the orgatiiz-ition wis entering the
mst Critical period of its existence,
a time when we and our principles
were to be subjected to the supremest

To 4iy we meet again. Let us see
what has been accomplished; what the
present status of "the organization -'is,
and what is our duly in the future.
Every reform movement has its vari
ous stages of growth and development.
Many. of -these .movements sooner or
later reach-the stage of disintgrution
and dsca) This has been the case"
when the cause has been slight or
local or temporary or when the people
failed to hnd the true cause tor a real
wrong and therefore could not apply
the true remedy. The cause of the
present movement is deep rooted and
widespread. It is one that in a large
degree affects alike every laborer and
wealth producer of the whole country.
A portion of those suffering from the
blighting effects of some great influ
ence caused, them to organize to study
the situation. Ihey formed themsel
ves into a great vigilance committee
to search for the ause, a cause that
made them poorer while each worked
harder and created more wealth, a
cause that has made p-or the people
whose labor has made their country
rich. Since this class ot men and this
condition existed in every quarter of
the country, the organization
ation soon spread over the whole coun
try. For years the cause or rather
the causes have been simultaneously
searched for and studied from Maine
to California and from the lakes to the
guif. The cause or part of the causes
were found. The whole org miz ition
ijgieed on them. The public generally
agreed that the evil causes existed. We
then appealed to the lawmakers of the
country fora remedy. Great sympathy
was expressed for our condition, but no
remedy was offered. The organiza-
liou then formulated its own remedies
for each cau.-e and appealed to the
law-makers to give us thes-f remedies.
They found fault with our remedies
We then demanded that they should
givet:!ose demands or something bet
ter. That, was fair. For if the wrongs
exi.-t, if unjust and-oppressive laws art
give cm the statute bo-djs, it is l he duty
of our lawmakers to give us relief, give
us our remedy or a better one. Up to
dale the demands of the people have
bejn ignored, while every request of tlu
monopoly corporations and tne monev
power has b- en promptly agreed to.
We have just realized t hit the organi
zation came too late tor iusticeto.be
uotton by petition. The people must
now submit like slaves or take politi-
Cil.-acti'in tor themselves.
While the organization has been
making this progress what has the
enemy been doing? and here we might
ask who the enemy is. When under
uuiust conditions a. certain class of
people are robbed of the fruits of their
labors, some other class gets and accu
mulates what the other lo-es. The
great majority have, been losing their
wealth, the fruits of their labors; a
small minority have been getting and
accumulating their wealth, earned am
produced by the niaior-ftv. Then the
enemy is this small class who are not
wealth-creators, but who are rapidly
accumulating the wealth of the coun
rni i - i t
try. i ins class and t hose who serve
them either for pay or from ignoranci
and party prejudice as forsooth many
or all ot us did until recently.
At first the enemy ignored the move
ment, thinking it would die for the
want of their co-idescen ding attention
But they had not comprehended the
deep and widespread causes theexistid
and were at work; the causes which
forced the people to organise for self
protection, for self preservation. Their
next move was to captors the o
ganization. In this and " their whole
fight on the organization their most
powerful agents have been the machine
politician, servile or hireling newspa
pers. They patted the organization
on the back and had the tools of plutoT
cracy to pose as the champions of thu
people and in some cases have smug
gled them into the fold of member
ship. This scheme was a partial
success. Some of these men, their
tools and hirelings, got into Congress
by the votes of the farmers and soon
showed who their masters were. by Yot
ing against the free coinage of silver
and every other measure of substan
tial relief for the people. During this
period they attacked, misrepresented,
abused, villified your officers and leaders,
while at the same time they professed
great interest in the organization.
They tried to break your con
fidence in your officers, hoping that
you would then be governed by their
advice. The great industrial confer
ence of labor organizations at St. L mis
put an end to. their scheme. The peo
ple were too poor to be fed on sympathy.
They were too well informed to be
cajoled, fl ittered or fooled by demngo
guery. They were too brave and cour
ageous lo be daunted by even the gi
gantic minions of aggregated capital.
That magnificent body of men; repre
senting the yeomanry, the laborers
and wealth producers f America met
with a solemn duty before them. They

was unity of thought, the duty of this

for the people; it is easy to' speculate
in reforms for selfish ends, but when the
hour for action comes, then is the su
preme test of patriotic courage aud
loyalty to the people's cause.
What is the ei.emy doing to preve it
unity of action? They are trying to
blind the great issues at stake by ap
peals to sectional prejudice. Their
scheme is to drown reform with preju
dice, to divide reformers with the cry
of force bill. This scheme will be
worked by politicians and the news
papers . backed by tremendous and pow

THE RALEI3II CONFERENCE.
On April 17th I called a conferen te of
he Alliance of the State through one
representative from each county. I
did it in the interest of our principles
and the cause of reform. While at
imes during the year many of us,
(though a unit in thought), have dif
fered in judgment as to methods, yet
to-day the organization is practically a
unit in action as well as thought. I
believe that the guidance of a divine
hand has turned what at times seemed
to be mistakes, into blessings."
Our seeming errors have proved to be
the essence of wisdom, tor by what,
methods could we have ben stronger
than vce are to-day ? Therefore let us
at all times have that charity of opin
ion for each brother, for we may hon
estly differ, that wo? have a right to ex
pect from each other brother.
DEATH OF COL. POLK.
During the year the organiz tion.
National as well as State, has suffered
an irreparable los, and each member i
has felt a sore bereavement by the un
timely death of our great and beloved
leader, Col. L. L. Polk. We have never
known a purer man, nor has any organ
ization ever been blessed with a more
ardent, devoted and loyal leader, yet.

with him in opinion, and his spirit of
fairness toward those who opposed him
was almost sopcrhamai. His ureat

lives aftec him, 'and is lo-daT and in

the courage of his convictions and to
carry on the 'work for humanity so
grandly and henoeally begun. Let
