President of the Minnesota Alli­
ance Talks About the Wheat
Gantloas Them Afalnst Being
Tools of Either Bull or Bear
But to Use Their Own Judgment As to
When to Sell—Not Endorsed by
Minnesota's Alliance.
-To hold wheat or
ftot to hold it, that is the question at
present, vnd it appears to be a question
upon which the Alliance leaders are
much divided. The National Alliance,
with headquarters at Washington, de­
vised the plan of sending out circulars
to Farmers' Alliance men throughout
the wheat raising districts of the coun­
try, advising the holding of wheat for
better prices. The work is now in pro­
gress. most of it being done from St.
Paul on account of its location in the
centre of the great wheat belt.
W. H. Ayer, secretary to President
Polk, in an interview at Washington,
said that there have already been
400,000 of these circulasr sent out from
Washington, and that during the next
few days an average of more than
100.000 a day .will be mailed until more
than 1,000,000 circulars altogether are
issued. The circular, he said, will also
be published in about 2,000 weekly
papers with Which the bureau is con­
nected. Whether or not the circular
would have the desired effect he could
not say, but he thought it was already
being felt in the receipts at wheat cen­
Mr. Donnelly's View*.
But now comes Ignatius Donnelly,
president of the Minnesota Farmers'
Alliance, with a circular to the farmers
of the state. It is quite along docu­
ment, and not at all Accord with the
National Alliance circular. After ex­
pressing the hope that the scheme may
turn out fully as bright as it is painted,
lie says:
But I realize that when a few men
undertake, without proper pre-concert
and ^consultation, to affect the price of
great staple like wheat, and do it,,
.either directly or indirectly, in the
Farmers' Alliance, they are entering
upon a tremendous and dangerous ex­
periment. which may not only in its re­
coil crush them, bat injuriously affect
the Alliance itself. I desire, therefore,
to have it distinctly understood that the
State Farmers' Alliance of Minnesota is
in no wise responsible for this move­
ment, or for any conseqnence that may
flow from it. The time is not far dis­
tant when the whole fanning popula­
tion of the United States shall be
banded together for self protection, and
to resist the efforts of speculators to
break down the real value of their pro­
ductions but to do this through con­
sultation and wise action are necessary,
together with the establishment of some
bureau that will direct the sales other­
wise some farmers would get out at
extravagant prices and others be caught
in the collapse of the boom. I see Sir.
Pillsbury, the great miller of Minneapo­
lis, declares that wheat will touch $2 a
bushel within the next twelve months.
I understand that the English syndicate,
owing to the Minneapolis mills, now
hold 18,000,000 bushels of wheat. If the
price of wheat goes up 20 cents under
the holding back of the new crop, those
gentlemen would realize $3,000,000 and
get out. In the meantime the farmers,
who are hoping for $2 a bushel
Would Be Caught In the Slump,
and might have to sell in the spring at
ruinously low rates. And then every
farmer in the state would turn upon and
denounce the Farmers' Alliance, and
our great organization would be de­
stroyed. And' then the cry would go
forth, "why did not our president warn
us of these lawyers? He must have said
out to the syndicate!"
Where farmers can avoid rushing
their wheat into market, they should do
so by all means but let them keep
their eyes open, and do not become the
tools of bulls or bears either. In any
event, understand clearly that the
Alliance gives you no advice and is not
responsible for the mutations of the
For the present the interests of the
millers are identical with the interests
«f the farmers in the great secret
and world-embracing battle which is
now raging, and we should do what we
reasonably can to help them in their
efforts to advance the price of our great
cereal. But this is a world of selfisn in­
terests, and we must watch ever our
The Alliance President Says the Issue Is
Not the Tariff and Free Coinage.
Polk, of the Farmers Alliance, has just
returned from his Southern tour. Mr.
Polk said he had been quoted incorrectly
as saying that the great issue was the
tariff and free coinage and that with
these issues the Alliance would all
rally around the sub-treasury bill.
"Now," he said, "the issue is not the
tariff, the free coinage of silver, nor the
sub-treasury bill. The issue is the re­
form of our financial system and neither
vthe issuance of more money nor the
collection of less taxes would alone do
the people any good. The entire finan­
cial system of the government must be
changed before anything else that may
be done can correct the existing evils."

A Special Meeting of the Western fu
senger Association Called.
are beginning to find o«t that it is not
the most desirable thing in the world to
have the Chicago and Alton out of the
Western Passenger association and at
liberty to make what rates may suit
them. Thursday the Chicago and Al­
ton announced a round trip of $6.50
from Kansas City to St. Louis. The
Wabash has already out the rate from
St. Louis to Detroit and return with the
privilege of returning via Chicago to $8.
Consequently the Alton announces a
through round trip rate from Kansas
City to Detroit and return via
the direct route through Chi­
cago of #14.50. The Ohio and
Mississippi has announced around trip
rate between St. Louis and Cincinnati
of #10.50. In connection with the Ohio
and Mississippi the Alton has announced
a round trip rate of #1? between Kansas
City and Cincinnati. The Atchison will
meet the Chicago and Alton rates
wherever it comes into competition
with that road and will use the #24.50
round trip rate from Kansas City to
Detroit as abasing rate from all points
on its lines west of Kansas City. Chair­
man Finley has called a special meeting
of the Western Passenger association
for Saturday morning to consider the
situation and especially rates for the
Grand Army, both of which are in a
very critical shape.
An Important Decision Rendered In the
United States District Court.
Ga., July
A California Landlady Has Bundle of
Letters She'll Give UD for S50.000.
July 25.—Publication
has been made of the fact that a bundle
of letters written by Justice Field and
Francis J. Newlands, Senator Sharon's
son-in-law, and bearing on peculiar pro­
cedure in the Sharon divorce case,
were in the hands of Mrs. Sarah Mitch­
ell, the landlady of Newland's confiden­
tial agent Charles Livingstone. It is
said that the woman wants #50,000 for
these letters, as she declares they are
worth that money, should she deliver
them to Sarah Althea. She faints that
they reveal many compromising trans­
actions in the Sharon case, especially
after the senator's death, but young
Sharon and Newland's both assert that
no snch letters are in existence. Justice
Field also says that she may print any
letters of his which she holds. The
case excites much attention here be­
cause of the mystery that has always
hung around the Sharon case, and be­
cause of the general belief that the
court was influenced by Sharon money.
A Collision at Carlisle. Colo., In Which
Four Are Killed and Several Injured.
Colo., July 25.—The narrow
gauge, east-bound express, from Salida,
Colo., on the Denver and Rio Grande
railroad collided with the broad guage
Salt Lake express going west, a few
miles from Carlisle, in the early morn­
ing. The trains were running at full
speed and were heavily loaded. The
engine and front coaches of both trains
were completely wrecked and four per­
sons were killed. The killed are:
George A. Ardell, engineer A. H. Par
ros, conductor C. M. Cole, express mes­
senger, and an unknown tramp. The
injured are: Ben Williams, H. C. Mul
nix, Henry Schumer, R. Robinson, news
agent H. C. Gibson, C. M. McAdams,
mail messenger.
Salvationists May Parade.
London cable
announces the arrival in that city of
President Van Home of the Canadian
Pacific railroad. It states that the ob­
ject of Van Home's visit is to arrange
for the pooling of the receipts of the
jtrand Trunk and the Canadian Pacific.
Gilfiilan has handed down a decision in
the Red Wing Salvation Army habeas
corpus case. Moore, the head of the
Red Wing army, was arrested for beat­
ing a drum, contrary to an ordinance of
the city council. The chief justice holds
the ordinance invalid, inasmuch as it
places the whole matter of license to
parade the streets in the hands of the
chief of police, who might deny the
right to one and grant it to another,
with no better reason than caprice. The
law, the chief jastice says, must operate
on all persons alike.
Blaine and Cleveland the Leaders.
-Chief Jus­
tice Fuller, who is at Tacoma, said in
an interview Wednesday: "There is a
great deal of talk about Blaine in the
East as a presidential candidate and the
man from Maine is plainly the leader of
the party. Harrison's administra­
tion has been successful, but
I believe a great deal of its popularity is
due to James G. Blaine. He is a re­
markable man and it would not sur-
me to see Blaine and Cleveland
of the next political battle.
Peace In the A Ir.
July 25.—There are offi­
cial whispers of peace in the air as
regards the fight now waging between
the American association and the Na­
tional league. The association people
are tired of the fray and it is said that
President Kramer, of that body, has
declared that the war must end even if
he has to make the first offer of peace.
This decision on the part of the associa
tion people will delignt every true lover
of the same.
A Letter to Be Sent from the Bishops
of the United States to His
Thanking Him for His Position In the
Capensljr Matter—How They
View It
Some of Them In Favor of Teaching
Nothing But English In the
Public Schools.
Speer, in the United States district
court for the Southern district of
Georgia, has rendered an important de­
cision in the case of Turner C. Thomas,
administrator, vs. The American Free­
hold Land and Mortgage Company, of
New York. This company lends money
to fanners and takes mortgages on land
so secure payment. Under the terms of
the agreements the company had the
right to foreclose on failure to meet a
note when due. This was done in the
Thomas case, and judgment was entered
up in the United States court according
to the terms of agreement. Adminirtra
tor Thomas brought a motion to set aside
the judgment and sale made there­
under, on the ground that the contract
was conditional, and though no defense
was filed, the court could not enter
judgment, except on the verdict of a
jury declaring that the conditions had
been violated. The case was argued
some weeks ago, and Judge Speer has
rendered a decision sustaining the above
position. Hundreds of similar judg­
ments have been taken throughout this
section, and the decision will probably
give rise to extensive litigation.
Md.. July
to The Sun from Cape May says: "At
the next meeting of the Catholic heir
archy of the United States, a letter of
thanks will be sent to the pope in the
name of the bishops of the country,
thanking him for having rejected the
petition of Herr Capensly and his asso­
ciates. The heirarchy looks on the me­
morial as an unwarrantable interference
with the business of the Catholic church
of the United States. To a man the
bishops were against it. It was believed
that the scheme would bring ruin
and anarchy where peace now ex­
ists. The consequences of two bishops
in the same territory would be
disastrous. The position is considered
an insult to the American hierarchy and
the bishops were prepared to resent it if
necessary. It is more than likely that
in some sections of the country the lay­
men would have been called upon to as­
semble in mass meeting and denounce
the work of the meddlers. The bishops,
individually and collectively, believe
there should be no race in the United
Stales, and some of them are in
favor of the government taking
positive action in suppressing the
teaching of any language in
any school but the English language.
The trouble over the Capensly petition
it is said, grew out of the scheming of a
clique of Catholics of foreign birth in
this country who have been endeavoring
to perpetrate this foroign idea in the
United States. Since tbe rejection by
the pope of the petition it is believed
the instigator of it in this country was
moved by hopes of seif aggrandizement.
If there is any one characteristic of
the heirarchy of the Catholic church
more prominent than another it is
American and to make it such Cardinal
Gibbons has been laboring for years..
He believes that every Catholic bishop
should be a patriotic, because he is a
large property holder and his country's
interests are here. Secondly, the Cath­
olic bishop is a leader of the people,
and should in his life and work show
the character of patriotism. Archbishop
Ireland has joined Cardinal Gibbons.
He arrived in time to be present at a
dinner given by Mr. Cockrel Thorns, of
Philadelphia in honor of the Fifty
seventh anniversary of Cardinal Gib­
bons birth.
A Friend of Secretary Blaine Says He
Will Accept the Nomination.
July 25.—The Tribune pub­
lishes the following: Captain William
A. Gavette. of this city, has received an
important letter from J. H. Manley, ef
Augusta, Me., in response to a letter
written by him on the 18th inst. The
subjects of inquiry on the part of Mr.
Gavette were the health of Secretary
James G. Blaine and his attitude affect­
ing the earnest desire of a multitude of
his admirers in the opinion of the party
to become its standard bearer in x892.
The replies are especially significant
when it is remembered that Mr. Manley
has for years been a warm personal
friend and the political helmsman and
advisor of Blaine. In effect Mr. Manley
says that Mr. Blaine has almost fully
regained his health and that he will re­
turn to Washington in the fall with all
his vigor and strength of both mind and
body. Briefly stated, it is learned from
Mr. Manley that the distinguished sec­
retary, in tne event of the Republican
party nominating him as their standard
bearer, will accept tbe nomination if
coming unanimously from that party.

ing statistics as to the volume of busi­
ness that may be expected from each
island. His report has been submitted
to a London syndicate and it is under­
stood that the necessary capital is at

The Secretary's Quaruutlne el Teune
Cattle Regarded as Intensely Sectional.
says: "Tennessee cattle dealers and
growers are very much incensed and ex­
cited over the recent order of Secretary
Rusk of the United States bureau of
agriculture, establishing quarantine re­
lations against Tennessee cattle except
for immediate slaughter, and declaring
to the world that a contagious and in­
fectious disease known as splenetic fever
exists in this and other Southern states.
The statement, so far as it relates to
Tennessee, is false and will have the ef­
fect of killing the cattle industry of tbe
state, if not entirely so as to exempt this
territory from the destructive provis­
ion of the order. Tennessee cattle are
not infected with splenetic fever or
pleuro-pneumonia, and the secretary's
order is regarded as exceedingly arbi­
trary and unjust, and intensely sectional
and purely to the interest ot the Western
cattle growers and the beginning of a
commercial warfare against the South.
Cattle dealers here and growers will
make an effort with the aid of a United
States senator who has air* :idy inter­
ested himself in the matter, to have the
secretary modify his invidious ruling."
miiniesora insurance freniium*.
July 25.—The state auditor

paid to the cities and towns which have
tire departments and in wfcich these in­
surance companies do business. This
money is at present available. Of this

work here, was totally destroyed by
fire at 4:30 a. m. Captain Hayes was
the first to discover the fire, but so
rapid was its spread that it was with
difficulty that his wife and children
were saved. The loss is total, as Cap­
tain Haves carried no insurance. His

Bus Beady to Take Their Places
Driven Into Barracks—Several
Companies Credited with Inciting a
General Strike In Order to Brlnf
In Cheap Labor.
Pa., July 24.—A strike
and serious riot occurred at 6 p. m. at
the Nottingham colliery of the Lehigh
and Wilkesbarre Coal company,wherein
several persons were hurt. It is feared
that it is the precursor of troublous
times in the coal regions. On Monday
last the coal company brought here a
carload of foreign laborers,and Tuesday
more carloads came in after nightfall.
The new men were all recent importa­
tions of the lowest type of Slavic race.
As a gang of fifty men who enter the
mine every night to clear the gangways
were about to descend in the shaft to
begin their work, they were informed
that the rate of wages would henceforth
be reduced from $1.68 to $1.25 per day.
Those employed in the gang are all
Americans. The men held a consulta­
tion and unanimously

As soon as it was definitely known that
the rock men would not co into the
mine Foreman Connor dispached a mes­
sage to the ban acks,where the company
had installed their recent importations,
and in a few minutes a body of newly
arrived Huns were entering the colliery
yards, every man in anew working out­
fit which had been provided by the com-
iany. Their appearance was the signal
an outburst of hooting and groans
for the men were waiting to see tne out­
come of the affair. As the new men,

and pieces of coal fell upon them. The
throwing of missiles continued until
several of the Huns dropped. At this
time a leader among the sympathizers
suggested that the men be driven to
their barracks and a bold rush was
made, sticks being freely used on the
unfortunate Huns who v/ere routed.
The Hun9 have barricaded themselves
in their barracks, and, as they are en­
tirely friendless it is probable that the
company will take them in the mines
under strong guards. Seven men sus­
tained serious cuts and contusions. It
is the general impression that the com­
pany's wish is to foment a general strike
and fill the mines with cheap labor.
Coal Creek Miners Will Lay Down Arms
if the Lease Law is Repealed.
July 24.—The miners of
Coal Creek valley now pause to con­
sider. They are not as anxious to fight
as they were a few days ago, when only
a handful of men opposed them. The
governor had hardly reached the city
when a committee was at his feet, pray­
ing indulgence and begging for further
time. They say that they think that
they will induce their insurgent army
to lay down tneir arms and allow the
convicts to return to the mines if the
governor will promise to call an extra
session of the legislature and ask that
the lease law be repealed. A commit­
tee of citizens of this city met the gov­
ernor with the miners and joined in the
appeal. The governor has given them
until afternoon to restore order and al­
low the law to take its course in Coal
Creek valley. If it is not done by that
time he will have the troop go to the
scene and'maintain the diginity of the

The troops are anxious to move and set­
tle the question as to who is the biggest,
the ttate of Tennessee or the miners of
Anderson county. They are thoroughly
disgusted with the attitude of the peo­
ple of this section and are not back­
ward in expressing themselves. A mass
meeting has just broken up and the
people are running through the streets
yelling, "Hurrahfor the miners." The
feeling is becoming intense and if the
governor is inclined to peaceful meas­
ures, such conduct will change his reso­
lution. Owing to mditions General
Carnes is enforcing 1 gid discipline and
the soldiers are demeaning themselves
quietly. Onlv a few who are on special
missions can be found on the streets.

J. C. Watson, chairman of the Repub­
lican state central committee, that
General Thayer, who was declared gov­
ernor after the failure of James E. Boyd
to qualify for the position, could not
hold over and that the committee would
shortly be called together for the pur­
pose of considering the nomination.
The chairman states that he is con­
fident Thayer cannot hold over, and says
that the ablest lawyers in the state have
taken a similar position. The matter
has been submitted to the attorney
general. This announcement compli­
cates matters, in view of the fact that
the Republican supreme court rather
intimated in the quo-warranto proceed­
ings against Boya that Thayer would
hud over until 1892. This idea is in
line, however, with Alliance and Demo­
cratic ideas and it is now quite certain
that Nebraska will be disturbed by
fierce political combat at the approach­
ing election.
