THE PROTEST OF THE FARMER.
An Adtlroan to tho Alllanco by Froaldont
L. L. Pollr.
C0NTItJl!KI FltOM I.AHT WKKK.
On questions of linuncc, on lcgisla
lation for the relief of tho people, there
ih n liighr court in this country than
even our supremo judiciary. l sits
enthroned in Wall street, reveling in
tho strength of itn ill-gotten power,
and lovit'H tribute at will on tho indus
trial energies of the people.
In the coining contest between labor
and capital, "Financial Kefonn" must
and will be, tho tdogun and rallying
cry of tho people They want gold
robbed of its power to oppress. Tlioy
demand that silver shail bo restored to
all tho rights in coinage and to all the'
qualities of legal tender which gold
possesses. Thoy demand that tho circu
lating medium of tho country shall bo
ibsued direct to tho people at a low
rate of interest and in sufficient vol
ume to do tho business of tho country,
and that in whatever form it may bo
issued, if it bear tho imprint of the
government and is denominated a dol
lar, that it shall bo worth ono hundred
cents in payment of all duos, public
and private. Thoy demand tho prohi
bition of gambling in futures of all
agricultural and mechanical products.
Thoy beliovo that every acre of our
publio domain should bo secured to
actual settlors, and that not ono foot
of our territory should bo held except
by citizens of Ibis country. Thoy be
liovo that barriers should bo erected
between corporate power and tho
rights of tho people. Thoy favor ab
solute governmental control of trans
portation and telegraph lines, because
thoy profor that tho government should
control these great agoncies of power,
rather than that thoy should control
tho government. Thoy demand a just
systom of graduated tax on incomes.
Thoy doiuaud that an amendment to
tho Constitution shall bo submitted to
tho people, by which United Stales
Eonators Bhall bo elected by a direct
voto of tho people. Thoy boliovo that
no intorost, or class, or industry, should
bo taxed to build up any othor intor
cst, or class, or industry. Thoy do
mand that all rovonucs shall bo limited
to tho necessary oxpensos of an hon
estly and economically administered
government. From these groat ques
tions thov cannot and will not bo di
verted. Hvon tho protectivo tariff,
with all its abominable iniquities
cannot supplant them. Force bills,
'bloody shirts," tho cry of "nogro su
premacy in tho South," and of "robols"
in tho North, will loso all tho powor of
their baleful charm in the presence of
Uioko great, overshadowing questions.
Tho great mass of tho industrial
classes, North and South, democrats
and republicans, without regard to
sectional or geographical lines, with
ono purpobo and with ono heart, havo
looked their hands and shields in a
common causo Iho cuuso of a coin
moH country. Tho ovils under which
thoy suffer, and which threaten tho
destruction of the republic and its in
stitutions, are national in their charac
ter and cannot he corrected by koctionul
romodio. Hence, recognizing but
ono Hag tho Hug of our common
country impelled by a common ptu
jMibo, iiDtuatud by a common motive,
coufrontyl by a coinmsm dmxor, thoy
UMVti omiily rolvl to turn tholr
backs upon the past and make ono
mighty effort to rescuo our govern-
taent and institutions from impending
I peril. They havo wiped out, and for
i over, tho last traco of Mason and Dix-
on's lino across alliance territory. Af
1 rican slavery is gone, thank God, and
' in the spirit of manly magnanimity
and fraternity the allianccmcn of tho
i "blue" 'and tho allianccmcn of tho
"gray" say : "Let tho bitterness, ani
: mositics and predjudiccs, born of its
t existence, perish with it and forever. '
The proud Saxon spirit, and courage,
and patriotism, which crowned the
heroism of tho 'blue and the gray"
with undying fame, are now sum
moned to break tho galling and de
grading chains of white slavery, tho
slaveryof honest labor, and how fitting
that they should lend in this glorious
struggle for God and humanity.
Yo bravo men of tho North 1 who
stood by tho stars and stripes with a
devotion and a courago that would
havo added now luster to tho splendor
of Homo's legions in her palmiest days
yo bravo men of the South! who
stood by the sinking star of a doomed
cause while you boro in your manly
hearts a more forlorn hope than that
which inspired the six hundred at
13alaklava America's heroes I Did
yo win glory in the dread conflict of
Standing now under tho alliance
banner, on whoso folds glows in radi
ant beauty : "On earth, peace, good
will to men," how grandly and resplon
dently sublime that glory shall become
when crowned with your nobler
achievements as citizens in peace 1
Grant and Lee, Jackson and Mc
Fherson, Sherman and Johnston,
Stowart and Custer, with thousands of
their bravo and devoted followers, havo
crossed over tho Kiver, and are bivou
acked under tho uhado of tho trees,
where thoy will rest peacefully until
tho archangel shall sound tho final
roveillo and summon them to tho
Grand Koviow on the Eternal Plains.
Lot tho living, and those who aro to
follow us, rcmomber only their virtue
their superb manhood and heroism.
Inscribe it on imperishable tablet!
Embalm it in undying hong? Lot tho
genius of pencil and chisel embellish
it with its most resplendent inspira
tion! Lot famo place it among her
richest treasures in tho Pantheon of
Immortality, and let tho time-swopt
harp of tho ages swell in grander strain
tho giant anthem of its praiso!
Fathers, brothers, husbands and
sons, who aro nroro profoundly inter
ested and coneornod in all that per
tains to tho pence, tho happiness, and
prosperity of our country than tho
noblo women of tho land? Thoy arc
hero tonight. I would bo false to
them, false to tho occasion, false to
the alliance, and false to myself, did I
fail to tender to thorn my profound
acknowledgements for tho honor thoy
havo thus done mo. Proud as wo aro,
and should bo, of tho splendid rocord
of tho American soldiery to which I
havo reforred, yet in honor of her pa
tient endurance, hor devotion, hor
constancy and her suporb moral cour
ago, wo stand uneovored in her pres
ence. Do you ask mo for a model of
moral heroism? I would not go to
tho muster rolls of tho splendid armies
of a Grant or a Leo; 1 would not point
to the waving plume in victorious bat
tle, but 1 would point you to that
isolated country homo, with its canw
and trials, its loneliness and anxieties
in sickness and in health, presided
over by tho queenly spirit of hor whoso
hours of anguish through four long
years of war wore more trying than
tho ordeal of battle.
And 1 would summon all tho grand
old horoos among tho living, and the
spirits of our immortal dead, and align
thorn in her prosonco and ask thorn to
join mo in saluting hor as tho queen
of tho heroes of tho world.
A colebratod English barrister when
defending a criminal, was reminded
by tho court that ho was extending
his( argument to very great length.
Turning to his honor ho said: "He
member,, sir, that 1 am pleading for
tho lifo of a human being 1"
My frionds, if in my zoal I have
transcouded tho proprieties of tho oc
casion and havo wearied your patience,
I enter the plea in extenuation that 1
am pleading for tho lifo of the republic
and tho liberties of tho people.

Wo aro taking steps to tho establish
ment of local places to buy goods,
groceries etc., and it is the intention
of tho alliance to stand lirm together

Our fourth passed off very quietly
and although wo did not expect to
celebrate in regular stylo we met in
the beautiful grovo of W. D. Emclc
near tho school house and had a fine
dinner mostly alliance grub. After
wo had gazed on the beautiful Hag pre
sented to tho peoplo bv tho city of
Union, as it unfurled itself proudly in
tho breeze, raised by tender hands (not
any the less strong) of tho ladies of the
Park and valley, our hearts throbbed
with delight and our Fourth was spent
in a way long to be remembered.
Long live the Park and Big creekers.

tion of people, gieat, fat, honest men
