New Yoi:k, June 8.?Col. L. L. ('oik,
the president of the Alliance, has furnished
for publication the following
statement of his views of the political
situation and of the Third Party movement.
He speaks, he says, not for the

"The friends of reform throughout
the country can have no quarrel with
the Cincinnati Conference. Its action
was a surprise to the public generally.
There was a general apprehension in
the public mind that a body so heterogeneous
in its character and representing
so many phases of political thought
,-v.. 1,Q oa hcirniArtinnc rvr fiAJTlA

geneous in its action.
"The partisan press especially was
profuse in dire prediction in this direction,
but the result was a disappointment
and, as I said, a surprise to the
public, for never m a deliberative body
of its magnitude in this country did
more thorough harmony aDd accord
prevail. Some of the most prominent
considerations that will commend the
conference to the friends of reform are,
first, the frank, manly and unequivocal
expressions of its principles and purposes.
"There is no dodging or evasion in its
platform; there is no political twaddle,
sentimentalism or sectionalism. It is
fMear and unmistakable: it does
not mean one thins for the South and
another for the North; it deals only
with great vital issues?issues evolved
by systematic injustice and oppression?not
such as are manufactured by
expert politicians for the temporary
V, puposes of a political campaign, but
"< issues which involve equality of rights
and those great principles of justice on
which our'Government is founded.
THE MOVEMENT PERMANENT.
"This movement unquestionably embraces
the essential elements of perma-'
nencv. It is based on a deep-seated
conviction in the public mind of the
absolute necessity for great and important
reforms, especially as affecting
our industrial and economic development,
and -which are imperatively demanded
by our advancing civilization.
"There are strong indications that a
permanent political party is to be established
by the great masses of the
people, which, while preserving the
fundamental principles of free government,
will be marked by a policy sutliciently
progressive and aggressive to
meet the constantly enlarging demands
of the country's rapid growth, and that
will strive torestore and preserve those
conditions and relations between the
great interests of the country which are
positively essential to our progress if,
not to our existence as a nation.
"The farmers of the South, in common
with the farmers of the Xorth,
East and West, are common sufferers
from a common evil, to wit: Vicious,
partial and discriminating legislation,
which robs the many to enrich the few,
and which has dwarfed unjustly the
rights of the citizen and magnified unduly
the rights of the dollar. All thinking
men must see that a readjustment
of political elements along new lines is
inevitable and on which will be arrayed
y on the one side the corporate and
/ money power of the East, and on the
other'the people of the great agricultural
sections of the North, West and
South.
"The thinking men of the South see
and realize this. They have suffered
and lost enough through sectional agitation
and division. They feel and be

can farmer is 111 a cordial, earnest, hon
est, determined consolidated effort
against the forces which have conspired
against him. They feel tint the hour
has come to strike bauds with their
brethren in one great effort to fraternize
and reunite the people of the North
and South, and thus create a new and
mighty power that will rescue the
country from impending peril. They
believe that a conriict between tue
money power and the people is inevitable,
that it will be the most gigantic
struggle of all history, and I misjudge
them if thev shall falter when the issue
is made up.
"If the opposition to the Reform
movement by the two old political parties
shall be persisted in, the issue may
be precipitated and the lines drawn at
the meeting to be held in February,
1892. Aly opinion is that you will probably
see every Congress district in the
United States represented at that meeting."
HOW 'JIIE ALLIANCE GROWS.
It is said at President Tolk's otlice in
Washington, that, during this past
month the growth in membership of
the Alliance has been more rapid than
could be kept track cf.
The following summary of recent reports
from various States is given out:
Oklahoma ? Several Sub - Alliances
have been organized, v/ith a net increase
of 400 members.
Mississippi?For some time past a hot
war has been waged against the Alliance
in this State, and it is getting hotterevery
day; but since December 1 the
net increase in membership has been
oyer 1,000.

lu view of thel'act that an article appeared
in this morning's paper that the
convicts en route from the rail road
camp to Columbia were cruelly treated,
etc, we, at our meeting today, have investigated
the matter and examined
the couvic's themselves who landed
here last night and we lind that the
charges were altogether unfounded.
The convicts show to their having good
treatment and have been well fed.
We call attention also to the statement
of Cautain Wheeler, corroborated
by certilicate of guards, published today,
together with report of Captain
Sligh.
We desire further to state that we
have examined the books and accounts
of the institution generally, and we are
perfectly satisfied with the management
of the superintendent so far.

regard to this matter of convicts being

In regard to the convict that clied on
the road from Tee Dee to Darlington I
wish to say that, under the circumstances,
being unable to stop to attend to it
myself, i turned him over to an old reliable
colored man to be buried. lie
agreed to make a plain coffin or box, in
which to bury him. ol' course receiving
a just compensation for the same. 1,
therefore, pronounce the st atement that
be was tuned in a blanket false, according1
to the agreement made for his burial:
and i can truthfully say that it was
not from a lack of attention that lie
died, for he had been in the hospital
under a physician for about five weeks,
I A nf An ol 1 \rV*ilo

and the paralytic has been in the hospital
for about two months.
Now as to their clothing. They were
clad very comfortably, about as well as
could be expected of a parcel of hands
who had been at work on a rail road.
The majority of them were barefooted,
but 1 thought it best to wait until igoi
th jm to the penitentiary to give them
shoe's, as it wassuch a short time before
'we e.-pected to be there.
Thtu, too, about there being at the
point of starvation. When L left the
camp with them I had a sufficient quantity
of rations cooked to last them (without
any unnecessary delay) till they
could get to Columbia; but, owing to a
failure to make connection at Sumter,
as we fully expected to do, according to
the arrangements previously madf* with
the rail road authorities to'that eiliect,
ire ware* lt.fr a-it.hnnf. anvthinj?- to eat
1 he Atlantic Coast Line train having
pulled out just as the Charleston, Sumter
& Northern rolled up, it being about
seven or eight hundred yards from the
crossing oi' the Charleston, Sumter &
Northern, thus delaying our arrival at
Columbia from Sumter till lOo'clock.
I can vouch tor their treatment at the
camps, that they have all the while been
well clothed, well fed and well treated
in general, and that they have received
no unnecessary abuse, and also that we
have worked no sick hands, all of them
having been during their sickness in
the hospital, where they have received
all necessary attention.

This duty I have faithfully

no complaint has been made as to bad

Kemarkitble Cases.
Kansas City, Mo , June 10.?The
fourth of the Vandevere family at
Atchi$0D, Kan., has been taken with
hydrophobia. The father was stricken
yesterday and his death is momentarily
expected. One member ot the family
di id .Saturday and two others, it seems,
cannot recover. The cases are the most
remarkable ever heard of in the West.
There are six brothers and one sister in
the family and there is considerable apprehension
lest more of them should be
stricken. J)r. Kin? says that there is
no doubt that the disease was transmitted
to the boys whrn they skinned an
effected calf nine years ago. Thomas
Vandevere is resting easy. The condition
of his mind has fairly changed
since yesterday morning. lie is not
quite convinced that he will live. When
l)r. King called on him he was engaged
in writing a letter of consolation to his
old boy, h ?s not taken a particle of
nourishment since he was attacked by
rabies Saturday. The peculiarity ol the
strange disease h in centering at the
| muscles of the tliroat, completely prei
venting him from swallowing. The
{ sight of anything nourishing or of anyj
thing that suggests swallowing throws
i him into the mosthorrible convulsions.

Xiw Youk, June 0.?The Evening
Sunsajs: For several days past there
has been an animated trade in silver
bullion certificates upon the Stock Exchange.
The price, however, has ruled
steadily around ?3 cents per ounce and
has seemed, in Wall street parlance, to
have b<en pegged at that figure.
It was rumored in Wall street this
morning (hat a large French syndicate
had been for.ned topurenaseims euuic
stock of i'.ver. The syndicate, it is
said was represented in this country by
the banking house of Heidelback, Ickelheimer
Oc Co. The head of the syndicate
in Europe is thought to be the
house of Tnorsch A: C?\ of Vienna. It
is said that Heidelback Ickleheimer &
Co. hold about 3,uuu,lih> ounces ui mc
stock represented by the receipis of the
Mercantile Trust Company, which last
night were 5,-136,553 ounces.
As the needs of the syndicate, which
proposes to purchase about 5,000,U00
ounces, are not yet filled, the silver will
not be as yet withdrawn from the Mercantile
Trust Company. If this were
done the shortness in the supply
would become at once so apparent and
the price would advance rapidly.
The plan oL' the syndicate seems to be
about as follows:" It is thought that
the stock of silver held in 2s ew York

floating supply. Last year .England
held a lars^; stock of silver, but it has
since been sent to Japan, India and
China. The whole production of this
country is used up by the Government
in meeting its legal requirements for
coinage and by the arts. Hence, if Europe
needs any more silver, the syndicate,

position to dictate the price at which
it will part with it.
Moreover, as election time approaches
it is thought that the West will renew
the1 silver agitation and that another
elTort will be made next Congress
to put throuh the free coinage
bill. Silver went up to $120 last year
on expectation of free coinage and if
the bill should become a law this year
it will undoubtedly go to that figure
again.
The third point that the syndicate is
said to be calculaeing upon is that the

to adopt a bimetalic standard. Durinjr
the Baring panic in November the
Bank of England, the greatest financial
institution in the world, was forced to
become a borrower from the Bank of
Franc* of 000,000. The Bank of
France was able to advance this sum
only on account of its ability through
its charter to pay out silver as well as
gold when its notes are presented for
payment.
Acreage of Cottou.
Washington, June 10.?The report
of tiiH sMiisiican of the Department of
Agriculture for June makes the acreage
in cotton 07.7 per cent, of the area
of lh^O, aa<i the average condition 85.
The rtUnction of area is attributed in
some districts to concerted action on
account of low prices, bat it is evident
that it is mainly due to unfavorable
conditio!.s for planting and germination.
The record of planting in the
May r* port is quite an accurate history
of crops to the present time. Planting
was delayed by early rains and drought
in the latter halt ot April followed by
continued drought "in May. Germination
arrested, replanting of defective
stands are the features of the record
frequently and almost universally reported.
Those conditions were less

Virginia 90, Xorth Carolina94.South
Carolina 90, Georgia i*5. Florida 99, Alabama
96, Mississippi 95, Louisiana 'JO,
Texas lu5, Arkansas 90. Tennessee 95.
The general condition is the lowest
for Jane since 1874, though it is only a
fraction lower than that of 1883 and
1889. The latter was a year of good
yield through favorable later conditions.
State averages oi condition are:

Texas '.*1, Arkansas 89, Tennessee 73.
The temperature of May was quite
too low lor cotton, cool nights checking
germination and retarding growth, of
course these conditions make the crop
late in development, in some places a
few days, in others a week or two later
than in seasons of early development.
There is frequent mention of bad
stands, but constant replanting will reduce
the vacancies to a minimum.
Cultivation is necessarily late and fields
>ro crrotsv with the usual variation re
suiting from differences in soil, amount
of replanting, and relative promptness
and elliciency of plantation managers.

There is great excitement here over the

The press is very bitter, and considers
that the United "States, the recognized

"Let Americans take our ships and our
guns, but let them rellect that they

men the sentiment of having been

A I'rivare Sub- t reasury Plan.
Topeka, Kan., June ,10?The alliance
executive committee of Kansas is
considering a scheme which practically
pif.ces the sub-tre isury plan of the national
farmers alliance in the hands of
private capitalists.
J. C. Hopkins, who was a delegate
trom the Xew York Economic club at
iio ^'inmnnofti f finvontion is the oriirina
tor of tho scheme. The plan is to establish
a baak in each county of the State
under the direction of the local alliance
exchange. Th: capital stock is to be
furnished by p.'ivato subscription. In
connection with each bank an elevator
or a store house is to be built. A farmer
may then dump his grain or cotton
into the store houses, receiving for it a
check for 80 per cent, of the value of the
gram deposited by paying a small percentage
for storage and insurance. ITe
will be allowed to keep his grain in the
depository until such time as he may
deem it best to place it upon tne market.
The amount of produce deposited
in this way must not exceed the amount
of stock subscribed for the bank.
The checks to be issued by these
banks are peculiarly devised and are
1 printed in colors. These checks are made
! payable in gold or silver at any ot the
i banks run in this manner. It is intended
that they shall be circulated as
money.

Trains Stopped by Bees.
Huntingdon, Pa., June 5.?The unique
spectacle of a swarm of t>ees stopping
tralfic oq the Pennsylvania Railroad
was witnessed four miles West of
here to-day. As a height train was
passing the farm of Kennedy J. Myton,
I a large colony of his bees suddenly left
j a hive and llew straight tor the cab of
! the ongine. The bees alighted on the
| roof inside and formed a bunch as large
j as a bushel. The engineer stopped his
! train and with his lireman surrendered
the engine to the care ir the intruders.
A long line of Wester i freight trains
was blocked a considerable time until
the owner or the brjes came and reiuov
ed his property.

institution, making a system of
economy and a reduction of former expenses

the old board renewed ;iil the contracts

1U0 additional hands to CJeinson college.
Thus the force was reduced 140?with
which to run the institution. This
made economy still more necessary.
But in the lace of all this the tconomy
practiced was not curried to such an extent
as to deprive convicts of the ordinary
comforts of life. They have been
well led, humanely treated ana given
medical attention and are ;to well clad
as could be reasonably expected of convicts
working on railroads or elsewehre.
"It certainly can not be expected r hat
convicts should be treated better in the
penitentiary than they are at home. 1

"If necessary i can and will produce
certificates ot honorable gentlemen of
the State substantiating my statement,

to halt. The men refused to
stop, and Glaspey Dred both barrels at
them, the men returning the tire.
Compelled to retreat, Glaspey had just
got inside the house when the alleged
White Caps returned,opening fire upon
the house and breaking several windows.
The women were frightened almost
to death, but declare they will not leave
until they tret; --idy. They will be prepared
