I told him we proposed to and he asked when, I said as soon as we could pos sibly get around to it as all all the men we could get were busy track laying and grading. He asked me if I would give .him a letter to the council setting forth our determination to com ply with the council's orders, and I did. I wrota it and gave it to him and he as sured me he would present it. He surely must haye forgotten that conversation with me and the possession of the letter, hut I gave it to him nevertheless and at his request at that."

Peffer in the Presidential Race. j XewYobk, July 22. Just Wore Sam' Small left town Monday he had a few i hings to say about the politics of the houth. "The Alliance brother," said Mr. Small, with a sweep of the arm, "is a horse t hat is galloping through the south with Kreat energy. The rank and file of the southern Democracy are under the Alli ance banner. They don't want a third party. The Democratic party is the party tf the people. They are the people, and t hey have a few planks which they want to see in the platform of the people's par ty. They control seven or eight southern Hates and, as Democrats, they will send delegates to the national convention who will, as Democrats, ask that the AHUnce t octrine be considered. Georgia has S4,- (00 Alliance Dernocrts; Arkansas has T5.- C'JO. Nearly all the farmers in South Car- c una are for the Democracy and the Alliance." Prefer Palmer for President. "Have they come to any conclusion as to candidates?" So, I think not. They are against Hill tccau.se of his whisky record, aud they are opposed to Cleveland because of his ntti- tjde on the silver question. Their favor ite, if they nave any at all. is Johu ii. I 'aimer, of Illinois. They believe they can trust the old general. They like his stvle. resident Polk, of the National Alliauee, would get all the votes if he were a candi date for vice president." The Democratic Platform. "What do yon think will be the out come of the Alliance movement in nation al politics?" "I believe the Democrats will recognize the necessity of adopting a platform em bracing some of the Alliance planks. Tue L eurocrats will have an overwhelming majority in the next congress. The Alli- a ice leaven will work there. In rebru a ? next there will be a nai ional eont'er e ice of Allance men at Cincinnati. Con gress will have been in session for three n onths at that time. The conference will review the work of the Democratic congress n en, and the result will determine what the Alliance will do." Four Alliance Planks Called For. "What portion of the Alliance platform will the Alliance men iusist upon the Democrats adopting in return lor Alli ance support?" "There are four planks the Alliance will fi.slit for. They will want their land Han, free coinage, direct issue of treasury notes, and graduated income tax planks inserted ia the Democratic platform. Taey will be willing to postpone the con si leration of other planks." PEFFER HAS ASPIRATIONS. CALLED ON 60V. MERRIAM. The AnH-PHie Uglit Men at St. Paul Ob ' tain a Concession. St. Pa cl, July 23.
