Farmers Alliance state convention
adjourned last evening after a very
stormy sessioD. A motion was made
to select three delegates to third party
convention to be held at .bllensburg,
and to pay their expenses out of the
Sta'e Alliance treasury. President

The convention was again called to
order by a vice president, three
delegates were elected to the third

that he will expose the Alliance for
its political demonstrations, and nays
that it cinnot be successful unless

he contracted a cold, which upon his

The ex-governor at once took to his
room, and the family physician ha3
since been in constant attendance.
The appearance of pneumonia was
daily feared, but last night Mr. Hoad
ley's secretary said to a reporter tint
the danger had been averted and that
the ex-governor would uuduubttdly be
out again in a week or ten days.
New York, Nov. 21. A morning
paper prints this : "Grovcr Cleve
land authorizes the statement that he
is taking no part in the contest for
speakership of the house ; so he is as
much a friend of one candidate as he
is of any other ; that he has never de
clared himself as favoring Mr. Mills
more than Mr. Crisp or Mr. Springer
or Mr. McMillan, and that he has
not made and does not intend making
any suggestion in respect to the or
ganization of the house of representatives."
Hon. Richard T. Gentry, of S.da
lia, is one of the best known, brilliant
and progressive young business men
of Missouii, and inherits the ability
and integrity of one of the most hon
orable and progressive families of this
state. He was born in Pettis county,
Missouri. His boyhood days were
passed at his father 'a farm, and after
receiving the advantages of a thor
oughly practical education, in his
native county, be came to at. louis
and entered upon a scientific course
of study, at Washington Univer.-ity,
and graduated from that celebrated
institution ot learning in dune, lot 1.
He then returned to bis home, and
soon after entered a bank, at Sedalia,

ant cashier, and finally cashier of the
bank. His experience through all of
the gradations ot hanking, and natur
al inclination for financial affairs, fit
ted him for the difficult and responsi
ble duties of cashier.
Mr. Gentry comes of a family stock
that ranks among the first of any
state. His father. Major William
Gentry, was a noted and extensive
farmer and stockman and widely
known for his superior intelligence,
as well as familiarity with the leading
public questions of the times. His
name has frequently been mentioned
in connection with that of chief ma-
gistry of the state, and if he had been
elected to that position he would have
discharged i's important obligations
with distinguished ti lelity to the pub
lic interests.
In 1878 Mr. Gentry was elected ti
the oliice of treasurer of Pettis con t r
and served two years. So well satis
fied were the people with lus admin
istration of that office that he wa rc
elected in 1832, serving another full
term. During his official term as
treasurer he successfully funded the
couuty indebtedness, and made no
charge for that extra and speciil
In 1884 he was a candidate for the
office of state treasurer before the
Democratic Couvension, and was de
cidedly the s'rongest of any single
candidate for the nomination, hut a
combination was entered into which
he secured hisdefeit. Ilia admirable
qualifications for tint office were fully
acknowledged, but the distribution of
offices militated against his candidacy.
He received the undivided support of
the St. Louis delegation in that con
vention. He is again a candidate for
that office and his nomination is al
most assured.
During the past year Mr. Gentry
lus visited different sections of tl.e
''new south," and among other points
Birniinghmi, where he mide exten
.ive investments in real estate; Nash

Rock, Ark., and Wichita, Kansas.
In Sedalia he owns large properties.
One of his leading characteristics,
and worthy of a generous heart, is his
strong and tender affection for his
sisters ; they are accomplished, beau
tiful and highly educated ladies
They have earist and devotional
natures, and fully reciprocate the
affection which the fondness of a
brother lavishes upon them. HarJly

St. Petersburg, November 21.
Contrary to the announcement made
a few days ago that nothing further
would be done in connection with the
question of export wheat from Russia
until the czar's return from Livadia
early in December, an ukase from his
majesty was issued to-day prohibiting
the exp'oit of wheat and wheat pro
ducts from Russia. Ihis prohibition,
which will go into effect on Monday
next, will be executed under the same
conditions as those governing the
prohibition recently decreed against
the export of oats.
Ever since the Russian wheat crop
was harvested and it became definitely
known that there was au enormous
shortage in the breadstuff's supplies of
the country the trade circles of the
world have been held in a state of
uncertainty by innumerable rumors
that Russia would prohibit wheat
exports. At the beginning of the
season a prohibitory decree would
probably have advanced wheit in
Englmd and America 20 cents a
bushel or more. For a long time a
mere rumor of prohibition would set
the market wild. New York traders
took advantage of this nervous con
dition of the market to send all sorts
of line? to Chicago regarding Russian
prdiibiuonto influence the market.
Tne Chicago traders finally refused
to be alarmed by these reports and
even the confirmation of the issuance
of the decree had liitle effect on the
markets to-day.
The greatest shortage in Russian
breadstuffs is in the rye crop, which
is 153 million bushels less than last
year according to the latest estimates
of the Russian government. It is
generally conceded in grain circles,
however, that the crop figures have
been greatly exaggerated by the gov
ernment for political and financial
reasons. Rye and flour exports were
prohibited July 20, but the decree
diil not go into effect for a mouth and
iu that time about 20 million bushels
of rye were shipped out of the country.
On October 16 another decree was
issued prohibiting the exportation of
all other cereals, potatoes, flour, paste,
and baked bread baked, excepting
only wheat.
The present decree prohibits ex
ports ot wheat and wheat flour, so
that now no grain or breadstuffs of
any kind can be shipped out of the
czar's kingdom.
The English crop statisticians
estimated early in the season that
Rus-da cou'd spare from 48 million to
5G million bushels of wheat for
exportation. The exports thus far
amount to about 32 million bushels,
so that the prohibition, coming so
laie, is not expected to hive much
elf ct on the markets.
