Appeal to Conffrean.
The state Alliance at Dallas makes
the following appeal to Congress:
Dallas, Aug. 29. Hon. Richard
Coke: Dear Sir Each cotton state
has elected two delegates to appear
before congress on Sept. 1 to ask that
a special bill be at once passed re
moving the tariff from jute bagging.
Hon. Evan Jones, president of Texas
state alliance and the nominee of two
independent conventions for governor
of Texas, goes from here.
We believe a courteous reception of
said delegation and prompt action by
congress will greatly neutralize the in
dependent political movement in the
south. Repecfully. E. B. Warren.
