The Farmers' Alliance, a an
organization, has no icmesenta
lives in either branch of the pies
out Congress, but judging from
the large number about a dozen
of bills providing for the freu
coinage of silver that have been
been introduced into both Ihiiimi
and senate it is evident thiit a
lumber of gentlemen belonging
to both the republican and demo
cratic parties believe with lho Al
liauco- that the country's ii-oet
pressing wed is an inerenm in the
amount of money in circulation.
The census returns ahow that
like the Indian and lho buffalo,

and the farm, tho mining lovvn
and cities that are springing up '
all over what was once tlm alnu-l

the cowboy, are numboicd. Thus
tho evolution goes on; Hint the (

to a large number or people in

iieiking their'eutries were unable
to take a full quarter section, and
under tho present laws have been
prevented from taking lands un

when it becomes a'law, will allow
