubles; ’tis useless to complaiu
J»s long as you ure iu debt. Live eco
nomically, pay as you go, and you
ill be respected. Debt makes Tow
ards of all meu.'
Mr. Terrell said that thc great
dailies of thc country have done much
to demoralize thc people. They spread
sensational news before their readers
after day — murders, suicides,
scandals aud what not.
Mr. "Terrell cited as an illustration
what lie said, the case of one of the
great dailies that devoted a column
and a half to a sensational story,while
dismissed thc heroic devotion of an
engineer, who stood at his post of du
ty and was terribly injured, in n par
agraph of a few Hues.
It. is Mr. Terrell’s idea, aud it is a
most excellent one. that' the sturdy
eomuury of the country ought to
frown down seusutiouulisin iu newspa

worse, said Mr. Terrell, as some men
are in the habit of suyiug, hut thc tel

after it litis happened, Mr. Terrell
related an incident that occurred when
he was scut as a representative of the
Southern Alliance to the nertheru
organization with a view to merging
the two bodies into one.
“We arc willing,” lie said on that
occasion, “to come iu as an equal, but
if you expect us to come iu as con
quered rebels, we will stay out.” Thc
southern organization was invited to
Mr. Terrell saiil that two years af
ter its organization the Alliance order

watchword was, “Equal rights to all,
special privileges to none,” is the

said, " but it is a high compli
ment to him and the order
which he represents, that not one word
was said that could be objected to.
He was particularly emphatic in his
advice to the farmers that they must
work out their own salvation. He
told them it was folly to utter com
plaints, until they ljad made all proper
elforts^to help themselves.
The address was conservative tofu

with trpneliaut points.
