Indianapolis, Nov. 10. A new and en
tirely nnnpeclea Uilli-ulty was aevrl-
oped Wedntsiny in the Farmers AJlj- 1
ance when the details of a secret meeting
which was held sometime between mid
night and morning reached the delegates
in attendance. Under the constitution ot
the Alliance the traveling expenses of
delegates to Ju l from the place of meet
ing and boiel bills during the convention
are to be paid out o" the treasury of the
supreme council. At a conference of the
leaders Tuesday night the report of the
freasurer was submitted in advance of i s
presentation to the council and the d s
covery was made that there is not enough
money in the treasury to defray the ex
penses of the meeting.
Why the Cash ts Scarce.
The membership has decreased consid
erably during the year, and, as many of
the paying members have dropped out, all
of tbe Alliances are short in payment of
Xhe funds charged against them and the
total deficiency amounts, it is said, to sev
eral thousand dollars. Tbe falling off of
membership in the Dorthwest is said to
be fully 50 per cent. When this condition
' was made apparent a motion was offe ed
to cut the delegations in two, as this
would leave the supreme council under
obligations to meet but one-half of the ex
pense which would otherwise be saddled
upon it But there is a big kick against this,
as many of the delegates are a good deal
shorter of funds than the treasurer.
Yesterday's Proceeding, in Brief.
Yesterday's meeting of the council was
devoted to much talk over a few resolu
tions offered, and which it was attempted
to press to adoption. It is said that one
placing the council squarely on tbe xub
treasury platform was adopted. Another
that was urged for immediate adoption
was to repudiate tbe Ocala utterance on
government ownership of railways, etc.,
which provides for said ownership if prac
ticable, aad declare for absolute owner
ship, as demanded by the St. Louis con
vention where tbe K. of L and Alliance
greed on that measure Another was
for an out-and-out Allimce man for
speaker of the national bouse. Both were
sent to committee.
No Cutting towo representation.
An attempt to cut down the representa
tion to fit the fuuds met a vociferous and
robust opposition and was defeated. A
committee was appointed to confer with
the anti-sub-treasury people, and a con
ference was held, but so far as known
now no conclusion was reached. A reso
lution looking to a combine with tbe Peo
ple's party was introduced and went to
committee. The national executive com
mittee of tbe People's party was still in
session behind closed doors, but it devel
oped that tbe terms of a proposition for
union with tbe Alliance bad been agreed
upon and placed in writing.
SOME OUTSIDE PROCEEDINGS.
Editors Strike Ont an Obnoxious Law A
Contest for Officer.
The Reform Press association met in
secret session and spent two hours in a
discussion of the proposition to change
the clause in the constitution requiring
members of the association to support
"all tbe demands of the Alliance." It was
not denied that the change was proposed
in order to make editors or tbe People's
party papers eligible to membership, atd
ia defense of this it was urged that they
were fjghtiug tbe battles of reform and
should not be debarred from membership
simply because they did not indorse every
demand of the Alliance. A vote resulted
In ordering the objectionable clause to be
stricken out. -
The Fight Over Political Action.
It was discovered last night that the na
tional executive committee of tbe Peo
ple's party is advocating tbe election of
certain men as o (Beers for tbe Alliance
and is securing pledges from members in
sympathy with political action to vote for
them. . With this discovery came a suspi
cion that tbe men advocated by tbe com
mittee had agreed to turn the Alliance
into m political organisation, whether tbe
Alliance accepted or rejected the People's
party proposition. Tbe Alliance leaders
re now taking pledges from all possible
or probable candidates that tbey will ig
nore the demands of the People's party, and
will, if elected, conform strictly to what
? ever action the Alliance may take In the
Indorsed Plan bat Not Com paoy.
.. The Alliance business agents held an
'''.mil-day session discussing tbe National
- Union company scandal, which was up in
; the .form of resolution indorsing tbe
- company. After long wrangle tbe agents
declined to indorse the company, but they
indorsed tbe plan upon which tt started
oat, and will try to carry it out with the
capital at the command ot tbe state agen

A VEXICA. LION ABROAD,
It Ran. Afoul of a Itarbed-Wire Fence, to
It. Own Sorrow.
Sax Antonio, Tex., Xv. 19 People in
the Impart a settlnmeat of B?e county are
much alarmed by tbe repeated incursions
of a huge Mexican lion. The animal ap
peared about a week ago. Its first victim
was a 2 ear-old steer, which it killed
with a single blow of its paw and dragged
a quarter cf a mile, until it was stopped
bv a barbeu-wire fence. The ground
where the arcas was f mad showed evi
dences of the desperate attempts of the
lion to carry iis prey over the obstruc
tion. He was compelled . to give it tip
after losing part of his skin ou the prongs
of the wire
Will I: not the Beavt to Heath.
Since turn the lion has killed three
horses at d hns twic; invaded the
settlement. The animal is supposed to
have come from the tangled brakes of tbe
Xeueces riv r bottom lan N. He is what
the Mexieat s call a "mad lion." in that he
i so old ami ferocious aud would not. hes
itate to attack a human being. A regular
hunt will begin for him during the weok.
Fifty men w ili join in it.

might spread ia. a moment through tbe
whole mine. De Montague tore off bis coat
and smothered tbe flame. Just as the fire
was extinguished tbe roof of tbe
rbanfber, loosened by the blast, fell upon
him. He wfs extricated as soon as pos
sible, but only to die in the arms of bis
rescuers. Had the fire spread to the large
bodies ot gas in the mine a terrible ex
plosion would have followed, endangering
tbe lives of over 10U men. De Montague

NEW 1 okk, ov. 19. In a brief after-
dinner talk Tuesday night, Mr. Chauncey
M. Depew said:
We fear the fore? of socialism, we dread the

which men of wea th have to meet or make

presdion in tbe iiiiutioof LU employes that he

Proceedings of the Congress.
Denver, Nov. 19 The new Mining ex
change wut dedicated yesierday, Hon.
Charles F. Libby. of Maine, making the
oration. All tho members
mining cougress took part
ceremonies. Mr. Libby
was "an unexpected pleas
ure and an honor to take part iu the
dedicatory ceremonies of this temple of
mining. He could only speak for himself,
though be appreciated the importance of
tbe right settlement of the silver ques
tion aud in having it recognized in the
markets of the world. He believed the
sentiment of the world was changing. He
read recently of the b't-metallic congress
hsld at Manchester and observed that
opinions were changing. They could not
afford to indulge la hasty deliberation.
While he was not present to suggest any
form of legislation, he believed that silver
had been unjustly treated and that in
time it would obtaiu honorable recogni
tion iu the world.
The CongreHg Listens to Senator Stewart.
The cougress was not called to order
until 2:30 p. n., the presiding officer being
ex-Senator ThIkt. The hall was packed
almost to suffocation, fully 2,5Ht people
being present. Forty-one states and ter
ritories were represented, bssides dele
gates from several European countries.
Mr. . S. McMiliau, of Aspeu, was
elected temporary secretary. The usual
committees were then appointed. There
being no further business before the con
gress for the day. United States Senator
Stewart, of Nevada, was called upon for a
Cad to Sleet Western Pioneers.
Senator Stjwart came forward .and
spoke as follows:
It is a most trrnttf iuir thing to meet an au
dience of western pioneers, who have led tbe
way and established civilization in this hith
erto unknown, far off country. Many hun
dred of millions of people use silver as
money, and have done so during all time f
which there is any record. Only comparative
ly few ever usd gold. The miner has a right
to bejievg tliTt the money which has laKP
sanctioned by the wisdom of all ages, which
was the money of the constitution, would re
main tbe money of the people, and that bis
acquisition of mines would not be disturbed.
What Miner Lost by Demonetisation,
He was disappointed. In the dark, without
the knowledt" of any, silver was demonetized,
and the world deprived of it as a money metal,
since which time the miners of the west have
lost in actual discount on the money they pro
duced $1.YI,U.UV. Not only that, but between
$7u,tm and JSO.UD.UO i of that amount has
gone into the federal treasury ; the government
which was sustained by this gold and silver
has actually made a gain in speculating in sil
ver of over $7;,iJU,0UU: and we are held up by
John Sherman and others as a set f dishonest
men attempting to swindle the yuvernnient.
ALL THE SILVER MEN WANT.'
It Is Only Free Coinace. Which Seems To
Be tbe Difficulty.
All we ask of the government is that they
will coin our silver as they did before 17A -ud
as they are authorized to do. Our civilization
was brought iuto existence by the discovery of
gold and silver in Mexico and South America,
and when this age was placed above all others,
when it had just enough gold and silver in
circulation to keep population and business,
that was the ase of all aires, lint it was the
weakness of man that robbed us and impeded
the progress of civilization.
-io Surplus of Silver.
The senator concluded his speech as fol
lows: They tell us the United States would be
flooded with silver if its coinage were free and
unlimited. From whence would it come?
Where is the surplus of silver? It doesn't ex
ist. They have no more silver in Europe than
they need for exchange among the people. If
the I'nited States should buy silver, all other
nations would follow. Where is this silver
coming from? It cannot come from Europe or
from Asia. Will it come from the mines? It
is doubtful if sufficient could be obtained from
tliera to meet the demand for any considerable
length of time.
Liked the Senator's Remarks.
Senator Stewart's remarks were well
received, and wben be conluded some one
proposed three cheers and a tiger for the
distinguished gentleman. It was given
with a will. It was resolved that 100.000
copies of tbe speech be printed and circu
lated throughout the country. Senator
Stewart was followed by Governor Routt,
of Colorado, who welcomed tbe delegates
to Denver. Letters of regret were read
from prominent men all over the coun
try, aud at 5 p. m. adjournment was taken
for the day.
Arrival of Kastern Capitalists.

York and Boston Tuesday night to attend
