CHEAPER AND BETTER.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press has sprung
a pleasant surprise on its large family of
readers by making a great reduction in the
price of its Daily and Sunday editions
when a year's subscription is prepaid.
The new rates are as follnws, payment to
be made strictly in advance: Daily and
Sunday, one year, $8.50 Daily without
Sunday, one year, $7 Sunday only, one
year, $1.50. Ratesfor a less period remain
the same as before. This is a reduction of
from 15 to 25 per cent, and it means a
boom in circulation for the Pioneer Press.
A year's subscription now will carry you
through the Conventions, the Campaign,
the Election and Inauguration. The
Pioneer Press has so materially improved
in the past few months that it is more
than ever the representative Northwestern
paper. Many new features have been
adopted. Among others its Scandinavian
news, to which a column is devoted weekly:
its sporting and horse department, and
much new matter of merit.

The Farmers' Alliance was origin
ally helpful to the agricultural class,
and it had a large and growing in
fluence with our legislators and the
Republicna party, but in an evil hour it
listened to the advice of its unprinci
pled leaders who aimed at nothing
more than increased salaries and hon
ors for themselves and who promised
impossible benefits and, who, on behalf
of the farmers made the several im
possible and idiotic demands on the
grand old party. Knowing them to be
impossibilities and if possible not ben*
eficial, the Republican party refused
to consider them. Thus the Alliance
was pursuaded to turn itself into a po
litical machine and an open enemy ot
that party whose total record is a bene
fit to the producers. With its perfect
organization and ample revenues, and
little time tor discussion, it came near
capturing the executive departments
of several North-Western States but
it missed its mark in all of them,
Now nearly two years ot discussion
has followed and the foolishness of
their demands are shown and the de
ception and rascality of the leaders is
exposed. They and their patent reme
dies have been weighed and found want
ing. As the natural result the party is
weakening. That part which they are
still pleased to call the Alliance is
nearly broken up. Their pumping
machines are no longer workable.
Their revenues are reduced and they
are making pitiful appeals for direct
contributions. In Kansas they offer to
pool their interests with the Democrats.
In Minnesota they are broken into
hopeless factions. In this State $
part of the leaders are courting Demo*
cratic aid. They and all well informed
persons know that the party has passed
the meridian of its greatness. Hoping
yet to save their rotten float and like
drowning men that catch at straws, an(|
not caring for their principles as ad
vocated from the first, except as a
means of party success, Loucks and
some others have recently advocated
the throwing overboard of all their for*
mer dearly cherished planks save on$
and the editor of the Onida Journal,
who can advocate one thing this week
and denounces it in the following issue,
has promised to assist. He will also
probably try to dump Loucks with the
rest of the rubbish. Go in Gee Whiz,
neither of you can do the other any
political hurt. You are both past that
and emetics cannot save the party nor
can disinfectants sweeten the vicinity
of its carcass.
