to go to trial provided that the would re

committee jou lofei led to
Xo sir we will not go before any
whitewashing committee we will submit
notlunc to a trial except before the consti
tutional authorities of the Alliance
Well weie you ordeicd out of the Alli

Evan lnnes repeated and emphasized

out
Who introduced the first resolution to
oust ou anti suhtreisurv fellows
K l imb was the hrst man 1 saw on
the floor foi the resolution and hence I con
sider that he was the mtiodiuei
What could have been Ins object in in
troducing such icsolution as he is a leader
in the Peoples parti and the Alliance is u
ionpolitical organization
that is erj plain Yon see the Peo
ples party met the daj before the Alliance
met and organized whiih shows en
plainly that they are trwng to uo the
Alliance as a cats paw for their patty
Hows that
By shaping their platform after the
Alliance demands so tlicv can iinulate
thoirliteratuie thiiiugh the Alliume
Well do ou think it mil work
Xo sn the lunl and lite of the Alliance
aietrue Democrats and onli misled by the
third parti ites in the Alliance to suppoit
thesubticasuri plan
Did ion not suj a lew dajs ago that the
rank and tile ofthe Alliame would not fol
low the Demoeiats
Xo sir I said that the rank and file of
the sub treasury wing would not measure
their Dejnoeraci by the subtreusuri plan
but would test or study the plan from its
Democracy
Aiea majority of the rank and file of
tho Alliance subtieasuiy followers
Xo sir
Well why dont jou fellows organize
jour foues and make jour light
We haieeientiling leadj to work well
just as soon as we use even effort in urg
ing them to go back to the original pur
poses of the Alliance
In case tliej dont back then what
A new Alliance or rather the incor
ruptible part will be organised from na
tional to subordinate lodges and among
our chief mms will be to suppress the class
prejudices fostered by the office seekers
who belong to tho Alliance to have the
persons who follow the plow to be the
pullors and the members of other profes
sions to be pushers
What is the cause of so much prejudice
about the Fort Woith antisubtreasury
meeting
Well jou see tho Waco meeting was
culled bj two classes one that desired a
whitewashing the other that desired an
expression of the Alliance so thej would
know how to shape the platform of the Peo
ples purtj in Tetus and tho Fort Worth
meeting was called by Democrats so what
ei er is legal or illegal of the one is legal or
illegal of the other Whoever kicks at tho
Fort Worth meeting and indorses the Waco
meeting is either a third partj man or he
has been mismfonned about them Tho
Waco meeting made the Fort Worth meet
ing a necessity beeause every member of
the Alliance is privileged to retain his polit
ical and religious rights to everything

What decision did jou come to about
the Peoples party in Texas
Oh it will out no figure at all Some of
their committeemen refused to serve It
is better for the Democracy because it will

Coixirnu S C Aug 21 A scheme
the main object of which is to save the
present crop of cotton from being sacrificed
hus been formulated in this citj and is to
be at once pushed through all the cotton
growing districts The scheme was origiu
rted by a farmer E M Stoebes and will
be put into active operation bj the Alliance
which has already approved it The
scheme proposes that trust companies with
a capital from 20000 to J30000 each shall
be formed in every countj in the cotton
belt These companies shall receive as
subscriptions onethird of the cottton crop
of the members So firmly are these trust
companies to be bound that the cotton thus
placed in their trust can positively not be
touched for a jear At the expiration of
that time the companies will be dissolved
and the cotton held in trust be returned to
its owner By this means it is calculated
to hold the cotton supply for this jear down
to about C500000 bales and consequentlj
bring the price up to about 10c per pound
instead of 6c as the present averae
