Through the kindness of F. H. Hag

Owing to the fact that it is reported
that granite waa struck at a depth of
about 600 feet in the artesian well at
Vtlaa. there ia some discussion in this
city of the inadvusability of attempting
to aeoure an artesian wall in Madison,
city Ixmds to the amount of §10,000 hav
jng recently been voted for the purpose.
The pt»n suggested lata dhfert the bomis
to securing a water system by some
other method. Th* Pail* JLjuoku is
decidedly in favor of following the origi
nal plan of securing an artesian well if
poasibh. We habere it would be money
well expended to bore for ao arteaiau
well even if the oity waa not fortunate
enough to aecere a apouter. It would
be worth something to know what un

Huron dispjitch, 5: The farmers' alli
ance is »Uli in session and will continue
over until to-morrow. President
Loucka' addrsss adiled fuel to the flame
and the clamor of the organization tpr
a third party and tbe nomination of an
alliance ticket has been kept up the en
tire day. The opposition abandoned
tbe fight at noon and decided to let the
other crowd havo their way. After
roasting the railroad and telegraph com
panies, corporations, banks, etc., he
argued strongly in favor of a third party
saying 1 would suggest that aa there is
in Huron at the present time as fair a
representation of the farmers, mechan
ics, miners and laboring men aa can well
be brought together, and as we hav© in
our various assemblies and aiitanoes
thoroughly discuased this question, that
it would be quite appropriate for all
those who favor an indejenlcnt politi
cal party to meet together and organize
it If suqIi a party should adopt our
platform of principles, then I think all
true alliance men will support it. It
will not be open to the charge of a class

deieudant action wili not be held re

tion of indo}»enilenoe read in every
county of the state next Fourth of July.
This waa mure than the antis oould
bear and submit to gracefully. It ia
evident tonight aa soon aa the alliance
convention adjourns a political conven
tion will organ2xe composed of third
party advocates and a state, legislative
and congressional ticket nom muted.

not vote any ticket so created Efforts

A resolution has been give* to tbe
committee to the effect that any mem
ber of the alliance who lakes part in any
caucus or primary held by either the re
publicans or denujcrats, will forfeit hi*
privileges in the alliance. Thc^e is little
probability that this will pass. Mueli
speculation is indulged in aa to who will
