Colonel Livingston Explains the Farm
We copy tho following intcrviow
with President Livingston, from tho
Atlanta Journal :
"The ftib-treasury bill, introduced
into congress at the last tension, was
intended to mako operative the St.
Louis demands. .Since wo have added
real urtat as a security for loans, nec
essarily a bill will be drawn different
from the old one.
"Wu have never planted omselves
upon tlie sub-treasury bill exclusively,
but havti always contended for the
plan or principle, and so stated when
before congress. Now we stand upon
the sub-treasury plan as adopted at
Ocnla and demand of congress a bill in
dotail to mako that system operative,
"This can bo dono, as wo declare,
with one or moro sub-treasuries or de
positories in oach state, with or with
out government warehouses. The
present facilities for warehousing will
answer without the expenso of govorn
mcnt warehouses or apparatus.
"In olhor words, if congress will
onaut a law authorizing tho issue of
notes to be deposited in tho states, and
to bo loaned on non-perishablo farm
products and real estato at not moro
than 2 per cent, per annum wo will bo
perfectly satisfied. This is tho Ocala
plan. Wo will and can tako caro of
the warehousing and all necessary
details without any help from tho
government whatever. All that wo
insist upon is thus brioily stated."
What is tho sub-treasury plan?"
"Wo demand that tho government
shall establish sub-trcasuriea or deposi
tories in tho several states, which shall
loan monoy direct to the pcoplo at a
low rate of interest, not to exceed 2
por cent, por annum, on non-porish-
nblo farm products and also upon real
estate, with proper limitations upon
tho quantity of land and amount of
"We demand that tho amount of
circulating medium bo speedily in
creased to not less than $50 per capita
'This is tho Ocala sub-treasury plan,
differing from tho St. Louis plan in
thai real estato is added as a security
upon which to borrow monoy."
"What is tho simple analysis of this
plan? Givo it so the pcoplo can under

taxed or not; also for the right and
power of congress to declare war, and
enlist, for the defense of the credit of
the government, every citizen subject
to military duty, In a word, every
dollar's worth of property and the life
of every man subject to military duty
; would stand pledged for such a cur
rency. This is a much better basis
for an issue than gold or silvor.

"This plan means a currency ac
cording to demand. This is a law of
nature that is stamped upon every
' thing that has left the hand of a wise
and beneficent God, and should be
recognized in every business arrange
ment put forth by man.
"Who has the right or the foresight
to estimate tho amount of currency
needed in a country like this in a
' given period? Who can tell today
what will bo the out-put of the fields,
shops, mines and manufacturers of the
United States for 1891? A currency
should bo useful as a medium ol the
exchange of products. Such an ex
change as will facilitate and help on
to prosperity and well being all wealth
producers. Who besides those inter
ested should settle the question wheth
er they need this facility or not?
"Tho suli-treasury plan means to
declare that the United States congress
is legally and morally bound to fur
nish tho amount of currency necessary,
. to successfully carry on tho business
I of this country, without let or hin
j drancc, to any calling (legitimate) or
i section. The constitution reserves to
congress the exclusivo right to com
I money and fix its value. Congress
; has gone further, and to protect this
exclusivo privilege has taxed all state
corporate or individual issue of certifi
cates or bills of promise to pay, to be
used as a circulating medium, ten per
cent. This plan means to declare that
as long as tho constitution prevents,
through congress, the states or corpo
rations helping themselves on this line,
that congress should and shall furnish
the currency needed upon demand.
"The sub-treasury plan means that
the government credit shall not be a
source of speculation between her citi
zens, thereby placing tho weak at tho
mercy of tho strong, or, as Calhoun,
John C, stated it, '$hy should tho
people be charged interest upon tho
government credit when that credit
culd bo sunt to them without charge?'
In other words, direct to the pcoplo is
our plan. This plan evades premiums,
interest and commissions, and gives
tho people cheap money which the
government is bound to do, or turn
tho people loose and let them supply
number of tho pcoplo the facility for
borrowing monoy, or tho tiho of monoy
in tho exchange of products not for
"It says 'on non-perishablo farm
products and also on real estate.' You
ask mo, why not upon stocks and
bonds? For the simple reason tho
pcoplo havo not and cannot obtain
such collateral. In other words, our
plan is intended to benofit tho pcoplo,
and, therofore, must rest upon such
collateral as tho pcoplo have lands
and crops. It would bo perfect mock
ory to ofTor tho farmers of this country

ovcry intelligent citizen must aithcr

"Tins plan would help the mer
chants and manufacturers in that mer
chants could realize at least tho advance
upon the crops or the whole debt duo

ers could purchase for monthly deliv
eries at le;3 expense."
The Population of Hade.
Certainly an endeavor to arrive at a
correct idea of tho population of hell,
assuming the orthodox idea of it to be
sound, has at least the element of
novelty to recommend it. A recent I
writer has computed that in round
numbers the earth has a population of
1,300,000,000, of which 300,000,000 are
professed Christians, the other 1,000,
000,000 being Mohammedans, Bud
dhists, Jews, Pagan, heathen. The
whole race was condemned to eternal
punishment for the sin of Adam.
This was the fall of man, from which
there was and is no redemption t-avc
through the death of Christ.
Biblical chronology gives the earth
a period of about 0,000 years. From
Adam's time to Christ was 4,000 years,
during which no human soulf were
saved. Tho population then may
have averaged 1,000,000,000. Time
generations, or 3,000,000,000 p-Si
awav in eacli century. Fortv centur
ies, therefore, consigned 120,000,000,
000 of men to eternal fire, and, for all
that is known, thev are there now.
In the 1,900 years which have elapsed
sinco tho birth of Christ 57,000,000,000 ,
of human beings have lived and died
If all the Christians, nominal and real,
who have ever lived on tho face of the
earth have been saved thev would not
number more than IS.000,000,000.
Now, if the latter number is deducted
from the grand total of 177,000,000,-
000, there is found 159,000,000,000
souls who are suffering the torments
of boll firo against the 18,000,000,000
who have escaped. But this is not
the whole truth. Nobody believes
that more tlian 10 per cent of the pro
fessed Christians are saved. Calvin
ists themselves say the elect are few.
If that is a fact heaven contains but
1,8 00,000,000, against a population in
hell of 175,000,000,000. Exchange.
