WILL STICK BY PARTY.
The Alliance Considers and ill ltcjwt the Independent Action Plan. The Report ol the Committee to that ISlt'ect Discussed in Executive Session. Criticism on President Muir1 Address—Vsirions Notes and Personals. Today's Proceeding* So raauy delegates took advantage of Mayor Puller's offer of transportation to aud from the asylum that not enough remained Thursday to transact busi ness and a recess oE an hour xvus taken. The delegates reconvened shortly after 11 o'clock wit.h a small attendance and immediately went into executive session to receive and discuss the reports of the various committees. All persons except alliance men were excluded from the room. The committee on future political ac tion made it3 report. It recommended thatior the present the alliance endeav or to work within the parties that the committee on resolutions formulate an alliance platform, and that the political parties be requested to incorporate it in their party platforms and nominate can didates in sympathy therewith. In case of non-compliance with these requests the committee further recommended that the delegates from each county as semble and the alliance launch out upon its proposed plan of independent ac tion. The report was signed by four of the five members of the committee. The other member submitted minority report recommending that independent action be taken immediately i. o. that the alli ance men cut loose from present party affiliations and organize a party of their own, nominate alliance tickets, etc., etc. The gentleman who submitted this re port, it is said, was personally opposed to the action he recommended and made the report under instructions from the rlhance he represents. These reports were received in secret session and were followed by an interesting and animated one-sided discussion. At the noon ad journment action had not been taken, but it is safe to predict that the majori ty report will be adopted. With the ex ception of a few brief remarks by one speaker the expressions of speakers in the discussion were favoraole to its adoption. The report of the legislative committee will be made next. This report was diawn up this morning. The committee on resolutions will probably report another lottery resolu tion The Alliance is in executive session again this afternoon. One of the dele gates said this morning that the meet ing will adjourn about 3 o'clock in the morning. First Day Concluded. When the Alert's report closed Wetlnes dry afternoon the Alliance meeting was the scene of an interesting discussion as to the advisability of independent polit ical action. There were half a dozen short speeches. The independent party men seemed to be in the majority. They made the most speeches and were most loudly applauded. The matter is in the hands of a committee and no action will be taken until its report is made. From politics the discussion suddenly turned into a consideration of the causes that are responsible for the farmers present condition, and Fenton of Cass and With am, of Dickey, had a long discussion as to what the real cause is. Fenton as ecribed it to a number of causes. With am said the contraction of the currency was the real cause. President Muir broke into the discussion to announce the following committee, the appoint ment of which was made necessary by the program committee's report: On secret organization—J. J. Oliver, Wm. Campbell, W. F. Kellogg. W. C. Briggs, J. C. Esterbrook. Future political action—James Dobie, J. W. Stoddard, L. D. Richardson, David Martin, A. W. Cunningham. Legislation, past and future—L. A. Ueland, W. W. JBeard, vV. H. Doughty, E. W. Bowen, A. D. Tomlinson. Official paper—C. H. Burrows, A. E. Fenton, A. J. Cole, D. I. Eyers, Li. C. Gott, John X. Wilson, A. W. Kennedy. Committee on co-operation to report at annual session—N. G. Massy, R.B. Rich ardson. C. Boise. All of the committees met last night. They are expected to report sometime today. An interesting meeting was held last night. President Muir delivered his address, which was quite lengthy and sounded somewhat like the wail of a pessimist. He devoted his time to telling how bad the condition of the farmer is. Bon. M. N. Johnson was then called for but was not in the hall. A delegation was sent for him and soon returned accompanied by the gentleman who made a &hort, moderate speech,more in the nature of a conversational talk. He advised the alliance to adopt the secret work, and referred to the Fargo republican convention as proof that the farmers can accomplish all they desire by working within the party. Mr. John son was followed by Hon. Smith Stim mel of Cass county, who talked about a half an hour. A general, informal dis cussion of the alliance sub-treasnry bill followed and at its conclusion the meet ing adjourned. Notes. A large number of alliance men weDt out to visit I. C. Wade's stock farm this morning. .**• 'j, iS 1 Among the well known men who came in yesterday afternoon are Smith Stiui mel, Lecturer Limipman and Hon. L. L. Walton. Interviews with alliance delegates from all parts of the state indicate that an abundance of rain has already fallen and that the prospect for a good crop year is excellent. A considerable portion of Hon A. Thompson's communication on Mr Muir's address has necessarily been omitted for lack of space. An emphatic and convincing farmer orator said yesterday: The United States has never raised enough wheat to prop erly feed the people of the United States, Don't talk to me of over-production. Delegate Lute Walton of Wells coun ty, says the farmers there are feeling jubilaut. They are sowing Hax yet. large aereago of that crop will be put in this year. One orator yesterday was so ambitious to have the alliance "do more work in a day than a legislature could in a week," that he did not want the delegates to have time to eat dinner. Hon. H. M. Clark of Eddy county came down yesterday afternoon and is participating in the convention. Mr. Clark was a member of the constitution al convention from Eddy county. A. M. Powell of Devils Lake, one of the pioneers of Ramsey county, and 0, Mooers, a large farmer of the county drove from Devils Lake, making the trip in two days. Both are delegates to the alliance meeting. Hon. F. B. Fancher has frequently been noticed forming the central figure in a gvoup of delegates who were eager listeners to whatever counsel fell from his lips. Among all the prominent alli ance men none stand higher with the farmers than Mr. Fancher. Ben Terrill, lecturer of the National Farmers' alliance and industrial union, is expected up from the south on the Valley train tonight. He not will reach here until 11:30, but the farmers voted yesterday to remain in session that late and listen to his address. The tariff question received a fair share of attention yesterday. However, no one mentioned it after Farmer Fen toa admitted that he knew nothing about it, and quoted Congressman Allen's declaration: "I believe I have a better right than anybody to talk on the tariff, because I kuow less about it." There was a mention of Hon. Smith Stimmel's name in the alliance meeting as a candidate for governor. The gen tleman took the suggestion gracefully. It seems generally understood that Gov ernor Miller will not be before the far mers for re-election. There was a pro hibition resolution introduced and its reception was quite cordial. This indi cated that Hon. George Winshic of Grand Forks, the present prohibition leader in the state, is still the choice of many of Governor Miller's supporters for the executive nomination. S. W. Unkenholz of Morton county, who was the chairman of the credential committee, is a Knight of Labor and one of the strong men of his county. When this independent party question was under consideration yesterday afternoon, he said: "I believe this independent action project is all folly. The people of my part of the country do not think as I do, and I fear you would not have much strength in that vicinity. I do not think you should go further with this move until you know your strength as com pared with the strength of the other par ties." There are quite a number of ex-mem bers of the legislature attending the con vention. Among them are E. H. Berg man, the good natured Icelander who represented Pembina county in the last territorial legislature and who came with in one vote of receiving the republican nomination for railroad commissioner at Fargo last August. There are Andrew Slotten and R. B. Richardson, both of whom were in the constitutional conven tion and the last legislature and were valuable members of both. Ira 1). Lampman of Valley City, ranked high among the leaders of the last territorial legislature. Smith Stimmell of Cass, is the farmer who beat Major Edwards for the council aad was president of that body in the same legislature. Of the last legislature there are E. W. Bowen, the watchful and good natured gentleman who represented Sargent county, L. A. Ueland, whose efforts to get an experi mental station for LaMoure gave him a high standing early in the session which he retained until the end, L. L. Walton, the genial heavy weight from Wellscoun ty.who was a good man off or on the floor, \Y. W. Beard of Cass county, the womans rights advocate whose speech "Steve" said was the best of the session, and W. H. H. Ronev of Steele county, the one armed soldier who watched legislation as closely and got in as many amend ments as anybody. frcsiilent Muir's Address. To THE EDITOK OF THE ALERT:—I listened very attentively last night to President Muir's annual address before the state convention of the Farmers' Alliance for North Dakota, and while he stated many interesting facts in regard to the farming interests of the United States, there were still many other facts that were omitted. The general drift of the speech was too desponding and, if I dare say it, altogether misleading. Any one who heard him would natural ly conclude that the farmers of this county were, as a class, the most pover ty-stricken people in it, while I believe that is susceptible of abundant proof that they are among the most thrifty, in dependent and respectable portion of our population. Statistics show that over ninety per cent, of the merchants in this country have failed at some time in their lives. If any one will consult the weekly reports of Dun & Co., or Bradstreet, he will find very few farmers among the failures. The farmers are so in the habit of pay ing 100 cents on the dollar, with a high rate of interest to boot, that they only ask for a little more time and good crops to meet all their honest obligations. The president's ,ouly panacea for the ills that now afflict the North Dakota farmers was plenty of cheap money is sued by the government and the passage of the sub-treasury bill, now pending in the senate of the United States. I have not seen this crazy sub-treasury bill, but Mr. Muir gave us a brief outliue of the plan. It is for the government to establish repositories in convenient lo calities aud advance money to the farm ers on the deposit of wheat, cotton and the other great staples. For example— If the North Dakota farmer got say 80 cents advanced for his wheat and the market went down to 70 cents per bush el, ho could :he governmeut take it and pocket the Of all the vision ary schemes in :...utiro that have ever been broached in this county since the days of the greenback craze just after the close of the rebellion, I think this sub-treasury bill takes the cake. It is enough to make S. P. Chase, who was the original inventor of the greenback, turn over in his coffin. I hope President Muir spoke only for himself when he gave the scheme his public indorsement and not for the Alliance, of which he is the honored head. Nothing could bring the Alliance into disrepute among sensi ble business men outside sooner than for it to give its official indorsement to such a fantastic scheme of finance, un lsss it could be to ask the government to issue an unlimited amount of irredeema ble greenbacks and lend them out at a low rate of interest on personal property as collateral security. They are twin ideas in absurdity and so much alike that you can't tell "tother from which.'' A. M. THOMPSON. City Council. Adjourned regular meeting of the city council was held Thursday, Mayor Fuller presiding. All the members were pres ent. Bill of E. G. Bowman. 82.10, was al lowed under suspension of the rules. The following were the bids for laying water mains: per running Wm. Gleason, 26 cents foot. J. T. Eager. 27 cents per running foot A. M. Clough, 21 cents per running foot. Gasal & Haas, 211.)' cents per running foot for 1,510 feet and 20 cents for 2.200 feet. Alderman Steel moved that but 1.540 feet be laid. Alderman Eager moved to amend by substituting 2,200 feet. The amendment prevailed and the original motion as amended prevailed. On motion of Alderman Alley the bid of Gasal & Haas was accepted and the contract awarded to them. On motion of Alderman Klaus the bid for pipe, hydrants, etc., made by H. P. Rugg & Co. was accepted. They offered to deliver same for 2,200 foot extension for 81,360. Ou motion of Alderman Eager the water works committee, with the city attorney, wore instructed to enter into contract with Gasal Sr Haas to complete the work of laying water mains, Mes srs. Gasal »fc Haas to give a bond suf ficient for the faithful completion of the work. Alderman Klaus introduced the fol lowing resolution: Resolved, That the sum of S100 be and the same is hereby appropriated out of the general fund of the city to defray the expenses of the hook and ladder company in attending the Firemen's tournament at Fargo, une 17-20. The resolution was adopted by an unan imous aye and nay vote. On motion of Alderman Steel, the fol lowing were chosen judges of election for the school election to be held June 17th, 1890: First ward—J. K. Burgster, E.H.Teall, Geo. McGregor—at county auditor's of fice. Second ward—D. B. McLain, A.Brand, J. Crum—at engine house. Third ward—U. T. Carpenter, L. R. Herbert, W. P. Sheppard—at old court house. Fourth ward—C. R. Flint, Chas. Hen sell. A. Steinbach—at police station. On motion of Alderman Hotchkiss.the electric light committee with the city attorney was instructed to see whether the present contract with the Electric Light company can be transferred to Mr. Klaus. On motion council adjourned. Mr. Johnson Explains. Hon. M. N. Johnson states that the extract from a speech he made at Grand Forks, which extract is going the rounds of the state press and is to the effect that the editors of two Norwegian papers had more brains than the editors of the 150 English papers of the state, does not convey the meaning intended and understood by the audience. The state ment was in the nature of a pleasantry and taken in its other connection could give no offense, as certainly none was intended. Mr. Johnson was speaking of the active support the two Scandina vian papers referred to gave to prohi bition last fall. He remarked that those journals with a combined circulation of about 8,000 took prohibition for the cor ner stone of the campaign and bent every energy to further the cause they advo cated. The English papers did not make a specialty or work exclusively for that issue, and, as it was well known that pro hibition was carried by aid of Scandi navian votes, the two newspapers of that nationality, he thought, showed more skill accomplishing a given result than all the English papers combined. How Tilings are Growing! The rain clouds that were beginning to wear a familiar look disappeared from the sky Friday morning. At 8 a. m. the thermometer stood 70 above in the sun out of the wind—which in other parts of this country would correspond to shade. The grass is fairly turning summersaults in its efforts to make a record at growing. The leaves are fully out, and small unobtrusive flowers are beginning to push up from the prairie sod. The lonjj hours of sunshine will have telling effect on the wheat fields. The wind bringing fresh invoices of air food to the plants is doing its important share, too. The cool weather is just the thing needed after the rains. Declined to lie Worked. The editorial statement in the Minne apolis Journal that the Farmers'alliance investigated the charges of wire cutting agaiust Superintendent McCabe and the attitude of the Northern Pacifio railroad company ou the lottery question, is right in ljne th the unreliable rot the paper has been printing of lute. The Alert is in possession of information that effect ually aud forever gives the lie to the Journal statement and at the same time exposes the malignant animus of the paper in making the charges aud the unscrupulonsness of those who inspire th« charges and furnish the misinforma tion for the staff correspondent who is now in North Dakota. Tha Alert is as sured from a dozen diffeient sources than Superintendent McCabe's name was not mentioned in the alliance meetings and that what was said about the Northern Pacific railroad was of a most compli mentary nature. The faot is that an at tempt was made to have the alliance take'up the matter and so sure were the instigators of succeeding that they tele graphed the Journal in advance that such would be done The alliance indicated the general good feeling toward the Northern Pacific and at the same rebuked the meddlers who were endeavoring to "work" the organization, by unanimously adopting the following resolution: Resolved.—That the North Dakota Farmers' Alliance extend their hearty thanks to the Northern Pacific railroad management for the favors and courtesies extended to the members of this con vention. When the resolution was introduced a delegate moved to amend by including also the Great Northern railroad but the amendment was promptly vo*ed down. Theresolution was introduced by Witham of Dickey county. Delegate Jim Stoddard, of LaMoure county, is one of the level headed alliance men and knows an enemy of the farmers interests when he sees him. Mr. Stod dard called attention to the elevator monopolies and insisted that the alliance should demand legislative regulation to protect the farmor against their extor tionate methods of "doing business." One of the resolutions of the alliance returned thanks to "Hon. B. W. Fuller, mayor of the city and to the citizens of Jamestown for fraternal greetings and courtesies extended." The alliance adopted a series of reso lutions atd then did not want them pub lished. What is the use of a platform if it is not published? Amount ol' Rainfall. The total rainfall in North Dakota, as given by the signal service officials for 1S89, amounted to but 2.28 inches. The amount of water that fell at this place Tuesday last and Tuesday night, was 1 54 iuches. Including the rains of last Thursday and Sunday, the total is swelled to -l}. inches, or almost twice as much within the past week as fell during all of 1S89. This immense amount of moisture will suffice for crops for at least a month, and puts beyond fear of any drouth the crop for this year. "Selling Like hot Cakes." Minneapolis Evening Tribune: News boy at Sioux Falls meets tram from Minneapolis bearing Evening Jay pack age. Boy puts the package in his pocket and proceeds up street, whistling "An nie Rooney." Supt. McCabe, of Northern Pacific road, appears upon the scene. "Say, kid, got Evening Jay?" "Bettcher life, got three. That's all the subscribers we got now." "Sell one?" "Sure pop." "Packpge is extracted from the boy's pants pocket and one of three copies is sold. Boy proceeds to store. Tells agent. Latter immediately telegraphs Eve. Jay as follows: Sioux City. June 90 That fake you fellows sprung is selling papers like hot cakes. McCabe lias alreadv bought up one-third of all available copies Mail another copy touidit, sure. Agent Eve. Jay. The Gossip Going. Joe Harris: Saw a Fort Totten Indian aud his squaw on the streets yesterday. He was looking for John "Waugh!" Rev. Kline, Bismarck: The LaMoure Baptist association was a great success The Baptists brought the rain, they say. E. W. Camp: The typewritten resolu tions referred to by the Capital were copied off on my typewriter at Secretary Williams' request. I did not prepare them. E. G. Bowman: I have the latest novelty—direct from the booths of the Italian venders on Market street, Phila delphia. Tell the people to come around and inspect it. W. M. Dwyer: Big rains in Logan county. Judge Rose knows. He was out in the storm all the way from Na poleon to Steele and got "a thorough drenching. I have heard renewed rumors about ironing the Soo, since the rains. Dawson Times: The appointment of John Story as census enumerator is a good one. Kidder county darlings be ware. John can get the color of your hair, and the condition of your back teeth—while you are determining, whether you were born in 1701 or 71. Geo. Lilly, Ashley: There is talk of ironing the Soo grade this summer. The grade is generally in good shape. The rains have washed it some. There are also rumors of the connection be ing built between Aberdeen and Watertown. It is reported that the Soo and Minneapolis & St. Louis, which has a branch from Minneapolis to Watertown, have consolidated. A Kicker: What do you think of the council's action in voting the hook and ladder company 8100, to defray their ex penses in attending the Fargo tourna ment? The city attorney gave as his opinion, I understand, that the action would be illegal and I hope Mayor Fuller will veto the resolution. I under stand that the city owes the three com 4 panies of the fire department nearly two years salary at $50 each per year. If that is so why did not the council pay the hook and ladder company two year's salary instead of giving them $100 out right, in violation of the charter? No one could object to that company draw in its salary and going to the tourna -. ut, but I, for one, am doing a little ro .ring over the the council's prodigal oiid illegal giving away of public money. If the fire department or any particular company wants to go to Fargo, why don't they settle that old case and divide the 8500 which has been tied up in court for several years? I want the boys to go to the tournament I want to see a good fire department here but I do not want the council to make illegal appropria tions for them or anyone else. If the $100 could be f'llly appropriated for the hook and 'ur company, I don't know that I sh )•,d say anything, but as it can't be I am kicking. P. B. Wickham of Morton county: While in Ne^ Rockford I tried to in duce Dave Wellman to go into the sheep business. There is money in it. Dave Wellman: Have put in over 700 acres of wheat this spring. It looks well. Last year went in the hole over $1,500. If we get a crop this year will make it all back and more too. Worked from daylight to nine o'clock every night. Took a nap—it seemed like—then up aud at it again. Farmers feeling pretty good up our way.- Little going on in politics. Rube Winslow: Was out in the hills four days last week. Caught in the rain and nowhere near shelter for two days, Soaked? Well I should say so. Ate raw pork and dry bread—couid'nt light a fire. Finally struck an empty sheep herder's shack with everything fixed for baching. Maybe we—John Ahrens and I—did'nt stay there, dry off and eat. Sloughs all full of water in the hills. Judge Hull in Bismarck Tribune: I went into Nebraska aud settled in the county where I now live eighteen years ago. We had drouth and grasshoppers and were knocked out for several years. Now the country is all right, and sold over 16,000 bushels of corn off of my farm last year. Without any dispar agement to my own state, I will say that to all appearances yon have a better soil in North Dakota along the line I travel ed, than anything this side of southern Texas. Mind what I say, those who stick as we did in Nebraska, will come out all right. Voicing Public Opinion. Bismarck Tribune: While sensational journalists are pleased to publish long accounts of "wire cutting" at the time of the lottery discussion and connect the name of A. J. McCabe with it, that gen tleman is attending to his duties as division superintendent and enjoying the confidence of his superiors. No person mark these words—no person except a moral hypocrite who sold out both sides on the lottery question, believes Mr. Mc Cabe guilty of cutting wires. Carrington Independent: In last Sat urday's Minneapolis Journal three col umns of space was given up for the pur pose of trying to prove that Superintend ent McCabe was connected with the lot tery gang, charging that on the night of February 4th he caused the wires to be cut and important anti-lottery messages were held back in the interest of those who were favorable to the passage of the lottery bill. Superintendent McCabe is one of the most popular superintendents this division has ever had and his many friends are justly indignant at this at tempt of an outside paper to blacken his well earned reputation. It will take more evidence than that offered by the Journal to make people think that A. J. McCabe is as black as he has been pic tured by this would-be-sensational paper. Reliable Hail Insurauce. The LaMoure County hail insurance company is one of the old reliable local companies of the state. It is time tried and loss tested. For three years it has done most of the insuring of crops in that county and always met all losses promptly and adjusted them with liber ality. The company seems to have the confidence of the farmers. E. M. Whit man, the present county clerk of that county, has been the secretary of the company for three years. Ihe officers are all reputable business men and tax payers and the company deserves its good name and growing business. A Practical Test. Interest in artificial irrigation has sub sided for the present, but the following from a correspondent of the Aberdeen Republican of the 5th inst. is still wor thy of attention. The result of the ex periment will be awaited with much in terest: I visited the Harrison farm, south of town, yesterday, the capital committee courteously driving me out to show the wonderful well recently put down for ir rigating purposes. The well is a good one and no mistake. It is a four-inch bore and has about the flow and pressure of the Aberdeen well. The water is clear. The farm is a very rough one, with many gumbo spots, which are not bene fitted by irrigation. The work of mak ing the ditches is just begun and the uneven surface will make it very expen sive. In one place the water is carried by a flume 800 feet over a ravine, with a fall of one foot, and two-thirds of the well's flow will keep it running full. It is thought the well will irrigate 2,000 acres, and, if so rough and inferior a farm can be made to pay by irrigating, there are fortunes awaiting the Brown county farmers in the same business.
