Bill Arp.
"Lot not him boast who puttoth
his armor on liko him who taketh it
off," "Lot thoBO laugh who, win,"
"Ho laughs host who laughs last,"
and other maxims to that offeot. Wo
havo had a little episode upbore in
tho mountains, and tho way it has
turned out it looks liko some of us
laughed at tho wrong timo. But it
is all ovor now, and wo oan all lough,
oxoopt those sanguine individuals
who staked their greenbaoks and lost.
Thoy aro not yet calm and serene.
It is right hard on a feller to lose
his man and his money, too. If a
man will bot on an oleotion, I havo
always thought he ought to bot
againBt his desires, and then if ho
wins ho has got his monoy, and if he
loses ho has got his man, and so comes
down easy.
Woll, it did look Uko tho old|
doctor had everything in a swing
around boro and all along the rail
road for 180 miles. Just think of a
Congressional Distriot 180 milos
long, and a groat railroad splitting it
in two, and sixteen towns along tho
lino, and tho oity of Romo r?d bod
besides, and almost everybody hoi
loving for Felton. "Ho is bound to
win," said his friends, "tho devil
can't boat him," and BO they staked
their pocketbooks until thoy wore
empty, and thoy aro empty still.
But theso farmers-"thoBO Alli
ancomon"-they made no noise, they
kioked up no dust, thoy waited until
they could soo the whites of tho ene
mies' oycB, and then thoy fired all
along the line. The woods woro full
of thom. Whore did thoy all como
from ? It rt, minded mo of tho old
times when J>rj Miller usod to run
against Lunik u in this same Distriot.
Thoy stumped it together, and had
big barbeouos, and tho sovereigns
oamo out by tho thousand and cat
the meat and drank tho eloquence,
for Dr. Miller had ns muoh reputa
tion thou as Dr.v Felton has got now,
and ho was called the Dcmosthcncso
of, tho mountains. Lumkin was a
big, bcofy, thick-tongued man and
couldn't olocuto vory muoh, but ho
was a Democrat, while Dr. Millor
was a Whig. Ho made Lumkin siok
on every stump-so siok that some
times when ho had tho conclusion he
wouldon't tako it, and tho boys all
shouted for Millor, and totod him
around liko tho old Virginians used
to toto Patrick Henry. Good gra
cious, what a rackot thoy made, but
wbon election day carno tho wool
hats oamo slipping out from their log
cabins and hollow logs, and from
under tho clay roots and other hiding
places, and just everlastingly snowed
tho doctor under. I hadn't forgot
ton those memorable campaigns, and
hence I didn't bank my faith in a
sanguinary manner upon Dr. F elton's
success. I kopt ono oar opon to hoar
something drop, and it dropped. But
wo can all laugh and rejoice now,
for there ni'o bigger things than tho
Seventh District. Tho nation is safe,
and that is victory onough to satisfy
anybody. Wo did think that we
were just obliged to have Dr. Folton
in Congress to fight tho imponding
battlo, and lead tho forces and elec
trify thc Domooraoy, and swing his
Damascus bindo and put in his hnl
loluia licks and flavo tho nation, but
tho nows of our victories has como
ovor us Uko tho sounds of many
waters, and hopo has rovived and
freedom has quit shrieking, and now
maybo we can got along without tho
doctor. Maybo we can. I expcot
tho old man Eloquent has fought
his last fight, and ho fought it nobly.
Ho fought to flavo tho pUro Demo
cracy, but maybo it is not to bo
saved. I seo that Mr. Gorman, ono
of tho $i??iance leadors, says that
Domooraoy ib "ead and- Republican
ism ?B dead and tho peoplo's party
is going to run tho machino. Col.
Folk Baid that long ago, and BO did
Livingstone, but it was all smothered
until after tho elections. It will
como out now, and it ought to.
Thoro aro as many Republicans in tho
Alliance up North and Northwest ns
thoro aro Democrats, and thoy arc
obliged to havo a new name. Mr.
Gorman is right, and if tho new
party will do right that ?B ?ll WO
want. But right now, when tho
Domocracy has won theso signal vic-1
tories, wo think tho Southern Alli
ance ought to fall into lino and lot
tho good old dog wag his tail a littlo
while longer.
But I reckon wo will all stand asido
and lot tho farmers havo their own
way. Fighting them don't seem to
do any good.
It is like Col. Patterson, of North
Alabama, who, at his first battlo with
the Yankees, was ordored to tako hi
regiment and charge ? battery that
was away ovor on a hill and was
throwing an oooasional shell down
in tho valley. "Boys," said ho, "you
must shoot a ohargin', and ohargo a
shootin', and we'll get 'om." And
thoy did, but when they got within
about a quartor of a milo tho battery
suddenly turned l?oso a terrific volloy
of grape and cannister upon thom,
whioh demoralized tho Colonel and
ho waived his sword and shouted :
"Boys, quit shootin' ot 'om-quit
stootin', I say, for it just makes 'om
madder."
Wo will jUwt quit shooting at tho
farmers, and if thoy oan got the sub
Treasury and r.un it, lot thom do it.
If they oan't, then lot thom got
something bottor. Lot us all wait
and soo. If tho good old Domooratic
party has got to die, lot thora kill it.
Our Georgia formers oro not in any
desperate condition and will do noth
ing rash or unreasonable. They aro
bottor off than they wove a yoar
ago. Tho tax returns and the oan
coled mortgages prove that. The
farmers of Bartow wore nover in so
prosperous a condition. Just con
trast thom with tho farmers of Kan
sas, whore, out of 76,000 farms,
69,000 aro under mortgag?. Just
think of that. And 26,000 of theso
mortgages have boen foreclosed and
tho formers who once owned thom
aro tenants at will, liable to be turned
out at any day. What ia the matter
thoro ? If tho laws aro oppressive,
why don't tho samo laws bring ruin
hore, too? Thoro is not but ono
farm in twenty-four that has a mort
gage upon it now in Bartow county.
What is tho cause of this great and
alarming difference between the
farming interests of tho North and
South ? Why is it that Maine and
Now Hampshire and Vormont have
boon partially abandoned by the far
mers ? Why is it that so many of the
farms in Now York and Illinois and
Kansas and Missouri aro under
mortgage? I wish that wo did
know. If it is tho laws, please let
us know what laws.
And this reminds mo of what 1
havo just road in tho Andover Jievieu
for Novombor. It is tho organ ol
tho Now England orthodoxy. It ii
now lamenting tho dcoay of roligioiu
interest among tho forming popula
tion of tho North. Dr. Dunning
says that thoro aro ninety-fivo towra
in Maine whoro no roligious service*
aro hold, and there aro moro countrj
villages in Illinois without tho Gos
pol than in any other Stato in th<
Union. Just think of ;hat I Th<
groat Stato of Illinois that has tw<
counties that make more grain thai
all Georgia. This great State tba
stands fifth in the scale of education
and fortieth in tho grado of Chris
tian religion. What do you soy t<
this, you advocates for education
Education regardless of moral train
ing. Dr. Dunning says that tin
Presbyterians havo 1,200 ohurchc
without pastors and tho Baptisti
havo over 10,000 ! Nearly all o
these vacant churches ore in th
country towns, whore farming is th
principal occupation of tho people
Thoy once had pastors or roligiou
services, but not now. Tho numbo
of educated men in tho Northen
pulpits is stoadily decreasing am
tho young men who are graduatinj
in tho theological seminaries ar
?coking other callings because thor
are no inviting fiolds for thom t
work in. Tho city churches are ful
and tho country churches will nc
pay enough to keep body and soi
togothor.
Tho fact is that farmers whos
homos aro undor mortgage don't tak
much stook in preachers or prenol
ing. Nothing bows a man down lik
debt-a debt that he knows ho cai
not pay. The boat index of tl
prospority and tho morality of
cev .unity is tho standing of thc
prcachors. If thc people arc doh
well they havo got proachors, ai
thoy pay thom, and they fix up thc
churches and tako a pride in thci
Poor people, poor pay; poor pn
poor preaoh, and boneo tho youl
mon who want to preach aro discon
aged.
But, thank thc good Lord for 1
mercies, this is not tho case at t
South. Our small towns arc gel
rally supplied. You oan hardly fii
ono that does not have preaoh ing

[From tho Now York Ilorald.]
? WASHINGTON, Novombor 10.-Tho
spectre of tho Farmors' AUiauoo
overshadows all other political con
siderations here. Clover politicians
estimate tho voto polled by that
organization in tho recent election at
not lesa than 2,600,000. Tho Alli
ance pooplo thomselvos aro saying I
nothing that can bo construed as an
indication of their future purposes.
The expectation ?B that their party
will iiioreaso so rapidly during tho j
next two yoars that thoir voting
strength in 1892 will not fall much,
if any, short of 6,000,000. In that
ovont they will undoubtedly placo a j
Presidential tiokot in tho field, with
a moral cortainty of carrying half a
dozon Southern and Western States.
Already thoy aro claiming all tho
agricultural States in '02.
This is, of course, an exaggerated
and ovor sanguino view of tho situa
tion, growing out of thoir rooontl
success, but they have a reasonable
probability of carrying North Caro
lina, South Carolina, South Dakota,
Kansas, Nebraska and Minnesota. ?
am told by their leaders hero that
not only will thoy continuo to
dovelop strength in tho States where
thoy havo already shown unexpected
power, but that Ohio, Pennsylvania,
Now York, Now Jersoy and Massa
chusetts offer thom an equally pro
mising field. Tho work of orgauiz
ing will go on rapidly in these States
from this time, with tho possibility of
bringing ono or moro of them also
under thoir dominion.
WIM. FU SK "WITH NO OTU KU 1?AKTY
It is obvious to any student of
politioal affairs that the Alliance
people aro "fooling thoir oats," as
thoy figuratively put it. Thoy organ
izod originally for mutual b .ifit,
but thoy havo drifted into politics
almost imperceptibly from tho Btart,
and their manifest purpose now is to
?oouro control of tho country, or at
least develop such stronght ns will
onablo thom to hold tho balanco of
power between tho two groat partios
It is not thoir intention to consol!
dato with oithor. Thoir loading mon
toll mo they will welcome any mnn
or sot of mon who may choose to
onter thoir ranks, but thoy can only bo
admitted by renouncing forovor their
former political affiliations. It is
only as a diBtinot organization with
distinct aims and purposes that thoy
can hopo to win, and from this
course they will not swerve a hairs
breadth.
The Alliance people aro claiming
fifty-five votes in tho noxt House
Of this number forty aro Btraightout
Alliance Representatives and fifteen
others have committed themselves
in writing to tho moasuros advocated
by thom. Tho moro important of
these moasuros aro tho f roo silver coin
ago and sub-Treasury bills. They will
not'stop, thoy say, until thoy accom
plisb tho passage of both. Judging
from thoir conversation thoy oxpcot
to do this beforo tho close of tho 62d
Congress.
Ol'POSKl) TO SUCTIONAM8M.
Thoro is one tenet of their politi
cal faith which fair minded men
without rogard to other considera
tioiiB, will cheerfully endorso. They
aro opposed to sectionalism and to
tho statesmen who support suoh doc
trinca. They tell mo seriously that
their principal opposition to Senator
Ingalls arises from his malevolent
and ropoatcd offorts to widen tho
breach between thc North and tho
South. His other sins they could
forgivo, but this thoy rogard as
unpardonable. I asked thom what,
ii that case, they proposed doing
with Senators Hoar and Chandler.
They replied that a? noon as the
organization became stronger in
MnatinnliiianHg or\A "Wow ITo?r?T?ohb,/>
thcBO gontlemen should bo immedi
ately turned down, unless thoir
"brigadier Boalping" tactics, ns thoy
torm thom, are abandoned.
Tho General Council of the Alli
ance will hold its annual meeting at
Ocala, Fla., Dccombor 2 next. About
two hundred and fifty delegates and
fifteen hundred other leading mem
bers of the Alliance will bo in attend
ance. Tho Conference will bo an
important one, and beforo its close
tho aims and purposot. of tho Alli
ance for tho futuro will no doubt bo
better understood.
Tho youngest man in tho noxt
Congress will not como from Massa
chusetts, us is commonly bu?ic?, but
from tho 5th Texas District, whoro a

Tho excitement in Wall Streot, if

hr>ye an injurious influence upon all
linos of business in all sections of

Destruction of American Forests?
At a recont mooting in Merlin of
tho Geographical Society, Chief For
est Mastor Kessler called attontion
to tito extravagant waste ot ti?nbcv*
in tho United States, Among othor
interesting dotails Mr. Kessler ?poko
of tho tremendous destruction of
forests in tho United States during
recent decades of yoars. Quoting
from tho tenth census, he stated t'iat
in 1880 the 26,708 saw. mills then in ?
oporation convorted $120,000,000
worth of raw timber stock into va
rious kinds of lumber, and ho as
sorted that at tho samo rate thoro
would bo no good sized timber loft in
forty yoar.8. Ho Bpoko of thc enor
mous wasto of wood through forest
fires, which aie tho result, for the
most part, of carelessness or a desire
to clear land for cultivation, and de
clared that tho planting Of now for
esta, which has of Jato yoars received
some attontion in tho Enstorn States,
cannot begin to offsot the wasto of
forests. He said that thoro is
every reason to fear that Amorica
will soon bo a country Impoverished
for trco property. Mr. Kenslor mado
tho striking comparison that, wbile
tho United States bad but ll per
cent of its aroa coycrcd by forests,
tho ompire of Gormany has 26 per .
cont of its ontiro area so oovorcd.
Mr. Kcsslor said that tho reckless
destruction of forest treo.i in Amerioa
andqtho indifference manifested by
Amoricans in the restoration of for
ests is a raonooo, not alono to^tho
wealth of the nation, but throat^
serious dotorioration both to olimalk
conditions and thc fertility of tho
soil.
