THE HEIIALD The chances for Jay
Goulds pool were more Haltering a week
acothan they are today The more Goulds
plan is considered the more tho conserva
tive western presidents become convinced
that there is a colored individual in Jay
Goulds woodpile His placing tho Union
Pacific under the same general manage
ment a the Missouri Pacific has made
them suspicious and several of them have
come to tho conclusion that the Union Pa
cific is to bomjlked dry in the interest of
the Missouri Pacific and when that object
has been accomplished by Gould ho will
again drop his interest in the Union Pa
cific Another thing that created an im
pression tluit Jay Gould is animated by
the best of motives in urging the forma
tion of a trust or pool i his
acquiring a large i not con
trolling interest in tie Richmond
terminal By this acquisition Gould se
cures a connection with bis Missouri Pa
ciic at Cairo Ills and Arkansas Cit
which will enable him to direct the bulk
of the Missouri Pacifics through freight
from points west of Missouri river via the
abovenamed points The proposed pool is
not to extend west of St Louis and conse
4 Jentr all freight for Goulds Missouri
Pacific direct via Cairo and Arkansas City
and the Richmond terminal will be out
side of tho pool and at the same time ho
i 1 demand a largo proportion of the
traffic in the pool although he proposescto
put but little business in it He not only
proposes t keep all the traffic the Mis
sean Pacific commands out of the pool bj
sending it via Cairo and Arkansas City
but expects t get a full proportion of the
traffic commanded by the Missouri Pacifics
For this reason it is probable that a
pooling proposition will not go through but
that instead another gentlemens agree
mont will be adopted which is to cover al
the existing western associations with a
board of arbitration which is to decide al
disputed qnestions and the decisions
which they give shall be final

WASHINGTON D C Dee 13Special
telegram to THE HERALD The Senate
special committee which is wrestling with
the subject of financial legislatien had its
second meeting today It was finally de
cided after a two hours discussion that al
tho propositions advanced should be referred
ferred t a subcommittee of fe who
should report t the full committee of
eleven on Monday The subcommittee
cnsists of Sherman Aldrich Allison
Teller and Plumb They were in session
this afternoon and at a late hour this
evening they were still unable t
reach an agreement Senator Sher
man is showing a marked willing
ness to treat the silver men liberally
bat will hold out strongly for his inter
convertible 2 per cent bond scheme The
proposition is regarded with general favor
by the majority of the committee Mr
Power of Montana after some discussion
of the Sherman bill today offered an
amendment which he thinks will
strengthen the measure wilh the conserva
live classes The Power amendment pro
vides i that whenever notes retired under
the existing laws by national banks shall
aggregate 51000000 it shall be tho duty of
the secretary of the treasury to purchase
silver bullionjto the amount of 1000000
and pay for the saTne in United State
notes t be issued as provided for in
the act of July 1 IbCO Senator Mitchell
of Oregon who represents tho extreme I
silver idea proposed today that the secre

chase the 20000000 ounces of silver surplus
immediately and increase the monthly pur
chases to 0000000 ounces which would be
15U003 ounces more than now required by
law The silver men are doubtful a to the
lorm of the compromise which may b
reached but from the best information ob
tainable they will be satisfied with a 20000
0 immediate purchase and such monthly
purchases as may offset tho retirement of
national bank notes from circulation

A Farmers Alliance Plan to
Break i Up
The Conservative Members arc Azninst i
Federation otLabor Convention Finishes
its Business and Adjourns
JACKSONVILLE Fla Dee 13The Times
Union will publish tomorrow a lengthy ar
ticle concerning the recent Farmers alli
ance convention It says in part Since
the final adjournment at Ocala incontesti
ble proof has been brought out to show tho
existence of a gigantic plot to use the
national organization as a means of pro
meting a third party scheme The significant
cant fact is the vote of tho northwestern
I alliance men who aro mostly Republicans
i and who came to Ocala with the purpose of
forcing tho alliance to endorse their pet
scheme for a third party It soon became
apparent however that the indorsement
could not be secured and when the sub
treasury scheme came up tho northwestern
men were found solid in their support of it
although their political affiliations and the
sentiments of tho people they aro supposed
to represent wculd naturally have led to
open opposition to the measure The lead
ers in the third party movement from that
section are McGrath of Kansas Loucks of
North Dakota Warden of South Dakota
and Willetts of Kansas and they are
warmly supported by the delegates from
Wisconsin and other near by states
During a tour of the state which has
been progress the past four or five days
says the TuncsUmini these third party
plotters have unbosomed themselves to a I
certain extent in conversation with their
fellow excursionists and their admissions
laid bare tho political scheme
which has prompted their statements
which are to this effect They are really
opposed to the sub treasury bill regard it
as wrong in principle and as a legislative
devise which can bring only financial ruin
to the farmers and every other industrial
class that tho people of their section are
opposed to it and teat they as delegates
I were particularly charged viih a mission
to defeat the measure when they left
I their homes They say also that upon their
return home they will explain their action
in this way that tho subtreasury demand
is of such a nature that it can never gain
the support of the Democracy of
the southern states and that un
attempt to secure such Democratic
support can end only in a split in the Dem
ocratic ranks in the south This they say
will break up tho soiid south and this is
the end they had in view
In support of this general policy says
the article several of these plotters have
been placed upon record
Prtsident McGrath of Kansas is quoted
as saying We saw that by making tho
subtreasury bill the issue in tho south we
could break up the Democratic party
Willetts of Kansas is i quoted as saying
We supported the subtreasury bill to
I divide theoutbau4brelc uptbc bouiboir
lemocracy 2
The Reform Press association is also
dealt with at great length The article
states the third party men held
a meeting yesterday on the steamer going
to Louisville when it was resolved
to shut out newspapers which do
not advocate the subtreasury bill
and providing for the organization
of a legislative committee to designate
from tmo to time measures and demands
to be advocated by the Reform Press The
article goes on to say that conservative al
lance men were excluded from this meet
ing and that the reform press combination i
is only ono of many means by which the
third party issue is to bo forced upon the
alliance with the nope of dividing the
Democratic party of the south
The TllUI on says the determinrtion is
strengthening among southern Democrats
in the alliance that a desperate effort must
be made to pull the Farmers alliance away
from the subtreasury folly before the
next annual meeting A long interview is
published with one of the conservatives
who was excluded from the association in
which he states the Reform II CS association
tion is made up of third party men

others whoso names have notbeeii learned
were severely Injured Dickson was mar
