Christianity is 'one of the liays of hu

before a m ire glorious day. They are
contr.buUu to the catastrophe tb y
dread by Sailing into paralysis and des
peration. Uut the go-p! of Christ is u .t
moribun J, and cannot t rs l"-c; as there
is a martyr left to die for it and a defen
sor fi lei ia ti.e sky to care for it. The
real isne is ou'y this: Is modern civili

Third Party Men Capture Theii
LEADERS ALL FAV0B THE SCHEME.
Almost Certain That a State Ticket Will

Convention at Colombo Points from
tbe Platform Which Will Probably Be
Adopted The Per Cent. Loan Scheme
Colcmbcs, O.. May 27. Present indi
cations are tbat the third party men have
captured the convention of tbe Ohio
Farmers Union which met here at V.
o'clock this morning. President Likins,
of the state Alliance (open;; President El
lis, of the state Grange, and other promi
nent leaders are strongly in favor of an
independent movement. While tbe nom
inations for state offices may not be made
at this meeting it is altogether probable
that a convention will be arranged for
that purpose, and that third party tickets
in the counties aud senatorial districts
will be endorsed.
A Fair Representative Body.
This Farmers Union is a fairly repre
sentative organization, aal is composed
of delegates from the open and secret
AUiaace, the Grange, the Tatrons ol
Husbandry, the Mutual Benefit Associa
tion and a.I farmers' societies "having
state or couuty organization. The
present meeting is the outgrowth of a
state convention last fall at which time it
was decided to hold another session be
fore the fall election. The third party
movement will meet with some opposi
tion, but conversation with delegates de
velops a strong sentiment in us favor,
and does not leave much room to doubt
that it will carry.
An Oatllue of the Platform.
A promiueut member ot the open Alli
ance, who is here as a delegate to tbe
union, says that the plattorm to be
adupled w..l not be an indorsement of
that adopted at tbe recent Cincinnati
conveutiou. It wiii be more nearly an
indorsement of the state Alliance plat
form adopted at Gallon. He gives the
substauce ot a platform which he Las
drawn up, and expects to have adopted.
It demands uul.mited coinage of
silver; loans of unlimited amounts to
farmers at 2 per cent, interest aud secured
by mortgage on land; abolishing the na
tional banking system; government con
trol of railroads and telegraphs; further
reduction of fees aud salaries of county offi
cials; prohibiting alien ownership ot land;
equal taxation on ali private property;
election of president, vice president
and United States senators by di
rect vote of the people; reduction of
railroad passenger fires to 2 cents a mile;
the forfeiture of ali unearned land grants;
a graded income tax for corporations and
individuals; a measure to prevent specu
lation in f rm products; the passage of a
law nul.ifymg tue effect of the original
package decision. It is understood that
the platfor u will contaiu no radical ref
erence to the tar fT qaestion.

would return Senator Sherman if they

said he, "I dou't think there is any chance
for Senator Sherman to be elected, no
matter what the farmers do."1 All who
express themselves in tue matter speak
