The writer was on the platform com mittee of the new party when an effort was made to include a plank striking at the appropriatoin for our schools, which would throw us back twenty years. He, in common with another member threatened to carry the fight on the floor of the convention, and thus succeeded to keep it off of the plat form. The main instigator of that proposed criem was an editor from Blue Hill, Neb. This man vowed he would renew his fight next July. The point and purpose of this letter is to express my appreciation for the atti tude both local papcr.5 take on the school question. Alliance ought to be proud of its editors in this respect.
