THIS SUFFRAGE PLANK SATISFACTORY.
The Woman'i TribuM is'probably the leading American journal devoted spe cially to to the Interest of universal suf frage, and here Is what It has to say re specting the action of the Cincinnati convention: With regard to the action of the Cincin nati convention upon woman suffrage, it is all that could be expected from a party not organized with that as its main object, for it throws the burden of obligation upon the party ;in its state organizations where, if the women do their duty and elect the proper representatives to the conventions, the question will be worked out. In a party that allows women delegates, elects women offloers, and, in fact, gives them equal rights and opportunities from the first rural meeting to the great national convention, the opportunity is before women to use the party and bind it to their interests. The women of this People's party are very largely women who have ob tained their political education in the Alli ance and in the Grange. They have united with fathers, brothers and husbands to se cure better industrial conditions, and hav ing felt in their every-day life the pressure of an unjust economic system, it is folly to expect them to forsake the standard of the men of their families because it does not stand first and foremost for woman suf frage, however much they may desire it. But they can mould their party and will do it as fast as they are themselves educated to Bee that until the foundations of a party are laid in justice, liberty and equality, it can not be wholly right in any particular. The resolutions adopted by the party en dorsed the demands of the platform as adopted at St. Louis in 1889, Ooala in 1890, and Omaha in 1891, and it will be remem bered that the first and last unequivocally endorsed the ballot for women. A TRUE ALLIANCE MAN WRITES FROM THE SOUTH. To the Editor of Tub Advocate : Being an humble farmer, one who knows what a day's work is from experi ence, and having occupied an humble position in the ranks of the great move ment now on foot to revolutionize and Americanize American citizens, I beg leave to say through the columns of your valuable paper, that my heart swells with emotions of gratitude for which language fails me to express my thanks to God for having given to the world such men and patriots as Folk, Macune, Clover, Fowderly and a host of other liberty-loving lights. And while the partizan press may endeavor to ma lign and slander them, may they as our leaders ever keep their eyes fixed upon the motto, "Equal rights to all, special privileges to none." And may the rank and file of the Alliance men and the great industrial classes keep the line "dressed" from ocean to ocean and from the great lakes to the gulf of Mexico; aye, may we have a union indeed, a union with no north, no south, no east, no west, but that accursed Mason and Dixon's line entirely wiped out. And may the aim of all good men be to promote peace and perpetuate the liberty of this people. If we fall to do our duty in this great fight we certainly have degenerated from the men of T6. It Is plain to men of all par ties that our demands and grievances are unheeded by both the Democratic and Republican parties both are opposed to us hence we say it is the duty of the south and west to unite In saving the home of Washington. I believe the northwest is ready for the union. Unit ed the south and west are invincible. Brother Ott, of Arlsple Alliance, Pot tawatomie county, Kansas, frequently wrote me last year, and I enjoyed his .letters very much; hope to hear from him again In the near future. I think you may look out for some subscribers from this section this coming fall If I am living. It affords me great pleasure to say to you that we Alliance men away down south contributed of our little means to the suffering brethren In South Dakota. Hope they are getting along all right; If not, we are willing to help them again. The sub-Alliance of which I am a member, Oklsko No. 1011, meets semi monthly, Saturdays and Fridays alter nately.

May his blessings rest upon and abide with the brethren all over this great country, and may we do nothing rashly, but be sure to be on the alert and keep our powder dry for 1892, that when the word "fire" is given it shall result In an utter rout of our enemy. I trust I have not tress passed too much upon your time and pa tience. Yours fraternally, M. G. Gregory. Oklsko, N. C, May 27, 1801. Hall's Hair Benewer has prevented many heads from being bald.
