Jacksonville. Fla., Dec. 13. In its issue

the following from St. Augustine:
"Since the final adjournment of the Na
tional Farmers' Alliance at Ocala. on Mon
day last, incontestible proof has beeu
brought out to show the existence of a gi
gantic plot to use this national organiza
tion as a means for promoting the third
party scheme which came to the surface in
two or three different forms durine the
recent gathering. A significant fact in this
connection is the vote of the Northwestern
Alliance men, who are almost without ex
ception Kepublicans, and who came to
OcaJa with the avowed purpose of forcing
the National Alliance to indorse their
pet schemes for a third party. It
eoon became apparent, however, that
this indorsement could not be secured, al
though vigorous work in this direction
Mas put in during the tirst three or four
days of the session. When the sub-treasury
scheme came ud for indorsement on
Monday last the final vote on the passage
of this demand was a surprise in many re
spects. The Northwesterners were found
to be solid iu their support of the measure,
although their political affiliations in the
Dast and the sentiment of the people whom
they are supposed to represent would nat
urally have led to open opposition to this
measure. The leaders in the third-party
movement from that section are, McGrath,
of Kansas; Loncks. of North Dakota:
Waniall, of South Dakota, and Willi ts, of
Kansas, and they are warmly supported by
delegates from Wisconsin and other near
"During the tour of the State, which has
been in progress for the past four or five
days, these third-party plotters have un
bosomed themselves to a certain extent in
their conversation with their fellow. ex
cursionists and newspaper men. In general
their statements are to the effect: They
are really opposed to the sub-treasury bill;
that they regard it as wrong in principle
and as a legislative device which can end
only in financial ruin to the farmer and to
every other industrial class; that the peo
ple of their section are opposed to it, and
that they, as delegates, were particularly
charged with the mission to defeat the
measure when they left their homes.
"They say, also, that upon, their return
they will be asked to make explanation of
their strange conduct in giving their support
to this demand of the National Alliance, and
the explanation which they will be forced
to make is this: That the sub-treasury de
mand is of such a nature that it can never
gain the support of the Democracy of tho
Southern States, and that an attempt to se
cure such Democratic support can end only
in a split in the Democratio ranks in the
South. This, they say, will break up the
'solid South and this is the end which
they have had m view. They profess to be
lieve that their people will applaud them
lor having entered into an arrangement
by which this end can be accomplished,
and that they will feel that tho sacrifice of
their principles in connection with the sub
treasury scheme has not been too great, if,
thereby, the Democratic party can he hope
, In support of this general policy as out
lined, several of these plotters have been
placed upon record. For instance. Presi
dent McGrath, of the Kansas Alliance, said
in the presence of several witnesses yester
day: Vedidnot vote for the sub-treasury
bill because we believed in it The
fact is, we are opposed to it; but we saw
that by making it an issue in the South we
could break up the Democratic party.
This is the explanation wo will iY6 our
constituents when we return home.'
J. S. Willita. of Kansas, who is the most
prominent candidate for the United States
eenatorship in opposition to Installs, said:
We never did like the sub-treasury bill,
and we have no confidence in it now. bnt
we supported it at Ocala so as to divide the
South and break up the Bourbon Democ
racy.' "It appears also that these sentiments
have entrapped other delegates than those
from the ultra Republican Northwest. The
Hon. F. ll. Carskadon, an influential
banker of West Virginia, has been heard to
eav: We Northerners were opposed to the
sub-treasury bill until we found that by
making it an issue the Southern Democracy
could be divided and make room for a new
party.' It is needier to add that Mr.
Carskadon is a Kepublican, and an uncom
promising third-party man.
"In this connection it is learned also
that the recently-organized Reform Press
Association is a body whose purpose it is
to mold opinion among Alliance men in
every State toward the promotion of the
third-party movement. The facts sur
rounding its organization and sub
sequent reorganization. its action
ami its evident policy prove
this bejrond a sdadow of doubt.
The third-party men at Ocala who have
connection with the reform press, in the
Alliance, in the Farmers' Mutual Benefit
Association, in the Knights of Labor and in
other kindred organizations, decided that
their aims could be accomplished in a large
measure through newspaper influence, but
when they saw that their project would
not secure an out-and-out indorse
ment fron the organized body of dele
gates they set about to carry their
schemes through in another way. They
saw only defeat in pushing the project to a
vote in the convention, and the speech of
Dr. Macune. chairman of the national ex
ecutive board, and a strong third-party
man, in which he advocated non-action un
til the Alliance should find out what one
or the other of tho two existing political
parties proposed to do in the way of giving
legislative relief, was too temporizing for
their purposes. They therefore determined'
to push the thing through their own
channels. Not aft of the 'rrtorui press' rep
resentatives could be relied upon to advo
cate a third party, so the press promoters
of this scheme awaited an opportunity for
organizing when the more liberal among
them could be eluded. This opportunity
came on Monday last, during the Alliauce
excursion to Silver Springs. About
a dozen of them met in an
old shed near the Springs, adopt
ed a constitution and elected otlicers
They were almost without exception Re
publicans and third-party men. The eligi
bility clause in this constitution piovidtd
that any newspaper editor or manager
could become a member if only he advo
cated the Alliance measures as promul
gated in the famous fct. Louis de
mands. The Ocala demands had not
then been adopted, and the St. Louis
demands did not include the sub-treasury
bill. All reform editors and managers
identified with tho Knights of Labor move
ment or with the promotion of. tho inter
ests of the Farmers' Mutual Benefit Associa-
tion were also eligible to membership in
this association. 1 be name ot Hon. W. ti.
McAllister, of Mississippi, who is a well
known newspaper man and a writer on Al
liance topics, was proposed for membership
and he was admitted. Although he was
not present at the meeting, his name was
"No further meeting of the reform press
was held until yesterday, when the mem
bers were called to order in the after saloon
of the steamer while on her way from Kock
Ridge. About a dozen were present, and
McAllister offered the secretary his mem
bership fee in open meeting. As that
official was about to receive the money
Mr. Vincent, of vansas, one of the
editors of the Non-conformist, arose and
said that, inasmuch as some dissatisfaction
had been expressed at the elasticity of the
eligibility clause of the constitution, he
moved that no more applicants be admitted
to full membership until the constitution
had been amended to meet this objection.
Dr. Macune then moved that the
old constitution be abolished in toto,
which was done. Then Vincent drew from
his pocket a new constitution, which ho
proceeded to read, and which was rushed
through to an adoption without allowing
any debate on its various sections. This
instrument contained arestrictedelegibilitv
clause, wnicbsbutoutall newspapers which
do not advocate the sub-treasury bill, and
which provided for the organization of a leg
islative board, which shall designate from
time to time the measures and demands to
be advocated by the reform press. This
action was undoubtedly prompted by a de
termination to shut out all newspapers and
newspaper men not in sympathy with the
sub-treasury bill and the third-party
"Inquiry among prominent Alliance men,
outside the press organization and in it,
fails to bring to light any other reason for
the exclusion of McAllister, and conserva
tive Alliance men of every political faith
agree that this 'reform press' is
only one of the means by which
the third party issue is to
be forced upon the Alliance with a hopo of
dividiug the Democratic party of theSouth.
And a determination is daily strengthening
among Southern Democrats in the Alliance
that a desperate effort must be made to pull
the Farmer's AliUnce away from the sub
treasury folly before the next annual meet
"Mr. McAllister was seen late last night
by a representative of the Times-Union,
lie had stopped off here en route to Ashe
ville to attend the Southern immigration
convention. When asked as to the truth
of the statement that the Reform Press As
sociation had changed its constitution with
a special view to his exclusion, he said: 'I
had notice that this was going to bo
done, but did' not believe that the
third-party men would resort to such
extreme measures as to change the eligi
bility clause in their constitution. I am,
however, certain now that it was done
solely with a view to my exclusion.'
"Tor what reason would they seek to
"The Reform Press Association is made
up, with one exception, of third-party men.
This exception is President McDowell, of
the Tennessee Alliance, and the editor of
the Toiler. I clashed with these men when
the attempt was made to reconsider tho
elections bill resolution, and all along tho
line of the third-party issue.'
"'What, in your opinion, will bo the re
sult of their combinations? Will a third
party actually come out of them!'
"'If designing men can control the rank
and file of the Alliance membership, a
third party will inevitably result, but I
doubt the ability of these men to long
mislead and deceive the people whom
they are professing to serve. I
have always held the Farmers' Allianco
to be non-partisan, and therefore non-no-
litical. In fact, its constitution enjoins
strict non-interference in partisan poli
tics.' Its. success depends upon nnity and
harmony, llenco the introduction of
partisan politics would be fatal to the pur
pose for which it was instituted. The Al
liance is a sectional organization, and if
politics are. admitted it at once becomes a
sectional political organization. Such or
ganizations are repugnant to the spirit of
free institutions, and, if sanctioned, must
invariably destroy them. Their unhallowed
history is written in violence, class dis
turbances, social disruption and the tragic
wreck of governments.' I have the utmost
confidence in the justice, conservatism and
patriotism of the farming class, and when
this issue shall be equally made I doubt not
that my position, as here outlined, will be
. "To, what extent is this third-party
movement being extended beyond the
Western and Northwestern Alliances?'
" The plot is not confind to the West and
Northwest. It has penetrated the Eastern
States, and even the South itself is tattoed
all over with this third-party movement
frenzy, and if the conservative men of all
sections and all parties do not address
themselves immediately to the demands
provoking this ill-omend movement, a giant
will arise that will annihilate time-honored
" 'What do you understand President
Polk's attitude to be on the third-party
"I believe President Polk to be destitute
of any selfish impulse. He is broad, liberal
and enlightened, and he is sincerely at
tached to the common interests of the
whole American people. His policy is to
give both parties an opportunity to grant
the demauda of a patient and long-suffering
people, but should they hesitate or fail in
granting the substantial relief, he will feel
it his duty to sever his party affiliations or
champion the cause of the people.'

" The grand old Georgian is a straight
out Andrew Jackson Democrat, and under
stands the political act from Cape Cod to
Kalamazoo. He will go into the Democratic
side of tho Houseiu Washington, and if the
Democratic party is disrupted it will be

New Albany Suffers by Fire.
Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
Nkw Albany. Ind., Dec. 18. A destructive
fire, attended by a narrow escape from
death, was discovered this morning, about
V2:ZQ o'clock, in the saloon and
residence of Michael Dowd. The
flames had gained considerable headway
before the firemen arrived, and spread to
the surrounding property before they could
bo subdned. Mr. Dowd's house was de
destroyed with all its contents. While tho
place was a mass of flames Mr. Dowd re
membered that he had forgotten a purse
containing the savinss of j-ears,
and before ho could be restrained, he dart
ed into the burning building. Securing
the wallet, he turned to leave the house,
but his way was barred by a large scant
ling which had fail en across the
door. Overcome by the heat he
sank to the floor unconscious,
nnd was dragged from his perilous position
by H. 0. Kepner, captain of No. 1 hook and
ladder company. '1 be loss to Mr. Dowd
will aggregate $3,500, on which there is
about 1,200 insurance in the Glens Falls
and Germania companies. The cottage of
Eliza Hngan was damaged to the amount
of $i0. Tho two-story residence of Louis
Spicer was also partly destroyed, his loss
being $1,000. There was no insurance on
these houses. This is the third disastrous
fire which has occurred in this city during
the past month.
Natural Gas Exposition.
Special to tie Indianapolis Journal.
. Mamox, Ind.. Dec. 13. Atan enthusiastio
meeting of the Hoard of Trado of this city,
last night, was sot on foot oue of tho most
unique enterprises that perhaps has ever
been projected. It is nothing more or less
than a series of natural-gas expositions,
the first of which is to be held here in the
fall of 1891.
The purpose is to attract the attention of
the world to the infinitely diverse uses to
which natural gas may be applied, and thus
to the greatest of all gas-fields. A display
will be made of all the articles manufact
ured by its use, which already includes a
variety to excite the wonder of mankind,
and there will be a countless number of
other attractions which are possible only
where the incomparable fuel can be ap
plied. The meeting last night was ad
dressed by George M. Bailey, of Buf
falo. N. Y who founded the successful in
dustrial fair at that place, managed the
Detroit exposition, and was United States
commissioner to the world's fair at Paris.
The management of the first natural-gai
exposition will be in bis hands.
The co-operation of the other Indiana
gas cities is assured, and everything now
indicates that next fall Indiana will be at
tracting the attention of the world in a
manner never before experienced by any
section of country on earth. The project
is not a chimerical one by any means.
It has already enlisted the services and the
support of the most influential and enter
prising men in this part of the State, as
well as many others from the East It has
been in contemplation and under discussion
for some time, and the feeling in Marion
to-day is that nothing can prevent it from
beooming a remarkable success.

Four Persons Killed at a Crossing.
Bristol, Pa., Dec. 13. A shocking acci-,
dent occurred at the Mill-street railroad'
crossing, this afternoon, by which four
persons were killed, one fatally wounded
and one seriously hurt. 1 he accident was
caused by the safety gates at the crossing
being raised just before tho New York
west-bound express was due. A num
ber of persons had been waiting
for a freight train to pass, and as
soon as the gates were raised,
started to cross. John Mcllvain, a teams
ster, started across with his wagon, in
which was his thirteen-year-old son,
Joseph Hnssev. about the same ago. Hugh
Dever. a storekeeper on Pine street, and
Johu McKee. about fifteen years old. The
express train, which was ruuning at full
speed, struck the wagon, killing Neal Mo-
llvam. Joseph Hnssev and Hugh Dever.
John Mcllvain had his shoulder and leg
broken, ribs crushed and was othewise
internally injured. He is not expected to
live. The two boys were struck with such
force that thev were thrown into the canal.
Joseph Johnson, who was crossing the track
on foot, was also struck by the engine and
instantly killed. John McGee, who was
also in the wagon, was badly injured. Tho
gate-keeper claims that the clatter of tho
freight train passing drowned the noise of
the bells so that they could not be heard.
He will probably be arrested.

vior, who said the world would
soon come to an end, and for her to tell all
tho people here to prepare. She saw a
number of people she knew, among them
one of her brothers. She also saw former
acquaintances burning in the fiery furnaces
of hell, but would give no names. Whilo

lady in the audience, who was hit in tho
face. Miss Hughes will finish her vision
when she regains consciousness.
