Clipping from the Farmers' Alliance, reprinted from the National Economist, highlighting the anti-banking views popular among Alliancemen. The author discusses disparities in business practices between other industries and the banking sector, which lords over goverment, railroads, and the people to "rule with despotic power every condition of life." Also included is a piece on the conflict with the jute-bagging trust, a primary foe of cotton farmers, who fought soaring packaging costs due to the trust's monopolistic practices.
