Kx-speuker Keifer What the D.-mo-erats
In Congress May 1.
Chraco, Jan. Kespnnsive to tlie
call of Frances Willard there was a nicet
intc at the Sherman house yesterday of
representatives of the Peoples, the Na
tional Keforni and Prohibition parties. A
triple alliance is contemplated. Among
those present were General J. 1$. Weaver,
Of Iowa; (Jennie 1". Washburn. Boston, sec
retary of the People's party; Mrs. Anna
IiKg, Kansas, IYohibitionist; Gilbert
Delaniatcr. Akron, C, Ureenbacker; K. J.
Wheeler, editor of The Voice; II. E. Tau
beneck, chairman of the national commit
tee of the Granger political organizations;
Ignatius Donnelly, of the Farmers' Alli
ance. Ignatius Donnelly- presented a constitu
tion for a new political party, which he had
prepared. This was approved, and will be
presented as an address to the meeting of
the People's party to Iks held at St. Iouis
Feb. 22. No one i:i the conference consid
ered himself bound by the address. There
seemed to be a strung belief, however,
among the delegates that a new political
party will result from the labors of Mr.
Donnelly. The propositions laid down in
the address are these:
1. That money should be issued by the
general government, without the interven
tion of any private institutions, in suf
ficient quantity to cany on tlie business of
the country, and such money should be a
full legal tender for all debts, both public
Iroii1ition ami Woman SnftVasc.
2. That the saloon is the groat enemv of
reform in these matters. As the chief
fountain of corruption in our politics, vc
denounce its pernicious influence upon our
country and demand its suppression.
All means of public, transportation
and communication should be Controlled
by the government to obtain for all the
people equal and suitable advantages in
such services; and, if the effort. to so con
trol said means of transportation and com
munication shall prove impracticable, th.cn
we favor government ownership of the
4. That wo are opposed to speculation in
land, and alien owiier-hip of same, and we
demand a reasonable limitation of the
amount of land that can be owned by any
corporation or individual.
5. 1 hat we favor municipal suffrage for
women with an educational qualification.
lue foregoing was signed bv a commit
tee composed of IgnatiusDonnelly.Frances
Willard, .T. 15. Weaver. E. J. Wheeler, G. M.
Miller, E. Evans, and U.S. Taylor, and
it was passed without a dissenting voice.
laubeueck and ashhuru refrained from
voting, saying that they were confident
that the plank, on the prohibition question
would not be acceptable to the People's
party. They favor a plan of nationalizing
the liquor traffic. The following were ap
pointed to present the address to the St.
ixiuis convention: Dr. G. Delamater.
Frances Willard, G. W. Miller. .1. B.
Weaver, Ignatius Donnellv, Samuel Dickie
and E. .1. Wheeler.
Mls Willard's I.lea.
According to Miss Willard the time for
political action is ripe. Alone, the Prohi
bition party and the Women's Christian
Temperance union cannot elect a president
of t he l"n i ted States. Prohibit ion, how
ever, allied to all the other isms of the
country, can go into the light with hopes
of success. So said Miss Willard, and it
is her scheme to affiliate all these conflict
ing elements, marshal t hem under one ban
ner and had them on to victorv.
COMMENTS ON HILL POLITICS.
Some ec. -iiuper Criticism on 1 lie situu-
in New York.
Nfcw Yonii, .Tan. is. Commenting on
the selection by the Democratic state com
mittee of Albany as the place and Feb. 23.
as the date for the Democratic slate con
vention The World says: "A delegation
from New York, chosen after only twenty
six days' notice, three nii'iiths earlier than
the convention in S. Unj four months in
advance of that of 1SS4, can hardly com
mand the respect at Chicago which would
belong to a delegation chosen at the usual
time, in the customary manner and after
a lull and free canvass of t he Democrat ic
Thinks Hill Has Maile a Mistake.
Seuntor Hill will have a united delega- .
tiou. from New York at the national con
vention. Neverthel 'ss we think that Sen
ator Hill, who so seldom errs in matters
political, has made a mistake." The Times
says: '"The Hill managers undoubtedly
congratulate themselves, and with reason,
on their control of the party machinery.
They have yet to learn that there is a wide
difference between the power to nominate
and the power to elect."
HILL'S CHANCE IN THE WEST.
Ex-Speaker Keifer Thinks It Is Xot as
Bright as Might Be.
Chicago, Jan. 2S. -HUl, no doubt, con
trols Xew York state, but he will not have
such an easy time capturing the west,"
said J. Warren Keifer, ex-speaker of the
house of representatives, at the Grand Pa
cific hotel yesterday. From what I gather
in Ohio and other western states, there
isu't a great deal of Hill sentiment among
the people, and the west will be dead
against him. Opposition to Hill in Ohio is
juite noticeable, and I think the prevail
ing sentiment there ,and in states farther
west is for Cleveland;-.
. Cleveland Not Wirepulling.
"There is a strong belief among Demo
crats, and this belief is growing, that the
candidate should come from the west
Cleveland ami his friends have allowed
Hilt to capture everything in New York,
and in my opinion Cleveland's inaction is
an indication that he doesn't care for the
Domination and will give notice to bis
friends that be isn't seeking the honor. Of
course Cleveland isn't the kind of a politi
cian wnose menus can lo any great
amount of wirepulling for him, and this,
no doubt, is one reason why Hill and his
friends have taken such complete posses
sion of Xew York.
Drifting to Harrison.
There is plenty of presidential ti inner
in the west, for the Democrats to choose
from, and if Palmer wasn't quite so old
and a trifle less stubborn be no doubt
could make a stt .tg bid for the nomina
tion.'' Mr. Kiefer thinks the sentiment in the
Republican party is drifting rapidly to
ward Harrison. His message on the
Chilian imbroglio was issued just in time,
he said, and, no doubt, will help him in
his candidacy. ''There are plenty of Blaine
boomers in the country," lie said, "but the
solM element seems to be for Harrison."
OF NO POLITICAL SIGNIFICANCE.
Meeting of the National Farmers' Alli
ance Fuss Over Credentials. ,
Chicago, Jan. 28. The twelfth annual
meeting of the National Farmers' Alliance
began in Farwell hall at 10 o'clock yester
day morning. About 100 members of the
organizat ions of Hhe western and central
Ftates were present. Upon the platform
beside the president, Hon. J. H. Powers,
of Cornell, Xeb., and Secretary Tro Tern.
W. E. Bell were City Comptroller May and
Chief of Police McClaughry. May soon
indicated what he was there for by stepping
forward to introduce Chief McClaughry,
who in a brief speech welcomed the dele
gates to the city, in place of Mayor Wash
burne, who is cast.
Iowa Makes a Trot est.
P'vsidcnt. Powers responded and then
announced that the first business was the
appointment of a credentials committee.
This was done one member from each state
represented and a recess was taken to 3
p. in. President Powers declared positive
ly that the meeting had no political sig
nificance whatever. "It is simply a busi
ness meeting, anil the chief thing to be
done is the election of officers," he said.
When the convention reassembled a wran
gle arose over the report of the committee
on credentials which set forth that Ne
br."sk,t. entitled to seventeen delegates,
l ad sent twenty-four, and recommending
that t he cct ire dt legat iou be seated. Iowa
made a mighty protest, and the light was
kept up ail the afternoon. A compromise
was finally effected by which twenty dele
gates were seated.
Closing Invents of the Session.
A resolutions committee was then ap
pointed, as well as other committees, and
recess was taken to evening. At the even
ing session "Education"' was discussed by
several invited Scakcrs. among whom
were Ignatus Donnelly: Mrs. A. NT. Ken
dall, of Illinois; Miss Elizabeth Harrison,
mid Miss Josephine l.ncke. of Chicago,
nd Mrs. J. A. Trait, Nebraska. The real
work of the convention will begin today.
Ilonncllt Disease and Kciurdv.
During his sp,.t.,, Ignatius Donnelly
eaid: "What is tlie trouble with the
world? Machinery now permits man to
produce live times more than in former
times. Who Is benefited? Where has the
profit of increiiseil production gone? To
the producer? Xo. He is poorer today
than he was fifty years ago. The profits
have gone to them that toil not."
Mr. Donnelly continued on his favorite
(heme for some time, and concluded bv de
claring that the remedy existed onlv in the
Denirratie Tariff Position.
Washington. Jan. as. It is Ix-lirved the
policy of declaring the position of the
Democratic house on the tariff and silver
question by means of a series of resolu
tions will lie- adopted by the Democratic
Niucus. The fight in the caucus, if there
is a light, will probably ) over the char
acter of the resolutions. The Hill men
will want a weak document designed to
keep all classes in the fold, while the tariff
reformers viU desire a plain definition of
the party posit itlI1 ,,,, i ,e tariff. This
resolution plan is to be in lieu i.iiy con
gressional enact incut on the subjcc.s.
