meeting was lo formulate some
plan Of aggressive campaign. < ?I
course, this report does not pretend
to ho ll vei lmtim nt.uni of 11.n

points are correctly given.
The llr.sl question (aben up v.*ns
whether tho Association should
make an tlggrossivo lighl and pul
canvassers ?.?tho (leid, who would
nt (end alt tho Congressional district
meeting- and make opposition

did not advocate (his. Ile suld that

"get av.a.\ willi them." Mr Tillman
further believed Unit a "combine
existed between all the ina . ont of
beer- lo pool their strength and
stand or fall together."
President Norri- called upon a
number of those present to make
reports upon the following ?|ti. .

About this (imo ( apt Tillman

all he wanted was lo whip out this

Mr. Tillman considered it more
important to elect legislators in

Mr. Tillman *nul Unit Iff Hoy were

Mr Norris 1 bought (bul if Air.
Tillmnn was going lo ennvpsa thc

Mc Tillman then branched oft up
on the Legislature. The fanner
must support no candidate for thc
Legislature unless be ho ill fitVOl
of giving the Agricultural Collogi

?his college would absorb the ngri

Ile did md propose lo give any <d
the reasons for this additional ex
