Wallace Circus Stars.
11 is diflicul to say In just what de
partment the Great Wuliucc Shows ex
cel) but when it visits Laurens ou
Thursday, Ootober the 10th., our citi
zens can judge for themselves.
Those who are versed in tho business
and ought to know whereof thoyspeak
say that tho riding as seen with the
Wallace Show this year has never been
equaled, much loss excelled. The rid
ing of Mike Kooney and Orrin Hollis
is q reve'atlon to the public. Their
consummate sk>ll and beautiful grace
are always greatly admired. They do
everything on a horse's back that an
m'dlnary acrobat can do on the stage.
They never lalterorlo.se their balance,
but perform feat alter feat in such an
easy manner that their act is one of
the most admired of tho entire pro
gram, What Orrin Hollis and Mike
Rooney cannot do on the back of a gal
loping borco novcr could be done.
Mike Kooney and Orrin IIollls are
second to none. Those champion bare
back riders will be seen with tho Great
Wallace Shows when tho,1 exhibit for
one day only in Laurens on Thursday,
Mass Meeting of Alllaucemeii?])ls?
llltgulshctl Speakers Invited.
At a meeting of Alliancemen it was
resolved to call a mass-meeting of the
Alllanoe and Invite the lions. VV. J.
Talbert und I). F. Eilrd to address
them at Laurens C. II., October 12th
inst. Hon. Tal her t has been heard
from, accepted and will be on hand,
and we are expecting tho acceptance of
Hon. Elird. Brother Alliancemen, we
feel the need of a ro/ival of tho Al
liance. It is not dead. The princi
ples are deeply implanted in all of you
and will for all time remain in von as
long as you livo. Never was then
more necessity for the Allianco to
come to the front and battle for "equal
rights to all men and special privileges
to none." Tho greatest danger to our
country is the unlawful and speedy ac
cumulation of wealth to the poverty
and financial ruin of too masses.
Trusts, combines and corners are en
circling our country and enveloping
our country as never before, taking
from the people unlawful profits and
tariffs, some of them even under law.
High royalties are being paid to the
impoverishing of our people to combin
ed capital. By this procedure farmers
are being driven from (heir homes
into other avocations to seek a living.
What an anomaly. While tho great
trusts arc enlarging their plants in
many industries, declaring larpo divi
dends, and by th<:se means making few
purchasers for farm product, amassing
wealth while the producers are be
coming poorer. The legitimate laws
of supply and demand must prevail and
then we will have nothing to say. Our
calling Is a noblo one- tho betterment
of mankind financially, morally aud
educationally. Wo boliove that tho
groat educational wave that the last
few years has swept over our land goj,
great encouragement and impetus
from the Alliance. Wc would like to
write more, but space in next issue of
the paper is limited, aud will end by
calling on all Alliancemen und sympa
thizers to be on hand Octobor ]2;h
next, and hear our distinguished
R. I). Boyd,
Pres. Laurons Co. Alliance.
