ORAN0ERTURO, S. C., June 2.
Ever since the thir I party was promul
vtated there has been a certain atout
of curiosity thoughout the state and
elsewhere as to how Dr. J. W. Stokes,
president of' the South Carolina State
Alliance, stood on the matter.
h'llis Ciriosi( v has amountedtoi . anx
lety anld every oneC and a while somC
one of' the state's weekly journals conies
oti with the great question of the hour:
"How does the president of the Alliance
stand on the third party question?"
To satisfy these papers and the public
generally, your correspondent, visited
IIresident Stokes at his oflice yesterday
and asked his views concerimg the
third, or people's party.
Dr. Stokes seemed perfectly willing
for a chat, and what ie had to say I give
".It does seem that our newspaper
friends will get i.ervous every once in a
while, and then they try to make others
nervous an( clamor for somebody's
views on this or that question. I have
f'requently expressed my views upon
cognate questions, ar.4d I have quite re
cently been in print upon the specific
(uestit ii of Alliance relation to the new
party, so that our iliquistors are respon
sible for the repetition.
"First, then. as to the 'action of the
Cincinnati conference.' As we under
stand the proceedings of that body, it
did not (, ect itself into a separate party.
Indeed, one plank inl its declaration of
purposes explicitly setm torth a refusal
to erect a party until the results of cer
tam other conterences to meet inl '12 are
"Still, its avowed purpose'w is to as
,itue distinet party existeice, unless
satisfictory concessioins are made beffore
the campaign of '92 opens.
"Its platform hugs the lines of Alli
U1CC demands very close; :iid bence
good A liance iiien ituist regard it as a
vood la1tformI, to filhIt oi il a separate
light is determiled lipoln next year.
Whetler they elect to fi'ht oin if. or not.
"2. Ag to the attitide of the Southern
Alliance towards the new party,-if' it
become a party. It isassumed that the
fliestion has exclusive reterence to na
tional issues; for why should any new
party be recognized in local an(I state
politics at, tile South? Surely the farmer
has the remedy for local abuses here, it
any exist, in his own hatids. Ile knows
this, nid lie is reasonably (iontent with
his local aflairs; his rincilpal complain ts
relate to a national legislation, and his
demands are addressed to national par
"Once again, then, let us repeat that
the Alliance will never assume any at
titude toward the new party, any more
than it hls or will toward the old par
ties. Its constitution dfoes not admit o
its assunlintg an attitude toward any par
ty whatever; and it would be bad policy
it' the constitution allowed. Its filction
is purely educational. It seeks to ar
ri e at id .rotuulate economi truth;
and then leave the coinscieniec (political
as well as religious) of' the menmbership'
free to express Itself' ini its own way.
"As a matter of' courac, since the
platforun of' the l'propose new paruity con
curs so closely wit,h the conclusIonis ail
iready ieached by the Alliance, its clainms
upon01 the indiv'iidual comiscience of A ili

phorably pirevalenit, the D)emocrat ic

tience, intolerantly attempt to read out

thieir' dogma as to men and measures.
the situatioii will assumei the propor'tions
of' political tragedy.
'"Thlis is no0 mereI alarmist utterance.
An opiinion of existinug 'ondtitions is
asked; and a frank, honest judgment, if
any, sh oul be gi venl. And our (deliber
ate judgment is that if the current intol

and papters fairly represeint the spIrit, that
wd'il dominate the par'ty, the party must
calculate upon losing a goodly number

the Alliance most, bitter'ly because it
wvill not make the tariff the single issue

ent that the ditterenc'e between the
Democratic tariff tax upoii the people as

the llepublicans, as e'xpressedh in the
McKinley bill, is not 1)1opoitionuate to

"They suspect, not without reason, a
stupendous financial wvrong has been
perpetrated upon the prodhucing classes;
and that its perptrators have wrought

knowingly, for theIr own advantage.
When the full enormIty of this wrong,
whereby the wholesale robbery of these
classes has been made posible, filters
through their minds, and ,well-grounded
suspicion becomes conviction, it may
requh-'e all the conservatism of all classes

"It Is manifestly then the duty of a

"It cannot escape attention, that whil
the true Alliance man is imbued wit
the spirit of true democracy, all ot thet
are not wise and prudent. It is conspu
uously true also that many most voci

SIoux CITY Iowa, June 26.-Rain con.
tinued to fall all last night, and is still
e coming down at noon today. The work
of repairing railroadis and telegraph
wires is much delayed in consequence.
,t The great,est destruction by the floods
i was confined to an area of fifty miles In
extent, directly east of this place. Most
of I-.e reports sent out thus far have been
pure conjecture, as the roads are impas
sable and the telegraph wires have been
useless. Communication with Cherokee
has just been opened by the Western
Union, which has one wire working
slowly to Sioux Falls, S 1).
Cherokee was the centre of the storm
and the place where most of the damage
was done. The first authentic news from
that place was received at :3 o'clock this
t afternoon. No lives were lost at that
place. Fifty houses were washed away,
- however, and a great many were shifted
e from their foundations, while every
[ bridge and culvert in the county Is
e washed out. Several miles of the Illi
5 nois Central tracks are gone, and the
t road will be unable to resume operations
for three or four days.
Advices from Correctionville say that
the place is yet under water. At Aure
lia tihe water stood six feet (eep in the
streets yesterday, but is slowly going
a down today. The valley of a small
creek running into the Little Sioux at
Cherokee was the only outlet for the
water during tihe storm, and every house

FIFE, THE EVAN4ELIST, ASSAULTED.
An ExceedinXly DisgracefUl Affair at
Greensboro, N. C.
GREENsBOno, N. 0., June 27.
- Greensboro never saw nor heard of
I such a day of excitement as reigned
here to-day. Business was almost sus
t penled for a while, and the whole city
r is highly indignant. Several nights ago
9 Judge David Schenck, late of the Supe
rior Court bench, a historian of note
2 and President of the Guilford Battle
' Grounds Association, gave a moonlight
party at the Guilford battle ground, in
which Fife, the renowned drummer
- evangeli3t. claims a riotous german
lasted all night. Mr. Fife in his meet
lng here, denounced it as a disgrace to
the soldiers who died on the field, and
as a desecration of sacred soil, lie
also reflected on the name ot Judge
Schenck and family, and declared
that no true Christian would engage in
Yestermay afternoon Judge Schenck
and his three sons called at the room of
AfMr. Fife in the McAdoo 11ouse and de
manded an apology. Mr. Fife replied;
"Look here, you have struck the wrong
fellow," They then left, without vio
lence, but were present at the night
meeting, when the matter was casually
referred to by Mr. Fife.
At the close of the meeting it was
whispered that Mr. Fire would be at
tacked, whereupon Mr. Fife said:
"Friends, hold on a minute; I under
stand that I will be attacked." Many
voices replied: ".hey will have to at
tack us, too." and Mr. Billhorn added,
"And Jesus. too." A hundred men es
corted Mr. Fife to his room, and as
soon as they left him the three young
Schencks came up and attacked Mr.
Fife, in the presence of his wife, and
threatened to kill him. Mrs. Fife ex
claimed: "You are not going to as
sault a man of God in the presence of
ladies?" They replied: "No, not in
the presence of ladies," and retired. Mr.
Fife followed them into the s'.reet. and
approaching the buggy in which Judge
Schenck was sitting, offered him his
hand, to which the judge responded: "I
won't shake hands with any such a
damned scoundrel." Mr. Fife~was then
struck by Dr. Schenck with a loaded
cane and staggered. Dr. Sehenck then
fired a pistol, the bullet whistling un
comfortably close to the evangelist's
Mr. Fife was taken to a drug store
for treatment, and, on returning, on the
arm of Mr. McAdoo, exclaimed: "All
for Jesus, bless God." Several thous
and indignant citizens assembled at
the caJurt house this morning,and after
making several speeches, a committee,
consisting of Judge John A. Gilmer
and others reported resolutions strong
ly condemning Judge Schenck. Sever
al hundred lauies met in the gospel
tent and declared their intention
to stand by the evangelist. Judge
Schenck and sons have been arrested.
Intense excitement prevails, and there
is fear of further trouble.
