A SEIUOUS VIEW
Of tlio Farmers' Alliance in tho South
Taken by an Old Timo Democrat.
Washington-, P. C., Juno 24.?Roprssontatlvo
Oates, of Alabama, who is an
old-fashioned Democrat of tho most uncompromising
sort, takes a very serious
view of the Farmers' Alliance movement
in tlin Smith. Rnnnkini/ to a reDorter
to-day ho said that ho thought the
Southern Democrats Hero too timid am!
trustful in dealing with tho Alliance, and
that they did not fully appreciate the
seriousness of tho situation. "Too many
of our folks," said he "aro trying to
make friends with the Allianco in the
hopes of holding their own hereafter;
but they dcceivo themselves. The Alliance
folks nro not fooled; but our people
aro compromised. The fact is just
this: We have got to fight the Alliance
right outwitli all our might or it will
get the best of us in tho South. No
in an dan believe in theeub-treasuiy and
land-loan schemes .and claim to be a
Democrat The lines must be drawn
sharply, and at once. The Alliance is
now in the minority: but it is organized
well, and our peoplo aro weakening
themselves by cutting shv of the
fight. What" wo must do is to
organize against tho Allianco and
beat it out of existence. If wo do not,
it will beat us, though wo aro In the
majority. In every Democratic convention,
for it is in theso conventions that
<t - 'It! 1._ * _

resolution should bo offered condemning
tho sub-tronsury scheme ns unconstitutional
and undemocratic. If this
resolution is votod down, tho convention
is an Allianco and not a Democratic
Convention, and tho Democrats should
retire and hold n convention elsewhere.
This plan of separating the Doinocrats
from tnc Allianco shpuld bo followed in
ovcry Stnto in tho South."

311ns Cora llullu Fvllowx Ilomnnco Itocalled
by Bar Application for Divorce.
Washington, Juno 24.?Tho latest
chapter In tlio dramatic history of Mrs.
Cora Hello Fellows Chaska has caused
something of a sensation in Washington,
where she is well-known.
Her reported endeavor to got a divorce
from liur Indian husband is looked
on as thu uatural sequol of a marriage
tliat shocked her society friends
and brought sorrow to the home of her
friends.
Miss Cora Bello Fellows was the
bright, attractive daughter of flomer
J'tJIIUWS, U UiLT.t 111 W1U Diugvi Jn
General's ofiico in tho War Department.
She had boon well educated, and lind
adopted school teaching as a profession.
She was a member of Dr. Sunderland's
Presbyterian church, where President
and Mrs. Cleveland wero lommuniennts,
and took cjulto a prominent
and active part in ohurch work.
Socially she was a great favorite,
and had many friends among the old
resident class of Washington. She
made nuito a study of the Indian question
and became possessed of a desiro
to devote her life to the red man as his
teacher. Her parents tried to dissuade
her from burying herself in an Indian
mission, and her friends added thoir entreaties
to stay in Washington and continue
to adorn the social circle in which
she was so brilliant an ornament, but
Miss Cora turned a deaf oar to these
arguments. Shu believed her mission
in lifo was to instruct tho savage, and
sho set her face toward the Dakotas.
Finally Miss Cora secured an appointment
aS teacher at one of the Sioux
agoncies in South Dakota, and was not.
lon^ in establishing herself in her now
work. Sho was u popular teacher. . Not
only was her school room tilled with little
Indian girls and boys, but young
braves, old enough to ueo tho toma
liuwk ana wear war paint ana learners,
came to tho wigwam of tho white squaw
and received their elementary instruction.
Tiio school would hare prospered
had not C'upid entered and caused
hi-; usual discord. Among the
pupils of liighor grade was Sam
Chaslca, a full-blooded Sioux, but
who seemed anxious to adopt
tho white man's modo of life and to gam
a white man's education. Chaska and
his fair teacher lingered oft ovor vulgar
fractions, and together entcrod (lie olementnry
branch of natural philosophy.
Mies Cora finally grow so indispensable
to the young chief that he concludcd to
ask her to cuter his wigwam and bocomo
his wife. With all liis natiro eloquence
he pleaded his cause. Cora allowed
her enthusiasm in tho Indian
work to overcome her, und she consented
to marry Chaska, tho ceremony being
performed according to tho conventional
lorm.
llardly had the marriage taken place
before the bride realized her mistako.
Chaska did not provo the magnificent
specimen of nature's trno nobleman
that she had pictured him to bo. He
inherited the Indian's natural aversion
to earn n livelihood and supporting a
Jamily. When next hoard from the
Chaskns wore represented in numeroufc
dispatches as figuring on tho stngo of a
dime museum. It is but fair to say that
tho accounts of their having exhibited
themselves in cheap shows wore never
absolutely continued. Tho noxt chaptor
opens with tho advent of a little
Chaska, for a copper-huod pappoosc has
raised its infantile whoop in tho lodgo
of Sam. This news is. followed by tho
roport from Chamberlain, 8. D., yesterday,
that Mrs. Chaska has docidcd to
aptly for a divorco from Sam.
The causes which lend to the application
for i> divorce arc not given,butthoy
can readily bo traced to a dissimilarity
InihimMimnn) tlM/l nrlllfinflftll
Mr. Homer Fellows, tlio father of Mrs.
Chaska, donied having anv knowledge
of his diaughtor's action. About a year
ago, he said, she left homo in a huff on
account of her parents' opposition to her
marriago with an Inilinn. Sinco then
nono of her relatives have heard from
her. Sir. Fellows was very much agitated
when speaking about his daughter,
and said that ho and his family felt most
keenly the disgrace that had come upon
them.
