The Supremo Council of the Na

annual session on last Tuesday, 17th,
adjourned -to-night at midnight.
This is n city of 125,090 popula

road ccmr in the world. Oh ac
count of ignorance, prejudice aim
self-interest (with some, one; and
with iany, probably all combined)
the place is very hostile to the Alii,

thousand indhit place (and tho same
will apply to all largo eities) has re
alized the objects and inagnilud of
this sreat movement. But their
eyes have to ome extent been open
ed. The newspapers here had pre
pared, before fie delegates arrived,
a lot of caricatures with which to
ridicule the appearance of th 4,hay
seeders." But wht-n the body as
sembled and the reporters saw a fine
lot of solid, brainy and determined
men, het were taken back entirely.
So, instead of ridiculing tha body in
a spirit of contempt, they began to
abuse and misrepresent them in a

At a dinner recently given the
raembcis of the press In !New York
a journalist was called upon to reply
to the toast "An Independent Press."
Knowing we have no independent
press among the powerful papers of
the nation, he for a long time refus
ed to repiv, but being iusisted on to
do so, said :
"There is no such a thing in Amer
ica as an indepei dent press, unless
it .s out in the country towns. You
are all slaves. You know it and
know it. There is not one of you
who daie express an honest opinion.
If you express it you know before
hand that It will not appear in print.
I am paid $150 a week for keeping
honest opinins out of the papers I
am connected with. Others of you
aro paid similar salaries for doing
similar things. If I should allow
honest opinions to be printed in one
issue of my pater, like Othello, my
occupation would be pone. The
man who would be so foolish as to
write honest opinions would be" out
on the street "looking for another
job. The business of leading journ
alists is to distort the truth, to be
outright, to pervrt, to villify, to
fawn at the leet of mammon, and
to sell his country and his race for
his daily bread, or for what is about
the same, his salary. You know
this, and 1 know it and what foole
ry to be toasting an independent
press ? We are the tools and vessels
of rich men behind the screens, we
are jumping jacks. They pull the

During the late session of tho Su

the following resolution was outr;l
by Mtrion Butler of Jforth Candid

By motion the committee war
made a standing one to make a fiiKi?
report at the next annual meeting.
Several resolutions ralative to acre
age, maiketiug, etc., were introdiu:
ed by L. F. Livingston, of Oeoigi?.;
It. F. ltogers, of Florida, and others.
The tommP.tee madea partial report
by offering as a substitute the ft 1

Whereas, The cotton growers of
the South aro greatly v. ppresstfd lie

raw material, caused, in a measure,
from combines and speculations in
in futures, but mainly from an un
just, oppressive and discnmuiat;:!
linancial system and a high protec
tive tiriff on manufactured cotton
Whereas, It is now alleged by
speculators and combines that over-
ptoduction is the prune eauso ot de
pression in prices, when, in h'.ct, we
have reason to know that the t?:iu.
is not over-pioduction, but imdr-
consumplion caused uy inability o.
buy resulting from advanced prices
of manufactured articles of cotton
and other causes as stated above; and
Whereas, It has been recommenc
ed by members of the Farmers' Al
liance in several Stats in the cott n
belt, that the acreage be decreased
one-third by the growers, and know
ing, as we do, that the price of vhe
raw material cannot be affected by
the loyal Alliancemen alone of tiie
many thousand growers aecveji-su--

like that from Kansas, wtich said that
thePeople'8 party had gone to pieces
when it cast a vote 10 per cent, larger
than last year, when it had the assistance
of Democratic support! The great weak
ness of the independent movement to
day is the fact that it has not adequate
and honest newspaper representation.
This is a fault which must be remedied.
When our own members are sometimes
deceived by the enemy's malicious lies,
it is not to be wondered that the outside
public believes all that is said of us.
This point of newspaper representa
tion was one more than any other brought
to the front by the ablest leaders at In

be eliminated, aud it can be. I am no

You cannot be a good Alliance man so
