WASHISGTOS, Sept. 23L Inquir at the
aUpoal headquarters of the Farmers. Al
liance shows that there is no troth in the
report that that organization will oppose
the loan to be asked of congress by the
World's fair national commission. N. A.
Dunning, editor of The National Econo
mist, the official organ of the Alliance,
Mid yesterday morning:
"The bill will not be met with the oppo
sition of the Alliance. We have taken
no steps regarding it, and there is nottL
slightest likelihood that we Bhall oppose
the measure. Onr only fear is that the
bill will not be reported by the commit
tee. We sincerely hope that it will be re
ported, because we shall then have an op
portunity for getting our sub-treasury
land loan theories fairly discussed in con
grass. We were unable to do so last ses
sion, but if the fair loan bill comes up
we shall have our chance this time, and it
would be very poor politics on our part
ot to embrace it.
For the Government, Not for Chicago.
"We have never been advocates of the
fair, believing that those who would have
to pay for it would not be able to benefit
by it. But we favor its being held in Chi
cago as the central point for the farmers
who might be able to attend it. And as
for our opposing the bill because of the
Mqust coming from Chicago, that is non
sense. We recognise that the bill is fur
the government, not for Chicago. But
we also recognize that if it is proper for
the government to loan money to a cor
poration, national though that corpoia
tion is, it is also proper for the govern
ment to loan money to the people. Sune
say that the constitution permits such
loans vs this one, but does not permit the
government to loan to the people. Loans
were made to the centennial an 1 tot tie
New Orleans fair.
An Opportunity Wanted.
"To the latter place because the govern
ment desired to give the people an oppor
tunity to exhibit their coiton. Very well.
But if that is coostitntioual why is it not
eonstitmioual to loan money to the peo
ple to permit them to raise cotton to ex
hibit No, you can say that we do not
oppose the loan. To show our belief in it
mm may vote for it; that I can't say of
Bcally, for the reason that no official ac
tion been taken upon it, but in voting for
It we should simply testify to our belief
in the principle of the government loan
ing money upon security for the benefit
Df the people. And we only want the op
portunity which the introduction of the
World's fair bill will give to us to obtaiu
a hearing for our claims."

WASHINGTON, Sept. 2i Preparations

pletion, and all indications point to the
greatest gathering of religious brain
force ever seen in this or any other

in the discussion of various topics, such
as "The Influence of Modern Scientific
Progress on Religious Thought" '-Ecumenical
Methodism." "the Christian Church."
"University Education," 'Romanism,"

other religioui problems by the foremost

Guthrie for the purpose of entering the

retary has directed the governor to see

THE DISTURBANCE IN MEXICO.
t'onsnl General Guenther Not Alarmed
at the Situation.
Chicago, Sept. 21. Richard Guenther,
tinsul general to Mexico, reached the
G rand Pacific yesterday morning on his
a ay from his Wisconsin home to
the capital of onr sister republic to the
south of us. Mr. Guenther has been en
joying a vacation at his home in Osbkosh.
He returns to Mexica without any fears
tlat the government of President Diss
wJl be overthrown. "In my opinion the
present disturbance in Mexico is indica
tive of nothing more serious than the up
rising of a small faction thet is always
dissatisfied, said Mr. Guenther, "and this
so-called revolution will be short-lived.
Times Have Changed.
It used to be in the days when the rail
roads and telegraph were not established
ml communication from one state to an
otler was difficult that a revolution could
gain some momentum before the govern
ment was aware of it and took measures
to suppress it. Now, however, the gov
ernment is able to cope with any uprising
as soon as it is started, and that is why I
say that a revolution in Mexico will not
be t uccessf uL Aside from this there is
no necessity for any uprising. President
Diaz has made a good executive and the
country is prosperous and the people are

thousands of men and women had gath

The streets, though very wide, failed to

feet of space 'or tbe pageant The police
were powerless,' it being impossible to
keep the people in check. Five miles of
solid human bodies, tbe marching Odd

On the Keviettiiig Stand.
As tbevaiious divisions and cantons
marched, tbe men yelled, tbe women
shook their handkerchiefs and the chil
dren were wild in their ecstacy. Such
scenes are not often witnessed and the
enthusiasm of the spectators was evidence
of tlieir appreciation, and they were not
enthusiastic without reason. The review
ing stand was occupied by Deputy Grand
Sir Campliell and staff, Lieutenant-General
John C. Underwood and staff, Mrs.
Rea, of the degree of Rebekah: Governor
Francis and various dignitaries. The
passiug cantons saluted the reviewing
officials and marching past, turned aside

ever, doing the most laughing. Rev. Mr.
Jewell read his address and was elaborate
in his welcome to tbe visitors. Dr. C. T.

Loudon, Can., in response to tbe wel
coming speeches, accepted on be-half of the
