Or the Kansas Alliance Wilt Disband,
fays Frank McGrath.
Kansas Citv, Mo., June 13. Just before
the meeting of the Cincinnati convention
where the new party was born, Frank Mc
Grath, president of the Farmers' Alliance
of Kansas, said that unless the southern
Alliances came into the movement for a
new party he would advise his ub-Alliances
to withdraw from the movement
and go back to their old party affiliations,
as he thought the hole scheme was an ef
fort to benefit the Democratic party, and
use the Alliance as a tool.
The Disintegration liegun.
Just after the Cincinnati meeting Mc
Grath started out on a still hunt among
the couutry Alliances and the result is
shown in the fact that Saturday the Alli
ianoe of Cloud county passed a set of rescv
tions by which they determined to with
draw from the third party and to stick to
their old affiliations. This movement it
spreading, and it is officially stilted that
several other county Alliances will follow
suit within a week.
