AXOTK OF WAtttflffCL t
Wovda of Wisdom to Mombora of tho
Tiit? NATIONAL ECONOMIST bas
from timo to timo pointed out side
tracks and other dangore that
seomed to throaton tho growth,
development and success of tho
Farmers Alliance, but there are
othor dangore of which it had never
spoken.. There aro dangerous and
rocky coasts which will bo fatal
to tho good ship if she is hurld up
on'thom. Light houses are erected
to indicate whero dangers are. [I ho
official organ of tho Order would bo
derelict in its duty dit it not point
out the dangerous coast as soon ns
discovered to tho end that the
membership may steer clear of all
harm and guido tho cause to
triumph. Inoro aro two points of
great danger on tho Atlantic coast,
<t?i-?.3> |\A ti ?T(i?n,.nn nn/j
oiusmji ua|/v? JLJ.II..VI ?? min
Henlopon, and all vessels going
North or South must past them;
tho danger, pointe aro alwaye there
and must bo met with courage,
zeal and intelligence. So in tho
Allianco movement there aro two
danger points which if not met
with courage, zeal and intelligence,
threaten a wreck. These two dan
ger points aro liret, placing politi
cians in control of tho oflicos of tho
order ; and, second, compromises.
It is exactly tho proper season
of tho year to devote to tho ptudy
of these questions, bcoauso very
coon tho action will be taken in
tho subordinate bodies whioh
chooses and instructs tho delegates
to tho county bodies, and whatever
is so started in the primary meet
ing permeates through tho county
and State to tho national body next
November. There is no denying
the fact that some practical politi
cians aro eligible to membership
iii tho Allianco, and that quito a
number have become mom hors of
tho order, ....TbQ.vjaAv oftoii'^ako
good" members, Wy
strictly a farmers' organization'tc'is
evident that tho oflicos should bo
lilied with farmers rather than po'li
tichum; and thc tondonoy will be
for tho politician to seek and get
the oflicos because a farmer thor
oughly devoted to tho cause is apt
to think' that some other person
can conduct tho offlice bettor than
he, and conseqently hold back,
and is glad to vote for como other
man, whjle the politician, seeing a
means to a personal ond, puslice
himself forward and secures his
election; this gives him i nil non ce,
and that is an important stock in
trade with a politician. Politicians
as officers do less harm in tho sup
ordinate body than in tho county
and loss harm in tho county than
in tho State, and less harm in the
Stato than in tito national. Thc
reason for this is very plain. Thc
1)eculiar work for tho subordinate
)ody ie porsonal aud so?ial; that
of tho county and ?tato bodies rop
rcsontativo and business co opora
tion; that of tho national oo(h
ropreeonativo an co-operation foi
political purposes. Ir tho thre<
mon who havo hold the Illinoii
legislature at bay so long had boot
any thing but farmers-if they hat
been politicians, thoy would hav<
yielded long sinco. If thonationa
Order over gets into tho hands o
politicians ns officers, shipwrccl
is certain. Next Novombor ofll
cors will bo chosen' who will guid<
tho order through the rooks nm
shoals and quicksands of 1R92
and no grouter calamity could bc
fall tho order than to havo a poli
tician for prosidont or for mombo
of.tho logislativo council or com
mittoo, i r for members of oxocutiv
board, or /or eeoretary, or as odito
of tho official organ. All thoso pc
ni tion o should bo lilied by mon c
integrity and ability, who ar
wholly dovotod to tho cause. But t
insuro this tho work should at one
begin, in tho subordinate oi
gani/.ation, because if thero h
any politicians in tho ordor it wi!
bo very hard to keop thom fror
gotting offices, and if thoy aro deb
gatos they aro apt to soe np han
in elooting politicians to tho higlioi
oflicos. .But perhaps somo mn
object and say that ''any momb<
in good standing who pays his duo
and BO comports himself as to hav
tho coull donoo and respoot of h
brcthorn.?s eligi?lo to any posi
tion Jn?Ho or<lor." It ia not prgcd
that tliaj* bo made ineligible), but
simply ityat it ia bad policy to elect
them, and a9 a proof of tho proposi
tion, snppoeo that nono but poli
ticians vvoro chosen to lill tho of
fices, how long would it bo a farm
ers' organization? Evidently n?t
long. On tho othor hand, with
nothing but farmers chosen to Ml
tho offices it may be expected to
reach its highest dovolopmont and
fulfitll \ia destiny.
"W heh thc coniliot thiokons into
fierce bnttlo, as it muet do in ?892,
or ai some futuro time, tho greatest
danger does not threaten in tho
shape cjf defeat. Thoro is more
dangerj from success than from
defeat. ( Success may intoxicate to
radicaljindiscrotions, whilo defeat
only solidifies and strengthens for
a more; determined effort. Tfli?
affects pf tho educational ?ffort? of
tho order now being so vigorously
pushed should minimise tho danger
to b?\abi*ri?Tl^ uno
cess orpofoat. Tho groat dan sor.
and tin} ono feast comprehended,
is tho danger that attends measures
of compromise. Tho work of years
may b? frittered away in an unwise
compromise. Tho oposition, when
it discovers itself in tho minority,
will not wage a war that cnn end
only in defeat. It will employ the
most stibtlo agencies to gain tho
poi son al friendship of those who
control tho people in this great
movement and convince thom that
half a loaf is botter than no loaf,
and by means of securing tho ends
for whioh they fight. Compromise

but should not bo put in command
