Terrell, of Texas, nation al Jecturcr for the Farmers’ Alliance and Co-Operative Union of America, addressed a fair audience in thc court house yesterday. 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 the train. Mr. Terrell argued thul the con traction of the currency iu eircujtjtion hurt the farmer primarily, *ntid through hint, -those that follow other avocations. - 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 to them. 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 pers. The world is not growing worse, said Mr. Terrell, as some men are in the habit of suyiug, hut thc tel egraphic reports of the happenings of the whole world, iu a few hours 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 come in. Mr. Terrell saiil that two years af ter its organization the Alliance order numbered 1,000,000 members, whose watchword was, “Equal rights to all, special privileges to none,” is the surest pledge that they have cornbin. ed to do good for themselves and to themselves, without injury ns their motive. They realize that ns they are the starting point of all prosperity, that when they become prosperous all of the machinery of the body econom ic would feel the impulse of their prosperity. Mr. Terrell emphasizes the non- political character of thc Alliance order, but relates an incident that demonstrates its hostility to office seekers who buy votes by money or whisky. It £ impossible to give even a sy nopsis of all tbc eloquent speaker 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 marked degree, and fairly bristled with trpneliaut points. The distinguished speaker went to Cjuitnihn last night, whore lie speaks tc-day. From there he goes to Valdosta, where he will address thc sub-AHiauees of Istwndcs county, the next day. I!. Thomas Jr’s 1 120 Broad Street. O. S.
