Big Alliance Meeting at Silver.
SI~vsn, Oct. .-For dt least a month pre-]
parations were on foot to induce the plant
ers to arrange so that some ccntral point, on t
he C. S. & N. R. Ri., might be named for*
recting a warehouse to store cotton. That
atter was settled to-day. The very liil-eral
ffer of Mr. J. J. Ragin, soliciting agentfo
he railroad, induced the different Alliances
o consummate th'at end. A large number
f citizens, as well as Alliance men, met te- I
ether at Silver, and with the aid and smiles

nteresting occasions it has been our happy
ot to witness. The day was one of unusua:
appy sunshine, after so much cloudy and
rainy wveather. A more lovely sun had
:ever risen. A more social coming together
was never enjoyed, a picnic and dinner of
he rarest kind. We regretted to learn of so
much misunderstanding, nevertheless it.
was a success. It makes us feel proud that 1
ur people fully intend to maintain the
losest unity, and make the Alliance what
t was designed to be.

ames E. Davis elected chairman. Tr. A..

hair Mr. Davis requested the Hon. James
E. Tindal to state the object of the meeting. I.
Mir. Tindal said this pienic was gotten up I
by the Calvary Alliance, that some mutudl
greement might be made with other Alli
aces to erect a warehouse at Silver. Hie
made due apologies for the absence of Mr'.f
Stackhouse; also, for President Stokes, ofs
teState Alliance, who expected to be pres
nt. He made one of his most elegant
Mr. Rtagin, who represented tihe railroad,
stated that they would give receipts for and
store cotton, and hold said cotton as long as
he people so desired.
Mr. Keels, of Manning, endorsed Mr.
indal's speech in full. He believed such a
ourse adopted, to build a warehouse, would
ring lasting benefits to the planter.
Mr. B. R. Gibson fully concurred, also, in
he proposed railroad storage till a wvare
ouse could be built.
Mr. J. H. Mahoney made a clear and I
orcible argument against the loss of weights e
n cotton, wvhich warranted every one pires
nt to look his interest squarely in the fae.
Mr. H. S. Briggs propo. ed a very legiti-.
nate plan to pay out all mone~ys due thea
erchant on liens, when the cotton was sold 1
t the warehouse.
