Dr. D. C. Jvelley was tried by a
committee of the annual conference
just closed at Pulaski for leaving the
ministry to engage .in politics, and
was suspended from all ministerial
work for six months. The confer-;
ence stood 110 for Kelley to 25
against, but the above result was ac
complished by severe and arbitrary
rulings of Bishop Hargrove, who
presided over the meeting. Dr. Kel
ley took an appeal to the general con
ference. There is little doubt that
Dr. Kelley deserved the punishment,
yet the manner in which it was done
is severely condemned by many of
the preachers. The Bishop is being
severely censured by both the press
and his ministerial brethren lor
his arbitrary rulings, and the ap
pointmcnts indicate that the Bishop's
disapproval of Dr. Kelley did not
end with punishing him Kelley's

reduced to weak charges with small
salaries, while those prominent in his
prosecution will be allowed to feast

Ik "Alliance-Man" in this
week's New Era will go back and"
read over again our article of last
week a little more carefully he will
discover that much of his scrawl in
the Era is "irrelevant." The Stan
dard has never declared any war
upon the alliance, save in its degener
ate capacity of a secret political or
ganization. We have specifically
stated in these columns before that
democratic members of the alliance
have a perfect right to exercise their
full strength in the democratic con
ventions, but no secret order of demo
crats, republicans and mugwumps in
general has a right to "fix things" for
a democratic convention in a star
chamber from which many straight
democrats are excluded. We want to
say to the members of the alliance, or
whomever else we may criticise at
any time, that if they feel aggrieved
over any of our incongtuvial remarks,
our columns are open to them for re
ply. We have as little malice in our
nature, we think, as the aveage mor
tal, and it is our earnest purpose to
deal fairly and justly with all men
and all measures. We seek no ad
vantages or privileges we are not
willing others should enjoy. If Alii
ance-Man will hunt up the minutes
of the Warren Couuty alliance, he
will find the boycott resolution
against the Standard, referred to
in our article last week. It was pass
ed at a meeting held at Rock Island
some time last fall, if our memory
serves us right, and we believe a por
tion of the proceedings of the meet
ing were published in the Era the
While manv cood and true demo-
. . v -i
crats of the 'state fire honestly In
doubt as to wherjier it is good de
mocracy to vote for Mr. Buchanan or
not, up to this writing we can still
conscienclously say to them with Mr.
E., "vote the straight ticket," "don't
scratch." : :
While the assertion of Mr. E. that
Buchanan's nomination was secured
fairly, cannot probably be successful
ly controverted, yet it can bo asserted
with equal force that since his nomi
nation Mr. Buchonan has proven un
worthy of the honor, and amenable
to censure, by his failure and refusal
to answer questions courteously put
to him by life-long democrats. The
relevancy of these questions Is a mat
ter of opinion. Thousands of demo
crats in the state are just as firm in
their convictions that they are rele
vant as Mr. Buchanan and his alli
ance followers affect to be that they
are not, and a courteous reply to the
questions is the least that could be
expected of the nominee,
We agree with our correspondent
that the democratic state platform is
the standard by which to test the
democracy of our candidate for gov
ernor, but when put to this test Mr.
Buchanan refuses to stand up to the
rack. The St. Louis platform of the
alliance, and the Tennessee platform
of the democracy are diametrically
opposed to each other. Mr. Buchan
an is pledged to both of them. A
man cannot serve two masters. To
which one will ho pay his allegiance?
While it Is conceded that Mr.
Buchanan stands in the shoes of th
democratic nominee, his nomination
is due entirely to the alliance, and J.
II. McDowell, the president of that
order in the state, claims that Mr.
Buchanan i3 in thorough sympathy
with the alliance and all Us central
ization ideas. A man cannot ,be a
thorough alliancer and a sound dem
ocrat at the same time. What is Mr.
Buchanan? What kind of a white
black bird is he? "
It is censurable and undemocratic
tor any collection of men, whether
they be editors, lawyers, street-corner
politicians, or farmers, to.get togeth
er to Vfix things" for a convention be
hind locked doors, and exclude from
the council other members of the
In jus "now seriously" paragraph
our correspondent reveals the animus
which has characterized the alliance
throughout the entire campaign the
contemptible policy of rule or ruin.
He threatens that for a failure on the
part of democrats to support Buchan
an, the alliance will retaliate by a
slaughter of Snodgrass. Now we
would like to know who this policy
would injure more than the alliance
members. Is it to the interest of the
farmers of this country to perpetuate
republican rule and the robber tariff?
If so then they will not suffer from
such a course. If Mr. Buchanan had
only answered his own catechism
with the same manliness and frank
ness that Snodgrass did, democrats
would not have been punching him
in the short ribs all over the state.
We assert again that we have no
war to make on the alliance as an or
ganization of farmers to promote the
true interests of their calling. The
farmers need organization for this
purpose, and should by all means
maintain it, but as a dark lantern
sideshow to the democratic party
there is no room for it, and its at
tempt to swallow the main circus
with the menagerie, camp equipage,
reserved seats, ticket wagon, and all,
will prove a signal failure. The far
mers had in the alliance what might
have been made a most beneficial
order for them, but they have allow
ed a few such designing demagogues
and chronic office seekers as J. II.
McDowell to capture the organiza
tion and use it for the furtherance of
their pet schemes and morbid ambi
tions, and now if they wish to accom
plish and good for themselves they
will have to purge their own ranks
of such cattle, or else rub out and
start over afresh.
a ghost of a show for election think
for a moment what a spectacle he
would make in the governor's office
with not a single member of his par
ty in either branch of the Legislature
to support him. Dr. Kelley as gov
ernor would have no power whatever
to effect any legislation, but he would
have the power to obstruct and re
tard legislation, and he Is just erratic
and cranky enough to do it from no
other motive than to assert his brief
authority. Dr. Kelley In the gov
ernor's chair would be responsible to
no recognized element of strength, In
the State's political affairs. He would
would be to raise money and turn it
over to him (Clarkson) to be used as
he might see fit. This" role Mr. Bel
den humbly accepted. Then Clark
son began to show Carter that he on
ly regarded him as his clerk, put
there to blindly obey any orders he
gave. ; Carter did not fancy this at
all, consequently there has been a
constant friction between the two
men, which finally ended in a war of
words, and Mr. Carter has gone to
Montana, leaving "boss" Clarkson In
supreme control or the committee.

cratic text book has been so

his own will, which is as changeable
as the pictures in a revolving kaleido
scope. The great Methodist church,
with its taut lines of episcopacy, has
signally failed to keep Dr. Kelley on
a straight course, and it is not reason
able to suppose that the embryonic
elements of a new political party
would have any better success with
But there is no probability what
ever, of Dr. Kelley being elected gov
ernor, and every democrat who
throws his vote from Buchanan to
Kelley simply aids Baxter to the ex
tent of one-half of his vote. No mat
ter how you may theorize about it,
this is the practical result. If the
choice were between Kelley and Bax
ter, we would certainly prefer the
former, and while we do not admire
Mr. Buchanan or the manner in
which he has conducted the canv
paign, he is by long odds preierabie
to either of them. Every vote for
Dr. Kelley is a semi-endorsement of
the force bill and everything else that

The View From My Window.
The following es3ay was written
by ired Matthews and read to a
silent audience at the Viola Normal
School, Oct. 10, 1890. It describes the
view from the window of his board
ing house at Mr. D. II. Wooton's.
The scene from my window is a
picture of beauty with changeable en
gravings': It seems the divine artist,
Nature, had dipped his wonderful
brush into the concentric bands of the
rainbow, and the genial rays of many
morning's sun, drawn from the
rains and dews a suited oil, and made
of the earth an ornamental easel.
It is composed of flowers that are
ever willing to speak sentiments of
joy, regardless of wealth, to a droop
ing soul, of argent fields that yield
the golden grain and of unciferous,
bacciferous and coniferous trees that
buy of the earth and air their food,
and pay back to the earth their
autumn foliage; to the air the odors
of their spring blossoms, and donate
their blossoms to the bees, their
boughs and twigs to the. birds and
their dilicious fruits to man.
The clear summer night comes and
clothes each object within this picture
in a shuiing goal of diamonds with
its dews ; later tho beams of the sun
arrive to frolic with the blooming
rays in the grass.
Now this scene has reached the
zenith of its beauty and the shimmer
ing rays of this dewy dress are the
rich spangles that adorn this nature
There along the portico, grows and
blossoms and bears a rough old grape
vine ; but in spite of its roughness it
will have its beauty ; still it clings to
the mouldering wall as a festoon to

A landscape like an open picture-
book is stretched out along the dex
ter bank of Hickory Creek. First a
field covered with stubble that is
brown and sear ; then a hillside, its
light color is due to the decaying

ripe corn field ; next a gigantic
mountain that is a hank of azure hue.

Mr. Blaine is going to Ohio to
speak in McKlnley's district, but he
goes very much against his will, and
only m deference to the enormous
pressure which was brought to bear
upon him. He Is aware of the ab
surdity of his attempting to convince
the intelligent voters of Ohio that
his reciprocity Idea and Mr. McKin
ley's high protective tariff law mean
one and tho same thing, when he
knows that they are as wide apart
both in theory and practice as are the
North and South poles.
It is now an open secret here that
Mr. Harrison will unload Commis
sioner of Pensions Raum as soon after
the Congressional elections as he pos
sibly can, and there is some talk

and resigning before the election, just
for spite, as it were.
The new tariff law has stampeded
the Treasury department to an unex
pected extent, and the complaints
have only just begun. Treasury offi
cials hope to escape some of the vex
ation and the responsibility which
properly .belongs to them, through
the ridiculous order issued last week,
stating that the decisions made by
the Collectors of Customs would be
final, that is to say, that no matter
what an absurd interpretation some
ignorant or careless collector may
put upon the new law, the Im
porter cannot appeal to the depart
ment. no must either accept it or
go to the expense of carrying it into
the courts. It is claimed by some
good lawyers that the entire tariff
law is void by reason of the fact that
a clause was left out in enrolling the
bill for the President's signature,
Legal complications as well as whole
sale robbery of the people will natu
rally follow this law.
Justice Miller of the Supreme
Court died here yesterday from the
effects of a stroke of paralysis with
which he was stricken last Friday,
and already there is a scramble
among the republicans as to who
shall succeed him. Attorney Gener
al Miller, who is very anxious to be
fixed for life before his brother Ben
retires from the White House, is of
course a candidate, but there are lots
more of 'em coming in on every
train, so as to be here when Mr.
