-Washisgtox, April 27, 1S91.
Col. L. L. Polk, president of the Na
tional Farmer Alliance,vho is in New
York on an 'educational mission, has
sent some news to Alliance headquarters j tural products of a stitple character
in this oty that has generally pieaseu j
tliose intereted in the growth of that
organiz ation. His success has bu
far be vol id his anticipation, and one
allianceman with whom I had a talk
was-eertain that the organiz ition wouhl
soon control the balance of power in
New York state and be in a position
where it could dictate fnns to the po
litical pai ties.
Senator Reagan's registration was
not a surm ise here as it had been con
sidered a probability for some time, but
the appointment of Mr. Horace Chilton
as his successors was not ouiy a sur
prise but a decided disappointment to
-1 i f i
the disinterested --31 r. Mills removal
from the Speakership contest would
have been a relief of friends as well as
to his rivals.
Secretary Blaine refuses to talk for
publication, but from several of his
friends L learn that lie should have
been used bv certain parties at the re
cent Republican L-agiie convention to
brittle Mr. Harrison, his chief; and it
;id(U to his disnleasure to know that he
can say nothimg that will not be mis
construed. If 1 he should say that
he isn't a candid ite and that he would
not accept the nomination, he knows
that he would be accused of declining
something that had not bren oft' red. to
him, therefore lie contents lumselr
with telling those who have a right 1o
ask huiHhat he is f.n- the renomina
tioirot Mr. II irrisoa. It irfs't for me
to criticiz.i Mr. Hi line's sincerity, hut
ivill civ t lint, if Mr. Blaine reaUv
vy.shes Mi. Harrison's nomination, he
will certainly get it.

more popular every djty, and one of
the principal objections to it that of
class legislation, is dissipated when it
is fully -understood. The principle

benefits that would accrue to the labor

at the time. These farm product; are
stored in a warehouse and wilt bu kept
by the govern. neut for one year, the
farmers receiving a warehou-e certifi
cate or receipt, said receipt keing nego
tiable. Its advantages are plain and
can be seen at a glance. The benefit
to the individual farmer is obvious at
once.' It is a well established fact that
the average farmer is pressed for money
right atttr harVt-st, having handled but
little money for a year, he is in debt
more or less, and creditors are crowd
ing him for their pay. Under these
cirscu instances he is compelled to haul
his -prodiue to market and take what
ever the grain broker sees ht to
him. for eah he has got to have
matter how low the price. No.v,
farmer is compelled to sell when every
one else. is selling, and, as a rule, he i
compelled to take the lowest price ot
the year. Now, this sub-treasury plan
would, make the farmer a capitalist on
a small scale, aud enable him to wait
for a raise, since he would have re
ceived 80 per cent, t-tf the value of -hi
products and would yet b:; its owner,
and any advance in price would inure
to his benefit. Now, as to the custo
mers, it is always against the best in
terests of the public at large, who con
sume the fanners" products, to have
"ivat HuetationN in nriee during the
year, but as it is now the fanner is by
necessity forced to sell in the fallT" ami
all his produce then 'o s into the
hands of tin; peculator, and it is to his
individual gain to enhance the price as
much as possible, aitiliciaby without
any regard to the natural laws of sup
nlv and demand. Thus it is that the
j middle men, brokers and sharp specu
lators, gain force to beat down the
price received by the farmer, then
combine to raise the p; ice enormously
high to the final consumer. ; Thus we
see, as aff drs are now run, these cun
ning schemer-, who do no productive
work at all, grow wonderfully rich by
robbing t lie consumers of their labor.
This unnatural condition of aff lir.s is
against public policy, just ice and right,
and against the well-being of the
farmers and consumers, indivilualiy
and collectively. This plan is in the
interest of producer and consumer, and
in i!itif ti thiMii it" should become a
. .1 1 I'
interest, and that the only hope of the
laborer to get out from tne bondage of
these speculator sharks is to get nearer
the farmer and aid each other in se
curing recognition by Congress of wise
and just legislation. Free Press, Vin
that is a profit. It would be to us, but

aiding him to secure enough on his
crops as soon as harvested, to me. t the
