Col. Harry Skinner is out in a card' in
which he advises all county conventions
to adopt as near as possible the State
platform of '90, but says lie will work to
incorporate the sub-treasury in a plat
form to be adopted by his congressional
district convention. The platform of 0
demanded abolition of national banks
and issuing of legal tender government
notes in sufficient volume to do the busi
ness of the country on a cash ba-is, t he
free coinage of sjjvcr and prohibiting
alien ownership of land. All Alliance
measures. Some of our rabid democratic
editors say there will be no 0..a!a vagu
