Indiaxapolis, Nov. IS). The uprema
cauncil yesterday refused to bear the pro
test of the aoti-sub-treasary wing of the
Alliance presented by the committee ap
pointed for the purpose at the St. Louis
convention. Aa a consequence a call will
be Issued for another convention asking
all Alliance men not in sympathy with
the sub-treasury, la ml loan, and govern

Tn Council Elects Officers!
Tlit supreme coaticil order for yester
day afteruoou wa the election of officers.
For president. Colonel L. 1. Polk, of
South Carolina, the present incumbent,
was renominated in a laudatory speech by
Mann Paige, of Virginia. ' Xo other nom
inations were made, and lie was then
'ected by a uuanimous vole. '
H. L. iioucks, of South Dakota, was
nominated forvice president by Alonzo
Wardall. BeldenJ of Michigan was also
nominated, but "Ixmcks won. J. F. Tur
nr, of Georgia, bad no opposition for the
ofiiceof secretary, aud was unanimously
re-elected. The office of national lecturer
presented the only contest, of much activ
ity. J. F. Willetts and W. H. Utley were
placed in nominatian, but Willetts was

- The election of officers was ail the busi
ness transacted. It seems to have knocked
out the third party scheme to get posses
sion of the officers, as utley, of Kansas,
was said to be their choice for president.
An incident occurred yesterday which con
firms the Alliance leaders in t be belief that
their state business agents are not true to
the cause, but have formed, or are form
ing, a combination with the Union Cord
age company and the jute trust, to the
detriment of the Alliance. A number of
the agents were seen to enter room 4 at
the Denison hotel, and some of the Alli
ance men sei a watch on the room.
31ale a liseovery.
I When the door was opened to admit a
member they forced their way into the
room and found a meetinz in progress
with M. M. Balch, of New York, in the
chair. The agents gave evidence of great
surprise, and when asked what was in
progress, denied that a meeting was be
ing held. Balch is president of the na
tional Union company, and for years was
connected with the cordage company in a
business capacity. Tne discoveries have
convinced Alliance men that they have
been duped by argents.
MTIll Wi; War on the Company.
The Reform Press association held n
meeting, at which it was determined to
declare and wage open war on the Na
tional Union company and such of the
state agents as are in this alleged corrupt
combination with it. A committee was
appointed to carry the fight before the
supreme council. The following officers
were elected by the associirion: Presi
dent. Dr. McClellin, of Topeka; vice
president, J H. McDowell, of Tennessee;
secretary and treasurer, W. S. Morgan, of
CONFEDERATED INDUSTRIAL UNION.
to Increase tlie per capita tax from 1 to 3
cents. This will increase the rete'pts of
the national treasury .largely, and the
surplus will be used in pushing the F. M.
B. A. in unorganized territory. A resolu
tion was presented indorsing the sub
treasury plank of the Alliance and favora
bly received but not voted upon. AJoiut
committee of the two. organisations is at
work, and it is probable that a iuint plat-'
form will be adopted.

Denver, Xov. au. The mining congress
yesterday, appointed- a resolutions com--tnittee,
which will undoubtedly report
strong free silver sentiments. Tbe event
of the day was ths speech of Senator Wol

fre and unlimited coinage of silver, was
app.anded at every sentence.
lfe stigmatized the demonetization of tilvsa
In 1873 as the roost iniquitous political treach
ery ever perpetrated. "The silver dollar," he
said, "is the dollar of the people, and the gold
that of the aristocracy. The silver dollar Ik an
honest one. The opponents of bimetallism
say it is a 7f-cent dollar, but ship a million to
Liverpool and yon will get an eqnul number of
gold ones less the transportiou expenses."
A Slap at the Presideut. '
In lib conclndinfr remarks he took occasion
to explain his position to his Colorado constit
uent, and he wanted to be understood that in
the future, as in the iiast, no difference w hat
the position of the Republican party or its
chief executive mi(rht be, no matter how much
his actions minht brini; him into disfavor in
the councils of tbe party in tlio senate, or no
difference how nun b it would obi ore tbe kiih
light of presidential patronage from shining
upon him, ha would, befonnd fttrbting to the

shall be held at some point in the central
states. The fixing of .a place of meeting
was considered at length, and it was then
decided to leave tflfe choosing of a city to
Messrs. Terrell, Tanbeneck and Baum-

Six Places to Select Tram. '
This committee was instructed to cbooe
from the following cities: Indianapolis,

and Springfield, Ills. This' committee
will visit each of the cities designated, and
will select the oue that offers to do most
for the meeting. This committee is to

days. The basis of representation decided
upon for tbe meeting of tbe Confederated
Industrial union is two delegates from each
confederated organization, and one dele
gat for each 10,000 votes cast by the Peo
ple's party. This will make a delegation
of about 650 persons. 1 "
What This Action Means.
"This gathering will be the most Im
portant that has ever assembled in tbe
United States,'' said Chairman. Terre'l, of
the executive committee, ' "There will be
eighteen or twenty organizations repre
sented; it will rjot be a meeting for polit
tical purposes. Tbe union ' will declare
Its principles and then the political party
that adopts platform which conforms
most neatly to our declaration of princi
ples will get our votes." This means that
a soon as this confederated calon con

party will call a convention, adopt this
same platform and nominate candidates
upon it. .. .'.
